Wicked Abyss - Kresley Cole

I was sort of hesitant about this one as a lot of people have complained about the last several. It...wasn't bad. I guess it's a matter of perspective - I'm coming off 2 years of binge reading harlequins so most anything is an improvement. :) That said...

 

A common theme in this series is the whole opposites attract - two people who are natural-born enemies or have a past or...SOMEthing that makes them fight the mate bond. Sometimes, it works, sometimes, one (usually the H) crosses the line and I have a hard time believing the quick resolutions of all their problems. The H came close - real close. I get that when they're coming from such extremes that there's going to be strife. I just wish they'd find resolution earlier than the last chapter or two. I mean really - this book is over 400 pages long. Why did it take him 'til the last 50 pages to get over himself?

 

I don't bother really rating any of this series on how they fit in the overall series - the author has stated she does a reread before starting a new one and I have yet to run into the inconsistencies that often plague longer series.

Wonderfully Wicked (The Dreamcaster Series #1) by C.J. Burright
Wonderfully Wicked (The Dreamcaster Series #1) - C.J. Burright

Wonderfully Wicked is the first book in The Dreamcaster series, and we start off with Kalila. She is an 'normal' woman plagued with un-normal nightmares. These nightmares can come to life and hurt both Kalila and those around her if she allows them. Lydon is the Black, and has come to take her to the Alderwood where she will be stripped of the nightmares. This will help his order and Kalila, although she won't survive long enough to appreciate that. His mission changes when she whispers his name, and he realises that she is HIS dreamcaster - the one he can be partnered with for life. Of course, now he just has to convince Kalila of this.

 

This is a fast-paced story, full of strong and sassy heroines, dark and brooding heroes, and slimy bad guys. It is very easy to see in which camp each character belongs. On the whole, this was a completely enjoyable story that kept my attention from start to end. The only time I got a bit confused was the jail break at the end, when Kalila seems to have a dream within a dream, and it changed from one scene to the next rather quickly.

 

An excellent start to the series, with a new and refreshing take on the paranormal scene. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading, this story flowed easily. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and I look forward to the rest in the series. Absolutely recommended by me.

5 STAR Release Day Review! Wicked Design (Wicked Brand #4) TinaDonahue!
Wicked Design - Tina Donahue

 

 

"Tina Donahue's stories are wickedly seductive, full of hot, irresistible men and heart-pounding romances." – Kathy Kulig, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author

 

Clover wants Van Gogh. Bad. He’s the hottest ink artist at Wicked Brand and makes her blood race. Trouble is, he hasn’t noticed her. She’s determined to change that. Starting with letting him get under her skin—literally. But then the tattoo consultation goes a little deeper than expected.

 

In a night of wicked hot fun, she brings out his sexy beast. Talk about a major transformation. Soon they’re sneaking into the shop after hours to play with his chair and breaking in his new handcuffs. But when their differences start to arise, she’s not sure where all this hot sex will lead...

 

Each book in the Wicked Brand series is STANDALONE:
* Wicked Takeover
* Wicked Seduction
* Wicked Times Two
* Wicked Design

 

 

Clover and Van Gogh (V) are two strong, enchanting characters that stole my heart, both vulnerable and courageous, both shy and daring, both immensely sexual and playful. They were easily related and drew me in and refused to let go until I had read every part of their story, some of which was sweet, some was so hot that flames were pouring from the pages and some was heart breaking, so the story made me feel a whole lot of different emotions throughout the story including some chuckles. Not many romances show the male heroine as vulnerable as this romance does and I it was also very realistic with the situations and events that took place, especially how someone not used to attention and suddenly getting it might react and behave.

 

Tina Donahue always brings her wonderful characters and delightful world to vivid life, so visiting with the characters of Wicked Brand is always a treat, but I might just have to say that Wicked Design is my favorite of the series. And let me tell you that I could definitely picture the ink, that V wore and the jewelry that Clover made, so I am wondering if cuffs like Clover Cuffs really exist.

His Wicked Secret (League of Rogues #8) by Lauren Smith
His Wicked Secret - Lauren Smith

 

Love is a leap of faith. It's not perfect, not always kind, but it can be the most rewarding experience of one's life. Lauren Smith gets that. That's what makes her heroes and heroines such a joy. Despite the danger to their hearts and more often than not lives. they're willing to take the risk. His Wicked Secret is a tale of danger, romance and vulnerability. Audrey and Jonathan are destined to find their happy ending, if they can survive their reckless secrets and fear of rejection. Against a backdrop of titled society and dangerous secrets is a tale of love that will stand the test of time.

Another Bad Decision book club book
Wicked Rake, Defiant Mistress - Ann Lethbridge

So I opened the book, expecting to read a few chapters last night and finished it before I could sleep, so today I'm not on all cylinders.  For sheer dint of getting me so engrosed  in the read it gets a bit more points than maybe it would have got in the cold light of day.

 

The first time Garrick Le Clere, Marquess of Beauworth meets Lady Eleanor Hadley is when she holds him up as a highwayman on his way home to the estate his family friend has been administering for several years.  Garrick has issues and stresses and doesn't know if he can trust himself or anyone around him.  She has lost the family home due to imprudent investments and now Le Clere's estate claims that there's monies owing, so they're out of their house and she needs to find cash somehow.  

 

It's a romp through their lives and there's misunderstandings, evil villains who moustache twirl and tell the heroes their reasoning and all in all it's a fun read.
