envious of the one Jane Bennet wore in Pride and Prejudice BBC version Now, the practicality of having a big sweeping hooded cape in Australia has held me back from ordering one For starters, it would be too bloody hot Secondly, where the heck am I going to wear it So, I saw the cover of Gypsy s Blood from a recommendation thanks, Lily on and I was intrigued enough to look a bit closer.So, I m reading the blurb and nodding my head thinking Yes, this works for me THEN REVERSE HAREM Now, don t mistake my explosive reaction as being fully in the negative It just kind of shocked me for two seconds It s been a wee while since I ve stumbled across any group action in my reads so I had to readjust my expectations I m feeling kind of risqu and up for taking a walk on the wild side why the heck not Ummm excuse me, I think someone left out the harem action.Ok, what I was expecting and what I got was completely different, but, as you can see by the four stars, I still really enjoyed Gypsy Blood In my dirty little mind, I was picturing Violet getting ravished by the monsters What I got was a young woman moving to a town and finding out that all those scary stories she thought were unreal, were very, very real Violet is surrounded by monsters and some of those monsters won t leave her alone Side note these are my kind of monsters, there are no 3 headed, green skinned or ugly monsters in sight These monsters are the bossy, growly, sexy and magical kind that I love.At times while reading Gypsy Blood I was a little frustrated Things seem to be moving along at a snail s pace and I had so many questions that needed to be answered And, of course, I was waiting the whole time for a little of this harem action to kick in But, alas, we re in the first book of the series, and I need to get to know the lay of the land before I get any action.Honestly, I chuckled when I read the author s note Don t kill me Please I was lucky enough to have Gypsy s Blood recommended to me at the same time the second book was released I went in knowing it was going to have a cliffie ending, but with the second one waiting, it hardly fazed me.The characters were interesting, the storyline, while slow to begin with, definitely picked up speed There is an underlying hum of sexual attraction between Violet and the monsters but at this stage, we re still mostly in the dark as to where it will go I ve already bought Gypsy Freak and I can t wait to see if All the Pretty Monsters come together for the reverse harem thingamajiggy flag 26 likesLike see review View all 6 comments Dec 28,

I mean, this books name was thrown to me at random, as most thing are in the RHR lair The place is wack There are rooms within which are populated by LOTS of cake, swooning, books and the occasional random stranded male specimen, all randomly and suddenly airborne without notice, rhyme or reason It is quiet and then boom suddenly out of nowhere everyone appears, chaos ensuing shortly thereafter It was a fine day when I walked into a room and narrowly avoid a book about Archangels or something that was thrown at my beautiful face, along with a piece or three of cake Suddenly out of the chaos a voice rose, saying GYPSY S BLOOD I had only a moment to think of it before Praying Kitten Aqua Sparkle poofed on either side of me, chirping about it so loud you could hear them from space.Having read her very first book, Four Psychos, I didn t need much convincing to read this one I read it I loved it.Now, having not finished her other series and me in reality being three couch potatoes and a muffin in a fifties dress pretending to be human that knows how to people, I can t help but compare these two books in a fashion that greatly resembles nothing of a review.These two books are nothing alike yet they have two key ingredients that are the same in both The Structure and the Pace.Beyond that everything and everyone else is different.The story is intriguing I ve never read anything revolving around Gypsy s and the paranormal elements blended well with it to create something new and exciting The characters were great, and above all, distinct Each one had its own clear voice To reiterate this was the fact that we got POVs from most all main characters My absolute favourite one was Anna, The Pet Ghost Sidekick extraordin re to our heroine I can go as far as to say that I WANT AN ANNA FOR MESELF ASAP The guys are my seconds I mean is the sun blue Yes, yes it is I love their frienemy status You can just taste the comfortable second skin familiar hate that can only be brought forth from the strongest of Bromances.I think there was someone else I had to mention Hmm Oh yes, Violet or whatever her name is Lol, don t let me fool you my peoples She is a good character, she s just quiet As death That however, fits extremely well with the rest of the cast If she was with other people instead of this set then you would have forgotten her before you started reading I forgot her at times during, if I am to be honest Overall I greatly enjoy French Fries and being as random and as creepy as fuck You can now pretend you haven t already stopped reading and go away to read

when her mother died because her mom left her the shop in the will, she assumed it would be safe there.The town ends up being full of monsters and monster hunters There is no way for Violet to hide who she is even though she does try.I absolutely loved Anna Her character had me laughing out loud so often my family thought I was losing my mind Anna is so perfectly, insanely, inappropriate flag 19

s going to be hella satisfying The tension is building and I love it I m supposed to be the reckless one Arion is the psychopath Emit is the broken, savage beast Vance is the one who has his knickers jammed up his asshole and is supposed to keep the rest of us in line They haven t shown us too much of their monster side yet but I have high hopes I live in Ireland right So my view of gypsy s are not in line with the gypsy s we have here in this book.I need to re align my mental picture from this to They seem to be a race of supernaturals in their own right but with some of the foresight and potion making we might associate with a gypsy fortune teller Violet is a powerful one and holds some secrets herself I cant go on any, suffice to say this is making my top 10 RH but then so did 4psychos by the end of book 1 so I still have my fingers crossed this doesn t head the same way Maybe it took a nose dive because Kristy was working on this little gem instead flag 12 likesLike see

started reading this one and got about halfway through before I remembered Oh There was a reverse harem in there This is one of the few times where under the influence me and actually got along but I do not condone this method of shopping or you will end up with a 5 pound bag of gummy bears delivered to your door and received by a slightly judgmental husband.Anyways, I went into this book thinking it was just a quirky paranormal romance and while it was that, the addition of the reverse harem was just icing on the cake.Violet has old gypsy blood which makes her able to see ghosts and interact with all the spooky spooks in the world, including but not limited to werewolves and vampires Her crazy albeit charming sidekick, Anna, is the world thirstiest ghost who is about to jump on any warm male that she can find and give you a full narration in the process Since she can t actually touch anybody and nobody but Violet can see her she is than happy to live vicariously through her friend and encourage her most strongly to get on the pony.Violet is sort of the silent but deadly kind She is powerful with the magic in her blood and she uses it in unconventional ways I love that she able to take people by surprise in this book and actually fucking defend herself instead of relying on the menfolk to get her out of sticky situations.This is definitely a promising start to the series I don t want to get too much into the plot because there is so much that could be spoiled, even by just describing what the hell is going on There are twists and turns and manly men that like to walk around nekkid Which Anna is completely okay with As I would be too Yow flag 12 likesLike see review Dec 17, 2018 Talltree rated it it was amazing Shelves b rh 4.5 stars flag 8 likesLike see review Jan

predicament, but I love them all and couldn t tell.yiu which my favourite is at his point There s also so much unexplored back story between the four men that I can t wait to find out Violet is a great character who also has so much about her that we only just scratch the surface of here She s a monster herself, but neither she nor the reader at this position not really know what that means I loved her attitude and her reactions and actions towards what happen to her She s very likeable and I rooted for her pretty much straight away.Her ghostly side kick, Anna was both absolutely helarious and at times a little annoying, but I thought she was a great addition, too She reminds me a lot of Paca in her crazier moments.In summary, if you liked Four Psychos then I really think you ll love this It s different, but has a lot of the same vibe and character dynamics, but improved in my opinion Apparently the next one is out in 3 weeks and I cannot wait and while there is a cliffhanger, things get really interesting flag 5 likesLike see review View 2 comments Jan 15, 2019 MrsJoseph rated it really liked it Recommends it for Soo Shelves 2019, 2019 reading challenges, i am a cover

book in the series comes out early January so there s not too long to wait.The world building in this book was fascinating, and there were a lot of interesting twists While the general idea of a parent passing and leaving behind a child who doesn t know much about what they are or what they can do isn t unprecedented, the spin that Kristy Cunning takes is unique and intriguing As always with her books, I often found myself unable to predict the future plot points There were a few that were easy to see coming, but they were done in a way that built anticipation and made me want to get the reveal faster.It s so hard to talk about the male leads without spoiling anything, but I want to so badly Reverse harems often have almost interchangeable male leads, but the ones in All the Pretty Monsters were distinct, and I loved each of them for a different reason The heroine for the novel, Violet, was also awesome She was a really strong female character, and while it s easy to write an innocent, na ve heroine in this type of novel I love that Kristy Cunning made her humorous and wily instead Despite her lack of experience and knowledge for the situation she finds herself in, Violet manages to gain the upper hand in many of her exploits with the male leads And of course there s Anna, who kept me laughing throughout the whole novel I m excited to hear what she has to say in the next few novels where the relationships will really kick off This novel is a slow burn in terms of romance, so no sex in the first book of the series.The only con was the occasionally repetitive descriptions or sentence structure I think this novel was pushed out very quickly, so there was probably only basic editing done It didn t occur often, and I m sure it s something that will be fixed after a thorough editing To be honest, I don t care much, especially because I only noticed it once or twice and I think it s a small price to pay to be able to have the books published faster I need to know what happens next Even with this, Kristy Cunning s reverse harem novels are superior to so many of the others out there, particularly in terms of original and interesting plot and characters.I strongly recommend this novel to anyone wanting to read a reverse harem It s a great mixture of world building, romance, and humor, and I couldn t put the book down flag 3 likesLike see review Jan 23,

best friend, the stalker ghost Anna I thought it was an odd move because the author repeatedly mentions via Anna that Anna is much interesting than Violet, and I can t really argue with that Violet apparently has cool powers and funny reactions to Anna, but that s about it.Anna, though omfg, Anna Pretty much everything that comes out of her mouth is pure gold She is a compulsive liar who can no longer determine fantasy from reality, so there is no way to predict what she will say next except to assume that it will be highly inappropriate and sexual.One of the funniest things about the guys is how they must pretend that they can t see Anna, no matter how bad her sexual harassment gets Yes, I apparently have a double standard there Anyway, my second favorite thing about the guys is their overall dynamic Vance is the stiff tough guy, Emit is the pretty boy dumb dumb, Damien is the invisible one , and Ace is their stalker I fully accepted Vance into the harem as soon as he started badly painting Violet s toenails to try to calm her down I m going to be honest, I really want to see a hate bang which I m usually very much not into between him and Emit because of how often Emit s nudity is a topic of conversation between them I guess I d say Damien is the weak link here because I m not sure what really differentiates him from the other guys other than his species They re all horny infants, so that doesn t help in telling them apart I guess he s overtly sexual than the others, though And then There s Ace I m going to be honest, I have some unresolved feelings here I kind of saw his twist coming but not the full extent of it He s the main reason I m so desperate for book 2 because he was my favorite and now I have no idea where things really stand Also, I have no idea why he kept telling Violet that Vance is gay unless that was the author laying the groundwork and showing us that he lies I just figured that out Ok, moving on.Gah, that ending tho It wasn t even really a cliffhanger, tbh The scene was over I just wasn t ready for the book to be over.As much as I was loving this book, I had a few problems with the writing particularly some plot points that seemed to come out of nowhere 50% into the book, we suddenly learn about several magic powers that the MC has apparently had all along I don t think there was any good reason to withhold that information for that long And it was just casually dropped into conversation It really bugged me The writing mechanics had some issues as well for example, problems with the inclusion of too many words e.g nothing covering him but an open robe on and the overall order of the worldly pecking order , word choice e.g crucial tone, wail instead of whale, two men strangle against either wall, I haven t been abridged on the pecking order or politics, serious instead of seriously, rooting instead of rutting, and the repeated use of oblivion instead of obliviousness , periods after questions and question marks after statements, and problems with subject verb agreement e.g men who can turn themselves invisible has made me paranoid.I think I only have about a week left to wait based on the afterword, but that still feels too long I seriously loved this PROGRESS UPDATES 15% I love these guys SO MUCH Unwind your coattails from your asshole, I say dismissively to Vance s rigid back, as he shoves his hands into the

not matter that most of what the sidekick says made no sense it also did not matter that said sidekick is quite useless and makes no contribution to the story line what so ever lol, I still thoroughly enjoyed her every time she popped up or flew haphazardly through a wind shield.Violet, our 25 yo FMC, is a gypsy and not necessarily a good one After loosing her mother and having her own tragic run in with death, Violet is in hiding from her past and her name Being a Portocale gypsy is a dangerous thing to be Violet knows this but in all essence she is naive to this world her mother lived in Starting a new live following in her mothers footsteps while disguising herself as her mothers niece should maybe get her some answers or not In actuality Violet steps off into a hawt mess of a supernatural world in which a Portocale gypsy is one of the most hunted and yet most protected people all the sense is made here Violet completely in the dark about the supernatural world comes into a rude awakening as she realizes her mother did not prepare her for squat and never explained much of anything to her and now Violet must not only come to terms with this new world, the people hunting her, her new dark, mysterious, and oh so close mouthed clients, and maybe even a monster within World building wise it was actually difficult to sink into this because we have a slowly revealing backstory and some close mouthed characters leading the way we are just getting snippets here and there It doesn t actually bother me when as the reader I am learning as the FMC does, however, I absolutely get bothered when no one will tell the FMC jack squat and she ends up doing some stupid stuff because someone forgot her lessons after going on and on about making sure she is taught sigh I felt the characters had some undeniable chemistry with some great banter but fact of the matter is I m shipping Anna, my new soul sister Its quite ridiculous because she really adds nothing to the story line at this point in the book, but she is what made it enjoyable for me lol.Yes I ll be rushing right into book 2 because reasons Hopefully in book 2 we come up with some answers to all these questions and we save Anna flag 2 likesLike see review Karen Mess Wonderful review I m definitely fitting this one into my reading schedule, and soon Jan 31, 2019 09 50PM Jan 26, 2019 Erin Proud Book

loved this book Violet is a fascinating combination of innocence and ignorance with power and intuition It s impossible to guess how she will respond or react at any time It was also impossible for her not to burrow into my heart I sympathized with her, got frustrated with her, worried with her, and laughed with her Her best friend, lingerie ghost Anna amused me to no end I was afraid that she would be irritating when she was first introduced but she left me laughing on almost every page Truly, I can t believe what came out of her mouth Hilarious Vance, Damian, Emit, and Ace are all very separate and individual characters There s no denying they are absolutely beautiful monsters Their 1000 year history with one another, once closer than brothers, now semi deadly enemies makes for a great dynamic Vance s perfection and appreciation for beauty, Damien s mirror obsession and sex issues, Emit s nudity all lighten the heaviness surrounding their anger and general unhappiness with life I am not sure how I feel about Ace I loved him at first, then saw who he was and what was coming I m not sure how we come back from his betrayal and abuse of trust I enjoyed the initial world building and look forward to the full history of the Alphas and the Portocale gypsies I look forward to finding out Marta s reasoning for everything she did and did not do I want to know about Violet s secret I look forward to the point when this series goes RH It s set up to be one but at this point, there are no relationships Damien is definitely interested but can t Deadly, not happy ending Vance is supposedly gay Well done, Ace Emit is sleeping with every one of his Omegas not attractive in a harem member Ace too many problems to even begin So many things have to be resolved before I can be happy with this harem Plus, I have to be convinced beyond that that the Alpha s are interested in Violet for the right reasons and care about her not only about themselves and the curse This

It wasn t the title that pulled me in There seem to be two things that make me look twice at a book cover, a striking not necessarily handsome bloke and a beautiful cape I m not sure what it is about them, but I would LOVE to have a hooded cape of my own Maybe it s the historical romance reader in me because I m still envious of the one Jane Bennet wore in Pride and Prejudice BBC version Now, the practicality of having a big sweeping hooded cape in Australia has held me back from ordering It was [...]
