There are worse things than death. Things that lurk in the shadows and slip into your dreams. Things that have no business existing. Things that once slept … but have now awoken.

For Callypso Lillis, the fae magic that now runs through her veins is equal parts curse and good fortune. For the very thing that bonds her to Desmond Flynn, the King of the Night, also makes her

“I have your undivided attention, don’t I?”
“And all my love.”

I debated writing a review because of how controversial this trilogy appears to some people, just with book 1 itself. So I'd like to get three of the most problematic things I've seen be mentioned about this trilogy and move on from there.

The grooming. Personally, I didn't see it that way in book 1, and I didn't take it to be that way. Callie is 15 years old when she meets Desmond, also known as Des or The Bargainer, a

When people in other kingdoms are all simultaneously being mass murdered by some previously catatonic warriors who all woke up at the same time and attacked like freaky zombies, and you are the only person who can stop them easily with your innate special powers - would you choose that moment as a grand time to go on a sex-fest vacation with your mate or would you, I don't know, go to those other kingdoms and try to help?

Full review featured on my blog Recipe & a Read

I'm rounding down with this one with the caveat that I really wanted to round up but couldn't because while this series as a whole is fantastic, the third installment of the series left me wanting more from the plot and less of the romance.

Dark Harmony is the final installment of Callie and Des's long, sordid story and while it did leave me wanting a bit more it was an absolute knock out. I've said it before and I'm sure

What fabulous ending to this epic series!!!! I Have so enjoyed this series!!! The characters are so intriguing and the night kingdom and and it's people beautiful and magical.

Damn, do I love this series. I love it so much that I don’t even care about the massive book hangover it gives me every. single. time.

I know I’ve found something really special in a book when three things happen:

1. I think about it any time I’m NOT reading it. At work, at the store, at the doctor, in the shower, etc.

2. I only tell my BFFs to read it. They’re the only ones I trust to love and appreciate it as much as I do.

3. I feel jealous of people who are reading it for the first time because t

That's been my review for well over a year on Goodreads, waiting for Dark Harmony to release. Yeah, my review isn't really gonna change. I'm pretty much at a loss for words, this book was everything. Just everything I could've asked for.

I enjoyed this book more than book two but I don't think it was better than book one. Overall, I was only into this series because, let's be real, it's basically just a fun, easy read that's pretty much identical to ACOTAR and the writing is easy and the characters and world are digestible, so it's a mindless read that's fun and cringy without ever being painful to read.

I liked that Callie and Des worked together a lot more in this book, but I was never really blown away by their dynamic other

"I have a secret."

Let me preface this by saying that The Bargainer series is one of my all-time favorite series (we're talking like top three guys, these books are a big deal to me) so I had a lot of expectations going into this. Let me respond to that by saying that it did not disappoint. Seriously, I cannot get over how perfectly Laura has wrapped up Callie and Des' sto

For all of it's problems, Rhapsodic was fun. I had liked it.

But the thing is with each passing book in the series the writing got tiring. The over the top declarations of love lacklustre. The mystery a bore. The sex repetitive. I feel like this entire story got stretched so much that in the end it got lost. This could have easily have been a duology. There just wasn't a need for 4 books of nothing new.

And I maintain all of my points from my previous review. Desmond is the worst king and Callie t

Am I the only one or does anyone else want a book (or a series or two) based on Janus Soleil? Just me? Oh what the hell then, I ain't changing my mind at ALL. He deserves one.

To be honest, I thought I had a lot to say about this book, but now I realize that if I say it, I'll eventually end up spoiling everything 🙈 and we don't want that, now do we? (But I may end up writing it without the spoiler effect...... someday in the future).

i hate this series with my entire heart and all my humanity. the ministry of health should warn everyone that this book is causing endless pain.

are you looking for a book series after which you will need a brainwash or eye surgery? i found it for you.

trigger warnings: headaches, the possibility of insanity or hysteria, harm to your mental health and questioning human existence

finally is this suffering over. such a waste of paper, a waste of my valuable time and a waste of my storage on the phone
Holy Shamoly!!! That was bloody HOT!!!

I really enjoyed The Bargainer series and I'm sad to see it come to an end. The characters were original, the storyline kept me entertained from beginning to end and the sexual shenanigans were HOT!!

This is the second audio I've listened to where a second narrator makes a one chapter appearance. WHAT THE HECK IS THAT ABOUT??? What's the point? The fact that it's Susannah Jones narrating for the majority of the story, why would you even bother? Ms Jones is on

So I finished.... Oh my god.

I'm so unspeakably, unbearably, impossibly happy.

[Disclaimer: I was graciously given an ARC for an honest review, and here it is - as honest as it can be, plucked straight from my heart.]
How do I even begin to describe this book? How does one describe perfection, anyway - can that feeling of reading something so special, so amazing, so touching and good even be put into words? But I'll try - for Laura Thalassa, who gave us this breathtaking story, and for The Bargaine

This is it! Finally! The grand evil scheme has been revealed.

The soldiers in the coffins are awake... and they are mass murdering everyone in their path, they seek destruction and they bring chaos. Why am I not surprised?

We all saw it coming. Strange man puts thousands of soldiers into a magical coma and no one thought that they might someday wake up and obey him? No one

Good but not great

It was good, but I'm kinda disappointed to be honest. The first two books were so revolutionary and fantastic that I expected the same of this one. There were too many sex scenes with too little movement in the actual story. The storyline seemed to drag on and on while I was just waiting for more action. There were many parts were the whole book seemed to pause and wait for the two many characters to play lovefest. Everyone was freaking dying and then they went on vacation to h

I think this was my fav book of the series. Callie and Des found their rhythm as a couple and the Thief of Souls was a great villain. I'm glad I stuck around for him.

I hated every second if it. I enjoyed the first two but I could barely finish this one. I found myself constantly rolling my eyes and skipping pages as they had zero to do with the outcome of the story. We get it, they like sex. The book constantly veered from the story arc to depict fairy porn. I'm all for a good sex scene but there were way too many and didn't add anything to the story. How many times do we have to read six pages about them having sex? Every other chapter apparently (yes, it's ...more

How do you enchant, mesmerize, fascinate and completely engross a reader with a love story in the middle of war, horror, injustice and darkness? Tell it like Laura Thalassa.
In this last instalment, battling the horror and nightmare, who was the thief of souls did not stop the sizzling, tantalizing and steamy love scenes.
The battle was fierce and claimed a lot of lives but In the end, loyalty, friendship, and love won; and evil 👿 was banished.
Most importantly, Callie and Des lived happily ever a

What a ride.  The Bargainer series is one of my new favorite PNR series to date.  I devoured all three books in the series in four days, I was so invested.  

Dark Harmony is, like its title indicates, a bit on the darker side of things.  Desmond Flynn a.k.a. the Bargainer is King of the Night Court in Faery. He is not particularly kind; he is mischievous, deceitful and a tad bit wicked and completely makes the series.  Callie is his mate, par

Laura Thalassa is a rock star. Dark Harmony exceeded all of expectations. My mouth may have hit the floor a couple times and I may have whooped out loud. (Just a side note the drool on my floor was from my great dane, not me. ;)) The storyline started off great and kept the momentum throughout the book. I devoured it. Callie is a rock star and she truly shines throughout the book. Also, let's not forget our King of Night... he's a complete badass! I'm going to keep this review simple. All you ne ...more

You’re not normal; you’ll never be normal. I’m so sorry to tell you that. You are so blindingly extraordinary that it physically hurts me sometimes, and I’ll never stop pushing you to believe this.”

It was only sheer will that made me finish it, though it was enjoyable to read? I don’t even know what I’m saying😂 basically I love the romance and characters and fantasy I just feel like the series decreased in addictive-ness as it progressed😂. Anyway such fun!
