Chelsea is smart, funny, gorgeous, and the best friend I’ve ever had. Ever since she left, I’ve been a wreck. I’ve been focused on keeping my family’s MMA gym afloat while I train and coach fighters, anything to not miss her more. But now she’s finally back, along with her grumpy, possessive cat, and things are weird between us.
By weird, I mean I can’t stop thinking about her in that way. She’s in the room next door, and it takes all my control not to storm in there, sweep her up, and bring her back to my bed. Even stranger, I’m pretty sure she’d be into it.
And this time, I’m not going to stop fighting until we’re more.
Each book in the Fighting for Her series is STANDALONE:
* Until You’re Mine
* Until We’re More

It was a great journey through Emma James’ Hell’s Bastard series. I have a little mixed feelings about the last book, hence “only” four stars, but it was a great book nonetheless. Finally, Whisper and Edge find their way to each other, something the reader has been waiting for through the first four books. A real plus point here, because I’m not a fan of insta-love, and Emma did a great job at making those two work real hard to find their happiness and overcome their past. As I already pointed out in my reviews for the other books, I love her writing style and the way she puts her thoughts into words. As an author who’s just starting out, I learned a lot from her. She has that “show, don’t tell” down to an art.
What annoyed me a bit were the repetitions. Something happens and is told from Edge’s POV, then Boxer (who made furious at some points with his constant concerns and his hate for Edge) tells the same story from his POV, and then you get to hear the same thing from Whisper again. It made the story drag sometimes and the book longer than necessary. One point deduction also for Emma’s struggle with quotation marks that are misplaced a lot in the book and seriously confused me at some points, but that’s just a matter of editing and has no impact on the story.
All things considered, I enjoyed the series and will put her other books on my to-read list 😉 Thanks Emma, for the entertainment!

Award-winning author Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals series continues with a woman on a quest to be the heroine of her own story and the duke in shining armor she rescues along the way…
New York City socialite and perpetual hot mess Portia Hobbs is tired of disappointing her family, friends, and—most importantly—herself. An apprenticeship with a struggling swordmaker in Scotland is a chance to use her expertise and discover what she’s capable of. Turns out she excels at aggravating her gruff silver fox boss…when she’s not having inappropriate fantasies about his sexy Scottish burr.
Tavish McKenzie doesn’t need a rich, spoiled American telling him how to run his armory…even if she is infuriatingly good at it. Tav tries to rebuff his apprentice—and his attraction to her—but when Portia accidentally discovers that he’s the secret son of a duke, rough-around-the-edges Tav becomes her newest makeover project.
Forging metal into weapons and armor is one thing, but when desire burns out of control and the media spotlight gets too hot to bear, can a commoner turned duke and his posh apprentice find lasting love?
Another great book by author Emma James. Book4 Entwined was even better than Book3 Contorted because finally, finally, Whisper is found and the enemy defeated (at least, they think so). I was already getting super impatient after it took Emma 3 whole books for Edge to find Whisper and get her out of her hell safely. To be honest, I think she prolonged the inevitable a little too long, and I already feared I’d have to wait for the end of Book 5 and more enemies would come. I like how Emma handles all these different POV’s. It’s already a challenge to write from the 2 different POV’s but writing from so many and including them into the storyline so flawlessly requires some serious talent. I also like how she can put personality into each character and give them each an agenda. Sometimes, I got seriously confused with all these names and new people, e.g. when Phoenix told Whisper all about her friends and family. Not sure if this was just a “text filler” as it wasn’t really important to the storyline.
Anyway, great book, gorgeous series, already bought the last one!

Salvation, Pennsylvania. The commune located in the small town was advertised as a modern Utopia: a place to live, share, and learn with other like-minded young people. Cate Pendleton’s sister was one of them. Now she’s dead—and Cate won’t rest until she finds out who killed her. Stonewalled at every turn, she approaches a DC Fixer for help and ends up with Damon Knox, a mysterious man with a secretive past. But Cate soon discovers that she not only needs Damon, she wants him, which isn’t good—for the attraction brewing between them will only lead to complications that can turn into danger . . .
Damon has tried to erase the hellish memories and the evil that happened in Salvation ever since he left a long time ago. Still, he can’t turn his back on Cate. As Damon works with Cate to uncover her sister’s killer, he finds himself drawn to her more and more. But how will she feel about him when she learns about his connection to the place?
Joining forces to uncover the truth, they must stay one step ahead of a cunning killer who’s bent on not being exposed.

I am not a hero, Cate.” He tried to pull away.
She held on, resting their joined hands against her chest. “Never said you were. You’re a flesh and blood man.”
And this close, she could smell the soap on his skin and see the darker streaks in his green eyes.
“Very much so.” His breath seemed to hiccup.
“So . . .”
When his voice trailed off she got a taste of what it felt like to have someone drop the end of important sentences like she often did. But she didn’t think he tried it or that he was playing games.
“Now you’re the one who should finish the sentence.” Her voice came out in a breathy whisper.
“We’re in a tense situation. Stress sometimes disguises itself as something else.”
The words crashed into her brain, wiping out every other thought. She pulled back a bit, but kept holding his hand. “What are you talking about?”
His gaze traveled over her face now, landing on her mouth. “How much I want to kiss you.”

If Buffy and Angel could have banged without him going all evil, then we would have had Wilomena Bastion.
Dragons suck, like literally suck the life out of you if you let them. Trick is not to look them directly in the eyes, like ever. So, the day Wila finds herself staring into the most dangerous Draconi’s pretty, emerald peepers, she knows she’s royally fucked.
No one said saving a bunch of kids from being served up as treats to the dragon liege was going to be easy. Options are limited—immediate execution or servitude, and Wila prefers to have her head remain firmly on her shoulders.
Now, the self-professed dark avenger must work to bring down a resistance of demons hell-bent on making life difficult for the dragon liege. And, if that wasn’t bad enough, her new position comes with a partner, the dragon liege’s favoured demon enforcer; a creature of fire, fury and washboard abs who—let’s face it—is just gonna cramp her style.
With the help of a ghostly receptionist, a talking dog and the thing that lives in the basement, Wila will be forced to take on a most dangerous task. It looks like some serious brooding is on the menu, because for the first time in forever, Wila isn’t sure she’s up to the job.
A city filled with monsters needs a woman who can kick ass, and Wilomena Bastion is just the gal for the job.
A kick-ass urban fantasy with a slow burn reverse harem romance.

My name is Synthia Rowley, and so far I really suck at saving the world.
I’m a latent shifter, a human that magically transformed into a hyena Queen. Crazy, right? You have no idea. When I turned twenty-five some magical chastity belt that had been completely blocking my sex drive snapped. One minute I was the ultimate shy science dork, the next I had curves that kill and a libido that won’t quit.
Good thing, ‘cause I’m supposed to have four husbands.
Yep, four. I’m destined to marry them all and they were all born to love me and only me. My own little harem. Here comes the really insane part. My husbands? The four men that I’ll be mated to for the rest of my life? They were born female and my pheromones will turn them into men. You heard me right, my hyena Queen pheromones will literally change my mates from women, into hulked out sexy studs. But if I don’t find and transform my mates, and soon, my world and everyone in it will be slaughtered by demons from a different dimension.

After diving into Wrenched, Book#1 in the Hell’s Bastard series, I was immediately sucked into the story and bought Warped, Book#2 right away. The story gets more complex in this book, and a lot of characters come into play. What I like about Emma’s style are the different POV’s she uses. It’s pretty hard to do that, especially if you try to do it for those who are not the main characters in the book, but Emma did a great job here. You read from Miss C’s POV who is the old lady with the funny, southern accent, and who is like a mother to Whisper. Then you read from Edge’s POV who is the cold-hearted killer, son of the man who ruined Whispers entire life with holding her hostage for twenty years, now finding himself trying to rescue the girl he intended to kill in the first place. And then you read from Jonathan Boothe’s POV, the corrupt lawyer who is, if possible, way more evil than William Dupré was. I love how every character has their own angle and agenda. Everyone always has a goal, and it’s always interesting to read who’s going to meet whom next.
Read Book2 in 2 days which is saying something considering I have a full-time job and a part-time job as an author :D Already bought Book3!
I got a free copy of Wrenched and it collected dust on my Kindle for a few weeks before I started reading. It’s the first book I’ve read from Emma James, I was really surprised how good it was. MC Romances tend to be all the same, and there weren’t many by now who captured me like this one. I love Emma’s writing style. It has that personal touch that makes it easy to think and feel what the characters think and feel.
She’s done a great job at describing Whisper’s horrible life that she had to endure for the last two decades. At some points, it was a little too much telling how insecure she felt because the same thing was written from different POVs which made the middle drag a little bit in my opinion, but the story took off again in a direction I hadn’t expected.
The storyline is something I haven’t read in another book yet which was quite refreshing. I hadn’t seen it coming that William’s lawyer would be the next villain in the story, and I loved that twist in events. Also, the sex scene on the bike was one hell of a read. I even read it twice, it was that good.
This book is very, very dark, something I tend to stay away from because there are a lot of authors who try to put the darkest and most sinister things in a book just to make it more interesting. I can imagine it’s hard to get acceptance from everyone. Emma did a great job here and made it quite realistic and believable. I haven’t bought a Book2 in a series for a long time, but I’ll definitely dive into Warped.
It’s not relevant for the story, but I also loved the interior design. The headline images were beautiful and fit each character.
