Excellent End to an Excellent Series
New Moon (Moon Series Book 8) - Lisa Kessler

Jaguar shifter Sebastian Severino is a loner. Having been his father’s assassin for years, he trusts nobody and nobody trusts him.  Isabelle Wood is a wolf shifter and a bounty hunter. She’s determined to take down the evil organization that was responsible for her father’s death, starting with it’s crown prince. When her wolf claims him as her mate while her knife is at his throat, she can’t bring herself to kill him even as she denies what her wolf is telling her.

This is the final book in Lisa Kessler’s Moon series and I think it’s my favorite. I simply fell in love with Sebastian and Isabelle. They book had to go through so much to find family and love in the end, especially Sebastian. It makes me sad that this is the last of a great series. A great book. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

[REVIEW] Marrying Winterbourne by Lisa Kleypas
Marrying Winterborne - Lisa Kleypas

A much better book than the first, Winterborne and Helen are a delightful pair. I think Helen is one of my favorite heroines. She is kind, intelligent, sensitive and a delightful sweetheart. She's decisively not annoying which is a big yay for me. Rhys Winterborne got on my nerves on the first book by the end but he's truly a charming man. His chemistry with Helen is off the charts and it is clear to us from the very beginning, a vast improvement from the previous book.

Why not a full five stars? Some sex scenes, in my opinion, could not be enjoyed because I was just too upset about the secret Helen was keeping from Winterborne. I understand her reasoning for not saying anything but damn, I needed her to speak up. The end got solved real quickly but at that point, I just wanted them together for good.

[REVIEW] Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas
Cold-Hearted Rake - Lisa Kleypas

My review got chewed up by GoodReads. The pain is real.

The short version: if you can get past the first 100 lackluster pages and lower your expectations, the book isn't too terrible. I hated the hero and the heroine for a good measure of the book. They didn't have an ounce of chemistry for those first 100 pages. Hell, the heroine had more chemistry with her horse than with the hero. They fall in love completely out of nowhere. While the sexual chemistry appears late in the game, it is there and it is pretty steamy.

The secondary characters (West is the best, Helen is a sweetheart and Hamlet is so cute) save the book from being a total disaster.

The book felt like a giant prequel for the second book, with the main couple at times taking a backseat to Helen and Winterborne. After what Winterborne did near the end, I have my reservations about him, but because I am trash, I'm reading the second book.

Book Review For: New Moon by Lisa Kessler
New Moon (Moon Series Book 8) - Lisa Kessler
New Moon (Moon #8)New Moon by Lisa Kessler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'New Moon' by Lisa Kessler is book 8 in the "Moon" series. This is the story of Sebastian Severino and Isabelle Wood. I have read the last few books in this series but feel this can be a standalone book.
Isabelle is looking for answers in the death of her father and she thinks Sebastian's father might be the one to have been involved. So she attempts to attack him to get those answers but her inter wolf won't let her. Isabelle's inter wolf recognizes him as her mate. Sebastian doesn't approve of his father and his actions, so he is always trying to be a step ahead of him. Isabelle's father was actually a mentor for Sebastian and he cared about him allot. Sebastian tries to stay alone and not connected to people because of the tragedies in his life with the lost of loved ones. But Isabelle is calling to all his protective needs and he is fighting his feelings for her. But these two can't fight their feelings for long!

Midnight Angel
Midnight Angel - Lisa Kleypas

If you liked this book.....don't read this. Rant ahead. You have been warned.
Taisa was found guilty of a murder she has no memory of. Sentenced to death, she manages to fake her death and travels to England to take refuge with her cousin and her husband. She finds employment with a friend of theirs as a governess to his 12 year old daughter.
I love LK books. This sounded like my cup of tea. Well, this sucked ass instead and I found myself still reading. It was like that car accident that everyone slows down to look at, because you can't not look at it!
My complaints:
Their ages. I was fine when I thought she was 22 to his 34. Then I find out she's really 18 and her closeness in age to Emma (Luke's daughter) is brought up. A lot. I wasn't crazy about reading about the hero having sex with someone else. I didn't believe in their romance. At about 20% in and they don't like each other to about 40% in and they are in love. Give. Me. A. Break!
I HATED Luke. He is mean, inconsiderate, stupid (there's still a kidnapping!), and overall Alpha-asshole. This is a description of his for Taisa: "She was sly, mysterious, haughty....all the qualities of a car. He hated cats." There's the confrontation with Tasia when he dismisses Nan for getting pregnant- but the baby daddy gets to keep his job. "Luke strode around his desk with a snarl, catching the front of her bodice in his large hand. She gave a whimper of fear. Luke shook her briefly, like a dog with a rat. You obey me without question." It goes on to say how turned on he gets holding Tasia off the ground. "There was a responsive ache in his groin....."
Then there is this before the fall in lust (oops, I mean love). "He had deliberately ignored her. Beneath his cool self-possession there had been something tightly reined and threatening."
Then (yes there's more) the threat of assault and rape: "I'm coming to your room tonight," he said after one particularly heated episode..." "I'll lock the door." I'll break it down." and this towards the end: "I'll tough you whenever and however I want," Luke said harshly. "Don't push me too far, Tasia...or you'll regret it." "He won't beat me," Tasia said, though privately she had her doubts." Luke's a catch don't you think?
The best thing about this book was Emma. I read some reviews for her book and I'm not going to read it since I think I will have similar issues with it. I won't be reading LK's earlier books. This sucked ass.
