Don’t Cheat Me
 
by Jackie May
(Nora Jacobs #2)
Publication Date: May 21st 2018
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

 

Synopsis:

 

One month after Nora’s violent induction to the dangerous supernatural side of Detroit, she’s finally settling into her new life as the underworld’s token human. All she wants to do is mind her own business, enjoy her new friends, and stay safe. But that’s easier said than done when she’s such an enigma to everyone around her.

 

Thanks to her unique psychic abilities, she’s garnered a reputation for being mysterious and powerful. When the alpha of a local werewolf pack asks her to help him figure out who is stealing from him, she can’t say no, even though getting involved in pack business could have deadly repercussions.

 

While tangled up in a heap of werewolf troubles, Nora can’t quite shake her old vampire problem, either. Henry is practically stalking her, Parker is breaking down the walls around her heart, and Nora’s blatant fear of the blood-sucking monsters is a delicious temptation for the natural predators.

 

Nora’s succubus friend, Cecile, believes throwing her a “coming out” party into underworld society is the best way to solve all of her problems, but Nora disagrees. If the vampires and werewolves don’t kill her, Cecile’s party planning definitely will.

 

This is book 2 in the Nora Jacobs series and should be read after book 1. It is a slow burn reverse harem series.

Kid Corner – Review: 10 Little Ninjas by Miranda Paul

 

10 Little Ninjas 

 

by Miranda Paul

Illustrator: Nate Wragg

 

A charming bedtime counting book about ten sneaky little characters who aren’t ready to go to sleep… until daddy calls the sensei to send them back to bed.
 
It may be bedtime, but these little ninjas aren’t tired. They’re sliding, swinging, and slipping out of bed! Can Daddy and the sensei ever tuck them in? Filled with mischievous fun, 10 Little Ninjas will take young readers from playtime to bedtime again and again. Kids will love the astronauts, tigers, cowboys, dragons and more! 

 

 

 

A very cute spin on 10 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed. We adored 10 Little Ninjas. The illustrations are wonderful. This is my son’s favorite book right now. It’s cute, rhyming, and full of fun characters! I love how each page is a new imaginative adventure the children go on, before nodding off to bed. 

 

 

 

 

Borrowed from the library!

The new Charles and Anna novel

 

Praised as "the perfect blend of action, romance, suspense and paranormal" (Rex Robot Reviews), the Alpha and Omega novels transport listeners into the realm of the werewolf, where Charles Cornick and Anna Latham embody opposite sides of the shifter personality. Now a pleasure trip drops the couple into the middle of some bad supernatural business....

 

For once, mated werewolves Charles and Anna are not traveling because of Charles' role as his father's enforcer. This time their trip to Arizona is purely personal, as Charles plans to buy Anna a horse for her birthday. Or at least it starts out that way....

 

Charles and Anna soon discover that a dangerous Fae being is on the loose, replacing human children with simulacrums. The Fae's cold war with humanity is about to heat up - and Charles and Anna are in the cross fire.

Dead Heat is book four in the Alpha & Omega series by Patricia Briggs.

 

I enjoyed Dead Heat, but not as much as previous books in the series. Things where slowed down in this one. The storyline takes us on a vacation to Arizona to buy a horse and visit an old friend of Charles. We get to meet the Hosteen’s pack, see a different side of Charles, reconnect with an old love and witness some flashbacks. Their is some tension in the story and on their mini-vacation things go a little aria with a Fae who is kidnaping children and causing problems.

 

To me the story was tame compared to previous installments. We do get some action, but it doesn’t happen until the end when they confront the Fae. Most of the book is about horses and Anna wanting a child. Briggs does a wonderful job on the detail with the breeds, gaits, temperament, etc.. As an equestrian it was a little much, but for those that may not know about horses and all the aspects involved with breeding, showing, etc.. it’s probably helpful. To me, it became redundant. As for the kid aspect. I found the options Anna shared viable and Charles concerns legitimate. It would be nice if they could have children, but we know why the wolves can’t carry to term.

 

I did enjoy learning more about Charles and seeing a different side to him. His relationship with Joseph was wonderful; however I wasn’t happy with Maggie’s role aka the ex. Leslie Fisher the FBI agent showed back up to help with the missing kids. And, Anna and Charles characters continue to grow.

 

I will say that Briggs is an amazing writer. She knows how to make her characters interesting and to keep adding to the world and growth. I like Anna and Charles, but Mercy Thompson will always be my favorite.

 

Audio Narration: I love the audiobooks for the Alpha & Omega series. Holter Graham did a superb job. He is perfect for the narration of this series. The voices of all the character’s come to life with him. I highly recommend the audiobooks.

Unlocking Lies (Keys to Love) by Kennedy Layne ~ Excerpt

 

Shae set her purse on the far seat and slid it across the faux red leather. Her back protested the position, though her taut muscles from the long drive most definitely appreciated the small walk from her car to the diner. She was really glad the meeting she scheduled with Detective Kendrick wasn’t until tomorrow afternoon. She would need to catch up on her sleep, if possible.

“One slice of warm apple pie along with one scoop of vanilla ice cream,” Molly announced, having asked earlier what she could get Shae to eat. The white porcelain dish was set gently on the table in front of her. “Can I get you a nice tall glass of milk to go with that? Maybe a coffee?”

“I’d love a hot cup of tea, please.” Shae had found that drinking English style tea reduced her stress level by half. She’d read quite a lot of different reports on how certain beverages could alter the way a person dealt with stress in their life. Seeing as she had an abundance of it, she’d given the theory a try by switching from coffee to tea. It had successfully worked in her daily life. “Thank you, Molly.”

The waitress had been about to say something to Shae when the bell above the door jingled, alerting everyone to another newcomer. In this case, a father and son.

Shae was glad she hadn’t taken a bite of her apple pie. She wasn’t so sure she would have been able to swallow it around the knot that had formed in her throat.

As she lived and breathed, it was none other than Jace Kendall. He’d changed since the last time she saw him, somehow managing to become even more strikingly attractive. She couldn’t help but rake her eyes down him to prove to herself that he was real. His shoulders had gained considerable width, inches had been added to his over six-foot height, and he still had that charming, crooked grin that could melt a girl’s heart like ice on a hot summer’s day.

Yet all she experienced upon setting her gaze on his gorgeous features was guilt.

She’d heard that two of his brothers— Noah and Lance— had returned home from their time in the service. Their combined chosen path had been the Marine Corps, if she wasn’t mistaken. Her mother had mentioned that Jace wasn’t due back to Blyth Lake until the end of the year, which was probably why seeing him was such a blow to the serenity she’d been trying to marshal.

Her original plan had called for her to be out of Blyth Lake before he returned.

It wasn’t personal. She was here for a purpose.

Shae was grateful that the diners had averted Jace’s attention with their overzealous reception. He hadn’t glanced her way, so he didn’t even know that she was there. The distraction gave her time to slip out of the booth and head to the restroom, though her path took her right past the small group of greeters. No one noticed, and it wasn’t long before she was behind a locked door and leaning over the sink to give her time to regain her composure.

“Why me?” Shae whispered to herself, hanging her head a little lower as she fought off the dancing lights. “I just needed a few weeks, Emma. Was that too much to ask? He will prove to be nothing but a distraction.”

Shae didn’t believe for a second that her baby sister was alive. She never had, regardless that her parents had proposed that scenario a time or two over the years. It had been easy for her to slip into a one-sided conversation, believing that Emma’s spirit was somewhere out there watching over all of them.

Then there were times when Shae’s unanswered requests made her question her own sanity. Talking with ghosts was crazy, wasn’t it?

One of the saving graces about returning to her childhood home was knowing Jace Kendall wouldn’t be in town. Shae understood that it wasn’t fair to him, but he was a trigger of guilt that she couldn’t deal with right now. She calculated her chances of just paying her tab and leaving without being noticed. After all, he’d been the reason she’d taken the car the night Emma disappeared. Given her profession, she understood that the what-if game wasn’t healthy to her mental state. She just couldn’t prevent the perpetual question from rising to the surface once again— would Emma still be alive if Shae hadn’t been with Jace Kendall that fateful night?

No one would ever know. Not unless Shae got the opportunity to personally ask Emma’s killer. 

 

 

The next book in Kennedy Layne’s KEYS TO LOVE is available now – suspense lovers do not want to miss this!

 

About the Keys to Love Series

 

Their homecoming wasn’t so welcoming. Four brothers and one sister each gave twelve years of their lives to serve their country and fulfill their family’s legacy of service. As each of them return to their home of record, they weren’t prepared for what awaited them—an unforgiveable sin that has been hidden for twelve long years. Secrets and lies are concealed in the dark shadows of the very town they were raised in, and the Kendall family will have no choice but to rely on one another to unravel the sinister evil that they all hold the keys to unlock. 

 

About Unlocking Lies

 

Secrets and lies have a way of weaving a deadly web. Returning home from his last deployment shouldn’t have been complicated, but Jace Kendall was immediately drawn into a murder investigation that hits a little too close to home. The last thing he should be doing was reigniting old passions that should have been kept buried, but he’s never been a guy who plays by the rules.

 

Shae has suffered for twelve years without knowing why her sister disappeared. The long-awaited answers are now within reach, and she’ll have no choice but to trust the one man who knows more than he’s telling. 

 

It isn’t long before Jace and Shae are lost in the mystery of solving a case that’s long gone cold. When they find the answers they’ve been looking for, a darkness is unveiled that will leave one of them in the crosshairs of a psychopath.

Early ARC Review: Planet Dragos (Elder Races #9.8) by Thea Harrison

eARC Review Copy/Bought

 

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final novella featuring Pia and Dragos…

 

Pia’s latest pregnancy has become a daily challenge, her relationship with Dragos strained with argument. That hasn’t stopped them from achieving a compromise and traveling to Las Vegas to celebrate their friend Rune’s wedding to his mate Carling.

 

From the moment they arrive, the trip goes awry. Death walks in Vegas, and Pia is kidnapped as an ancient enemy makes a move to destroy the Great Beast once and for all.

 

But the Great Beast has other plans.

 

On Planet Dragos everything goes the way he arranges it—unless someone decides to cross him, and God help them then, because he doesn’t know how to back down, and he doesn’t ever, ever let up….

 

Goodreads

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Kobo

 

 

Change is coming, decisions need to be made, and Pia and Dragos have one last challenge to over come.

 

Planet Dragos is a fast-paced action-packed story featuring Pia and Dragos in their last adventure! I had forgotten that Pia is pregnant. We see the toll that this pregnancy is taking on her, how her hormones are making her moody, and how depression of not feeling beautiful is setting in. It showcases what many women go through during pregnancy, the mood swings, the difficult decisions, the depression that can set in, etc.. We also see that even though they are a mated couple it’s not all roses and sunshine. Their are bumps along the way.

 

The best part about this novella is that all the previous cast and couples make appearances and throw in their support to help Rune and Dragos out when their mates go missing. Emotions are running high throughout the novella. It was wonderful to see Rune and Dragos confront their issues, their falling out, and work together once more to save their mates. It was sweet to have this reconciliation.

 

As always Ms. Harrion’s doesn’t give you anytime to think. You just keep turning those pages to see how everything will turn out. Many changes are happening in the Wyr demise and those changes will affect a number of characters. We also get a guest appearance of Death one of the Primal Gods… He was fun! As for Pia and Dragos. I’m happy with their story arc’s conclusion. It doesn’t mean I won’t love to see them pop up now and then, but this arc makes room for the next generation to take over.

 

Another suburb novella in the Elder Races series.

 

**Note: You should read Pia & Dragos story arc in order.

 

Rated: 4.5 Stars

Book Tag: Would You Rather?

 

I ran across this book tag on Rantings of a Reading Addict and she found it at Sincerely, A Book Nerd. Stop on by both sits and see what they had to say to the Would You Rather Book Tag.

 

Rather read only series or standalone books?

 

Series books. 

 

Rather read a book whose main character is male or female?

 

No preferences. 

 

Rather shop only at Barnes & Noble (or other actual bookstore) or Amazon?

 

Amazon

 

Rather all books become movies or tv shows?

 

Hmm… I feel that books that become movies or tv shows don’t live up to the book. But, if I had to choose I’d say tv show. 

 

Rather read 5 pages per day or read 5 books per week?

 

5 books a week

 

Rather be a professional book reviewer or an author?

 

Reviewer. I have no design to be an author. I love reading and moving from one fantasy world to another. 

 

Rather only read the same 20 books over and over or get to read a new book every 6 months?

 

New book every 6 months

 

 

Rather be a librarian or own a book store?

Oh this one’s tough. I like both options. I’d have to go with librarian. I can enjoy all the books, without the hassle of having overhead or pay rent. 

 

Rather only read your favorite genre or your favorite author?

 

Genre

 

Rather only read physical books or eBooks?

 

Oh man another difficult question. I like have both options. eBooks for the simple fact I can carry as many as I want around on one device, but I also love physical books because of the feel and smell. So, if I have to pick I’d stick with physical books even though my hubby dislikes all the physical books in our home ^_^. 

 

This tag had some interesting questions. I’d love to hear your thoughts and answers to the questions!

Save Me (O’Brien Family) by Cecy Robson (Tour) ~ Giveaway/Excerpt

 

 

Valentina rushes me. Her speed and movements inhumanly graceful. She throws her arms around me like she would a long-lost friend and not the sister she hasn’t spoken to in years.  She lifts me briefly, making a grunting sound as if I weigh a more than I do.  

Following an uncomfortably long embrace, she holds me out at arm’s length, staring down at me and asserting her apparent superiority. “It’s so good to see you, Allie.” Her face softens like she wants to cry. “Mom says you don’t have a date for the wedding. But don’t worry. Andy and I will find someone to take you.” 

Andy? I slowly turn in Andres’s direction. Lovely. 

I suppose it could be worse. I could be Andy.  

“Did you hear that?” My mother asks, beaming. “Your sister and Andy are going to find 

you someone so you don’t have to be all alone.” 

They wait, expecting me to thank them. I’d rather stab myself in the eye with Valentina’s 

pitchfork.  

I lift my chin, meeting my sister square in the eye. “I have a date,” I reply. 

“No you don’t,” my mother immediately interjects, making me feel worse because she’s 

right.   

I stand to my full height, ignoring how they tower over me, clinging with my teeth to whatever strand of dignity remains. 

“Really?” Valentina asks. She tosses back her hair, fighting it seems to keep from full-out cackling. “And who might that be? 

My breath leaves my lungs with an odd squeak as Seamus yanks me to him, pressing me into his large, firm body. His chin is smeared with cream, chocolate stains the front of his shirt, and he has something stuck between his teeth. That doesn’t stop him from flashing a smile with what remains of his pearly whites.  

“How’s it going?” He smacks my ass and gives it a squeeze. “I’m Seamus. Allie’s boyfriend.”

SYNOPSIS:

 

RT Book Reviews proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson “has the hottest brothers ever!” And in SAVE ME, it’s time for Seamus, the family’s most notorious bachelor, to find true love.

 

Three weddings. No date. What’s a hot stud to do when all the women on his speed dial are either serving dinner to their families or serving time?

 

Out of all the O’Briens, Seamus is the best-looking, most creative, and, did I mention, best-looking? Single at almost forty wasn’t a big deal until every sibling in his large and loud Irish family found “the one.” Now, he’s desperate for a wedding date, one he doesn’t have to worry will make out with the limo driver or rob the bride and groom blind.

 

Allie Mendes is the good daughter, who’s spent her life living in her perfect sister’s shadow. But when her sister steals the man Allie was supposed to marry, that shadow she’s lived in threatens to swallow her whole. Allie wants to believe a bright future awaits. But when she begs God to save her from this disastrous twist of fate, the last person she expects Him to send her is Seamus O’Brien.

 

Allie needs a stand-in boyfriend to avoid appearing as lonely as she feels. Seamus needs a decent woman without an ankle bracelet or a rap sheet as long as his muscular arms. The two make a deal to pose as each other’s perfect date. But weddings mean romance and a chance at forever neither had planned.
