Good Wednesday all , now that I have my head screwed on straight and I can see again . We are going to review BECOMING A LEGEND by Sarah Robinson

                             BOOK BLURB

From the author of Saving a Legend (“A deep and moving story about family, acceptance, and love.”—Katy Evans) comes another smoldering MMA romance featuring the Kavanagh brothers, the chiseled alpha males whose real legacy is love.

Kane Kavanagh has always had one goal: being the best mixed martial arts fighter alive. With the MMA National Championships in Las Vegas fast approaching, the man they call “Killer” has no intention of letting anyone or anything get in his way. Somehow, though, a feisty opponent has slipped beneath his guard—and stolen his heart. Fiery and passionate, Nora Hannigan is harder to pin down than any rival Kane has faced in the ring. And she isn’t afraid to tell Kane that she wants nothing to do with him.

With her best friend about to marry into the Kavanagh family, Nora has been resisting Kane’s shameless attempts at flirting for months. But after their undeniable chemistry finally takes over, leading to the hottest night of Nora’s life, she’s running scared. There’s a lot about her life Kane doesn’t know, and she won’t be responsible for ending his career. Now Kane’s out to prove that he’s ready for commitment by winning her heart—and he’s never lost a fight.

                                MY REVIEW
 This is book three in the Kavanagh series and it is middle brother Kane's book.  Kane is in training for the MMA Championship in Vegas . He doesn't want to get tied down with anything or anyone but Nora his brothers fiancĂ©e's best friend . Keeps getting under his skin  as much as he tries to ignore his feeling . She is there but its not all what it seems . She keeps pushing him away but when the heart wants what the heart wants . There is no denying it .
  I really liked the characters in this book they are all strong complex characters . Kane is the  kind of guy that you see everywhere . The guy that wants no strings and isn't looking for a long term. He is the middle child and also a twin so we see him as kind of the forgotten one . He is trying to prove to everyone that he is as good as his brothers .  But as you dive deeper into the story you see him evolve and grow as he gets to know Nora. Nora is sassy and sweet all rolled into one gorgeous girl . But she does have her secrets that she wants no one to find out about . She rebuffs Kane's advances for such a long time . You see her fight her desires all the way through this book. You actually can feel the heat between these two characters when they are together . The rest of the Kavanagh clan are back and plotting and supporting these two as they make their way to each other.
   This book had me up all night  I just couldn't put it down . Sarah outdid herself with this one . The characters are well written and the story moves at a fast pace . I like how the author brought back all the other characters from her other books to be part of this one . They made the book a fun read .
This was a fast read and really enjoyed this one. I must say Kane is by far the funniest and sweetest brother out of them . So if you want a good read that has love and some mystery and intrigue . Check out BECOMING A LEGEND  by Sarah Robinson

Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends in the States , if you are looking for a good book to read while you are relaxing this weekend . Let me tell you about CAPTURED PLEASURE by Tanya Sands . All the royalties from this book will be donated to HONOR THE SACRIFICE  an organization that aids military vets and their families

                            BOOK BLURB

**All royalties from the sales of this book to be donated to Honor the Sacrifice, an organization that aids military veterans and their families.**
Bradley Michaels moves to the west coast to be closer to his family. Through a military commitment he meets a young woman who immediately grabs his interest. Thinking they have a connection, he is shocked when he sees her with someone from his past.
Kellee Drake snags a great opportunity to not only be part of a great charity fundraiser for Honor the Sacrifice but a chance to get her name out there. Through this gig she meets two guys and is instantly attracted to both. Thinking the worst of herself, it isn’t until the three of them are together that things get curiously interesting.
Ayden Jones lost his best friend in high school over a relationship. Or rather a lack thereof. But the suggestion freaked his friend out. Years later a simple photo shoot brings them together.
Can Bradley and Ayden mend their friendship and find love with Kellee? Can Kellee come to terms with her feelings for both men?

                            MY REVIEW
 This is the fifth book in the chasers series and is the story of Bradley Ayden and Kellee . I must say that this is a very hot book with two very hot military men , who are best of friends and a sexy curvy photographer .  They are pulled together by a project and find out there is a spark between the three of them . Will they find love and mend the friendship they guys once had .
 I sat down trying to find something good to read when I found this book on my kindle. I really like the characters and how they interacted The sexual attraction between the men and Kellee is great.
 They are both wanting her but also have reservations about how it will all work out.  Kellee is a strong character but also really fragile, she is living with diabetes and has to keep a check on herself .She is curvy and really career driven . Bradley is a lieutenant in the Air force and is hot oh so hot and very alpha . You will absolutely fall in love with him . Ayden is a Range Officer in the marines and is also one hot dude . He is the more dominant of the two an is one panty melting dude . You will want him to do all sorts of naughty things to you . Trust me on that one . Throw them both together and you will have some very hot flashes happening The best character I found and fell in love with is Suki. Kellee's service dog, she is a great dog and helps out when Kellee needs her . She is sweet and loving . I love any kind of book that has an animal in it . Especially a dog that has a job to do like Suki.
  This was a good evenings read for me . The characters are well written and complex . The story flowed well . I finished it in an evening . This is a hot sexy story that will have you blushing and fanning yourself as you read .  Overall this is a great story and has a great meaning to go with it as you read . But there are just a few spots that just didn't grab me . It kind of felt repetitive  like I read in another one of her books . But that didn't dissuade me from reading and falling in love with the characters . So if you want a good hot sexy read that will have you fanning yourself and donate to a worthwhile cause check out CAPTURED PLEASURE

 Good Wednesday all, today we are going to review MARKED BY FATE by Freya LeCrow

                             BOOK BLURB

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.

In book one of the Path to Destiny: Majesta never thought she would find the man of her dreams, let alone two of them. The thought of love at first sight seemed ludicrous to her. Then she fell into the arms of a man who swept her off her feet. The trouble with both men, they are not human. A simple book keeper finds herself in a middle of a book herself.

Five hundred years Maganusson has waited for his soul to return only to witness the human woman being swept away by another man. One that he knows to well. It isn't going to be easy to get her back and keep her safe. He can't lose her again, but he can't think of her becoming like him.

Previously published as Fated by KR Brown.
                              MY REVIEW
  Let me introduce you to Majesta a young woman who is swept up into a fairy tale of sorts . But everything is what it seems . She has not one but two men that are vying for her love . Things aren't what they seem because these two men are both hiding something will she have her true love .
  I  really liked this book. It took me a bit to get into it but once I did I loved it . The characters are well written and complex .  Majesta came off as girl who doesn't know what she wants until Magnusson came into her life . She is his soul mate and is at ease with him like no other . Magnusson is very pragmatic and a true alpha is so many ways . He is so in love with Majesta and is heart broken when Majesta is taken away .
  The author takes us on a roller coaster ride with this book . You will love the characters and the story takes you to places that will leave you thinking what the heck did he do . Will they ever get their happy ending  You will get sucked into the story and you will cheer for the characters. You will cheer and maybe shed a tear or two as you read and find out what has happened to the characters . So if you want a good story with good characters check out MARKED BY FATE . You will be in for one hell of a joy ride full of suspense, romance and some hot steamy sex .

  Good morning all . Today is a good day here on the blog . It is release day for one of my favourite authors . MAGICALLY DELICIOUS Magic and Mayhem book 4 by Robyn Peterman

                             BOOK BLURB

What does a hungry, pregnant witch do when her whole freaking town goes on a no carb diet?
I’ll tell you what. She goes on the sly and conjures up some anchovy-chocolate chunk cookies dipped in hot sauce—that’s what.

Of course my cheating gets complicated when all of the magic in the world goes on the fritz. To solve that particular wrinkle, I’ll have to finally find the source of the lurking evil.

Easier said than done. Maybe if I wasn’t pregnant and starving, I could deal with the nasty old witch who resides in a gingerbread house. Add in carb eating fairies who speak French and three rotund familiars who enjoy defacing property with profane graffiti, and what you get is almost more trouble than I can handle in my baby baking condition.

I’m still not convinced I won’t be giving birth to puppies since the smokin’ hot father of my babies is a werewolf, and NO ONE has given me ANY concrete proof to the contrary. Getting knocked up by the werewolf of my dreams was all kinds of awesome in practice, but the reality of becoming a mother scares me more than Baba Yaga’s horrendous 1980’s wardrobe.

Monstrous decisions with enormous ramifications are best handled with meticulous planning—or in my case—after eating a giant mustard slathered jelly doughnut. Neither of those options is possible at the moment, but since there is no way I’m bringing my children into a magicless world, winging it will just have to work.

Wait… Was that a contraction I just felt?

Goddess help us all…

                            MY REVIEW
  What do you get when you have a strong witch that is also having cravings for all things carb related. A sexy wolf shifter mate who is her mate and a town that is also staying off carb . You get one cranky ass witch that can smite your butt at a moments notice . Meet Zelda and Mac and the rest of the town of Assjacket.  Zelda is pregnant with twins and is one starving witch and will do anything to get those carbs . Even battle an old witch with a gingerbread house and carb eating fairies that only speak French . Will Zelda survive her pregnancy and survive the evil that is coming .
   I must say these are my favourite characters, I love Zelda and Mac . Zelda is such a saucy character . I love her quick wit and smart wise cracking fly by the seat of her pants woman . She is trying to be a good girl but the carbs or the lack of them is making her cranky .  She is such a fun character to read . I love her and her wise cracking attitude. Mac is her mate and one sexy alpha wolf shifter . Who is being sweet and kind with his mates pregnancy . He is trying to keep her calm and happy . Also trying to keep his Bon Jovi from being blown off . You have to read the book to find out . Its pretty funny actually what you can do with a ho ho . The rest of the gang is back . Sassy and Jeeves and the rest of the shifters . All trying to keep Zelda happy as they are suffering from the lack of carbs in their life .
    This author is an author I go to when I need a laugh . This book was no exception to the rule. I love reading her work. I laughed so hard while reading I had tears rolling down my face at some parts . The words that come from that woman's mind is amazing . Her twisted sense of humor will make you go really and laugh .  This is the 4th book in the series and the series just keeps getting better and better . I love the characters and always look forward to find out what they are up to . They get crazier and crazier with each book . The author takes us on a fun filled joy ride that will keep you reading well into the night and laughing continuously . Check out the Magic and Mayhem books . You will not be disappointed in the least .

                            BOOK BLURB

A collection of macabre short stories from the mind of author PM Barnes. Featuring two never before published pieces from Sarah Ramsey and Brandon Ryals.

                         MY REVIEW
   This was a great fast read with a variety of short stories which will creep the bejesus out of you . There are some new stories and some well loved favorites that you would love to read over and over again. She can build suspense with just the way she writes . The stories are so tension filled of course the first story had me so on edge . It had clowns in it and I really don't like clowns . There were a couple of stories that I have read before but it didn't matter. They still gave me the creeps . 
 We have everything from spiders to zombies and everything in between .
  There are two stories that were written by other authors  which were really good . I just wished that PM had written more . They take us to the edge and then bring us back .
 The writing is great and the authors have a great grasp on horror . So if you want a great short story book grab Desperate Dreamers by Pm Barnes

   Welcome to Tuesday, hope everyone is doing well and living large . Today we are going to review a great book NEVER DIE by N.L Hoffmann

                            BOOK BLURB

This is a standalone novel.

Never give up. Never surrender.

Never Die.

Riley Cole is a lone wolf. Metaphorically speaking, that is.

After living through a bleak childhood and pathetic excuses for parents, Riley left the backwoods town of Luna Hill, Missouri happily in her rearview mirror. Her survival instincts and natural independence brought her to Chicago, where she discovered her calling as a private investigator.

However, when a mysterious stranger from her hometown requests her services, Riley must summon all of her courage to face the ghosts of her past.

As she gets closer to the answers that she seeks, something otherworldly happens. Riley becomes an actual wolf.

With the help of Sheriff Luke Thatcher, can Riley get to the truth and save those closest to her before it's too late?

                               MY REVIEW
 I love this authors writings so when I saw that she had a new book out . I jumped at the chance to give it a read . This is a stand alone book about a small town girl that left . Made good and had to come back to the small town , where her child hood was horrible . Sounds like your everyday story of most small town stories , right . Wrong this one is so much more there is a werewolf pack involved . Meet Riley a private eye that is sucked into going back to her home town . A place that she never wanted to go back to. But she is on a case and needs to rescue her little sister , that she didn't even know she had . She gets more then she bargained for when she meets Luke Thatcher . the hot sheriff in town and his bad boy brother Lance .  Will she get the answers she needs and will she be able to handle what happens to her .
    I really loved the characters in this book . The author writes such great strong complex female characters . Riley is the type of girl that has been through so much in her life . She grew up in the most horrible conditions but has survived . You see her struggling at the beginning of the book .  But as you read you see Riley grow stronger and become the woman that she knew she was all the time.
Lance Thatcher is the bad boy that has grown up to still be the bad boy around town . He has an arrogant attitude but underneath he has a heart . He is so much an alpha, cocky but also loves his family. He loves flirting with Riley and driving his brother Luke crazy. I actually really like Lance even though at some points I wanted to knock him upside the head.
 Luke is the sullen sheriff of Luna Hill and Lance's brother . He just seems like the a lone wolf and he is complicated . He is surly, and sexy as sin . He is trying to keep his brother in line and trying to live down the bad rep of his family. He is smitten with Riley and she is smitten with him but they both try and deny their feelings. I am so glad he is such a great character to read . I kind of fell for him hard . I love brooding characters that have that alpha sexiness .
 There are so many great supporting characters that go along with Riley, Lance and Luke and they all play important parts in this book .
    I couldn't put this book down . Like all N.L's books I was hooked from the very first page . She takes us on an adventure with every turn on the page . The story was so good and such a nice different way to have a werewolf pack . You will really like them and Riley will make you cheer for her and Luke . The twist at the end will make you go wow . The story is a thrill ride and will keep you reading all night long . I will admit I read this book in one night and I had a book hangover. So if you want a great book that will keep you reading and loving . Check out NEVER DIE  by N.L Hoffmann

Title: Dark and Beautiful Nights
Series: The Covenant Series #3
Author: Betty Shreffler
Genre: PNR Romance Suspense
One man will fight to keep her love while the other will do whatever it takes to win it...
Devotion keeps Kayci longing for Adrian's return. Dark magic is the only way to free him and its cruel seduction has captured Kayci in its embrace. Cassius, unwilling to lose the one thing he's longed for—his mate, fights for Kayci's heart and saves her from her biggest threat… herself.
Pulled between unrestrainable desire for Cassius and her devotion to Adrian, leaves Kayci suffering from the worst battle she's ever encountered…the one for her heart.

Cass took the glass from her hand and sniffed it. “What is it?”
Kayci shrugged. “The bartender is a witch. He makes it. It’s blood with some kind of potion in it. It makes me feel amazing.”
Cass studied the contents. His eyes drifted over the glass to her. “That’s my job.” He saw the arousal sweep over her face and it awakened his instinct. Yes. Your mate. Yours.
Kayci took the glass back from his hand and gulped it down.

Cass leaned on his arm. “Tell me, Kat. How’d you end up with pretty boy?” He motioned to Brad, sitting with his buddies, scowling at him.

Kayci rolled her eyes. “I met him a couple months ago, when I first starting using dark magic. I fed from him then. I ran into him again last night.”

“You sleep with him?” Cass asked, avoiding eye contact with her. He chugged more beer as the rising jealousy tightened his gut.

Kayci chuckled at his apparent discomfort with the subject. “No, not that it’s any of your business if I did.”
Cass set the beer on the counter and turned himself to face her. He rotated her stool toward him, putting her legs between his. “It is my business. You’re my mate. If you need a man’s touch, you come to me. Understand?”
Ohh! Why did his possessiveness irritate her and arouse her all at once? She narrowed her eyes. “I’ll do as I please, Cass. I’m not your mate.”
“I thought we’d already resolved this? You are my mate and I’m here to stay.”
She let out a frustrated breath of air. “You’re incredibly pushy.”
Cass grinned before placing his hands under her ass and scooting her closer to him. “I know.”
The blood and potion warmed her body, causing the usual euphoric sensation. As his provocative gaze met hers, her body ignited. The warming sensation turned to a harmonizing pulse and her body itched to have his hands caressing her, his lips passionately claiming hers. She gazed up at him, mesmerized by his beautiful wolf eyes and full lips. She reached up, unable to stop herself from running her finger along them. He bit her finger, gave it a flick of his tongue, and then claimed it with his mouth. Heat warmed her below, sending quick exuberant shocks of electricity from her belly, down and back. She grinned, fangs visible and eyes glazed with desire.
Cass saw the hunger in her eyes, causing his body to respond. Pressure extended his jeans and he kneaded her thighs in response. “I like what that drink does to you.” He winked.
Kayci bit her lip as desperate longing slammed against her, begging for release.
Cass’ eyes lowered, fixed on her lips. “You know what that does to me, don’t you?”
Kayci nodded, grinning, her mouth nearly salivating for a taste of him.
“Keep it up and I’ll bend you over this bar and take you in front of everyone,” he murmured breathlessly.
“You would, wouldn’t you?” she teased.
“Don’t challenge me, Kat. I’m barely restraining myself as it is.”
Kayci slid her fangs over her bottom lip and released it, just to watch the hunger grow vehemently in his eyes. “Why do you make me feel this way?” The ardency in her own voice startled her.
“I don’t know how to make it any clearer for you, you’re my mate, and once you accept it, we can get on with giving each other unrestrained pleasure.” The connotation of his promised desire dripped off his lips.
Unrestrained pleasure? How can I resist?
“And if I am your mate, what then?”
Cass took a strand of her hair in his hand and gave it a tantalizing tug before placing it behind her ear. When her body shivered with arousal, his instinct purred with satisfaction. “I claim you as mine, mark you…” He caressed her cheek. Her eyes closed as her breath quickened. “We’ll be tied forever. As my mate, I’ll love you, ensure you’re happy, protected, satisfied—always.”
She could hear the promise in his earnest voice. She opened her eyes to see the fire burning in his.
And what woman wouldn’t want all of that?
“What do you mean by mark me?” The idea of him biting her stirred her already yearning desire.
The excitement in her voice worsened the pressure on his jeans. He glanced around at their current location, returning to her fiery, lust-filled gaze. “This isn’t the best place for that conversation.”
She stared at him expectantly, licking her lips, bringing his fixed stare to them.
“Just remember—you asked.”
He tucked his massive hands under her thighs and gave her ass a tug, bringing her as close to him as she could get while still sitting on the stool, barely. He leaned closer, lowering his voice for her to hear his private share.
“When I make love to you, I want all of you. I want to ravage your body, take you beneath me, sink my teeth into you, claim you as mine. It will be the most passionate and erotic experience you’ve ever had and I know you’ll enjoy it and I’ll enjoy watching the pleasured moans escape those luscious lips.”
The heat of his breath on her ear and his strong, solid hand kneading the inside of her upper thigh had her trembling with need. His sensuous touch sparked heat and fire—ravenous fire. It gurgled in her belly, awakening after a long period of dormancy.
She bit her lip—hard. He leaned back to see her reaction. His eyes glimmered with satisfaction.
His captivating wolf eyes remained on her, stabbing right through her, to the deepest part of her.
“The funny thing about you, Kat, is your words always reject me, but your body begs me to satisfy it.”
Her breath escaped. Damn, he’s good. Her fangs stabbed her bottom lip as her body pulsed with desire. The potion’s affect helped his cause, betraying her. It was supposed to give her numbing pleasure not add to the aching need she had for him.
She closed her eyes and gave her head a shake. She scooted back on the stool before she clawed at the clothes covering him. She opened her eyes to see him grinning at her. That usual arrogant smile that said, he knew exactly what was going on inside her mind and body.
She stepped off the stool. Must have cold shower.
Cass’ hand grabbed a hold of her hip as she swayed, giving it a firm squeeze. She fell against his arms that he used to pull her closer, bringing her inches from his lips. He stared down at her, his wolf eyes studying her eyes, her expression.
He could see the struggle in her eyes—the longing, the confusion, and frustration. He would make things clear for her.
“It’s about time I start pissing you off.”
He brought his lips down on hers, claiming them with his own. The fire roiled in her belly, exploding like a volcano. She sunk into his lips, letting the sensation take her.
He dipped his tongue into her mouth, coaxing her further, tasting more of her, wanting more of her. Satisfaction filled him when she didn’t pull away. He held the nape of her neck and drove their kiss further. His hand squeezed her backside as he pulled her body against his. He needed her, needed her to give in. He couldn’t take her denial much longer. It was driving him wild. He needed to touch her, caress every part of her.
When their lips parted, she swayed at the dizziness that swam through her head and the extraordinary arousal throbbing between her thighs.
“Yes, Kat?” He could hear the desire in her voice. He longed to satisfy it and to satisfy her. He brushed one of her curls behind her ear.
“Want this as much as I do, don’t you beautiful?”
She did, she wanted to pounce on him like a panther on its prey and devour him one succulent sample at a time.
“How about I take you home?” he asked, never easing his affectionate hold on her.
“Yes,” is all she could sputter.

Author Bio:
Betty Shreffler is a self-proclaimed nerd and nature enthusiast obsessed with folklore, photography, writing, reading, movies, board games, hiking, gardening and spending time with her husband and five fur babies. Not necessarily in that exact order though. During her outdoor adventures she's been face to face with an alligator, a bear and a coyote, making for some of the most memorable experiences of her life. She loves to capture and share the world's beauty through the lens of her beloved Nikon camera. Her work experience has been diverse from working as a Ranger for the National Park Service to management positions in Fortune 500 companies. She’s lived in four different states and moved homes twelve times. She received a BA in organizational management and minor in sociology, although her heart has always belonged to writing and photography. Growing up, she read romance or supernatural novels and jotted down poems and short stories to express her emotions and alleviate the characters' voices in her head. Not much has changed, only now her stories are lengthier and her characters more interesting.
