Audio Book Review: Fangs for the Memories (Half-Moon Hollow #4.5) by Molly Harper

Fangs for the Memories 
(Half-Moon Hollow Series, #4.5)
by Molly Harper 
Narrated By Amanda Ronconi


“Molly Harper writes characters you can’t help but fall in love with” (RT Book Reviews), but how did Andrea and Dick Cheney fall in love? Join Half-Moon Hollow’s favorite couple for a trip down memory lane—to a time when Mr. Wainwright was newly dead, Jane Jameson was a newbie vampire, and a budding paranormal romance was not yet uncorked…

Half-Moon Hollow’s supernatural social event of the season—Zeb’s Titanic-themed werewolf wedding—is coming up, and Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!) needs a date. But Andrea’s had enough of clever, handsome, and rakish to last a lifetime, and Dick Cheney is certainly not the sort of man you bring home to mom (not that Andrea’s deadist parents are speaking to her ever since she dropped out of college and became a blood surrogate.) Shameless, relentless, roguish, with a Stetson-worthy swagger, a naughty sparkle in his eyes, and a constant smirk—oh, and fangs—no, Dick is the last person (er…vampire) Andrea wants to date.

But the infuriatingly irresistible man who lives quietly on the edge of a criminal underworld knows exactly what he wants, and once he surprises Andrea with a thrilling hot and dirty kiss behind the paranormal bookshop, she knows what she wants too: Dick. All it takes to ignite their unconventional courtship is a near-undeath experience that confronts Dick with a choice between turning Andrea, losing her forever, or tapping into his countless shady resources in this hilarious and heartwarming enovella that revisits the early days of Molly Harper’s Nice Girls series—one that “makes me laugh and laugh” (USA TODAY).

Viviana's Review: 
OMG… what have I been missing!?!?! From the very beginning of this novella, I knew what readers were talking about when they mentioned the humor author Molly Harper includes and the fantastic characters she writes! While this is the first time I listen to an audio book of Molly’s books, it’s not going to be the last. There is a perfect partnership between the narrator and the story Molly has written. This is rare and when it occurs, it’s magical! 

The characters are a blast! They each bring their own sense of humor and sarcasm to the party, so to say yet have a depth to them that you can find is relatable. Andrea is the heroine who is trying to fight the ever increasing attraction to the hero who is a vampire named Dick Cheney (not that Dick Cheney!)! And yes, that is exactly how he is introduced! LOL! There is a very good reason why she’s trying to stay away from Dick and it’s more than just what the blurb hints at. Of course, there is also way more to Dick than what is hint in the blurb as well as what Andrea thinks she knows about him. 
There are several moments throughout the story that have you laughing out loud, so I’d suggest not eating or drinking while listening/reading to this (or most of Molly’s) book.  As I said, this is the first of hers I’ve read… it can be read as a standalone, but I’m itching to go back to the beginning and catch up on the series and get to know the cast of characters. I also want more DICK!! LOL! 

Narrator’s Review: Amanda was awesome! She provided each of the characters with their own unique voices and tones! You knew exactly who was speaking and when it was the narration vs. a character. She is definitely a narrator that I will follow going forward. 

Rating: 4 Stars - I LOVED IT!

Book Review: The Highlander's Woman by Monica Burns

The Highlander's Woman
(The Reckless Rockwoods #3)
by Monica Burns


WARNING: Book contains a proud Highlander unwilling to surrender his heart a second time, and a half-Scottish heroine who, like most Rockwoods, is up to the challenge of making her man realize she's The Highlander's Woman.

Julian MacTavish’s honor made him guard a friend’s secret. But his lies to keep that vow make it difficult to prove his faithfulness as a husband. When a terrible inferno scars Patience’s body and mind, she becomes a recluse, widening the divide between them. But it’s her lack of trust, not her disfigurement, which sends Julian home alone to Scotland convinced he’s lost her forever.

Forgiveness in the face of death comes easily to Patience MacTavish, but the thought of being a burden to her husband does not. When a twist of fate takes Julian’s sight from him, Patience returns home hoping to make amends for not having faith in him. Pity is the last thing Julian wants from anyone, especially his wife, and it’s his turn to question her sincerity. Now, Patience must convince her husband that she’s come home for no other reason than love, even if it means arranging a highlander’s seduction.

Viviana's Review:

While this is book 3 in the “The Reckless Rockwoods” Series, it can be read as a standalone book. In fact, this is the first book in the series I’ve read… gasp, I know! I’ve heard nothing but awesome things about this series and after reading THE HIGHLANDER’S WOMAN, I want to go back and read book 1 & book 2!

I read this in one seating! I started at 11pm and finished at almost 3am! I couldn’t put it down. I wanted to know how things would end! The hero, Julian, is this strong, passionate and loyal man who loves his wife dearly. The heroine, Patience is sassy, smart and loves her husband immensely. She also has a gift that some may find a bit daunting and may not know how to handle. Their love story is one that seems like a fairy tale and she knows it. They met and almost instantly, they both knew… they were meant for each other and things between them moved fast. So they are still learning one another! However, as the blurb says, due to keeping a vow to a friend, he can’t tell his wife the truth and he’s caught in lies! Basically, someone planted the seed of doubt in Patience and it was enough to drive a wedge between them. While Patience asks for time to figure things out, two separate, terrible accidents occur that leave both Julian and Patience damaged and needing to figure out how they will go on with their own lives and if they have room for the other.

Monica does a fantastic job of showing the reader the loving and caring relationship Julian and Patience have prior to circumstances driving them apart, the tragedies that further increases their separation and the journey they both take to try to find their way back to each other. There are a lot of emotions in this book; from laughter to tears of utter sadness. Some moments that were heartbreaking and others were you smiled because the bantering between husband and wife was endearing and pure enjoyment! While there may have been a moment of “please don’t let this be a predicable ‘if he would have just told her’” type of book, Monica proves to the reader that Julian is much too man of his word and circumstances are not as simple as they seem. There are a few twists that readers will not expect! This becomes a breath of fresh air and one that readers will thoroughly enjoy.

If you haven’t read the previous books in this series, after reading THE HIGHLANDER’S WOMAN, you’ll want to! And if you have read the previous books and need to catch up on the series before the next book is release, what are you waiting for? THE HIGHLANDER’S WOMAN is a beautifully written love story filled with characters you’ll fall for, beautifully written scenes and enough steaminess that perfectly heat up the pages!

Rating: 4.5 Stars - I Really Loved It!

Book Review: Beg Me (Steele Brothers #4) by Jennifer Probst

Beg Me 
(Steele Brothers Series, #4)
by Jennifer Probst


Remington Steele comes to Vegas to be with his brothers and try to get over the one woman he's never been able to forget. As childhood sweethearts, she hadn't been able to handle his Dominant tendencies, choosing to run away without a good-bye. But when he's suddenly face to face with Cara Winters, all grown up and finally ready to be his, Remington needs to make his own choice. To leave the past behind forever, or forgive and be with the woman he's always loved?

Cara wasn't ready to be the type of woman Remington needed in his life, so she disappeared and broke his heart. But she's changed, and is ready to embrace the woman she always craved to be. She begs him to take her for one night, and Remington finally agrees. Will they get a second chance at love, or are the scars from their past too deep to heal?



Viviana's Review: 
BEG ME is the fourth book in the “Steele Brothers Series” however; it’s the first book in the series I’ve read. Good news is that they can be read as a standalone. BEG ME is a second chance romance novella with BDSM elements. Well… hold on… while the blurb and some of the other reviews state ‘BDSM elements” the truth is this is a BDSM series. The brothers are all Doms, except one who is a sub. The relationships involve and include BDSM and the lifestyle. The good news is that Jennifer, the author, has done her research.

I’ll admit it… I was curious to see how the novella would turn out…. Will it be filled with steamy sex scene and be low on story/plot? Or will it feel rushed? Would things be glossed over? I’m happy to say I really enjoyed this novella! Jennifer did a fantastic job of sharing Rem’s and Cara’s past with the reader while they try to figure out if they have a future. In between, they had the hot, steamy scenes. Both Rem and Cara are great characters; Rem is a sexy Dom who knows what he wants but believes he lost it years ago and hopes he may find it once again and Cara is in self-acceptance mode and seeking her limitations with hopes that Rem will be there with her.

Without spoiling it… I must say I LOVED Cara’s reason for leaving. Or rather that she knew she needed to do it vs. just ‘letting things be’ or ‘accepting’. I loved that she told Rem what she needed to do. Granted, sucks that hearts were broken, but this reason is one of the best ones I’ve read in a while vs. gossip of cheating or misinterpretation that could have been fixed if the couple just spoke to each other.

Overall, a great quick read with a full story and great characters.

Rating: 3.5 Stars - I Really Liked It

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I am coming for you...

My whole existence is based on taking what Death wants. Born to eliminate Fae guilty of unforgivable crimes, my reckless, wild nature makes me the perfect assassin to carry out Death's bidding. I've seen more sinister and violent dealings than anyone could ever imagine. But it was the sight of her face that stopped me cold. I've never wanted a woman-never mind a human-so badly; never felt my heart, hardened by death, burn brighter and hotter until it burst into flames. She is everything I desire. The kind of woman that compels you to stake your claim on her, to let the world know that she's yours. A Reaper saving her life will only attract danger, but I vow to protect her at all costs from the Fae that hunt her, and keep safe the woman who has claimed me, body and soul.

When an antique gold show comes to Vegas, Tarot reading artifact-hunter Sara Wilde's job is simple: to locate and liberate a set of relics rumored to give their bearers access to an ancient, incredible power. Yet within the Connected community, whispers of a war against magic draw every psychic, mystic, warlock, and witch to Sin City. The most powerful Connected covet the infamous relics, but no one wants them more than Sara's client--the insufferably arrogant, criminally sensual, and endlessly evasive Magician.

And what the Magician wants...

Sara's heist takes a turn for the trickier as the smoky-eyed specter from her past, Detective Brody Rooks, is assigned to investigate a break-in at the gold show, forcing her to confront the one man in Vegas she can't bluff. Even worse, just as she finally gets her hands on the goods, the game twists anew. The resulting chase leads her across the world to an ancient Egyptian temple filled with secrets, deception... and hints about her own abilities that could change everything. Desperate for answers, Sara is forced to turn to the one person she knows will manipulate, obfuscate and beguile to get whatever he craves. Only now, it seems, the Magician wants her.

Sometimes, when the deck is stacked against you... you've got to play the Wilde Card.
