Hunter's Hope (Vampire Motorcycle Club #2) by Alyssa Day


I had been waiting for this one since January. Bane's Choice, the first book in the series, was my first read of the year. I didn't plan for this series to be my first and last reads of 2021 but it is kind of cool that it worked out that way.  

Here is the Blurb for Hunter's Hope:

Hunter Evans risked his life again and again as a firefighter until the night he died saving a child...only to be reborn as a vampire. Now the man who lived his life as the quintessential “nice guy” must find a way to conquer the deadly urges that threaten to turn him feral. When his own actions put a beautiful woman in danger, he vows to protect her…even from himself.

Alice Darlington has a secret of her own: she sees ghosts. She thought she’d done a good job of keeping it under wraps—until now. A terrible threat from her past is hunting her down in order to use her power for dark purposes. Now she’s on the run and doesn't know who to trust or where to go.

When Hunter and Alice team up to battle the dangers coming at them from all sides, they’re forced to rely on each other. But Hunter doesn’t know how long he can keep the beast inside him away from the woman it craves…

I LOVED the first book in the series, and I really really wanted to love this one. I liked it, but I didn't love it. The book relied way too heavily on comedy, which to many is not going to be a bad thing at all. But if you have been reading my reviews for a while you know romantic comedy is not my favorite romance subgenre. 

It was nice that the second book was on Hunter, and we were not left wondering for too long what happened after his change. So although this can be easily read as a standalone, I think you will miss one very important part if you don't read the first book. And the first book was amazing, so you really should start there!

Hunter is an adorable and very sweet character. He used to be a firefighter and save lives for a living. He is struggling with the whole "being a vampire" thing. 

Alice is artsy, brave, and has a sad past. The two of them make a sweet couple and you can't help but love them. 

The book was funny and very entertaining. But as I said, I feel like it relied a little too much on that. Alice has a sad background and the "bad guys" obsession with her would have made a lot more sense if there was less comedy and a little more of that heavy past. For example, she sees ghosts- Why? What does she do to them? How is that power of hers useful to the warlocks? ...

Hunter's Hope is a fun read, but it is for the lover of romantic comedy and not me- a lover of heavy (or cheesy) paranormal. In other words, great book for the right audience, I am not that audience. It is a 3 out of 5 from me!

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
