Tournament of Losers by Megan Derr
Tournament of Losers - Megan Derr

I am a little disappointed, I expected a grander finale, a little more groveling, maybe. But it's me. I understand the characters are beyond holding grudges, and good for them, too. For me it's half a star off.
There were some other minor disturbances, but I suspect they are my personal pet peeves.

 

Overall - a very delightful read :)

4.25 stars? ;) yeah, sounds about right :)

Beside A Black Tarn (Brimstone #4) by Angel Martinez
Beside a Black Tarn (Brimstone Book 4) - Angel Martinez,Erika Orrick

There will be more! =)

4.5 stars.
Despite an "it was dark and stormy night" opening which surprised a wtf moment out of me, yet amused Shax, the book is just as good as the previous ones.

A new character is introduced to motley crew of Brimstone: Maximilian (my favorite name!), a brave tiny bugger (quite literally) and a singer. He saves another stormy night the day and all of Brimstone crew with Heck's help. AND, I hope I am not mistaken here, becomes Leopold's partner and Shax's son-in-law. Tho for the life of me I can't figure out how things can work between a hedgehog and a millipede @.@

This installment is an opening to many more grand and not so grand, but, I am sure, just as humorous adventures. Do not miss it :D

Family of Lies: Sebastian: I've read 12%.
Family of Lies: Sebastian - Sam Argent

Was this EVER edited?  If it was, DSP needs to fire that person on the spot.

 

There are so many words in this book, but they make NO. SENSE. A bunch of notes thrown together at the last minute, that's what this is :(

Broken Prince and Mismatched Eyes by Layla Dorine
Broken Prince, Mismatched Eyes (The Mauritanian Saga Book 1) - Layla Dorine

This is the case where you try not to judge a book by its cover.
For one thing, it surely is much prettier than the story.
Another, Rhys, the blond with scary anger issues, looks seriously pregnant. Explains his mood swings, right? ;) But - no, this is not mpreg and the guy is hiding something else in his shirt. Lube? Candy? Booze? Who knows.

Please, do yourself a favor before buying this book and read an excerpt on ARe.

It goes pretty much like this:
A father wakes up his son in the morning to info-dump their family history - sorry, kid, your are a bastard child; their financial situation - sorry, kid, your grandpa had gambling problems; and the business dealings - sorry, kid, I married that bitch (she made Caden miserable for 20 years) for money to keep our trade afloat, and so you can live comfortably (NOT!), and oh, by the way, you are getting married in a couple of hours, your husband is already here.

What does the son say?

“I have never disobeyed you father,” Caden’s soft voice whispered in his ear. “I will marry the prince and do my best not to shame you.”

Darn, me ? I would be looking for some serious caffeine fix and a cold shower to wake up to make sure it's not a dream. Ok, so - that bitch, who tried to murder me as a child, is not my mother, phew! Grandpapa was a gambler? He lost our family money? Now who's the bastard? And - wait! I am getting married?

"OK, father. Your screwed me royally, but I will marry the prince, because I don't want to shame you."
