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.

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

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

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
