5 stars for Halfway Bitten.
Terry Maggert continues his Halfway series in Halfway Bitten.
The story picks up a short time after where Halfway Dead ends. In the same way as the first book, it all starts with the witch Carly receiving a letter. This one brings news of horror to come.
Together with her halfvampire Viking boyfriend, and her witch gran mother she sets out to find out who has murdered a local man and a mysterious young woman. The quest brings them to a magical circus, with clowns, acrobats and vampires. To bring the murderer to justice Carly must make new allies and bring forth more magic than ever before.
Alpha marked. Box set of books 1-6
5 stars for Celia Kyle’s Alpha marked series. So funny that I LMAO.
The book set starts with three stories featuring the Wickham twins Scarlet, Gabriella and Whitney. The triplets don’t want to go the the Werewolf gathering, then they receive their summons on their 30th birthday. Scarlet and Gabi understand why they got theirs because they were born with a mark that identifies them as mates for an alpha werewolf pair. Whitney don’t have a mark, so she should not have received the summon at all, the sisters are angry but go to the gathering of alphas since the letters promise punishments if they don’t.
The stories are hot, hot hot, but also funny and interesting with lots of action. You really feel like you get to know the people in the stories, and did I mention funny?
It has been a long time since I have laughed as much as I have reading this book set. Here are two quotes to show you why.
Quote from Whitney’s story :
“Come on, you can tell me why you’re all homicidal and suicidal. ’Cause even if you try to kill Callum, he’ll end up eating you in a bad way. Then Madden would have to kill him, and it’d all be a big mess. I don’t do cleaning.”
“HFICs.” “What?” “The Head Furballs in Charge.” Scarlet gave her a wink and an unrepentant grin. “Now, go kick some ass.”
I thought the book set would finish with Whitney’s story because it was a logical end after all three sisters find their mates. Seeing that the series continues with the stories of Rebecca, Lorelei and Paisley was a real treat. The story picks up a year after what happened at the last gathering. The three sisters Rebecca, Loreley and Paisley are transported to the gathering against their wishes.
Rebecca can’t believe that werewolves are real and that she is destined to mate with two of them. It’s all scary and confusing. One minute she is on a date (okay a bad date), and the next she find herself in a strange hotel with people turning into werewolves. Thank god her cousins ( the Wickham triplets) are here to set her strait. Now she just has to find a way to deal with alpha pair Aidan and Carson, her family and all the problems that follows. Aidan and Carson has their own problems to add to the mix, and to top it off they have to deal with jealousy, guns and a lunatic.
Loreley is up next. After being picked up by what looked like a tornado, from her gun range, and dropped on the roof of a hotel, Loreley is angry. In fact she isn’t just angry, she is scared, hungry, frustrated and possibly having a psychotic brake down. At least that’s how it looks to her. She is seeing people change into wolfs, and since wolfs don’t exist she has to be hallucinating. Follow Loreleys journey into love and magic in this thrilling tale.
Last book is about Paisley the youngest sister. Like her sisters she is surprised in getting the summons to the gathering. Paisley are really sick and tired of getting kidnapped. First she is whisked of to a strange hotel, where people chance into wolfs, then some of said wolfs kidnap her again and take her to a really dirty hotel. She is scared, dirty and for some reason glows like a nightlight. Adding to the mix the two hot men she meets and she is in full crazy town. Will Paisley find her Happy ever after? Read and find out.
I just loved this box set of books. It has all the elements to keep me glued onto the pages. Humor, strong not guys, strong funny sassy women, action and a good story. I clear 5++ star book in my opinion.
Sunstones Fire, book #1 in the Cursed in Stone Saga. Written by Lia Davis 4 stars
Sunstones Fire is a short and fast read of only 121 pages.
On a rainy and stormy evening, Nate crashes his car in front of a bed and breakfast Inn. The owner, earth Witch Hayley, invites him in to ride out the storm and get his car fixed.
At the same time an Old Gargoyle named Con wakes up to a voice telling him to get the stone. Which stone he does not know.
It turns out both Hayley and Con are cursed and it’s up to them all to brake the curse.
I really liked the story and the only reason it gets 4 instead of 5 stars is the length. I would have liked the story to be a little longer, so you get a better chance at getting to know the characters. Otherwise it was a cozy, fun quick read that is perfect for a rainy day in front of a fire.
The Chronicals of moxie by Z.B Heller 5 stars
Five stars for the Chronicals of moxie by Z. B. Heller
The book is:
– 277 pages and takes about four hours to read.
– Number 1 out of 2 books in a series, but can be read as a standard alone
Moxie is a curvy twenty something single woman working as a kindergarten teacher. One night when out drinking with a friend, she meets A hot buy names Miles. Later that night she ends up throwing up on his shoes. A few days later she finds out he is the father of one of her students.
This is the beginning of a hilarious romantic comedy. It’s a story that makes you laugh, cry and curl your toes for more reasons than one. It reminds me of some of the earlier books by Katie McAlister, the movie train wrack and sex in the city.
I love following the slow build of love between the main characters, and the depth to which you get to know them. This balances of perfectly with the more steamy parts of the book.
The book is for audiences 18+ years do to mature content. #contemporaryromance #erotic #comedy
