Her Lone Wolf

Her Lone Wolf by Paige Tyler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Before I gush about this book. I would like to say thank to Ms. Paige Tyler for following my Twitter account. I felt really good because one of the authors that I am currently reading follows me…As an amateur book reviewer, it feel really nice.

Okay, enough said!

When it comes to shifter romance, wolves got the best deal, because they only have one mate…and the connection they would always be beyond anyone’s comprehension.

That sentence is the best way to describe my feeling s when it comes to this book. As much as I like to hate Clayne, I can’t. He maybe an a**hole but there will always be a reason behind every actions and his was justified by the back flash during the whole story. The combination of the past happening and their present situation was…

This is the Second book of Heart of the Wolf series by Terry Spear. In this series there are only two kind of wolf shifters: The Reds and The Gray. As far as I can tell, both side are opposed to marrying each other’s kind.

~But then again Fate has other ideas.

As the story kicks off, we are present by two individuals that share the same DNA, twins and one of them was murdered or she killed herself.

Or so they thought, hence the search began. Which includes, deaths, guns and going inside an abandon silver mine…aside from that, families reunite and love is found.

I thought I wasn’t going to like this one, that it would be like book one. Then again, we should never judge a series by the first book.

I like how it comes together, the aspect in which the book originally started was really good. I was shocked when the characters form the previous books was mentioned even. Never thought that they were connected somehow.

Over all, I enjoyed reading this one. This book presented another side of my beloved PNR series.  A different sets of myth. And I am slowing warming up with the idea.

I hope that book three would continue keeping me hyped!

Till next time!

Kill Without Mercy (ARES Security #1)

Image Posted on

From the hellhole of a Taliban prison to sweet freedom, five brave military heroes have made it home—and they’re ready to take on the civilian missions no one else can. Individually they’re intimidating. Together they’re invincible. They’re the men of ARES Security.

Rafe Vargas is only in Newton, Iowa, to clear out his late grandfather’s small house. As the covert ops specialist for ARES Security, he’s eager to get back to his new life in Texas. But when he crosses paths with Annie White, a haunted beauty with skeletons in her closet, he can’t just walk away—not when she’s clearly in danger…

There’s a mysterious serial killer on the loose with a link to Annie’s dark past. And the closer he gets, the deeper Rafe’s instinct to protect kicks in. But even with his considerable skill, Annie’s courage, and his ARES buddies behind him, the slaying won’t stop. Now it’s only a matter of time before Annie’s next—unless they can unravel a history of deadly lies that won’t be buried.

As a series Junkie, i always look for a new series to add to my TBR pile. And knowing that one of my favorite authors was about to release a new series, i took a chance at NetGalley if they could permit me to read her book.

~And then they said “Request Accepted”.

I was so happy at that time, I never thought that they would permit me to read the book above but it was worth it!


I knew Ms. Ivy as a great PNR author, I love reading her Guardians of Eternity Series and the Newest PNR Which is the Sentinels.  I am actually waiting for Netgalley for her books ~ just in case I am given another chance to review her books again.

As for this new series, all i can say is “Bravo!”.

The story line is simple and clean. There are no unexpected turn ~at least on this book, I don’t know about the rest of the series~ and it is well written.

As for the characters their personality is well written, even the ones that have not their own book, you would really anticipate what will happen to them. The dynamics on how well they blend together made this book so appealing to me.

But let us not forget the romance behind it. As i have said simple and clean, the same applies with the love story between the two characters. Rafe straightforwardness is so refreshing and Annie reluctance matches the each others vibe. The blending of the two made a really good love plot that is swoon worthy.


Yes, the three little words are not mentioned, but is that the only was to express devotion and love to someone.

As I have said,  this is one series I would watch out for. I cannot wait to read the next one!
