Reading My Life Away

Hello all. Well after not sleeping for 2-1/2 days, I am happy to say the sleep pattern has return to normal (but the dreams are pretty strange). So other than reading and not retaining anything (good thing there are always the old standbys - Psy-Changling series by Nalini Singh this time around) everything is just peachy.

Back in the so-called sane world, life moves on.

Lately I have been reading a lot of Lora Leigh lately. So I am reviewing the first two books in the Feline Breed series.

Feline Breed Book #1: Tempting the Beast

This book is published by Ellora's Cave Romantica Publishing and is definitely romance/erotic. The love scenes are intense and describe in detail.

Author Blurb: Callan Lyons is a genetic experiment. One of six fighting for freedom and the survival of their Pride. Merinus Tyler is the reporter who will tempt him, draw him, until the fury of the “mating frenzy” locks them into a battle of sexual heat there is no escape from.

Deception, blood, and the evil Genetics Council are hot on their trail. Callan will use his strength to try and save them both…and do all in his power to keep his woman in the process.


The story was very well incorporated with the love scenes, it did not feel awkward as in some erotic were the sex seems quite gratuitous. The storyline was interesting and kept me interested in were the story was heading. Tension, love, action, betrayal... what more could you ask for in a book?!

Rating: 4 out of 5


Feline Breed Book #2: The Man Within

This book is published by Ellora's Cave Romantica Publishing and is definitely romance/erotic. The love scenes are intense and describe in detail.

Author Blurb: He had protected her as a child, filled all her teenaged fantasies and stole her womanly heart, only to break it.

Now, fifteen months later, the news has released. The man she loves is one of the genetically altered Feline Breeds who have shocked the world with their presence. He’s also her mate. The mark on her neck attests to that. The fire that rages in her heart and in her body further proves it. But he hadn’t wanted her then; does he really want her now?

Deceit and treachery, born in the past, now haunt the present as Taber and Roni fight to make sense of a sudden bonding. The mating of heart, body and soul as the man and the beast within merge; both battling the forces raging against the union and dominance over the woman he claimed.

This story was not as riveting as the first and was also less romantic. For the first half of the story, both hero and heroine spend much time thinking about how the other left them just when things where heating up. The story was a bit weak and the love scene were less smoothly incorporated into the overall storyline. Felt like there should have been more of something. The love scenes seemed more "wham bam thank ma'am" rather then romantica.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

Wooo. Too good old original. Hmmm...they were something. Not that the new ones aren't good, but these where the beginning. Hehehehe.

You need to get some grade a sleep meds. Or just run around until you get so tired you fall asleep. What? Just because I do that doesn't me I'm crazy. Does it? No it doesn't! Hush voices in my head! ;)

Need Nalini's new books...(moans)

I think Lora Leigh has a certain type of fan base. I have read a few of her ebooks and thought they were okay, but her print ones have some interesting sex scenes... between brothers!! EWWWWW
