#Review – Willows in the End: Book One in the Thrilling Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Series (The End Saga – 1) by C.L. Zelle

Willows in the End: Book One in the Thrilling Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Series (The End Saga - 1)

 

They’re all dead.

Now, as my own body decides whether to live or die, I replay my entire life over and over in my mind. No longer do I want it to end, something has changed in me. Somehow, through all of this, I’ve found a will to go on, even if it’s in darkness. For the first time since I’ve been alive, I want to live.

Gideon says my scars will fade with time, but they don’t bother me. As if their absence would change what happened. They’re a badge of honor, reminding me what I went through, how brave I was, and that I made it out. That I can heal. If anything, these scars remind me every day that I’m still alive, and that things can change.

And they will.

My name is Grace Anne Vincent. I took the world, the people in it, for granted. I didn’t realize how precious my life was until someone turned off the lights, stripped it away from me. Until the men with needles came. They stole it all, leaving nothing but monsters, darkness, and death in their wake.

But I’m getting stronger every day. And though Gideon has his dark side, he’s growing stronger, too. We’ll make it together. We’ll create our own light, even if it’s hidden in the darkness.

Something out there beckons me, a desperate cry of a siren from the wreckage. It tells me to survive, to have hope. To love. To make things right again.

And I will.

Holy effing what?!?! It’s an epic journey! This is definitely not what I expected. Mind bending and maddening! Be ready to be wrecked, and I mean this in the best possible way. This is a twisted ride into a new age zombie apocalypse. Grace is our main character and boy, has she had a past. This makes her extremely likeable and relatable. The setting is intense from jump. There are drugs, partying, witchcraft, and zombies…I mean, what more could you ask for? But lets be real for a moment. Grace has experienced hell growing up. She has come to terms and feels she is stronger for it.  Nothing slows down. The story is extremely action packed and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  This is all about having your quality of life leveling up on a permanent f’ing opposite day with some giggly trips down memory lane. Grace is an amazingly flawed character that is continually growing emotionally and mentally. Gideon saved her and they have fallen in love. This author knows how to make the apocalypse romantic and STEAMY! As a matter of fact, all the characters that are introduced into this story are all fighting some sort of demon, their own apocalypse.  I was a mess reading this….but it was totally, absolutely worth it. Don’t let this discourage you. Once I hit this bump in the road the story just got better and better. I felt like I was right there and her shoes. This is an epic page turner and has made it to the top of my favorite reads. I. Can. Not. Wait. for the sequel. Bring it on! I am so ready!  I absolutely could not put this down. So many plot twists!  This series has made it to my top favorite, ever. If you like beautifully flawed characters with intense, action packed, and HAWT plots then you will love this just like I do. This author! SMH….LOL! I AM HOOKED! THIS IS MY ADDICTION!  This series is taking it to the next level.

#WOTR – #Review – Sacrifice of the Raven (The Union Series 4) by Shawn Reilly

 

Sacrifice of the Raven (The Union Series #4)

 

When Ari Lake, guardian to his brother the Keeper of the Union, and a Labrador Retriever in his ani-shift form, wakes from his less than favorable rescue from the Gothi, he soon learns that he is still, to a certain extent, being held captive. This time, however, it is by different captors and for solely different reasons—there is something that they wish for him to see. When his eyes are opened to the revelation of yet another enemy threat rising up to come against his brother, and a potential traitor is revealed under inadvertent conditions, heartbreak automatically ensues. Afterwards, in the shadow of a waning moon, carrying the knowledge that Asher is falling in love, all too quickly, with Elle Ison, Ari sets out to do the one thing he was born to do, and that is to protect his brother anyway he can, even when that means the possibility of sacrificing himself in order to keep Asher alive.

Asher Lake, a wolf in his ani-shift form and Keeper to the body of ani-shifts known as the Union, knows one thing; he wants Elle Ison to be more than just a sealed contract. After learning of potential dangers in the woods of Brokenridge, he sets out to find Elle and his brother Nixon, who have run off in search of answers that could end the Raven’s curse on Asher’s life—a cruse which states that if he falls in love he will die. When he finds Elle, it’s all he can do to convince her how he feels. But time and peace are items that the Lakes know little about. Soon after, not only does he suffer severe physical pain along with the heart wrenching agony of betrayal, he leads his brothers, the Circle, and the Blackbirds into battle against the Gothi. All the while hoping that Elle will accept the fact that he was chosen specifically because the Elder’s and Grant knew that he would always, gladly and wholeheartedly, sacrifice himself for the ones he loves.

 

Goodreads

 

In every sweet moment there always seems to be a knife waiting to cut. This pretty much sums up the entire book, a beautiful disaster. Every time they are making headway or going in the right direction there is another PLOT TWIST! In this story we find more enemies and find some new friends and allies. Asher is breaking down and has confessed he wants Elle. Elle confessed she wants Asher. But now they have different obstacles standing in their way. On top of this Ari is still missing but is safe. He was given the opportunity to see what was really going on and now all the brothers are smack dab in the middle again. A lot of loose ends are brought together in this story with all the proper twists and turns to get you there. The books are all very intense and this one is no different. All of the characters are fighting their own personal demons while having to fight the Gothi. Many different emotions are flying around, along with wraiths! The Lakes are taking back control of the Union and Asher, as the Keeper, is doing what the Keeper is supposed to do, lead. There are traitors and unexpected allies around every corner. Continually keeps you guessing as to what is going to happen next. This was a very exciting and suspenseful installment to the Union Series. A lot of questions get answered but I have so many more questions! I literally finished this book and started book 5 right away, which has been incredible so far. This is a series that is completely consuming. I go to bed thinking of the characters and wake up ready to find out what happens next. I am still rooting for Asher and Elle in the end! I’m biting my nails trying to figure out if they will get their happily ever after….oh and a few others too!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired schoolteacher 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 that 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, my stepfather 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.

#WOTR – #Review – Forbidden Temptation (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #4 by Teresa Gabelman

 

Forbidden Temptation (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #4

 

Taking on new recruits has always been tricky business for Dell Farris, head protector of the Lee County Wolves. Add in the knowledge that his mate is one of them makes things even more complicated. He knows she has demons to fight, but he’s determined to take charge of that battle. Nothing and no one will ever hurt her again.

Roslyn “Ross” Starr has secrets that she plans to take to the grave. But fearing putting innocents in danger, she makes a decision that could end everything. In a split second, Ross’s life changes, and all because of a handsome shifter who makes her want to try for the life she deserves.

As Dell unlocks the secrets of Roslyn’s past it is clear to all but him that she is a forbidden temptation.

 

Goodreads

 

Ok, so I have to admit that this is the first book of Teresa Gabelman’s that I have read. Oh holy hell, why have I not read them?! That is the question that keeps going through my head right now. Since I haven’t read the others this is safe to say that this can be read as a standalone. I never found myself trying to figure out something from the past characters. I could tell they were all interwoven, as they should be, but Dell and Roslyn….holy hotness!  The story is full and complete.

 

Dell is the quiet type but he is also the type to have Alpha tendencies and to get stuff done. Roslyn is a new recruit to the pack but she has secrets, like huge secrets. She is running but no one knows from what. Dell literally saves her and at this point he cannot deny the pull of his mate. Roslyn feels it too but her emotions are a hot mess. As these two become closer she is faced with her past and makes a hard decision by trying to leave the pack. Here is where we get to see the real side of Dell and Roslyn. As she is on the brink of disaster and about to die, yet again, the Lee County wolves step up to help her.

 

The story sucked me in right from the absolute beginning. Emotions are intense and the action and sexy time are even better!  It’s the perfect combination for a badass story. As I said at the beginning this is my first Teresa Gableman book but it is definitely not the last!

Goodreads

 

MORE Please! I am loving Ryder and Riley!! Right from jump we are smack in the middle of Riley escaping from some bad people. Right from there, the author had me hooked. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to put this book down and the author did not disappoint. Riley is full of sass, sarcasm, and wit. It’s the perfect combination for a strong female lead. But she soon has met her match when she meets Ryder…. Or has Ryder met his match with Riley? Ryder is more of a loner but has been around the block a time or two, just saying. When they collide sparks fly! Whew! I want to tell you more but I just can’t. And it’s killing me! There is never a dull moment with the characters or the story. The right amount of action, sarcasm, and sexy time! The bad pat about the story…is that it is over, lol! I do hope that we see more of this duo! Overall I recommend this book to everyone. Someone that wants some drama, love, sex, action, shifters…. here is something for everyone!

Embark upon the final journey in the Shifters of Kladuu series with one fierce Draqon female and the mysterious legend of a Draqon male rumored to be so powerful he could save the entire planet from war.

Kinyi has trained her entire life to be the strongest, most lethal rider on Kladuu. She’s ready to soar through the skies on the back of a shifted Draqon, which is a problem considering all the unmated males are intimidated by her and she refuses to be bound to a man who isn’t her equal. When she’s sent to a crumbling Earth to track down the White Horn and bring him home to fight, she thinks it’s a fool’s errand. Until she comes face to face with the legend himself.

Tane spends his life running from the myth of the White Horn. On Earth, he’s known as Tane, the manager of an underground cyborg fight club. But when a beautiful Draqon female from the other side of the universe hunts him down and demands he save Kladuu from a war with the humans, he must confront his true nature to save his people.

When war comes to Kladuu, it will take all of the clans uniting against the militant humans to save their planet. For Tane and Kinyi, is fate leading them to a perfect happily ever after or into the fires of their final battle and ultimate sacrifice?

Goodreads

 

Oh holy hotness! Whew! Ask no questions, tell no lies. Kinyi is one fierce Draqon female who I loved to hate. When I first met her I wanted to throat punch her but as I got to know her in the Draqon’s Hero I found out that she is just misunderstood. She is sent to Earth to find the White Horn. As she is scouring the worst areas she locates him in Cyn City. The problem is that Tane, aka White Horn, has no want or desire to go back to Kladuu. He has his reasons but Kinyi is relentless. Tane runs an underground fight club and Kinyi ends up being in the middle trying to prove herself to Tane. All hell breaks loose and they find out that Gideon is missing. Kinyi just knows that he is on Kladuu and know she must find a way back home. Tane feels an undeniable pull to Kinyi and vows to help her get home but has no plans on going with. Until….. well I can’t give it away but he does go home. Both of these characters are incredibly strong and independent. Both have their secrets and fears. But when these unravel it will blow your mind! The story starts in gritty Cyn City and ends on Kladuu but there is never a dull moment with these two. No matter how much I didn’t like Kinyi at first, she made it up to me with Tane. This is my favorite of the series. It is bittersweet as I don’t want the series to end but it is set up beautifully for the next series in Cyn City! I am hoping we might see some of the Kladuu characters in Cyn City, but only time will tell. Bravo, Pearl! You rocked this!

#Review – Lycan Her Mate (Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle World) by Bella Roccaforte

Lycan Her Mate (Paranormal Dating Agency Kindle Worlds Novella; A Wolf's Hunger Book 14)

 

Emma has always been shy and only attracts the worst type of men. With her best friend, Jenn, finding love and moving to another state, Emma feels very lonely. Maybe she needs professional help, and Gerri Wilder’s Paranormal Dating Agency is just what the dr. orders for a broken heart. Gerri has helped Jenn find her future husband after all, why can’t she work her magic for Emma as well?

Zane is a half-breed wolf with a bad reputation. His father was the Alpha of Duskmoon pack until he was challenged and killed by the sheriff, Ryland Breakwater. Believing the pack would never accept a half-breed like Zane as Alpha, he’s never challenged Ryland. As an outcast in his own pack he’s never searched for love. He just tries to stay out of trouble, even though trouble always finds him.

But the Hunger strikes and all bets are off. Zane has his sights set on Ryland and restoring the good name of his pack.

With a good woman by his side, will Zane be able to win the favor of the pack and strike Ryland down? Or will he allow the Hunger to consume him, dragging him down deeper into darkness?

 

Goodreads

 

 

“Fate is far more powerful than an angry wolf.” Soooooo, where do I start? Zane and Emma are opposites but are exactly alike in that they always attract trouble, lol! Emma meets Zane kind of by mistake when Zane makes sure she is safe after a small altercation at the bar. But Zane is a perfect gentleman and makes sure she gets in her car and leaves. This is where things start to get fun. Neither of them can stop thinking about themselves. Zane has no idea what’s going on. Emma’s friend leaves her the Paranormal Dating Agency card (that just doesn’t disappear) so Emma gives in to give it a try. These two crash together and stir it up! We get just the right amount of Alpha male, Bada** female, action and sexy time (wags eyebrows)! This is an easy quick read and just the right thing to get your blood pumping!

#WOTR – #Review – Halfway Drowned (Halfway Witchy #4) by Terry Maggert

 

Halfway Drowned (Halfway Witchy, #4)

 

Something is wrong with Carlie.

A magical storm. An ancient shipwreck. A hidden evil.
All three are tied together as Carlie must defend Wulfric against his past, which emerges after a raging storm tears across Halfway Lake.
When government agents descend on Halfway to investigate the mysterious shipwreck, Carlie discovers that all is not as it seems.

A thousand years old, the Viking ship holds bones. And secrets.
Not everyone went down with the ship. There were survivors, but they might be less than human. They cross paths with Carlie in a showdown that will bring her own secrets to light, for saving Wulfric came with a cost. Now, it’s time for her to pay.

Dive in with Carlie as she fights to save the one person she can’t lose.
Herself.

 

Goodreads

 

“The time for pure magic was past. It was time to bring out my b***hcraft.” Yep, this is Carlie! She is our resident witch of Halfway that has an incredible talent for waffles and has an amazing love for Vikings (hey Wulfric!).

If you have followed this series you know that Carlie is our resident witch of Halfway and she does not take kindly to “visitors” (the things that go bump in the night) wreaking havoc on her beloved town. Out of the blue a Viking ship surfaces in the lake and this brings all the visitors to gawk and the government to come investigate. Things aren’t always what they seem and Carlie is a pro at this stuff. However, this ship hits home for Wulfric and brings up his very distant past. While they are both trying to work through the craziness that this ship has brought on they are both battling other demons. Wulfric is dealing with his past and Carlie has to deal with her future. Carlie is a very strong and resilient character but is very down to earth. And her love for her town and family is ginormous! Include the craziness that they are dealing with and her snarky remarks and this story will have you laughing out loud and the next minute having you deep in thought trying to figure out the next move. This is one of those stories that will suck you in from the beginning and keep a strong witchy hold on you until the very end.

At the risk of giving any spoilers I am going to give you a couple of my favorite lines:

My words were lost in a rumble of thunder that shook the air in my chest. Raindrops the size of baked potatoes slapped against my skin in a constant, frigid pounding, driven by the vicious wind. The howling rain felt like a car wash run by sadistic gods, determined to scour off my skin.

I am many things, but my humanity and witchcraft would coil around each other like warring serpents until dawn, when I would ask and answer a power far greater than my own soul. The answer I was granted would determine nothing less important than the rest of my life, but the need to ask the question was overpowering. I could not go on without knowing, and for Wulfric’s sake – and my own – I would not be denied.

In other words, you must read this! P.S. Be sure to check all the covers out. They are some of my favorite!

#WOTR – #Review – Rust (King’s Harlots MC #6) by JM Walker

 

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

His demons are loud.
Held captive within his mind, he does everything he can to forget his life before Vice-One.
As one of the newest recruits, his main goal is to have his “brothers” trust him and he’ll do just about anything to make that happen. Until one passionate night with Creena Chan, the military was all he had.

She’s hiding from her past.
A trained professional, she keeps that part of her life to herself. The darkness weighs heavily on her chest, mixing with the beats of her heart, caused by the one man she tries to ignore. Vincent Stone is nothing like she imagined. Months of flirting lead to an explosion she never saw coming.

Only when Creena and Stone’s limits are tested, do they realize exactly what they will do to find that peace their family and friends deserve.

 

Goodreads

 

“Love and pain. It was a toxic combination.” I am going to miss the King’s Harlots! This is not my normal genre but it is an epic mix of awesomeness! The series has gone from really good to oh my gawd amazing! Every book seems to get better and better. It has been a non-stop love/hate relationship that most definitely keeps you wanting more. Rust is no different. Although, I must say that Creena’s and Stone’s stories may be my favorite  . One thing that this series has given us is the raw and gritty. Well folks, it absolutely raw and gritty in the best possible way. I want to talk about the story but I know I will give away spoilers so that’s gonna be a no-no this time. They are both holding secrets, like major secrets that are gonna shake the Harlot’s and Vice One’s worlds. The back story of these two is intense. When Creena and Stone crash together things explode! It’s HAWT!!! It’s ACTION packed! It’s TWISTED!! It’s OVER!! (wipes tears from face).

In an effort to not spoil the story I will give you a couple lines that were my fave!

Sex with Stone came at a price. It cost me my sanity because all I could think about was him. My thirst for him was never quenched. It only made it worse. I could drink him up, feast on his body, and never be satisfied.

We crave that darkness but even after accepting its fate, it can still haunt us for years. Maybe even the rest of our lives. Sometimes people take advantage of that. Hire us to do their dirty work because they’re scared to do it themselves.

This is an incredible series with an equally incredible ending. Bravo, JM Walker! Get it girl!

#Review – The Draqon’s Brat (Shifters Of Kladuu #5) by Pearl Foxx

The Draqon's Brat (Shifters Of Kladuu, #5)

 

She’s the spoiled daughter of the evilest man in the universe, but this Draqon refuses to let his feelings get in the way of his mission: assassinating her father.

Veronica Gideon has grown up a proper debutante. Intergalactic parties, socialite friends, and all the trappings of wealth and power. Attitude and privilege are her way of life until she’s forced to confront the underbelly of her father’s leadership by her charismatic, sexy guard with his own secrets–secrets that could get her killed.

Maxsym defied his Draqon hive leader to infiltrate the Zynthar International Space Station and kill Commander Gideon. But one thing threatens to derail his rogue mission, and she’s as beautiful as she is infuriating. Far from the safety of Kladuu and his hive, Maxsym must navigate a space station full of dangerous humans and his unexpected feelings for the bratty human woman with more depth than he’d expected.

Will the two of them save Kladuu, or will their differences rip them apart?

I cannot get enough of The Shifter’s of Kladuu series! This is the 5th book and although these can be read as standalones I highly recommend reading them in order as many of the characters come back throughout the series and there is a better understanding of exactly what the back story is on each one. The Draqon’s Brat is the story of Maxsym, the Draqon’s Hive Master, and Veronica Gideon, the spoiled debutant daughter of Captain Gideon of the Zynthar Space Station. Maxsym is a playboy from the hive and has defied orders and has infiltrated the Zynthar Space Station in hopes of assassinating Captain Gideon due to his dealings with the flesh trade (trafficking). Maxsym has been appointed the guard over Veronica and is hoping this will get him closer to her father, Gideon. Right from jump Maxsym and Veronica absolutely hate each other. Well, they really love to hate each other, LOL! There is an intense push and pull between the two. They are both hard headed and stubborn and the banter between each other is both fun to read as well as frustrating. At times you want to shake them both and tell them to get on with it! But this frustration is incredibly well written and necessary for the story. Veronica and Maxsym both uncover more secrets and cover ups that Captain Gideon is part of. They both need to decide if they are worth it for each other or if they need to part ways due to the different worlds they are from. The story is one of those that you will sit and read in one sitting and not even realize the amount of time that has gone by. Trust me, you need this series in your life!

#WOTR18 #Review #MC #Military Rust (King’s Harlots 6) by JM Walker

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

His demons are loud.
Held captive within his mind, he does everything he can to forget his life before Vice-One.
As one of the newest recruits, his main goal is to have his “brothers” trust him and he’ll do just about anything to make that happen. Until one passionate night with Creena Chan, the military was all he had.

She’s hiding from her past.
A trained professional, she keeps that part of her life to herself. The darkness weighs heavily on her chest, mixing with the beats of her heart, caused by the one man she tries to ignore. Vincent Stone is nothing like she imagined. Months of flirting lead to an explosion she never saw coming.

Only when Creena and Stone’s limits are tested, do they realize exactly what they will do to find that peace their family and friends deserve

 

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

So, we have come to the end of the King’s Harlots Series, so sad. This series has had it all, a cool women’s mc, hot alpha military guy, a scary AF human trafficking ring, and lets not forget the suspense of finding out just who is behind said ring. Now, onto Rust!!
All the men from Vice-One are Uber alpha, my favorite so far has been Coby Porter from Rude, but now I want to be the meat in a Coby Porter and Vincent Stone sandwich!!!!!!
Holy moly did Walker have me hot to trot with Stone. He’s relatively new to the Vice-One team, but just like the rest of them he’s military, alpha, and he’s also got secrets.
Creena Chan; member of King’s Harlots, nurse, and a lady with one hell of a secret of her own.
Creena and Stone have always been flirty friends, but have never crossed that line until they wake up in bed together hungover and that my friends is the start of a HOT, steamy, complicated relationship.
Walker wraps up this series in a neat little bow, but we all know that while bows look neat, making them takes lots of twist and turns and things that come out of nowhere. What I mean is I never saw the secrets and the players that came out in this book coming and Walker did a great job of between keeping me on edge with suspense and keeping me on edge with the super hot scenes with Stone and Creena.
Even though the series has ended I would love to catch a glimpse of the gang in the future.
