Excerpt:

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?” As inconsequential as her answer was, it mattered to me. I wanted to know her tastes and preferences. I wanted to know everything about her.

“My favorite flavor of ice cream?” She leaned up on her elbow. “Are you seriously asking me that right now?”

“I need to know more about you.”
“And that includes learning my ice cream preferences?”

“You know all of that stuff about me, don’t you?” I already knew the answer.

“Rocky Road.” She flushed.

“See.”

“Does that freak you out?”

I ran my lips across hers. “Not in the slightest. It means you cared enough to know. I should have too. I should have noticed you more.”

“You had plenty of other girls to notice.”

“I don’t notice them now.” There was no one else I wanted. I’d never understand how I hadn’t noticed how perfect we were for each other.

“Maybe you will again.”

“Nope. You’re stuck with me.” I was only half joking. I wouldn’t force my company on her, but if it was up to me, I’d never leave her side again.

“Because I already know you’re a wolf?”
“No.” I felt a growl growing inside me. “Because you’re meant to be with me.”

“Oh no. No. No.” She moved away. “None of that. Next you are going to start talking about pre-destined dreams and freaky stuff like that.”

I stiffened. Those dreams were the root of most of our trouble. “This has nothing to do with dreams. It’s about the way I feel. Becoming Dire has made things even clearer for me.”

“But you’re still you, so if it’s just your Dire side…”

I rolled her over so she was under me. “My feelings for you come from both of my sides. They were always there, but this experience has made them stronger. Being with you has made them stronger. Becoming a Dire has only accentuated what I already felt as a human. Things are clearer now, crisper.”

She grazed her teeth over her lip in a nervous gesture, and I couldn’t hold back. I needed to taste her lips myself. I leaned my head down and let my lips connect with hers. The kiss wasn’t gentle nor any of the things I’d promised my kisses with her would be now. It was primal and needy. I was greedy, wanting and needing to soak up every ounce of her.

About DAWN:The Dire Wolves Chronicles-

It is always darkest before dawn.

Gage and Mary Anne are on the run and determined to break Hunter out of prison so he can finish changing Gage. They look to Mary Anne’s college friend Genevieve and the zany Dire Denny for assistance, but in the end, help comes from the unlikeliest of places.

Hunter must end the hunt even if it means destroying his own brother and giving up on the girl destined to be his. With betrayal surrounding him at every turn, his best chance at ending the hunt is someone he is sworn to hate.


My Review

“I’m afraid of how you make me feel. Of how out of control we get when we’re together, but that has nothing to do with you being a Dire. That crazy feeling was there before you changed.”

There are no words to describe how excited I was to pick up this book. Ever since I finished Dusk, I have been waiting in anticipation to get my hands on Dawn. And let me tell you, Dawn was worth the wait!

Dawn picks up right where Dusk left off. Mary Anne and Gage are on the run. However, they can’t just run off and start a new life. No, they have to somehow find a way to break Hunter out of prison so that he can finish changing Gage. Fresh out of options, they have no choice, but to reach out to Mary Anne’s friend Genevieve. Along with her and Denny’s help, they will try to make the impossible happen…..Hunter is determined to end the hunt, no matter what the cost. He doesn’t know who to trust, but in the end, the answer will come from a very unlikely source….

Dawn was such an exciting read. It was fast paced and told from multiple points of view. Normally, I only like to read two points of view. More than two can get tricky and as a reader, I start to get overwhelmed. However, in this case, the multiple points of view really worked well and added so much to the story.

Writing a spoiler free review for a book you really enjoyed is so hard!!! I just want to gush in excitement! But, I’m not going to spoil this for you. Nope. But, I will tell you this: I loved Dawn. I loved everything about this book. It had mystery and suspense, angst and romance, betrayal and help from unexpected places. The main characters; I felt so connected to Mary Anne and Gage. The two of them together are a force to be reckoned with and they love they share is so strong, so real.

I enjoyed getting lost in the world that Alyssa Rose Ivy has created. Every time that I think I couldn’t possibly love a character or paranormal creature more, she has to go and prove me wrong. She gives me characters that are easy to relate to, to connect with and then interweaves their stories together, so that I never really have to say goodbye to my favorite characters.

Dawn was the perfect ending to the Dire Wolves series. I devoured this book in one sitting. I literally finished it in about 3 hours! It was that good! I could not put it down. I was captivated and intrigued from start to finish. Even though Mary Anne and Gage’s story is over, I am hopeful that this won’t be the last that we see of them. Alyssa Rose Ivy has really opened my eyes to the paranormal scene and I can not wait to see what journey she will take me on next!

About LUST (The Allure Chronicles #2)

After years of searching Daisy and Owen have finally found each other, only to face the threat of being forced apart. If they are unable to stop Daisy from becoming an Allure, she will forever lose the ability to love.

Desperate to stop the change before time runs out, they must decide what price they are willing to pay to save their love.


My Review

“What’s the point in experiencing anything if you can’t feel it?” I’d never thought about the importance of emotion before I started to change, but now it was everything. I realized I would be nothing but a shell of myself without it. No one would be.

Lust picks up right where Lure left off. Daisy and Owen are off on the quest to stop Daisy from turning into an Allure. Daisy is desperate to stop the change. She doesn’t want to stop being a human or loose the way she feels about Owen, but her quest won’t be easy. In order to find answers, she will have to put her faith in people that she doesn’t trust. But time is of the essence and tough choices will have to be made. And in the end the ultimate question will be: What would you do, what would you sacrifice for the person you love?

Lust was a quick and easy read for me. I enjoyed getting lost in the world of Daisy and Owen. Lust is a great story about fate, sacrifice, the quest to stay true to yourself and the power of love. “I’d never given much credence to fate, but I’d changed my mind. We were fated to be together. There was a higher power that wanted us to be together, and it made each day we spent together feel like a year in the intensity it created.” Daisy and Owen’s quest to find the truth and stop what’s happening to Daisy, will not be easy. They will have to travel to new worlds and will meet new creatures along the way. You will find yourself asking questions: Who’s on their side? Who is telling the truth? Are they really being helped? And when you get to the end….your will be left breathless. My heart is broken. A tough, tough decision had to be made. There is no wrong or right answer. The only thing you can do is hold on for the ride and hope that in the end, all will turn out ok. I for one can not wait to find out what happens next!

Excerpt:

Preface
I had no real choice. Only one answer was acceptable, yet giving it meant losing everything and anything I cared about. It meant losing Owen, and it meant losing myself.

“Daisy?” Owen looked deep into my eyes.

“I love you.” I didn’t think, I didn’t question. I crushed my lips against his, needing to soak up his taste and feel. He responded immediately, deepening the kiss as he wrapped me up in his arms.

Always and forever. Our promised words swirled through my head. Promised words that couldn’t possibly be true. But in that moment it didn’t matter. The truth couldn’t hurt us. Only time could.

Amazon ** Barnes and Noble ** iTunes ** GooglePlay ** Kobo

About SEDUCTION’S KISS:

Never agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.

*Prequel novella to Lure (The Allure Chronicles #1)*

LURE

Amazon * Nook * iBooks * Kobo * Google Play

About LURE:

There’s danger in the beauty…

Two years, six months, and twenty-five days. That’s how long it had been since I’d seen my winged hero— not that I’d been counting. I’d suffered through years of counseling just to convince my friends and family that I wasn’t crazy and knew he didn’t exist.

But he did. And I was done waiting.

Days after college graduation I headed back down to New Orleans to retrace my steps and find Owen again only to find my life was about to get even crazier… thanks to the most beautiful and dangerous of all paranormal creatures, the Allures.
