Golden Angel-A Season for Scandal

Golden is back with another Regency era spanko book. A Season for Scandal is the second book in the Deception and Discipline series, which all focus on a group of 4 friends, who are all either debutantes or that age. This book is Josie’s.

Josie has been madly in love with Joseph Stuart for years. He, however, is going to get engaged to someone else, so she has been dealing with that all Season. She’s been lauded as a Diamond of the First Water and an Original, which all means she’s really pretty, charming, witty, and a prime catch. She’s also sneaky, working with her friends Mary, Lily, and Evie, trying to catch a spy. Evie is the niece of the spymaster of England, who also happens to be Joseph’s father. She knows things, and is currently undercover, and tasks her friends to find things out for her.

One night, at a ball, Josie gets a note that purports to be from Joseph, asking her to come meet him out in the garden, he needs her help with a mistake. She thinks that he’s going to tell her that he made a mistake and is madly in love with her, and they are going to get married. Instead, what happens is some man attacks her and rips her clothes. Elijah, Joseph’s older brother, sees it happening, and goes to rescue her. Right before the society gossips run out, totally ruining Josie altogether.

Elijah, when he gets home, talks to his brothers and his father, and makes a decision. He decides that he wants Joseph to be happy with the woman he loves, so when Josie’s father comes to the house to see what’s going to happen, Elijah says that he will marry her and make it right.

Elijah assists his father in his spying, and he doesn’t see any reason that being married to Josie is going to slow him down. After all, he’s not going to stand for any of her nonsense, and it’s not like this is a real marriage anyway. (Famous last words, right?)

Josie and her friends have the right idea, you know. People always underestimate women. They definitely did then. These ladies are more than what they seem, and people only see little bits of fluff who look pretty and act like they don’t have a thought in their heads except fashion. And there is nothing wrong with being that person, you do you. That’s what Josie and her friends want everyone to think, though. I do like Josie. I do think she might be a little impetuous, but she does it out of the good of her heart. She wants to do the right thing, which is to stop the trait0r.

I kind of wanted to smack Elijah off and on during the book. He made some annoying choices. I can understand why he made the choices that he did, but that doesn’t make them any less annoying. I think, partly, that he is a man of his time, so he doesn’t see beyond what he expects to see, even though he’s known Josie for many years. That’s part of why I wanted to smack him. He is a good man though, and a determined one. He is also honorable.

I have a sneaking suspicion that I know someone who is in on the plot.

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

BLURB:
She always dreamed of marrying a Stuart brother. Just not the one who meets her at the altar.

When scandal sweeps through London’s ballrooms, Lord Elijah Stuart’s younger brother is caught in its web. Though his main duty is to England’s spymaster, Elijah must forsake his work searching for the traitor to the Crown and instead focus on weddings and reputations. With both the family honor and his brother’s future at stake, Elijah dutifully takes the ruined Miss Josephina Pennyworth for his very reluctant bride.

Furious at the circumstances leading her to be wed to the wrong Stuart brother, Josephina clashes immediately with her bossy new husband. She is every bit as invested in the search for the traitor as Lord Stuart and she is no shrinking violet when it comes to danger. While Josie discovers certain aspects of married life are quite pleasurable, she doesn’t permit them to distract her from her mission. As she tests her husband’s patience and the boundaries of her new life, the threat lurking in the shadows grows larger and places more lives in peril. Who among them will survive?

Nia Farrell & Claire Marta-Blue

Nia and Claire have just released the newest Guarded Hearts book, Blue. This is the second book in the Hell’s Fury MC books. These guys are still gargoyles, but they mate singly, instead of in pairs like the original guys. And being an MC, they are a lot freer than the original guys. So, let’s talk about Maverick and Blue. If you haven’t read these books, you will be lost when you read this, because a lot of stuff is referenced and you won’t be sure what is going on.

So, Maverick saw Blue, a wolf shifter, fighting in an underground match a few months ago, and there has just been something about her that he has been drawn to since. He can’t get her out of his mind. When his brothers have to go on a rescue mission to save the mother of another brother’s mate, Maverick goes along. He’s there to help rescue Maria, the mother, but he is also going to rescue Blue, although no one knows that except him. He’s set up a cell in the basement, next to the one that Lilith has been staying in. Maverick has done what he can to make it all nice and homey, but still, it’s a cell in the basement. He finds Blue, sedates her, and brings her to his clubhouse. Which of course, pisses off his Prez, which ends up with him getting punished by having to be a bouncer at their bar.

Meanwhile, Blue wakes up in a cell, in a strange place, with a strange man looking at her. He tells her she’s safe, but the jackals who owned her before have spent too many years mistreating her for her to trust anyone. The only good thing is that Maria, who has kind of acted like a mother to her is right there with her. There are a whole lot of bad things, primarily the fact that her twin brother, who the jackals also run as an underground fighter and pimp out as necessary, isn’t there. He wasn’t at the clubhouse when Blue and Maria were rescued, he was out on a fight. All she can think about is the physical pain she’s in and the fact that her twin isn’t there, and she needs to get him. Maverick keeps telling her that he will save her brother for her, but she doesn’t trust him. He’s another biker, after all, and bikers lie.

I think that Maverick was a little Pollyanna Sunshine about what was going to happen. I think that he was also a little naive about some things. He really did everything with a good heart and with good motives, but I don’t think that he necessarily thought about everything that was going to happen. I just don’t think that he was prepared to handle Blue’s feelings, and how everything that has happened to her in the past has formed who she is right now. I think that he kind of pushed her too much at times. Like I said, I think that he did it with all the best intentions, but you can still fuck up and cause damage with all the best intentions.

I don’t blame Blue for not trusting anyone except Maria. I wouldn’t either. She’s basically been through hell, and now she’s been “rescued”, but she’s still in a cell. I mean, she doesn’t stay there all the time, but it’s long enough. Then there’s what her wolf does and how Maverick reacts to it. I was kinda mad at her wolf part because of that, because it’s not OK. And I thought that Maverick should’ve acted differently about it.

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

Blurb:

When Blue is ripped out of the only world she’s ever known by the Hell’s Fury MC, she’s anything but grateful. For years, she and her twin Romulus have been forced to fight underground matches for the Death’s Head MC. Suspicious of the men who rescued her from their abusive handlers, the she-wolf shifter thinks the bikers are after something. Especially the tall, dark, handsome one with heat-filled eyes who can’t seem to leave her alone.

Maverick has observed the beautiful warrior every fight he’s seen her in. After rescuing her from captivity, he discovers a woman filled with distrust and hidden pain. When an intimate encounter triggered by her wolf side forges an unexpected bond between them, he recognizes too late that Blue is his fated mate.

The trouble is, Blue wants nothing to do with him. Hoping to win her over, Maverick intends to rescue Romulus after his next fight. He doesn’t know that Blue intends to free her twin brother sooner. With trouble brewing, it will take more than a prayer to come out alive.

Hell’s Fury MC: Blue is an enemies-to-lovers MC romance with adult situations and potential triggers, written for Ages 18+.

Excerpt:

The doctor turned his back while she got dressed. With nothing else to wear, Blue slipped into the sweat pants Maverick had loaned her and his shirt.

Not wanting to appear feeble, she walked to the door on trembling legs only to fall when Doc opened it for her. Bracing herself to hit the floor, she felt a pair of arms wrap around her instead.

Not Doc.

Maverick.

He’d moved so fast, she’d barely seen it. Protesting when he scooped her up into his arms, she wasn’t surprised when he ignored her growls.

“What’s going on?” Maverick demanded to know.

“Blue wants to return to the basement,” the doctor informed him. “And I think it’s for the best.”

The biker’s brow furrowed. “But…”

“Basement,” she snarled, refusing to stay in his room any longer.

Pressing his lips together in annoyance, he didn’t say another word as he carried her along the corridor.

Blue was finding it hard to breathe. Maverick smelled so different than the males she was used to. No booze or tobacco smoke clinging to his skin. He didn’t reek of sweat or sex. He was all cedar and sage and clean, manly musk. She’d gotten a double whammy of it earlier when he draped his Dread Monkeys hooded jacket over her shoulders to keep her from cooling down too fast. And a triple whammy when he’d swept her up in his arms just now to carry her back to her cell.

With her nose buried in his neck and her inner wolf panting, it was all she could do not to lick him and see if he tasted as good as he smelled.

Eris Adderly-The Mortal Coil

Before I start this review, I have 3 facts to tell you. 1) I love, love, love Greek mythology. 2) I’ve been playing a lot of Hades, so I knew who Asterion was before he explained himself in the book. 3) I had to live with The Mortal Coil for a couple of days before I could talk about it. I had feelings and thoughts to process about it.

So, this is the story of Perseus and Medousa. (Note, if you see familiar names spelled oddly, I’m spelling them the way that Eris did, and since she’s the Greek goddess of strife and discord, let’s go with it.) Now, in the myth, Perseus slew Medousa, and used her head to petrify the Kraken, and save Andromeda. But, that would probably be a short book if that’s what happened here.

We open with Medousa laying broken on the stairs to one of Grey Eyed Athena’s temples. She’s just been raped by Poseidon Pelagaios. She tells Poseidon that she was never his prize and she told him to stop. But, yeah, he doesn’t go for that. He did the whole you were gagging for it thing. When he leaves, Medousa curses him, whereupon Athena appears. Medousa appeals to Athena and says look what happened to me on your stairs. She wants vengeance. Medousa asks the goddess to let her turn men into stone, and the goddess agrees, but exacts a price, Medousa’s wings and immortality. (Note the second, the Gorgon sisters had wings, snake bodies from the waist down, and snakes for hair, and they can turn into a woman.)

Fast forward many years, we have Perseus, Son of Olympos. His father is Zeus, his mother is Danae of Argos. Zeus appeared as a shower of gold, knocked up Danae, whose father locked her in a chest with her baby, and then threw them in the sea. We meet Perseus when he is fighting the Kêtos, so that he can rescue Andromeda. He can’t take her to her home, since her father is the one who had her pinned out for the Kêtos to eat. Perseus was going to take her to a friend, but the friend can’t take her. While they are the friend’s location, a man tries to rape Andromeda, but is turned to stone by the Bane of Men. Then Andromeda is invited to an island where there are no men, where she can be safe. She chooses to go to with Perseus, who decides that he’s going to take her to his mom and to the man he considers his father, Diktys.

When they get to Perseus’ home, it turns out that the king, Polydektes, has taken Danae and has held her for weeks. Perseus goes to the palace to get it, but then he finds out that Polydeketes, who probably should be named Poly-dick, isn’t going to give her up, and he’s planning on marrying her. He tells Perseus that the only way to get her back is to bring him the head of the Bane of Men, Medousa the Gorgon. As he’s walking out, Asterion runs after him. Polydektes sent Asterion to go with Perseus, so he can bring back Perseus’ dead body. We also find out that these two guys are cousins, and Asterion wants to help Perseus.

There is a lot that goes into this book, a lot that happens, and there are a lot of things that were really painful to read sometimes. While we don’t see all of Medousa’s rape, we see the end of it, and we also get to see the fall out from it, and really experience the raw emotions of Medousa afterwards. We also get to see her emotions, thoughts, and actions over the years after the rape.

Perseus is neither a bad man or a good man. He has a lot of good and some bad in him, which makes him very much just a man. I think that he’s honorable, at least by his standards of honor. I also think that in a lot of places, he’s very much a man of his times, and he doesn’t get all that introspective all that often. He’s a mercenary, he’s relatively good at it, and he wants to be seen as Perseus, not Son of Olympos, or Golden Son, or Destroyer.

I like the way that Perseus changes over the story. I think that he truly becomes a better person through his journey. He grows, a lot, and thinks about a lot of things that he experiences during the story and looks at his past through new eyes.

Medousa has a very similar journey, I think. She is extremely honorable. She has developed rules that she follows scrupulously, even when her sister Sthenno, who is more than a little bloodthirsty, urges Medousa to break all her rules. But, she won’t, because while Athena told her to rule herself after the curse was placed upon her, the only person holding Medousa to that is herself. I liked watching her questioning her mind, her actions, and her behaviors.

Like I said, I love Greek mythology, and I love how Eris handles the mythology in this book. I think that she is pretty close to the myth, but in another way, she’s really far away from it. Which sounds really weird, but it really does work. She also really makes the myths human and accessible, and gives them a real explanation vs. what the myth says, if that makes sense. For example, we get Asterion’s story. He’s the Minotaur, and we find out what really happened when he was conceived. The myth is that his mother was so enamored of a sacred bull of Poseidon that had been given to her husband, King Minos, that she gets Daedalus to make a hollow cow for her to hide in, and she entices the bull. Of course, the story is different when Asterion tells it.

I’ve always kind of had a soft spot for Medousa. I think that she got a raw deal from history. I honestly cannot tell you how much I love Eris’ take on the Medousa and Perseus story, because I think that she finally gets what she deserves. It also kind of just turns the whole myth on its head, which is always good.

If you like Greek mythology, or just love an incredibly strong female character, you need to read this book. I can’t do it justice in my review. There is just so much in the book that it would take me days and days and days to talk about it. I can say that Perseus and Medousa are going to live in my head for a good long time, and that’s a good thing.

So, go check it out! Happy reading!

This is my favorite statue of Medousa. She’s supposed to be holding Perseus’ head, as a reversal of the famous statue of Perseus holding her head. Instead, I prefer to think that she’s holding Poseidon’s head, and has gotten her vengeance against him.

Medusa With the Head of Perseus

Felicity Brandon-Doctored

This is the 3rd book in Felicity’s Men of Honor series. The series, or at least the ones with Alice, have a very heavy Alice in Wonderland vibe. Doctored is an Alice book, and her partner is Dr. Oscar Hatton, who has a hat habit, and is also known as the Mad Hatter.

Here is a quick history of the story. The Men of Honor aren’t actually all that honorable. They are a huge crime network. Oscar is the doctor of the bunch, and he makes sure that everyone is as healthy as possible. Alice is an MI5 agent who was sent in to shut him down. Only Oscar and his buddy, the head of his group knew who she was when she came in, and they took her. And she became Oscar’s.

So, this one starts off some time after the first book, in which Alice was captured. She’s been the Mad Hatter’s captive, and he has kept her tied up, bound, gagged, and done all kinds of deliciously dirty things to her. She likes it, but she tries really hard not to, because she’s supposed to fight to get free of him, and she’s still trying to keep her eyes open for ways to escape, because as an MI5 agent, that’s what she’s supposed to do.

Oscar leaves her tied up, but she manages to get out, and is waiting for him when he comes back. She kicks the fuck out of him, and escapes his room, stark ass naked, whereupon the Cheshire cat helps her escape and she makes it back to MI5.

I like Alice. I do think that she has a real stubborn streak, and I think that is a good thing, at least part of the time. It has served her well in the past, and helped her get to where she is in MI5. But, I think that there are times that she isn’t helped much by the stubborn streak, but it is hard to turn that off. I do think that she also has a bit of a blind spot, at least when it comes to MI5. I want to say that she’s naïve, but I’m really not sure that naïve is the right word for it. But the flavor is there, at least.

Oscar doesn’t have the same issue, but I think that he has some blindness of his own. Or maybe some obliviousness. I think that it is going to be interesting to see what happens with him and Alice. I think there are going to be some really interesting things happening.

OK, that’s all for this one. Happy reading!

Anna Edwards-Banishing Regrets

Ok, first, yeah, I still live. Life is still interesting in my section of Maine. I don’t think that will ever change. What can I say?

Anyway, let’s talk about Anna’s newest book, Banishing Regrets. This is the last book in the Glacial Blood series, and I’m so sad to see it go. I’ve fallen in love with all the characters and was intrigued by the story. Anna saved the best for last, and gave us Kas and Jane’s story. We’ve seen bits and pieces of the story over the series, but now we get the whole thing.

We open up in the past, with a younger Jane and Kas. We get to see bits of Kas training with his grandfather, who, as we know, is not a very nice guy. Evil grandfather doesn’t have the pack’s best interests at heart. When Kas is done with his grandfather, he walks out and meets Jane. He realizes that she’s his life mate, which would be all well and good, if she wasn’t already in a relationship with his best friend. Kas decides that he’s going to just never be with anyone if he can’t be with this woman that he’s supposed to be with.

Fast forward to the present time, Jane’s husband died years ago, saving their son. Kas killed his grandfather, also years ago. And Kas’ insane twin brother Nuka is working really hard to kill all the humans in the world.

Jane and Kas have decided that it’s finally their time, and they aren’t going to avoid being with each other anymore. Yes, their world may be ending, and terrible things might be happening, but they love each other, and they have waited for so long, and they’re done waiting.

While that’s happening, Nuka and Team Evil are doing all kinds of evil things, including leaving shifter bodies where they can be found. One body gets autopsied on TV, and the governments of the world have decided that they are going to isolate all the shifters to a place in Africa. I can really see a polar bear like Kas working well in Africa.

I have always liked Kas. He is a good man, and one who has done everything he can to take care of his people and to protect them. He’s been put into a place where he has to save not just his pack, but all the supernaturals in the world. He has so much pressure on his shoulders, and until now, he’s been doing it all on his own. He’s had to make some really hard decisions, and he has even more coming up.

Jane hasn’t had a bad life. She’s had her son, and Kas has always been there to help her, but she lost her husband, who was a good man. She’s seen her son be happy, and seen him be really stressed out. Their pack is as strong as it can be, even though there is so much stress and terrible stuff going on outside. She does what she can to make sure that the pack, especially her son, his wife, and Kas stay as strong as possible. I think that she’s a really strong character, and she is really a necessary part of the Glacial Blood pack, even if she isn’t a shifter or supernatural.

We get to see little glimpses into the lives of some of the other characters that we’ve come to know and love during the series. We get to see how they are handling the stress and what they think they should do. Those are pretty short chapters, and I think that they worked really well in the flow of the story.

Overall, I thought this was a great way to end this series, and I really am sad to see it go.

Sara Fields-Wild

A while back, Sara released the newest book of her Alpha’s Brotherhood series, Wild. So, let’s get into the book and see what’s happening in her omegaverse, shall we?

We have Revna. She’s an omega with beautiful purple eyes. She’s been living in the woods for years, hunting and just wanting to be left alone. Revna has to hide there, because every time something goes wrong in a town she’s living in, she gets blamed because people think that she’s a witch because of her eyes. It doesn’t help that her house burned down when she was a child. So, she lives in the woods, away from all the people she can, happy in her peace. Right up until the Recruiter shows up. He captures her using a trap, ties her up, tosses her over his saddle, and takes her to a walled city that no one knows about. He has plans for her, and he’s pretty sure that she’s the chosen one that the city is looking for.

Then we have Ivar. He’s one of the Alpha Brotherhood. He has been sent to follow the Recruiter by his boss, The Ghost, who, BTW, is 5998790 steps ahead of everyone else. Ivar sees the Recruiter trap the omega and keep her. There’s something about her that he is really drawn to. He knows that he has to follow the Recruiter and that he can’t rescue her, but it’s killing him a little bit to leave her in the hands of the evil Recruiter. He needs to find out what is going on so that he can report back to his boss. They need to stop the bad guys, and they aren’t going to be able to do that without knowing what’s happening. So, Ivar dresses up in various costumes and works his way up to the fortress. Then he finds Revna, and boom.

I like Revna. I think that she is really fierce, smart, and strong. She is a fighter in her own right. She tries to fight Ivar, which might not be the smartest thing that she’s ever done, but she does it. She does it because she doesn’t feel like she has any other choice. She doesn’t want an alpha, so she fights him. That spirit will do her good in the future, I think.

Ivar is a very good man. He may have to do some bad things, but that doesn’t make him bad. He wants to help save the world, and saving Revna lets him do that, in so many ways. I mean, it’s not like he saves her because it will help him save everyone. He saves her because he wants her and has all the feelz for her, the fact that she can stand by his side is just an added bonus. I think that they are a wonderful couple, and I really look forward to seeing what happens with the rest of the series.

Kay Elle Parker-Talk For Me

Somehow, and this is a total tragedy, I managed to miss putting this blog post out when Talk for Me came out. I suppose I need to visit Club Avalon and throw myself on the mercy, imagined or non-existant, of the Doms. Threaten a girl with a good time, right? But this is Connie’s book, and I am very happy with it.

Connie has been trying to keep everyone as sane as possible. The past couple of years have been really hard on her group of friends, and she’s trying to help out everyone and their sister. Domme Connie has fallen by the wayside, because she had to let her two boys go, since she couldn’t give them what they needed. She has Dommed anyone in far too long, and it’s itchy inside her. On top of that, she’s carrying a secret, which isn’t making things any easier.

The thing is, Atticus knows her secret. Then again, Atticus knows EVERYTHING. He knows what Connie needs, and right now what she needs is to have someone Top her. You see, she’s a switch, and she has been keeping her subby side under wraps. She has a very good reason for that, but there it is. Atticus is going to bring her into a room and make her let go. If she doesn’t then she isn’t going to really survive.

Thane is new to town and new to Avalon. On his first visit, he saw a woman who fascinated him. Now, on this visit, he sees her again. And maybe follows her and the Dom who takes her into the other room, just a little bit. He wants to know what is going on with her, and he’d like to spend some quality time with her. In this case, following her worked out to his benefit, because Atticus has a discussion with him. Then Atticus introduces him to Connie. They are perfect for each other. They are both switches, and they can help each other meet all their needs.

I highly approve of Thane. He is really sure of who he is and he has no problem with being a switch and submitting to Connie when she needs it or having her submit to him, when necessary. He also has no problem acting as her sub in public so that no one knows her secret, if she wants him to. I like that he really sees Connie, in a way that no one else has seemed to be able to do. Not just that, he is able to get into her head and break down her walls better than anyone else has been able to do, even those who have known her for decades. I think that part of that is that he has a fresh eye and doesn’t have that long relationship, so he can really dig in.

Connie is literally my favorite character in this series, so to see her deteriorate over the past books has hurt my heart. I cried several times reading this because of how much she has gone through and is going through. She is so strong. But that is part of her problem too. She has a hard time asking for help because she wants to be strong for everyone. Connie doesn’t want to let anyone see any weakness in her. She is acting as everyone’s rock, and a crack in the rock is a problem. If she were to break down, it would be spectacular. I am so glad that Thane found her and she found Thane.

I can’t wait for the next book.

Alison Aimes-Savage Prince

Alison has brought us an outer space alien omegaverse story with Savage Prince. This isn’t Alison’s first time here, but I think that the other book I have from her wasn’t omegaverse. This one isn’t the first book in the series, but the first one came out when I was taking a break, so I missed it. I need to go dig it up, because I want to get more of this world. I will say that I didn’t get totally lost by not reading the first book, but there are things that I had to work out as I went along, so I would definitely recommend reading them in order.

So, we start with Maxheim. He’s an Alpha Lord, the second in command in his family, and a member of the outlaw group, the Brotherhood. He and his 2 younger brothers are searching through an omega auction because they are looking for the man who stole their twin brother and sister when they were babies. Maxheim and his family thought that the twins were dead, but recently found out that they were stolen and still alive. So, off the boys go to find the asshole who stole them. As a bonus, they are also looking for the person who is responsible for killing many of the men of the various families of the Brotherhood. All of a sudden, there is a room that attracts Maxheim for some reason. He looks in the room and sees that it is covered in blood and bits of dead people. But there’s also an odd scent that calls to him.

Then we have Tess. She’s an omega and a slave. She has spent many years doing what her owner Aldar has told her to do. She does it because he has 4 young omega girls that he uses to leverage her obedience as long as her long time friend Rav. Tess has a power. She causes men to rage and kill. They touch her once, and then after that she lets loose her gift and causes all the alphas to rage, lust, and kill. They hurt themselves, they hurt others, and they don’t stop. Her owner uses her as bait. He gets members of the Brotherhood to come to bid on fucking her, lets them think that they have won a chance, and then the guards leave the room. After that happens, Tess lets loose with her power, and runs and hides in her cage while the alphas go crazy. This time, the second time she’s doing this tonight, something goes wrong, and things happen early. A massive riot starts in, and then a huge alpha comes in and rescues her. And Maxheim meets the woman who was seen in a vision about him.

I like how omegaverse books all play by the same basic rules, but how each of the authors who write them give their stories their own spin. In this world, Alison’s fated mates have bands that appear on their wrists and neck after their mating has been fulfilled.

I really like Tess. I feel really sorry for her too. She has been handed a really shitty hand. I mean, she has spent the last many years of her life a slave, and her life wasn’t all that great before tht either. She’s been abused, tortured, used, and had her mind fucked over for years. She doesn’t think that she deserves anything, and she’s pretty sure that all the nice things that Maxheim wants to do for her are just lies to trick her. And I’m not surprised about that because no one has ever tried to give it to her straight. It’s always been a trick or a lie.

Maxheim took a minute for me to warm up to. He’s very controlled at the beginning. it’s like he’s in a block of ice, and I think that he likes it that way. That control and that numbness lets him stay focused on his family and finding his twin siblings. I think that all the control and discipline that he has is not a bad thing. I mean, no one wants an out of control alpha flying around, but that control also causes problems. He likes to micromanage, and that causes problems.

I loved this book, and I’m looking forward to seeing what haoppens next, because I think it’s going to be quite interesting.

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