Blood Brothers by Susan Arden

Title:   Blood Brothers (Rocky Mountain Shifters #2)
Author:  Susan Arden
Genre:  Werewolves, Vampire, Ex-military
Publication Date:  September 22, 2013
Publisher:    Decadent Publishing
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.

As wolf shifters, Tristen and Fin’s loyalty knows no bounds. Yet these close shifters lack the ability to speak from the heart. This pervasive silence leaves them without the means to overcome problems plaguing their relationship. Tristen suffers from PTSD and refuses Fin’s suggestions for help. Fin becomes a shifter of fewer and fewer words. As lovers, they meet each other’s beta needs until Fin craves a rougher edge. A kinky edge.

Santo, another ex-soldier and vampire is looking for work, a place to belong after he swears off bloodsucking, given his battlefield experiences. Running security for the head of the local shifter’s council seems perfect. Cue Fin and Tristen to help.

Now, the three come together for a night of kink, learning that sex can be a means to discover deeper desires. Fin and Tristen must decide if they will stay together, or if sex with a seductive vampire is the doorway to the end.

Caution: This tale will tantalize, causing flaming fantasies to the point of searing. Be ready to sweat.

  Fin watched as Santo lifted his jacket off the seat of the booth, and extracted an envelope. He slid it across the table to Tris. “My references.”

As a wolf shifter, Santo had lost that sensual allure that had captivated Fin. He was still a powerfully built man, but the fluid, seductive qualities that had fascinated him originally were gone. The wolf was earthy while the vampire was air.

Fin swung his gaze to his partner. Tris’s skin glowed and he appeared pumped, ready for action. Excitement lashed around Fin’s chest. Pulled tight. Tristen was fire, burning and blazing, his heat so consuming it was hard to be next to him without being overtaken and incinerated. It became easy to acquiesce to Tris’s suggestions.

It was also the reason Fin wanted to have a third for one session. Someone who’d make Tristen understand his needs that typically got shoved aside as his lover fucked him every which way except what he needed. Now it was like being in a home pack, a very cagey clan that made him think of running up the valley and along the southern range, and he’d be low man. He had no desire to be a wolf tonight. He wanted seduction in his human form.

What he wanted was candlelight, hot oil, and chilled vodka shots while they explored each other’s bodies. 

He glanced at his partner and did a double-take. Tristen casually rubbed his hands down the front of his body, over his very prominent hard-on, and a growl worked up his throat as he smiled that mesmerizing smile of his at Santo. Fin didn’t need to be a mind reader to know Tristen liked what he saw. Goddammit. His lover was actually excited. Now the condom might very well be on the other dick.

 Without another thought, he stroked downward along Tristen’s crotch and sure enough, he was ragingly rigid. The man rocked against his fingers, their eyes snapping together. Fin didn’t know if he should laugh or punch Tristen.
“Now who’s ready and willing?” Fin asked dryly.

Wolf At His Door (Rune Trilogy) by Adrian Lilly

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP)

Wow! I was really taken by surprise by this book. Judging by the description, I was expecting huggable, lovable, Twilight werewolves. Nope!! Not in the least. I freakin' adored this book from start to finish.

I loved the combination of action, suspense, thriller, just a tad of romance. Adrian pulls in the reader in the opening prologue and keeps them sitting on the edge of their seat throughout the entire story! It was so sad but yet so good. Definitely cannot wait until book 2!

I LOVED in the interactions between Alec and Jared, their back n' forth banter which only added to the tension between the two of them.

The bittersweet relationship between Lucy and Rene; couldn't help by detect underlying racism in how the Rune parents treated Rene - or lack of.

I think this book would make a very good movie!

More Than This by Jay McLean



In one night my fairytale ended. Or it may have begun. This is my story of friendship and love, heartbreak and desire, and the strength to show weakness.

One night I met a girl. A sad and broken girl, but one more beautiful than any other. She laughed through her sadness, while I loved through her heartbreak.

*This is our story of a maybe ever after.*

He was right. It made no difference whether it was 6 months or 6 years.

I couldn’t undo what had been done. I couldn’t change the future.

I couldn’t even predict it.

It was one night.

One night when everything changed.

It was so much more than just the betrayal.

It was the Tragedy.

The Deaths.

The Murders.

But it was also that feeling.

The feeling of falling.
