The person leaves flowers at his door, notes on his car, and he even snapped a picture of Abel and slid it under his door.

While tracking Bowen down, Caine ends up in Maple Grove and runs into a feisty little human. Demons don’t know who their mate is until they sleep with them, and Abel is on his menu. But can he keep his mate safe while the fake Caine racks up enemies who are determined to track the real Caine down and get their revenge?

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

Abel has a stalker. He just had no clue who it was. When Caine comes into the store things heat up. Too bad Caine is having a bit of trouble, and for a demon it could be deadly. He made the mistake of touching a chameleon shifter and things get wacky. Now the man is pretending to be him and seriously getting him into big trouble.

I was surprised at who Caine’s father is. Which actually makes Caine as deadly as ever. But when it comes to his mate, well you can guess. This story gives me almost everything I could ask for except for length. I get a good taste then the happy ending shows up. I just wished it would be a bit longer so I get more. I liked the characters quite a bit but really didn’t feel the connection these two had. It was just a bit to fast for me.

Overall it was still pretty dang good and I can honestly say that I would read it more than once. I can’t wait to see what the next story will be like.

Tortured and punished for thousands of years, Gavril was nothing short of bitter and broken. He wouldn’t know love if it walked up and slugged him on the jaw. That was until a sweet little doctor risked his life to help Gavril. Now Ari was all Gavril thought about, all he craved. With overzealous angels out to kill him, Gavril knew it was time to stop running and fight. But his biggest fight of all was learning how to love the most important person in the world to him.

Review: Each book in the Maple Grove collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc I would suggest reading them in sequential order. This series is connected to the Brac Pack, the Brac Pack Next Gen, Brac Village, Zeus’s Pack, Christian’s Coven, Demon Warriors and a few others. For a better understanding of this amazing world I would suggest start with the first book in the Brac Pack collection.

Ari loved what he did and the help he could give. He loved traveling and enjoying his patients. Then he lost a bit when his ex turned out to be worse then evil. He left his life behind to start a new one in Maple Grove. He was still a damn good doctor but he had lost a bit of himself. Now here he was helping a very grumpy and drunk man who didn’t seem to want his help.

Gavril is an angel and has lost his way, so to speak. He loved the humans he looked over but many angels saw it as wrong. Angels are not the good that they stand for but can be worse then humans when it came to bigotry. They held him prisoner for thousands of year and tortured him every second of every day. His escape led him to the one man that might give him hope, his mate.

I liked these guys quite a bit. I was hoping that this author would throw in angels after awhile. So it was a nice surprise and I truly enjoyed their story. Like most of this authors work there is quite a bit of action and danger mixed in with a bit of humor to make it flow better. I always did like a story that had quite a bit of humor in it and this one had it. I enjoyed seeing some of the old gang back from previous stories.

I had a blast reading it and can guarantee that it is one of those stories that will be read many times over.

Review: Each book in the Maple Grove collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc I would suggest reading them in sequential order. This story is connect to the Brac Pack series, which has many branched off series.

Jude is a sweet heart of a vampire. He has not had an easy life. He had almost been killed twice and one of those times was by his own uncle. He had killed that asshat but now his family wanted him dead. When a friend asks him to hang out with him, it leads him to someone he had not expected, his mate.

Reese is a rhino shifter who like many rhino’s has a temper but manages to keep it down. It would seem his mate had a way of driving him crazy though. What neither expected was Jude to become pregnant.

Pretty interesting story going on with this one. I have always liked reading this author’s work and have not been let down. It always has a serious tone to it but there is so much humor in it one would not expect it. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a blast reading it and look forward to reading the next story. I can guarantee that it will be read many times over.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Calhoun was working for the Ultionem but needed a very long break from it all. He could still remember the bodies in their cages. He needed a change of pace from it all. Seeing his brother had him finding his mate. A mate that was human and had no clue of what was creeping in the dark.

Roy had went out and got stinking drunk then woke up to the sexy bartender. To bad he was still a virgin, it could have been nice. What was not nice was the creeps coming out. To learn he was a mate was shocking but not as shocking as what danger was coming.

Slow and easy read with characters that were quirky as hell. Their world sounds pretty cool if not dangerous. However the fact that even though it does give you the happy ending, it just cuts out. It was to short for my liking and there was so much more that could have been added to make this story stand out. It felt very rushed and made me feel like I was missing so much.

Over all I have always loved reading stories by this author, but the way the stories are being told leave a lot to be desired. There is so much potential in it but the story fell short. Other than that I still enjoyed reading it.

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 branched off from many other series and I would suggest starting with book one in the Brac Pack collection.

Jet is fae but not just any kind of fae, but Unseelie. They are the darkest and most evil of the fae, however Jet is not like the rest of his family. There were many rules and one of them is they can never leave the realm. However he always goes to see his cousin who was in hiding once a month. So lets face it it was not his fault that he was caught and abducted.

Raven has found his mate. He had not expected the young man to show up to be his mate but then again he hadn’t known that he was not human either. When the young man fainted he took him to the one place where a human should go when injured but of course he runs with him as soon as he saw his cute ears.

He just has a few problems going on. Someone wanted his mate, his father wanted him to lead the pack and well just guess.

These stories have been going on for so long that they are starting to resemble each other in parts. The problem is that they are just getting rehashed in similar ways. However it is still quite entertaining and I do enjoy the humor that you can find in them. The characters are quirky and funny as hell in parts of it. There is danger mixed in the story to give you that little bite. I was glad to see some of the old characters from the beginning show up to give it a bit of a push.

Other than my own issues with the story it is still a good read.

Reviewer: Lisa

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.

Reviewer: Lisa

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.
