I love rekindled love it's one of my favorite themes. I kind of wish Del had given him a bit more hell but the flipping off his life sized poster was pretty amusing. Brendan was a total sweetheart tho and admitted to his F up and said it was the biggest mistake he ever made. I can respect that and he made it hard for her to stay mad long. I would have also liked a bit more of their past. I know how they met but that was about it. Overall, it was super cute and a very quick read.

(view spoilerThis isn't really a book or even a novella, but a free scene of Elvira's engagement! It is super cute and a perfect proposal for Elvira. (view spoiler)[ I'd probably smack my man over the head with a shoe if he ever tried to propose that way to me but for them it works. And I loved how the girls were browbeating Elvira into trying it on.. What I didn't get was why all the menfolk showed up but it was nice to see them there. (hide spoiler)] If you're a fan of the series and read Walk thru Fire definitely check this out. Why not.. it's free and super short. You can probably read it in 5 mins and it does the heart good. :) ...more

I'vSo I am not a huge historical fan but when I saw Kerrigan Byrne had some full length novels out I had to give them a whirl and I am so glad I did. I've read most of K Byrnes historical paranormal novellas and enjoyed them all and while I miss the paranormal aspect (because she does it so well) in these books I still really enjoyed them.
I actually finished this a few days ago, it was good. I liked the 1st book a bit better but i did still really enjoy this installment. I found both characters quite enjoyable and even liked that their 1st time together was not instant explosions and multiple orgasms. cant wait to see where this series takes us. Full review to come. ...more
This one is ok, not bad but not great. I've loved every book in this series esp Brian and Ghost's stories. They had such magic. This one was just ok.This one is ok, not bad but not great. I've loved every book in this series esp Brian and Ghost's stories. They had such magic. This one was just ok. Starla annoyed me for a good portion of the book. She made stupid decisions basically out of spite and I really just couldnt figure out where all her hangups came from. She didnt seem to have a horrible childhood, her parents were religious and a bit judgey but that didnt seem enough to justify Starla's self loathing and bad attitude. Jared was ok, I liked that he wasnt judgey and is a great dad to his daughters.
I liked that Jared and Starla were open and honest about their feeling for other people but it was so hammered on that I had a hard time pin-pointing where exactly did these two fall out of love with the objects of their desire and into love with each other?? One minute they were pinning for someone else and the next they are in love with each other? It's a hard sell and one I didnt fully buy.

This was a mixed bag for me... It is a dark erotic novel which I knew going in so that wasn't really an issue for me. The issues I had were Ivan was pretty underdeveloped as a character by the end of the book we knew very little about him. His back story constituted about a page out of the entire book. I wanted to know more about his childhood, how he took himself from the streets to being one of the most powerful men in the city. These are the things the reader is interested in, this is what makes us bond with the character. I can't say I bonded much with Ivan.
But that wasn't even my biggest issue with the book.. My biggest issue was the sexy times. Ivan has a Daddy complex, he wants to be called Daddy and he wants to treat Candace like a daughter which just creeps me the hell out. I had a father whom I called daddy pretty much all of my childhood so to even think about Daddy in any sort of intimate situation makes me want to gag a little or a lot. I get Ivan’s desire to take care of Candace, the reward and punishment and even the innocence (This isn't my first rodeo after all) but just the incorporation of Daddy into the mix... I just mentally go there.
So other than skipping over a lot of the sexy times, I actually liked the story. Candace's had a difficult past and now under Ivan's protection she is doing better but her past won’t stay in the past. Now she is being threatened and there is no way Ivan is going to let that continue. So we are taken down Candy's journey how she got to where she is today, how she has changed, how she hasn't, how she discovers she needs to change. It’s a good emotional journey that I enjoyed being taken down. ...more

This was a quick glimpse into an already mated couples life after mating showing that not everything is rainbows and kittens. The Kate was kind of a shrew in the beginning but she eventually calmed her ass down. Stephan was cool from beginning to end, he knew what he brought to the table and he just needed his mate to get her head out of her a$$ and know what she brought to the table and appreciate all that he's done for her. It was a really quick read with some good moments. I liked it.

This book takes pace one month after EIGHTH GRAVE AFTER DARK, Charley has literally exploded into the air and reReviewed for:Where the Night Kind Roam
This book takes pace one month after EIGHTH GRAVE AFTER DARK, Charley has literally exploded into the air and reformed in Sleepy Hallow New York outside of a diner. When Charley awakens she has no memory of who she is and realizes quite quickly that she sees things that others can’t. Charley takes on the name Janey Doerr for lack of another one. Of course the gang is not going to let Charley go it alone and they pretty much infiltrate the diner Charley starts working at. They don’t tell Charley who she is and they hope that she will come to it on her own but time is running out.
For me, I just didn’t enjoy this version of Charley as much as I enjoy the Charley that remembers who she is. Everything just seemed to be less. She wasn’t quite as snarky; although, most does remain intact. She is more timid and doesn’t embrace the departed like we are used to. That doesn’t mean that Charley doesn’t manage to find plently of trouble on her own anyway, because I don’t think losing her memory could ever change that. And throughout the book, it just seemed like not telling her was more of a hindrance then telling her. Charley was confused , lonely and didn’t understand what was going on around her. I think if they had at least told her she could have come to terms quicker or would at least be less confused and timid. Just my humble opinion. Don’t get me wrong, the book was still very entertaining and I enjoyed it very much, I was just expecting more.

Here we are eight months later; Reyes, Charlie and Osh have taken up residence of a convent. They are on the run from 12 hellhounds sent from Hell; rumor has it they can’t step onto consecrated ground. We open with Cookies wedding to Bob, aw! And the whole gang is there. Agent Carter, comes to Charlie with a missing kids case and she decides to take on the case despite being convent bound she’s going to need help from her whole gang for this one including Amber and Quinten. With little Beep on the way the danger is escalating. Reyes isn’t sleeping and is making reckless decisions. The departed are converging on the lawn in masses.
This installment follows in true Charley Davidson fashion we get to enjoy everything that has made up this series so far. Charley’s trademark sense of humor has not dimmed in the slightest due to her impending motherhood or her time in a holy place. In typical fashion she has multiple cases going on at one time but with everything else it may be too much for her. She has a missing person’s case, a dead tax accountant, a dead nun, her father’s murder and the arrival of Reye’s birth parents. See, a lot going on. Add to that the fact the Lucifer wants her and Beep dead and the hellhounds, all while nine months preggers she might have bitten off more than she can chew. The book is action packed with lots of humor and no time to get bored. Yet another great book in this widely entertaining series. ...more
