It may be Unconventional, but I am IN LOVE!

Oh don’t worry… I’ll be okay… That gaping hole in my heart?! Well it happens every time I’m reading an amazing book series and go to jump into the next book only to see the word ‘Pre-Order’. WHAT THE FUCK IS A PRE-ORDER?! I know. I know. I’m being selfish. Give the author a break, give her time… October 19th is only a few weeks away. You’ll be okay… BUT WILL I?! Well how about you all swoon with me over these two amazing books I have just inhaled and you too can feel the gaping hole in your heart that a pre-order button creates as you wait for book three with me….

Yes, I have found another contemporary romance series to fall in love with. Again, WHO KNEW THERE WAS SO MUCH AMAZINGNESS IS THE CONTEMPORARY GENRE?! WHO KNEW?! Plus, ANOTHER REDHEAD! #gingersunite  We have Giovanna who is just your average college student. Well maybe not so average, I would say your average college student is an semi-alcoholic who watches a lot of Adult Swim, never stops playing Call of Duty, and can’t be seen before noon. Weeeeelllll maybe that was just me. I jest. Sort of. Giovanna is adorably shy and doesn’t really have a lot of excitement in her life. That is until she is walking home alone one night during winter break. I know this sounds like it’s going to turn into a haunting story. No, she isn’t going to get kidnapped. This isn’t that kind of story. She is walking and hears someone yell ‘Hey there, library.’ She continues walking because honestly who wouldn’t. I’m not typically shy but even I would walk up to a stranger who was calling me ‘library’, that’s just rule number one in the stranger danger handbook…

stranger danger.gif

Well stranger danger aside, if I turned around and Maven was trying to get my attention I would stop. Giovanna doesn’t know it yet but Maven. Yum. She does stop because she is a kind person although a little awkward. She stands there in the cold talking to Maven, Chance, and Banyan completely stunned that they know who she is and are flirting with her. It’s adorable, I see hot guys and creepy factor goes out the window. I’m surprised I haven’t been murdered yet… Getting married early probably saved me from that. I haven’t dated anyone but my husband since I was 16. Giovanna has a good sense of stranger danger though and declines their offers to go into their frat house or even to a restaurant with them. Talk about willpower. Or maybe it’s just good self-preservation.

get in the car.gif

That night things don’t go well. She wakes up to fire alarms and it is not a drill. Her dorm is on fire and she has to flee the building. Luckily, when she gets outside the three hotties from earlier are there. They being chivalrous knights came to see if any help was needed. Swoon. They sweep Giovanna off to their frat house, so she has somewhere to stay for the night. This begins something wonderfully swoonworthy, completely sexy, and just plain adorable. Being there was a fire in her dorm it is inevitably closed until school starts back up after winter break in a couple of weeks. Giovanna, Maven, Chance, and Banyan spend this whole time together making the group decision to be friends. Friends with benefits that is. None of them want relationships. Who has time for relationships with finals around the corner? Well I mean I did but… 😊

just friends.gif

Their no-strings attached relationship brings life to Giovanna. Not that women have to be lifeless drones before they get a man in their life, get real I’m a feminist WE DON’T NEED MEN. But there is just something that love does to a person. Even if its of the no-strings attached variety. The friendship that sparks between Giovanna and these three practically brothers is adorable and hilarious. I love all the guys and their amazing personalities. I love that they all ramble and say too much. Take it from a rambler, we are just tons of fun 😉 Plus the sex is hot. H-O-T, hot. Hawt. It’s really sexy. We’ve also all seen how these no-strings attached relationships play out. Will things stick to strictly friendship with some sexy time or will these four amazing individuals fall in love? I guess you’ll just have to read it yourself. Trust me, reading these amazing books you’ll be swooning with me ❤

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

That’s just the sound of my heart. Roadie.

Talk about a beautiful cover. Wanna know what’s even more beautiful? The story. Let’s get into it

Roadie.jpg

Find it here on Amazon!

We join our beautiful Lilith Tempest Goode back on the bus with her oh so gorgeous men. Her life with the men of Beauty in Lies flashed before her eyes. She was locked out of the concert venue, told by the bitchface Octavia that she was nothing but a piece of ass for the guys, and completely humiliated by her ex Kevin. This asshole took her VIP pass, license, and money set them on fire and threw them in a USPS box. What. A. Megadouche. She is left in a strange town with no money, no cell phone, and no friend or family. That is until her guys find her. Absolutely fucking terrified that they had lost her. Swoon.

cry.gif

The guys are ready to fire this bitch Octavia. Give her the boot boys! But of course, Lilith is a saint and decides to give the bitch a second chance. I woulda watched the bitch buuuuurn. Trying to steal Ransom, Muse, Cope, Pax, and Michael from her. Not gonna happen. Luckily all is settled. Muse asks her to continue the world part of the tour with them, swoon. Lilith and the guys only have a few more stops in North America before heading overseas. Last stop in the United States though is New York. Place of her childhood home, and where her father’s ashes currently are.

burn.gif

This book is a lot about surviving through grief and mourning. Lilith is able to face the fact that her family is gone. She is lucky enough to have her guys though. All of them also being a little broken in their own ways. They all have truly fucked pasts. Even Lilith. But they are all able to accept each other, it’s freaking beautiful.

“Bad things happen, people die, hearts are broken, but it’s how we walk in the rain of grief that defies us. Do we cower in the downpour and let the frigid chill soak us through? Do we grab an umbrella and fight the storm? Or do we stand tall and let our heads fall back, open our mouths and taste every fucking drop as its coolness sizzles against the heat of our tongue?” C.M. Stunich, Roadie

Jesus h christ, C M Stunich is the queen of deep. She has the power to force you into tears and rip your fucking heart out of your chest. She also has the ability to make you all swoony and giggly like a schoolgirl with a crush. Word wizard. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.

hands.gif

We learn a lot about our guys in this book. Their pasts. Their struggles. Their blossoming love for our main character that we’ve all fell in love with. Cope is the one that is struggling the most as Lilith and the guys make their relationship more serious. He has dealt with taking care of women his entire life. Saving his grandmother from his grandfather as well as taking care of his mother. Both the women important to him have been frail. Including his former girlfriend Cara who dealt with a lot of emotional issues eventually ending her own life. Cope was devasted by losing her. So much so that he still carries enough fear to decide to end the very new relationship with Lilith and the guys.

sadness.gif

Luckily this is short lived. Thank the fucking lord. We can’t lose Cope. He is too adorable. Plus if one of them decides they want out could it work for the rest?! WHO KNOWS?! I CAN’T TAKE THAT CHANCE!! Plus, Lilith is amazing. WHY WOULD HE LEAVE HER?! I feel like a lot of female main characters are whiney and cry a lot. The same can be said for Lilith but not in your typical way. Lilith is experiencing real fucking struggles but still is able to be a person. To love the people around her. To create and have sympathy. She is amazing. #ladycrush PLUS she is a redhead. Having auburn hair myself, I totally dig a main character with red hair. POWER TO THE GINGERS ❤😜

lana.gif

Another amazing thing about this book is watching all the relationships grow and morph. Especially, Random and Paxton’s relationship. There is a lot left unsaid between them. From Ransom and Pax’s ex-girlfriend falling in love to that turning into the girl and Pax’s sister dying in a car crash. There is a lot of bad blood and guilt between them. Pax treats Ransom like shit. I’ve said before that I love assholes. Love em. I love Pax, he is indeed an asshole. I hate how he treats Ransom. Can’t stand it. Luckily this is resolved in this book which turns into something so fucking hot I can’t. I just can’t, okay. Read it. It’s the most fucking swoonworthy thing you will ever read in your whole life. Swoon.

woot.gif

C M Stunich literally does it again. She is such an amazing author. She is able to completely create this realistic group of people and make you fall in love with them over and over. I literally cannot put the book down. All I want to do is read about this woman and her tattooed men, then read it again. It’s so good. I said it before but this time I am so series. This has become one of my all-time favorite series. I laugh, I swoon, I cry, I fall in love. These guys are just so amazing. Lilith is so amazing. It’s all amazing. Are you ready to swoon with me?

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.

aigns.gif

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.

trapped.gif

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.  😊

stranded.gif

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. 

running.gif

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… 

ravagers.gif

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 ♥♥

Heading to Ethar in Under Different Stars

Sometimes I go through a bit of a YA (young audience) kick. I want something swoony but maybe less raunchy. A favorite YA author of mine is Amy A. Bartol, and the first series I read by her is the Kricket series. I love this series. Love it. It’s a YA Sci-fi Romance series that has lots of ups and downs. Let’s get into it.

Under Different Stars.jpg

Find it here on Amazon!

How gorgeous is this cover?! Ahhh I love it.

So our main character, and cover girl, is Kricket. What an amazing name. She is this gorgeous 6 foot tall beauty with blonde hair and violet eyes. She looks like a freaking super model. Sadly, she doesn’t live the life of a super model. In and out of foster homes for as long as she can remember, Kricket began living on the street when it all became too much. A lot of the foster homes she was placed in were not friendly places. She was treated very poorly, abused, and used as a means for a paycheck. Now Kricket finally has a place to call her own. An apartment she is renting with her friend that she met through the foster child system, Bridget. She has almost aged out of the foster system and just needs to lay low until she turns 18. Once she has turned 18 she will be free. No more hiding, she can go to school, she can get a real job where she doesn’t have to be paid under the table. Everything will be perfect.

street.gif

With perfection in reach things of course start to go awry for Kricket. While taking the train home from work three very attractive, very tall, and very buff guys with black hair and tribal tattoos seem to have their violet eyes on her. Terrified that they work for social services she attempts to ignore them. Much to her dismay they come up to her and know her name. “Ah, Kricket, I’ve found you”. What. The. Actual. Fuck. The guys, with the leader being Trey, are convinced that she is the ‘Kricket’ they are looking for and they must take her back to Ethar because she has to face her family and pay for her crimes. Deciding that these guys are completely crazy she attempts to escape, and when that doesn’t work she pulls out her handy dandy pepper spray and blasts their asses giving her an opportunity to bust ass off the train and away from the crazy hot guys. Crazy hot? Pretty sure it’s both crazy hot as well as crazy and hot 😂

pepper spray

Freaking the fuck out Kricket races home to find her roommate preparing to leave for a weekend away with her boyfriend. She explains the insane situation but insists her friends still goes. Cause you know, friendship right?! A lot tougher than me.. She takes some time to clear her head and catch some sleep before her 2nd job, bartending at the bar downstairs. Luckily for her the bar is slammed with customers, aka more tips. She is working away when a group of three enormous blonde-haired men come up to her. What is with all the freaking giants suddenly appearing in her life? These guys have the exact same tribal tattoos which leads her into an immediate panic. Of course, the leader of this trio, Kyon, knows her name as well. He has the exact shade of hair as her, knows her freaky secret that her hair grows back immediately after cutting it, and also claims she is from Ethar. She is completely convinced that this is some kind of joke and that these giants must be friends with Trey and his group. She realizes that this may not be true as Kyon is furious that Trey is also looking for her. Kricket decides to get off the crazy train and is able to get away from Kyon too with the help of the bouncer of the bar and a shot gun. No biggie…

what is going on.gif

Kricket’s escape is short lived as she is taken by Trey and his group and held prisoner as they make their way to Ethar. Ethar which happens to be another freaking planet that they are able to get to via portal. Holy shit ball sandwich batman. This is cray cray. Kricket is transported to this amazing world with multiple moons, a crazy assortment of wild creatures, as well as crazy off-world politics. Her parents are from enemy clans and their love was absolutely forbidden. How Romeo and Juliet. Well unlike Romeo and Juliet, her parents are able to escape their horrid clans and take up refuge on her. Then of course die of some menial earth disease because their immune systems weren’t built for life on earth. A la War of the Worlds aliens. Disease and bacteria. That’s what’ll save us from aliens. This is how Kricket ended up in the foster care system and where she is at today.

avatar.gif

The Rafe clan, or her father’s clan, of black haired and violet-eyed people believe that she belongs with them but must pay for her crime of desertion. Because you know, as an infant she made the very educated choice to abandon her home planet for Earth… Right…. Well the Alameeda clan, or her mother’s clan, of blonde-haired and blue-eyed people believe that she belongs with them. Of course they do. The women in the Alameeda clans are gifted and are seen as royalty. She has been promised to marry Kyon who is kinda a dick, albeit a very sexy dick. So of course, I am in love with him. Jeeze, don’t act like you didn’t see this coming…

what.gif

Kricket’s time in Ethar is amazing, horrifying, and completely crazy. I know what you are thinking, another book about a girl being abducted by a guy and falling in love with him. Well you are right. Buuuut this book is still so freaking good. Trey is a freaking swoonfest and his two friends, Jax and Wayra, are hilarious and adorable. I truly fall in love with all three of these guys. Kricket finally gets to feel like what it means to have family. Even if the circumstances are weird. Kricket is feisty and absolutely hilarious. She has to deal with a lot of crazy shit and somehow still keeps her head. This is YA so the romance is more swoony than dirty. There are definitely some steamy scenes but they aren’t as raunchy as your typical romance book. I definitely recommend this to all my swooners. I have read and reread and reread again this series so many times. The books are great, the audiobooks are great, it’s all great.

swooned

Come on, won’t you swoon with me? ❤

Feral Sins is the sexy shifter romance you’ve been looking for

Do you love shifters?! Do you love badass main characters? What about sexy brooding men that you can’t help but fall in love with?! Yes?! Damn right yes, what else are you doing here really? Let me take you through Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright, the first of many books in The Phoenix Pack Series.

Feral Sins

Find it here on Amazon!

Let me start by saying that Suzanna Wright knows how to write sexy males, sarcastic badass women that say fuck a lot, and some truly steamy sex scenes that will make even the raunchiest girl blush. In the most tasteful way of course. Snort. This first book is about Taryn, a short little burst of energy that takes no shit from anyone. Her father is the alpha of her pack and a complete asshat. So much of an asshat that he is forcing her to be claimed by another asshat, Roscoe. Also, she’s latent which is something that you absolutely do not want to be as a shifter. Being latent means that she can’t shift. She can feel her very alpha wolf but can’t shift, making her a huge disappointment to her father. Her only redeeming quality in her father’s eye is that she is a really talented healer. Plus being a woman, he is able to mate her off to an alpha in another pack to help in forming alliances. What a swell dad…

sucky

The book starts with Taryn waking up in a very strange place, that smells amazing. She doesn’t recall getting drunk last night or going home with anyone. Her memory is just black. She is pissed, woozy, confused, and has absolutely no idea where she is. Finally, able to get out of her deliciously smelling room-prison, she realizes she has been abducted. Greeeeat. Another wolf pack has taken her and presented her with a proposition. A very interesting propostion.

where am i.gif

Trey Coleman, a completely psycho wolf with a horrible reputation for challenging and killing the last alpha of his pack. It just so happened that the last alpha of his pack was his father, and Trey was only 14. Of course, Trey Coleman is completely fucking hot. The complete bad boy that is dark and brooding. He is also, of course, the owner of the amazing smell that Taryn woke up to. The attraction between them both is immediate and so freaking sexy. Literally they greet each other with hunger in their eyes, even though Taryn is still suuuuper pissed about being taken against her will to his pack territory. Trey on the other hand is very surprised at how brave Taryn is. & how incredibly turned on she makes him. He is also surprised of how protective he is of this little wolf that he just met. Even though her current predicament of being abducted was by his instruction.

Trey has a proposition for her, one that can help them both in many ways. Trey’s pack is being challenged by his old pack, his uncle who took over the pack claims he just wants to reunite the packs. Bring families back together. But what he really wants is to take Trey down. Trey, not one to back down, knows this will turn into a fight. One that even the shifter council can’t stop. He brings a plan to Taryn, that they fake a claiming in a public place. They claim that they are each other’s true mates and deny that their actual true mates were really their true mates, both of which are deceased. If Taryn and Trey claim each other, Taryn gets out of mating with the asshole Roscoe and Trey’s pack gets an alliance that can help him in the upcoming fight against his old pack. She hates the thought of denying that Joey, her deceased childhood friend, was her true mate when she knows that he was.

She is oh so tempted by Trey’s offer to release her from her fucked up arrangement with Roscoe but is still very skeptical. Her wolf on the other had is all for the arrangement. Upon waking up covered in his scent, of course she was thrown in his bed to sleep in after being abducted, Taryn’s wolf is convinced that Trey is hers. Trey’s wolf is in complete agreement and is ready to claim this sarcastic little spitfire of a wolf. After some thought and realization of how fucked her situation is and that she literally has no other way to escape Roscoe she agrees. They make the plan to meet at her typical Friday night shifter bar and let the public claiming commence.

Trey and Taryn’s claiming may be staged but their wolves see it as very real. They do act like mates in some ways, especially physically. Trey and Taryn start having a lot of sex. Steamy, hot, aggressive, freaking unbelievably sexy sex. For the sake of their wolves of course. Can they keep their claiming to just the arrangement and some freaking amazing sex? Will they be able to go their separate ways after the battle with Trey’s uncle and former pack?

I really really really enjoyed this book. So far it is the first of seven books in the series. Suzanne Wright continues to write amazing books in both this Phoenix Pack series and an accompanying series, The Mercury Pack. Each book is about a different wolf in the pack and a pack that they ally with in the future, The Mercury Pack. All the men are just so freaking adorably sexy, hilarious, and come with their own baggage. The woman are little badasses that don’t need men to protect them. They are sarcastic, witty, hilarious, and curse almost as much as I do. The sex scenes are amazing. This author definitely knows how to write good hot sex scenes. My favorite part is that the books is written in both the male and female main character’s point of views. It isn’t first person so the individual point of views aren’t written per chapter as most books are, but inclusively throughout the whole book. I really like the author’s writing style, all the characters, and different stories in these series. I definitely recommend! Are you ready to swoon with me?! ❤
