Accidental P*rnstar by [Cindy  Tanner]

AMAZON BuyLink

My college career was going great…

Until it wasn’t.

I lost my job, scholarship, and apartment in a trifecta of crap luck.

The last thing I want to do is run back home to my parents with my tail tucked. As luck would have it, my old roommate, Mason Davis, has a compelling—if slightly unorthodox solution—to my financial dilemma.

His suggestion?

A live stream feed of me enjoying a little steamy fun with HIM. The smoking hot guy I’ve fantasized about countless times before.

Surely, a tenacious bookworm like me can figure out how to let go of her inhibitions for one night.

After all, going viral is a good thing… right?

ANGIE Review

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

Lawd ya’ll when Cindy showed me the title for this book I was cracking up. I couldn’t wait to read it. When she asked if I wanted an ARC…legit I jumped. I am so glad I did. This book has so many amazing lines and scenes. I was giggling on my chair on the deck. I legit gave the “Why are you looking at me” stare to my husband when he was all “Lets do something.” UHM NO Jules and Mason are making a PORN! LOL
SO Jules and Mason lived together with a snot and Mason moved out long before Jules. She was all kinds of a mess because on top of losing her housing she needs a job. She is at the club whichis never does and is drinking. She makes a fool of herself a couple times and thankfully Noah is there for them. LOL Jules and Mason reconnect and he offers her a room in his condo. Ya know the one he has also ready paid for. Well the comedy of what happens just needs to be read but needless to say Jules is not about t move in when…again …she has zero place to go.
Jules moves in and then Mason tells her is secret…ya know he does ALLFANS>>>GASP!! I know right!! SO after a quick chat he says he would love to scene with her for a cool $5K. When a girl is down a girl needs to do some drastic measures.
SO Mason and Jules start to blur the line between roommates/dating couple/work mates. They have some misunderstanding, jealousy, miscommunication, and of course a dash of “You trying to steal my girl”!!
The story was perfect. It was a great read and for sure I want a book on Mel and Noah.

Till Death Do Us Part (An Ariel Kimber Novel Book 7) by [Mary  Martel ]

AMAZON buy link

Ariel Kimber and her coven are under imminent threat from the Council. They are monsters, without fangs or horns, who hide behind their mantle of power, and they will do anything to get what they want.

The problem is, they want Ariel. They want her so badly that every other person around her is in danger just by being near her.

The Council forgot one very important fact though—Ariel Kimber is no victim. She’s a survivor, and the Council is stupid to think they can simply take her and destroy everything and everyone she loves.

She will do whatever it takes to keep her coven safe, even if she has to go through hell to do it. They are all more than willing to fight alongside her because she’s finally agreed to spend the rest of her life tied to them in every way possible.

They have a lot to fight for.

The goal is to make it to the other side without losing anyone along the way because they want their happily ever after.

And they want to be able to say till death do us part.

But life for Ariel Kimber is never that easy.

And it never will be.

ANGIE’s Review –

I received this book from the author for free for an honest review by that sexy bitch Mary Martel.

Between texting Mary to yell at her and texting her to sob to her…this book was everything fans of the series want to read. There is so much that happens in this book to move the story forward and answer questions but start so many new ones.
I am so afraid to spoiler this book that I am going to keep my review kinda vague in parts. I want you to be just as devasted and excited as I was. Lemme just say prepare for Chapters 14-17 because they are so heavy. My stomach was in KNOT…KNOTS…..tears….heartbreak….guys…so much happens in this part of the book.
Now don’t go thinking the rest of the book isn’t important because LAWD it is. There are so many parts of the book I need to discuss like Rain, Romero, and Isobel. I mean Jesus these 3. The crazy triangle!!!
Can I saw Q and Ariel arguing are pretty epic and as always hilarious for you the reader. Q is my favorite of the coven guys and of course he is an epic fuck up with his girl and understanding when she needs girly stuff. But I love Damien and Jules more this novel. Jules for standing up to Rain and Damien for understanding Ariel and her girl ways. Tyson is the best friend we need and love. Dash…sigh,,,he is just sensitive Dash. The twins made my heart so happy in this book. They open up and really show us how much they love being loved by Ariel. They understand her fears and do everything to let her know she is perfect for them.
The Council…guys…so much shit happens this book and shit will reverberate after shit that happens this book. I am so nervous and excited for what will happen after this book. GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Vague reviews so as to not post spoilers!!!!!! Its so tough!!! But I need you to be just as devastated and broken as I was!
There was a new character introduced…..friends……your heart….it will be destroyed and yet it will make everything right with the coven. Does that make sense? It will trust me. I loved and hated this character. Loved them because of who they are but hated their back story. If they are involved in the Council it cant be a good one right????
As always I am a needy reader and want so much more. I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Rebel (Alumbra Pack Book 1) by [AJ Renee, Angie Wade]

AMAZON buy link

He’d long given upon finding his mate, but when he does, is she too broken to trust their bond?
Meeting boys after curfew should have been innocent fun, but it turned Rosalia’s life upside down. Escaping the werewolf compound wasn’t an option, so she did her best to survive the twisted hell she’d been dragged to. Her dreams of having a real chance at life had been smothered by guilt and the realization she was too broken, even if she ever did see her loved ones again.
Peter had nearly given up on finding his true mate, but a mission to rescue a pack member’s sister leads him to Rosalia. If he’d known why she’d been impossible to locate, he would have left the pack in his beta’s care and moved mountains to save her sooner.
He must find the strength to rein in his wolf’s need to claim her and give her the necessary space to heal. Her body, heart, and wolf are at odds, with merely a thin string keeping her tattered spirit from coming apart. Can Rosalia learn to trust Peter, or are the jagged, invisible scars too deep?

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book.
I LOVED PETER!! I mean I have loved him since meeting him in the Broderick series. You do not have to read the Broderick series to read this book OR the following books in the series BUT I highly suggest it so you understand the relationships.
Peter…he is the best alpha. He loves his pack and those he deems pack like the witches in the Broderick coven. He is fierce in protecting those he loves. He is happy with his life, but he yearns for his mate. He is happy for Brandy and her siblings but…yeah why can’t he find HERE!!! Our calm cool alpha is outta his mind lately and he is not sure WHY. He can’t focus and is just hot tempered which is not Peter. When the pack and the coven go to save some women, he is beyond mad to see his mate there…in the room of abused and battered women AND a sister to Claudia.
Rosalie is the brave one of the group. She has done lots of things that many would find disgusting to survive abuse and horrors. When she realizes they are being rescued and its by her sister, she is overjoyed and then…..she sees him. The large wolf is her mate. She is scared given she has seen how alpha tend to treat women.
Rosie and Peter have a lot to overcome but Peter becomes more the man we know and love. He is doing everything to make sure she knows she is safe and wanted no matter what she as been through. He is doing everything to put her at ease to him and his caring. The waters these two navigate was pretty wicked at times but Peter never faulters. GUYS I loved him even more!!! GAH!! PETER!!!
I am so excited for this series and absolutely love that the Brodericks are just as front and center in this series as Peter’s pack was in their story. But I really wanna know whats up with Xander but Lea and Joel!! EEEEP!!!!
I cannot wait!!

The Dragon's Fake Fiancée (Shifters of Rawr County Book 6) by [Sophie Stern]

AMAZON buy link

Cosmo has been living in Rawr County for the last 10 years because he hates himself and wants to be miserable. Dragon Isle was no good for him. Everyone there was too happy and joyful. A dragon like him deserves to be unhappy.

When his family tries to set him up with a childhood friend to date, he blurts out a lie: he’s engaged.

It’s not true.

But when they surprise him with an unexpected visit, he grabs his nearest employee, Athena, and introduces her as his fiancée.

What could possibly go wrong?

Angie’s Review –

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

Ok here goes. So Sophie is about the most adorable person I have ever met. I have read several of her alter ego books but have been looking to sink my teeth into on of these books but life man…not enough time in the day, right? SO, she offered this ARC and I jumped. Its in a “series” but all the books can be read in any order. I didn’t have any issues reading the 3 or 4th book in the series. Every side character was briefly introduced and then off we went.
Cosmo and Athena…. holy hawt burn. Holy pants melting off…. holy office spankings. Oh yeah you read that right…. OFFICE. SPANKING!
Ok ok so the Office Spanking was to get you hooked now lets really get down to the story, shall we??
Cosmo is a grumpy…..errrr……brooding dragon. His friends are all mating up and he is in love with his secretary who is in love with Benjamin. UGH Gross Benny. Anyway, he looks forward to seeing her every single day. Since she is his paralegal, it does happen all the time.
Althena is head over heels in love with her boss. Ya know, the dragon. She does everything can can to be close to him like going back to school to be a paralegal. She is so afraid of looking like the pathetic girl she is, and maybe in hopes of making him jealous, she makes but a boyfriend.
One phone call and visit from Cosmo’s family changes EVERYTHING for them. Cosmos mom and dad want him to come home to meet another chick to possible settle him down on Dragon Isle to have some dragon babies. Cosmo is not down with this idea, so he throws Athena under the bus and she goes along with it.
I mean they live together for a week and pretend to be getting married. They know so much about the other how can it go wrong?? LAWD the feelings that come rolling off each of them not knowing how the other really feels. The chemistry was so thick but the slow burn…….I almost combusted!!!
This story was sooooo good. I sat and devoured it in a couple hours. Now I need to grab the other books in the series and I am so looking forward to Jennifer, The Red Panda’s book with Lewis!!!

Outcast (The Pack Prophecy Book 1) by [R.L. Caulder]

AMAZON buy link

“The arrival of the Prophetess will bring both hope and destruction for the wolves of the world.

She alone will be able to save them–or damn them.”

The dark prophecy that has been passed down since the first pack of shifters is coming to fruition– and I am at the center of it.

An orphaned human taken in by a pack of wolves. The fate of their existence in my hands.

I’ve been treated as the dirt beneath the pack’s paws for years.

Will they be able to accept my new role when my powers surface? Will I be able to forgive them enough to help them?

The bright spot amongst all the turmoil…finding my three fated. Until one of them rejects our bond.

The one thing I know for sure…death is coming for us all, soon, and the person responsible for it? Their betrayal is going to alter the shifter world forever.

I’ll conquer my powers, protect the packs, and live happily ever after with my men, right?

Wrong.

No one is prepared for the vile truths of my visions to come to light.

***

Author Note: This book has a 18+ warning and is intended for mature audiences. It is book one in The Pack Prophecy series which will end in a cliffhanger.

Angie’s Review –

I purchased this book and audio,

The narration of the story *Chef’s Kiss* was absolutely perfect. Heather and Jeffrey brought the characters to life 110%. I will be honest in that I LOVE Jeffrey’s audio and when I see his name, I am super excited.

I grabbed this book because R. L. Caulder will be attending a book signing I am going too. She has so many books to pick BUT this one had audio. It was the winner. I gotta admit chance is why I grabbed the book, but I am so addicted to Kira and her men.
I loved the fact this book was kinda a shifter’s version of Cinderella…I mean she is a gross human the Alpha and his wife, Maya, took in. But once the Alpha’s mate was killed by daimoma, he blames her and is keeping her in misery to punish her.
Kira had only known happiness the few years she was with Jameson and his mother, Maya. Once Maya was killed she was only bullied and teases horrible by all the wolves in the pack Jameson and Sophia were the worst ones to her. There was only one bright spot in her day. Milo always would protect her. He has made it clear he has feelings for her, but she knows once the full moon hits when he turns 21 just like the rest of the pack, he will find his mate and forget her. She guards her heart and hopes one day she can find happiness too.
The closer the pack comes to the next full moon, Kira notices Seth, Jameson’s bestie, looking at her like a pork chop. She is angry that NOW he admits he has feelings. Sorry Seth not happening. Kira does as she is always expected to do when the full moon hits and everyone changes….even KIRA!!!??? Milo, Seth, AND Jameson all run to her because they feel the pull to their “Fated Mate”. The wolves all see who for her she is but the men have issue except Milo. Seth soon realizes he needs to listen to his wolf but Jameson…well he is a dick. Mega dick who is so blinded with hatred for Kira.
Kira soon learns she is has the powers to save the shifters but a cliffy happens when she soon discovers what is happening and who is leading the daimoma.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!!!

Concede: Knights of Paradise MC by [S.J.  Chaynie ]

This book releases TOMORROW July 1st!!

AMAZON Buy Link 

I’ve spent the last four years in a Catholic boarding school. A very different world from the one I have found myself being forced into. There is a dangerous game being played, and I haven no choice but to be under his protection. He’s the king, and expects me to bow just like all the others. The more he demands, the more I resist. He’s not just too old for me, or just the president of a motorcycle club. He’s my brother’s best friend, and if he wants me as his queen, he better prove he’s worthy enough for me to put on the crown.

This is an adult novel intended for mature readers.
Book 1 of the Knights of Paradise MC Series. Does end on a cliffhanger, part of a continuing series.

Angie’s Review –

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

First up, I saw a booktok trailer and was like “HEEEEY GIRL” to the authors.  I essentially asked nicely…cough cough begged…..for an ARC of this book.  MC is my JAM and it sounded like something I would love.  It hits all my favs…Best friend’s sibling/age gap/MC.  I was super thrilled when she said YES.  I got the book and downloaded thinking I would get a chapter or two in before I put it down to do housework.  PFT Housework be damned.  Maverick and Tanner had my FULL attention, but I was side eyeing Dom and Dani.  Don’t worry I got questions you two!!

Now I know people are haters for cliffhangers, but I love them.  I really do.  So, I will warn you this is a cliffy but it’s a good one.  Does that make sense?  Prolly not for you cliffy haters.  But for real, I loved it and where it dropped at is a good ending/beginning for the next story.

Ok so Maverick/Zeke and Tanner/Vix.  This book runs you through the gamete.  Tanner starts to story as a wide-eyed boarding school virgin with no idea who her brother is and especially what a MC Club is.  When the story cliffies, we see a strong woman who know what she wants and who she wants.  My favorite scene of the book is when she has had it with Maverick’s shit.  For Real!!  Our girl is over it and she tells him what is up.  It is up to him to make the changes because she is DONZO.  But my next favorite scene is when they are bed shopping for his room…Maverick is a dirty dirty boy!!!  He plays soooo dirty to get what he wants, and that is Tanner!

Maverick is the MC president, and he loves the lifestyle.  He doesn’t think he should settle down and honestly doesn’t really have any intensions.  However, Tanner makes him want more and importantly makes him FEEL more.  The feelings she causes in him are powerful and super confusing to the manwhore.

Now Dom is Tanners brother who is all “Hand off” buuuuut dude uhm you don’t seem to be keeping your hands off Mavericks little sister, Dani.  Pot Meet Kettle!!  I can’t wait to see what happens in book 2.  I think Mr. Dom is getting the much-needed eye opener he needs to claim what his heart desires most!

#WOTR22 #Audio #Rereads #Contemporary #Mafia #Suspense #Series – Tangles in Texas Series by Alison Bliss

Tangled in Texas

Rules of Protection, Book 1- 
It’s rule breaker Emily Foster’s birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she’s entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.

When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can’t have.

Jake’s as hot as he is infuriating, and she can’t help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake’s determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she’s determined to get into the right ones—his.

Each book in the Tangled in Texas series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Playing with Fire, Book 2-

Nothing ignites a fire like the perfect match…

Anna Weber is every inch the proper librarian–old-fashioned, conservatively dressed right down to her tightly clipped flaming red hair. She’s just moved to a small Texas town, and is determined to spend time with her friend before she has to disappear. Relationships aren’t easy for her. She knows too well what it means to be burned. And the last thing she ever wants to do is fall in love…

Especially not with a fireman who’s hot enough to set the entire state of Texas on fire.

Cowboy can’t resist the fiery little librarian, and he’s determined to make her his. Beneath that prim-and-proper exterior is a woman he very much wants to know–if she’d let him. She’ll test his patience. His control. Hell, his very sanity. And for the first time, Cowboy wonders if he’s found the one fire he can’t control…

Law of Attraction, Book 3-

For single mom Bobbie Jo Weston, finding a husband is not on her to-do list. She’s focused on turning a run-down chicken farm into a Bed & Breakfast. She agrees to let a friend’s nephew stay with her in exchange for his handyman skills, but she wasn’t counting on the super sexy Seth Landry being that guy.

Seth has a special skill-set, all right, but it has nothing to do with hammering nails. As a retired member of The Resistance—an elite group of ex-military soldiers—his dark, unsettling past haunts him. He needs a place to lay low, and an out-of-the-way B&B is nothing short of perfect. The blonde beauty doesn’t trust men, and he doesn’t plan on sticking around long enough to change her mind.

The closer they get, the more they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. And while Bobbie holds on to her fear of watching another man walk out of their lives, Seth’s mere presence has put them all in jeopardy. The only way to ever be free of his dangerous past is for him to accept one last mission…

Review by Twinsie Angie

Book 1 –

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Two author friends, who go by the name Elizabeth Hayley, tagged me on Facebook about possibly reading their friends new book. Hey, I love those ladies and their books crack me up so if THEY are in love with someone then I will love them too, Right?? I reached out to the author and asked for an advanced copy. OMG am I glad I did. I was laughing soooo hard at some many different lines in the book. I was even texting my friend/blogger/bestie Melinda with lines saying “you have gotta read this book”……
So this story begins with our main character at the bar with her besties Gina and Dale celebrating her birthday. She sees a hottie checking her out but decides against it. She strolls to the bathroom when said hottie finds her annnnd is not so hot….more slimey gross. Well she tries to shake him but he won’t take the hint so a Southern Gentleman plays the part of her “boyfriend” to make slime ball take the hint. Well another situation arises and Mr. Southern Gentleman needs her help again so she ends up lip locking him AGAIN!!!! Well Gina and Dale dare our girl to follow Mr. Southern Gentleman down the hallway to jump his bones but instead she sees slime ball getting killed. Well she runs and gets attacked by Jake, the Southern Gentleman but escapes him. She goes to the police station to report the murder but GASP Mr. Southern Gentleman appears and GASP he is a FEDERAL AGENT!!!!
SOOO Jake and our newly named Emily go into the Witness Protection to help take down Slime Balls killer. Well the chemistry between the two is awesome and she pretty much pouts and offers a no strings attached night but dang it if the bad guys don’t find them. So Jake and Emily go off radar. Jake is hiding Emily without the FBI’s approval. He takes her in to Deliverance country to hide out with his family. They are supposed to be boyfriend/girlfriend…… Which is news to Emily because they fight NONSTOP!!! Which makes the book insanely funny and fullllllll of sexual tension.
So while hiding out Emily and Jake fight over her jealousy of his ex, his jealousy of her flirting, her not being able to be domestic at all, him being overly alpha at every turn of the second hand on your watch, her only thinking about herself, him not taking her feelings into consideration, and on and on and on!! Now sometimes when I read a book like this I am like “seriously, enough already” but not once in this entire novel did I feel bored with them. I was in love with the characters and the story. I was shocked at how fast I flew through this book. I was so busy reading that when I hit 45% I was stunned and then next thing I knew I was at 88%. I mean WHERE DID IT GO!!! The story was just flying by and I wanted to know what would happened but I didn’t want the story to end.
The epilogue made me really happy and laught a lot. The epilogue had everything about the story you wanted to know…like about the boys, the ex, Junior, Henry and Floss and the rest of the town you have come to love.
The story has so many twist and turns. It is soo full of sexual innuendo and sexual chemistry. I yelled at both characters while also yelling with them at the other person. I have to tell you I CANNOT wait for more from this author and this series.

Book 2-

I received this book from the author for an honest review.
OK SO I freaking love this author. Her books crack me up. Her characters are loveable and at the same time you wanna smack them or kick them for being total jacka$$es. Now this is book 2 of the series but you don’t have to have read book 1 to understand but if you missed book 1, you will soooo wanna read it after reading this one.
We met Cowboy in book 1 when he was giving Jake a hard time about Emily. We loved his charm and flirty ways so I was really excited to finally get his book. He is suuuuch a “love ‘em and leave ‘em” guy that we can’t believe he has eyes for the uptight librarian. I mean I love Anna but she is a total shy, nerdy girl that everyone sees but doesn’t really see. Well Anna has had eyes for Cowboy for EVER but knew he never SAW her. When he does see her, she is floored and thinks he is looking for a notch on his bet. When she turns him does, he is FLOORED. Cowboy gets what he wants UNTIL Anna.
Anna is hiding in plain sight from Cowboy but also from her dark past. She won’t be in town for long but wanted to connect with her friend Bobbie Jo. Cowboy and Anna begin a dance of will they or wont they. Cowboy is all about claiming her but then freaks out about her innocents. Anna is all about keeping her guard but then Cowboy kisses her and BOOM forgets her hatred of him…..some seriously funny scenes are when she is yelling at him using “big words”…..
I loved these characters and I love the twists and turns regarding who is stalking Anna. I am really excited about who I think the next book will be abut. I really hope its Bobbie Jo because she really needs her own HEA after all that “germy” has done to her.

Book 3-

I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

GUUURL!! Bobbie Jo you know I was not your friend in Book 1 right?? You know I was plotting with Emily to have some disfiguring accident happen or that you would get run over by Flossy’s tractor?? Something bad would happen!! THEN, like Emily, I warmed to you and saw the real you…not the superficial one that everyone else sees. The more I read about you and being a single mom, the more I felt bad for being so awful to you. I have been PATIENTLY waiting for this book….for your book because if ANYONE needs an HEA, it is YOU!!

Bobbie Jo has had a DRY SPELL…..no play since her little accident with her sperm donors little gift was received. So, she has finally decided to give a one night stand a try. When she spies a tall glass of water she is hopeful he can help her out buuuut as usual Jeremy screws that up or did he???? After yet another confrontation Bobbie Jo and said tall glass of water start to get hot and heavy and he walks away?? WHU??????

Bobbie is like PFFT with men and that is when her life changes forever….ya see Mr. Tall Glass of Water happens to turn up at her door and is her new Guest Boarder at her house…yes friends que to intense sexual chemistry!! Oh yeah Mr. Tall Glass of Water just happens to be Bobbie Jo’s boss’ nephews, Seth. Seems Seth needs to settle for a few weeks and clear his head.

Seth is like WTF when he sees Bobbie. He is then super confused when he is thinking his summer of clearing BOTH his brain will include a little bed hopping with Bobbie when he little Boy, Austin, comes home. Seth kinda freaks but sees how the 2 adore each other. Plus Austin us a super cool little kid!!!

So Bobbie and Seth have come to an “understanding” of no sex because she is his boss wile he is doing repairs on her farm…friends we ALL know that is so not gonna last. THE CHEMSITRY is crazy and then when he think they WILL…cock blocked …then we think they might and again more tension. Lets just say when they finally do…its was on like Donkey Kong!!

Now as we are beginning to see hearts growing and love forming, Seth’s past comes back and causes trouble as does Bobbie Jo’s sperm donor. This causes all kinds of complications for the two. They are so confused over what to do and what to say at times that that further causes issues.
So my favorite part of the book is when Seth gives Bobbie Jo a certain code word. Now I cant tell you the code word because when they pick the code words it was hilarious as hell but when he uses it……Lump in my throat friends….huge lump.

I have got to say, I loved this story. I loved seeing everyone together again and the epilogue was THE ABSOLUTE BEST EVER!!! It ties everything together for all the characters in the series.

#WOTR22 #Audio #reread #paranormal #Shifters – Jax, The Protectors book 8 by Teresa Gabelman, Narration by Jeffrey Kafer

Jax Wheeler has been fighting his own demons for as long as he can remember. One of those demons is from his past, a brother who wants nothing more to see Jax suffer. Working closely with the Cincinnati Branch of the VC Warriors Jax never thought he would find someone who could help him ease his pain, but he was wrong.

Having a past of her own, Caroline Fitzpatrick has survived being put into a trance by a madman who wanted to control her sister, a abusive relationship, communicating with the dead, but nothing has prepared her for Jax Wheeler. From the moment she saw him the attraction was immediate, but the attraction was not mutual or was it?

The more Jax tries to stay away from Caroline, the more he finds himself at her door, in her life. All he knows is that every minute he spends with the beautiful school teacher, the more danger he puts her in. His brother’s vengeance of wanting him to suffer has put Caroline in the line of fire and only Jax can protect her.

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

OH MAN!!  Jax Wheeler!!  He is no Jared mind you but the man is pretty amazing.

Jax and Caroline had been totally dancing around each other the last book.  SO I was finally glad to see their story be told.  Jax, of course is an island and doesn’t need anyone…typical Warrior.  Caroline’s the sweet school teacher who has a crazy outta control nurturing side.  That same nurturing side that makes Jax Wheelers walls crumble because no one has ever taken care of HIM.  No one had ever bandaged a cut or took the time to make sure he is ok but damn it if this human isn’t making it tough to stay away from her.

Caroline and Jax are at this crazy stand still in their “relationship” and boy did I love Sloane stepping up to the plate to make Jax put up or shut up for Caroline…way to go Boss Man…also looking forward to you getting your butt handed to you in the next book but back to Jax and Caroline.

Mika is after Caroline for the intense purpose of causing Jax pain.  When Jax tells Caroline the whole sorted details of the family history, sad doesn’t even begin to tell you how I felt.  Mika is just evil and needed to be taken care of WARRIOR STYLE!!

Jax and Caroline had some troubles with communicating through the book but then when they can step back and see the other person’s perspective, they do both grow as a couple.  Granted you want to kill Jax for being so stubborn because let’s face it, THAT Warrior is a hard nut to crack.

The side stories of finding Sloane a secretary….OMG TOOOOO MUCH!!  Plus Steve is always a there for a funny laugh.  The vampire just hasn’t learned when to shut his mouth…I mean he got a detention and he isn’t even in SCHOOL anymore…BWHAHAHAHAH!!!!

For me the book was great but I felt the ending was a smidge rushed at the ending  The conflict at the end seemed a little bit fast and I almost thought the story was going to carry over to the next book.  But the story is an awesome read and anyone who is a fan will love this installment!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I am going to be honest.  I am not sure if Michel gave me the audio code for this audiobook or if I bought it.  But whatever the case, here is my honest review.

Let’s just get to the point with narration…Kat Maxwell is amazing.  I love love love all the books that I have listened to her narrate.  She has a great ability to make each person sound different.  She can emphasize at just the right time in certain scenes to make sure you get that intended laugh or pick up on the sarcasm.  Seriously her narration definitely brings more to the table and authors should be looking her up for books.  I never doubt an audiobook when I see she is narrating it.

Oh Mandy, Mandy, Mandy….or Miss Man as the kids call her.  She is a broken mess of hurt, sadness, rejection, and loss of emotion.  I mean everyone knows someone like her or everyone had been where she is.  She uses her body and sex to make her FEEL but in the end is left feeling worse.  When secrets about her parentage come tumbling out of the closet, she is stunned at how this little bit of news will change the “Growing Strong Mafia”.  She soon learns that not everything is what it seemed.

Ashton sees what an amazing, loyal, fierce, and sexy as hell person Amanda is but can’t understand why she devalues herself all the time.  He is falling for the hard as nails teacher and wants to make sure she understands he is there for the long haul IF she can open her heart to him.  He makes her soon see that relationships aren’t all THAT bad IF you find the ONE person to complete your soul.

Don’t worry friends Mandy does not make it easy for Ashton but he challenges her at every turn while being there to comfort her as her life slowly starts to crumble around her.  More and more secrets start to spill, and Mandy starts to wonder why life can be so craptatic.  Mandy also needs to realize that Ash IS WORTH IT and WILL NOT disappoint her in the end.

Don’t worry friends, I yelled at Mandy a time or two to stop being a rock-hard stubborn idiot.  I also yelled at Ashton to slow his roll because Mandy is a timid horse who will buck you at every turn.  However, their story was hilarious and funny to read.  Her hating him more than air was the best thing ever especially knowing that no one believed her line of bull!!

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports. She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this audio book for an honest review by the author.

The narrator by Kat Maxwell is amazing.  I loved seeing her name on the book for narrator.  She does a great job voicing the characters.  She is one of my favorite narrators for audio books.

Mary Beth is normally a strong, steady, and responsible business owner.  She and her 3 besties from high school built a business and are building toward a better future.  These girls are her everything and she will do everything to be the best for her friends/family.

Mary Beth is such a strong woman until her baby daddy, Nate, comes crawling back.  She is in a bad spot.  She keeps falling back into the sheets with him and will not move forward.  She lives in the “what if” he finally comes back.  She also thinks she needs to be available for the father of her son.  Which Nate fully takes advantage of.  He knows he can worm his way back in to her life.

Eli is the swinging bachelor who moves into Mary Beth’s apartment.  He catches a glimpse of her when moving in and cannot stop trying to get to know her.  They two have crazy chemistry plus major respect for one another.  They love to banter and grow to love each other but Nate will not let this love grow without issues.

Mary Beth has a lot of other issues besides her baby daddy and that is her real family.  The birth of her illegitimate son caused her to be disowned by her parents.  When she stumbles upon some family drama, she and her friends have to be there to support her as well as Eli.

I loved the story and seeing Case and Gabby plus seeing where the family will be headed in the future.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given this audio book for an honest review by the author.

I love love loved the premise of this book given I am a preschool teacher by day.  SO, when Michel offered me the book, I snapped it up and started it the next day!!

I am going to start with our heroine Gabby because she is just kind, loving, and loyal…at times to a fault…but that is a story for another day.  Gabby is minding her business when she catches a batch of diapers being thrown her way.  She, again being the amazing and selfless person that she is, jumps in to help this incredibly stressed out…Dad?  What she soon learns about Case and his siblings turned children, she opens her heart to help him figure things out not realizing how her own world would be rocked by this man and kiddos.

Case is just wanting to finish college when his world is rocked by his parent’s death.  He now has to decide what he is doing…keeping his twin siblings OR giving them up for adoption.  He is at his wits ends and begging God for a sign when Gabby, the angel from above, comes to his rescue.

Claire and Charlie ….seriously made this book!!  They are the typical kids with typical drama (I mean I feel ya Claire when my Pretties are no longer wearable) but then they have such devastating sadness over the loss of their momma and daddy.  Case and Gabby navigate a relationship all the while finding a family forming under their feet.

I loved the story like crazy.  I mean how can you not love them as a couple plus Gabby’s Growing Strong Mafia who threaten Case at every turn if he hurts their girl…LOL  *Sigh* Oh Mandy……..

This was a sweet story of finding the love of your life right when you need them most.  The couple deal with a few issues and learn to communicate along the way but I just loved everything about the story.

The narration at the times was a little off sounding. It was like a bad edit cut in at times but Ben did a nice job with bringing the story to life for the characters.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Alright if you read my reviews you know I like to ramble. I gotta start this review with a quick ramble. If you dont wanna read it then skip down to the next paragraph but if you do, then awesome and continue. OK Here goes my ramble….When I started reading I was a HUGE paranormal girl. I had 3 Vampire series that I would read and had on autobuy. Well one of the series fell apart which made me sad but the other 2 have stayed strong. SO I feel I am kinda critical of my first love: Vampire Paranormal. With that being said, I am over the moon excited by meeting the author of this series. It was at an indie author covention. We chatted briefly and I was stoked she sent me a book to review. I drank this series DOWN. I mean I am a HUGE, Gigantic fan of this series. Like I previously said, I am kinda critical of vampire series because the 2 I still read religiously are GOOD but this series is AMAZING!! I love the world, I love the characters. I just freaking LOVE IT!!!!

Ok so if you skipped the previous paragraph you are wanting to know about this book. If you read my ramble and gushing you REALLY wanna know about this book right??? So this is Sid’s book. Sid the smartass. Sid the jackass. Sid the player!! Well Sid meets his match in a feisty local cop named Lana. I have got to tell you I have loved each Warriors woman but Lana really got me from the go. I loved her spirit and she certainly gave Sidilious a hard time throughout the book. They have great chemistry and banter. I love character banter whether between love interests or just family dynamics. If you read this series you will appreciate how much laughing I did because Sid is a RIOT!! The one liners between him and Lana or him and the Warriors were spot on. My husband looked at me like I was nuts cracking up. He was like “your reading a vampire book and not a comedy?” I loved finally seeing the “private” side to Sid. His lack of family and the way Lana’s family adopted him….priceless. When he tells her he loves her and you know he has NEVER has someone to call HIS, made me tear up….huge crocodile tears people.

The side story of Dr. Hottie Mc Hott Stuff AKA Slade and Jill….Holy heck. I am dying. I mean WOW!! I cannot wait for their book and I swear to all that is holy it better be next because I cannot take any more waiting!! I NEED THEIR STORY LIKE TOMORROW!!! OMG and Adam and his search for his girl….breaking my heart already!!!! I mean to have your girl “sold” into a trafficking organization……pit of my stomach for him…….

The villains of this story. WOW! Teresa does a great job creating ‘bad guys” or people you hate. OMG Alice I wanna kick her in the ovaries!! And a certain bad guy is revealed and I remember saying “Shut the front door!! No WAY!!! ” Also the bad guys and their hold over Lana….ugh stressed out!!! Like I said, she can create some seriously bad bad guys!!!

Ok so I hope that my ramble and gushing over this series has made you wanna one click the book already!! Because if you like Vampire or even paranormal this is an amzing series for you!!!

Duncan (The Protectors) Book 3:
Leader of the VC Warriors Cincinnati branch, Duncan Roark, has devoted his long life to the Warriors he calls brothers and the Vampire Council, protecting innocents of both the vampire and human race. Things change suddenly when it is ordered that he and his fellow Warriors train human Social Workers to protect themselves in their new world of vampires. Falling in love with a human was something Duncan never thought possible, but love her he did. Now instead of being the ruthless leader he was trained to be, his focus has turned to finding the woman he loved and let go.
Pam Braxton is outgoing and loves her job working with children, but when she realizes her live in boyfriend, Kenny Lawrence, has been using her and her job for his illegal activities, she becomes withdrawn, and her world is turned upside down. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she stays, trying to learn more of his betrayal so she could see him punished. That decision sucks her deeper into a relationship that has turned dangerous and abusive. Overhearing a plot that would put everyone she cares about at risk, she finds the courage to try to stop the monster who has threatened her friends and the man she truly loves. Now Pam is on the run, alone and with a secret that could change the already unbalanced world of vampires and humans.
As Duncan searches for Pam, the threat of losing his leadership role has the other Warriors worried, but their loyalty for Duncan is strong and they stand behind him. Duncan’s search is relentless; he knows he is not the only one looking for Pam. Even with his responsibilities slipping, he puts it all on the line to find the only woman he has ever loved. In a race against time, Duncan fights to find Pam before her past catches up to her. The Warrior’s path is clear: Find the woman he loves before the past finds her first.

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

WHAT DO YOU MEAN I HAVE TO WAIT!!! I AM SOOO NOT A PATIENT READER!! I WANT MORE LIKE NOOOOOOOW!

Ok so do you get the feeling I liked…er…scratch that…I LOVED this series? Well Good cuz I did. This book was an awesome addition to the series. It is Duncan’s story but it is also setting up for Sid’s book AND Slade’s (excuse me while I wipe my drool) future book.

So this story is a continuation of Book 2. Pam is missing and Duncan is lost…and a walking dead man *giggles at my pun* with out this woman. He has loved her for so long and feels awful for what he presumes she has gone through with the Ex-Kenny. When Pam finally shows up, we find out EXACTLY what Kenny was doing and boy oh boy was it a great shocker. I loved how totally out of character Duncan is whenever pam is around. This tough as, hard as nails, VC Warrior boss is a pile of mush at this woman…this half breed vampire. I loved that the minute he sees her he tells her straight up “You are mine and I will never leave you again.” Be still my beating heart. Well Pam has some big secrets that she spills to the guys about what Kenny has been up to. Now we see Kenny and boy oh boy is is a DB!!! Man, what a great BAD GUY!!!

I loved this book and how patient Duncan is with Pam and builds her shattered trust. He uses words but mainly his actions are the biggest assest in winning his girl….SWOOD and double THUD!!

Well lets get back to DB Kenny ok??? He has a traitor in the VC Warrior compound and they stir the pot and cause drama for MY WARRIOR Jared and his woman…GROWL!!!

Also poor half breed Jill has alot of reading time in this novel. She is such a sweetie and I love where I see her going in the series. She has been through so much but we never got to ‘see” her until this book. She prooves herself to be a great friend AND possible love interest?? HRMMMMM

Slade…again wipes the drool…do I need to say more….hot ,smart and alpha…donezo…check please!!! LOL

Like I said before, this book has alot going on and it sets up for a great story line/plot for the next book. Human trafficking of human girls………so if you like Vampires, and you like alpha males and you like a great story with twists and turns….you will not be let down!!!

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

I am in LOVE!!! Let me repeat this…I am in LOVE!!!! I am a huge Paranormal Vamp lover and this series is everything I want/need. The guys are alpha in a bug way. The girls are feisty. The bad guys are bad. The plot twists are TWISTED.

I met Jared in Damons book and instant *Swooning* happened. Don;t get me wrong i loved Damon but something about cocky, arrogant, flirty, teasing, all around good guy Jared made my hear kinda beat a but faster.

So this book starts with Jared questioning a bad guy from book 1. When outta nowhere a fiery redhead and her brother break into the WARRIOR COMPOUND, tie him up and take his prisoner. Jared is instantly attracted to the girl. They track her and her HALF-BREED bother down…yes people this is a new development for the Warriors that someone is MAKING half breeds…..and take back the prisoner. Well the half-breeds and the Warrios begin to work together. Jared finds himself watching the redhead because she gives him back all the crap and attitude he throw at everyone else and he LIKES IT!!! The couple begin to admit their feelings and fears over being in a relationship because he has NEVER been in one and she has had nothing but terrible ones. I loved how open Jared was and how he would accept her challenging him. Her challenges often opened his eyes to so situations that were so new to him….like feeding from an ex-bootie call…not a good decision Jared…….

If you enjoyed the first book of the series , I gotta tell you this one is way better. The plot was thick and does an awesome job setting up for book 3. I am totally downloading it right this second to get it started. The bad guy was kinda shocker especially since you dont see it coming. The good guys are having some major betrayal and it is seriously undermining their abilities to work with the human police and instill faith in the human population.

Anyway, I loved this book and am sooo excited that I met this author. I just cant stop grinning about these books!!!! AMAZING!!!!

Goodreads

I purchased this audio book.

The narration provided by Virginia Rose was great.  She did a wonderful job varying the voices and giving emotion to the characters.  A bad audio voice can ruin a book so fast, but she did a fantastic job!!  I was totally engaged and hooked by how she told the story.

Here we go with my long-winded story…lol…if you read my reviews you are used to this.  I met Anna at a book signing but she was also lined up to attend my signing.  I like to read something from each author, and this was the perfect time to grab her plus get her opinion.  Now I like military but my bestie LOVES military so I knew buying her a book would be a great gift idea.  After talking to Anna and hearing her say Audio…my dog ears perked up at that comment….this was the series I picked for me.  LOL

This is the spin off series from the alpha series but I didn’t feel lost or like I missed anything at all.  The characters are all introduced, and I would have thought this was just a regular series had Anna not told me it was series two.  So anyone who likes to stay in “True order” you are ok to start here.

Nate and his fellow RISC team at hanging out having a beer and razzing each other like single dudes do.  When Gracelynn steps out on the patio his whole body is on high alert.  He must meet her.  He ends up scoring a secret date with her on the guise of planning a bachelor/bachelorette party together.  The chemistry between the two is off the charts but his military buddy and her sister are like NOPE.  You are a dirty dawg!!  Stay the EFF AWAY from Gracie!!  Of course, he listens…bahahha nope.  Gracie, of course listens BAHAHAHA nope. The couple begin a slow dance and the steam is off the charts.  When things change and Gracie has to go undercover with Nate as her “Handler” everything gets blurred REAL quick for the two.

The story of why and who is after Gracie was a good one.  I enjoyed all the god guy/bad guy stuff and how the team was working together to stop the terrorist.  I will say I giggled at the villains voice in the audio because it totally is the perfect villain voice!!

Now I will say there were a couple times I did eye roll at the “women are helpless” but then just let it go because hey its not my book.  But yeah, once or twice I was like REALLY Girl???  All in all, I loved the book and can’t wait to download book two audio.

Author of the exciting R.I.S.C. Series, Anna Blakely brings you stories of love, action, and edge of your seat suspense. As an avid reader herself, Anna writes what she loves…strong, Alpha heroes and the intelligent, independent heroines they love.

Anna’s dream is to create stories her readers will enjoy, and characters they’ll fall in love with as much as she has. She believes in true love and Happily Ever After, which is what she will bring to you.

Anna lives in rural Missouri with her husband and children, as well as several rescued animals. When she’s not writing, Anna enjoys reading, watching action and horror movies (the scarier the better), and spending time with her amazing family.
