Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the twelfth installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series, The Trouble with Twelfth Grave.

 

Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings―some corporeal, some not so much―as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.

 

Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture―the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford―out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes: Can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?


 
 
 
First off let me say that this is one of my favorite authors and series and I will never get tired of reading this story over and over again as well as the entire series that grace our book shelves.
 
OMG! Another fantastic read that was filled with so much suspense and humor.The story had a cast of unique and fun characters.Charley definitively has group of interesting friends all with interesting personalities and talents and I have to say that that we love reading about them as well.
 
Charley never disappoints she always makes me laugh and she still amazes me at the lengths that she is willing to go to protect and the ones she loves.Charley is a fiercely loyal friend .
 
I love everything about Charley especially how fiercely she loves.I love that she has a  sense of humor ,I love how she loves coffee and it is her vice as it is mine.A like seeing her doing something she was born to do and how she helps all those lost souls.The cases she investigates are always intriguing and exciting and we are always looking forward to how she solves them.What I love most about Charley is that she is always so laid back she is a god after all and a grim reaper to boot but acts almost normal or as normal as a supernatural element can act.Just down to earth as well as sweet kind, loving and loyal yet one of the most deadliest beings on earth.
 
I have to say that the story constantly kept you on edge as we were always looking for the Axe to fall.I love how Charley had faith and hope in Reyes knowing with her heart that he would never betray her or their love and always do what it takes to keep their daughter safe even when common sense tells you to do the opposite.
 
The saying must  be true that the heart will always recognize ones soul mate in no matter what shape or form and that was true for Charley when It came to Reyes.I loved how Reyes even not being Reyes at the present recognized the connection he had with Charley and how protective and jealous he was over her even not knowing  she was his wife.Reyes is sex on a stick for sure whether he is acting good or bad we still love the bad boy even when things are not what they seem.Reyes and Charley create heat and fire when ever they are together but when their intimate things are hotter than hell.No matter what name Reyes is going with he always need a good dose of Charley to keep him happy and sane .
 
I loved the story from cover to cover it was intriguing and intense and full of twists and turns and many surprises.This story was quite the page turner as I never put the book down until it was finished.
 
I love when you can connect with the characters you read about and I was able to do that  with this cast of characters as I loved them all with their quirky personalties they made this story all the more interesting.I love all the Chaos that surrounds Charley all the time as her actions and deeds make me laugh constantly through out this current tale.
 
We learned a really big secret this time around and I have to say that I never saw that coming.I was awestruck!
 
Favorite quote:
"Okay,Fine,You're  a god.How would you track and capture yourself?""I'd lure me with coffee then keep the cups coming.Trust me I would go anywhere.I doubt that would work for him though.Not all gods enjoy java as mush as I do."
 
5 stars from us
 
Another superb read from a fantastic author.
 
Goes in to the keeper pile!
 
Recommended read to all and the entire series as well you won't be disappointed.These characters are why I love reading series so much as we can never get enough I our favorite characters.

Malphas 1. Le cas des casiers carnassiers

Series: Malphas #1

 

Equivalent review in English follows...

 

J'ai trouvé le mystère intéressant et je voulais savoir ce qui allait arriver mais je n’étais pas très contente à avoir à découvrir tout ça à travers les pensées du personnage principal, Julien Sarkozy, un prof au cégep de Malphas. Ses pensées étaient pas mal dégueulasses parce qu'il ne pensait qu'à baiser toutes les femmes qu'il rencontrait. C'était ennuyant. Surtout lorsqu'il chassait Rachel. J’étais actuellement en train d'espérer qu'elle allait être une victime des casiers pour qu'elle meure et pour ne plus entendre parler d'elle.

 

Je ne vais probablement pas lire le reste de la série parce que je trouve Julien tellement ennuyant, mais j'essayerai un autre livre par Senécal lorsque je lirai Le vide avec Themis-Athena. J'espère qu'il n'écrit pas tous ses personnages principaux comme Julien.

 

 

I found the mystery to be somewhat interesting, and I wanted to find out what happened, but I really hated having to find out everything by listening to the main character's thoughts. Julien Sarkozy just...literally thinks with his dick. All the time. And judging all the characters on the basis of whether he would sleep with them and whines about how hot he finds Rachel (who I was actually hoping would die so I could stop hearing about her), and I just found the whole thing very tiresome. And kinda creepy.

 

So...I probably won't be reading the rest of the series, but I will be trying another book by this author. I just hope he doesn't write all of his main characters like this.

Book Review for Hope Whispers by Bink Cummings

Series: Sacred Sinners MC #2 
Author: Bink Cummings 
Genre: MC Romance
 
Release Date: November 9, 2017

 
 
 
 
 
Pregnant- ✔
Single mother of two - ✔
Biker best friend – ✔
Ex that’s still a D-Bag – ✔ ✔
 
New Years is the time for new beginnings. I thought I’d gotten that when I visited Texas over Thanksgiving. Then again, very little has changed. I’m still a librarian living in the same house. My daughters are growing up fast. Sure, I’ve acquired a new best friend who’s convinced me it’s time to give dating a fair shot. Which isn’t exactly easy when I’m pregnant with an Asshole’s baby. Does that complicate matters? Sorta. But there’s nothing left for me to do except move on. The jagged edges of my shattered heart have been polished. Questions answered, and blank holes from my past plugged. Now I’m ready to take the plunge into uncharted waters, to build a happier life… until a bomb comes along and tests my strength like never before. Nobody fucks with my family and gets away with it. Not even you. 
 
Warning: Proceed with caution. Contains adult sexual content, the excessive use of the F bomb, violence, and whatever else that makes it unsuitable for anyone under the age of 18.
 
Not a stand-alone, 2nd book in a Trilogy.
Must read Hopelessly Shattered previously.


 
Let's start off by saying I really love anything that this author writes she is at the top of one of my favorite MC Romance writers.Some of my favorite characters Bink.Big,Gunz. I have to say that I am also loving this new series but, I HATE reading books with Cliffhangers!I understand why the author has chosen to write this new series this way as she is giving the reader a story not rushed and complete and these main characters have a history that is complicated and she is not rushing to end their journey but, I still hate cliffhangers and this one had me having my mouth wide open saying OMG !OMG!No.......
 
I have to say that I loved the story from cover to cover and once I started reading it I didn't put it down until it was finished and at that point I didn't wanted it to end. OMG ! hours later and I  was still thinking about that ending.Now thats a great book!
 
I love when you can connect with the character that you read about and I was able to do that with this cast.I know once that happens at the beginning of the story I knew I was going to love it and I did even Ryker as I just want to constantly smack him up side his head for constantly hurting Kat.I loved how our favorites from a  previous series showed up and played a part in this current story like Big and Gunz as I just love Gunz he is just to funny.
 
This was and emotional tale for sure.A definite roller coaster of ups and downs along with twists turns with heartache ,pain and suspense.I love how the story unfolded throughout the story alway keeping you on edge to see what happens next.
 
I always pick a favorite character in a story and this time around Kat is going to be mine.I saw a different side of her this time around.She was always a strong women but, we saw a lot of her fire and determination.I loved how she loved her children with her whole heart.What a strong single parent with two kids and a baby in her belly and the mother of three from a man she can never have and never stop loving.My heart broke  throughout the story for her as she was just the sweetest person in the world and a wonderful mother and just didn't deserve what life kept dishing out to her.I found her to be loving and beautiful inside and out and had a sense of humor.I loved her fire and passion for life and most of all a wonderful mother.
 
Ryker on the other hand  I found sexy and hot as hell but, throughout the whole story I wanted to just punch him constantly and kept screaming  at him saying "When are you going to get your priorities straight and stop hurting the women you love and your family! "Ryker is a character you love and hate at the same time.Max he was a character that I fell in love with from the very beginning.Max is Kat's savior who offers constant support and just loves her 
unconditionally and we are so glad she has him as her best friend.
 
Favorite scene in the story would have to be what transpired in the doctors omg! I felt for once that Kat was put first  for the first time in a very long time.
 
Just and amazing story all around with a wonderful cast of characters to love and hate.This one goes into the keeper pile and I will be re-reading this book and this series over and over again it was just that good.
 
Recommended read to all! 
This authors story keeps better and better!
 
5 stars from us
