Review of Death by Coffee
Death by Coffee - Alex Erickson

Not sure why it took me so long to try this series and it was really cute and fun. 

 

Krissy and her friend Vicki thought it would be fun to open up a bookstore cafe and call it Death by Coffee, after one of her father's mystery books. It was cute until a man that just left her coffee shop ends up dead and then the words rang a bit too true. Though he didn't die by the coffee it still made her feel bad and it wasn't helping them get customers. 

 

So Krissy feels that she needs to try and figure things out and gets herself in a bit of trouble that started out with Paul, an officer taking her to the crime scene. Who takes a date to the crime scene! They both get arrested by a smug officer but Paul's mother is the police chief, so they didn't get in trouble. It does peak her interest in trying to solve the crime though and that gets her in a lot more trouble.

 

I like Krissy though she is sort of living in her father's shadow she is also trying to make something of herself with her bookstore cafe. There is a major fan of her fathers that comes into the cafe and it's pretty funny. Vicki is a bit of a worry wart but I can't blame her as they were not getting much traffic into their cafe at first. We don't really get to know her much in this first one but as a secondary character I am sure we will in the future.  I must say I didn't figure out the killer in this one so I really liked the mystery and thought it was done well. 

 

Overall I thought this was a good start to a cozy series and I am always a fan of bookstore and coffee themes so this is a great combination. :) If you love cozies you should try this one!

Hurry up
Blood Guard: A Mission Novel - Megan Erickson

This new Mission series sets your heart pounding right away!  We begin with Athan finding Tendra.  Scaring her to death is only part of his charm.  He is also really attracted to his charge.  Duty must win over lust, since he needs to get her to his brother immediately to save the human race.

 

Tendra AKA "Ten" is a very personable and sincere loner.  She is surprised that she can feel such strong emotions for Athan - that is not hate.  He is very attractive, and her heart goes pitter patter anytime he even looks at her.  If only she could be his...

 

This book charmed me almost from page one.  The characters were strong, but not overbearing.  I think the lore makes people feel like vampires should be - but I am glad in this book the MC is not.  I love their story and I absolutely cannot wait for the next installment in this amazing new series!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Mature Content - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

I haven't been doing that great with reading (or reviewing when I do read) lately. But I want to make more of an effort again. So I'm going to try and put my thoughts into words for this one.

 

What can I say?

 

Megan and Santino are the perfect writing due. I get excited every time I see there is going to be a new book in this series and each book has been a hit for me so far. Each book. I am not exaggerating. I love them. They are like crack.

 

This is a lot lighter than the previous book in the series, Hard Wired, which might be a bonus for some. 

 

Beau and Zane like it rough. And sexually, they're compatible, but they do not like each other. Which is a shame, because compatible. But like every good enemies to lovers romance should have, they start to warm up to each other once they continue getting hot and heavy. Then feelings grow and they start wanting more from their relationship.

 

Both characters were great. Zane wasn't afraid to distance himself from his crappy family, but also loved his grandmother and had a great relationship with her. Beau was doing his best to recover from what his ex did to him, tried to add some positivity to the world, but was also able to admit in the end that a lot of it was forced. I loved that he supported Zane with his channel and wanted to see him succeed. I loved Zane's honesty and the fact he wasn't ashamed of himself.

 

Some amazing secondary characters here, too. Zane's grandma for the win!

 

I will admit to cringing at one particular scene and wanting to bang my head against a wall. I saw the incident coming a mile away and knew something would happen, but Lord was it brutal. Took away from my enjoyment a little, tiny bit. Not a whole lot, though, and I would still recommend this!

Strong characters, strong connections
Blood Guard: A Mission Novel - Megan Erickson
I did not know what to expect but I got an interesting ride. This is a world where vampires live among humans while a war brews between vampire clans. Athan is sexy, honest, and driven. Tendra has lived an unstable life built on moving and loss of family. With a cat as her companion, she finds a way to trust Athan and make decisions that affect her life as well as others. The two of them are a strong couple and will do anything for each other. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.
