Review: Fanning the Flames

Title: Fanning the Flames

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: April 21st, 2020

Goodreads Summary:

He’s trying to save the world….and she’s saving him.

Tytus
Family can be a pain in the ass. Even more so when the only blood relative I have left is a brother intent on destroying the world as punishment for a millennia of imprisonment.
Da, one can say I need to be razor-focused in order to figure out what zmeu magic he’s unleashed and how to fix it.
Imagine my surprise when my travels to my ancestral home, deep in the Carpathian Mountains, are disturbed by a doe-eyed witch as intriguing as she is broken.
I don’t have time for fixing her. I need to fix everything else, first. Top of the list being myself and these wounds that won’t heal. The last thing I need is to get dragged into her quest for redemption…. yet somehow I find myself doing just that. And the worst part? I kind of like being her knight in shining armour.

Fiona
When you’ve been used, bruised and battered as I am, you stop trusting people real fast. Especially supernatural beings who have more power in their pinky than I do in my entire being.
I don’t trust humans, and I sure as hell don’t trust Tytus. He’s a zmeu, and despite those stormy eyes that see right through me, I’m fully aware he’s only in this quest for himself. But I’m hoping I can get something out of it, too. Something to save my soul, and maybe cut this curse I feel dragging me down to the depths of Hell itself.
Only, I’m learning Tytus doesn’t take kindly to being told half truths. Nor to having his charms ignored. And when he turns the full power of his zmeu seduction onto me, I don’t stand a chance. Because the most dangerous thing of all? He’s making me hope for a future that’ll never be.

My Review:

What a fun ride this was! I love the Moonlight Rogues series so much, so when I knew there was going to be a spinoff with dragons, I was so excited!

Tytus was all sorts of swoon and with him being a dragon, that had me right away! Fiona was also a breath of fresh air! She didn’t Tytus, yet chose to be him with him because she wanted to, not because she needed protection. And their romance scenes were on fire, literally! I need to be fanned after that!

Oh boy, we also get to see glimpses of my boy, Declan! I need more of him in my life! Whitewolf has created a really cool world here with action, intrigue, twists, and emotions! Can’t wait for book 2!

Book Cover.jpg

Last to Love (Moonlight Rogues #4)

Expected Publication Date: December 31st, 2019

Genre: Paranormal/ Shapeshifter Romance

He’s the last one standing… So they sent the best one to break him.

Lucas

Love is for fools. I left all that wuss shit behind, and no fairy-like, smiling godmother will change my mind. I’ve got enough on my mind with a beta pushing my buttons and a town to keep safe. Never mind these urges inside me surfacing again, when I thought I’d buried them for good.

My wolves are falling in amore like bowling pins, and no amount of reasoning will make them stop. Now the third one’s gone over the moon, and they all expect me to be the last to love.

Only, they’ve got another thing coming. ‘Cause the only way I’m falling in love? Is over my dead body.

Monica

One more job, they said. One tiny thing I have to do, to bring the prodigal son back home in the warm arms of his beloved family. They said it would be easy. They gave me all the tools. But the minute I’m facing Lucas, I know all those plans have just failed. Burned, thrown out the window, type of failed. And I fully expect he’ll throw me out on my ass. So why is it he’s suddenly more interested in getting me in bed, rather than exiled? And what happens when I fall for it, but it’s too late to stop the events I’ve set into motion?

*Book IV in a paranormal shifter series filled with werewolves of all kinds, feisty females who stand up to them, and enough suspense to make it interesting. Can be read as a standalone for the romance, but for a better experience it’s suggested you read the full series first.*

Excerpt

Monica

Damn it, but they could have warned me what to expect!

Luciano Conti is nothing like I pictured. He’s gorgeous, and fine as hell, sure. But he’s also cold, and unsettling. And in control. I didn’t miss the way his wolf responded, that flash of interest quickly squashed as soon as he realized who I am – nor did I miss the pack outside of here. Clearly, I’ve walked in the middle of a warzone.

The question is, how much more chaos can I cause before Luciano – or Lucas, as he calls himself now – throws me out of here? I bite my lower lip, noticing his gaze drop to it. My instructions were clear. Ruin the life he built here, and force him to come back home. If I do, I’d be free, and Alessandro Conti would ensure it.

Only problem is, as I’m standing opposite Luciano, it takes all my will to ignore the hum of electricity between us. I’ve always been the one in control – always. And yet his dark gaze does something to my insides that makes me feel almost…shy.

Basta! Don’t be a fool.

In an effort to distract myself, I look around. “You’ve done well for yourself, Luciano. Your parents will be proud.”

A noise escapes him, and I meet his unnerving gaze just in time to catch a glimpse of amusement. Then he schools his expression once more. I’ve known men who are good at that, but he makes it into an art. He is a piece of art.

Focus…

“What was so funny?” He clearly doesn’t like my question. But it’s his words that unsettle me more.

“What’s funny, cara, is you keep mentioning parents as if I have two of them. My mother died years ago. Matter of fact, she committed suicide after my brother died in a failed deal – all thanks to my father. But surely Alessandro Conti told you all this, before sending you into the wolf’s den?”

His grin is nothing short of predatory. And that dangerous glint in his onyx eyes causes a low tremor to start in me.

Merda! I’ve been had, that’s for sure. Only question is, how the heck do I get out of this now?

Will be available on Amazon December 31st!

Review: Atrox

Title: Atrox

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: August 21st, 2019

B6B8987A-465B-4B67-A6C3-C0C59E63C749

Goodreads Summary:

He used to scoff at fate…

A long time ago, he was ruler among gods. Fallen, he was exiled, sent to oversee the underworld. Until a mage on Earth caught his interest, and their friendship got him involved with the one he was always meant to protect – the Lady of the Lake.

He used to scoff at love….

With Vivienne safe in Sébastien’s embrace, Atrox sheds the last of his protector skin, and says goodbye to his alter, Alistair, for good. Something else has drawn his attention, and it’s got nothing to do with keeping watch from afar. Rather, it’s got everything to do with getting closer than ever before.

…until he falls in the most final trap of all.

Atrox’s last adventure leads him to the kingdom of the Fae, as he seeks the one who stole his heart – the Fae heiress, Catriona. But her aging father is not keen on letting one of his worst enemies win over his daughter. Without mercy, he sets up a trap: seven labours, each harder than the next. If Atrox wins them all, he can plead his case to Catriona herself. And if he loses…he faces death itself.

My Review:

Atrox, man! I’ve been waiting for this boy’s story for a while and it did not disappoint! I’m a big fan of quest type things and Atrox’s journey was packed with emotion, hardships, and love. This story wasn’t just about Atrox’s love for Catriona, it was one about his own growth and discovering himself. But yes, there was some excellent swoon as well!

Review: Third to Tumble

Title: Third to Tumble

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: June 21st, 2019

A021A7C8-50CD-462D-B398-E7668A6F8E22

Goodreads Summary:

Rules are meant to be broken… Unless breaking them tears an entire family apart.

Finn

I’m the cool headed one. The rule-follower. The non-hormonal-raging wolf.

This pack needs someone like me. We’ve fought creatures of the night, psychotic families and dealt with magic and the unbelievable. We’re all thick as thieves, and the worst thing that could happen is getting kicked out of this pack.

Which is why breaking rules is not my thing.

So why does Elle make me want to throw it all away?

And why is it my stupid, idiotic wolf does exactly that…before I’ve even had a taste of her lips?

Now we’ve got more on our hands than a love story with bad timing. Cause the shite about to go down in Rockland Creek has just hit boiling point – and I’m the catalyst.

Elle

He barges in like he owns my destiny, and yeah it’s hot as sin. That Irish accent, those gorgeous eyes, it’d be easy to fall for the whole package.

Only I don’t. I may look as sweet as the baked goods I sell, but there are thorns under this armor Finn has no idea about. Things he cannot know about, or I’ll end up in the looney bin like my mom. And then things get really complicated when Tytus is added to the mix, telling me stories I can’t believe. They’re fable, myths….but before long I’m spiraling into a web so thick I don’t know which way is up. And when the one person I can trust is hunted by a demon from his past, I’m left to rely on myself to figure it out. But what if I make the wrong choice?

My review:

The one thing I can always trust in this series is that I’m going to love the two leads, and love them I did! Finn and his wolf were awesome and Elle has got to be my favorite girl so far!

I felt this book was really, really packed with even more emotion, swoon, character growth, and action compared to the other ones! I really felt for Elle and her inner struggles. I also seriously loved seeing the old gang pop up on the pages, and there are some incredibly interesting things that go down in this one!

I always love the author’s writing, and I feel like she could write instructions on how to bake a cake and it would read amazing! Yes, this book does have romance but it has so much more with wonderful world building and magic! Can’t wait for Lucas’s story next!

Avalon Dreams Character Interview

IMG-0052 (1).JPG

1553098489

“It was impossible they had met before – of that she was certain. Yet his hold on her was undisputable, an irrational pull to the utmost recesses of her soul.”

Vivienne du Lac has everything she could wish for – a normal, peaceful life, a good job, cushy nest egg, and a semi-social nightlife. The only problem? She’s clueless to being the reincarnation of the Lady of the Lake, mythical sorceress from King Arthur’s time, and Merlin’s apprentice.

Sebastien Dubois is the guy you wouldn’t take home to mom and dad. He’s the one you jump off on a motorcycle with, to ride into the sunset. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling from the start – but there’s more to the tall, dark and handsome stranger. When a magical past tumbles into her orderly reality, he is Vivienne’s only hope at survival.

Caught between darkness and light, a battle she has no intention to fight – let alone the knowledge to win – Vivienne quickly finds out not even closest allies can be trusted.

Can she look within and access powers from long past, become the enchantress Merlin meant her to be… Or will she lose it all over love, for Sebastien’s salvation? This is a battle between good and evil you don’t want to miss.

Character interview with Vivienne from Avalon Dreams

Vivienne, what do you remember about your past life?
My memories are still a bit fuzzy, but I’d say what really sticks is the freedom I was given. My father, King Adrien, was a firm believer in supporting me through choices not necessarily allowed women my age – or stature – back then.
I also remember my vast kingdom, Elsior. The beautiful mountains, the incredible sunsets, it was pure magic.
Then there were my trainings with Merlin, and those memories are bittersweet now.
But what really sticks with me, even through the memories I only remember vaguely, is definitely the freedom I was allowed.

Review: Second to Surrender

Title: Second to Surrender

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: December 21st, 2019

Goodreads Summary:

Tristan

I swore I was done with love, after my last failed relationship. Being a soldier means making the tough decisions, all for the good of the pack. So when a little miss full of attitude waltzes in, dragging a shitload of trouble with her, I want nothing more than to make that tough decision and kick her the hell out. But then she turns those big, helpless eyes on me, and my wolf roars otherwise. Shit-of-fuck but now I’m screwed…. And her family seriously has a screw loose. To make it worse? We have history.

Daniela

You’d think running away from a psycho family would swear me off relationships for good. Guess what? So did I. In fact, I specifically searched Tristan out because he’s the type I’d never be with. Too much of everything, if you get my gist – attitude included. So why is it when he starts acting all protector, I can’t help but swoon? His dark secrets don’t scare me as much as this sudden tornado within me. This was not in the plans… And I might just have to make a run for it. But will he let me?

My Review:

I absolutely loved the first book, First to Fall, so I was super excited to get into Tristan’s head for this round! And I was not disappointed! My boy has a lot going on in that little brain of his!

Let me say I absolutely fell in love with Dani! She was a great MC who stood her ground and plus, yeah, she has a wolf, too! The chemistry between Tristan and Dani was so good! On fire!

But don’t worry, you get action, other cool fantasy characters, and loads of fun, too. I just love the world that Whitewolf has created here. I’m seriously intrigued to see the next wolf’s book!!

Review: Unconditional Love

Title: Unconditional Love

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: November 8th, 2018

Goodreads Summary:

It’s summer in Tofino, BC. This means chilling, hanging out with friends and meeting hot boys.

Not so for Maya Finnigan, who’s stuck in summer school with extra classes in order to make it to college. Looks like another summer of studying and boring “fun” – and hanging out with her loyal German Shepherd, Bear. Or will it be?

Kolt Waters meets the “hot” criteria with his intense blue eyes and Brit accent, plus he’s the boy-next-door. But his smug attitude and never-ending jabs get on Maya’s nerves.

When Bear goes missing, surprisingly it’s Kolt who jumps to the rescue. But is their budding romance a happily ever after or a wreck in disguise? And what’s the story with their parents, and the secrets they hide?

Dig in for a summer of fun, mystery and first loves…as unconditional as they come.

My Review:

Sometimes you just have to read a novella! This was the perfect size, and it was such an adorable read! Also, there is a little side love story in here as well that I absolutely loved! Plus, there is a POV from a very special animal as well that just made the story that much better!

I thought Maya and Kolt were super likable characters, and I always love the dislike to like scenarios! And it was done so well! Sometimes when you get to an end of a story and feel that deep breath escape from yourself because the story was so cute, that’s what I did! I’ve read all of Alexa’s books so far, and this one does not disappoint!

Also, awesome news! This book is FREE on Amazon, etc!!

Goodreads Summary:

Cassandra DiCavalier thinks she has her life sorted out, when Damon Voight storms back in. Sexy and overprotective, yet with a soft side, this ex-military guy is every girl’s fantasy.

She already had the fantasy – ten years ago – and is not about to fall into the same trap. But despite her best efforts to keep the charming soldier at bay, she seems to be meeting him time and time again.

Cassandra is one tough cookie, and Damon is as stubborn as they come. Will they be able to find their love once again?

My Review:

This is the first book I’ve read by Alexa where no magic was involved, and I love me some of that, but this one had a magic all its own! Cassandra and Damon were freaking awesome and I always love past loves reuniting! There was great banter and swoon between the leads! Also lets not forget the suspense! And I couldn’t put this one down!

Cassandra was a great MC and not annoying! As you know, I get annoyed easily with female MCs but not here! All I can say about Damon is Alexa knows how to write guy characters! Can I just add that Renzo was an excellent side character as well!

I’d actually like to read more contemporary sort of books from the author! Blood Ties was well written and the characters were relatable!! Plus, there was also some pretty emotional spots! Loved it!

Blood Ties, Love Binds

A standalone romance suspense

First love never dies… And neither does revenge.

Cassandra

Of all the things that could go wrong, he had to come back! Ten years ago he leaves me with a broken heart, and now he’s acting like he cares. And let’s not forget how infuriatingly macho he’s become. Damon may think he can boss me around, but he’s got another thing coming. I’m no longer the starry-eyed girl he knew.

Damon

Leaving her was the worst decision I’ve ever made, but I thought it was for the best. I was listening to her father, after all. And now I’m back because of him – and his shady side-dealings. Cassandra thinks she’s got it all figured out, but she doesn’t even know the half of it. With my connections, I know I can keep her safe. If only she’d stop trying to kung fu my ass, maybe we’d get somewhere.

They say opposites attract, but these two will have sparks flying with every page. Hop on a thrilling tale of love, hate, and everything in between as Damon tries to save Cassandra from a heritage that could cost her life – and his.

Excerpt:

Damon watched in slight satisfaction as realization dawned on Cass. Playing the dashing stranger had its appeal, but nothing compared to the recognition drifting in her eyes, even as her lips parted in surprise.

His delight turned to growing frustration when it seemed like she would bolt any minute. He understood the knee-jerk reaction, especially considering their history, but before he could speak Cassandra drew her hand back and slapped him.

Damon stood still for a moment, processing the hit. Her hazel eyes sparked outrage, and a delightful flush stained her cheeks. He forced himself to look past that. “What was that for?”
It was the wrong question to ask, judging by the way she clenched her jaw. When she spoke, Cassandra’s voice was tight with reined-in emotion. “You dare ask me that, after ten years? Ten freaking years!”
“Cassie, I –” Damon tried to take a step closer, but Cassandra moved back, holding her palms up.
(…)
Viktor will pay for this, one way or another.
 
Damon met Cassandra’s gaze once more, and held it. Something in her expression shifted, but she wasn’t running away. Yet. He pounced on the chance while he still could. “That’s not the full story, actually it’s not even a story. I left, yes, but not for the reasons you think.”
“Sure you did.” Cassandra’s eyes shifted from his, avoiding the truth.
Before she could stop him, Damon reached for her chin and forced her to look him at him. “You used to be able to tell when I was lying. Tell me, am I now?”
Flashes of the girl he’d known crossed her expression, though Cassandra did a good job trying to hide it. He could still see the girl he’d helped out with homework, the tougher yet vulnerable side of her he’d fallen in love with…
How can she think I’d leave her? It stung to think that all she recalled of him was his ambitious streak.
It took Damon a second to realize Cassandra had frozen at his touch, and the look in her eyes had changed. When he tuned in to the change in her, he picked up on her quicker breathing, nostrils flaring as if inhaling his scent. Up close, he could now smell the vanilla perfume emanating from her skin, and he wanted nothing more than to sample her lips.
Cassandra’s eyes widened, the anger set aside by the pure chemical reaction they had to one another. The blazing glare, so eager to put him in his place, dimmed now to a sense of assessment.
Damon had been used to girls throwing themselves at him in the military, but he’d never been interested in more than a night. Only one woman had occupied his thoughts, and she was now so close every instinct in him screamed to make her his.
My little spitfire.

Review: Relics of the Underworld

Title: Relics of the Underworld

Author: Alexa Whitewolf

Date of Publication: August 21st, 2018

Freya and Brennan barely have time to settle in their new romance when tragedy strikes. Sick of waiting for the axe to drop, Freya convinces her partner it’s time to fight back. Armed with only the knowledge gained from their respective objects of the power, the two start on a perilous journey to find and destroy the Relics of the Underworld.

Unfortunately, they are not the only ones in search of the mythical treasures. The demon Raksh, more determined than ever to free Set, comes up with his most evil plan yet.

From Scotland to Slovakia and Egypt, this last installment is packed with action and surprises at every turn., while the gods observe their champions and each challenge they face. As Freya and Brennan get closer to their goal, neither is aware of the ultimate sacrifice awaiting them – nor the ancient god pulling their strings.

My Review:

This final installment was just as awesome as the last two, and it left me with all sorts of feels! Seriously, these characters are my little babies. Bren and Freya are such great characters! Their chemistry is just perfect!

What I love best is that this series is YA and actually feels like YA. What I mean is the teens act like teens and not like they’re twenty years older. You get action, history, unique stuff—what’s not to like? Now, I want to go travel the world—like right now!
