Review:

Rating: 5 Stars ✰✰✰✰✰

Phaelyn is book 2.5 in The Dark Shadows series by Ariel Marie. It is a short novella that can be read as a stand alone book.

Phaelyn is the only female in the Dark Shadows. She was once a human and was turned by her friend Nadira, the vampire princess, after being attacked by a rogue vampire in the woods outside her childhood home.

Idris is one of the royal guards. He was charged with keeping Watch over Anika, Nadira’s best friend and Toma’s fated mate, but he failed and they both ended up being taken by the necromancers. He knows it’s only a matter of time before the Dark Shadows find where they are hiding him.

Phaelyn is on the team sent to free Idris. When things don’t go quite as planned, they find themselves alone in a cabin for the night. Will they finally admit to the feelings they both have for each other?

This was a nice short read! It tied up some of the loose ends from Toma and Anikas story and also gives you a look into how Phaelyn came to be the only female in the Dark Shadows. Both Phaelyn and Idris are strong alpha characters. Idris has always had feelings for her but never acted on them. It wasn’t until they were alone that they realized that it was maybe more. There are a few dark moments in this book when Zoreal, the necromancer who tortured Idris, couldn’t handle losing and decides he needs some revenge. But don’t worry, there is plenty of HOTNESS to balance things out. It is another great book to continue this series.

Pavel

 

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Pavel by Brianna West is the second book in the Guardians in Love series but can be read as a standalone novel.

Eve and her sister have always had special powers. Ones that seem to be stronger on their birthdays. Since their parents died when they were younger, they have no idea why they have them and no one to teach them how to use them, so they do their best to hide them.

That is until the night Eve is attacked on the streets while walking home by some strange creatures. She is saved by a man who has powers of his own.

His name is Pavel and it turns out he is her protector. The problem? He’s gorgeous and he has no problem showing it.

This book was too cute! Pavel is one of those annoying guys that has no problems letting you know how hot he knows he is and no matter how hard Eve tries to get him to back off, he refuses to go away.

The truth is, he’s kind of adorable, as are his friends. They grow on Eve and every once in a while, you see Pavel’s true feelings shine through.

Eve is learning about how special she really is and what her powers are really meant for. She is being trained by Pavel on how to use them as they spend more and more time together, she finds herself being attracted to him.

As their feelings grow though, they keep finding themselves in danger and things keep trying to keep them apart. It seems there is a dark side that wants Eve and her powers for themselves.

There is a little bit of everything in this book, humor, hotness, suspense, hotness, evil, hotness, paranormal, oh and did I say hotness. It’s all in there and very tastefully done. You can’t help but love the Characters no matter how annoying they can be at times.

Lightning Forgotten

 

Synopsis:

Theo and Colby are running for their lives.
They now know the true enemy. Sanctum’s pursuit is constant, and it begins to take its toll on both Colby and the Eidolon. Colby grows weaker each time she flashes, while the Fray’s beckoning is driving Theo to madness.

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Lightning Forgotten by Lila Felix is the third book in the Lucent Series.

In this story, Theo and Colby are on the run from Sanctum. They find themselves in the dessert and run into some unexpected friends. Colby is getting sicker everyday and no-one knows why.

They are soon joined by their friends Colin and Ari to help them in try to find and defeat Sanctum.

Things are becoming dire and Colby finally comes up with a solution, but the consequences may be too much to bare.

It took me a minute to figure out what was going on in this story. I haven’t read the first two books yet. I recommend you do or you will be lost like I was.

After the first couple of chapters, I started figuring out what was going on and the story became really interesting. I became invested in the characters and the outcome of their lives.

The storyline is clean and refreshing. You can tell the characters love each other, but the intimacy is kept at a strict G rating.

I’m looking forward to reading the first two books.

Kassandra's Wolf

Title: Kassandra’s Wolf

Series: The Dragon Ruby book 3

Author: Leilani Love

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: October 14, 2016

 

Kassandra's Wolf

 

Synopsis:

She drugged him!

Damien had never before been as outraged until he awoke in his apartment—alone. His head sore and his ego deeply bruised, his body ached for the release her enticing body had promised when they walked up those stairs a few hours earlier. The whole situation would’ve been laughable except for the fact that his wolf imprinted on her. Damien knew that from now until the day he died, she will be the only one for him—and she had drugged him. After a quick search of the bar, he decided that nothing notable was missing, leaving Damien hoping that whatever she was looking for—she didn’t find. Maybe, his delectable thief would try again, at his home next time.

Kassandra is the only Dragon Guard who has the ability to hide her scent. So, when the wayward Dragon Prince Dmitri is spotted in the same town as the wolf shifter Damien, it becomes her responsibility to see what he is up to. Not finding what she is looking for at his bar, she makes a plan to sneak into his house—imagine her surprise when he is there waiting for her. When he mistakes her for a common thief, Damien offers an ultimatum: spend two days with him or he will turn her in and plaster her picture everywhere.

Damien has two days to convince her to stay and give in to the attraction.

Kassandra has two days to get the information she came for and make her escape. But, with trouble circling them and her growing desire for him—will she be able to walk away? Will it even matter once he finds out who she really is?

 

Review:

Rating: 5 Stars ✰✰✰✰✰

Kassandra’s Wolf by Leilani Love is the third book in The Dragon Ruby series.

Damien and his sister lose their parents at a young age after Roses mate kills them. Their pack does nothing to help them, and so they feel they have no other choice then to leave. Afterwards Damien spends his life taking care of his sister and opening and running a very successful bar. He has a reputation for being a playboy who is never with the same woman twice.

He is not expecting to scent his mate in the unknown woman who walks in his bar one night.

Kassandra is a dragon there on a mission. She needs to know if Damien is planning something with Dmitri. She has no problem using her charms to get close to Damien. And when the chance presents itself, she drugs him and spends the rest of the night looking for anything that can give her answers.

She finds nothing and is left with no other choice then to break into Damien’s house.

She wasn’t expecting what happens next.

Now Damien has 2 days to persuade her to stay and Kassandra has 2 days to get the information she needs.

This was a well written book. There are just enough twists to make it interesting and keep you on your toes. I loved watching Kassandra soften to Damien as he shows her that he is much more then the player reputation that he has gained. I also like watching Damien realize his true place in his pack.

Leilani is really growing as an author and each book continues to be better then the next. I look forward to more.

Morning Star

Title: Morning Star: The First Book of Lucifer

Series: Books of Lucifer

Author: S.E. Rise

Genre: Paranormal/Thrillers/Suspense/Erotica

Release Date: April 29, 2016

 

Morning Star

 

Synopsis:

The Angels found the daughters of men desirable. 
We still do. 
I am Lucifer, the Morning Star and I have Dominion over the Earth. God has destroyed the Earth countless times and I have survived through it all. 
I always survive. 
You can hate me all you want but just remember that I have the good tasting candy-the kind you like and want. The kind you need. I have known, yes in the Biblical sense, the most beautiful women in all of history. 
Shall I tell you a story or two? 
Take a walk with me and I will show you what the world is really like. It’s your choice-it is always your choice.
There is a beginning, there will be an end but the moments in between are where the story is found. 
And, if you are wondering, the answer is yes, the Angel Gabrielle does have a sexy ass. 
She always has. 
That is mine as well. 

 

My Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Morning Star is the first book in the Books of Lucifer Series by S. E. Rise. As Lucifer is going about his days, he reminisces on his past. We get to learn how Earth became his dominion and why he was cast down and given Hell to rule.

It’s almost hard not to like Lucifer in this book. Sure he’s a bad guy and he does bad things, but it’s mostly on impulse and if he happens to unintentionally hurt someone, he tries to make it right in a way that only he can. You see this many times throughout the book. His minions are loyal to him, but he has very few friends, and the ones he has don’t hesitate to double cross him when the need arises. One such friend is Cain. Cain is an old friend of Lucifers. He was cursed by God to walk the earth until the end of mankind because he killed his brother. Cain is up to something and Lucifer is determined to figure out what it is.

This was definitely a different take on biblical history. I had fun reading it and all the debacles that Lucifer found himself in. It’s got some gore, some sex, some demons, and some angels, some history, and a whole lot of shenanigans. If this is what you like then get this book. I’m looking forward to seeing what Lucifer gets himself into next.

In the Flesh

 

Review:

Rating: 5 Stars ✰✰✰✰✰

In the Flesh by K.D. Grace is the first book in her Medusa’s Consortium Series.

Susan’s friend Annie buys a deconsecrated church called Chapel House with plans to renovate it into a home for herself. She invites Susan to visit her at the church, but when Susan arrives, Annie is acting strange.

Annie is talking nonstop about her new boyfriend and how insatiable he is. The longer Susan is there, she starts to realize that something is not quite right in the church. She feels like there is someone there with her, but she can’t see them.

It turns out Annie’s new boyfriend isn’t human, and now he’s set his eyes on Susan.

Susan realizes she has to get them out of there, but that’s easier said then done. She finally escapes with the help of Michael, the contractor hired to do the renovations.

The longer Susan is around him, the more she starts to learn that the world she lives in and her place in it is not what she thought they were. The question is, can she survive it?

When I first started reading this book, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. It is based in a country that I am unfamiliar with so I had a little bit of a hard time envisioning it.

But I have to tell you, the longer I read it, the more it pulled me in. It isn’t your average ghost story. There is so much heat in this book, yet it doesn’t take away from the story line at all. The characters are so interesting and I found myself sympathizing with all of them, even the being in the church at times.

I highly recommend this book, and I can’t wait to read the next one!

House on the Hill

Title: House on the Hill

Author: Gwen Selix

Genre: Paranormal/Coming of Age

Release Date: February 28, 2016

 

House on the Hill

 

Synopsis:

*Trigger warnings* Though young adult this book is recommended for 16+ This book deals with suicide attempts and tough home lives.

To the outside world, Rebecca seems like any other teenager; she has a simple home life, two parents, average grades in school, and doesn’t have many friends. Rebecca learned at a young age how to hide everything with a smile; smile and no one asks questions. But her home isn’t as the world sees it… at home; she lives in her own personal Hell. Every day she has to face the Monster, as she calls him, he rules her house, taking the abuse every day until one night she make a mistake that will keep her from returning home. She finds the house, the boy, and the possibility of a better future. Will she take the chance at a better life? Or will she return to the Monster?

House on the Hill

 

 Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

House on the Hill by Gwen Selix is stand alone novel about a group of troubled kids who are drawn to a house and together start a new family as they come to terms with the things that happen to them in their past.

Rebecca lives in an abusive home. Her Father hates her and her mother is indifferent. It seems like the only use she has for them is to clean the house and run the errands. One night her father sends her out to the store only she can’t get what he needs. She is too scared to go home and instead finds herself wandering around at night in the rain. Until she sees the house on the hill. It calls to her and she has no choice but to answer.

This was an interesting story. Each of the kids that live in the house have a sad story. They are each lost in their own way. The house calls to them so that they can come to terms with what has happened to them and move on from it.

There is a twist though. When they battle their demons, they ascend and become guardians.

I have never read a book quite like this one. At first it seems like your typical story of a runaway who finds a group of kids like herself where she belongs. But then there is a supernatural twist to it. And then that twist even takes a twist. It definitely kept me guessing and continuing to read.

There is instalove in it as well but it was done tastefully and is very PG rated. There is adult content though that could cause problems if you have sensitivities to certain content. Like I said, the children in this story all have troubled pasts.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read!
