Her Biker Bodyguards (MFM) by Marla Monroe (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

This is my first book by this author, and will not be my last. I really enjoyed this story. I loved the heroes Dillon, Gavin and felt the heroine,Briana, was a great. My only complaint is that the ending came too quickly, I needed more.

Panthers' Prey (MFM) by Leah Brooke (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$8.99
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Shape-shifter

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

Ok, I debated on even doing this review, because I have to state I love Leah Brooke, and have never read a book that I didn't love and didn't read over and over again, until this one. And because it was so different from her other books I just had to review this one. Some minor spoilers. I had to force myself to finish this one, and that has never happened reading her books. So it came as a surprise to find this one so lacking I didn't, like the characters, except maybe James and the secondary characters Leland and Joe (pack mates to heroes who's future book I am really interesting in reading), so I had a hard time connecting to the main characters, especially Bailey, I couldn't find one thing to like about her. I think the author was going for a tough on the outside soft on the inside scarred heroine, that fights back, but her bat swinging toughness was more annoying then enduring. She had a tough upbringing, growing up in foster care, only knowing her Grandma, and not used to love, but she did not come across as likable at all. I got so annoyed every time she threatened to get her bat when she was fighting back, to me that was not showing how tough she is, but just how stupid to go after men twich her size with a bat as a defense. And she was so stubborn; she did not believe the heroes are shifters, even after she saw them shift several times. Know the saying seeing is believing? Well this woman doesn't, she sees them shift time and time again and still doesn't believe. But is willing to be with them anyways, sexually that is, not as mates. Yes the sex scenes are hot I know the author does amazing sex scenes, but what she usually excels in is to bring love and the heart into the bedroom that allows us to connect to the characters and believe their HEA, without those things the sex is empty, and sex cannot carry a story alone, at least in my opinion . Maybe I just have high expectations for this author, but since I know what she can do, I do feel disappointed in this one. So although I will never re-read this one, and really regret spending the extremely high price of $8.99 for an e-book that was not satisfying, but I still continue to buy Leah Brooke's books, one bad book (and considering that she was having some major personal problems while she wrote this) out of her awesome bookshelf is not a bad percentage. I don't hold this against her in the least, and I am not giving up on this series because the hints we got for Leland and Joe's story has really grabbed my attention. So I hold high hope this one was just a fluke and she will deliver her usual excellence with the next one. Bottom Line: Not the best start to a series, and is very pricey for what you get especially for a new series, but the series has potential and I am still a big Leah Brooke fan, so looking forward to future books, especially her Desire Series.

Her Gentle Giant, Part 2: Remember to Dance (MF) by Heather Rainier (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$8.99
Categories: Contemporary, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I was so excited to finish the conclusion of this story line, and bought this book right away, but for me it fell a little short of my expectations. I loved the first book in the series, Devine Grace; I really enjoyed her second book and part one of this storyline Her Gentle Giant: No Regrets Part One. But this one, Her Gentle Giant: Remember to Dance Part Two was a bit of a disappointment. Things I loved: Seeing all the secondary characters, Rainer does a wonderful job getting me interested in the people in this town. Her secondary story lines make me interested in reading the stories for these characters. I also enjoyed seeing her characters from the first book. Things I wasn't too happy with: The story is long, and in my opinion didn't have to be cut into two parts. I feel this story line only warranted a one book telling. The sex scenes seem too repetitive and like another reviewer said I found myself skimming through them to get to the storyline. Rainer does an excellent job of showing us the love between her characters, and although I love having happy stories with happy endings, I do enjoy seeing the journey the characters take in order to get their happy ending. For me a story that has no conflict or obstacle to overcome makes the story less substantial. To me part two was just a very long and expensive epilogue. Bottom line: I still feel Rainer is a great author and due to her ability to bring her characters to life I am looking forward to her next installments in the Divine Creek Ranch Series. She has a few books coming up in this series and it appears the next one is also split into two parts. I'm willing to give this author another chance and spend the money to buy two books in order to get the full story. I just hope the next book both parts have enough storyline to make the book an enjoyable read.

Her Gentle Giant, Part 1: No Regrets (MF) by Heather Rainier (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$8.99
Categories: Contemporary, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

I liked this second addition to the Devine Creek Ranch Series. I loved the interaction been Rachael and Eli, and enjoyed watching their love story unfold. My only complaint is that this book is broken down into two parts. I do feel the book left off on a part where I feel the book was complete and did not leave the reader hanging too much. In fact it ended so well that I am curious to see what the author has in store for part two since part one was so complete for me. I'm not too thrilled to be paying full price for both parts, but if the second part is as good as the first, buying both parts would be worth it to me.

Divine Grace (MFMM) by Heather Rainier (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$9.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I enjoyed this one. I loved the interaction between the main characters and loved how Grace grows and develops with the help of her men. This was a long book, but I was so interested in the story the length didn't really register. This new author has won points with me and I look forward to more books from this series, as my interest has been piqued with the glimpses of secondary characters from this book.

Rachel's Seduction (MFM) by Jenny Penn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$9.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I loved it! I had read the shorter version in the Tasty Treats Anthology and enjoyed that one. This longer version is ten times better and although there are some scenes that were the same in the newer version as in the older one, the author changes the points of view in those scenes, making this a whole new reading experience. If you are a fan of Penn's Cattleman's Club series, this is a must read. For those who haven't read them, I highly recommend them, especailly this one!

Untamed Desire (MFM) by Lana Dare, Leah Brooke (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$8.99
Categories: Historical, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I love anything Lana Dare (Leah Brooke) and this one is not different. I enjoyed getting a look into the lives of the founding fathers of Desire, Ok. I enjoyed the secondary characters from this time and I look forward to the other stories of the fonding fathers. I only dread the time it'll take for those books to come out as Leah Brooke can't write them fast enough for me. I highly recommend this book, espeically if you're already hooked on the Desire Series.
