SHIVER-PRINT-WEB.jpg

Title: Shiver

Cover Designer: Hang Le

Publication Date: October 15th

Wide-eyed and innocent, you stumbled into my world, never knowing the danger that lurked within. The Wolfe’s Den is no place for a little lamb, but you came anyway, and from the moment you stepped inside, you were mine.
In my life there are no happy accidents. Every move is carefully orchestrated. Every situation premeditated. That’s what makes the hunt so intoxicating.
What you need, I become.
What you crave, I will give.
Except the one thing you desire above all else—love.
Everything I told you is true—I’m not a good man, but you choose what you want to hear.
You shouldn’t have come that night. Maybe then you’d be safe. But it’s too late now.
I want you because you remind me of him. I need you to give me back what I lost.

Blurb

Two lovers from rival packs. Have they come together only to be forced apart?

Alec Knight, a beta in the Regent’s Park pack, guards his heart carefully. Ghosts from his past keep him alone and angry, any hope of a relationship impossible while guilt from the pack wars still haunts him. With the anniversary drawing near, Alec needs a distraction.

As a lowly member of the Primrose Hill pack, Mark Appleton isn’t used to having his alpha’s attention. Lately he’s had more than his fair share, and not for the right reasons. Despite growing suspicions that all is not well, Mark tries hard to do better, but constant criticism leaves him desperate for a stress outlet.

Sex is a good way for shifters to let off steam, and while their packs attack each other with accusations and lies, Alec and Mark work out their frustrations in bed. Pillow talk and shared secrets lead to a closeness neither was expecting, but when pack relations reach an all-time low, any future for them seems out of the question.

If they want to be together, they’ll have to go against their alphas’ wishes—except Alec won’t and Mark can’t.



Excerpt

Mark’s scent might have been lost to him before, but standing this close to him, Alec had no trouble picking it out—a light citrusy undertone to the spicy edge he’d detected earlier with just a hint of the tequila working its way out of his system. Even with the alcohol, he smelled good.

Alec took a deep breath in, not bothering to be subtle about it. Might as well put the offer out there. He wasn’t in the mood for games tonight. Maybe he hadn’t consciously gone in there with the intent of hooking up with Mark, but he liked what he saw. Dark hair and blue-green eyes had always done it for him.

It was a bad idea; the worst one Alec had had in a while probably. But like it had done on the street outside, Mark’s scent stirred Alec’s interest, making his wolf perk up and take notice. He didn’t always get that with people he fucked. When it happened, it boded well for the night ahead.

And it was just sex, right? After Cam’s accusations, Alec couldn’t make relations between their packs any worse. Cam might disagree, but Alec needed to get all this tension out of his system if he was to be any use to his alpha over the next few days. And both he and his wolf had decided on Mark.

REVIEW : Hell and Back by Dirk Greyson

36267197 

Seventeen years ago, Forge Reynolds fell in love… and had his heart broken. When Staff Sergeant Gage Livingston was brought into Forge’s Army field hospital, temporarily paralyzed, Forge sat with him, read his letters, answered his mail, and formed a connection he thought would last. But Gage was sent home, Forge transferred to a new post, and his letters to Gage went unanswered.

Now in the middle of a bitter divorce, Forge is sick and tired of his husband’s manipulation. He's almost ready to make any sacrifice to get closure—then he finds Granger murdered execution-style in their home. Forge had no idea about Granger’s illicit activities, but the killers don’t believe that. They think Forge has something they want, and they’re coming after him.

When Forge’s lawyer arranges for professional protection, the last face Forge expects to see is Gage’s. Can he even contemplate a second chance for them after almost two decades, or will hope only lead to more heartache? Before they can explore the possibilities, they must figure out what information Granger had—that others are willing to kill for—or that possible heartache could become a certainty.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

*3,5 starts.*

I was torn between 3 or 4 for some reasons. Okay, one.
While we'll obviously hate Granger for his cheating, he's got murdered, and at some point (at the end of the book, I found out that he's not that bad as we assumed in the beginning), was it 'ethical' for Forge to 'messing around' with his long lost love, Gage on the first day?
Not a fan.

I hate cheater, sure, Granger was a cheater. Once, and there's some explanation later in the book. But can't Forge 'pretend' at least he's mourned after his dead husband?
There's a 'divorced' explanation there, of course. But still.

Scratch the love life, the mystery was quite good and interesting for me to follow. It was interesting. And fun to follow, I was glued on my chair yesterday, so yeah, it was enjoyable mystery.

If you're into some mystery, this book could probably fulfill your need. Don't expect to high for the romance, you'll be good.

REVIEW : Never Let You Go (Forever Yours, #2) by Andrew Grey

35952848 

Friends since they met in school, Ashton and Brighton soon become much more. Ash and his aunt are Brighton’s haven away from his mess of a family, and when Ash enlists in the Army, Brighton learns to endure his long absences and eagerly awaits his return from missions.

Until one day Ash doesn’t come back, and Brighton thinks his greatest fear has come true.

Months pass and Brighton grieves for Ash, not knowing that a terrible misunderstanding sent Ash running, unable to cope when he thought Brighton had betrayed him. Even after an emotional reunion, their relationship isn’t the same—Brighton is now responsible for his young niece, and he’s having a hard time rediscovering the trust he once had in Ash. Ash must still tend to his mental health, but before he can, he’ll have to deal with a past secret that puts all their lives at risk. With so many forces determined to tear them apart, can Brighton and Ash hold on to each other and never let go?

Never Let You Go by Andrew Grey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I liked the first book, but something about Ash and Brighton didn't sit well with me. Especially the way Ash judging Brighton without talking to him first. And Brighton is no better than Ash, imo, Brighton is whiny and less understanding than he should be as a soul mate.
When you've waited for so long for your loved one to come home, after he had been captivated in a war zone, you should be more patient. Not Brighton though. I don't know, to me, he should be the one who apologized to Ash, not the other way around.
Ash is easy, or maybe too desperate to have Brighton back, so whatever Raymond told him, he did it.
Thing with the terrorist? Solved easily. Yeah.
MOre thought to follow.

Breakfast at Midnight by Kim Dias

36236019

Hope can be found in unexpected places.

Lonely, still struggling with his divorce, and suffering from writer’s block, successful thriller author Fred spends much more time in an all-night Denny’s than is healthy for any man. It’s the last place he thought he’d meet someone like Callum, who has literally run away from the internationally famous boy band Leos.

Despite their age difference, the two become friends, and their long nights of soul-searching might help them find the courage to face their problems: Fred’s deteriorating relationship with his daughter and Callum’s career issues. It’s easy for their lives to tangle together, and each might provide the other the means to move beyond the past—even if it’s not a journey they can take together.

Strange.
Too many awkward conversation and there's cheating.
Not what I expected. Guess I'm disappointed.
The blurb is good and promising, but again, blurb can be tricky sometimes.
I understand that you'll find or feel the bond when you meet someone who's running away from the past the same as you. The problem is, you're not done with that, while you want desperately to start a new beginning.
This is what happened with Fred and Callum. They're no ready.
Shows that Fred cannot move on from his ex husband, and kissed him with many things appeared in his head, while he's already 'in a relationship' with Callum. And I hate that when your current lover sees that.
The story ended abruptly, okay, with a promise. But still.
Not a fan. Sorry.

REVIEW : The Bunny and the Billionaire by Louisa Masters

36074821 



Spending their fortunes and losing their hearts.

Hardworking Australian nurse Ben Adams inherits a substantial sum and decides to tour Europe. In Monaco, the home of glamour and the idle rich, he meets French billionaire playboy Léo Artois. After getting off on the wrong foot—as happens when one accuses a stranger of being part of the Albanian mafia—their attraction blazes. Léo, born to the top tier of society, has never known limits, and Ben, used to budgeting every cent, finds it difficult to adjust to not only Léo's world, but also the changes wealth brings to his own life.

As they make allowances for each other's foibles, Ben gradually appreciates the finer things, and Léo widens his perspective. They both know one thing: this is not a typical holiday romance and they're not ready to say goodbye.

This is like so many mf books out there, a harlequin kind.
Billionaire and and Prince of Saudi. Ring any bells?
I don't even know where to start.LOL.
Okay, so this guy inherited some sum of money, and travel around the world and stuck in Monaco, and met this oh handsome as sin man. Turn out he's billionaire, Mom a princess from Saudi and daddy from France. Man of my dreams (literally). Who don't love billionaire, right?

Remember Pretty Woman? Cinderella, or some books with billionaire and written as good?
I don't think I found in this book. Ben was busy with his own thoughts on how rich Leo is, and Leo was busy flaunting his money and trying to put Ben in his circle. That's good, I think. But my head was kinda dizzy reading everything 'MONEY'.

I was tired of billionaire in mf book and moved on to mm and I found this (wishing this is different from mf billionaire, but apparently, NOT).
This book is not for me.

REVIEW : The Supers (The Supers #1) by Sean Michael

36174854 
Hunting ghosts and finding more than they bargained for.

Blaine Franks is a member of the paranormal research group the Supernatural Explorers. When the group loses their techie to a cross-country move, newly graduated Flynn Huntington gets the job. Flynn fits in with the guys right off the bat, but when it comes to him and Blaine, it’s more than just getting along.

Things heat up between Blaine and Flynn as they explore their first haunted building, an abandoned hospital, together. Their relationship isn’t all that progresses, though, and soon it seems that an odd bite on Blaine’s neck has become much more.

Hitchhiking ghosts, a tragic love story forgotten by time, and the mystery of room 204 round out a romance where the things that go bump in the night are real.
The Supers (The Supers, #1) 



The Supers by Sean Michael
My rating: 2 of 5 stars


I still don't know what to write about this. I skimmed a lot. There's too many things spooky in this book, less romance. Labeled under Dreamspun Desires, I need more romance, not more ghosts.
I also didn't feel a strong chemistry between the two main characters. It left me feeling flat, and too many details of ghost hunting that I didn't like.

More thoughts to follow. I need something interesting to write, and I didn't find any. Yet.
