Review: In Debt to the King (Shifter Fight League #1)

My ReviewsHot tiny taste!


In Debt to the King is #01 of the 05 part Shifter Fight League Series by Mina Carter.

Currently only #01 is in audio

Meghan Kelly narrates the series.

This is a continuing story.

These are connected by characters and story arc. If read as standalones, there would be spoilers for the earlier ones.

Length: 29 mins

Content Advisory:
There is HOT sex and dirty talk, all kinds of “C“, “P“, & “F” words were used. YUM!



♥ Story ♥

This title is super short but it defiantly wets the apatite for more!

Zara Hunter is in a bind. Her father ran off with the money she owes Reese and it’s A LOT. She fears for her and her bother’s life and is prepared to beg if that’s what keeps them both alive. She isn’t prepared for the payment he requests!

Logan Reese controls all the shifter fight clubs in the city and not someone you want to make an enemy of. He is prepared to crack some skulls until he comes face to face with Zara. She makes his Lion purr! Logan doesn’t just want her, he NEEDS her! He makes her an offer she can’t refuse and HOT times ensue! My only complaint is that the rest is not in audio yet.

♥ Story ♥

Ava ❤ Chase

The Hot Wolf starts with a bang, quite literally!

The action doesn’t stop there, it carries on throughout the whole story. It all comes around full circle leaving you with a happy tear at the end.


​“I only remember his eyes,” Ava had insisted then. “His eyes were hazel, but the most amazing green and goldish brown mixture I have ever seen.”


Ava

Ava Sparks is an orphan taken in by Drake and Sandra Sparks at age 10, to which she was promptly put into training to be a werewolf assassin. She is on a job at the beginning of the story that doesn’t go as planned. The damage manages to knock some memories loose that she cannot account for. All of these events set her on the path to her future, just not quite the way she had envisioned!


Audio Sample from Audible


Chase

Chase Elliot is gorgeous, a billionaire, and a werewolf. He is Ava’s “Hail Mary Pass” of a job to get back into her parents good graces. Once they lock eyes though, all bets are off! Neither one is ready to let go of the other, but secrets can only keep for so long before they have to deal with the reality of the situation.


“From the ashes of hate sprung great love.”
–Elena


All is not as it seems,and the twists are crazy good! The truth can hurt though when you are left with the quilt of your actions. Rufus will make you laugh. The horse falls asleep standing in the street! Seriously! I can’t wait to continue this series.


“Rufus is an excellent mount, and he loves a pretty woman.”
–Chase


♥ Author ♥

This is my 1st read/listen by Ellie Valentina, and if I wasn’t already hooked by the end of the book, she would of clinched it with that last bit about the senator’s son! Looking forward to more.

@ Chapter 04


Atlanta, Georgia—August 2011


What is this guys obession? or should I say Why?

There was far too much preparation ahead of him to be reckless now, and too much at stake.


Sidney, Georgia, the day after the party
(aka hanging with Dorthy)


So…… Bobby is our hero. Interesting.

So is she going to be staying in his time or is he going to be going to hers?


Piper sounds like a good friend to have!


Piper reminds me of my friend Malissa who I also met in 7th grade. Being an empath that wears their heart on their sleeve makes you a target and she never hesitated to be the muscle I couldn’t be.
–Thanks & I Love You Malissa!! XOXO—
 

(I’m such a sap, I cried just writing that)


What the hell is a keeping room?
Sounds like something out of a dungeon!

Looked it up.
A keeping room is a term that hearkens back to Colonial times when you only had 1 room in your house. Nowadays it would be more of a great room. A multiple function area near the kitchen where everyone can see everyone else.
Why she is talking like she is in Gone with Wind, I have no idea!


Ok, now we are going back and forth in time in Lacey’s head as she tries to remember what happened, so try not to get lost!

the date at the top of the Sidney Gazette read:
Sunday, November 6, 1949

@ Chapter 05


Lake Lanier, Georgia—September 2011


Nick Cramer has not been in the story yet, just incase you are wondering.

This week, he would confront his first real challenge, Nick Cramer.


Sidney, Georgia—November 6, 1949


34 years before she was born, so her parents are kids right now?


Daddy issues, figures!


“I don’t think love is something you look for. It just finds you.” He glanced over at me. “But you have to recognize it.”


It IS truly 1949, and the lake DOESN’T exist.

@ Chapter 06


Lake Lanier, Georgia—October 2011


What has he got himself into?

He’d put everything he owned at risk, including his life, and Lacey’s.


Sidney, Georgia—November 1949


I wonder how old Bobby’s sister is?
It sounds like she is close in age to Lacey.


“He says he wants the brass ring.”

Lacey is getting way too carried away with her pessimistic point of view!
Stop trying to turn Bobby into a bad guy!

Brass ring says to me that he is looking for a wife!
Sheesh Lady, its 1949!


What’s got Bobby worried? & What plant does he work for?


How much DOES Nick know?
Lots of timey-wimey questions to be answered!

@ Chapter 02


Lake Lanier, Georgia—June 2011


Stalker much dude?

There was no turning back. Obsession drove him forward.


The night of the party
(for those that need a reminder: June 9th 2012)


A: Are there shifters in this book?
B: Yes you are an idiot!
C: What did I tell you about driving angry!


I lived in Georgia and had heard of Lake Lanier but never all this lore. I totally missed out! 


Be careful what you wish for Lacey!

@ Chapter 03


Lake Lanier, Georgia—July 2011


Obsessed much? And now there are more guys!
What did Lacey do?


The morning after the party
(that should make this: June 10th 2012)


Why is she half dressed? Really?


Going to nit-pick here, that’s not how you say cicadas!


One of the coolest things I’ve ever seen, is watching a cicada hatch and pump his wings until they fully formed, right after learning about it in my invertebrate zoology class earlier that day! Too bad cell phone cameras were not a thing at the time. 


Speaking of cell phones, I don’t think we are in Kansas anymore Dorthy!

@ Chapter 01 Un-named Prologue


Lake Lanier, Georgia—June 2011 (see date, remember)


‘him’ WTF? I thought the main character was a ‘her’? Something fishy going on here and not just the dude in the water! Unless he’s a Merman?


His target: Lacey Madison Montgomery.


Oh no! That’s our ‘her’ he is after! Is Lacey the reason he is all wet? He doesn’t sound happy either way!


@ Chapter 01 (For Reals This Time!)


June 9th, 2012, Lake Lanier, Georgia


Ok, now we are with Lacey!
So Lacey is a lawyer and she doesn’t like rich people.
Anyone else smell a story here?


Oh no, the shady water guy is at the party! And is he really married or does she live in Canada with all the other fake partners?


Hit him!


Hit him again!


Now, Take a bow lady!


Didn’t Groundhog’s Day teach you anything!

Don’t Drive Angry!
