Blurb: Micah can be an ass, he admits it. But most of the time when he says something stupid, it’s a backfired attempt at teasing. Micah never pictured himself settling down, there were too many men and women out there to keep him busy hoping from one bed to another. There’s only been one man who got under his skin. His brother’s best friend. However, a series of misunderstandings and arguments and years of resentment aren’t easy to overcome.

Rylan’s mother dumped him on the pack’s doorstep when he was a pup after finding out her husband wasn’t quite human. It left Rylan with a chip on his shoulder and a need to prove himself. Micah can’t help but bite back when Rylan pokes at him, but always assumed that most of the animosity between them was relatively harmless and shrugged it off as just not getting along.

Since being cornered by his little brother and warned to play nice, Micah decides that maybe the past is better left where it is. Only before he can come to terms with his own mistakes and apologize, Rylan is kidnapped and no one knows where to look.

Micah searches until he is ready to collapse from exhaustion. He even challenges his alpha. The pack and coven desperately search for Rylan, but when they finally find Rylan after six weeks, it may be too late to save him.

Trevor’s devious mind and scheming nature isn’t going to be easily outwitted.

Review: Each book in Blood Moon Pack Alliance 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 S.A. Welsh 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.

Micah and Rylan have been at odds since they were teenagers. However if you look deep inside of him, you will see that every time he says something it backfires on him. When he had first started when his feelings for Rylan was when he was in his twenties. Rylan had asked him out and he turned him down. He was too old for Rylan and knew that he needed to mature.

Then when Rylan turned nineteen and ready, Micah had been pretty much wasted. He had said some nasty stuff to him, which he regretted even now. However when Rylan is abducted and missing for over six weeks, Micah is lost. He is angry and there is something back there that is trying to let it be known.

Rylan had always known that Micah was his mate. He tried to let Micah know, but it had always ended up with him getting hurt. Even now he smells the woman who Micah had been with. He had not expected to be kidnapped, beaten and tortured. They had done many things to him, even branding him and there was something in him that needed out.

However he feared shifting, because the ass had skinned him. It wasn’t till he was rescued that the others knew something had been done to him that even he had not expected. Now he was the one that was the danger. The pack had to come up with a way to keep them all safe and get Rylan back.

There is something about this story that makes the rest just perfect. Here they spent their time fighting what was meant to be. Even though Micah had not known they were mates, he felt something for Rylan. It wasn’t till Rylan was taken that he was willing to acknowledge it. He had tried to show Rylan that he was trying to make the past better. He was trying to apologize but Rylan had not known it. He blamed himself for it all. This is not one of those find, mate and instant love stories. There is a bit of pain and angst in it, so when the happiness begins, the story becomes even better.

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 this amazing author 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 bit 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 almost 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.

Review: Each book in Brac Village collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. Although I would also recommend reading Brac Pack series first. You will meet the characters with those books first. That and it is a fun filled ride with them. 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.

I am never let down when I get my hands on one of these books, in fact I become a stalker just sitting there waiting for one of Lynn’s books to come out. She is probably one of my top five favorite authors.

Kevin had found out awhile back that he was one hell of a dangerous paranormal. He can get into people’s minds, change their ideas and even break them. He was sent away to learn how to control his powers. When he notices a gorgeous shifter, he is scared to death. He keeps running away when things don’t go his way, but he learns that Denver will come get him.

Denver knows that his little mate is scared, but it is not what he thought. He had assumed it was because of his shifter but it was in fact Kevin thought he should be afraid that Kevin could control his mind. Now that boy needs a good spanking. Then there is another Styre Mente trying to take his mates powers. I guess it is time to show that jerk whose boss and protect a mate.

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 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 had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

Now to be completely honest this book was a tad bit harder to truly get into. It had a lot of description in it that just made it a bit more confusing. It is like being muddled down with too much description. Now I did love the fact that there was a secondary character in that kind of mingled it up a bit. Angel is not only the sheriff but the beta of his pack. He has one major love in his life, his beautiful truck he named Lola. Now who in their right mind would steal his truck? He knows he might not ever find it but he was going to give it his hard try.

Peri was an Alpha in his own right. He had been living on the streets for a very long time. He didn’t trust full-grown Alphas, but the children he adored. When he had been younger, he had been taken in and taught how to steal. The problem was a member of the pack had taken a liking to him. A very cruel and sadistic man was searching to get him back. To top it off he has a shifter who says he is his mate and wants him. Things get a bit dicey there for them but as long as he gets to take his children with him it would be good.

It is a good story but way too much description put in. It muddled the story to me. That just drove me crazy. I was glad to have read this story but I could have done without all of the mixing. It didn’t put me off the story though. I did have a blast with it. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Lacey puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up.

I love the way Catherine 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 Catherine Lievens.

Oliver was human until some scientist got their hands on him. They were trying to create shifters and now he was stuck with a bear inside of him. He didn’t know how to shift and wasn’t sure what to do. He was getting weaker every day but was afraid for his mate. Sebastian took good care of him, but Oliver didn’t want to mate with Sebastian if he was going to die. He never wanted to hurt his mate. He knew his mate planned on locating one of the men responsible for it. He loved his mate and would do what it took to protect him.

Sebastian would do all he could do to not only protect his mate but to keep him alive. Once Oliver was helped, he was afraid to hurt him. Talk about having a communication problem. These two are so perfect for each other that I have a blast with them. I love all the characters that are in this book and look forward to reading their stories also. Catherine has always managed to give an amazing paranormal romance that has a few twists to it and the characters are the type that you would want around you.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have read many books by Amber Kell and I am usually always surprised. There is something about this story that drew me in and kept me there. However there was something missing in it to make it a five heart review. I don’t know exactly what it was but it just seemed a bit off. It did not however stop me from loving it. The characters are so damn hot, sexy and sweet. I loved Declan a bit more than Phoenix though.

Declan is a house elf and he has been in love with his master for quite some time. Although it doesn’t stop him from going out one night to hook up with a sexy little wolf. Although once the wolf figured out who Declan worked with, let’s just say he didn’t get anything but a head ache from him. It wasn’t till one night when the blood had not come in yet, and Declan gave Phoenix some of his that things started to change.

Phoenix had always looked at his butler with more than just a casual boss way. He has wanted him for some time but never made a move. He always brought females home to drink from because he knew he wouldn’t take too much blood. However after tasting his butler’s blood, he was sure he had found his mate. Now if only the stupid wolves and wood elves would smarten up a bit. Danger came in many forms, now he just had to keep his mate safe.

I got a kick out of this and I absolutely adored Declan’s mother. She is a feisty woman who protects her son with some unique ways. I had such a blast with this story and hope that this is the beginning to a new series. Although you do hear about them in another series, I just hope to hear more about their friend Master Lorrie. I loved it and look forward to reading more by Amber Kell.

I would definitely recommend this hot little novella to everyone. It gives you a bit of laughs for the day.

Blurb: Jeremy Long didn’t mean to buy a property at the auction, but then he did. Now he’s the owner of a lonely mountain top farm reputed to be haunted by an old moonshiner. That’s okay though, because Jeremy doesn’t believe in ghosts.

Arrived at his new place, Jeremy is delighted to meet his neighbor’s son, the gorgeous Ephraim Flacket. Fraim stays over for the night, and the two young men cement their new friendship over a skinny dip in the river and a tough game of chess.

That night the ghost visits. Startled out of sleep, Jeremy has to face the possibility that there may be things that exist even though he doesn’t believe in them. As the night wears on, Fraim tells Jeremy the dramatic history of Elbert the ghost and his lover Blake, and Jeremy faces a more personal ghost — the deeply buried horror and regret caused by the death of his childhood friend Ralphy.

With the sunrise comes a fresh start for everybody. Ghosts are laid, flowers are planted, and the two young men’s relationship consummated.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: A quick read, this story leaves me torn in various directions as to how I should feel about. It’s the story of Jeremy, whose life changes because he is sent to an auction as a reward for work (odd, but I’ll bite), gets an old home whose owner has lapsed on taxes. But then he quickly also finds his job/position changing, all because he isn’t seen as a team player (okay, I’ll take that one). So Jeremy moves into the middle of nowhere, where he meets Ephraim. The only thing that Jeremy is continually told – your place is haunted.

First off, as the title implies there is a haunting. I thought it was cool the little bit of back story given and how it was tied up nicely at the end about the ghost Elbert and his lover Blake who had been killed. The one thing is that I was disturbed by “consecrating” gravesites by having sex, but you’ll have to read to the end to know why this happened.

Secondly, the storyline of why Jeremy finds it difficult to trust – heart breaking and interesting in how it is handled. It felt the ghost aspect of the story took away from the seriousness and made it a bit comical while at the same time tying loose ends up for Jeremy. As for Ephraim himself, well I feel that there was a lot of story missed about him, too, but all in all he is a likable character, as is Jeremy.

Review: Each book in the Moon 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. From those previous books you will start to learn who each character is and how they mix with all the others. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.

I love the way Amber 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 Amber.

There is something about the way that Amber tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will have you trying to figure out the ending every 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.

Inno and Mikel are mates but their communication skills suck.

Mikel wants Inno to bite him, completing their bond but he is afraid to mention it. Whereas Inno is afraid that to bite him, he would have to top him. He is afraid of what Mikel will say when or even if he mentions it. Not to mention the trouble his sister keeps on bringing him. They have the mutants causing troubles and are placing them in danger once again. Then there are the Alpha’s dreams, which are in fact showing what is happening and what is going to happen. The god’s just keep getting in the way of everyone’s happiness.

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 Amber puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a serious tone to them but there is a bit 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.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story has a lot going on it. From a hostage negotiation gone wrong involving Sloane to finding out a huge surprise that I did not see coming about Travis this book was nonstop. I loved the descriptions of the scenery and the suspense and mystery throughout the book was awesome.

The hostage scene did break my heart at the way it ended as that man shouldn’t have been killed, especially by an aggressive, mean, S.W.A.T. team. Very well written on the edge of your seat story with a lot of drama, suspense, and intense scenes at times.

Definitely worth reading.

Absolutely loved it.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Leigh

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

Raphael Angel, aka Raffy has had a really bad last five years. But it really started the day he first shifted and his father discovered he was an omega. During that time he was beaten by both his father and brother, as well as others in the pack. When his father finally saw him dressed in a shirt, that is when his father gave him over to the one known as the Master.

During his captivity he was beaten and raped. Finally saved and reunited with his older brothers who never knew of him before. He also meets his mate, the enforcer Christian. However due to his years as a prisoner, he has trouble even being touched by his family, let alone a mate.

Christian is perfect for Raffy. He knows the horrors Raffy has suffered and the last thing he wants to do is cause Raffy any more pain. So Christian takes things very slow with Raffy, and a lot of cold showers. He has no problem simply seating with Raffy for hours and talking, or just sitting with him as he reads a book. Christian does whatever wants and never rushes him. When the two finally come together it is both sweet and damn sexy hot.

Raffy, once he was safe slowly comes out of his shell and really starts to open and be free. With help from the other mates he starts to dress the way he wants. Christian helps him accept his need to wear female clothing. In fact Christian finds it sexy. But he also starts to gain his powers back. A new character also helps Raffy and the rest of the pack know what it is to be a true omega. Turns out Raffy is pretty badass in his own right.

But this book is not only about Christian and Raffy. There is a lot more revealed about the overall story arc than has been covered both this series and the other interconnecting series, Beyond the Angle Pack. Some secrets are finally told. The heart from the prophecies is finally confirmed. If you have been paying attention like I have then you probably already knew who it was.

Also someone who should have been protecting the paranormal world turns out to be the bigger threat. A hell of a lot happens in this book and a good bit of it leaves me wondering where the series will go next. Some things were settled, but a big ass can of issues just opened up. Questions were answered as well as new questions were raised.

Overall, this was well written and fast paced. I needed to pay attention because tons of new information is given and revealed. New people were introduced and I hope to learn more about them in future books. So in the end I am happy and satisfied with how things ended.

But I cannot wait for the next release to read more about this great world Maggie Walsh have created.
