Book reviews

The Girl With All The Gifts by M. R. CareyNight Broken by Patricia Briggs (Mercy Thompson, Book 8) - Australian editionShamed In The Sands Release date: 02/2014 Imprint: Mills & Boon Sexy by Sharon Kendrick

Night Broken by Patricia Briggs (Kat) — The big villain isn’t nearly as fascinating as Mercy’s relationships with Adam and the pack, which is perfect because those relationships are what keeps me hooked on this series.

Shamed In The Sands by Sharon Kendrick (Jodi) — I wanted something different from a desert romance. What I got was the most stereotypical virgin heroine/playboy hero romance of all time.

The Girl With All The Gifts by MR Carey (guest review by Nyssa) — Unexpected and deeply engaging, this book is a superbly written original masterpiece that will inspire.

Kat reviewed the following books for the Booktopia Romance Buzz:

  • Floored by Ainslie Paton (book of the month)
  • Her Kind Of Trouble by Sarah Mayberry
  • The Winter Bride by Anne Gracie
  • Between the Devil and Ian Eversea by Julie Anne Long
  • The Naughty Girls’ Book Club by Sophie Hart
