Action and romance
Mountain Wolf Protectors Complete Series: Books 1 - 4 - Emilia Hartley

The Mountain Wolf Protectors is a continuing story, divided between four books. Each book does resolve the immediate conflict, but there is a looming threat that continues through each book until the conclusion of the last book. Nova and Amara's story did hold my interest throughout the series and the story is full of action and a building tension with a rival pack. The action scenes are exciting and fast-paced with plenty of detail to draw the reader in. I did wonder why the big bad wasn't dealt with when the opportunity arose, rather than that part of this tale continuing for so long and Amara's stalker, while creepy, was pretty obvious.
Amara and Nova are completely devoted to each other and the author shows this quite well in their fierce determination to defend each other. However, the intimate scenes between them felt a bit rushed and almost gratuitous.
There are a few grammatical errors scattered throughout the books, but not so many as to be a big distraction. Overall, the story is an interesting read and kept me turning pages to see where Nova and Amara's romance would go.

This will certainly not be the last of J.D. Carabella's works I'll read!
Nocturnal Voyeur - The Complete Series: A Tale of Passion, Pulp and the Paranormal - JD Carabella

I am not sure why this would ever be broken into five shorter stories and sold seperately. This works so well as one larger work, I really can't imagine only being drip fed the story. If nothing else, it would have stopped the nice flow the story has, and made it more difficult for the reader to rejoin the characters on their journey.

Speaking of the characters, they were quite enjoyable, even though Mack does fall into a few of the trope pitfalls. I really enjoyed Fiona's character with all her stubborness and foibles. I would have liked a little more development for Fiona, and Mack needed more room to grow as well (no pun intended). Fiona really makes the story, but she's given so little time to develop in between all the action (both in the bedroom and out of it) that it did feel like we were racing after her in the story so didn't have time to learn what we needed about her.

The mix of Native American Indian mythology, magic and the paranormal regulars (were-animals/shifters), provided a delightful paranormal flavour to this romp through the 1930's timeline and gave the story a uniqueness that has been missing from some of the paranormal romance/erotica stories I've been reading. I'd have loved some more time to explore the history, mythology and explanations of the magic system, but we're only really given but a tiny glimpse of it.

The story left me with some unanswered questions; ones I hope can be answered with another story following Fiona and Mack. Or, perhaps some of the answers are explored in J.D's other series in the same world - Arrested by Passion. I'll have to check them out to see :)

While the writing wasn't perfect, the overall feel of this piece was quite polished and the story provided a quick, entertaining read for those who like a bit of bite with their erotic reading. Unfortunately, the insta-love aspect niggled a bit. It wasn't a total mess, but it wasn't flawless either. I think a little more character building and development would help with the feeling of it all being a bit rushed and make the insta-love seem less clunky and more 'destined lovers'.

The sexy scenes were provided in large quantities and quite varied in sexual preference, tastes and kinks. This was nicely done, though at times I did wonder if they were all really needed, or if it was a particular penchant of J.D. to enjoy writing smut, so she came up with a plot that allowed for a lot of the short snippets to be present and still fit nicely in with the story. That's not a complaint, merely an observation. 

In terms of hotness, not all of them floated my boat, but given the quantity and varied content, I'm sure almost all erotic readers will find a scene or fantasy to please their tastes within the covers of this book. 

One word of warning: this book does contain what some would call dub-con or non-con elements, along with some pretty brutal tentacle rape scenes, is littered with foul language and some intriguing, yet extremely depraved scenes. 

This will certainly not be the last of J.D. Carabella's works I'll read! 

A few things I noticed:

7% - a few erotica faux pas (everyone being sex Gods and Goddesses and rolling continuous orgasms) - admitedly pretty common in paranormal romance/erotic stories, but weirdly I still expected more from J.D.
9% - ...I know Theo was fond of you, (delete space)"
10% - ...and lie(lay/laid) awake for a few hours...
12% - Mack still stood still (awkward wording consider revising) 
32% - ...shortness of her shirt(skirt), which ended above the knees...
49% - they had been Cheekbones and Silence previously, not Smiler 
94% - Mack was large in ever(y) sense of the...

Dying to Live: The Shifter City Complete Series
Dying to Live: The Shifter City Complete... Dying to Live: The Shifter City Complete Series - Liam Kingsley [b:Burning Transgressions|35617639|Burning Transgressions (Shifter City Book 1)|Liam Kingsley|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1499443435s/35617639.jpg|57060960], Book 1 in the series focuses on Logan and the small pack he is part of. The leader of the pack is homophobic and he finds out Logan and another male pack member want to engage in sexual acts together it'll be trouble. Mariella is the only female in the pack and the leaders lover. Both Ade smart and know how to handle the pack leader. Unbeknownst to them is that once a male accepts the semen of another it causes them to undergo reproductive change. When Logan collapses after a night of passion, his one night stand/packmate puts him in bed and hopes he'll be better when daylight comes. Things get a little finicky in the light of day and the pack leader kicks an unconscious Logan out of the pack. Mariella takes a stand and also chooses to leave and stay with Logan to get them to people who maybe able to help.

Regis Thyme is a facility all wild shifters know to stay away from. Rumor has it that those who have gone there have never been seen again. More or less its practically prison and a death sentence.

Marielle takes an unconscious Logan (and the rest of the pack decided to leave) to Regis Thyme to get help for Logan and soon find out there's more to the rumor than they thought.


A good start to the series. I liked learning about these shifters, the difference between the outsider/wild shifters and those living in Regis Thyme, and the different phases of mutation. Logan was a hard character to get use to but I did and I liked that Hail, his love interest and a medic of Regis Thyme, managed to ground the wild and destructive Logan.

That being said the books did get a bit disjointed, making it somewhat confusing at times. Things were happening off page and readers didn't get to see the discussions and plans resulting in said scenarios making it confusing. A good example of this is the part were Logan loyalty was tested. Readers knew that Mariella was planning to figure out who was leaking info to George (their old pack leader) but not how and when. So when it happened it was kind of a "what the hell is happening?" and it was hard understanding the reasoning behind the action even though it was foreshadowed that Mariella had a plan to weed out the traitor. I still have questions in concerns to the traitors reasoning for leaking info and how he did it.

Dying to Live, Book 2 takes place a year after the first book and focuses on two new characters, Killian and Pan. Killian and Pan both have a crush on each other and it's been a long standing one. This series must be read in order so if you haven't read book 1 I recommend that you do. Neither realizes the other has feelings for the other and are too afraid to act on it. Killian is like the head teacher and organizer of the only school in Regis Thyme. Pan is pretty much everyone's favorite hair dresser.

During a fiasco at school Killian gets injured by one of his adolescent students. Instead of seeking aid for the horrible wound he decided to handle the the issue with the student and their parent. He only seeks help when his health takes a turn for the worse. But he's a little too late and ends up collapsing on Pan who ends up dragging him off to the hospital.

I'll just skip to the point. It turns out Killian has a new mutagen introduced into his system and it's causing his DNA to mutate again. He'll be a new type of wolf shifter entering the third phase (something no one in Regis Thyme has experienced as of yet). Although Killian has his own theories about it and how it correlates with the news coverage he's been keeping up on about the outside world. Pan also ends up getting the virus that pushes him into the third phase. Killian doesn't help either by accidentally causing him to go through the second phase consecutively.

Things go a bit to hell when Pan in pain manages to escape the facility and Killian gives chase to bring him back. The two discover a new enemy.


An intriguing development with the shifter mutation. Killian was a likable character but Pan was harder to like for me. He was quite childish and his rash behavior irritated me. I felt like the author created a faux pas when Hail was taken from Logan. Up to that point in the story I was more or less liking the story when Hail died that was pretty much the turning point. I just didn't want to read the book anymore. I mean it had been a year since Hail and Logan got together and Logan got pregnant. Hail was taken before the babies were born. I felt like the author hated Logan and Hail and didn't want Logan to have a HEA story. I'm going to say it now that the series would become a really tough read with the direction it took and I don't know if there was to be more I would even bother giving it a read.

Killian's dreams also didn't help in making the decision. I just thought it was strange and could be confusing if I hadn't been as attentive as I was when reading.

An ARC was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
