Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.

Wow, this book had a lot of drama and angst going on. Matt’s history is rough to read about. He really did not have a good childhood at all. Because of that he has issues left over. Together he and Ingor have founds ways to deal with them. That includes a pretty much 24/7 BDSM relationship.

Things are going good for them up until Matt has a fall and suffers from a traumatic brain injury. That is when things start going seriously wacky. So much goes on and certain things happen that leave me confused and a little befuddled. Basically I was wondering how the hell these things even went down. Suffice to say I was pulled out of the book.

Things do finally get back on track with the relationship between Matt and Ingor. I really do like the relationship these two have. It is BDSM, but there is a great deal of love and caring to it.

I enjoyed a good part of the book. However the drama and angst with Matt’s past coming back to get him was a little much for me. It just did not feel needed with all the other things going on. It was also nice to see the other characters from the past two books show up and take part.

So overall it was an OK read and I still look forward to more in the series.

Blurb: When Gavin Thorvald, local dragon lord, met his mate, Sebastian Michael, he thought everything would finally be right with the world. It had taken six hundred years, but he had finally met the one man made just for him. After Sebastian’s own brother held him away from Gavin long enough to make Sebastian lose their first egg, Gavin thought his mate would never be ready for another. Now, on the night of their wedding ceremony, Gavin was about to get a second chance.

The plans have been made, the grounds have been decorated, and the guests have been invited. Sebastian is prepared, so he thinks, to tie the knot and accept a new egg. He knows Gavin is ready and deep down he feels he is, too. Fate wouldn’t give them a second chance if they weren’t both ready. Unfortunately, no matter how prepared you are things can always go wrong.

Sebastian’s secrets will be told and Gavin will have to fight harder than he thought to keep everything together.

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.
After all the heartache and pain Sebastian and Gavin had from the last book they deserve a happy ending. And this book definitely gives them that.

But it takes some work on both their sides to make it a happy ending. Sebastian is deeply scared mentally by what happened to him by his brother and former best friend. He is not completely healed and when he starts to carry another egg, that really shows through. He winds up risking himself and the eggs health, before he finally admits what’s truly wrong to Gavin.

I liked how Gavin come up with a game plan involving Sebastian and his medical doctors to help him through it. Once he learned the truth, he understood completely and found ways to help Sebastian and try to elevate his fears.

Damn these two are super-hot together. Really steamy in the sack, against a wall, or wherever. There was no real BDSM themes in this book. Just some minor bondage and kinky toys.

This was a nice read. A little heavy on the angst. But when you think about it Sebastian has really been through a hell of a lot and kind of earned a little freak out time. Gavin was his normal awesome caring loving mate self. He saw to Sebastian’s needs anyway he could.

Good addition to the first book in the series.

Blurb: one story, 25 authors, infinite possibilities…

Quad McDaniel’s life changed forever the night he was attacked by a wolf. Now, he turns furry every full moon. Avoiding red meat and anything that makes him aggressive is his prime goal in life. But when his convertible breaks down in some Podunk town, becoming the beast within is no longer a choice. It’s instinctive.

Gypsy Govanivinch just wants to live a quiet life in Trinity Valley, running his roadhouse tavern. He doesn’t need an overly aggressive shifter coming into his town and messing with his peaceful little world, no matter how gorgeous the man looked.

Life never asked Quad or Gypsy what they wanted. It simply gave them what they needed, whether they agreed or not. Fate brought them together but it’s up to Quad and Gypsy to stay alive long enough to appreciate what they’ve been given. And when others work to prevent that, fighting together might be the only chance they have of surviving.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This was a wacky, crazy, and pretty damn good read. I have never read a book where each chapter is by a different author. But I must say they did a great job.

Quad is changed into a wolf shifter and abandoned by his maker. Now months later Quad is driving in his new car when it decides to die outside a little town called Trinity Valley. From there things just get weirder and weirder.

Gypsy is not human himself and is able to explain to Quad a little about shifters. But Gypsy has been hurt by shifters before and has a pretty big issue with them. But that doesn’t stop these two from mixing it up both in and out of bed. The chemistry is there from the start even when they don’t seem to like each other much.

For a book written by twenty-five different authors, there was a good flow in the story. It was fast paced and gave the needed information without dragging down the story with too much. The sex was steamy and very hot. The main characters were easy to like and personable.

A lot happens in a very short amount of time. There was tons of twist and turns going on throughout as Quad and Gypsy try to figure out what the hell is going on. There was some wicked planning going on by the bad guys.

This was a well written story by some of my favorite authors. It was entertaining, humorous, sexy, and wicked fun to read.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: Sebastian is just trying to get a job as a bartender at a BDSM club. His writing does not make him enough to pay all his bills. His true passion is writing paranormal shifter novels. Which comes in handy when he learns that he is mated to a shifter.

Gavin is a dragon lord that leads one of the largest packs of dragons around. He has been waiting six hundred years to find his mate. Sebastian turns out to be just what he is looking for. He wants a mate who is an equal outside the bedroom and submissive in it.

I loved Sebastian. He was so sweet and just plain likeable. He talks a mile a minute when he gets nervous, which was cute. He also smart and notices the things around him and deals with learning that shifters are real much faster than most humans would, since he has been writing about them for years. Gavin is a strong leader for his pack. But he is not afraid to be loving and gentle with Sebastian when he needs it.

This was a fast paced, well-written book. The sexy and BDSM were tasteful and pretty dam hot. The origin of the shifter world is very unique and one I have not seen before. The hunter’s are the traditional bad guys killing and hurting shifters because they are “monsters.” I look forward very much to more in this series.
