Finally a well written Biker MC series I can add to my Biker reads I want more of. And it is a very small list so far only 3. Pretty sad list considering that the biker trend has hit big and there are many out there I have tried to read and have lately been DNF.
Craving Constellations is a raw, intense, emotional, real read. I felt Brenna and Dragon's pain and happiness. There are two scenes that are disturbing but flowed nicely through the novel. Dragon's reaction when Brenna came home revealing her secret was a little shocker to me. There was a huge twist I did not see coming with another secret and the biggest betrayal ever. Now that scene was a huge shocker for me I was afraid to read on but I had to know how that scene played out and wow did I shed a few tears. My heart broke for both of them and had no idea how they would ever recover from that huge betrayal from Brenna and Dragon's reaction. Honestly if this novel was not well written I would of stopped at that disturbing scene but so happy I continued on. I do not approve of his actions for these scenes but I can relate to his anger and understand where he was coming from as my family has been close to his situation.
I do have a love/hate relationship with Dragon the sexy-tattoo-biker babe-possessive hero with an alpha male attitude. He is steamy-cold shower needed in the bedroom with his yummy dirty-talking mouth.
Nicole Biker's have their own world and I liked the direction she went when Brenna came home and their actions. They seem cruel considering what she just went through but this is their reality and they do not sugar coat anything but they will have her back and protect her. I do wish readers got to see more of their world especially when going on runs.
I felt as a biker read Brenna and Dragon's story concentrated more on their relationship than her biker world. I did at times enjoy the sometimes Dual POV. Loved getting inside Dragon's head when it continue on with a scene but I did not like reading the same thing sometimes in both dual POV. I wanted them to have more of a past together than just one drunken night instead of falling for each other the first night. The scene with her dad and her ex-husband I really wish that was shown and not just left for the readers to imagine what happened. For these reasons I would of rated it 3 stars-Liked It. But Nicole Jacquelyn has a great writing voice and Craving Constellations is well written that brought out so many different emotions in me I had to bump it up 4 stars-Loved It. The cover is nice but I do not think it fits for a Biker Novel. Readers get a little set up for Grease's story next in Craving Redemption (The Aces #2). After reading a expert/teaser I am interested to see how his story plays out.

Back when I started Psy-Changeling series I was and still am a huge Christine Feehan fan and it was her quote on the cover ("I love this book! It's a must read for all my fans.") that got me interested in wanting to read this series. Instantly fell in love with Psy-Changeling series and Nalini Singh writing style.
Slave To Sensation is one of those novels I would love to go back and read for the first time and experience the unique world between Changeling's and Psy that Nalini Singh has brilliantly created. Loved that she brought a mixture of sci fi and paranormal together. For me I have never and still have not read anything like this.
Loved the layers that were peeled away little by little in Sascha's character. She starts off emotionless and a bit spineless. But that is how she was raised. Enjoyed how she gradually showed her emotions and for sure got a backbone especially when it came to Lucas. Sascha is a sweetheart once it came to Lucas pack.
Now Lucas is what I love in my cat shifter heroes. He is protective of the ones he loves but is also a sweetheart. Working side by side with Sascha his cat and him become infatuated with her. He becomes possessive and protective of her. He has an alpha male attitude but knows when to take down a notch when it comes to her. I loved that there is no insta love, readers are right along with these characters getting to know each other and rooting for them to become a couple and once they do they are hot fan your-self together.
Nalini Singh does an outstanding job at bringing many characters together with out taking away from the main characters. I love in my novels secondary characters and when done right add so much to the story line. All secondary characters play into her story line and she never bombards readers with too much info on them. She gives readers just enough info to where readers want to know more about them. All the different characters with the mixed breeds, wolf and cat shifters and even the psy bring Slave To Sensation to life. Everyone has their own voice and personality. Even though this novel is Paranormal Romance her characters and world feel real. I love how they are all known to the world and live everyday life like real families. For me I love mix breeds and the journey with Cat and Wolf Shifters working together to find the killer was at times a hoot.
Nalini Singh is the queen of Alpha Male heroes. I loved that there are many alpha males in her story and they never feel out of place. I have fallen a tad behind in Psy-Changeling series and excited I am able to partake in 2014 Psy-Changeling read a long hosted by Herding Cats & Burning Soup and Aly Miscellany. Look for forward to next up for Feb. Vaughn story in Visions of Heat (Psy-Changeling #2).
