Book Review: Taking Fire: A First Responder Novel

Book Title:  Taking Fire: A First Responder Novel
Author: Radclyffe

“Everyone knew the consequences of breaking the unwritten rules: never discuss the danger of going outside the wire, never brag about the girl waiting back home, never count the days until the end of tour. If you did, you might mistake that buried IED for a rock, or log on to the Dear John email, or get the last-minute change in your separation orders.”
Taking Fire by Radclyffe

Final Verdict: An okay summer read that started out great and petered off by the end.

Book Review: Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse #2)

Book Title: Living Dead in Dallas (Sookie Stackhouse #2)
Author: Charlaine Harris

“You’ve reached Fangtasia, where the undead live again every night. For bar hours, press one. To make a party reservation, press two. To talk to alive person or a dead vampire, press three. Or, if you were intending to leave a humorous prank message on our answering machine, know this: we will find you.” Voicemail at Fantasia, Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris

Final Verdict: Not the best in the series, but the future looks bright.

Book Review: The Lunatic Café (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #4)

Book Title: The Lunatic Café (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, Novel #4)
Author: Laurell K. Hamilton

I’ve survived a lot – from jealous vampires to killer zombies – but this love thing may kill me yet,” Anita Blake, The Lunatic Café by Laurel K. Hamilton

Final Verdict: If you like love triangles and romance, this will be the best in the series for you. If, like me, you like the butt kicking, zombie raiser and vampire executioner side of Anita Blake, this book will most likely fall flat for you.

Book Review: Fifty Shades Darker

Book Title: Fifty Shades Darker
Author: EL James

‘“Don’t leave me,” he whispers.
“Oh, for crying out loud—no! I am not going to go!” I shout and it’s cathartic. There, I’ve said it. I am not leaving.
“Really?” His eyes widen.
“What can I do to make you understand I will not run? What can I say?”
He gazes at me, revealing his fear and anguish again. He swallows. “There is one thing you can do.”
“What?” I snap.
“Marry me,” he whispers.’
Christian Grey, Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James

Final Verdict: If you want to read about sex, own it and read the Fifty Shades trilogy. There really isn’t any other reason.
