Early Review! Gifted (The Dark Forgotten #4.5) Sharon Ashwood!

 

Who says the holiday season is just for humans?

 

For all the holly-jolly times, family gatherings are complex no matter who—or what—you are. When you’re hunting for the latest “it” toy to stuff a stocking, it doesn’t matter if you’re alive or Undead, fanged or furry—you’re just as desperate to be the cool dad. And then there are the family grumps who never send cards, the ones who eat all the good candy, and those who drool and dig up the neighbor’s yard.


No, the Yuletide Season isn’t for the faint of heart—and sometimes it’s downright demonic—but holiday miracles make it all worthwhile. Chance encounters and unexpected forgiveness remind us that joy doesn’t come in a gift-wrapped box.

This novella from the Dark Forgotten world catches up with favorite characters for a fresh take on the holidays.

 


No matter who – or what – you are, this Dark Forgotten holiday special is heartwarming and thrilling! As the strong, vivid characters prepare for the holidays while dealing with a demonic threat. Lots of holiday cheer, and sweet romance entertains readers while spine chilling suspense keeps readers on the edge of their seat. The idea of something good coming out something demonic inspires readers as a variety of characters discover holiday miracles make everything worthwhile even having to banish a sparkly demonic threat and battling holiday crowds. Readers can’t help but enjoy this fresh perspective of fanged and furry, magical and innocent characters take on the holidays while also getting to catch up on the lives of all the Dark Forgotten characters.

Release Week Review! Wolf Rising (SWAT: Special Wolf Alpha Team #8) Paige Tyler!

 

 

Werewolf SWAT Officer Jayden Brooks has yet to meet The One—but when he rescues teacher Selena Rosa from a hostage situation at her high school, he knows he’s in trouble. Her scent is irresistible.

 

There’s a reason for that powerful scent—and it isn’t an expensive perfume. Thanks to the traumatizing events at the school, the werewolf gene flipped on and Selena’s going through the change. Even scarier, she’s on track to become an omega—an out-of-control and violent breed. It’s going to take everything Brooks has if he wants any chance to pull her back from the edge…and ultimately win her heart.

 

 

SWAT – Sexy, Wonderful, Awesome, Terrific – that is what else the letters for SWAT can be in regards to the newest mission for these werewolves. Jayden’s in trouble when he catches the most irresistible scent of the high school teacher he rescues and Selena’s werewolf gene has flipped on in the wake of the traumatic experience. Together these two strong, dynamic characters have a sizzling chemistry that not only electrifies the pages but the readers as well while they take on all the turmoil and changes that they find themselves in. This relationship is scorching hot and quite sweet and readers easily become enamored with Jayden and Selena and want to know every last detail of their story.

 

Twist and turns, sweet romance and life altering changes can be found throughout this fast paced plot with lots of explosive excitement and thrilling suspense that keeps readers on the edge of their seat as hunters stalk the werewolves, a wedding turns deadly and cops betray their own. This series just keeps getting better and better and I find that I want to read it over and over and over again because I can’t get enough of all the sexy werewolves, wonderful romance, awesome twists and terrific plots that the author keeps creating in her fascinating world that has its own werewolf SWAT team which really just can’t get any sexier than it already is and did I mention HAWT!

Review! Cursed by the Moon (Wolf River #2) Rebekah R. Ganiere!

 

 

If they can open up to love, they could save each other from their pasts.

 

Noah was bitten by a werewolf in Afghanistan. Now back stateside he finds himself not only with new afflictions and nightmares, but a completely new creature. Noah wants nothing more than to end his pain, when the Night Shift steps in and relocates him to Malibu California to build a new life. The problem is, Noah's beautiful new roommate Cara and her friends are what he hates most in the world. Werewolves.

 

Between being attacked six months prior, and her mother's death, Cara struggles to keep herself together. But when wounded and broken Noah comes into her life she finds safety in his arms and opens herself up for the first time in years to the possibility of healing and moving on.

 

As Noah and Cara draw closer to finding the love that could heal both their souls, secrets from their pasts threaten to tear them apart. And when those secrets come to light it will take a bond beyond love to keep them together.

 

Beware: Contains a Hunky Alpha Marine with lots of baggage and a sweet hometown girl hoping to win his heart.

 

 

After being injured in Afghanistan and being turned into a completely new creature, Noah wants nothing more than to end his pain. Cara is struggling to pull herself together after being attacked. These two strong, captivating characters capture readers by their hearts and refuse to let go throughout this emotionally gripping romance full of depth, turmoil and a sweet bonding romance. This relationship between Cara and Noah is an uphill struggle on the sanest of days as both characters have some traumatic issues to deal with but the attraction between them steadily grows, pulling them closer and opening them up to the possibility of healing and moving on. The fast paced plot keeps readers biting their nails in anticipation of what will happen between Noah and Cara as they begin healing and overcoming their issues while the suspense builds throughout as well with secrets being uncovered, ones that just may destroy the fragile bond that draws them together. Another great werewolf romance in the Wolf Rivers series, it really tugs at heartstrings and ensures that readers want this couple to reach their happy ending.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-10-25 16:28
Review: Seasons of the Moon 1- Six Moon Summer by S.M. Reine

 

 

10803218

 

Packed off to summer camp while her parents get divorced, Rylie is determined to see it through and hope for the best- until that one night where it all changes and she's attacked by something she can't identify. Almost immediately she notices herself changing both physically and psychologically, yet as understanding blooms she doesn't understand how she survived the attack. An enigmatic boy at the camp, Seth, has the answers she seeks and offers to help her, but as the summer wanes and the wolf in her grows stronger, Rylie fights to maintain her self-control and hopes for a cure even as she searches for clues about the one who did this to her.

 

What's Good: The premise is intriguing- going from being a nobody to a monster and all things that happen in between. Rylie's teen angsting about her parent's divorce is what you'd expect. There's also some good secondary characters- I especially liked Louise, one of the camp counselors. I actually had more empathy for her than Rylie.

 

What's Bad: The MarySue/Speshul Snoflakiness of it all. At the wise old age of fifteen Rylie wants nothing more than to spend the summer in the art district of this nameless city sipping chai tea in coffee shops while reading and going to exhibits and summer festivals, just like the typical teenage girl she's supposed to be. Oh, and she doesn't have any female friends because they're too catty yet wonders if all her male buddies' girlfriends hate her because she's blonde and slender. Any of this sounding familiar, yet?

 

For someone who's life's been destroyed by becoming a legendary monster, Rylie's pretty blasé about it. It's all "Dear Diary: Mean girls at camp are bothering me... met a cute boy by the lake... I'm a werewolf now." Her biggest concern about it is her distaste for her insatiable cravings for meat, what with being a vegetarian. At least until the fateful night when she rips apart a fawn, then she has an emotional breakdown. She's actually more upset about eating Bambi than becoming a rampaging monster that'll want to slaughter things to begin with. But hey, we got veggie vampires nowadays so why not tofu werewolves? Plus the mysterious yet cute boy she meets knows a whole lot about what's happening to her yet she barely bothers to ask him more than a couple of questions at a time. And some of his answers don't make a lot of sense. When Rylie asks Seth what's happening to her, he responds, "The new & full moons are different. You change on the new moon because it makes the human weak, so the wolf emerges. On the full moon the wolf becomes strong. It dominates you." You kinda see what the author's trying to get at, but it doesn't come across very well. Like a friend of mine said: Heads, I win; Tails, you lose.

 

The mystery of the identities of the werewolves attacking the camp is nothing special. One's a bit of a surprise and the other one isn't, but what makes it bad is the ham-handedness of the whole situation. Rylie has questions (naturally) and is clearly a danger to herself and everyone else during her furry nights, yet the alpha wolf who bit her lets her flounder until the climax of the story. And their actions and motives are ridiculous- without going too far into it, how does this individual expect to keep the massacre of an entire summer camp secret? The second person's identity discloses more ridiculous plot holes: they've been a werewolf for a year yet apparently still lives in the city. Clearly this person was brought into the fold immediately but again, why wasn't Rylie? And how has this person been managing on their wild nights and why can't Rylie do the same?

 

And speaking of 'the city'... Wondering why I called it that? Because everyone in the book does. Rylie, Louise, Cassidy, Amber- everyone comes from 'the city'. The summer camp has a name, the mountain is located on has a name as do the river and lake around the camp, but the city, county and state they're all in don't, even though 'the city' has a North End and East Side with an art district.

 

The final showdown is a cartoon. Werewolves in human form can heal at an amazing rate- Rylie breaks her ankle yet it's well enough in a matter of moments for her to run full tilt along a mountain trail. Somehow none of this translates onto any other werewolves but her: in the final battle Rylie gets her throat ripped out but can keep on fighting since she's young and strong, which enables her to eviscerate her opponent- alpha were described as the size of a horse- to the point that he's on the verge of bleeding out. Really.

 

What's Left: There's flashes of good storytelling, especially the little insights into Rylie psyche before and after her transformations, but they're scattered and almost lost in all the MarySue-ism and silliness. Too many parts of the story feel slapped together because too much space is wasted showing how speshul Rylie is to help justify her being chosen becoming a werewolf in the first place. Which didn't make any sense, either.

A couple of minor twists in the story will keep you entertained but all the fudging to keep our girl the centerpiece of the story drags it all down.

 

The romance between Rylie and Seth is forced. Rylie knows he knows more than he's letting on yet she never asks him more than a couple of questions at a time- she's too preoccupied with flirting with him to remember why they're sneaking her away from camp during full moons.

 

There's a good premise here but it's bogged down by some absolute nonsense. The old adage of keeping it simple applies here, and simply put the series needs to be what it says it is: the story of a girl who gets turned into a werewolf.
