Review: Each book in the Nehalem Pack collection features a new 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.  They are entertaining and have just the right mix of feelings in them. There is also quite a bit of danger or excitement in it as well. This one caught my attention and kept it all the way to the very end.  I love the mixture of characters that this story and the other ones have in it.  Will always keep you entertained.
Daniel lost his wife to an accident, or should I say his mate and it had devastated him.  He was left alone to raise his cutie pie daughter and he wasn’t doing a very good job at it.  He also needed some help, which with the help of his daughter came one very sexy man.  A man with a secret that could hurt them.  Also this man seemed to think that he was his mate.

Archer was a scientist and loved what he did.  That is until what he did was end up killing shifters from the poison he made.  Running sounded good, but you can only run so far.  To top it off he has found his mate and his mate had a daughter.    

I love the way this author puts together a story that not only draws you in but keeps you entertained as well. They have a serious tone to them, but there is a bit of humor floating around. I do get a kick out of the whole thing. I can’t wait to read the next book.

Review: Each book in the Nehalem 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. 

I got a kick out of the title for this story, but the cover was a bit boring.  Let’s just say that if I wasn’t a fan of quirky titles, and just went by what the cover looked like, I would have probably dismissed it.  Although the fox on the front was adorable.  Now that that is out of the way, let’s get to the story itself.

I haven’t read to many stories where dentist and dentistry are used.  It cracks me up each time and the characters are usually quirky.  However it also sounded to familiar to me.  However it did not take away from this story at all.  Reed is a human who has a shifter for a brother.  He is used to pack life and the way things move around.  In fact his big brother talked him into moving to Silver Creek right after graduating from dental school.  He just doesn’t expect a sexy little fox shifter.

Dane is a very good dental assistant, who just wants to get away from his family.  His dad was never around and his mother is a first class bitch.  Everything is about look and prestige whereas Dane is about normal living and peace.  He also does not believe in love, so when he finds his mate, well let’s just say sparks will fly.  

It is a fun filled and very quirky story that has its ups and downs.  I would have kicked his mother out a very long time ago.  I got a kick out of the guys and let’s just say there doesn’t really seem to be an alpha bone among them.  I liked the over protective big brother part.  Sometimes their way of life seems to be a lot calmer then the way real life is these days.  It would definitely be a world I would love to live in. 

I had fun with this story and I think you will too.

Review: Each book in the Nehalem 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. 

Now when I first started reading it, I was about to just ditch the whole book. There was something about the first few chapters that just about drove me nuts. Which told me that this was one story that was going to rock it. It has a serious tone to it, which one would expect but damn there is some good humor in it. To top it off, a man can get pregnant. Talk about paybacks. 

I love the characters that this author gives us. They are full of fire and passion, plus they are sexy to boot. I have fun reading about each one of them, but Wyatt is going to be my favorite, that is when he grows up. He is just a cutie, but he also has a special ability. He can turn a human into a wolf shifter and give them the ability to get pregnant. Which is exactly what he did to this poor human. He was protecting his uncle.

Dean is a scientist who wants to learn more about the shifters. So he has decided to leave his world behind and move to Silver Creek. He also had just broke up with his boyfriend, so he needed a fresh place to start over. I don’t think he expected to find his mate though.

Owen just wanted to protect his brother and nephew. They had special abilities that would make them perfect targets. He had been asked to work with the scientist that was coming to stay with them. That is until he finds out that this man was his mate. What is a virgin to do? 

I got a kick out of this whole story. I love the world that A.J. Jarrett created and the men she placed in it. This story caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could want in a story. Sexy shifters, crazy family, strange humans, excitement, adventure and danger all rolled in to one smoking hot book. 

I had a lot of fun reading this and would definitely recommend it. I can’t wait for the next book to come out.

Review: Each book in the Nehalem 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.

Cullen and Glenn had known each other since school. However it was not the best of times for Cullen. Glenn had tormented him, calling him names, hit him, and shoved him into lockers. It was easy to say that Cullen has always been scared of Glenn. Even after Glenn saved Cullen from a wild wolf shifter and was turned in to a wolf himself. Now Glenn was back and was trying to not only apologize but to show him that he had changed.

Glenn had known that he had been cruel to Cullen, but he also knew that he had wanted him since he was thirteen. He had just denied his feelings until now. Cullen was his mate and he had to show him that he had changed. He had to prove to him that he loved him.

I loved how the bully changed his ways and found love in the man he was mean to. I also loved the danger that showed up in the end of the book. I always did love a good romance that didn’t have the couple falling in love right from the start. I loved how they had to make it work.

Plus with this one it was fun with the family surprise. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it.

I can’t wait to read the next story.
