Jake C. Wallace
Nineteen-year-old college student Levi Reed has spent his life with hollow emotions and a darkness so deep that he’s convinced he’s losing his mind. He’d give anything to feel something, anything, real.
When a mysterious stranger appears, Levi is convinced the man is trying to kill him. When he’s near, Levi experiences head-crushing pain and something surprising—real emotions for the first time. Jeb Monroe is arrogant, self-assured, closed-off, and handsome, but his isn’t the harbinger of doom Levi assumed. Jeb’s mission: help Levi find his missing soul.
Levi is pulled into the secret world of Seers and Keepers, those born with the innate abilities to manipulate souls and tasked with balancing the negative energy they can produce. Levi learns he possesses a rare gift, and he’s in danger. As Jeb and Levi grow closer, they discover a group of zealots who want to harness Levi’s power to cleanse the world of damaged souls. Everyone Levi cares for is threatened unless he agrees to become their tool of death. But agreeing could spell the destruction of humankind. With no one to trust and nothing as it appears, it’s up to Levi to save them all.
Title: Jerricho’s Freedom Series: N/A Author: JC Wallace Genre: Dark Fantasy / BDSM (Light) / Mpreg Length: Novel (431 pages) Publisher: Amber Quill Press, LLC (June 14th 2015) Heat Level: Explicit Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 4 ½ Hearts Blurb: Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did.
Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.
But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.
But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child…
Review: Wow. Just Wow. I never actually know what I will get when I start reading a book by JC Wallace. But I know one thing, I am in for one hell of a ride. Damn did this deliver.
Jerricho, aka Jerry is twenty-four years old and still a virgin. Due to the traditions of his people he will be marrying the man of his parents’ choice in less than a year. A man he has not met nor loves. Not that it really matters. Except it does. Jerry has fallen in love with human Rex.
I felt for Jerry. He has spent years rebelling in any way he can. But he knows that the time will come when he will have little choice. Finally after meeting his “finance” for the first time, Jerry makes a decision to at least lose his virginity the way he wants and with someone he cares about. And that opens a whole hell of a lot trouble for everyone.
This book went all over the place, but in a good way. There is so much going on. So many twists and turns. There is a lot to keep up on. Like who to trust, who is a bad guy? Those Jerry and Rex thought they could trust turn out to be their enemy. Those they know are enemies turn out to be unwilling victims. Everything was topsy-turvy.
And the sex. Damn, I did not see that hotness coming. Jerry and Rex together were not what I was thinking they would be. No, they are a hell of a lot more steamy than that.
JC Wallace has created an interesting, unique, and intriguing world. The history of the Anzuni is a definite new spin on the demon myth.
The characters are well-developed, not just Jerry and Rex, but also the secondaries. For such a long book it was still very fast paced.
I found myself drawn into the story from the start and could not put it down until the very end. I needed to know what would happen next. Would they escape, would they be rescued, who would turn into an ally or enemy next? These were all things I would ask I was read.
Now I really hope there is a follow-up, because there are some situations left open-ended, that I would like to see explored and resolved.
This rollercoaster ride is well worth the read.

Title: Curiosity Killed Shaney Series: N/A Author: J.C. Wallace Genre: Paranormal Length: Novel (238 pages) Publisher: The Rooster & The Pig Publishing (March 14, 2014) Heat Level: Moderate Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts Blurb: Shaney’s curiosity is always getting him into trouble, including stumbling into a ritualistic circle and being imbued with an energy that will eventually tear him apart. He soon finds out that Hudson, a man he cares for deeply, might be responsible for his misfortune. Add in the betrayal by his best friend Todd and the desire of a demented occultist named Silas to control the energy inside of him and there seems to be no way out. Can Shaney find a way to rid his body of the nefarious energy before he dies a horrible death?
Shorty’s Review: When I first started reading this book, I didn’t know what to expect, as I didn’t read the description of the book first. I was sucked into the story from the start. Shaney was just so sweet, and Hudson was just hot.
I couldn’t hardly put the book down to eat or sleep. Very riveting plot, characters, details, etc, etc. How JC managed to mix Romantic Comedy with Horror, I don’t know, but he did an excellent job. I certainly hope J.C. Wallace writes more books to this one as I will most certainly buy them. It was the best story I’ve read in a while. Never read anything like it before. Wonderfully written.
I would recommend this to everyone. Awesome job J.C. Wallace!!! 🙂
Pixie’s Review: Oh Shaney, how you actually managed to live to be nineteen is a mystery. With disaster following close on your heels, every day is a new adventure as your curiosity gets the better of you. Shaney really is a disaster waiting to happen and the first time he meets Hudson he ends up in the emergency room and then throws up all over the sexy carpenter’s feet. Now Shaney will have to work closely with Hudson (community service hours… Shane’s curiosity struck again) but it leads to Shaney stumbling across a ritualistic circle that will change Shaney’s life forever. As Shaney struggles with what happened, his best friend Todd tries to help but Shaney thinks he was betrayed (well, being kidnapped and drugged does that to a guy), and he discovers Hudson knows more than he let on.
Well this is truly a wild ride as things come to a head and Shaney, Todd, Hudson, Caleb and Max have to fight the mad occultist (Silas) who started the events 20 years before. This really is a great story with brilliant characters, the writing flows smoothly and you never lose track of what is happening. We discover that while Shaney’s curiosity is a natural occurrence some of the outcomes were caused by something else altogether, something that will have huge repercussions if Shaney doesn’t learn to harness it. Hudson and Shaney’s relationship has some very rocky moments but their feelings for each other are true. Todd, Caleb, and Max are great supporting characters who each play a great part in this story; they have you wondering at times… just whose side are they on?
I thought this story was brilliant, we have quirky Shaney who ends up having some major family drama and we have steady Hudson who has spent his time trying to stay away from the occult but gets dragged in anyway, then we have the supporting cast who are a hodgepodge of men who make this story zing. This story is well written and it holds your attention right from the start with the antics of Shaney and friends and it is filled with a great blend of humor and paranormal, there’s action and danger, some betrayal and twists, a deep seated secret and a rocky romance… what more could we ask for? Hmmm, maybe there could be a hint for a future story for two of the supporting characters, I hope so!
I recommend this to those who love a great paranormal story that has humor laced throughout, a hot relationship that has plenty of ups and downs, fantastic supporting characters and great storyline and a brilliant ending.
