Hailey Turner-A Veiled & Hallowed Eve

This is the 7th book in Hailey’s Soulbound series, and it is absolutely, positively NOT a standalone. You 110% have to have read the other 6 books in the series before you read A Veiled & Hallowed Eve. I highly recommend this series, I mean, very highly. It’s an MM series that has shifters, dragons, mages, and gods who walk among us. The world that Hailey created is beautiful, deadly, and feels oh so very real.

OK, so we have Patrick. He’s a combat mage who survived a previous god war. Because of damage taken in that war, he is no longer in the military, but works for a branch of the government now. It’s like the FBI, but for supernatural things. He’s based in NYC, with his boyfriend, wolf shifter Jono.

The past 6 books have been one battle after another. Each book has had its own unique battle, but they are all tied together in one overall storyline. And now, we have come to the end. I am going to be very careful with spoilers here, because pretty much everything I say could be a spoiler, so the synopsis is going to be really broad. Go read the books, trust me, all the ins and outs are worth it.

It’s nearly Samhain, the day that the veil between this world and all others is thinnest. It’s also the time that the Dominion Sect is going to make their big move. It has to be Samhain when it happens, because the bad guy wants to turn himself into a god and bring all the hells to Earth, and the hell dimensions will be closer that day.

Jono and Patrick are both exhausted. They’ve been fighting for such a long time, and right now they are fighting a war of attrition against hunters and demons. And it’s still weeks until the big day.

I really like Patrick and Jono, together and apart. Patrick is a very good man who has had a bunch of shit handed to him in his relatively short life. He’s been taught and trained as a weapon, and been used as that for the majority of his life. He’s self-sacrificing and the majority of the higher powers and authorities in his life have taken advantage of that fact. People have lied to and for him for most of his life. There are reasons why many of those lies have been told, but that doesn’t mean that the truth isn’t going to hurt him when if/when he finds out about it. I understand the reasoning behind why they have done what they have done, but it doesn’t mean that they ever had Patrick’s best interests at heart. Frankly, I think that there is only one adult in Patrick’s younger life who had his interests at heart, and I think that person kept him centered as much as they were able to.

Then there’s Jono. Jono will always make sure that he has Patrick’s best interests first. He will make sure that Patrick will take care of himself even if he doesn’t want to. Jono makes Patrick a better person, in all the best ways. Jono’s life hasn’t been perfect, but he had a better start than Patrick, and he’s determined to make sure that Patrick knows how valued and valuable he is and how much he is loved. Jono is a loving, caring person, who is very loyal to his friends. He will make decisions based on that loyalty so that he can protect those who are important to him. I think that he and Patrick really complement each other quite well.

I have loved every book in this series. They have all kept me right on the edge of my seat, and I gobbled them up. I was really sad to see this series end, because of just how good it was. Because we follow one main couple and their friends and family through the whole series, we really get to know Patrick, Jono, and all their associates.

This one has a lot going on. But it’s not an overwhelming, even though there is a lot of action. It does nicely tie everything up in a very satisfying way. When I was done reading it, I just sighed a very happy sigh, because I was really happy with what happened.

Blurb:

Mirabella Rousseau is on the run, sailing with her cousin from the Caribbean to France to escape an arranged marriage. Posing as Gaspard’s male servant offers a measure of protection until their ship is captured by the infamous pirate, Captain Giorgio Baretti.

When Giorgio and his first mate, Paolo Serra, learn Mirabella’s true identity, they quickly claim her for themselves, determined to make her pay for her uncle’s sins. Sworn enemies of Henri Allard, Giorgio and Paulo intend to bend his orphaned niece to their will, forcing her to share their bed whilst trying to uncover the secrets that she keeps.

Learning that Mirabella holds the key to the treasure map in Giorgio’s possession changes everything. Flung into a dangerous adventure of betrayal, passion, risk, and redemption, they must hazard all they hold dear to save themselves—including the young woman who has somehow touched their cold pirate hearts.

This swashbuckling historical ménage is written with dark humor, a murder mystery, and a dash of intrigue, replete with nods to modern pop culture. Fans of The Princess Bride will appreciate that Bound by the Pirate King began as a fictional novel in a fictional novel whose heroine had a taste for lurid literature and pirate play.

Written with heat, humor, and possible triggers for Ages 18+.

Kay Elle Parker-Walk For Me

This is the 4th book in Kay’s Club Avalon series. It’s also her very first Daddy book. And if anything, I think that Walk For Me shows that Kay should just write some more Daddy books, because this one was really good. So, let’s talk about Alicia and Atticus. This can be read as a standalone, there’s no real big overall storyline like in some series, but there is stuff discussed in this book that happens in previous books.

After the events in the last book, Alicia has been put into a residential facility because her mental health ain’t great, Connie has melted down and is putting herself back together, and Bodie has a high risk pregnancy that means she can’t give Lisha the care that she needs. All the Masters get together and find this facility that’s supposed to be top of the line, and Alicia will be getting all kinds of help. It’s only supposed be temporary, but events happen that made that temporary time a little longer. Now it’s been months, and no one has talked to or seen Alicia in quite some time. Atticus is done with it. He’s going to go in and talk to Alicia and tell her that she needs to at least talk to Connie.

When Atticus gets into the facility, he finds out that it isn’t anywhere near what his investigator said it was like. In fact, it is so far away from what they thought it was that it might as well be on a different planet. Alicia is laying in her own filth, has had her head shaved, can’t get to her wheelchair, and is starving. Worse, she’s accepted that she’s going to die soon, and has stopped fighting. Then in comes Atticus. He sees her, grabs her out of her bed, and puts her into her wheelchair. Then he gets mean, not to Alicia, but to everyone else. He calls the cops, the state, everyone he can call, because she isn’t the only patient there in shit shape.

Atticus takes her to his house, where he already has a space that he has remodeled for her and her needs. Then he calls everyone to let them know what has happened and starts taking care Alicia.

OK, I really didn’t like Alicia in the last book. But, that’s more about all the circumstances surrounding what was going on with Connie and how Connie’s and Lisha’s issues were feeding into each other. I know that Connie thinks that she’s Wonder Woman, but I don’t think that she had enough bandwidth to handle Lisha’s stuff then. She tried though. And she really bonded with Alicia, so that’s all good. As we learn more about Alicia in this book, I really liked her more. Frankly, I’m glad that she killed her parents, because they really, really needed to die. And for more than what we already knew. My youngest brother was a wheelchair user, and some of what we learn about Alicia’s past made me really angry, because I know how vulnerable people with disabilities can be.

I really do like her a lot more now. I do think that she really grew a lot during this book, and a lot of that is down to Atticus, but she learned her own strength in this and in her own value. I think that she might still need to have some growth, but she done good.

Atticus is such a Daddy. He wants to Daddy everyone, up to and including all the other Masters. He’s a merc in his real life, but frankly, even that could be seen as result of his Daddy-ness. I mean, seriously, he’s a Daddy. He really is a good man, even if he has to do someone bad things on occasion, and yup, he does that. I pretty much fell right in love with Atticus when we first met him.

This book really did break me at times. There are some places where it is really hard to read, and it did make me cry. But, the thing is, it put me back together too. Yeah, I cried, but then I would read how much Atticus loved Alicia and what he would say to her, and then I felt like I was all wrapped up in that love too.

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

K. Webster-Dragon

K is back with her newest RBMC book. This is a MM book. The previous 2 are MF. You don’t strictly have to read the other two before reading Dragon, but I would definitely recommend it, because you are going to have a better understanding of what is going on in this book. OTOH, if you just want to read a hot MM story that is really intense, this is definitely the one to read.

So, Cove and his twin sister were rescued in the last book. Cove has decided that he’s now going to prospect with the RBMC. It’s the only place where he feels safe now, and his older sister is already associated with the MC. Cove is gay, and there are a lot of really nice looking guys around. He sort of fools around with a guy named Nick, but that’s coming to an end. Then, there’s Dragon. Cove is pretty sure that he hates Dragon and that Dragon hates him. But, there’s just something about Dragon that keeps pulling Cove’s attention. Cove is totally aware of when Dragon is around, because there is just that draw.

Dragon has been through some seriously fucked up shit in his life. It has broken him. He is totally a different person than he was when he was a teenager, in the before times. His family thinks he’s dead, Dragon thinks that it’s better that they do, but he keeps track of them anyway. Dragon is the go to man when the RBMC needs to have some seriously fucked up shit done. He doesn’t want to have a relationship, but then there is Cove, Baby Prospect, BP. He doesn’t want to want Cove, but he’s just fascinated by him.

When the two of them get pulled together, with this seriously massive magnetic pull, it really is intense. They are really good together, and their relationship is just really intense, just the two of them together. Dragon is one of those people who has a very intense focus, and when he focuses in on Cove, it’s obvious and wow.

The overall story is a continuation of what we’ve been seeing, but ramped up times 1000. Mostly that’s because Dragon is so involved in the beginnings. In fact, he really is the beginning of the story. Or at least when the RBMC comes into it. And that’s what broke him. He really does have a huge dose of PTSD, which, well, yeah, he would.

I actually do like Dragon. Yeah, he’s more than a little fucked up, and he has a really messed up POV on life because of what happened to him as a teenager, but he is also incredibly loyal to his brothers, both the RBMC and his actual blood. He doesn’t go to see his family, because he doesn’t want his darkness to touch them, but he does keep track of them and wants to make sure that they are safe. I think that if he ever heard that his family was in trouble, he would be there to fix the problem. He probably wouldn’t let them see him, because Dragon doesn’t think that he really deserves any love or anything good in his life. But I really do like him so much. There is just something about him.

Cove may not have had the same kind of fuckedupness that Dragon does, but he does have his own issues. And again, I don’t blame him, he went through some stuff too. A good therapist would make bank dealing with this chapter. I like Cove too. He does still have a little of that new guy shine on him, which does make him a little naive sometimes, but not a whole lot. OK, naive may not be the right word. It may be more like he’s still new and is still learning the ropes, so sometimes he trips up.

Dragon is definitely my favorite of K’s RBMC books. When I was done reading it, I just kind of sat in a sort of shook silence. It was very intense and I just had to catch my breath from it. I had a hard time starting a new book until the next day, because this one was just so much in my head.

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

Nicolina Martin-Restraining Reeba

Nicolina is back with her West Coast Doms in Restraining Reeba. We met Reeba back in Sandra’s book, and now she has her own, and I’m totally here for it.

So, we have Reeba, who is working with her burlesque group and filming a documentary for Sandra. Reeba owes part of the club she’s working at, and her goal is to eventually own all of it. Right now, she’s in business with her ex, Fabian, and she doesn’t really like that part at all, but he’s a necessary evil, at least for right now.

Samuel, who is Sandra’s man, calls his buddy Ryder, trying to get him to go in and buy part of the club. Ryder isn’t here for it, but he does go and watch the show, and there is something that is totally awesome about that show. That would be the woman in charge, with electric blue hair, Reeba.

One day, when Reeba gets bitten by a spider, and ends up at the ER. When she goes into the club for rehearsal that night, it turns out that she has been having all kinds of accidents lately. If you didn’t look at them altogether, you might think that they are all coincidences, but when you look at them altogether, it shows that it’s a pattern. So, Samuel and Ryder decide that they will watch her. And well, by watch, I mean that Ryder kidnaps her.

Reeba is fucking fierce. She is independent, ambitious, talented, and driven. She sings, she dances, and she wants to own the club, and she’s going to make it happen. She’s also not worried about telling someone what she thinks. Frankly, I’m surprised that she didn’t outright gut Ryder at times. Or at least kick him in his balls. He deserved it sometimes, I think. I do like that she is so determined to do what she wants to do. But even with being as driven as she is, she is willing to listen and try to stay away from the trouble following her. It took a hot minute for it to settle in, but no one really wants to think that there are people trying to kill them. Reeba also fiercely loves, she has such a great heart. She’s just generally a good person.

When it comes to Nicolina’s heroes, I quite often dislike them at the start, and it takes me time to warm up to them, or there is a point where I really hate them. (I’m looking squarely at you, Christian.) There is only one of her heroes that I don’t like at all, but that isn’t Ryder. I like Ryder from the very beginning. There is something really broken and vulnerable about him. I mean, most of the guys in this series are broken in some way, but I think it’s closer to the surface in him than it is in other guys. I don’t know what it is. I kinda wanted to just take him home, and hug him, and love him, and pet him. I can understand where his choices are coming from, and they make sense coming from his background. I mean, they aren’t necessarily legal or anything, but they make sense.

I can’t wait for Felix’s book. I’m kinda mad at him right now.

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

Blurb – 

Sentenced to death and left out in the bitter cold, Lyra is rescued by a mysterious spirit. Transported to the Winter Court, she finds herself the attention of its fiercely handsome warrior king.

Nick has ruled over the elves under his care for centuries, protecting all of existence from the wrath of the Pale Lady and her deadly frozen touch. When a beautiful Fae is dumped into his lap by Jack Frost, he isn’t amused.

With his enemy’s horde on the move, he has no time for distractions. Fate, though, has other ideas, forging an undeniable desire neither of them can resist.

Seeds of doubt are cast and Nick plays into the hands of his nemesis. With the help of his shifter sons and an army of elves, he’s ready to use lethal force and every ounce of his formidable skills to save the woman he loves.

*The Yuletide King is the first book in the Legend Keepers series which brings a fresh steamy twist to folklore and fables. It can be enjoyed as a standalone with no cliff-hanger. 

Kit Rocha-The Devil You Know

It is a known fact that I love Kit Rocha books. The two talented ladies behind the books have written some of the most aggressively feminist books I’ve ever read, really well balanced with strong female characters and strong male characters. The Beyond books, which I often describe as fucking to save the world, is dystopic and post-apocalyptic. The Mercenary Librarian series, which is so far only 2 books, The Devil You Know is the second, takes place in the same world as those books, but in Atlanta, instead of out West, like the Beyond books. You don’t have to have read the Beyond books to know what is going on in this series, but you do need to read the Mercenary Librarians in order.

Our prime couple in this book are Maya and Gray. They have both been modified by Techcorps. Gray has had implants put in his brain and was turned into a super soldier and sniper. That’s why he’s one of the members of the Silver Devils. Maya’s brain has been messed with, and she has perfect recall. PERFECT. RECALL. As in, if she had a lover who was tortured in front of her, she would never be able to forget it. She was used as a data courier by one of the VPs of Techcorps. The VP, Birgitte, put all of her secrets into Maya’s head. Everything is in Maya’s head, including the revolution that Birgitte was fomenting. When Birgitte was “promoted”, Maya escaped Techcorps, faked her death, and met Nina and Dani.

Now, years after that, her little group of friends has swelled from just Nina and Dani to also include the Silver Devils, including Gray. She’s always totally aware of Gray. She likes him, but she’s worried. That’s because for most of her life, Maya has been told that data couriers’ brains will basically break down because of all the stimulation that gets absorbed into their brains. She works really hard at keeping the stimulation low so that she doesn’t waste any of the time that she has left. But Gray. He tempts her so much. She wants him. She likes him.

Gray has his own secrets. One of them is that his implants are failing. His life is counted in months, if not weeks. But he has such strong feelings for Maya. He really wants to get closer to her, but he doesn’t really want to leave her and he really doesn’t want her to fall in love with him and then have to suffer after his death. But there’s just something about her. He has to be around her, protect her, and help her. In fact, he trains her in a new technique that Maya ends up being really good at, and loving a lot.

I really like both of these characters. They are both really strong. They each have their own weaknesses, I mean, they are human. No human is perfect, not even super soldiers. The thing is, neither Gray nor Maya take advantage of the other’s weaknesses. Instead, they prop each other up in those weak places. They each help the other be a better them. They don’t make each other complete, because both Maya and Gray are complete on their own, but what they do is make the other more. It’s like 1+1=2.5, not just 2. They are better together than they are apart. And I think that is beautiful. That is one of the things that I really like about Kit’s books. Yes, the characters have growth to do, and they might not be the healthiest, mentally, but each character is complete in themselves, or is becoming that way. They don’t need to have a partner to complete themselves, and the relationships make each person better, not whole. Does that make sense? It really does in my head.

The romance in this one is a slow burn, but it fits for Maya and Gray. The story, though, that isn’t a slow burn. We do get glimpses into other people’s heads, with their own chapters. I really like that, because it does let us see more of what is going on. I can’t wait for the next book. It’s going to be so good.

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