Fire Me Up (Aisling Grey #2)
Fire Me Up was infinitely more funny than You Slay Me. Don't get me wrong, YSM had some pretty hilarious happenings, but there was so much entertaining dialogue in FMU that it takes the cake. (So far.)
And I love the way that the characters were built up even more in this book.
Ash is becoming more observant to things around her, although some things still escape her until the very end, but I suppose that's to be expected since she isn't the reader and doesn't have every detail together ...more
Sometimes you just need a book that will lighten up your day. Katie MacAlister’s Aisling Grey series always makes me laugh. The characters are hilarious. The situations they find themselves in are also quite funny. Be prepared for silliness.
Aisling Grey has taken on yet another courier job for her uncle. It looks like a relatively easy job – deliver an amulet to a hermit in Budapest. She decides to combine the job with a conference and is actively seeking a ...more
I couldn't believe her behaviour. She made an oath, a commitment to not just Drake but to his green dragons. She acts like a selfish brat worrying about a career she hasn't even started yet, when her mate is about to lose everything with the possibility of even going to war.
And then she ru ...more
One of the things that gets to me about PNR is how the heroines will be all angry at their men but after a single kiss, or even a single look from them, they melt and immediately ignore their anger, falling into bed with them... DRAKE IS AN ASS!! He shows absolutely no feeling towards Aisling aside from considering her his possession and she forgets all her anger with just a look... It's unrealistic an ...more
In Fire Me Up, Aisling and Jim go to Budapest for 2 reasons. Of course the first is she has another object to deliver as part of her job, and second... there's a magical conference she wants to attend in the hopes of finding a Guardian mentor.
Yes, she has come to the terms with the fact that she's part of and involved in the supernatural world and... just better be prepared than totally clueless.
And in true Ms. Grey fashion she finds ...more
Fire Me Up was a disappointment. It began on a high note but then fell flat. All I've got to say is that Aisling and Drake are perfect for each other, simply because I don't think anyone else could handle them and their selfishness.
Aisling Grey is one immature heroine. It's constantly a surprise whenever I'm reminded she's in her early thirties, because it literally seems like her soul is thirteen. Aisling is a version of Charley Davidson, but thankfully ...more
The cover is probably the only thing I didn't like about the book. Considering how amazing MacAlister's style is, I've never been a huge fan of the cover designs. But I def ...more
After discovering in the first book that she is the supernatual world's doorman to the portals of hell aka a Guardian, Aisling decides to do the only thing you can in such situations. Goes to a convention. Full of mages, diviners, oracles and more Guardians Aisling hopes to find a mentor to help her with her new powers. However, she didn't expect to see Drake the wyvern of the green dragons and also her mate there, and she certainly didn't think s ...more
I really am not liking this series and don't think I will continue. This story is very similar to the first story. How is one person falsely accused of multiple murders in two completely different countries? It is just a little too fake for me. I also didn't like the secondary characters in this story. I couldn't stand Tiffany, the professional virgin, or Marma Belle (or however you spell her name. Since I was listening, I never saw how it was spelled).
The relatio ...more
That professional virgin (sorry, forgot the name) was annoying as hell, what with her 'sharing her smile'. Gosh, I'd have strangled her after five minutes. As for the plot itsel ...more
In terms of the end... NO! NO! NO! My heart plummetted at the end, deflated. I wanted to stomp my foot. I wanted Jim to go bite or drool on someone on behalf of Aisling, I wanted to curl up and cry a little. Although, props to Katie MacAlister on making me seriously consider spending an audible credit for the next book.
The mystery: kept me guessing on this one. My theories would chan ...more
"Hello, I am Tiffany. You're a Guardian, aren't you? Here is my card. I am a professional virgin. You will please let me know if you have any need of my services."
Tiffany: "Oooh, fruit cups! I love the fruit cups. Fruit is the flower of our souls, don't you think?"
"I am Tiffany. I am a professional virgin. If you were to choose between kissing Aisling's belly and mine, you would choose mine, would you not? My belly is very smooth and white."
The plots ...more
This is a great series for Evanovich fans, what the between-the-numbers books should have been. ...more

Aisling Grey is back-and in more trouble than ever. She thought being a courier would be easy. It's not. She thought being a Guardian would come naturally. It doesn't. She thought she could get out of being a wyvern's mate. She can't. And she never thought she'd be irresistible to men. But she is.From Booklist

He dissolved in a flurry of white smoke even before I could finish the sentence.
Ha! Victorious again!"
Yeah," Jim drawled while I remade the bed and fluffed up my pillows. "Aisling, two; sexy, naked men
who just want to give her the pleasure of a lifetime with no commitment, zero.”
