#Review – Hunter (Standalone in A Vampire’s Thirst #8) by Bella Roccaforte

Hunter (A Vampire's Thirst #8)

 

A Vampire’s Thirst: Dark, Dangerous and Undeniable. A stand-alone HEA

Hunter Webb, an ancient Viking Vampire wants one thing: to be with his one true love…an impossibility seeing as he is refused entry to Valhalla for being a Vampire. Instead he’s dedicated his life to finding a “cure” for vampirism so that he may die in battle as a human and feast in the hall among the gods and find the other half of his heart.

While working in the lab he is struck down by a mysterious illness that shakes the very foundation of his entire existence. The desire to feed ALL of his urges drives him to the edge of insanity. After thousands of years of control, his craving for warm blood and hot sex take over all of his reason…until a tiny vial of blood changes everything. One taste and he remembers what it’s like to feel, hope and live again.

Now he must find the owner of the blood or they will both be in grave danger. Will Hunter find his bloodmate before they both lose themselves to the Thirst?

The hunt is on, the battle fierce…only the strong survive a Vampire’s Thirst.

 

Goodreads

 

Ok, here is ALL you need to know about this book. It’s A MUST READ! I have to tell you that sometimes books with insta-love push me the wrong way. Sometimes it feels that two people (or vampires, shifters, etc) see each other and boom….they are having their way with each other the entire book. NOT THIS ONE! Hunter and Rook are the love interests in this story. Hunter was a Viking from the old world who found his true love. He is now a vampire and has lived many, many years without his love. He is constantly researching a cure for vampirism. He wants to go down in battle with a win and be with his one true love again. We also meet Rook. She left her small town to go to New Orleans. She never really felt that she belonged back home. She can’t be scented by supernaturals and is found to be an asset on gaining information for the Directive. The Directive basically polices the supernatural community and things are going down. Rook is in trouble and everyone warns her to leave the area. While Hunter is diligently working on a cure he finds that he can’t satiate this hunger and the intense sex drive he has and starts feeling like he is going crazy. This is as much of a book report that I can give you, haha! The back story and the additional characters that are in this particular story give it a ton of depth with the characters that really make you want to root for the insta-love that these stories bring. By the time these two finally find each other there is so much intensity building that when they do meet, their worlds collide with a bang! And then their intricate web continues to be woven.  These two are one of my new favorite book couples. I can only imagine what kind of shenanigans they got into before they meet or even further past this book. Loving me some Hunter and Rook!!

Title: Sassy Little Thing
Series: Iron Fury MC #4
Author: Bella Jewel
Genre: Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2018
Blurb
People, in my opinion, don’t take happiness seriously
enough.
They go through life, constantly trying to please other
people.
I do, however, take my happiness seriously.
Very seriously.
But, when things in my life, go suddenly south, I am left
with more than one choice.
Do what’s right, or do what’s wrong?
That, on any normal day, would be an easy choice for me.
I’ll do whatever I need to keep my life flowing with
happiness.
But when it comes to love, everything changes.
And him.
I love him.
Which means I have to correct my wrong doings.
I need him to forgive me.
I need money.
It’s the only way.
When a job for a live-in maid comes up, with excellent pay,
I jump at the chance.
When I realize it’s for the member of a Motorcycle Club, I
still don’t back down.
Even if it means I have to live with and work for, one of
the hottest, broodiest and most difficult men I’ve ever met.
I’ll do whatever it takes.
Only, I don’t expect to actually like him.
The mysterious biker.
The one who I seem drawn to.
And now I have a real problem.
Do what’s right, or let my heart take me where it wishes?
Two men. Once choice.
Things are about to get very, very complicated.

#NewRelease – #Review – The Sphinx by Jessica Cage

The Sphinx

 

Some stories are told, others are not, the best ones are reimagined.

Stories are told of the sphinx—a monster with the head of a woman, the body of a lioness, the wings of an eagle, and a tail tipped with the head of a serpent. This beast was told to have been made to guard the entrance to the Greek city of Thebes. For each traveler to cross her path, a riddle was presented. If they could answer it correctly, access would be granted. What was her riddle?
“What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon, and three in the evening?” The price to pay for answering the riddle incorrectly, which of course they all did, was not a simple denial of entry to Thebes. Instead of turning them away, the sphinx, monster that was, strangled them with her tail and devoured them whole.
The story goes that when it finally came to pass that someone could answer her riddle and the consecutive ones to follow, she committed suicide. What else was a girl to do? Some say she threw herself down from the high rocks and fell to her death, while others say that she devoured herself, subjecting herself to the same punishment she dished out to all those who had failed before, a talented feat.
However, the question remains … what really happened to her?

 

Goodreads

 

This has it all! Greek Gods, Sirens, Vampires, Shifters….all things paranormal! LOVED this book! As you read in the description this is about the Sphinx and what really happened to her when she dies. As all stories are told over the years they change, just like the game of telephone that we all grew up with. Asa is our main character here. She was, or still is, the Sphinx. She was cursed to be the Sphinx when she denied the God of War, Ares. She was bound to be cursed forever but she found her loophole and went into hiding. She continues to hide and plot just waiting for the day that she faces Ares again. She is out for the ultimate revenge….but come to find out that she may not be the only one that is out for revenge (not telling you who!!!!) She has lived a lonely life preparing for the moment that she can seek her revenge but there are always speed bumps as she has been living in isolation for so long. I believe Asa meets her match with Carter! When the two of them meet the sparks fly! They are attracted to each other but they both have wicked trust issues. As the story unfolds and truths are revealed they are going to have to decide if revenge is worth it or if they can survive….together. This has the perfect mix of paranormal mixed into the retellings of Greek history. Action packed with a love story! Jessica Cage is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more of her stories. This is definitely an intriguing page turner. You won’t want to miss The Sphinx!

#WOTR18 #AttendingAuthor – Author Spotlight of Vivian Ward @AuthorVivian

Vivian Ward

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Vivian Ward and I’m a bookaholic, chocoholic, wine-loving wife, mom, friend, and romance writer. I’m a full-time writer but when I’m not writing, I’m usually cooking, cleaning, helping the kids with homework, or playing with our two dogs.

My grandma was a huge influence in my life, and I owe everything to her. She taught me to always shoot for the stars and to stay in school. Because of her, I am strong and independent, which is how I write my heroines. My favorite color is purple, and my hometown is St. Louis. You will always see these two things in every book that I write.

I love meeting new people and try to make friends everywhere I go. I will never give up writing because my stories are my life. I love conjuring up interesting characters and unique situations. I also like hearing from my readers, so if you’re reading this, DROP ME A LINE AND SAY HI!

When and Why did you start to write?

I actually went to medical school but before I could graduate, I found out that I was pregnant and was about six months along when I finished school. Family always come first, so I looked for alternative ways to use my medical knowledge and started writing medical articles for LIVESTRONG.com (under a pseudonym). When my contract ended, I was sad because I loved writing but, unfortunately, they could not renew it.

I began writing short stories. Okay, I’ll be honest. I wrote SEXY short stories FOR my husband. He FLOVED them! He encouraged me to keep writing (what guy wouldn’t?), so I did and I had a lot of fun with it!

I didn’t start publishing on Amazon until 2013 and when I did, I published short, erotic stories. Around 2015, I decided to try my hand at longer works because I wanted to write romance novels, but I was scared. My sexy shorts (that’s what I called my short stories) sold like hot cakes, but romance novels? It was intimidating. There is some SERIOUS competition out there!

I bought HUNDREDS of dollars of reference books. Some old, some new. I studied and read, for almost three months straight. I did TONS of research and felt like I was back in college. It still wasn’t enough, so I watched so many videos and downloaded plot sheets. I must’ve sat at the kitchen table for hours and hours every week as I practiced plotting before I finally published my first novel.

Writing longer works was definitely a challenge, but I’m so glad that I forced myself to step up to the next level. I believe that writing is a very rewarding career.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I read a wide range of authors, and recommendations vary based on what my friends/readers are looking for. My favorite contemporary romance book is Arsen: A Broken Love Story by Mia Asher. My favorite dark romance book (right now) is Sick Fux by Tillie Cole. Believe it or not, I like reading Amish romance stories, too, but those aren’t my “favorite” or “go to”. Those are nice when I’m in a book hangover after my dark romance characters are put through the ringer.

I also like reading dystopians, thrillers (Gone Girl is my FAVE!), autobiographies and books about cults (don’t judge…..they fascinate the hell out of me). I’m sure that I’m probably forgetting other genres that I read, but I mostly read romance.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

What I find surprising is that I can write until the minute I sit down to do my blurb. Words cease to exist in my vocabulary when it comes time to write a catchy description that captivates readers and pulls them in.

Other than that, I’ve found ways to tighten up my writing, which I’m always working on. It’s not an easy task. There are some authors who think of (and remember!) everything in their book. I can’t tell you how many times my characters start off with honey-colored eyes and end up with jaded gems.

What are you working on now?

Right now, I’m working The Risky Series. It’s a trilogy and the second book is due at the end of March and the last installment is due at the end of April.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

A little of both. I like to somewhat plot to get an idea of where the story is headed but I find that if I plot the entire book, I get very bored with the story, I feel like my characters are limited, and I lose interest because I feel “confined” like I have to write it “just like this.”

I prefer to let my characters take me on THEIR journey, just as long as we hit those key points. It’s okay if they don’t like each other for a minute. It’s okay if they changed some of the storyline or setting. I’d rather be truly creative and let the story flow as I write it, and tighten it up during editing.

#CoverReveal #PreOrder #Contemporary More Than Crave You (More Than Words Book 4) By Shayla Black

Release Date: April 19, 2018

Designer: Rachel Connolly

Photographer: Sara Eirew

Add to GoodReads

 

I’m Evan Cook—billionaire tech entrepreneur and widower. Professionally, I’ve got it all. But since my wife died, my personal life has fallen apart. Remarrying seems like the obvious answer, so I place an ad. I’m not asking for much. The ideal woman only needs to be smart, organized, pretty, and helpful—both in and out of bed—without expecting romance. I never thought to look right in front of me…but it turns out that Nia Wright, my sexy, sassy assistant, just might be the perfect candidate.

After an unexpectedly hot night together, I’m ready to stop interviewing strangers and simply marry her. On paper, she ticks every box on my list. Best of all, she’s far too sensible to fall for me. I didn’t see the flaw in my logic until it was far too late. I never thought I’d lose my heart for the first time. And I definitely never imagined that she could consume me until I more than crave her. But she’s harboring a secret that could tear us apart—just as I’m finally putting myself together.

#Review – Victor (A Vampire’s Thirst #1) by A.K. Michaels

Victor (A Vampire's Thirst, #1)

 

A Vampire’s Thirst: Dark, Dangerous, and Undeniable!

Victor Strong, ancient Vampire and hard-as-nails businessman, has enjoyed centuries in the human world by following one simple rule: Keep a steely control over your dark side. Then it comes, like a thief in the night, overtaking him mind, body, and soul… a strange, unexplainable ‘Thirst’ that not even he could deny.

With the craving for blood, and other darker, more enticing desires, rapidly growing out of control, Victor suddenly fears not only for his sanity, but his very life.

Holding on by a thin, unraveling thread, Victor is pulled from the brink of madness by a sweet, tantalizing aroma. So hypnotized by the scent, he is forced to find its owner, compelled to find the most elusive of all things; a mere myth among his kind. The Vampire’s Bloods-Mate.

Can he reach her in time? Can she save him from himself? Or will Victor be lost to his dark side forever?

The hunt is on. The battle fierce. Only the strongest survive A Vampire’s Thirst!

Book 1 in A K Michaels’ brand new series A Vampire’s Thirst full of hot as hades alpha males in this smoking paranormal romance story.

 

Goodreads

 

Yes please! Vampires and shifters (all kinds of shifters) with suspense and full of hotness… need I say more? In this world people know of the supernatural society. It is not flaunted by any means but it is not secret. Victor is a strong and wealthy business man. He is in the middle of making deals and what not when this insatiable thirst for fresh blood and sex consumes him. He has no idea why this is so strong. There is a scent that he picks up on and that is how he finds Kimber. He smells her but cannot find her. She is the scent that is pulling him into this madness. One thing that he does not know is that Kimber is a dragon shifter who is being hunted. As fate will have it, Victor saves Kimber but she is reluctant to stay. They are both incredibly drawn to each other and they have this insta-love that blood mates have.

 

I am crazy about my paranormal and love vampires and shifters. The story was well written and tons of chemistry between the two. They NEED each other. The one thing that I didn’t particularly like was that they “met” very near the beginning of the story. The back story of the two finding each other felt a tad rushed but the intense love they feel for each other completely make up for it. The majority of the story was more about them getting to know each other (wags eyebrows*) and when our evil villain finally comes forward I was surprised by this particular villain and very surprised about who really helps Victor and Kimber in the end. Again, the ending felt a little rushed as well. But overall, Victor’s and Kimber’s story of love and the will to fight for it was super heartwarming. This is a first of AK Michaels’ books for me but won’t be the last. I am looking forward to others in this series.

#NewRelease #doublereview #NetgalleyReviewer #ARC- Chaser, Dive Bar Book 3 by Kylie Scott

Chaser (Dive Bar #3)

Love isn’t always NEAT…

Bartender and all round bad boy, Eric Collins, has come to a crossroads. It’s time to take life seriously and maybe even attempt to settle down. If only the person he was hoping to settle down with didn’t turn out to be pregnant.

Starting over in a small town, Jean is determined to turn her wild lifestyle around and be the kind of mother she always wished she’d had. Since local bar owner and all round hottie, Eric, is now determined to steer clear of her pregnant self, it should be easy. When she goes into labor during a snowstorm and her car slides on some ice, however, it’s Eric who comes to the rescue.

There seems to be a bond between them now, but is it enough? And can Eric give up his manwhore ways to be the man Jean needs?

Goodreads

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

Oh Eric your man whoring ways are coming to an end my friend!!

Eric..we all remember Eric right???  He is part owner of the Dive Bar and certainly has no issue with the ladies.  He doesn’t mind all the attention he gets from his friends, or does he??  Maybe man whoring is not all he is good for??  Maybe, just maybe he wants *Gasp* More???  Eric IS a good guy but he just cant seem to keep it in his pants so to say.  What eligible, good looking guy would???  But then SHE arrives into town and everything changes.

Jean leaves Florida because she need a new life plan.  Jean goes to the Bar to meet her new friend Nell who is also going to help her start her life over.  When Eric sees Jean he is all “Hey How You Dion’?” until the baby bump pops out from under the table…yikes.

Since the two are going to be neighbors they quickly find a friendship of sorts but when the baby comes he see a new side to both of them and their new found feelings.

Eric…what can I say? I love a naughty guy who gets into trouble but I also loved seeing the character growth from the books until his book.

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

Yes, it is finally Eric’s story. Eric is Joe’s brother and if you read Dirty or Twist you are sure to remember him. I am so ready to see him redeemed not sure if that is possible but if it can be done Kylie will do it. I wasn’t sure about Eric when I read Dirty and Twist I mean yes he is easy going, an all about me kind of guy and a manwhore. However, I stilled wanted to see if he would be the same kind of guy when he was finally face to face with his one. I could not wait for him to meet his match and settle down. Then again maybe he would always be this way but man I hoped I was right on this.

Eric is getting it from all angles. His care free attitude toward woman is causing his friends who are beginning to settle down to come down on him hard. He decides he is going to give the stick with one girl thing a try. He happens to choose a new face that walked into the bar only thing is he didn’t realize he was getting a little more than he bargained for when he set his eyes on Jean.

Jean came to Coeur D’Alene so she could make a new start for herself and her baby. She meets Eric at the bar where he attempts to hit on her. This only causes a bit of friction because Jean just happens to be Nell’s online friend. I loved Jean she was so sweet. The instant chemistry between Jena and Eric was amazing. Even with that instant chemistry Eric decides to back off and go the friend route when he finds out she is pregnant.

I fell harder for Eric when he was reading the baby books to be able to help Jean when she needed him. I absolutely loved seeing this side of Eric. Seeing Eric and Jean baby bonding was so heartwarming. Being able to see the Stage Dive guys at the party was great, oh Mal you never let me down for a good laugh.

#NewRelease #Review #MontgomeryInk Fallen Ink (Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs) Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend.

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible.

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way

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

My favorite family of Inked and bearded men are back, this time though it’s a different branch of the Montgomery family tree, Carrie Ann Ryan gives us Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs!!!!

Ryan us blessed the world with the Montgomery cousins and I am one happy camper!!!
On this branch of the family tree we have Adrienne, Shephard, Thea, and Roxie. Shep has already had his story told in Ink Inspired which was the start of the whole obsession that is Montgomery Ink. Now it’s Adrienne’s turn and the start of Colorado Springs.
Maya and Austin, from the Denver Montgomery’s, are spreading their tattooed wings and opening a second tattoo studio called Montgomery Ink Too or MIT. Adrienne and Shep are part owners of it with their family as well as the managers.
Adrienne is a tattoo artist and along with her bestie Mace, her brother, and friends they have MIT’s grand opening but it’s interrupted by some stranger saying that they aren’t welcome and that they wouldn’t be there long.
Mace Knight is Adrienne’s best friend, a tattoo artist, and a weekend dad to his daughter. He is also a hot bearded silver fox!!!!!
Out of the blue his ex leaves the country and leaving him a full time father to the daughter he loves, so having to learn to become a full time father as well as starting a new job is hard on him.
Not only does Mace have a hard time with his new life, Adrienne is having a hard time also dealing with the new business and the threats to it. Adrienne and Mace lean more on each other than they already do and start something new along the way.
I adore when best friends fall in love!! They already know everything about each other but also learn so much more.
Adrienne and Mace are so good together I can’t believe that they haven’t moved beyond friends before now!!!
The steam coming off these two can be seen for miles, but there is also tenderness. The tenderness between Mace and his daughter, between Adrienne and his daughter, and the way that he realizes that they make a perfect family.
Between Adrienne and Mace falling in love and the threat to the business we learn about the other Montgomery girls and get to see how Shep and his family are doing now that he has moved back home to Colorado Springs.
I can not wait to read more about this branch of the family.

I love to read when I have time, and worship Kristen Ashley, Aurora Rose Reynolds, Kaylee Ryan, and love CA Harms! I’m a suck for cheesy disaster flicks, and I’m a die hard Walking Dead fan. I’ve also watched The Office from beginning to end over ten times. I’m a weightlifter, it’s my stress releaser and only run if someone is chasing me. I love music and listen to anything but new country, it’s just not my jam. I do love 70’s, 80’s and 90’s music the best.

When and Why did you start to write?

8 1/2 years ago I worked in a labor and delivery unit, and had been a massive reader. like the librarians at my library new me by name. A thought came to me and I thought “hey that could be a book” A friend of mine said “lets write” so her and I both started our books. I finished mine and it was garbage, but I love it. Then I got the idea of Starting Over my first published book. It took three years and multiple rewrites before I finally got it published. I write because I love creating these stories that I hope speak to others, and I’ve got to do something with all of the voices in my head.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?

I read Kristen Ashley, Aurora Rose Reynolds, CA Harms, Kaylee Ryan, Meghan Quinn, Suzanne Wright, Joanna Wylde, Shayla Black, Jewel E. Ann, HJ Bellus, Natasha Madison.

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

hmmmm….just how helpful other authors have been.

What are you working on now?

Book 1 in a new series, tentatively called Tales of a Tomboy.

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I plot a general idea, but I’m a pantser
