#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Review #Paranormal #MMA #Mythology – Nature of the Beast (Gods of DC Book 3) by Tricia Andersen

Nature of the Beast (Gods of DC Book 3) by [Andersen, Tricia]

He was young, sexy and a huge flirt.
There was no way that Freddy, Ares high priest and the manager of his fight club, would have any interest in a old woman like Demeter. But when the goddess of the harvest arrives in London looking for her daughter, it was hard to leave the charming bartender. Despite the age difference, it was hard to deny the attraction. Would he still want her if he knew the truth about her, especially about the married ex-lover who would never let her go?
She was way out of his league.
Freddy did everything in his power to keep the goddess, Demeter, sitting at his bar sipping tea. It didn’t matter her age. He fell deeper in love with each passing day. However, Freddy holds secrets, some very deadly. Can he keep her in his bed and at his side or will the truth drive them apart for eternity?

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

WHOOOOO!!!! I LOVED ME SOME FREDDY!!  I mean Dee AKA Demeter was pretty awesome but Freddy….sigh…he was perfection.

So Freddy is not looking for any one-night stands.  He is looking for substance. When Dee comes to Aries club to see her daughter, Persephone, she is stunned by the sexy younger man giving her the eye.  Hey Dee hasn’t seen any “action” thanks to psycho/stalker Zeus and given her aging looks no one seems to care one bit about her needs/wants.

Freddy is enthralled by this woman.  They two have quite a deep relationship but soon Zeus is all “God of the mountain tops” demanding she stop this relationship.  Dee is destroyed because she knows how awful Zeus can be.  Freddy is not having it and he pushes Zeus a little harder then he should have for the woman he loves.  Soon Dee learns a lot more about the man she loves and all the secrets that come about his true identity.

I loved the story and I actually loved seeing Hades and Dee coming to an understanding about their love for Persephone.  But what I fear is what Zeus is going to do seeing everyone not following his orders when it comes to all things he considers HIS!!

From New York Times bestselling author Kylie Scott comes an irresistible new romance.

When a vicious attack leaves 25-year-old Clementine Johns with no memory, she’s forced to start over. Now she has to figure out who she was and why she made the choices she did – which includes leaving the supposed love of her life, tattoo artist Ed Larsen, only a month before.

Ed can hardly believe it when his ex shows up at his tattoo parlor with no memory of their past, asking about the breakup that nearly destroyed him.

Goodreads

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

I enjoyed listening to this story. I thought Andi Arndt did a wonderful job on this book. Her transition from one person to another was great. The story and the narrator did a wonderful job holding my attention and I didn’t want to hit the pause button.

Clem is left to figure out her life after an attack that left her with no memory of the past. She tries to find those who know her to figure out who she is.  Her first lead was her tattoo that led her to an angry tattoo artist Ed. Let’s just say Ed was not happy to see her.

Ed was heartbroken when Clem left him without even a goodbye. Now she is standing in hit tattoo parlor asking questions about their relationship and breakup. Ed is still upset and things are too raw for him to talk about it. When they think Clem could be in danger he finds her staying in his home.

While Clem is trying to figure out who she is Ed is trying to figure out if he can trust her not to hurt him again. They start talking and things seem to be going well but is it going well enough for Ed to trust Clem and try a repeat performance of their relationship.

I liked most of the people in this book. I enjoyed Ed’s brother he gave Ed shit about almost everything. I like the plot and that there were no flashbacks or memories as we read making Clem start over her life and us reading as she did. This truly was a second chance romance that I so loved listening to.

#Review #BlogTour #TwinsiefortheDayBecky #Dark – TAKE by Pam Godwin

Genre → Dark Romance (anti-heroes, human sex trafficking, cartel)

Series → Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.

He’s a notorious crime lord, a kidnapper, and an artist.

Scarification is his outlet, and he just captured a new canvas.

Kate refuses to surrender beneath his blade or the cruelty in his beautiful eyes.

But she’s drawn to the man inside the monster. A man who makes her ache with his touch. Who owns her with his kiss.

A man who worships her as deeply as he hurts her.

She can run, but there’s no escape from a bond carved in scars.

Review by Becky

I received a copy of the book for my honest review.

HOLY SHITBALLS!!! I knew that Kate and Tiago would couple up.  I also knew that Pam would take me on a wild ride through the story.  And…..what a wild ride!

Kate had been kidnapped, trained and tortured 4 years prior.  When Tiago kidnapped Kate, he took the next closest thing to Tate.  Tiago recovered from Lucia’s attack while he kept Kate isolated trying to break her.  What Tiago found was a strong feisty spirit that drew him to Kate.  Tiago’s darkness included watching his “victims” be raped by his guards.  He was going to watch Kate’s rape until she begged to not take that last thing from her.  Tiago was then lost to Kate and she would be his and only his to take.

Tiago was drawn to the blade and the bleeding it caused.  Yet…he was an artist with his cutting of Kate.  Her spirit and mind decided that whatever he cut would be beautiful and in the end it was.  No matter how much Kate didn’t want it, she was drawn to Tiago and saw the tenderness that no one else did.  Tiago worshipped Kate.  Although Kate didn’t know until she and Tiago were separated, Tiago had given up his corrupt ways all for Kate.  It wasn’t until Cole told Kate of the value of the stones in her barbell studs that she found out.

Quietly Kate made arrangements to look for Tiago as she knew in her heart he was out there somewhere.  Tiago found her before she left.  Pam takes you on a dark ride through Tiago’s heart and past….and then shows there’s a way to open closed hearts.

Pam….I thoroughly enjoyed reading Take as well as this entire series.  I can’t wait to see how you weave the rest of the Freedom Fighters lives.  KUDOS!!!

Goodreads

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

Wow! What a book!  I think as Kylie steps away from her Stage Dive series, more people are falling in love with her depth of writing and abilities.  Don’t get me wrong, I loved the series but seeing her write this and the others she has released since shows her amazing skills.  She is hitting different subject matters and knocking it out of the ball part.

This book is amazing in that you wonder how would you be able to deal with SEEING the person who destroyed you yet doesn’t remember?  Could you still hold that grudge?  Could you forgive and move past it with this “new person”?  I don’t know how I would react to be honest!!

This is what Ed is dealing with.  Clem was that person to him.  She was mugged causing amnesia so she forgot everything.  She can’t be left alone and so he comes to help her sister care for her.  He is having a difficult time because he hates her and loves her but is confused by what to do for THIS Clem.  This is not his Clem and yet it is!!!

What I loved was seeing the couple get on and over what happened in the past.  They are able to fall in love again but not really again because it’s a new Clem and a changed Ed.  It loved this 2nd chance love story.

#REVIEW – The Five by Lily White

This is not your average love story…

Every man who meets Rainey wants her. Having lived a life of sex, drugs and manipulation, she is a temptation with far too many secrets.

When psychologist, Justin Redding, is assigned to Rainey’s case, he has no way of knowing the tale of debauchery he will encounter.

On a twisted path of love, loss and murder, Rainey leads Justin through the events of her life.

Death follows Rainey…
Justin fights to discover her secrets…

But will he discover the secret of THE FIVE in time to resist Rainey’s ultimate seduction?

***DISCLAIMER: This book deals with sensitive subject matters that may be upsetting for some readers.

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a HUGE fan of Lily White and her dark, delicious stories. No one writes like her. She is her own and her craft is top notch. Anyway, enough girl-crushing.

Everyone dies around Rainey. It says it in the blurb. But the what, where, when, why and how are to be determined. Well, in comes Justin. A psychologist who gets paid to figure out basically, what the heck is going on.

Rainey is beautiful. More so than your average woman. Tall. Curvy. She has men lusting after her by a mere look. But again, everyone dies she comes into contact with. Maybe not everyone exactly but enough people that it causes some questions.

Rainey begins to tell Justin her story. Her life. Her tragic tragic life. And I can’t…it takes a lot to make me cry, or get choked up while reading. But Lily…her writing is on a whole other level that most have mastered yet. I’m a writer and I haven’t even mastered that and I’m fine with it because like I said above, Lily is her own and she’s the Queen of dark. Did I tell you that I was a fan?

This book is raw, emotional, upsetting, gripping, page-turning and uncomfortable. Rainey unfortunately makes stupid choices. So so many bad decisions that I wanted to wrap her in my arms and give her a hug.

But enough of my gushing and rambling. I’ll leave you with one word:

Rowan.

Emily R Pearson – you probably know me as the author with the sweet little red head that runs around the signing asking for your signature 😉 I now have a new addition who will be learning all the tricks from her sister this year! We live in Deer Creek with 3 hyper dogs and a rude cat. I work as a technology teacher and am working towards my Master’s in Education.

Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?

I love writing on my back patio while the dogs and the child frolic in the yard. A glass of wine and sour patch kids are a must.

What are you favorite things about attending signings?

Meeting all the people. I LOVE spending time with fellow book nerds and talking about fictional lives that make us happy.

What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?

Richelle Mead. Goodness help me I’d pee myself. I FLOVE the Vampire Academy series. Dimitri. SWOOOOON!

What author would you love to write with?

Quinn Loftis. *Heart Eyes*

What is your favorite memory so far as an author?

The first time I met Denise Grover Swank and Trisha Leigh. It was at a signing in Kansas City, MO. It was a dream and it sparked my journey into writing.

#WOTR19 – #Review – Order of Malice (The Order Series Book 2) by Lisa Caviness

 

Order of Malice (The Order Series Book 2)

 

rmed with a new identity, Reid Patterson plans to join the FBI hoping to right the wrongs of The Order, a sinister faction controlled by his murderous, biological family. But Reid’s plans go awry when a young girl pleads for his help, bringing fresh threats, a beautiful woman, and a thrill-seeking boy. The countdown begins ticking toward a fiery contest of will and passion.

Foster care psychologist Holly Babson, dreams of a life where her escaped convict father and the memories of her sister’s horrific death are both locked away. While helping a runaway teen, death returns to her doorstep, revealing the teen’s connection to The Order. Holly’s life pivots as her past, her fears, and her heart are locked in vicious turmoil.

Denied a place in The Order, wealthy businessman Ivan Sinclair will stop at nothing to reclaim the top seat in his family’s insidious organization. A deadly game is his vehicle to amass even more power.

Reid and Holly’s worlds collide with the diabolical force of The Order, and Ivan’s cold-blooded plot. Together, they must fight for their lives while learning to trust their hearts.

 

Reader beware, you are about to be sucked into another insanely twisted game of the Order. You will not be able to put this book down until the very end. And once this story is finished……well you will have to see.

 

I love where this author’s mind is while writing these stories. The Order is like nothing I have ever read before. The Order has a reach much further than I expected. And the impact that the Order has on all the characters with the crazy and intense amount of planning that went into their shenanigans is incredible. It’s like the mafia on steroids! “…..a bunch of crazy people with blind allegiance to a deranged ideology.”

 

Reid (the new identity of Walker from the previous book) is surprised when a girl approaches him and claims to be his niece, Lila. Along with Lila we meet her best friend Cody and the social worker, Holly, that watches over Lila. What we find out is that each character, Reid, Lila, Cody, and Holly all have their own secrets. Everyone is dealing with a demon from their past and each in turn find out that they are all intertwined in the end. The Order has this group going on a crazy scavenger hunt to pick up the Order’s artifacts, ultimately to bring them back to the Grand Commander, the leader of the Order. The only problem with this is that there are several different players that think they are the leader. There is a huge power play going on and our group is right in the middle.

 

This story is so far from predictable. I got to the point where I didn’t even try to figure out what the next play was but to just let the story ride out. It is quite the thriller with intense twists but with a touch of love at the end of the day. The only problem is that when this ends…..there is more, so much more…..

 

Can’t wait to read the end of the series with The Order of Rage. I’m on pins and needles trying to figure out who will make it out on top and alive! A must read! Bravo, Lisa Caviness!!!

Note to self: Never agree to play an innocent dice game during a blackout in Vegas. I should have known it wouldn’t remain innocent, not in the city of sin.

What’s worse than being locked in a room with a vibrating bed and your sworn enemy? Waking up next to him… naked! Did I mention he’s also my boss? Oops.

Hard Luck by K.A. Ware:
Ellis James is my kryptonite, the only person who could drag me back to Vegas after I promised myself I was done with that life. I’d bleed for her, I’d die for her, but can I save her?

Becoming His by K.I. Lynn:
When I slammed into Hollywood heartthrob Reid Gallagher, I never imagined it would turn into a first date I’d never forget. After all, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas…right?

Going Down by Lisa Shelby:
She’s the only person I’ve ever loved and I’m the last person she wants to see. She’d hoped to avoid me as much as possible in Vegas, but when we get stuck alone in an elevator, not even she can deny that our chemistry still runs hot.

Blind Faith by Lauren Runow:
I never expected to be locked out of my room basically naked in a total blackout. Thinking that would be the biggest shock of my night was my first mistake.

Goodreads

Becoming His by KI Lynn

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

When KI passed out the form for this, I had to jump.  I mean a novella taking place in Vegas…yes please.  We all know what happens in Vegas NEVER stays in Vegas right!!    All the stories that take place in this anthology are happening during a citywide Blackout in Vegas.

This was a super intense read but a quick read for any fan of her writing….and I am a fan for sure.

Reid, hottie movie star, who crashes in to Harper, regular insecure woman on vacation.  The characters are pulled together while they are in the elevator and they just can’t seem to shake off what they are feeling.

This was a great quick read a in a great collection of novellas.

K.I. Lynn is the USA Today Bestselling Author from The Bend Anthology, Amazon Bestseller Becoming Mrs. Lockwood, and the Amazon Bestselling Series, Breach. She spent her life in the arts, everything from music to painting and ceramics, then to writing. Characters have always run around in her head, acting out their stories, but it wasn’t until later in life she would put them to pen. It would turn out to be the one thing she was really passionate about.

Since she began posting stories online, she’s garnered acclaim for her diverse stories and hard hitting writing style. Two stories and characters are never the same, her brain moving through different ideas faster than she can write them down as it also plots its quest for world domination…or cheese. Whichever is easier to obtain… Usually it’s cheese.
