Naomi -O’Malley ***COVER REVEAL***

Cover Reveal: Naomi by Mya O’Malley

We are proud to present the cover for Naomi by Mya O’Malley, scheduled to release on March 30th! This paranormal romance is the sequel to Maggie, which Mya released in August 2016.

 

Naomi by Mya O’Malley

Naomi has a knack for attracting attention from ethereal beings—whether she wants it or not. Newly engaged to her sexy neighbor, Bryce, she has little time to celebrate and plan for her upcoming wedding, because no sooner does she wrap up a heartbreaking cold case than she finds herself right back where she started, searching for answers alongside ghostly spirits.

This time, however, Naomi learns that things are not what they seem as a man from her past quickly becomes her worst nightmare. If she’s not careful, this man might crush her hopes and dreams forever as he proves to be her most difficult opponent yet.

Still, Naomi tries to focus on her relationship with Bryce. Can it withstand head games and cruel intentions? Naomi makes it her mission to keep Bryce and his daughter safe from harm, but will true love be tough enough to withstand her adversaries?

Naomi must keep her eyes wide open and question everything— and everyone—in order to survive.

 

Excerpt:

Memories of the not so distant past slammed Naomi. Images of Ryan and Maggie . . .

Maggie.

The ghost that had all but consumed her. Maggie had reached out to Naomi, demanding peace. Naomi admitted to herself that she had become obsessed at that time in her life. Preoccupied with putting both Maggie and Ryan to rest. Luckily, Bryce was loyal and patient to the core during the first hectic months of their new relationship.

What would he say now, knowing that a spirit was back? Knowing that this time it wasn’t the sweet spirit of a girl named Maggie or a quirky, kindhearted man that needed her help?

This time it was worse, far worse.

This time the spirit was unsettled, tortured—and to make matters even daunting . . .

He was her ex-boyfriend.

Thomas’ Heart (Judgement of the Six Companion Series Book 4) – Melissa Haag

thomas-heart-melissa-haag

blurb

Thomas’ race is dying. To protect those left, the Elders create a safe haven. However, the safety of their sanctuary is threatened by the cause of their kind’s decline. A human. But, she’s not like the rest; and despite his hatred of humans, Thomas wants her for his own.

When females start dying while trying to reach safety, Thomas realizes it’s no longer just humans who pose a threat, but desperate males. Thomas must secure his place at Charlene’s side as leader of sanctuary, or everything they’ve worked together to build will crumble, and any hope of a future for Thomas’s race will die.

Blog Images

T’s Thoughts!

Thomas…We’ve known about Thomas since book 1. He’s the pack leader and his wife Charlene is the heart and soul of the pack, even though she’s human. In (Un)Bidden we learned how they met and the things that happened through her eyes, and in this one, we get in his head. And like with the other books in her series, the companion books follow closely with the Jot6 book, BUT not everything is as the women thought. Also, huge difference in this book is we are getting a lot of background information on the werewolves themselves and the plot overall is THICKENING like WHOA!

I’m not sure what all to say because these characters are beginning to feel like family to me. If you count all the books there are now 9 of them. And Thomas and Charlene factor in EVERY-SINGLE-ONE. So, the world is growing and we’re being fed information gradually until now knowing what I know so far (which isn’t much because it’s only the next book, (Dis)Content), things are about to come to a head. This makes me both anxious and fearful of what’s coming.

Thomas isn’t who I thought he’d be. I really was surprised by his side of things and I was doubly surprised by the amount of restraint he showed considering they didn’t really have as ‘civil’ a pack as there is now. At least by human standards. But he stayed the course and true to himself and I loved watching him go from the foundation of what a good leader SHOULD be to being a great leader. I also liked that we could get some in Grey’s head. I really do like that elder.

I’m going to leave you with a little bit of advice, since I’ve already posted a huge wall of text. Read the books together. It makes the reading experience so full and rich. Or read Jot6 book 1 and then its companion, then Jot6 book 2 and then its companion. But don’t read all of the Jot6 books, THEN start on the companions. You could…but you’d miss out just how awesome they are together.

A’s Thoughts!

Hey guys! A here with my thoughts on Thomas’ Heart by Melissa Haag. This is the 4th book in the Judgment of the Six companion Novels,  and It’s even more amazing than the last one (which I don’t even know how that’s possible!)

This is so much more than an alternative POV. One of my absolute favorite things about these stories is how much they add to the women’s books. I love a good strong heroine,  but in alternate POVs their men can sometimes come off looking weak by comparison. The men in these books keep their strength and “alphaness”  because they have so much knowledge the Judgments don’t.

Thomas’ story has SUCH a different feel from Charlene’s. It’s a bit darker and more intense. It in no way feels like the same book…… And I LOVED it! There are some revelations in this book that will knock your socks off. 

If you’re someone who doesn’t like to “waste your money” on alternative POV books, this is a series that will make you eat your words! Melissa does a phenomenal job of making the books their own story and yet she somehow manages to make them follow the original plot as well. There’s no way I could give this one anything less than 🌮🌮🌮🌮🌮

Warrior (Relentless Series Book 4) – Karen Lynch

warrior karen lynch

blurb

The warrior has finally met his match.

Nikolas Danshov is the Mohiri’s finest warrior, fearless and lethal with any weapon. For almost two hundred years, he has devoted his life to keeping humans safe from the demons that walk the earth. Revered by his people, he is a legend in his own time, a warrior undefeated in battle, and prepared for anything. Until her.

On a routine job in Maine, a twist of fate brings Nikolas face-to-face with the one person he had never expected to meet – his mate. Sara Grey is unlike anyone he’s ever met. Beautiful and fiery, she ignites his desire, while her innocence and vulnerability awaken a fierce protectiveness in him. Now all he can think of is keeping his mate safe from the dangers that hunt her, even if she fights him at every turn.

You know Sara’s story. Now read it again, through the eyes of her warrior.

Blog Images

T. Here –

If you’ve read the Relentless Series, you know that it is told from Sara’s perspective. She’s a 17yo girl (who turns 18 in the series) and she’s used to the fact that there are all sorts of creatures living in this world, not just those that humans believe there to be. She doesn’t understand her place in it, and all that changes in that series. She has an, oftentimes, mysterious and broody protector and mate in Nikolas. This book is all of those books in his point-of-view.

You’ll get a few other side characters in this story that you don’t really get in the other, but not many, and you really need to know your stuff in the other series or several things will leave you scratching your head here. So, if you read this, make sure that you brushed up on the other books first, or read them in tandem with one another. Overall I enjoyed this book and I think that Ms. Lynch did a great job at creating this book without it feeling like a rewrite. I would recommend this book, I think it adds to the series and rounds it out really well.

 

A. Here –

We’ve all had this happen…..your best friend goes and sees a movie and comes back telling you how AMAZING the movie was….the next week she won’t shut up about it, and repeatedly begs you to go see it….so you do…..but then you’re just kinda like……Meh. Unfortunately that is what happened to me with the release of Warrior. I don’t think there was anything wrong with the story itself, but more likely that I was SO EXCITED about it that I over hyped it to myself.

If you’re reading and expecting a bunch of new content, you will be disappointed. That’s not what this book is about. There are a few new things peppered in Warrior, but for the most part it is legitimately just an alternative POV. 

I was surprised at how different Nikolas was from Sara’s perception of him as well as how he sees her. It was cool to finally see Sara as just a strong fiesty warrior, and realize that he saw her that way long before she saw herself that way. There is a new ending in Nikolas’ story that is absolutely adorable. It will give you all the feels. The story definitely didn’t answer all my questions….I can’t wait for novellas and other characters’ stories to see if we ever get all the answers.

Overall I enjoyed the story, but I was left feeling a little disenchanted with Warrior. (As I said before this may be entirelymy own fault)…..but for that reason… I can only give it 🌮🌮🌮🍕

The Destined (Dreamland Series Book 3) – E.J. Mellow ***RELEASE DAY BLITZ***

the-destined-ej-mellow

blurb

I searched for you in the stars tonight.
But I found none
that burned as bright as you.

—Part of a letter from Dev to Molly

With the loss of Terra’s greatest weapon, the war against darkness escalates rapidly, and time is on no one’s side. While Dev struggles to keep his home and hope alive, Molly and Rae find themselves forced to confront a desperately kept secret and quickly learn that a life-altering sacrifice is the asking price to restore order.

Nightmares, betrayal, the fate of two worlds, and one man’s hunger for vengeance lead Molly down a twisted and dark path she fears she might never come back from. Cornered into making a heart-wrenching decision, Molly teeters between deliverance and damnation. Who is worth saving most—a nation or the one she loves?

From Award Winning author, E.J. Mellow, comes the breathtaking conclusion of The Dreamland Series. A story that will take you on a spine-tingling and gripping ride through self-sacrifice, the true power of love, and the importance of friendship.

Blog Images

We’ve known Dev and Molly. Ever since she started dreaming and this larger than life dream man became part of her reality, we’ve known them. Our hearts soared with them and broke with them. And after the ending of The Divide, I was nervous for what was in store for these two, Earth, and Terra.

I will say that my heart was broken in the start of this book. It was raw and painful. I wanted to climb in bed and not get out. Then when the answer to all our prayers came, I BAWLED. Like BAWLED. It hurt me. Though I know it was what would really make everyone happiest especially those parties directly involved, my heart shattered. Then we were introduced to a new character, one that wasn’t well loved by most, but became so crucial by the end. UGH! ANOTHER bawling jag. But again, it was best for all involved and all ended well, but STILL. I had to put this book down a couple of times and get over myself. But wow. What a finish to the series!

Again, Ms. Mellow does NOT dole out the mellow feelings. She catapults you straight to the heavens ONLY to plummet you to the depths of Hades. But I’ll tell you it’s worth every moment of the ride. Her world building is non-stop. Most stop building it once they’ve brought the characters into it, but we were still learning things about this world up until the last chapter. Her characters breathe life into the story and it makes me wish I could call Becca and see how everyone’s doing. So, yeah, the series is done, BUY THEM ALL and INHALE them. You won’t regret it. You’ll just snort to yourself about how could she call herself “mellow”, when reading her books leaves you feeling anything but.

Emmitt’s Treasure (A Judgement of the Six Companion Series Book 2) – Melissa Haag

emmitt's treasure melissa haag

blurb

After six years away from his pack, Emmitt realizes he has no idea what he wants from life. His parents want him to lead the pack, and the Elders expect him to further integrate his people into human society. His reluctance to take on the demanding responsibility of leadership has him dragging his feet to return home.

Finding his Mate changes everything. Michelle’s shy and beautiful and on the run. She needs somewhere to stay and someone to take care of her. Suddenly, responsibility doesn’t seem like such a burden to Emmitt. He’ll do whatever it takes to earn her trust and keep her safe…even from one of his own kind.

Note: This is book 2 of the Judgement of the Six Companion series. If you haven’t read the Judgement of the Six series yet, check out Hope(less) for free!

Blog Images

This is the companion novel to (Mis)Fortune, you can find my review for that here. We know from that book that Emmitt is patient and wonderfully kind with Michelle and her two younger brothers. We also know that he’s fiercely loyal and willing to do anything to make sure she feels safe, even if that means keeping himself away from her. All of that rings true in this one too. And all those swoon-worthy moments from (Mis)Fortune are explained here, and you’d think with that explanation that they would be less swoon-worthy. Not so, my friend…not so. In this we see his motivations, his fears, his insecurities, and his struggles. These are things hinted at in (Mis)Fortune. We also get more history of the compound and of others in the pack. And we get more Jim. But we find out that Jim is in training…of what, I won’t say. Just know that I love Jim.

If you’re afraid that reading the same story from a different POV would be tedious and boring, worry not with this. I know there are quite a few POV companion stories that are nothing more than an exact retelling with no new information. This isn’t one of those. It isn’t as varied as some others that I’d read, but that works with this story.

Ms. Haag takes this story and makes it bolder, richer, and more dynamic. Her ability to write the story is growing through this series. Don’t get me wrong, she’s talented from the beginning. She’s just honing her craft, as all good storytellers should. So, you should know this by now…Read this book. FIRST, read Hope(Less), Clay’s Hope, and (Mis)Fortune) before reading this. THEN read the rest of the series. You won’t regret it.
