Synopsis

Shahzad Haidar has been called many things… evil, horrid, ghastly, incredible, alarming. The latest label was the usage of the word, ‘Devil.’ However, Shahzad is none of those things – he is a Jinn. But not just any Jinn…

Shahzad is a slick urban genie who runs an empire. His company creates magic and grants wishes under the illusion of being merely for entertainment. However, for the right price, he can make true dreams and even ungodly nightmares come true. Having little interest in human lives other than for financial gain and amusement, he is shocked when an incident occurs that challenges his lackadaisical attitude towards hominids…

Vivian Carver believes her name is synonymous with bad luck. She’s a bartender living smack dab in the middle of NYC and has had it up to here with entitled tourists, an annoying roommate and just barely surviving. She’s forced to move into a cheaper apartment, and with it comes a seedy landlord, drippy faucets and a peculiar stranger in apartment 13.

Shahzad has pulled all the stops to get to know Ms. Vivian Carver, someone who in no shape, form or fashion understands her full potential… She is one of the most beautiful humans he’s ever seen, and he is determined to make her his mate for life. Shahzad however, doesn’t offer just three wishes — he is determined to give her so much more…

Can a black hearted jinn with the world in his palm truly fall in love?

Can a woman with the world on her shoulders see the beauty in a being that teeters the line of good and evil?

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book. Shahzad was all alpha male kind of a jerk but he loved his Vivian. Vivian’s light drew Shahzad and he decided he’d have her and have her he did. Vivian hasn’t had the best of luck but an enamored Jinn turns her luck around and becomes karma for those that have wronged his love. I thought it was an interesting read.

Synopsis

Kirian and I were just twelve years old when I pulled him from the icy waters of the creek behind my house. As he looked in my direction with unseeing lavender eyes, I quickly realized our age was just about the only thing we had in common. He spoke with an accent, he had pointy ears, and he was so beautiful it made my heart ache. Oh, and he claimed to be a fae prince cursed by witches who stole his sight.

I thought he was crazy from hypothermia. Turns out, he wasn’t, and for some reason he keeps coming back. But a day in my world is a year in his. Every time I see him, he’s older. Wiser. Hotter.

Over the past six years, I’ve tried not to fall in love with him because the terms of the curse are clear: If he doesn’t wait for his fated mate in all ways, including an innocent (or not-so-innocent) kiss, he’ll be blind forever.

So when Kirian kisses me and pulls me through the portal to his realm, I make it my mission to do some damage control. It’d be a whole lot easier if he wasn’t determined to marry me… And if someone wasn’t trying to murder me every step of the way.

My thoughts 💭

I enjoyed this book! Kirian and Quinn were adorable. They’ve had feelings for each other since they were 12 and when the thought of not seeing each other anymore comes up they both get a little crazy. I loved how they loved each other! This was an interesting read with the love, betrayal, new friends and happy ever after. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Synopsis

One grim reaper. Three hellhounds who refuse to bow down to her. A monster hunting them in the shadows…

Ten years ago, I was judged worthy of life after death and returned to the mortal realm as a grim reaper. Scythe in hand, I guide souls to deliverance—and it’s time for a promotion.

My new territory is triple the size of any I’ve worked before. High death rates mean one busy reaper, and the only way to keep up is with a pack of hellhounds. Faithful. Strong. Merciless. Hellhound shifters are a reaper’s right hand in the field, shepherding and guarding souls until they can be reaped.

We get our pick of the litter from the best breeders in Hell, but for some reason, I’m drawn to the pack no one wants.

An alpha who refuses to yield.

A beta who doesn’t take me seriously.

A runt who flinches at every command.

I want them—even if they don’t want me.

Because the hunger in their eyes tells a different story. But the fact that they can’t decide whether to love me or hate me, fight me or screw me, is making our situation way too complicated.

Still, I refuse to give up. If this infuriatingly handsome trio can’t be trained, if we don’t pass the trials, they go back to a cage and a cruel demon master.

Yeah. Not happening.

Reapers and hellhounds are natural allies, and the sooner we secure our bond, the better, because as it turns out…

All our lives depend on it.

Reaper’s Pack is a standalone why-choose paranormal romance and is part of the ALL THE QUEEN’S MEN series. Each book in the series is a full-length standalone featuring layered heroes and a headstrong heroine who never has to settle for just one happily-ever-after. The books can be read in any order and are part of the same supernatural universe.

My thoughts 💭

This was an enjoyable read. Hazel has been promoted and she gets to pick her pack to help her reap. She connects with one of the “worse” packs that’s being offered. Knox, Gunnar and Declan have plans to escape service. But one by one they fall for the sweet reaper. Declan knows of Hazel’s importance to the pack almost immediately and it takes the other 2 a bit to catch up. There’s danger lurking, stubborn fated mates and a happy ending. I definitely recommend!

Synopsis

I lived my life as a prisoner.

I’ve always been told stories about the real world, but I haven’t seen it for myself. All I have ever known is pain.

And darkness.

They tell me I have been blind since birth.

When I make my escape, I think freedom is finally within my grasp…

Until I’m captured by the paranormal police for a murder I didn’t commit. Apparently, I have powers—powers I have always suspected myself of having.

Normal people can’t see through other people’s eyes, right?

Thrust into Nightmare Penitentiary, I meet a group of hard, alpha, psychotic inmates who believe I’m the answer to all their prayers. Me? I’m just trying to survive and figure out what it means to live. My new home isn’t just a prison, but a labyrinth with horrors around every corner.

But what if the cost of my life is my freedom? Am I willing to trade one cage for another?

Welcome to Nightmare Penitentiary where you come in handcuffs and leave in a body bag.

This is NOT a bully romance. These men are all hardened criminals and extreme alphas, but they adore their female. Be prepared to enjoy a painfully naïve female main character who slowly grows as the book progresses and a group of psychotic, murderous males. This book contains strong language, sexual situations, and a reverse harem romance.

My thoughts 💭

I am loving these Paranormal Prison books! Nina goes from being held captive to thrown in jail for a crime she didn’t commit. She meets her absolutely hunky and adorable mates. A group of crazy and damaged men fall for the sweet Nina. I loved the banter between the characters. Abel and Rion were absolutely hilarious! Damien was my favorite! Kai and Bronson were sweet-ish. I can’t wait to read the next book!

Review: Midnight Fae Academy by Lexi C. Foss

Synopsis

Welcome to Midnight Fae Academy.

Home of the Dark Arts.

Vampires.

And cruelly handsome fae.

A forbidden bite led to my capture and recruitment.

There are no flowers here.

No life.

Only death.

I’m an Earth Fae who doesn’t belong here.

They can play their little mind games all they want, but I’m going to find a way back to my elemental world. Even if it kills me.

Except Headmaster Zephyrus is one step ahead of my every move.

Prince Kolstov won’t stop cornering me.

And Shadow–the reason I’m in this damn mess to begin with–haunts my dreams.

My affinity for the earth is dying and being replaced by something more sinister. Something powerful. Something deadly.

The Midnight Fae believe this is my fate.

They claim that I was “recruited” for a purpose.

To battle a rising presence.

Or to die trying.

I don’t owe them a damn thing. But if I have to pass their trials to find my way home, then so be it. I survived a plague and far worse in the Elemental Fae realm. An ominous energy? Please. What a joke.

Give it your best shot.

I’m waiting.

And don’t you dare bite me.

Or I’ll make you regret it.

Author Note: This is a dark paranormal reverse harem romance, and despite Aflora’s opinions on the matter, there will definitely be biting. Shadow, aka Shade, guarantees it.

My thoughts 💭

I can’t wait to read the next book! Aflora is the Earth Fae heir and an encounter with Shadow a Midnight Fae turns her life upside down with a bite. Zeph and Kols don’t really make things any better by being hot and cold with her. They all want to protect her and it’s clear she’s more than what she thought she was. I enjoyed the riddles, secrets and mating.

Review: Conveniently Convicted by Ivy Asher & Raven Kennedy

Synopsis

Nightmare Penitentiary is no joke. The worst of the worst in the paranormal world end up at NP, and I just got sentenced there.

For others, this might be cause for freaking the hell out. But for me, it’s a fucking relief.

You see, I’ve been sold off to the big bad asshole, Alpha Bowen – thanks mom and dad! But if they think I’m going to go quietly, or at all, they haven’t been paying attention to how I roll.

Nightmare Penitentiary is the perfect place to escape, and I’m ready. If only people would stop trying to break me out. Seriously, it’s annoying.

I’m ready to relax and serve my sentence, but then I meet the prison guard, Rook. I can’t seem to escape his heated stares, the head wobbles, or the dimples. Sweet pop rocks, the dimples!

You’re not supposed to meet the male of your dreams in prison, but tell that to fate. Too bad I’m not as out of reach from the troubles hunting me down as I thought… and now, there’s nowhere to run because, like, I got myself imprisoned. FML.

My thoughts 💭

I loved this book! Sinclair was absolutely crazy and Rook was taken along for the ride. Their story was entertaining and I couldn’t stop reading. Like Sinclair’s games were crazy but absolutely hilarious.

Review: Feral by River Ramsey

Synopsis

Things are heating up at Felidae Academy.

Literally, in Ella’s case–as if her arch enemy trying to kill her wasn’t enough.

Then again, with the incredibly gorgeous Bishop and her lifelong crush vying for the right to court and claim her, maybe it’s not all that bad.

If two toms is company, three is definitely a crowd, but knowing that can’t quench Ella’s thirst for the forbidden knowledge her professor has to impart.

Sterling, Axel and Bishop are definitely up for the task of getting Ella through the semester in one piece, but the future Empress needs more than just a trio of worshipful toms. She needs Kings, and only time will tell if her wild toms can be brought to heel.

Feral is the second book in the Cats of Felidae Academy series, a feline shifter world revolving around a heroine with a magical destiny. This Cinderella retelling includes an enemies-to-lovers pairing, a university-age student having a relationship with her professor, and in true RH fashion, she’ll have all her guys by the end of the series. This is a slow-burn reverse harem. All characters are 18+.

My thoughts 💭

This was an interesting read. I can’t wait to read what’s next. Ella is finally growing a spine and Axel isn’t sure how to handle it. Bishop isn’t really the sweetheart I thought he was and Sterling is just yummy and a voice of reason. Their chemistry is hot. The guys have to put away their possessiveness and jealousies to satisfy Ella and I loved it. The cliffhanger comes before you know

Aleksandr Morozov is the CEO of the Kamenev Corporation, the owner of Tantric, a renowned BDSM club, and the country’s most eligible bachelor.
