NetGalley eARC Review - Rebel's Karma (Dark Protectors #13) by Rebecca Zanetti!

 Rebel's Karma (Dark Protectors, #13)


There’s no denying destiny . . .

For too long, Benjamin Reese has masked his deadly skills and temper with loyalty and humor. A vampire-demon hybrid, he fiercely protects his family, guards his brothers, and destroys the enemy without mercy. But when he discovers one fragile, beautiful blonde—a woman once mated to a Kurjan, no less—every primal instinct he has buried for centuries roars to life. With the mating mark she roused on his hand entwining their fates, no one will prevent him from keeping her safe and making her his, forever . . .

Or desire . . .

Karma wishes she could remember her last name. Or if she even had one. All she has in this confusing new world is a desperate duty to save the innocent. That means destroying the dark, dangerous, and desirable Benjamin Reese and everything he loves—an impossible task even before his touch arouses a passionate hunger she can’t afford. She’s certain a deadly enemy watches her every move, but it’s not until Benny kisses her that she tastes true danger…


Benny sure tuned out to be one of the most loved, funny, sweet, crazy and irresistible heroes EVER in the Dark Protector world!

I wasn't expecting to love Benny as much as I did, but I really couldn't resist him. There was something almost easy going and kind behind his uniquely crazy and entertaining personality that I adored completely! And I think Karma brought out the very best in him even more so. I was equally charmed by Karma as I was for Benny too. She was brave, smart, honest and perfect. If there was a complete and utter perfect and kind heroine ever to be born in a book, Karma is it! Karma and Benny as a mated pair make me insanely happy.

Rebel's Karma was intense, amusing, sexy and full of danger and humor. It was fascinating seeing the inner Kurjan and Cyst territory from Karma's perspective. I feel we get a really good look at how dangerous and deadly they are and how important the Seven is to taking them and Ulric down for good. I am in awe of this book and am so looking forward to Sam's and Garrett's stories! These books are truly fantastic!

Rebel's Karma gets a WILDLY CRAZY AND ENTERTAINING FIVE BLAZING HOT STARS! If there is one book in the whole Dark Protector series that should be praised again and again, it should be Rebel's Karma. This book was AWESOME!

ARC Review - The Fae King's Prize (Between Dawn & Dusk Book 3) by Jamie Schlosser!

 The Fae King's Prize (Between Dawn and Dusk #3)


When I wake up at a female auction in a world I don’t recognize, all I can think about is getting back home to Texas. I want absolutely nothing to do with a realm called Valora, magic, faeries, or being sold to the highest bidder.

But the Day Realm king has other plans.

Zander says I’m his fated mate. I don’t believe him. That doesn’t stop him from tricking me into marrying him, though. It doesn’t matter if I argue or run—he won’t let me go.

I should hate him. Instead, I find myself ridiculously attracted to the stubborn, broody man. Sometimes he terrifies me, so I don’t know why his rare smiles give me warm tingles or why his arms make me feel safe.

Everything about Valora is confusing, but after just a short time here, I realize something—this place is full of dangers that are way more frightening than my new husband, and staying by his side just might be my only option.



Sexy to the max, passionate beyond words and with one jaw dropping adventure after another in between bouts of swoon worthy romance, The Fae King's Prize is 100% spectacular! Zander is so broody and sexy that he made me equal parts infuriated and hot and bothered. He was like what catnip is to cats to me, IRRISTIBLE! And I found his beast form to be absolutely awesome and incredible. And Maelyn is so sweet and lovable and I loved her right off the bat. She was such a brave and compassionate and strong willed heroine I couldn't help but think she really was King Zander's perfect match. 

Zander and Mae's story was sensational. I loved how Zander found Mae and what he did to make her his. And his broody and possessive ways was hotter than anything I could of expected. The action and danger sped up my heart but seeing the incredible romance bloom slow and hot was my favorite part. And I REALLY enjoyed the fact that we got more....story than sex. Don't get me wrong I love some sexy times, but sometimes I feel like there is too much sex in romances anymore than actual story. So I think Jamie did a absolute AMAZING job with writing a romance that had more story with some sexy times here and there instead of every other chapter. But oh my, those sexy times were sure filled with some MAJOR heat!  Zander turned out to be quite a dominant hero. I LOVED IT! 

The Fae King's Prize gets a SHOW STOPPING 10 SHOOTING STARS! This book has it all and I want to shout it out to the rooftops!

ARC Review - Beyond The Black Mist (The Familiar Curse # 2) by C.L. Bright!

 Beyond the Black Mist (The Familiar Curse #2)


Star-crossed lovers separated by magic and fate.

Juliet and Dante’s tale continues.

After spending much of her life fighting her destiny, Juliet is finally ready to take her place as the future leader of the Heathergate Refuge. No matter what it takes, she will return to her home. Only one thing matters more—finding Dante.

With the help of new allies, each tries to make their way back to each other, but nothing is going according to plan.

Their enemies are closing in.

Will Dante and Juliet find happiness?

Can Juliet make it back to her home in time to stop her treacherous stepmother?


I love following Juliet and Dante so much! This world is not only fascinating and unique but enchanting and full of wonder and mystery too. 

The second Familiar Curse novel starts pretty much where the first book left off.  Beyond The Black Mist got more intriguing and Juliet and Dante's love for each other felt innocent, real, passionate and was quite amazing. I loved watching these two fight for each other and enjoyed them get through the danger that lurked throughout the story. The plot definitely thickened within this second book and I really got into it big time. Everything about this series is stealing my heart and I know once I finish it, I will have to buy these books in paperback because the love I have for this stunning new series is crazy high! I can't wait to find out how things turn out in the third book!

ARC Review - Sinning With Mia (Deluded Serenity #1) by Cassandra Lawson!

 Sinning with Mia (Deluded Serenity #1)


Mia is a mistake I can’t resist repeating.

Our one night together played out like some overdone cliché.

The only two single people at a wedding, we practically fell into bed. I can’t even blame it on alcohol since neither of us had been drinking.

It was all Mia. I was drunk on her laughter, her scent, and her taste.

Months later, I still want her, but that’s not going to happen. We both agreed there would be no repeat of that night. Mia is my friend, and nothing more.

One phone call changes everything.

I’ve rescued Mia from bad dates before, but never by pretending to be her boyfriend at a sex club.

How much temptation can a man take?

After spending months acting like there is nothing more than friendship between us, I’m done pretending. I have six weeks until my band leaves for our first big tour to convince Mia’s she mine.

I plan to win her over one seduction at a time.


Sinning With Mia was a good story with heat, humor, lightness with fun banter and a romance that made my heart happy! 

I was excited for this book when it hit my kindle and for good reason! Mia and Lex are so cute together. The bedroom scenes were equal parts fun and super hot. I loved the way the story was light and fun. It didn't feel overly serious and wasn't a downer. It is the kind of book I think every reader will find entertaining and feel happy about reading. The BDSM elements made it sexier too and heightened my pleasure in the story a couple of notches. Mia and Lex are a lovable couple and I can easily picture them in real life making their friends smile. It really was a great read!

ARC Review - Adverse Possession (Anna Albertini Files #3) by Rebecca Zanetti

 Adverse Possession (The Anna Albertini Files, #3)


The plural form of Nemesis is Nemeses

Anna Albertini never thought she’d have to look up the plural form of nemesis. In fact, she never thought she’d have one, much less three. But as she and her new partner try to make a go of their fledgling law firm, enemies come from every direction.

First, there’s a newspaper reporter trying to make a name for herself by dogging Anna’s every move. Second, there’s a lawyer on the opposite side of every case who just doesn’t like Anna. And third, there’s Aiden Devlin’s ex-girlfriend, who decides to descend upon the sleeping Idaho town like a bird of prey. It’s too bad she’s discovered dead…after finding herself on the wrong end of a potato gun, putting Anna top of the suspect list.

Anna deals with every day as it arrives while juggling her developing relationship with Aiden, trying to pay her rent by finding at least one client who pays, and finally by partnering with her Nonna Albertini in the world’s most chaotic plan to match-make her sister with the Elk County’s prosecuting attorney, Nick Basanelli. It’s a good thing Anna has learned to thrive in chaos.


An unbelievably exciting third book in my favorite Anna Albertini Files series! Adverse Possession has so much to offer: My favorite fictional lawyer, a swoon AND drool worthy hero, a twisty, adventurous, action packed plot and great banter and a fantastic amount of humor that leaves a reader either grinning, giggling or both!

Anna is seriously entertaining and she gets into so much trouble without even trying and I loved it! All the mind blowing action and danger mixed with sexy devilish Aiden coming to the rescue and Anna's sweetness and smarts and the way she goes through life with her chin held high even after danger strikes makes her even more likable in my book. Add in my curiosity and intrigue with a couple of her cousins, her sisters, and Nick and I think I will forever be hooked on this series, even long after I finish each and every one as they get released. This is a special series that I love with every fiber of my being. A top, a top FIVE favorite series for certain!

Adverse Possession gets an EXHILARATING FIVE GOLD STARS! I tried to make this book last I really REALLY did. It was AMAZING!

The Mind Witch Release with ARC Review!

 Release Date: March 1

My plan was simple and…mostly ordinary. Finish my PhD. Teach Celtic mythology in a tiny college town. Stop hearing the thoughts and feelings of every person I happened to meet. 

As a wayward seer just coming into her powers, I couldn’t avoid the last one. 

But the first two were just within my reach when sorcerer-particle physicist Jonathan Lynch appeared one chilly winter morning along two other shocks: 

The death of my grandmother, the most powerful seer in a generation;
And the mysterious box she protected, which just might have belonged to Pandora.

Suddenly I was tangled in a secret that had been unraveling for years, and my unruly talents and complicated inheritance were at the heart of it all. 

Ordinary life would have to wait. 

The extraordinary was coming for me after all.

A hot debut series in the tradition of Deborah Harkness, Diana Gabaldon, and Anne Rice weaves magic, scholarship, and romance for readers who crave a little adventure.


The Mind Witch was a intriguing, mysterious, enchanting and impossible to ignore story featuring so many exciting elements with magic and seers. This book reminded me so much of The Discovery Of Witches by Deborah Harkness except this story was more appealing and way more easier to follow.

Nicole Demery is off too a great start with this debut story. I felt like this book contained a good mix of realistic-ness and fiction. It felt....magical and completely unique. I thoroughly liked it and can't wait for the next one!
