Eris Adderly-The Last Dominant

Eris Adderly is back with a new scifi romance for us, The Last Dominant. This is a sizzling hot enemies-to-lovers that takes an intergalactic war and turns in into something much more personal. So, let’s talk about it, shall we?

The planets of Imbria and Rhyolus have been at war, either hot or cold, for generations upon generations. They don’t trust each other and they spy on the other. So, when a Rhyolusian military unit was found at an Imbrian outpost, it’s a very not good thing.

Rushkah is a lieutenant who is being “interrogated” by an Imbrian general. For interrogated, read having a cold gun firing at her hand until it nearly freezes off. But then, a medic stops the torture-happy guy, who is, BTW, totes getting off on this, because Rushkah is a genetic match. Who or what is she a genetic match for?

Qillian is the Minister of Records for Imbria. He’s also their best chance at translating a dead language. And oh yeah, he is the last person in the entire world who has the Push. He’s a telekinetic of untold power, and has basically spent his entire life in a benevolent prison, because he is Imbria’s greatest weapon. For Qillian, the gene is dominant, and the Imbrians have been trying to find a genetic match for him for years, to try and breed more of his bloodline. That’s where Rushkah comes in. She carries the gene as a recessive, and the Imbrians want to breed her to Qillian to see if they can come up with babies. Neither one are very taken with the idea, but their hands are forced and they have to do it.

See, if I were Qillian, I would so totally have called their bluff. They need him a helluva lot more than he needs them, and I wouldn’t want my child brought up in the toxic environment that exists. I personally don’t trust the Imbrians at all, not at all, and I wouldn’t put it past the government to take the child away and make Qillian and Rushkah keep breeding. Then, who would those kids breed to so that the next next generation would be born? See what I’m saying? It’s totally creepy, if you ask me. And I honestly wouldn’t put it past the government. If they take the child/ren away, they can have the child/ren raised in the “family” they want it to be, and indoctrinated heavily. Like I said, I just don’t trust that government.

I really like both Rushkah and Qillian. They are definitely both strong characters and they both believe firmly in what they are doing. I think that they are perfect for each other. He needs someone who can and will stand up to him and not just roll over for him because he’s who he is. She needs someone who she can’t just run over and who can take control of her when needed. I think it’s perfect.

I love when Rushkah shows up Qillian at what is supposed to be his specialty. LOL. And it took him so long to figure out that she had done it.

I’m really hoping that there is going to be more in this series, because it sure seems like Eris has set it up like there is going to be someplace to go.

So, that’s all I have to say about this one. I loved reading it, so go check it out! Happy reading!

Grace Goodwin-Ascension Saga 6, 7, & 8

Well, Grace is back with her teasing Ascension Saga, this time with books 6, 7, & 8. As a reminder, this saga is set in the Interstellar Bride universe, but it is slightly different to the IBP books. Instead of a human woman finding her ideal mate out among the stars, we are following the Aleran royal family and their fight to take back their planet.

Queen Celene had to leave her planet in a rush because of an attempted coup, when her mate and king consort was killed. The Aleran society is a matriarchal one, and the lineage is always through the females. Celene was pregnant at the time, and she managed to escape to a tiny backwater planet known as Earth, where she had her daughter, Trinity, and married a human man and had twins by him, Faith and Destiny. When Celene is kidnapped away from Earth, her three daughters, who have been raised to rule Alera, rush to Alera and put into place their plan to rescue their mom.

Books 1-3 are Trinity’s story, where we meet her mate Leo. Books 4-6 are Faith’s books, along with her mate Thor. Books 7-9 are Destiny’s books, and she meets her mate. Who he is, I’m not telling. You’ll just have to go read the books to find out. You know you wanna. Trinity’s story is out as a box set and Faith’s is either out now or will be shortly, if you would rather get them as a box set instead of serialized. The same will happen with Destiny’s books, when the last one comes out. Which can’t be soon enough for me, dammit.

Because of the serial nature of the books, it’s really hard to talk about what happens in one book to the next, because if I talk about each of the books, then it’s going to spoil, and you all know how much I hate to do that. So, since I can’t remember how I did it for the last two posts, and I’m too tired to go back and check today, since it’s been a very long day in a very long week, I’m just going to give some of my reactions.

In book 6, I still think Thor is an idiot. I’m pretty sure that I might have said that before, but he’s still an idiot. Faith though, Faith is downright lethal. I love the Miss Fisher Mysteries, and there is a line in one of the episodes about the right dress and fashion being dangerous and lethal. Faith made me think of that line in this book, which was totally fitting.

When we start focusing on Destiny, we learn a lot about her that we didn’t know before. Mostly because until know we’ve only seen her through her sisters’ eyes, so I’m really digging learning more about Destiny. She’s a straight-up badass motherfucker. She’s a warrior and a hunter, plain and simple. The man who takes her to mate is going to have to realize that and support her through that, no matter what he may want to do. Destiny is going to be one of those women who doesn’t want a shield, she wants a partner, someone who will respect her fighting side and be there with her during it.

I can’t wait for the last book in the series. Grace is being terribly mean to us, and I don’t know how I’ll ever last.

I have a guess as to who the ultimate bad guy may be. It would be interesting if it was really the person that I think it was. I’m not going to say who I think it was. That way none of you will ever know if I’m right or not.

Nix is awesome, but awesomely stupid sometimes. I do like he and Destiny together though.

OK, that’s all for this one! Go check it out and happy reading!

I’m the devil’s spawn.
The son of evil incarnate.
The heir to corruption and depravity.

Gabrielle Duval once belonged to me. And whether she likes it or not, she’s destined to be mine again. What will it take to lure this luscious woman back into my bed? A deal with the devil himself, of course.

My name is JD Wilder, and this is the story of how I reclaim what’s mine.

About Eva

A confirmed city-girl, Eva moved to rural Western Massachusetts in 2014. She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Natalie Bennett-Crucible

International best selling author Natalie Bennett is back with the start of a new series. And it looks like it’s going to be just as dark and fucked up as some of her other books. I can’t fucking wait. It all starts with Crucible.

A crucible is a vessel in which metal ore or solid metal goes into before it’s put into a smelter so that it can get refined and melted down. When most people talk about a crucible, they are talking about a difficult trial that they have gone through, and which makes them stronger or breaks them altogether on the other side. And this is definitely a crucible for Raelynn.

Rae has left all the life she knew before to start over in the tiny town of Harmony Springs. It’s so small, I don’t even know if it has the population to be an actual town. Maybe it’s only a village, but I digress. Her parents helped her find a Tudor style home and fixed it up for her. It’s got a real retro glam feel to it, because that’s Rae’s personal aesthetic. While she doesn’t really need to work, she sees a help wanted sign at the local diner and decides to be a waitress. While she is working there, she meets the Blackwood twins, Jace and Kaiden, which totally changes her life.

The Blackwoods are THE family of Harmony Springs. Those in the know know that they are up to something, but not everyone in town knows what they like to do. Some of the people who don’t know kind of suspect that something is up with them, but no one says anything. The twins are the town heartthrobs, and they know it. Their dad saw Raelynn on her first day in town, and knew that she was the right person for his boys. And that was all she wrote. Or he wrote, or someone wrote.

As this is a Natalie Bennett book, you aren’t going to be surprised that there is a heavy dose of mindfuckery going on in this book. Nor should you be surprised that there is some serious darkness. Natalie can go to the horror place, and does sometimes (a lot of times?), but I don’t think that this one goes to that place, at least not at the moment. It does go to the dark place, but again, Natalie. There is a lot of tension going on and only some of it seems to be resolved at any point. Because it is a quick prequel to a new series, it is rather cliffhanger-y, but it’s going to be worth it, I do believe.

I like Rae, but I think that she’s a little naive at times. The twins are just kind of creeperish and creepy at the same time and definitely hiding every damn secret in the world. I’m looking forward to finding out more about their sister and their friends. The story is going to be so good. Again, because Natalie. I haven’t found anything of hers that I haven’t liked, as of yet.

c3f2be90a3e2b93434ea387fc9d0f092l-m0o

I have to say that the cat showing up with a tag that had my address on it would’ve had me noping right the fuck out of there. And if that didn’t do it, the picture in the mail sure as fuck would’ve. This is what I mean about me thinking that Rae was kind of naive. Eddie Murphy does a whole comedy bit about how if a black family had been in Poltergeist or Amityville Horror, they would’ve been out of there at the first sign of something paranormal. Yup, I totally agree. The first creepy ass thing that happened would see my ass out the door and waving bye-bye. I might’ve even left skid marks. Then again, if Rae had done that, it would be a totally different story, right?

I think that she should’ve broken into the shed much earlier, like the first or second day she was there, but again, see above about different story.

I have to wonder, how much are Rae’s parents involved in what’s going on? Maybe I’m just paranoid AF, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t in it up to their eyeballs.

OK, that’s all for this one. If you love Natalie Bennett, this is definitely one you are going to have to go read. Happy reading!

Ascension 7:
Destiny Jones is a princess with a bad attitude. She doesn’t play nice with others, she doesn’t dress up in pretty clothes, and she has absolutely zero interest in behaving like a lady. Especially when she’s so close to catching the people who tried to have her killed. Oh, and kidnapped her mother, queen of the planet Alera. Destiny’s sex-starved body, and it’s annoying Aleran Ardor, might kill her if her enemies don’t find her first. But she’s not afraid to suffer, or risk her life to protect those she loves, but she’s terrified of risking her heart.

Vennix was trained to hunt and to kill from the shadows. After years of serving in the Hive wars as an elite member of the Coalition’s Shadow Unit, he returned home to fight for the one thing he believes in, honor. Dedicating his life to the queen’s guard was an easy decision—but watching the most beautiful woman he’s ever met repeatedly risk her life is about to drive him mad.

Because Destiny is his. His body awakened for her. And if his new mate thinks Nix will stand idly by as she suffers without his skillful lover’s touch, she is very, very mistaken…

Loki Renard & Jane Henry-Hard Time

Loki and Jane have gotten together again and co-written another great book. Hard Time is the sequel to their last book, and it was definitely worth the wait.

Rico is an FBI agent, and he’s bound and determined to bring down the Francoise family. They are up to no good, and he’s over it. He is also just slightly obsessed with Jasmine Francoise. She’s beautiful, talented, gorgeous, and definitely into whatever her family is doing right up to her pretty eyebrows. He follows her around and pulls her over in her fancy little car every chance he gets. He’s attracted to her, and he’d love to turn her over his knee and paddle her naughty ass.

Jasmine is controlled by her father and brother. She doesn’t want to do anything that they are making her do, but her dad will hurt her if she doesn’t do anything. She’s making her plans to get away, but it isn’t always easy. Her one bright spot is when she gets to see Rico. She wants him so much, but he’s law and she’s… not. But, when push comes to shove, Rico is there to help her.

I felt so sorry for Jasmine. She’s really just put into a horrible place with her father. He’s a fucking asshole. Just a fucking asshole. Her brother isn’t necessarily better, most of the time. But, even with me feeling sorry for her, I think that she’s stronger than she thought that she was. Rico is a good guy, I mean, yeah, he’s a cop, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are good people, if you know what I mean. But, he really is a good man, and all he wants to do is be Jasmine’s Daddy and to take care of his little girl. The chemistry between the two of them is pretty explosive.

Remember how I said that her dad was a fucking asshole? Yeah, he’s even worse than that, but that’s OK, he gets everything he deserves.

I think we may be getting a story about her brother next and it will be an MM. I hope so. That will be so awesome.

OK. That’s all for this one! Go check it out! Happy reading!
