Chestnuts Roasting on an open fire....nope make that S'mores :)
Dashing Through the Snow: A Sexy, Snowy Christmas Tale - M. Leighton

 

 

What I have come to expect from M. Leighton's books is not only a stellar story but also for it to pull at my emotions and this story was no different. We have two very different people come together to give us one very Merry Christmas that will even make Scrooge enjoy the holiday. I loved the chemistry between Dash and Dilyn but that wasn't all, as a matter of fact there wasn't one this about this story that I didn't like. This story will get you into the Christmas spirit, make you feel warm and fuzzy all over, and have you craving a deconstructed S'more ;)

Great ending to the trilogy!
Dangerously Red - Kristin Miller
 
 
 
This has been a great trilogy but I must warn you to have all three parts ready to go before you start because you will get pulled in and need to know what happens next, especially with the cliffhangers of the two prior books Desiring Red and Dominating Red) in the trilogy.

How will Ivy choose between Reaper, and Lukas? But time has come and she must choose a mate. Will Lukas or Reaper come out to be the winner in this little game?
 
Kristin Miller was a new to me author when I read the first book, I happily say that I am now a fan and I look forward to more of her work.

Things are really heating up between Lukas, Ivy, and Reaper. These men are so different how will Ivy choose? Can't she keep both???? Ugghh anther crazy cliffhanger again, I need to know what Ivy is going to do so I am jumping right into Dangerously Red.

Review: "Stygian" by Santino Hassell
Stygian - Santino Hassell

"Feeling safe is nothing more than a state of mind."

Translation: if you keep staying in a hunted house for WEEKS while experiencing more than a dozen terrifying things, then your state of mind = YOU ALL ARE DIMWITS!

 

 

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Santino Hassell is a great writer, but he should stay away from the m/m romance genre.

 

How this book could even remotely be considered a romance novel is beyond me. 2 or 3 sex scenes don't make a romance if the MCs treat each other like shit 99% of the time. And so does not a weak and tentative HFN (Hassell's trademark it seems).

 

 

That being said, I also don't think that horror is this author's genre either. Because scary this was not. Predictable and drawn-out, yes. But frightening? Nuh-uh.

 

 

Unless you've never read a single paranormal book in your life, THEN this old-fashioned gothic horror story might actually scare you. Or if you're a fan of H.P. Lovecraft.

 

But to a modern horror fiction lover like me, the paranormal aspect of this book just felt outdated and antiquated.

 

So once again, Santino Hassell's great writing skills save another book from being a complete bust. So 3 stars it is, despite my complete lack of enjoyment.

Storm Glass - not what I expected.
Storm Glass - Maria V. Snyder

Unfortunately not as good as I had hoped, nor as good as the other series attached to this one, the Study Series.

My reasoning for this is mainly based on the characters, when you have friends like these who needs enemies? I don't understand how she called any of these people her friends, and her love relationships were no better. All the relationships in this book were brittle and weak and made zero sense to me - maybe I'm missing a big chunk of Opal's story as I haven't yet finished the Study Series but I doubt it. She only had a few conversations with some of the people she labeled her friends - at least on 'screen' which is all I can relate to obviously. One girl was just plain her enemy, legit out to get her but no Opal wanted to be besties - which I'll admit is a weirdly admiring quirk but I'm also concerned about her brain, maybe she's dehydrated after all that time near the kilns. Others were just bitchy and nasty but she thought of them...somewhat fondly O.o And the 2 nice one'sshe had bitchy thoughts about!!
Her love interests were just plain nightmares. I'm fairly certain she was mainly attracted to them because of how they looked, at least that appeared to be what she was focused on during the book - of course after she managed to snag one, she decided she didn't want him any more and was mooning over the other one, but couldn't give up the current one cause otherwise she'd be alone. *bangs head on hard surface*

Opal just wasn't as good to read about either. I don't mind reading about less adventurous, brave girls, someone who's more meek and quite but there was just something so.... annoying about Opal. I'm pretty sure it was her constant back-stepping, self doubt and whining. All those things are fine in small doses but I'm fairly certain these were aspects of Opals main personality, which drove me a little bonkers. On occasional she would suddenly gather up her courage for all of 2 seconds then throw a pity party for herself before anything actually happened, this process would then Wash and repeat. Plus towards the end everyone referred to her as smart and waited on her to come up with the daring and brilliant plans on how to defeat the bad guys and their crappy situation, which is just plain ridiculous. The girl is lucky for sure! but her plans almost never work, and when they might she doesn't even bother to try them due to overwhelming fear. It was very frustrating.

 

 

(There's a perfect example in the last.... third? of the book I wanted to use but can't be bothered locating. This is mainly the gist: I should do this, quick while I have the chance otherwise I'll never escape! I know I've been in this situation a million times, oh but I'm scared, what if something bad happens!! but if I stay something bad will definitely happen.... maybe I should wait for a better opportunity, No! I said I would escape when I could! But I'm scared.... oops to late opportunity has passed me by. I'll definitely take the next one, I've finally learnt my lesson!
Of course she doesn't though -_-)

(spoiler show)

 

Otherwise a decent enough story, I had periods were I was very entertained and quite intrigue about what would come next. The powers, politics, etc were a blast and I loved the whole aspect of the glass work, no idea how accurate it is, but I enjoyed it.

I'll be reading the next I imagine, in theory Opal should be different, she was less annoying towards the end of this book at least, not by a lot but enough. And I really need to re-read and finish of the Study series as they constantly refer to it in this book.
