For most of my career, I’ve been a loyal KU author, sticking through it despite the changes that Amazon made. Some of the changes I liked. For example, I’m a fond fan of the pages read system–with a caveat. It’s broken, and because it’s broken, I’m…

For those of you who might want a chance for a new e-reader or a pretty nice gift card for a summer reading binge...!

The Cat's Review:

This hot, fun urban fantasy read is action packed & entertaining. My human has selected Darius as a book boyfriend.

While book two didn't make my human gibber or giggle as manically as book one, she still enjoyed it. We've read his one several times together!

I give it 5/5 paws. Any book capable of making my human read it to me twice is a good book.

P.S.: Any heroine capable of resisting Darius is seriously badass.

The Human's Review:

Darius! /swoon

A Note from the Cat: My human is not seriously badass.

The Cat's Review:

I think my human has a crush on the male demon in this steamy urban fantasy read about witches and demons and... slaughter. I liked the slaughter bits. Also, I'm tired of how much she likes this book, and she simply refuses to stop giggling over it.

For some odd reason, my male human appreciates her enjoyment of this book?

Humans are so weird.

The Human's Review:

What the cat said.

Note: This is a steamy read inappropriate for children. Adults only.

The Cat's Review:

I was pleased this gargoyle mating ritual urban fantasy book had substance--and dead bodies. 3.75 paws!

The Human's Review:

This was a weird one; by cover and description, this is supposed to be a pretty steamy read. Honestly, I picked this one up because a friend found it, and the cover cracked her up so much I grabbed it on a free day to read.

I was amused by the book. I found it lagged in places, and while it had more substance than most steamy-presented books, I found it couldn't quite meet up to what I expect from a 'cleaner' urban fantasy while it also missed the mark on what I expect from a 'steamy' urban fantasy. It was one of those books that was just stuck in between.

Was it bad? No. Will I read it again? Probably not.

Note: I got this book when it was available for free. I have no idea if it's still a free read.

Expect reviews to be posted tomorrow, including some newer stuff, some old favorites, and so on. Expect shenanigans. My curator, the cat, is currently sleeping on assignment, but promises she'll be posting tomorrow on my behalf.
