Just My Luck (Colleti Warlord 1) 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Just My Luck (Coletti Warlords #1) 
 5 of 5 stars false 
Kaylee Jones is a trouble magnet. Chaos and disaster are her faithful companions. She belongs to the thin blue line protecting Earth from the Tai-Kok, alien predators who consider our world an all-you-can-eat banquet.
Her crappy luck puts her on the alien freaks- most wanted list and lands her in one of their prison cells. Her roommate? A very hungry vampire. Okay, Talree's really a Coletti Warlord who decides to make her his mate. Kaylee's definitely not willing but isn't strong enough to fight him off and now he owns her mind, body and soul.
She'll admit the sex is hot and the bossy jerk has agreed to save Earth from annihilation. The bad news is, Warlords aren't benevolent do-gooder types and there is a price for his help: the women of Earth.
And the really bad news is, Talrees' low-down conniving brother, Malik, has joined forces with the alien freaks and now Kaylee and Talree have to stop them from destroying both their worlds.


Kaylee and everyone in her family are telepathic, they can sense the Tai-Kok, aliens who come to earth and literally eat people. When she once again gets herself in trouble, she ends up meeting the voice in her head. Talree is a vampire like alien; his brother betrayed him and teamed up with Tai-Kok. Kaylee frees Talree when she is kidnapped and now they are bound together. Both of them must fight to keep earth and Talrees planet safe from his brother and others who want to conquer the universe. Kaylee is another one of Kogers kick as heroines; she is sarcastic and kicks butt. She also happens to be a trouble magnet, anything and everything that can go wrong seems to happen to her. Talree is a strong warlord, who has some series alpha male protection issues. This is another fast paced action pact book, with lots of humor and sex thrown in the mix. I loved this book; Koger has a way of describing the different worlds and people in them in a way that is humorous and scary at the same time. The sex scenes were weird and down right funny, it is a good kind of weird. The scenes are not awkward weird, more they are a different species so their anatomy is weird. I loved this book and can't wait to read the next one in the series.

He likes Diana and wants to help her, whether she decides to have a relationship with him or not. I really respected Diana, she had a rough life yet she still had hope. The story was interesting and the added twist and intriguing thrown in really surprised me. I couldn't put this book down, from the first page the last, it was wonderful.

Seduction and Snacks 18 +

This review is for 18 + readers only

Seduction and Snacks (Chocolate Lovers, #1)
3 of 5 stars false
Claire is a twenty-something, single mom that grudgingly helps her best friend sell sex toys while she attempts to make enough money to start her own business to give her foul-mouthed, but extremely loveable (when he's asleep) toddler a better life.
When Carter, the one-night-stand from her past that changed her life forever, shows up in her hometown bar without any recollection of her besides her unique chocolate scent, Claire will make it a point that he remembers her this time.
With Carter's undisguised shock at suddenly finding out he has a four-year-old son and Claire's panic that her stretch marks and slim to none bedroom experience will send the man of her dreams heading for the hills, the pair will do whatever they can to get their happily ever after.

Warning: contains explicit sex, profanity and enough sarcasm to choke a horse


When I look at other reviews for Snacks and Seduction I think, what is wrong with me?I should of taken the warning seriously.
First half of this book, I laughed my arse off, literally, laugh out loud, to the point my husband was looking at me as if I belong in the looney bin and he was going to be the one to cart me there. I loved the characters the plotline was not the norm and everything was flowing along just fine.
Second half of this book, it just became not funny. Who can explain why one minute something's funny and then next minute not? Not I.
I can say it started to wear me down, I started to get annoyed that no one ever said anything series to anybody and even Gavin became not so cute. I needed just a moment of serious, so that everybody would seem a bit more real.
So this one became just a so- so read for me because of that.

Sharp Change 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers
  Sharp Change
 4 of 5 stars false
Only the hottest sex can cool a wolf in heat...

After her sister is bitten by a werewolf, geneticist Sophia Reece begins researching shape-shifters and isolates a gene she calls Furry Beast--FB for short. But in her excitement over her discovery--dancing in the lab is never a good idea--she has a teeny little accident with the samples, one canine, one feline, and winds up landing on the syringes, pointy side up.

Werewolf Chase is head over heels in lust with Sophia. He can't stop thinking about the human's sexy body or how badly he wants to get her naked. But she acts as if he has fleas. So why, all of a sudden, does she stare at him like a wolf in heat? And what smells like cat?

When she experiences her first mating heat, Sophia isn't prepared for the new feelings she's experiencing, and her secret desire for Chase refuses to remain under wraps. For Chase, this is his wildest fantasy come true--to finally get his hands on the curvy, caramel-skinned Latina. But when some serious predators come sniffing around her research, Sophia will have to find out what she's really made of, and Chase will have to decide if he's man--or wolf--enough to make things 


  Sophia is a geneticist whose sister was attacked by a werewolf, so she decides to find a cure. When she finally isolates the gene she ends up accidentally injecting herself with two animals. She doesn’t tell anyone but everyone finds out when she goes into heat. Chase has wanted Sophie a long time and now that she is in heat he decides to make his move. Someone knows what Sophie has discovered and wants her research, now Chase has to protect Sophie and decide if he wants her as his mate. Sophie is a funny woman, she is clumsy, giving and has some self esteem issues. Chase is an alpha womanizer, he wants Sophia and he protects her when needed. This was a cute story with some suspense thrown in to shake things up. I liked the quirkiness of the heroine and the protectiveness of the hero. The sex scenes were hot and the mystery of who was behind the attempt to steal Sophia’s research added an extra conflict to the story. My only problem is that I wanted the story to be longer. I wanted more background on the characters and to see their life a little bit after their problem is solved. Other than that I really enjoyed the book.

Truth 18+

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Truth (Consequences, #2)
4 of 5 stars false

Claire Nichols endured the CONSEQUENCES of Anthony Rawlings’ vendetta.
When she first arrived to his home, her goal was survival. Through strength and compartmentalization Claire captivated her captor. Her resilience in the face of his rule threatened Anthony’s well developed plan. Domination became desire and power turned to love.
Their passion and adoration in a world of opulence appeared perfect. Yet, reality was a roller coaster of emotion. Claire’s world teetered on the edge of sanity as Antony monitored her every move. When given the opportunity to flee, Claire drove away. A fateful decision which set a well laid plan into motion.
However, unbeknownst to either of them, there were others who saw past the perfect facade of Anthony Rawlings. There were others who saw the TRUTH. Conspiracy and unfulfilled promises result in an early prison release for Claire. Not just a release – a pardon. According to the law, her crime never happened!
Will it be that easy? Faced with freedom from her past... can Claire seize it? Can she build a new life, mend her broken spirit, become the woman she once was, and seek her own revenge? Or is it all a game? And does the game master have different plans?
How does Sophia Burke fit into the puzzle that is Tony and Claire? Will her presence affect the future of this well esteemed man? Can he dominate twice? Is that his goal?
TRUTH continues the tumultuous saga of CONSEQUENCES, introduces new players, and uncovers more intrigue. Aleatha Romig skillfully weaves past transgressions through current deception to create a fervent world of obsessed desire. In this reality can an all-consuming relationship survive?
When buried sins are discovered they threaten not only Tony and Claire’s future -- but their very lives! Will the TRUTH be revealed in time?


Wow, another great story in this series. Once again Aleatha Romig has kept my mind reeling with all the different possibilities. Even though I believed I understood where things were at the end of this book, it has be brought to my attention that what I took as a forgone conclusion might actually once again be a wonderful mislead by this fabulously tricky author.
As much as I hated certain character  at the end of the previous book and  thought I would never ever change my opinion , how could I when his crimes were so heinous? I must admit (shamefully) that by the end of this story I was seriously seeing a different side to the much hated Tony. But do I believe it??
Hahaha that is what is so magic about this book!! Who is the good guy?? Who is the bad guy?? I swear my head is spinning round like the chick from Exorcist at how quickly things can change in this wonderfully laid out story.
I found this one also to be much better paced. I wasn't skipping things, even though after thinking about the previous book more, I believe the way it was paced was important and on purpose.
So many wonderful twists and now I have to wait another year before I get any sort of real answers, ahhh so frustrating.
A highly addictive series that will keep you guessing and changing your mind up until the last page, well done again Aleatha Romig, you are awesome!!

Consequences 18

The following review is for 18+ readers.
Consequences (Consequences, #1)
4 of 5 stars false
Besieged by memories of a brutal abduction, Claire Nichols wakes in an unfamiliar bedroom, within a luxurious mansion. Her recollections have one common denominator, the man she just met, Anthony Rawlings.
Unbeknownst to Claire, for a very long time, she has been within Anthony’s sights. Many of the pivotal events in her life occurred, due to his sinister manipulation. Every action has a consequence, and his actions result in their chance meeting.
More than a psychological thriller, Consequences is a vivid story of one woman’s struggle to survive incomprehensible circumstances. Every aspect of her being suddenly depends upon the tall, wealthy, dark haired, dark eyed businessman. Anthony Rawlings is known to the world as prosperous, benevolent, and kind. Claire quickly learns that he can also be a menacing controlling captor.
With few options but concession, Claire attempts to earn her freedom, while enduring a hellish existence that truly appears perfect. Persevering tests and trials, she struggles to retain her pure Midwest values and beliefs. Encouraged by memories of a loving upbringing, she gains strength in the simplest of joys: solitude in nature and good in the face of evil.
His goal in sight, Anthony’s calculated agenda encounters an unforeseen detour. He becomes captivated by Claire’s beauty, resilience, and determination. The interaction of these two compelling characters instigates strong emotions: fear, anger, love, and lust. Claire and Anthony’s tumultuous journey flows into uncharted waters of intrigue and passion.
Utilizing vivid detail, this 167,000-word novel unfolds like a movie, before the eyes of its readers. From the opening criminal abduction, through twists and turns, to the unlikely romantic thrills, the suspense climaxes as Anthony’s motivation becomes evident.
Anthony and Claire must decide if they will stay true to one another, or allow preceding actions to result in justifiable Consequences


Deep breaths! Fluffy bunnies, chocolates and a bottle of whiskey are sure to help me get over this book.
Hold on to your hats, this book is a crazy mix of a wild ride and driving miss daisy.
It was slow; too much useless descriptions that just made it drag out. But I believe the author meant it to be that way to illustrate how awful Claire had it, in her downward spiral from normal to battered housewife, but it was too much, I started skipping bits and I never do that.
But in saying that it built this slow growing level of anxiety, like watching a train wreck I couldn't stop reading. I wanted to reach into the book and get Claire out of there, slap her (but she had a bit too much of that), Anthony really did a number on her.
The whole way through the book you get snippets and clues that sort of don't lead anywhere, you get inklings, and you know he is a bad guy, but then you think maybe he is just screwed up.
 Bad upbringing, like a Christian Grey but on steroids, you know? You find yourself questioning everything. What is Anthony up too?? What are all these two page bits with Nathaniel? Is that his dad? No, it's okay, he married her, he must have some feelings there, and then… oh my god did he just ………..?? God, did he kill……?? Oh god, has he arranged for her brother in law to………..?? What the f*#k???
Anthony is no hero; he is a bad, bad, bad man!! For those who started this under the misunderstanding that this was going to end up like.... say Kitty Thomas's Comfort Food, then you are wrong!!! He beats her, rapes her,(this is within the first few pages so no spoiler) Claire lives under constant fear and he slowly lures her into trusting him, then bam!!! He is the classic wife beating husband that we all hear about!
The ending…. the arrest, the destruction. You find out what it's all for and it's like “OH MY GOD!!!! Where is the justice in that??"
Althea Romig, you wrote a book that I couldn't put down, that made me feel a multitude of emotions (rage primarily at the end, but also fear, anxiety) but for the love of god I couldn't tell you if I enjoyed it. How do I rate something like this??
 I guess I have to put it down to the fact that I couldn't stop reading; I needed to know what was happening, I was totally under this books spell, fully engaged. Isn't that the sign of a good book?? Doesn't matter if the character repulsed me, that his mind trips, was screwing  with me, it was an amazing wild ride. So because of that I have rated this highly.
This book will drive you crazy; it will frustrate the hell out of you. But it is extremely well written and the author is on to something amazing if she can continue this mystery going at this level.
I read it, now for gods sake somebody please recommend me something light and fluffy with lots of good sex and maybe a bit of humor, I need it!
