#NewRelease, #Review, #Shifter, #TrueMates. Alpha Ascending: True Mates Generations 3 by Alicia Montgomery

Wolf shifter Lucas Anderson only knew one thing: humans were scum and not to be trusted. From the moment he was born, his future was already set: to be Alpha of the most powerful Lycan clan in the world. He would do anything to protect his clan and keep their existence a secret. But when a gorgeous,*human* police detective accuses him of murder, his life is turned upside-down and he can’t ignore her or the passion she stirs up in him and his wolf. 

Detective Sofia Selinofoto’s life revolved around putting scumbags in jail and getting justice for the weak and innocent. However, her razor-sharp focus and ethics are put to the test when her murder investigation leads her to CEO billionaire Lucas Anderson. From the moment she sets her eyes on him, the pull of attraction was so strong she almost forgets that he could be a killer. But, she knows he’s hiding something and solving this particular puzzle both scares and thrills her.

Unable to resist each other, they play a dangerous cat-and-mouse game that only brings them closer together and sparks the flames of their desire. When her life is threatened, he knew he would burn the world down to protect her. But, she was still human and not to be trusted. Can he put his prejudices aside and put his faith in her or will he forever want someone he can never truly have?

Find out by reading this sizzling paranormal romance now!
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


The True Mates Generations Series is back with Lucas’s book.
Lucas Anderson is the next Alpha of New York and CEO of the Fenrir Corporation.  Sophia Selinofoto is a human detective of the NYPD.
Parts of this story coincided with book 2 which is Lucas’s twin sister’s book so you get a little bit of a view of what happened in those scenes from his point of view which is cool.
Lucas is unlike the other alpha’s in that he changed at a young age due to seeing his sister hurt and  because of that the blood lust caused him to shift.  He still has problems sometimes when he sees someone he loves being hurt and his wolf takes over causing a shift that he has no control over and it can make him very dangerous when he goes through a shift like that.
Sophia is called to the Blood Moon night club due to a disturbance and sees him after such a shift.
What happens next is fate putting them into each other’s path by her investigating a murder of a man that has ties to him and she can’t help but look more closely into him.
Lucas doesn’t want anything to do with the human, but his wolf is always calm around her.  When she realizes that he is not who she’s looking for and he realizes that maybe his wolf is right to want her things change.
Montgomery does a great job at showing us how hard it is to still  be a woman in what is still considered to be a man’s field of work and how hard it is to still to the right thing sometimes.  She also does a wonder job at showing us how hard Lucas works to control his wolf when it gets agitated and wants it to shift.
I can not wait to see what happens next after the ending that she wrote to this story either because it was a totally out of nowhere.

#NewRelease, #Review, #BrodyBrothers. Bruised (BrodyBrother book 3) by Stacy Gail

Y

“You’re coming with me.”

When Killian Brody showed up at Dallas Faircloth’s work with news that her half-brother might die without her help, she never expected the oldest and sexiest Brody to freaking kidnap her to seal the deal on her cooperation.

The scandalous affair between Dallas’s mother and Killian’s father made everything inside Dallas revolt at the Brody name. It was because of a Brody her world had been left in ruins at the age of eight, and she’d had to rebuild all on her own. She hated the Brodys. Which was too bad, really. Killian Brody was take-charge, arrogant and so damn sexy she would have climbed that rugged cowboy like a tree if it weren’t for that last name of his.

Her mother had proven the men in the Brody family were as dangerously addictive as any drug, and Dallas didn’t want to get hooked. But when Killian turns his sights on her and makes her believe she’s the one he can’t live without, she has a choice—play it safe, or dive in headfirst and risk falling in love with a Brody man.

85,000 words

***This standalone contemporary romance contains multiple sex scenes. Also contains an Alpha with serious impulse issues, a spicy heroine, a felonious kidnapping that may or may not count, and one teeny little spanking. No cheating, no love triangles, no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed. Due to adult language and sexual content, this book is not intended for people under the age of eighteen*** 

 

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

Welcome back to Bitterhorn Texas and say HELLO hottie to the oldest Brody brother Killian.

Ok, somethings to know about Killian: number 1 he’s a man that always gets what he wants no matter what it is. Number 2; he  has a tendency to act without thinking whether this is by action or saying something, and number 3, the man is a protector which means sometimes he does number two because of this. 

Dallas Faircloth is a woman who hates the Brody name and never thought she would see Bitterhorn again.  Why you ask? Simple, because her mother and Killian’s father had a affair which lead to a child, which lead to the absolute destruction of two families and the lives of 5 children as they knew it.

Oh my, the heat between these two I can feel all the way from Texas to my house in KY!!!!  

The relationship between these two in the beginning is rough to say the least, after all he did “kidnap” her and bring her back to Bitterhorn.  She was coming back on her own but he didn’t know that when he grabbed her.  See here’s the thing, the half brother that they share was hurt and no one was a match but her, so even though she was coming back to help the little brother he didn’t know that so it was technically kidnapping but not really. LOL

When they stop fighting and start talking they see how much they have in common, neither lived the life the other thought they did growing up, and they start having feelings for each other.

Gail has done another awesome job at showing yes alpha men can be for lack of a better word a**holes, but they have feelings too and maybe can turn that part of themselves off for the love of a woman that will stand of to that and show them that they can show their softer side to the world.

The last Brody brother is going to be the baby Des, he’s going to be a doozy and I can’t wait to see the woman who claims him.

#NewRelease, #Review, #Contemporary, Shouldn’t Have You (Fractured Connections Book 2) by Carrie Ann Ryan




I’ve been many things in my life: daughter, friend, student, lover, wife…and now, widow. Getting past those labels and finding who I could be without them was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
Then I became friends with Brendon Connolly. 
Every time I look at him, I see a past, I see a present, and I’m afraid if I look too hard, I’ll see a future.

~~~

I’ve known Harmony Wynham since before she got married. Before she lost everything. I didn’t know that one day she wouldn’t be just my friend but the woman I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
Only I don’t think that can happen. 
Not when every time she looks at me, she sees what she lost, and I can only see what I can’t overcome.
I love her, even though I shouldn’t. Somehow, we need to find a balance. 
Because if we don’t, walking away will be the hardest thing I’ve ever done—even if it’s the only thing I should do.
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book


Hope you have your tissues handy for this one folks because you will need them!  
Next up in our Fractured Connections group is Harmony and Brendon.
Harmony, at such a young age, has now  dealt with two huge losses; the sudden death of her husband and now the death of one of her best friends.  
Brendon and Harmony were friends in school, her husband was his business partner, and they are learning to be friends again.
Brendon is someone who did not have a great home life until Jack and Rose and even though he had a better life after those early years did a number on him.
Harmony has started dating again, much to her dismay, and is only happy with her dates when she talks to Brendon afterwards.
Brendon has secret feelings for Harmony but feels that he is not good enough for her for several reasons of which I will not go into because you gotta read the book!!! LOL!!! 
Both characters are very well written and makes you have tons of feelings for them.  I love the way they develop from friends to more than friends, its something for her that is just like “there you are, where have you been”. For him it was like “ I love her but she can do so much better,”  yes he had feeling for her but they didn’t come about until after the death of her husband
There is sooooo much to say about this book but I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone.  
Ryan has once again wrote a beautiful story grounded in real life.
If you know anything about Carrie Ann Ryan you know this one hit close to home, but as she says in the Author’s note this is not her story this is Harmony’s and I think  Harmony, Brendon and Moyer justice.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #SpinOffSeries #Review #Paranormal – Uprising: Dark Horizons 1 (Eternally Mated Book 7) by Valerie Twombly

Uprising: Dark Horizons 1 (Eternally Mated Book 7)

“We can’t fight evolution, only ride it out and hope the ending is in our favor.” Ryder Mattis

As a former Navy Seal, beating the odds is something Ryder excels at. However, the world has changed and his transformation into a vampire gives survival a whole new meaning. If that isn’t enough to ruin his life, a plague unleashes utter destruction on humanity. He knows he has what it takes to protect those who survive even if they don’t like his rules. What he doesn’t count on is a female with stormy eyes and a will to live getting under his skin.

Kayla has lost everyone she loves to the red death. Surviving the plague is one thing, but a vow made to her dying father puts her under the protection of a predator. Surprised at how her body reacts to Ryder when he feeds, she has a hard choice to make. But when tragedy strikes and forces the vampire to give her his blood, she morphs into something no one could ever predict.

The new world doesn’t come with a handbook and when fate brands them as potential mates, they are not prepared. They can either battle each other, or band together in a fight for survival. The future holds no guarantees, but being alone might be worse than death.

This is a spin-off series and can be read as a standalone or, with the Eternally Mated series.

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

I know I saw this every time I read a paranormal but It’s my JAM!!!  I love love love me some paranormal.  I love shifters, vampires, demons, angels, and all the possible additions to a storyline.  This book, which is a spin off series, was just what I needed and loved.

I am going to start by saying I have NOT read the Eternally Mated series.  However, I will be rectifying that soon.  I did not feel I missed anything or was lost at any point of the story.  I think the storyline was filled in during this book about what happened in the other series.  SHEW right!!!!

So this book is taking place during the end of the world essentially.  Ryder and his group of Navy Seals are set to protect the last few remaining humans to help repopulate the world after The Red Death has destroyed everyone. He is one of the original vampires and he has turned a few of his trusted men into vampires to help get the job done.  He only asks that females who do stay with them, help feed his men to keep them alive.  Pretty decent trade off…surviving death for a few sips of your blood right???

Ryder is getting ready to leave when a sassy, pink haired beauty who is also a pain in his ass shows up and informs him he needs to protect her.  Seems Ryder and her dad were Navy buddies.  From the start of Kayla and Ryder meeting, the sparks and chemistry sizzle!!  I mean they are so hilariously attracted and annoyed by the other it makes for great reading.

Kayla has lost everyone and is bound and determined to make it to this Ryder guy for protection.  She surely did not plan on the attraction to the alpha male and his over the top protection of her.

Kayla and Ryder plus another couple soon find a strange mark that they have no clue what it means.  Kayla and another soon find out they too have another secret about why they have survived the Red Death when everyone else has died.

On top of all the couple drama, we are dealing with rogue vampires, gross looking demons running amuck annnnd the portal to hell being opened to rid the Earth of humans in general….Yup LOTS happening in the story!!!

I can not wait to read the next story but I will be trying to get the other 6 books of the other series read ASAP too.

Award winning and bestselling author Valerie Twombly grew up watching Dark Shadows over her mother’s shoulder, and from there her love of the fanged creatures blossomed. Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper.

Kate….guuuurl you write some nasty and that is prolly why I love reading your books!!  LOL

If you know about this series, each story is a quick, hot, sexy read about a couple.  Its insta-love but hell its insta-sexy time too sooo go in knowing it’s gonna be naughty!!

I have to say I REALLY liked Max and Audrey’s story and considering Audrey’s secret …yup I still like her.  She is a confident woman and she isn’t going to stop being her even though she falls hard core for Max.

Max is a workaholic and he meets a sexy workaholic at the hotel bar during a convention.  After some flirting they plan on ditching work for some much needed fun….annnd there is a lot of fun in and outta the bedroom.

I don’t want to write much about this story because it is a short novella but the twist of the story is pretty epic sooooo do us a favor and buy the sexy book and read it because you will not be sorry!!

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

I am enjoying this series. They are short hot reads.

Max is on a business trip to land a big deal but when he meets Audrey in the hotel bar he decided they both needed a break from work. He invites Audrey to go to an amusement park for the day and play hooky from work. Let me tell you I never had a date at an amusement park like they did. Lets just say it wasn’t all PG.

Things start off hot and steamy but can they stay this way when Max finds out what Audrey’s little secret is? I absolutely fell head over heals for Max and Audrey for that matter. I am so excited to see what Kate has up her sleeve for the next book.

Oh Eli!!  I have waited and waited for your book.  I loved getting to see the man whore FINALLY getting his girl.  Home for the Holidays was just a tease novella for me.

Kait and Eli have been through so much in the novella and now, the when the story picks up in this book, it just gets even harder for their HEA.  So many issues they have to deal with and overcome.

Kait and Eli need to rediscover who they once were and who they are now plus deal with the issues of her leaving and marrying another man.  Eli needs to tell Kait the truth about the man he was when she wasn’t around because those actions cause issue for them in the novel.

Eli makes huge grand gestures to prove to Kait he is the one for her and she is the one for him They both need to see the other for who the are and what they need to do to finally secure their happy life.

The epilogue made my heart happy. We get some loose ends tied up and more of the HEA is told.  It was a really sweet 2nd or even 3rd chance love story between soul mates.

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review.

I met this author at a book con.  She told me all about her soon to be releases so when I saw them available, I grabbed them.  I had no clue except she was absolutely friendly and kind to chat with.

Imagine my shock and delight when I see this book is about a hottie in a kilt….uhm YES PLEASE!!!

This story is super funny, sweet, and one that I am so happy to have grabbed of Netgalley.  I will say since this is the first book in the series, there was a bit of “world” building getting to know the characters and all that jazz but stick with it because the story is great!!

This story is about Cassie and a couple friends who take a trip.  All Cassie want is to have a wild one-night stand, but her box of condoms is still full……BOOO!!  Cassie soon finds herself sidetracked with a certain kilt wearing hottie named Logan.  Logan is all “full steam ahead” on helping her use as many condoms as possible before her trip is over.  *Snicker*

Cassie is a bit of a serious chick.  She so when Logan asks her to help him with some pranks she kinda flips out.   Relax girl!!  It’s all good!!  LOL

I enjoyed the story so much and can’t wait to read the next book I the series.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review #2ndChanceLove – Minx by Maggie Adams

MINX

A romantic comedy about friendships, flirtations, and the elusive “Fantasm!”

Hi! I’m Miranda Blake and this is my story. Well, sort of. It’s more like a twisted fairytale, if you believe in them. Except there’s no beautiful, young princess with perky breasts, perfectly coiffed hair and a sassy attitude. I’m closing in on fifty, thirty pounds overweight according to Weight Watchers, and, after nursing two kids and that bitch, gravity, doing her job, I’m lucky the ladies don’t hit my knees. The gorgeous brown mane of hair is slightly frizzy from my ridiculous attempts to recapture my youth by dyeing the hell out of it. As for sassy attitude, well, it wasn’t so long ago that I was a doormat. And the charming prince who sweeps me off my feet into the life of my dreams? I have a dog called Prince, German Shepherd, who knocks me on my ass if I’m in the way when the doorbell rings. Does that count?


Goodreads


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

OMG this book was hilarious!!!  I seriously LOVE the characters of the story.  Miranda and her crew of best friends were so awesome to read.  But the temptation tug of which brother, Reed or Ritter, was great too!  Miranda’s friends are seriously the best people around.  They lover her 110% and are going to do anything and everything to make sure she gets the HEA with a good guy this time around.

Miranda legit is told by her DB future ex its over.  They are getting ready to leave for a cruise when he drops the bomb, she is being replaced by a younger woman and she is to get outta their family home ASAP.  Miranda rallies her troops and they set to help her find herself and pick herself back up after 20 years of marriage.

What skills does an outta work housewife, stay at home mom have?  Well she has enough to charm a playboy named Ritter into hooking her up with a job at his company.  When she meets his very stuck up brother, Reed, she is confused as to how they can be so different.

As the story unfolds, we begin to see different sides to both men.  Neither is who we thought they were.  Is Ritter the good guy or a DB?  Is Reed really an uptight jackass or just a guy protecting his heart????

I seriously snickered so many times reading this book and loved, loved, loved how it all played out.
