Review - Gateway Crescent by Brenda Margriet



Gateway Crescent

by Brenda Margriet
Blurb

​​Jo Bendixon loves to sing, enjoys working in a coffee shop, and is secretly teaching herself to code. If only she could find a way to combine her varied interests into a career her sisters would approve.

Luke Donwell’s Catholic faith is the bedrock of his life. For as long as he can remember, he’s contemplated a vocation to the priesthood. Now it’s time to make a final decision about taking his vows.

When Jo and Luke end up working together, neither of them is prepared for the heat blossoming between them. Luke begins to doubt his calling, but Jo encourages him to continue seeking the truth. Her heart will break when he leaves her, but how can a girl compete with God?




My Review

This author is a real find, her books are easy to read and pull you into the world of the characters quickly.

This story is Jo's, another of the Bendixon sisters, and the bad timing of her and Luke noticing each other. It is bad timing because his booked in for a weekend away preparing to be a priest!

I liked Jo, she's the sister that never finishes anything according to her sisters, but she is a talented lady and as a characther is warm and endearing. Luke, conflicted Luke I did like Luke, his gracious and caring, but he did make me angry sometimes. I know he is a religious but he was a little critical of Jo's lapsed faith at times, and his mum well, that's where he got it from. 

I loved how the author had this story running along the same timeline of book 1, it was fun seeing glimpses into Maddie and Marcus skirting around each other!

This is a warm romance and is a satisfying read, full of real-life struggles and a conflicted heart!

Review - Cowboy in Wolf's Clothing (Seven Range Shifters #2) by Kait Ballenger



Cowboy in Wolf's Clothing

by 



BLURB


Born a cowboy and bred a warrior...

High Commander Colt Cavanaugh has spent his life defending his pack and its sprawling ranchlands. But the hardened Grey Wolf soldier has a dark secret that could destroy his life forever.

Belle Beaumont is a wanted woman, on the run from the wolf pack that kidnapped her. When fate brings her face-to-face with the Grey Wolf High Commander himself, rivalry becomes passion, and suddenly more than just her freedom is at stake.

Colt will fight to the death for the healing Belle brings to his battle—worn heart—and for this cowboy wolf, all's fair in love and war...




REVIEW

Colt is the High Commander of the pack who stumbles across Belle while out searching for the baddie vampires!

Colt is rugged, sexy and dangerous, especially if you're fighting him! Belle isn't scared by Colt or his status in the Grey wolf pack, she is quite a woman.

Belle is a doctor and a shifter, she isn't affiliated with a pack so has to protect herself and is quite good at it.

Colt and Belle get to spend some one on one time together in a quiet cabin and they definitely have a connection. A connection in a shifter story is never enough, so throw in some angst, danger, fun and passion and you have a winner and that is exactly what the author does.

Book 2 in the Seven Range Shifters is a page-turning read, that keeps you enthralled till the last page.

New Release and Review - The Rookie (Fire's Edge #2) by Abigail Owen



The Rookie
by 


To escape exile, Aidan Paytah has had to prove himself worthy. Every second of every damn day. He fought with everything he had to earn his precarious place on the Hurac├ín team of dragon shifter enforcers. He can’t fail or afford distractions, no matter how temptingly sweet. Total loyalty to the clans and dedication to his team is the only way.

Sera Morrison lost her parents and her husband in short order, leaving her a single mother running her family winery alone. Nothing could ever have prepared her for the discovery that she’s a destined dragon mate. But once she finds out, there’s only one man she wants—the one who walks away.

However, the Alliance Council has its own agenda. They want to use her as a political pawn and force a mating that could ultimately kill her to save the High King. Aidan has no choice but to kidnap her, even if it means their close proximity reinforces their own mating bond. And mating with him could end up being a far worse fate for Sera....

Each book in the Fire's Edge series is STANDALONE:
* The Mate (prequel)
* The Boss
* The Rookie




My Review

Aidan and Sera's story.

This is book 2 of this dragon-shifter/firefighter series and its flaming good!

Sera and Aidan noticed each other in book 1 and since then they have both been having erotic dreams about each other but neither will make a move when they are awake.

Aiden is the rookie, he had no clan so joined with the firefighters, he feels he has to prove himself more than the others and that this makes him not good enough for Sera, until something happens.

Sera is shocked by the turn of events, it literally turns her life upside down and out of her control.

The storyline has a few twists I didn't see coming and added to my enjoyment of this book. Being book 2 you know the characters more and makes you care more about their outcome.

What's not to like about this book/series, a group of hot men/dragons finding their mates, fighting fires and whoever gets in the way of their fated mates. Great read.

Review - Taming the Beast, Eternal Mates Immortal Dating Site, Book 2 by JF Holland




Taming the Beast

Eternal Mates Immortal Dating Site, Book 2

by J F Holland


Blurb


Shifter Romance. Spin-off from The Bound Series. Each book is a standalone read about a different couple who meet through Eternal Mates, the immoral dating site.


Nathan is feeling a little lost. His twin brother, Adam, who he usually shares everything with; including a home and women now has a mate. 



Thinking he just needs a mate of his own, Adam signs Nathan up to Eternal Mates; an immortal dating site. When Nathan finds out what he’s done, he leaves and ends up getting rip-roaring drunk at Liaisons, a vampire run immortal nightclub. 



Unfortunately, he gets so drunk, he wakes to find himself locked up. The only problem… it’s not a police cell. 



The new grizzly bear has become an overnight sensation at Moonton Wildlife Park… especially as bears; never mind grizzlies are not indigenous to the UK. 



The only shining light in the pickle Nathan has found himself in is his keeper, Maria. She’s a hot brunette with lips to die for and a rack he’d give his right paw to be able to… well paw. Unfortunately, as he can’t shift – nor remember why – no matter how attractive he finds Maria, he can’t do a damn thing about it. If Nathan doesn’t want to spend the rest of his very long life in captivity, he needs to figure it all out. 



However is Nathan going to get out of this little predicament?



Contains humour, and content only suitable for adults.





My Review

The beginning of the book almost had me in tears, I did not expect that!

This is Nathan's story, its all about him finding his mate Maria and its quite a journey. Did I mention that Nathan is a bear shifter. He has been told his match is about and a date is set but he doesn't show - fate has its own way and he is obviously destined to meet Maria, all be it not how he expected. 

Maria is an animal lover and works at a wildlife park. She isn't overly confident around men but animals she comfortable with. 

I really enjoyed this book, it had a few of the other characters from the original series showing up, which I enjoyed. 

I will be following this series along with the original one as they are entertaining and heartwarming. 

4.5 cuddly stars!

The Prince's Bride (Modern Fairytales #2) by Diane Alberts - Review





The Prince's Bride

Alicia Forkes went to a trendy club looking for a way to forget her troubles, and she found that in the arms of the gorgeous man who swept her off of her feet…and into one of the hottest encounters she’d ever had in her life. Awesome sex with a stranger is now something she can check off her bucket list.

Except he isn’t exactly a stranger. He’s the guy who broke her heart when they were teens, an experience she doesn’t plan on repeating.

Prince Leo can’t believe he’s finally found the woman he’s loved for years, and she wants nothing to do with him. When she shows up at his office, she looks anything but princess-like. In fact, she’s cursing him to hell and back. She may not be Cinderella, but he’s determined to prove he’s the prince for her––even if it means letting her go.




My Review

I found this book a delight, a perfect read on my lazy Sunday.

Alicia is doing her best to tick off some items on her bucket list, she isn't dying though - but a dear friend did and set her up a list to get her living more! One item is to have a one night stand, and it's certainly hot when she does. Trouble is her one-night stand has repercussions she never imagined!

This one-night stand happens in a foreign country, a made-up country admittedly, with royalty and some strange rules. Yes, these rules are not PC, but who cares this is a romance and escapism!

Alicia is going nowhere until next month as she just happened to sleep with the prince and they need to know no heirs have been made...... Off the tower with her.... no not quite she has to stay as a guest in the castle, in the lap of luxury for a few weeks. She doesn't take this news very well added into that is the shock of who the prince is! Alicia is a great character, she is strong but soft and I loved how she said what she wanted, prince or no prince.

The prince, he works hard to win over Alicia, she is not happy about her surprise or being a guest in the castle. I liked him and kept willing him on.

The story is loosely set around Cinderella, a masked night club, a sneaker/trainer and of course the prince. As I said I found it delightful and will be diving into some more of this author's modern fairytales.

Mated in Treason by Christa Paige Author - Review - Available on KU


Mated in Treason

When the kraliyet bodyguard ended up in her hospital bed after an explosion left him in critical condition, Nadia tried to warn herself not to fall in love with him. After all, she's no vampire Cinderella, and happily-ever-afters didn't happen to low-born females of the Kan Asma. But her heart wouldn't listen, and soon she wanted to claim Gunnar as her forever mate, even if it meant taking him the only way possible, as a husband in a disgraceful human ceremony.
Gunnar fell in love with his nurse the moment he saw her smile. He yearned to claim her as his, but the Council would never allow him to mingle his powerful blood with a female from a poor family. The penalty for an unsanctioned mating is a death sentence. He doesn’t care about the threats and possible consequences of making her his. Though, due to the high probability of genetic incompatibility, he can't complete their blood-bond without knowing if it might take her life. Losing her would be worse than torture.
Their only hope lies with the treasonous Faction hell-bent on destroying the very people Gunnar calls family. Determined to find a way to be mated, Gunnar seeks out the leader of this hidden uprising. Together, Nadia and Gunnar must break every law and rite of their vampire culture to become bonded for life. Gunnar will play a deadly game of subversion or pay a blood price that would sever him from their people and put a bounty on his head. They must survive a dangerous infiltration of the Faction, because they’ll do anything to be together, even if it means being mated in treason.

****My Review****

Gunnar a vampire and bodyguard, has been hurt and is in the hospital which sucks, to make it worse his nurse is hot and she is off limits.
Nadia is a nurse, she lives among humans but her life is different, there's no dating for her - she has to wait to be matched by the mating council in a goblet ceremony. She won't be mated to someone out of her social bracket..... Yes, it's not PC that's for sure, but these are vamps and have their own ways.
Theirs is a Forbidden romance so along with their longing for one another comes with angst and danger
I found this an entertaining read, the vampire world is different to many I have read before and that makes it interesting. The author does some good world building and her characters are likeable. Gunnar and Nadia do have instant attraction/lust/love, but that is common in PNR and I have no issue with that.
I will be reading more in this series.
