Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in Demon Warrior collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Lynn can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Lynn.

There is something about the way that Lynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

Kendrick has known about the paranormal world now for some time. He has been friends with them and is attracted to Einarr for some time. He has even been spending time with him as friends, even though he wants it as more. When danger comes for Omar they need the demon’s to get him back. More to the fact that they need Einarr’s help.

Einarr is a demon warrior, but at one time worked for the man who took Kendrick’s nephew. He didn’t know love or understand it, but he wanted Kendrick. Kendrick was his mate, although he didn’t know it like the shifters and vampires do. He just wanted to protect his mate from the violent side of his life. However when his past shows up, he will protect his mate with everything in him.

Things heat up for these two and life as they know it is about to change.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the other’s in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Lynn puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving, and having fun.

Blurb: Wolfe has a century under his belt as an Alpha werewolf for a small outcast pack. He loves taking care of those who have been rejected by their birth packs or lost them in accidents or wars. But Wolfe is lonely, as he hasn’t yet found his mate to share his burdens of leadership or his passions in bed.

One night he catches an alluring scent and gives chase to a cute but surprisingly reluctant guy named Peter. Though smart, funny, and headstrong, Peter is a rabbit shifter. And wolves and bunnies don’t mix, do they? Their first encounter certainly suggests so. They seem to have nothing in common. Wolfe is a bounty hunter living on a knife-edge of danger while Peter shelters discarded and wounded animals, believing in peace and mercy.

For these two vastly different men learning to trust one another for a working relationship is a lesson in love.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Susan Laine is another author that I have found to be a hit. I chose this book because the title intrigued me. Most times wolves eat bunnies and not in a good way. So when I saw this book I knew I had to get my hands on it. It was a fascinating tale about mates and how they don’t always just jump into a relationship, but proves that it takes a lot of work to make it.

Wolfe is the pack Alpha and has been doing a pretty good job at it. His pack is one that is unusual. Most packs are born into it. However, Wolfe’s pack is from all over. His father had been a pack Alpha and when the beta wanted to be Alpha he told Wolfe’s secret. After being forced to leave his pack, he had made the choice to start a pack of his own. So out one night, he smells the best scent. A scent that calls not only to him but also to his wolf. He has found his mate, and surprise his mate is a bunny shifter.

Peter is a bunny shifter and is afraid of his mate. Wolves eat bunnies, and in this case, he is right and wrong. He is about to get eaten but in a very good way. It takes some time to trust his mate and fall in love, but he wants to take his time. He wants to get to know his mate. However, his mate just wants to get to it. He has to stand up to him but his will power is not as strong as he wants, because he wants his mate also. And when they get together, it is like hot sex on a stick.

I had a blast reading this and hope that this is just a start to many more stories like this one. I loved it and look forward to reading more by Susan. The characters are well written and grab your attention from the start. You will fall in love with them and laugh at their antics. It gives you a strong Alpha wolf, a feisty bunny mate, excitement, a bit of temperaments and some hot sex.

It had caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me almost everything I could want in a story, although I wished for a bit of danger to be added, I was quite surprised by it.

I would recommend reading this amazing story and checking out the rest by Susan.

Eli had been basically sold by his family to the Axel Group. He started off making things to help people. Kill diseases and other helpful ideas were what he had wanted to create. That is until his owner had him make a weapon that would kill. If he resisted they would beat him but kept him alive no matter what.

His goal was to find a way to escape and then to destroy the weapon he had created. He lived with so much guilt that when help came in the form of his mate, he was afraid. He didn’t mind dying as long as he kept others safe. So when his mate basically saved him after his escape he was surprised and grateful.

Jonan was a warrior and hated the creations that killed. If you couldn’t kill with your own hands, then it was considered evil. That did not mean he hated his mate, in fact he wanted his mate naked and ready for him. He, at first followed to see what Eli was up to, and then when he found out that his mate was the man he had went to watch at the convention he was surprised and shocked. He knew his mate feared all and that he was leery of strangers. He decided to take matters in his own hand and protect his mate.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the other’s in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Sydney puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up.

Blurb: Falling for a coworker is rarely a good idea, especially for a man getting a last chance at salvaging his career. But from the moment Dwyer Knolls sees the beautiful, but socially awkward Takeo Hiroyuki, he seems destined to make bad decisions.

Takeo’s life is a string of failed attempts to please his traditional Japanese father. Unfortunately, succeeding in business turns out to be just as difficult for Takeo as changing from gay to straight. In fact, the only thing Takeo seems to truly excel at is taking notice of Dwyer Knolls.

When Dwyer and Takeo head to Mangrove, Florida on a real estate buying trip, their tentative friendship combusts and becomes much more. Is their sudden connection real enough to bank their futures on, or should they chalk the whole thing up to the daze inspired by the blue ocean breeze?

Review: Dwyer Knolls already has one foot out the door when his company is re-envisioned by its Japanese owner. While Dwyer is elated he gets to keep his job, he’s a little miffed that he isn’t partnered with the mysterious and brooding son of the owner.

Regardless of partners and pairings, Dwyer seems to have a way with Takeo that no one else does, the two become friends of a sort all while they both harbor feelings for the other. A business trip to Mangrove, Florida changes everything, and these two become lovers in the time it takes to slam the bedroom door.

They can’t hide out in Mangrove forever, and a phone call from Takeo’s unreasonable father threatens to burst the perfect little bubble they’ve surrounded themselves with. Life offers them a reprieve and while Dwyer knows he wants to keep Takeo where he has him, in his life and in his bed, he’s not quite sure Mangrove is the place to do that.

Calmes has laid the foundation for another amazing series of stories all about love and acceptance. I especially like the tie in with Aaron of Duncan from the Matter of Time world. Calmes has a knack for pairing polar opposites and making the road they travel to happiness, while often times bumpy, believable, and attainable.

Now we have the marriage of Calmes writing and Greg Tremblay’s narration, I assure you its perfection. Tremblay is very fluent with Asian cultures, phrasings, nuances and the language. His voice flows seamlessly from Dwyer with his dry, witty sense of humor to Takeo and his abrupt, unflinching attitude. But I think my favorite aspect to their relationship was the bond of communication they built before they became lovers.

Short, sexy, fast read that had me smiling the entire time.

Review: Each book in Into the New World collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. There is something about the way that Frey tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break. However, I must admit that it is a bit harder to truly get an understanding of it.

Kai was a human who saw things in his dreams. He had been dreaming of a sexy man, but he only saw him from the backside. He was friends with many of the paranormal world, even if he didn’t truly know it. He was a gentle young man, whose family disowned him when he was gay.

Now here he stands with his friends, and his eyes are on one big man standing across the room. He was turned on, but didn’t know if he should approach or not. He was known for sleeping with others, but I am not too sure about that. In one part of the story, it came across as if he had not been breached. So I am not too sure about that part. However when he looks at Darius, he is looking for the future.

Darius is looking at his mate. He knows a bit about Kai, but would love to know more about him. Now if only he would get off his ass and approach the young man. He knows that he will have to tell the man what he is, but until then they have many things to learn about each other.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Frey puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up.

He’s also met the man of his dreams. A week of daily lunch meetings in Central Park provides the perfect setting to get to know him better, and Derrick thinks it won’t be long before they take the next step and go on a date.

As part owner of one of the most prestigious law firms in New York City, Roman Bradford knows that professional success isn’t the be all end all.

It doesn’t matter that they are boss and employee, or that he’s feeling too much, too fast. Not when he can see the same emotions in Derrick’s eyes. Then life turns on a dime, and Roman has no option but to let his chance at happiness go.

A battle of wills ensues when a life-altering case brings them together a year later. Roman wants to do the right thing by not letting anything happen between them, and Derrick is determined to prove they’re meant to be together. Evidence will be presented and final arguments will be made.

Will they be able to come to an agreement, or will they opt to have their potential relationship dismissed?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Hearsay is the first installment in Bylaws series about attorneys working for Acosta, Bradford & Chadwick. It is also part of a trilogy with in the series. All of the books will focus mainly on Roman and Derrick. You will get to follow their journey as they deal with damaging rumors, the judicial system, and life’s curveballs while they make their way toward coupledom.

I was fascinated by this book, so much so that I could not put it down till I got the end. You need to have tissues near you when you read this story because it will have you in tears. It is a very intriguing story that will draw you in and keep you captivated.

Roman and Derrick have been attracted to each other for some time. Derrick’s past and Roman’s future makes it very difficult to move forward. However, that was on Roman. Derrick had told him about how his mother had lupus and slowly died. He never thought he would have the strength to go through that again, not even for someone he lived. It made him afraid, and Roman would never do that to him.

When a teenager comes forward and says that one of Derrick’s friends with benefits molested him things start to heat up real fast. It heats up because this same young man says that he had seen Derrick and Tyler having sex and flashing him. It was all lies but brings things to the front of what is truly wrong. Roman was HIV positive and he didn’t want Derrick to face it with him.

Derrick had wanted his boss and loved him with his heart, but he thought Roman would never want him. No matter what anyone said, he just didn’t believe it. Now there was a problem with one of his past lovers and Roman figured he lied to him. Things were just not going the way he planned. He wanted Roman to love him and want him.

He knew there was some important secret that was not being spoken, but damn he wanted answers. The answer was not what he had expected, but he would do everything to prove to Roman that he was the one he wanted forever. Now all they had to do is to make sure Derrick didn’t end up in prison for a crime he did not commit. This has more passion and fire in it, then any other book I have ever written.

I was captivated the moment I started reading it. I must admit that even though I choose the book, the more I kept looking at the cover, and the title I just put it down to read later. Which once I started reading it I could have smacked myself upside the head for not getting to it earlier. It was an amazing story that will have even the strongest man in tears. It was so tender and so compelling that I just couldn’t stop reading it.

I felt bad for Roman. Here he is with HIV and thinking that the one man he loved would turn from him once he found out. Although I could have smacked him upside the head for not having enough confidence in the man he loves. Derrick proved that he has got to be the strongest man ever. He had shown that when he was just a child, with fears of what would happen to the point where he will do anything for Roman. As long as they stayed side by side for it all. Now facing prison on top of it all, plus all the rumors going around one would have to stay strong through all the trying times.

I would definitely recommend reading this. Although I would say that, I am mad at Taylor, for making me have to wait for the next story to find out what happens next. A cliffhanger was not what I was thinking when I got to the end of the book.

I loved this book and cannot wait for the next one in this amazing story. I must admit that I don’t know too much about HIV and aids but can there be a happily ever after or will there be pain to look forward to. However, I look forward to finding out. This story definitely has a twist to it that I absolutely loved. Trust me you have got to read this book.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This book is just a whole lot of fun. There is also a whole lot of melodrama, which was once or twice over the top in my opinion, and for the most part, it was one character that could claim sole responsibility for it. The best part of that, it wasn’t the out and proud interior designer (house stager), Ace (aka Acelin). It was the mostly closest chiropractor, Zane, who at times did irritate me, but we can ignore that because the story is awesome.

In a way, I suppose, this story sort of serves as a coming out for Zane, who is thirty-seven and owns his own successful practice as a chiropractor in small-town Kansas. Hence the melodrama. Ace is a sweetheart, he has his own business he runs from home and moved to Kansas to get away from his deeply closest, mamma’s boy ex-boyfriend. He has established his business and he enjoys a close friendship with Erik, his best friend.

Which brings me to the cast of minor characters, who are just so damn lovable! Erik, Ace’s best friend, is also getting over (or got over, just too shy) a relationship that went sour. He is shy and lack self-confidence, but he also happens to have a crush on his best friend. I have to say, I really want Erik to get a happily ever after. He is all sweetness and soul. And maybe, ever so slightly, Ace took advantage of this friendship.

The other two main characters, who are just great, are Zane’s brother and sister-in-law, Brody and Adel. Adel is a force of nature and immediately buddies up with Ace, and Ace quickly calls her his fag-hag. She’s all for match making and at the end of the book was promising to find a match for Erik.

The epilogue just seemed rushed. It was written in the style where it’s a quick paragraph about each character and what happens to them. It was ok, in fact, it was good, yet somehow it didn’t quite match the style of everything else I just read. If it had been narrated by Ace, then perhaps it would match, but this was in third person. I just felt a little unsatisfied, like there could be more.

Blurb: Actors Ethan Grey and Alex Haynes are gay, but in Hollywood, they can’t be open unless they’re willing to be typecast in future movies or they’re dating prominent gay producers. Since neither are willing to become stereotypes, and neither have studio boyfriends, they take another path — hiding their relationship under the cover of a pretend girlfriend.

What works for Ethan, though, doesn’t work for Alex, who screws up to the point of losing his job and the chance to get another. His manager finally finds him another job across the pond, where he meets Nathan Wells.

Nathan can be the prominent producer Alex needs to further his career, but there’s something Alex doesn’t know about the man. Soon Wells grows obsessed with Alex, and he’ll do anything to keep Alex from getting away.

Though Nathan wants Alex for himself, there’s still Ethan to think about. Is the love story between Alex and Ethan really over? Or will Ethan find a way to get his boyfriend back?

Review: What happens when you live in a world where you are expected to live to the public standards? Ethan and Alex are gay and in love. Both young men are highly popular actors. Alex wants more form Ethan. Ethan is afraid of what would happen if they actually came out. Their careers are on a slippery slope.

This is a sweet story with some dark undernotes. The beginning is very sweet and we see how much these men love each other than there is a twist throwing Alex into depression, pain, anger, and possibly danger.

Iyana is one of my favorite authors but I will say this isn’t one of my favorite stories of hers. In my opinion and remember this is just my opinion it needed a bit more editing or perhaps a beta read, because I found a few loopholes. I also would have liked more of Alex and Ethan’s history and backstory. I really loved though the passion and love between Ethan and Alex and the emotions of Ethan dealing with being closeted.

If you like sweet romance, actors, closeted men, a dark twist with a happy ending this is for you.

Review: A really good story with amazing details. Conrad, Erick’s brother, meets Jake, a human who hates the reds. Intense and emotional scenes between the two as well as with Conrad and the rest of the pack.

I felt sorry for Conrad as he felt he was all alone without a true pack. But Jake is just the man he needs to help him. Fantastic story with hot sex.

Highly recommended.

Be warned this book will be continued.

Review: This was an interesting book, maybe more so if it was actually longer. It took a total of five minutes to read the whole book. For me to really get into it, there has to actually be a story. This was not what I expected.

Morgan always wanted to be a star guard and looked forward to reaching his goal. While at work, he hooks up with a star guard. Evander is what he would like to be. After a few rounds of hot sex, he takes Evander up on his lesson and heads to the stars.

It was meet, be fascinated by a star guard, have sex a couple of times and then that was it. There was nothing really in the story. I hope that the second book gives me more to read with a story line, maybe a bit of danger and excitement. This was a disappointment and I am just not too sure about the series any longer.

Review: I always wondered if men really did what they did in this book. You know screw anything that walked as long as they were young and gorgeous. Then I look around and say hell yes they do. I can see myself looking at the rest of J.D.’s books.

Trev is a forty-two year old man who slept with any young twenty something man. He was in fact pretty much a walking sex addict it would seem. Even with those around him telling him that he is in need of someone his age to stick by him for life. He wasn’t too sure but there was one that kept him looking longer.

Grant wanted to be that man for Trev, now all he had to do is to get Trev to figure it out.

This was a blast to read and I would recommend it. It has its sad parts but ended up happily ever after, or so I hope. I would love for it to be longer, because I would love to see where they go from this. It feels like I am just left hanging because I really want to know more about their future. It was a cute little story and you have got to read it.

Gorgeous men, hot sex, a little excitement and some growing up is offered in this story.

Review: Damn this was a hard book but it was a good read. It also tells me that I never want to see the inside of a prison. Ryan got busted for drugs and sentenced to over twenty years in a medium security prison. Knowing what happens in prison has in frightened and not sure what to do.

With the help of an inmate on his first hour there, he was given to an inmate that had been in for more than twenty years already. At first, he wasn’t so sure about Harrison, but after a while he realized he was in love. It is a hard life with lots of danger, excitement, fear, anger, pain and just a bizarre time all the way around. It would seem Harrison felt the same way about the young kid that has been shown to him.

I am not really sure how to give you a good review without telling the story so I will leave it at that. It was a damn good story that I wished many of the young would read. To see what they really do go through inside the joint and how to make it through it all. I had a blast reading this and felt bad for those who are in similar situations even though they did the crime.

It is a horrible place to be and for this young boy, his life is forever changed. I would recommend reading it.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Interesting story about a supposed human, Jason, who loses all his emotions when he was 25 and can now do some kind of mind magic, getting kidnapped by a human trafficking vampire’s goons and being able to escape and rescue all the others that were taken as well. He rescues Tyler, a tiger shifter and Toby a human from the vampire and they become his mates.

I didn’t understand how Jason became an Alpha when the story kept mentioning which paranormal creature he wasn’t but never elaborated as to what he actually was. I did like the fact that so many different paranormals and humans came together to help others that were kidnapped though.

Action packed with mystery and danger. Although I loved, the story I felt it was a little confusing at times, as the book needs a little editing because some sentences throughout the book don’t make sense with both spelling errors and omitted words that should be there. Other than that, it was a good read.

Review: Wow…emotions much??

In this novella, we get a closer glimpse of the pain and agony George and Jesse were going through when Jesse’s wife was insisting on keeping them separated. The emotions were off the charts and so hard to read. It made me physically ache for them.

Kennedy’s pain from finally losing Jesse was bought more to life here too. She actually finds comfort and a good friend in Zac, Jesse’s brother and I really think he’s what helps her start healing.

We also got a closer look at Zac. He is awesome! He has absolutely no filter and pretty much says and does what he wants (which right now, and hopefully permanently, is Elliott). I absolutely love him and Elliott together – they balance each other well and maybe Zac will get Elliott back to life and get him to live a little more and once and for all protect him from his awful father.

All this book did is wet my appetite for book 4! I want it right now!
