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

GAH!!!  This book.  I had no clue its paranormal and so when the elements hit I was like WHAT!!  How did I miss it?  #SlowBrain

Our girl Ariel has had a bad life.  A drunk, stripper for a mom who only cares for Ariel if she can get something from another or pour her another drink.  Honestly Ariel is more of an annoyance then anything.  When her mother moves her and Ariel to a new town to be a live in “Companion” she is forced to adjust to a small town where everyone knows your business.  The towns people are not too thrilled with her mom sooo the kids in High School are not too friendly with Ariel.

On her first day, she runs smack in to the town hottie with an attitude named Tyson.  The two are thrust into each other’s path all day long.  She leaves and is pretty much hating life.  One day two everything changes and Mr. Rude becomes Mr. Friendly.  The two form a strange friendship.  Their friendship is now joined by a pair of twins who happen to live with Tyson and his brooding uncle Quint.  Oh yeah and they happen to be Ariel’s neighbors.

As the story unfolds there is more to Ariel then just a pretty girl next door and her new friends are keeping some big, crazy secrets from her.  The guys attraction to Ariel is off the carts and so is hers to them but that isn’t normal, right?  I mean you can’t be attracted to them ALL can you?  Then there is the brooding and cranky uncle who is not that much older than her who keeps checking her out and her him…so as you can tell…LOTS OF CHEMISTRY!!!

This book was sooooo good.  I didn’t stop once I started.  The beginning of the story keeps you invested because you feel for Ariel but then as the story unfold, DUDE YOU CAN’T STOP!!!!!!!!

#Spotlight #ReleaseDay – Something So Perfect by Natasha Madison


something so perfect release day.jpg





Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL’s bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.


When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a ‘you make me crazy’ kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.

She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.

He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.

But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Avery Ross has known heartbreak. She has known betrayal and loss, but nothing like the pain that loving Dominic Baine has brought into her life. Reeling from the aftermath of his devastating revelation, instead of allowing despair to break her, she builds herself into something stronger—the fearless woman and artist Nick’s passion has taught her to be. Yet her heart is in pieces, and despite everything she has, the one thing she needs is the man whose possessive desires and consuming love holds the power to either save them both or shatter her forever…

What begins as a powerful attraction soon explodes into a white-hot passion neither can deny.

Yet as scorching as they need for each other is, Avery doesn’t expect Nick’s interest in her to last. Nor does she dare to dream that the desire she feels for this scarred, emotionally remote man could deepen into something real. For Avery has secrets of her own—and a past that could destroy her…and shatter everything she and Nick share.

With dark secrets and a dangerous enemy haunting her past, Avery must find a way to trust Nick with the truth before it destroys everything they share. But Nick is harboring secrets of his own as well.

#WOTR #Review – Sanctuary by: Teresa Gabelman

Drowning in debt, the owner of Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary, Gemma Stone, is as exhausted as she is determined. Not only does she have to win over frightened, injured wolves daily, but she’s tired of those threatening to close her sanctuary down. It’s not until Eric Jackson walked into her life that she sees a light at the end of the lonely tunnel she’s been traveling. To the surprise of both, they have more in common than either could have ever imagined.


Amazon US

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

Don’t let this short story fool you it packs a punch. If you are looking for a quick read with a sexy alpha shifter and a sassy lady grab this one.

Gemma runs a wolf sanctuary were wolves come when they have no were else to go. Gemma is a fiery strong willed woman that will let nothing or no one stand in her way of doing what she loves.

Eric is the alpha wolf of his clan and is on a mission to find a wolf that crossed his pack. However, Eric found a little more than he was bargaining for when he found his way to Gemma’s place.

I fell fast and hard for Eric and Gemma. The scene with Luna was heart breaking. I loved the most was Gemma’s determination, fire and fight she may have been scared to death but she never showed it on the outside. With a short story it always leaves you wanting more. I would love to learn more about Eric’s wonderful pack, a little more of Gemma’s past, maybe a little more about Larry too and if they ever find who they were looking for. This is me hoping there is more to this story….maybe a new series?? Please??

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

O Teresa….you get me…you totally get what I like to read. #ShifterGirl #ParanormalGroupie

If you are a fan of Teresa’s,  you will obviously need to buy this one because it’s a new possible series….Teresa????  Thoughts???  Begging???  Ok Pleading!!  If you haven’t read her, uhm why?  But then this will get you a quick look at her writing and awesomeness.   Yes, that is a real word so leave me be.

Ok Gemma is a wear your heart on the sleeve kinda girl.  She is going to protect her wolf sanctuary even if the townies and sheriff want her to pack it up and leave.  She is following with her passion and protecting her grandfather’s legacy.

Eric is the alpha shifter of a near by pack of wolves.  He is looking for a rogue shifter but also looking to see if the legend of a safe place for shifters is true.

When he meets her is stunned that this feisty and sassy human is his mate but also stunned that she cares for these wolves without thinking of her own safety.  When Eric joins in the help her during a trying time the sparks fly and the couple end up opening up to what they know and who they are.

I loved the quick book and can’t want for more.  I mean Eric’s brothers need a book plus we need to know about the bad guy Eric is tracking!!

#DoubleReview #ReleaseDay #BDSM – Under His Protection (Brie’s Submission Book 14) by Red Phoenix @redphoenix69

Under His Protection (Brie's Submission Book 14)

Misunderstood Hero
Faelan is a passionate Master with a hidden past that holds him hostage.

Having his heart recently broken, he accepts the challenge of keeping Brie safe and vows to protect her by

But when a curvy little sub catches his eye at the Haven, he is forced to choose loyalty over love.

His allegiance lies with his friends at The Center, and the time has come to prepare their rescue of Rytsar Durov—one of their own.

“I have selected a rather self-indulgent request tonight. You see, there is a sub in the audience I’ve had my eye on for a while. Tonight, I will be playing out her fantasy…”

He pulled out the note and read it, making a few changes in the wording. “This sub would like to be tied up so she is completely vulnerable to my favorite instruments.” He saw Kylie perk up. Staring directly at her, he continued, “She also stated ‘I want to know his Dominant touch and not be able to do anything about it.”

Kylie stared at him with a stunned expression as the other subs in the crowd looked at her with envy.

“Would you step forward and join me?” Faelan asked, holding out his hand to her.

Kylie’s eyes widened, but she didn’t make a move.

Faelan cocked his head and smiled, waiting patiently.

Kylie approached him, looking like a deer caught in the headlights. He kept his gaze on her, making sure they didn’t lose eye contact. When she was close enough, he took her hand to pull her to him.

The moment their skin touched she audibly gasped.

Leaning in, he asked in a low whisper, “Do you really want to scene with me tonight or should I let you go?”

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

Lawd this book!  I mean I flipping had tears!!  GAH!!!

This book we get the back story on everything that Mary *GROWL* and Faelan went through during their relationship from the moment of Brie and Sir’s collaring to their own collaring.  We see Faelan trying to break through to Mary but in the end Mary ruined any chance of happiness.  Gosh did I feel bad for Todd.  I never thought I would feel for him.  I mean he was such an issue for Brie and Sir initially and so hurtful but as we see him grow and mature into the Dom we know he can be…yeah my heart aches for him.

Once we relive the old relationship we jump right back in to Rytsar protecting Brie from Lilly.  Faelan becomes the person who will carry out the plans because as we know, Rytsar is gone.  We see so much of Brie and Faelan this book and their bond is full of trust and mutual respect.  Faelan knows that Brie is where and with whom she was destined for but his heart is closed off to love after losing her and Mary.

When Marquise Grey takes Faelan in he helps his realize that his past is holding him back.  But when a curvy sub at the Haven catches his eye, everything starts to click for him and he realizes that he must face his past….omg that last chapter………..shivers!

As the book is ending, our favorite cast of Masters and Mistresses are sent on a rescue mission to find and save our long-lost friend before tine runs out.

As per any of the books in the series, we get to reconnect with our old favorites and continue to see them all thrive and grow as a family.  I love the heart that Red brings to the story.  She has the ability to make us think about what makes us really happy and to go grab life by the gusto.

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

WOW the emotions I went through in this book. To see how much Faelan has matured and grown over the years is heartwarming.  This is Faelan’s story and why he is the man he became.

The beginning of this starts dark and had me nervous what was going to happen. This takes us back to when Faelan was recovering from surgery. We get to see Faelan and Mary’s relationship. Like some relationships we get the good, bad and ugly. Faelan has grown no longer thinking of himself he shows loyalty dedication and love toward his family and friends. The way the Training Center dominant come together no questions asked when one of their own needs help is amazing.

Between the needle play, flogging scene, and knife play the Doms know who to satisfy the subbies. One of my favorite scenes was Mary and Faelans date and the gift he gave her being a fan of this movie myself I would have loved to receive this gift. The composure Faelan has when it comes to Mary’s wrath is incredible. He is so calm and patient even when she is being a cruel raving lunatic. My heart brock so many times for Faelan from his past that haunts him to his relationships.

It was great seeing everyone in this one but holy moly what a way to end a book. The last chapter was heart stopping and shocking. However my Rytsar is next and I cannot wait for his book but I have a feeling it will be full of angst and heartache.

A few of my favorites:

“Don’t you dare put me on a pedestal. I promise it will come crashing down on you.” “Mary, I see your flaws and…I get them. You don’t need to hide anything from me. I accept and love you for who you are.”

The smallest one in the group piped up. “So does that mean you’re her prince?” Mary took over. “He’s actually a big fluffy wolf, but was turned into a man to protect me.” The little girl walked up to Faelan and started petting him. “Nice puppy.”….“Mommy, he’s not a prince, he’s a dog.” “Wolf, actually,” Mary chimed in.

“Yes. When I love someone, I love them completely.” She traced her finger over his lips. “You aren’t like all the other boys, are you?” “No. My loyalty is fierce.” He grinned when he added, “Like a wolf.”

“Your love suffocates me.” “Only because it’s real and you can’t handle it.”

She had everything going for her, the looks, the smarts, the talent, and the drive. But she lacked one critical element. She didn’t believe her own worth, and no amount of love from him would ever change that.

Heck, the two of them had been extremely compatible sexually as Dom/sub; he just hadn’t realized it took more than that to keep her as a sub. It had been a hard, but valuable lesson.

“Damn. It takes just one turtle to ruin an experience of a lifetime.”

Red Phoenix has received numerous awards for her original BDSM romances. When she’s not writing, you can find her online interacting with fans. “I heart my fans!” ~Red


#Review – Transient Echoes (The Variant Saga #2) by J.N. Chaney

Transient Echoes (The Variant Saga, #2)


It has been three years since the day of the Second Jolt. Thanks to the efforts of a select few, the world is finally moving on. As the Variant air begins to thin, humanity finds itself on the cusp of a new age of exploration…but at what cost?

After closing the rift—the source of all Variant—the hybrid child known as Terry has been transported to a distant world, far away from the only home he’s ever known. Completely isolated, and haunted by voices from his past, he wanders through the ruins of an ancient civilization long forgotten.

Back on Earth, a young woman named Mei works tirelessly to uncover the secrets of the rift. Against orders, she searches for the truth, making an unprecedented gamble. Will her obsession bring the answers she so desperately seeks…or will it cause even more destruction?




Just wow! I need more! This story picks up a few years after The Amber Project. We find out that Terry has been transported to another planet. Mei is working at the ruins but also has her own agenda on trying to find out what happened to Terry. The point of views go back and forth between the unknown planet and Earth. The world building is incredible. Earth is still nothing like we know of it today and the way the author describes the new Earth and the unknown planet that Terry is on is hard to resist. We get to experience Terry’s trials as he decides if he is going to continue to survive or not. And on the other hand we see Mei and John go through their own trials deciding if they need to move forward or not, on the low, to try and find out what happened to Terry. Both sides meet great new characters and many new journeys start. I have to warn you that this story is not like The Amber Project. Our characters have grown and are in completely different areas of their lives. I love how Transient Echoes compliments the Amber Project. It’s different and exciting! Kudos to JN Chaney for another great story!

#Review – The Truth About Mud (A ‘Mangleblood Rose’ Story) by Christina L. Rozelle

The Truth About Mud (A 'Mangleblood Rose' Story)


When an evil crow snatches a beloved medallion, young trolls Thistle and Fane have one more reason to venture outside the Clearing. Driven by a thirst for adventure, and anger at their King for sheltering them for far too long, they decide to search for a way across Mangleblood River. What they find will change their lives for all eternity.

They soon discover that the ties of friendship are breakable, lies are as real as the mud they stand in, and what they thought would last forever, is nothing more than an illusion.




This is a super cute fast read! This is a great book for people of all ages. Great imagination, world building, and fun characters. Basically two of the Mud trolls go on an adventure to recover Thistle’s medallion that was stolen by a crow. They break some of the most basic rules of their village to do this. They come across another set of trolls that are the Treasures. The mud trolls are just that, muddy and troll like. The treasures are the beautiful people. This story talks delves into the differences in people and how we are treated when different. It turns out that there is a reason for everything and Thistle, along with Fane, are given a great opportunity to help make things right in the world. The ending is perfect and leaves it open in the best way for a sequel. Such a cute read! I recommend this for everyone!

#CoverReveal – Tempered Steal Box Set Books 4-6 by Maggie Adams

Love, Marriage & Mayhem – Book 4

With only a small clue to the whereabouts of the arsonist that torched his family’s business, Lawrence “Lucky” Coalson heads to Las Vegas. While posing as a bouncer, Lucky finds himself ensnared by the lovely bartender, Claudia. But, like Lucky, she’s not what she appears to be and what happens in Vegas follows Lucky back home with unimaginable consequences.
Brandon Coalson is as hot as his older brothers, but he’s the sensitive one that patches broken hearts and sends them on their way. Until Anna Meeks walks into the office and into his life. Her shy demeanor melts Brandon’s heart, but she’s got secrets that could get them killed. When a family friend is grievously injured, the men vow to put an end to the sabotage once and for all, but nothing goes according to plan, and the men must fight Mother Nature, a murderer, and the local law enforcement to get the answers they seek. http://goo.gl/lGPKcd

Forged in Fire  – Book 5

“Lady, if I were you, I’d get the hell away from here ‘cause when I make it up this hill, I’m gonna be looking for you.” Lucky Coalson’s luck has run out. His ex-wife turned out to be a con artist; his business is in a shambles; and he’s been tossed into a muddy river by a smart assed feminist with a chip on her shoulder. Things couldn’t get much worse…or so he thought.

When Lucky’s accused of murdering his ex-wife, the Coalson family enlists the help of a private investigator to gather the clues necessary to prove his innocence. Little did they know that Renee Morgan is the same woman that sent Lucky scrambling up a sodden river bank at the height of a storm.

The two square off immediately, but Renee’s admiration of the Coalson family, despite her dislike of Lucky, is the deciding factor in her acceptance of the job. And although Lucky bristles every time she speaks, he grudgingly respects her intelligence and savvy skills as a private investigator.

As the hunt for the killer escalates, the two find they are not the only ones looking for the mysterious assassin. And the other people are more than willing to take out anyone that gets in their way, including those that Lucky and Renee hold dear to their hearts.

In a moment of passion that rocks them to the core, they realize their love may be forged in fire, but both have been badly burned by past lovers, and too stubborn to admit the truth. Can they find a way around their fears, or will Lucky’s ex-wife continue to plague him from the grave?

Cold as Ice – Book 6

He wants her to be his lover…she wants to be his forever.


Nick Coalson is abrasive, arrogant, and an absolute dynamo in the bedroom. Problem is, he knows it.

Rebecca Morgan is sweet, shy, and immensely attracted to Nick, but he’s trouble in tight jeans and she knows it.

When Nick Coalson saves Rebecca Morgan from an assassin’s bullet, he sets his sights on the shy partner of a detective agency. But he mistakes her kindness for weakness, and learns the hard way that although she may seem submissive, she’s a voluptuous bundle of intelligence and determination.

Rebecca tries to hide her feelings for Nick because he’s the kind of man that makes a smart girl do stupid things. After a sensual encounter, Nick grows distant, stating he wants a lover, not a wife. Rebecca realizes she’s going to need to keep her wits about her if she wants Nick forever because it’s too easy to lose herself to his dominant personality.

When a stranger offers to help her win Nick, she accepts although she wonders what’s in it for him.  But Nick thinks it’s too late for his love when he witnesses a tender moment between Rebecca and another man.  His head tells him to step aside, but his heart aches for her tender touch.

And as the killer closes in on the Coalson family, Nick wonders if it will be too late to save not only their love, but their very lives?

#Review – RUGOSA: A survival story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

RUGOSA: A survival story from Omaha to London


Follow Omaha on his survival journey to save the one girl he can’t survive without.

America doesn’t exist – at least not as most remember it.  The decision to trade insurmountable debt for sovereignty has led to an oppressive rule by the World Union Government (WUG).  Cities are being destroyed and stripped of resources.  Citizens are being captured and forced into labor camps. Until now, Omaha, age 17, has been able to avoid the WUG’s reach by homesteading with his mom and sister in the mountains of West Virginia.  But when a WUG General gets between him and his childhood sweetheart, London, Omaha must face the reality of this new world once and for all.

When London moved away two years ago, it was the saddest day in Omaha’s life.  He’s loved her for as long as he can remember and now faces nearly impossible circumstances.  Just a young man himself, he is doing everything he can to provide for his mom and sister in an increasingly unstable world.   Now, he must leave them and make the dangerous 400 mile journey across hostile lands to save the one person he can’t survive without.

Omaha grew up in Boy Scouts and spent his childhood learning timeless survival skills from his father and American Indian grandfather.  Now, with both mentors gone, he must call upon those skills if he has any hope of surviving the gauntlet ahead.  Armed with only a backpack of survival supplies, a sling shot, and his grandfather’s machete, this journey will test every aspect of Omaha:  his physical and mental strength, his faith in humanity, his own will to survive, and the one thing he thought would never falter – his love for London.




Very intriguing read. I am a fan of the dystopian genre. I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this story coming from a survivalist. I was pleasantly surprised! The beginning moved a little slow for me but was needed to get the world building right. Basically Omaha has been taking care of his mother and younger sister after the collapse. They are very low key and try and stay off of the radar from the WUG. Things turn for the worst and Omaha needs to go to the city to save London. This is where it got intense for me. Going with Omaha on this journey to save his friend truly puts him to the limit. He comes across many different people and situations that most people would never experience in their life. Once the trip starts for Omaha he is truly tested. It’s fast paced and lots of action at this time…and it doesn’t stop until the very end. I found this to be a very intriguing coming of age type story. I am looking forward to a sequel. Crossing my fingers!
