What I thought about Dawn of Eve

Dawn of Eve is the final installment in the Trilogy of Eve series by Pam Godwin. Dawn is ready to take on whatever she has to in order to save the world, and she’s committed to her mother’s legacy. She’s all grown up and ready to kick some butt. In the process of saving some women, she ends up captured herself, and that’s not a good thing.

Along comes Salem. He’s different from others and that fuels Dawn’s intense attraction to him. He could be her downfall in many different ways. I love how Pam Godwin keeps the reader guessing for most of this book. Will Dawn save the world? You’ll have to read to find out!
Dawn of Eve is not a standalone. The books in this series should be read in order.

If you’re in the mood for a dystopian paranormal erotic romance, this might just be what you are looking for. It’s not your usual paranormal romance, and that is what makes it interesting! Pam Godwin does what I think she is best at – crafting characters that are complex, emotional and not exactly what they might seem to be.

Release Day Review:Finding Kyle by Sawyer Bennett

Title: Finding Kyle

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense

 



Blurb:

When you’ve lived your life as a criminal… 
When you’ve done unspeakable things … 
When your soul has become dark and stained… 

The path to redemption begins where you least expect it. 

Kyle Sommerville is in hiding and doesn’t want to be found by anyone. Certainly not by his quirky, free-spirited neighbor who’s managed to push her way past the walls he’s built around him. But Jane Cresson’s indomitable will and insatiable curiosity about her reclusive neighbor makes it impossible for Kyle to stay immersed in his dark world. 

Little by little, she claws through his shell. 
Day by day, she gets him to smile a little more. 
Night by night, they both find pleasure they never knew existed. 

When Kyle’s terrible past is exposed, Jane begins to think she’s in over her head. Can her love for this broken man finally clear his path to redemption, or will Kyle’s darkness extinguish every bit of hope she’s put into him?

What I thought about Finding Kyle


ATF agent Kyle Sommerville is in hiding after being undercover to bust a huge crime ring.  He's got to stay out of sight until the trial begins, and there's always the danger that someone will be sent to take him out so he can't testify. He's perfectly happy living a quiet, solitary life until his neighbor Jane decides to take things into her hands.

Not knowing Kyle's circumstances, Jane tries to get to know Kyle. She's quite devoted to her work of getting Kyle to relax a bit and for them to get to know each other. Kyle does a good job of trying to resist her, but after everything he's gone through, he isn't exactly immune to Jane's many charms. I really liked this part of the book, where Jane gradually breaks down Kyle's resistance.

Eventually Kyle and Jane connect, but it isn't long afterward that Kyle receives word he could be in danger and should relocate. While he knows what he has to do, he's not happy about hurting Jane. But when an intruder busts everything wide open, Jane isn't quite ready to let go of everything Kyle withheld from her.

There wasn't a huge amount of drama in Finding Kyle, so if you are looking for a sweet little love story with some quickly resolved drama, this story might appeal to you.  I did like the relationship between Jane and Kyle very much in this book.

Finding Kyle is a quick read. There are some very satisfying steamy scenes between Kyle and Jane that spice up the story a bit I should mention that Kyle Sommerville appears in Wicked Bond, if you are interested in reading more about his days in the ATF.  I did like how these books were connected, although I will admit I had to go back and read some pages of Wicked Bond to get my bearings.  No worries though, because this book works well as a standalone, too.

This is my honest review. An ARC was provided.

What I thought about On Broken Wings

A year after Dani loses her husband in a crash, she's still grieving. She's just going through the motions of life, not sure what she's going to do now.  When she runs into Easy, her husband's best friend and squadron teammate, he ends up helping her get her house ready for sale.  Only thing is that Easy is keeping a secret.  He's been in love with Dani since the first moment he saw her. He's kept his feelings to himself for all these years, but with Dani available, it's not quite so easy to hide anymore.

Easy has some legitimate reasons to take it slow, and this story worked for me because I believed in the depth of his feelings for Dani. He torn between respect for his best friend, even in death.  Dani is still dealing with her grief, and she tends to beat herself up for having realizing she has feelings for Easy.  When physical attraction gets the best of them, it doesn't exactly lead to everything working out--at least not at first.

I liked how this story dealt with grief and friendship and marriage.  It was more complicated that it might look at first glance and I appreciated that about this story.  There isn't a lot of conflict-- it's really a tale about two people finding their way to each other in their own time and manner. 

This is my first read from this author.  This book worked very well as a standalone for me, and it had me interested in reading the other books in the series.  A lot about this story was predictable, but the power of love was really the charm in On Broken Wings.

This is my honest review. ARC provided for review.
