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.

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.

Mordechai sees how happy his youngest brother is and wants that same connection Malachi shares with his mates. What he got instead were a load of problems. Not only is David’s home life a dysfunctional mess, but Mordechai’s isn’t any better.

All David wants is a peaceful life. With his parents death, it left him and his older brother living with his uncle. An uncle that drank his life away and an aunt that came over but isn’t truly any help. To top it off his brother feel guilty and in pain most of the time. Then he meets Mordechai and his life might be looking up.

Mordechai is a panther shifter and he just wants what his brother has found, a mate. Too bad someone seems to be after him, but he has no clue why. You learn more about his parents but not too much. His father was murdered and there’s not a lot of information on that. Then there is an older brother who is an asshat. Top that off with a equally rotten mother and his family might just be screwed up as David’s. Although he does have three brothers that are pretty sweet and hot.

Put that together with an agency searching for them and you don’t find out much more than that. Nor does the story explain why Mordechai was singled out by the agency. This story felt rushed and left me with questions. To top it off the mating usually gets a bit of discussion with the mate, but there wasn’t too much of that going on. The story had quite a bit of action and danger in it plus some hot sexy times.

I found a few issues in the story but not enough to take away from the story. I enjoyed it and will see what the next story has going on.

Blurb: Christmas isn’t always a joyous time of year. Not according to Robbie. After suffering a devastating loss a few years ago, he wants nothing to do with the holiday. Too bad he can’t simply escape Christmas, but fate has other plans.

Abner loves everything about Christmas, but his excitement is hampered by Robbie’s sour mood. He’s at his wits’ end on how to cheer Robbie up—until they’re splashed by freezing water while trying to cross the street. Abner is livid, ready to tell the driver off. Instead, he stares at the second most gorgeous man he’s ever met.

Malachi ran into town for errands, unknowingly heading right toward his mates. He’s baffled that Robbie and Abner have been together for weeks, and Abner is clueless about mates. When a rogue terrorizes the town and a deer starts stalking Robbie, it’s up to Malachi to set the holiday right and show his men that sometimes three is better than two.

To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Three mates in an action packed story is what you get to enjoy. Malachi is a panther shifter, Abner is a human and Robbie is an impala. Mix that in with Christmas and a magic reindeer and watch out for some fun times. Robbie and Abner are the first to meet but Robbie has kept the fact that he is a shifter from Abner. So imagine Abner’s surprise when they meet Malachi and finds out that humans are not as alone as he thought.

However a few problems are in store for them. For one Robbie hates Christmas with a passion, talk about a scrooge. Then there is the fact that a rogue shifter is out there, well they are going to need that reindeer’s help to make Christmas perfect.

The rogue shifter was not truly explained on why they couldn’t get their hands on him and how he escapes them. Where this story was pretty cool it just didn’t have the impact that I would have expected from it. It felt rushed and was missing some good parts to it. The reindeer was a funny character he wasn’t truly as outstanding that I have found in other stories. The whole story just lacked as much excitement that I would have wanted to see.

Other than those few issues with the story I did enjoy reading it quite a bit.

Corey flees an abusive situation and ends up in Brac Village. However he seems to only have bad luck. He can’t find a place to stay for one. That is until he overhears someone who needs a new roommate. Things might just be looking up especially when he even lands a job.

Jake has been assigned to find the man who killed an innocent. He joins the police department in Brac Village and has the luck of finding an apartment right across from his nephew and his mate. He knows that one of the killers had been a cop that had been killed not too long ago, but to him everyone at the station might just be the other killer. He must protect his mate and in comes the surprises with this one.

I enjoyed the humor mixed in with the seriousness of the story. The characters are quite enjoyable and sweet, or at least Corey is. Jake is a bit like the cop down the street, hard headed and strong. I like that the story is full of action, excitement and entertaining. However it felt rushed which has been a pattern with the last few books by this author that I have been reading.

Other than my issues with the story it was an enjoyable read it and I look forward to the next book.

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 them in sequential order. Although with this story your looking at four men mating.

Colton hated vampires and now he was their leader. Here he was a wolf shifter in charge of a coven that killed his little brother. To top it off he had not one, not two but three mates. Triplets that were all vampires.

I like Colton from the previous stories however I didn’t care for this story. It was harder to get into for one and then there was the fact that he was turned into a vampire without permission. The story was not as engaging as most of this author’s work has been. I just couldn’t get my head into it. I am not a fan of this many mates in one mating. It just comes off poorly to me. The story itself felt rushed and I didn’t care for the vampires at all.

I hate to say it but this story just didn’t draw me in as it should have and makes me want to stray from anymore of this series. However I have not left a series unread in awhile so we will see what the next one has going for it.

Review: Each book in the Demon Warriors 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 series is connected to the Brac Pack, Brac Village, Zeus’s Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Gen, and several more. I would start with book one of the Brac Pack to begin with.

Trey has had the strangest dreams, dreams he remembered. Not all were sex dreams or just plain weird, but also as his best friend would say they were biblical. The end of the world. He has the best of parents and a great best friend, but life was not always fun. He was always bullied and belittled, so he kept his prize possession in tact. That is until the most gorgeous man showed up at work, then popped out and Trey is certain he is going to need a shrink to explain.

The Keeper or Aldric is the creator of everything. Too bad he no longer had control over the first demon he created, and the damn thing bit him. He has had the poison flowing through his system for over two years and now he was in dire need. Maybe he should have gone to Maverick’s the first go around. Now he needs to get the cure, catch those who have escaped, and have sexy times with the man who has turned out to be his mate. A mate that he had never expected.

This series is one of my favorites from this author. I actually love it and the books that are connected to it. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. It gives you action, excitement, adventure, danger and some hot sexy times plus so much more. The characters are unique and fresh to read about and they always keep you on the edge of your seat. Whether that is because you love them or want to smack them, I haven’t figured out yet.

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

He hasn’t the first clue why someone took him, until a stranger is tossed into the cage next to him. Frightened, Austin reaches out and is soothed by the man’s deep voice. After Holton rescues him from the lab, Austin’s life is never the same. They have to keep moving, staying one step ahead of those who hunt them, but what started out as a terrifying situation turns into hot nights with his dragon warrior.

When Holton is recaptured and returned to the lab, he curses Alric for being led astray. If his leader hadn’t fallen for Tristan, Holton wouldn’t be in this situation. But a small voice in the dark sends his heart skyrocketing, and Holton will risk everything to free Austin, unaware just how much the man will change his life.

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

Holton was lied to and experimented on along with his teammates. His leader had honestly thought what they were going to do was not what they went through. They escaped and his leader found his mate. Holton has lost faith not only in his leader but other things. Then he was recaptured after trying to save Alric’s mate’s family. A family they didn’t even have.

Austin had been abducted right off the street after work. Now he had no clue what was going on and the man in the cell right besides him could be an ass. However what an ass he has. It would seem when they escape that he will follow that man anywhere. That is until he shows him his new and deadlier side. It would seem Holton was now a dragon. Well light a fire under Austin’s butt.

Great and new type of story in a way, but in another it isn’t. It is a unique type of story because the men are human who are turned into dragon shifters. Now how they could do that who knows. Anyway, they seem to act strangely and not very military, so they come off a bit odd to me. It is a very action pact and danger filled story with a bit of sexy times going on. However there are parts to the story that are missing and some that really should have been left out. For one, in book one a human newspaper writer sneaks into a top-secret lab so easily and then gets out. Too flimsy for me. In this book, there was two small humans who save the dragons from getting taken back. Dragon’s that should have shifted out the drug, whereas the humans just knew. Still a bit off.

Over all the book is a good read, however it is not one of my favorites from this author. I was a bit disappointed in it.

His curiosity piqued, Tristan investigates, only to find a secret lab with torturous experiments being conducted. He hatches a plan to set the men free, not knowing the beasts he would unleash. And the scariest of them all has his sights set on Tristan.

Alric had been fooled into signing a contract, unknowingly sealing his fate. He was stuck in a cage, being sliced and diced until he was no longer wholly human. He never thought he’d see the light of day again, until a cute little journalist stuck his nose in where it didn’t belong. Now free, Alric and his team plan to exact revenge on those who imprisoned them. What Alric hadn’t planned on was falling in love.

Review: Alric thought he had been doing the right thing and his men followed him. They trusted him and it placed them in the hell hole they were stuck in now. Treated like animals even though they started out human has turned them into animals, dragons to precise. They were beaten, tortured and experimented on. Their fates were a given, that is until Alric smelled the best thing ever.

Tristan is nuts. He is an amazing journalist doing stories no one would ever do. It has led him into many dangerous situations and has now landed him in Iowa. Iowa where nothing ever happens. He was here because he did a piece on the cartel and now he had a price on his head. So what does his dumbass do, he finds something to get into. A building in the middle of no where with more security then should ever be needed, unless they were up to no good. What it gets him is one sexy man who can turn into a dragon, plus his men, and lets not forget more danger.

Dagner filled, excitement guaranteed, action packed, adventure and some hot sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story. It was definitely different then many of this author’s other work. I was quite shocked at the difference but was pretty amazed by it. I am not really sure about the characters, and their actions leave some crazy ideas. Tristan is a pretty brave man but he acts not like he is. He is a fascinating character and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Now the downside to the story is it leaves you hanging, big time.

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

However with this series, I would start reading Brac Pack first. It will lead you into Christian’s Coven, Zeus’s Pack, Demon Warriors and so forth. This is one action packed adventure.

Robbie and Abner have been mated just a few weeks, however Robbie has been hiding a secret from Abner, or so he thinks. He is an impala shifter. It is almost Christmas time, but to Robbie that is one day away from hell. Abner however loves the holiday and whats more he loves Robbie. He is a human living in a paranormal world, although he only thinks bear shifters exist. His eyes are about to be open to a lot more, especially when Malachi shows up.

Malachi is a panther shifter and he has found his mates, two of them, who would have thought. Although it was not the best of meeting them since he drenched them with muddy water. Things are going to get crazy, especially since a deer is stalking Robbie and there is a rogue on the loose.

As always Lynn has done an amazing job with this story. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. Although Kota will be begging Blair’s forgiveness. As always this is a world I would love to live in. Sexy men who turn into shifters, crazy mates, danger and excitement and hot sex is just a bit of what you get with this story. I had a blast reading it and can not wait to get my hands on the next book.

Review: Each book in Christian’s Coven collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. With this series I would suggest reading Brac Pack first, which also branches off to this series as well as Brac Village, Zeus’s Pack, Demon Warriors and so forth.

There is nothing better then a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Lynn can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Lynn. There is something about the way that Lynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

Gavino is one of the hard ass vampires, that goes out and kills those that have gone rogue. He has a dark side to him. When he rescues a fairy from one of those rogues, he is shocked to find out the man is his mate. A mate that turns out to be an Unseelie. Unseelie’s are considered evil and dark, so much so Panashai put someone as a watch dog to make sure they never came into their realm. No one expected the watch dog to hate fairies. Going to get real interesting.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the other’s in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Lynn puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

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

Review: Each book in Brac 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. What is really amazing about this series is that it has several that are branched off from this series and will give you one hell of a good time.

There is nothing better then a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Lynn can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Lynn. There is something about the way that Lynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives. I had a blast reading this story. This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break.

Cecil is bored out of his mind. All the children have left home and he is feeling that there is nothing left. That is until he takes a walk and finds a small child in a snow drift. He wants this little boy, but Maverick is being all adult and says they must find Khaos family. The thing is Khaos parents were killed and his brother is looking for him. So is the man who wants them both dead.

Shadow had to watch his parents being murdered by their leader. Now his little brother was missing and he has no idea what to do. At least he knows where to look. In looking, it leads him to his mate. A jaguar shifter who is a deputy. To get the whole taste, just read this book. However Johnny wants a kid, and it looks like he is going to drive them all crazy, right along with Cecil.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the other’s in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Lynn puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

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

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

Kenny was left with his grandfather when he was a small child and never saw them again. He loved his grandfather something fierce. The only other person that he loved was his best friend, a feisty fox shifter, pretty much a twin to him. He knew about the paranormal world but damn he had not counted on the smelly rotton flesh of the feeder that snuck into his house. Nor the sexy wolf shifter who claimed to be his mate.

Rider is a hard ass but when he sees his mate being attacked by a feeder, lets just say his primal man attitude definitely came out. He is not an alpha, but when his mate is in danger it all comes out. Now if only he could figure out what to do with the old man and fox, he would be doing great.

I sure hope that Felix gets a feisty mate of his own, he is definitely a cutie pie. I loved that Kenny’s grandfather didn’t bat an eye when he was taken from is home nor the wolf shifters surrounding him. This was funny as hell, exciting to read and sexy to boot. I had a kick out of the world these guys lived in, and just want to teleport myself there. Danger surrounds them all, and if they don’t have any other problems, all would be good. Oh wait, the mayor.

I would definitely read this again and recommend it to all.

After finding out about the paranormal world and seeing his best friend give birth, Corky does the only thing he knew how to do, he ran. He was a human who was a mate to an alpha wolf and there was no way in hell he was going to give birth. The truth was it wasn’t just that that had him running but he would keep that to himself.

Jesse was the alpha of his pack and he was going to spank that mate of his. Hunting him down and bringing him back to the pack is the best thing he should do, but that mate of his is about to get a spanking. To top it off the feeders are coming out in town and Corky’s parents are causing discord for his little man. What what happens next, oh that would be the sheriff.

The blurb needs a bit of work to it, or I should say editing done there. I have always loved this author’s work and I have a feeling that will never change. The worlds she creates is full of hot sexy men, danger, excitement, adventure and well you get the picture. It is a fascinating world that is definitely well rounded and exciting. I didn’t really care for Jesse but he is alpha all the way. Corky definitely deserves any spanking he gets, but you can also see that he needs the loving even more.

I had a lot of fun with this story and can’t wait to get started on the next book.

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 the series in sequential order. With this story I would actually start with the Brac Pack series. There are many series that are branched off from it.

Lynn Hagen was one of the first authors of m/m romance that I have read. Her stories evolve around shifters who are the alpha types with mates that always call to them. They will do everything in their power to protect those around them, but will be taken down at the knees by their little mates. Her stories have an energy to them that always seems to lighten a person’s day. The are entertaining, funny as hell, exciting with a bit of danger to them and the sex is mega hot.

Gary lives with his grandmother when his mother passed away. He had a lot of secrets that he held, but the worst was his deadly father hidden in the attic. When someone tried to break in to their home, Gary and his grandmother go to the police for help. A sexy detective is not what he had expected.

Richard had once been working for the government who was going after Manny and his brothers. Now that his superior was the one behind it all, he has left that side of life behind. Working for the police department in Brac Village was something new. So when his mate walks in with a story of robbery he decides to help. It leads him to many more dangerous creatures then himself. And many more surprises.

I have a blast reading these stories and that hasn’t changed. The connection that is seen with the characters is always a nice surprise, for instance’s Mavericks feelings for the old lady was a nice one. Although you never really do find out why that is.

I enjoyed the story quite a bit and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

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

What is better then two sexy men getting it on, well you guessed it three. Welcome to a hot and tempting ménage. Max rescued Cory when he was a teenager and basically finished raising him. Cory had been abused by his father and needed a gentle hand. Which Max doesn’t really have. Things change for both of them and the explosion is about to hit. Then you add in one sexy millionaire who has had a taste of Cory, and things are going to heat up. To bad Max is closed off and Seoul has never been in love before. It is going to be an interesting run.

I wasn’t to sure about Cory and the guys at first. Just couldn’t figure out how he was going to get them all together but hey Lynn surprised me again. The heat and connection plus add in the passion and damn it was one sweet read. It wasn’t perfect but it ended pretty good. I can’t say this one would be my favorite of the series but it was still a good book.

I enjoyed reading this story and can not wait to get my hands on the next book. I also loved the danger and excitement, but really would have love to watch that beating jackal getting his just rewards. Guess will have to wait and see what happens. I had a lot of fun and can guarantee that you will too.

I would definitely recommend this book.

Review: Each book in the Dark Knights 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 series is actually one of the branch off of the Brac Pack and several others so I would suggest starting with the first book in the Brac Pack.

Caleb’s brother Jacob had been killed in a car bombing that was meant for his boss. He wanted answers and decided at the funeral was time to get those answers. To bad he didn’t actually have the guts to go up to the man, just follow him for hours in his car.

Raven knew right off the bat that he had been followed by not one but two vehicles. The first one was definitely noticed. The kid was not made for it, but he still needed answers. What he found was his mate. To bad the hunters found out about Caleb, because he will kill anyone who comes after him.

The first thing I am going to say is that I hope that Jacob isn’t dead but that is just a wish. This story was pretty cool and I enjoyed reading it. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. The characters made it rock, although in a way it does leave you hanging. Which means I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

Review: Each book in the Dark Knights collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. In this case you should start with the original series “ Brac Pack”. That introduces you into this amazing world, and is cut off in to many different series. So a lot more reading in your future.

Lynn Hagen was one of the first m/m romance authors that I came across and knew that she would be a favorite of mine. Her stories are funny as hell but do have a underlining of serious attitudes. In this case, Declan killed a hunter and was caught by the local police, the human police. Now he was in trouble, and leave it to the one lawyer he hates to be the one to rescue him. To top it off the man is his mate.

Saul is pretty much in agreement wit Declan. He can’t stand the loud mouth, but there was something about him that turns him on just as fast. Now to find out what deep and dark secret his mate is hiding from him. Well that is after they find out who is trying to kill them.

I get a crack out of these books. There is a serious tone to parts of it, but humor out matches it. I love the characters and how they seem to be able to stand up to their rough and snarky mates. Their mates will kill any and all just to protect them. I had a lot of fun reading this and can not wait to get my hands on the next book.

This series is a branch off from several series, starting with Brac Pack. This includes Brac Pack, Brac Village, Christian’s Coven, Zeus’s Pack and many more.

Joelle had basically led a boring life. He loved to read and hang out with his mother. He was still that way, well till Ryan dragged him out. To bad Ryan’s best friend was a bit prickly. Then he met Kivani and his life is about to get a bit more exciting, but he wasn’t really a person who like excitement. Kivani is going to have his hands full.

Kivani, like the other knights, had led a nasty past life. On top of that he was also keeping a secret, his cousin was a hunter. Kivani is an assassin who kept the paranormal’s and their mates safe. Now he has a sexy mate, and danger just keeps on a coming.

Lynn Hagen was one of the first m/m romance authors that I started reading and actually kept on reading. The characters are fully developed and damn hot. They are alpha males with sexy little mates that have had their own problems. They are action packed with quite a bit of danger in them, but don’t worry there is some hot sexy time also.

I loved this book but I knew I would before reading it. This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I had a blast with it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.

I loved this book but I knew I would before reading it. I am not a fan of the series name, but it only took me to the third book to remember where it came from.
