Third re-read: 29.08.2020
I seriously don't like Mischa. Hell I stopped the re-read the second she appeared because I can't stand her. I tried again weeks - or was it months - later and I managed to skim her parts. I hate how Maximus is taking a liking to her though. I really do. This is actually one of the few books that I'd prefer a reverse haram or something. I love Braxton, and I love him with Jessa, but I also love Maximus with Jessa. I seriously wouldn't mind a relationship where Jessa

DNF. I thought I was reading UF, you know that genre with supernatural/paranormal things and violence. Yeah, this wasn't it. It was like one of those coming of age stories/movies that's rated a low PG-13. Maybe a kiss, but mostly a lot of the character talking about herself and how awesome, but misunderstood she is, while still being awesome. All the girls hate her because of her awesomeness & how much all the boys like her, cuz she's perfect, duh. <~ See, this shit is not UF, and that's all thi ...more

Jessa Lebron is a wolf shifter with a bit of something extra. She lives in Connecticut, a center for the five supernatural races: vampire, shifter, fey, magic users and demi-fey in the US. It is also a place where the prison for the baddest of bad such creatures are kept for the safety of the rest of humanity.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this one. Told through first point of view, Jessa is part of an elite group of ruling supernaturals destined to eventually take over the small town council. Supernaturals are segregated from the human population by choice, with their own town ran with their own systems - all businesses, the prison, the school are supernaturally ran and inhabited. The variety of supernaturals is widely diverse, from every type of shapeshifter including the rare dragon, vampires, ...more

Jessa is a (wolf) shifter. She’s driven, smart, talented, powerful and caring. She’s the daughter of the wolf pack leader and will probably be the leader later. Jessa’s best friends are the Compass brothers. There are four of them: Braxton, Maximus, Tyson and Jason. They all have a different ability. Every brother is strong, powerful, protective and caring. They will probably rule their world one day.

Jessa and the Compass brothers spend a lot of time together and they have each other’s back. Je

I seriously think I just died and went to heaven. This has got to be one of the greatest books I've ever read. Seriously.

5+ Stars

I honestly did not know what I was getting myself into. I'm in love.
The main character has a special bond with four guys. They've been together since they were two. Their relationship is probably my favorite thing about the book. They love her so much. I can't really describe it. Jaymin wrote this book wonderfully. Let's just say, they'd die for her, and she'd die for
Dragon Marked is my first surprise read of 2015. I grabbed it on a whim while poking around Amazon and decided I'd "just read a chapter or two" to check it out. Only, 1-2 chapters turned into 9-10 and so on.

Dragon Marked introduces us to Jessa Lebron, a twenty-two year old wolf shifter who's attending 'supes' college. She lives with her father, wolf shifter alpha and high council leader of all shifting races. Their town, a gateway/guardian community that is protected by witch magic to repel

I was irritated by the end of the first chapter. I'm sure this would be a solid 2 star book if I bothered to finish it, but I'm not going to waste my time suffering through it. These are supposed to be college kids in their early 20's, but they acted like immature teenagers and thought they knew it all. It was really hard to believe these 5 kids were supposed to be leaders in a few short years. Books like this are the reason I hate YA.

Meh... this one didn't really work all that well for me. I think it had potential … I mean come on … HELLO- DRAGONS.. But, it fell short. All the action scenes had a build up but no delivery. The jokes made were bland and didn't make much sense. I also kept thinking the main characters- (5 in all) were like 13 or 14 because of their immaturity, but NOPE - they were like 22. My biggest problem was this is considered a YA - and I have no issue with mild language, even in a YA, but this o

Hit or miss

Books are a hit or miss kind of thing sometimes. This for me was a miss. I just didn’t connect well with the story and plot. I found too many flaws in the MC Jessa as well as the rest of the supporting characters. But as always this might just be a character flaw in me, you might read this book and fall in love with them.
I personally found Jessa to be extremely annoying. I felt like she was underwhelming, obsessed with food but described as perfect, the author reminds you of it every

This book was SO much better than I thought it would be. At first I felt it was moving a little slow but I was just getting to know my new friends. I was so engrossed I wanted to be pack with the sexy Compass brothers too lol. I expect the next book to be even better.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Jessa, love her or hate her, the girl has attitude and the backbone to stand toe to toe against anyone who attempts to hurt those she cares about. Her strong sense of right and wrong, justice and injustice is to be admired, her execution of some of the stands she takes border on “what was she thinking.” She is also the next in line as alpha behind her shifter father in a world where supernatural races live side by side, generally in peace with one another. Yep, one bad wolf-shifter, for sure and ...more
Second time read. First time review - I think?
Either way, I still ended up loving this book!

Dragon Marked is the first of the Supernatural Prison Series. I forgot how much I missed the compass boys - but hot damn, I did! Okay, so there's Jessa, who is a wolf shifter (aka the wolf princess) and her four best friends (the compass brothers) and uh.. she gets a whole lot of information dropped on her in one day.

1. Her mom is back.
2. She has a sister.
3. This sister isn't actually her younger sister..

I've really, really needed a good read for a while now. It's been a low summer reading break for me and I don't like it. I finally figured out I needed paranormal reads to keep my interest right now. So when a bookish friend suggested this series, I jumped to grab the first book. And before I had gotten half way through it, I was buying the rest of the series. Yep, this is just one of those series that captured me and held. Devoured it and was so glad book two was already waiting.

2.5...Nice start but it feels like it's YA instead of NA.... lot's of sticking tongues out at each other, shoulder punching, and middle finger salutes. They talk a lot about sex and how active they are but you don't actually see it (which to me is just plain boring). The writing is kind of choppy and feels abrupt. Has a lot of potential but it was too predictable. May continue on to see if Braxton and Jessa finally do the horizontal mambo. At this point that's all that interests me.

More than enjoyed this despite the cliffhanger ending. If I'm honest it wasn't an abrupt stop just a lead into a new chapter aka book two. The h is the bomb. I can't find one fault with her. The love interest(s?) seem like all good choices I say why choose lol

Friends bad reviews nearly put me off starting this one but, thankfully I ended up enjoying it.

There are clear similarities in the group dynamic between Jessa and the Compass brothers and Willa and the Abcurse's from Trickery, the difference here being that while they all love and protect her, there is one clear romantic lead above the others (though nothing happens between them in this book).

Plot-wise the setup is well in place for some action in the next book which I'm looking forwar

This is one of those books that I turn too when I need to completely take my mind of something and just become immersed in reading. It's pure fun and escapism and I couldn't be more thankful.

When I requested a copy from the author through the Goodreads group for reviewing it, I was both eager and reluctant to start reading the book. The reason was that I found the blurb interesting enough to queue up for a free copy and at the same time too wordy leaving an open field for the story without any bumps in it. The blurb was also very revealing of the plot. I think that it could have been a bit more concise and more mysterious.

For this book, I found that the cover was not too engaging. I

I like the idea of this book but after reading it and reflecting on it it feels like not much happens of consequence.

We have the main character a snarky werewolf girl who is daughter of the alpha in this secret village of supernaturals built to guard a secret supernatural prison.

The idea of a supernatural prison is interesting and how it would differ from a regular one how it would work etc there's lots to explore there but that aspect gets mostly glossed over for some tame romance and some pr

Excellent, loved it.

This was an excellent, excellent book. It got my attention quickly and kept it throughout, at no point did I loose interest. The characters are amazing, like able, multidimensional and real. I felt like I got to know them all and was along with them in the book. I can’t wait to read the next book, which I’m starting now. I highly recommend this book.

I alternated between the audio book and ebook on this one. On that note, I have to mention that the narrator did a pretty good job. I'd have little to complain about her interpretation.

Now, the book. It started well... Until the second third chapter. Again, it is like a teenager's fantasy, where you are a badass with alpha vibes (which wants to be translated as authority... mrrr-yeah) and you have four very hot and incredibly strong guys trailing after you like puppies and tending t

I requested a review copy of DRAGON MARKED off of NetGalley on a whim and I was pleasantly surprised that after I started reading DRAGON MARKED I didn't want to put it down.

I loved Jessa from the first chapter. She is fierce, protective, loyal and an all around bad-ass. She finds out very quickly into the book that her absentee mom is back and oh yeah, she has a sister. If that wasn't bad enough she finds out her sister is actually her twin and they are dragon marked.

I absolutely adored Jessa's
