This is the 3rd book of the series. The story actually starts at the end of Cougar Bait.

The transition of each book is really good. Smooth and you do not have to look at the previous books for guidance.

I must say, I love Reese , he may be a big man, but his heart is pure and I love the way he treats Jo.

I can’t fault Jo with her reasons. After all, what happened to her was beyond and it truly hurts a person. Her personality is great too. However, gaining trust is never easy. Yet, as the book goes from chapter to chapter you can’t help but feel to trust a man like Reese.

As for Reese, how can one not fall in love with his kind of kindness, and patience? I half wished that my man was like him, even for a bit. He was this gentle charm, deadly, but sweet…in his tiny form.

The mystery and the action of the book is also quite good. The problem is slowly being introduce in the series. Which is actually pretty nice. Readers needs to kept on their seat as the read this series. Which alpha will have his mate? And who are the people behind the massive killings?

The series it self is good, from the lore to the way it end, up to the opening of the next book. There is a continuity that is actually good for those who reads series.

I look forward to reading the next book in this series.

Drakon’s Plunder (Blood of the Drakon, #3)

Drakon's Plunder

Life is not going well for archaeologist Sam Bellamy. She’s stuck in the middle of the ocean on a salvage boat with people who want her dead. It wasn’t her gift for being able to sense objects of power that got her here, rather her need to make a secret society called the Knights of the Dragon pay for killing her mentor. Sam doesn’t believe in dragons, but the Knights do, and if she can get one of the sacred artifacts they’re searching for away from them, she’ll consider it payback.

Ezra Easton is content to run his marine salvage company and live alone on his private island. He may be a four-thousand-year-old water drakon, but he’s civilized enough to know just because he pulls an injured woman from the ocean, doesn’t mean he gets to keep her…

When she wakes up, she has a few tall tales to share, and it seems the Knights are after her. But this drakon won’t give up his treasure.

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

ARC from NetGalley.

This is the third book of the series. It revolves around Ezra, a water dragon.

This was a really good story. From the start to the finish, it has certain coherence. Most especially, Sam. From the very beginning of the book, we see her as someone who will do everything to acquire the relic in the ocean to destroy it. She does not know what she had entered; all she knows is that she needs to avenge her mentor’s death.

Along came Ezra.

I love how she tried her best to protect him, even though he is has been doing it far longer than she have known him. I cannot call it love at first sight, lust, yes, but the love came from the constant worry of hers. Well, the dragon half of him knows from the beginning, but that is given. It’s the man that has to come to a realization.

It’s a book that would satisfy your love for treasures and love. how a drakon, finds his other half and does everything to protect the person who is more important than the richest he had amassed for a hundred years.

He now has what two of his brother’s holds dear…

A mate.

I look forward to reading the last brother’s story.

The Blurb- (5)

A STORM IS BREWING…
Remy Boudreaux is back in his hometown, New Orleans. He’s there with three of his fellow Dallas SWAT officers for a week of training with the NOLA PD. On the eve of a tropical storm, Remy and his buddies prowl the French Quarter. One tantalizing scent captures Remy’s senses, forcing him to follow until he is face to face with Triana Bellamy—his beautiful high school crush.

After reconnecting, Remy and Triana are close—very. Remy struggles to keep things casual. Ever since his partner—and first love—was killed on the job, he’s kept women at a distance.

But when a mysterious wolf pendant ropes them both into danger, Remy’s protective instincts kick in. He may have to reveal his true self…and hope Triana accepts him.

This is the 6th book in the series.

The book mostly is about fear in loving again. Remy has a total hang up when it comes to love and it pisses me off. As you read the book, the chemistry between the two was really explosive.

However, there were times that I wanted Remy to stop being an A**. I felt his pain upon losing his lover/partner.But it does not mean that he should shut his window when it comes to love. Triana, I love her. She has this realistic view in life and when she felt Remy slipping away, she had this outlook. Yeah, it hurts, but at least she was not in a denial mode.

What I really enjoy is the mother of Triana. Who would have thought?!

Overall, it was nice, but I feel that there should be more. It was really satisfying when some secrets were revealed. Also, the way each thoughts was said was really good.

“He knew Remy was hiding something for sure. Some of the more mature werewolves in the Pack, like Brooks and Gage, were walking lie detectors.”

I rate this 4 stars…well, I do like them!

Cougar Bait (Cougarville, #2)

Cougar Bait
Cougar Bait by Evangeline Anderson

~ARC from the publisher via NetGalley.~

The 2nd book of Cougarville series.

The story focus on Samantha, Sadie’s twin. She is a very renowned surgeon in her field but also, relationship wary. She is paired with Liam Keller. The Mayor of Cougarville, and the very same shifter that almost died during the fight on the last part of book one.

The dynamics of the characters are really interesting from the thoughts of Liam to the reluctance of Samantha having babies. It was what the whole book was about. However, at some point, I felt the pain of Keller. It is not easy to be at the receiving end of a rejection. It made me want to scream at Sammie the way she accused Keller.

Keller on the other hand was something I was not expecting. The way he took care of Sammie even though she rejected him, made me love him. It is not easy to be in his place. And I really adore how Ms. Anderson revealed Liam’s true personality. Even I was amazed.

I love this because since the start of the series I have always thought that Liam is one of those Alpha men that is all brawn and guts, but I was proved wrong. I was actually happy when he admitted his feeling towards Sammie to Mathis. I was speechless.

It was a one sided love for a while but up to the end, Sammie finally succumb to her true feeling.

It is not easy being in her shoes. But with the right person to support you nothing is impossible.

I rate this 4.5 for the way the continuation was carried over. Also on how Liam’s character was revealed.

I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

~ ARC was given for a Blog Tour ~

The 8th book of Ms. Kym Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans. As a follower of her books, also a reader, I was excited on how this will turn up. I enjoyed the previous sneak peak of each book at the end of the previous books, and I must say, I look forward to reading this book. I must say, it was better that I was expecting.

As much as I’d like to say that I knew Jake from book one, I can’t. It was hard to place his name, I only knew him on Jax’s book. But it did not stop me from liking him.

“I think we both know what’s happening here between them. I can’t say I’m thrilled about how this is goin’ down, but I can say that number one, this mating shit…I’m going to run like hell if it happens to me. It’s messy, complicated stuff. You do not want to even try to understand it.” ~ Jake talking to Finn about mating (Excerpt from Jax.)  

I like his personality. I mean, he was so different for the other Alpha’s in the series. He denied his nature up to the point that he forcibly handed his pack to another Alpha. Then again, Fate will never be deterred. I had a strong desire to read Jax, so I did. As I write this post, there are some lines that would made you laugh at Jake on how he view mating.  Hence, Kai. It took one special being for him to realize his true calling.

Kai, on the other hand, I can clearly understand her reluctant to meet with supernaturals. It is all because of what she is. The life she had was not something I would wish upon anyone. And it did not help matters that Jake is an Alpha, at the same time, both of them are attracted to each other. Throw in Quint, and we have an unlike trio.

I must say, in Jax’s book, they nearly killed each other, but here? Man! I am left speechless on how they interacted with each other.

Jake’s book made me cry several times. I can feel the hopelessness of Kai. How she did her best to conceal her true nature, trying so hard to avoid people for they would either kill her, or they would die. And each time she doubts herself, Jake would banish it by proving himself. And that made me realize how much he cares.

Both of them denied their true nature. An Alpha, who is reluctant to part with the pack he love, and a being that is so rare, that they killed those who protect her. Yet Fate bought them together. Not to posses each other, but to make them realize their role in the world they live in.

The snippets of Dom’s past was traumatic too. I had to stop myself for brawling like a baby on how her kids died. Quint’s part with sharing his past was something that I was not expecting. I mean everyone thought of him as ruthless, during that moment? He was a different man altogether.

Each characters in the book had their own problems that they need to deal with eventually. Ms. Kym just gave a clue on their past.

JakeTease5v2

I think it is safe to say that Jake was not expecting Kai to “appear” in his life. Nevertheless, his wolf chose and the man accepted. As for Kai, she believe she will spend the rest of life alone, but Destiny prove her wrong.

All he wanted was to protect her, and all she wanted is to find her lost sister. And falling in love? None of them wanted it, yet it happened. It was the clincher in this book. When the mating mark appeared, I cried. It was the most pivotal moment in the book.

I gave it 5 stars, due to the tears it made me shed. From Quint and Jake’s banner, to the way Jake treated Kai.

More power! I look forward to Quint’s book.

Blaze (Dark Kings, #11)

Blaze-FB-Cover-AVAILABLE-NOW

Blaze by Donna Grant

~ARC from the publisher via NetGalley.~

The 11th book of the series. If you read books 9.5 and 10, you will notice that there are some events that are parallel to this book. It is because the events were happening at same time. I was thankful that I actively read this series. If this is the first time you read this book, I recommend that you read Dragon Fever and Firestorm to understand some of the events that are mentioned within the book.

Blaze focuses on some of the loose questions that we had on Firestorm. We are given other questions that made wonder “Where?”  Although it certainly made things clear for me.

Devon, a woman that do not believe in magic and anything that resembles the unknown, is suddenly thrown into a world she is skeptical about. Doubts assailed her when she found out the people she have been working for had her under surveillance.

Anson, one of the Dragon Kings is tasked to protect Ryder’s mate Kinsey and Henry’s sister Ester, as they hack into Kinsey former company. He had no desire to involve himself with humans, however, Fate has other plans.

As the story progresses, we are presented with some events that could affect the future of the characters in the next book. From the Ulric’s form of revenge, to Rhi’s involvement with the Warriors, to Con’s affair, and to the repercussion of the Fae Queen’s actions. We cannot really say, as a reader what each action would result. All we can do is wait of the next book.

I enjoyed reading this book. Especially at the last two or three chapters of the book. It was such a nice ending.

However, trouble brews as the book ends. How will affect the future? I hope that what ever the two plans, our heroes will survive.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Untamed Vampire (Last True Vampire, #4)

The Untamed Vampire

 

 

 

 
The Untamed Vampire by Kate Baxter

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

~ARC was given by the publisher via NetGalley.~

This is the 4th book of the series. The author and the series is new to me. I was like hitting my self because I had to look for the rest of the books. From the title The Last True Vampire it seemed so dark. And I was not disappointed. From how book one started, we are presented a dying race, where in the last of their kind had lost its hope. Odd mating started, but this? I was really entertained from the start to finish.

If you read the The Warrior Vampire , then you will have an idea how Chelle felt. I was so sadden on what happen to her. And yet happy. From the way, the Collective sounded, even i do not want to be burdened by the memories of dead people. Her ability? Those were the highlight of my reading moments. They were awesome and it helped that she is different. Her thoughts on love? Not so much. But as you read the book, you will gradually understand why.

Gunnar? A typical alpha. I wanted to strike him a couple of times, but you can clearly see that he enjoyed bating Chelle. It seemed wrong at first, to hide his mate, but given the situation? In his eyes, that was the best thing he could do to protect those around him. As I read the book, I feel in love with his persona. I am not a fan of bearded men, but i had to imagine him without it, and he is one hot man!

The best thing that I loved about is the Lore. Werewolves are created, not birthed. Ever PNR book must have their own Lore, and the way this series Lore is really good. From the creation of vampires to the rest of the paranormal with in the book. Having a good Lore is one of the best foundation when it comes to such genre, and this is series had a very solid one.

“You are my family. My heart. My soul. Everything. If they love me, they’ll love you.”

I will leave the very best line that I truly liked in the book. I made me cry when I read it. I gave this 4.5 stars due because of the continuity from the first book up to the last.
