My Commander by Alanea Alder- 5 billion stars!!!!!!

My Commander, Alanea Alder
So far, my favorite read of the year! The latest book in this series came out this past April and I have been dying to start it. Immediately after I finished the first book I went online and ordered the rest. This book was phenomenal. I could not stop laughing from beginning to end. It had the utmost perfect balance between humor and romance. The perfect pnr! 
I seriously cannot recommend this enough and cannot wait for the other books in this series to arrive.

Here is the Blurb:
In book one you meet our delicious Alpha Unit leader Aiden McKenzie. When the topic of grandchildren comes up during a weekly sewing circle the matriarchs of the founding families seek out the witch Elder to scry to see if their sons have mates. They are shocked to discover that many of their sons' mates are out in the world and are human!

Fearing that their future human daughters-in-law will end up dead before being claimed and providing them with grandchildren to spoil, they convince their own mates that something must be done. After gathering all of the warriors together in a fake award ceremony the witch Elder casts a spell to pull the men’s mates to them, whether they want it or not.

Aiden is adamant that he doesn’t need a mate and that they would only get in the way, little does he realize Fate is sending him his mate first! He meets his destined mate Meryn Evans and things go downhill from there. In the first twenty four hours she kicks, screams and knocks her bear shifting mate unconscious. They eventually discover that life before finding each other may have been good, but life afterwards is perfect, even if it involves super soaker battles and accidentally discharging hand grenades.
 


5 stars ain't enough :)

So, lets start with our girl, Meryn. OMG! She was fabulous! The girl had a big mouth and knew exactly what to say to get what she wanted. She is geeky and eccentric but she is also fierce and on point. An introvert and a trouble maker wrap up in one. No one could have one up on her, even less the fearsome strong Alpha Unit Commander. He was at a lost with our firecracker.

"You locked her in the trunk?!" "She was kicking me." Aiden protested. "She is human and half your size!" "You don't understand, she is a terrorist!"- Aiden's mom and Aiden

Aiden was perfection. The shifter of my dreams. I want one. Pretty please! LOL
He is the perfect combo of overpowering, strong, demanding, possessive male and a caring, loving and protective mate. He doesn't understand woman or relationships, even less a human one (which made the single funniest thing I ever read in my life!). But he tried, all the way he tried everything in his power to make her happy. It was adorable!


"You're so cute." She smiled up at him. Aiden was glad to see that the traces of fear were gone. He frowned 

down at her. "I am not cute. I am a ferocious killing machine. Paranormals everywhere tremble before me." "My teddy bear." She pulled on his shirt until he was bent down enough to reach her lips and kissed him. He looked over to see Colton about to say something. "Not a motherfucking word." He warned.


This was one of the funniest books I have ever read. I was -SERIOUSLY- almost peeing myself in the couch while reading this. The drama, the angst, the paranormal elements... everything about this book was perfectly done.

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan .
