Queen Takes Checkmate… The BEST for last, please don’t be the end…

I feel like I have been waiting for Queen Takes Checkmate by Joely Sue Burkhart my entire life. Okay, maybe that’s excessive but I feel like it’s been a long time. She is such a freaking talented writer I fall in love with every single character each and every time I read one of the books. Like how could I love these people anymore?! She makes it happen! This is book #5 in the ‘Their Vampire Queen’ series. It’s also the BEST book in the series. I’ve said that after I finish every book in this series, but just when you think Joely can’t top her last book she does. They.  Are. So. Fucking. Good. Oh! & let’s talk about that cover…. Gahhhhhh all the covers in this series are so freaking gorgeous. I mean they have to be… it’s Shara Fucking Isador. Last living descendant of Isis. SHE IS THE SHIT. Let’s get into it…..

Queen takes Checkmate

Find it here on Amazon!

See my review of the first book, Queen Takes Knights, here!

So we are back with Shara and all her guys. You know… Rik, Daire, Guillaume, Mehen, Xin, Itztli, Tlacel, Ezra, Nevarre, and Llewellyn. I literally love them all. We don’t know a huge amount about Llewellyn since he just joined but don’t worry. He’ll have a place in your heart soon. Anyways, Shara has just taken down New York’s Aima Queen, Keisha Skye. Not only did she take her down, she drained her. So now she is this disgusting pile of nasty on the floor. Defeating Keisha and her demon child Tanza, man that child was a thing of nightmares…. Bah… I swear I picture like the grudge girl and the ring girl mixed together. Eek. 😱

the grudge.gif the ring

Everyone is intact, and all seems to be well. Shara is of course internally freaking out because what the fuck just happened. She almost lost Rik to Tanza the freaky demon child, and everything could have went to hell in a hand-basket and she could have died. All her men could have died. It could have been disastrous. Luckily, it wasn’t because Shara Fucking Isador is a badass who ALWAYS kicks ass. I mean who else could completely drain a queen?! Shara Isador, the Queen of New York biatch. But defeating Keisha doesn’t mean that Shara and her men can just all reunite and have a sexy blood orgy does it?! Of course not.. There are some political ends that need to be tied up. Like Skye Tower is now Isador tower, badass ammirite?! All of Keisha’s Furies (what she called her Blood that consisted of all females), Sibs, and other vampire groupies have to be dealt with. So, Shara has to decide who to take on, who to set free, and who to kill.. PLUS, there is an ancient sun god mummified in the basement. No biggie… 😐

all hail.gif

Shara adds some Sibs to her team. Gwen, who’s Blood are guys from the round table *gasp * swoon*. As well as Carys, who has a badass owl that shits all over her 🤢 & has the power to determine the probably of things/actions. Things are looking pretty good. She has to kill some of the less savory characters that were into the super psychotic shit Keisha Skye was into. She also has to make a decision about this new guy she has taken in, Llewellyn. We don’t currently know a lot about him other than he used to be one of her mother’s Blood and that Keisha Skye kept him prisoner, cut out his eyes, and kept a bad over his head. I mean we already feel sorry for the poor fellow, plus he really stepped up with helping Shara defeat Keisha. Weird thing though, he used to have sex with her mom… Soooooo…. Yeah….

off with her head.gif

Now that Skye Isador Tower has been taken care of we should be able to get back to sexy time with the guys, right?! Well, kinda. We do have some suuuuper sexy scenes. Cuz I mean Joely knows how to write the sexiest scenes known to mankind. Then we also get a NEW Blood. I know what you are thinking, how the hell am I supposed to keep track of a NEW Blood?! There are so many. Well shut your trap, there are never too many 😉 This new Blood also has some qualities that separate her from the rest of the Blood… I know, you are intrigued…

blood sex.gif

Everything can’t be all sexy time though. I know, cue booing. They also have to get rid of Ra, the sun god who they’ve been trying to get rid of for a couple of books. Plus, he just recently tried to take Xochitl, Mayte’s daughter AKA Queen of Unicorns This bastard has gots to go. There are a lot of preparations that have to go into taking out Ra because he is a fucking God which means he is obviously hard to kill. Also, there was the deal made with the Goddess, Coatlicue, that in return for the cobra that will help kill Ra that one of Shara’s Blood must die. Dear. God. No. Please. So this whole time I am freaking out trying to figure out who Joely is going to kill off…. PLEASE JOELY, PLEASE DON’T *sob* 😭 

afraid

This book is so amazing. Like when I finished I didn’t know what to do with myself. How do you move on from something so perfect?! You don’t. You just don’t. So, now I have to decide whether to re-read this one of just go for the long haul and re-read the entire series again. It’s that damn good! Shara is a badass heroine that we all want in our lives. She isn’t whiny or easily pushed over. She is the Queen. She is Shara Fucking Isador. Her men are swoony, hilarious, adorable, badass, sexy, and every wonderful adjective you can think of. I honestly don’t know who I love more. Sometimes it’s Mehen because ahhhh who doesn’t love a stubborn dragon who is actually a softy. Then it’s Ezra because that sexy take no nonsense cursing like a sailor bear is just so fucking hot. Then there are Rik and Daire, the original two. So sexy, protective, and their dynamic with each other and Shara is just… Ah… Swoon. There are all amazing. ALL. This can’t be the last book.  It just can’t………… This won’t be the last book.

I’m swooning over here…. Wanna join?!

It doesn’t take much to get ‘Charmed by Them’… Swoon

I just finished another really amazing contemporary reverse harem romance! Who knew there were so many goodies out there in the contemporary genre?! WHO KNEW?! & why wasn’t I told?! Just kidding. I was probably told, but I’m stubborn and tend to stick to my ways. Well I’m glad I’ve decided to venture out because it lead me to find ‘Charmed by Them’ by Serena Akeroyd and lemme tell you… I’m charmed. Let’s. Get. Into. It. 😀 ❤

Charmed By Them

Find it on Amazon here!

First of all, I LOVE that the MC is a red head. There is not a lot of love for us red heads in the world. Seriously. I’ve been overjoyed lately seeing so many leading ladies in my books with red hair because I was a self-hating ginger growing up. Even though I still don’t classify myself as a ginger other people do, my hair is AUBURN. But whatever. Red heads have it rough. A guy I work with, let’s call him Harry, well he also has red hair and this is something we bond over. #gingersunite Well we were talking about how growing up people would tell us that we didn’t have a soul, why you ask? Because we have red hair of course. That or we would be told that we bathe in the blood of our enemies and other random shit. Kids are mean. Anyway, so when Harry was younger a girl wrote down on a piece of paper ‘Harry’s soul’ and gave it to him since being a redhead he didn’t possess a soul. THIS IS REAL SHIT. Rant over. I really do like my red hair now. I wouldn’t say I love it but I am more self-appreciative of myself. Plus, I got my red hair from my dad who has passed away so I feel like I should love it. I do. I’m getting there.

BACK TO THE STORY AT HAND. Charmed By Them. Awesome. Our main character’s name is Sascha Dubois which is a really sexy name. Sascha. Very swoonworthy. Well Sascha interviews for a position to oversee housekeeping duties at a home in England. A home filled with 5 very hot and very intelligent men. Like not just intelligent, freaking Big Bang Theory intelligent but they are all smoking and not in the cute nerdy way, in the holy damn break me off a piece of that way. She is gorgeous and uber smart as well so she of course lands the job, which is live-in of course, and starts working with all these men. I saw with instead of for because they really welcome her in like family. It’s freaking adorable.

suit.gif

Well you are sitting there thinking, okay so we got our hottie female main character and she is living in the house with 5 super sexy men. THIS IS WHERE IT HAPPENS. We know this is reverse harem. Let’s get to the goods. You will not be disappointed. Of course since these guys are super smart, super successful, and very dedicated to their different careers they don’t have a lot of time for dating. They also are very close to each other and living together has worked really well since they were in college. What are these men to do for love?! We all need love! Well this is where Sascha comes in.. One of the guys, Devon, is very into the idea of finding the perfect woman for them all to share. Let’s be honest all the guys are into the idea Devon is just more vocal about it. Well the unspoken leader of the bunch, Sean, warns Sascha about this after signing a NDA (nondisclosure agreement) but before she signs her employment contract. See it’s not skeevy. He just kind of brings up the idea and says that this isn’t what is expected of her and she doesn’t have to take the job but it’s just there. 

yuum.gif

Talk about an indecent proposal. Snort. Just kidding. These guys are smoking, we would all say yes. I feel like the part that appeals to a lot of women about the reverse harem genre is that A. you get to experience several different adorable swoonworthy relationships in one book. B. there is this feeling of the woman being completely taken care of because inevitably some area that one guy would be lacking in another guy in the ‘harem’ would pick up the slack. Plus, women overall are amazing and I don’t find it hard to believe that one woman could make 5 men happy. Like I said. Women are awesome. Girls rule, boys… Okay well it’s probably just me doing the drooling. Ha!

menage.gif

I really really really enjoyed this book. It isn’t horribly long and you fall in love with the MC and all five guys so fast. They are really amazing. I can’t wait to jump into the next book and get to know these guys more. Plus you know #gingerpower

SWOON WITH ME, WON’T YOU?!

Elizabeth and the Rage of Dragons. Swoons and full blown anxiety.

This week Ava Mason released the last book in the Fated Alpha series about Elizabeth and her swoony dragons. I was so looking forward to this book. I have sped-read through all the books and loved them all. Elizabeth is a badass that really stepped up into her role as Alpha. She has spent 6 books struggling through the death of her father and mother, teaming up with her sexy dragons to fight through all sorts of problems, and is finally ready to go back to her pack to take her rightful place as Alpha. This final book wraps up what Elizabeth has been working towards for the last 6 books. Plus, there is a… drumroll please… super steamy scene between Elizabeth and two of the guys. Swoon. Let’s get into it.

Rage of Dragons.jpg

Grab it here on Amazon! Now! 🙂

We finished the last book with Elizabeth making her way back to her pack and finally defeating Garrett aka Scarface. This is one of the guys that murdered her father and took control of her pack. Thank god he is dead. He was a super douche and had been treating the pack horribly along with the help of the black wolf that also murdered Elizabeth’s father, Elias. Garrett was evil but overall, he was just a pawn for Elias who is really fucking evil. Elias seems to have some really weird powers to pair well with his obvious sadism. Awesome. But Elizabeth is ready to fuck shit up. She has come to take back her pack and she knows she can get out of this because she is the true alpha.

bow down.gif

Elizabeth is absolutely broken hearted because her first love, Aaron, was murdered by his father Garrett. Also, James is missing. Until he isn’t. Because that fucker is helping Elias. WHAT. THE. FUCK. He is standing there looking smug as fuck while Elizabeth, Hunter, Christian, Easton, and Avery are on the ground naked and collared like dogs. Ugh. How on earth could James do this?! He is working with Elias?! That sadistic prick?! WHY!? Has he been brain-washed? Did he do this on his own accord? Is the Queen behind this?!?! All Elizabeth knows is that she is pissed, and they are all royally fucked. Elias has a whole army behind him. There is no escape, especially with the collars around their necks. The collars suppress their ability to shift as well as their magic. Greeeeeeaaaaaaaaaat.

kidding me.gif

Elias has Elizabeth, her men, and her old pack trapped. No escape. He has shoved Elizabeth and the guys in cages in this muddy prison with magicked fences. James, the douchebag, comes in and pulls Easton because obviously in the course of things going from bad to worse Hunter and Easton are going to have to fight. To the death. Of course. Elias and his group of sadistic men get off on forcing shifters to fight each other to the death. Swell guy I tell you. There literally seems to be no way out of this, they are cornered for the first time. No one to come in and save them. No way to magic their way out of this situation. It’s impossible and now they have been separated from Easton. How the hell are they going to get out of this?

you don't have to do this.gif

Elias has some messed up powers that allows him to brainwash Elizabeth. So not only is everything fucked but Elizabeth becomes obsessed with Elias. She thinks he is god’s gift to earth and doesn’t remember why she loves her guys. She tries to convince her pack that Elias is doing this for the greater good and even helps imprison them. Nothing the guys do can snap her out of this. All she wants to do is please Elias and it is truly sickening. I don’t know how Elias can be such a horrible villain yet still have the ability to make me feel sorry for him. I felt myself wondering if I could be okay with him if he truly did love her. If he could fit in with her and the guys. My love for assholes is terrifying sometimes. I hope it is just a testament to Ava’s amazing writing skills that she could make me sort of like this horrible man while at the same time be completely disturbed by him. 

screwed up.gif

This book gave me anxiety. Almost the entire time. I just wanted it to stop. I couldn’t deal with how horrible everything was and that there was no end in sight. James’s betrayal was also really hard. I just felt heartbroken for so long because I just wanted Elizabeth to catch a break. I wanted it to be like back at the cabin where they could all just spend time together and continue falling in love. Instead, I had to figure out if Ava Mason was going to kill off one of my beloved guys. I couldn’t see a way out of this mess. WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME AVA?!?!?!?!?!?!

nervous.gif

Despite above, I really did love this book. It really tied up everything with Elizabeth and the guys nicely. Although I did miss a lot of the swoon, cuz I mean Ava Mason knows how to write some really awesome swoony moments, I did get some doses of swoon. Life can’t be all about swoon I guess. *sob* I felt satisfied with the end. But really, I need another book. I know I won’t get one. Unless I beg?! I mean no, probably not even then. I want all the moments of life after the fuckfest. I want to see more of the OMG moment at the end. I want to be a creepy observer of Elizabeth and ALL her guy’s life together. We don’t always get what we want. Do you know what we do get, though?! We get the ability to go back. Go back and re-read all the books again. Fall in love with Hunter, Easton, Christian, Avery, and maybe even James? These books are ones to read and re-read and re-read. Honestly, I’ll probably never stop reading them. 

heart palpitations.gif

Thank you, Ava Mason, for letting us enter the world of wolf and dragon shifters. You gave us characters to root for, cry with, and especially to fall in love with. I can’t wait to jump into the next work of art you come out with ❤

Thank you.gif

Well… What are you waiting for you guys? It’s time to swoon with me

Can this vampire lover like this Vampire Hunter?! Shattered Illusions.

I decided to purchase this book after the author had a quiz in a Facebook Group that told you which of her book characters you were. I took the quiz and found out I was Ashryn Baker so of course I had to buy the book. I was a little skeptical if I would like it because Ashryn is a vampire hunter. What?! I love vampires, please don’t kill them! Some of my favorite book boyfriends are vampires! You stay away from them Ashryn! I don’t care how alike we are 😊 Well let’s lose a little of the fear there dolls, because I am here to tell you that this is really good book. Let’s get into it ❤

Shattered Illusions

Find it here on Amazon!

Ashryn has been raised by the guild, her and most of the other members were raised from young children to be vampire hunters. That seems safe, right? Ashryn isn’t just any vampire hunter, she is one of the best. So, it’s not surprising that she gets a really difficult task from the commander of the guild. Not surprising but definitely odd, since her task is a solo one against 10 vampires. A mission that usually consists of three hunters, but it’s just her. Seems pretty sketch. Also seems like the commander might be a douchebag but maybe that’s just me.

vampire hunter

Ashryn arrives at the location and is ready to kick some vampire ass. I’ve spoken before that I do have a sweet spot for one vampire hunter, Blade, so I’m thinking maybe I can get behind this. Maybe these vampires are really big assholes. Like killing children and shit. You know, the assholes on True Blood in the first season that really freak out Sookie. Oh! Or the vampires in The Strain. Those vampires are the worst. Plus, really fucking terrifying. Literally, things of nightmares. Trust me, I’ve had the nightmares! I STILL DO! But as you can probably tell, I love vampires. BUT the point is I’m still on board with Ashryn as a vampire hunter. Get it girl.

strain.gif   the strain.gif

Well she gets into the location where the 10 vampires she is supposed to get rid of are. She runs into some issues because of course this mission is built for 3 hunters and even though she is a badass she isn’t Thor. Not everyone can be Thor. So.. something unthinkable happens. The mission fails. What happens when a vampire hunter fails her mission? Death? Probably, but not what happens. No, she gets turned. WHAT?! Fuck. Yes. Ashryn is now a vampire and has to figure out how to navigate these waters. No sunlight? Craving blood? Sexy vampires? YES!

vamp.gif

I really enjoyed this book. It isn’t long, but it is a very interesting story that I haven’t run into before. The vampires she meets are super sexy and swoony. How does she handle becoming the thing she was raised to hate? Will she start mixing with any of the vampire men? WHAT ON EARTH IS GOING TO HAPPEN?! This is a must read for you vampire lovers, I can’t wait to jump into the second one. Swoon with me dolls ❤

Labor day fails. Never-ending TBR list.

Labor day was supposed to be a relaxing day off where I could spend the day reading, preparing blog posts, and playing some ESO (Elder Scrolls Online for you un-nerdy folk 😉). Well that is all a bust because I have been having horrible migraines off and on for days. It’s horrible! At this moment it feels like my left eye and ear are determined to explode and turn my brain into mush 🤯 It’s not an ideal situation. It seems like life likes to throw you curves balls every once in a while. Excited for a three day weekend?! Take some brain pain! Excited to go on vacation? Nope, your husband is sick! Is life finally chilling out a bit? Nope, how about several hospital visits for you and your daughter. What a blast life is. What. A. Blast. 😂😭

headache.gif

Since staring at a screen is kinda killing me right now I figure what better way to help this than to of course take a bath. I’ve thoroughly bored you all with my deep love for baths, but let’s continue it. Baths are the shit. Literally, nothing beats a bath. I can feel my head pain lessening as I soak. If I can’t take a bath then I usually put a wet wash cloth on my eyes, a small eye bath if you will 😂 But obviously I am staring at a screen in the bath because I am typing this, this is a different kind of screen staring though. Trust me, there are no flaws in my logic  😉

baths

So, since I cannot read and I cannot play video games (woe is me, what else makes life worth living?!) I have decided to dig through my TBR list and share with you all what I am planning to read within the next few weeks/months/whenever I get around to it. If any of you guys are like me, your TBR (to be read) list is miles long. Miles. You got a whole list and you know what you are going to read next then bam! Your favorite author puts out a new book. Bam! Someone recommends something that sounds phenomenal. Bam! You find yourself immersed in a series that is like 8 books long. BAM! Some asshole named Julia Swoons suggests something that seems absolutely amazing. Something always gets in the way. So take a gander at my TBR list and maybe I’ll screw up yours and throw some new ones in there.

The Vixen’s Lead (Kit Davenport Book 1) by Tate James

The vixens lead.jpg

This one I have started via audiobook but haven’t had time to really dive in. I normally listen to audiobooks at work and then read at home. Hopefully I can really get into this on soon because I’ve heard excellent things. Reverse Harem. 396 pgs long. Book #1 of 6.

I want vengeance so badly that I can almost taste it. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. So, I did what anyone in my unique position would do. I slapped on a secret identity and became an internationally renowned thief, known as The Fox. Nobody knows me. Nobody can catch me.

Or so I thought…

It turns out; I have what they want. Special abilities. And trust me, these abilities are coveted–and dangerous. Now, I don’t know who to trust or where to go. Peril lurks on every corner as I try to uncover my past and origin. Teaming up with unlikely allies may be my only chance at survival or my biggest mistake. Only time will tell.

I’m Kit Davenport and this is only the beginning.

Claimed by Gods by Eva Chase

claimed by gods.jpg

I have been wanting to read this one for a little while just haven’t felt the time. I have read Eva Chase’s other series, Dragon’s Guard (see my review here), and loved it. I just need to get in the mood for this one, I’m hoping soon 😁 Reverse Harem. 260 pages long. Book #1 of 2, so far.

The gods walk among us. And they just might steal your soul… or your heart.

I thought I’d survived everything life could throw at me. All I wanted was to keep my distance from the criminals I work for and get my little brother out of the hell that is our mother’s house.

Then I died and woke up to four stunningly hot gods telling me I’m now a valkyrie.

Sly, sharp Loki. Jovial but ferocious Thor. Dreamily compassionate Baldur. Grim and secretive Hod. They all have something to teach me. And around them, my walls start to crack.

But the gods didn’t summon me just for kicks. Their king is missing, and they need me to find him. The first three valkyries they sent on the job never made it back.

More power is awakening in me than I could ever have imagined—and the gods’ enemies are more devious than even they knew. It’s going to take every trick in the book for me to save myself, my brother, and these divine men who’re getting under my skin in the most alluring way.

I’m Aria Watson, and Valhalla ain’t seen nothing yet.

Pack Ebon Red by C.M. Stunich

Pack Ebon Red.jpg

I have really been on a C.M. Stunich kick lately. She is such an amazing author and is fast becoming one of my favorites. She knows how to write sexy and hilarious men. I have not run into one of her books yet that I didn’t like. Reverse Harem. 360 pgs long. Book #1 of 7.

I am wolf; I am human; I am neither; I am both.
I am werewolf.

My boys represent the biggest packs in North America.
But I am the Alpha Female and I rule them all.

One day, the packs might force me to choose.
But my heart, it won’t allow it. Things could get…bloody if I have to fight for my boys.
For now, three glittering dark courts threaten our existence with their glamorous cruelty:
the vampires, the witches, and the fae.

Werewolves are missing from all the packs, and my boys and I, we have to find them.
Or find out who’s killing them.
Because I’m the mistress of my men, my packs, a girl known simply as White Wolf.
I’ve promised to protect the men I love, the family and friends I cherish.
And the White Wolf…always keeps her promises.

Burn by Suzanne Wright

Burn Suzanne Wright

I love Suzanne Wright. I am OBSESSED with the Phoenix Pack series and the Mercury Pack series she writes. Love them. It only make sense that I will love this one too! Fantasy Romance series. 301 pgs long. Book #1 of 4.

Part of a small demon lair in Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or ‘anchor’, is a guy who’s rumoured to be the most powerful demon in existence. Compelling, full of secrets and armed with raw sexuality, Knox Thorne is determined to claim her as his anchor, creating a psychic bond that will prevent their inner demons from ever turning rogue.

The billionaire also wants Harper in his bed.

She’s not so sure she wants either of those things. No one seems to know what breed of demon Knox is, only that he’s more dangerous than anything she’s ever before encountered. But he refuses to walk away. And when an unknown danger starts closing in on Harper, it seems that Knox is the only one who can keep her safe.

As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to being in control. He’s also used to people fearing and obeying him. Harper does neither, which unexpectedly amuses him. Unpredictable, elusive and complex, she draws Knox and his inner demon like nothing ever has.

Knox is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He’ll have her, and he’ll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what’s his. He won’t allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make.

Renegade Hunter by Lacey Carter Andersen

renegade hunter.jpg

Like I’ve said before, I’m a sucker for a beautiful cover. Plus I’ve been on a demon kick since Four Psychos (see my review here!) and this one looks like a hot demon book ❤

A demon-hunter trying to survive. Three sexy-as-hell demons. And the truth that will change their lives forever…

Being a demon-hunter means living a life of danger. Of giving up everything to keep humanity safe, even if they’ll never know it. And for Sharen, it means knowing she’s fighting on the side of good.

Which is all just fine– until she’s accidentally tied to three demons.

Jace, Ryder, and Kade are handsome, dangerous, and absolutely certain that Sharen is the woman they want to spend the rest of their immortal lives loving. They don’t care that they’re enemies, they’re bound and determined to show her that there’s more to her world than what she’s been told.

But there’s one problem with their plan. Something they never could have expected. The woman they’ve claimed as their own, well, she doesn’t like being lied to. And when those lies endanger the people she loves… she’s going to do something about it.

Even if she has to burn her whole damn world down.

Dannan: The Unseen Book 3 by L A Boruff

Dannan.jpg

This is the third book in the Unseen series by L A Boruff and I am so excited about it. It comes out towards the end of September so I have some time before it’s in my hands, well on my screen. It will be a release day read, for sure. I have been soooo in love with this series so far. See my reviews for Supay and Leyak! They are amazing books so I know this one will be too. Reverse Harem 238 pgs long. Book #3 of 3.

Jen Johnson loved to read about supernatural creatures. She’d always dreamed of climbing into the pages of her books to become a vampire or werewolf. Imagine her surprise when she almost dies falling down the steps of the courthouse, only to save herself by turning into a flying dragon. 

It’s a dream come true, right?

Alexander, leader of all of the Fae—actually, they prefer Dannan, thank you—and his cousin Roan try to help her acclimate to her new life, but it isn’t until she meets Doryu, a gorgeous Sárkány shifter that things start to get interesting. 

And what is going on in the town? Some of those people aren’t what they seem. If Jen sticks her nose where it doesn’t belong, maybe she’ll get some answers the Unseen world needs. And maybe her nosiness will only get her heartache.

These are obviously just a handful of the books on my TBR list, I didn’t want to overwhelm you all 😊 So, did I screw up any of your TBR lists? See any that you NEED to read now? Feel free to screw up my list by recommending some steamy sexy romance books or if you’ve read one of my TBRs shout out! I’d love to hear your thoughts! 😁 

As always, keep swooning dolls ❤

Cure the virus, save the world. In Her Company.

You all should be really proud because I have been venturing away from my normal diet of strictly paranormal romances and jumping into some really good romances in other genres. This is another one! Let’s get into ‘In her Company’ by AJ Sinclair, a post-apocalyptic/dystopian reverse harem romance about a badass chick named Indiana Jones and the four soldiers that are going to try to help her save the world.

In her Company isn’t too long with a typical reading time of 3 hours and 7 minutes — plus it is on Kindle Unlimited, SCORE! It is the first of the series, with the second book also out.

The story starts at a 4th of July party and Indiana Jones is sweating her ass off. Dr. Indie Jones, as she prefers to be called, witnesses her mother sickness happen right before her eyes. One minute they are talking about potato salad in the kitchen and the next her mother is coughing up blood and seizing on the floor. Knowing the ambulance is on the way to take her mother to the hospital, Indie rushes off to her lab determined to find a cure. Unable to figure out how to take down the virus she goes to the hospital to visit her mother. During the visit and an argument with her brother, her mother dies leaving Indie and the rest of her family devastated. Indie turns to what she knows best, science and the fight to find a cure to this sickness. She has to save the rest of her family, she has to save everyone.

Indie makes her way back to her lab and begins testing. Days pass and she continues experimenting different cures on lab rats as she watches the city around her dissipate into complete anarchy. The news shows her that thousands of people are dying, the ones that haven’t are being quarantined to their homes and work. Riots are breaking out and most places of business are being looted. It’s complete madness outside. Indie may very well be able to stop it, when she finally discovers a cure. A successful test on a lab rat named Rizzo is what Indie needs to be able to venture back into the world. She has to make it back to the hospital to save her brother, sister, and father. She has the cure, the one thing that can save everyone. But can she make it back to the hospital on her own with the chaos ensuing outside the safety of her lab?

Indie’s first steps outside her lab almost lead her to turn back. Bodies everywhere. Rotting flesh, blood, the town ravaged. She knows she must press on, she just needs to get to the hospital and end this thing. Not long into this new world of infection she meets up with 4 soldiers. Cody, Eli, Jack, and Austin are all that is left of the 150 soldiers that were stationed in the quarantine zone when the virus started to spread. They were tasked with keeping the peace and keeping the infection in the quarantined zone. Indie shows them her single vial with the cure and begs them to let her go so that she can get to the hospital. She knows she can end this thing, she just needs to get to the hospital. They agree to help her, eager to take on a mission and end this thing.

All four men are absolutely gorgeous, even in these horrible circumstances Indie can’t fight her attraction to these men. She knows that she is immune to the virus after studying her blood in the lab and these guys don’t seem to be infected. What could it hurt to allow these sexy men to escort her to save her family? Their group dynamic is immediate, and they mesh together so well. Cody is adorably hilarious and has such a sexy bad boy vibe. He is helpful in stealing food, hot wiring cars, and talking in his incredibly sexy southern accent. Austin is the leader, super protective and keeps these assholes in line. Jack is the sexy silent type but gets incredibly adorable and sweet around Indie. Eli is also very protective and although suspicious of Indie at first is definitely attracted to her. Plus, his protectiveness of her leads him to get a baseball bat to the ribs while trying to keep her safe on the way to the hospital.

I really enjoyed reading this dystopian reverse harem romance book a lot. Wow, that is a lot of adjectives.  My favorite part had to be that Indie is African American. There are not very many examples of women of color that are represented in mainstream romance books, so this is definitely a breath of fresh air. One of her guys is also African American.  PLUS, Indie is a badass chick that is not only super intelligent but also is pretty fearless. Instead of finding the cure and hiding behind closed doors hoping others will distribute it to the population she meets the virus head on. Lucky for us she doesn’t hole herself up in her lab because she gets to meet the completely sexy men. I’m normally not into soldiers or arrogant types, but shit, arrogant works on these guys. I wouldn’t mind being saved by these men after the world goes to shit, everyone starts coughing up blood, and dying around me. Indie being an analytical woman is intrigued by the possibility of a group dynamic and AMEN to that because her interactions with her guys are H-O-T. Will Indie be able to save her family? Can she eradicate the virus with her cure? Can these four hot soldiers share our super-hot and intelligent MC? Will this post-apocalyptic book have you absolutely swooning? I won’t be giving away any spoilers, but I can answer the last question with a resounding YES. All you gotta do to swoon is jump in, are you ready?

Getting ravaged by Ravagers

Okay, so we have here The Ravager Chronicles by Sara Page. A swoony worthy Sci-Fi reverse harem romance series that will make you weak at the knees.

The Ravager Chronicles

Find it here on Amazon!

I seriously was very skeptical at first. I’m normally just not that into alien stories because aliens are scary not sexy. Think the scariest movie ever. Yes, you are correct. Signs with Mel Gibson. Talking about fucking scary. I had to sleep in my parent’s room for weeks after that horrible experience. So when I see that this reverse harem series is about aliens I am just not confident that I will love it. Well Sara Page knows how to write sexy aliens, lemme tell you. Let’s get into it.

So, we have our main character, Ameia. This girl is a princess of her home planet and decided to have a bit of rebellious fun on her birthday and go up in a ship with her step brother. Of course, their journey goes horribly leading to Ameia being shipped in an emergency pod onto an unknown planet. Ameia has no idea where she is so she has no way of knowing if the planet she is on has oxygen or what types of lifeforms are present. She is pretty much trapped in her archaic pod with limited food, water, and uhhhh bathroom space. It’s not smelling very princessly in there. Ameia kinda drives me nuts at the beginning. I mean my favorite part of reverse harem books is the amount of characters I get to swoon over. Instead of the typical man and woman main characters we normally get in romance books we get lots and lots of man meat, errr lovely men, to swoon over. Well Ameia is whiney. Like super whiney. I would probably be the same, but still I usually like my MCs pretty badass.

Without much thought Ameia presses the red button in her pod and it starts opening. Well that’s not ideal. I mean I’m not expert but maybe we should check for oxygen before opening the pod. Just an idea. I mean I am pleased that her opening the pod might lead to more characters because I need more. LUCKILY, there is air so Ameia is able to breathe and not die immediately. That would be an odd book. Kill off the MC at the beginning, but wait, that wasn’t the main character. Different main character. This is a book idea, authors take note. But this book Ameia doesn’t die. I am happy about this because she does turn out to be pretty awesome.  😊

Ameia breathes. Sweet relief. No more princess stench. She looks around and sees something in the distance? What could it be? Why a naked purple man barreling at her full speed. Well then… that’s unexpected. I mean better than the Signs aliens but still not ideal. She attempts to stay in her pod avoiding the man for days. Literally days barely leaving the pod. I felt like I was going to stop reading because I was truly bored. As bored as our princess. She slowly starts leaving the pod and adventuring a bit, running full speed back to the pod anytime she catches sight of the mysterious man. Even though he seems to be trying to take care of her. She can’t understand his alien language but he keeps bringing food and water to her pod, confusing the hell out of her. What’s even more confusing are the super sexual dreams she keeps having about the unknown man. He is terrifying and absolutely intriguing.

Eventually she is unable to refuse his help and takes up residence in a ship with him. A man she can’t understand, who has one hell of a temper, purple skin and glowing red eyes. A beast. Beast, as Ameia starts lovingly referring him as, turns out to be kinda an asshole. But overall an asshole that loves her. He is also a ravager. Ameia grows up being terrified of ravagers, they are a thing of nightmares on her planet. Honestly I picture the ravagers from Guardians of the Galaxy most of the time. Except sexy. & purple. Probably because they have the exact same name…

I only know ravagers as the sexy beasts that Sara Page describes them as. I literally love them all. The Ravager Chronicles on Amazon is a book set of all four of the books in the series. So I read them all at once. No waiting, no having to download them one by one. I was able to just fly through them. & fly through them I did once I got past the part of Ameia being mostly alone and trapped in the pod. Ameia and her ravager men are oh so swoony. Each of them have a very special place in my heart. She has Beast, Striker, Warrick, and Vis. They are dark, loving, and oh so sexy. The sex scenes in this book are hot and the loves scenes will make you weak at the knees. I truly enjoyed this book series. Now I just spend my time dreaming about Ravagers and waiting for one of them to be my calling. Swoon with me dolls, you won’t be sorry ♥♥
