This book is wonderfully written.
I absolutely love Faye and although she tries to overcome her own demons and is so determined no one could ever really love her. I enjoyed seeing her finally fit in and enjoy herself and her place in the family.
This book is a very easy read that will keep you turning the pages. I truly hope there will be another one evolving this interesting group of misfits.
It’s not your typical vampire book and I believe that is what I love about it. Its much more realistic.
Adrian Smith once again did a fantastic job on this one. It does not disapoint!

4 and 3 Stars for Railroad Spine by Geonn Cannon #FF @SupposedCrimes @GeonnCannon

0.2

Title: Railroad Spine
Author Name & Publisher: Geonn Cannon (Supposed Crimes)
Publication Date & Length: November 1, 2012 – 251 pgs

Synopsis

In a world where a little knowledge truly is a dangerous thing, Candice “Dice” Bodger is about to get an awful education.

Employed by the military as an airship captain, Dice knows exactly as much as she needs to get her cargo from one field to the next. Information is fiercely regulated, and sharing of knowledge is punishable by death. Dice has no interest in learning until she begins an illicit romance with the engineer assigned to her ship. The romance is shortlived when the man she loves is captured and Dice’s crime comes to light. Dice, though spared execution, is forced to give up her ill-conceived child moments after his birth. Despondent, she is given a new lease on love when she falls for the midwife who helped her through the pregnancy.

Marked as a criminal and deciding she might as well earn her tarnished record, Dice tracks down the group of rebels her lover belonged to and offers her services as a smuggler. In exchange, the rebels agree to help her find classified information that could lead her to finding her son.

Her work as a smuggler frequently puts her in danger but Dice soon discovers the true cost of crime when someone close to her is fatally injured. Faced with losing yet another loved one, Dice decides to take drastic measures that could destroy the entire rebellion… or put an end to the government’s tyranny once and for all.

This book was completely different than anything I have ever read but In a good way.
Although it took a while to get into it, once I got into it, I didn’t want to put it down.
This book is well written and full of adventure and sex.
With this group you never know what will happen next or what crazy plan they will come up with. I truly enjoyed this book and hope to read more about the Ruffians.

Mr Cannon researches his book extremely thoroughly. The name given to the ship in the novel is an actual freight carrying ship, Tamerlane. Tamerlane is also a poem by Edgar Allan Poe about loss of first real love, both name and poem are relevant to this novel. The escapades throughout the book are both exciting and supporting the underdog, the needy, the less able in society, all thoroughly deserving causes.  This makes us believe in the cause and want them to succeed. The event are as relevant today as they are to the future described in the novel.
The main characters in the book are brave yet show great emotion, great love for each other and to what they believe in.
I was personally particularly impressed with the dialect used to count,used on two occasions, Cumbrian.
My only criticism would be that in this novel to many masters are served, those who enjoy science fiction, those looking for an exciting adventure, those looking for a beautiful love story and those looking for sexual content. I feel adding so many sex scenes detracted from an otherwise excellent book.

This was a HOT little piece.. I absolutely loved how sexy and fun and carefree everyone was even though some where new and some had known each other for a bit. That’s what made it so great.
Our main couple joins a couple other people and things nearly immediately take off and show that even though they’d been together a year, there was some spice (and skill) missing in the bedroom.
Another great read by Lily Harlem.. As usual, she never lets me down with her very well written pieces, even though this one was short, it was still excellent and easy to read without any eye rolling or unbelievability to the characters.

As promised, this is a very hot, sexy story. There really isn’t much plot other than the sex. That’s not usually my cup of tea, but I found myself enjoying this. The characters were surprisingly well-drawn for such a short work with an erotic focus.There were some creative liberties taken with various sex acts that would have been unlikely in reality, and a couple of things that made me a little uncomfortable. For example, even though Annie clearly had the option to say no, and she ended up enjoying herself, Tim should have told her ahead of time what they were doing. Also, unless it’s been agreed to ahead of time, performing sex acts on a sleeping person is a no-no. There might be people who would be more bothered by that than I was.

Otherwise, this was a fun read, and I would be willing to read more of Ms. Harlem’s work.

This is a well written, Hot little quickie.

It will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next or who is doing who next.
 If Tim wanted to Amp up his sex life with Annie Im pretty sure he found a way she will never forget! And it may have made the difference in there relationship
If you are looking for something quick to read that is full of hot and steamy sex this would be the book for you!.

4.5 and 4 Stars for Beware of Wolf (Underdogs #2) by Geonn Cannon #FF #UrbanFantasy @GeonnCannon @SupposedCrimes

0.2

Author Name & Publisher: Geonn Cannon (Supposed Crimes)
Publication Date & Length: July 1, 2013, 235 pages

Synopsis

Everyone in Seattle knows the name Melody Louise Scott. The little blonde girl with a mischievous grin disappeared three days ago, and every night since her photo has appeared on the news with pleas for any information that leads to her being found safe. Not everyone knows the name Jenna Morris who was just reported missing. The only difference between the two girls is that Melody is white and Jenna is black.

Fearing the worst and knowing the police won’t give her daughter priority, Jenna’s mother hires Ari so she’ll know that finding her daughter is the top priority for at least one person. Ari agrees to take the case, putting her at odds with a Detective Lorne, whom she first encountered during the Gavin debacle. Lorne has grown suspicious of what happened that night and uses the opportunity of working together to try and figure out what secrets Ari is hiding.

Meanwhile Ari becomes friends with a British canidae Millicent “Milo” Duncan, another wolf whose intentions may not be as pure as they first appear. With Ari distracted by the case and keeping Detective Lorne at arms’ length, Dale becomes more suspicious of the new arrival’s true motives for being in Seattle.

This is probably my favorite of the series. I’m a sucker for rescues of any kind thou! Although they are all great reads and can be read alone, I suggest reading them all!
These books are well written and have plenty of suspense, twist, turns and romance to keep you turning pages.
I love Ari and Dale! The fact that they always do the right thing even when its the hardest thing to do! They are two of my favorite characters! I look forward to hopefully seeing more of them!

I received this book from Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.
A really brilliant novel. To call this book a mystery would be an understatement, it’s a mystery within a mystery, leaving the reader constantly needing to read on to discover what will happen next. It’s full of intrigue and excitement and just as one mystery seems to be solved another one arises some connected others may be connected or may not be, constantly keeping the reader in suspense is one of the strengths of this wonderful novel.
Although part of the “underdogs” series it is a stand alone book. Mr Cannon cleverly explains to new readers any previous information needed by still managing to make this information new and relevant for previous reader of this magnificent series.
One question I would ask was when did Milo learn about Ari’s collar as she seemed to know about it before seeing her?
I really would recommend this fascinating book. This is the third book in this series I have read and I am eagerly awaiting the next.

4 stars for Underdogs by Geonn Cannon #FF #Shifter @GeonnCannon @SupposedCrimes

Underdogs

Title: Underdogs (Underdogs #1)
Author Name: Geonn Cannon (Supposed Crimes)
Publication Date & Length: April 14, 2012 – 166 pgs

Synopsis

Ariadne Willow is a private investigator with a secret weapon. She’s a canidae, a person with the ability to transform into a wolf at will. Using her heightened senses to track and her shapeshifting to follow people without being seen, she’s made a decent business for herself and her associate Dale Frye. When one of the richest women in Seattle wishes to hire her, Ari and Dale think their ship has finally come in. All Ari has to do is observe the client’s tabloid-friendly daughter, fresh out of rehab, and confirm that she’s truly clean.

Ari thinks the case will be a piece of cake, but a moment of shocking violence changes everything. Soon Ari finds herself backed into a corner with no way out, forced to either run or risk losing everything she holds dear by fighting an enemy with unlimited power and resources. With Dale refusing to leave her side, Ari decides to make a stand to remind her enemies that there’s only one rule in betting…

Always bet on the underdogs.

Review

I really enjoyed this page turner of a novel. The introduction really set the scene with its traditional concepts on what proved to be an exciting new take on a very traditional tale.
The first two chapters, brilliantly captured the tone of the book as well as relating relevant information regarding both leading females. We were made aware of each of the characters strengths and weaknesses as well as their growing relationship and feelings towards each other.
Despite Ari being able to transform into a wolf this mystery was really believable due undoubtedly to the strength of the authors ability to create such a credible character in Ari. Dale, Ari’s partners character proved to be an antithesis and great human counterfoil to Ari.
Not only was this novel an excellent mystery but it also was a tale of a growing and love and devotion between the two women.
I was slightly disappointed in the way the ending appeared to happen so quickly with everything developing and falling into place with great speed and alacrity.
If you enjoy suspense, mystery and a story of true love then I feel this book will not disappoint.
Another plus to this novel was the summation regarding the canidae family which I found interesting and informative.

This book is well written and a easy read. The short stories left me wanting more and this was exactly what I wanted!

I love how Ari and Dana never fail to kick ass no matter the odds stacked against them!

AuthorBio

Geonn Cannon was born in a barn and raised to know better than that. He was born and raised in Oklahoma where he’s been enslaved by a series of cats, dogs, two birds and one unexpected turtle. He’s spent his entire life creating stories but only became serious about it when he realized it was a talent that could impress girls. Learning to write well was easier than learning to juggle, so a career was underway. His high school years were spent writing stories among a small group of friends and reading whatever books he could get his hands on.

Geonn was inspired to create the fictional Squire’s Isle after a 2004 trip to San Juan Island in Washington State. His first novel set on the island, On the Air, was written almost as a side project to another story he wanted to tell. Reception to the story was so strong that the original story was put on the back burner to deal with the world created in On the Air. His second novel set in the same universe, Gemini, was also very well received and went on to win the Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Best Novel, Dramatic/General Fiction. Geonn was the first male author to receive the honor.

While some of his novels haven’t focused as heavily on Squire’s Isle, the vast majority of Geonn’s works take place in the same universe and have connections back to the island and its cast of characters (the exception being the Riley Parra series). In addition to writing more novels based on the inhabitants of Squire’s Isle, Geonn hopes to one day move to the real-life equivalent to inspire further stories.
