Bane's Choice (Vampire Motorcycle Club #1) by Alyssa Day

My reading year has definitely started well. Another great book to the list! This was my first read by Alyssa Day and it will not be the last. 

The blurb:

Vampires are back for a reason! Meet the sexy, dark hero Bane in New York Times bestselling author Alyssa Day's smokin'-hot romance.

Bane lost his humanity ages ago. Nothing is more important than protecting his Vampire Motorcycle Club from the death magic invading his territory. The most ancient of vampires, he seeks cold, unfeeling, bloody vengeance...until a frustratingly sexy human doctor is thrust into his path. She tempts Bane to distraction. And distraction is deadly in his world.

Buttoned-up and meticulous Dr. Ryan St. Cloud never thought she’d find herself in the mix of a motorcycle club, let alone one full of terrifyingly badass vampires. Or how intrigued she is by their dark and enigmatic leader, who seems balanced on the knife’s edge of killing her...or claiming her.

But Bane’s choice is harder than it seems, because when that danger hits too close to home, he’s forced to choose between her life and everyone else’s…

The Review: 5 Stars

Paranormal Romance is likely to be a favorite subgenre to me until the end of my days. Nothing gives me more pleasure reading. And than make that paranormal with elements of MC, Mafia, or any variation of dark romance and I am bound to love it.

This was very light on the MC, but it gives just enough to add an extra dimension to the book. More and it would have taken away from the paranormal, so I am ok with the way it was portrait and I suggest you don't go in with MC in mind. It is 'background noise'.

Bane and Ryan are similar in many ways. Their pasts aren't great, one does not want love and the other one doesn't quite believe in it, both fight for what they believe in and for those they care for, both are courageous, both are loyal... but they are also very different. Ryan always speaks her mind, which at times makes her rather comical. Bane is more quiet, hardened by life and time. Together they form a perfect couple with plenty of chemistry and abundant moments of banter and 'steam'. 

The secondary characters are all well written and all got enough page time to leave me dying for more. I need to know more about all of them IMMEDIATELY! I am dying here guys!!!!! even the evil characters (albeit almost all dead by the end) were fun reads. The fighting scenes were entertaining and kept me engaged.

I really don't have one single negative comment to make about this book. GO READ!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
