Blog Tour - The Werewolf And His Boy

The Werewolf and His Boy by Warren Rochelle

Date of Publication: September 27, 2016

 

 

Blurb:

 

Their leap of faith could unleash magic-or plunge them into darkness.

 

Henry Thorn has worked at Larkin's since graduating high school. He likes it-especially when he can use his secret skill of hiding inside shadows so his boss can't find him. Without that talent, he would never have survived growing up different.

 

When a new hire enters the store, Henry's other latent talent kicks in. He can smell an emotional response even before he lays eyes on the redhead.

 

Jamey Currey came out, and his conservative parents promptly kicked him out. He, too, is different-he senses Henry's attraction the moment they meet. The first time they kiss, torrential rains fall from skies split by lightning.

 

Their kiss also awakens the Watchers, diabolical hunters who will stop at nothing-even extermination-to keep magic suppressed. With the help of a coven of friendly witches, the boys embark on a quest to discover an ancient key to restoring magic to the world, and to understand the mysteries of their own hearts.

 

Warning: Contains a werewolf and a godling, prescient dreams, bloodthirsty monsters, annoying pets, (mostly) friendly witches, dark secrets, sex in hardwares, and meddling gods.

Stoking the fire
In the Line of Fire - Jett Munroe

Beck & Delaney frequent the same coffee shop, where she visits her best friends.  After avoiding one another for about a year, he finally asks her out.  Delaney is shocked that he asks her, but knows that if she wants the chance, she must take it.

 

Delaney & Beck are HOT from the word go.  She has insecurities and a past full of hurt and secrets.  Can she learn to trust the one man who wants to take care of her?

 

Beck has a past also.  With lots of hidden secrets and a ton of darkness.  Can he overcome the pieces of his past that threaten their future?

 

I really REALLY loved this book!  I felt everything - and I was rooting for this couple all along.  Such a great story with a terrific HEA!  Good group of characters to root for.  I absolutely enjoyed every page!  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Samhain Publishing news

I just heard that Samhain Publishing is pulling a Tokyopop ("we're shutting down!" "um...we changed our minds"). I wish all their authors good luck. Personally, I'd be worried about Samhain's editing from here on out. Didn't a lot of their editors move on already?

The Monster Underneath - Matthew Franks
The Monster Underneath - Matthew Franks

The Monster Underneath is the maiden voyage for Matthew Franks and I have to say that I am really impressed. He has a masters degree in counseling and he uses that knowledge as the foundation of The Monsters Underneath.

 

Max Crawford is an unusual psychologist for the Texas prison system. He has a special psychic ability where he can enter inmate's dreams and relive their crimes with them to get them to feel remorse for what they have done. The FBI approach Max to use his special abilities on suspected killer, William Knox. Knox is being held on flimsy charges and is being accused of killing three young women. Without enough evidence to hold Knox and no chance of securing a confession, they turn to Crawford to enter into Knox's dreams while they still have him in prison to try and find enough evidence to force a confession.

 

Franks characters are the strength of his storytelling. Crawford and Knox are fully fleshed out and wonderfully three-dimensional. I enjoyed being a part of Crawford crawling inside Knox's head and he had me rooting for him to bust the bastard. Up to the 85% mark in this story, I was completely invested in it. Then the ending took an odd U-turn and simply felt like it was a weak attempt to leave it open-ended for the possibility of a sequel. That was disappointing. Outside of that, The Monsters Underneath is an extremely solid entry by Franks and his storytelling will have you hooked. I'm looking forward to seeing where his career takes him.

I Kill In Peace - Hunter Shea
I Kill in Peace - Hunter Shea

Peter gets a strange message at work warning him that he is going to be fired at the end of the day. The message is from someone labeled as AO. He doesn't know anyone by AO and writes it off as a prank and at the end of the day, guess what happens? That's right. His self-righteous prick of a boss calls him into his office and gives him the axe. Who is this AO and how did they know about it? Later on that day, AO sends him another message telling him to get ready to kill his ex-boss and that he'll send a red Mustang for him to use. Peter has no desire to follow through with AO's demand and refuses. As a result, he is greeted with the most excruciating, debilitating pain in his head. Seeing the Mustang pull in at the rendezvous point, Peter stumbles over to it to kick whoever this AO is ass. Whipping the door to the running muscle car open, he finds that there is no one inside and as soon as he sits in the car, the headache is instantly gone. Is Peter going crazy? How is this AO able to communicate with him and provide the means to kill his boss? Will Peter really go through with what AO demands?

 

I Kill in Peace is a fast paced tale from Hunter Shea that keeps you turning the pages so fast that they almost become a blur as you try to discover what is really happening to Peter. It is a tight story that you should let yourself have fun with. You'll be glad you did.
