Razor’s Edge #Review

Luce Potter lives by a code of honor. Push her and she shoves back, harder. There’s only one problem: Luce has just found out that revenge is a knife that cuts both ways. Now that her lover Brooke has survived the attack on her life, Luce has only one thing on her mind, and his name is Frank. Unfortunately, someone walks into her life that she didn’t see coming.

Brooke Erickson has survived an attack so brutal it’s left a permanent scar on her soul. All she wants to do now is go home and finish recuperating with her lover, Luce Potter, by her side. An unexpected event puts Brooke at the head of the Yakuza family. Can she command the respect necessary to lead it through the crisis?

Luce and Brooke’s worlds are upending. Can each do what’s necessary to survive and return to a new normal?

Yakazuta Luce has been kidnapped and is being held prisoner by the Russian mob. This, after they attempted to kill her girlfriend Brooke and Luce in turn, kidnapped the leader’s wife and they want her back. While Luce is missing Brooke must step up and make some difficult decisions to keep Luce’s organization in place. This is I believe the third book in this series and I’ve not really read a lot about Japanese organized crime, maybe if I had started from the beginning or knew more about Japanese culture I would have enjoyed it more, my biggest problem though was I felt that the two main characters Luce and Brooke were incongruent from scene to scene. I would imagine being a Yakazuta, you’d have to be somewhat of a bad ass, but I didn’t find Luce to be. On the flip side, Brooke was portrayed to be a good girl out of her element, and she had more bad ass moments. There were also some editing issues that detracted from the story. I rate this book 3.5 hearts.

Destiny of the Dragon Prince by Selina Coffey #Dragons #review #paranormal

Dragons aren’t real. That’s what the humans should believe, and the magical world wants to keep it that way.

As the Prince, it is Malcolm’s duty to make sure that the magical world he inhabits remains in order and stays hidden from mankind.

Dragon hunters are a thing of the past. Or so everyone thought.

When Malcolm’s father, the King, calls upon him to kill a dragon hunter, he is shocked to discover not only that the hunter is weak and deathly ill but his desire to protect her grows stronger and stronger…

Author’s Note: This book contains mature language and themes, intended for adults only. For a limited time, a small selection of bonus books are included in this edition.

This book is the 1st in the series and ends in an HEA. Arista has an unexplained illness. She visits her estranged mother and is informed she is a dragon hunter from long ago. Her powers are long gone, though. Malcolm is a dragon prince and is charged with killing all dragon hunters. When he finds Arista he realizes she is his mate and he is unable to kill her. Their mating does heal Arista’s illness.

>Malcolm’s father, the dragon king, tortures both Arista and Malcolm in order to break their bond. The book spends a lot of time with Malcolm and Arista running and hiding. When the king is not successful, he gives up. That plot point was just dropped. Another strange plot point is the explanation of Arista’s illness. Malcolm tells the reader that now that their bond is complete, they will both die if separated. He will last longer than Arista. She could only last a week. When they are actually separated, though, Arista lasts and endures much better than Malcolm, which makes no sense.
>I am a reviewer for Romance Author’s that Rock. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving the story 4 stars. The plot needs a bit of work. There is an issue with wolves that is just thrown in, but not addressed, as well as the issues addressed above.

Shades of Valhalla by Ellis Logan #fae #paranormal

Enter the hidden world of the fae, the most ancient race on the planet and uncover the inner origins of humanity.

There is an unseen war going on between the Light and the Dark, and seventeen year old Siri Alvarsson holds the fate of the world in her hands. Her whole life has been leading up to this moment — training in martial arts and parkour with her mom, learning the legends of old and traveling from town to town. Now, she’s in a new town, she’s met a gorgeous guy she’d like to trust, and she’s having strange visions.

The pressure is on to choose a side. Both sides need her if they want to win. The futures of humanity, the fae, and the entire planet all depend on Siri. Which side will she choose? Can one girl really save the world alone?

Ellis Logan’s new YA Fantasy series, Inner Origins, is action-packed with magic and romance. The books combine fairies, Celtic/Norse mythology, and hollow earth theory to create an adventure you’ll never forget.

After Suri moves to Vermont from Arizona, it’s not just the weather she will need to get used to. Just a typical high school with her everyday teen problems, Oh and let’s not forget about the visions she’s having. Dark, light, fae? And she thought dealing with two handsome boys were here biggest problems. Little does she know of the war and she must ultimately take.
I totally loved the old legends in this story. But not something too heavy, but a wonderful change from what I normally read. Yes, its a young adult book with teen drama, but enough that it’s a great read for any adult. I did like how the author wrote the book. She grabbed me enough to hold on and keep them pages turning. The book definitely intrigued me and I am looking forward to reading more. I gave this a four star read and looking up the next in the series.

Raz by J.S. Striker #Review #vampire #paranormal

Ready for another great read from J. S. Striker?
Raz has no last name. Nor does he have a family or a life outside being the second-in-line to his vampire clan leader. It’s a life filled with power and politics, and it’s one that he rather enjoys.

Eva Thomason just wants to bake and live a peaceful life. But fate has other plans when her estranged brother suddenly dies, leaving behind his two kids who make her hair stand on end and tug at her heartstrings at the same time.

Join Raz on his next mission as he untangles a deep secret that could threaten to destroy his kind. A secret he can’t ignore…

Raz is the 10th book released in the Clan Legacy Series. It is 30,000 words. A HEA guaranteed and can easily be read as a standalone. This new read will leave you feeling sexy and satisfied!

This read like a novice writer wrote it. The creativity and imagination was full force but the writing fell short. It didn’t really draw you in with the way it was written. The relationship between our two main characters could have used more passion or chemistry to really make you feel the burn for each other. The twist was really cool and made the story more emotional. This story had a depth that touched your heart. There were minor grammatical and spelling errors. Based on content this book is 3.5 Hearts and is for an mature audience. I’m an independent reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock.
