Synopsis

Lions, tigers and jaguars are just the beginning of Ella’s problems…

As an unremarkable stray left out on the streets, Ella thought she’d finally found a family in the Hill pride. Instead, she found herself living as a glorified maid, serving the future King of the colony himself.

Axel is rude and careless at best. At worst? He’s downright cruel, and he seems to take personal delight in reminding Ella that she’ll never belong. Too bad her heart never got the memo.

Axel and his perfect girlfriend are all but destined to rule the colony, but when the Unveiling comes around, it’s Ella who’s chosen as the next Empress by the moon itself.

And the claws are out.

Now every tom in the colony is vying for Ella’s attention, including bad boy Axel, the current Empress’ gorgeous son Bishop, and a mysterious Academy professor named Sterling whose ice blue eyes are every bit as dangerous as his caustic wit.

Choosing between the three of them is hard enough, but an inconvenient heat has other ideas. Ella’s sure she’s living her own Cinderella story. She’s just not sure if she’s the princess or the mouse.

My thoughts 💭

This was a good start to the series. I just wish a little more would’ve happened before the cliffhanger. Ella is a stray who isn’t treated very well and she’s chosen to be the next Empress to the shock of most people. Ella is a sweetheart who’s just trying to make it through academy but jealous and scared folks are being kind of ridiculous. Ella is the next chosen Empress and everyone is going to treat her like a pariah…Axel is a selfish jerk but I liked Bishop and Sterling and wanted her to choose them but maybe next book.

Hard working criminal lawyer Elizabeth Montgomery is finally taking a vacation, a solo trip to the mountains of North Carolina to a cozy little cabin in the woods. Unfortunately, she doesn’t even get to spend one night there. She takes an early evening hike and ends up on the wrong side of a vicious animal attack.

Or so she thought.

When she’s found and rescued by sexy stranger, Abraham, she soon finds out it was a werewolf that attacked her. And that she’s the newest member of Abraham’s pack.

Now Elizabeth must navigate the changes that come along with becoming a werewolf while also learning to fit into this tight knit pack. For an only child who rarely speaks with her own parents, getting close to Abraham and his family might just be scarier than becoming a werewolf.

Review: Kissed By Moonlight by Cate Corvin

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length: 234 pages

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Life in the Cage is already hard, and my four gorgeous guardians aren’t making it any easier.

I’m Lu Darke, student, prisoner, and wielder of the rare magic wildfire. The Headmistress of the Cimmerian Reform Academy is definitely up to something sinister, but I’m not escaping the Cage until I’ve unraveled its mysteries. A mysterious ghost is following me, a new Divination professor is taking my nemesis under her wing, and Holly’s sketchbook promises a grim future.

I’m not going down without a fight.

Roman Frost ripped my heart open and he’s back for more, but there’s no way I’m letting him in again.

Shane is my pillar and champion, but the territorial need to mark me is driving him mad, and his visions grow darker by the day.

Professor Steele has promised me his heart, but whatever he’s hiding might be an insurmountable obstacle between us.

And Locke has finally ventured from the depths of Cimmerian. It hurts him to be so close to my blood without a taste, and he can’t fight his true nature forever.

Cimmerian’s secrets are much darker than I ever could have believed, and they threaten to destroy us all- but one of my protectors might be the key.

Kissed by Moonlight is the second novel in a steamy, medium-burn academy reverse harem romance trilogy. No choosing, no cheating- only unbridled passion and emotional angst in a haunted gothic mansion! Mature readers only.

I can’t until Lu gets her revenge! And maybe get one of her men back 😩 Bloom & those crazy gilts need to be taken down!

Review: Rage by K.A. Knight

Synopsis

My husband killed me.

Then he screwed his way through the city, the only problem? I didn’t stay dead. It seems killing me woke something deep inside, something so dark and buried so deep I never knew it was there.

I don’t know what I am, I don’t really care. All I can think about is revenge, even as the monsters in the dark start to surround me. Their horns and black eyes, mouths filled with fangs claiming I am theirs.

My monsters will have to wait, he will regret the day he crossed me.

Are you scared of the dark? You should be.

*18+ Reverse Harem Romance. Warning this book contains scenes and references of abuse/assault that some readers may find triggering. Along with graphic sex scenes and violence. This is a dark book*

My Thoughts 💭

This book was interesting. I liked the storyline but some the crazy things Dawn says and does threw me off. Dawn was killed by her husband and comes back changed and ready for revenge. She has mates who heard her cry and is ready to help her with her plans. This was an interesting book and I’ll definitely be reading the next one.

Review: Void by Raven Kennedy & Coralee June

Length:382 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

I was born of nothing.

I’m a Void, a rare supernatural capable of absorbing powers at the brush of my skin.

Feared. Hated. Untouchable.

Thibault Academy is full of supernaturals that want me dead, and the most powerful of them, the Paragons, will stop at nothing to ensure I go back to the hell I came from. They’re cruel, heartless, and have created an unlikely alliance to take me down.

If I want to learn how to control the nothingness, I’ll have to survive them.

I was born of the void, but I’ll die from the power.

This is a reverse harem bully romance.

My Thoughts 💭

This was a really good paranormal bully romance. Devicka is a powerful void and is a pariah in supe society because everyone believes she’ll just take their power. Render, Gritt, Quade and Hyde are a little prejudice at first but as they get to know her their view of her changes. The guys are jerks at first but they didn’t take it too far. I enjoyed how each of them became protective of her and her of them. This was an enjoyable read!

The Human Omega by J.L. Wilder

Length:174 pages

Rating:⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

I was raised by wolves. I never imagined I would be forced to marry one.

All my life i’ve been an outsider. A human raised by a pack of wolf shifters. And now that that I have returned to the pack for the alpha contest, the unimaginable has happened. I am to be the next alpha’s omega. I am to give birth to werewolves.

What scares me most is who will be the next alpha. Will it be Axe, my protector, my greatest friend since childhood? Or will it be Hawk, who only wants to control and dominate me? Which wolf will win the alpha contest and claim me for life?

My Thoughts 💭

The synopsis made it seem interesting but it was kind of boring for me. It seemed like it was going to be maybe a love triangle or two hot guys trying to compete for Kiki and to be alpha but it wasn’t. Kiki was annoying. Hawk was horrible and no competition for Axe. Axe was kind of weak to me. He felt like Hawk cheated during their battle but said nothing until later on. It was just meh for me. Just Kiki reconnecting with her childhood crush and finding out she may be more pack than she was lead to believe.

by Lorelei Moone
Shifters of Black Isle, #1
Publication Date: July 20, 2018
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance, Shifters, Novella, Standalone

#FREE! MARCH 1-3!

SYNOPSIS

Abandoned by her people, a young woman was being sent to her doom.

Kelly was going to be a prisoner; a slave. At least that’s what she thought as she waited for the mysterious giants that lived on the Black Isles to claim her. A human sacrifice, once every eight years. That’s what it took to keep mankind safe from these savages.

The human would ensure the survival of his bloodline. Whether he liked it or not.

Broc’s reign as King of the Black Isles had lasted seven years already. That was a long time to go without a queen and therefore, an heir. He knew what he had to do; to claim the human offering and make her his own.

When they met, it changed everything. A glimmer of hope, even of love, in unexpected places. But life on the Black Isles was far from simple. And there were powerful secrets, yet to be uncovered, that could change everything yet again.

Claimed by the King is the first in Lorelei Moone’s brand new fantasy romance series, Shifters of Black Isle. Shifters, magic and relatable characters; set in a mysterious, distant land, where anything seems possible, and yet all its inhabitants hold dear could be destroyed in an instant.

Gypsy Freak(All The Pretty Monsters Book 2) By Kristy Cunning!

Synopsis

What’s it like to be a monster in a town full of monsters, who don’t know you’re a monster?

Complicated and a little scary, but doable.

What’s it like to be the girl who can’t die…that everyone seems to always want to kill?

Frustrating as hell.

What’s it like to accidentally raise psychotic alpha vampire everyone fears, who drops a lot of bodies on his first day out as a ‘gift’ for your troubles?

Terrifying, if I’m being honest.

What’s it like when that crazed vampire tells you he wants you to be the happy little intermission, during an ongoing ancient story, and expects you to use your vagina to draw in a werewolf alpha, a Van Helsing alpha, and a sexual deviant alpha, so he can have his old friends back?

That’s when a girl has to stop, look around, and question her life choices.

I really don’t know how this stuff keeps happening to me. Life was simpler when it was just me accidentally blowing myself up while trying to create potions and shampoo.

I’ve lived my life in such secrecy that I’ve spent most of it lonely. So lonely, in fact, that my best friend is a delusional ghost. I’d rather focus on her than all the crazy things happening in my life at current. Ever since coming to this town, I’ve had my throat slit by vampires, attracted way too much attention from some powerful alphas, and did a lot of regrettably stupid things because…I’m too gullible for shady monsters.

To them, I’m the fool.

To them, I’m the naive girl in over my head.

To them, I’m the pawn on a worn chessboard, while the seasoned players knock me around.

Meanwhile, I’m still left to figure it all out on my own, because, just like me, no one wants to share their secrets.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am loving this series! I love Violet and how she’s winning over the alphas and omegas! I liked how there was finally a little background on why the alphas weren’t on very good terms in the first place! I’m still on the fence about Arion’s feelings for Violet he seems like such a jerk and then he’s sort of nice! I don’t like how Violet’s mother left her nothing to go by so she’s getting information accidentally and not because the guys actually answer any of her questions. I can’t wait for the next book and hopefully get more info about Violet’s family.

Gypsy Blood(All The Pretty Monsters book 1) by Kristy Cunning

Synopsis

I’m not all that special, really. Or uncommon. I’m sure there are a lot of girls with old gypsy blood who see the dead, have killer cults hunting their family, and turn into something that gets scary when they panic. Yep. Completely unoriginal, if I do say so myself.

Move along. Nothing to see here. Nope. I’m just an ordinary girl.

I wish people would believe that.

I’ve been labeled as one thing or another for most of my life:

Death Girl.

Crazy Gypsy Girl.

Gothic Chick.

Monster…

It took my mother’s death for me to finally start getting answers about what’s really been going on. Unfortunately, most of the answers come from men…who aren’t just men. Somehow, I’ve gone and landed myself in a world truly filled with monsters, and I’m starting to think this is where I should have been all along.

Only…I don’t understand what’s going on. I’m walking into the middle of a story that’s thousands of years old, and I’m the new girl on the block who doesn’t have a clue how this world even works. My only guides happen to be the most lethal of the bunch.

They decide who lives or dies. They decide who gets stabbed or tortured.

Yeah…

I’ve gone and drawn attention to myself, and the ones paying attention are the ones everyone else seems to fear.

How do these things always happen to me?

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a compelling read. It’s a reverse harem but it’s like they’re kind of enemies but not really lol. Violet takes over her mom’s business after her mysterious death. Violet wants to know more of what’s going on but nobody is really giving her answers or helping her but a ghost she meets names Ace. Ace is really Arion and crazy as heck. Damien, Vance and Emit put him in the ground a while ago due to him being a crazy person. Arion tricks Violet into freeing him and I felt bad because she really wanted to help her other ghost friend not become the answer to they guys curse problems. I can’t wait to read the next book that cliffhanger ending is driving me crazy lol!

Mated To The Capo by Georgette St. Clair

synopsis

After an epically bad blind date, and far too much tequila, waitress/bike messanger Zoey Eastgate swore off men forever and got a tattoo that says ‘love bites’. Maybe she shouldn’t have tempted fate. Because now love, in the form of a very powerful Mafia wolf, has bitten her right on the ass, on a full moon. And according to the Blood Oath Pack, the “moon-bite” means she is now the mate of Dominic Lombardi.

Now her new “husband” is appearing everywhere – no matter how far she runs and no matter how well she hides. He’s crowding her world, refusing to take no for an answer, letting her know that on the next full moon, she’ll be his bride. If only her body didn’t respond so strongly to the Capo of the most corrupt mob pack on the west coast. If only he didn’t threaten her family and her livelihood one minute – and then serenade her with sexy Italian love songs which she can’t understand a single word of, the next.

If only new dangers weren’t rearing their ugly head and threatening not just Zoey, but all of Encantado, the supernatural sin city she calls home. When dark magic comes too close to home, will she stop running long enough for her wiseguy werewolf to claim his bride – or will she find herself fitted with a cement overcoat, sleeping with the fishes?

My thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️

I thought the story was good, it had good characters and I liked the mafia werewolf angle. I wasn’t so fond of Zoey just avoiding Dominic for every little argument. Dominic was kind of closed off but he got better towards the end. They had good chemistry but the back and forth with Zoey avoiding him and wanting nothing to do with him got old for me fast.
