Switched (Trylle, #1)  
 5 of 5 stars false 
When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might've been telling the truth. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - and it's one she's not sure if she wants to be a part of.


Switched is the first book in the Trylle Trilogy, it follows a young girl named Wendy who is really a changeling. All her life Wendy has been different than any one else, when she was six her mother was convinced that she wasn’t her real child so she tries to kill Wendy. When Wendy is seventeen a boy named Finn shows up and tells her that she was really was switched at birth and that she needs to go back to her real home. Wendy goes with Finn after being attacked, she goes with Finn and finds out she is royalty. Wendy doesn’t feel like she fits in at her new home either and there are people who are trying to keep her from becoming queen. Her love for Finn is forbidden but she is willing to give up anything to be with him. While Wendy is trying to figure out where she fits into this new world or if she even wants to be there, new threats arrive and change everything for her. I loved this book Wendy was smart and snarky, she wanted to change things and she didn't follow people blindly. Finn was a bit annoying, Wendy is trying to change things and he hanging on to old beliefs. This book was one of the better first books in a series that I have read. The characters were well rounded and the story really pulls you in from the beginning. I wanted to know what happened to the characters and I was mad because I didn't want the book to end.

Perfect Mate 18+

The following review is for 18+ reviews
  Perfect mate (Mate Series, #1)
 2 of 5 stars false 

"Monsters do exist...and they re the good guys. "

Lillian Rosewood leads an ordinary, boring life working as the manager of a psychiatric hospital. The highlights of her day, other than her skinny hot chocolate, are the hunky guards who work in the secure section. Until a late-night emergency is wheeled in.

Captain Jack Harper is insane, drop-dead gorgeous...and just had his abdomen shredded. Despite the fact they're not an emergency room, Lillian can't turn him away and risk a death on her hands. Unable to get the handsome soldier out of her mind, Lillian sneaks into the restricted area to check on him. What she finds is beyond belief. Somehow Jack has managed to heal himself from a near-fatal wound in mere hours.

When one of the doctors, Walker, attempts to rape her, things go from bad to worse. In the blink of an eye, Jack is loose and Walker is dead... and Lillian must accept a truth about her rescuer that will change her world forever. What if the patients aren't insane? What if their stories of secret government experiments and monsters are true?

Warning: Contains blood, mayhem and nude werewolves operating heavy weaponry. Large amounts of sarcasm and smart-ass vampires may offend some readers. No civilian hospital staff were harmed in the making of this story


 Perfect mate is the first book in Mina Carters new Mate series, the army has created vampires, werewolves and zombies and now the wolves want there freedom. Lillian lives for her job as a psychiatrist and one day a man is brought into her facility with what looks like life threatening wounds. When she goes into check on him and is almost raped by one of the armies’ doctors she finds out that the man is not just a man but an alpha werewolf. He saves her then he lets the rest of his wolves free and the army sends in zombies and other men to kill them. The patient Jack knows that Lilly is his mate and he has to get her and the rest of his pack free from the hospital and find a way to save them from the government that created them and now wants to destroy them. Jack is a hot bad ass protector who takes charge and knows what needs to be done. Lilly is smart and cares for her patients but I think there she should be in the hospital and not working at the hospital. I really wanted to like this book, the description caught me right away, the book is well written and the idea of the government creating supernaturals was intriguing. The hero is hot and the secondary characters are funny and know how to kick butt. The vampire that is leading the team after them provides a nice challenge. But I just couldn't get over the fact that the heroine spent the entire time thinking about how hot the hero was and how much she wanted him. It's a romance so yes the main characters are supposed to want each other, however, the heroine is not supposed to be ready to die and start talking about the hero butt. There were so many times that Lilly started going on about Jacks body, how hot he was and what she wanted to do to him, that I just wanted to yell at her hey look around you may be dying at any second. While the premise was good and I did like most of the characters, I just couldn't get past the inappropriate timing of the comments from the heroine.

Charity Rising

Charity Rising (Charity, #2)  
4 of 5 stars false 
 In this fast-paced, two-part sequel Charity is finally settling into her new role as alpha female to the Drake pack. With Prom and Graduation approaching, this should be the best time of her life, but something is wrong with Levi—dangerously wrong. With his odd behavior growing daily and her now blackening connection symbol, Charity is spurred into action. It’s a race against time, and any delay could result in the death of the only man she can ever love. Can she save him in time? If so, will their undying love and a stronger-than-ever heart connection be enough to withstand the damage created?
This installment in the Charity Series is fully loaded with everything from unlikely alliances, battles and romance, to humor, mystery, and even betrayal, as well as a few other surprises along the way. You have officially been warned


Charity Rising is the conclusion to Charity and Levis love story. Charity is the alpha female of the pack, she is worrying that Levi will have to take another wife if she doesn’t get pregnant and have a boy. She is trying to keep the packs secret and for some reason Levi is acting weird. When Levis connection symbol turns black and everyone thinks Charity cheated on Levi, Charity has to find out what is going or they both will die. Charity is very different in this story than she was in the last, she has lost a lot of the hard edge that surround her. Levi is harder though, he is the pack alpha so he has had to make hard decisions and you can see how it is affecting him.

>>>>>>>Spoiler Alert……Don’t read this if you don’t want part of the book spoiled for you. I liked how they found out that Levi had a twin. I get that Charity didn't know the Levi had a twin, but when his identity is revealed she still can’t tell them apart. Come on if I were Levi I would be super pissed that my wife just flashed herself in lingerie to my brother because she thought it was me. Spoiler ended<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

I liked how the series ended I thought it was very appropriate, even though I did have a problem with certain parts of the book I still loved it. Once again Kinney creates a vivid and realistic world with just enough conflict to keep the reader interested. I am sad to see the end of Charity and Levi, but I think that the ending was done wonderfully.

Bound by Blood 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers
  Bound By Blood (Bound, #1)
5 of 5 stars false 
It’s an Immortal War…

Vampires and werewolves have been blood enemies for centuries, but now a new threat is rising...demons are escaping from hell and those demons are intent on wiping out both the vamps and the werewolves.

In order to stop the demons, pureblood vampire princess Morgan LaBeaux agrees to the treaty offered by werewolf alpha Jace Vaughn. She'll mate with him, share her blood with him...and in return, the wolves will aid the vampires in this battle.

But Morgan doesn’t realize just how dangerous the wolves can truly be. Jace has been waiting years to claim her. He’s set a trap for his princess, and now that he has her, Jace doesn’t plan to let her go. He’ll send the demons back to hell, and he’ll keep his vampiress—forever.

Warning: This novella is a sexy paranormal romance. As such, it contains vampires, werewolves, and demons--oh, my! It also contains hot sex and adult language. You have been warned!


Morgan is a vampire princess who is sent to Jace the werewolf alpha, in hopes of uniting the two species so that they can defeat the demons and the close the door to hell. When they meet, both of them realize that their mating will be in more than name only. Morgan is a good combination of innocence and knowledge. She stands up for what she believes in and fights hard for the people she loves. Jace is a hot alpha werewolf who has a past filled with violence. He has watched and protected Morgan for years without her knowing it. He is willing to go to hell itself to keep her safe. This novella while short was a good story. Things were a bit rushed and I wish it could have been a full length novel, because I loved wanted to see more of the main characters. Eden has a way of describing the fight scenes that make me feel as if I am in the middle of it. She made me see the sprays of blood and I could smell the brimstone. The romance was fast and intense, I wanted the couple to work out. When I heard how Jace had protected Morgan my heart melted. I liked this novella and the only thing that could make this story better would be to make it a full length book
