SPOILERS NOT HIDDEN IN THIS REVIEW

WHY VAMPIRES SUCK AS ROMANTIC LEADS BY CARMEN
1.) They're cold. And dead. This is not sexy.
2.) I don't want to hurt my lover, and I don't want to be hurt by my lover. Pain during sex is not appealing (to me).
3.) Someone kissing your neck = yum.
Someone nibbling/biting your neck = yum.
Getting hickeys = yum.
Someone taking their razor-sharp teeth and plunging them into your carotid artery = yuck.
Your blood gushing out into someone's mouth = yuck.

I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could. Although it took me a while to finish this book because of outside factors, I thought it was pretty awesome. My one complaint is I think the ending was a bit rushed. This might be the hottest book that I have read by GS so far. The love scenes were pretty steamy. One thing I liked is that Gray has a very large POV in this story. It's really cool to see a romance from the guy's perspective. And I feel that his viewpoint read pretty authentic for a guy. He did a ...more

While I enjoyed this book I didn't find it as interesting as the first one. It had some amazing parts where I found myself sighing like a 15-year old and then some others where I thought: ARE YOU SERIOUS?

IMHO the problem with this installment was that it lacked everything I loved about book one. I adored the Dragon warriors, for me they are the most interesting species because I have never read about them before, while I got a bit bored of gods, vampires and demons. I was exhilarated about readi

(Atlantis,#2) I love Grayson James! Gray is an OBI agent sent to Atlantis to obtain the Jewel of Dunamis. I enjoyed learning more about the different creatures of Atlantis. This book has nonstop action, adventure, and romance from beginning to end.

I normally wouldn't have sought this out on my own, but it was selected for my fantasy book club. (I have this thing about covers with shirtless muscled men raising a red flag as far as quality in a book, and in this case, my bias was entirely correct). I live for a good action-packed and sexy pulp-fantasy romp, but this ain't it, folks...

Maybe this book deserves more like 2.5 stars. It started out strong. The hero was amusing with some good one liners that made me laugh. The descriptions of th

I liked this book better than Heart of the Dragon (book 1). I think this is because book 1 of a series always has to set the stage (so to speak) and gets bogged down in extraneous details.

The mystery of Atlantis has always fascinated me and even though this series puts a different spin on the legend, I still loved it and read it in only 3 hours.

The second book in the Atlantis series. Atlantis is a world hidden below the ocean by the gods to contain all of their creations before the humans. The only way in is to discover one of two secret portals...guarded by men that can change into dragons and are ordered to kill all who try to come in.

Grayson James has managed to sneak through these fearsome guardians (not sure how) in search of the mythical Jewel of Dunamis. A jewel that has the power to tell the future, read minds, and separate lie

I love Gena Showalter. The worlds, people, creatures, relationships all seem so real.

There are only two things I'll throw stones at her for.
1. This book, possibly this whole series. After this book, I don't have the desire to continue reading them. It was WAY too sexual. I don't mind sex in books...obviously- I mostly read paranormal romance these days. BUT this book just grated on my nerves. I had to push myself to finish it. All the main characters thought about was sex sex sex. Arg! I mean

Gray James is sent to Atlantis through a portal to find the Jewel of Dunamis. His employer, the Otherworld Bureau of Investigations, discovered a book detailing the many dangers native to Atlantis. Unfortunately for Gray none of them took the book too seriously. After being hunted by vampires and demons, Gray knows that all the information was correct. When he's in a tight situation someone suddenly speaks to him in his mind and helps him make it out alive. Gray isn't sure whether he can trust t ...more

I’m so annoyed I have to give this 4.5 stars and not 5! The very last scene is just not worthy of 5 no matter how much the rest of the book is worth. The final scene is the pinnacle and this one, although a perfect ending, was not well presented. Arg!

This was quite a cute story aside from the horrible life of the heroine prior to the hero’s entrance. Jewel/Pru/Blaze and other hilarious names is the very much coveted Jewel of Dunamis, one of the most powerful entities in Atlantis. Grayson Jame

This is a hard book to rate. I thought the first 100 pages and the last 30 pages were awesome! Other than that, I felt that the middle of the book was slow and that the h/h didn’t have much chemistry. The only other problem I had with this book was the swearing. Now, I’m not a prude, and I don’t mind swearing. However, this felt like it was swearing for no reason, that Ms. Showalter had some type of quota and put them in whenever she felt like it. I believe that swearing needs to be put only in ...more

Firstly, Gray is a pale blonde, what in the hell is Johnny Knoxville doing on the front of the book? Gray is there to steal a jewel that can figure out if people are lying and tell the future. It ends up the jewel is Jewel, who has had a psychic link to him all of his life. Now he has to try to save her from the demons that have kidnapped her and figure out what he is going to do with her once she's safe. Cute book, stale jokes. I think this is only the second book I've read by the author. I bou ...more

This is my first time reading anything by Gena Showalter, and I doubt it will be my last. I absolutely loved the world that built in this book! The characters were so interesting (both the good and the bad) that I couldn't help flying through the pages.
The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I felt the ending was sort of rushed. There were a lot of things that weren't explained fully enough (for me, anyway). Maybe some of the answers are in the next book? At any rate, I'

"Passing out in front of a woman was bad enough. Passing out in front of Jewel and muttering Kilgon was an ego killer. He'd tried his damnedest to make her see him as strong, capable. Invincible."

This book is about Grayson James a human gone in Atlantis in search of the Jewel of Atlantis. It has been said that whoever possesses the Jewel will have power over his enemy. Yet as skilled as he is he finds himself lost in the wilds of Atlantis with no hope of completing his task. His only help comes from a woman's voice in his head. She helps him deal with the dangers of Atlantis. Her only payment for her help is to be free of the plush prison that she's been surrounded with. As he rescues he ...more

I loved this book. Gray was the perfect man. His sense of humor and him just being a pervert had me cracking up. His attitude just made him sexy and hot. It was just so sweet at the end how he just wanted to protect her and treat her like he had never treated any other woman. It was just sweet. He turned into such a thoughtful guy. And just reading some parts just had me smiling from ear to ear. It's a great book!

This story has all that and more. It is enchanting although complex. Showalter outdoes herself with her own blend of fantastic story telling in this book. The main character Grayson James and Jewel have a long but unknown history. When he is sent to Atlantis to find this gem artifact and destroy it little does he know that it is actually a person. Jewel is the artifact he is looking to find and destroy and she has her own set of problems! Will Grayson come to h

I didn't like it as much as I loved the first one, but it was still a pretty great read, heaps of action and steamy scenes. I didn't much care for the lead female character Jewel, but the male lead had some spunk to him.
Tammy
The ending was too abrupt, it was almost as if the author hit the max number of pages and had to cut it short which did not do the story justice. The finale needed to be longer and some of the areas in the beginning and middle could have been cut shorter because they dragged. The big fight at the end was practically nothing, as if it took 5 minutes and then it was done. The wrap up was extremely abrupt. This book was my least favourite of the series so far which was sad because it held a lot of ...more

This book was beyond enjoyable for me. It possessed every quality that I look for in a great read. It was an action packed, high flying adventure, danger and passion around every corner kind of read! It reminded me a lot of Kresley Coles plotlines/writing style but seeing how her and Showalter are close friends that didn't suprise me. They probably bounce ideas off eachother constantly!
I think I may have fallen a little bit in love with the hero in this book. He is everything I love in a male an

Keep in mind that this is an adult book, and there are explicit details!
"Only one unspoken rule existed. The two vastly different creations, humans and Atlanteans, were never to meet, never to interact, never to fall in love.
Someone should have told Grayson James."

"This is for you," he said.

Wow...loved this one! Even more than the last. I totally fell in love with both of these characters and wish the story hadn't come to an end. The story is fast paced and exciting and I loved the passion between these two.

Gray is a human OBI agent searching for the Jewel of Dunamis. The jewel has immense powers and in the wrong hands it's a very powerful weapon. When he finds it, Gray intends to either hand it over to his employers or destroy it.

Jewel of Atlantis, book 2 in Gena Showalter’s Atlantis series, kicks off with Grayson ‘Gray’ James venturing through the forests of Atlantis and fighting to remain in one piece as he searches for Dunamis.

And from the word go, I just didn’t like him.

Having read and loved the first book in the series, Heart of the Dragon, I was eager to read the second to see if it would be just as good. Unfortunately, the hero didn’t appeal in the slightest. Gray is a walking hard-on, and it doesn’t make him man
