No Interest in Love
No Interest In Love: An All About Love Novel - Cassie Mae

I received this book from Netgalley, but overlooked that it's the second book in the series when I requested it. That being said it acted as it's own standalone book for the most part, which was nice. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read the first book and got to see the characters from another view point. The book is told from the point of view of Jace (an actor), the arrogant player type who slowly comes around.

Jace lands an audition for an upcoming movie with a big celebrity and his agent Shay (all business and a case of bad luck) is tasked with getting him there. This opportunity is everything they want, the chance for Jace to make a name for himself, and Shay's opportunity to be taken seriously and maybe even get a promotion. Though as the trip pushes on they find the chemistry between them slowly start to blossom. Jace is left with a choice to either risk his dream and follow his heart, or grab his dream and risk what his heart desires.

I thought the book was well written, but unfortunately I've read too many books with the same romantic themed plot (arrogant player falls for innocent girl etc. etc.), and I started to lose interest halfway through. I did like that his history with Shay is written out like an actor's script, it gave the story more personality. Overall it was a cute story, with a somewhat predictable plot.

The Clairvoyant's Glasses
The Clairvoyant's Glasses - Helen Goltz

This story was an enjoyable read. The quality of writing was very good and relatable, I loved that there were pieces of history mentioned throughout the story, it made everything feel more real. The characters had a lot of personality, which is always a plus. The main character (Sophie) started out superficial and greedy and slowly grew to a more respectable person (which I was thankful for, as disliking a main character can ruin the book).

However, I didn't quite understand why Sophie was so quick to forgive and forget that Daniel (pretty much a stranger) used and lied to her, she was barely upset at all. Her parents weren't mentioned much, which left me with questions.

(spoiler show)

I excused the predictability of the book, seeing as it's the first book in the series (I have high hopes for this series). Despite a slow and predictable start, I look forward to reading more and learning what happens next!

Night Huntress Series
Halfway to the Grave - Jeaniene Frost
One Foot in the Grave - Jeaniene Frost
At Grave's End - Jeaniene Frost
Destined for an Early Grave - Jeaniene Frost
This Side of the Grave - Jeaniene Frost
One Grave at a Time - Jeaniene Frost
Up From the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

I'm reviewing the series itself here (no spoilers). I read the entire series, and I have to say that it almost instantly became my favorite series of it's genre! I fell in love with both Cat and Bones right away. Cat is such a badass, and Bones is pretty much the prefect man in my eyes. All of the characters have such depth to their personalities, the story lines are always interesting, and the dialog is witty, sexy, and full of the right amount of attitude. I got pulled into their world, I was anxious, excited, laughing out loud. I couldn't put the books down, the only thing it left me wanting was more, which of course Jeaniene Frost delivered beautifully! Halfway to the Grave is wonderful, though I see it as an introduction, the story line definitely gets better. I go back all the time and reread certain parts from each of the books because they were so well written that I want to experience those parts again. The sex scenes were done well, and there were few enough of them that it didn't turn the books into some cheesy erotic novels. I recommend the series all the time to anyone who likes vampires and adult romance.

Kismet Knight, Ph.D., Vampire Psychologist series
The Vampire Shrink - Lynda Hilburn

I really liked this series (what I read of it). The story line was very original and creative. To the average person I think the psychologist part may be viewed as a bit cheesy (and at times it was tolerably cheesy), but to someone (such as myself) who loves psychology it makes for an interesting twist. I did have trouble finding some of the books either at the library or book stores which was a bit of a turn off. Despite that little hang up, what I did read of the series was interesting, original, romantic, and tolerably cheesy. I would recommend it to anyone into psychology, vampires, romance, and able to handle a little cheese.
