URBAN FANTASY- “BROKEN SOUL” BY FAITH HUNTER


BROKEN SOUL BY FAITH HUNTER
Book Description
Publication Date: October 7, 2014
Jane Yellowrock is a vampire killer for hire—but other creatures of the night still need to watch their backs….

When the Master of the city of New Orleans asks Jane to improve security for a future visit from a delegation of European vampires, she names an exorbitant price—and Leo is willing to pay. That’s because the European vamps want Leo’s territory, and he knows that he needs Jane to prevent a total bloodbath. Leo, however, doesn’t mention how this new job will change Jane’s life or the danger it will bring her and her team.

Jane has more to worry about than some greedy vampires. There’s a vicious creature stalking the streets of New Orleans, and its agenda seems to be ripping Leo and her to pieces. Now Jane just has to figure out how to kill something she can’t even see….

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

BROKEN SOUL will leave you on the edge of your seat. Jane is in deep with vampire politics and somebody wanting to kill her, she also has to get everything ready for the European Mithrans coming to town. While taking lessons on swordsmanship, Vamp HQ is attacked by a creature of myth, L’arcenciels, a creature of light. Also the Devil‘s Three show up and this is when the shit really hits the fan. During practice with swords, Jane ends up paralyzing Grégoire. This is a great fighting match between these two characters. She has a bomb left on her doorstep, and then she also has a sniper trying to kill her. The characters and storyline are well-developed.  I love the inner monologue she has with Beast. It always puts a smile on my face . If you have followed the series and you are rooting for something to happen between Jane and Bruiser, you better read the book. :) BROKEN SOUL will not disappoint, and I give it 5/5 stars. If you have not started this series, I urge you to do so.

BRAZEN BOOK REVIEW- “NO MORE, MR. NICE GUY” BY AMY ANDREWS


no more mr. nice guy
Book Description
Publication Date: September 29, 2014
A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He’s done playing the nice guy…

Newly single school counselor Josie Butler just made herself a Sexy To-Do list (featuring Bad Boys only). To her mortification, her best friend‘s gorgeous older brother Mack finds it…and laughs. But when Josie goes looking for some sexy fun, Mack’s nice guy side turns all hot bad-assery, and suddenly she’s pinned against an alley wall. Hottest. Sex. Ever.

Veterinarian Mack Kennedy can’t believe Josie wants to ditch her sweet, girl-next-door lifestyle. Even worse, that she’d consider doing it with anyone but him. When she leaves for London they’ll go back to being ‘just friends’ but until then, he’s going to show her just how bad nice guys can be.

And it’s the perfect plan, as long as no one finds out… and no one falls in love.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by NETGALLEY for an honest REVIEW.

NO MORE, MR. NICE GUY is a brazenly hot romance. This is the first time that I have read Amy Andrews, and it will not be the last. The characters and storyline are very well-developed. Mack’s girlfriend dumped him, but when Josie comes to town after breaking up with her longtime boyfriend, things start to heat up. One night while drinking with her girlfriend Sal, Mack’s sister, Josie writes a sex list. Mack finds it and cannot stand it that anyone else but him will help her with this list. So it is time for NO MORE, MR. NICE GUY  and hello bad boy. When he has to help her when she is accosted by three drunk men , he fulfils one of her wishes on her sex list. Sex out in public. :)  They have to also try and protect their hearts, so that they don’t ruin their friendship. Rebound sex turns into making love, and this only has one way it can end. So Josie leaves early so they both won’t be hurt. I loved this book, with its hot, steamy sex scenes that had me grabbing for the ice water.  I cannot wait to read another Amy Andrews book. I give this book 5/5 stars. I urge you to read this book when it is released.

Book Description

A bullheaded moose doesn’t stand a chance when a fox decides to make him her mate.

Boris left to defend his country still a boy. He came back a changed man. A damaged man.

But Jan still wants him.

A man of few words, Boris has a firm way of saying No, but this determined vixen knows he’s her mate. Despite some less than subtle overtures, Jan has not had much success in getting her bullheaded moose to notice her, but all that changes when her life is put in danger.

Suddenly the damaged soldier keeps finding excuses to come to her rescue, but as far as Jan is concerned, her mate is the one in need of saving.

It will take some subtle maneuvering to outfox her moose into admitting he loves her, but this wily vixen is more than ready for the challenge. And if that doesn’t work, momma’s offered to
loan her the shot gun used for her own engagement.

Welcome to Kodiak Point where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of five books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

Barrett English, aka “the Shark,” is the fair-haired, first-born of the English brothers, and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way.

Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett’s childhood estate. The daughter of his family’s gardener and housekeeper, she was…

The Conglomerate’s most dangerous convicts have made the prison ship Perdition their home. And they will defend it…Perdition is under siege. Mercenaries have boarded the station with orders to take control of the facility—and execute the prisoners. Their commander is offering full pardons to the first five inmates willing to help the mercs complete their mission.

Leading a ragtag army of inmates, Dred and her champion, Jael, wage a bloody guerilla war of chaos and carnage against impossible odds. But no matter how dire the outlook, the Dread Queen never backs down…
