Justified (ALFHA LAW Series #1) by Aurora Rose Reynolds





After the first sighting, he’s fascinated.

After the first smile, he’s infatuated.

By the first kiss, he’s obsessed.

Nolan sees Chloe through a window of a bakery in downtown Manhattan. At first sight, something about her calls to a piece of him he thought was lost. Without thinking, he begins watching her, and when the moment presents itself, he strikes, claiming Chloe for himself. For a man who is used to getting what he wants Nolan wont let anyone or anything stand in his way.


Review
I already knew that when I received my ARC that I was going to enjoy it. I say that because there are authors that you pre-order and auto-buy just based on their previous works. Aurora Rose Reynolds (ARR) is one of those authors and I had no reason to believe that Justified would be any different. I do recall her offering a small warning that the main character Nolan was Alpha times ten and some may not be okay with it. 


I started the book while on my lunch break at work and BOY BOY BOY! The first phrase in the book says it all. Nolan is incredibly possessive, jealous, determined, and focused.  And his attention is centered on Chloe, a woman he happened to see in a bakery window.  Nolan doesn’t pull any punches and immediately pursues her. I have to admit I was a little put off by, not how he began to pursue her but her reaction to it. She was a little too accepting of a strange man walking her home. Unrealistic to me. I did however enjoy how protective he was towards her. I suppose her character called for Nolan’s type of character, a knight in shining armor. 


I was also a bit thrown off by the length of this read. It was less than 100 pages and I am accustomed to 100+ pages from ARR, but its length didn't inhibit this spicy read. Nolan is a sex god and we all should be so lucky. :) I definitely enjoyed this glimpse into the ALFHA LAW Series, but I didn’t like the villain. For the sake of not spilling the beans of the story I’ll leave it as I would’ve preferred a more believable villain [mastermind] behind it all. Though, this wasn’t a deal breaker for me – Aurora Rose Reynolds remains on my auto-buy list.

REVIEW

 I have been in a constant state of readiness ever since I read Incandescent and was introduced to Sy and Holly. I do love me some Kadence and Nix, but I really enjoyed Sy and Holly. If ever there was a couple that deserved to be together – it’s them. If ever there were two individuals, who based upon their past experiences, could help the other out – it’s them. From book one in the Knights Rebel series you are introduced to Sy’s character quiet, sullen, brooding and you are introduced to Kadence’s ball of thunder aka her best friend Holly. One would think the two would rub each other the wrong way seeing as how they have two opposite personalities, but you can literally feel the heat emanating from these two. Piggybacking from book 1 you know why Holly is damaged and the first portion of this book fills you in on Sy’s background. Based on the introduction of these two characters from Book 1 I strongly suggest that you read that one first.

 In my opinion, the best part of this book was the friendship that developed between Sy and Holly. You were actually able to have a front row seat to the beginning of their "relationship" and the ups and downs of its intensity at the same time that Holly was able to take steps toward handling her recent loss. If you enjoyed Book 1 you'll fall in love with Book 2.

Shadow Watcher (Darkness #6) by K.F. Breene

In the wake of ridding their territory of a menace, Sasha has only one pressing duty left: find more human magic workers. And while it is undoubtedly important on some grand scale, the task is, in itself, surprisingly uneventful. That is, until a strange predator takes an interest in her and Charles on their trek home one evening. In the space of twenty-four hours Sasha's life goes from mundane to being stalked and threatened. A new shifter has moved into town, and if the whispered rumors are to be believed, something even more sinister is lurking behind, watching and waiting for the right moment to spring.
But that isn't the only element that turns Sasha's life upside down. She has one hell of a secret that will change her and Stefan's life forever.


 REVIEW


I love the Darkness series! I stumbled upon the series on Facebook when an author posted a “what are you reading” call. I read the synopsis and was hooked. I have read all of the books and could not wait to get ahold of Shadow Watcher. The one and only thing I must say that I found lacking with this book…its length. I wanted a good couple hundred pages to cheese over, but alas it was not meant to be though I can assume the author has great things in store for me. (Can’t say more without posting a spoiler alert) If you’re familiar with the other books in the Darkness series you already know who Sasha and Stefan are. If not, Stefan is the vampire Boss of the area and Sasha is his Mage mate. There is a butt load more behind this, but that’s why you should read Books 1-6.


In my honest opinion this entire series has never been tedious or boring. I never felt as if I read the same thing in a previous book. Sasha is the main focus of all of the books and her personality is amazing. She is so personable and I can see myself in her sometimes. (Great way to get a reader hooked ) The love scenes remain smoking hot and the fights and clashes in Stefan and Sasha’s relationship are incredibly realistic. Stefan’s reactions ring true to someone who has lived hundreds of years and Sasha’s first response is a great representation of someone who grew up the way she did cue the orphan flashbacks. As mentioned before I do wish this book was longer, but I know #7 is going to be chockfull of action, sex, magic, fighting, death, backstabbing, introduction of new characters, power struggles the list goes on. All you really know starting this book is that something even more life changing than usual is about to take place. Trust me, it does not disappoint.

OT : Hot site called Influenster!


Hey yall! If you don't know about Influenster I suggest you get in the know quickly. This is an amazing community for finding products that work and receiving an array of products to try. I've been a member going on 4+ years and I've never regretted it. If I want to know what people think of certain beauty products, food, snacks, or bath products I mosey on over to the Influenster site and search. Signing up is easy and free.

The last two Voxboxes I received were my favorite. One was the J'adore (most recent) and the other was called Something Blue. The latter came just in time for my little sister's wedding. Both boxes came with amazing KISS lashes and other beauty products. I was so surprised to see an actual full size bag of Hershey kisses, whitening toothpaste and a tube of the Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask. Its always exciting and a major treat to receive the colored box labeled Voxbox. I never know exactly what's inside and that's the best part. I personally love snapping pictures and tweeting the participating vendors on how excited I am to try their product & then to finally tell them how I feel about their product.

Playing with Fire by Cynthia Eden





 Cassie Armstrong has plenty to atone for. The daughter of the most immoral researcher ever to pick up a scalpel, she's determined to use her own brilliance in genetics to repair the damage her family has done to the paranormals. Especially Dante, the first of the phoenixes, the one they call the Immortal. He's been haunting her dreams since she was a little girl, and she's been trying to ease his pain for almost as long. If only he remembered any of it...Dante doesn't know what Cassie's story is. He almost doesn't care. The minute he sees her, all he can think is mine. But there's more to the pretty little doctor than meets the eye. And Dante isn't the only one to notice. He can't trust her, but he can't stay away - and if he wants to learn her secrets, he's going to have to fight like hell to keep them both alive...







I haven't read Cynthia Eden in a good long while, but what I do know is she has not lost her touch for writing the Paranormal. I loved this book so much. I did not, however, read the first two in the series but I was still able to navigate and enjoy my way thru this story. I did wish the reader was able to get more into Dante's head and his feelings [or lack-thereof], but I still enjoyed his character. He was authentic and realistic. As realistic as a Phoenix can be. I say authentic because if we're talking about the oldest living Phoenix and someone who has lived centuries I believe they would have a disregard for life that matched Dante's. Now Cassie - I admired her drive to undo what her father had done, but at some point don't you just give in and say this situation is FUBAR? I loved the chemistry between Dante and Cassie and the idea of Dante continually resurrecting and sometimes retaining his memories of her. Good read!

Vasily's Revenge by Latrivia Nelson

Vasily's RevengeVasily's Revenge by Latrivia S. Nelson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read part 1 a few months ago and couldn't wait until part 2 was released. I am absolutely in love with the Medlov crime series. Anatoly, Gabriel, Dmitry, and Vasily - love'em all.

Latrivia has done it again. Not one of these books has ever been a letdown. Sexy, possessive, and dangerous. This series needs to be optioned for television. I am literally on the edge of my seat every time I open one of these books. This one was no different. We've always seen Vasily in the background as head of security, but now we get to read about his past and how he came to be with Dmitry.

We also get to have mini reunions with Royal, Renee, Briggy and the kids. For the sake of not posting a spoiler alert I'll just say Gabriel and Briggy's story is obviously the next up. I CANNOT WAIT! It promises to be oh so delicious.



Once again we see why Dmitry is the Czar of the Underworld.



Nothing get's by him. He knows ALL and is always two steps ahead. He was handling business before Gabriel, Anatoly and Vasily's collective first pubic hair sprouted.

And Leo....I had not an ounce of pity for him.

Well, you sent for Lily so Vasily came as a result. And I was all...


Vasily went straight Predator on the whole situation.


And when the book finally wrapped up. It was all





And some straight mischief managed type of sh*t


And the Epilogue...she set Gabriel/Briggy up so well.
