~Synopsis~

Two lovers from rival packs. Have they come together only to be forced apart? 

Alec Knight, a beta in the Regent’s Park pack, guards his heart carefully. Ghosts from his past keep him alone and angry, any hope of a relationship impossible while guilt from the pack wars still haunts him. With the anniversary drawing near, Alec needs a distraction. 
As a lowly member of the Primrose Hill pack, Mark Appleton isn’t used to having his alpha’s attention. Lately he’s had more than his fair share, and not for the right reasons. Despite growing suspicions that all is not well, Mark tries hard to do better, but constant criticism leaves him desperate for a stress outlet.
Sex is a good way for shifters to let off steam, and while their packs attack each other with accusations and lies, Alec and Mark work out their frustrations in bed. Pillow talk and shared secrets lead to a closeness neither was expecting, but when pack relations reach an all-time low, any future for them seems out of the question.
If they want to be together, they’ll have to go against their alphas’ wishes—except Alec won’t and Mark can’t.

I am a big fan of the “Regent’s Pack” series, but this one so far is my favorite!

All books center around a different couple, but I would advice to start with book 1, “Bitten by Mistake”, since most of the world-building is explained in that one. It also has a continuing storyline in the background…In the previous books, we’ve had shifters pairing up with a human. This time, we get two shifters getting it on and let me tell you…

I am a fan!!

Andy Tyler has been the class daredevil since middle school. Over the years, he’s convinced his best friend, Jake Masterson, to perform some dangerous-looking stunts with him. But the dare they attempt on the night of their college graduation goes sideways. The firecrackers explode too soon and both of them end up with badly burned palms.
But hey, nothing gets the “terrible two-o” down for long, and they recuperate in style at Andy’s family cottage in Cape Cod . As the weeks go by, both Andy and Jake grow frustrated over the inability to use their hands for all sorts of daily activities—including getting off. So Andy begins a new series of dares that don’t just cross the friendship line, they obliterate it.
But what might be mere sexual relief to Andy is serious business to Jake, who only recently got over years of secret pining for his straight best friend. Inevitably, the burns heal, summer ends, and hearts are broken. To fix things, Andy will have to face the greatest dare of all.

 And that includes all the novellas…Now, this may be another shorty, but just like the others, that doesn’t make it any less awesome. I for one laughed my ass off. 😛

Sloane and Dex are among my top favorite MM couples and think they always will be. 😉 They have come a long way since book 1 and things haven’t always been easy for them. They did it though and now that they are about to tie the knot…

It’s bachelor party time!!! 😀

The universe is trying to tell Sacha Bolic something. A fire escape collapses under him, he lands in crap, and a killer barely misses his target… all in the same few seconds. That’s on top of a long list of mishaps and job dissatisfaction. Not one to ignore signals when they’re shoved in his face, Sacha retires and uses his savings to buy an old building in Skagit, Washington. With a little help from DIY videos, he’s going to bring it back to its former glory.  And, yeah, it’s a metaphor. If he makes one change, others will follow… 
Seth Culver avoids entanglements, romantic or otherwise. Who needs them? He’s learned the hard way that people betray you or leave. Still, Seth finds people compelling. He kind of collects them, learning their secrets before letting them go their own way. His commitment to no commitments may have met its match in Sacha. Handsome and hot, Sacha seems to offer a permanence that scares Seth more than anything ever has. Seth will have to decide if he’s going to grab life by the balls or keep watching from the sidelines. 
A box of inconsequential belongings hidden for decades in the old building hints at lives imagined but not lived, reminding them both there are no guarantees in love, or this thing called life. 
A standalone in the Accidental Roots series, HEA, and hot m/m. 18+ .

Sasha Bolic is 39 years old and feels every single year in his bones. After the umpteenth close call on his life while on duty as a US Marshall and a premature midlife crisis of some sorts, he contemplates his life choices and decides that something’s got to give. Big time. And fast.

Sick of being uncomfortable with his sexuality and of living in the closet his whole life, he is tired of hiding his true self any longer and grabs the bull by the horns and retires, in order to find a new home somewhere where he just can be. The one place that immediately comes to his mind is Skagit, WA, the dump where he spent several years on an undercover mission and where he made some sorts of friends during that time. Buying an old building and bringing it back to its former beauty is his new purpose in life, which is easier said than done.

~Synopsis~

Just because Kate ‘Middleton’ McGrath, wants a man to call ‘daddy’ in bed doesn’t mean— 
Oh, you stopped reading. Cool. 
Kate gets it. Kinks aren’t for everyone. Hell, they’re probably not for Mr. Henderson, her grumpaholic boss. She really shouldn’t have crush on him, but the man is just so goddamn stern. Sure, a lot of that comes down to ‘being her boss,’ but still, it feels like there might be something there. 
Tyler Henderson is a golden boy who’s lost his shine. He’s old, his dream career is over, his fiancée’s left him. Now all the former firefighter is to try and bury his troubles in paperwork and hard liquor. He says ‘try’ because he can’t get Middleton out of his head long enough to wallow properly. He’s not going anywhere near the girl. HR issues aside, he’s done with sweetness and things don’t come sweeter than a cupcake-baking engineer who knits her own hats. 
A case of mistaken identity causes Kate and Ty’s attraction to give way to blistering sex. They have more in common—and more to lose—than either of them realized. When it comes to unreasonable attraction you can rarely change your mind but can you act your age?

Eve did it again. She’s an exceptional author. She has a unique style and an even unique and awesome imagination.

I’ve read all her books, and all of them are unique, funny, hot, very well written and with an amazing story and subjects. She does a wonderful job. Her characters are the best.

Imagine similară

She became one of my favorite authors. And every time I get a message from her I am so excited. I don’t need to read the blurb, or for her to ask…I just say yes. I know what she is capable of. I don’t have enough words of praise for her and I am very honored that she gives me this chance every time, to read her new book.

~Synopsis~

An Enemies to Lovers Shifter, Vampire True Mates story. 
Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control. 
“His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him. All the while… his mate kept calling.” 
Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full. 
Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over two-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved. 
“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled. 
This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG. 
No multiple pairings. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has an HEA. 
Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like hot, alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their mates, this may not be your read.

I love A.E. Via’s books.

Especially her “Nothing Special” series. The reason I love this author so much is because when I open one of her books, I know I am guaranteed a hot Alpha and some very nice steam. 😛 When I found out she was gonna publish a new PNR book… I squealed a bit !! This book has not one, but two of my weaknesses…

A shifter and a vampire!!! I feel so blessed!!!

Try – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.

Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed—after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto—if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?
And he wants to try Tate Morrison.
Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate’s mind. He’s starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.
The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell – a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.
Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.
As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.
Logan doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?

~Synopsis~

Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency.
Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.
Finn Mayer dreamed of joining the FBI from the time he was fourteen and made every possible sacrifice to make it happen, including living with his selfish mother and bullying, homophobic brother and never having a boyfriend. But his undiagnosed dyslexia stopped his aspirations dead in their tracks. His last chance is to partner with Talon, an enhanced with deadly abilities who doesn’t trust regular humans with their secrets and wants Finn to fail.
Four weeks to prove himself to the team. Four weeks for the team to prove itself to the public. And when another group threatens their success—and their lives are at stake—four weeks for them to survive.

This book really took me by surprise. I absolutely loved it!!!

788216.gif (500×279)

Guess I am a huge sucker for badass men with superpowers!!This book kind of reminded me of the “Thirds” series, though it was completely different. For one…it’s not about shifters…It’s about “Enhanced Humans”.

What are “Enhanced Humans”, you say??

Wait-say-what-GIF.gif (500×358)

Well, they are boys, who have yet to hit puberty, who wake up one day,  with a special ability (think X-men) and a mark on their face. There aren’t very many enhanced around, and the reason why and how this genetic condition manifests in some children is still unknown. What isn’t unknown, is that the enhanced are treated very poorly by the rest of the human population. As is often the case…people fear and hate what they don’t know…

Parents literally kick their kids out when they suddenly bare a mark. These kids are sent to “homes” and some with very special/dangerous powers are even send to “kiddie prison”.

The thought alone made me sick!!!

Reviewer: ~Simone~
Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

When Ward Johannsen’s little girl Ava shifted into a werewolf, she was taken into custody by the feds and shipped off to the nearest pack, all ties between father and daughter severed. Ward burned every bridge he had discovering her location, and then almost froze to death in the Colorado mountains tracking her new pack down. And that’s just the beginning of his struggle.
Henry Dormer is an alpha werewolf and an elite black ops soldier who failed his last mission. He returns home, hoping for some time to recuperate and help settle the pack’s newest member, a little pup named Ava who can’t shift back to her human form. Instead he meets Ward, who refuses to leave his daughter without a fight. The two men are as different as night and day, but their respect for each other strikes a spark of mutual interest that quickly grows into a flame. They might find something special together—love, passion, and even a family—if they can survive trigger-happy pack guardians, violent werewolf politics, and meddling government agencies that are just as likely to get their alpha soldiers killed as bring them home safely.

“It’s not your place to take care of me.”
“It is now, though,” I said earnestly. “You’re my pack.”
“You feel like pack. You might feel like more.”

The Eye of the Werewolf

Granted, the circumstances under which Ward Johannsen and Henry Dormer met are not the best, to put it mildly.

Ward lands on Henry’s doorstep -literally-, on the brink of drawing his last breath -also quite literally- in search of his little daughter, Ava, who got snatched from under his nose by the government and sent to Henry’s pack after turning into a werewolf. Ava is all the world to Henry and with nothing else to lose, he moves heaven and hell to find her, his own delicate state of health notwithstanding and fully intent on not letting himself be put off by an intimidating alpha werewolf.

Taegan gave up his dreams of a life-mate and a family after seeing too many humans butchered at the hands of the wolves—even if Caleb doesn’t seem to be the bloodthirsty savage he expects, and even if he starts to long for a different kind of future with the wolf.
Can Caleb become the Alpha he was always meant to be and lead his pack, or will he finally realize that winning his freedom means nothing when he has already lost his heart?

I absolutely loved book 1, The Alpha King in this series. I am normally not a big fan of mpreg, but I made an exception for that one since it was so nicely done. 😉

Of course, when I found out that there was gonna be the second book in this series, I jumped on it.

tenor.gif (244×152)

Even though this book is about a different couple than book 1, I would still advise reading the first book before starting this one. This mostly because of the world building that takes place in that one, but also because it’s an awesome book!!
