Hurry up
Blood Guard: A Mission Novel - Megan Erickson

This new Mission series sets your heart pounding right away!  We begin with Athan finding Tendra.  Scaring her to death is only part of his charm.  He is also really attracted to his charge.  Duty must win over lust, since he needs to get her to his brother immediately to save the human race.

 

Tendra AKA "Ten" is a very personable and sincere loner.  She is surprised that she can feel such strong emotions for Athan - that is not hate.  He is very attractive, and her heart goes pitter patter anytime he even looks at her.  If only she could be his...

 

This book charmed me almost from page one.  The characters were strong, but not overbearing.  I think the lore makes people feel like vampires should be - but I am glad in this book the MC is not.  I love their story and I absolutely cannot wait for the next installment in this amazing new series!  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Mature Content - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

I haven't been doing that great with reading (or reviewing when I do read) lately. But I want to make more of an effort again. So I'm going to try and put my thoughts into words for this one.

 

What can I say?

 

Megan and Santino are the perfect writing due. I get excited every time I see there is going to be a new book in this series and each book has been a hit for me so far. Each book. I am not exaggerating. I love them. They are like crack.

 

This is a lot lighter than the previous book in the series, Hard Wired, which might be a bonus for some. 

 

Beau and Zane like it rough. And sexually, they're compatible, but they do not like each other. Which is a shame, because compatible. But like every good enemies to lovers romance should have, they start to warm up to each other once they continue getting hot and heavy. Then feelings grow and they start wanting more from their relationship.

 

Both characters were great. Zane wasn't afraid to distance himself from his crappy family, but also loved his grandmother and had a great relationship with her. Beau was doing his best to recover from what his ex did to him, tried to add some positivity to the world, but was also able to admit in the end that a lot of it was forced. I loved that he supported Zane with his channel and wanted to see him succeed. I loved Zane's honesty and the fact he wasn't ashamed of himself.

 

Some amazing secondary characters here, too. Zane's grandma for the win!

 

I will admit to cringing at one particular scene and wanting to bang my head against a wall. I saw the incident coming a mile away and knew something would happen, but Lord was it brutal. Took away from my enjoyment a little, tiny bit. Not a whole lot, though, and I would still recommend this!

Strong characters, strong connections
Blood Guard: A Mission Novel - Megan Erickson
I did not know what to expect but I got an interesting ride. This is a world where vampires live among humans while a war brews between vampire clans. Athan is sexy, honest, and driven. Tendra has lived an unstable life built on moving and loss of family. With a cat as her companion, she finds a way to trust Athan and make decisions that affect her life as well as others. The two of them are a strong couple and will do anything for each other. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Fast Connection by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell Review
Fast Connection (Cyberlove) (Volume 2) - Megan Erickson,Santino Hassell

 

 

After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan--the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.

When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.

He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated

 

Review

 

This is a great book with an unlikely hero in Nick.

This book tackles a lot of crazy topics and it comes out on top. What is it like to be a working class guy in all the ways who discovers he is bisexual? How do you readjust to leaving the service? How do you come home when the messy family life you left behind is still there and you have grown up but no one else has? How do you balance your needs and wants against your kin's?

Nick is brash and rude and a real jerk in the first book in the series but we see that he is a heart of gold character who really risks himself in all ways and loves deeply. He is charming and silly and intense.

Lucas has been burned in relationships and is raising his teens. He doesn't see Nick coming and has to learn to love and trust again to really have joy.

Oh, and it is all hot as hell.

Wonderful!

Great Book With Great Characters
Blood Guard: A Mission Novel - Megan Erickson

Tendra was running late and with all the time she had missed at her job she was in danger of being fired. Tendra worked at a bar called The Rose is a not so great part of town. Brex was Tendra’s cat and the closest thing Tendra now had to family now. Brex and tendra understood each other somehow. Like how Brex had never left Tendra’s side when her mom died. Tendra had lived in the apartment now for five years even though it was rundown. Tendra hated feeling vulnerable and had felt nothing but that for weeks. Maybe it was time for tendra and brex to leave Mission City to start over. Tendra knew how to start over as Tendra had been doing that all her life. Tendra felt like she was allergic to laying down roots, to allow herself to be beholding to anyone else. Five years had been the longest tendra had lived anywhere. It was great working at The Rose in that not only did Tendra make money but it also took her mind off everything. Moving so much Tendra was always the outsider but she did have a couple of friends she trusted especially Ruby.  Tendra wasn’t sure what it would be like to be fully accepted. Tendra’s mom said her dad had left when Tendra was a baby and later on her mom had heard her father had been in a car accident and died. So after her mother had passed tendra had no living relatives. Also tendra hadn’t found someone she wanted to have a child with. Tendra knew she was being followed when she walked home after work and readied her switchblade that she always carried with her. But he was too fast and big and neither her switchblade or her stiletto made contact on the man. Then he put Tendra to sleep. Then when Tendra came to Brex was next to her and the man told her the cat there with some of her clothes. The man also told kendra he was a vampire and her blood guard as she was to be delivered to his older brother to make their clan stronger. Then the man said his clan was of Vampires and his name was Athan. Tendra believed vampires weren’t real but then Athan proved to her and she started to believe him. Then Athan commented on how Tendra knew self defense and she told him when she was still in school she and a couple of friends  had been on a field trip and had been kidnapped. The girls  were told they would be held until after dark. But a classmate had followed and got the license number of the car and they were rescued before dark. Neither Tendra or her friends knew why they had been kidnapped. She remembered every time her and her mom had moved when Athan brought up they had moved around a lot.  There had always been real fear in her mom's eyes when they moved and the had moved quickly every time. Athan told Tendra her mother’s duty had been to prepare Tendra to take her place as Sanquivita of the Gregorie vampire clan. Which meant Tendra was the sole human provider of blood for Athan’s brother the future king. Athan said her mom would have told her soon about everything but the Valyrians had killed her mom first. The Valyrians were a rival vampire clan and they wanted to enslave all humans as blood banks for the vampires. The Valyrians had been trying to kill Tendra since they had learned of her existence. Tendra’s blood will make Idris - Athan’s brother- strong enough to beat the Valyrians. Tendra was the first in ten generations as it had taken ten generations to make this power in Tendra’s blood. Athan said his brother idris was a good man and would treat her well. The Valyrians had hired vampire assassins to find and kill tendra before she could fulfill her destiny. The whole Gregorio clan would have to help to get Tendra to Idris.

I loved this story and could find nothing bad to say about it or I didn’t like about the book. I loved that. I loved how Athan was with Tendra after he explained things to her and as time went on. I loved the plot and pace of this book. It was a unique take on a vampire paranormal story and I loved it. I loved Athan and Idris but the names were a mouthful. I loved the action,suspense,  betrayal, lies. greed, and all that went into this story. I loved Athan and Tendra together and was very happy how things turned out. This was a great fun read and i never had a problem with the story keeping my attention. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and i highly recommend.
