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.
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.
