#Review – The Billionaire Shifter’s Virgin Mate – By: Diana Seere


McDermott “Derry” Stanton is an old-money playboy who sleeps his way through half the world, one willing woman at a time.

A bear shifter, he never hibernates alone. Sometimes even one woman isn’t enough.

But when this irresistible billionaire meets Jessica Murphy, everything changes. The man who views life as a female feast suddenly acquires more discerning tastes. The only woman who can satisfy him now…

Is Jessica Murphy. He must have her. Immediately. Frequently.

Jess, however, doesn’t want any man, least of all a spoiled playboy who’s about to become her brother-in-law. A pre-med student with deep ambitions and a past filled with painful rejection, she’s all business.

Too bad Derry Stanton is her business. A frequent customer at the Platinum Club where she waits tables, and now the best man to her maid of honor in her sister’s wedding, the guy is everywhere.

And pretty soon, she finds herself everywhere, too.

In his arms, on his bed, between the sheets….

But sex is the last thing she needs.

Or it was until she meets Derry and starts hearing the Beat. And feeling a connection she’d never imagined, never dreamed, never hoped for.

It’s all too unbearably good.

* * *
The Billionaire Shifter’s Virgin Mate is the second book in the Billionaire Shifters Club series by Diana Seere, the paranormal pen name for two New York Times and USA Today bestselling romantic comedy authors. This book is a standalone *within* a series. Learn more about us on our Diana Seere Facebook page. 😉



This was the first book that I have read of Diana Seere. It is the second book in the series but I was able to follow this book without reading the first. I did like a few of the characters and a dislike for others.

McDermott “Derry” Stanton is the playboy of the family. His family is kinda unique it consists of three brothers which is two wolves and a mountain lion, and a sister who is also a bear. None of his siblings think Derry will find his mate because bears never mate one person.

Jessica “Jess” Murphy has one thing on her mind school she has no time for anything else. To pay for her schooling she gets a job as a waitress at Platinum Club. She is set off balance when she runs into Derry in the elevator. Derry is her sisters soon to be brother-in-law.

I liked the connection Derry and Jess have but their family interfered a bit too much. Between Derry’s brothers and sister and Jess sister these two have a mountain to climb. I did have a few characters that I would like to know more about like Edward and Molly but not sure how I feel about Asher. Here is a bigger story with Asher but his attitude holds me back from learning more about him.

Diana Seere was raised by wolves in the forests outside Boston and San Francisco. The only time she spends in packs these days is at romance writing conventions. In truth, Diana is two New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors who decided to write shifter romance and have more fun.

#Review #Contemporary #HoP House of Payne:Ice (HoP book 8) by Stacy Gail

One year ago…
Sunny Fairfax, daughter of a former Chicago mayor, had been tops in the marketing game. She’d taken a tiny tattoo parlor, Skull and Bones Ink, and turned it into the most famous studio in California. Then the owner and unrequited love of her life, Atticus “Ice” Eisen, fired her.

One year ago…
Everyone thought Ice had it all—a privileged Beverly Hills background, a hot ink-slinging studio and a kickass reality TV gig. The truth? He’d hated most of it, especially that frigging show. The only reason he’d stuck with it was because of Sunny. Then shadows from his past closed in, and he’d had a choice—let the one thing he actually gave a damn about get destroyed, or sacrifice everything.

The way he saw it, the choice was easy.

Sunny’s stunned when Ice walks into her new life in Chicago. He’s the newest tattooist at House Of Payne, and no amount of dodging him works. Wherever she goes, he’s already there, ready to melt her panties with hot glances, hotter words and the hottest kisses she’s ever known. But none of it makes sense. Why had he fired her? And how can she trust him now?

The shadows are back, but Ice is a different man now. He’ll protect Sunny from the darkness that’s been dogging his steps every day of his debauched and useless life, and this time he has to destroy it. He has to, because when it comes to convincing Sunny he’s a man she can believe in, he’s on very thin ice.

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Soooo every time I see or here this title all that plays in my mind is “Ice, Ice, baby. “ Lol!!!!!

It’s Christmas in Shy town and we are back with the gang at HoP you know our favorite crazy tattoo artists!!! Man, I love these people…..

Any who, like I said we are back but with a few new people. Atticus “Ice” Eisen and Sunny Fairfax.

Sunny is a Chicago native and a PR whiz. After all it was mostly her that brought Ice’s California Tattoo shop Skull and Bones Ink to the most famous shop in Cali.  That is until Ice fired her on TV and a show that she started no less.

Since the firing a year ago she came back home, which is good because her dad a beloved ex mayor is in poor health, but bad because she is working at a place that is the exact opposite of the Ink world.

Now, Ice has been in town since the summer and has sold his shop and taken a job at HoP and is ready to get his Sunny Day back.  Yes he fired her, yes he did it in a horrible way, but he had his reasons.

Sparks everywhere with these two folks, all over the place. Lol, from the first “Why the Hell are you here” scene to the “I love you” scene  these guys kill it.  Throw in a slimy. black mailing, tabloid owning father and lots of secrets and BAM you got yourself one heck of a story.

What I love about most about Sunny and Ice is they are not a couple who met a few years ago, they have been in each other’s lives since Sunny was a teen, went to college together, worked together to build something from nothing, and yes loved each other.

Yes, Ice did some really crappy things, but we learn why and he had a great reason and thought he was doing the right thing.

We also learn secrets always get out, its better to get it out there then for it to be twisted to be used against you.



A competitive figure skater from the age of eight, Stacy Gail wrote stories between events to pass the time. By fourteen, she told her parents she was either going to be a skating coach who was also a romance writer, or a romance writer who was also a skating pro. Now with a day job of playing on the ice with her students, and writing everything from PNR and cyberpunk to contemporary romance at night, both dreams have come true.

#WOTR19 #Review – Angel’s Collar by Anna Hague

Angel's Collar (Love Strictly Tested Book 1)

I have it all…until he shows me more.

I didn’t intentionally spill wine all over the most beautiful guy in the room, and one look at those icy-blue eyes brings on a major lapse in coherent speech. Jordan Caldera tells me his secret and wants me to join him. This is where my journey into submission begins.

So much about BDSM freaks me out, but at the same time, I can’t help but be intrigued. When I imagine Jordan doing those things to me, I can’t resist the adventure. Mind-blowing sex aside, my life is changing at an alarming rate and getting very complicated. Between balancing my career and my best friend’s concerns, the secrets I’m keeping are killing me.

What am I willing to risk for the new lifestyle I’ve embraced…and the man I love?


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

This is a new to me author. I liked the way the author set the scene for this book. We do not get the story while it is occurring but instead bits and pieces as Emma tells her story to a reporter.

Emma is a vanilla kind of girl and when she spills her wine on Jordan’s shirt her whole world is about to be rocked. Jordan introduces her to the world of BDSM. Jordan and Emma had things to over come mostly Emma’s fear to trust and to submit fully. Sometimes things work sometimes they don’t. Emma hits a low when she losses everything in her life her best friend walks away from her, she losses her job and she is trying to hold things together. When she reaches her breaking limit she could lose Jordan too.

I did like watching Emma and Jordan’s relationship grow and hearing it through Emma’s point of view. They had chemistry but like a lot of marriages things can change. The ending really has me wondering what will happen next in Emma’s life. One thing about this book was things changed in the blink of and eye. I am intrigued to know what will happen next.


For 25 years, I’ve worked as a sports writer. I decided now was the time to pursue romance fiction as an author. I found a great group of RWA author friends who have helped me tremendously.
I get great support from my husband, and although they don’t know it, my three parrots and dog give me a huge boost everyday.


#NewRelease #Review #Contemporary #MontgomeryInk Jagged Ink (Montgomery Ink:Colorado Springs Branch) Carrie Ann Ryan

The Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs series continues with a couple fighting to keep what they thought they had and gain what they didn’t know they needed.

Roxie Montgomery met her soul mate when she least expected it. When he asked her to marry him, she thought her happily ever after was only just beginning. Then, she found that walking into the sunset was much harder than her favorite books made it out to be. After a crushing loss, she feels as though she doesn’t know her husband anymore, or rather…she doesn’t know herself.

Carter Marshall has loved Roxie since the first time he saw her. But as the days pass between them, so does the distance. He doesn’t know how to show her that he’s all in, and honestly doesn’t know if she’s in at all. When an accident changes everything, they’ll have to decide if what they have can be salvaged, or if starting over is the answer. Or even possible.

Without fighting, without a true new beginning, sometimes, the remnants of what was lost can leave anyone jagged, shells of what they were before. It will take more than the idea of forever for Roxie and Carter to find themselves again, but as the Montgomerys know, nothing worth fighting for is easy.

 I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

We have come to the end of the Colorado Springs branch of the Montgomery tree with Roxie and Carter’s story.

If you are new to Carrie Ann Ryan”s Montgomery clan don’t fret you won’t be lost as each book in the series is a stand alone story, reading the other stories isn’t mandatory it’s just plain FUN!!!

Roxie and Carter’s story is a little different because they are already married, but that marriage is coming to a end and it isn’t because of a lack of love.

Ryan shows us what a lack of communication does to a marriage with this one and boy does she just rip those heartstrings apart with it.  As I said a lack of love is not what drives these two, Roxie and Carter have soo much love for each other that it is a beautiful thing and seeing that fall apart is just awful, however there is a happy ending in sight.

Falling apart, divorce papers, and a blind date is the push that is needed (Wow that is one heck of a push) to get Carter to see that what they need is communication and to fight for them.

Only Ryan can rip you apart and put you back together with a nice little bow and introduce the next Montgomery Branch in one awesome story.  She also showed me that no matter what talk to your partner, no matter what it is or how you think you’re being strong for them by not talking, because in the end it will just end up hurting you both more.



Carrie Ann Ryan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary and paranormal romance. Her works include the Montgomery Ink, Redwood Pack, Talon Pack, and Gallagher Brothers series, which have sold over 2.0 million books worldwide. She started writing while in graduate school for her advanced degree in chemistry and hasn’t stopped since. Carrie Ann has written over fifty novels and novellas with more in the works. When she’s not writing about bearded tattooed men or alpha wolves that need to find their mates, she’s reading as much as she can and exploring the world of baking and gourmet cooking.

#NewRelease #Review #RH – First Comes Loves: A Reverse Harem Romance (Matchmaker Book 3) by Jade C. Jamison

First Comes Loves: A Reverse Harem Romance (Matchmaker Book 3)

Can one woman possibly fall in love with more than one man at a time?

My name is Claire Seaburg and I’m an aspiring actress. You haven’t heard of me yet? Just wait. You will soon. You see, I’m in the third week of the new reality television show Matchmaker. It’s getting tough, because we’re down to three men—and I’m afraid I’m falling in love with them all. Will the man I end up with truly be the right one for me?

Or will I wind up in hell with the wrong guy?

Watch me as we get one week closer—and I do a few naughty things I just might regret…


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

ANNND Another one bites the dust.  Was I sad to see my favorite guy go?  YUP but doesn’t that always happen in those damn reality TV shows.

So we are now down to 3 dudes and TBH they gotta work for Angie to be all #TeamNewDude…LOL

SO Claire is a bit sad to see my boy go and the other 3 guys start to put the moves on for her attention.  ALL of the guys sneak some alone time with Claire in their own ways and can I just say…one of the ways is super hawt!!!

The host, Cat, I have my eyes on and I am curious what the guys say during their confessionals that Claire isn’t allowed to see that makes the TV audience vote the way they do.

Cat gives the guys a test and we see right away who is really listening to Claire and who is just trying to get her attention with muscles and flirting.

As always we are left wondering who is going to be cut in the final round and who will be the final 2 guys.  Since the last book will have the winner, I am super excited.

My thoughts on the final guys….

1 He is in it for the money the guys win

  1. He is in it to “Win” the competition. Claire is just a prize at the end.
  2. I am not sure but MAYBE he is my new #Team but he has some issues to work on

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging instead of Dirty Dancing, she—like Baby—won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance—and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

#WOTRAuthor – Broken Scars by J.M. Walker – Teaser

Broken Scars I ©JM Walker
(unedited and subject to change)

“How did you find me?”
“What do you mean?” I knew what he meant but there was no way I was giving in that easily. I didn’t know him. I may have been attracted to him, but I also wasn’t stupid.
“Online. You cracked my firewalls. How?”
“Ten down is—”
“Lily,” he barked.
I looked up, licking my lips. “What?”
His nostrils flared, his gaze following the swipe of my tongue as it slid across my bottom lip. “Answer the damn question,” he demanded, his voice husky.
I leaned back, crossing my arms under my chest. “Ask me nicely.”
His jaw clenched. “Lily.”
I raised an eyebrow. “Ask me nicely, Lucas.”
“Fuck.” He inhaled a sharp breath. “How did you crack my firewalls?”
“That’s not asking me nicely, but I really have no idea what you’re talking about. I don’t even know what firewalls are.” Although the words leaving my mouth were all a lie, I didn’t move my gaze from his.
He chuckled, rubbing the back of his neck. “You’re good, Lily Pad. You’re really good.”
“What?” I batted my eyelashes innocently. “I really have no idea what you’re talking about.”

My Boyfriend’s Dad

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

WHAT!!!!!!!!!!! Jade GUUURL!!! The sexual chemistry was oooooffffff the chain in this book. OMG I wanted to sample some of that tall drink of water AKA Her Boyfriend’s Dad AKA Logan.

Bree goes through a lot in this book. She loves her boyfriend Bren but why wont he take things further with her *wink*. I mean what teenage boy turns down a willing girl??? UHM not many but Brendan is all about “waiting”. Bree seeks advice from Logan, Brendan’s dad when things start to change and develop between Bree and him.

The two have some great chemistry and when things “progress” for Bree we can see and feel the guilt she feels. She cheated. Period. She cheated, and it will destroy her boyfriend. It will destroy their future. As the book progresses, we can see Bree is really conflicted about both the men in her life. She loves Brendan but why is she thinking about Logan. Why does being part from Logan make her so sad. Why is Brendan still not interested in her???

When things start to come out about Brendan’s reasons for waiting we think Bree and Logan MIGHT have a chance when a BIG Plot twists is thrown at us. I have to admit I felt so bad and sad for her with her new possible reality. But I still loved Logan and was praying to Sweet Baby Jesus to find away for our couple to be together.

The final chapter of the book was GREAT!! I loved the time hop. We got to see what everyone was doing and how everyone was feeling after a couple of years have passes. I kinda hope we might get a book about Brendan because he is a great character plus his HEA looks like a great read!!
