Blurb for Veil of Secrecy (Shadows, #1)

Rachel Brackett arrives in Sullivan, Montana with simple goals: relocate, settle an estate, and manage her own antique store. Her parents and friends back home called it running away. That’s just fine with her.

 

Rachel’s curiosity leads her into the forest, and she finds creatures who know more about her ominous heritage than she does. The creatures only exist in nightmares – grotesque mutants and shapeshifters. They seek vengeance for hideous crimes in genetic engineering, and Rachel is the prime target for retribution. While Rachel searches for the truth behind the family she never knew, a bounty hunter stalks her every move. Only Leonardo, a figure shrouded in the shadows, offers protection. A were lion with the perfect blend of human and feline features. Terrifying. Impossible. Alluring.

 

When Rachel’s home is ripped apart and a friend attacked, it’s clear there is no safe haven. She is no longer running from her past, but trying to survive to make it to her future.

“My name is Leonardo. Please, do not come any closer.” The voice changed locations without stirring a single branch or crackling a single dried leaf.

Rachel turned, scanning her surroundings. “Why won’t you let me see you?”

“Do you need to see to know you are safe? Is it not enough that you are well after hours of unconsciousness?  Surely, if I intended to harm you, I would have done so already.” Without menace, the voice changed locations again, now almost directly behind her.

Rachel turned, scrutinizing the fading shadows for an outline, a hand or foot, anything to provide a hint of identity. “Yes, but then, how can I thank you for saving my life?”

“There is no thanks needed, but you have just done so without seeing me at all.”

Rachel glanced to the trees, noticing for the first time the tanagers and morning jays no longer sang. Only stark silence, a forest frozen with anticipation. Rubbing her arms, she dropped her gaze. Why does it feel so hard to breathe?

“You should leave now. There is nothing to fear in the sun – the Others hunt only at night.”

“The Others?” She slowly rotated, waiting for an answer or a clue, wondering if she was speaking to a ghost.  She almost smiled at the absurdity of the thought.

“Go south, following the slope. The thickness breaks in a couple miles. When it does, go east along the stream. You’ll come across a marked path which will lead you home.”

Rachel’s stomach swelled into her chest. “How do you know where I live?” Watching her, following her, made him a stalker. A threat.

A charged lull passed. “Do not come into these forests at night.  They are not safe.  And I can not guarantee your safety.”

Big dreams take strength and determination.

Cami Lockhart’s dream is on the verge of becoming a reality. Lockhart Sanctuary, a refuge for abused and confiscated cats, is what Cami has worked for her entire life. But a dream that big requires a daily commitment. Cami yearns for someone to share the dream with, and knows everyone in town thinks Alex is the perfect man for the job. There’s one problem. She wants fireworks with every kiss, not just a friendship with a hint of something more.

Sometimes what you wish for is closer than you think.

Alex Reynolds shares Cami’s passion for the sanctuary, and at her head ranchhand, spends every day helping her dream come true. He longs to tell Cami she’s held his heart since childhood, but losing a lifetime of friendship is a big risk to take. Being by Cami’s side at the sanctuary is better than letting go, but Alex knows someday he’ll want more.

Risk losing everything or fight for the dreams to come true.

The sanctuary is put in jeopardy when ignored threats take a painful turn. Cami and Alex must each chose to stand and fight, or lose everything they dream of.

“Hey Alex! Which way are we going with this?” Mason, the youngest of the crew at only twenty-four, interrupted the tirade of thoughts, the final roll of fencing forcing a heavy lean.

He pointed westward. “Head out that way first, then we’ll wrap back around.”

“What’s the story between you and Ms. Lockhart?”

“There is no story. We’ve been friends nearly our entire lives.”

“You’re lucky man. She’s sure something to look at.”

Alex’s nerves pricked. “And your boss. Remember respect.”

Mason grimaced as he concentrated harder than needed at the fencing. “Sorry. Didn’t mean nothing.”

“Maybe not, but keep that kind of talk for some place else, not here.”

“Sorry,” Mason repeated and then fell silent.

Alex sighed. Time to start dating again. Cami wasn’t the right one, despite how he felt about her. If she was, she’d be his. Playing the field would help him find the one, whoever she was. Then he could settle down, start a family.

And there was nothing wrong with always being there for a friend.

Rescued By The Pack, By: Leah Knight

22819408

Hmm….  It’s hard to find words to even begin describing the disappoint of this book. Boring. Childish. The dialog between characters was weak. There were no words that pulled me in and made me feel this book was creating a new world. I could go and just rip this book apart. As a reader I wanted to stop after chapter two, but I force myself to continue on. After a few more chapters I started skipping chapters. I got to the point where I just gave up, I stopped reading. I did not finish this book. I could not torture myself any longer.

Her Ride, By: Rachael Orman

21843709Rachael Orman knows how to write hot sec scenes. Ok, with that said lets me on to content and characters. At first I did not like her main character Ryan aka Shannon Ryan. I was annoyed and irritated with the character. I was literally rolling my eyes and I wanted to slap the character and place her in check. Maybe because the character was written well, a little to well because this character actually reminded me a of a person I use to know. 10432397_580497228732360_87149174_n

Once the Ryan set out of her trip to D.C. I started enjoying her more. I started to see her in a new way. I believe that was kind of the point given in the book. Ryan had to leave her home to be who she is because the biker club life made her act differently, she had to put on a whole new different front living in her old house with her biker club member brother.

As I read on, I kind had an inner hunch that there was something else going on with Ryan. Maybe it’s my detective skills but to me it was easy to guess. However, I did like the direction of the story.

Great creativity for biker club name. The negative remark would be not to call the club a gang, due to the fact motorcycle clubs do not like being referred to as a gang. Maybe if a character said it that was not part of the club that would be different.

Great nicknames for club members.

 

And…Please remember very hot sex scenes.

I look forward to reading the next book part of this series, which will be Patrick’s story aka Wrench.

Is the book priced right? YES!

Worth the read? YES!

Theirs (The Bears #1), By Hazel Gower

This was my first time reading a shifter romance book in the paranormal department. I loved the idea.
Some scenes in the book would sizzle more if the dialog was written a little better.

The main character Suzie lacked detail. Who is Suzie?  We kind of get a little bit of information of her past but not much. I know what she does for a living; writes romance books and runs a daycare/preschool. That stuff was just thrown into the book. Her family was thrown into the book and left us hanging on what happen and why. To many question and unfinished scenes in the book.

***If the character is going to be thick and curvy, please use a model that is thick and cury. I love a cover that matches the story***

However, I never give up on an author over one book. So I did try book two. Inwardly as I read book two I cringed. Both books felt rushed. Maybe some stories should not be short stories. I think the author has a great idea but needs to elaborate more, give us more.

Do I feel the price in justified for a very short incomplete story? No, I really do think the first book should be free or all three books should be a buddle pack.

I really felt like this was a waste of money.

Not sure if I want to read HERS. Maybe, just for closure.

Ours (The Bears #2), By: Hazel Gower

 

I enjoyed the author’s idea of shifters. I liked the idea of the bear family. But I was hoping with the second book there would be a little more to it. Some scenes in the book would sizzle more if the dialog was written a little better (“Theirs” & “Ours”).
In the other book (Ours) different plot but it felt that the author used the same sex scenes from the other book and just switched characters.
The main character Sandy. Who is Sandy? I know one thing about Sandy and to me she was a bit to annoying. I started rolling my eyes from her stupid actions.
I didn’t feel like I connected with any of the characters.

I guess some short stories work and then some just don’t. And when I mean the story doesn’t work, I just think it needed more detailed and should not have been a short story.

These two books “Theirs” & “Ours” is a very easy short read.

Plus if these main character women are chunky, why isn’t there a thick model on the front of the book?

The author can write about weight but won’t place the right character picture on the cover. Misleading.

I was actually disappointed about these two books, I don’t think the books should be selling at the price it is. Maybe the first one should be free and the other two $0.99 each.

I really felt like this was a waste of money. But it did introduce me to a new type of paranormal romance.

Remember Me, By: Charlie Daye

I must say this Author is amazing. Charlie Day turns a William Shakespeare story into a modern day vampire story with a great twist. Remember me is a unique and very creative story. Due to this being a short story I do not want to give away scenes in the book. The love triangle that is created and chemistry between each character is great. Again the scenes flow easily and smoothly to the next.  I want more, so therefore on to the next book my Charlie Day.

Fury: Children of Kria, By Charlie Daye

fury teaser 2Hmm… How can I describe a unique story as this one? Due to this being a short story I do not want to give away scenes in the book. However, the girl does fall in love with her best friend. But he is not what she thought.  I felt the girl’s pain and confusion towards a broken heart. The story moves and flows smoothly onto each scene. The end of the book makes me want more and I do hope there will be more with the new characters that are introduced towards the end. I know how I would like to see the story continued on, but I am not the writer and this writer is very creative. So I shall wait and see and I know I will not be disappointed.
