Review 4.5 stars

Wow!! Scorching book!!

This is the first book for the series The order of the Senary, and it is placed in a world where vampires are the dominating race, and the humans that are caught are considered nothing more than cattle for food.

During the day, the humans are able to go about their business, while at night the vampires come out and play.

But there is a third “kind”…. The hybrids. There are not a lot of them, because they were exterminated, but the few that remain are known as the Knight family.

In this book you get to know Blaze.
The name is not by chance, because the hybrids have half DNA from humans, and half from vampires, they got special traits, and Balaze’s trait is fire.

He is a very tortured guy who was held captive by the vampires for many months, and left him very scarred, not only on the outside but on the inside as well.

We also get to know Valerie, a NYPD detective, a very smart (sometimes smart ass), very grounded and tough woman. Who had the misfortune of having seen the way her sister had died at the hands of vampires, so she grew up and became a cop, then a detective so she could help those who have no one to speak up for themselves.

She is on the trail of a brutal murder, and the suspect she is following matches the description to a T, except there are thing that does not check out, and she is no dumb lady, so she follows her instincts and ends up partnering with her prime suspect.

For me, a book that unravels in my mind like a movie is priceless… and this book made me forget I had my own life and my own reality. There was a moment after a very dramatic scene that I had to put the book down, breath and unclench my shoulders, my arms and my legs!!! I was so tight!!!!!

As you can guess, I really liked the book! It took me a little to get into the story because L. D. Rose had to paint the world, but once the story starts to unravel, everything moves quickly and flawlessly!

It really is very well written, on both points of view. The tension is palpable and the chemistry is on fire.
I will definitely start the second book as of right now!!

I was given this book, by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Release Blast for: CARNAL OBSESSION, by Reily Garret

CARNAL OBSESSION: 
HIS HEART’S PRISONER
Carnal Series
Reily Garrett
Releasing Jan 30, 2017


Life on the street molds emotional athletes.Three years ago, her brother’s death marked the beginning of Kendra’s new life, an existence with no home, no family, and no friends. Time in the underground byways toughened her emotional shell with the loose association of like-minded street rats where survival meant compromise and constant vigilance.


Before he died, Billy had sent her a package in care of his teammate, Conner. For Kendra, re-entrance into polite society comes with a deadly price, as betrayal comes from both sides of the grave.

Conner Crofton owns the BDSM club Ambrosia. After failing to protect his teammate on their last covert mission, penance takes form as a promise to safeguard Billy’s little sister, a girl he’d unknowingly remanded to a world of darkness and uncertainty, deception and psychopathic stalkers.

The past will always haunt us. Each must earn forgiveness and trust as passion, guilt, deception, and betrayal, interweave a destiny formed long ago. A romantic suspense with a twist.

 

  For my review click here:  Review for CARNAL OBSESSION by Reily Garrett
Reily
Garrett
 is
a West Coast girl transplanted to the East Coast. Past employments as an ICU
nurse, private investigator, and military police officer has given her a host
of different environments to add a real world feel to her writing.
 
Though
her kids are her life, writing is her life after. The one enjoyed…after the
kids are in bed or after they’re in school and the house is quiet. This is the
time she kicks back with laptop, surrounded by her shepherds, to give her
imagination free rein.
 In
life, hobbies can come and go according to our physical abilities, but you can
always enjoy a good book. Life isn’t perfect, but your imagination can be.
Relax, whether it’s in front of a fire or in your own personal dungeon. Take
pleasure in a mental pause as you root for your favorite hero/heroine and bask
in their accomplishments, then share your opinions over a coffee with your best
friend (even if he’s four legged). Life is short. Cherish your time.

 

Review for CARNAL OBSESSION by Reily Garrett

Golden stars rating template isolated on white background.

carnal-obsession

As all of the books by Reily, this book has you by the hairs!!!

I’ve come to expect good things from this author, and it does not disappoint. This book grabs you right from the start and simply won’t let go…. Life, house, kids and chores be damned!! lol!

 

“You are mine for all time, against any that would stands against us.””I’ve always been yours.”

This is part of the Carnal Series,the 4th book in fact, but you could easily read it as a stand alone, because the characters are very well developed, and the story follow its own unique line. There are some references and of course cameos of characters from the past novels that only enrich the world Reily is building, but it will not take away anything from this story.

Conner, the older brother of the Crofton family, the owner of Ambrosia, a BDSM club and a bachelor has carried his family and his family’s safety with him , and has some issues with feeling that he has not done a good job, so when a shadow from the past emerges he sees it as an opportunity to try and mend things.

Kendra, the little sister of one of the closest friend of the Croftons finds herself for the last three years completely alone and unprotected. Living in the streets, playing in a band that has merely enough to get by, until she needs something from the Croftons.

“Yes. Yes. i’ve always loved you, you big oaf. Took you long enough to realize it.”

Suddenly they are thrown into something nobody know what it is, because the last thing Billy (Kendras brother and the Croftons friend) did was send Kendra something that has put her life on the line. Now with thugs following her, she finds herself falling in the security of Conner, and he finds himself falling for Kendra. The problem is that he is much older than her, and he keeps reminding himself that she is the LITTLE sister of his friend.

 

“I love you, sweetheart.Nothing will ever change that.” “I’ve always loved you, Conner. You just never saw it, never saw me.” Even when I was half-naked.

They need to overcome the troubles that arise with what Billy sent, and with the feelings of betrayal, and new found love if they plan on keeping each other.

Of course the sibling rivalry and the roasting and ribbing is so funny! You end up wanting to be part of that family!!! Including the dogs (they were in another story, but I’ve loved them since)

The characters are well written and have a lot of depth, and the love, restraint, the integrity of the main characters is very endearing.

As I stated before, I really like the way Garrett writes, I love her books and their HEA….

5 stars

Holy guacamole!!!  This book is a trip!!!  Ups and downs.  Clowns., unicorns,  beer,  Margarita and all forms of alcohol….

 

I’ll  tell you one thing…  the things,  and images that come out of Mimi’s head and manage to become a movie in your head will have you spinning!!!!  And more if you enjoy this book drinking one of the yummy – delicious sounding-must make now drinks that are in the book!!!  Yep you read correctly we get our very own Acan certified recipes for specialty drinks…  I’ll let you know how it went when I try one  or three……

 

Anyhoot ,  this book is amaze balls,  laugh out loud funny moments,  hilarious scenarios,  out if this reality personalities,  and all the good reading that are now a trademark for this series and for Miami.

 

This book is part of The Immortal Matchmakers series. And if you’ve  read this series you know there are some thing that need to come to pass so there won’t be an end of this world apocalypse,  and I  keep wondering what new trip I’m going on while reading Mimi’s book.

 

“Note to godly self: smite evil ex-spouse of Margarita”

 

For this installment,  we have Belch…  the God of wine.  A very abhorrent kid of guy…  beer belly,  drunk,  unclean,  vulgar…  but still the god of a good party, and who thinks he is all that and more.

 

Then we have Margarita, a very uptight gal, she is in her forties with a daughter, which I really loved!!!! I mean usually the heroines in the book are twenty-somethings or thirty at most, so I was a very pleasant surprise!. And she IS all that, a self made woman, a very strong  and uptight role model for her 16 year old daugher.

 

So how can two completely different people even consider being together and I mean in the same room!!!!

 

Well, things get complicated as you will find out, since Belch need to find his better half, and doesn’t seem to quite get what it means.

 

This book is not just laughs and giggles, even though it is  fantasy and rom com and all that i does has its hidden message, You are not perfect, and you do not have to be, you just have to try your hardest to be the best person you can be!!! And sometimes, what you thought was bad, in a more moderate way it is good.

Immortal Match Makers, Book #1

Seven days to go from lethal immortal assassin to Prince Charming? Not likely.

Demigod Andrus Gray may look like every woman’s dream, but when it comes to charm, he sees no point pretending: He has none and makes no apologies for it. Behaving nicely hasn’t made him the deadly assassin he is today. But is that really the reason he’s still single?

The Goddess Cimil—owner of Immortal Matchmakers, Inc.—thinks yes. So when she foresees a mate in Andrus’s near future, she’s determined to make the match happen. That means hiring aspiring actress Sadie Townsend to help the barbarian “act” a little more civilized.

But are seven days really enough? And why does the idea of seeing Sadie everyday excite him more than meeting his mate?

Blog tour and Revew: Wild Poppy, by Vivian Winslow

There, she rediscovers her passion once again, only to be confronted with yet another life choice, one that will forever shape her destiny.

 

My review:

I give it Golden stars rating template isolated on white background.

This book is part of  The Wildflower series, but it can be read as a stand alone.

This is my first time reading something from Vivian Winslow, and not having heard anything from her, I had no expectations. But it definitely changed my mind.

In this case, I think the best thing to do, is to read the other books first, and then read this one, although I understood everything, there are some references that maybe passed me by.

Anyway, The book is about Poppy, a girl that gets thrown a really  big curve ball when her father is imprisoned for fraud, and later her mother remarries but for money. And  suddenly her mother and her aunt are the ones  dictating her life, with money on their minds, not her happiness, but it is clear she wants more, as in happiness.

She is wild, and like such she has to face some of the more damaging decision she takes, but has the character and the backbone to go for what she wants, and to  not lay down and give up.

The book is very well written, Vivians descriptions are flawless and flowing which I kind of like.

The downside of this book, as you know by now with me, is I hate cliffhangers, and this one ends in one… on the plus side, I will be reading another book by Winslow!!

Cover Reveal: Inquisition!! by Jennifer Carole Lewis

Inquisition
Jennifer Carole Lewis
(The Lalassu, #3)
Publication date: March 8th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Romance

Police detective Joe Cabrera used to have a pretty good life. Promising career, plenty of flirtations, and he never once needed to question the nature of his reality. All of that changed when he discovered the truth of the lalassu. Suddenly, he fell deep into a rabbit hole of paranormal powers, shadowy conspiracies and millennia-old secrets. Now, his old no-nonsense approach to his job just doesn’t work any longer. If he wants to stop his old enemy, André Dalhard, from hurting anyone else, Joe will need to find a more flexible option.

A master of disguise, Cali has assumed so many identities over the years that remembering who she was born to be is impossible. Abandoned on the streets as a child, she was rescued by André Dalhard. She’s served him loyally for many years, using her shape-shifting abilities to take on new personas in the blink of an eye, such as Boomerang, the master thief. To save Mr. Dalhard from prison, she becomes Colleen Avila, a meek and mild personal secretary.

Joe initially planned to use Colleen as a confidential informant, but wasn’t prepared for the intensity of his feelings for her. When he meets the arrogant and brash Boomerang and the determined and fearless Cali, he finds himself torn between the three women. For Cali, she knows she must inevitably either break Joe’s heart or turn against the man who saved her from a life of uncertainty and poverty.

As Joe and Cali work together, they discover an even greater threat to the lalassu, one that could send everyone tumbling down into a new rabbit hole. If their fears are realized, neither their friends nor their enemies will be able to escape.
