Another amazing ride with Charley and Reyes. Not sure if I'll write a full review, but I'll try ;)

The release date was moved from 2013 to October 30th 2012!!!!
Not usually a fan girl but I will make an exception: Eeeeeeeeeeek! Sooooo Happy right now!! *does happy dance*

For some reason I had thought that this would be a trilogy...hmmm, I am not complaining!*Fist Pump*

4.5 stars

Considering I have a ton of ARCs I should really be catching up on, and considering how much I love Charley, I really should have known better than to tell myself, "Just one chapter!" But it didn't even take a chapter, I was hooked by the opening paragraph.

'I sat watching the Buy From Home Channel with my dead aunt Lillian and wondered what my life would've been like had I not just eaten an entire carton of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Therapy with a mocha latter chaser. Probably about t...more

Spoilers and Rant

-The majority of the story was predictable and pointless. The book begins with Charley moaning about her agoraphobia — she's not left her flat or worked a case for 2 months since she was tortured. Anyway, that changes quickly enough when she takes on a case for a woman who's been tormented by a mystery somebody and just like that Charley's agoraphobia and emotional scars seem to vanish and she goes on her merry way to investigate the girl's tormentor. There were a few times Char...more

After what happened in the last book, Charley is going through some heavy stuff. She's having a hard time sleeping and spending most of her money at the Buy From Home Channel. Thank goodness Cookie comes to the rescue and puts a stop to that. And also thank goodness for Harper showing up...a new client!

Well, by now you should be used to this crazy paced story line. I'm always amazed at all the different events going on. Naturally, you can figure out some of the puzzles but I really love...more

I really can't wait for this next book. Sigh~ Unfortunately, I have to wait for it for a year. I really LOVE this Book Series! I really like the personalities of all the characters in the book. Please Darynda Jones!! Don't take it a year for you to finish a book! 'I'm dying here' *wink* XD

Charley, Charley, Charley. You make me laugh every single freaking time. The craziness, the ADD, the obvious, and of course the follow through. I find reviews on books that are a few into the series tough. Because why review, I think most people have already made up their mind if they are going to continue a series or not. Is my review going to really sway someone? So I will just post my favorite quotes, well just a few actually, because if I posted them all it be a chapter or two itself.

Can we please take a moment & bow our heads for the hotness that is Reyes?
Whew. I needed that.

The last 15% of this book was AMAZING!
It was nice learning a bit more about Charley, her past, her beginnings, her abilities BUT I NEED MORE.
I was truly baffled at the turn in Harper's case, did not see that coming.
Denise ... I think she's trying .... not enough, but she's trying.
Glad to see Charley & Gemma bonding.

3.5 stars

As all of you know, I’m a big fan of these book series and I was really excited about reading this book, especially after the way things ended up in the last one. The biggest reasons for that are: the amazing writing style of the author, a unique and interesting storyline and most of all I like them, because these are one of those rare books where I actually like the main female character Charley The Grim Reaper almost as her tall, dark & hot bad boy Reyes.

That’s a really big plus...more

LOVED IT. Ms. Jones rocked it, again. She had me laughing, snorting and giggling like a child through much of the story. There was the sniffling and worrisome parts too, it's not always fun an jokes for Charley and Co.
Charley gets to put her crazy on and dip into the pool of hoarding for sanity, it's too good I can't spill more. She also gets lusty with a few guys, oh yeah, she is smoking sexy. : D Her expectations of what life would be like when Reyes was finally freed have not happened, darn...more

Darynda has outdone herself again! Seriously, it gets better with each book in this series! It was interesting to see a different side of Charley (I really felt for her after what she went through in the previous book) and we get to know Reyes better too. The one thing I'm tiny bit miffed about is there wasn't a lot of Swopes.

I pressed my lips together, then said, “Stalker.”

“Nut.”

I gasped. “Neanderthal.”

“Fruitcake.”

“Ape.”

“Psychopath.”

Why did his [Reyes] entire repertoire of insults question my mental stability?


We open with Charley, still dealing with the effects from the events that ended book 3, Third Grave Dead Ahead. She was tortured in her own apartment and is having a bit of trouble coming to terms with that, understandably so. Her way of dealing?...more

This series never fails to entertain me. I love Reyes and Charley and Cookie and the rest of the superb characters! And if you're still living under a rock, I suggest you move yourself out and start reading the Charley Davidson series.

Favorite quotes:

“Your existence gives me a headache. Go stand over there.”

“After searching for a space, I parked behind the tattoo parlor in front of a sign that said NO PARKING. Since it didn't specify to whom it was referring, I figured it couldn't possibly be

Darynda Jones, I could kiss you for this book. I really could.

I have been such a huge fan of this series since I read the first three books in February 2012. The thought of waiting until now to read this book actually made me feel a little sick... but here we are and it was so worth the wait.
I didn't think Jones could top the previous book, but she did it. I loved every single page, every word. I couldn't put it down.

Dear Darynda Jones,

I love you. But I *think* I love this cover more.

Another amazing installment on this terrific UF series.

THE BEST OF THE SERIES:

1) The fun-to-dye-for humor. I love Charley. She is something else. Everything that comes out of her mouth makes me laugh so bad! I adore her and her hilarious way of behaving and thinking.

2) THE freaking-gorgeous-and-mysterious Hero. As if being the son of Satan isn't enough our sexy Reyes has some big secrets coming to get known in this installment.

Just one tiny thing I didn't like:

1) This is the fact that other t...more
Jennifer (a.k.a The Book Nympho)
I have to start off with saying how much I love the narration of this series. After listening to all the other books in the series I can't bring myself to read the new releases even when I have a chance at an ARC. Lorelei King just brings Charley to life in such a great way that I now have her voice in my head and cannot enjoy reading the books.

Fourth Grave is my favorite in the series so far.

Charley and Reyes relationship gets more involved now that he finally has a physical body when they are...more

Well I'll be... The son of (view spoiler) just became my newest book boyfriend...:). I really enjoyed this one but after four books in I was hoping to get more than what I got , story wise. I understand in the first few Charley was just starting to see her world with new eyes and was processing all the new info but I really wanted her to deal and try to discover her story in this one and that just didn't happen. So that left me a little miffed . That and the fact that I st...more

Amazing as always! Darynda did it again! Kind of a surpise at the end too. Loved it!

Only two things in life are certain. Guess which one I am.--Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet exceeded my expectations. Way exceeded them! Charley Davidson has a heart of gold and is one of the most wittiest and entertaining heroines in an Urban Fantasy series I've read to date. You gotta love a girl who names her boobs Will Robinson and Danger!

Charley Davidson is a hot mess. After the betrayal by her father and Reyes, and being to...more

Soooo...

I loved this book just as much as the first 3, but I have to get this off my chest.

It's starting to bug me that there is almost NO development in the relationship between Charley and Reyes. It's always the same thing: they are angry at each other for lots of reasons, but as soon as you put them in the same room they are in a life-or-death situation, where Reyes jumps in and cuts through her attacker's spine, or he is all over her lady parts and very much into heavy petting. (the latter I...more

Another solid installment in the Charley Davidson series. I still really liked it, but I didn't completely love it because there is a big issue that I want to see resolved that just seems determined not to go all the way there.

The story starts out with Charley as a shut-in (in Cookie's apartment, not her own) with lots of crap bought from TV infomercials and no plans to ever leave the apartment building. She has not heard from Reyes in over two months. She also not spoken to her father in pretty...more

Five Stars! I just cannot get enough of Charley and this series!

After the events that occurred at the terrifying and stunning conclusion of Third Grave Dead Ahead, we find our beloved Charley a prisoner in her own apartment. Buried behind mountains of cardboard boxes, as she has become an avid shopping network customer. Afraid to venture out of her apartment and nearly broke, Charley spends hours buying useless stuff and spending herself out of house and home. Thankfully, Cookie shows up and giv...more

*snif*

Done with this one as well. The other one isn't out until July. I want it NOW!:(



After the events of the previous book our fearless heroine has gone from being afraid of nothing to being afraid of her own shadow. She can't sleep at nights, can't get out of the apartment, can't trust anyone. It was interesting to see what happens to someone who thought herself invinsible when she comes face to face with death!



But our little Grim Reaper isn't about to let her fears run her life(well not compl...more

Only two things in life are certain. Guess which one I am.
- Charley Davidson, GRIM REAPER



Let's just say that our kick ass heroine isn't in the best place right now...after she was tortured by that evil man and everything went awry, Charley have been closed off at her home for months now.
She is angry at her dad, at Reyes but most of all she feels fear, and for someone that was so unafraid and was willing to took so many risks, the fear is crippling.

But she can't keep avoiding the world and he...more

Can I give ten stars? Twenty? Because, really, this series deserves more than five stars! This book has it all: a badass heroine that finds herself in the most impossible situations all the time, a sexy as hell (pun intended) man that sometimes wants to kill her but most of the times wants to have his wicked way with her and too many ghosts with enough problems as well!

After the events of the previous book Charley isn’t exactly the same anymore. OK, she is sarcastic and crazy for coffee still, b...more
