47762658._SY475_I am a latent wolf shifter.
Or so I thought.

Then life as I knew it changed in a flash—or more accurately, an electrocution.

I’ve woken up in a strange place, surrounded by strange people who hate me. They’re in the middle of a war, and I look like I belong on the wrong side of it.

If that’s not enough to qualify as a really bad day, I now have wings and a strange animal to figure out, because it turns out that there’s not a damn latent thing about me.

If I want to live, I have to prove that I’m not the spy I’m accused of being. Then I need to figure out how the fuck to get back home before all hell breaks loose. Too bad my animal has zero interest in working with me unless it has to do with the two hot assholes that lead this rebel group.

I’m on my own, in a place I’ve never even heard of, with threats I don’t know how to defeat. And lucky me, I might as well have a rotisserie chicken living inside of me for all the help my newly discovered gryphon is.

Perfect. Just fucking perfect.

From GoodReads [x]:

“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.

The Hidden was a truly interesting story. I couldn’t help but be captivated by the story. Rarely do I ever hear–or get to read–about shifter’s who are Gryphon’s. I was so glad that I still had my Kindle Unlimited, so I got to read this story. Continue reading

47124624._SY475_I thought that the hardest thing I would have to face this year would be Trial Month.

Gods, I was naïve.

My name is Luna Moon. Don’t ask me what I am, because complicated doesn’t even begin to cut it. I recently found out that
everything I knew to be true has been a lie.

Including who I am.

The goddesses and their chosen Guardians have been keeping a secret, and in the wrong hands, this secret would plunge our worlds into chaos.

We are the only thing that stands in the way of the realms’ greatest evil escaping his eternal prison.

Scratch that, I’M the only thing standing in his way.

Themis’ scales have tipped.

Nobody is safe.

Nothing is as it seems.

No one can be trusted.

There are a few different characters whose view points that we read from. However, the story is honestly about Luna, and Luna with her…mates, as she finds out. Continue reading

Fallen Elemental, by Tamara White | Mini Book Review

Hello friends! Today I’ve got my book review of

Fallen Elemental, by Tamara White.

Fallen Elemental is the first book in the Evelyn Storm series.

Trigger Warnings: Physical Abuse, Mental Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Bullying, Kidnapping, Torture Mention, Murder Mention.

45299296._SY475_I’ve always felt different than everyone around me. And it feels like they know it too, because they treat me like an outcast. When all I really want is to be cared for by someone. To be loved for who I am. Not hated by my parents like I am now, or bullied by girls who know nothing about me, but treated like I too am important and worthy of affection.

It seems like that day has finally arrived when four new guys show up at school and turn my life on its head. I know I shouldn’t let my loneliness be the reason I let them into my life, but I can’t seem to help myself. There is just something about them that draws me in, that makes me long to be near them.

But when my eighteenth birthday arrives, everything I thought I knew about them, and myself, changes. I have to adapt to all sorts of new challenges, like controlling powers I never knew I had. Let’s just hope I don’t destroy the world by accident.

***Warning: this book, while based in high school, is not YA. I recommend readers be over the age of 18 before reading this and and to ensure you read the inside warning page regarding possible triggers.

When I say that there was so much that happened within this book, I completely, 100%, mean it. Like, Fallen Elemental could have ended at least three times but the story kept on going. And then just when the story got good, IT ENDS! So yes, there’s a slight cliffhanger in this book, but it’s totally worth it—the story is just that interesting and captivating. 

I love the 4 points of view that we read from, and I adore that they all grow to have feelings for one another. 

I’m honestly so stoked for the next book. I can’t wait to see what happens. 

I give Fallen Elemental, 4 stars.

Have you read Fallen Elemental, or anything else written by Tamara White?

Thank you so much for stopping by!

See you soon, and Happy Reading!

I originally found this tag over on Instagram, and thought I’d bring the Autumn Book Tag  to my blog. I thought this tag to be cute, and quite fast to finish. AKA:, the best of both worlds for me! Haha.

Let’s start!

Baby Girl, by C.M. Stunich | Book Review

Hello loves! Today I have my book review of

Baby Girl, by C.M. Stunich.

Trigger Warnings: Car Accident resulting in Death, Blood, Fighting, Gun & Gun usage, Grief, Sex scenes.

pink leaf divider

37784538._SY475_He died that night, alone, in the rain, in the dark, the boy that called me baby girl.
I was only seventeen; we were going to be together forever.

On his way to pick me up for prom, he swerved. I’ll never know what made him do it, what killed the boy I’d loved my whole life. With roses clutched in his hand, he bled out in icy wetness all alone.

His best friend is here though, and I’m pretty sure he loves me.
But after the accident, I left for a year and didn’t look back.

Now I’m back in town and my heart is like shattered glass.
Do I pick up the pieces and risk getting cut? And do I let another boy call me baby girl?

WARNING: Don’t open unless you’re prepared to ugly cry, but also ready to read a story of hope and new love, a love that was there all along but patient enough to wait. This is a book about grief, about loss, but also about fresh starts and new beginnings. The ride is sad, a tumultuous twist of feelings that gets ugly at times … but the ending is a happy one.

BABY GIRL is a full-length 300+ page new adult/contemporary romance novel. It’s a stand-alone meaning this volume contains a complete story; there are no sequels and no cliff-hanger. This novel includes cursing, tears, loss, graphic sex scenes, and new hope

Please note that while there are Reverse Harem themes, a reverse harem doesn’t actually take place in this story.

The synopsis for Baby Girl may come off as Young Adult, but it’s actually New Adult. And yes, there are sex scenes. Also danger scenes. And fighting scenes involving Blood, sometimes Death (and death fighting mentions). Continue reading

September 2019 Wrap-Up

IMG_8624

Hello readers!

Today is the day where I post my September 2019 Wrap-Up. Let’s see what I did in the blogging world this past September, hey?

September felt like it flew by. But then again, September and onward tends to move a little more quickly than anticipated. Also, my province won’t be participating in the time-fall-back-thing, and I am pissed.

How was your September?

Enjoy!

46662523I’m not who you think I am.

My enemies aren’t who you think they are.

Welcome to Wraithwood Academy.

My father is dead. And my mother’s enemies smell opportunity. To save us both, I’ll have to navigate the troubled waters of Wraithwood Academy, seeking allies and outsmarting enemies among the heirs to the country’s most powerful mage families.

The vicious, gorgeous Nightfeld brothers think they know me. Cly Redbriar, the weak daughter of a powerful father. A spoiled, scared little girl hiding behind her bodyguard. Nothing but a new plaything for the kings of Wraithwood.

They know nothing.

Because I’ve been forced to live a twisted lie.

See, I’m not really Cly Redbriar…

First Line Fridays #16

first-lines-fridays

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines? If you want to make your own post, feel free to use or edit the banner above, and follow the rules below:

  1. Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  2. Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  3. Finally… reveal the book!

If you’re using Twitter, don’t forget to use #FirstLinesFridays!
