Sustained by Emma Chase



A knight in tarnished armor is still a knight.
 
When you’re a defense attorney in Washington, DC, you see firsthand how hard life can be, and that sometimes the only way to survive is to be harder. I have a reputation for being cold, callous, and intimidating—and that suits me just fine. In fact, it’s necessary when I’m breaking down a witness on the stand.
 
Complications don’t work for me—I’m a “need-to-know” type of man. If you’re my client, tell me the basic facts. If you’re my date, stick to what will get you off. I’m not a therapist or Prince Charming—and I don’t pretend to be.
 
Then Chelsea McQuaid and her six orphaned nieces and nephews came along and complicated the ever-loving hell out of my life. Now I’m going to Mommy & Me classes, One Direction concerts, the emergency room, and am knee deep in a damn compost pit.
 
Chelsea’s too sweet, too innocent, and too gorgeous for her own good. She tries to be tough, but she’s not. She needs someone to help her, and defend her…and the kids.
 
And that—that, I know how to do.

I’m not going to lie. I had a bad reaction to Stanton—the hero in book one, Overruled— and nearly passed up Sustained. Honestly, I nearly skipped the rest of the Legal Briefs series just because Stanton left such a bad taste in mouth. Thankfully, Sustained was screaming at me to pick it up and give it a chance and, blimey, I’m so glad that I did.
 
So, here’s what’s going on. Jake Becker’s a DC defense attorney who likes playing the field. He’s fine with jumping from one woman to the next, he’s definitely not the type of guy who is looking to settle down. Then he’s given cause to give up his causal encounters and actually get to know the woman before he sleeps with her. Although when a young boy nicks Jake’s wallet, Jake finds himself drawn to the boy’s aunt, Chelsea McQuaid, who just so happens to be the exact opposite of Jake.
 
This book was brilliant. Emma Chase excels at writing a strong masculine character.
 
 
Sorry, Cinderella, but the clock struck twelve. The coach has turned back into a pumpkin and it’s time to collect your glass slipper. I never pretended to be Prince Charming.
 
So, yeah, at the beginning I was totally singing the Wanker song in Jake’s honor. Although I really liked Jake. If you’ve read Chase’s Tangled series, Jake bears a strong resemblance to Drew Evans, and I so loved Drew. Jake’s arrogant, cocky, a bit of a wanker, and completely terrified of any form of commitment yet he’s a lovable wanker you want to root for.
 
He’s tidy, organized, and the only kid he likes is Stanton’s daughter so when Chelsea comes barging into his life with her herd of nieces and nephews it throws his life into a tailspin but he’s unable to walk away.
 
I really enjoyed Chelsea. She’s became an instant guardian to her brother’s children and, while she’s struggling a bit, she never once thought about walking away.  She’s strong, determined, a bit chaotic but she’s making it work. I liked how she never really pushed Jake into a relationship although she wasn’t going to allow herself to be his doormat.
 
The chemistry between Jake and Chelsea was amazing. It took a bit of time to get them between the sheets, but it was so worth it once they did.
 
When I read the blurb and noticed that there were six children in the book, I was a bit curious to see how that was going to work out. I was slightly worried that so many children would throw off the pacing and bog down the story although it worked out brilliant. Each of the kids had their own personality and it was definitely entertaining to see how Jake handled them.
 
This book is told strictly from Jake’s POV although I was able to glean a really good sense of Chelsea.
 
Overall, while I still get a bit growly when I see Stanton’s name pop up, I really enjoyed Sustained. I could not put this book down and it reminded me why I fell in love with Emma Chase.
 
I cannot wait to read this book again.

Updated to include: I just wanted to mention that this book does work brilliantly as a standalone.

Ever After by Rachel Lacey



CAUGHT IN THE ACT
Olivia Bennett is not having a happy birthday. Instead of blowing out her twenty-nine candles, she's stuck in jail, caught red-handed in a graffiti incident that (perhaps) involved one too many strawberry margaritas. Worst idea ever. The only bright side is that she ended up in the strong arms of the most gorgeous lawman she's ever seen.
 
Pete Sampson (aka Deputy Hot Stuff) faces intense pressure from the sheriff to find out who's behind a string of vandalisms. And after her spray-painting spree, Olivia is suspect number one. Still, Pete can't stop thinking about her. Wanting her. Now he's torn between his duty and his overpowering desire for the vivacious waitress. But he may have to bend the rules because true love is more important than the letter of the law . . .
 
Title: Ever After | Series: Love To The Rescue #3 | Author: Rachel Lacey | Publisher: Forever | Release Date: 8/25/2015 | Genre: Contemporary Romance | Source: Publisher | Rating: 4

After one too margaritas, Olivia Bennett decides to celebrate her twenty-ninth birthday by spray-painting the side of a chicken processing plant in hopes of bringing awareness to the animal cruelty going on in the plant. However, things go slightly awry when she tumbles from her ladder straight into the arms of the deputy sheriff who is there to arrest her for vandalism.
 
Although Pete Sampson caught Olivia red-handed, his gut is telling him that the attractive waitress isn’t the one leading a string a vandalisms the sheriff is trying to tie her to. While there is no denying the spark he feels toward Olivia, he’s determined to stay as far away from her as possible because he’s not interesting in a relationship. Yet when Olivia becomes the target of a new string of vandalisms, his protective instincts kick in and he soon finds himself sharing his home with the woman he should be avoiding.
 
Ever After had it all; humor, heart, heat, charming characters, and a bevy of lovable yet quirky animals that occasionally stole the show.
 
Olivia was an easy character to like. She’s passionate, headstrong, not afraid to pursue what she wants but she’s also searching for a career that makes her happy. She’s just turned twenty-nine and she still hasn’t discovered what she wants to do with her life and the timeframe to accept her parents offer to pay for her to finish law school is starting to run out. Because she’s deviated from the career plan her parents had for her, she feels like she can’t get anything right, so she’s carrying around a bit of self doubt. There’s also an incident in her past that makes her question whether or not the mind blowing passion she feels for Pete is the right fit for her or just something that she’s diving head first into without thinking.
 
I was a bit hesitant about this one because Olivia is an animal rights activist. When a character is an activist, occasionally they come off a little bit too pushy for my liking although, with Olivia, thankfully this wasn’t the case. She was passionate about her cause, and I could feel the passion she carried for it, yet it was tastefully done.    
 
There was so much about Pete that I adored. He takes in a dog that’s flunked his K-9 training, he bakes muffins for the women’s shelter, and rescues kittens for the woman he’s just arrested. I mean, what’s not to love about him? He’s pretty much a good guy from top to bottom and has definitely made my list of lovable heroes.
 
Pete’s also a bit damaged. He’s carrying around a ton of guilt about an event he believes is his fault. It’s wrecked his marriage and has left him sort of emotionally capped off. He’s had a few one-night stands and he’s completely fine with not going down the happily ever after road again. Then Olivia literally falls into his arms and there’s no denying that he’s feeling something for her but he’s going to his best to fight it off because she’s a criminal and he’s trying to make detective.
 
The chemistry between Olivia and Pete was outstanding. There was so much sexual tension between the two of them you could cut it with a knife. I also enjoyed the conflict between them. Not only could you see external conflict come into play, but the internal conflict was there as well.
 
There’s a tiny bit of suspense thrown in the mix in the form of someone vandalizing Olivia’s car and home. I really enjoyed watching this play out and how it brought Pete and Olivia closer together.
 
This was my first time reading this series and even though it’s the third book in Rachel Lacey’s Love To The Rescue series, the book worked brilliantly as a standalone. All the pertinent information was provided without feeling like an info dump or bogging down the flow.
 
While I enjoyed Ever After, I did have a few problems with it. Pete’s divorce was a topic that came up a lot in the narrative and the failure of his marriage was one of the reasons he felt he couldn’t be with Olivia yet the topic wasn’t actually brought up with Olivia.  Also, the absolution of Pete’s guilt felt a bit abrupt, as though they needed to hurry up and deal with it because the book was coming to an end and they needed everything to be tied up in a nice little bow.
 
Overall, I enjoyed Ever After. There were a few problems but the book hooked me and I could not put it down. I will be looking forward to reading the first two books in this series.

Crazy Over You by Wendy Sparrow



She’s on the sheriff’s most wanted list.
 
Waking up with a naked woman holding a knife at his throat is just about the last thing Sheriff Travis Flynn expected. And the brother she’s looking for? A murderer. And dead. Probably. But the real shock comes when she insists she’s not a Lycan.
 
LeAnn Wilcox isn’t looking for love…especially not from some wolf in sheriff’s clothing. She operates on the other side of the law. Once she finds her brother-alive-she’ll get out of the pack’s territory and go back to her regular, normal, non-furry life of changing jobs and her name whenever her past closes in.
 
The cool, logical Sheriff has finally met his match, but LeAnn’s life is at stake if she won’t claim her place in the pack, especially once his control over the pack is challenged and her brother’s fate is questioned.
 
Title: Crazy Over You | Series: Taming the Pack # 3 | Author: Wendy Sparrow | Publisher: Entangled Select Otherworld |  Genre: Paranormal Romance | Rating: 4.5

You know when you’re on Amazon and the recommended books pop up? Well, I normally just scroll past them but Crazy Over You caught my eye. Seriously, that cover is eye-catching, there was no way I just scroll by. Once I read the blurb, I just had to one-click and I am so not disappointed.
 
Here’s what’s going on. Travis Flynn, sheriff and lycan, wakes to find a naked woman holding a knife to his throat. She’s looking for brother, Ross, who was a traitor to his kind and Travis believes he’s dead. What bothers Travis the most is the fact that this crazy naked woman is his scent match.
 
LeAnn just wants answers about her brother and then she’ll leave. She knows he’s alive, even if the sexy sheriff she’s attracted too claims her brother was killed by the pack. The longer she searches, the more irresistible Travis becomes. Although she knows that giving in isn’t an option. He’s a sheriff and she’s on the wrong side of the law and despite what Travis is saying, she’s not a Lycan and definitely not Alpha material.
 
Now that the pack is in crisis, and a murderer is on the loose, LeAnn realizes that she needs to as far away as possible although Travis has no intentions of letting his mate go.
 
Oh, I loved this book. So, it’s the third—and from what I can tell, finale—book in the Taming the Pack series by the wickedly talented Wendy Sparrow. When I went one-click happy, I had no idea that this was book three. There are a few things that I’m eager to find out, but this book worked as a standalone.
 
I adored Travis. He’s definitely an Alpha—it oozes off of him in waves without coming across as cocky and arrogant. He likes control and is a bit OCD, which I can totally relate to. When LeAnn comes barging into his life, he’s not really sure how to blend her out of control life with his tightly controlled ways so it was really fun watching him loosen up a bit.
 
I really liked LeAnn. She’s been through a lot in her life and is suffering PTSD but when push comes to shove, she’s going to come out swinging. She’s a tough cookie although there’s also a vulnerable side to her. She’s not really sure where she fits in and even though Travis is insisting that she’s his mate and now part of the pack, she still feels like an outside, especially since her bother was a murdering psychopath.  
 
Travis and LeAnn had brilliant chemistry. They really lit up the pages without tumbling into bed. The conflict between them also helped with the chemistry and I loved that Travis and LeAnn didn’t have an instant, easy relationship. They definitely had an instant lust and attraction but they had to work for their HEA.
 
The suspense was strong and steady without faltering or interfering with the romance. I was eager to see if Ross was still alive. LeAnn was able to track his scent but given the way Ross supposedly died, Travis and Jordan found it highly unlikely. While I had a feeling who was behind the trouble, it still kept me engaged.
 
I loved the Lycan world that Sparrow created while creating realistic characters. Even though they sprouted fur and a tail, they were realistically flawed and struggling with human problems and I loved it when an author has the ability to infuse both traits into paranormal characters.
 
This was my first time reading Wendy Sparrow but it will not be my last. It was also my first time reading Entangled’s Select Otherworld imprint and I’m eager to read more from them as well.
 
Overall, I loved Crazy Over You. I could not put it down and definitely had a book hangover from reading this until the wee hours of the morning.  The characters were engaging, the suspense riveting, the chemistry was off the charts, the plot was steady, and I was eager to see if LeAnn ever shifted.
 
I cannot wait to catch up on this series.

Dragon Fall by Katie MacAlister



YOU FLIRT WITH FIRE...
 
For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she's seen some extraordinary things. It's too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that's both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon's fire burns.
 
WHEN YOU DATE A DRAGON
 
Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul . . .
 
Title: Dragon Fall | Series: Dragon Falls #1| Author: Katie MacAlister | Publisher: Forever | Genre: Paranormal Romance | Source: Publisher | Rating:

I love Katie MacAlister although this is my first time venturing into her paranormal world, so I’m a bit behind with what’s going on with the dragon septs. While I had a few questions about this and that, I found that this was fairly easy to keep up with.
 
So, here’s what’s going on. Aoife witnessed her date being murdered then watched him return back to the land of the living, which, of course, earned her a free ride and a two year stay at a mental intuition, because honestly, that just kind of has whackado written all over it. She’s now been released and is ready to get back to her normal life only to find herself in possession of a talking demon dog named Jim and a sexy as sin black dragon who knows how to heat her up. Although things get a little tricky when a group of dragons decide to attack them and burn down her house. Now she finds herself aiding Kostya as they try to break the curse that has the dragons at each other’s throats.
 
This is the first dragon shifter book that I’ve read and I had to say when I think of dragon shifters, a dark, broody character like Kostya is definitely what springs to mind. Plus, there were like a million—okay, so not really that many—references to Tolkien and I’m such a Hobbit nerd that I totally squealed when I read them.
 
I really enjoyed Kostya—I do have a thing for broody men, so of course, I was going to enjoy him. Although I was a bit surprised at how well I liked him because he comes on a little strong and arsehaty at times. There’s been a lot going on with him. He was held captive for seven years, a woman done him dirty in hopes of being named his mate, and he’s got a group of dragons out to get him.  While he’s attracted to Aoife, he’s kind of capped off emotionally and while he wants her like a dog wants a bone and he says some super cute lovely dovey thing to her, he never really opens up.
 
If you’re ever battling demons or dragons or just having an off-kilter day, Aoife is the one you’d want by your side. She’s determined, unwavering, and no matter what’s she’s up against, she’s going to come out kicking. She also has the best one-liners that totally had me gigglesnorting. While she knew that Kostya needed to heal from his past wounds, she wasn’t going to let him off the hook and denied that they were destined to be together.
 
The pacing was steady although it was the suspense that kept the book going as Aoife and Kostya battled dragons and went in search of a way to break the curse. There were a few steamy moments, but the romance was lacking. It almost felt as though Kostya was forced into claiming Aoife as his mate because it was what the powers that be wanted rather than Kostya actually falling in love with her. So there a lot of lust just not a lot of falling head over heels in love.
 
Overall, while the book was filled with MacAlister’s witty banter and it was a fun little romp into the world she created, I gave it a 3.5-cup rating because the romance was lacking a bit and the ending was way too abrupt. Things were really getting interesting in the last few chapters then next thing I knew the book was over without really feeling complete. They did get their HEA but I think a few more chapters was needed just smooth out the ending so it didn’t feel like you hit a brick wall.

Garment of Shadows by Laurie King



Laurie R. King's "New York Times" bestselling novels of suspense featuring Mary Russell and her husband, Sherlock Holmes, comprise one of today's most acclaimed mystery series. Now, in their newest and most thrilling adventure, the couple is separated by a shocking circumstance in a perilous part of the world, each racing against time to prevent an explosive catastrophe that could clothe them both in shrouds.
 
In a strange room in Morocco, Mary Russell is trying to solve a pressing mystery: "Who am I?" She has awakened with shadows in her mind, blood on her hands, and soldiers pounding on the door. Out in the hivelike streets, she discovers herself strangely adept in the skills of the underworld, escaping through alleys and rooftops, picking pockets and locks. She is clothed like a man, and armed only with her wits and a scrap of paper containing a mysterious Arabic phrase. Overhead, warplanes pass ominously north.
 
Meanwhile, Holmes is pulled by two old friends and a distant relation into the growing war between France, Spain, and the Rif Revolt led by Emir Abd el-Krim--who may be a Robin Hood or a power mad tribesman. The shadows of war are drawing over the ancient city of Fez, and Holmes badly wants the wisdom and courage of his wife, whom he's learned, to his horror, has gone missing. As Holmes searches for her, and Russell searches for her"self, " each tries to crack deadly parallel puzzles before it's too late for them, for Africa, and for the peace of Europe.

I’m a huge fan of anything Sherlock Holmes so when I discovered Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes series I was as happy as a lark. I’ve read several books from this series and have loved them but I couldn’t really get into this one.
 
It wasn’t exactly bad—and I really enjoyed the amnesia plot device—but sadly, the plot had me yawning. I think it had to do with the fact that she put in so much of Morocco’s history and background that, to me, it felt a bit info dumpy and bogged down the plot.
 
Overall, while the plot did have a few twists in it, the book just didn’t keep my interest. I did manage to finish it but it was a real struggle.

Waiting on Wednesday {8}: White Tiger by Jennifer Ashley






"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
 
So, I read a snippet of White Tiger in the back of Bad Wolf and it looks so good. It offered enough just to get me hooked.

Tracker's End by Chantal Fernando




Tracker is everything I’ve ever wanted.
 
I see him. I’ve watched time change him.
 
I’ve been patient, but he still hasn’t noticed me. Not the way I want him to. The more time I spend with the MC, the more I understand.
 
When you want something, you have to take it. You have to fight for it.
 
And Tracker is more than worth fighting for…

Title: Tracker's Hell | Series: Wind Dragons MC #3| Author: Chantal Fernando | Publisher: Gallery Books | Release Date: August 11, 2015 | Genre: Contemporary MC Romance | Source: Publisher | Rating: 4.5

I’ve been waiting for Tracker’s book since I first met him and I have to say I am so not disappointed.
 
For those who have read book two (Arrow’s Hell), you know that Tracker and Lana sort of have a thing for each other although Tracker feels he’s not good enough for Lana. Plus, he’s got this on-again-off-again-shag-buddy thing going on with Allie, a daughter of a deceased Wind Dragon. Finally, Lana and Tracker decide to give in and give their relationship a go. Although it’s not always smooth sailing when you’re dating a man in a MC.
 
I have loved all three books in the Wind Dragons series and Tracker’s End, while just as good, was bit milder. It’s not nearly as gritty as the first two but it had just as much heat and heart.
 

This is totally how I pictured Tracker
Tracker doesn’t come on as strong—or dangerous—as Sin (book one, Dragon’s Lair) or Arrow although I wasn’t really expecting him too given what I learned from him in the previous books. He’s kind of quiet but he’s not one to make angry or go up against and you most certainly don’t mess with those he considers family. He’s definitely not a saint but he’s not nearly as much of a sinner as you would think. He really was an easy hero to fall for. Even when he had his broody moments, he was still endearing.
 
I really liked Lana. She’s quiet and not the type of person you would expect would be at home in the MC world, yet she fits in and doesn’t let anyone push her out.  She’s a good girl—it’s one of the reasons that Tracker has stayed away from her. Although there’s a side to Lana that’s she’s kept hidden and it kind of surprised me when it was revealed. Due to her father, she has some trust issues and it was interesting to see her let Tracker in.
 
The chemistry between Lana and Tracker was amazing. It sizzled off the pages and they were so good together. And I have to say some of their sex scenes were scorching, I’m really surprised the pages didn’t combust.
 
While there was some MC business in this novel there wasn’t nearly as much as there was in the previous books. This book seemed to focus on the members of club and I really enjoyed that. You still get that MC feel but it’s more character driven.
 
So, the book is told mainly from Lana’s POV but occasionally we’re graced with a few pages from Tracker’s POV and I loved knowing what he was thinking.
 
What I love about this series is that it includes what’s happening with the characters of the previous books. And I really liked seeing how Faye (book one) and Anna (book two) and were getting along in the Wind Dragons world.
 
Overall, I loved Tracker’s End and could not put it down. The romance was spot on, the characters were mind blowing, and the plot was engaging.
 
I cannot wait for the next book, which I believe will be Rake’s.
