It feels like forever since the last book. We've been waiting a long time for Ellie and Caleb's story. I wasn't disappointed! I laughed and cried and got a few surprises! You know...I almost feel bad for Ray...almost. Take someone who doesn't know a thing about babies and throw him in with 3 triplets who can now shift into cubs. Still though he did kidnap them but they literally drove him nuts. I'm thinking mental institution. 🙂 Oh...lets not forget Tristan giving his sons' and son-in-law advice about what our words "fine" or "nothing" means among other phrases us women use. They were writing it down in their smart phones. Ha. On a serious note I know Caleb made the wrong choice in keeping Ellie, his mate and wife out of the pack politics. I understand his reasoning and so does Ellie. Even Caleb realized at the end he should have included her. An alpha is stronger wiht his mate. I love how she never gave up and she was more or less putting her foot down and helping him no matter what. Now, we learn some really horrific things and I wont give that away. Just know that Rocco's reign is over.

Technically she could just wrap the series and end it here. However, I know a lot of us would like to know what will happen with Aria and Travon and lets not forget Lettie, Nicole's sister. She could do a whole other series with those about the vampire covens or add it to the Sassy Mates series. Lettie is from the Las Vegas area so perhaps a different series or something for her. I am anxious to find out!

Ellie Wolf , fiercely loyal, sexy ,sassy and little sister to the Wolfe boys. She has known her destined mate was Caleb Rahound. But with all the danger that surrounds them,she just had to wait in the wings. But NO! Not Ellie-
Caleb Rahound, was a man on a mission to reclaim his pack and keep one feisty woman safe , boy is that a taxing job . First he had to dispense with his uncle's tyranny – topping Rocco at all cost.
The mystery of Caleb's father's death is addressed. What's more the entire family is not safe .we are catching up with Aria and the ancients (vampires). We see Ellie come into her own. Repercussions threaten couples, tensions are rising.. As the time goes on the Wolfe family realizes the boys are born alphas and Ellie prove she is every bit the alpha female and alphas mate. It's time to leave to forge new lives. Doors open and close but we once again brought into one of the best series out there, Milly Taiden continues to delight and enchant us with her stories. Sassy Mates,shows us the ultimate family dynamics,what you would to for family and pack. It is one of the most endearing and sexsational series Milly has done. First rate writing,the level of creativity is unsurpassed. More possibilities,this is a five star read, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a fabulous series.

Sometimes even knowing your mate doesn't guarantee a smooth transition. Growing up Ellie knew Caleb was hers but life and challenges are destined to seperate these two lovepups....literally. Caleb is uprooted from his rightful station by his uncle. The pack deteriorates into its own chaotic mess. Can Ellie help him right his family? Still yet...will Caleb allow her?

The journey for these two isn't an easy one. It's full of challenges and fights...upside and downs....love and loss. Every element needed to make this story the rocking sassy adventure it is!

Milly never disappoints and always chalks a book full of thrills (in and out of the bedroom)! Another hot and completely satisfying read from the mistress of sexiness! I went to sleep completely satisfied from the exquisite journey I went on!! I cannot wait for the next book!!

Fighting for her Mate
Shape Shifter Paranormal Romance Sassy Mates Book 5
by Milly Taiden
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have never enjoyed reading a book so much. The storyline is Magnificent. The dialogue is hilarious, scorching hot and make you laugh so hard that my husband wanted to know what was I reading. Milly Taiden a master at writing. I wanted to tell every reader I know that you just have to read this book. Milly is so creative, talented and entertaining. This is one of the best addition to a series I have read. There is a scene that made me laugh so hard I cried. I know if you have read any of Milly's books then you know she is one of the best storyteller's you have read. Her books are fast pace, funny, a great flow and well written. I was so excited to read book 5 Fighting for her mate. If you haven't read the other four books in this series you should you will enjoy them. I must copy of a small part of the book for you to laugh about the Wolf son are mated but only Nath and Karla have triplets. I have to say if you don't think this is Brilliant you have never changed a baby diaper! HAHAHA

( This part was copied just to make you laugh )

Excerpts:
The critical moment was just ahead. The success or failure of Operation S***ty No More depended on his next move. Slowly, carefully, he lifted the front section of the diaper and pulled it away.
He saw the enemy. Ewww. S***. S*** was the enemy. Don’t throw up. Don’t throw up. Seconds mattered. Don’t throw up. He pulled the diaper up (don’t throw up) and into the trash bag with one sweeping motion. He quickly tied a knot in the bag and tossed it into the hallway. Enemy camp destroyed. Mission complete.
The first part of the operation had been a success. But the enemy clung to the baby’s skin. Ewww. Don’t throw up.
Ray shed the thick yellow gloves and turned the tub handles to get the right temperature of water. Removing the handheld nozzle for the showerhead, he pushed the knob to redirect the water flow from faucet to hose. A soft rain pattered over the tub’s drain. He aimed the hose toward the naked baby now giggling harder. It seemed the warm droplets tickled. The two others on the floor laughed probably because the infected body in the tub did.
After the enemy was washed away, he put the handheld head into its holder.

This is a must read and I didn't even tell you about Ellie and Caleb story but I know if you read the excerpt you will want to read this book just to fine about what happens to Ray and the babies. This is a Fantastic Read. If you are looking for a Spectacular paranormal book then you need to read this book and the entire series. You can't miss this awesome book or series! This is also a magnificent book to add to your TBR list. I'm felt so good about this series that I'm excited and anxious to read the next book this series. I highly recommend this book and series.

If you believe in the world of paranormal romance, the possibilities are endless and fascinating!

Book Reviews from Last Week

Her Mad Dragon by Julia Mills

One lone dragon pulled from his mountain to save the clan he’s sworn fealty to and the only family he’s ever known.

One Grand Priestess, the most magical witch of her time, the leader of her kind, and a survivor of torture.

Two powerful beings, blessed by the Goddess, destined by the Universe… a couple unlike any other.

Can their combined magic, all the love that they have and a faith in all they hold dear be enough to defeat the evil that’s sworn to destroy them all?

How Are You Doing?

During this pandemic, my local ABC station has been playing a commercial that features this statement. Asked by different news staff, the emphasis changes from person to person. The point being that we can all get through this pandemic, together.

If you read Sunday’s post, then you are aware that my oldest daughter has been diagnosed with Covid-19. We both have Amazon’s Echo Shows, so I was checking in with her to see how she was doing. In doing so, I was reminded of another couple who are friends of ours.

Rebel Wolf by Anna Lowe

Sophie Wilkins — bookworm and smoothie chef extraordinaire — has moved to Maui for a reminder of all the beauty and love in the world. And love is what she gets from shy, retiring, and utterly gorgeous man she meets. Chase is everything her lonely heart has ever yearned for. He’s mysterious too, with a raw, animal intensity that appeals to a wild side she never knew she had.

Healing of the Wolf by Cherise Sinclair

A decade in captivity tore away all hope.

But Margery never lost her resolve to help the sick. The village she’d hoped to serve as banfasa, caring for the ill and injured, is long gone. Humans captured the young shifters and killed the adults. Finally rescued, she has a chance at her dreams—at least for meaningful work. With her leg crippled and her face scarred, she knows she has no hope of ever finding love.

Starfighter Training Academy. It was just a game. The newest, hottest video game release of the year. Choose a role. Build the perfect hero who joins you on missions to save the Vega star system from the evil Queen Raya and her merciless Dark Fleet.

Wolf Unleashed by Heather Long

Change swept through the packs of North America, leaving in its wake seven packs where once only five stood. Old enemies still lurk, past hatreds fester, and the shadow of invaders linger. The challenge of diplomacy, evaluating the old laws, and instituting the new ones falls squarely on the shoulders of the pack Seconds. It’s a whole new world, and what took so long to construct…remains vulnerable.

It can happen anywhere.

Face it folks, when we are watching the evening news and they show neighborhoods where there has been some kind of crime, our first reaction is “that would never happen in my neighborhood.” It’s just human nature to assume that nothing bad ever happens around us. The truth is, it does.

I live in a very quiet neighborhood. The most exciting thing to happen here is when a nearby street was closed for repaving, and all the traffic was rerouted on to our street. This led to a lot more speeding than we normally see. Then this morning, something else occurred.

As I turned the corner from our trailer park on to the street, I was greeted with the sight of police tape across the street at the bike trail and the street was filled with police cars. Both from the city I live in, and the one that starts on the other side of the street. Now this was decidedly not a normal occurrence!

An admittedly nosy question to a police officer  yielded the story that it was still an active crime scene. For me, that was enough said. As I turned to go down the trail, a young woman who could barely keep herself together, walked up. She was a family member, and my heart hurt for her.

As I took Coco on her second walk. I noticed that the police presence had reduced. A question to the volunteer you see in this photo got me the information that the other officers had been sent home to get some sleep. In other words, this crime started sometime during the night. As I said before, this is a quiet area. Our peace had been shattered.

As the morning went on, other police officers arrived. Here’s the police photographer taking shots down the street.

The Mobile Command Center was a surprise. The local NBC affiliate was there talking with people. Surprisingly, a crew from Telemundo News was there. I didn’t know the family who was involved, but the Spanish crew was a wonderful addition

The next time you are tempted to think that crime couldn’t touch your neighborhood, think again. Look at the peaceful street behind the police vehicle. It could happen anywhere.

P.S.

The local news services reported later that this was a double homecide. Two older women, believed to be mother and daughter, were killed during the night. The suspect is a 19 year old man who climbed in a window and grabbed the sharpest kitchen knife he could find. It is believed to be a random attack.

Book Reviews From Last Week

Her Dragon’s Soul by Julia Mills

He’d seen the golden highlights of her strawberry-blonde hair glistening in the firelight and it was obvious. When the seductively soft scent of Angel’s trumpets with their light lemony overtones had invaded his senses, Liam Drennan just knew she was the one the Universe had made for him and him alone.

The few times he’d decided to go to her something had pushed him away, made it impossible for him to get near her. He’d felt the mating call, even sensed the beginning of the mating bond, but something dark almost evil within her had shut it down and denied him access to his mate. There was something about Hannah McKennon that didn’t add up. 

Now, all Liam had to do was figure out how to tell his brethren’s mate that her best friend had something evil living inside her. Who was he kidding? There was no way this was going to end well for anyone involved.

Oh great! Just another day in paradise.

Lure of the Tiger by Anna Lowe

Tiger shifter Cruz Khala doesn’t trust humans. He doesn’t trust destiny either — not even when it sends him the one woman capable of saving his tormented soul. But there’s more than love at stake as merciless shifter forces gather on sunny Maui, intent on stealing a priceless jewel with mysterious powers. Before he knows it, Cruz becomes the last line of defense between pure evil and the sapphire — and the only one capable of saving his destined mate’s life.

Footloose and carefree? Not anymore. Jody Monroe, pro surfer, is a woman on a mission — until an unknown gunman turns her world upside down. She escapes thanks to a stealthy, enigmatic stranger with haunting, yellow-green eyes who arouses all her fears — and her desires. Cruz is a contradiction: gruff and grouchy, painfully private, yet tender and protective of those he loves. And sexy. Mouthwateringly sexy, all the damn time. Soon, Jody’s life isn’t the only thing on the line — her heart is, too.

Firelord by Delta James

An arrowhead forged in dragon fire should have killed the beast Caitlyn came to slay, but she missed. Perhaps her aim was poor… or perhaps her body knew its master and betrayed her.

Either way, it doesn’t matter now. She is at her enemy’s mercy, and he is not going to be gentle.

She will be spanked until she is sobbing and begging, but the real screaming will begin when the Lord of Fire claims his mate, ravaging her quivering body in the way only one of his kind can.

Her Viken Mates by Grace Goodwin

Isabella Martinez was always good at rebelling, against her parents, her school, her boyfriends. She had needs no one could meet, desires so dark no one could tame her. When her wild side gets her in trouble with the law, she doesn’t think twice when given a choice between prison or transport to a new world as an Interstellar Bride. Alone on Earth, the decision was easy. But when she arrives on Viken, she learns she’s been matched to not one fierce, alien brute, but three—and their desires, their needs, their demands are far darker and more demanding than her own. As enemies plot to destroy Viken’s place in the Coalition Fleet, Bella will have to learn to trust, or lose everything. Her mates will feed the hunger inside her no others ever could. But their secrets will either break her heart…or set her free forever.

Wolf On Board by Heather Long

Meet Jake Danes of Hudson River—Lone Wolf, avid gamer, extreme sports enthusiast, and surfer. He’s spent the last two years roaming free, exploring the world and escaping the dark place his pack had become after betrayal and murder tore them apart. Sure, life changed back home, but Jake’s having way too much fun to return—riding the waves in Monterrey and living out of a van. It’s the perfect life, one he never wants to give up, no matter how many calls he’s fielding from his big brother…then he catches her scent.

Mimi Chase wanted one perfect year. Time away from pack politics and her mother’s matchmaking efforts. Ever since her big brother settled into mating with a healer, Mimi’s mom seems to have gone into overdrive—throwing her at every eligible male in the pack. Choosing to roam seemed the best option, and California the ideal location to get away from everything pack related. Her plans for art classes, yoga on the beach, maybe a cooking lesson or two while living a hippy dippy lifestyle are all she cares about…until another wolf butts into her every activity. Doesn’t he know the rules?

Lone Wolves aren’t supposed to form relationships, so why doesn’t he catch a hint? Worse, why isn’t she working harder to make sure he does?

Weekly Cup of Coco!

Well, this week my husband and I received our second COVID vaccination shot. I’m glad that’s over with for now. His health has been a concern for awhile now. It upset Coco enough that she practically sat on my husband’s feet while I was out at an appointment.

Regretfully, we also had to come to the decision to close his blog. While I repeatedly tried to coax him into using some of the devotionals that he sent out by email a few years back, he wouldn’t have anything to do with that. That left him with the stress of writing new material for every week. His heart isn’t up to the stress, so we reluctantly ended the blog.

Have no fear though, folks! I don’t plan to end this one any time soon.
