Army Beast Resurrection: Stavros Returns 



Synopsis
Although surviving an IED blast, Stavros, a tiger shifter, was severely wounded. He made his way to Alaska nursing these injuries. He does not contact his team because he thinks he is too damaged. While in Alaska, he meets Amari.

Amari is a fun loving sweet nurse falls hard for Stavros. She has to make him understand that she does not care about his scars. When Amari’s past threatened her life, Stavros needs to call his old team to help him before it is too late.

Opinion
The story was the standard beauty and the beast trope.

I thought it was entertaining even though the villain was super predictable. The story was short and not heavy on character development. The story was a standalone romance but I think if you read the other books in the series, it will help you understand Stavros’ character.

I did not read the other books, but I did think it was necessary for Stavros to swallow a lot of pride when he has to ask his brothers for help. I knew he would since that was essential to the plot.

The story loses a heart ❤️ because it could have benefited from an editor. A few examples include: Kindle location 469 (you’re and your) 758 (finding and funding) and 784 (in and on).

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
Borrow. I think the story was too short and as mentioned the typos need to be corrected. This is a book I’m paying for, not a text message that I am trying to decipher.

I received these books in exchange for my honest opinion

ICE (The Elite Forces Series Book 1) 

FIRE (Elite Forces Series Book 2)

This story is a two books series. The first book ends in a humongous cliffhanger. Unless you want to only imagine everything turns out all right I do not recommend only buying one book. Buy both of them.

One of the things that I like to about this story was the fact Jade was an army ranger. She had to have gone through very rigorous training in order to achieve this level in the army. Although, as the story opens she is about to make a mistake that changes the course of her career.

I thought it was crazy how they first met and even crazier that within minutes of the meeting each other they were already banging. No judging or slut shaming because you have to understand what was happening and that means you need to read the book.

Maverick was in a class by himself. I cannot even begin to describe him. There were just so many different facets of his personality that it is difficult to say what type of person he is. What I can say is that he is a pure hottie of an alpha male.

In the second book we are delving more into Jade’s emotions and how she is dealing with the high intensity life that they have because of the dangerous nature of their chosen careers. At this point, I think the more that I got to know her, the crazier she became. It is not why you might think. She was such a control freak about her life because of past experiences. Falling in love with Maverick was not part of her plan. And when things were not in her control, she did not know how to handle it.

There were twists and turns in the plot that I did not think I could handle it all. But in the end, I was in a good place. Now I am ready to read the next book in the series.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY!!! Don’t be confused. This is not a sweet, cozy romance. This is an intense, in your face, high energy romance with so much action that you wonder what else could possibly happen.

Excerpt

“You going to stand there all day or get this sh*t done and over with, b*tch?” He stands with his arms spread open as if he’s waiting for me to drive the first punch. That’s exactly what I do. I nail him with a right hook that lands on the side of his temple. He staggers, but before I have time to swing again, he plows into me with a kick to my stomach, followed by a punch that leads to a crunching noise from my nose. Blood spurts down my face, and pain ricochets from one side of my head to the other. His arms go up like he’s challenging me to come at him again.
“Come on, Harris, you need this. I can take it, you p*ssy. Let’s go.” And I explode with that phrase. I grab him by the back of the neck, rolling us to the floor. Fists start flying fast and furious as if we’re fighting for our lives. An explosive punch to his ribs sets him off exactly how I want him. He attacks with the force I need. Brutal punches to my face bring pain to the surface before a sweep of my leg has me dropping back down to the floor. I welcome the pain. I need the pain. It eggs me on and revitalizes me in a way I crave.
My next move is both spontaneous and unpredictable even to myself. I move swiftly and smoothly, snapping up off the floor. A swift kick to his jaw before I tumble backwards leaves him stunned and holding his face.
This is a fight with no rules, no winner, where neither one of us is looking to be the undisclosed master. It’s a language all of its own. This is a lesson I need and one he’s been dying to give. Only, I don’t plan to make it easy on him.
I know I’m hiding behind a mask of despair, and knowing this is when I let my guard down, when I decide to surrender and allow the man who has been doing his job as a friend to try and bring me back to the man I once was. I allow him to get one last destructive punch in. This is the one I need the most. The one that clearly knocks me on my g*ddamn ass until I’m lying there breathing heavily.
My mind starts to tell me it’s time to move on. My chest explodes inside, and I finally feel the shards of reality that are heating up the blood pumping through my veins. It’s time to realize she isn’t coming back to me. It’s time for me to take the lesson of life that has pulled me under this rough, intense current of self-destruction. It’s his punch to the side of my head that f***ing makes me feel I’m alive. Here’s the best part though, I don’t care if I’m alive. I care about nothing. This isn’t living, and yet it’s all I’ve got.
