Temptation Returns by Lisa Carlisle

Antonio had just returned home after completing his tour of duty in the military. His mission was to find the girl, Lina, who he could not  stop thinking about since the day he walked away from her prior to leaving for Afghanistan. He just hoped that she would be waiting for him.


Lina, a woman whose heart was broken by her first love years prior, was finally getting her life back on track. She had recently accepted the proposal of another man, finally moving on with her life. Was she complete happy, no. Did she have some undercurrent regrets, I think so. So when the day came that she spotted Antonio across the room at a rock concert in which both of them suspiciously won tickets to, her heart skipped a beat.

Could these two rekindle their love for each other? The fire, the passion, their need for each other. Antonio decided to go all in and try to rekindle their love, that was until he happened upon Lina and her bridle party at a club. He didn’t know, because Lina never told him, that she was engaged. He felt betrayed, lie to and heartbroken. Antonio again walked away, or did he.

You have to read this book. I read it in one night because I couldn’t put it down and neither will you. I rate it 5 stars!

Review of Tattered Loyalties by Carrie Ann Ryan


When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack’s stability is threatened, and he’s forced to take mate—only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn’t want.

Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she’s shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves, the consequences could be fatal.

As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn’t know who he can trust and Brie’s life is could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.

Gideon Brentwood, the Alpha of the Talon pack never expected his fated mate to be a submissive, let alone be one from another pack. Brie Jamerson, daughter of Willow and Jasper of the Redwood Pack knew who her fated mate was since she was seventeen years old. She never acted on it because, one she is a submissive wolf and two, he is an Alpha of the Talon Pack. It was her belief that Alphas’ and  Submissives’ never mated. It was unheard of. So besides her best friend/cousin Charlotte, no one knew until years later when her family went to the Talon territory to discuss business.

Suspense, ✔. Drama, ✔. Passion, ✔. Envy, ✔. An evil plot to rule the world, ✔. All and all Carrie Ann Ryan delivers. I don’t know how she can knock out hits like she does, but please if it involves keeping us with the Redwoods and now the Talons; keep them coming.

I really enjoyed that we were able to grow with Gideon and Brie on their becoming one within their relationship. But most importantly, I enjoyed how Brie was able to develop a relationship with in her new pack whilst also growing in her abilities as an Alpha/Submissive. She definitely threw out the preconceived notions that the elders and even her cousin Finn threw in her face. The Brentwood’s are growing on me and I look forward to reading more about them, especially with what’s to come.

The Alphas Game by JJ Jones

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_coverThe Alpha’s Game
by JJ Jones
As promised, I have read all five books of the series and I truly remained on the edge of my seat. After receiving my ARCs, I jumped into the world of Rosie, Kevin and Grey. JJ Jones took us on a paranormal mysterious journey involving Fairies, Witches and Shifters.
Book 1-5
Rosie, who through the use of her special abilities and her assistant/best friend Hope; has become one of the most sought out private investigators in Tampa, FL.  Because of this she became involved in a special case after being approached by Kevin; a gorgeous, lion shifting Federal Agent who operates solely by the book. What Rosie didn’t expect was to have an attraction to this client. (Doesn’t this always happen? LOL 😁) Kevin’s partner went rogue and he needed help tracking him down before he hurt himself or someone else. Whatever the case maybe, they needed to do it sooner than later.
Grey, also gorgeous, a wolf shifter gone rogue, ex-Federal Agent/Kevin’s partner and best friend is being controlled by an unknown source.
These books, in succession keep you on the edge of your seat as you venture through the chases, captures, kidnapping, love triangle, fight scenes, love scenes and conclusion. Basically it is full of paranormal suspense, drama and love.
Although I think the ending was kind of weak to my liking, I would suggest that you read this series.


R. E. Butler’s Book Series’ are a must Read!!!

Hello fellow Readers,
If you want to read something fun, exciting, romantic and sexy all wrapped up in one, two or three awesome shifter series; then R. E. Butler is the author for you. She is #3 on my personal list of favorite author’s to read.
I must remind you that many books featured in my blog are for adult readers only.
So far I’ve read the following series:
The Hyena Heat Series
Hyena Heat Series

Hyena Heat Series

I could not wait to get into this book. She introduced us to three Hyena brothers in R.E. Butler’s Wolf Mate Series Book 4. These, OMG, sexy brother’s are looking for their mate to share of course, because that’s what they do as hyenas. One woman for a group of brothers. Talking about kinkiness. All I can say is hold onto your seat for a fun fill ride of the brothers trying to win their mates heart.
There are two books in this series and they definitely leave you asking for more.  Click on the picture icon above and read the many, many reader comments.  You will see that I am not alone in picking Ms. Butler as an awesome author. ^_^
The Wiccan-Were-Bear Series
R.E. Butler's Wiccan-Were-Bear Series

R.E. Butler’s Wiccan-Were-Bear Series

I loved this series because it gives you a little bit of everything and a whole lot of hotness.  It is definitely an adult read.  You go from the world of magic to the world of the undead. How can you go wrong?  The first book of the series listed above, “A Curve of Claw”, starts off innocently with a wiccan performing a joining ceremony at a local were-bear den.  What she doesn’t expect is to be tied to a were-bear herself.  Without giving you to much of the story; this story follows Elizabeth, a very powerful independent wiccan female who doesn’t like to be told what to do.
She likes to be with whomever she want to be with, whenever she wants to be with them.
The Wolf’s Mate Series
My favorite of all, so far, was The Wolf’s Mate Series.  Ooh, I could not get enough of this series! Just look at the cover of the first book. Enough said! LOL ^_^ This series is seven fun filled, Alpha packed, claws, paws and oh my Gods! Love it! Love it! Love it!  Dying for more!
The Wolf's Mate Book 1
I am beginning to finally read my next series: The Ashland Pride Series.
I will update you on my reads regularly so keep checking in.  And please check out all of the authors that I feature in my blog.  I would and I am sure they would really appreciate it.
Happy Reading,

Susanna’s growing faster than Soph or Looch ever did, which is why your body is having more problems with her.” – “I’m not having problems with her.” I said adamantly. “I’m just going through what every pregnant woman goes through.” – “You didn’t with Lucia and Sophia.” He repeated. “But Susanna is going to grow up stronger than both her sisters combined, which is putting your body under stress.” (Small Fry Part Two)

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All I can say is, Wow… My favorite authors didn’t let me down. The new one’s have gain a new fan. Most of the books, you must be prepared for the sequel. The only thing I disliked is that, I for one like to continue reading a series in order. Having to complete the boxed set before I continue on kinds of throws me. Maybe it’s just me. 😛

The Circulate Series by K.R. Smith

Just finished Small Fry, Part 1 and I am not disappointed. I absolutely love this series and the fact that Lucia’s birthday just happens to be the same as mines, June 3rd, I feel really special. {{{smiles}}}
Looking forward to the continuation of B and Declan’s adventure. Please don’t make us wait to long.

As I have stated in my previous reviews, I am a visual reader so when reading books I tend to get drawn into them like watching a movie. I believe great sci-fi writers have to embrace that ability to grasp their readers attention and keep them at the edge of their seats, per se. That’s just my opinion. ^~^ K.R. Smith is one who I believe gets it.

Cheers to one of my favorite authors,
