REVIEW: Full Moon Rising – A Riley Jenson Guardian series novel # 1 by Keri Arthur

Incredibly sexy!  Action packed suspense!  Full Moon Rising is a crossbreeding of J.D Robb meets Anita Blake meets Mercy Thompson!  This book is positively FABULOUS and I’m super excited about reading the book that is *glances to my right* waiting ever so impatiently for my sweetest attention ❤

This is a new author and (duh) new series for me.  All of the characters are fresh in my brain … I am being seduced by them as we speak and anxiously await the full sacrificial wave of dreams that will hopefully! … undoubtedly! … wake me panting o.O


Full Moon Rising is the first book in the Riley Jenson Guardian series; therefore I will be giving you details about what I have come to know thus far… Even though I have noticed that at times I speak my mind .. I am proven “wrong” .. Hey it happens!

Not often.

But it does!

Riley Jenson, a half-breed of werewolf and vampire, the twin to the badass Guardian, Rhoan … and an erotic dancer of the moon’s pull … She is fun and awesome.  I hate comparing .. But I really like this book and I’m going to try and put her into perspective for possible addicts!  It’s like Anita on valium .. but Mercy on X and revenge.  Where does that leave us?  With a woman who is sexually confident, betrayed by bastards in her life and does what is needed to .. well the means justify the end, right?

She’s excruciatingly lonely in a crowded room, a sad character who does not make friends easily … this leaves her undying loyalty to a fault and somewhat blinds her to the creepy crawly asswipes lurking in the shadows with knives in their hands!

There are so many wonderful characters .. Hmm.  I’m not sure how to “go there” without “going there” …spoilers suck!

Skipping characters!

This book takes place in the future without the J.D. Robb vroom vrooming.  There are ancient vampires, although rare.  There are crossbreds, although highly improbable.  There is a paranormal section of the law that … well the seek out and handle what needs handling without bothering to let the “real” world know about the bloodshed.

Rhoan is kidnapped!  A friend goes missing … A vampire warned and warning Riley to keep her distance, and a handful of potential hot and dripping sexy lovers that quite honestly .. well I hope I dream about the club dance scene tonight!

Laurell K. Hamilton is one of my favorite authors.  Keri Arthur has excellent potential to wiggle herself onto a higher shelf (the one my toddler should never be able to reach .. cross your fingers!) where she will remain safe and sound.  I have high expectations and I sincerely .. I truly hope that Kissing Sin, the second book in this series, keeps me smiling! (I’m 26 pages in and I’m already sick of this review… as it is taking time away from reading!)

This book takes off with a BANG .. You do not even have to read 5 pages before being seduced into Riley’s world .. She’s brilliant and I’m looking forward to more.

I recommend this book to mature adults only .. awesome violence scenes although not entirely too eyeball oozing worthy.  Fantastic sexual content .. frequent .. descriptive .. but brief enough to allow the actual story to stay at the front row.

~happy reading!

REVIEW: Vengeance in Death – An In Death series novel # 6 by J.D. Robb

A religious nutjob sociopathic serial killer targets Even and Roarke (Shocker!).  Extremely bloody mutilated bodies are found and Summerset is tied to more than one murder.

Hating the snobbish, uptight asswad, Eve still finds herself using every resource to prove that he should not be her prime suspect.  If only the dude would follow her advice and stay close to home.

Avenging the rape, mutilation, beating and death of Summerset daughter, Roarke is forced to make a list of those who provided him information on her torturers.  One by one, the killer is making his way through the list and brutalized them in the most delicious ways.

He’d been stripped naked, his hand and both his feet amputated.  The one eye he left stared in blind horror at the mirrored reflection of his own mutilated form.  He’d been disemboweled.

Peabody and Eve are hilarious.  They don’t come close to Stephanie and Lula, but they’re funny!

“Peabody’s a pussycat.  Aren’t you, Peabody?”

“Tame as a tabby, Lieutenant.”

With that said, this book left me wanting.

I was not entirely entertained.  I need something juicy to get my pulse pumping.  Maybe I picked up the wrong book at the wrong time.  *glances at bookshelves*


I recommend this book to mature adults only.  There is very little sexual content and it is non-descriptive.  The violence and murder scenes are fantastic!  Mature eyes only!

~Happy reading!


Book of the day … Vengeance in Death – An In Death series novel # 6 by J.D. Robb

I so need a break from the paranormal books I have been reading.  They are sucking what little brain cells I have into oblivion while giggling along the way.  *blink*

I could not decide between In Death or Stephanie Plum.  I’m not in a ha ha funny mood at the moment, so bloody gore mystery will suffice!

My momma is visiting me this week!  My birthday is the 18th, and school begins the 17th.  That’s so unfair.  So she has surprised me with a visit; too cool!  Suffice it so say, I will not finish reading this book this week 🙂  I doubt you will receive any posts at all, unless something is drumming against my mind, it will all have to wait until she leaves 🙂  Until then!

On to better and cooler things!  The In Death series by J.D. Robb.  I have yet to read this series in its entirety.  Vengeance in Death will be a first read for me, as well as those that follow.

Summary of Vengeance in Death:

He is an expert with the latest technology…a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit–always solved moments too late to save his victims’ lives. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past–a secret shared by none other than Eve’s new husband, Roarke.
