Monroe (Skinwalkers 7), Susan Bliler
Eden Warden a game hunter has no love for CEO, Monroe StoneCrow. He is building to close to her property, much to her disgust. She knows he is up to something and as law enforcement for the area he will have to answer to her.
Monroe StoneCrow is the dominant skinwalker. No one challenges him and he always gets what he wants.
He has no idea the thorn in his side Eden, is his Angel, the keeper of his soul. He is drawn to her take no prisoners personality and means to have her. She can run things in her world, but when it comes to the bedroom he is charge, nonnegotiable.
Bookswagger Marcia: Four Crowns, good read, on the way to swagger. I really enjoyed this listen. Eden was assertive, caring and open to reason. I love that in an alpha female. Hate when they make them so aggressive they look ridic and this author was far away from that, so loved it.
Eden the adopted mother of three and Warden is tough, the right match for the dominant Monroe. It was sexy seeing them butt heads and her leave him bewildered (he was so not used to someone challenging him). This story was about the plot and the romance between Eden and Monroe. There are some closed door love scenes and some hot steamy, someone should lock the door love scenes. I felt it was the perfect blend to keep the story moving.
Straight to the Swagger: I jumped in this book at book 7 and had no trouble enjoying and picking up the background on skinwalkers. I like the history of the people and plan on going back to read book one. If you like strong assertive females who melt for a good alpha then you should check it out.
On the Narrator: Erin Mallon was cool. She did the male/female well, no complaints. First time listing to her.
His Woman, Sam Crescent
Drake cannot understand why Rachel ignores, avoids and all out runs from him. Women find him attractive yet Rachel goes out of her way to be polite but distant.
Rachel finds Drake to be more than she can handle. After a relationship gone wrong in the city, she has resigned herself to a single life living with her father on her family’s ranch in Crest Hill.
Drake knows what he wants, he has never been shy about it and will not let Rachel’s fear or her overprotective fathers shotgun stop him from claiming the woman he knows is meant to be his.
Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. This was a cute read, I found it interesting how the author weaved in Rachel’s parents romantic history. Her father is white and her mother was AA and it was unheard of in their time, especially in the small community they reside in. Rachel and Drakes romance moved pretty darn fast. They knew of each, a product of growing up in the same small town and we are definitely getting the vibe Drake is ready to do what he has to do to make Rachel his after she avoids him for the second time. He is willing to go slow since she is the big V…Yes, I know annoying to some readers in romance land.
Straight to the Swagger: It was alright. The heroine was extremely innocent. Did not know her own beauty and you hear about her overprotective father and his shotgun a lot…So here is another read that can be used for the reading drinking game. Every time you read shotgun. Throw one back for Bookswagger!
I have recently gone MC crazy so if anyone wants to recommend some good MC books….Please do. I remember when the books featuring motorcycle clubs were paranormal and were more than likely used to emphasize how bad those shifter wolves really were.
Girl things have changed.
Overall Series (quickie) This weekend I read the entire Outlaw Love series by Nicole Snow. The series includes in order Outlaw Kind of Love, Nomad Kind of Love and Savage Kind of Love. They can be read as standalone but I would recommend reading in order as each book chronologically picks up after the other and makes for a more enjoyable read. I am going to be honest and it might just be my overdose of MC romance talking but this is not my favorite but not my worse. I would rate the entire series overall, Three Crowns. But let’s dish my favorite book in the series book two Nomad Kind of Love.
Nomad Kind of Love: Prairie Devils MC Romance (Outlaw Love), Nicole Snow
Aaron “Maverick” Sturm is the President of the Prairie Devils Nomads charter and is tasked with starting a charter in Grizzlies territory. Although they are outmanned the town wants the Grizzlies out because of the atrocities committed in the name of the MC.
June Daniels has been held captive by the Grizzlies ever since they busted into her family’s home and changed her life forever. She is all that is left of her family and living a life she never imagined. The only thing she wants is vengeance against the Grizzlies.
Taking as collateral against the Grizzlies June never counted on falling for the kind of man she hates, a man in a MC or falling for his dominant demands.
Maverick will protect June she is his property and will be his ol lady, a Prairie Devil never backs away from a challenge.
Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. Out of all three stories in the series, I found this one to have the most creative plot line and a heroine who did not make me cringe. June had been through a lot and the way she dealt with things came across as pretty realistic. There were things implied that she might have done that were not so good for her but living captive with a MC that basically (no spoiler) changed life as you know it would leave some emotional scars. So she read realistic. Some of the things that drew me out of the story were the motorcycle club aspects (like I am an expert…not) but I like what I like and some of it just did not do it for me. Maybe it will for you! I must admit though, I am getting tired of all the strippers in these stories and the author does the stripper heroine again in book three. In this story it was different but at this point I am not reading another book about a stripper for a long, long time. They seem to be all up through these books and I think with me reading so many over the past two weeks it became glaringly obvious to me how overdone this is in this sub genre. But I liked the way this author did it, so it was cool. No side hustles for June if you get what I am saying.
Straight to the Swagger: Alpha bad guy, who is only good to his club and his future ol lady has to fight huge battle to keep mc charter from being destroyed and girl from being killed as part of revenge. Heroine has to have her vengeance in order to find closure and realize she still have family with her ol man and his now her mc as well.

Some may think Whit is a sucker in fact she knows they do but she cannot let an innocent baby be placed in child protective services. A product of foster care herself she knows the type or lack of safety some of the foster homes provide. She steps up to take care of her friends baby, a baby she helped welcome into the world and already love as her own, not knowing he comes with a father attached to a hate group.
Bobby Jack has only one thought when he is released from prison. Not strengthening his hate group ties but finding his son and the mother of his child. He is not prepared to find his child being taking care of by a black woman. A woman belonging to a group he has always professed to hate and has the tats to prove it.
The two bond over their love for one baby and find they have more in common than they thought, starting with their desire for one another.
Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. This was a different read for me. I was not bothered by the language or the hate speech, the author did warn us and you hear worse in an episode of SVU. The author touched on some touchy subjects. The one line that stuck with me is things have gotten worse since President Obama was elected ( I paraphrased), to be frank I have heard that before.
I felt like I was reading about the experience of two separate people who were searching for a way to survive the ordeals of everyday life. Two people who eventually connected and found they liked facing those ordeals together. The romance almost took a back seat, to me when they were actually getting together and building their relationship the book ended with the two talking on the phone. Either there is going to be a book two or this ending left a lot to be desired.
Straight to the Swagger: Read for the experience, seeing two people from different backgrounds coming together. If you are reading for the romance alone you will probably be a little disappointed. But if there is a book two I am in!
