Fun read
Demon in Disguise (Playful Demons Book 1) - Mary Abshire

Where Abshire's other series are steeped in suspense, this one is a bit more lighthearted and fun. There is still an element of mystery and a couple of fun twists along the way as we get introduced to the world of the Playful Demons. The characters, love them or not, are interesting. I wasn't sure about Jennifer in the beginning, but she did grow on me later in the story and while I wasn't thrilled with the way Brian handled his dilemma, it made for an entertaining twist. The most interesting character, at least in my opinion, was Dominick and I really hope to see more of him in this series. He's a hoot and was so much fun to read. I have to say that one of my favorite things about this author's work, is her different take on the supernaturals and where they come from. She always paints a picture that leaves me in awe of her imagination. I can easily recommend this one to anyone who enjoys a sexy, paranormal read and the novella length makes it perfect for a quick bedtime read.

The Door Into Fire (The Tale of the Five #1) by Diane Duane
The Door Into Fire - Diane Duane

Sex. Drugs. And Rock... Color Purple. Very 70-ies.


What. A. Drag. 

Never a straight (no pun) line in this book. I don't mind when a story gets from A to D via B, C and while at it detours through E and K. I do mind however, when the author goes through entire alphabet to connect A to B. Now imagine that alphabet being intense purple. It frigging haunts me in my sleep now.

One star.

And no, DD was not the one and only writing and publishing queer literature prior to 2001. No credit for that. Sorry, not sorry.

 

PS And what's with the cover? O.o

he Supreme Might of Love by Christa Tomlinson
The Supreme Might of Love - Christa Tomlinson

In all fairness, gladiators are not my slice of salami. 

I read this book for a challenge because of the Mars character. He disappointed me a quite a bit, since his true nature never got a chance to shine. As for the mortals, as entertaining their relationship was in the beginning, it all turned to lust and then love all too quickly, at the same time failing to produce any hint of chemistry between them. 

The book is short, and of course, it limits the opportunities for the characters and relationships to develop fully. The plot was a bit of a cliche, the chemistry, like I said, was non-existent, the sex was meh.

The Soldati Prince (Soldati Hearts #1) by Charlie Cochet
The Soldati Prince - Charlie Cochet

First of all, thank you, Manouchka, for lending me this book. It was perfect for my challenge. I really appreciate it, but I am afraid I am going to disappoint you with my review. Sorry about that :/

For some reason, I had high hopes for this book, even after reading Hell & High Water. Not sure what it was - the cover? - the blurb? - that made me curious about it.

Even after I started reading and then double and triple checked my shelves to make sure I've never read this story before (because it felt like I did), I was still sold on it. I am a sucker for unsuspecting humans being dragged into the world of magic. Big cold alphas and puny little (yet snarky, very snarky, and funny, too) humans is also my thing. So I gave this book a chance.

But around 40% in it all fell apart. It turned too sweet and too sugary and there were too many children wrapping everyone in sight around their little foxling's paws (cute, but that's not what the blurb promised!) And it was just downhill from there :( Rainbows, unicorns and lollipops :(

 



1 star.

 

PS ...and pink glitter unicorn cupcakes.

Reading progress update: I've read 1%.
Blood Bound - Patricia Briggs

Going to read this for the werewolves square instead of the demons square just to complete that square. Now I'm going to need a book for the demons square.
