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

This series gets better and better with each book that comes out. I find myself falling harder and harder for each of Ariel guys.  We get to see her relationships grow with the guys and her father.

Ariel is finally in a good spot she found her true family. These guys will do anything for her, anything to make her happy and protect her which is something she has never had in her lifetime. She is building relationships with all her guys and even her dad. She has a job she loves at Fortune’s for the Unfortunate.

Ariel loves each of these guys and finds that she is just as overprotective of her guys as they are of her. She will do anything to keep them from hurting even if it means she hurts herself. There are some new characters introduced in this book some are going to be a good thing for Ariel and her family and others could be deadly for them.

Just like with Ariel I am falling more and more in love with each of these guys. Even though Ariel is closer to some of her guys than the others I am enjoying her learning more things about each one.  I have to say I love when I get to see a different side of one of them I never saw before.

I am so ready for the next book. There are so many new developments and I want to know were things are going to go. I also want to see these relationships grow and evolve.

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

Friends…..This book….Jesus….so much happens.  We finally see Ariel and the guys taking things “to the next level”.  We learn more about the council and just how effing awful they are….why I was shocked I have no clue.  We get at few more twists and turns thrown at us but most of all, we see the coven tightening up and getting ready for a war of sorts!!!  Dude this book I told you was insane!!!

Dude this book!!  First up, yes things progress for Ariel and some members of the coven but what I loved was her flat out admitting her fears about intimacy with some of the guys.  I loved seeing the guys reassure her she is it and they are good with how thing progress.  But I Floved hearing words being declared between Ariel and the guys!!  Seriously this was a step in the right direction for everyone!!

The council….man oh man…we get a new council member who will be a good person for our coven to confide in but we also see the council being shady AF which is pretty much what they do right???  The stuff they stir up during a dinner party….grrrrrr…….things are not going to be smooth for Ariel and the guys but Damn Uncle Q didn’t punch anyone??  Could he be settling down now that the has his girl?  LOL  RIGHT!!! I highly doubt it.

Rain is still Rain….crazy and scary but head over heals for his daughter.  But the new men in Ariel’s life, who also love Rain, will be an interesting mix to the story line!!  I told ya TWISITS people.

What I am so worried about is what is in those manila folders? What did the guys find out about the OTHER major plot twist?  What other plot twists can Mary throw at us??  FYI Plot Twist named Raven is a hottie buuuuuut yeah he can go away anytime now!!

#WOTR19 #NewRelease #Paranormal #RH #Dark #TriggerWarnings #Shifters – Ashes: Book One in the River Ash Pack by Mary Martel

Ashes: Book One in the River Ash Pack

Cordelia has never known anything but the safety of her fathers guarded compound where she’s lived her entire life. A life that, as the alphas daughter, has always been a privileged one, albeit an incredibly sheltered one.
Until one night, life as she knows it, is flipped entirely upside down when she’s promised to another alpha in order to buy safety for her father’s pack. This doesn’t exactly sit well for Cordelia seeing as she has different plans for her life, even if she doesn’t know what those plans are just yet. Out of fear of what she doesn’t want her life to become, she does the unthinkable and tells her father the one thing he’ll never tolerate from anyone in his pack, especially not his daughter. She tells him no.
As a result, Cordelia learns just what kind of depraved man and alpha her father is and is left a broken, bleeding mess because of it.
After finding kindness and compassion from two strange men who show up at the compound and help her when she is no longer capable of helping herself, Cordelia does the only thing she thinks she can do in order to survive and not be stuck in a world of abuse and misery.
She runs.
Unfortunately for Cordelia, she doesn’t make it very far before she finds herself in trouble again and at the mercy of another male with alpha tendencies. This alpha also comes with a brother by blood and one by choice.
The problem is, Cordelia’s not so sure she could ever find a place in a pack again after everything she’s survived. She won’t have long to figure it out though because, no matter the cost, her father is determined to find her and bring her home.

Warning – Due to certain sensitive sexual subject matter and abusive situations, this book may contain triggers for some people.
It’s also a Reverse Harem book.

Goodreads

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

Jesus lemme get my head straight after reading this book.  If there are a few things you need to know about Mary and her stories here they are…..Her men love FIERCE, Her Women are NOT WEAK, The chemistry is crazy in all the right places, and there will be blood…LOL …but I am serious!!

Now if you read the trigger warning I will say it’s not AS ROUGH of a scene as I was expecting or have read in the past but friends, its hard.  Its hard because how can someone who should love and protect you, do that to you!!  Its also quickly done and done well so we feel for Cordelia, but mainly so we can understand the shape that Cal and Luca find her in…it was bad…….

Cal, Luca and Darius……they are all so special to Cordelia for their own reasons, but this book is owned by Darius.  Dude, he was so scary and then so sweet but so fierce.  I mean I don’t think I knew how menacing he was until we see him with his old pack….dang he was hawt!!!

Cal and Luca long for their time for Cordelia but understand and show true patience to be with their girl because make no bones about it, SHE. IS. THEIR. GIRL!

Seeing the story of the impending war due to everything that plays out in the book is making me on edge because the 4 of them need to be on the same page to stick together and to make sure no one feels left out of this unusual mating!!

Pretty Complicated (Mercy Motorcycle Club Book 2)

Way over his duties as a recruit for the Mercy Motorcycle Club, Stephan takes advantage of the fact they are gone on a run and decides to go off and find something meaningful to do for the night that doesn’t revolve around the Club.
It’s too bad for him that the night happens to be Halloween night.
And, all the crazies come out to play on Halloween. That’s just the way of the world.
On his way out of town and away from his Club, he spots a place filled with everything people would want for Halloween. They’ve got a scary maze in a cornfield, a haunted barn and a cemetery filled with promises of darkness.
He thought to drive right past it, but after spotting several motorcycles belonging to members of his Club, one in particular that he had feelings for, he decided to stop and check things out. In doing so he changed the entire course of his life and witnessed things he could never take back.
It was Halloween. And, as much as he’d always hated it, this year would make him love it and he’d never forget what too place that night.

Oh Hash!!! *Wipes the tear away* Oh Steph!! *Wipes the drool away*

I was so excited when Mary said we would get a look at the start of one of my FAV Mercy MC Couples who ….ugly snot cry starting….are no more. If you have not read the Dollhouse series, then I can’t tell you why they aren’t together but if you have then feel free to cry not so silently with me
.
If you haven’t read this series, this is a quick intro of the Mercy MC guys. You get to meet the biggest dick EVER AKA Batey and one of the scariest but is he really scary guys AKA King. But mainly we get to see our 2 prospects finally facing their feelings for each other.

I loved this quick snippet into their beginning but honestly WANT MORE as any true crazy fan would beg for!!

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!!!!!!!!

The Ties That Bind by Mary Martel

The Ties That Bind by Mary Martel

Goodreads

The Ties That Bind is book 4 in the Ariel Kimber Series.
Ariel Kimber isn’t like most seventeen year old girls. She’s different because she’s a witch with magic and it’s rare for females to hold magic anymore. She’s settling into her new place amongst her coven of guys while she’s settling into her new home at the same time.
The Council’s appearance into their lives has put everyone on edge. With good reason. Ariel is forced to meet with one of them on a regular basis so that they can learn from each other. Really, though, they just want to get to the bottom of where Ariel came from and she is more than happy to comply with them.
Because there is one thing she wants more than anything else in the world, and that’s to find the man who has been searching for her for years. Her biological father.
And Ariel is willing to go through any and every thing to find him.

This is the fourth book in a slow burn Reverse Harem Series

My Review –

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

Man, this book…in a word….INTENSE!! There is a lot that goes on this this book plus a hella-lotta of set up for the next few books. You better buckle in friends because shit is about to get crazy!!

Before I begin, I gotta say I LOVED seeing Ariel spend time with Dash *Blushing* I dunno what it is about him but he is just *Sigh* so sweet. I also loved Ariel starting to date the other guys she hasn’t bonded with. We see the bonds she has with Her Salt & Pepper Twins, Uncle Panty Thief, Tyson, and even Dash but Her date with Damien…seriously put him on my radar!!! Then her time with Julian even if it was brief…..Yeah I loved it!!

You guys so much happens in this book…like for real…so much. Rain makes an appearance and I am still not sure if he is the wonderful Father Ariel is hoping for OR a Sociopath…like I am on the fence and you will be too when you read this book. We see more of the Council, Chucky and even *GASP* Annabelle appears in this book. *Grumbles under my breath about that skank*.

But the biggest reveal comes when we find out about Ariel and her Biological Witch Family….WHOOOOOOO that is some heavy stuff!!! But I think learning more and more about the Council gives me the chills because Ariel is gonna have some serious problems if they find out her true nature as are her seven coven boyfriends!

I cannot wait for more because this series is getting just so much better and more complex with each story!!

Tray , Hells Harlem #2 by JM Walker

Tray by J.M. Walker

Goodreads

Despair. Hunger. Pain. Need.
It started the moment she bumped into me.
Ecstasy. Danger. Seduction. Terror.
She was off-limits, but it didn’t stop me from wanting her.
My life was empty. My thoughts were dark. My heart was stone.
Feeling unwanted for most of my life, I didn’t know where I belonged or what my purpose was. He was all I had until she came along and brought out emotions I never knew were possible. She was innocent. Pure. Untouched. She was the daughter of a rival club member, but that didn’t stop us. It only heightened the desire, the passion we felt. We were happy…until someone she trusted made a move that no one saw coming…

My Review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Holy hells bells friends. Strap in for a bumpy, sex filled ride with our favorite Mistress of Teasing!!
Tray…man I loved him in Greyson’s book. I so wanted to know more about this fun guy. I was a bit shocked at all that he was hiding from us seeing how fun and light he was with Eve. He has major layers people. He is dealing with his guilt over treating his best friend so badly and hoping to salvage their friendship when he meets Zillah. He is stunned stupid at her beauty and her sassy mouth!!
Zillah has lead a bit of a sheltered life. Her dad is a bad ass MC President who will not let any man look at his daughter as anything other than HIS LITTLE GIRL!! She is naïve to the way of the club and to the way of seasoned men but when she sees Tray, she is hooked. She needs to see where this connection will go.
The two have an insta-love-ish story but it’s also built on mutual respect and their love of horror movies! Tray hides a little bit about himself because he wants to make sure someone loves him for him and not the bad ass biker everyone thinks he is. Along the way we find out someone is stalking the couple and it makes them both a bit on edge because who would be following them.
When Zillah gets a call and the Hell’s Harlem get some news all the shit erupts in an epic battle of good guys vs bad guys!! The why for the stalking is crazy and what happens later is even crazier!! Dude but Zillah is one bad ass chick. I have a total girl crush on her and you will see why when you read it!
JM got a few emails from me yelling at her because she made me cry A LOT in those parts of the book…good tears, happy ears and of course, sad tears!! The epilogue and bonus epilogue ….have tissues because damn it they killed me.
I am so happy with Tray’s story but my heart aches for Catch…it just aches…..but who is this River kid and when do we get to read about his!!???

Reviving Kendall by Brandy Slaven

Reviving Kendall by Brandy Slaven

Goodreads

“I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart.”

Growing up, I’ve always lived on the wrong side of the tracks. I’m used to the stares, name calling, and disrespect. A tragic accident that leaves me short three of the only people I’ve ever loved, has me devastated enough to try to end my own life. Just when I think there’s no hope, I find a reason to live again, or four of them as a matter of fact. Lucas, Maverick, Teagan, and Goose. But what happens when those bonds are tested? I’m not so sure that I’m strong enough to take yet another blow to the heart. My name is Kendall Davis and what if my story doesn’t have a happy ending?

*This is the first book in a Contemporary Reverse Harem Trilogy.

My Review

I received this book from a friend.

SHUT UP!! #WhyChoose is why I LOVE RH!!! My friend Mary was all “DUDE you need these books in your life” and then she gifted them to me. HOLY HELLS BELLS!!! I sat and read 50% before I knew it. Kendall is so awesome and feisty and yet so broken and damaged. The guys IE Mav, Teagan, Goose/Grant and Lucas made my heart just beat so fast and so hard for each of them. Each guy is so different but such a needed part to make Kendall whole again.

Kendall is the only girl who has the strength and NERVE to take on these 4 different guys. “The Quad”, as she calls them, are sweet and hard headed but so in love with our girl. They are so confused and yet they can’t wait to try and make her theirs separately and as a group.
Kendall has had so much hardship losing her parents, her nana, her dying grandpa and her VanPelt brothers AKA her boyfriends. She is just living and dealing with a jealous rival named Derrick. Kendall has no idea why he hates her yet he won’t leave her alone.

The Quad comes to her restaurant and she is none to pleased at their come on so gives them the business!! She may live in a trailer park and everyone might THINK she is less than, but she lives by a certain code of honor.

As the story unfolds, we see the guys showing up and helping her out but individually stealing kisses and moments. When a fun trip to the mountains turns sour, Kendall turns her back and runs. When her crappy life gets eve worse, she is shut off to the world until her guys come back and refuse to leave her.

When the 5 decide to give things a try, we can see the stress of the unknown disappear. When the decide to openly claim each other as THEIRS, we can see the group becoming closer and tighter. I can’t wait to read the net book and have it downloaded to start right away!!!

Secrets by Aleatha Romig

Goodreads

The twisted and intriguing storytelling that you loved in Consequences and Infidelity is coming back at you with an all-new alpha anti-hero in the dark romance series Web of Sin, by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen aboveground.

Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.

Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.

She just didn’t know.

My father is now gone.

The city and the underbelly are now mine.

The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

*Secrets is book one of the Web of Sin trilogy.

My Review – 

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

Holy crap on a cracker!!! Gah!! This book!!!! #Anxiety #NeedADrink #GodIsHeSexy

Sterling is so alpha, so domineering and so yummy yet I know he is going to break my heart at some point in this series!! I can already feel it. There are so many secrets and things he isn’t telling Kennedy/Araneae my anxiety is through the roof!!! But can we talk about how much of an ass he is and yet he only followed her instruction…Snicker……the airplane scene is the BEST!!!!

Kennedy was thrown a huge curve ball in the beginning of the story and we know once the Sparrow family finds her things will go dark and bad. Ugh but why does bad have to come in such a yummy package!!! I feel for her because she is a caring person and it seems caring for others is the weakness that will get her killed. I only hope she can finally listen to Sterling and realize he is the one trying to protect her from others who want to harm her….or is he?????????

This story is an amazing set up for what is surely to come. The final scene has me going “Oh snap!!” I mean gahhhh!!!! I am dying to know what exactly will happen because it seems Sterling didn’t tell our girl the whole story about what is going on and what is happening.

To the Novus pack, the word of their leader, their Laird, is the law. With compelling gray eyes and long dark hair, Raider Black rules his pack with intelligence and ruthlessness. To cement the security of his pack, Black has committed to mate another Packleader’s daughter. But he’s finding it impossible to fight his attraction to the pack’s alluring new Seer, claiming her as his own.

Sweet, fearless, and unintentionally funny, Theo upends Black’s world and pushes the boundaries of his rules. How far is Black willing to go, and what will he sacrifice, to save both his pack and the human Seer who’s found a way not only into his bed, but his heart?

My Review

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

Before I start this review, I am going to let you in on a little secret. I am a paranormal whore. I love love love paranormal AND shifters are like the icing on the cake for me. So, if you write a paranormal and I read it, I will judge/rate harshly. Its my favorite genre and its my go to read when I want something to read. With all that stated up front, you gotta know what I am about to say is deep and true to my soul……I. Loved. This. Book!! Like WTF!! It blew me outta the damn water. I will admit I was a bit skeptical about the whole Lady Goddess stuff at the beginning. I wondered if I would dig it or if it would be something I found to be an OK read. FRIENDS, this book rocked my world!! Like legit, ROCKED ME HARD!!!!

I absolutely loved the world M. Jayne (Melanie) created. I loved her mythology. I loved her side characters and seriously I am hard crushing over Lore BUT I am also scared outta my mind at him. Raider Black is our main character and he is so tough and bad ass but so tender when he wants to be but also please remember he is uber bad ass!!! Theo is thrust into this NEW world. She stumbles but runs into it with eyes wide open. When she is given her new title in the Pack, she tried to be 100% the best she can be. Her friends Solle and Conal are the best companions for her. They are loyal to Black but guide her and help her understand the human world is not at all like the Pack’s world.’

The story was so wonderfully written. I seriously kept saying “one more chapter before bed” and then the next thing I knew it was 11PM and I and 10% of the book left!! Might as well just read it and appreciate the reason for being grumpy the next day was because of the wonderful story telling. I thought the flow of the story was amazing. You were always wondering what would happen next. I know the angst of the two main characters fighting their pull and draw to one another was amazing. When they finally give in to one another it only made their bond THAT much stronger. The character banter was hilarious, but the emotional draw of the characters made me so excited for this new series!

I am so excited for the next book and wonder where the story will take us because I am totally hooked on the Novus Pack!! #TeamNovus #TeamLore #TeamSweetBabyJesusThoseWereHotScenes

Blood Lust by Tricia Andersen

Blood Lust by Tricia Andersen

Goodreads

She doesn’t believe she has a soul.
She believes it was stolen from her when that bastard turned her into the creature she is now.
But little does she know, she does. What is there isn’t dark and twisted, defiled by the lust for blood. She is pure and loving, with a body and attitude that arouses me every moment of the day. And I will move universes and defy my father and mother to make her into something I’m worthy of loving, someone that will stay by my side through eternity.
I will fight the forces of the gods to make her mine. I won’t stop until she belongs to me forever. And how am I, just a mere fighter, going to do that?
Because, baby, I’m a god.

My Review –

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

HOLY MOLY this book knocked my socks off!!! Paranormal meets the Greek Gods?? Uhm YES PLEASE!!! When Tricia told me about this book, I was super excited. When I finally got the book, I was ecstatic. I can’t say enough how much I loved reading this book. But remembering all the Gods from college, I was like “OMG Yes I remember them.”

Juliet is a typical vampire looking to score some blood. Well our little vampire is a little more than usual because she actually cares about who she drains dry. She strolls into the underground MMA fight looking for meal, when she sees the most beautiful and sexy man EVAH!! She is all “Game on” with this one. She knows he might be a bit more of a challenge, but she is ready for it. She is stunned when all of a sudden, the man of hour is right there at the bar hitting on her …along with others things he does with her at the bar *snickers*

Ares, the God of War, is mesmerized by the vampire at the club. He knows she will be able to “handle his appetites” so he dives into a night of fun with the little minx. He is loving spending time with her because she challenges him at every turn and he loves it. He can’t get enough of her telling HIM, the God of War, No!! I love the banter the two have because they cracked me up a lot.
When Ares and Juliet discover there are serious emotions at play, they both freak. The last person Ares loves was Aphrodite and we all know how wonderful their relationship turned out….not good if you weren’t aware. The last person who Juliet loved broke her heart and turned her into the creature she is now. Love and Trust is not something these two people can willingly accept from others.

His family hates her and wants her dead. His ex has become a bit too clingy and needy…ya know I don’t want you but I don’t want anyone else to have you type of chick *eye roll*….her maker is all about claiming what is his again after hundreds of years, PLUS the vampire hunter is closing in on Juliet. There is so much action and so many plot twists you never see what will happen next!! I seriously hope we get another book really soon and I am BEGGING for it to be Aletha because I just loved her so hard but Pan would be pretty funny to see which nymph captures his heart.

Book 1-

Warning: this series is intended for a mature audience. It contains violence, murder, prostitution, foul language, suicide and sexual content.
This is a first part in a series. The books are meant to be read in order.

“Do you know what the funny thing about Mercy is?” Cap asked her. Before she could answer he spoke again, “It can be a cold, hard, unforgiving bitch.”

Duchess runs The Dollhouse. An old, two story mansion she recently purchased in an attempt to create a safe home for herself and her girl Franky, something neither of them have ever had. A safe home is not all The Dollhouse is though. The downstairs is a bar and the upstairs is home to something much seedier. A modern day brothel. A brothel Duchess is the proprietress of.
Duchess is a cold, hard, tough as nails woman with a murky past. Her whole life revolves around taking care of her girls and keeping them safe.
Life at The Dollhouse is irrevocably altered when its sole neighbor, the Mercy MC, strolls through the front doors of the bar.
From that moment on Duchess’s fate is intertwined with theirs. She tries to fight it to no avail. They claimed her and her girls and that’s all there is to it.
She gets a family she never wanted. Friends she never needed. And a lover she never expected. She also suffers loss and has no qualms about killing anybody who stands in her way or threatens her or her girls.

This is the first part in a series and it is not a happy go lucky story

Another girl moves in. A girl who is most certainly not fit to work at the Dollhouse, or, at least not on her back upstairs.
While Duchess’s relationship with the boys from the Mercy MC grows stronger every day her relationship with Cap is somewhat strained. They both find that they want different things out of life and Duchess struggles to come to terms with it.
The bonds she shares with Franky and Stanley are put to the test and when it’s all said and done things will never be the same between them.
Love. Loyalty. Friendship. Trust. Family. It’s all put to the test.
Ties will forever be severed and lives will be lost.

Book 3 –

This is the dark, short story of a chance encounter between two young women that will forever change their lives.
At the age of seventeen, after surviving a heartbreaking, soul wrenching childhood at the hands of a monster, Francesca Wright finds herself drugged out of her mind and playing the whore in a house of sin.
Libby is a young woman who’s been through it all and came out the other side stronger than ever. By chance she spots Francesca in the whore house. Immediately she’s drawn to the dainty, blue-eyed girl with the face of an angel. She wants nothing more than to take her far away from the hell hole she’s in and keep her safe. Being the strong, stubborn, determined woman that she is, she sets about making Francesca’s escape a possibility.
Through death, horror, and heartbreak an unshakeable bond stronger than blood is forged between the two.

When she’s not busy with Captain and the club she’s dealing with the many problems her girls have. And they seem to have a never ending string of problems.
Most especially Franky. The blue eyed, blonde, whore with the face of an angel can’t seem to catch a break even if she tried. Her life is a disaster filled with one drama after the next.
Duchess has got her hands full and her work certainly cut out for her.

Book 6 –
“I was everyone’s version of a wet dream.”

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

Heads up! By the time I have written this review, I have read this book twice.  Yes friends TWICE!!

So much happens in this book like our Pepper Twin feeling less than his brother.  Like our Salt Twin getting angry at his twin for upsetting their Pretty Girl annnnnd of course Quint being a dominant jackass…wait never mind I love him when he is dominant…ok an over stepping jackass because he forgets Ariel is in control of the 7 relationships…not him.

I love Quint for trying give Ariel good memories of all the holidays she missed as a child.  I also love that he goes over the top in creating these memories that generally make her wanna punch him in the face…LOL  But *Dreamy sigh* he is Quint the Coven Leader.  Taking care of his family is his job and he takes it very serious!

Abel is having an issue with missing Ariel but doesn’t know how to tell her because he feels less then the others including his brother.  The scene with Ariel and Abel fighting broke my heart because she loves him so much and he is just as insecure as she is with all this love stuff.

What scenes I loved the most : the guys feeling a bit freer to touch Ariel and them letting her know they are ready and willing for “more” *Wink* but the showdown with Dash, Quint and Ariel at the end of the book about how “ready” she is….a speechless Quinton is a rare thing!!!!

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

Oh Hash!!!  *Wipes the tear away*  Oh Steph!!  *Wipes the drool away*

I was so excited when Mary said we would get a look at the start of one of my FAV Mercy MC Couples who ….ugly snot cry starting….are no more.  If you have not read the Dollhouse series, then I can’t tell you why they aren’t together but if you have then feel free to cry not so silently with me.

If you haven’t read this series, this is a quick intro of the Mercy MC guys.  You get to meet the biggest dick EVER AKA Batey and one of the scariest but is he really scary guys AKA King.  But mainly we get to see our 2 prospects finally facing their feelings for each other.

I loved this quick snippet into their beginning but honestly WANT MORE as any true crazy fan would beg for!!
