Disappointmentville: Las Vegas Dragons Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 454 KB | Release Date: June 24, 2013 | Publisher: Entangled Publishing : Covet | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Luck of the Dragon" [Las Vegas Dragons Series, Book 1] by Susannah Scott

Author's Book Description : Luciana de Luca has a PhD in sass and gemology—and a problem. Her twin brother’s gambling debts have gotten out of hand, and a mob enforcer is blackmailing her for access to the million dollar jewel exhibit at the lastest, greatest mega-casino on the strip. Although Lucy has worked her whole life to get away from her family’s grifter past, to save her brother, she dons three-inch Manolo Blahniks and a sluts-r-us dress and struts into Alec’s Gerald’s casino.

Alec Gerald, a shape-shifting dragon, has built the Crown Jewel casino to provide sanctuary for his people amongst the flash and awe of the Las Vegas. Alec must find his destined mate or lose his dragon form forever—unfortunately, his mate turns out to be the sexy little thief trying to rob his exhibit. With enemies in every corner, and the all-important mating ceremony looming, Alec and Lucy must learn to trust each other, before time runs out for Alec and the rest of the dragons.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. A burly dragon-shifter leader finally finds his mate, now if he can get her to stop stealing from him everything might be perfect! This series has a lot of potential with it's unique storyline about the dragons' mating and their upbringings to their current course of creating a "home base" in Las Vegas trying to "hide in plain sight."

With all that being said, I wanted to like this novel but I just was not a fan of Lucy's at all. I found her as a bad enabler for her twin brother, someone who kept trying and trying to get herself away from her past but allows her brother to reel her back in time and time again, and someone who doesn't trust easily which makes her a bit wishy washy in her actions throughout this novel. Therefore, when reading this novel I just couldn't get into liking Lucy's character, she was good in the beginning but after her actions (and her brother's too) repeatedly repeating themselves I had to force my way through it by the time I was about halfway through.

Overall, I don't recommend this book but I do have hope for this series. Good luck to those who decide to read it and I hope you'll like Lucy more then I did.

"What's so important that you pull me away from my mate?" He couldn't help the broad smile that stretched his mouth. To find one's mate, it was the work of a lifetime for a dragon.
Leo gaped at him and pushed away from the wall. "Your mate? But, she is a human, and she stole your keycard."
"Yes, I am aware of that." Alec gave a what-else-you-got shrug.
"Does she wear your dragon mark?"
"Not yet." Alec ground his teeth. ~ within Chapter 8

Made the Grade: The Wiccan-Were-Bear Series, Book 6

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 270 KB | Release Date: March 18, 2013 | Publisher: Self-Published | Obtained: Amazon.com

"A Twitch of Tail" [The Wiccan-Were-Bear Series, Book 6] by R. E. Butler

My Book Summary : Wysteria (Tera) hasn't been feeling well the past few days, when she talks to her coven about how she feels and her lusty dreams they inform her that usually means she'll be finding her mate(s) soon. And while she is helping heal a cub at the local were-tiger's ambush, she does just that .... meets her mates, were-tiger brothers, Melo and Tahlon.

Their lives would be perfect if people from Tahlon & Tera's pasts would just stay away. However, since that's not going to happen hopefully they'll be able to pull through it all ... together.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. Two brothers find their mate, now if they can only make sure their pasts don't interfere with their futures. This is a sticky sweet paranormal erotica that even though it has a slow start it pulls you in and makes you want to root for this charming trio. I did like learning about the were-tigers lives/customs.

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes paranormal erotic romances.

"A Bead of Blood" [The Wiccan-Were-Bear Series, Book 5] by by R. E. Butler

My Book Summary : Sabrina is a Vampire who is a Hunter that keeps the other vampires in line, and has been doing so for the past 80 years.

Now her world changes instantly for the better, if only she can get Griegs to make amends with his own family...

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars, two mates/beloveds find each other in very unusual circumstances and make sure they are able to stay together now matter what. I loved this sweet erotica and how quickly Sabrina and Griegs' lives come together! Plus, for not reading the previously published books in this series, I found I was able to follow along very well without any issues. I hope Sabrina and Griegs will be in or mentioned in the coming novels because I liked them so much I want to be kept updated on them! =0)

Elizabeth pressed the button to turn on the overhead lights, pulled her hair up, and tilted her head to show mating marks on both sides of her neck. I laughed and flipped my hair to show mine, and we all turned and looked at Shaylee who pointed hers under the pile of black hair.
Greigs lifted up his freshly bitten wrist. "Suck it, guys. My baby bit me back."
Everyone went quiet for a moment, and then both girls groaned lightly as the men began making demands for bite marks of their own. ~ within Chapter 8

"Claiming His Mate" [Crescent Moon Series, Book 2] by Savannah Stuart (aka Katie Reus)

My Book Summary : Six months ago, Max, a werewolf shifter and second-in-command of his pack, met his mate named Lauren, a jaguar shifter and the youngest daughter of her pride's alpha, but because of tensions between their pack & pride and because of other personal reasons he wasn't able to pursue her. That is until Lauren decides to break into Max alpha's house while the alpha is on his honeymoon so Lauren can steal back the broach that Max's pack took from her family a long time ago. However, Lauren's plan backfires, a little, when she gets into the house because Max is there to catch her. Now she's faced with the opportunity to get the broach back still if she'll agree to spend the week with him in his condo. How bad could it be...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Two supposed enemies find that they would rather fight to be together then apart if only they can get everyone else to agree. I really liked this novel, yet I was pleasantly surprised to see how much of a plot was included in it. Max and Lauren were quite a pair, the way they circled around each other like prized champions until their feelings couldn't take it anymore was fun to read about.

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes to read about unique relationships within the shifter romance world!

Fire erupted in Lauren's eyes, her inner jaguar peeking through as they transformed into straight feline, amber and glowing with anger. "I'll call whoever I want." ~ within Chapter 4

"Her Warriors’ Three Wishes" [Dante’s Circle Series, Book 2] by Carrie Ann Ryan

My Book Summary : Over a year ago Jamie, and six of her best girl friends, were struck by lightening and it changed her life forever. Jamie's friends and her found that because of the lightening they were going to change from humans into different supernatural beings once they find their "true half/halves." Jamie's problem is that she found her true half a year ago; a Warrior Angel named Ambrose, who was a coward and walked away from her not long after they met. Now a year has passed and because they have yet to bond, Jamie is dying. Once Ambrose sees her again, he knows he has to get over his cowardliness and bond with Jamie. However, before he has a chance to prove himself that he's worthy of her, an enemy of Ambrose's named Pyro, a very evil demon, kidnaps Jamie and brings her to hell to torture her and more. While in hell Jamie gets sold to the demon games and learns that Ambrose might not be the only one who is her true half, Pyro's "good" son--Balin--is also. If only Ambrose, Jamie, and Balin can find a way to bond together, break out of hell, and work out a future that they are all happy with before anything worse comes their way.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, three people find out what it means to really meet their true halves even in the direst circumstances. I liked the build up of this novel, how it showed many different realms, and how Jamie finds that not everyone is as welcoming to the girls’ new powers as her friend Lily first found. I am curious as to see what Jamie's other friends will turn into and if Nadie and Dante will end up together.

Jamie, Balin, and Ambrose are a unique couple that will be interesting to see how their lives will turn out as this series progresses. I especially enjoyed that the guys were open to the unusual changes in their lives as much as they were, definitely quicker then Jamie was.

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who enjoys paranormal romances!

"I'll explain everything."
"The place is on lockdown at night, Balin," Hunter explained, and Balin nodded. "We won't be able to get out until they open it back up."
"I know, but I can get you out when they open. I'm a demon, and they won't look twice at me bringing Jamie out." They'd just think he was taking her for some personal play, but he wasn't about to tell Jamie that.
"Me and Hunter," she corrected.
Balin cast a look toward the prized fighter who was rumored to be a good man, hence why he'd become a prisoner in hell.
"Fine, Hunter as well."
"Before we do any of this, you're going to explain to me exactly who you are and why I feel the need to wrap myself around you and never let go," Jamie said, her chin raised high.
Balin smiled and bit back a groan at the thought of her doing just that. "We're true halves, Jamie."
"And, what about Ambrose?" Her voice cracked when she said his name, and Balin wanted to curse himself.
"Why can't you have us both?" he asked, and Hunter rolled his eyes.
"Both?" she squeaked. ~ within Chapter 6
Balin looked over at Ambrose. "Do you have a plan?"
"I know of a way out of the cells if we're quick when the time comes. However, I can't get out of hell as easily. That's where you come in."
Balin shook his head. "I can't. At least not yet." Balin gave him a look full of meaning, and Ambrose held back a curse.
Of course Balin couldn't. Dante had said the demon was reaching his three hundredth year, meaning he wouldn't have the power or energy to get out of hell. The only way would be if he mated with his true half---or in his case, his triad.
Meaning they'd have to convince Jamie to form the bond in truth in the middle of hell.
Meaning he'd have to convince her to make love with two men in the middle of hell.
Yes, that seemed like an easy feat.
Much like building Rome. ~ within Chapter 7

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 241 KB | Release Date: June 8, 2013 | Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"A Mating Dance" [Ashwood Falls Series, Book 2] by Lia Davis

My Book Summary : Cameron (Cam) has been fighting her mating (or really just stretching it out) to Blaine ever since her miscarriage years ago but when Graham comes to Ashwood Falls for family visit Cam finds that her life and her original reasons for putting off their mating are changing by the moment. Now if Blaine and Graham can prove to her that this is what they want and need then everything might work out for them. Except with the Onyx Pack set out to get Ashwood Falls, and Graham's step-kids more directly, things for this soon-to-be triad have become dangerous then ever before...

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Three people find their perfect counterparts, if only they can protect each other and their growing family before it's too late. I was thoroughly intrigued by this novel and it got me very curious as to see where this series will go. I had seen the prequel and book 1 of this series on Amazon.com before but neither interested me enough to read them as this novel did, and I'm so glad I picked it up! Cam, Blaine, & Graham make a great triad that kept you on your toes while rooting for them and their makeshift family from the very beginning. Plus it didn't hurt that Max was adorable!

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes paranormal erotic suspenseful romances.

"Magick" [The Coven Series, Book 3] by Trish Milburn (aka Tricia Mills)

My Book Summary : It seems that Jaxina (Jax) is going to learn the biggest lesson of all, love can prove to be more powerful than anything ... even her darkness if only she can trust herself and those around her. With the help of her best friends, Egan & Toni, her hunter boyfriend, Keller, and their loose agreement/relationship with the Bane (a group of witches who's goal is to destroy the dark covens) Jax might just learn to become a true white witch and defeat the dark covens that plan on coming to Salem to destroy her.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars, an excellent wrap up to this enticing series!! I loved that this novel started right where the "Bane" ended, throwing you into the action from the very beginning with no slowing down. I especially liked how this novel grew on Keller and Jax's relationship and really answered the questions as to what a white witch is and can do. Reading about the new characters was fun too and I loved Jax's matchmaker skills!! *hehee*

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who loves YA paranormal thrillers with plenty of romance included!

"What is this place?" Keller asks as he stops beside me.
"Where I woke up when the poison wore off."
I don't need witch powers to sense Keller going rigid. After a breath, he walks forward and lifts one of the chains attached to the chair arm. He looks back at me with a mixture of disbelief and his handsome features stretched by a fury that would have seemed less out of place before I killed Barrow. "They chained you like an animal?"
"I am an animal, Keller. One you promised to put down if I went too far."
He drops the chain, filling the stone room with the echo of the clanging metal hitting the floor. He strides across the room and leans his palms against the wall. "Despite what happened, I'm not going to apologize for not killing you."
"You can't stand there and tell me you didn't think I was totally gone as you watched me kill a man."
He spins toward me. "I can say that," he says, with a raising voice. ~ within Chapter 4
As expected, Sarah isn't happy when we tell her the plan. "I think in the midst of all this, you all have forgotten you're not adults yet."

"And there's the little fact that Jax is stronger than all of us put together," Piper says.

"Beautiful Danger" [In the Company of Vampires Series, Book 1] by Michele Hauf

Author's Book Description : Could Her Sworn Enemy Lead Her Out of Darkness?

As a member of an ancient order of vampire hunters, Lark has found that eliminating dangerous vampires is about more than duty. It's personal—a kill for every day her husband was held captive before his death. Staking her prey isn't a challenge until she confronts Domingos LaRoque. Mad with vengeance and the blood of a powerful phoenix, Domingos tests her skills...and seduces her soul.

Once a talented musician, Domingos can't escape the constant music in his head...or his need to destroy the werewolf pack that tortured him. Though trusting the hunter ordered to kill him can be his gravest mistake, the dark desires between them can't be refused. Yet as he and Lark become allies to defeat a mutual threat, loving the enemy may be the ultimate sacrifice.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, this thrilling romance about a "psycho" vampire falling in love with his enemy and a trained vampire hunter finding out that not every vampire is "cut from the same cloth" is one where you never know what will happen next. I enjoyed this novel more then I expected. Yet I still wish there was more to it's ending then what was offered, I think it could of been just so much more.

Either way, I recommend this novel to anyone who likes paranormal romances with unusual twists.

"Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid" [Sons of Kane Series, Book 1] by Tiffany Allee

My Book Summary : Alice has had a crush on her neighbor, Noah, for years and now after a few drinks of liquid courage she plans to ask him to assist her into being her "pretend boyfriend" during her younger sister's week-long-cruise-wedding.

Noah never expected his sexy neighbor to stop by with that kind of requested. He's very tempted to turn her down. Only because he's a vampire and it really wouldn't be the best place for him to be, especially if he has to be in the sun some of the times and surrounded by humans (mostly the delectable Alice) in close proximity 24/7. However, he's in need of getting out of town and this is the perfect excuse .... if only they can keep their emotional distance from each other they might still want to go back to their usual lives once the wedding cruise is all over, but that's a BIG IF!

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, this sweet paranormal romance will sweep you off your feet. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Alice and Noah's (a little unusual) world-win romance. They are perfect for each other because they balance each other out. Plus, it made me very intrigued as to where/how this series was going to go because of the mention of "Noah's brothers" and of the situation that happened with Alice's brother, it definitely sounds interesting. I can't wait to find out what will happen next!

The only thing that would have made this novel better would be if the big climax about Noah's "marriage issues" had a little more involved to it, so it wasn't just a "oh you choose her instead, okay" kind of deal. =0/

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes sexy/sweet erotic paranormal romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
Rage fired from his gut at the idea of anyone—even himself—using Alice for a week of fun, only to say goodbye to her. She wasn’t the type, and he held his fists at his sides to avoid showing Charles how he felt about the suggestion.
“She lives next door. If I slept with her, she’d assume that would give her the right to drop in whenever.” He forced the words out, hoping Charles would believe that’s what worried him.
Charles didn’t look convinced, but he tilted his head in a quick nod. “True. You’re right. Best to keep things friendly. But it’s also best you go on this cruise.”
“Fine. But if I come back here to a wedding, I’m going to be pissed.” ~ within Chapter 1
As if nothing had happened, Noah started the dance again, but his body moved so closely against hers that she could feel him. So tempting. So powerful.
The air left the room, and it was as if they were alone with the thundering beat and Spanish words singing around them. There was nothing but him. His scent draped around her, filling her lungs with spice and a touch of sweat. He smelled like a man should smell. His hand slid down to caress the small of her back. His body directed her every movement.
Heat slid through her and settled at her core. God, she wanted him. Wanted him to slip off her dress, and slide those strong hands down her body. Touch her and make her call out his name. She could feel it. He’d be as commanding in bed. Showing her what he wanted with his body. Reading hers just as easily.
Crap. The music had stopped. When had it stopped? ~ within Chapter 6
