Bite Me (Blood Chord #2)

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

Blurb:

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!

Blurb:

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?

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!

Fashionably Dead (Hot Damned, #1)Fashionably Dead (The Hot Damned Series #1 ) by Robyn Peterman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Loved this book so much!

Aside from it’s fabulously inventive plot, it has the most creative, quirkified cast of characters that practically leap off the page (er, screen) in technicolor.

I found myself giggling late into the night and text more than one “gem” to a friend as I read. And then I made her read the book (she loved it too.) Then we read the next one and had an hour-long conversation about how we’d love to have our own little Beyonce & friends.

If you love your UF/ paranormal with a heaping-helping of snark, outlandish characters and humor that bites instead of tickles, definitely check out this series!

Crimson Night (Night, #1)Crimson Night by Marie Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wildly original, fast-paced and smexy. This novel was quite a ride and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. If you like your heroine sassy, smart and fighting her own personal demons, then you’ll love Pandora!

Quickie Book Review – Vampire Sun by J.R. Rain (Samantha Moon series)

Vampire Sun (Vampire for Hire, #9)Vampire Sun by J.R. Rain

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This series could only be better if Rain could manage to put out a new book every week or so, then I’d be happy. Who wouldn’t love a series about a Vamp mom with mystical qualities, a champion of the underdog, and she who flies on big black wings whenever her heart desires?

Seriously Rain, give me the next one S.T.A.T!

Quickie Book Review – The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank

The Curse Keepers (Curse Keepers, #1)The Curse Keepers by Denise Grover Swank

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a compelling, intricate novel. I thought the way the author wove in the missing settlement from the Outer Banks with native american lore was flipping genius, and the hot/cold chemistry between the main characters kept me on the edge of the page. And then there’s the danger and suspense element. Overall a great read!

Eternal NightEternal Night by Carina Adly MacKenzie

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What if the ancient Gods did exist… and what if they’re still alive, yet powerless after hundreds of years of nobody believing in them? Then you’d end up with this novel.

I especially loved the interactions between the handful of Gods left. Eons of interactions make for riffs that span centuries, missed opportunities and regrets over choices long-ago made. Part fantasy, part mystery, this novel is all page-turner.

Quickie Book Review – Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

Eternal Starling (Emblem of Eternity, #1)Eternal Starling by Angela Corbett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I adored the premise behind this first book of a series. How past lives could potentially influence and come back to bite a gal in her present life… it’s just so intriguing. And the way that the author sets everything up with finesse and craftiness is just so tasty to read.

So what’s a girl to do when the love of your past comes back to claim you? Think you know? Well, you don’t because he’s not the only new/old guy in your life. So how do you choose yet again and how do you know who’s really your soul mate when they both say they are?

I don’t want to reveal any more, so you’ll just have to read it 🙂

Love the fantastical world building in this series! I mean, who wouldn’t– it has Tales (fairy tale characters, transplanted to our realm and living under the radar.)The plot of this one was good and fast-paced, and we get to see a bit more about Nate and Red. Recommended!

Quickie Book Review – Hex and the Single Witch by Roxanne Rhoads

Hex and the Single Witch (Vehicle City Vampires #1)Hex and the Single Witch by Roxanne Rhoads

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hex and the Single Witch is a steamy, compelling paranormal / Urban fantasy. I enjoyed the setting, cast of interesting characters and, of course, the heat level. The “world” Ms. Rhoads has created is one full of magic and Otherworldly creatures, which live along side the normal humans– so someone has to bridge the divide and try to keep the peace by being part of an elite police unit. And that someone is a witch with limited abilities (or so it may seem), a saucy best friend and Magic-Tech-nerd, an always-flirting partner and a make-you-melt Vamp with a sorrid past. Throw in a few randy hexes and you’ve got yourself all the trappings for a page turner.

Can’t wait to read book two in the series!
