My Review

Blurb:
True love is a myth.
A trick.
A way to subdue the heroine and take everything from her.

Winter Snow
My “true love” conspired with my stepmother to have me killed and stole my throne.

But they failed.

I’ve been in hiding and refining my vengeance. I’m no longer the damsel they mistook me for once upon a time. I’m coming for them. And my kingdom, too.

Who needs dwarves when you have wolves?
Who needs blades when you have arrows?

My name used to be Snow. Now they call me the Winter’s Arrow. Because I’m here to destroy them all.

Kazek Flor
I’m not a prince but an Alpha. And I take what I want, when I want it. So when I found an Omega princess dying in the woods, I took her and made her mine.

I’ll train her. Embolden her. Help her seek the vengeance she is owed. Then, together, we’ll take down Winter Sector and the wicked Queen of Mirrors.

Run fast, little wolves.
Your former princess is about to rise with me by her side.
And we’re thirsting for your blood.

Excerpt:
“Help,” I begged. “Need… help.”
Kazek frowned at me. “You’re going into estrus, Snow. I’m planning to help you.”
I shook my head, a whine catching in my throat. He didn’t understand. “No knot.” I couldn’t accept it. This had to be part of Vanessa’s plan, to make an Alpha think he could fuck me fully.
She’d planned to entice Enrique with this spell, to force him to knot me.
That was what she’d meant by having methods to induce the sensations. She’d cast some wicked enchantment that convinced Alphas I could handle them in a rut.
Tears collected in my eyes.
I’d escaped her clutches, only to fall into the hands of someone so much worse—an Alpha driven by need.
She’d won.
After all that… she’d still won.
I crumpled against him, sobbing beneath the crushing emotions of betrayal and defeat. And worse, arousal.
Because I wanted him.

Winter’s Arrow by Lexi C. Foss–Review

Winter’s Arrow was a first for me from this author. It is not usually my genre of choice, but I was intrigued with the blurb, basically Snow White and her seven guardians mix with a shifter romance. I generally like shifter stories, but this one was also set in a post-apocalyptic, dystopian future with elements of shifters and zombies. Generally stating, not my favorite type of read, but I soldiered on.

The world is now set up as sectors and Snow White, ahem, sorry, Snow Frost of Winter controls the winter sector. Long story short, Snow is engaged to be married, but finds out the night before that things are not as they should be. To save herself, she must leave her land.

Enter her wolf in shiny fur, Alpha Kazek of Norse sector. With this newfound Alpha, Winter realizes who she truly is. She is the spunky, sarcastic Omega to her Alpha. She finds her natural submissiveness.

Winter’s Arrow will not leave you wanting more, in the standpoint of more action or more romance, because it was jam packed with both. It had so many layers that it would give a peeling onion a run for its money.

The Hunter by LJ Shen–New Release

Hunter - RB banner

“This is LJ Shen at her wittiest, steamiest, heart-aching best!”

–Kennedy Ryan, Wall Street Journal bestselling author

The Hunter, an all-new scorching hot contemporary romance from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen is available now!

Here’s my 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ review! Enjoy!

HUNTER_FINAL 4.35.30 PM

Boston’s debauched elite is going up in flames, and it’s the Fitzpatrick family that set it on fire.

Hunter

I didn’t mean to star in a sex tape, okay?

It was just one of those unexplainable things. Like Stonehenge, Police Academy 2, and morning glory clouds.

It just happened.

Now my ball-busting father is sentencing me to six months of celibacy, sobriety, and morbid boredom under the roof of Boston’s nerdiest girl alive, Sailor Brennan.

The virginal archer is supposed to babysit my ass while I learn to take my place in Royal Pipelines, my family’s oil company.

Little does she know, that’s not the only pipe I’ll be laying…

Sailor

I didn’t want this gig, okay?

But the deal was too sweet to walk away from.

I needed the public endorsement; Hunter needed a nanny.

Besides, what’s six months in the grand scheme of things?

It’s not like I’m in danger of falling in love with the appallingly gorgeous, charismatic gazillionaire who happens to be one of Boston’s most eligible bachelors.

No. I will remain immune to Hunter Fitzpatrick’s charm.

Even at the cost of losing everything I have.

Even at the cost of burning down his kingdom.

The Hunter by LJ Shen–Review

The Hunter, wow. The Hunter was immediately on my radar when I saw the early blurb. A new world called The Boston Belles, which included characters from previous books, such as Hunter Fitzpatrick himself, Troy Brennan, and Sparrow. Sign me up please!

Hunter Fitzpatrick is an enigma, an anomaly. Hunter is known as the ‘Royal Pipelines notorious playboy.’ Unfortunately for most he never downplayed all rumors circulating. It took one feisty redhead to scratch the surface and what she found was more than how he saw himself. Hunter is a dirty talking, flirting alpha a-hole. He is also caring, smart, witty, lacked focus and was lost.

Sailor Brennan could also be described as an enigma and an anomaly, just slightly different. She is a quiet girl, an archer with her sights aimed at the Olympics and a nerd. She lived for those quiet times all to herself but let’s not forget who her father is. Troy Brennan. When pushed, she has that fire, will not back down and can bust your balls in 0.3 seconds flat. I love Sailor. She is/has the potential to be, a kick a** lead. Despite having a solid goal in life, she is also lost and missing something. So, has Hunter found his next prey? I think both find the answer surprising.

I believe LJ Shen has just hit another milestone with her new, ‘Boston Belles’ series. Every character played their part beautifully in expanding our eyes to the world of a ‘reputable businessman’ to the 1% upper crust echelon. Hunter and Sailor together are electric together with fireworks that exuded from the pages.

I am saddened that Hunter and Sailor’s story has come to ‘The End’, although, there is a plethora of other book potentials Cillian, Sam, maybe even the Penrose sisters. I am in love and cannot wait for more, Boston’s Belles.

Blowback by Monica James–Review

The Monsters Within Duet deserves something special to be said about it. Quick refresher, I absolutely loved, adored and salivated for Bullseye. Ms. James wrote something exceptional with book one. So, the question is, ‘How do you follow up with such perfection of Bullseye?’ Simple. You write a kick*ss, soul encompassing, gut twisting, emotionally sucking book two. Welcome to Blowback.

Now, Blowback picks up right where it left off in Bullseye. The intensity, passion and of course, the dark and twisted all remain. Monica did a fantastic job of engulfing you into the dark, seedy, twisted underground of Detroit. It was easy to not only feel as if you were there, but to visualize the story happening around you almost as if you were experiencing everything in Virtual Reality.

Bull and Tiger are an intriguing pair of emotionally stunted individuals who have had to learn hard life lessons and most importantly, a human representation of yin yang. Each have issues, but one thing they do know is that a certain calm flows through them when they are together. They are electric and able to soar when they are together, yet when apart they fall flat and are left to keep the demons at bay the only way they know how. Bull and Tiger not only make an insane coupling, but they are the piece missing to make each other whole (with a little Fluffball thrown in😉).

Bull…Bull is still this fierce mastermind, enigmatic, anti-hero with thoughts of revenge. Lily is caring, kind and sees the best in people. She receives an awakening of sorts and then we get to see Tiger Lily at her fiercest. The things that she would do for the ones she loves made her strong, fierce and a true kick*ss heroine. I loved to see the expansion of her personality and the fierce heart she has inside.

Although, non-conventional, their love, friendship and relationship are what one dreams about. Who needs Prince Charming when you have the Black Knight riding through town to save not only his one true love, but the person who saved him?

I am completely addicted to Monica James and her writing style. Her heroes are broken yet fierce. The heroines seem to evolve and find themselves. Tiger completely fit the bill with her rough and tough tenacity, sweet nature and finally, her ferociousness. Bull and Tiger will be a couple that will not leave my mind very soon. I’ve laughed, cried, screamed, and pulled a tantrum having to step away from my kindle. Yet, overall, though, I loved. I loved fiercely with a consistent storyline, all plot holes and questions answered, characters that were so much more than one-dimensional and most importantly, I loved Bull, Tiger and Jordy. These characters will not leave my psyche for an exceptionally long time!! Congratulations, Ms. James, on a fabulous book!!
