#wotr21 #attendingauthor #novella #DualReview -Quinton (Ariel Kimber 6.6) by Mary Martel

Quinton Alexander is the head of his coven, or so he thinks.

He’s the type of man who would go to any extreme to protect his loved ones, and he’s also the type of man who would do anything it took to make sure they are all happy.

He grew up in a way that taught him that the only thing that really mattered in this whole world was keeping the people you love safe—a lesson he learned at a very young age from his twisted, sadistic father.

But sometimes in a man’s life, it’s nice to know that the people you love care just as much about you as you do them. Sometimes, it’s nice to be able to put yourself first for once.

Especially when it comes to the girl of your dreams, whom you have to share with the rest of your coven.

When it comes down to it, though, who’s going to go to extremes to protect the leader of the coven when he needs it? Who’s going to keep him safe? Or is he going to have to do what he always does and look after himself?

Quinton Alexander is an Ariel Kimber Novella. It’s a part of a reverse harem series. It contains mature content and is best suited for readers 18+.

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

Finally in the mind of the beloved uncle panty thief. We finally learned why he is the way he is and why he can be such a asshole to people. When growing up Quinton was tortured and abused by his father and while he was the beloved more like hated council members would watch but Quinton would rather he deal with the abuse instead of his mother or nephew. So having nightmares about reliving his childhood is making sleeping less and less. But he will do anything to protect his family, and do anything to protect Ariel the only girl to get into his heart and stay there so much that he went and bought her 2of the most adorable hairless kittens which steals the entire covens hearts Bone and Ash steal the show. But once he has them they uncover a shit ton of issues with the seller and it spells out trouble for uncle Q. Will be make it out without his past coming back to kill him and hurting the ones he truly cares about the most or will they continue to hide and be careful. Omg omg omg I love uncle a so much this story is  perfect the one liners are great the sexy scenes are hawt as can be.

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

My future baby daddy finally gets his own POV novella!!  Franz it did NOT disappoint.

So Quint/Uncle Quinton/Uncle Panty Thief loves our girl Ariel with a fierceness that even he is scared of and shocked by.  He will do anything to show her how much he loves her even buying her things he never in a million year would have thought of buying AND well..trying to keep them for himself.  LOL

I loved this book because we get to see what is actually in his head and at times, he is a bit of a drama queen.  LOL  For real baby let go of the secret thread ok!! Ok!!  But we get to see him bonding with Ariel and Tyson…and yeah, its good bonding *wink* What I really loved was finally seeing what happened to him as a child.  I mean we kinda knew his dad was all kinda of awful but year having him relive moments made me hurt for the little boy he was.

I enjoyed meeting new characters and wonder what crazy Finn will bring into the coven’s lives plus how will Bone and Ash respond to the family.  But I am so ready for the next book…..and maybe a little Salt and Pepper Twin loving!!!

Cursed Whispers by AJ Renee

Cursed Whispers (Broderick Coven Book 3)

Animals were Max Broderick’s life.

He wasn’t only a veterinarian. He spoke with animals, quite literally, on a daily basis.

He rescued a wolf on the verge of dying and was shocked beyond belief when she turned out to be a beautiful werewolf.

Claudia Lupita wanted two things: her daughter and as many miles as possible separating her and the monster who’d been holding them captive for years.

Determined to protect her, Max enlists help from his closest circle.

Can they overcome her past, or had she lived through too much to accept her mate?

Broderick Coven Series:
Cursed Love
Cursed Sight
Cursed Whispers
Cursed Touch
Cursed Luck

My 5 Star Review

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

I will admit. I was curious about Max and his gift to talk to animals. #DogLover I kinda figured he would be my absolute favorite of the Broderick family and I am right. Now if we are talking about the cast of characters in the series, Peter wins hands down, but Max is my favorite sibling.

Max is the sweetest guy who is still coming to terms with his family lineage and powers. He is troubled when he hears someone or something in the woods at Brandy’s baby shower. When he saves a wolf/woman. He is instantly bonded to her. He wants to do all he can to hep her without freaking her out at the same time. He is also freaked out at his reaction to this damaged woman but can’t not be near her.

Claudia is a warrior…that is the only way to describe what she endured and survived. She appreciated the soft and kind man but also had her walls up due to her belief all men are bad. When she sees him for what he really is, a gentleman, she learns to trust him but also worries about what she is feeling for him.

When Max and the pack vow to help her find her daughter and avenge her abuse, she is over her head with emotions for these people. Claudia slowly learns to heal and love while having the support of the pack and the Broderick family at her side.

I have to say this book is my favorite in the series so far. But man, Peter needs to find some love. I feel bad for the alpha. But I am excited for Carter’s book to be next!!

Second and Short by Michel Prince

Second and Short: Book 2 of the Love by the Yard Series

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.
In book two of Love by the Yard: Offensive linemen are considered the silent protectors of the game. Always expected to be there, but never seen by the fans. Whether by accident or circumstance, Dalton Gresham has been known as the Blood Thirsty Bear of the Gridiron since his rookie year. With fans wearing number seventy-seven with fake blood dripped on it, can this giant in football shake his monster status?
Having hidden away at Lost Lake, Wisconsin, the last thing Willeen Fire needed was publicity. The tall, voluptuous woman has a beauty she hides behind flannel shirts and engine grease while staying off the grid. When Dalton first meets Willeen, the last thing he thought was she was a woman in need of protection. But as he falls for her, the natural instinct to protect is screaming in his ears.
Can Dalton stop being the monster he’s been labeled and become the one who will finally save Willeen from the man hunting her?

My 5 star review 

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

The narrator was great in this book. Logan has narrated several books for Michel and I love his ability to change voices. His narration brings you into each story. You get lost in his voice and his reading of the stories.

Dalton was a favorite side character in book 1 so I was happy to see him get a book. Granted I thought he might hook up with Dani’s school friend after the way the two seemed to eye each other. Dalton is a gentle giant who is lost in his “persona” for the Chicago Grizzles. He wants to make a mark, but it seems they want the giant lineman to play a violent man when he is far from violent. When he gets injured, he is sent to cool his heels and recuperate from the injury. He starts off badly right at the start when he “ASSUMES” (we know not to do this right?) that Willie is an old redneck with a dirty flannel. He is stunned stupid when he finds out Willie is the hottie who is getting his cabin ready for his stay. The woman was his perfect size in height and curves.

Willie is enchanted by Dalton and his sweet character but can’t understand why everyone thinks he is an aggressive man. When he finds out his “character” she is surprised and helps him realize being himself is the best way to be. The two start to build a relationship but Willie is so scared of wanting more since she cannot give that. Willie has a past she fears and is frightened to find her.

When the two finally take a step forward, Willie’s past crashes into them. She makes a choice which Dalton is not a fan of but will do anything to get his girl. When you love someone today, tomorrow, forever…you can’t let them go.
Again, I love the fact Michel brings a gritty and vile bad guy to the story. Michel writes great bad guys that you hate and can’t wait to see get their butt kicked!! LOL

His One True Mate by Miranda Lynn

His One True Mate (The Night Shift Series Book 1)

Billionaire tech genius, Leo Lancaster is accustomed to hiding his truth behind mankind’s materialistic comforts.
But no more. The lion within him is on the prowl for a mate, and his primal instincts refuse to be ignored. Driven by his shifter side, he embarks on a journey across the globe to claim that fated bond.

Thankfully, he doesn’t have to venture far. Sauntering by in heels and a curve-hugging pencil skirt, everything about Katrina calls to him. To Leo’s great regret, she needs a bit of convincing.

Katrina Denmark is on the run from a past determined to destroy her.
By focusing her life on helping others, she battles to overcome the fears that haunt her. Finally, she’s starting to feel safe. In control. Until the lioness side of her begins aching to submit to Leo. Terrified of her own growing desires, Katrina is deliberating over whether to take a chance on Leo when the deranged monster she’s spent years trying to escape catches up to her.

With her life and freedom on the line, will Katrina allow Leo to stand beside with the ferocious love of a mate? Or will her own fears force her to face the looming darkness alone?

My 5 star review

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

This series is a MUST read for me….a PNR reader at the core. I love the characters and the way Miranda keeps the storyline fresh. Each book I feel she brings something new and some kinda new evil that the pack must overcome. This pack might be spread throughout the globe, but they are family through and through.

Oh Leo. He and his lion have been on my radar for a long time. We have watched him help Casey and her new pack. We know he helped Jerome build his pack but what about Leo?? When will he get his love and find happiness?? Well a certain therapist he secured for Casey’s pack seems to be the one who will give him all he needs and more….love, companionship, sass, and heartache. Yes, I said heartache.

Leo has A LOT to deal with in regard to Katerina AKA Kat. She is a broken woman who helps other broken women but never really looks to heal herself completely. Kat has been through some stuff and now when she thinks she has found a place to belong, along comes Leo making her lioness want MORE while her human side is petrified. Her experiences with alphas and mates have not been good. Casey and Mack are a strange concept given what she has seen growing up.

Kat’s father was a power-hungry alpha who treated the females in his pack terrible. What she endures is horrifying but her ability to escape and mend herself just enough to help others is amazing. However, Leo sets her off kilter and she soon is at war with herself over this alpha male. That hussy lioness in her sees Leo for all he is but her human side is so afraid she pushes.

Their story is full of chemistry and is action packed. When Kat’s past shows up and tries to ruin her future, she is a mess. Leo can’t handle the fact his mate is in fear and will do everything to protect what is his…his love…his future…his mate…HIS LIFE!!!

Friends, this book is seriously a perfect addition to the series. I am so excited at where it looks to be headed and ya’ll DJ is hella delicious!! Just saying. I said it first here!!!!

Dirty Crown by Mary Martel

Dirty Crown

I always held hope that the day I left the compound would be the day I found freedom.

I was wrong.
My future had never really belonged to me. My father laid claim to it the day I was born, and I had been a stupid, naïve girl to wish for anything different.

As the heir to my father’s immense empire, my crown sits heavily on my head as I navigate my way through dealings with the criminal world while trying to stay alive.

Unfortunately for me, my crown and my hands are forced to get dirty along the way. Thankfully, I’m not expected to do it alone. Roarke, my deadly bodyguard who’s been by my side since I was six, is my shadow and always will be. I also now have Alessio, the cold, tattooed hottie, Roman, who conceals everything with fakeness that comes far too easily for him, and the alluring but sweet brothers, Tito and Enzo.

When bullets start flying, and people begin dying, my five guys not only stand behind me as the queen of their empire, but they also prove they have every right to be there by getting their hands just as dirty as my own.

Dirty Crown is a full-length, standalone reverse harem novel. This book is recommended for readers 18+. It contains sexual situations, swearing, violence, and some dark themes. It also contains MM as well as MFM.

My 5 star review

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

I am a Mary whore. I will read all she writes because they are dark, gritty, bloody, sexy as fuck, hilarious, and wrong all at the damn same time. I think I need therapy, but her books are all I ever  want in life. The crazier the character, the more I love them. The more broken the male, the more I need to have them in my stash of book boyfriends. This group of men do not disappoint…broke, alpha, arrogant, and sexy as hell men dominate Vallie’s life.

Valentina has had a life of squalor with her bodyguard Roarke to protect her in this compound. Her father is THE Mafia boss, and he loves her so much he treats her terrible. One day she is sprung from her hell to be thrust into a new roll…his puppet with his picked “husbands” for her. Yes, plural husbands. She is not willing to play his puppet, but she goes along with it until she and Roarke can figure it all out. When absolute chaos ensues, she becomes the head of THE FAMILY with her men. Friends, there is a grenade scene that absolutely cracked me up…..I mean I had mad Boss Bitch Vibes all day long for Vallie.

I loved all of her men. Roarke is delicious as her boytoy/bodyguard/lover. Enzo is the sweet one who is just as deadly who enjoys time with Roarke as well as Vallie. Roman with his crazy laughter and boy next door charm who is also scary as hell. Alessio who rules the house and the guards with brute force only we could love. Tito is a bit of mess who needs to figure stuff out but his love for Vallie is never ever to be questioned. But I did wanna nut punch him a time or two. However, If I could also see a Hawk enter this harem, it would be day made but I don’t think the MC President would be willing to share with the guys…darn. I guess just being her bestie will have to do.

This book has so much going on and I loved all the violence and grit, but all the sexy time was just as delicious!!! If you’re a Mary fan this will make your list for sure!!!

Compromised by H.R. Savage

COMPROMISED: An Adult Post-Apocalyptic Romance (Ruins of Playa Azul Book 2)

We left our home in a blaze of fire…

Gunner and I clung to the hope that we were leading our group to safety. However, in the unfamiliar mountains we find something we weren’t expecting–a hidden group of people…and someone I thought was dead.

Creekside Camp offers the promise of new beginnings for our injured and hungry people, and Gunner and I are thrust into a new normal. The idea of an ordinary life with him hung in front of me like the proverbial carrot.

But secrets threaten to unravel our tentative happiness and we are suddenly confronted with threats from not only the dead–but the living as well.

Will Gunner and I finally get a chance toward happiness? Or will the secrets compromise everything we’ve worked so hard for?

NOTE: COMPROMISED is the second book in the Ruins of Playa Azul duet. You MUST read CAPTURED prior to understand the plot and characters.

My 5 star review

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

GGGGIIIIIRRRRL and Boys was I excited for this book!! I love Zombies and book 1 blew me right out of the damn water. I have been on pins and needles waiting for this book!!!

Ok look Gunnar….Can I just say I get why Thea was on him as often as possible because DAYUM he is all that and a bag of chips. He is the most deliciously alpha male in this book series. No offense Jason buuuut your small potatoes.
Thea is the bad ass chick you wanna have as your bestie if the world goes to crap. She is the tough as nails person who will hug you and smack you upside the head to get your butt in gear and move.

The book starts up right where book 1 ended. The rag tag team of misfits are trying to get to the mountains after defeating the bad peoples…ok monsters…in book 1. Bad people are way too light of a term for them. They stumble into an unprotected camp and Thea’s past is in her face before she knows it. Talk about crazy and hard. The leader of the new camp is friendly but…uhm…how do I say it…a sexist pig?? *GRUNT* Women do women’s work, and the manly man protect the little women folk. *GRUNT* So yeah if you get the drift on Thea that doesn’t go well with her…LOL LAWD do not get me started on VI!! BAHAHAHA She is a load of crazy and I love her so much.

When Gunnar and Thea are attacked by someone in the camp…yeah tense is a word you can use to describe the next few chapters. Finding out that there is a secret that has been withheld from the camp is also something they have to deal with and decide what to do.

I am going to always hope for more from this series because I love zombies!! But Jason and Vi…Come on…a little novella. I need to know how she wormed her way into his broken heart!!

I’m reviewing just Charmed by Mary Martel

Oh my this was such a good story Clover is a kickass momma wolf who will do anything to protect her daughter. At the age of 17 Clover ran away from home after she had been raped by her father’s beta wolf and she then found out she was pregnant and she would not let her daughter be around a monster like that. But 7 years later she found herself heading back home where she would hope her daughter would never know. But with the death of her father she knew she would be the new alpha but going back home would mean facing the one man who hurt you the most. Will she keep on the journey home or will she take her daughter and turn around and run in a different direction. Oh I loved this story and Rosie is hilarious I loved that little girl and her mom is just as amazing.

This review is for Mary Martel – Charmed

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

This was a great quick read and I would love more of this would and clover and her guards.

Clover took off as a teen left everything and everyone she knew. She was the Alpha’s daughter and wheat she endured she felt would have crumbled the pack. After being away for several years she feels the called to take her place as Alpha.

Upon arriving home Clover realizes a few things. First, her pack still loves her and still has her back. Not only do they have her back but her daughter, Rosie’s too. Her dad knew she would return and placed three men as her guards.

There was instant chemistry between Clover and the three guards. Gunn, Price and Black have known Clover was the one before she ever arrived home. I enjoyed reading about this pack not only Clover, Rosie, and the guys but also her aunt Layla. I loved that Rosie nicknamed Black the silver one and wrapped all three of them around her little finger. This was an enjoyable read but really would like more.

Favorite Quote:

Losing a parent lift a hole inside your chest that never healed, no matter how often you tried to plug it up. The pain faded in time, but it never fully went away. Some memory would crop up out of the blue and hit you right in the feels. Next thing you knew, your ass would be on the floor bleeding form an invisible wound.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh Dash our loving, dark brooding, scared soul, ginger its his turn his story and I’m all for it. Dash is trying to find his place in life learning how to move on after the horrible house fire that took place at his cottage. Getting drunk and smashing shit with a sledgehammer, wasn’t the answer he was looking for, getting help from his brothers and Ariel would be the thing that helps him relax a bit, move on, and learn to realize that you can still have a memory without having a place to live where all horrible things happened to you. Ahh i jut over this novella Dash is just someone you want to hug and tell them everything is going to be ok.

Mary Martel was born in West Michigan and spent the majority of her life there. She currently resides in North Dakota with her husband, and her two beautiful daughters. She’s an avid reader, and when not writing she can be found with her nose stuck in a book.

Goodreads–  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/51164303-jordan-s-trials

Amazon– https://amzn.to/35qJRMG

Blurb
A grisly murder…a Dom with plenty to lose. My name is Jordan Caldera, and that’s me, the Dom with everything to lose. Yes, I hated the woman who threatened to expose the passionate BDSM lifestyle I share with my wife, Angel. But contrary to what the evidence implies, I didn’t kill her and my alibi is solid. Unfortunately, I was indulging a few powerful clients, administering to their dark desires, and they would sooner see me imprisoned than to publicly reveal their misunderstood cravings. My choices are simple-put my life and high-profile career at risk by exposing the truth or go to jail for a crime I didn’t commit.

Review
Wow first off another amazing  story that keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more. When the journalist is so close to dropping the story on who Jordan and Emma really were and what actually happened behind their closed door, they were on the verge of crazy panic not knowing what to do. Well when that very reporter ended up murdered Jordan really started to panic because when she clawed at his arm in the coffee shop days before he was afraid his DNA would be found and he was gonna be accused. Well that wasn’t the only secret he was hiding from his wife, but when the cops start snooping around Emma started wanting to know what her husband was up to at these important client dinners. And she got way more then she ever wanted to know but after being told the truth and that Jordan wasn’t going to ruin these big wigs life’s shit hit the fan and they had a huge fight. But would it be the last fight that they had with Jordan now on trial what will happen to these two once perfected lives with their slowly shattering around them.

-Vince-

She was perfect.

Her heart.

Her soul.

Everything.

I had been in love with Gigi Rodriguez for as long as I could remember. I had never been shy about my feelings toward her. Everyone knew how I felt. Except for the person who mattered most.

I needed her like I needed my next breath. Our souls called out to each other, entwining together to form a bond I had never felt with another person.

She was passionate.

Strong.

Mine.

Just when I thought I had her in my arms for good, an unknown force threatened to take away the only thing I had ever wanted…

-Gigi-

He was stubborn.

Obsessed.

Dominating.

Vincent Stone Junior was the very reason I danced. Every time I moved, I moved for him. He just didn’t know it yet.

It all started the night of his eighteenth birthday, but school got in the way and I didn’t see much of him for the next three years.

When he came home for good, I knew that he had one mission: To crack down the walls I had built.

I didn’t want to love him.

I didn’t want to need him.

But losing a piece of myself made me realize that I did in fact want those things. He taught me to love myself first and that he would be there, ready and waiting…

For me.

#wotr #attendingauthor #novella #partofaseries Rain Kimber (Ariel Kimber 5.5) by Mary Martel

Rain Kimber thought that finding his daughter and finally being able to be a part of her life after so many years without her would be the end of his adventure.

He thought he’d find her, take care of the woman who’d stolen his child away from him (you don’t want to know), and then the two of them would immediately become the family they’d been before she’d been taken. Rain would soon learn that life didn’t always work out the way you wanted it to, and really? That was a lesson he should have learned a long time ago.

But it wasn’t all about heartbreak for Rain. With his daughter he gained an entire Coven of family, even the ones he didn’t want. What father got along with all of his daughter’s boyfriends? Not Rain, that’s for sure.

Just as life wasn’t all about heartache anymore for Rain didn’t mean it was all about happiness and rainbows either. The Alexander Coven, the one his daughter had joined, seemed to be a magnet for trouble and Ariel Kimber was right in the middle of it. Which meant Rain was right there with her.

And he wouldn’t have it any other way.

I bought this book and this my honest opinion

Oh its time to get into the head of dear old daddy. Rain has finally been giving back what a was taken from him all those years ago, he can finally be a dad to Ariel and that’s what’s he’s wanted to rekindle that relationship. But when they go on a adventure to find the female witch that came into the shop they got more then they bargained for she has a child and she was dying. So now Rain not only had to figure out how to parent a teenager but now a child who wasn’t his. With the help from Ariel and her guys will they be able to help keep this little boy from the council or will they all fail. This story from Rains point of view was so good eyeing what made him tick and why for that very reason it happened.

#wotr #attendingauthor #partofaseries Black as Midnight (Ariel Kimber series 5 ) by Mary Martel



Ariel Kimber has finally settled into her life. Not only does she have a safe place to call home, one she actually loves living at, but she’s got the best roommate a girl could ask for. Oh, and he comes with an adorable little black cat as well.

And that’s not all that’s looking bright and shiny in Ariel’s life.

She’s got a job now, working at Tyson’s shop – Fortune’s for the Unfortunate. Her job is awesome and it’s made even better by the fact she gets to work where her father, Rain Kimber, lives, who is also another bright spot in her life.

Life is golden, shiny, and the potential for happy days – endless.

Until it’s not.

When the Council comes to call, you pick up the phone and answer… Or you suffer the consequences.

Only a fool wouldn’t answer, and Ariel Kimber is no fool.

With her coven of guys, her psychotic father and the honorable Marcus Cole by her side, she can make it through anything… Even the Council.

Having to deal with witch hunters and creepy counsel members Ariel and her coven couldn’t catch a break. After Adrian brought Ariel 2 new bodyguards who had magical tattoos that had a flash of silver when they found the female which they were to protect lucky for Ariel she was the winner. Little did they all know that Rain knew these guys that were now swore to protect his daughter and he was glad she had them. A lot of crazy things happen in this covens life that you wonder if they will ever catch a break. Also our girl Ariel finally gets the D she’s been waiting for. I loved this book another amazing story and I found it at a faster pace which I loved I can’t wait to finish the rest of this series I love them all so much.

Ariel is spending her first time ever celebrating Halloween with her guys finally getting to pass out candy to the kids all dressed up and she could be any more excited to do so. Her first time sharing things with Mother Earth and with the moon, with her guys it definitely was something new and also exciting. But things are a little bumpy in her relationship with them as she is getting more comfortable with them all but this hiccup makes her scared she could lose one of them if not all of them. One things for sure Ariel will never forget this Halloween.

#wotr #attendingauthor #novella #partofaseries Tyson (Ariel Kimber 4.5) by Mary Martel



Tyson is 4.5 in the Ariel Kimber Series.

Tyson Alexander is a long time member of a coven of witches who are more like brothers than simply friends.

There are seven of them total in the coven and all of them are male. The majority of them come together from broken, messed-up families and have nothing else in this world that matters outside of each other.

Then, six months ago, everything changed when they shared a dream about a beautiful, sad girl who was just like them. That’s to say, a witch.

Then, she moved in next door to them and changed their entire lives, turning everything upside down.

And they all, every single one of them, loved her for it.

Inside the mind of the first person to make Ariel feel uncomfortable at school but also made friends with her to protect her. Tyson has definitely had his emotions and everything all over the place from dealing with his crazy psychotic ex randomly messaging him, to trying to be there for his family. It’s a wild ride especially after he randomly buys a building which was a business his father use to take him to as a kid. Now it was all his and he might have regretted buying it on a whim but now it was his for his girl and he wasn’t sure what exactly to do  with it.

#wotr #attendingauthor #audiobook #partofaseries The Ties That Bind (Ariel Kimber series 4 ) by Mary Martel ; narrated by Melissa Schwairy

Ariel Kimber isn’t like most seventeen year old girls. She’s different because she’s a witch with magic and it’s rare for females to hold magic anymore. She’s settling into her new place amongst her coven of guys while she’s settling into her new home at the same time.

The Council’s appearance into their lives has put everyone on edge. With good reason. Ariel is forced to meet with one of them on a regular basis so that they can learn from each other. Really, though, they just want to get to the bottom of where Ariel came from and she is more than happy to comply with them.

Because there is one thing she wants more than anything else in the world, and that’s to find the man who has been searching for her for years. Her biological father.

And Ariel is willing to go through any and every thing to find him.

This is the fourth book in a slow burn Reverse Harem Series.

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this audiobook from the author and this is my honest opinion
Ariel is back with her guys, and they are on the hunt to find her father after finding a box in the back of who she found out was not her mothers closet. Now she has to deal with the counsel being near and trying to teach Ariel how to use blood magic. And with Chucky being told he could be Ariel’s new servant which is the last thing she wanted. Ariel’s father Rain found her and now wanted to be in her life, and now she was getting closer to the other guys that she hadn’t been close to. So with new relationships forming and her father in her life she couldn’t image anything bad happening well little did she know something or someone was going to be coming into her life from her guys past and try to sink her claws into one of her guys. This was once again an amazing book I just love it so much and this was my very first audio books to listen too.
