#WOTR18 – #Review – Corner (Hallow Brothers Book 4) by Tricia Anderson

Corner (Hallow Brothers Book 4)

 

Josiah Hallow carries the weight of the world on his shoulders. Literally. Between keeping his family safe as the head of the Hallows, training his six younger brothers for their individual turns in the MMA cage, and guarding his mother’s amulet from the creatures who want to use it to take control of the world, his sanity is about to break.

Mating with the pure Sarah Merit, an overly-religious school teacher whose body makes every fiber of Josiah’s being stand at attention, could finally push him over the edge. Unfortunately, despite the all-consuming sex that blazes between the pair, it isn’t enough to convince Sarah to live with him so he can protect her, as well.

When Josiah learns the secret Sarah is keeping from him, he makes a deal with the pair of vampires who run the MMA promotion the family fights for in an attempt to save her. But will he be able to save her again when Sarah is kidnapped and taken to Josiah’s grandfather, Atticus, the vicious alpha of a pack of werewolves in Maine? And what will Sarah do when she finds out the sexy corner of the Hallow Brothers is a werewolf, too?

Oh Josiah! *swoon* This series just gets better and better. When I read the first book I knew I was hooked. It was steamy, witty, full of angst, and of course there are SHIFTERS!!!! What I expected from the series is that each brother would go through their mating and would have a different story with getting their mates to understand it and a different MMA fight. What I did not expect was for the story to develop in a way that continually pulls you into another story. There are new characters that come into each book and now we have vampires, an ancient magic with the Heka, the wolves from their father’s pack, and tons of craziness. This story has blown up (in an incredible way)! One of the things I love most about this story is that we get to go back into the other book to see Josiah dealing with the events up to his mating that don’t happen until this book. The way they overlap and give us more depth into the story previous is amazing. It makes the world building just that much better. The brothers all have their quirks and I feel like as I get to know them in the books and their mates I can relate something about them to myself or other people I know. Plus, have I said anything about them being shifters? Cuz they are HAWT MMA SHIFTERS!!!! And Sarah, Josiah’s mate….she a badass too and an MMA fighter! I love these books! I love the twists!!! Sooooo looking forward to the next!!!!!!!!! Bring it on, Tricia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#WOTR18 – #Review – Heavyweight (Hallow Brothers Series 3) by Tricia Andersen

Heavyweight

 

Samuel Hallow is desperately in love. However, he knows his family won’t condone his relationship with his boyfriend, Henry. The brothers mate for life and neither man has had the mystical tattoo appear that binds them to the one chosen for them.

Delilah, Henry’s lifelong friend, comes to town and Samuel is consumed with unexplained lust. He and Henry both sleep with her and the tattoo appears on all three of them, marking the trio as mates for eternity. He nearly loses the others when he confesses his true nature – that he, like his six brothers, are werewolves. Although Delilah and Henry are angry and obsessed with their careers, they can’t stay out of his bed.

Can he protect his lovers from the vampires who hunt them, who want to use them to get possession of Momma Hallow’s ancient amulet? And will the Hallow Brothers stand united when they discover that Henry, the man Samuel loves, embodies an ancient evil magic, hell bent on conquering the world?

This book is complete blissful madness! SAM!!!!  I absolutely love his story. He is a big bad wolf with a super sweet side that no one really knows about….except for Henry!!! While hiding his true feelings from his family he is faced with a fight that he really has to get ready for. Leroy has brought on new partners for the promotions and they are all rubbing the Hallows the wrong way. In the meantime Sam continues to see Henry but is getting very frustrated as the fates won’t allow him to keep Henry forever as a mate. The tension is getting high because two of his other brothers have mated….now it is only a matter of time. But Dee comes into the picture and Boom! We have a trio of mates! Now to explain this to the family, lol! As the story unfolds we find that there is a lot more to Momma Hallow’s amulet and that there are others that are after it. Henry ends up having an evil magic in his blood that he and the brothers didn’t know about. There are more murders and they are getting closer and closer to home. Just when I didn’t think you could put another twist into the storyline the author does an amazing job of shoving one right in your face! This is truly an amazing series with LOTS of stuff going on so there is NEVER a dull moment. It’s an absolute page turner and I cannot wait to get into Josiah’s story next and find out about this magic that consumes Henry, and more about the amulet, and more about the vampires….what I am saying here is that there is so much more going on that going on to the next story right away is a must! I promise, you will love the Hallow brothers as much as I do!

#WOTR18 #NewRelease #Review #Paranormal #Mythology #MMA – Blood Lust, The Gods of DC Book #1 by Tricia Andersen

Blood Lust (The Gods of DC Book 1) by [Andersen, Tricia]

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.

Blood Lust by Tricia Andersen

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.

#WOTR – #Review – Welterweight by Tricia Andersen

 

Welterweight

Caleb Hallow doesn’t need anyone. All he needs is to dominate in the MMA cage and become world champion. His plans are derailed when he wakes up with a mysterious tattoo of his ancestors after a one-night stand with his opponent’s ex-girlfriend, Meg Riley. Sharing the mark with her joins them as mates for eternity. Can Caleb deal with Meg for the rest of his life? Can he keep her safe from his past as he falls deeply in love with her? And will she stay by him when she finds out he is actually a werewolf?
It was just a fling, a chance to get revenge on her cheating ex. At least that’s what Meg Riley tries to convince herself. But the indescribable pull that draws her to the dark, dangerous Caleb Hallow tells her differently. Although she is furious when she finds the strange tattoo on her back after their night together, and even though he tells her some convoluted story about him being a werewolf, she can’t stay away from him. She can’t stop herself from falling for him. When her ex threatens Caleb’s life, how far will Meg go to save him? Will she be willing to sacrifice her life for his?

 

Goodreads

 

First things first…Yes, yes, yes! Shifter MMA fighters? Hello?! You don’t even have to read anymore of the review! Just read Welterweight for yourself! But if you must continue…Basically we have our two main characters, Caleb and Meg. Caleb is all about the one night stands. Ain’t got time for relationships and all that mess. Meg is “committed” to her on and off again boyfriend, Austin. He treats her like crap but she keeps going back because she is soooo in love with him. One night Meg breaks it off with Austin and ends up looking for a one night stand, you know, the one that is gonna make Austin mad. What she wasn’t prepared for was tall, dark, and yummy who she basically climbs in the club. It’s even better because Caleb and Austin are set to fight each other too. Caleb and Meg  just cannot get enough of each other. This insatiable pull is so intense! After a crazy night Caleb tries to do the wam bam thank you ma’am and leaves but Meg wakes up with a tattoo and goes on a crazy hunt for Caleb. From here on out we find that they are mated but neither of them want this. They hate each other, right? But this pull of the mating just won’t let it happen. They are basically carbon copies of each other. Both are so independent and full of themselves. The fighting and bickering…then the “special time” *wags eyebrows* will keep you wanting to know more about them. As they are coming to terms with the mating, things go awry. I can’t give you any other spoilers but if I can give you any indication of how good this story is, I read this in one sitting. I just had to know what was going on, who was behind it all, and if they were going to come out together. All the characters introduced are going to make great characters for other books and I am hoping to see more of the craziness that is Caleb and Meg. Bring it on Tricia Andersen! Lovin it!!!

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

My baby daddy and my book!!  YAY!!  I finally get my HEA.  Granted Tricia had to change my name in the book to protect the “innocent” but rest assured its totally my book!!

In Sam’s book we got a bit of a cross over into Joe’s book with Sarah.  We knew she was a teacher and a fighter.  We knew the guys loved seeing the oldest brother fall and fall hard just like they did.

Joe is crazy with a desire and want that he has no understanding of lately.  He is feeling a pang of jealousy when he sees his brothers and their mates. He doesn’t have time for all that mating nonsense since he was trusted to care for the family being the eldest.  However, the fates give you what you need when you least expect it.  When Sarah walks into his life at his aunt’s funeral, he is stunned stupid.

Sarah is good friends his with crazy, religious aunts.  She prays with them and knows all about the deviant nephews they have.  When she sees Joe, she realizes he has been the stars of her naughty dreams lately.  The two have a crazy chemistry in the sheets but seem to clash A LOT out of the sheets.

Sarah is a good girl where as Joe is a cussing angry man….errr….werewolf!  Yes, Joe needs to have a nut punch and yes, his brother serve him up with Karma.  The speech they give him, which was the speech he gave them about a mate, was PRICELESS!!

The couple have A LOT to figure out, but they are still fighting against the vampires AND the other werewolf pack from Maine.  There is a lot of stuff happening to move the story line forward, but the book FLEW.  I was stunned at how it all flows and how happy my heart was.  Joe was a tough nut to crack but once he finally opens, he is a fluffy wolf at my feet…errr…Sarah’s feet.

When and Why did you start to write?

I’ve been writing since I was in preschool, since before I could put words together to make a story. I write because I don’t know what life without writing would be like. I write because I love sharing the stories in my head.

What authors do you always read or suggest to others?I

I love Karen Marie Moning

What is the most surprising thing you have found out with the writing process?

I love the way writing evolves the longer I write. What I wrote five years ago is nothing like what I write now and I’m sure what I write five years from now will be totally different.

What are you working on now?

I am working on Bantamweight (Hallow Brothers Series #5), Compromised (the final book of the Black Irish Series) and a paranormal/Greek god romance

When writing are you a pantser or plotter?

I’m a little bit of both. I like having a general idea where the book is going and get a timeline established. Then I go for it.
