REVIEW BY LIZZY - Fallen (Billionaires of Manhattan, #1) by Natasha Grace
Fallen (Billionaires of Manhattan, #1) - Natasha Grace

After finding out that her husband of three years has been cheating on her, the only thing recently widowed Samantha Collins wants to do is to put her old life behind her. The first thing on the checklist? To sell her husband's share of the hedge fund he started with his best friend.

 

Only Luke Darren has different plans.

 

More comfortable with running the day-to-day operations of the firm, Luke has always stayed in the background, letting Jason become the face of the company. But now that Jason's gone, clients have been leaving in droves. The last thing he needs is for Samantha to leave as well. It would be the last straw for the customers who were already on the fence about pulling their money out and Luke couldn't risk that.

 

But soon, working with Samantha is wrecking his concentration. He's been in love with her for years and with Jason no longer in the way, being friends just isn't enough and he soon finds himself wanting more!

 

Fallen is a stand-alone novel

A passion for dance brings two different people together. Loved it!
The Duke's Fallen Angel - Amy Jarecki

This story kept me turning the pages. I loved Bri's grace and innocence, and her determination to find out about her past. Drake was a bit of a bully in the beginning, but he grew on me. Once he realized what was important, he showed his true colors. There are several wonderful secondary characters, as well as a couple not-so-nice ones. I felt the love of dance through both Bri and Drake's eyes and feelings. I highly recommend this story.

This is my unsolicited review.

"Silence Fallen -Mercy Thompson #10" by Patricia Briggs - read for the Shifter square in Halloween Bingo
Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

"Silence Fallen" is the tenth Mercy Thompson book, a point where some series start to creak, strain and repeat themselves. Patricia Briggs avoided this by filling "Silence Fallen" with firsts: the first time Mercy has been to Europe, the first time sections of the story are told from Adam's point of view and the first time that the Patricia Briggs has gone with a not-entirely-linear timeline.

 

It mostly worked.

 

The parts told from Adam's point of view did give me a different perspective and also rounded-out some of the secondary characters but Adam lacks Mercy's snarky optimism and, surprisingly, her ruthlessness, which made him less fun to be around. The politics was interesting but went on a little too long.

 

Mercy sparkles from the first line: 

"I died first, so I had to make cookies."

What a way to start a book.

 

The move from this kind of silly domestic humour, with werewolves LARPing as Pirates to Mercy taking sudden violence in her stride, is central to the appeal these books hold for me. 

 

Moving the story to Europe was a smart idea and opened up some interesting back stories but Mercy sometimes sounded too much like a guidebook to Prague without really giving a sense of the place. I didn't like the World War II stories being woven into the werewolf world. It felt a little exploitative and wasn't entirely necessary to the plot.

 

I enjoyed Mercy's resourcefulness and the way she thought her way out of difficult spots. There were some new developments on her relationship with ghosts that seem promising and I thought having her fight using a scythe was inspired.

 

This was fun but not more than that. I'm hoping the next book, "Storm Cursed", will go back to a more Mercy-centric way of telling the story.

 

Click on the SoundCloud link below to hear the start of the book. The audio version gets two narrators this time and manages the shifting timelines without too much fuss.

Reading progress update: I've read 4%.
Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

Bingos seem to be beyond me at the moment so I'm just using the bingo calls to test my appetite rather than to plan a game strategy. Having "Shifters" called reminded my how much I've been looking forward to reading the 10th Mercy Thompson book.

 

I've barely started it but my body had that same learned response to it as to holding a warm cup in cold hands and inhaling the scent of my first cup of coffee.

 

Thank you, Patricia Briggs. My your words never desert you and my your character always blossom.

Unrequited (Fallen Aces MC Book 1) - Max Henry

BLOODY HELL THIS WAS AWESOME!!!!

I can't remember the last time I read a book in this genre that was THIS intense, scary, intriguing, and heartbreakingly beautiful as this story is.

I mean WOW! And just imagine how ticked I was with the way the cliffy landed. But I was just as equally giddy about the fact that I had a "Free Lending Book due" at Kindle. So King & Elena's conclusion is about to be devoured by yours truly. ;)

Get this book people while it is still free. You will not regret this one.
I am on to their conclusion 


#HappyIntenseReading :)
