Review: THE SHADOWS by J.R. Ward

In The Shadows by J.R. Ward, Trez and iAm, twin brothers from the S’Hisbe tribe have been on the run for years. Trez was sold by his parents shortly after his birth to the Queen of the tribe after it was determined that the stars said he would become the Anointed One to the Princess. Trez doesn’t want to be forced into a mating he doesn’t want and eventually the twins escape the palace and end up in Caldwell, New York as part of Rehv’s entourage. Trez and iAm know that they are running out of time before the Shadows come after him. When Trez falls in love with a Chosen and bonds  with her, all bets are off. With the backing of the Brothers and the Sympaths, can Trez remain a free man?

21849362I am a certified fan girl of The Warden ‘s. I have been known to talk about the series for hours  (I even once spent an entire flight to Atlanta, Georgia  discussing the series with my seat mate when she said she had read it). Vishous became one of my first book boyfriends before I even knew what the term was.

I wasn’t sure how much I would like this book because the twins are not one of my favorites.  They’ve always been in the background as part of Rehv’s muscle,  doing the dirty work when needed. It is hard to like Trez, who up until the last book had slept around and runs a prostitution ring out of his clubs. iAm was a bit more likeable at least with his protective streak towards Trez and having a more respectable job of running am Italian restaurant.

Review: TAMING THE LEGEND by Kat Latham

In Taming The Legend by Kat Latham, Retiring rugby player, Ash Trenton has had a long and storied  career. Wanting to leave on a positive note before his aging body lets  him down,  Ash retires after the World Cup. At his retirement party he is shocked to run into Camila Morales, his first lover. Camila desperately needs his help to save the camp she runs in California for troubled teens. Camila convinces Ash to to come and coach an all girls rugby team to play in the San Diego Sevens. Ash isn’t prepared for coaching troubled teens and he definitely isn’t prepared for falling back in love with Camila. When a perfect career opportunity arises for Ash, will he accept it and leave the woman he loves?

24920801I sound like a broken record but I enjoy this series so much. Latham has a knack for creating amazing characters and storylines. When I am reading one of her books I keep swiping for the next page, promising myself I will stop after the current chapter ends and then I realize I have lied to myself and several hours have gone by.

Ash and Camila are the classic star crossed lovers but Latham keeps that trope fresh with her own spin on it. The couple initially met in Barcelona, while both were on vacation.  The young teenagers become lovers, fall in love, and promise to remain in contact forever and ever. When Camila writes Ash though,  her letters get returned.  Ash decides that Camila has moved on and focuses on his rugby career.

In One Night With Her Bachelor by Kat Latham, Molly Dekker is a single mom, who decides to have some “me time” while  her young son goes on a Scouting trip. Molly hikes to Gabriel Morales’ s secluded cabin intent on seducing him. Gabriel, a former Air Force pararescuer, is fighting his own demons after having witnessed the death of his best friend. He doesn’t want or need anyone, especially Molly who is his BFF’S sister.  A tragic accident leaves Molly’s son paralyzed interrupting any seduction that might have occurred. Now Molly is struggling to make ends meet as the medical bills continue to mount. Her best friend organizes a bachelor auction to help raise money and Molly is floored when her son “buys” Gabriel for her.

25116964I swear anything Kat Latham writes is pure gold. It doesn’t matter if she’s writing about the London Legends or a rural town in Montana. Her writing draws you in and doesn’t let you go until the very last page. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Molly and Gabriel. There was a lot of tension that built up before anything happened. When it finally did happen, I was surprised my Kindle didn’t melt.
