Review: This was an amazing story. Each book in the Venomous Mates Series focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order. It keeps me from getting a bit lost in the stories and gives me an insight in to their world. A world that captured my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I love the way each character just mixes with the others. How fast they are to defend what is theirs and what they believe.
There are many books out there with so many different types of shifters, but this one is has a quite a bit of a twist. I love the way there are snakes, spiders, ants, and scorpions. Deadly creatures, even more dangerous since the toxic’s are now air born. Many have been changed physically from the toxins. Boone has known from the moment he set his eyes on the anti-venom that they were mates. Now getting Julius to trust him and let him in might be the hardest part of it all. He finally lets him know about his past and how the reason he sticks so close is because of a previous danger. He is letting Julius get to know him and his heart.
Julius is an anti-venom, where as Boone is a venom. Boone is a spider and at first he creeped him out quite a bit. However, he is realizing he is falling for the crazy spider. Now if they can come out of the battle’s that seem to keep on hitting alive, then maybe they can find a life for them to have. A life that includes the love they have for each other.
This story has a touch of humor to it even though I am not sure that was what Jackie was intending. I love the way it came off to me though. The only thing I wish was it was longer. It just flows off the pages. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading all the way to the end. I loved it and cannot wait to read book four. It gave me everything I could ask for in a story. It gave me sexy men, shifters, excitement, dangerous situation, deadly enemies, and twists to the story. It gave me that and so much more. I would recommend reading it, you won’t be disappointed.
