Book Review: Blood Fury (Black Dagger Legacy #3) by J.R. Ward

“Sometimes, nothing made you feel older and more worn out than the happiness of others. And yes, that was uncharitable—but that was why it was good that inner thoughts were things one shared only with oneself.” The characters from J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series cross over more and more as the Black Dagger Legacy series […]

Book Review: Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, K.M. Jackson

Book Review: Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, K.M. Jackson

The December book of the month for Mocha Girls Read was Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, and K. M. Jackson. This novel features three short love stories set during the Christmas holiday. Though each was different, I found them all to be predictable and the writing deteriorated from the first story to the last. Holiday Temptation did not tempt […]

Book Review: Kiss of the Night (Dark-Hunterverse) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

“Life is a tapestry woven by the decisions we make.” Since I’m getting these books from the library via Overdrive, I accidentally read three of the books out of order. Kiss of the Night is the fifth book in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series and follows Dance with the Devil. In this novel, Wulf (The Viking) is forced to protect Cassandra despite their people […]

Book Review: Eyes Of Prey (Lucas Davenport) by John Sandford

Book Review: Eyes Of Prey (Lucas Davenport) by John Sandford

After reading a somewhat disappointing Shadow Prey, I was a little hesitant to begin Eyes of Prey. I’m glad I was wrong! Eyes of Prey focuses on Lucas Davenport out to bring two killers to justice. Having seen Strangers on a Train one too many times, these killers believe they’ve constructed the perfect crime. However, it isn’t long before they realize that they’ve […]

Book Review: Night Play (Dark-Hunterverse) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book Review: Night Play (Dark-Hunterverse) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

“I think infatuation is like a garden. If tended and cared for, it grows into love. If neglected or abused it dies. The only way to have eternal love is to never let your heart forget what it’s like to live without it. My obsession with Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunterverse continues with the sixth book in the series, Night […]

Book Review: Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunterverse) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Book Review: Dance with the Devil (Dark-Hunterverse) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

“I don’t suffer from my insanity — I enjoy every minute of it.” When Zarek was first introduced in Night Embrace, Sherrilyn Kenyon really made him a memorable character. He was brought in as a Hunter gone bad, but she added many depths to his character that made him someone I was interested in learning more about. Dance […]
