#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary #SeriesFinale Whiskey Undone (Whiskey and Lies #3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Two best friends follow a dangerous and seductive path in the final standalone novel of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Ainsley Harris has always kept a secret from her best friend. She’s stood by his side, helped him raise his daughter, and tried to keep her distance even though she’s been in love with him for years. She knows he has secrets of his own and she’s not willing to chance what they have on a possibility.

Loch Collins has hidden himself and his past from the world for good reason. Darkness always comes back to haunt those who fight against it, and he knows better than most. One night of temper, however, forces him to realize his true feelings for Ainsley—for better or worse.

But Loch’s former allies aren’t on his side anymore, and now not only is his life and the life of his daughter on the line, but Ainsley is in the crosshairs, as well. Together, two best friends must fight for each other and their small town, because Whiskey has never burned brighter. And danger, it seems, is ever lurking.

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

I am always a bottle of mixed emotions when it comes to the last book of a series.  Happy because “Yay, a new book”, sad because “Boo, it’s the end of the series,’ and as  Loch Collins and the rest of the Collins Family have been around for a while this one being the end is especially hard.

Loch is the last single man of the hunky Collins men and I believe the grumpiest and hunkiest.

Ainsley Harris has been around the Collins family for years; went to school with Loch’s sister and as adults she and Loch became besties,  she also has a little secret that she has been keeping from him for years.

Ok seriously there is something about a growly man that gets my motor running and boy does Loch get my motor running.  Loch owns a gym and security company in town, he runs his businesses and raises his daughter that is all the man does.  OMG, Ryan just wrote the perfect man pumped, awesome with kids, protective, and growly!!!! Swoooooooooooon!!!!!!!

The push and pull between these two is amazing.  Change is never easy and when it’s a change in a relationship it’s even harder.  Loch is afraid what the change will do to his daughter, not to mention no one he has ever been with has stayed and now that there has been a murder in town he’s afraid that his past has comeback to hurt his family and that means Ainsley too.

He pulls her too him because he can’t help himself when she’s around, but he pushes her away to try and keep her safe.  

Ainsley is own strong woman because if my man was so damn wishy washy I’d have to hit him with a frying pan!!!

Ryan has once again wrote a beautiful love story with heat, passion, danger and family.  No matter what the love story she writes is about one of her main themes is family has always got your back, always there when you need them, and love you for you.

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

This book is hella creepy. The short stories gave me some wigged out feelings and the poems made me stop to look around. The authors got what they were going for.

I admit when I got this anthology I was kinda like EH about reading it and then I started. Each story or poem makes you stop and think about how you handle the ”monsters in the bed” and other creepy imaging we have about fears we live with.

If you aren’t a horror fan like me, you still can appreciate the ability the authors have in giving you the creeps in just a few lines or pages!!

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.

 

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review Lobos: Big Bend Wolves by Victoria Danann and Teresa Gabelman

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

Teresa Gabelman comes together with Victoria Danann to bring us a new shifter story.

The Alpha of the Three Rivers pack realizes that it is time for his pack to move on, humans have moved in droves to their once little town and it’s just not safe anymore.

The Lobos pack has plenty of room, more than enough room for two packs, what they lack however is the funds to keep their pack going.  The two Alphas come to an agreement, Three Rivers will move and pay into the Lobos pack and both Alphas pledge that their children will marry the other.  

 Arranged marriages in this day and age is outrageous and Fleet, son of the Alpha from Three Rivers and Danita, the daughter of the Alpha from Lobos, are not happy that they have been thrown at the other for the sake of their packs.

Ok, this story maybe on the shorter side but Fleet and Danika’s story is awesome long or short.

The way these two know that no matter what they have to do what’s right for the packs and decide to see if they will make a good mated pair is really sweet and their friends!! Their besties all help them spend some time away from the packs and together before the mating.  

So, not only do we get one of the sweetest love stories, but let’s face it it’s shifters so it’s also HOT, we also get a little danger in the story too!!  Not everyone is so happy about this mating, even if the pair themselves were against it in the beginning.

I certainly hope we get to see more from these two lovely authors, they go together so well.

Goodreads

I received this book for an honest review.

This novella made my heart happy.  I absolutely love seeing Ariels relationship grow with each of the guys. This time it’s the Salt and Pepper twins.

Ariel and the guys got to experience Halloween for the first time. It was heartbreaking to find out there were some that never got to experience this holiday. It was heartwarming to see their excitement not only Ariel’s but the guys too. However, all that excitement came to a screeching halt when Able’s insecurities reared up its ugly head. I loved how Ariel handled things.

Did I say I loved how Ariel has a way of handling each of the brothers especially Quinton. This was a great short read. I am so excited to see what will happen next.

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

Heads up! By the time I have written this review, I have read this book twice.  Yes friends TWICE!!

So much happens in this book like our Pepper Twin feeling less than his brother.  Like our Salt Twin getting angry at his twin for upsetting their Pretty Girl annnnnd of course Quint being a dominant jackass…wait never mind I love him when he is dominant…ok an over stepping jackass because he forgets Ariel is in control of the 7 relationships…not him.

I love Quint for trying give Ariel good memories of all the holidays she missed as a child.  I also love that he goes over the top in creating these memories that generally make her wanna punch him in the face…LOL  But *Dreamy sigh* he is Quint the Coven Leader.  Taking care of his family is his job and he takes it very serious!

Abel is having an issue with missing Ariel but doesn’t know how to tell her because he feels less then the others including his brother.  The scene with Ariel and Abel fighting broke my heart because she loves him so much and he is just as insecure as she is with all this love stuff.

What scenes I loved the most : the guys feeling a bit freer to touch Ariel and them letting her know they are ready and willing for “more” *Wink* but the showdown with Dash, Quint and Ariel at the end of the book about how “ready” she is….a speechless Quinton is a rare thing!!!!

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

 

Hilarious quick read! If you need a pick me up then this is the book for you. Wicked has decided to move her relationship along with Thorne but overreacts when she sees something without an explanation. Her and Thorne are on the fritz but Bruce is there to back Wicked up. Bruce has got to be one of my favorite characters ever! LOL! Once things get calmed down as neither Wicked nor Thorne are ready to give up on each other they are faced with another bit of excitement! We get more background on Wicked and Thorne both and a wonderful ending to start another installment! Bring it on! Can’t wait!

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New Yrk Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Holy crap on a cracker!!!  Gah!!  This book!!!! #Anxiety #NeedADrink #GodIsHeSexy

Sterling is so alpha, so domineering and so yummy yet I know he is going to break my heart at some point in this series!!  I can already feel it.  There are so many secrets and things he isn’t telling Kennedy/Araneae my anxiety is through the roof!!!  But can we talk about how much of an ass he is and yet he only followed her instruction…Snicker……the airplane scene is the BEST!!!!

Kennedy was thrown a huge curve ball in the beginning of the story and we know once the Sparrow family finds her things will go dark and bad.  Ugh but why does bad have to come in such a yummy package!!!   I feel for her because she is a caring person and it seems caring for others is the weakness that will get her killed.  I only hope she can finally listen to Sterling and realize he is the one trying to protect her from others who want to harm her….or is he?????????

This story is an amazing set up for what is surely to come.  The final scene has me going “Oh snap!!” I mean gahhhh!!!!  I am dying to know what exactly will happen because it seems Sterling didn’t tell our girl the whole story about what is going on and what is happening.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5 by Teresa Gabelman

 

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5

On the run since the murder of her parents, time has come for Leda Kingsman to take her rightful place as pack leader. First she needs to fight for what was stolen from her and her little brother, Sam.

A shifter without a pack, Taz Whelan worked his way into the Lee County Wolves as a tracker. Always the loner, Taz never found anyone he wanted to spend more than five minutes with. That’s until stubborn Leda entered his world.

As Leda leaves the Lee County Wolves under false pretenses, Taz lets her go, a decision that haunts him. When he discovers the true reason and what she has been keeping from them all, nothing will stand in his way as he searches for her before the forbidden secrets she holds takes her from him forever.

 

Goodreads

 

Taz and Leda! One of my favorite couples! This story is full of suspense, drama and intense passion (sexual and non-sexual). This one hits home with me a bit as I see a lot of myself in Leda. She wants to do what is right, she believes it is her fight alone, and doesn’t ask anyone for help. She has become a strong woman and has decided it is time to avenge her family and help her family’s pack. The pack that is rightfully hers. As she goes out on this quest of hers she runs into a couple of familiar faces from her past. In the meantime while she is trying to get a plan together to go after her uncle, Taz has sought out Steve from the VC Warriors to help him find Leda. The dynamic between Taz and Steve is snarky and witty. These two are freaking hilarious! As the story unfolds we find out so much about Leda’s past and what has been recently going on with her family’s pack. We find out the truth about just how terrible and evil her uncle really is. She also finds out that blood doesn’t always mean family. She has Taz and Steve at her back as well as the Lee County Wolves and VC Warriors. I am so incredibly happy that Taz and Leda can address the chemistry between themselves. But Taz has to look out because when everyone else catches wind of him and Leda the guys all come forward to give him a hard time. And the dynamic between Taz and Sam is super heartwarming. By the end of the book Leda really understands what it is to have and be part of a true family. There are so many ups and downs in the story that you can’t help but keep turning the pages. I am looking forward to more of the Lee County Wolves!!
