Bad Potions by Michelle Fox Review


Gambling with magic, betting on love. Welcome to Charmed in Vegas! 

A witch on a hit list and a cursed elf in sin city, their hearts and lives on the line. 

Witch-in-training Marion fled to Vegas to escape being murdered. She's counting on the wards of Vegas to protect her until she can learn the magic to do it herself. Except her love potions keep exploding, and if she can't fix them, she'll never control the defense magic that will keep her safe. 

The last thing she wants to do is fall in love, but that might be the only fix for her bad potions. 

Elf Aidan thought Vegas would be the place to break his curse and win his way back into the Fairy Queen's honor guard, but it's not turning out to be so easy. When he meets Marion, he realizes she might be just what he needs to get rid of his curse. But her would-be murderer has found her, and Aidan will have to protect her or lose his only chance at escaping the curse. 

Aidan knows exactly what to do to keep Marion alive, but what he isn't prepared for is falling in love. 

And how that will royally piss off his Queen. 

Warning: This story includes foul-mouthed pixies in Elvis jumpsuits, sexy sirens, big-hearted giants, shapeshifting as a weight loss method, steamy sex scenes and all bets on love win big. 

My Review:
  This was outside the purview of Michelle Fox's normal books, but it was very well written. It was very fast paced, but seemed to stay true to the whole story. If you are a regular Fox fan, there is not a lot of shifter in this book if you are looking for one of her regular books. This is more a fairy/witch book. I love the message in it, though. This book is still wonderfully written and quite entertaining in true Michelle Fox fashion, though. We usually hear of faes, elves, and the Supernatural like being able to talk their way into anyone's bed. In Aiden's case, he can usually succeed in never making it to anyone's bed, since his tongue seems to be the opposite. When he meets Marion at a Supe nightclub in Vegas, he finds it is not that way with her. Although, then he messes up and now she has his heart, but someone else holds his loyalty. He is determined to see Marion's safety through though, no matter the  cost or how it will hurt, and he knows it will hurt both of them, when they part, So what will he do?

Shelby's Way...Maybe by Katherine Mitchell Review


Blurb: This story tells the coming-of-age of an overprotected young mother who becomes an adult. One beautiful woman without a plan; three men, each with a plan. 
Shelby is a stunning beauty, a young mother whose husband, a Hollywood stuntman, runs off with a rich glamorous older woman. On her own, Shelby is raising 8-year old Pamela and goes to work to make ends meet. She is naïve, unaware of her luminous beauty and easy-going charms neither of which goes unnoticed by men, even a world famous novelist who sets his eyes on her. She meets an irresistibly handsome and successful attorney who instantly takes up residence under her skin. Her topsy-turvy world is grounded by motherhood. Into this curious limbo where all that is required of Shelby is not to do anything she would regret, enters Marc, a successful screenwriter and former family friend who, with his final divorce decree in hand comes calling. 
Because of Shelby, the lives of the three men intersect and interact in surprising ways as their just comeuppance is served. 
Where is the love? Who is the future?

My review: There were a lot of things in this book that didn't make sense to me. The beginning of the book gave me whiplash, while after the first few chapters it seemed to drag. Although, the first chapter or so just more or less give you background. I loved watching Shelby come into her own. It was nice seeing a woman who started out as nothing more than an arm-piece and trophy wife, pick up the mantle and be the woman and mother she was always meant to be. Although, to a point, judging from Pamela, she always did it, just didn't realize she did. Pamela doesn't really seem bothered by the fact that her dad is no longer around, which leads me to believe he was never really there to begin with. That means more than likely there were signs of things to come and Shelby just missed them. This is a great coming of age story, although Shelby is already middle aged. It is ok for an afternoon read, just don't look for any deep revelations, you won't find them here.

Jericho by Crystal Dawn Review





Blurb: The Strong Pack 
T.J. is just an average human girl trying to avoid a serious relationship with anyone but especially wolves. She's been hurt and that isn't going to happen again any time soon. 
Jericho is just your average alpha wolf heir to the Strong pack alpha. He's a bit of a player. He plans to have a good time until he finds his soul mate and settles down. He thinks T.J. is a pity date a mutual friend has forced on him until he sees her. He wants her and he won't take no for an answer. 
He agrees to one night only but then discovers she is his soul mate. How crazy is that? He also discovers she is being chased by a crazy wolf that happens to be her ex. There is something special about T.J. that she hasn't told him. Will it make a difference when he finds out? 
* note- This is set in the white wolf world. It has explicit sex.



My review: This is a great Wolf shifter book featuring Jericho and T.J. Sandy, TJ's best friend, has been trying to set her up with this new guy to get her out of her drought. TJ owns a bar called Tabby's with her sister and works there a couple days a week. After breaking up with her ex, a shifter, TJ is a little gunshy, She wants sex with no attachment. She sounds like every guy's dream, right??!! Well, not so for this guy whose Wolf identifies her as "Mate" right off the bat. This is their story, they get their crap worked out pretty quick, but there are other outside forces at work that will stop at nothing to break them apart. Luckily, there seems to be some freedom that comes with being the Alpha's son, so with that being said, will Jericho be able to keep TJ safe? Read and find out... my lips are sealed. The book is definitely worth a read, though. It is quite entertaining. It is not quite on the edge of your seat, and it won't keep you guessing, the plot is easy to figure out. Although, you will enjoy it if you are a fan of Shifters. So, go get your copy today.

Beyond the Veil Box Set- Various Authors Review 99 CENTS





 20 USA Today, Amazon, International, and Award Winning Bestselling Authors in one NEW sizzling magical paranormal romance boxed set. 

Beyond the Veil is 'Where Magic Happens,' and the alpha men and their sassy, head-strong and independent women, heat up the pages of this steamy and engaging collection of stories.



My review: Wow, just wow. When I read Under the Veil, I thought once I could read the full length story it would suit my hunger. It didn't. Even after reading these, I want more. These stories are so good. I honestly didn't find one I didn't like. If you want something to keep you occupied for a while but you are on a budget, look no further. You have found it. This book is jam-packed with every Supernatural creature you could want. You have an Incubus, Vampires, Shifters, Witches, even a couple of Goblins. You also get a wide variety of settings, everything from aristocracy in England to the city streets of New York. If you like Paranormal, then there is something in this book for you. Now, it is time for me to track down all of these and see if there are sequels. If not, I guess I will be reading this again back to back to quell my hunger. All of these authors are amazing. Not to mention, who knows, you may find some new authors to love out of this experience. This book is over 1000 pages. It is definitely worth the $0.99 price, even if you are only drawn to one or two of the stories.

Fortuna by Elaine Cantrell Review



Blurb:
  Aimee Sherwood never dreamed that following her fiancé into the witness protection pro-gram would land her in a haunted house in a town that’s downright creepy. She’d have laughed if she had been told the guy who lives down the road might be her soul mate, not the man whose ring she’s wearing. Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

My Review:
  I loved the ending off this book, but I didn't like that both of them stepped outside their relationship. The storyline was really good, though I thought the characters could have been fleshed out a little better. Overall, it's a decent story for a rainy afternoon, just don't expect some curl your toes romance. This is more one of the innocent, sweet, and savory ones. I do love the way the author can make you see the characters, their moods, even their mannerisms though. Don't get me wrong, this was definitely not a bad book. I didn't have to struggle to continue reading like I have had to with some. It just wasn't quite what I expected.
