Wings of Ice, by G. Bailey | Book Review

Hello friends! Today I have my book review of

Wings of Ice, by G. Bailey.

Wings of Ice is the first book in the Protected by Dragons series.

Trigger Warnings: Fighting, Bullying

38104406Four Dragon Guards. Three Curses. Two Heirs. One Choice…
Forbidden love or the throne of the dragons?

Isola Dragice thought she knew what her future would bring. On her eighteenth birthday, she’d inherit the dragon throne, but one earth-shattering moment destroys everything.
As war looms heavy over Dragca, Isola is catapulted out of her pretend human life and thrust into a world, she knows little of. One life-threatening accident, when she loses control of her dragon, ends up with the whole of Dragca academy hating her.
When the four most powerful dragons in history are ordered to protect her, they find themselves with an awkward problem. Her family cursed them centuries ago, relegating them to slaves of the throne and they hate all royals. Especially an ice dragon princess with no control over her powers that can kill fire dragons. Which the whole school is full of.
What happens when fire falls for Ice?

Bond, by Tasha Black | (Mini) Book Review

Hello friends! Today I have my review of Bond, by Tasha Black.

Bond is the first book in the Stargazer Alien Mail Order Brides series.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Attempted Murder, Stalking, Sex Scenes

31945839When our otherworldly brothers arrive a last they expect a warm welcome…

Posey Quinn has always believed there was more to the world than what she can see. So when she arrives in Stargazer with her head full of conspiracies and high-end hairspray, she isn’t entirely surprised to learn that instead of donating eggs for tuition money, she is being asked to make an alien fall in love with her, and become an ambassador for humankind. What she doesn’t expect is how irresistible Bond is, and how hard it will be not to lose her own heart to the man who plays her body like a violin.

Bond is on Earth to fill one human female with as much pleasure as she can bear, a mission he’s finding very agreeable. But he’s not here to fall in love. Tasked with using his powers of human seduction to glean what he can about Earth and its inhabitants, Bond knows that if the planet’s resources are worthy and its residents aren’t, his days of pleasing Posey will soon be at an end.

I honestly don’t have much to say about Bond.. Continue reading

Hello friends! Welcome to my May 2019 Wrap-Up!

I hope May has treated you well; and if not I’m sorry May was a bad month for you..

My May was very entertaining reading wise. Aside from reading though, May is also one of the busiest months of the year for my family. We have Mother’s Day, my dads birthday, my parents wedding anniversary, and finally, my sister’s birthday on the 31st.

 

Despite the busy month, I actually managed to read a ton of books. *whispers* I also managed to buy more ebooks than I thought I did. WHOOPS!

Enjoy! Continue reading

Kate’s Crew by Jayne Rylon | Book Review

Hello friends! Today I have my super short review of Kate’s Crew, by Jayne Rylon.

Kate’s Crew is the first book in the Powertools series. 

Trigger / Content Warning: Sex, Group Sex.

This book contains M/M/M/M/M/F sex scenes.

flower divider

34808839Nothing’s sexier than men with power tools.

Sultry summer heat has nothing on the five-man crew renovating the house next door. No one could blame Kate for leaning out the window for a better view of the manscape. The nasty fall that follows isn’t part of her fantasy—but the man who saves her from splattering the sidewalk is definitely the star.

When Mike personally attends to her injuries, she realizes her white knight in a hard hat has a tender side, giving her no choice but to surrender to the lust that’s been arcing between them since day one. In the aftermath of the best sex of her life, she whispers her most secret desire: to be ravaged by his crew.

She never expected Mike would dare her to take what she wants—or that the freedom to make her most decadent desires come true could be the foundation for something lasting…

Warning: This book may cause you to spontaneously combust as five hot guys bring a woman’s wildest fantasies to life during one blazing summer affair.

I don’t actually have much to say at all about Kate’s Crew…

Surprisingly, the sex scenes got under way very quickly. And from then on there’s more sex…and more…and..more. You get the picture.

Pertaining to the Sexual scenes in this novel, I didn’t like how Rylon described what was happening. ….How everything was told it felt completely…corny—-but in a bad way.

Honestly, Kate’s Crew is a fast read as this review is. While there is some plot within this book, it’s mostly sex.

I give Kate’s Crew, 2 stars.

Claiming Mia, by Alisa Woods | Book Review

Hello friends! Today I have my review of Claiming Mia by Alisa Woods.

Claiming Mia is the first book in the Dot Com Wolves series.

Trigger / Content Warning: Murder Mention, Attempted Murder, Guns, Gun Violence, Blood, Sex Scenes

LUCAS
I’m a mess. Broken. Lost my mate and almost myself. In no shape to help anyone.

40719388-2Then the sexy girl serving me drinks stumbles into trouble with a bunch of wolves who are bad business—I should know. They’re the competition. And they’re as dirty at dot-com investing as they are predatory on young things like her. So I save her. Because I may be broken, but I’m not an ass.

Only she shows up the next day at my office. As my intern.

And now the Red pack is after her, putting us square in a pack war—one she doesn’t even understand. I’m in no shape to claim a mate—not happening—but if I don’t, the Red’s jackass of an alpha will.

MIA
I’m just trying to earn my degree and dig my way out of poverty.

I was born a shifter—more of my bad luck—but I’ve kept that a secret, so it doesn’t ruin my life. Shifters are monsters. Criminals. And I’m trying to make something of myself. This internship at the hottest internet business development firm in Seattle is my ticket out… only the boss is a wolf. And insanely hot. And he saved my life.

I’d break all the rules for this guy—except he wants nothing to do with me.

The wolves who do are the Big Bad Wolf kind. The kind I’ve always heard about.

I’ve got nowhere to turn… but to the one guy who doesn’t want me at all.

Claiming Mia (Dot Com Wolves 1) is a super-hot complete story with HEA.
(Formerly published as True Alpha).
