Erotic Romance Early Review: The Billionaires by Calista Fox

The Billionaires by Calista Fox (Lover's Triangle #1)


Egalley courtesy of St. Martin's Griffin

Synopsis from Goodreads
100 Shades of Sin...

In The Billionaires, Calista Fox delivers a sexy and sensuous friends-to-lovers tale with a delicious love triangle twist.

Jewel Catalano, Rogen Angelini, and Vin D'Angelo had been childhood best friends, spending every possible moment with one another. Rogen became her first love, the first one to show her what pleasure could be. Until a volatile feud erupted between their powerful California wine country families and she and Rogen were torn apart from each other. What she didn't expect was to find comfort and passion like she had never known in Vin's arms and bed. But when that too ended in disaster, Jewel moved to San Francisco to work for the Catalano empire. Years later, a series of daring acquisitions brings Jewel back to River Cross, the hometown where Rogen and Vin have recently returned as well. Jewel has the curves, the smarts, and the success to bring any man to his knees—especially the two men who remained best friends and still burn to possess her.

Mixing family business with erotic pleasure ignites a smoldering love triangle. But in order to pull off the bold deal that will build the trios’ own legacy and to stay in their heady, sensual paradise, they must discover what true love really is—or lose everything their hearts' desire, in The Billionaires by Calista Fox.

 This was rather flowery, peeps, but also sweet and hot, so I'm of two minds about this book.

It's actually nice to have a working menage with a lighter atmosphere once in awhile, and this is exactly what you'll get here.

Friday Mini Reviews #101: Sierra Simone, J.D. Robb & Карина Демина


American Queen by Serra Simone (American Queen Trilogy #1)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
It starts with a stolen kiss under an English sky, and it ends with a walk down the aisle. It starts with the President sending his best friend to woo me on his behalf, and it ends with my heart split in two. It starts with buried secrets and dangerous desires…and ends with the three of us bound together with a hateful love sharper than any barbed wire.

My name is Greer Galloway, and I serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

This is the story of an American Queen.

Despite the predictability of the plot twists, I really enjoyed this book. It was cracktastic in a way Tiffany Reisz and C.D. Reiss books are. Very hot, very magnetic characters, great separation of the chapters going back & forth in time. You can see how talented the author is, and you bet your backside, I'll be grabbing book two in this series pretty soon. UPD: I am reading it right now! Recommended.

Несмотря на предсказуемый сюжет очень понравилось. По накалу страстей, по магнетичным персонажам напоминает Тиффани Райс и С.Д. Рейс. Классное разделение глав на прошлое и будущее. Видно, что очень талантливый автор, и я кстати уже читаю книгу вторую. Рекомендую!

Apprentice in Death by J.D. Robb (In Death #43)

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads

The shots came quickly, silently, and with deadly accuracy. Within seconds, three people lay dead at Central Park's ice skating rink. There's a sniper loose on the streets of New York City, and Lieutenant Eve Dallas is about to face one of the toughest and most unsettling cases of her career.
Eve knows that only a handful of people could have carried out such an audacious but professional hit. Even more disturbing: this expert in death has an accomplice. Someone is being trained in the science of killing - and they have a terrifying agenda of their own. With a city shaken to its core, Eve and her team are forced to hunt not one but two killers. Worse still - this talented young apprentice has developed an insatiable taste for murder...

8.5/10
Another fast-paced, entertaining, easy read with a great villain. J.D. Robb writes the best sociopaths, you know? *grins* There are some cute moments like Bella's birthday and Eve's office redesign scattered here and there - normal, everyday life, which only sweeten the whole experience that otherwise, would have been more formulaic. Recommended.
* * *
Ещё одна, наполненная экшном, развлекательная, читающаяся очень быстро книга. Классный злодей, но Джей Ди Робб всегда умеет зафигачить персонажей-социопатов ещё ого-го как! *смеясь* Есть и очень милые моменты, как например, день рождения Беллы или редизайн кабинета Ив, что оживляло в остальном формулаичный сюжет. Как обычно, рекомендую!

Невеста by Карина Демина

bought

Synopsis from Goodreads
Война закончилась, но в мире нет мира. И Оден, бывший пленник королевы Мэб, получает свободу, а с ней - шанс умереть от рук разъяренной толпы, ведь железных псов ненавидят на землях лозы. Его спасение и единственная надежда выжить — Эйо, альва-полукровка. С ее помощью получится пройти по заповедным тропам, добраться до перевала и избавиться от метки королевы. Для Эйо, вынужденной скрываться от охотников за живым товаром, Оден - обуза. Но дорога, разделенная на двоих, многое меняет. И неудобный спутник становится близким человеком, без которого невозможно представить ни дом, ни саму жизнь.
Вот только многим союз альвы и железного пса покажется противоестественным.

Ну вот, практически никогда не рецензирую книги на русском языке, а тут вышло, что подруга на Гудридс посоветовала мне почитать Невесту, так как я любительница творчества Грэйс Дрэйвен. И я конечно от неё оказалась в диком восторге! Превосходные герои, какая-то цепкая, немногословная и суровая любовь, в которой поступки кричат о чувствах, а не слова. Ну и естественно, богатый, интересный мир. Читалось на лету, очень рукомендую!

I almost never review books in Russian for obvious reasons, but my friend on Goodreads recommended me The Bride because I am a big fan of Grace Draven, and I loved it to bits! Awesome main characters, understated, quiet, harsh love of few words, which screams about its feelings with its deeds, not words, and of course, lush, gorgeous world-building. I am totally reading book two as soon as I have time. It was fabulous.

Urban Fantasy Book Review: Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs (Mercy Thompson #10)


Egalley courtesy of Ace Books

Synopsis from Goodreads
In the #1 New York Times bestselling Mercy Thompson novels, the coyote shapeshifter has found her voice in the werewolf pack. But when Mercy's bond with the pack and her mate is broken, she'll learn what it truly means to be alone...

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe...

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise...

 It's such a different experience to read an exceptional book instead of an ordinary one, peeps. I always thought of Mercy Thompson series as the former, not the latter, and Silence Fallen only strengthened my admiration for Patricia Briggs' talent.

 6/10

* * *
 I actually requested this book for review by mistake, peeps. I've wanted to read Anno Dracula for a long time and thought this was the actual novel and not the collection of stories.

Oh, well. I did enjoy some of the stories, and I did get a feel for Kim Newman's writing which is very much a mix between Justin Cronin and Joe Hill.

So, the stories.

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
