The Alpha and His Ace (The Alpha and His Ace #1) by Ana J. Phoenix Review
The Alpha and His Ace - Ana J. Phoenix

Young, handsome, and the alpha of his wolf pack, Brandon has never had trouble finding men to have sex with. Only one thing is missing--his mate. Brandon can’t find him, and the rest of his pack is growing concerned about his lack of partner. An alpha needs a strong partner.

Things seem to be looking up when he finally finds his fated companion in Aidan. One problem—Aidan’s asexual, and Brandon’s now confused. Who doesn’t want sex? Aidan, that’s who. And Brandon hasn’t got a clue how to make someone love him without it.

It's going to take some serious self-examination, acceptance, and some really good cake for Brandon to make his way into Aidan’s heart.

 

Review

 

A pretty bland wolf shifter romance made more interesting by the fated mate being asexual.

 

The world building needed much more detail but the characters and character driven conflict was intersting. Needed more time.

Claiming His Defiant Miss (Wallflowers t... Claiming His Defiant Miss (Wallflowers to Wives) - Bronwyn Scott

In trying to reduce the stash of Mills and Boon Historicals beside my desk I may have burnt out my patience for the tropes for the moment.  This one isn't bad, not too much cliche.  However the Hero's name... I'm sorry, it took me 3 minutes to establish that Casek was a Czech surname, very not Irish. Casey, Cassidy, are the two surnames close enough to work and it just kept breaking my suspension of disbelief. The story would have been probably 4 star if not for this jarring a-historic misnomer. 

 

And he could have been immigrant Czech, he was from poverty and there were a lot of immigrants in London from all sorts of places, but a great deal was made of his Irishness, plus his first name was Liam. (If you want weird stories about movement of nationalities try this one http://www.thejournal.ie/readme/ordic-rebels-%E2%80%93-the-swede-and-finn-who-fought-in-the-gpo-1916-1230007-Dec2013/ where a Finn and a Swede fought in Ireland's 1916 Rising!)  People moved around yes, but surnames are important.

 

I liked her, May Worth is determined to be herself no matter what. She's helping a friend to navigate the complex moment of being pregnant outside of wedlock and you have to admire her for that. She wants to be more than her strict societal demands make it for her.  I would like to see more stories with her ilk.

The Scot Beds His Wife (Victorian Rebels) - Kerrigan Byrne

She had her own terrible secrets; she could leave him his, safe and somehow comforted with the knowledge that both of their souls were stained with sins.
Maybe they were both beyond forgiveness.
Maybe...they deserved each other.

Seducing His True Love by Laura Jardine
Seducing His True Love - Laura Jardine

 

 

What started with passion turns into obsession in Laura Jardine's, Seducing His True Love. Blaine and Cassie push the envelope at every turn with their trigger happy, almost co - dependent relationship. There are moments that are disturbing. Situations that are enlightening and drama that is heartbreaking. Ms. Jardine makes sure there is never a dull moment and that she will get people talking about this firecracker romance. (3.5 stars)

It took me all of 2 minutes to find that most people with the surname Casek are in the Czech Republic, no, not Ireland.  Cassidy, Casey, Casement yes, Casek, nope. it's pulling me out of the story every single time. Nowadays it possibly appears, but not in the 1800's.
