#wotr22 #ReleaseDay #ARC #Paranormal #MFM #series #Spinoff #99cents- Their Chosen Mate, The Night Shift book 3 by Miranda Lynn

A dominant mate, a loving submissive, and the woman who steals both their hearts.
Amelia decided a mate wasn’t in her future. However, her panther disagreed the moment he spoke. Their body came to life at Niko’s growly voice. When Miguel’s caring attention caused the same heat to build within her, she rebels against what fate has presented her.
Niko had no time for one mate, let alone two. A night at the club satisfied his needs when he needed to scratch the proverbial itch. He must let go of the stereotypes his prior pride taught him if there was any chance to accept his mates.
Miguel knew immediately that the bond between the three of them was an amazing, unique gift. His panther preened at the realization fate chose him for such a prize. He just needed to get Niko and Amelia to see and accept the connection uniting them.
Can Amelia overcome the scars from her life and accept the gift right in front of her? Can Niko soften enough to accept the gift fate presented him with? Can Miguel’s loving attention bring them all together once and for all?

Goodreads

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

Amelia, Niko, Miguel are a hot yummy story full of denial, love, acceptance, and full on brattiness.  LOL

When we first met Amelia, she was a mess. She had been bound and set to be sold in to trafficking.  She has been saved but still working on getting back to a more normal self.  She has become very close to Molly who was also with her in the cages.  When Molly gets lost in the jungle and Amelia also gets lost looking for her Niko and Miguel soon realize their change at happiness as a group will be lost.

Niko and Miguel had been “playing” together and both wanted more but were afraid of how they felt.  Miguel knew but Niko fought it.  When they both feel for Amelia, they have to confront their feelings for what the three could have.

Miguel was on board for having both.  Amelia was freaked out and full of her own trauma.  Niko was afraid to admit what he felt for them both.  The three have a lot of work and learning to communicate.  The guys also need to teach Amelia about the lifestyle they love. They need to get her motivated to want to try “things”.

There is a lot to this story between the growing love the group has, the magic being used, the bad dudes making an appearance, and of course people fighting the fates for what they love.  I loved the story and how this books moves the series ARC further. But Diego is still my baby daddy….sorry guys!! LOL

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

The narration of the story was perfect.  Brian did a great job bringing the characters to life for me!!

Shifter? CHECK
New to me Author? CHECK
Needing to read more of this series? CHECK…DOUBLE CHECK EVEN
Ok so there is no need to try and deny it. I am a shifter girl. I love paranormal and vampires are awesome but shifters….uhm…yeah…HAWT!!
So our girl Casey has had a hard life. She has bounced around and never had a home. She has one true friend, Jake, who cares for her now that she has aged outta the foster system. One night when Casey is going to visit him for some much-needed food, she gets a whiff of some strange men. Two of them scare her but one…well yeah…her gets her a little warm and fuzzy.
As Casey is dealing with some news about Mr. Tall Dark and Uberly Handsome, she is thrust into a crazy reality. She finds out that what she knows isn’t the truth and the truth is off the charts crazy!! Mr. Tall Dark and Handsome, Mack, is the Alpha’s son and he gets her girlie parts a tingling!!!
As her reality is starting to sink in, even more shifter reality is thrust in to her. She must pick a mate or her father who is not a nice man at all will come claim him for his pack. Good thing those girlie parts were already tingling and her shifter cat already claimed Mack as her mate.
The story line was different in what happens during the great war. The idea of co-mingling shifter species was also awesome. I haven’t read books with different shifters all living under one alpha before so I enjoyed a new spin on my favorite genre.

Mother to two boys, 3 four legged babies, and wife to a loving husband who doesn’t mind the extra voices in her head. Miranda grew up on a dairy farm in Illinois, but calls Portland, TN home now. She is an avid reader, coffee addict, and loves her day job working at the local public library. Though her true passion is in creating her own worlds, characters, and stories for her readers.

#WOTR22 #TwinsieOfTheDayPam #Review – Love Letters Lost by Miranda Lynn

Book Cover

Genni

Being back in my small hometown for Gran’s funeral sent me into a full-blown panic attack, and at that moment, a handsome stranger swooped in, becoming my salvation. From first glance, Brian made me weak in the knees with his commanding disposition and firm yet gentle touch. He pulled me in.

I took a chance on him…and all hell broke loose. Caught in the crosshairs of a mob war, I’m kidnapped for the sole purpose of being used as collateral in a power struggle I can’t begin to comprehend. I believed he would save me though. I needed to trust Brian to get me out of there and to introduce me to the enticing world of BDSM. Now, my life is in his hands as we battle against the clock to ensure my survival.

Brian

Visiting Illinois to catch up with an old friend was an ideal weekend…made far more delectable when I saw her. Genni was a damsel in distress who awoke my Dom side with a desperate need to protect her..to care for her..to guide her into my world.

But there is evil out there I can’t shield her from, and it ensnares her in its ominous web. With my family’s background in high-stakes security, I call them in to help me track down her kidnappers. One way or another, I will get her back alive, and I will never let her go again.

*Love Letters Lost is part of Samantha A. Cole’s Suspenseful Seduction World

Goodreads

Review by Pam

Great Suspenseful Seduction.

So good! ML did a great job, joining the SSW. Just the right amount of suspense. Brian and Genni meet in sad circumstances. Right from the beginning, they are attracted to each other. Genni has only had vanilla relationships. Brian is a Dom in the BDSM world. Love the suspenseful seduction. I have read the Trident series books. Loved seeing old friends. I really want to see a book about Jason. To see if T Carter can straighten him out. From a True Fan…Pam James

Review by WOTR Momma Julia with permission from her daughter Madi.

Smoking Hot series starter for Miranda Lynn will not disappoint! Kat has been hiding with Mack and Casey’s pack for a year, she’s safe here. Helping other pack mates heal and be productive. When Leo shows up, who is going to help her. Both have their lions locked in cages, for different reasons, but still locked up, to keep them safe, hidden. Kat is in hiding from a horrible childhood, and a bad deal, from her father. Leo is protecting a brother, who is alpha of his pack, because he really had no interest. These two learn to trust each other to become true mates. I haven’t read a paranormal story in awhile, and I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Looking forward to the next one!

Hey friends!!  What a year!!  I admit I spent a lot of time this year with rereading oldies from 2012-2014 but I did read some great new ones to share with you.

The following authors are attending authors:

AJ Renee, Monica Corwin,  Miranda Lynn, Mary Martel and KL Kreig

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Here are my top 5 new reads for you in no order at all.

Cursed Luck (Broderick Coven, #5)

Edward Broderick was anything but lucky.

His intuition made him suave in both business and life. Unfortunately, his debonair style went out the window when an ethereal beauty slipped into his life. No woman had made him feel like a tongue-tied fifteen-year-old before.

Free-spirited Mia Hemlock didn’t live by others’ expectations. Yet her easy life was shaken by the arrogant and awkward, yet handsome, man. Not even her earth magic could ground her heart when she became consumed by the man.

Will they accept the goddess’s love match, or will they allow misunderstandings and greed to force them apart?

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

My 5 Star witchy review is HERE 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Vow to Protect

They call me a monster.

Murderous and hateful.

Beautiful but broken.
Nothing can calm the ever raging storm inside of me. As the ruthless leader of the Doubeck family there is a certain standard of brutality I have to uphold.

To be gentle or kind is a weakness I cannot afford.

That is until the day I meet her.

Beautiful, innocent, and so very afraid.

Valentina is a rival family’s daughter, and the little temptress has purposely tangled herself in my dark web.

She seeks me out, needing my help, but the price for what she wants will be steep.

Since my father’s death I’ve needed a wife to solidify my family name and this woman has piqued my interest.

We strike a deal intertwining our futures.

I’ll put a ring on her finger, own her body, keep her safe, and kill them all.

I make a vow to protect her at all costs.

That is until her secrets come to light, and I’m left with the choice of becoming the monster she’s only ever heard rumors about.

**This is a dark forced marriage mafia romance, that ends on a cliffhanger. It contains dub-con/non-con as well as other scenes that may be triggering to some readers.**

Her Reluctant Mate (Night Shift Series Bk 2)

How could anyone love him when they learn of all he’s done?

Kymber

Kymber Prescott knows her boss, Ricardo, is a horrible person, but she’s powerless to escape him. Even so, she‘s irresistibly drawn to DJ and refuses to let Ricardo hurt him, or his loving pride. To protect them all, she’s willing to gamble with the one thing Ricardo has yet to rip away… her life.

Tapping into the side of himself he thought he put behind him, DJ fights to free Kymber from Ricardo’s clutches. Will he get to her in time? Or will her freedom be auctioned off to the highest bidder?

Time Stamps by [KL Kreig]

Time stamps.

Our life is marked by them. Significant milestones to the seemingly mundane. All of them have a place. A purpose. Moments and chapters stacking on each other, building scars and memories. Creating stories that are only ours to tell.

But those stamps are finite, pre-determined. And eventually our allotment runs out.

This is our story. Our collection of time stamps. The culmination of our love, our struggles, our redemption and our heartbreak. This story isn’t always easy, but it is real. A genuine account of utter devotion, where every page is crammed with pure emotion and truth and the gift of loving another person more than yourself. Share with us in our dreams, our laughter. Cry with us in our sorrows, our pain.

Take this journey through our time stamps with Laurel and I, and I will meet you at the end.

~ Roth Warren Keswick

Ugly snot sobbing cry review HERE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Quinton by [Mary  Martel , 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+.

#WOTR22 #attendingauthor #spotlight – Miranda Lynn

Miranda Lynn

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

Miranda Lynn ..WOTR lifer, fun living, sweet, funny author of paranormal romance with a twist.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The first book as it lays the foundation for everything else you write after.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I try to think outside of the box, like intersperses matings, crossing continental divides to help the species as a whole and challenging the characters beyond their limits.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Keep writing but remember self care is just as important as the deadline. A stressed writer is no bueno.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

Depends on the season. I average 4 to 10 hrs a week. A full time job and family that’s all I a lot at this time.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Diego so far. He took me into his darkness and showed me that even characters like him deserve love. He also showed me how far someone will go for that love. His darker scenes were some of my favorite to write.

If any of your books were to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it? What book and who?

I would say His One True Mate. With Matthew McConaughey as Leo and Kate Hudson as Kat.

What is your definition of success?

Writing a book that readers love and that can inspire others to follow their dreams of writing themselves. Eventually the monetary side will also be a success, but for now the above are my successes.

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

DJ……MMMMM yes!!!  I have been waiting for you baby!!!  I wanted to know why you have such darkness in your soul. You back story did not disappoint at alllllll.

Kymber….girl you need a damn hug.  When you fall for the wrong man, it makes everything terrible but, in your case, it puts your life in jeopardy.

Ricardo, dude…you are not every going to be good enough for Kymber or man enough to defeat DJ.  Just saying.  I guess the lessons your daddy taught you, you should have paid better attention too!!

This book had me sitting on the edge of my seat because it was so well written!!  I mean DJ being able to control himself when he sees the monster Ricardo is but also keep his beast at bay….yes please….he is a great character.

Kymber has my heart in knots.  I mean gahhhhh we knew why she did what she did was to protect herself and DJ but guuuurlllll give that man your heart!!

When the dramatic twist happens and Kymber is in danger, I was seriously so glad that DJs people were there to help him . He needs to find Kymber before the fates take her from him!!!

Guys this book…gah I loved it.  I loved seeing DJ tell his story and I LOVED the reaction because I was even like DAYUM!!!!!!!!!!

#WOTR21 #Paranormal #witches #zombie #Football #Wolves #Shifters #Mafia #Dark #RH -Twinsie Angie Top reads from January 2021-June 2021 – Second and Short by Michel Prince, Cursed Whisper by AJ Renee, Dirty Crown by Mary Martel, Compromised by HR Savage, and His One True Mate by Miranda Lynn

Here are my top 5 books from January 1 to June 30th.  They are in no order so here goes!!!

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!!

Author H.R. Savage 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.

When she isn’t writing, outlining, or pinning pictures of hot ‘character inspirations’ on Pinterest™, she is spending time with her three beautiful children and handsome husband.
