Review: A Baby for the Alien Prince

A Baby for the Alien Prince A Baby for the Alien Prince by Miranda Martin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The title for this book almost doesn't fit. There is only one little section that has to do with a baby. I think a better title would have been 'A Mate for the Alien Prince' or something along that line. It was an interesting book. I got a few laughs out of her learning the language. Overall, it is a nice pleasant love story.

Review: Better Off Dead

Better Off Dead Better Off Dead by H.P. Mallory
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I thought the synopsis sounded good but the book is so much better than I imagined. I love the characters. Bill is a hoot! He is not at all angelic! I just couldn't put the book down. Quite honestly, I can't understand some of the other reviews. The book is hilarious and I can't wait to read more of this series.

Review: Parlez-Vous Murder?

Parlez-Vous Murder? Parlez-Vous Murder? by Susan Kiernan-Lewis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a fun little cozy mystery. The MC has a unique last name that made me grin every time the cop called her Madame Hooker. I always thought the idea of a house swap would be fun. However, the situation in this book would so not be fun. Of course, who goes to another country without learning the language first? Overall, it was a fun mystery that is perfect for those days that you just want to curl up with a cozy mystery and cup of hot chocolate.

Review: The Pandora Principle

The Pandora Principle The Pandora Principle by Noree Cosper
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Seeing all the good reviews on this book, I was excited to read it. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a letdown. Normally, I love books with gods in it. This one just didn't interest me as much as I expected it to. It wasn't horrible. It was an ok story. It just doesn't draw the reader in. The characters are more one dimensional which doesn't really make the reader like them much. I couldn't connect with the MC and really didn't care for her much. Overall, it wasn't horrible but it was definitely lacking something.

Review: Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast by Vivienne Savage
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is no secret that I love fairy-tale re-tellings. This one did not disappoint! I loved that the author used a very different type of beast in this story. This is a sweet story and I love how it all played out. I just couldn't put it down and I read it completely in one sitting. I will definitely be looking for more by this author.

Review: Becoming Alpha

Becoming Alpha Becoming Alpha by Aileen Erin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After I read the synopsis of this book, I couldn't wait to read it. I wasn't disappointed. I was pulled immediately into the story. I loved the characters and I only put the book down because my body said it had to sleep (bah! who needs that? LOL). I was pulled back into it once I resumed reading. I loved the werewolves. The reader doesn't really get much insight into the vampires but the witches did make a brief appearance. I hope the witches make a bigger appearance next time. With the MC in common, they could work together. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a great intro into the series and I can't wait to read book 2.

Review: Boogie House

Boogie House Boogie House by T. Blake Braddy
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I picked up this book to read for a Goodreads challenge because I needed a book with a house on the cover. The problem with reviewing a book like this is that I had such a hard time getting into the story. I pushed forward thru the book in the hopes that it would pick up. Unfortunately, it just never did. The MC was always drunk so I really couldn't relate to him much. I really didn't care for any of the characters. The book isn't horrible but it simply didn't interest me. Overall, this book wasn't for me.
