#Review The Devil’s Wife by @gemmajames80

tdw cover

No one claims marriage is easy. That is especially true for Kayla Sutton, because she’s married to a sadist who takes the meaning of the word “dominance” to new heights. But Kayla should have known. She fell for his wicked ways after he blackmailed her, stayed after he kidnapped her, went back to him after he almost destroyed them both with his unpredictable fury.

Then she married him.

A year has passed since Kayla agreed to love, honor, and obey. Day after day, she survives his volatile nature. On her knees at his feet, underneath him between the sheets, bent over the bed to receive the fiery lash of his belt. But she’s beginning to miss the one thing she promised Gage Channing when she married him: her freedom.

NOTE TO READERS: THE DEVIL’S WIFE is a continuation of THE DEVIL’S KISS SERIES. For a better reading experience, please begin with the Devil’s Kiss before reading the Devil’s Wife. For mature audiences only. Includes explicit and disturbing subject matter that may offend some readers.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

The Devil’s Wife by Gemma James
Gage & Kayla
HOLY FUCKING HELL!!
5 Stars

So, this one blew my fucking mind! It’s taken me this long to write this review! I thought I might fucking smash something if I had to talk about Gage to early! Gemma, girl… you really outdid yourself with this one! You have captured a total asshole alpha in all his splendor! I can hardly believe it, but this book actually made my blood pressure go up! Wow!

Gage Channing is an egotistical asshole with a major control issue. I have never been so fucking pissed off at a character in all my life! He’s mean, he’s selfish, he’s offensive, he’s condescending, and he’s just enough alpha and sexiness to wipe all that spitefulness away. How Gemma still manages to make me attracted to this fuck, I’ll never know! I want to grab hold of his lapel, rip his mug up to mine, and scream in his fucking face until he agrees to be kind to Kayla. Jaysus Fekking Croist!!!

Kayla is a fucking doormat. A well-dressed doormat, but a doormat all the same. I loved her for the way she handled Gage in some circumstances and I hated her for the times she folded when I know she could have prevailed. She always has that power, but very rarely uses it. This in itself drove me bat-shit crazy! So, I’ll leave you with this… I loved to hate her!

The supporting character cast was very small… Ian… God, Ian… what to say! I love him and I wish I knew more about what became of him. Is he ok? Is he alive? My heart can’t take much more of this! Katherine! You gotta be fist fucking me here! This would have been the straw that broke the camels back for me… Total jaw dropping moment! Simone is a great friend of Kayla’s but I’m afraid doesn’t do enough for her. I know there’s only so much she CAN do, but jeeze… I think she could have done more, but that’s just me!

So, what can I say! This story has been so compelling since the first installment that once I pick it up, I can’t put it down. The characters are very commanding and heartbreaking, but sometimes make me see red! The dialogue flows and feels natural and makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! The entire book had me on the edge of my seat, constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. It’s has plenty of plot twists and turns and keeps you engaged from cover to cover.

kellys review

I have Spoken For this story! This is a mixture between YA with some scenes that could move it into the NA category. I absolutely love that this is set in 1989. So refreshing! Tatum is a sophomore in high school and has just lost her best friend, her grandmother. She has always embraced being different and being her own person. She ends up with Kyle, the super hot jock. She then thinks that everything is great and how she is so lucky that he wants her. Tatum is extremely naive and keeps trying to give Kyle the benefit of the doubt when he gets extremely possessive and abusive. She is put in a situation that is life altering. This is where things get really emotionally unstable. She feels that she cannot go to anyone. Zach (the other super hot, dark and mysterious guy) knows something is going on but cannot resist being Tatum’s knight in shining armor….or mobster in black. So many conflicting emotions and crazy secrets start surfacing. Gauntlets are thrown. And Tatum always ends up in the middle. The characters in the story are well written, extremely relateable, and easy to fall in love with. In the end Tatum does get what she wants but it may be at an incredible price. I have to say that I picked this book up because of the cover. It’s absolutely gorgeous! The perk is that the story is even better. I could not put this down. I am looking forward to the rest of the series.

#REVIEW – Fallen Crest University: Fallen Crest Series, Book 5 by Tijan

51703cqkKQL

Fallen Crest is back with a vengeance!

Samantha, Mason, and Logan are all together and united with one common enemy: Park Sebastian, the king of fraternity douchebags.

With professional football scouts eyeing his every move, Mason Kade has to walk the line for the first time in his life. Any move he makes against Sebastian has to be perfect and under the radar. One mistake, and his career is over.

Sebastian has other plans. Mason’s career isn’t his target—not even close. Wanting to destroy Mason completely, Sebastian knows he must hit him where it hurts the most: Samantha, who doesn’t give a rat’s ass that she’s the target.

Sam is bound and determined to protect Mason herself, no matter the cost, but what if the cost is beyond her imagination? What if this time, the villain wins?

 

Twinsie Jo’s Review

One of my favourite things about this series is watching the characters grow with each book. I feel like I know them and want to hug them every time something bad happens. These kids go through so much, it breaks my heart. The feels, the angst, the passion…it makes my heart skip a beat with every single word. I’ve devoured this series and I can’t wait for book 6. I do suggest starting from the very beginning so you get the full experience.

Sam is a powerful heroine. There’s just something about her that makes it easy to relate to. Even though she’s been through so much, she’s stronger because of it. She would do anything to protect Mason from Sebastian. The guy is a nob and wants to destroy her to get to the top. What better way to bring down the best then to go through the one he loves?

Mason. Kade. Two words people. Remember them. Every time I start one of these books, I get anxiety. I worry that something is going to happen to break them a part. Yes, that’s how invested in this series I am.

This series is amazing and I can’t wait for book 6!

#Review – Picking up the Pieces by Elizabeth Hayley @EHayleyAuthor

20521460

After a myriad of mistakes and a devastating breakup, Lily Hamilton is no longer the impulsive, selfish person she had once been. Now, she longs for the chance to make it up to the one person she knows holds the key to her happiness. But can he get beyond who she was and love her for who she is now? Or is history destined to repeat itself?

Adam Carter has gone through his own metamorphosis. His days of serial monogamy are long gone, and he’s been burying his hurt by dating women he has no intention of committing to. But when he sees Lily for the first time in months, he’s reminded of the man he used to be; the man he wants to try and be again–for her.

Max Samson is on the downward spiral from hell. Drinking and meaningless sex have taken over his life once again, causing him to revert back to the man he’d been before Lily fell into his life. But when his mother invites Lily back into his world, he suddenly remembers how good it felt to have her there. Even if he might not get to keep her.

Find out how Lily gets her happily ever after in this final installment of her story. This book is recommended for mature audiences due to language and unbelievably awesome sexual content.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Picking Up the Pieces by Elizabeth Hayley
UNFUCKINGBELIEVEABLY AWESOME!!!!
Lily, Adam, & Max
5 Mutha Effin’ stars!!!!!

You’re killing me! I mean seriously girls, I had major book hangovers after Pieces of Perfect and Sex Snob… now you totally fuck with my heart and soul over this one! (*Jaw drops) This story was so compelling that I could not put this down, I could not even speak! In fact, I think the only thing I could do was white knuckle it through this mix of emotions my body seemed to crave!!! This story, these characters were like my crack! I want to know them, I want to hang with them, and I want to be them. So much angst, so much craziness and sprinkle on some humor and hot sex and wha lah… you got yourselves a winner!!!!

Lily is so effing awesome! Funny as hell and oh so damn adorable! She may seem a little scatter-brained at times, but rest assured, she’s got it all figured out, well at least for that day she does! Oh to be young again! Talk about “Hot For Teacher,” I think I could dig having a teacher like her! She keeps herself busy as to not fall into that bottomless pit of self pity and wretchedness. She’s got a great approach to life and could easily be added to my girl posse!! I. Freaking. Love. Her and I’ll be celebrating on March 23 <>!!

Adam, well, he wasn’t my preferred character in Pieces of Perfect to begin with, but I guess he grew on me a bit… until I read this book and then he just got on my damn nerves! Every last one to be exact! At one point you think he’s all that and a bag of chips and then the floor drops out from under you and you’re like whaaaaa??? I get that he’s a single Dad and he’s suppose to have it all together, but he just seemed at times to act like a spoiled rotten brat! He would be the reason for my urges to throw my Kindle across the room!

Max, oh God almighty, Max!! Call me crazy, but I’m such a sucker for a bad boy athlete with an attitude problem! I guess you could call Max the “class clown.” He made me laugh out loud with his raw humor more times than I can count! I am now and will be forever on TEAM MAX! He’s just one ideal hunk of man that’ll melt your panties, make you giggle, and scare the shit out of you in one conversation! Just watch out for his rape whistle!! Love ya Maxi!!!

One of the best supporting character cast in a long time. Amanda is such a riot with her banter among just about everyone in here! Shane is, well Shane and seems to love the fact that Amanda is all kinds of fucked up, cause she’s his all kinds of fucked up! The way she talks to Lily, I had to wipe tears from my eyes… “If I were a guy, I’d fuck you!” or “Jesus Lily. He’s in your gym, not your vagina. Get a fucking grip.” All the teachers at Swift make being a teacher sounds good, even that “box of rocks” Tina! Even Adam’s friends got my dander up! Makes for some great emotions making me feel a little murderous at times!!! Welp, gotta go… gotta catch the next Greyhound back to Trampsylvania! Bwahahahaha!!!!

The dialogue feels very natural and flows with proficiency. It felt like I was inside Lily’s head at times, like I knew what she would do or say next. After reading the conclusion, I literally sat with my mouth open is amazement. To take this story where you did and end up with that climax, sheer genius! I love it! It’s 344 (Kindle Version) pages long, and I don’t know about you, but I read faster than I’ve ever read before and devoured every effing word that 344 pages went by in a flash…. time flies when you’re having fun!! The pacing is somewhat fast paced and I struggled with that option I always give myself… (I’ll put it down after this chapter) Yeah, right!!! Lost a lot of sleep over this one, but oh so worth it!

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Stain (King's Harlots MC, #2)

synopsis

“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…

angies review

 

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

WHAT!!  Asher…and…..Meeka!  OMG this book was so good…like way better then book Jay and Angel and that was a great book too!!!

OMG SO Asher and Meeka totally had me wiggling my eye brows at the two of them.  They had this chemistry but hid behind the “best friend” lines.  When Asher needs his best friend to go undercover he gets Meeka involved.   She doesn’t want to but the argument leads to a scorching kiss and has both of them shaking their heads. Meeka is like “What the heck?  Why am I reacting to my BEST FRIEND this way?”  However, Asher finally admits to his true lifelong feelings to himself about how he feels about Meeka.  I loved the friends to lovers story line.  They are both a mess and wanting it but so scared of ruining the best friend status they have had for years.  They both want what the other has to offer but are so scared to want it. The story of them falling in love is an amazing journey.  AMAZING!!!

Now the story that is going along with them two falling in love is with the traffickers again.  Asher is undercover trying to bring own this area of the ring.  Asher and Meeks meet with the leader and CREEPY doesn’t even do that man justice.  Plus the little spark he has for our Meeka…yeah Alpha Asher is not cool with it at allllllll.

The twist in the book was great and totally something I didn’t think would happen…..I loved the story and felt the ending scenes were a little bit rushed BUT that gave way to the feel of what was happening all around at the end of the story!  It was ANARCHY!!!!  As always with me, I wanted a longer epilogue but that is because I am an epilogue girl!  I am also excited for Colby and Brogan because that man is locked up tighter then Fort Asher!!

#Review – Pieces of Perfect by Elizabeth Hayley @EHayleyAuthor

18308384

As a sexy ex-hockey player, Max was the bad boy with something to prove. As a handsome single father, Adam was the man most women wait a lifetime for. Each man would take me on a journey of self-discovery that was marred with lies, jealousy, deceit, and a whole lot of fun. They each offered a glimpse of happily ever after, a piece of perfect. But in my constant quest to have it all, I would risk losing everything. Only one thing was certain. I’d never be the same after this.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Pieces of Perfect by Elizabeth Hayley
TO AIRPORTS, AUDITORIUMS, AND PRESS BOXES – CHEERS!
Max, Adam, and Lily
5 stars!

Well, I just finished this, as in like seconds ago! I’m trying to type this with teary eyes and a damn runny nose! Damn you Elizabeth Hayley! You sought me out, captivated me, and turned my world upside down! I am in love with this story and these characters. I cannot wait to read the next installment. It is so steamy, so funny, and so heart wrenching that I’m in awe that this is actually your first book. Congrats, you have a winner here!!!

This story of love, betrayal, deceit, and acceptance is unlike any other I’ve ever read. It’s not precisely dealing with anything too dark or creepy, but it will definitely have you so tied up in knots that I fear (for myself) that I will never be the same again. This is not your traditional love story, it’s much more! I mean we’re talking “A slice of pepperoni and an orgasm” for lunch! I think I’m going to enjoy my visit to “Delusionalville!”

I’m going to start with Lily (a.k.a. sailor mouth)… she’s a brilliant female lead character for so many reasons. She’s smart, witty, sexy, and for Godsakes man, she’s fucking two hot piece of asses!!! I must confess, she was getting on my nerves a tad, but I could almost appreciate her actions due to the dilemma she found herself in. I probably would have done the same things. Now Max, holy hell. That boy is hot, damn hot. I envision him being like this big dumb teddy bear that could be lead around on a leash eventually. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a total alpha male, but you could just tell there was something more inside of him, it just needed to come out. He can also bang like a champ in just about any situation for Godsakes. Adam, on the other hand wore his heart on his sleeve. Equally sexy, but oh so different from our sexy talker Max. If the two could just merge, you’d have the perfect man! Great supporting characters in Tina and both sets of parents. That Tina, now she’s somebody I’d hang out with! I could even say I enjoyed the “dirty pirate hooker” in the bar!

The writing style is effortless to read and flows very nicely. The pacing is not too fast nor too slow. I guess you could say it’s just right. I found myself blowing through some chapters like there was no tomorrow and others, I savored just a little longer. It’s 248 (Kindle Version) pages long and a perfect length in my opinion. There are too many highs and lows to single one out, but know this… It’s going to take you on a turbulent ride and at times will feel like the bottom just dropped out on you. Take comfort in knowing, you’re not alone. Been there, done that!

I’m not too certain about the ending just yet. I was a little freaked out, but have calmed some while writing this review. I’ve come to the conclusion that your climax was simply perfect… No, let me rephrase that, it was Pieces of Perfect! I am patiently waiting for the next book to come out, and when I say patiently, I mean more like, I’m biting my fucking nails, pulling my goddamn hair out, and slamming my Kindle around… so could you pretty please with sugar on top hurry!!! xo

#WOTR #Review #Shifters #Paranormal Forbidden Seduction ( Lee County Wolves book 2) by Teresa Gabelman

wotr-attendingauthor

Forbidden Seduction (Lee County Wolves, #2)

synopsis

Hunter Foster single-handedly ousted the shifter community after shifting in front of humans to protect a Vampire Council Warrior. With no regrets, he heads home to answer for his crime of breaking an outdated law.

Back in his town, he is faced with rogue packs challenging their alpha, his brother, as well as the woman he has spent years avoiding. Finally, he has to come to terms with what his wolf has been telling him and what he as a man has been fighting against

kristis review

What can I say about the craziness that is Hunter? He’s a wolf that makes you want to smack him and melts your panties at the same time!!
We came to know Hunter in Forbidden Hunger, but came to love when he protected Jill in A Warrior Wedding, now he’s back home to face the consequences of his actions of showing the world shifters are real.
Wow, I can’t get over how much Hunter grew from Garrett’s book being with the Warriors was soo good for him. Then again being with them would be good for anybody!!!
Emily is human living under the protection of the Lee County Pack and has been since she was a kid and she’s been in love with Hunter since he and his brothers came to town.
Love Emily, she’s such a firecracker!! She has taken shit for years and isn’t about to anymore and lets everyone, including Hunter, know it.
The interaction between those two breaks my heart and makes me happy at the same time! Finding out about Hunter’s childhood makes things understandable but it still hard, and seeing the way he is willing to do anything to make up the way he treated Emily as a teenager shows just how much he has grown.
When a group comes to town to try and take over all kinds of shit goes down and the Lee county pack kicks ass!!
I can’t wait for Marcus’s book and I hope his mate is who I think it is!!
OMG!!!! I forgot one of the best things of the book!!!!! Our resident VC Warrior comedian Steve is sent to help the pack with the Shifters and what the outing of them means with the government. Steve finding a girl he “likes” in town and the way it is dealt with is hilarious!!!
Oh! Oh! Oh!! And my hubby and sister wife Slade and Jill come to town too!!!

kellys review

What a twist of fate! The author has taken vampires and werewolves and put a new spin on them. This is not your ordinary paranormal story we are all used to. The Cynn Cruors are a species that was made using the best attributes of vampires and werewolves. Finn is one of the Cynn and has lost his parents at a young age. He is working with others to try and stop this war with the Scatha Cruors. Many years pass by and he is on the hunt for the Scatha in the middle of the night. The Scatha have their sights set on Eirene who is walking through the park by herself in the middle of the night. Finn jumps in and saves her life. And here go the fireworks! They are pulled to each other with an intense connection. One that neither of them can deny. What they don’t know is they both have a connection with the Scatha that tried to kill her. With her extraordinary computer skills and Finn’s Vampire/Werewolf blood they go on the hunt.

 

The streetlights cast shadows everywhere, but Eirene wasn’t afraid. There was something about the dark which beckoned to her and soothed her soul. It didn’t frighten her. It was as if the night knew she felt at home in it and welcomed her without question.

 

The author has this story jam packed with action and plenty of hot scenes to keep you wanting more. Ms. Cate does a great job of giving you a backdrop that you can picture perfectly in your head as well as making sure the characters all work together. You will feel like you are right in the middle of the story. This is the first book by Ms. Cate that I have read and it will not be the last.

 

about the author

Isobelle Cate is a woman who wears different masks. Mother-writer, wife-professional, scholar-novelist. Currently living in Manchester, she has been drawn to the little known, the secret stories, about the people and the nations: the English, the Irish, the Scots, the Welsh, and those who are now part of these nations whatever their origins. Her vision and passion are fuelled by her interest and background in history and paradoxically, shaped by growing up in a clan steeped in lore, loyalty, and legend.

 

Isobelle is intrigued by forces that simmer beneath the surface of these cultures, the hidden passions, unsaid desires, and yearnings unfulfilled.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Double Her Fantasy by Randi Alexander
Garret, Megan, and Trey
WOW, WHAT AN OPENER!
5 STARS

So, this is the opening book to the Double Seduction series. I was floored! I loved it, probably more than I should. My hubs is gonna start to wonder about me. LOL! Whatevah! This is a very sinfully, sexy kind of book. If you don’t like menage or anal play then put this book back on the shelf till you’re ready to pull up your big girl panties and read some sexy shit!

Megan is a recluse comic book artist who only surfaces once a year to meet and greet her fans. On the elevator to the conference she shares the ride down with movie star Garret McGatlin and emerges every so slightly out of her shell. Later on she’s pretty much smitten with him and agrees to meet up with him later.. and here’s where it all begins.. Mmmm… Trey!

Garret is the bigtime star and Trey is the cowboy rancher. I say who cares WHO they are, I care about what they can do for me.. I.. I mean Megan.. yeah, Megan! Together these boys are a force to be reckoned with. One can be kind of crass while the other one can smooth any little detail out! I am in DOUBLE TROUBLE!

So, this one was so compelling that I could not put it down. I would have had it read in one sitting, but my damn family needed me to be “mom” and “wife” – Bastards! The characters are lovable and I found myself hanging on their every word. The dialogue flows with efficiency and feels very natural. The writing style is effortless to read, but then again, Randi Alexander always is easy to read! It’s a very quick read, but make no mistake about it.. it’s very emotional and gritty and will leave you doubly satisfied! I loved it and I look forward to diving into the next installment Double Her Pleasure

#Review Buried and Shadowed (Branded Packs Book 3) by Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan

About BURIED AND SHADOWED

The Branded Packs Series from NYT Bestselling Authors Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan continues with two dark and heated shifter romances…

Buried

Gibson Barton knows his Pack is on the verge of something they will never be able to prepare for: a chance at freedom. Yet when he’s finally able to open his eyes to what might be his fate, it could be too late.

As a submissive wolf of her Pack, Mandy Calhoun has always only watched Gibson from afar. Because of her fears, she hasn’t let her intentions toward him—or the other in her sights—be known.

Oliver Dare is the Foreseer of the Ursine Pack, and knows with each vision, his death is that much closer. Yet he cannot see his own future—or that of the two wolves who have been thrust into his path.

There is danger lurking in the den, and as the three learn to process their emotions and navigate their temptations, they’ll have to fight for something they never knew they had—or sacrifice it all for a purpose far greater than their own destinies.

Shadowed

Sinclair, Alpha of the Unseen Pack, is determined to destroy the Shifter Accommodation Unit. He understands that his people will never be free until the truth is revealed and their enemies are brought out of the shadows and exposed to the public. Unfortunately, the human female who has been secretly working with him has disappeared, and his priorities must shift slightly. He’s resolved to track her down, and not just because she has the information he needs.

Mira Reese isn’t stupid. She’s painfully aware that the sexy shifter she’s been working with has been using her fascination for him to gain access to the CDC computer system. But that doesn’t stop her from helping Sinclair. Not when it allows her to be close to him. But after the CDC kidnaps her, she realizes that this isn’t a game. She’s a potential savior for the future of the shifters—and perhaps especially the loner wolf who stirs her passions.

kristis review

I received a copy for a honest review.

Ok, a little back story for anyone who hasn’t read the series.
The Verona Virus has just about wiped out the humans, the only cure is from the shifters. When they come forward, they are put into compounds, collared, and branded.
With the events that have happened in books 1 & 2 the wolves, feline, and ursine shifters have all been placed in one compound.
Oh, and YAY there’s 2 stories in every book!!
Now onto Buried!!
Buried is all about Mandy a submissive wolf, Gibson the hunky loner wolf that does all the tattoos for the packs, his compound and others, and Oliver is the Foreseer of the Ursine pack.
Things are about to change for the captured shifters, but they’re gonna get rough first.
Oliver knows something is coming, but anything having to do with him he can not see and now he can not see anything about Mandy and Gibson.
Gibson has never felt the need to be around others, and now he finds out something and only two people can calm him; Mandy and Oliver. Mandy knows that as a submissive wolf that she isn’t as strong as the more dominant wolves and she’s ok with that, but there’s something about Oliver and Gibson that makes her strong.
These three finding their way together is so awesome, I’ve been wondering about Gibson for a while and I never thought that Mandy would have these two awesome men as her mates, I was sure it was someone else!!
And Oliver!! Omg!! When he showed up in book 2 I sooo had to know more!! That this triad happens is was fate!! Gibson and Mandy do a awesome job at keeping Oliver grounded with his gift, Mandy and Oliver do the same for keeping Gibson calm with his. You may wonder what Oliver and Gibson do for Mandy, they give her strength. Being a dominate wolf is one thing, but it takes great strength to be a submissive wolf that the dominants can depend on.
They’ve had to worry about the SAU, Shifter Accommodation Unit, for years and now they have to worry about a inside the compound danger too.
I did not see this danger coming at all!! Ivy and Ryan do a great job of keeping you on your toes!!
Now onto Shadowed!!
Sinclair is the Alpha of the Unseen pack. The Unseen are a group of shifters that managed not to be put into compounds and are hidden in plan sight of the SAU, some going as far as to be working for them. They are trying to find a link from the Virus to the SAU, so they can expose it and the the captured shifters released.
As the Alpha he has been leading the charge against the SAU, using means necessary, even using Mira Reese, the human that finds him attractive.
Yes, Mira from finds Sinclair attractive, but she knows he’s using her for her clearance and skill; that doesn’t stop her from trying to help.
Sinclair, mmmmm, when he showed up my heart skipped a beat. He knows that what he has asked of Mira is dangerous, it’s for the good old his people, but he’s been meeting her more than he should and now that she’s missing he’s going crazy!! If Mira was a shifter, she’d be a alpha female cause lord knows she’s the only one that Sinclair let’s call him on his shit and can get away with half the stuff she pulls. These guys back and forth is so funny and they work together so well. When they finally take down the SAU, and the persons that created it, it makes me so happy that the bad guys got what’s coming to them, yet sad that the series has come to a end.
Or is it?!?!
You gotta check it out, but definitely pick up books one and two first you won’t regret it.

About Carrie Ann Ryan

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really. No, she loved math and science and even went on to graduate school in chemistry. Yes, she read as a kid and devoured teen fiction and Harry Potter, but it wasn’t until someone handed her a romance book in her late teens that she realized that there was something out there just for her. When another author suggested she use the voices in her head for good and not evil, The Redwood Pack and all her other stories were born.

Carrie Ann is a bestselling author of over twenty novels and novellas and has so much more on her mind (and on her spreadsheets *grins*) that she isn’t planning on giving up her dream anytime soon.
