Review of Mary Martel’s story by Twinsie Angie

Charmed by Mary Martel

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Mary…girl your stories…what is in that head of yours????  I don’t know but keep with the crazy, fucked-up, sexy as sin, and delicious alpha stories you seem to come up with.

This story is about Clover who has had a wee bit of trauma in her life. She ran for fear of what might happen but now knows its time to return to face her past and help her pack.  Her father, the pack alpha, always knew she would return and had 3 of the sexiest wolves ready to back her upon arrival.  When Clover arrives with little Rosie everyone freaks and soon secrets begin to spill.  Clover is now having to defend her pack from a rival while also slowing her libido down over these 3 sexy guards.

This is another solid story from Mary, and I would love to see more from Clover especially if they spill over into Ariel’s series like the Salt and Pepper Twins did in this novella!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

Cursed Whispers by AJ Renee

Cursed Whispers (Broderick Coven Book 3)

Animals were Max Broderick’s life.

He wasn’t only a veterinarian. He spoke with animals, quite literally, on a daily basis.

He rescued a wolf on the verge of dying and was shocked beyond belief when she turned out to be a beautiful werewolf.

Claudia Lupita wanted two things: her daughter and as many miles as possible separating her and the monster who’d been holding them captive for years.

Determined to protect her, Max enlists help from his closest circle.

Can they overcome her past, or had she lived through too much to accept her mate?

Broderick Coven Series:
Cursed Love
Cursed Sight
Cursed Whispers
Cursed Touch
Cursed Luck

My 5 Star Review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

I will admit. I was curious about Max and his gift to talk to animals. #DogLover I kinda figured he would be my absolute favorite of the Broderick family and I am right. Now if we are talking about the cast of characters in the series, Peter wins hands down, but Max is my favorite sibling.

Max is the sweetest guy who is still coming to terms with his family lineage and powers. He is troubled when he hears someone or something in the woods at Brandy’s baby shower. When he saves a wolf/woman. He is instantly bonded to her. He wants to do all he can to hep her without freaking her out at the same time. He is also freaked out at his reaction to this damaged woman but can’t not be near her.

Claudia is a warrior…that is the only way to describe what she endured and survived. She appreciated the soft and kind man but also had her walls up due to her belief all men are bad. When she sees him for what he really is, a gentleman, she learns to trust him but also worries about what she is feeling for him.

When Max and the pack vow to help her find her daughter and avenge her abuse, she is over her head with emotions for these people. Claudia slowly learns to heal and love while having the support of the pack and the Broderick family at her side.

I have to say this book is my favorite in the series so far. But man, Peter needs to find some love. I feel bad for the alpha. But I am excited for Carter’s book to be next!!

Second and Short by Michel Prince

Second and Short: Book 2 of the Love by the Yard Series

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.
In book two of Love by the Yard: Offensive linemen are considered the silent protectors of the game. Always expected to be there, but never seen by the fans. Whether by accident or circumstance, Dalton Gresham has been known as the Blood Thirsty Bear of the Gridiron since his rookie year. With fans wearing number seventy-seven with fake blood dripped on it, can this giant in football shake his monster status?
Having hidden away at Lost Lake, Wisconsin, the last thing Willeen Fire needed was publicity. The tall, voluptuous woman has a beauty she hides behind flannel shirts and engine grease while staying off the grid. When Dalton first meets Willeen, the last thing he thought was she was a woman in need of protection. But as he falls for her, the natural instinct to protect is screaming in his ears.
Can Dalton stop being the monster he’s been labeled and become the one who will finally save Willeen from the man hunting her?

My 5 star review 

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

The narrator was great in this book. Logan has narrated several books for Michel and I love his ability to change voices. His narration brings you into each story. You get lost in his voice and his reading of the stories.

Dalton was a favorite side character in book 1 so I was happy to see him get a book. Granted I thought he might hook up with Dani’s school friend after the way the two seemed to eye each other. Dalton is a gentle giant who is lost in his “persona” for the Chicago Grizzles. He wants to make a mark, but it seems they want the giant lineman to play a violent man when he is far from violent. When he gets injured, he is sent to cool his heels and recuperate from the injury. He starts off badly right at the start when he “ASSUMES” (we know not to do this right?) that Willie is an old redneck with a dirty flannel. He is stunned stupid when he finds out Willie is the hottie who is getting his cabin ready for his stay. The woman was his perfect size in height and curves.

Willie is enchanted by Dalton and his sweet character but can’t understand why everyone thinks he is an aggressive man. When he finds out his “character” she is surprised and helps him realize being himself is the best way to be. The two start to build a relationship but Willie is so scared of wanting more since she cannot give that. Willie has a past she fears and is frightened to find her.

When the two finally take a step forward, Willie’s past crashes into them. She makes a choice which Dalton is not a fan of but will do anything to get his girl. When you love someone today, tomorrow, forever…you can’t let them go.
Again, I love the fact Michel brings a gritty and vile bad guy to the story. Michel writes great bad guys that you hate and can’t wait to see get their butt kicked!! LOL

His One True Mate by Miranda Lynn

His One True Mate (The Night Shift Series Book 1)

Billionaire tech genius, Leo Lancaster is accustomed to hiding his truth behind mankind’s materialistic comforts.
But no more. The lion within him is on the prowl for a mate, and his primal instincts refuse to be ignored. Driven by his shifter side, he embarks on a journey across the globe to claim that fated bond.

Thankfully, he doesn’t have to venture far. Sauntering by in heels and a curve-hugging pencil skirt, everything about Katrina calls to him. To Leo’s great regret, she needs a bit of convincing.

Katrina Denmark is on the run from a past determined to destroy her.
By focusing her life on helping others, she battles to overcome the fears that haunt her. Finally, she’s starting to feel safe. In control. Until the lioness side of her begins aching to submit to Leo. Terrified of her own growing desires, Katrina is deliberating over whether to take a chance on Leo when the deranged monster she’s spent years trying to escape catches up to her.

With her life and freedom on the line, will Katrina allow Leo to stand beside with the ferocious love of a mate? Or will her own fears force her to face the looming darkness alone?

My 5 star review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

This series is a MUST read for me….a PNR reader at the core. I love the characters and the way Miranda keeps the storyline fresh. Each book I feel she brings something new and some kinda new evil that the pack must overcome. This pack might be spread throughout the globe, but they are family through and through.

Oh Leo. He and his lion have been on my radar for a long time. We have watched him help Casey and her new pack. We know he helped Jerome build his pack but what about Leo?? When will he get his love and find happiness?? Well a certain therapist he secured for Casey’s pack seems to be the one who will give him all he needs and more….love, companionship, sass, and heartache. Yes, I said heartache.

Leo has A LOT to deal with in regard to Katerina AKA Kat. She is a broken woman who helps other broken women but never really looks to heal herself completely. Kat has been through some stuff and now when she thinks she has found a place to belong, along comes Leo making her lioness want MORE while her human side is petrified. Her experiences with alphas and mates have not been good. Casey and Mack are a strange concept given what she has seen growing up.

Kat’s father was a power-hungry alpha who treated the females in his pack terrible. What she endures is horrifying but her ability to escape and mend herself just enough to help others is amazing. However, Leo sets her off kilter and she soon is at war with herself over this alpha male. That hussy lioness in her sees Leo for all he is but her human side is so afraid she pushes.

Their story is full of chemistry and is action packed. When Kat’s past shows up and tries to ruin her future, she is a mess. Leo can’t handle the fact his mate is in fear and will do everything to protect what is his…his love…his future…his mate…HIS LIFE!!!

Friends, this book is seriously a perfect addition to the series. I am so excited at where it looks to be headed and ya’ll DJ is hella delicious!! Just saying. I said it first here!!!!

Dirty Crown by Mary Martel

Dirty Crown

I always held hope that the day I left the compound would be the day I found freedom.

I was wrong.
My future had never really belonged to me. My father laid claim to it the day I was born, and I had been a stupid, naïve girl to wish for anything different.

As the heir to my father’s immense empire, my crown sits heavily on my head as I navigate my way through dealings with the criminal world while trying to stay alive.

Unfortunately for me, my crown and my hands are forced to get dirty along the way. Thankfully, I’m not expected to do it alone. Roarke, my deadly bodyguard who’s been by my side since I was six, is my shadow and always will be. I also now have Alessio, the cold, tattooed hottie, Roman, who conceals everything with fakeness that comes far too easily for him, and the alluring but sweet brothers, Tito and Enzo.

When bullets start flying, and people begin dying, my five guys not only stand behind me as the queen of their empire, but they also prove they have every right to be there by getting their hands just as dirty as my own.

Dirty Crown is a full-length, standalone reverse harem novel. This book is recommended for readers 18+. It contains sexual situations, swearing, violence, and some dark themes. It also contains MM as well as MFM.

My 5 star review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

I am a Mary whore. I will read all she writes because they are dark, gritty, bloody, sexy as fuck, hilarious, and wrong all at the damn same time. I think I need therapy, but her books are all I ever  want in life. The crazier the character, the more I love them. The more broken the male, the more I need to have them in my stash of book boyfriends. This group of men do not disappoint…broke, alpha, arrogant, and sexy as hell men dominate Vallie’s life.

Valentina has had a life of squalor with her bodyguard Roarke to protect her in this compound. Her father is THE Mafia boss, and he loves her so much he treats her terrible. One day she is sprung from her hell to be thrust into a new roll…his puppet with his picked “husbands” for her. Yes, plural husbands. She is not willing to play his puppet, but she goes along with it until she and Roarke can figure it all out. When absolute chaos ensues, she becomes the head of THE FAMILY with her men. Friends, there is a grenade scene that absolutely cracked me up…..I mean I had mad Boss Bitch Vibes all day long for Vallie.

I loved all of her men. Roarke is delicious as her boytoy/bodyguard/lover. Enzo is the sweet one who is just as deadly who enjoys time with Roarke as well as Vallie. Roman with his crazy laughter and boy next door charm who is also scary as hell. Alessio who rules the house and the guards with brute force only we could love. Tito is a bit of mess who needs to figure stuff out but his love for Vallie is never ever to be questioned. But I did wanna nut punch him a time or two. However, If I could also see a Hawk enter this harem, it would be day made but I don’t think the MC President would be willing to share with the guys…darn. I guess just being her bestie will have to do.

This book has so much going on and I loved all the violence and grit, but all the sexy time was just as delicious!!! If you’re a Mary fan this will make your list for sure!!!

Compromised by H.R. Savage

COMPROMISED: An Adult Post-Apocalyptic Romance (Ruins of Playa Azul Book 2)

We left our home in a blaze of fire…

Gunner and I clung to the hope that we were leading our group to safety. However, in the unfamiliar mountains we find something we weren’t expecting–a hidden group of people…and someone I thought was dead.

Creekside Camp offers the promise of new beginnings for our injured and hungry people, and Gunner and I are thrust into a new normal. The idea of an ordinary life with him hung in front of me like the proverbial carrot.

But secrets threaten to unravel our tentative happiness and we are suddenly confronted with threats from not only the dead–but the living as well.

Will Gunner and I finally get a chance toward happiness? Or will the secrets compromise everything we’ve worked so hard for?

NOTE: COMPROMISED is the second book in the Ruins of Playa Azul duet. You MUST read CAPTURED prior to understand the plot and characters.

My 5 star review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

GGGGIIIIIRRRRL and Boys was I excited for this book!! I love Zombies and book 1 blew me right out of the damn water. I have been on pins and needles waiting for this book!!!

Ok look Gunnar….Can I just say I get why Thea was on him as often as possible because DAYUM he is all that and a bag of chips. He is the most deliciously alpha male in this book series. No offense Jason buuuut your small potatoes.
Thea is the bad ass chick you wanna have as your bestie if the world goes to crap. She is the tough as nails person who will hug you and smack you upside the head to get your butt in gear and move.

The book starts up right where book 1 ended. The rag tag team of misfits are trying to get to the mountains after defeating the bad peoples…ok monsters…in book 1. Bad people are way too light of a term for them. They stumble into an unprotected camp and Thea’s past is in her face before she knows it. Talk about crazy and hard. The leader of the new camp is friendly but…uhm…how do I say it…a sexist pig?? *GRUNT* Women do women’s work, and the manly man protect the little women folk. *GRUNT* So yeah if you get the drift on Thea that doesn’t go well with her…LOL LAWD do not get me started on VI!! BAHAHAHA She is a load of crazy and I love her so much.

When Gunnar and Thea are attacked by someone in the camp…yeah tense is a word you can use to describe the next few chapters. Finding out that there is a secret that has been withheld from the camp is also something they have to deal with and decide what to do.

I am going to always hope for more from this series because I love zombies!! But Jason and Vi…Come on…a little novella. I need to know how she wormed her way into his broken heart!!

Just One Kiss (Oh Tequila 4)  by CA Harms

https://amzn.to/3pwBXtA

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/43070788-just-one-kiss?from_search=true&from_srp=true&qid=s9FqCDabDW&rank=44

What do you get when you mix Tequila with a house full of rowdy Fraternity brothers who have no boundaries? A cucumber, a pink thong, and a bottle of lube. Oh yeah, and super glue. There is always super glue…

Parties, drinking, and plenty of mornings where you can’t remember what you did the night before…that was my life.

Yet, there was one memory that lingered in my mind. Ten minutes in the woods with Palmer that got too intense to ignore.

But ten minutes with her wasn’t enough. It would never be enough.

She’s a force, one that swept in unexpectantly, knocked me on my ass and left me with an intense craving. Palmer tried to fight it with every fiber in her being, but I could see the desire in her eyes. That curiosity that lived inside of her, wondering what it would be like if she just gave in…again.

I had to convince her that our time together wasn’t a mistake. That she wants me as much as I want her. We share a connection, a bond, that has changed me in ways I never expected. She saved me. And to think…

It all started with Just One Kiss.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

I freaking loved this tight ball of sexual tension relationship. Corbin is bound to get under more then Palmer’s skin, he wants all of her and little does he know she wants him too just as much but she’ll never let him know that. When a horrible accident happens sending Corbin into a spiral of drugs, drinking and falling into a black hole, Palmer is the only one who can pull him out of it and bring him back. When her past has the key to bringing him back, but it’s the one secret she isn’t ready to let out of the vault yet. These two are amazing and I just loved them so much.

https://amzn.to/3lyDQDK

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23524116-ready-to-were

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

Tanner-

She was beautiful.

Loved.

Strong.

After hiding away for six months with just my dog to keep me company, I was forced out of the shadows only to end up in the arms of an enemy.

Beatrix Lister saved my life. I had been taking care of myself for so long, I didn’t know how to ask for help, but she refused to go down without a fight.

She was warm where I was frigid.

She was kind and caring where I was a cold-blooded monster.

I did things to survive.

I battled the evils of the world to live.

I didn’t deserve her heart but fell in love with her anyway.

As much as I wanted to be with her, I needed answers and I would do anything to get them.

Even if it meant breaking the heart of the only woman I had ever loved.

~

-Bee-

He was lonely.

Intense.

Brave.

Tanner Horsch came into my life unexpectedly. He was like a tornado, ripping up everything in its path.

There was something about him that I craved.

His touch. His words. His need to survive.

But as we were getting to know each other, he still had walls up.

He refused to let me in knowing my family didn’t approve of him.

I refused to let him go.

After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, he escaped and eventually he ran right into my arms.

He was the villain of someone else’s story, but he was the hero of mine.

I just prayed that he could see that not all monsters are truly evil.

Before it was too late, and he gave himself to the enemy.

My family.

I was given this book and this is my honest opinion

Where do I start this slow burn is everything I didn’t know I needed. Bee just wants to be see as an adult and not as a child, when all she’s ever been is sheltered her whole life. Tanner was at the wrong place at the kind right time to put together some missing pieces after a member of another MC club got killed the one witness that never lies a near by security camera have him at the scene making him look bad but can he help the club find out who really pulled the trigger. This couple makes you root for all things good in the world and when people try to keep them apart it only brings them closer. You will absolutely love this story with all the interruptions and feelings.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review but I did purchase the audio book to listen too.

I am a sucker for a shifter series.  I also loved this authors dystopia book and so I politely begged for this book as well.  LOL  I will say I am very excited for a new to me series to continue to read.

The narration for this story was enjoyable.  Sometimes, you can get a narrator who you just don’t think fits the story, but Skylar Summers hit each voice perfectly.  I really enjoyed her Scottish accents.

Before I start the story review I will say there are times I felt the story did drag a bit BUT since this is the first book in the series, I chalked it up to world and character building.  The excessive details about random things would pull me out of the story at times but over all I still liked the story and am ready for book 2.

Killian finds a feral shifter who is being held in a human zoo/sanctuary when he goes to get her.  Right from the start he knows she is different but does not understand how or why.  We meet Catrina who has been through the biggest loss of her life and is scared.  She was hidden away while her parents were being killed and then ran…for 6 years in wolf form.

We see Killian, Jamie and the rest of the pack welcome Catrina and try to help her acclimate to the human world again.  We also see the chemistry between Killian and Cat.  Its very instant they have a drive to touch and see each other all the time.

We soon deal with pack jealousy over Killian’s obvious affections for Cat.  We see Cat making friends and forming family/pack bonds even if she denies it.  But Cat is looking for revenge against those who killed her parents.

We soon meet the “bad” people but don’t understand what is happening except we know they want Cat.  I will say as the story starts to unfold with who is looking for Cat, her past is opened up and we learn about her parents and life pre-murder, you cant help but feel sorry for her and all her loss.  However, seeing Killian stand and support her even if his wolf gets a smidge jealous made me giggle….oh Killian.

The end of the story was super interesting.  I liked the twist of what made Cat “special”.  I also look forward to Aiden and learning more about him. But first up is Jamie in book 2 and I feel like Mr. Playboy isn’t loving being single after all he says.

Author H.R. Savage (Heather) started reading romance at an age that made her father cringe as she tried to hide the cover behind her hands. She technically finished writing her first book in Junior High, where it mysteriously disappeared in a reformatting incident. Due to the encouragement of her English teachers at her small town school in La Verne, California, she never lost her love for the art. Now a woman who swears by the power of coffee, Chinese food, and wine (not necessarily in that order), she decided it was time to create stories from the characters in her head.

When Heather isn’t writing, outlining, or pinning pictures of hot ‘character inspirations’ on Pinterest™, she is spending time with her three beautiful children and handsome husband.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series 1) by Robyn Peterman

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.

A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable.

See Me (The Novus Pack Series Book 1) by [Jayne, M.]

Throughout history, The Lady, Goddess of the Lycan world, has gifted werewolf packs with humans who carry her mark. Theodora Morrissey’s plans to return to college for her graduate degree are ended when she is awakened by an otherworldly voice on a rarely used airstrip in Nebraska. Injured and disoriented, she has no idea the discoloration on her back has marked her as a Seer, and that she is now a possession—and the prisoner—of the Novus Pack of Lycans.

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?

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

Before I start this review, I am going to let you in on a little secret.  I am a paranormal whore.  I love love love paranormal AND shifters are like the icing on the cake for me.  So, if you write a paranormal and I read it, I will judge/rate harshly.  Its my favorite genre and its my go to read when I want something to read.  With all that stated up front, you gotta know what I am about to say is deep and true to my soul……I. Loved. This. Book!!  Like WTF!!  It blew me outta the damn water.  I will admit I was a bit skeptical about the whole Lady Goddess stuff at the beginning.  I wondered if I would dig it or if it would be something I found to be an OK read.  FRIENDS, this book rocked my world!!  Like legit, ROCKED ME HARD!!!!

I absolutely loved the world M. Jayne (Melanie) created.  I loved her mythology.  I loved her side characters and seriously I am hard crushing over Lore BUT I am also scared outta my mind at him.  Raider Black is our main character and he is so tough and bad ass but so tender when he wants to be but also please remember he is uber bad ass!!!  Theo is thrust into this NEW world.  She stumbles but runs into it with eyes wide open.  When she is given her new title in the Pack, she tried to be 100% the best she can be.   Her friends Solle and Conal are the best companions for her.  They are loyal to Black but guide her and help her understand the human world is not at all like the Pack’s world.

The story was so wonderfully written.  I seriously kept saying “one more chapter before bed” and then the next thing I knew it was 11PM and I and 10% of the book left!!  Might as well just read it and appreciate the reason for being grumpy the next day was because of the wonderful story telling.  I thought the flow of the story was amazing.  You were always wondering what would happen next.  I know the angst of the two main characters fighting their pull and draw to one another was amazing.  When they finally give in to one another it only made their bond THAT much stronger.  The character banter was hilarious, but the emotional draw of the characters made me so excited for this new series!

I am so excited for the next book and wonder where the story will take us because I am totally hooked on the Novus Pack!!  #TeamNovus  #TeamLore  #TeamSweetBabyJesusThoseWereHotScenes

Stephen: The Omega's Curse

Stephen:

I don’t know how much more I can take. In the span of two weeks I have been told I am a rare omega, yanked from my pack by an old crone who says I need this journey to discover the powers I hold within Then the real bomb is dropped. I am cursed. When another pack alpha decides to snatch my true mate out from under me, my wolf and I take things into our own hands and call in reinforcements. I promise if that alpha harms a hair on her head, I’ll have his on a platter!

Harper:

Things have gone to hell in a hand basket quick after Hallister becomes the new alpha of the River Pack. I must go against everything I am and everything I believe in to save my pack. I was resigned to do what is needed until my true mate shows up. Now my head and heart are at odds. The alpha of a border pack snatches me to use as a bargaining chip against my mate and the original omega. I will not become a pawn in this war. Now will I allow another person I love to sacrifice themselves to save me.

First and foremost, I have loved all the shifters in the Black Mountain Pack. Each time I read one I think that it is my absolute favorite. I think that I love them all differently as each one is so different but their stories all overlap. I really enjoy how each one has their own journey and path with each one intertwining into the next. Stephen’s journey is no different but I think it is deeper than some of the others. Stephen is pulled from his pack to go on a journey with Adele. This is a journey of self discovery as he is coming into his Omega powers. On top of this he finds his true mate. The only thing is, they have been connecting in the dream world and things get real shifty when they finally meet in person. Harper is a strong, independent woman and the daughter of the true Alpha who is deceased. The new alpha is power hungry and has a claim on Harper because of her status. Stephen and Harper cannot announce they are mates at this time because of the turmoil in her pack and the new power hungry alpha, Halister. Her pack has also not seen a true mate in many years and thinks it’s all myths and legends now. Things really go haywire when Harper is kidnapped by a rival pack who wants to use her as leverage for her mate’s omega powers. 

Stephen and Harper’s story will suck you in from the start. It is fast paced with no dull moments. From the craziness of the power hungry alpha to the sexual angst between Stephen and Harper to the insanity of Harper’s captors….it just keeps going and going and going….This story does not disappoint and is an absolute must read!

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What a GREAT addition to the continued ARC of this story!!!  OMG  Zeke and Dakota were awesome!!

Zeke is a baby brother in the mix of 7 brothers, so I did not feel we knew a lot about him other then he was a goofball.  So, seeing him take the reigns to protect his ever-growing family made him stand out.  His brothers are all mated and now daddies, so he jumps to try and find THE BOOK they need to keep the pack safe.

Dakota is one tough a$$ chick!!  Her character was amazing.  She is one sister-in-law or daughter-in-law the Hallows will be leaning on when the final war happens.  She has seen all the bad things the vampires are capable of and she has risen from the trauma to be a vampire hunter.

When she stalks into a bar and sees Zeke, they are both stunned and attracted instantly.  When they have a fun night, they wake up, and Zeke has some explaining to do.  We all know what they have buuuut Dakota is not a big believer is fate let alone a fated mate!!

The story goes on and we see Zeke being Dakota’s “side kick” to track down the Vampires with the book they need.  Soon they discover the vampires also have another little hidden gem for world domination so they, of course, decide to ruin that plan as well.

The story is fast paced.  We learn about a society of humans who work together to stop vampires and other bad creatures.  We learn about Dakotas past and hurt which prevents her from moving forward.  We also see Zeke becoming the selfless hero all the Hallows become to protect their mate.

The story was a great addition to the series.  I look forward to each installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.  Baby brother Josh will soooo fall for his mate and we will see what happens with the overall arc of the story.

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

When I met Stephen I was so in love with is strong persona.  I loved meeting him in Wyatt’s book and so looked forward to him getting his HEA plus learning about the Omega power he was given.

Stephen and Harper’s love story is full of twists and turns with rival alphas and wars brewing.  They sure don’t have an easy time of its for sure.  The two also meet under unusual circumstances from Stephen’s Omega abilities.  I have to say I loved the way the two meet and already start to form their true mate bond.

Stephen has been lucky to live with a happy pack and Harper had until….her alpha is killed and another alpha is forcing his will upon her to be his mate.  Harper is much loved by her pack mates so she is doing everything she can to help save her pack while NOT losing herself in the process.

Stephen is so confused.  His heart says to rush in and save his mate but with his Omega abilities he must learn to walk that fine line of safety and protection for all even if his mate is not safe.

Seeing the two work together and build a relationship of trust which soon turns to love and respect was amazing.  I gotta say I am kinda looking Marcus over and wondering if he will be getting a book because he suuuuure is up my ally!!!

The story has you prepared to go one way and then BOOM another plot twist was thrown in the story.  I was like WHOA!!  Good one Miranda!!

Basically, what I am trying to say without giving away any part of this awesome plot is, you need to read some Stephen.  All you Wyatt lovers like me will be excited to see him and Natalie return.  I love seeing those two and seeing their love story further evolving!!

#WOTR20 #Review – Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison) by Katie May

Blindly Indicted (Paranormal Prison)

I lived my life as a prisoner.

I’ve always been told stories about the real world, but I haven’t seen it for myself. All I have ever known is pain.

And darkness.

They tell me I have been blind since birth.

When I make my escape, I think freedom is finally within my grasp…

Until I’m captured by the paranormal police for a murder I didn’t commit. Apparently, I have powers—powers I have always suspected myself of having.

Normal people can’t see through other people’s eyes, right?

Thrust into Nightmare Penitentiary, I meet a group of hard, alpha, psychotic inmates who believe I’m the answer to all their prayers. Me? I’m just trying to survive and figure out what it means to live. My new home isn’t just a prison, but a labyrinth with horrors around every corner.

But what if the cost of my life is my freedom? Am I willing to trade one cage for another?

Welcome to Nightmare Penitentiary where you come in handcuffs and leave in a body bag.

This is NOT a bully romance. These men are all hardened criminals and extreme alphas, but they adore their female. Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naïve female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses and a group of psychotic, murderous males. This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a reverse harem romance.

BookBub

Welcome to the Land of Misfit Toys…only for Monsters. I loved the concept of this story and was sucked right in once I read the blurb. I am rounding this up to 4 because there were some really amazing parts of the story. I started the book and was completely engrossed, I mean completely sucked in. We start right when Nina is escaping a hell hole. She is blind but can see through other’s eyes. She has been held captive from a very young age. When the author puts in the blurb “ Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naive female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses…”, this is exactly what you will get. Nina is smart but really is painfully naive and at times I had to roll my eyes at just how dense she was. But we get beyond this, she is being framed for a murder she didn’t commit and is deposited in Nightmare Penetentiary, a labryinth prison for paranormal criminals. Little does she know, her best friend, Kai, who was imprisoned with her in the hell hole she escaped from, ends up being king of the prison she is deposited in. But from here we meet all of his comrades, right hand men, lackeys, whatever you want to call them. They are all equally as twisted and insane as the next but all very different from one another. The one thing they have in common is Nina. They are all drawn to her. Here is where the book lost me for a bit…We have to get to know her harem. Which is great and what we need to do but some of it took much more time than needed and sometimes felt a little unnecessary to the story itself. I was expecting more of the “action” and “story” while getting to know these crazy men with all their hawtness and alpha crazy coming out, but it seemed like the “action” and “story” were put on hold while getting to know them. However, the storyline amps back up again and takes you into a lot of “WTFs” and “where the hell did that come from?” type of stuff. So, it indeed drew me back in and turned out to have some crazy twists and turns that I needed. Although this isn’t one of my absolute favorites, I did enjoy the story and am intrigued enough to check out other stories from this author.

Hello!
Well, I’m supposed to talk about something interesting. So I have two cats and two dogs (killing it). I am a romance author. I love to write and read anything with a strong, female lead and the men who love her.
