I was given the chance to read (Mis)Fortune in exchange for an honest review. One word of "awesome" explains the book but that doesn't help any of my fellow readers...
Michelle is in noway perfect and she has trust issues when it comes to everyone except her brothers but then they are only 4 & 5 years old. Michelle is all her brothers have left so she is constantly fighting to keep them safe and away from the dangers that Blake shows them. She has been held captive in her own house by Blake an associate of her step-dad, Richard. After Richard has been killed, Michelle managed to get away with her brothers. However they got followed/found which is when she meets Emmitt who saves her from Blake's hired guys. Emmitt ends up taking Michelle and the boys to his home that he shares with his borhter, Jim and a pack elder, Nana Wini.
Over the course of time with Emmitt and his family, Michelle realizes what they have missed out on with being locked away and starts to feel responsible for it. She also ends up learning about what Emmitt and his family are and ends up going to their home in Canada after Blake's men ends up finding them. She learns more about them and ends up claiming Emmitt.
Like Gabby from Hope(less), Michelle has special insights and she can also see some of the other girls that are gifted. I can't wait for (Un)Wise to come out and hope that it involes several of the charaters from the first two books. Thank you Melissa for the opportunity to read your book.

So when I finished Hope(Less), I emailed Melissa to tell her what I thought about it and to confirm the blog posting. I immediately told her that I couldn't wait to read Book 2 so she sent it to me. Did I mention she sent it earlier yesterday (Thursday) and of course I couldn't resist and had to read it right then?

The Judgement of the Six series is amazingly good. They are just the right dose of paranormal and romance and perfect for anyone of any age. There is so much action and each story contains a couple that take their time to get to know one another but are all incredibly loyal.

With (Mis)fortune, Melissa introduces us to Michelle, a 19 year old girl who lost her mother and is being controlled by a business associate of her stepfather. When something tragic happens, she knows that she must make her escape from Blake and get her and her two young half brothers safely away.

After she escapes, she encounters a man at the diner who with his mere look makes her stomach do flip flops. However, she has serious trust issues and feels like she has to be wary to maintain her brothers' safety. When the bad guys find her at the diner, the stranger, Emmitt, steps in and helps her escape and offers to provide her help until she can get far enough away to feel safe.

Emmitt takes Michelle to his home and offers her living quarters and protection from what she is running from. As Michelle sticks around, she becomes hesitant about the feelings that stir when looking at Emmitt. Emmitt on the otherhand, along with Jim his brother and Nana, provide so much support that she knows that staying is the best possible option for her and her brothers.

However, she is keeping a large secret from the all. As this secret becomes harder and harder to keep to herself, she agrees to tell Emmitt as he begins to unveil his secret to her, he is a werewolf.

Michelle doesn't know if she can handle this truth. (Mis)fortune deals with Michelle's feelings of control and understanding who she can and can't believe in. As her past starts to catch up with her, she has to determine if she can truly trust Emmitt and whether committing to him will be the answer to a number of her questions.

All I can tell you is read the books! If you are a fan of paranormal, these are some great books for you. Even better, these are great books for young teenagers and provides amazing stories with just a hint of lessons learned. If I was around Melissa, I would definitely have to kiss her for sending both of these amazing books to me. I feel like I have jumped hard out of my angst handover to a series of fun, romance and love all within a few jokes and family love.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

(Mis)Fortune is the second book in the Judgement series and lead us deeper into the world of werewolfs. The mysteries grow and the characters continue to be lovable. But let me tell you what I loved about this book instead of the general "everything." :)

Thankfully due to Michele's point of view we find out more in (Mis)Fortune then we did in Hope(less). The plot deepens in the aspect that we are now finding out more information that applies to the whole "judgement" thing. With a focus more on the overall plot I am aware that there is much more going on then humans finding their way into a werewolf community, which makes me happy since I hadn't fully understood where the plot line was going in the first book. I'm actually pretty excited for what I anticipate to be a big ass battle in the end of this series.

I loved the characters in this book but as always, will only talk about the main two. Michelle (aka Mimi) was the main character and at first I didn't think I would like her. She was the depressing and I'm not to fond of depressed characters. Don't get me wrong, Michele definitely had reason to be depressed, she was locked up for four years by a demented werewolf named Blake, was forced to reveal her visions, and her brothers were leverage used against her. Fast forward a bit and we see a young girl trying to do right by her two little brothers. Almost always she put their safety first and that was commendable. When she wasn't being afraid, she was unbelievably mature, kind, and responsible. She was the "damsel in distress" type but she felt real. I really ended up liking her.

Emmitt was the heart throb in this book. Unlike Clay, Emmitt actually spoke. He was practically the perfect man, saying the right things, taking his shirt off at the right moments, and being a badass werewolf in the right way. Everything about him from appearance to personality was just right. He was so swoon worthy it made me wish I could push Michelle out of the way and literally claim him as my own. Though if I did that how would Clay take it? So the love triangle begins. *evil smile*

There is a lot more action in (Mis)Fortune then I had anticipated but I loved it. Some of the fight scenes were crazy good. My favorite fight scene is probably when Nana Wini, in her advanced age, kicked some mega butt. She walked into the fight and had them running in just a matter of minutes.

Let me mention that ending without spoiling anything. Whoa. Just whoa. First we are lead to believe that Blake is a heartless man but now it kind of just confirms it. Can you say psycho that takes advantage of people without them even knowing it?

I loved this book and there were times when I felt like squealing with excitement of what was to come. But because I am a guy, I didn't let myself, but I wanted to lol. I'm so hooked on this series that the only complaint that I have for (Mis)Fortune is now that I am finished, I have to wait for the next book book to come out.
