When magic strikes and Atlanta goes to pieces, it’s a job for Kate Daniels…
Drafted into working for the Order of Merciful Aid, mercenary Kate Daniels has more paranormal problems than she knows what to do with these days. And in Atlanta, where magic comes and goes like the tide, that’s saying a lot.
But when Kate's werewolf friend Derek is discovered nearly dead, she must confront her greatest challenge yet. As her investigation leads her to the Midnight Games—an invitation only, no holds barred, ultimate preternatural fighting tournament—she and Curran, the Lord of the Beasts, uncover a dark plot that may forever alter the face of Atlanta's shapeshifting community…
Rating: 4 Stars - Loved It

Thoughts: I was in need of my Curran fix and I got just that. If read this book then I think you all know what certain scene I am talking about. I found how the packs mate interesting and fun. The Midnight games were crazy good. Really liking Andrea and Kates friendship. Learning more about Kate and even Jim was good. The ending was my 2nd favorite part of the book. Can not tell you the first do not want to spoil anything.
I could not remember if I read book 2 as it has been awhile. The Midnight Games sounded interesting so went with Magic Strikes #3. I was not lost at all and did not feel like I missed anything huge. As I enjoyed Kate and a few of the secondary characters and Andrea and Raphael I feel like they were in the previous book. Easy for me to get a feel what is going on but I am sure it would of been nice to see how they got to where they are now.

Sunday Post: Small break or not

Sunday Post is a weekly recap hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer

Hi everyone. Hope all is good. We finished our inside Spring Projects. Got some of the rooms cleaned and back together. Still have 3 rooms to get cleaned and we are just exhausted and dragging ass to get them done. Our workers for inside the house finished up last Saturday and workers for our big outside project started last Monday. 
We are so excited we are finally getting work done on our backyard patio. Hopefully will be done by Tuesday.

Like I said hubby and I are exhausted from the work getting done on our house. Nothing happened on the blog last few weeks. I do not know at the moment if I need a small break or not from blogging. After finishing up our patio we will have some stuff to do back there. So I think right now I am taking blogging and real life one day at a time.
