Blog Tour: Thirsty (Review)

A gangster hiding from his past. A single mom fighting for her future. Can she show this bad boy the man he’s meant to be?

“Mia Hopkins is an imaginative author who doesn’t take the easy road to a formulaic book.”—USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog

My name is Salvador Rosas. Back in the barrio, my past is written on the walls: ESHB. Short for East Side Hollenbeck, my father’s gang—my gang. Hell, it’s a family tradition, one that sent both my brothers away. They used to call me “Ghost” because I haunted people’s dreams. Now I’ve got nothing going for me except a hipster gringo mentoring me in a new career. An ex-con making craft beer? No mames.

Still, people in this neighborhood look out for one another. That’s how I became Vanessa Velasco’s unwelcome tenant. Chiquita pero picosa. She’s little, but with curves so sweet they’re dangerous. I remember Vanessa from the old days, the straight-A student with big plans. Plans that were derailed by another kid stupid enough to think he was bulletproof. Now Vanessa knows better than to believe in empty promises. There’s fire in her . . . and if I touch her, I might get burned.

I’m trying everything I can to go straight. But when East Side Hollenbeck comes calling, I might have to risk it all to find out if there’s a future for Vanessa and me. Because she’s the only one who can quench my thirst for something real.

The Rosas brothers will return in Trashed!

The first novel in the Eastside Brewery series follows Salvador Rosas and his rise from the ashes of his past. Mia Hopkins completely blew my expectations with Sal and his story is one you can't miss!

Sal has spent the last five years in prison and is working to clean up his life. Working two night jobs to save up for an apartment and avoiding contact with his gang, Eastside Hollenbeck, he struggles everyday to keep the past in the past and the future fixed firmly in his mind. An older woman in the neighborhood takes mercy on him and offers him a place to live, which puts him closer to his one true desire, Vanessa Velasco. As their relationship grows, Sal is shown that there is more to life than the gang and the anxiety that plagues can be overcome.

I like that Thirsty doesn't romanticize gang life, but instead shows a troubled youth rising above that lifestyle to live an honest life and find passion in something meaningful. It wasn't easy for Sal, but he found things more important than risking his life for the whims of others. I was surprised that the story was written in only his perspective, but I found that I quite liked it that way. Sal has the kind of voice that you don't want to interrupt. He's honest about his flaws and when he realizes that it's okay to care deeply for others and show it he seems all the more real.

I found a striking similarity between Sal and the Fuentes brothers from Simone Elkeles Perfect Chemistry series, so I felt a little nostalgic while reading Thirsty. Mia Hopkins did a superb job creating this character and building his life in a way that readers can understand. I made it through all the drama and tension of story with my heart intact, but the ending actually left me surprised and salivating for more!

Beckett King just inherited his father's fortune, his company-and all his enemies. If he's going to stay on top, he needs someone he can trust beside him. And though they've been rivals for years, there's no one he trusts more than Samara Mallick.

The rebel. That's how Samara has always thought of Beckett. And he's absolutely living up to his unpredictable ways when he strides into her office and asks for help. She can't help wondering if it's a legit request or just a ploy to get her into bed. Not that she'd mind either one. After all, she likes to live on the edge too.

But soon the threats to the King empire are mounting, and the two find family secrets darker than they ever imagined and dangerous enough to get them both killed.

What were you thinking about just then?” His gaze fell to her mouth. “Never mind. You don’t have to tell me. It’s written all over your face.”
She licked her lips as he stepped closer, as he backed her against the wall and bracketed her in with his hands on either side of her head. He felt bigger in this position, as if his shoulders could block out the very sun. You have to get him to back off. You’re too close. She leaned against the wall, the move arching her back just a little. Beckett’s gaze dropped to where her breasts pressed against her blouse, and he dragged in an unsteady breath. As if he was using every ounce of willpower not to touch her. He dragged his eyes up to meet hers. “You were thinking about that night.”
She could deny it, but it would be pointless. “Yeah.”
Slowly, oh so slowly, he moved one hand to sift his fingers through her hair. When she didn’t immediately answer, he leaned closer yet. “I think about it, too.” He trailed his fingers through her hair until he reached her shoulder and his thumb dipped beneath the fabric of her shirt. “All the fucking time.” He dropped his hand farther, the tips of his fingers tracing over her breast in a touch so light she was half sure she imagined it.
Might have convinced herself she imagined it if her entire body wasn’t tuned to his in that moment.
Touch me.
As if reading her thoughts, he shifted closer, his leg sliding between hers. The move forced her skirt up as she spread her legs to accommodate his thigh. Higher and higher until he was firmly pressed against her clit. It throbbed in time with her heartbeat, and it was everything she could do not to rub on his thigh like a mindless version of herself.
She felt mindless. Samara gave up her determination not to touch him. She couldn’t wrap her legs around his waist because of her damn skirt, but she ran her hands up his chest. “We can’t.”
“I know.” But he didn’t stop. He slid his hands down to her ass, urging her to grind against his thigh. Slowly, so incredibly slowly, as if he had all the time in the world. He dragged his mouth over her collarbone, the faint rasp of whiskers drawing a whimper from her lips.
Samara dug her fingers into his hair, and he went still. Waiting. She pulled him up and took his mouth the way she’d wanted to since she’d snuck out of that hotel room six months before. She flicked his tongue with hers, teasing him even as he resumed the delicious movement between them again. Yes, yes, do that, don’t stop.
Beckett let her have control for all of two seconds, and then he deepened the kiss, pressing her more firmly against the wall. He took with his mouth even as he gave with his body, hitching her higher until her toes barely touched the floor and she was completely at his mercy. Pleasure sparked through her, and she kissed him harder. It wasn’t enough, might never be enough, but she couldn’t stop.

Not when she knew that, as good as this was, what came next was even better.

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon (Review)

“Deeply satisfying, delightfully swoon-inducing.”—Publishers Weekly on Kerrelyn Sparks’s Love at Stake series


Gwennore is an Elf able to track down the cause of a certain illness and heal it—a valuable asset to her people. But when she is thrust into the realm of the dragons, she discovers a haunted place of power, passion, and magic—one that is plagued by an ancient curse. When she meets the smoldering General Silas Dravenko, Gwen knows she’s entered a whole new world of trouble. She’s been raised never to trust a dragon. So why does making a deal with the devil feel so good?

Silas has no way of saving the royal family he’s served for years. But when a beautiful, innocent elf comes bursting into his world, Silas is awakened to desire in a way he’s never felt before. But how can he trust a sworn enemy. . .and how can he live without her, in Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon by New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks.

Rating: 5/5

This is the first novel I've had the chance to read in The Embraced series and I LOVE it! Kerrelyn Sparks writes with a flare of humor as her innocent heroine falls for a big bad dragon!

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon was so much more than I was expecting! In a twist of fate, Gwennore finds herself taken to Norveshka by dragon. While there she finds that the queen is deathly ill and only her gift and knowledge of healing can help. Tricked into staying by the gorgeous General Dravenko, Gwen faces bigger problems than the prejudice directed her way for being an elf. The fate of a people who see her as an enemy rests on her shoulders, and her heart is at risk of falling for the wrong man.

Not only is this story a fantastic and sexy romance, but it's full of action and intrigue. Norveshka has a secret history that it's leaders will do anything to protect. An adversary from the past is back to wreak havoc with the lives of Gwen and her sisters, but the threat turns out to include multiple entities. Even though I never got a chance to read the previous two stories, I immediately fell in love with this world and the characters that inhabit it. Aerthlan sounds lush and full of beauty and darkness, just like our own world, but with the added bonus of shapeshifters, dragons, and other powerful creatures!

Personally, it's the perfect place for me to jump into the series, because Gwen is the kind of character I never get tired of reading about. A little naive, innocent, and held back by insecurities she gradually allows love, friendship, and family to draw her out and mold her into a stronger heroine. The next release will have to be my top priority because I'm eager to see what the future holds for the newly allied kingdoms and it's unforgettable rulers!

Anne Bishop Takes Readers on a Tour of Lake Silence (Review)

In this thrilling and suspenseful fantasy, set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, Vicki DeVine and her lodger, the shapeshifter Aggie Crowe, stumble onto a dead body . . . and find themselves enmeshed in danger and dark secrets.

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others–vampires, shapeshifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget . . .

After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence, in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki’s have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what’s out there watching you.

Vicki was hoping to find a new career and a new life. But when her lodger, Aggie Crowe–one of the shapeshifting Others–discovers a dead body, Vicki finds trouble instead. The detectives want to pin the man’s death on her, despite the evidence that nothing human could have killed the victim. As Vicki and her friends search for answers, things get dangerous–and it’ll take everything they have to stay alive.

I've been crushing on The Others series since Written in Red. While I was patiently waiting for another story about Simon Wolfguard and Meg Corbyn, Anne Bishop decided to introduce Vicki De Vine and a slew of new and interesting Others. I begrudgingly admit that Lake Silence pulled on my heartstrings a bit, and I'm dying for more!

Vicki is the new owner and caretaker of a bed and breakfast, called The Jumble, in a human town controlled by the Others. She doesn't know that there are evil, greedy forces waiting to pounce and take away everything she's worked for. Thankfully, her compassion for the young Aggie Crowe, and other Others she comes across, endear her to the terra indigene leaders and gains her some kind of protection from the Elders.

Yes, I was a little depressed to not get more of Meg and Simon, but Lake Silence has offered a different vibe that makes this story an asset. All the stories up to this point have touches of dark humor, but I found many more laugh out loud moments paired with the violence of life with man-eating creatures. Vicki may struggle with insecurity and anxiety, but her snark and sass come through loud and clear. She finds her voice by the end of the novel and I love her just as much as I love Meg! There are quite a few compelling human characters that also have backgrounds that make them different from the rest of the population. Events in the Lakeside Courtyard are creating a wave of change in the rest of the world and it's characters like Vicki, Officer Grimshaw, and Julian, who do what they can to keep the terra indigene from wiping out the entire population of humans.

I can safely say that I have no idea where this series is going, but I'm behind Anne Bishop 100%! With Lake Silence, she's opened up the world of the Others to our prying eyes and I can't wait to travel a bit further into this fantastical land!

Collision Point (Review)

From #1 bestselling author Lora Leigh comes Collision Point, part of the thrilling Brute Force series—packed with powerful men, steely women, and explosive passion.

She’s also more desirable to Rory—and dangerous to love. Can he protect her from her father’s enemies without surrendering to his own passions…or will love seal their fate for good?

Lora Leigh's explosive new series takes off with a blast of action. Collision Point opens during a high stakes rescue mission to save Amara Resnova. Months later she can't remember a year of her life and has the overwhelming sense of loss. When Riordan Malone steps back into her life as bodyguard, those hidden memories start to resurface and the question of who kidnapped Amara is closer to being answered.

The story pulled me in because I wanted to know what was so traumatizing that Amara forced herself to forget. The road to recovery was extremely emotional and will definitely drag a few tears from you! While I know this is a spinoff from one of her earlier series, I went into Collision Point never having read any related stories. It was a bit hard to get into a rhythm with this story because it jumped in like I was supposed to know who was who, and then later it explained who certain characters are and their role in the series. That didn't take away from the story, but I wasn't forewarned so it through me off a bit. Once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down! Amara and Rory are such strong-willed characters and their love is so passionate it nearly set fire to my tablet!

Focusing on Amara and Riordan's struggle back to each other, and the mystery of who targeted her,  kept me gobbling up the pages. Brute Force brings on the sexy with strong, alpha heroes and fierce, beautiful heroines! I have to say that I'm looking forward to more from this series and Lora Leigh!
