Book Review: Resurrection: The Sainthood
Resurrection-Siobhan-Davis

Blurb

Everything changed the night my dad died.

The night I met Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo.

Those manipulative a-holes set out to ruin me after our hot night together, but they didn’t realize you can’t destroy something that’s already broken. And it only works if the victim cares.

Which I don’t.

Because I’ve been in hell for years, and nothing penetrates the steel walls I’ve erected.

Until The Sainthood decides I belong to them and cracks appear in my veneer. Their cruel games, harsh words, and rough touch awakens something inside me, and now, I’m in trouble.

They draw me deeper into their dangerous world, until I’m in the middle of all the violence and gang warfare, tangled up in all the secrets and lies, and there’s no turning back.

Because they own me.

And nothing has ever felt so right.

I’m exactly where I should be.

But with enemies on all sides, survival becomes a deadly game with no guarantees.

And, sometimes, saints become sinners.

Please read the note at the start of the book. Cannot be read as a standalone and ends with a cliffhanger. Book 1 of 3.


Resurrection: A Dark High School Romance (The Sainthood – Boys of Lowell High Book 1) by Siobhan Davis. This was a crazy bully romance! Right off the bat its a fast burn with a 5-way! Harlow gets the devastating news that her father has died and then walks right in on her boyfriend cheating on her! Way to start out a book Siobhan! Harlow is also out for vengeance. I love that she kicks-ass for a living and can fight for herself. No more meek MC’s for us! Diesel is her trainer and we definitely see some chemistry between the teacher and the student. Then, we come and find that Harlow must now live with these 4 sexy as sin Sainthood members, Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo, who just happen to be the same guys she had a 5-way with! Her mom, Giana, is getting re-married to the president of the Sainthood and along with him he brings these 4 boys to live with and go to school with Harlow! The hurt just keeps on piling up. Harlow must now look at her tormentor from when she was kidnapped. She grew from that experience, but to look at him everyday and to keep a sin face, NOPE! This book has so much drama, angst, bullying, it really has it all for us.

Harlow wants to take her vengeance and she will by infiltrating the Sainthood and getting these guys under her thumb. She wants to take it down from the inside and make them pay. The Sainthood is like the Mafia. They have chapters and presidents and lots of people to get through to the top. Throughout the book, though it’s not easy, Saint is very possessive and even though they share girls, he doesn’t seem like he wants to, he wants Harlow for himself. Caz is the funny, sexy brute that you just want to see Harlow and him keep hooking up. They are the pranksters. Theo is the shy, nerdy guy who has a past history with Harlow. They loved each other, they were their everything, until he turned on her. Galen is the mystery guy. They seem to be getting along and have some chemistry brewing. Harlow doesn’t want her heart broken but no one ever does, and she goes and falls for these sexy guys. I would totally fall for them also, especially Theo, he seems like my type of guy. The cliffhanger isn’t so bad because you have the second book right away 🙂 but it is still a good one! Galen just surprises us and the WTF moment happens.

This week our Author Spolight is from J. Bree, the extremely talented Hannaford prep queen. J. Bree just finished up her first series with To the End: Hannaford Prep Year Four. If you haven’t started this series yet, you need to! A few spin off series are in the works and you won’t want to miss out on what happens! This is definitively an upcoming author that you will want to keep your eye on!

Onto the Questions! Thank you again J. Bree for answering our questions! We really appreciate it!

Q: What got you into witting? A: I am a voracious reader and daydreamer, there has never been a time in my life that I haven’t been tinkering with an idea.

Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: This question is too hard to answer because I have HUNDREDS of favorite books lol.

Q: Why write high school bully romance stories vs others? A: I had the characters in my mind for a while and the ghost of an idea and then I read three books that helped me figure it all out: the Rich Boys of Burberry Prep series by CM Stunich, The Rebel of Raleigh High by Callie Hart, and Broken Wings by Tate James and Jaymin Eve. 

Q: What is your favorite character from your books? (Or another book/series) A:  My favorite characters change depending on who I’m writing but if I HAD to choose I would say either Lips or Nate. They are very interesting to play with, I love the ride or die, no prisoners, cutthroat ways they both have.

Q: How did you come up with the characters from the Hannaford prep series? A: Characters always walk into my head and take it over. That’s just a part of my process, I can’t explain it lol.

Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? About writing bully romance? A: Time is always the hardest thing. I have two under four so finding time is always hard. I have a lot of time to think thing through though so when I do finally get to sit at my laptop I can usually knock out a couple of chapters very quickly.

Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Read a lot and read critically. What do you like, what have the authors done well, what would you do differently. I ask this in every book I read.

Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: In my writing cave while my kids are out lol.

Q: What is your favorite food? A:  Melbourne, in another life I’d live there.

Q: What is your favorite food? A: Chocolate, I’m a total whore for chocolate.

Q:What is coming next from you? A: The Butcher of the Bay Part I, Illi and Odie’s backstory. I’m very excited to share it with my readers

Book Review: Pack Ebon Red

Book Review: Pack Ebon Red
Pack-Ebon-Red-CM-Stunich

Blurb

I am wolf; I am human; I am neither; I am both.
I am werewolf.

And I have seven Alpha Males as my mates.
All mine to kiss and hold and touch, seven handsome men for my bed.
My boys represent the biggest packs in North America.
But I am the Alpha Female and I rule them all.

One day, the packs might force me to choose.
But my heart, it won’t allow it. Things could get…bloody if I have to fight for my boys.
For now, three glittering dark courts threaten our existence with their glamorous cruelty:
the vampires, the witches, and the fae.

Werewolves are missing from all the packs, and my boys and I, we have to find them.
Or find out who’s killing them.
Because I’m the mistress of my men, my packs, a girl known simply as White Wolf.
I’ve promised to protect the men I love, the family and friends I cherish.
And the White Wolf…always keeps her promises.

***PACK EBON RED is a 300+ page full-length reverse harem/menage, urban fantasy/paranormal romance novel for mature teens and adults 18+ with a happily ever after waiting at the end of the series. It features one strong woman and her seven hot men that will do whatever it takes to protect and support their alpha. This book contains: werewolves, magic, vampires, dark fae, witches, intrigue, steamy sex scenes, romance, paranormal politics, and true love. This is book one of seven.


If you haven’t dived into C.M. Stunich yet, Pack Ebon Red(The Seven Mates of Zara Wolf)  might be a good place to start. This is currently book 1 of 5 (four are currently out), so you can binge read all you want! We got the shifters, kick-ass female, seven sexy men who all want Zara’s attention (well, most of them) drama, action, MAGIC, and oh so much more. Like Fae, I’m on a Fae binge and love reading about how authors portray them differently in their books. 

Zara is the next Alpha of the North American Packs and is from pack Ebon Red. Her mother is the current Alpha and you don’t want to get on her bad side. She tends to wear her silver like a badge…on her naked skin…so everyone can see how strong she is because silver will make these shifters bleed. Zara must prove to her mother and grandmother that she can be strong enough to lead their packs, which neither thinks she can handle the stress and difficult decisions an Alpha must make.

This reverse harem has 7 shifters that Zara must choose to become her next mate. 7 guys! While she really only wants one (currently) she must uphold tradition and welcome in these 7 hunky men who will live with her for the next year in the packhouse. Right as these packs are showing up for the pairing ceremony (which BTW, is so hot, one of my favorite parts of the books when meeting the guys) Zara and her love interest Nic, from pack Ebon Red, share a moment that they fear will be their last together. While experiencing this sexy scene they discover a burst of magic, which has been long lost to the packs. This leads to Nic being able to be one of Zara’s choices of mates. Yay!

While reading this book you won’t get bored. I think the only thing I had a hard time was trying to figure out which guy was which. You have to remember 7 guys! That is a lot of hotness to figure out. So we have Nic, Anubis, Silas, Monty, Jax, Tidus, and Che. After the pairing ritual, these 8 must figure out who is taking all the shifters and what is happening to them. They must complete this before their time is up and in the end, Zara is expected to choose one singular mate. But why choose right? Ha, Zara ain’t gonna choose, she’s gonna make her own path! Like all the lovely bad-ass females we read about, Zara doesn’t take shit and owns her body and her men.

On this adventure, we have a normal best friend, who likes the bad boys, witches with some crazy cats and scary magic, and some Fae that just like to create trouble. This book will keep you entertained with all the action, drama, sexy scenes and mystery. CM Stunich does an amazing job at creating a landscape for you to hold in your mind and great character development without too many of the mysteries about what might happen next. I love it when the authors just get right in there! You know that CM writes some steamy scenes and you won’t be disappointed in this book. Che and Zara, on their pack run, yeah I thought that was hot 😉 

Sizzle Factor: 5 out of 5

When won’t I give CM Stunich 5 out of 5? She writes amazing steamy scenes.
