"Quickies" March 2021

It has been some time since I've had to write one of these. I've read a lot of books these last two months and haven't really had the time to sit and write a long review on every single on of them. So I hope the few short lines bellow help you some. 

Thanks for reading! 


Kiss of the Highlander (Highlander #4) by Karen Marie Moning, 5 Stars

&

The Immortal Highlander (Highlander #6) by Karen Marie Moning, 4 Stars

This series is an easy "go-to" for me when I want to read something I know I will like and that won't take me forever to finish. Kiss of the Highlander has some humor while being romantic and sexy. Drustan has been "sleeping" for nearly five centuries when Gwen, literally, falls on top of him. From than on is a matter of him convincing her he is not mad and her deciding if she trusts and believes on him or not. As for The Immortal Highlander, I wouldn't recommend reading this one without having read the previous books. Adam Black is a very arrogant and full of himself fae that you can't help but love. He was punished by his queen for something he did in the previous book and no one can see him. Until he crosses path Gabriel that is. She can see him, and now he needs her help to get to his queen so she will restore him to his formal glory. 

Reaper's Property (Reapers MC #1) by Joanna Wylde, 3 Stars

I am trying to read more MC books this year, I really like them and I am happy to say this one was a good read. MCs are not for everyone, specially if they are done well. They rarely deal with characters that are in good standing with society. Marie just left an abusive relationship, and getting together with a big bad ass biker is not in her plans. Horse (yes that is his name. And yes, for 'that' reason) disagrees. When her brother steals from the club she becomes the perfect bargaining chip. Horse pays the debt, but she is his to do with whatever he wants...


Cherish Hard (Hard Play #1) by Nalini Singh, 3 Stars

Another great read by Nalini Singh. She always write great stories. I have to say though that I much prefer her paranormal books. Although this one was good it didn't excite me and at times I even found a little boring. Sailor wants to create a successful landscaping business and is solely focused on that until he meets Isa, the daughter of the company he just signed a contract with. They end up working together and getting to know each other really well. But is it meant to be? she doesn't need another workaholic in her life and Sailor needs to work hard if he is to succeed with his plans. 

Baker (Devil's Disciples MC #1), 2 Stars

This book had a promising plot. The MC robs a bank and six months later the girl whose life turned upside down because of it ends up getting a job next door. Is it coincidence? It could have been good, really good. But, it is a little offensive to brasilian woman and woman in general really. On top of that the plot is full of holes and things that don't connect. 

Heart of Steel (The Vikings MC #1), 3 Stars

Another good MC! Remi lost her dad and trying to juggle university, her dad's business, grief, and having a normal life. It is hard and she is failing. Steel does not walk in the right side of the law and although he cares for Remi and wants her to be his one of the clubs dealing messes up her life and not in a good way. Can he fix it? will she forgive him?


Blue Morning Vol. 1 to Vol. 8 by Shoko Hidaka, 3.5 Stars

I never read anything that dealt with Asian hierarchy in so much detail, and so I was intrigued and very interested through out, but at times it was a little much. The romance is heavily imbedded and has a direct correlation to the way the hierarchy and society of the time worked. It was sweet, full of drama, and frustrating all at once!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
