Since my last blog Christmas has come and gone, and the New Year is approaching (in a little over 24 hours and it will be 2010!) So Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
In my last entry I was explaining how I get myself into reading multiple books all the time ( for my followers, remember I had 3 books on the go?) I am happy to say I have completed 2 of the 3.
"The Wall" was the account of a woman's dealings with the haunting of her house. Really it wasn't the best true haunting book I have ever read..it seemed almost empty. There was a ton of words, but no emotion, no real suffering by this individual. Don't get me wrong I'm sure it was hard dealing with what she went through, but the book seemed so "matter of fact" . What made me REALLY dislike the book was the obvious lack of editing! Since I have been half ass critiquing Dawn's book, I have become a "grammer nazi". I can no longer read a book without picking up spelling errors, grammatical errors etc. But I toughed through it, and finished the book. The Wall was book number 3.
Book number 4 of the year was "Jacob" by Jacquelyn Frank.
All I have to say about this book is "Wow!" This woman has a knack for using words to get the "hot" parts of her book to come out! I had to have a couple cold showers while reading this book!
"Jacob" is the first in "The Nightwalker" series, by Ms Frank. The book centres around Jacob, a demon, who is stuck with keeping other demons from having intercourse with humans, he is "The Enforcer". Due to the fact that when a demon has sex, a human can get "hurt" and I'm not talking a bit uncomfortable, I'm talking ripped to little pieces. Demons are viscious lovers, and only demons of the opposite sex can handle it.
Now Jacob runs across Isabella (ok now before you start screaming, "Twilight" and "Jacob" came out in the same year, so it's just a coinky dink these names are used), and is immediately drawn to her, he can't stay away from her, will do anything to be with her, which is against the rules.
Now for someone who never really read paranormal romance books,I was strictly a horror person, I can honestly say this was a great book. It had romance, humor, and some violence. Isabella is a great "leading lady" also, she is strong, both physically and mentally, and very stubborn. She made me choke up, smile, and laugh out loud.
The book reminds me of JR Wards "Black Dagger Brotherhood" books, the writing is similar, and the books are pretty much the same idea. Jacob is about Jacobs fight for love, the next book in the series is Gideon. JR Ward has "Dark Lover" which is about her character Wrath, and the next book is mainly about a new character Rhage.
Now I love JR Wards books...so I'm sure I'll be happy with these! Now on to book number 5, Gideon!
