Releasing the Demons (The Order of the Senary #1) – L.D. Rose [BOOK REVIEW]
Releasing the Demons - L D Rose

View my review on my website.

 

This might be one of the best vampire books I have read. The story behind it is different than any other vampire books I've read before. 
When you combine vampires and humans with superpower abilities - you get the hybrids that are in this book. 

There are six ''brothers'' who are vampire hybrids and they all have different abilities.
This book focuses on Blaze, who went through seven months of hell. 
His tattoos can't cover the scars he will have for life. But meeting the love of his life might make his burden weigh less - or will it?

This is a story that will bring you on the edge and make you bite your nails constantly - but it is definitely worth reading it!

Surfacing Secrets (Elemental Evidence #3) by Bellora Quinn & Sadie Rose Bermingham
Surfacing Secrets (Elemental Evidence #3) - Bellora Quinn,Sadie Rose Bermingham
Surfacing Secrets is the third book in the Elemental Evidence series, and I looked forward to reuniting with Jake and Mari to see how things have moved on for them. Mari is surfing online to try and find an answer to his 'problem'. Instead, he finds a video of someone being murdered. He shows it to Jake, who passes it on to the police, but it looks like Mari is finding it hard to stop connecting online.  It is becoming an addiction, one he denies having.
 
I thoroughly enjoy these books! It isn't just romance, there is plenty here for everyone to enjoy. I do have to say though that Mari once again pings on my radar for acting like a jerk. The addiction part I tried to ignore, as he couldn't exactly control what he was saying or thinking at the time. But he does insist on knocking Jake down all the time, even in his thoughts. Poor Jake! I love his character, and although I can see the love he has for Mari, I just want it reciprocated. I am longing for the book where Mari doesn't act like an ass and becomes the man Jake deserves.
 
A story with a dark twist, told amazingly well by these two authors. With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, it was simply Mari who jolted me. The flow was smooth, and the pacing perfect. I love the interaction between all of the characters, yes - even Mari and Jake. Absolutely recommended for those who love a bit of mystery mixed in with their paranormal.

So So Second Book for Rose Harbor Series
Rose Harbor in Bloom - Debbie Macomber

Eh. I can see why some people didn't care for this series now. It's boring. There's barely any romance. I don't need to read explicit sex scenes, but this was a snoozefest. There's some nice interactions with characters readers will recognize from the Cedar Cove series, and all that did was make me wish that series was still ongoing.

 

Jo Marie is a widow still dealing with the grief she feels over the death of her husband in Afghanistan. She's running her bed and breakfast and dealing with her rude handyman Mark. I'm sure we're supposed to think how cute he is that he's nasty and domineering with Jo Marie, but I was aggravated. Jo Marie barely seems to do anything but think about the "enigma" of Mark and his rudeness. There is another side plot dealing with her dead husband's remains and it just didn't work for me at all. 

 

Mark's not an alpha hero, he's just nasty. I hated that Jo Marie backed down from cutting him off after an argument they had. I'm sure Macomber is playing the long game of.these two getting together. 

 

Annie could have been interesting, but was boring. Her fiancee cheated on her and she is dealing with him not wanting to give her up. Planning her grandparents wedding renewla gives her something to do. Too bad they are terrible as hell during the course of this book. The nasty back and forth bewtbet them even got to me. Annie also is dealing with her grandparents next door neighbor (Oliver) declaring himself. He's boring too. There is a hilarious scene where Annie's former fiancee and Oliver threaten to kick each other's butt with judo, and I seriously choked on water and spewed all over. I maybe started singing everyone was Kung Fu fighting. Yes, I know judo and Kung Fu are not the same style. 

 

Mary had a potentially interesting storyline until Macomber backed away from her having an abortion. Yes we have another secret child romance plot. I cannot take how ridiculous and unrealistic this storyline was from beginning to end. There is also the not subtle warning that woman who want a career and are not motherly will get cancer one day. Mary's so called love of her love George was too perfect and also boring. 

 

The writing was just so-so. Trying to juggle three plotlines shows. Nothing hangs together besides all three women being connected to the inn (Annie and Mary are guests there) and their storylines are all over the place. I will say each women had a distinct voice. I think Jo Marie's voice is too old for her though. No one her supposed age speaks like she does (she's written as a women in her 50s). 

 

The setting of Cedar Cove is one Macomber's fans love. I just wish I got more scenes at some of the favorite haunts which is the only reason why I'm giving this book three stars. Mary goes to the tearoom, there is mention of the lighthouse which was nice. We get sightings of Olivia, Jack, Faith, Grace, etc. All of them popping up in this book just made me miss the Cedar Cove series more.

 

The ending just sets up things for the next book in the series (we have two women calling about being guests).
