GHOST SEER by ROBIN D. OWENS
Ghost Seer - Robin D. Owens

So predictable. I could have written the plot myself and I'm not a writer. The romance was strange - he liked her, he didn't, he liked her again. She let him make all the decisions regarding whether they saw each other or not which was really not satisfying. The ending was a little sappy. But if you're in the mood for a predictable, feel good, happy ending book with paranormal aspects, then this is the one for you!

The Bonding
The Bonding - J.C. Owens In this second of J.C. Owens' books we see Gaven settling into his apprenticeship with Vlar, learning how to be a Masarian warrior and how to accept the pleasures of male love. Vlar, a Finnarian, is different from anyone Gaven has ever met and Gaven is still coming to terms with male love having grown up in a homophobic society. As well, Gaven is still on the outs with his father, the warlord, and is unsure of his place in this new world he finds himself living in.

But his passion for Vlar burns bright and when Vlar finally feeds from him as is Finnarian custom, a connection neither expected is forged. But Gaven's past catches up with him just as he thinks he's found happiness and he must survive the consequences, perhaps losing Vlar forever in the process.

I enjoyed the second book of the series as much as the first but, again, the ending happened so darned fast that it left me feeling like it was incomplete. It doesn't mean I won't read the other books in the series, it just means I was left feeling a little unsatisfied with the ending.

Gaven
Gaven - J. C. Owens Guhhhhhhhh,

Okay this book was hot. The plot was interesting, the world J.C. Owens created was easy to fall into, the main character, Gaven, was sympathetic and sweetly naive. His father was/is a first class prick. Vlar, the 'love' or maybe lust interest is suitably intriguing.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The only issue I have is that the end seems unfinished somehow. An abrupt ending at an unusual juncture. Off to read book 2 to see if it finishes the story for me.

Trouble With Gargoyles
Trouble with Gargoyles: an Urban Fantasy (Moonlight Dragon Book 3) - Tricia Owens

Opens with Anne and Mel facing off against each other eating hot, spicy chicken wings. Anne did this, in part, to get away from her shop which has a curse on it. Her pawn shop is already has its "normal" curse- she has walls that drip blood, a man whose face is being eaten by maggots appears in her bathroom mirror. This particular curse is worse, and quickly taken care of. Someone is stalking Anne and her friends (or are they?).
This installment has Anne's friends too. Both Anne's snarky narration and her friends humor make this a fun book. My favorite is Mel. She made me laugh. More revelations for Anne. She learns the truth about her parent's murder. She finds a journal that her uncle wrote for her that leads to both answers and questions. Vale comes clean about some things he should have shared long ago. Be interesting to see if Anne can continue to trick a certain entity. Looking forward to seeing that entity being taken down.

Revenge of the Wedding Planner
Revenge of the Wedding Planner - Sharon Owens "Revenge of the Wedding Planner" was a rather quick, and in parts also amusing book, although some characters were just plainly unlikeable (Julie, Alexander, Emma!!!). It was quite refreshing to read about a 40-something lady, who is at times not able to hold things together as good as she wants to, because these kinds of stories mostly feature the complicated and messy lives of 20-something girls (and are getting a bit worn out anyway, at least for my taste).
