#WOTR2019Attending #Shifter #Review Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Book 5) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5 by [Gabelman, Teresa]

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

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

It’s  Leda’s turn, after 4 books we finally get to hear her story with her words.

When we first met Leda all those books ago, LOL, she was a child hurting from the loss of her parents, now she is a woman ready to right a horrible wrong and save those that were once her pack.

Leaving without telling anyone in the Lee County Pack, including her Alpha, is what she does thinking that she is keeping more people from being harmed by her evil uncle.

Taz is a new pack member, but has only had eyes for Leda since joining and since when he became pack she was with our favorite Invisible funny man Steve she was out of reach.

Now, there is nothing stopping him from having her except that she has left the safety of the pack and is headed straight into danger and he will go after her to insure that she comes home safe.

Man, Teresa gives us so much in Leda’s book.  We have a killer wolf, our favorite Warriors make a appearance, over protective father figures, old friends both good and sort of good, fighting of good versus evil, and the finding of mates.

There was so much packed into it that it seemed like it was a short read, it was so good.

Leda is such a strong girl to have gone through so much, I really think that she is going to be someone that the younger women of the Lee County Pack can look up to.

Taz is a beautiful person not just to look at, but on the inside too.  Leda and Taz together is nothing short of perfect, they really do go together so much better than she and Steve.

Now we have new pack members in the Lee County pack which means MORE STORIES!!!!!!

Despair. Hunger. Pain. Need.
It started the moment she bumped into me.
Ecstasy. Danger. Seduction. Terror.
She was off-limits, but it didn’t stop me from wanting her.
My life was empty. My thoughts were dark. My heart was stone.
Feeling unwanted for most of my life, I didn’t know where I belonged or what my purpose was. He was all I had until she came along and brought out emotions I never knew were possible. She was innocent. Pure. Untouched. She was the daughter of a rival club member, but that didn’t stop us. It only heightened the desire, the passion we felt. We were happy…until someone she trusted made a move that no one saw coming…

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

Holy hells bells friends.  Strap in for a bumpy, sex filled ride with our favorite Mistress of Teasing!!

Tray…man I loved him in Greyson’s book.  I so wanted to know more about this fun guy.  I was a bit shocked at all that he was hiding from us seeing how fun and light he was with Eve.  He has major layers people.  He is dealing with his guilt over treating his best friend so badly and hoping to salvage their friendship when he meets Zillah.  He is stunned stupid at her beauty and her sassy mouth!!

Zillah has lead a bit of a sheltered life.  Her dad is a bad ass MC President who will not let any man look at his daughter as anything other than HIS LITTLE GIRL!!  She is naïve to the way of the club and to the way of seasoned men but when she sees Tray, she is hooked.  She needs to see where this connection will go.

The two have an insta-love-ish story but it’s also built on mutual respect and their love of horror movies!  Tray hides a little bit about himself because he wants to make sure someone loves him for him and not the bad ass biker everyone thinks he is.  Along the way we find out someone is stalking the couple and it makes them both a bit on edge because who would be following them.

When Zillah gets a call and the Hell’s Harlem get some news all the shit erupts in an epic battle of good guys vs bad guys!!  The why for the stalking is crazy and what happens later is even crazier!!  Dude but Zillah is one bad ass chick.  I have a total girl crush on her and you will see why when you read it!

JM got a few emails from me yelling at her because she made me cry A LOT in those parts of the book…good tears, happy ears and of course, sad tears!!  The epilogue and bonus epilogue ….have tissues because damn it they killed me.

I am so happy with Tray’s story but my heart aches for Catch…it just aches…..but who is this River kid and when do we get to read about his!!???

Goodreads

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

Oh Leda and Taz.  You two have this insane chemistry and you need to just own it!!  Taz, you stubborn wolf but I was so glad to see you go after your mate whether she is ready for you or not!

Leda, girl your family is more than just blood.  The fact you left your Lee County Family behind to avenge your blood family…..ugh but thankfully your new family has your back no matter what.

This book was a great addition to an already action-packed series!!  Leda made a great heroine and Taz stunned me stupid seeing him friend Steve, AKA Leda’s ex!!  But really how can you NOT love Steve!!  LOL!  His minivan is pretty awesome….bahahahahah

So we learn a lot about Leda’s past and the terrors she is running from.  When we meet Jamie and Malcom we learn even more of what has happened to her past pack and what will happen to them if they stay.  Seeing the hurt and truth unfold for Leda about her parents so was hard to hear for me the reader.

I loved how strong Leda became but also how she understood Taz and his need to protect what was his.

OMG Taz and Sam…be still me heart!!   The Brother scene made me tear up.  Bu the scene I loved the most was Taz and Leda’s new family giving him that what for about loving Leda.  I loved seeing him be so strong and taking all that Garrett and Hunter had to dish out.

I am soooooo hoping we see more from the wolves like Jamie and a certain very attentive wolf!!???  Maybe?  Perhaps???

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

I firmly believe JM Walker is going to win some sort of award for being the first author to get someone pregnant just by looking at the cover of her books!!!  Greyson’s cover was hot, but Tray’s……….  Well Tray’s is life altering!!!!!! Lol!!!

Tray is a Nomad, never thought he’d stay in one place because he has no family any more.

Zillah works at her daddy’s garage, but not on cars like she wants, dad wants to keep her away from the men that work for him.

When Tray walks into the garage they both feel the change in the air!!!!!!

The one draw back, besides having a dad that thinks she’s still a little girl, having a dad that is the president of a MC and that the man that makes her hot for the first time in her life is in a rival MC.

Man oh man, Tray is a hottie for sure, but when things get dangerous with Zillah and he becomes protective too that hotness ramps up to like a million times!!!!

Of course you can’t have a MC book without some danger and Walker so gives us that with having two MC’s and it wouldn’t be a JM Walker book without HOT SEX and she gives us that too!!!!!! Lol!!!

Tray and Zillah work so well together, it’s so great.  Yes, it seems super fast, but it’s almost as if they had something the other had been searching for.

I am saying nothing about the story itself because you have to experience it for yourself.  All that heat, passion, danger, and WTF moments hearing about it second hand will not make you feel the same as reading it for yourself.

So in conclusion;  Tray’s cover will make you pregnant so beware and make sure your birth control is up to date, Zillah and Tray’s story is awesome, and I will be waiting on pins and needles for the next Hell’s Harlem MC book.

#WOTR19 #ThrowbackReview – A Home For Love (Homecoming Book 1) by Aly Grady

A Home For Love (Homecoming Book 1)

Having thrown in the towel where men are concerned, Charlotte Cavanuagh devotes her energy toward expanding her design business and finding a new place to live.

Despite his love of family, recent losses have left Luke Anderson with no desire to embark upon a new relationship, allowing him to give his contracting company his undivided attention.

But when Charlotte and Luke work together on a customer’s dream home, their budding friendship results in more sparks than either of them ever expected.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

You know what they say? You find love when you aren’t looking. This book is precisely what the old adage is saying.

Charlotte was NOT looking for love.  After coming home and finding her husband screwing his secretary, Charlotte said DONZO!!  She ignored Grants MANY attempts at reconciliation because in her heart she knew they weren’t really in love but just a great working team who happened to marry. Luke was all about the pride of his work.  He was working and not really looking for anything or one when Charlotte walks into his life by accident.

The couple end up spending some time together and soon the sparks are flying.  As we are seeing the couple start to form attachments and figure out what is going on, there are some weird things happening and causing trouble for the new couple.

The story of the house the Charlotte buys….my heart….so sweet.  I loved the description of the house and what we discover from Luke about the house.

The story is a sweet read and one readers who are looking for characters who are mature and not a 20 something.

 

Aly Grady is New England born but for more than ten years has enjoyed living and raising her children in the Indianapolis area. She has firsthand knowledge of the racing industry because she is a racing widow. Aly enjoys trying to keep up with her two children and their busy lives, reading books by her favorite authors, watching IndyCar racing to look for her husband and traveling. “If you can read all those romance books you should be able to write one.” Aly took that challenge by her husband and ran with it to create The Racer’s Widow.

Goodreads

I received this book from a friend.

WHAT!!  This book has so much going on with so many twists and turns. #Anxiety #Stress #MakeUpSex

So our girl, Kendall has gone off to college with her Quad of boys, Mav, T, Goose and Lucas.  They all rent a house but due to football, they must live in the dorms.  Kendall is surviving in a haunted house all by herself. She is so funny with talking to a perceived ghost in her house but it seems maybe a ghost it isn’t buutttt something much worse………….*Que ominous music*

The Quad and Kendall seem to be in a good place until someone starts to stalk our girl and her Quad.  We start to have a little bit of anxiety for our new family.  We see them connecting but we also start to see some stress in the family bond.  One of the guys gets hurt in a game and his past comes to haunt him plus one of the guys maybe, possibly strays from Kendall *Gasp* Say it isn’t so….we start to see doubt and hurt creeping into our hearts.  Dude I was just as sad as Kendall!!    But God love her for never giving up on her guys or their family.

The twists and turns are SPECTACULAR I this book.  I would also like to add that the “Loving” scenes are also SPECTACULAR in this book *wink wink* but the end of the story when some bad things happen to our girl…….my heart was on the floor.  The guys really rally to help her and fix this family and holy shit do they ever find the perfect way to fix everything!!!

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.

The Right Pitch
Colie Adger is trying to make it in the big leagues as an athletic trainer. Working in a man’s world isn’t easy. Colie must figure out how to make the best decisions for all the men in her life—both on and off the field. As good as she is at making decisions for others, can Colie figure out her own heart and hit a homerun off the right pitch?

Fear of Striking Out
Shortstop Tate James is less than excited about his trade to the trendy City of Angels. That is until he crosses paths with beautiful Mia Tomko. She lets him know that not all L.A. women are just after fame and fortune. When someone from both of their pasts arrives, will it tear them apart or make them closer?

Another at Bat
Pitcher Jace Richards had it all. Fame, status, money, and the perfect girl but it wasn’t enough. Laurel Darbis is the mom to ten-year-old Grey who is about to start baseball. All of the parents are thrilled when the new coach arrives, everyone except Laurel.

Pitcher Benny Martinez and his longtime girlfriend Isabel Soltero are afraid that history will repeat itself. With Benny on the road, Isabel is doing her best to be both the mother and the father to their teenage son. Throughout Benny’s travels, he watches his fellow ball players, Grant Adamson, Tate James, and Jace Richards interact with their family and he soon realizes what he’s missing. It’s time Benny makes a decision which comes first—his family or his career?

Goodreads

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

Ok so I begged for this book after falling in love with Mia’s brother, his best friend and the woman they both end up loving!!!

Mia and Tate are side characters, so I KNEW a little bit of their history from that but actually seeing them fall in love was awesome.

Mia is attracted to the hottie on the field, but she is a bit skittish after her ex-husband left her with a few scars from his abuse.  But Mia isn’t the only one dealing with past issues scars.   It was a great read seeing the two try to figure everything out to not let their past win to ruin their future happiness.

If you love Lyssa like I do, then you will be claiming and licking Asher like I have…well actually I think I claim and lick all of her characters. #GreedyReader

Lyssa Layne is first, and foremost, the proud momma to her precious daughter, AR. In addition to working full-time and being a mommy to AR, she is also an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, a runner, blogger, and an infertility survivor.

#WOTR19 #RH #review #Contemporary – Reviving Kendall (White Trash Trilogy #1) by Brandy Slaven


Reviving Kendall (White Trash Trilogy, #1)

“I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart.”

Growing up, I’ve always lived on the wrong side of the tracks. I’m used to the stares, name calling, and disrespect. A tragic accident that leaves me short three of the only people I’ve ever loved, has me devastated enough to try to end my own life. Just when I think there’s no hope, I find a reason to live again, or four of them as a matter of fact. Lucas, Maverick, Teagan, and Goose. But what happens when those bonds are tested? I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart. My name is Kendall Davis and what if my story doesn’t have a happy ending?

*This is the first book in a Contemporary Reverse Harem Trilogy.

*Recommended 17+ due to mature language and situations.

The rain steadily falls around us as we stand under the little canopy area. His hand is still at my elbow and I want nothing more than to lean into him. My eyes fall to my bus as it pulls away from the curb. Tears pool in my eyes and streak down my face at the thought of my now miserable walk home.

Lucas uses his other hand to pull my chin up to face him. His eyes roam over my face like he’s trying to figure out how to fix the white trash ruin that I am, but he has no idea just how impossible that would be. People are staring, and I couldn’t give two shits as Lucas locks eyes with me. His flicks down to my lips and back up again.

Goodreads

I received this book from a friend.

SHUT UP!!  #WhyChoose is why I LOVE RH!!!  My friend Mary was all “DUDE you need these books in your life” and then she gifted them to me.  HOLY HELLS BELLS!!!  I sat and read 50% before I knew it. Kendall is so awesome and feisty and yet so broken and damaged.  The guys IE Mav, Teagan, Goose/Grant and Lucas made my heart just beat so fast and so hard for each of them.  Each guy is so different but such a needed part to make Kendall whole again.

Kendall is the only girl who has the strength and NERVE to take on these 4 different guys.  “The Quad”, as she calls them, are sweet and hard headed but so in love with our girl.  They are so confused and yet they can’t wait to try and make her theirs separately and as a group.

Kendall has had so much hardship losing her parents, her nana, her dying grandpa and her VanPelt brothers AKA her boyfriends.  She is just living and dealing with a jealous rival named Derrick.  Kendall has no idea why he hates her yet he won’t leave her alone.

The Quad comes to her restaurant and she is none to pleased at their come on so gives them the business!!  She may live in a trailer park and everyone might THINK she is less than, but she lives by a certain code of honor.

As the story unfolds, we see the guys showing up and helping her out but individually stealing kisses and moments.  When a fun trip to the mountains turns sour, Kendall turns her back and runs.  When her crappy life gets eve worse, she is shut off to the world until her guys come back and refuse to leave her.

When the 5 decide to give things a try, we can see the stress of the unknown disappear.  When the decide to openly claim each other as THEIRS, we can see the group becoming closer and tighter.  I can’t wait to read the net book and have it downloaded to start right away!!!
