Corey returns to his on again, off again boyfriend, after hearing Kris has been attacked. This time he isn’t given a warm welcome. Instead his selfish wants may have damaged the relationship beyond repair.

Kris is never enough for his boyfriends. He tries, but the last one thanked him by taking a knife to him. When Corey returns, trust is gone and frustration abounds.

Meeting Kris and Corey has made Storm’s life complete. He’s more than willing to help them progress to forgiving each other and growing into a solid unit with him. But a firebug’s in town. Kris suspects it’s one of Corey’s exes, but the signs point elsewhere. As the three burn up the sheets, someone’s burning up the city.

And of course Ralph’s watching everything.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Granite County 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 love the way Bellann 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 one of my favorite authors.

I came across Bellann’s books about a year ago and I was fascinated with the world she brought out and the characters. It didn’t take long before she became one of my top five favorite authors and I automatically buy her books. This story was no different and the bunny made it even better.

Kris had been kidnapped and tortured by an evil sadistic asshat. As he was in the hospital healing, Corey came home. Kris had been hurt when Corey had left him, never understanding why he needed to. Now he was back and Kris was terrified.

Corey had always needed something that Kris alone could not give him. He however knew that he loved Kris. So when he found out what had happened to Kris, he came running back. The problem was, Kris was pissed at him. Things were not going to get better that is for sure. Doing a delivery for Kris, ends up with Corey in danger and Storm saving his ass.

Storm had at one time been in the military, and then became a mercenary with his friends. He was damn good at it, but they all had known it was time to retire. Now he had come to Granite to watch a friend get married. He might have found a town which would be perfect for him. When he saved Corey from dying in a fire and meeting Kris he knew he was staying for good.

However he had not expected the stubborn little brats to fight all the time. It was time for a strong Dominate to put a hand to their ass that is for sure. To top it off someone seemed to want him and Corey to die. He had to keep his men safe and also to show them that they were loved.

I had a blast reading this story. 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 mean what is better than two gorgeous men. Well in this book you get three sexy ones with hot sex, tender loving and some feisty arguments.

I can’t wait to read the next story.

Blurb: one story, 25 authors, infinite possibilities…

Quad McDaniel’s life changed forever the night he was attacked by a wolf. Now, he turns furry every full moon. Avoiding red meat and anything that makes him aggressive is his prime goal in life. But when his convertible breaks down in some Podunk town, becoming the beast within is no longer a choice. It’s instinctive.

Gypsy Govanivinch just wants to live a quiet life in Trinity Valley, running his roadhouse tavern. He doesn’t need an overly aggressive shifter coming into his town and messing with his peaceful little world, no matter how gorgeous the man looked.

Life never asked Quad or Gypsy what they wanted. It simply gave them what they needed, whether they agreed or not. Fate brought them together but it’s up to Quad and Gypsy to stay alive long enough to appreciate what they’ve been given. And when others work to prevent that, fighting together might be the only chance they have of surviving.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This was a wacky, crazy, and pretty damn good read. I have never read a book where each chapter is by a different author. But I must say they did a great job.

Quad is changed into a wolf shifter and abandoned by his maker. Now months later Quad is driving in his new car when it decides to die outside a little town called Trinity Valley. From there things just get weirder and weirder.

Gypsy is not human himself and is able to explain to Quad a little about shifters. But Gypsy has been hurt by shifters before and has a pretty big issue with them. But that doesn’t stop these two from mixing it up both in and out of bed. The chemistry is there from the start even when they don’t seem to like each other much.

For a book written by twenty-five different authors, there was a good flow in the story. It was fast paced and gave the needed information without dragging down the story with too much. The sex was steamy and very hot. The main characters were easy to like and personable.

A lot happens in a very short amount of time. There was tons of twist and turns going on throughout as Quad and Gypsy try to figure out what the hell is going on. There was some wicked planning going on by the bad guys.

This was a well written story by some of my favorite authors. It was entertaining, humorous, sexy, and wicked fun to read.

Review: Each book in The Men of the Crazy Angle Ranch collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Ryan is one of those guys that you absolutely love. He is so tender-hearted and very loyal to his friends. His problem is the fact that he is the type that would trip over air. It has cost him many boyfriends and jobs. His latest job fired him for many different reasons but he did manage to get toner everywhere. So with his father’s help he has a chance at a new job at the Crazy Angle Ranch. I love the name of the ranch, but then again my mind goes pretty much to the gutter every time I look at it. Ryan has a gift with animals from what I read. He also gets the hot for the vet that lives there. Hot damn Ryan might have found the perfect man for him.

Callum is a definite Dom in his relationships but he does have rules. His last boyfriend wouldn’t take no and ended up ending it. His boss and friends have told him that he needs to take a breather, however he just doesn’t know how to slow down. That is until he takes one look at Ryan. Now all he has to do is to keep Ryan safe and to keep his ex from Ryan.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in Rescue For Hire 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 romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Bellann 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 Bellann.

There is something about the way that Bellann 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 the ones they love with all that they have. I had a blast reading this story.

I think this story was not only one the best stories I have read in a while but it was also more heart breaking. I could never imagine losing my entire family to a fluke explosion. Brad and his wife were divorcing but they were close to being good friends while doing it. He had said good-bye to her and hugs his kids, headed to work when their house blew up.

It had caused him to wreck and although he didn’t remember most of it, he felt it all in his heart and soul. His bitch of a mother was trying to ruin his life once more and he realized that he needed to stand up to her, but he couldn’t. Running, he found a life that included a gorgeous man.

Rock was heading down to take the tracker position that Rescue for Hire needed. What he had not expected was to find one gorgeous man whose heart needed healing. He knew he was the man for him and set out to prove it.
Brad’s mother is one mother that I would love to see knocked the hell out. She is one evil bitch as far as I am concerned.

Alex is also injured by a bullet and knows that his chances of walking are slim. It is up to his lover to keep his spirits up. It shows how much this team loves each other, because when one is hurt they all show up to support him.Now Brad is part of this amazing family. This story has some pretty amazing little twist that you will love.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the other’s in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Bellann 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 just 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, and loving.

Reviewer: Lisa
Review: This is part of the Granite County series and they need to be read in order. Each story is about a new romantic couple.

The only thing better than two men in love is three men in love. Talk about a hot and tempting story. Bellann has an amazing way of giving you a story that will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, biting your lip, bouncing and turned the hell on. I love the way you can just feel the heat and love that these men have for each other.

Job wanted to be with Dean. However, he had fears of the control, bondage, and sexual desires that the sexy man wants from him. He feared what his family would say if they found out. He knew when he told Dean off and said some nasty stuff to him that he would have to kiss ass. He also knew that Dean had turned to Creed afterwards. He was also turned the hell on by Creed. Now his mind was definitely reeling from it all.

Dean was hurt by Job’s words and when he needed someone to comfort him, he turned to Creed. He found himself falling for the gorgeous man, but missed Job. Then after a night of hot sex Creed and Dean found themselves captured and tortured. When he woke up after they were rescued, he found Job tending to them. He wasn’t too sure what was to happen, but when Job told them both that he wanted what Dean had suggested and that he also wanted Creed they had many things to talk about.

Now all they have to do is to capture the ones that wanted them dead and keep each other safe. It has more of a serious tone to it, but there is just a hint of humor in it. The sex between them is spicy, kinky, possessive, and extremely hot. This series is actually branched off of Rescue For Hire series. I would suggest starting with that series. It will tell you more about each character that will appear in each story and keep you from getting confused or frustrated. And let me tell you that each story is just as hot as the others.

I had a blast reading this amazing story and look forward to reading many more books by this author. It is a fascinating story that will have you wanting to hear more. You can tell when an author puts her heart into what she is writing and this is one of them. The amount of danger that these men go through has your breath catching and hoping for the best. It gave me all that I could possibly want in a story and so much more. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

In fact when it comes to Bellann’s books I am always sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one to come out. Anticipation is part of my book world it would seem.

I would recommend reading this book. It will give you gorgeous men with guns, sexy little doctors, excitement, suspense, action, hot sex, and dangerous situations. Trust me you will love reading this book.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is part of the Lubirea Mai series and they should be read in order. Each story focuses on a new romantic couple. For me it gives me an insight into the characters and their lives. I get a crack out of the fact in the paranormal world that a man can have the children. Talk about paybacks for women. When a story has such a serious tone to it but you can see the hints of humor in it, then the book is perfect for me. I am not one for serious subjects I can tell you that. I want a book that I can enjoy and have fun with.

This story was that with me.

Simon is an over bearing lion with an attitude that needs an adjustment. He is a total ass to pretty much everyone. However if one does look deeper then they know that it is just the exact opposite. He had the talk with his father at the age of ten about his duties as a true lion, and then shipped to the council for training for two years. He had though that this meant that his mate should be another true lion, not a human. He saw humans as weak creatures. Then he found out that his mate was human.

Jessie has been abducted by sexy man, kissed by sexy man and come to the conclusion that said sexy man is a total ass. However, he had learned after they separated that he could feel the pain that Simon was in. Then yet again, he has been abducted, but this time by Simon’s brother. Things had better start looking up because he was about to skin his mate.

Once Simon realizes how mates are supposing to be treated and to trust fate, he knows now that he has some serious kissing up to his mate to do. I got a kick out of this book. I love the way they don’t just meet, kiss, and straight to love and sex. They actually had to fight to get it right. It seems to me that it would make their mating so much stronger in the end. This was a blast to read and I look forward to the next book. It caught my attention with the first paragraph and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me all that I needed in a book and I would recommend reading it.

5 of hearts logo red on black smallReview: This is the second book to this series and they need to be read in order. Each story gives you a new romantic couple. I had a blast reading this story. The way it is written feels like you are still going through the stages of freedom that book one gives you. The way it just flows off the pages and into your mind is amazing. I loved that it captured my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. This story gave me everything I could want in a story.

Riley and Katherine had been friends for a very long time, enough time for Katherine to trust him with her secret. Not only her secret but also the rules that they have after a shifter reaches five hundred years. They are to turn their selves in for one week to mate with another lion. So Riley had left his home and job to run away with Katherine to keep her from having to go to that pain again. The problem was he had not expected to be tackled by a lion.

Samuel is one of the council agent’s that are sent after those who cause problems. Riley hated the council for what they put the lions through. However, the bigger surprise was that they were mates and not just any typical mate. But a mate that was lubirea mai and of course this has an even bigger surprise for Riley. He can have a child.

Talk about a shock. Another problem was that the leader of the lions and Samuels brother, Simon was not happy about Samuel being mated to a human. So he sends him on a quest to bring in a shifter for kidnapping. It ended badly, and Simon was a complete ass and the punishment was to be given out. All this because Samuel mated a human.

I had a blast reading this and cannot wait to read the next story. It gave me sexy shifters, feisty human mates, mates that can get pregnant, a surprise ending for Riley, excitement, a touch of danger and some amazing sex. I would recommend reading this book, especially if you love all of that and so much more. I loved it and cannot wait to check out the rest of Bellann’s books.

Blurb: County Sheriff Steve Titan is a hard, dominating man who demands submission and rules. He’s been watching Haley Kenyon for months and even though he is seventeen years older, he has decided to claim the little beauty as his own.

Haley grew up in an abusive drug den, but worked hard to graduate college early and lands a job teaching four-year-olds. He may be small, but he has kicked many men to the curb when they couldn’t give him what he needs in the bedroom and a relationship.

Now that he has gained the sheriff’s attention, can the big guy handle an over the top snarky mouth and attitude? Can Haley handle the spankings when he pushes too far? Oh, then there are the whole issues of dirty cops, an old shed everyone is interested in, and the fact that Haley refuses to sleep in a bed.

Review: This is the first book in this series and I must tell you that it was amazing. Now the story is actually started with another series written by Bellann Summers.Granite County is actually a branch off of Rescue For Hire. Each character in the future series was actually met in Rescue For Hire. I loved this book and cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I love the fact that when you read Bellann’s stories you can tell that she wrote with her heart added into each story. I loved the characters and what they fought for.

Haley had grown up in a home that was full of hatred, physical and emotional abuse. However Haley and his cousin had survived, but were still being hurt by the family that should have loved them. His uncle, family and several of the law enforcement were dealing drugs. There were many that were trying to stop it and keep Haley safe but there was one particular man who went out of his way to show him even more. Although the sheriff went to extremes to do so.

Steve had been watching Haley for some time and wanted the little man. He was quite a bit older than the sexy young man, but he knew what he wanted. Now all he had to do is to keep him safe. He loved the fact that Haley was the perfect way he always wanted in bed. He was submissive yet very vocal and feisty. He did not want a true submissive, but one that would give him hell throughout his life.

I loved this story and can’t wait to read the next one. It gave me everything I could want in a story. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. If you love alpha men, feisty lovers, excitement, danger, angst and spankings then this will be the story for you.

I would recommend reading this story. Trust me you are going to love it.
