Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the second book in the series with Tom and Lucan as the MC’s.

I was blown away by the detailed explanations regarding clues about Tom’s heritage and the aspects leading up to his role in the events. The twists and turns just kept coming as I was immersed in a world where magic, knights, creatures and evil plots were front and center.

Lucan for his part kept Tom at arms length and as such Tom suffered and was taken at least once during the story. But Lucan always went to the rescue.

Tom is sweet yet determined to play his part no matter the risks. I found his ability intriguing and fascinating.

I am looking forward to reading more about the knights and seeing what happens when they find their other halves.

This is a magical story that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Fantastic read.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Past and present collide in this astonishing new series as Mel learns this more out there than he knew. Lancelot saves the young man when he’s attacked by a vile evil monster. This sets in motion the two learning about each other and each facing difficult decisions while at the same time fighting their attraction.

I loved the plot and the way it slowly revealed different snippets of what was in the past while explaining what happened and why. Lance and his fellow knights Kay, Lucan, Ali, and Gawain have lived a long life battling an evil that overtook Camelot a thousand years ago and still battles them in the present. Merlin is a key player who made the knights immortal with an exception that they find the other half of their soul. If this person dies then so to will the knight.

There is so much that happens to make this an epic story with fabulous twists and turns that enable a slow understanding of what is going on and who exactly are the good and guys. There is a great cast of characters that bring the story to life and dangerous situations that have you on the edge on your seat as you are immersed in a story where the good struggle against insurmountable odds.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Former helicopter pilot Maverick Delgardo’s injuries ended his Air Force career, leaving him bit-ter and one drink away from becoming an alcoholic. When his sister asks for his help on a pri-vate protection case to babysit a disgraced pop star, Mav reluctantly agrees.

Deacon Daniels, onetime lead singer and idol to his teenage fans, saw his career and reputation ruined when a reporter’s exposé led to a devastating scandal. Without money or a job, a heart-broken Deacon has lost custody of his baby niece. And just when Deacon thinks his life can’t get any worse, a stalker’s threatening messages escalate to murder.

Mav only agreed to one meeting, but his protective instincts kick in, along with an attraction to Deacon. When the body count increases, however, Mav is unsure he is up to the task of pro-tecting Deacon from a killer. But it is too late for Mav to step away, now that he’s lost his heart, and he must find the strength to reassure Deacon and his niece that they are in safe hands no matter the cost.

Review: In Safe Hands is a standalone novel by Victoria Sue, with the audio narration performed by Michael Pauley. Both the author and the narrator are people whose work I know and am aware of, although I couldn’t tell you anything from the top of my head. Honestly, I was just intrigued by the blurb. I was sucked in by a down on his luck celebrity, a cute kid and a tough former Air Force helicopter pilot turned bodyguard. If that’s the type of thing you like as a reader, then I don’t think you got anything to lose by giving this one a go.

Michael Pauley’s narration is great. I really enjoyed listening to him perform this story. I can’t really single anything in particular out, it was overall a very enjoyable listen. I do think that this is the type of book that I would enjoy less if I read because of the emotion and tone given to the reader by the narrator.

The story itself was good. I really did like it, but I think that there were times where it felt a tad bit flat. While I enjoyed the chemistry and interactions between the two MCs, I felt that there were times where I just wanted them to get their shit together. Yet, I also found the MCs really interesting, I loved their individuals flaws and challenges that they have to face, this definitely made for a more enjoyable story.

The story starts with former Air Force pilot Maverick Delgardo. He suffered injuries which ended his career in the Air Force, leaving him scarred and also suffering PTSD. From a long hospital stay and rehab he has had a difficult time adjusting to life outside of the military. He finds himself languishing in his sister’s basement, medicating himself with alcohol to deal with his PTSD. However, his sister, who is an ex-cop and now runs her own business (she has a complicated back story too), wants to bring Mav in (as they had originally planned some time ago) to act as private security. Through her connections, they have been requested to provide security for a celebrity, who has seen his fame decline and reputation ruined from circumstances beyond his control.

That celebrity is Deacon Daniels. And not only has the scandal destroyed his life, leaving him with no money, no job to make money and also in danger of losing his home and all his belongings. Perhaps the worst of it is, it has also led him to losing custody of orphaned his baby niece, who he adores with all his heart. It is absolutely heart breaking when he tries to hide the fact that losing her has hurt him more than he lets on at first.

Mav had been ready to meet the guy and turn him away. An instant attraction and his instincts for danger has him looking into the case more. However, as the guys get to know each other, the attraction gives way to genuine affection. Mav has to get his broken self together so that he can help Deacon find out who is stalking him and get custody of his niece.

Blurb: All Vance Connelly ever wanted to do was continue his family’s tradition and join the Tampa Po-lice Department, but his dreams were crushed the day he woke with the enhanced mark on his face. After years of struggling to adjust to life as an enhanced human, by a stroke of luck, he met Talon Valdez and became a proud member of the FBI’s Human Enhanced Rescue Organi-zation.

Samuel “Angel” Piper is eager to leave his DEA undercover work behind as he joins the HERO team as Vance’s regular human partner. But Sam’s painful past is ever present, just below the surface of the life he has built for himself as an ambitious young agent. When the team investi-gates rumors of a new drug using enhanced blood, the case’s mysterious connection to Sam threatens not just his life but Vance’s.

Trust doesn’t come easy for Sam, but Vance is willing to fight to convince his partner that the strength of his heart might be the salvation they both need.

Review: Strength of His Heart is book 4 of Victoria Sue’s series, Enhanced.

Before I started this audio, I hadn’t realised that I hadn’t realised it was a series, but a couple chapters in when it finally clicked to me, I was too invested to stop and get to the other three stories. I was able to follow the plot without any problem, although I am sure that I missed some points when it came to some of the background characters, they were well developed and fleshed out by this point in the series, but again, nothing that I couldn’t piece together in my head.

This book is the first book I’ve read/listened to by the author, so I had no idea what to expect in terms of the writing and the depth of the world that had been created. However, I am very familiar with the work of Nick J Russo, the narrator. Normally, I have heard him perform contemporary books and I have found that he is well suited. But this book is best described as an urban fantasy. I was totally blown away by how well he narrated the story and conveyed the complex emotions of the MCs. Both MCs are tough, alpha type of males, however, one is a gentle giant and the other is a scrappy guy.

The series is called Enhanced after a group of people in the world who have been ridiculed and discriminated against because the men (because it’s only men) that are “Enhanced”, known for the scar on their face after transformation, develop powers which the rest of humanity can’t understand. I suppose it’s a kind of parallel to the LGBTQI community. I’m not explaining the enhanced very well, but basically think of Marvel’s X-Men but it’s only men. Some enhanced can mind speak, some have super strength, some have healing – you get the point.

Vance and Sam are partners in a special FBI taskforce. It aims to team up human and enhanced partners in order to show the world that the enhanced aren’t monsters to be scared of.

Sam is ex-DEA (and has a past which is revealed through the story) but soon after partnering with Vance on the FBI team is back helping the DEA for another mission. Sam was good at his job in the DEA but he wanted so much more. He wanted to be in the FBI and didn’t want to be dragged back into the DEA. He has been used of protecting himself and being pushed around by people bigger than him, so when he is teamed up with Vance, despite sexual attraction, Sam isn’t going to let Vance take control.

Vance has always wanted to be a cop – it’s in his family to serve in the Tampa PD, his father is now the lieutenant, one of his brothers is also a cop, while another is also with the FBI. But Vance always wanted to be a cop, a choice that was taken away from him when he woke up as a teen, enhanced and with the scar to prove. While his parents and siblings have always been supportive of Vance, there are many opportunities and people in the world that do not think of him as human because of his abilities. The man has such a big heart and all he wants to do is help people.

Vance is a very sweet man and extremely vulnerable under his tough exterior, while Sam is tough and knows only how to keep up shields to keep himself safe from any kind of affection. There is an attraction between the two men, but with the danger of their ongoing case which involves drugs and added is the mystery of how enhanced have been dragged into the situation, things are often left on hold. As the danger increases the feelings also increase and Sam can’t help but keep putting his foot in his mouth to protect himself. Which, honestly, had me a tad emotional for poor Vance who wears his heart on his sleeve.

I absolutely adored this book. The chemistry between Sam and Vance is on point, their emotions are complex but relatable. The secondary character, some of whom have already had their own book in the series, are equally as deep and complex as Sam and Vance, even the two guys who have been set up to be the next couple of the series. The world that Sue has created is an adventure from start to finish. Now, I need to go back to the start of this series and find out about the other guys!

Blurb: He can’t save everyone…

Firefighter Lucas Attiker is mired in guilt by his inability to save his young son, who perished in a fire three years ago. When he rescues a troubled young man and his baby daughter from a Colorado forest fire, Lucas finally begins to forgive himself. But the wildfire is only the beginning of the dangers facing them.

Hell-bent on saving his daughter from his crime boss ex, Owen Michaels is on the run with the baby in tow—fleeing both the killers who are after him and the US Marshals Service deputies assigned to protect him. When his desperate flight lands them in the midst of an inferno, the man who saves them offers hope for more than just survival.

They might have escaped a blazing forest and a hail of bullets, but both men will need to risk their lives—and their hearts—to give a little girl a loving family… if they can make it out alive.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Lucas is a firefighter used to running headlong into danger to save those trapped in a fire. When a raging inferno spreads to a supposedly uninhabited area he and his crew are tasked with making sure no one is there. Owen and his daughter Mia are on the run from the man who desperately wants them back. Federal agencies are also looking for them so Owen can testify against the man looking for him.

One life saving encounter follows both men on the run for their lives as Lucas tries to keep Owen and Mia safe. I loved this story. There were dangerous situations around every corner. Shootouts galore as Owen and Lucas stay on the move. Corruption and a double cross I never saw coming led to one amazing read that had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish.

I don’t know what else I can say without giving too much away. Read the book you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Review: Such a bittersweet story with love, heartbreak and a HEA. I loved Ben and Mischa. Mischa has been through so much. Ben for his part believes what his father says and thinks the worst of Mischa after so many years apart.

Such a beautifully written story. I felt for both Ben and Mischa and the wasted time they could have had. Mischa was strong in his resolve to not let Ben’s father bully him into anything. He was my hero in the story.

Fantastic read.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved Mav and Deacon. Both characters are broken in different ways. But they ultimately help each other overcome their struggles. Mav is tough yet suffering from the traumatic event from his military days. Deacon has had his life turned upside down by malicious rumors and now on top of that a real stalker hell bent on destroying everything left of Deacon’s life.

Mav is hired to protect Deacon even though Mav has struggles of his own. The cops do not believe Deacon has a stalker until bodies start piling up and then they suspect him of the crimes until the stalker hits closer to home.

The story had me on the edge of my seat. I suspected the reason for the stalker early on but who the stalker was came as a shock. I love being surprised in a story.

The vivid descriptions of the murders are brutal in their intensity. There are tense situations between Deacon and his mom as well as between the stalker and his victims.

Fast paced with plenty of suspense, action, twists and turns to make for one amazing story to the end.

Fantastic read. Highly recommended.

Blurb: Thrown out and thrown away.

Lorne Austen—on the very day his alpha’s youngest children were fifteen—was told to pack his bags and leave the only real home he had ever known. Heartbroken and alone he takes shelter from the snowstorm with other stranded travelers, miles away from the family he had always considered his.

Doctor Jonathan Owens has personal reasons for never wanting to mate an omega, but all his good intentions are tested to the limit when he meets Lorne. After spending the night together he is devastated to find Lorne has vanished without a trace.

Soon enough, Lorne discovers the impossible has happened and he is pregnant. But the law says unmated omegas cannot keep the babies they give birth to. Eventually, realizing something is badly wrong with his pregnancy, he goes to the clinic and comes face to face with Jonathan again.

All Lorne has wanted is a family he won’t lose. Jonathan has spent years making sure he never needed one. Faced with the real danger that the babies won’t even survive long enough to be born, can these two find love and the strength they need in each other or will their differences always pull them apart?

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I absolutely loved this story about Johnathan and Lorne. Lorne’s situation broke my heart yet at the same time I had hope for these two. I realize Lorne was leery of trusting anyone but he should have asked Johnathan about certain things instead of just believing a conniving woman’s word.

These two struggle with a dangerous pregnancy as well as those who would cause trouble between them. Still it was a wonderful story of hope and love in a world where doubts are prevalent. I do want to know more about Cal and Shay and how their lives turn out considering their situations.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Oh my god this story was so good. You have Vance and Sam who are partnered in the Enhanced team. Both men have issues that are similar but yet different. They are on a case of drugs being used with enhanced blood. An undercover mission reveals sinister goings on and it’s up to the team to stop it. Sam sends Vance mixed signals due to his past and his hang up with large guys which is to be expected. Vance is a gentle giant and understanding.

This series just keeps getting better and better the further along it continues. I love how each investigation is well thought out and written. New and old characters are always intertwined with twists and turns that have edge of your seat, nail biting results with action scenes that have you holding your breath awaiting the outcome.

It’s one of my favorite series to date as I simply adore the enhanced in this series. I am so looking forward to reading more especially with the way this story ended.

Review: I loved this story about Bo and Gabe. It was tender, sweet and emotional from the get go. Gabe was patient with Bo as the two got to know one another. But, Gabe didn’t express himself well from time to time which caused misunderstandings on Bo’s part.

I loved how Gabe tried his best with Bo despite sometimes not knowing what to do. Bo had problems in the fact that sometimes he assumed things instead of just asking. But still it was a cute holiday story filled with happiness and a happily ever after.

Blurb: Gael Peterson has spent years hiding behind the enhanced abilities he wears like a mask, even though he is an important, confident member of the FBI’s exclusive H.E.R.O. team. The hurt and betrayal of his mom’s abandonment and his father’s fists are secrets buried deep beneath the ugly scars on his face, and he doesn’t trust Jake, his new, regular human partner, with any of them. In a world where those with special abilities like Gael’s are regarded as freaks and monsters, it won’t be easy for him to rely on Jake to have his back, especially when the abilities of a vulnerable, nonspeaking, enhanced child make that child a murder suspect.

Tempers rise, and loyalties are challenged, and when the serial killer targeting the enhanced finally sets his sights on Gael, not only will Gael have to trust Jake with his secrets, he might have to trust him to save his life.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: Oh my god! I totally lurve the great big strong damaged hero with a super soft heart and the need to be dominated. I now think Gael is my favorite Enhanced World character. Scarred, damaged, big tough man on the outside…..I just want to hug him and squeeze him and make him my own. But alas, we need a good match for Jake. Jake, the ever patient. Victoria has shown us her softer side, her lovey dovey underbelly, and then she throws us into the mire with a serial killer!

As for the love scenes, oh yeah, that big tough guy goes down hard and begs for it, Jake is ready to give him everything he needs. Yeah…let me get some ice water…..

Once again, good mystery, lots of action, a bit of gory goodness, and lots of tears and melty hearts.

I knew it…figured it out in the first few minutes….but the web was well spun anyhow. I enjoyed figuring out how all the pieces fit together for the unsub. I also enjoyed the super ooey-gooey lovable ending to Gael and Jake’s story. I may need to see the dentist now.

I love this entire series, and I am always impressed with Nick J Russ’s narration…..the man has mad skills!

Finn has no choice but to offer himself as bait for the evil forces kidnapping enhanced children, facing danger he is untrained and unprepared for, and he will have to do it alone.

Does Talon have one last fight in him? Will he slay everyone who wants to destroy Finn and the team, or will he finally discover that to defeat their enemy and the ultimate threat, the biggest battle he has to face is one with himself?

Product Link: Audible US | Audible UK | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: We now have a tighter team with the H.E.R.O’s of the Enhanced World. But as Finn fights to carry his own weight with the team, Talon fights against his own fears and constantly jumps in to protect him. You can imagine where this puts strain on a newly formed relationship.

What I enjoyed about this book the most was seeing Finn develop stronger friendships with other team members. The author gives us a broader picture of not just Talon but Vance, Gael, Sawyer and others.

There’s a mystery, action, detective work, missing kids, and plenty of tension both sexual and emotional between Finn and Talon again. We learn more about different team member’s enhanced abilities and that Talon’s is changing, and he’s uncertain about his own control over it. When the story comes to it’s climax we’ll find out if Talon is truly as strong as Finn believes him to be. Talon will have to learn to give all his trust to the love of his life, his very life depends on it.

Victoria Sue also does sexy-times with flair and plenty of passion. I’m never disappointed, though I could always beg for more.

Nick Russo’s narration is smooth, varied voices for each character, and has great emotional attributes throughout. Did I mention I REALLY like his vocal characterization of Talon. Mmmm-mmmm, good!

If you enjoy the X-Men/Thirds kind of world building you’ll love Five Minutes Longer and the entire Enhanced World series by Victoria Sue! Hold on tight, you’re in for a ride and an all-nighter!

Blurb: Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency.

Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.

Finn Mayer dreamed of joining the FBI from the time he was fourteen and made every possible sacrifice to make it happen, including living with his selfish mother and bullying, homophobic brother and never having a boyfriend. But his undiagnosed dyslexia stopped his aspirations dead in their tracks. His last chance is to partner with Talon, an enhanced with deadly abilities who doesn’t trust regular humans with their secrets and wants Finn to fail.

Four weeks to prove himself to the team. Four weeks for the team to prove itself to the public. And when another group threatens their success—and their lives—four weeks for them to survive.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: I really wanted to hate Talon. The team got on my nerves and I felt the anxiety Finn carried on his shoulders as he charged bravely into the unknown world of this new enforcement agency, mixing the worlds of the enhanced and regular humans like himself. These tensions are exactly what Victoria Sue wants to build up in us while we read and listen to her beautifully spun story. When those tensions do finally burst, flames erupt, physically and metaphorically. Action packed, all emotions, and sizzling hot sexual encounters build this loose knit team of talented if frustrating hooligans into a functional team of heroes with strong bonds.

Nick Russo’s narration is great. I really like the voice he has for Talon..mmmmmm, so fine! Narration is smooth, varied, and has great emotional attributes throughout.

If you enjoy the X-Men/Thirds kind of world building you’ll love Five Minutes Longer and the entire Enhanced World series by Victoria Sue! Hold on tight, you’re in for a ride and an all-nighter!

Review: Gray is hired to protect Sebastian. What starts out as job slowly turns into something more. Sebastian’s enhanced power was stunning to witness. I loved the slow burn between the two as the story progressed.

This story is not as intense as the other stories in the enhanced series but it still packs a punch. Seb is self conscience and reclusive. He doesn’t trust anyone. The experiments he is put through are mind boggling. I admit I felt his dad was extremely unemotional to the wants of Seb.

My heart went out to Seb as he struggled for his independence against family and a system that gives enhanced no rights. Gray was a rock for Seb when he needed it the most.

Great read.

Blurb: The Askaran desert can no longer sustain the secret hybrid population of wolves bred from those sent there to die for their crimes. Justice knows the time has come to lead his wolves to a new life, but soon realizes his pack could never be governed by nor swear fealty to the cruel and despotic Alpha of Solonara—Darius—so he hatches a plan to fight and ultimately kill the Alpha, his heir, and take over the territory.

Cashel should not exist. It was unheard of for an Alpha-heir to be born an omega, and Darius has made every day a torment for his son. After spending years failing to breed another heir, and desperate not to have to give his territory away to another pack, he finally turns his attention back to Cashel and a whole new nightmare begins.

Justice’s whole life has been about righting a wrong and delivering the very thing he was named for. Meeting Cashel, and finding out he is his true mate, sends his carefully constructed plans and promises up in flames. When he discovers Darius’s cruelty runs deeper than any of them imagined, he is faced with a last desperate choice between his love for Cashel or his loyalty to his people.

Review: Oh my was this book so good. Cashel’s whole life has been one thing after another in abuse.Cashel has been used and abused by Darius for his own gain. Once he meets Justice, an alpha that arrives for the new games for the right to be with him Cashel knows he wants more out of life.

Justice’ mission is to take out the alpha and the heir until he meets Cashel and discovers he is so much more. But Darius is devious and wants nothing more to be the supreme ruler and takes out anyone who endangers that.

Drama, suspense, action and edge of your seat worthy scenes made for an awesome read that grabs you from beginning to end and then some. I am impressed with how well this story is overall.

I loved it and highly recommend it.

Blurb: Man and wolf. Sworn enemies in the battle for Askara. Can hate and betrayal ever lead to love?

Caleb Harken has spent six years wrongfully imprisoned for his father’s treachery. Tortured and reviled by the very wolf pack he should have been leading as Alpha, he is not surprised to learn he’s finally to meet his death at the hands of the human rebel leader, Taegan Callan.

Taegan gave up his dreams of a life-mate and a family after seeing too many humans butchered at the hands of the wolves—even if Caleb doesn’t seem to be the bloodthirsty savage he expects, and even if he starts to long for a different kind of future with the wolf.

Can Caleb become the Alpha he was always meant to be and lead his pack, or will he finally realize that winning his freedom means nothing when he has already lost his heart?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I waited days to write this review and still can not figure out what to say. Why? Because it was that good and went in a direction I was not expecting after having read the first book. The first thing I loved was that an Alpha was the one suffering. Not that I mean I want to hear of anyone suffering but that usually in books it’s an omega.

Caleb in my opinion was strong despite the abuse heaped on him. It incensed me that he was treated that way at all due to what his father did and not him. I literally hated those who sought to take from him for their own gains.

Teagan was understandably leery of Caleb. His treatment of him was cruel at first. But once things came to light all that changed. Caleb and Teagan were a formidable couple.

I love this series despite it’s darkness at times. Highly recommended.

Blurb: Gael Peterson has spent years hiding behind the enhanced abilities he wears like a mask, even though he is an important, confident member of the FBI’s exclusive H.E.R.O. team. The hurt and betrayal of his mom’s abandonment and his father’s fists are secrets buried deep beneath the ugly scars on his face, and he doesn’t trust Jake, his new regular human partner, with any of them. In a world where those with special abilities like Gael’s are regarded as freaks and monsters, it won’t be easy for him to rely on Jake to have his back, especially when the abilities of a vulnerable nonspeaking enhanced child make that child a murder suspect.

Tempers rise and loyalties are challenged, and when the serial killer targeting the enhanced finally sets his sights on Gael, not only will Gael have to trust Jake with his secrets, he might have to trust him to save his life.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Gael, an enhanced, gets a new human partner, Jake. These two definitely get off to a rocky start but when they are tasked with finding a killer of enhanced individuals they become closer even though they are no longer partners.

I found this story to be awesome. I loved that despite their fears these eventually opened up to the other which was a good thing because one of them may not survive the clutches of a killer. The killer I had figured out before I was told as some things threw up warning bells as the story progressed.

Jake was determined to help Gael as much as he could and when he was in Danger it was Jake that lead the rescue. It broke my heart at what these two have endured in their lives especially Gael. But they helped the other overcome and move on.

Derrick was adorable. I loved that Gael was able to communicate with him when no one else could. This is a fantastic addition to the series. Filled with mystery, suspense and heart stopping scenes this story will have you on the edge of your seat.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
