BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme, inspired my The Story Siren and Pop Culture Junkie, where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed or bagged (won or gifted) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, on going events and book movie or television news. 


Viper (Sons of Sangue)
Patricia Rasey 

Kane 'Viper' Tepes is one of the oldest living descendants of Vlad III. Vampirism is in his blood. So is being the President of the Sons of Sangue. Those who break motorcycle club rules that protect their coven are dealt swift punishment. No exceptions. Until one pretty little detective has him compromising his beliefs, and endangering his position as head of the MC.

Vampirism had Cara Brahnam turning tail and leaving behind her life in Pleasant. Now, ten years later, she's back as lead detective and wants to see the person responsible for draining the women of Lane County brought to justice, no matter what deal the gang of miscreants has struck with the sheriff. Or the fact that her number one suspect is the sole reason she fled in the first place.

Now someone has targeted Cara as the next victim and Kane must join in the hunt to find the ancient vampire that wants her dead.

Prey (Shifters, Book Four)
Rachel Vincent  

Sometimes playing cat and mouse is no game...Play? Right. My Pride is under fire from all sides, my father's authority is in question and my lover is in exile. Which means I haven't laid eyes on Marc's gorgeous face in months. And with a new mother and an I-know-everything teenager under my protection, I don't exactly have time to fantasize about ever seeing him again.

Then our long-awaited reunion is ruined by a vicious ambush by strays. Now our group is under attack, Marc is missing and I will need every bit of skill and smarts to keep my family from being torn apart. Forever.

I'll Be Slaying You
Cynthia Eden 

Sandra "Dee" Daniels is a vampire's worst nightmare. Sure, she couldn't get up to five-six in the highest heels money can buy--not that she ever wears heels. But the monsters in her past and the stake in her boot are enough to keep most bloodsuckers interested in staying undead out of Baton Rouge.

But there are changes afoot on her turf. Rumors of a Born Master in town--a vampire so powerful he can make the streets run with blood. And a new face in Dee's dive bars and alleyways--Simon Chase, a strong, sexy shadow with a haunted past of his own. Simon knows a lot about the dark side of Dee's work. He knows even more about how to make her body spark with desire. But the hot lust shimmering between them is only the beginning. Because Simon also knows a secret that will change Dee's life--if she can live long enough to uncover it.


Arrested by Love
Virna dePaul
eBook Anthology

Though Claire Fullerton, a respected journalist, isn’t afraid to walk on the wild side, she’s terrified that unleashing her inner vixen will expose her to getting hurt. But when Claire is captured by a notorious gang of bikers, she recognizes a friendly face from her darkest fantasies: undercover cop Ty Williamson, who has managed to infiltrate the gang to bring them down from the inside. Now Ty’s determined to bind Claire to him and prove that he wants all of her: the good with the bad. In fact, the badder she is, the better they’ll be—together.
People used to call her Sure-Thing-Sarah, but the only thing Sarah Larson’s sure about these days is the torch she’s carried for undercover cop Luke Anderson. Four years ago, Sarah made the biggest mistake of her life: leaving Luke to marry another cop. Now, a year after her divorce, Luke’s back in her life—ready to convince Sarah that he’s the one when it comes to love. But Sarah has a big fear—that her dangerously possessive ex-husband is out to make sure that her second chance at happiness is destroyed forever.
As a former centerfold, Jenna Mills is a pro at deflecting male attention, and with good reason. A painful past has made her mistrustful of all men—and hell-bent on getting revenge on one in particular. But first she needs help overcoming her fear of physical intimacy. And honorable cop Noah James might just be the perfect place to start. Noah’s used to making a woman feel safe, in bed and out. But when Jenna makes him an indecent proposal, Noah’s willing to give her everything she’s asking for . . . and more.

The Redemption of Kayden and Callie
Jessica Sorenson 

The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is out. Worse, he's facing charges for battery. The only way he stands a chance against the charges is if Callie speaks up, something he'll never ask her to do.

Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But saving him means admitting her secrets aloud. Callie and Kayden are stronger than they think, especially when they're together. Together they move forward, face their demons, and finally start to heal from their traumatic pasts.

  1. OOoh nice! I loved Rachel's Shifters series!! This one is one that really sets the stage for the last few books!! Hope you enjoy it!!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

    1. Jessica,
      I love it that you always stop by to check me out **waggles eyebrows** Thanks so much for that.
      Heading over to check out what you've bagged!
      I am a little worried about reading Prey...I've gotten a spoiler about it and wasn't happy **sniffle...

  2. Viper looks and sounds yummy. Different with a Vampire and MC must check it out.


    1. WD~ I love it when you peek in to visit me :)
      I am reading Viper right now, and it's just okay. Nothing to wave my arms crazily around and squeal about. Bummer.
      But I have to head over to your world right now to check out what goodies you got!

      Thanks for stopping by!

    2. Darn it I checked it out and bought it right after visiting you. Amazon had all 4 and 5 star reviews. I have no freakin will power when it comes to a bike babe. I seem to like my biker babes raw and gritty and not faint of the heart story lines.

    3. WD :) I have burned before by awesome 4/5 star reviews. It amazes me how someone can read the same book as you and rave about it and when you read it, you're like, "WTF????Really????"
      Just goes to show you just how subjective reviews are...
      Viper isn't bad, just not as kick-ass, "OMG it's so freaking good, I can't stand it" as I was hoping.

  3. Looks like you got some great books! I have the Shifters series, but haven't gotten around to starting it yet. Enjoy!

    1. Andrea~ Thanks for stopping by. The Shifters series is pretty good. I enjoy reading it and love the way Rachel writes. Hope you enjoy them when you finally get to reading them.

  4. Ooohh PREY looks and sounds delish! I have yet to try any of her books, she's on my must-try list.

    1. Braine!
      I am really enjoying this series, and have been behind for a while. It seems like I am always trying to catch up, lol
      Thanks for stopping by and need to check out your goodies.


I love getting comments...tell me what you thought of my post!
