Release Day Review! Wolf Moon (The McKenna Legacy #7) Patricia Rosemoor!
Wolf Moon - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

RT Book Review: 4.5 stars TOP PICK 


Aileen McKenna came to the remote town of Wolf Creek to study wolves in the wild and ran into Rhys Lindgren, an enigmatic man with dark secrets and a connection to the local wolf pack. Frightened townspeople were convinced a predatory wolf was on the loose after three men were found dead in the woods. Rhys didn’t believe it any more than Aileen, and she intended to prove the wolves’ innocence. But would Rhys take her into the snow-covered forest to do just that? She'd have to be alone with him and trust him to draw out a killer…

 

 

 

The seventh book in the McKenna Legacy series is one intriguing read. It is full of anticipation building suspense that keeps readers glued to the pages and on the edge of their seat. The story takes place at a steady pace that ensures that readers are never bored and one that along with the wonderfully intriguing setting keeps readers aware that danger could strike at any moment. Aileen and Rhys are strong, compelling characters that easily draw readers to them and ensures that they want to know everything about their story. Their romance is sweet but full of anticipation as well while they each try to unravel secrets while they are facing an unknown danger as well. The town itself like I said is intriguing which adds to the suspense and adds a kind of mystifying fell to the story.

 

Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for making her stories seem intense and holding her readers hostage with hair raising suspense that sends delightful tingles of anticipation down the spine. This is the first book I have read of the McKenna Legacy but since the stories could be read as standalone that was no problem and the story certainly aroused my curiosity about the other McKenna and their stories so I will be reading them soon.

My Partner and Me (Shifters and Partners #2) by Hollis Shiloh Review
My Partner the Wolf - Hollis Shiloh

Sean is happy with his mate, Tom. As far as he's concerned, life is golden. Except for when it isn't. Their work is dangerous. While Sean's recovering from his most recent injury, he hears a little girl in his head, calling for help. And his wolf side is acting up: too sensitive, too vulnerable. He needs Tom more than ever, especially when it means facing his family and old wounds. Even if things are never truly right for his wolf side, at least he has a mate who will never leave him…right?

 

Review

Not sure Tom and Sean needed a second book but this one is much better than the first.

They are mated and a great deal of the deals with settling into couple hood and a case as well as the world building.

 

You could happily start the series here though this book makes it seems like this series might be a para cop series and really the rest are more romances with cop elements. New couples, thank goodness, but Tom and Sean make very cool appearances.

Wolf Unleashed by Paige Tyler
Wolf Unleashed (SWAT) - Paige Tyler

Alex Trevino has his hands full. First, he has to convince the sexy vet that doesn't give him the time of day to go out with him. Then, when he finally accomplishes that and figures out she's his One, she gets it into her head, she's something else than a vet, trying to figure out who's running a dogfighting ring, and almost gets herself killed, forcing Alex to go half-wolf on her to keep her safe, she freaks and breaks it off, only to come back asking him to help her track her missing sister.

All this, while trying to find out who's behind the latest drug craze sweeping the city. Alex is just one man...With a little extra wolf thrown into the mix.


Once again, it was the suspense that saved the day. Suspense and the SWAT team with their closeness and zingers.
The suspense was intriguing and gritty with three separate investigations, keeping everyone fully occupied, only to merge (a little of an easy solution, if you ask me) into one single case. But it kept everybody on their toes, it kept me guessing, and it kept me glued to the pages.
The action scenes were intense, and the full-on wolf chase sequence was just the perfect cherry on the cake.

The cast of characters (namely the SWAT squad) was once more at their peak, both as emotional support for the hero, much needed heroes of the city, and the in-house entertainment to provide some much needed levity to the subject matter of the suspense arc.
I couldn't say the same for the heroine. She was annoying to begin with (with her hang-ups and emotional baggage), but instead of growing on me as the story progressed, she became even worse, until I couldn't stand her. I don't care that she had a 180 in the end, she's the worst heroine in this series so far and I'm glad "her" story is over.

Yet another great suspense and action story with wonderful (secondary) characters, but the romance (thanks to the heroine) left me cold.

I'm looking forward to what comes next, especially with the dangerous possibility of werewolf hunters converging on Dallas...And I'm wondering what he ME might know.

To Love a Wolf by Paige Tyler
To Love a Wolf (SWAT) - Paige Tyler

Little does Landry Cooper know the afternoon he walks into a bank to cash a check to cover a bet, that the awful day he's had, is about to turn into one of the best days of his life. It doesn't matter that he has to deal with a bank robbery, he's just met the most beautiful woman in the world. A woman he soon realizes she's The One for him...And the woman who will hurt him more than being blown up into a pink mist once she discovers his secret.


I was looking forward to Cooper's story from the first book in this series. There was something about the incredibly observant werewolf who everybody went to for advice and who could keep secrets that could cost him his job. But because he's just a wonderful character, of course his story couldn't have been all roses and rainbows, but instead turned out to be the darkest, most emotional one of the bunch (so far).

First, it was the star-crossed romance between him and Everly, the artist with four overprotective brothers and a magic-werewolf-mirror possessing father. The crux of the problem was telegraphed from the beginning when Everly told him how her mother died, but the big reveal still packed a punch. Especially once Everly's fears and memories kicked in. But I really couldn't empathize with the girl, not once she started spewing the m-word about the guy who saved her neck just a few days ago.
I know it created conflict, but the break-up was a tad too melodramatic for me, especially given everything that was going on around the two of them.
Still, it got solved rather quickly and it didn't really need one of those life-or-death moments (although we got that one as well).

And then there was the suspense, the main driving force, beside the weepy romance. I was right about the bomber, although I still wish I was wrong.
A bomber with his expertly made bombs was terrorizing Dallas and everybody pitched in, including Cooper, a former EOD tech who wolf-y instincts quickly started tingling. I might've seen the baddie coming from a mile away, but that final twist with the betrayal threw me (as it did Cooper). The suspense arc, especially given the personal connections, was dark and emotional, and quite painful to read toward the end, as I empathize with Cooper and what he was going through—and what he did in the end to save all those lives.

And then there were the characters. Cooper himself with his snarkiness and nicknames (Brothers Stupid brought a smile to my face) was enough to keep things lively, but the presence of the rest of the bunch didn't hurt, especially when the poor heartbroken wolfy needed a shoulder to cry on (or help getting out of being arrested).

Great suspense, an emotional romance, drama, angst, and a wonderful cast of characters. This is turning to be one of my favorite series.

My Partner the Wolf (Shifters and Partners #1) by Hollis Shiloh Review
My Partner the Wolf - Hollis Shiloh

om Langley and Sean Goods work together in a human-and-wolf shifter partnership, assisting the police, rushing in to solve crimes wherever their bosses send them. They're a great team, and they have fun together, too: joking and enjoying each other's company in a way that doesn't happen every day. 

Tom is also a married man. And his husband hates the wolf shifter with a passion. Tom tries to balance the sides of his life—one minute on a high-pressure chase with Sean, the next placating his husband Lowell. 

Then the unthinkable happens: his marriage ends. Heartbroken, he's not expecting to ever get over Lowell's betrayal or to be able to love again. 

Sean offers a solution: sex as friends. They have chemistry, and they trust each other. 

But can they change their partnership that much? And is Sean secretly harboring feelings for him—expecting more than just sex?

Sean is a loveable, funny, strong, and protective. He's the best buddy a guy could have. But Tom might not be able to keep from breaking his heart—if Sean is in love with him, and Tom can't love him back.

 

Review

 

I tend to have trouble with love stories when on partner (Tom) in this case so doesn't deserve the other (Sean).

 

Tom is passive, non self reflective, and then cruel in his fear and stupid.

So, yeah. If I hadn't read out of order and read books I liked in this series, I wouldn't have read on but I did snd there are some good books ahead.

 

I read the spin off by another writer which tells Tom's cheating husband's romance and it really good and emotionally complex. Someone's Favorite ('Someone' Book 1) by A. Russo
