New Release Review! Guardian of Darkness (Darkness #7) Katie Reus!
Guardian of Darkness - Katie Reus



He saw her die in a vision… 

Before five years ago, Gabriel had never met Vega, but he knows how she's going to die. He knows he'll be involved... unless he can make sure they never meet, never cross paths, so that his vision will never come true. So he left his pack behind, joined the Stavros pack and was determined to never let that future play out. To never meet her at all. Fate had other plans—and she walked right into his life when he least expected it. For the last five years he’s avoided Vega whenever possible even while trying to keep an eye on her. But when she gets cagey with her pack and disappears, he has no choice but to follow her. Now, circumstances are forcing them to work together and he’s determined to protect her against any threat. If that means dying for her, he’s more than willing to. But she doesn’t want his protection. If anything, she’s determined to prove she’s stronger than everyone thinks. 

She’s writing her own future… 

Vega isn’t the same moody teenager who came to live with the Stavros pack all those years ago. With college behind her, she’s been recruited by a division of the government’s supernatural Black Ops. Trained and more than ready for her first mission, she doesn’t expect Gabriel to crash her assignment. To save her cover, they pretend to be a couple. But soon lines are blurred and neither can deny the incendiary attraction between them. As they race to stop a man who wants to sell out their people to the highest bidder, they find themselves fighting for a future together. With time running out, she has no choice but to rely on the irresistible male who’s turned her world upside down. Unfortunately, in order to save the woman he loves, Gabriel has to give her up.

New Release Review! Bearly Rescued (A Howls Romance & The Mates of Bear Paw River #3) Everleigh Clark
Bearly Rescued - Everleigh Clark



Isabella Werner – Wolf shifter. Princess. Vegetarian…Prisoner. She’s fighting for her life and her freedom. 

Caleb Alexander – Bear shifter. Running from a haunted past…Undercover guard. His job is simple. Get the information so they can take down the assholes testing on shifters. There’s only one problem. His mate is one of the prisoners, and his bear is about to lose control…again. 

Who rescues who? 



Bearly Rescued gets reader hearts pumping with adrenaline right off the bat as Isabella finds herself in hot water and nowhere to run and the thrills don’t stop there as daring rescues and surprising twists keep readers on their toes. Isabella and Caleb are strong characters with delightfully electric chemistry that has heat sizzling from every page but this romance isn’t a forgone conclusion due to emotional and miscommunication issues that adds depth to the characters and pulls reader into their grasp as they strive for that happily ever after.


This is the 1st book that I have read by Everleigh Clark and I was pleasingly surprised as her world is full of suspense and fascinating characters such as Isabella and Caleb who charmed me from beginning to end and I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.





Bearly Rescued is the 3rd book in the The Mates of Bear Paw River series & a Howls Romance.

ARC Review: At Sixes And Sevens by M.A. Church
At Sixes and Sevens (Fur, Fangs, and Felines Book 4) - M.A. Church

I waited with much anticipation for this book, after the two main characters, Aidric the werecat from Dolf's clowder and one of his betas, and Carter, the alpha werewolf from the Dark Lake Pack, felt the mating bond in the previous book, when he came to the clowder lands to address an issue caused by his nephew with the Veela and his mate - I just had to know how a love story between a dog and a cat would work out. 

There's no insta-love in this series, thankfully. The mating bond, while presenting a strong pull and a desire to pursue that pull, does not mean instant HEA. No, the weres in this series must overcome odds, danger, and potential pain to get their happy ending. This applied to all the couples (and the thruple from book 1), and I'm glad that the author didn't deviate from that point here either.

Obviously, with Carter being an Alpha, Aidric must face the reality of leaving his clowder, giving up his beta position, and moving in with a bunch of werewolves, some of which are none too happy that their Alpha was given a werecat for a mate, and a male to boot. Carter's ex-girlfriend Sabrina, who fancied herself alpha-mate without ever being given that promise by Carter, and her brother Delaney make trouble for Aidric and Carter from the start, sowing distrust and trouble where they can, and things only get worse when during the first full moon run, an attack is carried out on the pack house where the pups are kept. 

I really liked how the author keeps giving her characters some huge odds to overcome, and how the cat and dog characteristics are presented, what with Aidric chasing his own tail, and Carter's wolf close to the surface, making him somewhat gruff on occasion. Their behavior is colored by the animal that lives inside them, and it permeated every action and reaction they had to each other and their surroundings.

Carter also struggles a bit with being given a male mate, which would in his mind prevent him from having children/pups to carry on his Alpha line, plus the additional headache of having many members of his pack resist his mating a werecat. Clearly he hasn't heard of surrogacy or adoption. 

The relationship grows slowly as they start to build on the mating pull, starting to trust each other more every day, and learning about each other. The UST is high, but neither is willing to complete the mating bond until they are certain of their own feelings and each other. When the mating finally comes - oh boy, oh boy, that sure is explosive. 

This was an excellent, strong addition to this series, and I hope there will be more. The book can be read as a standalone, since the events from the previous books are somewhat rehashed by being interwoven into the book's progression, but then you'd miss out on the fun of the first three books, and you wouldn't want that, amirite? So, just read the whole series! 

** I received a free copy of this book from its publisher. A positive review was not promised in return. **

At Sixes and Sevens (Fur, Fangs, and Felines Book 4)
At Sixes and Sevens (Fur, Fangs, and Felines Book 4) - M.A. Church Reviewed for Sinfully.

4.5 stars

Four books in and this series is still going strong. If you want to jump in here, it can be read as a standalone as any history needed is recapped. Aidric has been around in the background as one of the clowder’s betas, but not much else is known about him. Carter is also new to the series, having come to deal with some trouble his nephew caused for the clowder at the end of [b:It Takes Two to Tango|31687504|It Takes Two to Tango (Fur, Fangs, and Felines, #3)|M.A. Church|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1472269411s/31687504.jpg|52361862]. When Aidric and Carter met and realized they were mates, both their worlds were rocked. This book picks up from there.

The storyline differs a bit from the others, which all centered on new mates being brought into the clowder. Here, Aidric has found his mate in Alpha Carter Lovelock of the Dark Lake werewolf pack. Carter’s position in his pack means if the mating goes forward Aidric will have to leave the clowder and his position as beta to live with Carter’s pack. Both trust in the mating call and Aidric agrees to visit Carter and his pack and see what happens before anything final is decided. The two couldn’t be more different from each other and Aidric has his doubts about the mating of a cat and dog (not that the wolves like being called that), but he trusts his goddess has her reasons. Carter, on the other hand, seems to accept Aidric from the start and is determined to do everything he can to make life with his pack comfortable and appealing to Aidric so he will agree to the mating.

It turns out that the outwardly quiet Aidric is pretty feisty and doesn’t take crap from anyone, which is great for trying to find his footing in the werewolf pack. This also makes the sexual dynamics between him and Carter interesting as Aidric is not willing to be completely submissive regardless of Carter’s position and strength. He wants to make sure that Carter understands just what he needs if he’s going to uproot his life and live among the wolves. These two are seriously hot and a lot of fun together, dirty talk and exhibitionist tendencies included.

While Aidric is adjusting to his new place, Carter is not only trying to ensure that Aidric is safe, but is dealing with both family and pack problems. Suffice to say not everyone in the pack is happy with their Alpha’s mate and some are vocal while others are a lot more devious in getting their views across. Carter also gets some devastating family news that results in another big change in his life.

The story had a great pace and I love how it could easily go from sweet and adorable to heartbreaking to action-packed. There is a lot going on and the alternating points of view worked great for getting to know both Aidric and Carter, both separately and as a united force. The two communicate well both as humans and in their shifted forms and I was happy to spend plenty of time with them as cat and wolf. The emotions ran stronger here as well and there were a couple of scenes that had me pretty choked up.

Even though most of it takes place in the pack’s territory, there is time spent with the clowder, and Alpha Dolf’s desire to take them forward from the old ways results in one very interesting issue arising when Aidric’s beta position needs filling. I’m very glad that M.A. Church is still building on this world and that it wasn’t forgotten here.

This was my favorite book of the series so far and I’m thrilled that it seems there will be more books to come. Each book brings a little something new to this paranormal world while building on the ones before. If you’re a fan of shifter stories I would recommend you jump into this series for something fun and a bit different.

Lovely photos of cats in their homes, with often very amusing text, because I prefer to look at pretty pictures in book form. I would happily spend an hour every day looking at pictures of happy animals. oh, wait, I do. Thanks for the Internet!
