I have been reading a bunch of paranormal romance lately thanks to my friend Christine who recommends me books , my kindle, and being a little bit of an escapist lately.
I prefer reading trashy books to watching trashy television.
Black Dagger Brotherhood
I just finished the Black dagger Brotherhood series by J.R Ward which was a new take on vampires and their advassaries although the adversaries smelled like baby powder hm mm pretty scary and they cant get boners but the vampires can.
The lingo is at times painful,(I’m not a fan of abbreviations) & there are probably some of the worst similes I have ever read, the women wear allot of scrunchies and turtlenecks and there are allot of sex scenes which is OK but REALLY too drawn out for my taste at one point a character refers to a mans testicles as his potent sac which made me laugh out loud in embarrassment , oh and the Brotherhood standard uniforms are a little leather man matrix for me but besides that i read all seven books in a few weeks so i was definitely entertained enough to read them all , but only because i could download them instantly i don’t think i would have walked into a book store and bought them.
This week i am reading The Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost I am book three and started reading them three days ago.
Its totally campy and entertaining full of drama,action,sexual tension and silliness.
Cat is a half vampire half human who hunts vampires in search of finding her father the vampire who raped her mother .She is an amateur until she meets Bones a 200+ year old bounty hunting vampire who she forms an unlikely arrangement with .
Of course it turn into a romance and that’s the first book.
I recommend these for an entertaining quick read.
I am liking them as much as The Twilight books.
Southern Vampire Mysteries
Third i finished The southern vampire mysteries series by Charlaine Harris a while ago but since they fit into this category. They are the books the True Blood HBO show is based on.
These about the waitress Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire boyfriend Bill Compton. Vampires have recently been allowed to come out in the open, living on synthesized blood; the party line is that vampirism is a severe allergy to garlic and sunlight, but as some people find out, they are really supernatural and there are many more supernatural beings around. Sookie herself is telepathic, which she mostly considers a nuisance: her attraction to Bill is partly that she can not read his thoughts, and therefore can have a “normal” relationship with him.
I loved this series i liked all the different supernatural characters, shape shifters,werewolves,vampires and all the back stories and their cultures and hierarchy.
