BOOK REVIEW - VISIONS OF HEAT by NALINI SINGH - PSY-CHANGELING # 2 - GOLLANCZ - ADULT PARANORMAL ROMANCE

By: Nalini Singh
Published By: Gollancz, Hachette, Orion Books
Released: Available Now
Details: Paperback from publisher for honest review

RATING: 4.5 VAUGHN STARS

Used to cold silence, Faith NightStar is suddenly being tormented by dark visions of blood and murder. A bad sign for anyone, but worse for Faith, an F-Psy with the highly sought after ability to predict the future. Then the visions show her something even more dangerous - aching need...exquisite pleasure. But so powerful is her sight, so fragile the state of her mind, that the very emotions she yearns to embrace could be the end of her.

Changeling Vaughn D'Angelo can take the form of either man or jaguar, but it is his animal side that is overwhelmingly drawn to Faith. The jaguar's instinct is to claim this woman it finds so utterly fascinating and the man has no argument. But while Vaughn craves sensation and hungers to pleasure Faith in every way, desire is a danger that could snap the last threads of her sanity. And there are Psy who need Faith's sight for their own purposes. They must keep her silenced - and keep her from Vaughn.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:


Vaughn D’Angelo is quite the gorgeous character. He is a jaguar changeling and fits into the DarkRiver pack even though he is not leopard.

Faith is a strong character who has a lot going on in the Sci-Fi...ish psy world. The gift she has as a Psy is something that truly is powerful in the economic world.

Vaughn and Faith are quite amazing together.

I did love the introduction of NetMind. I really want to see how that all plays out in future books.

Lucas and Sascha and the other characters have their play time in this instalment and I really liked their involvement.

The villain was such an interesting villain. I can say no more. I really thought it was going to be as predictable as the villain in Slave To Sensation, but I was very, very surprised and really glad I was surprised.

Nalini has a really imaginative mind and I am totally digging this series. Sometimes I have to get a hold of the Psy world because it is very creative. Nalini is describing to us something that is truly a big thing in this world she has created. I feel there is so much more she is going to tell me. It is quite spectacular.

She blows my mind with this Sci-Fi side to the story.

Interesting combination of changelings aka shifters and the Psy.

Very original combination.

I think the only reason this book didn't get five stars from me was because Faith's erm situation gets tidied up so easily, considering what happens in the rest of the book. I was kinda cocking my head on the side going...whaaaat!

I was expecting more resistance without saying too much. It felt a bit too convenient.

I'm totally hanging for Caressed By Ice which should be arriving next week. I ordered the next two paperbacks to keep me going.

BOOK REVIEW - SLAVE TO SENSATION by NALINI SINGH - PSY-CHANGELING # 1 - ADULT PARANORMAL ROMANCE - GOLLANCZ

By: Nalini Singh
Published By: Gollancz, Hachette, Orion Books
Released: Available Now
Details : Paperback from publisher for honest review.

RATING: 4.5 LOVED THIS BOOK!

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.


BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I have been getting my Nalini Singh fix lately. I’ve been totally enjoying the Guild Hunter series with all those fabulously sexy archangels and vampires.

I had a few paperbacks in the Psy-Changeling series so I thought I better dive in.

The one thing Nalini is so good at is her beautiful descriptive. I get so immersed in her words.

Slave To Sensation is a wonderful start to the Psy-Changeling series. I had no idea what Psy-Changeling meant. I hadn’t read any blurbs or even reviews.

Now I get it.

Psys have psychic powers. They are above humans and changelings.

Changelings are pretty much shifters.

Psys have been trained/programmed from birth to feel no emotion. It is called the Silence.

Lucas Hunter became Alpha of the DarkRiver leopard pack at the age of twenty-three. The DarkRiver have a construction business which the Psy Council need to use. Sascha is sent in to sort out the business terms.

Hence starts the meet and greet for Sascha and Lucas.

He raised a brow. “I’m listening.” And so was the panther inside him. Both man and beast found Sascha Duncan captivating in a way that neither could understand. Part of him wanted to stroke her...and part of him wanted to bite.


Sascha Duncan is a twenty-six yr old Psy who is starting to feel things she shouldn’t. It is dangerous to her well being to 'feel'. She's noticed Lucas in a way she shouldn't.


She looked up at the sound of her mother’s voice. And found herself within touching distance of the most dangerous male she’d ever seen. There was no other word to describe him. Well over six feet tall, he was built like the fighting machine he was in the wild, pure lean muscle and tensile strength.

His black hair brushed his shoulders but there was nothing soft about it. Instead, it hinted at unrestrained passion and the dark hunger of the leopard below the skin. She had no doubt she was in the presence of a predator.

Then he turned his head and she saw the right side of his face. Four jagged lines, reminiscent of the claw marks of some great beast, scored the muted gold of his skin. His eyes were hypnotic green but it was those slashing markings that grabbed her attention.


The sub characters are all very intriguing.

Dorian is a character I want to know more about. Looking forward to his HEA in the future.

Dorian came to stand beside him. With his blond hair and blue eyes, he could’ve passed for a surfer hanging out, waiting for the right wave. Except for the feral edge in those eyes.

Nalini reminds us in the first two books about Kit’s alpha possibilities. I feel like she is trying to tell me something way before it’s happened.

Kit was waiting for them in the meeting. “Hi, Lucas.” At a fraction under six feet, the boy was tall but hadn’t yet filled out. Not that is mattered at his age. With his rich auburn hair and dark blue eyes, he was never short of female company. But Lucas knew the juvenile was more than good looks – he had the scent of a future alpha.



Tamsyn is a great character. I really liked her input in this book and the ever so playful Julian and Roman. ;)

“The kiss?” Tamsyn raised a brow.

Sascha thought she hid her surprise well. “Yes.”

“It’s like when he kissed me the first time we met. He’s alpha and each time he touches us, he reinforces the bonds of Pack. With the women, he’s generally more affectionate.” She rolled her eyes. “They’re chauvinistic pigs but we love them. Anyway, as I was saying, that kiss wasn’t sexual in any way. It was about...togetherness.”



Throw in an alliance with the SnowDancers wolf pack and we have ourselves set up for some HEAs in the future.


Hawke was muscular and he was lethal. A predator to the core. His eyes were the same icy blue whether he was in wolf or human form, his hair a thick silver-gold that had nothing to do with age. It echoed his pelt. Of all the changelings Lucas knew, it was Hawke who resembled his beast the most in humanity.

Nalini has wonderful world building. Now in saying that, I must admit I have read two books in the Psy-Changeling series and I can get a little bamboozled with all the things going on in the PsyNet and the NetMind and second book brings in Web Of Stars.

I liken my bamboozling to watching the Matrix movies a few times before I latched on properly. I mean I get what is going on, but sometimes my mind gets a bit away with the pixies. 

Nalini's writing is very intelligent when she goes all Sci-fi in that area. Well, to me it's kinda Sci-fi...ish. :) 

The villain I thought was pretty obvious, but that is okay. What I didn’t like in this first installment was how quickly said villain-shit got tidied up. I was looking forward to some detailed good guys vs bad guy take down. Instead we get a pretty glossed over rundown of what happened to said bad guy. The ending is a bit rushed considering all the detail that goes into the majority of the read.

I totally dug this first book in the series and swiftly went onto Visions of Heat and wasn't disappointed.

BOOK REVIEW - BREATHE by KRISTEN ASHLEY - COLORADO MOUNTAIN # 4 - ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

By: Kristen Ashley
Published By: Kristen Ashley
Released : Available Now
Details : Kindle purchase, 554 Pages

RATING: 5 GOOD LAWD! STARS

There's nothing like the first time . . .

In Carnal, Colorado, Faye Goodknight is the town's quiet, shy librarian. She may also be Carnal's last remaining virgin. For years, Faye has had a crush on Chace Keaton, but the gorgeous cop has always been unattainable. She's resigned to live contentedly with only her books for company-until Faye suddenly meets Chace alone in the woods . . .

Chace doesn't think he's the good guy everyone believes him to be. He's made a lot of choices he regrets, including denying his feelings for Faye. Through his choices, he's come to believe the pretty librarian is too good for him, but after their time in the woods, Chace realizes that she may be his last chance for redemption. Soon, their long simmering desires grow to a burning passion. Yet always casting a shadow over their happiness is Chace's dark past . . .




BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

It was wild. Abandoned. Rough. Wet. Intense. Fiery. Thorough. Exquisite. Heart-pounding. Blood-singing. Soul-rocking. Life-altering.

Luscious.



Yes. That was a Chace kissss.

Good Lawd!

I really don’t need to say anymore other than, Read this book.

I repeat.

Good Lawd!

Faye is just the most adorable librarian-geek with a HUGE heart. She loves Nathan Fillion, she loves books, she loves Chace and she wants to help a homeless boy.



In her outfit, Faye looked what she was. A native Colorado mountain girl who worked in a library and her native was native seeing as a line of her people had been there for thousands of years.



I gotta say after reading Ty’s book...oh my TyYyyYyy, I didn’t think Chace was gonna rock my socks off.

He rocked my everything off.

*whispers* Ty still has me totally naked though. ;) ( Lady Luck )

Okay some fun quotes because truly if you haven’t started reading any KA, get your butts to the reading order here and sort yourself out.

Kristen Ashley will always give us a town of sub characters who look out for each other.

Twyla and Krys. Bwahahahaa. They made me laugh. This is a kinda long quote, but it simply had to be highlighted.


“You think I walked five blocks in the Colorado Mountain March cold for no reason?” Twyla queried. “I’m a lesbian who can jack most motherfuckers up. I know non-lesbians who can do the same. You bein’ one of ‘em, I might add, though you do it with a shotgun in your hand. Same freakin’ thing. But bein’ a lesbian don’t make me not good at advice.”

I made a mental note of this and added Twyla to my phone tree for when I experienced a relationship emergency.

“I didn’t say that you weren’t,” Krystal retorted.

“Felt that way,” Twyla shot back, Krys’s eyes narrowed and she leaned in.

“Now you’re being sensitive. I’ll remind you, Faye called me," Krys stated.

“Maybe so, but when there’s a problem, it’s all hands on deck,” Twyla returned.

Krystal had no retort, looked stymied and also looked angry that she was. Not unusual, just scarier than normal.

I decided to wade in. “Just an FYI,” I said to Twyla. “I’ve added you to my relationship emergency phone tree.”

Twyla grinned huge at me.

“Great,” Krys muttered. “I finally get my shot, I get bumped because Twyla horned in.”

I blinked at Krystal because she sounded genuinely aggrieved.

It then hit me that Krystal Briggs had let me in. Not like she had Chace. In in. She cared about me. She wanted to help. I was past the hard outside layer that kept everyone out and was in the soft warm center.



This town, although it does come with its villains who like to do some dastardly things, it also comes with such colorful characters such as Dominic and Shambles.

Faye and Chace’s heads jerked to behind them where Dominic, the owner of the local hair salon, was shouting, “Immediate impeachment!”

Their heads jerked back to the front to see Shambles standing two benches in front of them, yelling, “Dudette, know this, I have the right to refuse service and never thought I’d do that to anyone in my life. But starting now, you can get your cappuccinos and chunky peanut butter cookies somewhere else! Talking about Crimson Stargazer like that when she’s finally found a hot guy boyfriend is just...plain...wrong but it’s also serious mean.”

I'm not gonna ramble on about the story, it is a KA recipe of Alpha hotties, shenanigans, villains, friendships and hot sex and luuurve making.

Oh and Deck can't go without a mention. His book is Kaleidoscope. Giddy Up! I think I have three books to read until I can get to that one...due to the KA reading order. * face plant *

According to the KA order I can now swing back around to Rock Chick Revolution , coz' we get a little surprise in Breathe and I got all bouncy when it popped up.

Reason why one must read in the KA order if one doesn't want surprises spoiled. 

Happy KA reading everyone.

BOOK REVIEW - ARCHANGEL'S BLADE by NALINI SINGH - GUILD HUNTER # 4 - ORION BOOKS - ADULT URBAN FANTASY PARANORMAL ROMANCE

By: Nalini Singh
Published By: Gollancz, Orion Books, Hachette
Released : Available Now
Details: Paperback purchased, 310 Pages

RATING: 5 Dmitri & A Sideorder of Venom Stars!

Blurb: Goodreads 

The severed head marked by a distinctive tattoo on its cheek should have been a Guild case, but dark instincts honed over hundreds of years of life compel the vampire Dmitri to take control. There is something twisted about this death, something that whispers of centuries long past...but Dmitri's need to discover the truth is nothing to the vicious strength of his response to the hunter assigned to decipher the tattoo.

Savaged in a brutal attack that almost killed her, Honor is nowhere near ready to come face to face with the seductive vampire who is an archangel's right hand and who wears his cruelty as boldly as his lethal sensuality...the same vampire who has been her secret obsession since the day she was old enough to understand the inexplicable, violent emotions he aroused in her.

As desire turns into a dangerous compulsion that might destroy them both, it becomes clear the past will not stay buried. Something is hunting and it will not stop until it brings a blood-soaked nightmare to life once more...




BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Love this series!

Dmitri! I have been intrigued by you since the first book.

I loved this instalment where Dmitri takes the lead and shows the reader that deeper guy who has lost so much. There’s like a thousand years of depth that have made him into the sadistic ( is that the right word ) erm vampire he is today.

We learn about his friendship with Raphael.

Hell, we learn a heap about what has made Dmitri tick the way he has.

Enter Honor who has had a shocking couple months, abducted and all kinds of heinous things done to her.

Nalini did a top notch job of putting these two together.

Sure I worked something out because I think it was a bit hard not to, but I LOVED the outcome.

Nalini still likes to show us Illium’s thing he has for Elena. His fixation. This just makes me want to keep reading to find out if she reminds him of that past love because something is up with that.

Venom! Rawrrr you made me swoon near the end. What is brewing? Is there something brewing? I thought the next book might be his, but it is Jason’s. I must wait to see if there is a simmer going on there.

All in all another beautifully written installment, an addiction to this series I must feed every few weeks... until I run out. Then I be bouncy for more releases.

I really should pace myself.

Bring on Archangel’s Storm.

BOOK REVIEW - THE FALL UP by ALY MARTINEZ - THE FALL UP # 1 - CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

By: Aly Martinez
Published By: Aly Martinez
Released : Available Now
Details : Purchased Kindle copy, 262 Pages

RATING: 4.25 SAM STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

I wanted to jump.
He made me fall.

As a celebrity, I lived in the public eye, but somewhere along the way, I’d lost myself in the spotlight.

Until he found me.

Sam Rivers was a gorgeous, tattooed stranger who saved my life with nothing more than a simple conversation.

But we were both standing on that bridge for a reason the night we met. The secrets of our pasts brought us together—and then tore us apart.

Could we find a reason to hold on as life constantly pulled us down?

Or maybe there’s only one direction to go when two people fall in love at rock bottom—up.



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Firstly, how eye catching is the cover art?

Brilliant!

Beautiful!

Amazing!

I had no idea from the blurb that this book was going to hit a trigger with me. I've never understood triggers because I've never had any.

Was I ready to continue?

I took a leap of faith and carried on. The subject matter Aly handled well. I connected with Sam on a level I wish I didn’t have a front row seat at.

Levee the pop star meets Sam on a bridge one night.

And there begins the story of two people with more in common than they thought, and one gay, sexy bff sub character named Henry who is a superstar in his own right. Funny, lovable and will always be there for his BFF.

I have to throw Henry in because he is worth a mention. So worthy he gets promoted to lead character in his own book, The Spiral Down and it’s now released.

This was a lighter book in places and for those more demanding areas...sometimes I had to read through my fingers, so to speak.

Sam is absolutely gorgeous. He is why I kept on reading.

“My name is Samuel Nathan Rivers. I’m twenty seven. Aquarius. No criminal history. I have a clean bill of health. I’m a democrat, but for God’s sake, do not tell my mom. I own a furniture shop and clear six figures a year.”

He is tattooed, a heavy smoker and has a big heart. He repurposes things to make furniture and I LOVED that about him. He is such a cool guy and so creative.

The man knows how to talk to a woman with wit and past experience.

Love has a way of healing some wounds and some are a life sentence you simply have to learn to live with.

The Fall Up will have you swooning for a guy who knows how to use his hands and rooting for a girl who needed a man like Sam in her life.

This was my first Aly M read and I really enjoyed Sam...I mean the story.

BLOG TOUR - WICKED HEART by LEISA RAYVEN - STARCROSSED # 3 - NEW ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE - PAN MACMILLAN

By: Leisa Rayven
Published By: Pan Macmillan, St Martin's Press
Released : Available Now
Details : Digital copy for honest review from publisher

RATING: 5 LIAM QUINN & A SIDE ORDER OF JOSH STARS

Blurb: Goodreads

Liam Quinn is talented, gorgeous, and one of the biggest movie stars in the world.

He's also only man Elissa Holt has ever truly loved.

After being out of her life for six years, he and his gorgeous fiancé are set to star in the new Broadway show Elissa is stage managing. Both Elissa and Liam try to ignore the connection they both still feel, but when late night rehearsals bring them together, the line between what is and what could have been get blurred.

Elissa knows that falling for Liam again would be a tragedy in the making, but as any good romantic will tell you, love doesn't always follow the script.




BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Wicked Heart is my FAVORITE in the Starcrossed series.

Why?

Liam.

Elissa.

Liam.

I know it’s clichĂ©, but he had me at hello.

And a side order of Josh.

Now things are never not angsty in this series and Leisa delivers a bucket load, but safe to say not as much in this book as in Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet.

Elissa as a lot of readers would already know is Ethan’s sister and she is a respected stage manager. I really liked her character. 

Again, Leisa knows her theatrical acting shiz and all the things that come with it and it shows. I felt like I was backstage or side stage or wherever Elissa does her managing and I was peering over her shoulder.


If I had to choose between Liam or Ethan, it is too easy.

LIAM. QUINN!


Liam. Even his name is sexy.

^^^ That’s a direct quote, for those of you who know my son’s name is Liam.

What I loved about this book was it was 99% in the present.

Praise the laaaawd.

There was no flipping back and forth. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I read Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet one after the other and ... * face plant * I did enjoy both books.

Josh, the sub character and friend to Elissa, is pretty adorable in this installment.  

*stage whispers* I wanted to not like Angel...but...ya simply can’t. She is a nice chick who grew on me.

All in all, the pages turned and I swept through this book unable to stop.

Standing ovation for Wicked Heart.

Well done , Leisa.

BOOK REVIEW - BROKEN JULIET by LEISA RAYVEN - STARCROSSED # 2 - PAN MACMILLAN - NEW ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE

By: Leisa Rayven
Published By: Pan Macmillan, St Martin's Press
Released : Available Now
Details : Paperback from publisher for honest review, 308 Pages

Blurb : Goodreads

How do you fix a love that’s been broken beyond repair?

For years, Cassie Taylor tried to forget about Ethan Holt. He was the one great love of her life, and when he failed to return her love, a part of her died forever. Or so she thought. Now she and Ethan are sharing a Broadway stage, and he’s determined to win her back. Claiming to be a changed man, he’s finally able to say all the things she needed to hear years ago, but can she believe him? What makes this time different from all his other broken promises?

Ethan knows he can’t change their tumultuous past, but if he’s going to have any chance of being with the woman he loves, he’ll need to convince Cassie that her future belongs with him.

Don’t miss this stunning conclusion to the unforgettable love story that captivated over two million fans online.



BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

Like Bad Romeo, this is a very well written sequel.

Leisa knows how to use her words. She has wit and snark and she knows how to drive that angst all the way home.

We are again flipping back and forth between past and present and that can get a bit confusing but at the same time I expected all the flipping after Bad Romeo.

I was prepared for it. I think I would have liked time spent in the present more in bigger blocks, but that is just me.

Time wasn’t the only thing flipping, Cassie and Ethan’s roles did a flip.

Ethan had changed Cassie, she had to learn how to trust her feelings again.



I’ve always known he’s worth it. I knew it before he did. I just need to stop doubting we can make this work.


He thinks I can go back to being the person I was after this? It’s impossible. He’s poisoned the woman I used to be. Long after he’s gone, I’ll still be toxic.



One part is vibrant and pulsing with pleasure. The other is withering and dying. The trusting part. The loving part.



Ethan has become the chaser.

HE WANTS CASSIE BACK.


“No buts. If our relationship was based only on sex, do you think we’d have gone through all the shit we have? Sex is easy. And as much as I love having sex with you, what I want from you isn’t easy. It’s messy and complicated, and I don’t have a clue how to cope with it all. But I’ll find a way, because I love you. And love is hard, but it’s worth it. You’re worth it. And I hope one day you’ll realize I’m worth it, too.”


I really enjoy the sub characters, especially Connor and Erika. She deliberately manipulates the characters into doing scenes that are at odds with them, adding so much to the story line.

Another great instalment in this series with Wicked Heart up to bat next. This time Elissa, Ethan’s sister is in the wars with her heart.

Looking forward to it.

BOOK REVIEW - BAD ROMEO by LEISA RAYVEN - STARCROSSED # 1 - NEW ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE - PAN MACMILLAN

By: Leisa Rayven
Published By: Pan Macmillan
Released : Available Now
Details : Paperback from publisher for honest review, 403 Pages

Blurb : Goodreads

While performing the greatest love story of all time, they discovered one of their own . . .

Cassie Taylor was just another good girl acting student. Ethan Holt was the bad boy on campus. Then one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing onstage, Cassie and Ethan's epic romance seemed destined. Until it ended in tragedy when he shattered her heart.

Now they've made it to Broadway where they're reunited as romantic leads once again - and their passionate scenes force them to confront the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their intense college affair. For Ethan, losing Cassie was his biggest regret-and he's determined to redeem himself. But for Cassie, even though Ethan was her first and only great love, he hurt her too much to ever be trusted again. The trouble is, when it comes to love, sometimes it's the things that aren't good for us that are the most irresistible.

Don't miss the intoxicating romance beloved by more than two million fans online.




BOOK REVIEW by Michelle:

I had heard that Bad Romeo was good.

It was time to discover what this book was all about. 

I’ve not read a book where the main characters are actors before, but not TV actors, theatrical actors.

Romeo and Juliet is the play that brings the two lead characters, Cassie and Ethan, together and man...is there some sexual tension and moments. 

This book flips back and forth between the present and past, (six years earlier) as we look into the aspiring acting careers and lives of Cassie and Ethan and some other sub characters who bring a lot to this book.

Leisa surprised me with how well this book is written. She is funny and witty, but she also brings her knowledge of her theatrical background to the story. You can tell she knows the ins and out about stage actors and directors and all that jazz.

There is quality to her writing and depth and it reads like you are really a part of the audience. 

It's simply more.

Ethan is a character that I really enjoyed but at the same time he is different to a lot of the book boyfriends we read about because he is more dramatic, possibly due to his chosen career. Well, I felt that way anyway. He’s not your alpha character. 

He’s sensitive, angsty, and maybe a little more real.

He is career driven and determined to get what he wants and prove to his father he has the right to his chosen career. He wants nothing to stand in his way.

Cassie is all about pleasing people. She is the girl who isn’t herself because she is still looking for that person.

But, the more we read and flip back and forth, the more original character traits start to flip.

Who’s now chasing who?

What are their secrets?

I look forward to starting Broken Juliet next and continuing Ethan and Cassie’s journey as two actors find themselves in their world of make believe.
