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.

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!

#NewRelease #Review #Shifter Eternal Mourning (Talon Pack #7) by Carrie Ann Ryan

In the seventh book of the Talon Pack series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan, a Healer is forced to come to grips with the idea that he can’t save everyone…including the woman he loves.

Walker Brentwood vowed to the moon goddess that he’d protect his Pack and Heal with every last ounce of his power. He’s watched his siblings and cousin battle the worst circumstances to find love and is now afraid that the one woman who could be his might not have much time left. The rules of mating have changed, and Walker will do what he has to in order to protect the bonds that have eluded him for so long.

Aimee Reagan knows there’s something wrong with her. She’s known since the first time she found out shifters were real and magic existed. When the Talon Pack’s enemy sets his sights on her, her battle to survive becomes even harder.

Walker and Aimee must turn to each other when the powers around them change and the paths that had been laid before them are no longer clear. But when their passion threatens a curse far older than anyone dreamed, they’ll only have one chance to save something worth more than a mating bond. Their future.

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

I swear this poor pack can’t catch a break they always are fighting against something, whether it be tyranny in their own pack, anti shifter groups, and now a power hungry alpha of another pack.
The fighting however is what makes them strong and the fighting with a mate at their side has made that mated pair even stronger, this time it’s the Healer and the human fight side by side.
Walker is the Talon pack’s healer and since the pack’s magic has made the mating bonds all wonky, he has made it his mission to try and find a way to fix it.
Aimee is a human that had no clue that shifters excited until the unveiling and that her friend was one until she shifter in front of her eyes. These two are thrown together because her friend has mated into his family, but they are also attracted to each other.
Walker doesn’t know if his attracted to her because she could be a possible mate or because he is. For Aimee the attraction is real, but since she is dying, and no one can figure out why, she is trying to stay away.
Can I just say, Wow! Know what all this pack has gone through and what they are going through in this book is crazy!!!!
Aimee is one hella of a strong woman to be at death’s door and still fight the way she is and Walker is with her every step of the way. I love how he is trying to find a way to save her even though the human’s can’t find out what is wrong with her and still trying to find a way to correct the wonky mating bonds.
When these guys finally stop fighting their attraction and come together it’s magic, maybe even healing too.
Ryan has done a awesome job writing a nail biting shifter story full of action and love once again and I can’t wait for the the story from the Talon Pack.

Ross is a girl with a past, one so tragic that she would rather be gone from this Earth than put her new pack in any danger that may come.
Dell is……. Well Dell is that strong and silent male and it’s always the quiet ones that you have to watch out for and I mean that in such a delicious way.
Dell can fight the pull of Roslyn as his mate no more, especially now that he knows how much pain she is hiding. There is lots going on in this book; change for the pack, a couple coming together, a horrible past coming back, Dell kicking a$$, and Leda leaving.
I love that we get to see all of our favorite couples from the Lee County Pack. Not only that, we get to hear a glimpse of our favorite funny VC Warrior and Leda’s bestie Steve.
I also am on pins and needles to see how Leda is going to deal with who comes after her!!
I know, I know my review is so vague, but you gotta read it to find out I can’t give all of Gabelman’s secrets away!!!

#Review #Christmas #Shifter Holly Jolly Lycan Christmas ( A True Mates Stand-alone) by Alicia Montgomery

Despite becoming one of the most famous celebrity chefs in New York, Dante Muccino’s wolf is restless. After watching all his friends and family pair up with their True Mates, the animal inside him wants what they have too. Children. Family. And a woman to call his own. When he runs into rival Holly Taylor, his wolf is intrigued, but the frosty chef won’t give him the time of day.

Holly Taylor’s life felt like a big juggling act. All she wants to do is hide out in the kitchen and create fabulous and delicious dishes, and earn the respect of her peers. But life has thrown her extra things to juggle, and she didn’t need one more, particularly in the form of Dante Muccino. But there’s something about the easygoing chef that’s melting the icy walls she spent years to build. He’s a distraction she can’t afford, and if she’s not careful, she may lose more than her heart to the handsome chef.

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

It’s that time of year again. Time for family gatherings, Christmas movies on tv, Christmas music on the radio, Santa in the malls, and children trying to be oh so good to stay on the nice list. The one thing that’s good to have all year round is SHIFTERS!!!!!!
Alicia Montgomery takes us back to the True Mates world with Dante Muccino.
We’ve met Dante before, his sister is the Lupa of New Jersey and his brother in law the Alpha of New York.
Dante is a celebrity chef, now that his family’s restaurant has taken off. He has had his pick of women, but now having watched his family and friends find their true mates he realizes that there’s more out there the short term relationships he has had, and he’s ready for it.
Holly Taylor is the Head Chef at the new French Restaurant across the street from Muccino’s. To the staff and the people she went to culinary school with she is known as the Ice Queen. A lot has changed in her life in the last year, her brother and sister in law were murdered, she took custody of their daughter so she won’t be put into foster care, she left her job in Paris so that she could bring her up in the states, and helped to start this new restaurant. When she and Dante first meet they get off on the wrong foot and it takes awhile to get back on the right one. However, when they first meet there is also a spark of attraction, but Holly has no time for that between the restaurant and Hannah she has no time for a man in her life.
What happens next is a family finding their way to each other, Russian mobsters, Holly finding out that lycans exist, and Christmas.
Christmas is truly a magical time to bring a True Mate couple together.
Montgomery has done a excellent job at writing a Christmas love story. I have a feeling we have seen the last of these couples, but what a wonderful way to see them go.

#Review – SHIFT (Mackenzie Grey #1) by Karina Espinosa

SHIFT (Mackenzie Grey: Origins, #1)

 

It’s hard enough being an undergraduate student, an intern at Downtown Manhattan’s police station, and a bouncer at a local bar. Add her now ex-boyfriend who recently dumped her for the school’s resident bimbo—oh, and she’s a werewolf.
Mackenzie Grey meets her match when she is kidnapped by the Brooklyn Pack and tossed between Sebastian and Jonah—the Alpha and the Beta. Being a lone-wolf in the city is dangerous, and now that the Pack has found her, so can every supernatural being in the Tri-State area. And not even her sarcastic, smart mouth can get her out of this.
When a string of kidnappings involves Mackenzie in supernatural politics, she questions her new acquaintances and finds unlikely allies. Can she escape Pack law and keep her freedom—or will she be condemned to an unwanted path?

 

Goodreads

 

 

 

This is such a great book! A kickass heroine who is bending all the rules and showing she can play with the big boys! I actually won this book during a book release party. I have never heard of this author but I do LOVE a good shifter book. I was a little put off at the first sentence because it starts with how her ex-boyfriend left her for a bimbo. I didn’t want the book to be a bunch of high school type stuff but I was proven wrong and very fast. Mackenzie is this college student who is a werewolf. She is not sure how it happened and has no one to talk with about this change. She has an amazing friend, Amy, who reminds me of the saying “dynamite comes in small packages”. A trio of werewolves doesn’t make her quiver. Mackenzie has a strength and confidence about her that gets her a job as a bouncer at a nightclub. She runs into the local pack and this becomes trouble. She is still trying to wrap her head around the whole mess while attempting to get answers from them about her. She is having an extremely difficult time with the pack as she is unwilling to bend to their practices and rules. There are many tough decisions, things that could scar her for life, but she takes it in stride as she understands that sometimes you have to break the rules. She is still an extremely independent woman but has to lean on someone when things continue to go awry with her ex and the kidnappings that are now involving her. This is an extremely witty and cunning story that is full of badassery. I got absolutely sucked in and could not stop until the end and even then I needed more. I will be continuing this journey of Mackenzie’s. It’s absolutely captivating. Kudos to the author!

Lone Wolf Connor is in a desperate situation. Ever since the death of his mentor, the animal inside won’t stop ripping him apart and trying to take over. There’s only one way to stop Lycans who’ve lost control: death. Before that happens, he’s going to seek revenge on the very people who have turned him into a monster.

Of the three Lone Wolf brothers, Connor is who I’ve been waiting for. There has been something that has drawn me into him since he first stepped onto the page in his sister’s book. Something beyond the beard, the brooding, and the muscles.
I knew the story of his youth was gonna be rough, but I had no idea just how rough.
Evie left her home to follow her dreams of stardom, she’s working part time as a secretary at Lone Wolf Security to help herself financially. She’s been there since the beginning and has been attracted to Connor since then.
Connor has been making sure that Evie is safe since someone was trying to kill her roommate and Owen’s fiancée Selena, he just never stopped after things were settled. There is something about her that calls to him, calms him even though he knows that he should stay away from h since his wolf is so unstable.
There is so much going on in this book!! Evie gets to work on Broadway, but with a crazy pop star that has a stalker so Creed Security is called in to help with keep the spoiled pop star safe. Well they are only called in after Connor, who’s only at the theater to watch Evie, keeps a light from falling on the pop star’s head.
Connor is trying to get revenge on the people from his childhood, a childhood full of horrors that no child should have to go through.
Evie and Connor start dating!!!! Connor finds his birth family!!!! There’s just sooooo much going on!!!!
Montgomery has done such a great job writing about how these brothers became the Lone Wolves that they are. Connor’s story is by far my favorite of the trilogy.
I am sad to see the end of the Lone Wolf family, they will be missed. If you have not read any of these books you are missing out.

#ComingSoon #Review #Shifter Destiny Disgraced (Talon Pack Book 6) by Carrie Ann Ryan

The Talon Pack continues with a new twist to the Packs and a revelation no one was prepared for.

Mitchell Brentwood is aware that others think he’s the harsh taskmaster Beta trying to keep his Pack alive, but they only see what he wants them to know. He’d once thought he had his path laid out before him, but when his future was violently ripped away, he vowed he’d never let anyone close again—especially not a young wolf from a traitorous Pack.

Dawn Levin may be younger than the war that destroyed her people, but she knows she must still pay for their sins. She’s ready to find her way in this new world where wolves and humans blend as one, but first, she needs to fight her attraction to the dark wolf that stands in her way.

While the two struggle with their feelings and burning attraction for each other, they can’t ignore the world that shakes beneath their feet. There is a new enemy on the horizon, one with revenge and the unknown on their minds. An adversary that might be closer than they realize.

 

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

It’s been a year since the end of the war and the Unveiling things should be good for the Talon Pack, but something new is coming and it has all the packs on edge.
Mitchell is the Talon’s beta, he’s one yummy but grumpy wolf. He’s been keeping a secret from his family for years, nothing that could hurt them mind you, but it’s a secret from his family and it’s a doozy.
Dawn is a wolf from the Central pack, well they aren’t a real pack yet. She is a strong wolf who is a dominant maternal, but with know kids around she is lost.
Years ago it was the Central’s Alpha that started the war with the Redwood pack, during that war some of Central’s decided to take a chance and break away from their Alpha because they wanted no part of what he was doing. It was because of this war and the fact that the Alpha consorted with a demon that the Moon Goddess took away the pack bonds from the Central wolves that were able to escape, making them unable to mate, have new babies, and no hierarchy.
Mitchell has been helping to train the Central pack, since they can feel that soon the Moon Goddess will bless them with the pack bonds once again. He seen Dawn there and wants nothing to do with her, he also has seen her at the barista job in town and refuses to give in to the draw he feels.
Dawn thinks he’s yummy but knows he wants nothing to do with her, but that changes when she is attacked by a rogue wolf. They can deny their wolves any longer. Mitchell and Dawn realize that they have the potential to be mates, but neither is ready for a mate yet and decide to just be “friendly”. Lol.
OMG! Mitchell’s story before Dawn just killed me, talk about a tragic back story. When he tells Dawn about it, she realizes that even if she was ready to be Mitchell’s mate, he will never want a mate. It’s just crazy all around, but they finally get it together.
Ryan, promised a new big bad for us and she did not disappoint, the revelations that came out in this book came out of no where and I can’t wait to see where we go from here.

#Review – Mako: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance by Bella Roccaforte

Mako: A Wolf’s Hunger Alpha Shifter Romance

 

The Beta of Blackhawk Pack, Mako would sacrifice virtually everything for his pack, including his life. But when a beautiful mage arrives to stand in as healer in the aftermath of near destruction of the pack, Mako is suddenly struck by the Hunger.

When Robin comes to the Blackhawk Pack, the last thing she expects is the Beta of the pack to claim her as his mate, something she has no time for. Her mission is to find and exact revenge on the anti-mage who killed her grandmother.

Robin and Mako fight their Hunger-fueled, primal attraction tooth and nail, while looking for answers and retribution in the midst of great danger for them and the pack.

Will Mako succumb to the legendary Wolf’s Hunger? And will Robin surrender to his mating call that’s becoming impossible to resist?

****
From New York Time’s Bestselling Author A.K. Michaels
A Wolf’s Hunger is a series of standalone Shifter books each with a HEA and absolutely no cliffhangers.
Full of passion, intrigue and Paranormal Romance. Jam packed full of suspense, romance, thrills and hot Shifters.

 

Goodreads

 

The plans we have for our life and what fate has in store for us never seem the same. Love me some Mako! The pack is in the middle of a terrible situation and they are being selective in who they trust with and within their pack. Robin, a mage, pops in unexpectedly and announces that she is their new interim healer. Mako starts in with the hunger and has no idea what this new feeling is. He has found his once in a lifetime mate. The pack was burnt by their previous healer/witch so they are skeptical of Robin. Robin, being the mage that she is and growing up in a pack, doesn’t trust the wolves. Mako and Robin fight the attraction but in the midst of this there is a traitor and the pack is being attacked. This is where I leave you with what the story is about. The push and pull between Mako and Robin is unmistakably hot and romantic. This author can take these incredible characters and pull you into their world while making you feel every iota of their rage and hate, passion and love. I was sucked in from the very beginning and could not put it down. Love, love, love me some Mako!

**This is a stand alone but I recommend reading Saint first as Mako picks up right where Saint leaves off. I believe that if you read Saint first some of the backstory will have more meaning for you. **

#DoubleReview #NewRelease – Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4) by Sarah Noffke

Bad Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #4)

 

One man will kill to get back what belongs to him, even if he destroys himself in the process.

Mika Lenna, the CEO of Olento Research, won’t be deterred. Yes, the Lucidites have the upper hand, but he has something better. The one thing that can really stop them. The potential to create the rivalry to any werewolf. Mika has crossed the final threshold of humanity to do something that no human would dare do. But if it pays off, then for him, it will all be worth it.

The pack is stronger than ever, but still missing so many members. Still, they find a way to band together to create a cohesion they didn’t know in their past lives, the ones before becoming werewolves.

Meanwhile, the Lucidites are quickly making progress with a solution that might help the men assimilate with the wolf. However, will it come at a cost? The men have become accustomed to the wolf, and losing it may feel like leaving behind a part of themselves.
And finally, Adelaide has realized that her father’s death made her lose a part of herself. She dives deep to find a way to recover it, but will she surface, or much like her father, will she be lost forever?

In the final installment of the Olento Research series, the wolves must defend and those around them must decide if they’re willing to battle along beside them. The final fight won’t be nice or fair, especially when there’s so much at stake. Each wolf is hungry for victory, but will their maker be their death?

 

Goodreads

 

I absolutely love this series! I feel like I know these characters. They are a part of me, my tribe, lol! Adelaide is one of my most favorite characters ever. And combined with Rox (our resident hooker FBI agent), Zephyr’s pack of werewolves, and one of the nastiest supervillains makes for an intense read. All of the characters are trying to find their true self. They are tirelessly working on bringing the rest of the pack in when things take a turn for the worse. People are being tortured and are dying from Mika’s experiments. This has to be stopped and this crew is working on the solution. I feel the story is about overcoming self doubt, taking opportunities, and accepting second chances. Bad Wolf is nothing short of a page turner. There is never a dull moment within these pages. It’s action packed but with the sentimental touches that make this story absolutely special. The Olento Research series takes you on an extraordinary journey. I hope to see more of these characters in the future. Especially a certain couple. This is a must read!

**On a side note, I need to thank Sarah Noffke for giving us just a little more of Ren. Absolutely perfect. Sarah, thank you!**

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

Sarah has once again written a great series.  This is the final book in the Olento Series and I have to say it is my favorite series this far.  Really how could it not be my favorite it has werewolves, lucidities, and a little essence of Ren.

I was on the edge of my seat flipping the pages needing to know if Adelaide and Zephyer were going to get all the wolves back or if Mika was going to end up with them all. As always Sarah comes up with the best evil villains and Mika was like no other. He was killing and torturing people in the name of getting what he wanted at whatever the cost.

To watch the relationships of the wolves, Adelaide and Rox was amazing. To see how the wolves have grown and started working better with one another to see the strengths and weakness of each one, yes even Zephyer has weaknesses. Watching Adelaide gain confidents and learn how to cope with things was heartwarming. I have to say my heart was breaking to watch what Rox had to endure.

I hope we are able to see the wolves, Rox and Adelaide again. As this one comes to a close I am excited to see what Sarah has instore for us next. I have a feeling it will be just as good as the others she has given us.

A few of my favorites:

How does she do that? Pretend so well? Everyone thought she was so hard, but nothing could be further from the truth. This was a girl who just wanted to be loved. To feel deserving of that love. And if anyone ever told her how incredibly brilliant and beautiful she was, inside and out, then she’d feel a lot different about herself.

You’re an extension of Ren. You say his lines as if they were your own. You follow his practices, since they are exemplary. And you’ve inherited his snarky nature. However, isn’t the real concern you have with the group the fact you don’t want them thinking you’re an imposter? Now that they know about him, they’ll know you’re impersonating. The power you pretend to wield is his. Isn’t the issue that you can’t let him go as long as you refuse to be yourself rather than him? Who is Adelaide Lewis? She is the daughter of Ren, but she isn’t him. Have you asked yourself how you’d act if you weren’t trying to keep him alive inside yourself?”

he respected these two women, whom he’d been reluctantly thrown to. They were stronger than most people he knew, but had a flippant style that he’d come to appreciate.

he’s found a way to communicate from wherever he is, so I don’t think you’ve seen the last of your father yet. If I know him, he’ll be watching over you for the rest of his existence.”

#REVIEW – Lone Wolf: (Olento Research #2) by Sarah Noffke

Lone Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research Book 2)

 

When one man can’t reconcile with the wolf inside of him, he knows all he can do is run. Take thewolf with him and run away from those he doesn’t want to hurt. But will that be his greatest mistake?

The pack is coming together, but one wolf would rather be alone with his demons than united as a team. In the second installment in the Olento Research series, Connor runs from the Lucidite Institute and his pack, fearful of what the wolf will make him do. All of the men describe feeling the impulses, thedesires that are unquenchable, coursing through them. But Connor knows he has a lesser chance of resisting those impulses due to his background. And after what he almost did to Adelaide, he can’t risks it happening again.

However, Mika hasn’t given up and he’s more driven to retrieve the werewolves he knows belong to him. He plants a mole in the Institute and thengoes to work creating a werewolf meant to catch other werewolves. One that is stronger, faster and bigger than those in the original pack.

Meanwhile Zephyr is quickly following leads and tracking down members of the pack, but will he be one step behind Olento Research? Can he rescue his team and stop Olento Research before they capture their would-be assassins?

Lone Wolf is darker and more grueling than its predecessor. However, it’s also a story about characters who are so beautiful with all their many flaws. It’s a story about how the very best intentions can still lead to the worst scenarios. When one intends not to hurt another, they may find that’s exactly what they’ve done.

 

Goodreads

 

A must read! This series gets better and better with every word read, every page written, and every emotion that the author provokes. “Loners take the risks that leaders can never afford.” *sigh* So true! I am a sucker for shifters but most stories are similar in nature. NOT THIS ONE! It is very unique and completely sucks you in to this incredible world of Dream Travelers and Werewolves. And lets not stop here…the Dream Travelers have special abilities (kinda like superpowers!). There is plenty of snark and sarcasm (and I require a lot!) all mixed in with real life emotions of these werewolves that will….that just….that give you ALL THE FEELS! Action, adventure, feels….what more could you ask for? These werewolves were abducted and experimented on. The werewolves escaped in the firsts book and are now trying to come to terms with what they are and what happened to them in this book. The pack is split up. Many of them still don’t know what happened to them or the fact that these abilities they acquired have made them a hybrid of human, dream traveler, and werewolf. It’s a combination that let’s you, as the reader, know that anything is possible and anything can happen. This series and the author are truly amazing. This is one heck of an adventure that you don’t want to miss as they try and get the pack back together while being picked off by another experiment. It’s wild! Check this out, you won’t be sorry.
