Early Review: Immortal Hunter by Kait Ballenger

Early Review: Immortal Hunter by Kait Ballenger

Born with a special ability, David Aronowitz works for a secret organization known as the Execution Underground, that regulates all things supernatural. David is the EU’s resident exorcist and spends his nights sending demons back to hell and thinking of the woman he loved […]

Review: Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

Anne Bishop continues to amaze me…I can’t get enough of this dark and enthralling paranormal world! I honestly think this is the first time I’ve used the “rocked my world” icon on a review and if any review deserves it it’s MURDER OF CROWS! I completely apologize in advance for any ranting and raving I do in this review and acting like a teenage fangirl. The Others series has managed to make me step out of my reading comfort zone […]

Review: Written in Red by Anne Bishop

Anne Bishop delivers a hauntingly beautiful reading experience with WRITTEN IN RED! WRITTEN IN RED is unlike any paranormal world I’ve read…in a good way! Last month I joined a month-long group reading challenge on Goodreads (League of Lusty Ladies) titled “Pick it for Me” where group members are paired up and recommend at least three books for you to read. One of my recommendations was WRITTEN IN RED. It went from my wish list to my TBR list and […]

An action packed sexy read with a cliffhanger ending that left me shouting! A WICKED HUNGER is a thrill ride from start to finish that will keep you guessing.

Review: Wounded by Jasinda Wilder

Two beautifully broken characters I couldn’t get enough of! WOUNDED is an unexpected emotional story that left me a total mess. It takes place in Iraq during Desert Storm and introduces us to two very different characters, Rania and Hunter. After her family is killed and her younger brother enlists in the Iraqi Army, Rania has resorted to prostitution in order to survive in a country devastated by war. Hunter is and American soldier on his last tour when his […]


Review: A Single Girl’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse by JT Clay

Review: A Single Girl’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse by JT Clay

An unexpected twist to the zombie apocalypse! When I saw the title and cover for this book I thought “I must read this!” and requested a copy on NetGalley. I’m all about zombie books since getting hooked on The Walking Dead so this was pretty much a no brainer (no pun intended!). Needless to say, what began as a promising zombie read soon turned into a horror comedy I wasn’t prepared for that left me saying WTF?! Literally. Quentin, known […]

Review: Repossessed by Shawntelle Madison

Her job is no easy feat, her clients are beyond demanding and their late payments are putting her business in danger of failing.

Review: Donners of the Dead by Karina Halle

Review: Donners of the Dead by Karina Halle

Pioneer life meets The Walking Dead! DONNERS OF THE DEAD weaves history with the supernatural for a nail biting thrill ride! I love that Karina Halle ventures back in time with her zombies, instead of setting the story in the usual post apocalyptic world. Life is already harsh in 1851 and throwing in the undead raises the stakes at a chance of survival! Our protagonist Eve is a bright, young woman who has been dealt a bad hand in life […]


Early Mini Review: Grimm Consequences by Kate SeRine

Early Mini Review: Grimm Consequences by Kate SeRine

Nate made me love him more (didn’t think it was possible) with his POV in GRIMM CONSEQUENCES! GRIMM CONSEQUENCES takes place shortly after the first book in the series, RED and gives us a glimpse into Nate Grimm’s past and his relationship with Tess (Red). We learn more about his character, including his life as a Reaper and the sacrifices he’s made and continues to make out of love for Tess. I usually expect the male POV to be a bit […]

Review: Red by Kate SeRine

I could not ask for more in a book…Kate SeRine rocked my fairy tale world with RED! Our story begins with Tess “Red” Little (Little Red Riding Hood) introducing us to her fascinating world. A wronged spelled has allowed all of the make believe characters in storybooks (known as Tales) cross over into the Ordinaries (human) population. Living in Chicago, Red works as an Enforcer for the Fairytale Management Authority who handle fairytale crimes and police any threats that can […]


Review: A Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Review: A Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson

An interesting story that fell flat with its irritating leading lady… I have to admit that I was initially drawn to its catchy title being a native New Yorker and all. The cover suggests a fun and flirty read and that’s exactly what I was prepping myself for when I started listening to it on audio. The audiobook started off ok, it always takes me a couple of chapters to get familiar with a new narrator but around chapter 4 […]

Review: Bitter Spirits by Jenn Bennett

A sexy throwback supernatural adventure! I was already a total fan of Jenn Bennett’s writing when I picked up BITTER SPIRITS, her Arcadia Bell series holds a special place in my heart. I didn’t expect to fall in love so quickly with a new set of characters but that’s the beauty of her story telling…it only gets better! Aida Palmer is a spirit medium who can summon the dead and help them cross over. She earns a living by using […]
