Book of the Day … Night Game – A Ghostwalker series novel # 3 by Christine Feehan

I’m going to take a break from the series yet entertaining Eve Dallas.  I need something a bit more intense and msot definitely more sexy.

Night Game is the 3rd book in the Ghostwalker series.  This series is phenominal and I highly recommend every mature adult with a brain read it.  It’s fun.  It’s hot.  It’s sexy.  It’s fast paced and filled with an extremely military presence that just makes it go bump in the night.  A great book for a male or female 🙂

Praised for her “swift-moving and sexually-charged” plots and “fabulous paranormal twists” (Midwest Book Review), New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan now tracks the desperate steps of a wanted woman-betrayed, avenging, and dangerously irresistible.

Gator Fontenot of the Special Forces paranormal squad can’t refuse an urgent request to save the elusive Iris Johnson, a victim of the same horrific experiments that warped Gator. Now unleashed, she’s a flame-haired weapon of unimaginable destructive powers, a walking time bomb bent on revenge in the sultry bayous of New Orleans, and hunted by a shadowy assassin. It’s Gator’s job to reel Iris in. But can two people haunted by violent betrayals trust the passion that soon ignites between them? Or is one of them just playing another seductive and deadly night game?

REVIEW: Ceremony in Death – An In Death series novel # 5 by J.D. Robb

As much as I appreciate a good paranormal book, this book left me suffering.

Surrounded by witches, good and evil, Eve betrays a dear friend and puts the job first.

This book really hits home with Eve.  A suspect is the son of a serious psycho serial killer and rapist who worshipped satan.  The father raped and beat his own son.  Blinded by her emotions, Eve wishes and hopes that the man is innocent, even if all of the evidence points his way.

Ritual killings, orgies and the mysterious unknown witchcraft, Eve is the primary on this case and leads her aide and others with skeptical sarcasm.

He watched her work before, studied and admired the efficient, concentrated field she created around the dead.  Roarke wondered if she fully understood why she did it, or how she could, while examining a lifeless, violently dispatched body with such clear-cut objectivity, see through the pity that haunted her eyes.

He’d never asked her.  He doubted he ever would.

I honestly did not care much for this book.  It was a bit boring to me.

I recommend this book to mature adults.  Strong sexual content.  Strong and intriguing violence.  Sex and dismemberment.  Although others may find this book extremely entertaining, I am recommending this book only to those who are reading the In Death series.  I mean .. why bother?

Line of the book:

“…my narcissism is balanced by a generous heart.”

~Happy reading!

REVIEW: Rapture – An In Death series novel # 4 by J.D. Robb

I really loved this book!  Knocked it out in little less than a day .. and have the next book queued up and ready to go once this review is complete.  Yay me!

Hmm.  How to write one of my reviews and not spoil this book. *thinks*

Roarke and Eve’s honeymoon is cut short by the “self-termination” of one of Roarke’s employees.  Mavis catches a break in show business.  Odd suicides nudge at Eve, leaving her the only one to believe that there is indeed a connection.

Roarke adores Mavis.  She is Eve’s best friend, a loved one to cherish.  Hosting parties, exploring investment possibilities, Roarke really will keep you smiling in this book.

Mood altering music and virtual games.  Roarke and Eve find themselves in a more than usual explosive sexual climax.  I couldn’t help but laugh at their attempted struggle to behave in public.

They tore at clothes, fighting to find each other in the narrow confines of the car.  She bit his shoulder, yanked his trousers open.  He was cursing, she was laughing, when he dragged her out of the car.  They fell on the grass in a tangle of limbs and twisted clothing.

This is by far my favorite book of this series so far.  Keep in mind, this is the fourth book 🙂  This is my first time through the In Death series.  SO, time will tell!

Eve is torn between two doctors; a psychologist and a physiologist.  Needing answers and results to report to her Commander, Eve steps on sensitive toes to get what she wants.

“Women are so much more courageous and more vicious than men, all in all.  Don’t you agree?”

“No.  I think courage and viciousness have no gender.”

I recommend this book to .. well .. all mature adults.  Moderate to semi extreme sexual content (I really should start using a 1-10 system heh).  The violence is mild, excluding the descriptive murder scenes and suicide.  Ok, perhaps all in all I should say “moderate” but .. I won’t 😉

Line of the book:

“….You just pounded yourself into me with all the finesse of a sweaty celibate breaking fast with a rented sex droid.”
