Operation Tango (MM) by Stormy Glenn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )

Categories: Contemporary, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

This was so much BETTER than I had even imagined. Trust Stormy to throw out the rulebook and bring something completely unexpected to the table. So unexpected, in fact, that I can’t say a word because it’s a HUGE spoiler. I loved Ian and his geek squad. Hank and his crew are way hot. Stormy, ya better make this a series. PLEASE!!

I'm so happy that this second installment in the ‘Wolves of Emerald Valley’ series focuses on Atlas. He is one of the five alpha wolves who left their hometown years ago - leaving it to be taken over by a corrupt pack - and Atlas also left his mate, his omega, Larry. They continued to meet in secret twice a year, even though Larry had chosen to be with an enforcer for the Lunar Fire pack that had overtaken Emerald Valley, but it has been a year since Larry was murdered, and Crash, Atlas, Colton, Dante, and Lee returned to their hometown. Since Crash and the guys helped Blake, alpha of the Lunar Fire pack, consolidate his power, and defeat Luka, his former beta, Blake and a vampire coven keep the peace in Emerald Valley. When Joe finds Royce cheating on him, he decides it's finally time for him to leave the pack and strike out on his own. Joe has been told by a pack doctor that he is defective and will never carry strong alpha pups. *eye roll* Joe is incredibly lucky to have Atlas come to his rescue when Joe’s car breaks down one mile before the town limits. “The last time Atlas handed his heart on a platter to a man he thought he loved, Larry spat on it. Comparing Joe to Larry was pointless though. Joe was so open, and eager to give, whereas with Larry, Atlas had to rely on scraps.” It was wonderful to see Joe really open up and show his true personality without being in his brother’s shadow. Joe took to the job of organizing Atlas’s office like a champ and the two men slowly got to know one another. Joe was afraid of giving his heart to the big alpha because what if it was rejected? Atlas wasn't used to an omega like Joe and he was afraid it was all too good to be true. Oh, what a delightful addition to the series! I loved watching Joe come into his own and find his true mate, and I loved seeing Atlas finally find his omega who is honest and loving with him! They both needed each other and I adored being on this journey with them!

Oh wow. I've really been interested in reading Lee and Magnus’s story ever since Magnus was introduced as the head of the vampire coven that Lee called upon when Blake needed help consolidating his power within his pack. There were a lot of sexual undertones between Lee and Magnus, so I was pretty sure there was more to their story than I had heard. Interspecies relationships are uncommon in this world but they do occur, and the way Lee’s wolf has always responded to Magnus can only mean one thing. Mate. But Lee refuses to believe it, or even contemplate it. Magnus has known Lee is his mate ever since he met him five years ago when they made their pact. Their pact that they would track down Magnus’s sadistic older brother, Eduardo, kill him, and liberate from being Eduardo’s blood slave a young man Lee considers his brother. It has taken five years to finally locate Eduardo and it is time for Magnus to take what he wants from Lee. I liked watching Lee and Magnus figure out a way to have a relationship when they're different in so many ways. It wasn't easy, no doubt about it. Lee has an inherent distrust of vampires and certainly can't imagine one feeding from him. Whereas for Magnus, a lover who is willing to let him feed from them, shows an incredible amount of trust. This is just one of the issues they had to work on. I struggled, again, with quite a few editing errors and I continue to hope that those will be addressed in future novellas. However, overall, I did enjoy this addition to the series.

"The six of them, Lee, Dante, Colton, Atlas, Larry, and he had made a pact a decade ago to leave bumfuck heaven behind and move on to better things. Larry stayed, but Crash never did really move on." I love nothing more than a brand-new alpha/omega shifter series. The blurb for 'Crash and Burn' really appealed to me and I wanted to know why these guys made this pact, why their friendship ended up being nothing more than some infrequent emails in the ten years since they left, and especially why Larry, their omega, stayed, and who murdered him. I figured I had at least five books to look forward to and that always makes me happy. Crash hit a lot of my buttons right from the start. He's big, snarly, is an illegal MMA cage fighter, and has bad boy written all over him. Except, he's still not over Mark, the omega who broke his heart and sent him running away from Emerald Valley years before. Crash is intense, brooding, loves too much, too deeply, and takes everything too seriously. I was prepared to not like Mark, but that didn't last long. Mark said what he said all those years ago, knowing Crash would run, because Mark felt betrayed. When Crash presented him with wedding rings, Mark was ecstatic, until he realized that Crash had no intention of staying in their hometown and helping to care for it. After the five left, the Lunar Fire pack moved in and claimed the territory, and nothing has been the same since. "He swore to himself that if Crash ever decided to show his face back in town, he had a whole lot of things to say to the Alpha who’d left him and the entire town to the mercy of outsiders." The Lunar Fire pack takes what they want, are vicious with no morals, and they pass their omegas around to be bred and to take care of them. Mark has seen the empty eyes of those omegas, and Larry had, too. Larry tried to run away once, and was black and blue for a month afterward. I really despised Luka, beta of the Lunar Fire pack, and intended mate to Mark. Luka is a viper, plain and simple, running the show behind the scenes while Blake, the alpha, is just a figurehead. Luka is beyond cruel and he scared me as much as he scared Mark. I very much enjoyed the story and the ending. I had a few issues with editing problems and the flow of the story. There were instances where something occurred, not on the page, and I was left guessing as to the how, what, when, and where. However, I liked seeing Crash and Mark finally end up together, and I definitely think there's a lot of promise in the idea of, at the very least, four more books. I'll be looking forward to them.

Definitely liked this story of Rick (from the future, Rick; Jesse and Frank's son, Rick) and Cooper (son of the head of the hunters; the guy whose death in a different timeline is what caused the pack to be killed). It was intense, insane, and now that James has found his mate, Austin, who was taken by Cooper's dad and beaten half to death........ Well, there's a war coming....no doubt about it!

I really adored this final installment in the series. BUT, I would have liked to have more information regarding Silas and Sarah, plus a more detailed explanation. I know, I know. I'm picky as hell! All in all, though, this has been a great series that I've enjoyed immensely.

This second book focusing on Brian and Eddie just didn't do it for me....at least, their relationship didn't. Eddie was too wishy-washy for me and I just couldn't relate to him. Brian was a typical alpha but I just didn't get the feels this time. I loved learning more about James and Rick, plus what happened in their future timeline. It looks, though, as if that's all been averted. I would have enjoyed seeing them with their dads, though.

Another sexy, hot read in the world of the Luna werewolves. Eddie was super adorable and Brian was great (at least after he got his head out of his butt). Thanks to James and Rick - the future versions anyway - it looks like Dakota's pack is slowly growing and getting stronger. Can't wait to see who the next book is about!

It was lovely to get some of the mysteries solved. Finally met the duck, Elliott, and he was awesome along with Tavarus, the African water buffalo. It was nice to see Clay get his own happiness after everything he suffered. Now I'm waiting for Basil's story......I'm betting it'll be a good one!

I enjoyed this second installment in the series. There were a lot of underlying similarities to the first book and that was kind of depressing, but Brian was very sweet and so was Quinn. The author has left it on a cliffhanger as Jarryd is missing from his assignment overseas. Of course, it was already revealed at the end of book one that Jarryd's mate is Matt, the Odion agent who came to Earth to find the renegade who was killing people. Matt returned to their home planet and that explains why Jarryd is out there trying to get himself killed.

Categories: Contemporary, Paranormal, Science Fiction, Shape-shifter, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

A very interesting take on the alien-human lover trope. Mac and his men escaped from their planet to Earth five years ago in order to have the freedom to love who they want. Because their species have advanced "abilities" plus a second form, if two men mate they each gain the others power in addition to their own. Their government feared these men would eventually take over, so two men mating is illegal, and if caught they are killed. After five years Mac doesn't think he, or any of his men, will be able to find mates within the human population. Not until he meets Rick, anyway. I liked this beginning to a new series. I would have enjoyed more background and maybe not so much insta-sex for a guy who adamantly refuses to be gay for fear of repercussions from his fellow officers. The mystery suspense was pretty good and I'm curious to see what else the author might have up her sleeve.

This book was way too predictable for my liking. Davian and Manuel's issues with each other and their feelings of betrayal stemmed from a total lack of honesty with each other - that is not a committed relationship. How the families were involved was just too trite.

Not my favorite of all of these books that I've read. This was the first Midnight Matings book by this author that I had read, though. I couldn't connect with the story, the writing or the characters. Something just felt off to me. Asher was cute and so was Zaiden but their relationship seemed rather bland. Maybe it was just me.

Fell head over heels for Chandler! Seriously. Loved him. One of the best omega characters I've seen in a while. He and Dominic were smoking hot together and this was a great addition to the series. I love the fact that the author has James and Rick coming back to help their original pack make it through the danger only they're aware of!

I adored seeing Ash and Dakota again, along with the additional storyline involving Eddie and Brian. The damn hunters just won't leave these Luna werewolves alone and I'm frankly getting as pissed off as they are. Thank goodness that Dakota was in time to help Ash for the birth of their son, James. Now Marcy threw a whole new loop into the storyline at the end and that'll be interesting to see develop.

Planet Glecerus (MMM) by Olivia Black (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )

Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Science Fiction, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

I'm always fascinated by science fiction stories particularly involving other worlds and alien species. It's always remarkable to me how the authors can create such interesting worlds. I wanted to read 'Planet Glecerus' the instant I read a friend's review and I have previously enjoyed this author's work. Sebastian has no one on Earth left. His brother Jason went with the Glecerians ten years prior which enabled Sebastian and his family to be taken care of. Now both his parents are dead, so he volunteered to go to Glecerus to mate with an alien. He didn't bother reading the thousand page manual he'd been given when he volunteered but, seriously, what were these people thinking? Men don't read manuals!! Needless to say, it caused some difficulties in the beginning. Stepping onto the spaceship Sebastian is dumbfounded when he gets his first glimpse of a Glecerian. Seemingly without fear Sebastian walks right up to him and gets lost within his eyes. Unbeknownst to Sebastian this is Captain Regin Priq'aq and the alien has already decided to bid upon him at auction and take him for his mate. Regin has never seen anyone as beautiful as Sebastian and he wants him, wants to mark him, and mate him. Sebastian is stunned to discover, once he reaches Glecerus, that because his brother Jason is mated to a member of the royal family, Sebastian is now considered royalty and can not be bid on. The males who wish to mate with Sebastian will have to compete for him. The problem is that Sebastian is drawn to both Regin and Auden, the High King. I'm not so sure I liked the way the competition was done. I'd have been just as scared as Sebastien was. Oh there were some twists and turns, a pregnancy, and a baby. What more could I ask for? A very good beginning to a series I'm definitely looking forward to more of.

So here I am with the latest installment in Stormy Glenn's 'Scent of a Mate' series and since its been a month since I had my last fix, I was super jazzed to get back to this favorite group of brothers and their mates. 'Tre's Temptations' is about Tre, Dennis, and Neil, and wow was there an awful lot going on. I already liked Tre because how could I not? He's another of Aldo's "son’s" and he has the same honor, courage, loyalty, and fabulousness I've already seen in his brothers. Dennis I can truly only use the author's own words to describe. Suffice to say I loved him just as much as the other omegas, but I'd already experienced Dennis in the previous book. "When the door opened and a short man with the most unruly carrot-colored hair he had ever seen stepped inside, Tre was mesmerized. Aroused. As little man bounced across the room to stand in front of his desk, Tre was pretty sure the rest of his day had just gone to shit. He didn’t need bouncy. He needed a drink." See? Sometimes the author's description is just the best. Neil. Hmm. I didn't care for him at the beginning. He's done nothing but hound and scare Dennis about them being mates no matter how many times Dennis told him no. He was very arrogant in the beginning - "This was not how Nyle saw his mating going. Dennis was an omega. He should have been grateful he was mated to such a powerful feline. Nyle was a strong beta." - and I needed him taken down QUITE a few notches. That attitude didn't sit well with me, Tre, or Dennis! Interesting to discover that Dennis is one of the omegas that Aldo Marshall kidnapped and kept caged. If Aldo hadn't been killed and the warehouses found where he was keeping all of these stolen men, Dennis might never have met Tre and Nyle. Of course, none of this is as important as what/who Dennis finds in the catacombs beneath the house. Where, btw, he shifts for the first time into the absolute cutest, most adorable feline. Not telling you what he is. Meow. (view spoiler) Wow! An incredible addition and based on how it ended, I don't think the series is done yet! Yay! Thank you, Stormy!!

I really enjoyed Cloud, Krakken, and Deimos's intro story. These dragon's who are looking for their third are absolutely the most gorgeous and adorable men EVER. I liked the pace of this story. I even enjoyed the predictability and most of that had to do with me really liking the characters.

I am an honest-to-goodness sucker for an mpreg. Even more when there's a birth involved. I liked this story probably the best because it was different from the last four. It's always nice to get some variety in the storyline. Plus, Jessie was freaking adorable and so was Frank. It's so nice to see this pack getting a little bigger. I see the author is still holding on to the Eddie and Brooks's brother's potential story. Frustrating that Eddie hasn't said anything to anyone, though. Doesn't seem believable but then again I just read a book where a man had a baby. Reality is not a priority here! *snort*

Hands down, Carter is my favorite omega! So far. I really liked Brooks, too, so I guess that makes him my favorite alpha. So far. *grins* Glad to see that Dakota now has a pack. A small pack, but a pack. Dakota, Ash, Calvin, Renny, Brooks, and Carter. Can't wait to see who else ends up with them. Oh, and nice cliffhanger with Brooks's brother showing up at the diner, scaring the crap out if Eddie, Carter's younger brother, and letting Eddie know he's looking for Brooks to kill him. Huh. Bummer.

I liked how Renny and Calvin's mating went and ultimately ended up. I'm wondering whether the author is going to coalesce everyone into a pack and have others join them, but I'll have to wait and see. I was excited that Ash is pregnant although this is going to cause bad mojo for Dakota with his history and grief over what happened with his first mate. I really need one of these alphas to kill Harris, Ash's ex, because that no-good POS needs to die. Truly.

So, so, so good! There's even more intrigue opening up, and I'm salivating for the next book. Baxter and Beau are both pregnant, something is seriously wrong with Clay, as in dying, serious, and the duck is still around. I can't wait to find out what the scientists are really up to, what they did to Clay, and whether it can be fixed. Oh. My. On pins and needles, peeps!

I actually felt that this was a better book in the series than the previous one was. Evan and Cole were more settled, and the author delved a lot more into both of their family lives and backgrounds. Cole managed to get himself kidnapped again, but this time he was the hero and saved Evan. There was some definite drama and action adventure in this second book of the series, so it was well worth it. Fun, sexy, intriguing - what else could you want?

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Much like when I read 'Omega Born' and was interested in discovering Sawney, jumping into 'Claiming His Alpha', book seven in the series, had me curious to find out more about Reece, another Marshall brother I was only vaguely familiar with. About all I knew about Reece was that he's one of the best trackers around. “Fear. Pure unadulterated fear. They were terrified of a slip of a man with platinum blond hair that was spiked and frosted at the tips, fingernails painted every color under the sun, and a pink tutu over his black skinny jeans. Hamilton doubted they had even noticed the eyebrow piercings yet. He wondered how scared they would be if they knew about the piercings under the man’s clothing. The young man danced up to Boston and slid a pink flower into the pocket of his black dress shirt. He skipped past Clint Harper, but placed a yellow flower in the pocket of Tre’s shirt and a red flower in Boone Marshall’s pocket. When he stopped in front of Reece, he stared up at him for the longest time. The air itself seemed to be holding its breath as the two men stared at each other. Even Hamilton’s eyebrows shot up when the colorful man stuck his tongue out at Reece and then danced right out the patio doors as if he had never been there, leaving five very confused enforcers in his wake." I pretty much fell, head over heels, for Šílené at that exact moment. How could I not? I apologize for adding such a large quote to this review, but nothing could capture this young omega, who was miraculously turned into a very powerful alpha, better than the author's own words. Reece is not all that amused by what he considers Šílené playing games with all of them. Doesn't prevent them from succumbing to their lust which us when they both realize they're mates. Of course, being men, miscommunication abounds, Šílené leaves taking Boston with him as his enforcer. *rolls eyes* Men. Sheesh. Hands down, Jude and Šílené are my absolute favorite characters in this series so far. Reece and Šílené were wonderful and I loved this story!

Considering the fact that I had been witness to the beginning of Kumiko's and Trevor's meeting and discovering they were mates in the previous book, I wasn't surprised that the author took it back to the beginning so I could get the more in-depth look and viewpoints from these two main characters. Kumiko has fascinated me ever since I met him. There's a whole lot of anger buried in that little man. And, a history I was interested to discover. Trevor? Oh, that poor boy. I just wanted to protect him. His whole life has been nothing but misery and terror. "Trevor knew that everyone’s definition of hurt was different. He had learned that by the time he was five years old. He also knew that people often lied to get what they wanted. He had learned that by the time he was three." A very sweet addition that I do wish had been longer, with a little more explanation near the end. But, I still had fun and enjoyed reading it.
