Time Waits
Time Waits - C.B. Lewis

 

I loved this one, OMG so happy to find a good time-travel romance. I love the idea of time-travel books, but it's really hard to find ones -especially in the romance genre rather than straight up fantasy or scifi- that actually handle it well. Time Waits does it wonderfully. I can see some people maybe being a little put off by the fact that both MCs (Dieter in particular) are  foulmouthed snarky bastards but it worked so well for me. I love that sort of character and here I got two! And beyond a shared tendency for sarcasm and profanity they've both got very distinct personalities that set them apart from each other and which dovetail nicely together. I loved them both and a lot of their interactions gave me a huge grin. The mechanics of time-travel are largely left unexplained beyond 'we've made a very high tech machine that does it' but the implications of time travel both moral and practical are explored in the story and create some fascinating depth to the plot. I'll be honest this one also really works for me because it aligns pretty neatly with what I've always thought seemed to make sense in terms of changing history, particularly to avert major events like wars.

I'm definitely going to be looking for more from this author, now she just needs to publish more. Preferably lots and right now.

Blood & Thunder - Charlie Cochet

Blood & Thunder - Charlie Cochet 

I'm in love with this author's style and sense of humour, seriously, she gets me completely hooked on her words. But, fuck, I hate her final chapters. Two books same reaction...

And just to be fussy, here Dex tends too much to be a Mary Sue, while Sloane is totally bipolar.

Hell on Earth (Hellscape) - Ally Blue

Hell on Earth (Hellscape) - Ally Blue

Very good action and setting. I would have preferred that the romantic part was less fluffy and at the end I would have been less accommodating with Jael & co. I continue to believe that the words used by this author to describe certain sex scenes are strange, bordering on the ridiculous. 

 

P.S. The book's cover has nothing to do with the story.

Hell & High Water (THIRDS Book 1) - Charlie Cochet

Hell & High Water (THIRDS Book 1) - Charlie Cochet 

This book is like an action flick that offers a nice plot, fun characters (I love Dex) and an original idea of the shapeshifters' genre (that I have particularly appreciated). It's great until a few chapters from the end, then everyone becomes an incompetent moron and my enthusiasm was considerably dampened.

Shield of Winter - Nalini Singh

Shield of Winter - Nalini Singh

Three stars because it's a feel good story. But this series has an urgent need for a wind-up.
