The Dragons Temptation by Lily Cahill

The Dragon’s Temptation by Lily Cahill

Published: May 2016

Genre: Paranormal Romance

E-book Pages: 188

Audiobook hrs: Not Available

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Summary

Felicity Valdez just wants a simple life. She’s turned her back on her family legacy and escaped to a tiny Pennsylvania town. She’s even changed her name to cut all ties between herself and the powerful Valdez family, who rules the magical world. All she wants is to run her shop, a place where she can brew up potions and a damn fine cup of coffee. And maybe flirt with the gorgeous guy who keeps coming in to see her. But there’s more to Damien than meets the eye, and Felicity is soon caught up in intrigue that could shatter her simple life forever.

Damien Dragomir has been on the run for decades. As the last dragon ruler of the magical world, he has sheltered his brothers from the Valdez family, usurpers who murdered his parents and would do the same to him if they could find him. Damien’s drive in life has been the safety of his family, but that was before he met Felicity. He can’t stop thinking about the beautiful witch who makes the killer coffee. Is the fire he feels for Felicity enough to trump his hatred of the Valdez name?

Love is supposed to conquer all, but can it overcome their history?

Review

Short story, kind straight to the point. I enjoyed the book while I was reading it, I did feel the instant attraction between Felicity and Damien. Damien appeared to be all dark and brooding while Felicity is trying to live her life the best she knows how and on her own. Although I did like the two main characters, there wasn’t much depth to them, the characters seemed a lacking not just in their personal lives that they were attempting to live, but also in their pasts. Both of their families are apart of the fantasy world, but we only get glimpses into those worlds, enough information to make sure the reader understood what was going on and why.

Another reason for the 3.5 rating was the sex scenes. With the book only being 188 pages or so long, I felt like there was a lot of sexual scenes and thoughts that were kind of thrown in. I am not one to turn down a hot book, but for me, it almost seemed a little forced.

There are four books in this series, I’m glad this book didn’t end in a cliffhanger. I am not sure I would’ve been eager to pick up the next in the series. I might try to read the next book sometime in the future, maybe I’ll have a different outlook on the overall story.

Review

Anaea, a young lady that has been put to the test both mentally, emotionally and physically. Her body is giving out on her, she was diagnosed with cancer and it has reached its most severe stage, her husband has chosen to leave for another woman, and she has lost her job. During Anaea’s last moments of her life as she knew it, she stands on a bridge contemplating the plunge beneath her or the years, months, weeks or days she may have left to live with her body breaking down before her own eyes. It is during this moment that she is interrupted by a stranger, a stranger who appears to be trying to help her. All the while there is someone after this stranger, and before the attacker is able to finish off the stranger, he grabs hold of Anaea and they plunge down into the icy waters below. During that fall the stranger, known as Hunter transfers from his body to hers.

Hunter seemed like a nice guy stopping to help someone who appeared to be in trouble, but we soon find out that he is anything but a simple nice guy. Hunter has used his dragon powers to transfer his spirit into Anaea’s body to rid himself of the damaged body he was in.

From that moment on, their lives are being lived within the same body. Both of them trying to control the body they are residing in while Hunter is trying to get back to his people the safest way possible, while Anaea is trying to grasp what is happening to her, and who it is that has taken up board and room inside of her mind.

This book was a refreshing take on dragons. I loved reading the struggle between the two characters as they tried to survive one another. The old-time feel when the author thrusts us into a different time period, kept everything so fresh with every detail. C.I. Black hand me wishing for things to work out even when the two shared the same body, I am looking forward to reading more by Black.

Have you ever read anything by C.I. Black, if so please let me know. Until next time readers, be sure to Read THS!

Stepbrothers Rules Review

Stepbrothers Rules by Renee Rose

Published:  December 2015

Genre: Romance

E-book: 111 pages

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Summary

LuAnn’s had a crush on her older, rebellious stepbrother since the year he lived with them—his last year of high school. Now, four weeks before graduating from Sarah Wharton Women’s College, she’s been kicked out for having boys in her dormitory, and he’s the one who shows up to collect her. With her parents away in Europe, he brings her to his place, because leaving a young woman unchaperoned isn’t done in 1957.

Brad makes it clear she is not to emulate the wild behavior of his youth, and he starts things out with a long, bare-bottomed punishment. Soon, though, he discovers his stepsister is all grown up, and having her under his authority makes her a temptation too delicious to resist. Before long, he’s strayed way past what is acceptable, turning her into his little girl and bringing her to the peaks of pleasure during her numerous punishments. LuAnn brings out the dominant side of him, but with it comes the desire to take care of her and nurture the sweet innocence she’s been trying to cover up. He wants her for keeps, which means risking their parents’ disapproval and leaving his rebellious side behind forever.

Publisher’s Note: The book contains spanking, elements of ageplay and graphic sexual scenes. If such content offends you, please do not buy this book.

Review

Let me first start with the fact that I love the period this story took place in was what drew me to start flipping pages. This is a first for me, reading something taking place in the ’50s that weren’t related to school research. I will admit I did like the classic hints that were present, the updos, the classic attire and the words used were spot on and added to the story.

Brad has to go to school and pick up his little stepsister that he hasn’t seen for years. When he first lays his eyes on her, he sees that she is not the same 13 year old when he’d last seen her. With these two in close proximate and no parents in sight, Brad takes it upon himself to discipline LuAnn the best he knows how. The creativeness of the writing and the hotness between LuAnn and Brad was what kept me genuinely interested and kept the pages turning. The heat that came from every page turn was extreme, and I will be reading more from this author.

Too Easy (She Asked for It #.5) by Willow WInters

Too Easy (She Asked for It) by Willow Winters

Genre: Contemporary

E-book Pages: 240

Audiobook: 7hrs 21min

Rating:

Amazon

WHORE, SLUT, AN EASY LAY… I’VE BEEN CALLED A LOT OF THINGS.

It turns me on most when a man says it while he’s taking me from behind.

People say there’s a reason I am the way I am.
And sure, some stuff happened to me.
Some messed up sh*t I’d never wish on anyone.
But I’ve been like this long before that night.

That’s not what this story’s about, though.
You think you know? You don’t know a thing.
Let’s start from the beginning, all about how I asked for it.

~Goodreads~

Review

This book, oh my! I will say I wasn’t too fond of the title when I first read it, but it was obscure enough to intrigue me and push me to read the first couple of pages. The title alone can make you not want to move forward, but I encourage you to pick this one up, Willow Winters did a fantastic job with the storytelling.

I will try to explain my love for this start of the series without spoiling it for you guys. The darkness sets you up to feel so much more, there’s love, lust, anger, involving almost all of human emotion between these two characters. It is such a beautiful thing to see two people that have been genuinely hurt and wronged come together to build one another up to be greater than before. Isn’t that what we all want in life? For someone to care enough about us and know about all of our screw ups, but still, love us for us.

Hopefully, that wasn’t much of a spoiler for you, just now that the title is not always what it seems.

Weekly Re-Cap 12/30/18

The new year brings new resolutions, so here I am taking a shot at reporting what books I’ve read throughout the week and what books I’m currently reading. What books were you able to get through, and what are you trying to finish this upcoming week?

Currently Reading

she who fights monsters

As you see above, I am apparently starting off this year with a specific series, I came across book 1.5 first and read that when I noticed that I started reading them out of order. I had to backtrack and read book 1 which really tied things together for me, so here’s to book 2 and so on, hopefully, next weeks update will look similar.

2018 Wrap-up

Well, Happy New Year readers, here is my first ever wrap-up, bringing you my reading life thanks to Goodreads, enjoy!

20190102_1215222966139468131104387.jpg

After reviewing all of my reviews I wrote this year based on the books I read this year, it appears that I didn’t do as well as I’d thought. Looks like I still need to write 67 book reviews on the books I completed last year alone. Which means only 6 of my reviews pertained to the year 2018, and some of those reviews were from reading arcs. Counting everything out and realizing that my review goals were way up there and I was nowhere close to obtaining them sucks, but hey we all have to start somewhere.

Until next time readers, remember to keep reading, and attempting to be the best you can be.

 

2019 Bookish Goals

Well, Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful closing of 2018, and are excited as I am about getting 2019 off to a great start. For my personal goals this year I’ve set the bar high, but I always say I’m working on my life every day and trying to push for bigger and better things. So here’s to my bookish goals for 2019;

  • Read 100 books
  • Read 10 physical books
  • Read 1 History Book
  • Read 1 Business Book
  • Read 1 book on Writing Novels
  • Keep up with all the books, read or attempting to read on Goodreads
  • Read at least 10 books from my TBR list
  • Participate in 1 read-a-thon
  • Listen to 12 new audiobooks
  • Write reviews on all books read this year, and finish reviews from last year. (This is an apparent difficulty of mine, but here I go attempting to get better.)

Rum & Coke 

Not everything goes as planned …

Vincent Reed always believed he’d play professional volleyball in the Olympics, but when he’s injured his sophomore year of college, his dreams are crushed and he loses his scholarship. Instead of dropping out of school, Vinny began working as a male escort to pay for his education and fulfill his new dream of teaching children. Enjoying the life of luxury and travel, Vinny continues moonlighting as a male escort after graduation. He has everything he could ever need.

Everything happens for a reason …

Teresa Stewart never planned to get pregnant before she was married. She also didn’t plan for the father of her baby to die in combat before she could even tell him the news. Struggling to feed herself and her son, Colton, Tessa moves to Las Vegas where she hopes the cost of living will be cheaper and she’ll find a job in a popular hotel. But finding a job isn’t easy for Tessa, and a neighbor soon convinces her that stripping is the best way to make the money she needs to provide for her small family. All of life’s puzzle pieces are starting to come together, but Tessa knows something is still missing.

They say best friends make the best lovers …

At a bachelor party for his co-worker, Vinny meets Tessa. The sexual attraction is undeniable, but they each have something holding them back from moving forward. They grow even closer when Vinny becomes Colton’s teacher, and it seems as though all the pieces are finally falling into place.

However, sometimes the best-laid plans turn to hell …

Because murder will change everything.

I loved every amazing word of this book. It’s got all the right moves to captivate your attention and wanting to read it like crazy to see what happens next.” – Goodreads ARC Review

Across the Horizon ~Release Day~

AcrosstheHorizon_availnowbanner.jpg

Release Day – DEC 6, 2018

“Sometimes love happens when you least expect it.” That was what my husband’s mistress told me the day I found out about their affair.

I didn’t believe it until five minutes later when mouth-watering celebrity chef Tanner Reese walked up, tossed his arm around my shoulders, and told my cheating husband to take a hike.

Tanner and I couldn’t have been more different. He spent his weekends at clubs, rubbing elbows with fellow A-listers. I spent mine in yoga pants with cheese boards and a glass of wine—or six.

Our relationship shouldn’t have worked, but it did. That is until Tanner proved to me that even though love happens when you least expect it…

So does heartbreak.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,

I wanted to come in later in the evening to try and wrap up Thanksgiving day. I was thinking of starting with a history lesson, but as adults, I think we all know what really went down. With that being said, I hope everyone who celebrates this time with family and friends enjoyed their day. I hope you are all fat full, as much as I am.

Happy Thanksgiving

Carved Review

Carved (The ROad to Hell Series Book 2) by Brenda K. Davies

Published: October 2016

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Summary

River
As the perilous journey across a country I’d long thought destroyed begins, I don’t know who I am anymore or what I’m becoming. My abilities grow stronger with each passing day, as does the fear of what comes next. All I know is that I will do anything to avoid becoming like Lucifer, and to protect those I love, even if that means protecting them from me.

Kobal
No matter what it takes, I will keep River safe, even if my actions end up driving a wedge between us. River is mine to protect, no matter how hard that might be to do now that our journey has begun. I won’t stop until Lucifer is destroyed, won’t stop until I claim my throne, and she will be by my side when I do. It’s all just a matter of keeping her alive until then.

There are four books in this paranormal romance series which is now complete. Not all things will be resolved in this book. Due to sexual content, violence, and language, this book is recommended for listeners 18+ years of age.

~Amazon~

Review

Carved, picks-up right where Good Intentions left off. River and Kobal’s relationship is just a wishy-washy as it was in the first book. One second they’re hot and all over each other and the next second one of them is somehow offending the other, I guess they have a normal-ish relationship. I am happy that this isn’t just a power couple that is completely head over heels in love with one another. It makes everything very refreshing to see a normal type of relationship, as normal as a relationship can be when one is a human, and the other is from hell.

River has been working on her craft, a wondrous gift from her dad, Lucifer. With River working hard to perfect her abilities, she’s working even harder at trying to save herself from becoming like her father. Alongside a group of abled humans who have ranked high among the classes in the camp and Kobal along with his companions, it shows just how when the time comes everyone can work together, we’d hope. I enjoy seeing both River and Kobal working hard to accomplish one main goal, but at times I felt that the story could’ve moved along a little faster.

If anyone checks out the story, let me know if you have the same feelings as I did. From the normal like relationships to the trust, they have to have with one another during post-apocalyptic times, down to the heartfelt moments gives you a warming feeling, and makes you believe everything will work out perfectly fine, only the next book will tell.


Thanks for stopping by to check my review on Carved by Brenda K. Davies. Until next time, be sure to Read THS!
