Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I came across Bronwyn’s books a few months ago and I get a kick out of them. This one is short, sweet and damn funny. It is the first book in the series and I must say it was a surprise. I would have liked it better had it been longer, with more details and feelings into it. It came off as a story that was rushed.

Ben and Shad had taken a liking to each other. Ben thought it was a one night stand, that is until he started getting sick. What a kicker for them, he is pregnant.

The start of the book doesn’t lead into the story, just has them getting all bothered, and then straight to the hotness. Then the next thing you know they get the shock of their lives. It just needs to be more detailed, with a bit more suspense, not insta love but having a bit of a time at first.

I hope the second book is longer and has a bit more meat to it. Other than those issues, I had a blast reading it. It was just over too quick to get more than a taste.

Craig has rescued his last shifters from the Glass Research Company. He knew he wouldn’t be able to do it for long, but now he’s at a loss about what to do with his life. Then Kameron offers him a job—but can he really live with a pack of shifters? Thomas had a comfortable life, at least until Kameron ruined it for him. Still, that doesn’t mean it has to change, and Thomas is ready to do his best to keep everything as it is.

When he meets his mate, he knows he won’t be able to do so for much longer, and he has to make a decision that could turn his life upside-down. Can Thomas get over the situation his old alpha created so many years ago and find a way to be happy with Craig?

And will Craig be able to see past the shell Thomas has built around himself and give the man a chance?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Gillham Pack 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 this author 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 at some point.

I came across Catherine a few months ago and she has already established a spot in my favorite authors list. There is just something about her characters, story and the way they mix with each other.

With this series I would suggest reading Whitedell Pride series book one first. You start there and then you will start seeing how all the characters cross over. I can’t stand to start a series and then it ends after a while. I want them to continue and it drives me nuts when they don’t. I am a big fan of these guys.

Craig used to work as a guard for scientist who did experiments on shifters. At first he just did his job, but that soon stopped. He found out that they were ware in their animal form as well as in their human form. So he switched and started helping them escape. On his last rescue, he had decided to stop. He was tired both physically as well as mentally.

Now he just needed to figure out where he was going to make his home. He wanted to stay with the pack but wasn’t sure it would be allowed. Then he found out that he was the mate to Thomas. What a shock that is considering Thomas was an ass.

Thomas had been forced to marry twenty years ago to his friend. However he had always known he was gay. He didn’t expect to ever tell anyone seeing as his alpha was an evil ass. Then his alpha got killed in a challenge. Now he had to make a choice. That all changed when he realized that Craig was his mate. Here he was married with kids, and had to decided.

I know by heart that Catherine’s books will always entertain me. When she 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 touch 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.

Blood Tied by Jacob Z. Flores Pre-release Review

Series: The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge, #2
Author: Jacob Z Flores
Genre: Paranormal
Length: Novel (220 pages)
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (September 7th 2015)
Heat Level: Moderate to Explicit
Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
Blurb: Thad Blackmoor’s heart is as cold as his icy magical abilities. He considers emotions a waste of his time and prefers to study the arcane, using the sacred books of his coven to grow in his craft. He aspires to supersede his father and elder brother Pierce in power, and now that his younger brother Mason has tapped into the rare warlock power of darkness, he needs to work harder than ever.

But Thad’s ambitions are halted when he saves Aiden Teine, a fire fairy, from a banshee. Thad’s immediate attraction to Aiden catches him off guard and thaws his cold heart for the first time. As Thad, Aiden, and his brothers investigate the connection between the banshee attack and the vampyre and shadow weaver who almost killed them, Thad tries to dodge Ben, a sexy warlock who won’t let him be after a one-night stand.

Their search leads them to the Otherworld, where something even more insidious is at work—something Thad will need more than logic to stand against.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Thad Blackmoor is the eldest of the Blackmoor brothers, but he hasn’t felt important for a while. He always held his mother’s attention, but fought to gain his father’s, even more so as their family grew. When their mother died it affected Thad more than anyone in the family, aside from his father.

Thad buried his emotions long ago and concentrates on honing his skills so he can be not only the best Warlock, but the best Blackmoor as well. He steps outside of his comfort zone just a teensy bit when he meets a sexy Warlock at a local coffee shop. But it’s another chance encounter with a Fire Fae Prince that finally begins to melt the young Warlocks frozen heart.

It’s not exactly the best time to deal with matters of the heart though. Thad’s new found Fae friend is on the run from a couple of pissed of Banshees. And the shadow weaver that tried to annihilate the Blackmoor clan not so long ago seems to not only still be watching them, he has his sights set on one Blackmoor in particular, Thad.

The infamous council sends the Blackmoor brothers along with their new-found friends – sexy Warlock and Fire Fae Prince – and Drake, the youngest Blackmoor brother’s boyfriend, into Otherworld to defeat the shadow weaver. Secrets, lies and betrayal run deep as the six young men race to stop the weaver before he succeeds in finishing them off.

It’s always a treat when an Author can mix numerous magical creatures and their particular legends, keep everything straight and manage to keep me entertained throughout. The Warlock Brothers can add demons, Fae and one dark, overbearing jackass to the mix of weavers and Vampyre. And we still don’t know exactly what Drake is. He can’t be spelled, controlled or turned, but he doesn’t give off any vibes to any of the various beings that he might belong to their race.

As if fighting for your life while trying to protect the Gate and Otherworld weren’t enough to drive any one insane, Thad has to deal with his insane attraction to a certain red-headed Fae as well as the anger and jealousy pouring of the sexy – it was supposed to be a one night stand – Warlock. Staying focused is difficult, but one missed step could cost them all their lives.

I have to say, this series is very interesting, entertaining and intriguing. A lot of drama and angst mixed with passion and faith. I hope I’m not confusing you with my choice of words, but I don’t want to give certain aspects of the story away, you will have to grab a copy and read for yourself. Definitely worth the read, but read it in order, if you haven’t read Spellbound yet you should start there or you’ll be lost at certain times during this story.

Blurb: Raised by bear shifters, Paul has always felt out of place. As a human, he’s not allowed to play a role in the shifter community he’s been surrounded by his entire life. When his job at Bear Mountain is jeopardized, he considers leaving the only home he’s ever known to seek out the thing that’s always felt missing in his life.

Betas Brynn and Tomas awaited their human mate for many years. When an orphaned infant showed up on their doorstep, they knew the male would one day grow to be their mate. Ignoring their protective instincts, they left the valley and the male behind, knowing they couldn’t be in his life or they’d threaten the future they’d one day have together.

When the two bears finally return to find Paul a man, they know it’s time to claim what they’ve always known was theirs.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the second book in the Bear Mountain series. Brynn and Tomas, bear shifters. Leave Bear Mountain once they discover an infant is their mate. I really felt for both these strong men. They wanted their mate to grow up and have a life without any influence from them. It must have been difficult to leave behind everything they knew.

Paul is a human who grows up never feeling like he fit in. I could completely understand his anger when the truth comes out. The devastation he must have felt was heartbreaking to read. I loved the way the story progressed in such a way that there was more to it than just a love story. There was mystery, action and adventure as it seemed the McCreary boys are starting with their trouble making ways only to discover a more diabolical intent put into motion.

The entire book had me holding my breath awaiting the outcome on different occasions as well as sitting on the edge of my seat. Well written with hot sex that adds spice to the mix. I loved it and can’t wait to see what else the author has in store for this series.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order. Also coincides with the Angel Pack Series.

One thing I really like about both series is that they are not just about one mating. The reader also gets snippets from the other established matings, as well as other characters who are not yet mated. I like being able to revisit with those already mated and get a sneak peak of future stories to come.

In this book the full truth is finally revealed about why Ryland did what he did with Jesse as a child. Phenex is able to also tell his side of things. I really enjoyed the story about Phenex and Ryland. It was about time they got back together.

I really felt for Ryland. He did what he thought was right with the information he had. Things worked out differently than he hoped, but not due to his fault. That didn’t mean he didn’t feel guilt. Phenex was in no better a spot. They were so mislead. It was good that they were finally able to clear the air and make things right between them.

This book was also showed the evolution of Jesse and Micah. It showed not only Jesse’s growth of power, but also their relationship.
I must say this book was full of hot sex scenes. Not just with Ryland and Phenex, but also Jesse and Micah. These couples are seriously smoking hot with a nice little amount of kink thrown in.

And DAMN, Malachi is one evil bastard, and turns out he is not working alone. Yup, there is another fucktard helping Malachi. I really cannot wait to see what happens to these two when they finally get their asses kicked. Plus there was another little surprise cameo.

I enjoyed this addition to the Angel Pack world and look forward to reading future books. I really want to know what happens with Crew especially.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This book is a collection of the three novellas which make up Alex Carreras’ Sangre Series. It makes perfect sense that this series was released in the one volume since the stories are tightly connected together, so much so that it could almost be read as one story. Luckily, since this is the one volume, there is no need to worry that you are reading the books in the right order, something that is essential for the Sangre series.

The stories themselves are all interesting and enjoyable, though something I noticed with all three is that the action seemed to be glossed over a bit. However, the characters themselves are all enjoyable and you can really see their development. For me, it was the six MCs that made the stories for me rather than the actual plot line. The attraction between the guys was hot, but this too sometimes felt like it was being glossed over.

Firstly, in Buzz & Blow, we are introduced to the town Sangre in Florida and the vampires that work at the hairdressers, Everlasting. Their rival across the street is the rougher, vampire-run barber shop, Killer Kuts. Asher from Everlasting meets the dark and mysterious Niko from Killer Kuts. They find themselves surrounded by the mystery of solving who the vampire is that is killing humans and in the process drag their friend from Everlasting and Killer Kuts along with them.

Then we go to Shave & Shimmer, where Tory from Everlasting and Ray, new to Killer Kuts (spotting the trend here?) meet under the watchful match-making eye of Tory’s friend from the first book, Asher. Ray has some baggage from his past. He has mourned the death of his lover and sire for over a hundred and fifty years.

Tory on the other hand is essentially a ray of sunshine, pun intended although unfortunately this description of the character does not always come across. As well as facing Ray’s past, there is an underlying current of trouble spilling over from the first book.

Then we end with Fade & Fluff, where the owners of Everlasting, Jerrod, and Killer Kuts, Kaidron, meet up but not for the first time. These guys have a long history together. They are ex-lovers. We find that out quite quickly in the first story. Unfortunately, I just don’t think there was enough emphasis on their past and what exactly went wrong for the guys. This story is about tying up the loose ends of the first two books as well as getting the ex-lovers to work out their differences.

Once again, I think the danger that the six MCs are facing needed more (though I’m not entirely sure what, I can’t put my finger on it).

Overall it was enjoyable and you do really need to read all three to get complete satisfaction from the overarching plot.

Challenge of the Darkness by Dirk Greyson

Length: Novel (234 pages)
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (August 31st 2015)

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
Blurb: When alpha shifter Mikael Volokov is called to witness a challenge, he learns the evil and power-hungry Anton Gregor will stop at nothing to attain victory. Knowing he will need alliances to keep his pack together, Mikael requests a congress with the nearby Evergreen pack and meets Denton Arguson, Evergreen alpha, to ask for his help. Fate has a strange twist for both of them, though, and Mikael and Denton soon realize they’re destined mates.

Denton resists the pull between them—he has his own pack and his own responsibilities. But Mikael isn’t willing to give up. The Mother has promised Mikael his mate, told him he must fight for him, and that only together can they defeat the coming darkness. When Anton casts his sights on Denton’s pack, attacks and sabotage follow, pulling Denton and Mikael together to defeat a common enemy.

But Anton’s threats sow seeds of destruction enough to break any bond, and the mates’ determination to challenge the darkness may be their only saving grace.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Mikael Volokov is the Alpha of the Yellowstone pack. He’s strong, fierce and commanding. Mikael doesn’t tolerate dissention or anyone questioning his authority, it’s why his pack is so strong and united.

That being said, he’s not a brutal bastard, unless you go after something or someone he holds dear. He listens to his pack, considers their concerns and does everything possible to ensure their safety and happiness. When he’s called to witness a challenge and winds up witnessing something more dark and sinister than expected, he lands in the crosshairs of that darkness.

Denton Arguson is the Alpha of the neighboring pack, Evergreen. He is nearly as fierce as Mikael and definitely as loyal to his pack. When the two realize they are fated mates, Mikael couldn’t be happier. He’s dreamed about his mate since he was a boy, but Denton is less than pleased. He fights the bond and tries to ignore the connection he has with Mikael, but fate won’t be ignored. It will take a lot of patience, understanding and communication if these two are going to fulfill the destiny that was created for them before they were even born.

I have to say, I knew this was going to be a good book, I love everything from this Author. I was literally blown away by how good it was though. Greyson took the mythology that circles shifters and tweaked it just enough to give us something fresh and new.

I loved the references to the Mother and giving things back to the earth so they would be rewarded in return. ‘As ye sow so shall ye reap’ is the moto these wolves live by. But everything in life has to have balance. Where there is light, there is darkness, and when the darkness tries to destroy the land, the packs, and most of all, the wolves spirits, it will take a lot of love, life and trust to defeat it.

A must read for shifter fans, but there is also the added element of what almost reads as earth magic in this story. The relationship between Mikael and Denton is electric, passionate and turbulent. After all, they are both Alphas and while the world Greyson has created doesn’t even blink an eye at two men being mates, two Alphas being mated is unheard of. They have to find their balance as well not only to defeat the darkness, but to find their happiness.

Wonderful story, the flow and pace is perfect and kept me enthralled from beginning to end, and I cannot wait to see where this new series will take several wolves in particular with more books down the road.

Cheetah shifter Henry Dale was just sixteen when his entire coalition was burned alive. Having to stay with the neighboring wolf pack should have been terrifying for him, especially as one of them was responsible for setting the fire, but meeting the alpha’s son, Will Gray, made him feel safer than ever.

When the council came and took Henry away, deciding he would be better off with his own kind, he not only lost his best friend, but also his first love. On the night of his thirtieth birthday he decides on a whim to sign up to a mating agency, hoping that maybe he can find love again.

He never thought he would see Will again but fate, it seems, has other plans.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in The Happily Ever After Mating Agency collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. However it can be read as a standalone.

I have read all of these stories and this one is my absolute favorite of them all. Henry is a cheetah shifter who had lost his entire pride. They were burned alive, but he had been spared. Scared and alone, he was lost. That is until a wolf shifter found him.

Will had known when he found Henry that there was something special about him. Then the council had decided that he needed to be with his own kind. Will had never forgotten him, and he was surprised to find Henry had not either. So he had decided to hook up with the mating agency to try to find him. Three years later and he got lucky. It seemed fate had decided they deserved to be with each other also.

It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

When Jane puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Reviewer: Leigh

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

Wow, this book had a lot of drama and angst going on. Matt’s history is rough to read about. He really did not have a good childhood at all. Because of that he has issues left over. Together he and Ingor have founds ways to deal with them. That includes a pretty much 24/7 BDSM relationship.

Things are going good for them up until Matt has a fall and suffers from a traumatic brain injury. That is when things start going seriously wacky. So much goes on and certain things happen that leave me confused and a little befuddled. Basically I was wondering how the hell these things even went down. Suffice to say I was pulled out of the book.

Things do finally get back on track with the relationship between Matt and Ingor. I really do like the relationship these two have. It is BDSM, but there is a great deal of love and caring to it.

I enjoyed a good part of the book. However the drama and angst with Matt’s past coming back to get him was a little much for me. It just did not feel needed with all the other things going on. It was also nice to see the other characters from the past two books show up and take part.

So overall it was an OK read and I still look forward to more in the series.
