ARC Review - Between Dawn And Dusk: A Prequel Between Dawn And Dusk Book 1 by Jamie Schlosser!

Between Dawn and Dusk: A Prequel (Between Dawn and Dusk Book 1)


BLURB:

I’ve got a problem. A big muscly problem, with icy blue eyes, long dark hair, and tight leather pants.

Keryth is the Night Realm king. My father’s greatest enemy. And my fated mate.

It isn’t easy being a fae princess of the Day Realm. Our kingdom has suffered hardships, but if my father won’t approve of the mating bond with Keryth, they’ll be putting another body in a casket—mine. If we’re kept apart, we’ll both die. Not to be dramatic or anything. Destiny just doesn’t like to be denied, and our sanity will wither away if we don’t give in.

Too bad my father doesn’t care about that. His solution is to lock me away forever.

When Keryth comes to rescue me, I know we can take on anything as long as we’re together. But old rivalries die hard, and the past sins of our families come back to haunt us, affecting our future and the ones we love the most. 

MY REVIEW:

I wasn't prepared at all for the awesomeness Jamie Schlosser bestowed on me with her prequel to her newest series featuring fae! Between Dawn and Dusk is an EXHILARATING  and SEXY PNR that awed and delighted and surprised me. 

The fae worlds are colorful and enchanting and the fae with all their different abilities and personalities left me speechless and on the edge of my seat! Keryth and Zella were sensational characters. Both were endearing and unique and I loved their bond! The heat level was set to SCORCHING HOT and their personalities balanced each other out beautifully. They were completely and heart-meltingly sigh worthy! This fae series has me CAPTIVATED and I can't freaking wait for The Fae King's Curse! 

Between Dawn And Dusk gets a MIND BLOWING FIVE EXHILARATING STARS!

I’ve got a problem. A big muscly problem, with icy blue eyes, long dark hair, and tight leather pants.
Keryth is the Night Realm king. My father’s greatest enemy. And my fated mate.
It isn’t easy being a fae princess of the Day Realm.

When I pulled Kirian from the icy waters of the creek behind my house, we were just twelve years old. As he looked in my direction with unseeing lavender eyes, I quickly realized our age was just about the only thing we had in common. He spoke with an accent, he had pointy ears, and he was so beautiful it made my heart ache. Oh, and he claimed to be a fae prince cursed by witches who stole his sight.
I thought he was crazy from hypothermia. Turns out, he wasn’t, and for some reason he keeps coming back. But a day in my world is a year in his. Every time I see him, he’s older. Wiser. Hotter.
Over the past six years, I’ve tried not to fall in love with him because the terms of the curse are clear: If he doesn’t wait for his fated mate in all ways, including an innocent (or not-so-innocent) kiss, he’ll be blind forever.
So when Kirian kisses me and pulls me through the portal to his realm, I make it my mission to do some damage control. It’d be a whole lot easier if he wasn’t determined to marry me... And if someone wasn’t trying to murder me every step of the way.





Jamie Schlosser writes steamy new adult romance and romantic comedy. When she isn't creating perfect book boyfriends, she's a stay-at-home mom to her two wonderful kids. She believes reading is a great escape, otters are the best animal, and nothing is more satisfying than a happily-ever-after ending.

ARC Review - Her Tempting Protector: Navy SEAl Team (Night Storm Book 2) by Caitlyn O' Leary!

Her Tempting Protector: Navy SEAL Team (Night Storm Book 2)

BLURB:

CAN HE GET THEM TO SAFETY IN TIME?


Navy SEAL, Cullen Lyons, knew the moment he saw Dr. Carys Adams treating her patients in an African war zone that she was stubborn, selfless and extraordinary. Ignoring the danger surrounding her, she concentrated on keeping the young mother and newborn alive. Now it was Cullen’s job to evade the brutal rebel forces who had targeted Carys and the young family and get them to safety.


HOW WILL THEY SURVIVE?


Carys knows that a three day journey to Khartoum could kill her patients, but staying in hiding would sign their death warrant. She had never met a man like Cullen Lyons, every instinct told her that she could trust him, that she had finally found someone she could lean on, but what if she was wrong? Was he really the hero he seemed to be?

MY REVIEW:

Yet again, Caitlyn O'Leary brings us readers a story filled with intrigue, intense and edge-of-your-seat danger and a romance that WILL make the knees weak and the heart to melt like chocolate on hot pavement!  

Cullen and Carys made a great couple. They both had a passion to protect the people under their care. The mind bending action kept me on my toes and wanting to chew my nails while the heartfelt romance made me swoon happily. Caitlyn is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. Her stories always grab my attention and keep me happy, edgy and there is always one amazing HEA. Her Tempting Protector is a well written story with a little bit of everything a reader could want. 

Her Tempting Protector gets a SATISFACTORY FIVE SHOOTING STARS! 

ARC Review - Broken (Deep Ops #3) by Rebecca Zanetti!

Broken (Deep Ops #3)


BLURB:

Dangerous:  Former Navy SEAL Clarence Wolfe’s unit was taken out with a land mine. Injured and devastated, he hasn’t been quite right since. Worse, the tragedy was no accident. All Wolfe wants now is to take down the man responsible. In the meantime, he’s good with being the muscle for the Deep Ops team—and leading a steamy no-strings-attached personal life. Until one intriguing woman changes everything . . .
 
Determined:   Reporter Dana Mulberry is on a mission to avenge the death of a fellow journalist. She’s finally hot on a trail—right to a sex club—where she runs into . . . Wolfe? It seems both their leads have led to the same spot. To keep from blowing their covers, they’ll have to at least pretend to have a little fun. Trouble is, they genuinely like each other. And that’s way too risky for Wolfe, especially when, to his surprise, Dana agrees . . .
 
Complicated:   Drawn to each other in ways they can’t understand, Wolfe and Dana keep it professional—until they’re shot at one night. And when their adventures land them both at the heart of corruption in D.C.—and at odds in their missions—they’ll have to dig deeper than ever to succeed in their quests—and with each other . . . 

MY REVIEW:

Broken is a firestorm of passion, danger, humor, and sizzling hot romance! It was everything I was hoping for and so much more.

This book had a lot of spectacular action and some good heart to go with the many twists and turns. I was also pleasantly surprised with Wolfe. He was so cool, charming, 100% alpha and had a way about him that made him irresistible. Yes, he was downright sexy and fierce, but he was also smart and caring and protective of those he considered family. Dana was also a very likable character too! She was sharp and smart and sweet and cared deeply for those around her. Wolfe and Dana's chemistry was snap, crackling and popping throughout the book and in between the danger. I very much enjoyed and got a big thrill watching the sparks fly and the humor....my goodness, there was enough humor and funny moments to put a genuine smile on my face. This book had it ALL and I honestly just can't get enough of these Deep Ops guys and gals!

Broken gets a DANGEROUS FIVE RED HOT STARS! Rebecca Zanetti keeps  me coming back BEGGING for more.

ARC Review - Fully Loaded (Pretty Thieves #2) by Samantha Keith

Fully Loaded (Pretty Thieves #2)


BLURB:

Dani Metcalf just recovered from a brutal kidnapping, but even that can’t turn her away from the life of crime she’s always known. Stealing a file from a world-renowned Genevan chemist for a rival company is a walk in the park. But when her apartment door goes up in gunfire, she realizes she’s in over her head. Her scheming ex is the last person she wants to call, but his calm, quick-to-action persona is what she needs to survive the night.


Brock Wyler is still reeling from Dani’s distance. He helped save her life, yet she refuses to end their feud. A panicked Dani calls from Geneva, and he gets on the next plane. Someone is out to kill her and when she’s labeled as a terrorist in the news, Brock can’t stay away.

The formula she stole isn’t just valuable, it’s deadly enough to wipe out civilization. With every minute alive being a gift, the heat between them becomes impossible to control—and just as lethal as the formula they possess. 


MY REVIEW:

Fully Loaded was a masterpiece of heart stopping action, mind blowing romance, likable characters and an unpredictable storyline!

I was blown away by this book. It was captivating and intense and loaded with intrigue and passion and tension that had me wanting to chew my nails. I was so focused on this book I swear it felt like I forgot to breath at times. Samantha Keith had me ALL in with Fully Loaded!

Fully Loaded gets an UNSTOPPABLE FIVE MAGNIFICENT STARS!


Crossing The Line (Wilde Ways #7) by Cynthia Eden!

Crossing The Line (Wilde Ways, #7)


BLURB:

Your partner knows your secrets. Your partner watches your back. Your partner…is the star of your fantasies?


Linc Dalton knows that he is supposed to keep his hands off his partner…well, unless he is protecting Blair Kincaid’s gorgeous body. She’s his partner at the elite protection firm of Wilde Securities. Their job is to guard the wealthy, to take out the bad guys, and to generally kick butt. He trusts Blair completely. He admires her strength and courage. And he wants her desperately. Not that he ever intends to let her know that fun fact. Instead, he keeps up a fake persona where he offers her jokes and flippant comments.



Blair is straight-laced. By-the-book. Always by-the-book. Linc likes things a bit wilder. Control isn’t his strong suit, but, with a massive effort, he’s kept his control in place around Blair. With Blair, he’s on his best behavior…



Until he isn’t. Until they get a new case. Until they have to go undercover as lovers.



And, suddenly, Linc has to put his hands on Blair’s delectable form. He has to stay very close to her. Has to whisper sweet promises to her. Has to share the same bed with Blair. It’s just a cover story. He’s not really in love with her…except, one night, they cross the line. Stop being pretend lovers and become the real thing. Once Linc has Blair, there is no turning back. Giving her up isn’t an option.



She broke the rules, and for once, Blair doesn’t care.



She shouldn’t have done it. Blair knows she shouldn’t have let the desire she feels for Linc sweep her away. Yet she did, and now, everything has changed. She wants him more than ever before, and, surely, they can do this, right? They can be lovers and partners and still get the job done. As long as emotions don’t get involved, everything is fine.



Until it isn’t. Until Blair and Linc are targeted as prey. Until all of their emotions are out of control.



When their cover is blown, Blair and Linc find themselves being hunted. It’s a race for survival, and Blair knows that Linc has her back. Just as she has his. Prepare yourself…things are about to get wild.



The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been, and Linc and Blair are about to turn things red-hot. Molten level. Watch out…you just might get burned.




Author’s Note: These partners have been on a slow-burn path, but their desire is about to ignite into an inferno they can’t control. You ready to steam up the pages? We’ve got action, thrills, romance…and a hero who is funny, sexy, and willing to do anything to claim his lady. CROSSING THE LINE is a complete, stand-alone novel. Guaranteed happily-ever-after (though reaching that ending will sure be fun…and a wee bit 
dangerous). Enjoy!

MY REVIEW:

Oh gawd! Blair and Lunch certainly made my top 5 favorite book couple so far this year. 

Crossing The Line was an epic, dangerous, passionate and suspenseful story that instantly made my heart race, melt and had me flipping the pages. I didn't want to put the book down nor did I want to miss anything. 

Linc was full of surprises. He was charming in his own way, all alpha and 100% determined to be there for Blair and protect her, even when she was determined to do things on her own. And Blair is a definite likable heroine who certainly knows how to take care of herself. These two had amazing and heartfelt chemistry that was impossible to resist. I adored Linc and Blair's story!

Crossing lines gets an UNFORGETTABLE FIVE PASSIONATE STARS! You can't beat a romantic suspense book by Cynthia Eden. No way, no how!
