Intentions of the Earl (Scandalous Sisters #1) by Rose Gordon

Intentions of the Earl (Scandalous Sisters #1)Intentions of the Earl by Rose Gordon
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’ve always been a fan of regency romance novels. As long as there’s a “royalty” in the title, I surely can’t pass it up. This is the first book I’ve read from Rose Gordon. I like how she builds the characters, including their flaws and weaknesses. I like her writing style, although there are parts that are unnecessary which makes the story longer. Overall, I think I’d be open to read more of Rose Gordon’s books.

Desires of a Baron (Gentlemen of Honor, #2) by Rose Gordon

Desires of a Baron (Gentlemen of Honor, #2)Desires of a Baron by Rose Gordon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I like how the author created flawed characters with the “happy ever after” they both deserved. The plot is well-developed along with the twists and turns that keeps it connected with the other books in this series. As a regency romance fan, a story created with creativity and research is a must because building a world with lords and ladies is never easy. This doesn’t disappoint. Highly recommended!

Paranormal Protection Agency (Book 1-5) by Mina Carter

Paranormal Protection Agency (Paranormal Protection Agency, #1 - #5)Paranormal Protection Agency by Mina Carter

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Stars: 3.5

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Short and definitely HOT! The book includes 5 short stories that are interconnected, which makes it more interesting. Despite the limited introductions, the author was able to build the characters enough for you to understand their current situations. Short stories has its downside as well, and for this one, each story has more steamy scenes (60-70%) than the real story itself. It would have been much better if each story has more details like how do the PPA starts, how did the people accept the paranormal, when did they come out of the open, etc. Highly recommended to those who wants something sexy and steamy before bedtime.

Kairos, An Enmortals Series Novel by K.J. Coakley

Kairos, An Enmortals Series NovelKairos, An Enmortals Series Novel by K. J. Coakley

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

** I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal) **

Rate: 3.5 stars

This should have been a 4 or 4.5 stars for me because of the amazing plot; however, the erotic scenes have been over the top. Books with exquisite lovemaking really entices me, as long as the real plot isn’t being overshadowed. If I’m not mistaken, Kairos has more that 4 chapters of non-stop lovemaking and to think both characters barely knew each other while they’re at it. Fortunately, the real plot is really interesting, enough to keep me hooked until the end (I just scan through the sex scenes).

I like how chapter 9 & 10 rolls out. The torture scenes are very realistic, which kept me on edge until the end. I would love to learn more of the real story behind Sulwen’s bloodline, the Barrier, and their enemies. I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series and hoping for more scenes about Kairos.

Alex’s Destiny (Defender’s Blood #1) by A.K. Michaels

Alex's Destiny (Defender's Blood, #1)Alex’s Destiny by A.K. Michaels

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Rate: 4.5 stars

I wouldn’t be surprised if this will become a bestseller. The author sure knows how to incorporate her characters in an intricate plot that involves almost all creatures of paranormal. This is like a mashup of Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey, which makes it more interesting for adult fans of Paranormal. The sensual and exotic parts are definitely the thing that’s missing with the Twilight series. The book has so many characters and at first I almost got lost in knowing who’s who but as I read on, I begin to accept the fact that everyone has his/her own part to play and they are essential to make the story as good as it is. Personally, it would have been great if Alex has her own powers (not just special blood, which is kinda bland).

The reason I’ve given this 4.5 stars is that there are some annoying parts that I can’t help but notice. One of this is when the portal is closed, the story begins to progress rapidly, and I mean RAPIDLY. I can’t help but feel it was written that way just to finish the book. Another is there are some unnecessary scenes, which I think the book will progress nicely with or without it. (Ex. Scene with the pilot)

Overall, the plot is definitely something and it really makes up for the bad. I would definitely watch out for the rest of this series and I would highly recommend this to adult paranormal fans.

Before He Was Famous by Becky Wicks

Before He Was Famous (HotFlush, #1)Before He Was Famous by Becky Wicks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First off, I would like to advise you to have a hanky on hand as this will bring you tears of joy, sadness, and triumph. It also includes unlimited romance and butterflies in your stomach. =D

This is the first time I read a novel from Becky Wicks and I was reluctant at first. I assume that it will go along the usual story line and cheesiness like in most romance novel, but I was so wrong. With the first few chapters alone, I was totally HOOKED! This is one of the few novel’s I’ve read that doesn’t have any dull pages. I know that even some of the famous novels has its own dreary parts where we tend to skim just to reach the exciting ones, but this one is truly different. The author really knows what she’s doing and you can see that she really has the edge in becoming a great (& famous!) author.

The plot is very well-researched, as if you’re actually thrown in the midst of the rich and famous. I didn’t find any loopholes in the story line, which is usually the first thing I’d notice when reading a book. The characters are well created and established, making them all essential in building up the story. One of the lines I would never forget is “You have to fight to stay on the shore, no matter how many times it pushes you away.” I can’t wait to watch this line being told on the big screen. I wouldn’t even be surprised when this happens. This novel never fails to surprise me and the story’s twists and turns are definitely something to look forward to.

I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to fall in love again. This is definitely one of the stories you’ll never forget.

Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase

Suddenly RoyalSuddenly Royal by Nichole Chase

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Royal love stories never fail to excite me. Most of us did fantasize that we are royal ourselves though most wouldn’t admit they did. Well, this story by Nichole Chase will bring back those memories again. It’s a fast, easy and fun read. This also reminds me of The Princess Diaries but in a racy and exciting way. I like the way the main characters are built at the start though they do turn flat towards the end because of their predictability. Some characters also aren’t explored enough which make them unconvincing and unimportant. There may be a few gaps and inconsistencies in this book but it allays this with the exciting royal set-up and steamy scenes. I recommend this book if you’re into royal plots with a sexual twist.
