My Reviews
Overall Rating
 Individual Ratings:
Power Shift
 This is such a fun story. It's a little different than I normally read. Chia is kinda like a mayor of the Alaskan town, except she goes between the human citizens and supernatural citizens. And everyone wants Hung- the bounty hunter- caught and removed. So Chia needs to not only protect her city, run it smooth, catch the bounty hunter- or lose her job and everything she has worked for. She's in a tough spot. And on top of that, there's others from towns over who want her job, her power, her city. Chia loves her town and she wants everyone to be happy but she doesn't want to kill the one guy who stirs everything in her. 

There's shifters and magic and lore in all kinds of fun going on. There's a nice mystery plot thrown into that. And the romance is of course steamy good. And I loved the side characters. The pack of dogs, including the shifters- they were awesome. Oh and er hilarious vamper roommate just made me smile. And in the mean time, Chia is learning Hung is not just some evil bounty hunter and she is more than just the manager of the town. There's always more than meets the eye. And she learns who her friends are, who really loves the town, and what's really at stake. It's a great start to this whole set of awesome books. :) 4.5 PAWS!!!

Mating Urge

I really really liked this one! I seriously will now be reading all of the goodness from this author. Seriously. This is one of the shorter stories but it was still awesome. A girl is desperate to flee her powerful evil step father jump on board a space ship to flee. Except she doesn't find an empty cubby to hide. She lands in the room of the Chief of security's room, and he's in full bloom of his muata- his mating urge. Oh boy! 

So normally, space is boring to me. BUT... this is space- with SHIFTERS!! It was awesome. Ellie is human. Aran is a cat shifter. Of course each planet and shifter has their own names and cultures and ways of life. I can't wait to learn more about that. But anyways. Aran knew it was going to be bad. He was supposed to sedate himself when he boarded the ship. It was supposed to be a basic self imposed coma. But he never got that far. He walked into his room, came out of the shower and found her. Ellie was in his room. And he couldn't help it. She couldn't either. Together, can they not only defy odds, but keep her self from her step dad and the powers that be. 

This is basically the beginning of a new series if I am understanding correctly. The next book of the series focuses on some of the side characters you meet her. And though we only get a short site of Ellie and Aran, I have a feeling we will be seeing them again. We met some of Aran's co-workers and friends, and we meet some of the people Ellie trusted and then we meet some more hot guys! LOL There's a lot left open for the next book, like meeting the parents, the mating thing, pregnancy, learning new cultures. So, I have a feeling that this is just a little bite :) Overall, I still say that I can't wait to see what's going to happen in the future and I'm so glad this one was included. Because now I wanna go and read this author's other works! I loved this one and I need more ASAP!!! :) 5 PAWS!

My Blood Runs Blue

Oh sometimes you have to just give in and like the vamper... I don't like many vampires. Ever. I have a few exceptions. Yeah, this one made the cut hahahaha oh plus a weird little twist on reincarnation, kinda, two hot guys in love with the same woman, and a strong lady who's a cop, and she won't back down from it. All in the background, it started with Kristin being lead investigator for a slew of serial killings on mothers and daughters. So when the daughter of some townsfolk she knows is murdered, she is the one to deliver the news. This is where everything goes wonky. She meets Julian. Then Alex. Then finds out what is really going on. It's crazy. Oh and I love her and her doggie partner. Seriously, Garda is awesome and I think she is my favorite lady for remembering her fur baby!! 

Kristin is a really good cop. Her husband died and she has kind of thrown herself into her career. But things are not always supposed to be that way, because fate threw a rope to her. Or well two ropes. LOL And It's really hard to pick one over the other with Alex and Julien, because to be fair, they loved the same woman, Calista. But Kristin isn't exactly Calista. So it's not fair to put her there either. And sometimes men are just stubborn anyways. LOL I kinda liked seeing their individual reaction when they each first met her. And they do both want the same thing, to kill the serial killer. And with that said, I will not ruin the story for you. I will not tell you which team I am on. I will not tell you how hot they are. I will not tell you that I loved the cop crime scene mystery solving... Oh wait I will tell you that. HAHAHA I thought the writing especially of that part was so damn good. You can tell the author did her research and dotted her i's. I was impressed. I am still impressed I liked a vamper. HAHA too bad there's no wolfies around right. Oh and to make it worse, I absolitely loved Gabe, so maybe the vampires are making a come back. LOL 

This really was a great story. I can wait to see what's going to happen in book two and I look forward to getting my hands on it soon :) 4.5 PAWS!

Darkness & Light

I am totally biased to this one. This story and this author is the whole reason I read this book. LOL I am of course on her street team and a stalker, but in a good way, because this whole series of PHENOMENAL!!! :) I had to reread it for this one because there's just so many good things going on here! Besides, Sean and Jem are just great!
OK, so I had heard some great things about this book as well, so I decided to buy it and jump on this band wagon as well. Boy this is a good one. Jem is in a TERRIBLE marriage, and Lord forgive me, but I would have killed him in his sleep! But, she's always had these dreams of wolves, and this one in particular, Sean, and then things get really real when she actually meets him!! This one has werewolves, witches, prophecies, awesome good guys, scary bad guys, and a seriously nutty husband, with fantastic human friends!! :) all around awesome right!! :)

I liked how this one plays out, as it's written in a slow pace, but the story is never slow, and the characters grow, and love, and live, and become who they are supposed to be. It's a beautiful story, with some terrible moments, and some life changing events, but a true fairy tale with bite! LOL

I know most people wouldn't make some of the stupid choices Jem makes, sometimes she is so naive, but some people make those exact mistakrs in real life, so it's so believable! I can't wait to read more of this series!! :)

Calm Assurance

I normally don't do angel books either, they go with the vamper section, but again, this set of stories has hit all the exceptions to my rules. LOL Even though it's usually predictable, it really wasn't. This girl was like bad luck on top of bad luck. She made some of her messes but some she just couldn't catch a break. And you know, there's always a hawt guy around the corner at a pet shop hahah I shouldn't joke.

 Malina is the black sheep in her family, all she wanted was to do something good, right. She wanted to take her grandmother out of the nursing home. Since her parents were murdered, her brothers rely on her as well, so she was in a predicament. She recently got a job through her brother, basically he called in many favors for this job for her. She an her friend got an apartment. She rescued a puppy. LOL See, she's trying to be good. Until she meets Asriel. He's freaking amazing, at least to her, but she has no idea what's really in store here. 

Asriel takes initiative and gets Malina's firm to give her his whole contact file. The begin not just a professional relationship but a romantic one, intensely, and it goes from there. He cared for her when she had an accident. He needs to be with her. She seems to want to be with him. And they will do a lot to be together. But there's some seriously bad things around them, after them.

The writing was well done. The suspense kept me on my toes. I was surprised a few times as well. So with that said, I look forward to the next book to see what's going to happen now! 4.5 PAWS!!

Laurel Heights
I'm gunna call this one paranormal suspense. Laurel inherited a haunted old house from an Aunt that she didn't know exsisted. Laurel is not in a happy place. Coming from an abusive, almost lethal, relationship, she just wants to escape. She is having some troubles acclimating. Oh and there's a really hot handy man that comes with the old house :) Oh and cops that are like supernatural hunters. And some not so happy Spirits. Laurel is having some troubles alright :) With extra suspense added to keep you on your toes on the side of romance, this one can appeal to several genre readers. 
So with Laurel trying to figure things out, and someone is killed near her home she is starting to freak. Is it the haunted house or is it her ex putting a hit out on her. And well, it was just awesome because the author added every creep factor. I will say, I got chills. Every little noise, creek, shadow, it made me wanna be scared. :) And though I don't do insta love, it was well written here. And I must say, there was definitely some twists, and I did NOT see that coming with the revelations. I look forward to seeing where this will go in the future :) 4.5 PAWS!!
Eternal Night
This is a good one. I definitely enjoyed this one out of the set! It's futuristic. And the City of Eternal Night, where humans are terrorized by the vampires and Icrathari. On the full moon- no, there's no wolfies here either- vampires cull the herd, yes the humans. They take kids to their place of scariness and the Icrathari in control. Ickies- yes I called them that because I give everything nick names- are kinda like vamps but they have these freaking awesome wings. I want some.  

Jaden is human. And he kills two vampires on the full moon. He is then captured and taken to the evil crazy place. I keep forgetting the name, and I'm not sure how to pronounce it *giggle* He is supposed to be the reincarnation of this really important Icky warrior that was assassinated forever ago... He is the love of the queen Ashra- the Icky leader. Yes it sounds so bad to say Icky- but sometimes my brain works in mysterious ways. LOL But Jaden will stop at nothing to protect his 5 year old half sister, Khiarra. Oh and she's also supposed to be the one who will stop all the terrors going on around town. 

This story is well written. You can't hate Ashra, you get her side, but you'll love Jaden, you get his side too. This double POV is described as Aeternae Noctis (thank you kindle for all those highlight buttons), which  each side is the human and the Night Terror. I won't lie, this is really cool concept when it's explained, and this book definitely had me turning the pages quickly to figure out who was what, and what happened, and who dies, and yeah, I really liked this one too. 
 I really can't wait to see where this one is going to go from here. If it goes anywhere. I hope it does. This world is fascinating and major props for the author's seriously good imagination! 5 PAWS!! 

Rock Solid

There's a very erotic place, Perdition House, where spirits of the place enhance what's between two people. It used to be a bordello. The spirits of the girls there stay on to fulfill their dreams... and sometimes yours. So when Jake, a carpenter takes a call in the middle of the night to fix some things there, he doesn't understand why, but he goes. He needs to. Flies across the country to get there. He meets Lexa there, and sparks fly. Lexa is the lanscaper in the area and she lives near. She gets the same call as Jake, and she goes. She knows some of the secrets and rumors- her grandparents being one of those couples. 

With all of this flying around, Jake and Lexa come to understand just how much power the spirits can have. And Belle, the owner helps keep them there to finish their jobs while the spirits work their magic. :) It's kinda creepy and kind cool all at the same time. This one is more in the erotic genre for me, instead of just paranormal romance, but it's still ok. I was such a sweet story. The spirits and the hauntings, and the weird way things are. And is it just the magic of the house and spirits, or is it really real between Jake and Lexa? I enjoyed this one, and though it maybe wasn't my favorite of the set, it was a great addition to it. I would still recommend it, especially if you are looking for a heart warming erotic, sensual, steamy romance! Yeah, it's a good one! 

Soul Avenged 

Here's a little secret. I have been dying to read this book. I made myself read it last because I knew- just knew- it was be the epicness... other than Darkness and Light. To be fair, I already know how awesome Ms Belfield is. I was NOT AWARE how awesome Ms Lake is... Oh yeah, I have a new author to stalk LOL and I'm all a flutter because this book is just the first of the series. Oh, and I am also completely obsessed with the Underworld movie franchise and boy oh boy this may be even better. I can't believe I said that :) Dear bank account... Please find a way for me to purchase quickly hahahaha I like dark, gritty, in your face, mind blowing goodness-- umm, this book is all that and more. ok now, let's get to the low down dirty awesome sauce. 

Ayden is totally kick ass. She is seriously hard core, but she is also a little broken. Ayden is hanging out with a house full of demons, umm hawt demons. Oh, and they are all awesome. But there's some crazy cool world building and lore going into it. With Ayden being Alexi- this means she was bitten by a lycan but not turned because of something in her blood. She developed some of their good traits- strength, speed- with out the bad- mindless killing sprees. And Lycans can be shapeshifters of other sort, but usually still wolfish- now you know I love me some wolves so I was a little heartbroken here. And with the house of demons part, she went to stay with the Sons of Wrath. There are seven brothers who are vengeance demons. BUT not all lycans are bad- there's a hawt one too! 

I know I said it already but there is some seriously awesome world building. It takes a bit of reading through confusion to learn everything but it's not bad. There's multiple POVs so you can keep up with them all and the supernatural elements are so different than you normally see from a shapeshifter or a demon. I won't lie... I am in serious lust for this book because it's just that awesome. And it is well placed with this box set because now people who would normally shy away from the description will come upon it at the end of this book and then they will fall in love! LOL Ok, maybe not as extreme as me, but still. I'm all about promotion here! With that said, I WILL BE READING this whole series, and I will stalk for upcoming books LOL And I will also be checking out her other books too.
Surprise surprise a seriously high fiving 5 PAWS!!!
