I’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

This book is the second in the More Than Words series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory, secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you read the installments in order, but the main romance of each book is a stand-alone.

This book contains lines that may make you laugh, events that may make you cry, and scenes that will probably have you squirming in your seat. Don’t worry about cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed! (Does not contain elements of BDSM or romantic suspense.)

 

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

Griffin Reed is Maxon Reed’s estranged brother. 3 years ago he believed his brother and the woman that he loved lied and kept him in the dark, his hurt ego caused him to shove them both away and to do a bad thing. It took years for him to realize what he did and why but now he wants them both back.
More Than Need You doesn’t pick up right where More Than Want You ended, but about a couple of weeks before.
Britta Stone loved Griffin with everything she had, he was her first in all ways and when he shoved her away he crushed her.
When she finally is moving on with her life, Griffin comes roaring back claiming that he didn’t know about their son and that he still loves her.
Man, Black wrote a good one here. Griffin trying to prove that he does in fact want to be the man that Britta need, even though she already is engaged, shows that he knows what he did all though years ago was beyond stupid. Britta still loves him and she fights so hard against it and its no wonder with how badly he hurt her, should she believe that he is changed and give him another chance or should she stand continue to guard her heart and marry a man she doesn’t love just because she knows he’s a safe bet.
Seeing Griff try to get her back is awesome, but seeing him be a father? That right there is panty melting!!!
Yes Griff did something stupid, but when he explains why he has such a hard time trusting the good in things you can see that it was bound to happen at some point, it just happened with his brother and Britta and it ended up hurting him too.
Also, seeing him get his brother back and to be working with him, shows that family is everything and you really need to talk before you do something stupid when you jump to conclusions.
I can’t wait to see what happens with Griffin and Maxon’s sister in the next book, if she’s anything like her brother’s it’s gonna be good.

#NewRelease #Contemporary #Review Inked Expressions (Montgomery Ink 7) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink Series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the brother who keeps his secret and the one woman he shouldn’t want.

Everly Law married the love of her life and on the eve of giving birth to their twins, lost him in a tragic accident. Now she’s a single mother working overtime at her bookstore trying to make sure her boys have the life they deserve. Her life is busy enough without her adding dating a Montgomery. As past secrets come to light, she’ll need Storm more than ever—even if she doesn’t realize it.

Storm Montgomery has spent his life atoning for sins that only few know he’s committed. When he lost his best friend, he promised his widow that he’d always be there for her—even when she wanted nothing to do with him. But when a single touch ignites passions they’ve both buried deep inside, he’ll have to remember exactly who is in his arms and that taking chances might be far more dangerous than they bargained for.

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

Another brooding Montgomery? Yes please!!!!!
Storm Montgomery is one of the Montgomery twins and co-owner of the Montgomery Inc construction company that his father started. The man has a big secret and has been carrying around so long that I think its starting to get to him.
Everly Law is the widow of Storm’s best friend. The three of them were all friends in college and remained close afterwards. When Jonathan died Ev was pregnant with twins and went into labor when she was told about his death. For the past three years, she has been a single mom and business owner. She doesn’t like to need help from anyone, but especially Storm who is boys godfather.
Something hasn’t been quite right between the two for a while and neither knows why.
First off Ev is a strong as h*** woman, any single mom is. You can see in the way that Ryan writes, that her boys are her life.
Storm loves those little boys like they are his own and will do anything for them and Ev. The two do not see the attraction that they have for each other, it’s almost funny.
Second, secrets can’t stay hidden forever whether you spill it yourself or someone from the past does it, they are going to come out.
Storm secret isn’t as bad as he thinks it is, but it does lead him in finding a secret that isn’t is own, one that could kill Everly.
I love watching two people come together and these two are no exception. It takes them a while to figure out that they are better together, stronger together, but they do. The Montgomery family is known for being bigger than life and pulling people into it and that is what they did to Everly and her boys before her and Storm got together. I will be sad when these series comes to a end, I’m really going to miss this family that you can help but fall in love with. However, I’m super happy that we will be getting a spin off with another branch of the Montgomery family and Ryan did a great job of introducing some of the new players with a family cookout.
Storm and Everly, finding love after years of friendship is a beautiful thing. Storm finally letting go of his secret and finding some closure is too. The final Montgomery, well Denver Montgomery, is going to be a doozy and I can’t wait for Storm’s twin to get his!!!!

#Review #WOTR – Call of the Raven (The Union) by Shawn Reilly

17661306

 

Love is something everyone longs for at the deepest level—but for some, love is a curse. This is most certainly true for Asher Lake, the Keeper of an unknown group of people called ani-shifts. Ani-shifts, those with the ability to shift into animal forms, compose a secretive body of individuals known simply as the Union.
A wolf in shifter form, Asher lives with a curse placed upon him and his predecessors by the elusive Raven—a dark entity whose identity remains a mystery. According to the ancient archives, the Raven’s curse is conditional and set in motion by one fatal decision: if a Keeper ever allows himself to fall in love, he will die.
Choosing to live in isolation within the walls of Lake Manor, a private estate concealed by the dense woods of Brokenridge, Asher has vowed never to love or to fall in love with anyone believing it to be the only way to survive the curse. However, after ten years of neglecting his people and the protégés left in his care, along with the impending threats of an uprising, Asher learns the only way to break the Raven’s curse on future Keepers, thereby preventing them from suffering the same fate, is to accept his.
This becomes Asher’s biggest challenge of all when he encounters Elle Ison, the woman of his dreams. Does Elle hold the key? Can she help Asher change his fate?

 

Goodreads

 

Don’t resist. Fate is fate and things are meant to be. Or so they say…..

First, I must say that paranormal is one of my favorite genres. I love shifter books but sometimes things get a little redundant when they are all similar. Call of the Raven is so much more. There is a lot of world building and the author does a fantastic job. And some of the characters, well, they are a little intense but soooo relateable. Definitely not your normal shifter story.

Asher is the Keeper and is destined to die an early death once he falls in love. Grant is his predecessor and tried to set things in motion to break the curse. To try and avoid this fate Asher has closed himself off and vowed not to love or fall in love. With this he has neglected his family and society. 10 long years have passed and secrets are unfolding. Asher and his group of proteges are trying to find Grant’s daughter (that no one knew about) and Asher finds the woman who he has only seen in his dreams.

Things then get real sticky and the angle is not clear on who and what is really happening. The story keeps you guessing, constantly trying to figure it out. You will be as confused as the characters (in the best way possible) as you feel like you are right in the middle of the story. The hierarchy of the shifters and their society is completely different than what I have read in the past. This is truly a great start to what I expect to be a great series. I am looking forward to the 2nd book and more from this author!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired school teacher took me under her wing. After some tutoring and testing, she informed my parents that the reason I was having trouble in school wasn’t because I was dumb but instead dyslexic.
When my stepfather heard this, he decided to take me to a used bookstore with the belief that the best way to improve my reading skills was to read. Some of the books were hard to get through at first, but with his encouragement I refused to give up. We made many trips to that bookstore, and I especially loved the science fiction and fantasy sections.
Then one day, after complaining about the ending of a particular book, he told me that if I didn’t like the books that I had been reading, then to write one myself—so I did. My first attempt resulted in a horribly written western when I was fourteen, staring a cocky gun slinging cowboy by the name Curt Calhoun. Curt along with his seven brothers, who all shared C names in common, may never have seen the pages of a book, but that was the day I started writing, and never stopped.
I have over fifty books on my computer which I’ve written in various genres, all of which are waiting to come to life. Even though my ability to write has improved over the years, I am humble enough to admit that I cannot venture on this journey alone

Shawn Reilly lives in Mt. Comfort Indiana with her husband, and three daughters. She is the author of The Union series and The Children of the Alliance Trilogy. She supports those with Lupus, Fibromyalgia, and animal rescue.

Prologue

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was in love with her. But almost as fast as that love formed, she was taken from me. Now as I looked down at my daughter, laying in my arms with her eyes closed, I only imagined that she would open her eyes for me. Just give me a breath. Anything. Wake up for me, baby girl.

When my lips touched her forehead, I prayed with everything in me that she would cry. But she didn’t. She couldn’t. It wasn’t fair. None of this was fair. The man I loved wanted nothing to do with me and the daughter I didn’t know, was stolen from my very body.

I begged to anyone who would listen, let her stay with me. Take me instead. She didn’t deserve this. She didn’t deserve any of it.

With tears rolling down my cheeks, my sobs of anguish ripped through me. They took hold and strangled me, sucking the air from my very lungs.

“I love you, baby girl,” I kissed her softly on her perfect mouth. “I love you and I don’t even know you,” I said through my tears. Brushing my thumb over her full cheek, I kept my lips against her forehead. “Lord, give me strength. Help me move on from this.” My breath hitched. “Help me learn to live without her.”

“Maxine.”

I didn’t look up at the gentle voice, knowing that the person had come to take my baby away.

“It’s time, dear,” the nurse reached a hand out, placing it gently on my baby’s head. “I’m so sorry.”

A sob tore from my throat. “It’s not fair,” I screamed, my soul shattering around me. “It’s not fair. I need more time. Please.”

The older nurse nodded, leaving me alone with my daughter.

Lying down on the bed, I kept her by my side, holding her close.

It never should have been like this. We were supposed to be happy. Just her and I.

When my baby girl was taken from my arms, the last bit of light inside of me went with her. My world would forever be clouded in a sea of darkness.

Because of this, a part of me died.

Because of him, I would never be the same.

#WOTR #NewRelease #Review – Craving His Command by Jenna Jacob

Synopsis

After being rescued from a monster posing as a Master, Mercy O’Connor—known as Symoné at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender. The only problem is, she’s set her sights on sexy, commanding Sir Justice, who studies her with his dissecting, arousing stare…but never offers to show her his ropes. Worse, Mercy realizes she not only craves his dominance, she yearns for the notoriously aloof Dom’s affection.

If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, Symoné would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight. He keeps his distance…until it becomes clear he’s not the only Dominant who wants her. Determined to guard his soul, Kellan invites her to kneel for him. But once he does, he realizes that falling in love with Symoné is not only a threat to his well-ordered world, it’s inevitable.

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

We are back at one of my favorite fictional places…..Club Genesis!!!!
Mercy O’Conner aka Symoné has been drawn to the beauty of the Dom/sub relationship for a while. She thought that she had found her Master that would teach her the ways of being a good sub. What she actually found was a master manipulator Davis Kerr otherwise known as Master Kerr.
In the last Doms of Genesis book he was kicked out of the club and tried to start his own by poaching members of Genesis, a few of the Masters and their subs went undercover to infiltrate it and actually ended up rescuing a few subs with Symoné being the main one who needed the help after Master Kerr continued to beat her bloody after she had used her safe word.
Now she must deal with Kerr coming threading and stalking her after she filed charges against him, charges that were thrown out.
Master Justice has been watching Symoné since she’s been coming to Genesis, watching because he knows if he got close enough to her to do the things he really wanted his heart couldn’t take it.
Master Justice is Judge Kellan Graham, after saving Mercy when Davis threatens her in the courthouse he gets closers than he intended.
Symoné knows Master Justice, well she knows of him from Genesis, she has been watching him as much as he has her. She thinks that he is the perfect Master to teach her the right way to connect with the submissive within her, however he refuses to and she can’t understand why, After all she just wants a Master of her own.
Symoné is the bratty sub that Master Justice likes, but she is also a threat to his heart and mind.
What happens next is a story of secrets, threats, and love. Will Kerr catch Mercy or will he continue to be one step ahead. Will Kellan give in to his desires? Will Symoné ever find a Master?
I’ll never tell, you have to read for yourself. It’s worth it I promise!!! I can’t wait for the next in this series!!!!

I’m Noah
Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team
and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to
retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping
to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get
instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since
she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last
woman I’m seen with.
 
On second
thought, we can help each other…
 
I need a
steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not
entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming
orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s
how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our
respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can
picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I
don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her
enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.
 
This book is the third in the More Than Words
series. The books are companions, not serials, meaning that backstory,
secondary characters, and other elements will be easier to relate to if you

stand-alone.

#Review #NewRelease – Possessed by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts of San Francisco #4) by Susan Griscom

34938361

 

They possess the power to make their dreams come true—but it won’t be easy.

Preston Knight—Elvis to his friends—loves being a vampire. The night he was turned was the first step to him becoming the kind of man he always hoped to be. Now, he’s a rock star. What could be better? But the one thing that would make his world complete is just out of reach. The woman he yearns for has some serious secrets, and despite him knowing that she wants him just as much as he wants her, she won’t let him in.

Lily Grey never asked to be a vampire. The choice was taken from her eons ago, and things never improved. Now, she finds herself peddling drugs on the streets of San Francisco and playing the part of doting wife to a possessive and sadistic vampire with delusions of grandeur. But family means everything to Lily, and she’s willing to sacrifice everything for it…even her one chance at happiness with the sexy-as-sin vampire who sets her heart ablaze.

When one night of passion opens the door for a century of secrets to be revealed, Lily and Preston must fight for not only what they believe in but also what they love.

 

Goodreads

 

Whoa! What a wild ride and with a wicked twist!

This is Preston’s, AKA Elvis, story. He has finally found someone that intrigues him enough to keep him from running around anymore. He has found Lily, another vampire, but she has secrets galore. They always meet in the seedy part of town and hang out at the club, I.V. They are falling for each other hard and fast. Preston doesn’t understand why she won’t take the next step. He finally starts to break Lily’s walls down by giving her a piece of him. She learns about how he was turned. Preston becoming a vampire was one of the best things that happened to him. However, for Lily it was a curse. He starts to feel like he is getting somewhere with Lily when she just disappears. Here is where it gets crazy. These two are connected in more ways than one. The depths of the secrets that unfold are intense! They do get their HEA but not without one helluva fight. I love that Susan Griscom gives us this piece of Elvis. This is a must read series!

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Tempted by the Wolf (Fated Mates 6) by Alicia Montgomery

***In the exciting conclusion to the True Mates Series, Lone Wolf Meredith and powerful warlock Daric fight their growing attraction for one another. ***

Lone Wolf shifter Meredith is trying to make the next ten years of her life pass by quickly. After being caught trying to steal from the New York clan, she’s sentenced to servitude to them for the next decade to make up for her crimes. But, when she gets assigned to guard their prisoner, the handsome but dangerous warlock, Daric, things suddenly become complicated. She knows he’s their enemy, and possibly evil, but she’s having a hard time controlling her attraction to him.

Now that he’s is finally free from the evil mage Stefan, Daric has one single goal: the destruction of his former master. He’ll do anything to kill the mage who ruined his life, even if it means working with the New York clan and their alpha. However, his desire for his beautiful Lycan bodyguard is a distraction, one he can’t afford. The she-wolf is proving to be too alluring, and he’s craving for a taste.

When Meredith’s past comes back to haunt her and she’s left hurting, Daric can’t help but offer his comfort and assistance, especially when all roads lead back to the mages. Will he lose his head and his heart to Meredith, or will she prove to be the one weakness that could destroy him?

Tempted by the Wolf is a full-length (75,000++ words) werewolf paranormal romance with explicit love scenes, naughty language, and shifter suspense action with guaranteed HEA and no cliffhangers!

Although it works as a standalone romance story, this book takes place in the True Mates series. Though not necessary, I recommend you read the rest of the books to understand the world and the main plot.

True Mates Series Reading Order:

Fated Mates (Book 1)
Blood Moon (Book 2)
Romancing the Alpha (Book 3)
Witch’s Mate (Book 4)
Taming the Beast (Book 5)
Tempted by the Wolf (Book 6)

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

I hate to see a great series come to a end and unfortunately this is it for the Fated Mates series. If anyone could end this series with a bang it would be Meredith. When we first met her she was breaking into the Fenrir corporation and Grant, as the New York alpha, had sentenced her to 10 years under his command instead of sending her to the lycan prison. As a lone wolf she was not happy to be stuck in one place for so long, but she would take it over prison.
She became besties with Jade, the super smart lycan scientist who found her fated mate in Taming the Beast, and Lara, a super powerful witch who found her mate in Witch’s Mate, both employed at Fenrir. She is a total smart a**, has no filter on what comes out of her mouth, and I love her!! I want to be besties with her!!!
Daric is a warlock who is working with the evil mage Stefan. He was in on the kidnaping of Cady Vfrost. He was captured and held prisoner at Fenrir, but has proven he isn’t that he isn’t really with Stefan by trying to kill him. He really had no choice but to follow him as he was holding his mother prisoner to get Daric to do his bidding.
I forgot to mention he a chocolate smelling, man bun wearing, hunk of a man too!!!
Meredith and her mouth have been assigned to be Daric’s guard while he works the group to bring down Stefan and his mages once and for all. Revenge is all that he has on his mind, revenge for what Stefan has done to his family, for the years that he has used Daric’s mother to insure his cooperation. However, there is something about the foul mouth lycan female that keeps pulling him to her and takes his mind somewhat away from that.
We are introduced to Meredith’s lone wolf brothers when they come to tell her that their adopted father is dead. Brother’s that are drop dead yummy!!!
What happens next is total craziness!! A traitor within the council, more kidnappings, hilarious bff conversations, unicorn underwear, Disney princesses!!! All the craziness is worth the beautiful ending though.
Oh, and just as I was thinking I will miss these characters and wish that we learned more about Mer’s brothers, there was a lovely surprise that I don’t want to spoil, but it’s AWESOME!!!!!
Thank you Alicia Montgomery for writing a great group of shifters!!!

He reunites with a few old friends and discovers a dark and twisted world he never knew existed behind the closed doors of the Alpha’s house. With the help of old military buddy Jonah he guides the Pride onto the path of a happy and fruitful living.
Fate has other plans when Rook is blindsided with the fact that his true mate had been kept in the clutches of the former Alpha. Locked behind doors and used as an object to be shared rather than respected and revered as all female shifters should be.
Will he be able to cull the evil from the Pride and make it safe enough for Casey to lead without fear? Will he be able to help his mate heal from the hell she has been put through and coax her cat to come out and play?

Goodreads

Beautifully written story with a great message. I could not put this down and read it in one sitting. In Mack, we learn that Rook used to be Casey’s protector and they are reunited within the pack. Casey is now the first Alpha Female and is the Alpha of the Pride in South America. Rook is one of her most trusted friends and he is sent to the Pride to check things out and see exactly how bad things are before Casey goes down. Rook is faced with many evils and keeps uncovering the ways this pride has lived for so long under the rule of Tomas, the previous Alpha and Casey’s father. He finds a harem of women and their cubs that Tomas kept to himself or gave out as favors to others. The way these women and children lived are horrible. And the village….well it is no better. Rook and Casey have their work cut out for them. In the midst of this Rook has found his mate, but Jasmine has seen many bad days and feels she is broken. Their love is blooming and the cats are ready to play! There are many new characters that are introduced and I am looking forward to hearing their stories as well. Love can conquer all, but this is a great twist on the shifters we have come to know.

#Review #MC Raiden’s Choice (A Ravens MC Novel Book 1) by J.L. Leslie

I was raised in a motorcycle club. I saw things no little girl should ever see. Did things no little girl should ever do. That was my life and I loved it. The Ravens taught me about family. Loyalty. Even loss.

Now I live a different life. I’m no longer part of that family. I’m no longer part of the club. I live a life where I pretend to be the person I am. I put on a show for the world and I’m good at it. I’ve perfected it. At least I thought I had. It didn’t take him long to see right through me.

I have a choice to make. Keep playing pretend or finally be who I have always wanted to be.

“When you’re ready to stop hiding who you really are, come find me.”

**Raiden’s Choice is the first book in the Ravens MC series. It is a standalone, full-length novel and is suitable only for mature readers. It includes adult content, adult language, sexual situations, drug abuse, violence, and talk of rape.**

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

I love finding new authors, especially new authors that I can tell my reader friends about and I have found that in J.L. Leslie.
I was immediately sucked into Raiden’s world. Growing up she knew that the Ravens MC was her family, after all her grandfather started it and was the President and her father would take over the spot when she grew up. Her father helped find her calling in the club after the death of her mother.
Fast forward to grown up Raiden and she is a hidden club asset, one that only her father knows about. To the outside world it looks as if she and her father are estranged, if only the world really knew her, she is working a long term plan for the club that she came up with.
Then we have Luka Varelli a motorcycle riding MMA fighting hottie. He hates MC’s and wants nothing to do with them, but he makes a deal with the ADA to infiltrate the Raven’s to help get he’s brother Lincoln, who is in the Rykers MC the Raven’s enemy, out of jail.
What happens next is Luka and Raiden finding out about each other, more importantly they find something they didn’t know they were looking for in each other.
Leslie shows us that women can be tough as nails and still be desirable to a man and she also shows that the right man will help that woman become who she really is and stop hiding her true self.
I was left with that lovely feeling of wanting more. I wanna know if Luka and Lincoln can be brothers again, I wanna know more of Luka’s life before we met him. I wanna know if Raiden’s choice is gonna bite Ravens MC in the a**. I wanna know if they finally bring down the Rykers MC.

I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I’ve been writing since my early twenties, but I couldn’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. She always supported me and writing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. As long as I enjoy it, I’ll continue to do it. I’ve learned already that I can’t please everyone. Not all reviews will be good, not all reviews will be bad. I’m the one that has to be happy with my work.

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. Music is definitely a big influence on my writing. I can hear a song and it can inspire an entire book for me. I listen to it while I’m driving or before I start writing and it keeps me inspired. I like to put music in my books, even if it’s just one song the characters listen to or hear at some point. Sometimes music has gotten me through the really tough times in my life and that’s why it inspires me.

I like to write fast-paced, steamy romance reads. I like for my males to be alpha-males and my heroines to be strong, but both need to have one weakness- each other. I am an avid reader. I absolutely love romance books!
