#Review #Audio #Shifters #Paranormal – Found in Hope: An Adult Paranormal Romance (Wolf Creek Shifters Book 2) by H. R. Savage

Found in Hope (Wolf Creek Shifters, #2)

He’s second in command and known for his commitment issues…

Jamie never questioned his playboy antics—until he’s suddenly surrounded by doting couples and mated wolves. Convinced a night out is exactly what he needs, what he ends up with is a one-night stand…at least, that’s what he thought.

She has nothing but trouble written all over her…

Skylar is a witty she-wolf with a sassy mouth and a past full of secrets—a past she’s desperate to escape. That’s why she came to Wolf Creek seeking refuge from the trouble she left behind.

Jamie’s relentless quest to discover more about the mysterious wolf with silver eyes leads to a sexy game of cat and mouse. But lines start to blur when demons of her past hunt her down and become a threat to everyone he loves.

Now Jamie needs to decide if keeping her safe is worth risking the safety of his entire pack.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review, but I did purchase the audio book to listen too as well.  I enjoyed the narrator for the book.  She did a great job differentiating between the multiple POVs and characters.

I really enjoyed getting to know the main characters of this series in book 1.  When I saw Jamie was getting an HEA in this book, I was sold!!!  He is the player, but he seems to maybe be a little envious of all the couples and love he is seeing????? The playboy might be ok with settling down….maybe….meh prolly not.  LOL

Skylar and her sister Em are running.  We don’t know much but they are in need of a pack that will help packless wolves.  When she finds Wolf Creek, she decided to go out for a drink but quickly stumbled into a tall dark drink of waters bed.  She leaves after her delicious one-night stand to discover he is the Beta in her new possible pack!!  AKWARD!!!

Skylar and Jamie have this crazy intense chemistry, but Jamie is also falling for her little siter.  He is the sweetest guy in the world to Em and treats her like a little sister.  Skylar and Jamie both are so afraid to admit their feelings and so when her past catches up to her, their fear is what actually causes them to have issues.  Communication is a big issue between Jamie and Skylar thought the book.  They both have pasts and they both are so scared.  He is afraid to open up and be destroyed by a woman.  She thinks admitting your feelings makes you weak.

I gotta say….I am so flipping excited about book 3.  If you read book one then you know how much Killian LOVES Aidan the Warlock.  Welp friends it seems he is going to be getting an HEA and the love match is going to be a wild ride!!!!

Author H.R. Savage (Heather) started reading romance at an age that made her father cringe as she tried to hide the cover behind her hands. She technically finished writing her first book in Junior High, where it mysteriously disappeared in a reformatting incident. Due to the encouragement of her English teachers at her small town school in La Verne, California, she never lost her love for the art. Now a woman who swears by the power of coffee, Chinese food, and wine (not necessarily in that order), she decided it was time to create stories from the characters in her head.

Lost in Vengeance (Wolf Creek Shifters Book 1)

Her fate is sealed…

Without a pack there’s only one thing about Catrina’s future that’s certain. Death. But all she cares about is avenging her parents’ murders, and being part of a pack will only slow her down.

After being wrongfully imprisoned in a wildlife sanctuary, Catrina catches the attention of the Wolf Creek Alpha—Killian Stone. He wants her in his pack, but Cat refuses to submit, not when she’s come this close to finally getting the revenge she craves.

But he’s determined to save her…

Killian will do anything to uncover her secrets. There’s no way he’ll stand by and watch her self-destruct as a lone wolf because of a past she can’t change.

As their attraction grows Cat starts to doubt every decision she’s ever made. Killian shows her what it’s like to be part of a family and proves to her she doesn’t have to be alone.

Torn between a future with a loving pack, and a past she’s been shackled to for so long, Cat needs to decide if she’s willing to move on…or lose the last hope she’s ever had of finding peace.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I was given the ebook from the author for an honest review but I did purchase the audio book to listen too.

I am a sucker for a shifter series.  I also loved this authors dystopia book and so I politely begged for this book as well.  LOL  I will say I am very excited for a new to me series to continue to read.

The narration for this story was enjoyable.  Sometimes, you can get a narrator who you just don’t think fits the story, but Skylar Summers hit each voice perfectly.  I really enjoyed her Scottish accents.

Before I start the story review I will say there are times I felt the story did drag a bit BUT since this is the first book in the series, I chalked it up to world and character building.  The excessive details about random things would pull me out of the story at times but over all I still liked the story and am ready for book 2.

Killian finds a feral shifter who is being held in a human zoo/sanctuary when he goes to get her.  Right from the start he knows she is different but does not understand how or why.  We meet Catrina who has been through the biggest loss of her life and is scared.  She was hidden away while her parents were being killed and then ran…for 6 years in wolf form.

We see Killian, Jamie and the rest of the pack welcome Catrina and try to help her acclimate to the human world again.  We also see the chemistry between Killian and Cat.  Its very instant they have a drive to touch and see each other all the time.

We soon deal with pack jealousy over Killian’s obvious affections for Cat.  We see Cat making friends and forming family/pack bonds even if she denies it.  But Cat is looking for revenge against those who killed her parents.

We soon meet the “bad” people but don’t understand what is happening except we know they want Cat.  I will say as the story starts to unfold with who is looking for Cat, her past is opened up and we learn about her parents and life pre-murder, you cant help but feel sorry for her and all her loss.  However, seeing Killian stand and support her even if his wolf gets a smidge jealous made me giggle….oh Killian.

The end of the story was super interesting.  I liked the twist of what made Cat “special”.  I also look forward to Aiden and learning more about him. But first up is Jamie in book 2 and I feel like Mr. Playboy isn’t loving being single after all he says.

#NewRelease #Zombie #Dystopian #KU – Captured, Ruins of Play Azul #1 by H. R. Savage

CAPTURED (Ruins of Playa Azul #1)

I was raised in a world full of more death than life, surrounded by the blood-curdling violence and nauseating stench of zombies.

And twenty years after the Outbreak, it doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon.

After a devastating loss rocks my little group of survivors, I’m forced to venture out of my comfort zone in an attempt to find help—straight into the impenetrable walls of El Castillo.

But The Knights don’t take kindly to my mission, and when their leader, Gunner, captures me, everything spirals out of control. My captor suddenly becomes my ally as we’re thrust into a war of Gunner’s own making.

A war that threatens not only his people, but my own.

NOTE: True to an apocalyptic world, CAPTURED has dark scenes that may trigger some readers. However, it is not a Stockholm Syndrome Romance.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

Ok so before I start my review, I am going to say Zombie books are my JAM!!!  I mean I love them and get excited when I see one because I LURVE ZOMBIES!!  So because I love this genre I am a bit picky and can tend to be a bit harsh on my reviews.  I want the book to take me away but also be realistic.  This book did an awesome job of both.  I was so impressed with this new to me author and her ability to craft a story that was believable.

Thea and her dad, along with Jason and a group of others have been hiding for years in an old prompt care building.  They are hiding from the dead AND the living.  The Moonlighters and the Knights her dad said are not groups to get involved with.

When tragedy strikes the group, Thea makes the bold and stupid decision to leave ALONE in search of medicine for one of her kids…her family….her reason for being.  She stumbles into the Knights “city” and everything changes for Thea.

Gunner is not happy his fortress has a weakness.  He also is not happy with the spitfire who keeps getting under his nerves.  When the two come to an agreement to help her people is when we meet the really bad people. The Moonlighters.  These are the people who you fear in this kind of world.  The take what isn’t yours kinda people.  The Knights and Thea soon become a team when the Moonlighters again cause strife for Thea and her family.

The story of Gunner and Thea falling in love but also respecting the hell out of each other and their opinions.  I mean he is this strong alpha but tells Thea she wreaks him at every turn because he can’t be without her.  Although he was a bit of a dick one morning with Jason…..REALLY Gunner…just pee on her already!!

The story is so fast paced.  I started reading and was like WTF I am at 50% in the blink of an eye!  The story of family and stress…so much stress in these worlds but also of finding someone who you can love with your entire soul.  Finding someone in this hella crazy world is something you can’t deny or refuse.

The side characters are amazing but Jason…my heart aches for him and Vi because she is hilarious, and I think maybe even a bit crazy.  I pictured Harley Quinn when I read her parts…LOL  do you understand now???

I cannot wait for book 2.  This story says its ends on cliffhanger, but I didn’t think it was terrible.  Its more of a natural, expected continuation to the story.  One I will definitely be reading in March when its released.
