THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF VAMPIRE ROMANCE 2: LOVE BITES
The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2: Love Bites - Ann Aguirre,Devon Monk, Jennifer Ashley,Nancy Holder,Jaye Wells,Angie Fox,Dina James,Stacia Kane,Jamie Leigh Hansen,Caitlin Kittredge,Tiffany Trent,Larissa Ione,Deborah Cooke,Trisha Telep,Patti O'Shea,Camille Bacon-Smith,Karen MacInerney,Jennifer St. Gile

Anthology. I'm kind of (90%) over vampire books but there are a few authors that I love so I'm going to pick and choose what I want to read. I don't usually do this and try to give every story a try but like I said, I'm kind of done with vampires.

I only read a few of the stories and I think overall they were mediocre. I own this book so I may come back some day and finish the rest of the short stories - or maybe not.

15. Stacia Kane - "Trust Me" I love this author - I did not love this story though. Was this a try at vampire romance set in old England? For an average author this would be okay but Stacia Kane can do a whole lot better. 2 stars. 

19. Dawn Cook (aka Kim Harrison) - "With Friends Like These". A story about two seemingly young men and when they meet one of the guy's big bad brother. Pretty good story. 3 stars.

21. Larissa Ione - "Eternity Embraced" - Lovers are forced not only to declare their feelings but whether or not they should kill each other. Good story. 3-1/2 stars

24. Ann Aguirre - "Circle Unbroken" I like her sci-fi but this story - yuck. I didn't like it at all. 1-1/2 stars

Watching Her: A Dark Romance (Keep Me Series Book 3) by Angela Snyder
Watching Her: A Dark Romance - Angela Snyder

Wowza! Jackson was just W-O-W! He was such an adorable dork with the right amount of sexiness and lots of sweet appeal. Honestly, what I loved the most about him was that he didn’t behave like an overbearing alpha and was always happy to be there for those that trusted him. The story itself was intense, exciting, and gripping. Although this is the 3rd book in the series and it’s set parallel to the first two, it can still be read as a standalone. Be warned though, you’re going to want to read the first two once you get to know Jax. 
So, despite his kinks and voyeurism, Jax has some personal issues that prevent him from truly loving someone. It isn’t until he meets strong, determined Katya, a woman with her own dark past, that he allows himself to develop feelings for someone. 
Katya is my kind of heroine: self-reliant, clever, and compassionate. Of course she could also be stubborn but overall she was understanding and was able to keep a level head at the most critical times.
In short, Jax and Katya are now in my top 5 favorite couples, and I totally recommend this book.

*** I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher ***

Western Romance
Rocky Mountain Romance (Six Pack Ranch Book 7) - Vivian Arend Rocky Mountain Romance by Vivian Arend is an entertaining read. Ms. Arend has given us a well-written book filled with fantastic, lovable characters. Melody is returning to her position in Rocky Mountain House after getting advanced veterinarian schooling. Steve turned his life around after Melody left for schooling and now wants a second chance. Their story is full of drama, humor, action and sexy bits. I enjoyed reading Rocky Mountain Romance and look forward to reading more from Vivian Arend soon. Rocky Mountain Romance is book 7 of the Six Pack Ranch Series and book 9 of the Rocky Mountain House Series but can easily be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Disappointing
Rock-A-Bye: A Gay Romance (Cray's Quarry Book 1) - Rachel Kane

The overwhelming emotion on reading this one was disappointment. I normally really enjoy Rachel Kane’s books and I was looking forward to a new series from her, but this one was just okay.

 

I found it hard to get worked up about the issues of the two MCs and while everything came together at the end in a cohesive story I found by that point I just didn’t care. The bones of the story were there but I didn’t feel the connection (between me and the storyline) and small things kept pulling me out of the story. I found I wasn’t invested enough in the characters to skim over the blips—pov issues, the MCs names got mixed up enough to make an impact, and other small things that shouldn’t have bothered me that much but poked at my brain anyway (if  because the main storyline wasn’t keeping me fully engaged.

 

This could have been a good book but, in all honesty, I think it was rushed out (I swear I only just read a new release by this author) and suffered for it. It’s a shame because Rachel Kane was fast becoming one of my auto-read authors.
