Silver Silence (Psy-Changeling Trinity #1) by Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh has been on my TBR for a very long time, I even have some of her books on my shopping cart on amazon (and they have also been there it's been a while). Friends that know my love for PNR have been trying to get me to read her books constantly.  But, if you read a lot you know it is hard to get to older releases when there are so many new books coming out... 
Thanks to Berkley Romance though- who kindly sent me a copy of Silver Silence- I finally got to read one of her books! And, well... her books are no longer on my shopping cart... they are coming my way :) Silver Silence was a fantastic read and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

The Blurb:
Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that's exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater bears, brings with him.

Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence--her mind clear of all emotion--Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That's what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious...and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.

Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed...
 




5 Stars

The romance in this book was  so so perfect. Everything about Valentin and Silver was beautifully written. Their interactions, their own thoughts, actions, reactions.... really, everything. There was just the right amount of chemistry and passion, the right amount of drama, of suspense... I have for sure found a new PNR author to obsess over. 

Valentin was fabulous from beginning to end. He made me laugh and he made me all teary. This big bear has a heart of gold. When he met Silver he knew she was meant to be his and spent months courting her. We don't see that stuff anymore, not even in books. It was magnificent. He did not give up even though he had strong reasons to- Silver is bound to silence and has no emotions. Or shouldn't have... 
Silver can't get rid of the big bear that keeps bothering her at weird times with work, gifts, and invites to go have ice cream :) He is persistent. And when she collapses in front of him after being poisoned she needs his help and he is more than willing to give. The slow burn romance was freaking DIVINE! It was wonderful to see/read her slowly falling for him and slowly realizing it has been happening for a very long time...

The secondary characters are also amazing, specially the bear clan. They are ridiculous! But in a good way... funny, charming, silly, sneaky, playful... I wana live in a bear clan! Pretty pleeeease?!?!

I have only one negative and it really isn't a negative... I was often confused by all the players, there was a lot going on and it was hard to keep track. The reason I say it is not really a negative is because this series is obviously intertwined with her larger series Psy-Changeling, which I have not read. I am sure that to everyone that has read that series it wasn't that confusing because they knew the players and what was going on a lot more than I.

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother
