I don’t usually start with what I don’t like about a story but this times it is not so much about what I don’t like but what makes sense. Apparently in Rejected Wolf shape shifters have gone public and the government put them all on reservations. This makes no sense to me because the author indicated in the story that the shape shifters are Native Americans, a majority of whom are already on reservations. Why would you put them on a reservation when they are already stuck living on reservations?

There is also the situation about Tala and her brother Tyee, how could they not talk over the years? I have siblings that I did not grow up with but we have been in contact with each other off and on through out the years. So again, how did they not talk and communicate in some way? I guess you could blame the bitter mother but Tala is older and capable.

I did find a few edits but nothing that really takes away from the already shaky story line and anticlimactic ending.

Book Cover
The book cover is rather generic and could fit any storyline about werewolves.

Blurb
The blurb is just right, short, sweet and to the point, giving me a taste of the story without telling me a condensed version of the story.

Book’s Blurb
He needs her to find the lost wolf spirit of her ancestors.
Hurt and rejected, Tala fled her home and her pack years ago.
Forced to return to the shifter reservation, Tala must face those who bullied her for her size.

The one man who shattered her heart is now the alpha, and he needs her help.
Her brother is missing and a new danger lurks outside Evergreen’s borders, but is Tala willing to risk herself for the one man who rejected her long ago?

Second Love by Mary Goldberger

Wren has found her mate but choses not to act on it primarily out fear. Plus, he seems to be interested in another pack member making it easier for her to not stake her claim.

Colwyn has found his second chance mate but is considering a chosen mate. He does not want the pain of losing another mate.

Second Love contains a great story with multiple subplots and twists. Second Love also contains a lesson about what love should be and shouldn’t be. I think that author put a lot of thought into her characters, especially the main characters and that the story has so much to offer once the author deals with some of the holes in her story.

I really like the story line and most of the characters were for the most part likable. I just feel like there are a few holes in the story, for example where did Imogen disappear to? She just up and disappeared with no explanation like the author just dropped her until the end what was the point of Imogen? Next hole is more like a huge question, how the heck does Kate convince the pack females the she is Colwyn’s mate and that she is a wronged woman? And while we are at it, how did Kate figure out that Wren was a threat to her made up relationship to Colwyn?

Second Love is also needing a lot of editing, there a lot ‘her’ where ‘he’ should be and vise versa. There were a few sentences that I needed to read twice to make sense of them. Editing and filling in holes would definitely smooth out the whole story while improving the it. In the mean time I am giving the Second Love a 2-star a review with the stipulation that if the author ever edits/makes changes to the story I will be happy to read it again and review it again.

Quotes
I really liked this quote because of how true it is love should not be selfish or manipulative.

“When you love, it shouldn’t be selfish.”—Donovan

Book Cover
I like the cover, it stands out.

Blurb
The first 5 sentences were just enough to give me a taste of what Second Love was about. The last to sentences seemed like overkill and unnecessary.

Book’s Blurb
When a one loses their mate, it can destroy them.
Wren knew this firsthand watching her father go through it. Not wanting any mate of hers to suffer the same fate, Wren decided to keep to herself not wanting to find her mate.
Losing his mate so suddenly, Colwyn lost himself in other women. He didn’t want to love, and lose, another again so he started making plans.
Two wounded individuals meet unexpectedly and Fate decides to intervene.
When you find your mate, it seems nothing can stop what Fate has already decided.

With as often as I have read this book, I really should have written this review along time ago. I have honestly read In Name Only nearly once a year since I purchased the book in 2012. This story is great if you are looking for an emotional roller coaster ride. One second, I was laughing, the next I was mad and ready to strangle that twit, Dina and the next second, I was wanting to cry.

I really liked Skylar; she has survived some pretty hard knocks. Ben needs surgery to pull his head out of his arrogant pathetic ass. It a pity Skylar didn’t get relocated before Ben caught up to her, he should have been forced to chase her down giving him time to cool down and think before opening his stupid mouth.

I do like In Name Only and should give it a 5-star rating after the number of times I have read it but with the number of edits that need fixing I just can’t do that. The story flows well for the most part as far as continuity in the story line goes it’s the extra words or missing words that create the speed bumps in that detract from the story. If the author ever decides to edit this book, I will be happy to change my review.

Heat
In Name Only had a couple of tastefully written bedroom scenes that definitely had steam rising of my tablet.

Book Cover
The cover is nice but does not match the story given that Skylar was married in a court house with out a wedding dress so all this cover does is give away the ending.

Blurb
Think the blurb is a bit winded giving away to much of the story. I think half the story is cliff noted in the blurb.

Book’s Blurb
Skylar Carter a shy, widowed dressmaker, and disowned from her affluent family, finds herself again married to the same type of man she vowed never to get involved with, all because she let go of her reserve for one night. Now she was in a name only marriage with a man that hates her. USN Commander Benjamin Smith was floored when he see the beautiful dressmaker sitting at the family table at his sister wedding. He was instantly drawn to her in a way he had never experienced. He wants her to be his at least for a little while. After a night of unbridled passion Ben wasn’t sure he could let her go. Until he thinks Sky has betrayed him, forcing him to do something he never wanted, and Benjamin is never forced to do anything he did not want. Now he is married Sky making it clear it the marriage will be in name only. As he and Sky begin to share a home, he begins to wonder was he wrong about her?

Scarlett is certainly having an interesting week, she finds her mate, Ian, with a wedding ring on his finger. The King of Centaurs and her co-worker, the science teacher, wants her. She has a new friend that stabs anyone who makes Scarlett uncomfortable and a body guard that hardly says anything to her.

It was easier to pick what I didn’t like in Scarlett then it was to pick what I liked. The characters, and there a number of characters, are all pretty cool and likable. I did not like the science teacher, he seemed pretty odd from the beginning. The story line for Scarlett was well though out and well written with few to no edits to speak of. There are a couple of boring spots but they are fairly short lived. I look forward to reading more books in the series.

Book Cover
Based on the description of Scarlett, I am not sure that the cover actually matches the story. Scarlett has mouse brown hair, to me that mean a little to medium brown, limp hair in a constant bun, which is clearly not what the model is sporting.

Blurb
I like blurbs that give you a taste of the story without giving to much away, the blurb for Scarlett gives your that. I don’t like blurbs that have questions about the story at the end and this blurb also delivers on this. Scarlett blurb needs minor editing just because of those stupid questions because adding questions to the end of a blurb is just stupidly pointless.

Book’s Blurb
One crazy week will change Scarlett’s life forever.

For the last ten years, Scarlett thought her Fated Mate was dead … until he hit her with a buggy in the shampoo aisle of the grocery store three days after she moved to a small town in the Georgia mountains.

That little bump leads to a girlfriend road trip, a hot centaur, a creepy co-worker, and a gremlin sidekick who stabs first and asks questions … never.

When the local romance book club – The Crazy Cats – adopted her all bets were off. They planned her wedding and helped her settle into their small town before she knew what was happening.

Will, she chose the charming Derek Heiss (the King of Centaurs) or Ian Beckett (a small town deputy she was born to love)?

Because of what happened on the Gorison Traveler there is now an alliance with the Veslors. The Velsor king has sent a grouping to Defcon Red to assist in securing the safety of a colony. Abby who is being hounded by the press is on Defcon Red to make sure that the Veslors are being treated well because she feels responsible for them. Where Abby wants this alliance with the Veslors to work Bradley Rogers wants it to fail without even giving it a chance and if Abby suffers in the process all the better.

Mission: Guardian Angel has a great story line and like the other series from Laurann Dohner maintains an amazing continuity between the books in a series. I liked Abby in The Gorison Traveler Incident and after reading Mission: Guardian Angel I think she is awesome; she isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in. I also like Drak and his grouping, the whole dynamic of a grouping is an interesting concept. All the characters, even the bad guys, had dimension and personality like all of the characters that this author creates.

Over all I loved Mission: Guardian Angel, it was very imaginative and well written and deserves the 5-star rating I am giving it.

Quotes
The were 2 quotes that I wanted to share but the second one was rather long and as much I liked that quote, I did not think the author would appreciate me using them both because of how long they are. With that in mind I read both quotes several times trying to decide on which one I liked more and this one won by a hair.

“That’s not what I’m known for, Milts. I destroy careers by exposing assholes who don’t conform to fleet standards. That would include sexually harassing women. Saying crude things falls into that category.”—Abby

Book Cover
I really like the cover; I think it really covers the whole story line.

Blurb
Like always with this author the blurb is well written and gives the buys a taste of the story without telling the whole story

Book’s Blurb
Ever since her friend Vivian mated a Veslor, Abby Thomas has been curious about the mysterious aliens. She also has a vested interest in making sure their newfound relationship with United Earth is a success, prompting her to take a job on a military vessel to ensure the Veslor grouping stationed there are treated fairly. It doesn’t hurt that they’re easy to look at. When one Veslor in particular catches her attention, she hopes he’s nothing like the humans she’s dated, who were only interested in her bank balance and connections.

Drak and his Veslor grouping quietly endured unfair treatment aboard Defcon Red…until a beautiful spitfire spoke up on their behalf, earning herself nemeses among the ship’s fleet. When those foes try to silence Abby, Drak makes it his mission to protect her. The harrowing experience quickly bringing them so close, Drak is determined to make Abby his mate…if her enemies don’t ruin his chance, permanently.

I found The Alpha King and His Human Mate on Wattpad and decided to see if it was published on Amazon and was excited to see that it was. I really like the characters, especially Jillian, that girl shows no fear, even when she is probably quaking in her shoes. I think Edric reactions to what they learn about Jillian are pretty mellow considering all the mystery surrounding.

The Alpha King and His Human Mate had me drawn into it with in just a few pages then I started running into edits. There are some major edits that need to be address, I can’t understand how the author posted The Alpha King and His Human Mate on Amazon when there so many major edits. There chapters skipped or missing after chapter 25. Chapters 29 to 31 are repeated word for word. There are also sections where the chapter cuts off in the middle and dives into a completely different part of the story then a few chapters later only to continue the story line from a few chapters earlier in a later chapter. The Alpha King and His Human Mate is so disorganized that it should have been edited before posting it on Amazon. Until the edits are made The Alpha King and His Human Mate is not worth the $4.99 that I paid for it.

Book Cover
I like the picture on the cover.

Blurb
The blurb needs some minor editing but it works.

Book’s Blurb
Jillian is a human, going to an all Werewolf school, how did her parents not know that they were sending her to such a place? What makes it worse is that the Alpha King comes to the school once a week to see if he can find his mate or girls for his harems. What happens when he claims Jillian as his mate? Will she accept it, or will she run for the hills? Then someone decides that they want Jillian and the Alpha dead. What will happen when the Alpha finds out who Jillian really is, she isn’t as innocent as she seems. Join Jillian, Edric, and her friend Kimberly on a harrowing adventure of love, laughter, and a whole lot of sass.

Let me start with the book itself, it needs better editing, is it Patty or Paty? There is no continuity in the spelling of the main characters name. There are a lot of characters and that is great but I think there were a lot of blanks as far as how they all fit in there. For example, how is it that Lucifer is Patricia’s father when her dad is dead? And is he also her brother’s dad? There is a lot of jumping ahead in time leaving out so much that would tie the whole story together.

You Will Regret Rejecting Me is not a happily ever after story and with that the end felt like a lame cliff hanger and it was anticlimactic, it was the worst.

Finally, there is the price. I usually never touch on the price because authors need to make a living but this time, I need to same something because $9.99 is way too much for a 59-page book that needs a lot of work before it can even remotely be considered a decent story. Where it stands now it’s not even worth 99 cents.

I came across The Alphas Unwanted Mate on Facebook and decided it was interesting but it was on Dreame, on of the rip off apps. So, I added it to my list of books to purchase when it becomes an e-book or book. Imagen my excitement when I found it on Amazon; but there are a few discrepancies between the Amazon version and the Dreame version that have me scratching my head.

The version I purchased on Amazon says the author is Jane D. Coffey and the blurb has the name of the main character wrong. The version on Dreame is apparently authored by Charlotte Stockdale and the blurb has the actual name of the main character. But the actual story based on the teaser from the Dreame version is identical to the version on Amazon. I suppose one of those author names is a penname and if that is the case then they created some confusion when I share this review. I am adding the link to the Dreame versions blurb so that you can also see what I am saying (https://www.dreame.com/novel/VZST7SZYMUvElRsdrchCrg%3D%3D-The-Alphas-Unwanted-Mate-(completed)-.html). I searched all over social media and could not find either potential author to see if they were connected, this has only added to my confusion as the author page on Amazon claimed that Jane Coffey has a Fb page and a twitter page neither of which I could find.

The Alphas Unwanted Mate has a potentially great story line but needs major editing especially the author’s notes, that do not belong in an actual book or e-book because they just slow down the pace and fluidity of the story line making it a real turn off. I had to take several breaks and read something else for a while. There was so much wrong with The Alphas Unwanted Mate that it overshadows the story line which is actually pretty good.

I did like the main characters but that is about all I can say about The Alphas Unwanted Mate at this time, if the story ever gets edited and someone lets me know so I can read the edited version then I will be happy to reevaluate my opinions of the story.

Heat
Amazon has the genre listed as Erotica and I have to laugh because honestly The Alphas Unwanted Mate has no heat or really no really graphic bedroom scenes so the joke is on us the readers

Blurb
The blurb needs some editing especially since the main characters name is Elle not Suzana. I am astounded that an author can butcher her own story making it unpalatable to readers. But with the question of who the author of The Alphas Unwanted Mate is and the editing issues, I really should not be surprised by the badly edited blurb

Book’s Blurb
Suzana, a sweet, charming wolf. Loved by everyone around her, no one could fault the beautiful wolf. That was until something tragic happened and immediately got blamed by everyone she knew ever knew. Everything around her changed. Only when the new family arrived to town her life would change again for the worst?…Or for the the better? Would her new found mate help change her life for the better or would he reject her for what had happened?

Title: Heartbeat Girl: A Vampire rock band romance

Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 5, 2021
Cover Design: LJ Anderson from Mayhem Cover Creations
 
Desperate times call for daring measures.
At least that’s what I tell myself for packing up and hitting the road with America’s newest and most popular rock band, The Oppressors. The lanky tattooed men are suspicious. Before I stepped on the bus with them, they’ve always made me nervous.
Something’s not adding up, though. There are strange events I’m noticing around them.
1. The hazy, vacant stare of the woman in their dressing room.
2. And the blood on her shirt.
3. The beat less sound of Liam’s heart when I lay my head on his chest.
I don’t think it’s safe to be close with the band, and most certainly not fall in love with one. So why do they make me feel like I’m a part of them? Their close-knitted trio.
What happens when I figure out what I’m dying to know?
This is a dual POV steamy vampire romance standalone that centers around bonds of love and friendship. 18+ dark, explicit sexual scenes, and lots of blood.
 
 
 
 
His jaw tightened. “You’ve been distant with me from the very beginning.”
 
“Hello. You’re not special. I’m distant with everyone. Do you see any friends around me, Liam? Do you see me call family or anyone besides those I’m supposed to?”
His eyes darkened. “I’m not special?”
Like the glassy expression in his azure gaze, his voice dripped with something sinister. I made a mistake. When he wedged his knee between my thighs, I knew he had a point to make. That he differed from everyone else.
“What are you doing?” I gasped as his leg rose further, forcing the tight skirt I wore to glide up. A fluttery feeling settled in my stomach. But there was also an urgent throb in my clit, especially when his thigh pressed against it. Oh, God. My face was so hot. My body was even hotter. What was happening?
He leaned down and whispered in my ear, “You think you can hide that from me?”
My ear and neck tingled. I didn’t know what that was until he moved his leg against me.
“That’s inappropriate,” I whispered.
He leaned his weight into me, so I felt his erection. “Does it feel like I want to be appropriate with you, Jayne?”
 
 
 
 
Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where possums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.

As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.

The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write.

The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

She writes and loves many different genres so sign up to her mailing list to keep updated on her releases!

TOUR: Roman’s War by Karen Renee

Title: Roman’s War

Series: Riot MC Biloxi Series Book 3
Author: Karen Renee
Genre: MC Romance (can be read as standalone)
Release Date: November 18, 2021
 
 
She’s playing with fire, but to win Roman’s heart, she’s willing to take her chances.
Time is running out for Trinity Benoit. She must get married to claim her grandfather’s legacy. In her family’s social circle, any man interested in her is only after the inheritance. Not to mention, those men aren’t her type.
Always attracted to bad boys, Roman Sanchez steals Trinity’s attention the day she lays eyes on him.
Nothing goes to plan when she approaches Roman with her proposal.
As the pyrotechnic expert for the Riot MC Biloxi chapter, Roman defends his brotherhood against any threats. He’s no stranger to bar brawls or street fights. Yet, he faces an epic battle against a woman who could send him to prison.
To protect himself and his club, he agrees to marry her.
It isn’t until after they say, ‘I do,’ that Roman discovers there’s more to his wife than blackmail and extortion. If Roman isn’t careful, he may find himself committed to something bigger (and possibly even better) than the Riot MC brotherhood.
Will Roman desert Trinity as soon as he’s fulfilled their bargain? Or will he find himself one of the ‘mighty’ who fall prey to love’s force?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Karen Renee is the author of the Riot Motorcycle Club, Beta, and O-Town series of books. She once crunched Nielsen ratings data but these days she brings her imagination to life by writing books. She has wanted to be a writer since she was very young, but it’s taken the last twenty plus years for her to amass enough courage and overall life experience to bring that dream to life. Some of those life experiences came from the wonderful world of advertising, banking, and local television media research. She is a proud wife and mother, and a Jacksonville native. When she’s not at the soccer field or cooking, you can find her at her local library, the grocery store, in her car jamming out to some tunes, or hibernating while she writes and/or reads books.
