Review: Gods (Eirik #3) by Ednah Walters

Eirik has finally accomplished his mission, but he paid a steep price. Now he must start all over to prove his love to the woman he can't live without. But can he protect her from her kind without crossing the line? As new threats emerge, Celestia and Eirik will learn how far they must go to protect each other and their love.

My Thoughts:
Just when I thought Ednah could not possibly top Heros (Eirik #2) she did!  She did that amazing thing again where she combined 3 different books & made the story AMAZING!  We finally get the answers we've been waiting for that started with Demons (Eirik #1) and continued in Heros.  While Eirik & Celestia's love blossoms & Celestia discovers more about her abilities, Goddess Hel does some changing too.  It was wonderful to see the changes in her as she finally opened her heart.  There is some major shock & awe in this book folks!  SHOCK & AWE!!!  You will love the twists.  This was a wonderful conclusion to Eirik & Celestia's story and I know we'll still see them in the conclusion to Torin & Raine's journey.  I can not sing Ednah's praises enough.  She has done amazing things with this series.  If you haven't started any of the Runes series I urge you to do so ASAP!

Recommended for ages 16 & up.  Mild to moderate sexual situations & adult content.

Review: Ramping UP by Zoe Dawson

The world of extreme sports just got a little steamier! Zoe Dawson’s pulse-pounding, emotional series follows the wily young female agents of Mavrick Allstars as they chase their dreams—and meet the chiseled athletes who make them come true.

Helena “Lena” Mavrick is ready to prove that she can play with the big boys. Working at her father’s internationally renowned agency, Mavrick Allstars, Lena sets her sights on one of the most coveted phenoms out there: a twenty-four-year-old surfer caught ripping it in a viral skateboarding video. Signing him would be a huge win—and his marketing appeal isn’t the only thing that makes Lena’s heart skip a beat. Trouble is, fraternizing with the client is against company policy.

Professional surfer Gunner Smith lives under the absolute control of his coach—until he takes the ultimate risk and starts over as a skateboarder. Gunner swore he wouldn’t give up his freedom again, but Lena’s out-of-the-blue offer makes him think long and hard. She’s smart, she’s bold, she’s got sponsors lined up around the corner—plus she’s drop-dead gorgeous. He’s just not sure his coach will let him get away that easily, because he’s not just Gunner’s coach, he’s also his father.

Gunner is used to hiding his tortured past. But when his steamy affair with Lena threatens their future, he must decide whether he will sacrifice everything for the woman who’s stolen his heart.

My Thoughts:
This book was fast paced and easy to stay interested in.  Helena Mavrick, a sports agent for her father's company Mavrick Allstars, is given a diamond in the rough when Gunner Smith is dropped into her world.  His raw talent & bad-boy persona are just two of the reasons she will do anything to manage his career.  Gunner has spent his whole life living his father's dream of becoming a surfing legend.  Once he finally walks away from that he opens up his life to follow where his heart has always been.  Skating has always been Gunner's escape and now Helena is offering him a chance to make it his passion.

Gunner & Helena have off the chart chemistry.  Keeping their hands off each other isn't the only obstacle they have to face to get his career on track.  I love how Helena supports Gunner while he fights to break free from his father's grip.  He showed great resolve and didn't let his circumstances turn him into something twisted & broken.  She gives the exact support he needs to find his courage and strength as forges his new path.  Gunner shows Helena that winning isn't all that life is about.  He helps to remind her that integrity goes so much farther than just staying on top.  
I did find myself skimming over some of the skating stuff.  I was just eager to get to more juicy parts of the story.    Overall great story.  I do wish their had been a little more development in Gunner & Helena's relationship.

Recommended for 18 & up.  Lots of sexual & mature content.

I received this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
