Blurb: He thought his mate would never come back. He was wrong.

Jack Harrington told everyone who asked that he’d gotten over Connor a long time ago. And while he still hasn’t managed to convince himself, he moves on with his life. He doesn’t have a choice. Connor is gone for good.

Or is he?

Connor Warden didn’t plan to ever come back to Harrington Hills, but with an infant in tow, that is exactly what he does. His daughter needs a pack and he is going to give it to her.

When Jack and Connor’s lives literally collide again, will they be able to go back to what had been and find their connection once more? Or is the divide between them too deep to ever fully get over?

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

 Connor and Jack had something back when they were kids, but then Connor decided he really didn’t want to live in Harrington Hill’s any longer.  It had broken Jack’s heart and left him reeling.  He had always thought Connor was his mate, but now he didn’t know heads or tails.  Now that Connor was back and with a baby in tow, he was thrown for a loop.  

Connor loved his mother but when she passed, things got tough with his father.  He wanted out and away from the man, even if it meant leaving Jack behind.  He had not known to even ask the man if he wanted to go with him, he just ran.  Then a one night stand left him with a daughter and he knew he had to go home.  

Things between these two are strange but how it is actually told leaves quite a bit out.  It felt like something was missing from the story.  Even with that being said, it is still an enjoyable read.  The build-up between these two actually goes smoother than one would expect and maybe that was what was wrong.  There was no arguing or letting his feelings really come out with Jack.  I think that it went too easy for Connor and even though he wasn’t a bad wolf, it just didn’t roll like I wanted it to.  It did give me an ending that was close to perfect, it just felt off.  Other than my issues with it, the story is a fun one.  

I enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to see what the next book will bring, or at least I hope there is another story coming.  It would be great to see what is going to happen with the guys in the future.

Blurb: Dating a younger guy wasn’t anywhere in Zack’s plans, but can he ignore the instincts of his wolf?

Zack Harrington noticed David Dewitt the first time the guy showed up in Harrington Hills, but their first meeting was far from perfect. A few months later Zack still can’t forget about him, and now when the two of them belong to the same pack, their paths cross even more. The problem is, David is barely twenty-two and Zack still remembers how stupid he was at that age.

David knows he’s young, but he’s tired of hearing about it all the time. He’s not a kid and he hates being treated like one, even—or especially—by the hot deputy sheriff. But as they get to know each other better and the sparks between them turn hotter, David’s willing to leave that behind.

Can they move past the age difference and their own personal hang-ups?
Or will they ultimately fall into a trap of miscommunication and hiding?

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

I have been reading romance and paranormal’s for over 30 years and can honestly say that I love a good paranormal romance more than any other kind of story.  It was not until 5 years ago that I started read m/m romance stories.  There is just something about them that pulls me in faster than any other story.  Now usually there is fighting and danger, so this story was peaceful and really different.  If it wasn’t for the fact that they did change shapes in the story I would have believed it to be a contemporary story.  So it was a nice change to the same old, same old.

Zach is about eight years older than David, and he sees that a relationship between them might not be so good.  But damn he just can’t keep his eyes off the man.  Ever since he came into town with his brother to join the pack, he has been staring at the man.  Now in this one there is no talk about fated mates or mate’s period.  Well there is but not the way one would expect.  Zach is a tough cop in a small town that is surrounded by werewolves and humans.  They seem to co-exist like any other town.  So he has to figure out what to do with his attraction to the sexy wolf.

David is very young, and has been given a hard time with it by his brother, his bosses and customers.  However now he is the boss and he is still being treated like the kid.  Even the deputy is doing it, but damn David wants that man.  So read the story if you want to see what happens with these two men.

This story is perfect for when you are trying to take a break or when you just need the sun to shine for you. 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 can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over.

I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

Blurb: Pretending to date the guy he has a crush on? Kevin’s sure he’s heading for a disaster. A broken heart, at least.

Kevin has been a lone wolf almost his entire life and he’s comfortable with that. Now that he no longer works for the guy he hated, Kevin has only one problem—his crush on his neighbor and best friend.

Taylor is the Alpha’s Son, the heir to the Harrington Pack. He left his hometown and moved to San Francisco as a rite of passage, but it was always temporary, since his place is in Harrington Hills with his pack. Now Taylor is heading back home for a wedding and since his mother is threatening to set him up if he comes alone, he needs a date. Asking Kevin to be his pretend boyfriend sounds like a perfect solution.

What happens when they arrive in Harrington Hills and learn to see each other in a different light? With their relationship changing, can they drop the act and realize that what they have is real?

Review: I have read a couple of books by this author and I have been amazed at the worlds she creates, plus how the characters just seemed to be in tune with each other. One always says that falling in love with your best friend will make for the best relationships, and in this story it seems to continue to stand. This is a very sweet and charming little love story, and when you add in the paranormal characters then it is a bonus. I loved the friendship that these two have, and how their attraction was slow burning until they couldn’t stand it any longer.

Taylor has to go home to his pack for a wedding, but once more his mother states that if he doesn’t have a date she was going to set him up. His mother was the alpha and of course he said yes. The problem was he had no clue since he wasn’t dating. So he decided to ask his best friend. Taylor was in for a surprise.

Kevin has been attracted to Taylor from the start, but they were best friends so he never made a move. Now Taylor is asking him to the wedding, boy was this going to be fun. Two weeks with the man he wants and nothing happening. Should I say that is what he thinks, it would seem these two were meant to be together.

I look forward to reading more by this author and cannot wait to get my hands on book two. It was entertaining and I had a lot of fun reading it. It is a definite perfect read and I would recommend it.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: When a powerful senators son and an environmentalist meet in college sparks flew and not the good kind. Whenever Derek and Haydon were together they argued, then one day things seemed different when Derek agreed to cover a story for the school paper,

Then for some unknown reason to Hayden Derek buried the story and their feelings as well..12 years later the sparks are still there.

This story had a great premise as a second chance story. I was a bit disappointed to find out that their meeting in college wasn’t romantic. Where the story had lots of good points I would have liked more focus on the Earthquake. Also it was mentioned a few times that Derek once was a fireman he had a scar but then nothing was told as to what happened.

It is a good story with a quick pace. I wanted to keep reading to see if Derek and Hayden got together and what their backstory was. The paragraph of their first kiss had me weak in the knees.

If you like stories about Natural disasters, Earthquakes, reporters, environmentalists and a pretty sweet romance with some moderate man-sex this is for you.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: When I first came across this book all it took was the title. I didn’t even bother looking at the blurb. Which turned out to be a big mistake. There is no action and it is a very slow love story. I was disappointed in this book. It however is a great story with characters that will draw you in.

However it just dwindled along and did not give me a desire to read it again. I want a story that is going to draw me in and keep my attention the whole time I am reading. This was predictable. I knew what was going to happen even before reading the next chapter. They don’t argue, there is no tension but a little bit about pictures and there was nothing there that was jumping out at me.

Sam was a politician’s favorite man. He had helped them get into office. However the man he worked for was retiring. He wasn’t sure what he would do from then on. On a night out to think, he meets a sexy seal. Then to his luck one of his favorite politician’s wants him to help her win the President spot. Here he was starting a new relationship and he was hardly ever there.

Blake wanted Sam and it would seem his daughter wanted the same thing. It would take some getting used to but it sure is hard being away from his lover. He had to remember his time serving and how his parents were with it, and then use that strength for his relationship with Sam.

It is a very good story with tender touches, long kisses and some hot sex. The thing is there is not a lot of sex in this, which is disappointing in one. Then it just flows in one direction with no attitude to it. The title is hot but misleading, which shows me to always look at the blurb. I would recommend this if you are for love stories, tender moments, and cute kids.

I hope that the next book has some action, danger or something in it to keep my attention.

Blurb: Former lovers meet again in Sochi and have a chance to learn that a gold medal isn’t the greatest prize you can win at the Olympics.

After the knee injury, Liam O’Connor, the former gold medalist, is no longer able to compete in the Olympics. He’s in Sochi as an assistant coach for another male figure skater and hopes to avoid Eric Lanney as much as possible. Meanwhile Eric is back to compete for gold in pair skating, but is that the only thing that will be important to him? Maybe when the former lovers meet again in Russia, they will both learn that a gold medal isn’t the greatest prize you can win at the Winter Olympics.

Review: This was yet another story that broached the issue of same-sex love and the controversy that brewed with the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. This story however had another layer which added a wealth of rich meaning to what it really means to accept who you are despite what the world may think or what you think you need to do in order to achieve your goals and dreams.

Eric and Liam were lovers,who broke up because one of them could not deal with the pressure of being in a gay relationship while pursuing their sport. When Liam loses his ability to compete and must find a new life for himself, he must deal with that personal anguish. He must then also deal with the relationship he had which ended badly and still has never been truly resolved. Eric on the other hand must fight his own personal demons and determine for himself what is most important to him if he is to be truly happy.

This story when measured against the backdrop of the Sochi issue, which required gay men and women to not be true to themselves in order to compete at a world-class level provides a very humbling dichotomy and throws equality back some fifty years. Layering Eric and Liam’s relationship and what broke them up in the first place and their being able to find each other again and accept their new reality, how they feel and have always felt about each other and accept who and what they both need to do and be in order to be happy is the theme which makes this short story one which is a great read.
