We get something with this May/December romance that we don't see very often - the woman is the December part of the pair, and it's done so very well. Ally isn't a cougar by any stretch of the imagination. She's been through a lot, and for a single mother in the workforce, she has an interesting innocence about her. In fact, both characters are not what we see so often in romance. David is wise beyond his years, having seen his own share of troubles. The romance is a bit of a slow build, but when David and Ally heat up, they are Kindle melting hot. But, David and Ally's story isn't just about the romance. There's so much more packed in these pages and as she so often does, Moore touches on some dark topics that certainly tug on the emotions, topics that are not only current, but also quite prevalent in today's society. I won't go into detail on that because that would spoil it and this is one that shouldn't be spoiled. To sum it up, SEAL'd Legacy is a romance, but it's also a breaking away from the things that hold you back, overcoming adversity and hate, and making a life surrounded by people that lift us up story. Of course, it's not all serious. There's plenty of scorching, sexy fun and some chuckle inducing dialogue between these characters to keep things from getting too dark.
This reader will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series!
'Rescued by the Wolf' by Sasha Summers is Book Two in the "Blood Moon Brotherhood"Series. This is the story of Mal and Olivia. I have read the previous book and think it would help you enjoy this one better if you do read it first. With that said, I do feel you can make this a standalone book if you choose to do so. Mal is a hard feeling wolf who doesn't have soft spots but when he is taken and thrown in a cage he plans his escape. While planning on getting out Olivia is thrown into a cage near him. Olivia is hurt and upset that they are also after her brother. Mal tries to not get involved with her but his 'wolf' wont let him. Mal's 'wolf' wants to protect her so when he escapes he has to take her with him. Olivia is human, but Mal is finding out she has a strong personality. This was an exciting story that I couldn't put down! "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
This one was a bit different than what I've come to expect from this author, but it's just as good. Max and Kate's story does have a touch of darkness, but the story is lighter than Moore's usual fare. SEAL'd Trust is more about what comes after the darkness, after you break away from the bad and start a life with hope. Max and Kate don't start out as lovers and as the story progresses, we get to see a friendship develop - one that gradually becomes more. Max is certainly an alpha male. He's sexy and tough, but he also has a softer side that is quite lovable. Given Kate's recent past, she has some serious trust issues to work through and Max may be just the thing she needs, whether she realizes it or not. This couple is so good together and when they come together, it's off the charts steamy with a touch of sweetness thrown in.
To sum it up, SEAL'd Trust is kind of an enemies to friends to lovers romance. It's sweet and sexy with a bit of humor. It's not just about romance, but about living life with hope and finding that special someone to spend that life with. With a good flow, great characters, and witty dialogue, this one is certainly a page turner and I loved every single word!
Most days there was no conflict between being an arctic werewolf and a cop for Kyle. . For eighteen months Kyle Madden had been hunting the serial killer called the Cage Killer who delighted in taunting the cops. Kyle was a detective. Kyle got a call that he believed was the killer and little “ gifts” had come to the station from the killer like human fingers. The cops were heading to Piedmont House were the Kyle hoped to find the serial killer and the victim before the victim was dead. Kyle thought he could smell the killer but he couldn’t tell his team as they were all human and they didn’t know what he was. They were all apart of the Anchorage Police Department in Alaska. The Cage Killer liked privacy and enclosed places. Every other victim/victims had been found underground. She knew he kept her alive to torture her. She was barely alive but she read the papers and watched tv about previous victims. The Cage killer had her. She heard he cut fingers off and sent them to the police . Her name was Marie. The killer didn’t care about gender, ego, or station in life the only thing in common was their striking looks: white blonde hair and brilliant gold eyes which was the coloring of the true arctic wolf. There had been twelve victims so far. Maria hadn’t been reported missing but she explained she had no family and very few friends. Her occupation had been an artist. But she was now missing some fingers. The killer cut off one finger a day and on the tenth day he killed his victim. When Kyle was a cub his parents had been killed by hunters and the alpha of his wolf pack had cast Kyle out to die but a kindly hunter took Kyle in and raised him. When Kyle was fully grown the hunter set Kyle free in the wild. Kyle’s way of giving back to humans was to be a cop. Kyle believed Maria was an Arctic Wolf and he asked her if she had ever shifted while she was in the hospital. Maria thought Kyle was crazy. But when a man came in her hospital window and threatened to kill Maria with the knife he had she felt something inside her change. Someone was coming and the man went back out the window. Kyle thought the was specifically looking for an Arctic werewolf. When Kyle got back to Maria’s room he apologized and then Maria told him she might have been changing when the killer threaten to kill her . Kyle set it all up that when Maria got out of the hospital that she would go to Dan’s home and Samson would also be there until the killer was caught. Dan and Samson as well as Kyle belonged to the Brotherhood Of The Midnight Sun.
This was an excellent story. I really loved this , the plot was good as was the pace. I loved the action and the mystery. I felt bad of who the killer was. But I had it figured out before the end but that was fine it wasn’t he was brought forward. I love Marie and Kyle together each was there when the other needed them. I loved the closeness of the brotherhood. I loved how everyone accepted and wanted to help Maria. Just another absolutely great book in the series. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend.
Haven Brotherhood #1 Rhenna Morgan Contemporary Romance Carina Press February 21, 2017 Paperback 432 Won from Author
Live hard, f*ck harder and follow only their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six men of the Haven Brotherhood live and bleed by, refusing to conform to society's expectations, taking what they want and always watching each other's backs.
A self-made man with his fingers in a variety of successful businesses, Jace Kennedy lives for the challenge and he always gets what he wants. From the start, he sees Vivienne Moore's hidden wild side and knows she's his perfect match, if only he can break it free. He will have her. One way or another.
Vivienne's determined to ditch the rough lifestyle she grew up in, even if that means hiding her true self behind a bland socialite veneer. Dragging her party-hound sister out of a club was not how she wanted to ring in the New Year, but Viv knows the drill. Get in, get her sister and get back to the safe, stable life she's built for herself as fast as humanly possible. But Viv's plans are derailed when she finds herself crashing into the club's clearly badass and dangerously sexy owner.
Jace is everything Vivienne swore she never wanted, but the more time she spends with him, the more she starts to see that he loves just as fiercely as he fights. He can walk society's walk and talk society's talk, but when he wants something, he finds a way to get it. He's proud of who he is and where he came from, and he'll be damned if he lets Vivienne go before showing her the safest place of all is in the arms of a dangerous man.
This is my first book by Ms. Morgan. I’ve had her Eden series on my reading radar for sometime and I thought I would start with that series, since I mainly read Paranormal Romance / Urban Fantasy, but then I won a copy of the first book for the Haven Brotherhood series. I’m glad I picked up this book.
Let me introduce you to The Haven Brotherhood. Five men, who all have checkered pasts, joined together to make a family and become brothers, not by blood, but by loyalty and obligation. Each brother has a hidden depth to them and add in the rough and tumble biker, well you will fall in love with each one.
Jace Kennedy, what a man. He’s an intelligent businessman, co-founder of the Haven Brotherhood, is charitable and active in the community. But for all that he has a vulnerable side that gets drawn out as you read. I really savored Jace. He’s such a great and well developed character to fall in love with. The man is a bad-boy with a heart of gold.
Vivienne Moore, a straight-laced buttoned-up event planner or so she portrays to the world, but deep inside she has hidden away her true-self and thinks that by suppressing her nature, she will be safe. But in doing this she is stifling herself, not living up to her true potential and freedom. Let’s just say Viv needed someone to mess up her perfect boring life. I wasn’t totally on board with Viv, but by the end she turned out ok.
As for the story their is a little side mystery/danger that Jace and his brothers have to deal with, but the main focus is on the relationship. Jace knows what he wants, but he also respected Viv and reined in his nature for her, so he wouldn’t scare her away. The sexual tension between them was explosive, off the chats, and once they hit the sheets, WOW.
I LOVE the men who formed the Haven Brotherhood and can’t wait to read their stories. Each brother comes with a different background and has brought something different to the family. It’s an entertaining concept.
Rough & Tumble was a satisfying and delightful read in the Haven Brotherhood series.
Rated: 4 Stars
