Release Day Review! Enticed & Seduced (House of Cat #7) Shelley Munro!
Enticed & Seduced - Shelley Munro

 

 

Some days, getting out of bed is a mistake…

Kaya Ignatius loves her job, working as part of the Indefatigable crew. But this isn’t a normal morning. Gryffnn Drake, a hunky dragon shifter, has a problem with another clan and wants her to act as his betrothed. It’s a chance to smash a dry spell and help the man who has become a good friend. After all, what’s not to like about steamy sexual encounters?

 

But everything after that is downhill.

She’s slimed by a stinky plant, her brother arrives with bad news and dumps a huge, scary responsibility in her lap. Suddenly, her life is full of drama and nasty surprises.

 

Gryffnn has always lusted after Kaya, but she only saw his older brother. Now things have changed, and he has a plan to capture the sassy Kaya and woo her to his way of thinking. A move by an opposition clan forces him to escalate his romantic plan. Things proceed well until the past struts in to say hello and creates havoc with his love life and his dragon clan.

 

Never mind bed, Gryffnn and Kaya are too busy putting out dangerous fires and trying to stay alive to worry about the future…

 

Note: although Enticed & Seduced is part of a series, it can be read as a stand alone.

 

 

Alrighty, then! Kaya Ignatius, a member of the Idefatigable crew has a chance to smash her dry spell when Gryffnn Drake, the hunky dragon shifter wants her help with a problem in the sensational House of the Cat story – Enticed & Seduced.

Kaya and Gryffnn are two strong, enthralling characters with lots of explosive chemistry that singes readers in this delightfully feisty romance that has sparks flying in every direction. The relationship is in question throughout the entire story because while Gryffnn is determined to make Kaya his, Kaya is unaware of this but she steps right up in his time of need and ends up for him and his kingdom with a spirited and kick butt attitude that blows the characters as well as readers away. The story also has quite a bit of emotional upheaval as well, due to both Kaya and Gryffnn’s family issues that have come to bite them in their a**es.

 

This fast paced and really energetic plot keeps readers glued to the pages with non-stop intrigue, lots of attitude, action and surprising twists. With Shelley Munro’s well developed world, wonderfully charming characters and the impressive but realistic fight scenes, there is no way for a reader to become bored as they are easily drawn into the story by the strength of the connection that is effortlessly formed with the characters.

 

First of all, you can read Gryffnn and Kaya’s story without having read the previous books in the series, but really why would you want to do that? All the characters of the House of the Cat series are charming and love to wow readers with their daring stories and personally, I can’t get enough of this series. I have been waiting for the dragons to get their own stories and Enticed & Seduced went above and beyond my imagination. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series which features the hunky Ransom!

Amazon – http://smarturl.it/EnticedSeducedAmzn

 

 

 

USA Today bestselling author Shelley Munro lives in Auckland, the City of Sails, with her husband and a cheeky Jack Russell/mystery breed puppy.

 

Typical New Zealanders, Shelley and her husband left home for their big OE soon after they married (translation of New Zealand speak – big overseas experience). A twelve month long adventure lengthened to six years of roaming the world.

Enduring memories include being almost sat on by a mountain gorilla in Rwanda, lazing on white sandy beaches in India, whale watching in Alaska, searching for leprechauns in Ireland, and dealing with ghosts in an English pub.

 

While travel is still a big attraction, these days Shelley is most likely found in front of her computer following another love – that of writing stories of romance and adventure. Other interests include watching rugby and rugby league (strictly for research purposes), and curling up with a good book.

Reading progress update: I've read 10%.
The Complete Aliens Omnibus: Volume Three (Rogue, Labyrinth) - Stephani Danelle Perry,Sandy Schofield

Only 10% into this volume and I count 3 missing periods, 1 missing comma and one misspelled name. I just do not get it with these Alien omnibus volumes. The next time I am at the book store I'm going to take a list of the pages missing periods with me and check it against a hardcopy and see if it is just an ebook thing. I paid $7.99 for this book, I expect better.

On a roll but not the good kind
Escape from the Lizzarks (Nnewts) - Doug TenNapel

Nnewts: Escape from the Lizzarks by Doug TenNapel is another summer reading selection for middle grade readers. This is the first in a series of graphic novels which follow the adventures of Herc, a Nnewt, who is on both a literal and figurative journey of self-discovery. From the beginning, the reader is launched into this fictional world of creatures called Nnewts and their enemies the Lizzarks. There was a sense that one should already be familiar with characters and backstory. The narrative seemed to be all over the place which compounded the issue. I feel like the author was trying to put a spin on the classic 'underdog who surprises everyone to come out on top' but it was all a bit rushed in my opinion. Also, if this is a series I see no reason why the pacing had to be so hurried.  I went into this one with fairly high hopes as the first couple of pages seemed quite interesting but this is one of those books that just didn't work for me. However, I'm betting it will appeal to a younger audience. (It is after all not marketed for me so this makes perfect sense.) It will probably come as no surprise to any of you that I have no plans to continue this series but I have recommended it to some of my younger readers who like a lot of blood, guts, and gore. No complaints thus far. :-) The best thing I can say about this particular book is that the color illustrations were very imaginative but the rest of it left quite a bit to desire. 2/10

 

Spoiler: Straight out of the gate most of the characters are killed off and I feel like this was a lazy way to move the hero's journey ahead. Also, because it happened so early on there was really no emotional attachment or buildup so it served very little purpose (at least from a reader's perspective).

AVP: War
Aliens vs. Predator: War - Chris Warner,Randy Stradley

I was happy to get back to the Perry's. But this book was a total letdown. The first 50 pages were a rehash of a flashback scene from the second book, but details were changed to completely distort the outlook. Several plot points were changed which made the second book pretty much impossible. It makes me wonder if this book is supposed to be canon or not. It also doesn't make any sense to me why you write 2 books in chronological order then go back and write a book that falls in the middle but is full of continuity issues. I don't get it. At least Noguchi was still a bad ass.

Reading progress update: I've read 48 out of 200 pages.
Aliens vs. Predator: War - Chris Warner,Randy Stradley

Why are we just rehashing the Naguchi story from the last book? This is not what I was looking forward to. The last two books had so much awesome momentum and this one is just like a screeching halt into a brick wall so far.

 

I'm also cranky as fuck because I had a root canal today. It didn't hurt, but now my TMJ is all angry and I have sore spots where I was given shots. At least now I can eat and drink without shooting pain.
