Say my name…

They tell you I bring death and carnage. They believe I’m a curse, one that’s contagious.

But they’re wrong.

I was locked away for protecting the innocent. And while my name does bring violence and bloody destruction, it’s only to those whose very souls are corrupted by the violence and hatred they harbor within.

So say my name if you need my help. I’m Bloody Mary, and I promise I’m more than a legend; I’m a witch with the power to save you.

But when four sinfully sexy men make promises to free me from my prison, for the first time in my life, I need to trust someone else to save me. Because the dark powers that trapped me long ago aren’t about to let me go free, at least not without a fight.

DON’T SAY MY NAME is a paranormal reverse harem with a tough, sarcastic heroine, four unique supernatural men, and steamy scenes that will leave you breathless. So if you’re looking for something with a spooky edge and some humor that will leave your mouth watering, click to grab your copy.

Puppy Love (Her Secret Menagerie, #1) by Katelyn Beckett | Book Review

Hello hello! It’s been a while! I actually schedule a lot all of my posts, so really I haven’t seen you guys since September. Should I do a little “catch-up” post? Separate from this book review of course :).

Today I’ve got my review of Puppy Love, by Katelyn Beckett.

Puppy Love is the first book in the Her Secret Menagerie series.

Trigger Warnings: Sex.
Unfortunately I didn’t write down any triggers from Puppy Love, so I can’t remember any specific triggers that may or may not have happened within PL.


My passion in life? Saving animals. I’m the person they call when a cat has kittens under their shed or a stray dog shows up with no collar and tags. Be it dark or rain or foggy night, I’m there for friends of fur, scale, and feather alike.

I just never expected one of my rescue calls to be a werewolf pup.

Not like I knew it when I showed up, but something was definitely different about him. His snout was too round, his ears too pointed, and I’d thought he was a coydog; one of those dog-coyote mixes that showed up now and then.

That was before he bit me. And even an alpha pup can change an innocent mortal like me into a shapeshifting powerhouse.

Flung into a new world where submission might mean death and pack politics rule the secret supernatural society, I’m lost but not alone. With the pup’s father, Hudson, and his packmates leading me through this strange environment, I feel as though I could take on the world. They have everything I need; confidence, power, money. And I’m everything they could ever want.

But how do we come to terms with the fact that it feels as if we’ve always been together? As if we all belong as a group? I haven’t been on a date in years, now I have four gorgeous, rich werewolves chasing me.

What’s a girl to do?

This book is intended for mature audiences. Adults only. This is a fated mates reverse harem where the girl gets all the guys. Why choose if you don’t have to? Light M/M references included.

45310070._SY475_My husband killed me.

Then he screwed his way through the city, the only problem? I didn’t stay dead. It seems killing me woke something deep inside, something so dark and buried so deep I never knew it was there.

I don’t know what I am, I don’t really care. All I can think about is revenge, even as the monsters in the dark start to surround me. Their horns and black eyes, mouths filled with fangs claiming I am theirs.

My monsters will have to wait, he will regret the day he crossed me.

Are you scared of the dark? You should be.

*18+ Reverse Harem Romance. Warning this book contains scenes and references of abuse/assault that some readers may find triggering. Along with graphic sex scenes and violence. This is a dark book*

Let me start off my review of Rage by telling you that from the first page of when Dawn’s story starts, to about….I want to say 30-50 pages into the novel, it is extreme. 

Do not take the Trigger Warnings I’ve listed lightly. The beginning of Rage is graphic in ways that I wish I never knew, and am so fucking thankful, that I’ve never experienced this kind of abuse, terror, and torture, personally.

The Dark Ones is the first book in The Dark Ones Saga. 

Trigger / Content Warning: Sex, Blood, Kidnapping, Murder Mention, Suicide, Childhood Abuse

26722999

To touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I’ve been marked by both.
A Vampire.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It’s always been theirs.

I for sure thought that The Dark Ones would have a polyamorous relationship within the book. The synopsis was very deceiving before I actually finished The Dark Ones. Reading the synopsis now though, makes so much sense. Very sneaky. I like it. Continue reading
