For The Blood Of A Crow by T.S. Joyce review!

Synopsis

Bailey Wulfe has her blinders on, her focus straight forward, tromping through life to the future that has been planned for her since she was Turned. She’s been promised to a high-ranking wolf in her Clan, but one chance encounter with a familiar face and she’s questioning everything she’s ever wanted. The boy she knew as a child has turned into a monstrous man. And from the looks of Rike, his bloodline will be the death of him and everyone he encounters. Maybe she can stop his freefall…if only she can get him to remember her.

Rike Blackwood needs one thing to go right. His brother is a traitor and has run off, his Alpha is in transition after losing half his Clan, and Rike’s own last name is poisoning him from the inside out. One steady day is all he needs, but while his Clan is coming out to the public that they are shifters, a sassy little she-wolf claims they’ve been married before. Nice try, Little Wolf. He would’ve remembered being married, but she does look familiar. And now he can’t seem to stop hunting her. They say curiosity killed the cat, but this time, it just might kill a crow, too.

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love a good shifter romance! A crow and a wolf. Bailey and Rike were too cute! Rike can’t remember his childhood and Bailey but when he bumps into her he starts to remember and it gives you all the feels!

Nanny & The Beast by Georgia Le Carre Review!

Synopsis

Yuri

A year ago Yulia, my niece, lost both her parents. Two months ago she completely stopped speaking. Her psychiatrist thought a gentler presence around the house might be good for her. She suggested a nanny for the child. Naturally, I would do anything that would help her regain her happy childhood.

But I didn’t expect the woman who stepped into my office. Yeah, she’s got my attention, all right, but for all the wrong reasons. I sure as hell don’t need this ripe fruit to distract me day and night in my own home.

I tell her she hasn’t got the job, and watch her leave my study, but Fate has other plans. Resistance is futile.

April

He lives in a white mansion in London’s Knightsbridge, a magnet for playboys and Russian billionaires.   Big, burly bodyguards look at me as if I’ve not come for a job interview, but to steal the family silver. Whatever. I maintain my professionalism, I’m determined to get this intriguing job of caring for the girl who refuses to speak. A prim woman leads me to his study. She knocks, and a deep, smooth voice beckons us to enter. The door opens and I set eyes on Yuri Volkov.

OMG.

His eyes are like a wolf’s. Pitiless. Mesmerizing Dangerous. Obviously he Is drop dead wrong but, I can’t stop imagining his big, tanned hands caressing every inch of me. After the briefest interview in the history of interviews he informs me I haven’t got the job. As I walk away, humiliated, from his study, it happens. The unthinkable.

And I’m suddenly back in the game.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

April and Yuri was lust at first sight and I loved it! April goes to an interview for a job to be a nanny and is instantly attracted to Yuri. Yuri feels the same way and decides she can’t work for him because of the way her feels. But his niece Yulia has her heart set on April being her nanny so he ends up hiring her. When they both finally get over their issues they make such a cute couple! I loved this book and will definitely be reading the next one!

Blurb
Brielle
He consumed my mind. I never even crossed his.
From the moment I met Michael, mysteriously brooding and dressed like a dark
angel, there was something electric between us. Or so I thought.
What I believed was a seductive and undeniably raw attraction has ended up
being something else entirely, something I never foresaw.
Because he’s a skilled liar and a master manipulator, and I downright misread
his intentions.
And now I’m afraid that falling for the man in black might become my biggest
regret.
Michael
An overwhelming remorse haunts me after losing my fiancée, but I’m not a man
who can afford to lower my guard.
I’m a ruthless criminal, one of the top members of the merciless mafia, the
Chicago Syndicate, and I moved back home to keep to myself and do a job.
But when a curvaceous pastry chef with a beautiful smile and a possible link to
my former life catches me in a reckless moment, I’m forced to watch her and
strategize a plan.
Because I’m not sure if she’s out to get me or if she’s just an innocent
civilian who doesn’t know that the restaurant she works at is actually a front
to launder Syndicate money.
And I intend to find out if she’s playing me while I’m playing her. But then
the demons that haunt me force me to make a huge mistake…

Deceit has a price—I just have to make sure I don’t pay with her life.

A standalone novel from the Chicago Syndicate world.

This was my first book by the author and I really liked it! There are 8 other books in this series and I feel like I need to read them. Or at least Fallon’s story! Brielle and Michael were crazy but I enjoyed their story! They had great chemistry and I loved how Michael always seemed to have Brielle’s safety in mind! Brielle was a clever sweetheart and I loved her! This was a nice read and I’ll be reading more from this series!

SYNOPSIS

USA Today and International and bestselling author J.C. Valentine is back with the latest in her captivating, enigmatic, and rousing world of the Spartan Riders MC…

They’ve been through hell and back and have the scars to prove it.

Kade “Moose” Hunter doesn’t tolerate drama. He’s cocky, unapologetic, and all about the quiet side of life.

That’s why Mouse fits him so well.

Angel “Mouse” Grace isn’t like the other women hanging around the club. She’s sweet and gentle, and when Moose gets her engines revving, her passion burns bright. She’s the yin to his yang, and Moose is almost certain she’s the one, but life is never that easy for a Spartan.

The catch? Their town is falling apart.

A cesspool of crime and addiction, the Spartans face yet another challenge: confront crime lord Manuel Contreras and risk war, or worse, death. When Angel’s kid sister rolls into town and takes a shine to the Spartan’s mortal enemy, Moose is torn between doing what’s best for his family…and what’s best for his love life.

Will he be able to strike a balance, or lose everyone he cares about in the process?

*NOTE* COCKY can be read as a STANDALONE! Although a part of the Spartan Riders series, COCKY features a brand new couple, therefore, can be read as a standalone!

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book can be read as a stand-alone but I recommend reading the others first to better appreciate this one. I loved Moose and Angel. I really loved Moose lol. They had great chemistry. This was a good ending to the series! I definitely recommend it!

•Release Blitz/Review• Too Bad So Sad By Lani Lynn Vale!

Title: Too Bad So Sad
Series: The Simple Man
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date:
Tyler Cree has never been good at the whole look and don’t touch thing.

From the moment he was old enough to walk on his own two feet, he’s been looking for trouble.

Trouble comes in many forms…quite a few of those forms being the female persuasion.

Tyler knows what girls want—a bad boy. And he has the bad boy image down pat.

Ex-military—check.

Hot cop—double check.

A bike between his legs and a devil may care attitude—oh, yeah.

All the girls want him, yet none of them will have him—at least not all of him, anyway. A certain appendage they can have all they want. His heart, however, is not up for grabs. The useless organ inside his chest was broken and battered, mutilated by the one woman he thought would keep it safe.

Spoiler alert: she ripped it to shreds and set fire to the pieces.

To protect himself, Tyler keeps everyone at arm’s length, and never lets anyone get too close.

Then Reagan Rose Alvarez barrels into his life, and trespasses on not only his property, but straight into his abused heart. One glance is all it takes, and he’s suddenly thinking about things he hasn’t thought for quite some time—thoughts that a man like him should never have about a woman like her.

One moment of weakness is all it takes, and suddenly he has no other choice but to go on the offensive.

Keeping her is the only other option now.

Turns out, his heart isn’t as broken as he thought it was.
The only problem is, now the little she-devil holds it in the palm of her hands, and she has no clue just how much power she holds.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“I didn’t know he was planning to breathe so loudly when I agreed to move in with him. -Reagan talking about Tyler” 😂😂😂

Another great addition to the simple man series! Reagan and Tyler are both crazy but I loved them so much! Tyler tried to fight his attraction to Reagan at first and she decided she was going to let him come to her…I just loved it! The chemistry between them is hot and their banter is hilarious!



I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 9, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.

Power Of Five by Alex Lidell Review!

Synopsis

Four elite fae warriors. One mortal female. A magical bond they can’t allow—or resist.

Orphaned and sold to a harsh master, Lera’s life is about mucking stalls, avoiding her master’s advances, and steering clear of the mystical forest separating the mortal and fae worlds. Only fools venture into the immortal realms, and only dark rumors come out… Until four powerful fae warriors appear at Lera’s barn.

River, Coal, Tye, and Shade have waited a decade for their new fifth to be chosen, the wounds from their quint brother’s loss still raw. But the magic has played a cruel trick, bonding the four immortal warriors to… a female. A mortal female.

Distractingly beautiful and dangerously frail, Lera can only be one thing—a mistake. Yet as the males bring Lera back to the fae lands to sever the bond, they discover that she holds more power over their souls than is safe for anyone… especially for Lera herself.

Power of Five is a full-length reverse-harem fantasy novel.

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The book was enjoyable but not what I was expecting. Not going to lie I was expecting more adult time but it was barely any. Magic has chosen Lera a mortal to be River, Tye, Coal and Shade’s 5th. The guys start off believing it’s a mistake and wants to have Lera cut from the bond but by the end of the book they realize that they love her and they are stronger than they’ve ever been with her. It was a cute story I’d recommend if you don’t mind light steamy times for a reverse harem.
