Book Review for Dark Wolf Running Bloodrunners Book 5 By Rhyannon Byrd
 
Dark Wolf Running
Bloodrunners Book 5
By: Rhyannon Byrd
 
 
 
  5 stars
Reviewed by:Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
Format:Kindle
Published: Harlequin Nocturne
 Gene: Paranormal Romance 
 

Blurb
 
In Rhyannon Byrd's latest Bloodrunners
 
 romance, passion and secrets collide and
 
 only their love will save two werewolves
 
 and their pack. 

With his sharp gaze locked on the most
 
 magnificent female he'd ever seen, Wyatt
 
 Pallaton did his best to hold himself back
 
. Of course, Elise Drake was hardly just
 
 any female. Fiery and cool, strong, yet at
 
 the same time achingly vulnerable, she'd
 
 turned his entire world on its head. 

No matter how bloody difficult it proved
 
 to be, he was done letting her pretend he
 
 didn't even exist. Done with letting her
 
 fight her own battles. Done driving
 
 himself slowly into this maddening state
 
 of frustrated desire. One way or another,
 
 things were about to change. 

Come hell or high water, she was done
 
 running…



Kindle
 
Paperback
Wow ! What a page turner from beginning to end could not put my book down.I love the series so much I purchased the rest of the series to read right after I finished reading this title.I have read Rhyannon Byrd books over the years and really enjoyed them so I was glad to see a new title from her to read.I love reading paranormal books and love reading about those hunky shape-shifters so this was the perfect romance novel for me to indulge in .

What a wonderful plot and story of romance surrounded by danger and lots of intrigue.Just love the two main characters Elise and Wyatt both amazing characters.

Elise she was a firecracker for sure.She was a tough outspoken women who seemed to be tough as nails.She never took no for and answer.She was determined and had nerves of steel.Considering her job description you would never have thought she had this kind of personality.

Elise set out to find her missing sister.She packed up her life to go on the road to find her .She was her one focus in her life.In finding her sister she is now mixed up in a plot of human trafficking by and opposing shape shifter clan.Having no clue of what she has stumbled upon she is rescued by Wyatt Pallaton a shape-shifter with the blood of royalty.

Wyatt tried to warn Elise to move on from there very first meeting but she was having none of it.The tall dark mesmerizing man wasn't scaring her off.After reading the scene of there first meeting I new this couple would be drawn to to each other and the sparks would fly between this couple.I smiled and chuckled through the whole scene of the two of them head to toe with each other just picturing this tiny little women with the giant of a man.(lol)

 Wyatt had to be my favorite character.He was one of those love-able characters with a big heart protective of those he loved and still protective of those he didn't. I did feel sorry for him at times because his pack members kept him at a bit of a distant his blood line was one of those reasons as it was the purest of there kind. He was also being judged for his fathers sins and not his own and it really isn't fair as he is nothing like the monster his father was .He was not only his father  but, was there pack leader to.There is a sadness to him.Even though he was well liked by the rogue hunters and respected by others you felt his loneliness and despair. Elsie was his one bright light in it all his sunshine his mate but, not trusting his own  feelings toward Elise he pushes her away then pulls her in pushes her away again like a tug of war.You understand though he is afraid of hurting her but , I think its more he thinks he was undeserving of her love.If was not half  in love with Wyatt's character from the  very beginning I was  head over heels after he risked his life to save Elsie's and what he did to care for afterward made me tumble .Sigh....

This was such a great story.So much going on all the time.Secrets coming to life .Learning the real secrets of her sister's kidnapping.The journey of Wyatt and Elsie falling in love .The sisters betrayal and not seeing a happily ever after in this foreseeable future for this couple. An lets not forget the other amazing characters we were getting to know and learn about.So looking forward to reading their stories.This story had everything  to make it an amazing and intriguing story to keep you turning the pages into the wee hours of the morning.

Looking forward to the next installment and the past installments already loaded on my kindle.Recommended to all the paranormal romance junkies like me.

Happy Reading All !

Caught Running by Madeleine Urban, Abigail Roux 3.5 Star Review!
Caught Running - Madeleine Urban,Abigail Roux,Jeff Gelder

Ten years after graduation, Jake "the jock" Campbell and Brandon "the nerd" Bartlett are teaching at their old high school and still living in separate worlds. When Brandon is thrown into a coaching job on Jake's baseball team, they find themselves learning more about each other than they'd ever expected. High school is all about image – even for the teachers. Brandon and Jake have to get past their preconceived notions to find the friendship needed to work together. And somewhere along the way, they discover that perceptions can always change for the better.

 

Review

 

I picked this book up because I have seen it everywhere on Favorite Male Male Romance books. 

I can see why its is so popular. Parts of the love story and topics are really great and thoughtful but some of the basics of the writing and the romance genre aspects are rough. 

The heroes have that opposites attract mojo going on. I love that Brandon and Jake are both teachers and love their work with students. The slow burn of the romantic connections is well done and the relationship is sweet. However, we get a HFN and I wanted more really.

The book takes a thoughtful look at high school cliques and politics at the teacher and student levels. The thinking about coaching and also extra work of tutoring is compelling as is the hard work of student be they athletes or academic high achievers. 

The writers also look at the damage high school and college athletics do to the body and we venture into pain pill addiction but the hard work recovery is left for after the book ends and that was disappointing. 

Not so good: 
Some of the side characters are interesting but all the women are not drawn with complexity. The changing of pov are pretty awful and hard to track who is thinking and the third person subjective point of view is.... not working.

So, I like a lot of it but think the over book hints at these writers desire to write something romantic but not romance and in more of a long running series which is what happens later.

Running to You By Andrew Grey 99 cents!!
Running to You - Andrew Grey,Jack Richmond

Home, love, and possibilities he never imagined are waiting for Billy Joe to claim them. But first he needs to escape the horrors of his past.

A twisted act of cruelty and prejudice drives Billy Joe from his Mississippi home, and he makes it as far as Pennsylvania—where his car breaks down just as the year’s first snowstorm blows in. Fortunately, Carlos is there to lend a hand.

Carlos is no stranger to hardship. His family rejected him for being gay, but with determination, he put himself through school and became a librarian. Carlos sees the same willpower in Billy, and he wants to help Billy and his son succeed in a new life that is very different from the one they left behind. With his support, they start to adjust, and before long, both men want more than encouragement from each other. They want the chance for a future together, but their families have other ideas… and Billy’s will stop at nothing to get what they want.

Let Your Mind Run
Let Your Mind Run - Michelle Hamilton,Deena Kastor

To my fellow runners:  Have you ever had this experience--where you are running (race or training run) and find your mind filled with negative self-talk?

 

Why am I so slow?

Why did I register for this race?  I can't DO this!

I can't keep up with [other runner]!  What's WRONG with me?!?!?

No, not a HILL!  This will kill my pace!

 

Chances are, if you run, you have first-hand knowledge of the destructive potential (and pervasiveness) of thought patterns like these.  What if you could turn around the way you think, so your thoughts can boost your performance and overall fitness?  Whether this is something you've personally mastered or something you aspire to, I believe you will find value in this Deena Kastor book.

 

Deena Kastor started running as a middle-schooler, taking to the sport after her parents had encouraged her to try a variety of activities.  Soon she was winning races, and those wins carried through into high school.  In those early days, pure talent was fueling the victories.  Races were for running hard, and practices were for having fun.  When the wins became harder to come by, that was modified to hard running for races AND practices.

 

The high-school running led to a scholarship to university in Arkansas, but by the time she graduated, running had lost its luster.  Deena was on the verge of pursuing a career as a baker when a friend encouraged her to train with a coach in California and give professional running a try.  A phone call with the coach convinced her to move to his town.  They clicked, and part of Deena's journey as a runner involved learning to use positive thinking to support her training and racing.  She cites many of the sources she consulted, which readers might be interested in checking out on their own.

 

Along the way, she married Andrew Kastor, had a baby girl named Piper, steadily progressed and set records in a variety of distances, from 5k through marathon, and eventually formed her own racing team--benefiting from her and Andrew's knowledge.

 

This book is relevant to me as a runner, and I can't comment on whether non-runners would be interested in it (though anyone can use positive thinking for various pursuits).  But this is definitely a great choice for runners, especially those looking for strategies to get out of their own way and train their brains to help rather than hinder their progress.
