Giveaway and Review of "Ain't No Bull" by Dancia Avet

Welcome!  I am pleased to host a giveaway of the absolutely fabulous novel  Ain't No Bull.  I loved this book and was soo pleased to be invited to join in on this book tour.  For those of you who haven't heard of the book please keep reading!!  The giveaway details will be right after the review!

Isola "Izzy" Malone is proud to be an Amazon. After years of roaming, she finally finds a home with the Blood Maiden Tribe. But contentment made her wild, which is how Izzy ends up exiled to Middle-of-Nowhere, Wyoming. The most fun she can look forward to is rescuing a dumb bull from a group of nymphs. Only he isn't a bull, but a minotaur. A really hot, sexy, big minotaur. Grant Strickland isn't ready to commit to a harem of placid cow-swans; not yet. But when he's accosted by a crazy Amazon who's determined to "save" him, he thinks the whole mating thing might be worth a try. Trouble follows Izzy, but it'll take both of them to stop it from becoming war. Grant will use his skills, and cheat, to show Izzy where she really belongs is with him as a mate.


Izzy is one badass Amazon who has just had her rug yanked out from under her.  She's been banished, in BFE Wyoming.  Who lives in Wyoming anyway?  She has been cut off from her tribe, her sisters, and all of her friends because she has what they refer to as an impulse control problem.  She was sent here to learn how to control herself.  Great.  She gets thrown in the middle of nowhere to learn to "control" her impulses. Not to hard when the nearest neighbor was like 50 miles away and the city looked like something that stepped out of an episode of Andy Griffin. No problem.  At least until she decides to save a bull that was literally being led to his slaughter.
Grant was sooo screwed.  Here he was thinking he was about to have an out of this world orgy with five...or was it six, totally hot nympths.  Then they asked him to change.  Chics were always impressed with his other forms, at least those who didn't run away screaming.  So he obliged and changed.  Then they grabbed his nose ring and he knew he was in deep deep trouble.  Seems like these babes weren't after a roll in the proverbial hay after all.  He needed help in the worst way.  But even as desperate as he was, nothing could prepare him for Izzy.
The chemistry between these two is off the charts.  Neither is prepared to settle down and lose themselves, both having major stubbornness issues.  You are taken through some surprisingly sticky situations and some incredibly smoking sex scenes.  This book hooked me from the moment I picked it up.  The mixing of a Greek myth thrown in with other shifters and an Amazon tribe is evidently the recipe for a great story.  Because this story certainly rocked!  It was completely entertaining and when you weren't sitting on the edge of your seat wondering what was going to happen, you are laughing your tail off at the sarcastic and dry humor.  This book was enchanting and the author has gained a lifelong fan!  I give this book 5 cups!!

Now for the goods!!  One commenter will win a PDF copy of Ain't No Bull and a pack of trading cards.  If I get more than 10 commenters, I'll split the booty and have two winners!  I highly recommend this book!  Must be a follower to enter.  1 Extra entry for tweeting about the giveaway.

Hi Nikki! I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! Izzy was one of my favorite characters to write since she could say (and do) all the things I can' know, because we're not supposed to be rude, LOL.

Thanks for stopping in Danica! I loved this book!! I want to enter in my own giveaway! LOL! I love books that dip into different mythologies, and this one had a few. I loved the term Veilarians. That connects all the supernatural creatures together. And they way the minotaurs find their mate? Unique and awesome!
