Finally, something new in the world of vampires, witches and werewolves. The creation of a new creature, A NULL! What a great concept, someone who can nullify magic, made this a very interesting and intriguing story. I totally got this story and can’t wait for the next book, the ending was terrific, a wonder of wonder cliff hanger.
My favorite character of course is Jesse, who knows when to keep his mouth shut and to accept things for what they are. My least favorite character is Molly, who is Scarletts roommate and Dash’s spy.
Now for the narrator, in my humble opinion she did a fantastic job. Her characterizations were spot on and she did well with Jesses’ Latino accent that is common to Angelinos, yes their accents are different from other Latinos.
Should you spend a credit for this one? YES!! I just hope the second book in the series is as well written as this one.
I loved the hero in this story, however the heroine was very hard to warm up to. She was one of those ditzy women who kept doing very dumb things. I also did not care for all of the angst we were put through regarding her widowhood. I know losing a husband and child was very traumatic for her but it had been three years. I don't know if she had ever had grief counseling or not but it would not have hurt.
The plot was good, although I figured it out who the killer was.
This is the start of a series, and the family members sound interesting especially Ian, which was a lose end that wasn't taken care of.
Of course Johanna Parker did a great job as always.
OK this is a British written book. This book is written in the style of a Sophie Kinsella book, however it misses it mark on so many fronts. There were some moments that were meant to be funny but just didn't quite do it. This is a story of a girl who is dumped by her boyfriend but he refuses to give her a reason as to the "time out." So begins her quest to change herself along with her two friends a gay male and her BFF. This is where the list making comes into play. She immediately makes a list of things to do to make herself not boring. If you need something light to read and want to follow a 28 year olds journey to self discovery, then by all means pick this one.
I enjoyed this book. The comeuppance for the bad guys was enjoyable. However, the ending was even better. The characters were well developed and likeable, even Debbie. An easy read, some action, some romance, minor sex scenes everything to keep you interested.
Narrator was pretty good.
The hero in this story was a total jerk. He lied to Lisa, found that she was naive, took her virginity and kept her away from others. When she found out who he really was, he reluctantly invited her to the dance he was giving at his ranch. His distrust of Lisa was misplaced and he knew it but couldn't admit it to himself. Sure he was redeemed at the end but I would have had a hard time forgiving him.
This book had an excellent premise, however, it was spoiled by too many explicit sex scenes and not enough development of the theft of the firms money. It could have been so much better if the story line had been developed along those lines, instead it gets bogged down in over the top sex scenes. Not worth a credit unless you are looking for hot smexy scenes.
To be honest this story is very short, I felt it could have been fleshed out a bit more. However, the story was great, the H/h were likeable and not dumb. Cole is an immortal, who was a foundling by the Fae, raised and trained by them, he became a member of the Shields. The job of the Shields is to fight The Evil. Shannon is a modern woman who has been bought to this particular time and place for a purpose. Naturally Cole is drawn to her, something he can't explain won't let him leave her.
Worth a credit? Yes!! Really a good story. The narrator was pretty good. Women voices needed a like work.
I was eagerly awaiting this book, and I am so disappointed. It just drags on and on. The only time it got interesting was whenever Seth appeared the rest was a snooze fest. Not much action and having Ethan linked with Mallory was pure boredom. Don't waste your time on this one, not up to the parr of the others.
This story was better than I expected. Dakota was a resilient heroine, determined to make changes in her life, to stop making the same mistakes with regards to men. She kicks out her married lover, rids her apartment of everything to do with him, in the process she finds a flash drive attached to her computer, thinking it might be important to him, (he is the chief of police) she drops it in her purse and hops a plane to Memphis. Meanwhile back in New Hampshire the Chief gets a phone call and realizes he needs the flash drive, he finally remembers where he left it and the chase is on. This was a very good story, short but interesting. Worth a read.
After the dismal previous book, I took a chance and got this one and have no regrets. Brooke Parker is the legal counsel for a restaurant company, and the US attorney needs her help. Being a smart business woman, Brooke agrees to play ball. The chemistry between her and Cade, the US attorney, is undeniable. Of course things don't go as they plan, the twists and turns adds to the fun.
I enjoyed this one, definitely worth a credit.
The ending in this story blew me away! Patty O'Shay is the heroine in this story. This is a murder mystery, that grabbed my attention from the first few pages. The setting is New Orleans, post Katrina. The author painted the city well, I grew up in New Orleans, and it felt like visiting some old friends and to know they survived Katrina, however it seems that evil survived as well. The heroine's husband was killed in post Katrina chaos, and it appears he was a victim of the person who was killing the women and removing their right hand. Thus the killer was dubbed "The Handyman."
This was a complex story, and very detailed. I enjoyed it and hope you do so as well.
