'Misguided Allies' is a well written, well told story that immediately grabs your attention and captivates it to the very end and what an ending it is! Charissa Dufour takes us back to her creative and imaginative world where vampires, werewolves, faes, & mage are forced to live in reservations under the control of humans. The story picks up after book 1, 'Cornered Magic', with Sam Gollet, a half-far Void in the Illinois Mystical Reservation. Sam, the main character, is still ostracized by her own kind because of her ability. Heywood, the head vampire use blackmail to force her to work as a enforcer for him. This causes her to be even more of an outsider to her family, friends & Fae community. Yet she continues to go out of her way help others and try to find out who is murdering Fae in the reservation. The storylines are interesting and action packed with drama, suspense, mystery, twists and a touch of romance. Character development continues, it is great finding out more about each character their abilities and powers. I highly recommend this book and series which gets better and better. Thank you for another great story!

I listened to the Audible edition, Janelle Tedesco is an awesome narrator and storyteller. She performs the voices of all the characters gives them heart and attitude as well as their own distinct voice. She switches characters effortlessly, sets the perfect tone and adds the right amount of dramatic flair to enhance the story even more. Thank you for another great and entertaining listen!

Once Bitten is an imaginative, well written story with interesting storylines and supernatural characters. Trina M. Lee is creating a world where Werewolves, Vampires, Witches, Angels & Demons live amongst humans. The lead female character, Alexa, is a werewolf but also holds the power of magic. Alexa finds herself in a triangle, in love with Shaz, a werewolf and pack-mate. And then there is Arys, the vampire she has a bond with, a magical bond. There is great chemistry between Alexa and Shaz, he is a nice guy and he grounds her. The chemistry between Arys and Alexa is powerful. I felt Shaz was her light and Arys her dark, like the difference between night and day or goodness and evil. The secondary characters are interesting and add a lot to the story too. This is a great start to the series, I feel Alexa is just coming in to her own, it is going to be interesting to see her grow in to her powers and the direction of her relationships. This is an action-packed story with drama, mystery, suspense, twists and some hot romance.

I listened to the Audible Edition, Sarah Puckett is an awesome narrator and voice performer. She brings the characters and story to life from the pages to your ears. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to!

They captured her. They punished her. Now they will master her. First the Vakarrans took my home. Then they took my sister. Now, they have taken me. As a prisoner of four of their fiercest warriors, I know what fate awaits me. Humans who dare to fight back the way I did are not just punished, they are taught their place in ways so shameful I shudder to think about them.

Sara Fields creates this imaginative universe she where the Earth has been invaded by the Vakarrans, aliens from outer space. The Vakarrans are a male only species and they’ve come to Earth to capture and enslave females to mate & breed with. In book one, Conquered, Kira was captured when she was out by herself. The second book, Mastered, Alaina, Kira sister, sets out to find out what happened to Kira by traveling to her last known location where she had surveillance equipment set up. Alaina checks the video feed and finds out Kira was indeed captured. She also sees one of the Vakarrans fall in to one of their traps, since he is not on his own it leads to her own capture by the Vakarrans. Another team of four Alpha Vakarrans, Ryder, Morgn, Aarom and Davon. I enjoyed the storylines, they were past paced and action packed. There was also drama, twists and some steamy hot RH BDSM. While this can be read & enjoyed on its own, I recommend reading or listening to Conquered first. Doing so will give you more insight and a deeper understanding the world dynamics Sara Fields masterfully created. Thank you for another enjoyable & entertaining story.

The moment I saw her, she woke something buried deep inside of me. A wild need. A desperate desire. She’s stranded and alone, needing shelter from the storm. And I'll do more than keep her warm. I’ll make her mine. Some say there's no such thing as happily ever after. But that changes tonight. I will show her I'm more than a mountain man. I am her beast.

“I’m hiring you to do more than guard her, Zander,” my new boss explained. “You’re gonna be her rock. Her human Valium. Her trusted friend. And she’s gonna be your mission from God.” “So I’m her babysitter?” “Her babysitter, her bodyguard, her f--king service doggie. Whatever she needs or wants, that’s what you’ll be. Anything except her booty call.” The vein in my new boss’s neck bulged. “Touch her and I’ll do more than fire your ass, Zander. I’ll rip off your balls.” My buddies laughed when I told them about my ridiculous new job.

Another great book in the Morgan Brothers series. This story is Zander, a brother from another mother and honorary Morgan. Lauren Rowe continues to entertain her readers and listeners performing with John Lane. Zander takes a job as a bodyguard hoping to one day tour with Dax's band, 22 Goats. Instead he is assigned to guard Aloha, a beautiful pop star. In true Morgan fashion a bet is placed to see how long it will be before he falls for the pop star. It is great to learn more about Zander and his huge heart. Also great to see the Morgan clan, which has expanded to include wives and girlfriends. Love the humor and banter, Lauren Rowe does not disappoint and continues with the fun dialogue and keeps it fresh. Thanks for another awesome story & Audible listen! I can't wait for Dax's book.

It wasn't the way this kind of story was supposed to go...insta-love isn't supposed to turn into insta-hate. But that's exactly what happened when the dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag looking for nothing but a little side action. And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a "sociopath"? Asshole. And now, three months later, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I've got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.

The first time I laid eyes on Lydia Decker, I couldn’t speak. Or breathe. Or string two coherent thoughts together. And I don’t mean any of that figuratively. No, when I first laid eyes on Lydia Decker - my physical therapist - I was lying flat on my back in the ICU, high as a kite on painkillers, breathing on a ventilator, my bones as broken and splintered as my spirit. She said she’d been assigned to fix me. But what I didn’t know...what I couldn’t possibly know...was that Lydia Decker needed fixing far more than I ever did.

After reading “Ball Peen Hammer” in one night I became an overnight fan of Lauren Rowe. I decided to binge read/listen to all her books and went in chronological order starting with “The Club” Now I am moving on to read the rest of “The Morgan Brothers” series. “Hero” is Colby & Lydia Decker’s story and another great book by Lauren Rowe. It is well written and has a lot of heart it in, an emotional rollercoaster at times. There was a lot of drama in this book and some great moments. I loved how the brothers stepped up to help Theo. Well done on handing the bullying too. IN addition to all the seriousness there was that Morgan humor in it as well. You got to love that Morgan banter, Lauren Rowe sure has a way with words.

Michelle A. Valentine has a way with words, she has a wonderful writing style and regardless of the world she creates she keeps it real. She brings us in to a bikers world, gives us a badass biker by the name of Cade. Cade’s is sent out on a mission by his bike club to capture the rival clubs daughter to hold for ransom. Typical biker rivalry, but the difference here is what happens when Cade meets his intended target, Piper.

I easily transitioned from high school jock to egotistical playboy. And when the chance to leave Blue Ridge presented itself, I signed on, dropping everything without so much as a second thought. Settling into the lifestyle of a professional athlete, I indulge in the pleasures of my high-profile status. The only nod to my roots is my annual trip for a celebrity spotlight fix, but when I receive a call that forces an impromptu return home, everything I left behind comes barreling to the surface.

“Shattered Beginnings” is a well written and well told story that takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride, shattering my heart into to a million pieces. I sure hope the 2nd book puts those pieces back together. The storylines are realistic and not only to they grab your attention and captivates it but they grab your heart as well. You can not help but to feel for Ragan, she may be broken but she is a survivor and I do hope beautiful things come her way. Branch McGuire, appears to be a jerk at times but behind that facade is a broken boy with a big heart. He is afraid to come out from behind that facade though, there are huge walls built around that heart. There is so much more I could say about this book but I will only say the most important thing and that is go and either read it or listen to it, I recommend doing both! I am looking forward to “Salvaged Hearts, the 2nd book of “No Longer Broken Duet” I am hoping there will be redemption for each and a happy ending for both. Thank you Lilly Wilde for this great story, you are forgiven for shattering my heart I am an overnight fan!

I love & enjoy shifter stories and Scarlett Grove does not disappoint. She impressively creates this imaginative world where shifters live amongst humans that is believable and realistic. The story is well written with interesting storylines that grab your attention right from the start. The characters are likable and well developed. The chemistry between the leads, Juliet and Levy, was smoking. I love Fate Mountain and the bear clan, also loved the dynamics of the clan and their bear names, starting with the alpha, Chief Bear, then you have Wild Big, Brew, Ski and Geek Bear. Speaking of Geek Bear, he is a computer whiz who creates a human-shifter dating site and how Juliet and Levy meet. I highly recommend this entertaining story, it has drama, action, humor, romance and some hot shifters. Scarlett Grove, thank you for this great story I am looking forward to rest of the clan’s stories.
