#NewRelease #Review – Mine by Elena M. Reyes

Mine

In Miami, I’m royalty. The beginning and the end.
I’m the truth my queen will never escape.

Thiago Rivera De Leon doesn’t believe in second chances, and I never show mercy to those stupid enough to cross me. Loyalty wins you favors, but trying to overthrow the city’s king will find you with one of my bullets between the eyes.

A simple promise I keep while abiding by two rules:

I don’t forgive. I don’t forget.

And after spending the last five years behind bars, I’m out with two goals in mind…

Kill the bastards responsible.

Reclaim my Luna.


Goodreads


I received this book from the author.

Oh hottie Elena how I love your worlds. They are sexy and suspenseful.  They are hawt and steamy but also with a great plot and amazing twists.

This book does not disappoint at all ya’ll!!

So 5 years and our girl is not happy.  She has no idea why Thiago walked away.  But now is back and back in big way.  He is a man looking for revenge and to get his girl back!!  He will not stop until Luna is his again and everyone has paid.

OK if you read Elena you know her alphas are ALPHA right??  Well friends he will not disappoint ya at all.

Thiago and his story …..he was in prison and he is coming back to reclaim his Luna.  Yeah ok so he was caught in bed with another woman but he was set up and he was keeping her safe.  See her family and his family are not cool with one another since they are both crime families and enemies!!  Luna knows things don’t seem to add up but she is worried.

The plot twists of this story were amazing read.  Luna and Thiago were great characters.  There were lots of things that happen to keep this roller coaster of a story going.  Its another great read for anyone who loves Elena’s works.

Elena M. Reyes is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.

As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art: whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure, but it wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world.

She’s a short and sassy Latina with an adorable pup, a kiddo that keeps her on her toes, and a husband who claims she’ll cause him to go bald prematurely. Lol

#NewRelease #Shifters #Dragons #2ndChance – Ashes To Flames (Sparks of Desire #4) by Valerie Twombly

Ashes To Flames (Sparks Of Desire #4)

Learning to trust is something Reese can’t seem to get a grasp on. Every time he tries, he gets burned. When sexy Brooke walks back into his life, the firefighter puts up a wall of resistance that will keep him from making the same mistake twice. Problem is he loved her once, and she walked away. Now she’s asking for forgiveness and he’s not sure he can give it.

Being a mix of dragon and human presents its challenges. Even more demanding is Brooke’s shifter father who she can’t seem to say no to. When an unforeseen event forces her to run away from love, and back home to daddy, she doesn’t think she will ever see Reese again. Coming back to Kirkwood means facing what she left behind and questioning what her future holds.

Old emotions threaten to resurface, but things are more complicated than before. Reese can’t forgive and Brooke’s father demands she marries someone else. Trust and loyalty rip these two apart, but sometimes it only takes a spark to create a flame from ash and change destiny forever.

THIS BOOK IS A STAND ALONE STORY.


Goodreads


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

I am such a huge fan of shifter books and I love a great dragon story so when I saw this book, I snagged it.

Reese is totally hating in women thanks to his awesome ex wife Megan…please not that is a full sarcastic sentence because she is totally not awesome.  To sleep with your husbands’ brother is kinda not cool…se why I say she is not awesome??  Any who, Brooke and Reese have some back story of a few nights of “friends with benefits” sleepovers.  Well in the past Brooke up and left which kinda made Reese a grumpy man yet again.  Seems he was falling hard for Brooke.

Brooke is a hot mess.  She is a half shifter annnd she finds out she is a very special half shifter.  She is the QUEEN Shifter and the legendary Dragon Shifter who everyone has been waiting for.  When Brooke’s dad finds out he decided she needed to marry a “proper” full blooded dragon.  EXCEPT, wellllll…….Brooke has gone and fallen in love with Reese too.

Those two have some serious communication issued however they sure can express themselves fine in the bedroom.  Well again, due to lack of communication, they have a falling out buuuut not before Brooke ‘s Dragon leaves Reese with a small parting gift…..wanna know? READ THE BOOK!!

Wanna know what else happens to Reese before he can try to claim his women??  WELP you gotta read the book people.  Seriously this book was a fast and great read.

Reese and Brooke are a great couple to read about and I loved their story immensely!!

#WOTR20 #ReleaseDay #Review – Control Us, Next Generation #1 by JM Walker

 
Title: Control Us (Next Generation, #1)
Author: J.M. Walker 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 16, 2020 
Cover Designer: Just Write. Creations
Zach
She was innocent. Passionate. Fierce. After Luna Stone and I went from friends to lovers, my only purpose was showing her how worthy I was. But how could I convince her when I didn’t believe it myself? I craved her touch and her smiles but most of all, her heart. I vowed to protect her and show her father that I could be the man for his daughter. I pushed. She pulled. And when all was said and done, I’d have to go through an even higher power to prove that I deserved her… Myself.
 Luna
He was quiet. Withdrawn. Intense. Zach Porter and I had been friends since we were kids, but it had never amounted to anything more than that. Until now. But as close as we were getting, he was still closed off. He protected his heart and put up walls, even though he had no reason to. He shoved. I grabbed hold and never let go. If I didn’t fight for what was ours, he’d succumb to his demons and believe their vicious words telling him that he’s not good enough. To give up. On us.
 

I received this book from the author.

What a hell of a ride do we go on in this story.

Zachary is a boy with a past.  We know he has the same darkness in him which is why Coby and Brogan adopt him.  They can see the same darkness in him that they have.  They know what he will need to control his darkness.

Luna is her dads everything.  He loves her and his son, Vice Jr.  He and Creena will do anything to make sure she is happy and healthy.  Luna is the sweet, innocent one in the bunch of all the kids.  She is the one who has loved Zachary since she first met him.  She isn’t afraid of him and wants to be his everything.

Zach has looked at Luna like a kid but one night he soon sees her as MORE and that scares the hell out of him.  She is his best friend, his confident, his one true light in the darkness.  She never judges him for his countless women or man whoring ways.  When he finally opens his eyes and accepts what she is giving him, they combust into heat and chemistry.

People these two…sweet baby Jesus…the chemistry.  So many times, I was cheering and then a cockblock would happen and I felt jut as frustrated at they did.  LOL  I was like GET A DAMN ROOM ALREADY!!

Luna and Zach have a few issues to deal with.  His fear that he isn’t enough thanks to Luna’s dad and his own personal demons.  Luna’s afraid her inexperience and her jealousy will be the cause of their breakup.  The two fight for what they have and who they want to be with.

This is a great story about overcoming your flaws and personal demons to see the person you really are and what everyone else sees you to be.

#NewRelease #ARC #NewToMeAuthor #Review – Dangerous Desires by Dawn Altieri

Dangerous Desires

Three years after Emma Sloane’s wealthy fiance’s mysterious death, she’s finally ready to move on and pursue her own dreams. But her plans are derailed when she’s attacked outside her New York City apartment in what she thinks is a random violent incident. Then other women who look just like her start turning up dead…

Homicide Detective Jake Quinn is haunted by the one case he couldn’t solve. When he’s put in charge of a new high-profile murder case, he interviews a victim who escaped a similar attack—and to his shock it’s Emma, the former fiancée of his unsolved murder victim.

Neither expects the sparks of attraction between them. But the killer escalates, clearly targeting Emma, and Jake’s job is on the line. Can he solve this case before it’s too late for both of them?


Goodreads



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

I saw an author I love sharing the sign up for an ARC copy of this book.  I looked the blurb over and thought this looked like a great read.  I knew the author who was sharing the sign up writes amazing stories, so I jumped.  I was super excited Dawn shared a copy and jumped right in when I had the opportunity to read it.

This story is all about Emma and the cray circumstances of her life the last 3 years.  She was supposed to be married to Justin, but he was killed and the detective on the case was unable to solve his murder.  She felt a bit embarrassed about noticing how hot the detective was given her fiancée has just been killed but…hey he is hawt.

Detective Jake Quinn never stopped thinking about Emma.  She was so sweet, innocent, and kind but also beautiful. He always felt terrible he couldn’t solve her fiancés murder, but the leads all dried up.  Now 3 years later this beautiful woman shows up again in his path but this time someone is trying to kill HER!!

The chemistry starts to brew immediately even though they both are trying to deny what is THERE for everyone else to see and comment on.  Jake is trying to do everything he can to keep her safe even when the attacker is still trying to get her attention and killing others due to his rage at not having HER!!

The story of who done it was constantly keeping me on my toes.  Every time you thought you knew who, boom you were wrong and then WHAMO we discover who it was, and I was shook!!  I mean WHAT!!!

I enjoyed the story of the couple and watching their love story play out.  I wonder if Lauren and Kevin will get a story because they sure so seem like a good book in the making.

This was the first book from this author according to her final acknowledgements and I would love to read another story when its releases.  The book flow was great.  There were a couple times it started to be more TELLING the story then SHOWING the story.  These scenes would kind of drag but all in all I did enjoy the story.

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #Review #RH #NewRelease #ReleaseDay – Dash:An Ariel Kimber Novella by Mary Martel

Dash: An Ariel Kimber Novella

Dash Flynn always thought he was damaged beyond repair.
Both a mother and a grandmother who had wanted him to be born a female witch, growing up, he was nothing but a disappointment to those around him.
His father had fought for him as best as he could before he disappeared from Dash’s life, leaving him to grow up with the two women they both had hated most in this world.
Years later, Dash thinks his life is finally coming together.
He has his brothers, his coven, and his sweet angel, Ariel. Finally a woman in his life deserving of his love.
But is that enough?
Only time will tell.


Goodreads


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

I think each book I fall more in love with Dash but LAWD don’t let Uncle Quint know I admitted this.  He is super growly at times.

For all of you Dash lovers, this book is just what you wanted and expected.  I am a HUGE fan of these POV books of the men in Ariel’s lives.  I love seeing Ariel with the guys in the large books, but I really love these novellas because we can see Ariel and the guy bonding and growing in love.  We can see them sharing experiences that will be special to them only, but we get to see all the inside details of each relationship.  The large books are full of twists and new drama, but these novellas slow it down for us a bit to see the relationships growing and developing.  Any who that is just my 5 cent opinion.

So Dash….Dreamy sigh ladies….DREAMY SIGH!!!  We finally see more of the way his life was when he was a child and friends….my heart just couldn’t handle it.  We also get to learn a bit about Binx and again my heart!!!

Ariel and Dash are reconnecting in this book because so much has happened and they both feel a bit lost without the other.  They have a special bond…over blood and pain…the others don’t understand but that is what makes their relationship so important and extra special.  Sorry Quint but you gotta just deal with that little bit of information. *pats Quintons head while he pouts*

Again this book is helping us reconnect the two and lawd was it a good reconnection!!  HEEEYY!! *Wink*  But we also see some new things happening…Like the stuff Baxter lets slip and Isobel and Rain plus Rain and the council.  I love how this book ended and can’t wait for the story to continue to unfold.

But friends, I am really really looking forward to Juls and Ariel’s book.  Something about this broody sweetheart makes me again turn my head.  Each layer of this man that is unveiled ….yeah I just kinda sigh…..

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

LAWD!!  Luther!!!  YES PLEASE and gimme more!!

This book has so much happening, so you better be ready because right when you THINK you know. You find out you are so wrong.

Much like alllllll of JM’s books there is a lot of sexy time happening but there is also lot of emotional chemistry bring built between Luther and his pet, Lexi.

Lexi has an idiot of a brother, Charlie, whose bad decisions push her into a corner.  She ends up joining a club to help repay his debt.  While working at the club, she is also spending time with Luther on the side…the same made who wants her brother dead.  Poor girl!  But the attraction she has to both Luther and her Club Master is CRAZY which totally confused our girl.  Too bad that isn’t the only confusion she will be having in this story.

There are so many plot twists and “Who the hell do you trust” questions in this story.  I mean I was messaging JM with guesses because I was so confused with who was good and who was bad but in a good way…OK SO I was wanting spoilers because the stress of not knowing was killing me!!!

I will say this is probably the very first book of hers where I was so in love with both men in Lexi’s life I wasn’t sure who I wanted her with PLUS the twist of Lexi’s life choices had me going “WHAT!!!” and “Oh SNAP!!”

Friends this book is intense.  You will need to sit and read it the entire day. You will not be able to stop because when I stopped to make lunch, I ended up burning it in the oven due to the fact I COULD NOT STOP READING!!!

SO yeah, if you are a fan of her books you will not be disappointed with Luther.  He is everything you love about her alphas and her anti-heroes.

#WOTR20 #5YearFamily #NewRelease #Review – On Broken Wings, The Witness Series Book 7 by H. D’Agostio

Free spirit.
Determined.
Destined for greatness.

These were all words used to describe me once upon a time. I was an elite gymnast on the fast track to success. I sacrificed everything for my future, including a social life. My friends didn’t understand, boys called me frigid, but I would prove them all wrong.

A single date changed it all for me. One night with Nate Carter tipped my entire world tipped my entire world off its axis. Black and white turned to gray as lines were crossed and promises I’d made myself years ago were broken. He sent me into a downward spiral that only my brother could save me from. That is, until I met Evan…

It’s amazing how a few words can change your outlook on life. A kind gesture can make you see the beauty around you, and teach you to believe in yourself. Evan did that… he healed me and taught me to fly again.

Follow Jenni’s journey in On Broken Wings- book 7 in The Witness Series.


Goodreads

Amazon

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion/Review.

What a sad thing…the last book in a series!!  How sad to say good bye to this cast of characters?  Thank goodness for rereads right!!??

We have seen Jenni and Mason’s strong sibling relationship for a few books.  We love her and want to know what happened to her.  We learn a little bit in Mason’s book but seeing it through Jenni’s eyes was hard.  The content is tough, and we do start the book in the past so as to live the trauma Jenni endures.

Evan is a man after this mystery woman who sees Jenni but can’t seem to crack her into accepting more from him.  Evan is charming and patient.  He stays the courses to get to know this sassy, feisty and brilliant woman to give him one dang chance!!  LOL

As the two get closer and build MORE, we see Evan is holding back some truths that will inevitably cause Jenni heartache.  We see Jenni finally opening and freeing herself from the past and everything she went through thanks to the love and support of Evan.  When the two worlds crash and all the secrets are spilled, my heart hurt for Jenni.  I worried, like Mason and the rest of the cast of characters did, about her ability to process it all.  But I hurt for Evan too. He loves Jenni with everything and the thought of hurting her is killing him.

The epilogue is amazing, but the last chapter might have been my favorite. Jenni and Evan made a great read and a great final book in one of my favorite series!!
