BOOK REVIEW FOR “ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE” BY LYNSAY SANDS

Product Details

No one does wickedly funny and irresistibly steamy like New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands—especially in this red-hot romance between a reluctant vampire and the beauty who needs his help.

Luck be a vampire tonight . . .

When Nicole Phillips agreed to hire a housekeeper, she pictured someone a little frumpy and almost certainly female. Instead, she gets gorgeous, unmistakably male Jake Colson. The man is proving indispensable in the kitchen—and everywhere else. Except Jake might not be a mortal man at all.

. . . and every night

Who wouldn’t want to be a tall, dark, powerful vampire?Jake, for one. He’s barely had time to adjust to his newstate before he’s roped into a family favor. Still, secretly playing bodyguard to sweet, sexy Nicole is turning out to be the wildest ride of his life. First, he’ll put a stop to whoever’s targeting her. Then he’ll prove that this kind of love, and luck, happens only once in an eternity.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I always love a good Lynsay Sands book. The story line was great, and the characters were well- developed. I really loved Jake and Nicole. They were very believable characters, and their character’s grew as the story progressed. Jake had to accept that he was not a monster, when he was turned like in all the  horror movies he watched as a kid. Nicole had to learn to trust Jake enough to fall in love with him and let him turn her. The one that is stalking he and trying to kill them, you will never guess. It is a nice little twist to the story. Lynsay Sands signature humor is right there in every page. I give this book 5/5 stars. I cannot wait until the next one.

I WENT BACK AND RE-READ THIS SERIES. I REALLY LOVED THIS SERIES, AND THIS BOOK. This book has strong world building, with bits of humor thrown in throughout the book. Something went wrong with Holly’s magic when she was younger when a spell she was doing went wrong, and now she can only do minor spells instead of big spells.  Now Holly and Caravelli are dragged into finding out who is trying to control the demons, and stop the that is coming into our world.  This is a great series, and I recommend it to everyone. I hope the author will continue the series in the future. I give it a 5/5 stars.
Here are the other books in the series.

“TAINTED BLOOD, TAINTED NIGHT” BY E.S. MOORE

Product Details

Book Description

Publication Date:July 3, 2012
In the darkness, it’s easy to lose your way. . .Kat Redding is a vampire with a job to do–wiping out the vamps and werewolves who prey on Pureblood humans. Someone has to do it. . .as long as that someone is her. But suddenly Kat, also known as Lady Death, has competition, and it’s causing problems. Vampire houses and werewolf clans alike are blaming her for a spate of gruesome murders, and Kat needs to figure out who’s really responsible before she becomes the next target. . .

On the hunt, she forms an uneasy alliance with both the Luna Cult and a powerful rogue werewolf. But the truths Kat’s uncovering–about her enemies and her few remaining confidantes–are far from comforting. And when the chance comes to leave her life of vengeance behind, Kat must decide whether her real motive lies in protecting the innocent, or sating her own fierce hungers.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

This second installment of the series is even better. Kat is being framed for some gruesome killings in the name of Lady Death. Now she has to find out who is behind them, and teams up with her sworn enemy of the Luna Cult. In her investigation she finds evidence that her brother might be alive and behind the killings.

The characters and story line are awesome, fast paced, with lots of action. I really enjoy this series, and highly recommend it to everyone. I give it a 5/ 5 stars.

Here is the next book in the series.Product Details

BOOK REVIEW FOR “HIGHBORN (THE DARK REDEMPTION SERIES)” BY YVONNE NAVARRO

51K5DvaBcZL._SL160_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-dp,TopRight,12,-18_SH30_OU01_AA160_[1]

Book Description

Publication Date:October 26, 2010
EVERYONE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE. BRYNNA MALAK MIGHT BE THE EXCEPTION TO THE RULE.
Brynna is a fallen angel trying to earn redemption. She’s escaped from Hell in search of a new life on Earth, but Lucifer’s deadliest hunters are hot on her trail. Police Detective Eran Redmond is after her for a different reason: he needs Brynna to help him find a serial killer who is terrifying Chicago . . . and the trail leads them right to Hellspawned demons of the most dangerous kind. She’s also got a very human problem: dealing with a stubborn, attractive cop who makes her long for everything she knows she can’t have.
Staying alive long enough to earn a shot at Heaven will mean breaking some major rules in the mortal world, as she learns just how complicated and wonderful being human can be. With so much stacked against her, even Brynna has to wonder if she’s crazy. But she’s not giving in without a fight.
Not a chance in Hell. . . .
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
This is a richly layered story, different from some that I have read. Brynna is a fallen angel seeking redemption. She escapes Hell to Earth so she can redeem herself to God and return to Heaven. On Earth she meets Eran Redmond, a cop,  who deal with her because she is a witness to a murder on her first day on Earth.
Once the pace picks up it is an excellent read.
The story and the characters just pull you in. There is two books in the series, and I hope there will be more. I loved this story line. I give it a 4/ 5 stars just because it took it a little to pick up the pace of the story.
 Here is the second book in the series.

REVIEW FOR “ALWAYS ON MY MIND” BY JILL SHALVIS

ALWAYS ON MY MINDTHERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE REAL THING
After dropping out of pastry school and
messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to
accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she
finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer
up Jack’s ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib – that she and Jack are
more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky
firefighter feels too real to handle . . .

No-strings attachments suit
Jack just fine – perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away. But as Jack
and Leah break every one of their “just friends” rules, he longs to turn their
pretend relationship into something permanent. Do best friends know too much
about each other to risk falling in love? Or will Jack and Leah discover
something new about each other in a little town called Lucky Harbor?

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I just finished this book last night, and it was fantastic. Jill Shalvis knows how to great story. The characters and the plot line are amazing.  Leah and Jack have been friends ever since Leah moved into the house next to Jack. He has always been there for here through the hard times, when her Dad was always telling her she would never amount to nothing. He slowly started to fall in love with her and he didn’t know it. She has always loved him, but did not want to mess up their friendship. She wanted to prove that she could make something of herself, and that she was not always the screw up that her father kept calling her.

When she comes back to help her grandmother with her bakery while she recuperates, she ends up telling a little lie to Jack’s mother to make her feel better. Now her and Jack have to start acting like a real couple, but is it all an act or is it real.  In the end they both profess their love after Leah nearly walks out on Jack once again.

I loved this story, with all the laughter and humorous situations that the characters are put in. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series. I give it 5/ 5 stars.

Here are the books in the series.
