Review @MillyTaiden - Mating Needs by Milly Taiden (A.L.F.A. #2)




Mating Needs
A.L.F.A. #2
by Milly Taiden

Goodreads blurb:  A cougar shifter meets his mate and match in this latest sexy paranormal adventure in the A.L.F.A. series as another Alpha League Federal Agent finds love and passion in the midst of danger by the New York Times bestselling author of Elemental Mating


About the Author:  Milly Taiden (also writes as April Angel) was born in the prettiest part of the Caribbean (to her) known as the Dominican Republic. Currently, she resides in New York City with her husband, bossy young son and their little dog Speedy.

When she’s not working full-time, texting with her best friend Heidi in England, chastising her son for pulling the dog’s ears, shopping with her sister Jewel or watching scary movies with her husband, she can be found writing on her laptop.

She’s addicted to shoes, chocolate, Dunkin Donuts coffee and JIMMY THOMAS covers!!!

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

***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!  I own this book and book 1!

The cover is my favorite kind!  It has both beautiful beasts on the cover.

This story is about Frank, who is the agent, and Amie, who is his mate.  I’m torn because the blurb really doesn’t give you anything, but I don’t want to ruin the adventure for you.  They met in college, and they fell in love.  Her family is connected to the mafia.  She tries to play the game to keep herself and her family safe.  When she witnesses a crime, she needs protection.  This story is action packed and very humorous at times.  I really loved the story!  I admire Amie, and she goes out of her way to help anyone and everyone.

I love Milly’s writing style.  I was engaged in the story and didn’t want to put it down.  She has action, drama, treachery, family, friends, romance, and an awesome HEA ending!

I highly recommend to all shifter fans who want a world filled with shifters, unknowing humans, witches, demons, and all around bad guys with a sense of humor that had me laughing!  I can’t wait to see what happens next!!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - Bearista by Zoe Chant




Bearista
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A tough bear shifter bodyguard undercover in a coffee shop + a curvy barista with an adorable 5-year-old + a deadly shifter assassin = a scorching thrill ride of a romance!

Tough as nails and hard as steel, Derek Ruger has spent his life in dangerous parts of the world, and has the scars (emotional and physical) to show for it. But this is his most difficult assignment yet: going undercover in a coffee shop to protect a curvy witness, who happens to be his fated mate!

Single mom Gaby Diaz is just trying to make ends meet, working as a coffee shop barista while taking night classes, caring for her 5-year-old son, and supporting her widowed mother. Then she witnesses an armed robbery, and now she's being hunted by an assassin and protected by a hot, gruff bodyguard who just might be able to coax Gaby into opening up the heart she's been sheltering for years.

Hot as a fresh cup of coffee, Bearista is a standalone BBW paranormal romance with a Latina heroine and a protective bear shifter hero. No cliffhangers!  


About the Author:  Zoe Chant loves writing paranormal romance. Over a cup of tea (or something stronger) she whips up sexy tales of hunky heroes and adventurous heroines to tantalize and satisfy her readers. Sizzling hot romance, no cliffhangers!

The cover is WOW!!  It is my favorite kind of cover with both beautiful beasts on it!

I loved this book because she is a single mom who works her butt off for her family, and she wins all around in the end with her happily ever after.  Her son is adorable, and he is included in the HEA!  She is fierce when it comes to the people she cares about, and she won’t leave anyone behind.  Derek is pretty awesome, and I love how automatically her family is now his.  It is definitely a sexy quality in a man!  He is just as fierce and protects what is his.

Zoe Chant is amazing at writing action packed HEAs that leave you so happy to have read them!  I can’t wait to read the next one!

I highly recommend this book and any Zoe Chant book to shifter lovers who love a perfect blend of action, romance, and HEAs!  Zoe nails the combination every time!

Review - Isaac by J.S. Striker (The Clan Legacy Series)




Isaac
The Clan Legacy Series
by J.S. Striker

Goodreads blurb:  Isaac is an addicting and intense addition to The Clan Legacy Series. J. S. Striker weaves her highly crafted characters through this magical world leaving a brilliant trail for more to come. A standalone story taking place in the same world as her previous stories, Isaac has rave reviews from her eager readers and will be sure to satisfy anyone looking for adventures through portals, gorgeous shifters, fairies, and for an intensely satisfying romance.

Blurb:
Ever since he’s been cursed ten years ago and unable to get out of his own clan borders, Isaac Hart has made it his policy never to deal with fairies again—that is, until one suddenly shows up and demands to speak with him.

She’s also the daughter of his curser.

She offers him a mission, and it’s pure madness to go. But what other choice does he have when it’s also the chance for his freedom? Amidst very different worlds and an intense heat growing between them, their fates intertwine—and Isaac must decide if it’s one he wants or one he must take to the grave.

Roxie K'Lashtama has a lot of game-playing to do, and the biggest one yet involves a very arrogant, very powerful panther clan leader. Isaac is unlike any man she’s ever met.

He’s also the only one who can help her rescue her mother.

It’s supposed to be easy, really—convince him his curse will be lifted, and all will be well. But Roxie has a secret, and as the journey goes on, Roxie must decide whether she has to fight for her secret—or fight for the intense feelings that she has for the man she’s not supposed to have them for.

Adult Content. 


About the Author:  J.S. Striker lives on the west coast with her hubby and 2 Great Danes. The coast is full of magical forests, the mountains and ocean often giving her inspiration for her stories. Having worked as a social worker most of her adult life J.S. is now giving writing all her energy and loving every minute of it.

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 got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I did buy my own copy of this book too!

The cover is dark and sexy!

This story is part of the Clan Legacy Series, and it follows Mate Hunt in the timeline.  This is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content. This book is about 198 pages and a quick read that I enjoyed thoroughly.

Plenty of action and adventure going on in this book!  We learn more about the panther leader Isaac and his curse.  Roxie is a fairy who comes to him for help.  They both are weary of each other and do not trust each other, but they both want something from each other.  There is treachery, betrayal, battles, bad parenting, romance, and more! 
I recommend to any paranormal fan who likes complicated mixed worlds(shifters, vamps, fae, etc)!  There is never a dull moment!

Review @JessieDauthor - Finding the Dragon by Jessie Donovan (Stonefire Dragons #10)




Finding the Dragon
Stonefire Dragons #10
by Jessie Donovan

Goodreads blurb:  **This story isn't a standalone novella. Please read at least Reawakening the Dragon (Stonefire Dragons #5) first.**

On the day Jane Hartley’s online video series finally launches, she and Kai receive word that his younger half-sister, Delia, is missing. Gaining permission to search for her in Wales, Kai and Jane work together to find the teenage dragon-shifter before she winds up in the hands of the dragon hunters, or worse.

As the danger amps up, Kai and Jane’s relationship is put to the ultimate test. Will Kai and his dragon choose Jane above all? Or, will a ghost from Kai’s past end up tearing them apart?

Approximately 30,000 words with a happy ending (novella). / 18+ for explicit language and sexual situations. 


About the Author:  Jessie Donovan wrote her first story at age five, and after discovering the Dragonriders of Pern series by Anne McCaffrey in junior high, realized that people actually wanted to read stories like those floating around inside her head. From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.

After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.

Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.

The one thing you'll find in all of Jessie's stories are strong, capable women and the people who love them.

The cover is awesome!  I’m not sure why I love that look on his face, but I do!

This is the 10th book in the Stonefire series, but there are other dragon books in the spin-off series too!  These books are for adults only due to the steamy content.  I highly recommend reading them all and in the order that they were written.  I truly love this whole series, and it is one of my favorite series!

This story is about Kai and Jane’s adventure in finding Kai’s sister.  They have to deal with Kai’s past and some treachery while uncovering the mystery behind his sister’s disappearance.  It was a fantastic adventure that I didn’t want to put down.  I was worried when some things unfolded, but it was all taken care of, and I see some exciting possibilities for the future for Stonefire and Snowridge.

I highly recommend this book and series to all dragon shifter fans especially if you have read any of this series and enjoyed it!  I love these dragons!!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - The Snow Leopard's Pack by Zoe Chant (Glacier Snow Leopards #5)




The Snow Leopard's Pack
Glacier Snow Leopards #5
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A librarian with a difficult past + a veteran snow leopard shifter + a dangerous threat = one passionate romance!

Divorced, broke, and living at home: Lillian Lowell has given up hope. Ever since her ex-husband left her with a monstrous debt, she’s focused on making her life as small as possible so she can pay it off. Even so, it’s going to take years, and she’s already in her mid-thirties. Any thoughts of a family and a future have already slipped away.

Snow leopard shifter Cal Westland is married to his job. In the ten years since he left the Marines, he’s dedicated his life to being head ranger at Glacier National Park. Now that there’s a snow leopard pack living there, though, he’s become their alpha, as well as their boss. He loves being a ranger—but he’s a natural loner, and leading a pack full of twentysomethings doesn’t come easily to a middle-aged man who’d rather mind his own business.

But when Lillian is threatened by a group of mountain lion shifters, suddenly his solitude doesn’t seem so important. Cal is determined to protect Lillian—both from her present, and from her past. Can Cal keep Lillian safe, and show her she has a future after all? And can Lillian show Cal that being true pack leader doesn’t mean being alone?

The Snow Leopard’s Pack is a sizzling hot, standalone BBW snow leopard shifter romance. No cliffhangers! 


About the Author:  Zoe Chant loves writing paranormal romance. Over a cup of tea (or something stronger) she whips up sexy tales of hunky heroes and adventurous heroines to tantalize and satisfy her readers. Sizzling hot romance, no cliffhangers!

The cover is beautiful and awesome all at once!

This is the 5th book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  While it isn’t mandatory, I highly recommend reading the series in order because you know the back story of what has happened and what the characters are like.  It is so much more altogether than it is apart.

I have been waiting for Cal’s story!  He has been standoffish and aloof for most of the series!  Now I know the story, but I’m not giving it away.  You have to read it.  If you have read the other books, you know he is always there for everyone.  I have always liked him, but wondered what was up with him.  Lillian is Teri’s sister, but Lillian has kept her sister in the dark about why she lives at home.  This is another story with a perfect mix of action/trouble and romance.  Zoe knows the mix that makes each story great!

I highly recommend to all shifter fans especially if you love HEA endings!  Zoe Chant is the queen of make you feel good HEAs!  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!  She is one of my favorite authors!

Review @Violet__Vaughn - Oliver by V. Vaughn (Greenville Alien Mail Order Brides #5)




Oliver
Greenville Alien Mail Order Brides #5
by V. Vaughn

Goodreads blurb:  Morgan Jenkins built her coffee shop from the ground up, and when aliens began to come to Earth she benefited from the extra business. But caffeine affects some of the men from the planet Eroscia in dangerous ways, and new government regulations banning caffeine consumption threaten her business. So when Oliver, her alien match, arrives in the middle of her crisis, she doesn’t have the time to cultivate their relationship or the desire to deal with his version of help.

As a nutrition scientist for Eroscia, Oliver is no stranger to how food can impact the body, and he’s willing to do whatever Morgan needs to help save her business. Oliver knows he and Morgan are a near perfect match, and even though his new love is reluctant to let him in, he refuses to back down. But when Oliver pushes too hard, Morgan tells him to take a hike — all the way back to Eroscia. He must find a way to convince Morgan they’re perfect partners in business as well as love.


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 got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! 

The cover is great!  Love it!

This is the 5th book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  It is novella length and a quick read at 67 pages long.  While it is not mandatory to read them in order, I think you will like it more if you do read them in order because it makes the world much richer.

I really like Oliver.  I think he is intelligent and quick to try and help.  Morgan was a control freak in the beginning, and I was on the verge of really not liking her.  I understand why she was acting the way she was, but I still wanted to slap her.  She does redeem herself in the end.

I wish this book was longer because parts were a bit disjointed to me and abrupt in the transitions.  I think with the things going on in this book that it could have been a full novel.  I like this series, and I can’t wait to see what Violet cooks up next!

I recommend this novella to Sci-Fi fans who like HEAs with intelligent sexy aliens!
