Review: Dark Desires After Dusk by Kresley Cole

Cadeon Woede will stop at nothing to atone for the one wrong that will haunt him forever. But once he secures the key to his redemption, the halfling Holly Ashwin, Cade finds that the woman he thought he could use for his own ends and then forget haunts him as much as his past. A tormented warrior she should fear, but can't deny...

Raised as a human, Holly never knew that some frightening legends are real until she encounters a brutal demon who inexplicably guards her like a treasure. Thrust into a sensual new world of myth and power, with him as her protector, she begins to crave the demon's wicked touch. Surrender to dark desires...

Yet just when he earns Holly's trust, will Cade be forced to betray the only woman who can sate his wildest needs -- and claim his heart?

“I want to go, but not alone with him! I don’t suppose you could hire someone less…” “Incredibly hot? With less lickable horns and a less sexy Sith Ifrican accent?”

I went into DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK liking it quite a bit like the last few books, but came out frustrated and annoyed. I think I made it a little halfway before I started getting annoyed and I guess part of that is because I found the heroine incredibly annoying. It was an exhausting read and I think my expectations may have been raised a bit too high for this book because I didn't take into account that I may have wanted to strangle the heroine.

"Fate decides . . . who I can be most satisfied with." Nibbling her lip, she asked, "Have you slept with anyone else since you knew it was me?"

"Gave a halfhearted try for a witch . . . she wanted a werewolf instead." There was no getting around it--Holly was jealous of the witch. But then Cadeon said, "And I wanted you.”


I adored Cadeon when he first appeared in Wicked Deeds on a Winter Night. I found him playful, exciting, fun and easy to talk to in a best friend kind of way. Cadeon had messed up badly with his brother and he is trying to make up for it and making up for it means losing her mated female right when he is finally able to be with her. It's heartbreaking, but Cadeon is at the point where is is constantly asking himself is he really going to make up his past mistakes to his brother by betraying the one woman that he loves?

Without looking up, she said, “Cadeon, a chance can’t be reduced from zero.” “Gods, I love it when you talk mathy to me.”

And that one woman is the most dumbest and idiotic heroine's I've ever met. The main reason why I didn't enjoy this book so much is because of Holly. She is basically a geek. A so called smart woman who is a brainiac and gets caught into this immortal mess.It is very obvious that Cade and Holly are attracted to each other. Cade doesn't fight it, but Holly fights it for the longest time, but we are more than halfway through the book and she is still pushing him away. I understand pushing him away. And some of the arguments she got into with him is only something a nerd would argue about. I feel like the middle of this book was so boring.

“You dress her in a wet T-shirt and make her carry the bags? Damn, Cade, I like how you roll"

And Holly was the most uninteresting person ever! She is the definition of geeky and nerdy. Her so called sickness was a complete joke! I just didn't connect with the heroine this time. DARK DESIRES AFTER DUSK was still pretty good, but it was just okay for me. The heroine really did ruin the book for me. I loved the dialogue and the amazing storyline as usual! How could I not? I am looking forward to the next Immortals After Dark book and hopefully it will make up for this one being not so great.

Review: Venom by Jennifer Estep

Title:  Venom
Author:  Jennifer Estep
Series:  Elemental Assassin, #3
Publisher:  Pocket
Release Date:  September 28, 2010
Pages:  389
Rating:  


What kind of assassin works pro bono?

It’s hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family. Which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most.

To the public, I’m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland’s best barbecue joint. To my friends, I’m the Spider, retired assassin. I still do favors on the side. Like ridding a vampire friend of her oversized stalker—Mab’s right-hand goon who almost got me dead with his massive fists.

At least irresistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I’ll take my chances. Then there’s Detective Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland’s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sister was dead. She probably thinks the same about me. Little does she know, I’m a cold-blooded killer . . . who is about to save her life.

Owen drained the rest of his tonic. “You know, I’m not used to waiting for a woman to call.” “Well, then this new experience will be good for your ego,” I replied.

Oh my, this Elemental Assassin Series by Jennifer Estep is getting better and better by the book. I extremely enjoyed VENOM. I mean you have this amazing heroine that seriously knows how to kick some "bad guy" butt! VENOM was definitely more action-packed and funnier which I loved and there is definitely more growth by each and every book. I will get this out of the way. I hate the way we get the stupid repetition it really un-necessary to have to read about stuff that I have known for the last two book and it's extremely annoying.

“I’m just wondering how exactly I went from being the Spider to the Robin fucking Hood of the greater Ashland area... Instead of stealing from the rich, I’m stabbing them to death for the poor.”

But anyways, in VENOM Gin finally comes face to face with her long lost baby sister, Bria. But Gin doesn't let Bria know who she actually is. And stuff with Mab and her sick bad freaks has been getting out of hand lately. By the end of the book, Gin finally comes to the decision to go after Mab and make her pay for not only everything she has done, but for destroying her family. We find out some answers to quite a few questions that had crossed my mind and look forward to more of this amazing world of the Elemental Assassin.

“I don’t judge you for what you’ve done, Gin. Why are you judging me for another man’s mistakes? Because Donovan Caine did make a mistake,” Owen said in a soft voice. “Letting someone like you go.”

And I must say it again, I have fallen madly in love with Owen Grayson. It takes my breath away. He says the perfect thing at the right times and he wants to be with Gin for her and nothing else. And I think Gin made some good realizations in the relationship department in this book. I think Owen is a good match for Gin because of his past and he is a man who cares about who you are in the inside not what you are. He is such a better match that that idiot, Donovan Caine. I hope things go smoothly for Owen and Gin!

“Are you sure he’s in there?” I asked. Finn grinned. “Baby, would I lie?” I stared at him. “Okay, frequently,” he admitted. “But you can trust me on this.

I hate the bad guys to death and I for one am glad that Gin is taking them down and hope by the end we get a really good showdown between Gin and Mab. This series is so bad ass that I would not accept anything less. The action sequences are amazing and how could you not love the dialogue as well! I am becoming more impressed with Elemental Assassin Series by the minute.
