Review: Stolen

Stolen
Stolen by Kelley Armstrong

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



I must say that this one was a little bit of a letdown from the first book. I honestly thought it was a sequel of sorts or at the least a continuation of Elena’s story as laid out it Bitten. While this book had Elena as our ever wry witted narrator it was very much a set up for the other supernatural beings’ stories in the series. As such, this...

I was in the mood for a light historical romance and so I jumped into this one. I enjoyed it but boy are Ellen and Edward an angsty duo.

I admit it. I was taken by the setting of this one. A manor house on an island off the coast of the Pacific Northwest & some dark mystery with And so I endured the insta-love (way too deep feelings when Kelly hadn't even been at Hawk Manor for 48 hours) & the predictability of this book (Kendra... who didn't see that coming? & so many...

Bold Tricks by Karina Halle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



The final installment in the Artists Trilogy was a fun ride. I must admit that I got everything tied up in pretty much the way I wanted it. I'm not usually a "must have HEA ending" kind of girl but I quite liked it here, even when I thought it was getting a bit soppy & bordering on eyeroll worthy (the Earth/Moon bit, so much). I was glad that I was...
