Review: It as a day of many bad surprises, okay maybe not all of the surprises were bad. Jericho overheard his uncle and another planning to bury a body. He has also found his mate, and man is the man not sex on a stick. His very male mate and boy did he not want to tell his uncle. He was afraid that the man would get on his motorcycle and run away as fast as he could.

Ben and his best friend needed to take a break from riding. But his luck has changed, he has found out that the sexy bunny shifter is his mate. A mate that is definitely freaking out. To find out that Jericho’s uncle was the one that hurt him but also the dead body, well Ben wasn’t going anywhere.

You have a small town with noisy neighbors walking in, someone always stealing your food, pretty cool characters and danger in these stories. The problem was that they are following pretty much the same pattern. Big wolf shifter, small bunny shifter, danger and so on is just a bit to used for me to truly love the story. Other than that though it is still entertaining.

I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading the next book.

Review: Steven is a sweet innocent young man and had the best brother ever. When his mother was pregnant with him she had been using and it left him a little bit slow. His brother always watched out for him. However when a man asked him out after some ice cream his little life was about to get more interesting.

Derek owned most of the town but never truly flaunt it. He had an idiot for an ex that seemed to want him back and a weasel for a cousin. Now he has found his mate. He is falling in love but danger is just around the corner.

I really liked the characters quite a bit but the story felt like it was lacking something to make it stand out. It had the same old ex who wanted revenge or his man back theme which is a bit old to me. However other than that it was pretty good and I can see it being read many times over.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Maple Grove 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 one of the cutoff series and I would suggest starting with book one in Brac Pack.

Grayson has been beaten by a lion shifter and two demons, found out that there were indeed more than human’s out there, found out that he had a bear shifter as a mate. To top that off he was now the sheriff of their little town, to bad he had not wanted the job. Now someone was destroying other peoples property and a murder has been committed.

Moose was a bear shifter who loved his sweets. He has found his mate and getting through the man’s hard head was difficult. However they are mates. He was going to keep his mate safe and if that meant following the man, getting in his way and helping with the case, well so be it. This is going to be fun to watch.

This is one of those series that you need to read another series to figure out what was going on prior to the book. Moose might eat you out of house and home, but he is as sweet as his deserts. I love the characters that this author comes up with . They are a blast to read and there is quite a bit of humor with them. This is a world that I would love to be a part of what with the crazy family these guys have.

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