Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is book 4 in the Guardian City series, and whilst can be read as a standalone, I recommend people to read in order to understand the entire story. All the matings involve ménage relationships, which I’m sure will please many people. This actually also leads to my first comment too, Grace Lynn has created a fantastic and intricate universe within this single series. Overall, I have enjoyed this series, this book perhaps more so than the others.

A main part of my enjoyment was Jack, one of the MC’s, is the most adorable bunny shifter. His actions, just as the author intended, are just like an actual rabbit. Because of his bunny genes, he’s a little scared of his stronger mates. He is also the smart and dedicated doctor of Guardian City, so we see Demend and his mates from the first two books pop up for his help or are approached for help.

Blake was actually a minor character in the previous book. And after the situation he forced to live in, it’s nice to see that’s he’s been given some freedom to do as please and find his happily ever after. Blake stumbles upon his second mate Cast, while he’s on his way back to Guardian City with supplies. Cast is an interesting one. He at first comes across as not so much weak, but rather a damsel-in-distress, but by the end of it he’s got a tough attitude and he’s willing to do anything for his mates.

There’s a minor character, a little demon named Acotas, who is also insanely adorable. He reminds me a bit of the frightened rabbit caught in headlights, to take an analogy from Jack. I don’t know if this series will ever continue, but regardless, I love this character. The story line that he is involved with, the “peril” that is face by the three mates in the book, is quite well played out, although I don’t think the actual danger is fully conveyed to reader. Like the rest of this series, the directly to the point manner in which it is written, makes it a perfect type of book to read in an hour or a few (depending how fast you read!).

Read the series, it’s a good way to pass a relaxing day, or whatever. It’s easy to read, well written and the description of setting is great!

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This book has everything in it you could want romance, passion, action, danger, and sexy shifters. I loved the chemistry between Zac, Matt, and Aiden. These three worked very well together when things turned dangerous. They each brought their own strengths and skills into to play when it was needed.

Very well written story that keeps your attention all the way through to the end. I loved the car chase and the fights/take down scenes very detailed it was as if I was there witnessing what was taking place. I was very happy the Alpha, who seemed as though he wasn’t all there to begin with got his in the end along with the council member who helped him.

Fantastic read with passionate sex between Zac, Matt, and Aiden that added a hot break in between the danger. I loved this book and can’t wait to read the next one in the series. Highly recommended read.

Blurb: The colonists all report seeing the same thing—Santa Claus.

With their maiden voyage behind them, the crew of the Laughing Owl is sent on a mission to ferry scientists to an odd planet where, according to reports, Santa Claus has been sighted, flying high in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. Nobody’s sure what Santa’s up to—he hasn’t delivered a single present.

Captain Nick Steele agrees with the scientists who propose that Santa is a mass hallucination and probably the result of some unknown compound in the water, air, or food. But Astrogator Cai isn’t so sure, because if Santa is a hallucination, everyone on the planet is having the same hallucination, identical to the smallest detail.

As Christmas approaches, will the crew of the Laughing Owl solve the mystery of the hallucinogenic Santa or will the man prove to be real by delivering presents in the dead of night?

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is first book of a series and should be read in order.

One wild night on New Year’s Eve 1999 was all they had. Kees left Amsterdam after giving his virginity to Arjan. Kees goes on with his life first in London and then in New York City. Until Kees comes back to Amsterdam after fifteen years for a job at a business based there. Little does he know that the owner of the company is none other than Arjan.

Kees is an expert in corporate espionage and Arjan is having a problem with someone selling company secrets. From the first moment the two meet the attraction and draw to each other is still there. The two start-up a relationship as Kees investigates and Arjan explains everything to Kees about why he left him like he did and who is really is. However, there is an old enemy of the lion shifters that is now hunting and killing members of the pride. So things are far from easy for the two MCs.

The sex between the two is nice and hot. There are only minor elements of BDSM, mostly bondage and a little spanking. I loved the rich descriptions of Amsterdam. I liked the story and the intrigue into finding out who is behind the deaths and security issue. The romance between Arjan and Kees is immediately intimate but there is not instant love. They got to know each other first, and Kees still has doubts almost up to the very end. So nothing was perfect from the start and I liked that.

This is the first book I have read by the author, but it will not be the last I don’t think. I look forward to seeing what happens in this series.

Blurb: A night-blind vampire. A werewolf with lousy self-confidence. And a whole hell of a lot of danger…

Ellis O’Neill is an art dealer with too many problems: his eyesight has deteriorated to the point of night-blindness; he’s estranged from his family, to whom he owes a considerable sum of money; and his guide dog went right off him the night Ellis died. Without his dog, Ellis is trapped in a life bouncing between home and work, dependent on his personal assistant.

Werewolf Randall Carter has problems of his own. He loves his pack, he really does, but as their Omega, he’s always the one to bear the brunt of their rage. It’s a role he can’t avoid, and Randall isn’t sure he can take it for much longer, so he buries himself in his day job. Randall’s the best dog trainer in the city, and when he’s offered a client who needs him to work evenings he’d be a fool to turn it down.

Soon Randall is falling for someone he should despise. Everything about the undead is anathema to his kind, but Ellis is exactly the kind of guy Randall would want to ask out on a date – if he were still breathing. Worse, they may not have too long to figure their feelings out. Someone or something is gunning for Ellis and anyone else who gets in the way; they won’t rest until the vampire is destroyed.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Ellis seems like an intelligent, understanding sweet man. He’s a blind vampire who owns a gallery and is need of help with his guide dog so his assistant Jay makes an appointment with Randall.
Randall is a sweet and nice, omega wolf shifter who trains dogs. Once he meets his sexy client, he is instantly attracted to him. He starts noticing different things about Ellis as he tries to figure out what he is.

I did not like most of the pack Randall is part of. They seemed liked a bunch of bullies wanting to hurt and humiliate Randall. It disgusted me. I couldn’t believe the Alpha told Randall to find out what Ellis was and if he was a vampire to kill him because he couldn’t have fleas in his territory. Really, fleas, it seemed to me the Alpha, a wolf shifter, would definitely have fleas and not a vampire.

It was a good read with drama, danger, and mystery.

Reviewer: Lisa
 
Review: This is part of the Dangerous Wolves series and they should be read in order. For me it helps to keep the characters in my mind straightened out and their amazing lives. I love the fact that each story focuses on a new romantic couple but you catch sight of those in the other stories. I also love the fact that even though there is a serious tone to it there is just a hint of humor that makes it better for me. To learn why they fight for what they seem to think is right and the fact that they will do everything to protect those that they love.

In a previous story, you learn about Maggie and Alexander. They were mates and so much in love, but Maggie was killed in a fight with rogues. Alex left the pack in grief and had thought that he was only missing for a few months. He had let his wolf take over, to try to overcome the grief that he continued to face. That is until he saves a small wolf from a group of rogues. A wolf that he had taken hard and mated with so much guilt. Now he has to figure out how to fix the things that were broken and get back part of the three years he was missing.

Jeremy was an omega wolf, bitten and changed three years ago in the fight that had killed Maggie. He had wanted Alexander from the moment he had seen him, but Alex was mated to Maggie and he knew they were in love. When a large wolf saved him from the rogues, he was scared. Then he realized it was Alexander and he was mated. He wanted the mating but was scared that he was the one that had forced Alexander. Things get a bit complicated for them both but you can see the heat coming from them both. You can feel the love that is there with just a touch.

I loved the way these two men come together with such force and desire. They have the normal desires, regrets, and fears that the others have. Although I am thinking about the fact that Alexander was mated to a woman and now all of a sudden he is mated to a male is a bit bizarre. However if you read the previous books then you see the temptation that each other has for the other one. I loved this book and cannot wait to read the next book. It gave me everything I could want in a story but there was just a bit of magic missing to make it perfect. It captured my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

If you love the temptation that the mates give each other with a glance, excitement and a bit of danger than this book will be one to start reading. I would recommend this book to everyone who loves shifters, gorgeous men, hot sex and a bit of twist.

Ryunoski “Ru” Nakimura knows all about the trappings of fame. Expelled from a boy band for coming out as gay, he still wants to continue his career in music.

Adam Corbin attends a Minnesota high school and wants to coast through as a typical student. He’s friends with an openly gay student, Bas Axelrod, but while Adam plays football, he also stays away from much socializing. Blending in and not outing himself has been easy because he’s never really been seriously interested in any of the guys he’s encountered.

When Adam meets Ru in a library, Adam begins to think he’s found that special young man who might make it worthwhile to just be himself. And for Ru, Adam looks like someone he might trade his fame for, if they could be together. Ru and Adam will both come to realize that courage and love must go hand in hand if they are to have a future.

Blurb: Thanks to the efforts of Raymond Payet and l’ANS, vampires now have the same legal rights as mortals, and research at l’Institut Marcel Chavinier is focusing on the mysterious partnership bonds between wizards and vampires. But the battle for public opinion rages on. When Detective Adèle Rougier encounters Pascale Auboussu, a shy young woman turned into a vampire against her will, Raymond and Denis Langlois, chef de la Cour nearest the crime, fear a public relations nightmare.

The vampire responsible for Pascale’s turning must be brought to justice, but Denis is distracted by an unlikely potential partner—Canadian researcher Martin Delacroix, who is spending a year’s sabbatical at l’Institut—and Denis’s lingering feelings for his deceased lover prompt him to reject the bond. There’s no denying the attraction between them, though, and the allure of companionship is nearly as strong as Denis’s grief.

Growing familiarity and yearning for a true mate may induce Adèle and Denis to soften their stances against new partnerships, but Adèle will have to accept a deeper intimacy with Pascale when she has never considered a relationship with a woman, and it will take a near-deadly attack to make Denis admit his most hidden desires. Now he has to hope Martin will be willing to stay.

This second edition received minor revision and proofing for re-release in honor of the publication of Partnership Reborn, the final book in the series.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Adele finds a newly turned vampire about to commit suicide and talks her into going to L’instut where she can receive help and guidance. While I completely understood Adele’s reluctance to enter into another partnership after the disastrous one with Jude, I felt it was a little too drawn out. Most of the book is about Adele and Denis’ reluctance to enter into a partnership with Pascale and Martin.

Denis meets Martin shortly after another non-consent turning. Martin is curious and attracted to Denis but Denis denies him due to feeling guilty because of his dead lover. Only a little bit is mentioned about the vampire turning people against their will. It is never truly explained how Adele comes to different conclusions as there is no evidence until the vampire finally attacks Martin almost killing him.

Very long drawn out story with in-depth details on the reasons why Denis and Adele feel the way they do about a partner. I was glad the vampire turning people against their will was finally caught and brought charges against.

Hot and sexy m/m sex all throughout. As well as f/f scenes, as well though I didn’t read the intimate scenes myself, as I’m not interested in m/f or f/f.

All in all the book was a good addition to the series.
