Seducing the Saint (Saints and Sinners #1) by Melissa Schroeder



Blurb:
Liberty Wainwright needs a man and not just any man. She needs Brady St. James, otherwise known as the Saint. His skills and knowledge make him the only choice to rescue her father. Now, if she can convince him to help her, she’ll just have to ignore her cravings for the man she’s never forgotten.
Brady is stunned the woman who left him high and dry is back and asking for his help. Their affair had been doomed from the start. Libby liked to live by the rules and Brady lived to break them. He’d sworn she’d be back, but he hadn’t expected it to take over six years for her to return.
The moment he accepts her mission, they discover their passion for each other is still smoldering. Unable to resist each other, their attraction sparks into an inferno that threatens to overpower all rational thinking. Libby and Brady realize they still might have a chance at love and happily ever after. If they don’t get themselves killed first.

My review:
Fans of Romancing the Jewel will get a kick out of this steamy scifi second chance romance. Archeologist Liberty Wainwright needs help finding her estranged father. The problem is the guy that can help her on her quest is hunky Brady St. James, aka the Saint. He took her innocence in more ways than one six years earlier but that was then and this is now. Except they never really had any closure and Brady is damned if he is going to let her get away again. I enjoyed this fast paced sexy romp and look forward to future installments.

Were Me Out: Shift Happens Book Four by Robyn Peterman



Blurb:

Why do I have to have my tail in a knot for the one hot, sexy Werewolf who can’t seem to keep his Johnson in his pants? 

I’m a nice girl—really I am. I’m just a typical computer-hacking, knife-throwing, Star Trek-obsessed, overeducated Werewolf nerd who can’t seem to get her love life to compute.  

However, it’s time to grow up and face the music or more accurately the man I’m in love with… Junior aka Jacob Wilson—the Alpha of the Georgia Pack. First I’ll have to stand up to some nasty gals who’s pants are so tight I can see their religion. Then I'll claim my man. 

What should be an easy feat, gets sucktastic when you throw in a three hundred year old fabulous gay Vampyre, an antiquated motherboard from the 90’s and a challenge from the vicious, deadly Alabama Pack. Not to mention a libido that is out of control. Mine. 

So I’m just gonna dive in—head first and eyes closed. Love conquers all. Right? As long as reality doesn’t wear me out, I plan to win.

My review:
Laugh out loud goodness from the first page to the last. Paranormal rom com at its finest. Buy this book and enjoy. I really loved all the characters and was thrilled that Junior and Sandy got their heads out of their tails and took the plunge.

Elite Elements: Seven-Novel Cohesive Military Boxed Set by Jennifer Kacey , Heather Long , Sabrina York , Anna Alexander , Rebecca Royce , Saranna DeWylde , Virginia Nelson




Elite Elements: Seven-Novel Cohesive Military Boxed Set by Jennifer Kacey , Heather Long , Sabrina York , Anna Alexander , Rebecca Royce , Saranna DeWylde , Virginia Nelson

Blurb:
Elite Elements
Book Three in the Elite Warriors Series
For most of their lives they’ve lived in the shadows, pulled from every nation and background, united by one common cause—an all-consuming hatred of Red Wolf. The unquenchable desire to rid the world of his very existence fuels them, drives them.
These men and women pulled the fallen Elite from the snow-covered wreckage of Operation Phoenix years ago. To some they’re called saviors. To others they’re called traitors.
As Red Wolf’s power grows, the end game they’ve sacrificed everything for may destroy them all. Or just maybe they’ll finally find the peace they’ve been hunting for.
Revenge is their salvation but is there enough humanity left inside them to save?
A new end. A new beginning. Elite Elements.
Satisfying Silicon by Virginia Nelson
Lady Dead may be number five on his hit list, but she trusts that Silicon will come for her. Save her or kill her... either way, it'll be a hot ride.
Cesium’s Capture by Sabrina York
The mission is all that matters...until he meets her.
Vibranium’s Truth by Anna Alexander
It’s not the size of the gun that makes a warrior, but the strength of her convictions.
Palladium’s Confession by Saranna DeWylde
A defrocked priest and his benediction of death are no match for this BBW on a mission.
Francium's Chance by Rebecca Royce
Just because he's on the right side of the fight doesn't mean she can trust him.
Asset: Arsenic by Heather Long
Arsenic is playing a dangerous game, but one with hefty payout—Red Wolf’s head on a platter.
 Kryptonite’s Oxygen by Jennifer Kacey
To rid the world of the deadliest wolf a broken girl must trust her kryptonite.

My review:
Elite Elements is a fantastic conclusion to the Elite Warriors Series. These stories can be read standalone for the most part but when read together they tell an even larger tale. Some of my favorite authors shine in this wonderful boxed set. Fans of romantic suspense are sure to enjoy this book.
Satisfying Silicon by Virginia Nelson – Lady Dead is an arms dealer and on the same trail as Silicon to find and take down folks close to Red Wolf the ultimate bad guy. When she is taken captive she knows he will find her. Whether to kill her or claim her is up for conjecture. Knowing he is coming for her is all that gets her through. You have to love a kick a$$ shady lady. Silicon will be tested but nothing worth having comes easy.
 Cesium’s Capture by Sabrina York – Coop is on a mission. He has to figure out whether Natalia is the good guy or the bad guy and take out her sleaze of a boyfriend along the way. Watching these two get together is a the only thing that kept me from crying and cussing the bad guys.
Vibranium’s Truth by Anna Alexander – Evan takes on human traffickers and meets his soul mate along the way. This story is not for the faint of heart.
 Palladium’s Confession by Saranna DeWylde – I love this story. Wen has a backstory to make angels weep. If anyone deserves happiness it is him. Hekate may just the one to bring him salvation.
Francium's Chance by Rebecca Royce – Tough as nails con man falls for his marks wife. These good guys may do bad things but they have a code. Never more evident than in this terrific story.
Asset: Arsenic by Heather Long – Sometimes being a female operative really sucks. Addison has put her life and body on the line to get close to the mole and finally the bad guys. This story had me laughing and crying. The characters were so vivid it was like watching a movie.
Kryptonite’s Oxygen by Jennifer Kacey – This story ties them all up and is as frenetic and exciting as you could hope for. Clark and Catarina’s story will keep you on the edge of your seat and yelling out loud.
There is not a bad story in the bunch. Run out and get your copy.

Sassy Ever After: You Bet Your Sass (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Black Paw Wolves Book 3) by Melanie James



Sassy Ever After: You Bet Your Sass (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Black Paw Wolves Book 3)
by Melanie James

Blurb:
After losing a bet with Taavi Olsen, Lars Jakobsen finds himself on stage for a weekend doing something he never thought he’d do: Stripping for the ladies at one of Blue Creek’s most infamous establishments, The Horny Wolf.
When the unmistakable sweet scent of his mate nearly knocks him on his ass, all bets are off. Or are they?
Sofia Martinez wants a one-night stand, but Lars wants more. Will she keep him chasing his own tail? Or will they get their happily ever after?

My review:
You meet your mate in the most unlikely of places. Lars has lost a bet. He either submits to a less dominant wolf or spends a weekend stripping at The Horny Wolf. Guess which he picks.
Sofia has had a crappy day made worse by walking in on her boyfriend screwing someone on her couch. The disrespect hurts more than the indiscretion. Her gal pals drag her to The Horny Wolf to take her mind off of things.
The meeting between Lars and Sofia is surreal and super sexy. The drama and angst are almost too much but the authors sense of humor takes the edge off and makes this a most enjoyable read.

Bad Case of Loving You (Wolf Mates Book 5) by Dakota Cassidy



Blurb:
Bad Case of Loving You, Book 5 in the Wolf Mates series by USA Today bestselling paranormal romance author Dakota Cassidy, is here.

Return to Cedar Glen, home to a laugh-out-loud cast of characters including Crosby Nash, a werewolf with amnesia! Love is in the air. Or is it, as Cedar Glens resident psychiatric nurse struggles to discover the cause and cure her patient.

Werewolf Ella Stills has just one question: What exactly does it take to leave one's life mate? Particularly when said life mate is a stubborn, stupid-headed, liar-liar-pants-on-fire cheater? 

Apparently the answer is. . .amnesia. Not hers. His. 

Crosby Nash, Mr. Hotshot Super-fine Lycan Lawyer, has gone and gotten himself conked on the head. Not only does he no longer remember Ella, their recent separation, or his dastardly cheatin' heart—Crosby doesn't even remember that he's a werewolf. A psychiatric nurse by trade, Ella jumps at the pack's offer of a divorce if she aids Crosby in his rehabilitation. Once his memory returns, she'll be free. 

But Ella didn't count on Crosby's lost memory turning him back into the man she fell in love with. . .the one she can't resist. And when it becomes clear the pack needs Crosby to regain his memory for a reason—a reason curiously related to the woman he may have cheated with—it's a mystery Ella can't resist.

Though she'll probably wish she had. . . 

This paranormal romantic comedy contains humor, shifters, werewolves, and LOL fun. Bad Case of Loving You is not intended for readers under the age of 18. 

Previously Published: (2011) Ellora's Cave | Original title: Honey, I Shrunk the Werewolf.
 

My review:
Dakota Cassidy writes snarky, sexy, laugh out loud romance and this paranormal romantic comedy is no different. This hilarious second chance/amnesia romance ticks off every checkbox for done to death tropes and still manages to be outrageously unique. I laughed my way through Ella and Crosby’s troubles and cheered when they finally manage to find their way back to each other.

My review:
This is wonderful compilation of stories guaranteed to make your heart go pitty pat for a fabulous cause.
I love anthologies because they introduce me to authors I might not have read otherwise.  I will admit that my favorites in this set are buy authors I’ve read before but I’ve found some new reads to look into as well.
Accidentally In Love,  Love, Honor, and Ink, Secrets of a Silver Moon and His Moonstruck Wolf  are fun reads but authors I love and these stories can be read standalone without having read the series they are drawn from. But I can heartily recommend said series.
There isn’t a bad story in the bunch. I will admit to being surprised by Highland Valentine because I am not a huge fan of time travel romances but the characters sucked me in and made me feel for them to the point I was rooting out loud. I laughed my way through Cupid Stupid and will definitely be checking out the worlds of Krystal Shannan, Julia Mills and Rebecca Rivard.
I really enjoyed this entire book and heartily recommend you grab it while you can.

Sassy Ever After: Slave To Your Sass (Kindle Worlds Novella) by Marianne Morea



Blurb:
Close Enough to Touch…or Slap.
Half breed shifter MacKenna Quinn doesn’t do trust. Not since waking to find her lover gone and the words I’m sorry scrawled on a note beside her pillow. Since then she’s moved on. A new job in a new town, until she finds herself face to face with her past.
Unfinished Business.
Liam Lowe, Alpha of the Catamount Pride, can have any woman he wants. Problem is he doesn't want any of them. A loner, he doesn’t do social, but an unexpected guest at his brother’s wedding changes the rules of engagement.
Old sparks turn to flame, rekindling old passion and regret, but that passion is tested to the limit when MacKenna’s job threatens more than just her life. Can the two put their unfinished business aside long enough to save more than one life?

My review:
I both loved and hated this story. I love the characters and wanted so much more. Watching Mac & Liam reunite was fun and sexy as hell. They fit in well to the Sassy Ever After world but I would have loved them to have their own book. I want to see Mac & Liam take on her uncle. I want to see what kind of wolf Zachary grows up to be. I guess it just goes to show great writing when you want to crawl into the book and live there for a while.
