#Review #Audio #Shifters #Paranormal – Found in Hope: An Adult Paranormal Romance (Wolf Creek Shifters Book 2) by H. R. Savage

Found in Hope (Wolf Creek Shifters, #2)

He’s second in command and known for his commitment issues…

Jamie never questioned his playboy antics—until he’s suddenly surrounded by doting couples and mated wolves. Convinced a night out is exactly what he needs, what he ends up with is a one-night stand…at least, that’s what he thought.

She has nothing but trouble written all over her…

Skylar is a witty she-wolf with a sassy mouth and a past full of secrets—a past she’s desperate to escape. That’s why she came to Wolf Creek seeking refuge from the trouble she left behind.

Jamie’s relentless quest to discover more about the mysterious wolf with silver eyes leads to a sexy game of cat and mouse. But lines start to blur when demons of her past hunt her down and become a threat to everyone he loves.

Now Jamie needs to decide if keeping her safe is worth risking the safety of his entire pack.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review, but I did purchase the audio book to listen too as well.  I enjoyed the narrator for the book.  She did a great job differentiating between the multiple POVs and characters.

I really enjoyed getting to know the main characters of this series in book 1.  When I saw Jamie was getting an HEA in this book, I was sold!!!  He is the player, but he seems to maybe be a little envious of all the couples and love he is seeing????? The playboy might be ok with settling down….maybe….meh prolly not.  LOL

Skylar and her sister Em are running.  We don’t know much but they are in need of a pack that will help packless wolves.  When she finds Wolf Creek, she decided to go out for a drink but quickly stumbled into a tall dark drink of waters bed.  She leaves after her delicious one-night stand to discover he is the Beta in her new possible pack!!  AKWARD!!!

Skylar and Jamie have this crazy intense chemistry, but Jamie is also falling for her little siter.  He is the sweetest guy in the world to Em and treats her like a little sister.  Skylar and Jamie both are so afraid to admit their feelings and so when her past catches up to her, their fear is what actually causes them to have issues.  Communication is a big issue between Jamie and Skylar thought the book.  They both have pasts and they both are so scared.  He is afraid to open up and be destroyed by a woman.  She thinks admitting your feelings makes you weak.

I gotta say….I am so flipping excited about book 3.  If you read book one then you know how much Killian LOVES Aidan the Warlock.  Welp friends it seems he is going to be getting an HEA and the love match is going to be a wild ride!!!!

Author H.R. Savage (Heather) started reading romance at an age that made her father cringe as she tried to hide the cover behind her hands. She technically finished writing her first book in Junior High, where it mysteriously disappeared in a reformatting incident. Due to the encouragement of her English teachers at her small town school in La Verne, California, she never lost her love for the art. Now a woman who swears by the power of coffee, Chinese food, and wine (not necessarily in that order), she decided it was time to create stories from the characters in her head.

When Heather isn’t writing, outlining, or pinning pictures of hot ‘character inspirations’ on Pinterest™, she is spending time with her three beautiful children and handsome husband

Review by Twinsie Melinda

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.

This series has me cracking up.  I enjoy seeing more and more of all these witches, familiars and shifters. These are great quick reads and pick me ups. The things Bruce gets up to I’m telling you he would keep any witch on their feet.

Wicked’s past is once again landing on her front porch.  This time it brings a witch named Angel and her familiar Rook.  As if Bruce couldn’t make enough mischief himself let’s just add Rook the blue crow wearing 3D glasses to the mix.

Things are truly looking up for Wicked she has more people in her life.  She knows she can trust them and they have her back.  We get to meet Robert and Angel and I could not be more pleased to see these two come into Wicked’s life again.

I have really enjoyed this world of Magic and Mayhem that Teresa Gabelman has tossed me into.  Cannot wait to read more of Wicked’s life.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Teresa Gabelman, writes paranormal romance and contemporary romance with a side of humor in each story. Her heroines are strong and independent keeping the sexy alpha heroes on their toes.

Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!

Lost in Vengeance (Wolf Creek Shifters Book 1)

Her fate is sealed…

Without a pack there’s only one thing about Catrina’s future that’s certain. Death. But all she cares about is avenging her parents’ murders, and being part of a pack will only slow her down.

After being wrongfully imprisoned in a wildlife sanctuary, Catrina catches the attention of the Wolf Creek Alpha—Killian Stone. He wants her in his pack, but Cat refuses to submit, not when she’s come this close to finally getting the revenge she craves.

But he’s determined to save her…

Killian will do anything to uncover her secrets. There’s no way he’ll stand by and watch her self-destruct as a lone wolf because of a past she can’t change.

As their attraction grows Cat starts to doubt every decision she’s ever made. Killian shows her what it’s like to be part of a family and proves to her she doesn’t have to be alone.

Torn between a future with a loving pack, and a past she’s been shackled to for so long, Cat needs to decide if she’s willing to move on…or lose the last hope she’s ever had of finding peace.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review but I did purchase the audio book to listen too.

I am a sucker for a shifter series.  I also loved this authors dystopia book and so I politely begged for this book as well.  LOL  I will say I am very excited for a new to me series to continue to read.

The narration for this story was enjoyable.  Sometimes, you can get a narrator who you just don’t think fits the story, but Skylar Summers hit each voice perfectly.  I really enjoyed her Scottish accents.

Before I start the story review I will say there are times I felt the story did drag a bit BUT since this is the first book in the series, I chalked it up to world and character building.  The excessive details about random things would pull me out of the story at times but over all I still liked the story and am ready for book 2.

Killian finds a feral shifter who is being held in a human zoo/sanctuary when he goes to get her.  Right from the start he knows she is different but does not understand how or why.  We meet Catrina who has been through the biggest loss of her life and is scared.  She was hidden away while her parents were being killed and then ran…for 6 years in wolf form.

We see Killian, Jamie and the rest of the pack welcome Catrina and try to help her acclimate to the human world again.  We also see the chemistry between Killian and Cat.  Its very instant they have a drive to touch and see each other all the time.

We soon deal with pack jealousy over Killian’s obvious affections for Cat.  We see Cat making friends and forming family/pack bonds even if she denies it.  But Cat is looking for revenge against those who killed her parents.

We soon meet the “bad” people but don’t understand what is happening except we know they want Cat.  I will say as the story starts to unfold with who is looking for Cat, her past is opened up and we learn about her parents and life pre-murder, you cant help but feel sorry for her and all her loss.  However, seeing Killian stand and support her even if his wolf gets a smidge jealous made me giggle….oh Killian.

The end of the story was super interesting.  I liked the twist of what made Cat “special”.  I also look forward to Aiden and learning more about him. But first up is Jamie in book 2 and I feel like Mr. Playboy isn’t loving being single after all he says.

#wotr #attendingauthor #seriesstarter Ready to Were (Shift Happens Series 1) by Robyn Peterman

I never planned on going back to Hung Island, Georgia. Ever.

I was a top notch Were agent for the secret paranormal Council and happily living in Chicago where I had everything I needed – a gym membership, season tickets to the Cubs and Dwayne – my gay, Vampyre best friend. Going back now would mean facing the reason I’d left and I’d rather chew my own paw off than deal with Hank.

Hank the Tank Wilson was the six foot three, obnoxious, egotistical, perfect-assed, best-sex-of-my-life, Werewolf who cheated on me and broke my heart. At the time, I did what any rational woman would do. I left in the middle of the night with a suitcase, big plans and enough money for a one-way bus ticket to freedom. I vowed to never return.

But here I am, trying to wrap my head around what has happened to some missing Weres without wrapping my body around Hank. I hope I don’t have to eat my words and my paw.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Essie left her old life in the middle of the night and moved to Chicago never looking back. A year later her new job had her forced to go back to find out what was happening to all these female werewolves that kept going missing. So she found herself taking her gay best friend vampyre back to her hometown to kill these bad guys and try not to run into the alpha who also happens to be her ex. Will she be able to get the job done without any trouble or will she find herself in her exs bed before she leaves town again. This book was amazing so funny especially when you put a guy vampyre and an older granny wolf together its bound to be hilarious and it was definitely a great read.

Review by Twinsie Dee

Robyn writes because the people inside her head won’t leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include shoes (the expensive kind), Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, and bejeweled reading glasses.

A former professional actress, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count. Writing gives her a chance to have a job where working in her P.J.’s is acceptable.

#wotr #attendingauthor The Shifters Masque by Monica Corwin

Malina has been called many things … chief amongst them: defective. As the only non-shifting member of her pack she’s hardened herself to rejection, but one man is going to change Malina’s world … a pack-master in search of his mate.

I was given this book and here is my honest opinion

This was a great short shifter story. All Malina wants to do is get invited to the annual shifter ball but the only issue is that she still hasn’t been able to shift everyone else in her family has and years after her 21st birthday she still hasn’t, but all of a sudden her invitation came and she couldn’t be more excited. Will she met someone who will understand her or will she stand in the corner and watch everyone else have fun. Somethings can change your whole life in just one night.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Becca and Theo…how bad would it suck to know the one person you trust in is your mate but your dad is not ok with it.  He forbids the mating and so they go their separate ways.  To me that is unimaginable to do to shifters who are destined to be together.  Also, side note, people suck and cause drama which is why the couple is torn apart.  Dude, dad wake up and let your daughter follow her heart!!  *shakes fist*

Fast forward 5 years and Becca is missing.  Theo knows he is the one to find his mate.  Even though people stopped them from being together in their youth he is determined to find and save her.

The story is fast paced and has lots of heat.  We learn about some things and the twists kept you wondering and guessing what will happen next.

#WOTR20 – #Review – Stephen: The Omega’s Curse

Stephen: The Omega's Curse

Stephen:

I don’t know how much more I can take. In the span of two weeks I have been told I am a rare omega, yanked from my pack by an old crone who says I need this journey to discover the powers I hold within Then the real bomb is dropped. I am cursed. When another pack alpha decides to snatch my true mate out from under me, my wolf and I take things into our own hands and call in reinforcements. I promise if that alpha harms a hair on her head, I’ll have his on a platter!

Harper:

Things have gone to hell in a hand basket quick after Hallister becomes the new alpha of the River Pack. I must go against everything I am and everything I believe in to save my pack. I was resigned to do what is needed until my true mate shows up. Now my head and heart are at odds. The alpha of a border pack snatches me to use as a bargaining chip against my mate and the original omega. I will not become a pawn in this war. Now will I allow another person I love to sacrifice themselves to save me.

Bookbub

First and foremost, I have loved all the shifters in the Black Mountain Pack. Each time I read one I think that it is my absolute favorite. I think that I love them all differently as each one is so different but their stories all overlap. I really enjoy how each one has their own journey and path with each one intertwining into the next. Stephen’s journey is no different but I think it is deeper than some of the others. Stephen is pulled from his pack to go on a journey with Adele. This is a journey of self discovery as he is coming into his Omega powers. On top of this he finds his true mate. The only thing is, they have been connecting in the dream world and things get real shifty when they finally meet in person. Harper is a strong, independent woman and the daughter of the true Alpha who is deceased. The new alpha is power hungry and has a claim on Harper because of her status. Stephen and Harper cannot announce they are mates at this time because of the turmoil in her pack and the new power hungry alpha, Halister. Her pack has also not seen a true mate in many years and thinks it’s all myths and legends now. Things really go haywire when Harper is kidnapped by a rival pack who wants to use her as leverage for her mate’s omega powers. 

Stephen and Harper’s story will suck you in from the start. It is fast paced with no dull moments. From the craziness of the power hungry alpha to the sexual angst between Stephen and Harper to the insanity of Harper’s captors….it just keeps going and going and going….This story does not disappoint and is an absolute must read!

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What a GREAT addition to the continued ARC of this story!!!  OMG  Zeke and Dakota were awesome!!

Zeke is a baby brother in the mix of 7 brothers, so I did not feel we knew a lot about him other then he was a goofball.  So, seeing him take the reigns to protect his ever-growing family made him stand out.  His brothers are all mated and now daddies, so he jumps to try and find THE BOOK they need to keep the pack safe.

Dakota is one tough a$$ chick!!  Her character was amazing.  She is one sister-in-law or daughter-in-law the Hallows will be leaning on when the final war happens.  She has seen all the bad things the vampires are capable of and she has risen from the trauma to be a vampire hunter.

When she stalks into a bar and sees Zeke, they are both stunned and attracted instantly.  When they have a fun night, they wake up, and Zeke has some explaining to do.  We all know what they have buuuut Dakota is not a big believer is fate let alone a fated mate!!

The story goes on and we see Zeke being Dakota’s “side kick” to track down the Vampires with the book they need.  Soon they discover the vampires also have another little hidden gem for world domination so they, of course, decide to ruin that plan as well.

The story is fast paced.  We learn about a society of humans who work together to stop vampires and other bad creatures.  We learn about Dakotas past and hurt which prevents her from moving forward.  We also see Zeke becoming the selfless hero all the Hallows become to protect their mate.

The story was a great addition to the series.  I look forward to each installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.  Baby brother Josh will soooo fall for his mate and we will see what happens with the overall arc of the story.

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

When I met Stephen I was so in love with is strong persona.  I loved meeting him in Wyatt’s book and so looked forward to him getting his HEA plus learning about the Omega power he was given.

Stephen and Harper’s love story is full of twists and turns with rival alphas and wars brewing.  They sure don’t have an easy time of its for sure.  The two also meet under unusual circumstances from Stephen’s Omega abilities.  I have to say I loved the way the two meet and already start to form their true mate bond.

Stephen has been lucky to live with a happy pack and Harper had until….her alpha is killed and another alpha is forcing his will upon her to be his mate.  Harper is much loved by her pack mates so she is doing everything she can to help save her pack while NOT losing herself in the process.

Stephen is so confused.  His heart says to rush in and save his mate but with his Omega abilities he must learn to walk that fine line of safety and protection for all even if his mate is not safe.

Seeing the two work together and build a relationship of trust which soon turns to love and respect was amazing.  I gotta say I am kinda looking Marcus over and wondering if he will be getting a book because he suuuuure is up my ally!!!

The story has you prepared to go one way and then BOOM another plot twist was thrown in the story.  I was like WHOA!!  Good one Miranda!!

Basically, what I am trying to say without giving away any part of this awesome plot is, you need to read some Stephen.  All you Wyatt lovers like me will be excited to see him and Natalie return.  I love seeing those two and seeing their love story further evolving!!
