HOOKED ON A PHOENIX – REVIEW


LOCKED IN A BANK VAULT TOGETHER…
THEY MIGHT REDEFINE THE MEANING OF ‘SAFE’ SEX

Misty Carlisle works as a bank teller in Boston’s financial district. She’s had more rotten luck in her life than most, except when her childhood crush shows up to cash his paycheck. Then her heart races and her mouth goes dry.

Gabe Fierro is a firefighter―and a phoenix. Like his brothers, his biggest challenge is finding a woman open-minded enough to accept a shapeshifter into her life. When his boyhood friend asks him to watch over his little sister Misty, he reluctantly agrees. But when the bank where she works gets held up, Gabe does everything he can to protect her. The two of them end up locked in the bank’s vault…where things get steamier than either of them ever imagined.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

I am loving this series! The characters and world building are well-developed. This series has laughter and has a lot of snarky dialogue.  A friend asks Gabe to watch out for his Sister (Misty Carlisle) while he is away. Gabe has not seen Misty since they were kids. Misty has had a crush on Gabe since she was a kid, and now her crush is walking into the bank and to her to cash his check.  Now here is where it gets good. The bank is now getting robbed. Misty and Gabe are being marched down to the vault. When Gabe gets his chance, he pulls Misty in it and pulls the door closed. Locking them both in the vault. The chemistry between these two quickly steams up the vault very quickly. Gabe falls for her fast and must tell her he is a Phoenix and hope she doesn’t run screaming from him. I recommend this book and series to everyone. I give Hooked on a Phoenix (Phoenix Brothers) 5/5 stars.

BRING THE HEAT – REVIEW

bring the heat cover

“Can you stand the Heat?”

HE SAYS . . .

I, Aidan the Divine, am, well divine. My name was given to me by the Dragon Queen herself! I’m a delight! Cheerful. Charming. And a mighty warrior who is extremely handsome with a very large and well-hidden hoard of gold. I am also royal born, despite the fact that most in my family are horrendous beings that don’t deserve to live. And yet, Branwen the Awful—a low-born, no less—either tells me to shut up or, worse, ignores me completely.

SHE SAYS . . .

I’ll admit, I ignore Aidan the Divine because it annoys him. A lot. But, we have so much to do right now, I can’t worry about why he keeps staring at me, or why he always sits so close, or why he keeps looking at me like he’s thinking about kissing me. We have our nations to save and no time for such bloody foolishness . . . no matter how good Aidan looks or how long his spiked tail is. Because if we’re going to win this war before it destroys everything we love, we’ll have to face our enemies together, side by side and without distractions. But if we make it out alive, who knows what the future will hold . . .

“A hot-hot series.” —Library Journal

“This potent story mix is wacky and fun-filled, with plenty of humor and blood-thirsty action.” —RT Book Reviews on Feel the Burn

“A chest thumping, mead-hall rocking, enemy slaying brawl of a good book.” —All Things Urban Fantasy on The Dragon Who Loved Me

I was given a copy of this book Netgalley for an honest review.

Bring the Heat (Dragon Kin) is SCORCHING HOT! Ancient mountains have been turned to rubble and Annwyl is missing. Aiden and Branwen will follow Keita on a mission. During this time Branwen an Aiden will fall closer together and in bed together. What Branwen doesn’t know is Aiden has fallen for her. One of my favorite moments in the book was when Caswyn at her horse that was dying. Here he is just chomping down on the horse with no idea he was doing anything wrong. Aiden is trying to hold Branwen back from killing Caswyn. He just looks at them, Caswyn that is, and just tells them that the horse was already dying and he was hungry. All Branwen wants to do is kill him for eating her favorite horse. There is many more bust out laughing moments throughout the book. I love all the books in this series, and recommend them to everyone. Branwen and Aiden are just right for each other! They help to balance each other out. I give BRING THE HEAT 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW – RENEGADE DRAGON BY LOLITA LOPEZ

renegade dragon - cover
NOTHING HOTTER THAN DRAGON’S FIRE

When her best friend disappears, bio-engineering student Eris Jones embarks on the quest of her life. Her search leads to a secluded estate where she experiences visions of a powerful, winged creature who’s transformed into a tall, dangerously sexy man at her touch. But the feel of his rock-hard abs and lean, sinewy arms tells Eris this is no dream . . . it’s real.

Niko Drakon is dangerous and he knows it. When the call to mate is too strong, he has no choice but to lock himself away in his basement saferoom. Otherwise, people get hurt. The moment Eris walks into his home, nothing can keep him from claiming her. However, she could also be the key to bringing down the dragons’ greatest enemy, which leaves Niko with a devastating choice: keep Eris for himself or lose her to the cause he’s served for most of his life . . .

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Renegade Dragon (Dragon Heat Book 4) is a roller coaster of a ride! The story line and character development are well-developed. Eris is looking for her best friend who went missing. The bread crumbs of information leads her to an estate that is secluded from anyone else. Nikos is locked away to protect himself during his mating heat. He watches Eris on the security camera as she breaks into the house. When she eats a golden apple from the sacred tree, he must kill her. When he is standing in front of her he notices that she is his mate. If you have not read any of the books in this series, I would recommend starting with the first book so you will not be lost. On that note, I loved the book and give RENEGADE DRAGON 5/5 STARS.

SHADOW SILENCE BY YASMINE GALENORN

New York Times bestselling author Yasmine Galenorn invites readers to Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living and the lake never gives up her dead…

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on Lake Crescent in the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I’m Kerris Fellwater, and I’m a spirit shaman. It’s my responsibility to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people—and secrets—don’t always stay buried.

My best friend Peggin finds herself under a curse after she is almost taken by the Lady of the Lake, and the Unliving are determined to drag her back to the hungry waters. As Bryan—my guardian and mate—and I work to break the hex, we uncover a dark and violent mystery from the past. One the Hounds of Cú Chulainn will do anything to guard—even if they must summon a legion of the dead to destroy Whisper Hollow.

Kerris is not happy that her friend Peggin is moving to a house close to the lake. She has had  a dream that the Lady of the Lake has claimed her friend when she drowns her in the lake. When Kerris and the rest of the gang help Peggin move, they find Peggin being taken by the Lady. Kerris jumps in and saves her friend.

Ryan Fierro is also wanting to be a fire fighter. Fierro is a phoenix shifter and part of a family full of Boston fire fighters. They are both in the running for the only position left at the station house. They both have to keep their secret, but how can they do that when they have an attraction to each other. There was a few spots that had me laughing and snickering. My family thought I was going crazy. I really loved these two characters and loved the way it ended. I recommend this book and series to everyone. I give MY WILD IRISH DRAGON 5/5 STARS.
