#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #PartofaSeries Love and War (Gods of DC 2) by Tricia Andersen


Jealousy doesn’t look good on Athena, the goddess of war and wisdom. Escaping her half brother’s happiness, Athena takes a prototype military jet for a joyride. An unexpected malfunction crashes it in a Georgia swamp. She wakes up to find herself in the cabin of the sexy yet surly Mack Bradshaw, a tow truck driver who pulled her from the blaze but doesn’t seem to want her or anyone around him. The attraction to Mack is primal, a force she can’t deny. Can she fight the urge to have sex with him or will she give up being one of the three Maiden Goddesses and surrender to him? And what will the rest of the Pantheon have to say about her big, bad savior?

She literally fell from the sky. Mack frees the blonde from the burning wreck of the jet and brings her into his home despite his dislike of virtually everyone. When the fiery beauty is near him, she sets off an ancient need, one his bloodline calls to him to act on. Can she accept his true nature and be his mate? And when an ancient evil threatens to take her from him for eternity, can he partner with her family, the Greek Pantheon, to save her?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I read this book when it was in an anthology.  I was excited when Tricia said she was expanding the story of Rhett and Morgan.  The anthology short story was good but the expansion was even better.

Rhett and Morgan were high school “friends”.  She was the nerd hired to tutor the high school jock.  They didn’t realize how in love they had fallen but high school being high school neither would face the music of friends for being with the other so they stayed silent with their longing.

Fast forward to Morgan saving Rhett from the darkest place he could imagine being after the War.  Rhett has serious PTSD and Morgan is all in for saving her friend and the man of her dreams.

Rhett and Morgan have a lot to deal with between her admirers and his ex-fiancée. Plus, they have to deal with his mental health from the war. The scars he carries are traumatic.  They have some blurring of boundaries and looking at what they want.

When Rhett and Morgan finally admit what they want they story is amazing and then another twist I didn’t see coming.  I was so invested in the couple and loved every chapter of the book,  I would have loved even a few more…..

Is this the end of the Hallow family?

The Hallows have been exiled from their home and the cell towers that sustained their income are burned to the ground. Their only hope rests on Caleb and Joshua who fly to Tokyo to plead for their contracts with LunaBit, the app company they work for. The night before their big meeting, Joshua is drawn to a blonde at a bar. After a night of amazing, sensual sex, he wakes up alone, bearing the mating mark of his ancestors, similar to the ones his six brothers already share with their mates.

When the brothers finally meet with Maya Johansson, LunaBit’s Vice President of the North American Division, Joshua discovers she is the woman who was his bed the night before. Maya holds secrets of her own, which includes being aware of what the tattoo she now bears means. She demands that Joshua returns to Los Angeles to negotiate the family’s contracts with LunaBit. Joshua agrees, willing to do anything to protect his loved ones in Minnesota. However, can he withstand a fabricated marriage, tension with an ex-boyfriend, and a new father-in-law that is pure evil incarnate? And can he save the Hallows home before they all fall to the vampires who want them dead?

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

 I have loved each story of each of the brothers and enjoyed what NEW story line they bring to the overall arc of the series.

Josh and Maya were certainly a good read.  Josh is the last single brother, and he is all about not settling down.  When a one-night stand turns into ever after…he is not so thrilled initially with his mate.  Josh teases his brother Cay about having one woman for the rest of his life when he gets to enjoy the single life while they are in Toyko.  The family’s gaming apps are in trouble with the owner, and they are being called to headquarters to deal with the mess ups.  Cay and Josh goes for a quick drink when all of a sudden he mating signs show up.  Cay laughs his butt off because he knows what’s going to happen.

Maya needs to cut loose.  Being the VP of the gaming company is cutthroat business especially when a ex is a rival for her job.  Chaz is trying to make Maya look incompetent so he can take her job.  Maya sees the tall dark rink of water and says yes to one night.  When she wakes up with the tattoo her behavior and reaction isn’t what Josh expected.

Maya does he best to keep Josh at bay, but the bond is too much. When she comes clean about who she is and who her family consists of, yup another awesome addition to the crazy Hallow family.  Maya and Josh go through a lot to make things work and find a way to be together they can both be happy with.  Throw in vampires, not so nice dad’s, demons, and ya know orphans the story takes you on a great journey.

I absolutely LOVE this series and cannot wait for more!!!  Plus I would like to add that more Joe is always good and this book had some Joe scenes to make this girl happy. #TeamJoeForever!!

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

Wow wow wow this book you might want to have a fan on when you are reading this one. Josh is the last single brother bound and determined that he don’t care if he finds his mate or not after dealing with all his brothers finding their mates. Well with the fate of the family business in the hands of their boss, Caleb and Josh find themselves in Japan for a huge meeting to try to save their jobs while fighting to save their homes and family from vampires who want them dead. At eh bar josh started feeling this odd urge he’s never felt before then walks in a beautiful woman no he’s at a lost for words he just knows he wants her naked in his bed, and that’s what happens. Little does he know that his new mate is the boss he’s about to have a meeting with to save the family’s contract and job. Maya does one thing work and don’t like to deal with feelings after her ex used her to try and get her VP job she has a hard time trusting men, while hiding a secret of her own. But when she spots Josh and wakes up with the mating tattoo she already knows what he is and what it means but she’s not willing to let it affect her job and what she needs to do. Will their new found relationship get in the way of business, and the vampires get what they want. Or in true Hallow fashion will the brothers over come everything against them with their mates at their side to take what is theirs. This book is hawt, hawt, hawt, and full of mystery  that will not disappoint at all.

#WOTR21 #Audio #SeriesStarter #Review #Mythology #Paranormal – Blood Lust, Gods of DC Book #1 by Tricia Andersen; Narrator is Claire Joseph

Blood Lust (The Gods of DC Book 1) by [Andersen, Tricia]

She doesn’t believe she has a soul.
She believes it was stolen from her when that bastard turned her into the creature she is now.
But little does she know, she does. What is there isn’t dark and twisted, defiled by the lust for blood. She is pure and loving, with a body and attitude that arouses me every moment of the day. And I will move universes and defy my father and mother to make her into something I’m worthy of loving, someone that will stay by my side through eternity.
I will fight the forces of the gods to make her mine. I won’t stop until she belongs to me forever. And how am I, just a mere fighter, going to do that?
Because, baby, I’m a god.

Goodreads

Review by Twinsie Angie

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

I want to start by saying I LOVED Claire’s narration.  I loved how she brought the characters to life.  A bad narrator can ruin a book but I loved what she did and how she helped the story come to life.

HOLY MOLY this book knocked my socks off!!!  Paranormal meets the Greek Gods??  Uhm YES PLEASE!!! When Tricia told me about this book, I was super excited.  When I finally got the book, I was ecstatic.  I can’t say enough how much I loved reading this book.  But remembering all the Gods from college, I was like “OMG Yes I remember them.”

Juliet is a typical vampire looking to score some blood.  Well our little vampire is a little more than usual because she actually cares about who she drains dry.  She strolls into the underground MMA fight looking for meal, when she sees the most beautiful and sexy man EVAH!!  She is all “Game on” with this one.  She knows he might be a bit more of a challenge, but she is ready for it.  She is stunned when all of a sudden, the man of hour is right there at the bar hitting on her …along with others things he does with her at the bar *snickers*

Ares, the God of War, is mesmerized by the vampire at the club.  He knows she will be able to “handle his appetites” so he dives into a night of fun with the little minx.  He is loving spending time with her because she challenges him at every turn and he loves it.  He can’t get enough of her telling HIM, the God of War, No!!  I love the banter the two have because they cracked me up a lot.

When Ares and Juliet discover there are serious emotions at play, they both freak.  The last person Ares loves was Aphrodite and we all know how wonderful their relationship turned out….not good if you weren’t aware.  The last person who Juliet loved broke her heart and turned her into the creature she is now.  Love and Trust is not something these two people can willingly accept from others.

His family hates her and wants her dead.  His ex has become a bit too clingy and needy…ya know I don’t want you but I don’t want anyone else to have you type of chick *eye roll*….her maker is all about claiming what is his again after hundreds of years, PLUS the vampire hunter is closing in on Juliet.  There is so much action and so many plot twists you never see what will happen next!!  I seriously hope we get another book really soon and I am BEGGING for it to be Aletha because I just loved her so hard but Pan would be pretty funny to see which nymph captures his heart.

Fear University (Book 1) by Meg Collett

I’ve always known I was a monster, and I don’t mean some teenage vampire shit either.

My mother abandoned me when I was ten years old because I have a freakish mutant disease that makes me incapable of feeling pain. I bounced from one foster family to another because too many people like to test my medical condition in a game of “Try To Make Ollie Scream.” At sixteen, I killed a man for taking that game too far.

Two years later, I’m still on the run in Kodiak, Alaska. Here, I’m the most dangerous person around, until I come face to face with a creature that should only exist in folklore. The monster is an aswang, and I, with my medical anomaly, am uniquely qualified to hunt the beast that haunts the night. At least, that’s what the two scarred, mostly crazy ’swang hunters tell me when they kidnap me and take me to Fear University, a school where young students learn to hunt and kill aswangs.

I arrive at the university a prisoner, but I stay because I finally find my freedom.

For once in my life, I belong. I’m needed. I make a home for myself inside the university masquerading as an old Alaskan prison. Something close to happiness warms my icy heart when I’m with my scarred, still mostly crazy tutor, Luke Aultstriver. For a murdering runaway like me, Fear University is a haven where I can put my skills to good use hunting monsters in the night.

But when certain truths come to light and even more lies are exposed, I fear that I, Ollie Andrews, am the worst kind of monster of all. And, maybe, they should be hunting me.


This book is recommended for mature readers due to sexual content, violence, and language.

Susan Griscom writes paranormal and contemporary romance–steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She’s a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance.

She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor.

Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.

Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far.
When she’s not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I bought this book and listened to the audio book.

This is a sweet insta love story about town bad boy Reese who comes home after a log absence to recoup after a bad fight.  He is stunned stupid to see the one women he cant seems to shake out of his system still looking as beautiful as he remembered.

Lilly has always had a crush on town bad boy Reese but knew he was not interested in her in any way.  When he comes back to town and starts kissing her ear, she is confused because how can the only person she ever loved be here in town and kissing her ear!!!

The love story is insta love in the fact it moves very quickly, and they are professing their love for one another.  They are trying to hide the relationship from her father who is the town preacher and does not approve.  Reese also worries about Lilly’s reputation in the small town if things get out about what they are doing in the evening *wink*

The couple have a few things to work out like is Reese leaving when he rehabs his injury, what happens when his MMA promoter comes back and what happens when a secret is soon spilled about Lilly!!

If you enjoy insta love stories you will enjoy this book.

I will saw this narration isn’t my favorite.  I almost wonder if I might have enjoyed the book more with me reading vs listening to his voice.

When she finds a strange tattoo etched into her back after a night of intense, passionate sex, she discovers that he is Ezekiel Hallow, one of seven werewolf brothers. They team up to find Black, who has killed her husband and has the Book of Elvesayd, an artifact Ezekiel desperately needs. Each step on their journey becomes more deadly as they get closer to Black. How far will they go to find the Book? Can Dakota stop Black from taking the life of another man she loves?

Review by Twinsie Dee

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

What a GREAT addition to the continued ARC of this story!!!  OMG  Zeke and Dakota were awesome!!

Zeke is a baby brother in the mix of 7 brothers, so I did not feel we knew a lot about him other then he was a goofball.  So, seeing him take the reigns to protect his ever-growing family made him stand out.  His brothers are all mated and now daddies, so he jumps to try and find THE BOOK they need to keep the pack safe.

Dakota is one tough a$$ chick!!  Her character was amazing.  She is one sister-in-law or daughter-in-law the Hallows will be leaning on when the final war happens.  She has seen all the bad things the vampires are capable of and she has risen from the trauma to be a vampire hunter.

When she stalks into a bar and sees Zeke, they are both stunned and attracted instantly.  When they have a fun night, they wake up, and Zeke has some explaining to do.  We all know what they have buuuut Dakota is not a big believer is fate let alone a fated mate!!

The story goes on and we see Zeke being Dakota’s “side kick” to track down the Vampires with the book they need.  Soon they discover the vampires also have another little hidden gem for world domination so they, of course, decide to ruin that plan as well.

The story is fast paced.  We learn about a society of humans who work together to stop vampires and other bad creatures.  We learn about Dakotas past and hurt which prevents her from moving forward.  We also see Zeke becoming the selfless hero all the Hallows become to protect their mate.

The story was a great addition to the series.  I look forward to each installment and cannot wait to see what happens in the next book.  Baby brother Josh will soooo fall for his mate and we will see what happens with the overall arc of the story.
