Review: Savage Skies
Savage Skies (MP3 Book) - Rebecca Cook,Cassie Edwards

Title: Savage Skies

Author: Cassie Edwards

Narrator: Rebecca Cook

Time: 07:11:20 | Pages: 324

 

I have to say I was a little underwhelmed.  I'm used to loving Cassie's historical/Indian romances.  This was good, but only just.  The characters weren't exciting and didn't draw me into the story like usual.  The writing was kind of bland and the plot was kind of stiff.

 

Shirleen is a battered woman who had initially married her husband because she believed she loved him and that he would take her away from her boring home life.  Nope.  He was an evil bastard that beat her so frequently and badly that he left scars on her back.  Years later, they have a child together and, with the fear that he will eventually being abusing their daughter as she grows older, Shirleen makes plans to runaway.

 

The morning of her planned escape, their small community is attacked by a band of renegade Comanche.  All all slaughtered save her.  She is taken captive but is eventually rescued by Chief Blue Thunder who was searching for captive warriors belonging to a band that he is allied with.  

 

Long story short, they are hesitant, but fall in love quickly.  He rescues her daughter, they marry.  There's very little drama and no "damsel in distress" trope which is refreshing, yet I was kind of hoping for it.

 

It wasn't bad, but it was kind of boring.

From New York Times bestselling author, Rebecca Zanetti, comes a new Dark Protectors/Rebels Novella…

Vengeance and revenge are the only forces driving vampire soldier Noah Siosal since losing his brother to an enemy he’s been unable to find. He’s searched every corner of the globe, going through adversaries and piling up bodies until finally getting a lead. The last place he wants to be is in a ridiculous anger management group with people expressing feelings instead of taking action. Until one fragile human, a green-eyed sweetheart being stalked by danger, catches his eye. One touch, and he realizes vengeance can’t be anywhere near her.

Anger and self-preservation are the only motivations Abby Miller needs or wants right now. Falsely accused of attacking the man who’s terrorized her for years, she’s forced as a plea bargain to attend an anger management counseling group with people with some serious rage issues, while learning true self defense on the side. Yet a man, one more primal than any she’s ever met, draws her in a way and into a world deadlier than she’s ever imagined. He offers her protection, but she finds the fight is really for his heart, and she’s ready to battle.

 
 
 
Let me start off my saying that Rebecca is one of my favorite authors as I love everything she writes and The Dark Protectors is a series that I re-read all the time.I love all the characters associated with this series.
 
This author has done it yet again this was one funny read. Omg ! we loved this Novella and its character's and I have to say that Ivar made this book down right hilarious!
 
We loved Abby and Noah as they really made the perfect couple who had amazing chemistry but , also had a great friendship that turned into so much more.For Noah it was pretty much love at first sight and for Abby lust and first sight but, honestly she could not help but fall for the big arrogant lug right from the start too.
 
We loved the plot where a bunch of immortal vampires & demons are forced to go to mandatory counseling for anger management.Well let's just say those sessions where down right hilarious but, it was also where Noah was destined to meet his mate who's life is riddled with nothing drama and chaos just like his. lol The perfect mate for an immortal full of hate and Hell bent on Vengeance  "you think ?" lol
 
Overall we loved the story from beginning to end it was fun and engaging had drama,suspense a touching romance even liked that fact that a bunch of Immortals who hate each other are forced to work as a team oh, yeah fun times that had us laughing out loud with their bickering jabs antics with one another throughout the entire story .We loved it and would love to see Ivar get his own story or see more of him because his honesty and plain speaking made him funny as he**!
 
 Well done and goes into the keeper pile to be read over and over again when we need tons of laughs.
 
Recommended read to all !

BLURB:

 

This college jock is a total player. He’s used to getting who and what he wants. Until her...

 

Katrina

 

The hottest guy on campus won’t stop asking me out. I know that sounds like a good problem to have, but this guy… this guy has no idea how complicated my life is trying to juggle being a single mom and college student. Every Thursday, he shows up at the café where I work. His cheesy pickup lines and arrogance should have me completely annoyed. I’m not. I can’t say yes, but Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

 

Joel

 

The hottest girl on campus won’t go out with me. I know, I know, that sounds presumptuous, but this girl… this girl has gotten under my skin, and I can’t seem to walk away. Every Thursday, I show up at the café where she works. She’s fed me every excuse in the book. I should give up and bang one of the many girls blowing up my phone. I’m not. Even when she says no, Thursday is my favorite day of the week.

 

 

 

 

 

The Fadeaway (Smart Jocks, #2)The Fadeaway by Rebecca Jenshak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Smart Jocks series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

Katrina is completely thankful that such a hot jock asks her out each week. Is it crazy that she enjoys it? It makes her feel pretty and helps her make it through. When he really wants to take her out, what will she say?

Joel has wanted to take Katrina out since the very first time he asked her out. The past and how they are both hurt definitely makes a difference on how they approach dating. He never gives up and hopefully one day soon......

Such a great addition to an already very charming and yet sexy series. The characters were just perfect for one another. Even with such sensitive subjects discussed, I enjoyed and really devoured each page. I am seriously eager for the next installment.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - The Betrayer (Crossing Realms Series #3) by Rebecca E. Neely
The Betrayer (Crossing Realms Series #3) - Rebecca E. Neely

The Betrayer is the third book in the Crossing Realms series, and I would definitely recommend you read books one and two first, as the characters and the storylines DO crossover.

Saying that, this book is about Curtis and Jordan. Curtis is the geeky computer Keeper - and you know I do love me a geek! Jordan is the betrayer, and yet there is so much more to her. In fact, you could even say she is the key to the Second Rebellion. I won't say anymore as I don't want to give away any spoilers. What I can say is this book is a great read!

It picks up where The Watcher left off, and the story goes along in leaps and bounds. The pacing is smooth, and not a single word is wasted. Everything is there for a reason, and it is thoroughly enjoyable. I love this world, and the characters that live there. I have enjoyed all three books so far in this series, and I really hope this isn't the last one. Absolutely recommended by me.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *
