ARC Review Copy

 

The descendant of two almighty Gods and a Guardian of Earth, Eirykr “Rykr” is born of immense power. Yet, no amount of strength or skill can save him from the curse that tore him away from his first and only love. Turned into a shadowy assassin, he wields the demons bound to his soul with the ruthlessness of a blade. For nearly a decade, he’s searched for the key to free himself, all the while watching over and dangerously craving the beautiful mate who believes she’s driven him away.

 

Lucy is a born protector, a trait of her Guardian lineage. When her greatest gift was torn from her, leaving a gaping hole in her soul, she refuses to allow a young Rykr, her known mate, to suffer the same dire consequences. Her fear forces her to make a haunting decision and with a grave threat, she crushes him, demanding they part for a decade. Yet, as the years pass she can feel him watching her from the shadows, conjuring wild fantasies that make her ache for him to finally end their torment.

 

As time ticks toward the decade mark, dark forces rush to descend. Will Rykr’s secret and relentless need to protect Lucy condemn them to a hopeless destiny of constant craving? Or will Lucy bind them for all eternity, no matter the violent threat to her very soul?

 

Warning: This title contains dirty talk, bad language and erotically charged scenes meant to scorch your eReader.

The children of the Guardians are all grown up….
What new threats await them as they find their true mates…

 

Ever since the end of The Guardians of the Realms series and the announcement that Ms. Jay planned to write a spin-off series which featured the children from those matings. I’ve been ecstatic and waiting eagerly.

 

I’ve been a fan of Ms. Jay’s from the begging when she popped on the scene with her very fist book Ecstasy Unbound and each installment then after in The Guardians of the Realms series. This spin-off carries all the wonderful things that capture me. The writing is full of passion, romance, and action. The plot is intriguing, the mythology is cool, and our couples set the sheets on fire.

 

This couple has a beautiful romance. Lucy and Ryker are two of the children of the Guardians and they discovered at a young age that they are mates. Too young to bond, but they still ended up having a great friendship until they where pulled apart. I felt for both Lucy and Ryker. The loneliness of their separation and then the danger that has claimed Ryker.

 

I completely adored return to the Guardian world, seeing old favorites, and meeting the children. I love how each character is distinct with their own unique powers and gifts. I liked that we get to see how the human world is coping with the realization that they where never alone. That Gods, powerful beings, and monsters do exist.

 

This spin-off can be read on it’s own and Ms. Jay gives enough background to pull you in and take you away, but personally I’d recommend reading The Guardians of the Realms series first and meeting the parents and friends. Though it’s not necessary.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Review: Bear to Love (Kodiak Den #3) by Amy Lamont
Bear to Love: Kodiak Den #3 (Alaskan Den Men Book 8) - Amy Lamont

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures 

 

Bear to Love

Kodiak Den #3

Erotica Paranormal Romance - Menage
January 18th 2017
eBook

Free

 

Softhearted and rebellious bear shifter Macy Black can’t stand to see any creature, man or beast, in pain. So when her big brother’s two best friends return home from deployment with battle scars that go way beyond skin deep, she makes it her mission to help them heal. But when her desire to help turns to flat out desire, she starts to question everything she thought she knew about love.

 

Former Special Forces soldiers Nash Dixon and Gage Stone barely made it out of their last mission alive. The only way the two werebears are able to deal with the aftermath is by sticking close together. They both fear the bond they forged in battle may be the one thing that keeps them from finding their true mates. But when their best friend’s little sister forces her way between them, they might find that's exactly where she belongs.

 

Warning: This story contains possessive, alpha bear shifters and a big helping of heart melting romance. Just like Nash, Gage, and Macy, the Kodiak Den stories are better together, but each one can be read as a standalone.

 

Goodreads

Bear to Love was a quick, sexy, and emotional read. It can be read as a standalone.

 

Gage and Nash both bear shifters survived hell. They are toured with PTSD and a need to be near each other all the time.

 

Macy is an animal rescuer and bear shifter. She grew up with Gage and Nash and never expected her inner bear to come roaring out when she tries to help her brother’s best friends.

 

I really liked the slow burn, the issues they all have to go through and how it all worked out. The author had me crying at several scenes and fanning myself at others. Even with it being an insta-attraction and recognition of mates, the three of them first develop a relationship.

 

I had a delightful time reading this sexy shifter book. It was interesting and the characters are great. I will be checking out more in the series.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Review: Elizabeth’s Wolf (Breeds #3) by Lora Leigh
Elizabeth's Wolf - Lora Leigh
Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures
 
Elizabeth's Wolf 

 Breeds #3  
 Lora Leigh  
 Erotic Paranormal Romance - Adult 18+

 June 3rd 2005  
 eBook/Paperback

She brought him back from death and made him live again.

 

Dash thought himself alone, a soldier, a fighting machine and no more.

 

Elizabeth made him realize he was a man.

 

Danger surrounds the woman his soul marked as his mate, death and blood and a treachery that goes beyond even his worst nightmares. But he will protect her and what she claims as her own. He was created to kill, trained to do it efficiently, and only a man bound to her, heart and soul, will have the strength to save Elizabeth and her prized possession.

 

He is a lone wolf. A man alone. No pack, no family, no one to call his own until one single, innocent letter awoke Elizabeth's wolf. 

 

 

 

Elizabeth’s Wolf is one of my favorites in the Breeds series. It’s because it has a wounded soldier and a little girl. I feel in love with Dash the first moment he is featured and of course Cassie and her mother.

 

I love how the story starts, love Cassie our little girl who has a little fairy that guides her to write to this soldier who has no family, no friends, no one to write too him. It brings home the sacrifices our men and women make even toughs who don’t have someone waiting back home for them.

 

Dash is a wolf breed, one that’s genetics are recessed, so it makes it easy for him to hide in the world. Not all the breeds can hide, but many have found a way and a few are now coming out to the world. It’s the beginning of that coming out and the world is either accepting them or not.

 

Deep down Dash’s wolf even though Dash himself doesn’t understand knows that he must find and protect this little girl and her mother. Elizabeth did what any mother who loves her child would do. She protected her little girl and knows that she is at an end and needs help, but doesn’t have hope anymore. She’s been burned one to many times and has watched good people die, so she doesn’t trust. These two where great together. Their are several surprises along the way and once they find out what Cassie is things start to fall into place. It’s an emotional upheaval for all.

 

One of my favorite lines from Elizabeth’s Wolf is: “Let me show you have a Breed male makes a meal out of his mate.” Oh that’s dame hot!

 

I’ve enjoyed several of the books in the Breeds series. Some where better then others. Some can be read as standalone while others follow a story plot from one book to the next. The Breeds themselves are an interesting species and they don’t fully understand their race yet, so the finding mates and living life is a journey.

 

Rated: 5 Stars

Review: Too Hot to Touch (Breeds #17, #19, #23) by Lora Leigh

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Rule Breaker, Stygian’s Honor, and Lawe’s Justice presents three novellas from the “no-holds-barred”* world of the Breeds—collected here for the first time.

 

A Christmas Kiss
Jessica Raines would never willingly betray the people she believes in. But she did expose Breed secrets, and now someone wants her dead. Her protection is Wolf Breed Hawke Esteban—and he’s got the mating urge for a woman on the run.

 

Christmas Heat
Jaguar Breed Noble Chavin’s new role: bodyguard to Haley McQuire, a woman at risk after discovering a conspiracy against the Breed community. For Noble, being this close to Haley has brought out the mating heat, and she’s more than willing to stoke it.

 

Primal Kiss
Betrayed Kita Engalls, drawn into shady activities involving the Breeds, can trust only Lion Breed Creed Raines to help. But their mating passion reveals Kita’s fear that Creed may be guilty of the greatest betrayal of all.

I enjoyed these three very hot and steamy Breed Novellas. I previously read them, but it was a long time ago. It was nice to re-read the novellas and experience the Breed magic again. I will say if you have not read the series you may not understand or find these novellas entertaining. Fan’s will enjoy. The series is very juicy, steamy, and sensual, so be prepared for hot sex.

 

Christmas Heat – Rated: 4 Stars

 

Originally featured in ‘The Magical Christmas Cat‘ anthology.

 

This one takes place near Sanctuary.

 

We have Haley a human librarian and Noble a breed. They have been friends, but both feel more for the other, yet they don’t show it. When Haley’s life is endangered Noble is going to protect her and confront his feelings.

 

It was a sweet, sexy, hot and entertaining Christmas Novella. I enjoyed watching these two finally come together after denying their feelings for eachother.

 

 

A Christmas Kiss – Rated: 4 Stars

 

Originally featured in ‘Hot for the Holidays‘ anthology.

 

This one takes place at Haven.

 

We have Jessica a human who betrayed the breeds, but not because she wanted too. Her father concocted a drug that forced her to do this and she didn’t know. She has lost so much.

 

Hawke a Breed and Jessica’s mate. He’s known for almost 2 years that he’s her mate, but he had to stay way to prove her innocence and to protect her from the mating heat. He knows if he can’t tell her soon that he will lose her for good.

 

This one was heartbreaking. I felt for Jessica and her loneliness and everything she lost. She’s drifting. Besides these two working out their issues, we have someone on the inside trying to destroy the Breeds.

 

It was sexy and hot. I enjoyed seeing this couple celebrate their first Christmas together and with the other Breeds at Haven.

 

 

Primal Kiss – Rated: 3.5 Stars

 

Originally featured in ‘Primal‘ anthology.

 

This one takes place at Sanctuary.

 

We have Kita a human and air to a pharmaceutical company that use to help the Council that hurt Breeds. Then we have Creed a wolf Breed who does covert undercover work. He’s been hired by Mr. Engall’s, Kita’s father, to protect his daughter.

 

Everyone wants Kita: the Breeds, the Council, and the Human groups all because they think they can get her father to give them information on the Breeds that has been hidden away. This story gives you information pertaining to the Phylip Brandenmore storyline. There’s much more going on then Kita or Creed know about.

 

It was a hot and sexy novella. Very quick and good to have a storyline wrapped up.

Review: MC Bear My Baby (Beartooth Brotherhood MC #2) by Bella Love-Wins
MC Bear my Baby - Bella Love-Wins

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

MC Bear My Baby 

 Beartooth Brotherhood MC #2  
 Bella Love-Wins  
 Paranormal Romance  
 May 17th 2016  
 eBook  
 184  
 Free  
 

 

They wanted an escape. They got a baby.  


Tate Roman is a walking contradiction. He's a badass, tech savvy bear shifter. A mohawk-wearing, trouble-making, woman-claiming member of the Beartooth Brotherhood MC who lives to protect his bear shifter MC family. He's damaged, violent and vicious, kinky and twisted, but when he's assigned to protect Molly Davenport, one of his casual playmates, everything changes. 

 

Molly Davenport is the sassy, sexy and fearless nurse in training. She's tough on the outside, tougher on the inside, and has a spicy role-playing bedside manner. 

Tate swore to protect her, yet the tables can turn. Together they create an explosive romance. Yet the last thing they thought they wanted was the one thing they both craved. 

 

Author's Note. 
- MC Bear My Baby is a full-length standalone bear shifter romance with a happy ever after ending and no cliffhanger. 
- This is book 2 of the Beartooth Brotherhood series, where each book covers a different romantic couple and can be read in any order. 
Content Warning: Intended for 18+ readers. Explicit love scenes, coarse language, and some fight scenes characteristic of MC romance.

MC Bear My Baby is book two in the Beartooth Brotherhood MC by Bella Love-Wins. This title can be rad as a standalone. I have not read this author before and found myself enjoying MC Bear My Baby. We get a verity of shifters and immortals.

 

The Beartooth Brotherhood MC has turned over a new leaf and are now on the up and up doing security work and jobs. This doesn’t mean they arent’ still the badass bickers.

 

Molly has an interesting background. She’s tough and wants what she wants.

 

Tate is a man whore and likes his kink. He bangs his friends mother. Yuk!! Not much else to say except he does have some issues, but once you get to know him he’s kinda cuddle and he cares.

 

Molly and Tate have been fooling around for over six months, no relationship, just sex. It’s a mutual understanding until Molly’s ex-boyfriend starts to stalk her.

 

I wasn’t sure what to make of this story at the beginning. Tate’s a man whore and I kept wondering if he slept with Molly without protection then who else did he do that with or was it because subconsciously his bear new something and so he conveniently forgets the protection with her? As the story progress something’s come to light and life takes a turn. I found myself enjoy this story more than I thought and Tate started to grow on me. There were fun conversations and scenes as well as few surprises and twists. The ending was sweet.

 

I don’t know if I’ll read more in this series, but it was enjoyable and had several interesting concepts, like this mysterious immortal who can turn humans into shifters, and what made the Beartooth Brotherhood MC change their ways. 

 

Rated: 3 Stars
