    One thought on “Betting on Julia”

    1. 4 - "Is that a wand in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me?" Stars!If you enjoyed Operation Saving Daniel, book one in the Melville Sisters series, you are going to love Betting on Julia, this book had a bit of everything in it to suit all tastes. Nina Croft has certainly got mad-skills when it comes to giving the reader and enjoyable romance in the PNR genre, and for me what made it so easy to immerse myself in was the fact it is set in the UK, the language used is clearly from a Brit [...]

    2. Sebastian is possessed by a demon and the demon makes a bet with Sebastian. Sebastian knows the demon isn't telling him everything, but this bet is important to him. Julia is struggling to deal with turning into a werewolf. Sebastian and Julia hit it off right away. How these two keep both of their secrets hidden is fun to watch. When Sebastian's secrets start coming to light it's interesting how he tells Julia about them. This was such a good book and I loved the end of the book and how everyth [...]

    3. I first discovered this author last year and have been very impressed with her work . A wealth of ideas and unusual story lines constantly surprise this reader and this new book is no exception. I've read quite a few shifter tales and even a few demon ones but this blend that Ms Croft has penned was a joy to read. Set in London ( I'm so bored with Seattle or New Orleans !) we meet a newly made werewolf struggling to come to terms with her new status and a warlock possessed by a demon and a chall [...]

    4. My Review:I really, really enjoyed this book. Everything about it. Bastion and his push/pull with his demon, Dante Julia who has a hate/hate relationship with her wolf that she calls Thing through most the book. I enjoyed how the author created their other sides as separate entitiesd both of them are truly at battle within against them, while hiding their existence. It created a fun story with a wonderful amount of conflict to really amp up the suspense of how it was all going to work out. Julia [...]

    5. Love where this series is going!When Julia Melville was turned into a werewolf against her will (in Croft's SAVING DANIEL, also from Covet) her life was changed forever. Months later and still struggling with her inner wolf she's trying to pretend nothing's changed. When she meets her how new neighbor, Sebastian Crane, he seems like the perfect distraction but what she doesn't know is that Sebastian is more than 200 years old and a warlock. Possessed by a demon he makes a bet that he can get a g [...]

    6. Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews. What do you get when you cross a warlock with a demon? A tormented hero with an aversion to werewolves, a penchant for BDSM and cage-fighting and the capability of bringing a woman to her knees with his handsome looks and sweet gestures.Yeah. Complex. That’s Sebastian Crane.Half warlock, half fairy, the man has the devil in him. Literally. He made a deal with a kinky evil demon and for 200 years has been possessed. He’s had enough and to end this h [...]

    7. I loved it. Sebastian/Bastian is warlock, possessed by a demon named Dante. Julia is a werewolf, not by choice. Bastian wants the demon gone. there's a bet, a seduction, and then there's love. Great characters, great storyline. I laughed and I got misty, I stressed and then I smiled as everything finally comes together. Looking forward to reading more of Ms Crofts works

    8. Just offThis was a story that was very long winded . But the short end of it all is a bet can make all the difference.

    9. While not being my usual cup of tea, which I'm beginning to see has nothing do with the author (because Nina Croft definitely knows how to bring on the action, mayhem, violence and steam) but more to do with the publisher. Covet is more of a Paranormal Lite.For those readers who would like to try the waters of the Paranormal, but not quite ready to take that full plunge into the darkside. Though most authors fail to grasp what that truly means and write more of a Contemporary Romance where one o [...]

    11. Betting on Julia, (Melville Sisters 2),  Nina Croft Review from jeannie zelos book reviewsSo after the first book, with Daniel and Lissa we’ve moved on to Daniel’s sister Julia. She’s struggling to cope as a werewolf, having been changed against her will. She’s dealing by pretending its just a once a month anomaly. It means though that currently she’s unable to have a relationship, as she’s scared of what she might do. Then her new neighbour moves in and it’s insta-lust when they [...]

    12. Thanks to a bet made two hundred years ago, Sebastian’s a warlock with a demon stuck in him.

But to gain his freedom, he has to accept one more bet with the demon.Julia’s sunshine and smiles wrapped in pink fluffiness. She’s also a werewolf who refuses to accept that she is a werewolf.

    15. **A gifted copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review**Publication Date: 08/25/2014Author: Nina CroftThis is Julie Melville’s book in Melville Sisters series.

    16. Julia and Sebastian. Now here are two people with some serious issues. Julia was attacked by a werewolf and has become one but, doesn't except her "thing" the wolf part of her. And Sebastian is part fey, part warlock and possessed by a demon. Yep you are in for a wild ride with this one. And did I mention the demon side likes a little kink so, the sex in this book is scorching hot.Well the demon makes a bet with Sebastian. If he can find a good women, get her to say I love you and mean it, in hi [...]

    17. Betting on Julia is the second book is the second book in the Melville Sister series, however, it can be read as a stand-alone. It is an entertaining and humorous read which has come to expect from the pen of Nina Croft.In this installment, readers are introduced to Julia Melville, a recently turned werewolf who ironically is a vegetarian. She is struggling to come to terms with her new nature. As a result of her transformation she was reluctant to get involved in a relationship as she did not h [...]

    18. This story had every thing going for it including an interesting premise, unique characters, little intrigue and a touch of magic. And yet I feel there just wasn't enough of all of the above. Our heroine is a nice girl but is absolute denial about the fact that she is now a werewolf. I get the premise and I can completely sympathize but it took too long for her to realize that she couldn't just wish her "condition" away which annoyed me.And our hero is a warlock that has been possessed by a demo [...]

    19. Thanks to NetGalley, I was given this ARC for my honest review. I’m always pleased when I read a free book and love it! Sometimes I’m a little nervous, worried that I won’t like what’s within the pages, but no need to fret this time. Nina Croft reeled me in and has made me an addict. Which meant I downloaded book 1 of the Melville Sisters, which is technically about the Melville brother, but that’s for another review.Julia was turned against her will into a werewolf 6 months ago, and s [...]

    20. I received an ARC of this book in place of an honest review.I have read many books by this author and I haven't found one yet that I hate. She's good getting the best out of her characters and there is always a meaning behind every book. You might have to think it over and get the best of the story to figure it out. It shouldn't take you long though.Julia Melville is a small, blonde, and bubbly woman. Next is why I liked her so much. She has a thing for everything pink. Anyone that loves pink li [...]

    21. I think the last ten books I've written reviews for could be copied and pasted and apply to all ten books including this one. I didn't finish after 25 pages. It may be an okay book but I am so sick of the same basis for every romance novels just with slightly different plot lines. Girl meets boy. She thinks he's the hottest guy she's ever seen but for stupid reason A, B, or C, she doesn't want to get involved with him. Boy meets girl. There's something special and different about this girl and n [...]

    22. BETTING ON JULIA is the second book in the Melville Sisters series. We originally meet Julia in OPERATION SAVING DANIEL (You MUST read it if you haven't yet.) She is Daniel's sister and Melissa's best friend. She was turned into a werewolf at the end of book 1 when she was kidnapped by Daniel's enemies.Julia didn't know about the paranormal until she was infected and she wants nothing to do with what she has become. Sebastian is a warlock possessed with a demon. He let the demon in during a low [...]

    23. Geesh doesn't a demon know better than to bet on love? In this novel this wonderful author gives a humorous hot romance. Humorous thanks to the character Julia-hot being the one who will steal her heart Sebastian. He is a powerful warlock possessed by a demon who after all this time bets him if he can get a woman to say I love you in a certain amount of time he will leave him for good. Sounds too good to be true right? Of course with a demon don't trust them as far as you can throw them. The one [...]

    24. *ARC from the author for an honest review*WOW does it get hot in this book. I loved this story. I started it and had a hard time putting the book down. A paranormal romance with kink. You feel the emotions throughout this story.Julia is a journalist for a magazine company and one night she was attacked by werewolves. She is learning how to survive being something that she didn't know existed. She has her best friend and brother to help her. Julia meets her new next door neighbor Sebastian and th [...]

    25. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This was a really surprising mix of magic, demons, werewolves, and bondage. Oh, and there's cage fighting too! There really was something for everyone in this paranormal romance.Julia was recently turned into a werewolf against her will. She's in the denial phase, much to her brother, the alpha's, disappointment. She just wants some normal in her life, and she assumes that her wholesome looking new neighbor (who is hot as sin) can d [...]

    26. This is an amazing paranormal read. It has it all. (Werewolves, warlock, fairy and demon.) Not only that but also has kink and BSDM involved too that will capture your attention until the very end. Sebastian lost it all 200+ years ago and has had a demon with him making him believe he's not a good person. The demon has a kink fetish and Sebastian has to go along with it. However, this demon has made a bet with Sebastian- to have Julia fall in love with him. Julia isn't herself since the attack. [...]

    27. ***ARC honest review requested coming August 25 (on release day)******ARC Honest Review Requested by Author***I am in love with Julia and BastienCan I say the fact that he was trying to win her over by wearing a pink shirt was adorable. ***SPOILERS*** so Bastien has had this demon on his back and in his mind for about 200 years due to the fact that the wolves have killed his wife and child so he has thought that all wolves are evil and should die. Then he meets Julia although he did not know she [...]

    28. What an intriguing concept! From the first page, I loved Betting on Julia and the intrigue only built with each chapter. There were so many unique ideas, and I loved the slow budding relationship between Julia and Sebastian.Nina Croft's concepts of demons, warlocks, and werewolves all had their own spin from the typical norm, which was a delight to read. However, that also did mean there was an adjustment factor were I was a bit confused at first with a few things and had to adjust. Once I did t [...]

    29. Two people - Julia and Bastien. Neither one is 'normal'. But each wants the other to view them as such. This leads to a wonderfully convoluted relationship between a werewolf who despises what she is and a warlock that shares his body with a demon. I enjoyed the relationship between the two of them. Both were hiding vital personal information. Neither quite feeling %100 comfortable with each other and not knowing why. This was a fairly quick read for me and a fun story. Julia's friend Lissa is a [...]

    30. I thought I was familiar with everything that Nina Croft had written. I sure don’t know how the first book in this series slipped under my Croft book radar. However, Betting on Julia read fine as a stand-alone since enough information is given concerning the change thrust upon Julia in Operation Saving Daniel (which is now on my TBR list). This book had it all with humor, drama, and hot romance.It is a paranormal look at what defines normal, accepting who you have become and trying to save the [...]
