5 Stars for Dangerous Territory by Cari Z. #MM #Shapeshifter @author_cariz

1.5

Title: Dangerous Territory
Author Name & Publisher: Cari Z. (Less Than Three Press)
Publication Date: January 13, 2016

Synopsis

With his father barely in the ground and his sister married to a scheming bastard, Carter is on the verge of losing the family ranch. His only chance at holding onto his inheritance is to get his cattle to market before his brother-in-law. That means braving Mason Canyon, which on top of being snake-infested and easily flooded, is also shifter territory. Most clans would just as soon shoot humans as look at them.

His only hope of making it is to trust the shifter who’s agreed to help him, and pray that Rani won’t double-cross him. If Carter doesn’t go he loses everything, and if he doesn’t make it there his family is as good as dead.

So I do not know if this Novella was a start to a series but can I say I really hope it was!!

I loved the way this author wrote this story and these characters!

Carter’s father has passed and now his sisters husband is trying to take over his family ranch. So Carter get help from the local tribe of shifters and Rani comes to help him get through a dangerous pass with his cattle to sell. This pass has a lot of snakes and can I say with the shifter that Rani is which I have never read before and loved! I thought this story line was perfect and the way these men were with each other was so sweet.
So all together I really loved this Novella!
I would definitely recommend this book!

3 Stars from Omega Groupie (Fated Date Agency #6) by Abraham Steele #Paranormal #MM

1.5

Title: Omega Groupie (Fated Date Agency #6)
Author Name: Abraham Steele
Publication Date & Length: September 28, 2015 – 247 pgs

Synopsis

For years, Bailey’s life has revolved around his adoration for Lock. The young shifter abandoned all his old hobbies and friends in order to worship the gorgeous rock star. Other people laugh off his theories about the seductive singer being in the closet, but Bailey is a hundred percent sure that it’s true.

When he doesn’t manage to get tickets to Lock’s latest concert, the omega fanboy comes up with a better plan. He’ll wait outside and get Lock to autograph his back, then get the signature tattooed. Nothing could possibly go wrong.

Lock Claybourne doesn’t usually pop boners while making his way through crowds of screaming fans. He’s strangely attracted to the boy outside his show – and not just because of the bold request that he makes. The electric hum that crackles between them is too intense to be imaginary. Lock needs to see this particular fan again, even if he can’t explain why.

But loving Bailey doesn’t fit with Lock’s bad boy image… and not everyone profiting from his success wants what’s best for him.

Omega’s Obsession is Book 6 of the Fated Date Agency series. It also stands alone as a complete 240-page gay shifter mpreg romance novel.

Guaranteed HEA ending with no cliffhangers!

Bailey is a super fan of rock star Lock. He follows everything about him and loves all of his music.
Lock meets Bailey and as a alpha wolf he feels a instant attraction to Bailey he does not really understand.

Bailey took fan to a whole new level in this book and came off as way to stalker to me to the point it was just creepy. I get that he was attracted to Lock but there is a point to me where it is just to much and through a lot of this book it was that way for me.

Then there was Lock and the way he treated Bailey in this book which I also was not a fan of.

I liked the authors pretense of this story but I just did not like these characters or the way they acted with each other.

So I am sad to say this book was just not for me…

Another super steamy add to this series!

You get Yves Luc’s twin brother and Rueben who is a wolf shifter in this book. The way these two were together and how they could not keep their hands off each other was one of the reasons I really liked this book!
There was also Jonny’s, Luc’s, not telling lol and not telling bed scene.. Well technically it was not on a bed I think lol bit you get my drift. Now that was so damn hot!!! Usually not a fan of the main MC couple incorporating another couple to their bed but the way the author wrote this one was perfect!
Yves is after emeralds and other gems so he can perform a ceremony to bring someone back from the dead. Rueben is there to protect him and when they found out what extra passenger Yves picked up on they way… Just wow! Talk about a twist! I do not want to give anything more away because this was such a fast read.

So I will leave this review with I really liked this book!

I would recommend this book!

YAY! We get to meet and know Yves in this story and he’s as much fun to connect to as Luc was!
I will say that I was happy to see that we finally get a some satisfaction in the whole, he’s hot, but I’m yours now situation that we got hints about in Belling the Cat.
This was a fun, action packed story with shifters and vamps and crazy emerald stones and so much more…. I loved it.
There was some crazy surprises that I enjoyed along the way too.

So for a super fast read this book was extremely steamy!!

Luc and Jonny were perfect for each other in this book. Jonny’s vampire to Luc’s Jaguar was really awesome to see especially when you can see how much they really care about each other.
Jonny catches Luc breaking into his office but Luc does not get what he broke in after so Luc tries again the next night. Jonny makes him a deal to give Luc what is after for something Jonny wants.. I am going to leave it at that because this book being so short I do not want to give any away.

I will leave this review with I really liked this Novella!

I would recommend this book!

This was the first book in this story that I read, but I didn’t feel like I was being dumped into a storyline or lost so I’d fully say this was a standalone in the series.
I loved that the shifter is more comfortable in his cat skin than his human form since we so often see shifters stay more human than their other form. I also LOVED the playfulness of Luc with both Jonny and the other weres.
There was a bit of drama, a bit of heat and all around I would say it was a good book with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end.
However, my one complaint is that sometimes I would get lost with who was doing what to the other when the two men were together. They both liked to bite and claw each other and sometimes I didn’t know what was going on to whom so that left me confused and threw off the pacing to me because I had to reread parts over and over or just keep going and hope I caught up.

5 Stars for Forging the Future (Change of Heart #5) by Mary Calmes #MM #Shapeshifter

1.5

Title: Forging the Future (Change of Heart #5)
Author Name & Publisher: Mary Calmes (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: June 29, 2015 – 174 pgs

Synopsis

Jin Church is back where he started, alone, wandering, and uncertain of his path. It’s not by choice but by circumstance, as he remembers he’s a werepanther… but not much else. He knows one thing for sure—he needs to find the beautiful blond man who haunts his dreams.

Logan Church is trapped in a living hell. His mate is missing, his tribe is falling apart, and he’s estranged from the son he loves with all his heart. His world is unraveling without his mate by his side, and he has no one to blame but himself.

If Jin can regain his memory and Logan can overcome the threats to his leadership, then perhaps they can resume their lives. The question is: Is that what they want? Back to the same house, the same tribe, the same troubles? They can choose from various roads leading to their future… or they can forge their own path.

This book was a awesome addition to this series!
So we get Jin and Logan again with this book but this time Jin has lost his memory after something bad happens with his son.
When Logan goes to get Jin is when Logan’s family decides to over throw him and put his youngest brother in charge. Well let me tell you that was only a little bit of what happens in this book. There was just so much going on in this book and I do not want to give away any spoilers.
You get more of the love between these two men and the love they have for their son while they are dealing with everything that is going on around them.
I have to say I am not a huge fan of Logan’s brothers at all anymore after this book. The things they do to Logan and Jin ugh!! It was just so wrong and you should never treat your family that way at all!
So with this book you get angst and action along with so much steam which I really loved how everything came together in this book! The way the author has created this shifter world and these characters was honestly just amazing! I was on the edge of my seat through this whole book just hoping for the beat for Jin and Logan and their son.

All together I really loved this book and this series!
I would definitely recommend this series!

4 Stars for Crucible of Fate (Change of Heart #4) by Mary Calmes #MM #Shapeshifter

1.5

Title: Crucible of Fate (Change of Heart #4)
Author Name & Publisher: Mary Calmes (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: November 21, 2012 – 234 pgs

Synopsis

In the secret city of Sobek, Domin Thorne is making his way as the newly chosen semel-aten, the leader of the werepanther world. He aspires to make sweeping changes—he’s set goals for himself and the people he chose to bring with him, modeling his reign after that of his friend, Logan Church. But Domin may have set too lofty a goal: his normal leadership style isn’t working.

While juggling a homesick Crane, a moody Mikhail, a bullwhip-wielding Taj, servants with murderous intentions, a visiting ex, and a mate on a dangerous goodwill mission, Domin has to figure out his new role alone. He also must determine how to deal with a conspiracy, all the while falling hard for a man who, for the first time in Domin’s life, reciprocates that love. Whether Domin is ready or not, Fate has stepped in to teach him a lesson: internal threats are just as dangerous as external ones.

This book was another really good addition to this series!
So instead of getting Jin and Logan with this book we get Domin who is the new semel-aten and Yuri his mate.
Domin is trying to help with the people he has brought with him in his new role who are all having problems while at the same time learning his new role in leadership. There really was so much going on in this book I some times had a hard time following it all so it would take me a little bit to catch up.
You get your angst in this book and action while also getting the steam from Domin and Yuri. You definitely feel the love Domin has for Yuri his mate and vice versa. You get to see Jin and Logan in this book too along with other characters from this series.
I really liked where this author took this story because I have always wanted to know more about Domin especially after what happened between Yuri and him in the last book. I was definitely on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading this book and I could not put it down!

All together I really liked this book!
I would recommend this book!

TWO 4 Stars for His Omega (The Werewolves of Manhattan #1) by A.C. Katt #MM #Paranormal

I will admit this one took me awhile to get into and sometimes Armand’s over the top possessive attitude would get on my nerves. It was just a little to much sometimes but other then that I thought this book was really good.
So Seth comes running out of Alley after almost being killed. Well he runs right up to Arman’s limo and starts pounding on the door for help. Well as soon as Armand scents his mate is Seth let me say he did not let him out of his sight again after that.
You get danger in this book and steam which was really good. But I am not sure how I feel about Seth’s character after this book because the way he just accepted everything so quickly was hard for me to wrap my head around to be honest.
So all together I did like this book even though some parts were a little annoying with Armand over possessive attitude and Seth’s easy acceptance of everything. I also did really like the way this author built this shifter world in this book.

What drew me to this book was werewolves in Manhattan. I usually read about them out west in or near the forest. So the idea of werewolves in a big city like Manhattan was very intriguing.

The plot line is incredible. Reminds me of a fairy tale of the Prince falling in love with a commoner. This time, though it’s a poor homeless young man who was kicked to the curb by his father being rescued by the Alpha.

The beginning of this book was a little difficult to read because of Armond being so 19th century formal in his speech and Sean being very quick to accept everything. Once you get into the middle of the book and after the wedding then everything just falls into place. The book greatly improves, the typos and such diminishes and the plot line accelerates and becomes really great. I love the ending as there was a lot of action and suspense and you never knew what was going to happen.

I would recommend this book as long as you can stick with it and know that it will get better and ignore the editorial mistakes. The plot line is really great and you won’t be disappointed.
