#Review #Shifter Blood Moon (True Mates 2) by Alicia Montgomery

In this exciting continuation to the True Mates Series, Human Liaison Cady Gray and Second-in-Command Nick Vrost are drawn together after a night of passion.

Despite growing up in the world of the New York Lycan clan, Cady Gray still feels like an outsider looking in. She’s built walls around her, to protect herself and the clan, harboring a deep secret from her past that threatens her future. The clan’s sexy Beta shifter has always intrigued her, but he’s kept his distance, that is, until one innocent dance.

Nick Vrost has wanted Cady for years, but kept his own desires at bay for the sake of the clan and his family. As second-in-command of the New York clan and heir to the Vrost fortune, it was his duty to marry a suitable high-ranking Lycan female and produce a child to carry on the line. After ignoring Cady for years, one touch ignites something he can no longer control and he may have to choose between family obligation and his long-simmering desire for the quiet beauty.

When a near-catastrophic event forces them to confront their attraction, they find that one night simply isn’t enough. However, the New York clan is facing its biggest challenge yet and incidents attacking Lycans in the city are increasing. Cady’s life is put in danger, but evidence begins to link her to the attacks. But, who is behind all these threats and will the Lycans survive?

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

Omg!! So book 2 picks up where book one ends, Alynna and Alex’s wedding.
Cady Gray is the Alpha’s Human Liaison, sort of like his executive assistant. They’ve known each other since they were kids because her father held that position for his father.
Nick Vrost is the beta of New York and head of security. These two have danced around each other for years. Nick has kept his distance because the alpha thinks of her as a sister and Cady because she didn’t think that Nick was interested.
One thing I found out in this book; True Mates are not only a rare thing but apparently a very magical thing that all magic beings feel.
Anyone can be a True Mate to a lycan, it doesn’t have to be two lycan.
So many things happen in this book. Witches are introduced further, we find out who was behind the attempts on Alynna life, we met Nick’s grandfather who gives him a ultimatum to find a wife and have children or he is going to be out of the will.
Oh, and Cady and Nick start dream walking!!
I think the struggle that Nick has to go through, of whether he follows his heart or listens to his grandfather is a tough one. I am so glad that I would never have to go through that.
Cady mother returns and it isn’t a happy return as she is a witch and witches and lycan do not get along. She also has given a ultimatum, that Cady will leave the employ of them or it will be forced. Her mom, is not a good woman, in fact why don’t we just call her a power hungry b***h. She works with a evil blood mage who is out to get the True Mates, because he hates lycan and because of the magic that makes a True Mated pair.
I love Cady and Nick when they are together, they’re so sweet. The chemistry between them is off the charts too!! There is a scene in the hotel during the blood moon wowza, that was a hot one!!!
I will say In the end Cady is a better woman that me because I would have made Nick grovel for at least a week.
Wanna know why he need to grovel??? Well I’m not telling, ya gotta read the book.
The next book is Grant, the New York alpha. Will he find is True Mate? Will he put a end to the evil Mage after the True Mated pairs? I can’t wait to find out!!

Twinsie Angie Top 5 Reads from July to December 2016 #WOTR #Apocalypse #MC #RomanticSuspense #LoveTriangle #

Wow was it tough to pick books this year.   Remember my top 5 from January til June??  Top 5 recap HERE

What a last half of the year reading for me!!  But before we get to the books………our author event was a huge success and we are all ready planning for our next event July 8, 2017.  Tickets are available HERE

 

Black Swan Affair – KL Kreig – WOTR Attending Author

So to start off my list I have to say this first book kicked my butt n the very best of ways……..

Black Swan Affair

I’ve loved him as long as I can remember.

The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop.

Killian Shepard.

Shep.

We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn’t matter that he was five years older than me. It didn’t matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into woman. It didn’t even matter when he left me behind to go to college and start his adult life.

He’d be back.
He was always meant to be mine.

He came back, all right. But instead of smelling of promises, he stunk of betrayal. And he destroyed me—us—the day he married my sister instead of me.

So I did the only thing a girl like me in my position could do.

I got my revenge.
I married his brother, Kael.
Now we’re one big happy f*cking family.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
*Big breath in and out. Wipes my teary eyes and looks at my lappy trying to figure out how in the heck I am going to write a review for this book of amazingness without just blabbing and telling you the whole sorted story.*
Maverick…she has loved and I mean whole heart loved Killian her entire life. She has grown up knowing he will be her forever. Promises made and kisses stolen but yet he comes home to destroy her by marrying her sister.
Kael is Killian’s younger brother who has loved Mav his entire life. He has been by her side for everything. He has helped her when she fell and celebrated with her for every victory. He has also loved her for as long as he can remember. When he married her he really and truly married the woman of his dreams. Too bad she didn’t return that love.
Killian was doing the right thing by Mav. He was waiting for her to grow up but he was plotting to have a forever with her but then everything changed in the blink of an eye.
The story killed me. The very first chapter you can see a whole lotta emotion…… We can feel Mav and Killian’s chemistry but at the same time I am rooting for Kael. We can see how much he loves and had loved Mav. He was there to heal her heart after Killian betrayed her. He was slowly becoming her everything and my heart was so happy for our couple….and then…BOOM…the closet flies open. Everything changed in the blink of an eye. The book made me a mess. Who do I want Mav with? Kael or Killian? Her present or her past? Her best friend or her forever love??? Is she destined to be a Swan or a Small Fry??? I loved and hated each man at different times in the book for different reasons but then when we find out why they did things………..omg my heart would just bust wide open for them.
I am a huge fan on KL’s writings and she is an auto buy for me because her writing is flawless and has so much emotional depth in it. If you haven’t read her stuff, you are missing out and need to one click the rest of her library. If you already are a fan this book will make your heart skip a few beats like every other book you have read.

Afterglow- Maria Monroe

The tag line says it all…sexy 5 star apocalypse reading

Afterglow

Who knew the apocalypse could be so sexy?

Nina can shoot a gun, start a fire, and kick some serious ass. So when a killer virus and solar storm decimate the country, she’s as prepared as possible to survive. She just needs a motorcycle to navigate the cluttered roads and meet up with her family.

Creed, former Marine, is tattooed and tough. He’s scarred inside and out. Loss is no stranger to him, and he avoids getting close to anyone at all costs.

When Nina tries to steal his motorcycle they have a vicious fight, but necessity and attraction force them into an uneasy alliance. They travel together through the dangerous landscape, where trouble lurks around every corner and they need each other to survive.

But the biggest danger just might be falling in love.

Equally as exciting as it is sexy, Afterglow contains graphic sex and some violence, so please read at your own risk. 18+ recommended.

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

OMG I am in love with this book and I totally would love to read more from this cast of characters. I mean Logan needs some love too right????

SO this book starts out with Nina looking to make it to her grandmother’s house to ride out this killer virus. She meets our hottie Creed when she is trying to steal from him..ooopsie Nina. Creed is stunned stupid to find out that the punk that is trying to steal his motorcycle is a kick a$$ female. The two run in to some not nice guys and Creed decides he needs to leave so he will see Nina safely to her grandma’s house and then take off for parts unknown. I loved Nina’s sass and the fact she isn’t a helpless female character. She has spunk and fire and she WAS going to see her family again. I loved that Creed also loved her tenacity and welcomed her fire during their travels.

Along the way, the couple banter and it fuels the chemistry that is just burning underneath the story. OMG I was like “SOMEONE MAKE A MOVE ALREADY!!” It was super hawt. When the two get to “getting to know each other a bit better” we can see them both forming an attachment but both don’t want to get attached because attachment means heartache.

Along the way, Nina and Creed meet some good people but mainly run in to the evil that is taking full advantage of this ruined society. They two end up helping another person who also has lost it all due to the virus and that character tugged at my heart just like they did Creed and Nina.

The end of the book had me a mess. I was reading as fast as I could because I needed to know if they would make it safely to Nina’s grandma’s house PLUS what will become of Creed and Nina.

Man of Honor – Sarah O’Rourke – WOTR Attending Author

All the Feels 5 star reading

Man of Honor (Passion in Paradise, #4)

Sheriff Zeke Monroe loves one woman…Honor McKinnon. He is willing to stake his entire future on protecting her…no matter what the cost.

Honor McKinnon knows she is broken. Her body and soul had been shattered by a violent attack years ago, and no one…not her sisters or anyone else in the tiny town of Paradise, especially the Sheriff…can change that. Rather than dealing with her wounds, she chooses to protect herself from any further damage, even if that means that she avoids the one chance at love. But Zeke is determined to break down Honor’s walls…and to find the persons responsible for hurting her and make them suffer.

He’s already killed for her once…and is willing to do it again if it means she’ll know safety and happiness.

What happens when Zeke refuses to allow Honor to ignore her past? Will Zeke’s love be passionate enough to break down her barriers? And can Zeke save Honor when her life is in danger once again?

Join Sarah O’Rourke in this epic culmination of the Men of the McKinnon Sisters stories…and find out how the Passion in Paradise series is always scorching hot! Standalone, romantica suspense.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
*blow out a breath* WOW This book…..its not just a story…it’s an epic journey for our characters. We all know what happened to Honor and we all can see how the sheriff feels for her but to finally see the story and see their journey…….Without a doubt this is my favorite book in the series. Zeke and Honor battle against so many different issue to be together. Honor has gone through kidnapping, rape, torture, attempted murder and even stalking. This would probably kill most people but with her sheriff by her side pushing her and not letting her succumb to the darkness that is after her.
Folks this is a LONG A$$ Book but none of it is fluff or filler. It is total story but you gotta be ready and prepared for everything that they will face together. I absolutely loved Zeke and loved how he was so confident for his love for Honor that he claimed her 6 years ago. She was in no frame of mind to deal with this unconditional love. Throughout the book we can see Honor realizing her feelings for Zeke and also being completely terrified by them.
Some of my favorite scenes are with Honor and her cray family. They are so solid but don’t know how to help their baby sister thought her dark times. Other favorites are hearing our innocent Honor talking openly with her therapist. SO funny!! But what I really loved was the 4th of July chapter. So much happens and so many realizations are made…my heart was thumping happily.
I am an epilogue whore so the epilogue made a tear come to my eye. I love the set up for the next book and who will be falling into love. This couple is going to be alot of fun to read about that is for sure…..

Burning Resolution – TM Cromer – WOTR Attending Author

5 epic Lemon Donut Laughing your butt off stars

Burning Resolution (Stonebrooke Book 1)

Armed with a New Year’s resolution and a surly attitude toward physical fitness, Erica Sutton hires a personal trainer to whip her pudgy self into shape. What she hadn’t bargained for was Zack Sharp – the owner of Workout World – assigning himself to be her workout nazi.

An obsessed ex-lover of Zack’s notices the attention he is paying Erica and sets out to remove the competition by any means possible.

Now, Erica and Zack are holed up, debating the merits of donuts, sex, and love while their crazy stalker sets out to light their world, quite literally, on fire. It’s a race against time to find their assailant before the relationship they’ve started to build is burnt to the ground.

I received this book for an honest review.
*Snort* Yes I am still laughing at this book. I mean if you like funny and insane then this my friends is a book for you. I mean the first chapter had me LAUGHING so hard and out loud. It’s an over the top yet so much fun read. I think that if you enjoyed Tara Sivec’s writing then you will need to read these as well!
Erica, the main character is soo me….packing on a few pounds and hating the way she looks she decided to go to the gym. Holy Mother of God who is the work out sadist…errr…coach?? Why yes hottie from high school Zach that’s who! The banter had me cracking up at parts and laughing so hard. When the two are flirting and thinking about the good old high school days there is a bit of drama which causes Erica and Zach to spend more and more time together which makes them become more and more attracted to each other. The chemistry was hot and their relationship was a wild ride. The suspense storyline was good but you can kiiiiiiinda figure it out but the twist we get was something I wasn’t expecting!!
Yes there were times I was gonna vagina punch Erica for letting her insecurities push Zach away and same to him with a solid nut punch because he would compare Erica to women from his past but generally I loved the two. I laughed so hard and was thrilled when the book 2’s story line started to take shape…man Mason and Shondra are gonna be so much fun to read because he opened his mouth and inserts his foot A LOT around her!! LOL
 

Pretty Ugly by Mary Martel – WOTR Attending Author

Holy MC Mother Of Goodness 5 star reads

Pretty Ugly (Mercy Mc, #1)

For Carmine life is messy and at times it can get downright ugly.
Bounced from one foster home to the next she’s never really had a real home or a real family. Bitter, spiteful and angry, at the young age of thirteen she finally lands in a place that sticks. And it is in no way a good place… except for him.
One look is all it takes for her to find a home and it’s not in a place but a person.
Lucien Oliver found himself orphaned and in the system after both his parents were murdered in front of him by a rival outlaw motorcycle club. Knowing he’d grow into the man his father groomed him to be, and that being not a very good one, he keeps everyone at a distance and only speaks when necessary. That is, until she shows up.
One look is all it takes for Carmine to steal a piece of Lucien’s heart. A heart he has no desire to give away.
For two years, they live under the same roof and become the best of friends and the only family they have to speak of. Then, one night just days after Carmine turned fifteen, the unthinkable happens and they find themselves ripped away from one another in the most tragic of ways.
It won’t be until years later when they meet again. After Lucien is no longer Lucien but rather the enforcer to the Mercy Motorcycle Club and a man known as King. And after Carmine gets out of jail, doing time for a crime she didn’t commit. Now adults and practically strangers they learn that life for them is always going to be messy and if it can get any uglier it will.
Lucien pushes Carmine too far and she finds herself in the arms of another. But will she stay there, or will she find her way home?
This is the start to a series and a spinoff of The Dollhouse Series. Due to adult content, it is not recommended for readers under the age of 18. Contains m/f/m scenes. The following books will contain m/m and m/m/f scenes.

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Mary!! What are you doing to me! OMG this book….I sat down to get a few chapters in before I got around to doing some Christmas stuff annnnnd 60% in I decided I needed to take a shower!!! King and Carmine…..I am speechless!! I wanna kick you butt at the ending but speechless. Hawt and bothered because DAYUM was that a hot scene but utterly confused by who I love more!!!
I was super excited for this spin off. Do you need to read the Dollhouse series? No but will you get a better appreciation of the craziness that you will be reading? ABSOLUTEY!!
King and Carmine have this “connection” in the Dollhouse series. We know that they watched out for each other in foster care and we know that she is in love with him and he her but the secrets that we learn about in this book….oy-freaking-vey.
Carmine and King have been through A LOT. He has loved her from afar and he blames himself for letting her down during a big moment in her life. She feels like she was betrayed by him and through this “issue” they are separated. King vows to spend the rest of his life to find her. When he does, shocked doesn’t even begin to tell you how he feels regarding her current situation. He will take care of his woman and he will do it right the eff now! And FYI she is not to thrilled to see him again ya’ll.
Carmine is so confused by King and what he does to give her some justice for her past. She is also confused by what she is feeling for him and his two brothers, Stephan and Hash. The couple need to stop yelling and hiding and start talking. Everyone can SEE the chemistry and the sparks but they both are ignorant to how the other feels.
Carmine goes through a huge journey and finds an ally in her quest to capture King’s heart all the while also hoping that this love will heal the ally as well….dreamy sigh at my hopes for the next book……
The book stops COLD and leaves ya hanging but it also leaves me with hope because we can SEE the plan starting to unfold!! Plus for you non-Dollouse readers it gives you time to read that series to prep you for book 2 of King and Carmine!!

#Review #Shifter Fated Mates (True Mates #1) by Alicia Montgomery

A secret Lycan world, hidden in plain sight. An outsider suddenly drawn in…She can’t resist him, but he knows he can never have her…

Private investigator Alynna Chase is drawn in to the world of werewolf shifter clans when she encounters charming and sexy Lycan, Alex Westbrooke.

For centuries, werewolf shifters have moved among human society undetected, hiding in plain sight. The New York clan, hiding behind the powerful Fenrir Corporation, has ruled the East Coast for over two centuries, holding great power and position in both human and Lycan hierarchy.

Alynna suddenly finds herself in the center of this secretive society world when her true heritage is revealed – a full-blooded Lycan, born of the fabled True Mate pairing between her human mother and powerful Alpha father. Drawn deeper into their world, she feels a magnetic pull towards Alex.

As Alynna takes her place in Lycan high society, Alex knows he could never have her. He’s a newcomer to New York and a member of the current Alpha’s security team, making her beyond his reach. But the attraction between them is too powerful, and he risks everything to have her.

However, a threat to the clan and Alynna’s life draws them closer together, and Alex will do anything to protect her, even risk getting too close and defying Lycan hierarchy.

With so many things at stake, will their affair end in disaster or have these two lonely souls found what they’ve been looking for?

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

Ok, I love shifters and anytime I’m introduced to a new series I’m really happy. This new story doesn’t disappoint either!!
Alynna Chase is a 22 year old PI living in New York, when she out following a client one night her life changes forever.
Suddenly she is thrown into the life of shifters, little did she know she is one of them, and she is a important one at that.
Alynna finds out that what she thought about her not having a father was wrong, she has a brother who is the Alpha and she is the child of a True Mated pair.
In this world lycan can’t always have children, but if it is a True Mated Pair they will pregnant almost immediately. A True Mated Pair is rare, lycans go ahead and marry others, because of it. A child of this pair is truly rare.
Because she has just found out what she is and because she’s practically lycan royalty her. Alpha brother assigns a security detail to keep her safe until she is introduced to lycan society, one of those bodyguards is Alex Westbrooke.
He is also the reason she now because when she first met him is when she had her very first shift.
Ok so these two together, soooooo HOT. I mean just the scent of each other drives them wild!!
Though they are attracted to each other Alex can’t get over the fact that she is higher up the lycan ladder than him so he’s not good enough for her. They also have someone out there trying to kill her!!! It’s not a case off will they or won’t they, it’s a case of will they pull it together to last.
Every shifter story is different, some good some some not, this one is good and I can’t wait to see who’s behind the assassination attempts.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Just What I Needed by Lorelei James
Trinity & Walker
VERY SWEET ROMANCE
4 Stars

This is my first book by Lorelei James. It’s comical, lovable, and very well rounded. Usually the books I read are so damn dark and gritty, that it was nice to read something with less chaos.

Trinity is an artist, sometimes struggling, but making ends meet. She keeps her family at arms length and rightfully so. They not only treat her like the “redheaded stepchild,” but they barely even acknowledge her presence.

Walker is from the infamous “Lund” family, but similar to Trinity, he keeps his distance from them for fear of getting the third degree on his dating life from his Momma, or getting roped into helping one of his sibs or cousins.

The supporting character cast is pretty huge. Walker has a ton of family… brothers, sisters, cousins, Mom, Dad, etc. Trinity has her friend Gen… I loved this girl… always pushing Trin to make decisions out of her comfort zone and opening her eyes to the bad juju going on around her.

So, to wrap this up… I found the story very well written and the characters exceptionally developed. The dialogue flowed and felt natural. The tension leading up to the climax was good. It’s 367 (kindle version) pages long and just a little bit too vanilla for my taste, but still good none-the-less.

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.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Disclaim by Pam Godwin
Matias & Camila
I WISH I WAS STILL READING IT! LOVED IT!
5 STARS

So, those of you that know me, know that one of my all time favorites is Pam Godwin. She could write an insurance manual and I’d be mesmerized by the contents! Her words are that fucking good! I intentionally read this slow so I could savor every damn word. I didn’t want it to end. Disclaim is thought provoking, captivating, and just down right brilliant. It will take your breath away and steal your soul.

This is not for the faint of heart so beware. No beautiful cut and dry love story here. This isn’t a BDSM tale of self discovery… more like the dark and dirty things in life we mostly turn a blind eye to. So, if your squeamish, then put this one back on the shelf until you are so inclined to pull up your big girl panties and read one of the best books of 2016.

Camila is one of those women so blinded by her own need to deliver justice to those who do wrong, that she doesn’t even hesitate to put herself in harms way if she believes the outcome will benefit her crusade. She strong, courageous, and cunning! She’s a former sex slave on a mission to take down any and all slave trading rings, but when she poses as a slave herself, things don’t go as planned. Let’s just say Camila is in for a rude awakening.

Matias is all kinds of alpha male. He’s lean, he’s mean, and he’s not taking no for an answer. He’s fighting his own battle that can only be described as hell on Earth. I seriously did not know whether to trust him or not. I’m still not certain! Get ready to fall in love with this man while your insides secretly hate him. No shit!

The supporting character cast is rather hefty. We get to see a small glimpse into Liv and Joshua’s lives, while giggling at Van and Amber a bit. The two characters that stood out the most for me were Tate and Nico. Tate is one of Camila’s best friends, but barely says two words through the entire book. His quiet persona intrigue me and I’m feeling that I need to know more about this beautiful silent giant. Now Nico, he’s Matias’ friends and he’s kind of a prick, but eh, he totally rubbed off on me.

So, this books is definitely going on my top 10 of 2016 no doubt about it. The storyline is exceedingly compelling and those characters, wow so commanding, so realistic. The dialogue flows with proficiency and the tension leading up to the climax is hauntingly superb. I love you Pam Godwin and your messed up mind! You make me wanna be a dirty girl!

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Stain by J.M. Walker
Asher & Meeka
HOLY COWZ…VERY INTENSE STORY
5 Stars

So, this is the second installment into the King’s Harlots series and it just keeps getting better. This was an action packed emotional roller coaster and that tore me up. Such grit and mayhem infused with sex appeal and peppered with humor. You can’t go wrong with this beautiful story.

Asher is on VICE-One and a Navy Seal. He’s trying like hell to shut down a sex trading ring. He’s inserted himself and Meeka into the dark world of monsters. On top of this mindfuck he’s entered into, he’s dealing with his own battles that seem to stay at bay when Meeka is around. What is this dude thinking? He needs some serious help!

Meeka is part of the King’s Harlots MC and still kind of on the outs with Jay the MC President due to some past shit. Meeka is a good girl. The girl nextdoor if you will. She’s quiet, poised, but always ready for anything. That is until Asher asks for her help in taking down this sex trafficking ring. Holy hell, how freaking scary. I cringed every time she had to meet with that evil jerk Charles.

The supporting character cast is fairly large. I think I’ll only mention a few. It was nice to see Angel and Jay making appearances here and there. I hated that fucker Tyler… but then again… I hated him in the first book Grit. He’s still not my fave, but plays an outstanding villain. Now this Charles Brian, holy freaking hell. This guy makes Charles Manson and Jeffrey Dahmer look like the Pope. I don’t think there’s any human left in him, he’s mostly all monster.

So, to say this was good is an understatement. It was fanfuckingtastic! Stain has a great storyline that just keeps you guessing. I loved the characters, good and bad. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, but still somewhat perplexed as to where this is going to go in the next installment. Can’t wait to see! The pacing is perfect and the dialogue flows nicely. Great job Jo.

#Review – Reaper’s Fire by @joannawylde #MC #ReapersForever

 

7bfe3928-6e70-4f3a-bd42-a2a125c7168f

It’s time for more men and motorcycles in the latest from theNew York Times bestselling author of Reaper’s Fall

The club comes first.

I’ve lived by those words my whole life—assumed I’d die by them, too, and I never had a problem with that. My Reaper brothers took my back and I took theirs and it was enough. Then I met her. Tinker Garrett. She’s beautiful, she’s loyal, and she works so damned hard it scares me sometimes . . . She deserves a good man—one better than me. I can’t take her yet because the club still needs me. There’s another woman, another job, another fight just ahead.

Now she’ll learn I’ve been lying to her all along. None of it’s real. Not my name, not my job, not even the clothes I wear. She thinks I’m nice. She pretends we’re just friends, that I’ve still got a soul . . . Mine’s been dead for years. Now I’m on fire for this woman, and a man can only burn for so long before he destroys everything around him.

I’m coming for you, Tinker.

Soon.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Reaper’s Fire by Joanna Wylde
Gage & Tinker
EMOTIONALLY DRAINING, BUT OH SO DAMN GOOD
5 Heart wrenching STARS

Trust me when I tell you… this book will not be what you think it will be. It’s not a typical MC book. It’s not a normal romance. It’s not gonna make you feel all oooie and gooie. Now, let me tell you what it will do. It’ll make your heart leap out of your chest. It’ll take you from the grandest emotions to the most disturbing. And it will make your heart soar with completion.

Tinker has moved back home to Hallies Falls to start her life over after leaving her husband and coming home to help take care of her Dad after her Momma passed away. Tinker is such a complex character. She’s this little spitfire that at first I thought was a total push over. Maybe she was before we met her, but by God she’s anything but now. I love how she handles the “soon-to-be” Ex, always had a comeback for anything he said or did. She made me laugh out loud more times than I can count. Although she’s struggling with her own demons, she never waivers on taking care of her Dad, her friends, and her customers. I love this woman!

Gage is in town to infiltrate the Nighthawks MC to find out what’s muddled with operation and who’s behind the dilemma. He has to pretend to date the MC president’s sister Talia in order to get close to crew… Holy fucking hell… I wouldn’t wish that cuntcake on my worst ememy. In the interim, Gage is falling for his landlord Tinker, but can’t do anything about it for fear of blowing his cover. Auoy Vey Joanna, you really know how to kill us with your words.

The supporting character cast is pretty hefty. Oh ya know all the Reaper boyz and all. Picnic cracked me up every time he had a chat with Gage. Always ripping on each other and crackin’ jokes. Carrie is Tinker’s BFF one of the funniest peeps I’ve read in quite some time. I wish I could go out with them for “manis, pedis, and drinkies.” Everyone needs a friend like Carrie! As for this Talia bitch… this woman reminds me of Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. Seriously, this chick is certifiably insane. Every mention of her name I’d shutter. No joke!

Now all while this shit is all going down with Gage, the MC, Tinker, Talia, and the gang there are wild fires burning in Washington and headed to Eastern Washington while the whole story is going on. As a survivor of a house fire I can’t tell you how many times I cried my eyes out just thinking about these people having to evacuate and come back to nothing. I walked away from my house fire with the clothes on my back so I know what it means to “lose everything.” I loved that Jo added that into the story. It made it that much more meaningful. Thanks Jo!

So, to wrap this long ass review up… This story is everything I needed. I felt the emotion and anguish in bones. The characters were phenomenal, even the dreadful ones. The storyline pulled at my heartstrings and left me feeling full of love and hope. The dialogue flows and the pacing is perfect. I felt like I was a resident of Hallies Falls for godsakes… Great story Jo. I’ll never forget it!

kristis review

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.

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.
