Feasted On: Dante’s Circle Series, Book 4

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 1901 KB | Release Date: April 12, 2014 | Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing | Obtained: Amazon.com

"Tangled Innocence" [Dante’s Circle Series, Book 4] by Carrie Ann Ryan

Author's Book Description : 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.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Hit the ground running in this entertaining, thrilling, and heart-wrenching novel! In addition, to being a great addition to it's series this novel was one that I could not get enough of and did want to have end. Nevertheless, the series must continue so I guess that's okay. =0)

This trio, Nadie with her men, is a great match up from the very beginning. I especially liked how each of them handled each new "twist" that was thrown their way, as it seemed that even when one started to freak out the others were able to set them straight quickly, usually romantically, and move on to the next thing that came at them. It all made the flow of this novel work really well, which is one of the reasons I could not get enough of it!!

About the Main Characters:
• Nadie: Not as innocent as she appears to be. A virgin who doesn't want to be one anymore. Sick of Dante ignoring her. Ready to throw in the towel on the whole "mate thing" until Jace comes into her life. Will do anything and everything to protect her mates.

• Dante: One fierce dragon. Doesn't like conformity. Hates his family. Very old. Loves his bar, his mates, Jace's family, and his friends.

• Jace: A grizzly bear shifter who acts like a "teddy bear" when it comes to Nadie. A Mediator -- someone who goes to different realms to help solve any complications. Has known Dante for the past 80 years and has been actively searching for their third pairing (Nadie) throughout those years. Has a great family.

Together they prove just how inseparable they actually are and what they are willing to do to be sure they can stay together forever!

The only reason I didn't give this the full 5 stars that I wanted to, is because of the person who died. I know we only just met him (or at least I did since the only other book I've read in this series was book 2 and he wasn't in that one) yet as soon as we did I was hoping he'd be a mate with one of the other girls in the group. In the short time, you read about him in this novel you cannot help but like him, which is why I cried when he was killed. =0(

Overall, I highly recommend this novel and series to anyone who is a fan of Ms. Ryan and/or those who enjoy paranormal romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
She’d gone to sleep soon after Jace had left the night before, dreaming of dragons and bears and frolicking down a yellow brick road. Apparently her subconscious was a little illogical. ~ within Chapter 4
That was another thing she and her dragon would have to discuss.
He couldn’t keep treating her like fragile glass when it came to big decisions. Leaving her asleep while he went off to a group of paranormals that could hurt him classified as one of those things that he needed to at least mention to her.
Not just tell his messenger.
Apparently she was still a little peeved at that.
“Nadie, honey, I don’t know.” She winced at his honesty but didn’t interrupt him. “I have no idea what the Conclave wanted with him, and, fuck, I was so scared when Dante told me where he was going. I’m one huge-ass grizzly, and I wanted to cower under the table and hide the two of you away forever.”
She blinked at him. He needed to work on his whole don’t-freak-out-Nadie thing. ~ within Chapter 8
When had his life turned into a soap opera?
He used to be the nomadic hermit dragon with friends from other realms and no worries other than keeping others at bay. Now he had a potential war, two mates who he loved and didn’t want to leave, and now...this.
Dragon shit.
“Ready?” Jace asked from his side, his hand resting on the small of Dante’s back.
Dante relaxed for a moment, leaning into the other man. He closed his eyes, needing to regroup before they left. It wouldn’t do anyone any good for him to be a stressed-out basket case. He’d either end up throwing his mates in his hoard and hiding them from the outside or start growling and spitting fire at random dragons that dared enter his line of sight. ~ within Chapter 14

"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

Feasted On: Ashwood Falls Series, Book 2

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.

Graham sat down on the island, and Blaine set his coffee in front of him. "Thanks."

Made the Grade: Dragon Falls Series, Book 1 & Dragon Septs Series, Book 11

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Paperback - Pages: 330; Kindle Edition - File Size: 2347 KB; Audible – Unabridged | Expected Release Date: July 28, 2015 | Publisher: Grand Central Publishing : Forever | Obtained: NetGalley

"Dragon Fall" [Dragon Falls Series, Book 1] & [Dragon Septs Series, Book 11] by Katie MacAlister (aka Katie Maxwell)

Author's Book Description : The first book in New York Times bestselling author Katie MacAlister’s sexy, steamy Dragon Falls series.

YOU FLIRT WITH FIRE…

For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she’s seen some extraordinary things. It’s too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that’s both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon’s fire burns.

WHEN YOU DATE A DRAGON

Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul…

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, two years ago Aoife witnessed her date (the same one who had just "given" her a "magical ring") get slayed and than reincarnated ... which in turn sent her into an insane asylum. Now officially out as being "cured," she goes back to the fair where her life changed just too ultimately get thrown back into the "magical" world again. While knowing that she was never insane in the first place is great, dealing with talking demon dog, a brooding dragon shifter, and ending a dragon war might be more than she's able to handle...

Though it wasn't quite what I expected, I found this standalone series romance novel to be one hilarious dramedy that seemed never-ending. Constant action from one moment to the next with only one slow moment at the beginning. It was a very enticing read.

Ultimately, Jim made this novel. Yet Aoife's sass, pizzazz, unvulgar commentary, and how she charmed Kostya is what entertained me the most. Aoife and Kostya are one fated pair that seemed to be resistant of the match in the beginning. But it was because of their resistance that made you want to root for their relationship even more, especially since fate is never wrong. 😆 😂

I recommend this novel to those who are fans of Ms. MacAlister, fans of the Aisling Grey Series, and/or those looking for a unique paranormal shifter romance.

Book Teaser(s) :
"I don't know whether to be more disturbed by the fact that you think a dog can talk or that you can stand there, stark naked, without so much as a stapler as a weapon, and hold me prisoner." I adopted a quite reasonable, conversational tone, the sort intended to calm deranged people and keep them from committing acts of violence. I tried very hard not to notice just how nice the naked Kostya felt against me, the unyielding planes of his body being softened by my curves. It was a wonderful demonstration of how men and women fit together, but now was not the time to dwell on that subject.
His eyes were black, I noticed as he scowled down at me. Not dark brown but black, as black as his pupils, but a shiny black, one that glittered with little specks of silver. Unfortunately, at that moment, the glitter took the form of ire. "What the hell are you talking about?" he demanded to know. "What stapler?"
"There's no stapler," I said, finding myself suddenly blighted with several conflicting desires, ranging from the urge to grab his head and kiss him to laughing at the crazy situation, stomping on his toes, kneeing him in the naked noogies, and running away.
He looked even more irritated. ~ within Chapter 5
"For a man who doesn't want me, you sure end up kissing me a lot," I snapped, casting yet another glance at my feet before looking around the room. There was no fire to be seen, and only the faintest black smudge on the floor were the little pools of flames had been. "But I'm going to let your overbearing arrogance---"
"I am not arrogant."
"---and self-centered egotism---"
"I am a wyvern! The welfare of my sept falls on my shoulders."
"---go, because this fire thing just freaks the bejebus out of me. Wait a minute---dragon fire? That's a thing? A real thing?"
"Dragons control their fire, yes," he said, looking impatient.
"I object to that," I said, pointing at his face. "You can't give me that impatient, 'How did you not know that dragons have fire, let alone control it' look when that's so out of the bounds of normalcy that it never even struck me as possible. Well, to be true, the same can be said about dragons, but still! You didn't tell me that the whole fire-breathing dragon thing was real."
"You are an odd woman," he said thoughtfully.
"Odd good, or odd bad?" ~ within Chapter 6
"What's that mean?" I heard myself ask, even though I was blind and bemused.
The hard thing I hit shifted beneath me and groaned. "You don't speak Latin?"
I waited a minute until the wavy blackness that seemed to swim around me faded, and I could see. I rolled off Kostya and glared at him as best I could. "I'm a half-Senegalese, half-Irish woman who was born in America and raised in Sweden. Do you think I speak Latin?"
"I see no obstacle to you knowing it." ~ within Chapter 17
