Sometimes, it takes a villain to do a hero’s job…
Mauler is missing, presumed dead.

Although Caprice is certain the cheery werewolf has shuffled off the mortal coil, his vampire partner Adira insists he’s alive, lost in the forest which came alive around them and swallowed him whole. Their investigation into his disappearance awakens a force which was best left slumbering: Pangea.

When Pangea threatens her beloved city, the villainess Capricious Whim bursts into action, doing everything within her considerable power to turn the threat back… including working with the heroes. Amidst the push and pull of her many working partnerships, Caprice struggles with her enemies, her allies, and herself to organize the biggest strike force Imperial City has ever seen, but will it be enough?

This novel is for mature readers only and contains explicit descriptions of violence and sexual situations. It is dark fantasy/science-fiction centering on a villain as the protagonist and is not for the faint of heart!

 

 

 

 

This was good, but I’m still left with a TON of questions. The Knight of Disks really only answered one question for me…. Rory.

Caprice is still a badass and has a lot of personal growth. She is making friends but still reminding them who she is at her core. Although, I think she is a hero trapped in a villains body. LOL! Caprice would totally gut me for saying that.

So, this story took a left turn for me. It was good and exciting and had a lot of action, but it seemed like the story got a mind of its own and it was difficult to figure out where to go. I’m talking about the Green Meanie, Pangea.

The story was all about her. Pangea this and Pangea that. Here a Pangea, there a Pangea, everywhere a Pangea. This bitch was literally everywhere and was… well… a bit underwhelming. I wanted to know more about Caprice and what is locked away in her head. I feel that we are even further away from unlocking the mystery that is Caprice.

I guess I’ll have to wait for that. Anyway, Caprice the Villain makes a deal with a White Hat to save her city. Ahem… hero…. Well, she rallies the other villains for a once in a life time deal that is very difficult to pass up. The catch, you have to battle Pangea and you have to trust that the White Hats wont fuck you over.

There was this guy, named Lethal, (I think) and he made me laugh. He wasn’t in the story too much, but some of the stuff he said made me giggle a little.

 

 

“God damn fucking puke fuckers making me come to this stupid dark shitty plant cave, he grumbled to all of us. What in the shitty ass hell was I thinking about? Going to get cock smoked here by these doorknob fucking shit gobblers, I just know it. Fuck me through a rotating pastry with a chainsaw! All of them are asshole tuna queens! Why did I ever….”

 

 

There was some sex in the book, but not a lot. And to be honest… I’m happy about that. I’ve personally been in a book funk and I really enjoyed the action/adventure of the story rather than the sexy side. But the sex that’s in here, is really great. 🙂

For me… the ending was anticlimactic. I was really expecting a lot more. Maybe that’s the book funk still lingering, I dont know.

Overall, I really enjoyed the book. This author is an instant buy for me. She is great with world building and I really enjoy every trip I have taken into her twisted mind.

Review~Rough & Tumble by Rhenna Morgan

Title: Rough & Tumble 
Series: The Haven Brotherhood #1
Author: Rhenna Morgan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 368
Heat Level: 3 out of 4 flames
Overall Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society’s expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other’s backs.

A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore’s hidden wild side and knows she’s his perfect match, if only he can break it free. He will have her. One way or another.

Vivienne’s determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she’s built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv’s plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club’s clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.

Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society’s walk and talk society’s talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He’s proud of who he is and where he came from, and he’ll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.

Review

This was my first book by this author. I liked a lot about it and had an issue with part of it also.

What I liked:

Characters primary and secondary both.

Brotherhood-camaraderie

Suspense-enough to keep it interesting

Sex scenes- nice and graphic

What I didn’t like:

It seems the author couldn’t decide if this was a group of ex-military buddies or an MC

This wasn’t an MC like I thought

It was a good book that I enjoyed and may go on to read the rest of the series as it releases.

Review~Mistrust by Kathryn Kelly

Title: Mistrust

Author: Kathryn Kelly
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Pages: 469
Heat Level: 4 out 4 flames
Overall Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

When Roxy Doucette meets the all too handsome, Knox Harrington, sparks fly. He’s the new assistant to the club’s attorney. However, Christopher “Outlaw” Caldwell, the club’s president, is suspicious of Knox’s true reasons for being there. Something about Knox just rubs Outlaw the wrong way, therefore, he asks Roxy to get Knox into bed for some “pillow talk”. At first, she’s outraged at Outlaw’s proposal, but accepts that he might be right and the club could be in jeopardy. She agrees to “date” Knox and the war of wills begin.
Born in wealth and privilege, Knox Harrington is a former police officer who has little regard for biker clubs. In particular, the Death Dwellers, and ESPECIALLY the president. Now a private investigator, Knox is working on behalf of his uncle to bring Outlaw and the Dwellers down. The club members’ nefarious deeds warrant their destruction. Knox intends to achieve that by any means possible.
When he meets the beautiful, formidable Roxy, there’s instant attraction between them. However, he sees an opportunity to use her to ferret information about the club. He’s over-the-top-arrogant, believing the ignorance and stupidity of Outlaw will ultimately be the club’s downfall. Knox hasn’t a clue that Roxy is on to him. She’s also attracted to him.
Aside from the safety of the club, Roxy’s in it for the benefits. She has a new lease on life after surviving cancer. Besides Knox’s low-down behavior, she’s a 44-year-old, mother of four children and Knox is ten years younger than she is. However, she can’t resist the challenge when Knox lets it be known that he’s the sharpest tool in the shed. He sure the hell is a tool. The foolish kind and Roxy is determined to teach him a lesson or two.
Let the games begin.

Review

I enjoyed this novel like I always enjoy a Kathryn Kelly penned novel. All the characters that I love or love to hate were present and accounted for. I’ve loved Roxy since she steamrolled into the series. She seemed to bring balance to the club and the clubhouse. The men respected her and the women needed her. None more so than Kendall, whose need for a mother/friend never fails to be heart wrenching to read about.

My only complaint is that I never liked Knox or felt any connection between he and Roxy. It never felt natural and it never rang true. I was glad Roxy got an HEA, I just didn’t care for who he was. Other than that, I loved it. It had suspense, humor and hot sex. I’m so sad that this series appears to be coming to an end. It was a great series to lose yourself in. Rumor has it, maybe she’ll write about the kids of the MC. If she does, I’m so there. Until then then, a piece of my heart lies in Hortensia.
