That's what runs through Desiree "Dez" MacDermot's mind the minute she hooks up again with her childhood buddy, Mace Llewellyn.  Mace likes making Dez crazy. In fact, he likes her any way he can get her―in bed, on the desk, here, now, again. Together, they'd always been trouble, but Dez has no idea just how good trouble can feel...


Brendon Shaw has seen better days. He's been beaten, had a gun to the back of his head, and had to be rescued by a Pack of shape-shifting wolves. He didn't think he'd survive the night, much less find the woman of his dreams. And he never thought the woman of his dreams would have a Tennessee accent and wear cowboy boots. 

Ronnie Lee Reed is ready to change her life, and New York City is the place where any girl―even one who runs with a Pack―can redefine herself. First order of business: find a mate, settle down, and stop using men for sex. Even big, gorgeous, lion-shifting, oh-my-what-big-um-paws-you-have men. Then again...

My thoughts:
I am sorry but why is everyone loving this. Omg so dull!!!!! I tried my best, I really did! I was told it was funny 



Yeah that would be a negative on funny. I read up to 100, the rest of the 100 pages of the first story is a blur. The other story I skimmed.

I will not be reading more. A big fail.

Pride #1
Paranormal romance
Own

Once, Sarah Bingham’s biggest challenge was making her students pay attention in class. Now, after rescuing a wounded stranger, she’s landed in the middle of a battle between corrupt vampires and powerful immortals who also need blood to survive. Roland Warbrook is the most compelling man Sarah has ever laid hands on. But his desire for her is mingled with a hunger he can barely control…

In his nine centuries of immortal existence, no woman has tempted Roland as much as Sarah. But asking her to love him is impossible—when it means forfeiting the world she’s always known, and the life he would do anything to protect

My thoughts:
*sleeping*
I am sorry, what?
*sleeping*
Gods! I am PNRed out! I can't handle this anymore! Big ass guy meets tiny female. Insta love/lust, blah blah blah
*sleeping*
It was just so dull! I got to page 100 and skimmed the rest. No world building. just these two boring people talking.

Immortal Guardians #1
Paranormal romance
Own

In this dazzling, sensual novel, Dianne Duvall beckons readers into a world of vampires, immortals, and humans with extraordinary gifts…where passion can last forever, if you’re willing to pay the price…

Defense attorney Kim Fraser has to venture into the dark and dangerous Shiftertown to get answers for a client accused of murder, but the secrets she learns from the enticing lips of Liam Morrissey might just get her killed if the shifter doesn't claim her for his mate.

My thoughts:
Another book that showed me that I am PNRed out. I am just all, sigh, why even bother?

It was ok at first, I did try my best, but it was a bit over 100 pages where it all fell part for me. I just could not be bothered about the heroine, or the hero who went all mine. And all the rest. Still I saw that it could have been good for me a few years ago. But now I might be over most pnr books. They do not work.

Anyway, a story about a woman who meets a sexy shifter, has hot sex, saves a life and lives happily ever after. Boring for me.

  1. They all sound kind of same old - same old. If you've read one you've read them all lol

  2. I love me some paranormal books, but I've started to avoid the romance-y ones for this exact reason. I normally get about 50% of the way through and just go ... "so what?" Sorry to hear you've been disappointed with your books lately :/

    1. That is why I prefer UF, they are different, instead of alphas going all mine and women blah blah. See, totally tired of them

  3. I listen to Shelley Laurenston books, so I don't know if the narrator helps the story out or not, but I enjoy them. I read book one of Dianne Duvall's, but never continued with the series. I don't know why. I've never tried Jennifer Ashley, though she has been on my radar for some time.

    Great job on your workouts. :-)

    1. I like her more UF series, it's a pnr uf mix so that is why it works for me.

      Thanks ! Hopefully I will manage to keep it up

  7. PNR is like crack for me, once I get addicted, I can't stop until I'm all burned out after a while, they all start seeming so similar. Even the covers, LOOK AT THEM! Must have been a really boring time for you.

  10. Aw bummer you hated them so much. I love Laurenston and Ashley. Think they're fab. Maybe PNR is just not your thing for now?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Darkness is a pretty cover but sorry to hear the disappointment

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yep, I'm PNR'd out too. Same old - same old. Maybe someday I can get back into them.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh no I'm sad you didn't like the Ashley one because as I said I have it. Well I think I'll have to try to see how it is.

  15. Great job on the exercise!!

    Yeah, add me to the PNR burnout group. I used to love this sub-genre but I hardly read it anymore. So much repetitiveness!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup, same old thing, over and over again. Too bad I still have quite a few books unread in the genre

      Delete
  16. I used to read exclusively PNR but lately I've been getting into suspense/thrillers! I think the burnout factor happens when you only read one genre for awhile!
    LOL @ hot dude meets tiny female then ensuing hot sex!
    Hope you're doing well! Missed your posts!

    1. Missed you :)

      And i had not even read any pnr, but when I tried again I was all, NO. Ugh, can't do this

  17. Great week for you!! I was disappointed with The Mane Event too, but Pack Challenge was wicked hilarious and sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Haha I love that GIF! :-) Too bad it didn't work for you. And wow you are doing a lot of walking and exercising! Zumba is so fun, I should really start doing that again.
