Heart of Obsidian by Nalini Singh

5 Stars
I loved this one!!!  Kaleb is awesome.  Sahara made him a better person... er Psy. 
Ugh, I wish I could remember one of the quotes I loved but here's some:
So we literally made the earth move? A slight pause, before Kaleb said, I suggest we don’t engage in sex in populated areas.
“You’ll have to be my conscience.” He knew his flaws, and he knew the parts of him that were irrevocably broken. “Mine isn’t going to grow back.” 
You definitely need to read this one.  This, besides Kiss of Snow and Caressed by Ice, is my favorite in this series! 

Tangle of Need by Nalini Singh

4 Stars
I really like this series, but this book was kinda slow.  Its more about the lull after the big fight.  Alliances are forming, and we get to see a little more from some of the other characters. 
Riaz and Adria were a mediocre couple.  I was actually hoping that some type of mating bond would form between them, but no. 

Tiger Magic by Jennifer Ashley

4 Stars
I love all of Jennifer Ashley's stuff, and this is no exception.  A definite Must Read.  I love the whole "Mine" vibe when it comes to mates. 
Not much to say about this one, except if you read the others in this series, you have to read this one too!

Obsession by Jennifer Armentrout

Holy broody hot alpha alert! Oh thank you Armentrout for writing this! I loved the Lux series, and now I love this one too. Hunter is an ass and makes no apologies about it. Serena doesn't let him get away with anything. You go girl! She knew exactly how to handle this alpha.
I loved hearing about the Arum side of things. It definitely makes us see that things aren't always black and white; the Lux aren't all good, and the Arum aren't all bad.
I can't wait to read more!

Jet by Jay Crownover

4 Stars!  My absolute favorite type of main character!  Bad boy?  yes!  Alpha male?  oh yes.  Rockstar? check!  Tattooed? of course!  Pierced?  oh yeah baby... and all over too!  *insert dreamy sigh here*
Oh Jet, I absolutely loved you!  He was such a great guy, and he knew what he wanted, so he went after it.  ooh and those skin tight pants left little to the imagination.  
Now Ayden... ugh she was the "I have to leave him alone to protect him" type of character.  She runs away all the damn time!  grr! But she was sassy, and I liked that about her.
They did get their HEA, and I can't wait to see what's in store for Rome and Cora!

It Had to be You by Jill Shalvis

4 Stars!  I love this series!  It has such a feel good vibe.  This one was a sweet love story with a guy trying to escape and a girl that felt like everyone was against her.
Ali was so sweet and I loved that she was a little feisty.  And Luke, mmm mmm mmm.  He was the ultimate fixer.  He had to help Ali even though all he thought he wanted was peace and quiet, but he really just needed Ali.
So if you've liked the other books in this series, you won't be disappointed by this one!

Phoenix Rockstar by Bec Botefuhr

I gave this book 1 star.  I probably should have only given it .5, but I was feeling generous.  This book had a great concept, but the editing was so horrible I kept thinking to myself "why the hell am I reading this?!"  There were too many grammatical errors to count, and plenty of names that weren't capitalized, and just some stupid scenes in the book.  For example, the whole role playing of the Dirty Dancing scene just felt out of place.  Ugh, just awful! And it had a cliffhanger!  NO!  I will not be reading the second book.  I will not read anything by this author again, unless I am positive that there has been some kind of significant change in the writing style. 

Zane by Nicole Edwards

I gave this book 4 stars.  I liked it better than Kaleb.  V was pissing me off because she was trying to protect Zane by keeping him at a distance.  That is my least favorite quality in a character.
Zane was more dominating than Kaleb.  He had the Dom voice going on.  But there wasn't really any BDSM in this book.  There were some mfm and mmf scenes.  Smut level in this one was a little above medium. 
I loved how Zane was willing to try anything at least once.  He was fearless, and he loved V like crazy. 
Great story!  I can't wait to see what happens with Travis!

Kaleb by Nicole Edwards

I gave this book 3 stars.  I don't have too much to say about it.
I never really connected with Zoey.  She was said to be a very strong woman, but all I got out of the book was that she was weak.  Where was this strong woman that they kept mentioning in the book? 
Other than that, the book was pretty good.  The smut level was medium, because it was all about the sex and not about the foreplay.  They just jumped right in without warming up.  There were a few threesome (mfm) scenes.
I was thinking that there was going to be some BDSM in here, but other than Kaleb being an alpha male, there was none. 
So, if you like a smutty book with some mfm action and a happy ending, this is for you.
