Justice is the latest novel about the #NOLAZombie Surviors. The first three novels dealt with Alexis and her men, Blake and Zach. We got a short novel between their story and Baby’s, where we saw the virus break out in real time through Romeo’s eyes. All through this you wonder if you would be a survivor, dinner or a zombie if it happened for real. Not sure which I would be, probably dinner. So Baby’s been working for Blake and Zach […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring All It Takes by Clare Dugmore This exchange is between the main characters Megan Green and Kian Murphy. ** “Alright darlin’.” His Irish brogue caused goosebumps to form on the back of my neck, and when I turned to see who it was, I almost chocked. “Erm Hi. Do I know you?” Of course I knew him, I’d briefly imagined being this close to him. The reality was far better than my earlier fantasy. Up […]

After the tantalizing hints at the end of book two about a new threat and the Riders disappearance plus getting to meet Bella, I was rarin’ to go.  There is something about this series that is a unique and refreshing voice in the paranormal romance genre.  There is the Baba Yaga legend of course and Chudo Yudo guardian dragons, but I’ve anticipated each and have yet to be disappointed. This is book three in the fantastic Baba Yaga series.  I […]

The wait is over.  After reading the thrilling prequel, I could finally dive into book one.  Man, things are tough, gritty, sizzling, and in a dark place for the survival of mankind after the Scorpius plague outbreak.  Zanetti impressed me with her super-soldiers, her paranormal alphas, and now her post-apocalyptic survivors. So yes, this is book one, but I’m going to make a huge, helpful suggestion that the reader snags the prequel first.  The prequel is hanging out in the […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring Sway by Melanie Stanford “Water, huh?” Dimples-guy leaned against the bar next to me. His voice carried over the din of music, a deep bass like the beat of the song. He motioned to the bartender and asked for a beer. My eyes on him, I took a long swig. His eyes lingered on the sweaty shirt clinging to my skin. “It obviously does a body good.” I removed the bottle from my lips. “That’s […]

The third and final chapter in the Captive Prince story is finally here.  Be still my heart from the eagerness and excitement I felt to pick it up and start reading.  Things were left on that ominous cliffhanger at the end of book two.  I liked that the book provided a map and a cast of characters at the beginning to reacquaint me since it has been a while since I was in the Captive Prince world.  But then I […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring The Possibilities of Amy by Jaye Frances “I made a couple of phone calls last night,” he began. “Asked around to find out what bus she takes. Then Mark drove me over to the stop early, before anyone was there. All I had to do was wait.” “Wait for what?” Pete smiled with pretentious superiority. “For her to show up, stupid. Then I made sure we got on the bus together. It was no big […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring Home Truths by Louise Forster ‘Thank you,’ she smiled up at him. ‘I thought opening doors for women was a lost art.’ ‘You have met my grandmother?’ The beginnings of a smile tipped the corners of his mouth. ‘I get your point.’ Jennifer pulled the key from her back pocket. ‘Thanks for driving me home,’ she said, facing the door. ‘I’d ask you in but…’ His broad hands gently squeezed her shoulders. Calum turned […]

Each new installment of this series is a return to a warm, cozy place by the sea that loosens my tense muscles, slows down my breathing, and produces deeply content sighs.  The author writes gentle romances with lots of heart and home to them in her small town island setting. This is book five and while it works better in order, could be read as a standalone or out of order before going back for the previous stories. The story […]

I just finished the prequel (which I would highly recommend reading/listening to first so the reader is up to speed) where I met the main characters and the situation.  It was cute, but also showed that there would be tough times for romance between the main players to win out so in I dove for the rest of the story. This story takes place eight years after the prequel.  Some things haven’t changed while others?  Brooke has her friend rules […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring The House at the Bottom of the Hill by Jenni Jones B&B owner Charlotte Simmons meets hotel owner Daniel Bradford for the first time in person…. Alright, so he wasn’t just any male specimen. Hot farm hand on hay stack, the caption said, as a vision of Daniel Bradford standing on the baler of his John Deere tractor erupted in her head. Wearing only his jeans, with fifty-five hay bales he’d hefted at his booted […]

It has been a while since I read a steampunk story so I perked right up when I noticed this one starting up a new series by an author I have enjoyed in the past.  And it was fantastic getting a parallel earth situation, some colorful characters, and a forbidden romance between a kinky inventor and a stalwart soldier from the opposing sides of a war. The book opens with French clockwork genius, pacifist, and bastard son of the country’s […]

The Great Pick Up Line featuring Four-Leaf Clover by Charmaine Ross ‘I thought this might happen.’ The voice was bemused, and also very male. So deep and warm it clung to her bones. Which was absolutely ridiculous. She blinked away the spots and looked into a pair of striking eyes. What she thought was just light brown was now more sienna, with streaks of cinnamon spearing the inky iris. The eyes were keenly intelligent, and she felt as though she […]

D’s story!  I have wanted his story since the moment I encountered him.  This action-packed passionate romantic suspense series has produced some amazing characters, but it was this cold, lethal man’s story that I just had to have.  And here it is. I have gone about things the wrong way around this series.  My first encounter was with book five and that was the only one I read.  Loved it!  Did I go back and get the rest? We-ll no, […]
