#NewRelease #Review #ReleaseBlitz #Contemporary #HottiesOfHaven Revenge On The Rocks (Hotties of Haven 3) by Jenna Jacobs

When Gina Scott kicks the town bully out of her bar, Nate Grayson glimpses the fragile woman under her tough façade. Though he wants her, she’s twelve years his senior. She’ll never take him seriously, right? Wrong. That night after closing, he loses his virginity—and his heart—to her. Since they live in a small town and tongues wag, Gina insists they keep their relationship a secret. He agrees…for a spell. But six months later, Nate is ready to tie the knot.

After an abusive marriage, Gina Scott diligently protected her jaded heart for a decade. But after just one night, Nate burrows under her defenses. He might be inexperienced, but he’s all Alpha and more than capable of turning her inside out. She aches to surrender her heart and say yes to their future…but she’s keeping a dark secret—one that would destroy the happily ever after Nate deserves. She resolves to enjoy their shared pleasure for as long as it lasts while bracing for the day he walks away.

But before he can convince Gina they belong together, an evil from her past unleashes his terrible revenge. Will she ever have the chance to tell Nate that she’s been in love with him all along?

You like small and to the point novellas?  Well than this one’s for you!!!!

Welcome to the small town of Haven, where the Grayson brothers live.  The hot, hot, hot Grayson brothers!!

Most books, not all, give us the stories of a older man and younger woman or couples the same age, with this one Jenna Jacobs gives us the story of Gina, a older woman, and Nate, a hotter, younger man and until recently a virgin.

Gina is awesome!!  She is a tough, no nonsense bar owner who is fighting her feelings with Nate.  She is bound and determined that this is only going to be a fling, no matter how much it hurts her heart.

Nate is totally in love with Gina, after all he did give her his virginity and she is a great person too, who cares that she is older than him.  When Gina’s life is in danger Nate shows age is northing but a number and goes to saves her.

This is why Jacobs is one of my favorite authors, Revenge On The Rocks is a novella, however so much is packed into it!!!

Family looking out for family,  love, danger, and let’s not forget hot sex!!!!  I am sooo glad that there are more single Grayson brothers, because I can’t wait to come back to visit Haven!!

#Review #Shifter #BlackstoneMountian The Blackstone She-Bear (Blackstone Mountain book 7) by Alicia Montgomery

Amelia Walker is finally coming home to Blackstone. Few people know the real reason why she left – her heart and her bear had been broken when her mate, polar bear shifter Mason Grimes, suddenly left her after their whirlwind romance. When she finds out that Mason is back in town too, she does her best to avoid him.

Leaving Amelia was the worst mistake of Mason’s life. But, Blackstone is his salvation, the only way he can right the wrongs of the past and provide for his daughter, Cassie, after his ex-wife abandons her. He doesn’t have time for love, but when he finds out that he’s the reason Amelia is broken, he vows to make it right.

Amelia doesn’t want to risk getting her heart broken all over again and she knows that Mason has other priorities. But, she can’t resist the pull of the mating call, but she knows she must stay away, for everyone’s sake.

Will the pain of the past keep them apart or is the pull of fated mates stronger? Find out by reading this heart-wrenching paranormal romance.

Ok, we all know that Alicia Montgomery is great at writing angsty shifters, with this story she gives us heartbreak.

Amelia Walker was sure she met her mate at 21, it was like she was told all her life.  She knew as soon as she saw him he belonged to her.  Mason, knew nothing about mates, he just knew that he was drawn to  Amelia like he had never been anyone else.

When he suddenly has to leave because he’s told he’s gotten a superior officer’s family member pregnant, he has to do what’s right no matter what his heart and bear says.  Amelia leaves Blackstone after this and only returns for visits, because she knows her family will sense that she no longer herself.

Years later she moves back to town to be closer to her family again and who else has moved to town……Mason.

Mason knows that he screwed things up years ago, however since he didn’t know anything about shifters until he was grown he didn’t know anything about mate bonds until now and now he realizes not only did he screw up his life but Amelia’s as well.

Man, I thought that Luke’s story was my favorite but Amelia and Mason are giving him a run for his money.

Broken mate bonds, neglected children,  a second chance at love.  This book gives you all the feels.

#WOTR2018 #Paranormal #VCWarriors Ronan (The Protectors book 12) by Teresa Gabelman

Ronan (The Protectors #12)

Most think that newest VC Warrior, Ronan McDonald, is just a laid back cowboy. What they don’t see is the inner turmoil that only his small ranch and horses can tame. At least that was the way it had been until a witch with a beauty none could deny walked into his life.

Running has been Kira Grail’s life for as long as she can remember. It isn’t until she meets a VC Warrior that she realizes she is growing weary, but the forces chasing her will never bend.

Ronan doesn’t believe in witches or curses. What he does believe is that only he can keep Kira safe. Together they fight to bring the once powerful warlock, Orjyll, to his knees releasing the women of the Dragonfly Coven. During their perilous journey Kira vows to keep her distance, but the vampire cowboy has other plans.

You know the saying “Save a horse, ride a cowboy”?  Well, if that cowboy happens to be a VC Warrior that’s even better and with Ronan that’s who you get, a vampire warrior cowboy!!!

Mira we met in Steve’s book, Invisible Warrior, she’s Kira’s sister. To recap they’ve been running all their lives from the evil Orjyll.  He wants the Dragonfly coven dead so that his powers can return.

Mira is scrappy, she fights the pull she feels for Ronan, but come on we know in the end no one can fight  love for long.  She also learns that she is more powerful than she ever knew.

We also get to see Ronan on his home turf, his ranch riding a horse!!!  Can you say yummy!!!! Lol!!!  

While the group is on the look out for Oyjyll, the mates are training to become warriors too and boy is there drama with that and our boy Jared.

That Teresa gives us Mira and Ronan’s story along with what is going on with the other Warrior’s is why she’s one of the best.  Yes, her readers want new stories, however we also want to know what is going on with some of our beloved characters, it’s the best of both worlds.

Title: Greyson

Author: JM Walker

Model: Ryan Stacks

Photographer: Michael Anthony Downs

Cover Designer: Just Write Creations

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: July 19

Confusion. Lust. Fear. Passion.
It started the moment she passed out in my arms.
Seduction. Vile. Depraved. Desire.
She couldn’t remember her past but looked to me like I was her future.
My walls were built. My heart was cold. My emotions vacant.
After being alone for five years with only my motorcycle club at my side, she was who I had been searching for. The one I had needed all along to light up the darkness surrounding my life. Just when I thought I had her, just when I thought I could finally allow myself that happiness I didn’t think I deserved. She was ripped from my hands…

HOLY COVERS BATMAN!!!!!  Yep, Greyson’s cover is gonna grab you by the throat with how hot it is, but the man inside is what’s gonna make you stay and fall in love.

Now, we’ve met Greyson before he was in Walker’s King’s Harlots series, however you have to read those books to follow what I hope is the start of a all new series!!!

Greyson is, let me see how do I describe him???  HOT, HOT, HOT!!!!!!  ALPHA, ALPHA, ALPHA!!!   Motorcycle ridin’ , leather wearing, DOMINANT, all wrapped up into one ball of a yummy President.

Eve is a girl who doesn’t know who she is literally, not that she’s trying to find herself she has amnesia.  She was running through the woods when she passed out outside of of the Hell’s Harlem clubhouse, Greyson’s MC.

While everyone is trying to figure out who Eve really is there is also the relationship that she and Greyson are kinda but not really fighting against.  Both of them feel this heavy pull toward the other and man is it yummy.  Greyson is a man that knows what he wants, when he wants it, and forget about Eve I wanna give it to him.

Man, Walker can write some intense stuff.  Eve’s background, the holy hotness relationship of Greyson and her, the man himself is even intense.  I really don’t know who she walks around with these people in her head!!! Lol.

OMG!! And Greyson’s club brothers!!! I forgot about them!!! They sooooooooooo, need their stories told, I mean I fear for JM Walker’s sanity with all these intense hot guys in her mind!!! Lol!!

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter #TalonPack Strength Enduring (Talon Pack 8) by Carrie Ann Ryan

 In the penultimate novel of the Talon Pack series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, an Enforcer must make the ultimate choice when it comes to a human woman with a secret she doesn’t know she holds.

Kameron Brentwood has only one thing on his mind: defeating the enemy. He doesn’t have time for a human woman who sets his teeth on edge and makes his wolf prowl. It shouldn’t matter that she’s his mate because he’s always thought that mating is a distraction. Yet as soon as he gets to know the woman, he figures out that there’s no hiding from the attraction he feels for her.

Dhanielle Coburn has always been on the outside looking in when it comes to the Talon Pack, but she’s not about to let fate and the moon goddess decide her path for her. If and when she takes Kameron as a mate, it will be her choice. Yet when she suddenly finds herself in the Pack’s inner sanctum, deeper than she ever thought possible, she has to fight not only her need for the man in front of her but also a hidden secret about her family she didn’t even know she had.

When the choice is pulled from both of their hands, the two will need to learn who they are apart, and who they can be together. Because there’s more to mating than a mark and a prophecy that has come back to haunt them. And even though they may be fated, the ultimate sacrifice just might take them both in the end.

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

Yay, the Talon Pack is back!!! It is Kameron’s turn to tell his story.

Now Kameron is the pack’s Enforcer, a strong male who’s job it is to protect his Alpha and his pack and even though the mating bonds have been fixed and he knows who is mate is he feels that he can not do his job properly if his head is filled with mating lust.

Dude, is just like a human man when he thinks he knows it all and thinks that he can protect everyone for everything. LOL

So, not only is Kameron’s head filled on staying away from his mate, but it is also filled with what is coming next from their enemy the Aspen pack.

Dhani is close to the pack but not apart of it, two of her friends have mated into the pack and she has been around them since.  She feels a deep attraction to Kameron and figures that they are mates and can’t figure why he is staying away because she knows he’s attracted to her too.

I love how Ryan’s female characters are always such strong women whether they are paranormal or just plain human!!  Here’s Dhani this little human in a shifter world who just lays it out for the big bad Enforcer and leaves the ball in his court!!  It’s awesome!!

I also love Dhani’s own backstory, how she’s always felt not quite apart of something until now and the reason is not just the mating thing.

The Goddess does know a thing or two about the souls that she puts together because these guys are great people on their own, but when you put them together they become epic.

I know the ending is near for this series and just like all of Ryan’s series I will be sad to see it come, however until it does I will hold on tight because it’s gonna be a wild ride!!

Hello all!! Summer is here and with it is that lovely heat and humidity we love so much, NOT!!

I am here to let you know my Top 5 of the year so far and man I really haven’t branched out much these last few month, however that just means I know what I like or real life happened and I couldn’t read a lot.  Either way I love these ladies that I’m gonna tell you about and hopefully you will enjoy them too.  So, here they are in no particular order my Top 5.

Happy summer!!

In a world where human’s and vampires coexist, one woman with only one name and a score to settle has a hefty price on her head. She call’s herself Karma, other’s called her the Slayer of Vampires. Karma didn’t care what she was called as long as she got her revenge.

Axel Walker, also known as the Assassin, was a half-breed so his loyalty lay with the highest bidder. Who had the most money to hand him at the end of a job was the side he was on whether human or vampire. His highest pay day was yet to come and all he had to do was kill the one they call the Slayer of Vampires.

The Slayer and the Assassin become players in a tangled web of deceit. It is Karma and Axel who have to decide whether killing each other is the best plan of action or joining forces to take out those who dare make them pawns in their dangerous games.

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

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, Teresa Gabelman gives us May’s Bad girl with Karma’s Revenge.

OMG!!! If anyone knows how to write about hot Vampires it’s Teresa Gabelman.

Someone is going around town and killing vampires and now the Slayer of Vampires has a price on her head.

Sophie Deluce is looking for the vampire that killed her sister and left her stuffed next to the toilet in a public bathroom.  In doing so she has made the vampires so nervous that they put a contract out for her and assassin Axel Walker has her number, however once he she’s her and finds out her reasons he returns the money and decides to help her get her man.

I was  excepting some of Gabelman’s VC Warriors to show up, the story was so good!!!!

Sophie is one kick a** woman who needs this to get justice for her sister and no one is going to stop her.  I love how she sticks to what she wants even knowing there is a price on her head, so with the help of a half-breed assassin and her drag queen best friend she continues on her mission.

I swear Gabelman does vampires like no one else and I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Axel and Sophie.

 

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.

It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.
Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.
No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.

We are back with Brett and Evie!!  Years of marriage, three kids, and these two are still hot as heck together!!  Oh, and we get top see our very favorite sadist therapist!!!!

The past has come back in a big way to possibly screw up the life that they have built and let me just say that I felt just about all the feels with this one.

With all they went through in the previous stories to get and stay together I really thought that Walker was going to end this couple, I   mean how much more can two people take, and the ending?? Omg, please make sure you have tissues handy for that because you will need them and a strong drink when your done.

Walker has done a freaking mind f*** with this one so hold onto your hats  ladies and gents its going to be a bumpy ride.

Oh, and afterwards there is the story of Brett and Evie meeting for the first time, but told from his POV.  It’s awesome!!

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.

Luke Lennox knows he doesn’t deserve happiness. After tearing his family apart, he’s been punishing himself by living a solitary life. But when he sees Georgina Mills, the animal inside him knows: she’s his mate. His lonely heart yearns for her, but he knows that it could only end up badly for them both.

After being rescued from the clutches of an evil anti-shifter organization, Georgina Mills has finally settled in Blackstone with her young bear shifter son. She’s got a job, a home, and Grayson is finally around people like him. Now, if only the handsome, golden-eyed lion shifter who rescued them would notice her … but she’s knows she’s not exactly a catch. Besides, keeping Grayson safe is her priority for now, so her heart will have to take a backseat.

As their enemies advance on Blackstone, Luke must do everything he can to protect his home. He must also deny his growing attraction to Georgina, though he can only fight for so long before he must give in to his desires.

But Georgina is keeping a secret – one that’s so terrible and unforgivable and she doesn’t know if she can keep it under wraps for long.

When the truth is finally revealed, can Luke and Georgina’s love keep them together? Or will it destroy them, along with Blackstone?

Yay!! We finally get to my favorite mysterious shifter in the Lennox family, Luke.  Adopted into the family when he was found as a cub he is a lion shifter in a family of dragon shifters.  As a adult he is estranged from his family for the most part and lives a solitary life coming to the Lennox’s only when needed.

Georgia Mills and her shifter son Grayson were saved, from a group of people that were kidnapping and experimenting on shifters, by Luke in previous book Blackstone Wolf.

Luke and Georgia find themselves attracted to each other, but Luke doesn’t want to be around anyone not even a beautiful woman who could be his mate and her young son who needs help controlling his shifting.

Georgia knows if Luke finds out her dark secret he and everyone in Blackstone will be after her and possibly her son.

Oh my goodness, Montgomery has got writing a story about reluctant mates down pat and does a awesome job at it.

I have so been waiting for Luke’s story since book one, wanting to know what makes him tick and where he came from.  This story was so worth the wait.  

Luke and Georgia have both been through so much in their lives they are like two halves that form a whole, 

Seeing them find themselves and seeing Luke interact with Grayson is totally awesome.  A love story at it’s finest.

Plus, no Blackstone Mountain story is complete without the antishifter group making a appearance and boy do they make one in this one.

I can’t wait to see who is next to find love on Blackstone Mountain.

Teresa has done it again, this time with fairies and pixies!!!

Jade goes looking for help to save her brother from the evil pixies and she goes to the Elite Crime Unit.  Paranormals that police the paranormals and help humans when needed. Yes people that’s right pixies are bad, not the cute little Tinkerbell that we all know and love, but jerks that are bad.

She gets Drake as her keeper while they are looking for him.  

Ahhhhhh, Drake a yummy dark elf, almost as yummy as Gabelman’s VC Warrior Slade.  Ok, gotta get back on track, we’re talking elves and pixies not vampires right now. Lol!!!!

Drake and Jade are attracted to each other in a blink of an eye, seriously it happened that fast, but who could blame a girl with a elf like that!!!!

Drake protects Jade from the pixies after her brother and finds that he is totally drawn to this little human like he has never been.  Jade is dealing with paranormals for the first time, worried about her brother, and now she’s attracted to this elf, soooo she’s a little on edge.

They are sooooo funny together as well as hot!!  She is not about to let Drake run all over her, she stands up for herself and what she believes.  Drake just wants to claim and protect her, but he wants to do that on his own timeline which really gets moved up to save her.

I hope we see more of Jade and Drake in the future, it’ll be awesome to see little half elf/human babies.

#NewRelease #Shifters #Wolves The Blackstone She-Wolf (Blackstone Mountain 6) by Alicia Montgomery

Having been burned before, Kate Caldwell has always avoided relationships. That’s why when her wolf tells her that the brooding and serious Petros Thalassa is her mate, she runs in the other direction. Still, she can’t get that sexy Greek wolf out of her head, but she’ll be damned before she submits to him.

Petros Thalassa has longed for a mate of his own, someone to share his lonely life with. While the woman his wolf has chosen seems reluctant, he’s not giving up that easily. He’s searched far and wide for her, and he knows that she’s worth the chase. He’s going to make her his, to cherish and love forever.

When a threat from his past comes back, he must do what he can to protect his intended mate. But Kate is no shrinking flower; when she realizes that being with Petros is something she wants for herself, she vows to be by his side, no matter what.
Can their love survive or will danger tear them apart? Find out by downloading this sexy shifter romance now!

 

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

Are you ready for a angsty shifter, because Kate is definitely angsty!! Lol, however she is also a strong independent woman who does relationships on her own terms and has no need for the mate that she just met.

Petros  Thalasssa has left his home of Lykos and come to Blackstone because he works for the Shifter Protection Agency that now has a office there.  He also hopes to find his mate as she knows that she is not on his island home, he also was okay with leaving because of a mission that went wrong and he thinks it was his fault that his BFF was killed.

Ahhh!!! Kate is sooo funny, I love her and her gal pals and am so happy that the ladies of Blackstone finally get their turn!!  she is totally a modern woman and needs no man mate or not, however that may be because she had a past relationship that was terrible and she refuses to get caught in another one.  She is also hella smart, she is the Lennox Corps systems designer and she designs apps too.

I feel so bad for Petros because all the man wants his a family with his mate and his mate is fighting him tooth and nail about even becoming his mate.  Kate is reallllllllly making him work for it, but like I said she was hurt before and so she’s not doing it out of spite but she trying to protect herself.

So while Kate and Petros are doing their dance there is also a outside threat coming at them and boy is it a twist!!

Montgomery also does a great job writing about shifters and their mates, she also does a wonderful job creating  stimuli outside of what’s going on with the couple.

I’m so glad that there will be more of the Blackstone ladies!
