New Release Review! Jilly’s Wyked Fate (Ashland Pride #7) R.E. Butler!
Jilly's Wyked Fate - R.E. Butler

 

 

Mountain lion shifter, Jilly Fallon, has been waiting for nearly three years to turn twenty-one, so she can finally – finally! – officially mate Wyked and Fate Myers, the twin brothers who have stolen her heart. When a panther is injured at a clan gathering and Jilly can’t help, the clan healer takes her to visit a fae healer so she can learn what she needs. During the second visit to see the fae, they find themselves protecting a young girl with pink and blue wings, and a secret that got her family killed. 

Wyked and Fate Myers feel like the last three years have taken an eternity. Now that she’s finally theirs, they’re ready to start a family with their beloved mountain lion. During the last full moon before their clan begins to travel, an old enemy resurfaces, intent on making Jilly suffer for her betrayal. When Wyked and Fate are gravely injured, will she lose them both? 

Contains M/F/M interaction and a happily ever after worth waiting for. 

 

 

I have been waiting impatiently to read Jilly’s story as I am sure Jilly was waiting impatiently for the day of mating to finally take place and I have to tell you that it was well worth the wait. Jilly, Wyked and Fate are strong, charismatic characters that have fascinated me since they met each other. And now, well their passion had each and every page smoldering with some intense heat and well their mating was anything but boring as they sure had lots of emotional issues and other exciting events taking place, so there was never a dull moment anywhere in this book. The Ashland Pride is always fascinating and have easily captured my heart and continue to do so even as it grows, the stories are full of suspense and excitement as well as the wonderful romances that spark such spectacular multiple partner relationships.

 

R.E. Butler continues to bring readers stories full of passion and enjoyment by describing her worlds and characters with vivid detail that brings them to life and makes it so easy to pretend to be part of the story as it unfolds. Which of course, is how I became and continue to be so totally caught up in the Pride and their adventures and I don’t think that the author could have made Jilly’s Wyked Fate any better as she also introduced new characters and given us hints to future stories which I am certainly looking forward to.

 

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is the 7th book in the Ashland Pride series.

 

The 8th book - Embracing Ehrin will be available June 4, 2018.

 

Jilly’s Wyked Fate is available in ebook at:

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-03-20 14:58
Gyrfalcon - Anna Butler
Gyrfalcon - Anna Butler

Overall, I gave Gyrfalcon 3 stars and feel mostly positive about it, however for a while there it was looking a bit uncertain since the pacing of the first half of the book leaves a little to be desired and it's very clearly the start of a series (with all the additional world-building that involves).

 

The basic premise is that what's left of humanity is fighting a mostly-losing war against aliens and our main protagonist is a special forces type with serious daddy issues, not the greatest start for a character in my opinion. We first meet Bennett in the context of his team before he's shipped off (sorry, that pun was accidental) on his own to a mission using the eponymous warship commanded by his estranged father as a means of transport. They argued about Bennett's career path and also about the surprise discovery of his sexuality, after said father walked in on Bennett and a much older man. 

 

Bennett has time onboard the Gyrfalcon not only to start to rescue his relationship with his father but also to get involved sexually with one of the other pilots. Some people might struggle with this aspect of the plot, since it's clear Bennett is still in a serious relationship with the man with whom his dad found him all those years ago; since they're apart a lot, they've agreed to an 'open' relationship and both have taken advantage of this in the past. I'm not sure quite how I feel about it myself, it feels more than a little hypocritical of Bennett to have the attitude he does about Joss getting laid while he's away and yet enthusiastically embrace this opportunity for himself (repeatedly). 

 

As a result, that whole part of the relationship could be the make or break aspect for me when it comes to reading the rest of the series, though I may well see how the next book (Heart Scarab) handles it and go on from there. Likewise some of the writing is a little clunky, as there are a number of times where we get the same scenes from both main characters' point of view, which seems a little unnecessary.

Parable of the Sower - Octavia E. Butler

sigh. I love it--but it's a book that often makes me very sad, usually after a shock. I've gotten used to the fact that any character could be gone at any time, but Lauren's dream keeps me hopeful for some kind of optimistic ending...though there will be no paradise for these wandering souls. problem is: will I have to see Lauren fail? a great book, but tragic, at times.

Lauren seems to represent the best form of struggle--thoughtful, caring, persevering no matter what--a human could achieve, in a decaying future wasteland. I wonder what's going to happen to her.
