Disappointmentville: Her Stepbrothers are Werewolves by Trinity Blacio | #BookReview @trinityblacio

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 326 KB | Expected Release Date: September 1, 2016 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers are Werewolves" [Stepbrothers Series, Book 7] by Trinity Blacio

Author's Book Description : Lucy Ballard’s life sucked. First her father was killed in a boating accident, then some nut job she thought would be her husband, took something from her that left a hole in her heart the size of a watermelon. She was convinced that no man would want her now –she wasn’t whole. The one thing she had dreamed of all her life–to have a big family–was now physically impossible.

Duke and Nolan Masters were brothers, even though Duke was now the alpha of their pack. They shared everything else, including women. So it was no surprise that their mate would be one and the same, but they never imagined it would to be their new stepsister, Lucy Ballard. Not to mention the fact that she can’t’ have children, and the reaction of the pack to this would bring serious trouble.

Could the three of them come together? Would the pack accept her as their new alpha bitch even though she was damaged? Duke and Nolan were about to make sure of it, because otherwise there would be only one choice–to step down as alpha and move away from everything they knew.

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars. Lucy's life wasn't easy yet she thought she had it well and truly planned out. That is until her mother arrives with a new husband, which is a werewolf, and learns that her new stepbrothers are her mates. Everything in her life gets turned upside down, but as long as her dream life still comes true .... that's all that matters .... right?

I think I had too high of hopes for this novel, since even though it had all of Ms. Blacio's usual novel selling points this novel didn't hook me as I'd have liked it too. Everything was just okay. Then I found there were quite a few storylines that were never completed so you’re left hanging a bit.

I only recommend this novel to those who are fans of Ms. Blacio and hope you'll enjoy it more than I did.

Made the Grade: Hot For Xmas by Trinity Blacio

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 320 KB | Release Date: November 30, 2016 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: Amazon

"Hot For Xmas" by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Emily Garland always feared she’d end up a cat lady, but she’d have dogs instead. Her sex life—what sex life? Any time she had hopes for seducing a man, he’d disappear. Emily was giving Santa one last opportunity to bring her a mate, but if something didn’t happen by Christmas, she was giving up.

Ever since his parents were murdered on Christmas Eve, Baas Sather has hated the holiday, so he never celebrated it. Now, at 50 and in his prime as a werewolf, he and four other pack leaders need to find a mate. But not one female in their group or the bordering ones carries the special scent. Baas had never considered anyone that wasn’t were as a possible mate. Alphas were known for their aggressive behavior and their strong sexual needs were too much for one human female, at least that’s what he’d always believed. Then a week before Xmas, everything changed when she walked into their lives.

One careless, and if he had anything to say about it, soon-to-be-dead wolf had beaten and starved his mate and cubs. It fell to Baas and his brothers to take care of anyone who got out of hand within their pack. However, when Emily Garland, a local social worker, showed up, he’s unprepared for her smart aleck mouth. Now all he can think about is how to convince her that she was made for him and his pack leaders… and how they were going to protect her from a psychotic stalker.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! For most of Emily's life, she has been on the run trying to escape her past and the cult that was after her. Yet, by chance, she learns that she is the National Alphas' mate, so she now has four men wanting to protect her at all costs. Although when her past, and the cult, finally catch up to her will she be able to put an end to all of her misery and move on with her men or will fate have something more in-store for her instead?

This novel wasn’t what I was expecting, as it surprised me more than once, yet I enjoyed unique situations that this novel throws at Emily. In addition, Emily is a strong presence and character all by herself as she seemingly takes on everything that comes her way while protecting those around her. Add in her growing relationship with Baas, Abe, Sam, and Zack, the reader gets thrown into a world of mystery and intrigue while discovering the passion these four men have for their new mate. I found this suspenseful paranormal romance surprisingly clever in how it is portrayed and very well written.

I recommend it to those who are fans of Ms. Blacio and/or looking for an intriguing paranormal ménage romance.

Made the Grade: Her Stepbrothers Are Dragons by Trinity Blacio

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 321 KB | Expected Release Date: December 23, 2015 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers Are Dragons" [Stepbrothers Series, Book 1] by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Holly Brewner knew she had a problem with Christmas Eve, but she thought her way of celebrating was better anyway. Twelve days of gifts and on Christmas Day, the big one. Her father and she had celebrated every year like this, but this year was going to be different.

This year she had a new stepmom and two stepbrothers, who happened to be dragons, and that changed all her plans.

Upon their arrival, her house burned down, she was shot at, and now she was staying in a cave for two days as if that were normal. On top of that, her two stepbrothers, Darius and Malcolm Longfellow, were claiming they were her mates and that they were going to marry her on Christmas Eve.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, Christmas is Holly’s favorite time of year but she just learned her family has gotten a little bit fuller after she reads her father’s letter informing her of his sudden marriage and her new stepbrothers. However, she’s not going to let that throw her off, even after she learns that her latest advertising clients are her stepbrothers and they are in town to find out more about her. Therefore, she finds a way to retaliate Christmas-style. Only it all seems to backfire on her once she realizes they are dragon-shifters and she is actually their mate. Will she be able to handle all the upcoming life changes coming her way or will it all be too much?

I have read most of Ms. Blacio’s Stepbrothers Series and I have to say this one surprised me with its setup. Loaded with the Christmas-y spirit (surprising after Holly’s past comes out) and a new play on the “12 Days of Christmas” revenge style, I found this novel very entertaining and enjoyed learning about Holly, Darius, and Malcolm. Nevertheless, I found their relationship a bit forced and the beginning on the slower paced side, which made it hard for me to get into it, as I would have liked. Even so, it was Holly’s feistiness and how her men win her over that hooked me into this novel.

I recommend it to those looking for a paranormal romance that has a little erotic fun included that will get you into the holiday spirit too!

"Looks like five little balls." Malcolm groaned. "I'm with you, we should beat her butt." They stared at the sixth box as if it had grown a head. ~ within Chapter 1

Disappointmentville: Her Stepbrothers Are Angels by Trinity Blacio

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 249 KB | Expected Release Date: February 13, 2016 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers Are Angels" [Stepbrothers Series, Book 6] by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Dixie Squire is half demon on her mother’s side and has an embarrassing gift that she can’t reveal to her father. Who wants to tell their daddy that she needs to have sex every week in order to survive? Talk about a complex.

But that isn’t’ the worst part. It seems her father has just taken an angel for a mate—not just any angel, but one that used to hunt down and destroy demons, right alongside with her two very hot new stepbrothers.

Eae and Leo only wanted their mother to be happy, but they never dreamed they’d be tracking down their wayward stepsister. But when they stepped into Dixie’s old apartment, Eae and Leo realized they were not only tracking their stepsister, but their woman, and that they weren’t the only ones after her.

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. Dixie is a half-human sex demon who is on the run with her best friend because her father recently married an angel. As angels are typically her enemies, so she is running scared. What she doesn't know is that her new "relatives" don't want to hurt her at all and it'll take her stepbrother mates to prove it to her...

This novel was not as good as I'd hoped. Nevertheless, this fast-paced erotic paranormal romance was quite entertaining in its own way. That is why I still recommend it to those who are fans of Ms. Blacio and/or looking for a quick paranormal Valentine's Day read!

Dixie glanced behind her, and sure enough, there was Lilly holding a shoe.
"But we are going to have to teach her how to use knives," Dixie mumbled. "Lilly, go put the damn shoe back in the locker. I'm fine." ~ within Chapter 3

Feasted On: Her Stepbrothers Are Demons by Trinity Blacio

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 301 KB | Expected Release Date: September 24, 2015 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers Are Demons" by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Alex Cander had her life all planned out – mom married off, check. Police academy graduation (all done in secret) – double check. Assigned to one of the biggest cases in her county – triple check.

Yet Alex knew this smooth ride couldn’t last long.

Sure enough all hell breaks loose, literally, when her stepfather asks her to help his sons get acquainted to their surroundings. Not only were her supposed stepbrothers claiming her as theirs, but it turns out they are demons. On top of this, she learns that her own grandparents weren’t even human?

And that’s no even the half of it!

A being called Darkness has stepped forward claiming her as well. Now she is mated to three demons that not only control her every movement, but also her heart…someone pinch her please.

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Alexandra (Alex) is used to being the one to look out for her family and friends. But suddenly after her mother remarries, Alex finds her new stepbrothers taking over her life and her hard-earned independence. When their secret comes out and she also learns that another plans to claim her too, will she be able to take it all in stride or will everything finally fall apart?

I LOVED how this "Her Stepbrothers Are..." from Ms. Blacio had such a cohesive beginning, middle, and ending!! It was all endearing, suspenseful, and seductive that I didn't want it to end, while also appreciating how it all was wrapped up! This is definitely my favorite novel from this world thus far!

When it came to Alex and her men, I liked how their stories all intertwine and how their relationship built on itself even though it was rushed. Alex is a strong-willed woman with a soft heart, which makes her the perfect counterpart to Zain (Darkness), Darren, & Tork's restless "demonic" ways. All of the men were great in their own ways. I love reading about charming possessive men, and these three had that in spades! I just wish I could have read from Tork's POV like we could from the other three main characters. *shrug*

I DO recommend this novel to those looking for a fast-paced erotic paranormal (slightly sci-fi) romance!

"No, and wipe off that grin. I can't help it if the two of you have my body doing the hormonal jig," she grumbled and squirmed as they both stared down at her. ~ within Chapter 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 287 KB | Expected Release Date: July 28, 2015 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers Are Aliens" by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Lea Clark was so happy when her Mom finally found the man of her dreams. She thought that not having to worry about her mom any more would take a load off of her shoulders, but she got so much more than she ever imagined when she married into this family!

Not only had her mother married an alien from another planet, but her stepfather was from a family of warriors to boot.

Did she mention that her stepfather had, not one, but two hot sexy warrior sons? And that her so-called stepbrothers claimed she was their mate as well?

Talk about keeping it in the family!

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. Lea's mother recently married her forth husband, but even she can see that this matchup is ideal since he seems to treasure her mom with all her quirks. The only oddity is .... her new stepfather is an alien. Yet even though Lea has dealt with the surprise of it all very comely, it's the new shock of her "stepbrothers" announcing she is their mate that throws her for a loop, especially with all the sudden changes that being their mate entails.

Intense and dynamic, with this novella plan to expect the unexpected! While I liked the characters very much I had a hard time keeping up with its plot. Because of its novella length it felt like the plot’s information was rushed at times and it was building up to a book series that I’m not sure will ever surface. With that being said, I liked how we got to read from all the main characters POVs (Lea, Gunner, & Rogue). In addition, I enjoyed how their mating played out.

I recommend this novella to those who are fans of Ms. Blacio and/or those looking for dynamic sci-fi erotic romance.

She frowned but nodded, placing her hand into his. He turned it over and traced a small rectangle shaped mark on her wrist.
"Well damn! When did that happen?" she said, glancing at he wrist.
"Most likely on Friday. Your mark is in a place I don't believe you would want to see right now?" Gunner glanced down to his crotch. ~ within Chapter 2

Made the Grade: Her Stepbrothers’ Demands by Trinity Blacio

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 260 KB | Expected Release Date: June 30, 2015 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Her Stepbrothers’ Demands" by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Her Stepbrothers’ Demands by Trinity Blacio – Romance>Multiple Partners

When her mother agrees to be transformed into a werewolf to join her mate, Jasmine feels abandoned and alone, and does the only thing she can do; she tries to leave.

The fact that the man she had considered her real father’ isn’t human, but an actual werewolf, just proved that there were other beings, not human, in this world. It made her remember that her real father (who had abused her as a child), had given her to the Nightmare Man that one night (a secret she had kept hidden from all, until now).

But now that she learns that in addition to having a werewolf for a mother, she has two were-cowboy stepbrothers (who are too hot to handle), it’s almost too much to take. They were the dark cowboys of her dreams as a teenager..... Can she give in to her were-cowboy stepbrothers’ demands?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, Jasmine's (Princess) life changes dramatically when she learns that her longtime stepfather is actually a werewolf, her mother is turned into one too, and that fate has made her the mate of the stepbrothers she just recently met. With her own past coming back to hurt her, and her new pack/family, she is more scared than ever that everything will fall apart. However, her new mates plan to protect her at all costs, even from herself and her reckless choices if necessary...

This fast-paced paranormal erotica romance is one that hooks you with Jasmine's feistiness and then keeps you entertained with the possessive males who plan to claim her. I found R. D. and Logan to be hot and intense yet sweet in the way they try to take care of Jasmine. Together this triad was one that captivated me in the way they go about joining and dealing with threats against them. Their connection was fun to watch, especially how Jasmine tried to fight it most of the way. This is one triad that I wouldn't mind reading more about as there is plenty of secondary plots left as cliffhangers.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a thrilling fast-paced paranormal romance.

-- On a side note --
I wish their was a bit to read from Logan's POV since we got to read from the other two's POVs. In addition, at times it was hard to follow when the names were messed up here and there.

Made the Grade: The Hot Streak: A Baseball Romance by Cecilia Tan

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Paperback - Pages: 157; Kindle Edition - File Size: 1518 KB | Expected Release Date: June 18, 2014 | Publisher: Riverdale Avenue Books : Desire | Obtained: NetGalley

"The Hot Streak: A Baseball Romance" by Cecilia Tan

Author's Book Description : “"The Hot Streak" is an interesting take on loving someone who is in the limelight. I enjoyed the book and found it to be an entertaining read.”—Coffee Time Romance

Casey hits it big when she meets major league baseball player Tyler Hammond at a photo shoot and they start up a steamy romance. Traveling with Tyler, she’s living it up and enjoying all the hot sex she can get between games. Now Tyler’s on a winning streak, and he thinks it’s thanks to Casey—but she has to decide for herself: is this the real deal, or just a summer fling?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! Casey meets Tyler (a hot shot baseball player) through her job and gets thrown into a whirlwind romance, but when Tyler's winning streak keeps getting hotter is the affection she see from him because of her "helping his wins" or is it true love?

This hot novel keeps you on your toes with its spicy scenes and drama. Yet what I loved most about it was Tyler with his happy-go-lucky look on life and infectious personality! Tyler's so optimistic that he balances out Casey's pessimistic ways and together they just seem like a great team. However, I really enjoyed how both Casey & Tyler deal with the major conflict that comes between them, as it helped me like them both even more.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a fun contemporary romance and doesn't mind a bit of erotica added in too.

"Look, they'd happily spend fifty grand without blinking on a team psychologist, right? If flying you in and paying you to quit your job keeps Tyler from self-destructing, it's a bargain."
"I didn't actually quit the job. You think the team is going to want me to go to all his starts?"
"Unless he loses tonight, in which case, well, The Streak's broken." Missy shrugged.
Casey was surprised to find she didn't want that to happen. She still wanted to kill Tyler Hammond, but she didn't want him to lose. He's crazy, baseball's crazy, and I'm crazy, too, she thought. ~ within Chapter 9

"The Virgin Witch and The Vampire King: Weddings Bells Times Four" [The Virgin Witch and The Vampire King Series, Book 1] by Trinity Blacio (aka Maria MoonStar)

Author's Book Description : Best-selling paranormal romance author Trinity Blacio brings her characters from the beloved short story, "The Virgin Witch and The Vampire King" back in this riveting page-turner that culminates in not one, but four, supernatural Christmas marriages.

The ancient scrolls decreed that she was made for the Vampire King. But they failed to mentioned that she would also be mated to two werewolf brothers and a prehistoric vampire.

When the four of them join forces to protect her, love her, and drive her crazy, Beth knows she’s in trouble. Not to mention the fact that war is breaking out all around them and Beth has to plan for her wedding to not one man, but four.

Edward had always been a patient man, but after two kidnappings, a shooting and being cursed, he was ready to rip someone apart. However, he wasn’t the only one.

Dred and Rock Nester, werewolf twin brothers, were hired to guard the King’s woman. The only problem was she was also their mate as was the Vampire King himself.

Lucas, one of the original vampires, and mate to Beth Roman wakes up to a new world and a human witch standing before him. A war is brewing around them, but his only concern is her safety. Nothing or no one would harm their woman even if all of then have to coexist with the other men.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! You'll hit the ground running when you start this suspenseful paranormal/sci-fi (put them together and you get para-sci ... okay that sounds bad) romance!! =0) It's entertaining in the extreme with the sexual prowess of Beth's four alpha males, the comedy that gets randomly thrown into unexpected scenes, and the mystery behind just about everything/everyone as you follow Beth into a world she's not prepared for yet is trying to protect herself and the world in this intense battle of wills.

Edward, Dred, Rock, & Lucas--Beth's men--are smoldering enough to wish they could worship you! Their relationship with each other and Beth is very intense and grows throughout this novel. It grows so much so that you cannot help but root for them as they deal with the drastic changes that abruptly happen to them, especially considering the short time frame they dealt with.

As I said this novel throws you right into the action when you start reading it. Yet, for someone who hasn't read the short story prequel "The Virgin Witch and The Vampire King" to this novel--like me--then don't worry as you don't need to read it even if it'll probably make the start of this novel easier to understand.

The only thing I had a hard time enjoying was Beth when she was determined to be "Miss Independent" and had little regard to her own safety. She has a tendency to protect others first--which is good--while not taking into consideration that her men might be able to help her instead of doing to all on her own. While even though her guys did the same thing too at times once they realized their mistakes they found ways to make it up to her and tried to change for her, yet she doesn't seem to have the same consideration for them. Every annoying...

With that said, I still would recommend this novel and possibly the series (if it stays as good as it already is) to anyone who enjoys paranormal & sci-fi romances!

The door slammed open and Dred stood there holding onto his balls, growling. "She kicked me and disappeared."
Laughing, his father slapped his back. "Yep, she's a wild one, your witch. I can't wait to see your children. Go find your woman, Edward."
The three of them left the chamber. "Do you have any idea where she is?" Dred asked, rubbing the inside of his leg.

Rock laughed and Dred glared at him. "She did, but I moved in time. Told me to bite her and kicked me."

"Ya think?" Dred grumbled as he pushed open the kitchen door. ~ within Chapter 11
"There is no need to worry. If this Alton hurts her I'll eat him." Edward jerked his gaze to the creature and she smiled. ~ within Chapter 14
