Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Federal Paranormal Agency collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I came across this author some time ago and absolutely fell in love with the worlds she creates. When I saw the name of the series for this particular story line, I knew it was what I wanted to read and probably needed. There is always sexy characters, interesting story, excitement, adventure and danger in these books. This story however was a bit different.

David was born Tae and his life was taken from him by a vicious killer. He came home to find his parents dead and then he was injured when he ran. A six month coma left him with out his memories but time will tell. Living with his guardian, he has spent a majority of his time researching serial killers, which keeps his mind on the past. Years have gone past and his past is coming back. He needs to know the truth, who killed his parents and why. He might just regret asking those questions.

Now he is recruited by the FPA and is sent in to find the killer. What he finds is not what he wanted. Eric is a medical examiner as well as a vampire. He has kept watch out for David, but there are some pretty wicked twists to this story that will change things.

Now for me the story is a bit rocky and doesn’t flow like it should have. Also the ending was way wrong, I am sorry but a killer is never reformed. To hold such a secret and for the amount of people involved would be impossible. The means to an end or in this case vigilante killings are just as twisted as those they go after.

I felt let down with this book, and sure do hope the rest don’t follow the same line.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: One moment of helping someone changes Gavin’s life forever. A moment which he regrets everyday. Life is definitely not easy when you are convicted of a crime you did not commit. To make matters worse the place where he sent is a living breathing hell.

My heart broke at the injustice that was done to Gavin, the brutality forced on him by embers of a vicious gang and the uncaring of the staff at the place. I was extremely surprised he did not turn out to be a criminal after everything was said and done.

Cato was an interesting and fascinating person. Having come from the future was eyebrow raising. His reason for helping Gavin was sweet. Alas not all is kosher when Gavin alters history and sets a chain reaction in time that changes things for the worse.

I loved this story despite some parts I cringed at. It was well written with a suspenseful atmosphere that kept me on the edge of my seat.

I will warn people there is rape mentioned seeing as how Gavin is in jail.

Review: Wow what a great story. Casey takes care of a mountain lion brought into the clinic but he quickly realizes it’s a shifter. Jason wakes up and is annoyed and worried that he was tranqed on refuge land. This prompts Casey and Jason to investigate to find out what is going on.

I loved this couple. They had their sexy times as well as serious moments as well. The investigation had great details that I highly enjoyed reading. This series just keeps getting better and better with each book.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Blurb: As a beloved Rein Dear and Christmas elf for Mayor Kringle, Donner prides himself on his flawless reputation, good sense, and wise decisions. Donner never does anything until he’s thought it through properly. He’s certainly not one to get flustered, infuriated, or fall prey to romantic nonsense. At least not until the most unlikely of elves begins chipping away at Donner’s defenses.

Calder is a Dockalfar—a dark elf. He’s wicked, untrustworthy, and armed with lethal magic. At least that’s what everyone thinks. It’s easy for them to believe the worst and mistrust him before they’ve even spoken to him, but Calder is out to prove that he’s more than his Dockalfar blood, especially to a certain Rein Dear who has caught his eye. But it will take more than sweet words for Donner to admit what’s in his heart.

ISBN-13: 978-1-63477-813-8

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Calder, a dockalfar dark elf is entrusted by Mayor Kringle to teach Calder’s brother Cupid how to control his dark powers. While there he is smitten by Donner. But alas Donner wants nothing to do with him.

Events out of their control happen and Calder is asked to help. I loved the festiveness and suspense of the story as Donner realizes you can not judge someone by what others have done. It is truly a magical tale of two opposites who come to love one another.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Maverick trauma surgeon Ashton “Snow” Frost keeps the world at a distance, relying only on his three closest friends to keep him connected. But when a ghost from their past returns to Cincinnati, Snow stands to lose everyone he loves. Framed for murder and reeling from attacks on his friends, Snow is pushed to his breaking point.

Jude Torres won’t let the doc shatter. The paramedic has been attracted to the doctor since he first laid eyes on him at the hospital, even if the arrogant, solitary man doesn’t fit into any of his plans. One hot, reckless kiss shows that Snow isn’t who he appears to be. And one night together will never be enough. Jude will fight for the doc.

Fight to keep him whole. Fight to keep him safe. Fight to simply keep him..


Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This book is about the outwardly cold Snow or Doctor Frost. Snow’s character was a bit dark at times but I understood given his background. What surprised me was Jude, a paramedic was able to get through his walls to the caring man inside.

Jude was a strong force to be reckoned with. He wants the good doctor and so he goes after the man. Snow does not what hits him. I found it awesome that despite Snows firm control he knew when to let Jude lead.

Snow is a man with deep issues that often result in him needing something out of the ordinary. I really felt for Snow. He seemed almost lost at times. His connection with Lucas, Ian and Rowe is strong. A bond that will never die. He protects his friends at all costs.

When a ghost from the past emerges into the present Snow throws himself into discovering where the man is and finding out what he wants. When the truth is revealed sinister does not even begin to cover it.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: It has been a few years since I read one of Shannon West’s books but when I saw the cover to this book it caught my attention. Then I read the blurb and damn if I wasn’t wanting to read it. It has a very unique and fresh story going on. I am not too sure of whether or not I like the guys but they are tempting.

Logan was special forces until he got into a fight and a man was killed. He wasn’t the one that killed him, but since his ass was drunk and he had no friends there, well you can guess what went down. He had three months left to serve when a very special group came calling.

Luke was a little harder to get a handle of. He was also in this group of black ops with no military truly backing them. He was trying to make the group stronger, but he really wasn’t getting very far with him. Lets face it the guys are asshats.

Then their first op blows up in their faces, and your going to just have to read the book on this one. It is a very fascinating story that is on the edge of your seat exciting. The problem is there are a few things missing in the story. It would have been nice to see their first interaction when Logan is taken to meet everyone. It was a bit harder to get into Luke’s life, but he was actually easier to like.

Other than my problems with the story, it caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a lot of fun reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book.

Blurb: Sebastian Stewart was never Mr. Dependable; he was more the good-time guy who only wanted to swim, party, and ink tattoos. Until he cost his team the Olympic gold four years ago. Bas is determined to do right this time around—by his medley relay team and his rookie mentee.

Jacob Burrows is in over his head. The Olympic experience—from the hazing, to the endless practices, to the unrelenting media—makes the shy nineteen-year-old’s head spin. He’s trying to be everything to everyone while trying not to fall for his gorgeous tattooed teammate who just gets him—gets his need to fix things, his dorky pirate quips, and his bisexuality.

When Jacob falters under the stress, threatening his individual races and the medley relay gold, he needs Bas’s help to escape from drowning. Bas, however, fearing a repeat of his mistakes four years ago, pushes Jacob away, sure he’ll only let Jacob down. But the only path to salvaging gold is for Jacob to finally ask for what he needs—the heart of the man he loves—and for Bas to become the dependable one.

Reviewer: Aerin

Review: Nothing gets a rise out of me more than a character who’s spending the better part of the book having a big ol’ pity party, and that’s exactly what Sebastian did. Why I never really saw this coming I’m still not sure, but the Bas we got in the first book was nothing like the Bas we got in Medley.

Medley picks up pretty much exactly where Relay stopped, and we see Jacob the newbie get his tattoo from Bas. I liked the chemistry between these two, their story was definitely a promising one; unfortunately Bas spent more time pushing Jacob away rather than setting the sheets on fire. Doesn’t the whole “trust me to know what’s good for you, and that’s not ME!” thing drive you completely CRAZY? Because towards the end there I wanted to rage like a lunatic!

I liked this book but I didn’t love it, for reasons stated above. That being said, I still loved the writing and I still believe Layla Reyne is a very talented new author. Can’t wait to read more from this author.

Amending Plans


C.M. Corett

Luc Weston is employed by his uncle as a cartographer. He’s an office dwelling creator of maps and plans, but as his uncle’s heir, he must learn all aspects of the company. Specifically, surveying. The upside—spending time with the gorgeous surveyor, Rick Masters, in a cozy cabin. The downside—the cabin is in the woods. Luc hates nature, and nature hates him. He’s got the injuries and bites to prove it. How can he impress Rick in such a foreign and hostile environment?

Rick Masters can’t believe he has to babysit the boss’s privileged nephew for two weeks. Come on, the man turned up for a mountain survey wearing skinny jeans and toting a suitcase on wheels. But Luc’s attitude and self-deprecating humor has surprised him. Perhaps he’s misjudged him? He’s nothing like the robust outdoorsmen Rick is usually attracted to, and yet…those skinny jeans sure hug him in all the right places. But Rick has a plan for his life, and a man like Luc Weston could never be part of it. No way!

Rubble And The Wreckage

(The Gabriel Church Tales 01)

Rodd Clark

Everything Crumbles

Gabriel Church knows you can’t take a life without first understanding just how feeble it is. If you desire murder, you hold a life in your hand. Whether you release it to grant life or grip tighter to end it, it is at your command and discretion.

Gabriel is a serial killer with a story to tell.

Christian Maxwell studied abnormal psychology in college but chose instead to focus on a career in writing. His background comes in handy when he thinks of writing about a serial killer. He can’t think of anyone more qualified to write the story of Gabriel Lee Church and in the murderer’s own words.

It’s been done before, but never with a killer who has yet to be captured or convicted. With nothing more than a gentleman’s understanding between them, Christian records Gabriel’s life story. Gabriel doesn’t ask for his complicity, nor does he ask for his silence. Christian’s interest in the man, though, is fast becoming something more than academic.

When Christian and Gabriel become unexpected friends and then lovers, the question remains: What is Gabriel’s endgame…and why does he want his story told?

Warning: Contains scenes of graphic violence, suggestion of child sexual abuse, on-page child physical abuse, use of derogatory language, homophobia

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wildfire collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

What is better then two sexy men getting it on, well you guessed it three. Welcome to a hot and tempting ménage. Max rescued Cory when he was a teenager and basically finished raising him. Cory had been abused by his father and needed a gentle hand. Which Max doesn’t really have. Things change for both of them and the explosion is about to hit. Then you add in one sexy millionaire who has had a taste of Cory, and things are going to heat up. To bad Max is closed off and Seoul has never been in love before. It is going to be an interesting run.

I wasn’t to sure about Cory and the guys at first. Just couldn’t figure out how he was going to get them all together but hey Lynn surprised me again. The heat and connection plus add in the passion and damn it was one sweet read. It wasn’t perfect but it ended pretty good. I can’t say this one would be my favorite of the series but it was still a good book.

I enjoyed reading this story and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. I also loved the danger and excitement, but really would have love to watch that beating jackal getting his just rewards. Guess will have to wait and see what happens. I had a lot of fun and can guarantee that you will too.

I would definitely recommend this book.

Wil and Dallin stand at the center of an approaching convergence they’re not sure they’re strong enough to face. The power of the land and the Mother waits for Wil in the bowels of Lind, but it comes at a price: he must defeat the soul-eater and save the Father, Her Beloved, and manage to keep his soul in the process. He can’t do it alone. But where can he turn for aid when friends are not necessarily friends, trusted mentors are not necessarily to be trusted, and good intentions are sometimes the most dangerous kind?

Dallin and Wil must accept their roles as the Guardian and the Aisling and stand together against a ruthless god in a cataclysmic battle of dreams and wills, the fates of both of their souls and those of all mortals hanging in the balance. Trust, if they can finally embrace it, holds both the promise of salvation and the risk of damnation.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: In this installment Wil and Dallin’s story goes deeper. Wil feels the mother abandoned him for centuries and as a result he does not trust her. For his part Dallin has sacrificed much to help Wil grow along with everything else on Dallin’s plate.

Yes Wil grows stronger and his knowledge expands. I liked that Wil grew up with Dallin’s guidance. This leaves them to the mission of rescuing the father. I enjoyed how this book ties everything up nicely in this trilogy.

The entire series was a journey of growing, understanding, sacrifice and love. Well written and intriguing this story draws you in and does not let go until the end.

Great read.

Blurb: Jon Erskine had made a good life for himself as one of the top Forensic Accounts and Systems Analysts in the country. He doesn’t mind working with paranormal clients – after all, he’s a shifter himself. However, he could do without all the slurs and derogatory comments. Not all shifters are wolves, bears and other predators. Still, his expertise and reputation is solid and Jon is more than capable of holding his own. That is until Dirk Hollingsworth runs from his office.

Dirk is running out of time. He has to find out who’s been stealing from his company before his father turns up for his wedding in three weeks’ time. Acting on the recommendation of a friend, Dirk turns to Jon, or at least thinks about it. That is, until he catches the man’s scent in the doorway of his office and does a runner. Not the proudest moment for one of the proudest of all shifters, but Dirk has a responsibility to his clan and catching the tantalizing scent of a dog isn’t going to change anything. Or so he thinks.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have always loved a good romance story, and paranormal romance’s are right up on top. Dragon’s have always been a favorite of mine and when an author comes out with a story, well I will usually grab it up. Lisa Oliver has been one of my favorite authors for quite some time, and I knew as soon as I found out she was the author that this would be a story I would want to read.

The story is fully developed and caught my attention from the start. There is so much depth to it and the characters are down right sexy. The worlds that this author created is very unique and makes you wish you were right there with them. The characters are a bit cranky and very quirky to say the least.

Jon is a german sheppard shifter, very smart and very loyal to those around him. He is one of the top investigator’s of his field. He is a forensic accounts and systemps analyst. People who are missing money come to him to find out where it went and who stole it. He works with many paranormal’s and even though they are not the nicest in the world, he does an amazing job for them. Shifters, or predator’s look down on him but he never lets it get him down. That is until his mate walks in, and then runs away.

Dirk is a dragon shifter and an ass. He is more worried about what his father thinks then he really should. They are missing money and he needs help. That is until he realizes that the man in front of him is his mate and a dog shifter, well and he is a man. Here he is set up to mate a female dragon of some wealth and he finds out he is mated to a man. So he runs like a coward. His dragon is going to kick his ass.

You have a strong-willed dragon who wants his mate. You have a family that is definitely not close and the betrayal is deadly. To top it off, he has a female who is up to no good and a father who is a bit crazy. Got to say that this story should be more than a five star rating and I can not wait till the next book comes out.

I had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend this book.

Zac Cinder is on the verge of making his dream come true. His punk rock band, Inferno, might have a shot at an audition for a record deal. Fame and fortune would mean he could finally help his parents. They’d raised eight kids in a loving household while barely scraping by, so Zac is determined to give back in any way he can.

Keeping Inferno together, though, means keeping his biggest secret. His bigoted bandmates would drop him in an instant if they found out Zac was gay.

Then he meets Adrian Frost, and Zac can’t resist the shy man. Adrian gives up everything to be with Zac, but Zac can’t bring himself to do the same. He doesn’t want to lose Adrian, but he can’t give up Inferno, either. Not when he’s so close to realizing his dream.

When one cruel decision rips Adrian from his life, Zac will have to decide if ambition is worth the price of the greatest happiness he’s ever known.

Flowers for the Gardener


Sharon Marie Bidwell

A warm-hearted rich man’s son, Richard Gardener needs to overcome three obstacles: find a way the family business can run without him, help his mother cope with grief, and stop butting heads — and other parts of his anatomy — with the gardener.

Ethan Fields has worked for the Gardener family for many years. He’s struggling with debt and the desire to leave, and has loved Richard far longer than the man would believe. Ethan can cope with most things, but his anger with Richard’s mother won’t fade. Until that and his feelings for Richard are resolved, he feels trapped and, alas, the idea that sex will get Richard out of his system isn’t working.

To make the situation worse, both men assume too much and don’t say the right words, and Ethan’s offer of ‘just sex’ grows more complicated by the day. Can Richard and Ethan stop getting their wires crossed before their paths diverge?

After years of research, he believes he has finally worked out how to get the spirit of his friend Jack back from Purgatory. All he has to do is summon a demon. It’s All Hallows’ Eve – what could possibly go wrong?  

When the demon Syron appears, things are not as they seem. For one thing, the attraction Robert feels is unusual and not entirely welcome. But that’s not the only thing he has to contend with. It seems Jack didn’t take his own life as he’d been told and when a visit to Syron’s home in hell turns ugly, Robert is forced to face the truths about his life, his family and most of all his attraction to Syron.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This story started out for a blog for another author, but Lee soon figured out that she had another idea for this story. It turned out pretty good for Halloween.

Robert is just a little messed up. His mother died, he had no clue who his father is and he is being raised by an evil aunt. The one boy who was his friend and whom he fell in love with, had committed suicide. He had no clue why but he knew he wanted to find out. His powers exceeded his aunt, and he soon learns there is a reason for it. So what does this smart young man do, he summons a demon.

Syron had been told many years ago who his mate was to be, but he never wanted to hurt or scare him, so he waited. He had not expected his mate to summon him, and to help him find out why his love committed suicide. Things are sounding complicated.

To top it off, the aunt is up to no good, and it is proving to be just a bit more dangerous then they thought. Now this is a pretty good story that I have read. I wasn’t to sure about it at first, but the story caught my attention from the start and kept it there. Now as for the guys, well Syron would be my favorite if I thought about it, but Robert is coming off a bit way to young. Although I saw why soon into the story.

I actually found myself smiling at parts of the story and truly enjoyed it. I felt bad for the kid he was thinking about, and damn that was one screwed up community. It doesn’t really give you a back ground as to the people or the place like I had hoped. It felt like it started a bit into the middle of the story. It just felt a bit strange in the beginning. Other than my issues, I would definitely see my self reading this more than once.

I would definitely recommend this book.

Wild Trail by A.M. Arthur

Title: Wild Trail

Series: Clean Slate Ranch 01

Author: A.M. Arthur

Genre: Western, Contemporary 

Length: Novel (384pgs)

Publisher: Carina Press (December 11, 2017)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: Welcome to Clean Slate Ranch: home of tight jeans, cowboy boots, and rough trails. For some men, it’s a fantasy come true.

Mack Garrett loves the rolling hills surrounding his Northern California dude ranch. Leading vacationers on horse trails with his two best friends is enough—romance is definitely not in the cards. When a sexy tourist shows up at Clean Slate, he’s as far from Mack’s type as can be. So why is the handsome city slicker so far under his skin in less than a day?

Roughing it in the middle of nowhere isn’t anywhere near Wes Bentley’s idea of fun. Then he lays eyes on the gruffest, hottest papa bear he’s ever seen. But Mack is as hard to pin down as he looks—distant, sharp-tongued, and in desperate need of a shave. Until a campout gone wrong strands both men in the mountains with nothing to do but get to know each other.

Mack intends to keep his closely guarded heart out of Wes’s very talented hands. But for a seven-day cowboy, Wes is packing some long-term possibility. The cold country air can do wonders for bringing bodies together—but it will take more than that to bridge the distance between two men whose lives are worlds apart.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Wes and Mack are two men who are out, have been hurt and vowed to never give their heart to anyone again. From the time these two meet there seems to be a spark and both have no qualms about a night of fun together.

As the story progresses circumstances throw them together to get to know one another. I loved the background on both as they each discover why the other has reservations about more than a one night stand. These despite a rocky start with a lot of flirting were hot together.

I loved both these characters and how they helped each heal their wounded hearts to take a chance again on love.

The only thing I did not like was it seemed drawn out more than it needed to be. Other than that it was a really good story.

Great read.

Mr. February by Bailey Bradford

Title: Mr. February

Series: Calendar Men 02

Author: Bailey Bradford

Genre: Contemporary, Paranormal

Length: Novella (96 pgs)

Publisher: Pride Publishing (6th February 2018)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: One cool cat is about to discover just how hot love can be.

Darin Winger is beginning to regret ever volunteering to be a model for the charity calendar. There’s already been an attack on all the people working on the photo shoot, which resulted in a nasty case of food poisoning for Darin and others. Then there was the fire at Marco’s place, which had resulted in the photographer being injured. To what extent, Darin doesn’t know, but now the photo shoot is back on, and Marco’s daughter Perry is in charge of everything.

Which would be fine, except the weather causes delays, people cause delays, almost everything causes delays—and Darin is ready to return to his regularly scheduled life as a nurse and dog shifter. If one more thing goes wrong…

The last straw might be the arrival of an uptight feline shifter named Arturo Casarez, who demands that Perry move the photo shoot off the grounds of the museum.

Except there’s something about Arturo that calls to Darin. Now he’ll have to convince Arturo to give him a chance.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: With one delay after another everyone is wondering whether or not the photo shoot will be completed. Darin is one such person. He is Mr. February and wants to get back to his life as soon as possible but with the way things are going it looks like it won’t be soon enough for tastes.

Arturo is the curator of the museum where the photo shoot is taking place for this particular month. But he is not amused when the models are prancing around in next to nothing with school children present and so offers to move the shoot to his land instead. Now the fun can begin.

Darin and Arturo are shifters of the canine and feline variety. Who says cats and dogs can not get along. These two certainly heat things up in this story. I liked this book better than the first which is weird because I usually love all Bailey Bradford’s books. But then again even I have off days when reviewing.

Highly recommended.
