Review @katiereus - Hunted by Darkness by Katie Reus (Darkness #4)





Hunted by Darkness
Darkness #4
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb:  From two different worlds…

Now that she’s escaped her oppressive family, Nyx is enjoying her new life and friends—even if most of her friends don’t know who or what she is. As a rare demigod, she’s just learning how powerful she truly is, but family drama turns her world upside down, throwing the one man she cares about into danger.

He wasn’t supposed to fall for her…

Nyx is nothing like the females half-demon Bo Broussard has been with. Sweet and innocent, she’s not even remotely his type. But the moment she walks into his bar, he knows he’s not letting her go. Unfortunately someone from her past thinks they can force her into an arranged marriage.

He’s not letting her go…

Someone is targeting one of them, and Bo doesn’t know why. When they’re thrown into a hell realm together, he and Nyx will need to band together if they want to survive the perils of that world. No matter who was behind the attack, his choice is clear. Defend Nyx at all cost and make her his forever.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book back in 2016, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own this whole series and many other books by Katie Reus!

The cover is subdued, but you sort of see Bo’s family symbols and the small fairy wings that give a hint of this being paranormal.

This is the 4th book in the series, and it is definitely for adults only due to the steamy content!  I also want to add that there are women abducted, abused, and raped in this book by demons though it is not described beyond the condition of the women when they are rescued, but please take precautions if this is a trigger for you.

This is Bo and Nyx’s story.  Her mother is calling in her favor, but everyone is leery for good reason.  Bo and Nyx have an unplanned adventure that is fraught with danger and new people (some good and others not so much)!  Bo is going crazy trying to keep Nyx safe, but he is also trying to give her space because he doesn’t want to control her life like her family.  Of course some of our favorites are helping out too like Victoria, Drake, and Finn.  I love all the action in Katie’s books.  I couldn’t put this one down either.

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who love all paranormals, magic, action, battles, and love!!

Review @katiereus - Beyond the Darkness by Katie Reus (Darkness #3)





Beyond the Darkness
Darkness #3
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb:  Now that she has her freedom, she’s not giving it up.

Dragon shifter Keelin Petronilla spent centuries in forced hibernation dreaming of one thing: freedom. Now she’s living life on her terms—she’s ditched her clan for an unruly wolf pack, she tends bar for a half-demon, and she’s loving it…until a powerful supernatural being targets her. She intends to handle the mysterious attacks on her own…without the help of dragon Alpha Bran Devlin. Sure, he’s sexy in that hot, scowling possessive way, but Keelin wants to live her own life in her own way.

Now that he’s found his mate, he’s not letting her go.

Former black ops agent Bran Devlin is a born dragon Alpha and leader of a fierce clan. Getting mated was never part of his plan—until a feisty dragon princess gets under his skin in a big way. The hell of it is, she doesn’t want a mate; she just wants to have a good time. He plays along, but when a dark and powerful being marks her for death, he’s determined to stay by her side in spite of her protests. Now that he’s found his mate, he means to keep her safe no matter what the cost…even if he has to risk it all.

The cover is very subdued, and you would know it is paranormal except for the small dragon that gives you a hint.

This is Keelin and Bran’s story!  Keelin is Drake and Conall’s sister, and Bran is the Devlin Clan’s Alpha.  Keelin is staying in Biloxi because she wanted some freedom.  A month later, Bran shows up.  There is all sorts of drama, fights, danger, and as usual demons trying to hurt them.  This time Keelin is the target, but they are trying to figure out why.  This was another action-packed book, but I don’t want to give anything away, but we have lots of new faces who show up.  We also have some favorites from the other books who return like Finn, Vega, Drake, Rhea, Conall, and Victoria!  I love this world and how they are making alliances and helping each other out!

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who love complex worlds filled with all types of being, action, fights, treachery, mystery, intrigue, and mating fire!

Review @AuthorJasParent - Hearing Evil by Jason Parent (Cycle of Evil #2)





Hearing Evil
Cycle of Evil #2
by Jason Parent

Goodreads blurb:  Michael Turcotte wants nothing to do with his so-called gift—the ability to see other people’s fates simply by touching them. Michael decides to spend his summer searching for answers about his past. He can’t rest without the sounds of forgotten tragedy echoing through his dreams, but reconstructing his memories will come with a whole new set of problems even he can’t foresee.

Detective Samantha Reilly has always looked out for Michael, but now that she’s taken him into her home, she fears her maternal instincts are lacking. When a brutal gang sets off a chain reaction of crimes, Sam struggles to choose between the two most important things in her life: her job and her new foster son. Fate intervenes when Michael is kidnapped, forcing her two roles to collide.

As Michael’s past meets Sam’s present, their bond will be tested while a city crumbles around them. They’ll need all their skills and a lot of luck in order to survive. 


About the Author:  In his head, Jason Parent lives in many places, but in the real world, he calls New England his home. The region offers an abundance of settings for his writing and many wonderful places in which to write them. He currently resides in Southeastern Massachusetts with his cuddly corgi named Calypso.

In a prior life, Jason spent most of his time in front of a judge . . . as a civil litigator. When he finally tired of Latin phrases no one knew how to pronounce and explaining to people that real lawsuits are not started, tried and finalized within the 60-minute timeframe they see on TV (it's harassing the witness; no one throws vicious woodland creatures at them), he traded in his cheap suits for flip flops and designer stubble. The flops got repossessed the next day, and he's back in the legal field . . . sorta. But that's another story.

When he's not working, Jason likes to kayak, catch a movie, travel any place that will let him enter, and play just about any sport (except that ball tied to the pole thing where you basically just whack the ball until it twists into a knot or takes somebody's head off - he misses the appeal). And read and write, of course. He does that too sometimes.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I want to add this to my library in the future!

The cover is intense and grabs your attention!

This is the 2nd book in the series, and I would recommend reading the books in order.  You will want to know what happened previously especially with the other kids.  This is for adults due to the violence.

Michael and Detective Reilly are back as the main characters in this book.  Michael has questions about his past and family.  Sam is trying to protect him as always.  Bad things start happening all over town and starting with the court house.  Sam has a bad feeling.  Sam has a lot of trouble, and Michael is a part of it.  This book definitely gives you some heebie jeebie moments throughout, and it kept me guessing what was going to happen next!  And it always surprised me.  I really got hooked on Sam and Michael’s story!  Of course by the end there were more questions, so I need / want to read the next book to see what happens next!

I highly recommend to anyone who likes mystery, suspense, thrillers with some paranormal, and tons of action!  I couldn’t put this book down!

Review @celiakyle - Claimed by the Bear or All Roar and No Bite by Celia Kyle (Grayslake #2)





All Roar and No Bite
or



Claimed by the Bear
Grayslake #2
by Celia Kyle

Goodreads blurb:  Who needs claws when you’ve got a baseball bat? Lauren Evans sure as heck doesn’t.

Human Lauren has a protective streak a mile wide and one immediate goal in life—get her best friend out of an abusive household. If that involves a little bat-based redecorating, so be it. Unfortunately—or fortunately—a certain sexy-as-hell cop breaks up the fight before she has a chance to really get going. Grayslake police officer Van Abrams is too hot for his own good, and his handcuffs make all those wonderful places tingle. Too bad he, you know, arrested her and stuff. But then he becomes overbearing, demanding, and commanding. Suddenly Lauren finds herself in his arms, in his bed, and mated to his werebear butt. What’s up with that?

Werebear Enforcer Van Abrams doesn’t want anything to do with humans. He’s got reasons, and they’re damn good ones. He doesn’t need to explain himself to anyone, especially the curvaceous, luscious, gorgeous, human Lauren. Then, his bear decides Lauren is his mate and Van’s anti-human feelings abandon him. He still hasn’t figured out if that’s a good thing. Of course, when danger rolls in from Boyne Falls and joins with a powerful prick from Grayslake, Van realizes that, human or not, Lauren is his.
Van hopes he can kill their enemies and still make it home for dinner.

Warning: This book contains bad guys (more than one) being bad to good girls (two if you’re counting), and one group of humans who sorta end up… dead. Unfortunately, all that comes with a lot of blood, tears, and balls of fur. In this one, boy bears really do drool and human girls rule (and kick ass). We also learn that you can never have enough baseball bats, brake fluid, or fire pokers. Just sayin’. 


About the Author:  Celia Kyle would like to rule the world and become a ninja. As a fall-back, she’s working on her writing career and giving readers stories that touch their hearts and *ahem* other places.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book back in 2014, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own this whole series!!

The both covers are great!  This book was originally published under the title All Roar and No Bite, and I think the cover and name changed when Kindle Worlds went away.

This is the 2nd book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  While it is not necessary, I highly recommend reading the books in order because it is more awesome when you know the other characters!

Lauren is protective, and while she is protecting her friend from an abusive husband, she gets arrested by Van.  She is Van’s mate!  Van has some baggage having to do with humans because of his past!  This causes all sorts of drama, and her life is in danger.  This was an exciting read, and a certain cub from book 1 also causes his own fair share of trouble.  I loved this book as much as the first.  Can’t wait to see who is next in finding their mate!

I highly recommend to bear shifter fans who love Celia Kyle’s style and exciting stories with lots of bears!

Review @katiereus - Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus (Darkness #2)





Taste of Darkness
Darkness #2
by Katie Reus

Goodreads blurb: He spent more than a thousand years imprisoned in hell…

Drake is an ancient dragon shifter, one of the most powerful beings in existence, but a millennium trapped in utter darkness has left him ill-equipped for modern society. If it wasn’t for Victoria, the sweet female brave enough to befriend him, he’d be lost. She’s smart and gorgeous and everything he never dared dream of during his years of agonizing loneliness. He may not have anything to offer her, but one thing he knows for sure: he’d die to keep her safe.

Only to fall into the heaven of her touch.

Victoria is a wolf shifter, healer of the Stavros pack. She’s seen a lot, but she’s never met anybody quite like Drake, the fiery, fascinating shifter who can blaze through the skies unseen by mere mortals. He’s lost, dangerous, and the last male she should fall in love with, but the more time she spends helping him navigate modern life, the deeper—and hotter—their connection becomes. She’s thrilled when they finally locate his family, but reuniting with his people plunges them both into unimaginable danger. It’s a race against the clock trying to figure out who wants them dead and who they can trust, especially when the threat is closer than they ever imagined.

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who love action galore, mystery, battles, and all sorts of paranormals!

Review @Violet__Vaughn - Called by the Bear: The Next Generation by V. Vaughn (Part #1)





Called by the Bear
The Next Generation
Part #1
by V. Vaughn

Goodreads blurb:  Audrey - I’m not sure what I was hoping to find when I returned to my mother’s hometown in California twenty-five years after she'd moved to Maine. It sure wasn’t the hot stranger I had to leave behind when I got word my brother had been kidnapped. The guy was supposed to be a one-night stand, but even though I’m three thousand miles away from him, he’s crowding my mind with memories when my focus needs to on my brother Connell’s rescue. Even more importantly, I should be thinking about the implications of the Eradicators’ return for vengeance against werebear.

Max - Audrey Le Roux had no idea her carefree days were about to come to an abrupt halt the night we met. But I did. I shouldn’t have let her see me… or have me. I was caught in her spell the way she was in mine, and my weakness may have ruined everything. As the alpha in line to take over for the woman who saved an entire werebear kingdom, Audrey’s about to be tested in ways only the strongest can survive. To do so she’s going to need me by her side, but she has to earn my heart in a contest she has no idea she’s entered. One I can’t lose.    


About the Author:  V. Vaughn is the pen name for Violet Vaughn, a USA Today Bestselling author. Violet lives in New Hampshire and spends almost every day walking through the woods. She may have seen a bear once or twice....

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I will collect this series when I can!

This is the 1st part in a new serial that is a spin-off from Called by the Bear and is about their children.  It is for adults only due to content.  This is a serial, and it means this is a part of the whole and not a whole book.  If you do not like cliffhangers, you may want to wait until the serial is complete.

This story is told from several viewpoints and is the starting point.  It is some of each one’s story.  I haven’t read every book in this world, so I may be missing things between the first serial and this current one.  It engaged me and made me want more to see what would happen next.  It also makes me want to read all those in between serials that I’m haven’t read yet.  Audrey is worried about her brother, and she heads home even though she suspects she’s met her mate the night before.  He is following her back home too, but he is driving across the country.

I recommend to any fan of Violet’s serial’s who love this world and want to know about their kids!!

Review @SableSylvan - Stud Muffin Bears by Sable Sylvan (Freshly Baked Furry Tails #1)





Stud Muffin Bears
 Freshly Baked Furry Tails #1
by Sable Sylvan

Goodreads blurb:  Do you know the muffin bears?

Curvy baker Jennifer Drury moved to Port Jameson, Oregon because she was unlucky in love, so the last thing she expected to find was two hot, handsome lumberbear suitors on her first day on the job. Jennifer wants them — after all, her muffin needs stuffin’. The only problem is, Jevon and Rufus are rivals. Will these werebears learn to share their mate’s muffin top? And will Jennifer come up with a unique recipe worthy of taking first at the Port Jameson Bakeoff?

Jevon Cain is an all-American werebear and member of the Grizzlyfir Crew. He keeps as much distance from the stuck-up boys from the Hemlock Crew as he can. When he finds one of their lumberjacks blocking the way between him and his fated mate’s curvy cupcakes, he’s going to take his rival down. Rufus might be built like a redwood, but that’s no match for Jevon’s bear claws.

Rufus Steel never thought that his summer punishment working with the Hemlock Crew would lead him to his true love. That’s why he knows the connection he feels with Jennifer must be fated. The only problem is, some townie wants to take what’s rightfully his. Rufus hasn’t moved across the country to lose his fated mate to another man or another shifter, and he’s not about to go back home without her.    


About the Author:  The only thing I love more than reading hot paranormal romances is writing down my fantasies and sharing them with readers like you. My heroes are strong alpha male bear shifters who can be grizzly and gruff at times...but when it comes to their fated mates, they're absolute teddy bears. My curvy heroines are strong, sassy women, which is why the werebear men who love them will do anything for their love.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!! And I have bought my own copy as I do most of Sable’s books!

This is the 1st book in this new series, but it is still in the same awesome bear-tastic world, and we are back in Port Jameson!  This is for adults only due to the steamy content involving this trio of mates!

This story involves another baker at Bear Claw Bakery which is to be expected because the way to a bear’s heart is through his stomach.  Jennifer comes for Fallowedirt which should be familiar if you love Sable’s work.  She wasn’t having any luck with love, so she decided a change of scenery was needed.  She is now the muffin woman at the bakery!  She has a contest to win for the bakery.  She meets two werebears who are from different lumber camps that have beefs with each other.  This was a fun story of her adventure in werebears, and it starts very humorously!  It also has some familiar bears make an appearance too!  I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I highly recommend to any bear shifter fans who love Port Jameson bears and lumberjacks in plaid!!
