Review - Mate Hunt by J.S. Striker




Mate Hunt
Alpha Werewolf Romance
by J.S. Striker

Goodreads blurb:  A sexy panther shifter and an equally gorgeous wolf shifter are brought together in trying circumstances and can’t keep their paws off each other.

Life as the ultimate shifter leader has never been easy for Dylan Masters, but he is an expert when it comes to navigating the very fragile world of supernatural politics—and now, he is in the market for a wife, one who will strengthen his ties and be at his side at all times. That plan is halted when shocking news arrives, and suddenly the wolf shifter who is used to sitting on his throne must now embark on a mission that involves dealing with a potential enemy, journeying through uncharted territory and meeting a woman who is all sorts of wrong for him—but feels all sorts of right…

There’s a slavery business going on near her family’s lands, and that just wouldn’t do—especially not when Isabella Hart’s brother is a part of it. Like her clan, she doesn’t trust outsiders. But this time she has no choice, because she needs to do everything in her power to save her brother—including teaming up with a shifter leader who is too charming for his own good and may have more ulterior motives than he’s letting on. But what’s a woman to do when family depends on it? She needs to stomach it out—and not fall for the enemy in the process…

Adult content.

A HEA standalone HOT & SEXY shifter romance.

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 amazing and my favorite type of shifter cover with both beautiful beasts!

This is a standalone HEA shifter romance, but it does have some topics of child slavery and abuse.  It is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  It is about 175 pages long.

I really enjoyed the love/hate relationship with Dylan and Isabella.  The mixed shifter world mixed with some witchy magic makes for a very interesting read.  I think some of the Alpha attitudes needed a smack down, but they were Alphas.  Isabella is fierce, and I love how she kicks butt.  Dylan is interesting, and the dynamic between Alphas is tense to put it lightly.  Simon and Robin are interesting, and I think there is a story waiting to be written about them.  They definitely click!  I can’t wait to see was J.S. cooks up next!

I recommend this book to any shifter fan who loves a mixed paranormal world with Panthers, Wolves, Witches, and magic with an HEA ending!

Review @ZoeChantebooks -Sheriff Bear by Zoe Chant (Bears of Pinerock County #1)




Sheriff Bear
Bears of Pinerock County #1
by Zoe Chant

Goodreads blurb:  A small-town sheriff + a wrongly accused BBW on the run + deadly enemies and dangerous passions = a sizzling forbidden love!

Bear shifter and small-town sheriff Axl Tanner isn't looking for trouble or temptation when he walks into Marge's Diner, but he discovers two things at a glance. First: the smoking hot waitress with flaming red hair and curves in all the right places is also the woman on the wanted poster back in his office. Second: she's his mate!

Framed for a crime she didn't commit and running from dangerous enemies, curvy Tara Malloy is waiting tables in a truck-stop diner while trying to figure out how to clear her name and get her life back. The last thing she needs is to get involved with a drop-dead-sexy sheriff and his entire bear clan. But she's always been a sucker for a man in uniform ...

Axl knows he shouldn't fall for the sexy fugitive; Tara knows better than to fall for a cop. But flaming desire pulls them together, and Axl can't leave his mate to face her enemies alone. Can they overcome their differences and find the love they've been dreaming of ... or will Tara's deadly past claim both their lives?

This is a standalone BBW bear shifter romance, first in the new Bears of Pinerock County series about the rugged bear shifters of the Circle B bear clan. Every one has a guaranteed HEA, with no cliffhangers!   


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!!  No one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have bought this book because I own most of Zoe’s books!

The cover is very awesome!  I love it!

I bought this book back in 2015, but I’m reading it now because I need to read the latest release and want to read them in order.  This is the first book in this series, and it is for adults only.  It is about 150 pages, and it was definitely a perfect mix of action and romance.

Axl is the county sheriff, and he is a bear shifter.  Tara is on the run and wanted.  These two make a great pair, and their story had me from the start.  Zoe always knows how to mix the perfect amount of action and romance that ends in an HEA!  I can’t wait to read more of this series.

I highly recommend to all bear lovin’ shifter fans because Zoe’s work is always a great read for HEA ending lovers!

Cameron Murdock has returned to Avalon Bay and is ready to take on the role as his Pride’s Beta, only to discover that the new shifter in town is none other than his mate. Only problem is she has no idea who or what she is.

Hailey James moved to Avalon Bay in search of a quiet life. If only she had known when Mr tall, dark and dreamy walked in, her whole world would change.

Now, with a group of hunters moving to break the treaty, and an unexpected surprise, Cameron will have to go to extraordinary lengths to stake his Lion’s claim.

It’s been a while since Wilder Monrow has been back home. Being a Liger made it difficult for him to be a part of the pride he grew up with. But when his best friend Rowdy Avans took Alpha, he is needed to come back and help with the Beta Trials. Making sure everything is a fair fight should be easy. But when a serious of accidents and a murder take place it set’s Wilder beast on edge. Oh, and the feisty blonde who has his body stirring in the process doesn’t help much either, as she is non-other than the Alpha’s baby sister.

Harper has fought tooth and claw for what she wanted in life. And what she wanted was to sit in the corner, read a book and not have anyone bother her. Well unless that someone was Wilder, the crush she had since she was a little girl. Now he’s back, stirring up her lioness in ways she knows she shouldn’t be. And during this all, she needs to be mindful as she is being watched by everyone, and she, in turn, is watching them.

The compound is on riled up as the trials keep going on, but at what cost? Will Wilder be able to keep Rowdy safe during the events? Can Harper pull in her animal in time before she does something she might regret? And when it all ends, who will remain victorious?

Alpha born female, Megan Nox, has a birthmark which should match her perfect mate's, yet no Alpha male in the Greensborough pack has that same mark. Her fated mate must be outside the pack and Megan is convinced he will be at the upcoming Spring Festival.

Lucas Noll is a Beta in the Robinvale pack which uses and abuses their underlings. The pack to which he is devoted, which should protect him, but which cut the birthmark from his belly. The mark to identify him to his mate. Megan is his mate. He knows it and she feels it, but without the proof, and Lucas’s own feelings of inadequacy, how are they ever going to be together?

Piper Halliday only wanted to get away from her every day, run of the mill, swamped life for a little vacation. What better way than staying in a cabin hidden away from the world, until she no longer feels safe.

Paxson Rivers led a quiet existence in the Windsor Woods. However, his days were numbered. He knew the moment she arrived and he couldn’t help but want her, he just didn’t know why. Linking to a human was against everything he’d ever known or understood.

When Paxson is forced to move in and protect Piper, will she accept her place in the pack or die fighting what she doesn’t understand?

Paul Holton is the leader of the Racinitine Pack. Rising to his position from bloodline and destiny hadn’t been easy for the strong willed young man. Having sacrificed many of the things his kind long for in their reticent existence, Paul knew all he forfeited had been for the greater good.

Kinzey Sloane had been finding ways to get herself into trouble ever since she was a rambunctious young child. Now a reporter for the small press, The Grand Lake Gazette, she was determined to make a name for herself no matter what it costs.

When Paul crosses paths with the tenacious and gorgeous red head, Kinzey he knows he’s in trouble. Not only can he see the fire in her, but he can feel it as well. But when Kinzey gets too close to his secrets, he is faced with making a choice that could not only change his world, but the only life his pack has ever known.

Having a baby is never as simple as it sounds.

Getting snatched off the street wasn’t what Tina had in mind when she said she wanted a break from her over protective mate. And at eight and half months pregnant, she has no chance of fighting him off.

When Connor senses Tina's pain, he knows she’s gone into labor early. But he still has no idea where she is, or who’s with her. With his mate in danger and his Leap threatened, Connor's protective instincts surge into overdrive as he faces down an enemy he didn't see coming.

Essex Baker’s bloodline was hunted down and murdered when he was a small child. He is the last werewolf in the Baker pack and has a constant target on his back. Taken in by a North American pack that protects those pursued by evil, he has worked his way up the ranks to the position of beta. He has trained with MYTHS agents and is committed to protecting humans and supernaturals alike from the evils in the world. When witch, Haven Carson, is brought to the pack for protection, the need to keep her safe overpowers him. The same warlocks that murdered his family are chasing her. She too is the last of her coven. Haven’s essence calls to his wolf in a way that no woman ever has. She is his mate, but she’s harboring a dark secret, one that could destroy Essex.

Haven Carson is on the run. A madman is chasing her and intent on killing her. With nowhere else to turn, she asks her estranged adoptive father for help. He sends her to a little town in Tennessee to a man named Essex Baker. Being around Essex calls to something buried deep inside her. It scares her but also intrigues her.

She doesn’t believe in love. It is cruel and she’s seen firsthand how it can betray a person. Still, there is something about him that draws her in no matter how hard she tries to fight it. Secrets surround her and the more she is around Essex the more things begin to come to light.

Can she trust the man her heart desires or is he a part of the problem and helping the man determined to kill her?

Archeologist Lyra Mayet has uncovered more than she bargained for when she finds the tomb of Horemheb's daughter, Namire. Hidden inside is the key that holds the balance of good.

Anubis' second, Asim has been given the mission by the Egyptian God's to retrieve the Feather of Justice before Set's followers destroy it and bring about a world of chaos.

Teaming up, the two race to reacquire the Feather from Chao's hands before it's too late. Will they succeed or will the world succumb to the Evil waiting to arise?

The Veil between worlds has broken. Otherkin - the Fae, Shifters, Vampires, have all invaded our world, taking slaves, destroying the world as we knew it.

Now, Humans struggle to survive in a world that is no longer theirs to rule. War with the Otherkin has taken so much. What will it take for peace? Harmony? Unity? Sanctuary?

For Jay, A human woman surviving in this harsh new life, it comes in the form of a wounded shifter, Bolt.

But will their people tear them apart, or will they find some way to be together as the Fates intended?

Review @EvangelineA - Stone Cold Fox by Evangeline Anderson (Cougarville #3)




Stone Cold Fox
Cougarville #3
by Evangeline Anderson

Goodreads blurb:  Cougarville's mechanic, and resident Alpha fox, shelters a mysterious woman who ignites his protective animal instincts when evil forces try to tear them apart.

Jo Ferrell has been cast out of her home for reasons she doesn’t understand. The grey streak in her hair is gone, her body is younger, and there’s an ominous shadow chasing her. With nowhere else to go, Jo finds shelter in a shed whose owner she wants nothing to do with—but he’s too much to resist.

Reese Cooper has never felt a pull towards a woman like he does towards Jo and his Fox is desperate to claim her as their mate. After offering her a place to stay, Reese finds it difficult to resist his beautiful new roommate. But when dark magic threatens their happiness, Reese will use all of his strength to protect the woman he loves…if he’s not too late.

Stone Cold Fox is a fun, sexy, exciting read that will make readers want to revisit Cougarville again and again.

*Author's Note: Though I have tried to handle the subject sensitively, certain events in this book may make anyone with a history of past abuse upset. Please read responsibly.*


About the Author:  Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing.

She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for it. To her delight, she found that it was actually possible to get money for having a dirty mind and she has been writing paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.

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!

This is the 3rd book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the violence and steamy content.  In this book, there is the sensitive topics abduction and threat of rape.  I mention it for those readers who may be affected by these topics.  I also highly recommend reading the books in order because it makes it so much more together!!

This is Coop’s story, and it starts where book 2 ended with the crying girl in the his shed.  Okay first off Coop is a very unique shifter which I think is very cool, but I won’t tell you how he is unique because you need to read it yourself.  Jo has had some bad things happen to her in her past, and she isn’t over them.  She has basically hidden herself away, but she never healed.  Jo is also very unique.  This world is very intriguing, and I loved every minute of it.  I can’t wait for the next book which I assume with involve a certain Alpha Dire Wolf.

Evangeline makes this world come alive, and I like it more and more with each book!  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

I highly recommend to shifter fans who want a unique story especially if you are already a fan of this series!

Review @danamariebell - Sorry, Charlie by Dana Marie Bell (Poconos Pack #3)




Sorry, Charlie
Poconos Pack #3
by Dana Marie Bell

Goodreads blurb:  For her, there’s only one fish in the sea.

Poconos Pack, Book 3

Charlie Lowe is going crazy. Why does her mate run from her? Is it her hair? The fact that she’s a Lion to his Wolf? Or are her family connections driving him away? If she didn’t know better, she’d think he was allergic to cats.

Ted Pedrozo loves his fiery Lioness with his whole being. But mating the sister of the Leo? That’s a big hairy deal. What if the Leo—or worse, Charlie—finds out he’s just a dork in wolf’s clothing? Ted never shies away from the tough jobs, but this time he steers clear… until she pounces on him like a catnip toy.

A little flirting, a lot of innuendo, and one dire threat of blackmail later, Charlie has her mate. And, wonder of wonders, he and the laid-back Sebastian Lowe hit it off.

The Leo’s chief bodyguard, on the other hand, won’t be convinced Ted is worthy until he’s passed a few tests. Or made Charlie sorry she chose him.

Warning: This book contains graphic language, explicit sex, and a Lioness going full-on Nala on her Wolf’s furry ass.


About the Author:  Dana Marie Bell wrote her first short story when she was thirteen years old. She attended the High School for Creative and Performing Arts for creative writing, where freedom of expression was the order of the day. When her parents moved out of the city and placed her in a Catholic high school for her senior year she tried desperately to get away, but the nuns held fast, and she graduated with honors despite herself.

Dana has lived primarily in the Northeast (Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, to be precise), with a brief stint on the US Virgin Island of St. Croix. She lives with her soul-mate and husband Dusty, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream stealing cat and a bull terrier that thinks it’s a Pekinese.

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I own the whole set!

The cover is great!  Love it!!!

This is the 3rd book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  It is not mandatory to read in order; however, I think it is better when you do!  This book is only about 76 pages long, and it is a quick read!

This is Charlie (who is Dave’s best friend) and Ted’s story.  Ted is 2nd to Ben, the marshal.  There is some trouble in the beginning and Charlie is not sure what is going on with Ted.  They do figure things out, and there is some action with the Leo’s visit.  I don’t want to ruin the story though.  It was a fun read.

I highly recommend to shifter fans who like the world Dana Marie Bell has created and especially if you like HEA endings!!  I have run out of books in this world for the moment, so I can’t wait for when I can get the rest of the Halle Shifter series for more of this world!
