Temptation Returns by Lisa Carlisle

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

Tattered-Loyalties-Cover-vFinal-72dpi-200x300

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

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.
