Tall, Dark Lonely is book one in R.L Mathewson s Pyte Sentinel series I loved this author s Neighbors from Hell series and have been meaning to give this series a go I am so glad that I took the plunge While this is definitely not an overly complicated paranormal world that Ms Mathewson has created, for me the romance between the hero and heroine was the main focus of the book and not the whole paranormal aspect It s a story about a lonely pyte who finally finds his reason for existence I loved [...]
First things first, I LOVE CHRIS Like seriously, fuck me boy Pulled an all nighter for this, so damn worth it DTHE BOOK WAS AH MAZING, If you haven t read it yet please do so asap The humor, the story, the drama and the sex, everything was EPIC Ok, So here goesBest prologue I ve ever read, Appart from Walking DisasterHahaha, I find it absolutely adorable how Ephraim burps after he feeds on excessive blood PLoved him to bits and bits Such a sweet man, fuck I loved Madison character, Absolutely br [...]
Warning This book will make you squirm, laugh, vomit, gasp, swoon, and bang your head on hard objects.3.5 stars A campy, nutty, off the wall blood lite vampire romance not recommended for the serious PNR lovers or those with delicate sensibilities I almost DNFd this one a half dozen times, but something about Ephraim and the weirdness of the story kept me reading It was full of absurd plotting, a motley crew of nutty characters, all mixed with some off the wall world building WTFery on nearly ev [...]
Where do I begin I really enjoyed the first part of the novel I could identify with the heroine young woman abandoned by her mother has to take care of her younger siblings while mom is screwing around The whole family ends up moving in with the grandmother, who runs a boarding house The young heroine, Madison, is determined not to be anything like her mother She s hard working, chaste, and has a hard time trusting.Things quickly go off the rails as far as plot and character Madison degenerates [...]
It s time to give up, this isn t going to get any better and even if it did, I m so over the female mc Someone said this was like sexed up Twilight, and it sorta is, but Twilight did it better That s right, I said Twilight did it better Twilight didn t annoy me and there was the excuse of it being a high school setting Why I m kicking this book to the curb the female mc It s all her fault She is one contrary and whinging bitch Yeah, it sucks her mom is an irresponsible whore fact , and Madison f [...]
Loved every page of this book and didn t want it to end I am so happy I decided to read a paranormal romance It has gotten me back on the horse again R.L Mattewson is an excellent author and I would recommend this book as well as her others to everyone.
3.5 starsRe read via audibleI read this book awhile ago and remember liking it Upon this re read, I still liked it overall but it definately was not perfect I enjoyed the MCs although the heroine did get annoying at times and the Hero could be too high handed and felt there was strong chemistry but I am not sure why they loved each other They really did not get to know each other and seemed to go from her being scared of him, to jumping into bed Overall, this book had A LOT going on There was wo [...]
I loved it A light paranormal with a heavy dose of smexings, what not to love right Ephraim just about melted me to puddles He was such a sweet, sweet Pyte Pytes are like vampires, they drink blood but they can walk in the daylight unlike the vampires So, I would say that every vampire wanna be just like Ephraim I will definitely check out his son s, Chris book next I felt all kinds of wrong for crushing on Chris He was just sixteen here but he was very hilarious and I hope he will be a bit olde [...]
At 25% Stopping for now For some reason, the story and writing feel choppy, scattered and awkward The traumatic background of the hero and heroine call for emotion IMO, but the author injects weird humor into all of the potentially emotional moments, and it just isn t working for me right now I may try again though, since most of my GR friends loved this.
I loved the Neighbors from Hell series, but this just didn t work for me S It was interesting enough, but I didn t get caught in the story, or the main characters I hope I ll read the other 2 books sometime later, maybe they ll be better.
Nah, didn t enjoy this one.The heroine was such an inconsistent character She started out so strong and likeable, but that didn t last long In the end, I was just annoyed by her immaturity and stubbornness.I liked the hero throughout most of the book, until he view spoiler forcefully made her a vampire Pyte because he nicked Really In a totally safe situation And her reaction I hate you, jerk , I ll kick your ass, jerk and throwing socks at him Alrighty hide spoiler I hated Candy Not because she [...]
3 3 4 Pytes are super cool Stars I enjoyed this story very much The prologue was very gripping It had me very curious about Ephraim from the beginning This was a much complete story than I thought it would be Both main characters, Ephraim and Madison were both good characters that I enjoyed meeting and I was happy to read their story.The first part half of the book was mostly relationship building between Ephraim and Madison You were also introduced to Madison s family the immediate side charac [...]
I had it at 3 stars and as I kept on reading it, but it just kept on getting and senseless until it hits its absolut low There is something about a virgin turned nympho She is also sooo modest it s almost patronizing To fix that the author gives you a list of ridiculous things that really make this angel less than perfect Except that list is composed of things like cheating while playing candyland rolling my eyes here The male swoops in on a metaphorical white horse i.e check book in modern da [...]
What a surprise this book was Just reading the synopsis had me hooked Tall, Dark Lonely is one of the best PNR stories I ve read in a while and Ephraim Ephraim Madison For as long as you want me, Madison, I am your man Madison has been in charge of taking care of her siblings for most of her life But now, she s finally got a good job and is ready to give her brother and sister a better life Then their mother shows back up and a change of plans has them moving to New Hampshire where they plan to [...]
Very enjoyable, very different PNR I had one or two issues with the storyline, but other than that this is well written and quite unique Ephraimwow, my goodness, did I love him or what Yeah, I LOVED himg time His tragic past made me hurt so bad for him, but now he has hope in this rag tag family that invades his space at the boarding house he lives in I liked Madison ALOT She was protective, strong, quirky, funny and she had no hope at all when it came to her attraction for Ephraim How she tries [...]
I love Madison Ephraim I absolutely enjoy this book Although this started harsh, brutal, cruel but I m happy it turns out as entertaining, sizzling hot, heart melting sweet I love how their family bond together even if they are not related by blood I like Chris, Joshua and the drama queen Jill I also like the Grandma I love the story telling, I love the uniqueness of the plot, kinda new from the vampire craze, but above all I just like how the author mold every character to have endearing qualit [...]
TALL,DARK AND LONELY was not only surprising but a very different read from Mathewson s usual plot line.I found the characters to be light and humorous adding up to the story in there own unique way hence fitting into the plot seemlesly With that being said,initially when I started out I found the lead character,Ephraim, pyte resembed Stephanie Meyer s Edward Cullen, in her debt novel Twilight to a certain extent.Now I m not saying Ephraim and Edward are Twinies.I mean other than the fact that t [...]
This book actually caught me by surprise The fact that it was a free download on Barnes Noble didn t hurt either However, since I have to base all my reviews on honesty, the cost of a book won t sway me either way.This story begins in early 1800 s London Ephraim, the story s hero, who also happens to be a 10 year old boy, is transforming into a vampire After a month in a coma, Ephraim now looks like a fully grown man of 25 His family is stunned into disbelief only adding to the chaos and confusi [...]
Not her best work, there were things that grossed me out, like the mother and what she made the youngest daughter do, then even the whole hero blood menses thingy I also didn t feel the world building was explained properly, he says I am Pyte and there is that no explanation when in the ends some psycho decides it is time for a history lesson Chris the sixteen year old was good.The heroine spent most of time getting angry at the hero for no good reason IMO It ended up being an average read.
Hmmm, not really what I was expecting.I usually love anything PNR, but for me, this didn t have the feel of a great PNR The paranormal element wasn t really explained, and was still unwinding in the final pages of the book And there didn t seem to be a strong storyline There were lots of little tangents that go off for seemingly no purpose at all view spoiler Like the whole hymen thing Seriously There s a whole storyline about her freaking hymen WTF was that Not only did it gross me out, but it [...]
3 1 2 Bloodlust Stars Tall, Dark Lonely is the story of a young woman named Madison who has raised her two younger siblings most of her life, while her mother runs off with her newest low life boyfriend leaving Madison to put herself through college while simultaneously having to take care of two kids However, when Madison s mom comes back demanding that they move to New Hampshire Madison doesn t have much of a say, and instead of leaving her siblings in the neglectful care of their mother, she [...]
5 Amazing Stars I love this book R.L is the master at making cry and then laugh at the same damn time I love it The second thing, Madison, is that I am head over heels in love with you When this is all over and Chris is better, be prepared to have the spanking of a lifetime for not listening to me and scaring the hell out of me His expression softened Because I absolutely love and adore you, Madison I love you too, Ephraim So much He took her mouth in a searing kiss.
Ugh as much as I liked the first one I read by this author, Playing for Keeps, I thought for sure i d enjoy Tall, Dark Lonely, considering it s paranormal and all Yeah not so much.Scatter brained and srsly lacking in focus, I m guessing this was her first attempt at writing Anyway, I actually made it about 53% of the way in because I srsly loved the hero and to a lesser extent the heroine But when the author went a total different direction for like the third time in the story I threw in the tow [...]
3It was great until it wasn tStars If you bled while I was inside you, while I m already out control sic I would probably fuck you until you were drained properly Synopsis A paranormal romance about a quasi vampire who falls in love with his new neighbour, Madison, a modern day virgin who has been raising her younger siblings, until she moves in to her grandmother s boarding house The best bits Mathewson started this off with an AMAZING prologue One of the best I ve ever read She has created a v [...]
re read LOVED IT thats me singing with joy I have always loved R.L but held back on this series and then I decided that I was finally going to dig in and start this series And boy am I kicking myself for waiting so long to read this book R.L Mathewson has a way with words that pulls you in and holds you till the last word of her books and this book is no exception I could not put this book down I read till the words blurred together with exhaustion from staying up so late to read this book I ign [...]
Despite the typos, I love, love loved it I ve found that typos seems to plague ebooks despite fan freaking tastic writing I will be reviewing this for my blog Good stuff I stayed away so long because the cover looks like a textbook, and being a nurse, if I never saw a textbook again for the rest of my life, it d be too soon But I think ther is a method to this author s madness, because you have zero preconceived notions The plain cover bothers me less than th inaccurate ones I could name a few.
Hmm, this was good in places but it was a bit, well, daft I know that s a ridiculous thing to say about a pnr, but that s me.I loved the alpha, protective, hot guy vibe, the smut and the dirty talk Wasn t so keen on the blood exchanging deets bleugh , the child custody drama and the dreadful editing This is really nowhere near the standard of the Neighbours from Hell series.Complete story but part of a series I don t fancy any for now but I might try another at some point.
I absolutely LOVED it A hot paranormal romance with a healthy dose of humour and a hilarious bunch of secondary characters.
This was pretty good, definitely an interesting story and the characters were well written.
