The Restorer by Amanda Stevens

I've had this book in my TBR pile for years. When I saw it on the Audible Romance Package I decided to give the audiobook a go. Sadly, it didn't work for me at all. The heroine was often TSTL. The plot didn't do a lot for me. The characters made deci ...more

I was in the mood for a fantasy novel and Briggs is always a favorite, so I decided to try the audiobook. I ended up DNF'ing it about halfway through. There's nothing wrong with the book and, in fact, I was really enjoying the story. But things start ...more

I really liked the first 1/4 or so of the book. It was cute and fun, and I really liked the heroine. Then things went downhill fast. She started making crazy decisions that had no basis in reality. She let her friends and her crush treat her like cra ...more

This was a sweet, relatively drama free romance. I really liked the way they were as parents, and how well they connected as a couple. I was bothered a bit by some quirks of the writing (such as the author's constant use of parenthesis to include asi ...more

When last we left Mercy and Adam, his ex-wife, Christy, had spent several weeks making Mercy’s life hell, they’d fought a volcano god and Mercy brought a Tibicena (a mythical dog that guarded the volcano god) into th

Re-Read Nov 2018: I've avoided re-reading this book in the past because of how angry Adam and his ex-wife made me. By the 4% mark I was already angry, but I didn't feel as intensely about it this time around. I wasn't quite as angry when the book end ...more

1/10/18 Audio: Listened to the audio for the first time. I liked the narrator.

1/20/17 reread: I'm able to enjoy this novel more now that I know which parts to skim and which parts to skip. There are entire sections that should just be deleted, imo,

“Locks, wards—you name it, and she could walk through it. Nothing could cage her. Nothing, that is, unless it plummeted out of a clear blue sky and sat on her.”
Thea Harrison, Dragon Bound

“I used to eat people, you know.”

If he meant to shock her out of crying, he succeeded. A snort burst out of her. “That’s awful,” she said. Her nose was clogged. “I mean it, that’s awful. It’s not funny. I’m not laughing.”

He sighed. “It was a long time ago. Thousands of years. Once I really was the beast the Elves call me.”

She closed her eyes, took a deep, shuddering breath and rubbed her fingers along the seam of his T-shirt. “What made you stop?”

“I had a conversation with somebody. It was an epiphany.” His voice was rueful.He rocked her. “From that point on I swore I would never eat something that could talk.”

“Hey, that’s kind of your version of turning vegetarian, isn’t it?”
Thea Harrison, Dragon Bound

“He wished he knew how to describe to her what he felt.
I started counting time for you.
I want to change who I am for you.
You are my Grace.
He was too full, and there weren't enough words.
He said, "I did not know I needed grace until I met you."
Then as she held him tightly, he knew that what he said had been enough.”
Thea Harrison, Oracle's Moon

Thea Harrison
“She leaned forward and staggered, as she confided in a whisper, “You’re the sexiest guy I’ve ever seen too. You know, your long, scaly, reptilian tail really is bigger than anybody else’s. Not that I’ve been with very many guys. Or was comparison shopping or anything.” She hiccupped and watched him worriedly as he guffawed. “Have I just gone over a conversational cliff?”
Thea Harrison, Dragon Bound

“Are you still running that bar?” Maureen’s voice dropped to a shocked whisper on the last word and Hope rolled her eyes, working the pick through Maureen’s thick hair.

“The Cue Club? Yes, ma’am, I am.” Angel leaned forward with her best devilish wink. “But I’m thinking of changing the name to the Den of Iniquity and getting some exotic dancers. You know, strippers.”

Miss Maureen’s eyes widened, pencil-thin brows nearly reaching the salt and pepper curls falling onto her forehead.”
