Truthful Silence by Cecile Tellier

I won a copy of this book in a giveaway.

 5 out of 5 Stars

I like that they were able to reunite their family. I'm glad that it all worked out between the siblings. The reunion between her friend and brother was quick. Eric is a stupid overprotective, alpha male idiot, which is why we love him. The loss of contact was disheartening and I'm glad she moved for her too, not just to be near Eric.

Recommendation: New Adult isn't a genre I normally read but this was a good, emotional read.

Do You Take this Cat? (Wind River Pack 4) by Missy Martine

I won this book in a giveaway.

3 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
Ray eventually redeemed himself.

What did I not like?
I don't like the way people are pushing and judging Rennia. How is what she did any different from the guy who doesn't tell his lady he's a shifter right away.

Recommendation: I'm hoping they save the girl (wonder if she's the non-shifting sister who is possible mate to Ayden and Colton). Looking forward to the next book.

The Touch of Her Hands (Wind River Pack 3) by Missy Martine

I won this book in a giveaway.

5 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
I love that she is able to heal the children but that is gonna be a lot of work, protecting her both from the world and herself.

What did I not like?
Lyssa is going to be a problem. It sucks that Zack had to believe she died.

Recommendation: Good read.

An Officer and Two Gentlemen (Wind River Pack 2) by Missy Martine

I won this book in a giveaway.

4 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
I love Fluffy's name.  Their family loves them, no reason they couldn't have been mates, but all things happen at their own time and place.

What did I not like?
The brother, Ray, is an idiot.

Recommendation: Other than wanting to smack Ray for being so ungrateful and an ass, this was a great read.

Blind Acceptance (Wind River Pack 1) by Missy Martine

I won this book in a giveaway.

5  out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
I like that though the heroine has an obvious handicap it doesn't stop or even slow her down. I like that the heroes make time for her individually as well as working on their group dynamic. I love how they suggest ways to help her (paperwork in braille) rather than try to take over, they let her learn her way.

Recommendation: Loved it!

Clothing the Naked Sheriff (Celestial Nights 1) by Rebecca Joyce

I won this book in a giveaway.

5 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
This is a new one for me. I love the over-the-topness of the whole story. The overblown and sheer craziness kept me intrigued and entertained throughout the story.

Recommendation: The ending is a twist and I loved it. Definitely planning on getting more in this series.

Spotlight & ARC Review: Curves 'em Right (Paranormal Dating Agency 4) by Milly Taiden

Blurb:
Paranormal Dating Agency Book 4 - STANDALONE
BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance
A BBW in search of love + two sexy wolf shifters ready to claim her as their mate = Sizzling Ménage Romance

Daniella Flores is looking for a good man. A man who will accept her as she is and go crazy for her curves. So far she’s had no luck in the romance department and is worried she might never find the right one. When Mrs. Wilder of the PDA offers to help, Dani is all for trying anything. Mrs. Wilder promises to find her love, romance and hot sex. What woman in her right mind would say no to that?

Kane and Blake have been searching for a mate to complete their Alpha triad. There’s just one problem: they’ve yet to find a woman they both want. Not to worry, Kane’s mother comes to the rescue and brings in the PDA. Unfortunately for them, Mrs. Wilder has something up her sleeve and it’s not a bra. When they meet their mysterious date, they know she’s the woman they need.

A masquerade ball brings Dani and the shifters together. The two men who are really good friends with Dani’s overprotective older brother. She’ll get one chance to finally live the fantasy night she’s always wanted with the wild wolves. Besides, it’s not like they could really want her for a mate. It will take some maneuvering for Kane and Blake to keep Dani, not lose their friend and their pack, and prove her curves are the only ones they want.

Reader Warning: This book contains panty-melting sex (the kind that makes you need fudge and a cold shower), adult language (we like some freaky dirty talk), and violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with two men on one curvy sarcastic girl, then this is right up your alley.

Enjoy!

Excerpt:
“May I ask, are you averse to multiples?”
Say what? “I’m sorry what do you mean? Multiple what? Dates?”
“Multiple men. I’m not sure if you are aware, but some shifter packs have what’s called a Triad. That means two leaders need a female to complete their Alpha set and lead the pack. Together. They mate together and they sleep together. Almost all the time.”
She raised her brows in surprise. “You mean like a ménage but forever?”
“Yeah. Happily ménage ever after.”
“Well, shit. Count me in. I don’t care if you can get me one, two, or a whole pack of men who want me. As long as they genuinely want to be with me and are not just doing it out of some duty to help out the fat girl.”
“My clients are not that kind. They’re aggressive. Possessive. Jealous. They love their women because of their curves, not despite them. And they will show it.”

My Review:
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
I love the best friend's sibling trope so this already had brownie points with me. I love the reactions when the sibling finds out, usually with some big blow out (brother usually acts first and thinks later). Gerri is deliciously devious in this one, especially since she doesn't know their history. I loved watching the alpha pair eat their words.

What did I not like?
I think that her co-workers are terrible. She is much too nice to put up with that.

Recommendation: I love this series. There hasn't been one that I didn't want to read and re-read and this one is no exception.

ARC Review: Watch Me (Dark Obsession #1) by Cynthia Eden

Received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 Stars

What did I like? 
This story was suspenseful and the story kept me intrigued. I didn't want the story to end.

What did I not like? 
Hope Ethan can move on and find love. Daniel was super creepy.

Recommendation: Looking forward to more in this series. Hoping to see Will & Faith's story in the future.

ARC: Tempting Boundaries (Montgomery Ink 2) by Carrie Ann Ryan

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 Stars

What did I like?
I liked that Sierra tore into Griffin for his quick trigger temper. The hero and heroine have a long way to go. It is going to take a lot of work and forgiveness to make this work. Having a relationship when the players are that tight is difficult and this story definitely shows that reality.

What did I not like?
I hope that police officer gets fired, that was completely unprofessional and absolutely a jack bottom move.

Recommendation: I'm hopeful that Alex's story is coming.
