~Synopsis~

Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes.
As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

My relationship with this author is a simple, yet perfect one. She writes it…and I read it. 😉

I have read every book in the “Deep in your Veins” series, the “Dark In You” series, the  “Phoenix Pack” series and of course the “The Mercury Pack” series. To say that I am a big fan of Suzanne Wright, would be an understatement.

So when I saw this baby on NetGalley, I jumped on it. 😛

Now all these books center around a different couple, so technically they could be read as a stand-alone. I would advise everyone to read this series, and the Phoenix Pack series, in order though…I am so glad I did because I really enjoyed it. Now I have to be honest here and say that I was hoping for Trick or Dominic’s story to be next, but I found out they are next in line. 😉

Doesn’t really matter anyway because all these Alpha boys are fine!!!

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.

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.

Mate, family, pack, home… can Quinn and Kellan have it all?

Quinn grew up feeling out of place in the small town he calls home. Yearning for something he can’t name, he’s always felt different but never known why.
Kellan is part of a nomadic shifter pack. When they set up camp in the woods near Quinn’s town, the humans are unwelcoming and suspicious of the newcomers. The moment Kellan catches sight—and scent—of Quinn, he knows Quinn is special. But for the first time in his life, Kellan can’t trust his instincts. Quinn is human, and Kellan is a wolf shifter, so how can they ever be mates?
Their bond is instant and exhilarating. It breaks Quinn’s heart to know their relationship can only be temporary. Love isn’t enough when pack law forbids shifters to mate with humans. Tension explodes between pack and humans, and when Quinn discovers a shocking truth about himself that changes everything, he fears he’ll have to choose between the only life he’s ever known and the man he loves.

Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

A hot and hilarious standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle… 

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. I wasn’t supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at twenty-eight. And I most definitely wasn’t supposed to hit Hollywood’s resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot. 
Now, my guilt and homelessness have me living in his apartment, taking care of him, while he’s incapacitated. 
Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I’ve had a crush on forever, doesn’t sound like a chore, right? 
Wrong. 
Gabriel Evans is a crude, rude asshole who drinks way too much and smokes like a chimney. 
The sooner I get a new place to live and when Gabriel’s foot is healed, I’m out of here. 
So, why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds? And why do I keep getting flustered when I see him shirtless? 
Breaking Hollywood wasn’t part of the plan. But neither is falling in love with him. 
Loved Breaking Hollywood? Check out Samantha’s sexy, laugh-out-loud romance, Wardrobe Malfunction, out now!

I have read several books by this author and I really enjoyed them, especially the “The Storm” series.  

So when I read the blurb for this new book, I knew I had to read it. I am so glad I did because this story was very entertaining. It was funny, sweet and very sexy. Just what I needed at the moment.

Apparently, there is a book before this one, that I missed “Wardrobe Malfunction”. Both of the MC’s are introduced in that story.  If you haven’t read it, no worries because this book can be read as a standalone. I have no idea how I missed it myself, but I will go back to read it…that’s for sure. 😉

Ava is having a day from hell. Her boyfriend has recently dumped her, she has just lost her job and got an eviction notice from her apartment, because of her pet (an awesome pygmy goat). To top it all off, she runs over the over the foot of Hollywood’s famous bad boy Gabe Evans.

~Synopsis~

He’s a womanizer. He’s cocky. He’s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.
Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.
Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.
But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . .

When the prince crown of Wildemar, Garett despaired tree mounts ago, his twin prince Kian took his place. Garrett was the first born and Kian the second. Since they were born, although they were twins, they were different.Garrett was born to be King, to rule. He was more malleable then Kian. He even wished to be the future king. And so it was very easy for him. He prepared since childhood for this. His country and other needs were first to him than his own. Wildemar comes first.

Kian, on the other hand, was the exact opposite.

I am a big fan of this author. I really loved her “Until” series and the “Underground Kings” !! So, of course, I had to give this new book a go. 😉

Even though I did enjoy reading this one…it wasn’t my favorite of her…I found the opening scene of this book pretty confusing. The heroine was running around with her arms wide and her eyes closed and ran into the hero. When he asks her if she is alright afterward she acts all flighty, and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why, and what was going on.

Just like with the previous 3 books, I absolutely fell in love with this 4th book and the characters in it!!

Shane and Nikki were both awesome characters, but they were also extremely HOT. I think this is one of the hottest books by Harper Sloan that I’ve read…which is saying something because they are all flaming!!

Shane is quite the dirty talker. 😛

Reviewer: ~Vir~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

This year is all about healing the heart, Scorpio. It’s time to leave negative attitudes and stoic facades at the door and let others see the real, more vulnerable you.
Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his nemesis, Callaghan Glover. 
Especially his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.

Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past.

“Scorpio Hates Virgo” contains sarcasm, sexual content, a slightly sappy HEA, and an unhealthy obsession with dinosaurs…It can be read as a standalone.

It’s not a secret that I love Anyta Sunday. I am a huge fan.

She gives me that mood and makes me forget the world around.
Her stories make me smile and gives me a silly face all the way while reading them.With Scorpio hates Virgo the experience has been a little bit different though (at least during the first half of the book) so my “Anyta-I-love-you” face, this time has been more subtle more “I-love-you-but-something-is-a-bit-off-here” face. A “yes but no” face. Something like this:

But leave it to Anyta to overtake that little pothole on my way and finally give me what I wanted. Leave it to her to deliver the sexy and cute I craved. Because, after a first half not feeling it, she finally did it and even if not my favorite and, even if I was expecting more (my fault and just myself to blame), this book gave me something, and I finished it loving Percy and Cal and with the peaceful and beautiful feeling Anyta always gives me.

She makes me see the world full of rainbows and unicorns

Release Date: August 23, 2017
Genre(s): M/M Romance, Sci-Fi Military
Reviewer: ~Simone~
Rating: 5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

Take a chance.
Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin doesn’t trust easily, and he most certainly doesn’t trust spies. He’ll work with them if ordered to, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it. Except Agent Sean Delaney is proving to be the exception to the rule. There’s something about Sean that gets under Alexei’s skin and won’t let go. Alexei would be lying if he said he wasn’t interested in what lay beneath the agent’s mask. When they’re assigned together for a mission, Alexei vows to keep Sean safe all while trying to coax the hot agent into his bed.
Hold onto hope.
Agent Sean Delaney has spent his entire adult life living a lie for his country. When the MDF tasks him with finding evidence of criminal wrong-doing against the owner of a private military company, Sean knows exactly how to play the game to get what he wants. He just doesn’t know how to handle Alexei’s advances, nor his own attraction to the younger soldier. Being a spy is lonely work, and Sean knows he should keep his distance, but saying no to Alexei is impossible from the moment they first kiss.
In a world of lies, the truth can be deadly.
When the mission takes a turn for the worse, the only thing left to do is run. In the wake of betrayal, and in the path of danger, can their fragile trust survive the battle?

What happens when two stubborn hotheads collide?😜…Sparks will fly…

Cool fire effect,  looks like fire bender stuff. #avatar

Okay…in Sean’s and Alexei’s case it is more like a blaze, but I did not expect anything less after they encountered each other in the last book and I could not get my grabby hands fast enough on their story. 

Months have passed since ex-CIA Agent Sean Delaney -now working for the intelligence division of the Metahuman Defense Force– was assigned to Alpha Team for a mission and although this was a one-off so far, he and Alexei Dvorkin of all people formed a tentative friendship based on mutual respect and trust.

Everything beyond a friendship would be a bad idea, right?😉 A very bad idea.

For a variety of reasons…Well, that is was both men persuaded themselves, since for one, Alexei doesn’t do spies due to his past and Sean, on the other hand, is a shadow. A man who can slip into any role, pretending to be someone he wasn’t and this dangerous life lead him to stay on his own, to cut off most of his ties and rather be lonely than risk the life of someone he is close to.
