Quickies R Us


I've been doing a lot of re-reads lately. So, I decided to whip up some quickie reviews. Get ready for one-sentence reviews.

Ready, set, go!


Dark Melody by Christine Feehan: A sensitive, beta-ish Carpathian vampire (I know, I know...weird, huh?) falls in love with a pregnant musical psychic with a heart condition, and then they get chased by bad guys, and then he turns her into a blood-sucking lifemate, and then they live happily ever after. Grade: A

(I never said they weren't going to be run-on sentences).

Dark Legend by Christine Feehan: A totally hot and masterful Carpathian vampire claims his mate, who happens to be a bad-ass doctor, and then they adopt an abused young woman, and then they get chased by bad guys and some vamps, and then they have steamy hot sex underground, and then they live happily ever after. Grade: A

Dark Guardian by Christine Feehan: A tiny human cop who is being stalked by a deranged psycho killer falls in love with a Carpathian vampire, and then they get chased by bad guys, and some bad vampires, and finally the psycho killer, and then Lucian turns Jax into a blood-sucking lifemate, and then they kill all the bad guys, and then they live happily ever after. Grade: A

Ready by Lucy Monroe: A sexy ex-ranger develops a "sexual obsession" (aka, falls madly in love but he's too stupid to realize it until the bitter end of the book) with a writer who has a stalker, and then they get chased by a bad guy, and then they catch the bad guy, and then he knocks her up and they live happily ever after. Grade: A

Willing by Lucy Monroe: A super-intense Native American ex-ranger develops a "sexual obsession" (you know, that whole falling-madly-in-love-but-he-is-totally-clueless-until-the-end-of-the-book-thing) for the daughter of his business partner, and then some bad guys try to blow everyone up, and then the good guys find the bad guys, and there's a totally hot losing-her-virginity-scene (swoony!) and then they live happily ever after. Grade: A

And Able by Lucy Monroe: An ex-ranger with a southern accent gets a "sexual obsession" (blah blah blah...you know the scoop) for a computer geeky gal with crazy curly red hair, and then some bad guys try to kill her, and then Claire and Brett fly a kite, and then they get the bad guy, and then he knocks her up and they live happily ever after. Grade: A

Where the Heart Leads by Stephanie Laurens (part of the Penelope Project!): An independent virgin heroine with glasses (named Penelope) decides to investigate the disappearance of some young boys, and enlists the aid of Barnaby Adair, and finally figures out that sex might be fun, and so she has a naughty love affair while uncovering a thievery ring, and then they get chased by bad guys, and then they catch the bad guys, and then Penelope and Barnaby dance a waltz at their wedding and live happily ever after. Grade: A

Hoping to find a blood-sucking lifemate with a sexual obsession and a happily ever after,
Penelope

Love the reviews...Don't you love re-reading your favorite books?

Penelope said...

Hi Anny! Yes, I do. I can whip off 3-5 books in a day w/ re-reads. I especially love re-reading all the Feehan Dark books. Comfort food for my (immortal) soul! :^)

ROTFLMAO! I better go find a totally sex-obsessed hot Ranger/Vampire, get chased by bad guys, have underground sex and then get knocked up so I can live happily ever after!
Cuz my life is a yawn-fest compared to this!

Julia....If you were in a celebrity death match with a sexually-obsessed Carpathian vampire I would totally put my money on you. You are tough, girlfriend. Tough!

Dang woman, you rate like my blog partner Cait! She never met a book she didn't give an A to. Me, I'm a cranky snot, I like to mix it up with a B or C here and there, just to keep life interesting. That whole "box of chocolates thing."

I can't remember the title (Dark Slayer?), it was a later one, but I loved it. It was about a Carpathian woman who got ripped into pieces by wolves and gradually pulled all the pieces of herself back together again over the centuries. That was an A book for me, just for the weirdness factor.

Hi Barbara! These books are some of my favorite "re-reads".....I have probably read all of them at least 20 times. So, of course they all have an "A" rating. They're my DIK books!

I do give out Bs and Cs on occasion. And rarely, failing grades. But it's much more fun talking about books I love than books I hate.

I loved Dark Slayer, too. There have been maybe 2 or 3 of the Dark books I didn't like. And I haven't read the latest one because I heard it had excessive violence, which I hate. So I'm avoiding that one.

Dang it!

Oh my goodness, love the reviews. Laughing so much I can't stop coughing (am at home sick). Thanks for the laugh. :D

Hi little alys....Feel better! Glad to cheer you up a bit.
