I am so glad that Teresa Gabelman decided to do a spin-off for the mates of the VC Warriors.  She did a great job giving us the first book in the series with Nicole and she’s on a roll with the second book Tessa.
If you have read the series you know that Tessa is a strong woman that can and will do what is needed.  Tessa’s only problem, I feel, is that she has a huge problem with seeing herself has that woman.  Oh, sure on some level she knows she’s a strong person but deep down she truly doesn’t feel it because she doesn’t know herself.
Now her mate is one alpha male VC Warrior known as Jared Kincade.  Jared has slowly dropped down the list of my favorite warriors because he has what I like to call douchebagitis.  He’s always been in my top three and lets face it if I  had him as my number one Twinsie Angie would kill me, which is cool because I’ve been in love with Slade since he walked onto the pages of Duncan’s book.
Sorry, sorry, thought of Slade and lost track, LOL, back to Tessa and Jared.
Since the mates have been training with the warriors to all the Males have slowly stood behind their mates decision, with the exception of Jared and it has been causing a rift to form.
In this story we get to see Tessa find and total believe in herself and her power as a woman and a vampire.  Major secrets are spilled by Jared, which is the reason he has been behaving the way he has, and we get to see a group of new vamps called The Dark Guardians.  We are also get to see Tessa and Adam’s POS father for the first time too.
There’s passion, drama, and you’ll need tissues because there is also tears with this one.  I’m excited to see where Gabelman is going with the demon outbreak and to see who the next mate is gonna be.
I do have one small side note for her, well it’s more of a request, more Slade please!!!!  Hee, hee, hee, I don’t see where having more of him in any book is a bad thing.

Goodreads


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

Lord knows I have been in an uproar over my Jared being a douche canoe to his mate Tessa.  I mean I have loved this man since book 1 but I was about to jump ship to #TeamCharger.  However, after reading this book, I have forgiven him and totally understand the why for his attitude and major dickness…dickness is this a word…anyway…toward Tessa.

Tessa and Jared have always seemed pretty stable but as the series has gone on, we have seen little cracks in their HEA.  I mean first when she was turned and then as she wanted to become a VC Warrior.  Like Tessa, I was like WTF JACKA$$.  But I tell ya, the woman has more patience that I do because she is a people pleaser even if it hurts her in the end.  Well this book Tessa is DONE people pleasing and going to start doing HER for HER and if Jared can’t hang welp that is on him.

Jared, the king of funny joke and sexual innuendo is not doing so well right now.  He has MAJOR skeletons flying outta the closet and he can’t slam the door fast enough. The poor guy is trying to put out fires without giving away his past but with not dealing with everything PROPERLY he is not putting out the flames but inflaming them.

There were lots of teary moment in this book.  Seeing Tessa and Jared dancing around the issues and not really facing the problems out of fear of losing the other one actually made it 100x worse for both of them. Seeing and hearing about the impending bad dudes made the fear even more real for Jared which made him even more of a mess!!

When everything comes to a head, I had tears but seeing and feeling Jared’s pain made it even worse.  Friends this book was everything we have needed to see between Jared and Tessa.  They were no longer able to hide and no longer able to dance around all the issues.

I love the main series but the Mates series you seem to get more one on one with the OG couples and that makes me so happy!!!

#NewRelease #Review #TrueMates #Shifter A Witch in Time:True Mates Generations Book 4 by Alicia Montgomery

When three strangers appear at his doorstep, Lord Reed Townsend, Duke of Huntington, knows something is not quite right. And it’s not just because his wolf immediately recognizes Elise Henney as his True Mate. But the cold, unfeeling Alpha doesn’t want to risk his heart again, despite the fact that his wolf is urging him to claim their mate. He ignores his instincts, hoping that the desire and longing he feels for the young American miss would eventually go away.

Transported from modern day New York to Regency England, wolf shifter Elise Henney and her companions deduce that their only way home lies with the London Alpha. But, Reed’s suspicious nature is a major hindrance, not to mention, his cold, unfeeling nature. Still, she can’t help but feel drawn to the broody duke, but he can never know who she really is or where she’s from.

Sparks fly despite their denial of their attraction to each other. But, Elise’s only way home relies on Reed’s fate, one she cannot change no matter what happens. Can they let history play out as it’s supposed to or will they defy time, in order to be together?
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


Welcome to True Mates Generations book 4 and after reading it I now want to watch Back to the Future!!!
That’s right a couple of the true mate kiddos travel accidentally back in time after a attack by the mages.
Elise Henney’s parents are the alphas of the San Francisco clan.  She and her mother are in New York for the new Alpa’s ascension.  Elise is a hybrid wolf/witch, she has never been able to control her powers so she wears gloves.  When the mages attack during the ceremony she uses her powers and she, Julianna Anderson, and Cross Jonasson are transported back in time to Regency  London.
Reed Townsend is about to become the alpha of London when these unfamiliar people save his nephew.
He is unsure of these new guest that he now has, he just knows that he is attracted to Elise and they are not telling the truth.
As always the chemistry between True Mates is off the charts!!  It’s crazy that Elise had to travel back in time to find her mate.
Of course we gotta deal with the mages, it wouldn’t be a True Mates story without them trying the screw thing up.
It was funny seeing 3 people from this time trying to fit in during that time period and Alicia Montgomery did a excellent job at making me feel that it was a smooth transaction be between time periods.
I’m excited to see who will be the next True Mate kiddo to find their mate and to see if they can defeat the mages once and for all.
Alicia Montgomery has always dreamed of becoming a romance novel writer. She started writing down her stories in now long-forgotten diaries and notebooks, never thinking that her dream would come true. After taking the well-worn path to a stable career, she is now plunging into the world of self-publishing.

Sexy shifters, billionaires, alpha males, and of course, strong, sexy female characters are her favorite to write. Alicia is a wanderer, along with her husband, they travel the world and have lived in various spots all over the world.

#Review – Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! #1) by Theresa Hissong

Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! #1)

Fatal Desires
Fatal Cross Live!
Book 1
For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.
One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.
When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

BookBub

Who doesn’t like a hot rocker story? This is a spin off of the Glory Days series. I didn’t realize that until I was about half way through the book. However, it didn’t stop me from continuing Cora’s and Taylor’s story. Cora works for her cousin’s band and she has a tryst with Taylor, a guitarist from another band, Fatal Cross. They have an incredible time and then go their separate ways. After their brief, but very hawt time together they both end up dealing with some very intense situations. They both could have leaned on each other but couldn’t connect (you must read this because I can’t explain and give it away!). All of a sudden they are slammed back into a situation where they are forced to work together. The tension is so thick between the two that you can literally feel it as you are reading. They both are incredibly stubborn and have an intense back and forth throughout the entire book that when they finally fall together you really feel it deep down. 

“Rule number one…don’t sleep with rockstars who’ve dipped their pen in so much ink that their cocks are stained from all the attention.”

This is one of my favorite lines. Again, both of the characters are super strong willed and stubborn so when they bump heads it gets crazy! 

As the story progresses you get to see how these two eventually get back to each other, even if it involves tragic situations. This is one of those stories that is quick and easy to read but will have your emotions all over the place. As I said at the beginning, this is the first book I have read by this author, and I didn’t realize this was a spin off series, but I am looking forward to continuing this series as well as going back to read Glory Days.

#WOTR19 #TwinsieForTheDayBecky #Review – Twisted, Tangled Web #1 by Aleatha Romig

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.

While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give up my life.

That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.

Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.

And then I saw her.

Laurel Carlson.

I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.

My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.

None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.

I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.

This time, will the price be too high?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.

TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Review by Becky

You know you are in for a roller coaster ride when Aleatha is steering and a series called Tangled Web.  She won’t let you down! This review will not spoil the story.

Laurel and Russ’s relationship was friends with benefits.  They worked well together and trusted each other.  They had each other’s backs.  That is until the twisted story line starts with the fund raiser for their research and it’s benefits.  There’s more to Stephanie, Laurel’s assistant, than what Aleatha give us in Twisted.

Laurel’s hairs raised when she saw Kader at the fundraiser.  The magnetism between the two of them dripped.  Laurel’s neck hairs raised and her panties got wet.  There was something between them and Aleatha made sure you could feel it as you read her words.

Throughout Twisted, Kader continued mention “his mission”.  He never spelled it out. Never said it.  Until the cliff hanger!  Shame on you Aleatha.  Now making us wait.….hanging.tormented.   

Aleatha only has dripping hot, sexy men in her books and they all have stories that will twist you up. I have a mental note of Kader’s past.  I’m not going to lay it out there.  I’m going to see if I’m right.

If you haven’t been Aleatha’s yet, grab Twisted.  You will not be disappointed!

#TwinsieKristiTop5, #WOTRAttendingAuthors, #Reviews, #Shifter, #Contemporary, #MC, #Vampire, #Cowboys.

Wow, can you believe we are halfway done with this year? I mean it’s crazy!!  Since we are at the halfway point we all know what that means!!! That’s right its time for Twinsie Kristi’s Top Five!! I’ve got a little bit of everything going on with my reading this year.  Out of everything that I have read so far its been really hard to pick my favorite reads, but did it.  I’ve picked for you a hottie cowboy, a kick butt female vamp, a heartbreaking contemporary, a shifter, and a MC Alpha!!!

Now a few of these ladies will be in attendance at WOTR so if you’re going check them out and if aren’t and your in the Peoria Illinois area on July 20th you should.  Not only do you get to met some authors and buy books, its for a great cause too!!!

So back to it, here it is in no order at all Twinsie Kristi’s Top 5.

Loss. Passion. Rage. Love.

It started the moment she left me.

Submission. Wrath. Savage. Resentment.

She rejected me when I needed her most.

My walls were up. My life was lonely. My world was dark. 
I opened up to her and gave her every piece of me only to have her rejection slap me in the face. I needed her. I wanted her. But hated her just the same. After years of giving myself to others, she falls back into my life when I least expected it. With so many years between us, we fell back into an easy routine. She was no longer the girl I had fallen in love with, but a woman who was running from her demons only to land in the arms of a monster…

So, having read the other books from the Hell’s Harlem Series I thought that I knew what Catch was gonna be about.  Hot MC guy on guy action with some sort of killing mixed it, along with a few scenes of the guys in church. Catch had the hots from Greyson, was in love with Trey so of course finally he’s gonna get him a Hot MC Man of his own right, but I guess he could of found him a hot civilization too, either way it was time for the hotness that is Catch to find is HEA.
Boy did Walker totally freak my mind grapes with introducing Sara.  That’s right I said Sara, a female for the man that I thought was gonna give us some hot MM love.
Sara isn’t just any plain ole female, nope, nope, nope!!!    SHE’S HIS FREAKING FIRST LOVE THAT BROKE HIS HEART!!!!  Ummm, ok I’m calm sorry for the yelling, but dang Walker are you trying to give me a heart attack here???!!!!!
Walker takes us on a awesome journey to the past  to show us why Catch and Sara were no more, what happened to Sara since leaving Catch.  Sara’s life has not been a easy one and she’s trying to change that,  seeing Catch again isn’t something that she thought was gonna happen.  You can not have a story with a past love coming back with a present and hopefully a future and Walker gives us the present with Catch helping Sara and maybe a glimpse into the future, I’m gonna zip my lips on that one though you have to read it for yourself!!!
P.s.  to those of you that have been reading Walker for a while our favorite Masochistic physiologist Santos!!!!!!  To those of you that are getting to see Dr. Santos for the first time here check out his book Beautiful Pain. 

 
From NYT bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan, comes a brand new series where second chances don’t come often, and overcoming an unexpected loss means breaking everything you knew.

I fell for Cameron Connolly at the wrong time. And when he left, I thought my life was over. But then, after the worst happened, I truly understood what that phrase meant. Now, he’s not ready for a second chance, and I’m not offering one. Though given that our families have been forced together after losing one of our own, I know there’s no turning back. Not this time. Not again. Not when it comes to Cameron.

~~

I never wanted to hurt Violet Knight, but there were reasons I had to leave all those years ago—not that she’d believe me if I told her what they were. I not only left her, I also left my foster brothers. Honestly, I didn’t want to come back to Denver to help run my father’s failing brewery. But when it comes to my brothers, I know I’ll find a way to make it work. Perhaps I’ll even earn Violet’s forgiveness and face the connection we both thought long forgotten in the process. Because I wanted her then, but now I know I need her. I just hope she needs me.

I love starting a new series, especially one by a favorite author. Why you ask, because it’s like coming into a new group of friends, but of people that you already know but now you get to really know them and come to love them.
In Breaking Without You we have Violet Knight and we meet Cameron Connolly.  Violet we have briefly met before as she is Mace’s sister from Fallen Ink: Montgomery Ink Colorado Springs Book 1.
This story is a heartbreaker for sure, what Violet and her tribe are going through is one of the toughest things a group of friends can go through.  Suicide is something that is very prevalent in the world today and when it happens it is awful and when it is someone that is close to you it’s even more devastating.
That is what brings Violet and Cameron into each other’s life’s…….. again.
See not only is this a love story, it’s a second chance love story and those are always good.
The chemistry between them is off the charts, but that was never the problem for them when they were together in college.  No the problem was when Cameron just left without a word or reason.
I love that Ryan always gives us true life in her stories.  From how Violet and her friends are coping with their grief, to Cameron and his brothers trying to come together again after years apart, to the why of Cameron leaving.  All of it is vey real life things that could happen to and does happen to every day people.  
Also, what I love about her writing is that if you haven’t read the series that a new series has spun off of it doesn’t matter, you won’t be lost because you can read them as stand alones. A warning though, you won’t want too if you are anything think me you gotta know everything and everyone so like Pokèmon you gotta get them all. Lol
I can’t wait to see more of this series, it’s gonna be a good one.
When Killian Brody showed up at Dallas Faircloth’s work with news that her half-brother might die without her help, she never expected the oldest and sexiest Brody to kidnap her to ensure her cooperation.

The scandalous affair between Dallas’s mother and Killian’s father made everything inside Dallas revolt at the Brody name. It was because of a Brody her life had been left in ruins at the age of eight, and she’d had to rebuild all on her own. She hatedthe Brodys. Which was too bad, really. Killian Brody was take-charge, arrogant and so damn sexy she would have climbed him like a tree if it weren’t for that last name of his.

Her weak-willed mother had proven to her that the men in the Brody family were as addictive as any drug, and Dallas didn’t want to get hooked. But when Killian turns his sights on her and makes her believe she’s his greatest weakness, she has a choice—play it safe, or dive in headfirst and risk falling in love with a Brody man. (
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.
Welcome back to Bitterhorn Texas and say HELLO hottie to the oldest Brody brother Killian.
Ok, somethings to know about Killian: number 1 he’s a man that always gets what he wants no matter what it is. Number 2; he  has a tendency to act without thinking whether this is by action or saying something, and number 3, the man is a protector which means sometimes he does number two because of this. 
Dallas Faircloth is a woman who hates the Brody name and never thought she would see Bitterhorn again.  Why you ask? Simple, because her mother and Killian’s father had a affair which lead to a child, which lead to the absolute destruction of two families and the lives of 5 children as they knew it.
Oh my, the heat between these two I can feel all the way from Texas to my house in KY!!!!  
The relationship between these two in the beginning is rough to say the least, after all he did “kidnap” her and bring her back to Bitterhorn.  She was coming back on her own but he didn’t know that when he grabbed her.  See here’s the thing, the half brother that they share was hurt and no one was a match but her, so even though she was coming back to help the little brother he didn’t know that so it was technically kidnapping but not really. LOL
When they stop fighting and start talking they see how much they have in common, neither lived the life the other thought they did growing up, and they start having feelings for each other.
Gail has done another awesome job at showing yes alpha men can be for lack of a better word a**holes, but they have feelings too and maybe can turn that part of themselves off for the love of a woman that will stand of to that and show them that they can show their softer side to the world.
The last Brody brother is going to be the baby Des, he’s going to be a doozy and I can’t wait to see the woman who claims him.
Ada Carlisle never knew anything outside the gates of her clan, but she isn’t oblivious to why the men were there to touch her. When she is put up for sale to the highest bidder, she flees her home clan for a chance at survival. After traveling for weeks, her bear calls to build a den for the winter months. Once spring arrives, she wakes scared and alone on the land of three male grizzlies. 

The spring mating season comes with the discovery of a female bear shifter on the Morgan’s land. Rex Morgan knows immediately Ada Carlisle is to be his mate, but she’s too weak to complete the mating. When it is revealed her clan intended to sell her to a male in Montana, the Morgan brothers vow to take down the leader of the O’Kelly clan and bring justice to the male who paid for her hand. 
Like shifters? Like bear shifters? Well you have come to the right book!!
Mating Instinct is book two in Theresa Hissong’s Morgan Clan series and it’s about to get real for the Morgan Brothers with this one.
A little information before we start though.  If you are new to Hissong’s shifters there is a few things you need to know:  Mates are found first by smell, then by touch.  Once a female has found her mate and simply touched him all other touches by any male but her mate burn.  Mates are sacred.  For bear shifters there is nothing more that the male wants then to take care and adore his mate once she has been found.  Trying to force a mating on a female is wrong and finally any harm done to any female shifter or cub is to be taken care of by shifter law rather than human law.
Rex Morgan is the second of the Morgan brothers.  His older brother just found his mate and is finally settled.  It’s mating season again and he and his youngest brother are feeling the mating pull, but haven’t found their mates yet.
now, bear shifters are similar to the animal brethren in that they are not much are packs and they like to hibernate.
Rex comes upon a scent that he doesn’t recognize while out in the woods on their property and there he finds Ada.
Ada has ran away from her clan and has been hibernating on The Morgan’s land.
When Ada tells the reason why she ran things get real.
We get to see two mates find each other, shifter justice, and the coming together of a clan in this story.  If I say anything more it will ruin it for you.  Just know that love wins and justice gets served in the end.  
Hissong’s shifters are awesome stories and Rex and Ada’s story has certainly done them justice.  I can not wait for Gunner’s story and to see more of the Shaw pride.

Nicole Callahan, mate to fierce and brooding VC Warrior Damon DeMasters, has been trying to find her place in his world. Without a doubt, it’s been interesting, but she believes there’s a lot more she can offer the children she spent so much of her human life fighting for. 

The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.

Look out VC Warriors the Warriorettes are coming!!!! Lol!!!
Nicole is the first book in the VC Warrior Mates series and oh boy these ladies  love their alpha mates, but they aren’t taking it anymore!!!
Nicole heads back to work for Mitch are Social Services, without talking to Damon about it; hee, hee, hee, and does she have a doozy of a first day back.
First off I absolutely love that we are going to get more Warriors. Secondly, that we are going to get more from the women’s POV now that they have mated their men it’s going to be great.  If you have read the VC Warrior series you know that the Warriors are all alpha males that do not want their mates hurt in any way and they will say and do anything to keep it that way no matter how caveman it may seem.
Also, we know that these women are all very strong women; they also knew how their men were when they mated them, but no couple stays the same you either grow or crumble under the pressure and THAT is what we are going to see in this series.
Who will grow? Who will crumble? Please baby Jesus no one crumble, we will have to just see.
Our favorite Warriors and now Warriorettes have a new enemy too, one that we have never seen from Gabelman before and I think that it’s going be epic.
I can’t wait to see where we go next and fingers crossed none of our favorite couples crumble, don’t worry though if Jill and Slade crumble I’ll be there to console him. LOL

Feel Me (The Novus Pack Series Book 2)

Feel Me- M Jayne/Melanie Jayne

TRIGGER WARNINGS

This is book 2 and you must read book 1 to follow the story.

Sometimes, Goodbye is the Only Way

Raider Black, Leader of the Novus Pack, will do anything for his people. His word is his bond no matter the sacrifice. Novus has always come first.

Theodora Morrissey is a gift from The Goddess to the Lycan world. It doesn’t take someone with her psychic abilities to see that her future is in jeopardy.

When Theo is discovered bloodied, beaten, violated, and broken, Black must find a way for her to be healed or his dream for their future will be destroyed.

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

Lord. I finished this book last night and I am still having a hard time trying to figure out how to word my review. This book is absolutely everything a person who loves paranormal will want and need to read. The emotional build of this story is so overwhelming I was in tears by 7% of the story and again I was bawling by 30%. There is so much that happens to Theo and Raider. SO much happens to the Novus Pack plus all the friends of the couple in this story. It is impossible to read the story and leave it without being utterly stunned by the genius writing and flow.

I KNEW going in this book would have hard and difficult content. Melanie kept apologizing to me for what I was about to read. But the journey the couple takes IS needed for them both to realize they need the other to complete themselves.

Raider is so selfless in worrying for his people first he does the hardest thing he has ever done by letting Theo go. Theo knows Raider and the Pack will not be ok unless she leaves so she makes the decision to leave for another Pack. These two make the ultimate sacrifice, putting aside their love and desire for the other for everyone one else so Raider can keep his promise to another Pack. When that sacrifice ends up costing Theo, she pays the highest price a women can pay, Raider and the pack come to aide THEIR Seer.

The couple deal with A LOT. They deal with the guilt they both have. They deal with the inability to express themselves for fear of what the other might be thinking or wanting. They deal with miscommunication over everything they have been through.

This book is absolutely about love and the price people pay. It’s about commitment and how you don’t turn your back on those you love when times get hard. It’s about loving people even when they don’t love themselves. It’s about FAMILY and how even when you fight, you never really turn your back on those you love.

The emotions run deep in this story. The laughs are hard to come by at times, but the bonds of love and family are throughout the story. I will say seeing the set up for Lore’s mate……my heart was going pitter patter. That mass murdering wolf, personal guard and tutor of Theo’s has a special place in my heart. Also seeing Tex will be having a story later on down the road too made me happy.

I cannot wait for another book in the series. I cannot wait for more from this pack and the characters. It makes me so happy to be privileged to get early copies even if life sucks and I have to wait 2 weeks to read it.

Ashes (The River Ash Pack, #1)

Ashes, The River Ash Pack Book 1 by Mary Martel

Goodreads HERE

TRIGGER WARNINGS

Cordelia has never known anything but the safety of her fathers guarded compound where she’s lived her entire life. A life that, as the alphas daughter, has always been a privileged one, albeit an incredibly sheltered one.
Until one night, life as she knows it, is flipped entirely upside down when she’s promised to another alpha in order to buy safety for her father’s pack. This doesn’t exactly sit well for Cordelia seeing as she has different plans for her life, even if she doesn’t know what those plans are just yet. Out of fear of what she doesn’t want her life to become, she does the unthinkable and tells her father the one thing he’ll never tolerate from anyone in his pack, especially not his daughter. She tells him no.
As a result, Cordelia learns just what kind of depraved man and alpha her father is and is left a broken, bleeding mess because of it.
After finding kindness and compassion from two strange men who show up at the compound and help her when she is no longer capable of helping herself, Cordelia does the only thing she thinks she can do in order to survive and not be stuck in a world of abuse and misery.
She runs.
Unfortunately for Cordelia, she doesn’t make it very far before she finds herself in trouble again and at the mercy of another male with alpha tendencies. This alpha also comes with a brother by blood and one by choice.
The problem is, Cordelia’s not so sure she could ever find a place in a pack again after everything she’s survived. She won’t have long to figure it out though because, no matter the cost, her father is determined to find her and bring her home.

Warning – Due to certain sensitive sexual subject matter and abusive situations, this book may contain triggers for some people.
It’s also a Reverse Harem book.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Jesus lemme get my head straight after reading this book. If there are a few things you need to know about Mary and her stories here they are…..Her men love FIERCE, Her Women are NOT WEAK, The chemistry is crazy in all the right places, and there will be blood…LOL …but I am serious!!
Now if you read the trigger warning I will say it’s not AS ROUGH of a scene as I was expecting or have read in the past but friends, its hard. Its hard because how can someone who should love and protect you, do that to you!! Its also quickly done and done well so we feel for Cordelia, but mainly so we can understand the shape that Cal and Luca find her in…it was bad…….
Cal, Luca and Darius……they are all so special to Cordelia for their own reasons, but this book is owned by Darius. Dude, he was so scary and then so sweet but so fierce. I mean I don’t think I knew how menacing he was until we see him with his old pack….dang he was hawt!!!
Cal and Luca long for their time for Cordelia but understand and show true patience to be with their girl because make no bones about it, SHE. IS. THEIR. GIRL!
Seeing the story of the impending war due to everything that plays out in the book is making me on edge because the 4 of them need to be on the same page to stick together and to make sure no one feels left out of this unusual mating!!

Uprising: Dark Horizons 1 (Eternally Mated Book 7)

Uprising: Dark Horizons Book 1 (Eternally Mated Book 7) by Valerie Twombly

Goodreads HERE

“We can’t fight evolution, only ride it out and hope the ending is in our favor.” Ryder Mattis

As a former Navy Seal, beating the odds is something Ryder excels at. However, the world has changed and his transformation into a vampire gives survival a whole new meaning. If that isn’t enough to ruin his life, a plague unleashes utter destruction on humanity. He knows he has what it takes to protect those who survive even if they don’t like his rules. What he doesn’t count on is a female with stormy eyes and a will to live getting under his skin.

Kayla has lost everyone she loves to the red death. Surviving the plague is one thing, but a vow made to her dying father puts her under the protection of a predator. Surprised at how her body reacts to Ryder when he feeds, she has a hard choice to make. But when tragedy strikes and forces the vampire to give her his blood, she morphs into something no one could ever predict.

The new world doesn’t come with a handbook and when fate brands them as potential mates, they are not prepared. They can either battle each other, or band together in a fight for survival. The future holds no guarantees, but being alone might be worse than death.

This is a spin-off series and can be read as a standalone or, with the Eternally Mated series.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I know I saw this every time I read a paranormal but It’s my JAM!!! I love love love me some paranormal. I love shifters, vampires, demons, angels, and all the possible additions to a storyline. This book, which is a spin off series, was just what I needed and loved.
I am going to start by saying I have NOT read the Eternally Mated series. However, I will be rectifying that soon. I did not feel I missed anything or was lost at any point of the story. I think the storyline was filled in during this book about what happened in the other series. SHEW right!!!!
So this book is taking place during the end of the world essentially. Ryder and his group of Navy Seals are set to protect the last few remaining humans to help repopulate the world after The Red Death has destroyed everyone. He is one of the original vampires and he has turned a few of his trusted men into vampires to help get the job done. He only asks that females who do stay with them, help feed his men to keep them alive. Pretty decent trade off…surviving death for a few sips of your blood right???
Ryder is getting ready to leave when a sassy, pink haired beauty who is also a pain in his ass shows up and informs him he needs to protect her. Seems Ryder and her dad were Navy buddies. From the start of Kayla and Ryder meeting, the sparks and chemistry sizzle!! I mean they are so hilariously attracted and annoyed by the other it makes for great reading.
Kayla has lost everyone and is bound and determined to make it to this Ryder guy for protection. She surely did not plan on the attraction to the alpha male and his over the top protection of her.
Kayla and Ryder plus another couple soon find a strange mark that they have no clue what it means. Kayla and another soon find out they too have another secret about why they have survived the Red Death when everyone else has died.
On top of all the couple drama, we are dealing with rogue vampires, gross looking demons running amuck annnnd the portal to hell being opened to rid the Earth of humans in general….Yup LOTS happening in the story!!!
I can not wait to read the next story but I will be trying to get the other 6 books of the other series read ASAP too.

MINX

Minx by Maggie Adams

Goodreads HERE

A romantic comedy about friendships, flirtations, and the elusive “Fantasm!”

Hi! I’m Miranda Blake and this is my story. Well, sort of. It’s more like a twisted fairytale, if you believe in them. Except there’s no beautiful, young princess with perky breasts, perfectly coiffed hair and a sassy attitude. I’m closing in on fifty, thirty pounds overweight according to Weight Watchers, and, after nursing two kids and that bitch, gravity, doing her job, I’m lucky the ladies don’t hit my knees. The gorgeous brown mane of hair is slightly frizzy from my ridiculous attempts to recapture my youth by dyeing the hell out of it. As for sassy attitude, well, it wasn’t so long ago that I was a doormat. And the charming prince who sweeps me off my feet into the life of my dreams? I have a dog called Prince, German Shepherd, who knocks me on my ass if I’m in the way when the doorbell rings. Does that count?

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

OMG this book was hilarious!!! I seriously LOVE the characters of the story. Miranda and her crew of best friends were so awesome to read. But the temptation tug of which brother, Reed or Ritter, was great too! Miranda’s friends are seriously the best people around. They lover her 110% and are going to do anything and everything to make sure she gets the HEA with a good guy this time around.

Miranda legit is told by her DB future ex its over. They are getting ready to leave for a cruise when he drops the bomb, she is being replaced by a younger woman and she is to get outta their family home ASAP. Miranda rallies her troops and they set to help her find herself and pick herself back up after 20 years of marriage.

What skills does an outta work housewife, stay at home mom have? Well she has enough to charm a playboy named Ritter into hooking her up with a job at his company. When she meets his very stuck up brother, Reed, she is confused as to how they can be so different.

As the story unfolds, we begin to see different sides to both men. Neither is who we thought they were. Is Ritter the good guy or a DB? Is Reed really an uptight jackass or just a guy protecting his heart????

I seriously snickered so many times reading this book and loved, loved, loved how it all played out.

Revenge (Revenge Series #1)

Revenge, Revenge Series book 1 by Christine Besze

Six years they stole from me.
Six years I’ve done my time.
Six years I’ve waited.
Six years I’ve heard her screams over and over.
No more.
It’s time to collect.
And it’s their blood that will be spilled.

Asher Savage spent his life protecting the innocent, taking monsters off the streets. He never thought he’d become one.
Charlee Vega was a pawn in a game she never knew she was playing. An innocent caught up in a war of greed and hate.
Revenge has fed his monster for years, but it comes at a price. Is it one he’s still willing to have her pay?
She’s a means to an end. A complication he never saw coming. And sometimes those are the most deadly of all.
***This book is a standalone and contains mature/graphic subject matter. For readers 18+***

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

The blurb totally got me for this book. I have never read anything from this author, but the book was so ANTI-HERO that I had to read it. I mean the main dude was going to be totally broken and ruthless so what girl wouldn’t fall in love with him??? I am here to say this book did NOT disappoint at all. I was totally glued to my kindle and could not put it down. The story flowed so well and I was so engaged with each additional characters….gah I need more from this family of brothers!! I mean Ax …come one….Zane…what makes him tick but Asher…holy mother of hotness!!!

So the story starts and we are in picture perfect world. Asher is running home with flowers for his wife and pretty quickly it alllllll turns bad….like real bad. Then we see Asher sitting back and waiting…waiting…waiting. When he is out of prison, he and his brother begin the revenge of Lauren. Poor Charlee is the means to an end for Asher but when he falls for her spirit and fire…he soon realized, with the help of a few punches by his brother, maybe she is more than just the end but maybe she is the beginning he needs???

Charlee loves her papa, but she knows he is an evil man. She knows he is not a good man by any stretch of the imagination but he is her papa!! No matter what, she will love him even when he is a bit possessive of her and over-protective.

When Asher and Charlee meet, the chemistry is oooooooofffffff the charts!! Holy Cow!! The more they trust and respect the other they soon start to care which is totally crazy but then they soon start to lean and rely on the other….People!! This book was crazy good!!!

I LOVED the twist at the end and I cannot wait for more because like I said the brothers need a HEA as well!!

Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor: An After Zombie Tale of Love & Survival (Last of Us Book 1)

by Nikki Landis

Goodreads HERE

The world has gone to shit and the zombie apocalypse is now responsible for wiping out humanity.

One girl believes she’s all alone and the world’s last hope for survival . . . but is she the key, a threat, or something else entirely?

*** Book 1 of a new series, contains mature content ***

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

Zombies make my heart so happy. When my blog got a request to share this books release, I was super excited and reached out to ask for a review copy. OMG am I so happy I did. This book hits all my zombie book expectations…..Zombie encounters, feisty heroine, alpha hero, and plot twists and turns galore! Man was I loving it and unable to put it down!!!

Our heroine, Bailee, is alone after the world went to crap for a year exactly when she stumbles into the hands of the local military group (and uber alpha bossy Sawyer) during a failed scavenger mission. The men know a secret about Bailee, but Sawyer is kinda interested in our feisty girl and wont follow orders just yet to turn her over to the main operations.

We see a lot of push and pull between Saw and Bailee which creates a lot of chemistry!!! But what also is amazing to read, the ZOMBIE ATTACKS!! Yes folks there are a lot of zombies in the book and many different kinds of zombies….this totally made my heart happy. We’ve got slow zombies. We’ve got fast zombies. We’ve got tracker zombies!!? Yikes!!

The books momentum and flow were great for reading. I mean the group was always under attack or in conflict, so it was very fast paced, and action packed!!

My ONLY issue with the book….it seems to flip from 3rd POV to 1st POV through the story. At first, I thought I was a weirdo and reading it wrong, but I found it a few times in the story. I am not a fan of 3rd POV so it took me out of the reading element and then it would drop you back in to 1st POV. Honestly this small issue will not stop me from reading the other books in the continuing series because after the way the story ended I NEED to know what happens to our team of misfits.

I received this book from the author.

What an emotional ride we take with Red and Kylee.

As a fan of the original series, I knew Tank had taken Red in as his own son after everything Nick did to Sass.  So the opening chapter of the book had me going “OH NO!!”  I was so sad to see the way Red finds out about his biological beginnings.  Any child finding out about this news is shocking but then the fact Red shut down and didn’t ask his family made my heart hurt for him.

Kylee has been through so much in her life.  The more information she shares with us about her family and her “before” was heartbreaking.  She has been on the run from people for most of her life.  She is running from someone who wants to destroy her and then she is running from Red and the Hellions.

These two beautifully flawed and hurt individuals find strength and love while dealing with their truth.  They both have to face life head on….Red with his bio dad and Kylee with her family history.  I love how they were both able to help the other deal with the trauma they are enduring but also find strength in their love.

Ya’ll know I am dying to hope Shelley found the bottom on a ravine right??  I am also hoping Crunch gets a good swift kick in the pants from Tank and the rest of his brothers for the shit he pulls.  But Dia, I am so waiting for her story.  She needs to find her HEA because I am dying to see the man who will stand up to all the club brothers and her dad for her heart!!

Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice.

Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works.

When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.

She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

A sadist known for his skill with the cat o’ nines, Rytsar enjoys his popularity with submissives at the dungeon, and is caught off guard by the fire-hot attraction he feels for Samantha, a young Domme.

He knows better than to test those waters, but damn…he just can’t resist her.

When two sexy Dominants collide in the bedroom, passions ignite!
But will Rytsar’s heart survive the inferno it creates?


Goodreads


I received this book from the author.

This was another great look at the dominates when they were college kids way before Brie entered the lives of the men.  I was glad but shocked when we finally got to see the “night” between Samantha and Rytsar played out.  Being a fan of the series, we have heard bits and pieces but to SEE what happened and FEEL Rytsar’s shock and shame was hard to take.  Seeing our strong Russian so broken and in such a dark place, made my heart hurt for him.  I will admit, I feel bad and do understand Samantha’s needs to please him is what caused this entire scene in the first place.

I LOVED seeing Thane, Brad, and Rytsar being fun loving college guys struggling with their family and their lives.  But seeing those bonds form that will last a lifetime is amazing as well.  Seeing the loyalty these men have for one another…..priceless…..I was cheering a bit when Tono popped into the story too!!  Who doesn’t love him????

There is so much in this story that any fan will be devouring the book to learn about our broken and strong Russian who steals everyone’s heart.  Now if he could only have an HEA in the future, I will be a happy reader!!

#NewRelease, #Review, #Shifter, #TrueMates. Alpha Ascending: True Mates Generations 3 by Alicia Montgomery

Wolf shifter Lucas Anderson only knew one thing: humans were scum and not to be trusted. From the moment he was born, his future was already set: to be Alpha of the most powerful Lycan clan in the world. He would do anything to protect his clan and keep their existence a secret. But when a gorgeous,*human* police detective accuses him of murder, his life is turned upside-down and he can’t ignore her or the passion she stirs up in him and his wolf. 

Detective Sofia Selinofoto’s life revolved around putting scumbags in jail and getting justice for the weak and innocent. However, her razor-sharp focus and ethics are put to the test when her murder investigation leads her to CEO billionaire Lucas Anderson. From the moment she sets her eyes on him, the pull of attraction was so strong she almost forgets that he could be a killer. But, she knows he’s hiding something and solving this particular puzzle both scares and thrills her.

Unable to resist each other, they play a dangerous cat-and-mouse game that only brings them closer together and sparks the flames of their desire. When her life is threatened, he knew he would burn the world down to protect her. But, she was still human and not to be trusted. Can he put his prejudices aside and put his faith in her or will he forever want someone he can never truly have?

Find out by reading this sizzling paranormal romance now!
 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.


The True Mates Generations Series is back with Lucas’s book.
Lucas Anderson is the next Alpha of New York and CEO of the Fenrir Corporation.  Sophia Selinofoto is a human detective of the NYPD.
Parts of this story coincided with book 2 which is Lucas’s twin sister’s book so you get a little bit of a view of what happened in those scenes from his point of view which is cool.
Lucas is unlike the other alpha’s in that he changed at a young age due to seeing his sister hurt and  because of that the blood lust caused him to shift.  He still has problems sometimes when he sees someone he loves being hurt and his wolf takes over causing a shift that he has no control over and it can make him very dangerous when he goes through a shift like that.
Sophia is called to the Blood Moon night club due to a disturbance and sees him after such a shift.
What happens next is fate putting them into each other’s path by her investigating a murder of a man that has ties to him and she can’t help but look more closely into him.
Lucas doesn’t want anything to do with the human, but his wolf is always calm around her.  When she realizes that he is not who she’s looking for and he realizes that maybe his wolf is right to want her things change.
Montgomery does a great job at showing us how hard it is to still  be a woman in what is still considered to be a man’s field of work and how hard it is to still to the right thing sometimes.  She also does a wonder job at showing us how hard Lucas works to control his wolf when it gets agitated and wants it to shift.
I can not wait to see what happens next after the ending that she wrote to this story either because it was a totally out of nowhere.
