Out of the Cage: A simple errand to the city causes a wolf shifter to bump into his future…if he’s strong enough to coerce his mate into embracing it.
Gracen Robicheaux felt his petition to fight for the beta position of the Stone Ridge, Colorado wolf shifter pack was a sign from the gods. After over two hundred years, he could finally openly express his desire for a male mate. When Gracen runs into the human Lance Coracans, he changes his opinion. The gods are laughing at him. His worst fear has come to pass—kids. Lance has a very young daughter for whom he’s fighting for custody. Still, Gracen reminds himself that Lance is his mate. Embracing change will be worth it. However, between an injured babysitter, a sick daughter, and pack challenges, their missed and rescheduled dates are piling up. Can Gracen convince Lance that he really is serious? Or will finding out he’s a wolf shifter be the straw that sends Lance running?

Review:
Gracen has left his old pack and come looking for a place in the Stone Ridge pack. He longs for a pack that he does not have to hide his true self from and no more bigotry to deal with. As he waits for the chance to join the pack he begins putting down roots and to his surprise he finds his mate on a trip to buy supplies. Coincidence brigs these two men together but is that enough. What will Lance do when he finds out just what Gracen is hiding.
Gracen and Lance’s story is a sweet and sexy read. The two men are instantly drawn towards each other and begin a tentative relationship. I enjoyed watching Lance and Gracen find their way to a happy ever after. The attraction that the two feel begins to deepen as they spend more time together but when Lance learns what Gracen has been hiding from him is it enough to save the bond that they have begun to build? The romance between Gracen and Lance is sweet, and they are on fire in the bedroom.
With the help of friends and pack the two are able to work towards happiness. Not only do we get a look at the different sides of Gracen and what a good man he is, but we also get to see the pack circle around and Lance and Gracen when they need it most. The author has built a wonderful world with strong characters and I was quickly immersed in their story and engaged all the way to the end.

Meet the Beteferoce brothers: five dragon shifters, each with a strong elemental power. And each with a fierce desire to find his soul mate…

He said he was flying on a silver dragon. He called me “Markus-meine.” Who would know all that? Who? And how?

SWAT cop and dragon shifter Mark Beteferoce had—and lost—a soul mate. He’s finally at the point where he can get through the days without thinking about what used to be…until he tastes Quincy O’Brien’s doughnuts and takes him home to play.

Quincy O’Brien is a gifted baker, but at night he dreams of soaring through the sky on dragonback and being topped by the perfect Dom. Mark satisfies the kinky urges Quincy has only explored in his subconscious, pushing his limits and caring for him afterward.

From the start, their connection was more than sexual. It’s known; it’s familiar somehow. And it’s slowly driving Mark insane. What shouldn’t be possible most certainly is, and the bond between himself and Quincy runs deeper than either of them could ever have realized.

Review

Mark once had a soulmate, but he was tragically taken from him. Since than he has hidden all his feelings and wants away never thinking that he would ever find love again. When Mark takes a chance and decides to try to have some enjoyment in his life again he finds Quincy. The two seem to be made for each other but after a wonderful night Mark hears words from his past come from Quincy. Mark is unsure of what this could mean but soon he must decide if he is truly blessed again with a rebirth of his soulmate and take a chance on love again or let Quincy and his second chance slip from his grasp.
I loved watching Quincy and Mark’s story unfold. The two men make a great couple. Both men have strong personalities and together they shine. It was nice to see the attraction that they share turn into something much deeper. Mark has lived in pain for so long and with Quincy he is given a second chance, but it is up to him to take it. I enjoyed the relationship and the banter between the two men. Mark is a good man and it was nice to see the different facets of his personality come out with Quincy.
Their story is heavy on the sex, but it is what brings these two together from the start and it is what centers and completes this pair. They are at the beginning of their relationship and it is something that is more than just fun and satisfying. It is a deeper level of connection for the men.
It was also nice to see the scenes with the three brothers and their soulmates enjoying themselves together, the strong connections both physical and mental was easy to see and the camaraderie was nice. All were ready to welcome Quincy and make him feel like family.
This is a sexy fast paced story that grabbed me right from the start and did not let go until the very end. The author has built a wonderous world around these dragons and I am excited to see what comes next in their world.

The Supers
Can love survive the perils of MacGregor House?
The Supernatural Explorers are back and looking for their next big paranormal case. They might’ve found it in a plea from Payne, a mild-mannered librarian who has inherited the family mansion—MacGregor House. Since moving in a few months ago, Payne’s exhausted the list of ghost hunters and experts in his quest for help. The Supers are his last chance.
So why does normally good-natured cameraman Will take an instant dislike to Payne? For that matter, why has he felt irritable and angry since they arrived at the site? It soon becomes clear that the answers they seek will be found in the basement—where nobody has gone since Payne was a little boy. As the haunting grows deadlier, things get sweeter between Will and Payne, but all hell’s about to break loose when they breach the basement door.
Will they be ready?

 

Review

 

This is the second book about the supers: a group of young ghost hunters who happen to all be gay. This book gives readers Will and Payne’s story. Payne has called in the group to help him with the haunting of his family home. Yet when they arrive at his home something changes in the easy-going Will and he takes on a lot of hostility towards Payne causing the group to be kicked out with the loss of the job, but something is not ready to see them go just yet. The guys become trapped with Payne until things are settled. Who or what could be causing so much horror and chaos for Payne and can the team help him?

The haunting of Payne’s house is taking its toll on the man when the group realize the depth of his problem they work towards fixing the problem. It was nice to see the men work together to find an answer. When Will realizes the negativity caused by the house he decides to fight it and is genuinely sorry and sees that he is truly attracted to Payne. I liked that he tried to separate himself from the house and find a way to see just what his feelings were.

As the men work to figure out who the ghost is and how to appease it, an attraction grows between Payne and Will. The two find themselves in a fight for their lives. The ghost will stop at nothing to get what it wants, and the team is in its way. I enjoyed seeing the camaraderie between the group and it was nice to see the relationship begin to build between Payne and Will as the story goes on. The author mixes the romance nicely with the spook factor. The story is fast paced and grabbed my attention right from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

I am enjoying the adventures of the Supers. Each of the men in the group have their own strong personalities and shine differently. I am eager to see who will be next to find their happy ever after.

Time to Get Paranormal: Midnight In Berlin by JL Merrow

One bad decision can change your life forever.
It’s midnight in Berlin, and drifter Leon is hitchhiking home in the rain, covered in feathers after a wild festival in the city park. He can’t believe his luck when he’s picked up by a hot guy in a Porsche. That is, until he learns his driver is a creature from his worst nightmares—and plans to turn him into one too. He runs, but he can’t escape the werewolf’s bite.
Christoph made one mistake, but he’s paying for it plenty. He took Leon for a rogue werewolf on his way home from a hunt, and by the time he realizes the truth, it’s too late to do anything but make Leon a monster to save his life. That doesn’t save Christoph from the pack leader’s harsh punishment.
As Leon struggles to cope with his horrifying new reality—and his mixed feelings for the man who bit him—he’s desperate to discover not only what’s happened to Christoph, but the secrets their pack leader is hiding from them all.
Secrets the pack will kill to protect.

Review

Leon has been enjoying his time in Berlin but the latest guy that he had his eye on turns out to play for the other team. So, he decides to try his luck and hitch a ride home. Leon thinks that he has hit the jackpot when Christoph stops and gives him a ride, but things are not as they seem. Christopher is more than a man and thinks that Leon is the same. When he realizes his mistake, he tries to right it the only way he can think of. Hoping it will save Leon’s life and that somehow Leon will forgive him.

Leon and Christoph’s story is an interesting tale. The author intertwines romance and angst together as the men figure out just where their lives will go from here. The two make a nice couple and work well together. Each man has his own demons to work through but together they fight a common enemy. I did not feel a lot of depth with the characters and has a hard time immersing myself in their story. The story has some twists to it that kept me interested but the ending fell flat for me. I did enjoy the quiet times between Leon and Christoph as they continued on their journey. As each one learns about the other a bond begins to form between the men. They soon learn that life is what you make of it even if you have to fight for it.
