    Violent Desire (Blackrose Brotherhood #1) by Ariana Nash

    There are so many elements of this story that I adore. A troubled detective with past trauma. Check. A sexy supernatural who can’t leave said detective alone. Check. Morally grey main characters. Check. Sexual tension and a bad guy with an unhealthy obsession with one of the MCs. Oh yes please and thank you. Synopsis: Eric Sharpe, detective at the NYPD, takes the law into his own hands when his partner’s murderer can’t be brought to justice. And in doing so, he inadvertently puts himself in the middle of a vampire show-down. Zaine is a member of the Blackrose brotherhood, and a vampire. His job is to track and kill…

    The Dragon Experiment (Here Be Dragons #3) by Louisa Masters

    Estimated Release Date: April 21st Cute, quirky, and great fun. That’s my short review of The Dragon Experiment. This is the adorable story of Fabian, the historian and record keeper of dragon kind, and Rhys, a sorcerer and scientist – who most definitely isn’t prepared for the easily distracted fabulousness that is Fabian. It’s silly and funny. Just what I expect from Masters. From previous books we learned that Fabian’s two passions are knowledge and sex. And Rhys just so happens to perform research on the effects of sex on community members’ innate abilities. Obviously it’s a match made in heaven. Without Fabian knowing it, he’s been providing Rhys with…

    Lord Garrington’s Vessel by S. Rodman

    This is one juicy read! It’s the MM equivalent of an old fashioned bodice ripper, and it’s delightfully clichéd and smutty. I loved it! It’s a story set in an alternate reality. It’s 2022, but there’s a secret world of magic embedded in our regular, “mundane”, society. Fen has been raised in boarding schools with no actual contact with his noble family, the Garringtons. He knows nothing of magic and is totally unprepared when his brother Xander snatches him back to the Garrington estate to be auctioned off in an arranged marriage. But Fen is beautiful, and the attraction between him and Xander is intense. When Xander, who is a…

    Evil Omega by S. Rodman

    Release Date: January 14th I loved the premise of this story! An evil, badass Omega as opposed to the usual kind and submissive ones. Awesome! And in many ways, the read did deliver. So, Silas Northstar is a shifter and a necromancer. Outcast, despised, and feared. He also has a propensity for getting captured and that’s how the story begins. With Silas having been captured by the Westlake Pack, and Dean – a pack alpha – literally dragging Silas off of the pack head Alpha. It’s a strong start to the story, and gets even more interesting when Silas’ heat starts when he’s in Dean’s custody. The dynamic between Silas…

    Ethan & Jag Destroy the World by Maz Maddox

    Release Date: October 26th This book was a delight. Quirky, amusing and sweet all-around. Apart from all the references to blood, guts and gore that is, but that’s what you get when one of the MCs is a demon. The book is a two-parter, where the first part – Demon All the Way – was previously published, and the second part – Ethan and Jag Destroy the World – is an expansion and continuation of the first story. To me, both parts were brand new, though, and story-wise they melded together perfectly. If Maddox hadn’t explained the division in the preface I wouldn’t have noticed. As all of Maddox’s earlier…

    Soul Eater (Monstrous #1) by Lily Mayne

    I thought this was a very original story, portraying a post-apocalyptic world in a fascinating new way. I enjoyed reading it and I’d recommend it to others. But there were also a few things, mostly about the story structure and plot, that just didn’t make sense to me. So, I’m a bit conflicted. However, there’s no denying it’s an intriguing world Mayne has created. The story takes place in the US, twenty years after “monsters” spilled into the world through a rift between our world and another plane/dimension. People seek shelter in crowded towns along the the coast, and the rest of the country becomes the Waste – the depopulated…

    Dragon Ever After (Here Be Dragons #1) by Louisa Masters

    This read was a pure and utter delight! Just the funny, quirky and ridiculous story I needed. So, yes, I loved it. Technically, this is a new series – even though I believe there’s only one more book planned. But this is a spin-off from the Hidden Species series, and the only thing that really distinguishes it from that series is that the overall story arc was concluded with Sorcerers Always Satisfy. Therefore, I wouldn’t call Dragon Ever After a stand-alone. You won’t be able to appreciate the supporting characters, or the world building, unless you’ve read Hidden Species first. Synopsis: Percy, the retired leader of the Community of Species…

    Ellis Harper’s Shot in the Dark by K. Sterling

    I loved this story. I devoured it in only two sittings because the plot was just too delicious for words. Synopsis: Ellis is a closeted guy who hooks up – anonymously and in the dark – with a guy during a wedding he’s invited to as his friend’s date. His best friend, Alli, who’s newly pregnant and might have blurted out that Ellis was the father of her child. To say things spiral from there is an understatement. Ellis can’t forget about the hot mystery man, and they decide to continue seeing each other even after the wedding weekend is over. But meeting in the dark and keeping their identities…

    Prince’s Master (Calluvia’s Royalty #4) by Alessandra Hazard

    For quite a while, I really thought Hazard had blown it with this book. The story didn’t sweep me away in the same way the first three books did. But it’s worth hanging in there, it really is. Synopsis: Eridan was rescued as a child from an assassination attempt and has been raised in High Hronthar by an order of telepathic monks. He’s unaware of his true identity as the second prince of the Fifth Grand Clan. He only knows that he’s been claimed as an apprentice by the most powerful man in the Order, Castien Idhron. Castien doesn’t deal in feelings. He’s manipulative, without scruples and he will use…

    Sorcerers Always Satisfy (Hidden Species #4) by Louisa Masters

    Release Date: June 3rd I’m so conflicted right now. And I have sooo many feelings. This is the last book in the series, meaning I have some grieving to get through. But there’s also some what-the-eff-happeneds that I need to come to terms with. Fortunately, there will be a spin-off. Which is a good thing. Apart from Percy’s story, I need Dustin’s. So bad. Synopsis: This is David’s story. The sorcerer who’s always kept to the background in the previous Hidden Species books. And it’s Caolan’s story, the elf who appeared from another dimension at the end of book 3. Caolan is immediately smitten with David, but David has a…
