Casee: I’m still reading and listening to what I was reading and listening to last week. It’s very sad.

I’m reading Vengeance Road by Christine Feehan and listening to Archangel’s Prophecy by Nalini Singh. We have family in town so I don’t have high hopes for reading this weekend. Wish me luck.

Holly: I had a pretty lame reading week. I’m trying to get everything ready for the holidays, plus we celebrate 4 birthdays this week, so my attention was elsewhere. I finished listening to The Christmas Cottage by Samantha Chase. It was pretty awful. The heroine and her best friend were both immature dummy-heads and the whole premise of the wedding + cottage was lame. I only finished it because I wanted to know what would happen with the best friend and her wedding. I’m sorry I wasted my time. I re-read Complicated by Kristen Ashley, the listened to Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck and Sweet Tea and Sympathy by Molly Harper, which were really cute. I’m not usually one for super light paranormals or contemporaries, but Molly Harper is really working for me lately. Both this series and the Mystic Bayou series hit me in the sweet spot.

I’m currently listening to Ain’t She a Peach by Molly Harper. I’m not sure what I’m going to read next, or if I’ll even have time. Hopefully I’ll have all day Saturday to read. Fingers crossed.

Rowena: In the week since I last posted about what I was reading, I had planned to listen to Archangel’s Storm by Nalini Singh, and read Save the Date by Carrie Aarons and well, that didn’t happen. Instead, I picked up My Best Friend’s Ex by Hazel Kelly and Friends with Benefits by Hazel Kelly. I enjoyed both books, though I enjoyed Friends with Benefits more. Carter and Nina were a fantastic couple! Now, I’m reading Save the Date by Carrie Aarons and though the heroine is a little hard to take (I really don’t understand her motivations behind some of her decisions), I’m still enjoying the read. After this, I’ll be picking up River Marked by Patricia Briggs because I can’t stay away from Mercy’s world for too long. I’m on a mission to be all caught up on that series before the year ends. Wish me luck!

WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

Casee: I just finished Alpha and Omega, which is the prequel to Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs. I started Cry Wolf last night and am really enjoying it so far. These are two of the books Holly picked for me in the Summer Reading Challenge. I’ve been really lucky with most of the books Holly and Rowena picked for me so I almost feel bad that Holly hated disliked Raphael by D.B. Reynolds. (H: You should feel bad for the JRW book. Shudder)

Holly: I did a lot of re-reading this week. I didn’t have a lot of dedicated reading time and I prefer re-reads when I know I own’t be able to focus. I re-read Play it Safe, Complicated, The Time in Between and Wild Man by Kristen Ashley and The Hook Up by Kristen Callihan. The only new-to-me book I read this week was The Chase by Elle Kennedy. I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would, but it was really good to get back to Briar U.

I’m currently listening to When a Scot Ties the Knot by Tessa Dare. I fell behind in my Tessa Dare reading during my historical hiatus. I’m excited I have so many of her books to look forward to.

Rowena: This week, I finished up Midnight Rainbow by Linda Howard and really enjoyed that one even though it’s hella dated and then I read The Other Side of Lost by Jessi Kirby and enjoyed that one too. The Other Side of Lost made me cry but boy did it also make me take stock of my life and how I’m living. It was a great coming of age novel by Jessi Kirby and I’m super glad that I read it.

Now, I’m reading Down with Love by Kate Meader and I’m not far into it but I’m looking forward to getting it read so that I can keep chugging along on my review pile. I’m so behind and I’m scrambling to keep up. Wish me luck!

A legendary warrior of stone who strikes fear in her heart―and fire in her soul…

WELCOME TO ALPHAVILLE, where the she-wolves and alpha-males play. . .for keeps.

Renny Landry is a wolf on the run. Pursued by a shapeshifting stalker and his slobbering pack of killer coyotes, she is forced to flee her job as a librarian to find sanctuary in the wooded hills of Alpha, Washington. A well-secluded safe space for troubled shifters, Alpha is Renny’s last hope. But the first person she meets there is a gorgeous alpha male with fiery eyes, fierce tattoos, and one ferocious appetite—for her…

Mick Fischer thought he left his past behind when he moved to Alpha. But fate has a way of biting him in the tail when a female wolf shows up on his property. Wounded, desperate—and disarmingly hot—Renny brings out the snarling, protective alpha beast in Mick like no other woman he’s known. Can these two haunted, hunted wolves manage to mate for life…even as the deadliest past demons howl at their heels?

Renny is on the run from a pack of coyote’s when her car breaks down.  She’s so close to her destination of Alphaville but she ends up having to make a run for it.  She shifts to her wolf and takes off.  She’s almost caught when she is saved by Mick Fischer.  He’s a wolf shifter as well and surprise, surprise, her mate.

Mick Fischer had a mate but she was murdered 8 years previously.  He has no idea why he is still alive as so often mates follow one another into death.  When he meets Renny he knows why he’s still alive – to be with her.  He’s determined to keep this mate safe despite the psycho that’s after her.

Mick and all of Alphaville step into the help Renny with her coyote problem, which she thinks is great but feels guilty about anyway.  She meets lots of new people and gets her dream job – she loves Alphaville!  She just wishes that she could figure out if Mick loves her for her or only because they are destined mates.

This was a cute paranormal romance story.  It was pretty standard stuff but it was cute, none-the-less.

I can’t say that I loved Renny, but I did admire the strength it took her to keep running from the psycho who wanted her for himself. Mick was kind of your stoic, protective mate who wouldn’t let anyone hurt Renny.  I liked the book, but I did wish we’d gotten more romance and less hunting for coyotes.

There were some secondary characters that got my attention in this story, and I’ll be reading more of the Alphaville series just to read about them.

Rating: 3 out of 5
