Hey y'all, thanks so much for stopping by my WoW! 

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 






An untamed witch. A forgotten past. An unknown legacy.

The nightmares might have stopped, but it's just the beginning for Alice Skye.

Newly Independent Paladin Agent Alice Skye is just starting to get her life together. She’s survived a cult, taken down a corrupt druid and things are just starting to heat up with London’s finest bachelor, Riley Storm.

With stolen Fae artefacts, missing hearts and a tight-lipped Detective, Alice must break down Peyton’s barriers, especially since his secret will help find the truth behind several gruesome murders.

But The Council are still watching, waiting as they’re quietly deciding her fate.

Can she survive their judgment?

Or will it be her ancestry that destroys her?


Why am I waiting?


I seriously need to know if Alice and Riley end up together.  There I said it... I am here fore the romance.... Yes, the action is fine and dandy but the chemistry between Alice and Riley.  The tension- is literally off the charts.

When the pack member Emme had dinner with is found dead, it is up to Emme and her werewolf pal Bren to solve his murder. But spine-tingling danger and touches with evil have ways of bringing close friends closer in ways neither would have expected.

Read an Excerpt

There’s a naked werewolf standing in front of me.

Let me kindly explain.

There’s a naked werewolf—a man who can change into a werewolf—standing naked, in human form, in front of me.

They do that a lot, change from beast to full naked glory. Typically, it’s pre and post bloody battle for the sake of the world and to protect its unsuspecting human populace. However awkward, I’m used to it.

“Like what you see?” he asks.

Make that sort of used to it.

He flexes and gives a little thrust to show off what he thinks are some delectable goods and oh, my…he has three testicles.

I slap my hands over my eyes. I take it back. I take it all back. I’m not used to all this.

“Emme,” Ted asks. “Did you just gag?”

I’m not a rude person.

I’m not a liar.

            “Yes?” is my response.

Ted is a lot bigger than me. He’s also stronger and can snap my spine without changing to his beast counterpart. I keep my hands over my eyes. As a nurse by trade, and a supernatural fighter by sheer terrible luck, I have seen things, ugly, frightening, and unexceptionally evil things, and I’ve encountered creatures so menacing mere thoughts reduce me to trembles.

I draw the line at extra testicles.

The sound of slapping and bouncing skin causes me to shrink inward. Ted seems to be putting on quite the show. Honestly, it sounds like a one-man juggling show involving best-left-covered body parts.

I’m tired of dating Teds.

And humans, they wouldn’t survive me or the world my sisters and I were thrown into.

No, in order to be with me you must have something special.

And I’m not referring to what Ted is currently playing with.

My hands slip away from my face when I sense his approach.

“In my world, I’m revered for my virility,” he says to my back.

“Mm-hmm,” I reply. I pity the packmate forced to run behind him.

Ted is either referring to his obscenely large member weres are known for (“They’re built for attracting females,” my perky sister once explained) or the extra semen sack dangling halfway down his thigh. Neither impress me and neither does Ted.

I carefully step over the second of two discarded pizza boxes and make my way toward the exit.

My steps slow as I reach the door.

I turn to me left, then to my right. Something else is here.

Dread and resentment drag their long spindly fingers across my skin and hate coats my tongue.

I’m scared and on guard, and it’s not because of Ted.

Review: Midnight Mage




Author Chandelle LaVaun & Megan Montero 
Format e-ARC 
Print Length 343 pages 
Publisher Wanderlost Publishing 
Published July 18, 2020 


He put a spell on me...

Or at least he must have, because none of this makes any sense. None of this can be real. I’m not a mage with magical powers…I’m just me. Ellie Sutton. Your average, everyday sixteen-year-old high school human student. My biggest concerns are bullies, failed exams, and missing the express subway twice in one day. 

Magic is something I read about in comic books, it’s not real. People don’t move things with their minds or summon lightning with their hands. I don’t care what Stellan Wentworth says. It doesn’t matter that he’s breathtakingly beautiful or that his eyes sparkled when I challenge him. He’s the kind of hero found in romance novels, not my real life. I’m dreaming, I have to be. 

Because if I’m not, then what he’s telling me is true. This gorgeous, terrifying world is in turmoil…and if I don’t learn how to use my magic overnight…they’ll all die. 

Featuring a kickass heroine, forbidden love, and magic you’ll wish was real, fans of The Mortal Instruments, Twilight, or Harry Potter will love Chandelle LaVaun and Megan Montero’s brand new urban fantasy series! 

Pick up Midnight Mage and enter The Night Realm today! 

My Opinion 


Dynamic Duo and Besties to boot- Chandelle LaVaun and Megan Montero have teamed up to give the world a whole new realm to explore: The Night Realm. I am here for this! Midnight Mage is the first book to release and it sets the stage. The world building is extensive and intriguing. 

It’s Halloween and what can some cosplaying high schoolers want more than to win the costume contest at the party of the year? That is what Ellie and her friends are hoping to do, which is why they came to Tyler’s party in the first place. So how exactly did she end up playing spin-the-bottle and who was that guy she just kissed? And some kiss that must have been because all around her the hustle and bustle of New York City has gone quiet. The skyscrapers are gone and who the heck is that chasing her? Ellie’s world just got turned upside down… where is she? And can she really do magic? Enter The Night Realm and find out… 

Ellie is proud of her geekdom status, her friends are fabulously hers and they get her. Her bestie is extremely popular, and that is just how Ellie likes it. She can join in and still avoid the center of the stage. Until a fateful game of spin the bottle, which has her stumbling into a different realm. Now although scared, Ellie knows that she has to suck it up buttercup. An evil guy is after her and instead of crying in a corner. Ellie is determined to try her best to master this new magic in her, she wants to survive and get back home. 

Imagine growing up in a kingdom that has tyrants as rulers. The kind of ruler that cares only for themselves. Now, add in that those rulers are your parents- who you are ashamed of. Now you have the mindset of Prince Stellan. Yes, an actual freaking prince. Let me tell you, dang… cause Stellan is the whole freaking package. When he finds Ellie in his realm, he has to help her. Help her to know his world, know her power, and know just who he is. Rebellion is coming to his realm and it will take both of them to finish the fight. 

The secondary characters at times steal the show, but only for a second or two. Nickle has a big personality, but it doesn’t overshadow Ellie’s. The dukes sense of humor and pure enjoyment of life makes you hope that there is a novella coming out staring them and well you. Melanie’s gentleness with introducing Ellie to the world and her ability to speak geek leave you wondering…just who or what she is. Araqiel’s guidance of how to overcome the obstacles (trying not to give spoilers) is well just hilarious. #Tacosforlife 

The world building is spectacularly done, without it being cumbersome to learn. Ellie and Stellan make a fabulous team, one with mutual respect and a fair amount of chemistry. The action scenes are fun, with a fair amount of whole crap who will win in the end. Speaking of endings…holy cliffhanger, batman- so unfair. I seriously kept trying to turn the page on my kindle to find out what happens next. 

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars 


Favorite Quote “Mistakes were made.”

Nickle- Human bestie, with a big personality 
LaDarious- enemy of the crown 
Melanie- mage, mentor to Ellie

Book Trailer Saturday (26) Terraformer


Some people believe you can fall in love at first sight. When it comes to books I believe those people. Book trailers are an excellent way to fall in love at first sight. I hope to feature a book trailer here every Saturday to help you fall in love at first sigh...




A new dystopian sci-fi YA series from the New York Times bestselling author Colleen Houck

Warning all Astronauts:
COLONY BOUNDARY WARNING!
PERMISSION TO ENTER ALIEN FOREST IS REQUIRED
NOTE: NO RESCUE ATTEMPTS WILL BE MADE

In the future, a terraforming ship lands on a perfectly green planet.
Two perfect young men, one a budding colony leader, the other an engineer, compete for the affection of one perfect young woman training as a botanist.

The only problem?
She’s not perfect.
Astra has a secret.
A big one.
And someone or some thing just maybe trying to kill her for it
.
.
.

Deadly toxins can be hidden inside the most beautiful flowers.

That's what Astra Meador's famous biophysicist mother taught her.

As her mother's apprentice, Astra has developed skills in botany, chemistry, medicine, and, most importantly, in keeping secrets.

In fact keeping Astra's secret was the reason her family decided to leave the Earth and join a terraforming mission to colonize a distant planet called Crillain IV. But when Astra wakes early from hypersleep, she discovers that her mother never made it onboard, her father died in transit and his body has been ejected from the ship, and she suspects that she's not the only one awake.

When the ship finally lands and she's reunited with her brother, Nash, Astra hopes to settle into a new life, especially when she meets the charming young engineer, Jax, and is recruited by the mission commander to train alongside his handsome son to be a future leader of the small colony.

Then Astra learns that she's not the only one with a dark secret.

As both young men contend for her affection, Astra searches for answers, trying to determine who to trust. But with theft and murder occurring in the colony along with the sudden disappearance of her beloved brother, Astra can't listen to the whisperings of her heart, especially when someone or something else on the planet is whispering to her mind even louder.

Review: Wicked Lies

Published 6/22/20


My power doesn’t lie but everyone else does…

Ever since Beckett Dustwick walked into my life, I’ve only wanted one thing…him. To bad he doesn’t feel the same way. Our soulmate mark tells me we are destined to be together an important fact he lied about. But a broken heart won’t stop me from showing him exactly what I think. He may have started this game, but I will finish it.


Our enemies are growing in number with each passing moment. And the fight for the warlock council has never be more dangerous. It’ll take all of the heirs to bring them down along with their mysterious benefactor. We’re in the fight of our lives and I want to turn to Beckett, to trust him. But he’s been lying to me in a big away and I’ve learned the hardest lesson of all. In the end…everyone lies.





My Opinion


Wicked Lies (The Royals: Warlock Court Book 3) is the third book in the second “season” of The Royals. At the end of Wicked Queen, Beck and Grayson are sent home to sort out their houses (warlock and vampire) this is Beck’s story. While you don’t have to start with the first set of books, I highly recommend it. There will be spoilers from the first season as well as the first two books in this season, Wicked Omen and Wicked Wish in this review- consider yourself warned.

Astrid’s life is going well, pretty great. She is in a school to learn her powers, which are getting stronger. Her human bestie, Tilly is with her- the first human ever at Warlock Academy. She has a soulmate, that is keeping their bond a secret. So maybe her life isn’t so great after all. Why would her soulmate want to keep her a secret? As the saying goes Hell has no fury as a woman scorn, look out Beckett! Speaking of looking out, the warlock council is making a power play. Will the heirs be able to stop them?

The friendship of Astrid, Tilly and Ophelia grow into a beautiful trio of girl power. One hundred percent adore how they are always willing to support the other. Ophelia has no clue what Beckett did to earn Astrid’s wrath; she just knows that Astrid is hello kitty pissed. She jumps to help Astrid with her revenge all the same. Speaking of revenge- our girl sure is creative! I mean, the things that Beckett endures well it would make a wicked warlock proud.

Beckett has a lot going on. The pressure of being the heir that leads the others is getting to him. He has no clue why his soulmate is angry with him. The warlock council is trying to ensure that they stay in power forever. The fallen cannot help him, thanks to the rules. So, the ultimate decision on how to respond to the council is up to him. 

The other heirs: Cross is in his happy place, beside Ophelia. Man is whipped and it shows, since they deserve their happy ending no one minds too much. They both bring their A game to the fight. Logan is well Logan. Sometimes he is MIA, I mean dude is dating a warlock. Maze steps up to a whole new level of wicked. He is one powerful warlock! I think honestly, he broke me this time as in I had to step away from the scene, pop some popcorn and take a deep breathe kinda break. What he sees, relives over and over again, a lesser man would not have responded his way. Tears formed, hand over mouth how the heck will they fix this? So many questions…

This one hits the ground running and you do not stop! Be prepared to feel all the feels, ALL THE FEELS because the heirs all bring it this time. The raw emotions that this book provokes will have you sitting with goosebumps on your arms, your hands shaking and tears- yes actual tears-in your eyes. The pop culture references sprinkled throughout the book will make any fangirl/boy heart burst with happiness. That ending, what a wicked ending it is. It will leave you stunned, blinking, thinking what the actual-there is no way it ends here. It does, and the link to the next one says it won’t be here until October. 


My Rating
5 stars out of 5 stars


Favorite Quote “He bleeds, so technically I can kill him.”

Alessandra is tired of being overlooked, but she has a plan to gain power:


1) Woo the Shadow King.
2) Marry him.
3) Kill him and take his kingdom for herself.

No one knows the extent of the freshly crowned Shadow King’s power. Some say he can command the shadows that swirl around him to do his bidding. Others say they speak to him, whispering the thoughts of his enemies. Regardless, Alessandra knows what she deserves, and she’s going to do everything within her power to get it.

But Alessandra’s not the only one trying to kill the king. As attempts on his life are made, she finds herself trying to keep him alive long enough for him to make her his queen—all while struggling not to lose her heart. After all, who better for a Shadow King than a cunning, villainous queen?

Teaser Tuesday (23) Psychic Witch

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Teaser One


“You’re here in this mansion with the most powerful warlock in the world—who also happens to be sexy as hell and wants you—for your protection, Marnie. Literally to keep you alive. Is it that hard to believe that the threat against is very real and would also be something really difficult for you to take on by yourself?"

Psychic Witch Kindle Location 168

Sometimes your bestie has to hit you with the truth. Sometimes it hurts. Anya sure enough is not going to lie to make you feel better

Teaser Two


“What is your problem? This is my decision,” I snapped. “That may be, but it’s a selfish and cowardly one,” he fired back, fists clenched, body tense, eyes like hazel flames.

Psychic Witch Kindle Location 1800

I would so love to have a heart to heart with Marnie to explain that the problem was. It is called love silly, and boy does he love you.


Teaser Three


“Very few women refuse me, Marnie. Usually it is my charm that they find irresistible. Or my tales of bravery for the witching world.”

Psychic Witch Kindle Location 2261

If a guy said that to me, I would refuse him too. What a douchebag!

Review: Of Flame and Fury

Published March 24, 2020 



Taran Wird, the loudmouth mistress of flame and lightning, didn’t want to attend the formal gathering of the supernatural elite. She did so only to help to unite the supreme beings in attendance in one common goal: protecting Taran’s sister, Celia.

Celia is pregnant with alpha werewolf Aric Connor’s child, the same child prophesized to save the world from uprising evil. Evil wants this child dead before he is born and, more importantly, before he can grow strong enough to stop it.

Taran and her werewolf lover, Gemini, put plans in place to protect Celia. Master Vampire Misha Aleksandr and his clan also swear their allegiance to Celia and vow to keep her from harm. The witches even cast protection spells around the manor to curse anyone with malintent who enters. Nothing was supposed to go wrong, except everything did.

Creatures that shouldn’t exist stalk the grounds and invade the premises, and every curse meant to shield the guests turns against them. No one counted on the powerful being who arrived uninvited. But he’s here, manipulating the magic enclosing the estate to work in his favor.

As body counts rise and allies become enemies, chances are Celia won’t survive the night. But evil never counted on how hard Taran Wird would fight, even at the expense of her life. 

My Opinion 


I have been reading about the Wird sisters (The Weird Girls series) since 2012, every book now is like returning home to see old friends. The Weird Girls series had six books in them, followed by this Flame series a spin off with Taran the loud, vocal, no holds barred sister. This book marks the end of Taran and Gemini’s spin-off. I have been reading about the Wird sisters (The Weird Girls series) since 2012, every book now is like returning home to see old friends. I suggest reading them in order, and since this is the last book in the Flames spin-off there may be spoilers from the previous books. 

Celia and Aric cannot catch a break, after all they have been through you would expect at least for them to get their happily ever after and a rocking chair on the front porch. No such luck, their child has been prophesied to bring about peace to the supernatural world and well there are some supes out there that really don’t want that. So there is a supernatural of summit of sorts to find allies to help protect her. Every precaution was taken to protect her, yet evil still attacks the manor. Fate deals them a heavy hand, the creatures they have to fight are well inventive to say the least. Destiny tries to intervene but Fate’s touch may just be the end for them. Will Taran be able to protect the rock of the Wird household or will the sisters fall one by one? 

I absolutely love Taran! She was my favorite sister in the original series and so when she got her own spin-off I knew I was along for a fabulous fun filled ride. Throw her spunky, spirited, snarky sailor mouth in and I am there, all day every day. I want her to be one of my best friends and here is why. Over the last nine books you see character development like no other. Not only that, she still retains the elements that made her unique from the beginning. Taran has always been a powerhouse, yet sometimes fear or the opinions of others would prevent her from showing off her kick-butt self. No more! All she needed was her sister to be in danger and the girl comes in with the gloves off, swinging. In this book she is gusty, aggressive and determined to save her sister and her unborn nephew. To top this book sundae off, Gemini, her love interest since the beginning is absolutely the cherry! 

Gemini has dealt with Taran’s sweet side, and her nutty side but dang her protective side has not come out like this before now. Instead of holding our girl back, Gemini supports her totally, 100%. Which is well hellva refreshing. Yes, he tells her to be careful then he kisses her and gets back into the fight. The fight last the ENTIRE book! How freaking awesome is that, he doesn’t doubt her once. Not once, which is really hard for an alpha male with his mate. His love, faith and pride in her shines through everything he does. The fact that he understands her and embraces all aspects of her personality makes him the perfect mate for her. 

The Wird sisters are squad goals. Seriously, the mixture of personalities, talents and abilities shine through their love for one another. Jealously never ever colors their relationships with each other. Always together, always supporting and fighting for each other. When I say there is a mixture of personalities I mean it. While I love the action, the suspense and the romance: it is the sister’s love for each other that made this entire series for me. That love shines through in all that they do in this book. 

OH MY GOODNESS! This one starts off with a bang and the hits just keep on coming all the way to the end. If you want an action-packed roller coaster of a ride, with a little dose of romance and tension mixed in then you need to read this. Adrenaline pumping, nerve wrecking, screaming at the book sprinkled with awe moments sealed the deal, this is still one of my favorite series! Where we will go from here only Cecy Robson knows but I am straight up praying that we find out what is going on between Bren and Emme because something is sure enough going on between them. 

My Rating 5 out of 5 stars

Teaser Two

Every inmate is serving a death sentence with the option to push back their execution date by six months if they opt into "Delays", scientific and medical experiments for the benefit of the elite in the outside world. But rumors of a war on the outside are spreading amongst the inmates, and before they know it, their tortuous routine becomes disrupted. The government issued rain stops falling. Strange things are happening to the guards. And it's not long until the inmates are left alone inside the prison.

Were the chains that shackled Luka to his cell the only instruments left to keep him safe? He must overcome fellow prisoners hell-bent on killing him, the warden losing her mind, the rabid rats in the train tunnels, and a population turned into murderous monsters to try and break out of The Loop, save his family, and discover who is responsible for the chaos that has been inflicted upon the world.

Review: Darkmore Penitentiary



Author Caroline Peckham, Susanne Valenti
Format e-ARC
Print Length 563 pages
Publisher self
Published March 29, 2020




“We're going to own you.”
“We're going to break you.”
“When we're through with you, you won’t remember life before you were ours.”
That’s what they whisper as I pass their cells.

Ha. Guess what bastardos? I’m Rosalie Oscura, champion underground cage-fighter and freaking Alpha Werewolf from the infamous Oscura Clan. My family wrote the book on criminal organisations and I’ll be ruling this place by the time the next moon rises.

PapĂ  always said my hot head would land me in here one day. The supernatural prison they call Darkmore Penitentiary. Where they send the cruellest, most dangerous Fae in Solaria. Like me apparently.

I’ve always had a thing for Alpha males, but the ones in here don’t have a thing for me. Especially after what I did to them…

I accidentally insulted a ruthless Lion Shifter and riled up his army of cutthroat followers.

I may have enraged the sinful Incubus who’s been condemned to isolation for committing an unspeakable crime.

Despite my better judgement, I taunted the sinister Vampire guard who has a dark vendetta against me.

And I kinda deceived the black-hearted Werewolf who rules over my sworn enemies. Though I blame fate for that one – bitch never was on my side.

I don’t know why I’m surprised, I always did have a knack for getting into trouble.

Just look at my criminal record:

Driving Under the Influence of the Moon (I’m a Werewolf, I’m always under the influence of the moon, duh)
One count of MIPS - Minor in Possession of Stardust (I’m just glad they never figured out why I was using it)
Bedazzlement (I can’t help it if I dazzle people into giving me their money)
Alpha Wolf Status Abuse (It’s calling being a leader, idiotas)
Hijacking a Pegasus and riding him through a rainbow on private property (Totally his idea)
Coercing two members of law enforcement to dance naked on the top of their vehicle for seven hours (What’s not hilarious about that?)
Bank Robbery (All that gold was getting lonely stuck in that vault)
Murdering a security guard (Alright I regret that one, but it was a total accident)
So maybe I deserve to be in prison, but do you want to know a secret?

I planned to get sent to Darkmore Penitentiary.

I’ve come to break out the most notorious criminal in Solaria.

The trouble is, I need the help of the four Alpha males to get out of here. And they happen to hate each other almost as much as they hate me.

But I always did love a challenge.

How hard could it be to make them accept me as their leader?

This is an RH set in the world of Solaria after the events of Zodiac Academy and Dark Fae and contains some character crossover but can be read as a standalone series without having read the other books.

My Opinion


This is a spin-off series of Zodiac Academy (original series) and Dark Fae (spin-off). I recommend reading them first. There may be spoilers from a book or two in these series within my review. Also, this is one of only two reverse harems I would recommend ever- it may help that the other one is written by this dynamic sister duo as well. Consider yourself warned.

In the Dark Fae series, we met Rosalie as Dante’s little cousin. Well, honey, I am here to tell you, she has grown up and dang does she have a set of brass balls on her. She purposely gets herself to a maximum fae prison, to bust someone out of the prison. All with Dante’s blessing and help. Hold the phone, say what? Yeah, not only that but she and Dante are dual alpha’s to their pack. There is a lot of love between these two and you can tell that the family blood is strong.

Rosalie, herself is a moon wolf, which while wolf shifters are a dime a dozen- moon wolves are actually extremely rare. This rarity does not make her a special snowflake though. Instead, she acknowledges it, owns that it may give her an edge and then moves on. This is one bad ass main heroine and I gotta say I kinda love her. She knows herself, her likes/dislikes- she is self-aware and self-assured. She is bold, feisty and a little bit reckless. Since she is a wolf shifter, polygamy is in their blood so move on to the love interests.

Cain is the head officer and has been assigned as Rosalie’s CO. He is a vampire, who has a flashy edge to him. He is tough, by the book with a dark secret. Rosalie figures out what he likes pretty early on and is not afraid to use it to her advantage. Will he realize he is being played? Is he being played? Only the next book will tell.

Roary is Rosalie’s childhood crush. She is also the reason she agreed to do the inside job. He knows he is ten years her senior, and while he is attracted to her, he tries to keep her at a distance. I hated him in the Dark Fae series, I wanted Elise to punch him. In this book though, I wanted to be his bestie. Poor Roary, Rosalie has to get him outta this prison.

Sin is Rosalie’s target. Her mission break him out of this maximum security prison. If only she can, if only his crazy doesn’t screw it up. I feel kinda bad for Sin. I want to think he is misunderstood. Is he though? Or is he just crazy.

Ethan is the alpha of the Lunar Brotherhood. First what do you mean he is the alpha and second, dang is he hot, like HOTT hot. Yepper, worthy of the double T. Those of y’all who know me well, know that not a lot are worthy of the double T. He is also an ass, the fact that he tries to keep him and Rosalie being mated a secret pisses me off to no end. Dude needs to man up. I get why but dang, that has to hurt my girl’s ego a little.

Rosalie is not just up against the warden and guards in the prison. She needs to find out what is going on in the Psych ward- everyone does. She pissed off a rival gang leader, the old Oscura prison alpha-who she unseated, and there is a really weird guy name Plunger that yeah is just weird. Will she be able to get all of her men outta of there alive? Will she come out of there alive? Or will the prison break her? I have no clue but with the cliffhanger that we are left with dang it I need the next edition like now. 


My Rating 5 out of 5 stars
