#Review #Shifter The Blackstone Dragon Heir (Blackstone Moutain Book 1) by Alicia Montgomery

Featuring the story of Matthew Lennox, son of Henry and Riva Lennox from “The Last Blackstone Dragon”

The Blackstone Mountain Series begins with dragon shifter Matthew Lennox, as he tries to woo the mysterious new girl who arrives in Blackstone.

Catherine Archer is running away from her past and those trying to hurt her. She knows she needs to keep her head down and falling for a dragon shifter isn’t exactly keeping a low profile. She needs to resist him, for his and her sake, but can she ignore her heart?

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

Oh I love a good shifter romance and Montgomery has written a good one once again. We have it all in this book: Russian criminals, a fire breathing dragon, a broody lion, a mysterious woman, and hot sex!!!
Matthew Lennox is the newly appointed CEO of the Lennox Corporation, he is also the oldest of the Lennox children and a dragon shifter, he is also the workaholic of the twins and a dragon shifter.
Catherine Archer is a bartender at The Den, a bar in Blackstone which is a shifter town. She is on the run and not looking for anything.
When Matthew is dragged to The Den by his brothers and cousin he is immediately attracted to Catherine from across the room and doesn’t know why. He goes back to see her again because he can’t keep her off his mind, he sits and drinks becoming more mad as men keep flirting with her. LOL!!! His Dragon only wants her and has since the moment he spotted her.
When he saves her from some drunks after work he actually gets to talk with her and has the shock of his life when she can do something that no one outside his family and do.
Yes, they get together fast in this story but just like any other shifter story when you find your mate you just can’t wait. That is one thing that with shifter stories I just love.
Catherine and Matthew are a great couple and when Catherine stops fighting herself she can see it too.
Jason, Matthew’s twin, his book is going to be a doozy and I can’t wait to see him get his!!

#Review #Christmas #Shifter Holly Jolly Lycan Christmas ( A True Mates Stand-alone) by Alicia Montgomery

Despite becoming one of the most famous celebrity chefs in New York, Dante Muccino’s wolf is restless. After watching all his friends and family pair up with their True Mates, the animal inside him wants what they have too. Children. Family. And a woman to call his own. When he runs into rival Holly Taylor, his wolf is intrigued, but the frosty chef won’t give him the time of day.

Holly Taylor’s life felt like a big juggling act. All she wants to do is hide out in the kitchen and create fabulous and delicious dishes, and earn the respect of her peers. But life has thrown her extra things to juggle, and she didn’t need one more, particularly in the form of Dante Muccino. But there’s something about the easygoing chef that’s melting the icy walls she spent years to build. He’s a distraction she can’t afford, and if she’s not careful, she may lose more than her heart to the handsome chef.

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

It’s that time of year again. Time for family gatherings, Christmas movies on tv, Christmas music on the radio, Santa in the malls, and children trying to be oh so good to stay on the nice list. The one thing that’s good to have all year round is SHIFTERS!!!!!!
Alicia Montgomery takes us back to the True Mates world with Dante Muccino.
We’ve met Dante before, his sister is the Lupa of New Jersey and his brother in law the Alpha of New York.
Dante is a celebrity chef, now that his family’s restaurant has taken off. He has had his pick of women, but now having watched his family and friends find their true mates he realizes that there’s more out there the short term relationships he has had, and he’s ready for it.
Holly Taylor is the Head Chef at the new French Restaurant across the street from Muccino’s. To the staff and the people she went to culinary school with she is known as the Ice Queen. A lot has changed in her life in the last year, her brother and sister in law were murdered, she took custody of their daughter so she won’t be put into foster care, she left her job in Paris so that she could bring her up in the states, and helped to start this new restaurant. When she and Dante first meet they get off on the wrong foot and it takes awhile to get back on the right one. However, when they first meet there is also a spark of attraction, but Holly has no time for that between the restaurant and Hannah she has no time for a man in her life.
What happens next is a family finding their way to each other, Russian mobsters, Holly finding out that lycans exist, and Christmas.
Christmas is truly a magical time to bring a True Mate couple together.
Montgomery has done a excellent job at writing a Christmas love story. I have a feeling we have seen the last of these couples, but what a wonderful way to see them go.

#Review – The Draqon’s Queen (Shifters Of Kladuu #4) by Pearl Foxx

The Draqon's Queen (Shifters of Kladuu, #4)

 

She just wants time to heal her broken heart. Instead, she finds her true calling astride a sexy, grizzled Draqon with fire colored wings.

Niva returned to Kladuu for the Alpha of Clan Vilka, but when he took another mate, her heart shattered. To pick up the pieces, she travels to the Draqons’ hive with their menacing, gruff leader. But behind his black eyes lies the one man who may be able to put her pieces back together.

Years ago, Zayd lost his Queen in a battle that left him scarred and full of self-loathing. But when a beautiful young human comes to live at his hive high in the snow-capped mountains on Kladuu, his heart begins to thaw. Flying in his Draqon form has always been about harnessing his rage, but with Niva on his back, he finds a freedom he never felt, even with his Queen.

When Kladuu is threatened, Zayd must face his fear for Niva’s safety and accept her as his rider and new Queen, or it may be the end of the planet they both call home.

* The Draqon’s Queen is book four in the Shifters of Kladuu and should be read after The Vilka’s Captive for a consistent series experience. *

A fiery story! Niva’s story is one of my favorites! Meek Niva is able to talk Zayd into taking her back to the Draqon hive with him. Zayd is compelled to bring her with him, and has no idea why, but it is killing him inside trying to figure it out. Niva wants to put her life on Earth and life with the Vilka’s behind her once and for all. She just wants to find her place and be accepted. She is drawn to Zayd and him to her but they try to fight it. Zayd has experienced a major heartbreak and coming to terms with this is putting Niva in harm’s way. In the past books the Vilka’s and Draqon’s have always had issues with each other. With impending doom on the horizon that’s putting them all at risk they are forging an alliance. The question is finding out if it will be worth it and if they can all be saved. The push and pull between Niva and Zayd is fire and ice. Hot and cold all at the same time.  The story and the blooming love will bring you through a range of emotions from being happy and laughing, on the verge of tears then making your hear t pound with the suspenseful twists. The world of Kladuu is simply intriguing! I would visit if I could. Until then, I will continue the series as it keeps getting better and better!

#Review #Shifter. The Last Blackstone Dragon by Alicia Montgomery

 

Henry “Hank” Lennox was the last of his family of dragon shifters, and heir to the crumbling Blackstone empire. In order to protect his people and his legacy, he decides on the unthinkable: buy himself a wife to produce the next generation and secure the future of his family. It was a purely business transaction, so he never thought the bride he meets on his wedding day could also be his mate.

Riva Sinclair would do anything to save her father and their family business, even going into an arranged marriage with a dragon shifter. It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience, a contract that stated she was bought and paid for. Still, she never expected to be so attracted to her husband, and the sky-high walls she put up to protect her heart are starting to crumble.

The same circumstances that brought to them together are about to tear them apart. Can they learn to trust each other or will their pasts destroy the fragile feelings that are only starting to bloom?

 

This is a prequel to a new shifter series by Alicia Montgomery and as you can tell from the title it’s not about wolves.
Hank Lennox is just as the title says the last dragon in a town founded by his ancestor. The town of Blackstone is special in that all shifters are welcome and the Lennox Corporation that mines the second hardest material in the world Blackstone. The Lennox Corporation also employs shifters and pays for everything the town has from schools, to the town’s infrastructure.
As the last dragon Hank needs a wife and since he isn’t dating anyone and everyone knows that dragons aren’t like other shifters and have one true mate, he decides to acquire one who’s father needs help.
Riva Sinclair comes home to find her fiancé has damaged her family’s company, is wanted by the FBI, and has ran off.
The only way to save the company is be agreeing to marry and give a heir to Hank.
Riva finds herself married to a grouchy dragon with a *itchy sister in law and living in a run down castle. When the two of them start communicating they realize they actually like each other, maybe even love each other, and Hank even realizes that the myths about dragons not having a real mate aren’t true, because Riva is his.
This story does it’s job of setting the storyline for Montgomery’s new series. A series that is going to be a mix of shifters is awesome and I can’t wait for it.
This a a free story for Alicia Montgomery’s newsletter subscribers, so if you like shifters and want to be ready when her new series starts, or just want to know more about her please sign up!!

#Review – Dark Dreams and Dead Things (Dead Things #2) by Martina McAtee

Dark Dreams and Dead Things (Dead Things, #2)

 

17-year-old November Lonergan spent her whole life feeling like an outsider. She was right. She’s a reaper like her mother; like her two cousins, Kai and Tristin. The supernatural world believes they are part of a prophecy to save them from an evil known as the Grove. Ember just wants to survive high school and fix the fallout from bringing back her friend.

Old enemies are lurking; waiting for their opportunity to strike but the pack has a new problem. A group of legendary hunters has resurfaced, threatening the reapers and anybody who stands with them. They are making good on their threats too; attacking those closest to the pack.

Their only hope of defeating the Legionaries involves trusting a stranger to perform a dangerous spell to advance Ember and her cousin’s powers. But Ember has a secret; a secret she can’t tell the pack. One that leaves the pack vulnerable.

An attack on pack allies, leaves one member of the group injured and another missing, along with a mysterious girl named Evangeline who may play a bigger part in this than any of them realize. As the Legionaries are closing in, the pack must trust their enemies, enter hostile territories, and play a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a psychopath. Their entire plan lynches on a dangerous bargain, but rescuing one member of the pack could mean losing another in their place…possibly forever.

It’s amazing when an author can continue a story and make it just as great, if not better, than the first. Martina, my hat’s off to you! After reading the first I just had to know what happened. I didn’t realize how addicting this story was until I finished the first… and the second…then had nowhere to go (bring on book 3!). This story is still witty and funny but, as the title indicates, it is dark. I felt like it’s about finding a way to fight the monsters you can’t see. Ember and the crew have experienced it all. Knife fights, blood rituals, and deaths. Or at least they thought they did. Then you throw a prophecy in the midst of the craziness and all the freaks come out! While Ember and her cousins are trying to figure out what exactly they are themselves and how to harness their power, they now have to prepare for a war that they didn’t realize they were part of. It seems all they can get is a bunch of half-truths, but in true paranormal fashion the fight is on! And of course we have some new characters! It’s very Mace-centric! In the first book Mace is our resident bad guy, but kinda good, maybe, lol! But he is also very mysterious and we never really get a good look at what happened to him or what his story was. Well he is the bad guy I just had to know more about. Thank the gods Martina gives us his backstory! It explains soooo much about him. And Silas, well he is very special, the kind you love to hate to love. He is a new constant in the story that will keep you trying to figure out his angle. As with the first story this one is very intense but it is darker. It is nail biting, keep you on the edge of your seat, suspenseful reading. I can’t say much about what happens because there are so many twists and turns and I don’t want to give anything away. Absolute intense sequel and soooooo good! Definite must read! I can’t wait for the next!

#Review – The Vilka’s Captive (Shifters Of Kladuu #3) by Pearl Foxx

The Vilka's Captive (Shifters of Kladuu, #3)

She risked everything to save her sister.

Now she’ll need his help to survive an alien planet she never could have imagined.

Refusing to believe her sister died during her Falconer Elite flight exam, Linnea Quincy infiltrates a flesh trading ring and is hand-delivered to an enemy camp on Kladuu. But she’s not the only captive there. Her cell-mate happens to be tall, dark, and brooding… and the son of the enemy.

Nestan hasn’t seen his people in six months. Trapped in his father’s new pack of rebel Vilkas, he is beaten, starved, and ridiculed for his loyalty to the Alpha his father murdered. All the best parts of him are stripped away, and he is becoming more beast than man. Until a human woman arrives to camp with beautiful curves and a constant smile. Before she is sold to another clan, they escape into the wilderness of Kladuu with enemies at their heels and the only home Nestan has ever known far, far away.

If they can survive Savas, the man-eating Katu, and a fire-breathing, acid-spitting Draqon baby, they may just return to the ones they love… and find each other.

This is book three and Nestan’s story. Nestan is the son of Savas who is dealing in the flesh trade which involves trading human women for pleasure/slavery. When Savas went rogue he continued the flesh trade and took his son, Nestan, with him. Nestan has never agreed with his father’s ways and has always ended up a punching bag or someone to talk down to. Linnea is a human and stows away on a flesh trading ship to try and find her sister. When she is brought to the camp things get really intense. Linnea and Nestan face some trials with each other and were jailed together in Savas’s camp. Things get complicated….They escape but help a Draqon baby that was imprisoned too. This trio is then on the run in the jungle trying to get back to his Vilkan pack to give warning about the incident. Along the way they are faced with many obstacles but this trio just works. I love the world of Kladuu and the characters in the books. This book has a lot of diversity and how this diversity is overcome is truly incredible. The story is fast paced, action packed, and steamy but with a lot of real life struggles that most people face every day. I am truly enamored with these characters and this world. While this story gets pretty deep on an emotional level there is the perfect amount of wit, laughter and steaminess in there as well. One of my favorite lines near the beginning is “Shape-shifting wolfmen were hard enough to swallow, but this is like some kind of ridiculous fantasy novel.” And it doesn’t stop here. The best part about this couple is they find a purpose within themselves with each other. I’m loving this series!

#WOTR18 #MagicAndMayhemWorld #Paranormal Wicked *itch by Teresa Gabelman

What do tattoos, witches, vampires, a sexy shifter, and an earring-wearing cat have in common…? Definitely something WICKED!

Being a woman in the tattoo business isn’t easy, but Wicked makes it work. But being a witch with a headbanging, rock ‘n’ roll familiar, and having a sexy panther shifter as a landlord makes life… interesting. Throw in some vampire warriors and a whole town of shifters, and things are bound to get a little crazy.

Drop in and visit the town of Assjacket for this wickedly hilarious mixture of paranormal personalities.

 

 

 

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

Gableman has once again given us a strong woman to root for with Wicked, it doesn’t hurt that she also gives us a hottie of a shifter with Thorne McAllister.
On the outskirts of Assjacket, Virginia, yes you heard that right Assjacket, there is a tattoo parlor run by a witch name Wicked. Along with her familiar, a sarcastic rock and roll loving cat named Bruce, she runs her shop and sticks to herself. After all that’s the way it’s been all her life.
Once her shop was actually in the town, but since its a shifter town and a lot of human’s don’t come to it she moved so that she would have more customers. She also moved so that no one in town would get her by her actions of helping a witch friend of her in need. Thorne, ah Thorne, is her yummy panther landlord. She wants to jump and tattoo that yummy panther, but she fights it.
With her last VC Warrior book Gableman introduced two new characters, sisters who are witches and now she has given us another.
I laughed my butt off with this story. Bruce keeps Wicked on her toes and when the VC Warrior Steve comes to town I really couldn’t contain the laughter.
Thorne is a yummy shifter that knows what he wants and what he wants is Wicked, he has wanted her from the moment he saw her, but he has a hard time convincing her of that.
This step into the Magic and Mayhem Kindle World is a awesome step for Gableman. We get strong and funny new characters and a kick a** story, one that still brings us a piece of our beloved VC Warriors.
I hope we catch another glimpse of Wicked, Thorne, and Bruce in the future.

#Review – Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things (Dead Things #1) by Martina McAtee

Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things (Dead Things, #1)

 

17 year old Ember Denning has made an art of isolating herself. She prefers the dead. She spends her days skipping school in old cemeteries and her nights hiding from her alcoholic father at the funeral home where she works. When her own father dies, Ember learns her whole life is a lie. Standing in the cemetery that’s been her sanctuary, she’s threatened by the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen and rescued by two people who claim to be her family. They say she’s special, that she has a supernatural gift like them…they just don’t know exactly what it is.

They take her to a small Florida town, where Ember’s life takes a turn for the weird. She’s living with her reaper cousins, an orphaned werewolf pack, a faery and a human genius. Ember’s powers are growing stronger, morphing into something bigger than anything anybody anticipated. Ember has questions but nobody has answers. Nobody knows what she is. They only know her mysterious magical gift is trying to kill them and that beautiful dangerous boy from the cemetery may be the only thing standing between her and death.

As Ember’s talents are revealed so are the secrets her father hid and those in power who would seek to destroy her. What’s worse, saving Ember has put her cousins in danger and turned her friend’s lives upside down. Ember must learn to embrace her magic or risk losing the family she’s pieced together.

First, this cover! I mean, who wouldn’t check the book out with a cover like this?! Second, the premise of the book promises lots of supernatural and ghouls alike! I mean, duh! YES, PLEASE! I have not read a story like this before. It definitely takes the paranormal world to a new level. This story is hilarious, witty and a bit on the morbid side in a fantastical way. Ember is just a teenage girl who is trying to get through life. She has had a terrible childhood and when her alcoholic father dies her world really does turn upside down. Her life goes from complicated to unrecognizable. There is a huge amount of characters ranging from our softies to the baddies. Most have a supernatural ability. And when they are all put together the story explodes! Naturally we have many secrets that are going through the process to be revealed but most truths come with more questions. Ember is really just trying to figure herself out and when she finally finds where she is supposed to be she isn’t sure if she can live up to what everyone expects her to be. She is drawn to the dead, like a moth to a flame, and she has no idea why. What I love about this book is how the story comes to life. The author does an incredible job with bringing all of the characters into play and giving them all a voice. We get to experience the monsters, illusions, redemption, fear, doubt, jealousy….just all the feels! This is absolutely one of my new favorite books. In fact, when I finished the book I went right out and purchased the second because I HAD TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED! And I was not let down in the slightest. Trust me, you need to read this!

#Review – SHIFT (Mackenzie Grey #1) by Karina Espinosa

SHIFT (Mackenzie Grey: Origins, #1)

 

It’s hard enough being an undergraduate student, an intern at Downtown Manhattan’s police station, and a bouncer at a local bar. Add her now ex-boyfriend who recently dumped her for the school’s resident bimbo—oh, and she’s a werewolf.
Mackenzie Grey meets her match when she is kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack and tossed between Sebastian and Jonah—the Alpha and the Beta. Being a lone-wolf in the city is dangerous, and now that the Pack has found her, so can every supernatural being in the Tri-State area. And not even her sarcastic, smart mouth can get her out of this.
When a string of kidnappings involves Mackenzie in supernatural politics, she questions her new acquaintances and finds unlikely allies. Can she escape Pack law and keep her freedom—or will she be condemned to an unwanted path?

 

Goodreads

 

 

 

This is such a great book! A kickass heroine who is bending all the rules and showing she can play with the big boys! I actually won this book during a book release party. I have never heard of this author but I do LOVE a good shifter book. I was a little put off at the first sentence because it starts with how her ex-boyfriend left her for a bimbo. I didn’t want the book to be a bunch of high school type stuff but I was proven wrong and very fast. Mackenzie is this college student who is a werewolf. She is not sure how it happened and has no one to talk with about this change. She has an amazing friend, Amy, who reminds me of the saying “dynamite comes in small packages”. A trio of werewolves doesn’t make her quiver. Mackenzie has a strength and confidence about her that gets her a job as a bouncer at a nightclub. She runs into the local pack and this becomes trouble. She is still trying to wrap her head around the whole mess while attempting to get answers from them about her. She is having an extremely difficult time with the pack as she is unwilling to bend to their practices and rules. There are many tough decisions, things that could scar her for life, but she takes it in stride as she understands that sometimes you have to break the rules. She is still an extremely independent woman but has to lean on someone when things continue to go awry with her ex and the kidnappings that are now involving her. This is an extremely witty and cunning story that is full of badassery. I got absolutely sucked in and could not stop until the end and even then I needed more. I will be continuing this journey of Mackenzie’s. It’s absolutely captivating. Kudos to the author!

Oh what can I even say about this? Aliens, humans, werewolves, dragons, danger, romance…..and the list goes on and on! If you are reading this review because you were pulled in by the cover then I suggest you dive right in to the story. The cover is only the beginning. The story starts off with Jude making a crash landing on an alien planet. Right from the start the heat goes up. The fighting is intense and Jude proves to be bada**. Gerritt is the Alpha of the Vilka’s and happens to be in the same area as Jude when she crashes. Right away he is smitten. He has this undeniable pull to Jude. He can’t let her out of his sight but they are driving each other completely insane! They are constantly in danger but watching each other’s back. The banter between these two characters….and our side characters….had me laughing out loud at times. It is refreshing when you have such an intense, action packed story with the perfect amount of funny and hotness. It had an incredible beginning with an amazing end. The world building makes you feel like you are on Kladuu and the characters feel real. This is such an easy read to let you escape. I couldn’t put it down and am anxiously awaiting the next installment. Bravo!
