Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7)

Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7) - Abigail Roux Oh my goodness what a cliffhanger!

Warrior's Cross

Warrior's Cross - Madeleine Urban,  Abigail Roux I heard that I should read this before I read Armed & Dangerous. I liked Julian and Cam a lot, but not as much as Ty and Zane. I loved how Cam would try to make himself feel better by letting his puppies climb all over him, because puppy piles always make everything better.

The dialogue between Julian and Cam wasn't as well developed as Ty and Zane, but I do look forward to continuing their story in Armed & Dangerous.

Cut & Run (Cut & Run, #1)

Cut & Run (Cut & Run, #1) - Madeleine Urban,  Abigail Roux I loved this book! To be honest, at first, I didn't really understand the appeal of the book because it was slow moving. However, I was hooked at about 30% through the book.

I figured out pretty early who the murderer was, but I loved how sick and twisted they were, and I love the theme of the murders. I thought all the characters were well developed, even ones that didn't appear for very long. Ty and Zane are hot and its so nice to read a book with a believable relationship. There are times where you'll laugh, where you'll cry, and where you'll want to strangle both of them. The dialogue flowed well, and there was very little info dumping, which was a relief.

The only complaint I had about the book was that it was too short! I'm so glad I have at least 6 more books to read in this series!

A Brush of Darkness (Abby Sinclair, #1)

A Brush of Darkness (Abby Sinclair, #1) - Allison Pang Definitely a unique store, and I loved Phineas, but I didn't connect with Abby or Ion. I probably won't continue with the story.

Fifth Grave Past the Light (Charley Davidson, #5)

Fifth Grave Past the Light (Charley Davidson, #5) - Darynda Jones While this series is one of my must read series, the latest installment fell short. Charley kept getting on my nerves because the humor felt forced. It was like Charley was trying too hard to be quirky and funny, but just fell flat.

I also felt no connection to Reyes. He was just there.

I didn't like the ending to the mystery at all. I felt like the book would have ended much better if the bad guy could be brought to justice, rather than just having him exist in a nursing home. Charley's abduction at the end by a character that briefly showed up in the beginning of the book felt like it was just thrown in there.

This book would have been 4 stars if it wasn't for the "Heil Hitler" salute. I thought that was in really bad taste.

I really expected more from this book. I wish it had lived up to my expectations.

Dead Ever After (Sookie Stackhouse, #13)

Dead Ever After (Sookie Stackhouse, #13) - Charlaine Harris I don't really know what I just read, but it wasn't as bad as people say it was. Then again, I never liked Eric the way everyone else did.

Empty Net (Assassins, #3)

Empty Net (Assassins, #3) - Toni Aleo This is by far my favorite book in the series. I loved Tate, I liked Audrey way more than Elli and Fallon, and I enjoyed the action at the end. The only reason this book is getting 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the hockey inaccuracies. I am a hockey fan (go Devils!), and it was hard to suspend my disbelief for the hockey parts, like having the most perfect team ever with the best defenseman, forwards, and goalies in the league.

Also the overuse of the word cooter was really annoying. Who says that word to their doctor?

Dark and Disorderly

Dark and Disorderly - Bernita Harris I liked this book a lot. Its such a shame that it was written as the first book in what seems to be a defunct series.

Play It Safe

Play It Safe - Kristen Ashley I just couldn't get pass the writing style. I've heard so many good things about Kristen Ashley, and I'm sure I will try one of her series in the future.

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2)

Beautiful Darkness (Caster Chronicles, #2) - Kami Garcia,  Margaret Stohl This book was way longer than it needed to be. 25% of this book could have been cut out and it still would have made sense.

Beautiful Chaos (Caster Chronicles, #3)

Beautiful Chaos (Caster Chronicles, #3) - Kami Garcia,  Margaret Stohl The first 2 books were decent, but I couldn't bring myself to finish this one.

Real (Real, Raw & Ripped, #1)

Real (Real, Raw & Ripped, #1) - Katy Evans This book gets 5 stars just for the fact that I couldn't put it down. The writing was decent; a few mistakes here and there but I've seen a lot worse in other novels. Characterization was good, even if Melanie was really annoying. The plot was predictable as soon as Nora appeared, but I was drawn more to the story of Remy and Brooke than what was happening with Nora.

I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

A Different Witch (A Modern Witch, #5)

A Different Witch (A Modern Witch, #5) - Debora Geary Not my favorite Debora Geary book. I just didn't connect with this book the way I did with the other ones.

Lucas (Vampires In America, #6)

Lucas (Vampires In America, #6) - D.B. Reynolds I like Lucas. Really like Lucas. Could care less about Kathryn though.

For Whom The Spell Tolls (Dulcie O'Neil, #6)

For Whom The Spell Tolls (Dulcie O'Neil, #6) - H.P. Mallory A fitting end to the series. The series had its hiccups along the way, but overall, it was a fun and light read.

Malice In Wonderland (Dulcie O'Neil, #5)

Malice In Wonderland (Dulcie O'Neil, #5) - H.P. Mallory Not a memorable installment in the Dulcie O'Neil series. I was waiting for the action to start and then all of a sudden the book was over without anything happening at all.
