Taste of Darkness (Darkness, #2) by Katie Reus

Taste of Darkness (Darkness, #2)Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I so enjoyed this one better than book 1. It was so much tension, angst, sexual tension, action, emotion, violence. I was on the edge of my seat the entire book. I wanted to know who sold Drake out. I wanted to Drake and Victoria to end up together. I wanted all the secondary characters to end up with their crushes. Man! I hope Bran and Keelin get their story told. I hope Rhea and Connall do.

I can say the only con with this book was that Drake's parents did not wake up. I really wanted to witness their reunion. Hopefully, in Keelin's story they'll awaken.

Dakota's Claim (The Grizzly MC, #9) by Jenika Snow

Dakota's Claim (The Grizzly MC, #9)Dakota's Claim by Jenika Snow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So its not a surprise that this book was delicious. Jenika knows how to write sexy men and f*$%able/easy to fall in love with women. I have been chomping at the bit for Dakota's story. I just knew it was going to rock my world and it did.



I loved Dakota's intensity towards Tawny and that he showed Grizzly's weren't the only ones with animalistic tendencies. I can't wait for Drevin's story as well as the rest of the next generation BOM MC and Grizzly MC stories.

Steamy and sensual this book was




I was all kinds of ready for these two.


They had me burning UP the way they went at each other! hehe


Another great read.

Blood Assassin (The Sentinels, #2) by Alexandra Ivy

Blood Assassin (The Sentinels, #2)Blood Assassin by Alexandra Ivy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First off all why would you end the story like that?



WHY WHY WHY!!!?

I loved it, but why. lol

I don't usually read this author often, but whenever I do I remember why I read her. Her books are action packed and always have you on the edge of your seat. There are time crunches mixed in with time crunches. Gotta save Molly, gotta save Serra, gotta figure out the criminal mastermind (there are SO MANY) behind the mastermind which means gotta save the world. My mind was in a whorl, but I loved it.

I cannot wait to read more about the Sentinels, Assassins, Highbloods and The Mave.

Justified (ALFHA LAW Series #1) by Aurora Rose Reynolds





After the first sighting, he’s fascinated.

After the first smile, he’s infatuated.

By the first kiss, he’s obsessed.

Nolan sees Chloe through a window of a bakery in downtown Manhattan. At first sight, something about her calls to a piece of him he thought was lost. Without thinking, he begins watching her, and when the moment presents itself, he strikes, claiming Chloe for himself. For a man who is used to getting what he wants Nolan wont let anyone or anything stand in his way.


Review
I already knew that when I received my ARC that I was going to enjoy it. I say that because there are authors that you pre-order and auto-buy just based on their previous works. Aurora Rose Reynolds (ARR) is one of those authors and I had no reason to believe that Justified would be any different. I do recall her offering a small warning that the main character Nolan was Alpha times ten and some may not be okay with it. 


I started the book while on my lunch break at work and BOY BOY BOY! The first phrase in the book says it all. Nolan is incredibly possessive, jealous, determined, and focused.  And his attention is centered on Chloe, a woman he happened to see in a bakery window.  Nolan doesn’t pull any punches and immediately pursues her. I have to admit I was a little put off by, not how he began to pursue her but her reaction to it. She was a little too accepting of a strange man walking her home. Unrealistic to me. I did however enjoy how protective he was towards her. I suppose her character called for Nolan’s type of character, a knight in shining armor. 


I was also a bit thrown off by the length of this read. It was less than 100 pages and I am accustomed to 100+ pages from ARR, but its length didn't inhibit this spicy read. Nolan is a sex god and we all should be so lucky. :) I definitely enjoyed this glimpse into the ALFHA LAW Series, but I didn’t like the villain. For the sake of not spilling the beans of the story I’ll leave it as I would’ve preferred a more believable villain [mastermind] behind it all. Though, this wasn’t a deal breaker for me – Aurora Rose Reynolds remains on my auto-buy list.

REVIEW

 I have been in a constant state of readiness ever since I read Incandescent and was introduced to Sy and Holly. I do love me some Kadence and Nix, but I really enjoyed Sy and Holly. If ever there was a couple that deserved to be together – it’s them. If ever there were two individuals, who based upon their past experiences, could help the other out – it’s them. From book one in the Knights Rebel series you are introduced to Sy’s character quiet, sullen, brooding and you are introduced to Kadence’s ball of thunder aka her best friend Holly. One would think the two would rub each other the wrong way seeing as how they have two opposite personalities, but you can literally feel the heat emanating from these two. Piggybacking from book 1 you know why Holly is damaged and the first portion of this book fills you in on Sy’s background. Based on the introduction of these two characters from Book 1 I strongly suggest that you read that one first.

 In my opinion, the best part of this book was the friendship that developed between Sy and Holly. You were actually able to have a front row seat to the beginning of their "relationship" and the ups and downs of its intensity at the same time that Holly was able to take steps toward handling her recent loss. If you enjoyed Book 1 you'll fall in love with Book 2.

Shadow Watcher (Darkness #6) by K.F. Breene

In the wake of ridding their territory of a menace, Sasha has only one pressing duty left: find more human magic workers. And while it is undoubtedly important on some grand scale, the task is, in itself, surprisingly uneventful. That is, until a strange predator takes an interest in her and Charles on their trek home one evening. In the space of twenty-four hours Sasha's life goes from mundane to being stalked and threatened. A new shifter has moved into town, and if the whispered rumors are to be believed, something even more sinister is lurking behind, watching and waiting for the right moment to spring.
But that isn't the only element that turns Sasha's life upside down. She has one hell of a secret that will change her and Stefan's life forever.


 REVIEW


I love the Darkness series! I stumbled upon the series on Facebook when an author posted a “what are you reading” call. I read the synopsis and was hooked. I have read all of the books and could not wait to get ahold of Shadow Watcher. The one and only thing I must say that I found lacking with this book…its length. I wanted a good couple hundred pages to cheese over, but alas it was not meant to be though I can assume the author has great things in store for me. (Can’t say more without posting a spoiler alert) If you’re familiar with the other books in the Darkness series you already know who Sasha and Stefan are. If not, Stefan is the vampire Boss of the area and Sasha is his Mage mate. There is a butt load more behind this, but that’s why you should read Books 1-6.


In my honest opinion this entire series has never been tedious or boring. I never felt as if I read the same thing in a previous book. Sasha is the main focus of all of the books and her personality is amazing. She is so personable and I can see myself in her sometimes. (Great way to get a reader hooked ) The love scenes remain smoking hot and the fights and clashes in Stefan and Sasha’s relationship are incredibly realistic. Stefan’s reactions ring true to someone who has lived hundreds of years and Sasha’s first response is a great representation of someone who grew up the way she did cue the orphan flashbacks. As mentioned before I do wish this book was longer, but I know #7 is going to be chockfull of action, sex, magic, fighting, death, backstabbing, introduction of new characters, power struggles the list goes on. All you really know starting this book is that something even more life changing than usual is about to take place. Trust me, it does not disappoint.
