Savage Bite: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Savage Shifters #1) by Milly Taiden


Savage Bite: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance (Savage Shifters #1) by Milly Taiden


Blurb:
Zuri Primrose hasn't been on a date since her divorce over a year ago. About to turn the big 4-0, she's living the life of a hermit without any sex. Her mother isn't going to let her daughter stay single for long. She's gotten Zuri an invite to a shifter ball where she hopes Zuri will find the man who’s going to screw her into a pretzel and give her a dozen babies. Zuri's sure her mom didn't expect for a shifter to up and toss her over his shoulder and run out. Nope. Mom so did not see that coming. 

Savage McKane doesn't do parties. Or people. And he certainly doesn't do fancy clothing. But when his friend, the town sheriff, asks him to help as security for the event, he shows up despite his lack of desire to be there. He didn't expect to find his mate, nor the inability to control his animal, and run off with her. But now that he's got her, he's not going to let her go. His bear is demanding he keep her and Savage is in full agreement. 

Zuri and Sav might be complete opposites, but that doesn't stop the love growing between them. Zuri is realizing powerful truths about herself; she can’t live without him. But will she stay alive long enough to tell him? For Sav, nothing is more important than getting his mate to realize his love for her. He didn't run up a mountain with her on his shoulder just to let her walk away. He will happily tear anyone limb from limb who tries to stop him. 

My review:
Savage Bite is the first in a new series by the fabulous Milly Taiden. If you like your males big, brawny and alpha you are going to love bear shifter Savage McKane. Zuri Primrose is a 39 year old divorcee and has been having a tough time finding herself again. Getting caught up by a big ol bear who is claiming she is his mate shouldn’t be the gateway to finding her younger self but it does it for Zuri. This is a fun sexy read that will make you want a bear of your own.

Bound for a Bite (A Vampire Rogues Book) by Chris Marie Green




Blurb:
A Hot Vampire Romance with Ultra Sexy Bite!

A vampire’s erotic revenge is always best when it’s served hot. And that’s Edmond Marburn’s plan as he tracks down Gisele, the female vamp who betrayed him, robbing him of his soul two years ago with her bite.

He’s never going to stop until he has her.
But when he does catch up to his luscious prey, he finds the tables have been turned.

Edmond is no longer the pursuer—he’s now Gisele’s angry captive.
The carnal games are about to begin.

She’s sultry, sensual, and she’s pulling out all the racy stops to tame this beast who has vowed to destroy her.
But what neither vampire counted on was finding something within each other that draws them together in a sexually charged connection—one that binds them, obsesses them, and ultimately goes deeper than vengeance…

This is the sequel to the first book in this miniseries, Hot for a Bite, and I hope you enjoy!                                                                                                                  


My review:
Bound for a Bite is the follow up to Hot for a Bite. This is Edmond and Gisele’s story. I’ll admit to not having liked either too much in Hot for a Bite. Edmond was super EMO and Gisele was a bit of a spoiled brat. This book teaches them both things that their long lives didn’t. They end up teaching each other. I loved Sam and Corinna’s sub story. Bound for a Bite is sexy as hell but I will admit to wanting to slap both Edmond and Gisele in the head at times but the ending made it all worthwhile.

My review:

I bought this because I love an Alpha hero and because the proceeds will benefit 4 Paws for Ability, a worldwide agency that enriches the lives of children and veterans with disabilities by training and placing quality, task-trained service dogs. I was not disappointed and I don’t think you will be either.
  1. SHAYLA BLACK - DEVOTED TO WICKED – A fun and sexy second chance at romance by the incredible Shayla Black. Enjoy a bit of Alpha groveling on the beaches of Cancun.

  3. MARI CARR - POWER STRUGGLE – What would you do if the “One who got away” walked back in the door ten years later? Carter and Bree are best friends and knock heads at every turn but they are meant to be and he means to prove it to her.
  4.  KRIS COOK - CIA COVERT TEAM: RAINBOW KNIGHTS (M/M) – This story disappointed me because I love m/m. I loved the concept, I loved the guys but the dialog just grated on my nerves.
  5.  ANISSA GARCIA - WITH A VENGEANCE – This was an emotional rollercoaster of a short story. This is a new to me author but I will be checking out her backlist.
  6.  KYM GROSSO - HARD ASSET – I really liked this story right up to the end when I screamed NO!
  7.    JENNA JACOB - REVENGE ON THE ROCKS – Guy in love with an older woman has to show her what their love could be.

I really got a kick out of this book and found some new authors to read. This is for a really good cause so I am going to give away a copy. Enter below:

Ax To Grind (Kenni Lowry #3) by Tonya Kappes



Blurb:
Southerners keep their secrets swept under the rug, but what happens when that rug goes up for sale?

Bestselling author Berlye Stone, the most famous citizen to ever come out of Cottonwood, Kentucky, has died and put all her worldly possessions up for auction, but not without leaving one more manuscript behind. A hidden tell-all about Cottonwood that’s got more gossip than a ladies’ luncheon.

When Beryle’s assistant turns up with an ax in her back and the only witness is in a coma, Sheriff Kenni Lowry reckons someone in town will do anything to keep the manuscript from seeing the light of day. Her poppa’s ghost returns to help piece together the life of the Beryle he once knew, but his memory’s a little foggy, and any misstep could cause them a world of trouble. With the help of Deputy Finn Vincent, can Kenni sort through the secrets buried in Beryle’s books, or will this be her final chapter?

Books in the Kenni Lowry Mystery Series:

FIXIN’ TO DIE (#1)
SOUTHERN FRIED (#2)
AX TO GRIND (#3)
SIX FEET UNDER (#4) Spring 2018
 

My review:
Crime is much more fun in small town Kentucky.  Sheriff Kenni Lowry has a murder to solve and a town full of suspects including her Poppa except he is already dead and so has an alibi. In Ax To Grind we have murder, mystery, small town gossip and a bit of romance. This is the perfect book for a cool autumn afternoon’s escape.

Demon Hunting with a Sexy Ex (Demon Hunting #5) by Lexi George




Blurb:

Southern-fried demons. Hell-raising rednecks. And one killer ex-boyfriend...

This with is on fire

Cassandra Ferguson McKenna, aka the Witch of Devil River, has only one thing to say to her demon-hunting ex: We are never ever getting back together. Sure, Duncan Dalvhani may be the hottest thing this side of the Mason-Dixon line. He’s got a body to die for—which is hard to ignore when he skinny dips in her river every day—and swears he loves her. But as a demon hunter, Duncan is the sworn enemy of a demonoid sorceress like Cassandra. Give him another chance to break her heart? Witch, please. But when Cassandra is attacked by a werewolf, Duncan not only comes to her rescue, he helps her take on a band of magic-drunk moonshiners, fire-breathing demons, shifty shapeshifters, and a pet Sasquatch named Sugar. Welcome to Alabama. But when a portal opens up for even more hellaciousness, Cassandra has to admit that Duncan is slowly opening her heart—to a whole new world of unearthly delights...
 

My review:
Welcome back to Hannah Alabama where the paranormal is normal and the absurd is an everyday occurrence. In this installment we get Cassandra and Duncan’s story. Cassandra is a witch who knows how to hold a grudge. Duncan is the Dalvhani warrior who broke her heart. It has been almost 200 years and Duncan is determined to get her to forgive him. But he will have to do it while they fend off deranged werewolves, fire-breathing demons and trying to figure out why everyone wants the orb.
This is a fun addition to the series and the author gives us clues as to who may be hooking up in the future. Watching Cassie deal with fear of being hurt again while dealing with the nuttiness that is her life is a total hoot. I loved watching Verbena grow and look forward to learning more about her in the future. This book can be read standalone but is much more fun if you’ve read the earlier books in the series.

Bulldog's Girls by Ann Mayburn





Blurb:
Amaya gave up everything to protect her daughter, Peyton, but it wasn't enough and a sadistic enemy she thought was dead is tormenting her from beyond the grave. In a desperate attempt to keep her daughter safe, Amaya flees to the small Michigan beach town of Green Haven where she meets Paul McGregor, a retired football player and her new neighbor.
Paul, known around town as Bulldog, finds himself drawn to the sassy, beautiful young woman and her adorable little girl, yet is puzzled why a woman who is as attracted to him as he is to her constantly pushes him away. When he finds out about the evil hunting Amaya and Peyton he vows that he will do anything to keep them safe and convince them to be his girls forever.

My review:
Bulldog's Girls by Ann Mayburn is an incredibly sweet tale of love and survival. Amaya is a survivor. She has survived an incredible ordeal and come out the other side stronger than before but it came at a cost. Now she is under attack again. She and her daughter head to the small town of Green Haven to escape the new threat and meet retired NFL football player Paul “Bulldog” McGregor. Paul has been coasting since his retirement but meeting Amaya and her daughter has shifted the axis of his existence. He will do whatever is necessary to keep them safe. They are about to learn where he got the name Bulldog.
I really enjoyed this book and read it in one sitting. I could not put it down! The author mixed suspense, humor and romance in just the right proportions. Highly recommend.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Resisting Redemption by Amabel Daniels




Blurb:

Desperate for a paycheck after forfeiting a chance at her dream career, Roxie Malone accepts a job at a law firm, assisting a hard-to-please and too tempting criminal attorney. Struggling to censor her sarcasm and adjust to the expectations of the challenging man, she maintains one goal. Do not get fired. As long as she refuses to mix business with pleasure, she might have a shot at earning the bonus at the end of the case.
Me, assistant. You, boss.
Losing the drive that made him one of the top lawmen at his firm, Grant Newland takes a leave of absence at the worst possible time. Upon hearing his friend is charged for murder, Grant races back to work to fight for justice. But concentrating on the case is easier said than done with the gorgeous, no-nonsense assistant trailing behind him.
Blurring the lines…
Roxie and Grant agree to leave their pasts behind them, opting to swallow the pain of the sacrifices they’d made. They focus on answering one question. Who killed famous singer, Josh Warren? Chasing clues and stumbling over dead ends, they try to deny their attraction to each other. It’s only a matter of time before they can debate whether it might be better to tackle their case as a team, instead of resisting each other.

My review:

Resisting Redemption is the best mystery I’ve read in awhile. Yes, there is a romantic element but it wasn’t as exciting to me as the who dunnit was. So many suspects and so many motives. The ugliness of the crime was offset by the sweetness of the budding romance. I really enjoyed this story.
