Review: Sebring

Sebring Sebring by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sebring completes the Unfinished Hero series from Kristen Ashley. I re-read all the books before coming to this one, and Nick's redemption arc was worth the wait. (I know I'm super late reading this story though. I have no idea where I was when it came out because BRUH. Nick is fucking hot.)

Because KA's series are all set in the same world but I haven't read them all, I have no idea if some of the missing time of Nick's experience as a CI is someplace else but I suspect it is. In any case, I'm ok with how KA moved the story along.

Nick and Olivia were chemistry personified. The way they met was sexy as hell and they kept the sexy times coming from start to finish. Olivia's world was devastating and cruel and the volatility she lived under through her family had me on pins and needles. Add in the fact that Nick came to her to get to her family in the first place, and it makes you wonder how much Olivia can deal with.

A fantastic finish to the series. KA had a particular voice that I fell in love with way back with Knight, and he is still my fave, but I have a lot of love for all of the Unfinished Heroes.

Trevor and Liz were cute, and a couple of horndogs after their initial conflict about her innocence was resolved.

Review: Until November

Until November Until November by Aurora Rose Reynolds
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute and spicy read

When I started reading this book I was concerned that the hero was going to be an alphahole, but he turned it around, I'm happy to report. Very sexy in places, and I'm happy to have found this series after the books are out so I can move on to the next book and devour it!

Review: The Chosen

The Chosen The Chosen by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been a mega fan of the BDB for many years. The past few books have not been auto/preorder buys for me, but I have still enjoyed them later on when the price has gone down. This book was no exception.

Layla, a Chosen, and Xcor, the leader of the Band of Bastards that conspired to assassinate King Wrath, have been in love for a a while and their story is a long time coming. She is a new mother to twins she had with Qhuinn, a Brother, which brings in even more drama when he finds out about her relationship to Xcor. Xcor is a man reformed through his love with Layla, and their romance is very sweet. He can be very honorable and chivalrous with his old world charm. Layla, however, is becoming a modern woman and is a trained Ehros of the Chosen...she wants her man and she is tired of waiting for the D. I don't blame her!

Layered into this story is Throe, who defected from Xcor's Bastards when Xcor decided not to pursue the throne anymore. Also the Shadows are featured as a doppleganger of Selena shows up for a server job at their restaurant. Qhuinn and Blay have issues when Q loses his damn mind...that was a real wtf right there. And Lassiter has a new gig...

If you are a fan of the BDB this will be another hit. If you aren't familiar with the BDB don't start here! Start at the beginning, silly. Or at least start with Vishous's book.

Review: Beautiful Redemption

Beautiful Redemption Beautiful Redemption by Jamie McGuire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you aren't familiar with the Maddox siblings, what you don't know is that they are a bunch of heartland hotties whose names all begin with T and they are as different as they are similar (even the twins.)

Thomas Maddox is a high ranking FBI agent, unbeknownst to his family. Because of some trouble that his little brother Travis got into (different book) Thomas has been trying to do his best to get him out of trouble. Liis Lindy is a linguistics expert in the FBI and new to the San Diego office run by Thomas. Somehow these two spies managed to have a one night stand before Liis's first day without knowing who the other was.

Liis was a badass, which I appreciated. I'm not sure how much FBI agents are sleeping together, with subordinates or colleagues, but it was a fun read. Thomas was sexy and a tad cranky, which floats my boat. The supporting characters were hilarious, but there was also a nice amount of intrigue and danger.
