Review of Playing with Fire: Dragons of the Darkblood Secret Society by Meg Ripley


“Meeting you was a wonderful, unexpected, fantastic surprise.”


Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 194 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

I’ve always done my best to work hard and stand apart from my father’s shadow, but it seemed like he was setting me up to fail. When he assigned me a new client, Adventure Isle–a run down amusement park in the middle of nowhere–I knew I’d have to find the investor of a lifetime to succeed. I was looking for a man with more money than sense. What I found was a man who had no money at all, but he did have a beautiful daughter, Shayne. A beautiful, ball-busting daughter that I wanted from the second I laid eyes on her. She controls his money, but she controlled my heart from just about the moment we met. She called herself Mary and I never had a chance. But just when I find myself in her bed, exactly where I want to be, she gets the call. Her father is dead; killed by a dragon. And things are about to get a whole lot more complicated when the woman of my dreams learns that I’m a dragon, too.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received an ARC of this book free from Red Lily Review Club in exchange for an honest review*

Jason isn’t sure if his father is setting him up for failure or if there’s a little sentiment left in the old man, either way he doesn’t want to fail. After seeing pictures of his mother at the amusement park he wanted to revitalize it, to bring it back to back to its glory with a bit of a modern twist. Mary, on the other hand, thought differently, and until she was on board then his plan was pretty much a simple pipe dream.

When Mary’s life is turned upside down and Jason only adds to the crazy she’ll pull away, but it doesn’t take long for the truth to come to light. She’ll realize not only had he not lied to her, but that her father wasn’t as batty as she once thought.

Playing with Fire is a fast paced love story with a little murder mystery suspense added in.

The part I didn’t like is that there are no chapters. Every time you see ***** just expect it to move forward.

My Favorite Moment is a little office rendezvous make-up visit.

Review of The Wolf Pack’s Revenge (Packs of the Pacific Northwest #3) by Meg Ripley


All Kinds of Happily Ever Afters


Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 150 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

The man who made me into a werewolf turned me into a cold-blooded killer, but he went too far the night he tried to force me to murder my own sister.

With his death, the bonds that tied me to him were broken, but I had no idea that my nightmare wasn’t over–or that the man of my dreams might find me when I least expected him. Noah Longtail might be everything I ever needed, but this handsome federal agent can either send me to hell or be the angel that saves my soul.

My only shot at redeeming myself and clearing my name is to turn state’s evidence. Stashed away in a safe house with only Noah for company, it’s all I can do to avoid the temptation of his chiseled body and perfect mouth. My only goal is to get through this with my life intact, but the Wolf Brotherhood won’t stop until all of the loose ends are tied up. That means I’m not safe. And neither is my sister.

They’ll stop at nothing to take us out, but I’m tired of being their victim. Those biker sonsabitches have no idea what’s about to hit them.

They’ve messed with the wrong bitch this time.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Book three merges Aiza, Noah, Seth, and Sera’s stories together.

It picks up right where Werewolf Baby Daddy left off… Aiza wakes up after the fight at the cabin to discover Dwight dead. She’s lost and running when Noah shows up offering a little kindness and hospitality.

Sera and Seth just want their happily ever after, but when a tragedy puts a hitch in their wedding plans and the brotherhood interferes with their family everyone will come furiously together to end them once and for all.

Aiza will take back what was once hers and she’ll finally open her heart to the one who truly owns it, Noah.

The Wolf Pack’s Revenge gives you a little more depth into the characters and is by far the best of the three. It ties up all the loose ends in a neat little box with a happily ever after bow on top.

Review of Werewolf Baby Daddy (Packs Of The Pacific Northwest #2)


Hot For The Werewolf


Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 120 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Sera Simpson’s fears become a reality when she learns that her sister Aiza has perished in a tragic accident. The case is quickly closed, but Sera’s instincts tell her that there is more to her sister’s untimely demise than meets the eye.

It turns out that Aiza had a strange connection to the Wolf Brotherhood, a local gang of criminal werewolves. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, Sera searches Portland for any clue that will shed light on the question. What she finds instead might be an even greater boon: Seth, a gorgeous wolf who wants to help her–in more ways than one.

Seth is also on the hunt for members of the Wolf Brotherhood after two of his pack mates have gone missing. When he suggests that he and Sera combine forces in their search efforts, neither could ever dream that it would be the spark that ignites the raging fire burning between them.

This werewolf unlocks her deepest desires and has the skill and prowess to make her forget all of her troubles with a single touch. He’s like a drug, and she finds herself craving more and more. He makes her head spin and her deliciously curvy body ache for his love, and after a lust-fueled night of passion, Sera becomes pregnant with his pup.

Sera isn’t going to give up her search for answers, though. With Seth’s help, she vows to get to the bottom of the mystery once and for all. But can they find the answers they seek before the Brotherhood finds them?

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Sera is Aiza’s sister and she’s comes to town because she thinks her sister’s ‘death’ was murder and not an accident. She wants to get to the bottom of it and not even her own safety will stop her.

Seth is in town looking for his missing pack mates when Sera literally stops him in his tracks. And by stops I mean she hits him with her car.

Deciding to work together since they’re both looking into the same brotherhood Sera and Seth become close…and fast. I mean it’s not title Werewolf Baby Daddy for nothing.

They discover the deceit Dwight told and that Aiza is still alive, but she wasn’t exactly dishing out the sisterly love. And with Sera having to worry about her own child now, she has to put herself first.

Prepared for the fallout but feeling it’s unlikely Seth will turn his focus to making an honest woman out of the one he loves. The rest we’ll have to discover in book three, The Wolf Pack’s Revenge.

Review of Claimed By The Wolf Brotherhood (Packs Of The Pacific Northwest #1) by Meg Ripley


Werewolf Rules…


Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 39 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Determined to make a name for herself, Aiza Simpson decides to purchase the neighborhood tavern that she’s been working at for years. When Portland’s nefarious werewolf biker pack, The Wolf Brotherhood, threatens to stake their claim on Aiza’s tavern, she vows to defend what’s rightfully hers—no matter the cost.

But Aiza might be biting off more than she can chew. Although she’s a tough wolf who can stand her own, she has no idea what dangers the Wolf Brotherhood have in store for her.

Her maker—and lover—Dwight is the only person she can turn to for help. There’s something about the fire in his touch that makes her troubles melt away; something about his alluring gaze that makes him irresistible, but Aiza isn’t sure that she can fully trust him—he is, after all, a member of the Wolf Brotherhood.

When Dwight conjures up a plan to stage her death and save her from the Brotherhood’s inevitably brutal wrath, Aiza resists at first, but quickly realizes that she’s all out of options.

Can Aiza trust him to protect her territory and save her life? Or is he only using her to further his own ambitions?

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is basically just an intro into the characters and storyline.

Aiza is a stubborn bar owner who doesn’t want to pay the brotherhood ‘for protection’. After two brotherhood bodies fall in her and Dwight’s wake she finds out her maker hadn’t been completely honest with her.

Dwight gives off major scumbag warning lights. He’s basically using Aiza as his own personal zombie bride and she doesn’t even know it thanks to the powers he has over her.

For such a short book it surprised me that the continuity is off. She’s naked from the transformation, but then he lifts her skirt, oh and then she’s naked again and discovers her clothes were shredded when she had to turn into a wolf. So how was there a skirt to lift?

There’s not a lot of depth to the characters so it’s difficult to care about any of them, but it’s the start of the series so hopefully it’ll get better.

It leaves off on a cliffhanger as Dwight turns Aiza against her own sister in order to save what’s left of his plans.
