Review: Alien in the Family by Gini Koch

Product Description

Super-Being Exterminator Kitty Katt and the Alpha Centaurian she loves, Jeff Martini, should be finalizing their wedding plans. But that was before she discovers Jeff is in line to become Emperor back on his home world. Kitty knows she is everything a royal family wouldn't approve of, and is bracing herself for the worst. As it turns out, the royal family is just the beginning. Especially when extraterrestrial Amazonian terrorists are determined to start and end Kitty and Jeff's nuptial festivities with a bang.

This story kept me hanging on the edge of my seat as to what the heck could happen next. This one was another book by Ms Koch that was like getting on the biggest, wildest, roller coaster ride around. She doesn't stop with the action until the book stops lol. And that had to be the funniest, wildest, and craziest wedding I've ever read about. And the end with Martini knowing certain things before she does was hilarious.

I hope Ms. Koch keeps writing books for a long, long time because I will certainly be buying whatever she writes. This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I give this book a 5 stars.

This book was purchased for my personal pleasure and if you not read these books you need to run to the book store and purchase them all.


Review: Goddess With a Blade by Lauren Dane

Product Description

Rowan Summerwaite is no ordinary woman. Physical vessel to the Celtic Goddess Brigid and raised by the leader of the Vampire Nation, she's a supercharged hunter with the power to slay any vampire who violates the age-old treaty.

A recent string of murders has her at odds with Las Vegas's new Scion, the arrogant and powerful Clive Stewart. The killings have the mark of Vampire all over them, and Rowan warns Clive to keep his people in line—or she'll mete out her own brand of justice.

Though her dealings with Clive are adversarial to say the least, Rowan is intensely aware of her attraction to him. But she can't let it distract her from her duty—to find and battle the killer before more women die

I love Lauren's take on vampires. Its very fresh and different what with an agreement between the vamps and the hunters. Very different indeed. And with the addition of who raised Rowen and her family history it makes for one conflicted heroine which I liked. And Clive he's very arrogant and sure of himself which makes Rowan either want to kill him or kiss him. Sometimes its a toss up as to which way she'll go lol.

If you like Lauren's other books you'll like this one too. It was a very good story with great characters. I didn't think her characters were as fleshed out as some of her other books and that her secondary characters weren't as good in this book as some of her others like her Chance series but this was still a good book. I give it 3 1/2 stars

I received a copy of this one from Netgalley for review purposes only and no other consideration.
