Review Round-up

I’m behind (what’s new?) in posting the great reviews I’ve received the past couple of weeks. Woot!!

The Reluctant Dom (writing as Tymber Dalton) received 5 canes from Bound to Review (Read full review.)

This is another emotionally charged unconventional book by Ms Dalton. It shows how many people have misconceptions about BDSM lifestyles and with just a little education they can understand. Seth starts out not knowing anything, other than the usual crap, about the BDSM lifestyle. I really enjoy books where you get to watch a character grow and learn. You get to do that with this book. …Since this book covers a variety of aspects yet keeps it on the mild end of the spectrum, it would be the perfect book for anyone who is curious about BDSM and beginners. I look forward to reading more from this talented author.

Love and Brimstone (writing as Lesli Richardson) received 4 angels from Fallen Angel Reviews (Read full review.)

Lesli Richardson never fails to deliver a well-written book that holds my attention from the beginning. Her writing voice is smooth and captivating, as are her world and character building skills.

I loved the new spin that was given on vampires in Love and Brimstone.Although they are still paranormal beings, Lesli has made them more human and approachable. The complex plot became more involved, with more twists and turns at every corner. I am so thankful that this is the first book in the series, because after over two hundred pages, I find myself still wanting much more from this story and the characters.

Anastazia faces more life-altering changes in a few days than anyone should have to endure. While she did get a bit whiny in the beginning, I think she handled it well overall. I enjoyed watching her figure out who she is and what she needs to do to become a better person…I always enjoy Lesli Richardson’s work and look forward to reading the next book in this series. I just have to know what is going to happen to Anastazia and Matthias next.

Three Dog Night (Triple Trouble 3) (writing as Tymber Dalton) received a Recommended Read and 5 angels from Fallen Angel Reviews (Read full review.)

This third book is the best book yet. It is always a pleasure to get to come back to characters with whom you have fallen in love and see them moving on in their lives. There is an element of suspense in this book that suggests that Elain could be in mortal danger. The answers to her unknown background are hinted at throughout the book, keeping me on the edge of my seat and guessing at the truth.

When I tie in those little pieces of information with what was going on with Elain, I am led to believe that all may not be well for her and her mates in the next book. The ending left me groaning in agony, because it confirmed some of my suspicions, and is leaving me hanging until the next book comes out.

I do have to mention that there is a questionable scene in the book, involving Micah and Jim. Micah is a cousin to the triplets, an alpha shifter, and he has found his One. I really don’t want to give away too much, but just know that some may perceive the scene as a form of rape. Tymber Dalton did a great job with the scene, making sure that we are given the viewpoint of the shapeshifters and their customs. I had no problem with the scene because it was written so well, as was the explanation that was given to Elain.
