What I’ve been reading ~ Overcome

I recently went to work from home, so my ‘reading’ aka audiobook time has been dramatically cut (but hey, it’s meant way more time for writing) but I made a trip over the weekend where I got in a couple books (I listen at 2.5x speed, so they go faster) The best one was Overcome by Lora Leigh.

This is actually three novellas in the Breed series. I had read all three before but the audio versions added a depth to the stories that hadn’t been there before. I really enjoyed them. If you get a chance, pick it up!

What I’m reading ~ Rule Breaker ~ Lora Leigh

Rule Breaker is book #29 in the Breed Series.


Lion Breed and enforcer Rule Breaker has just a few rules he doesn’t break. Not for anything. Not for anyone—like never have sex with a woman outside his own breed, especially a human woman. Especially someone too helpless, too fun loving and too full of life to ever be able to protect herself, let alone help him to protect her.
If the damned animal inside him insists on a mate, then why pick her? A woman who is an easy target and who can be used as a weapon against him at any time.
But what he suspects is mating heat may not be that at all. Just his animal instincts rioting, pacing, irritated whenever he’s away from her.
Okay, he can handle that.
What ensues is a fiery affair that breaks all the rules of mating heat and will eventually endanger his mate with the very rules designed to protect the Breeds—for she’s possibly been working against them…


What did I think:

Lora Leigh is one of the few authors that I will stop whatever I’m doing to read a new release. This one was well worth it. I settled in with the book and I had a hard time putting it down until I’d finished it. After waiting so long to find out Rule’s story, it was well worth the wait. I loved the book. I highly recommend  it to anyone who likes a good steamy romance.


My rating: five howls.

What I’m Reading ~ Wrath ~ Laurann Dohner

This is the sixth book in the New Species series.

Wrath joins the task force to hunt down and capture humans who worked for Mercile and bring them to justice. The task force captures Lauren, believing her to know where one of the men they’re after is. When Wrath realizes she is just in the wrong place at the wrong time he does every thing he can to protect her.

What did I think? This is the sixth book in the series, I’ve read them all. I enjoy the series, despite knowing that they are a softer, gentler version of Lora Leigh’s Breed series. They have an intriguing (if hauntingly similar) story line and steamy, erotic (if tame) love scenes.
