Action and romance
Mountain Wolf Protectors Complete Series: Books 1 - 4 - Emilia Hartley

The Mountain Wolf Protectors is a continuing story, divided between four books. Each book does resolve the immediate conflict, but there is a looming threat that continues through each book until the conclusion of the last book. Nova and Amara's story did hold my interest throughout the series and the story is full of action and a building tension with a rival pack. The action scenes are exciting and fast-paced with plenty of detail to draw the reader in. I did wonder why the big bad wasn't dealt with when the opportunity arose, rather than that part of this tale continuing for so long and Amara's stalker, while creepy, was pretty obvious.
Amara and Nova are completely devoted to each other and the author shows this quite well in their fierce determination to defend each other. However, the intimate scenes between them felt a bit rushed and almost gratuitous.
There are a few grammatical errors scattered throughout the books, but not so many as to be a big distraction. Overall, the story is an interesting read and kept me turning pages to see where Nova and Amara's romance would go.

Fortunately, younger me read more books than I do. That nerd was constantly reading.

 

Of course, I understand more of what I do read these days.

My first unsolicited book!

Those that know me, know that I've been going through some stuff in real life, but the book world has been pretty kind to me! I've won several giveaways recently, and today I got a package in the mail and it was a book I wasn't expecting!

 

A while ago, I won a giveaway for Cooking For Ghosts Book 1 in The Secret Spice Cafe trilogy. The author just sent me book 2 out of the blue! It is called Spells & Oregano. I'm loving the titles. I've never been a great cook, but a ghost story with cooking? It sounds really interesting to me.

 

There was no giveaway for book 2, so that would make this my first unsolicited book. That's what you'd call it, right? 

 

She even signed and personalized it, so she did not mail it to me by accident. Thank you very much Patricia V. Davies. I will get to reading and reviewing both books soon in 2018! 

 

I don't have a huge following on any of my social media, so I am honestly not sure why she sent it to me, but it was the kindest gesture. It meant so much to me. It helped brighten my day. I am very thankful!
