img_0459

synopsis

Alpha male seeking his perfect mate. A sassy BBW, seeking a casual hookup. What happens when his mating instinct kindles true romance?

Rachel doesn’t want anything serious. Sassy and curvy, she loves the dating app. Shifter, but is only down for a one night stand. Broken hearted and stuck in a dry spell, she’s looking for an alpha male who will be her ultimate fantasy–the best hook up she’s ever had, but nothing more.

Gareth wants to mate for life. As the alpha of his pack of bear shifters, he has very little time to fulfill his mate challenge. Find a mate, or lose his position as the alpha.

When he sees Rachel on the dating app, his mating instinct goes wild. Rachel’s sassy lion eyes, her curves for miles, and her loving heart makes her a shifter he can’t resist. But can he and Rachel mate for life? Or will her past keep her from her fated mate?

This is a BBW paranormal romance ebook, featuring a fierce lion and a protective bear. It’s full of super hot shapeshifters, plenty of heart, and lots of sexy sex. 😉 If those don’t sound up your alley, stay away!

kristis review

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

So it’s been a year since the actions in book 2. Jaz’s friend Rachel has been having a dry spell in the man department since she caught her last boyfriend cheating on her and is feeling lonely.
Gareth is a alpha bear looking to find his mate before his birthday, he also has been trying do deal with the murmuring of Power Shift in his pack.
Rachel decides to use the shifter mating app to find a hook up, while Gareth decides to use it to help find his mate.
When they are matched they  are attracted to each other right away.
Rachel tries to fight her growing feeling for Gareth, she doesn’t want to get hurt again, and Gareth knows from the moment that they meet that she is his mate.
It’s funny watching Rachel fight her feelings for the hunky bear and how Gareth tries to go slow so that he doesn’t scare off the lioness with the tower high walls.
Seeing that Power Shift is now growing and inserting itself into other species, makes me wonder who is really pulling the string of the movement. That they are not only concerned with the Lions staying within their species, but that they want bears to stay pure to bears and are willing to kill to make their point, is killing me!!
Hopefully we’ll find out more in the next book.

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

I love shifter stories and this new series is great.
We met Luke and Jasmine in book one, Luke is one of Max’s best friends and Jasmine is the sister of his other best friend Theo.
In this story we not only have interspecies dating, Luke is a wolf and Jaz is a lion, we also have a couple who have had feelings for each other but fighting it because of not wanting to hurting the best friend or brother’s feeling, and we have the Power Shift organization that wants no interspecies dating whether it’s human/shifter or shifter/shifter.
The love story between Luke and Jaz is the classic best friend’s little sister love story, but it is well written and with the shifter aspect added in its hot.
While giving Max’s app a shot Luke is paired with Jaz who he has wanted for a very long time. When Jaz finds out that they’ve been matched she’s crazy excited but nervous too because she has had feeling for him forever!!!
Their first date is soooooo romantic it’s crazy and made even more crazy when their attacked by Power Shift.
I wish there was more with the Power Shift aspect written in, I’m really wanting to know more about them, but that’s just me.
While waiting for Theo to come home from his honeymoon, they come to the conclusion that what they’ve been feeling and hiding is love and will be together no matter what.
This series is coming along great and I can’t wait to find out who will be the next coupled paired by the Shifter Dating App.

synopsis

For His Eyes Only
Masters and Mercenaries, Book 13
By Lexi Blake
Coming February 28, 2017

A night he can’t forget

Five years ago, Nick Markovic found himself consumed by his quest for vengeance. The one time he managed to find peace was in the arms of Hayley Dalton. Being with her was like bathing in sunlight, and he ached to feel that again, but he couldn’t. He gave his oath to Hayley’s cousin Desiree, his partner at McKay-Taggart and Knight, that he’d never let his darkness infect Hayley’s innocent world.

A spark she can’t put out

It was years before that Hayley offered everything she had to Nick. After that one amazing night, all she wanted was to be his forever. Unfortunately, Nick’s reaction was to walk away from her and never look back. The warm and caring man she’d discovered was gone, and after Des’s death, he’d only grown colder. But when Hayley finds herself in mortal danger, she’s forced to seek protection from the man who broke her heart.

A flame that threatens to consume them both

Haunted by the women he failed, Nick can’t allow himself to grow close to Hayley again. Running to stay ahead of the powerful forces that endanger their lives, they travel from the lush Garden in London to the glittering lights of Rio. As the threat against her becomes clearer, he realizes that to keep her safe he must confront the demons from his past, even if it costs him a future with the woman he loves.

#Shifter #Review Must Love Lions (Shifter Date) by Alma Black

Must Love Lions (A Shifter Date Paranormal Romance)

synopsis

Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she’s great at her job as a journalist, but it’s never given her the time to find the right man–specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app he’s created, she can’t believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don’t date.

Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild.

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can’t say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can’t resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It’s more than his pride on the line; it’s his mate.

kristis review

 

Wow, I picked up this book for two reasons.
1: my friend suggested it, Hello Twinsie Angie!!
2: it was a freebie
Well I have to say I would have paid for it I enjoyed it so much!! I always love finding new shifters stories and this was great.
It had just the right about of funny to go along with the love story!!
And a story about a dating app!! How funny and up to date is that, since they’re all the rage.
Max is a lion shifter going against the grain with his beliefs that humans and shifters can find love.
Alexis is a journalist and is writing a story on the human/shifter dating app that Max has created.
He is instantly attracted to her and she is to him as well but is trying to fight it.
While a faction of the Lions against human/shifter relations try to get Alexis away from Max, he also has to deal with a meddling family.
For a first time story it was well written and I will definitely be loving for more from this author.

A short-story erotic romance from Shayla Black:

I’m Kayla.

I’m in love with him. And I have to persuade him to stay…somehow.

#Release Day #Review Ink Exposed (Montgomery Ink Book 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

img_0420

synopsis

The Montgomery Ink series continues with the brother that deserves a second chance, and the woman who has always loved him.

Alex Montgomery lost his first love and then proceeded to leave himself in the bottle. Only he and his ex-wife truly know why he fell so hard and so fast down a path he never thought he’d take. Now he’s clean, out of rehab, and learning how to be a Montgomery once again—a task that isn’t quite as easy as some of his family assumes.

Tabby Collins is an honorary Montgomery and the organizational mastermind behind Montgomery Inc., the family’s construction company. She loves her planners, friends, and a certain dark-haired man who’s never given her a second glance.

Alex is slowly re-immersing himself back into the world, but the demons he faced before aren’t out of the picture, and he’ll have to learn to rely on others to make it out whole. When Alex discovers that Tabby’s life is in danger, he not only finds a way to help her but also learns the true woman behind the soft smiles he’s always seen. Their romance won’t be an easy one, but nothing this passionate and heart-pounding ever is.

kristis review

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

If you are a fan of the Montgomery Ink series, I know what you’re thinking, Yay Alex finally get his story!!
If you’ve never read the series once you’ve read Alex, you will love it so be prepared for your brooding men with tattoos lust to begin!!!
Alex is the youngest boy of the Denver Montgomery family, the last few years haven’t been the best for him; broken marriage, destroyed his little sister’s wedding, and went to rehab for his alcoholism.
Tabby, is the executive assistant for the family’s construction firm and runs it like a top, oh and is a honorary member of the Montgomery family.
I love that Ryan made the choice to set Alex’s story a year after the last book, so he’s had a while to get his demons until control and to rebuild his life, a year to be ready to love again.
Tabby has had a crush on Alex for a while and sees that he still doesn’t feel comfortable with his family after the events of the past, and she has a past that no one knows about.
I can’t believe how well these two go together, they’re like each other’s missing piece.
Tabby so understands him and can see what no one else can see with him. Alex learns that yes he screwed things up in the past, but he has to forgive himself like those he loves has, and live again.
Ryan has done a excellent job at showing how addiction can change people, how people deal with it when a family member has a disease such as this, and how a person can come back from the heartache it causes.
Make sure you have tissues handy for this one because Alex and Tabby will wreck you, but the introduction of Tabby’s hot as heck brothers will make it all better. It also doesn’t hurt that Alex has take up fighting, so we get to see his yummy tatted up and sweaty bod in the ring!!
Can’t wait for more Montgomery stories and fingers crossed on seeing more of Tabby’s yummy overprotective brothers.

#WOTR #Release Day #Review #BDSM Benevolent Master (Doms of Napa Valley Book 3) Dakota Trace

writers-on-the-river-attendingauthor-2017

img_0416

synopsis

Single mom, Alyce O’Connell is a desperate woman. With her thesis almost complete on the intricate relationships between dominants and submissives she thinks she’s found a way to better her and daughter’s life – until her adviser won’t sign off on it. Dr. Gylberte insists that Alyce needs some actual in ‘the field’ experience. While she can’t believe the woman is going to withhold her approval until Alyce has experienced at least a few weeks in the role of a dominant or submissive, Alyce is willing to do anything to get it – including begging the man at the door of New Beginnings to help her.

Kaleb Terzis loves his life. He not only gets to help kids by running one of the most popular youth art centers in Napa Valley, he also works part time as a Dominant at New Beginnings with several of his friends. He’s footloose and free – content to play the field of willing submissives, until a desperate woman comes into the club, all in the name of research. Even as he’s prepared to hand off Alyce to Master Ethan, he changes his mind when Alyce shivers at his touch and turns those needy eyes his way. Attracted to the cool beauty despite her resemblance to his ex wife, he takes her on – determined to prove that under her impersonal demeanor is a woman who needs to submit.

He just never expects her to turn the tables on him…

kristis review

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

Ok when I was asked to read this book I was thinking “BDSM, hells yeah!” At the same time I hadn’t read any of the other books from the series so I didn’t know if I would be missing something or not.
Luckily, I didn’t need to read the other books and I enjoyed this one so much they’ve been added to my TBR list.
So we have Alyce O’Connell trying to get her thesis on BDSM approved so she can get her degree to be a psychologist. She is doing everything she can to provide for her autistic daughter and herself after getting out of a very bad marriage.
When she is put into contact with Master Kaleb to find out about true submission things get interesting.
After seeing her, before her sister got them kicked out at The New Beginnings club, he can’t get her out of his mind.
Both of these characters have been burned by ex’s and you can tell in the way they act.
Trace has done a great job in putting you into Alyce’s mind and her feelings both past and present on herself, submission, and sex in general ring true.
Master Kaleb does a excellent job with teacher Alyce what she needs to know for her thesis and helping her find the submissive within. He also does a excellent job letting her know that yes she’s a mom and her child will always come first, she’s also a woman that a man can fall in love with.
A Douchebag ex hubby, a bitchie sister, and a bi-polar mother also make a appearance.
All in all, this was a story about no matter how much you’ve been hurt in the past love is still out there if you let it happen.

Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Dakota, an author of erotic romance (think 50 Shades of Gray – but better) and paranormal erotica. And what exactly does that mean? Well, since I’ve always marched to the beat of different drum: it means that I get to take my unique life experiences – like putting around in the garage with my dad, or driving a train when I was ten, to create worlds where the heroines aren’t necessarily June Clever, but are strong independent women who may stand on their own two feet, but long to submit to the right man. Whether it’s two friends who realize there is more than friendship between them or the sexy alien who captures his unwilling slave’s heart, sparks fly between them. My imagination has no bounds or at least none I’ve found yet!

Received a copy for a honest review

Ok, so this is Mrs. Teresa Gabelman’s contribution to the Taming the Vampire box set, one of 25 books by some fabulous authors, out just in time for Halloween.

This book is about Maverick, a vampire and Becky, a human. Once upon a time Maverick was human and they were in love, but Maverick was turned and pushed her away to keep her safe.
First let me say that Maverick being a Vamp doesn’t change the fact that he’s a dude and dudes think they know what’s best when it comes to the safety of the women they love.
Second, hello another group of sexy vamps from one of queens of sexy vampires.
Maverick, once human now vampire, is a part of the Enforcers. If Gabelman’s vampires were law enforcement the VC Warriors would be the Feds and the Enforcers the local law enforcement. They are after a certain group of vamps and Becky just happens to be caught in the middle.
The action starts right off the bat, I love the reactions that Becky and Maverick have to each other after the time they’ve been apart. The way they feel about each, like in real life, hasn’t changed due to time and circumstance.
The new vampires are funny as heck, they protect the good guys, and love hard. I for one have my fingers crossed for more of the Enforcers, whether they are on their own or intergraded in with the Protectors, hint hint!! . Oh, and Becky by the way kicks ass, literally!!! Love a strong woman who knows what and who she wants.
When men, be they human or vampire, realize that no matter what happens to you a woman who loves you will always love you, magic happens.

The Enforcer by Teresa Gabelman

 

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

Oh Teresa you and your vampires….I mean you know I love me some VC Warrior Jared in The Protectors series but these new guys…Can I get a hells YES to them!!  OMG!!  I am thinking ol’ Dusty may be my new baby daddy in this series too!!!

SO this is a new series by one of my favorite paranormal writers.  If you love her other series, you are going to need to jump into this series as well.  The Enforcers are tough, big and uber alpha plus super funny. Maverick has loved Becky forever but he disappeared due to being changed.  When he sees her with the bad guy he and his Enforcer friends have to figure out her connection to James.

Becky is still not over Maverick.  He left her and she has no clue why.  When she is forced to spend time with him to protect her from some bad people, she has to deal with her heart falling all over him again and the devastation she will feel when he leaves.

This story is a GREAT into the new vampire series.  I can’t wait for more!!

Melinda's Review

Teresa Gabelman – The Enforcer

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

I love Teresa Gabelman’s Protector’s and even her Lee County Wolves but there Enforcers are going to be some competition. Although Maverick was great I’m thinking Dusty is going to the top of my list.

This is about Maverick who was absolutely in love with Becky. Until one night his life changes and he disappears from Becky’s life. She is heartbroken for months. You see Maverick was changed in to a vampire and he decided his life was too dangerous for his Becky. He though the only way to protect her from him and his new life was to leave her. Until one night she is tossed into his world and planted right in front of him. Now he has no choice but to protect her and keep her safe.

Becky will have to endure his presents and deal with the heart break all over again when he leaves her again because she knows it will be coming.

What a great series I loved Becky’s sass, stubbornness, and fight. She is a strong female that can stand on her own feet and stand up to big bad vampires. The vampires are wonderful too and I cannot wait to get to know then better.

A murderer is on the loose, the kingdom is in disarray, and Kael is determined to make the person responsible for killing his father pay. But falling for the beautiful Cara, panther-shifter and main suspect in his father’s murder, wasn’t part of the plan. He’s not at all sure she did it, and he finds himself going against everything he’s ever known just to claim her.

The ceremonial Hunt is approaching, and mates must be chosen to run together. The hatred between the tiger and panther species is all they know. If Kael and Cara follow their hearts, it could mean treason and death.

kristis review

I received a copy for a honest review

This is my first Harper A. Brooks book and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I love shifters stories and the take the Brooks gave is her own little spin on the beginnings of feline shifters. Her storytelling pulled me in from the beginning with how it started right away and there was no lag time between the happenings in the foreword and the story itself.
Our story happens during a time and place that panther shifters are shunned and hated, tigers are the ruling felines with the other feline races in the middle.
Cara is a panther doing all that she can for her younger sister and aging grandmother. It’s hard though because being a panther they live on the outskirts of the great city where there is little animals for hunting and no one in the city wants to trade with a panther.
Kael is the tiger prince, the next Rei or king in their world. He’s known nothing really other than his training as the next Rei and the things he’s learned from his father.
The Hunt is where a male picks his mate and they run through the sacred forest hoping to receive blessings from blessed mother Sajara.
Cara and Kael meet when the current Rei, Kael’s father, is murdered in the town square while announcing the hunt will start soon. Kael thinks that Cara is the assassin and takes chase, Cara being a hated panther does the only thing she can do…..RUN.
Cara will doing anything for her little family including being falsely imprisoned. During the time leading up to the Hunt lots of things happen, but the most important thing I think is Kael learning that maybe his father didn’t know everything about his people and Cara learning that it’s ok to take care of her grandmother and sister, but she can not forget herself while doing so.
The Hunt was a sweet little shifter story with some intrigue mixed in. I would definitely read more stories set in this shifter world.

about the author

img_0381
Harper A. Brooks lives in a small town on the New Jersey shore. Even though classic authors have always filled her bookshelves, she finds her writing muse drawn to the dark, magical, and romantic. But when she isn’t creating entire worlds with sexy shifters or legendary love stories, you can find her either with a good cup of coffee in hand or at home snuggling with her furry, four-legged son, Sammy.

She writes historical and paranormal romance.
