Taunt (End of The World Series #1)
Taunt (End of The World Series #1) - Eve... Taunt (End of The World Series #1) - Eve Dangerfield description

WELL WELL WELL, what a fabulous little read this book turned out to be. When I was approached to read/review this ARC I wasn't 100% sure. The apocalypse, hackers, bio-terrorists, are not usually my thing, but the blurb intrigued me. So I decided to step outside my box and give it a go, and man am I glad that I did!

This had an intriguing, well-paced (for the most part), original plot. It had interesting and well developed (for the most part) characters. It had twists and turns. It had sexy menage times. It had humor, and it was very well written.

So, why not 5 stars you ask? Well, this book is on the longer side (in comparison to what I normally read) and I found it a wee bit wordy at times. Because of that, it dragged for me in places (mostly through the middle section.) I thought a little too much time was spent with John, Seb, and Colt watching Daniel and her pulling hilarious stunts to annoy them. I wanted them to get on with the "romance" that was brewing.

I also wanted John to be more developed. I feel like Seb (as well as Daniel) were the most developed. A little less Colt, and then John. I wanted his "kink" explored more. I feel like we didn't get to "know" him as well as the others. That said, it does appear as if there is going to be a book two, so hopefully we'll get more into John (and the ongoing apocalypse baddie situation) in that book.

Overall, this was a cracking good read. With action, humor, romance, and sex. So two really big thumbs up from yours truly.

4.3/5 STARS

 

My Thoughts

 

A unique, intricate, and well written start to a three book series about a brother and sister in hiding, from what? I'm not sure…it's only hinted at in this first book.  

 

Jackson and Jillian Knight or actually Jude and Jessica Day are a smart, sexy and oh so snarky set of twins.  They are members of G.A.I.L. (Guardian Angels for Innocent Lives) and therefore they were experts in two areas:  combat and survival.  This excerpt from the beginning suggests that this story is more action than romance, but really there is more romance than action, that's not to suggest it's slow either.  The plot of this book is multifarious. 

 

While I loathe series where the story is strung out over 3 or more books, I also am not a fan of overly long books either…so yeah…I probably shouldn't complain.  This first book centers on Jillian/Jessica and has a story within a story, one that will have your feelings all over the place.  It's a little dark, a little sad, and sometimes so laugh out loud amusing.  I'm not sure why it took me so long to read this...I think I just had a lot going on in my RL.

 

Sex Factor:  Scandalously sex-plicit…snarky, naughty, and inventive too.

Last Book.
Lioness Rampant - Tamora Pierce

Rating: 3.5 Stars.

A little bummed this series is over, as it was really enjoyable, though I did feel Alanna diminished a little in the last two books. In this particular book I believe her to be of similar age as me, and yet continued to act like a teenager almost the whole way through, with epic mood sings, like I know she's a red head and everything but come on (lol - inside joke) seriously though, she was ether mad with rage, crying or blushing, sometimes all within one paragraph. It got a little ridiculous.
Over all glad I read the series, it was fun and something I can see younger girls truly appreciating, ignoring Alanna's crazed mood swings she really is a good role model.

Edge of Apocalypse (The End Series #1) - Tim LaHaye,Craig Parshall

This book could almost be ripped right from today's headlines. I found some parallels between this book and Rosenberg's current political thriller series, which I also really am enjoying. I love it when talented authors present a fictional account of real world events occurring in End Times prophecy. I will continue to follow this series.

Brink of Chaos (End Series, The) - 'Tim LaHaye', 'Craig Parshall'

Disappointing ending (if it is the ending) to the Joshua Jordan trilogy as I found myself constantly wanting to get into this novel, but could not. The book had its moments, but overall I found a mash of thinly developed characters in a lot of different loose threads that just was not satisfying. I think trying to cram too many plot points and too many characters into too small a novel is usually a recipe for disaster, and this pretty much falls into that category. Read at your own risk.
