Nine Perfect Strangers - Liane Moriarty 
Nine Perfect Strangers - Liane Moriarty

Dear book designers: a rainbow on a book jacket currently means Gay. While I support inclusion, and appreciate it, in this context, it is misleading. I get not wanting it to look girly, but I think I would have gone more in the crime vernacular. Not that it matters about selling it to me, I was going to read the book regardless, because I really like Moriarty's unusual mix of humor and crime and social issues and romance, but some people be sadly disappointed.

 

Loved the book. I was pleased that at least one character wasn't white. There were some interesting surprises, lots of story on everyone, and a very satisfying finish.

ARC REVIEW Demon's Mercy by Rebecca Zanetti


Demon's Mercy (Dark Protectors #9)Dark Protectors #9, Logan! Finally Logan and boy does he meet his match, toe to toe practically the whole way Mercy is no push over. Even as number 9 in the series it can be read as a standalone but if you want more background for this story arc you would really only have to read the one before it, Vampire's Faith. This story arc deals with one very very big bad one that has the potential to end so much but before he breaks out and spreads havak the super secret group, The Seven, that put him away in the first place must replace it's missing members and finally kill big bad. One has been filled, Garret Karys, he barely made it through the ritual and now they are just waiting for the perfect opportunity to have Logan Kyllwood go through the same ritual and hope he too makes it through alive.

The Seven are about to face a foe they have never fought before, instead of just fighting the Kurjans and their high priests the Cysts who are hell bent on freeing big bad they are now fighting the Fae nation. It's not as intimidating as it sounds their numbers are far fewer but they also have technologies and abilities no one in the Realm has seen before. Mercy O'Malley doesn't agree with the way her people are handling this, so she kidnaps Logan instead of outright killing him and tries to explain what the Seven is doing is wrong but in typical Zanetti fashion everything goes FUBAR. One touch, one bite, one sip of his blood and suddenly Logan's mating mark is burning his hand and demanding he take Mercy as his mate.

One positive thing about reading the previous book, especially the spin-off Realm Enforcers, is you really get to see what fun loving and a jokester Logan is and you get to see how finding his mate and fulfilling his destiny matures him. Logan goes full on Alpha male "Me Tarzan, You Jane" kind of moments and it's funny and aggravating all at the same time to have Mercy fighting with him almost the whole way. The whole Fae Nation is pretty obstinate and it makes Mercy's stubborn look open minded. Fucking Fae.

Overall, I really enjoyed Mercy and Logan. If you are already a fan of Zanetti you'll enjoy it and if you are new and you have a thing for a Neanderthal-ish main character and a loyal and adamant fae who's going to do her own thing anyway mixed with lots of fight scenes, a few double crosses, and some really hot romance there's a really good chance you'll enjoy this one. I have been a fan of Zanetti's for a while now and I always enjoy her writing she writes her action and suspense so well, she really know how to build the tension and her romance and sex are so freakin' hot. I can't wait for the rest of the series, Garret is going to be just like his dad and I'm anxious to find out about Hope and the rest of her story.

Mr. In-Between
Mr In Between - Neil Cross

I first got interested in Mr. In-Between when I learned Neil Cross is behind the series Luther and used to work on Spooks. While I was expecting it to be a raw story, I'm not sure anything could have prepared me for the thoroughly depressing world of Jon.

As an assassin to The Tattooed Man he kills and maims on order, without ever feeling anything about it. It is not just his job, but everything that seems to have this dark, gruesome and hopeless atmosphere. Even when he meets some people from 'before'  and he is said to re-enter the normal world, a feeling left me wondering whether he was being pulled there, or was he not pulling them with him into the darkness.

Nice is not a term to describe a novel like this. I can't even say I enjoyed reading it. But somehow it did have something interesting. However, I bore quickly from lengthy descriptions of torture and I'm not sure I would read more books by Mr. Cross.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Book Review: Hidden Agenda
Hidden Agenda - Christy Barritt

Title: Hidden Agenda
Author: Christy Barritt
Series: Smuggler’s Cove, #2
Format: ebook
Length: 552 pages (iPhone)
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis:TO CATCH A KILLER
Trusting the wrong person had gotten his father killed. CIA agent Ed Carter isn't about to repeat the mistake. Pulling a gun on nurse Bailey Williams may not have been the smartest idea, but the beautiful caretaker is Ed's only suspect in the murder. Problem is, her vulnerable brown eyes claim innocence and set off his protective instincts. The spark between them is undeniable, but Bailey could never trust her life—or her heart—to a man who thinks her guilty. But when the real killer returns and threatens not just her but her family, Bailey must place her faith in the only man who can keep them from being silenced forever…

 

Favourite character: Bailey
Least favourite character: N/A

 

Mini-review: See, I knew I was right to give this author another chance. In the last book (Desperate Measures), I gave 1 star because the main character annoyed the heck out of me if I’m completely honest. I think she used the fight or flight term for these two because Samantha is flight while Bailey is fight. I loved Bailey, she was feisty but also scared, which fit because it’s real.

 

Fan-cast:
Bailey Williams - Emma Stone
Ed Carter - Finn Wittrock

Blog Tour & Giveaway with 4 STAR Review! Hidden (Fire and Iceland #1) Megan Morgan!

Today, I am joinging the Hidden Blog Tour - a paranormal romance fantasy by Megan Morgan! Enjoy & don't forget to add the book to your shelves!

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

 

Hidden (Fire and Iceland #1)
Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy
Date Published: October 31, 2018
Publisher: Evernight Publishing

 

After a breathtaking journey through Iceland, Vanessa Evanston finishes her dream vacation with her two best friends in the capital city of Reykjavik—and wakes up the next morning on the ground, on a tiny island 250 kilometers north, with no memory of how she got there.

 

Luckily, handsome and kind-hearted local Gunnar Heimirsson stumbles upon her—unluckily, he can’t explain her mysterious journey either. Nor can anyone explain why Vanessa soon discovers “last night” actually happened a year ago, and everyone thinks she’s dead.

 

Iceland is known for its folklore, but beyond the elves and mountain trolls, there are other creatures: beautiful, powerful, and vengeful, known as the huldufólk. Gunnar has been alive for a century, trapped by their curse after angering them.

From the far flung Westfjords to the black sands of Reynisfjara, the answer to Vanessa’s missing year might be connected to Gunnar’s punishment—as well as his long-lost wife, Hera—but the truth lies somewhere in the realm of magic, myth, and love, and Vanessa has only just discovered fairy tales are real.

 

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Vanessa Evanston is missing a whole year of her life and Gunnar Heimirrson is convinced that the answer for her mysterious journey is connected to his punishment which was inflicted upon him by the huldfólk.

 

Suspense and emotional turmoil flow freely from every page throughout this thrilling story. Vanessa and Gunnar are two strong, captivating character that easily grab readers’ attentions and draw them into their story. The romance is sweet and sizzling with passion but the relationship a serious cloud over it as Vanessa and Gunnar try to unravel Vanessa’s lost memories.

 

The plot is steady to fast paced and full of suspense that really holds readers in thrall and the fascinating and powerful huldfólk are quite intriguing so the story keeps readers glued to the pages as they join Gunnar and Vanessa in discovering the truth. The story has hints of danger especially as Vanessa is determined to take on those vengeful creatures of lore. I was caught up in the story and I certainly didn’t see that surprising twist that set the whole story as well as the characters on end, but I was disappointed in the way the situation has worked out with the huldfólk so far and really disappointed that the story continues on to the next book. In essence this story is not a complete HEA romance is more of a serial romance with lots of questions being left unanswered, but on the bright side, I am hoping that we will see more of the mysterious huldfólk.
