Blurb: Nate is caught between two dangerously hot vampires who can compel people to do whatever they want and a ruthless necromancer who wants Nate for all the wrong reasons—and that’s only the start of his problems.

Escort Nate prides himself on two things: his ability to please his clients and his normality – living in the monster capital of the world, ordinary is rare. Hunter, a darkly charming vampire with more charisma than is good for him, decides Nate is just what he needs. Nate’s sympathetic nature and skill in the bedroom are put to the ultimate test. But Hunter wants Nate for someone else – his brother, Ben. Nate is immediately attracted by the control with which Ben holds his sensitive nature in force. Too afraid of becoming a monster to allow himself to feel, Ben struggles to resist Nate’s generosity of emotion. As a vindictive necromancer makes Ben his target of revenge, Nate discovers that making people feel good doesn’t compare to making Ben feel. As Nate’s normal world crumbles around him, and he desperately searches for a way to save Ben, Nate is unable to escape becoming the necromancer’s latest victim.

But Nate’s death is only the beginning. Coming back to life in the bathroom of Gunn, a Department Seven officer who hates the vampire family that Ben and Hunter belong to, Nate doesn’t know who to trust or even what he is. As the necromancer’s trap pulls tighter around himself and Ben, Nate is forced to let go of normal and embrace powers he doesn’t fully understand. In defiance of Ben’s vampire sire and hunted by Department Seven, Nate and Ben finally learn to trust and rely on each other. But when the necromancer succeeds in capturing Ben, Nate alone can come to his rescue.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This story did not turn out at all like I had thought it would. There was more detail to it than I thought was needed and to slow paced for me. For such a long story, I felt like I was drowning in details. I love a good paranormal, but this came off more fantasy then anything. I could not really get into the characters as I should have. It felt a bit off to me.

Nate is an escort and has come to the attention of a very powerful vampire. However the attention was not what caught my eye, it was the fact that Hunter wanted Nate to be a brother. Which is strange in itself. Now Ben had been turned by Hunter about a year ago, and now here is Nate to help them celebrate. Ben comes off a bit, well off. He is cold in a way that one would not expect, but he doesn’t really seem that happy about Nate. Especially since Nate is immune to him. Then you add in a jealous necromancer, and let’s just say it is about to get all interesting to say the least.

I hate to say that I basically had to rush through this and skimmed most of it. It didn’t really catch my attention like it should have. I also did not really care for the sex business at all, which was a downside for me. Although the way this author wrote it was a bit better than most. There really wasn’t any shame or regret shown, so that was a nice change for me.

I enjoyed the mystery that this story seemed to have going on inside of it. One would sit on the edge of their seats trying to figure it out, was a great plus. I loved the fresh new touch to the paranormal and fantasy world that this author has created, plus it was very quirky in away. So it took a few chapters to get to the point that my attention was captured but I am afraid that it just came too late for me. The ritualistic killings were a bit strange, but for this type of story it rocked. It was not written in a dark tone so that was a major hit for me, because I really can’t get into gross deaths.

I am not really sure if I will read the next book, but since this is the first in a new series I will just wait and see. For now I will just say that this book really wasn’t for me.

Blurb: Zeki Janowitz has returned to his hometown of Wolf’s Paw to start his wizarding career. Unfortunately, Wolf’s Paw, a werewolf refuge, follows centuries of tradition and shuns human magic and a very human Zeki. He knows he’s in for a struggle, but a part of him has always belonged in the mountain town, or rather belonged to Theo Greenleaf. Years away at school haven’t lessened Zeki’s crush on the quiet werewolf. When town gossip informs him Theo still suffers from his mate’s rejection and does not date, it does little to ease Zeki’s embarrassing feelings. He decides now’s the time to get the man he’s always wanted.

Werewolves usually don’t recover from losing their mates, and Theo barely pulled through by focusing on his love of baking. It’s a daily struggle, and Zeki’s return to Wolf’s Paw shatters his peace. Theo doesn’t know what to think when Zeki attempts to woo him, talking about his wizarding business and settling in town for good. It’s like Zeki doesn’t have a clue how his words years before left Theo a shell of a werewolf.

Beginners in love, Theo and Zeki must seduce each other with a bit of heavenly baking and magic.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: If you like paranormal romances – and I know that most of us that do will devour just about anything with wolves and mates as long as there is a sign for a HEA and a lot of loving – then this is one of those impulse reads (audios) that are just wonderful to come across. Yes, it is part of a series, but you needn’t have read the previous books, these works as a standalone. However, with hints of the next book in the series I’m seriously looking forward to the next installment.

A Beginner’s Guide to Wooing Your Mate is aptly named because the MCs are so inexperienced when it comes to love they really are beginners. Their mating bond kicked in too early in life that they never were able to start anything – what with teenage hormones and emotions in the way. Zeki and Theo are strong characters and that is why life happened the way it did for both of them. Zeki may be a human in a world where shifters are superior, but he is also a wizard and therefore capable of channeling magic, even though that is also seen as second best in a world where men can change into animals.

The only thing that really bugged me about this book is that the pack treat Zeki shitty to begin with when what happened between him and Theo was a misunderstanding between two teenagers still in high school. Yes, Theo has suffered but he is stronger as a result but the main theme in this book is that we always see things differently as children as we do when we’re adults.

As for the narration, really well done and on point, I’ve heard Robert Nieman in the past but I don’t think I’ve ever been as fully on board with his narration as I was during this book.

Half

by

Eli Lang

Living between worlds has never been comfortable, but it’s where I’ve always fit: between human and fey, illness and health, magic and reality.

I’ve spent the last six years looking for a cure for the nameless sickness eating me up. If I believed there was one out there, I would keep searching. But there isn’t, so I’ve come back home, where my past and present tangle. Come home to live . . . and to die.

But my father insists I meet Kin. He’s a healer, and determined to help, even though I’m not so hopeful anymore. But Kin isn’t what I expected, in any way. He sees me, not my illness. He reminds me of what it’s like to be alive. And I can’t help falling for him, even though I know it isn’t fair to either of us.

Kin thinks he has the cure I’ve been looking for, but it’s a cure that will change everything: me, my life, my heart. If I refuse, I could lose Kin. But if I take it, I might lose myself.

Blurb: Sebastian (Sen) Holt is an artist currently in New Orleans. He’s always been a wanderer, believing in fate and following signs to guide his destiny. Although he itches to pull up stakes, getting a painting into a gallery keeps him rooted. One morning his good friend calls him in desperate need of help with her cleaning business. Her regular cleaner flaked, she can’t lose her client, and there’s no one else.

The job is at a large and recently restored house—and the owner, Morgan Ballard, comes home unexpectedly. They are immediately drawn together, as if they know each other, but they’ve never met. As they grow closer, Morgan behaves like two people. Sometimes he’s friendly and casual, and other times intimate and demanding. Sen juggles his painting through bursts of vision-like inspiration, the cleaning job, and an unexpected commission—all while trying to unlock the growing mystery of the intense connection he feels to Morgan. He’s not sure which scares him more—the strangeness surrounding their growing bond or that he’s found someone to make him reconsider his lifelong wanderlust.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: A heart-warming story of two men, Sen and Morgan, who are two halves of a whole. When Sen, a painter, agrees to help a friend he meets the owner of the house, Morgan. From the start these two are immediately attracted to one another.

Things begin to look up for the both of them as time goes on but at the same time they realize they feel lost without the other when not around each other. I loved how everything came together and was explained before the story was over. It gave a better understanding as to exactly what going on.

I loved the interactions between Morgan and Sen. They seemed perfect together as the story progressed. The paranormal aspect added a wonderful mix to an already intriguing book. 

Great read.

Blurb: As prince of the Anzuni demon clan, Jerricho’s entire life has been planned for him. At twenty-five, he will become the crown prince of the Anzuni, marry a man chosen by his parents, and bear his husband’s children all without choice. If that wasn’t enough, he must remain a virgin until his wedding night. To do otherwise would spark an unimaginable scandal.

With only ten months until his twenty-fifth birthday, the walls close in on Jerry, and the realization that he will lose his small apartment, his job at the library, and his freedom hits hard. But that’s nothing compared to losing the man he loves. Rex is a smart and sexy construction foreman with a keen interest in demon “mythology.” When Jerry and Rex give in to spending one night together, their indiscretion can’t be kept secret for long. But that’s only the beginning of their problems.

Someone wants to harness the power of Jerry’s bloodline and his ability to conceive—someone with designs on horrifying experiments, sex slavery, and murder. Jerry and Rex are at the mercy of power-hungry sadists. With no one left to trust, they must fight for each other, their freedom—and their unborn child.

Review: So far I have loved every book I have read by Jake C. Wallace and this book was most certainly not a disappointment. This book was a fantastic addition to already great books by this author. It has everything a reader could want; romance, danger, mystery, action with quite a few twists and turns throughout for added intrigue.

Jerricho was stuck by tradition and I felt angry on his behalf that he couldn’t marry for love. It broke my heart at some scenes in the book that had to do with kidnapping and what happened to those individuals. I loved Jerry’s character. Rex is a sexy foreman and Jerricho’s boss. These two set the pages on fire with their passion for one another. These two grew so much that I was amazed with them by the end of the book.

It was great being introduced to a character and trying to figure out whether they were friend or foe to Jerricho and Rex. This story will have you on the edge of your seat and holding your breath at times awaiting the outcome. Fantastic and well written.

Absolutely loved this amazing story. Highly recommended.

US Marshal Jaeger Tripp is assigned to the Federal Witness Protection Program. The hurt and destruction he’s seen—along with protecting criminals who are only cooperating with the authorities to keep themselves out of jail—have left him with a bleak and jaded view of both life and people. His current assignment is Wren O’Riley, a computer wizard who witnessed a high-profile cartel hit.

To Jaeger, Wren is the same as any other job. He must protect him long enough to get him to testify at trial, and his personal feelings have no place in his work and must be set aside. But that’s easier said than done. On the run and fighting for their lives, Jaeger and Wren can’t help but grow closer. And Jaeger can’t help seeing beyond Wren’s nerdy exterior to a man who might be just what Jaeger needs to settle his soul and capture his heart—if they survive long enough to get that chance.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I have had the pleasure of reading many, many books over my years and have come to cherish quite a bit of them.  When I came across Charlie’s books, I started with the audible books first.  There was just something about listening to them, that I knew I had to grab the books and start reading them.  Now there are times that I feel like I have missed something big, but it never bothered me with these stories.

The characters are fully developed and let’s just say that if they were here I would definitely jump them.  Now I have my favorites but I will let you figure that out.  The world that this author has created is unique and very different then many I have read.  For that I appreciate something fresh to read.  Most of the time I hate stories that have lasted past three books but this one has all of our sexy characters showing up and telling their story so to speak.  

Dex had been kidnapped, killed, revived, visited his families grave and his adopted dad shot in the chest.  All this happened within two days, and Dex is fed up with it.  He doesn’t trust Sparks and knows she is up to something, guess we will have to wait and see what it is.  He is also now part Therian or should I say half and things are starting to show for it.  Oh and the big news, well guess you are going to have to read the book for that.  

This story is action packed, full of excitement and suspense, and let’s not forget our men and women are in danger once more.  I enjoyed reading this and cannot wait to read more about our sexy members of Destructive Delta.  Way to go Charlie, this book was a hit.  I would definitely recommend this series.

Love and trust made them soul mates, but destiny might have other plans.

Ever since Drake Carpenter fell in love with warlock Mason Blackmoor, his life has been one supernatural battle after another, but Drake doesn’t mind… much. To be with Mason and experience the magical connection they share, Drake would face entire hordes of vampyren, shifters, or fae—and he has. Luckily Drake is immune to magic, though no one can explain his natural ability to negate almost any enchantment. With Drake’s own family gone, Mason is all he has. So why is Drake experiencing disturbing dreams about Mason that terrify him?

A new threat looms on the horizon, and a revelation about Drake’s identity and the true origin of his bond with Mason shatters everything Drake believes. If Drake, Mason, and all of magic are to survive the coming Spell Fall, the most destructive curse in sorcery, Drake must deal with the truth and fight his way back to Mason—because their enemies are gaining strength, and they intend to reach the boy Drake loves first.

In the wake of several near-cataclysmic events, humanity created the Cure, a DNA-altering antidote to death by disease and old age.

These people are called the Estranged, hunted and shunned, safe only on the Island of Exile. It is here that Kaeva and Eddie meet—and where they set a prophecy in motion, quite possibly sealing their own demise, and even the end of Exile.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Vespar, an assassin for hire, takes on a job. He has struggled with his urge to kill. But upon meeting his target the feeling lessens. As he gets to know Marcolm he becomes infatuated with him to the point he cannot do what he was hired for. 

I really enjoyed this story. Vespar was intent and serious. I loved how well equipped he was in dealing with certain things that come up throughout the story. Marc was a little too trusting considering people were out to kill him. I felt considering who his dad was he would have been a bit more cautious. 

I loved the quick escapes and thinking Vespar did when confronted with danger. The main thing that threw me was the end. I did not understand how one could make the past different from what happened. Wouldn’t that mean that Marc and Vespar’s lives would have been different than what they were? 

Other than that I loved everything else. The romance, tension, adventure and mystery were awesome. This is a great read.
