#Review #Shifter Blackstone Wolf (Blackstone Mountain Book 4) by Alicia Montgomery

Wolf shifter Nathan Caldwell likes things casual when it comes to women, keeping them at arm’s length and never letting them get too close. So, when he meets the one, the mate his animal has chosen, he gets the surprise of his life when she rejects him.

Geologist Dr. Violet Robichaux is focused on her career and science. She keeps a tight reign on her emotions and her tiger, so when her animal chooses the foul-mouthed and rude wolf as her mate, she quickly shuts that down. Her stay in Blackstone is temporary, after all, and she can’t let her tiger or her heart make her decisions. But there’s another reason she can’t stay, one that’s a matter of life and death.

When danger brings them closer together, Violet and Nathan must face the odds to help a friend in need. They risk their lives to do the right thing, but also grow closer. Can Nathan convince Violet they’re meant to be together or will she resist the growing attraction so she can leave Blackstone with her heart intact

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

And another one bites the dust!!! Lol!! I think it’s funny that Montgomery’s men always seem to find their mates when they least expect it, it’s even funnier when the mate basically say “Thanks, but no thanks”.
This is Nathan and Violet’s story.
Nathan Caldwell is the Chief Engineer at Blackstone Mines, Dr. Violet Robichaux is the new temporary geologist at Blackstone Mines.
They both get one whiff of each other and instantly know they are mates. Violet immediately says “ Nope, can’t have a mate right now sorry” and Nathan says “ she doesn’t want me, well I don’t want her either. I have so many women I don’t need a mate”.
OMG, so much funny goes on with the, wanna mate don’t wanna mate stuff that goes on with Nathan and Violet.
Both are stubborn, both really want to mate, however while Violet has a reason why and just can’t share her secrets; Nathan’s reason is just stupid male pride.
While they deal with the to mate or not to mate thing, they also stumble into shifters being kidnapped and used as lab rats.
When they both sit down and really talk together, they find out that they really do want the same thing and that is each other. I can’t wait until the next Blackstone book I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s Luke, that’s lion is gonna be a handful and needs one heck of a mate beside him.

#WOTR2018AttendingAuthor #Review #Shifter Refuge (Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary Book 2) by Teresa Gabelman

Consumed with a need for revenge, Cole Jackson becomes blind to all he should hold dear. It’s not until vengeance has been carried out that he realizes what he’s almost lost.

After being brutally attacked, Leeza Snow, has kept her head up with her pride intact. What everyone doesn’t see is the shattered heart she conceals, not only from her pack but from the man she’s destined to be with.

While time can heal scars, it will take trust to offer a promise of a happy future.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book
This is book two of the Stone’s Wolf Sanctuary and it picks up directly where book one ended, however this book is all about Alpha Eric Jackson’s brother Cole.
Leeza Snow is a wolf in Eric’s pack, one who no one has really talked to since another wolf was raped and she was hurt trying to protect her. She feels everyone has stopped talking to her because she failed to protect the younger girl, what she doesn’t realize is that the pack believes she was raped also.
This pack while strong and killed the bad guy, has really done a disservice to Leeza and the young wolf who has left the pack by ignoring them.
Cole is furious because he wasn’t the one to kill the man who hurt Leeza, who btw is his mate and neither have acted on it, and doesn’t really know how to talk to Leeza so he has been avoiding her along with the rest of the pack.
Ok, first off Leeza is a strong woman. Her first thought when she saw what was happening to the younger woman wasn’t about herself but how to protect her, which got her hurt. She knew the other girl needed her afterward and with no regards for herself again stayed with the girl even though she needed to shift to heal herself.
When she realizes what the others believe of her she goes off on the Alpha and the pack, one for not asking what really happened that night and two for the way that the pack treated to woman who had something horrific happen to them.
I love when Cole realizes just how much he screwed up with Leeza. Men are such stupid creatures it makes me wonder why I love them sometimes, then I remember that they kill really big bugs for me sooooo…….
Even after learning the truth and mating he still screws up with her by trying to tell her who she can work for, but she shuts that down quickly and he learns that Leeza is not a mate that will blindly do as she’s told and follow, she’s a mate that will stand beside her man and be a partner.
Refuge show us that you don’t know what really happened with something unless you ask all parties involved, not every Alpha does everything right and can learn from others in his pack, and women are strong as heck and so don’t mess with us.

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

 

Sacrifice of the Raven (The Union Series #4)

 

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

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

 

Goodreads

 

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

Then one day, after complaining about the ending of a particular book, my stepfather told me that if I didn’t like the books that I had been reading, then to write one myself—so I did.

My first attempt resulted in a horribly written western when I was fourteen, staring a cocky gun-slinging cowboy by the name Curt Calhoun. Curt along with his seven brothers, who all shared C names in common, may never have seen the pages of a book, but that was the day I started writing, and never stopped.

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

 

Forbidden Temptation (Lee County Wolves Series) Book #4

 

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

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

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

 

Goodreads

 

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

 

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

 

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

#WOTR – #Review – Pursuit of the Raven (The Union book 3) by Shawn Reilly

Pursuit of the Raven (The Union Series #3)

 

Asher Lake, a wolf in his ani-shift form and Keeper to his people and the protégé’s left in his care, knows what he wants. He wants to reform the Union, become a better man, and test fate. Determined that Elle Ison has a place in his life, he sets out to discover just what that place is—while pursuing the one thing that might open doors to provide answers, to the curse hanging over his life, namely his stolen medallion.

Elle Ison, along with Asher’s brothers, Ari and Nixon, share two specific things in common—a love for Asher—and a desire to keep him alive anyway they can. Even if that means setting off on a fool’s quest or making certain sacrifices to keep him that way.

 

Goodreads

 

This isn’t some fairytale where the hero wins….This is the absolute truth about this series! Time is not on Asher’s side. And this is proving difficult for the entire Lake family. I have to be honest. At the beginning of the series I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Asher or not. Due to him being so closed off trying to protect himself he is a bit socially inept. But in this book we really see him evolving and now I don’t know what we would do without the one and only Asher Lake (and his mints). Actually all the characters are evolving. Asher wants to be a better man, wants to do good things for the Ani-shift community but there are others that are going to stand in his way. You can tell he wants to love too. Oooh how he wants to let it all go! At least this is what I read into it anyway, haha! As he starts to trust and opens up to be trusted all hell starts to break loose. All of the Lakes share a love for Asher and they will do anything to keep him alive. There are secrets that are being discovered. But with answers always come more questions. The new questions and the decisions that are being made will continue to keep you on the edge of your seat and trying to figure out the next move. Look out too because this one will throw you for a loop!

Goodreads

 

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

Kinyi has trained her entire life to be the strongest, most lethal rider on Kladuu.

When she’s sent to a crumbling Earth to track down the White Horn and bring him home to fight, she thinks it’s a fool’s errand. Until she comes face to face with the legend himself.

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

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

Goodreads

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

Goodreads

 

 

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

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

 

Halfway Drowned (Halfway Witchy, #4)

 

Something is wrong with Carlie.

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

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

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

 

Goodreads

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

#WOTR – #Review – Sterling (Black Mountain Pack Book 3) by Miranda Lynn

 

Sterling (Black Mountain Pack Book 3)

Feeling the need for a change, fox-shifter, Sterling accepts a mission in Texas to help a struggling pack’s club. The situation is worse than they thought when they arrive but when Sterling meets Reana he know he’s found he’s been given a second chance to have a mate . Too bad she doesn’t want one.

Reana is one of the few in her pack not effected by the black magic affecting them. When Sterling came to town, she thought he’d be the answer to their problems with the Resistance. She wasn’t expecting a possessive mate ready to settle down just when she’s ready to take off.

Time is running out and Sterling needs Reana’s help to save the pack before they’re forever trapped in this web of magic wreaking havoc on all their lives. But Reana isn’t sure she can accept fate and her mate, just as she’s ready to leave pack life behind for a life of solitude. Will Sterling change her mind and get his second chance? Or will Reana’s strong will keep them both from the happiness they deserve?

 

Goodreads

 

Yaaasssss! Love this!!!! I thoroughly enjoy the Black Mountain Pack series. Each book centers on a different shifter and Sterling got his shot! I love me some Sterling! One of the biggest things about his past is that he had a mate and she died. He is sort of in a slump with everything that has been going on with the pack and decides to take on a mission that takes him from his home and pack. Something is shady in another pack and there is a resistance that doesn’t want shifters mixing in packs. He and his crew go to infiltrate. Here is where we meet Rea. She is a waitress at a club but this club has got some serious restrictions. Low and behold she is a fox too!!!! And these two foxes want, no, they need each other. While Sterling and his group are in the middle of the turmoil of trying to find out what the issues are with this pack, Sterling is having a hard time keeping his mind off of Rea. Rea has had it ingrained in her that she can’t have a mate because leaving her pack will mean certain death. She tries and tries to maintain herself around Sterling but neither can help the undeniable pull. While they are orchestrating a strategy to take this shady pack down they have a budding relationship that is incredible to witness. The snarkiness that Miranda Lynn brings to the story along with all the action, and let us not forget the sexy time, really makes this story come to life. They are normal people who happen to be shifters. And they become the shifters that we love! Sterling is one of my favorites yet and I am looking forward to meeting the new members of the pack. Bravo, bring on the next one!
