Shifter Date: Must Love Lions by Alma Black **ARC Review**


 Alexis Parrish is very single. Sassy and smart, she's great at her job as a journalist, but it's never given her the time to find the right man--specifically, a human. So when she gets assigned to interview Max, a lion shifter, about the new dating app he's created, she can't believe her intense attraction to him. After all, humans and shifters don't date.

Max is used to causing trouble. He broke tradition by creating the dating app, Shifter, which humans and shifters alike can use to answer the call of the wild. 

When Max challenges Alexis to give him a chance, she can't say no. A human like her has no business with this handsome alpha lion, but she can't resist his magnetism. Their chemistry is primal, their connection positively animalistic. After all, once you go shifter, you never go back.

But when a rogue shifter group against interspecies dating targets Alexis, Max will stop at nothing to protect her. It's more than his pride on the line; it's his mate.


Warning: If sassy, sexy, and carnal reads aren't your thing, this book isn't for you. It contains lots of dirty sex, violence, and witty banter.



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"Love is dangerous. And wild. And spectacular."

Max is the leading alpha of the Pride and the maker of "Shifter Date", a dating app that matches humans with shifters. He is threading new waters with this move, since normally this isn't acceptable and even though humans know about their existance, they don't match with each other. But Max is thinking out of the box and wants to see if he can convince others as well.

There comes Alexis, a journalist that doesn't like or approve relationships between shifters and humans, but she has been ordered to take an interview by the maker of this new dating app and that's how she meets Max. The sexy shifter who challenges her to think otherwise, when she seems so against the wole idea.

"He didn't understand why no one else saw things the way he did. Love wanted what love wanted, and it didn't give a shit about gender, race or species. Lust was the same. He desired Alexis, and if Max was human, he'd be willing to be nothing would have stopped them from tearing each other's clothes off and going at it in his office. Right here. Right now."


I'm not really used in shifter romance to be honest, apart from vampires & werewolves, I definitely hadn't read about a lion shifter, so when I was approached to read and review this story at first I was a little hesitant, but I was also intrigued by the synopsis.

I loved the writing, the characters and the plot. Admittedly, I think there was a lot of potential and it could be explored furthermore, since there were many aspects that had me invested and I wanted to see more of them, like the Pride, his relationship with his parents, this new shifter who wanted him. I expected more 'drama' maybe or at least just a little bit more of everything. I know it was a small book and maybe that's why it felt that way, but I do believe there was plenty of potential that wasn't used sadly.


Still, I believe that this was a great work and it definitely didn't seem like a debut author writing this. If you like paranormal/ shifter romance stories, with lots of sexual tension and steamy scenes and also a great dosage of adventure, then this is a book you should give a chance to read. Congrats on your debut work, Alma! I'm looking forward to reading more by you!

PS: How awesome is the fact that Shifter Date is also a real site?? I had the quiz and my result was Dragon Shifters! Check it ou: https://www.shifterdate.com

Harley & Rose by Carmen Jenner *Blog Tour & Arc Review*





 Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isn’t her actual wedding day, and that she’s only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?

Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaid’s bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.

Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. She’s spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.

She’s always been his best friend.

He’s always been hers.

She’s in love with him.

He’s... not in love with her.

He’s... marrying someone else.

He’s... hiding something.

He’s... well—it’s complicated.




Rose has been Harley's best friend since they were five years old. She has been in love with him since then and she wishes to get married with him one day. She is his Wendy and he is her Pan. Fate has other plans for them. Especially when he is getting married with another woman and she meets another man. But Fate has not finished with them. Plenty of stuff will happen since his bride to be abandons him and they take off to his honeymoon together. 

All I know is that there isn’t a Rose without Harley or a Harley without Rose. 

The story was probably the best I have read this year it's definitely listed as one of my top reads and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves a good friends to lovers story. I'm still dealing with a book hangover and I can't get it out of my mind. I haven't been able to pick up anything else to read since I finished it. It was that good and it shook me to the core. It's a devastatingly beautiful story between two human beings who grew up together. I loved the writing, the flashbacks, the thoughts and the emotional torment that provoked me. I know that I won't be able to forget this read and it will stay with me.

Blurb
Dillon Keck knew Ashlyn Mayson was drunk when she suggested they get married. He knew he should have taken her back to their hotel room and put her to bed. Instead, he did what he had been craving to do since the moment they met.

Claim her as his.

Waking up married in Vegas isn't something Ashlyn Mayson ever thought would happen to her. Having Dillon, her boss, a man she thinks is a dick, insist they stay married is absurd, but every time he touches her, she gets lost in him and wonders if maybe they are meant to be together.

But someone isn't happy for Dillon and Ashlyn and their new found romance, and they're willing to do anything to keep them apart. Even commit murder.

Meet Zander & Getty in DOWN SHIFT -
the newest stand alone in the Driven Series by K. Bromberg!

NOW AVAILABLE

down shift cover.jpg

The New York Times bestselling Driven series continues with a story about finding love where you least expect it...
Behind the wheel, racing champion Zander Donavan is at the top of his game. But after too much excess in his personal life, he’s forced to step away. He needs to accomplish something all on his own—outside of his famous father, Colton Donavan’s, shadow.
Getty Caster is running away from the abuse that clouds her past. She thinks she’s found the perfect escape—until she discovers a stranger in the beachside cottage she’d been promised. He’s undeniably sexy, but she’s there to heal. Alone.
Before long though, fighting with each other turns into fighting their attraction. And giving into desire sets off a chain reaction that has their pasts colliding. With an unexpected love on the line, can they overcome the fallout to build a future?



I LOVED IT!!!! ♥♥♥ 


Zander and Getty are both running away from their pasts when they meet. Somehow finding each other will help with the now, but what happens when the past and the future comes against with the present?


"Just Jump."



I seriously can't express how much I loved Down Shift!! It was the perfect mixture of sweet, sexy and funny and with angsty parts that make the salt and pepper of a great story! I loved how Zander and Getty met, how their relationship progressed and how nothing was rushed. I loved the pace of this book, the excellent build between these two and even the scenes with the secondary characters as well. 

The sex scenes were also quite scorching and also the perfect amount, not too short or too many. I think Mander is my favorite hero by K. Bromberg and even though the prologue had me worried for a minute, the rest of the book definitely makes up for it. 

I would definitely recommend this book to my friends and everyone who loves romance. Trust me when I say that you're gonna love Golden Boy & Socks!!

EXCERPT
“You don’t know anything about me.” My voice is slight but strong, my need to assert myself front and center despite his calling me on the carpet.
“That’s where you’re wrong, Socks. I might not know where you’re from or why I ruffled your feathers today, but I know you’re stronger than you give yourself credit for. Whatever it is that you ran from back home, you did it. You got out and are making it on your own. That takes guts and you deserve mad props for that. I know you like things messy and are goddamn cute when you’re tipsy. I know you’re stubborn as hell and gorgeous as fuck. And that your kiss tastes like an aged whiskey: something I want to sip slowly, feel on my lips, savor on my tongue, and take my time with before I get drunk on it.” With a lift of his eyebrows and a nod of his head, he walks past me, leaving me with my mouth agape and eyes wide.
I can’t move. Just stand staring at the door in front of me as I try to process what he just said, what he meant by it, and yet there’s no use because we just had a whole one-sided conversation and that need to banter with him is gone. Lost to the tingling in my lower belly and the wild spinning of my thoughts.
“Oh, and, Getty?” Zander calls out to me from the kitchen, refusing to continue until I turn to face him, standing there unabashedly shirtless. “If you ever call me pretty again, we’re gonna have a real problem. I guarantee you there is nothing pretty about me.”
I almost smile at the fact that out of all of the crappy things I said to him, that is the one that bugged him the most.
“You are kind of pretty, though,” I murmur, unable to resist goading him further, needing to try to get us back on an even playing field. Because hell if right now I don’t feel like I’m on the low end of the teeter-totter.
His immediate response? A snort to signify that his chiseled abs and the tall, dark, and handsome thing he’s got going on are nothing more than average.
“Last warning, Socks.” His eyes flash with mirth. And what looks like desire.
An unexpected part of me—the one who usually hides and doesn’t ever take a chance—wants to say it again. Just to see what he’d do if I did.
“So damn pretty.” I don’t know who’s more shocked at my comment, him or me, but we stand there for a moment, gazes locked, unspoken words warring across the distance between us.
He walks toward me with a predatory gleam in his eyes and a salacious smirk on his lips that catches me off guard. “I know I said you were brave, Getty, but now you’re just playing with matches.”
I draw in a long inhale as he steps right in front of me. I can’t look at him. My nerve is suddenly gone. Outside, rain pelts the roof. The constant drip into the bucket in the hallway serves as a metronome to this anticipatory silence we are dancing in. The goose bumps on his chest are the only thing I can focus on.
When his thumb and forefinger direct my chin up so I’m forced to meet his eyes, every part of me hums from his touch. From the want of something I don’t quite understand myself and couldn’t ever put into words. Our eyes meet—his intense, mine searching for answers that aren’t his to give—before his gaze flicks down to my mouth and then back up again.
“Not yet, Getty.” He closes his eyes for a beat, and I see what I think is restraint reflected in his grimace, before a ghost of a smile spreads on his lips. “I don’t think you’re ready to light this fire just yet.”
