The Alpha’s Bet: A BBW Alpha Billionaire Werewolf Romance

Genre: M/F, Paranormal, Romance

Synopsis:

Jason Irvine is an Alpha werewolf and a high roller at Diamond’s Oasis Casino in Las Vegas. BBW Carly Davis is the casino’s best card dealer.

Because Jason is classified as a “whale” and a regular guest, usually the casino lets him win some after he loses some, in order to keep him happy. Then one night Jason starts winning big – TOO big – enough to bankrupt the house. So the casino assigns Carly to his table knowing that she’s the only dealer who can stop a gambler on a dangerous winning streak.

When Jason realizes that Carly is the same Beta she-wolf that dared to turn him down during a nighttime run in nearby Red Rock Canyon, he starts losing his cool. Now he’s changed his strategy and decides to try to seduce her from right across the poker table. Meanwhile, as much as Carly starts to find him irresistible, she tries to keep her mind steady on her belief that no man as rich and powerful as Jason Irvine could ever really want a woman like her.

Before he knows it, Jason is falling in love fast and decides he is willing to give up millions just teach Carly that a woman should never turn down an Alpha. As an Alpha wolf it is his right and privilege to claim any woman he wants. So Jason tells the casino that instead of taking his $10 million in winnings, he’d rather take Carly as his prize instead.

Soon Jason is trying everything in his power to sweep Carly off her feet – even promising to make her independently wealthy as his concubine – but the she-wolf has her own agenda. Carly’s not sure that she really can trust ANY man, and she plans teach to teach the Alpha that the house always wins.

My Review: 4.5/5 Stars

Jason Irvine is the Big Kahuna, The Head Honcho. You get the point and nobody ever says no to an Alpha. Especially the Alpha of the Palm Springs Pack, until Carly said no to a claiming. Jason thought he was off his game when the Beta she wolf denied him. His night at the casino saw him winning 12 million dollars. The casino could not let that happen. So they send in their best dealer. Shockingly she is the one who denied Jason’s claim.

Jason ups the stacks and request Carly to join him in strip poker. Carly was torn, she knew if she didn’t play the game Jason would bankrupt the casino for the night and she didn’t believe that an Alpha like Jason could want a woman like her. She tried to stall as long as possible, but in the end Jason got what he wanted and he very much wanted Carly.

With Carly’s wit and being able to keep Jason on his toes, that is a combination for successes. Jason doesn’t know it yet, but he doesn’t want a woman he can walk all over. Carly is the woman for him.

There were a few typos, but nothing to dramatic. I really enjoyed this story and can’t wait to read more from Annora.

Alpha Rogue (Volume Three) by Terry Bolryder

 23609691

Alpha Rogue (Volume Three)

Genre: M/F, Paranormal, Romance

Synopsis:

Important! Alpha Rogue 3 is the third and final part in a series, please start with part 1 free here: http://www.amazon.com/Alpha-Rogue-Par…

Alpha females are super rare in Hawthorne’s world. So what’s an alpha wolf to do when he gets his heart broken and loses his chance to claim a mate, all in one day? For Hawes, with his super strength and love of adrenaline, the answer is to go rogue and join an underground fighting ring where he can beat the bad memories back, one day at a time.

Rose isn’t worried when she gets assigned to keep an eye on Hawes as part of her undercover mission. At least, she isn’t worried until she sees the pretty boy alpha for the first time in all of his muscled, sweaty glory in the ring and hears him run his mouth off after the match. Now, Rose isn’t sure she can work with the cocky, irritating Shifter at all.

But she might want to try, because her mission in the underground fighting circuit just got more dangerous, and Hawes with his unusual strength may just be the only one who can protect her.

Important Note from the author!
Alpha Rogue is a completed 3 part paranormal romance serial with a lot of action. The story is told in novella length episodes with cliffhangers, and is free through Kindle Unlimited. If you aren’t getting it that way, I’ve priced each part low enough that by the time you have purchased all parts, you’ll only have paid the price of one book (99 cents for each part). I know that this format isn’t for everyone, but I love serials and find they keep things exciting for me as a writer. I hope you enjoy if you decide to still read it.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

The last installment of the Alpha Rouge series is action packed and full of love.

In the last book Hawes and Rose decide to call it quits before someone got hurt. That didn’t stop Hawes from going through with there plan even though he didn’t need to. Hawes is fighting for his life in ring, that if he loses will mean bad things for Rose. Though he doesn’t let the match take away from his sense of humor. Rose came to realize that the reason they called it quits didn’t feel right anymore and she needed to decide if she wanted her job or Hawes more.

I really enjoyed the series and glad that I started reading it. Now I need to read Rafe and Lindon’s stories.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

 And the story continues right where it left off in the first book.

Hawes and Rose are in a secure location so they can find out who wants to kill Rose. Rose’s partner Josh comes to visit them and he doesn’t like what he sees going on between them.

It turns out that the killers don’t just want Rose, they want Hawes as well. Hawes gets a call saying they want him or they will get Rose. Hawes Rose and Josh come up with a plan to catch the killers and someone that the Tribunal have been looking for, for years.

I was a bit confused when they shifted into their wolf forms and continued to speak to each other. It was never clarified if they could mind link or if they were just talking to each other.

The chemistry between Hawes and Rose is smoking hot. The story is funny, sexy, and hot. I can’t wait to read the last book.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

 I will start off by saying that I am not a  huge fan of 1st person POV. I like to know what both MC’s are thinking when I read, with that said  Terry hits the mark on this one.

From the moment Hawes and Rose meet, you can feel the chemistry they have for each other sizzling off the pages. The story has humor, action, and wit. You will get one of the three with every page you turn. As they try to find a secure location, so they can figure out who wants Rose dead. I found a few grammatical errors, but not enough to put me off from finishing the book.

I can’t wait to read the second installment.

Blind Man’s Wolf by Amelia Faulkner

23626382

Blind Man’s Wolf (Tooth & Claw #1)

Genre: M/M Paranormal

Synopsis:

Ellis O’Neill is an art dealer with too many problems: his eyesight has deteriorated to the point of night-blindness; he’s estranged from his family, to whom he owes a considerable sum of money; and his guide dog went right off him the night Ellis died. Without his dog, Ellis is trapped in a life bouncing between home and work, dependent on his personal assistant.

Werewolf Randall Carter has problems of his own. He loves his pack, he really does, but as their Omega he’s always the one to bear the brunt of their rage. It’s a role he can’t avoid, and Randall isn’t sure he can take it for much longer, so he buries himself in his day job. Randall’s the best dog trainer in the city, and when he’s offered a client who needs him to work evenings he’d be a fool to turn it down.

Soon Randall is falling for someone he should despise. Everything about the undead is anathema to his kind, but Ellis is exactly the kind of guy Randall would want to ask out on a date – if he were still breathing. Worse, they may not have too long to figure their feelings out. Someone or something is gunning for Ellis and anyone else who gets in the way; they won’t rest until the vampire is destroyed.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

Okay, so I’m not going to lie the first few paragraph’s had me a little confused. But once I figured out that Tiberius was the dog I was good to go. The book has everything you would want. Two hot men, a werewolf, and a vampire. Though Ellis was blind he didn’t let that stop him from doing the thing he loved the most. I loved how the characters interacted with each other, how they didn’t let the things that were thrown their way stop them from being with each other. I didn’t really like Randall’s wolf pack though, I felt they didn’t treat him the way that he deserved even if he was an Omega. I loved Jay and Han just as much as I loved Ellis and Randall. I sure hope that Amelia writes a book of their beginning, if she hasn’t already. I would like to know what happened with Randall and his pack because he didn’t follow through with the order his Alpha gave him, but other than that it was a good book.
