Crash Morph, J C Andrijeski

Crash Morph (The Gate Shifter Series Book 2)


Crash Morph, J C Andrijeski
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Sci-fi, Fantasy, Urban fiction.
It’s no secret Allie’s War is one of my all time favourite series, so I was excited to read of a new one coming out, Gate Shifters. I loved book one, and quickly got into the new world JC has written. Dakota and Nik are tow very different people, and yet from the moment they met there’s been an underlying sizzling attraction. Dakota, spunky human PI, and Nik an ..alien? person from another world? It’s kind of hard to categorise what Morph’s are – they’re complex shape shifters who can take on human form, and have a complication in the form of a Lock, a connection that’s fixed with another person that controls when they can shift, and allows things such as telepathic communication and ability to feel each others emptions. That’s where this reminded me of Allie and Revik, ( ah, Revik…swoon) that close connection…and now that they’re back on earth – along with a couple of hundred other Morph – they need that connection. Dakota has got a contract out on her, the Ted Bundy character she fell foul of right in the beginning is out to get her, and of course Razmun, terrorist leader of the other Morph wants to use her to control Nik. He needs Nik’s ability to open gates for the group to escape, but creating one large enough for all of them isn’t easy. Nik is the only one capable of  doing it, and it’s going to be hard for him especially as they need to hide it, and how can you hide a huge stone construct on a golf course, the place it needs to be…While Nik is researching that they need to lie low, and keep Nik out of Government eyes. What Dakota went through on Nik’s planet is close to what will happen to Nik here. Dakota and lie low though, that’s hard. She needs to earn money and her long time friend Gantry, ex part time lover, comes up with a job for her that looks straightforward but brings her into great danger.
Nik, he’s changed since we first met him but still has trouble with human ways, such as not discussing sex and erections with everyone at breakfast! Gantry is still very suspicious of him, and to me he’s jealous too of what he shares with Dakota. Nik too is jealous of Gantry and very protective of Dakota, he worries about her safety and wants to be with her all the time, but its just not possible. Jake, her brother is back, he’s always on the lookout for someone new, rich and able to take care of him. Male or female he doesn’t worry, he’s an equal opportunity lover. Its how he lives, touring the world with whatever rich person wants him at the time. He’s fascinated by Nik and very attracted to him, loving the way Nik is so innocent of the intricacies of human life, and Dakota gets really irritated at the way he’s so openly admiring of Nik. Irene, she owns the house where they’re all currently staying and is the back force to the PI part of Dakota’s life. She does all the research, the internet investigations on people and places, while Dakota does the field work. Gantry has his own crew, and is helping Dakota and Nik while they work out what to do.
Its scary seeing Razmun playing human and as a would be Politician. Its similar to what he did on their home planet, and he’s very good in the public eye. Knowing how much he hates humans ( they’ve enslaved and controlled Morph as little more than useful pets for generations so its understandable) Dakota is worried about what he’s doing. They need to find that out, find out how to construct a gate, find out where the others are, and if they’re willing to leave if they can get the means for it sorted. All the while trying to keep Nik away from official eyes, and keep Dakota safe from those out to harm her – its not an easy task.
Once again its a terrific read. It doesn’t have the open sexuality of the AW series, but Nik and Dakota are getting closer and there are some very sensual interludes. This novel takes place on earth and its scary how real it feels, and how easy it would be for it to happen. I can just see what would happen to Nik if Gov officials got to him as happening in real life – testing as if he’s sub human, treated along the lines of animal sentience not human sentience. It would be a “ greater good “ argument not a humanity/cruelty one they’d use, and that’s really sad..anyway enough of my ramblings, if you loved AW you’ll love this. Its less complex in world building and characters but the same imaginative and gripping storylines, where you just have to know more, to know what’s going to happen next and wonder how the heck JC is going to get them out of danger once again.
Stars: Five, fantastic read, and I’m looking forward to what happens next. Unlike the AW series these can be read as stand-alone books, though I think it’s best to read book one first and they are great value for money. Definitely a keeper for re reading.

Into Darkness, J.T. Geissinger

Into Darkness (A Night Prowler Novel)


Into Darkness, J.T. Geissinger
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I was a bit confused when I began this book – I’ve read all of them so far and its a great series, but it seemed an unfamiliar world. All became clear though once I realised we’d moved forward 25 years and the world had changed – big time! And not for the better…
Lumina is special, and she has to keep her differences hidden or risk a fate literally worse than death. The world is ruled by Sebastian Thorne, owner of the Phoenix Corporation. We see now how he links to the mysterious group where people are only numbers, and they are out to kill any and ultimately all Ikati. After the Flash they became scattered and Magnus – who is known as the Seeker – has made it his task to find and get together to safety as many as possible. When Lumina is in danger after an incident he rescues her, takes her to the others and she learns more about who she really is, and what part she needs to take.
Its another fantastic read, and it was great seeing how all the threats opened through the series gradually drew closed, pulling together all the different factions. The world is a dangerous place for their kind, though most humans don’t have it good either… and then Magnus and the group learn that time is running out for the Ikati. Its plunges him and Lumina into a dangerous, some would say foolhardy, recue attempt risking their own lives too – but its all or nothing, and neither can sit back and let thousands of their people die without trying.
Magnus and Lumina – wow – already connected via their sensual and erotic dreams, and yet in reality he veers from seeming to be attracted to being closed and cold. She’s torn, and confused but when they do get together its explosive – literally!!
Fantastic finish, really well written and its been a fantastic journey.
Stars: Five, a cracking finish to a fabulous series!

Gray Bishop, Kelly Meade

Gray Bishop (A Cornerstone Run Trilogy)


Gray Bishop, Kelly Meade
Genre: paranormal romance.

Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I hadn’t realised this was the second book in a trilogy. I found myself thinking it seemed as if a prior level of knowledge about the characters was assumed and then on checking found I’d missed book one…my error. I’m human, it happens. I’d seen the description and it sounded good so I didn’t check further. Anyway I went back and read the amazon sample of book one and synopsis, and a few reviews to get a feel of the background then came back to Grey Bishop.
I had a couple of troublesome concepts to cope with . First -the whole Black, Grey, White separation of werewolves seemed a bit odd to me, it seems like an attempt to add something new into an existing genre but TBH for me it was an unnecessary layer of separation. Its a small population already and with human/other supernatural pairings frowned upon I couldn’t see why add another bar to couples. Then the hybrid sisters killing so many werewolves, four of them and they killed hundreds? In one go it seems at times…I couldn’t see that, however fast and strong their vampire side made them. It was just too much to be realistic and even in fantasy I need realism, the idea that if the scene was real it could actually happen and four creatures taking out hundreds of trained, ultra strong werewolves – nope, doesn’t work for me.
The romance side though… that worked. I liked Gillian and understood her grief, and her attraction to Bishop. Her husband was a good man, and she’d loved him, grieved deeply when he died but he wasn’t her Mate. Bishop feels as if he is, right from their first meeting they’ve felt a pull towards each other that’s hard to ignore. How sad then that the colour issue is one of the bars against them… He was a strong potential leader too – very much aware of his duty to his family and the Pack as a whole, and I really felt for him when he thought he’d let his brothers down. Both times there really wasn’t anything more he could do, and yet he still felt responsible for their grief and pain. The battles are fierce and bloody, and the pain suffered by those left felt very real. I liked that the McQueen pack welcomed half breeds, unlike others that cast them out. They needed the strength that new blood brings, even if it isn’t pure werewolf. I did have trouble with how they kept everything away from human eyes, somehow I couldn’t see for instance, just the auction house providing work and finance for everyone, and yet their interaction with humans was minimal so how could they work with them? If they died how would the pack explain it? I couldn’t quite see how that married up with modern technology that keeps track of everyone – they needed some way surely to explain how hundreds of them had died? It was a gap that kept coming back for me through the novel, how did a whole village ( several whole villages ) hide from humans? Might have been possible a couple of hundred years back, but with technology and travel today it wouldn’t work. I needed some answers, even if it was just some kind of witch spell that kept them hidden.
The story as a whole was a mixed bag for me. I liked the premise and it could have been a 4-5 star read for me if not for those niggling questions that make it feel so unreal.
Stars: Three, lots of potential, lots of action and good plots but too many unanswered questions for a higher rate from me.

Rogue, Eden Bradley

Rogue (The Midnight Playground)


Rogue, Eden Bradley
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
Well, two days running I’ve been caught by a new series that’s actually turned out to be a continuation/extension of an existing series. Though this is Midnight Playground International, book one, its got all the characters and world building from the original Midnight Playground series. Of course not having read that I knew nothing about it…it’s not that hard to pick up though, but I think readers will enjoy it more if they read the others.
As it was it’s a novel that didn’t really work for me, being a very short book of around 150 kindle pages. That doesn’t really give a story a chance to get set, and I found this was mainly a succession of M/M sex scenes ( fine, I like those) set inside a very thin story line, and that doesn’t work for me. I need the sex to be a part of the story, not the whole thing. More story and less sex is what works for me, and this is more sex, less story IMO.. Its really just an introduction of how Rogue joins the existing group of vampires, by way of lots of sometimes very rough and bloody sex and beatings. I didn’t find the sex scenes very erotic, missed the tenderness of a proper romance, and found the back story just too thin. Sadly a book that wasn’t for me though I can see already its got lots of four and five star reviews. Still, that’s how it goes, and that gives us a good range of books to enjoy.
Stars: Two – just didn’t suit me.

The Chalet, The Submissive Series, Tara Sue Me

The Chalet: A Submissive e-novella 3.5 (The Submissive Series)


The Chalet, The Submissive Series, Tara Sue Me
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

Well, I loved the previous books and was eager to read this one but….I should have stopped at book three. For me the magic was Abby and Nathaniel getting together, all the friction, drama, problems and solutions that made up their journey. Now they are together and this book – novella – is about their wedding and honeymoon and its…Sweet. Its so sweet it’s lost it’s magic for me. Its a good way to complete the story ( except now I see there’s another book planned!) for those who need it,  but for many readers I suspect like me they’ll wish they stopped at the last book. This didn’t add anything for me, its a decent read, well written but no drama, at least not the sort we’ve come to expect and as such its was just a Nice book…nothing special. I’ve noticed more and more authors doing this, writing books beyond what was planned, writing the story in a different POV and I find it very rarely works. Its better to spent time and imagination on something new than to bring down what’s already written by adding more. Think of those TV series which we loved, who then produced more or spin offs that didn’t work. They dragged down the original- always stop at the top, finish where originally planned. This book could have been shortened and added as a brief epilogue at the end of book three, if it was really needed. I actually enjoy series that finish that way – that give me a tiny glimpse into a happy future and that’s all that’s needed. IMO of course!
Stars: Three – its a sweet read, no drama though. I urge Tara to seriously reconsider bringing out a  further book. Best to stop at the top, which was at book three for me.

Light Her Fire Samantha Beck


Light Her Fire Samantha Beck

review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I’ve enjoyed some of the Brazen novels before – they’re an easy, quick and hot read. Sometimes you want an in-depth book, sometimes just a quick, erotic, escapist read and that’s what I wanted yesterday. Light Her fire provided it.

I liked Melody but did find it a bit hard to believe that she’d been engaged for so long without really questioning her ex. They’d stayed friends though, and she kept his secret. That meant she had to put up with the prim and proper reputation, and the pitying looks for having been dropped by what was the town’s golden boy. Then Josh comes on the scene. Its a small town and everybody knows everything – as Josh soon finds out. It’s very different to what he’s used to as a city boy, but as he reminds himself when help up yet again by the locals who see him as interfering, this is just a short stepping stone on the way to his ultimate goal,  Chief of a city fire station. Melody though catches his eye, he’s heard her rep of course but she gives him some searing looks, and he can’t help but keep eye f cking her…and then she calls him on it. Soon they’re embroiled in a passionate affair, but what about the future? She wants to stay here and he wants to move back to the city – its early days, but it’s clear their original short, no strings affair means more to both of them. Rock meet hard place.
There’s some hot and erotic scenes here, with Josh teaching inexperienced Melody what her body really wants. She too has some eye-openers for him, after getting tips from her ex and his boyfriend…surprised Josh! There’s some great humour tucked in too, along with the danger from an arsonist that initially gets passed off by the Mayor and the other fire crew as just local teens messing around. It proves more though, and Josh is vindicated but it leads to a situation where his life is in danger.

Stars: four.  Its a fun read, a good escape and it is exactly what it pitches, a quick, hot, entertaining novel.

Two Bar Mitzvahs, Kat Bastion with Stone Bastion

Two Bar Mitzvahs (No Weddings Book 3)


 Two Bar Mitzvahs, Kat Bastion with Stone Bastion

Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

Genre:  romance, women’s fiction

Well, I loved the first two books and the heat has definitely turned up now – it took all of book one to get to a first kiss, all of book two to get Hannah into bed, but now they’re hot and heavy at every opportunity! It fits well into the scenes though, not added sex for the sake of it, but a natural progression as their relationship matures. Hannah is still struggling with her confidence though and having Cade’s ex turn up and make it clear she wants him back isn’t helping. Cade is wonderful, and tells Hannah he’s not interested, but he’s busy micromanaging every aspect of the businesses, and as they’ve grown and become more popular his time with Hannah is taking a knock. Plus of course he’s a guy (!)– and doesn’t know when he should tell Hannah things that he may think is irrelevant but she doesn’t, and it leads to some friction. As ever the family and co workers/friends are a fabulous group. The story centres around Cade and Hannah, but the others play some important parts in the story. Madison – the ex – is a great character, a real nasty piece of work, manipulative and out for what she wants, regardless of the cost to others. I loved ( to hate!) her character. Once again the events are described wonderfully, fitting into the story and giving me a clear mental image of them. The convo with Madison over the food at the bar mitzvah – where she’s planned crab cakes and pigs in blankets, and talks down to Cade when he nixes them, suggesting he’s just being picky – then he points out the Jews/pork/shellfish connection …wonderful. Its that kind of tiny detail that’s potentially a huge problem that makes Cade so good at his job. Hannah’s cakes once again are incredible, I have this mental image of them and I love the way Kat and Stone have cone up with the most unusual ideas for them…
It all wraps up in another fabulous story, taking Cade and Hannah that one step further finally. Its full of emotion, smiles, despair, how to work through dramas, how to deal with ( and not deal with ) exes, and through it all is the shining happiness of Hannah and Cade – well until Cade takes a wrong step and it all crashes  He’s at a loss over how to sort things, how to persuade Hannah he can be trusted, that he will make things right. His dad is just wonderful, and gives him some very good advice about work/life balance and Cade can see where he’s let the ball slip – can he pick it up again though and show Hannah they belong together? That was so sad, I felt for him, we could see the disaster coming, but he was so busy micro managing he didn’t see it and when it hit – oh poor Hannah, with her past it struck her badly, and I was so sad for her, but rooting for Cade not to give up, to pick her up and put things right. They’re such a great couple, and this book has some very explicit steamy scenes, but they’re good both mentally and emotionally and not just in the physical sense.
There’s a theme of helping others less fortunate running through the series. Cade’s parents support an anti slavery charity, the businesses hold charity events, and the theme of one of the parties is about Fair Trade with only Fair Trade products used and partygoers encourages to purchase FT clothing. Its a reminder of the small things we can do in everyday life that can have a huge impact on other people’s lives. There’s a section at the end of the novel about the charities mention in the books. They are fictitious but there are real ones like them who need our help, and some of the proceeds from the  sales of the No Weddings series go to support them. See the website for more info.
Stars: Five , loved it.

Nice Girl to Love: Trilogy Boxed Set (#1 Resisting, #2 Falling, #3 Choosing) (CAN'T RESIST)


Nice Girl to Love: Trilogy Boxed Set, #1 Resisting, #2 Falling, #3 Choosing (The CAN’T RESIST Series) Violet Duke
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Contemporary romance
This is the way I love to read a trilogy, where all the books are out and I can read through back to back without waiting for more. I hate waiting months – years even – for the next part of a book, I find I just lose the impetus of the story so this was a perfect read in that sense for me.
I liked Abby – who couldn’t, she’s one of those genuinely nice people, who help others just because they can and don’t have a malicious side to them. Abby has a good girl front, but in her past there’s a dark side that still shadows her actions. She’s known Brian for years and helped him with Skylar while his wife was ill, and after she died. she’s been a solid support. Brian – he seems the nice guy too, and perhaps a perfect match for Abby. He was certainly a loyal husband and a wonderful dad, with Skylar being his priority. Connor is described as the “bad boy” type and yet…to me he didn’t seem that way. He’s a playboy but he’s honest, upfront with what he expects and doesn’t lead ladies on to think he’ll change. Everyone knows after one month that’s it – that’s the way he is and while I’d find that hard to take I admire his honesty about it.
When we get to know all of them better we see more, we learn about Abby’s past, can see much of why Brian is so independent, and that Connor isn’t as black as he’s painted. In fact he gave up a lot to help Brian when Beth was pregnant and has been a huge support to him since.
So, Abby starts with one month with Connor, falls in love and then the month is up. Connor though has shocked himself, he doesn’t want this to be the end but…Brian seems to have finally recognised what’s under his nose and he wants a shot at winning Abby’s love. Connor agrees to step back and let Brian try to win Abby’s heart, even though he loves her himself. That’s where for me Brian falls down – he Knows Abby is in love with Connor, he Knows Connor loves Abby, he Knows she’s distraught at his dropping contact and yet – he wants her for himself never thinking of what either Abby or his brother want. To me that’s quite selfish, if he genuinely felt for Abby surely he’d be honest, and let her go the way her heart wants. Why only now does he want her when she’s been there for years, it’s as if he only noticed her once Connor did.
After dating him for one month, and learning some surprises Abby is stuck, both brothers want her but how can she choose. To me its the one that makes her heart spin, Connor, but being Abby she can’t bear to hurt Brian, he doesn’t affect her heart the way Connor does, but that long friendship they have is confusing her, Brian’s presenting himself differently, and he’s a man she is attracted to – is it enough though? Of course there’s also the fact that if she chooses him Connor will be hurt. They all make an agreement that personally I think is weird….but that’s fiction Winking smile
There’s some heat here, some really sad events, and some humour too. I’d have liked more of Connor’s jealous exes – just because I love that bitch snark that comes out. Skylar was a gem and I was really sad for her in parts, she deserved so much after losing her mum but life is unfair. I can see where she wanted Abby and her dad to be together, a young teen would hope for that once the option is presented. She’d have been happy if Abby and Connor were together before Brian made a play, once that was done though her views were inevitable – a new mum who loves her and she knows, respects and loves, or an new aunt. Well, look at it from her side and its an easy choice. Its not hers to make though, but whatever happens she’s affected closely.
Its a good series, not heart stopping dramatic, though there are moments that are breath holding, and overall its a trilogy I enjoyed but not one I’d re read. I don’t have the same criticism of Connor as other reviewers have – to me he was honest and upfront, and I’d rather that than a sleaze who leads people to think there’s more, then drops them. His views were practically considered and he did it to stop anyone getting hurt – or at least try…Abby sleeping with both was a bit …strange. I think she’d have felt more uncomfortable about it than we’re told. There’s nothing actually wrong in it – just that the side of her we’re given I wouldn’t have expected her to do that.
Stars: three and a half. Better than just Good, but not a Great book. Its well written and everything adds up neatly its just emotionally it didn’t get me deeply and I want that from my romances.

The Demon Count Novels, Anne Stuart


The Demon Count Novels, Anne Stuart
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Historical Romance.
These two stories were fun to read, they reminded me of the books I’d read as a teen, Victoria Holt, Jean Plaidy etc.. a bit of romance, a bit of mystery and lots of local colour. I loved the Venetian setting, I felt I was there, back in time among the old buildings and canals. I’ve seen comments that question whether a young lady could/would travel alone in that time. For me I’m not too worried about the reality of facts like that so long as they lead to a fun story, and it does. I like Carlotta ( so much nicer that Charlotte, more romance about it) and the way she was just too inquisitive for her own good. Luc, well he was a real man of mystery and it doesn’t take too many guesses to work out where he stands, but Carlotta is taken in by the rumours, is he the murderer, is he a vampire, is he an enemy to England…and for an impressionable and inquisitive young lady its a puzzle she can’t let pass. I loved Patrick the cat, even wondered whether he was more than he seemed Winking smile at times.
The second story didn’t quite grab me the same way, it was fun and felt similar to the first in that it was reminiscent of past novels but the story itself didn’t quite fit with me. I think its the characters, in the first book I was really into them – they seemed very clear cut and maybe I got spoiled a bit – perhaps some distance before I read book two would have been better. I really wanted more Luc and Carlotta not the next generation, I wasn’t ready to leave them.
Stars: three and a half. They were fun to read but no something I’d re read.

Edit: After reading the books and writing my review I noticed these were originally published in 1980. That accounts for why they felt so reminiscent of books I read back then….but tastes change, and they do feel a little dated compared to todays market. Still, a gentle romance with some history and colour colour added and they were fun and easy read.

Alex (A Cold Fury Hockey Novel), Sawyer Bennett

Alex: A Cold Fury Hockey Novel (Carolina Cold Fury Hockey)


Alex (A Cold Fury Hockey Novel), Sawyer Bennett
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
My second Sawyer Bennet novel..I loved the fabulous Confessions of a Litigation God so was hoping for good things from this one, and I wasn’t disappointed.
It’s a tale of two people who’ve had horrific childhoods, and who’ve taken a very different path in adulthood. Alex is a top hockey star, still inwardly suffering from his controlling, dominatiing father’s cruel childhood abuse. His dad was determined to make hima top hockey player and was so OTT in the things he did to poor Alex from when he was very young. He was punished for every tiny mistake, even if the team thought he’d done really well. His dad still phones after every match to ream him about what he thinks he did wrong. Never praise just the lecture. Alex copes by closing himself off from everyone and by being a jerk. He’s not ashamed when he gets the MVP awards and the fans name him Most Valuable Prick….it all rolls off him. He does his stuff, plays the game and suceeds, and he doesn’t care what others think. Not the fans, not the players or managers, no friends, he just does physical sex, not relationships. Then he meets Sutton. His team managers have tired of his antics, and punish him by making him take part in a drug, alcohol and addiction outreach project. It’s actually somehing he’d do anyway, as it involves visiting schools etc to talk to youths and maybe stop some from getting stuck in the spiral he was caught in by his alcoholic father. He needs the money from the sport, otherwise he’d tell management what to do with their attempts to rein him in, but though he doesn’t enjoy it Hockey is all he has ever done, and he’s unqualified for anythng else…
Then he meets Sutton and he’s attracted straight off, but she shooots down his attempts to get her to his house ( she knows what he means by his offer to cook dinner at his house!!) They have a couple of false starts where they irritate each other, but then a corner is turned and Alex finds that its not just Sutton’s body he likes but her mind too. Gradually he finds himself talkiung to her as a friend – and he’s never had one of those. She makes him look at things in a different way, and he begins to change. They get closer too til they are finally immersed in a fully fledged, hot and sensual relationship. That Alex has some great moves…. As always though there’s a worm in the apple and Alex gets scared…I’d have liked that part to have been more drawn out – I like to really feel the hurt, to get upset for the characters, to wallow with them in their sorrow – then when they make up it makes me so much happier. It was still good though, still a terrific read and one full of drama and emotion, one that made me look at the characters and how their pasts affected them differently.
Stars: Almost a five, a four and a half.
