A nice quick read
The BDSM was handled very well.
The author page says it is the first book in the series. I hope to see more!
This was a quick steamy read. Lauren was a bit more insecure than I generally like and Jaime is too. Beyond that the chemistry is great and the steam is well steamy!! The BDSM is handled very well.
I loved his best friend Sawyer and hope he has a book in the series! This was a good start for the new series!
Cover Art - Deliciously wicked!! I could lick it, so yummy!
Great start to a fascinating new series. A fresh new spin on modern times meets post apocalypse. I am very intrigued in seeing where this series is headed.
Carla is a really interesting character, she struggles with coming to terms with her new circumstances. The attraction with Taye is immediate, and she does put up a good fight. How can she resist a smexy Alpha wolf who is set to love and seduce his mate! They have a great dynamic, even though things happen quickly the feeling seem real.
The narrative is mostly from the two leads POV and alternates between them. Really great for understanding both sides of the story! Really seamless changes were easy to follow.
There are many supporting characters introduced and I am very interested in hearing all their stories. Imagine being thrown fifty years into the future! Whoa what a big thing to have to adapt to and then find out there was an Apocalypse when you vanished from your time! Loads of meat on this story.
The smexy stuff is uber delicious!! I could really go for an Alpha guy who has learned how to please his woman from all the best erotic novels! Okay, the terms he learns for the fun parts are a touch off, but the idea is there!! Oh la, I definitely sign up for that seduction!! Plenty of yummy details will get ya hot and bothered!!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Clementine Cage, she rocks!! Great voices and a real feel for the movement of the story. She reads at a nice quick pace, love that, but if you like it slower you can slow it down on Audible. Really enjoyed the pairing of this narrator with this intriguing series! I am excited to hear more of her of the rest of the books.
Overall, I am really intrigued by this new series. Yummy Alpha men who are also wolves, I am a sucker for shifters! This is a new concept for me and I am definitely hooked!
I have such big love for this book and can not wait to see the series progress!!! This is such a wonderful blend of modern urban fantasy and Celtic myth! These are not sweet fairy stories, they are based on the traditional tales where the fae are beautiful but cruel. From my youth I recall being fascinated with the Tylwyth Teg, Sidhe and all the the dark Welsh myths. This is a terrific adult revisit of those myths that held me enthralled.
I really liked Brooke from the start, she is so loving and aware of herself. When she meets smexy Aiden, sparks fly, well that and a very well placed punch! I love their dynamic and really felt them connect. The romance is quick but the feeling ring true. I am willing to believe in love/lust at first sight. Sometimes your heart just knows before the head has a chance to catch up.
The smexy stuff is delicious!! Aiden is definitely the Alpha kind of guy I love. He is dominant in all the right ways!! The bedroom door is open and the smexiness happens a couple times!! Loads of steam detail, but not quite as far as a full erotic romance. I am all for the mainstream hotness this book dishes out!
The story this time is very involved, this progress at a steady pace and then speed up in the end. The twist wasn't much of a surprise, but no less enjoyable. Great pacing in the story, it really flowed as the details were revealed.
The narration bounces between the POV of the two leads, but there is a bonus when we see POV of some supporting characters. It makes for a more rounded story and you really get insights into all, especially the villains of the tale. You really get to understand the fae better, I may now have a little crush on the Lord of the Hunt, is it too much to hope he will get a HEA?
I love the way this book connects with the other, I did worry at first there would be no connection. It takes time and you will have to be patient, but when it reveals itself, it is wonderful! I loved the first meeting of Aiden and Rhys, classic!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Justine Eyre, who is fabulous!! She has a delicious way with the smexy Welsh accents, never could resist a brogue! I loved her energy in the read, she had a real feel for the story and just when speed things up to match the action. I am all about finding more of her reads!! She had quite the task with several male voices and the accents. Terrific match for this series!
Overall, I am in love! I am totally hooked and can not wait for the next book. The concept and myth carry this romance over to a real winner in my book! Ms. Harper certainly has a way of crafting engaging characters into a dynamic story. I am totally hooks. The only negative her is I have to wait until 2015 for the next book!!!
For anybody who follows my reviews, you know I love mythology in all forms, this is a delightful turn into Celtic myth. They had the first fae stories and their fairies were far from the sweet versions we see today. They are beautiful but cruel creatures who one should always tread lightly around. Best not to have them take notice of you!
The beginning of the story is rocky as it sets up our hero's past, we get a little too much warrior detail for my liking. Rhys has had a tough life and things don't get much better for him when he comes across the fae. This section made me fall in love with him more than a little bit.
Jump forward to modern time to meet out heroine, Morgan, who believes in science and is skeptical of magic. She has a big heart and an affinity for animals. I love her spunk and moral fortitude, but I hate that she took so long to see what was right in front of her face. No matter how improbable.
The romance move at a slower pace, which surprised me cause I expected Rhys to be all Alpha, guess the time as a Grim taught him to be patient. When they do get together, oh boy, they could burn the barn down with all that hotness!!! Things get nice and spicy, sadly it was only for a scene or two.
The narrative alternates between the two leads POV. This is great because you get a fuller view of events. It definitely helps get into how Rhys is working to make the relationship work. You also feel Morgan's struggle between science and the man she has come to love.
The story flowed beautifully, great descriptions and implementation of old world myth with modern times. The cast of supporting characters are dynamic and engaging, they really help to sell the story. I might be a little in love with Leo and his new house guest!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Justine Eyre, who has a wonderful feel for the story and characters. I loved all her voices and never had trouble distinguishing who was speaking. The accents are divine, I always was a sucker for an Irish brogue! Her pace was terrific and she has a wonderful way of using her voice to add to the energy of the moment. Definitely going to look for more of her reads!!
Overall, this book as a great find. I was enthralled from the beginning and can't wait to see what happens next. I hope it is connected to this book and not a similar theme in a different location. I really did love the characters and location Ms Harper created.
There is much about this series I love and much that annoys. Regardless it is entertaining and I have been hooked for quite some time.
With this book we are back in Boston, where the who series began. I have made no secret that I thought MJ and Stephen should be together, this book makes it a point to show every example of how they just don't suit. I am sure Ms Laurie is trying to put paid to that relationship, it is successful but heavy handed. She also take every opportunity to show how perfect Heath is for her, fine I will admit he has won me over.
Gil seems to have mellowed this book, thank goodness! He tends to be uber drama and a little hard to take. I am thrilled he is more bearable this time around. His relationship has progressed as well, it is rather sweet.
The mystery this time is just as dark as recent books. The ghosts they are encountering are really evil. What bothers me is that they do not seem to know much about these sorts of ghosts. If you have been practicing since puberty, one would expect you would know about all aspects of your craft. They seem to come across many spectral entities that have them stumped. This is something that has bothered me throughout the series.
The romance has progressed and they seem to be at a precipice in the relationship. I expect that the next book will have them engaged. The smexy time is strictly closed bedroom door, but they do get rather frisky.
I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Eileen Stevens, who is delightful as always. She has a real feel for the characters and energy of the books. Her voices have been consistent and distinctive throughout. I appreciate that Gil's voice is less high pitched. Ms Stevens does a wonderful job with the creepy elements of the story, adding to the sinister feel with a truly eerie voice of the bad guy. She is always a pleasure to hear on this series.
Overall, I am still a fan of the series and will be on the lookout for the next book. I have been with MJ and company this long, might as well take it to the very end. There are a few loose threads that need to be tied up.
There is just something so appealing about this series. Addison is a certified hotmess, but ya gotta love her. She falls int solving her cases despite her best efforts to mess things up. It a wonder the girl has survived, they should have a special room at the hospital just for her!
I have said in the past that I think Savage is a better match for her in the romance department, but Ms Hart is determined to have us think she should be with Nick. Maybe she is just the girl to get him to lighten up and challenge him. They do have chemistry that peels the wallpaper.
The smexy stuff is mostly closed bedroom with hints of details here and there. Things get hot and bothered but never go to full on erotic details. Addison has a way of bringing out the beast in men who are interested in her. I have also noted she rarely gets it on in the bedroom, so many other parts of the house are more interesting!
The narrative is still first person, Addison has a quirky POV that makes the series a laugh riot. I do not usually like this tense, but I have found it doesn't bother me as much in audio. Go figure.
There are so many lively and dynamic supporting characters in the series. I love everybody and really they are the reason Addison survives all her mishaps! I might even have a book crush on dishy Savage!
The mystery this time was a bit all over the place. I would have liked more clues to make it solvable. The end was a but Scooby Doo for me, the culprit came from left field. It was just all over the place and I had a little trouble keeping up with all the sub-plots.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Connie Ventress, who does a wonderful job as always. She has a wonderful Southern accent that makes the character come to life. Great pacing and a soothing tone. She is perfectly matched to the series and I love her energy. Definitely hope to hear more of her reads!
Overall, this series is a guilty pleasure. It started out feeling very similar to another series but it is slowly becoming it's own animal. I am hooked and can't wait to see what happens next! Oh boy, that ending was a kicker!!
Quick hot read, super sexy but limited story. This is one of those quickie books that is all about the sex. I am sure this is somebodies fantasy, not so much mine. Still the smexy stuff is hautt!!! Might need to consider my own closet encounter!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Courtney Jones. She has a great pace and tone throughout the read. Personally, I think a male narrator would have been better. It just never reached quite the intensity the words called for. While she is fantastic on the book I need a sexy male voice to really make it hot.
Disclosure - I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
This is a really fun and quirky series, at times it feels very familiar, rather like a few other characters on TV and in books. Still it is entertaining and draws you in like a warm cup of hot chocolate. I am enamored with the characters and sold on the whole series!
Addison is kind of a hot mess as a detective, she solves cases in spit of her ineptitude and too stupid to live moments. She is very lucky to have such a great support system with Kate, Nick RoseMarie, her mom and now Savage. I would hate to see what would happen if these folks didn't have her back! It is fun to watch her fumble through but ya worry about the girl a lot!
The romance takes a slight turn with the love triangle, this feels very familiar. I liked Addison and Nick in the first book and really wanted them to have progressed the relationship in this book. But his control issues are a touch annoying, sure she is clueless at the job, but ya gotta let her fly. I kind of think Savage is a better fit for her, he lets her have her head while keeping tabs from a distance.
The mystery is more focused this time around, not all those pesky red herrings. There are still side cases but they don't get in the way as much. The pacing is great and everything flows. I hope things get a little more complex as the series progresses, but it is also great that things stay pretty light.
The book is all first person, which I don't mind so much in audiobooks. Somehow it makes the read feel more dynamic. Addison is such a fun character that you can't help but fall into her schemes.
I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Connie Ventress, who has a delicious Southern accent. She makes everything blend together, the quirkiness of Addison and the energy of the small town really come through. The pace is brisk, I like things quicker, so I speed the read up a notch. It is a fabulous pairing of book and narrator. She has a sweet and soothing tone, just enough depth to the Southern to make it smooth.
Overall, it is a very entertaining read, quirky and fun while keeping the mystery moving. This is one of those series you either love or hate, I am firmly in love. Sure there are flaws but it is just so charismatic I can't hope but overlook them.
The book starts off right in the middle of things and then jumps back a bit to catch the reader up on events. It is definitely a great way to hook the audience from the get go.
Addison is a bit like Stephanie Plum, she falls into detective work and lucks into solving things. She is far more inept and scatterbrained to actually be a detective in my mind. She is not as bright as one would hope a history teacher would be, many clues get dropped but she misses them. Still she manages to be charismatic and engaging.
The mystery is all over the place, much like the heroine. There are many red herrings to take things off course. The mind spins at moments, maybe a few too many cases going on at one time. It tends to muddy things up for the main mystery. I had a bead on the culprit but the tricky twist through me off for a second. Definitely keeps you on your toes.
The romance is a nice diversion, Addison and Nick have a great chemistry. Things are more sexual tension than full on bedroom action. Things get into heavy petting and hot kisses but the bedroom stays empty. Sigh, such a tease, but I figure things will spice up in the next book.
This is first person, it is easier to handle in audio than straight reading. Addison has a very interesting POV, she really is flighty. Her quirkiness adds to the fun feel of the read, nothing too heavy. Her ice cream obsession is delightful!
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Connie Ventress, she does a wonderful job. As the main character is Southern she has a think accent. The accent is great, reminds me of my youth in the south. It really enhances the story and makes it sing. She has a fantastic pace in the read, it moves along, flowing beautifully. I can not wait to hear more of her in this series and elsewhere.
Overall, this is a fun read that keeps you enthralled from beginning to the end. It isn't perfect but it is always entertaining. I am definitely intrigued by where this series is headed. I am ready to jump straight into the next book!
Great tween read for boys and girls, very creative and fun reading. I love that the characters are not your typical polished girls. They are very mature for their ages but have moments of angst.
Really great and imaginative series, love paranormal ghosties! The books have a great flow, they are perfect for middle readers. The story always moves at a steady pace and gives you everything you need to solve the mystery. This is great for junior sleuths out there.
Kat and Jac have a great friendship, they have rocky moments like anybody, but they work things out. It really is a great model for kids who have best friends and how to deal with issues. I love the way grown ups explain things without talking down to the kids. They also try to let them work things out on their own.
We do come into a few boy issues in this book. Thankfully it isn't heavy on the crushing. But I will warn any boys the feelings start to get a little gushy every now and again.
I am very happy we are finally addressing the darker spirits Kat keeps encountering. It has been annoying to see them mentioned in earlier books and never resolved. I am hoping the next book takes things back to the school and that dark entity. While it gets a little scary with the ghosts, it never travels to full on horror.
I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Allyson Ryan, who is terrific. She has a real feel for the quirky nature of the characters and it comes through in the voices. She makes great choices in the speed and energy of the read. There could be a little more diversity in the types of voices, a little more distinct would be nice. I really like her style and love the way she compliments this series.
Overall this is a great book, as an adult I was entertained, so I am sure kids will love this. Great pace and fabulous characters. Might not be for folks who are against New Age Philosophies.

This is a really sweet reunited lover tale. It has a real sense of strength in the main character. Such a heartwarming read.
Savannah is an intriguing character. She starts off as a naive young girl and then we jump ahead to six years latter. Big changes in six years, she is now an independent woman coming home. I loved her growth and change from the beginning of the book. She really does work for her change.
Daniel runs hot and cold for me. Sure he has trust issues, but boy does he hold a grudge. In the end I warmed up to him, but it was a journey.
The supporting cast was super fun, especially Miss Ida. They really round out the story and make it feel like a sweet hometown romance.
The bedroom door is firmly closed. They have some steamy thoughts and hot kisses, but the smexy stuff stays off limits. It is a sweet romance with hints of spice.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Laura Jennings, who is lovely. She does a great job with the characters and keeps the accents light. She has a great pace that moves along with the story. Very soothing tone. I loved her paired with this book and will definitely look for more of her reads.
Overall, this was a really sweet read, I like a sappy romance every now and again. Nothing too deep but very satisfying in the end. I am becoming a fan of Ms Fasano's style. Sometimes you want a nice and easy romance without tons of drama. This really hit the spot!
