Fury Scorned
Fury Scorned (New England Furies Book 2) - Nicola R. White

Fury Scorned book two in the New England Furies series started at a light jog and then shot off at a break neck pace. Alex the bad assof the bunch or at least that's what everyone believes. With her tats and career choice everyone believes they have her pegged but Alex will have a few things to show them.

Fury Scorned hits all the right spots. Psycho bad guys, butt kicking heroine(s) and sexy yet confused heroes. The author does such a wonderful job tying Greek mythology and characters into a modern day setting. The concept of Pandora and her box in absolutely brilliant and forces the reader to think of old mythes/characters in a new light. Mostly all who've read anything about the Greek Pantheon of gods know that they are always meddling in human affairs causing havoc in their wake. This is no different and the Furies have to sort it out before its too late.

Now, I would have loved to give this a five star rating but there were a couple of things that threw me off. The first was a romance without any heat. While reading you get to know Alex's character and her insecurities. Especially, her view of whether she's worthy of receiving love but the book was so focused on solving the mystery and the Fury's jealous nature that there wasn't any room made for the romantic portion of this book. Some may disagree with me but unlike Jackson and Tara (the hero and heroine from the first installment) who were constantly featured in scenes together, Alex and Ty were not. Yeah, as the reader you knew that they were supposed to be romantic involved but there wasn't enough interaction of the romantic nature or just both characters being in the same space. Basically, Ty seemed more of an afterthought than the hero and this is too bad because his character is a good one.

The second quirk is minor but it really got me to asking why. I suppose good writing is suppose to make the reader ask questions but anyway here it is. The story revolves around Greek mythology but the god of the underworld is called Pluto (Roman mythology) and not Hades. I wondered if this ties into the author's description of this character's political views but it was enough to make me stop reading and stare for awhile.

The New England Furies is such a wonderful concept and a really good read. A couple of quirk do not take away from the author's ability to tell a great story.

Fury's Kiss by Nicola R. White
Fury's Kiss: New England Furies Book 1 - Nicola R. White

***copy provided by publisher through NetGalley (in Bad Boys After Dark set)***

Another one that started off good, I could even be persuaded to say very good. But unfortunately, it also went downhill pretty fast. The story was too convoluted, too long, there was too much of everything going on, the characters were unappealing and sometimes downright annoying, and the ending with the big showdown ended up rather silly and idiotic.

It would've been better sticking with the motto less is more in this case.

Fury Scorned (New England Furies Book 2) - Nicola R. White

All fury’s have weaknesses. Alex’s is jealousy. Alex’s fury name is Megeara. Alex has a fury living inside her for the last six months. Tara, Rachel, And Alex are the Fury Gang. Alex is a stripper and Ty was an ex Navy Seal. Alex is outspoken and doesn’t have much of a filter.  But she can also be very insecure and needy. Ty tried to understand her the best he could .

I didn’t hate this story but I didn’t love this either. It might have helped me if I had read the first story first things might have came together better for me. But there was alot going on in this story: action, adventure, friendship, loyalty, honor, Gods, Goddesses, schemes, minions, romance, insecurities, and more in this story. But i felt there were too many characters involved in this story. It was fun to see the fury inside the woman and how they worked together. As far as Ty and Alex go their relationship seems forced and rushed at times.  There definitely was not enough interaction. But the sex was hot. This story well written and had a pretty good pace to it. But Alex was strong at times but others insecure and needy so need to be a bit more of one or the other. However I did laugh at times while reading this story. . All and all this had some things I didn’t care for in this story. Also some things I liked in the stories.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Fury's Kiss: New England Furies Book 1
Fury's Kiss: New England Furies Book 1 - Nicola R. White Furies ...
Was on the fence about this one because initially I had trouble connecting with both female and male lead. Not to mention, reading about Furies isn't my norm but I decided to give it a go. I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed. The storyline is good even if I have/had a problem with the lead characters.

Tara Walker is just a young lady working hard to fulfill some of her dreams. Then an attack by a not too bad looking stranger changes everything in an instant. Now, she must move forward with the . Tara as the the female lead took to getting used to. I found her to be a little too happy go lucky when it came to being possessed by an ancient Grecian god (of sorts). Her character kind of automatically fell into superhero mode rather quickly. Not that she's supposed to sit back and brood about it but there is something missing between discovery and full steam ahead. Never the less, the author wrote a strong female lead to introduce readers to the series.

The male lead, Jackson Byrne on the other hand is hard to like. His character is so hot and cold. He's just an a-hole times 100 but I think that is just a part of his appeal. He wasn't one of those I see you, I love you and now let me hump your leg the rest of the book kind of lead. He has the sex appeal some readers look for but Jackson's character isn't the smoldering looks kind of guy. His character's personality fits considering he's a former Navy Seal.

The really great thing about Fury's Kiss are the secondary characters. They're all good and memorable. The other good thing about the story is that it started off full steam ahead and didn't stop until the final action sequence.

Overall I give this a 3.5 rating.

Fury's Kiss (New England Furies, #1)
Fury's Kiss (New England Furies, #1) - Nicola R. White I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
This is book one in the "New England Furies"series.
Tara Walker is attacked and almost raped...but something within her at the time of the attach comes forward and she kills the man who was attacking her. This scares Tara as she doesn't know what came out of her that made her do this. Know that know one would believe her that she was attacked and that she 'changed' and killed him...she leaves the scene. Now Tara is trying to research what happened to her... along with her friends help and Jackson Bryne who doesn't believe in the supernatural but is part of the mix to solve this mystery.
