At five-foot-two and skinny to boot, Maximus Bonner has always been a little sensitive about his size. When he’s forced by his job to attend a team-building activity at Rolling Meadows Ranch and Resort, his worst fears are realized—outdoor activities. On top of that, he overhears the hottest cowboy at the place making fun of the little stringbean. His anger getting the best of him, Max lodges a complaint against the sexy man.

As a vampire, Rhyme Mythstone has been waiting for his beloved for over a century. Imagine his surprise when he comes in the form of a tiny slip of a redhead with a fiery temper. With one teasing comment, his chance at wooing the human goes up in flames. Max wants nothing to do with him. Can Rhyme figure out a way to prove that he loves his beloved’s size and can make him happy?

Review

This was pretty predictable and uninspired.

I have to admit to the fact that this series just might be done for me. It makes me sad because I love all the guys but the stories are just repetitive and I don’t feel happy when I’m done.

Out of the Cage: When a weekend fling gets a man into hot water, he discovers a knight in shining armor in the most unlikely of places.
Wendell Burgeon just wanted a hot night in town. Instead, he picks up a stalker…a dangerous one. When his make-up doesn’t hide the bruising, a friend at the office jumps to conclusions and tries to cheer him up. Cecil Rochette convinces his brother Teague to give Wendell a ride in his classic car…the one Wendell has been drooling over for years. To Wendell’s shock, Teague’s behavior belies his brawny jock image. He’s kind and sweet and seems interested in him, asking Wendell on a date when the car ride is over. He even comes to his rescue when his stalker shows up. Can Wendell’s knight in shining armor truly be as wonderful as he seems? When Wendell discovers that Teague has secrets of his own, he must make a decision. Who’s the more dangerous…his stalker or his knight?

Review

I thought this was sweet. I loved the GFY aspect and the really sweet MC – Wendell. Like all of Charlie’s books, the shifting was fun and I LOVED seeing Jared again!

Very enjoyable. Best as part of the series but fine on it’s own.

Beneath the Deep: After succumbing to a merman’s charms, a human must learn how to deal with the unexpected consequences.
Tran Poleman has been fighting his attraction to the merman Garan Vermidian for many months. He’s watched his best friends, Wayne and Easton, succumb to the mating pull and bond with mermen. They seem happy, and while Tran wants a little of that for himself, he doesn’t trust this bond the mermen call Adelfi Psychi—soul mates. He’d thought he’d found a guy that could make him happy once before. It had ended with Tran in the hospital, fearing for his life. How could he put his life, his heart, in the hands of another? Still, Garan is kind and charming and persistent. Tran’s resolve weakens, and when the merman offers to do what few men have ever done—to bottom for him—Tran gives in. After waking in the man’s arms, Tran runs. Wayne and Easton eventually track him down…and he learns his dalliance had unexpected consequences. Garan is pregnant. Can Tran put his past behind him? Or will he miss his chance to embrace a future full of love?

Review

This is a fun series by a very prolific paranormal writer! I admire the world building and the happy ending. There’s not a heck of a lot of story here – our guy suspects he’s meant to be bonded to a merman but he’s worried about what that would mean so he avoids it. We miss out on all the excitement and fun of finding out about mermen and the paranormal ☹ We do get to see our guy in the water and that’s always fun.

This wasn’t my favorite in the series but always enjoyable.
