Starting this book, I expected it to start off strong like Shifter Showmance, unfortunately it wasn't AS strong, but still it was good.
I kept reading because I LOVE Saint and the premise of this book sounded fantastic. Saint finds his desire within the game he created. However ...
(I hate to do this) SPOILER ALERT
The whole sex/menage inside the cyber/virtual demon game was a bit too much for me to swallow. First scene, believable, but after that I kept picturing SIMs characters with their pixelated bodies getting it on. No thanks.
Saint's story could have been so so much better and only toward the end - in the real world - did I finally get some redemption from book 2. The billboards and Radio stations, etc, those were classic Saint from book 1 and PERFECT.
In the end I was left wishing for more of the real world Saint and less of the cyber/virtual world. I'm afraid Demon Saint didn't live up to the standard of Showmance....more

However, I knew it could end up a part of the deal with this paranormal romance.
This book was written beautifully and took you on a 'paranormal reality internet show'. The premise was fantastic: Production Company assistant thrown into her guilty pleasure, the internet reality show sensation "Shifting Reality". Margo, our heroine, is thrown into the most real week of her life.
R.G.'s characters are believable and fun. And while werelion Thomas was a good time, Saint had me swooning. Ah my beautiful demon! Swoon.
My Shifter Showmance was a fun easy addictive read, which kept me smiling and swooning.
This book gets my utmost backing and support. I give it 1 vampire, 1 were lion, 1 half demon, and a whole caste of good time....more

This book was SO much fun to read. Not only did it take the 'Real Housewives' and put it right on Olympus, but Saranna once again captures my heart with a multitude of different characters. The way each god and goddess was portrayed in a new fresh voice, but also remained very in line with their mythological backgrounds was beyond my expectations.
For a wonderfully written, steamy, good time join The Real Housewives of Olympus.
It gets 4 lighting bolts and 3 Titans, with a dash of Hades (yum)....more
The Wanderer, book one in the Wasteland series, follows the story of a Wanderer Shaman after 2012's 'great burning'.
I wanted to complete the entire sThe Wanderer, book one in the Wasteland series, follows the story of a Wanderer Shaman after 2012's 'great burning'.
I wanted to complete the entire series before I posted my review of them. I have to say that The Wanderer started the series off very strongly with a very interesting premise of life after a solar flare scorches the earth.
I enjoyed the series and the different 'stations' of life presented all wrapped up with an erotic bow. Also, who can deny the amazingness of these covers! I've got severe Cover Envy right now. However, with the Wanderer starting the series off so strongly it was hard for the other books to keep up.
Book Two, The Whore, was good, but didn't have the advantage of being read first, so it's plot and information wasn't as interesting. Also, Bryn's character felt much younger than the 20 years she was supposed to be in the book.
Book Three, The Breeder, was a bit hard to swallow. This could be in part to my lack of enjoyment with 'love in 24hr' story lines, but it also came from the rushed feel of this book. There was also some conflicting parts of this story which grated on my nerves a bit. (I don't like to provide spoilers, so I can't go into too much detail - other than peoples feelings changed too quickly).
Book Four, The Preistess, had the advantage of wrapping the story up - neatly and tying things together. It also had the advantage of giving the true history of what occured after the radiation desolated the planet. This gave the plot a greater advance over the others; however, the Sanji (sp) character felt forced into story more than a true part of it.
Overall, this was a decent series and was worth reading.

Having helped, or tried to help, her twin all her life, Erica sets out into the dark vampire world of modern day to find and free her sister from it - also hoping to get out quick before drawing too much attention to herself. While Erica sets out on her mission, she quickly comes face to fang with the overbearing, dominant vampires.
Drawn by the scent of her, Maxwell Hart - Vampire Investigator, steps in just in time to assist Erica in her first vamp confrontation. From here, they partner to locate her twin sister. What neither of them planned on were the twists fate was brining to them both.
This book started off fantastically and both main characters were well written. It was a step right into the story and no waiting for back story elements to be filled in.
***Gentle hints/spoilers you may want to skip***
The supporting cast was done decently, but there were a few drawbacks with the 'opposing' vampires. I never really got a feel for what Carlisle's true motivations were or why Kyra was so quick to sell out someone - other than her troubled past. There was no hinting to Elena's true feelings in regards to Erica.
And before I end my 'spoiler' section, my other quirk with the story was the fast developing relationship between hero and heroine. I know it's fiction, but I'm not a fan of the 24 hour fall in love scenerio.
***Gentle spoilers over***
In any case, I would definitely read more from Jennifer Coolgan, and will possible download the next book in this collection. She writes really well, does amazing, hot sensual scenes, and provides a plot admist the tale. Not to mention her ability to write good dialogue.
So overall this story gets 3 stars for the story, and 1 more star because the twist in the plot made up for the small things that irked me.
This series got my attention awhile ago, but I left it on my 'to be read' list for a long time (on amazon). I finally got around to reading. I like toThis series got my attention awhile ago, but I left it on my 'to be read' list for a long time (on amazon). I finally got around to reading. I like to give it to you straight and keep in mind these are MY opinions. Take'em or Leave'em.
First of all, this is Erotica with a plot - which is good in my opinion. I wasn't in the market for a fluffy 'F me' read. This is what I was looking for, erotica with more substance to the story around it.
Now, having said that, let's just get the cons out of the way:
There were a couple of things that didn't add up for me. No spoilers from me, so it will have to be kept vague. First the heroine - in the beginning of the book makes a statement about her nightwear, but then goes on to contradict herself later. It was sort of a character plot point and it was very noticed by me. To the point that I went back to reread the beginning just to be sure I was right. I was.
Second, there was some terminology during the erotic scenes which felt repetitive and just began to lose the sexy times effect - for me. The author clearly could write and write a good erotic scene, but she sometimes made the hero seem very uninventive in his wording. And for a Kindred warrior whom worships their woman, I would think he would have the gift of extreme seduction.
Con's - which aren't that bad I might say - are out of the way. Let me get to the good!
Oh sweet alien invasion! Why do we not need Kindred warriors to protect us right now? Where the hell is my Kindred?! :o) The creativity that went into each type of Kindred race was outstanding. Oh and the new take on the ... um, how do I say it ... OH HELL ... vampire was really really really refreshing.
The plot of the story was fantastic and I'm captured by the series to continue on in an attempt to find out just exactly what the scourge are looking for!
Hunted here I come!!!
Over all ... this story gets a holding week, a tasting week, and 3 LONG bonding weeks from me! :o)
If you like erotica with some REAL meat to the story around it (especially a SciFy feeling) this book is for you.

It started with a lot of action and fast moving scenes. By mid book, I was still interested in what was going to happen with the Heroine and her Heroes.
However - without giving spoilers - at the end I just wanted the plot lines to stop. It felt like too much was packed into the end of the book. Let's just say one minute it's one thing, then as soon as you come to terms it's something else. It was hard to wrap my head around.
The heroine wasn't terrible, but by the end of the book I just didn't care what happened to her.
Three stars because it's written well and the plot takes certain paranormal ideas and puts a twist on them.
This book could've been great, but it fell short for me....more
