New Release Review! Jilly’s Wyked Fate (Ashland Pride #7) R.E. Butler!
Jilly's Wyked Fate - R.E. Butler

 

 

Mountain lion shifter, Jilly Fallon, has been waiting for nearly three years to turn twenty-one, so she can finally – finally! – officially mate Wyked and Fate Myers, the twin brothers who have stolen her heart. When a panther is injured at a clan gathering and Jilly can’t help, the clan healer takes her to visit a fae healer so she can learn what she needs. During the second visit to see the fae, they find themselves protecting a young girl with pink and blue wings, and a secret that got her family killed. 

Wyked and Fate Myers feel like the last three years have taken an eternity. Now that she’s finally theirs, they’re ready to start a family with their beloved mountain lion. During the last full moon before their clan begins to travel, an old enemy resurfaces, intent on making Jilly suffer for her betrayal. When Wyked and Fate are gravely injured, will she lose them both? 

Contains M/F/M interaction and a happily ever after worth waiting for. 

 

 

I have been waiting impatiently to read Jilly’s story as I am sure Jilly was waiting impatiently for the day of mating to finally take place and I have to tell you that it was well worth the wait. Jilly, Wyked and Fate are strong, charismatic characters that have fascinated me since they met each other. And now, well their passion had each and every page smoldering with some intense heat and well their mating was anything but boring as they sure had lots of emotional issues and other exciting events taking place, so there was never a dull moment anywhere in this book. The Ashland Pride is always fascinating and have easily captured my heart and continue to do so even as it grows, the stories are full of suspense and excitement as well as the wonderful romances that spark such spectacular multiple partner relationships.

 

R.E. Butler continues to bring readers stories full of passion and enjoyment by describing her worlds and characters with vivid detail that brings them to life and makes it so easy to pretend to be part of the story as it unfolds. Which of course, is how I became and continue to be so totally caught up in the Pride and their adventures and I don’t think that the author could have made Jilly’s Wyked Fate any better as she also introduced new characters and given us hints to future stories which I am certainly looking forward to.

 

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is the 7th book in the Ashland Pride series.

 

The 8th book - Embracing Ehrin will be available June 4, 2018.

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is available in ebook at:

Amazon   iBooks   B&N   Kobo   Amazon UK

Historical Romance
The Lady Seals Her Fate (The Langley Sisters Book 5) - Wendy Vella

The Lady Seals Her Fate by Wendy Vella is a fast-paced historical romance.  This is a fairly short read, perfect for those historical romance fans with limited reading time.  Ms. Vella has penned a well-written book.  Hannah's father increased her dowry in hopes she'd have more suitors.  Instead, she is chased by men for her dowry.  Alex is pulled into her plan to avoid being married off.  Their story is packed with amazing characters, action, suspense, humor, drama and sexy bits.  I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by Wendy Vella.  The Lady Seals Her Fate is book 5 of The Langley Sisters Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Well imagined, but poorly written
A Disturbance Of Fate - Mitchell J. Freedman

In this novel, Mitchell Freedman posits an interesting “what-if” scenario that explores what might have happened if Robert Kennedy had survived Sirhan Sirhan’s assassination attempt and then gone on to win the presidency in 1968.  From this he launches into a comprehensive account of domestic and international events as they would unfold in response to the policies of President “Bob” Kennedy and his successors, envisioning a range of scenarios that are backed by an impressive amount of research and an imaginative consideration of the consequences.

 

Yet in spite of the obvious thought and creativity that underlays this book, I found it to be a frustrating read.  Part of it is in the policies he envisions Kennedy pursuing, all of which are borne out of the 30-plus years of hindsight that Freedman has the luxury of employing; rarely do Kennedy and his people take a wrong step or embrace a bad idea.  This allows Freedman to create a liberal’s fantasy of how the last third of the 20th century could have unfolded, all of which strains credulity as the novel wears on.

 

Even more annoying, though, is Freedman’s voice as an author.  Throughout the book it seems that he can’t decide if he is writing a novel of alternative history, an alternate-history textbook, or a paper speculating how history might have developed differently.  Digressions explaining how events developed in “our timeline” or “RFK’s timeline” jar when they interrupt the more clearly novelistic sections of the text.  Freedman also cannot even settle on the voices of his characters, as he attempts to replicate the regional accents of Lyndon Johnson, Richard Daley and other figures while ignoring Kennedy’s pronounced Boston Irish accent.

 

These flaws detract from the overall enjoyment of the book.  While Freedman has clearly invested a lot of time and thought into constructing his alternate America, his writing fails to measure up to the task of turning it into an engaging read.  Readers who fantasize about how much better America would have been under an RFK presidency will find much to comfort them in its pages, but anyone seeking a good read would do better to turn elsewhere.

A Cowboy's Fate By: Gini Rifkin
A Cowboy's Fate - Gini Rifkin

A Cowboy's Fate is a short read or in my case listen. I listened the the Audiobook. Gini Rifkin packed a lot in this short 3 hours audiobook. It s the tale of Britania Rule and Cody James. There are a couple of sex scenes and a few curse words. A few places the book felt a little rushed btu was still a good read. 

 

Britania was basically kicked out of England when she read tarot cards for a man she met. Not knowing it was a Royal family member. She went to the police with the information she learned for the reading. This offended the Royal family and she was given options. She does a taort card reading for herelf and basically the cards tell her to go to America and she does. When Britania arrives she has changed her whole persona. She is playing off being a high borne lady. She heads to Leadville Colorado to open her own parlor of spiritual enlightenment.

 

Britana hires Cody to be her guide along the way.  Britania does a tarot card reading for Cody which says he will fall in love. There is instant sparks between the 2 of them. They choose to ignore those sparks, but the cards have spoken. 

 

Once they arrive in Leadville Cody's past comes back to haunt him. They both have to survive the skeleton in the closet now. 

 

The audiobook was narrated by Richard L. Walton. I really enjoyed his gravely with a hint of a lisp voice. I could listen to him all day. He done an amazing job with the voices for the characters as well as adding emotion to each sentence. 

 

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Switch of Fate 1 - Lisa Ladew,Grace Quil... Switch of Fate 1 - Lisa Ladew,Grace Quillen

Intense, suspenseful and mysterious are just a few ways to describe this book, there is also the magical element. Lots of interesting and mythological events happening as this plot progresses, as well as the building attraction between the characters. Some very sizzling hot scenes that its a wonder the pages don't combust on their own, in other words plenty for everyone to enjoy. The pace is steady and the flow really good throughout. I really loved the whole mix of contrasting subjects form the ancient to the modern, I could believe this could happen. This is wondrous and spiritual a real treat to read, even the fantastical kept me enthralled.
