Fierce Obsessions is one of those books that I put off reading. Now, after completing this beautiful story, I am wondering why. Riley Porter was introduced in book 5 of the Phoenix Pack. If you never read book 5, my advice would be to stop and go back and read Savage Urges.
Riley Porter is a raven shifter whose life was filled with discord, pain, and sorrow. And now it seems that the fates are not finished playing games with her life.
Tao Lukas is the Phoenix pack enforcer. He doesn’t like lone shifters, especially ones who might be carrying secrets that might come to harm his pack. But, for some reason he can’t stop the attraction he feels towards the all secretive Riley Porter.
It was nice to see all the old characters from the other books make an appearance. Fierce Obsessions is that one book that you might just want to read repeatedly all summer long. The interaction between Tao and Riley was beyond hot. I really liked how this story turned out it was rather entertaining.

Samantha Becker is a busy and talented trauma surgeon with no time for nonsense. Her sister may have a special Shifter Gene, but Sammie is fairly certain she doesn’t have it, and she’s happy with her life the way it is. She doesn’t need the complicated Shifter lifestyle, and she certainly doesn’t need Liam Keller: Alpha cougar, Mayor of Cougarville and undercover billionaire. She hates him, but Liam is unable to get the curvy surgeon out of his head.

But the Shifter world isn’t ready to let Sammie go. She’s being stalked by someone who’s desperate for Shifter hormones, and Liam takes it upon himself to protect Sammie from harm. Things begin heating up between Sammie and Liam, but will they have to succumb to their inner animals in order to save Sammie’s life?

Cougar Bait is fun, sexy and will take readers on an emotional thrill ride.

Cougar Bait is book #2 in Evangeline Anderson Cougarville series. What can I say…I thought this book was pretty fun. The book was aptly named. A younger man falling for an older woman. The Older woman trying not to fall in love with the younger man. But when that man is a hot shifter. What can a woman do…? but sit back and enjoy the ride.

Unfortunately, I never read the first book in this series. I just might have too, this one certainly kept my attention. I liked how sweet and crafty Liam was to make Samantha fall for him. Even though I found Samantha annoying at times.

Nonetheless, Evangeline Anderson has done what she set out to do. Writing characters that some readers could relate too.

Shadow Reaper ( Shadow Riders #2)

Shadow Reaper (Shadow Riders Novel, A) by [Feehan, Christine]Shadow Reaper

Series: Shadow Riders #2

My rating:

Author: Christine Feehan

Publisher: Berkley

Print Length: 397 Pages

Publication Date: May 30, 2017


 

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan returns to her scorching-hot series starring a Chicago crime family that has built its empire in the shadows…

Billionaire playboy Ricco Ferraro knows no other life. Being a shadow rider is in his blood—but so is a haunting desperation stemming from the secrets of his dark past. His recklessness puts not only his life at risk, but also the future of his entire family. To save them all, he must find a woman who can meet his every desire with a heat all her own…

Just when Ricco has given up hope, he meets her—a mysterious woman whose shadow connects with his. She’s someone looking for a safe haven from the danger that has stalked her over the last several months. In Ricco’s embrace, she finds one. But the darkness in which they so often find sanctuary can also consume them…

As per Goodreads’ it ought to have taken me 7 hours and 53 minutes to peruse Shadow Reaper. All things considered, it just took this critic 5 hours to finish up Shadow Reaper the second title in Christine Feehan new series Shadow Riders.

A Little piece of advice. Figure out how to put a book down, particularly on the off chance that you should work the next morning. All things considered, this advice might be for me more than all you the readers. In any case, on to my review.

Shadow Reaper is a tension, thriller, romantic suspense. (Attempt to state that three times genuinely quick.) 😊 Told in the third person. Nothing stunning up until this point… right! All things considered, the stunning part is I was reluctant on obtaining this book. Yes, K. Yearwood who never missed a Christine Feehan new release almost didn’t buy a title in light of mixed reviews of Shadow Reaper. Try not to misunderstand me I would have read the book regardless, however, as opposed to buying, I would have gone to my nearby library and obtained the title. I took a risk and it paid off.

Shadow Reaper was past extraordinary. Only I could give Shadow Reaper more than five stars!
I am so eager in the wake of reading Shadow Reaper that I will try not to give excessive spoilers.

This story is about one of the many siblings of Stefano Ferraro whom we had the delight of meeting in Shadow Rider.

Ricco Ferraro’s story starts with a terrible fender bender, with just his sister-in-law, Francesca Ferraro, spouse to Stefano, trusting that he didn’t do it deliberately. Afterward, it was discovered that a specific part was defective.

The huge mystery wasn’t….Why did the accident happen? It wasn’t even….Who, was behind it? Despite the fact, that it ought to have been. It was…When! That is right. Ricco had an enormous mystery that he was keeping from his family. Now 10 years after the fact, he is forced to reveal his secret in order to save their lives.

Shadow Reaper was quick paced and I couldn’t put the book down until the last page was turned. Yes, I surrendered four hours of rest. In any case, I don’t regret not one moment of it. I would have kicked myself on the off chance that I would have put off reading Shadow Reaper.

So, in case you’re uncertain if you ought to buy this title. Give me a chance to be the one to comfort your psyche. Purchase the book you, you will love it.

For those of you who are Christine Feehan’s fans. Which I do include myself among the ranks. Christine Feehan went hard and fast on making Shadow’s Reaper the best so far in her new series. IMOP

There it is. All finished. I didn’t give too much away… did I? 😊

Pick up your copy of Shadow Reaper to meet the baddest family in town!

Jordan: New Orleans Magic

Jordan (New Orleans Magic Book 1) by [Rebecca York] Jordan by Rebecca York

My rating: Emoji Sad Face Related Keywords & Suggestions - Emoji Sad Face Long ...

Publisher: Season Publishing

Publication Date: Jun 1, 2017

Print Length: 84 pages


Jordan: New Orleans Magic is the first part of a three-part series penned by Rebecca York. It’s a paranormal romantic suspense.

Somebody is slaughtering supporters of Camille DuPree. Camille’s restaurant. Presently to protect her benefactors she employed a security organization. In any case, unbeknownst to Camille her past and present intersect when her old flame comes entering back into her life.

This book I couldn’t get into. I liked the puzzle, the character’s not really. Indeed, even the purpose for their separation had a Romeo and Juliet plot just with a more joyful closure. The plot was well developed. However, again the characters required somewhat more work.

Just One Touch (Slow Burn Novels #5)

Just One Touch: A Slow Burn Novel (Slow Burn Novels) by [Banks, Maya]Just One Touch by Maya Banks

My rating:

Publisher: Avon

Sold By:  HarperCollins Publishers

Publication Date: May 23, 2017

Print Length: 352 pages


#1 USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks continues her suspenseful and sizzling Slow Burn series with the fifth book featuring the men and women of Devereaux Security Services.

Abducted as a young girl and raised in a strict religious cult, Jenna has no connection to the outside world beyond vague flashes of memory that seem to be from another life. Memories she clings to when the cult leaders discover her extraordinary ability to heal—and punish her. Years held captive and forced to do the cult’s bidding have turned Jenna into a meek, timid woman…or so they think. In truth, she is merely biding her time, waiting for the perfect moment to escape.

When a terrified young woman stumbles across Isaac’s path, Devereaux Security’s toughest recruit is intrigued by the beautiful, sheltered stranger. Jenna seems to know nothing of the world around her and refuses to tell him what danger haunts her, but Isaac will do whatever it takes to gain her trust. When it becomes clear that very powerful, dangerous people are after her, he vows to protect her at all costs… because with just one touch Issac knows he wants Jenna to be his—forever.

If you love to read supernatural, paranormal romance then you’re in luck. Maya Banks has a book just up your alley. It’s titled Just One Touch it’s the fifth book in her Slow Burn series. I read two others in this series, besides this one. So, picking this series back up I didn’t feel I was missing anything. Therefore, stand-alone this could be considered. But…you know there is always a but! But, I will still advise if you can, to read this story in order of publication. So, of course, I am going to take my own advice and purchase the others in this series.
Just One Touch is due for publication on May 23, 2017. This book is about 256 pages long. And if you read the previous titles, you will glad to know that those characters too, find themselves making an appearance.
Just One Touch was a quick read from beginning to end. With well-developed plot and strong characters that complement each other.
I found that I did enjoy this book significantly. There is a huge difference between the way she writes her action adventure and her paranormal/Supernatural titles. The big difference is there is more interaction between the characters in her paranormal titles than in her action adventure type titles.
Just One Touch I would recommend to paranormal/Supernatural readers. Or even to the readers that just is looking for something different.

 

 

 

Talen (Dark Protectors, #7.76)

Talen by Rebecca Zanetti

My rating: 

Publisher: Lyrical Press

Publication Date: June 6, 2017

Print Length: 96 pages


I have been a blogger for just about three years now. 😊 It has been a journey to come this far. Thank you, everyone, who’s following my blog from the conception. But as life has shown us. It’s forever changing and evolving. So, like life…I too must evolve. To begin this transformation, I will start with the way I rate my books. Nothing too huge. For even though life changes, I am only human, and as such, don’t really care for change.

But I am doing away with the plain looking stars. Yep, gone and forever shall we part. Out with the old in with the new. Yearwood La Novela is going animated. Thus, depending on how great the book was, will depend on what the animation shall be. To implement this modification. I thought that Talen should be the perfect book to do the big reveal.

Again, thanks to all my old followers and hello new ones. On to the book review.

She’ll love him forever . . . but he can’t make her obey . . .

The war is over. Danger has passed. Cara Kayrs is healed after decades of illness and ready for a break.

Too bad her brooding, alpha vampire husband can’t seem to change gears. In their twenty-five years, together Talen Kayrs has learned to sense every shiver of her body, to ignite her desire with a word or a look. She would think he could learn she’s not some fragile damsel in distress.

But Talen is on edge, watching their backs, treating her like she’s made of glass. Like there’s something following them, a deadly threat that somehow none of their intelligence has uncovered. It’s enough to drive a woman crazy, and Talen has plenty of those tendencies already.

But what’s even more maddening is that he seems to be right . . .

Never think something is ever complete. As author knows that when a character speaks to you, it must be time to write their story. Well, Talen and Cara spoke to Rebecca Zanetti. Their journey wasn’t finished like we thought.  We see that it has been twenty-fives years that Talen and Cara have been married. That they’re happily married with two adult children and one adorable grandchild. What we also see, is Talen being Talen. That’s right…you would think that after twenty-five years and there’s peace among demons that Talen would stop being over protective. Nope! And like Talen is found saying “I have lived over a decade, to know that peace is short lived.” Not a perfect quote, but you see what I mean. But later you would understand that Talen is never wrong. Because no sooner, then they leave the house demons are hot on their trail. And their mission is to capture Cara.
It is not too often, that authors revisit old characters, and we as readers get to see our beloved characters once more and to see how they’re faring. You would think once that character or characters story has been told that its the end of it. But it’s nice to know, we can never assume anything.

Like in their original story, Talen is again a badass, out to prove that he is still nothing to mess with….in war or peace time. And when it comes to protecting Cara he would do absolutely anything.

For Talen to be a short novella, it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with Talen and Cara all over again. I think this might be true for you.

A Cascadia Wolves novella

Megan Warden, Seattle’s devoted Enforcer of the Cascadia pack, knows that she has a mate. Somewhere. She’s just never found him. Then there he is at her cousin’s wedding. Megan isn’t just drawn to the werewolf’s masculine, head-spinning scent – she’s consumed by it. He seems so perfect, there has to be a catch…

With a successful practice in Las Vegas, Dr. Shane Rosario has lived outside the pack since he was born. Raised to hide his wolf in shame, he always assumed he’d marry a human.

Until Megan. Shane thrills to the ease with which she wears her wolf, and he craves ever inch of her. But the idea of forever could be impossible. He’s not willing to abandon his human life – even for a mate.

Something’s got to give. Because this time, even destiny may not be enough to bind them.

Lauren Dane didn’t waste any time in getting directly into the action. In Bonded Pair, Megan had to put up with a lot, traveling with her family to a wedding, to meeting her mate who had serious issues.
Shane was a successful doctor, who by right was a werewolf. Growing up he had to hide what he was to appease his mother. Not knowing what he was missing until he met his mate. But even meeting his mate didn’t solve years of abuse by his mother. Yes, Shane had mommy issues. If he can’t stop deny who and what he is, he will lose the best thing that ever happened to him.
Bonded Pair was fast passed and didn’t skimp on the romance. It had a strong character development to the point that you could relate to the struggle these two had to go through to be together.
