Claimed by the Mate, Vol. 3: A Bbw Shifter/Werewolf 2-In-1 Romance

Dangerous Passions by Kate Douglas ~ Evan finally gets his story and for him it is perfect. Of all the men in this series Evan was the quietest and hardest to get a feeling for but in this book he finally shows his true colors. The reader will be excited to see how he ultimately meets someone who gets his wolf all excited and how they work together to protect someone they care about.

Traker for me seemed the hardest to match and throughout this book you see his obstacles in finding someone that can meet all his alpha needs as well as satisfy his wolf. The author did a superb job of finding someone that adds lots of interest to this story and draws his interest.

Secondary characters are the people from the previous two books as well as some new villains to add lots of intrigue. Hopefully you’ve read the first two books so you can enjoy seeing how their lives evolved. But this can be read as a stand alone in my opinion.

Kudo’s to the author for the great ending to a sexy, entertaining series!

Bound to the Wolf by A. C. Arthur ~ Marena is very complex and the situation she falls into is beyond anything she wants to deal with or understands. Her desire to control all things is displayed in a manner that is not annoying or overbearing. The author does a brilliant job with the development of her character as well as Phelan’s.

Phelan enthralled me in the other books to this series and I have been patiently waiting for his story. What I liked about him was how messy his life was and how he is much more then the reader originally gives him credit for. I was intrigued by his back history and what drove him as well has his connection to the Gods.

The reader will love the ending and be quite satisfied. I hope you have read this series….it’s very good but if you haven’t you will still love this book about Phelan and Marena.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

Family dynamics is something that is very hard to portray in a manner that does not upset people but Author Lauren Dane does a superb job with Mac and his relationship to his immediate family and his pack. The reader will also be thrilled at how Mac deals with his feelings for Aimee in regards to his responsibilities and his desires. In the beginning I liked Mac but I wasn’t sure if he would be able to take over and be a believable pack leader, though I had no doubt that in the corporate world he would be great leader. What I liked about him is that he was real and the reader got to see his doubts and how he grew stronger as a leader through time.

Further more I love strong woman and Aimee comes across as a strong no nonsense woman which was very appealing to me. It was enjoyable watching her take a stand against Mac as well as for Mac. Her character was robust with lots of hidden aspects and the further you go into the story the more you will fall in love with her. Her relationship to Katie Faith is priceless and the reader gets glimpses of it throughout the story.

Secondary characters are fully developed with Aimee’s best friend Katie Faith being hysterical in all her antics. I can only image what Katie Faith and Jace’s story was like in Moonstruck (Diablo Lake #1) of the series and plan to go back and read it. Jace is the other pack leader who is at odds with Mac’s pack so watching how these two deal with each other adds another layer of interest.

As always there are bad guys or should we say werewolves that added spice to this story to keep the reader is suspense as the author weaves us through the story to the dramatic ending.

I give this 4 STARS for how the author dealt with family dynamics.

Must Love Lions

Outstanding job on this first book by Indie author Alma Black. This is a light read and I know the readers will enjoy it. She incorporates humor, minor violence, prejudice, hate, and love. The dating concept which is always an intriguing event for anyone who is single added to the story.

Her characters are written with flair and drew me in to see how they would solve the dating situation between humans and shifters. Max has just the right amount of Alpha to make your heart flutter and his pursuit of Alexis is fun and enduring. Alexis’s negativity about his dating app is the perfect foil to Max’s relentless pursuit of her.

I give it 5 STARS for being so well done for a new author. Will you give her a try? I know I am looking forward to the next book in this series.
