Review – Ancient Enforcer by Katie Reus

53710745. sy475

Ancient Enforcer; Ancients Rising #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 26, 2021

Genre: Paranormal/Fantasy Romance

Author: Katie Reus

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars



This was my first time in this dragon shifter world and meeting Mikael and all of the supernatural beings in this book made this an exciting, fun read.

Mikael and his brothers awoke to a new world, which was very different than when he went to sleep thousands of years ago, but as he acclimated to this new time, he was happy to have a certain female in charge of that acclimation, as she may be his mate.

Avery doesn’t believe in love as she watched her parents marriage fail. When Mikael lands in her life she does her best to ignore his sexy dragon body and it should be easy since dragons and humans can’t mix, can they?

On top of the swirling feelings between them, Avery’s stepmother is on the hunt to kill her, a dark evil is swirling about the city she loves that may be out to hurt everyone she cares about.

I enjoyed the multiple POV’s while reading, it kept the action moving and guided the main characters on their path towards finding their happiness together. It lead many possibilities towards where the next books in the series could go.

This was my first time reading Katie Reus and even though this is book three in the series I had no trouble jumping in and beginning with Ancient Enforcer.

An ancient dragon warrior determined to protect what’s his…

Former general Mikael lost everything thousands of years ago. His clan, his family, his honor. Now he’s awakened in a new world that has devolved into chaos—fire, blood and destruction. He and his brothers are ordered to live with Avery, a human female, and her younger brothers. Avery is nothing he should want. She’s too soft, too sweet…too happy. But he can’t stop his growing obsession with her.

The human female who threatens his jaded heart…

House flipper Avery is no stranger to heartbreak, and knows that the ones you love most can stab you in the back the quickest. When she’s asked to shelter a bunch of dragon shifters, her instinct is to say no. Until she meets the ragtag group of males who are struggling to adjust to the new world. Against her better judgment, she agrees to take them in. Even if the gruff Mikael has heartbreak written all over him, she can’t help but fall for the sexy dragon a little more every day. But when a threat from her past emerges, promising to tear her world apart, things suddenly change between them. As they race against the clock to save her family, Mikael must risk everything and claim her before it’s too late.

ANCIENT ENFORCER, the third title in the Ancients Rising Series!

Review – Thorns and Forgiveness by Coralee June

56095974. sy475

Thorns and Forgiveness; Twisted Legacy #2 
(#2 in a Duet)

Publication Date: January 30, 2021

Genre: Dark/Anti-hero/Forbidden Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



A gorgeous, dramatic read with a dirty talking anti-hero that I absolutely adore!

Thorns and Forgiveness picks right up where we left Hamilton and Vera in book one. Filled with regret, remorse and feelings that he’s never felt for anyone Hamilton makes the decision to stay away from Vera because the Beauregard’s are poison and being he’s a Beauregard himself, he will only infect her himself over and over and no amount of forgiveness will ever remove that amount of poison in her life. However, it seems that the Beauregard’s aren’t exactly done with Vera nor her mother.

Vera has always given everything to those in her life, plucking and taking until she’s empty. When she finally meets her breaking point she finally decides to take back the power in her life, but is it too late to help guide those who helped her in her time of need. She may no longer have any petals to pluck, but she’s now a stem full of thorns and anyone who tempts to cross her better be ready to bleed.

Full of my favorite sarcastic man and watching Vera find her inner strength, this book is absolutely amazing!!

Review – The Revelation of Light and Dark by Sawyer Bennett

55207456. sy475

The Revelation of Light and Dark; Chronicles of the Stone Veil #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: February 9, 2021

Genre: A five book urban fantasy/paranormal romance

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars



An intriguing look at a new world that includes Fae and Gods and a grouchy anti-hero.

In a world where Gods play games and humans are mere pawns, Finlay discovers there is more to her world than just living as a fraile mortal. Growing up believing she was crazy, seeing the unbelievable, in fact she’s surrounded by Fae, daemons and other creatures that walk not only earth, but other realms beyond this world.

As happy as she is to discover she’s not mad, it’s overwhelming to discover she possesses powers that no one seems to understand, much less the grumpy pain in the a** Carrick who might also be something else, but is unwilling to share more of himself.

Pompous, conceited and rich, Carrick holds all of the power in their odd dynamic and while he desires to know everything about his new toy he also snears at her very existence. It’s unfortunate that he needs her to help save his own because he’d rather just stay away.

Finlay needs his help in her business life and in this new world she’s just discovering. The more she learns the more she realizes that she can’t walk it without knowledge and unfortunately Carrick seems to know it. If he doesn’t get her killed first she may get the answers she seeks, so as much as she’d like to walk away everytime he treats her less than the bottom of his shoe, she may get what she needs from the egotistical jerk.

This is book 1 in a 5 book series.


I always knew I was different.

From a young age, my mind has been plagued with things only I could see. Some hauntingly beautiful, others completely terrifying. Never knowing if these visions were real or just hallucinations, I learned how to lock them down and ignore them. I learned to take solace in the relative anonymity of city life and find peace in the rainy days my city of Seattle is known for.

But just when I think my life is getting on track and my dreams are achievable, a moment of weakness causes me to learn a hard and fast lesson.

My entire existence has been a lie.

Now I’m faced with a new reality that’s as implausible as it is fantastical. Filled with realms and veils, light and dark, fae and daemons, gods and angels—things I don’t understand but am forced to acknowledge. It doesn’t help that the man teaching me about my unique gifts is the gorgeously handsome Carrick Byrne, one of Seattle’s richest and most powerful men. He intimidates, annoys, and intrigues me all at the same time. I don’t trust him and yet there’s no one else to help me.

No longer certain who to put my faith in, what to believe, or how I fit into it all, one revelation is clear…

The world as I know it will never be the same again.
