My Review

What I liked about King’s Ransom 

  1. Again (as with the last couple of books), it had hot werewolf sex.
  2.  The characters were somewhat relatable.
  3.  I liked Perrin’s character, a lot. He cracked me up, for some reason.

What I didn’t like about King’s Ransom 

*The sex. I was burnt out on the sex by the time the characters got around to it

*The plot. It confused me. The book started off with a werewolf that was trying to take over all of the packs. It ended with Ardalyn and Ryman’s relationship.

* I couldn’t stand Ardalyn’s character. I wanted to reach through the pages and bitch slap her. She was this tough woman until she met Ryman and then it was the opposite. Plus, she started acting like a spoiled brat.

Would I read King’s Ransom again? Yup

Would I recommend King’s Ransom to other people? Yes but with the warning that it was erotica. Erotica doesn’t float a lot of people’s boat if you know what I mean.

My review:

What I liked about Night Wish:

  1. It had hot vampire sex. Lots of hot vampire sex. Even the bad guys got it on and had paragraphs devoted to their sex. Plus, whenever they had sex, they caused earthquakes or thunderstorms. Which, to me was interesting.
  2. I did like the story between Hayden and Chandra. Stripped down to the bones (ie no hot vampire sex), it was very sweet.
  3.  I also liked that Hayden wasn’t your typical vampire.

What I disliked about Night Wish:

  1. The hot vampire sex got old after a while. Only so much hot vampire sex scenes I could take before I started giggling.
  2. The fact that they had sex and drank each other’s blood kinda skeeved me out. Strike that. Not kinda skeeved me out….110% skeeved me out.
  3.  I wish that the ending didn’t seem so rushed and that they didn’t kill the main villain off so fast.

Would I read it again? Yup

Would I recommend it to other people? Yup
