Review – Beyond My Darkness by R.C. Boldt

60387101. sy475

Beyond My Darkness
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 12, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Romantic Suspense/Gang/Supernatural Twist

Author: R.C. Boldt

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This book was just everything! Funny and witty, steamy and intense with a supernatural flair and dark gang vibes. Every moment flowed and all of the characters clicked together with ease, so what I’m trying to say is….it was reading perfection!

This is R.C. Boldt writing at her best. Combing her wit of steamy romcoms with her walk into the romantic suspense relm. This combination is so good and so well pieced together that the intense moments are perfectly well balanced with lots of snarky humor.

Georgia Danvers was an absolute delight. Sassy and smart and totally full of word vomit every time she’s around Bronson Cortez, the leader of the Scorpion gang. While Georgia knows better than to attract Bronson’s attention, she can’t avoid the dead bodies that keep piling up in her morgue, that literally keep telling her warn him. What is a girl to do when she can speak to the dead?

Bronson doesn’t trust outsiders, but when a gorgeous redhead shows up in his territory to give him a message, it’s safe to say that he doesn’t like it and has a message of his own. However, Georgia is a fiery woman who continues to come back again and again. There are not many people who stand up to Bronson Cortez and live to see another day, especially ones who sass back the way she does, but there is something about her that intrigues him.  Whatever it is he wishes he could figure out before it proves too dangerous for both of them.

Bronson is a great anti-hero and honestly Georgia is too. Both of them hold their own forms of darkness, but they are also good people if you look at them from all the different angles. I LOVE these kind of stories and especially love how the characters find their paths to each other. Anti-heros never have an easy road as there are always a ton of obstacles to overcome and this book added in mystery with that touch of supernatural so it really had an extra zing that kept the pages turning.

Synopsis:
USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt delivers a seductively unique romantic suspense with a paranormal twist in Beyond My Darkness…

Twelve years ago, I fled, vowing to never again use my power. But everything changes when I break that vow and bring two bodies back to life in the morgue.

It sends me spinning directly into his orbit.

Arrogant. Menacing. Enigmatic. That’s Bronson Cortez, the notoriously violent gang leader who remains elusive to authorities.

He breaks the law at every turn and answers to no one. But when he offers me an alluring glimpse of what lies beneath that iron-clad exterior, I realize there’s more to him than meets the eye.

The man who fiercely guards his heart somehow manages to claim mine.

But he doesn’t know the truth about me.

I wonder if he could be the first to accept me for who I am—what I am.

I wonder if he’ll be the first to see beyond my darkness.

Review – A Kingdom of Stars and Shadows by Holly Renee

60900007. sy475

A Kingdom of Stars and Shadows; Stars and Shadows #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: July 15, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Enemies to Lovers/Forbidden Romance/Fantasy Romance

Author: Holly Renee

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The Kingdom of Stars and Shadows is the reason why I love Fantasy Romance. I can’t stop thinking about it, I already want to reread it, it is just that good!!

I love a good fantasy book, but even better I love a great twist on an old myth. Holly Renee has done both and she has done it extremely well. The Kingdom of Stars and Shadows has heat, plot, action and a cliffy that left me craving the next book right now.

Adara, known as Starblessed due to her markings, is betrothed to the crown prince of Citlali. While most people in her position, those with this honor would jump at her chance, Adara has always despised the knowledge that her life would never her own. I loved her spirit and her fierce determination and she never once wavered in her core morals. She is a wonderfully written heroine that is both feminine and strong. She fit very well within this storyline.

While Adara is betrothed to the crown prince, Gavril, Adara finds herself drawn to another during her time at the palace. A dark prince who stirs her desires and draws all of her attention. As much as she wishes, Evren can not be her savior, he is loyal to the crown and not a full blood prince, but she is torn in two between what her heart wants and saving a kingdom.

There were so many aspects of this fantasy world that completely blew my mind, but had the desired effect of drawing me farther in to the overall fantasy of the story. I needed ALL the details of every how, why, or what which I gobbled right up.

Once I picked up this book I did not set it down once. I was hooked and completely pulled into this amazing world that Holly created. I can hardly wait to return to find out what’s in store after the ending, but until then, I know a reread will be in my future because I need to revisit these characters again.

Synopsis:
Destiny or desire?

Where does your allegiance lie?

I am told my union to the crowned prince will determine the fate of the kingdom, but it isn’t my betrothed who haunts my dreams. It’s the half-breed prince who stands at his side.

He is darkness and sin, and when he whispers promises of wickedness in my ear, I crave a man who I can’t have.

Every thought I have is treasonous. The way my hands ache to touch him deceitful.

Even my dreams make me a traitor to the kingdom I am sworn to protect.

But when the kingdom is attacked, I am forced to make choices I’m not prepared for. Our lies and deception are entangled in the shadows and stars, and as they unravel so shall my fate. Betray a kingdom or betray my heart.

Open the gate…if you dare.

The first thing I’m warned about when I arrive at the girls’ home is to stay away from the abandoned graveyard. Local urban legend claims it’s host to a gate to Hell.

Ruthless.
Deadly.
Terrifying.

The gate’s three wicked protectors won’t let me get away without paying their price.

Review – Hell Gate by Veronica Eden

60756536. sy475

Hell Gate; Twisted Legends Collection #5
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Twisted Myth/Paranormal/Reverse Harem/Dark Romance

Author: Veronica Eden

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I love a tale or myth that is twisted with new flair and makes me giddy to turn each page to discover how it will end. Hell Gate is a fantastic twist on an old lore, classic legend, and centuries old myth that I adored and pretty much salvated over until the very end.

A take on hell and the hierarchy, lore, and legend that comes out of there can really go so many ways and yet it can also go poorly very quickly. That is not the case with Eden’s newest book. Three demons, Valerian, Matthias, and Alder guard one hell gate, a portal between the mortal world and hell. Lily, a mortal, just so happens to be the one who summons those three and thus begins their epic journey.

Their journey to save, not only themselves, but Lily, is full of suspense, adventure, and self discovery. Lily has been shuffled from foster home to foster home and not only has she always felt inadequate, but there is something inside her that sets her apart from others. Her journey to discover why she feels this way and gaining her self worth is magical.

As for the demons that Lily summoned from hell, each unique and picking my favorite is nearly impossible. I could go with the obvious, Matthias, he’s fun, wears his emotions and feelings on his sleeve and always says what he’s thinking. From the moment he meets Lily he’s basically smitten with her and never fails to affirm her inner beauty and strength while praising how much he loves her outer beauty. He’s a total charmer and a key component to the mix.

Alder is the warrier, the strength and always makes Lily feel safe. He can be the reasonable one of the bunch, but he’s also very much an alpha when it comes to Lily. However, he shares very nicely with his demon brothers…is it getting hotter in here?!?

Lastly we come to, Valerian, the broody, silent demon. Lily and Vale bicker and fight like its their foreplay, but he always pulls away. It’s hard for him to admit weakness, especially given his past and right in the midst of what they are going through, Lily is a huge weakness. However, Valerian will never abandon her and he will always protect her. It’s so hard not to like him, even when he’s super broody.

So like I said, who can pick, I want all three just like Lily does, yum. The bond all four of them create is not only steamy to the extreme, but it’s quite beautiful too. The weaving myths and legends were unexpected and I love reading new twists on old tales. This entire book took me on a journey that was new and refreshing and I loved every moment of it. Extremely well thought out and written. It deserves way more than five stars!!

When It Ends
(A standalone)

Publication Date: June 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Apocalyptic/Reverse Harem/Second Chance/New Adult Romance

Author: Penelope Black

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
High octane, adrenaline pumping book!

When it Ends was non-stop action where I could picture all of the best CGI action, end of the world movies literally in my mind. The fast moving plot kept me up reading late, late, late because once I began this book I could not put it down. This is definitely a book that is read cover to cover.

Amelia – (Cher, Ames, Mia), is just returning to Vegas after being gone for five years. Her father is seismologist and is one of the members on a team who has predicted the coming end. Among all of this doomsday knowledge, Amelia runs into her past, well…everything. West and Cole were her best friends, her first crushes, and some of her firsts in other ways as well. When she left Vegas she was crushed, but there is a lot of backstory there that just needs to be read to make everything fit.

West is very accepting of Amelia’s return. He’s the sunshiny, happy guy out of the three, but he’s also Cole’s best friend, which is where some of the tension lies. Cole is bitter and angry that Amelia left five years ago and his walls are high and covered with thick thorns. These two have been thick as thieves for years. Growing up in the foster system together they are brothers in every sense of the word aside from blood.

To round out their bunch, and probably my favorite character, is Gray also known as Sonny. Amelia meets him before she even makes it back to Vegas. I like to think of him as fated for their survival and to Amelia for sure. His presence within the group is that final piece that holds everything together. Every time he’s on the page I love what he brings either to the group or individually.

Their trip to safety is wrought with world-ending disasters. It’s do or die time and the four of them have to make it, so it’s time to put the past to rest so they have a future.

Phase of Fate; Shifter Romance #1 
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: April 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Paranormal/Shifter/New Adult Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A uniquely stunning beginning to a new paranormal romance by Coralee June. My mind is still swimming with all the emotions and imagery from this epic beginning where I was pulled in from the very beginning and left hanging with my jaw wide open at the very end. This book was so well done it deserves well beyond 5 stars!!!!

Phase of Fate begins in tragedy and is steeped in grief. This is a feeling I’m familiar with and Coralee writes it like she’s a bed partner with it. Halle is barely keeping her head above water after losing her sister and best friend in the most horrific manner, but upon a precipice of change she undergoes a shift that she never wanted and fears at the depth of her soul.

Theo is an Alpha shifter, a budding Alpha, but one who had been training for leading a pack his entire life. When his instinct pulls him towards Halle, he can’t fight it as much as he would want to. His wolf tells him Halle belongs to him, but the defiant girl infuriates him, defies him, and messes with his future which derails all the Alpha plans he ever had. The fates have decided that he can’t ignore her no matter what he originally planned now that Halle is his, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it.

Halle never asked for a guardian, especially an overprotective, growly one that she will never feel comfortable around. However, when her life changes and Theo becomes hers, her life no longer becomes hers in every single way. She needs to find a solution to save herself and save others as well. She won’t see other Prodigy’s suffer the same fate as her sister.

I can hardly describe how much I connected with Halle. Certainly not with having an overbearing shifter stuck to my side, I wish…but with the feelings of always being in the shadow or always being less than. I’m jammed right in the middle of two siblings and was always compared to both my entire life living in both of their shadows. Halle…well, I empathized with her emotions and her grief on a huge level.

Coralee truly infused this book into my thoughts and soul. I was dreaming about the book and couldn’t stop thinking about the characters or plot for days. While this has to be one of the slowest burns I’ve read when it comes to romance, I hardly noticed because it’s brilliantly written and has a totally original plot. I can hardly wait for the rest of the book to arrive more so because I’m addicted to the story vs.the slow moving chemistry. Who knew?!?

Don’t miss this fantastic read, especially if you love paranormal, new adult books. This one is a must read!!

In the new world, where the old world is long forgotten, an evil queen sits on the throne, and anyone who challenges her reign is a mortal enemy—I am that enemy just by breathing.

The queen always gets what she wants, and she wants me dead.

Then one day, my life is turned upside down by a prophecy naming me the one true queen. I was oblivious to the true roles of the two men in my life—the Angel of Light and the Angel of Death—as my existence hung in the balance. One man there to save me, the other to claim me should the queen succeed in her quest for my blood.

But every time she nearly succeeds in my demise, my dark angel swoops in, pulling me back to safety. Making the world stop. Pulling everything back in balance.

Tired of being hunted by the vampires, slaves to the queen, I decide to fight back. It’s the only way to survive. I’m going to tear down the wards one by one and free my allies—the witches and the wolves—and then I’m going to force the queen from the safety of her castle and claim what’s rightfully mine.

Her kingdom.

Her throne.

Her crown.

Blog Tour – A Vow of Ruin by Sherilee Gray

Release Date: March 29
 

Iris
It’s the scars you can’t see…
After my last boyfriend tried to kill me, I swore off relationships for life. So why can’t I stop thinking about the dangerous—and completely unstable—alpha of the new wolf pack in town?

Thankfully, my heart isn’t in any danger, because Draven Moreau hates me with a fiery passion.

But when witches start disappearing and the fate of our coven’s magic falls to me, I desperately need his help. Only he doesn’t want anything to do with me…until he does. With a hidden enemy drawing me into their sick and twisted game, Draven suddenly wants me close, whether I like it or not.

As darkness closes in and the horrors of the past are repeated, I’ll have to fight for my life—and a love I’d never dared to hope for.

Review – A Vow of Ruin by Sherilee Gray

59457596. sy475

A Vow of Ruin; The Thornheart Trials #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Shifter/Paranormal/Epic Romance

Author: Sherilee Gray

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An epic romance that brings adventure, mystery, passion, and two unlikely mates together with explosive heat.

Iris Thornheart is a witch and every time Draven Moreau is in her vicinity she can feel the hate rolling off of him. She doesn’t know what she personally did to offend him, but his animosity game is strong. Even as she tells him to stay away, his stalker game is also strong. Every time she turns around there he is, but overtime she doesn’t seem to mind, especially as he seems to be there at the right time when she needs help.

Draven doesn’t enjoy the overwhelming pull to the coven witch. He’d basically do anything not to feel the burning desire for her, but he can’t seem to stay away. Iris reminds him of a woman he hates and letting that anger go, an anger that has been boiling for centuries won’t disappear overnight, no matter what the attraction to Iris is.

Iris and Draven’s chemistry is off the charts and their back and forth is a great build up for this enemies to lovers story. Where a mating instinct is strong in wolves, hence Draven’s stalkerish ways, Iris isn’t quite on board to be mated to the man who doesn’t like her. After her last relationship went south she doesn’t want to be mated to anyone period.

These two mates are destined by the fates, but can they work when love isn’t involved? I loved this premise where two people didn’t just fall for one other over the heat of mating, but fought it every step of the way with the logic of their burned pasts. It built lots of angst and chemistry between them and really built the story.

Aside from just their budding romance, Iris has a mystery to unravel, a task to complete within her coven to keep them safe and add in her mate problems, Iris feels like the world is upon her shoulders.

This is a fantastic epic read and while I haven’t read the other books in this series, I’m highly intrigued to jump into them and continue with the Thornheart series as it unfolds.

Review – Unlikely Queen by T.L. Smith

59049201. sy475

Unlikely Queen; Crystal Castle #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: March 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Supernatural/Paranormal/Epic Romance

Author: T.L. Smith

Review Rating: 4 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I love all things supernatural and Unlikely Queen encompasses several items under that umbrella. Vampires, witches, werewolves, angels, demons, prophecies, etc…This book is an epic tale that covers a lot of creatures and history, but also barely scratches the surface at times on how it all came to be.

Talia and her sisters, Tatiana and Tanya are witches in this new world run by an evil queen, but why exactly she’s evil is sometimes unclear. While there is a prophecy that one witch will take out the ruling queen and basically make drastic changes, that witch was never exactly named, but once Talia begins showing her massive powers it’s assumed it’s her. Even Talia deep down knows it’s her, but it’s never really explained how she knows either.

To take out the current queen, Talia enlists the help of other creatures, which takes her on a LOTR type of adventure, walking all throughout the countryside and having mini-adventures. There’s a lot of good in this book, but there’s a lot left unsaid, which makes the plot a little cloudy, but perhaps those loose ends will be answered in the next book.

I loved all the interaction between various supernatural creatures, especially with the angels and demons. That mix with otherworldly creatures was enjoyable for the overall plot. As for the romance aspect, it’s very mild, which isn’t completely unexpected with an epic adventure, but it was even more tame than even I was expecting.

I have a lot of thoughts on this book and I while I finished it with even more questions, perhaps they will be answered in the next book.

Synopsis:
The prophecy foretold of the true queen…
In the new world, where the old world is long forgotten, an evil queen sits on the throne, and anyone who challenges her reign is a mortal enemy—I am that enemy just by breathing.
The queen always gets what she wants, and she wants me dead.
Then one day, my life is turned upside down by a prophecy naming me the one true queen.

About I Think Knot

No. Nope. Knot going to happen.

I may be an omega, but I’ve got dreams and goals of my own, and none of them include shacking up with a pack of raging alphas just because biology says I have to. Sure, that time will come and I’ll welcome it with open arms, but for now, I’m doing me.

I’ve managed to make a name for myself on the PackChat App, unintentionally starting a movement that has earned me millions of followers, along with plenty of enemies. Namely, a rival group known as RideAnAlpha. They drive me crazy with their constant lewd and rude comments, and, admittedly, their thirst traps showing off their hot bodies and abs for days. What? I’m in self-isolation, not dead, after all. They’re the bane of my existence, but I’m a pro at being oblivious.

As my birthday looms, my bestie convinces me to attend a major influencer conference where my rivals and I are keynote speakers. I’m determined to prove the real Bexley Carter is not the evil omega they portray me as. I’ll get in, get out, and stay just long enough to figuratively give them the finger…or maybe literally, time will tell. No thoughts of claiming or bonds or heats since, you know, they hate me and all. I should be safe, right?

Because…I think knot!

I Think Knot is book one in the Knot Yours Omegaverse, a series of fast-burn reverse harem romance standalones. Each book will end in an HEA and lead into the next book with a new reluctant omega and her own possessive, purring alphas.

Broken Heir; Ruthless Warlords #3
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Dark Mafia/Omegaverse/Sci-Fi Romance

Author: Alison Aimes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Delicious Alphaverse action from start to finish!

Alexi Skolov is on a mission. He’s been tasked to find his missing brother and he’s currently in the desolate region of Sartin. A burnt out terrain where the sun will scorch you if you are caught out in the sun’s rays. This world isn’t for the meek and it breaks Alexis’ heart knowing his lost brother could have ended up here when he was kidnapped almost sixteen years ago. To even enter this dark world, terms had to be met, Alexi has been promised to one of the omega’s. So while he was originally hoping to only leave with his brother, he’ll also be leaving with a mate. That was a term he never saw for himself, especially considering his condition.

Keira Sartin has been put down and told she’s worthless most of her life. While she realizes that omegas serve their purpose, she realizes that her lack of gift and ability to produce an heir makes her less than other omegas. However, she’s never let it get in the way of helping others. She uses her intellect and kindness to help the underground movement and helps omegas escape the abuse and omega trading right from under her uncle’s nose. While he believes she’s worthless and unnoticeable, she uses that fact against him at every turn.

Alexi and Keira may have never met under normal circumstances, but fate has a way of working out. These two souls have felt broken and worthless their entire lives, that is until they meet and realize that together they are worthy. Together they can achieve anything. Together they can see each other’s potential, which truly strengthens their inner qualities. Qualities that they used to believe were weaknesses. Their story is full of passion, but more than that it’s one of building self esteem, inner beauty from believing in yourself, and loving yourself so you can love someone else.

There were moments where their brokenness is emotional, but the strength they draw from one another is so beautiful I couldn’t help but feel their love pour off the page and don’t get me startled on their passion. Whew! Hot! Hot! Hot!

Also, Keira’s cousin, Maddox, is an amazing secondary character, but that’s all I’m saying about him for now.

I love this entire omegaverse world, but Alexi and Keira may be my favorite couple yet.

Synopsis:

What is the one thing a sinner can’t allow?
Temptation.
But Keira Sartin is all that and more.
A walking, talking dream. She calls to every cell in Alexi’s messed-up, rule-breaking soul.

Except she’s forbidden.
Addictive.
A distraction he can’t afford.

Not when his family is depending on him and redemption is within reach.
Not when his mission hinges on making no waves and fulfilling his duty.
Not when she’s the sister of his bride-to-be.

What’s the one thing a troublemaker can’t afford?
More trouble.
But Alexi Skolov is all that and more.

He’s beauty incarnate.
Flesh and blood sin.
Wild nights and dark pleasure.

He’s also up to no good. Which means he’s not for her.
She has her own objective to fulfill and he’ll only get in the way.
He’s also promised to her sister.

It should be easy for them both: just stay away.
But running from temptation is hard. Avoiding trouble even harder—and sometimes it catches up to you, leaving you…
breathless,
begging,
Broken.

About I Think Knot

No. Nope. Knot going to happen.

I may be an omega, but I’ve got dreams and goals of my own, and none of them include shacking up with a pack of raging alphas just because biology says I have to. Sure, that time will come and I’ll welcome it with open arms, but for now, I’m doing me.

I’ve managed to make a name for myself on the PackChat App, unintentionally starting a movement that has earned me millions of followers, along with plenty of enemies. Namely, a rival group known as RideAnAlpha. They drive me crazy with their constant lewd and rude comments, and, admittedly, their thirst traps showing off their hot bodies and abs for days. What? I’m in self-isolation, not dead, after all. They’re the bane of my existence, but I’m a pro at being oblivious.

As my birthday looms, my bestie convinces me to attend a major influencer conference where my rivals and I are keynote speakers. I’m determined to prove the real Bexley Carter is not the evil omega they portray me as. I’ll get in, get out, and stay just long enough to figuratively give them the finger…or maybe literally, time will tell. No thoughts of claiming or bonds or heats since, you know, they hate me and all. I should be safe, right?

Because…I think knot!

I Think Knot is book one in the Knot Yours Omegaverse, a series of fast-burn reverse harem romance standalones. Each book will end in an HEA and lead into the next book with a new reluctant omega and her own possessive, purring alphas.

Review – Bond of Destiny by Tessa Hale

58327932. sy475

Bond of Destiny; Shifting Fate #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: March 23, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Paranormal/Shifter/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Tessa Hale

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Bond of Destiny begins with high adrenaline and picks up right where we left Rowan, in the clutches of her deranged father.

In the final book of this non-stop action fantasy trilogy, Rowen and her mates tie up loose ends and finally figure out how to make their bond work for them. The whole trilogy has been quite an adventure and everything wraps up wonderfully.

Every bond mate is different and for Rowan, having five mates is unique. She loves each of her men individually and she wants them to love her for herself and not because some fate decides. In this final book she finally comes to terms with their love and how strong it has become. Rowan has dealt with a lot in a very short amount of time and while trouble seems to follow her and her mates wherever they go, they always step up and are stronger when they all fight together.

Once they finally recognize that their love really will conquer evil, they stay strong and work to bring about change. It’s not an easy road and there is angst and turmoil to get there, but what a worthy cause to have love as the backbone in any foundation.

Told from Rowan’s POV, this reverse harem is full of action and steamy moments which focus solely on the heroine’s pleasure.

Review – I Think Knot by Sinclair Kelly

59770683. sy475

I Think Knot; Knot Yours Omegaverse #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 16, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Sci-Fi /Reverse Harem/Intrigue Romance

Author: Sinclair Kelly

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A knot-y, hot time with a touch of suspense…YES!!! This is my first Sinclair Kelly book and I will definitely be back for more.

Well written with plot, steam, and so much unique knotted pleasure time, I seriously wanted more. I was hoping for more ways for this pack to come together they were that amazing. I didn’t want this story to end.

Bexley is a social influencer, I loved this angle, and the guys; Hawke, Crew, Ax, and Shaw are also influencers as well. There is also one more guy to add to the mix, Ax’s twin, Cam, but I won’t give away how Cam falls into Bexley’s life.

Their social pages have a lot of back and forth animosity for about a year until they finally meet in person at a conference and once again this book shows a lot about this day and age that people are different behind a screen vs. who they are in person. Sinclair captured these moments perfectly, while also staying in the Omegaverse universe. It was brilliant.

Can a woman who runs a media account that talks about being an independent Omega fall for a pack of Alpha’s? Biology and a whole lot of purring may change her mind.

The suspense was just the right mix to break up all the smexy times and keep the plot moving. An excellent first book in the Knot Yours series. I can hardly wait to return.

Synopsis:

No. Nope. Knot going to happen.

About Obtaining Hope

The time has come to end this.

No longer will I hide away locked in my own sorrow. Instead, I will channel that pain into righteous fury. Once again I’m reconnected with my mates, and with new allies who have been dealt the same ruthless hand as me— finally have the army I need.

The call has been sent out for those who want their pound of flesh to come together.

My enemy isn’t going down without a fight. Every move we make, they follow it up with one of their own. What they don’t know is that with each attack, I gain the knowledge I need, that will aid me in taking them down. We know where they are hiding, and we know the cruel things they’re still doing to those they claim to protect. That just fuels my thirst for vengeance.

This battle will end in one of two ways—their death or ours—and I don’t plan on dying anytime soon.

Book 4 out of 4

This is a medium burn reverse harem where the leading character will not have to choose between her men. It is an 18+ book that has strong language, sexual situations, along with darker material such as torture, violence, and some matters pertaining to the fragility of life.

Review – Obtaining Hope by Elizabeth Knight

58405088. sy475

Obtaining Hope; Hope Series #4 
(#4 within a series)

Publication Date: January 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Reverse Harem/Shifter/Paranormal Romance

Author: Elizabeth Knight

Review Rating: 4 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The dramatic conclusion to a RH, shifter series.

This was my first Elizabeth Knight book. I know….I started at the end of a series, but I easily caught up to the plot of what Viv and her mates were facing and felt the love she shared with all seven (YES, seven) of her men. That would be a lot of laundry to clean, but these men are werewolves and they bust out of their clothes when they shift, sooooo laundry problem solved.

In this final book of the Hope Series and there is a lot of suspense and action. Tracking down the enemy to finally achieving peace takes not only Viv and her seven mates, but the help of wolves throughout the country. This is the time that Viv’s Dama really comes shining through.

Is any of this story plausible? This is a paranormal story, so absolutely not, but there were scenes that certainly had me thinking, even with their paranormal abilities that this group would have needed more time in planning the big attacks that they did. That is truly my opinion and I’m sticking with it.

There are moments that could be sensitive for some readers, regarding motherhood and loss of life, but this is also a fantastical world so I feel Elizabeth kept that in mind when writing those bits.

This is a series that is best read in order, but I did jump in right at the end and enjoyed the final book to this werewolf world.

Excerpt

“Adele.” Rafe catches my elbows to steady me as I bounce off his immovable form.

I’m more flustered than a misstep calls for, but it’s only because my nerves were already ragged over asking Rafe for a job, and now that I’ve decided I don’t actually want the job, I feel somehow caught.

“Rafe,” I manage to say. Don’t be nervous. Imagine him naked.

Trouble is, I imagine Rafe naked far too much.

He’s still holding my elbows, standing far too close. Rafe’s not as Hollywood good-looking as his brother Lance, who recently knocked up my friend Charlie. His hair is darker. His eyes are green. Lance is charming in that laidback, lazy smile kind of way. Rafe is the opposite. No charm. Definitely not laidback. There’s a ruggedness and ferocity about him that makes being around him feel terribly dangerous.

Dangerous, intense, and… exciting.

He’s the kind of guy you’d want on your side, not against it. Last week, when my business partner turned up dead, Charlie got kidnapped, and I was picked up by the police for questioning, I learned exactly how powerful it is to have a guy like him in my court.

So I’m already beholden to Rafe.

Something I hate. Don’t trust a man …

“I—um—I was just leaving.”

“You were?” His brows go down, gaze sweeps over me. “It looks like you just got here.” His eyes snag on my high heeled boots. “You walk in the snow in those?”

“Yes?” Why did I make that sound like a question? Something about his surly black brows makes me uncertain. I clear my throat and try again. “Yes, of course.”

“You need to be more careful. Those boots aren’t good in the snow.” And there it is, the most annoying thing about Rafe. He orders everyone around. The fact that he’s always in fatigue pants and a gray or army green Henley doesn’t lessen his drill sergeant vibe. Neither does the way he stands and looks down on everyone, like a general inspecting his troops and finding us all wanting. I think it’s great he had a military career—when I first met him, I thanked him for his service—but he’s not the boss of me!

I’m tempted to declare that and stomp my boots like I’m four, but that won’t help him take me seriously. Or land me a job.

“Are you meeting someone?” Rafe asks.

“No. Um, yes. Ah—” I shake my head. I’m on the spot here, not sure whether to flee or beg. Neither idea appeals.

Of course, he doesn’t make it easy for me. He releases my elbows to put his hands on his hips, like I’m in trouble, and now I have to answer to him.

Screw this. I can’t work for him.

“Nothing. Nevermind. I have to go.” I try to move past him, but he moves to block my path.

“Hang on a second. Were you here to see me? Or did something happen?” He scans the restaurant with a scowl, as if to identify some mystery offender who was rude to me.

Shoot. Maybe I am supposed to ask him for a job. I mean, here he is, insisting I explain myself.

“Rafe, I—”

At the sound of his name, his gaze snaps back to mine, locking and honing in. When I nervously lick the lip gloss off my lips, his gaze dips to my mouth. A hungry expression comes over his face.

God, I’m hungry, too. And not for food.

Every time I’m near this guy, a slow thrum of awareness tunes up between my legs. His big body, hard and solid with muscle, his dark hair and eyes… I gaze up at him, and it’s all too easy to imagine what it would be like to be underneath him. He’d probably order me, as bossy and dominant in bed as he is out.

And wouldn’t that be delicious?

No, no, no. I absolutely do not want Rafe, naked and looming over me, telling me what to do. That would be terrible.

Gawd, my panties are soaked. Time to get this conversation back on track. I take a second to remember how much Rafe annoys me and raise my chin.

“Honestly?” I say. “I came to see if you, um, still needed help. You know, in the kitchen. I’m, ah, not going to be able to reopen The Chocolatier at the moment.”

Rafe goes still, his brows angled together in concern.

It’s way more of a reaction than I expected from him. I don’t know what I thought he’d do—blow me off or tell me to fill out an application. But instead, he grabs my hand and draws me further into the Grille. “Come here,” he says gruffly.
