Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Blackwood Pack collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc I would suggest reading them in sequential order.

Hunter’s mother trusted him with her visions right before she passed on. His aunt had shown up in bad shape a few years before but now she was dying. Her family, she believed had been killed. He was to take her to her son’s. He had not expected the shock of what was going to happen nor the shock of finding his mate.

Fionn is a very rare dragon, so rare only one is born at a time. He was a white dragon gifted from the gods. He was also only eighteen and had not been free from his father’s evilness for very long. Now he has found his mate. To top it off danger is coming their way.

This is one of those stories that need to be read back to back and in order. It gets pretty jumbled with all the characters and their story mixed in. I felt like I had been missing quite a bit when I first started reading the story. It is also a very long winded story that made it even more confusing then ever. It is a very entertaining and interesting story however and did manage to keep my attention. I can admit though I have no clue in what direction the story is headed. The characters were not a big hit with me but their shifter animals were. I just couldn’t figure out whether or not I liked them.

I will admit though I didn’t much care for the cover. It did not show any connection at all with the characters just a sex appeal. I didn’t really think about reading it due to the fact of the cover. However that is on me. I will also admit that it took a while for me to be in the story to even remember the previous ones.

Over all the story was interesting and the world was quite unique. I enjoyed the story and can’t wait to see where it goes.

Blurb: Fabian Valentine knew that when his best friend, king of the paranormals, Raven Stone, sent him to Clearnight Haven that he would have a big mess to clean up to get this coven back on track, but he never would have guessed what was really going on. Fabian, along with his four brothers, arrive in Clearnight ready to take on the task but are at a complete loss when they start uncovering the true depth of evil that has gripped this town.

Atticus Lovering has always been quiet and shy. Being the smallest vampire in his coven and having an abusive mother had him feeling inadequate most of his life. But when Atty decides to take a chance on love, it turns out to be the biggest mistake of his life and he finds himself trapped in the clutches of human traffickers.

Now it is up to Fabian to track down Atticus and others who have fallen victim. But Fabian’s urgency to save Atticus soon takes on a whole new meaning when he discovers the cute little vampire is more important to him than he realized..

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Fabian and his brothers are determined to get the coven back to what it was before corruption blinded them. Atticus is a sweet, shy small vampire who is abused and lonely. Things are set in motion and Atticus is kidnapped by traffickers. Fabian jumps into action to track down the culprits and save those that have been taken.

I liked the story. It was intense at times and I felt bad for those taken against their will. Fabian was intent on his getting the victims back considering he discovers one is his mate.

Great addition to the series.

Slate, one of the last Dire Wolves, has carved out a life which suits him fine—plenty of traveling to exotic locations and an abundance of one night stands to handle his needs. While he’s happy for his brother, who has found his Fated Mate, Slate isn’t interested in finding his—at least not for a long time. That is, until his body betrays him. Seeking his mother’s help—who is an Oracle—Slate pays a visit to the Blackwood Pack where he finds the Fates have once again, messed with his life.

Dakota, the chef for the Blackwood Pack, fell in love with cooking as a young child and ultimately the kitchen became a place of refuge for him. Suffering with a ‘curse’ through much of his childhood, he relied heavily on his mother’s help to deal with it. After the massacre of his mother and siblings by their greedy uncle, Dakota barely survives, but finally forges a life for himself, content to stay home and take care of the people he loves.

A long-hidden secret, rejection of a mate, acceptance of rare gifts, and a brutal kidnapping are just some of the obstacles Dakota and Slate must battle together to save their relationship. As the pack rallies around them, both must learn to trust the other before they can find the happiness that the Fates have ordained for them…

Slate finds that fate is once again interfering in his life as he is sent toward his mate. Dakota, a chef of the Blackwood pack, has a lifetime of worry tagging along for the ride as he carves out a new life for himself after surviving the massacre by his uncle.

I loved these two characters. They fought, they loved, they conquered. Such an amazing ride to witness as these two struggle to make it through what life has thrown their way to achieve happiness with the other.

I have enjoyed the entire series so far. Adventurous, mysterious, and romance plus a slew of other genres thrown into the mix to make for an interesting series.

Great read.

Lisa’s Review: 💖💖💖💖 3.5 Hearts

Slate loves to travel and help other packs. He is one of the last dire wolves and has a destiny to finish in a way. He wants his mate and knows that one of the gifts given to him is for his mate to become pregnant. However he doesn’t want one right off the bat or so he thinks. When he finds his mate on a visit home. The gods give many gifts and he is about to be surprised.

Dakota is an empath and the worst is the fear and pain of others. His gift is more of a curse to him. His father is one of the evils of the world and he felt it all. The hate that he had for his family and the fact that he just loved to cause pain in his sons. When he figures out who his mate is, he panics. He knows Slate doesn’t want one but he can’t stay hidden forever.

I had a few issues with the story that made me want to just give up on the story. The jump from one character to the next drove me nuts and the fact that the author reiterated certain parts over and over was a bit overdone. There were certain words used for pecs and sex that made me think a teen was writing the story. The word tits for pecs made the stupid come out. It made me think the author was wishing for females then the guys in the story. There was just more information in the story than was needed and it made me want to put the book down. It made the story feel like the author just threw it in to make the book longer and it didn’t do it any justice. You could have the danger that showed up in there without the need to float back and forth in the story. It took away from the characters in the end. I was glad that the guys got their happy ending but the way the story was told made me want to pitch the whole series.

The world that the author created was amazing but the way the story was told not so much. Information overload is what I think of. I will admit that this story is not one of those that will be read more than once and that was a let down. The story would have been a five if it had not had to much added in to make word count. I am sorry but for right now this story is not what it should have been or where it should have been at.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts, Heat Level: Low

This is one of those series that must be read in order. Trust me you will fall in love with these guys.

Logan wants Kieran more than he has wanted any man before. He just doesn’t smell like they are fated mates. His pack seems to be getting bigger as time goes by, but he is happy with the way things are going. However he doesn’t truly show it, growing up his and Jackson’s father was a piece of work. Always blaming everything that goes wrong on Logan. He slowly learned to turn his feelings to ice, never showing how he really felt. That is until Kieran.

Kieran had been sold as a slave to a nasty piece of work. He was a special wolf with a very unique gift. He can calm and help ones feelings with just a touch. He learned how to hide his scent similar to the w ay Logan and their pack does. Things get a bit twisted for these two but well lets just say the book rocks.

I had a blast reading this book even more than the last three. So much so that I can see myself reading this series more than once. Danger, excitement, surprises, adventure and some hot sexy times are just a few things you get in this book. The characters are a blast to read, and lets just say that Kieran and his friends are my favorite so far. Cute and sexy is an understatement. These guys just pull at your heart.

I enjoyed reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts, Heat Level: Moderate

This story was a very intense emotional one. Keiran and Logan are both struggling to deal with what happened to them in the past. My heart cried out for the both of them and what they endured. I felt the love between them as they helped one another the best they could.
Keiran and Logan were both strong yet damaged characters. The struggles they faced were unimaginable. Yet they found a way with each other. I love how this series is going so far.

The one thing I never understood was why the brothers kept their powers a secret from each other as well as their mates. It seems to me they would have a much stronger front if they knew what said powers each had and what exactly they could but that’s just me.

Great read. Looking forward to reading more.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts, Heat Level: Low

This is one of those series that must be read in order. Trust me you will fall in love with these guys.

Cody had part of his gift when he was a child. First it was like a feeling, then when their pack was killed he was getting visions left and right. He was also getting the pain from them just like he was the one that it was happening to. The thing was when he got a vision he left the place he was on and basically went somewhere else. He was afraid that one day he would not come back from it, somedays he wished it would happen. Then he realized the wolf that they found was his mate. A mate that could help him.

Dylon has known since he was a teenager that his mate would be a seer and that he would need him. He had been caught ratting out the pack he was out, the problem was he had no memory of it. Not that it helped him, it got him beaten almost to death. Then he comes to only to find out the ones who saved him were the ones that he was suppose to kill. And that the pack who ordered the hit, were the same ones that killed Cody’s family and pack.

This has some pretty good surprises in this book. I was pleased at how well this book turned out. Exciting with danger and lots of action are just a bit of what you get in this book. And trust me, you are going to love Dylon’s mom. She is a hoot. This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more.

I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading the next book.

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 4 1/2 Hearts, Heat Level: Moderate

Cody is struggling with his seer gift as it has intensified. he is on the verge of giving up. Ex enforcer Dylon is badly beaten and on the verge of death when he comes to the Blackwood pack. I enjoyed the meeting between these two. The struggles they each have been through are a testiment to how strong they really are.

The series continues evolve in a great series with each brother being a focus and the gifts explained. I liked the details surrounding the brothers as the come in better focus. Cody and Dylon amazed me with their passion. I loved they helped each other when it was needed.

Love all the twists and turns that seem to just keep coming the further the series goes. I will not be pained in the least when the bad guys finally get whats coming to them. I will revel in the fact they will be no more. I despise them with a passion. The harm they have inflicted was so beyond bad that I have no words to describe it.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts, Heat Level: Low

Colton and his brothers are the last remaining wolves from their pack. Murdered by an uncle for greed. They were alpha’s who were also omega’s. His brother was given the gift to have a child. Colton had finished over three years for his nursing degree before they had to run. It was the only thing he ever wanted to do, and now he might have the choice. A choice that is the most powerful of gifts to have, now all he had to do is to believe it.

Ian was a doctor and was pretty good at what he did. His whole life he believed that he was a gamma wolf, but it would seem there is some hidden truths in him. He has spent time talking to Colton on the phone but believes that they are mates. He never wanted to mate for fear that it would take away from what he wanted to do. Then Colton is kidnapped and being sold, he would do everything in his powers to save him.

This story was quite a bit better than the first book. It was exciting and danger filled all the way. It also was very unique in more than just one way. The characters just seemed to flow together perfectly, but damn Ian’s wolf is nutty. I love how they are so much closer to their wolves then many shifter stories are.

I found myself entranced with this book and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book to see if it is even better than this one.

I had a lot of fun reading it and would definitely recommend it.

Shorty’s Review:♥♥♥♥♥ 4 1/2 Hearts, Heat Level: Moderate

Loved this story about Colton and Ian. We are given more insight to the characters and details are revealed as to the why of things past. I loved that Ian wanted to ride to the rescue when Colton is kidnapped.

Colton struggles with his missed dream of being a nurse and settles for helping animals instead. When Dr, Ian comes in the sparks fly between the two then Colton is kidnapped.

I loved just about everything about this intriguing struggle of good and evil. Twists and turns take the reader on a journey of unimaginable power.

The only thing that confused me was why the dire warning in the first book if there were going to be no consequences? I would have thought kidnapping would be in the category of anything bad happening to the Blackwood pack members still living but that’s me.

Great read.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts, Heat Level: Low

Jackson and his brothers were the only survivors of their pack. They were special wolves and really had no clue. Jackson was the oldest which made him the alpha but he sure didn’t act like one. Which explained how he ended up hitchhiking buttass naked. What he had not expected was the man who picked him up, his mate.

Steel was an alpha wolf but he was also one of the four last dire wolves. His mother was the voice of fate and had told him something no male wolf would ever believe. That his mate would be the one to have his child.

Too bad the ones who killed Steel’s pack, wanted the rest of them dead. It is going to take a miracle in more ways then one. Now with this pack it is very long winded and goes off on things that were not really needed. So much so that it was harder to get into the story and even harder to finish the book. The characters were somewhat weird and didn’t really connect at all with them. There is great potential in this story but for me it was just overblown with a lot of added in stuff that could have been left out.

The story is unique and fresh with the idea of white wolves that are not just alpha but also omega. I did enjoy the fact that they could get pregnant but wished that the story was not dropped right in the middle. I don’t care for books that don’t have closure with each book and cliff hangers are not my idea of fun. Most times it makes me leave the book and drop the series, but I will make my decision on the next book.

Over all the story is a good read.

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts, Heat Level: Explicit

I really wanted to love this story of an Alpha whose pack and family were attacked and massacred while him and his brothers are away at college. This story start of well as we see Steele and Jackson meet to discover they are fated mates. The intensity between these two was off the charts.

The want and need to discover the culprits of the massacre and to get back what was theirs was interesting. The huge cast of characters was a lot to take in all at once but they were important to understand how everything began. However, the many POV’s, inner dialogue’s and the overabundance of sex scenes, not to mention talking about them made me seriously speed read the book.

I am not a fan of more sex in a book when there is no need for it.

The overall feel is more porn like to me as opposed to a well rounded story with a balance of things throughout. I hope Steel and Jackson’s story will continue in the next book as I didn’t feel as though it was completely finished. I did enjoy the revelations that came to light in this story and the fact the book was well written.

I feel it would have much better if some of the sex had been cut out and inner dialogue’s slimmed.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I love vampire stories and even more so when other paranormals are added to the mix. However this book seriously lacked a solid story line for me as it was mostly sex scenes, yes I know this is an erotica book but come on, with a little story thrown in the mix.

Raven has to find his other mate before his time runs out and he is forced to let someone else rule. Joel was a little cutie who is a reporter. He gets himself in trouble looking into a story when he runs from his mates not understanding what is going on seeing as he’s human. 

Sorry, but I just did not like this book. Maybe a little less pages upon pages of nothing but sex in the next book and I’ll love it.
