Undiscovered (Amoveo Rising #1) by Sara Humphreys
Undiscovered - Sara Humphreys

 

 

 

He's the man of her dreams
A long time ago, Zander Lorens was cursed to walk the earth stripped of his Dragon Clan powers. Every night, trapped in a recurring nightmare, Zander relives his darkest moment. He can hardly believe it when the dream changes and a beautiful young woman appears. Zander believes she's the key to ending his torment. Finding her in the real world is one thing, but how will he convince her of who-and what-she really is?

She's the end to his nightmare
Rena McHale uses her unique sensitivity as a private investigator, touting herself as a "human divining rod" and finder of the lost. By day she struggles with sensory overload, and by night her sleep is haunted by a fiery dragon shifter. Nothing in her life makes sense, until the man from her dreams shows up at her door with a proposition...

 

 

 

Cursed brothers redemption begins. First runner up: Zander.

It took awhile for any of the cast members to grow on me and its hard to explain but mostly the automatic you got no choice condition irked me more than once through the book. Both in Zanders case and in Rena's.

Zander knows what its like to have something put upon him without his say so, so when he constantly uses the same tactics on Rena it had a tendency to get on my nerves because really - hypocrite.

Despite that I did like Zander and Rena together as a couple and I did like the world building that Humphreys has created in this book.

I hit a snag at one point though because I thought this was the first book to the A- Rising series - which it is but it felt as if it were attached to another series I hadn't read yet. I'm not sure where it ties in however the author does not leave you lacking in information as its well detailed in what's going on. So regardless of whether you've read her previous books shouldn't matter. Although I would like to note I do plan on catching up on them because I have a feeling it matters in some form.

I'd like to note that dragon- shifters are hard to write on paper and bring to life so the fact that Humphreys really goes for it gains some level of respect in my book. I'd also like to note that she handles it well enough even though we don't get the whole dragon thing as much as I'd like I am keeping in mind this is the intro so I'm being patient.

I did appreciate Zander as a character because he has a lot of family devotion loyalty going on and that's endearing so I'm totally clinging to that. Plus he's sexy so points for him anyway.

Undiscovered is a fascinating read that I fully enjoyed. I highly recommend.

Heat
Brave the Heat - Sara Humphreys

Gavin has not been pining for Jordan this whole time.  Or has he?  When she returns to their hometown, he finds he has never stopped loving her.

 

Jordan has had so much happen to her in life.  Now, she must protect her children from harm.  Going home is all she knows to do.  Only home is where a fire bug is getting more excited.

 

Great start to the McGuire Brothers series.  There is a ton going on, great humor, and a sincere love story woven through it all.  I cannot wait to read the rest of the series!  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Under Her Skin (Blank Canvas #1) by Adriana Anders

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A darkly possessive relationship has left Uma alone and on the run.

 

Beneath her drab clothing, she hides a terrible secret—proof of her abuse, tattooed onto her skin in a lurid reminder of everything she’s survived.

 

Caught between a brutal past and an uncertain future, Uma’s reluctant to bare herself to anyone…

much less a rough ex-con whose rage drives him in ways she will never understand.

 

But beneath his frightening exterior, Ivan is gentle. Warm. Compassionate.

 

And just as determined to heal Uma’s broken heart as he is to destroy the monster who left his mark scrawled across the delicate tapestry of her skin.

 

 

 



 

For such an emotionally cold and characteristically harsh book, Under her Skin was an intensely emotional read for me.

The world is not a kind place as Uma discovers in this book so do readers who understand what its like to be on the receiving end of relationships like the ones she's suffered through. 

Under her Skin is a great read, and although I have few words to express why I liked it so much that will remain a personal thing for me.

Roadside Assistance (Body Shop Bad Boys #2) by Marie Harte
Roadside Assistance (Body Shop Bad Boys) - Marie Harte

Foley Sanders figured he'll always be content with a life of cars and casual hookups. Until a run-in with Cyn, a statuesque firecracker with a hate-on for men, leaves him bewitched and intrigued-much to her annoyance.

Maybe Cynthia Nichols was a little hard on Foley, that muscular, tattooed, super-hot mechanic next door. But she's tired of feeling defensive about her size and has sworn off men. She's got a new job, new life, perfect plan. Foley has trouble written all over him-no way is she going to fall for his charms.

Foley might look like a bad idea, but underneath, he's all gentleman. Too bad Cyn's not buying it. What's a bad boy to do when the goddess of his dreams won't give him the time of day?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I judged this book by the cover. Who seriously wouldn't? Yummy.

The cast was interesting, although I felt all the pre-history angst was a little much, a simple mention would have sufficed but anyways this creates a hiccup in Cynthia's self confidence which hangs over a lot of the book. Foley and Cynthia are an opposites attract kind of couple she's a more "regular" chick while he's one of those out of her league types from what she thinks.

There's a little something sort of under the current of their relationship that doesn't quite feel real to me. They both have their issues and personal baggage but I liked that they had this attraction because why shouldn't a not so skinny girl be able to hook up with someone much more attractive than she feels she is?

The only thing I felt could have used more development was the emotional aspect of their relationship because it felt as if they were both so occupied by their own issues that they weren't completely "open" for a relationship. However I still enjoyed Roadside Assistance and I still enjoyed both Foley and Cynthia.

Her Rogue Alpha (X-Ops #5) by Paige Tyler
Her Rogue Alpha (X-Ops) - Paige Tyler

HE'LL DO ANYTHING FOR HER
Former Special Forces Lieutenant Jayson Harmon can't believe that his war scars don't matter to beautiful feline shifter Layla Halliwell. Why would she saddle herself with a broken man?

But Layla knows that Jayson is a hero to the core, and that only she can heal his wounded soul. So when Jayson is deployed on another deadly mission, no way is Layla staying behind.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her Rogue Alpha was a wonderful book that I really liked. I especially liked Layla and Jayson because they are complete under dogs that have no confidence in themselves but are totally loved for exactly who they are regardless of the fact that they are both trying so hard to be anything but themselves.

They are both trying to change who they are to prove they can be better and can be worthy of the other but what they don't see is that they are already perfect and already liked for who they are before they go out trying to prove they can be more than they are.

Its them having to learn to love themselves for who they are and open their hearts into accepting that so that they can learn to accept that they are loved for who they are and not who they think they need to be. Its sad but its sweet. That's the mixture that makes Her Rogue Alpha so perfect for me.
