QB's Quickies

"So, read any good books lately?"
"What did you think of...?"

Here's the Quickie answers to those questions. Click on the Links for more info.

Lisa Andel - McIntyre and Coventry - Special Investigations 1 (Liquid Silver)

Category: M&Ms - a bit lighter and/or not quite as satisfying as Peanut M&Ms, but still Oh-So-Enjoyable! (B,B-,C+,C)
Flame Height: 8" out of 9"

Picture a cross between Kim Harrison's Rachel and Keri Arthur's Riley romping through a fuckfest. A little more time spent explaining the world rules would have gone a long way toward making this one helluva read. Nonetheless, this erotic paranormal was engrossing and enjoyable and I hope Lisa writes more in this world. Extra points because it's set in my neck of the woods.
Piquant Opines: FAR, Elisa,

Joey W. Hill - The Vampire Queen's Servant

Category: Peanut M&Ms - mmmm...devour... sigh... then reach for the next one. My daily dose of Insanity-B-Gone. Most books fall in this category. (A-,B+,B)
Flame Height: 7" out of 9"

Listen, there is nothing I can say about this haunting erotic paranormal that hasn't been said better by numerous other people. When I read Gwen's review, I bought the book without any further research- I don't think I even read the back cover. My "Reader Instinct", combined with the fact that Gwen and I like many of the same books, made this a must-buy. The sequel, Mark of the Vampire Queen, is due out 02/05/2008.
More Piquant Opines: Jane, Shuzluva(Bam), RT,

With all those brothers in the story, I certainly HOPE Lisa is not done with this series! LOL! I wanna read MORE!

I'm not enjoying TVQS at all :(

QB said...

Uh-oh, Chantal, I think you are the first person I've heard of that hasn't loved it. I thought it was really good (not A+ but certainly above average), however I can also see that it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea. It IS very unusual, isn't it?
