Book review Lover Eternal by author JR Ward

OK i'm going to flat out tell you this one is a 5 out of 5 Modokker Book picks book. It really is. I decided i needed to reread this book the other day and i did because Rhage and Mary's story is my favorite of all the Black Dagger Brother series of books. Rhage is my fav brother as well. You probably guessed that by now though. OK if your a fan of Paranormal romance you should read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by author JR Ward. There are now 8 books in the series with the latest Lover Mine that came out this past April. I'm still working on reading that one.  Here is a little blurb on Lover Eternal Rhage's book.
In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Possessed by a deadly beast, Rhage is the most dangerous of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...

Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites. He’s the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover—for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him.

Mary Luce, a survivor of many hardships, is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage’s protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. Her faith in miracles was lost years ago. But when Rhage’s intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves…

I don't really want to say what happens cause i don't want to give anything away but if your interested in this series you best to start with Dark Lover the first in the series and work your way threw them all. You won't be disappointed. I will tell you this the players in this book are humans, vampires and those of the lessening society. The Black dagger Brotherhood are the vampires that defend their race from the Lessening society which are the dead still living ( kind of) and the humans mostly are unaware and in the way.

Book review: Hidden Agendas by author Lora Leigh

I admit i've been slacking on my reviews of late. I've been reading just not having the time to write a review. Recently i picked up a book of author Lora Leighs at the book store. This got me looking for her website and seeing what other books she has written. If you don't know of Lora Leigh she writes Erotica. From what I've read of her books some have a little some o have a lot. I think it depends on your comfort level and what you like which books of hers i would read. I've read several and have no qualms recommending them to anyone who asks. I would point out though that these are definitely not for those under the age of 18. That being said let's talk about Hidden Agendas. This is the 4th book in the series. I have not read the ones before this one but plan to. This series hooks in with the Elite ops series as well. You'll recognize the some of the same characters in both series. I've read only a couple of the Elite ops books but i'm working on the rest.

Here is a little taste of Hidden Agendas.

Tough-as-nails Navy SEAL Kell Kreiger is the best there is at searching, rescuing, and taking no prisoners…yet even the rush of ever-more dangerous missions isn’t enough to satisfy him. Haunted by a tortured past, Kell seeks distraction in a secret world of dark intimacies. But when Emily Stanton, the one ray of light in Kell’s shadowy existence, is pursued by a ruthless drug lord, the rules of the game suddenly change—and Kell will have to go deeper undercover than he ever imagined…

Emily has loved Kell ever since her father, a prominent politician, rescued him from a brutal life on the streets. They were kids then, too young to act on what was growing between them…but now that Emily is ready, the handsome, headstrong SEAL has decided he’s no good for her. Ever since he rescued her from Diego Fuentes’ compound, Kell’s only duty has been to keep Emily safe. But Fuentes isn’t finished with Emily—or Kell. And to protect Emily, Kell has no choice but to lay himself—body, soul, and secrets—bare…and fight against evil with all his heart.
Sound pretty good? Kell has always had a thing for Emily. He tried to deny it but once she is kidnapped he finds he can't deny what he feels for her any longer. Emily has also had an attraction to Kell but he always seemed to stay away from her. Emily tried for 2 years to live her life to get back to what she lost when she was kidnapped. Her father sent body guard after body guard but she quickly got rid of all of them and then her life is threatened again. Kell is assigned to pretend to be her lover and protect her. The pretend doesn't last long and they find their way to each other and Kell tries to protect her from the bad guys. Action packed and full of hot sexy scenes. I give Hidden Agendas 5 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. This was one of those books i wanted to read in one sitting!
