Hard Bitten - Book Review


Times are hard for newly minted vampire Merit. Ever since shapeshifters announced their presence to the world, humans have been rallying against supernaturals—and they're camping outside of Cadogan House with protest signs that could turn to pitchforks at any moment. Inside its doors, things between Merit and her Master, green-eyed heartbreaker Ethan Sullivan, are tense. But then the mayor of Chicago calls Merit and Ethan to a clandestine meeting and tells them about a violent vamp attack that has left three women missing. His message is simple: get your House in order. Or else.

Merit needs to get to the bottom of this crime, but it doesn't help that she can't tell who's on her side. So she secretly calls in a favor from someone who's tall, dark, and part of an underground vamp group that may have some deep intel on the attack. Merit soon finds herself in the heady, dark heart of Chicago's supernatural society—a world full of vampires who seem to be ready to fulfill the protesting human's worst fears, and a place where she'll learn that you can't be a vampire without getting a little blood on your hands.




Book Breakdown 

No. No! NO!!!!!

I can't even right now. I did not see that coming and I am losing my mind! How could that happen?! Ethan.... no...

Okay, rewind, let me clear my mind and get my thoughts together. This is the 4th book in the Chicagoland Vampires series, a series that I've been audiobooking while at work. I love this series. I remember reading the first book when it first came out but I never read the others when they came out. No idea why but I didn't. So now I am going through this whole series and I'm loving it so much. It keeps getting better and better. The writing is snarky and fun. The action is top notch and the romance is hot... when our characters get their act together. 

This one though... it ripped my heart out. It ripped it out and threw it on the ground, without even feeling bad about it. It started out great, Merit has to figure out who is dealing V to the vampires and what is going on. She needs to do it fast and without the GP finding out because they are assholes. So it started out like any of the other books did. It's fun and action filled and everything is great and then the climax hits... and I died. 

Read this book/series. You'll love it. It's got everything in it for anyone. It's funny, mysterious, and filled with wonderful characters that you will fall in love with and then drown in your own tears when they die.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
