book review | Prince of Killers by Layla Reyne | Fog City 1

prince of killers a fog city novel layla reyneAuthor: Layla Reyne
Title: Prince of Killers
Series: Fog City 1
Genre: Crime; Action
Pages: 200
Rate: 3/5 | Goodreads

Eh, wanted something short, so I picked up “Prince of Killers” by Layla Reyne, first in the Fog City series. Sappy criminals and even sappier love story.

About the Book: Someone’s always trying to take the crown of the Prince of Killers, soon to be a king. So this here, new threat, would not have been all that different. Were it not for how the warning about it came to the head of the organization, in a shape of a handsome fella called Dante Perry. He seems to have a lot of sensitive information about a lot of things and is determined to stay nearby and keep that crime throne under whom it belongs to.

My Opinion: I understand the want and even a need to write some mortals into your killers. But there has to be a balance, else you end up with batman on your hands and that’s just not the same. A dull love story didn’t help it either. Not my cup of tea.

Yeah, not for me, I won’t be reading farther. 3 out of 5.

book review | Flash and Bang by Patricia Logan | 2

Flash and Bang book cover reviewAuthor: Patricia Logan
Title: Flash and Bang
Series: Death and Destruction 2
Genre: Action literature; LGBT romance
Pages: 347
Rate: 3/5 | Goodreads

Eh, alright. I’ve finished “Flash and Bang” by Patricia Logan, second book in Death and Destruction series. It was alright.

About the Book: A former marine with a past that comes back to bite him in the ass at the worst possible time. Just as he warmed up to the idea of being in love with his partner, amidst a wild chase of a terrorist cabal. Someone is trying to kill him and by doing so – keep endangering Wolfe, his partner. Time’s ticking and the list of suspects is thinning out…

My Opinion: I don’t enjoy long inner monologues of why the other person is so great and amazing. But the whole action was great, the chases, the explosions, the shooting. It’s half-half kind of situation here.

Book ended on a miniscule cliffhanger, so I’m considering the third book. Even if just to read about family reunion or something. But this one gets a 3 out of 5.
