Taken by Him: A Billionaire’s Club Story Red Garnier.

 

Taken by Him: A Billionaire's Club Story (The Billionaire's Club)

ARC supplied by Netgalley.

The Billionaire’s Club is a series new to me and although there’s already one book out each are stand alone so it was no problem to read this not having read book one. The books share characters and this one is about one of the members, Luke Preston. Playboy Luke has been shot by a jealous lover, and the police have yet to capture him so his friends persuade him to lay low for a while and take a sex break. Unheard of for Luke but he agrees after some persuasion on their part. They’ve been friends along time and he knows they have his best interest at heart.

However only a short while into his break on a secluded Cancun resort he sees Peyton, and his attraction is immeadiate…and Peyton is there hoping for a fling to shake off some of the staidness her life has become.

I liked both characters, really felt for Peyton with her determination to let go and yet still she felt afraid of what she was doing. Once she took the plunge though she was a wildcat and it was great to feel her grown in confidence. Luke took a bit of time to warm to – he started as a typical arrogant, selfish manwhore – “they all know the score so..” is his feelings about his love them and leave them lifestyle. He doesn’t care if the ladies end up broken hearted as he feels he’s given fair warning. Well of course this time the boot is on the oter foot. The novel is quite short at just 112 pages so of necessity the action takes place over the first few days then a gap of a few weeks and another few days interaction. In a short novel such as this it works well rather than trying to cover too long a time span and lose the essence of the book.

Its hot and steamy, with smouldering sex scenes. The attraction between Luke and Peyton is instant on both sides and the sexual tension leaps of the page until she says “yes” – then its all action and non stop sex for the couple. Inevitably the stay comes to an end and they go their seaprate ways and thats when Luke discovers this time he’s at the other end and what is he going to do about it?

Its a great fun romance with a HEA – well written and edited and packed with emotion. The scenes are very realistic and I felt that the couple could easily be real, the settings and the action blended so easily.

I’m not really a novella fan, but I did enjoy this and for a quick easy read to make you feel good and brighten your mood this is just perfect. It doesn’t have great drama, no deep dark plots as its not got the length, and Red sensibility focusses on what will work best – a simple, emotive, erotic love story.

Priced at £1.98 for 112 pages it’s at the upper end of my personal VFM scale but for those who love to re-read a short, steamy romance it’s better value of course. Horses for courses and all that….

 

Stars: four – great fun, hot read but a one off for me.

 

Bad Mouth Angela Mccallister.

 

ARC supplied by publisher.

I love a good vampire romance and this one was no exception. So many romances are jut a light, brief plot carrying the romance, but here Angela has given us a decent storyline and fantastic cast of charters that could (IMO) continue into a series. Val is definitely anti vampire when we first meet her, thanks to her ex husband but the delicious sexy vampire Kade, obnoxious and rude though he is, soon changes her mind. Funnily enough he’s been ordered by his superiors to work with her, a human investigator for the Vampire Liaison Organisation, knowing that he also hates humans. A match definitely not made in heaven 🙂 Its really interesting the way Angela shows us via these two people how wrong it is to pre judge, to take things at face value rather than looking for the facts behind them, and as the truth slowly emerges the affect is has on Kade and Val is astonishing. I really enjoyed the way this part worked out and they learned the need to trust in each other, and not just act on their attraction to each other but to listen and understand the other person and their motives. There’s some terrific, steamy, sexy interludes between them – and their romance is one step forward two steps back all the way it seems. I like all of that, I don’t want everything to run smoothly but for there to be problems, blocks in the way, puzzles to work out.

The romance side of this book is great but the story carrying it was very good too, and it took some working out just who was moving the pieces behind the scenes. Loyalties were tested, and both Val and Kade were in for some big surprises.

As I said earlier Kade and Val were terrific characters, both very definite in their views about the other people around, and both were very strong minded. Val wasn’t going to curl up and be simpering and meek (once she found her voise at their first meeting!), even though Kade was drop dead gorgeous vampire prince and Kade, he wasn’t lying down to take any orders from a human! Even one as sharp and attractive as Val. Sparks flew as you’d expect and it made for an outstanding story, that kept me guessing what was going to happen right to the end. The others in the cast were interesting too and I think the main characters would transfer easily to further novels in the world Angela has created. I don’t know if that’s the plan, but I hope so as I’d love to read more from this group of characters.

As always from Entangled Publishing excellent editing and quality of writing, and at 180 pages for £2.63 its around normal pricing. It’s strong enough to bear a re read and that adds to the value for money for me, and its one to join the keepers file.

Stars: I love long novels and feel this has such a strong story and group of people that it could have been longer and I’d have given it five stars then but as it is for me personally its a four and half star read.

Author Information

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Almost every author’s bio states they’ve been writing since they learned how to read. It’s what they’ve always wanted to do. Well, my journey wasn’t so straight and narrow. I was a nurse for over twenty years and hold a bachelor’s degree in science with a major in biology. So as you can see, my career path had originally gone in the opposite direction. I didn’t discover my passion for the craft until after I’d had my son and decided to work part-time.

 

I’ve always loved to read but had never read a paranormal romance. Then one night at work on break, I began reading Karen Marie Moning’s Spell of the Highlander. I couldn’t believe what I’d been missing, and I immediately fell in love with the genre.

 

I wanted to write like that. I wanted to create worlds where others could find the same escape and fascination I did when I read my first sensual paranormal romance.

 

And I hope that’s what I’ve accomplished in my work. Please dive in, hold on tight, and enjoy the adventure. Just be careful in the dark—you might find more than you expected waiting for you there.

Don’t bite the Bridesmaid Tiffany Allee.

 

 

 

 

 

I love a good romance and to add a vampire edge to it – well that sounded fun. Sometimes you want to read something deep and engrossing, sometimes you just want something light and humorous to relax your mind. Don’t Bit the bridesmaid is perfect for that.

I really took to Alice – her penchant for bracing her courage with Appletinis, her way of seeing the best in everything and everyone, and her loyalty to her family. Then there’s Noah…hottie neighbour who sends Alice into a sort of mind jello stupor when she sees him. This time she needs his help – the description covers why – and of course as always things do not go smoothly.

Noah is lovely, a real gentleman but he;’s a vampire – and the scent of Alice is driving him crazy and making him work to keep control of his behaviour. That’s something he’s unused to having to do as a two hundred year old vampire. Of course having persuaded him on the cruise celebrating her sister’s wedding, aided by the fact he needs to hide for a week, Alice omits to tell him they’ll be sharing a room. That’s goes down well, Noah is struggling but can’t tell Alice why, and of course she thinks its because he doesn’t want to get that close to her in case she’s going to jump him. That doesn’t help her low self esteem.

The cruise goes on, and its full of things that test Noah, Alice desperately wants to show her ex Brent, who’s the best man, that she’s moved on. She and Noah get closer and the obnoxious Brent keeps hanging round her much to Noah’s irritation. Noah tells himself its only for a week and that he can go back to normal with Alice but slowly he realises its not going to be that easy.

Alice mum Edna is a terrific lady, full of fun and joie de vivre, and is accompanied by her current much younger boyfriend. Cindy the sister getting married loves Alice and knows who Noah really is but is keeping the secret – she hated Brent. Brent – he’s the nasty every good romance needs. He sneers and belittles Alice, then apologises and tries to get round her. Its all wrapped up with big doses of humour and cheer, some steamy hot sex and lots of love. Lasagne – I’ll always think of Noah and Alice now when I have that! Great kitchen scene….

 

Its a real fun read, light-hearted and full of humour and a lovely HEA though not without some drama first. Its not an in-depth, heavy read but one for when you want to feel good and happy after enjoying a few hours break from real life.

Well written and edited, and priced at £2.63 for around 209 pages its fairly priced and for lovers of humours romance with a HEA its perfect.

 

Stars: four and a half, just not quite a five for me.

Lord Malachi (House of DeDe) Sharon Mamaolo

Lord Malachi (House of DeDe)

My reviews are genuine whether I bought book or received it as an ARC, I don’t gush and give false praise – I don’t believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book.

A Lady of the Realm was one of the first books I reviewed and I was instantly hooked into the series. I love the world Sharon has created, full of witches, fairies (not with pretty wings and six inches high but some tough characters..) Elves ( same for them – no sweet tiny helpful creatures but some scheming manipulative people), vampires, werewolves and demons. None are really stereotypical and they balance really well in Sharon’s world. This is book four – initially I was a bit disappointed – I love Malachi, who wouldn’t? But was hoping to pick up from where the last book left off. This takes us right back to the start of the boys meeting – a prequel to Lady of the Realm if you like although as it contains elements from later stories where it brings us up to date it couldn’t have worked as book one. Its a great book itself , just my wanting to know where and whets happening with Beth right from start that got me feeling a bit lost. Expectations and all they – but book five hopefully later this year will bring that and I’ll be eagerly waiting 🙂

It was fascinating picking up from the early days and seeing what the “boys” were like then, and seeing some of the events happening that shaped their later behaviours. Sasha is still the same erratic manic person but harder I feel than when he has Beth to temper him in later books – even though she’s often the cause of his problems. I liked seeing the young Maria too – and finding out why Sasha married. Malachi was pretty much the same as I see him now – very intelligent, always on the ball and definitely out to give anything to protect Sasha.

As always Sharon’s writing is riveting and in the first book I noted the overuse of apostrophes – that’s all long gone and these later books are far more polished. Its been good to see how Sharon’s writing had developed – more finesse and yet still the same raw, gritty storyline with real people who are tough, bitchy (Beth – definitely Beth!! ) manipulative and yet lovable. (not cuddly loveable but emotive love) Its been good to read about how it all started and what happened from a POV other than Beth and to see if what I thought was going on was what actually happened – two sides to all stories and all that…its given me a greater understanding of much of the boys actions where it went over my head quite often before.

Sharon does bring us up to date towards the end, and a brief glimpse of the next book – whetting my appetite for more from the Realm…hope you get a quiet life this year Sharon and plenty of writing tine : ) as I’m keen for more to feed my fix!

Stars: four and half – only because of my expectation of what it was going to be, not because the writing isn’t up to scratch. Like I said I can see why it wasn’t released earlier but I need (OK wanted…) more of the story as it is now. I’m just a terribly impatient person 😦 and when I’m lost in another world as I ma here I just want to know more of the story. At £1.94 for 198 pages is a good price because its definitely one for my keepers file to be read over again. I love to read a complete series once all books are out and with good writing there’s always bits the reader has missed that get picked up second and subsequent readings I’ve found.

Take it Like a Vamp. Candace Havens

 

ARC supplied by Netgalley.

Sometimes you want a solid, in depth read, and then sometimes some humour and romance is what you need.That’s how I felt after finishing a fantasy trilogy recently, so Take it Like a Vamp was just perfect. Candace is an author new to me but the book description sounded fun and as I found out it was spot on. A cast of great characters, Aunt Teddy (formerly Uncle Teddy!) who lent Casey her apartment while she was abroad, Casey – who’s so much like most of us, always feeling a bit overshadowed by the “beautiful” people and worrying about our weight and appearance. Nick, ah delicious Nick, Casey’s friend and neighbour, and object of her inner crush. Casey thinks he’s one of the “beautiful” and wouldn’t look twice at her and is (reasonably) content to enjoy his friendship and dream about him in secret. Nick, he’s secretly in love with Casey, though he hasn’t realised yet its more than simple lust on his part. He promised Aunt Teddy he’d look after Casey and tries to keep his feelings back, not wanting to bring her into his dangerous and deadly world. The humour when Nick is faced with situations such as Casey’s towel drop, or when she’s sensually sucking on food! It’s just great and really brought out the smiles. He’s rushing back to hide his fangs and “other” obvious give-aways, and Casey thinks he’s rushing away as she’s embarrassed him for other reasons. That’s how the scene goes until the fateful evening Nick decides to take her to an evening event he has to attend. After his supernatural pals have finished primping and dressing Casey he feels the attraction more than ever – and feels incredibly jealous when its clear others feel that way too. Then Casey meets The Chipmunk – having grand-kids who adore Alvin this made me laugh straight away! Alvina can see Nick is very taken with Casey, and the green eyed monster creeps in. There follows tales of death threats, destruction, demon attacks, along with trips abroad to meet other people, and a most gorgeous Greek retreat….

A fabulous cast of characters as I’ve said, a story that flips from danger to humour very quickly, and a real romantic, sexual tension novel. There isn’t in-your-face sex, but lots of attraction that simmers and steams on the pages (well…epages anyway!) Who wouldn’t love Nick, the man looks like a god, has such a gentle loving nature along with an incredibly protective streak, able to pull out all the danger stops when necessary and rich too! And Casey just finds it so hard to believe that someone like this can fall in love with someone like her. She doesn’t see herself as Nick and many others do.

A great story, thoroughly enjoyed and just what I needed after a solid read, something romantic, humorous and light-hearted that didn’t need intense concentration. Its the sort of novel you can put down and pick up later – if you’re the sort of person who can do that of course, I’m not! and devoured this in one afternoon’s read.

Well edited and written, decent value at £2.36 for 174 pages, and one I’d happily read again when I want something light to entertain my brain.

Stars: not quite five but close, a solid four and a half.

 

Unbound. Dale Mayer.

 

 

 

ARC supplied by Netgalley.

 

I’ve read and really enjoyed some of Dale’s paranormal novels, and thought I’d see how the transition to a non paranormal work went. I hadn’t read the excerpt about it being a new genre for Dale but its very accurate as when I was reading this book I felt unsure whether it was a romance with thriller elements or a thriller with romantic elements. I felt it didn’t really work that well for me, as I’d have preferred a slant more to one way or the other. With it being so clearly balanced between two genres I was waiting for the romance to start, but it seemed very, very slow burn and even when Karina and Brian did get together there didn’t seem any passion between them, just a steady burn romance. Maybe I’ve been reading too much romance and the slow steady stuff just isn’t for me? Then there’s the Thriller element. I felt either the police were spectacularly inept, or Ian had become very professional very quickly as he didn’t seem to have any previous history in the criminal world…

 

Anyway that’s my crits – now for what I did like. As ever Dale’s characters are really well rounded and feel genuine. I loved the way Karina had such passion with Brian when they were at uni – its a shame IMO that Brian became so …uptight? Staid? I guess his experiences had led him to that but I’d have loved it if his feelings for Karina were let loose a little more. Still, life changes us all doesn’t it and clearly Dale saw Brian’s life experience making him this way. Karina – that memory of the night with Brian had shaped so much of her life too – and obviously when meeting him again she still felt the same towards him. I felt for her so much, she seemed to be putting in so much work into their relationship, where Brain was so slow and cautious. I’m glad she persevered. Then there’s her friends – a great group of people and a huge support when she needed them. Ian – what can I say about him? He seemed to have a screw lose from the start, and I enjoyed the way Dale shows us just how much psychological damage a breakup can do. The only fault I have with the thriller element was as I said – Ian going from a seeming normal law abiding man to a very clever manipulator. I found that hard to believe, and would have enjoyed the thriller element more if I didn’t keep thinking “ how did he know how to…” given that we haven’t been told of any previous history in that field. I just feel the police would have walked all over someone inexperienced, and of course the novel needed him to fool everyone. Apart from that the thriller element balanced really well for me, with a slow build of tension working up to a life threatening finale. I did enjoy the psychological element – I like novels that look into the “whys” of people behaviours and what influences them.

 

Editing and quality of writing is spot on, and priced at £3.38 for 234 pages is around average for value.

Stars: I’m still mixed over how I feel about this novel – I enjoyed lots of it and yet my caveats over the parts I’ve mentioned overshadows some of that. Its better than a three star and yet doesn’t quite make it as a four for me. So its a three and half. Of course what I don’t like others may and perhaps if you want a thriller without in-your-face, passionate sex, then this is for you 🙂 We all love different things in books thankfully.

 

 

 

Lucifers Daughter Eve Langlais

I received this book free via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I don’t gush and give false praise – I don’t believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book.

Muriel is Satan’s daughter – a virgin still at 23 and holding out for true love Satan is disappointed in her failure to live up to the demonising ways he wants. He loves her though, and is always trying to get her to flip over to the “dark” side of morality. She has lots of half siblings, mostly incubus/succubus so Satan’s very happy with their morals of course! We meet one, Bambi (Bambi the succubus – what irony!) who tries to help Muriel and protect her. Satan isn’t the bad guy we expect – just one who loves his family and tries to live up to his reputation. He’s a soft spot for Muriel and pops in almost daily to chat to her and offer tips on how to lose her virginity or do something to keep up the family reputation for evil. Muriel owns a bar and one evening three gorgeous hunks stroll in…life is never quite the same after wards.

Eve has a great way with words – I read one of her books last summer and it had me in stitches, this one has similar results. Whilst I was reading I couldn’t help the sniggers slipping out and Him Indoors kept saying “what’s so funny?” but you have to read it in context to understand it. Satan has some great lines, Muriel is lovely, one of life’s innocents in many ways and yet being brought up by Lucifer she is very familiar with the world of hell-hounds and the dangers of demons. Suddenly however it seems that more than usual number of demons are out to kill her and there are whispers of another uprising to overthrow Lucifer. The plot thickens, Muriel’s finds sizzling romance ( and a good helping of lust), demons abound, there are captures and escapes and all wrapped up in some fantastic snarky quips from Lucifer.

The book is written from Muriel’s point of view and very dialogue based – my favourite type. It allows the quips and humour to come through and makes me feel as though I’m present in the novel. The characters are well written and feel real, and I was quickly drawn into the novel and the actions and drama. Its fast paced and the humour just shines through – its a kind of demon-lit novel. Super-lit? Fantasy-lit? Hard to describe but like a chick-lit but with supernatural characters. They feel real though and its easy to get absorbed into the events. Muriel’s brilliant, proud she can protect herself and yet happy like lots of females for a real Alpha male to take charge (or at least think he’s in charge – we all know how to do that don’t we ?) And Auric is certainly all Alpha male. He has secrets though and Muriel needs to know what they are. I love when she goes out with him against dads edict and he them tells her she’s grounded – but the demon carrying the message is confused by it 🙂 the novel is full of little quirks like that and made me laugh – a lot.

Its a funny light-hearted feel good book, not a great in-depth drama but one to relax with and lose yourself in for a few hours. Its an easy read with no huge surprises but fun all the way through. There;s sex here, scorching hot sex at times but not too graphic and it fits the plot lines perfectly. If you want a sexy, light, romantic fantasy read to brighten your spirits for a while this is it. I hope Eve writes more from Lucifer and Muriel ( and the delicious Auric of course).

Stars: well, its well edited, a bit short for me at 110 pages but that’s personal taste. I love long novels being a quick reader, but have friends who want short books as they only read a few pages at a time and want a book they can finish. Actually this is the perfect read for a train ride or something like that. Priced at £1.99 its par for the course with similar novels and worth the money. I’m giving it four stars.

Return of the Fae by Lynn Cahoon.

 

 

ARC supplied by Lyrical Press.

Having reviewed and loved the first in this series A Member of the Council, I was pleased to get to review book two. This one picks straight up into the story. Parris’ background is still a puzzle, she needs to focus on learning what she should have been taught as a child, and its hard work catching up in the few weeks she has to learn her magic control. Ty is still feeling distracted with his desire for her but he knows to help her best he needs to keep distance. That’s harder than it seems though when they both feel so strongly attracted to each other. Ty feels they need to seek out a mentor from his past to work out some answers, so they take a road trip….and the action starts. Twists and turns, betrayals and deception – they aren’t sure who to trust any more.

I love Parris of course, and Ty- he’s so determined to do what is right and yet his feelings for Parris have jerked his traditional black and white approach, and made him be more flexible. Parris – well she’s such a lady. Cares for her family and friends, determined to always do what’s right, and yet struggling with this new world and danger she’s been thrust in. We meet a couple of new people this time too – some Fae guardians, (I loved Toki) a witch water statue (she’d been made a statue for punishment) and a troll. Keeps things interesting 🙂 and adds to the feel of fantasy mixed with reality that the story takes. The plots are fairly simple but neatly done, and tightly wrapped up with excitement and drama. They work really well considering the short length of the book. I had a small inkling of who the betrayer was from the clues set up, and was glad to be proved right! However I have no idea what’s going to happen next, something to look forward to – and hadn’t a clue this book would take the direction it did. Lynn likes to keep her readers guessing and that’s good – I want to be interested in what’s going to happen in a series. Though this adventure ties up well, it ends up with Pariss and Ty still seeking answers about Coven X, and setting the scene for their next part in the series. I want to have the next book Now!

As usual its well written and edited, and it’s 113 pages long. I don’t have pricing info yet. Its available July 1, 2013.

Stars: another solid four – great story that kept my interest, will go in my keepers file but a bit short for me. Still, once I have the whole series of novels like this I love to read them back to back and that then isn’t a problem.

Taken by Him: A Billionaire’s Club Story Red Garnier.

Taken by Him: A Billionaire's Club Story (The Billionaire's Club)

ARC supplied by Netgalley.

The Billionaire’s Club is a series new to me, and although there’s already one book out each are stand alone so it was no problem to read this not having read book one. The books share characters and this one is about one of the members, Luke Preston. Playboy Luke has been shot by a jealous lover, and the police have yet to capture him so his friends persuade him to lay low for a while and take a sex break. Unheard of for Luke but he agrees after some persuasion on their part. They’ve been friends along time and he knows they have his best interest at heart.

However only a short while into his break on a secluded Cancun resort he sees Peyton, and his attraction is immediate…and Peyton is there hoping for a fling to shake off some of the staidness her life has become.

I liked both characters, really felt for Peyton with her determination to let go and yet still she felt afraid of what she was doing. Once she took the plunge though she was a wildcat and it was great to feel her grown in confidence. Luke took a bit of time to warm to – he started as a typical arrogant, selfish man-whore – “they all know the score so..” is his feelings about his love them and leave them lifestyle. He doesn’t care if the ladies end up broken hearted as he feels he’s given fair warning. Well of course this time the boot is on the other foot.

The novel is quite short at just 112 pages so of necessity the action takes place over the first few days, then a gap of a few weeks and another few days interaction. In a short novel such as this it works well rather than trying to cover too long a time span and lose the essence of the book. Its a fun, hot and steamy read, with smouldering sex scenes. The attraction between Luke and Peyton is instant on both sides, and the sexual tension leaps off the page until she says “yes”, – then its all action and non stop sex for the couple. Inevitably the stay comes to an end and they go their separate ways, and that’s when Luke discovers this time he’s at the other end and what is he going to do about it?

Its a great fun romance with a HEA – well written and edited and packed with emotion. The scenes are very realistic and I felt that the couple could easily be real, the settings and the action blended so easily.

I’m not really a novella fan, but I did enjoy this and for a quick easy read to make you feel good and brighten your mood this is just perfect. It doesn’t have great drama, no deep dark plots as its not got the length, and Red sensibility focusses on what will work best – a simple, emotive, erotic love story.

Priced at £1.98 for 112 pages it’s at the upper end of my personal VFM scale but for those who love to re-read a short, steamy romance it’s better value of course. Horses for courses and all that….

Stars: four – great fun, hot read but a one off for me.
