Seduction by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 267
Series: Curse of the Gods #3
Genre: Fantasy, Reverse harem
Rating: 5 stars

Synopsis:

Willa Knight: Dweller? Sol? Accidental evolutionary hiccup?

Willa has never been a particularly useful dweller: she isn’t very good at chores, she isn’t very good at not having opinions, and she isn’t very good with rules- but none of that matters anymore.
The rules are changing.
The dwellers are trying to make their own way in the world, and Willa can’t seem to help getting tangled up in their plans.
Luckily, she has the Abcurse brothers to help her out-until she doesn’t. and suddenly she’s alone again in a world on the brink of chaos. With the Abcurses gone, she’ll have to rely on her wits, and her sister Emmy, to stay under the radar and survive. 
Because someone wants her dead.

But, really, what else is new?

Review:

Oh how I miss Willa.

She is probably hands down the funniest heroine I have ever read about.

I didn’t want this book to end. I can’t wait for the next book to be out. I have two more books in the series and I can’t wait while at the same time waiting for them to come out. I seriously love this series.

The world building is amazing still. Got to see another side of Topia. Got to see what Willa is like without the Abcurses since the first book. She’s clumsier. A whole lot clumsier.

I didn’t highlight many quotes in this book due to the fact of my just gobbing it up without highlighting.

What am I going to do now that I’m finished with this one?

Here’s to waiting on another book.

Wet Wednesday 01/17/18- Andrew

This week’s Wet Wednesday winner is Andrew from Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn.

This man made me laugh through the entire book. Many times were those out loud. That is hard for me to do. Not only was he funny but he was caring.

It’s that portion where I have to say that.

Andrew’s story starts out with him moving to a different town and a different college. Before college starts he gets a summer job at a diner as a fountain boy. (For those who don’t know what a fountain boy or girl is, they are the ones you see in old school diners that make all the ice cream desserts or milkshakes.)

Looks something like this picture above.

Anywho that is how he meets Sadie. Sadie trains Andrew on his first day. Sadie is very cold to Andrew but that makes Andrew all the more willing to become her friend, until he realizes he doesn’t want to be her just her friend.

Throughout the story Andrew is very caring to Sadie. He hates seeing her down and is always trying to get her to smile. Her friends like him and he even takes her to a local baseball game for their first date.

Me, personally, thinks that Sadie didn’t deserve Andrew. At all. But that’s my opinion. She took him for granted and he still forgave her at the end.

This man is the perfect book boyfriend for me. Yes he does have flaws that is what helps make him perfect.

Hero rating: 5 stars

This is the best one of them all but the ending. Stupid Cliffhangers.

Obsidian Fir by Angel Lawson

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages:151
Series: Raven Queen’s Harem #4
Genre: Reverse Harem, Fantasy
Rating: 3 stars
BR with Felicia on Goodreads

Synopsis:

After surviving the spell that split Morgan from the Darkness she must figure out what’s next in her life. Refusing to choose one mate, she’s taken five, learning to balance their needs and her obligations proves difficult. What role does Morgan play now that she’s not a puppet of the Morrigan and what other dangers are out there?

Review:

For most of the book I was bored. Finally about 80% or so did it finally get exciting.

While being exciting there is a plot twist that made me mad as hell. How dare the book end that way.

Starting the fifth book knowing that it is also short and the sixth book doesn’t come out till February. UGH!! I have a feeling this series will frustrate me even further.

Black Magic by Angel Lawson

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 148
Series: The Raven Queen’s Harem
Genre: Fantasy, Reverse Harem
Rating: 3 stars
BR wit Felicia on Goodreads

Synopsis:

Unwilling to allow the Darkness to take another life or dominate her own, Morgan and her Guardians must find a way to stop history from repeating itself. When Morgan finds an ancient spell that may do the trick will the Guardians assist her? And if they do how much risk are they willing to take?

Review:

I liked the smut in this but at the same time it wasn’t my favorite of the three books I have read so far.

There were a few mistakes that made me reread to make sure I didn’t miss anything. I am also liking certain men over others. More of the battle is being laid out but the ending has me confused.

I’m on the fence if I like where this is going.

Ebony Rising by Angel Lawson

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 130
Series: The Raven Queen’s Harem #2
Genre: Fantasy, Reverse harem
Rating: 3.5 stars
BR with Felicia on Goodreads

Synopsis:

Morgan’s life changes when she discovers her true fate. Not only must she pick a mate from one of her five guardians she also must prepare for an impending battle. Her days are spent between training, study and exploring the men she will choose from.

Life isn’t easy when you’re the Queen.

Review:

The Morrigan’s background was explained more. I wish there would be more background on the guys than what is said.

I like the concept. I am excited to see how the rest of the series will play out. I also wonder if she is going to choose a guy or if she is going to keep them all?

There are some editing that needs to go into this again but I still like the story.

I’m halfway through the third book as I write this review. Should be writing the third book review soon.

Raven’s Mark by Angel Lawson

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages:115
Series: The Raven Queen’s Harem #1
Genre: Reverse Harem
Rating: 3.5 stars
BR with Felicia on Goodreads

Synopsis:

A little luck is exactly what Morgan needs in her life. When her acceptance letter from NYU arrives she thinks maybe things are about to change. 

She just doesn’t realize how much.

It’s quite thrilling enough to discover that her new home is a beautiful mansion. But then she discovers her housemates.

Five wildly attractive young artists.

It’s easy to get swept up in the fairy-tale of it all, but this hose carries with it a secret… and so do the five enticing and charming men.

In time, Morgan learns the six of them must wield this knowledge-together-if they’re going to save the world.

Review:

This started off a little slow but it started to pick up. I’m not acquainted  with Celtic Mythology. I plan on researching more.

So far Morgan got accepted to NYU on a graduate program. She arrives at her living situation to find a three story house with attic. She meets her housemates, five men, who seem oddly familiar to her.

When it comes to RHs, I tend to be picky. This was a short book so I don’t know how I am liking that aspect of the book. I do like the story line.

On to the second book.

Claiming His Mountain Bride by Madison Faye

My edition: ARC provide by Author (release date 01/15/17
Standalone
Genre: Smut
Rating: 4 stars

Synopsis: (Copied from email from author)

My  mountain. My cabin. My rules. And she’s my woman-she just doesn’t know it yet.

I left civilization and my demons a long time ago, seeking solitude up on Blackthorn Mountain. Just one ex-Marine, a remote cabin, and the wilderness, with no distractions. 

But then she turns up, blowing in with a winter’s blizzard like a very fucking big distraction.

Blonde, beautiful, and mouthy as all hell, even when I save her from freezing that sweet little ass off.

A rough mountain man like me should want nothing to do with a rich little city girl like Katrina. Except one look at her sweet, tempting curves, and one taste of those sassy, pouty lips, and I want everything to do with her.

I saved her from freezing, but maybe it’s her who’s going to save my frozen heart.

We’re trapped up here for the storm, locked in a cabin with only the heat between us to keep us warm. Her wealthy, city family thinks they can marry her off to some rich little shit. But they’re very wrong.

My mountain. My cabin. My woman.

I’ll make Katrina my bride, and I’ll be damned if I let them take her from me.

Review:

This was a quick smutty read. I loved it. It plays at one of my fantasies. I loved Braun and Katrina.

If you need a dirty read this is perfect.

Katrina just left her fiance and both their parents at a restaurant after she found out he was cheating on her. The thing is she doesn’t want to be with Paul. He is an arranged marriage by their parents. So she escapes to the one place no one will find her. Her Uncle Stan’s cabin.

While caught in a blizzard she finds Braun, well Braun finds her. And he doesn’t let her go.

Loved this story. Has a HEA and a full on alpha male. Going to read this again.

Co-Wrecker by Meghan Quinn

My edition:Kindle Unlimited
Pages:362
Series: The Binghamton Series #1
Genre: NA, Romance, College
Rating: 4 stars

Synopsis:

What do ice cream and Sadie Montgomery have in common? They’re both ice cold, but one taste is never enough.

I wanted to be friends- I would have even settled for her seeing me as anything but a nerd- but there was no getting through. So just like any hard-headed, red-blooded man out there, I made up my mind.

I’d make my coworker fall for me.

I’d like to say it was simple, but like every other epic love story, all it took was on drunken night and a lot of naked courage to get the girl. For a moment, at least.

Love with a coworker is never simple, especially since Sadie’s trying to keep us on the low. Not to mention her persistent ex-boyfriend who won’t leave her alone. But I’ve never been good at giving up, and I don’t plan to start now.

The whole thing is a recipe for a rocky road, but I plan to eat the whole gallon, no matter how bad the brain freeze.

Review:

Many have recommended me Quinn many times. So I finally decided let’s do it. I picked this up and away I went.

But first let me point out that I don’t like the two MCs are Yankee fans. Goes against everything in my nature. Moving on.

At first I didn’t like either MCs. Not just because of the Yankee fans but because both started out shallow. After the first couple chapters of Andrew he started to get under my skin. He made me laugh so much and his passion for baseball. Swooning and drooling over here.

Are you insane? Baseball isn’t about home runs. Maybe for the guys who mask their flaws behind a bat. True baseball, the good kind of baseball. is played with intelligence, with well-thought -out moves. It’s like an equation: you have to put all the pieces together to get the perfect solution, a win. You can’t just stock your roster with home-run hitters and believe you’re going to win every game.Every player is essential in their own way from the catchers, to the fast left-handers, to the big  home-run hitters. Without every piece to the puzzle, you’ll never go anywhere.

See passion.

For the record, I’m one hundred percent Gryffindor, but if I had to be sorted into another house, I would want to go to Hufflepuff just so I could say the word Hufflepuff.

He cracks me up and makes a Harry Potter reference. Yeah he made it high on the boyfriend list. Even knocked a few down a peg that have been unmovable.

Well, Fuck if I don’t want to jump up and down, waving my cock around in excitement while shooting poppers into the air just for the hell of it, but I hold still. Excessive celebration could put me in the hot bed once again.

Can we make him real just so I can see this, please?

Now Sadie, girl I did not like her. By the end I tolerated her. It took her the whole book to finally *pop!* her head out of her ass. Seriously she wore that thing like it was a hat and knew it but did nothing to change it.

Go ahead, start throwing the pitchforks, tell me I’m the worst; curse me out for not being strong enough to let go of the man who both consumed me and broke me for so many years. It’s okay to hate me, because I hate me too. Maybe we should start an I hate Sadie Facebook group. Anyone want to be admin?

Oh grow the fuck up will ya?

She did have her funny moments with Andrew but I just hated reading her P.O.V. At the end of the book I still don’t think she deserved a HEA. I mean hello she is the reason this book didn’t get a full five star rating. Shit she didn’t even deserve Tucker.

Andrew got two and a half of those stars. I really loved Andrew. He was funny and sexy as hell. Why can’t he be real?

Moving on to Tucker and Emma’s story.

Wet Wednesday 01/11/18- Aldrik Ci’dan Solaris

This is the first of it’s kind on my blog. I thought of doing this over the winter holidays. I wanted to add more than just book reviews so here it is, Wet Wednesday.

What this is, is a post weekly to show a hunk of a fictional man that has caught my eye in the books that I have read so far this year. I was going to do this last week but the first man that is going to be the first ended up being in a five book series which I just recently finished last night. I wanted to wait to see how his story ends before I enter all the details.

Now I will be talking about this character throughout his series so I must put this.

maxresdefault (1)

Aldrik in the first book wasn’t on my good list. Not at all. He was very back and forth with Vhalla and it hurt my head. Dude pick one emotion and go with it. The second book start out when he was training Vhalla with her magic and he was still an ass.

Third book though he redeemed himself to me. He finally admitted his feeling to Vhalla in the second book but this book he was so adorable with her. Even though he wanted to protect her, which at times he did fight her a bit, he let her be the strong woman he knows her to be. He’s very proud of how ruthless she can be at times.

Now at the end of the third book he says some nasty words to Vhalla after he saves her life by being betrothed to another. He lost points on that. But made up for it in the fourth book towards the end.

The fifth book, as much as I loved his HEA, I didn’t like him as much as I did in the third and fourth book. He seemed to have lost a bit of the ruthless character.

But as the first of the Wet Wednesday, Aldrik isn’t the worst choice. His character showed amazing transition till the last book, but I’m over looking that, and he became an incredible partner for our Vhalla.

His hero rating: 4.5 stars
