About Nicole

Attorney by day, Publicist for Barclay Publicity and reviewer/LE (assistant) editor by night. I’m a huge book nerd and love to read. I have 2 dogs, both Labrador retriever mixed breeds, who are very rotten and think they run the house. Let’s not lie, they totally do, I just can’t them know it ha ha! My usual genre is romance or urban fantasy. I love all things having to do with paranormal, with the occasional good contemp/BDSM/erotica thrown in to spice it all up.

Diablo Lake: Moonstruck by Lauren Dane

29 August 2017 Nicole 0

It’s no secret that I adore anything Lauren Dane writes and Diablo Lake: Moonstruck was no exception.  As soon as I saw it on NetGalley (and that it is a first in a new series!), I simply had to have it. I also may have tagged a certain Carina editor begging […]

Baby’s Got Bite by Candace Havens

20 August 2015 Nicole 0

It’s been a long while since I’ve read a Candace Havens novel, but I remembered I loved her writing and that she wrote cute stories. Baby’s Got Bite was no exception. Some consequences bite . . . big time. Bennett Langdon has a firm no-relationships policy. Still, it doesn’t stop her […]

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

30 July 2015 Nicole 0

When I saw Rachel Caine had a new book…and series…out, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to read it. I loved the Morganville Vampires series and the premise of Ink and Bone and the whole Great Library series really piqued my interest.  Sadly, I couldn’t finish it which makes me sad. […]

The Veil by Chloe Neill

23 July 2015 Nicole 0

And it’s official (although I’ve pretty much known for a while…but hey, denial was a good state LOL), Chloe Neill is SOOO on my “auto-buy, I don’t care what book it is” list.  When I saw she was coming out with a new series, Devil’s Isle, I couldn’t wait to get […]

Revenant by Larissa Ione

9 July 2015 Nicole 0

No no no NO…I’m in denial. This CANNOT be the end of the Demonica series. *pouts*. This is one of my fave PNR series, as is the spin-off, Lords of Deliverance, and you bet I took my time savoring Revenant by Larissa Ione. HELL HATH NO FURY . . . For five […]

NPeeler-JinnandJuice

Jinn and Juice by Nicole Peeler

21 May 2015 Nicole 0

When I got the chance to get a review copy (via Netgalley) for Jinn and Juice by Nicole Peeler, I was beyond thrilled. I loved Peeler’s Jane True series. Peeler’s writing is awesome because of the way she makes you connect with her characters (snark, wit and a loveable charm).  However, […]

DRowland_VengeanceoftheDemon

Vengeance of the Demon by Diana Rowland

9 April 2015 Nicole 1

And cue the fan girl squealing…I friggin LOVE the Kara Gillian series by Diana Rowland, so when I saw Vengeance of the Demon up on Netgalley, I did a mental happy dance. I devoured Vengeance of the Demon in a few short hours and as always, Rowland leaves me begging for more. Demon […]

JWells_CursedMoon

Cursed Moon by Jaye Wells

2 April 2015 Nicole 0

I’m in a sort-of reading funk. Likely due to the fact that so far, 2015 has been the year of cursed technology. First the new laptop (only 2 months old) decided to die (it’s a motherboard or hard drive issue…thank the tech gods for warranties!), my old laptop needs a […]

KFrost_CasuallyCursed

Casually Cursed by Kimberly Frost

19 March 2015 Nicole 0

I had high hopes for Casually Cursed by Kimberly Frost.  After reading the first few in the series, I was hooked and wanted MORE MORE MORE.  But, it is with a heavy reading heart that I report, Casually Cursed has, for now, ended up on the DNF pile.  I’m not sure if […]

Generation18_KArthur

Generation 18 by Keri Arthur

25 December 2014 Nicole 0

I love urban fantasy novels, usually because they are more dark, gritty and focus less on the romance aspect but still have sexual tension/romantic elements (though not always). Generation 18 by Keri Arthur, book 2 of her Spook Squad series, gave me all of this, and I devoured it in a […]

YGalenorn_PriestessDreaming

Priestess Dreaming by Yasmine Galenorn

11 December 2014 Nicole 1

I really hate to say what I’m about to say about a series I really enjoy. I was really looking forward to Priestess Dreaming by Yasmine Galenorn, but sadly, while it was a good read, overall, it fell flat. We’re the D’Artigo sisters: savvy half-human, half-Fae operatives for the Otherworld Intelligence Agency. […]

Demon’s Fury / Demon’s Vow / Inner Demon by Jocelynn Drake

27 November 2014 Nicole 0

When I heard the news that Jocelynn Drake would be releasing another Asylum Tales novel, I squee’d with glee and anxiously awaited to get a copy.  As you know, the final story Gage has to tell is released in a serial format: Demon’s Fury, Demon’s Vow and Inner Demon.  Rather than doing […]

KHarrison_TheWitchWithNoName

The Witch With No Name by Kim Harrison

13 November 2014 Nicole 0

I adore the Hollows series by Kim Harrison. It is one of my favorite UF series. This review is bittersweet. If you aren’t already aware The Witch with No Name is the final book in the series. I couldn’t wait to read it, I didn’t want to say goodbye to […]

NSingh_ArchangelsShadows

Archangel’s Shadows by Nalini Singh

30 October 2014 Nicole 0

After finishing Archangel’s Legion by Nalini Singh a few months ago, I was eagerly awaiting Archangel’s Shadows because I was dying to know what happens next for Elena, Raphael, et al. While Archangel’s Shadows isn’t nearly as action packed or intense as Archangel’s Legion, I still loved it and immensely enjoyed Janvier’s, aka the Cajun, and […]
