I should have said no.
When they asked me to take over this assignment and protect her with my life.
When at the sight of her, my heart beat like a war drum inside my chest.
When those light green eyes met mine and the world stopped.
I should’ve—but didn’t. And now it’s too late because I’ve broken the rules and tasted the forbidden fruit.
I’ll never let her go.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Guuurl do I love your books. They are so naughty and steamy they melt my kindle. I have missed reading your stuff because life so when I got this I was thrilled!!
This story is a sexy as hell cop and of course a virgin. Now don’t go all hating on that story because its awesomely good!! Yes its cliché but it still rocked out with giant cop c*ck! OOOF I made this filthy already.
The story has suspense and twists like we expect from Elena. It also has her big bad alpha hero, Elijah, looking to do everything to save Ava.
Seriously a great book to read!!!
Elena M. Reyes is the epitome of a Floridian and if she could live in her beloved flip-flops, she would.
As a small child, she was always intrigued by all forms of art: whether it was dancing to island rhythms, or painting with any medium she could get her hands on. Her passion for reading over the years has amassed her with hours of pleasure, but it wasn’t until she stumbled upon fanfiction that her thirst to write overtook her world.
She’s a short and sassy Latina with an adorable pup, a kiddo that keeps her on her toes, and a husband who claims she’ll cause him to go bald prematurely. Lol
Tessa Pride, mate to VC Warrior Jared Kincaid, is doing everything in her power to become a respected Warrior in her own right. Unfortunately, her mate isn’t quite as excited about her passion. Tessa walks into the role with a newfound sense of determination knowing her decisions could end her relationship with the man she loves.
With everything to lose, Tessa steps into the battle of earning the right to walk next to her mate in life, love, and work. Though she is also ready to walk alone if necessary, she will make sure Jared Kincaid regrets that for the rest of his life.
The Mate series delves into the kickass world of the Warriors’ mates and how united, they can make a difference—just like their badass Protectors. Follow along to see how these exceptional women’s newfound freedom affect those around them and which Warrior may or may not support their feisty independent mate’s new and exciting path.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Lord knows I have been in an uproar over my Jared being a douche canoe to his mate Tessa. I mean I have loved this man since book 1 but I was about to jump ship to #TeamCharger. However, after reading this book, I have forgiven him and totally understand the why for his attitude and major dickness…dickness is this a word…anyway…toward Tessa.
Tessa and Jared have always seemed pretty stable but as the series has gone on, we have seen little cracks in their HEA. I mean first when she was turned and then as she wanted to become a VC Warrior. Like Tessa, I was like WTF JACKA$$. But I tell ya, the woman has more patience that I do because she is a people pleaser even if it hurts her in the end. Well this book Tessa is DONE people pleasing and going to start doing HER for HER and if Jared can’t hang welp that is on him.
Jared, the king of funny joke and sexual innuendo is not doing so well right now. He has MAJOR skeletons flying outta the closet and he can’t slam the door fast enough. The poor guy is trying to put out fires without giving away his past but with not dealing with everything PROPERLY he is not putting out the flames but inflaming them.
There were lots of teary moment in this book. Seeing Tessa and Jared dancing around the issues and not really facing the problems out of fear of losing the other one actually made it 100x worse for both of them. Seeing and hearing about the impending bad dudes made the fear even more real for Jared which made him even more of a mess!!
When everything comes to a head, I had tears but seeing and feeling Jared’s pain made it even worse. Friends this book was everything we have needed to see between Jared and Tessa. They were no longer able to hide and no longer able to dance around all the issues.
I love the main series but the Mates series you seem to get more one on one with the OG couples and that makes me so happy!!!
Teresa Gabelman is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the ‘Protectors Series’. When not writing about sexy alpha vampires and the women who drive them crazy she can be found on a lake with a fishing pole/Kindle, at a MMA event or spending a fun evening with family.
Being a full-time writer has allowed Teresa to connect more with readers which is what she loves most about writing. If you find the time she would love to hear from you!

The pair must find strengths within each other to protect one another, otherwise, it will lose everything.
Risky Pleasures is book two in a sexy new series by Vivian Ward where secrets, sex, and money threatens to rip everything apart.
Received a copy of the audio version from the author for an honest review.
This starts right were Risky Gamble left us. Colton is trying to contact Allison after she ran out of the club. He is leaving thoughtful gifts., messages even sets up a date for them but nothing from her. Allison is over it and tries moving on but when she is drunk one night Colton breaks in and takes what is his.
The chemistry between these tow is still explosive. Colton has to prove to Allison they are made for each other. Once again this is a cliffy and I cannot wait to read Risky Love.
The narrator did a good job on this book as well as Risky Gamble. I am not a fan of one narrator for both male and female POV but he did a great job with the different voices and keeping in in the story.

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Where is your favorite place to write and what food must be present?
Perkins Restaurant. Coffee or tea for sure and likely some kind of salad with an indecent amount of ranch dressing.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
I love meeting people who have a passion for the same things as myself. Talking books is what brings me joy, so being able to ignite a passion for my own work is the definition of living the dream for me.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Karen Marie Moning. I would love to sit down and talk to her for just an hour even. She writes such relatable fiction which is not an easy task. I admire her writing style. I feel there’s so much I could learn and glean from her.
What author would you love to write with?
I’m so wary of collaborative writing, but I would absolutely be willing to give it a go with Kim Harrison.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Shortly after my first book was published, my cousin sent me a candid picture of her pre-teen daughter reading it in her room. The look on her face was complete concentration/focus and it actually made me tear up. That was all I ever wanted when I started writing this trilogy; I wanted people to read and enjoy my work. That’s the dream. It’s still surreal to think about it.

Scarlett knows Aaron’s type and wants nothing to do with him. However, with a little push from her friends will Aaron get his way with Scarlett.
I absolutely loved Scarlett she is the sassy redhead and Aaron the hot alpha man stole a piece of my heart. This was such a fun quick read. Aaron and Scarlett had a great connection and very steamy at times.
Vivian Ward is a romance author from St. Louis, Missouri. She pens dark and dirty stories about alpha heroes and strong heroines with emotional HEAs. Vivian is happily married to her real-life Prince Charming who is also her best friend. One of her guilty pleasures is reading and writing smut while indulging in chocolate caramel candies.
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?
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!!
“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?
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.
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!!
