I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was far too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined that she could consume me until I more than crave her. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart—just as I’m finally putting myself together.

#NewRelease #Review #MontgomeryInk Fallen Ink (Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs) Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend.

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible.

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way

My favorite family of Inked and bearded men are back, this time though it’s a different branch of the Montgomery family tree, Carrie Ann Ryan gives us Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs!!!!

Ryan us blessed the world with the Montgomery cousins and I am one happy camper!!!
On this branch of the family tree we have Adrienne, Shephard, Thea, and Roxie. Shep has already had his story told in Ink Inspired which was the start of the whole obsession that is Montgomery Ink. Now it’s Adrienne’s turn and the start of Colorado Springs.
Maya and Austin, from the Denver Montgomery’s, are spreading their tattooed wings and opening a second tattoo studio called Montgomery Ink Too or MIT. Adrienne and Shep are part owners of it with their family as well as the managers.
Adrienne is a tattoo artist and along with her bestie Mace, her brother, and friends they have MIT’s grand opening but it’s interrupted by some stranger saying that they aren’t welcome and that they wouldn’t be there long.
Mace Knight is Adrienne’s best friend, a tattoo artist, and a weekend dad to his daughter. He is also a hot bearded silver fox!!!!!
Out of the blue his ex leaves the country and leaving him a full time father to the daughter he loves, so having to learn to become a full time father as well as starting a new job is hard on him.
Not only does Mace have a hard time with his new life, Adrienne is having a hard time also dealing with the new business and the threats to it. Adrienne and Mace lean more on each other than they already do and start something new along the way.
I adore when best friends fall in love!! They already know everything about each other but also learn so much more.
Adrienne and Mace are so good together I can’t believe that they haven’t moved beyond friends before now!!!
The steam coming off these two can be seen for miles, but there is also tenderness. The tenderness between Mace and his daughter, between Adrienne and his daughter, and the way that he realizes that they make a perfect family.
Between Adrienne and Mace falling in love and the threat to the business we learn about the other Montgomery girls and get to see how Shep and his family are doing now that he has moved back home to Colorado Springs.
I can not wait to read more about this branch of the family.

#Review #Shifter Blackstone Wolf (Blackstone Mountain Book 4) by Alicia Montgomery

Wolf shifter Nathan Caldwell likes things casual when it comes to women, keeping them at arm’s length and never letting them get too close. So, when he meets the one, the mate his animal has chosen, he gets the surprise of his life when she rejects him.

Geologist Dr. Violet Robichaux is focused on her career and science. She keeps a tight reign on her emotions and her tiger, so when her animal chooses the foul-mouthed and rude wolf as her mate, she quickly shuts that down. Her stay in Blackstone is temporary, after all, and she can’t let her tiger or her heart make her decisions. But there’s another reason she can’t stay, one that’s a matter of life and death.

When danger brings them closer together, Violet and Nathan must face the odds to help a friend in need. They risk their lives to do the right thing, but also grow closer. Can Nathan convince Violet they’re meant to be together or will she resist the growing attraction so she can leave Blackstone with her heart intact

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

And another one bites the dust!!! Lol!! I think it’s funny that Montgomery’s men always seem to find their mates when they least expect it, it’s even funnier when the mate basically say “Thanks, but no thanks”.
This is Nathan and Violet’s story.
Nathan Caldwell is the Chief Engineer at Blackstone Mines, Dr. Violet Robichaux is the new temporary geologist at Blackstone Mines.
They both get one whiff of each other and instantly know they are mates. Violet immediately says “ Nope, can’t have a mate right now sorry” and Nathan says “ she doesn’t want me, well I don’t want her either. I have so many women I don’t need a mate”.
OMG, so much funny goes on with the, wanna mate don’t wanna mate stuff that goes on with Nathan and Violet.
Both are stubborn, both really want to mate, however while Violet has a reason why and just can’t share her secrets; Nathan’s reason is just stupid male pride.
While they deal with the to mate or not to mate thing, they also stumble into shifters being kidnapped and used as lab rats.
When they both sit down and really talk together, they find out that they really do want the same thing and that is each other. I can’t wait until the next Blackstone book I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s Luke, that’s lion is gonna be a handful and needs one heck of a mate beside him.

#WOTR2018AttendingAuthor #Review #Shifter Refuge (Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary Book 2) by Teresa Gabelman

Consumed with a need for revenge, Cole Jackson becomes blind to all he should hold dear. It’s not until vengeance has been carried out that he realizes what he’s almost lost.

After being brutally attacked, Leeza Snow, has kept her head up with her pride intact. What everyone doesn’t see is the shattered heart she conceals, not only from her pack but from the man she’s destined to be with.

While time can heal scars, it will take trust to offer a promise of a happy future.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
This is book two of the Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary and it picks up directly where book one ended, however this book is all about Alpha Eric Jackson’s brother Cole.
Leeza Snow is a wolf in Eric’s pack, one who no one has really talked to since another wolf was raped and she was hurt trying to protect her. She feels everyone has stopped talking to her because she failed to protect the younger girl, what she doesn’t realize is that the pack believes she was raped also.
This pack while strong and killed the bad guy, has really done a disservice to Leeza and the young wolf who has left the pack by ignoring them.
Cole is furious because he wasn’t the one to kill the man who hurt Leeza, who btw is his mate and neither have acted on it, and doesn’t really know how to talk to Leeza so he has been avoiding her along with the rest of the pack.
Ok, first off Leeza is a strong woman. Her first thought when she saw what was happening to the younger woman wasn’t about herself but how to protect her, which got her hurt. She knew the other girl needed her afterward and with no regards for herself again stayed with the girl even though she needed to shift to heal herself.
When she realizes what the others believe of her she goes off on the Alpha and the pack, one for not asking what really happened that night and two for the way that the pack treated to woman who had something horrific happen to them.
I love when Cole realizes just how much he screwed up with Leeza. Men are such stupid creatures it makes me wonder why I love them sometimes, then I remember that they kill really big bugs for me sooooo…….
Even after learning the truth and mating he still screws up with her by trying to tell her who she can work for, but she shuts that down quickly and he learns that Leeza is not a mate that will blindly do as she’s told and follow, she’s a mate that will stand beside her man and be a partner.
Refuge show us that you don’t know what really happened with something unless you ask all parties involved, not every Alpha does everything right and can learn from others in his pack, and women are strong as heck and so don’t mess with us.

#NewRelease #Review #BadGirls The Huntress (A Bad Girl Novel) by Theresa Hissong

The Huntress

My life was changed at the age of seventeen. A man took my innocence and turned me into a killer. I spend my days hunting for men just like him. I am paid by the families of the victims to deal out the justice a court of law is too afraid to do.

My hunt for a vicious man leads me right into the heart of Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The club he works for is notorious for its illegal activities. The night I search for him, I am captured by a man even deadlier than my mark.

Jackson Pace owns Club Phoenix, and his employee will be mine once he is found. The owner holds me hostage until he can convince me my task is too deadly without his help. Our time together sets my body and heart in a spiral. His need for me matches his strength. Jackson proves himself when he brings the wrath of hell upon those who have harmed me. He will soon realize I am as deadly as he is, and I will stop at nothing to punish the man I have been hired to kill.

This is who I am…This is what I do.

I am a huntress.

The Bad Girl series is a 2018/2019 collaboration between 13 authors releasing one book a month about kiss-ass women with a penchant for being bad. This is April’s book: The Huntress by Theresa Hissong.

Morgan Rayne is known to those that have need of her as The Huntress. She gives families of abused women the vengeance and closure that they need. Yes, she gets paid but she doesn’t do it for the money, that she donates to women’s shelters every year, she does it so because no woman should be abused, because she is the only one that can make the abusers pay, and because these women that have been abused are in a since her.
Jackson Pace is the owner of the hottest club in New Orleans and is a strong player in the New Orleans underground. He has heard of the huntress but has never had the pleasure or misfortune of meeting her.
Her next case leads her to Jackson’s club, they both are looking for the same man. However Jackson wants her to let him deal with him, but she is in no way about to let that happen.
OMG!! So, Morgan is totally a woman who did not let her past weaken her. Yes, she has some issues from it but she is a strong a** woman and a strong woman needs a strong man. Jackson is a man that hates when a woman is hurt, hates that the woman that her is becoming attracted to is trying to catch a dangerous man, however he also knows how strong she is. I love that rather than try to stop her, Jackson and his men are there when she needs help and he is there when she needs someone to help her see that she doesn’t have stand alone. After all, a Alpha female needs a Alpha male by her side, a partner not someone who tries to lead her.

The women in this series are total awesome and I for one can’t wait until May’s Bad Girl!!!!!

#WOTR2018Attending #PromoTour #Review #NewRelease The Choice(Doms of Her Life:Heavenly Rising Book 1) By Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, Isabella LaPearl

Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her world even more by putting two very different men in her path and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, super-alpha by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for someone like him…but he wants her too much to walk away—even though he’s not the only man caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she’s so deep under his skin that he’s willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. But he’s got competition…

When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were in sync. But now they’re vying for the same girl, and the games get vicious—until they realize Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they both lose her for good?

First let me say, Oh My Good Gravy, I love when these three ladies minds get together!!!
This is the start of the second collection of the Doms of her Life Series. The first is Raine Falling, you don’t have to read the first to understand the second, but there is some intersecting timelines and the characters from the first do make appearances in the second. Speaking as someone who has read the first it’s not one to miss because it’s yummy goodness!!
Now onto Beck, Seth, and Heavenly.
Beck is Dr. Kenneth Beckman vascular surgeon and a sadist who is a Master at Shadows.
Seth Cooper is a New York PI in LA to help out his friends Hammer, Liam, and Raine, he is also a Dom, but isn’t a sadist.
Heavenly Young is a nursing student that volunteers at the hospital that Beck works at.
One look is all it takes for the two men to fall for the innocent Heavenly.
These ladies do a great job of bringing alpha men that make you want to both smack them and swoon at their feet to life.
Beck begins being in her life as a much needed friend and Seth by taking her out on a couple dates, however, when she tells Seth that she also has feelings for Beck the jealous butthead runs home to New York, where he spends weeks being miserable.
Once Beck thinks that Seth is out of the picture he begins to date her , then Seth comes back to town.
Heavenly can’t choose between them so the two men agree to each date her until such time as she can. What happens next is a lot of yelling at your reading device or book as the men in the story can be a**hats!!! Lol!!
Also, Heavenly has some things that she hasn’t told her men and when they finally find out they are not happy with her in the slightest.
There are also some things that Beck hasn’t discussed either that are gonna bite him in the butt when Heavenly does find out.
I was so not happy to see the end of this story and was even more upset to see that I’d have to wait until 2019!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!
Get this book you won’t regret it, better yet get the first collection and this book, you definitely won’t regret it.

Raine’s big brother shoved a glass of thick red vino in her hand. “So, did you find someone to fuck your brains out?”
She recoiled. If she gave him an equally blunt answer, would he stop this mortifying inquisition?
“Yes. It was easy.” Heavenly punctuated her lie with a bright smile.
River glowered. “Tell me Beck or Seth finally manned up.”
“He’s someone you don’t know.”
One of River’s dark brows shot up. “Where did you meet him?”
“Um…around.”
“What does that mean? A park? A bar? A grocery store? A swingers’ club?”
“Why does it matter? I found someone and it was lovely.”
He looked skeptical. “Lovely? That’s how you describe meeting a stranger, losing your clothes, and banging him?”
Heavenly bristled. “How would you describe a hookup?”
“Hot, sweaty, messy. Mind-blowing. Spine-melting. Earth-shattering.” River snorted. “Never lovely.”
“Sweaty?” She shuddered. “That sounds unpleasant. It was nice. I…tingled.”
“Tingled?” He scowled. “Did your pussy fall asleep because he couldn’t find your clit? Maybe you should have given him a map.”
She nearly choked on her wine. “I found the experience perfectly satisfying.”
“Sweetheart, you don’t know squat about satisfaction.” Raine’s brother leaned in and peered at her, eye to eye. “Here’s what I think happened: You haven’t so much as flirted with another man. You don’t understand why ‘lovely’ sex is bad because you’ve never had it. In fact, not only did you not have sex with this mysterious ‘stud,’ you haven’t offered the virginity you asked me to take to anyone else.”
“What. The fuck. Did you say?” Beck growled suddenly.
Heavenly glanced over her shoulder. Both Beck and Seth glared from across the kitchen. Oh, no.
“Get out,” Seth snapped at River, hauling ass across the room. “Now. While you can still walk.”
Dread burned her veins. She didn’t have to wonder how much they’d overheard. Obviously, it had been more than enough. Tonight had just gone from mortifying to catastrophic.
River backed away, hands raised. “Hey, just so you know, I turned her down because I like my balls where they are.”
“That’s the only reason you’re getting to keep them,” Beck insisted. “Seth told you to get the fuck out.”
“I’m leaving,” River assured, then glanced her way. “Good luck.”
Once he’d gone, silence descended. She was alone with the two men who had been tempting, confusing, and consuming her for months. They were going to demand answers.
This wouldn’t end well.
Heavenly drew in a shaky breath, startled to find both now inches away, arms crossed over their chests. Aggression rolled off them, filling the tense air. Beck drilled holes through her with narrowed eyes, set off by a scathing slash of his mouth. Seth’s seething stare was no less displeased. Unfortunately, she had nothing to offer the savage beasts except a smile full of trembling bravado.
Because the truth would change everything.

#Review #Shifter The Blackstone Bear (Blackstone Mountain 3) by Alicia Montgomery

Ben Walker’s bear is out of control and he can’t let anyone know, not even his family and closest friends. The darkness inside is threatening to consume him, but when he meets Penny, he knows she’s the one: his mate, the one who can calm his bear. And for once in his life, he feels he has a bright future ahead.

Even though she’s human, Blackstone has become a sanctuary for Penny Bennet. It’s the place where she could start over and escape the scorn of the people from her past. When Ben suddenly declares she’s the one his bear chose, she’s not sure if she believes him. After all, why would he want to be with the girl from the wrong side of the tracks?

When an unknown threat puts his family in danger, Ben must take the lead to protect everyone and everything he holds dear. But, can he also convince Penny she’s his forever mate, before it’s too late?

Holy bearded brooding bear!!!
Ben is the Lennox’s cousin, he is a bear shifter, and works at the mines with his cousins.
I love a brooding bearded man and that he is a bear shifter just makes it all the more awesome.
Penny is a new waitress at the bar in town called The Den. She had moved back into the area to take care of her dying dad and now that he has passed she has to stay until she builds her funds back up before she can return to Texas. She is a shy girl and has thought that Ben was hot since they bumped into each of their at his cousin’s bachelor party at the bar, but he has no clue she’s around. Until he gets a whiff of her, then he and his bear notice her as their mate.
In this story Montgomery gives us a man who is sure that his other side is a monster and a woman that can calm that monster, that man taking the time to woo that woman (not just take her and mate her), another Lennox wedding, and some crazy a** relatives.
I love Montgomery’s shifters, she always leaves me wanting more.

#NewRelease #ReleaseBlitz #Contemporary More Than Love You (More than Words book 3) by Shayla Black


I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Eternal Mourning (Talon Pack #7) by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the seventh book of the Talon Pack series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a Healer is forced to come to grips with the idea that he can’t save everyone…including the woman he loves.

Walker Brentwood vowed to the moon goddess that he’d protect his Pack and Heal with every last ounce of his power. He’s watched his siblings and cousin battle the worst circumstances to find love and is now afraid that the one woman who could be his might not have much time left. The rules of mating have changed, and Walker will do what he has to in order to protect the bonds that have eluded him for so long.

Aimee Reagan knows there’s something wrong with her. She’s known since the first time she found out shifters were real and magic existed. When the Talon Pack’s enemy sets his sights on her, her battle to survive becomes even harder.

Walker and Aimee must turn to each other when the powers around them change and the paths that had been laid before them are no longer clear. But when their passion threatens a curse far older than anyone dreamed, they’ll only have one chance to save something worth more than a mating bond. Their future.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

I swear this poor pack can’t catch a break they always are fighting against something, whether it be tyranny in their own pack, anti shifter groups, and now a power hungry alpha of another pack.
The fighting however is what makes them strong and the fighting with a mate at their side has made that mated pair even stronger, this time it’s the Healer and the human fight side by side.
Walker is the Talon pack’s healer and since the pack’s magic has made the mating bonds all wonky, he has made it his mission to try and find a way to fix it.
Aimee is a human that had no clue that shifters excited until the unveiling and that her friend was one until she shifter in front of her eyes. These two are thrown together because her friend has mated into his family, but they are also attracted to each other.
Walker doesn’t know if his attracted to her because she could be a possible mate or because he is. For Aimee the attraction is real, but since she is dying, and no one can figure out why, she is trying to stay away.
Can I just say, Wow! Know what all this pack has gone through and what they are going through in this book is crazy!!!!
Aimee is one hella of a strong woman to be at death’s door and still fight the way she is and Walker is with her every step of the way. I love how he is trying to find a way to save her even though the human’s can’t find out what is wrong with her and still trying to find a way to correct the wonky mating bonds.
When these guys finally stop fighting their attraction and come together it’s magic, maybe even healing too.
Ryan has done a awesome job writing a nail biting shifter story full of action and love once again and I can’t wait for the the story from the Talon Pack.

Forbidden Temptation (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #4 by [Gabelman, Teresa]

Taking on new recruits has always been tricky business for Dell Farris, head protector of the Lee County Wolves. Add in the knowledge that his mate is one of them makes things even more complicated. He knows she has demons to fight, but he’s determined to take charge of that battle. Nothing and no one will ever hurt her again.

Roslyn “Ross” Starr has secrets that she plans to take to the grave. But fearing putting innocents in danger, she makes a decision that could end everything. In a split second, Ross’s life changes, and all because of a handsome shifter who makes her want to try for the life she deserves.

As Dell unlocks the secrets of Roslyn’s past it is clear to all but him that she is a forbidden temptation.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Ross is a girl with a past, one so tragic that she would rather be gone from this Earth than put her new pack in any danger that may come.
Dell is……. Well Dell is that strong and silent male and it’s always the quiet ones that you have to watch out for and I mean that in such a delicious way.
Dell can fight the pull of Roslyn as his mate no more, especially now that he knows how much pain she is hiding. There is lots going on in this book; change for the pack, a couple coming together, a horrible past coming back, Dell kicking a$$, and Leda leaving.
I love that we get to see all of our favorite couples from the Lee County Pack. Not only that, we get to hear a glimpse of our favorite funny VC Warrior and Leda’s bestie Steve.
I also am on pins and needles to see how Leda is going to deal with who comes after her!!
I know, I know my review is so vague, but you gotta read it to find out I can’t give all of Gabelman’s secrets away!!!
