Review: Episode 1: Come Inside! (MythU) by Cunning Kimmy

Episode 1: Come Inside! (MythU)Episode 1: Come Inside! by Cunning Kimmy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

About the Book
What would you do if you received a scholarship to a college that doesn't exist, where the students and staff are all creatures from myth and folklore? If you’re the only human? If these same creatures want you, want to do things to you that you've only dreamed of? From the moment she steps off the bus and into the mist, Lisa Swallow must answer these questions for herself as beings beyond belief keep trying to get into her pants, more accurately under her skirt, or is she trying to get into theirs? Welcomed by a succubus, Lisa jumps head first onto a roller coaster of sexual awakening where her every hidden fantasy—and even some she’s never considered—is fulfilled.

Monsters, and Fairies, and Gods... Oh, my! Welcome to MythU.
What to say? This read isn't for the faint of heart.  All of the scenes in this first episode is really in your face. That's not a bad thing but the build-up is what makes an erotic scene spectacular.  With this episode the build-up is missing.

Great concept and character development but lacks a plot. This is just episode one of this serial but I had hoped for more of a story. I can't deny that my mouth was wide open collecting flies while reading. Hopefully, in the following episodes reader's will be able to get to know the characters better and see more of the storyline. Overall this entry merits a 3.25 rating.

Review: Stone Cold Fox (Cougarville #3) by Evangeline Anderson

Stone Cold Fox (Cougarville #3)Stone Cold Fox by Evangeline Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

How to begin? Well, lets start with the fact that I really like the series and the angle which the author presents the shifter world. The author incorporates a little myth and other elements that help to separate this story from the others that are out right now. To me, the difference is a big PLUS considering most shifter tales can get a little too predictable. In the case of the Cougarville series there are enough little twists and turns that will have the reader coming back to see what happens next.

The male leads ... the alphas of the series are great. All three leads in this series have been compassionate, patient and understanding. Reese Cooper the fox shifter is the most patient of them all. His character had no choice but to be patient because his counterpart (rejuvenating Jo Farrell) is very, VERY irritating. While reading, I tried to keep in mind that her character was coming from a place of hurt and fear. Jo was just so ... I don't know ... distrustful and selfish. Jo made the second heroine in this series that I didn't really care for. Secondary characters like Fiona (the apothecary) more than make up the difference and I am really excited to see more of this character and find out more of her secrets. There are other secondary characters being introduced that could possibly have their own story soon and it will be interesting to see what the author does with them.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
