Real
Future Fake Husband - Kate Hawthorne,E.M. Denning

Cole is running out of time.  His mother lets him in on the secret that his grandparents are giving the vineyard he runs to his vapid sister after she marries.  All that he has worked for will be lost.

 

Rhett has always known he is not good enough for his twin brother's best friend.  Cole is the sexiest man he has ever seen.  When he proposes they plan for their futures together, it seems like the best plan.

 

I am going to be honest with you.  I have never read either of these authors' books.  After this amazing story - that will change.  I loved this story so much I eagerly gobbled each page.  I laughed, cried, and rejoiced with these characters.  Happily, this is an amazing read that I, for one, hope makes it into the movie theaters.  So hot!  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Good Stories and Characters
In Mood Fur Love - Kate Baxter,Eve Langlais,Milly Taiden

Three hot stories about sexy shifters from a trio of today's hottest paranormal romance authors, headlined by bestselling authors Eve Langlais and Milly Taiden.

This is a shifter anthology by some of the top paranormal authors today. I’ve read stories by each author so I had a pretty good idea of their writing styles. I’m not a huge short-story person, but the authors’ names were what made me want to read this. Each story was decent and for the most part, well-paced. Milly Taiden’s was by far my favorite story. I recommend for anyone that likes these authors or this genre.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

DNF
Transcription: A Novel - Kate Atkinson

Sorry, I just can't. I'm on page 160 which is the halfway mark & can honestly say I don't care if the protagonist lives or dies. Such a disappointment as I've enjoyed other books by this author & heard such rave reviews about this one.

 

But the glacial pace, plethora of stiff-upper-lip characters & over use of internal comments in parentheses (meant as comic relief ?) are slowly making me lose the will to live. It's probably just a case of mismatch between reader & book. I'm not enjoying it & have so many other books I want to read so I think I'll just leave this here. Might pick it back up if I have trouble falling asleep tonight.

Happy
Even The Score (Entangled Brazen) (Tall, Dark, and Texan) - Kate Meader

Tess and Hunter first met when he was about to marry her best friend.  Calling off the wedding, Tess was blamed since someone had to tell Hunter the bride left.  Now, when they see one another again there is more than surprise in store.

 

Hunter had no idea the woman he grabbed before she could fall was responsible for his years of misery.  He only knew she felt like she belonged there in his arms.  Since she is an actress, she is the perfect one to ask to be his fake fiance.

 

This is a great start to a very sexy series.  The banter is really good.  The pace of the story moves along nice and steady.  The sexy times are just burning the sheets hot.  This is a great read.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

There Are Monsters... and There Are Monsters!
This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity) - Victoria Schwab

I am pretty much torn on this. There are things I like about This Savage Song, and there are some I don't. For instance, the world building isn't much impressive and although it has its own uniqueness, its not the kind that pulls the readers into the universe of Verity. There are other good points in this that I will point out.

 

Kate Harker is a Harker - a human living in a city filled with monsters. But a Harker is to be feared. A Harker controls one side of Verity with a shaky truce signed. August Flynn is a monster. He is the third Sunai of the Flynn that controls the other part of Verity. In the city of Verity, there are other monsters that lurks when the sun goes down. And the truce is about to be broken and war is imminent.

 

The beginning chapters feels like a Romeo and Juliet tale. A small introduction of Kate, why she is the way she is to prove herself to her father that she is a Harker and August, trying to fit in with the humans. When they meet, there is some thing exchange between them... until a Malchai attacks Kate that reveals some thing sinister is going on. The first act is slow and there are things I do not like how slow it can get. But after the third act itself, this is where it picks up well. It was towards the end that I thought this book ends as just one book but gave a reason why Our Dark Duet exist as the finale of the duology.

 

To me, this is probably the least like of the series. I actually didn't wanted to start reading Monsters of Verity for some months now but it did took me some time to finally pick this up and read... and took me one of the longest time to finish it. Its a different kind of approach from Victoria Schwab, one I felt she is trying some thing different. Although the creation of monsters is nothing unique, why I gave a four star rating is actually the second part of the book. It is how Victoria Schwab delivers the way she always does.
