Blurb: One night of passion led to a life neither of them expected…

Cass A. Nova has a way with words. Unfortunately, his pickup lines usually get his face slapped. But then he meets a gorgeous fae that finds him not only intriguing but also charming. One night spent in Wylde Fleur’s arms and Cass can’t imagine being anywhere else. There’s only one problem…his fae has disappeared.

Wylde Fleur has a lot of experience bucking the system. He has been banished from Glitter Glow Park because he refuses to follow in his father’s footsteps. He was even shunned by the fae because he became a lawyer. Now, he’s chosen to take up with a vampire.
When Wylde discovers documents in the Ministry archives that hint at a secret long hidden from society, will he have to pay the ultimate price, or will his smooth talking vampire be able to save him in time?

Review: This is book three in this series and they need to be read in order. It will make the characters known to you and will give you an insight into their world. It is an amazing series. I love the way Stormy and Lynn’s put their heads together and write an awesome book. This series has so much humor in it that I couldn’t stop laughing.

Cass is a vampire who has so many bad lines that you can’t help but feel sorry for him. However many times he was told to bug off or slapped, he did have one night where a little man loved those lines, in fact begged for them. The only problem was he hadn’t gotten his name so he could not find him. Now that had to suck.

Wylde is fae who not only had he been banished from his home for wanting to be a lawyer instead of going into the family business, but his father had torn his wings off of him as punishment. He had been living and hanging with his best friend. Till one night, he met Cass and had to have him. He had loved everything the man had done to him and more but had not expected the bite. Also, when he broke into a room at the Ministry archives he finds out why fae and vampires don’t mix. If their blood called to each other and they mated, Wylde can get pregnant.

Now I sit here laughing because it is such a blast when you find out a man can get pregnant and then he will know what it is like to have a child. Which is exactly what happened to Wylde. The problem is that his father Levi finds out. Cass will do everything in his power to get the man he loves back.

This book will give you everything you need when you read it. It has the right amount of humor, seriousness, danger, and excitement in it. I loved this book as much as the series. It just gets better with each story. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

Blurb: When Pan Thyr is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, he’s determined to take down the man responsible for his torture. But being on the run makes it hard to prove his innocence. He is not only fighting to clear his name, but prove to Igorian Hunchback that they are meant to be together.

Igorian refuses to give in to his desires where Pan is concerned. Although the man is a walking wet dream, Igorian has been taught that vampires don’t mate outside their race. It is a lesson drilled into him from rebirth.

When wanted posters go up and the two must run for their lives, Igorian learns that fighting against the attraction he feels for Pan is futile. Can the two clear their names and the misconceptions taught to Igorian, or will the Ministry of Paranormal Affairs doom them both to a death sentence before Igorian finds out what it means to purr for a panther shifter?

Review: This is book two in this series and they need to be read in order. Not only will it give you an insight into each character but also a back ground of their amazing world. I love the way each character intermingle with each other. This particular story was a blast to read not to mention one of the funnier ones. Igorian is Vlad’s personal assistant and a vampire. He is the one that was scared of Vlad’s mate Bela who happens to be human.

Iggy had been seeing and sleeping with a certain panther named Pan. He had been raised that you do not for any reason mix races so he was not only surprised by his body’s reaction but his feelings that seem to be growing for Pan. Just looking at him gets him turned on faster than anyone had ever been able to. He will also do anything to help him. Even if it meant doing something, he had never done before ever. He is the true colorful, vibrant, very vocal gay man. Although Bela tells him all the time, he really needs to get better colors.

Pan had stolen a file for Vlad but had kept a copy of it for his own reasons. What he had not expected Ministry of Paranormal Affairs to intervene. They had arrested him in front of his mate. Although his mate was his alibi, he had not said a word to help him. Pan knew Iggy was scared but he didn’t really know what. He also knew that he was in deep trouble.

When Iggy tried to find out where he was taken to make things right, he found out that Pan’s arrest was not a real arrest. Pan was in danger and now Iggy had to go in and save his butt. Breaking into the Ministry of Paranormal Affairs was probably not his best idea but he had to save the man he had fallen in love with. Now all he had to do is figure out how to do it, and not let Vlad know what he was up to. Although his idea of breaking someone out of a cell, dressing up as a woman, and begging the higher-ups for help was not what he had expected.

You will love this book if you like vampires, werewolves, were panthers, the paranormal worlds, crazy mates, great attitudes and danger. This is an amazing book and a wonderful series. I can guarantee that you will get an amazing reaction to this book. I can’t wait to get my hand on the next book.

Reviewer: Tootsie
Review: Teegan Loy has written a very enjoyable, sometimes emotional story, about two young men, both in sports, both gay, and both trying to find their balance. Both Justin and CJ are damaged souls, both conflicted with demons from their past but who have a very good support system thru family and friends if they will allow themselves to reach out, accept the resources, and help around them.

Justin has recently returned home from California where he was away training for the US Nationals. After his mother passed away, he misunderstood some things and felt everyone was against him. His dad was heartbroken from losing his wife, and probably a little standoffish, his siblings were getting more and more distant, the boy he loved would not come out to be with him, so he fled. He decides to come home with the hope and intentions of putting all of these bad demons that haunt him, in his past. It’s not an easy thing to do when he doesn’t want to communicate with anyone, nor tell them how he feels. He has a chip on his shoulder most of the time, and he avoids situations that he feels will put him to much in the spotlight. He continues to have nightmares from things he wants to forget. Will he ever be able to come forward and face the demons he carries around in his head and heart? Will he finally open up, allow someone else in his heart, and share his burdens and torment with him? Justin hates all hockey players, or so he thinks. Will he give CJ a chance to show him he’s his own person? He doesn’t act like the rest of the guys on the team and he wants the chance to prove that to Justin.

CJ is a new transfer that has joined the hockey team. The same team Justin’s dad is the coach for. He is also gay, but he hides it from the team. He, also, is hiding a lot of fear and hurt from a situation that happened in his hometown. He has a hard time letting anyone in his heart or opening up about his past troubles. When you have been abused and ridiculed by people you thought you could trust, that makes him very weary to put himself in that situation again. He and Justin start to get close, they have sex and it’s good but they have a lot to learn. CJ is not as experienced as Justin, but they are working on it and they have good chemistry. He is not willing, or…. more like he is afraid to confide in Justin, so he keeps his past locked up. Justin knows something bad happened, it must have, he just doesn’t know what. Will he be able to convince CJ to share his feelings with him? What happens when Danny, the boy who Justin was in love with, realizes he made a mistake?

Teegan Loy held my interest throughout this entire story. I think that she done an amazing job with the plot as it continued to move forward. I don’t know if the facts were correct in relation to the skating world, whether it was figure skating or ice hockey. What I do know, is she made me believe they were. I was fascinated with the ins and outs that she described within the setting. I would have liked for the boys to come to a resolution a little sooner, in regards to their relationship, but that is just me wanting the romance kicked up a few notches. She still held my attention waiting and wondering what would happen next. The author has included some wonderful side characters that were a large part of this story. Eli, Justin’s best friend was awesome, supportive and extremely funny. I would love to see him have his own story in the future. I would recommend this to anyone who loves sports driven plots and who enjoy laugh out loud banter between characters. There is quite a bit of angst with both Justin and CJ, as they try to figure out how to slay their demons once and for all. It’s a good story, read it for yourself, I think you will agree.

Blurb: Vy Aleknos is the leader of a hawk shifter flock. Openly gay since he was a teen, Vy is proud and self-assured on the outside, while secretly worrying he’ll be forced to spend his life alone because two males can’t be mates. When bear shifter Robert Cimino appears in Vy’s small town, Vy realizes his concerns were unfounded — he has a male mate, and a sexy, dominant one to boot.

Robert is a bear shifter who refuses to shift. Immediately attracted to Vy, he deviates from his normal pattern and seeks more than a one-off with the powerful, bristly hawk. But Robert’s affections are rooted in his human form, and when Vy discovers Robert doesn’t recognize him as his mate, he pulls away. If Robert wants to stay with Vy, he must convince a man deeply ruled by his animal instincts to give their relationship as humans a chance.

Review: Vy is kuar of his hawk shifter flock and while he wants a mate, he has always feared he would not have one because he is gay. When Vy meets Robert, he is overjoyed at discovering his mate but when he realizes Robert doesn’t recognize him as his mate Vy begins to fall into a downward spiral of doubt. Robert has lived for most of his life as human. But he is strongly drawn to Vy and wants to give their relationship a go. But when Vy turns him away, Robert tries to prove to Vy that their human side is just as important as their animal sides.

This is an incredible story of two shifters coming together from different angles, one from shifter mating and the other from human attraction, and working out their differences to become a couple where love shines through. Vy is ruled by his animal side, everything he does is based on what is good for his ket and flock, but what happens when his mate isn’t ruled by his animal instincts? Robert has avoided his animal side ever since he was a young boy, watching a tragedy unfold before him has him caging his animal so he would never react like he saw others do, but what happens when his love interest ignores him human feelings? Vy and Robert have a rough road ahead of them as they try to find a balance not just for themselves but for Vy’s ket as well.

This was a wonderful story to read, it was such a joy to see these two men, who value different things about a person, to come together and make their relationship work. It isn’t easy though because Vy places such value in his animal instincts, but Robert goes with his human instincts… so we have a great bit of frustration as we silently scream at Vy because he ignores his human side. Robert is a complete sweetheart and we root for him as he tries to crack through Vy’s stubborn shell, and, as he handles the ket with panache. We do learn why Robert is so wary of his own bear and it breaks your heart when he is forced to shift but Vy handles it wonderfully, proving that he is the shifter worthy of Robert.

Oh if there was ever a marriage that should be celebrated then it is of Mary Calmes and Cardeno C’s writing collaborations because these two authors can melt a heart at a thousand yards and leaves you blissed out on warm fuzzies for hours after the conclusion of their stories *sigh* just magic. Control is another beautifully blended story, the authors writing slips seamlessly together and complements each other perfectly. The story is written from both characters points of view and we clearly know when the perspective changes. The storyline is wonderful showing that getting to know your mate is just as important as the mating instinct. There is some danger, tension, and violence but none of it is overdone and fits perfectly in the story, it isn’t just there for show.

I recommend this to those that love shifters, difficult matings, fantastic characters, a great storyline, hot sex, a story that leaves you with the warm fuzzies and a wonderful ending.
