Book Review: A Pirate’s Curse by ML Guida

Book Review: A Pirate’s Curse by ML Guida

A Pirate’s Curse is the first book in M.L. Guida’s Legends of the Soaring Phoenix series. This is a very difficult review for me to write for two reasons. The first reason is simple, parts of A Pirate’s Curse were awesome and I loved it. Second, the protagonist was confusing and my dislike for just about every aspect of her character was a challenge for me. A challenge I was unable to overcome. I am going to unleash the conversation about what was great, I am starting with the positives! Pirates. Vampires. An intriguing backstory regarding a demon with a conscience was… Read more »

Book Review: The Scarlett Legacy by K.N. Lee

Book Review: The Scarlett Legacy by K.N. Lee

The Scarlett Legacy is the first book in K.N. Lee’s Woodland Creek series. With a great premise, I had my hopes up that this would be a great new dark paranormal, but it held nothing but disappointment. I felt The Scarlett Legacy was one I was truly destined to love. After hearing about it at a panel and the book being described as dark paranormal with maybe a touch of horror and gangster wizards. I was excited to dive into this new world. I dove right in and unfortunately the water wasn’t deep enough and damned if it didn’t hurt… Read more »

Book Review: Craved by an Alpha by Felicity Heaton

Book Review: Craved by an Alpha by Felicity Heaton

Craved by an Alpha is Felicity Heaton‘s fifth book in her Eternal Mates series.  The focus in Craved by an Alpha is on Cavanaugh, whom we have met briefly, in a few of the other titles. This is probably one of the hardest reviews I have done in quite some time.  I am absolutely in love with the world building in the Eternal Mates series, as well as the characters.  Craved by an Alpha just didn’t hold up.  The lack of dialog and chapters of internal thoughts was just too much for me.  I even attempted to skip to the… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Honeymoon Bite by Sharon Hamilton

Audiobook Review: Honeymoon Bite by Sharon Hamilton

  Honeymoon Bite by Sharon Hamilton is the first book in her series, the Golden Vampires of Tuscany.  This paranormal romance focuses on a traumatized bride and an unusual solo honeymoon that changes her life. Reviews like this are painful for this reviewer.  No joke.  I finished this audiobook several weeks ago and I knew it was going to be a tough review, but I have to fight through and persevere to maintain what I want to this site to be about. Honesty.  And I honestly did not like Honeymoon Bite. I think that the general story line was a great… Read more »

Audiobook Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Audiobook Review: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is her first book in the Outlander series.  It is normally tagged as Romance/Historical/Fantasy.  2 out of the 3 tags confuse the crap out of me and this might be one of the harder reviews I have ever had to write.  Seriously. Apparently, this review needs actual discussion points. So let me start with the writing.  There are many and it is entirely in first person.  800+ pages in first person is a lot.  That being said, the words held that classic feel and undeniable talent of a word artist.  The audiobook certainly did the author… Read more »

Book Review: Dead Sexy by Paige Tyler

Book Review: Dead Sexy by Paige Tyler

Dead Sexy by Paige Tyler is a Zombie Romance – falling under Paranormal Romance.  Generally, I love zombie stories and was very intrigued about this being a zombie romance.  Normally I see more zombie action is Horror and although the story line premise was quite brilliant, the execution was just not. Drake Parrish is cursed and it changes his life forever.  Just so nobody gets uber creaped out here – he is only a zombie on and off.  It kind of comes in waves and then goes away. So 80% of the time he looks completely normal.  So there is… Read more »
