Mason

Book: Mason (Carter Brothers #2)
Author: Lisa Helen Gray

Summary: Mason Carter has always had feelings for Denny Smith and after they both give in to those feelings he pushes her away. He believes that Denny deserves so much more than he can be and that his past of too many hook-ups and his biological DNA will get in the way of a relationship. Denny loves Mason but when he breaks her hear after she gives him her virginity she tries hard to move on. However she can't when she learns that Mason left something behind from that night...a child. Months later when Denny comes back home to testify for her friend Harlow, Mason knows that he has to do everything in his power to show Denny that he truly does love her and wants to be in her life. Beyond this though is a dark force that has the potential to destroy Denny's life. 

Review: Another sweet hit from Lisa Helen Gray!!!
1. I love seeing Mason work so hard to show Denny how he really does truly love/care for her! I can't imagine how hard it is to com pate believing that your biological DNA is bad and you can't be a good husband/father etc. Seeing Mason and the other Carter brothers try to move past their bad life to hope for a future full of good! 
2. Denny is AMAZING!!! Super strong heroine who not only is working through having her heart broken, learning she is pregnant, being kicked out of her home and now having to testify against someone who is evil and having others who are threatening her. Man she fights back hard and its awesome! 
3. Her Nan (and Harlow's Nan) are Kick a** - I want to be like them when I grow up!
4. The book is super intense and always keeps you guessing and interested in the story line! 
5. Great read and this series is definitely on its way to becoming one of my favorite new series!!!!

Malik

Book: Malik (Carter Brother Series #1)
Author: Lisa Helen Gray

Summary: Harlow Evans is a teenage girl that is going through the worst experience ever. Not only did she just lose both of her parents in a tragic incident but now she is forced to move cities and schools to live with her grandmother. However once she gets to school her situation goes from bad to even worse when she ends up on the wrong side of some bullies at the school. She does though happen to meet Malik Carter and his brothers who go out of their way to protect and help her! The only question is will they be able to protect her at all times?

Review: Somehow magically I just ended up seeing this book and thought it looked interesting and so decided to read it. HOLY FREAKING CRAPOLA am I glad that I did. First off though make sure when you read this book you have plenty of time to finish it in one sitting! I literally started it before work (worst mistake ever!) I did absolutely nothing at work except want to read this book. (I'm a kindergarten teacher so this was really not recommended) This book completely swept me off my feet and I freaking want a Carter brother for myself. I mean yes they are in high school and the love emotions are deep but two people who can go through something so tragic and come out on the other side deserve to find love and peace at young ages! Harlow is amazing! I know she is a character but I can only hope that I would have that kind of courage at my age to go through what she did! Malik is amazing too, I mean so protective of Harlow and his siblings and will do anything to protect them! LOVE IT!!! Honestly the feels this book sends me is crazy and I will definitely be recommending it to anyone and everyone!!!!!

Review: Holy Cazolies! Alanea Alder does it again! She completely knocked this out of the park! It's such an amazing story and I've read it so many times already and each time gets better and better. Alanea Alder does an amazing job on the characters and their behavior! Amelia is super spunky and so crazy that she makes Maryn look adjusted! Daria is a Fae that has this dark side, as well as a light to him that you can't help but root for. We also learn so much about the Ferrel's and their plan and why they are behaving the way they are! Alanea Alder is an amazing author when one of the best series I've ever read!

Oceans of Fire

Book: Oceans of Fire (Drake Sisters #3)
Author: Christine Feehan 

Summary: Abigail Drake hails from a family with a long line of powerful witches. Her gift is an affinity with the Ocean and the creatures in it, especially dolphins. She also has the power to make people tell the truth, something that she hates. However she does enjoy the dolphins and loves to study them all over the world. This research takes her to Russia in which she finds herself falling in love with Aleksandr Volstov who is an agent. He ends up using Abigail for her gifts, and leaves her thinking she has been betrayed. Abigail leaves in a hurry and flees back to Sea Haven and her sisters to heal. While there she finds herself in the middle of a Russian operation that leads her back to Aleksandr. Alek knows he's going to do everything in his power to keep Abby safe and win back her love. 

Review: I give this 3.5 out of 5 stars and trust me I hated to do it to one of my favorite authors. I think the writing was perfect and the plot line was intriguing but the weak point was in the character of Abby. For some unknown reason she is my least favorite sister and I just can't really enjoy her and this definitely made the book a little harder to read. However just because I don't enjoy her doesn't mean others wont enjoy it! I did enjoy the plot line and their was a great mystery and introductions to some new characters that will come into play later in the series! Christine Feehan does a great job of keeping you sucked into the plot with out making their be too many different story lines going on.

This crush has cause him to crash vehicles, have people laughing at him and years of deep unresolved feelings for someone he thinks is out of his league.

Kate and Matt must work together to save the town and along the way the feelings they have for each other will show. But will they be able to save the town in time?

Review: I LOVE MATT GRANITE!!!!! The scene when he wrecks his car is not only hilarious but so endearing. Plus Kate is so sweet, but so hard on herself and she needs someone like Matt to show her how amazing she really is. I love the mystery behind the "Christmas" ghost and the whole time I read it I wanted to know who was controlling it and why. This writing was amazing and definitely makes you want to read the next book!
 

Magic in the wind

Book: Magic in the Wind (Drake Sisters #1)
Author: Christine Feehan

Summary: The Drake family is a witch family full of secrets and power. Their town of Sea Haven protects them and love's them for all that they do. When the oldest of the seven sisters comes home it is all the town can talk about.

However, when Damon came to Sea Haven he didn't come alone, so Sarah must use her powers to help save him. 

Review: I'm not gonna lie Damon Wilder is 100% my kind of man! A smart, stubborn hot guy who knows exactly what he wants. I love that he is literally so preoccupied with the paint from the family house that he misses other things. It's hilarious! I think this book was a great start to an amazing series. It was a great introduction to the Drake sisters and their powers. Christine Feehan has a great writing style that intrigues you and sucks you in until the book is over! I did give this 4.5 stars out of 5 just because I know she could have made it even more amazing then it already is! 

Smiley

Book: Smiley (New Species #13)
Author: Laurann Dohner 

Summary: 
Vanni is forced to go to a conference with her fiance to support his father's church. Vanni goes out when she finds out that they are protesting against the NSO. She gets so angry and goes to a hotel bar to calm down, little does she know she has just landed herself smack dap into the middle of a conspiracy. She and a New Species known as Smiley were both drugged with something that makes them extremely sexually attracted to each other. When the two of them come down from their drug high they need to figure out who drugged them and why. Smiley though is more than willing to bet that Vanni had nothing to do with it and is willing to bet his life on it. 

Review: 
Smiley has always been a favorite of mine and I have been waiting for so long for his story. I have to say that this story did not disappoint and I was so happy to finally see a primate get a story. This book was great and really ties in to the breeding drug that True's mate had been tested to deal with. Laurann Dohner does a great job in tying in all the different stories into a cohesive story line and flows well from one story to another. This book also had a ton of mysterious things that needed to be solved and kept you engaged the whole time! Plus I love a good species story and Laurann Dohner does not disappoint.

Darkness

Book: Darkness (New Species #12)
 Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: 
Kat’s boss wants dirt on the NSO. She is sent to Homeland undercover but everything goes wrong as soon as she enters the front gates. She is arrested by a big, powerful, sexy New Species but she is not frightened. He turns her on and things heat up fast between them. Now, she just hopes he doesn’t break her heart.

Darkness admires Kat’s courage but he cannot trust anything she says. He hasn’t been with a female for years because he knows he is too damaged. He is not mate material, despite his desire to possess her in every way. Darkness fears losing control—the one thing that defines his life. He doesn’t think he can tear down the protective walls he’s built, even for her.


Inside Scoop: Kat never realized how much fun handcuffs and dominant males could be until she discovered her kinky side through Darkness’ need for control.


Review: I feel like this book was just "eh" definitely not my favorite book! I guess it just didn't grab me as much as the other books, plus as much as I love Darkness his wasn't really the book I was hoping would be next so it put me in a mood when I read it. I did enjoy the interaction with the New Species Babies!

3 out of 5 stars.

True

Book: True (New Species #11)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Jeanie has been helping the New Species since she first saw them in the testing facility. She was willing to do anything to rescue all of them but most especially to save 710. After True is rescued he goes to work with the NSO team to rescue his people. He encounters Jeanie who was  technician at his sight that he believes betrayed him and his people. He wants to learn why she hurt him, but when the truth comes out True learns that Jeanie wasn't betraying him but was rather protecting him. Now they must prove that a human mole is setting Jeanie up and that she is innocent of the charges against her. 

Review: I just love True! I mean he's so sweet and tries so hard to be what Jeanie wants or what he thinks she wants. She says she doesn't like seeing the New Species fight so what does he do, he waits until she leaves so she can't see it! :) Perfect! Jeanie is amazing, I mean what she went through and did to protect and save the New Species! I don't know many people who could go through that! This book definitely has a few nail biting moments but its great and has an amazingly perfect ending! 

5 out of 5 stars!

Moon

Book: Moon (New Species #10)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Moon was hit with a tranquilizer dart that shattered his memory and has turned him almost feral. Dr. Joyce Yarder knew Moon as 466 and was his therapist right after he was released from Mercile. They both had an attraction that could have gotten them into trouble so Joy left the facility and Moon behind. Years later when she hears that he is hurt she returns to help, even if that help means getting naked to gain his attention. When Moon comes to and realizes Joy is there he has mixed emotions, but when she leaves again he is not willing to let her go this time!

Review: For me this book was super emotional, but in a good way! Every time Moon would go in and out of consciousness of who he was I would get so sad and just hoped that he would come out of it okay. I also loved the dynamic between Moon and Joy, two people who have strong emotions for each other but because of past hurts had just such a hard time coming together! So when they finally do come together or you at least think they do you can't help but get super excited - until Joy gets a phone call from her boss and has to leave. I literally looked down at my kindle and was like "wahh theres still a ton of pages left" So although it didn't end there I am glad that Laurann Dohner did add in the "extra" drama because it added a lot to the story and really made their coming together perfect! 

5 out of 5 stars!

Shadow

Book: Shadow (New Species #9)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Beauty is a Gift Species who is tired of being overly protected and hidden away from the males around her. When she goes outside for a hint of freedom she is mistaken as an enemy and is pined to the ground by a New Species. Shadow is stunned to realize he has a Gift under him and when he tries to radio for help Beauty freaks out. She just wants to be with someone to talk and hold on to. Will Beauty and Shadow be allowed to form a relationship or will outside forces prevent them from being together? 

Review: This is such a great story with two souls that have been abused and misused moving past their troubles to find love and comfort in another person. This is one of my favorites, not just in this Series but favorite in general. I love both characters - Beauty's strength and determination to move on from her past and grow, Shadow's sweetness and will power to hold strong from his past issues but still be gentle and loving with Beauty. The relationship between them is perfect and shows everyone how no matter how broken in the past you can move on to find that perfect someone! Plus when they signed the mating papers my heart melted with Joy!!!!

5 out of 5 stars!!! (I think I'm gonna have to go reread it again:))

Obsidian

Book: Obsidian (New Species # 8) 
 Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Dr. Allison Baxer is obsessed with saving the New Species 880 who lost his mate and is now in a coma. She knows she can save him even if her idea is unconventional so when the higher up Species deny her idea she takes it into her own hands. She kidnaps him from Homeland sets up her own lab and climbs into his bed. 880 wakes up to find a female laying next to him, teasing his senses but when he realizes she's human he quickly turns his lust into rage. Things change though when he is introduced to the New Species, he wants Alli by his side and will do whatever it takes to keep her. 

Review: I give Alli huge props for going above and beyond her job as a doctor to try and "fix" Obsidian. I think her will and determination is what makes this a great read and kept me interested to find out what would happen to her and if the course of action would actually work to awake Obsidian and if he would be happy to be awake. I did enjoy this book but there was something missing, some zing that made it fall just short of be an amazing story especially compared to some of the others in this series.

4 out of 5 stars. 

Wrath

Book: Wrath (New Species #6) 
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Wrath was subjected to horrific abuse by Mercile and knows he is to dangerous and damaged to be with a female. He volunteers to live outside Homeland and work with the all human male task force. While investigating he detains Lauren and they interrogate her. When another New Species takes the interrogation to far Wrath protects her and becomes her bodyguard and roommate. Can Wrath work past his issues and be the Mate that Lauren needs and wants? 

Review: Where do I find a New Species? I mean a male who will do anything to protect a woman even if its from himself! Amazing! I also love how fresh each book is, I think some series run out of ideas but each story in this series is not only different but so are the characters. I also can't help but be so happy that someone who suffered so much abuse is able to have a happy ending! Laurann Dohner does a great job of writing the story so that it sucks you in and you can actually feel what the characters are going through! I love this series and each book is a great addition to the overall story! 

5 out of 5 stars!

Tiger

Book: Tiger (New Species # 7)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Zandy is having a pretty awful day and the icing on top of it all is almost being killed during a bar fight. When she is saved she thinks her savior is an angel and she is determined to have him. It turns out rather that he is a New Species and is the Chief of Security at her new job. Tiger has always tried to stay away from human females because he doesn't ever want a mate, but every time he see's Tammy his instincts take over and he wants her as his! Will he push Zandy away for will she work her way into his life and his heart? 

Review: Okay, I know this book isn't real but I can't help but get angry at the protestors and when they *Spoiler* grab Zandy and try to burn her at the stake I can't help but be angry. Moving on to the book I was so excited to find out that this book was about Tiger because I have loved him in all the other stories and I have to say this lives up to my expectations from Laurann Dohner. Lots of action, violence and crazy people, great sex scenes and a love between two people that can't but help make you jealous! I love the fight that Tiger tries to put up against having a mate, but in the end he gives in to the love and connection he has with Zandy. Such a great read! Love it!

5 out of 5 stars! 

Brawn

Book: Brawn (New Species # 5)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Brawn is going to work with the Task force and is staying with the leader's human daughter Becca. Both are attracted to each other but Brawn has sworn to never touch a human female, so he must keep his hands off her. Things change though when they are kidnapped and locked in a cage together, good intentions go astray! The two are subjected to breeding experiments and they cling to each other until they are rescued. They part ways never expecting to see each other again, but fate has something else in mind. 

Review: I feel like Becca can not catch a break this whole book! I feel so bad for her she gets kidnapped, undergoes breeding experiments, thinks the man she loves hates her, winds up with a bun in the oven, is forced to go to the New Species home, thinks Brawn has moved on with another woman and has to deal with her crazy dad. What I do love though about her and other heroine's in this series is that they don't cry and are all "woe is me" but rather they fight back and try to save themselves and others. I also love the diversity in the characters and the story lines in each book. I really did love this story and I think that it introduced some great new characters that I hope will get their own books as well!

5 out of 5 stars!

Justice

Book: Justice (New Species #4)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Justice North is the public face of the New Species. His life is busy and crazy and leaves little time for interactions with females. However when he meets Jessie Dupree a human working with NSO to save the Gift's he is willing to make time for her. They know a relationship between them will never work but neither of them is willing to give up their stolen moments. Can they survive the turmoils or will Justice's busy life get in the way?

Review: This book is amazing and very emotional so be prepared to cry! I love Justice and Jessie and when Justice denies Jessie because he wants to protect her and the New Species...My heart broke! But when he claims her in front of all the Species at the party - HOT STUFF!!!! I'm glad that Justice has a mate and that it is someone like Jessie who is so sweet, but when bush comes to shove will do anything and everything to protect the one's she loves! Great addition to the series!

Valiant

Book: Valiant (New Species #3) 
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: Valiant is more lion than human and his features prove it. He hates humans, but when he gets a whiff of Tammy a human female he knows he must have her for all time as his mate. Tammy is overwhelmed and she hits Valiant on the head so he can escape, but she does feel a pull to him. Later Tammy is kidnapped by human mercenaries and the only one who can save her is Valiant who still wants her as his own. Will he make it in time so they can have their perfect ending? 

Review: I really loved this book! I mean Valiant is so sweet, this big huge Species who just wants a mate and then on the other hand he's a straight up bada** who can kick major butt and will do anything to protect Tammy. *sigh* The New Species are also hilarious and Laurann did a great job writing what it would actually be like to come from a sterile environment and then have to learn all these different things and how crazy/funny those learning situations would be! I also love not only the dynamic between Tammy and Valiant but how all the characters in the story really add to the plot and you can't help but fall in love with side characters and hope they get their own story/mate in the future! Great read!

5 out of 5 stars!

Slade

Book: Slade (New Species #2)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: When the New Species are saved from Mercile 215 is brought the the human hospital to be saves, while there he pins down Dr. Trisha Norbit and whispers promises of sexual favors in her ear. A year later the two meet again 215 also known as Slade doesn't remember her. Trisha is now interested in the breeding and sexual habits between humans and species for personal interest. What she gets is a dangerous situation that leads to a hands on experiment with Slade. The end result is something the Species never thought they could have and puts Trisha in a very scary spot. 

Review: I love Dr. Trisha and Slade together and they have the best back story on how they first meet! I mean who wouldn't love to be pinned down by a hot male? (I volunteer!!!! Me pick me!) Plus this book has so much action that you are entertained the whole entire time and you are always wanting to know whats going to happen next! It does get a little long but all of the story line is super relevant to the overall story and it is all well written that you don't even care if the book is long! This is a great read and great addition to the series!

4.5 stars out of 5! 

Fury

Book: Fury (New Species #1)
Author: Laurann Dohner

Summary: When Ellie finds out that the company she works for is doing illegal experiments on people she decides to work undercover to stop them. These "experiments" are people that have had DNA spliced with humans and animals and they have been chained up and tested all their lives. Fury and Ellie are caught in a bad situation and Fury believes to be betrayed by Ellie. When they meet again after the New Species are freed Fury vows for vengeance, even when he learns all the good that Ellie had done. Even knowing this he can't stop touching and obsessing over her. Somehow the two have to overcome what the world says if they want to be together. 

Review: This is such a fun series and if you have read Lora Leigh's Breed series and loved it then you will also enjoy this series! I definitely love all the characters and the names that the New Species pick are hilarious and so fitting for them as people. The relationship between Fury and Ellie is so interesting to witness, it starts off super rocky but quickly turns heated and then sweet. I love seeing how protective Fury is over Ellie. I think this is why this series and others about mates are so popular because what women doesn't want a hot sexy man who will always love you and never cheat! This book is also spicy red hot with some steamy steamy love scenes!! My only complaint (and its very minor) is that the was just a smudge too much drama that really took away from the whole plot line so I did have to take away .5 star for :( (I wish I didn't have to because it's so good!!!!) I recommend this series this 2 big thumbs up!

4.5 out of 5 stars!

Resisting Temptation

Book: Resisting Temptation (Men of Honor #3)
Author: K.C. Lynn

Summary: Cade Walker is a man with scars, both physical and mental. He's broken and detests God and love. Faith is a woman who has deep faith in God and shows it by traveling on mission work. Cade and Faith meet in Iraq and get to know each other when the unthinkable happens and Faith is kidnapped. Cade is able to save her and they go back to the states. Years later they meet again and this time do they have a chance for love and each other or will their baggage get in the way?

Review: Ahhh!!!! This book is AMAZING!!!! Cade sounds like an amazing man, all gruff and hard a** but then you see this soft and loving side to him. Plus who doesn't love the image of a buff, tatted guy in a freaking beanie! Through out the story you can't help but root for Cade and Faith to overcome their issues and be together. This book is very deep with a lot of dark issues including, child abuse, rape, neglect and murder and is guaranteed to make you cry. I love though how real this story is and how K.C. Lynn handled these issues and made them work for the story and to show others who may be going through these things that there is light at the end of the tunnel and that you don't have to stop your life but that you can overcome the obstacles thrown your way. This is just such a touching story with a lot of x-rated and spicy love scenes thrown in to really make it amazing. K.C. Lynn has to be one of my new favorite authors and I can't wait to see what else she has in store! 

I give this 5 out of 5 stars!

Sweet Temptation

Book: Sweet Temptation (Men of Honor #2) 
Author: K.C. Lynn

Summary: Grace ran away from her past but it still continues to haunt her. Sawyer an ex-seal wants to pull Grace out of her shell and get to know her sexually and emotionally. When her past catches up with her Sawyer will do anything to protect her and prove his love for her. 

Review: I love this story and wish that I could give it 5 stars, but there is a part that I was super upset about and had to dock it down a few stars for. So *Spoilers* when Sawyer has sex with Jenny after really trying to get with Grace and then Grace having to hear them going at it. I was super pissed, then when they "made up" and she pretty much just rolled over and allowed it, ummm hell no!!! My man does something like this its gonna take a lot of groveling to even closely make up for it. Plus it was not needed for the storyline to work, and it definitely not only angered me as a reader but a lot of other readers as well and hurt a really amazing story. Thankfully this all happens at the beginning of the book and so by the end of the story you are able to put it away especially when Sawyer does some amazing and sweet things for Grace. If that whole scene with Jenny was not there this book would definitely have 5 stars because it is Spicy Red Hot!!!

I give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars. 

Fighting Temptation

Book: Fighting Temptation (Men of Honor #1) 
Author: K.C. Lynn

Summary: Jaxson Reid is and will always be a "bad boy" but deep down he's always had a soft spot for Julia Sinclair.

Fast forward five years later and Jaxson is back to fix the mistakes he's made. He will fight not only to protect her but also fight his own personal demons so they can finally be together. 

Review: I love a good bad boy and Jaxson Reid completely fits the bill! This book is steamy hot and will make you laugh, cry and have you rooting for them to be together. For a first time author and first book K.C. Lynn knocked it out of the freaking park with this story. Not only is the story line very well written but it's a story that will suck you in and takes you for a ride! Loved it so much!!!! 

I definitely give this a 5 out of 5 stars!!!!

Never More

Book: Never More (Gray Court #6)
Author: Dana Marie Bell

Summary: Amanda Pierson is on what she thought was a vacation to see her BFF Ruby. Somehow though she is roped into planning a last-minute wedding for Michaela and Robin. No problem, right?

Raven must attempt to hold onto all that is dear to him and explain what's going on to Amanda and attend his father's wedding! 

Review: Best Book Ever!!! I'm not one to pick a favorite in a series until they are all written but I just can help myself because this book is amazing. For me the characters are just perfect! I've always had a thing for Raven since he was introduced in Robin's story. He has a sexy name, he's sweet yet a bad a** at the same time. Plus he has awesome powers and when he clips on the feather to her I mean who wouldn't love that! Amanda is a great character as well, witty, strong an a little devious! I mean the scene when they are eating dinner and turning each other on is the freaking best!!!

I definitely give this 5 out of 5 stars!!!!!

Siren's Song

Book: Siren's Song (Gray Court #5)
Author: Dana Marie Bell

Summary: High King Oberon is lost and has no memory of who he is. Cassie knows the truth not only on who he is in general but also who he is to her. She is sent by Shane Dunne to help him restore his memory and keep him out of the Black Courts clutches. When his memory is restored he makes a vow to return to his rightful place with his Queen at his side. After Cassie's life is threatened and Oberon will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. 

Review: My only complaint with this book is that in the formatting of the book and within the chapters there are parts and places that skip from one group of characters to the next group but there is no space or mark to show this move. So at first it was confusing but other than this formatting glitch the story line is excellent! I love Cassie and she makes not only a great Queen but a great true bond for Oberon. Oberon in the other books was so untouchable yet very kingly and in this story he felt more normal and touchable which was great. I just love how amazing this series is and how great each book is! 

I give this a 5 out of 5 stars!

Not Broken

Book: Not Broken (True Destiny #5) 
Author: Dana Marie Bell

Summary: Magnus Grimm and his family were able to save Loki's song Slepnir from Odin. What Magnus did not know is that Slepnir is a horse shifter that has been hiding his human side from everyone including his own father.

Sylvia no longer wants to follow Odin or Frig but Loki and Baldur are not sure if she is to be trusted. She must not only prove her loyalty but also her love for Magnus and Slade. 

Review: I'm not gonna lie in this story the relationship boundaries in this story push the limit a little. I mean Sylvia is Magnus's ex-Step-Mom which takes time to digest and move past. However the relationship between the three does seem to work and the way they work out their problems is beautiful. I also love the introduction of the new characters an I can't wait to see how their stories play out as well! 

I rate this 5 out of 5 stars.

Review: This book may not be for everyone but I loved it! It's hilarious to see them trying to teach Fenris all about the world now! Things that we completely take for granted and he had to learn  so it was awesome the way Dana Marie Bell incorporated it into the story! It is also so cool to see how the prophesy plays out in the story and you cna't help but root for them to beat Odin.

Review: This is definitely a favorite series of mine and I love all of the characters in the storyline. I especially love Jamie and Travis! Jamie is hilarious and her thought process is so entertaining. It's also so cute to see the way Travis try's to sneak under her radar to fit himself into her life and show how much he really does care.

Meryn is freaking hilarious and engaging and who doesn't love Doctor Who references! I was literally laughing the whole entire time I read this story because not only was the relationship between Aidan and Meryn hilarious but so were all the other relationships in the story even the minor ones.

The GIft

Author: Julie Garwood

Years later Sara is still waiting for Nathan to come and claim her as his wife and save her from her family. Nathan over the years has been sailing the seas and couldn't be bothered with wife. However now he is need of the money he would gain from an heir and sets off to get his wife. This than leads to a kidnapping, a crazy trip on the sea, a pirate attack and a growing love between two people. 

Review: I wish I could join this family! Nathan is so head strong and funny in a quiet way! My favorite part is when he constantly says "damn it Sara" and you can feel the real emotion behind why he is always saying it! Even though he is very unromantic and anti love in the beginning of the story through out the plot he changes and starts to really express his feelings. The ball scene when he professed his love to Sara is one of the sweetest things ever! Julie Garwood does such an amazing job of creating characters that are so engaging and entertaining that you do not want to put the book down. You really experience the emotions with the characters and that is what makes her such an amazing author. 

5 out of 5 stars!!! :)
