This book was recommended to me and as a fan of Elle Kennedy’s Killer Instinct series, I was happy to give it a try. It was an enjoyable new adult story, but it took me awhile to come to like these characters. This is not my favorite new adult book but still much better than many of the standard tropes on the new adult shelf.
The final (?) story of the Sin Brothers series was certainly exciting. It was full of chase scenes, fights, gun fire and daring escapes. I’m sorry to see the end of these devoted brothers. The ending will be satisfying yet leaves a little wiggle room if Rebecca decides to toss in a follow up novel or novella to tie up some loose ends.
I am giving this story 3 stars with a caveat. This was a hard book to get through since author Shelley Laurenston is using a lesser known Pantheon, Norse Mythology, as the basis for her story. There was too much set up and yet not enough, and not enough focus on the two main characters. Lot of interesting characters were introduced but it feels like it will take several books to really get into this series.
Taken by a Dragon was definitely my favorite out of this series so far. With it’s “stranded together” premise, Loke and Anais have time to get to know each other and build a relationship. There is plenty of action before and after the get to know you’s to keep it exciting.
Of the books in this series that I have read, this is the shortest and my least favorite. Here was a case of insta-love and I just didn’t feel it with these two. Series-wise, we definitely could have skipped this one since the characters are unremarkable and it really didn’t do much to forward to series storyline.
This is the last book (for now) from Celia’s POV and author Cecy Robson doesn’t send her off with a party. Evil is still chasing after Celia in all its forms and kicking her butt at every turn. Can Celia hold out long enough to survive and finally get her happily ever after?
I have been looking forward to this book since the teasers about Charlie and T-Rex in Rock Addiction. Although the story was good and Gabriel Bishop was patient and sweet, Charlotte’s PTSD is so strong that the heat index on this story flatlined. Nalini Singh tried to make up for it with daydreams and dirty talk, but panic attacks stilted almost all of the love scenes.
Utterly disappointed. All the things I started out liking the most about this series started becoming annoying as there was no character growth. Each story works to keep Mattie and Hurley apart and each time it seems more contrived. This is definitely my last Mattie Winston mystery.
I was pleasantly surprised to find myself enjoying this story. After Book #1, I thought Raina would end up back together with Miah, but the polished and snobby Duncan hid a damaged psyche and his underlying insecurities made him more human and I enjoyed his damaged character a great deal.
Charles and Anna have been together three years and their relationship has grown and solidified. In Dead Heat, they visit an old friend of Charles which will address the problems associated with being a supernatural and loving someone who is human. Dead Heat will also bring about some changes to their relationship and I am looking forward to seeing how those will be addressed.
