Vex: Mythical Ink 1 by LS Anders (Review)
Vex: Mythical Ink Series Book 1 - LS Anders

First book in a new series. Different from other PNR or U/F I’ve read in the sense of how the main character comes to live among humans. The gist of it all is that Vex and his friend Lucian are banished from their world for violating some rules and they are unceremoniously sent to earth. Decades later, they decide to set up their own tattoo parlor with the help of Sevin, a shifter they have come to care for and love as a son, all while Vex is still hoping to be sent back to his own world.

I loved the trio’s relationship. They acted like a family through and through. Vex was the tall, dark, and brooding of the three; Lucian had a much more calmer personality; and Sevin while still young was sweet and flirty.


Alea is a funny, witty fairy with her own ambitions and plans. As much as Vex tries to deny the attraction that started between them pretty much from the moment they met, it really doesn’t take much for him to give in into her desire for her. Even so, their relationship blazed at the right pace, not once feeling phony or forced. Their funny and witty banter had me laughing plenty of times.


Romance aside, there was a good solid plot that kept the story moving along. That said, I felt there were a few things in the story that needed to be addressed but instead we just skipped over them. There is also the ending of the story which I thought had lots of things going on instead of just Alea and Vex as the main focus, but that’s probably more of a personal preference.

**I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.**

Release Day Review! Bittersweet Christmas (The Order # 3.5) by Nina Croft
Bittersweet Christmas (The Order) - Nina Croft

 

 

Orphan Liam Ryan isn’t asking for much this Christmas--just his Uncle John. And he’s counting on Father Christmas to find a way to make that happen. 

But when Father Christmas tosses Liam’s letter, claiming that the kid is asking the impossible, his daughter, Winter, takes over. Half-pixie, Winter, longs to do something important with her life, starting with getting a job at the Order of the Shadow Accords, the organization that polices the supernatural world. When she discovers Liam’s uncle works for the Order, it seems like fate.

Savaged by werewolves and bitten by a vampire, no one knows what to expect of John Ryan, but it won’t be anything good. So there’s no way he’s getting involved with his nephew...or anyone else. Worse, he’s getting a babysitter over the holidays. But when he meets irrepressible Winter, all that matters is whether she likes her guys to be naughty or nice.... 

 

 

Nina Croft has provided a wonderfully romantic holiday story that warms the heart while providing a thrilling adrenaline rush!

 

The Order is an exciting series full of brilliant characters that takes place in a vibrant world and Nina Croft brings it to life with well written words that grabs the reader’s attention and refuses to let go and this latest edition to the series is no exception. I fell in love with John Ryan and Winter, whom make a special love connection overcoming all odds and a murderous alpha. Nina has a way with adding special traits or characters to her stories that add a little something extra to her stories and really keep readers wanting more and I have to tell you the suspense in Bittersweet Christmas keeps building throughout the story which kept me on the edge of my seat while the romance sparkled with pixie dust and Father Christmas added his own touch to The Order as well and I really hope that Nina Croft intends to continue expanding the world of The Order.

 

 

 

 

Bittersweet Christmas is #3.5 in The Order series.

 

Bittersweet Christmas is available in ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   Kobo   iBooks   Entangled   GPlay

 

Nina Croft can be found at:

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-03-16 12:21
Unbound is an Unimpressive Anthology Even Though it had 4 Big Names in it! Here's my Review...
Unbound - Kim Harrison, Jocelynn Drake, Jeaniene Frost, Vicki Pettersson,Melissa Marr

 

Ley Line Drifter by Kim Harrison - A pixy tries to solve a mystery and gets more than he bargained for.
★★ I liked how cute it was but there was a lot of repetition.

description

Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost - Bones is asked to hunt a ghoul couple in New Orleans by its Voodoo Queen. Of course, things aren't as they seem.
★★★ I liked the darkness and that Bones was able to carry the story without Cat.

Dark Matters by Vicki Pettersson - Dark & Light come together when agents from the opposite side come together.
★ No surprises.

The Dead, the Damned, and the Forgotten by Jocelynn Drake - A vampire fights to keep her domain under her control while she is being framed.
★★ Loved the violence, for instance, check out the quote below:

The fledgling was still in the attic, chained to the wall. For a moment, I wondered if I should go up and free, but quickly shook off the thought and got into the car. If she couldn't find a way to free herself, then she would never survive in my world.

but the story lacked cohesion.

Two Lines by Melissa Marr - A glaistig does her best to fight temptation and stay mortal.
★★ I really liked the parts with the glaistig's family but other than that, the story was repetitive and boring.

Bedeviled (The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor Book 2) by Kate Pearce, Deb Marlowe, and Michelle Willingham
Bedeviled (The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor Book 2) - Deb Marlowe,Kate Pearce,Michelle Willingham

Lovely set that included sweet to more spicy stories. I loved that they all had the feeling of a stand alone yet the characters connected within each story.

In A Dance With the Devil Jane, a vicar’s daughter, thinks she’s only a companion to her friend. However as the days go by she realizes there is much to her past she needs to know. All the while a ghost tries to help our hero Devon to win her heart and protect her from harm. This story had the perfect amount of mystery and romance. I only wish it would have been longer because the hero and heroine back stories deserved more attention. This was my first read from this author but I’ll definitely be reading more from her.

Lady Tamsyn and the Pixie’s Curse was a story of second chances. Tamsyn and Gryff were apart for the longest thinking the worst of each other. Circumstances place them at the same place at the same time and they have a chance to fix their problems. All the while, Tamsyn receives a special gift that makes her see more than she wants to and believes herself to be cursed. However with the help of Gryff (and other special friends) she realizes such gift could help her defeat dark forces attempting to take over Gryff's family inheritance. Even though the magical aspect was a bit too much for me, the romance was sweet and it was still a nice an enjoyable read.

A Ghost of a Chance was a sweet and funny read. I don’t think there’s been anything I haven’t liked by this author so far. Violet thinks herself to be the dull sister that doesn’t deserve the love of charming Charlie. Edwin on the other hand believes her to be the most deserving of admiration. Charlie seems to be besotted by Violet’s younger sister, Letty, all the while Violet believes Edwin is in love with Letty. Add to that a ghost that likes to help matters of the heart but instead complicates things. The story was short but the romance and ending were plenty satisfying.


** I received a copy of this book from one of the authors in exchange for an honest review**
