Reaper's Kiss by Allison West

Ruth West - Sunday, September 17, 2017

Title: Reaper's Kiss
Author: Allison West
Publisher: Blushing Books
Published: August 29, 2016
Genre:Paranormal, Romantic Erotica






Reaper's Kiss is a paranormal romance about Princess Ophelia, heir to the throne. Very quickly in the story she gets murdered and is given the choice to become a grim reaper. She takes it, seeing as how this is her only way for a second chance at life. She also happens to miss her sister, so she is given the chance to watch over her younger sister, the new heir to the throne.

There is a love story mixed in, (let me say Wynter is hot) but thankfully no love triangle. There are lots of characters but they were pretty easy to keep track of everyone and what they were: grim reapers, dark angels, demons. This paranormal fantasy was unlike anything I've ever read. At times it was like being in a fantasy world that was reminiscent of history. For example the Black Plague was pretty much a focus point of one of the reaps.

The author created strong characters and a fast paced story. Fantastical world building made this book really shine with a heated sexy romance. This story held my interest until the very end, with an unpredictable ending. I would love to read a sequel and although this book had a solid happy ending, I could see the potential for a second book. I will definitely be reading more of Allison West's books in the future. If you like steamy sex scenes and a story with a that is worth reading, not just PWP (plot what plot) then read this book!

Genre: Paranormal Romance




Great story that is the start of a series (Burke Witches Book One). It was engaging and the scenes seemed real. The romance scenes were a little light. Characters were interesting but the relationships needed more. There were missed opportunities for heat. I am looking forward to the next book.

Guardians: The Girl by Lola StVil

Ruth West - Wednesday, July 26, 2017

Title: Guardians: The Girl
Author: Lola StVil
Publisher: Amazon Digital Services
Published: January 9, 2012
Genre: Paranormal, Young Adult, Romance




An exciting and page-turning read that will keep you on the edge of your seat, anxious to discover what will happen next. Guardians: The Girl is packed early on with the full explanation of what/why/how of the history of what was happening, with a little bit of an information overload. A through content edit could have easily fixed the heavy dose of information that seemed to go on for pages. The story itself was plenty creative, imaginative, with a strong dose of world-building. There were a variety of characters that were charismatic and full of detail that made for a well-rounded story.
