Review: Duncan’s Pride by Xyla Turner

Length:136 pages

Published: October 5, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

Portia:

I can handle it, I said.

Duncan can handle it, I said.

We can handle it, I said.

Shit, we can’t handle it. We said…

Duncan:

Portia had this undeniable belief that the two of us having a child would be a good thing. She had no evidence to confirm these suspicions, but I had first-hand experience. Therefore, I charted what having children would mean for my mental sanity. The percentage was low. It was especially low for my wife.

Also, I did not factor twins into the calculations.

Author’s Note: This is a novella and readers should read Book 1, Trent and must read Book 2: Duncan as those characters are heavily intertwined into Duncan’s Pride. Cameos by Mr. Vega and Faith, Trent and Bernie. Also, this book, specifically the Hero, is a bit different than a typical Xyla Turner book. It is IR, BWWM, and HEA, but Duncan is a different kind of perfect. I hope you give him another chance.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a sweet read! Duncan and Portia have twins and both of them have their own meltdowns. I still love Portia and Duncan! This was a really good addition to their story! I can’t wait to read the next book!

Synopsis

Discovering you may be the last dragon shifter alive—and that you’re destined to take four hot alpha shifters as your mates—can throw a girl for a bit of a loop. But now that Ren is getting her powers and her enemies under control, her confidence is growing. A little hike into the mountains to uncover her mother’s last secret seems like no big deal with her guys by her side.

Too bad life has other plans. The farther Ren goes, the more other secrets surface. Secrets that threaten the fragile peace between the shifters and the fae. Secrets that could destroy the bond Ren’s forming with her mates. With unexpected enemies around every corner, it’ll take all her newfound strength to survive the fray.

*This is the second book in a steamy reverse harem paranormal romance series intended for readers 18+. Expect sexy situations, intense action, ongoing storylines, and a quartet of alluring wolf, bear, jaguar, and eagle alpha shifters you’ll wish you could make your mates.*

My Thoughts 💭

I’m enjoying Ren’s journey. She’s showing she’s not one to take foolishness no matter who it’s from. Aaron and Nate are the only ones she’s mated with so far so they’re okay. Marco and West are jerks but they’re her jerks I guess. I can’t wait to see how they respond to the attack on Nate’s estate.

Review: Aries: The Zodiac Queen Book 1)

Length: 88 pages

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Published: October 1,2019

Source: Purchased

Synopsis

Twelve men. A virgin queen. One arranged marriage.

The first time I met the boys of the Zodiac Brotherhood, I was forced to my knees for the introduction. Still grieving the death of my parents, I was a child queen, a pawn in my uncle’s agenda for wealth and gain. As my guardian, he had the authority to arrange a marriage upon my eighteenth birthday.

That meeting took place six years ago.

Now those boys are powerful men.

Twelve virile men that want to own me.

And I must spend a month with each one.

Bending and yielding to their desires and commands.

Shedding pieces of my innocence so long as my virtue remains intact.

Because they want a virgin queen after the last month concludes, and my uncle plans to auction me off to the highest bidder.

Out of the twelve men, only one has my heart.

And only one can claim my hand in marriage.

If only it were up to me to decide.

My Thoughts 💭

I’m unsure about this series. “A lifetime of servitude to the man she’s to marry…..”. So 12 men just pass her around no feelings but she’s to be submissive until one gets her at the auction? Liam seemed like he cared at the end but I’m not even sure the other guys want or like her. Liam also avoids her so idk. Maybe I had the wrong idea about reverse harem romance. It was listed as reverse harem but that’s not what I got from it at all. They’re competing for her hand then one buys her at the auction? And does anyone care that her uncle gave her away to have control of her lands??? Heath is next and seems like she’s already in the dungeon with him.

Review: Captivated by J.R. Thorn

Length: 205 pages

Publication Date: March 10,2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Synopsis

Four sexy vampires. One mortal-born witch. An ancient secret that will test them all.

I’m not a very good witch. It’s not my fault. Being born a mortal sucks and my black cat familiar follows me around like a security blanket. All the other coven brats make fun of me.

My vampires don’t seem to mind. They pose as my mentors and get Aunt Sandra off my back. My initiation into the Royal Covens is only three days away. They’re supposed to teach me how to hide what I really am: a reincarnation of some ancient and powerful witch. I think they’re just telling me that to get in my pants. 

What my vampires don’t hide is their hunger for me, both for my blood and my body. That dangerous kind of thrill is going to get me into serious trouble. 

Captivated: Royal Covens Book 1 is a medium-burn reverse harem romance and part of a 3-book series.

My Thoughts 💭

This book is pretty interesting but the cliffhanger has me feeling kind of meh since Eve is powerful but was easily subdued. Other than that I thought the book was well written and interesting! I enjoyed how she interacts with her men….and Bast not sure if he’s one of the men but he’s a ancient Egyptian god so…. lol

Synopsis

The truce between the vampires and the shifters is long over. So when the two factions stumble upon a lost fae warrior who has no idea what she is, all hell breaks loose.

Charity hasn’t had it easy. Growing up in a bad part of Chicago, left by her mother at 16, she’s a survivor. So when she gets a scholarship to a good college out in California, she thinks all her dreams have come true.

Instead she falls head first into a nightmare.

At a posh party she doesn’t belong, she gets the shock of her life: vampires and shifters are real! Magic is real. And she is anything but a mundane poor kid just trying to make it.

Warrior runs in her blood. If only she knew how to use it.

Suddenly, she is trapped between two magical super powers – a cunning elder vampire who wishes to use her for her blood ties and maybe tie her to the bed, and a sexy alpha shifter who will protect her at all costs.

Her life of surviving never could’ve prepared her for this. And if she doesn’t learn to harness the fae magic running through her blood, she’ll be imprisoned forever.

Action, humor, and romance – we’re going back to the DDVN World!

My Thoughts 💭

Devon and Charity fought like crazy but I loved them together! They always had each others back. I loved how family like the pack was…except for yasmine. I can’t wait to find out what comes next for them!

Review: My Alien’s Obsession by Stasia Black

Synopsis

From the moment I scent her, I have to have her underneath me.

The human female spins and runs straight into my chest.

“Oh!” she says but then she stops, frozen as she stares up at me. “Hi.”

I, too, am stopped in place.

This female is nothing like the others I have seen. She is petite, with long flowing black hair. Her features are as foreign to me as any humans, but for some reason I find her face pleasing.

Before I can think better of it, my tongue sneaks out over my lips to scent my surroundings.

But all I can smell is her.

And I’ve never scented anything so delicious in my life.

MINE.

It’s all but a convulsion that tears through my body.

What? No! No, this cannot be happening!

My denials are weak, though.

Far louder is the cry: Mine, mine, mine, mine, MINE, MINE.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a fun and sweet read with a little bit of drama! Juliet and Shak were so adorable! Shak has been looked down upon his whole life and feels like he can prove himself with his new mission. He is totally unprepared for meeting his mate, Juliet. They have an instant attraction and they were so awkward and sweet. Juliet is with a jerk but when he disappears she decides to focus on the hot guy she keeps running into. Shak has accidental success with his mission which freaks Juliet out and then there’s kidnaping and then a little treason and a happy ending. I can’t wait to read Enzo and Ana’s story!
