review 2017-02-13 16:03
missing something from first two books.
Alpha Lover (The Alpha Council Chronicles Book 3) - Brenda Sparks
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
Nicholai meets Juliette when she and her friend eat at his restaurant. He knows immediately who she is, what she is. She is his heartmate, his one true love. He just needs to win her heart before he tells her his secret, that he is a vampire. But there are darker forces at work, that could cost them both their lives.
 
And it's those darker forces I'm left wondering about!
 
Do the demons appear in books one and two?? Is there an on-going story line between the three books?? Because I'm left thinking there is, and I've not read book one, Alpha Mine, or book two, Deadly Alpha. So I'm thinking I missed something, something important, something I NEEDED!
 
I did like that the aforementioned darker forces have their say. And even if I didn't like what they said or indeed, did, you all know how much I love hearing from the bad guys!
 
I find these reviews the hardest to write, the three star ones that leave me feeling kinda meh about a book. And I'm sorry this is short.
 
Because everyone gets a say, and because I DID finish it (it was touch and go for a while!)
 
3 stars
 
**same worded review will appear on Goodread, Booklikes, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, and Barnes and Noble**

REVIEW TOUR, EXCERPT, & #GIVEAWAY - Alpha Lover (The Alpha Council Chronicles #3) by Brenda Sparks
Alpha Lover (The Alpha Council Chronicles Book 3) - Brenda Sparks
Starved for blood, vampire, Nicholai Peterhof is greatly relieved when two tourists decide to grace his restaurant, but one sip from the pretty brunette and his world is forever turned upside down. Juliette Staint-John is everything he could have asked for in a heartmate; pretty, smart, built with curves in all the right places…and totally unavailable.

Juliette doesn’t want anything to do with the handsome, young-looking Nicholai. As if their differences aren’t enough, the acute grief over the loss of loved ones keeps her heart guarded. He may be her fantasy, but that’s all he can ever be.


To get past Juliette’s defenses and in order to keep her safe, Nicholai must prove himself worthy of her love and trust. Unbeknownst to the couple, her personal demons are not the only ones threatening their relationship. Hiding virtually unseen by the vampires, Demon Royalty plots to destroy not only the couple but the entire vampire breed. Luckily, Nicholai will do anything for Juliette—even if it means sacrificing himself.

Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward
Lover Revealed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 4) by J.R. Ward (2009-09-09) - J.R. Ward

I wasn't a fan of this one. There were just so many things that didn't quite add up to me and it still bothers me. Butch seems to have been given part of the Omega - but the Omega can't find him? Thinks he's dead? Doesn't add up - especially as we find out more about how souls return and Lessers are created. I couldn't find a way to believe any of ti.

The part I did like was Vishous and learning more about his character and abilities. He's really quite fascinating. A lot of this book was taken up with characters that weren't our main couple. I still struggle with John. I just don't see him as an adult, but more of a 13 year old boy. Learning more about Rehv was amazing. I hope he gets his own story down the line - I think he deserves it.

All in all, this just wasn't the one for me. I'm going to move on and get started on the next because I think it's going to be much better, and I still want to see what happens in everyone's lives.

The Less Than Perfect Legend of Donna Creosote - I've read 41 out of 250 pages
The Less Than Perfect Legend of Donna Creosote - Dan Micklethwaite

 

"Instead of risking something that might not be any good, or not quite good enough, she had decided now to hunt down more of the books that had inspired her favourite authors, though in many cases these weren't so easy to come by.

  Time, almost inevitably, had winnowed their numbers.

  That was why she relied more on second-hand shops: they sometimes got lucky.

   And second-hand books, there was more experience in them, more history, that was another thing: there was more faith. More loyalty, as there was in an old dog. If it had been read and re-read and re-read until tattered, then it was more likely to be worth her reading as well..."
