Book Reviews: 7/10- The Good, The Bad, and the Ehhh….

Save My Soul by K.S. Haigwood- 5 stars

Redemption is often hard to come by, and this story is no exception. The difference? Redemption has a time limit of one week. Kendra should be dead- in fact, she was. If she wants to survive the week with her soul intact, she must lead her savior back to God- and that’s no easy task. A tragedy caused him to turn his back on God when he was only thirteen, and not even for love does he want to embrace faith once more.

With a lovable cast of characters- like Rhyan, Kendra’s guardian angel, and Hercules, her guard dog- I was left wanting more. The twists and turns throughout the tale kept me riveted, the story was edited and formatted beautifully, and not once was I thrown out of the reading by something that didn’t make sense. I highly recommend this tale to anyone and everyone- 5 stars.

Reapers (The Druid Breeders Trilogy #1), by Marata Eros- 4 stars

This tale was well-written. There were a few editing errors, but in general the story flowed nicely with no major problems. I won’t say I loved it, but that’s a personal preference, not any mark against the writer. I have issues with rape scenes, and these were rather explicit, but if you read the disclaimers you know that going in.

I did enjoy the storyline- a woman with a unique, much-desired blood line is sought after by two opposing signs to become a breeder- whether she wants to or not. She was a strong character, very sure of her own mind, even while clouded by lust. It becomes a matter of choosing the lesser of two evils- except she doesn’t get a choice. It’s about survival, and adaptation, and living a life far beyond what she ever dreamed it would be.

If you can get past the rape and the rest, it’s a very good tale. If you cannot handle dark erotica, I don’t recommend picking this up, but if you can, go for it. It’s a worthy read.

The Witching Pen (The Witching Pen Novellas), by Dianna Hardy- 4 stars

Life is hard when you love someone but cannot act on it. Elena knows she can’t- she’s in love with her roommate, he’s in love with her, but they cannot be together. Years ago her mother told her she’d lose her powers to whatever man she gave herself to, and she’s determined not to- not because she wants her power to remain her own, but simply because to she’d hate to burden someone with them. She loves Karl too much for that, and struggles to keep him at bay.

The problem? Everything she’s ever been told was a lie, and sadly it leads to unexpected and potentially deadly consequences. Nearly every character in this series is lovable in their own way, and the ones that aren’t? Well, I found myself rooting for swift justice. Bittersweet, this story left me wanting more. Lucky for me, there’s more available!

His Gift, by Gillian Colbert- 5 stars

A short, powerful tale of love, trust, and dominance. On their one year anniversary, Owen, Maurina’s Master, plans a surprise she’ll never forget. He’s determined to fulfill every fantasy, both spoken and unspoken. A blindfold awaits her, and that’s merely the beginning. He takes her through her first threesome, determined she’ll experience everything she’s ever dreamed of.

Owen is the perfect Master. He seeks happiness and comfort for his submissive, and does so very well. A strong woman during the day, when it’s playtime she can drop the dominant personality and relax into someone else’s control. The underlying theme of this tale, when all is said and done, is not dominance and submission, it’s not sex or threesomes- it’s love. That’s what I took away from this tale, and I loved it. I’ll be looking for more from this author. 18+ please as this is an adult erotic story.

***SPECIAL NOTE*** This story is free at the time of this post.

Cowboy Moon (Lupine Moon), by Cait Lavender- 5 stars

I enjoyed this tale of two cowboys meeting their mates. While the ending was abrupt, it’s called a cliffhanger- it’s to make you want to purchase the next in the series to learn more, and for me it succeeded. I want more. Hunter pretends to be a cowboy, but he’s more than that- he’s a werewolf. And at the bar one night he meets his match- literally. Tammie is his mate, and his best friend mates with her best friend. The danger? The vamps want her, too, and a turf war breaks out. I loved the twists of a cowboy wolf going up against vamps in a territory not his own, and I intend to read more from this author.
