#WOTR18 #Review #Paranormal #Shifters – Refuge, (Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary #2) by Teresa Gabelman

Consumed with a need for revenge, Cole Jackson becomes blind to all he should hold dear. It’s not until vengeance has been carried out that he realizes what he’s almost lost.

After being brutally attacked, Leeza Snow, has kept her head up with her pride intact. What everyone doesn’t see is the shattered heart she conceals, not only from her pack but from the man she’s destined to be with.

While time can heal scars, it will take trust to offer a promise of a happy future.

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

This book picks up right after the end of Sanctuary, Book 1.  The guys have gone after and killed Foster.  Leeza is a broken woman.  She is sad the pack is upset at her for not protecting a younger female of the family but wishes things were different.  When Gemma mentions her rape, Leeza goes ape shit.  Nope sorry people she was not raped, and this untrue fact is why she gets the sad eyes from her pack members.

Leeza is a feisty woman.  When she confronts the brothers, it was my favorite scene.  She makes sure to set them straight on what they as her pack elders have done wrong and how they have let her down plus the memory of her brother, the old pack alpha, down.

Cole feels like a class A Jerk for not listening to Leeza, his mate.  He feels like an idiot for only thinking of his pain at not protecting her and not her pain at being attacked.

The two have some issues to overcome like his over the top alpha behavior at bossing her around.  Leeza is a strong, independent female who wants a partner not a dictator to love.  Cole needs to learn that females have wants and desires besides being cared for on a pedestal.  She wants to be involved in the pack plus earn her way.

I liked the story.  There wasn’t much conflict in this story, but it is set up for the drama to come in the next book.  Looks like Foster’s issues may not be out of the pack’s picture juuuuuuust yet.

#WOTR18 #Review #NewRelease #book #mma #mmafighter #shifter #alpha #brothers #romance #badboy #corner #paranormal #mate #hallowbrothers #josiah #fight #mated #werewolves – Corner, The Hallow Brothers Book 4 by Tricia Andersen


Josiah Hallow carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. Literally. Between keeping his family safe as the head of the Hallows, training his six younger brothers for their individual turns in the MMA cage, and guarding his mother’s amulet from the creatures who want to use it to take control of the world, his sanity is about to break.

Mating with the pure Sarah Merit, an overly-religious school teacher whose body makes every fiber of Josiah’s being stand at attention, could finally push him over the edge. Unfortunately, despite the all-consuming sex that blazes between the pair, it isn’t enough to convince Sarah to live with him so he can protect her, as well.

When Josiah learns the secret Sarah is keeping from him, he makes a deal with the pair of vampires who run the MMA promotion the family fights for in an attempt to save her. But will he be able to save her again when Sarah is kidnapped and taken to Josiah’s grandfather, Atticus, the vicious alpha of a pack of werewolves in Maine? And what will Sarah do when she finds out the sexy corner of the Hallow Brothers is a werewolf, too?

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

My baby daddy and my book!!  YAY!!  I finally get my HEA.  Granted Tricia had to change my name in the book to protect the “innocent” but rest assured its totally my book!!

In Sam’s book we got a bit of a cross over into Joe’s book with Sarah.  We knew she was a teacher and a fighter.  We knew the guys loved seeing the oldest brother fall and fall hard just like they did.

Joe is crazy with a desire and want that he has no understanding of lately.  He is feeling a pang of jealousy when he sees his brothers and their mates. He doesn’t have time for all that mating nonsense since he was trusted to care for the family being the eldest.  However, the fates give you what you need when you least expect it.  When Sarah walks into his life at his aunt’s funeral, he is stunned stupid.

Sarah is good friends his with crazy, religious aunts.  She prays with them and knows all about the deviant nephews they have.  When she sees Joe, she realizes he has been the stars of her naughty dreams lately.  The two have a crazy chemistry in the sheets but seem to clash A LOT out of the sheets.

Sarah is a good girl where as Joe is a cussing angry man….errr….werewolf!  Yes, Joe needs to have a nut punch and yes, his brother serve him up with Karma.  The speech they give him, which was the speech he gave them about a mate, was PRICELESS!!

The couple have A LOT to figure out, but they are still fighting against the vampires AND the other werewolf pack from Maine.  There is a lot of stuff happening to move the story line forward, but the book FLEW.  I was stunned at how it all flows and how happy my heart was.  Joe was a tough nut to crack but once he finally opens, he is a fluffy wolf at my feet…errr…Sarah’s feet.

#Review #Shifter Blackstone Wolf (Blackstone Mountain Book 4) by Alicia Montgomery

Wolf shifter Nathan Caldwell likes things casual when it comes to women, keeping them at arm’s length and never letting them get too close. So, when he meets the one, the mate his animal has chosen, he gets the surprise of his life when she rejects him.

Geologist Dr. Violet Robichaux is focused on her career and science. She keeps a tight reign on her emotions and her tiger, so when her animal chooses the foul-mouthed and rude wolf as her mate, she quickly shuts that down. Her stay in Blackstone is temporary, after all, and she can’t let her tiger or her heart make her decisions. But there’s another reason she can’t stay, one that’s a matter of life and death.

When danger brings them closer together, Violet and Nathan must face the odds to help a friend in need. They risk their lives to do the right thing, but also grow closer. Can Nathan convince Violet they’re meant to be together or will she resist the growing attraction so she can leave Blackstone with her heart intact

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

And another one bites the dust!!! Lol!! I think it’s funny that Montgomery’s men always seem to find their mates when they least expect it, it’s even funnier when the mate basically say “Thanks, but no thanks”.
This is Nathan and Violet’s story.
Nathan Caldwell is the Chief Engineer at Blackstone Mines, Dr. Violet Robichaux is the new temporary geologist at Blackstone Mines.
They both get one whiff of each other and instantly know they are mates. Violet immediately says “ Nope, can’t have a mate right now sorry” and Nathan says “ she doesn’t want me, well I don’t want her either. I have so many women I don’t need a mate”.
OMG, so much funny goes on with the, wanna mate don’t wanna mate stuff that goes on with Nathan and Violet.
Both are stubborn, both really want to mate, however while Violet has a reason why and just can’t share her secrets; Nathan’s reason is just stupid male pride.
While they deal with the to mate or not to mate thing, they also stumble into shifters being kidnapped and used as lab rats.
When they both sit down and really talk together, they find out that they really do want the same thing and that is each other. I can’t wait until the next Blackstone book I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s Luke, that’s lion is gonna be a handful and needs one heck of a mate beside him.

#WOTR2018AttendingAuthor #Review #Shifter Refuge (Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary Book 2) by Teresa Gabelman

Consumed with a need for revenge, Cole Jackson becomes blind to all he should hold dear. It’s not until vengeance has been carried out that he realizes what he’s almost lost.

After being brutally attacked, Leeza Snow, has kept her head up with her pride intact. What everyone doesn’t see is the shattered heart she conceals, not only from her pack but from the man she’s destined to be with.

While time can heal scars, it will take trust to offer a promise of a happy future.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
This is book two of the Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary and it picks up directly where book one ended, however this book is all about Alpha Eric Jackson’s brother Cole.
Leeza Snow is a wolf in Eric’s pack, one who no one has really talked to since another wolf was raped and she was hurt trying to protect her. She feels everyone has stopped talking to her because she failed to protect the younger girl, what she doesn’t realize is that the pack believes she was raped also.
This pack while strong and killed the bad guy, has really done a disservice to Leeza and the young wolf who has left the pack by ignoring them.
Cole is furious because he wasn’t the one to kill the man who hurt Leeza, who btw is his mate and neither have acted on it, and doesn’t really know how to talk to Leeza so he has been avoiding her along with the rest of the pack.
Ok, first off Leeza is a strong woman. Her first thought when she saw what was happening to the younger woman wasn’t about herself but how to protect her, which got her hurt. She knew the other girl needed her afterward and with no regards for herself again stayed with the girl even though she needed to shift to heal herself.
When she realizes what the others believe of her she goes off on the Alpha and the pack, one for not asking what really happened that night and two for the way that the pack treated to woman who had something horrific happen to them.
I love when Cole realizes just how much he screwed up with Leeza. Men are such stupid creatures it makes me wonder why I love them sometimes, then I remember that they kill really big bugs for me sooooo…….
Even after learning the truth and mating he still screws up with her by trying to tell her who she can work for, but she shuts that down quickly and he learns that Leeza is not a mate that will blindly do as she’s told and follow, she’s a mate that will stand beside her man and be a partner.
Refuge show us that you don’t know what really happened with something unless you ask all parties involved, not every Alpha does everything right and can learn from others in his pack, and women are strong as heck and so don’t mess with us.

#NewRelease #Review #BadGirls The Huntress (A Bad Girl Novel) by Theresa Hissong

The Huntress

My life was changed at the age of seventeen. A man took my innocence and turned me into a killer. I spend my days hunting for men just like him. I am paid by the families of the victims to deal out the justice a court of law is too afraid to do.

My hunt for a vicious man leads me right into the heart of Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The club he works for is notorious for its illegal activities. The night I search for him, I am captured by a man even deadlier than my mark.

Jackson Pace owns Club Phoenix, and his employee will be mine once he is found. The owner holds me hostage until he can convince me my task is too deadly without his help. Our time together sets my body and heart in a spiral. His need for me matches his strength. Jackson proves himself when he brings the wrath of hell upon those who have harmed me. He will soon realize I am as deadly as he is, and I will stop at nothing to punish the man I have been hired to kill.

This is who I am…This is what I do.

I am a huntress.

The Bad Girl series is a 2018/2019 collaboration between 13 authors releasing one book a month about kiss-ass women with a penchant for being bad. This is April’s book: The Huntress by Theresa Hissong.

Morgan Rayne is known to those that have need of her as The Huntress. She gives families of abused women the vengeance and closure that they need. Yes, she gets paid but she doesn’t do it for the money, that she donates to women’s shelters every year, she does it so because no woman should be abused, because she is the only one that can make the abusers pay, and because these women that have been abused are in a since her.
Jackson Pace is the owner of the hottest club in New Orleans and is a strong player in the New Orleans underground. He has heard of the huntress but has never had the pleasure or misfortune of meeting her.
Her next case leads her to Jackson’s club, they both are looking for the same man. However Jackson wants her to let him deal with him, but she is in no way about to let that happen.
OMG!! So, Morgan is totally a woman who did not let her past weaken her. Yes, she has some issues from it but she is a strong a** woman and a strong woman needs a strong man. Jackson is a man that hates when a woman is hurt, hates that the woman that her is becoming attracted to is trying to catch a dangerous man, however he also knows how strong she is. I love that rather than try to stop her, Jackson and his men are there when she needs help and he is there when she needs someone to help her see that she doesn’t have stand alone. After all, a Alpha female needs a Alpha male by her side, a partner not someone who tries to lead her.

The women in this series are total awesome and I for one can’t wait until May’s Bad Girl!!!!!

#Review #ARCReviewTeam – Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy #1) by Lara Adrian

Born of Darkness (Hunter Legacy, #1)

q

Midnight Breed – Hunter Legacy Book 1

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian introduces the first novel in a thrilling new vampire romance series set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

As a former assassin in the Hunter program, Asher is one of a small group of Gen One Breed vampires who survived the horrors of a madman’s laboratory and the cruelty of the training that made him one of the most lethal beings in existence. Now, twenty years after his escape from those hellish origins, Asher is a loner whose heart is as cold as his skills are merciless. But when he thwarts a killing under way in the middle of the desert outside Las Vegas, Asher meets a beautiful woman who draws him into a deadly game against powerful enemies—one that will test both his skills and his tarnished honor.

Naomi Fallon is used to getting out of dicey situations. Orphaned as a child after her mother’s murder, she didn’t survive twenty-six years on the street without using up most of her nine lives. But when her latest caper lands her in the Mojave against a Vegas gangster’s henchman, she’s certain her number is up.

Then he appears—immense, brutal, and far from human. Naomi’s never needed anyone’s help, least of all one of the Breed. But after one risk too many, only a man with Asher’s skills can keep her safe. Yet the solitary, seductively handsome vampire has enemies of his own, and a secret that will not only shatter her faith in him but her heart, proving what she’s feared all along—that trust is only an illusion and love may be the sharpest weapon of all.

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

So exciting to see a spin off series from one of my favorite original paranormal books/authors.  Midnight Breed was one of the first series who got me back into reading a few years ago.  I have been a huge fan and so when the spin off ARCS were available, I was so excited!!!

This story takes place 20 year after the Breed have been outted to the humans.  We, as a whole human society, are not so thrilled with our fanged neighbors but we are coexisting.  You don’t need to have read the Midnight Breed but seeing as we see characters from the original series it does make the book that much more exciting.

Asher is a Gen 1 Breed who has done more bad things in his life then he wants to remember or think about.  He just wants to live on his farm and be left alone.  Solitary life is perfect for him.  When he runs into a girl and saves her from a bunch of bad men, he is annoyed he can’t just go on his way.  Why can’t he just leave her there?  WELLL she is a rare human.  She is a Breedmate.  He is honor bound to protect her until The Order can come and take her to a safe place.  WELLLLL, Naomi is not about to let that happen.

When Naomi wakes up to be told she is a special vampire baby making human, ok Asher did not say that but she has it in her head he did…LOL she runs for the hills.  She has vengeance plans to make happen.  She will make her mothers murdered pay and she will not fail in her plan.

Naomi and Asher are the perfect pair to be fated together.  They both have horrors in their past and demons in their present to fight to make the HEA happen.  They both are so interested in the other but they will not fail the “duties” they both have even if that pesky chemistry still gets in the way!!  LOL

I can’t wait for another book!

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #review #FindingTheGreenRoom #RyanAndJess #TheSutterFamily #SurferRomance #FriendsToLovers #PreorderNow #OneClick – Finding the Green Room, The Sutter Family Book 3 by H.D’Agostino

I’ve always known what I was meant to do… surf. I’ve spent practically every day in the water since I was six searching for the green room. This is where I met my best friend, Ryan. We’ve been inseparable for the better part of our lives. He has always ‘just a friend’, and I am ok with that.

As time passed, our friendship evolved into what I thought could be love, only to be tested. A chance to go pro, to find the green room, was right within my grasp. I had a choice to make… Ryan or the future I’d only dreamt about?

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

I have been so ready to read this book.  The story of Jess and Ryan has been in the Sutter series since Catching Raindrops, book 1.

Jess and Ryan are soulmates, but Ryan lets jealousy get in the way of his heart.  Jess lets fear and anger push her away from the person she knows will make her happy.

As far as we can remember it was Jess and Ryan.  They were discovering surfing together along with human sexuality *wiggles eyes* Ryan always wants more, and Jess always pulls back.  She knows she loves Ryan and he her, but they are only kids.

When competition gets in the way and the two break up, Ryan turns into a jerk.  He only cares for what makes him happy and for what can hurt Jess.

Jess tried to leave the beach and memories of Ryan but when she comes back to Ems wedding she is forced to deal with her past and Ryan’s new future.

I loved that Em’s wedding was the wake up call Ryan needed to go and chase his dream….Jess.  He knows this is who he needs to be with and will do anything he can to be with her.  We all know how those Sutter men are when they get a plan in their head….unstoppable.

Jess is done with everything, but she makes Ryan work and work hard at gaining her trust and affections again.  She will not be just another one of many for Ryan’s girls.

When the conflict of the story happens and our couple are put into some trouble, we see then pushing toward and away from each other.  WE see Ryan unwavering in his devotion to Jess while Jess falls apart.  Can Jess finally open he eyes and see that Ryan is the man she needs and will Ryan prove to Jess that she is enough for him???

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review #ReverseHarem – Blood Magic (Ariel Kimber #3) by Mary Martel

Blood Magic (Ariel Kimber #3)

Blood Magic is book 3 in the Ariel Kimber Series.

Ariel Kimber isn’t your average seventeen-year-old girl. She’s recently discovered she’s a witch with magic and is looking to find her place in a brand-new world. Her place in this new world is in a coven with seven guys.

After all of the horrible things she’s been forced to endure, Ariel was looking forward to building her new life with the family she’s found herself a part of and focusing on healing with Dash after what Chucky did to the both of them. After the blood that had been spilled, they all struggle to put those memories and the incident behind them. It’s easier said than done, though.

Quinton is plagued with guilt and the rest of them struggle with the fact that they almost lost one of their brothers and Ariel is left with a permanent reminder of the incident.

New bonds are forged, and just as things are starting to settle down again for Ariel and her coven, the Council of Elders makes it’s first appearance in Ariel’s life. And they don’t plan on going anywhere any time soon.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

Each book blows me away.  Each book gives me answers but then leaves me with even more questions.  Each book we see Ariel bonding with the 7 guys and each book I am dying seeing all the love and affection to grow.  We find out more secrets about ANNABELL….GROWL….we learn about how she took advantage of our guys.  We also see the damage she caused is still a thing on the present.

This book has so much stuff happening and so many secrets spilling yet leaving us wondering CRAP what is Tyson’s dream all about and bigger CRAP what do the council want with our girl.  Side note: Dude the council are some creepy old mo foes. I wanted to say “Put your dicks away because she will not be taking a ride on that saggy thing.  Have you SEEN her 7 guys??  EXACTLY!!”

So this book takes place right after the show down with crazy in love Chucky.  Dash and Ariel are healing, and Quinton is a mess.  He feels so much guilt because he caused the crazy Chucky issue to happen in the first place.  This book I LOVED getting to know Julian and Damien.  Jules is the pensive yet scares the hell outta me guy.  Damien is the hottie who is so outta your reach but seeing him flustered over Ariel was so sweet.

Seeing Quinton and Tyson with our girl so open with affection toward Ariel is awesome.  Seeing Ariel admit to how she is feeling for her guys was so awesome.  She has come a long way to accepting this life she is choosing with our guys.  But my favorite…sigh….the Twin sandwich….sigh.  I have missed my Salt and Pepper storyline so YEAH to getting to hang with them for a bit in the book.

I could totally sit here and just list everything about this book but you need to read it.  I think this book does a great job moving our girl and her boys developing love along.  It also is setting up finding Ariel’s father and the council is up to noooooo good.  Blood magic is being used and I think this will be a very big big big problem for our family in the future.

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

 

 

#Review – CHANCE (Cyn City Cyborgs #1) by Pearl Foxx

CHANCE (Cyn City Cyborgs Book 1)

 

Cyn City is crumbling beneath the weight of water and wealth. Old New York is drowning, while Cyn City is building right over it’s crumbling bones. Ocean swells threaten the massive wall holding back the tides, In the skycity transhumanism means implants and virtual reality, but down in the lower depths where rats and mold rule, cyborgs are a hackjob of nuts and bolts, cynked together for strength, not beauty.

Chance has fought his entire life, first for survival in the streets of Cyn City and later for money and prestige in the underground Cyborg Fight League. After losing the love of his life to Rhumitisin, he never thought he’d find love again. Death closes in fast in the Cyborg Slums, and Chance doesn’t even care until he meets a woman who can see past the metal arm on his left side.

Verity has left behind everything she knows to start a new life in Cyn City. But her Ecovangalit upbringing has left her unprepared for the hard realities of life amongst the Cyborgs. When a dangerous man everyone tells her to stay away from proves to be the only person she can trust, can she lower her walls enough to let him in?

When Verity finds herself in debt to the wrong kind of man who will sell her body as fast as he will sell her soul, Chance is the only one who can clear her ledger, but only if he’ll fight in the Cyborg Fight Circuit again, which means killing for the woman he just might love enough to risk his life for.

Each book in the series is fully stand alone and can be read in any order.

Book One: Chance
Book Two: Enver
More To Be Announced!

Note to Readers: This science fiction cyborg dystopian romance series contains lots of action, alpha males, fierce women, and steamy romance. If you love bad boys who love as hard as they fight, then this series is for you! Guaranteed happily-ever-afters with no cliffhangers.

 

Goodreads

 

Oh holy hawtness! “Temptation, thy name is cyborg”. Chance is that cyborg. Chance was a normal man and sacrificed himself for the woman he loved. But now she is gone. Chance didn’t have a chance for a long time and was very angry. He in turn made a name for himself on the Cyborg Fight Circuit. Since then he has stopped fighting and mainly organizes and collects on the fights. Being that we are in Cyn City there is always someone that runs thinsg and people to be paid off. Verity comes from a commune where the men can take several wives and if they aren’t wanted the women are sent off for other jobs. Verity can’t take it and runs away to Cyn City. She ends up getting a waitress job at the Ball & Joint, also where Chance works. She is spunky and strong but doesn’t know the ins and outs of Cyn City. For some reason Chance can’t keep from watching her. When she pushes off the advances of a handsy drunk cyborg she ends up in a bad situation and Chance comes to the rescue but not until after she takes care of most of it herself. At this point Verity just ends up being a magnet for trouble. She goes to her boss and ends up owing him more than she bargained for. All in the midst of the madness her friend from the commune ends up on her doorstep banged up and bruised up. Chance is their only chance for survival and both of their lives and souls are on the line. Verity can’t imagine that someone like Chance, who everyone told her to stay away from because he is dangerous, would want to be with her. Chance can’t imagine that someone like Verity, so pure and whole, would be able to want Chance and not be turned away from him being a cyborg. This is sort of like a Beauty and the Beast without the hostage type situation, lol! Cyn City is a helluva place and totally deserves everyone’s attention. If you haven’t read Hollywood you should check it out too. It’s the prequel to this story and at the end of Chance we are set up for the next story perfectly. Love me some Cyn City!!!!

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review – Earl of Harrington (Wicked Earls’ Club #12, Bluestockings Defying Rogues 1) by Dawn Brower

Earl of Harrington (Bluestockings Defying Rogues 1)

Jonas Parker, the Earl of Harrington has no desire to marry. He rather enjoys being unencumbered and a wife would complicate things. The Wicked Earls’ Club is his haven and he isn’t ready to give it up for matrimony. His grandfather, the Duke of Southington wants nothing more than to see him wed and return to the fold. For that reason alone he’ll avoid proper ladies and wedding bells.

Lady Marian Lindsay rather likes being a spinster and embraces her bluestocking ways. She studying to be a physician and wants to be a proper doctor. She longs to be taken seriously in the medical field, but her efforts go unnoticed. After careful deliberation she devises a scheme that is foolproof, but she needs the help of one of her father’s friends to make it happen.

Harrington is appalled at Marian’s request and refuses outright; however, she somehow manages to charm him into saying yes. Before he realizes it he’s escorting her to Kent and a house party made of his worst nightmares. Propriety must be met at all costs, because he will not be wed at the end of her expedition–or will he?

Goodreads

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

Jonas and Marian!! What a fun couple to read.  I must admit I was just as taken by all the side characters and revisiting characters from Dawn’s other series that this book FLEW when I read it.

Marian is so strong willed and so NOT your typical Ton chit.  She is not looking for a husband and is quite happy that people already consider her a spinster in the making.

Jonas loves his live as a rake.  He is very happy to spend his time gambling with friends or snuggled with a loose skirted woman then look for love.  He will not make his grandfather happy and find a wife to carry on the Duke’s title.

Jonas and Marian are hilarious with the banter they have. She cannot stand him, or can she?  He loves to flirt just to get under her skin or is it because she is under his skin??

The couple end up spending the weekend at a Garden Picnic when they are confronted with their feelings.  Of course, Jonas makes a move and then breaks Marian’s heart.  Stupid man!  But when Marian is in desperate need of protection, Jones realizes his love for her overrides his fear of marriage, title, and duty!!

I cannot wait to read more from Dawn’s new series.  This book is a series starter as well as part of the Wicked Earl’s Club .  I am dying to see the other ladies find love and the other men as well.
