I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    Story

    4-4.5 stars

    This was a very good story. I've read the rest of the series and this was a great addition. Jake is actually Stephano Jacob Colson Notte (but goes by name Jake Colson) who was changed by Vincent Argeneau to save his life in A Bite to Remember. He didn't take his change in circumstances well and I was happy to see his story and him coming to terms with everything.

    Nicole is a portraitist and a good woman. She's just getting out of a bad marriage to a man who was just trying to fleece her for her money. Nicole is related to Marguerite Argeneau's maid and has know Marguerite for many years. When she has troubles during her divorce, Marguerite thinks her soon to be Ex is trying to kill her off before the divorce to get her money but Nicole doesn't believe it.

    It's been 7 years since Jake was turned in to a Vampire to save him from sure death. He never wanted to be a Vampire (most of his family are and he had decided not to be changed) so when he finds himself a changed anyways he freaks and leaves everything behind. He ends up in a job doing personal security and is stewing in his life but not really making any progress when he is contacted by Marguerite asking for a favor. She explains about the issues Nicole is having and asks Jake to protect her by acting as her maid/cook for 2 weeks until the divorce is final and he agrees.

    Marguerite introduces Nicole and Jake and he starts the job for a 2-week trial and Marguerite leaves soon after. Jake and Nicole start to get to know each other and soon after, Jake realizes he can't read Nicole and she's probably his lifemate. He realizes that he hasn't really accepted or moved on with his life as it is now and now his lifemate is here he has to get things together soon. A couple of issues show up that seem to confirm that someone is attempting to kill Nicole. When Jake is made sick by one of these attempts, Nicole has to call Marguerite and his family, who come to help. The attempt ends up bringing Jake's differences to light and he's forced to tell her what he is and hope she'll accept it all without freaking. This actually helps Jake, because in explaining it to Nicole, he realizes just how faulty his own prejudices are and is able to put them to rest.

    Thankfully, because of her long friendship with Marguerite and her growing feelings for Jake, Nicole is accepting of Jake and his family's Vampire status. She also learns about lifemates and is sure she's not ready for a new relationship (especially with as fast as it all seems to be going) but she does decide to give Jake a chance. There is more danger as the attempts escalate but they find the person behind the attempts isn't her soon to be Ex after all. Then everyone is left scrambling, trying to find the true villain. When the villain shows up in the end, I was surprised to find out who it was. With a little bit of creativity, the villain is dispatched and the danger is ended and Jake and Nicole head in to a satisfying HEA that left me smiling.

    I really liked this story. Jake and Nicole are great and I was happy to see them get together. The story was interesting and kept me engaged throughout. The secondary characters are (as always) great. This was a great addition to the series. I'd recommend this. Thumbs up! :D

    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. Who wouldn't want to be a tall, dark, powerful vampire? Jake, for one. He's barely had time to adjust to his new state before he's roped into a family favor.

    Story

    This was a really good story. I've read the previous books in the series and love the series. While this isn't my favorite book in the series (Fate's Edge was my fave) it was extremely enjoyable and I'm really glad I read it.

    Charlotte is pretty cool. She's a healer that goes to live in the Edge after a problem marriage. She's happy there until an encounter with slavers destroys her life and makes her vow to take the slavers down. During this time she meets Richard. He's on a mission to take down the slavers and she convinces him to let her help him on his mission.

    Richard is a pretty good hero. He's been in the previous books but I never thought "Oh wow, Richard's so cool he should have his own book"...regardless of this, now that I've read it, I'm so happy that he did get his own book! For a number of reasons Richard decided to take on the slavers and take them out. When he meets Charlotte he doesn't want to take her with him because of what the fight against the slavers will do to her but she gives him no choice.

    Richard is attracted to Charlotte but considers himself a monster for what he has to do to take care of the slavers so he doesn't think there's any way she'd want him in return. The funny thing is that she feels the same. She is very attracted to Richard but feels she's an abomination for how she's using her magic against the slavers and feels unworthy of Richard. Fortunately they eventually realize the mutual attraction and succumb to it. This does make their mission harder though because now they have something to lose and aren't as eager to risk each other. It's good to see their feelings grow for each other. It felt like they both needed to indulge in their feeling for each other to keep themselves from getting buried in the darkness (emotional darkness) that surrounded them. And those feelings ended up being their salvation later in the story.

    The story is fast paced and pretty interesting. Charlotte and Richard are constantly on the move trying to accomplish what they need to. I loved seeing most of the characters from previous books in the story as well and some of the old story lines getting completed (so to speak).

    Overall this was a really good story. I really enjoyed it and thought it was a great addition to the series. I hope there's more of the series because it's so good I'd hate to have it end. Ilona Andrews is a great writer and I'd recommend this book and the whole series. I'd buy them all again without hesitation. :D

But even though she possesses rare magical healing abilities, her life has brought her nothing but pain.

    Christmas Pride by Shelly Laurenston

    4 stars

    This was a pretty good story. I’ve read some stories by Shelly Laurenston but never tried this series before. I like it so far.

    Dez grew up in the Bronx and because a police detective. She’s tough and doesn’t take any crap and loves her job. Unfortunately she has issues with men not being able to accept her or her job. She tends to avoid dating and when she meets back up with Mace again (after not seeing each other since they were 14 years old) she tries to keep her distance from him, thinking he only wants one thing.

    Mace is a Lion shifter. He was a runt when he was younger and still loved Dez, the girl who always accepted him as he was. He was in the Navy for years but as soon as he gets out of the service he looks Dez up. He’s determined to get in to her life and make her part of his in a very permanent way. Unfortunately this is difficult since she won’t give him a chance and is constantly pushing him away.

    There is a plot line that brings Dez in to the shifter world to an extent, when a Pride male is killed and she’s investigating it. It makes things interesting and brings things out pretty quickly. When things become too hard to explain, Mace ends up having to entrust her with his secret faster than planned to, knowing that if he lied to her he’d end up paying for it in the end. I was happy with how well she handled the shifter issue. TBH, she had more problems with Mace trying to get seriously involved with her than she did with him being a shifter…an interesting problem to have…

    I liked Mace and Dez’s story and liked seeing them together. I will admit that Dez being determined that Mace was only looking for sex (without any actual knowledge to back it up) and always pushing him away was a bit annoying a times (and funny at others). It did become gratifying thought, to see Dez gradually slack up on her defenses and letting Mace in little by little, even while she’s still protesting. I really liked Maces’ relationship with his Wolf pack buddies and there were some interesting secondary characters that look like they will be fun to see more of in future stories.

    Overall this was a pretty good story and was an enjoyable read.

    Shaw's Tail

    4-4.5 stars

    This was a very good story as well. I liked Ronnie Lee and Brendon as a couple. The story wasn't action packed but it was a fun but sexy story that I really enjoyed.

    Ronnie Lee Reed is a wolf shifter. She's always been a wild child (she has trouble with schedules and restrictions) and hates being tied down. She's just moved to town with her pack and has decided it's time to straighten out her life. She gets off track when she gets involved with a lion shifter in trouble.

    Brendon Shaw is a lion shifter (we meet him briefly in the previous story). I like Brendon a lot. He's a good guy and surprisingly fun and is able to be sneaky when needed. He gets himself in a jam that Ronnie's pack helps him out of. Ronnie gets volunteered to stay with Brendon while he has a fever and when he gets a whiff of Ronnie he wants her immediately. Since he's sick he doesn't get very far and once he's recovered she's gone. He didn't even get her name but he's determined to find her and she ends up closer than he imagined.

    Regardless of Ronnie's decision to settle down, she's not real anxious to do it with Brendon and makes things difficult for him as he tries to woo her. It's not that she doesn't like him because she does (a lot), but he's a different breed (apparently this can cause issues for the children) and regardless of her feeling she should settle down, she's afraid of being trapped. Brendon realizes her reluctance and is rather sneaky in getting her to stick around long enough to realize he's her one (like he's already realized she's his one). I really liked seeing their interactions, sometime they were very humorous (parts had me laughing) and there were parts that were sweet as we see the emotions growing.

    Overall this was a sweet, humorous and sexy story that I really enjoyed. The characters were great and I look forward to seeing more of the secondary characters get their own books. I'll definitely be continuing the series. I'd recommend this book. :D

  • Outlander

    "The Reason for the Existence of Audio Books"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I had read a few audiobooks and had even joined Audible. But until I read this book I did not understand the magic of the format. Before reading this book I had no interest in1) romance 2) science fiction or fantasy and 3) time travel genres. I'd heard enough about the series that it piqued my interest because I loved historical fiction. Especially the period of time I knew the book covered. And I always found the challenge of tackling a big book rewarding.

    This book changed so many of my perceptions of genre and reading format. While I still argue that though there is definitely a romantic and sexual relationship at the books core, it was only one part of the adventure. It still doesn't fit the romance genre to me, but it did such a good job of weaving romance and sexuality into the adventure it made me curious to read more traditional romance novels and see if they handled the topic as well. They didn't, but I discovered other good books I never would have tried of not for Outlander.

    Likewise, other than Anne Rice's Vampire series which I had read many years ago, this was one of my very rare ventures into fantasy-science fiction. Setting aside my understanding of reality to accept someone else's is always difficult. But reading Outlander and the subsequent books in the series, I found myself trying to work out in my mind how this might have happened. It encouraged me to explore this genre more thoroughly as well. Even more surprising, it made me evaluate my perception of "time", what it means and how it works. I found myself paying more attention to physics and the study of the time and space relationship.

    The twists and turns of the plot kept me turning the page just like the best mysteries I read. While reading the book there were enough unanswered questions, clues and short glimpses of scenes or events that caught my attention and made me store them away to remember "when all was revealed." But all was not revealed at the end and I found myself turning over these clues and snippets, trying to determine their significance, what I thought they meant and what their purpose was. One requirement of a great book is that you cannot get it out of your mind after you turn the last page. This book met that criteria. I thought about it for weeks.

    Most importantly I learned that other voices can bring a whole new level to the reading experience, if it is the right voice for the right book. I would have enjoyed this book regardless, but if I read it myself and heard my voice in my head the characters would never have come so alive as they did in Davina Porter's voice. This is a perfect marriage of book and narrator. I was so surprised when I later discovered more about Porter's age, experience and background. She made a 21 year old Scotsman come to life. Her voice is Jamie to me. She handled each character wonderfully, although it is the first and only time I have ever listened to a book or series of books and thought a woman narrator did a better job on the men's voices than she did on the women's. I have loved hearing how the narrator has aged the character's voices throughout the series. You hear the young Jamie in the middle aged Jamie's voice, but you also hear the growth and maturity. I have accepted the narrators in the Lord John series, even when the book includes Jamie and actually think they are narrated well. But I am not certain I could accept another narrator for future Outlander books.

    Finally, my initial interest in this book was from a historical fiction viewpoint. A good historical fiction novel, by Bernard Cornwell or Sharon Kay Penman sticks to as much historical fact as possible but presents it in an engaging and relate-able format. It makes you interested enough in the times and events that you will endure the dry-er, less lively recitation of facts of that same event or time in a nonfiction book, just to learn more. Outlander and this series delivered that in spades.





  • First Grave on the Right: Charley Davidson, Book 1

    "Very, Very Funny Book, Suffered from My Bad Timing"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This was often a side-splittingly silly book. It was totally unbelievable but that didn't matter. The plot was convoluted and difficult to follow but that didn't really matter ...much. The romantic hero was totally unappealing because he was either dead, Satan or nothing but grey smoke and it is hard to make any of that sexy. It is just creepy.

    But the snappy writing, the quick one-liners and the silly naivete of the heroine made all of those faults totally unimportant. And the whole book was written so tongue-in-cheek that those really weren't faults. They were part of what made the whole package so fun to read.

    Because of who the characters were, the story could have so quickly gotten bogged down into philosophical discussions of good versus evil, spirit versus soul, etc. The author could have easily pulled an "Anne Rice" on us. But she didn't. She kept it light, fluffy and entertaining.

    Her secondary characters were well written and strong enough to not wilt away in the glow of the main character. I loved her best friend, the various apparitions in her life and especially, Rocket.

    The narration was great

    My only complaint is that the bits of information that actually moved the plot forward, that explained what was going on and ultimately, what would lead you to read the second and third books in the series were so buried under the pithy one-liners and double entendres, that if you blinked you missed them. I finished the book not sure I had a clue about what actually happened in the plot. And wishing she had focused more on certain traits of Charley, like the fact she had perfect memory of everything that happened from the second she was born. But this might have been a timing problem on my part. I'm not sure I was up for quite so much humor in my current read when I sat down with this book. And if you are not in the mood for good-natured silliness, the book can be unfulfilling. Like eating your favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry's when all you really wanted was toast. But that is not the author's fault.

  • How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire: Love at Stake, Book 1

    "If Profanity is Called for, Please Use It"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    There were parts of the book I really enjoyed. But there were three issues that bugged me.

    First, while I don't like books that have a bunch of unnecessary or unnaturally used profanity, when it makes sense and sounds natural, then use it. If I had to hear "God's Blood one more time I thought I would hurl my iPhone. Even a "Damn" would not have been amiss.

    Next, I kept reading reviews about the book being funny. I didn't see much humor in the plot or the characters. The one obvious humorous reference was the trip to the dentist. And that wasn't cracking me up. Molly Harper does humorous vampires much funnier.

    Finally, I didn't like the relationship between the heroine and her father. For some reason, that made me really uncomfortable.

  • Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs: Jane Jameson, Book 1

    "This was a laugh out loud read"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Molly Harper writes sharp, witty very, very, very, very funny books. I have yet to be disappointed. This is the first in her vampire series and the second book of hers I read and the second book of hers I fell in love with.

    The books are somewhat similar to the Sookie Stackhouse series but lighter, tighter and funnier. Harper's vampire series' books don't get bogged down in the elaborate creation of an alternative universe, as the later books in the Stackhouse series do. They just enjoy the world they've been plopped down in.

    Harper's books have some plot and some suspense but are chock full of fascinating characters. Her characters are so entertaining, you almost resent when she pulls you back into the plot and away from relating to an individual character. Dick Cheney is one of my favorite characters of all time and should have a series of his own.

    The first book is spent setting up the series. You meet almost all of the characters, you get quite a bit of background about each. And you laugh, a lot. I've said before, I see a lot of similarities between Harper's books and the early Janet Evanovich books. Reading this book I found myself bursting into laughter at the most inappropriate times.

    The narrator fits perfectly with the writing style and the flow of the book. She is very much the voice of Jane Jameson, a great heroine, but she is believable with all of the characters.

    I really recommend this book.

I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

  • "Don't tell anyone that I liked it..."

    111 of 129 helpful votes

    I bought this audiobook because it was in the sci/fi fantasy category. The write up claims it has "a dash of time travel" - and that's all it has in the way of fantasy/time travel - a dash.

    Time travel is used as a way to launch a HISTORICAL ROMANCE. And, ultimately, this is exactly what it is: a very detailed romance novel set in 18th century Scotland.

    Keeping that in mind: it is VERY well done. The narration is terrific and the story engaging (though I did use the fast forward several times to get through the long descriptions of clan family lines, or details of the clothing/housing/etc of the time).

    I don't like romances and I don't like historical fiction so I thought the two together would mean I had wasted my credit. Not so. Even though it's as far from my usual listening choices (sci/fi or cop/detective stuff) as it could be, the story flew by: I caught myself smiling at events in the story pretty regularly.

    Assuming a starting point of 3 stars for an average story, I added one star for the narration (which brings the story to life) and a second star for making me smile in public. I took off a half star for requiring me to fast forward some of the descriptions = 4.5 star story. So I give it 5 stars because 4.5 is not possible. (I did buy the next book in the series too.)

    Remember though, this is a romantic novel with some/lots of sex (though having made it through the sex scenes in Altered Carbon, this is pretty "romantic" sex) - so if you're looking for sci/fi or fantasy, you will be disappointed in this.

    Otherwise... if you're not the romantic type but, like me, stumble onto this story by accident only to find that you like it - don't worry, we won't tell anyone...

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.
