Review for My Duke's Desire (Wicked Lords of London #4) by Tammy Andresen

My Duke's Desire
Wicked Lords of London Book 4
Tammy Andresen


Lady Violette knew two things for certain. She must make an advantageous match to save her family and the lord who agreed would be less than desirable. It didn’t matter that she wished to sail off on a great adventure. It wasn’t her choice to make.

His Grace, The Duke of Waverly, had no intention marrying, no matter what his mother expected. That was one of the few advantages of being a duke and he’d sailed back from Barbados to inform her. On his journey home, however, a beautifully proper lady rescues him when his horse is injured. He can’t help but notice that Lady Violette is in need of rescuing herself. Much as she tempts him, he can’t be the man that saves her.

Theo is definitely no ordinary Englishman. He’s about to go and face the music about his duties as the duke of the area. And he’s not a willing one. I thought it was funny that he looked like such a wild rogue with his beard and tanned skin. So...scraggly according to the time and place. And he happens upon the Lady Violette on his way home. Funny thing is they are going the same way. But she is more than just a social climber. She has her family to care for since her father is no longer there to. And he left them in a bad situation. But she is quite a character. She’s willing to give up her whole life by marrying someone who might not care at all about her. Just to ensure her family’s future. I found her a very strong and wonderful character. I liked Theo too, but he needed a little settling. Great read!  5 out of 5 stars!

Review for Bound by Darkness (The Alliance Book 3) by Brenda K Davies

Bound by Darkness
The Alliance Book 3
Brenda K Davies


Determined to rescue Simone from the vampires who took her, Killean must become one of the things he’s spent his life fighting—a Savage. As he sinks further into a world filled with death, Killean struggles against his growing bloodlust as he vows to do whatever it takes to save Simone from becoming a monster like him.

When Simone looks up and sees Killean in the middle of her prison, she believes she’s imagining things. Soon, she realizes that the vampire who is supposed to be fighting to stop the Savages, and whose kiss made her feel so alive recently, has succumbed to his darkest urges and become one of the things holding her captive. 

It’s not until Killean tries to rescue her that Simone realizes things aren’t what they seem. Even if Killean can save them from the vampires seeking to turn her into a Savage, can she save him from the darkness devouring his soul before it’s too late?

***The Alliance Series is a spin-off of the Vampire Awakenings series. You do not have to read the Vampire Awakenings Series in order to follow the Alliance Series, but it is recommended.*** 

Recommended Reading order for The Alliance Series:
Eternally Bound (Book 1)
Bound by Vengeance (Book 2)
Bound by Darkness (Book 3)

Well just when I think this series can’t get better it does! It holds a certain brutality to it while capturing the romance between Simone and Killean. It’s a beautiful balance of the two and I can’t help but admire them both for the sacrifices they make and the trials they go through for each other and their friends. Joseph is just brutal and this book definitely shows that. The ending was very gripping! Watching Killean embrace that inner savage was really something! 5 out of 5 stars!

Review for The Partnership (Extra Credit Book 1) by Charlotte Penn Clark

The Partnership 
Extra Credit Book 1
Charlotte Penn Clark


Kyle’s got a problem. He needs to pass college composition to graduate but he can’t get words on a page.  It’s landed him in a pilot class called Extra Credit for students in trouble—when all he wants is to be left alone.

Lani’s got a problem too. She doesn't like making waves and it gets her stuck in the Extra Credit class. When she ends up partnered with Kyle things start getting complicated. Kyle is angry, restless, impatient; Lani is calm, introverted, bookish. But when these opposites attract can they manage to stay “just partners”?

This was a unique story for me. It was different because I’ve never read anything like it before. Definitely an interesting idea and I’ve seen other books that kind of looked like this but definitely weren’t the same. It does start off rather slow. But the story between Lani and Kyle gets heated and things change for the very quiet and modest Lani and hot headed Kyle. They both have their issues they face. There’s some nice character growth and the end is really good!  4 out of 5 stars!

Review for Love Notes (Accidental Kisses #3) by Tammy Andresen

Love Notes
Accidental Kisses #3
Tammy Andresen


Melissa: The baddest member of the band, Derek is the picture of a dark rock god and everything I never wanted in a boyfriend. My well-laid plan for the future definitely doesn't involve brooding guitarist/singer with intense eyes and a history of disastrous relationships. But when he turns that passionate gaze on me, I'm helpless to resist. Even though I know this doesn't make sense. I don't do casual flings and Derek's sworn off long-term girlfriends. This can't work out for either of us, not in the long run. It's obvious that kissing Derek is nothing but then, why can’t I stay away?

Derek: My type of girl is going to kill me. I mean emotionally, but one of them might actually attempt murder. My relationships are always exciting, right up until the point it goes crazy. It's my own fault, though. You see, I don't date good girls. They're too sweet, too wholesome, and they're way more trouble than they're worth. Take Melissa. The girl might not bring drama, but get to close to someone like that and someone's heart is bound to break. She's exactly the type of girl I've always avoided, the kind of girlfriend I never wanted. But maybe, just maybe, she's exactly what I need.

Ahhh perky Mel and broody Derek. What a pair. Polar opposites in so many ways, but like magnets, they are attracted to each other. Problem is that while Derek has lots of experience with girls, Mel is not near as much in the guy department. Even though she’s so young, she’s very driven and has her life all planned out. Then Derek comes along and everything changes. He’s not who she pictured herself falling for, but once she gets to know him, it’s hard not to. He has the rocker attitude down to a T. On and off the stage. But he doesn’t intimidate her much and things spiral out of control pretty quickly. I really liked the new vibe of this book. It’s different than the first two but still has that happily ever after feel to it. 5 out of 5 stars!
