Release Day Review! Vampires in America: The Vignettes, Vol. 2 (Vampires in America) by D.B. Reynolds
Vampires in America: The Vignettes Vol. 2 - D.B. Reynolds

 

 

These are the stories in between the books, the slices of life that happen as the vampires of North America defend their lives, uncover secrets, and sometimes, simply take a moment to romance the women they love.

As always, be forewarned, there is sex in these stories. But Reynolds’s readers wouldn’t have it any other way!

 

 

As with The Vignettes, Volume 1, Volume 2 gives readers a delightful, fun and super steamy look into all the fantastic characters of the Vampires in America series that readers just can’t get enough of, or at least I sure can’t.

 

The individual shorts may be really short scenes but they pack on heck of a punch in the romance and passion department for each of the couples, they are hot and steamy as well as sweet and provide a lot of insight to our characters personalities and what goes in their lives.

 

And in this volume, D.B. Reynolds provides some extras that she previously published with various blogs such as interviews which made me happy as I missed them before.

 

As stated above, I can’t get enough of this series and the sexy vampires that inhabit this brilliant world, so I love the extras that the author provides but of course I prefer the full stories so I am waiting impatiently for Quinn to make his appearance and to find out what happens in Ireland.

 

 

 

VIA: The Vignettes Vol. 2 is part of the Vampires in America Series!

 

Quinn VIA # 12 is coming soon!

 

VIA: The Vignettes is available in ebook at:

Amazon   Kobo   iBooks   GPlay

Blog Tour w/Review - Only For You
 
 

 

Love only works when your heart is in the right place. 
Hers could be right next door…
 
 
ONLY FOR YOU
Sugar Lake #2
Melissa Foster
Releasing Dec 5, 2017
Montlake

 
Single mom Bridgette Dalton doesn’t have time to stop and smell the roses—not even in her own flower shop. But that doesn’t mean she hasn’t noticed Bodhi Booker. Her ruggedly handsome next-door neighbor would be the perfect candidate for a no-strings fling. Having loved and lost, Bridgette’s not ready to hand over her heart…but she could use a distraction.
 
Bodhi has one rule: never leave anyone behind. As a special operative, he knows that each new mission is more dangerous than the last. He’s never made a promise of forever to a woman, not even to the beautiful widow who has him tied in knots. And if there were anyone who could tempt him into putting down roots, it would be Bridgette and her adorable son.
 
But as his next deployment nears, they make a startling discovery. Their passion, meant only for the here and now, might already be blossoming into something more…
 
**ONLY FOR YOU is published by Montlake (an Amazon imprint) and won’t be available on other ebook retailers, but you can download a FREE ereader app to read it HERE, or order the paperback.
 
 
 
She wrapped her hand around his long fingers, and his eyes heated, never wavering from hers.

She’d never met a man so intense. Her nerves were on fire as she led him toward the table where some of her family members were talking. Awareness of the significance of her decision, of the signals she was sending, slammed into her, and she slowed to catch her breath. Was she ready for this?

He put a finger beneath her chin and lifted, as he’d done at his front door, gazing thoughtfully down at her. “Would you rather I leave?”

She shook her head. “No. I’m just . . . I’m good.” And she was. She’d needed that pause to acknowledge and accept what she was feeling. She was nervous, but she wanted this. She wanted him. Her smile came genuinely, and earned her one in return. “Come on.”
She became more nervous as they approached the table. Willow was practically sitting in
Zane’s lap as they mooned over each other. Piper and Talia were scoping out some guy across the room, and Ben was in a heated discussion with Aurelia. She shouldn’t be nervous. This was her normal.

Except normal didn’t usually include holding hands with a man she wanted to strip naked and devour.
 
“Well, well, well. If it isn’t the naked neighbor.” Mischief danced in Piper’s eyes as she pushed to her feet and strutted around the table in her skinny jeans and slinky little blouse. She set her hands on her hips, running an assessing eye over Bodhi.

His jaw clenched.

“Bodhi, this is my sister Piper. She works in construction and is around guys all day, which means she has absolutely no filter. Please take her with a grain of salt.”

He flashed a cocky grin. “For the record, I had a towel on.”

“For the record,” Piper said, “she wished you didn’t.”
 
 
 
 
 
Only for You (Sugar Lake #2)Only for You by Melissa Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #2, in the Sugar Lake series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading this great series in order.


Bridgette has a lot on her plate. Being a single mom is not east. She has had drama in her past, and she is trying not to make more for her son to have in the future. If only she could resist her neighbor!


Bodhi has no intention of giving in to temptation. Just because he is attracted to the sexy Bridgette, does not mean he has to act on it. He knows he cannot offer her a future, so what can you do?


This book was full of heat and fun right from the start. I loved that the hero could be more than what he limited himself to be. This was a great example that not all books have to reach for an HEA to give us one. I loved that these characters felt very real and the situations easy to relate to. This series is just so good!

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world. Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know. A portion of all my royalties are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.

Hunting Grounds
The Hunting Grounds (Hidden Sins) - Kate... The Hunting Grounds (Hidden Sins) - Katee Robert

I actually finished this yesterday but didn't get around to reviewing. And since, ironically, the guy I've been dating gave me the "it's not you it's me" schtick tonight, this won't be a very long review. I shall keep it brief. 

 

I REALLY liked this one. I do think it made a better mystery than romance but the romantic element was still there and fairly well done. The premise and the nature of the killer were fascinating and really quite original. I haven't come across a mystery solved by an FBI agent/Park Ranger duo. And really, I can't stress enough how well executed the mystery was. Compared to File M for Murder, this book was comparable with Agatha Christie. The clues were scattered well, I had to keep guessing who the culprit was, and the pay off was well worth it. 

 

Honestly there are only two cons to this book. The first, and more serious, is the ending was far too abrupt. I liked the general direction it had but it was very much so "And we're done!" I wish she had developed the end just a little bit more.

 

The other con is just the romance factor was a little lacking, as I mentioned. If you're looking for a steamy romance, this isn't the one. There are steamy scenes and all, just not as prominent as I expected from a romance novel. Then again, I don't read the genre a lot so take what I say with a grain of salt. 

 

Final rating: 4.5 out of 5. Very good book, especially as a mystery. I'd read it again.

"Undone by Deceit" by Falon Gold

 

My Thoughts...


This was quite a lovey story involving Mahogany. Majesty and Chance along with some other very interesting characters that will keep you turning the pages from the beginning to the end to see what was coming next.  You will find a lots of hilarious moments that will have you laughing out loud. It is so interesting to see these two [Mahogany & Chance] go back and forth until finally they seem to get it.  Be ready for a lots of drama, secrets and family issues that will keep coming until they get the message that they love each other no matter what all the reasons that had happened.  In the end will Mahogany and Chance get their HEA?  Well to see how well this author brings it all out to the reader you will have to pick up this well written story and see how well this it was delivered. I loved the ending!
