TW Synopsis

This is Book 2 in the new Preyfinder series.

Book 1, Precious Sacrifice, is currently in the anthology, Kept.

Willow has her hands full scraping out a life in a grungy neighborhood where drugs and crime are the norm. Life is hard, but it’s about to get harder. Being transformed into a sexual pet for an alien warrior may be her only way out.

But Stom, the man she’s been awarded to as a battle honor, has no use for a female, not when his heart is still in a million pieces.

Though the need to be Stom’s mate is overwhelming her, mending his heart isn’t going to be enough. His enemies are searching, looking for the women who are more than they seem, but she’s in their hands before she discovers she’s more-than-human.

Sometimes it sucks to be a chosen one.

 ★★★★★ Tanya Rae’s Review: 5.0 Stars ★★★★★

Have you ever read a book that you start feeling anxious that you know that you are nearing the end of a book. Well that is how I started feeling about this book. I didn’t want it to end and that surprised me. I mean this is a Sci Fi romance. I never thought that I would want to read anything like that but, I did and I do.

Hmmm I will never look at an electric toothbrush or hair brush the same after reading the Intimidator and neither will you if you read this book. I can’t tell you why because I don’t do spoilers but, you can use your imagination and if you know Cari Silverwood’s books you will know what I mean 😉

I am glad to know that Cari is starting on book 3 of the Preyfinders Series but, sad that I have to wait for it. Yes, Cari has converted me to loving Fantasy/Sci-fi romance another genre I never thought I would like let alone love.

TW Synopsis

This is a Novella and was originally published in the erotic anthology, Kept.

Jadd is an Igrakk Warrior, honed like the sharpest blade, to kill and to command his men, but his conscience gets in the way. When punishment entails becoming a Preyfinder and trialling the Pet-creating drug on a human called Brittany, he plans to stay calm and do his duty. Until he falls in love.

A Preyfinder is trained to withstand hardship and pain, but Jadd would rather kneel before a firestorm than leave his captive, Brittany, to be stalked and killed. The choice between love and loyalty to his soldier brothers may tear him in two.

★★★★Tanya Rae’s Review:  4.0 Stars ★★★★
I think Cari Silverwood can write any genre she wants too. I really liked Precious Sacrifice and I look forward to reading more of this series. I just found out about the Preyfinders series today although this book has been around for a little while now.Sci fi/Fantasy is probably not my favorite genre but, when sci fi/fantasy is about sexy aliens I thought I would give it a try and besides I love Cari’s books so I thought I would explore more and see what else she has written. Since she is writing more on this series this was a good time to start reading Precious Sacrifice.Precious Sacrifice is a Novella only 104 pages so it is a quick read and priced right so if you don’t like it you won’t feel like you have wasted your money.  I very much liked it and will start book 2 in Preyfinders Series tonight.

TW Author BioCari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she’s spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them.

When others are writing bad men doing bad things you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots. This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.

Freaking out readers is her first love and her second love is freaking out the people living in her books. Her favorite hobby is convincing people she has a basement…though she really doesn’t. Promise. If it existed it would be a terrifying place where you would find all the dangerous things that you never knew you craved.

To escape you’d need to get the key you can see through the grate in your cell door. A key that’s hanging from the ceiling by string. The light above is flickering on…off…and you can hear feet dragging along the corridor floor. Your door is locked.

Anyone know how to get blood stains out of concrete?

The Reachers Series by LE Fitzpatrick

lef-640

Title: The Reachers Series

Novels: The Running Game (Book 1), Border Lines (Book 2)

Author: LE Fitzpatrick

Genre: paranormal, science fiction, dystopian, mystery

The Running Game by LE Fitzpatrick

Her father called it the running game. Count the exits, calculate the routes. Always be ready to run because they’ll always be coming for you. Whatever happens, they’ll always be coming for you.

Rachel had let her guard down and they had found her. She could run now, leave the city and try her luck beyond the borders, but with no money and a dark secret to hide her chances of survival are slim.

But then she meets two brothers with a dangerous past and secrets of their own. Can they help her turn the game around?

This is the first installment of the Reacher series. Set in a grim and not too distant future, this urban thriller will keep you hooked until the last page.

TRG_cover

Excerpt:

There were rich men and women lolling around in secluded booths, with whores or groupies or just people having a good time. She guessed they were from London, slumming it in S’aven where depravity was a little easier to find and then leave behind. But Lulu’s wasn’t totally depraved – not like some of the whorehouses in S’aven. These whores were here freely. Clean and tested frequently. Lulu ran a tight ship and she looked after her staff, this much even Rachel knew.

If they pulled off the job they could blow their whole fortune in Lulu’s in just one night and as Rachel stared at the party around her she couldn’t deny she wasn’t tempted. But then her eyes were drawn to the stage at the back of the room and the man clutching a microphone like it was keeping him from falling off. He sang with a voice rich with broken promises, tainted with despair and arrogance. There was a drunken slur to his words. By the look of him he’d been drunk for days. His blonde hair had tangled in places, falling over his face as he dipped to reach the lower notes. Circles adorned his eyes, marking his drinking binge like tree rings – how many days? How many weeks? And as she looked closer Rachel swore it was the same suit he was wearing when he put her into the boot of Riva’s car.
“Roxy looks rough,” she murmured.
Charlie frowned, more concerned than she’d expected given what Roxy had done to them.
“Let’s get a table,” he said, gesturing to a free one in the centre of the room.
They weaved around the other tables and secured a seat with a prime view of the stage. On closer inspection Roxy looked worse. This wasn’t just a few late nights. This was something deep rooted. There was sadness in his eyes and bitterness in his voice. As he sang out the words Rachel realised he meant every morose thing he said. When she had last seen him he was closing the boot of Riva’s car and she was so angry with him for that, but to see him like this, so lost and vulnerable, made her relent just a little.
She stared up at him transfixed by the sudden change in character. The confident outgoing Roxy was gone. He barely looked at anyone, keeping his eyes on the distant bar or just closed. Rachel’s glare grew deeper. She concentrated, filtering out the sounds around her, fixing her attention on Roxy and only Roxy until she could feel him vibrating in her head. Look at me! She yelled internally and Roxy’s eyes snapped open. He looked at her in confusion and then surprise, stumbling through his song. Quickly he recovered himself and twisted the microphone stand in his hand. Putting on the bravado she recognised, he resumed his song like a different person. But it was all an act and they both knew it.
He tipped his head to them and finished his song. The crowd noticed the change in music and applauded loudly, bellowing for an encore until a voluptuous woman with nothing on but her snake started belly dancing. Roxy kissed the dancer on the cheek, patted the snake and jumped off the stage, waving to the barman and sitting down at the table with them – a pretend king in a pretend castle.

tw reviewTanya Rae’s Review:

This book wasn’t what I was expecting after reading the synopsis. I thought it was going to be a paranormal book, but I felt like the genre was more Sci-fi.

The story took a little time to get traction, but by the midway point I had really started to care about the main characters. By the end of the book, I was completely invested. All in all, I felt that it was a good story even though it was not my usual genre. Oh and there was a cliffhanger so be on the lookout for the next book.

I received this Audio ARC for an honest review and I give The Running Game 3.5 stars.

Border Lines

“We all remember that kid in Piccadilly. That determined look he had on his face as he willed all those people to him. Just using his mind he pulled them close then blew them all to pieces. It could be anyone. Your neighbour, your friend, your lover. Remain vigilant. Reachers are everywhere.”

When the perfect job comes up Charlie doesn’t think twice about taking it. This is the break he’s been looking for and nobody, not even the rest of his team, can persuade him otherwise.

The job means working for an old enemy and crossing the border into London. Both are risky but Charlie has no idea how high the stakes really are.

The team will have to confront their past, each other and a killer who is closer than they realise. But can they all make it out of the city alive?

This is the second installment in the Reachers series.

Killshot

Author Aria Michaels Killshot coverTitle: Killshot

Series: Icarus (Book 1)

Genre: Science fiction

Author: Aria Michaels

Reviewer: Tanya Rae

Stars: 5.0 stars ☆☆☆☆☆

Tanya Rae’s Review:  I didn’t know what I was getting into when I started this ARC. (ARC received for an honest review).  Sci Fi is not my usual genre.   But, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised and found I really enjoyed Killshot and I am glad that I read this book.  There were parts that brought tears to my eyes and parts that had me hanging on to my seat ready to find out what is going to happen.  All in all a very good book and found I couldn’t put the book down I needed to find out what was going to happen.  There is a cliffhanger at the ending of this book.  And, I will be in line (a virtual line) to get the next book in this series.

Book Description from Amazon:

When seventeen year old Liv Larson and her brother are sent to separate foster homes, she gives up on her old life, her old friends, and her faith in God. The only bright spot in Liv’s new life is her energetic and obnoxious foster-sister, Riley. When Riley convinces her to come to the rooftop party to view Icarus, the up-coming solar flare, Liv meets Zander. For the first time in months her troubles take a back seat…that is until what should have been a small flare, erupts into a full blown solar storm.

Now, Liv and her rag-tag group of not-quite friends must find a way to survive the sweltering heat, lingering radiation, and the mysterious virus that appears to have found an ideal host among their ranks. Alliances will be formed, and battle lines will be drawn as Liv and her new friends set out on a perilous journey to save their loved ones, find answers, and reach salvation.

But, something sinister awaits them in the dark—and it’s undeniably connected to Liv.

Will Liv be able to keep her promise and reunite with her brother? Will her brave determination be enough to save them all from a rogue government, a terrifying virus, and the things that go bump in the night?

…Or was Icarus, indeed, the KILLSHOT.
