Hot Wired (MMF) by Betty Womack (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Contemporary, Multiple Partners, Romantic Suspense

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

If you're looking for a story with a lot of sex scenes, this is one. There are some elements of M/M, but it's more an M/F/M story overall, even if the males characters loves each others. Simple plot, nothing very complex or heartbreaking. It's more about the sex than the love between characters so I wouldn't recommend it if you want love to be predominant in the story.

When Blood Beckons (MM) by Dawn H. Hawkes (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.5
Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Good short story (63 pages) and fast-paced as well. I liked how Mick "whipped" Ivan after they mated! The only complaint I have is I would have loved to see how went the audience with the Council at the end. Might have been funny to read!

Sinful Ella and the Wolf by J. Rose Allister (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$3.99
Categories: Fantasy, Historical, Multiple Partners

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Overall it's a good story, a mix of Cinderella and werewolf fairy tales. The two evil step-sisters, a poor virgin orphaned and a werewolf prince who saved her at the end. The end was rushed, that's the only down point about the book. Still, it was an interesting twist of Cinderella's fairy tale.

In Alien Arms (MMF) by Ellen Starr (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Science Fiction, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Nevada and Sophie are very understanding compared to Desah who is very snob and it takes some times for him to change his mind about seeing humans as equals. The thing is, I'm not even sure what makes him changes his mind so fast. It happens pretty fast with not much explanation. I would have liked to know more things about Desah's planet and race. For an alien race that values sex, there were very narrow-minded about it. Desah was always worrying about doing something taboo and perverse by his people's standard. We don't understand why and that bothered me. The plot had great potential, but not enough backstory for me to enjoy it.

The story was too short. Not enough explaining about the werewolves customs, not enough connection between the characters. I felt that Callen got the bad part of the deal in the end. Ethan didn't compromise, but Callen always had too do it. Got on my nerves, especially at the end. I just felt like Ethan cheated and didn't care about anyone wants but him. Even the ex-boyfriend was annoying. Brent "kidnaps" Ingrid and have every intention to force her to mate with him, but gave up as soon as Ethan and Callen shows up. Ingrid gets annoyed by her mates fast, goes to Brent and demands a ride home. Brent is alone once again with Ingrid, but he suddenly does anything she wants! Some other parts were as incoherent as this one to me. Seems that every characters feelings were shallow and empty. Maybe the other books in the series will be better.

The Cowboy's Property (MF) by Calico Daniels (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$3.5
Categories: Contemporary, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Good story, but too short to make it a great story. Still I liked the sexual tension building between the characters because they were always being interrupted by other people in different stages of sex. I liked "The flaming dragon" part, I regret that it was so short because that could have been a great moment in the book. A restaurant were all the females employees are in reality all males, come on! Could have been so funny, it was a little bit, but could have been a real laugh! Nonetheless, the author has done a great job with very few words. Thumbs up!

Sweet Redemption (MF) by Nicole Morgan (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$6.5
Categories: Contemporary, Romantic Suspense

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Wow! I just loved all the characters, even those with very small parts! Good plot too! This is a classic story, girl gets betrayed by her boyfriend and meet the good guy not so long after. Even if the concept is not original, Ms. Morgan wrote it in her own particular way. Tamara and Jack are not perfect, most of the characters in fact are not, but they are human beings. All those people could really exist and that's what made it such a good story. Even the vilain, Brent, as twisted as he is, have a most horrible past that has ,unfortunatly, am sure happened to some people. I can't wait to read Rex and Shelby's story next!

Of the Panther Persuasion (MF) by Kiyara Benoiti (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.5
Categories: Contemporary, Paranormal

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

It could have been a good story, but it should have been longer to explain more about the world the author created. I felt a little lost sometimes because I would required more explanation about the customs of another planet that seemed to have a great and rich history. It's a great take on shape-shifters from what I know, but the problem is that I don't know enough about the story's world, it's frustating because it has real potential. If only the book's length was doubled, it probably could have been a very good one.

The Sensualization of Anna (MFMM) by Christelle Mirin (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.5
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Way too short! Would have been a much better story if the characters had more interactions between them and more time to developped feelings for each other. More time for the readers to know the characters and make a deeper connection with them. Just more. Still a good story and I loved Anna's bluntness and honesty!

Lynne's Love Triangle (MMF) by Cherie Denis, Missy Lyons (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99
Categories: BDSM, Menage a Trois/Quatre, May-December

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

I got lucky to have a 50% discount on this book and bought it because of the professional reviews. Big mistake! I nearly never write bad reviews about a romance book, but I got to do it the rare times I come across a poor book. What saddens me is it could have been a good story, but it seems to me the story was cut somehow and too rushed. In some places, the story jumps foward too fast and some scenes should more detailed. I didn't feel any connection whatsoever with the characters and sometimes their attitude got on my nerves. Lynne and Kurt were too immature sometimes. Troy was too detached in his feelings, even if he said he loved Lynne and saved her, I didn't believe in it. Near the end, the vilain mr. Edward Branson or Benson (I don't know the right last name because his surname would change every few phrases in the trial scene) is totally useless. It's like "This guy is evil and insane", but there nothing believable about it. He's a prop, there because they needed a bad guy in the story to make it more dramatic and it doesn't work by the way. Even when Sandy, Lynne's friend, is attacked and we found later she was likely raped, I can't seem to care! I feel guilty about it, but it shows how poorly written the book was. Don't make the same mistake I did and don't believe the professional reviews.

$5.99
Categories: Fantasy, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

I love Stormy and this book is another winner. I like the way she approched the two straight guys who don't realize they want each other. Actually one doesn't know and the other doesn't want to tell. Strong female character who doesn't know how strong she is, but the guys aren't afraid and don't try to belittle her powers. Good!

I love Tymber Dalton. Her characters are always real, funny, down-to-earth and the story is heartbreaking. The end is surprising, but very touching. You have to buy this book unless you don't like men being submissive at all. You won't regret it!

I loved the reversal of roles in this story! The big guy being submissive and the little guy protective. Amery's past is so awful and Kirby is very understanding, there was a nice balance between the characters. It was nice how the vilain have a karmic bitch-slap at the end and I just wanted to be in the story so I could say to him "Gna gna, got what you deserved bitch!". Childish reaction I know, but it would make me feel great to say it in front of the asshole! :)

I think the last one in the serie is the best, not just because the story of Sophie and Stephan is awesome, but because Alex and Hannah have finally their own HEA! I loved all the characters in the books, but those four are my favorites! I loved the idea of the dark knight, puts a nice touch to the story!
