Manhattan Dragon (The Treasure of Paragon, #3)

Deadly secrets. Hidden enemies. Colliding histories.

She’s supposed to be dead.

For Rowan Valor, faking her own death is a regular necessity. How else would an immortal dragon manage to live in a place like Manhattan for close to three hundred years? But changing her identity leaves the community center she founded vulnerable, and for the sake of the children, she must find a way to undo the damage.

He’s leading a new life.

Human detective Nick Grandstaff entered law enforcement to escape his violent roots. But closing the door on his past has resulted in an unnatural obsession with his work. Perhaps it’s for the best that his longest relationship has been with his dog. What woman would choose to be with someone with such a dark and tangled history?

To have a future together, both must face their past.

When Nick investigates a case that leads him to Rowan’s door, their passionate connection promises to heal old wounds and grant them both the once-in-a-lifetime love they deserve. But fighting a common enemy entangles them in the dangerous supernatural underworld of Manhattan where power is shifting, and unbeknownst to Rowan, a former ally has become a deadly enemy.

Manhattan Dragon (The Treasure of Paragon #3) by Genevieve Jack

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

I am such a huge fan of this series so when I saw Rowan’s book was next, I couldn’t wait to read it.  Rowan’s story did not disappoint at all that is for sure.  Seeing the only sister in this large dragon family get her HEA was awesome especially since we have heard about her from Tobias a lot in his story.

Rowan is sassy, smart, and compassionate which is why Nick is so drawn to her.  He is the perfect match to our “princess.”  Nick is overwhelmed, to say the least, after being thrust into the new world but being with his woman made everything worth it.

The story was very fast paced with a lot of twists and turns plus some steamy fun scenes.  I think Harriett stole the scenes when she was in them and loved her as a secondary character.  The banter between her and Rowan was pure comedy especially in the scene about her owning a $8,000 handbag.

I loved the continued story of the siblings needing to find each other and look forward to more in the series!!

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

First up, LOVED IT!!  Great start to a new series!!  I loved all the characters and how the chemistry was blazing hot!!

Cole lost his mate and couldn’t handle it so he totally peaced out on his family.  He felt destroyed and lost with out her.  Briar lost her sister when Cole’s mate was taken.  She was devastated to lose her as well.

Cole returns to his pack when he learns Briar is to be mated to someone else.  She has loved him and is super stoked when he comes back.  The couple have this tragic loss they both suffered together yet alone.  Briar is so worried when Cole tried to take her as his mate because she feared his love was not the full love she wanted and expected in a mate.  I love her strong will and I love his fierce heart.

The couple must overcome a lot of issues but especially a rogue trying to kill the wolves.  Cole’s gotta get his stuff figured out and save his girl before something happens to her and their HEA is lost!!

Hell hath no fury…. Like a Jimmy Choo wearing woman from Palm Beach being forced to wear hiking boots in the middle of the woods. Ha! Right from the very beginning, Katie is a pain in the rear and you just know she is going to be trouble. Women, even the strong ones, are all trouble, lol! But, with that being said, so are the boys….all trouble!

Fawn and Katie are both from Palm Beach and Fawn is going to marry the Alpha, Bo, of Big Timber. Katie is dragging her feet, complaining about everything saying nothing good will come of this. In the meantime, the packs in the area are all hurting from Kallus’ attack. Dax has reluctantly assumed the position as Alpha of Crazy Peak. His pack has suffered greatly and he goes to Big Timber asking for help. Unfortunately, Big Timber doesn’t want to help as they are dealing with their own issues as well, but none of the packs are communicating. Dax is going crazy with The Hunger. Katie all of a sudden gets incredibly sick. And then things get really crazy. Pack members are coming up missing or dead. Other packs do come to help. We are then introduced to a cult like group obsessed with exterminating abominations. The girls come up missing. The guys are going crazy. And then, and then, and then…… 

Dax’s and Katie’s story will rival many. These two are at a point that they can’t live without each other. True mates. The story is action packed. Full of drama, suspense, and beautiful magic. Once you start the story, you will have a hard time putting it down. I started laughing from the start thinking about how much alike Katie and I are. And watching how these girls keep all the guys on their toes is amazing. It was an incredible story of love while overcoming discriminations and injustices. A beautiful HEA seeing the mates come together as well as the packs. Loving this addition to A Wolf’s Hunger.

#review #Shifter #SeriesStarter #Novellas #FreeKU – Cole’s Salvation (Black Hills Shifters #1) by Elisa Leigh

Cole's Salvation (Black Hills Shifters, #1)

Cole is the oldest of his siblings and is their clan’s alpha, since the death of his father. He gave up long ago thinking he would ever find his mate.

For months he’s been restless, on the verge of coming unglued. When his sister sets him up on a blind date, he almost loses it. She should know he’d only ever date his mate. When his sister refuses to cancel the date, he goes to let her down gently only to find that his mate is waiting for him.

Follow the Major family, a group of black bear shifters living in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Dealing with the death of their father and hiding their shifting abilities from the small town they’re from is nothing compared to the moment they meet their mates and claim them as theirs.

These are safe, interconnected novellas, guaranteed happily ever afters, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you glued to your Kindle.


Goodreads


I purchased this book.

Who doesn’t love a shifter series??  I mean they are my jam!  So when I saw a series written by 2 new to me authors, I jumped.  Another thing I loved was the fact the series is about a family of bear shifters.  I love books with the theme of family strongly woven into the theme of the book.

This book starts out with Cole’s alpha father being found murdered.  Now fast forward and he is a grumpy alpha shifter dealing with his 3 siblings.  He loves them but they are kinda on his last nerve.

When his only sister butts in and sets him up on a blind date at a sleezy bar, he goes just to save the girl from being taken advantage of.  When he enters…BOOM…his life changes in an instant.

Aubree loves her new friend but she is not to sure about this whole blind date thing.  When she sees a growly man entering the bar she is scared and intrigued at the same time over who he is.  The sparks fly immediately between the two and they soon are navigating this mating pull.

Cole was killing me with his over the top alpha bossy but Aubree sure put him in his place and let him know Girlfriend is not playing that way.

The story reintroduced the murder plot because the bad people are around again, so Cole and his siblings are trying to keep Aubree safe while investigating what’s happening.

I totally enjoyed the story buuuuuuut …here is when the shoe drops……I would recommend getting another editing of the story.  I am NOT a huge grammar Nazi but this book has several spots where I had to stop and reread to decipher what it should have said.  There were spots where the story didn’t flow very well and was a bit choppy.  However, even with those issues I am still looking forward to book 2!!

Hey Girl Hey!
I’m Elisa Leigh and I write romance books that are short and steamy with a ton of heart. They will leave you satisfied, but wanting more.

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

#WOTR19 #FavoriteBooks #TwinsieDee Top 5 Favorite Book from Janurary-June 2019

 

Goodreads –https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/31182685-forever-ride

Amazon-https://www.amazon.com/Forever-Ride-Hellions-Motorcycle-Club-ebook/dp/B00KU6IYW0/ref=sr_1_13?crid=3A052S9XV1Z3R&keywords=chelsea+camaron&qid=1560727175&s=gateway&sprefix=Chelsea+cama%2Caps%2C179&sr=8-13

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can’t be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah ‘Sass’ Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a ‘normal’ life, she has settled. She’s committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She’s found a way to be content.

Things aren’t always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it’s still a hollow shell.

He’s a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He’s Frank the ‘Tank’ Oleander, Haywood’s Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he’s forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he’s holding onto. The coma he can’t pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She’s sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

My Review –

Life as the Hellions motorcycle clubs VPs daughter leaves Savannah “Sass” hasn’t always been easy she has always struggles with  herself about wanting to feel safe and being away from the life that comes with the club and turning her back on family. Tank on the other hand is a playboy that doesn’t care what happens he’s ride or died for his club at no cost. When Sass and her best friend Doll are sent on a ride for their safety Tank ends up getting hurt and ends up in a coma. Once returned Sass visits him everyday and her new rebound of a douche boyfriend makes her choose her life with him or her family the only thing she ever knows. Making the hardest decision of her life Sass leaves the only thing she’s ever know behind and the wonder if Tank will ever wake up. Will the love Tank has for Sass be enough to pull him out of his coma, and get back to her? Will Sass find happiness outside of the only thing she’s ever know? Is forever long enough or nothing that will happen. I’m so in love with this series Chelsea just knows how to pull you in and make you fell like you are apart of this club and are family with them.

She’s a single mom, kid-free for a week. He’s the sexy, young substitute teacher in the apartment next door. She moans, he knocks and together they both find something new.

My Review-

This story is an amazing short, showing Monica a newly single divorced mom of 2 kids will do or what happens when she’s alone for the first time for a week without her kids and meets the hot sexy younger next door neighbor. Discovering just who she is and letting her inner sexiness out for a week and it might just be more then a one night or one week stand.

What happens when happily ever after isn’t happy? When everything you thought you knew changes?

My Review-

This story follows Reese and Andie 2 of the very best friends ever, with magic band aids, and who puts Reece’s pieces and Andie mints on their ice cream because that’s what friends do. Wait I’m getting ahead of myself yes those  girls are part of this story but they bring the cute factor. Aubrey is a newly single divorced mom of Reece after 12 years of marriage Aubrey has found herself not knowing who she really is anymore. All she’s known is being a housewife and mom so her best friend Niki makes her dress up find her sex appeal again and takes her to the club. There she’s dancing and having the time of her life when this extremely sexy man comes to her on the dance floor. Is he the knight and shining armor she’s been missing? Well this is were all the roads beginning and all the twist turns and secrets start but how much will be let out and how many hearts will be broken? With children involved how much far will Aubrey go to sacrifice her own happiness?

Rebel Lynch has spent two hundred years searching for balance between his human side and his inner wolf. As a den President of The Feral Breed Motorcycle Club, a lack of control over the beast within isn’t just a pain in the tail, it’s a death sentence. One served by his club brothers: the judges, jury, and executioners of the wolf-shifting community.

At Amnesia Gentlemen’s Club, customers and staff check their real-world identities at the door. Charlotte, one of the club’s best waitresses, ditched her legit career in corporate IT because she needs the kind of income those pesky IRS folks can’t track. When the smart-mouthed bombshell pulls a gig serving a private party, she expects nothing more than a few extra tips. That is until dirty-talking Rebel Lynch strolls into the room looking like sin incarnate, flashing motorcycle club colors, and blasting Charlotte’s expectations about work, life, and love straight to hell.

One glance at Charlotte and Rebel knows she’s his fated mate. But a wolf shifter is attacking women at the club, threatening Charlotte’s life, and putting the entire shifter community at risk of exposure. Rebel and his Feral Breed MC brothers must find the crazed shifter before he strikes again. If Rebel can’t uncover the new monster in their midst–and learn to rein in the protective instincts of a fully mated alpha–his future with Charlotte will be dead on arrival.

My Review-

When you find yourself with a cruse of being able to turn into a wolf you need to have a few things in your life 1) being able to find your mate and 2) Having a brotherhood people that understand and help shape you into who you are. That how life was for Rebel only thing was he had his brotherhood but after 200 years  living he still hasn’t  found his mate and started to believe that he was going to be alone with his brothers. Until he walked into the local strip club to help try and figure out what was going on within the town and within the shifters. That’s when his heart started racing and he about let out his inner wolf as he laid eyes on Cherry the cute waitress at the club. How was he going to protect her if she was involved he didn’t know. All he knew was that he needed to do whatever he could to keep her safe if someone laid a hand on her he was going to make sure they paid. I love this book and I need more..just don’t question it just go buy it.

Our childhoods shape who we become as adults, but what happens if you can’t remember yours?Ivy Lane has no memories of her birth family. She can barely recall her childhood spent bouncing from home to home before becoming the foster daughter of an infamous psychiatrist and serial killer John McCourt and his wife Ester. Despite Dr. McCourt being convicted of terrible crimes, Ivy knows in her heart that what everyone says about him isn’t true. Ivy’s all grown up and after years of therapy, and a stint in jail, she’s desperate to prove everyone wrong and find a way to get back to McCourt Manor as soon as possible. What Ivy finds when she gets there however isn’t the sweet, family of her memories, and she soon realizes there was much more to being Lucky Number 23 than she realized. **Lucky Number 23 is a Suspense Thriller with dark romance elements that some may find taboo. Themes in this book may not be suitable for all readers**

My Review-

When all you know is a life of evil and your forced to try and get you life on the right path. Well that’s how it is for 22 year old Ivy, from the age of 8 she was put into the foster care system after her mother died and family after family she was told there was something wrong with her that she was so dark nothing was able to fix her. Finally she was sent to the McCourt’s were she became their lucky number 23 the 23rd foster kid, and she was treated so differently then the other 22 foster kid she became one too the family. But that all changed when on of the kid got out and told police what was really going on behind closed doors at the manor. Ivy then spends the next 12 years trying to find a way back to her to the only family she’s known and its more difficult then even she expected. This book was amazing and dark and keeps you on the edge of your et until the very end with more twist and turns then you will ever see coming.

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


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. (

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


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

Goodreads HERE

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

Goodreads HERE

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.

#Review – Witching Hour (Mystic Hallows Harem #3) by Nikki Landis

Witching Hour (Mystic Hallows Harem #3)

The witching hour has begun….

My essence has been stolen. 

Tricked by the rogue witch that’s attacked Mystic Hallows from the beginning of Samhain, I’m drained and weakened in a dungeon cell far from home. Each passing hour brings me closer to the edge as I teeter on the brink of insanity. Fantasy and reality blur, my mind deteriorates, and I can’t distinguish between friend and foe.

My Cosan is too far away. I need their help to break me and Damian out of this hellhole. Secrets to Damian’s past and those of the Nosferatu bloodline are held within these stone walls and become the focal point in a ruthless battle for control. My only help comes from the sarcastic vampire that wants to drain my blood as much as seek revenge upon Dmitri. The vicious twin brother who tarnished the Rockcastle name and joined forces with the damned.

When everything is set in motion, each hour on the clock brings destruction closer. Every tick counts down. I only have twenty-four hours to restore my fractured soul before the changes are permanent. Confronting my enemy is the only choice. It’s time Roman English found out the power of the Salem bloodline once and for all – and I’m not the only one waiting to take him down.

Witching Hour is episode 3 of 13 in the Mystic Hallows Harem. *** This is a slow burn reverse harem that increases in heat level with each new episode. ***

Welcome to Mystic Hallows, home to thirteen witch covens that keep the veil between the living and the dead closed. It’s a world of monsters, mayhem, and magic where the ancestors of the powerful Salem witches of the past struggle to keep balance. Discover supernatural mystery, thrills, danger, and romance in a place where everyone has a deep, dark, and often deadly secret.

“Your life is nothing but immortal creatures, magic, and near-death experiences. You think this is morbid?”

This episode has really drawn me in and is super exciting for me because we find out so much about Damian’s past. Cassie and Damian have been caught and are locked in a dungeon. Cassie’s essence has been stolen. The Cosan is not near to help. Who do we look to for help? A Necromancer, of course! The trouble that everyone gets into and the company they keep will certainly keep you on your toes. This one is another page turner that is nail biting to say the least. Dmitri, Damian’s brother plays a key role in this episode but leaves you wondering exactly what his motives are. Can he be trusted? Can Roman be stopped? What is going to happen next? The questions going through my head are endless. I am waiting on pins and needles for the next episode. I can’t wait!!

#Review – reak Show (Harem of Freaks #1) by Crystal Ash

Freak Show (Harem of Freaks #1)

Who knew cages and freaks would set me free?

Growing up in trailer trash hell, the carnival was my only happy memory as a child. I held onto the magic of that memory until I could finally escape. And like Alice down the rabbit hole, I entered a world beyond my wildest dreams. A world with a shiny, colorful exterior, but filled with rot and corruption underneath.

But no matter what these people put me through, I can’t go back to my life before.

The man with the biggest secret is the only one I can trust. He’s dangerous, but he’s safety to me. He’s broken, but he put me back together. I’ll keep his secret. My heart hopes he’ll keep me. But in a hall of mirrors, how do you know what’s real or an illusion?

Every grueling night onstage is building up to a final show: The Wolf Man. Is he real or a hoax? Why do I feel such a pull to find out his truth?

Care to join me on this ride? Step right up.

**Harem of Freaks is a slow-build reverse harem series. The heroine will add to her harem and build multiple relationships as the series continues.**

The circus and wolves!!! Yes please! Melody has had a terrible life. As soon as she hits 18 she’s out! She has very little but takes off anyway. With nothing to lose she goes to join the circus. The mysterious circus full of wonder! What’s wrong with that? Well……she soon finds out that the circus can be a cruel place. While she is trying to find her place and earn a few dollars so she can make it she ends up befriending Connor who doesn’t want any friends. I love this duo! I bet they get hot and steamy later on….just saying….or hoping, LOL!

“Because the carnival was the only glimpse of happiness during my childhood,” I admitted. “The music, the games, the shows. I was devastated when all the fun and mystery and wonder came to an end. I didn’t understand that it would be temporary, I wanted to live there and be happy forever.”

Ok, so without telling you too much about what happens…..The beginning of the story starts out with a short snippet of the werewolves. Then it immediately goes into Mel and her leaving her home and getting to the circus. I was so caught up in the circus world and Mel dealing with the crap given to her there that I almost forgot about the wolves! OMG! There were little bits here and there to remind you of the wolves but the world building was so awesome I could picture myself right beside Mel. And these crazy characters just thicken the tension like crazy! This was a quick read but totally worth it! AND…when the wolves come back to the story….WOW! Once I started I couldn’t put the book down. I had to finish. I am hooked on the harem of freaks! Can’t wait to continue the story!
