My Review: FIRST TO FALL by Alexa Whitewolf

First To Fall

(Moonlight Rogues #1)

by Alexa Whitewolf

.

1E663687-8B9C-456E-B405-5583F84883FAHe was given a new life, a new choice, a new path…

Once upon a time, Dominic Kosta didn’t have a last name. In fact, he had nothing growing up in a secluded orphanage in the mountains of Transylvania. Then an American couple adopted him, and life changed. He left behind the old
legends, the myths, the hunger within him.

He threw it all behind, choosing seclusion and a little town….

Rockland Creek may be a hole in the middle of nowhere, but Dom’s happy there. Life has its perks between fixing cars and seducing women. And best of all? There are no rules, other than Lucas’. Then Lucrezia San Marco walks in, and draws him in like a moth to a flame. Only, she only has eyes for Lucas, his boss – and alpha of the pack.

…filled with werewolves.

There’s nothing normal about Rockland Creek – or Dominic’s existence there. But things are about to get worse, and not just because he sees the girl he loves slipping through his fingers.

A war is brewing, eclipsing their romance and dragging old ghosts into town…

As Dominic navigates the murky waters of romance and obedience to his leader, his feelings for Lucrezia can no longer be tamed. But not everyone supports their relationship – and the Reapers have a word or two to say against it. As does Lucrezia’s ex, and the demons he brings with him.

Fire and ice, cold and hot, wolf and human. Dom and Luz will have to combine their differences and learn to compromise, or risk being torn apart by the wave of change unfurling onto Rockland Creek.

Book I in a new series of sizzling werewolves, forgotten folklore and untamed legends.

I was reading over the summary of the book before writing this review. The summary says it all, there’s not much more I can say about the story itself. But I will say, this is one of the best werewolf books I’ve ever read. Alexa Whitewolf was born in Romania and she grew up in the Transylvania region surrounded by epic mountains and a never ending stream of legends and stories. So between the legends and stories she grew up with and a very active imagination, you can see how she came up with the creation of First To Fall where Dominic came from Transylvania and the legends followed him.

I love Dominic (Dom) and Lucrezia (Luz)…they are such an awesome couple. Luz is a bit of a firecracker!! You cannot help but fall in love with Dom and Luz. The others in the pack: Lucas (pack leader), Tristan, and Finn are interesting and have there own story and I hope as the series goes on we get to learn about each pack member and see them get their mate. There’s so much I’d love to talk about, but I will give too much away. But you will love this story, it’s full of romance (of course), werewolves (duh), surprises, twists and turns, so much suspense!! It’s not just some romantic werewolf book, it’s very exciting!! There’s battles and people get hurt. So much happens! I was up late at night finishing it, because I couldn’t put it down!! I highly recommend this one guys!! 5++ Stars!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

MY REVIEW 

This book is full of SO MUCH YUMMY GOODNESS!!!! Yes, Luc is as Yummy as Daemon!!!! Except Luc has that quirky, weird thing he had going on when we met him in the Lux Series. There are some really great swoon-worthy romance moments between Luc and Evie too!! But it also has the good and bad aliens, the action, the suspense and the shock factor! The Darkest Star is definitely a great start to another of JLA’s promising new SciFi/Romance Series!
When I kept reading that you will love Luc as much, if not more than Daemon, I said no way. But IT IS SOOO TRUE!!! I loved Daemon, I was (and still am) a HUGE Daemon fan!! But Luc is really something special!!! You have to experience him to believe it!! And YES, you will see some of those we love from the Lux series! In fact, as this series goes on we will see more!! But I am now such a HUGE Luc fan!!! Yes, he’s my favorite now!!
If you love the Lux series then you are DEFINITELY going to LOVE this!! If you haven’t read the Lux series, what are you waiting for? Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of the best and her series are awesome, especially the Lux and now this spin off series!! Highly, HIGHLY recommend this!!! 5+5+5+ Stars!!!

Book Blitz: The Warrior Princess (Alinthia #3) by Siobhan Davis

The Warrior Princess
Siobhan Davis
(Alinthia #3)
Publication date: August 28th 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

She’ll tear the galaxy apart to save them…

Captured by a special, secret government agency, Alinthia is now facing another new reality—one where she’s separated from the four guys who have come to mean so much to her. But she has faith in Dane, Coop, Maddox, and Beck, and she refuses to give up hope.

Until she discovers General Arantu and his despicable daughter, have imprisoned her protectors and time is running out to save them.

Desperate to escape the government’s clutches and rescue her loved ones, Alinthia finds unlikely allies in the strangest of places. With their help, she finally understands what is required to assume full control of her powers and fulfil her legacy.

However, the more she uncovers about herself and her abilities, the more she understands how fragile the line is between good and evil, darkness and light, right and wrong.

Will she make the ultimate sacrifice in the name of love, or are there some lines that can’t ever be crossed?

The third book in the enchanting Alinthia series is intended for readers aged seventeen and older. This is upper YA/NA crossover reverse harem paranormal romance which gets steamier as the series develops. This is not a standalone read. Full-length novel.

Praise for The Warrior Princess:

“Oh wow! nonstop excitement from start to finish!!” TJ Loves to Read

“This latest installment had me laughing, crying, punching the air in excitement, and so many other feelings while I flew through the chapters as usual.”Molly. Goodreads reviewer

Cooper

I come to, groaning as several of my senses are assaulted at once. A putrid, decaying smell tickles my nostrils, and I’d probably puke if I was human and capable of vomiting. Moans, cries, and screams filter into the room from somewhere outside. Shivers tiptoe up my spine as a blast of cold air sweeps over me, and my arms ache like a bitch. A dull pounding in my head and pain burning at the back of my eyes make seeing difficult, but I push through my discomfort, forcing myself back to consciousness.

Slowly, my vision clears, and my surroundings come into focus.

Mad Dog and Beck are still unconscious,” Dane says into my mind.

Where are we, and how the fuck did we get here?” The last thing I remember is being ambushed by Alandra and a bunch of goons outside Kylie’s house. I put up the mother of all fights, but I was outnumbered, and they had the element of surprise. It’s embarrassing how easily they overpowered me after that.

My head spins around, my eyes scanning the small cell. The walls are exposed stone, and the floors are coarse black slate. It’s dirty, cold, and unforgiving under my butt. There is little natural light in the room, the only glimmer of brightness trickling in through a small, open window above my head.

Beck, Maddox, and Dane are all stripped to their boxers, arms elevated, and wrists bound together, chained to the stone wall. I look down at myself, confirming I’m in the same predicament. “Where’s Alinthia?” The connection that bonds my brothers and I to our girl thrashes anxiously about, trying and failing to locate our missing piece. “Where is she, Dane?

It’s not good, Coop, and it’s all my fault.

This book had me turning pages so fast, my heart pumping and at times it was because of the steamy connection between Sensei/Raiden and Sass/Ayla and other times it was because of the intense things going on, which I won’t mention too much because I don’t want to give too much away.
Sensei and Sass are complete opposites, and that confuses him in a way. Because their connection is very strong. He longs for her when she’s not around, and when she is they can’t keep their hands off each other. Sass has a very bold personality, she just says it like it is and doesn’t take slack from anyone. And like Sensei says, she talks like a teenage boy. You can see how she got the name Sass. But she grew up without a mother, and two younger brothers to torment her. She works in her father’s Auto Repair Garage with all men and has had to learn to stand her ground. I love Sass!!! She is a great character!!! But Sensei doesn’t know what to make of her, but he’s drawn to her.
But with the Yakuza around, and his family hiding out at the club, he has got to stay focused. But no matter how hard he tries, it all comes back to Sass!!
Once again, we see the beauty of the brotherhood in this book. I love how well K E Osborn portrays this. How tight that bond really is, and how they are willing to die for each other. Plus we get a hint at who the next book will be about!! I can’t wait!!
I LOVED this book!!!! Between the love story and steaminess, and the level of action/adventure!! The book totally ROCKS!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Review for Rescuing Prince Charming by Edward Hoornaert

563661B9-F13F-427D-84F2-E2F472BBBFDEDusty Johnson, a self-styled ordinary, everyday woman, responds with extraordinary heroism to saboteurs trying to bomb the prototype of Earth’s first starship. She wants to return to anonymity, but her moment of courage propels her ever deeper into danger that tears the scabs off her dark past—and thrusts her into the arms of the unattainable man of her dreams.

Reese Eaglesbrood, an alien prince, yearns to restore his tattered reputation by guiding the starship project to completion, but his fascination with the unassuming heroine threatens to undermine his fragile authority. Shunning Dusty is necessary, yet unthinkable—and when the saboteurs strike again, she may be his only ally against Earth’s darkest enemies.

MY REVIEW:

This book was a pleasant surprise for me!! It was a lot of fun! It covers a number of genres. It is action packed, full of adventure, suspense, mystery, romance, sci-fi, humor and so much more! Like I said, it was a lot of fun!

The beginning starts out with a bang, I couldn’t put it down! And even though there were times that the book wasn’t as adventurous or action packed, it kept my interest throughout. I’m telling you…I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN!!!

The characters were really well written. I loved seeing Dusty and Reese’s relationship develop. The romance in this book was so good! I WANT MORE OF DUSTY AND REESE!!!!

Also, I enjoyed the alien part of it too, reading about their backgrounds and how they came to be on earth was really good.

Though this is the 4th book in a series, it can be read as a standalone (as I did). But after reading it, I now want to know more about the other characters that had their own stories. I definitely recommend this, and I plan on reading more books from this series. Edward Hoornaert has won me over as a fan!!!

ZENKA by Alison Brodie

9089CD6B-29B7-4DAC-BF63-CFA2C38A35D1

Revenge, murder and meeting the Family at Christmas

When London mob boss, Jack Murray, discovers he has a son, his joy is short-lived: Nicholas is not a chip off the old block; he’s a nurse whose patients call him an “angel”.

Jack is not happy. He needs someone with balls – not a halo – to inherit the Firm. Zenka takes charge. Using her feminine wiles and gangland contacts she will bring out the gorilla in Nicholas. Her tactics are unusual, and illegal, and things soon start to spiral out of control.

“Don’t vorry, Jack. Ven I am finished vith Nicholas he vill be dog’s bollocks just like his papa” –Zenka

MY THOUGHTS:

Alison Brodie is a new to me and I am really impressed!! I REALLY look forward to what she has coming next. Alison, I will be staying with you for the ride!!!

ZENKA is fun, exciting, hysterically funny and filled with some pretty intense scenes!! It’s a wild and fun ride!! I was giggling, laughing, and snorting out loud throughout the book!! A bit awkward if you’re out in public. I loved the characters and really got invested. There were times I had tears running down my face (not from laughing) because I was happy for the characters or my heart went out to them. It was just such a beautifully written story! Not to mention the accents!! I LOVED the accents!!! ZENKA’S was the most fun! She is Hungarian, and a fiesty one at that! It vas so much fun to read vhat she says in book!! Lol. Every once in a while between chapters she writes to her friend, Alina, in Hungary. Those letters usually reveal what ZENKA is thinking, and things we wouldn’t know otherwise. But she’s pretty funny in those letters. I love ZENKA…she just cracks me up!!
I JUST WANT TO SEE THIS BOOK AS A MOVIE, I WOULD LOVE IT!!!!

Oh, there’s also Cockney slang. But Alison, so obligingly, put a Cockney translation page. I bookmarked it on my kindle so that I could easily refer back to it. I didn’t have to very much though, you catch on real quick.

I would recommend this book to everyone, unless you hate to laugh…then don’t read it!! Haha….no, really…READ THIS BOOK!!! YOU’LL LOVE IT!!!!
