This is the last book in Rafe and Eva’s trilogy and we finally get to see what will happen to the band, now that Rafe has chosen Eva over everything else…

you mean the world to me gif - Google Zoeken

I figured with the ending of the previous book that this one would be chockful of angst but turned out I was wrong on that count… Eva and Rafe finally get to be who they want to be… a couple in love. No more hiding, no more pretending.

It also means a little adjusting for Levi though. I actually wanted a bit more on that front, to be honest. It all felt a bit too easy maybe.

From the very beginning, which means the first book, I have been a Levi fan and that hasn’t changed. So even though I enjoyed reading about Rafe and Eva and even though I wanted them to have their hea… I wanted to read about Levi more.

you are my favorite gif - Google Zoeken

This book did feel a bit like the intro to his story so I can only hope it is gonna be awesome and he will find the love he so hugely deserves.

Release day Review “Obsessed” (The Protectors #13) by Sloane Kennedy

42603697. sy475

277302437068211 BLURB

I wanted him from the moment I laid eyes on him and from that point on, the question wasn’t if I’d have him but when


Thirty-five-year-old Matias de la Vega is good at one thing and one thing only. Though he doesn’t officially carry the title of killer when it comes to his role in an underground vigilante group, he’s got no problem getting his hands dirty if it means getting justice for those who can’t get it on their own.


Such is the case when single dad Sam Wittier is confronted by a stalker bent on murder. While neutralizing the threat is all in a day’s work for Matias, what comes after is anything but. Although Matias isn’t particularly surprised by his attraction to the older Sam, his inability to walk away from the still-grieving widower is a complication.
An unexpected and dangerous complication…


Nothing about the mysterious Matias makes sense to me. The emotionally distant soldier says what he means and takes what he wants. And for whatever reason, what he wants is me. That should have me running for the hills. It should, but it doesn’t…
For forty-eight-year-old Sam Wittier, life is as good as it’s been since he lost the man of his dreams more than two decades earlier. After handing the reins of his successful business over to his older son, Sam is happy to settle into the quiet, simple life of being a full-time single dad to his newly adopted little boy.


Unfortunately, life didn’t get the message. After nearly losing everything to a deranged stalker, Sam finds himself face to face with a man who is anything but quiet and simple. There’s no reason he should want the unpredictable, take-no-prisoners Matias in his life or his bed, but just like life, his body isn’t getting the message.
One night with Sam is all I need to get him out of my head for good. One night will be enough to end my obsession with him. It has to be…


While Sam and Matias share a white-hot chemistry that neither has ever known before, that’s about all they have in common. But as one passionate encounter leads to another and the line between obsession and need begins to blur, will Matias and Sam find that maybe they aren’t so different after all? And what will that mean for the ghosts of the past that have haunted each man for so long?


The ghosts that are willing to be buried as well as the ones that aren’t…

Everyone that knows me, also knows that Sloane Kennedy’s “Protectors series is one of my all-time favorite series….that along with all the other amazing spin-off’s she has written. I can’t believe this is already the 13th book in the series!! 

And I still hope there will be many many more…

many more gif - Google Zoeken

I do want to give some advice to those of you planning to read this book (and you should). I am normally a pretty reckless reader…meaning, I don’t care about reading orders and all that, I just do what I want…

i do what i want gif - Google Zoeken

..But when it comes to this series, I do recommend to read all the books in order, and in this case, to also read the novella, Protecting Elliot. If you don’t, you might feel like you have jumped into an ongoing story and you could get a bit confused.

Protecting Elliot is about Cruz and Elliot. Cruz is Matias‘ brother and Elliot is Sam‘s son. Matias and Sam are the main characters of this story. They meet through a horrific ordeal at the end of novella 9,5 and their story picks right up in this one. 

We get a bit of an age gap, which I always think is yummy and there is plenty of hurt/comfort for those graving it… It also wouldn’t be a Sloane Kennedy book without the delicious steamy scenes 😛

Preconceito 0

As is the case with most of the main characters in this series, both men carry some substantial emotional /psychological baggage. But no worries…they will work it out together in plenty of ways 😉

That said, I am gonna be honest and admit that this one was not my favorite of the series. I think this is mostly because I feel nothing for the “dead spouse” trope. I usually skip these kinds of tropes, but we are talking Sloane Kennedy here and there is no way I was gonna skip this book. So…this one not being my fave..it’s a personal issue and I think most won’t have that problem and are gonna love everything about it. 

Besides, even I can’t love them all the same, and I did still enjoy reading it, even though reading, for me in these hard times, is not the same. I find the most comfort in my golden oldies right now and so… 

I think it might be time for a “Sloane Kennedy series” re-read ….

This was a nice read… very entertaining. If I don’t get to read an MC book every now and then, I get really cranky and Chantal Fernando is definitely one of my go-to MC authors 😉

This book can be read as a stand-alone, though I find reading them in order does make teh reading more pleasurable, because of all the side-characters.

This time around we get Temper’s story, the president of the Knights of Fury MC. I always enjoy the president’s books a tad bit more…they are just that tad bit more alpha 😛

Abbie was also a wonderful character and the age gap trope was the lovely sprinkle on top.

For me, this book was the perfect blend of fun, action, suspense, and romance. I had a wonderful time reading it and I am curious to see what’s next.

Review “Shadow of the Fox Series”, by Julie Kagawa

36672988. sy475 41733208. sy475 41733219. sy475

Shadow of the Fox / Soul of the Sword / Night of the Dragon

By Julie Kagawa


cooltext315647963484518

I have always had a fascination with Japanese culture and if you are into the beautiful old customs of this island and also have a love for folklore, then these books are as perfect for you as they were for me.

The story centers around a yokai which is a Japanese monster, spirit or demon. In this case it is half-kitsune, which is a fox most commonly known for being a trickster. The young kitsune girl grows up as an orphan in the sheltered environment of a monastery where they teach her that she should keep a tight lead on her fox side (even hide them) and focus on her human aspects as much as possible. Kitsunes are able to create powerful illusions. 

Known for the many tricks she plays on unsuspecting monks and people around her, she comes home late one evening  to find the monastery destroyed by a multitude of demons, including a massive Oni. Still she manages to slip into the monastery to find the monks who taught and raised her. Most of them are already dead, but Master Isao is temporarily protected by the monks who are still living. He tells her the monks have really been guardians of a piece of the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers all this time and now he wishes to give the scroll to her so she can bring it to the other guardians. 

Once every thousand years, the Kami (which is a greater God) dragon will grant a wish to the human who has the scroll. Some time in the past the scroll was divided into three pieces after a wish caused the land to be plunged into chaos and ruin. Since it has been a thousand years since the last wish many different parties are simultaneously in pursuit of the pieces of the scroll.

Yumeko, the kitsune, is in complete shock by all that has happened but she finds a way to escape the monastery and the demons with the small lacquered box containing the scroll.

In the woods nearby she runs into a young Samurai by the name of Kage Tatsumi. He is headed towards the monastery but the young girl convinces him to travel with her instead, telling him the monks sent their piece of the scrolls to another temple. Eager to obtain the scroll for his clan, the Shadow clan, he offers her his protection in exchange for leading him to the hidden temple.

Together they embark on a journey that leads them to encounter many different obstacles and other yokai from old Japanese folklore. They also accumulate a great group of, sometimes unexpected, allies. 

The POV changes from Yumeko to Tatsumi but it is indicated at the beginning of the chapter so it is not confusing.

I personally loved these books and I couldn’t wait to get back to reading them! The first two were better than the last book but it did all come together in the end. I definitely recommend reading this trilogy. There are a lot of Japanese words used but there is a dictionary of those words at the back.

The only thing missing would have perhaps been some illustrations of the different monsters and demons. Although there are good descriptions of them in the book, I found myself Googling some of them just to see what they looked like… 

Hope everyone is staying safe with loads of books!!

Promises Part 2 Cover

Blurb

Roman “Quick” Webb is one badass bounty hunter on the crime-filled streets of Atlanta. He’s fearless when it comes to carrying out his dangerous job alongside his longtime best friend and business partner, Duke. However, there is one thing that has begun to cause Quick concern and it’s the dreadful thought of living out the rest of his life alone.

Dr. Cayson Chauncey has been wildly attracted to the big, tattooed hunter for almost a year, ever since he performed the surgery that saved Quick’s best friend’s life. Cayson must’ve mistaken Quick’s gratitude for something more, because the one time he tried to make his desires known, he was harshly rebuffed and left on the man’s doorstep feeling stupid for hitting on an obviously very straight man.

Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.

Zero Divergence, noun: no deviation from a course or standard.

After a key piece of evidence goes missing, a suspected serial rapist and killer evades prosecution. More than Royce Locke’s reputation is on the line when his investigation into the failed chain of custody suggests Franco Humphries might’ve had inside help. There’s no one Royce trusts more than Sawyer Key to help him right a wrong and uncover the traitor in their midst, but can they do it before the Savannah Strangler strikes again?

Relentless plus fearless equals flawless. Sawyer and Royce have come full circle—from hostile strangers to best friends and lovers. Neither a sniper’s bullet nor an arsonist’s fire could keep them apart, but what about a psychopath hell-bent on revenge? The stakes are high, and there’s no turning back now because the zero hour is upon them. Tick tock.

Zero Divergence is the conclusion to the best-selling Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key’s investigations and evolving relationship. This is a series you MUST read in order. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older.

Trigger warning: Part of the storyline involves coming to terms with a friend’s suicide, which may be difficult for some people to read.

LEX
Even if I wasn’t losing my sight, I never would have seen him coming…
I’ve known my fate for years, but I wasn’t willing to accept it. But as the light in my eyes dims a little more each day, I have no choice but to adapt.

Or not.

The secluded cabin in the north woods of Maine is supposed to be an escape… a place where I can figure out how to move forward with my life… to find out if I even can.

But then he shows up and suddenly I’m facing a new fight…

GIDEON
He wants to be left alone? Fine by me. But I’m not going to watch him just give up…
Wanting to be left alone, that’s something the guy and I have in common. But that’s about it. As far as I’m concerned, he’s just another rich city boy playing at living off the grid for a while. He’s got no idea what it really means to be alone.

My job is to take care of the cabin he’s staying in and that’s it. It doesn’t matter that I can’t stop thinking about why he looks so damn broken or wondering why he stirs something inside of me I thought long dead.

But try as I might, I can’t stay away from him, just like I can’t watch him give up on himself. He may be losing his sight, but I won’t let him lose himself.

I won’t let him become like me…

This is the second book in the “The Four” series, which is a spin-off of the awesome “Protectors” series. It can be read as a stand-alone but maybe it will be more enjoyable after also reading the first book “Forgotten: Luca“.

It has been some time since I got to read a “new” Sloane Kennedy book, so of course, I was over the moon when I found out about the release of this one.

over the moon gif - Google Zoeken

This time we get Lex’s story, and I have got to admit I didn’t remember a single thing about him until I started reading, and then parts of it came back to me. For some reason, I have always been drawn mostly to King and so he was still the freshest in my mind from the first book. 

The reason I didn’t remember a whole lot about Lex, also had to do with the fact that he didn’t play a really big part in the first book. The reason why will become fully clear after reading this one. 

because of reasons gif - Google Zoeken

Lex has been dealing with an extreme complication of his diabetes. Having lived with diabetes since he was young, he knows the struggles of dealing with this disease. Unfortunately, this disease can also cause some major side effects and Lex will now have to deal and accept and turn parts of his life completely around.

He has decided to do this away from his over-protective brothers, who still don’t know anything about what is going on…well except for King that is… 

Lex has tucked himself away in some remote cabin in Maine, where he will try to come to terms with the repercussions of his diabetes. So far he is NOT dealing…and he is not okay. 

i'm not okay gif - Google Zoeken

This is where Gideon comes in. He is the caretaker of the cabin that Lex is staying in and even though their meeting could have gone a bit better, they soon become “friends” of sorts and even learn to rely on each other. Of course, their “feelings” don’t just stop at “friendly”, which is especially shocking for Gideon who has only ever seen himself as straight. No worries though… he is pretty accepting of the fact that he is attracted to a man… We get some nice “exploratory” steamy scenes. 

But both of these guys have a ton of inner demons they are fighting… So… it was a bit of a bumpy ride

hold onto your seats gif - Google Zoeken

I am gonna be honest and say that Lex is not one of my favorite “Sloane Kennedy” characters. I know he had it hard but his running away and overreacting to certain situations (even though logical) got on my nerves a bit. Miscommunication, or in this case, non-communication really bothers me and leaves me yelling at my book!!

I don’t like yelling at my book and my family likes it even less Knipsel

I also felt a bit disappointed with the lack of “Lex’s brothers” in this one.  I would have liked a bit more about them, instead of Gideon’s family. For some reason to me, it felt like Gideon’s family was more important, while we (or I at least) still know how hard things where for Lex’ brothers in the previous book, especially Luca. This book made me feel as though the brothers are really growing apart and that makes me a tad bit sad. 

So this one didn’t leave me with the satisfying feeling I normally have when closing one of Sloane’s books. I did, however, appreciate the little snippet we got at the end about Lex and Gideon going to Vegas to check on Con. It gave me some hope when it comes to Lex and Con’s brotherly bond… 

brothers friends - Google Zoeken

Now, we can’t love them all the same and I am particularly a fan of badass alpha men. So I have this feeling that I am gonna absolutely love Con and King’s books. They have been my two favorites since they were first introduced. With the little hints given in this one….and I hope I am right about those… King’s book should especially rock!! 

That said, I am sure all the hurt/comfort lovers out there are gonna be all over this book !!

Duke Morgan owns and operates one of the largest bail bond companies in Atlanta. Not only does he bond criminals out of jail, he and his notorious group of bounty hunters will also track them down and ensure they show up for court.

Roman ‘Quick’ Webb is Duke’s business partner and best friend. Both men are in their forties and have given up on the happily ever after with the ranch-style home, and white picket fence. They’d both tried it and failed miserably. But they have their friendship and they have the business.

When Quick’s son, Vaughan Webb returns – after seven years – from studying abroad with his law degree in hand, he’s back to claim what he’s always wanted…his fathers’ best friend… Duke Morgan. Vaughan has always claimed to be a classic gentleman with an old soul. He didn’t party and screw up in school like his buddies. He was focused and dedicated to becoming the man worthy of Duke’s love.

It’s a complex and messy situation as Duke and Quick figure out how to still be best friends when one of them is sleeping with his friend’s one and only son. But when Duke is hurt on the job, all the unimportant trivialities fall to the wayside and Vaughan and Quick put their heads together to save Duke.

Police Lieutenants, God and Day are under intense pressure from the chief to take back control of Atlanta’s streets. The last thing their task force needs is a pair of trained killers in town with a personal score to settle.

Take a man and strip him of his ability to feel compassion, empathy, remorse, or any of the emotions that make him human, but leave the ones that ignite rage and aggression and you have the perfect killing machine—now imagine two of them.

Code names Ex and Meridian are synonymous for ‘guaranteed death’ to international terrorists. Two broken men from the same crooked streets, recruited into an unsanctioned government program that few know about. Trained to operate most efficiently—lethally—together.

When Ex returns from an op in Bolivia to learn his little brother has been accidentally killed in a feud between drug gangs, he’s stateside before he can consider the rules he’ll be breaking, and of course Meridian is right beside him. There’s mayhem on the streets of Atlanta and the police are losing control. If Godfrey and his elite team of detectives can’t get the job done then they’d be happy to lighten their caseloads for them. And Ex nor Meridian care about doing it quietly.

“I know who you are.” The man grunted when Ex turned to leave. “You’re the fucking devil.”

Meridian walked past, glaring one final time. “Say that loud enough… maybe God will save you.”

But after their first run-in with the big lieutenant and his protective husband, Day, Ex and Meridian start to reevaluate their own relationship. Wondering if they could be even deadlier if they let loose the feelings for each other that they’ve been forced to suppress for years.

Meridian’s dark eyes stayed locked on his, “A man who can fight beside the one he loves doesn’t make him weaker, Ex—it makes him more dangerous.”

No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a HEA.
Note:
This is a partners-to-lovers, out-for-you, action romance.

Rafe Varik

The troublemaker. The risk taker. The sexy club owner full of wicked promises.

Rafe has devoted his immortal existence to pleasure and causing mischief.

The only ones who can depend on him are his brothers. Of course, that’s very much a Varik thing.

But when the leader of the Arsenault clan specifically requests Rafe’s help in tracking down a killer, he can’t say no.

Sure, Rafe claims he’s doing it for his family. They’ve attracted too many enemies and could use a few allies.

That’s not the whole truth, though.

There’s something about Philippe Arsenault that draws Rafe in. He wants more of Philippe. The vampire leaves him longing for another second in his presence, another taste of his lips, another caress of those perfect fingers.

Yet when it’s all over, what will become of Philippe and Rafe. Because Philippe will always be an Arsenault, and Rafe will always be a Varik.

Saving Rafe is the second book in an MM paranormal romance series that has vampires, betrayal, annoying brothers, music, heartbreak, hope, sexy times, and a pair of star-crossed lovers.

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.

MISSION RULES:
1. Kick everyone’s ass.
2. Do whatever it takes to win.
3. Do your best to distract the competition.
4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

GRANT HUGHES
CALL SIGN: PANTHER

Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.

MISSION RULES:
1. Keep it safe in the air.
2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
3. No distractions. Stay focused.
4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.
With passion this intense, the question remains:
Who’s gonna come out on top?

Sergeant Corbin ‘Syn’ Sydney had dedicated his life to becoming the best detective. So when he heard there was an opening on the notorious Atlanta Narcotics Task Force, he jumped at the chance. But, what he wasn’t ready for was realizing just how lonely he’d made himself, when he observed the loving and dedicated relationship between the two men he served under: Lieutenant Cashel ‘God’ Godfrey and Lieutenant Leonidis Day.

Syn prepared himself to accept his lonely fate until he walked into a small pub and met the long-haired, tattooed bartender, Furious Barkley. Before Syn can even understand why, he’s overcome with feelings he barely recognizes: passion, yearning, craving. And if the dark, lustful gazes are anything to go by, Furious might be feeling the same things for him.

Just two things need to happen before Syn and Furi can give each other what’s been missing from their lives for so long… Syn needs to find the evidence that proves Furi’s innocence of murder, as well as protect him from a past that refuses to let go.

God, Day, Ronowski, and Johnson are still as entertaining as ever…

You’ll swoon over God’s massive take-charge attitude…

You’ll laugh hysterically at Day’s never-ending wit…

You’ll fall in love with Furious’ mysterious, sexy demeanor…

and…

You’ll embrace Syn…

Vaughn Spencer.

They call him an angry god.

To me, he is nothing but a heartless prince.

His parents rule this town, its police, every citizen and boutique on Main Street.

All I own is a nice, juicy grudge against him for that time he almost killed me.

Between hooking up with a different girl every weekend, breaking hearts, noses and rules, Vaughn also finds the time to bully little ole’ me.

I fight back, tooth and nail, never expecting him to chase me across the ocean after we graduate high school.

But here he is, living with me in a dark, looming castle on the outskirts of London.

A fellow intern. A prodigal sculptor. A bloody genius.

They say this place is haunted, and it is.

Carlisle Castle hides two of our most awful secrets.

Vaughn thinks he can kill the ghosts of his past, but what he doesn’t know? It’s my heart he’s slaying.

Angry God is a stand-alone, DARK High School Romance. It deals with sensitive subjects some may find triggering.

Excerpt

“How good are you at keeping secrets, Lenora Astalis?” His voice wrapped around my neck like a noose.

I wanted to cough. I needed to cough. He terrified me. I hated him with the heat and passion of a thousand blazing suns. He made me feel like a scaredy cat and a snitch.

“Oh, yes. If you’re coward enough to pretend you’re asleep, you’re good enough to keep a secret. That’s the thing about you, Astalis. I can smash you into dust and watch your grains dance at my feet. My little circus monkey.”

I might’ve hated Vaughn, but I hated myself more for not standing up to him. For not opening my eyes and spitting in his face. Clawing his unnaturally blue eyes out. Taunting him back for all the times he’d taunted all of us at Carlisle Prep.

“By the way, your eyelids are moving,” he said drily, chuckling.

He straightened up, his finger making a brief stop at the base of my spine. He snapped his fingers, making a breaking sound, and I nearly jumped out of my skin, letting out a gasp. I squeezed my eyes tighter, still pretending to sleep.

He laughed.

The bastard laughed.

Was he sparing me for the time being? Was he going to check in on me from now on? Retaliate if I opened my mouth? He was so unpredictable. I wasn’t sure what my life would look like in the morning.
