Blood Assassin - Alexandra Ivy

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

Fane is a muscled warrior, a guardian Sentinel and now that his decade long protection of Callie is over he’s decided to leave Valhalla and go back to the monastery to train new Sentinels. But Serra, the powerful and sassy psychic, has been in love with him for years and she doesn’t want him to go. Except she can’t change his mind. It’s only when she’s kidnapped that Fane comes to his senses. But is he too late?

 

Action, intrigue, mystery, steaminess, and great characters, this paranormal romance has it all. There are good guys, bad guys, an ambiguous guy, badasses and strong women. Fane is too alpha for my personal tastes, but that’s really my only complaint. This is an excellent story that kept me turning the pages as long as real life didn’t interfere. I’m enjoying this series so far and looking forward to more.

Twisted - Rebecca Zanetti

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

After being rescued from the Kurjans Maggie has lived with the vampires, in the Kayrs compound, but now she needs to spend some time around other wolf shifters in the hopes it will help her with her lost memories. Somehow Alpha wolf Terrent Vilks is tied to her past, but he refuses to say how. He wants her to remember on her own. Shifters can live a very long time, so he has plenty of patience. However, after years, his patience is starting to wear thin. It’s time Maggie remember her promise to him.

 

Another decent read in the Dark Protector series. Even though it’s short, it doesn’t lack in action, mystery and hotness. For once we get a view outside the Kayrs compound and focus on some of the other players in this series. It makes for a nice change, no matter how much I love the Kayrs clan and their mates. I love the reveal at the end, too. lolol I look forward to seeing more of Maggie and Terrent.

Provoked - Rebecca Zanetti

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

War is taking its toll and Jase Kayrs is enduring more than his fair share of the brunt of it. Kane Kayrs and his brothers have not given up hope that they’ll find their youngest brother, but it’s been years since his abduction by the enemy. When they learn of Amber Freebird and her rare ability to affect demons they send Kane to bring her in. The problem is, Amber has no clue that’s she’s other than human.  They must convince the vegan pacifist to fight for them. For Jase. Before all is lost.

 

I didn’t enjoy this story as much as the others in the series. Kane comes off as much more arrogant in his story than the stories that came before and, man, for a genius, he is certainly stupid when it comes to love. Lol There are content errors, mostly with timeline, but other than these issues the story is fast, hot and exciting. Prepare to have your heart wrenched out of your chest when it comes to Jase though. That poor man has really been put through hell.

NetGalley Review
On The Hunt - Rebecca Zanetti,Hannah Jayne,Dianne Duvall,Alexandra Ivy

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

On The Hunt by Alexandra Ivy ~ 3 bites and a nibble

Sentinel Mika Tanner and healer Bailey Morrell were once a couple, but their differences split them up. Years later an incident with a Sentinel in training and dangerous enemy bring them together again. Can they make it work this time around?

 

While I like this story, I didn’t like it as much as the other two I’ve read in the Sentinel series. I just didn’t have a connection with the characters and while I like Bailey, I thought Mika was too overbearing. He comes across as an ass of the first order.

 

Scorpius Rising by Rebecca Zanetti ~ DNF 2 bites for the pandemic part

Microbiologist Nora Medina and her team have been kidnapped by their government in an effort to stem a pandemic. Too bad her ex-husband Deacan McDougall is head of the black ops that are keeping them secure.

 

I’m not a fan of old relationships being rekindled, but the pandemic part made it interesting. Unfortunately, I discovered in Chapter 5 that Deacan had been in the Marines long after the author had called him a soldier multiple times. A Marine is a Marine (and it’s capitalized!) and soldiers are Army. I’m not interested in reading about a Marine being called a soldier, it pisses me off, so I stopped right there.   

 

Phantom Embrace by Dianne Duvall ~ 5 bites

Immortal Guardian Yuri Sokolov can see spirits and he’s been obsessed with one he keeps seeing around. Cat Seddon has been a spirit for a very long time, but there’s something about Yuri that draws her. An immortal and a spirit, what kind of relationship are they going to have? Only one way to find out.

 

I love, love, love the Immortal Guardian series and this short story (#5.5) is a wonderful and unique addition to a really great line up. Even though it’s short it lacks nothing in development and has all of the trademarks I love from the longer books: humor, suspense, steaminess, romance, mystery, awesome action and I mentioned the humor, right? The ending is both heart wrenching and heartwarming. Don’t skip this one when making your way through the series.

 

Stake Out by Hannah Jayne ~ No rating

This series no longer interests me, so I didn’t read it.
