I don't really feel I can write a review as such because all I could focus on throughout this (thankfully short) story was how horrible the lead chickI don't really feel I can write a review as such because all I could focus on throughout this (thankfully short) story was how horrible the lead chick was. I was going to DNF but I don't like doing that and since it was one of those books that actually ended at 80% on my kindle I decided to stick it out.
Lexi (lead chick) basically goes in to see her tattoo/piercer crush pretending to want a VCH piercing purely because she wanted him to see and touch her lady bits - that just seems a bit weird and almost wrong. Then she (with the help of her equally annoying friend) decide to dance with someone else purely to make crush jealous and then she snogs him (not crush, the other guy).
When she finally gets it on with crush - it's not hot, not at all. She also gets all pissy when he basically tells her he doesn't think they should be an item - after she basically manipulated and guilted him into doing it in the first place, she has the cheek to be hurt when he seems to not want a full time relationship with her.
Oh and the ending? Don't even get me started on the cheesy ending with all her family fawning over her.
So sad this series is over! But at least Katee Robert has ended on a high.

We've met Warren before in His To Keep and we met Erin's brother in the same book but I can't remember if we've met Erin before now. I'll tell you something, I don't get why anyone would leave this little town because it seems to be full of hotties!
Warren and Erin have a history that can't be denied when they meet up again and Erin can't help but respond to Warren's game of Truth or Dare.
I've re-read this series a few times either because I want something quick and fun (and hot!) to read or I'm in a reading funk and I know for a fact these will get me out of it....more
Yay, Riley and the gang are all back! I was so excited to read that Oliver was releasing a 5th book, it really is one of my favourite series and I'veYay, Riley and the gang are all back! I was so excited to read that Oliver was releasing a 5th book, it really is one of my favourite series and I've recommended it to a few friends. The first in the series is Forsaken, 2nd is Forbidden, 3rd is Forgiven, 4th is Foretold, 4.5 is Grave Matters. Although Grave Matters is really only a wee novella, I included it in the list since the story is relevant to Riley's future and therefore this book.
This time we see Riley having to deal with a long distance relationship with Beck as well as training her own apprentice demon trappers and having to deal with prejudices from other trappers about her learning magic.
Riley's really matured since the start of this series, which I believe is less than a year in the timeline. She's been through a lot in her wee life and had to deal with some serious shit so it's easy to see why she's matured so much. This world just gets scarier as we learn more about hell and the demons it spawns - and I have a feeling we still have a lot more to learn. At least I'm hoping that's the case since I'm hoping Oliver writes more, the story definitely didn't seem finished. In fact, it did seem like more story threads have been opened in this.
I can't say anything bad about this series, I adore it. The world that's been created, the characters in it and the writing style are all fantastic and I'll continue to recommend this series to anyone that I think will enjoy it - which should be anyone that likes to read....more

This is the final title in the TRAIT series and it's definitely one of my favourites. Although ask me to list them 1-4 and I'd have difficulty - I'veThis is the final title in the TRAIT series and it's definitely one of my favourites. Although ask me to list them 1-4 and I'd have difficulty - I've honestly liked the entire series.
One thing I loved about this particular title is it doesn't use one of the most common romance tropes - one of the characters has a secret they're not telling the other and you just know the wronged party is going to find out and it'll cause tension between them that they'll have to work past. I hate that plotline and feel it gets way overused but thankfully not in this book.
Greta and Nico are determined to find the link between all the latest TRAIT cases and find out what's going on above TRAIT's head. The whole TRAIT agency works as a team to help and all the previous books get tied together. It's actually a nice ending to the series, there are no open endings and everything's finished up.
.....Except I still want my Marron story!
I've really enjoyed this series and am kind of sad to see it end even though deLaney has done a fantastic job at doing so. I recommend this series to anyone looking for some fun, short and sexy reads....more

In fact, I kinda feel sorry for Ariana being saddled with him - he totally puts down her beliefs and generally tells her she's wrong and he (and therefore the Order) is right.
So not being a fan of the lead male, I obviously didn't enjoy this one as I have some of the others in the series. I liked Ariana and the whole Tribe thing, I'm hoping we get to see more of them in the future - of course it's hard to tell who is right at this stage as so far it's kind of a he said/she said thing regarding the Order and the Tribe so I hope we get more back story with the whole Hunter/Huntress/Wolf thing.
I'm still looking forward to reading more of the series but I haven't enjoyed the last two books as much as others. Although as I stated in my review for Mayhem, it's kind of a hit and miss thing for me....more
