Lover Unleashed by J. R. Ward

Lover Unleashed by J. R. Ward

I’ve been following the Black Dagger Brotherhood since the beginning. For me they peaked with Lover Awakened; Zsadist and Bella just had that perfect mix of angst and passion that has made me read every scene in which they appear over and over. But while those two (and John Mathew/Xhex) are front runners for favorites,…

Shadowfever

As I pondered how to the write this review, I felt stymied because this is the book many readers have been anticipating for nearly six years as the culmination of the Fever series. My problem, as I write, is that everything seems like a spoiler simply because everything answers a question, while at the same…

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning

Narrated by Joyce Bean The last category in My Unofficial Personal Listening Challenge for 2010 was Fantasy – another genre I tended to avoid. I chose Karen Marie Moning’s Darkfever knowing that it would also challenge me as a series of unending stories with no HEAs nicely tying up each book’s conclusion. Later I discovered…

Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward

Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward

Favorite Romance Audiobook Poll Winner – First place – Favorite Paranormal Romance Audiobook 2011 Narrated by Jim Frangione Although I’m generally not a fan of vampire romance, I’ve now read (or listened to) Lover Awakened five times (a personal record). Declaring that it is a romance favorite seems to be such an understatement. I was…

Lover Mine by J.R. Ward

Lover Mine by J.R. Ward

You know the oft-repeated sentiment that J.R. Ward’s books are like crack? I may be ready to check into rehab. This one feels overstuffed with multiple storylines, highlights the author’s problems in creating compelling women, and frequently left me with a WTF expression on my face. Needless to say, these are not good things. The…

Big Bad Wolf

Big Bad Wolf is a book that I could best sum up as meh. It’s got a lot of sex and fighting in it, but the heroine, Missy Roper is quite a pale and meek character. I guess when you end up as the Mate to an alpha Lupine male, you can’t be too feisty…

Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward

More than most books, I think, this one isn’t going to change any minds. If you’re expecting to like it, you will. If you’re not, then you probably won’t.  And, yep, to put to rest an issue that’s still out there, this first hardcover in the author’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series definitely qualifies as urban…

Faefever by Karen Marie Moning

Faefever by Karen Marie Moning

While I enjoy urban fantasy, I’m always aware that it’s a genre that will often lack a HEA and is sometimes written in first person, something I can find annoying. Faefever has both of those characteristics, and, though I found reading it occasionally frustrating, I was captivated. MacKayla Lane is a young Georgia woman who…
