I was so bummed out when I started the last book in the Sin Brothers series, because it was one of my favorites. The way the book ended I was fairly certain that there would be more of the series, but I couldn’t find any information on Rebecca Zanetti’s website, so I wasn’t sure. At RT 2016 I had the chance to speak to Ms. Zanetti who told me that the series would be spun off to a new one and I could not wait to get it. Deadly Silence is the first book in the Blood Brothers series and while the focus is on a new set of brothers, we got to see the guys that we fell for in the earlier series. [Read more…]
Though I haven’t loved the Realm Enforcers books as much as the Dark Protectors series from which they came, I have to say that this third installment was definitely a bigger hit for me than the first two. That’s probably because –A– this heroine is every bit as badass as the hero and –B– the story feels much more tied into the original series and characters.
Rebecca Zanetti has been sprinkling in little teases about the romance between Simone and Nick for the past couple of books. Now, they’re finally the main event. It’s a second chance at love story for these two. They were supposed to be mated a century ago. But a prophet warned Nick that he must take another path or risk Simone dying from a plague only he could help prevent. It forced him to break her heart and live a dark life, but his sacrifices paid off. Now that he has fulfilled his mission, all he wants is another chance with the powerful witch he has loved a lifetime. [Read more…]
I have mixed feelings about this book and it pains me to say so. I really enjoyed Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protector series. But despite the fact that the Realm Enforcer books exist in the same world with crossover characters, this doesn’t have the same magic for me. I was lukewarm with book one and this second installment gave me as much grief as enjoyment.
My biggest issue is with the Alpha-hole hero. Daire is one of the Dunne brothers, who protect the Coven Nine witches. We established in the last book that they are away from their Irish home, trying to root out the source of a drug that is deadly to witches. They are undercover in a motorcycle gang (though in this installment that connection is almost superfluous.) As the story begins, Daire picks up a beautiful woman in a biker bar and takes her home for the night. He has no idea she is not the human she appears. He finds out quickly, though, when she manages to drug him and ransack his house. [Read more…]
This anthology is a pretty mixed bag of mostly paranormal romance. It features a few stories from ongoing series… none of which I was familiar with. Here’s a breakdown:
“On the Hunt” – This is my first story from Alexandra Ivy, and served as a pretty good introduction to her Sentinels series. She clearly lays out the basics of the world from the beginning, so I never felt lost and it was easy to focus my attention on the romance. [Read more…]
I was such a fan of the Dark Protectors series that when I learned about this spinoff, it was the squee heard ’round the world. This book features characters from the same world and cameo appearances from some old favorites. It felt familiar in a lot of ways and I enjoyed it. But it was missing the fantastic series arc that knocked the Dark Protectors out of the park –and I felt the lack. [Read more…]
I have been waiting not so patiently for Total Surrender by Rebecca Zanetti to release and it is finally here! While I was really excited to read Jory’s story, I was also sad that this was the last book in the Sin Brothers series. This series is by far one of my favorites and I worried a bit about how Ms. Zanetti was going to wrap it all up. I worried for nothing! Total Surrender was really fast paced, it wrapped up a few things that had been lingering throughout the series and I loved Jory and Piper – they are my favorite couple from the series. [Read more…]
Reading wise I was pretty lucky in 2014 in that a lot of books I was anxiously waiting for came out, I found some great new authors, and my usual favorites continued to deliver. Some of those books were better than others so here are my favorites of 2014!
Do Or Die by Suzanne Brockmann – This book was the first in a new series by Ms. Brockmann and I loved it. The series is a spin-off from her popular Troubleshooters series so we got to see some old faces and meet new ones. The story was fast-paced and I loved both the hero and heroine. Definitely a series I’m going to follow. [Read more…]
This book was absolutely everything I hoped it would be. Like so many other fans of the Dark Protectors series, I have been waiting anxiously for Janie’s story. We’ve been teased with bits and pieces for years. We have known her since she was just four years old; we’ve followed her as she has become more powerful and as she has come closer and closer to fulfilling her destiny. We’ve caught glimpses of her connections to Zane and Kalin. And it’s all led up to this. I am getting excited all over again just thinking about it. [Read more…]
Another great year of reading is drawing to a close and looking back on some of the awesome titles, I am tempted to go back and read some of them again. Now that I have put this list together, I realize that just about every one is part of a series. Some of them can stand alone. Others are better read after enjoying earlier installments. But either way, for me, they are the cream of the crop from the year 2014. [Read more…]
This was a quick read and it’s good. The writing was crisp and the plot kept me riveted; the dialogue was fast, entertaining and made for quite a few laugh out loud moments. Although this is the 3rd story in Zanetti’s ‘Maverick Montana’ series, this story read really well as a stand-alone. And let’s face it, who doesn’t enjoy a good friends-to-lovers story?
Working 3 jobs – including running her working ranch – and juggling her ever decreasing cash, Melanie Jacobs is concerned about managing it all. She has some personal matters to attend to and the associated cost is a lot of money which she has little of. Returning home to Billings, Montana after completing graduate school, Colton Freeze is back to run his family’s business. Once he’s back, Colt finds out about Mel’s employment activities (because she’s been very secretive) and is determined to find out why she’s working that hard. [Read more…]
