Moonglow (Darkest London, #2)Moonglow by Kristen Callihan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ok its official you ALL need to stop sleeping on the utter creativity and beauty this is Kristin Callihan; because this series is a notch above the rest.
4 **** ‘dark, paranormal, steampunk werewolf’stars

Her second installment in the incredibly creative “Darkest London” series is even more ingenious than the first one. Moonglow follows Miranda’s sister whom we met for a bit in the first book and she was HILARIOUS, everything she said had me literally cackling and her story is just as intense as her sister’s.
There is a rogue danger Were loose in Victorian London and he’s killing women who all have acquired the very specific blend of scents that Daisy made and sold to her perfumer. (Actually I think the perfumer sold her blend without her knowing)
Ian and Daisy meet when this were almost attacks her and then they very hesitantly band together to try and solve this mystery. Along the way they get to know each other more and we the reader get to fall deeper into this magical, steam punk London where things really aren’t what they seem.
I really enjoyed this! This series is really like a less dark and more romantic Penny Dreadful.

Daisy Ellis Craigmore was so unique!
She is what is called a nose which means that she has a superior sense of smell. So she uses her talents to make unique one of kind perfumes! Her talent is even up to snuff with that of Ian the werewolf. I loved her diverse interest! We mostly get HR heroines who love books or love being annoying but she was interesting.
Daisy was CURVY I can’t express how amazing this was to read! We don’t get enough curvy women in any books ever and her curves were only celebrated by her sexy redheaded Scottish lord Ranulf.
I loved Lord Ranulf. What character development! He kinda sucked in the first book with his whole obsession with Miranda and all but he was just a lost soul…who was totally found lol
If you know me at all you know I love the following things
->Scottish men
-> Red heads
-> Victorian London
-> Werewolves

And this has LITERALLY ALL OF THEM

I dont really want to be honest about how I feel about this…’thing’ because I don’t want people to get angry but to me
-> this isn’t a book, its a novella…albeit a very badly done novella
-> this didn’t advance either of the series its a part of..at all
-> there was literally no…NO plot
-> I hate Mirceo
-> I don’t think you need to suffer through this in order to read the next in the series
-> This wasn’t sexy
-> I’m so incredibly disappointed in this..its obvious that KC didn’t care about this thing or want to write it and it so shows this isn’t what she writes and just the fact that we have to wait a year for more of her paranormal books..and get this steaming pile of shit is inexcusable to me

I’ve alwasy been such a fan of this author her book was one of the very first romances I’ve EVER read and I couldn’t stomach the last book in her Professionals series..didn’t even finish it…and now this….makes me thing that Wicked Abyss is going to be horrible

fuck this

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

orgininal rating 3 stars

*****ReRead April 2017*****
2.25 stars………………………

ugh oh my lord….I really didn’t like this book….was it me? I wonder. I kept trying to rationalize my feelings : ‘Maybe its because I’ve reread 6 of these in a row’ ‘Maybe its because I just read Phury’s book and I loved that one.’ ….yea that was denial Im () this close to hating this book..and here are my thoughts

what I liked
* I loved Ehlena! she was so strong and hardworking, relatable even she was just a blue collar vampire and its important that we got to see that side of vampire canon in the BDB series.
-> her first scene with Rehv I loved! and every scene in the beginning at least…with them I was all about.
* LOVED the Wrath POV ..like 100X percent. And I loved the problems he was having with Beth in this one. Their marital problems are so human and realistic, they added another dimension to their character their relationship and the story as a whole. Relationships are the same no matter your species.
* loved how Rehv yearned for Ehlena..he was such a torturned character so loyal and long suffering it broke my heart.
*Every single time. Saxton was in the picture..which was I think twice.

What I didn’t like
* sympaths…just the whole idea of them I didn’t understand why JR created them..we dont even hear about them again later in the series..they’re fucking disgusting I hate them so much
*the fucking princess…I hated her with everything in me
*the long extensive scenes of Rehv fucking the princess..who also is his fucking half sister! I know they’re sympaths but what the fuck that was NOT OK and super even more not ok when you count the fact they they had more sex scenes together than Rehv and Ehlena..and why did you include the scenes anyway! fucking incest is disgusting
*Xhex I skipped almost all of her POV scenes I can safely say I hate her now I dont even care that she got kidnapped by Lash she sucks shes a bad character. the way she treated JM is inexcusable to me… I dare someone try and defend her.

I’m sure theres more that I detested but I just want to wipe this book off of my memory…maybe take a break from my reread because honestly I’m not that jazzed about reading lover mine…I now remember the first time I read these books and I skimmed alot …which I did again now totally skimmed the ending totally skimmed the the incest scenes after the first one skipped Lash And now I’m in a book funk and nothing pleases me so thanks fucking Rehvenge and Ehlena you fucking suck

5 amazing big z and Bella stars

*******spoilers********

oh this book was everything! so much emotion so much pain and hurt saturated every single page
I was dazed with Z’s intense focus on rescuing Bella it made me warm! oh I just could not with all the emotions in this book!

zsadist and bella photo tumblr_ntx8vwb1Bo1qetmbko1_500_zpszvht3rjl.png

Z’s past made me cry! way more this time around…wow just wow and the way Bella was with him I was awe every time they were together. Before the rescue the way he tended to her things he is so tender and was just waiting for someone like her all along.
Z is
dark, menacing and dangerous
you wouldn’t believe he had a tender side…women are scared of him but Bella fuck that she isn’t having it.

As much as I love Z I was absolutly GUTTED by Phury..his devotion and self sacrifice to his twin..I’m in love with him. he’s such a hero and he doesn’t get enough love! Phury is like the Ringo Star of the black dagger brotherhood

I was SHOCKED when he sorta bonded with Bella as well! I forgot that happened and I didn’t think it was even allowed it jsut made me feel even more bad for him..

Bell was the perfect match for him! it was honestly like they were the beauty and the beast it was so beautiful this was such a beautiful story! just watching bella try so hard to love him and him try so hard not to love her..ugh my soul.


” You have awakened me.”

Lover Enshrined (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #6)Lover Enshrined by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every star I could ever give.
I feel as if I’ve been altered.

I don’t want to say too much and scew any perceptions of this book but I will say I genuinely do not understand, for the life of me, how people disregard, dislike or detest Phury or this book. wow just wow

I just read the last scene and I couldn’t stop the streams of tears falling down my face. There is so much in this book so much feeling, so many journeys, so much discovery and rediscovery. and oh the redemption..blessed scribe virgin the redemption in this beautiful book..

Please give Phury a chance, simply because he doesn’t give himself one.
I’m not doing this justice there’s so much I wanted to say..I just can’t stop crying…wow wow JR wow thank you.
this is my favorite of the series.

I wont ever be able to hear ‘che gelida manina’ and not think of Phury brooding in his room or of his beautiful redemption.
