My Aunt Lucy used to say, “If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else.” She said many wise things I never heeded when she was alive. I want to be the woman that’s okay with hiding from what she fears and letting her big, strong man protect her. But that’s not me. I hate to be scared. I hate the feeling that there is an evil out there tha ...more

Definitely a 5 star read!

I FINALLY FINISHED. Word of advice, never try to read while moving. It's next to impossible.

I really liked this book, but find myself severely frustrated with Aldo. PICK A MAN AND STAY WITH HIM. I fall in love with every guy only to be disappointed when they don't stick. First, with Thomas, I thought he was amazing, only he ended up hurting her so I got over him, especially when Rhett came into the picture. But then the slutbag (not really) leaves him, and the next thing you know she's with Dan
I'm done with this series now

I know Im in the minority on this one, but I just didn't care for this book. The plot was tiring for me and I almost gave up on it a couple times, but
decided to stick it out. I tired of Aldo falling in love so easily. And the cliffhanger endings, nope...............I'm done. I have no interest to see how this story plays out.

I've been waiting Six LONG months for this book and I was so excited when Author B.N. Toler gave it to me early so that I could write an honest review

Hybrid is the second book in the Healer Series and picks up where Healer left off. We find Aldo with her brothers and still crushing on Rhett. But in this book we see her grow into herself and a become the beginning of the woman she is going to be. Aldo is 20 years old for the most part in this novel and we see her take on more adult themes and exp

Honestly, B.N. Toler keeps surprising me and surprising me! In a good way that is!

A previously unknown author to me, B.N’s work was introduced to me when she had contacted me out of the blue to read the first book in the series, Healer. At first I nearly turned it down because of the old cover (*ducks head sheepishly) but after reading some lovely reviews on it I decided to take a chance.

Let me just say that from Healer to Hybrid Ms. Toler keeps us on her A-game! I was enthralled with the
Lani ⚔⚔  the Destroyer ⚔⚔
I should start with saying I loathe love triangles and TSTL heroines, but I had been warned Aldo would get worse before she got better so I was prepared. So many of my book buddies loved this book so this is likely a case of it is just me but I couldn't get over what a complete moron Aldo was. She was beyond juvenile and I prefer to read about character that has some sense. I can understand her reasoning with wanting revenge but she had no cohesive plan to execute it. It was like watching monkey ...more
If you haven’t read HEALER yet, you may not want to read my review of HYBRID until you do. Instead, you can read my review of HEALER here.

B.N. Toler knew not every reader would love Aldo’s impulsive and immature tendencies, but she wasn’t willing to alter Aldo to appease the masses because it wouldn’t be true to who Aldo is and the journey she is on. Ms. Toler said as much in her note to the reader after HYBRID. Man, was she right. I wanted to shake Aldo until her head bounced back and forth, th

I received a copy of this story from the author for an honest review for Amber's Reading Room.

Hybrid picks up directly where Healer left off, with Aldo Lawson waking from a yearlong coma ready to fight. Aldo is a Healer, someone born with the ability to pull energy from one person and transfer it to another to treat illness, injury, and even death. Aldo emerges from her coma knowing the truth that she and her brothers are the by-products of a breeding project to ensure a pure, unlimited food sou

I received an ARC of 'Hybrid' by B.N. Toler in exchange for an honest review, and here are my thoughts -

First off, let me just say that I LOVE this book, it's all kinds of wow. I was captivated, and didn't want to put it down until I was finished...and now I'm squirming in my seat as I wait for 'Savage' to be released!

I received an ARC copy of Hybrid from B.N. Toler for an Honest opinion

Lets see my honest opinion is this book is beyond words. I freakin loved it. Mrs. Toler 1st book Healer was soo well written its hard to believe it was an debut novel. HYBRID was even better (I didn't think the writing could better). Mrs. Toler has wrote such an unique book one I could read over and over again and not get tired of it. B.N. really brought some wonder things to HYBRID, things I didn't think this series need but

Hybrid picks up where Healer left off. Aldo has just awoken from a self induced coma and is now trying to readjust to life again. She knows Rhett and Sarah are keeping secrets from her, but that's okay because she's got a secret of her own. Her quest for vengeance is stronger than ever and she's determined to break away to exact revenge and take down the Vampires responsible for the torture of female Healers. She's eventually able to sneak away in search of the answers Lucy promised her and ends ...more

Our 4.5 Star Review

Aldo is finally awake from her dream world and with Lucy's message she has to decide what to do. Lucy could have left her the information she needs to seek vengeance on those who abused her mother and killed Lucy, but going after the Vampires means leaving her brothers and Rhet behind. After everything he's done for her Aldo has fallen in love with Rhet, but he wants to keeps her safe and not using her abilities to help others keeping under the radar for the rest of their live

If you think you understood Aldo's story in Healer, then prepare yourself to be blown away in Hybrid. The author takes what we think we know about her and totally turns it on its head. You really need to read Healer before reading this book.

Aldo has been lied to, many times, by people she trusted. Trying to decipher what is truth amongst those lies will take Aldo further than she ever imagined.

She has to turn her back on people she trusts. She lies, cheats and manages to immerse herself totally
This book was simply fantastic! Not only was it captivating with multidimensional characters, delicious drama, a plot with more twists and turns than a Texas Tornado, but all of this wonderful delicious stuff was wrapped up in an ever expanding world that became more interesting by the minute.

My only issues with the book was a small amount of lag and a character (Aldo) who at times acted like she was TSTL. Since she's in the process of growing up, I can understand the immaturity, but still one

Ok...where to begin?! Hybrid, book two in the Healer series, has left me wanting!! I am aching for the 3rd installment and dying to see Aldo finally come into her own! Aldo drives me crazy!!! I want to pull that fierce woman out of her that is just lying in wait for her to realize its existence, and I'm totally envious of her ability to keep in going even when she doesn't fully realize how awesome she is!

Wow! That's all I have to say.. Nope, that's a lie. For an author coming into her own, BN Toler has once again said, "I'm here to stay." I accepted Aldo in Healer, but melded with her in Hybrid. Yes, at times I wanted to smack her, but hey, I wanted to punch a few of the guys too. I laughed, cried, yearned with Aldo, even felt rejected with her. I don't normally write a review, but this series has definitely dug in deep. I will be one of those addicted readers checking all possible sites, lookin ...more

5 Stars!!!
What makes it 5 stars? I couldn’t put it down!!! It has soooo many twist and turns that made me want to keep reading to see where Toler was going to go with the characters. I am not going to give much away and we will be posting a full on review later today, but If you haven’t started this series you are missing out.

Side note – I normally don’t read paranormal it’s not my cup of tea but I was asked to read this book for a Book Club and I am glad I didn’t pass on this read

This second book in the Healer series is nothing short of amazing. You will laugh, you will be angry, and you will fall in love. This is a book you can not put down without missing the characters. In this book of the series Aldo finds out a secret that will always change her life. As soon as i finished reading Hybrid i wished i had read slower. I am already awaiting Savage!! Well done again B N Toler.

This is such an incredible series! I started reading Hybrid yesterday afternoon and finished it at 2:00am! I could not put the book down! I don't like to give too many descriptions of the books cause I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I just LOVE Daniel! At the end I was like what the $&$&!! , I knew I didn't like that guy for a reason! :) Cannot wait for the third book!

I am going to offer some full disclosure right now. This book frustrated me, plain and simple. Oh, I know what you're thinking, "But you gave it 5 stars so it couldn't possibly be THAT bad." To which I would rejoin, "You're absolutely right." The book was exceptional and the story line was brilliant. What frustrated me? Our dear confused and maddeningly frustrating heroine, Aldo. Aldo will make you want to punch her in the throat. Hard. And...a lot. She definitely is dealing with a lot of change ...more
Miranda (MrsLeif's Two Fangs About It)

This book picks up right where the first book, "Healer", left off. There was plenty of action, mystery, and romance to keep me hooked to this book. I loved the paranormal aspect of this book with healers, blood healers, hybrids, and more! It is a unique world, and Toler does a wonderful job building that world. I also really love Toler's writing style. She knows how to make her characters believable and lovable. Toler also incorporates a lot of humor, even in the darker moments of the book.

OH THE FEELS! Hybrid was an absolute emotional roller coaster that left me with one heck of a book hangover! Between being so irritated with Aldo I wanted to reach into the book and slap some sense into her, being worried for her, and crushing over the men (especially Daniel) I couldn't put this book down! The main character is not perfect by any means constantly getting herself into trouble by being impulsive and not listening to the people around her that are trying to help.

In this second book of BN Toler's Healer series, Hybrid, I found myself getting a bit irritated with Aldo. She acts even more impulsively -and frankly a bit more immature-than in the first book...without regard for how her actions will affect others-let alone herself. I found myself feeling sorry for Rhett with the way Aldo treated him, even if he has his own secrets that he is keeping.

We get a nice healthy dose of Daniel here, and apart from the fact that he smokes all the time, he's an excell
