Review ~ Steamy
Hungry Like the Wolf (SWAT) - Paige Tyler

Book source ~ NetGalley

 

Dallas SWAT, under Commander Gage Dixon, has shaped up to be the best unit in the US. He’s built his team from scratch in under 10 years, recruiting only those that meet his exacting criteria - they have to be the best in their field. Oh, and they have to be a werewolf. Say what?!

 

Journalist Mackenzie Stone smells something funny about the much-touted Dallas SWAT team and she’s determined to dig until she finds out if they’re dirty or pumped up with PEDs (performance enhancing drugs). She had no idea she was walking right into the wolf’s den.

 

I admit that I kinda loathe reporters/journalists and Mac is no exception. What a self-righteous prig she is. Not a fan of her, but at least she’s no shrinking violet. I love Gage and the entire SWAT team. The action is fast-paced, the bad guy is a bit too real, the steamy stuff is definitely fan-worthy, and I like the lore and humor. I’m not much on the plot device of having a woman be The One or whatever anyone else calls it. I think it’s a cop out. Blah. Anyway, other than those two points this is a pretty good read.

Review ~ Meh
Skin Games - Adam Pepper

Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.

 

This story is about Sean O’Donnell, a poor Irish-Italian kid who ends up working for a snob mob boss. Then he falls head-over-instalove for said mob boss’s daughter despite all the warnings to stay away from her. Damn. This guy is a moron. At least the mob boss’s daughter is also stupid, so they have that in common.

 

I was so close to just giving up on this one. Sean isn’t a very good character. He calls himself stubborn to a fault. Yeah, he is that. He’s also not smart. And he’s a tool. There’s also instalove between him and Nicole. Sure. Let’s believe that. Nicole is a caricature. The pretty, bratty, mob boss’s princess. She has no other identity other than this. Gag me. The whole book is one huge flashback. The best part was the ending. Not because it was the ending, but because the ending was pretty awesome. Other than that, it’s an entire book of meh filled with two-dimensional characters and clichés.

Review ~ DNF
Beach Lawyer (Beach Lawyer Series) - Avery Duff

DNF @20%

 

 

Book source ~ Kindle First

 

 

Robert Worth is a lawyer. He does lots of lawyerly stuff. In great detail. Mind-numbingly boring detail. At 20% in, I had to give up or lose my sanity. The most exciting part is where he pushes the dillweed senior partner scumbag who then fires Worth on the spot, but even then he’s completely Worth-less. See what I did there? Characters are cardboard, women are there to be berated and sexually abused, Worth is ball-less. The writing is ho-hum. I sentence this book to the outgoing tide.

Review ~ Meh
The Newfoundland Vampire - Charles O'Keefe

Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.

 

Joseph O’Reily has had a fantasy for years. He walks into his favorite hangout joint, a bar called Bitters Tavern, and there she is – a red-headed bombshell waiting just for him. When that fantasy actually comes true, Joe can’t believe his luck. Of course, there’s always a catch. He just hasn’t discovered it yet.

 

So, this wench turns Joe without his knowledge or permission and he forgives her immediately because reasons. He also figures out he’s becoming a vampire pretty easily because reasons. The villain is completely laughable and unrealistic, the plot is shaky, and the Uber Villains are looking pretty laughable, too. The editing is sloppy and there are timeline discrepancies which are irritating as fuck. This story is all around meh.

 

In a side note: This book contains song lyrics from eight different songs (Peter Gabriel, Rod Stewart, Alphaville, Crowded House {2 songs}, Blue Rodeo, Rolling Stones, & Ron Hynes). And I’d be really surprised if the author paid for the rights or got permission to use them. Huge NO-NO.

 

I’d also like to note that I received this book for review back in 2012. I notice it has since been repubbed a couple of times, the latest being January 2016. So, it may have gone through revisions that I’m unaware of.
