#Review – Shade’s Lady (Reapers MC 6.5) by Joanna Wylde

33293941

New York Times bestselling author Joanna Wylde returns to the world of the Reapers Motorcycle Club…

Looking back, none of this would’ve happened if I hadn’t dropped my phone in the toilet. I mean, I could’ve walked away from him if I’d had it with me.

Or maybe not.

Maybe it was all over the first time he saw me, and he would’ve found another way. Probably—if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that Shade always gets what he wants, and apparently he wanted me.

Right from the first.

Goodreads

Amazon

I have a soft spot for the Reaper Men. When they see something they want they go after it full steam ahead. They will get what they want and no one better step in their way or try to take or hurt what is theirs.

Mandy has not had an easy life. If it weren’t for the bad luck she finds herself in she wouldn’t have any at all.  She has not had the best luck picking men out but what she does have is a loving sister and nieces and a job that helps keep the five of them afloat. Once again she finds herself in over her head when it comes to a boyfriend. She finds herself face to face with the President of the Reapers. All I can say is Mandy is not a sit back and take what is dished out to her but push her the wrong way and you better be prepared for the crazy that is the wrath of Mandy.  I love her spirit and spunk she maybe naive to somethings but she is strong and has willpower to go with it…or maybe it is Wonder Woman Power.

Shade is all alpha knows what he wants when he sees it and given the chance to swoop in and take it he will.  He knows what he wants and once he gets it no one will take it away without a fight. I loved seeing a different side of Shade when he was around Mandy he would do anything for her and the way he came to her rescue was all Shade. He was a take charge kind of guy and to see Mandy not back down to Shade was amusing.

The chemistry between Shade and Mandy was sizzling. I would like to see more of Bone and Sara story and Hannah and Heath. I just love this series and the more Joanna writes about them the more I want to soak up each word written.

REVIEW BY: TWINSIE KIDDO KARINA

Cody had been fishing since he was itty bitty and wanted to teach his friends Hunter and Samantha how to fish. Cody, Hunter and Samantha wanting to catch Big Bertha, the cat fish.

I think the book was really good. I especially like the characters they were really nice in the book. My favorite part of the book was when Samantha didn’t want Cody to put the bluegill on his fishing hook. My second favorite part was when Samantha, Hunter and Cody found the Old Man Summers lost dog in the woods. Hunter was really funny, Samantha laughed at everything and Cody was really strict. Samantha and Hunter fought on what each other could and couldn’t do.  I think that people who like to go fishing would enjoy this book.

#Review – Master of Solitude (Mountain Masters & Dark Haven Book 8) By: Cherise Sinclair

35103641

Since childhood, Mallory McCabe has dreamed of falling in love with a hero. And then one saves her life. He’s honest…and blunt. Deadly, but filled with pain. Overpowering, yet ever so gentle with her. Oh yes, she’s found her hero. Taking him to her bed is simply…right. As is losing her heart.

How could she have known he’d want nothing more to do with her?

His indifference hurts. She vows to forget him…then he buys the land next to hers.

Released early from prison, all Sawyer Ware wants is to put his life back together. His police detective brother houses him while he makes plans. But when a violent gang targets his brother, Sawyer puts his future on hold. He’ll have to take on the gang first. After a decade as a Navy SEAL, he won’t–can’t–walk away if someone he loves is threatened.

His mission is likely to prove bloody. He sure can’t afford to get involved with a woman, especially his captivating neighbor. He hungers to be near her, to enjoy her clear laugh, her easy friendship, and the peace she brings wherever she goes. A relationship is absolutely out of the question.

Why won’t his heart obey orders?

Goodreads

Amazon US

I almost forgot how much I loved these men.  The chemistry Mallory and Sawyer have is explosive but they both try to fight it.

Sawyer was released early from prison and is now trying to protect his brother and the people of Bear Flat. See when the prison closed it left behind a violent gang and they had their sights on Sawyers brother for killing the leader of the gang in a prison break.  Sawyer being the former Navy SEAL was all about taking them out before they got to his family. A spunky contractor caught his attention but getting involved with someone is the last thing he needs especially if they are just wanting a little thrill of being with an ex-con.

Mallory runs a contract company and looking for the perfect guy that she can blend well with. Little did she know her one night stand would be her neighbor in the next few days and she would be working on his property?  The way these two keep coming together and then repelling each other like a pair of magnets is magnetizing.  Mallory knows when to push Sawyer and when to let things go but when he rejects her in town it is heart crushing.

Sawyer has to push Mallory away to keep her safe but she is not one to sit by and watch her town go in the gutter. She is a fighter and can swing a broom with the best of them. She rallies the town and puts herself in the middle of all the danger Sawyer has tried so hard to keep her away from. Now he is forced to protect his brother, Mallory and the town that he is starting to see as his.

I love Mallory and her gift she is loving, caring and protective in her own way. She sees someone in trouble she jumps in to help. There was a lot of push and pull between Mallory and Sawyer. Mallory was all in but Sawyer was still in protecting mode and protection meant he needed distance. I enjoyed seeing the Mastersons, the Hunts, and even Simon and Xavier. I enjoyed this book Mallory is an introvert but when the time comes to stand up and push back she is all in especially when her friends are in danger.

A few of my favorites:

Sawyer didn’t think a woman had ever looked at him as Mallory did now – as if she could see past his skin and into his soul. And still liked what she saw.

“Good. But, Mallory, you’re new. Even if you forget the colors, it’s all right. I’m going to be right here with you, figuring out what you’re saying. What you need.” His eyes were steady on hers. He was totally in control of himself – and her.

Well, honestly. Mallory scowled. “Although I believe in recycling, you’ve gone too far. Good advise shouldn’t be returned like you would a… a soda bottle.”

Authors often say their characters argue with them. Unfortunately, since Cherise Sinclair’s heroes are Doms, she never, ever wins.

#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.

Goodreads

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!!

#Review – Rabid Wolf (Olento Research Series – Book 3) by Sarah Noffke

Rabid Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research # 3)

Rabid and hungry for vengeance, one wolf won’t stop until he’s put to death.

A string of murders involving women are making the residents of Los Angeles panic. They’re calling the serial killer the “rabid wolf” because he tears his prey open by the throat and leaves behind a maimed body.

Meanwhile, at the Lucidite Institute, the pack is training, under Zephyr’s instruction. He knows that soon they’ll have to go after the rabid wolf and also rescue other members of the pack. However, they need to work together in order to be successful. They need to operate as one.

Adelaide, knowing that she needs to put an end to Olento Research’s corrupted experiments, goes undercover working at its sister company, Parantaa Research. It’s as a new employee that she meets Mika Lenna, putting herself in a deadly position. As long as she maintains her cover then she can gain covert information and find out how to destroy Olento Research and its CEO.

However, Mika is tired of the Lucidites beating him. These are his werewolves. He’s the one who invested in creating them. And now the shareholders are pressuring him to deliver. That’s why he decides it’s time he sees the future, like the Lucidites. He needs to know where the next werewolf will be and when. And he needs a monster that can take them down.
The stakes are even higher in the third installment of the Olento Research series. The villains are more deadly. The heroes are growing stronger. But who will win? Beast, man or wolf?

Goodreads

Amazon US

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

This series keeps getting better and better the twist and turns have me going in all different directions. It is like keeping score one for the good guys, one for the bad guys, who is going to get the next one. The Lucidites and Olento Research are both out to find the werewolves. The cat and mouse game has me captivated.

Hunter is on a warpath trying to settle the score with those who did wrong by him. Only problem is he is leaving a path of carnage behind him. Adelaide went undercover to find out more about Olento and where it is located. Talk about nail biting couple of chapters….will she find the evidence she is looking for, will she find more than she bargained for….will she get caught by the ruthless evil Mika?

Seeing all these characters grow and find their place in the scheme of things is amazing.  I need to know more about Malcolm, Rio, Zephyr, Hunter, Rox, Conner, and yes even Kris the invisible girl. One of my favorite scenes is when Adelaide takes Lucien to the library. I have a feeling things are going to get worse before they get better. Waiting patiently for Bad Wolf because I need to know more.

A few of my favorites:

“You totally froze up there, Pound Puppy. You’re supposed to deflect attacks. Not stand like a fucking statue,”

Connor took his time running his eyes over Adelaide’s expression as she spoke. She was such a different sort than he’s ever met before. And he girl could produce illusions. She probably thought that people respected her because of her father. But he wasn’t impressed by her because of whom she was related to, but rather because she was like whom she was related to. Adelaide was the embodiment of all things Connor had heard about Ren Lewis. She was brave and mysterious and powerful and pulled it all off with the perfect degree of snarky indifference.

She instinctively felt that he could do many things with that stare. Maybe even put her back together.

“I think you’re responsible for killing the last Neanderthal. I always knew women were the death of men,” he said, standing up and towing the gigantic man off Rox.

He pressed his mouth to hers, breathing her in. Adelaide didn’t pull away. Didn’t want to. Instead she kissed him back, engrossed by the softness of his lips, of the taste of his mouth, at the thoughts that only spoke of how much he accepted her. Of how much he wanted her. Of how much he’d always wanted her. Since the beginning.

#Review #ReleaseBoost – Blood Bound (Others of Edenton: Book 10) – by: Brandy L. Rivers

35110410

A new and deadly game has swept through Washington state.

After releasing her brother from centuries of torment, Consuela nearly let guilt drag her down. A Dreamwalker, wasn’t ready to let her slip away. He would have done anything to ease the burden of her past.

Declan found her in dreams, falling apart. Having been down that road, lingering too long on the wrong choices, he couldn’t idly stand by while watching her suffer. He was determined to help her find another way.

Back in Edenton, Consuela would be pulled into a Silver Council investigation. A terrifying, immersive roleplaying game was gaining popularity in Seattle. Humans pretending to be vampires—but drained corpses started showing up.

With Declan’s help, and her gifts, they go undercover to stop the real vampires, and end the Death Fount before the truth could be revealed and more lives lost.

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

WOW another great book by Brandy L. Rivers. This is book 10 of Others of Edenton where Consuela and Declan are taking on Vampires and demons all while trying to figure out their connection to one another.

What does one do when they are struggling with guilt so big you don’t know how you will overcome it? Consuela is breaking down and Declan can feel her pain when he visits her in her dreams. Declan does the only thing he can by going to her to try and help. But how can she trust anyone after what she has been through? Declan and Consuela are in the middle of helping the Silver Council deal with a group of vampires that are playing a deadly game of Blood Bound.

This book has everything I went through so many emotions plus there was action and suspense. The love story between Declan and Consuela was genuine. I enjoyed being able to see all the different characters and love the way Brandy intertwines the characters and we get to see glimpses of them. My heart was absolutely broken after seeing what Amelia went through. I am so ready for the next book already.

A few of my favorites:

Staying away wasn’t and option. He sought her out every day he went to sleep, hoping to dampen the pain growing in her eyes.

The door shut and Declan pulled Consuela into his arms. “Tell me what you need.” She pushed him back and pulled her shirt over her head. “I have everything I need in front of me.”

#Review #ReleaseDay – Misguided (Fallen Aces MC Book 5) by Max Henry

Title: Misguided
Series: Fallen Aces MC Book 5
Author: Max Henry
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: July 18, 2017
Only by losing my freedom, did I realize I was never free at all.

 

My father, the president of the Fallen Aces MC, sent me away to save me from a cold-blooded fate handed down by a tyrannical drug lord. Now, over a year later, my brother has come to take me home.


Only it doesn’t feel like home anymore.

I’m lost, wandering familiar yet foreign halls as I try to work out what my purpose is in this club. What can I offer the people who sacrificed so much to save me? I need a guiding light, something to get me on the right path. Or someone.

Someone like him.

A cocky, playful ladies man, Dog is nothing like what I thought I’d ever need. But as he strips the colors from his back, and reveals the true brilliance of the ones below, I can’t help but fall in love with the overbearing yet guarded man.

He’s guaranteed to break my heart, yet here I stand with it in my hands, offering him all I have left.

All that I am.

Maybe I’m not supposed to survive after all?

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

This is the 5th book in the series it can be read as a stand-a-lone but highly suggest you download the previous 4 and catch up. I enjoyed the chemistry between Mel and Dog. My heart went out to Mel watching her struggle with her place and where she fit in then to see the other side to Dog than just the cocky playboy had me in aww.

How does a woman who has been on her own in the deep woods get back to the life she once knew over a year later? Mel is trying to wrap her brain around the loss of her Daddy and sister while the only family she has left, her brother, is missing. She is struggling to be in a place that brings back so many memories and also trying to figure out who she is these days.  Mel is no longer the woman she use to be and she feels she no longer has a place with the Club. But what she does know is she is she feels something when around Dog but Dog is Dog and how can she trust her heart to a man that has repeatedly shown that he is a love’em and leave’em time. Mel knows she deserves more that than and Dog has to show her that he does not think of her the same way he does the others. Dog has to show her she is someone special.

The side that Mel brings out in Dog is incredible. He shows her a side that no one has ever seen or knows. He is amazingly patient with her and when he thinks she is in trouble he comes running. It amazes me how well he knows Mel, he knows she is strong and helps her figure out who the real Mel is and what she means to the Club.

I loved the slow building relationship between Mel and Dog and how Dog opens up to her. My favorite scenes are the one where we see a different side of Dog and the shopping/hunting scene. I have to say I am excited to see what Max Henry has instore for us next.

A few of my favorites:

“I wouldn’t have picked that. Didn’t they call you something else before you got your road name?” “Shithead. Grunt. Pisshole. Kid.” I smirk. “Take your pick. Nobody actually knew my name.”

“I don’t know how to do this,” he calls through the darkness, his voice hoarse. “I don’t know how to be serious with someone. But you make me want to learn, Mel. You’d be worth giving this up for.”

 “Don’t be angry at me, babe.” He staggers right, jamming a boot out awkwardly to regain his balance. “I’m a jerk when I’m him.” He points to the cut, groaning as he sinks to his knees. “He’s an idiot,” he says, slurring his words a little. “A fuckin’ idiot. But this guy,” he pounds his chest twice with closed fists, “he only wanted to see you smile.” His words die off, his voice weakening as he sags on his knees, his head almost touching the ground. “He loves your smile,” Dog whispers. No, scratch that. Koen whispers.
“You listen up good, Mel, ‘cause I’m only gonna say this once.” Dog runs a finger along my jaw, a thumb over my lips. “You never owe a man anythin’, got it? If you don’t want to do it—don’t. And if a man ever makes you feel bad for that” —he shakes his head and sighs—“well he ain’t much of a man, then, is he?”
A year in solitude has done nothing to dampen this woman’s spirit. She might have been unsure and out of sorts when she first got back, but as the weeks have gone by she’s simply gone from strength to strength. She’s every bit the born leader she professes not to be. A warrior’s heart packed into one spitfire of a package. Perfection.

Goodreads

Amazon US

I have been absolutely enthralled by this series but after reading Rabid Wolf I am anxiously awaiting Bad Wolf. This author pulled out all the stops with Rabid Wolf. Definitely not for the faint of heart. I have to say this is one the series darker books. We meet Hunter and he is the Rabid Wolf. He is wreaking havoc and brutally murdering women all of the city. But you will delve deep into his mind and you will understand more about him and how he came to be. Zephyr and the pack need to get him back and contained. Adelaide has gone undercover trying to get into Olento Research to try and cut the head off the snake.

#WOTR #NewRelease #Review – Before the Cherry Trees (Cook Brothers #3) by: H. D’Agostino

 There are always those unexpected moments in our lives that make us realize that we aren’t in control.

I’ve known Sharron was it for me for as long as I can remember. We met when we were just kids, and fell in love. At eighteen when she told me she was pregnant, I did what I’d always planned to do… I asked her to marry me.

As the years passed by so did our dreams. We grew up fast, but our love never faltered. Our marriage was solid, and I thought we could survive anything… but I was wrong.

‘For better or worse’ is easier said than done. When you feel like everything is crumbling around you it’s easy to give up and walk away, at least it was for her.

I have no intention of letting her go. She’s my other half, and I know she can find her way back to me. I just need her to remember how we were before the cherry trees.

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

This book was hard to read at some points and will hit close to home for some. I will say you will probably want to have some tissues handy while reading this.

Trevor and Sharon were high school sweethearts and their love is deep. However, when one of the happiest times in your life and it becomes the worst time things fall apart. This is what happened with Sharon.  She is trying to deal with this on her own that ends up taking her, Trevor and the family on a downward slope.

There were some tough chapters in this book but when it came to all the flashbacks of Trev and Sharon they were amazing.  I loved seeing these two as young adults and trying to make everything work at a young age. They had strength and determination then. However, Sharon seemed to lose some of that this time. Watching Sharon go through this was heartbreaking but seeing Trev and his amazing sweet side was heartwarming. These two went through so much together and to see when Sharon gave up Trev was right there trying to get her back. OH, the things he did.

I fell hard for the Cook brothers each in their own way and will miss them. However, being able to seeing them grow from young adults to the family men they are was one of the best parts. To see how the family supports each other and helps one another out is something everyone should have.
