Scarification is his outlet, and he just captured a new canvas.
Kate refuses to surrender beneath his blade or the cruelty in his beautiful eyes.

TAKE (#5)


DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers

Deliver2500x1563

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it’s whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can’t deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.


VANQUISH, Book 2

Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.


DISCLAIM, Book 3

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?


DEVASTATE, Book 4

“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”

Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.

When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.

Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview – Seeking My Destiny by Jenna Jacob

 

Synopsis

By day, I’m Sasha Evans, successful business owner and entrepreneur.
By night, I’m Destiny, Club Genesis’ masochistic bottom who craves pain and won’t kneel to just any Top.
The subs around me are all pairing up with the Doms of their dreams. I can’t even find someone to whip away my stress and grant me peace. It’s driving me mad!
But you know the old saying, Never tempt fate…
Falling into bed with my tall, ruggedly handsome business associate, Lawson Pratt, isn’t the smartest move I’ve ever made, but he certainly melted me with pleasure.
And when compelling Sadist Parker Cane offered me a contract, promising to make all my most agonizing fantasies come true, I was torn.
How’s a girl supposed to choose between tingling passion and sweet torment?
What if I can have both men work their magic on me?
It sounds great—in theory. And it’s feeling that way too—until a menacing madman from the past returns to steal not only my bliss…but my life.

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

We return to Club Genesis with Destiny, aka Sasha. Destiny has been with Club Genesis for years and we have seen her before in past stories. She knows what she is and what she isn’t. She is a masochist bottom, she is not a submissive, and as much as she would like to be in the “submissive cool clique” she is not. She has several times thought that she has found “the one” but the Doms always left her for another causing her to have a massive chip on her shoulder.
She has been given a contract for a Sadist Dom by the club’s owner to review and possible sign because he feels this Dom might just be what she needs.
Law is the VP of the advertising firm that Sasha has hired for her company. Sparks of attraction fly immediately between these two and since she is about to be sex free for two weeks when she signs Master Cane’s contract she gives in to Law and his one night of hot sex. However, she has a hard time sticking to just one night because of the strong pull between them.
Master Cane is all her little masochist heart desires, the dom to cause her the pain that she needs to be free. It doesn’t hurt that he is a hottie too. She is torn between her desire for pain and her desire for love.
OK, so mind blown!!! Sneaky, sneaky men. I’ve felt bad for Destiny for a while, she always seems to be on the cusp of love and then the Dom or Doms that she’s spreading time with find their “one” and she’s once again alone. It’s really no wonder that she has a chip on her shoulder and seems to be a bit of a b***h.
Law and Master Cane have a plan that has her questioning her belief that she isn’t a sub. Her finding herself is awesome and that she is so much more than she thought is great. That these two saw her and knew that she belonged to them before she even knew them makes my knees weak.
Jenna Jacob has once again done a wonderful job of showing the loving relationship of a Master/Masters and a submissive. She has also shown us way Club Genesis is a family that always stand by each other helping them when they need it.
I love this Club Genesis family and I hope to see more from them.

#WOTR2019 #Review #Paranormal. The Vampire’s Genie (The Wish Series Book 1) by Teresa Gabelman

The Vampire's Genie (The Wish Series Book 1)

One would think most genies have it made, but that’s not the case for Janelle. She hates the outfit, hates the lamp, and overall hates the gig. It’s not until hot vampire Dean Frye steals her out from under her current master’s nose that she thinks maybe being a genie has its benefits.

Dean has one thing and one thing only on his mind when he sends his friend on a quest to seek out a genie lamp. Freedom. Plain and simple. Then he meets Janelle, his genie, and realizes that granting every wish her heart desires is the only wish he wants.

Goodreads

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

Dean Frye  is a vampire that no longer wishes to be one.  He feels he has seen and done all that he can and wishes to be free from his immortal prison.   Castel is his half-breed friend/employee that he had procure a genie lamp, Reed is a human employee/friend that has the jokes, is always a hair away from getting his self killed with his mouth and they all live together.

Janelle is a genie that hates being a genie, has served thousands of masters, and now her Master is the hottie Dean.

Ok, first off all I can think is Teresa needs to add a character named Sam to go along with Dean and Castel, because Hello Supernatural!!! Lol!!!  Second, one look at Janelle has Dean changing his mind about no longer being immortal, love love at first sight and third its is always great when the hero/heroine have something in common and these two hated their lot in life finding each other changes things.

Vampire’s Genie is a short little read with lots of humor, a few vamps, and more than one genie.

If you are looking for something light after a heavy read than this one might be for you.

#WOTR19 #Paranormal #Review #NewSeries – Lobos by Teresa Gabelman and Victoria Danann

Teresa Gabelman is our attending author

The Three Rivers Pack has been deeply embedded in Kerrville commerce and society for generations. They own businesses and hold government offices, including that of sheriff. But the influx of retirees and well-to-do building second homes in the Hill Country has squeezed the shifters for room to run.

The only answer is relocation to a less populated locale and that will require making a deal with the pack that holds that territory. The alliance struck by the two alphas is blood seal, a political mating between the Lobos alpha’s daughter and the Three Rivers alpha’s son. It’s the perfect solution that benefits both tribes.

Except nobody asked Fleet Ryder and Dani Alvarez if they were willing. And they aren’t.

I received this book for an honest review.

Say what! Who does arranged marriages anymore well it looks like Fleet and Dani’s fathers do. Fleets pack needs more room to roam and Dani’s pack needed financial help. So the fathers declared their children would be mated to tie the packs together.

As you can imagine Dani and Fleet did not take kindly to this arrangement. Fleet and his boys go on a road trip to find out more about Dani and her pack. After Dani and Fleet meet they come up with a plan to run away to get to know one another.

This is where things pick up Dani and Fleet try to fight their arranged mating. They learn more about each other. While on their road trip they found another pack member believes Dani was his and doesn’t want to let her go. Needless to say Fleet was not happy someone was after his mate.

I liked getting to know Dani and Fleet plus all their friends. I have to say I am intrigued to find out more about this group of friends.

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

What happens when your friend brings home a genie lamp? well you rub it of course. That is exactly what Dean did but he did not expect anything to happen but when the beautiful Janelle appeared he was love struck.

Both Dean and Janelle just want to be free of their situation. Dean is a vampire who just wants to be able to walk in the sun light. Janelle no longer wants to be a genie who is expected to please and grant wishes all her days.

Janelle landed in the right man’s hands for once but can Dean keep her or will her past master claim her back.

This was a quick read packed with humor.

********************************************************************

Reviving Kendall and Refusing Kendall (White Trash Trilogy) by Brandy Slaven

Reviving KendallRefusing Kendall

Goodreads

Amazon – Refusing Kendall

My Review – Reviving Kendall

When your BFF tells you that you need to read this book and then follows it up by gifting it to you. You read it and Holy crap on a cracker this was an awesome book. I’m telling you I jumped into this book and could not put it down. Seriously before I knew it I was almost done with the book and it was 1:30 in the morning.

What does a girl who goes from having a nice life with grandparents who love her and 3 yes 3 boyfriends to having her world turn upside down and inside out. Kendall lost her grandmother to cancer then she lost Brian, Will and Casey in a tragic car accident. Now she does what she has to do just to get through each day. She gets tormented in school, has to work to help pay the bills, and takes care of her gramps who has cancer. She has too much on her plate to worry about boys.

Kendall finds herself waiting on Teagan, Logan, Goose AKA Grant, and Maverick at the restaurant. They come on strong and she blows them off. Kendall works hard for what she has and refuses to take handouts. It takes some time for Kendall to let the walls down around her heart but when she does she finds something in each of the guys. When the guys realize what she means to them and figures out how to deal with the jealousy things really get heated.

There were so many favorites for me in this book. The dates these guys take her on had me swooning. Even though each date was different and rightfully so since each guy has different likes. I loved seeing them happy on the mountain trip but when things go wrong I was heartbroken. And I was balling when Kendall’s world once again got turned upside down and inside out. I have to say a side character, Lincoln Logan’s brother now holds a place in my heart but Mav walked away with it. I’m telling you I need to read the second book and I will probably have a hard time waiting for book three. Thank you Angie for gifting me this book.

A few of my favorites:

His eyes roam over my face like he’s trying to figure out how to fix the white trash ruin that I am, but he has no idea just how impossible that would be.

“Kendall, this is probably one of the hardest things that you will ever have to go through, but it will make you a better person for it. You just have to live. If for no other reason than for them. Live life to the fullest, just like you know that they would want you to.”

“Kendall, don’t make us late to class because I will come over there, drag you out and drive you to school in whatever you’re wearing.”

My Review – Refusing Kendall

I received this book for an honest review.
I enjoyed this book as much as I did Reviving Kendall. There were so many twists and turns. This one had my emotions all over the place I found myself laughing one minute then angry the next.
I loved seeing the relationships develop between Kendall and her guys. We learn more about their pasts and how their relationship works. Even though they have been together for a while there is still a lot they are still trying to learn about each other and dealing with trust issues. The boys are trying to juggle playing college ball and making time for Kendall. Kendall is living in the “haunted house” as she says while the boys live in the dorms. I have to say I was disappointed in Teagan at one point in this book and Kendall had me shaking my head every time she would make comments about the stupid girl that dies in the horror movies then she would do it anyway.
The drama and angst had my heart beating erratic. The ups and downs and seeing what everyone when through in this one had me turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. I cannot wait for the next one.

A few of my favorites:

No matter how crazy shit gets around here, these are the moments that keep us sane and more importantly, together.

His smile turns soft, “You can call me whatever you want, as long as I get to see that beautiful face.”

Reality says that I am the biggest hypocrite on the planet for wanting to keep them all for myself, but my heart says that reality can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

“Kendall,” Teagan starts, “Ever since you threw my money back at me in the restaurant, you’ve had me wrapped around your finger. I went stupid there for a bit, but I don’t want to make the same mistake and give you he chance to get away again.”

Greyson and Tray (Hell’s Harlem Series) by J.M. Walker

Amazon – Greyson

Amazon – Tray

My Review – Greyson

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
Greyson, Greyson, Greyson…this man intrigued me from the first moment we saw him and not in a great way. Yes I was a little… ok a lot aggravated at him. You see he wanted Brogan and well she wants and NEEDS Coby. Therefore, there is no room for Greyson.
Eve has no idea who she is or why she is running but all she knows is whatever she is running from is bad. She finds herself running right into Greyson. She feels protected and safe when he is around. I like Eve she may not know who she is or how she got where she is but she is determined to make it even if she never finds the truth.
Greyson has a heart of ice. You see he was in love with a girl who was never his and could not have in the end. When Eve came through the compound that night his heart began to thaw for this woman.
JM has a way of taking a guy you think you will not like and turn him into someone you love. Is he an asshole? Oh yes but in the best way. Is he demanding and controlling? Yes he is but ask Eve it is the best kind of demanding and controlling. JM has the best twists and turns that I didn’t even see them until they smacked me in the face. Watching these two open up and trust one another was amazing but when Eve’s past catches up to Greyson and Eve can they overcome and survive all that is coming their way?

A few of my favorite quotes

“I’m here to make sure you don’t hurt yourself. I don’t need that shit on my hands.” It wasn’t the truth, but she didn’t need to know that. I was there because I wanted to be. I was there because not even knowing me for twenty-four hours and she was already chipping away at the ice blocking my heart.

I know I’m difficult to get along with. I know I’m an asshole, but I love hard and I won’t hurt you.

My Review – Tray
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
All things holy Tray is my new favorite male. Just when I thought I knew him wow I had no idea. This is somewhat of a Romeo and Juliet.
Tray is a nomad that has stayed with the Hell’s Harlem for a while but when he meets the beautiful sassy Zillah she captures him. However, Zillah is off limits she is the baby girl of the rival MC President. Zillah has been protected from the outside world and the MC world by her father. Now that she older she is ready to break free from his protection. She feels a pull to Tray and she is ready to follow it. There is so much going on with Tray right now with trying to keep his relationship with Zillah under wraps and trying to restore his relationship with his best friend Catch for the wrongs Tray did by him.
The twist and turns in this one were absolutely shocking and the deceit was strong in this one. The insta-attraction Tray and Zillah was amazing. The chemistry and banter between these two was great. I loved Grayson but Tray just pulled me over to his side. I am excited to see what will come next in this series. J.M. does a great job of keeping me on my toes and flipping those pages. She really knows how to tell a story and drag you in.

The Ties That Bind Tyson: An Ariel Kimber Novella

Amazon – Tyson

My Review – The Ties that Bind

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Oh Nellie this was jammed pack. Ariel discovered her real father was out there. Between her and her boys having to deal with the Council and dealing with the past this was an unforgettable read.
There is so much in this book I’m not sure my review will do it justice. The council is having Ariel do blood magic to find her father. This doesn’t make Quinton happy. Not only this but the council brought Chucky and Annabelle back into their lives and ugh that is all I’m going to say about that. Then we do get to meet Rain, Ariel’s father, to be honest I am not sure what to think of him.
I loved to see Ariel and the guy’s relationship grow. Even though they all have trust issues after being hurt in their past we are learning more about each of them. I like how we are learning about the guys along with Ariel. Each of them has a different personality and Ariel reacts to them all differently. I have to say my heart is opening more toward Damien. Tyson made me sad when he asked Ariel to keep secrets from others.
This book kept my attention and was hard to set down. I am intrigued to see what will happen next and to see Ariel and her coven learn more about each other and grow closer.
A few of my favorites
The girl has a serious mouth that she had no problem popping off whenever the mood struck her (and it stuck her often enough), but being mouthy and unafraid to speak your mind were a whole lot different.
I don’t think you know how to just be. Be in the moment. Be happy. To just breathe and not have to be fighting for something or fighting off someone.

My Review – Tyson

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
My heart goes out to Tyson. Although I was not very happy with him in the last book I have to say he is on the path to making me see the greatness in him. He is not without flaws I mean he did ask Arial to keep things from his brothers. He has so much guilt going on because he feels responsible for tearing his family apart. They mean everything to him and he would do anything to protect them. I love how we get to know why Tyson is the way he is.
Ever since the day Arial pulled them all into a dream their focus has been to treat her the best they can and protect her. I do like that we got to see behind Tysons walls because man can he toss them up fast. It is amazing the way the brothers are such a tightknit coven and only want what’s best for Arial. Then when you see how none of them get jealous of one another for spending time with Arial only makes me think so much more of them. They truly want and need Arial to love all of them.
The ending was the best with all of them together as a unit. I am so ready for more of these brothers and Arial. I enjoy learning more and more about these guys but I like that we find out about each one right along with Arial.

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolfs Series) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Secrets

Goodreads

Amazon

My Review – Forbidden Secrets

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
OH my Goodness finally its Leda’s story. We have seen her grow as a young teen to an amazing woman ready to avenge her family.
we get to know Leda when her, her brother, and Janna walked into Lee County territory. We saw Leda’s and a favorite of mine VC Warrior Steve’s relationship. Leda is all grown up and ready to take back her pack that was suddenly taken from her. SH e sets off on her own to right the wrong. She doesn’t tell anyone her true plan for fear she will put her new family in jeopardy.
Taz who has known Leda was his since the first time he saw her but he was willing to wait it out tell she realized the truth about them and didn’t like Steve handing around. When Taz realized he let Leda leave Lee County he is now hell bent on finding her. HE even enlists the help of the one person he cannot stand Steve, yeap you read that right. All I can say is Steve is Steve and all but drives Taz or should I say Tax insane.
Leda is in search of her uncle to avenge her parents deaths. Little did she know the ones she was protecting were on the way. Her pack and the VC Worriers have her back and will no matter what.
Will they all walk away or was Leda right in trying to keep them all away.
This book was amazing we meet Leda’s old pack, her BFF Jamie and Jamie’s brother, Malcolm. I love the chemistry between Leda and Taz, and the interactions between Taz and Sam stole my heart. I am more excited for this series. There are so many possibility with the Lee County pack. I cannot wait to see where Teresa takes us next.

Goodreads

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

I enjoyed this book as much as I did Reviving Kendall. There were so many twists and turns.  This one had my emotions all over the place I found myself laughing one minute then angry the next.

I loved seeing the relationships develop between Kendall and her guys. We learn more about their pasts and how their relationship works.  Even though they have been together for a while there is still a lot they are still trying to learn about each other and dealing with trust issues.  The boys are trying to juggle playing college ball and making time for Kendall.  Kendall is living in the “haunted house” as she says while the boys live in the dorms. I have to say I was disappointed in Teagan at one point in this book and Kendall had me shaking my head every time she would make comments about the stupid girl that dies in the horror movies then she would do it anyway.

The drama and angst had my heart beating erratic. The ups and downs and seeing what everyone when through in this one had me turning the pages to see what was going to happen next. I cannot wait for the next one.

A few of my favorites:

No matter how crazy shit gets around here, these are the moments that keep us sane and more importantly, together.

His smile turns soft, “You can call me whatever you want, as long as I get to see that beautiful face.”

Reality says that I am the biggest hypocrite on the planet for wanting to keep them all for myself, but my heart says that reality can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine.

“Kendall,” Teagan starts, “Ever since you threw my money back at me in the restaurant, you’ve had me wrapped around your finger. I went stupid there for a bit, but I don’t want to make the same mistake and give you he chance to get away again.”

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her typing away at her laptop, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at one of the state parks. Bringing her characters to life is one of her greatest accomplishments.

A man on a mission….
Mackenzie Coalson was determined to rebuild his hometown after a devastating flood left it in ruins. He has no time for a relationship and all the romantic junk that goes with it. He has a vandal to catch and no sweet smelling bundle of femininity is going to sway him.

A woman protecting her family…..
Dixie Harris charged into the county sheriff’s office with a sassy sway and a smart mouth, eager to give the sheriff, and anyone else, a piece of her mind. When she locks horns with the devil himself, in the form of Mac Coalson, she quickly learns he has a temper to rival hers, even if he’s the living epitome of her sexual fantasies.

When the two unite to catch a potential murderer, it’s in everyone’s best interest to keep it, “business only”. But that’s hard to do when their combined attraction is volatile enough to burn down the town.

This is the first book in the series and was free on amazon. You meet Mackenzie “Mac” Coalson who loves his family and town and would do anything to protect them. You also meet Dixie Harris who is a stubborn woman that loves her brother and would do anything to protect him and her family name.

Mac is determined to help rebuild his town after a flood has destroyed the majority of it but someone keeps sabotaging his work. Finally they find he culprits a group of teenage boys one of which is the brother of the new kindergarten teacher, Dixie Harris. Dixie in knowing there is an explanation and that the Mac she hears such great things about will listen to reason only to find out he is just as bull headed as she is and doesn’t listen to a word only wants the boys arrested.

Well Dixie is bound and determined to get Mac to see reason and convinces him to give her brother, Jamie, a job. While Mac and Dixie are busy butting heads the sparks begin to fly between them. Mac is reserved in his feelings being the southern gentleman he is. He knows Dixie is young for him and she challenges him at every turn. Dixie is smart, spunky, and sassy never was one to back down from anyone, she held her own, always felt she could take care of herself and her brother never needed anyone else. The banter back and forth between Mac and Dixie had me cracking up.

I enjoyed reading this and learning a little about all of Mac brothers. I cannot wait to read more about all of them and to find out who is sabotaging all their work. What a great start to a wonderful series.

A few of my favorites:

“Honey, you should be thanking me instead of yelling at me. I saved you from falling on your delightful little fanny.” His silver eyes twinkled as he pinned her with his gaze.
Mac threw back his head and laughed, the sound once again booming off the walls. “You remind me of a kitten I once had. Always spitting fire and clawing at me when I tried to pick her up, but after a few soft strokes, she began to purr.”

“Hi, Chance. How are you?” “Doing fine now that you’re here, sunshine. You brightened my day. Care to light up my nights?” He accompanied the ridiculous remark with a lecherous grin as he looked her over from head to toe taking in all of her curves in her simple suit.

“If she lacks experience, I’m sure you could teach her a few things.” Mac turned around in an instant and scowled at his brother. “She’s not that kind and you know it. She’s the marrying kind. Even you can see that. I’m not going there right now, so let’s just drop the subject and go get a beer.”
He wanted something. As his steely gray eyes deepened into the color of shiny pewter, Dixie realized with a start what it was. He wanted her. She could see the flames of desire leaping in his eyes. For an awful second she felt she’d been stripped naked and he had stolen her soul. He was definitely the Devil.
He was definitely a predator. And she was so very afraid she was his prey and he was ready to pounce.

“Stop! What is it with you and the whole stalking like an animal thing?” She ran around the coffee table. Mac smiled at the thoughts that flitted across her face. She was so easy to read. “Maybe you bring out the animal in me, baby.” She started to laugh. “Really? That’s the line you’re going with?” She snorted then clapped her hand over her mouth. Mac smiled. Yeah, where the hell did that cheesy line come from? “Hey, you put me on the spot. I can’t think straight when you’re standing there all sweet and naked.” Dixie blushed. “Much better, but I think you should leave.”
