Bestie had read this quite a while ago and she wouldn't stop badgering me till I read it too! I am so glad she did! *though it was tough on her when I told her in which pages I was, she just wanted to spoil RAWR!*
This was slightly different book then what I usually read! Which, warlock, werewolf and vamps! Naked men, getting to see naked EIGHT packs and then again being naked after transforming!! What more does one ask for in a good book? ;)
Jolie Wilkins is a card reader living in LA with her bestie when she is hired to do something that changes her entire life.
Rand is a sexy warlock with eight packs who also happens to become Jolie's employer! He is a bit withdrawing about his feelings towards Jolie at the beginning but then again there are so many obstacles!
On the other hand there is Sinjin, a vamp packs unknown, he didn't take off his shirt GRRR who let his intention known quite bluntly.
There is a scary supernatural word and many of these scary creatures want Jolie and her powers, no matter what. She is tought to improve her powers and also defend herself... which sometimes didn't came so helpful =/
All supernatural powers are uniting and it's not for the cost of greater good. Jolie, Rand and Sinjin are the few who are resisting these unity and trying to protect the ones who wants to stay neutral. While Demons, some werewolf which and vamps are in her side Jolie has a few followers of herself but sadly they need more power to stand a chance against them. That's when the fairy step in but convincing them aren't a easy job!
Overall a good and fun read!Recommended to readers who loves reading about sexy warlocks and vampires!(less)

H.P. Mallory is becoming one of my favorite author through her writing. After finishing her both books of Jolie Wilkins series, I am still eager to get the third one in my hand however I am a greedy person so I grabbed the next best thing, To Kill a Warlock. This series is a lot like the Jolie Wilkins series's paranormal world. Dulcie O'Neil is a fairy regulator who is working undercover with a Loki to find the criminals who brought back a creature from the other world.
Dulcie (I am not sure how it's pronounced though) is a fairy and part-time novel writer. Hot hunky men finds her very attractive and she finds a way to only have them as the fantasy hero of her books or sometimes her dreams.
The book doesn't have any cliff-hangers at the end, which it A+ for me. Dulcie returns in the second book A Tale of Two Goblins. And yes I am getting started on that as soon as I finish this review :')(less)
I am seriously in need of the third book on this series right now. I can not wait till December this year for this book! Nooooooooooo!

Okay *deep calming breaths*
Wawzaa! That was one heck of a book!
After much persuasion when the fae king has agreed to help Jolie in her task, the book picks up from there.
Jolie is more powerful after blood swaping from Sinjin, though she doesn't bring back any dead people in this book.
Rand is still resentful to bond but why is that we find out later.
Jolie's relationship with Rand was just about to happen than BAM no bonding clause. *head desk*
Jolie, heartbroken as she is she still wants to fight even though Rand is very much against it. So Jolie takes up help from the only one who is willing, Sinjin. Which involved her drinking his blood. It scars me because I am pretty sure after swapping blood this many times it should represent something significant but who knows! I guess we have to wait till the third book! Or maybe their world doesn't quite work like that ;)
But the fact that Jolie has feelings for both Rand and Sinjin is clear. The war is in it's full swing and then another one. BAM. Back to the future people!
I loved reading this book, specially the snarky comments. Toli and Troubles is a short read. Quite funny and romantic of course heap amount of fluffs and steamy smexing! (less)

that is me after finishing this book. I would love to start from the begining to tell everyone how the book went, but my mind is too boggled with the ending to say something else.
Let's try this again, after finishing Bloodfever Faefever takes up from there, Mac on the ground writhing from the pain.
Mac is learning more and more about fae world, but sadly it's V'lane who is giving her all the information. I still don't trust him, can you blame me?!?
Barrons, really did you have to throw that pink cake up the ceiling? It was a perfectly good cake you know, it sounded really delicious. *sigh*
Mac tries her best to get her mind in control, even if that does mean giving Barrons every answer he wanted. I am just surprised he didn't ask her if she wanted to have sex with him. I repeat what I said in my review for Bloodfever, if this was a BDSM book, Barrons would be the perfect example for a DOM.
In this book I felt like, Mac and Barrons seems to be on a friendlier acquaintance. Which I loved!
The ending had me baffled, there is no way to sugarcoat this. Mac was raped. That is it. No matter how it happened, how she felt. It was rape.
See after this book, I should say I give up, but I cannot. Now more than ever I want to know what happens next. I am not wondering if there is a HEA anymore. I just want to know what happens. (less)

I am not so keen on the idea of fairy and all. But in case of H.P. Mallory's fairies I make an exception and I am glad that I did. Dulcie O'Niel is definitely one badass fairy. I am surprised at just how much I loved reading this book.
In the second series of Dulcie O'Niel, Dulcie has to find the person who is putting everyone she cares about to sleep. She is next and the key to not to let her mind wonder off is to not sleep.
Dulcie does some stuff she wouldn't in her right mind will do. Brings out more reckless side of her, and lets face it when there are lives are at stake, you will do almost anything to save them. Dulcie also realizes her feeling towards are Knight is extremely strong which ended the book in a bright mood.
Overall a really good book. If you are a fan of urban fantasy and Henry Cavill, this is a MUST read.

I liked the entire world created in this book.
Ivy a witch in her try to capture the attention of the boy she likes is driven to turn a toad lizard in to a real boy which comes back to bite her in the ass, not literally of course. When her magic is hard to un do, Ivy is accused to becoming more like her father. Ivy and her friends are on to the mission to solve the mystery of who has The Book Of Lost Souls, a book that resurrects the dead. The story kept throwing off too many suspects and I kept guessing who actually had the book.
Nick Marcelli a demon and quite hard to resist when his charms is thrown in the mix in Ivy's life. Making Ivy confuse to which boy to actually choose.
Overall a good book, I liked it and was hooked on it till the end although there were some very cheesy lines and I really really didn't expect a teenage boy to be that much.. ah well cheesy. But very cute nonetheless.(less)

When I saw Missie was hosting a Some Girls Bite read-along with Tina, Rummanah and Jenny I though I have the book, I haven't had a chance to do a read-along before so lets do this!
It was awesome. Reading four chapters a week and making turtle friends along the way, but I think most of the bloggers had already finished it. I am going off track with my thoughts about the read-along here.
So about the book, I liked the entire situation with Merit's vampiredom and how she grows to accept her situation. Under a month time Merit went from grad student to super sentinel, I don't think I would have come out of my hidie hole before a month past.
Ethan, Merit's master and the head of Cadogan house is a bit of a jerk in the entire book. And I am told to be patient, apparently he isn't always so much of a jerk as the series continues. I would like him a little less jerky too. Mallory, Merit's best friend got it on with a fellow sorcerer. I am sort of those readers that love slow built up love. Mallory and Catcher was more like lust-in-first-sight than love. They are both GREAT characters individually and had a lot of potential to bloom in to a great relation that I would have liked but I just didn't feel the love there. Now let me finish my character evaluation with one last character, Jeff. He is the ONLY were we meet in this book, he is twenty one and a lanky computer geek. I am thinking about grabbing him and then running towards the mountains. I even have a pair of handcuffs somewhere in the house to have him cuffed to the headboards. Too much! I think not.
At the end, I honestly don't think I would have liked this book if I was reading this on my own. Because of the read-along mainly, I loved reading this. I plan to continue the series soon.
Recommended to ... umhh ... readers like me who had second thoughts about picking up the book. Just wait for a read-along or something when you start! Review originally posted on The Nerd In Heels(less)

And trust me when I say this, THERE CAN NEVER BE ENOUGH OF THOSE TWO! Okay I am calm. It's that just I loved the duo on the first book and not catching enough of them in the sequels was really sad but fortunately there is a short story where Ari and Janco deals with an hot headed soldier. Short, but sweet nicely done.
If you liked Ari and Janco you gotta read Power Study(less)
