Blurb: Logan is a wolf with a past. His mother is a witch, an evil one that tried to murder his friends and tear his pack apart. He volunteered for the small group tasked with stopping her and was faced with a difficult decision. He chose to step in front of his friend and take the deadly spell meant for Kyle. It killed him.

At least that’s what he thought until he was once again put in the position to choose in a dream. This time, by a deity who offered him a chance to move on or come back. It is that melodic voice that tempts him back with the promise that he would be loved.

Needless to say the news that it wasn’t a dream and he now belongs to a Goddess isn’t a nice surprise in the cold light of day and he rebels against the ownership. His friends rally round him and summon the deity to demand answers.

Except…when Cerridwen appears, she isn’t a Goddess anymore but a God. With white hair that glitters with magic, mesmerizing eyes and a body made for sin that makes his wolf pant.

It isn’t a short or easy road, but Logan gives Cerrid the chance the man asks for and discovers being claimed by someone may not be that bad a thing, because sometimes the belonging goes both ways.

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

This was a really good and enjoyable read. Logan gave his life to save his Alpha. But something or someone gave him another chance, at life and love. When Logan finds out he has been claimed by the Goddess Cerridwen, Logan is not exactly thrilled with the news. He was promised to be loved, however Cerridwen is a woman, and Logan is definitely gay.

Only Cerridwen, now to be called Cerrid changes his whole personality along with his body to fit Logan’s desires. Cerrid also manages to create a mate bond between them. Cerrid take the “gay for you” fantasy to a whole new level.

I really liked Cerrid. He has a lot to learn about the world since he has not been in the human realm for a long time. Things like fashion and electronics. The shopping trip had me laughing. He may not understand the world at large, but he sure does enjoy learning about it with Logan’s help.

Logan has his own learning to do. Things like anything is possible with a God as a mate. And how to live in a treehouse that seems to be alive.

These two are definitely hot and sexy together. Let me just say that a newly male God and the internet are very good things, especially for Logan.

This book was funny and sweet. It was great addition to the Pack Valley world.

Review: I love Jay and Kyle. They are just perfect for each other. They have been best friends since childhood. Jay was even accepted into Kyle’s family. Until the day Jay finally pulled away completely thinking to protect Kyle and his parents from the horrors of his home life.

But neither man forgot each other. And on the day Jay needs him the most Kyle rescues Jay and takes him back home, forever. Well after Kyle explains everything to Jay. I must say Jay’s minds works in the best ways. His reactions to learning about shifters and mating is funny as hell.

Jay is just a cute, sassy, and sweet bundle. Kyle is strong, loyal, and damn sweet too. Jay let his stepfather ruin his personal view and worth, but Kyle helps him get it back. To Kyle, Jay is nothing less than perfect for him. To Jay, Kyle has been what he has always wanted and loved.

It may be short, but it gives the series a good base to start from. It brings the two main characters together and explains their backgrounds. It gives the reader a good feel for the type of men they are. But it also lets the reader know there is more to come and that Jay and Kyle are still growing into who they will be.

Great little read to open the series with.

Blurb: Book one in the Shifter Protector Specialists Inc. series

Never play cat and mouse with a saber-tooth tiger.
When Kale Andrews gets disturbing mail from an obsessed fan, his brother drags him to Shifter Protection Specialists, Inc. Kale reluctantly agrees to have a bodyguard, but when a tall, muscular blond walks into the office emanating power and a sexy dose of danger, Kale’s doubts about needing the man with him twenty-four hours a day quickly disappear.

The easy babysitting job Aleksi was promised quickly changes from strange mail to threatening deliveries, so Aleksi has to become creative to keep his protectee out of danger. Everyone knows models are self-centered and shallow, so why does being with Kale make him feel like he finally has a home? Since he’s a saber-tooth tiger and naturally dominant, most people aren’t strong enough to be with him in a relationship or even as a friend. Yet Kale seems to calm his beast, simultaneously exciting the man in Aleksi.

Neither man expects nor wants a relationship with strings, but as they grow closer, Aleksi realizes that Kale might be his mate. With an obsessed fan escalating toward murder, Aleksi isn’t sure that even his tiger can keep his mate safe.

Review: Kale has a stalker, who starts out slow and builds up to truly creepy and dangerous. When he gets sent an animal eyeball, his brother/manager finally calls in the big guns for protection. They go to Shifter Protection Specialists, Inc. There Kale meets Aleski. Aleski is a huge man, but then he has to be since he is a saber-tooth tiger.

I loved Aleski right from the start. How cool to have a saber-tooth tiger shifter. At first, I was not really drawn to Kale as he had the cool diva act down pat. But as the story goes on he warms up and it’s revealed he hides himself from the world in general and only lets his brother in. As the two MCs deal with a progressively more dangerous stalker, Kale and Aleski get closer and learn about each other. For the first time Aleski has someone who is not afraid of his animal and Kale deals with letting someone in behind his walls.

This was an alternative world set up where shifters are part of society, but are still looked at as suspect and dangerous by many. This whole book pulled me in from the start. I was always waiting for the next something to happen. Whether it was a snarky comment, to see what the stalker would pull next, some funny situation, or some loving. The world built was interesting and well described without distracting from the overall story. It was fast paced with a good mix of action and scenes with the MCs and their growing relationship.

I am really looking forward to the next book in the series. It looks like that will be an interesting and exciting ride too.
