Review ~ Wolf's Fall (Alpha Pack, #6) by J.D. Tyler

By : Heather Coulter




A top secret team of wolf shifters, the Alpha Pack are former Navy SEALS that use their Psy powers to take on the world’s greatest predators. But while each member is loyal to the pack, it can be hard to deny the call of desire…

Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn’t sure he’s fit to lead—especially when he meets the one woman he can’t claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire. 

Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant—if only he’d let it. But Calla isn’t about to give up on her mate without a fight.

Time is running out, not only for Nick to claim his mate, but for Calla and her coven. A vampire war is on the horizon, one the Alpha Pack can’t hope to win if their leader can’t pull himself back from the abyss…
Be sure to first read Cole's Redemption...Nick's experiences largely carry over into Wolf's Fall.

I was overall disappointed with this book. It should have been the strongest story, since it was the Alpha Pack commander, Nick Westfall's, story. However, I felt that the trauma he suffered was not given the attention it deserved - it was too quickly brushed aside.

I liked Vampire princess, Calla Shaw's, character - her strength and willingness to love a man she knew that she may never be able to claim was amazing.

With four more stories coming soon...I hope that the series can get back to the brilliance I saw in the beginning.

Review ~ Not Quite Forever (Not Quite #4) by Catherine Bybee

By : Heather Coulter
The touching and heartwarming fourth novel in the wildly popular Not Quite series from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.

Romance author Dakota Laurens believes that happily-ever-afters exist only between the covers of her sexy novels. But to her surprise, she finds a real-life hero when she meets a handsome emergency room doctor. The outspoken author feels an instant and intense attraction to Dr. Walt Eddy, and the feeling is mutual. When the globetrotting doctor pulls a disappearing act on Dakota, she’s prepared to write him off…until fate brings a blindsiding twist to her story.

Still scarred from a past tragedy, Walt may have disappeared on Dakota, but now he’s determined to win her back. For the first time in years, he knows he’s ready for a new chance at love. Yet between Dakota’s doubts and two sets of meddling parents, can the once-blissful couple finally create the bright, loving future they desperately want?
Romance author, Dakota Laurens, meets sexy emergency room doctor, Walter Eddy III, when the hotel double-booked them in the same conference room. These two individuals are not your typical starry-eyed lovers. Dakota thinks HEA only exists on paper and Walt has some commitment issues.

As expected the story progresses quickly, writing flows evenly and evolves naturally. The most impressive thing was how remarkably she handled Dakota’s forgiveness of Walt’s abandonment – the delivers it with exactness.

Not sure which character's story is next...but it will be on my tbr list.

Review ~ Razed (Barnes Brothers, #2) by Shiloh Walker

By : Heather Coulter
Tattoo artist Keelie Jessup can handle that someone else has claimed the man of her dreams. She’s just not pleased with her remaining options…

Keelie doesn’t believe in the “perfect man.” But the men who are worth the trouble are usually taken—like her business partner Zach Barnes. After a string of bad luck and the lost chance with Zach, Keelie decides that maybe flying solo—and living with suppressed desires—is the key to happiness.

As a photographer, Zane Barnes has an eye for the human form, and his eyes can’t get enough of Keelie’s curves. Unfortunately, Keelie is like most women—always fawning over his little brother, Zach. Zane is about ready to give up, but then a few stolen moments at his brother's wedding have him thinking maybe there's a chance there after all. Now he just has to prove that the perfect man does exist...for her.
Keelie Jessup first appeared as the 'villain' in the series opener, Wrecked. Lucky for us readers Keelie failed in her attempt to breakup Abigale Applegate and Zach Barnes.

Zane, the eldest Barnes brother, is an oddity - in the of best ways. His determination to love Keelie is apparent in every word written about him. I love that his is clumsy, yet confident. And those sexy glasses...Yum!

Their scenes are written with precision - generating heat and passion!!!
"Locked together with him, her breathe caught, hitched -- and the bliss exploded through her, flooding her every pore, overtaking her entire being."
Long-time fan of this author, I love that she ventures into any/all genres. Her ability to take ordinary individuals and make them into extraordinary couples - never disappoints.

I will say the Zach and Zane names drove me crazy; the names were to similar - keeping them straight was impossible. I had to really concentrate on which was in the current scene.

Review + Giveaway ~ Undesired Lust (Reckless Beat, #3) by Eden Summers

By : Heather Coulter
They used to be the perfect team. 

Two years ago, songstress Sidney Higgins ruined her life by sleeping with not one, but two of the famous Reckless Beat men, Mason Lynch and Sean Taiden. Their night of intimate celebration turned into a worldwide sensation when the video Mason vowed to keep private was uploaded to the internet, destroying her squeaky-clean reputation and turning the world against her. Now she’s broken and left without hope, trying to find the one thing that can get her back on her feet.

A mistake neither one of them is willing to forgive. 

When the sex tape went viral and his best friends held him accountable, Mason bore the stigma of asshole with pride. Now, bitterness has destroyed him, driving away his muse and making him worthless in the industry he loves. There’s only one option left to reclaim his creativity, but that would mean collaborating with a woman who wants to castrate him with a plastic knife.

A palpable chemistry even hate can’t diminish. 

Forced to work together, neither one of them is prepared for the undesired lust which immediately takes hold. The lies fade away, exposing the truth; however, it also awakens a threat from their past. The person responsible for tearing them apart is back to ensure they don’t rekindle a spark. With their safety in the balance, Sidney and Mason need to determine what they’re willing to risk to reclaim a relationship they wish they’d never lost.

Threesome, Sex Tape, Betrayal, and Deception -- Eden Summers brings all these elements and more together for a platinum release. Best of all it is all unveiled in a realistic way. 

With so many rock star books released I enjoy her ability to provide readers with unique storylines. With the history written for these characters a HEA seems impossible, but I knew this author would not neglect her readers. 

I highly urge contemporary and erotic romance fans to read this book! It is a satisfying, invigorating, sexy and astoundingly great read!!!

Review ~ One in a Million (Lucky Harbor #12) by Jill Shalvis

By : Heather Coulter

As the brains behind wedding site TyingTheKnot.com, Callie sees it all: from the ring to the dress, the smiles . . . to the tears. It's that last part that keeps her single and not looking. Getting left at the altar will do that to a girl. But when Callie returns to her old hometown, she finds that her sweet high school crush is sexier than ever. And he makes it hard to remember why she's sworn off love . . .

Tanner is a deep-sea diver with a wild, adrenaline-junkie past—and now his teenage son is back in his life. How can Tanner be a role model when he's still paying for his own mistakes? It's hard enough that gorgeous Callie has appeared in town like a beautiful dream, challenging his best-laid plans to keep his heart on lockdown. Though there's something about being around her again that makes him feel like he can be the man she—and his son—deserve. Little Lucky Harbor holds their past; can it hold a beautiful new future?
“And then he proceeded to kiss the living daylights out of her, a hot, wet, deep kiss that was good. So very good.”
I tried to savor this since story it is the final book in the Lucky Harbor series and I am not ready to let these fantastic characters go. However, in typical Jill Shalvis style I was immediate swept into their courtship and my need (it’s an addiction really) to witness their HEA…I could not put it down.

I enjoyed the romance between Callie and Tanner. They are not your typical eyes-meet, instant love, feel-good couple – it is the challenges they faced/face that make them worth the read.

DoughnutWarning: If you are a doughnut lover (like this reader) I recommend a quick trip to the bakery before you start this book..

Review ~ Evidence of Passion (Shadow Agents #7) by Cynthia Eden

By : Heather Coulter
Friends become endangered lovers in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden's Shadow Agents: Guts and Glory miniseries

Trusting the wrong man had almost cost EOD agent Rachel Mancini her life. Now, years later, the killer's back to make the hit he missed. But he won't succeed while Rachel's gorgeous partner, Dylan Foxx, is on the case. He's been the sexy ex-lawyer's friend for years and will do anything to keep her safe. And though it could prove fatal, he wants her in his arms...and his bed.

But first he has to stop the madman obsessed with Rachel. Ex-SEAL Dylan has the skills and determination to meet every danger the twisted assassin can unleash. A relationship has never had a place in his life...until he senses Rachel wants him as badly as he wants her.
Adam Wright’s betrayal -
“You’re mine,” he told her. His hands lowered to his sides. “Either mine to kill or mine to love. The choice is all on me…I knew it from the beginning.”
leads Rachel Mancini reluctantly into the protective arms of Dylan Foxx.
“I’m going to take care of you,” Dylan promised her. “We’re the good guys. We’re going to keep you safe.” A pause. “I’m going to keep you safe.”
Cynthia Eden dialogue and writing style, regardless of genre, always keep this reader intrigued. This is the first book in The Shadow Agents: Guts and Glory line that I have read; each is stand alone. Dylan is everything a heroine needs – sexy, protective, and 100% devoted. I loved his intimation tactics…they always brought a smile to my face. Rachel complements his character perfectly. Considering she has a killer obsessed with her I expected a meeker woman – someone in need of fortification. Instead Ms. Eden gave us an independent survivor who stands beside (or in front of) her hero.

I have added the other installments to my TBR…and if you like romantic suspense I recommend this line of Harlequin Intrigue.

Review ~ The Promise (Thunder Point #5) by Robyn Carr

By : Heather Coulter
#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love 

Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small Oregon community of Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced the widowed doctor and father of two, his children are thriving, and Scott knows it's time to move on from his loss. But as the town's only doctor, the dating scene is awkward. That is, until a stunning physician's assistant applies for a job at his clinic. 

Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She's already been burned by a man with kids, and she's come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she's used to, Peyton is surprisingly eager to accept…at least for now. She's willing to stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options. 

Scott and Peyton know the arrangement is temporary—it isn't enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.
I was a huge fan of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and that fandom has now extended to Thunder Point.

Ms. Carr creates phenomenal characters that make each return to Thunder Point an adventure. Scott Grant's character is a sexy doctor, but he was made even more attractive by his devotion to his children. However, I was sightly annoyed by Peyton's non-stop comparisons/expectations. I loved her extended family!

The most impressive part of this story was how the author was able to squeeze a complete courtship into a short period of time (the trial period).

Just an FYI, I read this book out-of-order - I read The Homecoming before this one. It was not a problem just wanted to state that for the record.
