Following Fate (MM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc.)
$4.50
Categories: Alternative (M/M, Gay), Paranormal, Shape-shifter

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I love Hagen's books. Especially her shifter series. But I have noticed a HUGE lack of quality being put into them as of late. Words are missing, the wrong tense/word used in places, etc. She's so busy pushing out the stories that she isn't even taking the time to edit them or have a proofreader run through them. The story was good, her usual fair, but I was very thrown by the multitude of mistakes. BUY

Nothing but Trouble (MM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc.)
$4.50
Categories: Alternative (M/M, Gay), Paranormal, Shape-shifter, Vampires/Werewolves

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I love Hagen's stories. I've read pretty much almost all of them. Aside from the fact that this is by far my least favorite in a long time of what she's written but this one felt rushed... there were multiple spelling mistakes and even an entire sentence missing words. It's like she's started pushing to pump her stories out faster and faster and with the fact that there's no editing done by the publishing company whatsoever it's very noticeable that the mistakes are really beginning to slip through. Not only that, I had NO sense of Nash wanting to take things slow. At all. The whole premise is supposed to be that he wants to take things slow with Nigel because of needing to protect his heart, yet he's claiming Nigel literally the very same day he meets him and there's just... a lot lacking in this particular story. A lot of people may not agree with me and it's rare for me to be moved to actually do more than give a rating, but I had to on this one. I was disappointed. BUY

Prisoner of the Alpha (MM) by Marcy Jacks (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc.)
$4.99
Categories: Alternative (M/M, Gay), Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

I like the two I have read so far. This one and Carrying the Alpha's Baby. However, I do think the editing could be a lot better. It's very off putting to spend the amount of money you do on these ebooks only to find that the author or publisher has completely missed the fact that they are using the wrong person in certain places. Such as using "Calvin said," when Calvin isn't even in the scene, just because Calvin was mentioned. Otherwise, I like the overall story arc and plot. Wish there was a bit more build up in regards to the development between the emotions of the main characters though. Still a good read overall BUY
