Negative (Terran Times Second Wave Book 19) - Viola Grace

hanged by an injury, Aster starts a new life as a bodyguard and finds herself falling for war, death and sex.

Aster’s assignment as a bodyguard suits her temperament. She likes to boss folks around while keeping them where they are supposed to be. A fan of order, she enjoys her position away from Earth on a world where her services can be of use.

Dressed up like a doll for a costume party, she finds that fighting is part of the local community tradition and calling upon an ancient god is also traditional. She just never expected him to answer.

Yodin is an immortal who has been looking for another of his kind. Aster has only recently shed her previous life and entered the endless lifespan that he currently enjoys, but he intends to introduce her to the pleasure of an eternity with the god of war, death and sex. (less)

 

 

Review

The heroine is kickass and bossy. The plot goes a little weird when gods come into play but its a nice quick science fiction romance read overall.

Ghost (Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club Book 8) Candace Blevins Review

4 Stars!

At eight years old, Hailey’s life took a turn for the better when her mom married Darnell, despite the fact she had to put up with his asshole son for a stepbrother. Eight years later — the day after her stepbrother graduated high school — Darnell and his son moved out, and the divorce was final six weeks later. She hasn’t seen either of them since.

Ghost works at the gun store, but one evening the MC is shorthanded and he’s sent to help watch over their stable of working girls. He walks in and smells Hailey, his ex-stepsister, and shortly thereafter drags her out and carries her home.

Brothers and sisters fight. It’s what they do. But when the worst happens, they’re there for each other. They haven’t seen each other in six years, but some things never change.

Review

I always wonder with this series if I am going to get pushed too far. Stepbrother stuff is not my bag. At all. Also, I tend to think that when an author choose to write it combined with the the motorcycle club stuff, they are just looking for a pay day and not also to write a good book.

I am pleased to support someone’s payday but not a bad book.

I read this despite my not loving BDSM and hate of Stepbrother romance.

And as always Blevins wrote a hell of a good book. Things get really dark with the topping but I am able to hang in there for that when it is paranormal in ways I just couldn’t in contemporary romance.

The heroine is fine with where she is at as the book opens but I am really not. It is one of my reservations about the book. I get that she has lots of grief and is likely in a depression over what she is has lost (but the writer doesn’t really detail this fully) but I can not believe as resourceful and self sufficient as this heroine is that she didn’t create different options for herself. I never buy it and think the opening of the book isn’t needed.

The rest of the book is crazy awesome sauce. The age gap and the the years apart take the eww at of the stepbrother thing and then the plot just takes off like a runaway train.

Great world building, steadfast hero, admirable heroine, sweet super hot romance, wonderful series plot arc, all sorts of surprises and action.

Just so very very good. All the little details, cast of characters, and character development add up to a wonderful tale.

This is a long lush never stop book that gives a great Happily Ever After coming out of a dark tunnel into the light.
