It's so wonderful. It keeps me engaged and devouring the book. I mean, have you read her Pendragon Gargoyles series?? I blew through them very quickly, they are that good!
Okay. Now that I've gone on a little rant, let's carry on to the review. :)
I can say I have never read a book with the trope of the hero being a vigilante or super hero with a super power like in comic books. For this alone, I knew the book was going to be good. Finley was great to read, but she was out-shown by Trace. I mean, who can beat out a FREAKING SUPER HOT VIGILANTE?? Some scenes were lighting up my kindle with the sparks flying between the characters. I enjoyed the depth we were able to see in the two. It added a wonderful nugget to the story.
My only complaint is that I wish it was slightly longer. Of course, I can also see if I beg her enough she'll cave and write another book, turning this into a series! *wink, wink* *nudge, nudge*...more
Can I say how much I look forward to a new book by Lauren Smith? Yes? Cool. I have a soft spot for this series. It’s the one that got me into readingCan I say how much I look forward to a new book by Lauren Smith? Yes? Cool. I have a soft spot for this series. It’s the one that got me into reading historical. I was very excited to read Ashton’s book.
I want to get this out of the way. I love Ashton in the previous books. He seemed like he had his head on straight. The beginning of this book, though? Good lord did I want to throttle him because of what he did to Rosalind! BUT, he did come back and redeem himself in my eyes very quickly, which is good because I’d hate to not like him! I loved reading his journey into discovering that, yes, he can have a happily ever after just like his friends. And with a woman who lights his blood on fire.
Roalind’s strong character had me feeling a girl crush something fierce for her. Despite her past with her father, she became a woman who knows her worth and won’t be forced into anyone else’s idea of what she should be. I always enjoy a strong female lead, and Rosalind hits the mark here.
I enjoyed all aspects of this story (except your asshattery at the beginning, Ashton. *points an accusing finger in his face…*). I am always amazed at the world Ms. Smith has created and can only wish that there were people like this back in the day.
I look forward to more books to come in this series. I’ve got my eye on Jonathan. He has my interest piqued with his storyline. I loved seeing more of him and Charles in this one....more
What time is it? Time for another Erin Nicholas review! :)

This book is a short, but good one. Now, the premise of this whole series is one woman, Ellie, was told by a fortune teller that she will find her true love whose name is Chris Evans...and there are six of them!
In comes our first Chris Evans. Ellie quickly figures out he's not the one for her. So the story takes over with him and Brittney. Can I say how much I loved Britt? She was such a free spirit and I loved how she loosened Chris up. He seemed a little high strung.
The chemistry was popping from these two. After Britt hurt herself, I liked how Chris immediately stepped up and offered to help. He may be the strong silent type, at least to her when he wasn't lecturing her, but he has this incredibly sweet side. And Britt? I could see her being one of my good friends. Erin has this way with writing female characters that you will instantaneously love!
I cannot wait to read the rest in this series. If it's anything like this one and the prequel, they will be fantastic!...more
When I first saw the tour for this book, I did a double take with a side of, whaaaaaaaaaaat. Avon has a M/M AND it's historical?! Hells yes. I am so hWhen I first saw the tour for this book, I did a double take with a side of, whaaaaaaaaaaat. Avon has a M/M AND it's historical?! Hells yes. I am so happy I was able to review this book. It was all sorts of great.
I enjoyed the story and the characters were wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed Jack (the scoundrel) with his alpha male, I know what I'm doing and I make no apologies about it, attitude. I think he was the perfect person to bring Oliver out of his shell a little.
Speaking of Oliver (our soldier)...can I just say how freaking adorable this man is? For a soldier, and a man that is not small in stature, he's all sorts of cute with his blushing and innocent way he sees things. I'm sure there will be people who gripe that he's a softie and men aren't that blinded about things going on then, but there will always be that one person who assumes the best in people and that they follow the rules. I honestly enjoyed his character the most out of the book.
Secondary characters and a wonderfully written story adds to this great tale of forbidden love. I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Sebastian has in store for for us in the future!...more

The beginning had a lot going for it. I was immediately sucked into the story. Although it was an all around enjoyable read, there were some things in it that made it seem like the author should have been writing a different age group for the hero and heroine. As an example, I don't know many 30 year olds who actually wear robes, including this 30 year old.
Even with a few blips in the story, I enjoyed it enough for it to keep my attention and wanting to know how the story ended. And Alex started off as a strong Alpha, but he calmed into a sweetheart with insecurities that had me feeling for him. I was, also, quite intrigued by Chase and Liane. I am looking forward to reading their book in the future....more
I am a huge fan of Rebecca Zanetti's books. I originally fell in love with her Sin Brothers series and never looked back!
So here we have Deadly SilencI am a huge fan of Rebecca Zanetti's books. I originally fell in love with her Sin Brothers series and never looked back!
So here we have Deadly Silence, book one of the new spin-off of one of my favorite series. Straight out of the gate...sexy. Ryker is all kinds of alpha male that I wouldn't mind getting to know a little better. He has all the perfect markers of a wonderful alpha, but he also harbors a heart of gold. He has a deep love for his brothers and finds himself widening that small group a little, then a lot at a time. I won't spoil it for those that haven't read the book yet, but the ending had me freaking out in a good way. It was the PERFECT way to finish the book. But back to Ryker. I enjoyed his internal fight with himself at the beginning that he can't get any closer to Zara than he already is. But that is quickly blow out of the water when Zara finds herself in trouble and he can't deny what he has been feeling.
At first I wasn't sure how I felt about Zara, I really don't. But she grew into a stronger character than I thought she was. I mean, there were a few times where she was beyond badass. Can we say helicopter, anyone??? She was a great other half to Ryker, helping him stay grounded.
The story was a wonderful start to what will surely be a phenomenal series!...more
SUPER stoked that I was able to review A Scot in the Dark. Sarah MacLean is one of my favorite historical authors (She is an automatic buy for me.)SUPER stoked that I was able to review A Scot in the Dark. Sarah MacLean is one of my favorite historical authors (She is an automatic buy for me.) and I have been chomping at the bit to read this one-it was better than I imagined!
I immediately went in quite intrigued by Alec, the Duke of Warnick, from the first book in this series, The Rogue Not Taken. He was mysterious and seemed to not care about whatever it was London thought of him. I love a man that is quiet and confident. Fast forward to this book. I loved the depth of emotion and backstory for Alec. If I wasn't already half in love with him, I would have been pushed over the edge shortly after starting this story. He ranks up there as one of my favorites of her heroes.
Lillian was such a wonderful character. Ms. MacLean has a knack for creating strong, leading females. I felt for the predicament that Lilly found herself in. It's crazy the nonsense women had to go through and the double standards they had to face. She found the strength to face it all. I loved her spunk and tenacity. She was wonderful!
I can't say enough about how all sorts of awesome this book was. Ms. MacLean knows how to pen a fantastic novel!...more
