REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT & #GIVEAWAY - In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) by Shannon McKenna
In My Skin (The Obsidian Files #3) - Shannon McKenna
In My Skin is the third book in The Obsidian Files series, and we catch up with Luke who was kidnapped in book one. He managed to escape by himself, but is so very alone, as he can't remember who he is, or who he needs to contact. This was done deliberately to ensure that the 'bad guys' couldn't get any information from him, but it's left him in a bit of a bind. He has a plan to put it right though, which lands him firmly by Dani's side.
The majority of the book is dedicated to Luke and Dani, with the others only appearing briefly. However, they are all together at the ending. Luke is a wonderful combination of being literal, being naive, and being strong alpha-male. Dani is, for the most part, a strong and sassy heroine with her own issues, but I also found her annoying at times. There were times when they SHOULD have talked about things, but instead, they had sex. Lots of sex (although I don't think as much as Noah and Caro did, so that was one bonus).
The story was well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I enjoyed the pacing, and the transitions from one scene to the next were smooth. Not everyone gets a happy ending, although I am hoping for a miracle! Hopefully I will find out in a later book.
If you want a contemporary, science-fiction romance, then I can definitely recommend this.

Summer Skin by Kirsty Eagar
Summer Skin - Kirsty Eagar

May 2018: I never did review Summer Skin back in 2015 and I do feel kinda bad about that but also? I still don't have the words. All I can really say is that I love this book. I love it a RIDICULOUS amount. I love it for the romance, for the characters, for the friendships, for the Australian-ness, for the writing! OH THE WRITING.


Anyway, I had a ton of fun rereading it, here's my live-tweet thread: https://twitter.com/Rackhel_M/status/...

Nov 2015: Fucking faaaaaaaantastic. Review to come.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Regret (Under My Skin #1) by Christina Lee
Regret (Under My Skin #1) - Christina Lee

Regret is the first book in the Under My Skin series, and is a fantastic second-chance romance. Brin fell hard for Nick when he was younger, but due to Nick's 'cowardice' they broke up before things could really get started. Fast forward and Brin finds out that Nick is the roommate of his friend, where he will also be staying whilst his condo is put back together after a flood. Brin finds out he still holds a lot of resentment towards Nick, and feelings too. He is confused over what he feels, and gives Nick hell, who just seems to accept everything Brin throws at him. Brin becomes intrigued and is determined to find out more, as Nick continues to worm his way past Brin's defences and into his heart.


This story is a second chance story, with a hint of enemies to lovers, and also an openly gay vs. closeted in the mix too. There is something here for everyone, and it is exceedingly well told. Although Brin can hold onto a grudge, he is also prepared to accept people have changed. It may take him a while, but he isn't completely closed off to the notion. As for Nick, boy, that man really needs to have some therapy. I can completely understand the guilt he feels, but to hold onto it for so long, so strongly, well, it made my heart break.


With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, this was a story that pulled me in and wouldn't let go until I'd finished. Absolutely brilliant, and definitely recommended by me.

Skin Trade: Anita Blake #17
Skin Trade (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #17) - Laurell K. Hamilton


Things I liked about this book: Edward. All the Edward. He remains fantastic. It was also nice seeing Anita actually out working on a murder case for once. How quaint. Also: I quite like Las Vegas, so it was fun seeing the characters run around in Sin City.

Things that drove me nuts: Lack of editing, weird pacing, and repetition plague this book. Hearing the same phrases over and over again to the point where I wanted to start a drinking game. Also, you can't have a character insist, probably about three dozen times, that they are acting A-typically then have them continue to act in that fashion. At a certain point there's just no credibility. And then there is the fact that the pacing is downright bizarre. It starts out glacially slow as the book catalogues every detail and interaction, minute by minute, for the first 450 pages, then falls into numerous sex scenes all back to back, then has about 15 pages of final confrontation (but also, oddly, also sex) and no falling action. It was weird.

This is one of those books that needs to be heavily edited, cut in half, and to have the scenes re-ordered. There is a story in here, it just gets bogged down. It's like Hamilton was trying too hard not to write a book populated entirely by erotica but forgot how to write a mystery. All in all I didn't hate it, but it wasn't a good book by any stretch of the imagination. So yeah, shrug. I'm reading these so you don't have to. ;)
