    Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

    Okay don't know what is going on with these last two novellas but I am just not feeling them. There was something missing in both Reese brothers' books. I just didn't feel that special something that made me connect. Don't get me wrong it wasn't a bad read, it just wasn't that great awesome read I am so use to with Rebecca Zanetti, who in my eyes is amazing. I seen that there is a novella coming out in 2017 named Talen. I can't find any info on it but I can't wait to get my hands on it either wa Okay don't know what is going on with these last two novellas but I am just not feeling them.

The three vampire brothers are presented in three short novels from the 1001 Nights series: 1. Teased for Chalton Reese 2. Tricked for Jared Reese 3. Tangled for Theo Reese The story of Jared and Ronni started in the previous book, “Teased”. Ronni is Olivia’s (Chalton’s mate) best friend. She is dying from an incurable heart disease. Chalton’s brother, Jared, has volunteered to mate with her and as a result make her immortal and save her. Jared used to be a pirate and now he is a paid assassin. He was born during a time that women were delicate little flowers and men were the strong ones who were protecting their ladies. As a result he does not like initially the fact that Ronni is feisty and that she prefers to look after herself and not depend on the others. The book has many mysteries: -Who is trying to kill the Reese brothers? -Who has hacked their accounts? -Who is after Jared’s old girlfriend? -Who poisoned Ronni? I think the book had a lot of potential. Unfortunately I had the same problem here as the one I had in the last book. Ronni was too stupid to live too many times. I think again the female character is the main weakness of the novel. There is a scene where Olivia and Ronni wanted to join forces and chase the bad guys in a “Thelma to Louise, Monica to Rachel, Tina Fey to Amy Poehler” kind of way (Olivia’s words, not mine!) without telling anything to their mates. I honestly wanted to slap them both. And then slap them some more.

    WOW!! What a delightfully intense novella. Somehow Rebecca Zanetti found a way to pack a full story into a few pages, giving enough to satisfy me while at the same time I'm clamoring for more!

There were so many unrealistic elements to this story but it was part of what made it amazing. These unrealistic elements are part of what I love and appreciate so much of Paranormal Romance. Jared was oh so sexy, Alpha, scary, intelligent, protective and dominant. Veronica was smart and sassy, the perfect match for the strong and vicious vamp. Now I am excited to add not only the rest of this author's work to my TBR because her writing was THAT GOOD, but I'm also adding the short stories that comprise the 1001 Dark Nights anthology.

    This little novella had a heck of a power struggle between the hero and heroine. More so than any other couple in this series. More importantly, how was he going to keep a mate safe who didn’t want to be kept safe? While I didn’t enjoy the other woman drama, I did enjoy the fact that no matter how hard Jared worked to isolate and protect Veronica, she was going to do what needed to be done.

This is not a heroine who makes TSTL decisions, but one who is using her brain to solve the mystery of who killed a close patient of hers and attempted to kill her as well. As always, it’s got some hot steamy goodness, some bloody gory violence, and great secondary characters. Rebecca Zanetti knows how to do novellas right. And just because this made me smile: “You’ve lost your mind,” she stuttered. “Yes. Yes, I have,” he said, his eyes wild. “One week of being mated to you and I’ve lost any semblance of sanity I ever had. Listen here, woman. I’m wild. I’m the crazy one. You will not turn me in to the voice of reason. I won’t allow it.” Dual POV Some OW drama although he has no feelings for her No apparent triggers – well, except for blood and gore if that’s not your thing

I have an addiction, its one I am proud of, and that is that I absolutely cannot stop reading the books that Rebecca Zanetti releases, that in any way take me back to the Dark Protectors world. Tricked picks up where the previous 1001 Dark Nights novella Teased left off and this time it is Jared Reese who is struck by the love bug! A predator… harder to catch that the wind. These novellas are in essence quick reads, there is a long running story playing out through them which I like as it keeps things tied together plot-wise, and although every character has the authors usual darkly sexy dominance for the men, and sassy, snarky confidence for the women, don’t expect massive amounts of depth or development with the relationship building, because they basically go – • “You’re mine…” • "But I don’t want to be with you." • “You’re mine. I will take you now” • "Don’t tell me what to do. Okay, take me." • “You’re mine. You will do as I say.” • "Okay, I love you." • “You’re still mine, and I love you too.” This is a relationship path that generally works for this author, and seeing as we are looking at a bunch of alpha-vampires, it fits the brief pretty well. "Listen here, woman. I’m wild. I’m the crazy one. You will not turn me in to the voice of reason. I won’t allow it." Jared, ticked all of those expected boxes, and Ronni pretty much did as well, so it wasn’t a struggle to pass a few hours with this couple. "I’m not the right woman for you…" "...You could be." Rebecca also sets up the next novella pretty well in that Theo Reece and the woman he is inevitably going to end up with are both part of this story, and I am looking forward to more Dark Protectors updates when Tangled releases in May 2017.

A feisty heroine, an alpha hero, hot vampire sex and lots of action, this is a great read, and a fantastic addition to the Dark Protectors series!

A feisty heroine, an alpha hero, hot vampire sex and lots of action, this is a great read, and a fantastic addition to the Dark Protectors series! Jared is the brother of Chalton Reese (tech genius of the Realm). Jared was introduced in Teased, where his story was hinted at – an ex-pirate and vampire who agrees to help his new sister-in-law by saving the life of her dying best friend, by mating her. Yep, sex and a vampire bite and Ronni will be not only healed of the mysterious poison that is killing her, but immortal as well. With no other choice, and with not long to live, she bravely takes the opportunity to live, even knowing what the consequences of her actions will mean. “Here’s the deal. I want to live.” “Good.” His expression smoothed out. “But I’m not willing to be a mistress.” God, she wanted to live. To see the future. To have children. “I understand we can only have sex with each other, and I do like sex … I’m not a sure thing. Meaning, you have no rights to me.” He studied her, energy radiating from him and brushing along her flesh. “First of all, no woman is ever a sure thing. Even during my time as a pirate on the high seas, I never forced a woman. Any and every time is your choice, and I would never force you. Ever.” Her chest settled. “Good. We’re on the same page. And second?” He leaned in, his nose nearly touching hers. “Second of all, if we mate, I have every right to you. Don’t you forget it.” Jared’s heart was broken in the past. He has no interest in love or a relationship, and he saves Ronni’s life figuring that having a mate won’t be so bad – in a few hundred years they’ll have children, but he won’t have too much involvement in Ronni’s life. But after their life-saving night together, and once Ronni is healed and well, and back to her spitfire best, he’s captivated. Veronica was spirit and defiance, and she brought something out in him that felt energized. Absolute. Primitive. I love this relationship! It’s all fire and passion as two people who don’t particularly like each other share an intense connection and a wild lust for each other that very quickly escalates into more. Ronni is on the hunt for the person that hurt her, putting herself in even more danger, and Jared – being the protective alpha that he is – dives in to save her. They clash over and over again, but they soon find that their attraction is more than purely physical, and they come to care for each other deeply. But with Ronni’s would-be killer getting closer and closer, and a blast from Jared’s past appearing to shake everything up, the two of them are in for the fight of their lives before they can figure out what’s happening between them. This is such an exciting read. There’s lots of action, excitement, and vampire awesomeness – in and out of the bedroom – the banter and quips fly thick and fast, and Jared’s alpha-ness and Ronni’s smartass sass make for some fantastic interactions. Their chemistry is sizzling through all that they face, and the romance ties in beautifully as they follow their hearts and embrace everything that is happening between them. “You believe in fate?” He shrugged. “Have to. You’re too perfect, we’re too good together, to just have been a fluke.” He brushed her hair away from her face. “I’ll spend eternity loving you, baby.” *swoon!* Chalton and Olivia are a part of the story, and younger brother, Theo was also brought into the action. The dynamic between the brothers is fantastic, and Theo’s book, Tangled: A Dark Protectors Novella, is set up beautifully – that’s definitely going to be an interesting one! I really enjoyed this novella, though I feel that Jared and Ronnie got gipped a bit – they were such interesting characters with such a great dynamic, I feel like their story should have been longer. I would have loved this to be a full-length novel so we could get more background on both of them and watched their coming together in more detail. But I loved the story that we did get, and had a great time reading it. 4 stars. Advanced Reader Copy generously provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Mindy Lou's Book Review

    Jared & Ronni's story: So far in the series, this is my least favorite. It's still a really good story and I love seeing the Reese brothers continue in the series, but I'm afraid I hold pretty high standards for RZ. In Jared and Ronni's story, Jared volunteers to mate Ronni to save her life. She's having heart problems that are killing her. Since she's best friends to his brothers mate and has no plans on finding love again, he has no qualms about choosing a mate he does t know.

The part I didn't care for was just as soon as he mates her, his ex, who left him to mate another for duty, shows up and starts trouble. I've not known this author to have other women drama in her stories so it was unexpected. In the scheme of things, it wasn't too bad but still not something I like to read in a "mate" book.

    4 1/2 "Neanderthal Alpha Vampire" Stars! I loved this one. Very, very good novella. Especially for the Dark Protectors world. Jared was seriously a neanderthal! I mean he actually guided her around by her hair at one point. But no worries, Ronnie gave as good as she got. Loved these two. On to Theo! Happy reading!

И сега, един от най-силните, смъртоносни, и невероятно сексапилни вампири е готов да я направи своя половинка, за да спаси живота й. За Джаред няма нищо по-важно от семейството. Когато брат му Чалтън, е готов да жертва любовта си към Оливия, и да се обвърже с приятелката й Рони, за да спаси живота й, Джаред не може да му го позволи. Той самият така или иначе не е възнамерявал да си търси половинка, тъй като жената, която е обичал преди 200 години се е обвързала с друг, затова не вижда проблем в това, да се обвърже с Рони за да я спаси. А и това ще му дава повод да посещава по-често брат си, и ще има възможност един ден да създаде собствено семейство. Всички печелят, ако той се обвърже с Рони. В неговите очи, плана е следният. Прави я своя половинка и всеки си тръгва по пътя. Няколко пъти годишно я посещава, вижда се с брат си и няма никакво обвързване. Рони също смята, че връзката им няма бъдеще. Тя мисли, че като се обвържат и се излекува, ще е най-добре да я заразят с вирус 27 и ще се прекъсне връзката им. А докато дойде това време тя ще намери кой се опитва да я убие. Но както всички знаем много добре, нещата почти никога не се получават така, както очакваме. Враговете на Рони са по-близо от всякога и Джаред не е склонен да я остави да се оправя сама. За капак, жената в която Джаред е бил влюбен преди 200 години се появява, вече овдовяла и решена да си го върне на всяка цена, и гонена от куп врагове, които са готови да смажат всеки по пътя си, за да се доберат до нея. Джаред не просто трябва да предпази половинката си от враговете им, но и да се бори за бъдещето им и да й докаже, че за него винаги ще има само една жена и това е Рони. Адски много ми допадна. Рони е супер борбена мадама, а Джаред е тотален алфа-мъжкар. Който мисли, че противоположностите се привличат, най-добре да прочете книгата, за да види, че и когато двама души са си лика прилика, огъня между тях може да погълне всичко наоколо. Двамата са експлозивна комбинация и обичах всеки един миг в който бяха заедно. <3 Препоръчвам горещо на всички фенове на поредицата <3 <3 <3

There are no paranormal elements to the story except Jared is a vampire who takes his mate Ronnie's blood. I really like the Alpha Male Jared but just couldn't come to care much for Ronnie. This is the last Novella I had on pre order and I won't be ordering anymore at these current prices. They are just not worth it.

Good thing he’s up for a good battle. •••••••••••••• REVIEW: TRICKED (Dark Protectors 7.75) by Rebecca Zanetti is part of the multi-authored 1001 Dark Nights anthology. This is vampire Jared Reese, and former police psychologist Ronni Alexander's story line. We were first introduced to our leading couple in the last novella TEASED where our current heroine had been poisoned and had only weeks to live. Told from dual third person perspectives (Ronni and Jared) TRICKED focuses on the search for the person who poisoned Ronni. With only days to live vampire Jared Reese offers Ronni immortality but there is a caveat with his offer-Ronni would become Jared's mate for all eternity, and neither was looking forward to a happily ever after. What ensues is the back and forth, combative relationship between a woman who likes her independence, and a vampire male who is all about protecting his mate. TRICKED is a story with plenty of action; attacks against Ronni, Jared and their family; and someone from Jared's past looking for a second chance. When the vampires discover that they have been hacked by an unknown source, Jared's brother Theo goes on a hunt of his own. The requisite evil follows two paths: the attack against our story line heroine; and an attack against the Reese family heritage. The premise is exciting and lively; the characters are entertaining and captivating; the romance is a battle of wills and of the heart. Copy supplied for review www.thereadingcafe.com

I also really felt the chemistry between Jared and Ronnie. I really thought this one had a lot more humor in it - there were a few scenes that just cracked me up and I loved the banter between Jared and Ronnie. He looked at her like she'd completely gone insane. "Yes. One of us has to worry about you. You're crazy. Nuttier than 4.5 Stars.

"You've lost your mind," she stuttered. "Yes. Yes, I have," he said, his eyes wild. "One week of being mated to you and I've lost any semblance of sanity I ever had. Listen here, woman. I'm wild. I'm the crazy one. You will not turn me into the voice of reason. I won't allow it." "These feelings. Are they because of the mating?" There had to be a rational explanation. "No. They're because I've lost my mind and I doubt you ever had yours." He tunneled his hands through her hair and leaned in to kiss her, still gentle but somehow insistent. I enjoyed the back and forth between the two and the chemistry was off the pages. I liked that they were still getting to know each other but once Jared became her mate he was committed despite the fact that it was more of an arranged mating. I also loved that Ronnie pushed back and didn't let him walk over her and even though she'd make him really mad she didn't immediately back down. "Did you not get shot at last night?" His voice was a low rumble of mangled rebar mingled with shards of glass. Her lungs seized. Okay. so he was really mad. "I have my gun." "Your gun." He breathed out, tension pouring off him in waves. "You have your little shooter to handle another hit team with automatic weapons. Well shit, Veronica. I didn't know that." She grimaced at his furious sarcasm. "You're overreacting." Wrong thing to say. She knew it the second the last word left her mouth, but it was too late to grab it back." Overall, a great novella for a wonderful series!

    Only Rebecca Zanetti can get away with writing these types of over the top alpha cavemen and do it so well that you keep coming back for more. Even among the males in this series Jared is OTT, which is saying a lot. My eyebrows were close to my hairline the whole time I read this book. What? A feisty heroine, an overprotective hero, some action and a lot of steam - the perfect recipe for an engaging story.

A feisty heroine, an overprotective hero, some action and a lot of steam - the perfect recipe for an engaging story. This is one novella I wish was a full-length book because there was so much to love about both Ronnie and Jared. Their relationship was passionate and intense and they kind of remind me of Talen and Cara. Ronnie was a scene-stealer in every way and I loved her. She was spunky, stubborn and was always leading the charge, which actually made Jared the perfect man for her because he was able to handle her so well. She was also good for Jared because she showed him how an independent woman took care of herself. Between trying to figure out their relationship, finding who was behind Ronnie's ill-health and dealing with a blast from Jared's past, there was a lot going on, all at top speed, all of it very exciting. I can never get enough of this series and every new installment gives me the urge to re-read the previous books. For anyone who hasn't read any of the series, now would be a perfect time to remedy that. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from the publisher. Want more?

    Tricked is only my second novella in Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series; coincidentally, the two stories I’ve read were about two of the three Reese brothers, and Jared Reese meets his ‘arranged mate’ through Chalton’s girl, Olivia, who just so happens to be Ronni Alexander’s best friend and the woman who needs Jared’s help in order to save her life. ‘Sex with a bite’ That’s Ronni’s rather simplistic view about her potential mating with an ex-pirate vampire who vowed to never love again….a Tricked is only my second novella in Rebecca Zanetti’s Dark Protectors series; coincidentally, the two stories I’ve read were about two of the three Reese brothers, and Jared Reese meets his ‘arranged mate’ through Chalton’s girl, Olivia, who just so happens to be Ronni Alexander’s best friend and the woman who needs Jared’s help in order to save her life. ‘Sex with a bite’ That’s Ronni’s rather simplistic view about her potential mating with an ex-pirate vampire who vowed to never love again….a male who wants her submission as well as a permanent bond between them, which means he has her back at all times, even when she doesn’t need nor want to be anyone’s responsibility. There’s definitely a power play between Jared and Ronni as they figure out how to be mated without losing their own identities while feeling an inexplicable pull towards one another, not just for physical release but to serve as a leveling agent for their anger as well as their pain, and what neither Ronni nor Jared ever anticipated was finding the one partner who could both spar with and tame the other at the same time, illustrating just how good they are for one another and just how easily a necessary connection between the two of them in order to allow Ronni to live another day turned into everything they never knew they wanted! I really enjoyed Tricked and the way that Jared and Ronni work to prove themselves to one another as well as to themselves. What’s most interesting about this arranged couple is how alike they are and how easily they push one another’s buttons. Jared is a stubborn alpha male who isn’t used to someone calling him on his shit and frustrating the ever loving hell out of him, but that’s what makes the dynamics between him and Ronni much more exhilarating than any other woman he’s been with, especially the one Jared thought owned his heart and soul. I don’t get to read many paranormal romances anymore, so Jared and Ronni’s story allowed me to head back into a genre that I adore and their book kept me intrigued as well as eager to see them truly claim one another as their true mate. 4 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

    3.5 stars. Ms Zanetti writes good stuff. This was a short story but filled with enough action and romance to satisfy. Although I did find the hero's actions during lovemaking a bit abusive.. guess it's considered a mild form of BDSM? All in all, a short enjoyable read.

Jared is everything you’d expect of an uber alpha vamp. He’s stubborn, a little arrogant and yet his heart is in the right place. Ronnie is one strong woman. Even though she has the Sword of Damocles hanging over her, she doesn’t just curl up and let the poison run its course. She fights and while she will accept help, she won’t let anyone coddle her. While their mating started off as Jared saving Ronnie’s life, it soon morphed into more. The mating bond triggered a few things, but this is one of those stories where the tag line is “you are what I never knew I needed.” The battle of wills between them was highly entertaining and I loved how they came want to be with each other without losing who they were. Tricked was a fun, quick and smexy little novella. The mystery behind who poisoned Ronnie was done well and the new issue that popped up during all the crazy has definitely peaked my interest and I’m looking forward to see how that gets dealt with. ~ Copy received from InkSlinger PR and reviewed voluntarily. ~

Rebecca Zanetti definitely gave me a beautiful escape into a very memorable and fantastic vampire story. Tricked is about Veronica, a woman who is about to die from a poison. She asks Jared a vampire to help her by making her an immortal. Sparks fly between them but there is also danger that will come after them. I was in awe with this story. It was edgy and different. I am one of those people who read a lot of vampire stories. I liked that Tricked had a story that was fresh and unique. I completely fell in love with it. I was so captivated with the scenes that I devoured it so fast. I wanted more and more. I loved the characters. Veronica was spunky, sassy and strong. I loved that he would not let Jared boss her around. It made her very likable character indeed. Jared was so bossy and alpha. I found myself swooning for him. He had a dominant side that was a bit cocky and fun. As a vampire, I loved his protective side for Veronica. Veronica and Jared had chemistry that was so lovable and believable. Their banter lightened up the story. Tricked was a truly amazing book to read. I will definitely be reading more books from Rebecca Zanetti.

    I can't find the worlds to describe my feelings for this book. For the last quarter I am staring at the screen and I have no idea what to say. As usual I began a series I wanted to read for so long from the last book. I had no idea what was going in the universe, but I liked the idea of an arranged marriage (and in this case a mating of convenience) because that equals plenty of angst. This novella though, didn't have a lot of angst and that saddened me a little. There were plenty of opportuniti I can't find the worlds to describe my feelings for this book.

This novella though, didn't have a lot of angst and that saddened me a little. There were plenty of opportunities for mage doses of angst, but the author chose not to go there. It did have a feisty heroine though and the romance was satisfying enough for me. Besides the transition from an arranged mating to one where both parties are in love with each other, there is a little suspense. To be honest, I didn't like the book as much as I wanted to. Don't get me wrong, the book was good, but not good enough for me. I think I had some high expectations from the book and they weren't met. I would recommend the book, but I would recommend to at least read Teased before beginning this one. I am starting to believe that I should have at least read Teased before I read Tricked because the novellas are connected.The couple from Teased appears in this book and Jared and Ronni's story had began in their book. Theo’s book, Tangled, is coming next and his story was teased/set up in this book. And in case you are wondering, yes I have already added it to my TBR list.

Which results convenient for him given that he wants to have a mate and it doesn't bother him if is an exchange of favors. Little did they know, the scorching hot chemistry between them would turn into a love of a lifetime. With his alpha attitude and Ronni's independence a battle begins, figuratively, it's just a matter of time until they figure that the connection is there and how they were meant to be together. Fate always does its job, and it was Jesse and Ronni's turn. That being said, I have to tell you that this story is beautifully written. I do love vampire romances and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to review this beautiful book. Also, I found amazing that Ronni was from Colombia (because I'm from Colombia), a hot blooded latina taming her sexy alpha.

In this case, a mating of convenience should work out well for both of them it would seem. Ronni's life would be saved and Jared would have a mate to provide heirs while not expecting to be completely tied down. Too bad Ronni's books random of sass and independence gets under his skin and activates his protective mode in a way he never anticipated as his heart over rules his head... Ronni has no intention of playing the "helpless little lady" and gives Jared fits as she tries to investigate who poisoned her - and becomes a target for gunfire on several occasions. The sudden reappearance of Ginny, his former flame and one who got away that plays the helpless card a little too much, serves to irritate Ronni more than she expected. Fortunately for her, Jared's brother Theo shares Ronni's suspicions and keeps an eye on the deceptive witch. Tricked packs plenty of action, drama and smexy into the short pages of a novella to provide a well rounded and enjoyable story in the Dark Protectors universe.

    I really do enjoy the 1001 Nights collection, they introduce me to so many new authors, Rebecca being one of them. And after reading this book I want the rest of the series. This a quick read about a friend of a previous character in the series, Ronni. For some reason has been given a death sentence and Vampire Jared wants to help her. By becoming mates he can save Ronni's life. At first they both agree for convenience however it doesn't take long for real feelings to develop.
