Review: "How to Howl at the Moon" (Howl at the Moon, #1) by Eli Easton
How to Howl at the Moon - Eli Easton

"I just wanted the best for my own children. But you, Lance, you’ve always needed someone special. And… I knew it was right when I met Tim. He needs you too, so much."

Lance just looked at her helplessly, unable to say anything.

"Oh, my dear son." She squeezed his hands. "He makes you dance."

This was too cute and adorable for words. As a HUGE dog lover and owner, this one ticked all my boxes. I simply couldn't put this book down; I've read it in one sitting.

 

 

I admit that I am not the biggest shifter fan out there, but this shifter story was done extremely well. And by that I mean: no stupid insta-love during the first 5 seconds when the MCs laid eyes on each other for the very first time (Ugh!), and also no awkward macho alpha (malpha?)"Mine! Mine! Mine!" possessiveness (and wow, isn't that word a whip for the retina?). It was just about a guy and a shifter dog bonding.

 

I couldn't help but ADORE how Tim bonded with the beautiful black boarder collie Chance (when he had no idea that it was actually Lance in his shifter form) and how the sincere yet lonely Sheriff Lance Beaufort slowly but surely came out of his shell, only because of how our sweet and adorable Tim was treating him in his dog form as Chance. So yeah, I was definitely feeling the characters and their chemistry; and from the get-go, I was all like: "NOW KISS!".

 

 

Like I said, the romance between Tim and Lance was totally up my alley. Which isn't really a big shocker, since this is Eli Easton after all. Her writing was flawless as usual, and the story-telling was just the right balance between fluffy and bittersweet.

 

(Tim had a history of past physical abuse by his father, but that fact never dragged the story down nor did it overshadow the story, but it was there nonetheless.)

(spoiler show)

 

This author is just a natural and damn good and talented writer. Period.

 

 

So if you've read an Eli Easton book before, then you'll know what to expect. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for?

 

I can't wait to read the rest of this series and I'm especially excited that I'm getting Roman's story next.

 

 

Highly recommended!

 

 

~ 4.5 stars ~

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Shifter Woods: Howl (Esposito County Shifters #1) by Nicola Cameron
Shifter Woods: Howl - Nicola M. Cameron
Shifter Woods: Howl is the first novella in the Esposito County Shifters series, and after this beginning, I can't wait to read more! Laurie is a journalist and has found out that women are being snatched off the street and prostituted against their will. Along with Gavin (a photographer), she sets off to where she's been told they are. However, things don't go according to plan, and her and Gavin are separated. After being chased, Laurie falls into a creek, gets hypothermia, and is rescued by Mr TD&H (Tall, Dark & Handsome). It turns out that he is an Alpha Coyote, which makes Laurie's skin shiver for a whole new bunch of reasons.
 
This is a novella so expect the pacing to be fast. It is very smooth though, transitioning without any hitches from one scene to another. There were also no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. With a full story that is hot and steamy in places packed within the pages, this is sure to delight.  A brilliant start to the series, and highly recommended by me.

Murder Most Howl ★★★☆☆
Murder Most Howl - Krista Davis

Either these books are getting better, or I’m getting desensitized to them and less inclined to be nitpicky. Either way, I was able to enjoy this adorable little mystery full of adorable pets (DOGGIES!! KITTIES!!) and their indulgent owners, even though my brain was probably only 60% engaged with the story for the majority of the book. Although I couldn’t have figured out the murderer from the clues revealed along the way, it wasn’t too difficult since

there’s really only one non-pet friendly person left alive in the book.

(spoiler show)

Also, How could they have been so clueless about the thievery since

in the last book, it was the pets running unchecked everywhere behind the poltergeist-like moving/disappearing personal possessions?

(spoiler show)

Anyway, it was a cute story, and I enjoyed it very much.

 

 

 

Audio version, borrowed from my public library via Overdrive. Jeanie Kanaley’s performance has not improved at all over the first two books. Her pacing and tone of voice do not vary, regardless of whether she’s narrating the consumption of pancakes or the main character stumbling over a dead body.
