#WOTR20 #PartOfASeries #Review #FreeKU #ContinuingSaga – Wake Up, Nicki Sosebee Book 12 by Jade C. Jamison

Wake Up (Nicki Sosebee Book 12)

When Nicki loses someone close to her, she realizes that her investigative reporting is endangering not only herself but those she loves. Now she is forced to choose between walking away, just as many of her closest allies have urged her to do—or to keep digging deeper to find the truth.

She’s not playing anymore—and neither is the killer. When Nicki notices she’s regularly being followed, she knows her next move could be her last.

With the stakes so high, what will she do? And how can she protect herself when she doesn’t know who she can trust anymore?


Goodreads


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

Ok first, you MUST BE CURRENT with this series if you are going to read this book.  This book is not a standalone.  It is part of the continued investigation Nicki is conducting in Winchester, CO.

This book destroyed me.  I really can’t even give a review without spoiling the main plot continuation for the series because ….yeah….just ugh!!  I mean I was bawling in chapter 1 of the book….chapter 1 people!!  AND TBH the tears didn’t stop for most of the book.

Al I can say is I loved getting to know Travis a bit better.  I loved Sean’s words of love for Nicki.  I loved seeing the girls helping Nicki.  I loved seeing Nicki getting feisty and angry.  I just hope and pray what I want to happen happens in the next and I believe final book of the series!!

Jade C. Jamison

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

#review #Shifter #SeriesStarter #Novellas #FreeKU – Cole’s Salvation (Black Hills Shifters #1) by Elisa Leigh

Cole's Salvation (Black Hills Shifters, #1)

Cole is the oldest of his siblings and is their clan’s alpha, since the death of his father. He gave up long ago thinking he would ever find his mate.

For months he’s been restless, on the verge of coming unglued. When his sister sets him up on a blind date, he almost loses it. She should know he’d only ever date his mate. When his sister refuses to cancel the date, he goes to let her down gently only to find that his mate is waiting for him.

Follow the Major family, a group of black bear shifters living in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Dealing with the death of their father and hiding their shifting abilities from the small town they’re from is nothing compared to the moment they meet their mates and claim them as theirs.

These are safe, interconnected novellas, guaranteed happily ever afters, with plenty of twists and turns to keep you glued to your Kindle.


Goodreads


I purchased this book.

Who doesn’t love a shifter series??  I mean they are my jam!  So when I saw a series written by 2 new to me authors, I jumped.  Another thing I loved was the fact the series is about a family of bear shifters.  I love books with the theme of family strongly woven into the theme of the book.

This book starts out with Cole’s alpha father being found murdered.  Now fast forward and he is a grumpy alpha shifter dealing with his 3 siblings.  He loves them but they are kinda on his last nerve.

When his only sister butts in and sets him up on a blind date at a sleezy bar, he goes just to save the girl from being taken advantage of.  When he enters…BOOM…his life changes in an instant.

Aubree loves her new friend but she is not to sure about this whole blind date thing.  When she sees a growly man entering the bar she is scared and intrigued at the same time over who he is.  The sparks fly immediately between the two and they soon are navigating this mating pull.

Cole was killing me with his over the top alpha bossy but Aubree sure put him in his place and let him know Girlfriend is not playing that way.

The story reintroduced the murder plot because the bad people are around again, so Cole and his siblings are trying to keep Aubree safe while investigating what’s happening.

I totally enjoyed the story buuuuuuut …here is when the shoe drops……I would recommend getting another editing of the story.  I am NOT a huge grammar Nazi but this book has several spots where I had to stop and reread to decipher what it should have said.  There were spots where the story didn’t flow very well and was a bit choppy.  However, even with those issues I am still looking forward to book 2!!

Hey Girl Hey!
I’m Elisa Leigh and I write romance books that are short and steamy with a ton of heart. They will leave you satisfied, but wanting more.

My alpha men are dirty talkers who treasure their women. There will never be any cheating in my books and they always end in a Happily Ever After! I don’t believe in sad endings.

Once upon a time, there was a faction of authors who frolicked in darkness and forged twisted tales. Their hearts, while still pure, adored those childhood fairy tales of royal princesses and true love’s first kiss, but their villainous minds craved danger and sinister delights—as did many of the readers in Romancelandia. And so these authors came together, each one choosing a beloved tale they’d manipulate and blanket in darkness. How vastly will fates change? Will maleficence reign supreme? Is true love’s first kiss enough to save their souls?

Tink
From the moment I befriended him, I set a conspiracy in motion.
A revolution.
Kill Peter Pan.
And I was their ultimate weapon.
I was also none the wiser, falling hopelessly and irrevocably in love with him as the years went by.
Just as they hoped I would.
But their plan comes to a screeching halt when Peter vanishes into thin air, something I’ll learn has nothing to do with Rosewood at all.
You see, Peter never truly loved me…because he loved a wench instead.
He lied to me, he used me, he left me, and he broke me.
Forever altering me in ways that incite revenge when Hook sweeps in with revelations and the ultimate truth.
Peter may have turned his back on me, but in the end, he and his precious little Wendy will choke on every last tear I once shed.
And I’ll have Hook to thank for that.
Hook
It’s no secret I always despised Peter Pan.
A common threat amongst the factions, I should’ve killed him when I had the chance, long before he sank his claws deep into Tinksley’s heart.
But his death at my hands wasn’t what the plan called for, despite how I felt for her.
I’d always been drawn to the girl, innocently enough at first…until that vile abomination marked her with his stamp, unleashing a sense of propriety I had no rights to.
Didn’t matter—he had her…and I wanted her.
Then like magic, he disappeared.
I thought my time had come, but the road to owning Tinksley’s heart comes with a price.
A price so dark and depraved it strips her of her purity and awakens the beast within.
All because of the truth.
Sometimes, there is honor in revenge, and it will be my utmost pleasure to watch as Peter Pan finally meets his maker.
His maker who will soon be my Queen.

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

GAH!!!  This book.  I had no clue its paranormal and so when the elements hit I was like WHAT!!  How did I miss it?  #SlowBrain

Our girl Ariel has had a bad life.  A drunk, stripper for a mom who only cares for Ariel if she can get something from another or pour her another drink.  Honestly Ariel is more of an annoyance then anything.  When her mother moves her and Ariel to a new town to be a live in “Companion” she is forced to adjust to a small town where everyone knows your business.  The towns people are not too thrilled with her mom sooo the kids in High School are not too friendly with Ariel.

On her first day, she runs smack in to the town hottie with an attitude named Tyson.  The two are thrust into each other’s path all day long.  She leaves and is pretty much hating life.  One day two everything changes and Mr. Rude becomes Mr. Friendly.  The two form a strange friendship.  Their friendship is now joined by a pair of twins who happen to live with Tyson and his brooding uncle Quint.  Oh yeah and they happen to be Ariel’s neighbors.

As the story unfolds there is more to Ariel then just a pretty girl next door and her new friends are keeping some big, crazy secrets from her.  The guys attraction to Ariel is off the carts and so is hers to them but that isn’t normal, right?  I mean you can’t be attracted to them ALL can you?  Then there is the brooding and cranky uncle who is not that much older than her who keeps checking her out and her him…so as you can tell…LOTS OF CHEMISTRY!!!

This book was sooooo good.  I didn’t stop once I started.  The beginning of the story keeps you invested because you feel for Ariel but then as the story unfold, DUDE YOU CAN’T STOP!!!!!!!!

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

#WOTR19 #Historical #Steamy – Smolder on a Slow Burn by Lynda Cox

Smolder on a Slow Burn

Allison Webster dreams of having an adventure like the characters in the books she loves. But there is no romance in being pursued by a man who wants her dead for educating the children of former slaves. Unlike the heroines she reads about she doesn’t have a trusty companion to rescue her…until she literally runs into A.J. Adams, a former Confederate cavalry officer. Now, she just has to convince A.J. he really is the honorable man and hero depicted in the dime novel she is reading.

Branded a “traitor” for more than ten years, scarred by harsh treatment in an inhumane prisoner of war camp, A.J. Adams wants revenge. Allison Webster’s arrival into his life provides the bait to destroy the men who murdered his wife and daughters and kidnapped his little brother. The men pursuing Allison are the very same men he has sworn to kill. Falling in love and admitting he might actually be a hero means surrendering his need for vengeance. Surrender is not part of A.J.’s battle strategy

Smolder on a Slow Burn by Lynda J. Cox

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

I love Historical books, but I have never tried a Western Historical and jumped when given the chance. I mean you will never know until you try I right??

This book was interesting in that it interweaves real life history with a made-up hero and heroine.  We get to read about the Civil War while also having the author embellish stories to go with the history of the time.

We meet Allison as she is about to miss her train.  She is on the run from some bad men when a not so polite gentleman pulls her onto the train she is chasing after.  The two spend some tie together in an inappropriate way given she is a single woman without a chaperone.

AJ is stunned by the beauty he pulled in to his cargo railcar, but he can’t look at her.  Since his wife Cathy has passed he can’t get over everything especially the guilt that he is why she is gone.

The two ends up running for some bad guys when Allison’s past is spilled.  As the two are running they slowly discover the attraction they have plus the few stolen kisses makes it impossible to walk away from the other….especially after the tub scene.  That was one of the funniest parts of the book.  AJ was pretty determined, and Allison was not about to be tempted.  The following meal conversation about his planned seduction was funny too.  Allison is no wallflower like she claims and pretty much tells AJ the way it is and isn’t going to be.  Gotta love a strong woman!!!  When she tells him “It’s not sleeping that gets people into trouble. It’s what happens when they’re awake!”  so cracked me up!!  But then when AJ offers us his whole heart…. “Allison, I have nothing to offer you other then myself.  I am offering you my whole heart, all my love, and my unswerving loyalty.”  I did kinda swoon bit.   How the heck do you NOT!!!

I liked that both characters had secret and both characters had some of the same enemies and how it all intertwined together.

Lynda J. Cox

Once upon a time there was a little girl who said when she grew up, she was going to have dogs like Lassie, own horses, and live on a ranch just like the Ponderosa. Two out of three isn’t bad. If she can’t live on a ranch, Lynda J Cox writes about characters who do. She writes steamy westerns, what one reviewer called an authentic blend of Old West action and happily ever after romance.

Her favorite authors are Leigh Greenwood and LaVyrle Spencer.

#WOTR19 #MMMF #RH #ReverseHarem – Sterling by Cheryl Dragon

Sterling New Year (Men of Alaska, #1)

Melody’s stuck in Sterling, Alaska over the holidays, sewing custom dresses for her friend’s wedding. She’ll do anything for her friends and is determined to be the best maid of honor she can be. There are just a few very sexy distractions.

Dale, Jason, and Ryan are lovers with an eye out for the right woman to complete their family. They’re happy to let Melody use space to make the dresses, but Dale especially doesn’t expect the perfect woman for them to show up in their small town. How are they going to explain Sterling’s unusual relationships. Even so, the trio is definitely interested in more than simply helping out with the wedding but can they win Melody over?

Melody has never been anywhere like Sterling—where group relationships are a tradition. She can’t pass up the experience of three hot men in bed but rearranging her life for them, or any man, is a ridiculous idea. Normal marriages don’t last and she’s had repeat wedding dress clients to prove it. What the quad has is more than sex but they have a lot of baggage to sort through for her to make it a Sterling New Year.

Goodreads

Amazon

I bought this book.

I have found a new genre that I love called Reverse Harem.  SO when I saw this book and this author was listed as a RH series I jumped.

This book is about Ryan, Dale and Jason.  They are all in a relationship but looking for the right woman to fill out their needs.

Enter Melody to the little town in Alaska.  She is coming up early to help her best friend Isla before her wedding.  As soon as she steps foot in the town, the men are prowling but our trio has already put a claim on her.

The guys can see that Melody is the right woman with her sass and spirit but she is not about to be stuck cooking and cleaning for one man let alone 3!!  The guys take the time to get her to understand that they want her for her and not for her maid service.

They slowly begin to chip away her icy thoughts towards a ménage style life and look to the men to be everything she could ever want and more.

I liked the story and was able to sit and get it read in a couple hours.  If you are looking for a spicy afternoon, give this series a try.

A lover of unusual things, Cheryl Dragon enjoys writing unique stories with sinfully hot erotic romance or suspenseful mainstream paranormals.

#WOTR19 #SeriesStarter #ThrowBackReview – Soul Journey by Miranda Shanklin

Soul Journey (Soul Series Book 1)

It has been many lifetimes since the cycle began.

The cycle that still haunts Annisa Lawson.

A spell cast in desperation to help, which only caused heartache.

Now, Annisa has found her way out of the varying repeats of her past; only to bring more danger to herself, and those around her. Now she must learn to survive with the help of her friends: Chase, Penelope, and Landon have all gone through each life cycle with Annisa. Sometimes helping, sometimes hindering. Now that Annisa has broken the cycle of their collective punishment, she finds that she needs her friends more than ever to keep their enemies, known, and unknown, at bay. As the group of friends learn of their souls’ journeys through their many life cycles, they must also learn to control the magick they have discovered within themselves and each other, in order to defeat the most feared assassin in their world.

Goodreads

This is a fun, quick read with a blast of supernatural! The book is categorized as YA (I believe because of the age of the characters) but is more on the NA side (as there are some adult situations that at times make it a little more adult-y). First, this cover is gorgeous and super eye catching and second, the synopsis sounds like a great read. I am a sucker for just about anything paranormal. I dive into this story head first and before I knew it was the end! The author was very clear with the world and character building. This is a story of witches that basically are reincarnated and go through life cycles over and over again. The reason they stand out is that the four main characters are cursed and have to not repeat past mistakes…but not in this life time. Annisa finally makes a decision that breaks this punishment but now the punishment is over they are faced with a lot of situations that no one can really help them with as they have never made it this far in past lives. One of the things that I didn’t care too much for was the fact that the four teens break the punishment with almost no struggle (well, some teen angst) and as they come together they don’t really have any struggles on a teen level anymore. So I feel like there could have been a little more of a story with some other types of struggles but that didn’t make me stop reading. The bond the teens form is unbreakable and just works. The villains in this story are some of my favorite! And once they are introduced into the story you will totally understand why. As for the story as a whole, I am definitely going to continue as I would like to see what other types of struggles and issues the teens come up against. I am looking forward to how the story progresses and how the author continues to grow. Super intrigued here!!!!
