Captive of Wolves, by Eva Chase | Book Review

Hello, and welcome to Adele Is Reading!
Today I have my book review of

Captive of Wolves, by Eva Chase.

Captive of Wolves is the first book in the Bound to the Fae series.

Trigger / Content Warnings: Bullying, Torture, Torture Mention, Cut mention, Blood mention, Blood, Self Harm mention, light sex scenes, Death, Attempted Murder, Kidnapping, Abuse, Physical Abuse. Stockholm Syndrome.

My blood is their salvation… and my ruin.

For years, the monsters who killed my family have held me in a cage. Brutalized and half-starved. Only kept alive so they can steal my blood.

Until one evening when four eerily gorgeous men break me out of my prison.

They give me a soft bed and delicious food. They say they’ll protect me—but their generosity may come at a price.

My rescuers are monsters like my captors: fae who shift into wolves. A curse gripping the faerie realm turns them wild under the full moon. Only my blood can cure their rage.

These fearsome men need me, and not just to lift the curse. A tragedy left them outcasts, and offering me to their rulers could win them back the home and the power they lost.

No matter how kindly they treat me, no matter how their smoldering eyes and strong hands stir unfamiliar desires in both my body and my heart, their castle is just another prison. As long as I’m a prize more than a person, my life will never be my own.

I’ve survived this long without giving up. I won’t roll over now. But how can one damaged human girl hold her own against the savage fae?

*Captive of Wolves is the first in a new paranormal romance saga featuring possessive wolf shifters, fraught fae politics, and a wounded heroine coming into her own. Grab it now and get swept away in the fantasy!*

Crescent Wolves, by G. Bailey, & Regan Rosewood | Book Review

Hello friends! Welcome back to Adele Is Reading.
Today I have my book review of:

Crescent Wolves, by G. Bailey, & Regan Rosewood.
Crescent Wolves is the first book in the Supernatural Shifter Academy series.

Trigger Warnings: Attempted Child Abuse, Attempted Assault, Kidnapping, Torture mention, Murder, Human/Shifter Experimentation.

Secret societies. Magical boarding schools. Supernatural beings…What could go wrong? 

I’m Millie Brix and apparently, I’m a supernatural shifter. Funny eighteenth birthday present, right?

Chosen for Supernatural Shifter Academy, I have to learn which shifter clan I belong to and how to use my powers that are slowly growing out of control. Supernatural Shifter Academy only has five hundred places and if I’m not strong enough to survive, I won’t get to walk away.

The Sirens lure you in, the Wolves bite first and ask questions later, the Dragons only care for themselves, the Vampires plan to own the world and the Witches will do whatever it takes to win.

I’m not going to let the academy or its students beat me, that’s for sure. 

With a prince of the Vampires seducing me, a secretive Siren dead set on making me his, a gorgeous Wolf shifter who wants to claim my heart and an alpha Dragon who sees me as a prize he wants to keep… the academy is far more dangerous than it looks.

In this academy, secrets are the only thing you can trade with and I’m right in the middle of the biggest secret the academy has.

And when the truth comes out…the academy will fall. 

17+ Reverse Harem Romance which means the main character will have more than one love interest. This is book one of a five-book series and will be rapidly released.

Seized By The Pack, by Ava Lunaria | Book Review

Hello! I’ve got another book review today. To be honest, I have enough book reviews to last me for another year or so if I were to upload one everyday. BUT for your sake, and mine, I’m trying to upload maybe….4 (max) a week?

Today’s book review is of Seized By The Pack (Paranormal Mates of Erinbren University, #1) by Ava Lunaria. Here’s the link to the synopsis on Am*zon, and this is a link to SBTP on GoodReads.

Luna Wright’s mother was obsessed with werewolves. That’s why, when abandoned by college jocks in the woods and she finds herself at the mercy of a werewolf pack, she knows the full moon could mean damnation or, if she’s lucky, salvation.
Maybe it’s time to switch her major from American mythology, to veterinary medicine.

A reverse harem werewolf romance with insta-love and a guaranteed HEA.

40128857How far can fate make you fall?

When Adelaide turned twenty, losing her parents and gaining custody of her fifteen year old sister was not part of her plan. If being a shifter in a world where her kind is hunted wasn’t bad enough, she now has to protect her sister too. Adie has no choice but to move into the old house her parents left them, or risk being on the streets in a dangerous world.
Only she didn’t expect to be living next door to a strange, and very attractive, group of men who are far more than human. They offer her protection in exchange for keeping their reason for hiding with the humans a secret, and helping them.
But protection comes at a cost and the cost is something none of them could have expected.
A cost that’s been destined. A cost that fate has weaved for Adelaide. A cost that even princes cannot escape.

Adelaide’s Fate is a book that I’d had my eye on for a while prior to reading. I didn’t know what to expect, as I didn’t read beyond what the cover said. Which, admittedly, isn’t a whole lot. Haha. However, I knew that because Adelaide’s Fate is a G. Bailey novel, it had to be good–and if not, Adelaide’s Fate would be at least, interesting. Continue reading

38606743Four lost dragon guards. Three choices. Two betrayals and one secret…

Dumped on earth with three dragon’s guards, who have no idea who Isola is, isn’t what anyone had planned. With the biggest betrayal still haunting her heart, it’s hard for Isola to remember what she has to do and that she has to return to Dragca. Only making her dragons remember her, isn’t as easy as she hoped. The three guards, who she knows it’s forbidden to love, are doing everything to make sure they win her heart…
So, what could go wrong?
With dreams of her betrayer literally haunting her, and the dangers of earth becoming a problem no one can protect her from, everything seems lost when it’s dangerous to be.

Magic exists. I know—it’s in my blood.

Unfortunately, not all people from magical bloodlines have powers, and at 22, I’m several years past the age they usually appear. So I’ve resigned myself to a boring, magic-less life.

Then something strange happens…

I get stuck in the middle of a bar fight, and instead of just punching the guy back, I blow a hole in the wall.

So… I guess I do have powers. But they’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. This shit is definitely not normal.

And it seems the magical authorities agree, because they give me a choice: either I go to school to learn to control my crazy new magic, or they’ll take it away. Permanently.

Now if I can just survive the bitchy mean girls determined to take me down a peg, the mysterious attacks on students, the three hot-as-hell guys who don’t seem turned off by my prickly exterior, and the professor who makes me long for detention, maybe I’ll get out of here in one piece.

Wouldn’t bet on it though.

Welcome to the Academy of Unpredictable Magic.

Spark is the first book in the Academy of Unpredictable Magic series, a medium-burn reverse harem story intended for ages 18+, featuring a badass chick and the four sexy men who fall in love with her.
