Review: Bear to Love (Kodiak Den #3) by Amy Lamont
Bear to Love: Kodiak Den #3 (Alaskan Den Men Book 8) - Amy Lamont

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

Softhearted and rebellious bear shifter Macy Black can’t stand to see any creature, man or beast, in pain. So when her big brother’s two best friends return home from deployment with battle scars that go way beyond skin deep, she makes it her mission to help them heal. But when her desire to help turns to flat out desire, she starts to question everything she thought she knew about love.

 

Former Special Forces soldiers Nash Dixon and Gage Stone barely made it out of their last mission alive. The only way the two werebears are able to deal with the aftermath is by sticking close together. They both fear the bond they forged in battle may be the one thing that keeps them from finding their true mates. But when their best friend’s little sister forces her way between them, they might find that's exactly where she belongs.

 

Warning: This story contains possessive, alpha bear shifters and a big helping of heart melting romance. Just like Nash, Gage, and Macy, the Kodiak Den stories are better together, but each one can be read as a standalone.

Bear to Love was a quick, sexy, and emotional read. It can be read as a standalone.

 

Gage and Nash both bear shifters survived hell. They are toured with PTSD and a need to be near each other all the time.

 

Macy is an animal rescuer and bear shifter. She grew up with Gage and Nash and never expected her inner bear to come roaring out when she tries to help her brother’s best friends.

 

I really liked the slow burn, the issues they all have to go through and how it all worked out. The author had me crying at several scenes and fanning myself at others. Even with it being an insta-attraction and recognition of mates, the three of them first develop a relationship.

 

I had a delightful time reading this sexy shifter book. It was interesting and the characters are great. I will be checking out more in the series.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Fish and Ghosts by Rhys Ford - My Thoughts
Fish and Ghosts - Rhys Ford

I can always count on Rhys to give me a good read and this time was no different.  This is one of her earlier books and it shows some in the writing.  To me it's fascinating to watch an author's progress at improving their craft, but I have to admit that I'm thrilled that Rhys has gotten over the need to use epithets in her writing.  If I had read the words "the blond" one more time, I think I might have screamed!  *LOL*  We know... we KNOW that Travis has blond hair, for heaven's sake!  And you know, most readers are smart enough to discern the differences between the two 'he's' in the story.  So, being as that's a pet peeve of mine, it did kind of impede me enjoyment of the story.

For my money, I could have done with sexytimes scenes being of shorter length (I mean.. almost 2 chapters long at one point?  And long chapters?) and a bit more meat to the paranormal aspects of the story.  I found that I wanted to know more about the personalities and characters of Travis and Wolf other than that they set each other on fire.  :) 

It's an interesting world that Rhys has set up and I'm looking forward to reading more about it in the second book which I also have in the TBR.  I hope we get to learn more about Wolf's family and childhood and then more about Tristan's childhood as well.  Oh! And I really like the new covers on these books.  Far better than the generic men people that tend to populate a lot of the m/m book covers.

A Hidden Fire by Elizabeth Hunter
A Hidden Fire - Elizabeth Hunter

This was a good read far surpassed my expectations. I like how Hunter created her vampires. Not entirely unique but very well thought out and their history is nicely added to the story bit by bit. I really like how she kept it sexy but not smutty. The two main characters are good together, I do wish B was a tad bit older, but it still worked.

Release Day ARC Review: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Need (Nava Katz #3) by Deborah Wilde

ARC Review Copy

 

Less Hopelessly Devoted, more Worse Things I Could Do.

 

Nava is hot on the heels of a demonic serial killer and finally working with her brother. The assignment should be a dream come true, not a nightmarish power struggle made worse by her twin's refusal to believe there's corruption within the Brotherhood. Nava is determined to find proof of their dirty dealings, even as she risks irrefutably breaking her sibling bond.

 

Speaking of clocking annoying males upside the head... Nava is also totally over smoking hot rock star and fellow hunter Rohan Mitra. There is a veritable buffet of boy options out there, and this girl is now all-you-can-eat. So when her demon hunt brings her first love, Cole, back into her life, her revenge fantasies for closure-on all fronts-are a go. Except neither her old wounds nor her new ones are as healed as she believes.

 

Still, she's got work to do:

Brotherhood: unmask.

Demons: slaughter.

Guy problems: terminate with extreme prejudice.

 

Goodreads

Amazon

 

 

The Nava Katz series is one you have to read in order. Each installment builds a little more on the characters and world and takes us on a new adventure. It’s been a month between Sting and Need. Ari has his powers now thanks to Nava his sister, her relationship with Rohan is over, and she’s looking for the witches.

 

The Unlikeable Demon Hunter: Need is a crazy ride! It’s another whirl wind adventure with some hilarious moments. Their were a few surprises along the way and the ending was a happy one. Rohan comes back and we see that he’s cracked her armor. She loves him, but she knows/feels deep down he’s going to leave her. So where will that leave them? I’d say Nava has some trust issues. We see that her relationship with her brother is strained and Rohan is another complication, plus the Brotherhood being an all boys club and now a girls in it, so we have drama and conflict. 

 

I wish we got more on the Brotherhood front and the witches. What is the deal? Where is this going? I also wish Nava would grow up a little. She needs to Adult more aka communicate. Her attitude is still very prickly and it’s getting old. 

 

Even with the few issues I had. Need turned out to be a terrific addition to the series. I had a delightful time and look forward to seeing where things go. 

 

Rated: 3.5 Stars

Some boundaries are made to be crossed… 

A rare Vedjorn bear shifter, Eric Mikkelson lives on his own terms. So allying with wolf shifters, even gorgeous Julia Jacobs, bristles his loner instincts. But Eric must protect his infant son from the dangerous shifter cult stalking him. However, keeping JJ at arm's length proves nearly impossible. She gets under Eric's skin, exposing them to new risks as their staggering attraction defies Pack laws, and JJ's own dark secrets fester between them.  

When the safe haven of their shifter-friendly town is violated, lying low is no longer an option. Julia and Eric must embrace the power of their inner beasts, even if it means sacrificing their forbidden bond.

 

 

 

 

I've been a fan of Karen Whiddon for so long that every time I read her books it feels like I'm coming home. I was thrilled when I got to read a copy of Her Guardian Shifter - Whiddon wins with her shifter romance. The crazy from page one to the last keeps you going even when both you and JJ are thinking Oh, hell no.

Between the relationship drama, the community drama and the personal drama there's some serious issues for both JJ and Eric to work through. The worst of it is that there's a child involved. I'm impressed that despite being a parent Eric manages to juggle all his issues, his wants and the crap that comes with his package once he and JJ begin their involvement.

Turn off your marathon of Housewives whoever and read Her Guardian Shifter. Drama is afoot in this book. 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...
