Review @RebeccaZanetti - Wicked Bite by Rebecca Zanetti (Realm Enforcers #5)




Wicked Bite 
Realm Enforcers #5
by Rebecca Zanetti

Goodreads blurb:  If you love the Dark Protectors, these wicked hot Realm Enforcers are for you!

As she hunts for a drug lord killing her fellow witches, all Nessa Lansa’s instincts point to the Grizzly motorcycle club. That might be because their leader, Bear, is the strong, silent shifter type: warm brown eyes and more muscle and alpha male than any woman can ignore. Which makes Nessa’s plan to seduce and betray him all the more dangerous . . .

Bear doesn’t trust the curvy, blue-eyed witch. But Nessa can heal the injuries that sap his strength. And since he can’t stop thinking of her lush body and teasing smile, her plan to mate him to reclaim her own power is highly tempting. Just one problem. Once a desire this wild is loose, no one will ever control it . . 


About the Author:  New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Rebecca Zanetti has worked as an art curator, Senate aide, lawyer, college professor, and a hearing examiner - only to culminate it all in stories about Alpha males and the women who claim them. She writes dark paranormals, romantic suspense, and sexy contemporary romances.

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 think I need to collect this series when I can!!

The cover is very nice, but it would be even better with a grizzly on the cover!

This is the 5th book in the series, but it is my first book to read in this series and by this author.  This is definitely for adults only due to the steamy content.  It can also be read in any order, but my suspicions are that it would be even better reading them all in order.

I loved this book because it had all my favorite things: shifters, action, magic, treachery, mixed paranormal world, and so much more!  I love action packed books like this one, and I had a hard time putting it down.  Bear and Nessa are both stubborn and awesome and reading their story was awesome.  I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say that you should read it!

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans because they book has everyone in it (shifters, witches, demons, vampires, and more)!  I can’t wait to read more of this world and check out more of Rebecca’s work!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - A Mate for the Christmas Dragon by Zoe Chant




A Mate for the Christmas Dragon
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A Christmas-loving dragon + an overworked retail assistant who hates the holidays + five days to win his mate's heart before a curse destroys his life = a Christmas clash with a heart-warming happy ever after.

Jasper Heartwell needs to find a mate before Christmas.

Jasper is a dragon on a mission. If he doesn’t find his mate by his twenty-fifth birthday, he’ll lose his ability to shift, and be stuck as either a human or a dragon forever. Luckily, his birthday is on Christmas Day. What woman could resist the spark of romance during the most wonderful time of the year?

Abigail George hates Christmas.

Most wonderful time of the year? Curvy Abigail learned long ago what a lie that is. She hates the fake snow, the cheesy carols, the hordes of shoppers that save their Christmas cheer for everyone except shop workers—and most of all, she hates going home to her empty apartment on Christmas Eve.

Jasper knows Abigail’s the one for him the moment he sees her. But can the Christmas dragon win his mate’s heart, when Christmas is the one thing she hates the most?

A Mate for the Christmas Dragon is a steaming hot standalone dragon shifter romance. HEA guaranteed! 


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!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  No one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have bought this book because it is awesome, and I own most of Zoe’s books!

The cover is nice and Christmas-y!

This is a Christmas dragon HEA because Jasper comes home to spend the holidays with his family because he has given up looking for his mate.  Christmas is his birthday and when the curse takes effect.  This is for adults only due to the steamy content and is about 230 pages long.

I was hooked from the start.  I found it humorous that the Christmas dragon and his mate are complete opposites.  He loves Christmas, and she hates it and all it stands for.  This story didn’t have the action I usually crave in a shifter book, but I was not bored and couldn’t put it down.  I loved the holiday magic created by Abigail and Jasper.

I highly recommend to any shifter fan who loves HEAs and especially if you love Zoe Chant’s work!  She always writes stories that I truly enjoy!  I can’t wait to read the next one!

Review - Simon by J.S. Striker (The Clan Legacy #9)




Simon
The Clan Legacy Series #9
by J.S. Striker

Goodreads blurb:  A great addition to J. S. Striker's best selling series!

Rule number one in trying to rekindle a friendship with a long-lost friend: act like her friend and nothing else.
Simon Alison always has his plan set out before him: complete as many missions as he can, help make the world a better place to live in, then settle someday with a fellow wolf shifter and run around the forest for the rest of his life. He likes things easy, and he likes following certain rules.

Until a certain witch comes back to his life.

Until said witch turns said life upside down.

She was a part of his past—and now she’s a part of his present, his mission and his suddenly aroused body all in one. It’s a disaster, really.

Except Simon isn’t sure if it’s one he wants to avoid or face with open arms…

***

Rule number one in trying to be the best witch in the world: never, ever be tempted by hot, dangerous men.
Robin Chesley always thought of Simon as the one friend she can always count on, and their years of separation never changed that for her. Imagine her shock when she meets him again and finds out that not all things stay the same.

The old Simon was kind, affable and sweet.

The new Simon is kind, dangerous and has the ability to burn her with a single touch.

She shouldn’t be thinking of him this way, especially when their mission requires focus more than anything else. But she can’t help it, and Robin has to learn the hard way that not all emotions go to plan—and not all friendships survive the kisses and touch of a man able to make her lose control… 


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.

***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 a work of art!  Love it!!

This is the 9th book in this series, and my favorite of the ones I’ve read so far.  This book is for adults only due to the steamy content.  The books can be read in any order, but I know I’m more connected to the characters having read the other books first.

This is Simon and Robin’s story.  I always thought there was something there.  This book has plenty of action, and the struggles of changing a friendship into a relationship.  I enjoy the story and could not put it down.  I don’t want to give anything away, but this is my favorite story in the series at this point.

I can’t wait to see what comes next!  J.S. has me hooked on this series!

I highly recommend this book to any shifter/witch fan who love when worlds have a little of everything paranormal with a fantastic action driven story!  I loved it!

Review @ZoeChantebooks -Bad Boy Biker Bear by Zoe Chant (Bears of Pinerock County #2)




Bad Boy Biker Bear
Bears of Pinerock County #2
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  Biker bear on the open road + BBW runaway-bride hitchhiker + evil motorcycle gang = an unforgettable red-hot road trip!

Tattooed bad boy and bear shifter Remy Hayes never felt like he fit in at his bear clan's rural Montana ranch. Now, after a fight with his alpha, he's taking his Harley and hitting the road. But it's more than just wanting to see what's over the next hill. Remy and his bear feel like there's someone out there, calling to him—the gorgeous blue-eyed girl who's been haunting his dreams.

Curvy fox shifter Saffron Blake grew up in a town run by a gang of motorcycle-riding shifters called the Black Wings. On Saffron's twenty-fifth birthday, the Black Wings' alpha demanded her as his own, but she fled ... out to the highway, where she thumbed down a ride. Remy pulled off on the shoulder, and his bear recognized his mate.

Now the hunted lovers are running from motel to wilderness to wide-open highway, with the Black Wings right behind them. Remy won't let anyone touch his mate, and Saffron begins to discover that finding her true mate means a whole lot more than the Black Wings ever taught her. And both of them have a lot to learn about love.

But when the chips are really down, Remy realizes that his clan brothers will stand with him, and Saffron must make the ultimate choice.

Sometimes you have to run a long way to find out where home really is...

This is a smoking-hot standalone bear shifter romance, #2 in the Bears of Pinerock County series.

**This book was previously titled Bad Boy Biker Bear.**

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  No one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have bought this book because I own most of Zoe’s books!

The cover is very awesome!  I love it!

I bought this book in August 2017, but I’m reading it now because I need to read the latest release and want to read them in order.  Anyone else have the problem of too many awesome books and not enough time to read!  This book is a novella of about 118 pages, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content and violence.

This is Remy’s story.  He is restless and heads out for an adventure.  He finds it and lots of trouble with Saffron.  They are true mates, and this is definitely a story packed with action, trouble, and so much more.  As always Zoe Chant has a great mix that makes her HEAs wonderful!  I love her books and can’t wait to read more!

I highly recommend to any shifter fan who loves awesome HEAs with a great mix of action and romance!

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 goes very well with the rest of the series.

This is the 6th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy scenes.  I would recommend reading the books in order or at a minimum reading book 4 and 5 before 6 as these 3 books are related and reference each other.

I think this book could have been expounded on to be a full novel.  I felt the ending was abrupt, but I do really like the book and series.  I’m sure this is something authors deal with all the time on whether to keep it a novella or develop it into a novel.  I really like Cassie and Tristan, and I also really like her friends and their new husbands.  I hope we get follow up on them and the ladies from the first 3 books.  It would be interesting to learn more about the president or what happens after this book with Lara.

I recommend this book and series to sci-fi romance fans who want an HEA alien style!

Review @sashawrites - Rescued by the Wolf by Sasha Summers (Blood Moon Brotherhood #2)




Rescued by the Wolf
Blood Moon Brotherhood #2
by Sasha Summers

Goodreads blurb:  Mal wants one thing in life—vengeance against those that deserted him and those who tortured him. But rescuing a wounded girl from their captors, one that wreaks of innocence and fear, makes Mal put his plan on hold. Temporarily. He’ll do what he needs to keep her alive and safe, even if it changes both of their lives forever.

Being stabbed and held in a dark cell wasn’t on Olivia’s top ten list. Her savior isn’t exactly hero material. Angry, scarred, and pissed at the world, he seems to resent being saddled with her. But the longer they’re together, the more firmly a connection forms between them. A connection that binds her to him, his pack, and his world. But that connection may just lead to her death.


About the Author:  Sasha grew up surrounded by books. Her passions have always been storytelling, history, romance, and travel. Her first play was written for her Girl Scout troupe. She's been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher or wash socks when she's doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.

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 pretty nice.  I love the moon in the background but adding a wolf would have made it perfect in my opinion.

This is my first time reading Sasha’s work, and I definitely want more.  This is the 2nd book in the series.  I hope to get book 1 in the future.  This is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  I do want to warn anyone who is sensitive to topics of being held against your will or torture that this book does contain some of these topics, so make the decision that is best for you.

I really like Mal and Olivia.  They are both very strong to deal with all they have.  There were a few times I was a little confused with regard to the Others, and I still have many unanswered questions that might be cleared up with book 1.  Mal was a bonehead a time or two, but I think Olivia has him straightened out.  I want to see more of this world because I’m intrigued.

I recommend this book to wolf shifter fans who like action and want something different!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - A Snow Leopards' Christmas by Zoe Chant (Glacier Snow Leopards #6)




A Snow Leopards' Christmas
Glacier Snow Leopards #6
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  Christmas is coming, and everything is going wrong...

Lillian Lowell has a problem. She's newly mated to the Glacier leopards' pack leader, snow leopard shifter Cal Westland, which makes her the...she's not sure what. Den mother? Whatever her job title is, she wants to live up to it, so she's throwing the best Christmas party she can plan. But she's two months pregnant, and suddenly even the simplest tasks seem impossible. She needs help--but she doesn't want to admit it. And for some reason, Cal is making himself scarce.

Alethia Landin has a different problem. She wants to have a merry Christmas, and enjoy the time with her pack--but she can barely look at Lillian right now, because all she's wanted for over a year is a baby, and it's not happening. Every month with no good news brings her and her mate, Grey, down further into the dumps. She's not proud of how jealous she is of Lillian, but it's hard to overcome. Will this ruin Christmas?

Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy. Can the Glacier pack come together and help each other through their problems? Does someone really mean it when they say they don't want a present? How many Pinterest decorations is too many? And will someone get a baby for Christmas?

A Snow Leopards' Christmas is a heartwarming and sexy tale of family coming together for Christmas. 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 fantastic, and I love it!  It is purrfect!!

This is the 6th book in the series, and it has all of them in the story.  I highly recommending reading this after you have read the rest of the series since this is like an update to their story.

I really loved reading this story and getting more of all of them.  This book doesn’t have the action I usually crave, but it is them trying to manage Christmas with all the chaos and everything else that tends to go with it.  It took me through all of the emotions, and they got it together and reaffirmed their HEAs in the end.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series!!

I can’t wait to read more of Zoe’s work because she always pulls me into the stories.  The stories are always awesome shifter HEAs.  I highly recommend to all who love these kinds of stories!
