4.5 Out of 5 "Angelkins" Stars
White Trash Zombie Gone Wild - Audible Studios, Allison McLemore,Diana Rowland

~MY THOUGHTS~

 

This is my favorite book of the series since the first one.  A lot more action and less slow-boring time.  It was a little tedious in the beginning when she was abusing the V-12 (not sure if that is correct spelling…{{{because of audio}}}.  It quickly moves from that into some action complete with some angel-style ass-kicking. 

 

Alison McLemore brings Angel and her southern twang to life.  I totally recommend audio for this series…even if you've been reading them so far because she sounds exactly like I think Angel should.  If an audiobook can be pitch perfect…this would be that.

Jack Reacher got dumped and found a case
The Midnight Line - Lee Child

Jack Reacher got dumped by a woman. The drifter lifestyle is not for everyone. 

 

It seems pointless. But a lot of things is really pointless.

 

Reacher came crossed a West Point ring and used his usual persuasive method to get to know where it came from. 

A person has to go through a lot to get that ring. It is important to a person and shouldn't be given up that easy.

 

So it is either a stolen ring that needs to go back to its owner, or this person is in serious trouble and have to give up her ring. 

 

So he went and chase after whoever this ring belonged to.

 

He first find a drug dealer. 

 

Then the drug dealer pointed him to another person Sy. 

 

Turned out Sy was dead long ago. It is just for the drug dealer to put a hit on Reacher. 

 

He survived, of course. 

 

Now a private detective got involved, turned out he was looking for the same person.

 

Now where is she?
 

It turned out that she was in hiding.

 

There is a few twits in the end. Overall story is quite straight forward. Reacher found a person, a former Army personnel who needs help. And he helped. 

 

The backdrop of the story is the black market of prescriptive drugs. 

 

Still an okay story. 

 

4 stars read.

slow realisation of love
The Rogue Not Taken (Scandal & Scoundrel) - Sarah MacLean

Well that was interesting.  Sophie pushes the bratty husband of her sister in a pond when she finds him with another woman.  She flees the scene, hoping that she will get away. However she ends up in Kingscotte 'King' the Marquess of Eversley's coach as his footman who is heading to his father's estate, many miles from London.

 

She wants to escape the world of London and the strictures but she has no real way to do this without a cascade.

 

King has a problem with his father and the death of an early love he doesn't want love in his life again but she is tempting and he finds himself caring a lot about her and what happens into her. There's shennigans and misunderstanding and a lot of fun and sparkling banter and I really enjoyed it.

Reading progress update: I've read 279 out of 400 pages.
The Midnight Line - Lee Child

In the search for the missing West Point graduate, Reacher found out something.

 

Actually, I have guessed that much why no one see the woman living in such a low density population. 

 

Her twin sister is beautiful. And beautiful woman like to be seen. 

 

Unless she is no longer beautiful. 

 

And the ring indicated that either she was a victim of a crime, or she had given up in exchange something that is more important to her at the time. 

 

Sad really. Not a lot of action. More like a detective story than usual.

The Undead Walk Among US in Cloak of Deceit by Gwen Mitchell @Gwen_Mitchell
Cloak of Deceit: An Urban Fantasy Romance (Alex Moore Book 1) - Gwen Mitchell

I received Cloak of Deceit from Gwen Mitchell some time ago and it got lost in the review pile. This year, I aim to catch up on every review owed, regardless of how long it has been.

 

Cloak of Deceit (Alex Moore, #1)

Goodreads  /  Amazon

 

MY REVIEW

 

Alex Moore is a college senior and her whole life had been planned out. Until now.

 

Her boyfriend broke the rules of the vampire society when he created her and now she is not only a vampire, she is a psychic and has telekinetic powers.  The voices inside her head are the hive, a group of psychics called Gregori. But she is more than that.

 

She is an impossibility. She is a Gregori, a sworn enemy of the Undead, even though she is one of the Undead also.

 

I went through the painful, horrifying transformation with her. I heard the voices calling. I ran with her, though it was only in our minds.

 

Whether she was a violation of the law or a walking bull’s eye, it didn’t matter. Either way she was in deep danger. They all want her dead.

 

There would be no escape. Without Julian, a Knight of the Cloak, a sexy Undead enforcer, she didn’t stand a chance. Would he stand beside her?

 

When she talked of drinking the blood and the thickness coating her throat, it almost made me gag.

 

Tomato juice + cow’s blood = newbie cocktail

 

I enjoyed this vampire romance novel. Gwen Mitchell did an excellent job with descriptions and details of the fights and emotions of the characters. I loved and hated them and what more can I ask for.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Cloak of Deceit by Gwen Mitchell.
