BAIT N' WITCH BY ABIGAIL OWEN
Bait N' Witch - Abigail Owen

Loved this addition to the Brimstone Inc series! It may just be favorite of the series so far. Bait N' Witch pulled me out of a bad reading slump and I'm so grateful for it. I was up till 3am finishing this one, I read it all in one sitting. The characters were interesting and fun and the romance was perfectly paced with the length of the book. Though these are more novellas than full length Owen always manages to make them feel like they are full length in the best way. It's complete and enriches the whole world created each step of the way. I also love that we get peeks at the previous characters we've come to love.

 

Rowan was fabulous! I loved the nanny plot line and her relationship with the triplets. It was just as enjoyable to me as the blossoming romance between Rowan and Grey. I can't wait to see what happens next!

 

I received an arc of this book from Entangled: Amara via Netgalley and this is my honest review.

Review: Centurion (Galactic Gladiators; House of Rone #3) by Anna Hackett
Centurion - Anna Hackett

 Centurion
 Galactic Gladiators; House of Rone #3
 Anna Hackett
 Science Fiction Romance
 October 20, 2019
 eBook
 Bought

 

Rescued from her alien captors, the only person who makes her feel safe is a cold, emotionless cyborg.

 

Abducted from her exploration ship, paramedic Sage McAlister has spent months locked in cells and labs belonging to the Edull. Rescued by the cool, powerful cyborgs of the House of Rone, she finds herself among fellow human survivors on the desert world of Carthago. But despite being free, Sage feels cold inside and is struggling to cope. The only person she feels safe with—who she doesn’t feel the need to pretend with—is a deadly cyborg who feels nothing.

 

Forced into a military cyborg program as a teen, all Acton Vonn remembers of his past are violent missions and the cybernetic enhancements forced on him before he broke free. His emotions have been dampened to nothing for decades and he’s fine with that. It makes him an efficient member of the House of Rone. Yet the more time he spends with the copper-haired woman he helped rescue from the Edull, the more unfamiliar, strange, and perplexing things he starts to feel.

 

When a tip reveals that more humans are being held captive at a mysterious desert lake, Sage will stop at nothing to help rescue her crewmates. As she is drawn closer to Acton, she worries about risking her heart. Being with Sage breaks down barriers inside Acton and he struggles with the emotions he doesn’t want to feel. But deep in Carthago’s dangerous deserts, with the Edull hunting them, Sage and Acton will have to risk it all: their lives, their hearts, their souls.

 

Includes a preview of Edge of Eon (Eon Warriors #1).

Centurion is book three in the Galactic Gladiators: House of Rone series by Anna Hackett. I love Hackett. She is an amazing science fiction romance author. 

 

Acton never understood why his fellow cyborgs kept falling for their Earth women, but when he helps rescue Sage, his world implodes. Acton is the most machine like of the House of Rone Gladiators, but everything changes when Sage moves in.

 

Sage was torn from her solar system and sold to the Edull. She was their prisoner and knows too well the danger they pose with their unspeakable robots. Now that she’s free she’s determined to find and save her fellow prisoners, but first she has to show the tasty looking Acton how good emotions can be. 

 

I loved Acton and Sage’s story. They started out as friends, but quickly realized their attraction to each other. Acton was so sweet in how he helped Sage deal with find her place in this new world and the trauma that happened to her. On the other side Sage helped Acton find his feelings. I was delighted with their budding romance and that they both helped each other to heal and find love. 

 

Besides the healing and romance we are treated to many action-battle scenes. There is no shortage of trouble from the Edull as the hunt goes on to find the Edulls hidden city and free the humans. 

 

Centurion is another fabulous, entertaining, and exciting read. I can’t wait to get the next story in the House of Rone series.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

review SPOILER ALERT! 2020-05-19 06:17
Book review: unhoneymooners Christina Lauren
The Unhoneymooners - Christina Lauren

May 15-18

Olive is always unlucky: in her career, in love, in…well, everything. Her identical twin sister Ami, on the other hand, is probably the luckiest person in the world. Her meet-cute with her fiancé is something out of a romantic comedy (gag) and she’s managed to finance her entire wedding by winning a series of Internet contests (double gag). Worst of all, she’s forcing Olive to spend the day with her sworn enemy, Ethan, who just happens to be the best man.

Olive braces herself to get through 24 hours of wedding hell before she can return to her comfortable, unlucky life. But when the entire wedding party gets food poisoning from eating bad shellfish, the only people who aren’t affected are Olive and Ethan. And now there’s an all-expenses-paid honeymoon in Hawaii up for grabs.

Putting their mutual hatred aside for the sake of a free vacation, Olive and Ethan head for paradise, determined to avoid each other at all costs. But when Olive runs into her future boss, the little white lie she tells him is suddenly at risk to become a whole lot bigger. She and Ethan now have to pretend to be loving newlyweds, and her luck seems worse than ever. But the weird thing is that she doesn’t mind playing pretend. In fact, she feels kind of... lucky

Review : I really loved this book it was cute and funny and I loved the characters. This is about olive she's a twin and her sister is getting married and olive is happy for her but she's annoyed she has to deal with Ethan Dane's older brother. But the reception doesn't go to well when everyone but Ethan and olive get some kind of shellfish poisoning and Ethan and olive have to take their honeymoon. Ethan and olive don't get along she thinks it has to do with him judging her eating cheese curds . They have to pretend to be married on this honeymoon and then olive runs into her new boss and Ethan and olive have dinner with her new boss and his wife . Then they run into Ethan ex girlfriend and her fiance very awkward. Olive starts enjoying Ethans company and hes not what she thought he was . Ethan ends up drinking a lot and ends up kissing olive he tells her he likes her and apparently Dane told Ethan when they first met not to bother with olive . Ethan and olive hook up and then they end up start dating but the problem is ethan let it be clear he never planned those trips Dane did and he was cheating on ami . When they get back home olive tells her boss the truth and he let's her go and then Dane hits on her and Ethan doesn't believe her and either does ami when olive tells her and then Ethan breaks up with her . Ami finds texts on Dane phone . Ami invites all the girls Dane has been cheating on her and Ethan shows up and Ethan is trying to get her back and he shows up at the restaurant she's working at and they get back together. Two years later they are back at Maui with her sister and her new boyfriend and Ethan plans on proposing. And he does kinda and it was so sweet so them .
Quotes:“I can appreciate my body in a bikini and still want to set fire to the patriarchy.”

 

the only coherent thought that comes to mind is how insulting it is that eyelashes like his were wasted on Satan’s Errand Boy”

 

Rumor has it your dad brought her flowers and she pulled off every petal and used them to spell PUTA in the snow.”

 

Ethan Thomas is doing something weird to my emotions.”

 

knew he was a book lover, but to be the same kind of book lover I am? It makes my insides melt.”

Review: Defender (Galactic Gladiators; House of Rone #2) by Anna Hackett
Defender - Anna Hackett

 Defender
 Galactic Gladiators; House of Rone #2
 Anna Hackett
 Science Fiction Romance - Aliens
 August 18, 2019
 eBook
 246
 Kindle Unlimited

 

Rescued from alien slavers, the only place she feels safe is in the brawny arms of a big, gruff cyborg.

 

Astrophysicist Dr. Jayna Lennox's life imploded the day her ship was attacked by aliens. Through months of captivity, she's survived by shutting down and not feeling. Then she's freed by the House of Rone cyborgs and finds herself in the arms of huge, tough Mace. Struggling to heal, Mace is the only thing that makes her feel safe. The only person who makes her feel like she isn't broken. But there are more of her crew members imprisoned in Carthago's desert, and Jayna will have to delve into her darkest memories to help save them.

 

Born to fight and bred for rage, Mace barely survived his gang-ridden homeworld. Thanks to Imperator Magnus Rone, he's found a place at the House of Rone. Unlike the other cyborgs, he feels, but only anger and annoyance. When a small, wounded human woman works her way under his skin, Mace finds himself feeling things he's never felt before...along with a powerful need to keep her safe.

 

Jayna vows to help find her fellow humans, even if it means revisiting her nightmares and being part of a dangerous mission into the desert. But as the passion between her and Mace explodes, she finds herself with two battles on her hands: the battle to free the humans from their captors, and the war to win Mace's scarred heart.

Includes a preview of Edge of Eon (Eon Warriors #1)

Defender is book two in the Galactic Gladiators; House of Rone series by Anna Hackett.

 

This is another amazing story in the series. Hackett delivers another action-packed and fast-paced read. In Sentinel, book 1, we rescued another human women, Jayna, and in Defender we get to see her and Mace’s romance.

 

Mace can’t stop thinking about Jayna after rescuing her. Jayna is broken. She’s been beaten down, but she’s not broken. Mace is so sweet with Jayna. He pushes her to come out of her shell. Their romance is so sweet and endearing. I loved seeing how Jayna changes Mace and vis versa.

 

As is the way, we get new information on the missing humans and the hunt for Edull City is on.

 

Defender is engaging and so much fun! The world keeps expanding and more characters are introduced. Their is no shortage of action and romance.

 

Rated: 4 Stars
