Taken by the Alien Prince by Ruth Anne Scott #Review

When Layla awakens tied down to a slab of stone and watching a sunset that should not exist, all she remembers is running. She can recall nothing beyond the cold ground at her feet and the sheer terror of being captured and brought wherever she was. Only the brief appearance of a beautiful man by her side comforts her, but he soon disappears and she finds herself handed over to a group of strange women who tell her that she has been chosen by the youngest prince of a planet she never even knew existed. She is to become his nurturer, a woman enslaved and expected to attend to his every whim.

Will whatever waits for her in her role as a nurturer be worth all of the memories that have disappeared from her mind? Or will she have a chance to escape and return to the world she doesn’t remember?

I really enjoyed this one.  Not only does it have some truly interesting characters that are well written and fleshed out, but the author has created a fantastic universe to play in, surrounding our own planet.

I was almost more interested in the second couple than in the first, but they were both fascinating.  The premises the author has come up with have me adding these books to the top of my TBR list!  The sensual scenes between couples are written in a classic style that lends a great touch to the story.  As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I give it four and a half hearts.  I really, really liked it but just didn’t quite love it. 

The Amazon and The Beast by Hati Bell #review

THE AMAZON
Kellsey Callahan has everything an amazon could wish for – kick-ass brothers, a rock chicks crew, and a pet Kraken. Everything except her childhood crush Leroy Leandros. He wouldn’t even touch her when she jumped into his bed, naked, as a surprise, eight years ago.

THE BEAST
Cursed by a goddess, Leroy turns into a savage beast three days a year. Having murdered countless people, he ended his rampage only when he locked himself in a cage. His raging beast was prepared for anything: except for a captivating amazon.

When during a game of Truth or Dare Kellsey’s challenged to steal a kiss from Leroy, she decides to shoot him with Cupid’s arrow. It’s just a cute little arrow. What could possibly go wrong?

will start by saying – I had a hard time getting into this one.  It showed so much promise so I kept at it 1 more chapter, than BOOM!  It is a bit of spin on Beauty and the Beast – but well so so much more.

Kellsey is an Amazon – she was raised by brothers, she somehow appears with this eclectic group of paranormals.  (that is for you to find out).  Leonidas, is the beast – he is a lion shifter – but what a lion shifter he truly is.  Together, Kells and Leo, kick butt and take names.  Can they find a happily ever after – hell can they find a happy here and now.
Ms. Bell spins a really well thought out take on PNR – yes we have shifters and vamps, but also Amazon’s, Kraken, Harpies, and Centaurs, as well as a few more mixed into this lovely urban, pnr, fantasy.  It was great to see how the characters develop and grow and overcome what life and the Gods are throwing at them.   This isn’t really a cliffhanger but their are still things that need to be answered and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Professor Next Door by Summer Cooper

Professor Next Door is about Tara and Galen. Tara is a new college student, a late starter who is using her inheritance from her grandmother, who raised her, to go to college. Tara is very studious and wants to be a doctor. Galen is a college professor who is used to the young women at the college throwing themselves at him, and while he enjoys encounters with women that he feels are not looking for anything permanent, he is not looking for long term relationship, let alone a wife. Since Galen’s wife died when their daughter was only a few weeks old, he has been afraid to risk his heart again. But now his former in-laws who have not helped him or had anything to do with his daughter want to take them away from him. Tara has been babysitting when Galen needed help, but can she agree to marry him to help him keep his daughter? 

This book is awesome. The character development is excellent and the story flows along at a great pace. There are steamy sexual situations and adult language but the story pulls the reader and you won’t want to put it down till you are done. I look forward to seeing what else this author has written. 

I’m giving this book 5 hearts

I f@ck my students… I just can’t seem to keep it in my pants when these young sexy women throw themselves at me!

But now, I must stop behaving like such a d**k, not that my dead wife would care…

If I get caught sleeping with my students, I’ll lose my job.

And if I don’t get my s**t together, they’ll come for the only good thing in my life… my daughter.

But I have a plan to fix all that. I have a plan for the girl next door…

Author’s Note: This is a 50,000 words romance with a HEA. Story contains mature language and scenes, intended for adults only. Bonus books included for a limited time for your reading pleasure. A never before published bonus book Brit Next Door is included in this edition.

 

Loved by the Alpha Bear by Emilia Hartley #shifter #Review

Dan can’t put up with this any more. Being the only single person in his pack was starting to take a toll on him. To make matters worse, the Northern Wind Pack has been hiding since they last fought. He knew what that meant; they were due to attack very soon. With his mind confused he knew he needed to find a mate, and quick.

After travelling for most of her life, Lucy has had it with her brother Dom’s antics. He’d already crossed the line long ago, and his demands were getting even worse. She wanted nothing to do with him. Luckily for her, seemingly at the perfect time, an attractive shifter stumbled upon her – literally. Maybe she could get used to this town…

*Now with 4 free bonus books*
Content Warning: This book contains lots of sexy shifter action. Intended for mature audiences.

Dan’s feeling just a little lonely. He’s surrounded by madly in love new couples. He knows his bear wants a mate, but the only females that remotely near are in a pack that has a grudge against his.
Lucy has always been around domineering alpha bears. After what’s happened in the past she wants to stay as far away as she can from any kind of conflict. Which is a little ironic since that’s how she meets Dan. They both have an issue that they are working through and eventually use one another to help over some them.
Totally dug this story! The only downside is that this was the first book I read. So far it doesn’t seem necessary to read from book 1, but I think I would have enjoyed it even more and had more of a connection with the characters. Loved Lucy’s timid yet totally sassy-ness and Dan, well he’s a definite gentleman. Liming forward to reading what’s to come with the Northern Wind pack. I’m giving the read four hearts.

Sugar by Misti Murphy #Review

I’m just a girl, standing in front of a display case, trying to decide between chocolate and cupcakes.

Seriously decadent, panty soaking, melt in your mouth chocolate. The ultimate love drug.

Or…

The cupcake with its smooth, sweet icing, its gooey center, and cream that spurts out when you…

Wait! You thought this was actually about sweets?

Well kinda, but it’s also about men.
Two of them. Gabe and Dylan. Friends. Business partners. One charming chocolatier, one brash baker.
I’m pretty sure I’m not supposed to want either of them. After all, I moved to Reverence to escape gossip and mend my broken heart.

But I do want them. Both of them. How am I supposed to choose between two hot guys who are determined to win over this quiet kindergarten teacher? Indulging my sweet tooth is out of the question. Falling off the wagon can only end in pain.

But like any addict, one taste isn’t nearly enough. Can a girl really have her cake, and fall in love with two?

As you can see by the beautiful cover this is a mfm book… I have read lots of books like this and they are one sided.. with no plot… Just sex and sex.. this book is NOT one of them… It had romance, love, and drama… Some will look at people that live like this, even in this day and age… As being wrong… taboo… and sinful.. but who is to say how another person can love someone?.. No one that is who… If you don’t understand how a situation like mfm can work… Read this book and feel the love that Dylan and Gabe feel for Summer and her for her boys… Yes it’s hard to imagine a love like that working… But love is more than what we can label, or put that sticker on… So let’s color outside the box.. I would recommend this book to 18 and anyone that likes mfm plots…

Beauty needs a Hunter by Gabriel Beyers #short #review

Review:

This is my first Gabriel Beyers read. He has an interesting twist on the paranormal read. Please remember this is a short story – it is quick, vivid and the end will leave you saying What the…..!

Gabriel’s writing is fluid and forward moving, his descriptive writing draws you in. Alan Tate is a detective called in on a mysterious killing everyone thinks the witness are out of their heads. An unexpected phone call warning him a deaths from a girlfriend he thought was dead. And it takes off from there.

My only problem with the book is it wasn’t enough – I would have loved to see this a full length novel – so we knew more about Alan and Evelyn’s backstory. The ending completely left me screaming for more. That being said if you are in the market for a quick paranormal read – this one is definitely worth the time.

Mine by A.N. Senerella #review

Anika Mason—simple name. Brown hair—average color. Blue eyes—she wished they were brown. But somehow she’s attracted the attention of the new boy at highschool, and he is becoming quite obsessive and possessive over her. She needs to figure out how to get rid of him, fast. But when she’s forced to lie about having a boyfriend to get him to leave her alone, she gives the name of the biggest player in the school; Brady Morrison. Not only did she not like him, but he barely knew she existed. And now she had to pretend she was dating him. Wonderful.  

Mine is about Anika Mason. Anika is a teenage girl going to high school. The book starts out with Anika having a very bad day. Everything that can go wrong so far has. Brady grabs Anika’s backpack to get her to talk to him and she leaves the backpack with him rather than deal with him. Then in her next class is the new boy, Foster, who creeps her out by staring so much at her during a test. Then when she goes into the hall after that class, she is play fighting for Mitchell, one of her best friends when Foster throws him up against a locker because he thinks Mitchell is really going to hit Anika. When Anika realizes how much it seems like Foster is stalking her, she winds up getting Brady to help her try to get rid of him by pretending to be her boyfriend. This all happens by lunch time.

This book is good. The story just really starts out fast, and it makes it a little hard to understand the motivation and background of the characters. Anika acts like she is plain, but Brady is surprised she has never really kissed a boy yet, so that makes it confusing in understanding the characters. This is a good coming of age book for people who like to read those kinds of stories.

I give this book 3.5 hearts. (But that is not possible on Amazon so I will be giving it a three star rating)

I Will Make You Mine by Nicholas Bella #Review #pnr #nicholasbella

Dante: No one could have prepared me for who I saw captured in the arms of that hulking werewolf. It took everything I had not to go over there and rip that wolf’s throat out for manhandling my best friend, Dominic. If I know my Father, Theoden, he’ll want to make an example out of Dom. I’m going to try my best to make sure that doesn’t happen.

Theoden: My son has plans for his friend Dominic, I see. Whether I let him have his way or not is entirely up to my mood, and I’m not in a good one. What started out of a promising afternoon has quickly escalated into some drama I will be dealing with personally and with lots of blood.

Vex: Now that my King has granted me the human I’ve desired, I have to wait until the wolves have completed their mating ceremony in order for me to have Isiah turned. I’m so excited, I don’t know if I can wait any longer to have me pet just the way I want him.

Elliot: Chandler was actually able to pull off our ploy to perfection. I guess I have to give the human credit. Meanwhile, this thing with Josef , Dante and Theoden is stirring up something ugly in the wolf territories. Come the full moon, there’ s no telling what’s going to happen. I know one thing, Deacon is going to make sure we come out on top, because that’s the kind of Alpha he is.

Romeo: Tonight is my second night on the town, but the first time I’ll be patrolling the city with my Sire, Noel. He’s been looking forward to flexing his supernatural muscles for weeks now, so I’m sure this will not be a boring experience.

Warning: This series is highly addictive, and fans have complained that it’s all they can think about, oftentimes re-reading each book until their next fix. Be further warned: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes as each episode will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance.

Welcome back into Nicholas Bella’s amazing world of vampires, werewolves and dragons. Reading episode two is like catching up with old friends if you’re friends are sex starved, blood lusting, devious and dangerous supes.
Nothing has changed with Prince Theoden and his sons, they’re still running New Haven with an iron fist.
Josef and his pack are now Theodens’s to rule and Josef and Dante are ready to mate. What will be the result of this unusual mating? No one knows but we’ll find out. Deacon as we all know can’t be trusted, is still playing both sides. He’s always double dealing and with him you never know who he plans on stabbing in the back next.
There are always power plays going on but they’re finally coming to a head and it’s going to get bloody. There’s sex, deception, excitement and danger in equal measure in this episode, so if you don’t enjoy panty melting M/M sex with a hell of a plot then this isn’t the series for you. For me it’s a great series with the perfect mix of sex, deception, danger and action. Yes the characters are blood thirsty and deadly but damn they’re hot as hell and I’ve fallen in love with them and this series. Let me warn you though, Nicholas has a devilish sense of humor and there’s one hell of a cliff hanger that if you’re as invested as I am , it will make you say WTF Nicholas. As always a perfect 5 stars and it deserves way way more.

Kings of Mystic by S.C. York #Review

Two minutes.
It’s only taken this girl two minutes to bring me to my knees. A feat that a thousand girls have tried to do but failed and I don’t even know her name. Yet.
I shake my head in amazement and run a hand through my hair that drips with salt water. She flinches when a few drops land on her bare shoulders. My eyes lower and follow the white lines where the straps of her bikini hid her soft skin from the sun. I wonder how far down they go–I can’t wait to find out.

Sweetheart, I am about to turn your world upside down and take you on the ride of your life.
I take hearts.
I crush them.
I make them bleed.
I know that it’s fucked up, but it’s the only way that I know how to survive now.

Authors Note: This is a prequel novella to the Last Summer Girl, but can be read as a standalone.
MATURE SITUATIONS AND LANGUAGE 18++++!!!!

(3.5 Stars) While the blurb for this prequel novella says that it can be read as a standalone, I am not sure that is correct. I am not sure if my enjoyment of the story would have been fuller if I’d read the novel to which this is a sequel or not, but I really did not like the character of Ryan. There is a lot lost in the novella length especially with regards to fully fleshing out characters, and I think that is what happened in this case. Despite beginning the story feeling terrible for Ryan over the loss of his sister, Abby, throughout the rest of the story, he was nothing more than a caricature of a playboy and there was no real depth to his character. The storytelling was also a little disjointed and confusing and I think that the story would benefit from some serious editing and fleshing out. I also felt that the story ended on a sort-of cliffhanger which completely refutes the idea that it is a standalone novel. I feel that the story has a lot of potential and that potential might be realized in the novel for which it is a prequel. However, if an author wishes to tell the story before the story, as it were, there needs to be real reason for that prequel and it needs to be as full-fleshed out as the original, or the reader is going to feel cheated.

I think that I would enjoy the story in a more fully realized form, and would love to re-read it and re-review if that ever happens. The novella is intended for mature audiences only.

Savage Planet Cyborg by Cheyenne Hart #review

Simone is a top doctor, but that requires emotional detachment. Having lost the person closest to her, she jumped at the chance to be a crew member on The New Horizon, the first ship to venture into deep space. She never wanted to get attached again. At least, before being rescued by a hot alien cyborg warrior.

Jaxxon has been in deep sleep more times than he can remember. He doesn’t even know who he was in his previous life. They say he’s ancient technology, built before the savage planet of Lustrya fell into a new primitive age. This time, his mission is simple: stop a gang of dangerous criminals. But when he lays eyes on the beautiful female doctor from Earth, he lets the bad guys get the upper hand.

Now they’re trapped underground, prisoners of a deranged trio of aliens and their unstable robot. Being locked up together in a dangerous situation is enough to get anyone’s blood pumping—but could it lead to unplanned intimacy? Possibly even love?

WARNING: This fast-paced book contains steamy love scenes, deadly and exciting alien locations, a hunky alien who’s half machine with privates that’ll remind you of a sex toy, and a story of passion between a strong minded Earth woman and a HOT cyborg who’s out of this world.

This is the third release in a fresh sci-fi romance series. Each new book is a standalone story, featuring characters from The New Horizon space ship who find themselves stuck on a distant world. Is it possible to find love on a savage alien planet? Find out now!

While this novel is part of a series, the author has done a great job in giving a summary of the action leading up to the point of the opening of this story so that readers who have come into the series mid-stride do not feel too left out, but she is also careful to not give too much away regarding the previous novels so readers can go back and read the previous books and still enjoy them, spoiler-free. I really enjoyed the story and the world that the author has created here. I do feel that there were some places where the action was a little rushed and would benefit from expansion. However, the characters are interesting and I am very intrigued regarding where they are going to go from here. The sex scenes, while explicit, were not gratuitous; they fit in with the telling of the story. I hope that future installments of the series give us more insight into the character of Bree who is a secondary character in this novel. The author has definitely hooked me enough that I am interested in going back and catching up with other books in the series. As I have said, the sex scenes are explicit, so I would recommend this novel to readers 18+.
