Janna ♥ I'm A Sweet And Sassy Book Whore ♥
Saving Penny was a fast paced paranormal romance that overall I ended up enjoying. This is a novella so it isn’t super long but don’t let that fool you, it is not lacking at all. I liked the setup of how Drake and Penny’s story although I wish we would have gotten a little more information on the cards given out and who determined who received one but that may come out in future stories. Saving Penny had a good balance of drama, sexiness and chemistry between Drake and Penny. If you are a parano ...more

4.5 stars, rounded to 5 because it kept me entertained and I liked all the characters.

I normally avoid billionaire books like the plague. I took a chance on this one because I needed something happy and sweet after reading two horror books back to back this week. It turned out to be a cute story.

Penny has just won the biggest lotto payout in history. Nobody knows except her best friend. A popular sales rep, she turns in her two week notice at her job simply saying that a better opportunity has

The same dream has disrupted Drake's nights for years and he's helpless to figure out its meaning. It isn't until the penny he dreams of changes into a woman, the same woman who comes to him for help, that he realizes why he's been having the same dream night after night: this woman is his mate. But Penny isn't a wilting flower. She isn't a submissive woman. She is incredibly strong when it counts, when it matters, the perfect compliment for a man like Drake who exerts absolute control in his li ...more

Such a great start to a new Series! The Imperial Knights Series looks like a great new series to dive into. Ariel Marie did a good job at creating the world around Drake Ransley and Penny Berkley. I would love to get more details on The Ransley past in the future books of brothers.

There are a few times I felt we were pushed along in the story and I wanted more meat and potatoes of what was going on around Penny and Drake throughout the story. The story is well written and held my attention from

It's serious enough that her best friends brother sends her to Imperial Knights with a business card. Drake is part owner of the super successful security business, Imperial Knights. He's also a wolf shifter. He's so sweet yet a possessive alpha at the same time. He will do anything for his Penny. Penny surprises you. She's not whiney nor scared when his true nature ...more

This was a pretty short read, could be read in an hour or less. I did enjoy the writing but the story fell a little flat for me in some places, I wish some scenes were more detailed to slow it down a little and stop it being so fast paced (I do know novellas are like this though) drake was a great character and I would of loved to hear more about him and his past, I enjoyed penny’s character as well. What really drew me to this book was the blurb and the fact that this is a werewolf book. I did ...more

Saving Penny was a great Paranormal Romance Read! It was quick and easy with lots of heat and suspense. If you like wolf shifters and insta-lust/love you’ll enjoy this novel. Drake and Penny had lots of chemistry, and the story had a good balance between their relationship and the stalker mystery. The only thing I wanted more of was world building. I wanted to know if Penny would be as long-lived as Drake and how? Could she turn into a wolf or did you exclusively have to be born one? Do all shif ...more

Wow! I really was excited to get my hands on this story. I loved the blurb, and I'm a huge fan of PNR. This story was really good. I loved the characters and the storyline. I just wish it went into more detail (needs more backstory into the characters and the PN world) plus there were two huge gaps in the storyline that were distracting to me as a reader. I should have given this a 3 star but the writing is good, and I did enjoy the story and would like to know what happens next to the

An amazing start for the ‘Imperial Knights’ series; I was captivated from page one! This is a compelling interesting read, well written with a well-developed consistent plot.

Will Drake find Penny's stalker before it is too late? Will she find her happy ever after?

I don't usually leave reviews, but I had to leave one for this book. I have read many paranormal books by many different authors and this is one of the best I have ever read. It is well written. It had me hooked from the first page. I love the combination of suspense, love, mates, and steamy sex. I look forward to a continuation. I love Ariel a fitting style. I will definitely be reading more books by Ariel

Based on dreams and steam and a wicked twist, this fun story kept me glued to my reader.

I really enjoyed Saving Penny! The idea of a guy dreaming about pennies for decades is an intense and yet sweet concept! When Drake actually meets Penny, well, all bets are off and he has his sights totally set on keeping Penny safe while making her his mate. They have fab chemistry and as the story unfolds, the twist Ms. Marie put in here blew me away! Well done!

4.5 rating

I like how the story flowed. The steam and romance between the H and h is developed well also - steady pacing at that. The twist of the story surprised me.
The blurb is enough to get the readers interested - I did, so I won't divulge anymore details so as to spoil the whole story.
Paranormal shifter fans, grab this one. You won't regret it.

I really enjoyed this steamy and sweet PNR that offers a engaging and suspenseful storyline. I loved how Drake had spent years dreaming of a brown coin, that eventually is revealed to be Penny, and she is his mate. Drake was so amazing! The perfect combo of sweetness and protective alpha. Penny, to was a terrific character. Strong, sassy and so likable. Add in some drama and mystery and you have a extremely pleasurable read. This is my totally honest, voluntary review.

What a way to start life after winning the lotto!

This is a great fast-paced read that has great characters.
This book kept me guessing on who the stalker could be!

The epilogue made me excited to read Doru's story as well as close this story out by answering almost all questions as to what happens next.

Drake has been dreaming about pennies for decades, he just didn't realize he was dreaming about a woman named Penny until she came to him for help. She's being stalked and Drake's security company is where she turns for help. The chemistry between these two is instant and their connection explosive. This is the first in a new series and I am looking forward to reading them all. This story was engaging, exciting and endearing. I happily recommend it. ...more
