#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!

#NewRelease #RH #Review – Jinxed: Toxic Bitchcraft Book One by K.B. Ladnier

Jinxed: Toxic Bitchcraft Book One

Never cross a Craft witch…

Christi Craft is the name and being witchy is my game!

I own a little shop in rural Salem, filled with all manner of fun things; priceless heirlooms, cursed artifacts, bath bombs, Spills (magically spelled pills, if you get my drift). You know, harmless things.

However, Milo James, a sexy AF Warlock Warden, disagrees. He’s always giving me citations and fines for selling my cursed artifacts to humans who don’t know any better. I’ve known him most of my life, and he sees me as a little sister – at least, that’s how he treats me. Dang it…

If that’s not enough, Arlo, my Incubus lover, suddenly wants more from me than just an occasional roll in the sheets. On top of that, I have to deal with this poltergeist I unknowingly acquired with a recent purchase. He’s demanding I solve his murder. What he doesn’t seem to grasp is that I suck at being a witch.

But things aren’t what they seem when it comes to this spirit, and I’m not sure I can help him on my own. With or without my power.

**This is a REVERSE HAREM romance filled with laughs, lust, and a whole lot of foul language. You’ve been warned.** 


Shut up!!  This book is to freaking funny!!!

I don’t know what I loved more?  The ghost haunting her, her cussing skeleton head, or her two hot men lusting over her.  I guess her pixie sidekick was a great read too.  If any of the past 2 sentences intrigued you, then buy this book people.  I laugh so much when I read her books.  They are so hilariously funny and yet so true to life.

Christi is a Craft Witch!!  Yikes run and hide right!!  I mean we all know how powerful they are ….well they all are except for this little witch.  She is a hot mess and can’t seem to cast a simple levitation spell correct.  On top of her lack of witchcraft abilities, she is now dealing with a pouty demon who is all “Can’t you just love me” to her when she is all about the booty calls.  Poor girl right!!

Now the next part of her life drama happens when her hottie warlock shows up.  She has crushed on him since they were little kids are her mom dated his dad.  Mom likes to hit it and quit it, but Christi and Milo have stayed friends.  When Christi notices her inappropriate feelings for her friend and wonders if he has them for her, she freaks.

I think the worst part of Christi’s life is when the ghost AKA Buttons shows up in her life.  This drama forced her to go and see Mommy Dearest who decided to “help Christi” embrace the witch she truly is…by cursing her to have sex!!  LOL

I loved the story and can’t wait for more. The ending chapters we see there will be some men fighting over our girl plus the death of Buttons seems to be anything but accidental!!

K.B. Ladnier is from a small city in Southern Mississippi. She has one daughter and three cats who she claims are stealing her soul in only tiny doses so she won’t notice. She is a cyborg and spends most of her time hiding from her tiny human so she doesn’t have to share her snacks as she reads her favorite books. She hates the beach yet lives only ten minutes away from it and daydreams of mountains and snow. She is married to a hot nerd and loves him dearly even though he hordes cookies and occasionally hides her prosthetic leg from her when she’s mad, so he can get a quick escape. She plans to write as long as people continue loving what she does, otherwise she’s going to say screw it and do her second dream of owning a coffee shop. Though, she may still do both.



#WOTR18 #Review – False Security by Evan Grace

FALSE SECURITY by Evan Grace is LIVE from Crave Publishing!
It was supposed to be a harmless blind date-but it ended in a one night stand when Shayla up and left in the middle of the night without a wink or a wave.
I didn’t think I’d see her again…until I walked into my office and met our new employee—none other than the curvy brunette who had rocked my world. 
The more she fights the attraction between us, the more determined I am to make her mine. Not even the ghosts from her past have the power to stop me from wanting her. 
There’s a threat hiding in the shadows, a danger whose only goal is to ruin Shayla. But I’ll go through hell and back to keep her safe from harm, to protect her. 
She’s mine…and not even the devil himself will take her from me. 

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

Shyla, Eric and Grant….This book was just what a girl needs when she is feeling not so great.

Eric is total player…like with a capital P and you might wanna even pop the P when you pronounce it.  Dog is another wording you might like to use for him…because friends he is.

Shyla is a single mom raising her son Grant.  She is divorced from her abusive ex and looking to start over.  Her world revolves around Grant and his revolves around his mom.  However, mommas got some itches that need to be scratched so when her friends hooks her up on a blind date, she totally hits it and leaves.  This totally floors Eric because he was actually interested in this woman who left.

Eric cannot stop thinking about this woman when he walks into work to see her sitting there as the new employee!!  Uhm yeah do ya see where this is going?  LOL  They are both freaked out over the connection they have but when something from the past comes into play, they have to make some decisions to do this together or be done!!

I loved the story and cant wait for more from this series.

#REVIEW – Arrogant (A Real Man, 6) by Jenika Snow

Even a bad boy can wear a suit and tie…


All it took was one look at Harley to know I wanted her.

It wasn’t about the deliberate sexual dry spell I was going through either … the one I voluntarily participated in. No, there was something about her innocence and her vulnerability that had possessiveness running through my veins.

I wanted her as mine, and I’d have her. I’d show her that although I could be cruel to those who went up against me, when it came to her, I’d make the world bow down at her feet.


The position I had been offered was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, but it also came with working for a man who had the most notorious reputation in the city.

Noah Wright was anything but Mr. Right, especially not with his arrogant, unforgiving, and tyrannical attitude. He was wealthy and gorgeous, but he struck fear into people with just a look. They knew who held the power when he was in the room. So did I.

And I was now working for him and getting an up-close-and-personal experience with his cold, hardened, and abrasive personality … and it turned me on.

But there was something else under the frigid demeanor he showed everyone, a slice of warmth he showed only me. I knew if Noah wanted me, he could easily have me, because putting up a fight was not what I planned on doing.

I wanted him, but I wouldn’t be just a conquest.

Warning: Love insta-everything in a book? Like over-the-top sugary goodness? Want your stories dripping with cocky and possessive alpha heroes who only want one woman? Get a fan and a cold glass of water ready, because this story will definitely heat you up.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Oh now this is what I’m talking about. I have an obsession with powerful dark brooding grumpy alphas. Noah is a highly successful business man who falls instantly for his new intern. And wow. The sparks that fly are something else. And when they finally do their thing?? Holy moly! *fans self*

Harley becomes an intern at Noah’s company and although he makes her nervous, she’s attracted to him.

This book is instant everything that I love and so hot. It’s definitely my favourite so far in the Real Man series.

#REVIEW – Roommate (A Real Man, 5) by Jenika Snow


I’ve done pretty damn well in hiding my feelings for her over the years, but having Meghan under the same roof as me, and only feet from my bed makes it hard to control myself.

The truth is when it comes to Meghan I don’t want to practice self-control. I love her.


I’ve known him nearly my whole life. He’s cocky, gets under my skin, but is gorgeous and caring, too. And as much as I want to say it doesn’t affect me, I’d be lying.

The truth is I love him, and I don’t know if that’ll end up destroying me.


She needed a place to stay, and now she’s got a roommate … me. But I’m about to show her that I want more than a friendly arrangement. Too much time has passed, and I’m done waiting. I’m ready to step up and be a man.

I’ve never been good at sharing, and when it comes to her, she’s mine.

Warning: You like short, hot, straight to the point stories? Do you want drama-free sexiness that leaves nothing to the imagination? Do you want a story that is pretty unbelievable, but gives you the warm fuzzies at the same time? Well then, leave your panties at the door because that’s what’s going down in this quickie.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

I’m a huge fan of these short hot reads and I find they just keep getting better and better.

Meghan and Brendan have been friends forever. And of course, they’ve been in love with each other but the other doesn’t know it. Well insert them having to move in together and BAM, pure hotness.

I especially liked when they started playing poker. That’s when the fun begins. I liked this one too because although it’s short like the others, it’s not over top. Although I do love me some over the top reads, this one was refreshing. Friends to lovers and it’s finest.

If you like quick short reads, you’ll love these books.

#Review #NewRelease #Contemporary Whiskey Reveals(Whiskey and Lies #2) by Carrie Ann Ryan

One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he’d much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey—this time for good—he’ll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.

Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother’s small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she’s focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she’ll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time.

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

We are back in Whiskey with the Collins’, this time it’s youngest of the brothers turn.

Fox Collins, hot owner and editor of the town newspaper the Whiskey Chronicles.  Ladies this man is the total package; smart, funny, a business owner, and did I mention he is hot!!!

Melody Waters Whiskey’s is newest resident and she may have met Fox a few months before moving to town and they shared one hot night together.  She has moved to town for two reasons, to help her aging grandmother and to start a new chapter in her life by becoming a business and owner herself.

I love being back with the Colllins clan, seeing the family is great.  Fox really is into Melody and she is into him, but all she thinks she can afford to be right now is friends.  She also doesn’t think she deserves more because of her past, a past that she really doesn’t want to explain just yet.

Seeing these two characters building their relationship is so sweet.  I adore Melody’s grandmother, with whom Fox is interviews for a article in the paper.  She has done so much in her life and is one of the town’s most notorious residents. LOL!!!

Of course it wouldn’t be a Carrie Ann Ryan story if she didn’t give us a little mystery and boy does she give us a big one  in the form of a stalker, someone from her past is out to get Melody.

Ryan has done it once again writing a witty, heartwarming love story full of family, fun, a strong woman and man, with a dash of mystery.  

I can’t wait for more from the Collins family!!!

#NewRelease #BDSM #Erotica #DualReview- Safe Haven, Book 1 of a Duet by Red Phoenix @redphoenix69

Safe Haven

Love has no limits…

At eighteen, I suffered a heartbreaking loss and began exploring my submissive side to escape the pain with kinky pleasure.

A chance meeting sets me on an exciting new path as a student of the Submissive Training Center. There I find Captain, a distinguished Dom I’ve totally fallen for—my safe haven.

But I have a problem.
Captain won’t collar me.


People know me as Captain.

I’ve accepted my title as a war hero, but I’m still overwhelmed by guilt…until I meet her. Candy is like no other submissive I’ve ever met. In her eyes, I see the man I used to be.

She is everything I want, but I can never be what her young heart needs.

Therefore, I must protect her—at all costs.

*A sexy tale about the saving power of love from USA Today Bestselling Author Red Phoenix


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

GAH!!!  Candy and Captain’s Books!!  Seriously these two and their dynamic has me wondering how they came to be.  I mean YES their age difference was a big question for me but knowing them I knew there was a definitely underlying love so to see the beginning = melted heart!!

SO I absolutely love how this story is told.  We are seeing both Captain and Candy’s lives that lead them to the night of Candy’s auction.  We see the struggles and situations that make them who they are today.  We see the pain in loving someone and the pain in being hurt by love.   We SEE what makes them the perfect fit.

Candy is everything Captain needs.  She is the youthful and a carefree soul to help heal his battered mind, Body, and soul.  Captain is the perfect nurturer for Candy.  He is the person who will guide her heart and teach her to trust in herself again.

Seriously I could not put this book down.  I DEVOURED it in the quickest time.  I was so enthralled in THEM.  I was so dedicated to finding out how they came to be and what shaped them to be the people they are today.

I loved the Candy/Captain dynamic when I was reading about them in the main story. Their side characters were amazing for other characters in the story IE Mary.  But to get a book….scratch that….2 books all geared to them…..GAH!!  I am so excited!!!

I received this book for an honest review.

Oh my it’s Candy and Captain and the dynamic between these two was the amazing. Candy knows immediately that Captain is the one for her but Captain keeps pushing her away because of their age and he feels he is not good enough for her.

I enjoyed reading Captains back story even thought he went through so much it made him the mad he is. To see the soft sweet protective side he had even at a young age. He cared and held his mom and brother so close to his heart and through it all they were always there. I hope more of his past comes out in the second book.

When reading Candy’s story it had me choking up and then to find out about how she got her name. Then to see what she endured before meeting Brie broke my heart. When Candy falls she knows immediately and falls so hard.

I could not set this down even though I was at a convention and my BFF kept giving me a hard time for reading. I am so ready to see what is in store for us in the next book. Candy and Captain have stole my heart.

A few of my favorites.

“I must be dreaming. A handsome man in uniform is asking me to leave work on a date? Pinch me now.”

It seems I will never know the love of family or a good woman. The only people I can trust are my own men—they are my family now.

“What color for the collar?” “Pink. I’ll also need a gold chain leash with a black leather handle.” “Not pink to match the collar?” I chuckle. “The collar is for her to wear. The leash is for me to use—so, no pink.”

#Review #Paranormal #Shifters – Alpha Unleashed (Grizzlies Gone Wild #4) by Kathy Lyons

Alpha Unleashed (Grizzlies Gone Wild Book 4)

Some men aren’t meant to be tamed. Especially if they’re Grizzlies Gone Wild.


Alyssa Nelson doesn’t actually believe that Simon Gold is a shape-shifting grizzly bear—until she sees it firsthand. Aaaaand the award for Totally Surprising Changes goes to Simon Gold.But Alyssa doesn’t have time to deal with the fact that her ruggedly hot, long-time secret crush is a shifter . . . not when her brother has turned into one, too.

After ten months in bear form, Simon is struggling. He’s not ready to deal with anyone, let alone the bold and gorgeous Alyssa. Mine, whispers his bear. But all hell has broken loose in the Detroit shifter community, and it’s spreading to humans. Now Simon must face the darkest place of all: where bear and man become one. And the only way he can make it back to his humanity is by finding—and claiming—his mate.


I purchased this book in ebook and paperback formats.

I have loved this series so far and jumped up and down when I saw this new book was out.  I was like WHAT?  How did I miss this?  So off to amazon to make sure I am following Kathy as to not miss another book!!

Our Grizzly Simon has been furry for 10 months when a human snaps …errr..scratch that…shoots him outta his bear form.  Seems she knows him and that he is furry.  We quickly learn Simon and her brother, Vic, are best friends and Vic sent her to get Simon.

Alyssa is freaking out because her brother was right, Simon, her dream guy, is a bear shifter.   She can’t believe it and is also happy to hear this news.  It seems her brother Vic, born human, is also now turning into a bear!!  WHAT!!!  That can’t happen!!

Alyssa and Simon join up to figure out what in the heck is happening.  Simon is dealing with the Grizzly just under his skin dying to get out but also with the fierce and sassy woman next to him.  He has thought Alyssa was amazing before and now that she is NOT takin his alpha crap he is in absolute love with her.

The couple have to deal with an overthrowing of the current alpha, finding out about the Detroit flu,  fighting their feelings and must more drama in the story before they can find their HEA.  I have loved the other books in the series but this one just seemed to be something missing.  I am not sure what but it just seemed to not flow as well as the others???  Maybe it was missing the other characters from the other books???  I don’t know but any way if you want to read an demanding alpha and his not so submissive alpha mate then Alyssa and Simon are a great read for you!!

#Review #Paranormal #Shifters – Jackson: NAC & The Holly Group (Alpha Team #1) by Chelsea Handcock

Book 1 of 6 Books currently in the series!

Jackson: NAC & The Holly Group (Alpha Team Book 1) by [Handcock, Chelsea]

*** Newly Re-edited Version**

Jackson Thorp believes in tangible facts, military precision and having a good time. Never forming attachments to females and never letting them attach themselves to him. His policy is love em’ and leave em’. It works and he wouldn’t have it any other way. At least that was what the thought. The fates seem to have a different plan and one little red head seems to have blasted the top off his world. He starts to questions everything his sanity, his history and the legends of the past. Could she really be the answer?

Ryleigh Quinn has her life all planned out: work, work and more work. Save as many lives as possible and fill her heart with the good she helped come into the world. She has never been normal and doesn’t even want to be. When a mission brings up memories from her childhood she if forced to confront the one man she thought would never lie to her. The events that follow also forced her to realize that maybe all work and no play isn’t what she really wants out of life. Fate has a way of making a person change their minds. Her fate just happens to come in the form of a delicious, infuriating, dominating bear Shifter. Who would have thought?


I purchased this book.

I am HUGE Shifter fan and when I saw this book pop up as an attending author for a book signing I was attending, I was sold!!  I mean shifters….YUM.  I bought this book and had to wait a month before I had time to read because being a teacher at the end of the school year…yeah no time!!   When I made my list of top priority books this was number 2 on my summer reads knowing I will probably want to read the other 5 ASAP too.

So Jacks *Shiver* what a tall drink of water. AmIRight????  Holy Sweet Baby Jesus the Swagger and the smirks but his cocky arrogance was pretty much the right combo for me.

Ryleigh was the perfect blend of sweet, sassy and feisty for our heroine.  The fact her dad was going to kick Jacks ass made it even that much better!!  LOL   But the fact she could ick ass was even THAT muh more awesome.  I loved seeing her put the guys in their place when they thought she was a weak human.

The story is about some bad people trying to make shifter kids from human and shifter DNA.  Not cool and definitely not ok. Ryleigh’s Alpha Dragon Shifter adoptive father saves her, and help protects her but also helps train her for the war that is most defiantly brewing.

Ryleigh and Jacks meet when her dad asks his men to help her team of highly trained women in saving other females much like her and them.  The chemistry was instant between the two and Jacks is flipping off his rocker.  Naïve and sweet Rye is kinda a hot mess because she has never had a boyfriend so this lust thing was alllll kinds of new to her.

So the book was REALLY slow to get started.  I put it down a few times because I just wasn’t getting into it.  I know with Paranormal you have to world build but I felt a little too much at first.  It was like a meeting between the characters was forever… 15 chapters long.  BUT once the meeting was FINALLY adjourned, the book FLEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was really invested and couldn’t put the book down at all.  I was reading too fast and then like DAMN its over!!!

The books had a lot of secrets, twists, turns and deceits that totally threw me each and every time.  The more we learn about the characters and their pasts, the more invested in the characters I became.  I really don’t know which guy I like the most as of right now.  They all have a spot in my heart but if I have to pick I would say it’s a tie between Jacks and Cash.  Jacks for the above reasons but Cash *Dreamy sigh* for his heartache.

Chelsea Handcock

Come spend a little time with me while you explore the world’s of NAC & The Holly Group and the Ruthless Bastards. The twist and turns will excite and delight. The steamy attraction and unbreakable bonds will make you melt and leave you craving more. Let your imagination go and enter a world where the men are all are hot, strong, and dominant.


#CoverReveal – Hour of Darkness, Midnight Breed Hunter Legacy Book 2 by Lara Adrain

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns with a pulse-pounding new novel in the thrilling Hunter Legacy series of vampire romances set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After a job in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ruthless former Hunter becomes the only thing standing between her and a sniper’s bullet.

Marina Moretskova is no stranger to dangerous men. As the niece of a Russian organized crime boss, she’s grown up around killers and criminals. But her uncle wants out now, and he’s enlisted Marina’s help in buying his freedom by delivering valuable intel to a secret contact in exchange for protection. Not even Marina’s bodyguards are aware of her mission, so when an attempt on her life is averted by a handsome, steely-eyed vampire, as grateful as she is for Cain’s intervention, the last thing she needs is the shrewd Breed male nosing around for answers. Cain’s cold, haunted gaze and merciless abilities attest to his brutal nature, yet the rough, solitary Hunter stirs a powerful longing in Marina—a darkly seductive hunger she can neither afford nor resist. With a target on her back and covert enemies closing in from all sides, trust is a risk that can prove deadly . . . and the safest shelter she may find is in the arms of the most lethal man she’ll ever know.
