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.

Review of Cat 🐱 Haus by Cat Johnson

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_81Ejnvsfq5L__SL160_I loved this story. John and Cate must remove the wall around their hearts in order to let love in. Both feel, for Cate her profession and for John reasons unknown; they do not deserve love. When emotions become high and jealousy becomes a huge factor; a decision must be made. Thankfully, at the advise of one of Cate’s clients, a decision was made. I loved, what I want to call the partial ending. Please be a book four to let us know John’s reasoning and how the true happy ever after “Pretty Woman” ending could be.

Coming soon from Heather Long

Wolf Law

Wolf Law

Coming November 28th!

Long before Mason left Willow Bend, Ryan met his mate and brought her home…this is the prequel to the Wolves of Willow Bend and the story of Ryan and Tiffany.

Ryan Huston serves the pack in all their public financial dealings. Connected politically and personally, he possesses a unique ability to segue into and out of human life. He’s never been afraid to use his animal’s dominance to his advantage and, though he and Toman—the Alpha of Willow Bend—are often at odds, his loyalty to the pack has never truly been tested. Not until he meets Tiffany.

Tiffany Anderson grew up hard in a world defined by its uncertainties. Meeting Giles Taglioni seemed like a happy accident turned fairy tale. Five years into the abusive marriage, Tiffany wants out. Tiffany knows Taglioni will never let go of his daughter—he’d kill her before he lets her take Alexis away from him. A desperate woman with no options until a chance encounter changes everything.

Ryan is like no one Tiffany’s ever met, but she doesn’t dare believe him when he offers to help her. Long ago made familiar with the monsters in the dark, she doesn’t dream of princes on white horses sweeping her away. She also never imagined a big, bad wolf was exactly what she needed.

Redwood Pack Book 7.7

Digitally: Amazon US │Amazon UK │Barnes & Noble │ ARe │ Kobo │ iBooks │ Google Play

Emeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived. Using her knowledge and research, she helped save the Redwood Pack from devastation. However, she’s never felt whole. Not since she lost her mate so long ago. Now there is a new, younger wolf, entering her life and it will take more than her nose in a book to figure out the warmth in her heart is much more than a promise of a new feeling. It’s fate.

Noah has known Emeline was his mate since he first saw her, only he doesn’t know if she feels the same. He’s always been on the fringes of those in power in the Pack and has enjoyed it. Now he’s become an integral piece and wants to find a way to bring Emeline with him. Her reluctance in dating a much younger wolf isn’t the only hurdle in his way.

When he finally takes the step, he’ll have to pray she finds the connection and lets fate save them both. As they find their way to a mating bond, a player from the past is out to hold them back and everything they thought they’d had might be lost forever.

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.

Carrie Ann Ryan’s “Tangled Innocence”

 

Dante’s Circle Book 4

 

Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

 

As one of the seven lightning struck women, Nadie Morgan has known for a while now that her fate would be forever changed…and revolve around a certain dragon. From the first time Dante Bell saw Nadie, he knew she was the one for him. There’s just one problem–there’s another in his life he’s waiting on as well.

 

When Jace Goodwin, a bear shifter and Mediator, finally comes back to the human realm after years away under circumstances out of his control, his first stop is to Dante’s Circle where he not only finds his dragon, but the woman they both have been waiting for.

 

Once secrets are told and the sparks fly, Nadie’s new life becomes something she never thought possible. However there’s another realm at play and Jace and Nadie’s dragon will have to fight harder than he’s ever fought before to keep the life he’s waited eons for.

 

Warning: Contains one not-so-innocent human, a bear known for his bear-hugs, a tattooed and pierced dragon with a fiery temper, and a connection so explosive, you’ll be fanning yourself from page one.

Review:

Well it was definitely worth the wait! Carrie Ann Ryan hit it out of the park again! I’ve waited for the story of Dante and Nadie for so long. There was so much pent up energy as their story line drew near. The stares between the two, back and forth at the bar during the girls night out sequences. And to add another mate to the mix?! Wow, Carrie Ann, what sugar you drinking on to inspire your characters? I want some of that! LOL But Seriously, she never let’s me down with her novel’s and that’s why she is a best seller.

This story had it all and I think the best fight sequences out of all the Dante’s Circle Series. The fact that even after a very long wait to be able to mate with Nadie and Jace, the possibility of deterring it longer would make any man/dragon go off the deep end. Nadie unable to wait any long for Dante to make the first move, chose to make  a decision that could cost them the possibility of a relationship in the long run. And let’s not forget the missing link that Nadie is not even made aware of, Jace. He was finishing up his duties as a Mediator of the Realms that took sometimes years to complete.

Okay Carrie Ann Ryan, on to the next.  Looking forward to the next installment of Dante’s Circle. 🙂
