Feel Me (The Novus Pack Series Book 2)

Feel Me- M Jayne/Melanie Jayne

TRIGGER WARNINGS

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

Sometimes, Goodbye is the Only Way

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ashes (The River Ash Pack, #1)

Ashes, The River Ash Pack Book 1 by Mary Martel

Goodreads HERE

TRIGGER WARNINGS

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

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

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

Uprising: Dark Horizons 1 (Eternally Mated Book 7)

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

Goodreads HERE

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

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

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

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

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

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

MINX

Minx by Maggie Adams

Goodreads HERE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Revenge (Revenge Series #1)

Revenge, Revenge Series book 1 by Christine Besze

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!

Toil & Trouble (Mystic Hallows Harem)

A ghoul who craves zombie flesh. A sensitive vampire who cries black blood. A lying werewolf my ancestors adore.

And oh yeah, the witch hunter who hates me. Four unlikely heroes sworn to protect the powerful Salem Howe lineage from evil and help prevent the next uprising.

But, what happens if I need to save myself from the four devilishly handsome men? It’s par for the course in my chaotic life. Trouble follows the Howe family like a curse.

“Reality was a cruel bitch but fate was much more cunning. Vengeance would be swift.”

The cunning and snarky Cassie is back with her Cosan and we now have a new member!!! Kayde…the witch hunter! OMG how the heck does this work out?! Well, with the addition of Kayde we get a bit more history of Cassie’s family AND we find out who the bad guy is! I love that this story is set in episodes and during Samhain because this means the story starts right back where the other ends. In this episode the bond between Cassie and her Cosan is getting stronger as she finally opens up more to each of her protectors. Definitely a slow burn but sooooo worth it! But let’s not forget the action of the story too. This story has it all and I am looking forward to the next.

“Isn’t this cozy?….So, Ryder says he can share. Damian appears to agree. The wolf looks ready to explode. And…. where’s the fun witch hunter? Doesn’t he get an opinion?”

This episodes is full of favorite lines of mine. A must read so you can find your own!!!

Sexy, sinful, sarcastic, slow burn…….Hell to the yeah!

“Lingering in the air was the anticipation of celebration mixed with an undercurrent of devilish intent. Sheer perfection.”

Samhain is upon us and the celebration must begin. However, Cassie has run into a few supernaturals and she feels like they are hiding something from her. In the midst of these new guys being in town she is being hunted by a dark presence. Now she has to get to the bottom of this and find out who and what exactly is behind the attacks. Cassie is super snarky with some devilish thoughts and a crew of men behind her that are just as snarky and fun as she is.

“Sometimes I was restless. My aunt Gwen often said I was an old soul filled with potent blood and a hunger for mischief. I couldn’t deny it was true.”

Throughout this installment the world building is incredible. From the way everything is described you can smell autumn in the air. And the characters! They are all very different but so very likable. I could almost pair each of them with someone I know in my life. This is a quick, fast paced read with an incredible start for this series! I’m hooked!

If you don’t believe in supernatural beings or witchy things, this might change your mind. I am loving Black Magic Voodoo and am looking forward to continuing the saga!

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

This series gets better and better with each book that comes out. I find myself falling harder and harder for each of Ariel guys.  We get to see her relationships grow with the guys and her father.

Ariel is finally in a good spot she found her true family. These guys will do anything for her, anything to make her happy and protect her which is something she has never had in her lifetime. She is building relationships with all her guys and even her dad. She has a job she loves at Fortune’s for the Unfortunate.

Ariel loves each of these guys and finds that she is just as overprotective of her guys as they are of her. She will do anything to keep them from hurting even if it means she hurts herself. There are some new characters introduced in this book some are going to be a good thing for Ariel and her family and others could be deadly for them.

Just like with Ariel I am falling more and more in love with each of these guys. Even though Ariel is closer to some of her guys than the others I am enjoying her learning more things about each one.  I have to say I love when I get to see a different side of one of them I never saw before.

I am so ready for the next book. There are so many new developments and I want to know were things are going to go. I also want to see these relationships grow and evolve.

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

Friends…..This book….Jesus….so much happens.  We finally see Ariel and the guys taking things “to the next level”.  We learn more about the council and just how effing awful they are….why I was shocked I have no clue.  We get at few more twists and turns thrown at us but most of all, we see the coven tightening up and getting ready for a war of sorts!!!  Dude this book I told you was insane!!!

Dude this book!!  First up, yes things progress for Ariel and some members of the coven but what I loved was her flat out admitting her fears about intimacy with some of the guys.  I loved seeing the guys reassure her she is it and they are good with how thing progress.  But I Floved hearing words being declared between Ariel and the guys!!  Seriously this was a step in the right direction for everyone!!

The council….man oh man…we get a new council member who will be a good person for our coven to confide in but we also see the council being shady AF which is pretty much what they do right???  The stuff they stir up during a dinner party….grrrrrr…….things are not going to be smooth for Ariel and the guys but Damn Uncle Q didn’t punch anyone??  Could he be settling down now that the has his girl?  LOL  RIGHT!!! I highly doubt it.

Rain is still Rain….crazy and scary but head over heals for his daughter.  But the new men in Ariel’s life, who also love Rain, will be an interesting mix to the story line!!  I told ya TWISITS people.

What I am so worried about is what is in those manila folders? What did the guys find out about the OTHER major plot twist?  What other plot twists can Mary throw at us??  FYI Plot Twist named Raven is a hottie buuuuuut yeah he can go away anytime now!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #RH #Trilogy #FinalBook – Reclaiming Kendall, White Trash Trilogy Book #3 by Brandy Slaven


Reclaiming Kendall (White Trash Trilogy, #3)


Goodreads

Amazon

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

I fell in love with Mav, Teagan, Grant and Lucas thanks to my friend Mary introducing me to this hella good world.  Kendall is one tough chick who will NOT be what the expectation is for her….white trash continuing the cycle in the trailer park.  We have seen her fight and scratch her way out and when she meets the Quad it all falls in place for her.  Her men, now husbands, have done everything to ensure their love will endure.

We have seen the 5 grow from high school to college and now we see them all taking the final plunge into marriage.  We know the struggles will not be over so quickly given their unusual “family” dynamic BUT they wont give up any part of the group or sacrifice their love for Kendall.

When the story starts we see the marriage and honeymoon….damn the breakfast scene…holy hot shower after is allllll I gotta say!!!  WOWZER!!  Brandy I will never look at pancakes and maple syrup the same way and neither with the other guys!!!

From the honeymoon we see them living their lives.  We see the daily routines and trying to make time for everyone.  I loved how each couple got private time but they also remained grounded in their family time and dynamic.

We see Kendall begin to struggle with not being enough when things come into play plus we see the family taking on a parental roll that none of them understand more than Kendall.  This book gives us more insight to the new budding “family” plus we also see the changes each person is willing to make for the love of their “brother husbands” and new wife.

I seriously am so sad to see them go but loved the surprises we got at the end with some spin offs and novellas coming our way!!!  Whoop Whoop!!

Brandy Slaven lives in Tennessee with her husband and two wild children. If you can’t find her creating worlds with her words, you will find her with her nose in a book at the beach or hiking at a state parks.

           Hi, I’m Zahra Delsol. . . the white Zahra Delsol and I want to tell you about my interview from hell.

And a potential vampire.

Oh, and the obscenely, inappropriate office moments.

I’m just a girl trying to make it in the world of internet astrology. . . Actually, I am just a girl trying to pay off her student debt and looking to live life to its fullest (which mostly entails reading in my free time and googling researching information).

So, I would love for you to join me in my Trust Tree of Truth, where I am unfailingly honest and you are abidingly nonjudgmental. Do I need to sell this more or did I have you at ‘dream sex’?

Virgo Rising is book one in The Afflicted Zodiac Series.

Goodreads


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

I am not sure how to rate this book. It was very different from anything I have ever read.  The whole concept of the story was very new and intriguing for sure but…..yeah…..there were times when I felt bored with the story because it was too descriptive and then other times I was snickering because it was super funny with the character banter…….

I was really torn on this rating and decided to split the difference between the 3 or 4 star with a 3.5 rating.

The story is interesting as Zahra is actually a BEEOTCH names Lina who has been reincarnated.  Lina must have messed up during her reincarnation because instead of the fierce horrible person she normally is, Zahra is a sweet, innocent woman totally confused by what the heck is happening to her.

Zahra is “hired” by the some “men” (AKA the Celestial Duality of the Milky Way and if they are not aligned then the apocalypse will happen) to read their astrology charts.  They don’t all believe her innocent act but need her to fix what she has done to the men in a past life to stop the above-mentioned apocalypse from happening.

The relationship between her and the guys is hot and cold as they all wont to either love her or strange her…LOL The bonds between the men are funny too.  Some seem to be willing to forgive and bed the new Lina AKA Zahra while others are holding those grudges a bit to tight.

Again, I will say if you give this book a try give, it a bit to settle into the story.  It took me a bit to settle in and enjoy the ride.

Bestselling author M.J. Marstens mixes romance, suspense, comedy, and sassy characters who can say whatever they are thinking because it is just a story. When she is not creating steamy scenes or laugh-out-loud fiascos, she is refereeing her three children that she homeschools. In her free time, she loves to eat, sleep, and pray that her children do not turn out like the characters she writes about in her books

#NewRelease #Review #RH – Then Comes Marriage: A Reverse Harem Romance (Matchmaker Book 4) by Jade C. Jamison

Then Comes Marriage: A Reverse Harem Romance (Matchmaker Book 4)

I’m so close to the finish line…but will my future be everything I hoped for?

We’re down to the last two men vying for my hand, and what had seemed to be every woman’s dream has become a wretched nightmare. These men who’d seemed perfect for me, compatible in every way, are deeply flawed, and now I’m questioning if I even want to spend a lifetime with them.

But now it’s too late. I’m locked in, and so I now have to hope for the lesser of two evils and pray that I can turn it into a match made in heaven…

***Dying to find out who Claire ends up with? Find out in the explosive finale!***

Goodreads

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

Holy wild ride for us and Claire!!! SO this book ends and we are not sure who is staying in the final 2 guys or who is out…..I am kinda stunned actually by the 2 who remain and the one who was voted out because I SURE would have dumped one over the other.

Claire has a LOT happening in this book.  She goes on mini dates, a trip away date and 2 final dates while all wondering “WHAT IS GOING ON???” and “WHO WILL AMERICA PICK?”  I mean even I was stunned at who America was picking….

We learn a lot about our final two suiters…one thing for sure…neither can keep their pants up for long when Claire is around *Snickers* Ya’ll this is national TV!!!!??? Your mother is watching!!!

When the book is ending, Claire gets some “NEWS” and well, yeah, her opinion about things is soon twisted and leaves her feeling not so happy with the show.

I loved how we get to see the rational for the people who were cut when they were cut.  It made me and Claire understand the why for most everything.  Most of all, I loved the final scene!!!  I loved who she ended up with even if he wasn’t my 1st or 2nd pick!!  He was truly the BEST pick for Claire.

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point? (
