The Given & The Taken (Tooth & Claw #1) by L.A. Witt
The Given & The Taken - L.A. Witt

I don't get Levi/Darius, sorry. There was nothing between them bar pure hate for the longest time, and all of the sudden there is an orgy and a half, butterfly kisses and ribbons and kittens and even the L word. Nope. Not working for me.

I also don't get why Levi had to lie about Ian not showing up for the reunion, along with the stupid decision on Ian's behalf not to pick up a phone call to clear up the situation. You can listen, you don't have to meet face to face, that's the benefit of a phone call, right? So, one silly thing after another after yet another... That's the way of the book. Which leaves me with a shrug and 1.75 stars.

Писательское мастерство автора, да в мирных бы целях.....

The e-book was 5 stars but for me the audio book was 5 stars and then some...
The Master Will Appear - L.A. Witt,Michael Ferraiuolo

I loved this book the first time I read it but after listening to the audio this one of those rare occasions where I've been left dumbfounded by how much I feel that I missed the first time around. I just feel like I picked up on some much more of what was between Mikhail and Ryan and the dynamics of Ryan's family and how it affected him. I am going to be rolling this one around in my brain for a while to come and I'm fairly positive that's also going to include listening to the audio book one more time. 

Mostly I'm blaming this on Michael Ferraiuolo and the incredible job he did of narrating this story. I've been a fan of this narrator since listening to Santino Hassell's 'Five Boroughs' series but with this audio book this narrator has gone from someone who's audio books I really enjoy to 'must have in my m/m audiobook library'. 

As for the actual story after taking the time time to reread my original review for the e-book I'm not going to re-invent the wheel or re-write this review so here a link if you're curious...

Original Review: The Master Will Appear

 

I'm definitely recommending this one.

Going Overboard (Anchor Point) - L a Witt

This is book #5, in the Anchor Point series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in the order intended.

 

Dalton & Chris have been best friends for some time.  Enjoying the same things, working the same job, even at the same location, makes it easy for their friendship to grow.  When tragedy strikes and makes them realize their feelings - can they make the most of it?

 

Chris is not sure how to react when he almost loses Dalton.  He has become more than a friend now.  In order to go forward someone would have to transfer out, they would both have to get promoted, etc.  

 

This story was a sweet surprise.  I enjoyed learning more about their jobs.  I also loved the characters loyalty to both the jobs, and to each other.  I found myself not wanting to put this book down, like many in this great series.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Well this creates a problem...
Reckless Behavior - L.A. Witt,Cari Meister

you see I do try really, really hard to be honest in my reviews and I'm sure I'm hardly the first person to face this dilemma but I gave this one 5 stars and that's where my problem arises...I need more than 5 stars...seriously more than 5 on this one.

 

I loved the hell out of this story. I was addicted to this series from the word go and with each book my love for these books for the stories and characters contained within has only continued to grow. While there's not a lot of sexy times in this series what there is...is one hella' good relationship. It's there, it's strong and from that first book where we got to watch as Darren struggled to find a way to make his partnership with Andreas work to this one where we watch as Andreas and Darren work together as partners both on a personal and professional level to find Andreas's kids and bring them home to Darren's own heartbreaking news the strength of the relationship between these two men is so evident. 

 

I love the relationship that's built between these two. For all that might not be here in terms of the physical relationship between these two the emotional connection, which to me is so much harder for an author to bring out has been made and is so wonderfully real and present between these two. I love that no matter what is going on for one of them they don't lose track of what's going on with their partner and the toll that events are taking on each other emotionally. 

 

There's a lot going on in this one but it's well done and I didn't have a problem following events or feel like it was a jumble of chaos as could have easily been the case. A lot of this story focuses on every parent's worst nightmare. Andreas and Darren are doing dinner with Andreas's kids. Andreas is trying really hard to fix his relationship with his kids and come clean with them about things that he's kept from them as well as introduce them to the other important person in his life...Darren. Things start out a little awkward but for the most part the dinner's going well or at least it was until the evening comes to an end and suddenly two of the kids are missing and as everyone's trying to find the girls, Erin and Emily there's a threat to Andreas's sons, Ben and Casey. When the dust settles only Ben's still there...Erin, Emily and Casey have all been abducted. 

 

As Andreas and Darren work to find the missing children, they're surprised to realize that for whatever's happened in the past their brothers in blue are there for them and they're not alone. But even with the addition of all this unexpected support for Andreas it's Darren's presence that means the most. But when Darren gets hit by a personal tragedy of his own...choices have to be made. Choices that neither man finds easy, but Darren is determined to be there for Andreas, he knows that he can't control or change what's happened in his life and it'll all be there for him to deal with once Andreas's kids are safely back where they belong.

 

Having children of my own it took zero effort for me to understand how Andreas and his ex's felt. Just the thought of one of my kids being taken is terrifying and makes my blood run cold...so yes, there were tears and more than a tissue or two was sacrificed to the reading of this book but more than this what twisted my heart and still reduces me to a sad, little sobbing puddle of tears was the tragedy that blindsided Darren because truthfully it blindsided me as well because I so did not see that one coming and there went a whole lot more from the tissue box and then there was the ending and there went a few more tissues...hey, even happy tears require tissues.

 

There's so much more that I could say about this story because it's not a simple story and a lot of what happens in this book is connected to events of the previous two stories and truthfully I think the best thing that I could say here is if  you haven't read those first two books go back and read them before you tackle this one because it'll all make a lot more sense and be a more enjoyable story if you have all of that background filled in.

 

I know there's at least one more story coming in this series and it's going to be released real soon...like in less than a week soon...it's called Romantic Behavior and it's hopefully going to give Andreas and Darren the happily ever after that they so very much deserve. I'm looking forward to the next installment in this series and if it's anywhere near as good as this one I'm going to need a lot more than 5 stars to show how much I enjoyed it.

Son of Money - Brandon Witt

Randall Morgan grew up in an extremely wealthy family with the expectation he follow whatever path his father made out for him.

Randall’s parents rank very high on the list of disgusting people. There is a lot of potential for a rant here, but I’ll just leave one quote from the father to Morgan’s brother, Dustin. It pretty much says it all about ‘Daddy dearest’:

 

Dad didn’t look at her. “Dustin, I thought I’ve made it perfectly clear that you need to keep your wife under control.”

 

So, yeah. Randall did not want to stick around his controlling familiy. He has actually had the audacity to chose his own path in life at the cost of having any access to the family fortune. He has as little contact with his family as possible. And he gets by just fine; his photography career is about to take off, he gets to spend time with his niece – the only reason he is sticking around and hasn’t moved far away from his family, and he meets Noah again. The boy he shared a first kiss with so long ago.

Randall and Noah reconnect and things are great until secrets come out and rumors start flying. In a big way – the Morgan name guarantees plenty of press coverage. It’s an emotional rollercoaster ride and Randall struggles to find his footing and not mess things up with Noah in the process.

 

The book has my favorite kind of ending where the good guys win and the bad guys are left with nothing.
