Dangerous Beauty
Samurai Game - Christine Feehan

3rd Reread Completed in October 2017.:

I think that Azami is one of Feehan's more complex GhostWalker heroines. She is definitely the most tortured. Like physically and emotionally. Whitney used her for experiments and operated on her repeatedly and then literally threw her away. She rose like a phoenix from the ashes, which is why her tattoo is so appropriate. I love how badass she is. Not only badass, but also very calm and soothing and has a sense of peace that took many years of discipline to cultivate. I think she's perfect for Sam.

Sam is such a sweetie. I love him. He's definitely lethal and capable of kicking butt big time, but he's also like a big cuddly teddy bear. He's so loyal. I was so glad to see he got a good heroine.

I loved how Sam and Azami connected deeply, and one couldn't even say it was because Whitney paired them. They share a history of having grown up in trouble surroundings and being adopted, and a craving for a real sense of family and home. It makes me so happy that they are together.

I like how much of the action in this book is Azami on her mission to cut off Whitney's espionage supply pipeline. She is ruthless about taking out her enemies, but I'm not mad at her.

One thing that bothered me this time as much as the last, Feehan barely mentions that Sam is African American. I would have liked more references to his skin color just as it was important to get a clear image of him in my head. I made up my own image. However, someone who picked up this book first probably wouldn't even know Sam was black.

As always, I love seeing Team One work together and joke around. I like how Feehan takes the time to introduce some characters she hadn't featured before, like Jonas and Kyle. I liked how much Ryland, Gator, Tucker, Nico, and Ian were in this, not to mention the ladies such as Saber, Lily, and Flame.

I never get enough of these book. This completes the reread of the books I have already read at least twice. Now I'm moving onto Viper Game, for my first reread.

Bidding On Love

My Thoughts....


"Bidding on Love" was a sweet cute read that will keep your attention all the way till the end.  I liked the way the story focused on Lily Taylor who after her parents had died and she had raised her brother was not looking forward to having some fun of her own.Lily was a jazz single and wanted to pursue a musical career.  In what way will meeting Diego again after a one night fling  be something that will catch her interest?  With Diego trying to heal his old wounds from a horrible relationship will he be willing to want to finally want to settle down and become a family man? I loved both of these main characters because they both seemed so very real.  It was a very interesting well written read seeing how this all came out and they both found their HEA.

My Thoughts...


What a beautiful love story that dealt with Vicki Jae Rutherford and Mayor Garrett. Who would have thought these two would every catch each others attention with them being so very opposite of each other.  I enjoyed how this author was able to  give us a relationship that from one helping  the other changes started and it was all for the better especially for one of the characters who had been a spoiled rich guy who had no respect for women.  It all starts where one will ask for help and my goodness could he be tamed from that 'bad boy image? I loved how Mayor had to work to earn the love and respect from that special person that had seem to have always had his attention.   From all of this we get a sweet love story that Vicki Jae never thought she would get especially after the way that 'Timothy Beck' had treated her earlier. Will things come together and we get a  HEA?  Well, to see how this will all come out you will have to pick up this good read to see if Vicki Jae will be able to tame Major Garrett.  In the end will Major capture Vicki Jae's  heart?

Infected: Lesser Evils (Infected #6)
Infected: Lesser Evils - Andrea Speed

I just can't seem to stay in love with this series, but I am at least saying in like with it. Once again, there are lots of things I really like here, mostly with the characterizations and the relationship building. Holden and Scott were especially a nice surprise. But, and this is a big but, Ms. Speed just can't seem to decide where to take this story. The overall arc is well done - Roan's continued evolution/downslide as a virus child and how the virus is changing/being changed by him and vice versa. Other than that though, there are a lot of things that are introduced and then just sort of get shoved aside, forgotten or rushed at the end so at least something's kind of resolved. 


Still, I'm glad I'm reading these after they've all been released, because that cliffhanger is just cruel. CRUEL I SAY!

Moondrop - Katey Hawthorne

This was cute. A high school teacher meets a dragon-shifter and it's tru wuv, though not in that creepy brain-washy meant-to-be way that tends to define the shifter genre. This could've been rounded out more, but for a short, breezy read this was nice.
