As she explores desires she never knew she had and succumbs to carnal pleasures courtesy of both men, Ivy doesn’t know that falling for either man could mean her death. For both men are harboring a secret, a secret that if Ivy knew she would not only question her heart but her sanity as well.
I give this book 4 hearts
Nissa Alexander returns to Bear Paw River ten pounds and one boyfriend lighter with an attitude screaming ‘Leave me the hell alone’. The last thing she needs is her older brother, the Alpha, lecturing her about settling down and true mates. Hell, he doesn’t even have his own mate, so he has no right to talk.
And then, there’s the hunky bad boy, who’s working a missing person’s case in her neck of the woods. He needs to stop sniffing around before someone gets hurt. Nissa’s heart has been trampled on enough these past few years. She is absolutely not going to fall for this lone wolf. Not gonna happen. But her bear isn’t taking no for an answer.
Zach Werner is on the hunt. But this time, it’s not for a predator or a bad guy to bring to justice. His job is to find a missing woman. Why the Florida wolf pack is paying so much money to find this female, Zach doesn’t know. And he doesn’t care. His job is his life. At least, until he meets Nissa. After a brief tangle in the woods, Zach knows this curvy beauty is his mate.
Can he convince her he’s the wolf for her and stay alive long enough to finish the job?
Zach is following any clue he can to learn who abducted his sister. Taking missing persons jobs that may lead him just little closer to finding her. While on this job, he never expected to run into Nissa, his mate. As difficult as it may seem, he can’t focus on her, doesn’t have time for mate. His sister is number one. Not surprisingly, Nissa feels the same. They are both fighting a pull that’s nearly impossible to ignore.
I really liked this read. Such a quick one too, is you’ve got about two hours and you’re jones’ing for good book, I would definitely recommend this one. Loved the basis of the story. Boy meets girl, finds out they’re mates, they fight the pull, etc. Besides that, his sister has been kidnapped and no word as where she’s gone? Big bro to save the day…..hopefully! The author didn’t get into that is much nor about wither family. Not a big fan of cliffhangers, but eager to read the next. I gave this a fast five star read!

Magic has destroyed Daniel Cross’s family and now his only chance at happiness when he discovers the boy he’s in love with has a conduit dragon inside him. Already keeping his distance because of the young man’s murderous father, Daniel’s beast has started to roar, demanding that Mason be claimed before competition arrives. Daniel is so determined to keep from being a beast, he chooses to exile from the magical world completely. Mason Blackthorne will not be ignored. Unless he can find someone powerful enough to protect him, he will be enslaved, tortured and used by terrible warlocks to possess his power. He’s chosen Daniel, and if he can get the boy close enough, he knows he can convince him to be his bondmate. A powerful suitor has come to court Mason, but the mysterious man holds evil, blood soaked intentions. Can Daniel find a way to put the obligations of the dead behind him long enough to save Mason, or will his quest for revenge lose the only boy he’s ever loved to the same monster that killed his family? Disclaimer: 18+ This novel contains explicit m/m sexual content, graphic language and violence. The shifters transform from human to humanoid with respective dragon and lion characteristics and behaviors, including mating and breeding (but not impregnation), bonding, and some minor blood play. Any violence inflicted on the main characters is not sexual. http://www.sadiesinsbooks.com
Daniel just has to finish out the last day of his Senior year classes at the magic academy and then he can get away from his secret crush and all the attention that he gets from recently being identified as an Elite. Mason is also ready to be away from the Academy and most of all away from Daniel who has only chased away every other guy paying attention to Mason. But Mason has just found out that he’s a conduit and needs only the strongest to protect him. These two prove that not only do opposites attract but that there’s a thin line between love and hate. While both have only tried to push each other away, what they’re really trying to do is cover their massive attraction for one another. Honestly, in the early chapters, I didn’t know if I’d end up liking this book. It was hard to get in to at first because there seems to be a huge backstory that is difficult to understand for a book 1 in a new series. But after a couple chapters and a better grasp of what was going on, I was hooked. The scenes are very descriptive, the storyline is interesting and the sex was HOT. This book reminded me very much of an X-rated, adult version of Harry Potter.I rate this book 5 Hearts.

Caleb, a 17-year-old boy, survived the zombie uprising, but he didn’t come out of the ordeal unscathed. He’s been scarred—both mentally and physically. The rest of humanity is trying to rebuild, to make the world normal again. Caleb is trying to return to a normal life also, but after all he’s seen, after the loss of his family and friends, the transition is difficult. The darkness that led him down a path of self-doubt and self-harm keeps trying to creep back into his mind.
Things only become worse when he discovers he’s immune to whatever makes a zombie a zombie. Fighting zombies was predictable. He knew what to expect. Fighting humans is volatile. They are malicious and treacherous. They won’t stop to get what they want, and Caleb has to figure out exactly what that is.
*Trigger warning: attempted suicide
One Nation Under Zombies
Caleb sprinted across the dirt road. His leg muscles burned. He was barely able to get his feet off the ground. The backpack slammed into his lower back with every step—the straps dug into his shoulders. As he approached the low wall, he slid into a crouch, turning so his back would contact the stones first. The pressure of the backpack pressed into his ribcage—squeezing the air out of his lungs. He pressed his lips together and let the stream flow out of his nose. He tried his best to keep it silent—a task that proved difficult with every pant. His lungs screamed for air. He wanted to draw in large, gasping breaths, but they would be too loud and attract unwanted attention. The undead were just on the other side of the wall, unaware of his presence, and he intended to keep it that way.
Caleb’s gaze drifted back to the road and fell on his sister, Nina, and Len, his chemistry partner from school. They ran toward him as fast as they could with their heavy backpacks that hunched them over. Or perhaps it was an attempt to make themselves smaller so they were less noticeable—Caleb couldn’t tell. They slid up to the wall on either side of Caleb and attempted to control their breathing.
This was a terrible place to hide—they all knew it. It was too open, too exposed, but there weren’t any other choices. The squat wall was right at the edge of a fallow field, across the dirt road they had been traversing in the hopes of finding civilization. They found the wall in a vast, rural landscape. The three of them were lucky there was something. They had come around a bend in the road and up a small hill, and there they were—zombies—shuffling aimlessly through the countryside. Caleb had to suppress his shocked gasp. They came out here because the urban areas had become too dangerous. There were too many zombies. The supplies had either been pillaged or were too difficult to get to. The country was supposed to be their hope, their salvation. So far, it wasn’t. The farmhouse was still ways away, about 50 yards. At least that was what Caleb assumed. He was horrible at judging distances. It didn’t matter anyway. With the zombies in front of them, the house was as accessible as another planet. But they couldn’t stay out in the open, either.
The look on Len’s face reflected the turmoil Caleb felt inside. His eyes were wide, his face red from exertion. His head was cocked to the side, his jaw muscles tight. The look asked: “What do we do now?” Caleb had no answer.
When they set out that morning to look for food, they had told themselves the zombies had been confined to the cities. Why? Because they had to believe something. They had to think there was still a chance.
Caleb lowered his gaze to the ground. There was no way to respond to Len’s silent question. They just had to wait it out—make their move when they got the opportunity. Caleb glanced over his shoulder at his sister. She slumped against the wall, her legs sprawled out in front of her, her chin resting on her chest. His stomach tightened as he took in her pose. She wasn’t going to be able to move quickly from that position. She needed to be ready. Yet, he felt for her. What was the point of being ready if it meant they had to keep running? His legs shook underneath him as he held his crouch. It would have been such a relief to plop onto his butt and take the weight off his legs. He could’ve placed his arms around Nina’s shoulders and pulled her close. They could have relaxed in their misery. Instead, he gently backhanded her arm. When she looked at him, he thrust his thumb into the air. With an eye roll and deliberate movements, Nina moved into a crouch, removing the gun from the back of her waistband.
Caleb focused on the weapon in his hands. It was there so often, it was like an appendage. He rarely noticed it anymore. But neither of the guns would do them much good; there weren’t enough bullets to take out the threat. Even if they fired their remaining rounds, all it would do was draw more zombies to their location.
Caleb turned his attention away from his gun and stretched up to look over the wall. As soon as his eyes broke the surface, he scanned the area before sinking back down. His heart pounded against his ribs, his throat tightened. An undead lumbered close to the wall—too close. One wrong move or sound and they were spotted. He licked his lips and felt the sweat slide down his spine. If they stayed quiet, the zombies would keep moving. They just had to wait it out.
A low, soft grumbling filled the air. At first, Caleb wasn’t convinced he’d heard it. It was so low, he could have imagined it. He had hoped he’d imagined it. But then Len wrapped his arms around his midsection and squeezed. The rumbling grew louder. It was hard to hide the sounds of hunger. Caleb’s eyes grew wide. He shifted his stance so he could explode onto his feet.
The rotted hand reached over the wall and swiped the air between Caleb and Len. There were no other options. All of them sprang to their feet. The crowd of rotting flesh was converging on their position. Caleb extended his arms and lined up his sights. The crack of the gun echoed loudly in the country air; the corpse slumped onto the wall. All three of them jumped over the wall and ran toward the house. The path took them directly toward the zombies; they had to be fast enough to get by them.
Caleb’s extremities tingled with adrenaline, his footsteps thumped rhythmically on the hard, dry ground. He sucked in long gasps of air, but his lungs still burned for oxygen. He caught glimpses of the other two out of the corner of his eyes. The undead drew nearer. Their arms outstretched, waiting to snag their prey. Caleb zig-zagged across the field. He ducked under a pair of arms, then shouldered a zombie out of the way. Its bones crunched against his shoulder, teeth gnashed close to his ear, driving him forward with more urgency. The house grew larger with every step he took. Almost there.
A short yip followed by a grunt sounded behind him. He risked a glance over his shoulder. Len stumbled then fell. Caleb’s heart leapt into his throat. He skidded to a stop, turning to help his friend. Caleb was about to step toward Len, but he was stopped in his tracks. The action caused him to lose his balance. His arms flailed through the air to keep Caleb from falling over. An incessant, strong tugging kept him from moving forward. He turned to see Nina jerking on his backpack. Her eyes were wide and glistening with tears. She bit her bottom lip and shook her head violently. Caleb glanced again at Len, who reached for Caleb, his mouth open in a silent plea, tears running down his cheeks. Caleb reached toward him. Len’s plea turned into a scream as a zombie bit into his calf. A dark ring of blood stained his jeans and grew larger. Another zombie latched onto the fingers of his extended hand. The crunch as it bit through his bones rattled in Caleb’s skull. He pulled his hand into his chest.
Caleb turned at that point. There was nothing more he could do. His sister grabbed his wrist, and they ran into the house. They took the stairs two at a time and headed into a bedroom on the right. After closing the door, they scanned the area, checking under the bed and in the closet. Clear. His sister collapsed face first onto the bed. From the way her body shook, Caleb could tell she was crying. He leaned back until his pack connected with the door. His legs gave out, and he slid to the floor. Pulling his knees to his chest, he wrapped his arms around his head and tried to disappear into himself.
And then there were two.

What’s the only thing that sucks harder than being attacked by a hairy, naked, bloodsucking vampire?
Turning into one.
Months ago, I took the wrong path. Literally.
I made a mistake and now I’m paying for it. Oh boy, am I paying for it. Because becoming a vampire isn’t an overnight thing.
It’s one full year of insomnia, stomach pains, weird urges, and teething. Yes, teething.
One year to think about your new nature and what it means for your future. Like how everyone you know and love will gradually start smelling like steak.
A whole year of trying—and failing—to resist the temptation of the vampire who made you, the ancient immortal whose touch makes your body sing and whose pale blue eyes burn with your darkest secret, promising to cherish you for centuries.
Before he caught me, he was more animal than man—savage, weary, and ready to end it all. That changed the moment our lives collided. He made me his, and I made plans.
One year of life left. Twelve months of mortality. What would you do with them?
Would you go out with a whimper? Or a bang?
The Diary of an Alligator Queen is a full-length, standalone paranormal vampire romance. It contains extremely mature themes and is intended for a mature, 18+ audience. It’s not sweet, though it has its moments. And it’s not gentle, though the characters can be. It is violent and dark at times, but there’s a guaranteed HEA for those who want it.
A girl is attacked and everyone tells her it must have been a dog. Was it? She remembers in her nightmares that it was a man – yet not a man. As she searches for answers she is attacked again. This time by an alligator. But something saves her. What or who?
I was very confused by the name at first, but it is explained finally late in the storyline. It’s a bit slow as far as action goes, but still keeps you curious enough to stick with it to see what’s going to happen next. The heroine was someone I liked one moment and didn’t the next, however. Just an odd feeling sometimes that she was vacillating a bit too much. The sex scenes are explicit and steamy, the other characters were endearing. You even feel sorry for her doctor boyfriend even though he was technically an asshole.
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock I gave it four hearts. It was interesting enough, but I don’t envision myself rereading it.

The first installment in Austin Kalin’s sensational Sexy Greek God Kidnappers series!
It’s the first day of summer break and I’m officially done with high school! My softball team just won the championship and it’s my two year anniversary with Brett. Everything’s coming up Sam right? WRONG. When I found Brett cheating on me, things went from great, to bad, to horrible. Of course my bestie Kyrn ran over for a night of binging on ice cream and chick flicks. That was the plan at least…know what wasn’t in the plan? Being kidnapped by a group of guys that look like they were sculpted by the hands of God. Even less expected was when one of my captor’s growled “Mine” at me…and yes, I did say growl.
The moment I laid eyes on Sam I knew she was my mate and I would do whatever it took to have her. When your soul is linked to another, rules go out the window, and nothing or no one can keep you apart. I’ve followed her scent to her front door and there’s no turning back now – she will be mine. When Sam approaches me from the darkness I hear my pack gasp as they say in unison “She’s human.” But guess what? I don’t care.
This book is so amazing. I absolutely loved it. It was easy to understand and read. I love the author’s theme throughout the book about girl power. The characters are refreshing and relatable. It’s a very captivating and fun book, and I cannot wait for more! – Elly
This story will have you glued to the pages right from the beginning! You have two spunky young women and a group of sexy as sin young wolf shifters! With an exciting storyline how can you not love it! – Roxie
Xavier would never have imagined he would find her at a stop light, crying no less. He knows he has to go get her, but she takes off before he can talk to her. Hunting her down was easy but trying to get her to come with him was impossible. Thank goodness for good old chloroform.
When both Sam and Kyrn wake up handcuffs to a bed and realize they are in an unknown house and the memories state to come back, they realize they are in big trouble!
Totally loves this book! To know its your typical werewolf finds mate story, but man, Sam is just too funny! Love her sarcasm and wit along with her strong personality, she ain’t taking nothing from no one! I read the three book aeries in a day, so its rather quicksand quick reads. Love how light this was, definitely a young adult fiction read which seems to be a great change. I would recommend not only for young adults but adult as well. This was a five star read for me!
