The Boyfriend Collector part two by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

Hello to all,

Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on the second part and conclusion of the Boyfriend Collector series by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff...while this isn't my favourite genre to read i did enjoy this one and the fact it released early is quite a treat. You could even get book 1 free if you don't wait too long and want to gives this a try. ( there is also a giveaway you can check on the previous post)

 Description from goodreads :

 From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes the STEAMY Part Two and conclusion of The Boyfriend Collector.

My name is Dr. Bex Hughes, and I’m in love with a woman who cannot truly love me back. Unless I help her as my patient, and that is forbidden—a taboo in the eyes of the world and the worst professional sin for a therapist.

But what else can I do? Rose was once a real-life Cinderella. Now she’s wealthy, single, and free. Except she’s convinced that love is used to hurt people, family tries to murder you for money, and no one can be trusted. It’s all she’s ever known.

So I’m bending every rule I’ve ever lived by and helping her find her way to real happiness. Only, my self-control wears thin as I hear the details of Rose’s dating adventures. Can I prove I will love her unconditionally before my jealousy shatters her trust in me forever?




My opinion:
          
    This story starts right where part 1stopped and it's great because this is not just a steamy book it actually has a more deep story behind it and it's what makes it a good romance in my eyes.
Rose is determined to follow her dreams to be free but not really sure of how to do that when Bex just can't deny his feelings anymore....he is determined to help her without making her feel like she has obligations towards him so he decides to keep his feelings secret....even if it means listening to Rose's experiences with other men....

They both need to learn to trust each other but themselves first which isn't easy as danger is still lurking around and even bigger than before.... some unexpected allies, some twisted villains  added to their insecurities....and fantasies.

This story has steamy descriptions but a real background story as well; we follow both Bex and Rose point of view, as well as another, on the events and investigation trying to keep Rose safe so it's really an interesting story of which  you will want to discover the conclusion.




Score:  3,5/5

Shadow ( Linear Tactical 6) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,


            Time is flying and i feel like i'm behind everything lately but at least for this book i'm not since i'm sharing it with you before it's releases next week so you can preorder it. If you follow the blog you have seen that i do enjoy the Linear tactical series a lot so i couldn't miss this new instalment.

Happy Reading!

Description from goodreads :

 Heath Kavanaugh lost years of his life working for a covert agency that ended up being the enemy. Knowing they put something inside his head—constant, incomprehensible whispers—is driving him crazy. 

He needs answers, but they’re nowhere to be found.

What he definitely doesn't need is to fall hard for his Linear teammate's younger sister, Jacquelyn—the adorable linguistics doctoral student who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Especially when Heath’s attention puts her directly in the path of a danger he thought was gone for good. To stop it, they’ll have to figure out what’s in his head. And hope it doesn’t destroy them all.



My opinion:
          So good, as always the author gives us part of the info we wanted and just makes us want more. In this book we focus on Heath as he tries to get answers about what was done to him during the secret project he was part of years ago. He does have symptom like Grace or Dorian: nosebleed etc but he has noise in his head that to him doesn't make sense and make him feel crazy.
He can't stop those noises but while working it quiets down so when an FBI agent comes ask his help for an infiltration he jumps on the offer....
Heath is loyal, often in the shadows (thus his name) that doesn't mean he isn't taking risks  for his friends he is just more discreet.


Lyn is very ill with a heart trouble but she still wants to lives to the fullest and her dreams are travel abroad and dead languages....with a over protective family she ends up working in secret while letting them believe what they want. When meeting Heath she must accept that she is also a woman  and under his charm.  Lyn is really a courageous heroine, she is determined to reach her dreams, she doubts herself but at the same time tries her best and i admired her for that.

We do get more info about the crypt project in this instalment but it doesn't feel like everything is completely finished yet so i'm curious about next book for sure. I loved how easy to read this story was while being a page turner full of action with the right amount of romance and humour.
 As a bonus we do get to see more of the whole team we met in precedent books as well as meeting more of Gavin's family member like Noah we met in the Bree and Tanner series.
A must read for sure



Score:  4,5/5

Description from goodreads :

 Charlene Morris knew Salem, Massachusetts had a spooky reputation. But when she decided to open her B&B there, she expected guests--not ghosts...


A grieving young widow, Charlene needed a new start--so she bought a historic mansion, sight unseen, and drove from Chicago to New England to start turning it into a bed-and-breakfast. On her first night in the house, she awakens to find a handsome man with startling blue eyes in her bedroom. Terror turns to utter disbelief when he politely introduces himself as Jack Strathmore--and explains that he used to live here--when he was alive. He firmly believes that someone pushed him down the stairs three years ago, and he won't be able to leave until someone figures out who. If Charlene wants to get her business up and running in time for the Halloween tourist rush, and get this haunting houseguest out of the way, she'll have to investigate. Though truth be told, this ghost is starting to grow on her . . .


My opinion:
          A gem! For the first book in a new series this is more than promising and i enjoyed every minute of it even if i did had my suspicions about the culprit identity i still couldn't stop reading..
Really, it's perfect; the characters are growing on you, the rhythm is just what it needs to be between discoveries and new questions there is the right doses of humour and paranormal  a fabulous entertaining cozy mystery.

Charlene is a wonderful character, easy to love. She is honest, loyal and she wants to do well despite still suffering herself . I loved how she reacted to the mysterious cat and with Jack.
Jack is a spirit but he has a sense of humour and got protective of Charlene...his link to the cat was also very cute.

The investigation part is wonderfully written, allowing us to discover the city and his inhabitants along with Charlene and we are hooked from the start to the last page.

Really with you want a cozy mystery with paranormal element this one you wouldn't regret trying. To recommend

Short description from amazon :

 Welcome to Whispering Falls, where magic and mystery collide.
Bubble... Bubble...
Summer in Whispering Falls is in full swing.
Cures and trouble...

When a local Audubon Society hears a very rare and nearly extinct bird species is seen in Whispering Falls, in Petunia Shrubwood's head of hair of all places, the society comes to Whispering Falls bound and determined to find the rare bird.
Petunia will go to any lengths to keep her animals safe...after all, they are the lost souls of those who have passed.

Magic stirs...

The Karima sisters are haunted by a ghost that demands they help him cross to the other side, only the ghost's human form is not dead...yet.

And troubles double...
After one of the Audubon Society members is found dead, Petunia Shrubwood becomes the number one suspect.

June Heal is going to have to use some very special magic if she's going to get Petunia off the hook before another person in the Audubon Society becomes extinct...like the bird they are hunting.


My opinion:
          This is such a good book, i love mystery with paranormal elements and this series is fantastic for that; even better if you are missing some books in the series you still can enjoy the new one fully ( you will just want to read what you missed as soon as possible).

June is trying to prevent a disaster while helping hide/safe a very rare bird when a group of tourists come to try to capture it....investigation are not as easy when it's not mystics related since time is counting and Oscar can't keep the tourist in Whispering Falls for a long time.

I loved to see June and Oscar working together and learning more about some of the gifts those from Whisperings fall have.Mr Prince Charming is as always a wonderful protector.

Full of sweet moments, wonderful characters,  a great investigation and a touch of magic this cozy mystery is a must read.

Inside Man ( Project Kobra 2) Tracy Cooper-Posey

Hello to all,

                        While i'm getting ready to survive a new heatwave , i continue to read and thi time i'm giving you my opinion on the second book in the series by Tracy Cooper-Posey " Project Kobra", a romance suspense with spies.

Happy reading!
Publisher: Stories Rule Press
Publication: 2019
Genre: romantic suspense
Violence: strong
Language: normal
sex: none
Public: 18+

Short description from goodreads :

  It’s her job to protect Cain…if she doesn’t kill him herself.
Agata Kelsey is an MIT Engineering Honors graduate, speaks six languages fluently, and a CIA operative with no time for fools. As punishment for a job gone wrong, she is assigned to the Paris-based security detail guarding Cain Ishmael Warren, the wild, uncontrollable son of former Vice President Warren.

Cain Warren resents his security detail with every shred of his rotten, irredeemable soul, especially the most recent addition, a lightweight piece of fluff with a mouth and an attitude.  He ditches them at every opportunity, except she’s hard to shake off.

When trouble arrives, Cain is shocked because it’s nothing to do with him.  An old enemy of Agata’s puts them both in his sights, forcing Agata to run--and take Cain with her on a chase across France and into the Alps wilderness, with the Kobra’s venomous Gavriil Zima far too close behind them...

This romantic thriller is the second book in the Project Kobra series.



My opinion:
          First while this is the second instalment in a series it works well as stand alone as well, that being said to keep track of the characters reading in order is probably better. 
This story takes place 1year after the event in the first book and the team has been disbanded and the members scattered  however they haven't forgotten about Kobra and his machinations. While Dima is trying to get her team back together, hits on the team members are starting and they are not left  without scars. The mole is still feeding info to the Kobra and they are running out of time.

Agata is an analyst but as punishment she is sent to protect Cain Warren, a young man with a bad reputation ...still she won't do her job badly so she refuse easy way out and do follow her charge everywhere discovering more about him that she could have imagined. When someone come shooting she jump into protective mode not knowing that she is the main target ...discovering that information doesn't change the fact that she wants to protect Cain, and she must do it alone.

Trying to reach her team while evading those on her trail, both Agata and Cain  will need to open themselves and fight for their life while building something deeper than trust alone.

This is full of action , lot of suspense and really a good romance suspense with moment we could cry, moments to make us smile and want to see justice served. This end with a cliffhanger as the mole is still on the loose but we do get some kind of happy ending too.

to recommend if you want romance suspense full of spies and treachery as well as a huge dose of action.

Security Risk ( A Bree and Tanner Thriller 2) by Janie Crouch

Hello to all,

                      Mid July already, time is flying ....sometimpes i wish i could stop time but on the positive side it means more new releases which is always great.
Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on the second book in the Bree and Tanner Thriller series by Janie Crouch which releases tomorrow.


Enjoy!


Publisher: Harlequin Intrigue

Short description from goodreads :

  Risking it all—again.

Now his past is threatening both of them.

Deputy Tanner Dempsey paid a high price for an undercover op gone wrong. Nobody understands a dangerous past better than Bree Daniels. Together they have to take on those real-life demons in order to stay alive. Keeping one step ahead of ruthless killers is their only option and risk is their constant companion.




My opinion:
           This second instalment in this thriller suspense is really good i loved to see how the characters grew from book one and the fact that we are learning more about Tanner past in this story was a great bonus helping us see why he understand Noah and Bree so easily with their trauma since he also had his share.
I really loved how Bree and Tanner takes their time to understand each other and build a real deep trust.

The intrigue is well written, now to be honest ....i guessed the villain and his motive right at the first time we get his point of view....(i do tend to find the culprit in book really early as general rule) so i can't say it's a 5 stars for me but it's really close because even knowing that i kept reading without interruption until the last page .Also we don't get confirmation before the end of the book so suspense is well present. There are twists, emotional moment, some funny ones and a lot of action too .

this is really a excellent suspense book to keep you entertained , could even be read as stand alone but i do recommend you to read the series in order as each book is really worth it.

Dark Arts and a Daiquiri ( The Guild Codex: Spellbound 2) by Annette Marie

Hello to all

i do have several soon to be released book to share with you but i decided to start with the second book in a series i've become more than fan of; i needed the humour.

Enjoy!

Publisher: Dark Owl Fantasy Inc.
Publication: 2018
ISBN:  1988153255
Genre: urban fantasy, magic , paranormal
Violence: mild
Language: normal

Public: 16+



Description from goodreads :

  When I found myself facing down the scariest black-magic felon in the city, practically daring him to abduct me, I had to wonder exactly how I ended up here.

It all started when I accidentally landed a job as a bartender—but not at a bar. At a guild, populated by mages, sorcerers, alchemists, witches, and psychics. Good thing this lame-o human is adaptable, right?

Then my favorite guild members—three sexy, powerful, and intermittently charming mages—asked for my help. Did they want access to my encyclopedic knowledge of cocktails? Oh no. They wanted to wrap me up in a pretty ribbon and plunk me in the crosshairs of a murderous rogue to lure him out of hiding.

So that's what we did. And that's why I'm here. About to be kidnapped. Oh, and our grand plan for safely capturing said murderous rogue? Yeah, that completely fell apart about two minutes ago.

Why did I agree to this again?
--
Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn't a reverse harem. It's 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.



My opinion:
          I couldn't resist jumping into this book as soon as i finished the first one since it was so  good and i'm really happy to say that the quality is as good if not better in this one! Tori has a lot to do on her own this time and it helps her to understand more what she is currently living. Yes she has a traumatic past but she is now able to fight for herself  and for those she loves.

To help a young runaway, she doesn't hesitate to put herself in danger  and it doesn't really go how she expected things to go. I loved the Ghost  in a sense he is perfect for Tori, loyal and protective but living dangerously  like Tori who can't keep her mouth shut^^;;  and she does take risks for what she believes in....which allow her to make unexpected allies as well as put her life on the line.

I loved to see different kind of fae and  some moments were really hilarious. This story is full of action and gives us more information about the universe as well which was wonderful . We focus more on Tori and the Ghost but we do see the guys and members of the guild as well .

It also promise a lot of fun in the future instalments when we think of a orb or of some escaped villains so i'm itching to start book 3 as soon as possible!

Really a great urban fantasy not to be missed

The Paramedic's Choice ( Extreme Medical Services 3) by Jamie Davis

hello to all,

Summer time is here and my free time is divided between collecting berries and reading, a paradise.

Today i'm sharing with you my opinion on book 3 of the Extreme Medical Services series by Jamie Davis!

Happy Reading!
Publisher: Jamie Davis
Publication: 2016
Genre: urban fantasy, paranormal, shifters, vampire, paramedic
Violence: strong
Language: normal
sex: none
Public: 18+



Description from goodreads :

 Terrorists, Murder, Redemption

Paramedic Dean Flynn works every day to heal the creatures of myth and legend in Elk City. When a human hate group declares war on his patients, Dean, with his angel girlfriend, and the vampire lord of Elk City, must work with all the forces of good to fight the terrorists hidden in their midst.


Using magic, prophecy, and all his paramedic skills, Dean fights to save his patients, even after being framed for a murder he didn't commit. With his lifelong dreams shattered and taken away from him, can Dean find a way around the obstacles thrown in his path? Will he have the strength to make the choice when the time comes to fulfill his destiny?


Enter the world of "Extreme Medical Services" with the third book in the exciting urban paranormal fantasy series. Join up with Dean.


My opinion:
          This instalment is wonderfully written full of actions with events that can't leave you indifferent We are in the middle of this first arc about the problems coming from " The Cause".  The tension is high all along and we are completely swept into the storyline following Dean a very dedicated  paramedic wanting the best for his patients.

I've read this one in one sitting as it was really keeping me on edge with moments that had me on verge of tears , other furious and at time smiling or laughing ( Ashley  sister sound quite funny)

Really, it was excellent as we do discover new paranormals, meet with some with have come to see as family and enter some of the unusual politic intricaties. I also loved to see how what they did in the past started to have an impact.  Only one thing bothered me....Dean is really close to his patient so i was disappointed to see how he didn't ask more info about little Flynn , considering the situation i would have though he would be more attentive to the "after" and be sure someone was taking care of her instead of passing her along and not checking after. I understand the situation got busy but i would have loved a line about her.

This is not the end, we still get a kind of cliffanger but  part one of the problem is somewhat solved.

To recommend ( but read in order)

Craven Street ( Whitechapel Paranormal Society 1) by E.J. Stevens

Hello to all,


                     Today i'm here to share my opinion on a new release by E.J. Stevens from who i've read the Ivy Granger series. It's a series with a character from the Ivy series, but that aside it's completely different. It's a dark urban fantasy set in victorian time which can sound promising if you love horror and dark stories.

Happy reading
Publisher: Sacred Oaks Press
Publication: 2019
ISBN13:  9781946046369
Genre: paranormal mystery, dark, ghost, demon, paranormal, horror
Violence: strong
Language: normal
sex: homosexuality hint
Public: 18+

Description from goodreads :

  In this spellbinding novella, E.J. Stevens weaves a tale of murder, necromancy, and demonic possession that brings together characters from her Whitechapel Paranormal Society Victorian horror series and award-winning Ivy Granger Psychic Detective urban fantasy series on the fog-shrouded cobblestones of 36 Craven Street.

The discovery of bricked up skeletal remains at 36 Craven Street point to something more diabolical than an illegal anatomy school. The tool marks on the bones, arcane sigils of great power, indicate more than mere butchery, more than enlightened experimentation. The signs, omens, and portents support the crown's greatest fears. A great evil is being unleashed upon the gaslit streets of London, a blood-drenched shadow reaching skeletal fingers beyond the slums of Whitechapel.

We must stamp out this demonic plague for the sake of our Queen, our Country, and our immortal souls. - Cora Drummond, Whitechapel Paranormal Society

Collecting human souls is a thankless job, nearly as tedious as acting as solicitor to the fae. But when the demon Forneus enters an opium den searching for men eager to trade their souls for the ill-smelling weed, he stumbles on a plot so devious, so heinous, he's jealous that he hadn't thought of it himself.

There's nothing like a maniacal plot to unleash Hell on earth to break the boredom of immortality. - Forneus, Grand Marquis of Hell

The Whitechapel Paranormal Society series is a Victorian horror "dreadpunk" series set in London's East End. The Ivy Granger Psychic Detective series is an award-winning urban fantasy series known for heart-pounding action, quirky characters, and supernatural horrors.

Whitechapel Paranormal Society novels Eeper Weeper and One for Sorrow coming July and October 2019


My opinion:
           I loved the Ivy Granger series so i was curious about this series but it's sure really different. This book ( and series?) is really more horror than Ivy Granger's one, it's really dark  both in the events happening but also in the character's mentality.

The Whitechapel Paranormal Society is a group of women with special abilities who are part of the force but in secret focus on the supernatural elements. They have their male counterpart but those really looks down on them and even try to hinder their work...their misogynist point of view though understandable in a historical period still started to bother me after a time because they get the job done and even with all those men must have seen with paranormal they still can't respect them? even a minimum?  it's frustrating.

The intrigue is the start of something bigger and the mystery is really well written, really dark too. The different characters are interesting but we focus on Cora and Flan more than on the others so we see little of their powers but it's tempting so we want to discover more about them and how they choose that job , discovered their abilities etc.

That being said some point bothered me more. First at time , i i had the feeling to have missed something as the situation jump to another without really an explanation or link even if we go back to track just after  it's like something was missing. Then the relationship between Cora and Flan bothered me....somehow i think it would it would have been better if they were just friends or colleagues , the lover part even if not too developed sounded wrong . I don't know if it's because we get the feeling it's part historical and at that time while homosexuality existed it wasn't done in public or because it give the feeling no male characters could be good enough, open minded to these abilities....it just wasn't necessary for the story in my opinion.


But if that doesn't bother you and if you love dark urban fantasy with ghosts and demons this is really  a good horror book just probably not for me

Read the rest of this exciting paranormal emergency medical adventure romance series with book 1, Extreme Medical Services and the prequel novella The Vampire and the Paramedic. Both are available wherever you buy ebooks


My opinion:
          This isn't a standalone at all so you must have read book 1 minimum , the prequel could also be read before but it also works after as we do get glimpse of event told in this book that makes us want to read it if we haven't do so yet but still we are not lacking anything if we wait longer.
In fact, this story start just were book 1 stopped so we are immediately in the action and that's great, even better if read back to back.

In this instalment we do get some medical actions ( still some big ones), some sweet moments even, but less than in book 1 as we focus on the actual threat and we get to see how it could be even worse and deep. On the plus side we do learn more about unusual as well as we are discovering about the Eldara and learning with Dean, who made his choice.

This story immerses us more into the winding of the system and what is happening behind the scenes with some informations putting us on edge about what is coming. This time the ending is less abrupt since we are not in the middle of an intervention but it still let us on edge for the next one in the series. I do prefer that to an abrupt cliffhanger.

I really liked this second book and want more.



Score:  4,5/5

Extreme Medical Services ( Extreme Medical Services book 1) by Jamie Davis

Hello to all!

It's soon the weekend but we still have to work before that short break so i decided to share with you my opinion on a book i just discovered thanks to a freebie ( you cans till get it if you hurry) and sometimes with those we find pearls.

Really it was a wonderful promising start a series i plan to continue so without more delay if you love urban fantasy and medical tv show this should be just the book for you!

Happy Reading

Short description from goodreads :

 Read the book described by one reader as "Like Grimm With Paramedics." Follow the exploits of new paramedic Dean Flynn as he gets assigned to a backwater station no one has ever heard of, Station U. He soon learns that his unusual patients are far from normal. They are the creatures of myth and legend. His tough, experienced paramedic trainer Brynne is determined to teach him everything she knows. With vampires, werewolves, witches and fairies as patients, will he survive? Will they?



My opinion:
          I really love the mix between urban fantasy and the medical part, it was a refreshing point of view and we are getting the opportunity to meet a lot of different paranormal creatures.  Dean is a young new paramedic who wants action but he never imagined to be assigned to a unit for unusual (aka paranormal) patients. With problem nearly normal for a paramedic: asthma attack, cardiac arrest, dishydratation etc but pertaining unusual people ( vampire, shifters etc)...it's a bit overwhelming at first but thankfully his mentor Brynne is not new to the job and it's subtleties. Dean is really good student but we glimpse deep down also a very gentle heart and good soul covered by a lot of determination ( a excellent combination fora paramedic i guess)

It's full of action and mystery with twists and intrigue behind the specific interventions scenes that are wonderfully written immersing us in the paramedic world easily and making us ( at least me) want more. I could easily imagine a tv series made from this book it could be fascinating!

My only disappointment is the cliffhanger ...we are getting deeper into what is happening and then after a big info  we are left waiting for book 2....thankfully it's already release with a few others so no need to wait before getting your hand on it help.....because this series may be very addictive if it continues with this quality.


A great surprise.

Score:  4/5

A Ghostly Suspect (Ghostly Southern Mysteries 8 ) by Tonya Kappes [early review]

Hello to all!!!


For the first sunny and dry day of this month ( it was really time even if the reprieve is extra short with new storms tomorrow) i decided to share with you my opinion on another book that releases this week so you can preorder or jump on it as soon as it's available.

It's book 8 in a series i really enjoy from Tonya Kappes: the Ghosthly Southern Mysteries series with Emma Lee the unlucky Betweener. It's really a great time for the release because it's the kind of great funny cozy mystery we enjoy taking with us on vacation this one is no exception.

Happy reading

Description from goodreads/amazon :

 A funeral, a ghost, a murder . . . It's all in a day's work for Emma Lee Raines . . .
especially when the ghost turns out to be someone very dear to her heart. Debbie Dually, psychic and friend who has guided Emma Lee since the she was bopped on the head from a falling plastic Santa, local undertaker Emma Lee Raines is told she's suffering from “funeral trauma.”

Debbie Dually is the one who informed Emma Lee that she wasn't crazy, she was a Betweener, someone who can communicate with ghosts with the not-so-dearly departed. In fact, she told Emma Lee how she was the only one that could help solve their murder to help them rest in eternal peace.

This time Debbie Dually finds herself needing Emma's help. This means solving her own murder.
Emma goes deep undercover as a fake psychic in order to see into the past and help Debbie cross over. Emma Lee doesn't realize this opens up a whole can of new Betweener clients that refuse to leave her alone.

When Emma Lee is tagged as the number one suspect in Debbie Dually's death, her handsome state trooper boyfriend, Jack Henry, has no choice but to come back to Whispering Falls and get to the bottom of what is going on before it's too late and Emma Lee goes to the state pen for a very long time.


My opinion:
          Poor Emma, being a betweener sure is never easy and it does impact a life a lot...this time it's her "mentor" who is found dead and since they were seen together just before Emma is the suspect. Thankfully she still has support in Granny ( using her charms to get her an lawyer), Jack henry, her lover,  and Mazie her new "assistant".

This book is a great addition top the series but could easily be read as stand alone too  which makes it just even better. As each time we have a lot of humour in it, lot of investigation and action and just the right dose of romance to make it a page turner we devour in one sitting. The twists were really well done to keep us second guessing culprits.

I really loved this book but i admit some of Debbie 's predictions made me quite worried and impatient for next book . It's no clihhanger , this investigation is solved but we just get a good hint about some question and possible events we just want more.

So once again a perfect cozy mystery with a great southern setting not to be missed!!

Score:  4,5/5
