Book Review of Bad War (A Military Paranormal Romance) by Summer Cooper & Stephen Kingston
Bad War (A Military Paranormal Romance) - Stephen Kingston,Summer Cooper

Zebadiah

Vietnam has taken my friends and almost my life.

Some days, I wish that I had died on that battlefield with them, at least they won’t have to deal with the humiliation I’m about to face when I get sent home.

What’s Mary going to say about her wounded husband?

How am I going to give her the life I promised her now?

She deserves better...

 

Mary

All I wanted was a chance to see him again, to spend another night of passion with him.

That day is finally here!

The day that I’ve most looked forward to, but also the day that I’ve most dreaded.

Now he’s coming home, I’ll do everything in my power to make him the happiest man on the planet… for as long as I can… whatever it takes.

 

Author's Note: This beautiful paranormal romance is not your usual military romance! The story contains mature language and themes, intended for adults only.

Bonus books included in this copy for very limited time.

 

Review 3*

 

This is an intriguing romance story. I did enjoy the story but with some reservations.

 

Zebadiah Rasnake is a really intriguing character. I really liked him a lot. He is a soldier fighting in the Vietnam war, but after being injured he is sent home to rest and recuperate. Waiting to take care of him is his wife Mary and baby Joshua.

 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author with no expectation of a favourable review.

 

I started to read this story and was quickly pulled in. It is told mostly from Zebadiah's POV, although there are some scenes from Mary's POV, as well as another character called Cherokee Joe, who also has a part to play in this tale.

 

I felt deeply for Zebadiah as he dealt with his injuries. However, as I began to delve deeper into this story, I found myself thinking that this story is not your typical paranormal romance. It's more of a supernatural one. There are no shifters, but there are two people who love each other so much that even death can't keep them apart (think ghosts). I don't want to give too much away because there are several twists to keep things interesting. However, I did find some of the dialogue a little stilted and forced at times; it didn't seem to flow naturally. Having said that, I found myself turning the pages in eagerness to see what would happen next. The story took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. The ending was not totally unexpected, but I was a little dissatisfied with it even though it concluded neatly. My first thought after reading the book was: Is that it? In some ways this book, although entertaining, just didn't float my boat. I am sure other readers may not have the same reaction and will enjoy this book more than I did.

 

Summer Cooper and Stephen Kingston have co-written an intriguing romance. Their writing style is relatively fast paced, and the flow of the story is okay. However, I feel they need to work on their dialogue a little more to make it flow more naturally.

 

Due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature, I do not recommend this book to young readers. However, I recommend this book if you love reading contemporary or supernatural/paranormal romances. - Lynn Worton

Trapped in the Stars (Sci-fi Military Romance)
Trapped in the Stars (Sci-fi Military Romance) - Lynn Red The plot was great. The characters were decent. But the writing was atrocious and the editing sorely lacking.

Nothing was explained in a satisfactory manner. The author might as well have just said "they did a thing and life support came back on" or "abracadabra, the bad guy was dead"... I wouldn't be surprised if somebody told me that every other sentence had been removed from the book because that's what it felt like.

As for editing... Quotation marks just scattered throughout. Really difficult to understand dialogue with no quotation mark to close it off.

And the ending might as well have been a cliffhanger - not much is resolved and I haven't a clue as to what's going on with the H/h.

Wouldn't recommend. It's quite unsatisfactory.

A Very Jaguar Christmas by Terry Spear
A Very Jaguar Christmas (Heart of the Jaguar) - Terry Spear

I really wanted to love this one. There were so many great elements, but they never really came together. Demetria and Everett have a shared grief that has kept them apart - it was quite a sad beginning, which you don't usually see in a Christmas novel, and that was good. It set it apart a little. But, things change very quickly when they find an abandoned cub. Now, this cub is quite a surprise - it's beyond a surprise, but I can't give it away. Let's just say the Jaguar world will never be the same.

It was cure and well done, this introduction to something new. But it sort of took over the story. Instead of watching Demetria and Everett bond over a little cub, it turned into more of a mystery with a dash of sex. I needed more romance and feelings and denied attraction.

It also sort of bounced around a bit. At times it was hard to follow the dialog and keep up with who was doing what.

Review - Trapped in the Stars by Lynn Red (Sci-Fi Romance)
Trapped in the Stars (Sci-fi Military Romance) - Lynn Red My Thoughts - 3 out of 5 Unicorns - I liked it!! ***Received the ebook for an honest review The cover is very cool! This is a standalone book that I believe is not a series. It is for adults only due to the steamy content. It is about 170 pages. I liked Liz and Sang together. I liked this book. This world is strange and unique. I don’t read a lot of Sci-fi, so some things were strange to me. But I don’t want to even try to explain because it will ruin it for your reading adventure. I think if you are a Sci-fi Romance fans that you definitely want to read this book!

Her Rogue Alpha by Paige Tyler
Her Rogue Alpha (X-Ops) - Paige Tyler

Totally loving this series!!! Jayson is finally getting his story after hovering in the background for a little while. He's a wounded hero searching for some sort of purpose in life. Not being able to return to active duty had destroyed him inside. But Layla sees something else in Jayson, and she's determined to prove to him that he's worth far more than he think.s

I had a bit of a problem with Jayson at first. He had popped up in previous books and I quickly labeled him as whiny (then felt guilty, because he had his reasons). So I had a hard time going into this one liking him from the very beginning. Layla saw something I didn't, and I'm glad she did. While he makes some pretty stupid decisions, his need to be a "whole man" again is driving him, and I can understand that. It also gave him a drive to stop being the grumpy, woe-is-me type and get moving.

Once Jayson got moving, even though he was still not back to his old self, his determination and drive made me fall in love with him. I wish he could have had this from the very beginning. His mission is a dangerous one, and possibly a set up, but he will get the job done or die trying. But Layla isn't going to sit back and let him risk his life on his own, she rushes off to help and I loved every minute of it.

A great addition to the X-Ops series, I'm only sorry that now I have to wait for the next one!
