Swoon… I think Almost Just Friends by Jill Shalvis was my favorite Wildstone romance to date. I laughed, swooned, cried and damn it I want to book a room at the B&B and eat blueberry pancakes!
You know a book/series is a winner when you finish an eighteen hour audio and feel depressed because it’s over! Such was the case with Wild Country by Ann Bishop, the second book in the World of Others and seventh in the Others series.
Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis is the seventh novel in the Heartbreaker Bay series. I loved Sadie and Caleb’s story from beginning to end! Prepare to fall in love with the cutest dog ever!
The Crossbreed series is brilliant from characters who make me feel to the suspenseful cases that keep me listening into the wee hours. Nevermore made me laugh, made me angry and had me plotting the demise of a vampire. It also made me smile, weep and swoon.
I devoured Scourged by Kevin Hearne, the ninth and final book in the Iron Druid Chronicles within the first 24 hours of its release. Once again, I listened to the brilliant narrations of Luke Daniels. Then, I listened again. As much as I am not ready to say goodbye to this series, Hearne delivered an intense, twisted and heartfelt finale that still left the door open for more stories. (Please let there be more stories.)
Please welcome Sophia Rose to Caffeinated as she takes us to Albany, New York in 1879 for a historical fiction wrapped in mystery. Come check out Winter Sisters by Robin Oliveira.
Hounded by Kevin Hearne first sat on my kindle after bloggers I adore and trust called it a must-read. Then when I read reviews about the narrations of Luke Daniels, I added the Audible edition. There it sat in my queue for over a year. I am kicking myself, seriously. Hounded is all that I love about urban fantasy with a narration that was utterly addictive.
Shine by Dannika Dark is the final audiobook in the riveting Mageri series. Dannika Dark has become a favorite here at Caffeinated and this year I devoured the Seven series, Mageri series and I am awaiting the next Crossbreed release. As I said this is the final Mageri book, but there are a few books set in their world: Risk, a companion novel, Closer, a novella and The Gift, a holiday novella which I will review tomorrow.
First, I must note that while this story contains its own mystery to be solved, the overall series arc, character buildup, and world demand that these books be read in order. So if you haven’t run, don’t walk and grab the City of the Lost (currently on sale for $2.99). The third novel, This Fallen Prey releases in February 2018.
