Dragon Fire (Vale of Stars #3) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Adult Content

I absolutely love Juliette Cross and it is always a great day when I get to read one of her books.

Dragon Fire is book 3 in the Vale of Star series and focuses on Kieran and Liana. Kieran is Kol's twin brother, the bookish love of my life (Book #1). So although I liked Kieran, you can all have his hot ass! In other words: "Kol still mine, back the f*** off!" 

I suppose now that the important warning is out of the way we can get on with the Blurb and Review :)

Blurb: 
A taste of heaven may drag him to hell...

Wounded, with a target still on his back, Kieren Moonring has been hiding in the last place his Morgon enemies might find him. In the human convent on the southern shores of Primus, his body heals quickly, but his soul is broken. 

While Sister Liana tends to the recovering Morgon man hiding in their convent, she can't stop or disguise her growing attraction. What disturbs her more is that he begins to uncover her past that is best kept buried. 
Kieren fears his old enemies will find him, and then Liana. When his greatest fear comes true and she becomes their next mark...bloody hell, if he won’t murder the whole world to keep her safe.

Let's start with my favorite part about Dragon Fire: Kol was there! hehehe 
Sorry guys, just like I couldn't talk about Hardest Fall without talking about Dom from Darkest Heart (another series by the fab Juliette), I can't here talk about this book without mentioning Kol a million times. So.... read another review if that is gonna bother ya! Seriously.... 🙈
Where were we? Ah... my favorite part! 
I need to find it and copy it here.... hold that thought ('cause you all here reading as type of-course...)! 

Ah.. found it (in case you wondering took me almost 10 minutes).

This is Moira and Jessen talking about the love of my life:
"Is there ever a time he's not frowning?" asked Jessen 
obs- this was after a long paragraph where Moira explained the meaning of the many of Kol's frowny expressions. Hilarious!!
"Oh yes. When we're having sex." She paused thoughtfully. "Or when I give him a blow job." I gasped and Jessen laughed. "He smiles a lot when I give him a blow job." Moira winked.
I laughed with them....
Me too Liana, me too...

I absolutely adore all the other female characters and their banter with Liana was just great. They made her fell welcome. 

Now to Kieran...
What an amazing guy! Trustworthy, loyal, intelligent, hot... What is not to like right?
He was also adorable and stupid. Adorable by trying to make things right by Liana, stupid for not realizing how much she wanted him from the gecko.

Liana was nice. A Sister of Light not by choice but by need. I didn't dislike her, but she is my least favorite heroine in the series. I am sitting here trying to think of a strong word to describe her and can't come up with anything. I guess that is my issue with her, she was just nice.... 

The way their relationship progressed was done really well. They had an immense amount of chemistry but also had a nice friendship. I think they compliment each other rather nicely. Kieran is this nice, trustworthy, diplomatic and understanding guy that can be strong and protective when needed. And Liana needs someone to trust and cherish like that. Someone like Kol would just scare the crap out of her! 

The only negative is Liana's past. I selfishly couldn't care less about all the stories about her father. Yup, I wanted to know why she became a sister, so that was needed. And how she knew the guys that helped them escape... but that is it. All the other inner dialogue or even chats with Kieran about her dad bored me. I might even have skipped some.... 

Anyway... I would read Juliette's shopping list. So all in all it was FANTASTIC!!! Go Read!

Release Date: April 30th

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

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

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
