#WOTR19 – #Review – Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5 by Teresa Gabelman

 

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5

On the run since the murder of her parents, time has come for Leda Kingsman to take her rightful place as pack leader. First she needs to fight for what was stolen from her and her little brother, Sam.

A shifter without a pack, Taz Whelan worked his way into the Lee County Wolves as a tracker. Always the loner, Taz never found anyone he wanted to spend more than five minutes with. That’s until stubborn Leda entered his world.

As Leda leaves the Lee County Wolves under false pretenses, Taz lets her go, a decision that haunts him. When he discovers the true reason and what she has been keeping from them all, nothing will stand in his way as he searches for her before the forbidden secrets she holds takes her from him forever.

 

Goodreads

 

Taz and Leda! One of my favorite couples! This story is full of suspense, drama and intense passion (sexual and non-sexual). This one hits home with me a bit as I see a lot of myself in Leda. She wants to do what is right, she believes it is her fight alone, and doesn’t ask anyone for help. She has become a strong woman and has decided it is time to avenge her family and help her family’s pack. The pack that is rightfully hers. As she goes out on this quest of hers she runs into a couple of familiar faces from her past. In the meantime while she is trying to get a plan together to go after her uncle, Taz has sought out Steve from the VC Warriors to help him find Leda. The dynamic between Taz and Steve is snarky and witty. These two are freaking hilarious! As the story unfolds we find out so much about Leda’s past and what has been recently going on with her family’s pack. We find out the truth about just how terrible and evil her uncle really is. She also finds out that blood doesn’t always mean family. She has Taz and Steve at her back as well as the Lee County Wolves and VC Warriors. I am so incredibly happy that Taz and Leda can address the chemistry between themselves. But Taz has to look out because when everyone else catches wind of him and Leda the guys all come forward to give him a hard time. And the dynamic between Taz and Sam is super heartwarming. By the end of the book Leda really understands what it is to have and be part of a true family. There are so many ups and downs in the story that you can’t help but keep turning the pages. I am looking forward to more of the Lee County Wolves!!

#WOTR19 – #Review – Tray (Hell’s Harlem #2) by J.M. Walker

 

Tray (Hell's Harlem, #2)

 

Despair. Hunger. Pain. Need.
It started the moment she bumped into me.
Ecstasy. Danger. Seduction. Terror.
She was off-limits, but it didn’t stop me from wanting her.
My life was empty. My thoughts were dark. My heart was stone.
Feeling unwanted for most of my life, I didn’t know where I belonged or what my purpose was. He was all I had until she came along and brought out emotions I never knew were possible. She was innocent. Pure. Untouched. She was the daughter of a rival club member, but that didn’t stop us. It only heightened the desire, the passion we felt. We were happy…until someone she trusted made a move that no one saw coming…

 

Goodreads

 

Tray…..where have you been all my life?!?! And Zillah…..My new girl crush!!!!

These two! OMG! They should not be together but when you see something you can’t have it heightens the need that much more. I can’t say that they have a love at first sight type of relationship but more of an insta-attraction/lust that turns to an intense love type of relationship. He is a nomad that hangs with Hell’s Harlem. Tray is a loner and just doesn’t really belong anywhere. He happens upon Zillah when he goes to a shop ran by the president of a rival motorcycle club. Here him and Zillah run into each other and instantly need to be closer. This turns into quite the ordeal as they have to hide their blooming relationship. At the same time Tray is trying to salvage a relationship with his best friend Catch as he used Catch in a way that he can’t really take back. As Tray and Zillah’s relationship intensifies they find out that they have been being watched. Once this realization comes out, the sh*t hits the fan! The twist in this book had my jaw dropped open and gasping trying to get a grip on what was happening! No spoilers here but let me tell you that you won’t believe it until you read it!

 

“I hadn’t known Zillah for twenty-four hours and I couldn’t stop thinking about her. She was young, full of life, and everything I needed in my darkest hours. It didn’t make sense when I never believed in this instant attraction sh*t but there was something about her that I latched on to. And I knew she felt it just the same.”

 

“Tray had been on my mind since I met him the day before. When he touched my cheek. When he told me he wanted to f**k me. When he just looked at me. It was like he could see right into my soul. Right into a part of myself that had been dormant for so long. A part no one had ever revealed before, until him. I may have been a virgin but I knew I wanted more. I wanted him. I wanted everything. I was greedy. Hungry. And I didn’t know what for.”

 

This sinfully sexy book full of hotness and wtf’s will pull you in and keep a hold of you tightly right until the very end. I cannot wait for the next installment in Hell’s Harlem. I didn’t think anyone was going to outdo Greyson, but now I am Team Tray!!!!

#Review – Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy (The Heart Nebula Book 3) by Ava Cuvay

Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy (The Heart Nebula Book 3)

 

Dracula was an upstart nobody from an alien race of bloodsuckers… Kaz just met the planet’s King.

Kazandra Lyon’s failed life sucks. But her vacation to a popular destination-planet sucks on a whole new level when she’s abducted and whisked off to a dark castle mired in twilight. She struggles against the attacks of a bloodthirsty monster and her growing attraction to the sexy and mysterious vampire king. Amidst murdered palace staff, political power struggles, and the king’s blood-searing seduction, has Kaz bitten off too much? Will she return to the unhappy safety of her failed life or stick her neck out and embrace a future with the lusty king who thirsts for her?
Away from his homeworld for far too long, King Rune Lahdunae’s political influence has weakened and his vision for his people is now a relic from a bygone era. He struggles to regain his royal standing as monarch, resurrect his race’s proud heritage, and keep his randy fangs off his beautiful guest. Yet Kazandra’s spirit and humor arouses a hunger in him more primal than the need for her life-giving blood. Can he entice her to remain as his honored guest… and possibly his wife? And can he thwart the relentless killer who is drinking his people dry before Kazandra becomes the next victim?

“Blood King: Revamping the Monarchy” is Book 3 in The Heart Nebula Series. Like it’s interstellar namesake, The Heart Nebula Series is a loosely-connected cluster of stand-alone Romantic Sci-fi stories with sassy heroines, gutsy heroes, passion and adventures set in a galaxy far, far away. In essence, it’s the stuff of stars.

 

Goodreads

 

We have all been at a point in our life where we just need to get away from it all. Kaz decides to go to a popular destination-planet to relax and unwind. This place just sucks! Literally and figuratively. She is at a spring break type of place and she is kidnapped and taken to the other side of the planet that no one goes to just for fun. She is placed in the dungeon and is fed on by a monster. She is finally freed by King Rune and his way of apologizing is to have her spend her vacation at his palace. Rune has been brought back to life after 1000 years of being gone to find that his home has been run into the ground. He has yet to figure out exactly why he has been brought back and is struggling a lot with getting the monarchy back under control, dealing with murders in the palace, falling for Kaz and the fact that he is hiding exactly who he is to her. With all of this going on, Kaz is being herself, everyone loves her, and she is falling in love with Rune. The two of them have a lot of inner conflict within themselves and are so different from the other. But opposites attract and the two of the complement each other so well. The only thing is that they both have to be honest with each other and once the honesty is let out will they be able to be together? There is a ton of craziness happening at the palace when Rune hosts a ball of sorts. There is a death and kidnapping. Kaz finds herself in the middle of another mess and when the bad guy is figured out…..well lets just say oh holy hell because I so didn’t see this coming. I knew there was something fishy going on but when the twist unravels, it’s epic!!!! Blood King pulls you into the story and is the type of story that will constantly have you trying to guess what the hell is going on. And when the bread crumbs finally fell into place I was speechless! The sexy king will have you rooting for him and seeing how Kaz’s wittiness and no nonsense attitude brings him out of his shell will make you fall in love with this story. Well done, Ava Cuvay! Bravo!!!!

Fall in love with Wicked , Bruce and Thorne in…. Wicked *tch bk 1 in the Magic and Mayhem Universe by Teresa Gabelman

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

Shut up!!  This novella cracked me up just as much as the first one.

This story picks up right after the end of the last book.  Wicked and Thorne are happy but Wicked is still feeling a bit insecure about her relationship with Thorne.  She still feels he can do better and is waiting for the other shoe to drop so to speak.

When Wicked FINALLY is ready to admit her intentions to Thorne, she sees something totally wrong and runs away from Thorne.  Good thing our Panther shifter isn’t about to let her go!!

This book we deal with the insecure past from Wicked. We learn about Thorne’s past and family but most importantly we get a surprise for our couple that will be continuing for another story in the future!!

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

Do you wanna read some hot stories with the money going to a great charity ?  If so, buckle up baby because it going a be a bumpy ride, they are Alphas after all.

Now, these are all pretty short novellas, but they do pack a punch.  While some of these author are some of my favorites, some were brand spanking new to me and maybe they have a new fan.

Theardbare by Victoria Blue

Who doesn’t loves second chance romances; I mean come on you get reunited with your one true love, it’s awesome.

Jane is back at her childhood home for her father’s funeral.  Her parents were her foster parents and decided to adopt her.  Her mother was controlling and overbearing and she marred her perfect husband just to get away from her and because he was just the type of man her mother approved of.

Daniel was a boy that her parents fostered, they fell in love and her parents ruined that and made him leave.

This was a lovely second chance story. I wanted to smack Jane upside her head and say “Get with the program!”  Luckily she has some awesome friends in her corner.

Always and Forever by M. Clarke

Maxwell Knight has taken over the CEO position at his father’s company Knight Fashion.  Crystal is a new hire in customer relations at the company.  On Max’s first day they literally run into each other in the hall.

Let me just say where this story started was NOT where I thought it was going to end. I love when you think you.  Know what’s going to happen and the author totally flips the script on you. 

Little Tease by Avery Flynn

Cyn had been in love with her brother’s best friend for years and she’s only been going through the motions in her relationships because she knew she was never gonna get him.  Hunter was everything she wasn’t, smart, successful, and uptight.  

Cyn is by no means dumb, she just lives down to everyone’s expectations of her.  Hunter knows that Cyn is off limits, not only is she is best friend’s little sister the girl is a hot mess.

One midnight boat ride and a storm changes everything for the pair.  

I always love little sister/brother’s bff romances, they are so much fun!! The danger of what will happen when the brother finds out, how long can feelings be fought???!!!! Sometimes hot messes are the best kind of messes and being uptight is nearly as bad as you think.

Lost Seduction by Anissa Garcia

What’s a woman to do when her boyfriend leaves her because she hasn’t given up her V-card yet?  Why hire someone to take it and be drunk when said person arrives!!! Lol

Emerie is helping is friend Lily at a HR retreat and the man she invited into her hotel room to get her card punch, that she thought she hired, she finds out is her bestie’s boss and not  a hired professional.

Sebastian is taken with Emerie and has been since he saw a picture of her in Lily’s office.  This was such a funny a cute little story.  Emerie and Sebastian, after all the funny and v-card nonsense are very much two people who belong together.

Seducing Sophia by Jenna Jacob

Ok, this was one story I was sooooo looking forward to just because Jacob is one of my favorite Authors and has one of my alt time favorite series so reading her was like welcoming a old friend.

In this novella Jacob introduces to a whole new group of characters by way of a pit stop at my favorite place Club Genesis.

Licks of Leather is a chart topping rock group and Sophia is their assistant on this tour.  Burk Jennings is the lead singer of the man and a total man whore. Sophia knows if he ever turned his powers of Seduction on her she would have a heck of a time turning him down, but she’s not a blonde or skinny so she’s not his type.

Man oh man!!!!!!! New friends, old friends, people trying to keep their true desires hidden Jacob brings it all in this little novella. Oh, OH, OH, and she’s introduced us to her new series!!!!!!  It’s a tasty little amuse bouche and I can’t wait for a full meal of these rockers.

Just a Little Mischief by Isabella LaPearl

Brian is a hard man, a professional soldier that has returned to a home that never really cared about him because he was the second son. He’s a man so hard he doesn’t do softness or relationships that he doesn’t pay for.  

Georgia is the oldest of triplets, she’s the responsible one, the less adventurous of the three.

I really hope that we get more of Georgia and Brian down the road!!  Talk about your cliff hangers, man meets girl in a bar, girl gives him someone else’s name, she sneaks out on him after a night of hotness including giving up her V-card, then sneaks out on him while he’’s asleep!!!!

This was awesome!!!!

Picked Up by Mickey Miller

Dagny is having a rough week( it’s only Tuesday) and decides she need a drink so she heads to a bar since she doesn’t have to race home to her daughter.

While she’s there she meets Sam, a handsome man in a suit that looks like he’d be trouble.  They start talking and telling each other about their ex’s.

Everyone needs a little human kindness and if that kindness comes in a hot suited up package even better.  They decide to spend one night together since he will be going back home tomorrow and she has to get back to her daughter.  

Another tricky ending story!!! I loved it!! I definitely will be picking more up from this author.

The Secret Note by Lauren Rowe

Let’s face it crossing a Hemsworth off my to be done list is never gonna happen  however, I can live vicariously through our next heroine Kaylee.

Kaylee is out camping with her college age brother and his school friends, one who is a student from Australia, giving him a secret note she invites Ben into her tent for the night.

Kaylee is the Alpha in this story, not only is she secretly inviting a dude into her tent; he’s Australian, younger that her, and a virgin!!!  

Poor boy gets his mind BLOWN!!!!

7 Yrs later Kaylee gets her mind blown when Ben calls her up and wants to see her!!!

OMG!! This story could totally be a movie and if Chris Hemsworth was in it I’d pay to go see it!!  

Hard As Stone by K.M. Scott

Ethan Stone is the only son of worldwide hotel owner Tristen Stone and artist Nina Stone.  Although he doesn’t work for his father’s company he is expected to fall in line and find a “normal” girl to settle down with instead of bed hopping with the models he photographs.

Summer works for Belle Magazine and is “normal” in every since of the word.  When Ethan meets Summer on a photo shoot he knows he’s found the girl to get his family off his back for a while.

Why is it that men who think they can use a girl to trick his family never realize that it always backfires on them and they end up falling for said girl.  Men really can be silly when it comes to matters of the heart.

Red and White by Sierra Simone

OMG!!!  This one is hot from the get go!!!  Two lovely ladies, Scarlett and Snow, get away for Winter Break.  They two have been slowly coming together through out the semester and now is time for something to happen.

When a big bear looking man comes booming and passing out on them in their cabin, in the middle of a snow storm what can the girls do but help him out.

Liam is the bearded brooding man of every girl’s dream and when he wake up to find himself in a cabin with not one, but two visions of loveliness he can’t believe he’s not dreaming.

Talk about your hot stories, this one might very well be the hottest of the Anthology.  I mean you can’t help but be hot with a threesome!! Think I found another new author, lol!!!

#WOTR2019Attending #Shifter #Review Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Book 5) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5 by [Gabelman, Teresa]

On the run since the murder of her parents, time has come for Leda Kingsman to take her rightful place as pack leader. First she needs to fight for what was stolen from her and her little brother, Sam.

A shifter without a pack, Taz Whelan worked his way into the Lee County Wolves as a tracker. Always the loner, Taz never found anyone he wanted to spend more than five minutes with. That’s until stubborn Leda entered his world.

As Leda leaves the Lee County Wolves under false pretenses, Taz lets her go, a decision that haunts him. When he discovers the true reason and what she has been keeping from them all, nothing will stand in his way as he searches for her before the forbidden secrets she holds takes her from him forever.

Goodreads

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

It’s  Leda’s turn, after 4 books we finally get to hear her story with her words.

When we first met Leda all those books ago, LOL, she was a child hurting from the loss of her parents, now she is a woman ready to right a horrible wrong and save those that were once her pack.

Leaving without telling anyone in the Lee County Pack, including her Alpha, is what she does thinking that she is keeping more people from being harmed by her evil uncle.

Taz is a new pack member, but has only had eyes for Leda since joining and since when he became pack she was with our favorite Invisible funny man Steve she was out of reach.

Now, there is nothing stopping him from having her except that she has left the safety of the pack and is headed straight into danger and he will go after her to insure that she comes home safe.

Man, Teresa gives us so much in Leda’s book.  We have a killer wolf, our favorite Warriors make a appearance, over protective father figures, old friends both good and sort of good, fighting of good versus evil, and the finding of mates.

There was so much packed into it that it seemed like it was a short read, it was so good.

Leda is such a strong girl to have gone through so much, I really think that she is going to be someone that the younger women of the Lee County Pack can look up to.

Taz is a beautiful person not just to look at, but on the inside too.  Leda and Taz together is nothing short of perfect, they really do go together so much better than she and Steve.

Now we have new pack members in the Lee County pack which means MORE STORIES!!!!!!

Forbidden Secrets (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #5 by [Gabelman, Teresa]

On the run since the murder of her parents, time has come for Leda Kingsman to take her rightful place as pack leader. First she needs to fight for what was stolen from her and her little brother, Sam.

A shifter without a pack, Taz Whelan worked his way into the Lee County Wolves as a tracker. Always the loner, Taz never found anyone he wanted to spend more than five minutes with. That’s until stubborn Leda entered his world.

As Leda leaves the Lee County Wolves under false pretenses, Taz lets her go, a decision that haunts him. When he discovers the true reason and what she has been keeping from them all, nothing will stand in his way as he searches for her before the forbidden secrets she holds takes her from him forever.

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

Oh Leda and Taz.  You two have this insane chemistry and you need to just own it!!  Taz, you stubborn wolf but I was so glad to see you go after your mate whether she is ready for you or not!

Leda, girl your family is more than just blood.  The fact you left your Lee County Family behind to avenge your blood family…..ugh but thankfully your new family has your back no matter what.

This book was a great addition to an already action-packed series!!  Leda made a great heroine and Taz stunned me stupid seeing him friend Steve, AKA Leda’s ex!!  But really how can you NOT love Steve!!  LOL!  His minivan is pretty awesome….bahahahahah

So we learn a lot about Leda’s past and the terrors she is running from.  When we meet Jamie and Malcom we learn even more of what has happened to her past pack and what will happen to them if they stay.  Seeing the hurt and truth unfold for Leda about her parents so was hard to hear for me the reader.

I loved how strong Leda became but also how she understood Taz and his need to protect what was his.

OMG Taz and Sam…be still me heart!!   The Brother scene made me tear up.  Bu the scene I loved the most was Taz and Leda’s new family giving him that what for about loving Leda.  I loved seeing him be so strong and taking all that Garrett and Hunter had to dish out.

I am soooooo hoping we see more from the wolves like Jamie and a certain very attentive wolf!!???  Maybe?  Perhaps???

#NetGalleyARC #NewRelease – Consumed (Firefighters #1) by J.R. Ward

Consumed (Firefighters, #1)

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series comes a brand-new novel about arson investigator, Ann Ashburn, who is consumed by her troubled past, her family’s scorched legacy, and her current case: chasing a deadly killer.

Anne Ashburn is a woman consumed…

By her bitter family legacy, by her scorched career as a firefighter, by her obsession with department bad-boy Danny McGuire, and by a new case that pits her against a fiery killer.

Strong-willed Anne was fearless and loved the thrill of fighting fires, pushing herself to be the best. But when one risky decision at a warehouse fire changes her life forever, Anne must reinvent not only her job, but her whole self.

Shattered and demoralized, Anne finds her new career as an arson investigator a pale substitute for the adrenaline-fueled life she left behind. She doesn’t believe she will ever feel that same all-consuming passion for her job again–until she encounters a string of suspicious fires setting her beloved city ablaze.

Danny McGuire is a premiere fireman, best in the county, but in the midst of a personal meltdown. Danny is taking risks like never before and seems to have a death wish until he teams up with Anne to find the fire starter. But Danny may be more than a distraction, and as Anne narrows in on her target, the arsonist begins to target her.

From the creator of the bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood, get ready for a new band of brothers. And a firestorm . . .

Goodreads

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

I was excited to see this new series on Netgalley when I was looking for a book to read.  I am a huge fan of her paranormal series and I also loved her older Jessica Bird books.

Since I knew there was going to be world building with introducing a new series, characters and relationships, I sat back and enjoyed the world she was creating for us.  The world building was a little bit slower then I anticipated but once the story took off, it was blowing me away.  The twists and turns were amazing.  I didn’t see the twists coming at all!!

Anne is one hell of a woman.  I don’t know that I would have done what she does in the beginning of the story that changed her life for good.  She is strong and feisty if not stubborn to a fault when it comes to how she feels for Danny.

Danny is just…yum…can I get that outta the way.  He is strong and alpha but vulnerable when it comes to his feelings for Anne.  They have a chemistry that you can FEEL through the pages throughout the story.   Their banter is this flirty yet the push and pull that left me wanting more…wanting one of them to cross that line from “friends wanting” to “friends with MORE”.

The book has many different stories.  Its Anne and Danny redefining THEM.  Its Anne getting over her life changing event.  Its Danny figuring out HIM after losing Anne.  It’s the arson investigation Anne is trying to figure out.  It’s the firefighters and the fire station.  It’s the politics of the town and lastly its figuring out what you want out of life when you realize you had it all wrong.

The book is very complex with all the relationships and history of the characters.  There is so much comradery and respect for one another all the while everyone is dealing with their own demons.  Some of those demons will come back to cause issues for Danny, Anne and the entire firefighting family of station 499.

I can’t wait for the next book and I REALLY HOPE that Tom is the next book.  Anne’s brother needs some love.  He is carrying to world on his shoulders.  I am even more excited for this series after reading the book.

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

I am so excited to read these smokin’ HOT firemen. I absolutely love JR. Ward’s vampires but I think this series is going to be just as good.  When this book started I was stressed to no end. That first fire, one mistake, and two lives changed. That on mistake left one finding a new career field and the other feeling guilty and responsible.

Anne is one strong willed, hard headed, and courageous woman. These things are what kept her going when she wanted to give up but she fought and came back a stronger woman.  I loved Anne she doesn’t back down and is so ballsy.

Danny, yeah he got my heartrate going.  He is just as strong willed and hard headed as Anne but toss in that he is an Alpha that there is a triple threat.

The chemistry between Anne and Danny is off the charts and we see it from the beginning. They are like magnets when facing opposite directions they do not fit but turn them around and BAM they go right together.  It takes them a while to figure things out as both of them are trying to find themselves after THE fire that changed their lives. I cannot even start to tell you everything that is going on in this book but there is much more than just Danny and Anne.  There are things the other guys in Danny’s fire station that are dealing with some heavy stuff. Plus there is Anne’s brother WOW he has a lot on his shoulders.

The twists that happened in this book blew me away I didn’t see any of them coming.  Let’s just say I was floored so many times. I am so excited for this next book.  I need to find out what is going to happen with the entire group of firefighters not just Danny and Anne’s group but her brother’s too.
