READS IN REVIEW-August
Here's a quick review of all the books I read last month!
1. Hearne, Kevin "Hounded" (Iron Druid Chronicles #1)--4.5 Stars
-Absolutely hilarious beginning to this urban fantasy series! I had a blast reading this and highly recommend it to anyone who likes paranormals with a sense of humor. Long review is coming soon!
2. Kenyon, Sherrilyn "Retribution" (Dark Hunters #20)--3.5 Stars (REVIEW)
-Paranormal romance. Really liked the hero and the secondary characters, but never got into the heroine. Interesting mythology and additional worldbuilding.
3. March, Ava "Bound Forever" (Bound #3)--4 Stars
-Historical male/male romance. Conclusion to March's Bound trilogy. Realistic and sweet ending to Vincent and Oliver's story.
4. March, Ava "Object of His Desires"--4 Stars
-Historical male/male romance. Love the unrequited love trope and the non-stereotypical characters!
5. March, Ava "Convincing Arthur" (Convincing #1)--4 Stars
-Historical male/male romance. Another unrequited love story that about broke my heart! Can't wait for the sequel Convincing Leopold.
6. Merrow, J.L. "Muscling Through"--4 Stars (REVIEW)
-Contemporary male/male romance. Interesting first person point of view. Love opposites attract stories!
7. Neville, Miranda "The Amorous Education of Celia Seaton" (The Burgundy Club #3)--4.5 Stars
-Historical romance. My favorite read of August! Unpredictable and sweet!
8. Quinn, Devyn "Darkness Descending" (Vampire Armageddon #1)--4.5 Stars (REVIEW)
-Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance. There seems to be a lot of debate regarding this book, but I thought it was a well-written beginning to a lengthy series. I liked the original approach to the vampire myth plus the hero was yummy!
9. Scott, R.J. "Love Is In the Title" (Love #1)--3.5 Stars
-Young Adult Male/Male Romance. Short story that was very romantic. Quick and easy read!
10. Warren, Tracy Anne "Wicked Delights of a Bridal Bed" (Byrons of Braebourne #4)--4 Stars (REVIEW)
-Historical Romance. Nice approach to the hero's unrequited love storyline.
11. Wolff, Veronica "Devil's Own" (Clan MacAlpin #2)--4 Stars
-Historical Romance. Two tortured souls that found each other in the strangest way. The heroine is one of my favorites this year!
