Review: Each book in the Mercury Rising collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Jimmy is a simple man who loves what he does. He is an accountant that works from home, not getting rich but who does these days. He is also a leopard shifter and the only thing he is missing is a mate.

Ethan has not only noticed Jimmy but wanted the little man. Thing do not go smoothly for these two but Ethan knows he can find away. To bad someone is trying to get his mate but it is not the same one killing the humans.

I had a bit harder time with this particular book. In all the others shifters and vampires knew their mates by scent, however in this book that is not the case. Or right off the bat anyway, they around each other and neither knows till a little later on. This story didn’t come off the way it should have and I couldn’t pin point the problem with it. It just felt a little harsher and didn’t flow the way it should have. That isn’t to say that it wasn’t a good book because I still got a kick out of it. I really got a kick out of Jimmy and his attitude.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to see what the next book has going on in it.

Blurb: Milo has had enough. He’s always loved his job as a PA, at least until his old Boss, Noel, moved to Wyoming to be with his mate. Now Milo has been saddled with Baron MacDowell, shark lawyer and asshole extraordinaire, and he can’t take it anymore. He decides to call Noel to see if his old job is still available, and to his relief, it is. He didn’t expect it to come complete with a mate, though.

The warehouse where the council assassins live is on lockdown. Someone tried to kill one of them, and there’s a hit out on all their heads. It’s not the best moment for North to meet his mate, but there’s no way he’s rejecting Milo, not when he’s been jealous of Roark and Armand since they each found their better half.

Milo and North’s relationship is easy, and they both settle into it as naturally as breathing. There’s still someone trying to kill North and the other assassins, though. Between that, the news that North’s cousins are still alive after he thought they were dead for the past eighteen years, and Evan who’s behaving weirdly, Milo and North are going to have to learn to navigate their new life together—if they both survive, that is.

Milo loved his job or he did when he worked for Noel. Now not so much, and he knew he needed to get away. Oh the job was not dangerous just his boss was one of the biggest asshats ever created. A coworker and his bestfriend both said the same thing, call Noel and ask for help. He just had not expected to meet North.

North and the rest of the assassins had hits put out on them and they were all grounded. So when Noel had a problem, North jumped at the chance to go along. He had not expected to find his mate. However they had someone giving out their location to the killer, so protection just went up.

I have always loved this authors work and can honestly admit that she never fails to deliver. I love the unique type of shifters and paranormal’s in her books. While the story is not unique, it does have some amazing twists to it. The stories always give me everything I could ask for in a story. It gives you action, excitement, adventure, danger and some hot sexy times plus a bit more. My attention was caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a blast reading this and can guarantee that it will be one of those that will be read more than once. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book and would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: Brandon has all the problems eighteen-year-old guys have—an overbearing mother, a little brother he could do without, and two slightly pushy best friends. When he goes dancing one night, he doesn’t expect to find himself with more problems—and a mate.

Maddox is a loner, and he likes it. He trusts his numerous pets more than most humans, but some people don’t allow him to push them away, like Asher, his coworker and best friend. Asher is the only reason Maddox finds himself dragged to the club even though he hates crowds and dancing. And when he steps into the bathroom and realizes something is happening in one of the stalls, the evening takes a turn for the worse. Someone drugged his mate and assaulted him.

Brandon knows he was lucky Maddox stepped in when he did, but when the man who drugged him escapes before being taken to the council jail, he expects things to go south. He’s not sure why Maddox offers him to stay at his house, since he clearly loves living alone, but he’s not about to say no to the possibility of getting to know his mate better, even though Maddox keeps him at arm’s length.

But the man who drugged Brandon is on the run, and he’s coming for Brandon. Will Maddox be able to keep his mate safe—even from himself? Or will he break Brandon’s heart before losing him?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is branched off from Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack, and Council Enforcers. For the full impact I would start with book one in the Whitedell Pride series.

Brandon has a very over protective mother who pretty much acts like a crazy nancy around him. When he is drugged and attacked he is rescued by his mate, but his mother needs a Valium. When the man escapes from transport, Brandon must go into hiding. Guess who he gets to hide out with.

Maddox was fifteen when his parents kicked him out for being gay and it seemed to just stick with him. He trusted no one to stick around so other than a couple of friends, well lets just say he has some fuzzy babies that are adorable. When he comes across his mate getting attacked he does what any mate will do, but he just has no clue what else to do about it.

I will admit that I am not really a big fan of this particular series but only because it comes off more like a youth book than the other three series. The characters seem more weak and needy than their parents. Which would make sense if it was for the youth readers. There is a mention of sex but you don’t really get any sexy times in the story. However other than my issues with it, this one had action, danger, a twist that you wouldn’t expect and some really cute cuddles. It is perfect for when you are just needing a good book to read. I actually think I liked Brandon more than Maddox though. However his love of animals is a big hit for Maddox. Always loved a man with an animal.

I enjoyed it quite a bit and can’t wait to see what the next book has in it. It is one of those series that will be read many times over.

Blurb: Hunter White left home as soon as he was able. Coming back to take over as alpha, Hunter learned of the serious debt his father had left the pack with. Desperate to save them, Hunter entered into a deal with a powerful vampire. The nest leader would pay off all the pack’s debts, on one condition—Hunter had to take a vampire for a mate.

Vampire Aeron Lyons had been in some serious scrapes during his unnaturally long life, but nothing came close to this. Being given to an alpha werewolf, like he was some sort of bargaining chip, wasn’t what Aeron wanted for his life, but he wasn’t dumb enough to say no to a man like Ken Roberts.

Resigning himself to join a pack who already dislikes him on principal, Aeron has no idea how rocky the road ahead will be or how he’s going to spend the rest of his life with a man who hates him.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Hunter was pretty much driven from his home what with his father’s drinking. He never really wanted to go back, that is until his dad passed on. To bad he came back to a pack that was getting ready to loose it all. He took a deal with the devil for help, but in turn it meant he had to mate an enemy of the pack. He was to mate a vampire.

Aeron’s life was pretty much like Hunters, but his was his mother. His mother was an addict and it cost her her future. He had given up everything to have his mother in a care home and it meant he owed his leader. He just hadn’t expected to find out that he was to be bargained off to an wolf.

Neither are going to expect what they find out. I am never a fan of stories that give you a good book only to find out that it is just going to be that one book. This story had so much potential to be a series and it isn’t going to be. I felt a little let down with it. I did like Aeron quite a bit and his attitude has always been great. Hunter was an ass to the poor guy but was glad to see that it changed. However that being said, it moved faster than I thought it should have. Then the action was like one page and it was over.

The story needed more depth to it to make it truly rock. More substance in it to make it a top story. It came off very rushed and that was another let down. This story was damn good but it could have been better. However I can see myself reading it once more.

Reviewer: Prime

Blurb: When unassuming college student Emery Sutton wakes up in the morgue, it takes him a few minutes to remember he has magic (superpowers, damn it!) and free himself from the refrigerated drawer. And the body bag. (God.) It doesn’t take long, though, for him to remember the hot guy with wings he ran into just before a city bus ran into him.

Junior Reaper John must explain to his supervisor how his first solo assignment went so wrong. All he knows is that he happened upon Emery quite by accident, that Emery saw John when he shouldn’t have been able to, and when they accidentally touched, a bus came out of nowhere and plowed Emery under. (John really does feel bad about that.)

Hot angels, annoying demons, hijinks, absurdity, drunk siblings, a dash of silly romance, an inordinate attachment to wings, and a highly disorganized bid for world domination—Don’t Fear the (Not Really Grim) Reaper follows Emery and John down the rabbit hole where they find that moms are scarier than demons from hell, a goat is not a puppy no matter what Emery’s sister says, and awkward romance can happen anywhere.

Review: Carole Cummings is an author that I’ve heard of and until I went through my book files, I could have sworn I have read something by her in the past. I didn’t really know what to expect from this one. However, reading the blurb I thought that it would be a really fun, quick read with the possibility of angels and demons and all in a package that doesn’t seem to take itself seriously. Which, is exactly what I got.

Emery is a mostly normal college guy who has a penchant for getting into trouble because of the “superpowers” he’s had since he was a kid. His parents have shielded him for the most part and that has meant that he hasn’t crossed the radar of anyone magical. That all changes when Emery encounters Junior Reaper, John.

John is fresh out of training and starting his career in the afterlife as a reaper. John was born and died a human, he doesn’t remember much and he isn’t meant to, but the afterlife presents him with the chance to become a reaper, helping the souls of dying. His encounter with Emery has Emery waking up very much alive in a hospital morgue. As for John, he is in a whole world trouble as the angels and demons quickly find out what has been hiding on earth.

I’m not sure what to feel about this book. There is a little bit of romance, because Emery and John are attracted to each other, but this is not something overly explored in the story. It is more the ending point for their possibility of a HEA. I think on the whole that is ok as there is a lot more to unpack. Yet the downside to that is I think that there was too much goofing off between characters, which made me impatient as it just felt like filler for the story and so other ends of the story wrapped up quickly within all the chatting. It is a shame because Emery’s character really appealed to me. His pop culture references were also right up my alley – Firefly, Doctor Who, Star Wars and Star Trek. The biggest problem in the end was that I just feeling underwhelmed by the whole thing.

Blurb: On the Road: When a serious fae warrior stumbles across his soul-mate in a fun-loving, paralyzed human, he discovers the hardest task in his life is learning how to connect.

Prudhoe Rison is a specially trained fae enforcer and had been sent to the human realm to search for a missing prince. After completing that task, he should have returned home, but feeling a pull to stay, he’s remained for several weeks. Wandering the town to discover the source of the sensation has proven fruitless…until he drives past the library. The pull he’s been feeling intensifies, and he follows it into the building. There he meets Korvyn Peruke—his paramour—the other half of his soul. Prudhoe is drawn to Korvyn’s friendly disposition and outgoing personality. Even though the human is wheelchair-bound, it doesn’t stop Korvyn from enjoying life.

At first, Korvyn doesn’t understand why the serious and handsome Prudhoe is taking an interest in him—until he puts two and two together. A visit from a fae enforcer alerts Prudhoe that people in his own realm are talking about him. It also tells Korvyn—who already knows about paranormals—that Prudhoe is something other. Can Prudhoe keep Korvyn safe when trouble from the fae realm comes calling, or will he have to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep Korvyn safe?

Review: Each book in the Kontra’s Menagerie collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story has branched off to several series and I would start with book one in the Wolves of Stone Ridge series.

Damn the fae are harsh. Old rule that their paramour can be any of the families and Prudhoe’s brother is an ass. When he came over to this realm to find his prince, he had not expected to come across his paramour. He also had not expected his brother to show up and try to abduct his man.

Korvyn, and I am glad to see him get his story, has always known about the paranormal world. When he had been younger he had been in an accident that left him paralyzed. However it also left him alone, most men were afraid that they were going to hurt him. So when Prudhoe started flirting with him and then getting just a bit possessive, yeah he knew what it meant. And damn if he wasn’t going to have a good time.

I love how Charlie Richards always adds in some pretty cool characters in her stories. Unique and fresh ideas plus a lot of hot sexy times are just a few things I get from these books. Add in a touch of mystery, lots of action and did I say some hot sexy times . The characters rock as always and I was glad Korvyn got his love story, he was always one of my favorites. I would have liked a bit more information on why Prudhoe’s brother hated him, but it wasn’t too hard to guess.

I had a blast reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. I can tell you that this book is one of those that will be read more than once.

This particular story is connected to the Brac Pack, Zeus Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Generation, and Demon Warriors. To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Newton has no clue what is going on and who is breaking in, but he does the one thing he knows should help. He calls the police and then hides. He had not expected the sexy man in front of him that is after he is coaxed out of the closet. When the sexy sheriff’s decides to bring him home with him, things might be looking up.

Now how does a scared closet hiding Newt think that he is going to take on a wolf shifter to help his mate is beyond me. I actually found myself liking this quite a bit more than the previous books that I have read today. I really liked Newt and the sheriff was quite hot. With this story you get excitement, danger, action, chaos, hot sexy times and quite a bit more.

I enjoyed reading this story and am intrigued to see what the next book has coming.

by

J.P. Sayle

Nick Riley, on the surface has it all. He’s grown up in a loving family, owns his own home, and has a job he loves. Yet under that façade of a happy life, Nick hides a multitude of secrets and lies. Those same secrets and lies have forced him to build walls to protect himself and kept others away.

Nick’s life is unraveling, and his walls are tumbling when his brother invites him for a visit to the Isle of Man. Nick is left floundering, unsure which way to turn and who to trust when his past decides to come knocking. Things go from bad to worse when Nick finds the fates haven’t finished with him, and his brother’s best friend, Brody Quilliam, comes to stay.

Brody Quilliam needs a break from his life and the weight of responsibility of his job. So when his best friend, Aaden Riley, moves to the Isle of Man and asks him to visit, Brody decides to take him up on the offer. Only things don’t go as planned when he finds Aaden’s younger brother, Nick, visiting at the same time.

Their love-hate relationship is only the beginning of Brody’s concerns. Events he can’t explain make him think he’s stuck in the twilight zone.

Witches, spells, and misconceptions are only the tip of the iceberg as Brody struggles to come to terms with the unbelievable.

Warning: Some of the content of this book is sexually graphic, with the use of explicit language and adult situations involving two males. It is only intended for mature adults.

This is the sixth book in the series and should be read in order to give the reader the back story of the other characters. The main characters in this book do get a HEA, but there is a storyline threading through the main story that is a cliffhanger and relates to a future series.

Blurb: Roman is a hunter, tasked with finding and eliminating those who break the laws set down in a treaty between the humans and the paranormals. After being held captive and tortured for months, he’s more than ready to track down the one man he couldn’t stop thinking about. It was just too bad Seth wasn’t where he left him.

Wolf shifter Seth Connelly has a deep hatred of hunters. In his mind, they have done nothing but kill his kind for centuries. He fully believes that every last one of them needs to be wiped from the earth. When he meets an attractive man in a local bar and takes him home for the night, Seth never dreams that the man he spends the night with is his mate—and a hunter.

Vampire Casey is sent to deliver a message to a wolf shifter hiding out in the mountains. Before he can reach his destination, he’s attacked. He shows up on Seth’s doorstep, bloody and bruised, and never dreaming fate had a plan for him even he couldn’t imagine.

Standing on different sides of a war that is quickly coming, Roman, Seth, and Casey have to learn to put their hatred aside and work together to eliminate a new threat to them all. Failure to do so could mean more than their lives. It could mean the end of everything, including the growing love that neither of them can deny…but sometimes, hatreds run very deep.

Review: Each book in the Tribal Bonds collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Seth has met his mate, loved his mate then abandoned by him. It would seem that Seth being a wolf shifter was to much for the big bad hunter. Then when he almost got a friend killed because of his anger, he just wanted to be off the grid. To bad his brother wouldn’t let him. But he had not expected the cute vampire who was bloody to not only be on his step but to be another mate. Not that the ass believed the man, he had no clue what he was in for.

Roman was not only a human but a hunter who hated most paranormals, or so he used to in the past. He was getting over it but to find out that the man he slept with was his mate was a bit of a difficult thing to get over. However he wanted to make up for it. So imagine his surprise to find out about Casey.

Casey was a vampire sent on a mission to deliver a message. He had not expected to get beat up by others nor had he expected to wake up to a mate. Not that the man believed him. Casey was a sweet soul who just wanted his mate. When danger showed up and Casey is placed in danger, guess who shows up to help him.

I am not normally a fan of threesomes but Stormy always has me changing my mind. Out of all the characters I must say that Casey is the one I liked the most. He is just a cutie. However I did understand Seth’s pain as well. These three together is one hot sexy time. Danger, excitement and so much more is what you get with this story. And let me tell you that I had to finish the whole book in one sitting. I can guarantee that this is one of those books that will be read more than once.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to read the next one. I would definitely recommend this book and the ones before it.

Blurb: Nylian Lukalyn, Ny to his friends, leads a content life— working for the family business, while enjoying life as part of the fae community. Watching friends fall in love hasn’t been easy, and he wonders if his ceile, his soul mate, is truly out there, or if he’s destined to spend his life alone.
Dran leads a solitary life, partly because he’s a bear shifter, but mostly because it is the life he has chosen. He’s devoted to tattooing and creating art. While he hopes to find his mate someday, he’s waiting patiently for the right person to appear in his life.

A chance meeting between Ny and Dran leaves an intense, simmering attraction. One they’d both love to pursue, but life isn’t as easy as that. The after-effects of an attack on their paranormal community has left their attention and budding romance divided while both are forced to focus on other aspects of paranormal life.

When another feral attack rocks the community, it shows how much danger they are all in— the most lethal feral they’ve encountered so far is out for blood. Friends old and new work together to try and bring the attacks to an end. Ny and Dran must figure out exactly what they mean to each other while praying that none of them lose their lives while they battle to rid Corent City of the ferals.

Review: Sweet story about Ny and Dran. I love these two together. Most of the book focused on them and their relationship amid attacks on the group. It was an emotional story with sweet and tender moments.

I love that other characters showed up in the story as well. The only thing was that I wanted to know more about the feral outbreaks and attacks not to mention why they are happening. I assume all will be revealed in future books.

Great read.

Blurb: World of Aquatica: When a police captain uses a free pass to explore a marine park, he runs across a man whose blatant pursuit turns his life upside down.

Captain John Casinov has two loves in his life—his family and his work. When his son, Jonathan, and the man’s family visits from Santa Cruz—primarily to try to convince him to retire and move south—John takes advantage of one of his detective’s offer. He accepts a bunch of free passes to the marine park, World of Aquatica. While there, he finds his interest snagged by a big, friendly, black-haired man. The handsome man brazenly introduces himself as William Roush…then he asks John on a date. While he’s flattered, John laughs it off while declining. Undeterred, William approaches John a second time later that day, so he accepts. Imagine his surprise when John discovers who William actually is—the partial owner of the marine park. John doesn’t understand why a man who’s young, confident, and rich—who could have anyone he wants—would pursue him. When William shares that shifters are real, John wonders at the man’s sanity…until William actually proves it. Can John come to grips with his newfound knowledge and accept William into his life? Or will retiring and running be the decision of the day?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each Book in the Beneath Aquatica’s Waves collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order.

John was the captain of the police force and he loved what he did. However his son wanted him to retire and move south to be near them. He just wanted to do what he loved. When a night out with the family leads him to one hell of a sexy man, secrets start to come out. As well as the problems or at least problems for his son. Then he finds out William has a pretty big secret of his own and damn if it is not surprising for John.

There were a few issues with this story that made me drop the rating down a bit. For one it doesn’t flow as well as it should and it ended so abruptly. There could have been so much more added on to make it stand out which it did not do this time around. Also the police captain just didn’t seem to connect as well with his mate, which made it hard for me to connect with him. I do love how this author gives us some pretty unique characters to read about and makes their world stand out. Other than my issues it was still a good read.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I would definitely recommend this book.

(Port Lewis Witches 03)
by

Brooklyn Ray

Despite the rumors about Port Lewis, Michael Gates doesn’t expect the house he rents with his sister on Foxglove Lane to be haunted. An eerie meeting with Victor Lewellyn, the resident witch-turned-demon who is bound to the property by dark magic, changes his mind.

Michael isn’t looking to start a relationship with anyone, let alone someone like Victor, but the intense attraction between them can’t be ignored. As he dives into the world of magical drug rings, demons, witches, and necromancers, Michael also grapples with the complicated past he left behind in Arizona.

A relationship might not be what he wants, but it sparks something in him he didn’t realize he needs—the chance to heal.

Heat Level: Low – Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 4 1/2 Hearts

Blurb: Ailin~

The demon gate needs to be sealed, at least from higher level demons. I may be the most powerful witch in the world right now, but I know I can’t do it alone. No one wants to help and risk their lives for the greater good, not that I can blame them, really. It kills me to ask my boyfriend, Emrys, but I suck it up because his magic is nearly as powerful as my own. He doesn’t want to help at first, but let’s just say I can be very persuasive.

Emrys~

Maybe he should’ve listened to me, maybe we never should’ve gone to the gate. Terrible things unfold, and Ailin and I are torn apart, our love ripped to shreds. My life is forever changed, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

In the Witch’s Seal, you’ll discover some secrets from Ailin, Emrys, and even Alec. Find out what really happened between Ailin and Emrys before the events in The Enchanter’s Flame took place, but it’s recommended that you read Book 1 first.

***The Witch’s Seal is the prequel to The Enchanter’s Flame: The Ellwood Chronicles I. It contains explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 and over.***

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: A short story about the events that made Emory and Ailin break up. This story had a very tense situation in where Emory tried to kill Ailin or at least it seemed like it. I liked that despite being banned from the property Emory still checked up on the coven now and then.

I was pleased he found someone else, Julius, a vampire and seems happy. I am looking forward to more in this series to see what happens with the other characters.

Great read.

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: Artemas, known as the academic son of Poseidon, spent much of his time trying to work out how the Fates decided who was to be mated to whom. With the fall of his brothers, his father, and others in their close circle, he was worried he’d be next in line and the last thing he wanted or needed was a mate. But his uncle Zeus pulled him away from his studies with a special project for him – the retrieval of a book from an auction. A very special book by all accounts; the only known written record from the god Silvanus, one of the originals who hadn’t been heard from for decades. Unable to resist a good book mystery, Artemas agrees to leave Poseidon’s library long enough to bid on it.

Silvanus had spent fifty years in deep despair over what was happening to the world. He’d been alone since the beginning of time, and when his depression reached breaking point, he pleads with the Fates to remove him from the tapestry of life. Telling him it was impossible, the Fates agreed to a promise instead. Silvanus would find his mate and the love his heart hoped for. Seeking to regain his book, after it’d been sold at an auction, Silvanus lands in a hotel room, meeting his fated promise face-to-face. Unfortunately, their first meeting was not the romantic event Silvanus had hoped for.

It’s soon clear Artemas’s emotional baggage wasn’t the only threat to their possible mating. A meddling god is on the loose, and when Odin and Loki are ruled out as possible suspects, only one other god comes to mind. Throw in the fact that Thor was due to give birth any minute, and Artemas and Silvanus have to work together in more ways than one. Will Silvanus ever get the time to heal the pain in Artemas’s heart, or will the meddling god take everything they have and more?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in The Gods Made Me Do It collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This story is connected to the Cloverleah Pack.

Artemas is the son of Poseidon and Throth although he wishes most times he wasn’t. Throth basically dropped him off at Poseidon’s and never looked back. Which wouldn’t have been so bad had Poseidon wanted anything to do with him. Over a thousand years have past and Poseidon was getting better at it, now that he had the twin cuties. However even as time has past his pain was still there. So when he goes to bid on a book by a quite older god, a god that was thought of as being gone, imagine his look when Silvanus shows up.

Silvanus is basically older than life itself and has finally been given the gift of a mate. A mate that has much pain in his heart and doesn’t believe that what they could have would be possible. It is going to take some patience and luck to get through. However someone is out to either get the book or his mate. The threat is real they just have to figure it out.

I have always loved this author’s work and this book didn’t let me down. Action packed with enough excitement to keep me smiling for hours. It is perfect for that day you just need a pick me up. I wasn’t to surprised about who was behind it all but you might be. The characters were quite quirky and definitely hot, although Artemas was a bit off in my minds. However with his past life I can see why. I think I got a big kick out of him the most. Silvanus just seem to go with the flow.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to see what the next story has going on. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over.

I would definitely recommend it.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in The Angel 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. This series is also connected to Beyond The Angel Pack.

The Paradon society has its hands on many executions but what is being asked now is totally insane. Niall had no idea how he knew it but he just knew that what they were asking was suicide. Mike helped Jesse and Taylor when they were younger and now he was back in their lives but the man has many secrets. So when he comes to the alpha’s house you can imagine his surprise when he finds not one but both of his mates at the same time.

Sasha is a powerful guard for the King of Fae and is Sammy’s mate. However Sammy was not raised as one should have been. He was tortured in many different ways and made to created the most deadliest of drugs. He is a genius just like his twin but is also very much afraid of everything including the idea of mating. And that was before with just one mate, now two what was the fates thinking. Just wait for it!

As many readers I felt for sure book fifteen which was Fin was going to be the last book for this series so imagine my surprise when this book shows up. Excitement is just a small word for what I felt. This story gave me all I could want and so much more. Twists and turns, surprises, excitement, entertainment, danger, action and lets not forget that there are three sexy men getting it on. Talk about steaming up the room. I was glad to see everyone there and I just loved Sammy most of all. He was like a breath of fresh air. This is one of those stories that will cheer you up and have you dancing at the same time.

I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I must admit the next dangerous person to show up will be a surprise but I can’t wait. This is one of those series that will be read many time over. I would definitely recommend it and the previous books as well. I sure do hope Sammy and Sasha not to mention Mike get to see the pitter patters as well as the others. Now talk about laughing my ass off, wow.

Blurb: A psychic without an anchor. A student in trouble. A shooter on the loose.

I’m Jonathan Bane, a licensed psychic who consults for the police. I routinely help the police put the bad guys away and, for that reason, the criminal world doesn’t like me much. People like to take a swing at me, or go stabbity, or try for a gun. It makes for interesting times. My psychic ability prevents me from handling anything electronic—and I do mean ANYTHING, I fry it in seconds—so calling for help isn’t always a possibility.

I need an anchor, a partner, but I’m resigned: it’s just wishful thinking.

At least, I thought so until he walked through the door.

Donovan Havili looks like a thug and has the soul of a superhero. He shines so bright in my vision it’s like watching a supernova. He definitely has the right mindset and skills for this crazy job. But asking anyone to take me on long-term is a bit much. And now we’ve got multiple cases to handle, a Chinese exchange student falsely accused who needs our help, and someone taking random shots at me. It’s a bit much for any new guy to handle and I’m half-afraid that my new partner will run for the door.

But in Donovan Havili, the criminal world has met its match. And maybe, just maybe, I have as well.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jon is a very interesting character to say the least. He has a strong psychic abilities and it sometimes ends up with him in danger. Everyone around him wants him to find someone to anchor him but he has some pretty strong fears with it. His mother has a lot to make up for. His life has not been a perfect one but he is loved by many. Well he is loved by all except for those he ends up putting behind bars. All it takes is one look from him to figure out what is in a person’s soul. So when everyone is staring at a man who is there for a job, all he sees is a bright light and beauty.

Donovan is a strong man with a military background. He has a heart of gold and a spirit to match. After being injured he was a bit weary, but you could not tell from the way he protects. He has been judged for the way he looks and acts, but once you get to know him, he will have you eating out of his hand. Jon sees the true him and it makes a difference right off the bat. So much so that it might just put him in the one place that he should be.

Multiple cases going on and you get to see what Jon is all about. The story is quite unique and fresh. I stole this discription from the tag line with this story, but you get Companionable snark, Flirting, Kissing, Jon needs a hug, Donovan gives the best hugs, Getting together, Self-esteem issues, Explicit content, Anal Sex, Romantic Sex, Random shooting, Which Donovan isn’t happy about, Donovan is a gentleman, Sort of, Jon just makes it REALLY REALLY HARD Okay?, Supernatural elements, Modern with Magic, Feels, All the Feels, Mostly accurate medical stuff, Lets not forget that Jon pretty much destroys all electronics’s which was funny as hell. Excitement, danger, adventure, and some pretty sweet characters are a bit more of what you get in this book.

Normally I don’t really care to even try to read a story by an author I have not heard of, but I was glad that I took the chance with this one. The world that was created for this story was amazing and it flowed just perfect for me. When the cases started to build up I couldn’t figure out how the author would work it right, but the ending just about blew me away.

There were a few small issues with it but truthfully it was an amazing story that I had a blast reading. I can honestly say that this will be one of those that will be read many times over.

I would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: Their need to protect him is greater than their need to claim…

Life seems to have it out for Zachary Duchamps. He’s gone from foster home to foster home, until he works his ass off to get into the University of Chicago—hopeful to change his circumstances. But when a side job brings him face-to-face with the paranormal, he’s abducted and sold to the highest bidder. Finally able to escape years later, fate brings him from one nightmare to another.

When the battered, exhausted human shows up at their door, bear shifters Chase and LJ rush to protect Zach from whatever demons are chasing him. They immediately scent the man is theirs, but after all he’s been through, they hold back the instinctual need roaring in their blood.

Zach’s finally safe in Bear Mountain—but there are two shifters outside the walls, demanding they are the human’s mates and that he be returned to them.

Can Chase and LJ—with the help of a whole community—keep Zach safe from harm and prove to him that not all shifters are monsters?

And can Zach let go of his past and embrace his future?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This was a powerful, detailed, oriented story. LJ and Chase’ lives are shown in depth as the story continues. I really enjoyed seeing what happened to the men in Benny’s care as well as reading about what happened to Zack. It was terribly horrible that Zack suffered for five years due to someone else’ gain.

Zack for his part is guided to LJ and Chase by someone and the ball is set in motion for three men to connect but due to what Zack has been through it is a tough road as well as Chase facing his past.

I really enjoyed everything about the story. It’s filled with a lot of emotions, loving patience from two bears and a scared young man who yearns to stand on his own and gain freedom that was taken from so long ago. It states that this book is the last in the series with plans for a spin off with the next generation. I can not wait for it to start.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
