Kindle Review….. Valen (Guardians of Hades Romance Series Book 2) by Felicity Heaton👩🏻‍💻

Valen (Guardians of Hades Romance Series Book 2) by Felicity Heaton 

Description….

Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Lightning, Valen was banished from his home by his father, Hades, two centuries ago and given a new duty and purpose—to keep our world and his from colliding in a calamity foreseen by the Moirai.

Together with his six brothers, he fights to defend the gates to the Underworld from daemons bent on breaching them and gaining entrance to that forbidden land, striving to protect his home from their dark influence. Cursed by Zeus to never know love again, Valen has brought up barriers around his heart to protect it, but with each new barrier he creates, the dark hold his power has over him grows, becoming all he needs.

Until the night he finally crosses paths with the assassin who has been watching him from the shadows, a bewitching mortal possessing the name of an angel and the skills of a devil—a woman who awakens his passionate heart and stirs dangerous desires.

Eva has built a fearsome reputation for herself in Italy’s underworld, but her latest job in her beloved city of Rome has left her feeling that she has stepped into a dangerous world and this mission might end in her death—either at the hands of her mysteriously seductive client or by the blade of the wickedly alluring warrior who is her target.

As the threat from the daemons escalates and more than just the Rome gate becomes their target, will Valen be strong enough to face the fears in his heart and the ghosts of his past to claim everything he desires or will they lure him deeper under their spell and into the darkness?

My Review…… 

Book two sees us with Valen in Rome where he lives and guards his gate. His hands are lethal weapons, he can command lightning like his uncle Zeus. 

“The tiny bolts of lightning that leaped between his fingertips chased upwards and burrowed into his skin beneath his long black cotton coat, and his eyelids slid to half-mast as warmth suffused his flesh and sank deep into his bones.

Sweet gods, it felt good.

Always did. Always would.

He let his power flow through him, coaxing it to chase along his skin just beneath the surface, cajoling it into doing his bidding in order to have that momentary high, that sweet, sweet buzz that he had come to crave ever since he had been banished to this fucking hellhole known as Earth, kicked from his home in the Underworld by his father.” Excerpt From

Valen

But he hates it here on Earth, he wants to go home and live in peace in his own little part of the underworld. But until then he begrudgingly protects those who live there. 

Eva (or Angel as she’s also known as) is an assassin for hire, good at her job, but her latest target has her puzzled, why would the job change from information only to capture? It doesn’t make any sense! 

He’s being hunted, and for a while now, the cat and mouse he is playing with his little assassin is his only joy, well that and killing daemons that try to use the gate. And the electricity that runs through his body. 

Luring her into a trap was easy enough, sending her back to her boss was a piece of cake, but what he didn’t bank on was the feelings she drew from him. He knew she would be trouble (his mother had spoken to him a cryptic message) but he didn’t realise how much! 

Eva isn’t happy at finding out she’s been played by her boss. So she plans to talk to her mark, that takes her down a path that totally confuses her!! 

The pair then plan to work together, trying to keep it professional on both sides proves hard, in fact downright difficult, the attraction between the two is off the scale….. 

Must admit, meeting Valen in the first book “Ares”, you just want to smack Valen, his attitude towards his brothers is antagonistic, his hatred towards his father is palpable, but the loathing for his Uncle Zeus borders on the verge of War!! But you also get a sense of loneliness from him. You the camaraderie between his brothers, why is he being left out? Why does his mother spend more time with him than his brothers? 

The sparks between Valen and Eva is electric, almost from the beginning you see Valen fight his attraction to Eva, his feelings of being unworthy of love. 

The history behind the scar he wears on his face, changes how you view him. You can’t help but want to offer him comfort.

And Eva, she’s awesome, a fighter, a heroine with a brain and a kicka$$ attitude. She’s definitely a match for Valen. 

She freaks out initially when she sees all the things going on in the book,(but who wouldn’t?) but it not long till Eva is back and fighting alongside Valen. 

“It hadn’t been difficult to find the villa based on the information Eva had given to him, or at least it shouldn’t have been. Feeling the wards on his apartment trigger and returning to find her gone, and no trace of the scent of daemon in the area, had sent him off the deep end a little, and screwed with his senses.

The need to take her back, to protect her and keep her safe, and to destroy whoever stood in his path, was strong, commanding him against his will to shake the earth and the sky, unleashing his fury on this world.

It had taken him twenty minutes of going in circles, draining his strength by frantically stepping from one spot to the next across the valley, before he had finally calmed enough that he could focus and use his senses again.

The moment they had cleared, he had caught the coppery stench of daemons in the air, and had known exactly where to go.” Excerpt From Valen

The plot thickens, a battle in Ares book ends with the daemon that was trying to kill Megan dying himself. But not before telling the brothers that trouble is coming, and a silhouette of a man with purple eyes watching them ….. 

I like the series immensely, and I can’t wait for the next book.

Kindle Review…. Ares (Guardians of Hades Romance Series Book 1) by Felicity Heaton👩🏻‍💻

Ares (Guardians of Hades Romance Series Book 1) by Felicity Heaton.

Description…….

Prince of the Underworld and Lord of Fire, Ares was banished from his home by his father, Hades, two centuries ago and given a new duty and purpose—to keep our world and his from colliding in a calamity foreseen by the Moirai.

Together with his six brothers, he fights to defend the gates to the Underworld from daemons bent on breaching them and gaining entrance to that forbidden land, striving to protect his home from their dark influence. 

Caged by the manifestation of his power, held apart from those he loves by his own fire and starved of physical contact, Ares lives a cold existence driven by duty and the desire to return to his world.

Until his world collides with a daemon who steals his power and a mortal female who shatters the ice around his heart and awakens the true fire within him—a soul-stirring passion both dangerous and seductive.

Megan has wandered far from her home, driven from everyone she loves by the devastating realisation that she is different to them all. Unsure who to trust in the world, she keeps to herself, until a fateful stormy night brings a temptingly handsome warrior crashing into her life and into her heart—a warrior who seems to hold powers more frightening and marvellous than her own.

When the New York gate comes under threat, and Ares is put to the test, will he choose his duty and regain the power he needs in order to save his world or will he choose the desires of his heart and sacrifice his fire so he can be with the woman becoming his whole world?

My Review…… 

A new series from one of my favourite authors. 

Megan has always wondered why she was different from other people! She could heal with her hands! She knew no one else was like her, so she hid her talent, wandering from place to place trying to find answers….. 

Ares is the son of Hades, banished here centuries ago, to guard a gate to Hell, he never wanted the job, thank goodness he’s not alone, his brothers are in different parts of the world guarding their own gates. A call will have them coming to one another’s aid at a moments notice (they can teleport or “step” as they like to call it) 

“Ares hoofed it through Central Park, pursuing the daemon who had made a break for it. The bastard accelerated, cutting through the patchy darkness ahead of him, and Ares pushed harder, ignoring the burn in his legs, his focus locked on his target. The lamps illuminating the path at intervals flickered over him as he sprinted, intent on running down the daemon before he escaped. Those same lights flashed over the daemon’s back, dull as they hit the dark hood of his sweatshirt but bright on the back of his leather jacket.

The slim male veered left, crashed through the undergrowth and broke out onto one of the park’s dark open fields.

Ares swore under his breath in the mortal tongue and followed him. He wasn’t in the mood to play tag, not tonight. While he enjoyed toying with his prey, he had already done that once tonight with two daemons.” Excerpt From Ares

Megan and Ares meet by accident, she’s in the wrong place at the wrong time. A witness to a battle that mortals have no idea is going on. 

After being wounded by the Daemon, Ares is found by two of his brothers, they assume Megan is responsible, but after questioning her, they realise she wasn’t to blame. But she does have answers to their questions, so they take her back to Ares’ home. 

Ares wakes to find his power gone…. 

He’s always been able to call fire on command, but after the battle with the daemon, Ares doesn’t have it!! 

He’s unsure as to how or why, and he needs it back, he might have wished he could touch things or people without burning them, but now the power is gone, he misses it….. 

So Ares along with Megan and his brothers begin their search for the daemon that took it. But there is more going on than just stealing powers…. 

And the more time Ares spends with Megan, the more he questions wanting his power back! 

But if he doesn’t get his powers back, his gate might fall, and if that happens, the world as we know it will cease to exist. In its place will be a Hell on earth!! 

The sons of Hades won’t let that happen. But if Ares gets his powers back, he won’t be able to touch his brothers or Megan! 

Loved this book. Really well written, it flows off the page into your mind so easily, that you form pictures in your mind, and create the scenes as they happen. The characters are great, a careful balance of warrior and wounded soul (after almost three hundred years of not touching someone, it had to have had a lasting effect) and the anger they have with their father is very palpable (why can’t they go home? Why can’t they visit?) 

And I love the interaction that they have with Persephone (their mother) she loves her sons so very much, and tries to guide them as much as she can. 

The difficulties between Ares and Megan are well thought out…. 

We also get a little background lesson….. 

Gods exist (Zeus, Apollo, Hades and Persephone etc)

Hellspawn are half mortal half god. They may have more than one power.

Carriers are offspring of the hellspawn (they have less power, usually just one gift) 

Demi Gods are also known as hellspawn, not a name commonly used. 

It’s a great way to start a series. And I can’t wait to read more on the brothers. 

“Ares pulled Megan closer to him and looked down at her, seeing her in this world, safe in his embrace.

No matter what happened, he would always protect her.

He held her to him, needing to feel her in his arms.

He would never give this up.

Cars rushed by below them and the cold night air carried the scent of rain again. Warm lights dotted the perfect skyscrapers and snaked through the dark swath of the park.

He would fight to protect his gate and those of his brothers, not only to protect the Underworld, not anymore. He would fight to protect Megan’s world because she had become his world now, and his place was beside her in this one.

He would fight for her.

He stared out at the city and it flickered to the future, and another building collapsed and burned bright in the red darkness.” Excerpt From Ares

And find out what’s going on with the daemon’s. 

And did you catch they had a sister? Where is she?

My Review….. 
Last book in this series, and it’s a good one. 
We all know the story of Lucifer being thrown out of heaven. 
We all know that Lucifer is a bad guy through and through, no redeeming features. 
And I did wonder why the author would give such a bad guy a happy ending? But maybe she’s going to tease him, then take away his female to punish him?! It’s an idea I totally got on board with, he had a hand in most of these books, his aim was to break free from his prison. 
But he knows if he gets out, then it’s game over for the world (and without giving too much away) and that’s something he doesn’t really want to do anymore! 
Lucifer is the guy we all love to hate, Prince of darkness, king of the demons, but as we get to know Lucifer a little better, there is more to him than just his handsome face and sinful nature….. 
But Lucifer hides a secret, if he escapes then so do the angels that he holds down here. And if they escape. Then it’s definitely the end of the world!! So he’s doing heaven a favour (well that’s the way he looks at it) 
Nina is always wary, always hiding. And when she wakes up, her first thought is that her ex has her! But seeing a gorgeous man standing in front of her instead, has her thinking he maybe rescued her?! But she needs to be on her guard, because of this kind man helped her, then she could be endangering him too! 
There is the battle between good and evil, right and wrong. And as most of the previous books have stated, it’s not always the good guys that are good. People can redeem themselves. 
Living in Hell for a millennia will corrupt anyone, having no light in your life will harden and darken any soul…… 
Lucifer doesn’t understand his feelings for this female, she has to be a trap. His enemies are always trying to find a way to break him, to anger him to the point of breaking out of this hellish prison. But Lucifer won’t be tricked. And he’s going to find out who this human woman is and why she’s here. 
And as Nina and Lucifer become entangled with one another, there is another force waiting to strike him down! Can he rely on others to help him? Or will he be forever alone?! 
I have to admit I love these stories, you don’t need to read the previous books, but if you do, then I’d advise to read them in order. 
There is a new series being spoken about and I can’t wait to see where we go from here. 
Written with enough action and violence to keep me entertained, and plenty of steam and tender moments to make you root for the bad guy😉
Sometimes it’s not black and white, there are many shades in between. 
Highly recommended series.

My Review…… 

Nevar was once a good angel, a loyal soldier to heaven, but all that has changed, now part demon he answers to another master. He’s a ruined soul, he can’t seem to find redemption, all he wants is to find solace at the bottom of a bottle!

Lysia has no memory of who or what she is, only that she’s drawn to the ex-angel she met in a bar. 

Together they have to battle their feelings for one another and their enemies. Can Nevar help Lysia to regain her memory? And can she help him find peace and balance is a cruel world? 

This one was about redemption. Nevar was looking to blame someone for his situation, when In fact he was to blame too. 

Quick update…… Nevar was captured and tortured by Asmodeus, he had planned to use Nevar to destroy heaven, but after a few incidents and misunderstandings in the previous book (Her Wicked Angel) Asmodeus is now trying to help Nevar, but he can’t forgive the demon for turning him into a crazed maniac! 

Using alcohol and demon blood to numb the pain, Nevar wants nothing to do with heaven, hell and everything in between! 

I liked this one. And I loved the surprises that kept coming in this book. 

We meet up with previous characters. You can read this book without reading the previous ones, but if you read in order, you get more enjoyment. 

As always a very well thought out book, well rounded characters. Fight scenes that wound put a Hollywood movie to shame. We have emotions that will tug on your heartstrings, and moments where you just want to shout at the characters. 

You don’t need to read these in order. The book will happily stand on its own. But for full enjoyment, i advise you to read them in order. You won’t regret it. 

I fully recommend this book.

My Review……

It was a black day in Hell. Asmodeus stood high above the bottomless pit, his amber gaze locked on the tall obsidian spires in the distance. Screams and sobs rose up from below him on the hot air, the grunts of their tormentors a harsher note in a symphony he so often enjoyed. The demons were busy today. He had been busy too until he had felt the call of his master. As much as he had wanted to keep the Devil waiting while he had finished his latest masterpiece, he had dropped everything and left his castle in the wastelands via a portal that had brought him to the plateau above the bottomless pit. And there he stood, debating how long he could put off crossing the cragged, grim landscape to the Devil’s fortress before his master lost his temper and called him again. Asmodeus enjoyed pushing the male right to the limit of his patience.

Asmodeus is pure evil, made from the disgraced angel Apollyon by the devil! But when he is charged with collecting a mortal female from Paris, Asmodeus sees a chance to explore the world above. Encountering the female turns his world on its head, feelings he’s never had before rush to the surface. 

Made in the image of Apollyon, the devil had created him to be his right hand man, to lead his army. 

But Asmodeus is so much more, he’s my favourite character. Shown no love, shown no comfort, so when Liora shows up and shows him him all those things, it throws him. Can he be good? Or will he revert back to being the evil twin? 

It was dazzling this time, as if she had found someone she could swap notes about Apollyon’s faults with and was over the moon. “So, when I heard about you, I really wanted to meet you… because I figured essentially you should be the opposite of Apollyon.” Asmodeus cocked an eyebrow. “Evil?” She had wanted to meet him? She laughed, the sound sending a pleasant shiver through his body. “No. Fun.”

Liora is a disgraced witch, her power borders on the bad side. But she has a good heart. Meeting the doppleganger Asmodeus, she sees more to him than what she’s been warned about. 

Liora thinks as her magic is unstable she’s a bad witch. 

And even she meets Asmodeus, she sees a kindred spirit. But she’s been warned that he’s pure evil. She doesn’t see that in him, she sees a wounded soul (my favourite kind of hero) someone to care and protect. I liked Liora, her wicked sense of humour was a big draw to her, she can defend herself (so she’s not like a lot of MC’s she can hold her own) she defends Asmodeus when other characters berate him, but she also tells him when something she feels he’s done something wrong. 

Asmodeus was leaving. He was going to follow orders and return to Hell with Nevar and his hellhounds, and she would never see him again. She had gone through one feeling after the other since he had announced his intent in Hell. Bitterness and disappointment. Anger and resentment. Misery and heartache. Now, she was feeling so many conflicting emotions that she wasn’t sure what she was doing. She couldn’t focus, couldn’t think, and couldn’t function, but she knew there was something she definitely couldn’t do. She couldn’t let Asmodeus leave.

Together they battle the devil/heaven? And their own feelings for one another. Will he be able to change? But will his witch want him to? And you have to wonder what the devil wants her for? I can’t give away too much, as I hate spoilers myself. But when you find out, it’s not what your expecting. 

You fall in love with a book, then the next one comes along, then BAM!! Struck in the face with another awesome read. How are you suppose to be loyal to your last read, when the next one lures you away…..

 I love the ongoing  battle in this series. It’s fine if you want to just read this one, but I do recommend you start at the beginning, you get where this story is coming from. 

There is also another series where Apollyon features, and you could read that series first. Her Angel: Bound Warriors paranormal romance series. But it’s not essential. 

So can Asmodeus and Liora be together? Where will they live? He is bound to Hell and the devil. But if she stays with him, can she live in a world full of darkness and hate?

My Review…… 
Erin doesn’t like it here in hell!! She’s human and doesn’t know why she’s here, she’s definitely not dead!! 
Meeting the devil is never on her list of things to do, and it’s scared her, when he tells her of his plans, Erin knows she needs to escape! But how? 
It was the Devil who took her. Erin was sure of it. It was the Devil who had come in the dead of night, entering the bedroom of her loft apartment like black mist to take her as she slept. And he wasn’t red all over or had hooves and horns like in movies or fables. He was immense, with skin as black as coal, eyes that shone red like car brake lights and the wings of a dragon curling from his back. He had brought her here to a fiery, broken and inhospitable land where perpetual tormented screams chased every shred of calm and peace from her soul and the air was so thick with the stomach-turning stench of sulphur that she couldn’t breathe. 
It was Hell.
Veiron is on a rescue mission, he promised  to rescue his allies sister, but meeting her, Veiron doesn’t bank on feelings he’s kept hidden from the world from surfacing!  He’s intrigued with this female, what does the devil want with her? And why does he feel this way? 
“Please, Veiron?” Amelia whispered again and he couldn’t stand seeing the tears in her eyes. She had already been through hell because of this vicious game and had almost died by the hand of her lover, Marcus. She deserved to live, and so did he. They all deserved some peace. Veiron closed his eyes and huffed. “Fine. I’ll take a trip to Hell,” he said and he could almost hear Amelia smile, could sense a glimmer of her relief and hear her heartbeat pick up. “Thank you,” she said and he looked across the fire at her and shook his head. There was no reason to thank him. He hadn’t promised that he would find her sister and bring her back in one piece. He had only said that he would make the journey to Hell. Whether it would be a one-way trip or not was yet to be seen. It felt like a suicide mission to him.

Together the battle both their desires for one another, and to stay one step ahead of the Devil. He’s got plans for Erin, and no one knows why he wants the her! 

I liked this one, Vieron was in the last book (Her Guardian) 

Erin is a riot, she’s very independent, she’s opinionated and can hold her own. 

Veiron frowned. “Less of the servant talk, Missy… but I imagine we will be able to speak telepathically now that we’re bonded.” Erin liked the sound of that, but not as much as she liked the thought of winding Veiron up about their new master and servant status. “Besides, you are my servant. That means you have to obey me now because I’m your master.” She grinned at him, meeting his scowl and not backing down. “You’re a little too comfortable ordering me around already… if you’re not careful, I’ll show you who’s boss.” Erin’s grin turned sassy. “Oh yeah?” “Uh yeah.” Veiron snaked his hands around her hips and drew her up against the hard planes of his body, causing her stomach to quiver. His gaze flickered down to her mouth and she tipped her head back, luring him in for a kiss.

The writing comes alive between the pages of this book, you can almost smell the sulphur rising up from the pits, the heat scorches your face, the sweat drips into your eyes. Dark and dreary, screams of a thousand tortured souls assault your hearing. 

Heaven is the opposite, fresh clean air, lightly scented breezes gently tickle your senses. 

The fight scenes are well thought out and executed with precision. 

The descriptions of the characters can be easily imagined, tall and muscled (sorry drifted there) and totally loyal. Most of the characters are in this series, so you become vested, you need to know what happens next. 

Veiron is one of my favourites, he’s a hard ass, a totally badass dude, but is he? If he’s willing to risk his life to find and rescue a woman he’s never met (yes there is a reason he helps to find Erin) he can’t be all bad? The chemistry between the two main characters is off the chart, there is just enough naughty time, the story is the focus and not the sex! 

There is a bigger picture going on, and I’m sure it will emerge in the oncoming books, heaven and Lucifer in the eternal battle. He wants out, and Heaven needs to keep him locked up down there, if not, then the world ends. So I do suggest you read in sequence. But if your just read odd ones, I don’t think it will matter too much. 

I find it hard just reading a few chapters, once opened, this beauty was inhaled, life came to a standstill, and returning to the real world is always a wrench, I’d live in Felicity’s mind forever.

Marcus has watched Amelia from heaven for many years, and a month ago his superiors told him he needed to watch her from the mortal realm. Why? And when they refuse to answers he becomes suspicious, but he’s ever the loyal soldier of heaven, and does his duty. Moving in next door seems like the best solution. 

But he’s Unprepared for the foreign feelings that surround him where Amelia is concerned, he wants to finish this mission and then request a transfer to the warrior class of angels. 

Amelia has just gotten out of a bad relationship, the last thing she needs is to fall for another man. But when her gorgeous neighbour comes to her rescue, Amelia rethinks her opinion, surely she can’t get it wrong again?!

Spending time together, Amelia gets the feeling Marcus isn’t really comfortable here. And he always seems to be on the lookout. But for what? 

Together they face both heaven and hell in a battle for Amelia, but why? Is there more to her than meets the eye? They are then in for a fight her their lives!!! 

I have to admit I loved this book, not my favourite of the series, but it sets the scene for the coming books. 

There is a series before this one (Her Angel: Bound Warriors) and I’ve read the first one. 

You get background on the other characters in this series, but I don’t think it detracts In anyway, but now I’ve read this book, I need to go and find the other angels in the previous series! 

Fast paced, tear jerking, time slips away from you, and I found myself lost in this book. 

Great descriptions, amazing fight scenes, and a few scorching hot scenes thrown in for good measure. 

People aren’t who they are suppose to be, demons popping up, and both heaven and hell are fighting over Amelia! What is so special about her? 

You also get the feeling that there are quiet a few secrets. The higher echelons of angels are really sneaky! 

Next book please …….

Kindle Review…. Ride Dirty: A Raven Riders Novella book 4 by Laura Kaye 👩🏻‍💻

Ride Dirty: A Raven Riders Novella book 4 by Laura Kaye

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laura Kaye comes a new story in her Raven Riders series… 

Description…… 

Caine McKannon is all about rules. As the Raven Riders Sergeant-at-Arms, he prizes loyalty to his brothers and protection of his club. As a man, he takes pleasure wherever he can get it but allows no one close—because distance is the only way to ensure people can’t hurt you. And he’s had enough pain for a lifetime.

But then he rescues a beautiful woman from an attack.

Kids and school are kindergarten teacher Emma Kerry’s whole life, so she’s stunned to realize she has an enemy—and even more surprised to find a protector in the intimidating man who saved her. Tall, dark, and tattooed, Caine is unlike any man Emma’s ever known, and she’s as uncertain of him as she is attracted. As the danger escalates, Caine is in her house more and more – until one night of passion lands him in her bed.

But breaking the rules comes at a price, forcing Caine to fight dirty to earn a chance at love.

My Review….. 

Caine is scared both inside and out, born to a crack addict mother and a father who liked the bottle! Put in care homes and then homeless, he’s not had it easy, trust needs to be earned and not easily given. 

In the MC subculture the Sergeant-at-Arms is responsible for ensuring that the Bylaws and standing rules of a club are not violated, and that orders of the chapter officers are executed in an expeditious manner. … The Sergeant at Arms is the head of security of the club and also the personal bodyguard to the President.

Emma loves Christmas, it’s a season she loved with her grandmother, she can’t wait to wrap presents and eat lots over the Christmas period. But first she has to deal with a mugger! Luckily she’s saved, but by a biker! She’s expecting to be mugged from this guy as well, but instead makes her feel safe. 

Oh this was such a good read (wish it had been longer) Caine not thinking he’s good enough for anyone, especially not a kindergarten teacher. 

You’re a kindergarten teacher,” he said, his eyes tracking her every movement. Hands full, she moved toward the table and then laid out the place settings. “And?” she said with a little laugh. “What does that mean?” His gaze narrowed. “Kindergarten teachers are like…paragons of innocence and sweetness.” Emma waited for the punch line, humor bubbling up inside her. And then she started chuckling. “Oh, man, would my friend Catalin get a kick out of that.” She shook her head, laughter still bubbling up inside her. “When she gets worked up over something, she swears like a sailor. That’s just a reputation because our job entails being cheerful and patient, and having a willingness to not take yourself too seriously, and playing with glitter and fuzzy pom-poms alongside teaching letters and numbers and social skills.“excerpt from Ride Dirty 

Emma is such a good person, she’s sees the best in everyone. Loves her job, in fact loves life, the interaction with her dog was so cute. 

And Caine’s reaction to the dog was hilarious. I don’t think he knew what to do with it. 

Caine has been in all the books, but not too prevalent, he’s mostly been in the background, so it was nice to drag him into the spotlight. 

He doesn’t expect kindness from anyone, he expects just to be used. He’s had that all his life, and the I’ve person he tried to look after does in a fire at a young age, so from them on, it’s no connections, his biker buddies are family, but still not a proper connection. 

He needed Emma to show him not everyone is out to hurt him or use him. 

Hoping there are a few more books to this series.

My Review….. 

Maverick is VP (Vice President) of Raven Riders MC (Motorcycle Club) he loves his biker brothers and would do anything for them. 

He owns the custom bike shop that they all use and he gets a lot of outside customers. It’s the one thing he’s really good at. 

They protect those who can’t protect themselves.

He knows all about that, coming from an abusive family background, he didn’t realise his dad beat his mum, she hid it until the bruising became too bad! So now he’s super protective of all those he loves. He won’t let that ever happen again!

But one love got away, Alexa Harmon, they hung out together as teenagers, they loved one another as young adults, but that love when tested failed, and they weren’t together anymore. 

But that’s not stopped him from loving her, he regrets those five long years they were apart, and now given a second chance, he won’t screw it up…..

Alexa balances a lot on a daily basis, a sick mother, a demanding job, and a fiancée who is driving her crazy! 

Trying to finish her schooling so she’s a qualified designer is proving difficult, she needs time to study and finish off, but with the  wedding looming, Alexa feels like she’s running on empty. 

She’s also noticing a change in Grant (her fiancée) more demanding, more controlling and just MORE!! 

Is she just imagining things, or is he as bad as people say he is? 

I liked this one, I’ve liked Maverick from the beginning, his mum is a biker “old lady” and he’s always felt guilty that he couldn’t protect her from his abusive dad. And in one of the earlier books, she got beaten up!! So his guilt is sky high! 

I liked the second chance theme in this book. Misunderstandings, fear and just being too young kept this couple apart. But when Alexa needs him, he’s all over it. 

Alexa was a character, she might have been beaten down, but she wasn’t ready to give up. Losing her father and her brother was hard. Having to fight her mum on her hoarding habits was proving challenging. But it’s what families do. 

Love the interaction between the bikers, the solidarity, they’ll drop everything at a moments notice. 

Then we have Alexa and Grant her fiancée, reading how little things weren’t adding up. It screamed control freak and a bully. 

Again a beautifully written book. The story engages you and keeps you there. 

Hoping more books will come along.

My Review…. 

Dean “Dare” Kenyon runs the Ravens MC, he doesn’t want the club running the old ways, so with the help of his grandfather, cousin and best friend, he turned the club around. They help those who can’t help themselves.

Dare lost his older brother and mother to guns (his father shot them when he found out they were running way.) 

Haven loves to bake, it’s her way of contributing, saying thank you and a way to calm herself down. 

Very cowed, scared of her own shadow, she’s lived a very sheltered life (Haven would claim a prison life) on the run when she found out she was going to “marry” one of her father’s friends! 

Hiding out in a biker club wasn’t where Haven thought she’d be, but better than the alternative. 

She wants to move on, she wants a life, and when her friend Cora tells her to write a list of things she wants and wants to do, Haven thinks it’s a good idea. 

The list starts off short and grows longer within a day, also on that list is Dare, and all the things she’d like to experience! 

I’ve not read any books by this author. But I have heard of her. And gets this as a free read definitely helped😉

MC (Motorcycle Club) books usually aren’t my thing, but I did like the premise of this book, and it’s been on my kindle for a while (2018!) so I thought I’d give it a go…. 

The Ravens aren’t your typical MC (but then most of the MC books claim that!) they help those in need. And Haven was definitely in need! Coming from an abusive and controlling family life, Dare knows all about that kind of life. She’s hiding in the clubhouse after they were rescued from another biker club, (her best friend Cora was with her) they need somewhere to regroup and then find a new start. 

The attraction between Dare and Haven is practically instant. But Dare shouldn’t really get involved with her, she’s too young for a start, too innocent and someone they are helping (and you don’t take advantage) but there is something about her that makes him question his own existence, he didn’t think he needed anyone in his life, but Haven looks good in his home and in his bed, they know it’s only a matter of weeks before she has to move away, but suddenly Dare wants more, can he really keep Haven? 

And her father is still looking for her! He’s also offered a reward for information on her whereabouts and her return! He’s not going to give her up, will be she able to evade him for much longer? 

I have a feeling it’s a spin off from another series (Hard Ink Series) but I don’t think you’ll need to read those (although it might show us how Haven and Cora got captured, and then met Dare) 

But I’ll have to look into that series 😉

Anyway …… 

Definitely a book I’d recommend and a series I’ll have to read😉and possibly the Hard Ink Series too (will my reading list ever shorten? Probably not😂

Kindle Review… Hard As Steel: A Hard Ink/Raven Riders Crossover book 0.5 by Laura Kaye 👩🏻‍💻

Hard As Steel: A Hard Ink/Raven Riders Crossover book 0.5 by Laura Kaye 

Description..

After identifying her employer’s dangerous enemies, Jessica Jakes takes refuge at the compound of the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. Fellow Hard Ink tattooist and Raven leader Ike Young promises to keep Jess safe for as long as it takes, which would be perfect if his close, personal, round-the-clock protection didn’t make it so hard to hide just how much she wants him–and always has. Ike Young loved and lost a woman in trouble once before. The last thing he needs is alone time with the sexiest and feistiest woman he’s ever known, one he’s purposely kept at a distance for years. Now, Ike’s not sure he can keep his hands or his heart to himself–or that he even wants to anymore. And that means he has to do whatever it takes to hold on to Jess forever.

My Review..

Jess/Jessica Jakes has had a crush on Ike forever, they banter, they flirt, but they’ve never crossed the line, not that Jess wouldn’t be on him in a heartbeat! But he doesn’t take the hint, what’s a girl to do? 

Ike Young knows how it feels to love someone you love, he lost his pregnant girlfriend in a fight gone wrong. His job in the club is debt collector, bet runner for The Ravens and tattooist for Hard Ink, he’d moved to Baltimore for the tattooing job, but he was a Raven Rider through and through. 

Jess is hiding from a gang that have been a constant pain to both the Hard Ink gang and the MC Raven Riders. She identified them after an attempt at blowing up the ink parlour that both Jess and Ike work at. 

This book combines both Hard Ink (a series I’ve not read) with Raven Riders (a series I’m reading at the moment) 

A short story/novella. You don’t have to read in order, but there is definitely history between these two (and I always hate half a story😉

Piercer for Hard Ink Jess was already established, she saw Ike and fell for him. So this is set years down the line, neither have them given in to the temptation. Ike tries to look at Jess as a work colleague, yeah that’s not working. 

And when Jess’s life is put in danger, Ike needs to realise that she’s more than just a friend. 

Ike brought Jess to the Raven’s compound, it’s safer there, but trouble seems to follow her….. 

I loved Jess, such a tale charge chick, except when it comes to that bad ass tattoo artist Ike. 

They both have had hard pasts, they both know what it’s like to have loved and to have lost someone close, but Jess just can’t get past that last wall of his! 

A short but intense story, passionate but fun. A good intro to the Raven Riders series.

Kindle Review…. Proceed with Caution (Ford Brothers Book 1) by Sandra Alex 👩🏻‍💻

Proceed with Caution (Ford Brothers Book 1) by Sandra Alex 

Description

He’s a heartbroken heartthrob. She’s a fugitive fiance. Sparks fly when Julia flees…right into Colton.

Colton all but wears a sign that says ‘No Women Allowed’ after his failed marriage to Pam. 

Pam promised him the world but never delivered. It’s no wonder when he meets the beautiful and intelligent Julia, he doesn’t let his heart pave the way. Colton’s love of his horse ranch, his students, his brothers and his money keep him happy. He doesn’t need or want anything else. When Julia walks into his life, Colton decides it’s best to proceed with caution, and the feeling is mutual. 

John is sexy, successful and perfect fiancé material…when he’s not controlling, delusional and downright creepy. But how do you dump a guy your loyal and loving father fixes you up with, without breaking two hearts? When Julia goes MIA to her estranged sister’s place out of state, John goes ballistic. Especially when her sister works with dreamy-eyed Colton, and Julia finds herself spending a lot of time with them. But it’s difficult to keep someone safe when you don’t know they’re in danger.  

Gun-shy, self-protective, and hiding from the truth, Julia is in no position to open her heart to anyone. Particularly when she has to look over her shoulder for her stalker fiancé every step of the way. Fearful and scarred, Julia doesn’t know what to do when her hormones wake up just at the sight of Colton. It seems no matter what door she opens, both the wolf and the sheep are there. When Julia’s past finally catches up to her, John demands her to do the one thing she can’t do…or die. 

Her loyalty and all-consuming love were the reasons why I chose her…until she made me a promise she didn’t keep.

She was the one who waited for me while I was overseas. She was the one who loved me the way nobody else did. She’s also the one who broke my heart by not keeping her promise.

I thought I was done with women for good…until Julia came along.

Afghanistan changes a man in a way nothing else can, and the women flock to me like magnets because of it…but I don’t want any of them. The way they look at me, I’d like to tear their eyes out.  

Julia doesn’t look at me like I’m a piece of meat. She also doesn’t see dollar signs when she finds out I’m a Ford boy.

Problem is, Julia doesn’t want anyone any more than I do. She’s running from something, but she won’t tell me what or whom….and then I find out the hard way.

….

Sure, running away is the cowardly thing to do. But if you were in my shoes, you might have done the same.  

Colton is the type of guy to steer clear of, at least that’s what my sister Liz says. He’s got this smouldering look that makes me lock eyes with him. But then we both look away. And it’s all good, because another man is the last thing I need…especially another man with major issues. 

When Colton finds out what I’m running from, he teaches me a thing or two about men, and not in a way I would expect.  

He’s full of surprises…especially that one kiss that leaves me breathless. It’s the last thing either of us wants…and the first thing we both need. He promised it would never happen again, but evidently his body and his heart are at a crossroads. I’m suffering from the same affliction.

My Review…..
Love triangle? Or a man and woman finding love whilst a mad man obsessed with her wants her back?! 
Colton is definitely avoiding women, they are nothing but trouble. After the last woman in his life took his heart and pounded it into the dirt! Students, horses and and his brothers are all he needs in his life.
Until he meets her….. 
Julia needs somewhere to hide, she’s hiding from a possessive fiancée, at first it was ok, he was there for her when she need him, but things are beginning to jiggle her. 
So she runs to her sister. Liz works in a bar. 
That’s where she meets Colton, he’s cute, sure, but no now way is she looking for any entanglement. She’s just escaped one man, she doesn’t need another one tell her what to do! 
Being almost the baby of the family (Wade is the youngest) Colton might have served in the military, he might have the muscles and the tattoos, but I got the impression it’s all for show, he seems like a good guy who hasn’t found the right woman yet. 
Julia I thought at first a little bit of a pushover. Letting your friends talk you into things that you don’t feel comfortable with. Even Liz takes advantage! 
First book in a five book series. Doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, so don’t think you’ll need to read the rest.
It was an easy read, a few little points I was unhappy about, but nothing that really spoils the book. 
The couple sort of flirt around one another, shy away from each other, but they are drawn towards each other. Nether want to make that first step, they are both hurting from past loves…..
Love her sister she was there even she needed her, and looks out for her. 
Only thing I did have issue with is her friend told her to leave her ring at home and wear something sexy! (you would think she wants her friend to cheat on her fiancé?) 
Colton’s brothers did have me chuckling, and hooked, so I need to find out if they get their stories. 
And what happens when John the fiancé turns up?

Dragon Destiny: Guardian Dragons of Prospect Falls book 4 by Serena Meadows 

Description….. 

Gabriel is the town’s trusted doctor…
Chloe hawks potions, herbs, and promises…
He’ll put her out of business, unless she puts him under her spell…?

By night, Gabriel prowls the streets of Prospect Falls alongside his fellow dragon-shifter guardians. When day breaks, he swaps his steel weapons for a white coat and a stethoscope. Beloved by the townspeople, Dr. Gabriel’s waiting room is always full—which is why he’s so surprised to one day find it empty.

It doesn’t take long to discover where his patients have gone. One of Gabriel’s naïve, elderly neighbors is playing host to an out-of-towner with a suitcase full of potions. But there’s more to Chloe than first meets the eye. Past her sensual curves and fierce green eyes is a vulnerability that dampens his anger. Is she worthy of his empathy, or bewitching him with her magic?

The more time he spends with the young woman, the more his defenses slip away. But evil is lurking in the sweet town of Prospect Falls, and Gabriel needs to be on his guard more than ever.

My review….. 

Chloe is a witch, but not that she’d let you know, something in her past is keeping her from her full potential.  She’s been drawn to Prospect Falls for a long time, she’s just been avoiding it, but now she’s here, it feels like home. But she needs a place to stay before she decides what to do about her future…..
Gabriel is the town doctor. He loves his job, but at the moment it’s a chore, he’s being spread thin with the demons, the council, his guardian friends all finding love, and a rogue council member! His father and a few retired doctors are helping out, but it’s not the same, he needs to sort this out….. 
Book four sees the conclusion of this series. We get a lot more background to the history of Prospect Falls. We also have witches involved, the councillor who wants Prospect Falls for himself, Demons and an evil magic that’s making its way to the town!
The book can be read without reading the others, but it is better read in order, a lot of the storyline evolves over the four books. 
Chloe’s background is a complex one, and it’s one that does blends in well with the conclusion of this series. Past events make her wary of using her magic, so she helps people with teas and herbs. (That’s how Chloe and Gabriel first meet and clash) 
Gabriel did make me chuckle, one minute he’s all, no, no, not for me, and then he’s practically racing Chloe up the aisle (well trying, she’s not having any of it) 
More action and storyline in this one (sex is kept to a minimum) the story seemed to flow better, but a lot was happening, so I felt another book might have been in order, but that’s my opinion. 
It’s nice to see all the previous MC’s from the previous books. 
There are a few minor characters that we see throughout the series, and I didn’t think any of them were superfluous to the storyline.

Dragon Hero: Guardian Dragons of Prospect Falls. Book 3 by Serena Meadows

Description……

Vincent says women-shifters can’t hunt…
Charlie’s ready to prove him wrong…
But will they kill the demons, or each other?

As mayor of Prospect Falls, Vincent must protect his people at all costs. But demon attacks are on the rise, and sometimes the weight of his responsibility feels heavy enough to crush him.

When the council agrees to send help, the burden upon Vincent’s shoulders is lifted. He expects to receive a fellow guardian like himself: strong, fierce, and ready to kill. Instead, a curvy, blue-eyed bombshell steps through his door. Vincent could laugh, if he wasn’t stunned into silence. Are they meant to kill the demons, or seduce them?

All Charlie has ever dreamed of is being the first female guardian, and no pig-headed shifter is going to stand in her way, even if he is drop dead gorgeous. Besides, the demons grow bolder every day. Vincent might not want Charlie’s help -or acknowledge the chemistry sparking between them—but if he doesn’t get over his stubborn streak soon, it might be too late.

Publication date 25/4/2020

My Review….. 

Vincent is the towns newspaper editor, mayor and guardian. Work is just getting away from him, he didn’t realise how much his mother and father did for the town. 
Charlie only wants a chance to prove that she can do the job she has always wanted. Who says a woman can’t be a guardian? Well Mayor Vincent Chambers says so!! She needs to bring honour back to her family name (she’s the last in her line, so she needs to show her father, family and the council a female is just as good as a male to be a guardian) 
That has to be the funniest of the series so far. Poor Vincent, juggling three jobs. He assumes the council will send him a demon hunter/guardian. 
He also puts a advert in the paper for an assistant to help him with the newspaper and the medieval festival. 
What he gets is no one applying for the roll of assistant, and a newly trained woman as a guardian!! 
Had to think Vincent was a little chauvinistic! A woman was not going to be a guardian, but she could file papers and organise the vendors!! 
Glad Charlie got the chance to prove him wrong. 
The chemistry between them is strong, it helps that Charlie is a dragon shifter also, but when Charlie doesn’t want the bond between them (she feels like she’s letting her father down) Vincent has to prove to her that it’s them against the world. 
The story is coming along nicely. You don’t have to read them in order, but it does help as there is a running story in the background. 
The usual characters are here, including Miranda the nosey manager of the motel. Horace the strange little man that owns the bookstore. And the main characters from the previous books. 
The council are misbehaving also. Well not all the council, just a certain mean and nasty councillor (he’s after Adam’s farm, old family feud) he wants the guardians to fail for some reason. 
Demons activity is increasing and so is the meddling of the council (well one councillor in particular) 
So can Vincent come to terms with his own prejudice? Can he see that Charlie could be an asset to Prospect Falls? And can Charlie get the role she has worked so hard for?

Dragon Mate’s Secret: Guardian Dragons of Prospect Falls Book 2 by Serena Meadows 

Description….

When the chemistry is too strong to ignore,

But the secrets are too big to hide…

Burning lust becomes bitter betrayal.

Michael knows that finding love is a pipedream. Following in the footsteps of the dragon-shifter ancestors who came before him, his job is to mate and continue his lineage—not waste time on distractions like romance.

Amy has one love in her life: teaching her students about King Arthur and the folklore of his court. But when her best friend Molly stops returning her calls, Amy leaves her reclusive life in New York and heads to Prospect Falls. 

Instead of finding her friend, however, she discovers Michael, a man rippling with muscle, charisma, and deeply hidden secrets.

Amy will do anything to find Molly, and Michael seems to be the only person with answers. 

The trouble is, Amy is starting to suspect that Michael is not the man he claims to be, and when the truth is finally revealed, no amount of chemistry will forgive his dark manipulation.

My Review….

Michael is sheriff in Prospect Falls, he’s also friend to Adam (Dragon Savior) a guardian that protects Prospect Falls. It’s been a family tradition for many years. 

Amy is looking for best friend Molly (MC in Dragon Savior) they always keep in touch, and now she’s worried. 

Coming to Prospect seemed like the best idea. But Amy has had nothing but suspicious looks and warnings not to go into the mountains, something is going on, and Amy is going to find her friend and the secrets in this town…. 

Book two in this four book series sees us catching up with Michael, he’s happy Adam has found his mate, but it’s left him and the other guardians with extra work to do. 

He also needs to know what the college demonologist can do to help them, (yes the college and the whole town know about dragons) he’s also got to placate his mother!(She doesn’t like to be left alone for too long, she’s lonely since his father died) 

Now a stranger is asking about a missing friend! Is she talking about Molly? 

Coming face to face with Amy has Michael in a bit of a dilemma, he could help her look for her friend, or he could spend time with her and hopefully distract her. It’s not exactly a chore, she is kinda cute, but the longer she’s in town, the sooner she’ll work it all out! So he needs her going back to New York sooner rather than later…..

Amy knows the sheriff is hiding something, he keeps distracting her! At first she didn’t realise, then she begins to put two and two together, what does he know about her friend?

I liked both Amy and Michael, they made a really good team. And it was good that we got to see everyone from the first book. 

You don’t need to read them in order, but it does help. Not as much action as the first book, we spent most of the time chasing Molly. 

But I liked the idea that it’s all linked to King Arthur, mystical dragons and magic. 

So will Michael come clean to Amy? Will he tell her about her friend? And if he does will it ruin his chances with the woman who possibly could be his mate?

Kindle Review… Dragon Savior: Guardian Dragons of Prospect Falls book 1 by Serena Meadows 👩🏻‍💻

Dragon Savior: Guardian Dragons of Prospect Falls book 1 by Serena Meadows 

Description…..

A dragon-shifter trapped by fate.

Must steal a heart to save his powers…

But can love ever truly bloom, when caught within a lie?

As leader of the dragon-shifters that defend Prospect Falls, Adam battles demons and monsters on a regular basis, but he never guessed his greatest test of all would be finding love. 

Fated to lose his powers if he remains unwed by the age of thirty-five, Adam has little time to meet and court a woman who’ll embrace the man he is, and the dragon within.

When Molly crashes her vehicle and wakes up in the arms of a tall, dark-eyed rescuer, the world is a throbbing mess of confusion. She doesn’t know who she is, where she’s from, or how she got there. Worst of all, her handsome savior is a complete stranger, despite the fact they’re apparently in love, and happily married.

Molly struggles to understand how she could have forgotten the intense, charismatic man that tenderly nurses her back to health. 

Sparks fly between them, but Molly’s memories refuse to return…and something isn’t adding up. 

Her mysterious husband is keeping secrets and when the truth is finally revealed, Molly’s world will come crashing apart a second time.

My Review….

Adam is leader of the dragon clan in Prospect Falls. It’s his job to keep the demons away from humans. He’s a guardian. 

Centuries ago his clan was ordered to America to keep it safe, but something followed his family, a portal from another dimension opened up on the mountain, so his family can never leave, someone had to stay to keep the humans safe. 

There is also the matter of him losing his ability to shift (so losing his dragon and his strength) when he turns thirty-five, unless he’s mated! 

But it looks like fate might be in his favour when Molly lands in Adams lap! 

Molly is on her way to Prospect Falls, when she’s in a car accident. (Why? We aren’t sure, but I think she was unhappy with her old life) 

Things are a little hazy, in fact when she wakes up she can’t remember anything, including her name and her past! 

Adam says they are married, but why is she not convinced? She can’t call him a liar, it’s just a feeling. 

Molly and Adam feel the pull to each other, but Adam is trying to get Molly to fall for him before she remembers who she is. Because once she remembers she could leave him and take his heart! 

First book in a four book series. This can be read on its own. 

Adam has been looking for a mate for a while, but living in Prospect Falls females have been in short supply. Although I do think that’s an excuse, he’s probably just left it too late! 

Molly seems like a god send, she could be the answer to his problems. 

Lying to her at first seems to be the logical course of action, but getting to know her, Adam wants Molly to fall for him for real. 

I Like the fact Molly hadn’t fallen completely for Adam, she does find him attractive, and if they are married then it should be right to find your husband sexy, but I like she’s not completely gullible. She’s keeping a level head. 

And when Molly finds out that he’s lied to her about them, what’s in store for Adam? 

Oh and i dread at what Molly will think of Adam turning into a dragon, and that there are demons in Prospect Falls.

Kindle Review…. Call of the Wolves (Spirit Wolves Series) Book 2 by Vonna Harper 📱

Call of the Wolves (Spirit Wolves Series) Book 2 by Vonna Harper

Description…… 
Dark memories wait for Carlan Nashel and Brett Schneider in the unforgiving wilderness where Carlan’s beloved brother Skye lost his life in a tragic accident. She wants nothing to do with Brett whose presence painfully reminds her of what she lost, but she once loved this man. He used to be her everything, her body’s awakening. 

As if preordained, they find each other near where the accident took place. As a storm isolates them from the world, they have no choice but to face the past and what they lost. To acknowledge what went wrong and why, the shared sexual heat that still rages. What they don’t know but soon will is that they aren’t alone in this hard reckoning. This unwanted journey. 
Yes, they are the only humans here, but there is something else: a ghost and spirit wolves. 

Maybe they’ll survive. Maybe they won’t. 

Spirit Wolves Series:
Book 1 Cry of the Wolves 
Book 2 Call of the Wolves
Publication date 26/7/2020
My Review……
Carlan and Brett had known each other before. They were high school sweethearts, but life gets in the way, you grow up, you grow apart. 
And that’s what happened, but neither really forgot about each other…. 
Brett and his brother Jake, (he was the MC in Cry of the Wolves) run the logging company together. But since the accident that almost took his leg and his friends life, Brett just has had the joy from his job. He just wants to get on, back to work and back to his old life….. 
Carlan is looking after her parents, it’s a full time job now that her idiotic, selfish jerk of a brother died! No, that’s not fair, she loved him dearly, misses him immensely, but she can’t see past her anger at his abandonment of her and their parents…… 
After finding one another Carlan and Brett agree to go back to his trailer and talk! Being around Wolves and ghosts is enough to get most people talking to each other. Being trapped in a small trailer, isn’t the ideal solution, but it gets them talking, they hash out old hurts, past grievances and come to an uneasy truce. 
But the Wolves and ghosts have plans for Brett and Carlan, and neither will be leaving the trailer until the spirits are happy…… 
A short and intense book. Not really enough information or material, just a long intense passionate moment.
I liked it, I would have loved maybe a few more chapters. There was so much potential to expand and give us more explanations. Meeting the Wolves should have brought goosebumps up, it didn’t! The tender and intimate moments just didn’t come across that way.

Kindle Review…. The Dragon’s Willing Sacrifice: a Dragon Shifter Romance (The Last Dragons Book 3) By Ines Johnson 📱

The Dragon’s Willing Sacrifice: a Dragon Shifter Romance (The Last Dragons Book 3) By Ines Johnson 

Description…..

Sacrificed to a dragon as a teen, she was coddled for years. But when her dragon shifter fails to notice she’s all grown up and willing, she may just have to claim him herself.

Since she was dropped on his doorstep, Cardi has had the hots for Kimber. Despite prancing around him in her off-the-shoulder shirts that showcase her bare midriff and her assortment of tight skorts that showcase her shapely thighs, he doesn’t take much notice of her. Kimber may have marked her as his, but he has yet to claim her by bopping her brains out. Cardi’s done waiting. Now she’s sure it’s time to resort to drastic measures.

Kimber has his hands full with the upcoming Accords which aims to bring shifters to a peaceful agreement to get the Valkyrie to lift the ban of sacrifices coming into the Veil. The trouble is, his own sacrifice continues to act like a child and demand his attention at every turn. When grounding Cardi doesn’t work, she drops a bombshell by dumping Kimber. It seems like a perfect solution as the peace and quiet settles in… but then Kimber comes to understand that being dumped means she’s going to date other shifters.

Their break up puts the Accords in jeopardy when Kimber has to abide by the new rules; rules that say a sacrifice makes her own choice of mate. With Cardi now a free agent, Kimber isn’t so sure she’ll choose him in the end. If he can’t win her back, and he resorts to ripping out the throats of the shifters sniffing around her, the fragile peace he’s cobbled together will turn to chaos.

Dragon Shifter Romance: The Last Dragons by Ines Johnson

Book 2 The Dragon’s Ambivalent Sacrifice 

Book 3 The Dragon’s Willing Sacrifice

https://amzn.to/3gbi9pB *

Publication date 26/11/2019

My Review…..

Kimber is the eldest dragon in their Clan. His twin Corun (MC in Book 1) is mated. But he has no plans ever to mate, why would he? It would mean the death of his sacrifice or mate, and as that’s what happened to his mother and all mothers before his did, he’s not willing to risk it, or her….. 

Cardinal “Cardi” has been around dragons FOREVER! She’s grown up with them, beaten them at PlayStation games, and generally been a nuisance! But it’s all been done out of love, she loves them like brothers, well all except one….. 

We’ve read their trials and tribulations in the last two books. (You don’t need to read them to understand, but it gives you a better picture of their relationship) 

I liked how the book starts with the arrival of Cardi to their valley, it does explain a few things. She was pretty feisty and not at all afraid of the dragons. 

I did chuckle at this book. 

I also wanted to put Cardi in a timeout! And I could totally agree with Kimber, she was extremely childish, but if you treat someone like a child, then they are going to behave like one, yes? 

Luckily enough we spend time building the story and the ongoing story of building up relationships with the other shifters. 

Dragons are trying to negotiate with the Valkyrie, if enough metals and jewels are mined, would the Valkyrie bring women through the Veil? And once there the females would have a choice of males to choose from. 

The only thing I wasn’t too keen on was Cardi ALWAYS going on about Madonna and the 80’s!! It came across as very childish and monotonous (I know the Veil slows time down, and Cardi was taken in the 80’s as a teen) but to live her life as a movie or song title, got a little wearing after a while. 

Briefly….. a dragon ran off with a Valkyrie and lived happily ever after, but the Valkyrie aren’t suppose to want mates, so the whole valley where the shifters live was put behind a veil, a forcefield of sorts. That cut off the virgin sacrifices for the shifters (no females are born) so no more mates! 

Ok back to the story…..  Kimber sees Cardi as a petulant child, Cardinal sees Kimber as her one true love.  Kimber wants Cardi to act a little more responsible and adult like, but when she does, it doesn’t really go to plan!! He begins to see her as a woman, a potential mate, and that just won’t do! If she dies giving birth to his young, then that would destroy him. 

But seeing her with other shifters, especially a young lion shifter put Kimber in a quandary! Does he let her go and hope the lion makes her happy (nope not happy with that outcome!) or dies he suck it up and finally take what’s been on the table for a very long time. 

Hoping the rest of the brothers get a book each, and maybe a few of the shifters in the valley that we’ve met.

Kindle Review… The Dragon’s Reluctant Sacrifice: a Dragon Shifter Romance (The Last Dragons Book 1) by Ines Johnson 👩🏻‍💻

The Dragon’s Reluctant Sacrifice: a Dragon Shifter Romance (The Last Dragons Book 1) by Ines Johnson 

Description

Diagnosed with an incurable disease, she thought her life was over. When she is sacrificed to a dragon, she learns it has only just begun…

The day Chrysanthemum Jones goes to exact revenge on the man responsible for her sister’s death is the day she knows will be her last. Instead, she finds herself stolen away to another dimension and sacrificed to a real live dragon. Rather than a cave full of gold, this dragon’s lair is a throwback to the 1980’s complete with pixelated video games, unwound VHS tapes, and animal print spandex. And the mythical creature in question is totally more sex on a stick than Smaug. Schweet!

As one of the last dragon shifters beyond the Veil, Corun is desperate to control the beast inside of him. The only thing guaranteed to keep the dragon under control is the surrender of a human female. But sacrificial offerings have been in short supply since his realm was cut off from Earth -something or other about women’s liberation? So when a sacrifice turns up on his doorstep, Corun should be elated. But as totally tubular as Chryssie’s curves are, her health is fragile and he fears she wouldn’t survive the claiming that would soothe his beast.

Death has never bothered Chryssie. With an incurable, hereditary disease, she’s been prepared to die her whole life. Now she has a chance to lose her V card and birth dragon babies before she goes? Talk about bad ass exits. Count her in! She just needs to get her sexy dragon shifter on board and in bed.

As Corun becomes more attached to his sassy little human, his beast roars that Chryssie is his and pushes to claim her. If he doesn’t claim her and soothe the beast inside of him, he will become stuck in dragon form for the rest of his life. However, if he does claim her, the birth of his offspring could be the last day of her life.

Liking this new world of grumpy dragons, it’s also full of Fae, Valkyrie, bears and other shifters.

Can’t wait to read what’s next.

Dragon Shifter Romance (The Last Dragons) 

Book 1 The Dragon’s Reluctant Sacrifice

Book 2 The Dragon’s Ambivalent Sacrifice 

Book 3 The Dragon’s Willing Sacrifice 

Publication date 17/9/2017
My Review…… 
Chrysanthemum/Chryssie is a dead girl walking, she has been since the day she was born, a hereditary disease was stealing her young life away. 
But first she needs to make the doctor who took her sisters life go first. He killed her and sold body parts on the black market. She will have her revenge or die trying….
Corun is tired of struggling with his dragon. Having sex with fairies and fae worked for a while, but no longer, and he won’t rely on a female to restrain his dragon, science will help his brothers and himself to contain their dragons. 
I get the impression Corun is a scientist, trying to concoct a mixture to keep his beast in check. But more potions than an antidote. 
This story is different, dragons are the dominant species and they have a human inside. If the beast gets its way, then the human stays trapped inside forever, the solution is to Mate with a human female, that contains the dragon, the males can still transform into a dragon, but it’s not always trying to get out. 
There is a mating process  but the birth of baby dragons kills the females. 
The Veil keeps the dragons hidden but trapped, and they seemed to be stuck in the 80’s. 
Long ago the dragons had their pick of sacrifices, the humans sent them as offerings. But Valkyrie stopped them, so now no females….
This story had me chuckling, stuck in the 80’s with nothing to do but play Mario and solve Rubik’s cubes. 
Meeting Chryssie brings it all to a head for Corun, he won’t mate her, he feels something for her, but won’t have dragon babies with her, even if the female is willing! 
Chryssie made me chuckle, her life has been given back to her, so shouldn’t it be her choice if she wants to die in childbirth? Not according to her sexy dragon man it’s not! 
Well it looks like Chryssie is going to have to seduce her dragon. Well the man anyway, the dragon is all onboard for a mate.

Bearly Tamed (BBW Shifter Security Romance) (Big Paw Security Book 1) by Becca Fanning

Description… 

Linnie Foster never wanted to be an informant: she just wanted to be a nanny. Read a few bedtime stories, kiss a few boo-boos and maybe give a bubble bath or two. At first she thought things were great. The family paid her suspiciously well: in hindsight that should have been a warning. But here she was, on the run and under the protection of a strange man with beautiful golden eyes. Just when she thinks things can’t possibly get any worse…

Cain DuMont has seen some shit in his life. His military background prepared him for this new realm of private security contractor. Being a Bear Shifter, you could say he was born to do it. Everything was going easy until his team got called in to handle a woman who was being hunted down by the mafia. Little did they know that she was going to be hunted in a literal sense…

My Review….. 
Linnie is a full time nanny to a mob boss! Ok she didn’t realise he was a mob boss, but after hearing things she shouldn’t have, she’s got no choice but to tell the police! Then before you know it, she’s being whisked away as a star witness to a trial….
Stuck in a cruddy motel room with police officers bored out of their minds, Linnie is ready to scream. 
Cain shifter security they take on jobs too tough for the police. 
Now I know shifters are quiet and stoic, I got the impression Cain was more than that, so how do we go from protector to lover? 
Another short story from this author. 
Potential for a longer book was there. Characters were ready, storyline was solid. I could have read about these two for hours. The only quibble i have is the sex seemed a little too soon, but then so did the ending! And I’d love to know if there ever was a court appearance?!
Sorry it’s a short review for a really short book!

Kindle Review… Road Bears (BBW Bear Shifter MC Romance) (Grit And Growl Book 1) by Becca Fanning 👩🏻‍💻

Road Bears (BBW Bear Shifter MC Romance) (Grit And Growl Book 1) by Becca Fanning

DESCRIPTION…..

Carrie Dalton needed this job. She needed this job bad. But even she couldn’t kid herself: she stuck out like a sore thumb in this biker bar, full of men who had more warrants than kind words. Right as she thought she was getting the hang of things, she went tail over teakettle with a full tray of beers. Thankfully she was caught by the best looking six and a half foot mistake she’d ever seen. Nothing wrong with a little fun, right? Not like it could last. And those golden eyes…

Brian Cross didn’t come to the bar tonight for distractions. He just wanted to handle some Iron Fur Clan business and maybe drink away a little sorrow. Then the new waitress almost killed herself on her first night on the job. Brian always had a soft spot for the underdog, and for her to come into this den of bears showed some backbone. It didn’t hurt that his eyes were constantly drawn to her thick hips and ample curves.

Before they can get to really know each other, a rival motorcycle club threatens their relationship and their very lives.

Published 2017

https://amzn.to/3hUmAXc *

My review ….

Brian is the leader of a shifter biker clan (wasn’t ever made clear!) didn’t really get his take on the story, he was a tattooed badass bear, but it didn’t really come across that much. (I’ve been reading MC books lately, and I compared it to them, and they were sadly lacking!)

Carrie has a little more to her, after losing the job she loved, she’s now a waitress! First night the bar is packed and she’s run off her feet! Not watching what she’s doing she spills beer all over this massive biker!! But instead of shouting at her, he helps clean her wound from the broken glass,and tells the other guys he’s with to clear up the mess.

Brian and his gang are a constant in the bar now, and look out for her. It’s not until they are on their own are they accosted by a gang of bigotry bikers!! (They hate the shifters and want them all dead) The leader tries to take Carrie away from them, but she tells them no!

A short story about a bear and a waitress! Throw in a biker gang that want to kill the shifters in town, and you have the makings of a really good book.

Solid characters, good storyline. A quick couple of fight scenes, the obligatory sex scenes.

The backstory had more content than the actual story told us (the bears never discussed business, and why was Brian drinking away his sorrow?) although in the books defence the beers were spilt before discussions and sorrows were vented)

I did like it, I would have liked it more if it had been longer!

Kindle Review…. The Impassioned Choice: book 5 (Etherya’s Earth) by Rebecca Hefner👩🏻‍💻

The Impassioned Choice: book 5 (Etherya’s Earth) by Rebecca Hefner 

Description……

A new villain emerges, threatening the peace the immortals crave…

Heden, the youngest Vampyre royal, has always strived to live up to his sovereign duty.  As the most gifted programmer in the immortal world, he applies his skills to protect the kingdom and the family he adores. But his siblings have all settled down with families of their own, and Heden often feels like a perpetual third wheel.

Wracked with guilt after her grandfather’s violent death, Sofia Morelli made a sinister pact with an unknown ally. Utilizing her tech ingenuity to plan the ultimate attack against the immortal royals, she begins to realize they might not be the nefarious enemies she believed them to be.

As Heden discovers the new adversaries and learns someone on the Secret Society shares his hacking prowess, he realizes the human, Sofia, might actually hold the key to defeating them. Determined to turn the feisty woman to his side, he employs his jovial nature and seduction skills to win her over. But when their tentative connection turns into something more, Heden understands a coding war isn’t the only thing he could lose to the spunky human. For, he might just lose his heart to someone who can never share his immortal future…

**The Etherya’s Earth series is best read in order so the reader can enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a good twist and wants the reader to uncover them organically. However, readers of romance rest assured that each book has its own featured hero/heroine and HEA.

Book 5: The Impassioned Choice

https://amzn.to/2EuOuuh *

Publication date 20/4/2020

My Review…. 

Heden is youngest brother to Sathan, Latimus and Arderin, the joker and peacemaker in the family. A computer genius, there isn’t much he can’t find or do with them. 

Watching from the sidelines as his family gets bigger with each year. His brothers have found mates, even his tempestuous sister has bagged herself a man, well demon! Heden is wondering if anyone will come forward and claim this geek?! 

After swearing to get revenge for the death of her beloved grandfather, Sofia now has the upper hand. After placing surveillance in all the villages in the Vampyre/Slayera domain, Sofia can watch and plan the downfall of the Deamon-Slayera murderess who killed her grandfather. 

Her prowess with technology rivals and surpasses (well in her opinion) Heden’s. Her supporter wants them all dead! Even the children! A full scale war is on the cards……

I’ve read the whole series, and I do recommend you read them in order. Heden has been in all of them, his sense of humour has been in evidence, his love for his family is obvious, playing peacemaker for centuries. But you get the sense he’s a much deeper character, behind that smile and banter is a young man that wants to be loved. 

Sofia is a new character. But her knowledge of the Etherya world is not. With the help of The Secret Society she knows who is to blame for the death of her grandfather, the only objection is the fact the society want EVERYONE dead! Even the children, and Sofia is finding that hard to work with. 

And when Sofia is faced with the truth about who the leader of the society is, and the fact the families he has accused aren’t as bad as he claims, it puts Sofia in a quandary, does she have the right to end so many lives? And what’s his agenda (I know, but I’m not saying)

Heden has grown over the last few books, sure he’s still the playboy, the joker, but I also get this sense he’s ready for a family (even if it’s only subconsciously at the moment) his sense of humour had me chuckling at the oddest of moments, the banter he had with the women in his family (sisters-in-laws) tell them he’d run away with them, and they’d live happily ever after. The jokes he had with the man his sister bonded too, you’d think it would be difficult, but Heden draws out the smiles in most people. 

So who is the secret society? What do they want? What’s the agenda? 

Well I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you 😉 

I try not to give spoilers, and boy this one was hard to keep quiet, it’s a big one. I did not see it coming, and I did have a moment where I had to reread the passage just to be sure.

It’s been a marvellous journey, filled with danger, intrigue, passion, and sadness. The characters have all been amazing. Catching up with everyone in the Etherya world was great, seeing how the couples have grown, how each character has evolved. 

The action scenes were still as good as the first book. 

The tender moments were all the more poignant as this series is almost at an end. 

Like how can Sofia and Heden have a happy ending? She’s human, she will age and die, and she won’t be able to live in Etherya! 

Each book became a favourite. But now with this last book, I can say this wasn’t my favourite, but it came a very very close second. 

But I encourage you to pick up the first book, you won’t regret it.

Kindle Review….. The Reluctant Savior (Etherya’s Earth Book 4) by Rebecca Hefner 👩🏻‍💻

The Reluctant Savior (Etherya’s Earth Book 4) by Rebecca Hefner 

Description

Evie, daughter of virtuous Princess Rina and malicious Deamon King Crimeous, is a woman torn in half. The first centuries of her life taught her fervent lessons about pain and suffering. For ages, she suppressed her mother’s noble blood, crafting a reality where she was drifting along, needing no one. Until an ancient prophecy calls to her, possibly creating a purpose for her squalid existence.

Kenden has commanded the Slayer army for a thousand years. Strong, cunning and loyal, he longs for the day when Crimeous has been defeated and he can settle down to build a family. Focused on conquering the Dark Lord, he is stunned when Evie makes a brazen demand that must be fulfilled before she chooses to fight with them.

Although incensed by Evie’s ultimatum, Kenden has never desired a woman more than the flame-haired vixen. Though she stirs his ire, he also has a deep well of compassion for the beauty who suffered so much trauma centuries ago. 

Together they train, and by night their connection grows, building toward the moment when they will battle her father. But, in the end, Evie has a choice and struggles to espouse righteousness over malevolence. For, when one’s worst fears are exposed, the evil is so much easier to embrace…

Book 5: The Impassioned Choice

Publication date 23/5/2019 

https://amzn.to/2PpyT1F *

My Review…… 

Evie has never played well with others, half daemon and half Slayera (Sister to DarkRip and half sister to Miranda) she’s known nothing but pain and misery at the hands of her father. She’s learnt to look after herself, she takes what she wants and nothing stands in her way…..

Kenden has been a solider first as long as he can remember. And being the leader of the Slayera army has always been his goal. 

His army is now a force to be reckoned with, especially now its part Slayer part vampire. Maybe now they can finally take down King of the Daemons Crimeous! 

Book four had me on the edge of my seat! 

We’ve known Kenden from book one, and I’ve always wondered if he’d get a story. I couldn’t see him with a character who wouldn’t give him a run for his money, and Evie does that, and really well. I didn’t want to see him with anyone who’s a pushover (again Evie is nothing like that) but I didn’t expect Evie, although there has been a fair amount of flirting between them.

Evie hasn’t been that forthcoming in the series, it was hard to get a grasp of her character, killing a former lover because he betrayed her, I could see (sort of) but she seemed like a character I was going to hate.

But as you get to know her you see how much she’s had to deal with. 

For over eight hundred years she’s had Daemon blood run through her veins, being used as a punch bag and worse by her father has to leave emotional scars, and the damage has been done, she cares for no one but herself. 

I did have to chuckle when Evie made her demands known (she’s not prepared to fight her father, she wants nothing to do with Etherya) it wasn’t what I expected and I loved how her mind worked. 

The chemistry between Evie and Kenden is off the charts, he wants more than she is willing to give. Can Kenden get through those high walls of hers? 

And when faced with her father, can Evie do what the rest of the family can’t, finally kill their enemy/father, and bring Justice to the woman that binds them together? 

It’s great to catch up with previous characters and couples. A few twits that will keep you reading this till the early hours. 

Oh side note, for all you readers who love Nolan and Sadie, you definitely need to read this one😉

Kindle Review…. A Vampire’s Vow (Vampires on Holiday Book 3) by ML Guida 👩🏻‍💻

A Vampire’s Vow (Vampires on Holiday Book 3) by ML Guida 

Description….

Michael Aims: I’m a vampire and I can shift into a wolf. My problem is I can’t control my wolf.

And I’m being hunted.

I sent my sister away so she’d be safe. I thought my high school sweetheart was deployed and in Afghanistan far from the vampire killers.

But I was wrong. She’s back.

And now they’re after her.

If I don’t learn how to control my wolf, I won’t be able to protect her. She’s my life.

Holly Wade: I love Michael, but I’m afraid he’ll reject me.

I was a soldier and have second degree burns.

But he’s changed, too. He’s a vampire who can shift into a werewolf.

Vampire hunters want to kill him and now they’re after me.

Civilian life isn’t what I thought it would be–vampires, werewolves, killers.

One thing I know for sure. He doesn’t need to save me. I’m a soldier, trained to fight.

If killers are after us, bring it on. I’m ready.

My Review….. 

This is the third and last book in the series. 
We met Michael in book two (A Vampire’s Gift) he’s friends with Jayden (MC in previous book) and was injured, so he was turned by his best friend into a vampire. 
Now, each vampire has a special gift, only Micheal got more than he bargained for, he now changes into a wolf when he gets stressed! 
Holly is Michael’s girlfriend, she was a solider serving her country until a horrible accident sends her home! 
From there she falls into a strange and almost twilight zone! Her boyfriend’s a vampire, his friends manager (Jayden was in a band) is stalking them, with the intent on killing them, and she’s got no idea what to make of it all!! 
I must admit I liked this one the best out of the three books in this series. 
Michael not being able to control his wolf had me chuckling. Also I wanted to hit him! The scars aren’t Holly, you should have been more compassionate! 
Holly being smart enough to use the wolf to her advantage, (being a solider she uses what’s around her)
Reading how Holly interacts with Michael and then the rest of the vampires, it’s a lot to take in, I mean, who would believe there are 
There did seem like a lot more plot and content to this one. 
Catching up with old friends and hopefully dispatching old enemies once and for all. 
We also meet Saul a werewolf looking for his sister (could this be a spin off series?)

Book 3 A Vampires Vow 
My Review….. 
Eleanor lay dying, her family slaughtered. And the reason, her father had protected a man! But not just any man, a vampire!
Janus (from book 1) found Eleanor and asked if she wanted revenge for her family and herself, he felt as if it were his fault about her family (he was the vampire that was being protected)
Jayden is in a band, Jayden is lost, after his father died, his twin brother spiralled out of control and got into drugs, after too many fights his brother dies in an accident! It’s just now Jayden and his mother, he needs to be strong for her, but it’s just not working…. 
Eleanor turns Jayden into a vampire after he almost dies in an accident. But he’s not convinced, he needs to get back to his mother, she must be worried sick. But Eleanor can’t let him go home until he’s controlled his thirst for blood! 
It’s then a battle of wills between the pair, he wants to continue with his human life, but Eleanor tries to warm him if the vampire hunters out there, he can’t live his normal life any longer. 
As the pair become closer, Eleanor tries to let go of her past, but it’s not easy. She can’t forget what the men did to her! The degrading things they did to her! She likes Jayden, but can she let go and move on? 
And what of the vampire hunters? They aren’t just going to give up hunting her…. 
This was totally different from the first book. 
We have a female vampire fighting to survive, we watch as she tries to guide Jayden in his new life. 
We watch the couple grow closer, we hope the hunters don’t find them, but when your best friend comes from a long line of vampire hunters, it’s going to be tricky. And when Eleanor finds out his best friend is from the line that killed her family and raped her, will she just walk away?

I won’t let him hurt her again. But if I move too fast, she’ll disappear again. Will I ever win her heart or am I destined to live alone for eternity?

Deirdre: A vampire’s claims he knew me over two hundred years ago, and I was his wife. He wants to pick up where we left off.

I can’t deal with his fantasies. I have enough troubles with escaping from my boss who is my fiancé.

Unfortunately, my only chance to escape from him is to trust Janus who stirs up feelings that I’ve never felt for any other man. They scare me. What if he’s right? What if in a former life I was in love with him? Could I possibly be feeling desire for a vampire?

My Review…… 
Janus is a lonely vampire, centuries ago Janus lost his beloved Delores to vampire hunters. He swore to find her (vampires believe their soulmates would be reborn) he knows he let her down, and if he ever flubs her again, he’d keep her safe. 
Deirdre loves her fiancé, she really does, but she’s scared of him, his temper is beginning to take control of him, to the outside world Brandon is amazing, but if anyone angers him, it’s Deidre’s fault and she pays for it! 
Written in the POV of the characters. We read Janus lose his beloved to the vampire hunters…. 
Years later by chance he discovers her in Hawaii, but she’s with someone else! 
I Just wanted to know… if Brandon had been a nice guy, would Janus have left Deirdre/Delores go? 
But he’s a bully and when Janus finds out that Brandon hits her, then all bets are off. He’s going to win her back. 
A short Christmas holiday story. 
I have to admit the backstory held a lot of potential, but the book was a bit of a let down (was it because it was a short story? Probably) so much to pack in and not enough time to get it all in! 
Janus was trying to be patient, but Deidre is scared, and then she’s suspicious, and then she’s back to being scared. I found Delores to be a spoilt child. 
But I did like the premise of finding a love across time, the idea that you can find that love again and again.

Kindle Review…. M.C. Solaris Calypso’s Heart: An Orion’s Order Novel by M.C. Solaris 📱

M.C. Solaris Calypso’s Heart: An Orion’s Order Novel by M.C. Solaris 

Description….

Sexy shifters. Hot vampires. Intriguing immortals. Strong heroine. Sizzling romance. Page-turning plot full of emotion and excitement. Modern and fresh take on fated mates….

Caly

Do you dream of ridiculously hot men? Okay, maybe you do. (And yes, I’m well aware I should lay off the romance books before bed.) But do you actually ever meet those men you dream about in real life? I didn’t think so. That’s probably a good thing though because I have… And these men from my dreams have done nothing but pull the rug of reality out from under me… which was how I fell and ended up in a world that I thought only existed in romance books.

My name is Caly (AKA Callie) and I’m just an ordinary single woman living the LA dream… paycheck to paycheck. Except whose dream is it? I’m not really sure… but it’s not my dream. Especially because I have really weird dreams… like really weird. Then again, everyone has weird dreams, right?

Blake

I am an alpha wolf shifter and leader of Orion’s Order, a pack of… well, not wolves. We’re an unconventional pack of highly skilled specian hunters that do one thing: hunt the evil in our world. And we were hired by SILE (Species Investigative Law Enforcement) to hunt a bloodthirsty criminal who is infamously untraceable. That was until an irresistible female brought an unexpected twist to our hunt and set things in motion… a motion that has left my pack and our world forever changed.

Welcome to The Order and a secret world of magic and mystery, where a pack of unlikely friends find love and fight against an ancient evil force.

My Review…. 

With a backstory like that we are in for a ride.
First book in a new series, and an author that I haven’t read before. 
By day Caly Is a paralegal. At night she dreams of being swept off her feet.  Her day job is not as thrilling as she’d like, but it pays the bills, only she’s just lost a big client to a rival in the firm! Can anything else go wrong today? 
Blake works for SILE or Species Intelligence and Law Enforcement. His team combines many species of paranormals, they hunt down anyone breaking the law. Or trying to cross The Barrier (it keeps the human world separate from the paranormal one)
Their main task is to find and bring in The Mastermind and The Ghost. Wanted for murders (i get there is more to this story than we are being told at the moment)
Caly dreams of Blake, (well she doesn’t know it’s Blake at first) but doesn’t communicate with him at first. There is just a lot of staring into one another’s eyes. 
I did have to chuckle at the description of Caly, it gave me a sense of airhead and a dreamer, but there is so much more to her than that. She chats to both herself and her cat, she loves coffee and music (my kinda girl already) I have a feeling she feels like she doesn’t really fit into the L.A lifestyle, she’s more of a laidback kind of woman. 
Blake is an alpha through and through. A man tied to his job, works hard and expects the same from his team. But he does care for his team, and looks on them as family. 
We get introduced to Blake’s team (luckily not that large) they all work well together, when not antagonising one another. 
A couple of my favourite characters already were Rhyland and Rhyker. The playful banter between the twin panther shifters and the other members is hilarious to read. 
The book is surprisingly long (but it doesn’t drag anywhere) but really well written. And for a first book I was impressed. Nothing worse than reading pages and pages, but not really going anywhere with it.
Plenty of action (including fight scenes) 😉 yes there is the usual “you mate, me Alpha” but it’s something that goes with the paranormal territory. 
And when they finally meet, it’s not love at first sight, but more like a lot of screaming (that would be Caly) 
Working together they try to find out who or what Caly is (she says she’s human, her scent says different) 

So….. 
We have the bad guy or guys (The Mastermind and The Ghost) We have our team of good guys. And we have a human who doesn’t seem to be what she claims. 
A really good start to what I’m hoping is a wild ride of a series. 
Definitely recommend this book.

About the Author

M.C. Solaris’s life took an unexpected turn during the super blood moon eclipse on January 20, 2019. She woke up and began writing bios for her imaginary friends that she met that day. As soon as the pen hit the paper (or fingertips to the iPhone), she couldn’t stop. It was kind of like one of those fire hydrants, spewing copious amounts of water all over the place. The characters and their stories just flowed out of her. She is honored to be the scribe, getting to share her friends’ stories. You can read all about her gifted friends in the Orion’s Order series (Book 1 is Calypso’s Heart). On a personal note, M.C. Solaris is actually the pseudonym of Marina Schroeder, women’s health enthusiast and lover of all things paranormal romance (PNR) and happily ever after (HEA). When she is not curled up on the sofa with her partner’s oversized hoodie, a PNR novel, peppermint tea, and one of her three cats, you will find her either at the ocean with her toes in the sand or in a forest hugging a tree. Well truthfully? There is one more place you might find her: trolling the aisles of Whole Foods for a satisfying combination of salty and sweet while hiding in her partner’s hoodie… like any proper PNR-writing introvert. Want to get the latest scoop, sneak peeks, and short shares all about her imaginary friends? 

Kindle Review… Tempting Fate: A Love in Eden Short by Sloane Kennedy 👩🏻‍💻

Tempting Fate: A Love in Eden Short by Sloane Kennedy 

Description

Jackson
Everyone says what a lucky guy I am. I’ve got a great kid, an amicable relationship with my ex, and a job working cattle on one of the largest ranches in Eden, Wyoming. Only problem is that “everyone” has no clue that I’m living a half-life.

Because the other half is a closeted gay man who’s got it bad for the young ranch hand he works with day in and day out.

But the very straight Travis isn’t an option. And even if he were, my sexy co-worker isn’t exactly committed to commitment.

So it’s time for a change and since gay guys aren’t exactly falling off trees in Eden, I’m going to need a little help…

Travis
It was supposed to be a Friday night like any other. Me and my best friend heading into town to find some female company for a few hours. And even though Jackson usually goes home alone, he’s still a great wingman.

Unfortunately, between my impatience to get the night started and my bad habit of snooping, I’ve learned two things about Jackson in the space of five minutes that have left me all kinds of confused.

Jackson’s gay.

And he’s placed a classified ad to try and hook up with some guy he can’t get his mind off after a brief run-in at a hardware store in the city.

Now I can’t get my mind off Jackson.

Don’t get me wrong, I like the ladies, but why can’t I stop thinking about my good-looking best friend and the faceless stranger he’s ready to start something new with? Jackson doesn’t need some random guy right now. Not when he has me…

My Review…… 
A short story, in fact you just get into it, and then it’s done! 
Jackson is gay, he’s known for years, but fear and a small town mentality forced him into a marriage he didn’t really want. The only thing to come out of that, was his wife is now his friend and he has a son who he loves more than life. 
Travis is a player, variety is the spice of life. A different lady every time. No commitment, only a fun time. He’s the local hothead, but that’s the way he plays it. He’s got secrets, he’s been hurt in the past, and so that’s how he plays it. 
Told in the POV (point of view) of the characters. 
Jackson has loved Travis for a while now, and watching him with the ladies kills him, he might drive them to the bar, he might do mixed doubles with Travis and the ladies, but nothing happens. So when Jackson gets hit on by a guy, he decides to take matters into his own hands, a date, and who knows what else. It’s time to put his love for Travis in a box, and get on with his life. 
Travis can’t get a hold of his feelings for Jackson, they are mates, and he’s hurt when he finds out Jackson is gay! Why couldn’t he tell his friend? And now he’s going to hook up with some random guy! 
Misunderstandings and hurtful words are thrown around, Travis stalks off to be with a girl and Jackson leaves….. 
It all comes to a head when Travis realises Jackson is missing….. 
So can they make a go of this? Can they keep it a secret? And what happens next? 
I’d love to find out, definitely have to put this author on my “to watch” list. 
This came from an anthology book, I couldn’t find a published date!
