Weekly Book Club {12.6.17}


I read 2 really good books by favorite authors this past week. You might recognize Suzanne Wright from last week’s book club list. She writes several of my favorite series. I’m a loyal reader. Once an author pens a series that I love chances are I will read all of their books forever. 

1. Lure of Oblivion by Suzanne Wright– Gwen Miller may be a human, but she has no problem taking a stand against her own kind. She’s going to testify against the teenage boy she saw viciously assault a lone shifter female—and no amount of pressure from the boy’s wealthy family will make her back down. But when the harassment turns violent, help comes in the form of a lean, toned wolf with winter-gray eyes. As a guest at Gwen’s inn, shifter enforcer Zander Devlin can’t help but notice that the fierce and leggy brunette is in serious trouble. Since she’s putting herself at risk for one of his kind, keeping her safe is the least he can do. That’s not the only reason Zander wants her close. He desires her, even as the wolf inside him backs away from her. But his feral instincts are hard to keep down, and as they take shape, they’re harder for Gwen to resist. Then again, embracing them could be the only thing that could save her life.

My Rating: 5 Stars

This is book 3 in the Mercury Pack series, which is a spin off of the Phoenix Pack series. Both are amazing and have lots of interconnecting storylines and characters. This book was really really good. I enjoyed it as much as all the others and stayed up way too late to finish reading it. What I love the most about the author’s wolf series is the way she blends humor, action, danger, alpha wolves, and badass women and somehow turns all that into an amazing story. It’s remarkable. 

2. Havoc by Laramie Briscoe– Holden “Havoc” Thompson – My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe, and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit. The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again – let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness. I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my protection. Leighton Strather – My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama, we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve ruined. My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get. It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s what I tell myself. I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust, hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away. 

My Rating: 4 Stars

This is book 3 in the Moonshine Task Force series but full disclosure- I have not read the first 2. This book was good. I liked the marriage of convenience aspect, that’s always fun. I don’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the first 2 books but I will probably go back and read them because I enjoyed this one.
