Fighting For Wolves (Shifter Country Wolves Book 2)
Roxie Noir (Author)
4 Wolf Shifter Stars!
This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a standalone. Fighting For Wolves is a story about 2 wolves shifter / men and a new woman in town. It has love, romance, ménage, mystery, murder, and a HEA.
Grace Macauley (Grey) is new to town. She teaches kindergarten and gambles in an underground poker game. One night after leaving the poker game, Grey finds a dead body. She has a gambling problem. So finding a dead body and other reasons doesn't stop Grey from going back to or thinking about going back to the underground poker game. Grey is a good girl by day and participates in illegal activities at night.
Dane Sorenson is a detective for the Rustvale Police Department. He is a follow the rules kind of guy. Dane is now having to investigate a homicide. It is the first murder that the town has had in 30 years. Dane and Issac are both wolf shifters and mates. Issac Yates is a former champion wolf fighter. He is now an accountant, but he continues to think about fighting. Issac wants to go back into the ring one more time for the adrenaline and the money, so he says. He is too afraid to tell Dane about his decision for one last fight. Dane is still has a bad boy in him.
Grey meets Issac and Dane at different times, but feels an instant connection with both men. Issac and Dane feel that they have found their third mate. Now Dane just have to work on finding the murderer and clearing Grey's name.
My favorite scene is the one in the jailhouse / holding cell. I loved the chemistry between Grey, Dane, and Issac. I appreciated that the author made Grey character gutsy enough to go to Issac's fight. I like that Grey wanted to be there for him even though it could look bad for her.

Running With Wolves (Shifter Country Wolves Book 1)
Roxie Noir (Author)
4 1/2 Stars!
Running With Wolves is another great story by Roxie Noir. It is the first book in the Shifter Country Wolves series. Since this is the first book, the reader is given the back story or the development of the characters and their pasts. It features a triad of wolf shifters. This book has steamy menage scenes, action, suspense, and romance. It is definitely a must read.
Greta Waltz is the owner of Tooth & Claw Saloon and to the horror of her parents still single. Greta is the daughter of the pack alpha. She has fiery personality and is strong, independent woman. Greta is not easily intimidated or too scared to break up a bar fight, but does have a vulnerable side. She has been getting a weird vibe from Zeke, a shifter wolf, who is a regular at her bar. Greta constantly turns down his advances.
The "former" nerd Elliott Whiting has moved back to town with his mate, Shane. They have a run into Greta at her bar, after Shane gets into a bar fight. Greta is the one to break up it up. Elliott left town to attend college and become a professor. He has changed and longer looks like the nerdy boy that Greta went to school with. Shane and Elliott met and fell in love. The men want to find a third mate.Shane has a anger issue and has not been in a pack like Elliott and Greta have. Shane does enjoy cooking for Elliott and and being a stay at home mate.
When they run into Greta, Elliott and Shane are sure that she is meant to be their mate. Shane and Elliott try to date Greta, but things don't go smoothly for them. Someone does not want Greta to be with the men. She also is having family struggles as well and needs some wolf time.
All three of the characters have strengths and weakness, but together they make each better and stronger. Elliott and Greta have things that they have not told their families about (whether it is their feelings or occupation). I love the chemistry between Shane, Elliott and Greta. I loved the character, Greta. I can't wait to read the next book and find out about Dane, Zeke's brother.

Jagger: A Stepbrother Romance
Olivia Hawthorne (author)
Jagger is a wealthy rock star, who is used to women chasing after him. Jessa, JJ, is a straight A college student. Jagger and Jessa are step siblings. They have struggled to get along, since they were teenagers. Jagger and Jessa are tasked with supervising / chaperoning their little sister and her friends on a trip to Paris. Jessa is not happy about having to be around Jagger. Many memories are made, both good and bad, while they were in Paris. Once Jagger and Jessa get home, there are misunderstandings and people standing in the way of their happiness.
Jagger is a stepbrother romance told in dual POV (rotating each chapter). This book has a different storyline or plot than others out there, in my opinion. I love Jagger and how he fights for his relationship with Jessa. I appreciate that the author gave us a view into the whole relationship of Jagger and Jessa (past, present and future). I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves a rock star with a sweet, kind heart.

A Bear's Secret
Roxie Noir (author)
4 1/2 Stars!
Sloane Garcia was hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail. She wanted to prove to herself that she could do it, after losing her job and breaking up with her boyfriend. Sloane discovers a young man in the woods with a dart/needle in his neck. After yelling for help, a naked man comes to her aid.
Austin Leed is a bear shifter that works on a wolf ranch called Double Moon Ranch. Austin has a mate that he is unable to tell his family about or claim as his own in public. After responding to Sloane's call for help, Austin feels that she could be the one and wants his mate to meet her.
Sloane had plan to spend a few days at Double Moon Ranch. Sloane doesn't know much about shifters, but she is attracted / interested in Austin. While spending a nice day with Austin and his mate and letting her guard down, Sloane has the day ruined. Since she found the young man, the police are quick to accuse and arrest Sloane. This causes Austin and his mate to decide what is important. The men must decide what secrets need to be exposed to save / protect Sloane and themselves as mates.
There are many secrets, both good and bad, that come out in this story. The characters learn important (life) lessons through out. (Whether it is to believe in herself and your dreams, to help others in need, & it ok to love who you want to love, etc). This is a wonderful end to the series, but can be read as a stand alone. Great ménage shifter read!

A Bear's Journey (Shifter Country Bears Book 4)
Roxie Noir (Author)
4 1/2 Stars!
A Bear's Journey is the fourth book in the Shifter Country Bears series. It can be read as a stand alone. A Bear's Journey is the story of Olivia, who as introduced in the last book in the series. There are some twists and turns (or mystery). This is a fast paced, sizzling romance.
Olivia Lessing is a bear shifter, who has been feral for 10 years. She is still working on adjusting to life in her human form again. Olivia struggles everyday with being around other people and communicating with people. She has to fight to not shift (to her bear form) and run away. So, Olivia makes lists of all the things that she likes about being human, like peanut butter and hugs.
Jasper Sargent, the son of Senator Sargent, and his partner and mate Craig have been looking to find third. The men feel that they saw the woman that could complete their triad a few years ago, but have not be able to locate her. Jasper spots the mystery girl/bear, Olivia, behind the library reading. Craig get excited, when he find out that Olivia lives in Cascadia.
Jasper and Craig learn that people believe that Olivia is the one that has killed the wolves. This doesn't stop the men for asking Olivia out on a date. Jasper and Craig stand by Olivia. They protect and support her, until Olivia feel more confident in herself.
"Okay," she said. "I think I'm normal again."
"You'll never be normal," said Jasper. "It's what we love you for."
The story of Olivia, Jasper, and Craig is a wonderful story about love and finding the person or people that make you feel complete. In my humble opinion, this story about feeling comfortable in your own skin or being okay to be yourself. I highly recommend this story to anyone. I loved that Roxie had Olivia working in a librarian and loved to read. ; )

This is a fast-paced, suspense filled story. This story has strong characters, an exciting plot and a happily ever after. It will keep you on the edge of your seat the whole way through the book. This is an erotic romance with a tattoo, bad boy who loves to be an alpha male in and out of the bedroom.

Be forewarned this story does has some violence and step siblings in a relationship. There is nonstop action and a dominate male, who can be very bad and has a dirty mouth. There are some very hot sex scenes that you may need to fan yourself while you read. Overall, I can't say enough about this story.

A Bear's Mercy (Shifter Country Bears Book 3)
Roxie Noir (Author)
Charlotte Mullins is in Cascadia to capture a feral bear shifter. She has come looking for the feral bear that has been attacking and killing wolf shifters. Charlotte "Charlie" believes that the feral bear shifter is Kade Lessing. She is not afraid of shifter, because Charlie has been around them all her life. While in the woods with Kade in her sights and a gun in her hand, Charlie is attacked by wolves.
Kade Lessing and his mate, Daniel, live a fairly simple life. Kade has helped feral bear shifters in the past and continues to do it. Daniel is one shifter that was helped by Kade and then fell in love with him. They built a live together until they can find someone to complete their triad.
When Kade hears Charlie scream, he runs to her aid. After fighting off the wolves that attacked Charlie, Kade carries her home. Daniel and Kade with the help of his cousin Hunter work on nursing Charlie back to health. On day there is a knock at the door, a swifter wolf has come to ask Kade to trade Charlie for Olivia. When the man / shifter wolf leaves, Charlie wants to know what is going on and who is Olivia. Charlie tells the men her plan to save Olivia, stop who is killing the wolf swifters, and how she will call in the FBI.
Charlie is a feisty, strong and independent woman, who didn't like that she had to rely on the men for help when she was injured. Kade is a strong silent type, who cares for others and wants to help those in need. Daniel is a sweet and kind man. He had to try harder than Kade to be understood and also to keep the peace (so to speak).
This is the 3rd story in the series and can be read as a stand alone. The story of Kade, Daniel and Charlie revolves more around the characters and their relationship development then the other books, in my opinion. There is still the steamy sex scenes, but you get to know the characters, their stories, their feelings, etc. The build up to the good sex! ; ) I did like that Roxie Noir gave us a chance (again with this book) to see one of the character for a previous book. The introduction of Olivia makes me wonder what is to come next, if anything. I enjoyed this story and would recommend it others.

Russian Enforcer's Burning Obsession (Russian Enforcers Book 5)
Nic Saint (Author)
4 1/2 Stars!
Jackie Bouchard is on vacation with her best friend, Susan, in Cancun. They are enjoying 2 weeks of sunbathing and relaxation, or so they think. The women are being followed and targeted by a group of corrupt cops. Jackie meets a man that she feels is rude, but very gorgeous. When Susan is attacked, Jackie discovers the real reason that Erik is at the resort.

Erik is not much of a talker and could not help, but notice Jackie. He is caught staring at her on many occasions instead of working. When Bruno and Erik take care of the man that attacked Susan, Jackie learns what the men do for a living, but does keep their secret.
The romance and relationship between Jackie and Erik develops slowly, but the sex scenes are very hot and steamy. Jackie thinks that it is just a summer fling and that nothing will come of it. Jackie and Erik both develop feels for each other, but they are unsure how the other feels. The corrupt cops continue go after and attack Jackie. When she is kidnapped, Erik calls in help from his family. After Erik rescues Jackie, he knows that he wants Jackie is his life always.
I loved both characters, Jackie and Erik. I am glad that the author let us get a look into the family unit that is the Petrovs (the family dinner). This story had romance, action, hot sex scenes, danger, good guys who are bad guys, and bad guys who are good guys. I recommend this book, especially those who enjoyed any of the other Russian Enforcer books. This book is part of a series, but can be read as a stand alone.

Julius and Hudson are sexy men, who are in love with each other. Quinn is a smart young lady, who will fight for who she loves (and what she believes in).
This is the book 2, but it can be read as a stand alone story. We get to check back in on Ash, Cora and Hunter. One of my favorite scenes was the picnic. I did appreciate that there is a message (theme) within this story. I think that the author great job with it. This is a steamy, hot read with two sexy men. I love a good menage story, and Roxie Noir never disappoints.

David is shocked to learn that some of the naked photos are of the beautiful and sexy neighbor, Andrea Whitney. She is his mother's friend, and David used babysit for Andrea's children. David has had a crush on her, since he was fifteen years old. While David is enjoying Andrea's photos, his mother walks in on him. Very embarrassing.

Once at Club Secrets, David discovers a very different scene than he is used to, but he does find Andrea. David helps Andrea out, when she is drunk, harassed by a man, and in a scary situation.
This is book one of three in the series. Andrea is a woman who is exploring her sexual side. David makes his way through the clubs, in each book. I liked that David is a gentlemen, but has a naughty, dirty side. I loved his answer to what his medical specialty would be. Hilarious! This is a very steamy and fast read. A fan may be required while reading this story.

Layla Wilcox (Author)
On her way out for a girls' night, Claire Davenport is pasted by several bikers. One biker comes way too close to her and seems to checking her out. Later down the road, Claire see the biker again and notices the writing on his shirt. (I personally love it by the way.) While dancing she is approached by a sexy stranger. Claire has a sexual encounter with him without getting his name, but he asked her first name. I love when he calls her "little one". As he walks away, Claire notices the back of his shirt. Claire starts her new job soon as a receptionist, while she finishes her master degree.

I can't wait for the next book to see what is next book for Claire and Alex. I love how these two seem to feed off each other. I think that everyone could use an Alex in their life. Yum.

Caustic (Dark Romantic Suspense) (Dark Desires)
Morgan Black (Author)
Skye Kellan is called to her dying grandfather's bed with a final request. He wants her to find her twin sister, Leia, and bring her home. Leia has been missing, since she check out of the mental institution. Ellis Waters knew Leia, when they were both patients at Connecticut Psychiatric. Skye tracks him down to see if Ellis might know where Leia is. Together Skye and Ellis go looking for Leia. They hope to find her, before someone else more deadly does.
This story has a lot of suspense and mystery. Many of the characters have secrets and dark pasts that they want kept buried or don't often share. Many of the twists and turns I didn't see coming. Often I thought I knew what would happen next, but I was usually wrong. I loved both main characters, Skye and Ellis. I would like to know what happens in the future for them, if they are able to move on from their pasts and find happiness. I feel that they each deserve that. This book left me desperate for more (like; what happens next, is there a HEA, etc.) I wish that I could say more, but that would give away the story. I recommend that you read it, because you won't be disappointed.

Warrior (First To Fight Book 1)
Nicole Blanchard (Author)
Warrior is a story about love, second chances, struggles (both mental and physical), family, and so much more. This book takes the reader on a wild ride through every emotion. I found myself crying one moment and laughing the next. The reader will feel sadness, angry, fear, happiness, and love. This is a book unlike any other that I have read lately, in the best possible way.
After time spent in foster care, Olivia was adopted as a young girl into a loving family. Her older brother Jack is very protective of Olivia. One of Jack's best friends is Ben. As a teen, Olivia has a crush on Ben. They shared a kiss, before he went into the military. Ben felt that he would never be good enough for Olivia. He calls Olivia, his sweet spitfire. Ben loves her hair and when she gets fired up / feisty.
While home on leave, Ben see Olivia again. They share an incredible night together, before he deploys overseas. Both of them know that they can only have the one night. What they share is very special. When they part the next day, Ben tells Olivia that he knows that he can't ask her to wait for him, but he hopes that she will.
Ben comes home a changed man from his experiences, what he has seen, and his injuries. Olivia has changed also (death of family, her own struggles, being attacked, a child with health issues, etc). Olivia is a fighter and a survivor. When Ben comes back into Olivia's life, he wants to protect and keep her and her son safe. Olivia is not sure if she wants to open her heart to Ben again. She is afraid to be hurt again.
Ben and Olivia are both fiercely loyal and protective of their family. They both have vulnerabilities and fears/demons (like most people). Due to these fears / demons, their are (other twist and turns) events that happen, not for the good in the story. But Ben and Olivia learn to trust each other again for their family and find their happily ever after.
This story is told in the POV of both Ben and Olivia. It will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way through. I hope that I did this story justice with this review, because I LOVED it. I just hope that I expressed myself completely. I highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to the next book.

Seduced (At The Marine Masquerade Ball)
Jamie Klaire (Author)
Rose goes to the military masquerade ball. She looking for some fun (adventure). Rose knows what will happen if her father finds out what she is doing. She seems to feel braver with the mask on. Rose daydreams/fantasize about a man, that she sees there, with chocolate, brown eyes. Later Rose has a dance with the man. Soon Rose and her mystery man end up in a room behind the curtain while the ball keeps going. These two never speak to each other or remove their masks.
I did enjoy this story, but I wish it was longer. I'm greedy that way. I would have liked to know that the story continues for these two (with what they shared). Overall, I did like the mystery of it all. It is a steamy, sexy read.

Boned on Bluecreek: A Back Roads Novella
Moxie Darling (Author)
Boned on Bluecreek is the second book in the series. This book can be read as a stand alone. There is a follow up or insight on Clover and her men, Eustace and Jim.
Willow Spencer decides to go to West Virginia to visit her friend, Clover, after receives a letter from her. Clover has been living in the backwoods and asked Willow to come there. Willow will be working as a nanny for a widow with three children. She is a hippy / wild child with a free love attitude. Willow is instantly attracted to Teddy.
Teddy is still reeling from the death of his wife and not sure how to interact with Willow or his children. Teddy doesn't really talk and is very standoffish to Willow. She tries to get his attention without much success, until she looks to another for some sexual attention. Teddy doesn't like that very much, and things change between them after that.
Willow is a woman who just wants to be loved for who she is. Teddy is a man who is not sure how to move on with his life. These two help each other grow and change in positive ways. They both discover the other person's sensitive side and vulnerability. Teddy and Willow each had fears and doubts, but they accepted the other for who they were (flaws and all).
This story still has the extremely, steamy sexual scenes and expletive language like the previous book, but it is so much more. This is a more complete story, in my opinion. This book has romance with a happily ever after. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I loved Willow and Teddy together. I loved that you got to know and understand the characters more. I loved "The Band-Aids" and "A Well-Read Book" concept or analysis. I have many favorite quotes, too many to list. One of my favorite quotes is:
"You Kiss me like you're on fire." "Because you make me burn."

A Bear's Protection
Roxie Noir (Author)
Cora is a young woman, who is leaving her friends and family behind, to move across the country to get away from a stalker. She has decided to move to the shifter state of Cascadia. Cora feels that this move is a new start for her and hopes that she can feel safe again. She is a feisty woman with a vulnerable side.
Ash is a police officer, who takes his job seriously. Hunter is a veterinarian. Ash and Hunter have been friends since they were teenagers. They are bear shifters and are a mate pair. Ash and Hunter are looking for a woman to complete their triad. They truly love each other.
When Cora speeds into their lives, Ash and Hunter are both hooked / smitten. They know that she is the woman that they have been waiting for. Cora is not looking for love, but she feels an instant connection / reaction to both men as well. When things start to happen with the stalker, Cora doesn't tell the men everything. Ash and Hunter tell Cora that they can protect her. They feel very protective and a little possessive of Cora. I loved that Cora could count on the two men, when she needed them the most.
This is a very hot, steamy read. It is my first shifter story, but I loved it. The men are extremely sexy together and with Cora (hot sex scenes). I have read other stories by Roxie, and I am never disappointed. This story has romance, action, suspense and great characters.

Selena Kitt (Author)
**I received this arc book in exchange for an honest review.**
I am a huge fan of Selena Kitt's books and step books (in general), so I was not disappointed by this latest book. This story has a wide range of emotions and elements. There is of course forbidden love, but also danger, betrayal, manipulation, tragedy, love, and sex. The story of Conrad "Beast" and Tilly has many twists and and turns with secrets that come out along the way. Tilly fell hard for Beast as a teenager. He left to serve in Afghanistan. Tilly didn't think that she would see Beast ever again. When Tilly's mother is diagnosed with cancer and is dying, Beast is asked to come spend time with Tilly and her mother. While under the same roof, Tilly realizes that Beast has changed and that she still has feelings for him. The sexual chemistry and tension between these two are intense. The sex is hot and steamy. There is BDSM in this story, an alpha male and a club. I like that Selena Kitt lets you get to know or see into the these two characters. I felt that I could understand them, because we got to know their strengths, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, fears, dreams, etc. It made me root for them to have their happily ever after. I felt that I could understand them, because we got to know their strengths, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, fears, dreams, etc. It made me root for them to have their happily ever after. I feel like I went through every emotion with Beast and Tilly. I cried also. I do recommend this book.

Russian Enforcer's Royal Engagement
Nic Saint (Author)
5 steamy stars!!!
Russian Enforcer's Royal Engagement starts off with a bang, literally! Then add in a panic room filled with sexual tension and chemistry.
Diana Petrov is attending her brother's wedding in the kingdom of Montinia, when the palace is rocked by an explosion. Terrorists rush in and hold everyone hostage. Diana escape to a panic room with a sexy stranger that she had noticed earlier, not by her choice. Jack, aka Prince Jacques, tries to keep Diana in the room and safe. He is used to being in charge from his background in special forces. Diana is feisty and the two argue. She wants to have someone take care of her or protect her for a change. Because of who Diana's family is, men don't think that she needs to be taken care of. After they become intimate, Jack instantly feels protective and possessive of Diana. Jack decides that he won't let anyone hurt Diana. He makes Diana feel safe and feel other things that she hadn't felt in along time if ever. The terrorists force Diana with Jack to exit the panic room by threatening to shot her family. It is discovered that the terrorists were there looking for Diana. Jack tells the terrorists that they are engaged, so Diana and Jack will be able to stay together. Diana discovers through these men, who she really is, her real family tree and her family fortune. The terrorists take a lot from Diana ($ hint) She is lost and torn regarding Jack. Diana is in loving with a Prince Jack, but feels she is not good enough / not in his league. Jack convinces Diana to stay a little longer and more trouble follows.
It does turn out great and I hope that you read this book. I loved it!! I appreciated that Nic Saint let us see all sides / facets of the main characters (Diana, Jack). We get to see their hope and dreams, their fear, and struggles (I feel anyways). I highly recommend this book. I believe that these characters could be real.
