Title: Jackal’s Pride
Series: Seven Deadly Series: Book Two
Author: Michelle Gross
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: December 31, 2018

 

 

Despite a near catastrophe, there’s time for a fateful encounter.
 
Maureen Reaper, eldest daughter of the revered Grim Reaper, avoided an apocalyptic vortex which threatened humanity, but she still has time for bets. She can’t help it thanks to her curse—the sin of pride. Her latest one brings her face-to-face with an entity no one has seen or heard from for thousands of years.
 
Jackal, an entity created by the Devil himself, has never known the comprehension of emotions until the day a witch cursed him to feel for everything he has killed. Unable to bear the new burden of a heavy heart, he sleeps with no intention of ever waking until someone finds him.
 
There’s nothing beautiful in their meeting. Enemies by birth, only more so when Maureen straps a collar around his neck all for a bet. She awakens a beast whose every first—every new glare, new craving, and touch has landed upon her.
 
Then she learns that the one she sought out in a game controlled by pride could be the very one that helps turn the tide back in the Reapers’ favor.
 
But that’s the thing…
Pride is a bitch, and Maureen is her.

 


Beckie Bookworm – “This one gets a sure hell yeah from my camp”


Goodreads Review – “I fell into the story and didn’t want to come up. I hope, I pray, that Gross gives us book three soon because I need more NOW.”


BookedMercy – “I was genuinely blow away by this book. It’s hard to find a good paranormal book so I was pleasantly surprised when reading this gem.”

Michelle is from a small town in Eastern Kentucky where opossums try to blend in with the cats on the porch and bears are likely to chase your pets—this is very true, it happened with her sister’s dog. Despite the extra needed protection for your pets, she loves the mountains she calls home. She has a man and twin girls who are the light of her life and the reason she’s slightly crazy.
As a kid, she was that cousin, that friend, that sister and daughter, the talker who could spin a tale and make-believe into any little thing so it was no surprise when she found love in reading, and figured all these characters inside her head needed an outlet. They wanted to be heard, so she wrote.
The voices keep growing faster than she gets the time to write. 
The stories are never going to end. That’s perfectly okay, though. We never want to stop an adventure.

Title: Crazy For You
Series: Miraculous Love #2
Author: Meghana Sarathy
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 26, 2018

 
Sara:

 

 
They say one’s life is settled when they have a good job, take marital vows and start a family. 
In that sense, my life was settled except for the unease in my heart that was begging for some form of closure with Nate. 
I was a happily married woman – My kids adored me, my husband was madly in love with me. My family was perfect. Just the way I loved it. 
But then Nate came back and all the old feelings were stirred back to life. I demand answers, but he begs for forgiveness. 
I want to turn my back on him, leaving him in the dark but he wishes to bask in the light of the truth – The truth that was kept from him all this while. 
We had been trapped in the web of lies and deceit but now the veil of misunderstanding has finally been removed, making us face the raw, naked, agonizing truth.
 
They say Love is blind. We can’t ever think rationally in love and our heart always wins, but I believe Love is a stubborn, selfish feeling that is not bound by any societal tags or labels, making us question our own morality.
So, this time, I neither listen to my head or heart. I leave the decision to my husband whose love for me has always been pure, ‘right’ and selfless. 
Love destroys lives but also births miracles. I want to see how this miraculous love plays out in my life.
 
Crazy For You is the sequel to Enticed By You and is the final book in the Miraculous Love duet.
I see a miniature me staring right back at me. Eyes the same shade as mine –Grey, almost like a faded white crystal. High cheekbones, broad and sharp jawline with a straight nose. My hair is dark blonde, but his is a lighter shade of brown. The resemblance though is uncanny. He can actually grow to be my doppelganger.
My mouth hangs open as I take in his face, totally blown over with just how similar we are in looks. “Who are you?” he barks out with brunched brows. “Why you look so similar to me?”
“Beats me, Kiddo,” I answer, lost, slowly shaking my head. . “I can ask you the same.”
“Brian,” Baylee cries and runs past me to hug him. This again pleases me for reasons not known even to me. The kid who looks awfully similar to me is sweet Baylee’s brother – rather twin brother from what I gather. When they stand together, their resemblance is striking. I turn around and catch sight of the other kid, slightly elder, with his ass planted on the grass, already wailing. The other kids rush to sit beside him and I shift my focus back on Brian.
“Who are you?” he asks, looking up at me with a hardly masked scowl.
“He is my new friend. Mr. Nate,” Baylee answers, smiling my way. Brian’s scowl hardens as he narrows his eyes at me. He’s clearly not ok with his sister socializing and befriending strangers. The protectiveness and anger that shines in his eyes makes me admire this kid.
“How do you know him, Baylee? We are not supposed to be talking to strangers- young or old,” he grits out.
“Chill out.” I don’t think my smile will have an effect on him, but I try anyway. “I’m trustworthy. I’m a friend of your new teacher and just helping out here.”
“So says all the kidnappers,” he scoffs. “I’m no fool. You stay away from my sister.”
I have an urge to actually roll my eyes. A kidnapper? Really? I’m not forgetting this day or these kids. Never been mistaken for a kidnapper before.
“That’s so mean,” Baylee scolds him. “You say sorry. He’s reaaalllly nice, Brian.”
He gives me a once over and looks straight in my eyes. “Wolf in sheep’s clothing. Can’t trust.”
Wow. That’s how his sister picks rather complex and sophisticated words for her age. Her brother is a smart and cocky kid. Even his nature reminds me of myself. How peculiar is that? Not only does he look like me, he even thinks and behaves like me.

Title: His Man 
Series: Wounded Souls Novella
Author: Leah Sharelle
Genre: M/M Ex-Military Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2018

 

 

 

 

FORD
Ford had a pretty good life.
He was part of a former elite commando team, a talented computer genius, and a member of the Wounded Souls MC. He had a real family with his brothers, their women, and kids. Life was good. Well, it would be except for one big sexy issue—a tall helicopter pilot with a mouth and body made for sin. Lucky didn’t know it yet, but Ford was coming for him.
LUCKY
After the horrific shooting at the FOB while on deployment, Lucky took the medical discharge the army offered and ran back to the only place he was accepted just as himself. The Wounded Souls MC. After years of being a part-time member, he was now out of the army and healed, ready to do his bit. The only obstacle in his way was in the form of the club’s computer expert and go-to babysitter. His only hope of staying away from Ford and out of his bed was Lucky’s fiancée. But one look at his former lover had Lucky thinking maybe it was time to dig deep for some courage and finally reveal his true feelings, not only to his blood family but to the man who’d captured his heart and refused to give it back.
Did he want it back? Could he finally stand up to his powerful family and admit he wanted to be Ford’s man?

 


I love the idea of being in love. Since my early teens when I first discovered Silhouette Desire novels my life has been all about reading. I would find myself re-writing scenes if I wasn’t happy with them and hiding them under my bed. That led me to writing love stories of my own. They all ended up under the bed and are still there, and there they will stay. I don’t do angst, in fact it drives me crazy.
 


I am a mum of three beautiful girls, Australian, and have what most say is a weird sense of humor.

I spend my free time doing movie, Sons of Anarchy, and Friends marathons. And reading.

I love Pina Colada’s and getting caught in the rain….. there’s that weird humor.

Book Four: Over and Again

It’s been a hell of a year in New York City. Detective Cohen Bailey is determined to put Jake Bartlett, the last remaining threat, behind bars for good. To do that, he’s going to need all the help he can get. Their team is still reeling from almost losing two of their own and Cohen knows that if there was ever a chance to prove himself, this is it.

Brock Hart is a pinch-hitter for the Department of Justice, a mobile asset that moves with the big cases and steps in to clean up messes when they occur. Prosecuting isn’t all done in the courtroom, and Brock’s got a personal connection of his own to this particular case. Detective Cohen Bailey is attractive, competent and more importantly, half Brock’s age. Brock’s better off sticking to his long-time no-strings arrangement than risking it all on Cohen.

The more they dig into the web surrounding Bartlett, the more certain they become that there’s something bigger going on. Neither of them have the time to fall into bed together, let alone fall in love, but if there’s anything Brock’s learned it’s that sometimes, the best choices are the ones you don’t mean to make.

Over and Again is the final installment and the culmination of this phenomenal series. The books leading up to this one have resulted in an entire NYPD precinct put through an emotional and physical wringer after almost losing two of their own. There’s a constant need to stay vigilant and on high alert as one more psycho, Jake Bartlett, is still at large and most likely after Police Chief James Carter and US Attorney Derek Moore. These two men have been through a living hell, and their psychological recovery is just as painful as the physical harm done.

Knowing that time is of essence, Detective Daniel Callahan is doing his best to keep their precinct running with everything they’ve got in order to bring in Bartlett. Realizing it’s just not enough, they call in the big guns in the form of Brock Hart, Dept. of Justice. He’s hot as hell, smart, and determined to help nail the last threat to James and Derek.

The guys work relentlessly and leave no stone unturned while trying to find Bartlett. A major asset is Detective Cohen Bailey, who‘s also caught the eye of Brock Hart. I love how Cohen Bailey has really come into his own in this book. He has a lot more confidence and determination in his own abilities to put an end to this whole miserable case. And hot damn, Brock is one lucky guy because Cohen is one hell of an alpha lover—he sure is all grown up now!

There are so many twists and turns and action-packed scenes that had me biting the hell outta my fingernails. The best part of it all is how everyone’s involved in this finale: Derek’s parents, James’s son and girlfriend, Detective Daniel Callahan, who is a rockstar, his boyfriend, Peter, along with Kay and the rest of the entire precinct.

What I truly loved and will greatly miss is the incredible cast of characters Brooke Edwards has created. Each one brings so much to the storyline and they have become a familiar and integral piece no matter how big or small their part.

Over and Again ends just the way it should. Everyone’s gonna be okay because this zany, sarcastic, badass bunch of lovable law folk will make sure of it. No one goes it alone. Loved, loved, loved this series. Ridiculously well written by the amazing Brooke Edwards. Five-bittersweet-stars for me as this wonderful series comes to an end.

Book One: Mens Rea

James Carter is a career cop who married young, became a widower young, and then his life revolved around his son and his job. Young is a recurring theme, he thinks, when he meets the considerably younger-than-him AUSA Derek Moore. For the first time in years, James finds himself subject to the whims of his heart.

The path to love between a hotshot lawyer and a veteran cop was never going to be smooth, not in the real world. Criminals, misunderstandings and a complete lack of communication stand in their way too. Both too stubborn to budge, and utterly convinced that their feelings aren’t reciprocated, James and Derek themselves are the biggest obstacles to their own happiness.

A murder case might be just enough to force them to get their act together.

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C This short story sets up the direction and fills in the background of what you’ll soon find out is a fantastic series. The author provides a lot of info within a limited amount of pages. It’s extremely well-written, and I was very excited to start the next one.

Book Two: Law and Disorder

James Carter and Derek Moore fought their way through attraction and misunderstandings to get to where they are today. Sure, they’re still figuring out how to make things work between their careers and families, but their whole world is rose-tinted with the glow of new love.

Reality hits with the force of a speeding truck when a criminal starts waging a campaign of terror against the justice system. Suddenly law enforcement officers and lawyers all across the city are living in fear as their careers put them right in the cross-hairs of a deranged killer and James and Derek’s honeymoon period falls to ruins.

With James’s protectiveness driving a wedge between them and Derek pulling away as the target on his back grows even bigger, their future is thrown into jeopardy. While Derek struggles with demons from his past, it’s up to James to catch the killer and put them back on the path to their happily ever after.

 

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

This installment is a continuation of James and Derek’s story. I think it’s worth saying that this story is as much a crime/murder/mystery as it is a love story.

James Carter is a forty-four-year-old NYPD police chief, whose precinct is filled with colorful, funny, complex, and intelligent co-workers. But now that he’s romantically involved with twenty-nine-year-old US Attorney, Derek Moore, his life has been turned upside down even more so when Derek becomes the main focus of a madman’s obsession. James’s sole concern is to keep his guy safe, but that proves to be a daunting task as the two stumble and flounder while attempting to navigate the uncertainty of a new relationship when there’s a killer out there!

I love the author’s writing style. It’s similar to watching a movie or a TV crime show. Each scene feels like the camera is fading to black, and I can’t help but think of the two musical beats used in Law and Order.

This series is something else! The cast of characters, no matter how big or small a part they play, add a perfect balance, resulting in a storyline filled to the brim with creative dialogue and painstaking attention to detail. The sex scenes are non-existent but are left to the readers’ imagination through teases of playful or sensual caresses and images of clothing strewn and tangled sheets. I highly recommend this series and can’t wait to start the next one. A Five-Star read for me.

Book Three: Cause and Effect

In the aftermath of a psychopath’s obsession-fuelled murder spree through New York, Detective Daniel Callahan feels like he’s been hit by a wrecking ball. It turns out that watching your best friend and your boss fall in love only to nearly lose it all takes a toll on a guy’s emotional stability. 

Peter Saracen has an out-of-control crush on the belligerent detective who seems to want nothing more than to toss him into a cell and throw away the key. When the body of an unidentified gang member is pulled from the East River and an old nemesis breaks out of prison, Peter finds himself on a whole new collision course with Daniel.

The line between personal and professional begins to blur. The dangers of the present take aim at the fragile possibility of Daniel and Peter’s happily-ever-after, while ghosts of the past threaten the deepening bond between Daniel’s boss James Carter and Assistant US Attorney, Derek Moore. With everything against them, there might not be any coming back from this.

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

Loved this story of Peter Saracen and Daniel Callahan, the NYPD detective who Peter has been obsessed with for some time now. Peter puts himself in harm’s way by nosying around crime scenes and winds up needing protection. As the situation escalates between a killer at large and James’s man, Derek, the whole precinct is on edge, rightfully so.

Peter seems to be a balm to Daniel’s rough edges and worms his way into his heart. Again, this installment (or episode!) is action-packed and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. No single person is truly front and center as Brooke Edwards does another outstanding job bringing in the whole cast. Positively crazy about this series and can’t wait for the next. Again … another Five-Star read!
