#ComingSoon #Review #Shifter Destiny Disgraced (Talon Pack Book 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Talon Pack continues with a new twist to the Packs and a revelation no one was prepared for.

Mitchell Brentwood is aware that others think he’s the harsh taskmaster Beta trying to keep his Pack alive, but they only see what he wants them to know. He’d once thought he had his path laid out before him, but when his future was violently ripped away, he vowed he’d never let anyone close again—especially not a young wolf from a traitorous Pack.

Dawn Levin may be younger than the war that destroyed her people, but she knows she must still pay for their sins. She’s ready to find her way in this new world where wolves and humans blend as one, but first, she needs to fight her attraction to the dark wolf that stands in her way.

While the two struggle with their feelings and burning attraction for each other, they can’t ignore the world that shakes beneath their feet. There is a new enemy on the horizon, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An adversary that might be closer than they realize.

It’s been a year since the end of the war and the Unveiling things should be good for the Talon Pack, but something new is coming and it has all the packs on edge.
Mitchell is the Talon’s beta, he’s one yummy but grumpy wolf. He’s been keeping a secret from his family for years, nothing that could hurt them mind you, but it’s a secret from his family and it’s a doozy.
Dawn is a wolf from the Central pack, well they aren’t a real pack yet. She is a strong wolf who is a dominant maternal, but with know kids around she is lost.
Years ago it was the Central’s Alpha that started the war with the Redwood pack, during that war some of Central’s decided to take a chance and break away from their Alpha because they wanted no part of what he was doing. It was because of this war and the fact that the Alpha consorted with a demon that the Moon Goddess took away the pack bonds from the Central wolves that were able to escape, making them unable to mate, have new babies, and no hierarchy.
Mitchell has been helping to train the Central pack, since they can feel that soon the Moon Goddess will bless them with the pack bonds once again. He seen Dawn there and wants nothing to do with her, he also has seen her at the barista job in town and refuses to give in to the draw he feels.
Dawn thinks he’s yummy but knows he wants nothing to do with her, but that changes when she is attacked by a rogue wolf. They can deny their wolves any longer. Mitchell and Dawn realize that they have the potential to be mates, but neither is ready for a mate yet and decide to just be “friendly”. Lol.
OMG! Mitchell’s story before Dawn just killed me, talk about a tragic back story. When he tells Dawn about it, she realizes that even if she was ready to be Mitchell’s mate, he will never want a mate. It’s just crazy all around, but they finally get it together.
Ryan, promised a new big bad for us and she did not disappoint, the revelations that came out in this book came out of no where and I can’t wait to see where we go from here.

“An unexpected evil brings both the MC and Military world together in this brand new series by J.M. Walker”

He doesn’t remember.

The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.
Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.
Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.
When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

For those of you that don’t know Max, short for Maxine, and Dale let me fill you in so you are ready for Numb.
Max is the Vice-President of the Kings Harlots. She’s and Jay have been BFF’s since they were kids. She’s a artist and she’s the good one of the club.
Dale is a member of Vice-One. He’s also a man whore. When they first met, they were totally hot for each other. That is until Max told Dale she loved him and she was preggers. Dale being the coward and man whore that he is kicked her to the curb and proceeded to fill his bed with other women trying to replace her, but there is no one like Max.
When we last left the two of them Max had given birth to a still born baby girl and Dale was in a coma.
Ok, the happy part first. Yay, to our resident sadist doctor being in this book, he always makes me happy.
Now the rest, LOL.
I have to say WOW because Walker does a great job of pulling the feels out of ya. I cried, wanted to smack both Dale and Max, and finally smiled.
These two are the definition of a toxic couple. Max hates Dale for they way her treated her when she told him how she felt, that she was pregnant, that he woke from the coma not remembering how he treated her, that she lost her baby girl, and yet she still loves him. Being with him, even if they don’t talk, is the only that makes her sane.
Dale knows he loves Max, knows he did some really screwed up shit to her, even if he can’t remember what. He just wants her back, wants her to forgive and trust him.
These two push and pull each other like a rag doll. When they’re together they heat up the room, but they just cant seem to get their s**t in order. The will they or wont they drives me to drink!!! Lol!!!
Oh, oh, oh, and we now know who is the head of the human trafficking group, in the middle of this too.
Walker girl you drain me, but I can’t want for the next book ill make sure to stock up on tissues and wine.

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Loving Quinn: The Lone Wold Defenders Book 2 by Alicia Montgomery

Happy-go-lucky wolf shifter and hacker Quinn never saw the point of committing to just one person for the rest of his life. After all, with his devilish good looks and charisma, he could have any woman he wants. Any woman, except the sassy almost-witch Selena, who seems resistant to his charms. While he denies his attraction to the curvy redhead, his own animal craves her attention, and Quinn finds it difficult to stay away.

Having no magical talent meant Selena was at the bottom rung of her coven hierarchy. Mocked by her own family and pitied by the rest of her coven, she builds her own life away from them. When an offer comes that could finally give her the respect and standing she’s always wanted, it should have been easy to say yes. But a certain sexy and handsome Lone Wolf shifter has sent her into a tizzy, and she risks the chance of being welcomed back into the fold by giving into her own desires.

When Quinn’s past comes back to haunt him, it puts Selena in the line of fire and he’ll do anything to protect her. However, Selena has problems of her own and she finds herself having to choose between the life she’s always dreamed of or bet her heart on commitment-phobic Quinn. Staying together only means danger and pain, but can they really resist the attraction between them, which could end up imploding both their lives?

If you LOVE reformed playboy/virgin paranormal shifter romances, then READ this book!

Loving Quinn series is a paranormal romance novel with over 60k words. It’s a standalone novel with HEA, hot and sexy scenes, Lycan action and no cheating. It takes place in the True Mates Universe but works as a standalone novel.

Quinn is the Techie of Lone Wolf Security, he is also known as a ladies man or in today’s vernacular a man whore. However, there is something about the best friend of the brothers secretary that he’s drawn to he is going to be the one thing he never is with a woman, her friend.
Selena Merlin is a New York librarian and witch, but she’s a witch in name only because she was born without powers much to her dismay. Being a witch without powers means she’s low man on the witches totem pole and can be banished from her coven at anytime, so she is being forced into a arranged marriage by her father. She knows what type of guy Quinn is but believes him when he says they can be friends.
First off let me say arranged marriage?? What is this Victorian England?? I get it, I really do poor Selena is having to do something for the good of her family that she doesn’t want to do, we’ve all been put in that type of situation. She’s so use to doing things for everyone else and being last in the witch world, she finds it hard to put herself first when she’s in it.
Second, friends with Quinn? Uh, yes please!!! Lol!! I love these two finding their way with each other, the LOTR movie nights are really sweet!!! When they do decide to move it into something more it kills me that they hide it from their friends, Quinn’s family, and that she hasn’t told Quinn about the marriage deal or told her father that she’s not going through with it.
Speaking of Quinn’s family, man that is one humdinger of a plot twist. Nope, these lips are zipped you’re gonna have to read it.
Oh, and someone keeps trying to kill them!!
These are the questions that you’re asking yourself as you’re reading: Are Quinn and Selena Fated Mated? Does Quinn find out about the arranged marriage? Will Selena ever put herself first? Who’s are they trying to kill Quinn, Selena, or both?
By the end i was happily wore out, and laughing my tale off at Jolene and the epilogue. I can’t wait to see what Montgomery has in store for us with Connor, i just know it’s gonna be a beast.

#WOTR #Review #Shifter 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.

 

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

So this is a little novella with one of my favorite topics……..
SHIFTERS!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!! I love shifter stories and this is no different and it’s from one of my favorite authors.
Gemma Stone runs a wolf sanctuary in a little Kentucky town. She is a strong woman who goes at it alone with only her volunteer Larry, but it was her grandfather’s dream and now it is hers.
Eric Jackson comes to Gemma impersonating a Fish and Wildlife officer who is investigating her, but what he really is is a Alpha wolf shifter looking for a rogue shifter.
Whoa mama do the sparks fly off of these as soon as they start speaking!! I mean come on, these attraction these guys have is killer!! For a short little novella Gabelman does a great job of showing how fast mates can find each other and she pulls it your heartstrings by showing a awesome bond between Gemma and her wolves at the Sanctuary.
Gabelman has one little problem with this book though, Eric has brothers and I want to know more!!! Lol, she’s going to be busy because I won’t be the only one!!
If you’re looking for a peak into the shifter mind of Teresa Gabelman this is the novella for you.

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Chance Encounter (The Lamberts of Pacific Knoll Book 1) by Kate Vale

When Alexis McCord’s abusive boyfriend is arrested, she seizes the opportunity to escape with her young son. Now she and 5-year-old Chance are building a life in the tiny, remote beach town of Sandy Reach, Washington. Lexi is even acting on her dream of becoming a baker with her own shop—if only Hugh never finds her.

For Fletcher Lambert, distraught after the death of his wife and baby daughter, Sandy Reach is a handy place to escape his memories, away from his law office and his large, well-intentioned but intrusive family, who are watching and waiting for him to move on. He’s not sure that will ever happen.

Then Fletcher meets Chance. When he learned that the waitress serving him at Omar’s pub is the boy’s mother, sparks fly in in spite of his intentions never to get close to a woman again. Lexi feels them, too, but her mistrust of men forces her to ignore Chance when he declares that Fletcher would make the perfect dad. After all, who listens to a five-year-old in the midst of all this grown-up angst?

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

Lexi McCord is trying to raise her young son right and that means getting away from his abusive and theft of a father. They run while he is in prison after he was arrested for robbing a jewelry store. Their car breaks down outside of Sandy Reach, so that where she tries to change their life around. It’s taken two years, but life is finally looking up for them.
It’s been a year since the death of his wife and baby daughter and Fletcher Lambert is still not over it. He has a hard time being around his niece and nephew, almost has a panic attack when he is called to go to the ER for his little brother, and is losing clients at his office where he practices law.
His law partner has put his foot down and told him he needs to get away and finally deal with it and maybe get some closure so he decides to go to Sandy Reach for some winter fishing and so he doesn’t have to be around his family for the holidays he decides to go for a couple of months.
Fletcher meets a child alone of the beach the first day he is there. He can’t believe that a 5 year old would be allowed to be alone on the beach, let alone be allowed on the beach in the winter without the proper clothing, he learns shortly that he got away from his babysitter. It isn’t until he starts talking to the child that he realizes that he recognizes the child as the one that almost ran out in front of his car when he drove into town and that his mom his the waitress at the pub he just left. The woman that has him thinking thought that were nothing about his wife.
Lexi tries hard to stay way from Fletcher after he tries to pay for fixing her son’s coat he found on the beach after that faithful day, but she can’t. There is something in him that calls to her.
What happens next is a story of a man falling in love again, a woman learning that all men aren’t bad and it’s ok to have feeling for one, and a child that knows what he wants and how to protect his mom.
Vale does a wonderful job showing the emotional storm of a man dealing with the loss of his whole world. She also does a great job showing how hard it is to be a single parent and how hard it is to trust again after leaving a abusive relationship.
When two people learn to love again it’s wonderful and I can’t wait to see more of the Lambert family.

My mother said I wrote my first book when I was five–after I carefully copied the words in one of my favorite stories. A favorite children’s book I still have is a first edition, signed by the author, of MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, perhaps one reason I included reference to it in my indie-novel, PACKAGE DEAL.

Counting my current work as a novelist, I think I’ve experienced at least five different careers, the first four providing lots of grist for the mill of what my characters do or would like to do. One example? Olivia Brown in GRANDDAD’S HOUSE is a realtor. I was one, too! And realtors show up again in CHOICES and in a new book not yet ready for publication.

I hope you enjoy my stories. I love to hear from readers.

#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary Hope Restored (The Gallagher Brothers Book 3) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Gallagher Brothers series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan concludes with the final brother who thought he had everything to look forward to, and the one woman who can handle him.

Life isn’t worth living if you don’t fight to live. That’s what Murphy Gallagher learned at a young age when cancer ravaged his body not once, but twice. Over the course of his survival, he lost his parents and his childhood, but he’s been healthy for years and has become a man he hopes his family is proud of. But when his world tilts on its axis yet again, he’ll have to learn what it means to fight not only the unknown but also his attraction to his best friend.

Tessa Stone works hard and plays harder. She’s spent her life trying to figure out who she is in the present rather than looking back. Yet when she’s forced into close proximity with Murphy, she’ll have to not only be his rock but learn how to relax enough to maybe let him be hers, as well. But seduction doesn’t stop when the world seems to, and close encounters of the naked kind might just be the first step in something much more complicated than either of them bargained for. Life, though, is for living, after all.

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

AHHHHHHH! The end of another of my favorite series by Carrie Ann Ryan!!!! The Gallagher’s started as a spin off of the Montgomery’s and became a phenomenon all their own and that phenomenon has come to a end with the youngest of the brothers, Murphy.
Murphy stole my heart when he first came on the scene in the first book of the series Passion Restored. He is the lead architect for the family business, he’s the Gallagher with the shortest beards but has the longest hair ( Hello!!!!! Who cares how short his beard is, it’s still a beard and that makes him yummy!!!!), and he has dealt with his own mortality as a child, more than anyone should. F**king cancer!!
Tessa is apart of the family being that she is his brother’s fiancée’s BFF. She knows how hot the youngest Gallagher is, he’s her flirting buddy when the group is together. She’s attracted to him but she’s determined to be his friend and just stay the aforementioned flirt buddy.
First let me say; Damn you Carrie Ann, I knew that that Murphy’s story was going to be a rough one I was expecting that. I was not however, expecting that surprise blast from the past!!!!!!
Secondly, she’s makes me ugly cry over bearded men waaaaaay to often!!! Lol!!!
I seriously do not want to say anything other than that because you have to read Murphy to appreciate him and Tessa and all the crazy feels that Ryan produces with this book. He will make you cry, together they will make you laugh, as a family The Gallagher’s will show you how strong a family is.
Thank you Carrie Ann Ryan for bringing another family to life with the Gallagher’s, Thank you for letting Murphy have his perfect story, and thank you for saying we’ll still see glimpses of them again in the Montgomery series.

#Review #Rockers Fatal Temptations (Fatal Cross Live! Book 2) by Theresa Hissong

My life has meaning again. I’m clean and sober, no longer relying on the poison to keep me going night after night as I perform for thousands. I have everything that I’d dreamed about for years; an amazing band, number one songs, money, and great friends. But there was one thing missing…a woman to call my own.

Presley Pittman is the lead singer for Witch’s Spawn and the opening band on our current tour. I find myself intrigued by the beautiful woman and whatever it is that haunts her. There is something mysterious about her that I can’t put my finger on. It isn’t until I notice a scar on her lip that I ask her about her past. I don’t think I could have ever prepared myself for the pain of her confessions.

She has to grow to be able to live and I’m thankful that she lets me be the man to walk beside her on the road to finding herself. When a possible setback in my own life threatens to restore my demons, I have to make the decision to stay strong so that I can be the man that Presley needs, because her own demons aren’t too far behind…threatening to destroy everything she’s ever known about her past.

 

What can I say about Ace and Presley? They are AWESOME! Presley has dealt with a lot of crap in her life and Ace has himself where he wants to be, clean and sober. Seeing his band Mate Taylor find love shows that that it can happen. Ace has been drawn to Presley since she and her band started the tour with them.
Presley has major trust issues outside of her band mates, which is totally understandable, but there is something about Ace that makes her want to add him to her trust circle and be with him.
The way these two connect is awesome, she has become the only addiction that he needs and he has become her rock, her safe port in the storm.
I love when Hissong writes any of her rocker books, she has a way of making you feel like you are there on the road with them.
I can’t wait to read more of the band!!

#Review #Rockers Fatal Desires (Fatal Cross Live! Book 1) by Theresa Hissong

For years, I have worked behind the scenes for my cousin’s band, living my life as simply as possible. Running the inner workings of a rock band is the only thing I know to do. My only saving grace is a long vacation soaking up the sun in some exotic locations around the world between tours.
One steamy night on an island with Taylor Vaughn, the guitarist for the rock band Fatal Cross, and my world is turned upside down. When he doesn’t return my calls, I end up going through hell alone. Little do I know, he’s fighting his own personal demons.
When he fills in on my cousin’s tour for a few weeks, I am forced to work with the man who stole my heart months before on a private island. It isn’t easy being around him, but I am determined to keep my head low and pray this tour ends soon, but does anything ever go as planned?

Cora Maddox is tour manager and roadie extraordinaire for her cousin’s band Glory Days and has been since she was a kid.
She is tiny but mighty and no one knows how to get shit done for a band better than her. Her only problem now is Taylor Vaughn, guitarist for Fatal Cross Live. The little island fling they had while she was on vacation showed her how much she really liked him, but when she tried to contact him for months afterwards he wouldn’t take or return her calls and that showed her that he really was just looking for someone to warm his bed.
Taylor Vaughn, didn’t have a rough childhood his problems started when he and his band fell face first into the sex, drugs, and rock and roll life style. Yes, he was a man whore but something about little Coraline Maddox set him on fire. He knows he screwed the pooch when he never returned her calls but he had to get clean, be better so that when he next came to her he could beg his forgiveness and he could be the man she needed.
Now that they have to be together, because he’s filling in for Glory Day’s guitarist, she doesn’t know how she is going to face him but she knows that she isn’t going to let him know how bad he hurt her.
Man, Hissong is great at writing a rock story she really makes you feel like you are there. How she wrote about Taylor’s addiction problems and how he struggled to get clean and stay clean was awesome.
You can tell that Cora and Taylor feel for each other, even after the shit that they’ve been through. When they need each other the most though will they be able to stand strong or will they crash and burn? I’ll never tell!!!! Lol!!!
Check out Taylor, Cora, and the rest of the Fatal Desire crew to find out.

Killian’s Secret: Lone Wolf Defenders Book 1 is a paranormal romance novel with over 50k words. It’s a standalone novel with HEA, hot and sexy scenes, Lycan shifter action and no cheating.

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

Can you say SPIN OFF??!!!! Lone Wolf Defenders is a spin off of Alicia Montgomery’s Fated Mates series. We met Killian in the last book of the Fated Mate series Tempted by The Wolf. Killian one of three adopted brothers of Meredith from that book.
This series is about all the brothers and Killian being the first.
Killian is a lone wolf, a wolf with no family but his adopted family, no clan of his own. For those of you who don’t know Killian, his brothers, and Meredith were raised by a human who taught them skills to do several things, security, espionage, surveillance, protection, and if need be theft.
He and his brothers now work for Sebastian Creed and are running a branch of security called what else “Lone Wolf Security” and he and his brothers are being allowed to in New York because of this and because their sister is pledged to the New York Alpha.
Now that the scene is set, lets get down to business!!
4 months before his adopted father died Killian was on a job to steal back a lost tapestry for a country that was once war torn. While doing this job he met Luna. While originally he was just using her for the job he grew to really like her.
Things happened ( No I’m not telling you what, you gotta read the book!) and they were torn apart.
Now they are once again in the same city and a chance meeting has them together again.
Luna hates Killian after the way things happened between them, she also is still in love with him though she doesn’t what to be, and now she needs him to keep her safe. Killian has put Luna out of his mind but not out off his heart.
There are so many ups and downs in this book. Montgomery does a great job of keeping a reader on their toes!!!
These Lone Wolves could totally be alphas, that is how strong a lone wolf is.
Killian he has Luna best interest at heart, but totally thinks his way is the only way to get things done and she has no problem telling him how wrong he is.
After things are totally cleared up will they stay with each other? I’m not telling…………..
I will say this though, this new series is gonna be a good one these brothers are super yummy and and strong as heck.

#ThrowBack #Review #Paranormal #Shifter Big Bad Bite (Big Bad Bite Book 1) by Jessie Lane

The first book in the best-selling Big Bad Bite Series!

What would it be like to live in a world where you were considered abnormal even to those who were above the norm?

Jenna O’Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community. It’s important she hide her true nature from both humans and Others.

Right after moving to a new city, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee. He’s an alpha werewolf determined to do two things: figure out exactly what Jenna is and have her all to himself.

As if that weren’t enough for Jenna to deal with, a group of extremist Shifters who consider humans to be cattle and who think that factions of Others should stay within their own species—never to intermingle—come to town. Jenna has to find a way to shut them down, but in the process of trying to do that, she discovers things about herself that even she had never thought were possible.
Who said the wolf was what you had to worry about?
Welcome to the real world—the Other world.

Contains mature themes.

Ok, let me start off with I’ve never read any of Lane’s paranormal work before, just her military and MC, but I loved this! This series doesn’t just have shifters in it, but demons, vampires, and witches too. One Bad Bite is the first book in the Series of the same name. In this book we meet Jenna O’Conner, kickass new member of Wilmington’s SWAT team. With Jenna it’s a case of “looks can be deceiving” because her petite frame hides what’s really inside. She is a shifter, but no one outside of her mother and two uncles know, she’s been made to hide all her life because she is a hybrid and been told that the community of Others finding out would be a death sentence.
Jenna is written just like I like my heroines, tough! She is a girl who knows and goes after what she wants, which is a life. She knows she wants to be in law enforcement and does it, by assuring her mom and uncle that she will keep hidden. On Jenna’s first day she is sent out with her unit to handle a hostage situation, this is where she meets her partner Kent. At the situation she meets, Adam McPhee. Adam, hot, redheaded, motorcycle drivin’ Alpha wolf of North Carolina.
When Jenna finds out that Kent is a Demon, while they’re out after their shift and she takes off. She has been warned after all that any Other that finds out about her isn’t good. When she runs out of the bar who’s there? Adam, that’s who!! Kent tries to talk to her and tell her it’s ok, but she still runs and Adam chases. It’s during the chase that Adam discovers that she is a wolf!! This story has it all wolves, tigers, demons. Of course some of them are bad and the bad ones aren’t just bad; in my mind, they’re evil.
Adam and Jenna must work together, with her long lost family, to save another pack master. Along the way Jenna finds out not every Other wants hybrids dead. Adam finds out Jenna is no ordinary human-wolf hybrid, but a demon-wolf hybrid the only one on Earth. Together they find the piece that’s been missing in their life, each other.
