"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!

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

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
