not quite as good as book two
Urgent Care (Hearts and Health Book 3) -... Urgent Care (Hearts and Health Book 3) - DJ Jamison
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book three in the series, Hearts and Health, but you don't need to have read the other two. I've only read one. While previous characters pop up (major brownie points from me on that one!) you don't need to have read their stories for this one to make sense. I LOVED book two, Bedside Manner, like warm and fuzzies for days. This one, not so much and I can't for the life of me figure out why! Its well written, from both men's point of view, and I did enjoy the story, how it all unfolded, and Trent and Xav deal with their history. I liked the epiphany that Trent had, after his friend died, why he came back to town, and why he wanted so badly to reconcile with the only man he ever loved. I liked that Xav (which only Trent shortened as such but I'm stealing it!) was reluctant and rightly so. I liked the way they took their time to finally consummate their new relationship. I LIKED the book, Trent and Xav and their story. I just didn't LOVE it. And it pains me, deeply, to say that because it really is a good book! so, 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

not for me.
Dangerous Interference - BJ Wane
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian. Alena goes to Blue Springs, Maine, because that's where her sister was last seen and the disappearance investigation has drawn to a halt. Randy is Sheriff and Nash, a visiting officer from Scotland Yard when the Blue Springs case has some disturbing similarities to a case in London. Alena has an impact on both men, and Alena has a powerful reaction to them as well. But the case is cold, and Alena impatient. And she finds herself in a massive heap of trouble. I have some...issues with this book. There is no discussion, I mean NONE between Nash, Randy and Alena BEFORE that first time one of the men, I forget already which, spank her, in full view of those around them. There was NO discussion about limits, about safe words or anything like that, not even after, when they were planning to attend a PARTY. Now, I'm no expert, but I read a lot of BDSM books, and the level of research that appears in those books differs greatly. Some, its outstanding the amount of research that goes into the life style and what should be expected and not. But not so here. I felt rushed into the relationship between the three of them, and I didn't much like it. I also felt that the relationship between Nash and Randy could have been developed more. They only met a few weeks ago, and I didn't feel a proper connection to THEIR connection, if you see what I mean. Also, the language used when describing the scenes between them is a little....flowery, and it wasn't consistent. Sometimes the words were explicit, and sometimes, almost Mills and Boon-worthy. I don't mind either way, but I don't think that HERE, mixing them just didn't work for me. There is no sexual contact between Nash and Randy. Had there been, I might have enjoyed it more. I'm not ashamed to say I prefer that! AND! Nash's language annoyed me, like GRRRRRRRR. Mate, luv, chap?? almost every time he spoke to Alena or Randy he used words like that. Seriously, I am UK based. I don't know ANYONE who uses those words like Nash does! I liked that I didn't get what had happened to Alena's sister until it was all resolved in the book. I had an idea, I was just wrong about how much that person was involved. Would I read anything else by Wane?? Possibly. I liked the how the sister's disappearance story was dealt with, Alena/Randy/Nash aside. I'll give them another go, if the story is not a BDSM or three way book. I did finish though, and it was touch and go for a while. I had to keep putting it down and coming back to it, reading other things in between. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

loved book three!
Hunter Claimed - A.M. Griffin
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Book three in the series, and I recommend you read books one, Dark Wolf Enterprises, and book two, Lover Claimed before you read this one. Not TOTALLY necessary, but I think you should. And just like that, we are back up to 5 stars! Hunter, cousin to the Farkas brothers, hates vampires. A rogue group killed his parents while he and his little sister, Ezie, had to watch. So when his Alpha brings in a vampire accounting firm to finally plug the leak, he isn't happy. It's their assistant though, that causes Hunter's wolf to come front and centre. Asha has only one goal: to prove that she is better than the sum of her parents, and the vampires will help her get it. Oh I loved this one!! So much better than book two, and on a par with book one. I've no idea why book two didn't quite work, but there you go. We finally get the whole story of who and WHY the vampire is embellishing and HOW they are doing it! And that's now all wrapped up in a big fat bow. Kinda. Sorta. Almost. Hunter's wolf is very taken with Asha, and their coming together is powerful. We get that sucker punch kind of feeling when they look into each other's soul. I missed that in book two. I loved the way it all played out between Hunter and Asha. I'm not going into any details, because that's spoilers. I didn't like Clarissa and what she did to Asha throughout the story and towards the end, especially but what she did, cost her dearly. Hunter's sister is now missing. For a while, I thought Ezie was seeing the Alpha behind everyone's back, but that played out differently. But the eldest brother, Andras, he still needs a story! I still think, that somehow it might be Ezie, but then there was that one line, when they all went to meet the head of the Vampire house that set all sorts of alarm bells ringing! So, please, Ms Griffin! Will the Alpha get his story and how long will I have to wait!! 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

rather enjoyed this!
Rain (A Stranger in the Woods, #1) - India R. Adams
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Those of you who follow my reviews will have picked up my teeny tiny dislike of first person AND present tense AND multi point of view. That is the worst way, for me, for a book to be written. I make no bones about my dislike, and I WILL NOT apologise for dumping a book once I discover a book is written such a way. I KNEW this book was first person/present tense going in. It came highly recommended by someone whose opinion I hold in high regard. I did not know it was multi person as well. HOWEVER!! I rather enjoyed this!! It takes time for things to become clear, and being kept on my toes is always good. That waiting for it all to come together is what kept me reading. Because I did finish this, and I DO want to read book two, River, when it comes out. Rose meets the stranger in the woods, who saves her life. Gunner is her best friend. But Gunner is more like Ryder, the stranger, than he knows. When danger comes for Rose, both males have to pull it together and keep her, and others, safe. I don't usually care for younger main characters, but Rose has a wise head on her turning 20 in the book shoulders. Dealing with her father's death and her mother's illness, and that of the others in town, takes a toll on a teenager. Ryder and Gunner, once they realise what's at stake, are great together. Ryder for all his proper-ness and Gunner for all his human-ness. Without giving too much away, I did like this, really I did. I didn't LOVE it though, but I am still left wanting to read book two when it comes out later in the year. Because there is much unfinished, undone, and now.....that....has happened, things will come to a head soon. Oh, and Ms Adams?? You made me cry. When Rose says 'I'm gonna be a mama, and I need my mama' or words to that effect. Bawled my bloody eyes out, thank you very much!! Because, no matter how old you are, you always need your mama, more so, when she isn't here any more. I didn't like the Vikes dialogue. I had to sound out loud every word that wasn't immediately obvious. I looked silly on the bus! So, a solid... 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

i love these books, I really do!
Fueled by Lust: Keos - Celeste Prater
ndependent review for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Dear Ms Prater, Could you PULEEEEZE tell me where I might find me one of these fine gentlemen?? I mean, these guys love hard, and they love fast, and they love totally. I NEEEEEEEEEEEED more of these guys in my life right now, and if I can't find a real life Insedi, then reading about them will have to do. Much love, lil ole me. Oh how I missed my Insedi boys. I read three back to back, and this one was the best of three. Keos has but one job, to keep Insedi technology from getting out into the general population on Earth. Somehow, a box got stolen, and now Keos has to tell the Emperor, and drag the thief and his sister back to Insedi. And Everly just happens to be Keos' mate. Who packs a punch for such a human female! They, all three, have to work together to get out of the game Keos puts them in for travel. I got a bit confused as to how all three of them ended up in the game, but thats a minor detail, and it didn't put me off while reading, I just let it slide. These books get hotter and sexier as they go along but you should know they are NOT stand alones. You really MUST read the other books before this one. The overall story arc continues to develop with twists and turns all over the place! I love these books, I really do. I love that some of the guys, those new to Earth speak proper and correct, with whole words and sentences, and then when they get down and dirty with their lady (or indeed, Kallon and his man) their language reverts to a puddle of goo. I said that in my review for the very first book, and it STILL makes me chuckle, ten books on!! So, all in all, a great addition to the series, and I can't see an end any time soon, especially after that ending! Cliff hanger people! This book is a bloody cliff hanger! But still... 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
