The Blurb:

Vampires in America: The Vampire Wars, Book 12
Ireland—a land of magic and fantasy, of fierce warrior kings and fairy mounds . . . and, of course, vampires who’ve been around for nearly as long as those beguiling fey.

Brilliant and ambitious, Quinn Kavanagh was aiming for the top, even before he was turned. But now, as a powerful vampire lord, he’s driven by the demands of his blood, compelled to conquer and destroy, to defeat Ireland’s criminal ruler, and make the territory a better place for all its vampires and humans alike. 

Smart and beautiful, Eve Connelly was a graduate student with life’s endless possibilities stretched out before her. She knew nothing of vampires and didn’t care . . . until she watched two of them murder her beloved brother. Now she’s driven, too. But she doesn’t want to help Ireland’s vampires—she just wants to kill them.

Bound together by love and hate, Quinn and Eve will risk everything to bring down the bloody regime of Ireland’s current vampire ruler. But in order to find revenge for Eve and the ultimate power for Quinn, they first have to learn to trust each other. And that might be the most dangerous thing of all . . . .

My Review

3 Where is the love Stars

*Mild Spoilers

I love the Vampires in America series. I adore almost anything D.B. Reynolds writes, but this one while entertaining was not as good for me as past books. The reason this was only a 3 star read for me was because I didn't feel the love. Quinn and Eve had very little time together and their relationship was very superficial. I didn't feel a connection or a bond, because there was no real build up, no real time spent together. Just some lust and a few hook up and then I love yous at the end. Now while the relationship felt lacking, Quinn and Eve individually were very likable. 

I loved Quinn he was almost perfect. The only thing he did that made me lose a little love for him was when he fed from another women. See I could have forgave that, but later he went to that same woman planning on feeding and having sex with her. Eve caught him and was like WTF and he was like I'm a vamp I need to feed and have sex and we aren't together. Even though they had been sleeping together. Then he turned with the other woman and walked away. Of course he doesn't touch the other woman because Eve stopped him and let him feed from her instead. The problem was that I didn't like him even thinking about having sex with another woman when he and the heroine had already been together. Even if they were not a couple yet. I still loved Quinn and that was the only time in my eyes he wasn't awesome. Eve on the other hand was likable but sometimes came off really childish. She let her mother treat her like poo. She would put herself in dangerous situations and was so closed minded about vampires that it came off immature. I did find her sassy, and brave. But I would have liked it better if she would have told her mom off or something. 

The action in the book was good, the plot too. I loved Quinn's vampire power. The last boss battle was good. I just really wished A) there would have been more romance and B) I would have like some Raphel and Cyn. They are my favorite! Now even thought I didn't like this book as much as others I still enjoyed it. I still love this series and plan on reading the next book as soon as it comes out!

My Review

4 Tangled up in love Stars

Love at Last by Claudia Connor was a sweet, cute, and easy going read. I'm a huge fan of Claudia Connor and have been since I read Worth the Fall. She has a knack for writing sexy, sweet, and protective heroes that really stand out. Dr Deacon Montgomery was a yummy single dad and a vet. Good with kids and animals.... so swoon worthy! Deacon made the book for me. Clare on the other hand at times annoyed me. She was likable, but I felt she was too standoffish, for way too long. Some push/pull was understandable but she took to long to come around for my taste. Other than the few times Clare bugged me the read for the most part was very enjoyable. I found myself unable to put it down and I stayed up to 4am finishing it. I really liked Clare's bf Jess and her brother. I could totally see them as a couple. I kinda hope they get their own book. Another sweet read from Claudia Connor!

The Blurb:

Parisa Lovejoy is so beautiful, and so powerful, that Antony cannot fight the feelings she arouses. But his unexpected love only intensifies his strength as her Guardian—a strength that is put to the ultimate test when Parisa is abducted. Her captor, Commander Greaves, enslaves mortal women for their blood. If Parisa hopes to survive—and ascend—she must forge an even deeper bond with Antony…in the flames of eternity.
My Review

For me The series is getting alittle better with each book. I liked this book a lot better then the last two and I like a lot of the recurring characters and the building of their personalities and the world ... This book would have been a whole lot better if I liked Parisa which I didn't.  She was a whiny chicken most of the book.  Also do they all have to fight the breh-hedden so damn much.   Really I would think finding your mate would be a great thing not like the plague.   Don't get me wrong I like a build up in a love story but they so far are all like... "I Like you, no I hate you , no I like you, but I can't let myself like you, I like you again ,no I don't wanna be your mate I feel trapped"!   I mean really It must be so hard to find your mate who is sexy, sweet, manly, strong, and great in the sack why would anyone want that!!!! I hope at least one couple doesn't fight it til the last few pages for God sake the drama can come for the war or something else can't they have a pretty romance just sayin! I am looking forward to Fiona and Jean-Pierre's story a lot I was so happy when she found out her daughter was alive......... over all good read

Archer's Voice

Book Review of Archer's Voice

Title: Archer's Voice

Series: Stand Alone

Author: Mia Sheridan

Date Published:   November 1st 2016

Date Read: February 3, 2018 

The Blurb:

When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.

My Review

4.5 Seeing Archer Stars

Mild Spoilers

"How do you teach a man who has lost everything, not to fear it happening again? How do you teach a person to trust in something none of us can guarantee?”-Bree

OMG I loved Archer's Voice. This was my first Mia Sheridan read, and I just loved it so much!!!! Archer's voice was sweet, angsty without being over the top, and left me with a huge smile on my face. Mia Sheridan did a great job of bringing the hero and heroine to life. I was completely invested in both Bree and Archer. Her writing style totally worked for me. The story flowed well and I was never bored.

“I'm afraid to love you. I'm afraid that you'll leave and that I'll go back to being alone again. Only it will be a hundred times worse because I'll know what I'm missing. I can't…” He sucked in a shaky breath. “I want to be able to love you more than I fear losing you, and I don't know how. Teach me, Bree. Please teach me. Don't let me destroy this.”-Archer

Archer was amazing. He was so sweet and sexy at the same time. There was so much depth to his character. He lived through so much, but he was so brave. I loved how he realized he had a problem and went out and found out who he was. I fell madly in love with Archer. Bree was awesome too. She loved deeply, and had a strength that shined through the pages. I loved how she loved Archer just as he was. She was caring, understanding, and gave him space to learn who he was. She always waited for him and loved him unconditionally. She also had a painful past and had her own demons to battle. She was perfect for my Archer. 

“This is that burden I was talking about, Bree. This is what the burden of loving me looks like.” “Loving you isn't a burden. Loving you is an honor and a joy, Archer.”-Archer and Bree

Archer and Bree were absolutely beautiful together. Their love was heartwarming. I ate up every bit of their romance. There was a great building up their relationship. It felt real, strong and unique. I loved that [Archer was a virgin, Bree was his first everything.  
 There was something so captivating about their love. The vulnerability and tenderness that they shared with each other made this story something very special. The way they both supported each other..... omg total chills. And the sex, the sex was hot as hell. 

There has only ever been you. There. Will. Only. Ever. Be. You-Archer

The only thing I didn't like in this book was Travis and his bitch mom. OMG from the start I didn't like him and by the end of the book I wish him and his evil bitch mother would have gotten theirs. I felt they both got off after all the pain they caused and it pissed me off. Which is why I gave this book 4.5 stars instead of a full five. If Travis's mom ended up in Jail I would have been happy. Other than those two assholes this book gave me all the happy feels. The epilogue was everything I love. Completely swoon worthy. I am so happy I gave this book a try and I can't wait to read more books by Mia Sheridan!

“Someday, when we're old and gray, I'm going to look at you lying in bed beside me, just like this, and I'm going to look into your eyes and know that it's only ever been you. And that is going to be the great joy of my life, Bree Prescott.”-Archer
