Review @Terrybelle13 - A Home for her Hawk by Summer Donnelly (Shifter Special Forces #4)





A Home
for her Hawk
Shifter Special Forces #4
by Summer Donnelly

Goodreads blurb:  A single mom burned by love + a sexy hawk shifter with a life-altering injury = a love they can’t deny.

Where has living by the rules gotten Kimber Bromstadt? Waiting tables and living off the charity of others with her newborn son in a little yellow cabin in North Carolina.
Hawk shifter Daniel Donofrio is hiding out and healing on Maxwell Mountain. While trying to come to terms with an injury that cost him the freedom to soar without limits in the sky, he meets and is instantly attracted to the young single mom.
Can a man raised without affection find love in the arms of a woman burned by marriage? And as their attraction and sparks fly, will they find the strength to cope with a threat to their family?

This is a short, 20k word novella full of slightly grumpy shifter dudes and the women who love them.  


About the Author:  Reader Beware! Author believes in love at first sight, fairy tales, happily ever afters, insta-love, and happy endings.

Sweet, frothy romance between strong women finding their way in life and love and the men who capture their hearts.

Lots of emphasis on strong female friendships.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I received a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I bought this book, and I own the whole series so far!

The cover is awesome!  I love birds of prey!

This is the 4th book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  While not required, I would read all the books in order, so you know the world and the characters because it makes it more amazing!  This is a quick read and only about 75 pages long.

Kimber is Hunter’s sister, and she is a single mom.  She is feeling overwhelmed as a new mom and like she is a burden to their community.  Daniel has his own issues due to losing one of his eyes.  They both have emotional baggage, but they are drawn to each other.  This was a page turner, and I like the nice things that Daniel does for Kimber.  There is a little excitement, but it is most just them trying to get to know each other while working through their issues.  I related to Kimber being a single mom, and it felt real.  I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.

I highly recommend to any shifter fan who wants a quick read about military shifters who need some happiness!  Awesome series!

Review @Charlie_Adhara - The Wolf at the Door by Charlie Adhara (Big Bad Wolf #1)





The Wolf
at the Door
Big Bad Wolf #1
by Charlie Adhara

Goodreads blurb:  A former FBI agent is partnered with the enemy in this suspenseful male/male shifter romance from debut author Charlie Adhara

Hunting for big bad wolves was never part of Agent Cooper Dayton’s plan, but a werewolf attack lands him in the carefully guarded Bureau of Special Investigations. A new case comes with a new partner: ruggedly sexy werewolf Oliver Park.

Park is an agent of The Trust, a werewolf oversight organization working to ease escalating tensions with the BSI. But as far as Cooper’s concerned, it’s failing. As they investigate a series of mysterious deaths unlike anything they’ve seen, every bone in Cooper’s body is suspicious of his new partner—even when Park proves himself as competent as he is utterly captivating.

When more people vanish, pressure to solve the case skyrockets. And though he’d resolved to keep things professional, Cooper’s friction with Park soon erupts…into a physical need that can’t be contained or controlled. But with a body count that’s rising by the day, werewolves and humans are in equal danger. If Cooper and Park don’t catch the killer soon, one—or both—of them could be the next to go.

This book is approximately 90,000 words

Carina Press acknowledges the editorial services of Mackenzie Walton


About the Author:  Charlie Adhara has always loved a good story and, on occasion, a bad one. After getting her degree in neuroscience, Charlie decided she’d much rather study the heart. She now writes contemporary, mystery, paranormal, queer romance. Or some assortment of that. Whatever the genre, her stories feature imperfect people stumbling around, tripping over trouble and falling in love. 

Charlie has done a fair amount of stumbling around herself but tends to find her way back to the northeast U.S. After all, home is where the dog is.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is mysterious and a little spooky!

This is the first book in the series and the first book by this author.  This is for adults only due to the violence and m/m steamy scenes.  This is a romance between two men. 

I wanted to read this book because it was a mysterious FBI type book.  I like reading action-packed books where you aren’t sure what will happen next.  This book was not predictable.  Every time I thought I knew who did it, I would find out I’m wrong.  I love when an author has me running around in circle not knowing what is happening.  The romance is light is this book as they are getting to know each other and are unsure especially with being partners and working this case.  I liked trying to figure it out along the way with Cooper and Park.  You really will be surprised who it is.  I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book!

I recommend to any shifter fans to love mysteries and CSI type situations where you are trying to figure out who did it, and you might also need to like m/m books!

Review @SableSylvan - The Sleeping Beauty Pageant by Sable Sylvan (Fated Mate Speed Date #3)





The Sleeping Beauty Pageant
 Fated Mate Speed Date #3
by Sable Sylvan

Goodreads blurb:  Local hair dresser Melanie Watson believes in big hair, big dreams, and big events. Volunteering to help organize the Fallowedirt Beauty Pageant means that Melanie doesn't have time for love, much less three alpha male suitors that can shift into big cats at the blink of an eye, but these cougar shifter cowboys are determined to claim Melanie as their fated mate. There's only one hitch: all three puma shifters want her, and Melanie can't choose her favorite suitor. Will this Texas princess get her fairytale ending, or will this Sleeping Beauty be left without a kiss?

Melanie isn't the type to date three guys at once. When the three men she's enamored with end up getting her into deep trouble, the last thing she wants is for them to come back to her, tails tucked between their legs, with a poor excuse for a solution. Luckily for them, Melanie is the type to give third chances, so these were cougars had better get their act together if they want to win their princess back. The key word? Together.

Charlie, Dan, and Taylor are looking for their fated mates: women they're meant to be with, to call their own. They're not looking to share, certainly not with each other. Charlie's wild partying ways get on old-fashioned Dan's last nerves, and neither can get along with city boy Taylor. The only thing they have in common? All three are driven by their inner cougar, willing to fight for their mate. The only problem is, Melanie doesn't want a fight. The three were-cougar cowboys have already tried making war. That only leaves them with one option: making love. The only problem is, how can they earn back Melanie's trust and fix the situation they've gotten her into?

Love fairy tales and fated mates? Can't get enough of speedy reads and speed dates? Into sassy BBWs learning to love and the hot-blooded wild shifter heroes begging to be tamed? Not afraid of a good-old-fashioned happy ending (no cliffhangers allowed) for a three-on-one menage a trois-plus-one? And most importantly, do you think that grandmas and pies can save the frikkin' world?

Then check out "The Sleeping Beauty Pageant", and look for the rest of the books in the "Fated Mate Speed Date" series on Amazon, available via the Kindle Unlimited program! This series has elements of romantic comedy, Western romance, and of course, shifter-focused paranormal romances between curvy BBWs and a menagerie of different alpha male shifters.


About the Author:  The only thing I love more than reading hot paranormal romances is writing down my fantasies and sharing them with readers like you. My heroes are strong alpha male bear shifters who can be grizzly and gruff at times...but when it comes to their fated mates, they're absolute teddy bears. My curvy heroines are strong, sassy women, which is why the werebear men who love them will do anything for their love.

All my books are $0.99, at least full length novella length, feature an HEA, and are exclusively available on Amazon.com! They are all FREE via Kindle Unlimited!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!! And I bought my own copy already, and I own most of Sable’s books!

The cover is another awesome one!  It goes great with the other books in the series too!

This is the 3rd book in the series, and this series is a spin-off of the Feminine Mesquite series.  This is for adults only due to the steamy content and does have ménage scenes. 

This story is about Melanie who is Addison’s friend, and they are trying to put together a pageant that is a fundraiser.  Addison, like her sisters, talk her friend into going to their grandma’s speed dating event where she meets 3 gorgeous men.  This story is similar in style to the first 2 books where she is dating 3 men, and as we know, this can cause problems.  It was a page turner with a mystery to solve.  I couldn’t put it down.

I highly recommend to any shifter fan who loves fated ménages especially if you already love Sable’s work!

Review @ZoeChantebooks - Stealing the Snow Leopard's Heart by Zoe Chant (Shifter Suspense #3)





Stealing the Snow Leopard's Heart
Shifter Suspense #3
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A snow leopard shifter PI.
An ex-thief who can’t escape her past.
And an adorable baby dragon…


I've never met anyone as perfect as her. My one true mate.

Snow leopard shifter Lance MacInnis never thought he'd meet his mate. But Keeley Smith is everything he never dared to hope for. Brave, kind, and fiercely protective of the adorable baby dragon she rescued from evil shifters.

When everything else in his life seems to be going wrong, she's the only thing he can be sure of.

He says he loves me. But he doesn't know the truth. If he did, he'd never look at me again.

Keeley has spent the last ten years running from her past. When she saves a newly-hatched dragon and discovers the secret world of shifters, she thinks she’s finally found her chance to turn over a new leaf. To be a good person, at last.

But she wasn't expecting to fall in love. Of everything she’s done, that might just be the worst.

Especially since her past has just caught up with her.
  


About the Author:  Zoe Chant loves writing paranormal romance. Over a cup of tea (or something stronger) she whips up sexy tales of hunky heroes and adventurous heroines to tantalize and satisfy her readers. Sizzling hot romance, no cliffhangers!

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, and no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have bought this book because I loved it, and I own most of Zoe’s books!

The cover is awesome, and Maggie is so cute!

This is the 3rd book in this series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content and violence.  For the best enjoyment, I highly recommend reading all of the books in order because then you will know the backstories, the world, and how all the characters are together.

I feel bad for Keeley because her family sucks.  She is trying to make a life for herself, but she is pulled back in.  Maggie is the most adorable baby dragon.  I love her personality and the noises she makes.  We have met Lance before, and this is his story where Keeley is his mate.  This is an adventure to save Maggie and her siblings.  This was a page turner filled with action.  It killed me though where it ended because I wanted more, but I guess that will be in the next book.

I highly recommend to all shifter fans especially if you have ever read Zoe Chant and liked her books!  They are amazing, and I own almost all of them!  She is one of my favorite authors and a got to author for when I need a great read!

Review @AuthorMFox - Killer Stakes by Michelle Fox (Eternal Child #2)





Killer Stakes
Eternal Child #2
by Michelle Fox

Goodreads blurb:  When I found out vampires were real, everything changed.
And yet, strangely, it all stayed the same, too.
I still worked for a secret metaphysical branch of the FBI. Although, thanks to being thrown around like a rag doll on my last case, I was currently on medical leave. A small mercy given how much personal baggage I had to unload at the moment.
The fallout from the last case didn’t stop at bodily injury. It went much further than that, cracking the foundation of my life and my career in one fell swoop.
Supernatural serial killers are a pain in the ass like that.
I just want to rest and pretend I'm not psychic, but when a team of serial killers hits my hometown, I have to step in.
No, really. It has to be me. No one else knows about the vampires and fey fighting a shadow war right under everyone's noses, and it turns out these serial killers might be involved in the latest supernatural scuffle.
On top of that, I've got boyfriend troubles, I'm bonded to the world's most annoying vampire, and my DNA is suddenly a hot commodity among vampires—as in, everyone wants a piece of me.
I have all the wrong karma sometimes.  


About the Author:  A USA Today & NY Times bestselling author, Michelle Fox lives in the Midwest with her husband, kids, the occasional exchange student and two, sweetly disobedient dogs. She loves fantasy and romance, which makes writing paranormal romance a natural fit.

In her spare time, she's been known to shake her bon-bon at Zumba, make spectacular cheesecakes, hoard vintage costume jewelry and eat way too much ice cream (Ben and Jerry’s Karamel Sutra for the win!).

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have already bought my copy; have you?

The cover fits with book 1 which I like!

This is the 2nd book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the violence.  While it isn’t mandatory to read in order, I highly recommend doing so to understand the characters better and the world.

This book was action-packed, but it was not much fun for Amelia.  I swear everything that could go wrong did for her.  My heart went out to her especially with everything that happened with Brendan.  Everyone keeps looking at her talking about power, but she isn’t feeling it.  I really want her to overcome and be able to be the strong independent woman she is, and she needs a turn of luck too!

This world is very diverse with paranormal elements as well as being unique.  Michelle Fox created an amazing story though the end feels cliff hangery, and I’m definitely needing the next book to see what happens next!

I highly recommend to any paranormal fans who want a complex world where you never know what will happen next!
