Wicked Circle
(Persephone Alcmedi #5)
Linda Robertson
We start this book, with Persephone, her grandmother and mom performing a ceremony. Then Persephone is called home because something big is going on home, and she is much needed. Besides the fact that Johnny is coming out as the Dom Lup, but Menessos is being investigate by VEIN, because of Hildridge. This book is basically a bulding block for other books, not a whole lot happened in this book that deemed very exciting, except it looks like the direction this series is going is that Seph and Johnny will be moving apart which I hope doesn't happen because I really like Johnny, and bringin Menessos and Seph closer together, which even though I adore Menessos, I don't want him and Seph becoming closer romantically. But we shall see how things play out, it may just be a book to throw you off so when whatever happens you will be amazed. But basically this book was just about Seph doubting herself, her feelings, and her powers. Menessos taking a different direction in his life, whether or not it's a good decision is still to be determined, and then Johnny and becoming the Dom lup, and what he finds out in the end of the book will shock and amaze you and leaves you wondering where his story is going.

Dark Lover
(Master's of Time #5/ Rose Trilogy #3)

What an awesome book this was! 

Ian Mclean son of Aidan the wolf of Awe, has been a playboy millionaire, who is ruthless and always gets what he wants sex, art, money, homes, cars, etc. And he doesn't play by fair rules. Then he get intrigued by Samantha Rose, he plays with her and mocks her. And she pissed off at him for humiliating her back in his place in Oban, when she had asked him to take her back in time to help her sister Tabitha.

Sam, has a case where a page from one the magical books appears at some wealthy, not so nice guys estate. She has to retrieve this page before is lands in the hands of evil, and Nick also tells her Mclean wil be there as well. Fury and the desire for revenge takes control over Sam, and thus starting an adventure Sam will never forget. In this book both Sam and Ian tease and taunt each other fighting their urges and desires towards each other, but yet coming closer and the evils from Ian's past come back to haunt him. But also brings back Sams entire family and friend back into the fold and a nice battle here and there. 

This has probably got to be one of the best series that I have read that has only been 5 books, I'm saddened that it ended because I could read these books forever. Great stories, great backstories, great ties to each of the main characters in each book. I wish it was a continuing series, but alas all great things must come to an end, and unfortunately this one has, but man oh man what a way to go.

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11) By Nalini Singh

Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling, #11)Adria, wolf changeling and resilient soldier, has made a break with the past—one as unpredictable in love as it was in war. Now comes a new territory, and a devastating new complication: Riaz, a SnowDancer lieutenant already sworn to a desperate woman who belongs to another.

For Riaz, the primal attraction he feels for Adria is a staggering betrayal. For Adria, his dangerous lone-wolf appeal is beyond sexual. It consumes her. It terrifies her. It threatens to undermine everything she has built of her new life. But fighting their wild compulsion toward one another proves a losing battle.

Their coming together is an inferno…and a melding of two wounded souls who promise each other no commitment, no ties, no bonds. Only pleasure. Too late, they realize that they have more to lose than they ever imagined. Drawn into a cataclysmic Psy war that may alter the fate of the world itself, they must make a decision that might just break them both.

My Rating and Review
Tangle of Need (Psy-Changeling #11)
Nalini Singh

This book was very exciting in a variety of ways, one the relationship between Riaz and Adira, next the growth of Sienna and Hawke as the Alpha couple and third the Psy war on each other. This book definitely leads up to the inevitable war of the Psy breaking Silence, as Henry and the other Pure Psy people rage war on their own people, and the changelings and humans as well.

In this book Riaz a lone wolf decides to come back home to his pack, his den. Lonely and willful as he determines he is destined to be alone his entire life because his "mate" was already married and in love with her husband. Adria, a recently divorced/unmated wolf, is trying hard to maintain her strength as she suffers from the hurt of her failed marriage. Together these two strong but very hurt wolves make a deal to become lover's with no strings attached, but as time passes and with each encounter both of these wolves come to adore each other. To the point that no matter what crosses them they can't live without each other.

Meanwhile, Henry the ex-councilor lays burned and destroyed from the cold fire Sienna gave to the pure psy that attacke Snowdancer. His first in command Valesquez takes initiative with Henry's permission to continue what they've started to make a point that pure psy and silence is the way of the psy. And they do this by attacking Anchor's people who maintain the balance in the psynet. Some of the psy ex councilors contract the wolves and cats help with protecting these people. They make a start on countering the war attacks, but they all know the biggest part of it is still to come.

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake #8) By Kerrelyn Sparks

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake, #8)
Olivia's packing list:

1. Sunscreen
2. Bathing suit
3. Flip-flops

FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her—except Robby MacKay?

Robby's packing list:

1. Synthetic blood
2. More synthetic blood
3. Jogging clothes
(even vamps have to stay in shape!)

Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive—but then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile. When a deadly criminal from a case back home tracks her down, Robby will have to save her life—along with giving her a first time she'll never forget . . .

The Vampire and the Virgin (Love at Stake #8) 
Kerrelyn Sparks
The further I get into this series the more it intrigues me. However, the Story of Robby and Olivia it wasn't as intriguing as the other's I've read to date. Yes the side story of Casimir and the battle between good and evil, is coming along quite nicely. The story between Robby and Olivia, well it kind of paled in comparison to the other's i've read so far. Though, I'm still quite intrigued to read more of this series, I've grown quite fond of it.

My Review
Try Me (Demon Underground #2)
Parker Blue
In this next part of the Half demon Val, she is just coming to terms that there are others out there like her. And realizing more and more that there are good vamps and bad vamps. But in this book is basically about the encyclopedia's her father had given to her. Come to find out they were stolen from the Demon Underground many years ago, and unknowingly Val has been the caretaker of these books. She decides to do the right thing and give them back to Micah, so the Demon underground has access to them. Big Mistake! Because on the night they are returned to Micah, at a social gathering for the vamps and the demons, someone ends up stealing them. So in this book Val stuggles with fidning the books, finding the thief, finding the person who is making the vamps go crazy, finding out where she stands with Dan, and finding a new love interest in Shade.

These books are very easy to get enthralled in, when I started reading it all I wanted to do was curl up and do nothing but read it, but alas life does get in the way, but I manage to read this when I got the chance. I love this world, and the characters, and character build up. I love how there are no full demons, just partial. Which in this book you find out why there are no full bred demons.

Continuing on this adventure with Val, Fang and the others, can't wait to see what happens next.

My Review & Rating

This book was really, it's a totally different take on the love triangle scenario. Jackie is a newly turned Succubus, and to become a succubus in this series, it takes a vampire and a fallen angel also called Serim to do this. Well Jackie is lovers to both her sires, Zane and Noel. Zane is very sultry and playful vampire, and Noah a very sexy but serious Serim. In this book Jackie has to struggle between her lover's because both are wanting her to choose one or the other, but while in the midst of this she somehow gains a curse, a curse that causes her to feed more than usual, and will eventually kill her. So her decision making taking a halt while she tries to make her way to New Orleans to figure who gave her this curse and to get rid of it once and for all. During this escapade she meets a very sexy man named Luc who makes her feel good, but gives her the heeby jeebies as well. It's a craptastic week for Jackie all around, as Noah wants a break because he wants monogamy, Zane leaves her high in dry in the middle of the road trip to New Orleans, her newly founded best friend Remy, is possessed by a creature, that is now taking control of her, and Luc the mysterious sexy man who is followin her, and then of course her curse. Typical shenanigans for this crew, until the end. However the end wanted to make me cry but I can't tell you what happened, because that will ruin the story.

I'm going to be testing something....

I'm going to be trying out different ways to post my reviews. Tis is the time to change things up a bit. What I would like you all to do for me on this is comment on the reviews and tell me if you like or dislike the new layout.... and by the first of the year, the one with the most postive comments, or if there are no comments the one I like best will be the new format.

Hit List- Laurall K. Hamilton

Hit List (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter #20)HIT LIST
BY: Laurell K. Hamilton
SERIES: Anita Blake # 20
GENRE: Urban Fantasy
PUBLICATION: Published June 7th 2011 by

A serial killer is hunting the Pacific Northwest, murdering victims in a gruesome and spectacular way. The local police suspect "monsters" are involved, and have called in Anita Blake and Edward, U.S. Marshals who really know their monsters, to catch the killer.

Alright so this book was pretty full of action in it, and barely any sex at all, which honestly was kind of refreshing though, I did miss the guys from St. Louis. But what I loved most about this book was the relationship between Edward and Anita. I've always wondered how much they actually ment to each other and this book shows exactly that. It's great to know this about those two, especially with their dynamics. And OMG OLAF, the next books are gonna be highly entertaining.
