Publisher: Decadent Publishing Purchased: Review Copy from Author What I Loved:  Connor was a fantastic guy.  I love that he wasn’t an anti-hero but a strong, straight-forward, gotta get the girl I like kind of guy!  He really struck me as the kind of guy you could build your romance dreams around because he could exist in the real world! In other words, he is the kind of contemporary romance leading guy that I can root for. […]

From Goodreads: Zach Barrows is an ambitious young White House staffer whose career takes an unexpected turn when he’s partnered with Nathaniel Cade, a secret agent sworn to protect the President. But Cade is no ordinary civil servant. Bound 140 years ago by a special blood oath, Nathaniel Cade is a vampire. He battles nightmares before they can break into the daylight world of the American dream, enemies far stranger – and far more dangeorus – than civilians have ever imagined.Blood Oath is the first in a series of novels featuring Nathaniel Cade, the President’s vampire. Publisher: Putnam Purchased: I won this book in a give-away What I Loved:  Zach and Cade were to me, like Chloe/Jack were when they started working together on the show 24.  It was fun to watch them work out their working relationship, especially with all the intense situations that they were thrown in too.  I really loved the character of Griff–he added that extra buffer as Zach/Cade got to know each other.  This was just a fun, thrilling, fast-paced, topsy-turvy ride that kept me hooked from beginning to end. What I Liked:  The story was really good at keeping you on your toes.  Though […]

Book 79: The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen: Rating 4 Wine Glasses

Book 79: The Surgeon by Tess Gerritsen: Rating 4 Wine Glasses

Divider

From Authors Site: In her most masterful novel of medical suspense, New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen creates a villain of unforgettable evil-and the one woman who can catch him before he kills again. He slips into their homes at night and walks silently into bedrooms where women lie sleeping, unaware of the horrors they soon will endure. The precision of the killer’s methods suggests he is a deranged man of medicine, propelling the Boston newspapers and the frightened public to name him “The Surgeon.” The cops’ only clue rests with another surgeon, the victim of a nearly identical crime. Two years ago, Dr. Catherine Cordell fought back and killed her attacker before he could complete his assault. Now she hides her fears of intimacy behind a cool and elegant exterior and well-earned reputation as a top trauma surgeon. Cordell’s careful façade is about to crack as this new killer re-creates, with chilling accuracy, the details of Cordell’s own ordeal. With every new murder he seems to be taunting her, cutting ever closer, from her hospital to her home. Her only comfort comes from Thomas Moore, the detective assigned to the case. But even Moore cannot protect Cordell from […]

Book 78: Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home by Michele Bardsley

Book 78: Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home by Michele Bardsley

Divider

   From Goodreads: To prove her journalistic chops, Libby Monroe ends up in Broken Heart, Oklahoma, chasing down bizarre rumors of strange goings-on and finding vampires, lycanthropes, and zombies. She never expects to fall in lust with one of them, but vampire/single dad Ralph Genessa is too irresistible. Only the town is being torn in two by a war between the undead and Libby may be the only thing that can hold Broken Heart together. What I Loved: I really love the continuation of this series and how it is encompassing the books that came before it. The couple in this book were both very lovable and relatively equals (no real alpha/beta). He was a strong male role model: good father, loyal husband (when his wife was alive), and had good priorities. She was a strong, educated, and earthy based person that you could count on. I really just enjoyed watching them fall in love (and no that isn’t a spoiler–it is a romance novel LOL) What I Liked: I really liked her parents. Her mom cracked me up! Also still love the triplet werewolfs–they are just a breath of humorous fun times. I enjoyed seeing the couples from the […]

Book 77: Because Your Vampire Said So by Michele Bardsley: Rating 3 Wine Glasses

From Goodreads: When you’re immortal, being a mom won’t kill you— it will only make you stronger Even though all the non-vamps in Broken Heart, Oklahoma, skipped town, Patsy Donahue has kept her hair salon up and running thanks to the werewolves prowling around. They know how important good grooming is, especially a certain rogue shapeshifter who’s as sexy as he is deadly. Now, if only she could put a leash on her wild teenage son, who’s up to his neck in danger. The stress would kill Patsy, if she wasn’t already undead. But her maternal instinct is still alive and kicking. And no one had better mess with her own flesh and blood… What I Loved:  I am really digging this world setup in Broken Heart.  While these books are definitely fun and campy, they do manage to bring light to some very important topics: 1rs book-infidelity, 2nd book-teenage pregnancy, and this one Drug/Alcohol addiction.  Michele has done a wonderful job of mixing the humor, vamp/werewolf/hybrid goodness, and some awareness in her books. Plus, she mentions the show Supernatural in this book (great taste there LOL) What I Liked: I really enjoyed all the secondary characters in this book!  […]
