My Top Ten of 2015

If I could give it 10 stars, I would!

PLAYING WITH FIRE is the magnificent, hot hot hot follow up to Flirting with Fire. What makes it hot? Dominant hero, saucy-mouthed heroine, power games in and out of the bedroom. Combine that with witty dialogue, and you’re in for an amazing ride you don’t want to end!

This book is so so good that I wonder how the author could top this one. Still, I’m willing to see her try with Wyatt’s book, Sparking the Fire.

———————————————————————–

BLURRED LINES is a raw, no-holds-barred portrayal of two best friends making the choice to become lovers, and it’s the best I’ve ever read!

There was no slow moment in the story; the stakes got progressively higher with each chapter, along with the tension. The pace was just right, and the writing flowed smoothly. The characters were empathetic, flawed and believable, and together, they were hot hot hot! There was no superfluous intimate scene, and I love that!

The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead

You know that new series that Richelle Mead was hinting at last time? Well, the news is out!

It’s a new fantasy, young adult series! And reading the blurb, it sounds like my kind of book! I like the idea of the school part. Takes me back to those boarding school stories by Enid Blyton. But still have to wait until April 2016!

Here’s where to pre-order, if anyone’s interested.

Review: Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead

garden

I’ve heard a lot about Richelle Mead, of the acclaimed Vampire Academy Series and Georgina Kincaid Series, but I haven’t read them. So I was able to go into this book free of prejudices (good and bad) and judge this book for what it was.

RUNA is a technologically advanced, godless society, and it has servitors who stamped out religions (those that they deemed dangerous) and praetorians (super soldiers) who uphold the national security. Justin March is a servitor, who was discredited in his last mission and therefore exiled to Panama for the last four years. However, someone has Continue reading

Series: Age of X by Richelle Mead

I’m now reading Gameboard of the Gods, Age of X Book 1, and I’m loving it so far. Okay, generally loving it. There are some parts I didn’t like much, but it’s a series I definitely want to read on. More on my review to be posted later.

I’ve never read a Richelle Mead book, but if this is how she writes adult books, then sign me on! So far, I like her writing style, the plot/worldbuilding/story is meaty; 400+ pages! Did I tell you I love thick books? Love them!

So, here are the books so far:

Book #1 Gameboard of the Gods

Get from Amazon

The truth is, when you banish the gods from the world, they eventually come back—with a vengeance.

In the near future, Justin March lives in exile from the Republic of United North America. After failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims, Justin is surprised when he is sent back with a peculiar assignment—to solve a string of ritualistic murders steeped in seemingly unexplainable phenomena.

Justin’s return comes with an even bigger shock: His new partner and bodyguard, Mae Koskinen, is a prætorian, one of the Republic’s technologically enhanced supersoldiers. Mae’s inexplicable beauty and aristocratic upbringing attract Justin’s curiosity and desire, but her true nature holds more danger than anyone realizes. Continue reading
