Review of Get Revenge (Blood Legion MC #4) by Rie Warren

“…futile fornication.” 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, MC Romance, Suspense

Length: 321 Pages

POV: Alternating Person

Description:

A second chance biker romance that’ll set your Kindle on fire! The final book in the bestselling Blood Legion MC biker series.

He made sure she’d never come looking for him. She vowed to hate him until her dying breath. When they meet again sparks fly, lust ignites . . . danger doubles down.

REVENGE
I’m a bad biker dude with a serious chip on my shoulder. I’m also known for being an ex-con and most likely to be engaged in a spicy threesome with the Doublemint Twins. Everything comes to a screeching halt when a gorgeous woman I made sure to leave behind shows up at Blood Legion MC.

There’s no frickin’ way Arden high and mighty Prioleau belongs anywhere near the Thunder Road Bar. There’s no frigging reason for her to be looking for me. She’s cool, calm, and cultured on the outside, all seething anger and undeniable sexiness on the inside.

Arden is a glorious redhaired vixen with one giant ask—she wants my help to take down a man I’d rather dismember than share a drink with.

ARDEN
Revenge isn’t even his real name, but he doesn’t want anyone else to know who he really is. I guess I can’t blame him. I wish I could change my identity too if only to get away from the maniac destroying my life.

Revenge is the last person on earth I’d ever expect to rely on. He’s my last chance. My final hope. And that isn’t saying all that much considering how we ended.

I used to know him, now I’m not so sure what I’ve gotten myself into. Revenge is hardened and even hotter than I remembered. He’s a black sheep with a checkered past. A dark horse who’s dirty as sin.

It turns out my knight in shining armor is a leather-clad biker I’ve known most of my life and have spent the past few years hating with a fiery intensity.

BLOOD LEGION MC:
Cry Mercy
Save Grace
No Saint
Get Revenge

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Arden hadn’t lived the life she’d expected to. No one deserved the treatment she endured to survive and keep her daughter safe. But when she seeks help from the one man who never left her heart everything will change.

Revenge isn’t the man his MC brothers thought him to be, but he ruined his once pristine past. Now he wants it back. Or at least part of it. He want’s Arden, the one woman who never left his thoughts. What he wasn’t expecting is her daughter (the one with undeniable eyes).

His entire world will change. So will theirs. But when it’s filled with the kind of love you can find at the Blood Legion MC then nothing can possibly be better. That is once loose ends are tied up.

“You’re mine. Don’t you even try to deny that. No matter what and no matter when, you are mine and Aimee is too.”

Sad to see the Blood Legion MC series over, but excited to see what is next from the intriguing Rie Warren. As with it predecessors, Get Revenge, was a perfect blend of MC style action, humor, heart, and sizzling heat.

Oh and I absolutely loved Aimee’s Christmas wish!

Review of The Enforcer (Fire’s Edge #3) by Abigail Owen

“Make me yours. Even if it only lasts today.” 

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense, Shifters

Length: 325 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person

Description:

Death comes for everyone. Even Drake Chandali. The aging process that twists all unmated dragon shifters’ bodies into something useless has taken hold of his body centuries early. A mate could have reversed the process, but now it’s too late. To protect his team of enforcers, he leaves, and comes face to face with the woman he’d thought was human when he saved her from a fire months before.

Except she’s not human. She’s a mate.

Camilla Carrillo almost lost her family to wildfire. To discover she’s fated to mate a creature made of flame and rage, and become one herself, should be terrifying. But somehow a rightness settles inside her, especially when she’s around the glowering red dragon shifter who wants nothing to do with her.

When Drake learns Cami bears his mark — the same mark as the High King — he refuses to believe she’s meant to be his. It’s too late. How could he turn Cami only to take her with him to the grave? At the same time, he can’t walk away. Hiding her from the corrupt, rotting High King might be the last honorable thing Drake ever does with the little time he has left.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from NetGalley on behalf of the author and Entangled Publishing.*

I’m pretty sure that The Enforcer is my favorite Fire’s Edge book.

Drake saves several humans trying to flee a farm with no way out, but instead of them freaking out (like most people who’d see a real life dragon would) one girl attempts to defend her family from this monstrous creature. He’s so enthralled by her that once they’re safe he shifts into his human form and that’s when they both feel it…that special draw to one another, but she shows no signs of being a dragon mate so he writes it off, wipers her and her family’s memories, and doesn’t look back.

Cami on the other hand starts sparking fires. Luckily Rune showed up and offered her a safe haven since the last thing she needed was to finish burning down the rest of the family farm; it’s not as if there was much left anyhow.

“I’ll make you a deal. I’ll be silent if you can smile and say thank you.”

Drake, which we learned in the previous book, has health issues. He’s gone too long without a mate and he’s deteriorating quickly. So quickly that he decides to leave his team and crawl off to Rune’s to die. But who is there to greet him…Cami.

Cami doesn’t have a memory of him, but she knows she’s drawn to him. Drake won’t risk his failing health killing a potential mate. And there in lies the best part of the story. He’s crabby. She’s determined. Their chemistry pulled me in and I could not put the book down.

“Don’t you see? I’d rather die with you than live without you.”

Abigail’s writing is amazing as ever and the storyline completely captivating. I cannot wait to see what comes next in the Fire’s Edge series. One day maybe even all the couples will reunite. One can hope at least.

Review of The First to Fall (Fallen #1) by Tanisha D. Jones

“Be good or be good at it.” 

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense

Length: 309 Pages

POV: Third Person

Description:

Romance set in New Orleans. The First to Fall is the first novel in the Fallen series.
When the body of rock star Nicky Sky turns up missing, detective Elijah Cain is on the case, until the case is ripped out from under him by some powerful higher ups. But Elijah knows Nicky’s body wasn’t stolen – Eli’s telepathic vision showed him that the dead man exited his coffin and walked out all on his own. And so Eli enters the world of New Orleans paranormals with the help of Nicky’s childhood friend Dr. C. Keegan Kent, an intriguing woman with secrets of her own. She draws Eli like no other woman, but their connection runs deeper than Eli imagines and one that could put them both in jeopardy.

With the Collective on the hunt for Nicky and his maker, an unknown entity who turned Nicky against his will, Eli and the Doc team up to protect Nicky and find the malevolent creature who sired him. But this chase puts them on a collision course with their destiny, or their destruction.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

The First to Fall is about the first angel to fall from Heaven when it split from the Earth. It puts a new spin on creatures of the dark, each with the abilities to match their amplified personalities.

Visions, extra senses, a little mind reading, Elijah only thinks he knows what he’s capable of, that is until he’s thrown into a world he didn’t know exists. And Celeste is entirely too smart for her own good. She needs to follow her intuition a little more. But together…they are electricity incarnate. They have a chemistry that sizzles right off the pages.

The storyline is unique and interesting, because of that I wanted to love this book. The editing kept me from doing so. I forced my way through to the end because it was such a good story, but it was frustrating at times. The dialogue wasn’t written as dialogue. Things like: “Hi, I’m Det. Quinn and my mute friend is Det. Elijah Cain.” or “C. Keegan Kent…” It’s speech, you can’t abbreviate Detective as Det. or introduce someone by saying their first initial because then that’s how it gets read and when you read it like that it doesn’t sound right in your head. At least not mine. Every time I read Det. I stopped and had to re-read the sentence with Detective instead. So frustrating! If it wasn’t for that this book would five stars all the way around.

Review of Fever (Dark Kings #16) by Donna Grant

 

“…I’ll never be able to walk away from you.”

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shifter Romance (Dragons), Suspense

Length: 400 Pages

POV: Third Person

Description:

His kiss was fire and passion. She shivered, wondering how he knew just how to touch her, to send her spiraling into an abyss of pleasure…

For centuries, the Dragon Kings have lived among mortals, forsaking their true selves. But for Kelton, hiding in the realm of shadows—and existing only in the world of dreams—is no longer an option. A human woman claims to know that he, like other dark warriors of his kind, is real. That the legends about these powerful, seductive men with hearts ablaze are true. And that, with just one embrace, Kelton could destroy her…or love her until the end of time.

Bernadette Davies is an anthropologist who knows better than to fall into the arms of a Dragon King. But how can she resist Kelton when he’s so willing to share his secrets and bear his soul? He hasn’t met a beautiful, trustworthy woman like Bernadette in…forever. But once they give into their mutual desire, their worlds will never be the same. Soon Bernadette must face her dilemma: Should she expose the truth about Kelton in the name of science? Or join him in his battle with the dark forces—in the name of love?

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from St. Martin’s Press via NetGalley.*

Kelton is in pure denial. He likes Bernadette, but the words relationship and love are so far out of his realm of denial that he can’t even grasp them. Not even with everyone telling him so. It’s comical at times.

Bernadette, on the other hand, doesn’t know who she can trust. She’s been lied to, manipulated, and now she’s entering dragon territory that not too many humans have ever witnessed. The one thing she does know is that she’s drawn to Kelton and she hopes it’s natural and mutual; not one of Usaeil’s manipulations.

Fever is a compelling book filled with lies, lust, love, and war. I couldn’t put it down once I started it.

“You’re…all right with us taking your memories?”

“No,” she said with a laugh. “But I understand why it needs to be done. This place is very special. All of your are. It should be hidden for as long as possible.”

Now I realize this is book 16 of the Dark Kings series, but I’ve only read this one and the one before it. I do want to go back and start from the beginning, but it’s not something I feel like is needed to grasp what’s happening in the series. There’s always just enough past information added to make it feel like you’re not missing anything.

If your interested in an action packed sexy dragon shifter read then this is a good series to sink your teeth into.

Review of Death and Dreams (Dark Desire #4) by Viola Calvary

“The Puppet Master sends her greetings…” 

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense

Length: 201 Pages

POV: Third Person

Description:

The final novel of Dark Desire: Dahlia and Kenny are wrapped in madness, passion, and the final struggle against the undying rulers.

Dahlia, Kenny, and Borreal are left with a scattered force as the king’s city is overrun by an unholy army of humans, monsters, and the undead. With seven immortals left alive to hunt her and her allies, Dahlia is forced to resort to desperate tactics that push her far beyond her limits. As the world crumbles around her, she falls into the embrace of the dark energy she channels and faces the ultimate sacrifice that there is no turning back from.

Don’t miss this steamy finale filled with new depths of darkness and suspense.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Death and Dreams wraps up the Dark Desire series perfectly. The ending was very unexpected, which made it all the better. Dahlia finally gets the freedom she’s wanted since the beginning. But first, there are a few immortals she has left to dispose of, and they do not go silently in the night….or well most don’t.

As its predecessors this one continues with the only kind of bloodshed two ‘demons’ can cause. However, they are not the only ones leading these battles. There’s a pink haired girl filled with determination to make the world a better place for her son and she leads everyone with the hope they need.

“A great black dragon watched over the woman he held; he was a force of nature, still as death.”

In the true nature of war I was saddened to discover not all of my favorite characters made it through to the end, but every single person fought well and deserved the win the team eventually got. I won’t say who, but if you are someone who gets attached to characters you may want to keep some tissues handy.

Review of No Saint (Blood Legion MC #3) by Rie Warren

“Is that a lure in your pecker?” 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, MC Romance, Suspense

Length: 369 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person

Description:

To him, she’s absolutely irresistible. To her, he’s nothing but bad news. When their fates collide, the only thing they have in common is destined to tear them apart.

SAINT
With a rap sheet about as long as the inked sleeves on my arms, I’ve been a misfit with a questionable track record. But I’ve fought for and found a home with the Blood Legion MC. Through thick and thin, brawls and bloodletting, I’ve created a rep: I’m the man.

I’m the man, and Honoré’s the only woman I want. This obsession with her is irrational and stupid considering she’s prickly, pissed off with me before I can even make a move, and definitely not my type. Except the beautiful New Orleans street busker takes my breath away—all untapped passion simmering just beneath the surface.

Something much darker simmers just beneath the surface of her life too.

HONORÉ
Being someone’s old lady is the last thing on my mind. Been there, done that, along with the obligatory bourbon shots, random ink, and riding bitch on some guy’s bike. I can’t slip away from my life, or spare time for a surly biker who has crawled under my skin and rattled my last nerve in a sexy, delicious way.

Saint. As if. I’ve known my fair share of outlaw MC dudes, and not a single one of them was anything close to righteous. I want to hate him and everything he stands for, but he’s ridiculously hot. He’s annoyingly persistent. And he’s surprisingly kind.

There’s no way I can sacrifice all I’ve fought for to be with him. When Saint brings danger to my door, it’s only a matter of time before my secrets spill over to rip us apart.

Blood Legion MC:
Cry Mercy
Save Grace
No Saint
Get Revenge

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

I have to start by saying that this book has very graphic fight scenes (which I enjoyed) and one hell of a rape scene. Some people can’t handle books like that, but in true MC fashion this one doesn’t go down without a fight.

Now onto my thoughts…

Saint wants what his fellow MC friends have found. That special someone. And the moment he laid eyes on Honoré he knew she was all he wanted. It didn’t matter that she shut down his advances each and every time he tried. He was determined to win her over. It doesn’t matter her secrets, he’ll do what his heart tells him to.

Honoré is a single mom with a demented baby daddy ex who enjoys making her life hell. She wants nothing to do with men like him and although she knows Saint is different, she just doesn’t know if she can trust her own judgement.

I love the relationship between Saint and Caleb. It’s pure and at times quite humorous. It’s a relationship every single mother wishes for. There’s also Momma Joan. I’m not sure I have words to describe her. She can make a biker blush that’s for sure.

Honoré, child, all I’m saying is I’m a lot older than you, and I still get my pipes cleaned from time to time. You’re too young to be getting cobwebs all up in your hoo-ha.”

No Saint is another amazing part of the Blood Legion MC. These guys may turn into romantic saps when they find that special someone, but don’t let that fool you when it comes to how far they’re willing to go for that person or to help a fellow brother. They would and have destroyed everything in their paths to save the ones they love. This book is no different. And it’s one of my favorites in this series.

“You’re not thinking about getting me back in the sack, are you? Because I do love you, but I think you broke my pussy last night.” – Have to say this is one of my favorite quotes now!

Review of Moon Kissed (The Outlier Prophecies #8) by Tina Gower

“That’s where I went wrong.”

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense

Length: 240 Pages

POV: First Person

Description:

A sinister crime. A careless coverup. An impossible secret. Will Kate and Ian solve the case before they become the next victims?

Kate Hale would rather remain an invisible pencil pusher, but that’s been impossible since she broke the biggest insider predictions scandal in history. Time away on a case with her pack seems like the perfect solution, however, she can’t work the investigation if she’s served a restraining order on arrival.

The team rushes to find a loophole in their time-sensitive case to unravel an underground werewolf blood market. Are the members of the local Texas wolf pack innocent victims or are they in on the job?

In the midst of mounting evidence against their new pack allies, Kate and Detective Ian Becker receive news that will turn their pack upside down. If they don’t act quickly, they will forever be shunned from werewolf society.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

It’s been awhile since I read the last Outlier book and I worried I’d forget who everyone was, but Tina does a wonderful job at recapping just enough so you remember exactly who everyone was.

Kate is the alpha of their abnormal pack. It’s not exactly something she’d planned on, but she wants to be with Ian and with him being a wolf, pack life comes with him. Although to make it a true pack and for them to be true mates in the eyes of other packs then they have to have a traditional mating ceremony and boy is that interesting.

I enjoyed following the Angel’s Peak Pack as they actually became more of a pack. They’re learning to work together in their new roles and everything is coming together for them. They may not be a traditional pack, but they’re slowly earning the respect of other packs.

Moon Kissed is another great book in the Outlier Prophecy Series. With Kate, Ian, Ali, Goya, Dalia, Abbott, and the baby there is never a dull moment in this suspenseful journey of discovering who the culprits are. And there is a little twist that I didn’t expect, which made it all the better.
