Blog Tour: Fallen For Shame by Anna Edwards

Today I am thrilled to share with you the fun stuff about this stunning shifter romance Fallen For Shame by Anna Edwards

I was thrilled when I was asked to read this book and give an honest review. I always get a kick out of shifter love and this book was unique and fun. Although I do wish I had had the opportunity to read the first two books first, just due to certain circumstances surrounding this pack and the villain that is trying to destroy their alpha and his own brother.

Our key players in this delicious tale are:

  • Teagan Holland, is our lovely heroine, who is clumsy and quirky, she is an Asiatic wild dog and has been looking for her “place” and a pack she can call home and that will accept her for who she is.
  • Tyler Quinn, is haunted by dreams of the past, a drug addiction, a bit nerdy with his love of computers but is kind and protective.

I truly enjoyed seeing this pair come together. As much as I love shifter romance, sometimes the whole alpha pairings can get a bit old at times. So I was so thrilled when this book was SO Not the case. This is more of a beta pair, two people that have quite unique personalities. They really fit so well together. Both of them are struggling emotionally on different levels. I truly adored the hero though, seeing him work through his past, an enemy that is using his weakness in the past for drugs, and his quiet yet strong character that continues to shine through. I love how much of a fighter he is. Now our heroine was so FUN!! I just loved her so much. I felt like I could relate to her so much. She is always falling on her feet, being clumsy but has a fun character. She definitely made the book so light and carefree at times.

We become introduced to the other members of this diverse pack with lions, witches and bears…oh my!!! Yep they were fun and so quirky. You can definitely tell how different they all are but quite endearing in many ways. I just wanted to grab up the previous books to get the low down on these characters that made me smile.

Now the cons to the story….there aren’t many, but enough that kept me from rating this book higher. Now don’t get me wrong, I definitely enjoyed this book, it’s a story you can relax into. First off, I wish the ARC I had been sent, was one where I could have changed the text. It wasn’t your normal font you normally see and it really kept me from really enjoying the book fully because it was so distracting. And the romance between Teagan and Tyler fell a bit flat for me. I love a strong focus on the romance of the story, and I just didn’t connect with them as much as I wanted to or was expecting to.

Now that being said, I want to say that this book is a quick and fast read, its shorter than most novels, so that could be a factor to is that at times it did have a feeling of being a bit “too rushed” however there are so many positive qualities to the story that pulls at the readers attention. I really became sucked into this world of diverse shifters, unique politics and a villain that was downright demented and I want to see him get his “end”

Overall I found Fallen For Shame a stunning and heart-stopping tale…..a story that takes you through the woods of Montana, a unique take on shape shifters and one you don’t want to miss out on!!

Book Review-Dangerous Mating by Milly Taiden

Dangerous Mating is a thrilling, on the edge of your seat excitement that takes you under the caves of Nazi tunnels in Germany, with a crazy villain and a fated mates theme that will pull you under into this sensual love tale…

Dangerous Mating is the third book in the latest series by Milly Taiden. I have had the opportunity to read this author over the past few years and have enjoyed her work. She is very quick to read, her writing is highly engaging, I never want to put her books down and they aren’t too overly long which is nice at times. Our important key players in the book are:

  • Bryon Day, an agent for the A.L.F.A. organization, a hidden military organization, with shifter agents who solve crimes. Bryon, while undercover, finds himself captured and being tortured and drugged with no way out.
  • Kari Tomlin, is an FBI agent and a specialist in cryptography, and she is asked to go into field work in Germany and she is more than thrilled. Not realizing that her life is about to change.

Dangerous Mating is a story that had me on the edge of my seat and I didn’t want to let go. I really had a blast with this book, probably a bit more than I expected. I will say that this book isn’t too deep, it’s really just fun and carefree despite the hints of danger and suspense that this story is riddled with. It is a story of instant love and fated mates, so if that is not your thing, not sure you would enjoy this book. However, if you are like me, where these tropes aren’t a problem then you will get a kick out of these two. Both Bryon and Kari are entertaining, have great senses of humor and act on their instincts. Bryon is a wolf shifter, and his people only mate once and still hasn’t found his mate. Kari is human, but she does know about shifters since she had a good friend who was mated with one. Ever since she has admired that type of connection these “mates” have with each other. When she goes undercover and ends up embroiled in a dangerous plot and the man that she is searching for is being drugged and held prisoner. She comes up with a plan to save him only to be on the run, hiding out in tunnels trying to make it to safety before the “demented prince”, the villain of the story, finds them. As they crawl through caves, trying to get a way out, they both realize pretty quickly what a connection they have and that they are mates.

I’ve gotten to know you, Kari. Not just your scent branded on my brain, but you. Inside and out. Whether you want to admit it or not, you are mine. MINE. My mate. Now and for always. But I can’t do anything about that alone. I need you.

What I really loved about this couple is how comfortable they are with each other. So at ease, always teasing each other, playing and boy can they KISS!! I felt like I was on fire. They definitely have some powerful chemistry both sexually and NOT. Which was quite wonderful to see. We see that even though they do have some great chemistry, they also become good friends and it truly brings a great balance to the story. Now I will say that the heroine really was so FUN. Seriously, her personality is one that you would want to be friends with. She may not be a field agent but she can kick ass when she needs to and I loved her spunk. Some of her stunts, I was like she is so crazy and I LOVE her for it. She has such a compassionate heart and will do anything to save innocent women and children being sold on the market.

I want you, Kari. Forever. Let me have you.

There isn’t much drama except for the plot lines with them being hunted and all. But as far as their relationship goes, it was smooth sailing which was quite refreshing. They just instantly are drawn to each other and they don’t fight what they feel for each other, only embrace and accept it for what it is. A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!!
