Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Very well written story about a young man, Jason, who assumes another guy, Matt, is the one flattening his tires. He finds out he’s wrong when he’s attacked and Matt comes to the rescue.

Loved this story. Intense at times and sweet at others. Matt and Jason seemed like a cute couple. Glad they got together in the end.

But he doesn’t forget, and five months later, he returns for Kyle, just to discover the man is pregnant and not so sure he wants to have his emotions played with anymore.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is a revised and expanded story.  Each book in The Pregnant Mate 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 Marcy Jacks 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 Marcy.

There is something about the way that Marcy 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.

Although getting them to the mating seems to suck royally. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

Aelius and Kyle were mates and things should be great once they found out. It was not the case though. Aelius was straight or so he thought, but once he was rescued from the vampires he just had to have Kyle. After some words about it being a onetime deal, they had went at each other.

The problem was once someone says something, it is a bit hard to believe that they change their minds. So when Aelius, after some pressure from his alpha, came to see him some months later he finds out that his little mate is pregnant.

Kyle was scared when Aelius found out that he was pregnant. He loved his mate and wanted everything in his powers to be with him. He would do everything he could to show his mate, but he was frightened. Now if it had been me, I would have gone up to Aelius and just smacked him upside the head.

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 Marcy 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: Former competitive surfer and Honolulu homicide detective Kimo Kanapa’aka is in his element in his home state of Hawaii. But a ski trip with his partner, fire investigator Mike Riccardi, knocks him off balance. As a bitter storm rages outside the condo where they’re staying, one of Mike’s college buddies is feuding with his wife and the other is making sexy overtures to Kimo.

Will these tensions ruin the vacation and perhaps even drive a wedge between Kimo and Mike?

Purchase Link: http://www.mlrbooks.com/ShowBook.php?book=SLS2_NP2

Review: Mike and Kimo is a story about two men in love, in a committed, monogamous relationship. It’s a story about compromise. Kimo loves the sun and surfing, Mike likes cool weather and skiing. Mike has a chance to get together with two of his college friends and their spouses for a ski vacation, so Kimo agrees. Will the raging storm outside also find its way into their relationship?

This story is very well written. I’ll admit when I first started reading and it began with sex I was thinking I wouldn’t like it, but I saw right away it was to show their relationship, not in just a physical light. There is a good storyline about relationships and marital abuse in this story. I loved both Mike and Kimo and would love to see them in some full-length books. There is always room for a sexy homicide detective and fire investigator …just sayin’.

If you like, stories about relationships, hunky fire investigators, sexy homicide detectives, vacations, skiing, and some hot man-sex this is definitely for you.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: The first book is part of the Bear County series. Each one of Lynn’s books in this 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 well that is not true because three men are hotter. I love the way this anthology was put together. I was so stoked by the news that this was coming out.

Four of my favorite authors getting together and putting an anthology out there has made me jumping around the house and bouncing off the walls. Each story caught my attention and fascinated me. I could not put the book down till I finished.

To me there is nothing better than a good paranormal but you add in cowboys it gets to be smoking hot. Gorgeous men who are also shape shifters defending what is theirs is a major catch for me. What makes it even hotter is that

Papa Bear from the first story is actually the main character for book two. Then Aisley is one of the main characters for book three. And then there is book four, Tay was an orphan taken in by Conn. So Tay is one of the main characters for book four. The best part is that they are all connected. Nothing better than that.

COWBOY FOREVER by Lynn Hagen ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts
Simon had his heart ripped out by a man he’d fallen in love with. But when he finds out that his ex-lover is nothing more than a piece of dirt, Simon decides to swear off men…for a little while, at least. That plan is put to the test when he runs into Mason and Jeremiah.

When both men claim to be his mate, Simon thinks the two are running some sort of scam to get him into bed. He turns them down flat but they won’t take no for an answer. When Simon is attacked and ends up in the hospital, Jeremiah and Mason insist on taking Simon home. As much as Simon wants to kick them to the curb, he slowly finds himself sandwiched between both mountainous men. Can Simon handle two sexy shifters or is his heart too battered to love again?

There is nothing better than a male pregnancy story and scissors. You will have to read the book to get the scissor reference. However trust me this story will have you laughing your ass off. I love the way the bears are when they find their mates and are so protective of their families.

I had such a blast reading this and love Lynn’s books. It gave me bear shifters, a feisty mate, ménage a trois, excitement, a bit of suspense and some danger. Not to mention a crazy ex-boyfriend that you just want to shoot. I have never had so much fun reading as I have this story. I also love the fact that this actually leads into the next story of this anthology. It was a blast to read and cannot wait for the next story to come out.

PAPA BEAR’S PUP by Stormy Glenn ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts

Papa Bear was president of the Blue Angels, one of the deadliest biker clubs west of the Mississippi. He answered to no one, going where he wanted when he wanted. When being on the road so much takes its toll on him, Papa Bear heads to the woods to let his bear roam free.

Finding a man beaten and covered in blood was never part of that plan but turning his back on the wounded man just wasn’t possible, especially since he suspects the little wolf might be his mate. Bartholomew ‘Bug’ Matthews was on the run. Finding himself rescued by a burly tattooed biker was not where he expected to be but he wasn’t complaining.

Papa Bear was the sexiest man Bug had ever seen. When the handsome man claims him, Bug couldn’t be happier. But his joy is short-lived when Papa Bear disappears, leaving Bug alone and in more danger than ever. When a vicious attack leaves Papa Bear with no memory of his mate, will he lose his one chance to find happiness or will Bug be able to protect himself and the secret he holds?

Like I said in the first part of the last review, there is nothing better than male pregnancy. I loved this book and hope to hell that these authors give me another anthology because it was so much fun to read and I had such a blast. It gave me everything that I could possibly want in a story and so much more. Gorgeous men, sexy shifters, feisty mates, excitement, danger and some hot sex.

I love that even though Papa Bear was the president of the deadliest biker gangs around, and he has lost his memory he still senses there was something missing. I loved this book and look forward to reading more. Also, Bug’s brother is one of the main characters in the next story. I love the connection there is in this.

FINDING CONN’S HAPPINESS by Bellann Summer ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts
Leaving the local hangout after a much-needed drink, tiger shifter Conn Caspian senses the bloody man stumbling down the street is his mate. Taking him back to his ranch, Conn is delighted with his murmuring little wolf. But danger is coming. Wolf shifter, Aisley Matthews, is on the run after managing to escape his father and the enforcers. Hoping to find a place to hide in a small town, he comes across his mate in the huge tiger shifter Conn Caspian.

Trying to do the right thing by leaving doesn’t work when the connection of their souls and Conn’s dominance has Aisley succumbing to the big cat’s mating rituals. Confrontation is coming, and rituals that can kill need to be dealt with. Magic and turmoil abound for these two, yet through it, all love blooms and Conn finds his happiness. But, can he keep it?

I just keep laughing the more I get into these stories. I love the whole male pregnancy, but with this one, it is a bit different. Tigers are usually solitary creatures, but when they reach the five hundred mark, they are forced to take females to get pregnant. Kind of sounds stupid to me. When one meets their mate, they must take him to the council and be blessed.

Now I love Aisley because everything he thinks just rumbles out of his mouth, and it doesn’t matter what it is. He is a feisty little mate that has me laughing the whole time. I loved this story and look forward to reading more. It gives you sexy mates, gorgeous shifters, evil father’s, excitement, and danger. I had a blast reading this.

THAT DEEP, RUMBLING PURR by Marcy Jacks ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts

Mateo Colt found something interesting while out for a run. He found a rare golden tiger shifter stuck in a poacher’s trap. The problem is that Mateo is a mustang shifter, and the sight of an animal that might very well try to eat him is as unsettling as watching the creature suffer. He can’t leave him to die, however, or to be picked up by poachers, especially when the tiger passes out from the pain, revealing a young man who doesn’t look like he could cause harm to anyone.

When he frees the shifter, he brings him home to his ranch where he cares for him, but when the tiger awakens, Ty is suddenly so delectable that Mateo can’t keep his hands to himself. The thing that might just make him run away, however, is learning that he is mated to him. Mated for life to a shifter that could kill him if he ever loses control of his wilder side.

Now this story, like I said is connected to Bellann’s and it was a fantastic read. I did find that it was just a bit harder to understand then the other, but that did not deter from it. I loved it and look forward to reading more by Marcy. I love the fact that instead of the normal shifters, this one has a mustang in it. Gorgeous shifters, feisty mates, excitement, and hot sex are just a part of what this gives you.

What made this even more spectacular was the fact that Mateo’s horse is afraid of his tiger mate and they don’t connect the way they are supposed to at first. As for Ty, he is a golden tiger, which is rare for even normal tigers. He is just a bit different than other shifters that I have read about. I had a blast reading this story.

OVERALL
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 book. When these authors puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up, however I think I love the fact that they got together and put out an anthology. They do have a tiny bit of a serious tone to them but there is more 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: Sidney has quietly loved twin brothers Brook and Colby for years, watching and pining as they came to his house for the summer every year. Painfully aware that they have each other, have no reason to notice the unremarkable duck they grew up babysitting.

Then the twins and their mother are attacked days before an important meeting that will change the shifter world forever. When the twins come to stay with Sidney’s family until the attackers are caught, Sidney learns that all things have their season, and even violent protests will not keep two rabbits from the man for whom they’ve been patiently waiting…

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Sidney fell for twin brothers and fellow shifters, Brook and Colby, when he was not yet a teenager after watching them… take care of each other in his boathouse. Sidney thought he made a decent effort to hide his feelings, but the twins took notice and decided to leave Sidney until he was old enough to understand what it was he truly wanted. Now the three of them are fast approaching adult hood, and Sidney wants them more than ever.

Shifters have a different sense of morality and their boundaries are looser than those of humans. While some of their kind are upset about the fact that this throuple includes twin brothers, there are those that are violently upset about the fact that the brothers are rabbit shifters and Sidney is a duck shifter.

I was so excited when I saw Derr was finally releasing a sequel to Backwoods Asylum. While this is set in the same world, and there is a brief cameo with my favorite snake/wolf shifter couple, this is the story of Sidney, Brook and Colby and how they manage to turn an infatuation into a working relationship. Yes, there is twincest, but it’s tasteful and molded into the story in a way that it flows and works well.

Well written, engaging, intriguing, and passionate. Rabbit Season is a welcome addition to this series of short stories that my new favorite indulgence, I’ll likely read this one over and over again. A must read for fans of shifter stories and passionate romances.

You can’t choose who you fall in love with. Despite knowing from a young age that he was gay, Scott Murphy couldn’t imagine life without Shelly. He threw away the labels and had eleven amazing years with her, but now, he feels even more lost trying to figure out how to move on after Shelly’s death. After nearly a year of watching Scott fade away, Shelly’s father forces him to start living again.

When there’s nothing to distract him or dull his senses, he spends too much time obsessing over how he should have been able to help his sister. When Scott shows up at his group session, Chris decides that maybe some good can come out of his sister’s death. 

There’s no denying that Chris is the first man to catch Scott’s attention in a long time, but how can he move on when just thinking of Shelly sends him to his dark place? 

The road to recovery won’t be an easy one, but Chris is determined to help Scott see that life is still worth living. But before Scott can allow himself to admit what he feels for Chris, he knows he has to reveal the full truth about Shelly’s death.

 A Restored Man

 (The Men of Halfway House 03)
 by

Jaime Reese

Cole Renzo thinks his greatest challenge is to behave for the remainder of his term at Halfway House. Until he meets his new boss, Ty Calloway, a man who ticks off every box on Cole’s list of interests.

A sought-after restorer and customizer of exotic and collectible cars, Ty had enough confidence to command what he wanted in life, until one fateful night changed everything. Almost two years later, he’s slowly rebuilding his life with great control. He’s defied the odds and works tirelessly to be the man he once was—but he still feels broken.

Cole’s candor and unfiltered personality awaken Ty’s barely-remembered desire to greet each new day with a smile, while Ty’s unwavering acceptance of Cole’s quirks and brash humor makes Cole feel as if he fits in for the first time in far too long. When a nemesis threatens Ty’s personal restoration and the things he holds dear, Cole is determined to protect their relationship, even if that means sacrificing everything he’s worked so hard to achieve.

But Ty will have to let his guard down, surrender control, and admit he needs Cole first, even if that puts himself at risk of breaking beyond repair.
