The world is not what Riley Kordek imagined. On the run from those who’ve targeted her, all Riley wants is a chance to figure out her new ability to bend metal’s energy. When a hot guy who knows more than he should helps her escape her attackers, she thinks she might’ve found someone who can lead her to the answers she needs.
Three years ago, Sam Remington walked away from his employer and the woman he loved, and now, all he’s looking to do is fill the gaping hole left behind. Except, when Sam takes Riley to the Society for Goddess Education and Defense, the stakes rise beyond what either of them could have imagined.
After being alone for so long, falling for Sam would be far too easy for Riley—and far too painful, once his old flame calls needing his help. Worse, Riley uncovers a plot with disastrous ramifications not only for herself, but for Sam and the people he loves—and potentially every goddess in the country.
Heavy Metal is book 2 in the Goddesses Rising trilogy by Natalie J. Damschroder. This book starts out three years after Sam left the employ of Quinn, leaving her to begin her life as a couple with her longtime protector, Nick. And trying to give himself the time to heal. Giving her up was the ha... ...more
One of the things that I like best about my kindle is that I CAN'T flip the book to re-read the synopsis when I am reading a book. I find myself pleasantly surprised, more often than not, as I'm reading by how much I am enjoying the book. My kindle is also breaking me from my cover habit. I DO ju... ...more
Favorite Line(s) “Now she was all flustered and flushed. And maybe some more F words.”
“I’m saying take care of him. But be careful.”
“It felt good to share a burden, instead of taking on someone else’s. To have a person care about him so much she’d make sacrifices for him”
“I want you.” He shrugged... ...more

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this series since I hadn’t read the first book, but this installment was exciting and fast-paced enough to keep me reading. There was a backstory to Sam that I’m now wondering about, and I may end up reading the first book just to satisfy my curi... ...more

I hadn't realised there was a previous book to this one, but it didn't make any difference as the novel was easy to follow. I was a little wary at first, not sure what to expect, and thinking it would be based... ...more

Heavy Metal was just what I wanted from this series. 1. Sam, 2. Action, 3. Sam, lol. Yes, I absolutely loved Sam in Under The Moon. He was like the built, smart, sexy and dedicated third wheel and I wanted nothing more than to see him find happiness.
Heavy Metal takes off with an unknown goddess... ...more

My first read from this author and truthfully didn't quite know what to expect. This is the second book in her Goddesses Rising series and follows on from Under The Moon. Is it fantasy ? Romance? Urban? Well yes somehow it's all of those and yet more. I don't know how I missed this author but in... ...more
I received an ARC of this book for my honest review
I received this book and realized after reading it that it is the second book in the Godesses Rising Series. I have to say I did not even realize I was not reading a stand alone book. This book while the second in the series actually told you eno... ...more
Great writing, great story! What more can you ask for? Heavy Metal grabs you right from the start – and in a way I had not anticipated – and keeps you turning the pages right through to a very satisfying end.

( from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review) I seem to have a bad habit of choosing books for their covers, hee hee.

This is book two in the series, Goddess Rising. I did not read the first book. I struggled a little in understanding some of the characters and I could tell there were details I would have known if I had read the first book. But it d... ...more
3.5 stars. Snagged from NetGalley.
This is a direct sequel to Under the Moon. If you didn't like that one, you're not going to like this one and I wouldn't advise reading Heavy Metal without reading Under the Moon first.
It's a little ponderous. There's another conspiracy a-brewing and the hero,... ...more
First, I would like to thank the author Natalie J. Damschroder for giving me this book for an honest review. This book is very well written, the story was good and full of action. I liked the characters, they were well developed and believable. Sam and Riley were great together, but they were gre... ...more
I have conflicting feelings about this book. First off, I loved the idea behind this series. The characters were amazing, and the story line was so good that I read it in on sitting. However there were several spots that seemed to resolve so quickly that I found myself backtracking to previous pa... ...more
"5 out of 5 stars, this novel takes up where "Under the Moon" left off and throws you into a world of intrigue, suspicion, romance, passion, and a whole lot of suspense! I loved Riley as a character."
