Logan was a man of action. So when he’s thrown together with his mate on a job he knew would end badly, his primary goal is to connect with his mate as unobtrusively as possible. When he learns Jenner is a target, Logan knows he’s about to put a price on his own head because saving his mate was all that mattered.

Jenner wasn’t about to mate the man sent to kill him, but his cat is drawn irrevocably to Logan, and so is he. So, there is only one thing he can do. He has to claim his assassin no matter the danger he’s walking into.

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

This is definitely one of those types of series that each story needs to be read back to back. The worlds are so twisted and the characters are completely complex. I have trouble keeping the good guys from the bad guys most of the time. It is a action packed story though with lots of excitement, adventure, twists and some hot sex scenes.

Logan was sent to find evidence against some shifters. To execute if need be, that is until he finds one of his targets to be his mate. Talk about a confusing situation for them both, because Jenner is not one of those tame pussy cats. He is all bite if need be, but he is falling for his sexy assassin mate. To bad someone wants them all dead.

Now normally I am all for books that are full of action, and assassins are majorly hot for me. The problems is trying to follow the pattern this author has put into her stories. For me a good story is remembered even if I am not reading it right then and there, and for me this was not that type of story. Now once I started reading it, I soon remembered the rest of the books. The characters however I did not. It is a difficult read to follow for me. Not so much that it took away from the story completely but I could not connect with the characters at all.

I had hoped with each book it would get easier, but when I read this one, the worlds just seem to collide with each other. I am still not completely sure of who is bad and who is good, but hey it will be interesting to figure it out in the end. Guess I will wait to see what this author makes for her readers in the future.

Blurb: Raiden is sent on what he thinks is a routine retrieval mission. When he arrives, he finds destruction and nearly dies as he finds his mate. Alimi is a soldier by profession with no intentions of settling down, but on a favor and an order from his alpha, he’s sent on a rescue mission. Little does he realize he’s on a collision course with his mate, who nearly dies on site.

Alimi isn’t in any hurry for a mate, but he’s not about to allow his one chance at happiness and love to pass him by. At the same time, he’s worried his mate could die on the front lines of the conflict. So, he gives him light duty until he has put him in harm’s way.

Raiden is more than eager to build a relationship with Alimi. Still, he questions Alimi’s decisions as a leader and that doubt just might prevent him from claiming his mate.

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

The war is getting even harder to win, especially when the coyote’s and jackals get involved. Alimi is in charge of keeping one sectioned safe but even he knew that it was probably impossible. He was a hard core soldier and knew that death was the only way for those he is fighting. Then in walks his mate, and the things he once thought went out the window.

Raiden is not what I expected. He is not as hard core as his mate, but he is damn protective of his mate. What he thought was a routine mission has turned into a freaking nightmare. However he knows that the one person he wants the most had better survive.

The story and its previous ones are quite unique and surprising. It is a very complex story that involves not only the two characters you are reading about, but many more. This is one of those stories that you need to read the previous books right before you read the new one, because if not you will be lost. Half the time I had no clue who was who and what did they stand for. It is a very hard story to follow and does have a dark tone to it. Personally I don’t really care for it, but the story itself is pretty amazing. The sex is not the main focus of the story, but the war that is happening is.

For me this story is just too hard to focus on and is something more for a afternoon read. I like my stories to be a little bit more fun and sexy, which this definitely is not. I am glad to see that it might be reaching the end though. We will see what the next book brings.

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

Now this is the fourth book in this series and I must admit there is quite a bit of confusion at first and darkness that doesn’t work well. It has a mixture of actions that makes it a bit hard to follow. There are so many characters. That also makes it a bit hard. I am never sure of who is good and who is bad. Nor do I truly understand where they are headed.

Now that doesn’t last throughout the whole book but is questionable all the way around. However with all of that, I can tell you that it doesn’t take away from my having a blast with this book.
Voss is basically the alpha of two prides that I can tell and there is a war going on. He is surprised by a sexy panther that shows up and turns out to be his mate. All he is trying to do is to keep his people safe and now he is trying to keep his little mate safe. Boy is he in for a big surprise.

Colby is an assassin and works for the lions. However he is not a lion and is holding back a lot of truths. He is in fact a snow panther and works undercover for the Order. He is trying to stop the war and the toxins that will kill them all. What he can’t figure out is why he is so damn attracted to Voss but he knows he will do everything he can to keep him safe.

It is a damn good story, but to truly follow it you have to start with the first book. Even having read it I was a bit lost because it had been a few weeks since I had read the last book. However I had a blast reading it and look forward to the next book. It gave me almost everything I could want in a story. And it might have been dark and a bit confusing but I could not take my eyes off of the story. I had fun reading it.

Review: Each book in the Peyton City collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. In fact, you will have to. It is the only way not to be confused with this story. Even with time has passed, and I haven’t read the other books in a few weeks I am a bit lost with it. E. A. Reynolds has one amazing imagination. The characters are well written and developed.

Taylan has always been on the side of good but he never fully trusted him Dom. He was in love with Collen but he tried to get messages to him, but Collen never did anything about the danger. Then while meeting one of the cats, he is injured and has lost his memory. He has forgotten that he had in fact been mated to Collen.

Collen did not know what to believe, but he knew that he did love Taylan. He loved his sub but did not think they were mates. He took Taylan home after he was hurt, and kept him by his side. Now he must learn to trust what is in his heart as well as in his mind.

I came across this author some time ago and there is always a twist to the stories. I love the twist and turns to it, but it is so confusing at times especially if you haven’t read the first two books that it does the exact opposite of what one would like. You have the paranormal world mixed in with love, danger, suspense, excitement and some pretty hot action in this book. I enjoyed it enough to know that I will read them over more than once.

Of course I will start with the first book to recap what I do not remember from them.

I would be happy to recommend this book to my friends.

Review: Each book in the Peyton City collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way this author can put together a book that not only fascinates you but also draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by E. A. Reynolds.

There is something about the way that E. A. 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. I only had one problem with this story is that it is a bit confusing trying to figure out who is against the white panthers and who is not.

Jordan has known that Jamar is his mate, but that Jamar is interested in another. He wanted his mate, but knew that a mating would not be true if the other is interested in another man. He was going to bide his time and eventually he would get Jamar. There were many that wanted the white panthers to be killed off. The white panthers are the ones that will keep the blacks panthers going. They are loyal, can keep their mates by their side, and give them the children they needed. He just worried that Jamar wouldn’t want any of it.

Jamar had wanted another, that is until Mendes took a liking to Jamie. Jamar was a white panther, and if he didn’t take a mate, his grandfather would make him. He didn’t want that, but he wasn’t really sure what he wanted. Then Jordan starts coming on to him and he is a bit lost. Jordan is into the BDSM scene heavily, but he fears that Jordan just wants to play. That is until he realizes that they are mates.

Then the fun begins.

I loved this book but I am not sure about the way Jordan is with Jamar. I mean to me it feels like he is pushing the spanking. I don’t understand some of that. It just seems too harsh to be true. There are just a few words that appear at the wrong time, but other than that, my attention never wavered from the story. It had caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it there all the way to the end.

They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a touch of humor in them that I love. It gave me everything I could want in a book.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. What is better than gorgeous men, sexy little mates, male pregnancy, excitement, some hot and kinky sex, a little bit of twists and lots of danger?
