Spreading the Word: Seven Brides for Seven Shifters Series, Book 1

"There's Something About Werewolves" [Seven Brides for Seven Shifters Series, Book 1] by Thalia Eames

Authors' Book Description : Their second chance ignites with a bite.

Lennox Averdeen’s top three worst fears:

1. Anything remotely canine.

2. Finding out she has a secret baby.

3. Running into Garrett Anderson. Former best friend. Heartbreaker.

She pulls a trifecta when she realizes the stray canine and the tween kid hanging around her house are not only one and the same, he’s Garrett’s wolf shifter son.

When Garrett tracks down his runaway son and sees Lennox again, the widowed father’s heart begins to struggle against his self-imposed chains. Plus, just coming into town pits him against the local Alpha, and everything he hates about pack life. The death, the heartache.

Despite her fears, Lennox becomes the boy’s mother in all but DNA. But Garrett? He can hula-hoop with the nine rings of hell. Except the heat of attraction has never died, and there’s only one way to slake their sexual thirst. Make a smoking-hot deal, agree to part as friends…and try to ignore the sound of Fate howling with laughter.

Warning: This book will stop your heart with barks of laughter, breathless drama, dueling heroes, and sizzling sex. Hey, if you can’t beat ’em, howl with ’em.

My Book Review : DNF. Maybe my expectations for this novel were too high. I’m not exactly sure where it went wrong but I by 45% of the way through I had to stop reading it, as I couldn’t put up with it anymore.

While I believe that Garrett and Lennox’s connection is undeniable and I feel like they might be mates, I’m not sure if such a thing as “true mates” are a part of this series, as the mate topic was never discussed within the parts that I read. However, how Garrett could fall in love and marry someone other than Lennox (as they were as thick as thieves at that time) if they were mates baffles me. Though Garrett says he loves his wife (who has now passed away) and believes she was his mate, enough to feel he should never marry again. Basically, I think he's a bit of an idiot not to realize who Lennox is to him. At times Lennox and Garrett’s struggle over their feelings seemed never ending, which was what annoyed me the most.

However, her Grandmother’s antics didn’t help either. I mean the thing about the money, COME ON! That just made me upset and forced me to realize the ridiculousness of situation Lennox got herself into.

Overall, I found it humorous and thought it has potential but I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. I did like the idea of Lennox & Garrett together and Garrett’s son Nox. I hope if you try to read it, you’ll enjoy it more then I did.

"If you wanted to stay here, you should've told me, Grandma."
Gran pursed her lips. "Don't say grandma like it's a curse word. You're the one acting crazy and erratic." She punctuated each word with a stab of her umbrella.
"Losing all your money, getting a concussion, and having to deal with..." Lennox gestured at Garrett and gasped, "...with that would make anyone crazy."
"I'm not a that," Garrett intoned. ~ within Chapter 9

Idolizing In: Corrigan Falls Raiders Series, Book 1

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 1108 KB | Expected Release Date: May 19, 2015 | Publisher: Entangled Publishing : Teen : Crush | Obtained: NetGalley

"Center Ice" [Corrigan Falls Raiders Series, Book 1] by Cate Cameron

Authors' Book Description : This Entangled Teen Crush book contains adult language, underage drinking, sexual situations, and crazy squirrels. It may cause you to become a fan of hockey—or at least hot hockey players.

The hometown hockey hero won’t know what hit him…

Karen Webber is in small-town hell. After her mother’s death, she moved to Corrigan Falls to live with strangers—her dad and his perfect, shiny new family—and there doesn’t seem to be room for a city girl with a chip on her shoulder. The only person who makes her feel like a real human being is Tyler MacDonald.

But Karen isn’t interested in starting something with a player. And that’s all she keeps hearing about Tyler.

Corrigan Falls is a hockey town, and Tyler’s the star player. But the viselike pressure from his father and his agent are sending him dangerously close to the edge. All people see is hockey—except Karen. Now they’ve managed to find something in each other that they both desperately need. And for the first time, Tyler is playing for keeps…

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! This novel reels you in with crazy squirrels than hooks you with a romance that is intensely sweet. When Tyler and Karen meet, their lives are stacked against them. As their relationship grows, they decide what they really want for themselves and what they are willing to do to help accomplish their goals.

I was riveted by this dramatic YA novel. Karen’s life is in turmoil; she just lost her mother in a car accident and is now living with her father’s “perfect” family. Never meeting her father prior to the accident, she doesn’t know how to cope other than with her daily running. While running she meets Tyler and they quickly go from “friends” into a relationship that seems to help them both. Yet, Tyler’s life isn’t much better than Karen’s is. He’s a hockey player with a good chance to make it into the NHL after this final year, but with a father and agent demanding everything and more from him, the pressure is getting to be too much to handle. Both (with the help of Karen’s “new” family) find that being together makes them stronger and better to equipped to handle whatever/whoever comes their way.

I loved Tyler and Karen’s banter. They were a playful fun couple that were fun to read! I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for an intense YA contemporary romance!

Book Teaser(s) :
"The kids don't have allergies, so it wouldn't be in theirs."
"Of course no allergies," I agreed. That would be a flaw, and imperfections were not allowed in this household. I was tempted to find a way to expose them to angry squirrels just to test the theory, but it seemed like a pretty complicated plan would be required.
I followed Will out to the bottom of the staircase and waited for him there. I'd never been upstairs in this house. I mean, I'd only lived there for about a week, so it wasn't a huge deal. My bedroom and a small bathroom were in the basement, food and the doors to outside were on the main floor...that was all I needed. And absolutely all I wanted. These people were strangers, and there was no need for me to see their bedrooms. Not unless I was putting squirrels between their sheets. ~ within Chapter 1 - titled 'Karen'
