No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It by Celia Kyle
No Ifs, Ands, or Bears About It - Celia Kyle

This book starts out adorably. Mia has just inherited her grampa’s home and is moving in when she discovers a baby bear cub running for cover.  He’s scared and, awww, he’s crying huge, scared-to-death tears. He’s no regular bear either. He’s a shifter cub.  She tries to soothe the baby bear but soon someone comes a-knocking. It’s the baby’s big, bad uncle and the cub is so terrified Mia decides to keep him (and by keeping him, I mean forever, seriously, she wants to keep him forever) and she tries ignore the clamor. Fortunately the police arrive after a nosy neighbor calls and this is how Mia meets Officer Ky.

 

Ky is also a shifter and leader of his clan. He is immediately smitten with a bad case of the insta-love for the curvy lady and tries to keep it professional but has a hard time controlling his urges. He wants her and he knows she wants him because he can smell her creamy desire . . .  They are drawn together and things are going great but then clan politics and baddies instigate to make their lives and new-found love difficult.

 

I don’t know how to say this kindly so I’m just going to be blunt. This book had zero romance development.  It relied almost entirely on the old “you were made for me, I was made for you” trope. Except in this case, it was more of the “my inner bear approves, that means you’re the One!”  If you like that, you’ll love and adore this book. Me? I’m grumpy and I need a pair to work for it. A little side of suffering never hurts either. I’d also like to get to know a bit about them in the process too. None of this happens here. The only thing keeping them apart were the clan wars, the fact that the clan members didn’t welcome Mia because she was too human and the constant coitus interruptus by clan members who kept busting in with some oh-so-important announcement or another. I need more than that for conflict and when I don’t get it this is the kind of review I have to write.

 

Narration Notes: The audio is read by Kendall Taylor. She has a happy, perky voice well suited to Mia and does a capable enough job with the many grumbly bear-men. She was great. In fact, if it weren’t for her narration, I know I would’ve put this down at the 50% mark.

 

I received a copy of this audiobook from Tantor Media. I hope they don’t regret it!

Zadri (Dragons of Preor, #5) by Erin Tate/Celia Kyle
Zadri (Scifi Alien Weredragon Romance) (Dragons of Preor Book 5) - Celia Kyle,Erin Tate

Delaney Cole found her mate among the Preor only to watch him die—through his own eyes thanks to the Knowing. Now, what’s she supposed to do when she discovers that her second mate is the male who’d killed her first? It doesn’t matter that he’s gorgeous, that his peach scales invite her touch, and his thick muscles make her fingers tingle with the need to caress him. She shouldn’t want such a violent, deadly male, but… she does.

Zadri was born a son of Syh, orphaned and unwanted, and he never imagined actually having a mate. Yet, Delaney is his. Yes, he was the one to rip out her first mate’s throat, but now that he has experienced the Knowing with her, he will not let her go. Her lush curves, inner strength, and unborn young belong to him—wholly and until he takes his final flight.

When others attempt to rip her from his life, he will explain the gravity of their error. Slowly. Painfully. He only hopes he can reach her before they escape.

 

 

Review

 

I enjoy this series and this book is a very good addition. There is a nice build to the romance.

 

The hero is a sweetie. The heroine's back story is sad so it is especially lovely to see her get a happily ever after.

 

We get lots of couple time. Fun!

Rendan (Dragons of Preor #4) by Erin Tate Review
Rendan (Scifi Alien Dragon Romance) (Dragons of Preor Book 4) - Celia Kyle,Erin Tate

Rendan sen Tarkan, Offense Master to the Preor Third Fleet, has found his human mate. She is small compared to him, but her curves, delicious scent, and sky blue eyes call out to his soul. He has waited for a female for over two centuries and he will fight—kill—any who dare attempt to take her. Even one of his own males.

One moment Carla Butler was unemployed and the next she was on the Preor battleship, working as a nurse for human-Preor mates. Oh, and the next moment? That was when she found her sexy, alien pink-scaled mate. Then she watched the muscular dragon shifter get beat to hell. And then she was assigned a condo in Preor Tower on Earth. The person in the condo next door? That sexy, alien pink-scaled male.

Learning about the proud alien warrior isn’t trouble free, but it’s easier than almost dying. Yeah, almost. But the Preor who tried to end her life? Well, he doesn’t quit easily. She only hopes Rendan is there to save her when the alien tries to end her life once again.

 

 

 

 

Review

 

This is a rather sweet fated mate romance with a dragon shifter alien and nurse heroine which a moral compass.

 

The love story is nicely done but the sub plots get tiring,

Review: Taulan (Dragons of Preor #2) by Celia Kyle
Taulan (Scifi Alien Weredragon Romance) (Dragons of Preor Book 2) - Celia Kyle,Erin Tate

Review originally featured at Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Taulan 

 Dragons of Preor #2  
 Celia Kyle  
 Sci-Fi Paranormal Romance  
 February 29th 2016  
 eBook  
 183  
 Bought  

 

He wants to return to Preor and she wants a job, but you don’t always get what you want. 

 

Lana Cooper is down to her last hundred dollars, has no job, and her clunker of a car has finally clunked out. How has her life become such a cluster of horribleness? Oh, right. A guy. Only she doesn’t get a chance to beg for a job. Nope, one walk along the beach changes everything. Oh, she has a job now… as the mate to a hot, hunky Preor dragon male. 

 

Taulan sen Pavon is anxious to return to his home on Preor. Yes, he’d journeyed to Earth in hopes of finding a human mate, but now… Now he would like to heal in the privacy of his aerie. Wings destroyed and body damaged by an explosion, he has no desire to watch others find joy with their mates while he remains unworthy and alone on a ship filled with thousands. But then he finds Lana. Lana with her alluring smile, sparkling eyes, luscious body, and whose mere presence initiates the Knowing. 

 

Can he live long enough to claim her? Can she see past her father’s prejudice to love him? Both questions are pointless because there are still Preor who despise the joining of humans and dragons. They will stop at nothing to drive a wedge between the races. Including murder.

Taulan is book two in the Dragons of Preor series by Celia Kyle. I do love to read about dragons. They are my favorite type of creature to explore.

 

This was an enjoyable Sci-Fi Romance with a dragon shifter, Taulan and a down on her luck heroine, Lana.

 

I liked that Lana showed her mate Taulan that even though he doesn’t have wings he is still sexy and worthy of a mate. The changes that Lana goes through from being an abused women to one with confidences was nice to see. The romance is lovely and the world building is decent. It’s a light fast quick read.

 

The only thing that bothered me was the flow at the beginning. We end one chapter with Taulan going to fight and open the next with him and his mate in a cell then the next chapter them out. I felt like we need more. More depth, development, or something.

 

Though Taulan was not an in depth read, it still was enjoyable. 

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars
