Oh my goodness what a book. This is book five in the Southern Witch series. I have not read the other four books just this one. But boy oh boy am I missing some interesting things. I think you can read this series out of order but to full understand and enjoy the series you need to read it in order.

In this book you go back and forth thru the Never and you are constantly fighting for your twin that you just found. You are both half witch and half fae. You have to fight to save yourself in and out of the Never but at the same time you have personal issues to deal with.

You are fighting with your great aunt in someone else’s body. Your ex husband and your fiancé and your ex doesn’t really want to let you go. Come on can Tammy Jo’s life be any more complicated than it already is.

This is a must read book and Kimberly did a fabulous job being able to pull you into the story. On Goodreads it says that it took me from February 22 to March 07, 2015 but that is because I won this paperback in a contest on Goodreads and I was reading other books at the same time. I loved this book and am grateful that I was able to read it thank you Kimberly.

Overview:

GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.

The swamps hold many mysteries, but few are as sinuously seductive as Le Poivre de Cayenne. The woman the locals call Pepper is every bit as enigmatic as the three little girls she’s desperately trying to protect. From what, Wyatt is soon to discover. Right now Pepper needs a man like Wyatt. Passionately. But her secrets are about to take them both deeper into the bayou than either imagined—where desire is the deadliest poison of all.

I couldn’t wait on this book. Feehan did not disappoint on this one. I was completely drawn into the book. Played with my emotions in major ways, I was angry, happy, laughing, all of it. I enjoyed this book very much. There wasn’t much interaction with the rest of the team but they weren’t needed although many were mentioned. This book was exciting, high action and very passionate, pure adrenaline rush. What a great way to bring Wyatt and Pepper to life.

Reviewed by Tammy

This book starts out hard and fast and has u wanting to toss the book, e reader, PC, or kindle across the room from the first chapter. You will have a hard time getting threw it without wanting to commit murder yourself. I had to walk away a few times to calm down so I couldn’t finish it in a day. but this is one of Christine’s best books so far in the series. LOVE IT…..

Prisoner (Echo’s Wolf, # 1) (Werewolf Marines #2)

Prisoner (Echo's Wolf, # 1) (Werewolf Marines # 2) by Lia Silver

# OF STARS 5 /5                     Genre:     Paranormal                               Pages: 231

Overview:

Echo was created to be a weapon.

Echo was born when a secret laboratory tried to genetically engineer the perfect assassin. Two clones survived: Echo, the success, and Charlie, the failure. Stronger and faster than any normal human, Echo knows no life but killing, and has never loved or been loved by anyone but her frail sister. But that’s about to change…

DJ Torres made himself into a Marine.

DJ was born a werewolf. But he grew up to be a rebel, and left his pack to join the Marines. When his helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan and his best friend lay dying in his arms, DJ bit him to save his life. Revealed as a shifter, DJ is imprisoned in the lab and subjected to mind games and experiments. But the lab rat is about to bite back…

Can two misfit people fit together?

Echo was engineered to surpass the limits of the human body, but she doesn’t know how to relate to other human beings. No one thought DJ could make it as a Marine, but he doesn’t know when to quit. When they’re forced to partner up, will they betray each other as their only chance to escape? Or will they risk everything on a love that crosses the battle lines?

Prisoner is free at all e-book vendors. It has a happily-for-now ending. Its sequel, Partner, has a happy ending and concludes the “trapped in an evil lab” arc.

Reviewed by Lily

Wow, Great book. Echo and DJ are brought together in circumstances that don’t seem possible. Echo a genetically engineered assassin and DJ a born-werewolf Marine. Both prisoners for all intent and purposes as there are basically blackmailed to work or the ones they love and care for are killed. I enjoyed the passion that builds between the two as well as the playfulness of the two. Lia Silver you sure did keep me entertained with this book. It’s a great way to start a series. I can’t wait to read the others.

In this book Astrid find herself in Tuscany this time far away from her ex Killian, hopefully?!. She starts dating again but runs into someone she doesn’t want to be near, or doesn’t she. Kendrick makes her wolf interested. Can he be trusted? Was he sent by Killian? He is the brother of her ex?  Saving her life she starts to trust and after a long time of no shifting runs free with him. How long will it last.  This book was great. Wish there was a little more back story but in all was pretty good short story., Also the overview of the book says standalone with no cliffhanger, to me it is a bit of a cliffhanger but maybe its just me wanting more. Especially since they are moving so close to the pack again.

Emily’s body quickly loses control to fantasies that don’t seem possible… that is, until a knock at her door makes it all – and more – possible.

It’s the chance to have a night she’ll never forget, if only she’s willing to fully submit. With her wrists tied to a bed, she’s off to a great start. But what Emily doesn’t know is the war she’s started… and the alpha who’s going to taste her first isn’t the one she thought would be.

Reviewed by Tammy

WOW what a great new series.

Emily needs to realize that just because she is plus size and no that skinny thing most people believe is the ideal woman. That she is very beautiful and she is perfect just the way she is.

She has 2 alphas who want her and it seems she wants both of them. But the real question is can the 2 alphas get past their dislike for each other and share her.

There is a lot going on with the pack but will Emily help it or tear them apart we will have to wait and see what Ana plans for us in book 2.

ARC Reviewed by Tammy:

This book is the sequel to Werewolves in the Kitchen.

I haven’t read the first book but after read this one it sounds to be interesting. I love the play between the three main characters.

In this story they are try to celebrate Valentines but something is always getting in the way of their mating. I mean really could they be any more unlucky. Cant someone give the girl a break so she can finally mate with her men for a few hours.

There is some turmoil that needs to be dealt with and I am happy that Ellis stood up and didn’t let the Alpha try to take advantage of the situation. Good for her.

Over all I want to say that is book had a little bit of everything and had me on the edge because I never knew where Shauna was going to take us next.

Reviewed By Tammy:

Oh my gosh! I am in tears. What a way for Abby to end this book with us crying is so not nice. What a way to end a series it was great and very moving.

So many things are answered that where hinted at in the other books. The guys were able to move past their personal issues and make Aisha the happiest woman on the planet. Also make us wish we were her in some of the scenes yum yum.

I loved how she made us wait till the end of the book to her the prophecy that was hinted about in book 1.

There where ups and down. There was conflict. There were misunderstandings and most importantly there was mating.

You will not be disappointed with this book but you will be sad that it is the ending of the series maybe if we asked nicely she will do a spin off of it so we can meet the kids at some point.

This short book is the perfect for a quick read during your lunch break or tea time. HEA ending. No cliffhanger!

ARC Review:

This is book two in the Mail-Order mates’ series. I am doing things a little backwards I LOVE WOLF shifters so I decided to read book two before book 1.

I feel that you can read this series out of sequence but it does help to read them in order but no fully necessary.

The way she describe Kellan makes him sound so dreamy and yummmmmmy. Molly and Kellan sound like the perfect match and my only complaint is that the book ended I wanted more….. Hopefully in book 3 we gets little peaks at the people from books 1 and 2.

I loved how this lady Olivia is able to help shifters find their true mates. I can’t wait to see what she has planned in book 3 The Bear’s Bride.
