Bear's Pup (MM) by Bellann Summer (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$3.99
Categories: Contemporary, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

This first book is better than book 2, for sure. The characters are likeable, but the stories need to be longer and more fleshed out. The insta-love is a bit too much given that this series is not paranormal and there's no mate factor. But at least the first book keeps to the rescue and danger premise pretty nicely. I'll probably give this series one more try before I call it quits, because I do enjoy the big alpha hero pairing with the smaller, more sweet and delicate partner.

Jack's Sweets (MM) by Bellann Summer (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.5
Categories: Contemporary, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

The blurb is very misleading, and after the initial rescue, the school shooting or any sort of rescue at all has no part in the story. Instead... **SPOILER** The plot dissolves into a "whoops, the old girlfriend is pregant" storyline. I detest this trope in a m/m story, and if I had known the plot would become about the alpha hero becoming a dad and his new, sweet boyfriend being just thrilled to raise the babies (right...eyeroll), I never would have purchased this book. This series is supposed to be about rescue and danger, so that's what I expected. The stories also need more fleshing out, and to be longer.

Elliot (MM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Contemporary, Western/Cowboys, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I love cowboy stories, so I was excited about this series in the beginning. But after this 3rd book, having read the same events over and over because each Wylde brother's book takes place within the same time period, I'm done. That's a shame, because I really wanted to read about Cody.

Protective Custody (MM) by Stormy Glenn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Contemporary, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I agree with the previous reviewer. I usually love Stormy's books, but this story wasn't one of them. The plot has too many holes to list, with the lawmen doing many irrational things. I wanted to throw my e-reader at the wall with this one.

To Protect and Punish (MM) by Gabrielle Evans (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Not quite as exciting, dark, and edgy in my opinion as the previous two books, but still a good read with likeable heroes. I'm waiting impatiently for the next one!

Rise to Love (MM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I enjoy Lynn Hagen's books and she's typically an auto-buy for me. But I did not connect with Rick, and I found Dorian to be a very unpleasant character in the beginning. He did come around eventually, however, which added a star for me. This world is interesting that Ms. Hagen has created for the series. Overall, I may try the next book.

Craving a Lion (MM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Shape-shifter, Alternative (M/M, Gay), Futuristic

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

This is the best Lynn Hagen book to date! This one has it all--two hot heroes, hate that becomes undying love, danger, heartbreak, and romance. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

One of Ms. Glenn's best Tri Omega books in quite a while. Plenty of angst and danger, even if the situations are too easily solved sometimes. I enjoyed the story and look forward to more.

A Very Marius Christmas (MM) by Joyee Flynn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

This was a good entry in the series, and it was a great idea to show what happens when couples start to take each other for granted. Some very moving scenes. I would rather the story have focused on no more than 2 couples that were having trouble instead of all of them, with the solutions not quite so neat and easy. Would love to have seen things get much worse for the couples before they got better. But I enjoyed the book and look forward the next books in the series.

Bailey Morgan (MM) by Anitra Lynn McLeod (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay), Futuristic

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

This was the start of a series with an interesting premise that unfortunately fails in execution. Baily and his mate get very little story at all, with far too much time spent on them having sex for the first time--their first encounter getting to know each other sexually takes up almost the first 50% of the book. And with McBride standing over them, instructing them as their master and sort of father figure, it was just weird. I thought with the new virus outbreak a story would finally develop, but that was obviously seeded for future books in the series and absolutely NOTHING happened in this book. Nada. This wasn't a book, it was an intro, period. Very disappointing. I'm not sure if I'll give the next book a chance to see if this changes and there's actual story in the future.

I enjoyed this one, even though the "world becomes aware of shifters and we must speak to the President to avoid distaster" part toward the end was even more over the top than usual. Nice set-up for the mates' children to grow up and get their stories, which I'll be sure to read. :)

Bald Eagle (MMM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

After waiting for this one, I felt it was just okay. Eagle's painful healing after what he'd gone through at Jackson's hands was the most emotional part. But this trio of mates just didn't come together as very memorable for me, nor did the rest of the plot. Still, I look forward to her next books.

Collin's Awakening (MM) by Stormy Glenn, Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Paranormal, Shape-shifter, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Different concept, and very enjoyable characters with great emotion--especially when Rio believes he's lost Collin forever. The ending was a bit unsatisfying and several questions were left unanswered, including the villain's motivation, so I couldn't give it 5 stars. Perhaps the next installment will clear up some of the fog and round out the bad guys for the reader.

I enjoyed the story and characters, even if the ending was a bit anti-climactic. The idea of a penguin in a den of wolves was cute.

Air Demon (MM) by Stormy Glenn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Contemporary, Fantasy, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Started out pretty exciting and promising, but petered out toward the end with the secret passageway stuff, and no real conclusion to this development with their enemies. More and more of Ms. Glenn's series books are starting to read like "bridge" books with an ongoing plot instead of including one conflict for the heroes that is struggled over and then solved in a decisive way in that book. I enjoyed the heroes, but more development would've made the story excellent. I'll try the next one.

Danny in the Dark (MM) by Ellen Ginsberg (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I read tons of m/m romances off all types, and I have to say, this is one of the weirdest stories I've read in a while. The Prologue is confusing, and there seems to be no reason down the line for it to have been included. The story between the two heroes is rushed (insta-luv that is not really developed) and full of holes (*mild spoilers ahead*)-- what happened to Danny's father's body? Why the heck did they just let Danny's murdering mother go free?! Why was there no real closure between Danny and his twin? And the ending was abrupt, leaving too many loose ends. Neither the plot nor the author's world were developed, and I just didn't love the planeswalking thing. Three stars is generous, only because this is a new author to me and I *might* (but no guarantees) try the next book before I give up.

Honor Bound (MM) by Stormy Glenn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Fantasy, Historical, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Stormy Glenn is an auto-buy for me, but this one left me wanting more. I liked the characters, who were endearing as usual. However, I didn't like that this book simply felt like a building block to the next stories, with lots of buildup to danger that never happened, and a child that still hasn't been born. Then there's the grandfather/god telling Ein (and the reader) right up front not to worry, that everything will turn out fine in the end (after much danger and struggle that didn't really happen in this book), which sort of takes the anticipation away. I'll probably read the next one just to see if the plot finally gets going and we get the peril and action that seems to be coming--and I'll hope that we have a fully developed, stand-alone story to savor in the series, which is what I'm used to from Ms. Glenn.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

I enjoyed this installment of the series very much! I couldn't give 5 stars because we don't learn the results of Gabby's test (I hate when an author holds information about a couple for the next story in the series, when it's not going to be that couple's story anymore!). Also, the reveal of Prince Christian's connection to Gabby and Gabby's reaction to him could've been handled better and I would've liked to see them get to know one another. Overall, though, I loved the story and can't wait for the next one!

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

This one was much better than Nero's story, and has plenty of plot going on! I loved Heaven and Murdock. The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because of the way it ended, not knowing what happened with Heaven's current situation. (Do not want to use a spoiler here) We have to wait until the next story to see what happens, but by then it won't be their story anymore. Unanswered questions left at the end of a book regarding the star couple frustrate me. But other than that, it was satisfying. I look forward to Nicholas's story.

Nutter Nero (MM) by Lynn Hagen (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )

Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I've loved this series, until this book. There was no plot in sight, and Gunnar calling Nero his "nutter" threw me screaming out of the story every time. That's an awful name to call someone with serious problems, and didn't come off as the endearment it was intended to be. Nero's problems, and the abuse behind some of them, were never really dealt with. Speaking of the abuse, how did Nero have fresh red welts on his back when his father had been dead for some time? This story never came together, and I can only hope the next ones get back to being as good as the start of the series.
