Alternative Destiny (MMF) by Allyson Young (Published by: Evernight Publishing )
$3.99
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Shape-shifter

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Disappointing. It finishes on 86% with the remainder trying to promote her previous books. It also just finishes.... just like that.. almost in the middle of a plot. So weird and rather annoying to have a story just start to develop then finish within a couple of pages.

Uncharted Territory (MFMM) by Becca Van (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Romantic Suspense

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

This series used to be really great but I think it's run it span and now the stories are bland and boring as well as the author forgetting about key features of previous 'mates'. Also, gosh, I'm so over how much the guys "talk to themselves in their head" .. that's where all the drama happens, pretend, fake drama that just exists in their head. I think I'm done with this series, that last couple of books have been a disappointment.

Second Chance at Desire (MFMM) by Leah Brooke (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$6.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I was hoping for more angst from the guys but nope, after a couple of pages, they pretty much fell into bed with the new girl. Also, the timeline seemed to jump about - you're reading one sentence then the next sentence has jumped a week ahead in time. Weird, it didn't flow and I often had to go back & reread sections to understand what had happened.

Note that this book didn't actually have the main characters meet until it was about 50% into the book (probably more actually). The author spent way too much time laying down the plot & characters for the new series that forgot that we just actually wanted to read this book. Oh, and the violence was awful - so be careful, it could be triggering for you. Better yet, avoid this book, try another of her series instead.

I think they wrote the blurb for the book wrong - it's more about the girl surviving being kidnapped than anything else. So based on the blurb, it's rather disappointing.

A great read - lots of women to be saved or is it the rough bikers that need to be saved from themselves?!

A good read, not sure why she wasn't "abducted" earlier or why the men had to go on the mission themselves but otherwise a good read if you overlook those.

A good read but I found that the 'parents' were just a little bit too unrealistic to believe.

Slave Gold Dimensions: No Mercy (MFMM) by Becca Van (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Fantasy, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Science Fiction

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

A good read. The characters names were a little similar so I had to re-read the odd sentence but overall, I enjoyed the book. I didn't think your little rant on "freedom of speech" was necessary as it didn't fit into your storyline very well. I think if the author has a point to make, she should make it in social media and not in a book that I've purchased where it feels a bit like preaching.

Alpha Province: Ray of Sunshine (MFMM) by Becca Van (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I just couldn't 'get into' this book. The plot was good, that's why I bought it but sadly, the author has a set format for each book and jumped into it as soon as possible. Introduce girl, guys come to rescue. Guys overwhelm girl. Girl jumps into bed with them asap. Some weird drama at the end. That was it. Sigh.

Her Viking Dom (MF) by Mardi Maxwell (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )

Categories: BDSM, Contemporary

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

This was such a joke. Yes, they've been captured but hey, let's just treat it like a sex holiday and not really attempt to add drama or truly try to escape. Oh and hey, people got married unexpectedly whilst their friends were 'kidnapped & missing' yet still got married them went on a honeymoon - not very good friends then are they. And the end, with the 'wolves' ok ..totally weird and just another stupid twist for no reason.

a bit of a disappointing read as it was just more of the same ... the author was trying to suggest something else was happening but I must have yawned and missed it.

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Sigh, this book was all over the place, the storyline jumped around & I just couldn't connect with the characters. Fiona was hot & cold all the time, it was so confusing. Plot lines fell thru, for example .. Fiona didn't want the guys to tell her sister that she was pregnant & she'd tell her the next day. The next day, she sees her sister and she doesn't tell her, no mention of it but the sister starts saying that Fiona will need cream so she doesn't get pregnancy stretch marks -- what?? Hello, the author forgot to put in a part of the story. It was like this all the way thru, very disappointing.

Stormy Desire (MFMM) by Leah Brooke (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: BDSM, Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Romantic Suspense

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

There was a time when I used to look forward to the release of each new Desire book but that 'desire for Desire' has worn off over the last couple of books and this latest, well .. was quite a disappointment. The guy characters were cold and I didn't like them. The girl, Stormy, even though she was supposed to be some bad-ass girl was just a weakling and I couldn't be bothered with her. I didn't care the for the storyline or characters. Apparently the author must have become jaded over the last few years as there no longer is any romance left in Desire. Save your money, buy something else.

I've been reading Leah Brooke for years but this one is a disappointment .. not only does the 'island' come into in the last chapter (so why bother including it in the Rapture Island series?) but it just feels like the author finally read the series Fifty Shades of Grey and just adapted it to her style. I'll not be buying any more in this Rapture Island series, the last couple of books have been a disappointment.

This had the potential to be a brilliant book but it was just lacking depth .. for example: he walks in & says pack yourstuff you leaving & she's ok with it? If it had followed thru on the 'feelings' then it would have rated a 5star.

The book blurb doesn't state this but it's part of a series AND you must read them in order to be able to understand what has happened in the past to understand what the heck they are talking about in this book. Needless to say, I got lost (a lot) and was expecting more angst & drama. A bit disappointing overall.
