With a book and a tattoo.......

 I am never really any good with these things, I kind of feel like I am at a job interview. So let's see, what can I tell you about me and my little blog thingy? Ok well I am an avid reader and have been doing since I first learned how. About a year ago I became a part of the review world. I am in no way a professional and I pretty much do it for the fun of it. I have no rules and no guidelines for myself, well except for I always have to be completely honest. And you can tell by my reviews that I have posted so far that I have no problem at all with that. I add my personality to every review and I know things don't always make sense but I bet you laughed(hopefully). I usually stick to romance books but I have been know to pick up others if the cover and synopsis garb my attention. I currently help out on a couple blogs and reviews teams plus I am an occasionally guest reviewer on one. 

 To tell you about me well, I am a 30+ year old stay at home mom. I went completely blind about two years ago. But with a couple of eyes surgeries I now have complete vision back in one eye. I have a serious weakness for tattoos and I am currently proudly showing off 12 of my own. Yeahhhh, so that's it for now. 

Wicked Wind (Solsti Prophecy #1) by Sharon Kay

Wicked Wind  - Sharon Kay

I received this book for an honest review. 


 Ehhh, well.....hmmm. This book, what can I say about this book.  I guess i will just start with the characters as usual. We meet Nicole and her sister Brooke, whom after one night decide to become a crime fighting duo. Not only are they ninja like, they also have special talents. Nicole can control wind and temperature and Brooke can control water. Apparently though they can't just create it, they use what they have, like a small breeze or water from a bottle. So they combine all their skills and go out hunting for trouble. So this happens to be Nicole's story. I can honestly tell you that she was not my favorite character in this book. I found her a little dumb and annoying. I mean I get that she doesn't understand her "talent" but to honestly think that shes 100% human is just odd. She had to know that she just wasn't and for her to continue to argue it drove me nuts. And then when she didn't believe someone else s talent(I will get to that in a minute) but she is ok with her and her sisters irritated me a little.  She came off a little bratty at times and I just wanted to yell at her to grow up. Sigh, ok let me leave her alone for a bit. SO they find more than they bargained for one night out, a local demon feels their power and follows them. But it's ok folks because Gunnar is a good demon. He and his brothers help keep the bad demon population down on Earth. He is instantly drawn to Nicole but can't seem to figure out what she is. And here is where their little journey begins. So I liked Gunnar and I did kind of feel bad for him. I mean he had to put up with her lol. But he did seem to care a lot about her and just wanted to protect his mate. It took a long time for him to finally realize that she was his. Poor guy was so busy trying to figure out his heart, protect her, teach her and find out what she is. Oh let's not forget he also had to do his job. I still can't get the part where she thought he was tricking her when he made a fireball. Come on girl, you control wind! What is so hard to believe here? So the big mystery, what is Nicole? Will she be able to do what is prophesized?


 The story itself had some ups and downs. i mean there were literally up times and down times. I skimmed through a lot of the down times. I got bored a few times. Don't get me wrong the sex stuff was pretty hot, I did fan my face a few times. And yeah the action was great, I mean when it got going it really got going. I got all tense and stuff lol. Sigh but there was some cheesy stuff, I mean like fluffy cheesey. It just didn't seem to fit the story. Now I love dual POVs, I am a big sucker for them. This book had like 4, maybe 5. Ehh, that got a little annoying, it should be 3 at the most. But that's just my preference. I was a little disappointed with the end. I mean it just kind of enede, you didn't really get any info or any lead up to the next book. I mean are there going to be baby demons? Do Nicole and Brooke come close to getting any answers about some stuff? Heck, is there even going to be another book? I know that answer, but you get my point. Ok, I'm done. So the book had some ok characters, decent story, great hot stuff and great action. Will I be reading the next one? Maybe, because I kind of like one of the characters that is going to be in it.
