Review: New York by J.C. Andrijeski

Series: A Bridge & Sword Prequel

 

My review

A great prequel – a little story (over 100 pages). Perfect introduction to the series “Bridget & Sword”.

I love the science fiction and apocalyptic story but with sexy and romance – for me nothing can compete with Quentin Black (Quentin Black Mystery) but this come pretty damn close, good job.

Easy read, will you be sucked in the universe J.C. Andrijeski has created.

Allie calls it her New York jinx.

Already she’s had to deal with her boyfriend’s obnoxious band groupies, a stalker leaving cryptic notes, having to watch a seer get tasered.

She also keeps running into this weird cop who’s got some kind of issue with her.

But when she’s targeted by a religious cult for an end of the world ritual, her visit goes from annoying to quite probably fatal.

Review: Force by M. Malone & Nana Malone

Series: The force duet #1

 

My review

Love JJ and Jonas’ banter. Feel so sorry for the others on the team between Noah/Lucia and JJ/Jonas escapades.

Thank god JJ has a spine. Full of banter, hot people and “romance”.

Looking forward to Matthias’ book, I feel somewhat connected to him. Good thing he has those headphones.

Remember to read this after: Shame (Shameless # 0,5), Shameless (Shameless #1), Shameful (shameless #2), Unashamed (Shameless #3) because then you know the other people in the book better.

I am the shadow that haunts the night. I am a hunter, a protector…a force for good…I am Jonas Castillo.

For years I’ve existed on the edge of the dark, protecting innocents who can’t protect themselves. Until… her. Jessica JJ Jones. The bane of my existence. A bright light in the dark. The crack in my armor. A loud, argumentative beautiful crack in my armor.

But first, there’s a more immediate concern. JJ is running scared. And to protect her I might have to break the vow I made years ago.

Review: Watchers of the Veil by Lisa Manifold

Series: The Aumahnee Prophecy Book 1

 

My review (amazon link)

This book was a great read, it made me want to look for those prequels that lead to this book (but is optional – can be read without them) Happy that Eamonn is the one to help Marigold with her problem(s) and her family.

If you like the paranormal and magic this will be a good read, but be warned this is not you regular witch/werewolf store – there is a little twist in here. Loved the way the Fae world was created, great story and good amount of action. And I loved the King and the Queens banter.

A witch on a mission.

Searching for her sister, who ran off with the wrong sort of bad-news guy, Marigold finds herself in a bar on the worst side of town. She wonders again why she’s putting so much effort into finding her sister when nothing–even returning their golden child–is going to endear Marigold to her estranged family.

Frustrated yet again by the way she is sidelined in her quest, Marigold pursues a mysterious man whose appearance brings back disturbing memories. Expecting to find him alone and confront him, Marigold follows him out of the bar.

A Fae warrior on the hunt.

Tracking down a missing soldier after finding one of his men dead, Eamonn is also led to the same seedy bar. When his inquiries raise the attention of a gang of thugs, Eamonn finds himself fighting for his life in the dark alley behind the bar.

When Marigold stumbles on the scene in the alley, Eamonn is suddenly fighting for two lives instead of one. But what happens next surprises them both and sends them on a journey where they are forced to work together or die.

Can they become the team they need to be in order to survive?

Review: Triton by Alana Albertson

Series: Heroes ever after #2

 

My review (buy book here)

I found this book interesting and read it fairly quick.

Aria is an Olympian swimmer but has been beaten down mentally by her mother, so she is understandable a little insecure about herself or not sure about who she is.

I thought it was sweet that he put on that tail for her.

It was quite fun to see a SEAL and an Olympian together because the understand the training regime and the mindset of a really dedicated person.

But I was not a huge fan of Erik and his “anti-woman” stance and I really hated that part of Aria’s appeal for him was how she could help with his business (a SEAL and a Olympian) and then he was so mad because he felt that she used him.

TRITON: A Little Mermaid Retelling

Aria—I teach mermaid fitness at a ritzy hotel next to the Naval Amphibious Base. I know better than to let one of those famous frogmen chase my tail. But in a moment of weakness, I submit to Erik, a tattooed badass Navy SEAL. After one night of incredible passion, I can’t stop thinking about his cocky ways and his dirty mouth.

Then I get the opport

 

unity to train to be the first female Navy SEAL.

When I show up on the first day of training, I’m horrified to realize that Erik is my BUD/S instructor. He’s the only person who stands in the way of me achieving my dream.

I’m no quitter. He can taunt me, tease me, and run me ragged, but I’ll never ring that bell.

Erik—Aria is the most incredible woman I’ve ever met. She won the gold medal for synchronized swimming and she looks like a little mermaid the way she moves underwater. Once I find out that the sexy redhead is teaching aquatic classes next to my base, I vow to do anything to make her mine.

After our mind-blowing night together, she vanishes. I ask around and learn she went away to train. I assume it’s for another synchro competition.

I’m dead wrong.

She shows up in BUD/S as part of the first class to let in women. I’m head instructor of Phase One, and there’s no way in hell I will lower the standards of my Team to please the brass and make a political statement.

It doesn’t matter how much I want her because she’s forbidden to me now. I’m the teacher and she’s my student. She will obey my every command.
