ARC REVIEW In Her Sights by Katie Ruggle

In Her Sights (Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters, #1)Rocky Mountain Bounty Hunters #1, new series centered on a family run all female bail recovery business. The Pax girls, all five of them, run the business out of their run down Victorian home while their mother unfortunately lives with them, off of them is more appropriate. I so enjoyed this book, it's Katie Ruggles usual style, lots of action with romance and humor. Third person POV but it stays with Molly Pax, it doesn't alternate between characters like her previous books have. I liked that change, normally I am a noisy reader I like knowing everything but this added a certain feel to it that I found I quite enjoyed.

Molly Pax has always been the responsible one, she has been more mother to her younger sisters than their actual mother. Molly, Felicity, and Charlie mainly do the footwork as the bounty hunters while Norah sticks to research and backup, Cara helps out when needed but she's also a full time college student. Everything has been going smoothly until their mother gets arrested, again, only this time it's a big deal and she made bail using the house as collateral. The sleazebag who posted their mother's bail is now threatening to manipulate things so he can take away their house, unless they go after a particularly dangerous skip, Sonny. With no way out it Molly agrees splitting man power between finding their mother who has disappeared and finding Sonny. Molly teams up with John Carmondy a fellow bounty hunter to track down Sonny. What makes Sonny dangerous is his fondness to explosives as Molly and John find out multiple times.   


John and Molly have a rivalry going on at least Molly thinks so but John does it so he can spend time with her. Molly is paranoid and thinks John just wants to hire her or steal her skips, she doesn't believe her sisters when they tell her John likes her. Molly doesn't see it until she's working with him side by side. Getting to know him while working so closely together has her feeling going from confused to all in. As they get closer and closer to finding Sonny the more of a mess they seem to find themselves in and her sisters are having no luck in finding their mother.

Overall, this was a fun read another great read from Katie Ruggle. I loved the characters each sister has a unique personality that is sure to make their book just as entertaining as this one. You can't have a Ruggle book without a dog in this case the doggo is a great pyrenees named Warrant and he's a big ball of lovable fluff.  Book releases March 26, 2019

Details of the Hunt (Details #1) by Laura Baumbach
Details of the Hunt - Laura Baumbach

I just deleted my review without publishing it. I was about to hit "save" button, when I realised that there is not a single positive word that I can write here about this whole ordeal. Instead, here is a simple list of issues I came cross:

- 24 year old manchild, and not the fun Jack Sparrow or Tom Hanks (referring to movie "Big") type;


- 24 year old manchild who by some mighty miracle survived as a pirate and a captain to be 24 years old;


- hygiene;


- neglect. Because letting the poor boy run around in wet clothes, while dirty and stinky is neglect;


- commas. OMG, they are killing this story! Not there is much to kill, but they are the proverbial kick, delivered to someone who is already down :/

 

I really don't know how the two MCs survived; one as a pirate for as long as he did, the other one as a Hunter. Must be by some miracle/fairy godmother.

There were times when this book was a big deal and everyone and their cousin was reading it and loving it. It was such a hype! *sigh* What a disappointment in turned out to be! :(

 



PS I wish Samantha Cayto re-wrote it. After all, there is a potential here, it's the execution that's lacking :(

Splinterpoint by Regina St. Claire
Splinterpoint - Regina St. Claire

This book is C-wA_A-a-Z-YY!

Feels like Times Square, honestly :D 

 

~~~

The sheer amount of cultural references is mind-boggling.
Praetor Judy made it into this book :)

 

 

 

And I kept comparing Kol'daar to Cass (no actual mention of Supernatural, darn it!) - a bad-ass when he wants to be, but cute and adorable and kind and sometimes clueless. 

 

 

Metaaaaaahlll!!!



Yes, Ozzy made it, too! And the Dove! 



And, damn, talking about Mr. Crowley on that album!



Anyway, the story was heading for full 11 stars when things started going south around the last 20%, or after the Final Battle to be precise. Maybe during it's final half-hour, too. That's when the author quit crazy and spontaneous, turned on a drone and started explaining and over-explaining and then ex-plai-ning-to-death and then some just to drive the final nail in. 

After the report filing at the gingerbread castle I skimmed through the rest of the pages. The story got sappy and it dragged out for more than it had to. 

In the end I was left feeling a bit unbalanced. The badassery turned to sap, the unpredictable and unexplained turned into dissecting everything under a microscope. I really didn't care about the Song or Music Magic or how Nunzio's disability worked.

 

 

ALSO - The Burrito Incident. Someone specifically targeted Nunzio. Why? Never explained.

So, I am cutting 6.5 stars off for all the un- and over-explained instances and giving this book 4.5 stars.

 

Recommended :D

Damned If You Do by Marie Sexton
Damned If You Do - Marie Sexton,Kelly Martin,Digitally Imagined

Seth is a healer, but with every person healed, he himself is getting closer to death. Knowing what healing in the long run entitles, he decides to break free before it's too late. "Not so fast, brother!" says handsome black man Zed with his James Earl Jones's voice, and makes Seth stay, rending him unable to leave the circus revival.

Abaddon is a soul collector. The Hell he lives in, tho I am sure hellishly horrible, sounds pretty amusing and sometimes funny. He is buried in paperwork and is under pressure to collect souls.

MCs meet, they fall in love, they suffer, they cry, they offer all kinds of sacrifices to save the other and, I don't believe this is much of a spoiler, they live to be together. All the usual works. 

Now, angels, hippy revivals, devils, soul collectors don't entice me in any way. I read this book for a challenge in which I needed a book with a devil, and only because it's Marie Sexton so I knew it would be as good as I could get. On the whole, it was 3 star-ish for me. Once again, it's me, not the book.

BUT! Just like Abaddon found a bright soul in Bible Belt, I found a bright couple of lines in this not-my-fav-trope book.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichick did if for me. I am bumping my rating up to 4. 'Cause PATS! 'Cause BRADY! =) This wasn't just bright, this was brilliant! :D And funny :)
