Mmmm - he's just yummy!!!!

First Drop of Crimson - Jeaniene Frost

Ok I am going to spare myself some time and not copy the plot description from Amazon...
I have to say that Jeaniene Frost is one of my favorite authors and this was yet another example of her work. I loved it, not nearly as much as I love the Cat and Bones books but this one was awesome all the same. You get to see the dynamics between Denise and Spade as the story is from both their POV's and you get to see Cat and Bones and Ian as periphery characters.
And let me just say - IAN was the best and it was a happy little fact to discover that he has a Prince Albert!!!! I so very much hope that he and Vlad get their own books as well and I am all anticipation for August when Eternal Kiss of Darkness comes out for Mencheres (who also had a moment in this book).
I definately enjoyed this book and it was a super easy read to get through and a definate recommendation book....practically shoved it into my mothers hands to read.
My one and only complaint is the sodding cover - that is just horrible but then again it stands out so it has its purpose, definately not one to blend in on the shelf. :D

Books I didn't like and bummed I bought them

I am not even going to waste the time to upload the book covers for this as they were a waste of time to read.

1. Kiss of Midnight - Lara Adrian - RIP OFF
Gist of the book is this - there are Breed hunters who are vamps who are able to control their thirst for blood and hunt the rogue vamps who have tripped the line into addiction. I am not going to go on about the background of the story or the characters because in essentials this was a rip on the Black dagger brotherhood by J.R. Ward. Lucan = Wrath - The reluctant leader who fights his feelings for his "mate."
Gideon = Vishous - tech geek
Tegan = Zsadist - the troubled one...etc you get the idea. The plot lagged a bit and I honest to GOD could not help but see the correlation between this series and the BDB series...and as I am a HUGE fan of the BDB series I won't be reading the rest of the Midnight Breen series because why settle when you've had the best.

2. The Dark Prince - Christine Feehan - Boring
Gist is "vamps" but not true vampires residing in the Carpathian mountains - the prince of the Carpathian's finds his true mate and they have to work through random trials and murders to have a successful relationship....christ this was one of the most boring books I've read in a long time. I gave up half way through because it was literally putting me to sleep. I couldn't get into it, I didn't give a shit about the characters, and I am not bummed I haven't finished the book yet.

Ok, done...see I can blog about books I didn't like and not just the ones I like and would recommend.
