CoverTitle: Predator and Prey (The Shifters #9)
Author Name & Publisher: M.D. Grimm (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: January 13, 2016 – 107 pgs

Synopsis
Vietnam War vet turned deep-sea treasure hunter Digger Sullivan scratches out a living, and this new commission is just another job—albeit an exciting one—off the Florida coast in 1977. But while exploring the area, Digger and his crew encounter a lot more sharks than they expected.

Reef and his shark shifter clan are charged with protecting a vital, magical secret—two of four scrolls that, when brought together, could annihilate shifters across the world. But Reef can’t keep his head in the game around this intriguing diver, and it’s not long before Digger takes one of the scrolls topside. Reef now has two missions: seduce Digger and recapture the scroll. Despite his attraction to Digger, Reef’s priority must be reclaiming the scroll.

But when Reef’s true identity is exposed, Digger is scared and appalled and rejects him. Yet Digger might change his mind when his crew is captured by the very person who commissioned them, and Reef and his shark clan are the only things standing between them and death.

I jumped into this series with book. This short story packed a lot in. There was action, suspense, sexy times, thoughtful conversations, story building and character development.
Digger and Reef actually are quite perfect for each other. They understand each other in ways that mean the most for relationships. Once Digger got over the shock of Reef being a shark, he knew he loved him. It goes to show love always wins.
The back story intrigues me and now that the action of saving the scrolls has begun, I am more intrigued. I am now going to go back to the beginning and start the whole series and continue with the series when each book continues to be published.

FOUR 5 Star Reviews for Rise & Fall (THIRDS #4) by Charlie Cochet #MM #Military @charliecochet @dreamspinners

0.2

Title: Rise & Fall (THIRDS #4)
Author Name & Publisher: Charlie Cochet (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: February 2, 2015 – 236pgs

Synopsis

After an attack by the Coalition leaves THIRDS Team Leader Sloane Brodie critically injured, agent Dexter J. Daley swears to make Beck Hogan pay for what he’s done. But Dex’s plans for retribution are short-lived. With Ash still on leave with his own injuries, Sloane in the hospital, and Destructive Delta in the Coalition’s crosshairs, Lieutenant Sparks isn’t taking any chances. Dex’s team is pulled from the case, with the investigation handed to Team Leader Sebastian Hobbs. Dex refuses to stand by while another team goes after Hogan, and decides to put his old HPF detective skills to work to find Hogan before Theta Destructive, no matter the cost.

With a lengthy and painful recovery ahead of him, the last thing Sloane needs is his partner out scouring the city, especially when the lies—however well intentioned—begin to spiral out of control. Sloane is all too familiar with the desire to retaliate, but some things are more important, like the man who’s pledged to stand beside him. As Dex starts down a dark path, it’s up to Sloane to show him what’s at stake, and finally put a name to what’s in his heart.

This series just keeps getting better and better. I found myself wanting to cry at times, laughing out loud at some of the antics that go on, wanting to yell at the characters to “RUN” or “DONT GO IN THERE”. I did not that think that Charlie could make me love Dex and Sloane anymore then possible but it happened.

Throughout this series I continually find myself cheering for the good guys and hoping the bad guys do not win. This is one action packed book that you feel like you know what is going to happen then takes a complete turn and goes he opCharlie Cochet did it again. The author grabbed my attention from the first sentence in Thirds-Rack & Ruin. This book is once again a Home run for Charlie.

Dex, Sloane, Cael, Ash, and the rest of the Thirds team is back again working hard to take down the bad guys while trying to save as many lives as they can and staying safe in the process.

In this book we learn more about Ash and more about his past. Along the way I really started to question exactly what type of guy Ash really is and if he was the mole that everyone was trying to find.

Dex and Sloane still continue to work at their work relationship along with their personal relationship.

Through all the trails and tribulations each of the characters face, I cannot help but feel their pain, their frustration, their happiness, their wariness, and all the other emotions that Charlie has been able to pull off in a single book.

As I said in the beginning, I was hooked from the get go. It is hard to put down a book that you feel like you are apart of to do simple things like eat, sleep, clean, etc and this is definitely one of those books.

I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a book that has romance, action, mystery, and a well unfolded story line.

This story had it all! It starts exactly where Rack & Ruin ended and let me tell you…thank goodness because that ending, I mean…I don’t think my heart was able to take it if it started anywhere else. My heart was in complete turmoil.
The beginning… An explosion!!! It makes you and Dex crumble. As much as I love Dex’s humor, we get see to see his soft, teddy bear, loving side. We also get a few uh-oh moments, holding your breath with Tony.
The middle… More couple development with Ash/Cael and Calvin/Hobbes with their emotions and possessiveness starting to show. More humor from Dex. More insights to the emotional side of the Therians which was needed, to really understand the difference of humans verse the shifters. Of course, hot and steamy sex from Dex and Sloane and oh my, my, my. Sloane is very much more hot being protective and alpha. The claiming? Holy hotness!!!
The ending… Tony is such a crack up. He is being a true dad to his two boys, or shall I say to the intended love of his two boys. He brings Old Betsy out to play with Sloane and Ash. Cael and Dex are just too funny when Tony comes in. But Sloane is pretty much let off the hook for even attempting to truly love the crazy Dex. But Ash? Oh, poor lion. Lion meets big bad daddy with a bat of the man I love, and I would lose my voice as well. But Tony just cracks me up. Thank goodness I can go straight into Against the Grain to find out how that conversation goes.
This story just keeps you going with action, humor and smexy times. It is a fabulous story to set up the reader for Cael & Ash and Calvin & Hobbs.

This book picks up right where Rack & Ruin left off. When Sloane is almost killed Dex decides to take things into his own hands. There is so much in this book, you have the recovery of Sloane, Dex lying to Sloane, and Sloane knowing that Dex is lying. A team working together, because they are family and will do anything for each other, action, tension and lastly, love. Each book gets better and better and I fall in love more and more with Dex and Sloane and all the others on the team. I can’t wait to jump into the next book to see what happens next. I seriously hope that Ash and Cael get their stuff together, I wanna see them happy!!!

Just when I was starting to think that this series wouldn’t have any more surprises, this book comes along. I will freely admit there were moments of tears as well as laugh-out-loud moments. Charlie Cochet once again pulls out all the stops with this great THIRDS adventure.
Although heartbreaking at times, it’s really interesting to see Dex’s detective side come out. His struggles are shown in a very real and relatable way. This story also delves deeper into the mysteries of the Therians and more specifics about the human-animal dynamic, which I find fascinating.
It’s great to see the core cast of characters grow as Lou and Austen take on more important roles in this book. I hope to see more of them as the story continues.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys not only a great M/M Romance story but also a strong genre plot (Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Shapeshifters, Mystery and Crime).

FOUR 5 Star Reviews for Rack & Ruin (THIRDS #3) by Charlie Cochet #MM #Military @charliecochet @dreamspinners

0.2

Title: Rack & Ruin (THIRDS #3)
Author Name & Publisher: Charlie Cochet (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 7, 2014 – 206 pgs

Synopsis

New York City’s streets are more dangerous than ever with the leaderless Order of Adrasteia and the Ikelos Coalition, a newly emerged Therian group, at war. Innocent civilians are caught in the crossfire and although the THIRDS round up more and more members of the Order in the hopes of keeping the volatile group from reorganizing, the members of the Coalition continue to escape and wreak havoc in the name of vigilante justice.

Worse yet, someone inside the THIRDS has been feeding the Coalition information. It’s up to Destructive Delta to draw out the mole and put an end to the war before anyone else gets hurt. But to get the job done, the team will have to work through the aftereffects of the Therian Youth Center bombing. A skirmish with Coalition members leads Agent Dexter J. Daley to a shocking discovery and suddenly it becomes clear that the random violence isn’t so random. There’s more going on than Dex and Sloane originally believed, and their fiery partnership is put to the test. As the case takes an explosive turn, Dex and Sloane are in danger of losing more than their relationship.

This is a great continuation of the THIRDS story. This series continues to be highly entertaining, interesting, and exciting on multiple levels.
In Rack and Ruin there is a lot more conflict inside the THIRDS team. It’s interesting to see how they manage to hold it together enough to get the job done as the interpersonal issues come up. I love getting to know Ash more in this and having him more humanized. (Therianized?) Ash becomes a real character instead of being simply Dex’s adversary. In general, Charlie Cochet continues to do a great job creating complex and lovable characters.
I have one suggestion for potential readers. This book ends on a cliff hanger. If you already love this series and expect that you’ll be moving on to the third (Rise and Fall), you might want to have it on hand to be able to jump right into it.
Amanda

This is the third book in the series, which you should read in order. I must say this is my favorite so far. As always Dex keeps you laughing and on your toes with his feistiness. Sloane is becoming so much more affectionate with Dex and it just makes my heart melt. The book has its fair share of action and we learn more about Ash and why he is a jerk and when we find out, well, you can’t help but understand. I will say I shed a tear while reading some parts of this book as well. This one does leave the reader hanging at the end, so I can’t wait to jump into book four!
Angie
FiveStars
This series has not stopped in the wow factor. We continue getting to see Dex and Sloane progress into the solid sexy couple that we all know they are.
 
In this story, we get more character development about the characters, and how they interact with each other and their pasts. Sloane and Ash’s discussions about them growing up, ugh….tears.  I am much more looking forward to Calvin/Hobbs and Cael/Ash. Oh, Ash, you are going to be a heart breaker when your story comes.
 
There is more of Sloane licking and rubbing Dex (I think Dex secretly loves it.). There is more sexy times, and boy, can these two light up the pages. They can also be sweet and real, and their deep discussions make you want to love them more.  Dex continues to be the funny man with what come out of his mouth….and let’s just say, the Dex and Ash stand-off about Dex’s pre-birthday party party….oh yeah, Dex better just run from Ash.
 
The continued story line of why there are THIRDS, keeps you balanced so this isn’t just a love story. There were intense moments that kept you on your seat, especially the ending. I mean, that was the mother of all cliffhangers….I couldn’t decide if I wanted to throw my kindle or be thankful enough that I had #4 (Rise & Fall) ready to go. Yeah, I had to read the first chapter of that one before writing the review, because damn, my heart couldn’t take the suspense.
 
Overall, I am still enjoying this series, and everything about just gets better. There has not been any downtime or lull in the reading.

FOUR 5 Star Review for Blood and Thunder (THIRDS #2) by Charlie Cochet #MM #Military @charliecochet @dreamspinners

0.2

Title: Blood & Thunder (THIRDS #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Charlie Cochet (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: August 4, 2014 – 240 pgs

Synopsis

When a series of bombs go off in a Therian youth center, injuring members of THIRDS Team Destructive Delta, and causing a rift between agents Dexter J. Daley and Sloane Brodie, peace seems unattainable. Especially when a new and frightening group, the Order of Adrasteia, appears to always be a step ahead. With panic and intolerance spreading and streets becoming littered with the Order’s propaganda, hostility between Humans and Therians grows daily. Dex and Sloane, along with the rest of the team, are determined to take down the Order and restore peace, not to mention settle a personal score. But the deeper the team investigates the bombings, the more they believe there’s a more sinister motive than a desire to shed blood and spread chaos.

Discovering the frightful truth behind the Order’s intent forces Sloane to confront secrets from a past he thought he’d left behind for good, a past that could not only destroy him and his career, but also the reputation of the organization that made him all he is today. Now more than ever, Dex and Sloane need each other, and, along with trust, the strength of their bond will mean the difference between justice and all-out war.

I have to say this is a book that o could not put down. I started reading it this morning and finished it tonight. That should tell you something. Blood and Thunder picked up pretty much at the point that Hell & High Water ended. This book was full of action packed adventure. Of course you have your same characters in this book as book 1 did and Dex and Sloane do not let you down. Dex is his still funny, caring, loving, loyal self and Sloane is still trying to move on and get over losing Gabe. Sloane finally starts to realize that he has to make a choice to either let Dex into his life and open up to him about his past and his fears or he has to let him go.

Again Charlie Cochet nailed it with this book because you could feel the fear, the happiness, the loss, the pain and the love the characters feel in this book. You can picture exactly what is happening and you feel as if you are there.

I would recommend this book to readers in a heart beat.

I loved the first book in the THIRDS series, and this one lived up to my expectations. Charlie Cochet tells a story that is suspenseful and dramatic while it’s also funny and sexy.
In this second book of the series she does a great job of delving deeper into Sloane’s mysterious past and showing his struggle with moving forward – both for himself and for a potential relationship with Dex. I love how the alternating perspective between Sloane and Dex allows the reader to see everything from both sides. For me it makes all the aspects of the story richer and more meaningful.
Endings to books in a long series like this can be tricky. The author needs to strike a balance of a satisfying ending while also enticing the reader to keep reading. I think Charlie nails the ending here, and I’m excited for the next one.
All in all, the story and characters are revealed more and more, sucking the reader deeper into the scary, exhilarating, fun and crazy world of THIRDS.

Blood & Thunder picks up right where Hell & High Water ends, you really need to read the books in order to get the full gist of what is going on. While I still thought this book was wordy and too detailed at times, I am either getting used to the authors writing style or just too into the story now that it doesn’t bother me as much. I will have to say there was a scene or two that had me tearing up and my heart constricting. A few things were revealed right at the end of the first book now the mission isn’t just to stop the Order, it’s personal. The back and forth with Dex and Sloane is still going on, we all wonder how much more Dex can take without getting his heart broken. When members of the THIRDS get hurt we see a few glimpses into possible future relationships amongst team members, not that we all didn’t think they would eventually happen. Action packed and full of emotions, this was another good book and I am jumping into the third book today, I have to see what happens next!
Angie
FiveStars
This follow-up was better than the first, but only because the stage has been set, so you can just let loose all the laughter, ride the action, and enjoy the camaraderie with the team.
 
Even though the stage has been set, we still dig into the relationships being evolved. Dex and Sloane are smoking hot together. Although Dex is outgoing, humorous, smart, he is so patient with Sloane. We get to find out why Dex is obsessed with the 80s and it both breaks and melts your heart.
 
There is more action and nail biting scenes in this book than the first, more depth into the shifting and PTSC. Speaking of shifting, the scene with Dex and Sloane at training just cracked me up. I wondered what Sloane’s payback was for the song incident and well I found out and just couldn’t stop laughing.
 
Overall, this book has a good balance of hot action…ummm in the streets and in the sheets, laughter (karaoke night and the team’s banter with each other) and romance (I am really intrigued with Cael/Ash and Calvin/Hobbs).  On to the third pronto!

TWO 5 Star and 4 Star Reviews for Hell and High Water (THIRDS #1) by Charlie Cochet #MM #Military @charliecochet @dreamspinners

0.2

Title: Hell & High Water (THIRDS #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Charlie Cochet (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: July 7, 2014 – 296 pgs

Synopsis

When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences—and the media frenzy—aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed. Instead, his adoptive father—a sergeant at the Therian-Human Intelligence Recon Defense Squadron otherwise known as the THIRDS—pulls a few strings, and Dex gets recruited as a Defense Agent.

Dex is determined to get his life back on track and eager to get started in his new job. But his first meeting with Team Leader Sloane Brodie, who also happens to be his new jaguar Therian partner, turns disastrous. When the team is called to investigate the murders of three HumaniTherian activists, it soon becomes clear to Dex that getting his partner and the rest of the tightknit team to accept him will be a lot harder than catching the killer—and every bit as dangerous.

I just finished reading “Thirds – Hell & High Water book 1” by Charlie Cochet this morning. I have to say that I was blown away by this book. This is the first book I have read by Charlie Cochet and I have now found a new author that I will continue to follow and read books from. This book has everything a reader could ask for in it. There is heartache, love, distrust, acceptance, mystery, sadness, happiness, seriousness, and light heartedness. I fell in love with the characters of this book. First there is Dex…..Dex is one of those people that everyone loves and wants to be around. He is full of spunk. He views the world as a glass always full type of person. He is one of those people who wants to make everyone smile and laugh at times when stress could spiral Individuals into the darkness. But at the same time he knows when to be serious and is a person who you can depend on in any situation. He is the heart of the “Thirds” team. He brings a broken team back to life and starts healing their broken hearts. Then there is Sloane….Sloane is a broken hearted Thirds team leader who lost the love of his life Gabe, which also happened to be his partner on the Thirds team. With Sloane you can feel the hurt and pain rolling off of him in waves. He is also one of those individuals that you are rooting for to find a happy ending. Then there is the team itself….a bunch of misfits that make up the perfect partnership to fight for the rights of the humans and Therians.

Most would read the description of this book and think that it is a book about paranormals but is so NOT. This is a book that could become a reality in the future.

This book is a book that catches your attention from the first page and will not let you go until the very last page. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

I highly recommend this book. You will definitely enjoy the read.

I have owned this book since May of 2015 and never read it. I am kicking myself for not reading it as soon as I bought it! I normally don’t read books with shifters or paranormal aspects to them, they usually aren’t my cup of tea but everyone raved about this series so I thought I would give the first book a try. While I found the book to be really wordy and too detailed at times I really enjoyed Dex and his personality and his wit. I would love working with someone like that, makes the day go by, but I can see where at times it would get on your nerves. Sloane is the hot alpha jaguar who has secrets that we will hopefully find out about in future books. Dex and Sloane are made partners at THIRDS when Dex testifies against his partner and Sloane loses his partner when he is murdered. The secondary characters are wonderful as well. The banter and camaraderie between all the THIRDS members is great and made the story. I can’t wait to jump into the second book and see what happens next.

Well, wasn’t that just the strawberry on top of the cupcake. I absolutely loved it. Ok, I will confess, I am ashamed I hadn’t read this series yet, but after reading this one, I couldn’t stop and I binge read the whole series up to the current. So now, here I am, thinking about each one. I just can’t. This whole series is fanfreakingtastic, and must never be passed up.
 
Dex…..Dex, Dex, Dex. How can you not love Dex? I mean, sexy, bold, 80s lover, sugar lover, full of energy, quick witted and so full of humor, that if you don’t catch yourself from laughing out loud from him, something is terribly wrong with you. He is the perfect opposite of his new partner, Sloane. Dex may act like a man-child at times, but he is mature and not a child. We all have child like tendencies in ourselves. It is a shame that all of us cannot embrace it and rock it like Dex does. He is an adult and take responsibilities seriously, but he just has the lovable optimistic side of him.
 
Sloane is the broody, mysterious black panther Therian Team Leader. Tall, dark and sexy just doesn’t even cover it. He  has deep emotional pain, that makes you want to dive in, find out what it is and just hold him. But let’s leave that to Dex because he does it so well. The chemistry between these two becomes almost too hot from the first look on. These two were fun both in and out of the sheets, and on and off the job.
 
The rest of the team of Destructive Delta was a perfect blend of everything. They were family. Something was wrong and when Dex showed up he saw it immediately. Dex was the perfect addition and what the team needed. The banter between everyone and Dex was funny. I loved Ash and Cael, then Calvin and Hobbs, the ladies,  and can’t forget the sarge, Tony.
 
Overall, this story had great build up, character development, some mystery, lots of humor and love, family and friendship through the roof. Besides we have Military + Shifters = Sexy Badass.

5 Star Review for Bound, Vol. 2 (Little Goddess #3) by Amy Lane #Romance #Paranormal @AmyMaclane

Cover

Title: Bound, Vol. 2 (Little Goddess #3)
Author Name & Publisher: Amy Lane (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: December 22, 2015 – 260 pgs

Synopsis

Cory’s newly bound family is starting to find its footing, which is a good thing because danger after danger threatens, and Green can’t be there nearly as often as he’s needed. As Cory learns to face the challenges of ruling the hill alone, she’s also juggling a menage relationship with three lovers-with mixed results.

But with each new challenge, one lesson becomes crystal clear: she can’t be queen without each of the men who look to her, and the people she loves aren’t safe unless she takes on that queendom with all of the intelligence and courage in her formidable heart.

But sometimes even intelligence, courage, and steadily increasing magic aren’t enough to do the job, and suddenly the role of Cory’s lovers becomes more crucial than ever. Nobody is strong enough to succeed in every task, and Cory finds that the most painful lesson she and her lovers can learn is not just how to deal with failure. Cory needs to learn that one woman is only so powerful, and she needs to choose wisely who sits outside her circle of family, and who is bound eternally in her heart.

This was another great installation of The Little Goddess series. It is just as riveting and wonderful as all the other books in the series have been. I’m sad to know the series is coming to a close and dreading it from the hints that have been dropped about something bad happening, but I still HAVE to know what happens!
The characters are great and even though there is a long list of them, it’s easy to keep track of who is who because of the way they are introduced through out the series.
I loved that we got to see a lot of development between Bracken, Green and Cory in this story along with the steps made with Nicky toward a healthier and more loving relationship than what it was at the end of the last book.
As usual, Amy Lane blew my socks off with this story and left me in a huge book hangover because there simply isn’t other books out there written like hers.

5 Stars for Wounded, Vol. 1 (Little Goddess #2 Vol. 1) by Amy Lane #M/M/F #Paranormal @amylane

25780125

Title: Wounded Vol. 1 (Little Goddess #2 Vol.1)
Author Name & Publisher: Amy Lane (DSP Publications)
Publication Date & Length: June 23rd 2015- 200 pages

Synopsis

Cory fled the foothills to deal with the pain of losing Adrian, and Green watched her go. Separately, they could easily grieve themselves to death, but when an old enemy of Green’s brings them back together, they can no longer hide from their grief—or their love for each other.

But Cory’s grieving has cut her off from the emotional stability that’s the source of her power, and Green’s worry for her has left them both weak. Cory’s strength comes from love, and she finds that when she’s in the presence of Adrian’s best friend, Bracken, she feels stronger still.

But defeating their enemy is by no means a sure thing. As the attacks against Cory and her lovers keep coming, it becomes clear that their love might not be enough if they can’t heal each other—and themselves—from the wounds that almost killed them all.

The farther I get into this story, the more I love Cory and the men
around her.. and the women too. In this part we get to see as Cory is
forced to grow up a bit and learn how to deal with the loss of her
love.

I absolutely love that every single person we meet in these books had
an important role and no one is just a fluff character. There is so
much that goes on in each book that it’s a constant on the edge of
your seat read.

I have such a hard time with this being the beginning of Amy Lane’s
work since I’ve loved so many of her more recent books, but this one
is SO good I feel like people will miss it because it isn’t a newer
book. Their loss completely. The characters are so complex and the
story is so intricately woven it’s simply amazing.

This is where I really started to fall in love with Bracken and all
that he is willing to do for Cory even though she didn’t see him
‘that’ way in the first book.
