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?

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?

Fear University (Book 1) by Meg Collett

I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire shit either.

My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.

Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ’swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.

I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom.

For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.

But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.


This book is recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.

Susan Griscom writes paranormal and contemporary romance–steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She’s a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.

She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor.

Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.

Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I bought this book and listened to the audio book.

This is a sweet insta love story about town bad boy Reese who comes home after a log absence to recoup after a bad fight.  He is stunned stupid to see the one women he cant seems to shake out of his system still looking as beautiful as he remembered.

Lilly has always had a crush on town bad boy Reese but knew he was not interested in her in any way.  When he comes back to town and starts kissing her ear, she is confused because how can the only person she ever loved be here in town and kissing her ear!!!

The love story is insta love in the fact it moves very quickly, and they are professing their love for one another.  They are trying to hide the relationship from her father who is the town preacher and does not approve.  Reese also worries about Lilly’s reputation in the small town if things get out about what they are doing in the evening *wink*

The couple have a few things to work out like is Reese leaving when he rehabs his injury, what happens when his MMA promoter comes back and what happens when a secret is soon spilled about Lilly!!

If you enjoy insta love stories you will enjoy this book.

I will saw this narration isn’t my favorite.  I almost wonder if I might have enjoyed the book more with me reading vs listening to his voice.

He was just a hapless victim in a bar. At least that was what vampire hunter Dakota Ross thought until the sexy smartass she was drawn to protect was able to keep toe to toe with her as they fought. When she finds a strange tattoo etched into her back after a night of intense, passionate sex, she discovers that he is Ezekiel Hallow, one of seven werewolf brothers. They team up to find Black, who has killed her husband and has the Book of Elvesayd, an artifact Ezekiel desperately needs. Each step on their journey becomes more deadly as they get closer to Black. How far will they go to find the Book? Can Dakota stop Black from taking the life of another man she loves?

I was given this book by the author for my honest opinion

Wow where do I even begin, with the vampire still after the family And Zeke one of the last to not be mated took it upon himself to go out and find this ancient book that’s supposed to help with this issue. The first night of his adventure he went into a bar not knowing it was full of vampires next thing He knew this bad ass biker chick in the leather walks in and kick some major vampire ass. Well after all the vampires were disintegrated and one thing led to another and they were in Zeke’s truck but then they were on their way to the hotel and you can only imagine what happened, they woke up with matching mating tattoos. The goofball brother Finally found his mate and little did he know he was going to be made it with a vampire Hunter of all things. Out to find the book and kill the biggest vampires threat to both their families Zeke and Dakota are off to find it, taking us on a wild ride and you’re gonna want to go on it is amazing.  I freaking love this book I seriously can’t get enough of it I would love I want to read it again and again and again it’s my favorite Hallow so far I just loved it so much.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What a GREAT addition to the continued ARC of this story!!!  OMG  Zeke and Dakota were awesome!!

Zeke is a baby brother in the mix of 7 brothers, so I did not feel we knew a lot about him other then he was a goofball.  So, seeing him take the reigns to protect his ever-growing family made him stand out.  His brothers are all mated and now daddies, so he jumps to try and find THE BOOK they need to keep the pack safe.

Dakota is one tough a$$ chick!!  Her character was amazing.  She is one sister-in-law or daughter-in-law the Hallows will be leaning on when the final war happens.  She has seen all the bad things the vampires are capable of and she has risen from the trauma to be a vampire hunter.

When she stalks into a bar and sees Zeke, they are both stunned and attracted instantly.  When they have a fun night, they wake up, and Zeke has some explaining to do.  We all know what they have buuuut Dakota is not a big believer is fate let alone a fated mate!!

The story goes on and we see Zeke being Dakota’s “side kick” to track down the Vampires with the book they need.  Soon they discover the vampires also have another little hidden gem for world domination so they, of course, decide to ruin that plan as well.

The story is fast paced.  We learn about a society of humans who work together to stop vampires and other bad creatures.  We learn about Dakotas past and hurt which prevents her from moving forward.  We also see Zeke becoming the selfless hero all the Hallows become to protect their mate.

The story was a great addition to the series.  I look forward to each installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.  Baby brother Josh will soooo fall for his mate and we will see what happens with the overall arc of the story.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries  What the Hex Happened (Unfortunate Spells Book 3) by Jennifer Laslie

Blurb
– 
Mortality might kill him if the crazy witch that hexed him doesn’t.

When Ashton finds himself at the wrong end of a powerful witch’s hex, gone is his comfortable life as a bartender at Hallow’s End. With his gift of thrall, he never wanted for beautiful women — human or supernatural — to warm his bed and satiate his hunger. But plagued with mortality, he’s lost his coordination, strength, and the one power that helped him catch a meal.

Gray hairs and body aches are only the first warning signs of a bigger problem. If Ashton can’t break the spell, he’s not sure he’ll make it to next week. Faced with the choice to either relive a mistake or let the hex do him in, he enlists the help of his best friend, Tensley.

Together, they embark on a trip from Texas to New York in search of the one thing they believe can cure Ashton. Only, Ashton can’t tell what’s in more danger, his immortality or the walls he’s put up around his heart. Will he be able to endure the dangers ahead without losing himself to the nightmares of his past?

My Review Woah wow more please,. Ashton is this sexy bartender who not only knows how to flip a bottle , serve a great drink and swoon the panties off a lady but he is also a vampire so what more could you ask for. Ashton could charm any woman he wanted so when he gets a weird feeling leaving work one night but cant see anything he just shakes it off, once he got his eye set of this gorgeous girl to take home and snack on back to his place. Once they arrive he already has a visitor his ex who only wants one thing and that’s for him to turn her into a vampire too which he has refused to do.  So she puts a hex on him making him human. So Ashton and his friend Tensley (who has had a thing for him forever) set off for New York in the cover of darkness to get this stone and turn him back into a vampire. But there are twist and turns that are following them on their journey and some wrenches get tossed into it as well. Will Ashton get turned back into a vampire before its too late or will he give in and turn his ex so get turned back. Oh my goodness this book was so good it keeps you handling on til the very end Ashton is just ahh I totally fell in love with him

Blurb

Tequila, you failed me.

You left me in a terrible haze, and I can’t find my god damn wallet.

Or my left shoe.

How the hell does one lose their shoe?

I have no f*cking clue.

All I know is that my night started out with one thing in mind…to have a little fun.

The problem with that? I can’t remember a damn thing, except one.

Morgan’s soft and needy moans. It’s a sound I will never forget, and just thinking about it makes my heart race and my pulse quicken. And I want to hear it over and over again…I crave it.

But Morgan’s a mystery. The harder I try, the more she resists. There’s one thing she doesn’t know about me though…I’m not one to give up.

I’ll play her game. I’ll let her think she’s won. But in the end, I will have her.

Because all I need is Just One Chance to prove she’s meant for me…

My Review Yes please i need  more Morgan will do anything for her family, she moved out got a job and padded for her classes just to take some of the finacial burden off her parents so that they can focus all of the help on her little brother Toby who ha cerebral palsy. So when she finally had a night off her best friend Marcus i making her get outta her comfort zone and let loose for once in her life, o he’s making her go to a frat party. It’s there that Morgan chooses she’s not doing what she normally does and that she is going to doing things different. Xavier lived in the frat house which most of the time is said to be a zooo you never knew who was going to prank who and when the next prank was going to play out. The party had well started drinks were flying and a game of never have i ever was under way, when Xavier had noticed a cute blonde on the other side of the circle during the game and she was looking right at him liking what she seen. Well i feel like I’m going to give away the whole book so ill stop there and make you read and fall in love with Xavier, Morgan and the crazy guys that live in the frat out along with both of their families. This book was amazing the frat brothers all make you laugh out loud with all of their pranks on each other’s and Morgans sassy, stubborn attitude will make you love her to and wish she was your friend.

BlurbCaleb Hallow doesn’t need anyone. All he needs is to dominate in the MMA cage and become world champion.

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?

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?

My ReviewHoly hot werewolf shifter love making. Meg was dating the champion of the welterweight title Austin Graves and all Austin cared about was getting whatever he wanted and stopping at no cost to do so, even if it meant losing his girlfriend to his enemy and the man he hated the most Caleb Hallow. Meg caught Austin getting a blow job right in front of her by some groupie she was done with him for good. While sitting at the bar Meg felt a weird pulling sensation and when she turned around there was Caleb Hallow what better way to get back at her ex then getting under the one person he hates the most. Caleb was after the title he worked hard for years to get it and he wanted it but he had one secret he and his family had to be careful of on the full moon well they became werewolf’s and its a secret he kept to himself. After Meg and Caleb hooked up and had the best time either of them have had do they make it a normal thing or is it a hit it and quit it type hookup just to piss Austin off. Holy crap this book had me hook from the very beginning it will probably get you all hot and bothered and will definitely leave you wanting more. You will not be disappointed with this book at all.

BlurbZach She was innocent. Passionate.Fierce.After Luna Stone and I went from friends to lovers, my only purpose was showing her how worthy I was. But how could I convince her when I didn’t believe it myself? I craved her touch and her smiles but most of all, her heart.I vowed to protect her and show her father that I could be the man for his daughter. I pushed.She pulled.And when all was said and done, I’d have to go through an even higher power to prove that I deserved her…Myself.*LunaHe was quiet.Withdrawn.Intense.Zach Porter and I had been friends since we were kids, but it had never amounted to anything more than that. Until now.But as close as we were getting, he was still closed off. He protected his heart and put up walls, even though he had no reason to. He shoved.I grabbed hold and never let go.If I didn’t fight for what was ours, he’d succumb to his demons and believe their vicious words telling him that he’s not good enough. To give up.On us.

My ReviewWow wow wow, Luna wanted it all a family, career and her best friend since they were kids. Zach was a troubled kid then was adopted into a loving house, but that didn’t stop the torture he went through as a child from creeping into his mind. Once these two let their feelings be known nothing could stand in their way well except for Luna’s dad that is no one was good enough for his daughter. But Zach and Luna didn’t care they wanted what they wanted but his past might just get in the way of their happiness. This book was amazing there aren’t enough words to use to describe how wonderful it is with some twist and turns and shocking surprises it’s gonna get you hook line and sinker.

– There is adult langue and some mature content so be warned of that.

My Review- Holy moley was this a great book I’ve had a hard time trying to put into word how much i loved this book while not giving important information away. Ariel was just your average girl well as average as she could be she was just moved from her high school that she loved because she could blend in with the crowd and no one noticed her.

It seemed a little odd to Ezekiel that there were only a handful of people in the place but then again, he didn’t know just how far off the map he’d wandered. He sauntered to the bar and plopped down on a stool. Ordering a beer from the bartender he glanced around. A chill ran up his spine. Every set of eyes in the bar were focused on him. A couple guys grinned at him like he was prey.

It was then that he caught sight of something sharp and pearly white in the glow of the neon.

A pair of fangs. Fuck.

“What is it with you guys and bars, huh? I always pictured that you would be more wine and cheese snobs than canned beer and pretzels,” he questioned.

The two playing pool chuckled as they set their pool sticks down on the felt covered surface and prowled towards him. The one on the left, with black rumpled hair, untucked dress shirt, and wrinkled dress slacks smirked at him. “We guys? You act as if you know us?”

Ezekiel rose to his feet, nudging his beer aside. He scanned for exits other than glass doors. There were none. This place had to violate at least a dozen fire codes. Did they have fire codes in the backwoods? “I know your kind. You have distant cousins in Minnesota that are making my family’s life a living hell right now.”

The vampires frowned and the one dressed like he had left his soul at the office gave a hardy sniff to the stale air of the bar. He shrugged. “You wouldn’t be the first werewolf I’ve drained dry. Your blood tastes like shit, though.”

“Great to know.”

Before Ezekiel could drop into stance to defend himself, the bell on the door tinkled a greeting. The entire room turned to see who had walked in. He cursed under his breath. His odds weren’t great as it was and now, he had to defend someone?

Except there was no one there but a small puddle on the floor left by the storm outside. A second later two of the vampires closest to the door dropped to their knees, writhing in pain.

That was when Ezekiel saw her. Jet black hair flowed down past her ivory face and down her back. Eyes so dark they could have been mistaken as violet glanced at him. Her whole body, garbed in black, stiffened at the sight of him.

It was the woman in his dreams, the one that had made him jack off so many times before he hit the road on this trip. His cock stiffened at the sight of her. It was a really bad time for a hard-on.

“Take cover,” she demanded.

Ezekiel smiled at her, reassuringly. “I’ve got this, sweetheart.”

She glowered at him as her fist flew out, dropping another vampire to the ground. “I’m sorry. Did you just call me sweetheart?”

He bit back a groan as the two pool playing vampires charged him. For a moment, he thought the distraction was going to fuck up his fighting style. As one body thudded on top of the other, he let out a sigh of relief.

“Do you not like being called sweetheart?” he countered.

Her hand dropped to her thigh to produce a wicked looking knife. She pointed it at him. “I am not your sweetheart. Call me that again and it’ll be the last word you ever mutter.”

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Bantamweight (Hallow Brothers 5) by Tricia Andersen

Abraham Hallow would do just about anything to get out from under his oldest brother, Josiah’s, thumb. That includes performing as the Luchador in the local semi-professional wrestling circuit. He gets more than he bargained for when he hooks up with a woman with multicolored hair. The draw to her is undeniable. He wakes up the following morning with the ancient mark of his ancestors, mating him to the mystery woman he met the night before.

It was a simple mission—find the infamous Hallow brothers, kill them, and bring back the amulet. Kai’s plans get derailed after one night of hot, crazy sex with a mask wrestler. When she finds out the wrestler was none other than Abraham Hallow, the youngest of the Hallow brothers, she is exiled from the mermaid kingdom. Yet the orders from her king still stand. Can she deny her ever-growing love for Abraham, or will she fulfill her duties of killing him?

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Baby brother Abe is sick and tired of being treated like that a baby he is an adult who can make his own choices and when his big brother Josiah dont want him to fight like the rest of them he takes it upon himself to transform into the mask man so that know one will know he is actually a Hallow. After a fight one night he had his strange feeling and seen this beautiful rainbow haired beauty in the crowd, once back in the locker room the door opened and their she was looking for him well next thing she was pined against the locker. he never thought he would see her again well until the famous Hallow mating mark appeared. Abe wasnt sure he was ready for a mate but ready or not he had one and little did he know that she was actually a mermaid, so after the king of the seas had found out he wanted nothing more then to have Abe killed for marking his seer with his mark. Well crazier things happen when it comes to the Hallows fighting to make sure they are safe their mates are safe and that the world isnt coming to an end anytime soon. This was a great read defiantly wasnt sure were this was going when i first started it but i loved how it ended Abe was so thoughtful proved to his other brothers that he wasnt a little kid anymore and that he in fact had grown up.

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Corner (Hallow Brothers 4) by Tricia Andersen


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?

I won this book from the author and here is my honest opinion

When the weight of the world is forever on your shoulders the oldest hollow is finally getting his own taste of his medicine. After the tragic death of his aunts by two vampires, while at the church Josiah feels this strange pull that can’t be explained and then he see Sarah one of the aunts church friends who is by the book. He got into shoes as you could say but she has also met her match and Josiah, we need to get together disagreements are going to happen stubbornness is the main part of their relationship and some secrets that Sarah is holding. Decided I’ve been friends with her about being a werewolf and everything that goes on in his life the hell we handle it when he finds out that his mate is also a fighter. Find out what happens when Josiah who promised his father that he was going to take care of the family has to let go of the reins a little bit to help his mate fight for her life. I just love this family and the story and it’s hilarious to see Josiah get a taste of his own medicine is how stubborn Sarah is how she doesn’t back down from anything that he has to say.

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Holy hot werewolf shifter love making. Meg was dating the champion of the welterweight title Austin Graves and all Austin cared about was getting whatever he wanted and stopping at no cost to do so, even if it meant losing his girlfriend to his enemy and the man he hated the most Caleb Hallow. Meg caught Austin getting a blow job right in front of her by some groupie she was done with him for good. While sitting at the bar Meg felt a weird pulling sensation and when she turned around there was Caleb Hallow what better way to get back at her ex then getting under the one person he hates the most. Caleb was after the title he worked hard for years to get it and he wanted it but he had one secret he and his family had to be careful of on the full moon well they became werewolf’s and its a secret he kept to himself. After Meg and Caleb hooked up and had the best time either of them have had do they make it a normal thing or is it a hit it and quit it type hookup just to piss Austin off. Holy crap this book had me hook from the very beginning it will probably get you all hot and bothered and will definitely leave you wanting more. You will not be disappointed with this book at all.
