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.
4 1/2 Steamy Stars!

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!

I loved how the author had the characters get past their insecurities and support each other. This is a great read, and I loved it. I can't wait for the next one.
