More Bad Things by Luxie Ryder
Finn is invited to a Halloween bash, hosted by none other than his ex. He is determined that Byron will regret that he ever dumped him. What he doesn’t know is that Byron already regrets it.
I loved that this wasn’t instant love, there is history behind the characters and the author does an amazing job of relaying that to the reader. Finn is easy to relate to because who hasn’t wanted to make an ex feel some regret. Your cheering him on the whole story. Byron could have used a little more work on his character but he still fit the bill. You really feel the sizzle between him and Finn. I loved Keisha who is Finn’s best friend and who gave the story a majority of it’s humor. I smirked and laughed the whole time I read it. It was a fun, short read that I really enjoyed.
Dulce by Avril Ashton
Griffin hasn’t been home in three years so he isn’t completely unaware of some of the hostilities going on, he is surprised that it might get in the way of his mating. Dulce is being groomed to be the next alpha after his father takes down Griffin’s father that is.
I have completely and utterly fallen in love with Griffin. Who doesn’t love a man/wolf who knows what he wants and goes after it with a single mindedness. Add in the fact that he is a complete alpha that goes all hot and bothered when Dulce goes alpha on him. Dulce is Latin, bald, and tattooed, I think I might have drooled just a little bit saying that. Then put that with his dominate attitude with vulnerability and you’ve got a wet dream come to life.
Though there is some angst to the story it’s just too hot to be anything but erotic. The only complaint I have is the insta-love but in such a short story that’s hard to get around and completely easy to ignore when compared to how awesome this story is. Highly recommended to the wolf lovers out there.
Sexy Beast by Anna Keraleigh
What’s the world coming to when a shifter can’t take a walk in the woods without being shot at by hunters? Declan isn’t sure he is going to be able to escape unscathed. Erik sees the hunters on his land and can’t let them kill the beautiful creature even if it means he might be the beasts next meal.
Declan is an Irish legend come to life with a quick wit and insatiable appetite. Erik is a regular guy who enjoys the rustic life and writing fantasy in his spare time. The passion between the two really heat up the pages. This story was a complete blast. It’s rather fast paced with mating and insta-love but the humor blended it all together seamlessly.
Claret by Miho Li
Toshi is an apprentice Shaman and part time college student. He knows better than to pull over to the side of the road to talk to strangers but he can’t seem to stop himself.
If I was forced to pick a favorite through threat of death, it would be this one. It’s chaotic and dark which made it all the more captivating and enticing. The characters Toshi and Aki are anything but perfect and lean closer to neurotic. It completely works. The characters alone would be worth reading the book and yet the plot is just as hypnotizing. This is only part one and you better believe I’ll be rushing off to buy part two as soon as it comes out. I highly recommend reading this book but not during daylight hours and if possible have a bed present.
Dream Weaver by Kastil Eavenshade
Colin has been crushed and isn’t sure if he can pick himself up. Fanaticizing should be safe though and he has some good material in his sexy gym partner. So what if Justin is straight and married, this is just fantasy… right?
I’ve never seen a plot like this and the author did an amazing job of playing it up. I completely felt Colin’s loneliness and then his desire for Justin. It was easy to see why he loves care-free and considerate Jeremy. It pulls the reader in by playing on the fact that we all have fantasies and dreams. Not only is it stimulating but well written, it never felt like a short story. Attention all fairy lovers, you’ll love this story, I know I did.
