Quickie Book Review – Coming for You by J.A. Huss

Coming for You (Dirty, Dark, and Deadly, #3)Coming for You by J.A. Huss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Twisty and hot and awesome

I have loved all the books in this and the related series, but this one was so suspenseful and twisty that I’m gonna have a book hangover in the morning, I just know it! Must. Read. It.

Quickie Book Review – Guns: The Spencer Book by J.A. Huss

Guns: The Spencer Book: (Rook and Ronin Spinoff)Guns: The Spencer Book: by J.A. Huss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Damn,I loved this book!

Just when I think that the last Huss novel was my favorite ever, I go and read another one- which blows me out of the water.

The heat between Spencer and Ronnie is nuclear, the suspense had me reading as fast as I could go, and that ending… perfect!

(If it seems like I’m on a J.A. Huss binge, that’s because I am. Her books are da’ bomb and if you haven’t read any of them yet, get to it already!)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fab as usual

Ford…I desperately needed more Ford and Huss delivered with this quick novella. Of course, now I want even more Ford… so I’m off to find the next book to satisfy my needs. Or some batteries. #FavDamagedMan

7 Reason You Might Like Kill Me, by Alex Owens

Alex posted this on her site a few days ago and I just had to share 🙂

7 Reasons Why This Novel Might Be For:

  • Rock and roll, a strip club and some vamps with questionable morals sounds like your idea of a good time.
  • What’s better than a woman trying to chose between two men? A woman chosing between a man and another woman.
  • You like your fang stories with a healthy dose of darkness, grit or angst. i.e. No sparkly vamps for you!
  • You are an overworked Mom who has wished for super powers on more than one occasion.
  • You know that fanged Moms bite best!
  • Your ipod contains one or more of the following: Joan Jett, The Dollyrots, Korn, Rhianna, Vivaldi, Melissa Etheridge, Pink or 50-cents.
  • You know the answer to this question: Where is the worst place to develop Empath abilities? (A strip club, in case you didn’t know).
So, what are you waiting for? Check it out!

Remember, Reading is Hot!

Happy Friday the 13th! I’m not a typically superstitious person. In fact, I find things like black cats, the number 13 and whatnot to be fun-freaky instead of that-must-be-avoided. So let’s celebrate!

Here are some spicy reads to get your weekend kicked off to a rockin’ start. Some free, some not. All  are HOT!

Here’s something to think about as V-Day approaches 🙂



If you combine a good book (as sort of a pre-game, if you will) with that someone special things could… get… interesting!



Quickie Book Review- 3, 2, 1 by JA Huss

Three, Two, One (321)Three, Two, One by J.A. Huss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This one’s going to take a while to get over!

I can already tell after just a few minutes from reading the last word in this book that I’m going to spend a few days with a book hangover. It’s so fabulously tragic and gritty and hopeless at times that when the sweet, loving parts come they are all that much more poignant.

As I read the last two sentences, I cried. Sudden and bittersweet. And let me tell you, this chick doesn’t cry easily or often. Huss nailed this one out of the ballpark.

New Quickie Release – Saved by the Alpha by Alex Owens

New post up on Alex’s site, announcing the release of her quickie novella Saved By The Alpha! To recap:

new saved alex version cover

Amazon Link


When Roxy Thompson decides to explore the wilderness on horseback, she only intends to be gone a few hours and figures it will be safe enough– as long as she stays on the trails close to the resort. What she doesn’t count on is a mountain lion spooking her horse and then turning its sights on her. A wolf saves her in the nick of time, but it’s the handsome recluse Caleb that nurses her back to health… and then some.

Blood Chord Series on Amazon


About Alex & the Blood Chord series:

Alex Owens is a wife, mother, photographer and (of course) author living in Coastal Virginia with her family. She’s an avid reader and a paranormal fanatic. She owes her life-long devotion to the things that go bump in the night to the esteemed Anne Rice, who showed the world that creepy can indeed be beautiful at the same time.

After reading many of the popular paranormal series, including all of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter books, Mary Janice Davidsons Undead series, and of course the Sookie Stackhouse/ True Blood books, Alex realized that there was one type of paranormal vampire series that she hadn’t read yet:

A magical, mystical (maybe even Vampirish) series featuring a Mother as the heroine. And thus the Blood Chord series was born.

Blood Chord Series #2- Bite Me – Available for Pre-order

Just wanted to swing by and let everyone know that the second book in the Blood Chord series has been opened up for pre-order on Amazon!

Bite Me (Blood Chord #2)

Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SJXNUE8


After the disastrous business trip that ended her mortal life, all Claire wants to do is get her freakish talents and blood-lust (and let’s be honest, regular ol’ lust too) under control, so that she can be a good mom, hide her fangs and maybe try to coax her stripper-turned-nanny into wearing some actual clothes that won’t make the local biddies fire up the gossip chain.

Thanks to her Vampire Disability Fund, Claire just might get the boring life of her dreams after all. So what if two brothers (one hot, one decidedly jerkish) have moved into the only other house in her remote neck of the woods? And so what if she hasn’t heard a peep out of her maker Bette or the other two members of The Triad? No news is good news, right?

Oh, how wrong she is…

Bite Me (approx. 65,000 words) is the second release in the wicked Blood Chord Series. It contains a fair amount of music, magic, fangs and freaks, along with adult situations– you’ve been warned!

Snag your copy for almost half-price now! Once the book goes live, the price will go back up to $4.99!

P.S: If you haven’t read the first book in the series, Kill Me, here’s your chance. For five days, Jan. 25th through the 29th (2015) you can pick up an ebook copy for free! Snag #1 and preorder #2 — that’s less than three bucks for two books. You can’t even get a latte for that price anymore 🙂

Three days ago, Claire was a wife, a mother, and very much alive… then the music called for her.

Claire has one goal for the conference— to land a few big clients so that her boss will give her a raise.  Bette is at the conference on a mission—to find a human with untapped talents that she can mold and control. Bette lures Claire in with a haunting violin solo, unraveling Claire’s life as her new talents emerge. To make matters worse, Claire is attracted to two unlikely people— both can light Claire’s fire, but is either of them the only one?

Quickie Book Review – The Language of Hoofbeats by Catherine Ryan Hyde

The Language of HoofbeatsThe Language of Hoofbeats by Catherine Ryan Hyde

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Compelling read

This is the first book that I’ve read by Hyde, and I can say with out a doubt that it won’t be the last. The author has a way of getting down into the bits of human emotion that most people are afraid to explore. This novel is compelling, touching and the perfect introspective read for a blustery winter night.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Interesting, original novel with enough mystery and tension to keep you flipping the pages well into the night. The characters were compelling and I’m very curious to see where the cards fall in the second book. Thumbs up!

Quickie Book Review – A Lost Witch by Debora Geary

A Lost Witch (A Modern Witch, #7)A Lost Witch by Debora Geary

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m so sad to see this series end, but what a way to take it out with a bang!

I really feel as if my favorite Witch Central people are out there somewhere, still fetching new witches to help, still consuming copious amounts of cookies and using their powers to help us mortals out. One can hope 🙂

Quickie Book Review – A Celtic Witch by Debora Geary

A Celtic Witch (A Modern Witch, #6)A Celtic Witch by Debora Geary

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I adore all the Modern Witch books, but I particularly loved this book, with it’s musical bent. I’ve longed believed music is magic, with it’s particular way of transporting us to a different mood, a singular moment, to ease the melancholy of our spirits and heal old wounds. So goes this book… a magic all it’s own.
