Matteo helps Dakota with her shifter and she shows him what he twenty first centry is like. He’s been in cat form for a long time but their mating causes Matteo shifter problems. He must keep away from Dakota to keep them both save. When Dakota is kidnapped by a rogue military force he must save her, at any cost.
I really love the characters in this book. Matteo has a harsh, complicated history and meeting the complex Dakota only adds to the beautiful chaos. Their romance plays out among the action of the military attack. It gives a nice break to the romance and keeps the story going forward. The sex is super hot and definitely going to get the blood flowing. There are a few slow spots in the book that felt a bit bogged down but that’s really my only complaint. In terms of a shifter book, Matteo and Dakota really stand out. If you like shifters with a lot of heat then this book should be on your list to read!
Marjani is nearly feral, dealing with a dark past. Can Fane, a fae, tame her wild beast?
I definitely felt a bit lost in some spots because I haven’t read the previous books. There’s just so much going on, shapeshifters and Fae. That said, I wish there was more of a unique storyline. I did really like Marjani. She’s a cougar and dealing with a dark past. Fane is fae, not just fairy but pureblood. They had great chemistry. The sex is hot but sometimes a bit over the top. Marjani is definitely a character I fell in love with! Her attitude really resonated with me. Fane, sexy fae, is enamored with her and it’s not hard to see why. There’s some great action in this book that really had me on the edge of my seat.
If you enjoy paranormal with shifters then Charming Marjani should be on your list to read!
We’re in a world of Santa, elves and pixes. There’s also shifters and mates. That’s exactly what happens when Magnus sees Melody. He knows she’s his mate but Melody is a half pixie. How can anyone possibly love her?
Melody has no self confidence being half pixie so she doesn’t understand Magnus’ interest in her. Magnus knows she’s his mate from the first moment they meet. The Santa world is a cute addition. I like how Santa has an app and that there’s a real problem with marketing. Comedy comes off subtle and entertaining in this story. The romance really shines through. I absolutely love that even though they’re mates and that they’re attracted that the romance is a slow sizzle. It doesn’t feel rushed or slow but it’s the perfect pace to get you hot and bothered. The sex is seriously hot! They have such great chemistry.
Bear’s Beauty is a sexy tale you can read all year long!
Avery is an overweight shifter who is unable to shift and upset by her last boyfriends cheating ways. When she meets Fletcher and Mitch she knows they’re trouble but can she resist? Should she resist?
I like Avery and Fletcher and Mitch. They are all good characters but very predictable. I wish the author had given us more. Maybe more world building, or more action or something. Please be aware the men do interact which I personally am a fan of. If you like shifter stories I have no doubt you’re going to enjoy this one. It has sexy men who are in love with an overweight, flawed woman. There’s hot sex and mate fun. The author is very talented, I’ve read several of her other books and they’ve been fabulous. I just wish this story was different from all the other shifter books out there.
Love fated mate stories? I’d say give Queen Wolf a read!
Katherine needs a change. After her father dies she moves to Montana where she finds not one, not two but three sexy men all grabbing her attention. What’s a girl to do?
We have three hot guys, shifters, Trey, Mac and Sully. Two of them are brothers which kind of hurt the sexy factor. I just didn’t like the idea of brothers have sex with the same woman like that. No, they don’t touch. Still creepy. I wish the author had made them all just friends. Anyway, Katherine is a bit ditsy but totally cute. She’s trying to move on with her life and she’s not sure how to deal with these three handsome guys. Katherine is too easily accepting and open to strange guys though. I had a hard time liking her. The guys in question are actually part of a paranormal team that keeps the action going in the story. There’s a good suspense element with Katherine’s greedy half-brother. Overall, I enjoyed this story. I’d recommend it to anyone who loves mate romances.
Sexy shifters here I come!
Derrick posed for a calendar photo shoot where he was poisoned. Not only is he still feeling crappy but he’s got some PTSD from his experience. He meets short but adorable shifter Niall, his well-crafted plans are once again up in smoke. Will an unexpected part of his past break them apart?
Derrick is a bit shy (until he gets Niall on his back), blushes a lot and is dealing with trauma from the poisoning. Naill is adorable, short, leprechaun like (Derrick’s words) and fun. They meet randomly and instantly hit it off. Naill’s flirting ways gets him a date with Derrick and they rest as they say is history. Or rather is the whole plot for Mr. May. This is a cute romance with really likeable characters. The shifter park is really interesting. I like the imagery and building of it into the story. There some suspense in here that I really enjoyed. It gave some action and pace to the book.
If you like shifter story’s with hot sex and a bit of suspense then you should definitely read Mr May by Bailey Bradford!
Brenn has a guardian dragon that is working her way through his tough armor. She has to help him find his family after the village is burned down. Together they create an impressive force but can they also fall in love?
I read Carnal twilight, the prequel, a few months ago and didn’t enjoy it. I’m happy to say the first book, In Search of Pride faired much better. The longer length really showed what the authors could create. It’s a fantasy world filled with rich description. Ciara is a great character. She’s a dragon with as much fierceness as the guys in this book but also a sweetness when it comes to Brenn. I really like how their story plays out. There’s some angst, lots of action and who doesn’t love dragons?! There are some slow spots that makes the story drag but overall, I enjoyed this story. The romance/sex aspect is good but written in an overly simple style and it is not as hot as I hoped it would be. The author also introduces us to some great secondary characters that I hope get their own story!
A dolphin shifter is given charged with taking a selkie family from Australia to Ireland but he doesn’t expect to find love along the way.
This story has an interesting premise which captured my interest early on but the story itself did begin to slow just a little for me. Galadir is an agent of an organization called The Shallows. They seem to be all about protecting the environment and shifters. Galadir is charged with taking a Selkie family from Australia to Ireland but rather than going by boat they are swimming there. Galadir is uneasy about this job because one of the Selkies is a baby, a rare white pup. Along the way, the pup becomes ill and Galadir has to go ashore for help. He’s pretty much a one trick guy. He knows how to protect from threats but he doesn’t know how to heal or anything like that, so he needs to get help. This is where the story takes a slow turn for me. All the different things he goes through to get the help took me a little out of the story. I would have liked more information on Greg and the Depths and what Greg and those other sharks are doing out in the ocean.
This is an enjoyable story, but it left me wanting more, hence my rating of three. Still, I recommend it to those who enjoy shifter stories because this is a good addition to genre.
When Tim finds out Colin is a werewolf he bolts…right into the hands of hunters. Now Colin has to save Tim before that love is ripped from this world.
Tim’s reaction to Colin’s big secret is so honest that I instantly liked him. Seriously, he sees a man turn into a wolf and freaks the hell out. Colin is afraid of how his mate will act when he finds out the truth about what he is and for good reason. When Tim is taken a rage settles over Colin that will make the hair on your neck stand up. This short but intense story is all about going through any obstacle to get to his one and only mate. If you like mates, you’re going to love this story. However, the plot is complete unoriginal. There’s no world building, no unique story to draw a reader in. It’s sort of a romance that happens to involve werewolves. I’ve read a thousand of them, some good, some bad. Forever with my Werewolf has sexy, well rounded characters and good action. If you’re just starting out in the werewolf/shifter genre than I’d recommend this book.
It took Zach all his willpower to come back from a devastating car accident. He buys a place in the middle of some relaxing woods hoping to get his life back on track. A walk leads to being chased by a giant wolf and meeting the wolfs brother Gibson. All their lives will be change but will it be for the better?
Gibson is taking care of his brother who’s mental damaged and stuck in wolf form. His love for his brother is both heartwarming and tender. I love the relationship these two have, as strained and complicated as it is. When Gibson saves Zach it’s like both men have seen the light. The possibilities are limitless if they can just get past the whole werewolf thing. I really like their romance but I wish there was more of it. The focus of most of the book seemed to be Gibson’s brother Ellis. My main issue is that there’s nothing different about this wolf world. It could be another story in a million different shifter books which is a shame because I really like the characters.
If you are a hardcore shifter fan you’ll probably love Once Upon a Wolf!
