great follow up to Murder and Meyhem
Tramps and Thieves - Rhys Ford
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. Rook is trying to go straight, but cousin Harold has his damn bird. Then he find Harold dead, and the bodies keep on coming. Dante just wants to wrap Rook up and keep him safe. This is book two in the series and it would help greatly to read book one, Murder and Meyhem, first. Not totally necessary, though. And I struggled with this one and it pains me deeply that I didn't love it as much as book one!! It's well written, from both Rook and Dante's point of view, in a way only Ms Ford can tell her tales. Those throw away last chapter lines that make you go "say what,now??" And make you question what you just read, and make me think I missed something. It's messy, what with dead cousins and heads in boxes and shootings and things. Its sexy in places, with the love the love the two men have for each other coming off every page and showing in everything they do for each other. And I did not get whodunnit til it was revealed in the book. So why did I struggle?? No flipping idea. I DID enjoy it, it just took me far longer than it should have. So, because of that, 4 stars.

really great box set!
Alphas of Danger - Shayla Black,Lexi Bla... Alphas of Danger - Shayla Black,Lexi Blake,Mari Carr,Kris Cook,Anissa Garcia,Kym Grosso,Jenna Jacob,Kennedy Layne,Isabella LaPearl,Carrie Ann Ryan
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this box set. I was asked to review all ten books, however I only finished 8 so will just review those 8. Devoted to Wicked, Shayla Black. 4 stars Stuck in Mexico when her passport is stolen, Karis doesn't expect Cage to come get her. I really liked this. Cute and to the point, but with that deadly undertone that all the books in this set carry, it sets to pace for the whole set. Part of the Wicked Lovers series. Makes me want to read more. Countdown, Lexi Blake. 5 full stars! Faced with their death, watching it countdown on the bomb in front of them Ben and "Maggie" spent their last hour doing something they should have done years ago. OMG!! My favourite of the whole lot!! Did not see that coming at me, not at all. I expected there to be a positive outcome, because who wants to read a romance where they both die, but I did not expect THAT ending! Left wide open for a full book, maybe?? I certainly want to read more about these two. Power Struggle, Mari Carr. 4 stars Ten years ago, Bree ran from Carter, but now her stepfather has escaped from prison, she knows she needs him. Alpha male meets Alpha female, head on!! Probably the most explicit of the set, but I really enjoyed it. CIA Covert Team, Kris Cook. As much as I love MM, I did not like this and did not finish it, and cannot, for the life of me, figure out why! With a Vengeance, Anissa Garcia. First person present tense. Nope. The other one I did not finish. Hard Asset, Kym Grosso. 5 stars! Evan is trying to catch who is selling National and company secrets. Raine just happens to land in his crosshairs. Another OMG ending! Seriously great reading, for such a short book, it packs a punch. Not a HEA, and I NEEEEEED to read their full story! Revenge on The Rocks, Jenna Jacob. 4 stars. Gina is 12 years older than Nate. When Gina goes missing, he knows that he will do all he can to find the love of his life! Cute tale, made ME think, so gotta be good! Seducing Danger, Kennedy Layne. 4 stars Kelli catches Landon's eye, turns out she'd been watching him all along! Really great read, enough sexiness to make it HAWT, but without the danger level of the other books in this set. Enforce Her, Isabella Pearl. 4.5 stars. On the run, Ella crashes her car. Rambler comes to her rescue. OH!!! A new to me author, and this world is most firmly on my TBR list now! So close to the full 5 stars. Maybe had THIS been a full length book, it might have hit that fifth star. Executive Ink, Carrie Ann Ryan. 4 stars. Ashlynn just wants one night with her tattooed rescuer. But Jax keeps popping up, and he wants more. A fab little short, of opposites really do attract and fate will do her best to get what she wants! All in all, a great box set of Alpha males and Alpha females, but reading them all back to back was maybe a little bit too much, even for me! 4 stars for the entire set, with two standouts and two unfinished. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

oh oh oh!!
Blood Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book two in this series, and you really REALLY should read book one before you read this one. I STRONGLY urge you to read that book anyway, because Huntress Moon was a 5 star read. And so is this one!! Cara is at large, but they don't think she is a danger to anyone who isn't classed as the lowest of all pond scum: drug dealers, traffickers, prostitution ring leaders. Then the body count goes up, and it appears there is a copycat killing in the same way that The Reaper killed Cara's family. And Roarke might need Cara's help to catch him. Told again in the past for Roarke and present tense for Cara, it again gripped me and pulled me along at rocket speed in places! It meant that I had to slow down my reading, because I had to concentrate, and that's always a good thing in my opinion! Cara is still saving and taking lives as she sees fit. Roarke is now chasing both Cara and The Reaper. I loved the part that Cara played in helping Roarke's investigation. I can't word, not properly, what I feel about this book, indeed, this series, even at two books in, and you know how much that PAINS me, but I know this much: these books are pushing my reading way beyond my usual habits, and I am loving them!! I'm not totally convinced that Cara and Roarke's story is finished, even if it ended as it did. I still think there is a deeper connection for these two people that hasn't fully manifested itself yet. I might be wrong, but this is what I'm feeling and you know how I love to share what I feel! Not quite read in one sitting, that darn dayjob got in the way, but still a ... 5 star read! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

love love LOVE this book!
Huntress Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I purchased my copy of this book, via Prime Reading. There comes along, once in a while, a book that pits you out of your comfort zone. Those books are few and far between, and I really REALLY enjoy being pushed out of my comfort zone when it comes to my reading habits!! THIS book, right here! Its different and you all know how much I love different. You also know how much i LOVE getting into the mind of the bad guy, or in this case bad GAL. And you also know how much I dislike present tense books. So I'm sitting here, telling you that I LOVED this book, and here's why it might surprise you. Roarke gets his say in the third person, past tense. But Cara?? She gets HER say in the third person, PRESENT tense. And I truly loved the way the story is told! It took some getting used, flipping from Roarke to Cara, past to present but once I did, the book just flew! The book takes place over 8 days, leading up to the 25th anniversary of Cara's family's massacre. While I'm still unsure what Cara had originally planned for that date, what she DID do, and the way it played out, was brilliant. Roarke's reason for joining the FBI was The Reaper case, that he saw on the news at 9 years old. I loved the way it all came together. Roarke and Cara's story is by no means finished. Cara is now on the Most Wanted list. Whether Roarke will apprehend her, though, is another matter. He is questioning everything: about himself, about Cara, and about his career. And they have a connection that they really shouldn't have. I loved the way Sokoloff tells her story, kinda grabs you, and doesn't let go. I can't see how this is going to end, I really can't but I have book two, Blood Moon, to read next. I'd also like to read something else by Sokoloff, unrelated to this series. Because I read it in one Sunday afternoon, and I didn't move off the sofa the whole time... 5 full stars. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

enjoyed this one more than Levi!
Oscar - Bailey Bradford
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book two in the Leopard's Spots series, and I strongly recommend you read book one, Levi, before this one. It will give you a much better picture as to why Oscar is in San Antonio, and what he is suffering because of what he did in that book. I was worried, you know, going into this one. I don't much care for main characters who are late teens/early 20, and Oscar is 18 here. I don't know why, I just don't. But I need not have worried. Oscar is, as I said, 18, but he has a wise old head on his shoulders. And going into San Antonio to find Lyndon (his brother in law)'s father to make him stop what he is doing, is probably not the best idea he ever had. Visiting the club was probably a worse one, but Josiah (kinda, sorta) steps up to save his kitty. And it's clear very quickly, that Oscar IS Josiah's kitty, claws and all. Josiah is a wolf, and his wolf wants that kitty, in his life, in his bed, and in his heart forever. And Josiah will follow Oscar wherever he goes. And they go to Oscar's home. And they encounter a great deal of ribbing from his brothers! Amusing in places, heartbreaking in other, and sexy as heck in others still! Lyndon's half brothers play a part, and I'm still not convinced there aren't more that are gonna come out of the woodwork! Still too long for a hang over cure, but I think *shock horror!* I actually enjoyed this one slightly more than Levi's story, and again, not a too complicated difficult read. We meet Timothy, a cousin of Oscar's and I have his story to read next. Thoroughly enjoying these, and I hope to be able to read them all. 4.5 stars (rounded down to 4) **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
