There were portions of this that rankled a bit.
I didn't put up the covers of books in the same series that were also favorite reads in 2013 but I'll list them here:
Along with book 6 (which is shown), Kate Daniels books 4 & 5 were 5 star reads. Well, listens actually. I love the narrator on the audiobooks. Tantor Audio often has the mp3 downloads marked down to $6.99 or less. I highly recommend the listen. Obviously, I recommend the Kate Daniels series if books 4-6 were favorite reads.
Naked in Death (book 1 of the "in Death" series) made the 5 star read list as well. This is another where the audiobook is well worth the listen if you're into that sort of thing. I definitely am. Audiobooks have saved me from many a road rage incident.
Deadline is the 2nd book in a trilogy. Book 1 just missed being a 5 star but I heartily recommend the trilogy if you're into horror, sci-fi, zombies or a heart-wrenching read.
I'm finally finished and just a wee bit sad. A Woman Entangled is the third book in the Blackshear Family series and also the weakest book in the series. I'm not exactly sure what it was that I didn't enjoy, the writing was as wonderful as the other two books but I guess I'm just not a fan of the "friends to lovers" trope. Or maybe it was just this case of friends to lovers.
Nick, our hero, has his feelings figured out pretty early but by the time Kate, our heroine, figures hers out the story was almost at an end and then poof--they couldn't but did and yada yada it was over and they were a couple.
