I enjoyed these three novellas featuring the Dark Ones, Half-Moon Hollow, & Midnight Liaisons series. I read these novellas a long time ago way before I started reviewing and I remembered a little of what was going on. It was nice to re-read them. It made me want to re-read the Dark Ones series and to read more of the Half-Moon Hollow series. The Midnight Liaisons novella in this anthology was a new to me author/series. It didn’t impress me enough to want to read more in the series.
Shades of Gray (Dark Ones #10.5) by Katie MacAlister – Rated: 3.5 Stars
It’s been awhile since I read the Dark Ones series. This novella was fun and I’m thinking I might go back and re-read the series.
From what I remember in the series Noelle had a Dark One and is a Beloved, but it turned out she wasn’t that Dark One’s Beloved and her X feel for her roommate instead. In this novella she feels rejected and when she gets another chance at finding love in Grayson she’ll do what she can to protect and keep him.
Even if you haven’t read the series the author does a good job of explaining what a Drak One is and all the steps in the joining process for Beloveds.
Shades of Gray was a sweet and fun read.
Undead Sublet (Half-Moon Hollow #2.5) by Molly Harper – Rated: 4 Stars
I’ve just started to get back into the Half-Moon Hollow series. It’s light humor, fun, and enjoyable. I like Ms. Harper’s humor.
In the Undead Sublet we have Tess a human and a chef. She’s overworked herself and other areas of her life aren’t going so well, so she ends up taking a vacation to Half-Moon Hollow. Then there’s Sam her unexpected roommate in the home she rents. These two don’t hit it off, but eventually they both find healing and what they need in each other. I love how Tess ends up falling in love with the town and starts to build an exciting future there, when she didn’t have plans to stay. Sam I loved him. He was sweet and kept Tess on her toes.
Undead Sublet was a humorous, sweet, fun and enjoyable read.
Out with a Fang (Midnight Liaisons #2.2) by Jessica Sims – Rated: 3 Stars
This was a new to me author and series. We get a second chance love story.
Well Ruby is a shifter and hasn’t been able to find a date since she broke up with her X. Deep down she still loves him, but humans and supernaturals can’t date, one nights sure, but no permanent relationships allowed. What does she do, but turn to a dating agency and go on a blind date. Things get weird and unusual at the get go.
This was a fast-paced story. The second chance at love comes quickly and they fall into bed fast. The vampires featured in this novella aren’t new. They are the dead ones with no beating hearts and can’t be out in the sun. All that typical vampire lore.
Out with a Fang was just ok.
