    Vampire bachelor Samson can't get it up anymore. Not even his shrink can help him. That changes when the lovely mortal auditor Delilah tumbles into his arms after a seemingly random attack. Suddenly there's nothing wrong with his hydraulics - that is, as long as Delilah is the woman in his arms. His scruples about taking Delilah to bed vanish when his shrink suggests it's the only way to cure his problem. Thinking all he needs is one night with her, Samson indulges in a night of pleasure and passion.

    Story

    This is a great opening to a new series. It was the reviews that finally persuaded me to get this book. And for once the reviewers were right. The story is well paced and the premise is right on target. Don't let the descriptive stop you from enjoying this well written vampire story. Think of a vampire story between the BDB and Molly Harpers crew. There are great characters that are introduced for the author to build on. And Kevin Foley does a good job with the narration. I can't wait for the next installment.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

More interesting characters are introduced which has you thinking what ‘s next. You finally start to feel the fire between Vlad and Leila. A sexy strong alpha male who finally has to work a little for the woman he loves.
    Yes get it if you liked book 1. I for one am looking forward to book 3.

    The second spin off from the Cat and Bones series. What I enjoyed most about this book is Kira and how she handles one of the most power vampires within this paranormal world. What comes out of this book is a wonderful love story. The ending is a little lame but still the overbook is worth read.

    A spin off from the Cat and bones series this one doesn’t disappoint. IF you enjoyed meeting both Spade and Denise from the previous series. Then you will most likely enjoy this romantic sexy and strange tale. There is romance humor action and adventure that makes this one an interesting listen from beginning to end.

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

    I realize some relationships have their ups and downs but for Cat and Bones, I found myself in this one saying come on. Enough is enough. I mean really don’t these two deserve a break. Which I suppose that is what J Frost wants us to feel? Frustration and exhilaration. Again if you enjoy this couple and all the characters in their world then this is another good installment.

    Since half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her undead lover Bones met six years ago, they’ve fought against the rogue undead, battled a vengeful Master vampire, and pledged their devotion with a blood bond. Now it’s time for a vacation. But their hopes for a perfect Paris holiday are dashed when Cat awakes one night in terror. She’s having visions of a vampire named Gregor, who’s more powerful than Bones and has ties to her past that even Cat herself didn’t know about.

    What can I say if you didn’t like the first three books then don’t bother? But if you have become a fan of the crazy ongoing relationship of Cat and Bones then climb on board for the ride. Because a ride you’ll get. This book comes down to choices for Cat and Bones and with any stormy relationship with fiery personalities there are all of those outside challenges and influences that make that choice more intense.
    Yes this worth a credit

    This second installment doesn’t fail but actually exceeds expectations. Just when book one left you with “I can’t believe it” book 2 starts you off with come on I know something is going to happen. And of course it does with Bones coming back full force back into Cats life. And this he is playing for keeps. Cat has many decisions to make but Bones is definitely her man. Hot sexy scenes take up into intense relationship that is the core of Cat and Bones. This series is full of adventure and plenty of action that has wanting to know what is next. Yes yes yes use a credit or buy it is worth it.

    This is one of the best starts to an awesome paranormal romantic action filled series. Cat is a tough as nails heroine and Bones is bad with a heart of gold.

The heated relationship between Cat and Bones relationship is full of challenges and danger but beyond that we are taken into a different vampiric world with twist and turns that leave you wanting more. Yes this is definitely worth a credit.

    A West Virginia mountain, the middle of a blizzard, killers on his trail... no place for a city boy like Lucky Cavanaugh, an ATF explosives specialist. Out-manned, outgunned and shot, he takes Forest Service Wildlife Biologist Vinnie Ryan hostage until he convinces her that he's one of the good guys.

    Book 2 brings more to the table. But it just doesn’t really do it for me. The trek through the VA mountains in the middle of blizzard is drawn out and to me lacks the emotionally drama that the elements would definitely cause. Basically it was more of boy I really like you but I am afraid to tell you. And I won’t trust anyone because my husband was shot in the line of fire. And then there are just stupid things that happen like, oh the bad guys are after us but let me stay in town and get captured.
    What is disappointing is I like the characters Ryan and Vinnie but I didn’t like how the story developed. The premise of the story was there, it just needed I guess better editing?? Still hanging in with the series because I am interested in the potential story of the leader of this covert group Rose. I hope the author goes for it with all the grit and passion this serious has the potential to reach.

    Going undercover, playing the part of a disgraced former Marine, is easy for Chase Westin - until a Christmas Eve mission takes him back to his hometown and face to face with his estranged brother. When KC, an undercover FBI agent, flies into Chase's life with her Doc Martens, purple, punk-rock hair, and Hollywood-hype leather and chains, Chase realizes that falling in love is more dangerous than catching bullets.

    Story

    This is potentially a good start to action romance series. But then it falls just short of the mark. The two main characters instance attraction might be the problem. I would have liked to have had a slower and more intense build to their romance. There was potential to keep us on the edge but the romance seemed to be rushed. I like the strong female lead KC and Chase as the alpha male in pursuit. Maybe it is the development of the bad guys that would have helped. But there is potential. And the supporting characters are definitely intriguing. If the book is on sale it is worth a listen. Let’s hope the author can provide more depth to the next book. Compared to KGI series by Maya Banks this one is a little lukewarm.
