Gone Fishin’

Well, metaphorically speaking at least. To actually go fishing would mean I would have to go sit outside for hours on end. No thank you.

So, the past year has been hard on everyone. There has just been a whole lot going on for everyone, and it’s no different for me. I’ve had a lot happen in the past few months, and I’m tired. I’m going to take the rest of April off, except for one post next week, a commitment I can’t break. I just need the time to catch my breath, rest, relax, and probably get high.

I’ll still be reading, and if you follow me on GR or check in here once in a while, you can keep up with what I’ve been reading and reviewing. Frankly, I’d have to be dead to stop reading, and that might not even do it.

So, until May 1, everyone go out, find a book you like, sit down, and practice some self-care. Stay safe, get your shots, and avoid other people like the plague.

EXCERPT:

“Make love to me,” she murmurs, her eyes heavy-lidded and mouth parted. “Please.”

“And the tradeoff?” I ask as I sit up to yank off my suit jacket.

“You already saved me. It’s my turn to thank you.”

I don’t argue with that logic, ripping off my clothes in record speed. Once I’ve snatched away her dress and undergarments, I kiss my way down to her p*ssy. Her aroused scent makes my mouth water to taste her. It seems like eons since I’ve had my tongue on her here when in actuality, it’s only been a few days.

“Spread your legs and let me see how wet you are,” I command. “Playing the damsel in distress turns you on.”

Blurb:

Betraying the most powerful man in New York wasn’t something I ever envisioned when I first started playing games with Winston Constantine. But he’s engaged in far more dangerous games than ours, and his enemies are out for blood.

Winston has my heart, the Morellis have incriminating photos, and I’m left with nothing except three stepbrothers who want to hurt me and a future in doubt. I knew Winston wouldn’t be my prince charming, but that didn’t stop me from falling for him.

After all, the slippers fit, and I let myself believe I’d be dancing with Winston forever.

Until too much truth comes to light.

Until I realize instead of ruling the board, I was just a pawn.

In the end, I have only one question. When his game with me is over, will I be able to pretend as if the glass slipper wasn’t a perfect fit?

Sara Fields-Rough

Sara has written a new book in her Alpha Brotherhood series. This is a dark omeagverse series with a wonderful overall storyline that keeps me really interested along with all that hot sexy sex. So, let’s talk about Rough, shall we?

So, we have Ariana, who is a member of the Brotherhood, and an omega. She’s being marched to Kingsworth because she was abducted by members of the evil Cult that she and the Brotherhood are trying to take down. She ends up in their dungeons with a lot of other omegas. After some testing, she gets dragged in front of some masked and robed people who tell her that she is going to be taken before the new king, Magnar, and is going to be gifted to him.

Magnar has spent years working his way up through the Cult so that he could be in the position that he is in. He has no plans to take an omega, ever. But, when he is gifted Ariana by higherups in the Cult, he knows that he has to take her. That’s OK, he has a special room attached to his room, and she will be able to live there, and he won’t have to worry about her making him weak. Nor does he have to worry about her finding out his secrets, because he has some. And his secrets could end up causing him some real problems.

Ariana, being the daughter of the head of the Brotherhood, is really smart and very well trained. She’s sneaky, tricksy, and very strategic. She takes any and all information that she gets, saves it, and then puts it into her brain where she can plug it in with everything else she knows. Because she is trapped in this room by Magnar, she has plenty of time to think. And she has a library locked in with her, and plenty of time to read. Knowledge is power, and Ariana is really powerful.

Magnar has more going on than it looks like. He’s really smart, but I think that he’s pretty happy to be underestimated by everyone, because it lets him do what he needs to do. He has some serious plans that I think that a lot of people wouldn’t like and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when those plans get put into place.

OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out. Happy reading!

Anthology-Outlaws

When I signed up for the ARC of this one, I didn’t really read the blurbs. I don’t always, depending on who the authors are. With Yolanda, Petra, and Ally, I knew that it would be good whatever it was. So, when I started to read Outlaws, I wasn’t sure what I was going to get, but I knew it was going to be good. And holy fuck, was it. Now , before you start to read this, be aware that the title doesn’t refer to bikers, Mafia guys, or anything like that. I’m pretty sure that it comes from jokes about outlaws and in-laws.

All of these stories are filthy. Some of them are so filthy I need a shower just from thinking about them. They all take the thought of family to a whole other level. They are twisted and will leave you questioning your personal morality.

Yolanda Olson-Susurration

First off, I just need to say how much I love the title. It’s a fun word. Susurration means whispering or murmuring. And it is highly appropriate for this story. Yolanda left me with more questions than she answered, but that’s a very her thing to do. It’s a short story, but it is perfectly done, with enough tension and all.

AA Davies-Unruly

The characters in this aren’t exactly family or in-laws, but they are close. I really liked how the story ended up, and I’m not entirely sure that I would call this one quite as twisted as the others, but it is definitely twisted. I really like Remi though.

JM Walker-Her Little

You remember me saying that some of these are so filthy that I need to take a shower just thinking about them? Well, this would be one of those stories. It really is filthy AF. I mean, yeah. The only thing that dimmed it slightly for me was that I was hoping for some Little action going on, because of the title. I can see where it could lean that way, and overall, I’m not disappointed in it, so there’s that.

Ally Vance-Fragile Vows

Twins. ‘Nuff said. OK, not really. I think that Ally went to an interesting place with this. It didn’t happen quite the way I expected, but I’m not going to complain, because I think her way was better.

Jason Hes-The Scent of Wolves

This is my first Jason Hes story, but I will be seeking more. He dragged me in and left me with wanting so much more, in the very best way. I’m itching for more.

Petra Knox-His Best Interest

I really liked this one. Not necessarily for the sexy bits, although, those were really good, but I thought that Petra did a great job of creating awesome characters in a very short story. That’s a lot harder to do than you might think.

Cole Denton-Secrets

Yeah, this family has so many secrets. So, so, so many secrets. We learn some of them, but I’m pretty sure that there are a lot more somewhere, hiding. I would love to get a continuation in this world. Go Wolverines!

Lee Savino & Lili Zander-Draekon Guardian

Oh, I’m so sad. This is the last of the Drakeon books. Well, the authors have promised us an extended epilogue kind of thing sometime this year, but still, no more books with the smexy dragons, and I love the smexy dragons. So, let’s talk about Draekon Guardian, shall we?

Yafet was known as Sixth, back when he was one of the original Draekon. Now, along with most of his brothers, he’s helping the rebellion and trying to fight their other brother, First, who is more than a little bat shit crazy. Yafet was sent after a couple of humans to rescue them. He brought them both back, but one of them, Liz, was his mate. He’s been trying to put off mating her and staying away from her. It worked really well for a while because he was busy trying to cure a plague. But now, it’s getting harder and harder. He knows that he shouldn’t do anything with her, and the thought that First might get his hands on her is just scary AF. He’s still working with all the medical researchers trying to cure the plague that First has created, because they know that he is going to deploy it again at some point.

Liz knows that she’s attracted to Yafet, but he never comes around her. She just stays in her room, never leaves, and is just terribly depressed, which really, I don’t blame her for. Her roommate manages to pull her out of it and takes her to a market. As a chef and cookbook writer, taking her to a huge market where she can find all kinds of food is the perfect thing for Liz. But, they run into problems at the market, and all her food gets left in a locker. Until it turns out that the food turns up in her apartment along with a new cooking unit.

Liz is dealing with some depression, and frankly, I don’t blame her one little bit. I would definitely be dealing with some serious mental health issues at that point too. Her whole world has changed and trying to deal with everything was just a lot. I think that she is really smart and creative though, and once she finds something to latch on to, then she’s better. And that’s something that she actually did on her own, mostly. I thought that was great for her and her own mental health, and her self-esteem. I think that she is also really fierce and she’s not going to let anyone mess with her, if she can avoid it, at least.

Yafet is definitely a good man. Dragon. Whatever. He has a huge streak of responsibility in him, and he can’t really cut himself any slack. He works really hard so that he can find the cure for this plague and he kind of blames himself. Which, it’s understandable why he does blame himself, even though neither he or any of his brothers have anything to blame themselves for. They were put into a fucking horrible situation by their creator, and the rebels didn’t make a lot of it easier when they first came out of stasis, but the rebels did at least straighten up. I think that he’s really smart and caring. I think that he’s also a little bit stupid. At least when it comes to relationships he is. But, don’t worry, Liz has some lessons for him.

OK, that’s all for this one. I’m going to miss these guys, so I’m looking forward to the epilogue bit. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Jane Henry-Mac

Hot Scottish men? Sign me right up! And Jane delivered with Mac, the second book of her Mountain Men series, covering the Scottish Mafia. And in my imagination, Mac is chopping wood wearing a kilt, in proper Scottish fashion.

So, Mac and his brothers are plotting revenge against their enemies for their actions against Paisley. They have finally decided that what is going to happen is that Mac is going to seduce Brynn, the only daughter of the family, and then ruin her. So, to do that, he’s going to do everything he can to get her to notice him, and he’s going to use all the information that he’s been gathering for months and months against her. So, he manages to “meet” her and then starts to get to know her. He finds out a few things about her that he didn’t know, and arranges to meet her that night.

Meanwhile, Brynn is just trying to live her life and start her fashion design business. She’s keeping it secret from her dad, because she knows that he won;t approve. He’s a huge raging asshole. But, before Brynn and Mac get to go out on their date, her dad tells her that he knows about her business, and she’s betraying him, so he’s giving her an option. He can arrange her marriage to one of his nasty friends. Or, she can seduce Mac and then ruin him.

Interesting set up, right?

So, I like the play of both of them setting out to seduce the other and ruin them, especially when they both realize that the seduction thing is much less than a game and much more real than they expected it to be. It begs the question, how much of seduction is real and how much is fake?

I like Brynn and her creativity. I think that she is really just talented. I also like how loving she appears to be. She was really concerned about how Mac’s family would act about her, but she really drew them to her. Well, except for Mac’s dad, but he’s a prick, so who cares.

I think that Mac might have been a man whore, but he got better. He is very loyal to his family, and will do whatever he needs to do to make sure that they are protected. He seems quite clever and like he can think through a lot of things that could happen so that he can make a plan to handle everything.

And oh, I think that I have figured out who the author in the book is. I can’t wait to see.

OK, that’s all for today. Go check it out! Happy reading!

K Webster-Shift of Morals

There is a collection called the Kingdom of Wolves. They are all about shifters, and they are all standalones. They are not all MM, but some are. Shift of Morals is one of those books. It exists in the same world as K’s Brigg’s Ferry Bay books, and we get to see some of the characters from those books. But, keep in mind, those books are contemporary, and this one is a PNR.

So, we have Cyrus. He is a park ranger at a small park outside of Brigg’s Ferry Bay. He’s also the alpha of a small shifter pack. When I say small, I mean very small. There are only a handful of them. One of the members of his pack is Remy, who has just turned 18. Remy is constantly butting heads with almost everyone in the pack, but most especially Cyrus.

Years ago, Cyrus and his pack found a young boy who was bloodied and torn laying next to his dead and mutilated mother and sister. Remy survived, mostly, but he can’t speak because of throat damage. And a total fuck ton of anger issues. Right now, he wants to have some freedom. He hasn’t gone to school, he doesn’t have a lot of contact with the outside world. Cyrus and the rest of the pack has kept him safe and away from everyone, especially since they don’t know who attacked him. But, that protection makes Remy really angry. He knows why they want to keep him safe, but he wants them to give him some freedom, and I don’t blame him, at 18, you want that.

Some new people move in down the road, and things start to change, including the fact that Cyrus and Remy now are drawn together, strongly.

To be honest, this isn’t my favorite K book. I like the story, I like the premise, and I liked the characters. But, there are a few places that I felt like there were some shortcuts taken that didn’t quite work. I actually have no problem with shortcuts, and there have been plenty of times in which the same kind of shortcuts have worked really well for me, but in this one, I felt like they didn’t work well and they kind of left me blah.

Will I reread this one? Probably. I enjoyed the read and I can understand why K went the route that she did, I think, and as the author that is totally her right. I will never tell an author how they should or shouldn’t write their books. Their books are their art, and I wouldn’t want someone to tell me how to write if I were in their place. All I can do is talk about how I feel about any particular book, and try to do it in a way that doesn’t spoil the book for anyone else.

Anyway, that said…

I like Cyrus, he really is very protective of his entire pack. I like the fact that the pack has this psychic link that keeps them all in touch with each other, because we get to see how connected and caring they all are towards each other, even Remy.

I did want to smack Remy a couple of times, but he’s 18, angry, and kind of stupid. We’re all kind of stupid at 18. Remy does know how bad the world is, but even knowing that he wants to explore his boundaries, and I think that Cyrus should’ve let him do that.

That’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster comes an angst-filled, steamy age-gap MM shifter standalone romance!

***This is the fifth book to release in the Kingdom of Wolves collection but is a COMPLETE STANDALONE. It’s meant to be read on its own and is a full story with a happily ever after.***

I found him when he was a boy.
Bloody. Mangled. Near death.
If I’d been a merciful alpha, I would’ve snapped his neck and ended him right then.

Except, I didn’t.
Something in his big brown eyes tugged at my heart strings.
I kept him. Healed him. Raised him to be fierce, loyal, and brave.

Now that he’s an adult, everything’s changing.
He’s no longer the soft, scared beta I once thought he was.
No, there’s an uncontrollable anger inside him.
A rage-filled hate I don’t understand.

As a dangerous pack begins tormenting us and destroying our home, I feel him pulling from me as he seeks justice.
He thirsts for revenge, even if it means leaving our pack and going solo.
But, as his alpha, I won’t let him go without a fight.

Each time he pushes, I pull him right back to me.
I’ll keep him locked in my arms or pinned beneath me forever if that’s what it takes to keep him.
A shift of morals has begun.
One I don’t understand, but certainly don’t resist.

I’m the most powerful wolf on Beacon Island. I don’t have weaknesses.
Until now.
This wild, reckless young man changed everything when he stole my heart.

This book is a steamy standalone MM age-gap shifter romance. No other books need to be read before or after this one as it is a complete story.
