Blurb: Sometimes…being a hero hurts.

Vann was thrilled for his alpha, Dryden claiming his mate, and now expecting a pup. Thanks to the alpha-beta link between them, the only downside was how much Dryden’s happiness emphasized Vann’s own loneliness.

There was a wolf who caught Vann’s eye, possibly his fated mate, but Vann couldn’t claim a male. It was too engrained in him to seek out a female mate. An alpha female.

Then, the unimaginable happened. Once again, Arri was abducted, and held captive. Except this time, Vann was as much a prisoner as Arri. Day after day, Vann endured Kale’s cruel torture so that Arri would be as safe as possible.

But the pup was coming soon…

…and Vann’s vow as alpha guardian took on a whole new meaning.

Unable to bear the shame, and guilt of his actions, and unwilling to return to Woodlynn to face his alpha, Vann fled, abandoning Dryden now that the male had his mate back safe, and sound.

*~*~*~*

Dryden was beyond worried that his lead beta, his alpha guardian—his best friend—had disappeared without a trace. Knowing what drove the male to take off didn’t matter to Dryden. Vann had saved his mate, his family. He’d fulfilled his vow, and then some. Dryden was indebted to Vann, and missed the beta desperately, more than he thought possible.

But Vann’s disappearance was only the tip of the iceberg. There was no peace for his family, he was depending on Rovyn more, and more, and yet, couldn’t because the beta had claimed his mate, and needed time with Anrean.

Then there was Border pack, his brother Massey having stepped down, and gone home, leaving Dryden as alpha to both Woodlynn, and Border. Not something that was going over well with the Border wolves. Even Kasp, a psychotic wolf who once belonged to Woodlynn a few years ago was challenging his right to lead Border as the alpha who bested Sbrel.

And to top it all off, Truin, one of his beta-in-trainings, and Vann’s fated mate, had left in search of the missing alpha-guardian, without permission.

His life in chaos, Dryden wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Would he defeat the challengers bent on destroying him? Would he, and Arri ever have time to raise their pup without constant threats?

Would Vann ever return?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: The first thing I am going to say is, that the length of the blurb was crazy. After reading it, I pretty much knew what it was totally about. Then there is the problems that the book had with certain words misused and simple errors that should have been caught in beta read.

Vann saves his alpha mate and child, but feels the guilt of what he has done. He runs as fast as he can. His mate, a mate that he didn’t want follows him. Truin follows his mate, without permission and leaves his alpha wondering what the hell is going on.

This story just about drove me nuts. It has the same issues as the first book had. The editor and beta readers should have caught the mistakes, but did not. This story was jumping around so much that I am surprised I didn’t get whiplash. This book fell short on so many levels because it has the same drama as the first book. There were no surprises other than the fact that Vann runs away like a coward. Or I should say like a guilty coward. I am glad that the other beta got his mate, but it still follows the same weak little omega and a strong wolf.

This story had great potential but the author is just not following through. The blurb gave most of it away so I already knew most of what was going on. There was just lots of filler in this book that was not needed. I am sorry but so far I am not impressed with this book nor this series. Let us hope that book three has a bit more shock to it. Also I hope the next book is about the actual characters and there is no cliff hanger at the end. Very disappointed in this one.

In the quest to craft the perfect gift, Dave tries to urge a few personal details out of stoic Amit. Unintentionally, he learns the Cohen family’s secret: Amit is a golem.

Review: Dave pretty much hates the way Hanukkah has gone. He does not care for the gift giving that they do, a hand made gift is preferred. So he is kind of down around the holidays. He does like talking to Amit though. Although Amit doesn’t really talk back to him. That is until tonight. Amit has a secret, his whole family does, Amit is a golem.

I hate to admit that I have no clue what a golem is. I know he is made from clay and with magic is alive, but other than that not a clue. I can’t say I liked this book, other than the characters themselves. It just came off bizarre to me. Other than that it is a really cute little story.

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

Henry is a sweet bunny shifter whose life is about to be turned nutty. His older brother, who I might add is an ass, is a controlling, egotistical and selfish man is up to know good. He wants to rub it into people’s faces that he has more money than god. He has also sold his brother. Then they show up at a hotel ran by the sexiest of men. One has caught the little cuties eye and he might just loose his virgin status.

Morgan is a brother who has to keep control over certain things. The hotel is finally doing good but his heart is still torn. His little brother is still in a feral state and hardly ever comes out of his room. That is until it is night and he just runs around the hotel in bear form. Then in walks a cutie and his heart might just be his. However Henry’s brother is another matter. Trouble always seems to show up and Morgan is going to protect his mate.

These stories are sweet and funny as hell but it is also missing something. They come off rushed and a bit jumbled. The main thing I find wrong is the way the guys act. They are bear shifters but you couldn’t tell it. For one they can’t scent others as well they don’t know their mates till after sex. They don’t shift unless they are showing their mates and that is just comes off weird. Other than those issues the story is quite enjoyable and can keep you entertained for awhile.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to see what the next book has going with it. I will say that Gus is still my favorite and I hope his story is coming up. Although even with him there were questions that were not answered.

Review: Each book in the Wyoming Shifters: 12 Years Later 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 is actually branched off from different series. I would suggest reading Whitedell Pride, Gillham Pack and Council Enforcer’s first. It gives you back ground into some of the characters you will come across. Not to mention on who Sterling and Adam are and their fathers.

Sterling has met his mate but wants to take time before bonding. Then tragedy strikes and his idea of freedom is but a glimmer in the sun. Sterling’s parents were killed in a car accident and it left him alone to raise twin six year olds and a grouchy teenager, or so he thought. He has the help of not only his pack, but his mate’s pride and his mates family. Not to mention the fact that he has his mate to help.

Adam is younger than his mate by two years, but he knows that he will help his mate with anything. He had not expected to become a family right off the bat, let alone help raise three kids. However he knows that his family will help them all the way. Now he just has to show Sterling that he means it.

As usual Catherine has given us an amazing story with quite a bit of action, suspense, tender moments and some sexy times. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. My attention as usual had been caught from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

I would definitely recommend it and in fact the whole series.

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

Shane has a reputation of being a player but truthfully he is just a flirt. His brothers just don’t give him an inch. He however does go with the flow and slows down with it. That is until the new sexy handyman walks in the door. However it would seem Kieran has a few secrets himself. Shane is a bear shifter where as Kieran is a vampire. Two mates that just seem to be perfect for each other.

There is a few issues with the story that are sticking out to me. One of them is there were a few words missing in some of the sentences but it was still easy to follow. Also the story felt rushed and a bit choppy to me. I think the main question I had is that bear shifters have an amazing nose and could scent a mile away. However these guys don’t seem to be able to do that. For one they should have known that Kieran was a vampire but they don’t. Also what is Gus, the questions I have.

Other than that the story was pretty amazing. I got a kick out of Gus as always. The story had a serious tone to it but there was so much humor in it that it just made the story stand out. I love that about these stories. The characters were a big hit as well as the story.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on it. I can guarantee that it will be read many times over.

Blurb: ”Shane is my stepbrother; he’s family and strictly off-limits.”

Shane Prescott is a fun-loving omega with a knack for landing in trouble. He prides himself on efficiently running the waitstaff at his brother’s restaurant, Kamasouptra. Between his brother-slash-bestie, Keith, and his dog, Rocky, Shane doesn’t need anything else to make him happy. Love would be nice, but that ship sailed the day his mom married Keith’s dad.

Keith Anderson is focused on two things: making Kamasouptra the premiere place to dine in Hollydale and not giving into his feelings for his stepbrother. For the past several years, his life has been running smoothly to the point of being in rut. Keith’s life begins to change when an offbeat old lady befriends him and starts to make Keith think that it’s time to alpha up and chase what he really wants.

Between a smarmy food critic, April Fools pranks gone wrong, and two helpful old coots who dispense their unsolicited folksy wisdom to the brothers—you’ll be in stitches as you root for a pair of men who are so busy trying to follow societal expectations that they’re oblivious to the clear signs that maybe… just maybe… they were never meant to have a brotherly relationship in the first place. Things are about to change in major ways for this pair of stepbrothers, if they can just be brave enough to take a chance for happiness.

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

Shane and Keith have been friends since grade school and knew they loved each other. Then their parents met and married making them family. It stopped them from ever trying to get together or even let the other know how they truly felt. It took two goofy ghosts to help them along.

I was not really sure how I wanted this review to go. I do not really care for alpha and omega’s who never shift. It takes away from the paranormal side of things other than the fact that ghost show up and the omega’s can get pregnant. My main issues with this and it doesn’t have much to do with the book is something the author threw in to the story that drives me nuts. It shows that the author has issues with certain things and adds it in to the story. It was about reviews and readers making me not really want to even bother with the story. However that is just my issues but readers do buy their books so you get what I am saying.

Now as for the story itself the characters were quite quirky and I got a kick out of them both. I love how omega’s know they can get pregnant but never think it when they start getting sick. It actually makes it feel like you are knowing them quite well. I did notice that this story came off a lot better than the previous books. It didn’t feel rushed but well thought out and the story just seemed to pop out better.

I find that Tom is still my favorite out of all the characters and he is still the same sweetie as he was when we first see him. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the next book. I might even say that I can see myself reading this more than once.

Lisa’s Review: 💖💖💖 2 1/2 Hearts

Jason has dropped out and on the lookout for a boyfriend, he decides the perfect career will help him. He can take their photos and get a good look at the man candy while doing it. He falls head over heals for one, takes him out, and lets just say things don’t go the way he wants. Where as his cousin wants to get in and well you can see where that which direction that is going to go.

Jason is a whiny brat who needs to go back to adulting. He has the worst taste in boyfriends and might just cost him. The characters were interesting but they sounded like each other although Jason does have his own voice. However the other two were different people but the way the story was told, one would think they were the same guy. The dialog was off quite a bit.

The plot or what I had assumed was the plot started off pretty good, but then it lost it part way in. The story itself jumped characters which made me want to chuck it. It had no heat and no bite to it to make it stand out. The title alone would have me passing it by, boring as hell. To be honest when I started reading, I was thinking the book was going to just be a porn story. I was glad to find out that was not the case. However by the midway, I would have prefered the porn. Just to give it that spark. The story did have potential but it failed to deliver a top notch story. It was dull and made me not want to finish the story. It didn’t catch my attention like it should have and makes me want to avoid the next books. There was no spark to it, nothing to make it stand out. One one side Jason takes a chance after dropping out of school. However the other side was the fact that he did it hoping to find a boyfriend. It made me think that it was either being told by a teenager with raging hormones or a completely newbie writer.

Now on the plus side, I didn’t see too many grammar or spelling mistakes that one usually gets from an unknown author. The characters while not being separate, do have potential to change their direction. The pace was pretty even, but the jumping made the story hard to follow. This being the first book, it does give Jason a chance at growing into who he is suppose to be.

There was a lot to the story that was not needed. There is more in it that should have been cut out. There is great potential to be a top story however this particular book doesn’t deliver that. So as it is standing, this book was not for me.

Shorty’s Review: 💖💖💖 2 1/2 Hearts

I did not chose this book to review. I was asked to review it as a second opinion. The problem is I do not care for these types of stories myself but I read it anyway.

Jason really bugged me at times. I don’t know why he thought he’d find a boyfriend while at work or with models. His whole demeanor just rubbed me the wrong way. I liked the idea of the story but the actual delivery was a huge letdown. Jason needs to grow up so he borrows money and starts taking pictures of hot guys who model for him. A lot of these guys sounded similiar to one another and it was hard to connect with any of the characters in the story.

The story seemed long winded and drawn out when there was no need for it to be so I lost interest before the halfway mark but continued to read. Jason did begin to show signs of maturity. I kept thinking in my head he does know there is no such thing as perfect right? I really hate that word: perfect.

I’m sorry but this story was not for me.

Haus has an angel on his shoulders and is glad for it. Kevin seems to call him and get him out of danger each time. The only problem is he has no clue who the hell the guy is or how he is doing it. The guy is even better than Charlie and that is saying something.

Kevin is a damn good soldier but now he worked for Homeland Security looking for terrorist. Give the man a computer and he can find anyone and everyone. A few years ago Haus saved his life and he has decided to pay him back in fold. Or that was the way it started at first, now the man had his attention in different ways. When Kevin is kidnapped it is up to Haus and his guys to help him out. Maybe it was time to meet.

This has always been one of my favorite series out there. I always look forward to them coming out. The characters are always fascinating and lets face it, men with guns are a total turn on. Their cases or problems that seem to come at them are so well thought out that it feels like you are right there with them. This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I can guarantee that this book will be read many times over.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I would definitely recommend it and the previous books.

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

Mordechai talks Manny into taking in a roommate but he has a few issues with that. He likes his solitude and peace. He also likes his home clean and that was not what he got in the morning. It seems his roommate was just trying to fix something to eat and fell a sleep. It was a good thing his new roommate turned out to be his mate otherwise he would have sent his ass packing.

Nick’s parents were killed, his little brother was hooked up with a sexy man and his uncle was a drunk. He remembered when the man was a blessing but something happened and now all he did was drink. The aunt seemed to be of no help to them either. Now he was basically pawned off on another. No clue that they are mates until his little brother mentions it leaves him a bit off. However when someone breaks in and almost kills him, he is going to be glad for that mate.

I tried to figure out why the killer’s focus changed and what Mattias was up to however never really figured it out. The story felt really rushed and a few problems arise, however it is still a good story. I love how this author’s work always has humor mixed in with her stories. Makes for more of an interesting read. It did however still leave me with a few questions. I did like the idea of Nick using frying pan’s as weapons.

I do wish the author would tell us a bit more about the mothers problems and espionage. That sounds like it would be a great add in. Other than that it was a good read and I did enjoy it.

Blurb: Colin has been living half a life for the past twenty years, ever since his father caught him kissing William. Instead of standing up for their relationship, Colin allowed William to be thrown in jail and married the woman his father chose for him. He loves his two sons and even Justine, but they were never meant to be together, and they’ll never be truly happy as a couple. That suits Colin just fine because he doesn’t deserve to be happy. His son Brandon does, though, and when Colin’s father decides to arrange a marriage for him, Colin finds the courage he never thought he had and finally stands up to him.

A half-shifter created in a lab, Matt has been working undercover for the past fifteen years with very little time as his real self in between cases. When he gets shot and realizes he won’t be able to go back to his job, he’s surprisingly relieved. He’ll finally have time to be himself and to cultivate his relationship with the few friends he managed to make in between jobs. And best of all, he’s met his mate. Maybe now they can get to know each other and see what’s possible.

Things aren’t that easy, though. Even after Matt and Colin talk, Colin is still married, still guilt-ridden over the pain he caused William, and still terrified of his father. Justine finds her courage first and tells Colin it’s time for them to get divorced. He agrees—but can he overcome his terror and stand up for himself and his mate?

Review: Each story in the Council Enforcers 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 particular series is branched off from several other series featuring the same crossover characters in many of the books.

Colin has made several mistakes in his life but his biggest was when he lied and the man he was in love with was imprisoned. He was afraid of his father and most important, moving forward. He had been forced into marriage and having children, but now it was time to come clean. He had a mate, a male mate. A mate that had been created in a lab.

Matt was an enforcer and always went undercover to get the truth. That is until someone realizes who and what he was. So he needs to learn how to duck better. He was tired and ready for a change, and when that change includes his mate he is all for it.

I had never really liked Colin but his story is quite interesting and very entertaining. He definitely comes off as a wimp until the very end when he shows his strength. This story gave me almost everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. Danger, excitement, cranky teenagers, feisty soon to be ex-wives, some hot sexy times and well you can find out. I couldn’t put the book down and will admit that this story is one of those that will be read more than once.

I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

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

For the longest time all Martin knew was pain, destruction and death. His father was one evil he wanted to forget. He just couldn’t forget the ones that were in danger as well. He ran as fast as he could but in the end he couldn’t run fast enough. Now he was back to find out why one of the two men should want him dead had not killed him.

Tyler was a scientist tracking earthquakes in Montana. He had his eyes on a very sexy man who seemed to have pain etched onto his face. He wanted Martin to forgive himself as much as Martin wanted the others to forgive him.

This is one of those stories that you must read the previous books otherwise your a bit behind in the guys and their pasts. It had been awhile since I have read them so I was a bit slow on certain aspects of the story. It is a story filled with love as well as pain, tears as well as laughter and maybe some gold flakes. It is a very emotional story that will have you on the edge of their seats to find out what happens next. I can’t say that it is one of my favorite stories but it is a very good story with a lot of heart in it.

I will admit that this is not one of those stories that will be read more than once or twice. However it is a story that will have you remembering the good in your life. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to what the next story has going on. I would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: George Carver’s life changed forever in the span of twenty-four hours. He won a billion dollar lottery, but more importantly, the man sent to protect him turns out to be his mate. His very human mate. Luckily, Leon seems to know about shifters. He just doesn’t know anything about mates.

Leon de Oro spent several years as an Army Ranger before retiring to work for a friend in his security company. He never dreamed that he’d be sent on an assignment to protect the man of his dreams or that the bear shifter would claim they were fated to be together.

People will do stupid things for money. They’ll do really stupid things for a lot of money, and George had a lot of money. A billion dollar lottery win brings people—old and new—out of the woodwork. Leon has a hard enough time keeping George and his billions safe. Trying to decide if he’s ready to settle down with a mate might be impossible.

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

George is a big ass bear shifter who is seen as an alpha but feels that he is more like an omega. That is until he is protecting his mate. He has just won the big lottery that many wish they won, but in his heart he knew it would bring trouble to his door. His parents and old alpha basically treated him like trash and wasn’t allowed to enter another clan. Many alpha’s felt that he would challenge for their position never believing him when he told them that he never wanted that. An old military buddy of his uncle’s sent someone to protect him, he just hadn’t expected that man to be his mate.

Leon knew about shifters but was as human as one could be. He knew that from one look that he was going to fall hard for the sexy shifter he was going to protect. He just had not expected to be mated to the man after one hot night. He also knew he would protect the man with all he had in him. That much money brought all the nut cases straight into their path, but Leon was up to protecting his mate.

This series is a bit different than many of Stormy’s other books. It is a sweet romance where the big ass bear shifter has a heart of gold. To figure out what to do or how to act after winning the lottery is pretty much up in the air for me, but they seem to figure it out. In bear shifter clan’s they do not mate human’s but George does just that. He will also protect with a fierceness of a bear shifter. However in reality he is a gentle giant and sweet as can be. Although the alpha really needs to grow some when it comes to his family matters.

The writing comes off pretty good but it also seemed just a bit jumbled. Other than that issue I really enjoyed reading it and can guarantee that it will be read many times over. I loved the characters but Leon just didn’t hit any buttons with me. I will admit that George was the big hit with me and I can’t wait to see how he is in future books, or I hope I will. I had quite a bit of fun with it and look forward to the next story.

Dexter has a successful business, grooming pets. He owns his home, a plot of land by the lake, great family but the only thing he was missing was a man to come home to. The thing is, it just didn’t seem to matter with him. Then one emergency call and he finds himself the attention of twins.

Rocco and Dante have taken over their late uncle’s home and business. After find three cute kittens who had a little accident with some oil, they call in for some help. They had not expected the sexiest man to show up. And damn if they both didn’t know what to do but fall in love.

There is nothing more sexy then three men falling in love. They are the sweetest threesome you could come across. The problem was I didn’t see it. It came hard and fast, and it just felt off. The story just didn’t really catch my attention like it should have. It was cute and very sweet, the kittens were a great addition. I am not normally a fan of threesomes or even the brother part but it is still a cute story.

Other than my problems with the story it was an enjoyable read. I am afraid that this is not one of those books or series that will be read more than once. I will however keep my eye out for the next story.

Trey Duncan’s career as a Boston cop has taken an unearthly turn. He’s become embroiled in an alien war being fought on his planet. Each battle they win is a short-lived reprieve.

A hybrid of human and alien, the boy is both older and younger than he seems. To Trey, he remains a temptation he must resist.

Demi is a young man caught between two species and cultures. While his fathers have always kept a tight rein on him, he is starting to break away from their control. He knows what he wants, and from the moment he set eyes on Trey, he knew that the cop was the man for him. Since the last battle, he finally has hope that Trey feels the same way.

Biology forces both their hands, but Trey and Demi are still worlds apart in what they see as their future together. When their enemy’s legacy comes back to haunt them, it’s up to them to lead the way.

Trey is an ordinary human who is also a homicide detective. He came across a wild secret not too long ago and gave his word to help the aliens he befriended. The vampire’s were fighting a war that brought death and destruction to many. However there was one alien vampire that he wanted in more fun ways but felt that the kid was just to young. Boy is he in for a big surprise.

Demi is a hybrid, one of his fathers was human whereas the other was alien. He loved them with all his heart but damn if he couldn’t pull one over on them. He wanted the human cop to do more than just notice him. Leave it to his biology and his fathers to help move things along further. He must go through from boy to man stage with some hot sex. He might get what he desires more than life, that is if Trey will fall in line. Things are going to heat up.

This story has a dark tone to much of it but the way it is written just makes that part of the story even better. I think that this is probably one of the few series that can pull that off in a way that keeps my attention. The characters are quite entertaining but I must admit that I don’t really care for Trey like I should have. He is quite a bit older than Demi, but in reality he is actually younger by many years. The thing is Demi still looks like a teenager and it drives our detective crazy. Whatever just happened to getting your freak on. It does go deeper into some areas of the story that will fascinate the reader.

It is a very good story with quite a bit of action going on. Plus I liked the surprise in who the bad guy is. Very good plot and made the story rock. I had quite a bit of fun reading it and can’t wait to see what the next book has going on. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over.

Blurb: You can’t plan when you’ll fall in love—sometimes it just kinda sneaks up on you.

Todd Foxx was only looking to unwind from the stress of running The Sausage Shack when he went out for an evening of fun at The Big O. After he ended the evening by hooking up with a hot new alpha in town, he certainly never thought he’d see him again.

Hugo Keller left his high-profile job as a certified cicerone back east and moved across country to take a brewmaster job in Hollydale’s unique beer garden and sausage restaurant. A single dad, his only plans involved giving his young son a place to put down roots and focusing on his new job—even if it was a major step down from where he began. He certainly never expected to see his smoking hot one night stand again.

Can two men—and one precocious little boy—find a way to make a family? As Hugo and Todd slowly journey from lovers to coworkers to friends and back to lovers, they’ll need to deal with an ex-wife with boundary issues, a surprise pregnancy, and mysterious “mill girls” who like to giggle in the night.

There is a rule that should be followed, never mess around with someone you work with. That was one of Todd’s little rules, to bad he forgot it in one night. To be fair he had no clue Hugo was his newest employee, but it was a fun night. A night that left them with a little gift.

Hugo had been married once before and it left him with a cute little four year old that asked many, and I do mean many questions. One night with a sexy omega and damn his eyes if he doesn’t walk into work and see him. To his shock and surprise, it is his new boss. Things are going to get real interesting. That is if his nutty ex-wife could keep her word and the three little girls who keep showing up did not drive him crazy first. Wait till you find out who those girls are, or should I say what they are.

When I first started reading this series I had decided four books later to drop her off my reading list. There had been so much spelling and grammar wrong with them that left me not wanting to waste my time on them. Even though there is a lot of humor mixed in with just a bit of paranormal weirdness to keep me entertained. I had decided on this story to just give it one more chance and I was very surprised with it. Which now makes me want to read the four I did not read.

The puns were quite a blast to read even if the freaky ghost were a little out there. It does make a good Halloween type story though. I liked the characters and Tom is always a pleasure to have in a story. Now I am still not a fan of the paranormal aspect of a story that doesn’t actually have the men doing anything other than giving birth. They don’t shift or anything like that and it is a downside for me. Also the alpha and omega titles with human guys doesn’t really do for it either. That was actually my only issues with this story and I hate to say would continue to do so.

Other than that it was a pleasant surprise and I was glad to have taken the time to read it. I like the uniqueness to it, as I only know one other author who writes similar stories. I am sorry to say that it won’t be a type of story that will be read more than, oh a half a dozen times (laugh). I had a blast reading it and look forward to the next book.

Bears and honey are a mix made in heaven. Owen has not had the best of luck when it comes to jobs so after his disaster at the diner, well he called the number his old boss gave him. He didn’t really know much about cleaning a hotel room but damn if he wasn’t going to give it the old college try. New job with free rent what more could a guy ask for. Well the sexy man at the front desk. Haunted hotel, grumpy owners, crazy workers and it was going to be one interesting place to work.

Caleb is at the end of his rope. The hotel was going downhill, someone was screwing around with the property, and he wanted the sexy new housekeeper. All he has to do is to figure it all out. What is a bear shifter to do.

I saw a few issues with the story that drove me nutty. One of them was the fact that they were bear shifters but the only time you see it is after our sexy character started to run from Caleb. Other than that the story pretty much rocked. The characters were a hoot to read about and Gus was the winner in this series. I loved the EMF that Gus bought to search for ghosts. That kept me laughing. In fact that this series has a serious tone to it but it has an amazing amount of humor in it. That is one of the reasons this author is such a hit with me. I love reading a book that is going to have me in stitches.

This story was a blast to read and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I can guarantee that it will be one of those stories that will be read many times over.

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.

Review: Francis saves the day!! Dorran and Eli are having a few troubles in their relationship, but the love is going strong. Eli doesn’t want to bring Dorran over to is place and Dorran is trying to figure out what he is hiding from him. Secrets never go the way you want to, but wait till you find out what he is hiding. Trust me you will laugh your ass off. When Chris calls and tells Dorran that he is in big trouble, as in murder, well you can guess Dorran runs to help. Of course you can guess who tags along. Francis saves the day!! I will let you figure out that part.

I will say that I pretty much knew who the killer was, even without Francis’ help. However as always it was a pretty amazing story. It caught my attention and had me sitting on the edge of my seat the whole entire time. I absolutely love Francis, as you can probably guess. Ghost just keep me smiling. Now for a bit there I was ready to deck Eli, but once I found his secret, I basically called him a old softy. This story gives you action, danger and some fun hot sexy times with a bit of touchy feely from a ghost. I wonder if he does watch them when they are getting good.

I had a blast reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. This is one of those books that will be read more than once. And I can guarantee that you will be enchanted also. I would definitely recommend it.
