#Review #WOTR – Call of the Raven (The Union) by Shawn Reilly

17661306

 

Love is something everyone longs for at the deepest level—but for some, love is a curse. This is most certainly true for Asher Lake, the Keeper of an unknown group of people called ani-shifts. Ani-shifts, those with the ability to shift into animal forms, compose a secretive body of individuals known simply as the Union.
A wolf in shifter form, Asher lives with a curse placed upon him and his predecessors by the elusive Raven—a dark entity whose identity remains a mystery. According to the ancient archives, the Raven’s curse is conditional and set in motion by one fatal decision: if a Keeper ever allows himself to fall in love, he will die.
Choosing to live in isolation within the walls of Lake Manor, a private estate concealed by the dense woods of Brokenridge, Asher has vowed never to love or to fall in love with anyone believing it to be the only way to survive the curse. However, after ten years of neglecting his people and the protégés left in his care, along with the impending threats of an uprising, Asher learns the only way to break the Raven’s curse on future Keepers, thereby preventing them from suffering the same fate, is to accept his.
This becomes Asher’s biggest challenge of all when he encounters Elle Ison, the woman of his dreams. Does Elle hold the key? Can she help Asher change his fate?

 

Goodreads

 

Don’t resist. Fate is fate and things are meant to be. Or so they say…..

First, I must say that paranormal is one of my favorite genres. I love shifter books but sometimes things get a little redundant when they are all similar. Call of the Raven is so much more. There is a lot of world building and the author does a fantastic job. And some of the characters, well, they are a little intense but soooo relateable. Definitely not your normal shifter story.

Asher is the Keeper and is destined to die an early death once he falls in love. Grant is his predecessor and tried to set things in motion to break the curse. To try and avoid this fate Asher has closed himself off and vowed not to love or fall in love. With this he has neglected his family and society. 10 long years have passed and secrets are unfolding. Asher and his group of proteges are trying to find Grant’s daughter (that no one knew about) and Asher finds the woman who he has only seen in his dreams.

Things then get real sticky and the angle is not clear on who and what is really happening. The story keeps you guessing, constantly trying to figure it out. You will be as confused as the characters (in the best way possible) as you feel like you are right in the middle of the story. The hierarchy of the shifters and their society is completely different than what I have read in the past. This is truly a great start to what I expect to be a great series. I am looking forward to the 2nd book and more from this author!

When it seemed like I was only an F away from flunking out of the sixth grade, a retired school teacher 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 because 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, he 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.
I have over fifty books on my computer which I’ve written in various genres, all of which are waiting to come to life. Even though my ability to write has improved over the years, I am humble enough to admit that I cannot venture on this journey alone

Prologue

From the moment I found out I was pregnant, I was in love with her. But almost as fast as that love formed, she was taken from me. Now as I looked down at my daughter, laying in my arms with her eyes closed, I only imagined that she would open her eyes for me. Just give me a breath. Anything. Wake up for me, baby girl.

When my lips touched her forehead, I prayed with everything in me that she would cry. But she didn’t. She couldn’t. It wasn’t fair. None of this was fair. The man I loved wanted nothing to do with me and the daughter I didn’t know, was stolen from my very body.

I begged to anyone who would listen, let her stay with me. Take me instead. She didn’t deserve this. She didn’t deserve any of it.

With tears rolling down my cheeks, my sobs of anguish ripped through me. They took hold and strangled me, sucking the air from my very lungs.

“I love you, baby girl,” I kissed her softly on her perfect mouth. “I love you and I don’t even know you,” I said through my tears. Brushing my thumb over her full cheek, I kept my lips against her forehead. “Lord, give me strength. Help me move on from this.” My breath hitched. “Help me learn to live without her.”

“Maxine.”

I didn’t look up at the gentle voice, knowing that the person had come to take my baby away.

“It’s time, dear,” the nurse reached a hand out, placing it gently on my baby’s head. “I’m so sorry.”

A sob tore from my throat. “It’s not fair,” I screamed, my soul shattering around me. “It’s not fair. I need more time. Please.”

The older nurse nodded, leaving me alone with my daughter.

Lying down on the bed, I kept her by my side, holding her close.

It never should have been like this. We were supposed to be happy. Just her and I.

When my baby girl was taken from my arms, the last bit of light inside of me went with her. My world would forever be clouded in a sea of darkness.

Because of this, a part of me died.

Because of him, I would never be the same.

#WOTR #NewRelease #Review – Craving His Command by Jenna Jacob

Synopsis

After being rescued from a monster posing as a Master, Mercy O’Connor—known as Symoné at Club Genesis—craves the chance to experience true surrender. The only problem is, she’s set her sights on sexy, commanding Sir Justice, who studies her with his dissecting, arousing stare…but never offers to show her his ropes. Worse, Mercy realizes she not only craves his dominance, she yearns for the notoriously aloof Dom’s affection.

If Kellan Graham let himself believe in love at first sight, Symoné would own his heart. After having his life ripped apart, he’s spent years inventing ways to resist simple lust, but each time this beautiful submissive turns her pleading eyes to him, she ignites a complicated conflagration of desire Kellan can’t fight. He keeps his distance…until it becomes clear he’s not the only Dominant who wants her. Determined to guard his soul, Kellan invites her to kneel for him. But once he does, he realizes that falling in love with Symoné is not only a threat to his well-ordered world, it’s inevitable.

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

We are back at one of my favorite fictional places…..Club Genesis!!!!
Mercy O’Conner aka Symoné has been drawn to the beauty of the Dom/sub relationship for a while. She thought that she had found her Master that would teach her the ways of being a good sub. What she actually found was a master manipulator Davis Kerr otherwise known as Master Kerr.
In the last Doms of Genesis book he was kicked out of the club and tried to start his own by poaching members of Genesis, a few of the Masters and their subs went undercover to infiltrate it and actually ended up rescuing a few subs with Symoné being the main one who needed the help after Master Kerr continued to beat her bloody after she had used her safe word.
Now she must deal with Kerr coming threading and stalking her after she filed charges against him, charges that were thrown out.
Master Justice has been watching Symoné since she’s been coming to Genesis, watching because he knows if he got close enough to her to do the things he really wanted his heart couldn’t take it.
Master Justice is Judge Kellan Graham, after saving Mercy when Davis threatens her in the courthouse he gets closers than he intended.
Symoné knows Master Justice, well she knows of him from Genesis, she has been watching him as much as he has her. She thinks that he is the perfect Master to teach her the right way to connect with the submissive within her, however he refuses to and she can’t understand why, After all she just wants a Master of her own.
Symoné is the bratty sub that Master Justice likes, but she is also a threat to his heart and mind.
What happens next is a story of secrets, threats, and love. Will Kerr catch Mercy or will he continue to be one step ahead. Will Kellan give in to his desires? Will Symoné ever find a Master?
I’ll never tell, you have to read for yourself. It’s worth it I promise!!! I can’t wait for the next in this series!!!!

#WOTR #Review – Rook (Black Mountain Pack Book 2) by Miranda Lynn

34884580

Rook heads to South America and finds his hands full with bringing the Pride out of the dark ages that Tomas had kept it in for years under his malicious ruling. He reunites with a few old friends and discovers a dark and twisted world he never knew existed behind the closed doors of the Alpha’s house. With the help of old military buddy Jonah he guides the Pride onto the path of a happy and fruitful living.
Fate has other plans when Rook is blindsided with the fact that his true mate had been kept in the clutches of the former Alpha. Locked behind doors and used as an object to be shared rather than respected and revered as all female shifters should be.
Will he be able to cull the evil from the Pride and make it safe enough for Casey to lead without fear? Will he be able to help his mate heal from the hell she has been put through and coax her cat to come out and play?

Goodreads

Beautifully written story with a great message. I could not put this down and read it in one sitting. In Mack, we learn that Rook used to be Casey’s protector and they are reunited within the pack. Casey is now the first Alpha Female and is the Alpha of the Pride in South America. Rook is one of her most trusted friends and he is sent to the Pride to check things out and see exactly how bad things are before Casey goes down. Rook is faced with many evils and keeps uncovering the ways this pride has lived for so long under the rule of Tomas, the previous Alpha and Casey’s father. He finds a harem of women and their cubs that Tomas kept to himself or gave out as favors to others. The way these women and children lived are horrible. And the village….well it is no better. Rook and Casey have their work cut out for them. In the midst of this Rook has found his mate, but Jasmine has seen many bad days and feels she is broken. Their love is blooming and the cats are ready to play! There are many new characters that are introduced and I am looking forward to hearing their stories as well. Love can conquer all, but this is a great twist on the shifters we have come to know.

#WOTR #COVERREVEAL – Numb (King’s Harlots, #4) by J.M. Walker

Blurb:

He doesn’t remember.

In the beginning, women and alcohol were one in the same. Until he met her.

The pain and heartache he caused her died when he was shot and fell into a coma.

Waking up is the only way he can get back to Maxine Stanton while she does everything she can to push him away.

She hates him.

Every fiber of her being loathes the man she fell in love with but she can’t control her heart and wants him just the same.

When Dale Michaels finally wakes up, she realizes they need to end this once and for all, before it destroys them both.

When an unexpected source rips through what they’ve worked hard to maintain, only then do they realize the full potential of their love.

#WOTR #REVIEW – Rude (King’s Harlots #3) by JM Walker

33009433

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

His past haunts him.
Broken and destroyed, keep him silent and withdrawn.
Vice-One is the family he had always needed but it isn’t enough. Shadows of a nightmare threaten to take back the control he craves until Brogan Tapp unknowingly puts him in his rightful place.

She pretends to be happy.
Smile. Laugh. Repeat.
Going through the emotions of everyday life when really, she’s a scared little girl on the inside.
She tries hard to be what society considers as normal when Coby Porter helps her embrace the darkness within. He shows her it’s okay to be different.

Their souls collide, giving them the comfort they need when an unknown source takes pleasure in trying to rip them apart.

Goodreads

Intense. Dark. Dangerous. Delicious. What do you do when you find your match? Coby-effing-Porter and Brogan-little one-Tapp. The most unlikely of pairs. In the past stories we learn that Coby is a man of few words. He only speaks when necessary and is like a ghost. Brogan is a small girl but is one of the toughest of the King’s Harlots. She is extremely outspoken and doesn’t beg for anything or anyone.

As King’s Harlots and Vice-One are dealing with their own personal issues they are still trying to get to the bottom of the trafficking scandal. One night Brogan is “interrogating” someone from the organization and Coby sees a very dark side of Brogan. What most people would find dark, scary, and extremely intimidating, Coby fills with a lustful desire for Brogan. Both have had their fair share of people they have slept with trying to sate their appetite but neither have been able to let go like they do with each other. They are in a complex game of give and take. Both have had terrible childhoods, very different but similar all the same. And here is where they they really start to rely on using each other. Brogan almost dies in an accident and Coby becomes extremely protective of her. Then, Boom! Buckle up for an intense ride!

And this is about all I can tell you of the actual story so there are no spoilers. But there isn’t just one twist that will stop you in your tracks but there are several twists that are going to make you gasp. I mean real, heartfelt, deep in your soul gasps. I thought the other books in this series were intense but this one takes the cake. Once again the bad guy is truly twisted and really puts this story in its place. I find that when I read a series that the first book is usually the best and then they wind down as you go through the series. Truthfully, this is my favorite one yet. It is not your normal damsel in distress. Again, many gasps…promise. There is plenty of hotness that I have come to know from JM Walker with this series but the rollercoaster ride of emotions is the killer. Beware, you won’t be able to put this one down!

#WOTR #REVIEW – Stain (King’s Harlots #2) by JM Walker

28793866

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

He wants to be alone.
Nightmares from his past keep him guarded and afraid.
Vice-One is his life. They’re his brothers—the only people who helped keep him out of his own head long enough to move on from the childhood he never asked for.

His therapy has been protecting his country, barely taking a break before beginning his next mission. But no amount of training can prepare him for his great challenge yet—convincing Meeka Cline that she will be his.

She wants out.
Her world fell apart when King’s Harlots no longer trusted her, but she continues to fight to gain back their respect.
All she wants is to help those wronged by the evil that has put a shadow on everyone she knows.
Asher Donovan comes to her for help when he needs her most only to have passion flare up between them. One problem: He’s her best friend.

Putting aside their friendship, they use the heat between them to please the depraved minds they now understand…

Goodreads

What did I just read?! Uh, yes! Gimme more! This can be read as a stand alone but I highly suggest reading Grit first because you get a feel for Asher and Meeka along with the rest of the supporting characters. Stain is aalllllllll about Asher and Meeka. These two have been best friends since they were kids. But that’s it, just friends. They trust each other implicitly. This is a story of friends turned lovers…sometimes a bit cliche’ but JM Walker hit it out of the park with their story.

Asher is undercover and trying to find the ringleader of this sex trafficking scandal that we learned about in Grit. He needs help and ends up bringing Meeka into this undercover as well, but not necessarily with her consent. As they are about to meet the person in charge now, Charles Brian, they end up kissing and things heat up extremely quick between the two of them. Now completely submerged into this other society they try to keep up appearances but things slowly unravel. Asher is more invested in the background of this story than you will ever expect. It will pull at your heartstrings! Unexpected people are in the middle and things go to hell in a hand basket very fast. Plenty of twists to keep you on your toes and constantly guessing who and what is going to happen next.

If there is one thing that JM Walker knows how to do, it’s writing a HAWT scene, but one thing I have come to love is the way the bad guy comes to life with her words. Charles Brian is a bad guy that you love to hate. As if Meeka and Asher aren’t intense enough on their own, the setting, the supporting characters and the bad guy will keep your heart pumping. I am not normally a fan of MC books but I cannot put this series down. Bad girls and their bad guys! Perfect combination.

#WOTR #Review # Shifter Forbidden Desire (Lee County Wolves 3) by Teresa Gabelman

Forbidden Desire (Lee County Wolves) Book #3

From the moment Marcus Foster saw Roxy Patel, he knew she was his mate. Remaining patient because of her troubled past, he was determined to build her trust. She was his and nothing would change that, not even time.

Leaving her past behind, Roxy refused to remain a broken shell of a woman. Determined to start afresh, moving to a new town was just what she needed. With the help of her new friends, and a wolf shifter wanting to make her his own, all Roxy needed was the chance to thrive again.

Goodreads

Amazon

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

Yay!!! Marcus, the middle of the hot Foster Brothers, finally gets his book!!!
I have been waiting for Marcus to get his story since Garrett’s book, there was something about him that caught my attention.
Roxy Patel is a human that has been under the Alpha’s protection since he brought her home after getting her away from her abusive husband. For two years Roxy has not left town, ordering everything she needs online, for fear of her husband finding her. Being still legally married to that evil man kills her and keeps her from the man that truly attracts her.
Marcus knew as soon as he saw Roxy that she belonged to him, she was his heart, his mate. Knowing that she too scared to leave town and still married to that a**wipe, well let’s just say it’s taking everything he has to not taking it into his own hands.
Roxy, is a woman that is coming into her own and she is a firecracker!! I love how she handles the jealous be-atches when they spew nastiness because a Foster chose someone other than them.
I love how Marcus loves Roxy not only for the woman she is outwardly, but also for the woman he know she is on the inside too. To me that is even more attractive on a man than good looks, though that helps too!!
The way he listens to the things that she likes and wants even before they are together is swoon worthy.
Roxy’s BFF Clare is a hoot, looking up divorce laws on google, helping her pick the perfect going out outfit, and helping her kick butt. I hope we see more of her. It’s great when you find a friend that will have your back like that.
There is new wolves, weird pregnancy craving that make me crack up, danger when the past comes a calling, and lets not forget be-atches and abusive husbands.
Omg!!!! I almost forgot we also get a small glimpse of my favorite Protector Dr. Hottie McVampire or wise known as Slade.
I can’t wait to see where we go next with the Lee County Pack!!!

Walker drops us once again into the dark and gritty world filled with MC’s, special-ops, and human trafficking with Brogan and Coby.
These two have interested me from the start of the King’s Harlots series and I’m so glad that their stories are finally told.
Brogan Tapp is the smallest of the all female MC’s club, but don’t let that size fool you into thinking she’s weak. Growing up with four brothers made her tenacious, the darkness inside of her made her a woman that you did not wanna mess with. She’s has a crush on Coby since his team came on the scene, but having gotten up the nerve to ask him out only to be shot down she does what he wants and gives him his space.
Coby Potter is a member of Vice-One the special-ops team that is now intwined the King’s Harlots due to love. Being a Navy sniper and a member of the special-ops team he has seen and done some dark s**t. The darkness is all he knows and he deals with it by lots of sex with random skanks. He wants Brogan but, he doesn’t want his darkness to get her, she’s too good. Oh, he knows she isn’t some pure lily white flower and that just turns him on more.
When they finally get together it is dirty and raw, which is perfect for these two characters and they in all their darkness are perfect for each other.
While still trying to find the person in charge of the trafficking ring s**t, goes down and that darkness inside them both ultimately was save them. I love a story with a strong heroine, one that can be soft with her man but tough as nails to the world outside their circle. Brogan is that woman and Coby lets her be what she needs to be and loves her for her even more because of it.
I adore that we see our favorite sadist Dr. Santos at the end. I have no idea who the next book is going to be about but, I do know that there is still a lot that the Harlots and Vice-one have to deal with and its going to be bad.

27264499

Holy shifters and the b@d@ss women they attract! Shayne is a girl that is just floating through life. She doesn’t have any close friends, no family, and hates her job. One night her path crosses with Ian and Riley. The brothers are shifters!!! All of a sudden Shayne is thrown into a world that she doesn’t understand. The boys are used to being in a place of power and are not used to here standing up for herself and her mouth. It is very amusing and will put a smile on your face during their banter. Absolutely hilarious. They find themselves in some very tricky situations, not all of are safe. They find out more about their uncle who is the current king by default. They decide to go back to their lands and place Ian as the rightful heir to the throne. The story is very hard to put down. There is always something crazy going on. With all the action and the banter the story will keep you hooked! This is my first book this author and sure not to be the last. I have no idea where Mary Martel has been hiding, but I found you now! I am looking forward to the sequel!
