#WOTR18 – #Review – Karma’s Revenge by Teresa Gabelman

 

Karma's Revenge

 

In a world where human’s and vampires coexist, one woman with only one name and a score to settle has a hefty price on her head. She call’s herself Karma, other’s called her the Slayer of Vampires. Karma didn’t care what she was called as long as she got her revenge.

Axel Walker, also known as the Assassin, was a half-breed so his loyalty lay with the highest bidder. Who had the most money to hand him at the end of a job was the side he was on whether human or vampire. His highest pay day was yet to come and all he had to do was kill the one they call the Slayer of Vampires.

The Slayer and the Assassin become players in a tangled web of deceit. It is Karma and Axel who have to decide whether killing each other is the best plan of action or joining forces to take out those who dare make them pawns in their dangerous games.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

 

Slayer of Vampires plus Assassin equals KARMA! And Karma can be a…..well, I’ll let you fill in the blank, LOL!

 

Sophia is human and has revenge in her blood with the incredible need to avenge her sister’s death. She has been dubbed the Slayer of Vampires as she has slayed several vamps in her search for the one they call Savior. Axel is an Assassin with a special set of skills. He is on the side of the highest bidder and takes the bid to assassinate the Slayer of Vampires. Although, when he is watching the slayer he realizes that she is in fact a woman and rescinds his original acceptance of the job. This is where things go from bad to worse. Sophia has to protect herself and her bestie, Darin (who is a drag queen and is super hilarious!) but Axel is able to find them. Now seeing that they all have hits out on them they have to get over their trust issues and either join the same team or kill each other. As the twists and turns unfold in the story you will be sucked in and won’t be able to put the book down. It is full of sarcasm with snarky comments and come backs and full of angst that will have you fanning yourself before long. This is an amazing world where vampires and humans co-exist but still with prejudices and illegal dealings. The characters are great to get to know with a strong female lead whose strength is kind of dormant but grows exponentially as the action unfolds. This is a fast paced story full of snark and action. A must read!

#NewRelease #Shifters #Wolves The Blackstone She-Wolf (Blackstone Mountain 6) by Alicia Montgomery

Having been burned before, Kate Caldwell has always avoided relationships. That’s why when her wolf tells her that the brooding and serious Petros Thalassa is her mate, she runs in the other direction. Still, she can’t get that sexy Greek wolf out of her head, but she’ll be damned before she submits to him.

Petros Thalassa has longed for a mate of his own, someone to share his lonely life with. While the woman his wolf has chosen seems reluctant, he’s not giving up that easily. He’s searched far and wide for her, and he knows that she’s worth the chase. He’s going to make her his, to cherish and love forever.

When a threat from his past comes back, he must do what he can to protect his intended mate. But Kate is no shrinking flower; when she realizes that being with Petros is something she wants for herself, she vows to be by his side, no matter what.
Can their love survive or will danger tear them apart? Find out by downloading this sexy shifter romance now!

 

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

Are you ready for a angsty shifter, because Kate is definitely angsty!! Lol, however she is also a strong independent woman who does relationships on her own terms and has no need for the mate that she just met.

Petros  Thalasssa has left his home of Lykos and come to Blackstone because he works for the Shifter Protection Agency that now has a office there.  He also hopes to find his mate as she knows that she is not on his island home, he also was okay with leaving because of a mission that went wrong and he thinks it was his fault that his BFF was killed.

Ahhh!!! Kate is sooo funny, I love her and her gal pals and am so happy that the ladies of Blackstone finally get their turn!!  she is totally a modern woman and needs no man mate or not, however that may be because she had a past relationship that was terrible and she refuses to get caught in another one.  She is also hella smart, she is the Lennox Corps systems designer and she designs apps too.

I feel so bad for Petros because all the man wants his a family with his mate and his mate is fighting him tooth and nail about even becoming his mate.  Kate is reallllllllly making him work for it, but like I said she was hurt before and so she’s not doing it out of spite but she trying to protect herself.

So while Kate and Petros are doing their dance there is also a outside threat coming at them and boy is it a twist!!

Montgomery also does a great job writing about shifters and their mates, she also does a wonderful job creating  stimuli outside of what’s going on with the couple.

I’m so glad that there will be more of the Blackstone ladies!

#WOTR – #Review – A Touch of Frost by Terry Maggert

 

A Touch of Frost

Gideon Frost is the last survivor of Ravenwood, an orphanage scheduled for destruction at the hands of a vicious politician. Over the past century, hundreds of children have vanished, lost forever to witches who use their souls as fuel for life everlasting.

On the run and alone, he’ll find help in an unlikely place, when the missing children reach out to him from the land of the dead, asking him for the one thing he can deliver.

Justice.

But Gideon won’t fight alone. Samira Alexander is a sorceress who can bridge the worlds between life and death, and she’ll stand beside him as they fight against the killers who want far more than just Gideon’s silence.

They want his power. They want his soul. But Gideon won’t give up either without a fight, and the witches of Ravenwood are about to learn a painful lesson.

 

Goodreads

 

A Touch of Frost is a super creepy story with plenty of greed and magic to go around. This is an intense story between good and bad, light and dark, and the battles between both. Gideon is the last orphan from Ravenwood and has been hiding since he “escaped”. He has barely been making it and barely getting by while hiding on the grounds of Ravenwood. Then one night, he has been found. But not just by anyone but by a ghost. Actually the ghosts of Ravenwood. He has never belonged to himself and has found a purpose by trying to help the ghosts. Then we get the villains. The ones who kill to continue life as they please, the bad witches. Marina is a witch who is trying to cover up the past of Ravenwood as her mother was the one responsible for it’s demise. As the Society gets involved to help Gideon, the witches are moving forward to get stronger. Again, it’s down to good versus evil and who will come out on top. Overall this is a very intriguing story but it moves slower than I expected. It took me a while to figure out what part Gideon and the Society were going to take in this and exactly how the witch coven would come into play as well. But as the story moved forward it all came out and we are left with a need to want more of this story and to see what direction it is going to go in. I am definitely intrigued and am looking forward to book 2. I need to know more about Gideon’s story and exactly how he is going to play a part in the future installments.

#WOTR – #Review – The True Death by R.K. Gleason

 

The True Death (The True Death Series, #1)

Headed for some well-deserved shore leave, Shepard is gunned down in the streets of Seattle, a victim of “a mugging gone stupid”. He awakens, not in a hospital bed, but in the surreal world of Purgatory.

Within seconds of his arrival, he is saved from a gruesome and painful end, by his new best friend Horace. That’s Quintus Horatius Flaccus, the philosopher, to you Roman history buffs. Horace explains to Shepard the cold, hard rules for surviving in Purgatory. More than just the walls have ears, and he’s not sure how long Shepard will last.

 

Goodreads

 

This is a sensationally twisted roller coaster in Purgatory! I loved every page of this story. It is full of…..IT….of everything! I often found myself laughing out loud, literally, and reading passages to my husband (and he is NOT a reader) and he would laugh along or ask me “what the hell are you reading?”  because he couldn’t believe the things that were coming out of this story (in the best possible way). By the way, I could totally picture The True Death as a movie. When Shephard dies he ends up in Purgatory and Horace finds him and gives him a quick rundown of the rules as to not end in a true death. As with people in the living realm, there are jickholes in Purgatory. Horace, with the help of Matthew, have made it their purpose to help those who end up in Purgatory so they can live in peace and not end up with a true death. Shepard takes on this role when Horace saves him. As the story continues these two just can’t stay out of trouble. They are definitely trouble magnets, haha! They ultimately get their noses put in places that they probably shouldn’t be and the real villain makes himself known. This story gets under your skin! It’s gory, it’s freaking hilarious, and wrong on so many levels, LOL! It’s one of those trainwreck type things that you just can’t get enough of. You have to turn the page and find out what is going to happen and just when you think things can’t get any more screwed up….well, they do. Even in the worst situations Horace and Shepard try to make things light and are still going back and forth with their witty banter. This is an absolute, don’t screw yourself over, must read! I am thankful that I found RK a little late as there are plenty in the series that are out. I can’t wait to see what other types of crazy shenanigans these two are capable of getting into…these trouble magnets will absolutely keep you on your toes! Bravo, RK Gleason! You have a new fan!

#Review #Paranormal #Shifters – Alpha Unleashed (Grizzlies Gone Wild #4) by Kathy Lyons

Alpha Unleashed (Grizzlies Gone Wild Book 4)

Some men aren’t meant to be tamed. Especially if they’re Grizzlies Gone Wild.

YOU CAN’T KEEP A GOOD BEAR DOWN

Alyssa Nelson doesn’t actually believe that Simon Gold is a shape-shifting grizzly bear—until she sees it firsthand. Aaaaand the award for Totally Surprising Changes goes to Simon Gold.But Alyssa doesn’t have time to deal with the fact that her ruggedly hot, long-time secret crush is a shifter . . . not when her brother has turned into one, too.

After ten months in bear form, Simon is struggling. He’s not ready to deal with anyone, let alone the bold and gorgeous Alyssa. Mine, whispers his bear. But all hell has broken loose in the Detroit shifter community, and it’s spreading to humans. Now Simon must face the darkest place of all: where bear and man become one. And the only way he can make it back to his humanity is by finding—and claiming—his mate.

Goodreads

I purchased this book in ebook and paperback formats.

I have loved this series so far and jumped up and down when I saw this new book was out.  I was like WHAT?  How did I miss this?  So off to amazon to make sure I am following Kathy as to not miss another book!!

Our Grizzly Simon has been furry for 10 months when a human snaps …errr..scratch that…shoots him outta his bear form.  Seems she knows him and that he is furry.  We quickly learn Simon and her brother, Vic, are best friends and Vic sent her to get Simon.

Alyssa is freaking out because her brother was right, Simon, her dream guy, is a bear shifter.   She can’t believe it and is also happy to hear this news.  It seems her brother Vic, born human, is also now turning into a bear!!  WHAT!!!  That can’t happen!!

Alyssa and Simon join up to figure out what in the heck is happening.  Simon is dealing with the Grizzly just under his skin dying to get out but also with the fierce and sassy woman next to him.  He has thought Alyssa was amazing before and now that she is NOT takin his alpha crap he is in absolute love with her.

The couple have to deal with an overthrowing of the current alpha, finding out about the Detroit flu,  fighting their feelings and must more drama in the story before they can find their HEA.  I have loved the other books in the series but this one just seemed to be something missing.  I am not sure what but it just seemed to not flow as well as the others???  Maybe it was missing the other characters from the other books???  I don’t know but any way if you want to read an demanding alpha and his not so submissive alpha mate then Alyssa and Simon are a great read for you!!

Claiming Jade by Teresa Gabelman

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

Shut up!!  This book was so funny.  I love the comedy Teresa puts in her books because it’s comedy you might have with a friend in real life.  Her characters are so real that they could BE your friends.

Jade is in a heap of trouble thanks to her little brother running off THE pixie Princess of the paranormal world.  She stumbles into this paranormal agency that Dark Elf Drake works at when everything changes for her and him.

Drake takes on her role as body guard and is all about making this waitress his when the case is over.  Drake soon had to overcome his jealousy plus Jade must stop thinking of others first if this couple is going to stand a chance.  The couple are a riot to read.  The banter when they argue was hilarious!!!!

When the pixie King wants to meet and chat everything soon comes to ahead and Drake must claim Jade a lot sooner then he planned.

The last chapter was so sweet and seeing Drake coo and gush over Jade was perfect!!

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

Jade is a waitress that has a heart of gold and would do anything for her family and friends. She is trying to keep a promise to her dad by taking care of her younger brother. That is until he runs away with a pixie princess and now she finds herself in danger. She goes to Paranormal Protection Service to help find her brother where she finds herself face to face with Drake.

Drake is a Dark Elf that knows there is something special about Jade when she first arrives.  Things are about to change now that Drake is assigned to protect Jade. Drake knows Jade is his but can he get her to stop trying to protect everyone else and let him protect her.

Loved the banter that when on between Jade and Drake. Jade truly had a good sole she would do anything so that others wouldn’t be hurt or suffer.  I loved the humor that was in this book Rhod and Stone were the best. Drake is in protective mode even at the end of the book that door didn’t stand a chance.

#Review #Paranormal #Shifters – Jackson: NAC & The Holly Group (Alpha Team #1) by Chelsea Handcock

Book 1 of 6 Books currently in the series!

Jackson: NAC & The Holly Group (Alpha Team Book 1) by [Handcock, Chelsea]

*** Newly Re-edited Version**

Jackson Thorp believes in tangible facts, military precision and having a good time. Never forming attachments to females and never letting them attach themselves to him. His policy is love em’ and leave em’. It works and he wouldn’t have it any other way. At least that was what the thought. The fates seem to have a different plan and one little red head seems to have blasted the top off his world. He starts to questions everything his sanity, his history and the legends of the past. Could she really be the answer?

Ryleigh Quinn has her life all planned out: work, work and more work. Save as many lives as possible and fill her heart with the good she helped come into the world. She has never been normal and doesn’t even want to be. When a mission brings up memories from her childhood she if forced to confront the one man she thought would never lie to her. The events that follow also forced her to realize that maybe all work and no play isn’t what she really wants out of life. Fate has a way of making a person change their minds. Her fate just happens to come in the form of a delicious, infuriating, dominating bear Shifter. Who would have thought?

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

I am HUGE Shifter fan and when I saw this book pop up as an attending author for a book signing I was attending, I was sold!!  I mean shifters….YUM.  I bought this book and had to wait a month before I had time to read because being a teacher at the end of the school year…yeah no time!!   When I made my list of top priority books this was number 2 on my summer reads knowing I will probably want to read the other 5 ASAP too.

So Jacks *Shiver* what a tall drink of water. AmIRight????  Holy Sweet Baby Jesus the Swagger and the smirks but his cocky arrogance was pretty much the right combo for me.

Ryleigh was the perfect blend of sweet, sassy and feisty for our heroine.  The fact her dad was going to kick Jacks ass made it even that much better!!  LOL   But the fact she could ick ass was even THAT muh more awesome.  I loved seeing her put the guys in their place when they thought she was a weak human.

The story is about some bad people trying to make shifter kids from human and shifter DNA.  Not cool and definitely not ok. Ryleigh’s Alpha Dragon Shifter adoptive father saves her, and help protects her but also helps train her for the war that is most defiantly brewing.

Ryleigh and Jacks meet when her dad asks his men to help her team of highly trained women in saving other females much like her and them.  The chemistry was instant between the two and Jacks is flipping off his rocker.  Naïve and sweet Rye is kinda a hot mess because she has never had a boyfriend so this lust thing was alllll kinds of new to her.

So the book was REALLY slow to get started.  I put it down a few times because I just wasn’t getting into it.  I know with Paranormal you have to world build but I felt a little too much at first.  It was like a meeting between the characters was forever…..like 15 chapters long.  BUT once the meeting was FINALLY adjourned, the book FLEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I was really invested and couldn’t put the book down at all.  I was reading too fast and then like DAMN its over!!!

The books had a lot of secrets, twists, turns and deceits that totally threw me each and every time.  The more we learn about the characters and their pasts, the more invested in the characters I became.  I really don’t know which guy I like the most as of right now.  They all have a spot in my heart but if I have to pick I would say it’s a tie between Jacks and Cash.  Jacks for the above reasons but Cash *Dreamy sigh* for his heartache.

Chelsea Handcock

Come spend a little time with me while you explore the world’s of NAC & The Holly Group and the Ruthless Bastards. The twist and turns will excite and delight. The steamy attraction and unbreakable bonds will make you melt and leave you craving more. Let your imagination go and enter a world where the men are all are hot, strong, and dominant.

 

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Paranormal #Giveaway – Legends: Catori by Maggie Adams

Title: Legends: Catori

Author: Maggie Adams

Series: Legends

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: June 1, 2018

 

It’s hard to keep secrets in a small town…

It’s even harder to keep a secret that could expose not only your family, but an entire species. That’s what Frankie Cavanaugh must do. As the daughter of the leader of the Wisdom Counsel, it’s up to her to step into her father’s shoes until another leader is chosen.

It’s also up to her to continue her lineage within the species.

She wants to do neither. She considers the shifter gene a curse rather than a gift, robbing her of a normal life. Unfortunately, the Counsel doesn’t see it that way and is determined to wed her to their next leader – by force, if necessary.

Tanner Coalson is fresh out of college and ready to tackle whatever life has in store for him. First item on his to-do list is marrying the woman he has loved for years. He knows Frankie will baulk at the notion because she’s fifteen years older and was his childhood sitter. He’s no longer a young boy, but a man who is determined to win her heart, and he is prepared to do just that.

But convincing her they are destined to be together gets much harder when she is kidnapped by an old enemy. In order to survive, Frankie may have to reveal her secret, and Tanner may have to accept what seems impossible, or reject the love of his life.

Talon Cavanaugh stood on the grassy knoll above the cemetery, watching the procession as it wound through the cracked tombstones to the final resting place of the Wisdom Council’s leader, Leonard Cavanaugh. He smiled in satisfaction as the urn was laid into the dirt pit next to where his human wife would someday reside. Soon, he thought, soon all would be in place and he could claim his birthright.

“Son, I know how much you loved your uncle. Are you sure you don’t want to go down and join in the ceremony?” his father asked.

Well, the man he had called ‘father’ for most of his life, inquired. It was only on his mother, Sylvia’s, death bed, that Talon had learned the truth. He was the son of Leonard Cavanaugh, the owl leader of the Wisdom Council, who had died never knowing he had fathered a son. Sylvia had wanted to ensure the bloodline stayed pure when it became apparent that the old fool was planning to wed that woman, Paige, an inferior human. Sylvia had slipped a potion into his wine as the family celebrated her engagement to the leader’s brother, Lester, Talon’s assumed father.  Leonard Cavanaugh had mated with Sylvia that night, the potion making him hallucinate that he was with his beloved Paige.  Sylvia’s plan worked, and she gave birth to Talon, who was a pureblood shifter, keeping the bloodline intact.

Glancing over his shoulder, Talon shook his head in the negative at Lester. He had no need to go down there. He was the true heir to the leadership position of the Council. He knew the death procedure –  one year of grieving for the widow and the family. He looked to Frankie Cavanaugh. She was a beautiful woman, despite her human blood. Her red hair glowed like flames in the sunlight. She was appropriately dressed in black, her cultural brooch, made of gold and the feathers of her father, pinned to her breast. She was crying quietly into a handkerchief, hugging her mother, in solace. It was almost a pity she would have to die, but there could only be one true leader.

And that position would be filled by him.

#CoverReveal – Hour of Darkness, Midnight Breed Hunter Legacy Book 2 by Lara Adrain

New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns with a pulse-pounding new novel in the thrilling Hunter Legacy series of vampire romances set in the darkly seductive Midnight Breed paranormal story world.

Born and raised as an assassin in the notorious Hunter program, Breed vampire Cain has since put his specialized skills to use as a mercenary willing to clean up any problem for a price. Or so he thought. After a job in Las Vegas strains even his dubious code of honor, Cain pulls up stakes and lands in Miami for a much-needed break. All he wants is time away to clear his head and regroup, but then a beautiful young woman is nearly killed in front of his eyes and the ruthless former Hunter becomes the only thing standing between her and a sniper’s bullet.

Marina Moretskova is no stranger to dangerous men. As the niece of a Russian organized crime boss, she’s grown up around killers and criminals. But her uncle wants out now, and he’s enlisted Marina’s help in buying his freedom by delivering valuable intel to a secret contact in exchange for protection. Not even Marina’s bodyguards are aware of her mission, so when an attempt on her life is averted by a handsome, steely-eyed vampire, as grateful as she is for Cain’s intervention, the last thing she needs is the shrewd Breed male nosing around for answers. Cain’s cold, haunted gaze and merciless abilities attest to his brutal nature, yet the rough, solitary Hunter stirs a powerful longing in Marina—a darkly seductive hunger she can neither afford nor resist. With a target on her back and covert enemies closing in from all sides, trust is a risk that can prove deadly . . . and the safest shelter she may find is in the arms of the most lethal man she’ll ever know.

Goodreads

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

First up, if you haven’t read book 1 please do so or you will miss important information as this book picks right up when the last book ended.

So Arsyn is a bit hurt, betrayed and pretty upset that her 4 hotties decided to keep her in the dark about the fact that she is the Conduit to the quad.  If that isn’t enough, this hasn’t happened in like FOREVER so yeah she is none to pleased with the guys.

As the book starts Arsyn is kidnapped by some bad dudes!!  They are Followers of the Dark.  Her hotties are doing all they can to find her.  But I wont lie, Arsyn goes through A LOT when she is kidnapped and some of it might not be reading for everyone….if you get my drift……so go into this with eyes wide open to possible stuff you might not want to read.

The guys fight to get her back but even when she returns there is a lot that needs to be worked through.  Each of the guys provide something for Arsyn..something she needs but the groups as a whole is suffering and needs to figure stuff out in a big way!!

Yes of course this is a cliffy book so be ready to wait to see what happens in the last installment of the series.

K.B. Ladnier is from a small city in Southern Mississippi. She has one daughter and three cats who she claims are stealing her soul in only tiny doses so she won’t notice. She is a cyborg and spends most of her time hiding from her tiny human so she doesn’t have to share her snacks as she reads her favorite books. She hates the beach yet lives only ten minutes away from it and daydreams of mountains and snow. She is married to a hot nerd and loves him dearly even though he hordes cookies and occasionally hides her prosthetic leg from her when she’s mad, so he can get a quick escape. She plans to write as long as people continue loving what she does, otherwise she’s going to say screw it and do her second dream of owning a coffee shop. Though, she may still do both.

Anita Maxwell is from Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia. She has one husband, one son, two dogs, one mean cat, and no kangaroo. She loves to be the center of attention, even when noone else wants her to be. She used to be a ballerina, but now does pole dancing. She is a massive I.T. nerd. She loves planning events. One of her favourite things to do is tell K.B. “No, the main character can’t do that because…”. Her favourite genres to read are Science Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance, Historical, Based on True Stories, and Reverse Harem of course. She has a book she carries with her called “My little book of big ideas”, which is currently a quarter full.
