#NewRelease #Review #MontgomeryInk #ColoradoSprings Restless Ink (Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs Book 2) By Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the so-called sensible sister and the one man she never should have fallen for.

For Thea Montgomery, baking isn’t only therapeutic, it’s also her dream job. She’s worked countless hours keeping her bakery afloat, and now that it’s where she wants it to be, she’s ready to expand and take the next step. When it comes to work and her family, she’s on top of her game. Her personal life, however, is a different story.

When Dimitri Carr isn’t teaching and hiding his ink under long sleeves to keep the bosses happy, he’s trying to be the best brother and friend he can be. After his divorce, he’d thought he would lose Thea from his life forever because she’s his ex-wife’s best friend. But now that he’s free, and the two of them realize they want to keep their friendship. Then he finally sees what he’s been missing all this time.

But there are more problems than the fact that Dimitri is Thea’s best friend’s ex. And when accidental touches and flirtations aren’t enough for either of them, and they’re finally ready to take the next step, they’ll find out exactly what that cost is for crossing that line. And will need to find the strength to face it.

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

I don’t know how many times I’ve said it, but I love this family!!!!!!  

Thea Montgomery is the head baker and owner of Colorado Icing and loves it.

In her sister Addi’s book we learned that Thea’s best friend Molly and her husband Dimitri were divorcing.

Thea was having a hard time because she was friends with both before they even got married and was finding it hard to stay that way after the divorce.

Dimitri Carr  a divorced tatted teacher and lets not forget he’s a HOTTIE!!!  Oh and he loves dogs too!!! Lol.

After seeing each other after again after her date from hell Thea has thoughts about him that she’s never thought before.

In typical Montgomery fashion we have scenes that involve the Colorado Springs siblings.  I absolutely love these, they show just how close this family is.

Thea and Dimitri are so good that I don’t know why he even married Molly!!  These guys should have been together before now, but maybe they weren’t ready to see how much more than friends they could be.

As with a lot of Ryan’s books in the middle of couples falling in love there is also a lot going on in their lives else where.

Thea’s in the middle of trying to finalize things in the next step for her bakery, Dimitri has the normal troubles that go along with being a teacher, and there is the drama that may or may not be coming from Molly Dimitri’s ex.

Ryan never disappoints and always leaves you wanting the next story.  The next Montgomery is going to be a doozy, but it will as always be well worth the wait.

#NewRelease #Review #NewSeries #Shifter #SpinOff Mating Season (Morgan Clan Bears Book 1) by Theresa Hissong

Drake Morgan has kept his family secret from the humans for eternity, having no desire to put their existence out into the open like the other shifterkind. He lives a solitary life with his two brothers hidden on his farm deep in the backwoods of Northern Mississippi.

Every spring, their bears call to prepare their home for the arrival of a mating season. The search for their mates begins, and Drake has to rethink his disgust of humans when one of their females show up on his land, scenting of his destined mate. Morgan’s bear demands he keep her for himself, but he knows she will never accept his true nature.

Tessa Ward moved to this little town to hide from her abusive ex, taking two jobs to pay rent and put food on the table. Her position at the local parts store sends her into the heart of the country to make one simple delivery to the local farmer, Drake Morgan. Upon arrival, she is thrown into the world of the paranormal after one touch from the bear shifter and she finds out his true nature.

Mating season has arrived, and Drake is prepared to fight for the woman who is fated to be his bride. When his mate’s ex comes lurking around his sacred property, Drake will stop at nothing until his female is safe, even if it means killing a human…not that he cares for them anyway.

If you have read Theresa Hissong’s series Talon Pack you have met Drake Morgan.  He is a grouchy bear shifter that sticks to his land, loves his brothers which are his Clan, and hates humans.

Tessa Ward is new to the area, on the run from her abusive ex husband and not in anyway looking for a man, which is good since what she finds is a shifter. LOL

I do love a broody, bearded man and that is exactly what Drake is.  Yes his bear is after him to find a mate, however he does not agree that it has to be this little human.  Humans are bad and nothing you can say will change his mind.

Lol, the bigger and broodier they are the harder they fall.  Drake’s bear knows what he wants and he wants the lovely Tessa.

Tessa has been through some crap man, you would think that a man like Drake would scare her but instead there is something that calls her to him.  Even though Tessa has had it rough doesn’t mean she is a push over though, she stand up for herself when she needs too.  

Drake are her really are meant to be,that Drake is a dominant in the bedroom  and found Tessa to be submissive is HOT!  I love how everyone sees how Tessa has a calming affect on the grouchy bear that he doesn’t.  However, when Tessa is threatened he is no where near calm!!!  She is also calmed by him.  Soul Mates!!!!

The way the bears are with their women is awesome and I can’t wait to see Drakes brothers find their mates.

Wild Hunger (Heirs of Chicagoland, #1)

In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill’s spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret.

But she’s a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he’s prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.

Goodreads

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

I have not read the series that this book is a spin off for I guess I should say right off the start.  I have seen the other series and thought YES but it’s so deep in and I just don’t have the time to dedicate to starting a new series so when this happened I jumped.  I didn’t have any real trouble understanding storyline information from the other series.  I think the author did a great job explaining issues during the story for people like me to get was happening.  But I love paranormal so I can just kinda roll with it and go.  Some people might not be able to just go with it.

Essentially this book is about Elisa and the fact of her birth being so crazy and supernatural….see she is the only VAMPIRE child to be born and born with magic too….see why I love paranormal???!!

Connor and Elisa have a very complicated and sorted relationship to say the least.  They have great banter in the book and it made me laugh a bit.  They also have great chemistry which makes for fun reading too.  Connor and Elisa have to figure out about themselves and what they want when what they are starts to show.  This makes everything a bit more interesting.

#NewRelease #Review #MontgomeryInk Fallen Ink (Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs) Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend.

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible.

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way

My favorite family of Inked and bearded men are back, this time though it’s a different branch of the Montgomery family tree, Carrie Ann Ryan gives us Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs!!!!

Ryan us blessed the world with the Montgomery cousins and I am one happy camper!!!
On this branch of the family tree we have Adrienne, Shephard, Thea, and Roxie. Shep has already had his story told in Ink Inspired which was the start of the whole obsession that is Montgomery Ink. Now it’s Adrienne’s turn and the start of Colorado Springs.
Maya and Austin, from the Denver Montgomery’s, are spreading their tattooed wings and opening a second tattoo studio called Montgomery Ink Too or MIT. Adrienne and Shep are part owners of it with their family as well as the managers.
Adrienne is a tattoo artist and along with her bestie Mace, her brother, and friends they have MIT’s grand opening but it’s interrupted by some stranger saying that they aren’t welcome and that they wouldn’t be there long.
Mace Knight is Adrienne’s best friend, a tattoo artist, and a weekend dad to his daughter. He is also a hot bearded silver fox!!!!!
Out of the blue his ex leaves the country and leaving him a full time father to the daughter he loves, so having to learn to become a full time father as well as starting a new job is hard on him.
Not only does Mace have a hard time with his new life, Adrienne is having a hard time also dealing with the new business and the threats to it. Adrienne and Mace lean more on each other than they already do and start something new along the way.
I adore when best friends fall in love!! They already know everything about each other but also learn so much more.
Adrienne and Mace are so good together I can’t believe that they haven’t moved beyond friends before now!!!
The steam coming off these two can be seen for miles, but there is also tenderness. The tenderness between Mace and his daughter, between Adrienne and his daughter, and the way that he realizes that they make a perfect family.
Between Adrienne and Mace falling in love and the threat to the business we learn about the other Montgomery girls and get to see how Shep and his family are doing now that he has moved back home to Colorado Springs.
I can not wait to read more about this branch of the family.

#WOTR18 #Review #NewRelease #LeeCountyWolves #Shifter Forbidden Temptation (Lee County Wolves 4) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Temptation (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #4 by [Gabelman, Teresa]

Taking on new recruits has always been tricky business for Dell Farris, head protector of the Lee County Wolves. Add in the knowledge that his mate is one of them makes things even more complicated. He knows she has demons to fight, but he’s determined to take charge of that battle. Nothing and no one will ever hurt her again.

Roslyn “Ross” Starr has secrets that she plans to take to the grave. But fearing putting innocents in danger, she makes a decision that could end everything. In a split second, Ross’s life changes, and all because of a handsome shifter who makes her want to try for the life she deserves.

As Dell unlocks the secrets of Roslyn’s past it is clear to all but him that she is a forbidden temptation.

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

Ross is a girl with a past, one so tragic that she would rather be gone from this Earth than put her new pack in any danger that may come.
Dell is……. Well Dell is that strong and silent male and it’s always the quiet ones that you have to watch out for and I mean that in such a delicious way.
Dell can fight the pull of Roslyn as his mate no more, especially now that he knows how much pain she is hiding. There is lots going on in this book; change for the pack, a couple coming together, a horrible past coming back, Dell kicking a$$, and Leda leaving.
I love that we get to see all of our favorite couples from the Lee County Pack. Not only that, we get to hear a glimpse of our favorite funny VC Warrior and Leda’s bestie Steve.
I also am on pins and needles to see how Leda is going to deal with who comes after her!!
I know, I know my review is so vague, but you gotta read it to find out I can’t give all of Gabelman’s secrets away!!!

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Whiskey Secrets (Whiskey and Lies Book 1) by Carrie Ann Ryan

Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.

Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.

Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

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

First of all let me say that Ryan had me crying from the acknowledgments. I knew this release was going to be hard for her being the first without her beloved Dr. Hubby and I know she wanted to do him proud, but she has no worries there, I believe he would be extremely proud of her.
Second, Yay for Tabby’s brothers getting a series!!!
Dare is the middle of Collins brothers and owner of the Old Whiskey Bar and Restaurant. He is a man that runs his business, broods about his past, and lives for his weekends with his son. When his parents, who run the inn above his restaurant, tell the family that they are hiring a new innkeeper so that they can retire he gets even more brooding,
Kenzie Owens is the new innkeeper hired by the Owen’s family. She is starting a new life in a new town, a doing her best not to think about her old life, but her old life won’t leave her alone.
Dare is a bit of a jerk when they first are introduced, not that he really means to be. He is a man that doesn’t do change well and his parents just sprung hiring a new innkeeper on the family, so he’d have been a jerk to anyone really. He also is having a hard time with only getting his son one weekend a month.
Kenzie is attracted to Dare, and he to her, but is bound and determined not to let a man in her life again. These two just can’t help themselves and decide to get together and not put labels or anything on it, just take it day by day.
I love that Ryan always writes about her couples in situations that are totally real; they don’t just take one look at each other, fall in love and live happily ever after, there is screw ups, hard work, and forgiveness just like in real life.
Ryan also does a good job of letting us know more about Loch and Fox Collins too and we get to here from Tabby!!
I really was happy with the start of the Collin’s boys and I look forward to seeing more of them.

Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her life even more by dropping two very different men in her lap and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, sadist by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for a man like him, but he can’t seem to walk away—even when he discovers he’s not the only man caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she’s so deep under his skin that he’s willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. Then he realizes he’s got competition…

When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were as close as brothers. But when it’s clear they’re vying for the same girl, the games get vicious—until they realize that Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they lose her for good?

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Loving Quinn: The Lone Wold Defenders Book 2 by Alicia Montgomery

Happy-go-lucky wolf shifter and hacker Quinn never saw the point of committing to just one person for the rest of his life. After all, with his devilish good looks and charisma, he could have any woman he wants. Any woman, except the sassy almost-witch Selena, who seems resistant to his charms. While he denies his attraction to the curvy redhead, his own animal craves her attention, and Quinn finds it difficult to stay away.

Having no magical talent meant Selena was at the bottom rung of her coven hierarchy. Mocked by her own family and pitied by the rest of her coven, she builds her own life away from them. When an offer comes that could finally give her the respect and standing she’s always wanted, it should have been easy to say yes. But a certain sexy and handsome Lone Wolf shifter has sent her into a tizzy, and she risks the chance of being welcomed back into the fold by giving into her own desires.

When Quinn’s past comes back to haunt him, it puts Selena in the line of fire and he’ll do anything to protect her. However, Selena has problems of her own and she finds herself having to choose between the life she’s always dreamed of or bet her heart on commitment-phobic Quinn. Staying together only means danger and pain, but can they really resist the attraction between them, which could end up imploding both their lives?

If you LOVE reformed playboy/virgin paranormal shifter romances, then READ this book!

Loving Quinn series is a paranormal romance novel with over 60k words. It’s a standalone novel with HEA, hot and sexy scenes, Lycan action and no cheating. It takes place in the True Mates Universe but works as a standalone novel.

Quinn is the Techie of Lone Wolf Security, he is also known as a ladies man or in today’s vernacular a man whore. However, there is something about the best friend of the brothers secretary that he’s drawn to he is going to be the one thing he never is with a woman, her friend.
Selena Merlin is a New York librarian and witch, but she’s a witch in name only because she was born without powers much to her dismay. Being a witch without powers means she’s low man on the witches totem pole and can be banished from her coven at anytime, so she is being forced into a arranged marriage by her father. She knows what type of guy Quinn is but believes him when he says they can be friends.
First off let me say arranged marriage?? What is this Victorian England?? I get it, I really do poor Selena is having to do something for the good of her family that she doesn’t want to do, we’ve all been put in that type of situation. She’s so use to doing things for everyone else and being last in the witch world, she finds it hard to put herself first when she’s in it.
Second, friends with Quinn? Uh, yes please!!! Lol!! I love these two finding their way with each other, the LOTR movie nights are really sweet!!! When they do decide to move it into something more it kills me that they hide it from their friends, Quinn’s family, and that she hasn’t told Quinn about the marriage deal or told her father that she’s not going through with it.
Speaking of Quinn’s family, man that is one humdinger of a plot twist. Nope, these lips are zipped you’re gonna have to read it.
Oh, and someone keeps trying to kill them!!
These are the questions that you’re asking yourself as you’re reading: Are Quinn and Selena Fated Mated? Does Quinn find out about the arranged marriage? Will Selena ever put herself first? Who’s are they trying to kill Quinn, Selena, or both?
By the end i was happily wore out, and laughing my tale off at Jolene and the epilogue. I can’t wait to see what Montgomery has in store for us with Connor, i just know it’s gonna be a beast.

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Hope Restored (The Gallagher Brothers Book 3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes with the final brother who thought he had everything to look forward to, and the one woman who can handle him.

Life isn’t worth living if you don’t fight to live. That’s what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he’s been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he’ll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.

Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She’s spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she’s forced into close proximity with Murphy, she’ll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn’t stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

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

AHHHHHHH! The end of another of my favorite series by Carrie Ann Ryan!!!! The Gallagher’s started as a spin off of the Montgomery’s and became a phenomenon all their own and that phenomenon has come to a end with the youngest of the brothers, Murphy.
Murphy stole my heart when he first came on the scene in the first book of the series Passion Restored. He is the lead architect for the family business, he’s the Gallagher with the shortest beards but has the longest hair ( Hello!!!!! Who cares how short his beard is, it’s still a beard and that makes him yummy!!!!), and he has dealt with his own mortality as a child, more than anyone should. F**king cancer!!
Tessa is apart of the family being that she is his brother’s fiancée’s BFF. She knows how hot the youngest Gallagher is, he’s her flirting buddy when the group is together. She’s attracted to him but she’s determined to be his friend and just stay the aforementioned flirt buddy.
First let me say; Damn you Carrie Ann, I knew that that Murphy’s story was going to be a rough one I was expecting that. I was not however, expecting that surprise blast from the past!!!!!!
Secondly, she’s makes me ugly cry over bearded men waaaaaay to often!!! Lol!!!
I seriously do not want to say anything other than that because you have to read Murphy to appreciate him and Tessa and all the crazy feels that Ryan produces with this book. He will make you cry, together they will make you laugh, as a family The Gallagher’s will show you how strong a family is.
Thank you Carrie Ann Ryan for bringing another family to life with the Gallagher’s, Thank you for letting Murphy have his perfect story, and thank you for saying we’ll still see glimpses of them again in the Montgomery series.
