Mini Review: Diary of a Narcissistic Bloodsucker by Lynda Hilburn

Mini Review: Diary of a Narcissistic Bloodsucker by Lynda Hilburn

This was a fun and sexy glimpse into the world of a sensual female vampire! I was hooked on this novella from page one and mourned the ending. Zara is a great heroine who knows who she is and does not apologizes for it. She’s smart, sexy, quite often arrogant in her narration, but you just can’t seem to hate her! Her charisma and great sense of humor brings a lightness to the usual “woe is me” vampire tale. Diary […]

Review: Like Clockwork by Bonnie Dee

This is my second time reading a steampunk novel and I must say I enjoyed every page, I have found a new genre to love! The combination of the Victorian era with science, adventure, mystery and romance make this a very versatile and likable genre. The novella style is a great introduction to newcomers of steampunk, it delivers a thrilling story without being overwhelming. Victoria is a smart and independent woman who has broken all the rules in society to […]

Review: American Vampire by Jennifer Armintrout

Not what I expected…in a good way! I was quite surprised when I started reading this book and found myself transported into a world similar to the great eerie tales of the master of horror, Stephen King. This is definitely not your typical vampire story. It’s dark and full of mystery and suspense until the very end. When Graf makes a pit stop in the town of Penance, Ohio, he’s hoping to get a quick bite from one of the […]


Review: The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

Review: The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter

I was hooked from the first sentence! This one would have been an all-nighter if I didn’t need sleep! The tortured hero has met his match with Maddox and his Lords of the Underworld! I have a soft spot for tortured heroes and have to admit Maddox might be the most tortured hero I’ve met. Maddox and his brothers in arms have been cursed for most of their existence since opening Pandora’s box. They are the Lords of the Underworld […]

Review: Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh

Elena and Raphael are truly a match made in heaven! Their relationship is really explored this time around and you get to see how much these two warriors have changed in the name of love. I couldn’t get enough of their passionate love scenes! Being a newly made angel, Elena’s vulnerability and need for constant vigilance from Raphael’s Seven was a bit frustrating for me. I miss the warrior heroine I grew to love in Angel’s Blood and sometimes feel […]

Review: Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning

A climactic finale to an unbelievable series! I was left heartbroken at the end of Dreamfever but Karen Marie Moning totally redeemed herself from her usual jaw-dropping cliffhangers with this one! Shadowfever is an emotional and thrilling ride I did not want to end! We finally learn more about Mac’s origin and the long awaited truth about her sister Alina’s death. There’s one revelation after another, some which are heart wrenching and others which are just totally unexpected and shocking! […]

Here’s a little bit about me…  I’m a NYC girl who loves to read in my spare time I’ve had a fascination with vampires and the supernatural since […]
