Five Minutes Longer (Enhanced #1) by Victoria Sue 3.5 Star Review!
Five Minutes Longer - Victoria Sue

Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency.

Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.

Finn Mayer dreamed of joining the FBI from the time he was fourteen and made every possible sacrifice to make it happen, including living with his selfish mother and bullying, homophobic brother and never having a boyfriend. But his undiagnosed dyslexia stopped his aspirations dead in their tracks. His last chance is to partner with Talon, an enhanced with deadly abilities who doesn’t trust regular humans with their secrets and wants Finn to fail.

Four weeks to prove himself to the team. Four weeks for the team to prove itself to the public. And when another group threatens their success—and their lives—four weeks for them to survive.

 

 

 

Review

 

I was in the mood for a fun Paranormal read and this fit the bill.

I like Finn a great deal. Talon keeps things inside a bit too much for me but the action of the plot was good and Finn really likes him.


The world building around the powers is well done if the rest of the world is pretty basic. 

So, I love Finn, :) The romance is okay and the powers are intersting. I will read the next in the series.

Duke by Candace Blevins
Duke - Candace Blevins

I liked the story, but Gen's brother's relationship was so confusing (he had three lovers). I did some research and found out this story is connected to other books that take place in the same world and one of those is about Gen's brother. It's very unlikely I'll read these because a friend of mine, who loves author's books, told me these were hardcore bdsm novels.
This story is about shapeshifter bikers and somehow it worked. The main characters were intelligent and I liked how there relationship evolved - it wasn't just about sex. They had trust problems and of course Duke was a kinky bastard, but he actually listened to Gen and was ready to discuss things. 
The secondary characters were interesting and I would actually like to read Pebbles story. She was a tough lady.

The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston
The Unleashing - Shelly Laurenston

While reading I constantly reminded myself that it's the first book of the series. So, I didn't have to know everything about the world yet. At the same time it was quite confusing because Kera was thrown into the unknown - Vikings, gods, demons, witches - I'm quite sure I forgot someone. Oh, who cares!

I liked Kera - she could kick some major ass, but still be vulnerable and doubt herself. It was good to read about the heroine, who battled her own demons but still tried to take the best from the bad situation. And believe me, Bird House wasn't the nicest place to hang around.

There was so much hostility toward Kera. Crows were real bitches and every time they called Kera "new girl" I got angrier. She just died, which was quite a dramatic experience, and then she was attacked by some jerks wearing huge hammers. Did the Crows apologize for leaving unconscious Kera alone in the house? No, of course not, they bitched about the broken glass door. These winged freaks wanted her to decide everything right away - where to live, what to do with her second chance and so on. They also thought that having an ex-marine among Crows was something horrible. And at the same time they had bank robbers and psychopaths as members. Hypocrites. And when Kera tried to use her coping mechanism, they went nuts and behaved like immature teenagers. Crows were cruel, heedless, and sometimes plain stupid. 

Vig was the hero in this book, but unfortunately I couldn't see him as Kera's love interest. So, the sexy times were really awkward to my eyes. Vig was the person who asked the goddess to give Kera a second chance, but he didn't have enough courage to clean up and ask the woman out before she died. That's what made it so unbelievable. He had time - weeks, if not months, and he didn't make his move. And then suddenly he is a love interest. Come on!

Overall I'm a bit disappointed because I expected more. It wasn't as funny as Shelly Laurenston's Pride series. Okay, there were some scenes I laughed out loud. I'm definitely going to read the second book because as much as I can say the world has a lot of potential, some Crows were quite unusual, and the end really piqued my interest.

The Immortal Who Loved Me by Lynsay Sands
The Immortal Who Loved Me: An Argeneau Novel - Lynsay Sands

Really enjoyed this one. It was humorous and exciting. The story was still the same - vampire meets his lifemate, starts eating, dreaming about sex, having sex, and so on. But this time the heroine was really sassy and I actually liked the hero. Teenage Stephanie was a terrific character and it so many characters from previous books were present as well. It also tied up the storyline from the previous book.

Vampire Most Wanted by Lynsay Sands
Vampire Most Wanted - Lynsay Sands

I actually don't know how to rate this book. I liked the setting and the mysterious aspect of the story. The characters were likable and it was so good to read about previous main characters as well. I really enjoyed how author gave just enough clues to keep me guessing but didn't try to confuse me. After a long week at work it was just what I needed.
But there were also things that disgusted me. I don't know how much time does it take me to forget the "family picnic" described in this book. Probably a lot. The last chapter was so awful, I didn't know if I should have cried or screamed in horror. I also can't get over, how utterly stupid immortals can sometimes be. They've lived for centuries and still the baby vamps know more about life then they do.
What irked me the most was that after everything - things that took place in the camp, what Leonius and Abbadon did, we are left with a bloody cliffhanger. 
So, no rating at the moment. When I've made up my mind, I'll add it.
