Wicked Hour (Heirs of Chicagoland, #2)
Wicked Hour - Chloe Neill

I was a big fan of the Chicagoland Vampires series, but wasn't quite so sure about the spin-off until I finished the first book (which started slow).  Then I was hooked.  Wicked Hour was even better than the first book combining a group of established friends from the first book with a great setting, snarky dialog, and an interesting mystery.  What is the mysterious beast in the north woods of Minnesota? 

 

The two main characters of this series are a vampire and a werewolf in love with each other, so I expected the inevitable conflict between species to be one the author might milk for at least a couple of books.  So imagine my glee when she didn't take that trope-tastic route but instead had her two main characters act like rational adults.  

 

Where the author did skirt the line was the amount of animosity Lis was up against from the werewolf clan.  At times it felt too manufactured to be believed, although towards the end  the author made it work by turning it inward and making it about something larger than Lis's vampirism.

 

All up it was an excellent sophomore entry in a promising new series I look forward to continuing.

Audio Review: Wicked Billionaire (The Wicked Horse Vegas #8) by Sawyer Bennett, Narrated by Lance Greenfield, Kirsten Leigh
Wicked Billionaire (The Wicked Horse Vegas #8) - Lance Greenfield,Sawyer Bennett,Kirsten Leigh

 

 

 

 

Wicked Billionaire by Sawyer Bennett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Bennett saved the best for last. Wicked Billionaire is brash, sensual, acerbic and unpredictable. Declan can be a little hard to take, but the thrill comes from waiting to see what he'll do next. In Bailey he meets his match. A tough cookie with the smart mouth to back it up. I had the chance to listen to Leigh and Greenfield bring Bailey and Declan to life and the experience is electric. A firecracker.

Wicked Billionaire

(Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #9)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: August 4, 2020

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

As the prince of a luxury hotel empire, I am as close to American royalty as one can get. I grew up accustomed to a certain lifestyle. One where people give me what I desire and anything, or anyone, else can be bought. Everyone wants a piece of me, yet no one is actually deserving of my time. That changes when Bailey Robbins, the smoking hot housekeeper in one of my hotels, catches my attention. Sure, she has curves for days but it’s her smart mouth I can’t help but be intrigued by. I may have avoided relationships all my life, but something about her makes me want to introduce her to my world. The darker, wicked side of Declan Blackwood.

The Wicked King!!!
The Wicked King - Holly Black
  english review only
audible audiobook

Summary: You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring. The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked King Cardan to her and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

My review: Still going strong!!!

I just really like these books, man. Do I hate most of the characters and wish them a slow and painful death? Hell yes. But I just love the world, the writing, (the narrator in my case), And I JUST LOVE JUDE SO DAMN MUCH.

In other news. I still can't stand Taryn (where is the second short story for her where she explains her motives and shit LOL). And Cardan, I was thiiiiis close to actually start liking him and then the end happend and fuck you, dude. Go to hell.

Wicked Warden (Vicious Vipers MC Book 1) Kindle Edition by Lynn Burke
Wicked Warden (Vicious Vipers MC Book 1) - Lynn Burke

 

Wow ! An action packed story from beginning to end with a hot sexy alpha who is a little bit dark and dangerous.This story was Hot ! like fanning hot !

The story drew you right in and we instantly loved Warden's character with his alpha ways,dirty talk ,possessive nature and perhaps that he was even a little bit broken as his past continues to haunt him.

Shaun and Drew aka Warden's chemistry was hot and I have to say that the love/lust/hate thing going on between them even made things hotter.

Shaun's character irritated the crap out of me so much I wanted to smack her several times throughout the story as she acted immature and reckless and acted be like a spoiled princess without thought of putting herself in danger as well as those protecting her with her constant reckless behavior and I have to say this really irked me because her father was obvious a criminal of some sort and she had to know that that the men hunting her father and herself were just as dangerous if not more so.She Fu**** like a porn star but , acted like a child most of the time and even giving her leeway for her feelings toward Warden regarding her mother it did not excuse the rest of her actions and deeds.She was a frustrating character for me....


Overall it was a fast paced tale filled with action/drama/ love/ lust and instant attraction and whole lot of hotness. This was a first time author for us and although I had mixed feelings about some of the characters the story itself was an engaging one and I would definitely read this author again.
