Good Characters and Story
Honor Before Heart (Emerald Belles, #1) - Heather McCorkle

Corporal Sean MacBranian is injured in battle and wakes up to the sight of an Irish Angel. His blond-haired, blue-eyed nurse has now given him a reason to live. Ashlinn knows it’s a big risk, but she can’t help but give Sean her heart. Will their love survive the ultimate test?

I don’t get many that are set in the Civil War so this was a nice change for me. This was a sweet book with good, strong characters. It took a little bit, but I was really drawn into the story and the characters’ journeys. I recommend.

This was a sweet book with good, strong characters.

4.2 Out Of 5 "don't look into my eyes" STARS
The Deep End of the Sea - Heather Lyons

 

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

~BOOK BLURB~

The Deep End of the Sea

Heather Lyons

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

 

What if all the legends you’ve learned were wrong?

 

Brutally attacked by one god and unfairly cursed by another she faithfully served, Medusa has spent the last two thousand years living out her punishment on an enchanted isle in the Aegean Sea. A far cry from the monster legends depict, she’s spent her time educating herself, gardening, and desperately trying to frighten away adventure seekers who occasionally end up, much to her dismay, as statues when they manage to catch her off guard. As time marches on without her, Medusa wishes for nothing more than to be given a second chance at a life stolen away at far too young an age.

 

But then comes a day when Hermes, one of the few friends she still has and the only deity she trusts, petitions the rest of the gods and goddesses to reverse the curse. Thus begins a journey toward healing and redemption, of reclaiming a life after tragedy, and of just how powerful friendship and love can be—because sometimes, you have to sink in the deep end of the sea before you can rise back up again.

~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~

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

 

Heather Lyons is one of my favorite Authors, because of her series The Collectors Society.  If you haven't tried this series yet then you should.

 

I'm not mythology junkie, so I went into this knowing what the average person knows about Greek Mythology.  Which are only the basics.  With that being said…I thought this a deftly done and modern take on Medusa and the Greek Gods, one that I rather enjoyed reading.  The romance was sometimes on the bland side, but for those haters of insta-love, this could be just what they are looking for.  My only qualm was I really wanted more intensity throughout the story instead of only at the very end.

Release Day Review! Bitten Under Fire (Bravo Team WOLF #2) Heather Long!
Bitten Under Fire - Heather Long

 

 

Bianca Devlin’s work is her life. Now, she’s finally taking a vacation…and guerillas hit her resort to kidnap a diplomat’s son. She does the only thing that makes sense—intervene to save the child’s life. Being dragged into the jungle with a scared kid she’s determined to protect was definitely not how she saw this trip ending. 

After she returns to Texas, the last person Bianca expected to see was Sergeant Carlos “Cage” Castillo, the member of Bravo Team WOLF that helped rescue her. Nevertheless, there he is, living across the street from the house she just bought. The coincidence is alarming, but she has to admit, his presence isn’t entirely unwanted. 

But there’s something off about Cage—the way he can move without a sound or the weird way his eyes seem to almost glow at times. And how can Bianca manage her growing attraction, when everything she knows about him and his reason for being there, turns out to be a lie?

 

 

The second book in the Bravo Team WOLF series by Heather Long confirms that my initial assessment of this series was spot on, in fact I would have to say I may have underestimated a bit. Bitten Under Fire is a thrilling romance that gets the heart pumping and passion raging.

 

This story starts off with quite an adrenaline punch and gets more exciting as it continues. It is fast paced with lots of dangerous thrills, twists that keep readers on the edge of their seat and a major secret that not only will have to be revealed but could destroy all the happiness this couple could have before it really gets started.

 

Bianca and Cage have lots of electrifying chemistry and being the strong, compelling characters they are, they easily draw readers into their lives as they strive for an happily ever after which in there is threatened by a major secret and plenty of emotional turbulence.  The attraction between Bianca and Cage is undeniable, the passion is red hot and readers can’t help but hope that they can overcome the obstacles and become another strong Bravo Team WOLF couple.

 

Heather Long has definitely created an exciting paranormal military world with lots of fascinating characters that I just want to sink my teeth into again and again. These wolves are tough, sexy and easily set hearts to pounding and passions burning and I can’t wait until their next mission.

 

 

 

Bitten Under Fire is the 2nd book in the Bravo Team WOLF series which includes:

 

  • When Danger Bites
  • Bitten Under Fire

& Black Wolf Down is coming soon.

 

Bitten Under Fire is available in print or ebook at:

Amazon   B&N   GPlay   Kobo   iBooks

Nothing Left to Burn by Heather Ezell
Nothing Left To Burn - Heather Ezell

I thought that this book was okay.  It was one of those stories that I liked but didn't love and will ultimately find rather forgettable.  I am really not sure what caused me to add this one to my reading list since the cover does nothing for me and the synopsis is only mildly appealing.  I did find this book to be a fairly quick read and I was entertained but it was never a book that was hard to set aside.

This book jumped around in time quite a bit.  About half of the book occurs on the day the fire comes so close to Audrey's home that she is evacuated.  The rest of the book is set prior to that day.  The present day events are told in a chronological manner but the flashes to the past do jump around just a bit with some happening closer to the fire and others at different times in Audrey's relationship with Brooks. 

I never really connected with any of the characters.  Audrey often did things that didn't make sense to me.  I kind of wanted to sit her down and give her a good mom talk since she seemed to be on a rather destructive path.  Brooks was a character that I never trusted and his relationship with Audrey was rather unhealthy. 

I did like the fact that the story was centered around a fire.  I thought that it was a really original setting and some of the descriptions of the fire were truly frightening.  I did find some parts of the story to be rather predictable but I wanted to keep reading to see if things would actually work out the way I thought they would.  I do have to say that I was really disappointed by the way the book ended.  I really felt like the book just kind of stopped instead offering some kind of resolution. 

I do think that a lot of readers will like this one a lot more than I did.  This was as story that kept me turning pages.  I would not hesitate to read future books by this debut author.

I received a digital review copy of this book from Penguin Publishing Group - Razorbill via First to Read.

Review! When Danger Bites (Bravo Team WOLF #1) Heather Long!
When Danger Bites - Heather Long

 

 

Buttoned-up Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is dangerous on every level. As a human, she poses a threat to Marine Captain Jax Raymond’s special Force Recon unit. Though the team has a reputation among the other recon units, only their commanding officer knows their secret. As a woman, the danger posed is entirely different. Jax can survive the temptation for only so long before his wolf takes over and pursues what it wants. 

Military intelligence specialist Corporal Kaitlyn Amador is the first woman in the Marines to be assigned to a recon team. And everyone’s watching her. Her mission? Not only prove herself worthy of her place in the group, but uncover the mystery of why Bravo Team is so successful. A mission that gets more difficult every time she’s near Jax…

 

 

 

When Danger Bites is a thrilling read that bites back! The story starts off with some intrigue that catches readers’ interest and holds them hostage until the very end. The story is fast paced and while there isn’t a whole bunch of shoot ‘em ups or knock down drag out action, the story seems to be full of adrenaline pumping excitement and there is not a dull moment to be found. The story also has a bit of realistic feel because it takes an all too human issue that our women face today – the one about women in combat – and of course the way the wolves ended up in the Bravo Team WOLF unit sounds like something that would definitely happen in real life. And just so you know the intrigue keeps the suspense building throughout the story not only to do with unit but it affects the romantic side of things as well.

 

Speaking of which, Jax and Kaitlyn are two strong characters that have a chemistry full of electricity and has sparks flying from the pages from the very first meeting. They easily draw readers in and build a connection which has readers dying to know if this couple’s happily ever after will work out. There is quite a bit of emotional turmoil as well as some smokin’ hot passion throughout the story to add depth and a spice to the story.

 

Heather Long did a great job of creating her military world and made it very lifelike which made it easy for me to picture each and every scene as it played out and her fascinating characters are full of a vibrancy that ensures I get to know the whole Bravo Team WOLF unit, so I can’t wait to read the next book which is due to be released soon.

 

 

 

When Danger Bites is the 1st book in the Bravo Team WOLF series.

 

The 2nd book – Bitten Under Fire will be released on May 28, 2018.

 

When Danger Bites is available in print or ebook at:
