What I’m reading ~ Mesmerized ~ Lauren Dane

This is the second book in the Phantom Corps series.


Like a lot of others, Andrei was recruited to the Phantom Corps sitting in lock up. He trained hard and worked his way from an angry teenager looking for fights to be third in command of the elite military unit. But when a mission takes him back to his home world he can’t resist the trip to see what was left of his family, the ragtag group of survivors making in the harsh environment. What he hadn’t counted on was that Piper was still there, and still stirred the same feelings in him he’d left behind. Can he do his job, and keep her safe? What is she insists on staying with him?


What did I think? I liked it. Piper is tough, she can handle whatever’s thrown her way and makes sure that Andrei knows it. Not willing to let him rule her, and determined to live her life to the fullest, she does her best to take care of him at the same time.

What did I think? I enjoyed it. I had a hard time putting it down. The characters were dynamic and likable. I cheered when they got things right and wanted to cry when they were hurting.

What I’m reading ~ Insatiable ~ Lauren Dane

Insatiable is the first book in the Phantom Corps series


Daniel is the lowborn leader of the Phantom Corps, an elite group of soldiers working for the Federation Military.

Carina is the daughter of  the leader of the Imperial Verses. Raised as a princess in a house filled with danger and intrigue she learned very young to hide her true self. Now, in order to aid her people, she needs to escape.

When the person sent to help her escape is Daniel, Carina experiences many things she’s never before encountered. But can she handle it all? Can she deal with the changes her life will go through now?

What did I think?  I enjoyed it. The story kept me engrossed and Daniel and Carina were people you came to like. They had realistic, multi-dimensional personalities and personal histories that effected how they related to each other. Personally I prefer the Pride series, but this was good too.
