Review: For Their Happiness (FREE on AUG. 12, 2012)

What do you do when your soul-mate doesn’t know you’re his?

Crystie had always kept to herself, only having one friend. She liked it that way, until she saw her mate for the first time. He was everything she could dream of, athletic, honor society, genuinely nice, and defensive of those weaker than him. The only problem; he was the soon to be Alpha and was in love with his childhood sweetheart. They had grown up together and had always been faithful, so Crystie stayed hidden and never let him know.

Trent had always had a soft spot for his best friend, Nikki, but they were not mates. He had always looked for his mate, but as the years passed, he was giving up hope of finding her. He had caught a scent of her when he was seventeen that made his wolf howl ‘Mate!’, but was never able to find who the scent belonged to. As the time for him to take over the pack came closer, he decided to mate with Nikki so the pack would have an Alpha Female.

Now forces are after Crystie along with the problems she’s having by not being with her mate. What will happen if Trent doesn’t discover Crystie is his mate and find her in time?

This is the first time I’ve read anything of Jayton Young’s and I am so glad I took a chance on a new author.  This was an emotional and exciting read.  I wanted to cry at times, I was angry at times and it ended with a smile.

Crystie is the omega of her pack, she can feel and influence others emotions.  She goes beyond that though; her drive is to see others happy/content, even at the expense of her own.  On what turns out to be her last day of school she scents her mate only to realize that it’s Trent. Crystie is devastated. She just knows Trent loves Nikki, so she denies the mate bond so that he and Nikki can be happy together. The strength it takes to deny that basic need is only one example of how special Crystie is.  The consequences of that show up slowly over the next few years.  Her wolf leaves her and she is losing the physical strengths of being a were.  The emotional toll is the worst, so Crystie decides to go on a pack hunt with other mateless wolves to get away from the situation.  Only after they leave do they find out that rouges are looking for an omega and willing to steal them.

Trent has spent most of his life looking and wishing for his mate.  He and Nikki have been best friends since they were born.  Trent and Nikki decide to mate with each other so that he can ascend as Alpha with the strength of that bond.  They are just friends, Nikki has her own reasons you will discover and Trent has just lost hope or thinks his true mate has died.  Then he gets a call saying that their Omega has been injured in an attack by feral wolves and heads that way.  (All of Crystie’s hard work is for naught when Trent shows up.) 

Overall this is a wonderful read and appropriate for both young adult and adult readers.  The character development is great; I really felt what Crystie was going through.  Trent’s character didn’t really develop until about 30% of the way into the book, but when it did I could see his Alpha side and the tender side he showed no one but his mate. There are a few spots the editing could have been better.  The side characters were more than filler and I can’t wait to see who Ms. Young writes about next.

My Rating: 4/5

 Book Description:

The secret is out, and Dylan is ready to go public with their relationship in a big way. Thanks to the Penelope Valentine scandal, however, it’s much bigger than Tia ever anticipated. She’s the mystery woman everyone’s talking about, and once her identity is revealed, she must step out of her old life and learn to embrace her new celebrity and everything that comes with it. She becomes a media darling overnight, but there are still those who would begrudge her happiness…

Lexi is at first relieved that she no longer has to bear the burden of keeping Dylan’s identity to herself, but soon discovers that having it out in the open only creates more complications. Ryan, her fiancé, feels blindsided by her deception, and is struggling to maintain his own identity in the long shadow cast by Dylan Miller. Then there’s Bo Collins; the drummer for InHap who feels more for her than he’s at first willing to admit. With all the misunderstandings, deceptions, and lies, can Lexi ever hope to find her own InHap*pily ever after?

The first of this series Incidental Happenstance is one of my top 10 reads.. My review-> here.

Exerpt:

“This is going to be the year of us, Tia, and it’s just the beginning of a lifetime together.” He raked his hands through his hair, and reached into the pocket of his jacket, his gaze never faltering. “The next time the tabloids print a headline that says ‘Engaged,’ I want it to have an exclamation point and a picture of us under it.” He pulled his hand from his pocket, and Tia saw the gold-embossed black box that he held and she inhaled on a gasp, unconsciously bringing her hand to her heart as Dylan dropped to one knee.

“I worship you, Tia Hastings. Life without you would have no meaning, and you would make me the happiest man on earth if you would be my wife.” He opened the box, but Tia couldn’t take her eyes off of his and all the sentiment she saw there. “Please. Say you’ll marry me.”

A flood of emotion washed over her in an instant, and in that moment, she knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that she was the luckiest woman in the world. “Yes,” she croaked, then louder, “Yes!” Her voice dropped to a whisper as she fought tears of joy. “With every cell in my body, yes. Oh Dylan…” She held out a very shaky hand and looked down as he slipped the ring onto the third finger of her left hand. He kissed the ring and her hand before standing up and pulling her into his arms. Their kiss was sweet and tender, and the fireworks in the distance seemed just for them.

Alpha Marked #1: Scarlet

Scarlet

Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering!

As if hitting thirty wasn’t enough, unmated Scarlet Wickham is summoned to this year’s Gathering. As a woman Marked to be the mate of an Alpha pair, she’s not going to find happiness anywhere other than in the arms of two Alpha werewolves. So, off she goes with her sisters in tow. ‘Cause yeah, she’s one of the plump Wickham triplets, and they’re all being carted off to werewolf speed dating.

Keller and Madden, Ruling Alpha pair, can’t believe their luck. They’ve found their mate, and she’s more than they could have ever hoped for. She’s feisty with spirit to spare, and lush curves that they want to trace with their tongues. They can’t wait to solidify their bond and get to know the beautiful woman who is to rule at their side. But first, there’s the minor inconvenience of a challenge to the death…

 Alpha Marked #2: Gabriella

Gabriella

Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering!

Ugh. Gabriella Wickham thought turning thirty was bad enough, but now she’s been invited (ordered) to attend this year’s Gathering (werewolf speed dating). Having a Mark on her arm means that she’s one of the few human women destined to mate with not one, but two Alpha werewolves. Thank goodness werewolves don’t come in “ugly.” After her sister Scarlet mates the Ruling Alphas, things really start to get interesting. Gabby runs into not one, but two hotter than hot werewolves who make her tingle in all the right places. Yum. Of course, “yum” comes with baggage of both the mental and female kind. Lovely. Luckily it’s nothing a few punches and a good talking to can’t cure. Maybe…-ish.

Berke Davis and Jack Wright know that lush, curvaceous Gabriella is their mate. Who cares that they’re currently not part of an Alpha pair? Details, details. Burke has been half bound to his best friend Jack since they were four, but the past keeps them from solidifying their pairing and taking up the mantle of Alpha. Berke understands his friend’s feelings, but Jack is about to get a lesson on living and loving. Berke just hopes the lessons are learned before they both lose Gabriella. Especially when she is Challenged by a rival to first blood…a Challenge that could end in very permanent, and deadly, consequences…for Gabriella.

 Alpha Marked #3: Whitney
whitney

Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering!

Whitney Wickham is at the darned annual werewolf Gathering all right. Only there’s one problem: she doesn’t belong there. Her sisters carry the Mark indicating they’ll mate an Alpha Pair of wolves, while Whitney does not have that lovely, swirling scar. She’s been hauled half way around the world to be stared at, and not-so-covertly sniffed, for no reason. Unfortunately the gorgeous, drool worthy, magic-mojo-wielding Wardens don’t know why she’s been summoned to the Gathering any more than she does. Which sucks. But at least they’re hot.

Emmett Greene and Levy Walters are Wardens—keepers of the law and embodiment of the magic of the werewolves. They can never mate, never marry, and never form a lasting romantic relationship. It’s a hard and fast law that keeps their powers pure of outside influence.

Rules are going to be broken.

One look at Whitney, one hint of her scent, and they realize their immovable laws might have to jiggle. She’s got luscious curves, a wicked smile, and a mouth that would make a thousand men weep. No matter the rules, their inner wolves will claim her. The only things standing in their way are the Elder Wardens who will do anything… anything… to keep Emmett and Levy from discovering the truth: the laws are wrong. And being with Whitney Wickham is so very, very right.

Book One of the Dragon Heat Series
Release Date – 8/6/13

The last thing dragon shifter Stig Wyvern needs is his dead friend’s kid sister showing up on his doorstep. He’s just minutes away from entering a mating phase. Sharing his isolated house with the young woman he’s desperately lusted after for quite some time is a recipe for disaster.

But Cora Cardenas has nowhere else to go. She’s in deep trouble with some really nasty people and Stig is the only one who can protect her. That he’s deliciously sexy and makes her tingle with the simplest of smiles is just a bonus.

Cora quickly realizes Stig is hiding something from her. To make matters worse, she’s plagued with breathtakingly naughty dreams starring a shadowed lover who bears a startling resemblance to her host. And just what the hell is going on down in the basement at night?

Stig needs to get Cora out of his house but his inner beast has other ideas. He’s found his mate and she’s not going anywhere…

Book Two of the Dragon Heat Series
Release Date – 10/1/13

Griffin Cadogan is shocked to see Avani Monroe, sworn enemy of his dragon family, walk into his gym. With his mating phase soon approaching, Griffin is curious as to why she has to come enemy territory knowing the risks. Not only does she surprise Griffin and his cousin, Mad, by coming to enemy territory, but what she wants is borderline insane-Griffin must help her have a baby.

After her mother’s line was annihilated by the Knights, Avani accepted her duty to ensure the continuation of their unique dragon breed. She’s searched the dragon registries and Griffin is the most likely candidate for her crazy plan. Working up the courage to approach a man who considers her an enemy wasn’t easy but she manages to calmly lay out her carefully orchestrated plan.

But Griffin isn’t about to agree to her harsh terms. If she wants him to father her child, he intends to play an active role in his offspring’s life, not simply walk away as she requires. Shocked by her instant attraction to him, she agrees to his terms. Once together, they realize their connection is about more than creating a child, but that happiness is short-lived when Mad suddenly disappears. Knowing the dragon slayers are behind it, Griffin must risk it all to save the ones he loves

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created.

As a co-ed studying biochemistry and genetics at Texas A&M University, Lo dabbled in creating naughty tales to entertain her friends. Study for a midterm or pen a deliciously dirty story to delight her small band of fans? Not surprisingly, Lo is now on an extended sabbatical from college.

Luckily, Lo stumbled onto the world of erotic romance publishers. She realized there were other readers and writers who loved and craved breathtaking romance with the spiciest of love scenes. She took a chance and submitted her first novella. The rest is history.

Lo lives in Texas with her husband, daughter and big blubbering Great Dane with mommy issues. She also writes super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica with a New Adult flavor under the pen name Roxie Rivera

About the Books

Miami, Mistletoe & MurderMiami, Mistletoe & Murder (Red Stone Security #4)

Fierce and sexy, former Marine Travis Sanchez has always held himself back from the rest of the world, using his tattoos and piercings as armor. But when the woman he’s wanted for months is threatened, he knows it’s time to strip away the bad boy image and show her just how much he wants to be with her. As one of Red Stone Security’s best contractors, Travis is trained for almost any situation. But nothing prepares him for the most dangerous threat of all: the one to his heart.

Kind-hearted Noel Baskov’s only wish for the holidays is that her Miami coffee shop has a successful Christmas season. But her focus on work is interrupted when the family of the young girl she mentors is threatened, and the man she’s been lusting after for months steps in to handle it. Unfortunately the danger is far from over. Can this sexy and mysterious warrior protect Noel, or will he be the one to shatter her heart?

Warning: features a heroine determined to fight for those she cares about, a protective hero with a very interesting piercing, and some holiday magic.

 

 

His to ProtectHis To Protect (Red Stone Security #5)

No woman ever affected Red Stone Security expert Kell Malone quite like Charlotte Bastien. It’s been a year since that incredibly intense night they spent together and he still can’t get her out of his head. When he discovers she’s in Miami—with their three-month-old son—he’s stunned. Hurt. He’s also determined to know his child, and if she’ll give him the chance, to make a life with the stubborn woman who has sworn off love.

Single mom Charlotte came to Miami to tell Kell about their son, and that’s all—she won’t open her heart just to have it trashed by another man. Unfortunately, Kell makes that hard. He’s everything she wants, and just one look from him unleashes wicked memories and wild desires. When she witnesses a murder and lands on a hit list, Kell steps up to protect her and their son, but winning her love proves to be the hardest mission he’s ever undertaken

 

 

 

Breaking Her RulesBreaking Her Rules (Red Stone Security #6)  -> My Review

Iris Tarango is a small-town girl from the wrong side of the tracks; she’s also a decorated former Marine who fought hard to become one of Red Stone Security’s most respected agents. But her perfectly ordered life is turned upside down when she’s assigned to guard the sexy, dominating tycoon she shares a secret history with. The instant Iris walks back into the billionaire’s diamond-studded orbit, the wild attraction flares between them…and her reputation, objectivity, and heart are in trouble.

After an attempt on his life, business magnate Wyatt Christiansen calls in major favors to hire Iris as his bodyguard. He knows she’s the best, though he has another motive too. He sees this as his final chance to win her heart. But when danger spins out of control, all Wyatt can think of is getting Iris out of harm’s way—even if it means losing her love in the end.

Unfortunately, the killer seems to know their every move. If Wyatt and Iris don’t figure out who put out the hit, they’ll lose more than their chance at happiness together.
