Review of Lumberman Werebear (Saw Bears #7) by T.S. Joyce


Haydan Walker is perfectly content as the only remaining bachelor in the Ashe Crew. Sure, his crew seems happy, but his bear is different and has no urge to find a mate. So when one of the Gray Backs begs him to claim his sister, Haydan’s instinct is to run as far away as he can. Cassie Belle isn’t taking no for an answer, though, and Haydan is about to find out the little sexy-as-hell, smart-mouthed hellion is toting some serious baggage. 

Cassie is no pushover. She knows what she wants, and she patiently hunts until she gets it. And right now, she wants Haydan to claim her so she’ll be under the protection of the giant, tatted-up, steely-eyed bad boy bear shifter. She’ll be the perfect mate—friends with benefits—and she’ll be sure to leave her emotions at the door. It’s a solid plan until Haydan shows her how different life could be if she’d only let someone in. 

Change is hard, and facing her past even harder, but if she can allow Haydan to help, Cassie just might find the sanctuary she’s been searching for. 

Content Warning: explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. 
Adult only bear shifter romance.





Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Wanted: Mate Needed!  Matt needed Haydan's help.  He needed him to claim his sister and protect her, and he knew Haydan was the perfect match for Cassie.  Lumberman Werebear is the seventh book in the Saw Bears series and it was a blissful, entertaining read full of the backwood bear shifter antics that is quickly becoming T.S. Joyce's trademark in the paranormal romance genre.  Mattress racing with four wheelers and wine from a box are only a few of the hilarious scenes from this witty yet meaningful story.  Cassie and Haydan don't realize it at first, but this is their happily ever after and you don't want to miss reading it.

Cassie's past is filled with nightmares and dark secrets she shares with only her brother, Matt.  When her mate is killed by the Alpha of the Red Claws of South Dakota, she needs a protector and Haydan is the bear for the job.  Haydan is the only member of the Ashe Crew without a mate and he plans on staying that way until he receives a proposition and guilt trip from the most unlikely of adversaries!   His life changes on a dime when he meets Cassie and agrees to become her protector.

I know I sound like a broken record, but each story in this series gets better and better and the connectivity of the characters builds a bond with the reader.  That is an indicator of how talented and gifted this author is!  The anticipation and build up for the next book from Ms. Joyce is off the Richter scale and I cannot wait to add it to my growing library.

Review of Bound by Tears (Cauld Ane #6) by Tracey Jane Jackson



Jesska Shane has suffered a devastating loss, and now pushes away those who love her the most. Kaspar Baldursson is in search of answers concerning his brother's sudden disappearance. When he finds his brother--and his forever mate in the process--he must uncover the threats surrounding his family and protect his mate at all costs. Will Kaspar's love be strong enough to tear down the walls Jesska keeps building around her heart? Will he be able to save her before the secrets in their past destroy them all? 





Overall Rating:  5 Rockin’ ★★★★

Just when you think a series cannot get better, you find out that it can!  Bound by Tears, book six in the Cauld Ane series is a remarkable example of that!  Tracey Jane Jackson has created another facet to an already enthralling storyline by bringing in a race that is older than the Cauld Ane. The characters are bigger than life, and the pages are filled with action, drama and mystery!

The Kaspar Baldursson is the King of the Kalt Einn, an ancient race that was the predecessor of the Cauld Ane. His people are thought to be extinct, but they are really hiding. Kaspar and his two brothers lead their people, but over time he has become isolate and solitary. When Kaspar finds out that his brother Ari had children with a human and was now a prisoner of the Cauld Ane King, he makes arrangements to take care of business. Starting with his brother! A mating between human and Kalt Einn was forbidden by law and so it was disturbing to find out that this had occurred. He also did not expect to find out that his forever mate was human!

Jesska has known grief and loss, enough to almost push her to the point of taking her own life! Her life changes when she meets Kaspar Baldursson, her niece’s uncle.  A man that seems to look into her very soul, and sees the deep scars buried inside.  But he has secret of his own. He is a man accustomed to taking control and leading others.  What does he want with her?  How can she keep her sister and niece safe from the danger that is slowly closing in on them?

Expect the unexpected and you will find that in this phenomenal story by the brilliantly talented, Tracey Jane Jackson! I am filled with anticipation waiting for the next book and where it will take me!

excerpt

After the line thinned out, Kade went back to walking the floor and checking on tables. Seeing Samantha had irritated me but it wasn’t what was on my mind. Diem had called me multiple times and yet I was too much of a pussy to answer. What was I so afraid of? I wanted to talk to her so badly, but I knew if I did that all the wrong words would come out of my mouth. I’d tell her how much I loved the feel of her in my arms and how soft her skin was or how good her hair smelled. I wasn’t even positive why she was calling me so much. I wondered if maybe she was mad about what happened. Maybe she wanted to tell me off. But what if she didn’t? What if she liked our kiss, too? She seemed to enjoy it at the time. But maybe she was having second thoughts about it now. What if she enjoyed kissing me? What did that mean? I groaned and snatched up a new bottle of tequila from beneath the counter. I couldn’t do that to Kade. He’d been my best friend since I moved out to Miami and has been by my side through every shitty moment in my life thereafter. Every fucked up thing my mom said to me, every time my dad let me down. Even through all the shitty things I did to him. He stood by me. I couldn’t fuck all that up now. Even if it was for her. Kade’s feelings for her were strong and I had to respect that. But it was hard to imagine that anyone could have stronger feelings for her than me.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074] Exclusive Excerpt:

“Do you enjoy the view?” King Edric asked. “The rains have made the gardens bloom, and it warms my heart to see it so.” “It is good to know that the gardener approves of the work.” Cyrene laughed lightly. “I have not gardened in a month’s time. I fear I can no longer call myself a gardener.” She remembered when she had told the king of her interest in gardening at the last feast day almost a week ago. After that dance, Queen Kaliana added a list of plants to her assignment, forcing her to reread every page she had already dredged through for information. It had wasted two entire days. “Perhaps I could change that,” he offered. He directed her down the staircase and into the courtyard below lit solely by the setting sun in the distance. Her stomach churned at the thought of him offering assistance to any of her needs. It was like what she had read in her children’s books of the tales of Leifs, and how one request would be necessitated by a much larger sacrifice. Her biggest sacrifice at the present moment was time. She wanted nothing more than to finish her work on agriculture and prove that she could get moved somewhere that involved traveling…and adventure. “On the contrary, My King, I am fully enthralled in my Affiliate duties, and believe that gardening would only distract me from my work.” “You cannot spare one afternoon to spend in my gardens?” His blue-gray eyes searched her face. “If you have half the green thumb you suggest, then it would be delightful to have you on the grounds.” She swallowed. “I really have much work to accomplish before we go on Processional.” “I could speak to the Queen and request it be lessened,” he whispered into the evening air. “No!” It was the first time he had ever admitted to discussing her with the Queen. Hearing him admit it aloud made her voice come out strangled. Cyrene missed her footing on the pebble path and stumbled forward a pace. Edric steadied her. He turned his body to face her in the middle of the garden, and her breath caught at the sight of him in the setting sun. “You do not wish me to speak to the Queen?” “I spoke out of turn. Please forgive me.” “I cannot forgive that which I do not understand. Did the Queen somehow offend you?” Cyrene shook her head. “I fear that the Queen does not…like me.” Edric laughed softly, taking one of her hands in his own. “Oh Cyrene, I believe that the Queen likes no one but herself.” Cyrene found that she, too, could laugh at his comment. “Now, tell me what the Queen has done to make you believe that she dislikes you.” “It’s nothing, my King.” She turned her face away from his. She couldn’t possibly tell him the real reason. “Enough to infuriate you, which is enough for me.” When she looked back up into his blue-gray eyes she felt that same magnetic pull between them. Somehow she had not realized how close they were standing. His hand felt warm against her bare skin. His body only a few inches away from her. His breath hot on her face. Her heart contracted in her chest, and she forced herself to respond. “She speaks of…of your interference, as if…as if you…” Time stretched between them, and she thought for a split second he might move even closer to her. She was rooted in place, captivated by his gaze. “Yes?” His other hand drifted to her waist, and she was suddenly on fire. Their breath mingled together as she murmured, “As if you favor me.” “And do you think that?” “I…” “Yes?” he asked, stepping closer.


“I think you have your queen,” she breathed.

Life dealt him a dead man’s hand.

Lucky had always led a life of service. Always put his life on the line for someone else, managing to survive by pure luck and skill. After bringing an end to a multi-state drug ring, he was finally able to live the life he had wanted as a Last Rider…

A good man would walk away and not touch the curvy woman who had been tugging on his heartstrings. Lucky wasn’t a good man. Therefore, the bad-ass biker in him had a choice: once again become the man he had pretended to be and stake his claim, or take the devil’s highway.


Some girls had all the luck.

Willa wasn’t one of them. All she wanted to do was give a home to the children she had made orphans. Instead, she found herself needing help from the man who had left the pulpit behind to embrace a life of sin.

Painfully shy and withdrawn she wanted a quiet life, a simple man, and well-behaved children. The last thing she had ever expected was for Lucky to want her size twenty body and show her a passion that would lead her straight to hell.
