Shifter and Vampire True Mates story. 

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep. 

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf. 

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army. 

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy. 

This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG. 
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

It has been some time since I have read the first book in this series Prophesy which I enjoyed a lot. Thankfully as soon as I started reading this one, everything about the first book came back to me. I love when that happens. I also remembered how bad I wanted to read Alek and Belleron’s story…and let me tell you, I was not disappointed !!

so good gif - Google zoeken

This book starts exactly where the last when left us, and just so you know…it can NOT be read as a stand-alone. You won’t understand what the hell is happening, so if you want to read this series, start with the book 1 !! 

Last time we saw Alek and Bell, things were quite strained… with Alek pretty much throwing (read attacking) himself at Bell. 

Alek has always wanted a mate…to find someone to truly love him, and he can’t believe that fate has given him a chance in the form of Lord High vampire, Belleron Liatos. But how can he be the perfect “beloved” when he is in fact so broken inside… Broken into three separate pieces to be exact. How can he ever explain all that he is to his one true love…

And there is no way he will be able to hide/supress his inner being(s)

Bell was pretty surprised, finding out his “beloved” turned out to be a shifter with apparent control issues. What he is even more surprised about.. is what he sees lurking when he looks into the eyes of his love…and how much it’s pulling him in. 

I loved this series when I started it, but I love it even more now. It is exactly what I look for in a shifter/vampire story. It kept me at the edge of my seat while still making me laugh and swoon. I even cried a little tear!

If you love vampires and shifters as much as I do, then you should definitely give this one a try. I was a bit surprised with the medium steam-level because I am used to the very steamy “Nothing Special” series by A.E. Via. No worries though, there is still some very nice sexing going on !!

I myself can’t wait for the next book which I am sure (read hope) will be Mac’s.

Ever since I found out that Sloane Kennedy was writing an MMMM story, I have been on pins and needles to read it.

I haven’t always been a MMM fan, but Sloane’s books changed this in a big way and I was sure she was gonna rock this foursome as well.

I was right (<- not surprising), at least that’s how I feel about it !!! Continue reading

Blurb:
In #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken’s scorching series, revenge is a justified pleasure…Isla made one teeny little mistake. Now she and her PI company, Dirty Exes, are being targeted by one seriously angry and furiously sexy ex-quarterback. Jessie freakin’ Beckett. But there’s no way some NFL superhunk is going to take her business away. If only he didn’t make her so hot—and bothered.

Jessie wants payback for a ruined reputation. His plan? Top secret. His hard-to-hide arousal for Isla? Not so much. Especially when they let down their guards and sneak a kiss. Like any juicy scandal, it goes so viral, so fast, that only a good lie can combat the bad press. Mortal enemies in a fling? No way. Um…this is love!

Actually…could it be?

Isla’s not faking it. Jessie can’t. As the game of let’s pretend gets real, Jessie forgets all about revenge. That’s the problem. His plan is already out of his control. Now it could undo everything they’ve been trying to build. Coming clean may be the only thing that can save it.  …. click to see Wendy’s review !!    Continue reading

Now I have to be honest here and say that I am even though I really enjoy the “Pelican Bay” series… the “Protectors” are just a bit more my style.  This series is a bit different…sweeter and milder I would say, though it still deals with multiple triggers… Continue reading

This is book 6 in the in the Protectors series and just like all the other ones, I absolutely loved this one.

This time it is Dante and Magnus’ turn.

We have been introduced to Magnus in the previous books. He is a 41 year old (former) Texas Ranger, who is still very much hurting over the loss of his daughter. His daughter disappeared, when she was 17 years old after she ran away from home. She took her, then 3 year old, son with her. After searching and hoping for 2 years, it has now become very clear, that even though his grandson Matty was saved by Tate, his daughter did not survive. Magnus is really struggeling with the fact, that he will never know what exactly happend to his daughter, but thankfully he has the love and support of a whole new family. Continue reading
