Review Tracking the Tempest - Nicole Peeler + guestblogging

Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and Ryu - Jane's bloodsucking boyfriend - can't let a major holiday go by without getting all gratuitous. An overwhelming dose of boyfriend interference and a last-minute ticket to Boston later, and Jane's life is thrown off course. 
Ryu's well-intentioned plans create mayhem, and Jane winds up embroiled in an investigation involving a spree of gruesome killings. All the evidence points towards another Halfling, much to Jane's surprise...

My thoughts:
It was good, it was just not as good. yes yes you have heard it all before, book 2 syndrome. I kept comparing, and truth be told it was the end in book 1 that made me want more. Sure I want more here, just not buy now more. More like, when I have bought all my awesome books, then maybe. it was still good, just not awesome.

Jane, Jane, dump that guy. Honestly, sure he is hot and good and bed but the things he says sometimes. And the things he lets others get away with. I just could not stand it. Please go for the cute doggie instead.

Anyway, good hunt for the killer, even if Rye, Ruy, oh great I forgot how to spell his name, that guy annoyed me at times. Nothing gets dealt with. I want to see bad guys suffer.

Conclusion:
The series is good, but I need Jane to shape up. Even hot sex is not always worth it.

  9. OOO, it's one of those with an annoying guy for a boyfriend ;))) I'm one of those people who haven't read Nicole Peeler yet, maybe someday... and I agree, really boring cover, but I don't like US covers as well.

    1. I did not like the US covers at first either, they were so YA and silly. But after looking at this I really like the US ones suddenly

    1. It's very meh. Dunno what they were thinking

  17. That happens often with me - the second book doesn't always measure up to the first. That's one of the drawbacks in reading more series than standalones, but I do love series books :)

  19. AAah I knew the name but not the cover and it was bothering me, now I know why, it's not the same cover I saw everywhere. A friend recommended to me this series and I think I need to try the first one so I'll see.

  20. Oh bummer. Sorry you didn't enjoy as much as the first. I had to laugh out at the scene where she got out of the car and slipped though. ;D LOL!

  21. I've read Tempest Rising about a couple of years back... as far as I can remember, I don't think it encouraged me to read book 2 at all...

    1. The thing is the book was good, the end was great. So maybe i just expected too much from book 2 then
