Prequel to Sons of the Alpha – Knight

 

A tale as old as time--with a Paranormal twist!

 

Rebecca Hartford hates Valentine's Day.  That is, until the mysterious, attractive Erik Leonid bursts into the café where she sits eating alone that afternoon.  Then her entire world, and all of her preconceptions, turns upside-down and will never be the same.  That means learning to love someone from the inside-out regardless of her fears and those seeking to harm them both for their forbidden relationship.

 

She only hopes it will be enough.

 

 

Sons of the Alpha Book 1

by Addison Carmichael

Genre: Paranormal Romance

 

Alexia Raine has a major problem.

 

She’s being stalked by very dangerous men for some unknown reason, but one that will turn her entire world on its axis.

 

Neil Duran has five major problems.

 

Just when he’s closing in on a vicious werewolf hunter that is kidnapping, torturing and killing their people, he’s pulled from the case by his High Alpha, Rob Bryant, to locate and return the daughter of their most valuable and gifted shifter.  If he doesn’t, their entire Wolf Pack in the Pacific Northwest might collapse and lose all hard-won territory, shifting the balance of powers and throwing the entire were-kind species into a world war.

 

Problem one—Alexia Raine never knew her real father.

 

Problem two—She doesn’t even know that shifters or were-kind exist.

 

Problem three—Their rival Pack wants her and will stop at nothing to acquire her for several unspeakable reasons.

 

Problem four—She’s the most aggravating, infuriating, intoxicating woman he’s had the displeasure to rescue.  And he may very well be falling in love with her.

 

Problem five—A wolf always finds and protects his mate.

 

 

 

It’s bad enough Nicole Gabrielle is a low-ranking Sigma Wolf—she also harbors a taboo secret that would expel her from the Bryant Wolf pack there in the Pacific Northwest. 

 

Nicki is half were-Coyote born from the notorious Juarez Coyote Pack. 

 

But Nicki has bigger problems. Were-Bear gangsters blackmailed her family, and the only way to pay them off is to doctor her Pack records and disguise herself in order to hire on at the exclusive Timber Ridge community. No matter how hard she tries to fly under everyone’s radar, however, the hot and charming Jake Bryant pursues her with a royal vengeance, risking exposure to her deadly secret. 

 

As the High Alpha’s heir apparent, Jake Bryant must abide by one specific Wolf law—he can never marry anyone below his Alpha rank. Unfortunately, his forced-upon fiancée Eva LeBlanc only loves his half-brother Neil. 

 

If only he could locate his mystery “Sheila” who rescued him from Arcan Hunters one night twelve years ago. She is the only person who has been able to help him make sense of his chaotic life, and the only woman he’s ever truly desired. 

 

With the exception of this intriguing new employee in the Pack organization…who seems strangely familiar.

 

 

 

To avoid a forced, loveless marriage to a man she detests, were-Cougar princess Jade Lamarche escapes to the neutral territory of Santa Barbara, California to finally live life on her own terms. But she discovers this is dangerous country where female Cats are rare and highly sought after by dozens of vicious rouges, and Jade finds herself needing the help and protection of a lone Wolf outcast from his own Pack. 

 

A Wolf Pack in a blood feud with her own family’s Cougar Pride. 

 

After failing to prevent his friend’s suicide over an unspeakable crime, were-Wolf prince Luke Bryant breaks from the unjust and restrictive laws and constraints of his Pack and disappears into neutral territory. At last he is free from the suffocating expectations of his people and the forced control of his High Alpha father. 

 

What Luke didn’t count on was befriending a lone female Cougar who requires his help at every turn in this deadly, untamed Wild West. Or the fact that against every natural law known to were-kind, he’s impossibly developing feelings for her. 

 

Deep, taboo feelings. 

 

Because one thing is always certain— A Wolf never falls in love with a Cat. 

 

 

 

Nicole Gabrielle is a low-ranking Sigma wolf that harbors a taboo secret that get her expelled from the Bryant Wolf pack. But right now she has bigger problems – Were-Bear gangsters are blackmailing her family and the only to pay them off is to doctor her Pack records and disguise herself in order to work in the exclusive Timber Ridge community. As the heir apparent, Jake Bryant must abide by one specific Wolf law – he can never marry anyone below his Alpha rank.

 

The second ‘Sons of the Alpha story is a captivating and emotionally gripping read with strong, bold characters that readers can easily relate to. The romance between Jake and Nicki is sweet and sizzles with chemistry but this relationship is quite complicated due to their station in life. This keeps the emotions turbulent throughout the story and readers can’t help but sympathize and be a little enraged at the unfairness of it all of course, Jake’s forced-upon him fiancée adds to the turmoil as well and readers are faced with wishing they slap that person upside the head. 

 

The fast placed plot is full of suspense and excitement as Nicki’s step father get her family in trouble with some gangster were-bears which has Nicki going through an elaborate deception in order to pay them off. The situation is further complicated by Jake’s determination to get to know Nicki and Nicki’s guilt at deceiving everyone. Unexpected twists, betrayals, gambling debts, Arcane Hunters and a conspiracy keeps readers glued to the pages of this exhilarating read.

Addison Carmichael has been a storyteller since she was a young girl.  Even then every tale she imagined had a romantic element that grabbed front and center.  She is absolutely in love with love—giving it, receiving it, then sending it back out into the world.  She believes there is something miraculous and supernatural about true love in every form, and incorporates this magical element into all of her stories.

 

Besides reading and writing (blissful addictions), Addison loves the mountains and ocean, and enjoys hiking, camping, horseback riding and star gazing.  She also bakes, knits and sews, which she never has enough time for.  She attempted mastering several musical instruments, singing, painting, photography, dancing and archery, but always returned to writing and storytelling as the “one true love” of her life.

 

Addison was born and raised in Southern California and has lived and traveled all over the west coast (and the world), now living happily-ever-after with her family in the Pacific Northwest in Snohomish, Washington.

Hell & High Water (THIRDS Book 1)
Hell & High Water (THIRDS Book 1) - Charlie Cochet
I stumbled upon this series a few days ago and it sounded like I would like it, so I immediately got me the first book.
I half expected just to get some men and women in uniform, shapeshifters, a brewing struggle between human and shapeshifters and some romance, a setup that worked well for me in several other books I read so far, but I got more.

Let me elaborate:
The world Charlie Cochet created is one where shapeshifters (aka Therians) were created by accident by humans in the 70ies when biological warfare in the Vietnam War released a virus which later required development of an antidote. This antidote created the shapeshifter mutations.
To cope with that, the government created a Therian government called THIRDS (aka Therian Human Intelligence, Recon, Defence Squadron).
The counterpart for the human population is the HPF (aka Human Police Force).

The story starts with human homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony against his former partner after him witnessing him committing cold blooded murder. This leads to Dex being treated like an outcast and as a traitor of his precinct in the HPF and human race, since the victim was a young Therian.
Eventually he loses his job but he gets sort of promoted to be an agent with the THIRDS because his dad is a sergeant there. Therians clearly don’t have a problem with family members working together.
Agent Sloane Brodie is a jaguar Therian and Dex’s new team leader and partner. He previously lost his partner and rejected all other potential candidates so far. He and the rest of the team fully intended to do the same with Dex because they were all still grieving. All while they had to solve a case of murders of Therians.
But well Dex is Dex …. He somehow managed to find his place in the team and the heart of Sloane and the process of it was somewhat funny as hell. Dex is a dork. A huge ABBA singing dork.
I loved Dex’s banter with Sloane.

Sloane turned, arching an eyebrow at Dex.
“ABBA?”
“What kind of gay man are you?” Dex thrust a finger toward the door.
“Out of my house. Your kind isn’t welcome here.”


“You seem to forget where you are. You’re in Casa de Dex, and in Casa de Dex is much singing.”

“You gotta stop doing that!”
“Doing what?”
“That popping-up-outta-nowhere thing you do.”
Sloane’s brows rose in amusement. “ I use doors like everyone else.”


“Are these,”-Sloane peered at the wrapping paper-“stripping Santas?”
Dex wiggled his brows, “In thongs. Pole dancing.”
“Sometimes I worry about you.” Sloane shook his head, before tearing through the paper.


I also loved the banter between Dex and his team mate Ash. So funny.

Ash rushed forward, and Dex aimed his rifle.
“I swear I will send your hairy ass back to Narnia if you don’t back the fuck up,” Dex warned him, releasing the safety on his rifle.


Oh god, he was about to get a hard-on at work, and the bastard (Sloane) that was the cause of it was loving every moment of it.
Think unsexy thoughts. Think unsexy thoughts.
Ash’s growl echoed through the showers. “What are you two gay boys doing in there?”
Aaand done.

I loved the writing style of this author. This was my first book of hers, but I’m already set on reading the second book in this series.
She created an interesting world and I hope she writes more about the development of the Therians in the future instalments.
The way she developed the team dynamics and their banter was beautiful and just perfect.
I also liked that in this world the main problem was the hate of some humans against the Therians and not skin colour or a different sexuality.
It was also refreshing to read a shifter novel without them acting like sex starved idiots in a frenzy.

But there were also some parts I didn’t like that much.
The mystery came a bit short for my liking and felt rushed in the end because the development of Dex’s and Sloane’s relationship took a huge part of the book. It also was kind of obvious after a certain point. This could have been done better.
I also thought that Dex at the beginning was vastly different from the Dex who started at THIRDS. He went from depressed and frustrated to an always funny and happy dork in no time. However I like the Dex at THIRDS better.

I would recommend this book and I’m going to continue the series not just because of the cliffhanger , but also because I want to know how the relationship between Dex and Sloane continues. I also want to know more about the rest of the team.

[REVIEW] Werecat: The Rearing (Werecat #1) by Andrew J. Peters
The Rearing - Andrew J. Peters

Werecat: The Rearing by Andrew J. Peters
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Read from November 02 to 09, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1
 



From day one Jacks met Benoit, the mysterious stranger was way creepy. Benoit was like a walking time bomb. Yet Jacks was curiously attracted to this imperious man with piercing green eyes that seems to dare him to stick around longer to make sense of this new feelings the guy invoke within him. They both seem to get on well enough and the sex was absolutely invigorating. Just when things are going swell, Jacks found himself on a crossroads situation when his summer vacation days was winding down and he needs to get back to college to finish his final semester. Benoit had given him an ultimatum; stay with him forever or leave and never see each other again. Was the amazing sex worth it? Did he really love Benoit enough to sacrifice his future for a guy he barely knew?

I liked the mysterious atmosphere, the dark undertone surrounding the story and it's non-traditional approach to a shifters story. Apart from that the werecat shifters truly display cat-like qualities in their behavior and personality. Cats are prideful, predatory and territorial. These traits are wonderfully portrayed in the werecat shifter. I also enjoyed the primal and animalistic qualities the story has.

So here comes the not so great parts. I found that the constant flashbacks disrupts the flow and tension of the story. I am don't mind stories that employs flashbacks but excessive usage of it is not a good sign especially when the last thing you ever wanted was for the reader to cool down after building up the story's intensity and pace. It's like fishing, you don't slacken the string once you got em on the hook. I felt like someone just interrupted the best part of a juicy story I was so engrossed on. Not one time but repetitively. Bummer right?

There's also the issue with weak execution of character's motivation which would abruptly yank me out of the story. I felt the need to question why the character would perform irrational or contradictory actions when there isn't sufficient motivation for it. Last but not least, was that some part of the plot defies logic so much so that it's rather jarring.

This story does have it's potential despite the shortcomings. I would still continue with the series since I have already bought book 2 and 3 in advance.

Overall, love the premise and descriptive writing even-though wonky execution fucked it up quite a bit.

or Jacks Dowd, a college senior who feels ungrounded from his family and life in general, an alcohol and sex-infused weekend in Montréal sounds like a pretty good escape. His Spring Break binge takes a detour when he meets Benoit, an admiring drifter with startling green eyes. A hook-up turns into a day, two days, and then a full week in Benoit's hostel, making love and scarfing down take-out food. But at the end of the week, Benoit demands that Jacks make an impossible choice: stay with him forever, or go back to college and never see him again.

8-November-2014:
What a pity. This story could have been great if it wasn't marred by inconsistencies due to weak execution of character's motivation and action and also plots that defies logic.

I will try to elaborate more when I get around to do a review of it. In view that I've already bought book 2 and 3 earlier on, I will be continuing the story.

15-November-2013:
Bought from Kobobooks.com today. Finally!

15-June-2013:
Will need ta remember to get to this one real soon. It has barbed cock sex - actual cat sex. The big roaring cats kind. And I don't know why I am saying this here. :P


Cat fight! Ding! ding!
