4.5 Star Review for In From The Cold (Coyote’s Call #2) by Bailey Bradford – #MM #Wereshifters @BaileyBFun4Me @Totally_Bound

1.2

Title: In From The Cold (Coyote’s Call #2)
Author Name: Bailey Bradford
Publication Date: May 8, 2015

Synopsis

Running away twenty years ago didn’t mean Gael could ever escape his past.

Gael Martinez fled the small Texas town of Del Rey the minute he turned sixteen. Legal or not, he had to leave or end up dead. Life’s been hard, and everything Gael ever hoped for has been stripped from him. He’s close to giving up, so worn down from fighting to live every day. When incredible information reaches him that gives him a reason to hang in there, at least a little longer, Gael is afraid to hope for a better life.

An accidental encounter leads to him being told things have changed with the coyote den that had been floundering in Del Rey years ago. Miller Hudson, the coyote shifter alpha, had found his mate, and the den was now flourishing—and the biggest miracle of all, some of the shifters could now actually shift.

As tempted as that makes him to return, it could all be a bunch of lies and Gael is still hesitant, even though he yearns to go home. There’s no point if he’s only likely to be killed. Dying at another’s hands isn’t the way Gael ever intends to die.

It’s only upon discovering the changes regarding some of the humans in Del Rey that allow Gael to truly consider going home.

What he finds in the small town is more than just a home. He finds himself, and the man he’s always meant to be.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of BDSM, BDSM-related genital torture and spanking, as well as references to fisting and to the sexual abuse of a secondary character.

I was so happy to find this book came back to the den and the men we met in Off Course!
These characters had a completely new dynamic than the previous book so it was nice to watch as their relationship developed even through past trauma and nasty people out for blood.
We felt just how hard it is to be homeless and what it is like to be taken in by people who want to help. It’s not as easy as it would seem.
While Ms. Bradford once again wowed my shorts off with the fluidity and believably in her characters and the plot, I did have issues with some of the consistencies from book one to book two. In book one, they were clean from disease and healed quickly and it didn’t seem like that held true in this one even though one of the men wasn’t a shifter I would think with his enhanced senses some of that would have. Also, at the end when everyone is shifting to their animals and back to human to animal, it was confusing as to which state they were in and there was no mention of the fact that they normally would shred their clothing when shifting and they never redressed before meeting humans again.
Even so I can’t wait for the next part of the story!

5 Star Review for Off Course (Coyote’s Call #1) by Bailey Bradford – #MM #Wereshifters @BaileyBFun4Me @Totally_Bound

Off Course

Title: Off Course (Coyote’s Call #1)
Author Name: Bailey Bradford
Publication Date & Length: November 21, 2014 – 164pgs

Synopsis

Gideon’s worst night ever starts out with a bang that will change his whole life.

Gideon Wells has been cast out of his bear shifter clan for being a curse, and he’s inclined to believe they’re right. After all, everything from fertility rates to shifting abilities have gone down the tube since he was born. Then when his car catches fire and mutant scorpions—he thinks they’re mutants, anyway—almost get him, he’s more certain than ever that he’s bad news.

Not that he’s just going to roll over and die.

Ignoring a prophecy might not be wise, but coyote shifter Miller Hudson has seen and heard too many false prophecies to put any faith in the one proclaiming him to be the alpha and, along with a mystery bear mate, the saviour of the now-defunct coyote den he grew up in. Besides, there’s no need for the den to be brought back together. None of them can shift, so what’s the point?

Then the buzzards circling overhead on the far edge of his property lead him to the very last thing he ever expected to find.

Reader Advisory: This book contains references to and threats of assault and rape, scenes of fisting and mild BDSM.

This was the first book by Bailey Bradford I’ve read, but I’d heard that she was a great author… I can say all the hype is true. She’s amazing. I absolutely loved this book.
The characters were very well developed and watching them grow not only as individual’s but as a couple was really quite nice. It’s amazing how often that is left out of stories.
I literally couldn’t read this fast enough. There is just the right amount of suspense between finding out if the prophecy is true and what happened to poor Roman.
The twist between Gideon looking like the big, dominant guy while Miller was the shorter one who was often presumed to be submissive because of his stature was great.. Appearances aren’t what they seem and they were exactly the opposite and it completely worked for them.
I can’t wait to get to the next book!!! I hope we get to watch as the den embraces their new ability to shift and grow only stronger than what they had when that had been stripped from them.

Gideon is an outcast who must find his own path. He comes from a clan of bears that not only abuse him emotionally, but also abuse him physically. Right away, I wanted to wrap Gideon in a hug. He has this endearing pathetic quality at the beginning of the story. When he finds himself out in the desert of Texas, he knows that he might die. However, he trudges on.

Miller is a pioneer in his community. Despite his not wanting to be the leader, deep down, he knows that he is the leader of his community and somewhat dysfunctional den. There is corruption in his community, violence against his den members and this old prophecy that hangs over his head. Miller has the weight of all of this on him.

When Miller comes across a severely dehydrated and sunburned Gideon, Miller decides to take Gideon back to his trailer to help him. It is there that Gideon finds himself – his self worth. He becomes a major part of Miller’s community and in turn, helps Miller take up responsibility for his den.

There is a dark member of the community who would see any and all gay members destroyed, so it’s up to Gideon and Miller to flush that person out and protect their community.

This was a quick and easy read. The story was pleasant and I really enjoyed how Miller took the time to coax Gideon out of his shell. This story had several lessons on not judging things by how they look and I thought that was a great part of the story – too often people are judged based on appearance rather than their substance. I wish I knew more about what happened to the community at the end. The reader is left with an impression, but no confirmation.
