My Bag Of Books

Here is a love of a good read. Life is too short to waste time and money on bad books.

HIS first three Audio books Sheila Kell Author, Carson Beck Narrator

I intended on leaving separate reviews for each of these, however, as I had read them all previously and now listened to each, decided to do these together. HIS Desire, HIS Choice and HIS Return, all are narrated by the same person and Mr. Beck has a very good voice, his small child (little toddler) voice is another matter.

HIS Choice is still my favorite of this series, the story has steam, as do all, but there is a reason for the drama and discord, other than the years of self guilt being carried by the main character.  Witness protection really throws a wrench in a future. This was the best of the three. 

HIS Return is full of guilt and remorse. You kind of get lost in the drama. There is action and humor which goes far in saving this story, but I just could not get past it. 

All in all, these are good to listen while knitting, driving and crocheting (which is when I listen to audio books). 

Not a favorite

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon - Kerrelyn Sparks

This was not a favorite. It is too much a fairy tale with steam. If the author removed the steam this could be a good young persons story. I just could not get involved.

Out today. Excellent read at a great price.

HIS Fantasy by Sheila Kell

Reblogged from My Bag Of Books:

The eighth in this series and it is tied as my favorite with HIS Choice. I have enjoyed all of the books in this series. I don’t know where it can go from here as this is the last of the available Hamilton’s. The intrigue and plot twists made this an entertaining read.  This series is one of my favorites. There are always entertaining plot twists and the Hamilton’s are the delivery system. Sheila Kell is one of my favorite authors, never a disappoint.

Can Brad save Madison from two possible threats while separating his fantasy and reality?

Better than its predecessor

Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 5) by Ward, J.R. (2007) Mass Market Paperback - J.R. Ward

this was darker than the previous book, but better. I enjoyed the interaction between the power and her son. The son had a really abusive upbringing. Didn’t get the love interest being a ghost. Odd story.  On to the next. 

Hummmm

The Dark Light of Day - T.M. Frazier

This is a dark story. The abuse is disturbing, as it should be. I tried to like the story. There is so much darkness in this world and reading about it, well, it is not my normal proclivity.   This ended on a high note for this couple, but a paid assain, is a murderer.  Just saying. 

Eh.

Lover Revealed - J.R. Ward

In this installment the warrior and his “love” are just irritating. I finished only because I am doing this whole series and still have 9 or 10 rows to the finish of my project. The main story regarding the conflict with the really bad guys is the only saving grace with this story. I was at the point of letting this one go, when it finally passed the morose “I am not good enough for her/him” point and actually got interesting. Not the best in this series. On to the next.

Liam and Charlotte

Random Acts of Hope (Random Series) - Julia Kent

A sweet fun story, which includes long standing misunderstandings on both sides.   This is a good read and it is one of my favorites in the series. I love Darla and the guys, but find I have to break from constant fumbling humor. Enjoyed very much. 

3rd book down.

Lover Awakened - J.R. Ward

Well my crochet project is taking time to add a row. I am close to finishing but each row is longer so more audio books. Finished the 3rd book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This one was dark, so far they have all been steamy, violent and intriguing. This one was sad and the abuse hurt my heart. My biggest problem is the silly drama between these warriors. On to the next. 

2nd book in this series and wow

Lover Eternal - J.R. Ward

I finished this second audio book while working on my crochet project. All I can say is WOW!  This is one hot listen, the steam was rolling. It was a little overwhelming. The story continued from the first book, this one focuses on Rhage and his lover Mary. It was humorous in spots and I find these warriors are bit melodramatic. There are spots that redeem the story. On to the next. 

Tops my “worst read” this year.

— feeling bad smell
Step Beast: (Military Bad Boy BBW BDSM Billionaire Stepbrother Romance) - Selena Kitt

Run like the wind. This is tops my worst read this year. Awful just awful. 

First in this series.

Dark Lover - J.R. Ward

This is the first and am listening to these on audio while I work on my crochet and knitting projects. It took me a little to fall into the story.  In this story you meet the main characters and focus is on Wrath, the blind king. The main characters are hulked up vamps and they do have trials and tribulations fighting the bad guys (these guys are really bad).  There is much steam, violence, romance and intrigue. The narrator does a good job.  Moving on to the next. 

Girl in the Water

Girl in the Water - Dana Marton

This is, so far, my favorite of Dana Marton’s books. The story is heart wrenching in places and the intrigue is palpable. Such a good story. Don’t miss this one. 

One of my favorites

Working Stiff: Casimir - Blair Babylon

Blair is one of my favorite authors. This story is at the top of my list. I love the Georgie/Xan series, it is my favorite but Casmir is a close second. Her books are always a good read. 

The Random Acts Series.

Random Acts of Crazy - Julia Kent

I am currently enjoying the Julia Kent, Random Acts Series. I found this at Kobo, on sale and have enjoyed all of the books so far. The iPhone mishap, was hilarious, although, A little far fetched. I may have to purchase the most recent book, as I am not sure it is included.

The Kobo reader is not my favorite, I find the features hard to use. I have yet to be able to bookmark or annotate.  Kobo runs some great sales, if you are not signed up for their emails, do so. I picked up excellent deals on the books by Marie Force a few months ago, that I needed to complete my library.
