Heart of Steel -  Meljean Brook Wonderful read. I absolutely loved Archimedes.
Simply Irresistible - Jill Shalvis Fun and entertaining, I thoroughly enjoyed this. I definitely want to read more about the sisters.
Charming the Highlander (Highlander Trilogy) - Janet Chapman 3.5 stars

Nice, entertaining read.
Winterblaze - Kristen Callihan Poppy and Callihan have both made mistakes in their marriage, but are still deeply in love. The revelations they make to each other (and us the reader) reveal lies & vulnerabilities that need to be exposed before they can move forward in their relationship. Callihan's plotting is fantastic. There are points in this book where I'm not sure how the characters are ever going to get out of the situation they've landed in, yet they manage to pull through.

I'm definitely going to be reading the next book.
Scorched - Sharon Ashwood 4.5 stars

I really enjoyed Mac's story. We got to see a bit more of The Castle and its inmates. I'll definitely continue on to Ashe's book.
Undead to the World: The Bloodhound Files - DD Barant 4.5 stars

Magic on the Line - Devon Monk Another great read in the Allie Beckstrom series.
Untraceable - Laura Griffin I thought the mystery plot was pretty decent. The romance was a little blah; I couldn't really feel any connection between (or even with) the characters. I also had trouble with Alex's overall attitude toward Nathan. She has no hard proof, yet she is upset that Nathan has to follow police procedures in investigating the case?

I am slightly intrigued by the Delphi Center, so I may read the next book in this series.
Back from the Undead - D.D. Barant Another fun read in The Bloodhound Files. Jace is kept hopping as she moves from one dangerous incident to another, with barely a chance to think. Once she has time to put all the pieces together, everything falls into place and events make sense.

One tiny thing bothered me though, Jace has been in Thropirelem for a while now and she knows that there are lots of mystical things happening in the background. Why did she take her dreams at face value? Nightmares? ... Maybe. But she should have at least suspected something else might be going on and been on alert.
Rogue Rider (Lords of Deliverance #4; Demonica #9) - Larissa Ione Pestilence did a lot of horrible things in the first three books. While your mind may tell you Reseph had no control over Pestilence and should not be punished for it, emotionally it's difficult for his family and friends to handle. Even Reseph cannot help but blame himself for every evil action Pestilence took. Reseph's struggle was heart touching and Ione did a wonderful job bringing the situation to a satisfactory conclusion.

I'm definitely looking forward to Reaver's book.
Silence - Michelle Sagara, Michelle Sagara West I really loved this book. Admittedly, I'm a big fan of Sagara's Sun Sword Series and Chronicles of Elantra, but you still never know with a new series and new world. The characters were interesting, the ghost of Drew was heartbreaking and I'm interested to see where the next book takes Emma.
Lover Mine - J.R. Ward It was wonderful to finally read John Matthew's story. The book had a interesting weave of past and present, revealing how some ties are echoes/mirrors of others: John and Xhex, John and Tohr, Darius and Tohr ...

I'll definitely be continuing on to the next book
Cinder - Marissa Meyer 3.5 stars

Odd Interlude: A Special Odd Thomas Adventure - Dean Koontz 3.5 stars
Heart of Obsidian - Nalini Singh I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, so I'm going to stick to generalities. I had high expectations for this book and Singh did not disappoint. The main couple were each emotionally damaged and still managed to make a believable connection. Their stories, past connections and struggles were heart wrenching. Much of the romance was carried out with the couple isolated from others, so there was little chance to visit with past couples. I actually think this worked well with the plot and added to the overall tone. Singh also managed to advance the Pure Psy, Silence and Netmind chaos arcs. Overall a wonderful book and my only regret is that book 13 hasn't already been published.
Blood Lines - Eileen Wilks I've been wanting to continue this series for a while and decided to start with a reread of the first three books since I haven't touched them in over five years.

On the surface, Wilks' world is fairly standard to UF. Lupi (werewolves) are on the verge of being declared citizens, certain Lupi clans are fighting this change, a minority of humans can work magic and the majority of humans believe demons and magical "miracles" are exaggerated stories. However, the details she has created are interesting. Lupi society is interesting and I look forward to learning more. I'm also hoping to see more human magic users beyond Sensitives and Dizzies. It's the characters populating Wilks' universe that's the real draw for me.

Lily and Rule are an interesting couple. Forced to stay in close proximity due to the mate bond, they're learning to work within its confines. A traumatic childhood tragedy has led Lily into law enforcement. Knowing how important being able to do her job is to her, Rule willingly joins Lily in Washington D.C. during her investigation. Their stay in Dis (Hell) should have drawn them closer and it has in some ways, but they're also each hiding fears from the other.

Cynna and Cullen argue constantly, while fighting an underlying attraction. I'm not particularly invested in a relationship between the two, but I am willing to see where it goes in the future.

Lily's Grandmother is probably my favorite character and I can't wait to learn more about her history with Dragons.

I'm looking forward to continuing on to book 4.
