Release Day Review! Hard Breaker (Gargoyles # 6) by Christine Warren
Hard Breaker: A Beauty and Beast Novel (Gargoyles Series) - Christine Warren

 

 

From New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren comes the sixth book in her red-hot romance series in which even the most beastly gargoyle is able to win the heart of a beautiful human woman.

Ivy Beckett has a special gift. She can hear voices, feel events, and receive messages from great distances. Which is also a curse. The moment her family is killed by the servants of the Darkness, she knows it. And the only way to fight these evil forces is to align her powers with a Guardian. A legendary warrior of stone who strikes fear in her heart
and fire in her soul…

Baen is a fierce and powerful gargoyle who has sworn to protect all humans from the Darkness. But when this mighty winged warrior swoops down to rescue Ivy from the jaws of death, he is drawn into a battle that is more dangerous
and more intimatethan he ever bargained for. The beautiful, gifted Ivy touches something deep within him, an all-consuming passion that puts both their lives at risk. Can he conquer the armies of evil itself . . . without losing the woman he loves?

 

 

 

 

Christine Warren’s Gargoyle (aka: Beauty and the Beast) series is one series that you don’t want to miss. The series has gargoyle guardians and witchy warden’s saving mankind from evil’s clutches as it tries to encompass the world in darkness. First I guess, I should say that it is my understanding that Hard Breaker is the last book in this series and while I haven’t read all of them yet, (I really need to get caught up on my TBR pile!), the author makes it easy to read each and every book as standalones and still easily be able to grasp all concepts of the overall series plot.

 

That being said, let me get to what you really want to know; is this book good? Definitely, the author created a spectacular ending with a sensational battle and a very rocky relationship. Ivy is a reluctant heroine that gets the surprise of her life and has a bone to pick with fate which keeps the relationship on rocky ground despite the hot and heavy attraction that burns between them. The reader can certainly empathize with the situation that the characters find themselves in and Baen is one hunky winged guardian that easily captures the heart.

 

The danger that plagues the couple is full of suspense, thrills, betrayals and death defying action which keeps readers completely engrossed in the tale from start to finish and plenty of supporting characters spice things up to really keep readers on their toes.

What’s better than one sexy guardian? Why a six sexy guardians and their wardens, which the story provides as previous characters join our hero and heroine for one outstanding knock down drag out finale.  I love Christine Warren’s books and while I am sad to say goodbye to this series (of course I will be re-reading again and again) I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us readers next.

 

 

 

Hard Breaker is the 6th and final book in the Gargoyles series!

 

This series is based on an eternal conflict between good and evil. Our heroes are seven immortal Guardians, who view each other as brothers and work together to protect the world from the seven demons of the dark. Our heroines are the women who reawaken them...

Hard Breaker: A Beauty and Beast Novel (Gargoyles Series) - Christine Warren

The final battle has arrived. The seven major demons are ready to take their place in the world. And the only thing standing in their way are the seven Guardians and their mates. This installment doesn't just bring us the next couple but one major bomb is dropped that the Guardians' seventh brother is already on earth and has been from the very beginning. This one though focuses on Baen and Ivy. Ivy has been doing her part in this war in England where she helps the underground resistance to smuggle out Wardens and hide them from the Order. She can handle herself just fine but when a Guardian swoops in to save her she can't help but eye him as some delicious side of hotness. What she can't abide by though is losing her independence and doesn't like that Fate has said that they will end up together. While Baen tries to win over his mate's doubts and alleviates her fears, he also has his hands full saving her from one attack or another. The whole gang comes back together in Paris where they will stage their final stand and stop Armageddon. This one had all of the fun tongue-in-cheek humor that we have come to enjoy from Christine Warren's gargoyles and their outspoken mates. It was a fun ride filled from beginning to end with action and adventure and the ride was fun to go along with. Their passion and the scene where they confess their love is so beautifully written. Loved Baen's declaration and he handled it perfectly. Loved it. I do hope though that there might be one more book in the series about the last Guardian and his mate that we just very briefly met in this one.

Trouble With Gargoyles
Trouble with Gargoyles: an Urban Fantasy (Moonlight Dragon Book 3) - Tricia Owens

Opens with Anne and Mel facing off against each other eating hot, spicy chicken wings. Anne did this, in part, to get away from her shop which has a curse on it. Her pawn shop is already has its "normal" curse- she has walls that drip blood, a man whose face is being eaten by maggots appears in her bathroom mirror. This particular curse is worse, and quickly taken care of. Someone is stalking Anne and her friends (or are they?).
This installment has Anne's friends too. Both Anne's snarky narration and her friends humor make this a fun book. My favorite is Mel. She made me laugh. More revelations for Anne. She learns the truth about her parent's murder. She finds a journal that her uncle wrote for her that leads to both answers and questions. Vale comes clean about some things he should have shared long ago. Be interesting to see if Anne can continue to trick a certain entity. Looking forward to seeing that entity being taken down.

Hard to Handle (Gargoyles Series) - Christine Warren

More of a 3.25 I think.

 

I wanted to like this one, if only because the Guardian was a female. Alas, it was done in by secondary characters.

 

I almost felt sorry for the H but... he was so whipped it was almost embarrassing and really, if I had a family like that, I might have run screaming into the night. Why he still lived close enough for certain ones to show up on his doorstep, I dunno.

 

His kid sister, spoiled manipulative little brat. I was like, "oh well" when she got grabbed. I wanted to punch her in the face pretty much every time she opened her mouth.

 

Of course we get Kylie and Wynn (those two give me a headache - they converse with each other like 4th graders).

 

Thought to ponder, has any of the wardens accepted his or her new lot in life *in the context of this series?* Seems every one of them has been in some form of denial. That sort of plot device gets old after a while, as does the snarky/bitchiness every woman of power seems to possess.

 

And of course #5 is now free. Since this particular series has a sell-by date, and there's two more, I'm assuming the last one will feature some anti-climatic battle between the forces of good and evile that somehow gets shoehorned into half a chapter.

 

Remind me again why I'm reading this? Oh; right. Gargoyle romances are rare as hens' teeth. Too bad that none seem to actually be all that. :/

Hard to Handle (Gargoyles Series) - Christine Warren

Michael /Drum was a man blessed with four  independent sisters. Drum had a persistant tingling at the back of his neck  had plagued him with an reachable itch for the last six months. Through dreams Drum was having persistent dreams of things he refused to name and would prefer not to remember. Drum impressed on his family not to take silly chances in today’s world. The family was meant to stick together and watch each others back Drum owns a bar called Skin And Bones. Drum and his family has gifts that set them apart Drums gift  is he can find things. His sister Maeve has the gift of sight. Drun did not like his sister being out alone at night. That was the night he met Ash and his life was changed forever. Ash was the first of her kind and she has no idea why she woke up or woke her up. Ash is a woman Gargoyle who is to protect humans. The Order of Darkness  is a threat coming closer to being a problem.  Drum and Maeve .are the only ones there and they aren’t Wardens. But Ash has to accept their help. It didn’t take long for evil to come after Ash. In the heat of the battle Drum discovers he has more gifts that he hadn’t known about and is actually a warden. Drum and Ash are very attracted to each other.

I liked this story but had mixed feelings. I had some trouble with things being repeated like Drum complaining about having his life  interrupted by Ash Also there was too many villains and they didn’t last very long. I did like the fighting scenes. At times this drags for me. I liked the plot. I didn’t like Drums whining it took him awhile to man up and this annoyed me so as I said I had mixed feelings.
