Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I have read one interactive story many years ago but I have to say this one is much better. You make Fayt’s, a half human/ half elf, decisions for him as instructed throughout the story. The prison is a dismal place that fills you with dread at every turn. The Warden is a dreadful man full of malice and evil at every turn. The atmosphere is spooky and dangerous as our MC tries to keep a low profile.

Though I was a little disturbed by the non-con I still enjoyed the story and where it took me. I will be reading it again and choosing different options to see where else the story ends besides the one I chose.

Fantastic read and highly recommended but I will warn you there are scenes of non-con depending on your choices.

Journalist Jessie Canning was on the phone when his cousin, Ben, was attacked. Fifteen minutes later, when Jessie arrived at Ben’s condo, his cousin was dead and the little evidence Jessie saw pointed at Ben’s employer, Senergine.

Now, while investigating Ben’s murder, Jessie is caught between people who would kill to protect their secrets and others who should be dead but aren’t, and who instead hunger for human flesh.

With life and death as close as a minute away, Jessie must work with his estranged lover, Mathew, to learn more about what’s happening…and if there’s any way to fight it.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: First off, I must say I don’t much care for stories that come off dark. I am also not a fan of dark fantasy, science fiction or thrillers. They tend to creep me out. However for some reason the blurb and title just popped out at me. So of course I was captured. I just had to start reading it. I am glad that I took the chance. Although it still kept me creeped out through it all.

If you’re into zombies, then this is probably a story for you. I did find some of it humorous though. Senergine thought they could kill cancer by using nannites. The problem was they mutated and when a person died, they seemed to come back as zombies.

Jessie had been asked by his cousin Ben to come over. He had not expected to come over and find out that Ben had been murdered. Also to find out the ones that died came back to life, well sort of. His relationship with Mathew had been strained. Their relationship had come to an end. However it was Mathew who came to him.

Mathew had worked for Senergine and had been upset when Jessie had not believed him about the nannites. However the fact that the dead were coming back to life, had Mathew changing his mind. He still loved his man and now he needed to find a way to save him.

I had a blast reading this story and look forward to reading more by this amazing author. It was still a bit creepy though.

I was quite surprised by it and would definitely recommend it to others.

Blurb: Raoul Marchand is the crown prince of Charisma, the infamous nightclub in Crescent Bay, renowned for its supernatural clientele. He has the pick of any and all men, but he cares for none. He uses them and throws them away again, and has done so for some twenty years, in the aftermath of a tragedy that robbed him of what he loved most in the world.

Alexx Jameson is an idealistic would-be reporter with the Crescent Bay Chronicle. Presented with an opportunity to write a story on the Marchands, he eagerly grasps the chance to be a real reporter. His friend, Chronicle receptionist Miller Fenwick, suggests they go to Charisma to do a little research. Alexx isn’t sure that’s such a great idea. After all, he’s still under age, being only twenty. No problem, Miller can fix that! Added bonus, there’s a full moon tonight.

When Alexx first encounters Raoul, it isn’t exactly in the way he dreamed of, and he’s sure he made a terrible first impression. But Fate throws them together under unforeseen circumstances, and the attraction between them can’t be denied.

Can Raoul let go of the past long enough to find his future with Alexx, or is he doomed to repeat past mistakes?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is a story of heartbreak and loss yet over time learning to live again with someone else and the coming to terms with the past and betrayal. I loved both Alexx and Raoul, wolf shifter. Raoul’s pain was so intense I could actually feel the loneliness and sadness with each word and detail. My heart broke for him at what he had gone through. I was hoping throughout the story he would be able to move forward eventually and find happiness again because that amount of pain is not good for anyone.

Alexx intrigued me as well as had me laughing when he went to Charisma, a nightclub owned by Raoul, with an older friend and a fake ID. I was sure he would not have been allowed to enter. He seemed sure of himself yet a little wary of things which were to be expected after what happened between Raoul and Alexx.

Alexx wants to be an investigative journalist but works in the mail room. The whispering on the wind not to mention the atmosphere of the book at times left a spooky impression which had me on the edge of my seat as the story progressed.

I was horrified to learn of what happened to Raoul’s previous lover Jamie and the reason why someone setup Raoul to be blamed for it. Such a senseless reason for killing someone if you ask me, but that is sometimes the way the story goes.

I really felt, all throughout the story, that I was witnessing things as they happened as there were fantastic details all throughout. Not to mention the emotional aspect had me going through all the emotions.

I would highly recommend this fantastic story to anyone. I absolutely loved it and am looking forward and very excited to read the next book in the series.

Blurb: Jerricho never expected to fall in love with Rex, the sexy, construction foreman, but he did.

Too bad tradition forbids Jerry from marrying for love. Prince of the clandestine Anzuni demon clan, a Baelso (bearer of children), and a virgin at twenty-four, tradition dictates that Jerry marry a man chosen for him. Despite his soul-deep love for Rex, Jerry has no choice but to follow through with his obligation as prince and marry someone he doesn’t love.

But Jerry isn’t prepared for his dominant, aggressive fiancé who is interested in marrying him only for the future title of king. Facing the reality that he will lose his virginity to the cold man, Jerry flees to Rex for one night of passion. When Jerry finds himself pregnant with Rex’s baby, however, the actions of his enraged fiancé release Jerry from his marriage obligation.

But just when Jerry believes he will marry for love, he and Rex are ripped away from life as they know it. Betrayals, kidnappings, cruel experiments, pregnant men, and the reappearance of the Anzuni’s greatest enemy force Jerry and Rex to fight for their lives, their love, and their unborn child…

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: Wow. Just Wow. I never actually know what I will get when I start reading a book by JC Wallace. But I know one thing, I am in for one hell of a ride. Damn did this deliver.

Jerricho, aka Jerry is twenty-four years old and still a virgin. Due to the traditions of his people he will be marrying the man of his parents’ choice in less than a year. A man he has not met nor loves. Not that it really matters. Except it does. Jerry has fallen in love with human Rex.

I felt for Jerry. He has spent years rebelling in any way he can. But he knows that the time will come when he will have little choice. Finally after meeting his “finance” for the first time, Jerry makes a decision to at least lose his virginity the way he wants and with someone he cares about. And that opens a whole hell of a lot trouble for everyone.

This book went all over the place, but in a good way. There is so much going on. So many twists and turns. There is a lot to keep up on. Like who to trust, who is a bad guy? Those Jerry and Rex thought they could trust turn out to be their enemy. Those they know are enemies turn out to be unwilling victims. Everything was topsy-turvy.

And the sex. Damn, I did not see that hotness coming. Jerry and Rex together were not what I was thinking they would be. No, they are a hell of a lot more steamy than that.

JC Wallace has created an interesting, unique, and intriguing world. The history of the Anzuni is a definite new spin on the demon myth.

The characters are well-developed, not just Jerry and Rex, but also the secondaries. For such a long book it was still very fast paced.

I found myself drawn into the story from the start and could not put it down until the very end. I needed to know what would happen next. Would they escape, would they be rescued, who would turn into an ally or enemy next? These were all things I would ask I was read.

Now I really hope there is a follow-up, because there are some situations left open-ended, that I would like to see explored and resolved.

This rollercoaster ride is well worth the read.

(Ash and Flames 01)
by

Ana J. Phoenix

Asher doesn’t like people, and people don’t like him. He’s cool with that—all he needs from them is sex, anyway. But when he’s suddenly thrust into a strange and dangerous world filled with magical creatures, joining forces with other people may just be the only way to survive.

It’s not all bad though—in this new world, he can turn into a fire-breathing dragon! Which would be awesome if it weren’t for José, the pesky fire elf sharing his fate whose goal in life seems to be to stop Asher from ever having fun. José is hot, though and Asher wants to get into his pants just as much as he wants to get home. But José is also blind, and Asher has no clue how to charm a man without relying on his looks.

Somehow, Asher has to show José that he’s more than a sex-obsessed pyromaniac with no filter between his brain and mouth. Preferably before either of them ends up dead. Civil war rages around them, and finding the way home isn’t going to be easy. And for Asher, getting there in one piece, and with his heart intact, might just prove impossible.

REVIEWER: Prime
REVIEW: Amadeo is the ringmaster of Cirque Caprice. Jon is described as head of security, but Some people may think, like me, that means Jon is like the Cirque’s personal cop/security guard, but he is more what I would call the occupational health and safety officer and staff security rolled into one. I say OH&S officer because Jon is busy pissing Amadeo off by not clearing the safety procedures for the new stage set up. Because of this, Amadeo thinks Jon is a menace and yet at the same time he has the niggling suspicion that Jon is familiar.

I liked this story a lot. I have to admire the fact that Jon really knows how to hold a grudge despite the fact I want to kick him. Amadeo doesn’t use his powers to influence people without permission so I was feeling sorry for the poor guy in a number of places. I found the thread of where Jon flagging Amadeo’s background checks has set some bad things in motion against Amadeo a bit pointless.

Regardless, it helped Jon get over himself (give him the kick I wanted to give), so in the end things worked out as they were meant to between Amadeo and Jon.

Blurb: Gamer Elijah Burrows has rather seamlessly taken over the life of his game character, Elian Surgis, in the world of Timiria. Alongside his lover, the lupine mage Sarin Eckhert, Elijah leads survivors of Sarin’s mystical order through the wilds of the province of Tasmorum. They manage to stay just one step ahead of Timiria’s monarch, King Mirov, who seeks to destroy every magic-wielding soul connected to the Labyrinthine Order.

From encounters with a mysterious group of traders on the road, to a revelation of epic proportions, it’s a miracle Elijah has any time to explore his relationship with Sarin. Then Fate throws a wrench into the mix: the appearance of another “traveler” — another gamer stuck in the game world Elijah now calls home. But this particular gamer has ulterior motives that have nothing to do with the Order’s survival.

Review: He was now getting use to this new world and his lover Sarin. Sarin was a lupine mage and he was helping Elijah protect and lead the survivors to a safe place. They came across a woman pretending to not only be a captured wife but a servant. In fact, she was indeed royalty. They were trying to get the end of Mirov out of the way. He was an evil lord that wanted magic-wielding souls.

Sarin and Elija have very little time exploring their lives together. Elijac was also Elian a surprising twist. Sarin and Elian had been lovers for a while. Sarin had seen something in him that made him want to release him from the prison he set in and love him for life. Now he was here with Elija/Elian in more than just love, but protection and survival. The twist to this story was another gamer had found his way into their lives. Except he had chosen to work for Mirov. A gamer that has ulterior motives that might just get them all killed.

This story was a blast to read and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next story. I love the way it just comes together. I also love Elija and Sarin. They are so sexy and protective of each other. They are in love and are just trying to survive and keep their friends safe. They are trying to get rid of evil and give the world back to those who intend goodness.

I would recommend reading this story if you love dark fantasy, paranormal, magical beings, earthlings that get caught in a world that they created, excitement, adventure and suspense, danger coming at them all and hot sex.

Blurb: From the moment he sees a photograph of Dalton Manor, a 17th-Century estate located in the picturesque English countryside, Joel Howard knows he must stay there while on vacation, in spite of the lack of nightly distraction to be had in London’s gay village.

After arriving in England with his friend Shelley, Joel immediately arranges to visit the grand estate, and during a tour, he sets eyes on the portrait of the handsome Patrice Dumont and his lovely young bride, Rosalie, the owners of the manor three hundred years ago.

Joel cannot explain the emotion he feels as he stares at the portrait, or his particular obsession with an ash tree he views on the property later that night. He also can’t explain why the ancient estate seems to talk to him, literally, or why the ghostly voice coming from inside the walls keeps calling him by the name of Andre.

As the moments tick by, Joel comes ever closer to the edge of danger and soon learns the answers to his questions…in every horrifying detail…

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A beautifully written story of a love so strong not even death could break it. Patrice Dumont married a woman at their families insistence. A few years into the marriage he falls in love with a gypsy named Andre. Unfortunately, his wife Rosalie, who is a powerful witch, finds out and has Andre hung. Stricken with grief Patrice tells his wife he’ll never love her. She curses Patrice and he remains buried underground for hundreds of years until Joel sets him free.

I was appalled at what lengths Rosalie went to in order to keep Patrice hers. She seemed a little demented to me in thinking she’d get Patrice to love her if she did away with Andre. Not to mention the curse she put on Patrice.

Joel started hearing and seeing things as soon as he arrived at Dalton Manor. I was in awe at the breathtaking details of the manor as well as Joel be able to see different things that had happened in the past. Hot and passionate sex added a spicy element. Great read.

Review: This is one of the books for the Bennet Bay series. It is a pretty good book. It comes off really dark fantasy type though. I wasn’t to sure what to think about it though. It seemed old world to me.

Dieter wants love and family. When his uncle passes away he goes down to the old farm to look around and say goodbye, but in reality, he is just left with more questions. He goes down there and meets up with his brother to discuss what they should do. However, his brother shocks him with his attitude and then even more when he leaves him there alone. When one of his best friends, Innes come down to spend the time with him and help him he is appreciative of the help. But it just gets even stranger for him. It would seem that the little box he had assumed was just an urn was in fact a soul catcher with magic surrounding it. His friend is a witch and gets a bit scared from it. What surprises him was when Innes tells him not to get any of his sperm into the box that holds the soul catcher and the ashes of Borris. A drinker who can only survive on the orgasm and sperm of men. The love of the Dieter’s uncle. Dieter is just about as lost as one can be.

Back in the time when the Nazi’s were in power is where the story truly begins. Dieter’s uncle, Wolfgang was thirteen years old and was in the Nazi camp. Most people remember that the Nazi’s were into the paranormal world and did experiments on people. When they came across someone who could only survive on sperm, they found a way to make his pain even worse. When Boris was not fed, he would go into a blood lust and would kill those around him. However, Wolfgang was the only one who truly saw Boris and not a monster. They had fallen in love. The Nazi’s were going to kill Boris in front of Wolfgang and that would destroy him. He had found away to keep his soul alive. Then many years later after Wolfgang’s death, Dieter comes home for the funeral. Finds the box and tells his best friend. Innes is a witch and knew what the box was, so in a fit of frustration tells Dieter not to get his sperm in it. Talk about a fantastic twist.

Dieter isn’t to sure about his friends and doesn’t have a clue about the paranormal stuff that seems to be coming around. Witches, faeries, bears, dragons and a very determined fag hag are only parts of the surprises coming around. And all he thinks about is the fact that he is just a restaurant owner who lost his uncle. So despite Innes talk about sperm and the box, he chooses not to listen. And Boris is brought back. Cursed he is still in the body of a nineteen year-old. They knew that they had to figure out how to help Boris.

When I heard this title I thought paranormal for sure, but it also comes off kind of different. The box that had held Boris’s spirit had a saying on it, to dust and from dust. Dark love grows from the seed planted under the full moon. Now when you get this story your thinking just about the paranormal parts to it, but it shows you something that many people still think is true. The Dark Love is in fact the love between two men.

It is the first time that I have heard that the love between two men was dark love, but it makes sense that some people thought that. I never really understood it though. I can’t help but think that these people need to see that this love is in fact very special. With this book, you get the feeling of the love these men have for each other. I love how Dieter meets Yanko. Their eyes meet their attraction to each other strong. Yanko is there for it all and Dieter finally realizes he loves this man more than anything in this world. He would give up everything to keep his lover safe.

I would recommend this book to everyone. It gives you everything that you can ever want. I love the dark fantasy touch, the different types of paranormal creatures, the love of Dieter and Yanko, and the way that everyone in this story is a family. A family not of blood but of love and choice. It is an amazing story and I cannot wait to read more from this author.

Devon McCormack - Clipped _Cover1

Clipped 

by

Devon McCormack

Blurb

Though mortals have been convinced that God cares about their souls, nothing could be further from the truth. He created the world as a gift for his lover, Satan. But when Satan left him, he decided to end what he saw as his most grotesque creation.

Satan and his army of demons are man’s only hope…

The demon Kinzer and his lover, Janka, have been sent by Satan to spy on The Raze, a gang of rogue demons who are working with God to bring about Armageddon. When someone exposes their true allegiances, The Raze clips Kinzer’s wings and murders Janka. Kinzer manages to escape. He tracks down Satan’s allies to warn them about a mole in their midst when he learns that they’ve located the Antichrist—a powerful weapon that could prevent the apocalypse. Now, he’s on a mission to protect the Antichrist and avenge his lover’s death.

Devon McCormack - Clipped _Cover

Excerpt

Dedrus scanned Kinzer’s body, admiring his massive biceps, his brown eyes, and his black waves of hair. Even with the wounds and tears that still tainted his face, he was beautiful. Dedrus wanted to press him back against the cushion, rip off his clothes, and provide him with the ease he deserved. But no! He was just wanting it for himself, and he was pretending that it was to serve Kinzer’s pain.

“I loved him so much.” The words cracked through Kinzer’s lips. His cheeks and forehead shivered. Tears filled his eyes. “I know we had so much time, but it wasn’t enough.”

The sting in Dedrus’s chest intensified. His cheeks flashed red as anger washed over him—anger that he loathed because it made him feel like a terrible, selfish creature.

He set his hand on Kinzer’s back, his palm stroking softly across the blue fabric of his polo. He wanted to say, “You’ll find love again.” He couldn’t, because he knew he’d really be saying, “Please find love in me.” He thought of saying, “Everything will be alright.” No. He couldn’t make that kind of promise. “It’ll take time,” felt appropriate, and yet, as an immortal, Dedrus never perceived time as a generous gift as much as a twisted, agonizing punishment.

“I wish I could think of something right to say about this,” Dedrus said, “but I can’t. I know how much you loved him, and I know how much he loved you, and I can’t imagine how hard this is going to be for you. But I’m here. As your friend. I don’t know if that means much, but I know the feeling of having something so perfect and wonderful torn from you.”

Kinzer’s gaze met his. His eyes were sad.

Does he know what I’m talking about?

“Tell me you’ve found someone,” Kinzer said.

“Of course,” he lied. “I’m just being overdramatic.”

“I figured as much. Considering where you work, I’m sure you get a lot of offers.”

It was true, but not the way Kinzer was suggesting. There were nights when Treycore dragged some pathetic mortal back to ease Dedrus’s pain. Those nights were the loneliest. Though he could bring himself to climax, it was an empty relief that just stirred the cruel memories of those moments filled with so much more.

Dedrus hugged him again. “Let’s get to bed,” he said. “You need some sleep.”

Kinzer nodded.

“We have plenty to sort through tomorrow. You can have my room. I’ll just sleep here.”

Dedrus released him.

Kinzer picked the sword up off his lap and stood. He reached his hand out. “Come on. It won’t be the first time we’ve shared a bed.”

The upward curl of his lip let Dedrus know that Kinzer was more than interested.

Dedrus’s dick swelled. “I don’t think I can.” He wanted Kinzer so bad, and if he put himself in that position, he was sure that he wouldn’t be able to resist making a move—especially if Kinzer initiated something.

“I’d rather not disrespect you like that,” Dedrus said.

Kinzer’s hand fell, bouncing against his jeans. His head drooped.

“Then I guess I’ll see you tomorrow.”

Dedrus smiled. “‘Night, Kinzer.”

Kinzer knelt, offering a light peck on Dedrus’s lips.

Don’t tease me with a taste!

“Up the stairs, first room on the right.”

Kinzer walked up the stairs, headed down the hall, and slipped into Dedrus’s bedroom.

Dedrus had hoped that Kinzer’s exit would provide some relief.

It didn’t.

He ached for him. His thoughts dwelled on Kinzer’s lips tickling his nipples, his gaze appreciating his body, his tongue delighting in his body’s grooves. He wanted to run upstairs and throw his arms around him, to hold him for the night, and tell him that no matter what happened he’d be there for him. He wanted more than that, but he wouldn’t press his friend. He wouldn’t dare cross that line…even if Kinzer insisted.

Spreading his limbs across the couch, he rested his head on a lace pillow at the end and rolled so that he was facing the cushions.

He closed his eyes.

A few moments passed before something pressed against his ass.

He flipped over and hopped to his feet, ready for a fight.

Kinzer stood before him, holding his hands out, as if showing a cop that he was unarmed. “Whoa, cowboy. Chill the fuck out.”

“Sorry.” Every hair on Dedrus’s immortal body stood on end. “You freaked the shit out of me. Did you need something? Another cover? Pillows?”

Kinzer wiggled his thumb behind the waistband in Dedrus’s khakis.

“Yeah. I need something.” He pulled their pelvises together.

His hot breath rushed across Dedrus’s lips, settling in the bristles across his cheeks. The warmth combined with a rush of blood that surged to his face and made him feel like his cheeks were about to catch on fire.

Kinzer pressed his lips against Dedrus’s.

Amidst the creases in Kinzer’s lips, Dedrus felt the smooth, subtle dip where Kinzer’s cut was healing.

He trailed his palm over the rough fabric of Kinzer’s polo. As he reached the smooth flesh of his neck, curly black hairs pricked his fingertips.

Kinzer opened his mouth wide. Dedrus eagerly reciprocated, tilting his head and allowing their lips to seal together. A swirling sensation gathered at the back of his spine and rushed to the crown of his skull.

Guilt nagged at his thoughts. He couldn’t do this. Kinzer didn’t really want him. He was just vulnerable and ached for a physical distraction from his grief. It would be wrong to take advantage while he was still recovering from Janka’s death.

Kinzer’s tongue flicked his.

He wanted Kinzer so bad, but not like that. Pressing his hand against the dip between the bulbous, jagged pecs before him, he broke their sealed kiss.

“What?” Kinzer rested his hands on either of Dedrus’s hips.

“This wouldn’t be right. I don’t want to disrespect you.”

“I know. But I want you to.”

Kinzer wrapped both arms around Dedrus. Spinning them around, he pushed Dedrus back against a painting that hung from the wall.

Kinzer’s eyes glistened with that gleam—the one that was so familiar to Dedrus.

Dedrus couldn’t control himself. His lips returned to their passionate embrace. His fingers found their way under Kinzer’s shirt, feeling about fervently, savoring the dips in his torso.

Review: Kinzer awakes to find himself chained in the mortal world, his wings removed and his lover dead and his only hope is to escape and warn Satan’s allies that a mole has leaked their location to The Raze. Kid lived on the street after running away from an abusive home life and then was taken off the streets and plunged into the world of sex trafficking, the only thing he dreams of now is freedom. The two are thrown together as they make an escape and Kid is thrown into a war between God and Satan.

This is a very dark erotic story that throws good and evil on its head. God wants to destroy the world, a world he created for his lover Satan, because Satan left him and now it is up to Satan and his followers to stop the destruction of humanity. The Raze is a group of Fallen angels who are trying to get back into God’s good graces and to do that they are planning the destruction of humanity. Kinzer is one of the Fallen sent in to spy on the Raze for Satan, but when he and his lover are discovered Kinzer has to turn to the angel who once broke his heart.

This is a great storyline that has good and evil, danger and escapes, blood and violence and pain filled sex, and terrible betrayal. It is darkly erotic and weaves a tale that is dark from the onset. We meet many characters in this story, some good, some evil and some innocent but all of them know pain in one form or the other whether it is physical pain or emotional pain. This isn’t the story to read if you want happy ever afters or a sweet romance, it’s the story to read when you want dark and dangerous, pain and pleasure jumbled together so it teases the dark reaches of your soul.

Following along after Kinzer or Kid we are plunged into a world where they both have tortured souls, the story pulls around both of them leading you into darker territory and you can’t see any happiness on the horizon. This is a really good storyline that is far from finished, there is nothing that has been resolved except Kinzer discovers the truth of his capture and we are plunged further into the depths of evil that The Raze flourish in.  

If you are looking for a blossoming relationship then there are hints of one but it is far from pretty. There was a slight hope of a rekindling romance that started in punishment and violence but the muses deemed it too easy and leave us feeling sore, now there is a glimmer of vengeance on the horizon but stopping The Raze isn’t going to be easy. Now while I did like this story and thought the storyline was good I really did find all the sex to be a bit too violent for my taste, and I mean all the sex, there isn’t one touch that doesn’t lead to pain being mixed in and while I do like a bit of pain tinged sex there was just a bit too much for me to truly enjoy.

I recommend this to those who love dark sex, dark erotica, dark fantasy and violence, betrayal and hopes dashed, a story that pulls you in even as you want to hit the breaks for a bit and a great storyline that is far from over.

Review: Wow, this book is something else. It was amazing how they made the whole book flow just perfect. It had the right amount of danger, excitement, and adventure. The way they can make the whole story magical.

 

Angel was a NFL star quarterback who had been injured during one game made his home in Angel Falls. He was genuine, gentle, kind and sort of a recluse. He finds an injured man who had wings and decides to bring him home. Klintic is a fae warrior prince that got betrayed by his father and kicked out of his realm. He is strong and powerful with lots of magical gifts. He has met his mate in this human who has done everything to help him. The sex is out of this world all hot and sensuous. You can’t help but fall for these two men.

 

I admit this book made me wonder about all sorts of things, but I absolutely loved it. It is divided into two stories so you have to read the next book to get the full amount of laughter and fun. I laughed so hard that I wasn’t really sure I would stop. It showed what happens when people get betrayed by those claiming they loved them. It shows the abilities to overcome all their hardships and pain, and then turn them into passion and fire. I loved this story and will definitely be checking out the rest of Stephanie’s books. I recommend reading this.

Blurb: Owen was born into a Were family, and like those before him, he is expected to turn on the full moon of his twenty-first birthday. And there are especially high expectations concerning Owen’s shift from boy to wolf, given that his birthday falls on the night of the full moon itself.

But when the full moon rises on that fate night, nothing happens. While others around him change, he stays the same, forced to run for his life from the angry pack. Needless to say, Owen is a disappointment to his family.

But then a mysterious and sexy stranger with wickedly tempting eyes comes to stay at Owen’s mothers boardinghouse, a stranger regarded as suspicious by the clan, who apparently knows that there is far more to Owen than his failure to shift….

Review: This is part of the Growl AmberPax Collection but can be bought and read separately.

It is a really strange book, but one I can see reading over and over. Although I do wish it was longer, because it left me hanging and with questions. I really want a story that has a beginning that introduces the characters, then the story of their lives, and then the end. This one had me trying to figure out who everyone was, what they were really up too and where will Owen end up.

Owen had turned twenty-one and was supposed to change into his wolf. However, that did not happen. It left him with a lot of hateful wolves including his own family. So when Sloane shows up at his mother’s boardinghouse, he was just trying to figure out who this man was. Sloane kidnaps him and takes him away from his family. The only problem is Sloane tells him that not only is he a special type of wolf, but that Sloane is a natural-born alpha wolf. It is foretold that an omega kills all the wolves. Owen flat-out refuses to follow the rules, and he knows that all he wants is this man.

Sloane wants to kill Owen’s family because of the fact that Owen’s uncle had killed Sloane’s family. Revenge is all he is thinking about, however it would also mean his death. What he didn’t expect was to fall in love with a quirky fireball.

I always wondered what it meant by dark fantasy and I come to the conclusion that this story tells it perfectly. It has a darkness to it and I was surprise to find out that I really did like the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who loved shapeshifters, werewolves, two hot and sexy men, hot sex, and lots of twist and turns. It keeps you on the edge of the seat. However, I do not like books where it leaves me wondering. This one I actually loved.
