Forbidden WolfForbidden Wolf by C.R. Robertson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the story of Tasha and Levi, Tasha is a vampire with special gifts which she has to hide from her coven, she doesn’t have much affection from her parents, but she adores her little sister and now that Tasha is nearing twenty one years old, after her next birthday she will be conscripted into the vampire army, but she always feels trapped by her coven and the secrets she has to keep, so every night she goes into the forest around her to be free and be herself while nobody is watching. When she does this she can use her gift to sense the world around her and connect with the souls residing within it and her main goal is to find an elusive balck jaguar which has been seen around the base. Levi is a werewolf with a distinctive black pelt, he is a loner and prefers to spend his time in the forest learning about what resides within it when he isn’t hunting to prepare for when he joins with others in a military unit, but this one day both Tasha and Levi run into each other on the boundaries of their respective lands when she believes he is the black jaguar and sensing what the other is, they bite each other in an attack first and ask questions later way that their kinds have been trained to do during the war between their races and afterwards, fully expecting that they will die within a few hours from the poisons contained within each.

As they stand and argues over who bit who first and why, as well as what they are going to do now, so as the poisons flow through their systems, they introduce themselves to each other and although neither wants to be with the other as they die, Levi mentions a cave nearby where they can spend their last few hours together and talk. When they get there and they sit with each other, neither of them can deny a certain attraction fizzling between them, Tasha hasn’t felt like this towards anyone else in her coven and she is both scared and excited by it, but she also feels strangely safe with him, Levi is just as confused at his feelings about Tasha and when they share a kiss as they lay dying on the cave floor, the unfairness of the situation really takes hold, especially when Tasha has a last course of bloodlust, she can’t resists biting Levi and tasting his blood one last time. However, as they bite into each other something happens and they start to heal and recover and one thing leads to another and they are kissing again while still mystified at what has happened until the sun rises and Levi shifts into his wolf form to protect Tasha from the deadly rays, but as night falls they reemerge from the cave and walk back to the boundaries discussing their surroundings on the way.

What should have been a death warrant, was something they couldn’t resist as they agree to meet again the next night and many nights after that, however, as their time together comes to an end they agree to meet again once their conscription ends, however, the war isn’t all it is slated as and the future becomes more uncertain for them every day they are fighting, especially when a new enemy comes to the fore, but will they be able to keep their love a secret and stay alive long enough to allow their plans to come to fruition, or will fate intervene and rip them apart? This is an action packed forbidden paranormal romance with plenty of action thrown in for good measure which will keep you hooked until the end.

Nightfall by TK Lawyer-Review by Angie Finley

NightfallNightfall by T.K. Lawyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This story is one that I normally wouldn’t read, but it kept my attention for the most part. Tamara finds a stray dog, or what she thinks is a dog, but he’s a wolf. She names him Nightfall. Nightfall is very protective of her and eventually she is able to communicate telepathically with him. What she doesn’t know is, she has met him before when he was in human form.
Their relationship grows and she finally learns the truth.

Wolf: Book 3 in The Fairy Tale Series By Jody Lynn Daniels. I love a second chance at love story and having it be and unexpected way just makes it that much better. I read this story out of order without and confusion but I’ll definitely be going back to read the others in this series. I’m a fan of stories told in dual point of views, it just gives readers a fuller picture and it’s a great way to see more of the story. The characters are complex and relatable, I found myself forgetting I was reading a book. Once I started I knew I’d be sitting for a while because no way could I stop until the vet end. It’s well written and paced nicely with amazing characters and I gladly give it five stars.

4 Stars!!!!

I like finding new authors along with new series. I quite often find myself reading them out of order but that is ok. I really enjoyed this book and found it to be quite heart warming. The author has a refreshing writing style and brings the characters to life.

The chemistry between Maggie and Carson is quite literally explosive. The whole past history that they share really brings a lot of spark to the book and the underlying misconception on Maggie’s part adds to it. The way that he feels like he should be off limits but is really what she needs just makes for just the right amount of drama added to the book. I like how Carson pursues her and fights to bring their past to an understanding. I really couldn’t wait to finish the book to see how it would end . I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future as well as more of this series.

It normal to believe things without facts. What isn’t normal us avoiding the one person who could bring you a moment of peace. Mag and Sasha are adorable together than add Carson. Had a girl drooling. Had me ready for more babies with how he was with the kids. The author wrote freely and smooth. You could tell from how the story is setup that she cares for the characters. I like how I was able to read the story without stopping and wondering what was meant to be said. I think every story has a rhythm. I liked the way the words fit together.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved everything about this book. The characters were so well written that I wanted to reach into the book, grab Stephen and not let him go. Sasha was just the perfect companion to him and together I thought they were the best comedic relief for a story that sometimes broke my heart. I instantly felt like I was part of this family and therefore I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen. This book had everything I want in a book, it made me laugh, it made me cry and it definitely made me bite my nails in anticipation. It’s the third book in the Fairy Tale Series and if the other books are half as good as this one, then I will devour them just as fast as I did this one.

I really enjoyed reading Wolf by Jody Lynn Daniels. It is the first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed her writing style and it didn’t take me long at all to really get into the story!
Maggie and Carson’s story was one that I really enjoyed following. I love the way the author really managed to get across how the characters were feeling especially Maggie, I felt like I was living through some of the story with her. I could feel the raw, painful emotions that the author poured into her. There were some moments in the story that were quite emotional and powerful and I have to admit I wasn’t expecting this at all. These painful parts were so beautifully written though and I could tell that they author had taken her time whilst writing them. I love that Carson wasn’t afraid to show his softer, emotional side also. These two characters were definitely connectable and relatable!
I would definitely love to read the first two books in the series especially if they are as great to read and as well written as this one is!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wolf: Book 3 in The Fairy Tale Series by Jody Lynn Daniels is a wonderful sweet story. It is a second chance story that will warm your heart. There are a lot of conflicting emotions that are up and down. The characters are just wonderful and will lodge in your heart and hope against hope all turns out well.There are many moments when I found myself laughing at the antics of the characters and their loving family and friends.

Carson “The Wolf” Marrok is a military man who has seen many battles and friends hurt but none have affected him more than the loss of his best friend. Now if he could only find his one, his true love.

Maggie O’brien still holds one man responsible for the biggest loss of her life. When that man turns up to her place of employment, all the horrible memories come rushing back. What she discovers is that a heart truly can heal.

Grab a copy you will not be disappointed. I am anxiously awaiting the next one.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read in this series and I was able to follow the threads with no problem. There were always prompts so I knew what was coming… “Will I need any special information on the children coming in?” Obviously there are secondary characters who have had their story told so it’s assumed we know what the setting is all about.

Told in a dual point of view, this story was easy to read and held my attention from the beginning. For some reason, I gave the lead male looks and a voice that sounds a lot like Sam Elliott from Roadhouse days. His name is Wolf and even though the title clearly states that it’s “The Fairy Tale Series” for some reason I never grabbed onto Red Riding Hood. I think I was just reading along and not comparing it to what it was interpreted from.

The kids in this story are sweet and adorable and the friend Abby – well everyone needs (I do, I hope you do also) to have an “Abby” in their life. What a great character she is.

I did enjoy the way the story was written. It is appropriately detailed, the story flows well (although at times I had to figure out who was speaking and look back at the heading) and it made me smile as often as it made me tear up a little bit. I think it was a good balance of emotions.

I would recommend this story and I will be adding the first two to my TBR list.

This is the third book in the series Maggie and Carson are the main characters. It’s an interesting example of fairy tale love. There is drama, strife and a couple rescues, but best of all love. Carson is the hero, and love interest. Maggie is the damsel and broken hearted widow of Carson’s best friend Sean. Although rocky at first the story smooth’s out and became the fairytale. Although not really a play on Red Riding Hood like it implies it’s a good fast read and I would definitely recommend it. It absolutely can be read as a stand alone.
