Review of A Spy to Die For


A SPY TO DIE FOR may be purchased here.

A SPY TO DIE FOR
Kris DeLake

Agent Skylight "Sky" Jones, a spy for the Assassins Guild, meets Jack Hunter, a former spy for the Federated Rover Assassins.  The attraction between the two is instantaneous, and they have a one-night stand.  Sky kind of regrets, that she may never see Jack again, but then she overhears the head of the Rovers putting a hit out on Jack.  After this, Sky and Jack are on the run, not knowing who to trust.

With combustible chemistry, Jack and Sky make for one hot couple.  I really like the fact, that these two slowly grow into a relationship, after being forced to work together.  Jack and Sky make a formidable team, each bringing their own strengths to the table, and they are true partners by the end.  A SPY TO DIE FOR is, also, filled action and adventure.

Overall, A SPY TO DIE FOR is a very enjoyable science fiction romance with great characters and an intense action-filled plot.  I'm really hoping, that there will be another book in this series, soon.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an unbiased review.

Review of Beckman


BECKMAN may be purchased here.

BECKMAN
Grace Burrowes

Beckman Haddonfield, son to the Earl of Bellefonte, is sent by his ailing father to oversee the running of one of his grandmother's properties.  Once there, Beckman meets the very attractive housekeeper, Sara Hunt, Sara's daughter, and the cook, Sara's sister.  It is apparent, that the Hunt's are keeping secrets, and, then, someone starts sabotaging Beckman's efforts to improve the property.

BECKMAN is the fourth book in the Lonely Lords series, but it can be read alone.  While I enjoyed BECKMAN, it is my least favorite book in the series, so far.  The truth of the matter is, that I found Sara a little annoying, because she wavered in telling Beckman her true situation a little to long.  While I understand Sara's mistrust of men after her experiences, she just couldn't seem to overcome her fears in a decent amount of time.  However, Sara has some very good qualities, in that, she is willing to sacrifice and work hard for her family.  Beckman is an equally likable hero, although his guilt over his wife's death seemed a little excessive, at times.  The secondary characters are great, and I can't wait for the next book.

NOTE;  I received this book in return for an impartial review.

Review of Smoking Hot


SMOKING HOT may be purchased here.

SMOKING HOT
Karen Kelley

Dillion Taylor, a nephilim, whose father is an angel and mother is a human, decides to help deputy Raine McCandless, because he can hear Raine's grandfather's prayers for help.  Over the years, the nephilim have aided humans, whose prayers they can hear.  Raine has returned to her small Texas hometown to help her grandfather save his ranch.  Unfortunately, the task is almost overwhelming, because of their financial situation and her grandfather's tendency to save animals.

SMOKING HOT is a paranormal romance with likable characters and a good mystery.  Dillion has powers but, also, the weaknesses of a human and this makes him susceptible to the attraction, that he feels for Raine.  Dillion tries his best to help Raine, but somehow, usually makes the situation worse.  In this case, Dillion makes for a rather inept guardian angel.  Raine is a stubborn, take-charge woman, who doesn't allow anyone to get too close to her.  After her mother leaves and her father drinks himself to death, Raine decides not to let anyone close, because of how love affected her father.  However, a certain nephilim gets past her shields, even though, she fights the attraction.  There is a fairly good mystery contained within this book.  I didn't figure out the culprits until nearly the end.  I have one small quibble with SMOKING HOT, in that, the ending seems a little abrupt.  Other than this SMOKING HOT is an enjoyable read, which I recommend.
