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.

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
