#NewRelease #Review #YA #NewSeries From Breath And Ruin (Elements of Five Book 1) Carrie Ann Ryan

In her YA debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan dives into a world with magic and sacrifice with the Elements of Five.

Five hundred years ago, the Maison Realm was shattered, divided into warring kingdoms of elemental Wielders with fate and truth shadowed and uncertain. Now, factions of both the light and dark venture into the human realm in search of the prophesied Spirit Priestess who is said to Wield the Elements of Five and bring the two fractured kingdoms together.

Lyric has no idea that there’s a realm outside the human one she lives in. When fate and circumstances are pulled from her hands after an accident, and she finds out that nothing is as it seems.

There is a war surrounding her and when Lyric realizes that they are searching for her, she must rely on those she once trusted: a boy who isn’t who she thought, and a new realm of warriors who have come to protect her as she trains.

For the darkness is coming, and the Queen of Obscurite wants to ensure that the King of Lumiere can’t get his hands on Lyric. And the only way to ensure that is if Lyric herself is no more … no matter the cost to prophecy.

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

From one of my favorite contemporary and paranormal authors comes a new series and it’s YA.  Carrie Ann Ryan leads us into a world of elemental magic, a world looking for it’s savior in the form of the Spirit Priestess.

Lyric, love that name btw, is a recent high school graduate trying to figure out her path in the world.  She knows she’s going to college, but for what?  Her friends  Braelynn and Emory know what they want to do in life, but not her she is just a ordinary bisexual girl from Colorado.  Well ordinary but the dreams she’s been having since she was a kid.

Rhodes is the hot dude from down the road, along with his sister Rosamond they show Lyric that the world is not what it seems.

Ok if you have seen the cartoon or read the Manga The Last Air Bender you can kinda get the feel of the realm of Maison.  There are people that can use the four elements or more than one of them.  There is also a caste system with Queens, Kings, Lords, Ladies, and the lower class.

Ryan has done a excellent job bringing this new world of hers to life, it’s totally different for her but not really if that makes any sense at all.  The characters, other than having magic, are real as well as the Maison Realm.

It’s exciting to see Lyric, who thinks she’s nothing special just a average girl, find new things about herself and how strong she really is.

Couple things though, Emory is also Lyric’s ex as well as her friend, however, she seems like a real witch to me.  She’s not nice at all and seems to cause trouble and fights with everyone.  Two, I don’t think that Rhodes is what he seems to be besides a hot dude that show Lyric that humans are not alone and magic is real.  Oh, Oh, Oh and there is another guy Easton.  He’s suppose to be one of the bad guys but I get the feeling that there is more than just the attractiveness of a bad boy about him.

I can not wait until book 2, to find out more about this world and to see what kind of path that Lyric takes to become the person that she is meant to be.

#WOTR19 #Review – Demon’s Destiny (Guardians book 4) by Valerie Twombly


Demon's Destiny (Guardians Book 4)

Famed for his cocky attitude and womanizing lifestyle, Baal likes to make his own rules. But being the most powerful demon in Hades’ army comes with a steep price. Namely, a command to mate with the human he is bound to protect. When the lord of the Underworld reveals the female’s true identity, Baal vows he will never love her. Even though she may destroy him, he soon discovers it’s a promise he might not be able to keep.

When her sibling goes missing, Ranata finds herself at the mercy of those who intend to make her Hell’s next sacrifice. With the world embraced in the wrath of a power-hungry demigod, and a sister now in his clutches, she discovers she is not fully human and now must face the biggest challenge of her life. Mating a demon is an insane idea, but she will do anything to save her sister. Falling in love with him might be even crazier.

I received this book from an honest review.

This was my first book of Valarie Twombly’s.  Yes it is the forth book in the series and I was able to keep up and do not feel like I was missing something. Although like with any other series I’m sure there are small things I do not know of the characters has I read the series from book one.

Ranata was a waitress serving drinks in a dive bar. She was on a mission to find her sister when she found herself as a sacrifice . Man is this when her world was tipped on its axes. She finds herself matted to a demon and finds out who her mother is and in turn who she is.

Baal is Hades right hand demon. After having his heart torn out by the one he loved. He swears off loving another but when fates step in and give him a feisty mate can he protect his heart.

The twist and turns were great. I enjoyed this story and I would like to know more about these guys.

#Review – It seemed like a good idea at the time – by Kylie Scott

It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete had been left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

I purchased the audio book.

This is a second chance kind a sort of with a bit of forbidden love story. You see Adele had a best friend, Pete, when she was younger. Even though he was 15 years older than her she had a huge crush on him. When she turned 18 she decided to let him know how she felt. Well let’s just say it didn’t go as she planned quite the opposite actually. With a broken heart she decided to leave town.

Now she has to return home for her dads wedding and face Pete. What a big surprise when she finds out she is staying with Pete for the week. Pete’s head is all over the place does he want her to stay see where things go or is he scared of his feelings.

I wasn’t sure I would like Adele but to see her as a kid in the flash back and to see her as an adult was a great transformation. I loved her spunk, sass, and tell it like it is. She put Pete in his place a few times. Pete and Adele relationship was passionate at times and then Pete would put on the breaks. Will these two be able to make it work or will Adele give up and leave again?

I enjoyed listening to this story. Andi Arndt did a good job with the narration and the different voices of each character. Andi was able to keep me in the story and I did not want to pause it.

#WOTR19 #Review – Nicole (The Mate Series #1) by Teresa Gabelman

Nicole (The Mate Series) Book #1

Nicole Callahan, mate to fierce and brooding VC Warrior Damon DeMasters, has been trying to find her place in his world. Without a doubt, it’s been interesting, but she believes there’s a lot more she can offer the children she spent so much of her human life fighting for.

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

How can Teresa make the mates of the VC Warriors live up to the men? Well let me tell you she did it. These fierce women are strong willed, bad ass, and do not need a warrior at her back every second of the day to save her.  These women can handle their own but it is nice to have a warrior at their side.

Nicole loves Damon but has a feeling she is losing herself. She misses her work and believes she can and must help the children in the foster system. She loved doing her job and feels there is a need not only to help the kids but to satisfy her own calling.

The mates of the warriors realize they are not being treated as equal as the guys because they are females and the warriors have it ingrained in them that they are to protect the women. The women band together and decide to take matters into their own hands. They agree to help Nicole at the agency and also better themselves in becoming fierce warriors they know they can be without the guys help.

These women are AMAZING. They are strong and will not back down or give up no matter what is thrown at them or who throws them.  OH and believe me they have their time with one on one combat on the mats and in the field.  Nicole and the others can hold their own. Now the only question is will the warriors let them continue their crusade or will the end it? We can already see there are some warriors that over time are going to stand by their women and others that may draw a line that will be too hard to come back from.

I absolutely love these women as much if not a little bit more than the warriors.  I mean really who doesn’t love a woman that can kick some butt and take names later. I am so excited for this series and see each Warriorette become stronger and do as good a job or better than the Cock Club.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Bantamweight (Hallow Bothers Series book 5) By Tricia Andersen

Bantamweight (Hallow Brothers Book 5)

Abraham Hallow would do just about anything to get out from under his oldest brother, Josiah’s, thumb. That includes performing as the Luchador in the local semi-professional wrestling circuit. He gets more than he bargained for when he hooks up with a woman with multicolored hair. The draw to her is undeniable. He wakes up the following morning with the ancient mark of his ancestors, mating him to the mystery woman he met the night before.
It was a simple mission—find the infamous Hallow brothers, kill them, and bring back the amulet. Kai’s plans get derailed after one night of hot, crazy sex with a mask wrestler. When she finds out the wrestler was none other than Abraham Hallow, the youngest of the Hallow brothers, she is exiled from the mermaid kingdom. Yet the orders from her king still stand. Can she deny her ever-growing love for Abraham, or will she fulfill her duties of killing him?

Goodreads

Amazon

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

OH my Abe here is another Hallow to love and the next one to feel the pull. Abe is the baby. I’m telling you at 21 years old he has had enough of all the baby of the family jabs. They taunt him, baby him, keep things from him and refuse to let him fight like the other brothers.So if they won’t let him fight he will go out on his own and keep that a secret from his family. If they cannot keep things from him he will keep things from them.

Kai has been owned all her life and she is darn tired of it. She is ordered to find the Hollow brothers kill them and return the Heka and amulet to her boss.  But when she is drawn to the masked fighter she soon realizes how that one time changed her life.

Kia is finally free and does not want to be owned by anyone. In her mind the mating mark means she is no longer free but now owned by Abe. She fights the mating pull.  It is up to Abe to show Kia what it means to be a part of a family and that he just wants to take care of her and protect her not own her. He started to show her that when he bought something to help her even though he caught hell from his brothers.

We learned so much more in this book.  There are so many other beings that we are being introduced to in this series. WOW the plot that carries over threw all these books keeps getting better and better. We are aware of more enemies and allies. I’m so interested in knowing more about Zeke. I’m thinking he may be my wolf.

#WOTR19 #Review – Corner (Hallow Brothers Series book 4) by Tricia Andersen


Josiah Hallow carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. Literally. Between keeping his family safe as the head of the Hallows, training his six younger brothers for their individual turns in the MMA cage, and guarding his mother’s amulet from the creatures who want to use it to take control of the world, his sanity is about to break.

Mating with the pure Sarah Merit, an overly-religious school teacher whose body makes every fiber of Josiah’s being stand at attention, could finally push him over the edge. Unfortunately, despite the all-consuming sex that blazes between the pair, it isn’t enough to convince Sarah to live with him so he can protect her, as well.

When Josiah learns the secret Sarah is keeping from him, he makes a deal with the pair of vampires who run the MMA promotion the family fights for in an attempt to save her. But will he be able to save her again when Sarah is kidnapped and taken to Josiah’s grandfather, Atticus, the vicious alpha of a pack of werewolves in Maine? And what will Sarah do when she finds out the sexy corner of the Hallow Brothers is a werewolf, too?

I love this series and I’m only four books in this means I only have three more until it is complete. 🙁  I cannot get enough of these alpha shifters.

Joseph is the eldest and in charge of protecting the entire family after his dad died. He does not have time to do anything but coach his brothers and protect his family. Then he finds his mate at his aunts funeral who is a good girl, a school teacher and church goer.

Sarah is drawn to one of her friends nephew whom they called Satan’s spawn. He tempts her to do things that is against everything she believes in. She is tough and keeps Sam on his toes.

While these two are trying to figure things out Joe tosses one more thing in the fire when he makes a deal with the vampires. Then add in their grandfather who is determined to bring them home especially Joe. They are still trying to figure out this heka amulet vampire thing. Joe has a lot of things resting on his shoulders.

I loved how the brothers pulled together to get things done. Even the mates pitched in even though they caught heck for it. I also like how there is the main story line about the brother and then a story line that continues through the entire series that only becomes more complex when more characters are introduced. I need to find out what is next. Oh my there are only three brothers left.

#WOTR19 #Review – Heavyweight (Hallow Brothers Series book 3) by: Tricia Andersen

Heavyweight

 

Samuel Hallow is desperately in love. However, he knows his family won’t condone his relationship with his boyfriend, Henry. The brothers mate for life and neither man has had the mystical tattoo appear that binds them to the one chosen for them.

Delilah, Henry’s lifelong friend, comes to town and Samuel is consumed with unexplained lust. He and Henry both sleep with her and the tattoo appears on all three of them, marking the trio as mates for eternity. He nearly loses the others when he confesses his true nature – that he, like his six brothers, are werewolves. Although Delilah and Henry are angry and obsessed with their careers, they can’t stay out of his bed.

Can he protect his lovers from the vampires who hunt them, who want to use them to get possession of Momma Hallow’s ancient amulet? And will the Hallow Brothers stand united when they discover that Henry, the man Samuel loves, embodies an ancient evil magic, hell bent on conquering the world?

 

Goodreads

Amazon

I absolutely fell in love with Samuel. He is so conflicted between who he is and how he believes everyone thinks or expects him to be. Samuel knows who he wants his mate to be but it just does not seem like the fates agree.

Samuel is a big bad alpha MMA fighter that is keeping a big secret from his family. HE is afraid of how they will react or what they will think of him if they find out about Henry. Sam goes to see Henry and finds Henry’s friend Delilah there. There is some major pull between Sam and Delilah be cannot control. Lets just say after the one night Sam, Henry and Delilah are together it all becomes clear why Sam and Henry were never mated. It’s because Sam has two mates not one.

Sam has to train for his fight but with Henry and Delilah trying to come to grips with the whole matting/warewolf thing it makes it hard to concentrate. Now Sam and his brothers have a new set of problems when vampires come into town to steal Momma Hallow amulet.

The twist this book takes had me needing more reading more. We see how Sam handles coming out to his family and the families reactions. We have so much more going on with the vampires showing up and all the havoc they create all for an amulet. Oh we get a peak at Josiah and his new mate. Eeep I cannot wait! The fates are knocking these guys out one by one. I love it and so excited to meet each of their mates.

And when a new, murderous threat strikes close to home, will the two of them survive?

Goodreads

Amazon

I purchased this book.

Oh my land these MMA shifters are gaining my interest one by one. I still have not figured out out which one is my favorite but man they are all so amazing.

Micah is the second oldest of the seven, momma’s boy and a virgin. He is also the one that doesn’t fight  he has an 0-5 record, cannot see without his glasses and get debilitating migraines. He is also the guys manager. He decides to go with the guys to the club to set up some fights for his brothers when a pull like no other sets him in search  of something. He finds himself in a strip club where he sees the beautiful Eve. He scores a night with her only to find he is leaving the hotel with more tattoos than he came with.

Eve is a mess she is owned by her boss, he is a stripper and drug addict because of her boss. After her night with Micah she finds she has been tattooed one of the biggest NO NO’s by her boss and finds herself looking down the barrel of a gun. Lucky for Eva Micah comes looking for her and makes a deal to save her life by getting in the ring.

Things get crazy for a while between Micah’s blinding migraines, Eves drug addiction and Micah getting back in the ring. I love that Micah is patient with Eve but at the same time she needed to hear what Samuel and Meg had to say to her. Lets face it she was bound to have issues with the family. Especially one that is as close as they are. They want to protect Micah from the heartache that a stripper drug addict could bring Micah. Eve has never had a loving family but the Hallow’s are showing her what it really means to be a family. Eve just hopes Micah doesn’t leaver her like everyone else in her life has.

I’m becoming addicted to these Hallow boys. I cannot wait for Samuel it seems he has a big secret himself.

#WOTR19 #Review Ashes: Book One in the River Ash Pack by Mary Martel

Ashes: Book One in the River Ash Pack

Cordelia has never known anything but the safety of her fathers guarded compound where she’s lived her entire life. A life that, as the alphas daughter, has always been a privileged one, albeit an incredibly sheltered one.
Until one night, life as she knows it, is flipped entirely upside down when she’s promised to another alpha in order to buy safety for her father’s pack. This doesn’t exactly sit well for Cordelia seeing as she has different plans for her life, even if she doesn’t know what those plans are just yet. Out of fear of what she doesn’t want her life to become, she does the unthinkable and tells her father the one thing he’ll never tolerate from anyone in his pack, especially not his daughter. She tells him no.
As a result, Cordelia learns just what kind of depraved man and alpha her father is and is left a broken, bleeding mess because of it.
After finding kindness and compassion from two strange men who show up at the compound and help her when she is no longer capable of helping herself, Cordelia does the only thing she thinks she can do in order to survive and not be stuck in a world of abuse and misery.
She runs.
Unfortunately for Cordelia, she doesn’t make it very far before she finds herself in trouble again and at the mercy of another male with alpha tendencies. This alpha also comes with a brother by blood and one by choice.
The problem is, Cordelia’s not so sure she could ever find a place in a pack again after everything she’s survived. She won’t have long to figure it out though because, no matter the cost, her father is determined to find her and bring her home.

Warning – Due to certain sensitive sexual subject matter and abusive situations, this book may contain triggers for some people.
It’s also a Reverse Harem book.

Goodreads

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

I had to take a few minutes to let this book really sink in. Some scenes were hard to read and had me fighting mad. Ok so let me start with WOW!!! The beginning of this book tore me up. Really how cold can a family be especially a father? What Cordelia had to endure should have broken her but she is one strong woman that can pick herself up and keep going. Everyone she thought loved her or at least cared about her let her down in a BIG way. Her saving grace was the two strangers who were alpha wolves who helped her when she was at her lowest. After all she endured how could she trust these strangers. After the last blow of having a door slammed in her face she was done and going to set out on her own. She would trust no one and rely only on herself. The alphas that found her Luca and Cal knew she was theirs and was so disappointed when the realized she was not going to meet up with them like she said.

OH MY GOD lets talk about Darius because I’m all about this tormented scared soul. He is Luca and Cal’s brothers and when he realized Cordelia was special to them he had stop her when he realized she was going to run. Well he put an end to that really quick and took her when she tried to run. Yep that’s one way to stop her. His plan was to take her back to his family home and have the brothers meet up with them. I fell in love with Darius really the like/hate between Darius and Cordelia was off the charts for sure. One of my favorites was in the gas station all I can say is I loved that cane wielding grandma.

Even though I love Darius there is something about Callum that interest me but I have not got a good feel for Luca yet.  All three have strong feelings for their Cordelia and would protect her with their life. Cal and Luca want time with Cordelia like Darius had but they know they need to have patients with Cordeli and give her the space she needs right now.

Everything Cal, Luca and Darius has done up to this point to protect themselves and Cordelia is going to catch up with them. Let me tell you it is going to get ugly and messy. I suppose we will see who will stand by the brothers and Cordelia and who will betray them because oh yes there will be some traders. Callum, Luca, Darius and Cordelia will need to be on the same page to withstand what is coming their way.
