- After Dark

Pretty decent premise but seemed to rely more on telling than showing. A bit too much reliance on passive voice, and some of the wording indicates the protagonist is in human form rather than wolf at times. Has potential.

I have to say that this book just didn't work for me. I feel that this was mostly an issue with it not being my type of book rather than many issues with the work itself. If you have issues with your hero or heroine having sex with others, this probably won't work for you either. I should have expected it--I mean, incubus/succubus , hello, but hope springs eternal. That's just an iron clad rule of romance for me. The book was well formatted. There were some editing issues that pulled me out of the story, and it does seem that the author has a little way to go to get into the show rather than tell range of writing, but I'm sure the story would totally work for the right kind of audience. That just wasn't me. I will say I really appreciated the jerk in the book getting his comeuppance in the end (I love that in a story). I shall have to check out her other non-incubus stories. They'd probably be a better fit for me.
- Hush Money (Talent Chronicles)
on Aug. 05, 2010
You remember the early seasons of Smallville, back when Clark was mooning over Lana, they were all still in high school, and every week was an episode about stopping some isolated problem and the important thing was keeping his secret? If you’re like me and really miss those days, Hush Money is absolutely for you. In a market that’s positively flooded with stories about teen vampires or fairies, Bischoff provides a refreshing and absolutely believable world about teenagers with superpowers. Chloe Sullivan would have plenty of fodder for her Wall of Weird—in the best possible way!
In this debut novel, heroine Joss must come to question the deeply ingrained secret keeping behavior she’s always lived by in order to do the right thing and help a friend who’s being blackmailed by the class bully. Joss was so three-dimensional, I swear she had a locker next to mine in high school. She shared my disgust of the pink and girly, and she has this great crush on borderline bad-boy Dylan (who is exactly the right mix of rebellious and nice guy). I can’t wait to see what Joss and her friends get up to in the next installment!
An absolute must read from this up and comer in the YA genre.

As a general rule, I don't like historicals. I mean, I love Jane Austen, but other than my annual re-reading of Pride and Prejudice, I don't seek them out. I admit to a prejudice against them from having gotten ahold of a few too many with ninnies for heroines. So I was REALLY pleasantly surprised when I read this book. The heroine is spunky and witty, the hero honorable with just the right amount of rough around the edges. And FUNNY, OMG, I laughed so much during this story! Love, love, love the ghost. The whole situation kept me in stitches. My only gripe was that the ending felt a wee bit rushed. I'd have preferred to see those last few scenes stretched out a bit longer just so I could enjoy it more. But all in all, a delightful read and a good choice for your To Read shelf.

I really enjoyed the world Benefiel set up in this short novella. The heroine was relatable, the hero yummy, and the potential for future installments great. Looking forward to Rebellion!

I felt like this was a step up on the action front in this series. It did not end where I would have ended it, but hey, author's choice. I really enjoyed Cara and Abel, and I felt like this was a really good continuation of Day of Sacrifice. Really looking forward to the third installment.

An intriguing debut from Gerlach that will keep you guessing until the final page. I look forward to seeing more from her!

In this much anticipated sequel to Bischoff's Hush Money we finally get exactly what we've been waiting for--MOAR JOSS AND DYLAN! The whole he likes me, he likes me not finally comes to fruition against a backdrop of more evil plotting by Marco, which makes him a villain you more than love to hate--you want to destroy. If you thought he was awful in Hush Money, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Bischoff unwaveringly ups the stakes for all the Talents in Fairview who all want to mobilize--and want Joss to lead them. As I read this book I laughed, I cried, and I changed my mind about fifty times about what kind of Talent *I* want because she kept introducing new cool ones. This is a must read for fans of superhero romance.
