Review: The RED Wolf (Werewolves On HEAT #02) by Ellie Valentina

My ReviewsHeat, Heart, And Secrets!

The RED Wolf is #02 of 03 in Werewolves On Heat Series by Ellie Valentina.

Meghan Kelly narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are all in the same world, however I have yet to find any other connections. As of now, reading them as standalones should be OK.

Length: 4 hrs and 47 mins

Content Advisory:
There is sex, so if that bothers you then you should avoid.

โ™ฅ Story โ™ฅ

I was not able to find any direct character, location, or group connections between books one and two. If anyone has other info on that, please let me know. Both have werewolves as well as the heroine having majorly F*d up family situations. Josephine’s family life is not as heart breaking as Ava’s, but just as suspenseful.

Josephine โค Edward

Josephine Lancaster had a one night stand at her BFF’s wedding that left behind a gift of its own. Before she could process that fact, her father let drop his plans to be marry her to his much older business partner for better financial gain. Horrified, Josie ran and ended up getting a job with the last person she could of imagined, the father of her baby. Despite her bravery in avoiding a sham of a marriage, she turns into a big chicken when it comes to telling her baby-daddy the truth.

Edward Jake Hunter has secrets and trust issues of his own. After being used and manipulated for his gifts in the past, he is suspicious of most. Jake owns a construction business and is in desperate need of a new assistant, and is shocked to find the beautiful wedding fling as a potential hire. He wants her as much as before, but has reservations. Being the most qualified, he has no choice but to hire her. He knows she is hiding something, but is hoping its not as sinister as past experiences.

One might think they know how this is going to play out, but you would be wrong. The RED Wolf is so much more. There are several twist you won’t see coming. The secrets flow out at the speed of molasses, which can be a bit frustrating. It pays off if you can hold on and you will be left on the edge of your seat in the interim. There is heat and heart, and you won’t be disappointed. I was hoping for a side character to be the focus of the third book, but sadly, I don’t think that is the case. Maybe one will show up in a future book or spin-off series. Fingers crossed! ๐Ÿคž

Normal speed was fine, but I found slightly slower sounded best. I listened at 0.95 speed. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Review: Acceptable Risk (Chattanooga Supernaturals #3) By Candace Blevins

My ReviewsA Woman + A Hot Leopard + 2 Sexy Wolves = Yum!

Acceptable Risk is #3 in the Chattanooga Supernaturals Series
by Candace Blevins.

Noah Michael Levine narrates.

HEA, NO cheating, no cliffhangers!

This could be taken as a standalones, but they are connected by characters. I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Length: 2 hours and 57 minutes

Content Warning: This is a Reverse Harem. SEX! Lots! And it gets kinky! So if you do not like that sort of stuff, then you should avoid.

 

โ™ฅ Story โ™ฅ

This is a True Reverse Harem. All the men are there to please Bethany. They do not have sex with each other. Acceptable Risk features characters from previous books in this series as well as those from both the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club Series and the Safeword Series.

Bethany wants a harem like her friend Cassie, but just for right now. This girl has some relatioship issue! Mac, Jonathan, and Ranger are the men that are willing to extend that offer to our heroine. They have some issues of their own. The biggest being that they are supernaturals! Bethany freaks out more over the “mine” thing than the “furry” thing.

This is a short listen with a LOT of steam, but manages to have a lot of heart too! I like how caring the guys were. They were willing to talk Bethany through everything. That right there is the biggest fantasy part of the whole story !

Review: Playing Without Rules (Men of Spring Baseball #1) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsThe truth always has a way of finding the light.


Playing Without Rules is Book 1 of 4 in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently only 2 available in audio, but the rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Being the first in the series, this could be read as a standalone. I personally would suggest starting with the novella.

Length: 4 hrs and 23 mins

Content Advisory:
Authorโ€™s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.

โ™ฅ




โ™ฅ Story โ™ฅ

This is a tale of second chances. If you are into those kinds of tales, then you are going to like this. As a mom, I can relate to wanting whats best for your child. I didnโ€™t quite agree with some of Marciaโ€™s actions, but could understand the logic behind her choices.

โ™ฅ


Marcia โค Brock


Marcia

Marcia Powers told a lie four years ago over a miscommunication and has been running from it ever since, despite never leaving her small town. The holes she digs for herself just keep expanding, as all lies do. Bianca is the one that truly suffers in the wake of her motherโ€™s delusions of grandeur.

Brock

Brock Carter did what the love of his life asked of him and left town to pursue his baseball career. He wanted to make himself worthy of her heart. Now heโ€™s back, and determined to claim his dream, but Marcia doesnโ€™t want him to have anything to do with her or her โ€œlittle sisterโ€. A child that just happens to be close in age to the time frame he left town, but that thought never occurs.

I had more feels for Brock and the other members of Marciaโ€™s family than I did for her. She is a sloppy stack of pancakes on a good day, and she is a bit of a hypocrite. Luckily, the extra personalities balances everything out. There is a sneak peak at the end for Book 02, Playing Catch and it is quite amusing. I canโ€™t wait!

Review: Playing the Rookie (Men of Spring Baseball Novella) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsSomebody is wearing their horny pants!


Playing the Rookie is a Novella in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently 4 parts in this series with 2 being available in audio.
The rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Book notes for Playing the Rookie states that this Novella can be read at anytime along with the Men of Spring Series 1-3.
โ™ฅ I personally would suggest reading it first. โ™ฅ

Length: 2 hrs and 32 mins

Content Advisory:
Authorโ€™s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.

โ™ฅ Story โ™ฅ

This Novella is short but oh so sassy good. If you are starting with this title, then you get some early introductions to the sights and sounds that makes up the โ€œworldโ€ that is this series. You will also get to meet and greet a few characters that you will see again.

Jessica โค Jay

Jessica Song is interning for spring training, and spends way to much time talking to her lady bits. Jay Pak Ahn is a sponsored rookie pitcher from Korea trying to make a good showing that will hopefully lead to a long term spot on an American team.

Both of them are horny and tired of waiting for a relationship to get some. They are both gun shy on the relationship front because of their exes and decide to help each other out so they can indulge in the carnal. There is just this one big problem, neither are truly casual sex kinda people so they canโ€™t help but get feelings involved in the equation.

I feel bad for Jessica that her default thoughts on any expressions of emotion by Jay is automatically one of regret. Once she finally confesses her back story, you can see where that stems from, but she does take it to the extreme. Usually those thoughts come with the goodbyes or lack of contact after the deed, not the moment after climax.

There are some twists and turns that will come as a surprise. This does not play out in a predictable fashion. It does have some throat punch worthy moments, so be prepared to run the gambit of emotions even for a short listen.

Read Along With Me: No Ordinary Billionaire Part 06

Read Along With Me
@ Chapter 17


โ€œDanteโ€™s tests all came back negative,” WTF? What tests is this guy having? ‘Negative’ would imply that he ‘caught’ something.


โ€œThen heโ€™s back to his usual ornery self?โ€
–Jared


I love those little old ladies!


โ€œI think that Elsie should break the story.โ€
–Sarah


Way to go Sarah!


โ€œI hate to mention this, but youโ€™re in a hospital. I thought . . . I guess I was worried . . . oh hell, I just wondered if you were doing all right with thatโ€
–Emily


ooooooohhhh sexy times? Maybe!


โ€œIโ€™m lonely.โ€ He flipped back the covers and scooted to the left, making room for her in the small bed. โ€œCome sleep with me.โ€
–Dante


Nope! Grrr!

@ Chapter 18


Now we get smexy time!


Thereโ€™s nothing worse than being obsessed with a female whoโ€™s a damn doctor!
–Dante


If Sarah doesn’t get in her own way!


@ Chapter 19


We get to meet Mara Ross, who is the main focus of the next book, and she is just so adorkably cute!

โ™ฅ


Sarah’s negative Nancy attitude about Dante is getting old. Seriously! She is missing the obvious here. Get him a job locally. The offer is out there, just help him get there already!


โ€œWe gravitate to sweet because weโ€™re all assholes.โ€
–Dante


Apparently Dante likes the same denial koolaid as Sarah, but at least his is more productive.


โ€œSaturday. Want to place a bet?โ€
–Grady
