Excellent End to an Excellent Series
New Moon (Moon Series Book 8) - Lisa Kessler

Jaguar shifter Sebastian Severino is a loner. Having been his father’s assassin for years, he trusts nobody and nobody trusts him.  Isabelle Wood is a wolf shifter and a bounty hunter. She’s determined to take down the evil organization that was responsible for her father’s death, starting with it’s crown prince. When her wolf claims him as her mate while her knife is at his throat, she can’t bring herself to kill him even as she denies what her wolf is telling her.

This is the final book in Lisa Kessler’s Moon series and I think it’s my favorite. I simply fell in love with Sebastian and Isabelle. They book had to go through so much to find family and love in the end, especially Sebastian. It makes me sad that this is the last of a great series. A great book. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Book Review For: New Moon by Lisa Kessler
New Moon (Moon Series Book 8) - Lisa Kessler
New Moon (Moon #8)New Moon by Lisa Kessler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'New Moon' by Lisa Kessler is book 8 in the "Moon" series. This is the story of Sebastian Severino and Isabelle Wood. I have read the last few books in this series but feel this can be a standalone book.
Isabelle is looking for answers in the death of her father and she thinks Sebastian's father might be the one to have been involved. So she attempts to attack him to get those answers but her inter wolf won't let her. Isabelle's inter wolf recognizes him as her mate. Sebastian doesn't approve of his father and his actions, so he is always trying to be a step ahead of him. Isabelle's father was actually a mentor for Sebastian and he cared about him allot. Sebastian tries to stay alone and not connected to people because of the tragedies in his life with the lost of loved ones. But Isabelle is calling to all his protective needs and he is fighting his feelings for her. But these two can't fight their feelings for long!

The Paris Spy
The Paris Spy - Susan Elia MacNeal

I cannot get enough of this series so when I saw this latest installment on Netgalley I just had to request it. No matter what is happening in my life I am always up for reading about Maggie Hope. This time Maggie is in Paris trying to find a spy that she believes might have been compromised and also trying to find her half-sister Elise.

 

While this was was not as dark as some previous books in the series this is still pretty dark and filled with heartbreak for Maggie and readers. As with the other books in the series this follows not only Maggie but other characters. You really grow close to the agents in Paris the more that you read and can't help but feel despair at what happens to certain characters.

 

One of my favorite parts of this book was the growing relationship between Maggie and her sister. They were able to really bond in this book and I hope their relationship gets a chance to grow even further in the future.

 

I was not expecting the ending and it has left me dying to know what happens next.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.

Where do you go once you leave Collars & Cuffs behind...
Before You Break - K.C. Wells,Katrina Parker Williams

‘Before You Break’ is the first book in a new series by K. C. Wells and Parker Williams entitled ‘Secrets’. ‘Secrets’ is in fact a spin off series from the authors’ very popular ‘Collars & Cuffs’ series. While it really isn’t necessary to read that series in order to enjoy this first book and I’m proof of that as I haven’t read the original series yet.

 

I have to admit I can see where parts of this book would have been more enjoyable had I read the original series…like the scene where a group of the characters from ‘Collars & Cuffs’ visit ‘Secrets’ on it’s opening night…not really required to know the background on all of these characters since, with the exception of Eli and Jarod, none of them factor into the main plotline between Ellis and Wayne, the MCs in ‘Before You Break’.

 

I admit it’s just a quirky little thing of mine that I love it when characters from books that I’ve read previously show up in the book I’m reading at the moment, it makes me all happy and bouncy…so, had I read ‘Collars &Cuffs’ I would have had my happy bouncy moment. However, it still made me smile and want to read Collars & Cuffs as soon as possible…so not a fail.

 

‘Before You Break’ is a steamy friends to lovers story and starts off around the same time that Eli and Jarod arrive in London to begin the next step in their lives together as the owners of London’s newest BDSM club, Secrets. I really liked this couple and look forward to reading the book that covers their story, but enough about them. I want to talk about Ellis and Wayne.

 

Ellis and Wayne are members of London’s Specialist Firearms unit and best mates they have been for the past 6 years. Their friendship was immediate from their first meeting when they were partnered together. But what Ellis doesn’t realize is that Wayne’s also in love with him and Wayne’s a DOM. Ellis knows that Wayne’s gay and while Ellis is supposedly straight…sexuality isn’t what defines their relationship.

 

I felt a little skeptical as to how this was going to be even slightly believable and was pleasantly surprised when I realized that in general this story was working for me.

 

One of the main things that made this all come together for me was the fact that while Wayne may have been gay and a DOM and in love with Ellis, I also felt that Wayne’s heart was in the right place. Sure, he wanted it all with Ellis but his first priority for me felt like it was Ellis’s well being. He wanted to help him get himself back on track because as Ellis’s best friend he could see how out of control Ellis was spinning and while he didn’t feel that a D/s relationship was or should be a replacement for any kind of therapy he also knew that his friend was resistant to the idea of therapy so it felt like his hope was that he could help get Ellis grounded and put some discipline and structure back into his life. It felt like Ellis’s well being was what came first for Wayne.


I liked the changes and growth that came between these two men as Ellis learned to trust Wayne in ways that he had never really considered before and I loved seeing Wayne step up not only as he introduced Ellis tot what it meant to truly be in a D/s relationship but as Wayne’s protective instincts took over and he helped Ellis navigate the minefield that was his family.

 

Ellis’s family…as families go was more than a little messed up and it was the strength of Wayne’s love, trust and faith in Ellis that helped him to make the changes necessary to preserve his well being both mentally and physically.

 

‘Before You Break’ was a solid start for this series and I look forward to seeing what happens next for all of these men, Jarod and Eli, Ellis and Wayne as well as any new characters that are introduced and taking a jump back and getting myself caught up with ‘Collars and Cuffs’ where it all began. If you’ve read, Collars and Cuffs’ I think you’ll enjoy this next part of the journey and, if like me you haven’t, you can jump in here and go forward without reading the first series but if it’s as good as this why miss out? I know I’m not going to.

Room for Doubt
Room For Doubt (A Carol Childs Mystery) ... Room For Doubt (A Carol Childs Mystery) (Volume 4) - Nancy Cole Silverman

After the last book in this series I wasn't sure if I was going to continue reading this series. I ultimately decided to give this book a try and I am glad that I did. Carol is back with a really interesting mystery surrounding a death that police have ruled a suicide. Carol's investigation with the help of pesky but hunky PI Chase will lead her to discover covered up murders that just might lead her to a group of women determined to get justice.

 

I was glad that Carol didn't seem too over her head in the investigation in this book. Her decisions and behavior (especially towards the end) really surprised me. I have to admit that I didn't like the relationship between her and Chase or at least what it became. I liked it better when she was annoyed with him.

 

While the plot at times seemed a bit far-fetched I still really enjoyed this book. I look forward to reading more from this series.

 

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
