Very good book. So much better than Book 10 (I have no clue what happened with that one). This is the kind of DLD book I have come to expect--full of emotion and heart. Loved all the men, especially Jaxon who was their leader and Gabe whose struggle and fear was so realistic. I really appreciated that Gabe physically struggled and didn't have a quick fix. Alana was strong and more than capable of taking care of herself which was great. Overall, I really liked this installment of the series.

I LOVE this s author's books but I could not get into this one at all. In fact, I actually stopped reading it a couple of months ago but but finally decided to finish it up now. I have read many books in this series, even the Book 9, the one right before this one. Yet I HAD NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON in this story. Too many characters, different factions of the Russian mob, some weird business deals.....I was like, WTF?? I couldn't follow any of it. Aspen was supposedly working some back door deal that would "save" the men from.....I guess a life in the mob that they were already living? She brokered a $20-$40M deal that supposedly could be a step to leaving the mob. But the author tells us they are BILLIONAIRES. So why would a $20M+ deal make any difference???? As for Aspen, she is a "trainer"---she supposedly helps train employees at diff companies--which sounds more like a HR person frankly. So how is it she is is brokering million dollar deals? I didn't understand any of the characters' motivations. And why exactly are military men in the mob? Seriously this book was so frustrating. It didn't make any sense to me and after a while I just started skimming. I Very disappointing.

Dare to Love (MFMM) by Dixie Lynn Dwyer (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

So far, I've liked this book the most in the series. It was more realistic. Unlike the other heroines in the series, Mercedes wasn't overcome with insecurities and doubts, she had issues, but they felt proportional to the story. She made sense, something I couldn't say with some of the other women (e.g. Alicia in Dare to Succeed). Same tith the heroes. They were strong and very Alpha, but not overbearing and unreasonable. My only real issue was that the ending seemed rushed, especially the the last few sentences, literally. But overall, a good book and like I said, the best in the series so far.

Lena's Happily Ever After (MFMMM) by Dixie Lynn Dwyer (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$7.99
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Just OK for me. Lena's story as well as Bryant's was very compelling. Unfortunately I thought Bryant's miraculous recovery wasn't realistic or dealt with well. His relationship with Lena was great, but the relationship with his parents and brothers felt really incomplete. After watching Bryant yelling and cursing his entire family for the longest time, suddenly having sex with Lena in a menage repairs those broken relationships? That's basically what happened. If there was a scene where Bryant apologized to his parents and brothers I missed it. It was like they all just decided to forget Bryant's horrible treatment of them. Sure he had PTSD, but still. The author was so detailed about Bryant's harshness, you'd think she'd have given us more closure about that. For example, he's now doing physical therapy but his he getting psychological help? Was Lena's love acruelly a cure-all for PTSD of all things? Hard to buy. Also, the ending g felt really rushed. Overall, not one of my favorites.

Catch Her When She Falls (MMF) by Missy Martine (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.99

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Such as awesome book. I loved that Serena wasn't a typical, goody two shoes heroine. She'd made a a lot of mistakes but tried to make up for them and change. She also had a lot of pain in her past and the author was great at helping us understand why she acted the way she did. Loved the heroes, who were totally rational by being cautious but also open minded enough to judge Serena on their interaction with her, and not what other people said. A wonderful, emotional story of love conquering all.

Wild Need (MFMM) by Jane Jamison (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )

Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Shape-shifter, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

Ugh. No thanks. First, I am all for demanding, hard driving alpha males. The men/wolves in this book? They were just jerks and totally unappealing. They lured Kate to town under the pretense of offering her a job as Tucker's personal assistant. When she gets there, they suddenly tell her she will be asst to them all, that she is basically on call 24/7, that she has to live in their house and do everything they say, and that she should even cook for them (including breakfast at 6am). Uh, WTF? Yet Kate basically accepts all this unprofessional ism without a second thought. It was totally ridiculous. Then, within a couple of hours of her arrival, she is having sex with one of them and kissing another. It was all just.....chauvinistic (on the men's part) and frankly, icky (on Kate's part). In another scene, a man barges in and exposes himself and almost forces himself on Kate and guess what, Travis accuses HER of basically....I don't know, enticing the guy, coming on to him....I don't know. UGH. I just can't even. There were a few nice scenes with Kate, the men, and their dog that provided some nice emotion, but other than that I was not into the way Kate was treated or portrayed at all.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Good, thought he action was a bit anticlimactic. This book is on par with Book 1 of the series. It's definitely better than Book 2 which I did not care for. One issue I have had throughout the series: Have none of these women ever heard of call blocking??? I realize the women getting all of these badgering phone calls is a plot device but it's a little ridiculous when the heroines can easily push a button on their phones to block someone's number. It makes them look bad IMO, and kind of dumb.

London's Mates (MMF) by Fel Fern (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$3.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Shape-shifter

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

Loved this book. Each character had their own distinct personality. I loved Charity's strength (and the fact that London accepted it and let her show it), Ferus' loyalty but also his vulnerability after years of unrequited love, and finally London, who was strong and brave enough to recognize amd accept a bond with both Charity and Ferus immediately. There was no hesitation, he just went for it even though it would mean convincing both of them and cause problems with his family. It was so refreshing. Sigh.... I just loved this trio! My only issue: there was no MM aside from a brief kiss here or there. I thought that was disappointing b/c even though Londom and Ferus were lovers for yrs, London made it strictly about sex before Charity. Now that London was admitting his true, deeper, feelings for Ferus, I wanted the two men to have a scene acknowledging that new turn in the relationship. A love scene, something just for them or with Charity, but where the men were the focus. But all the love scenes were MFM. A strang choice by the author IMO and one that to didn't do complete justice to London/Ferus or the full dynamic of the trio. Still, this was not enough to for me to downgrade my rating as I still loved the story.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Good book. After loving Book 1 but being disappointed in Book 2, I'm so happy to say that this series feels like it's back on track IMO. I enjoyed seeing Brody and Hannah get their own stories after getting glimpse of them in previous books. Drew and was good I his own right and I really felt the love he and Brody felt for each other. My only complaints were 1) I wish the story had been longer. I wanted more of the trio's evolving relationship. 2) The ending was SUPER rushed. It actually did a disservice to a story that up to that point had been building slowly and well. Despite the ending, this is a good book and I hope there will be another installment.

Dare to Succeed (MFMM) by Dixie Lynn Dwyer (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

Was looking forward to Alicia's book after reading about her in Book 1 (Marlena's story). Unfortunately, I didn't much care for her in this book. There's a difference between being a little insecure and just being....whiny and frankly....DUMB. Alicia's ex cheated on her and stole her money, her brother couldn't care less, and yet she took their phone calls constantly. Wouldn't stop taking their calls actually. The reasons? I finished the book and am STILL not sure. None of her excuses made any sense to me. I WANTED to root for her but the writing made it too hard. She was constantly crying, doubting / second guessing herself. That was OK a few times but in this book that's ALL she ever did. Cry and vacillate. I wasn't convinced at the end that she should even HAVE a storefrontof her own--not b/c her ex stole her 1st biz, but b/c she seemed (in conversations with the men) to have no clue what to do, how to handle anything herself. The HEA was great for Alicia, but as a reader, I didn't feel like she'd grown internally at all by the end of the book. She was even semi depressive near the end until Max gave her some good news re: Tony. Love this author and I generally like vulnerable, realistic heroines, but for me Alicia was too much. Too weak to the point of annoying.

Three-Day Weekend (MMFMM) by Lolita Lopez (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$6.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

This was a an OK/Pretty Good book. If I could, I'd give it 3.5. It's definitely better than Average, but b/c of some issues, I can't say it's definitively Good. What I Liked: The heroes, particularly Con. He was the Alpha and I loved the way he was initially tortured about his feelings and then became so protective and loving. I liked that all the men got good "alone" time with Shelby to develop their individual relationships with her. LOVED Ty and Chuck--they were HOT. What I Didn't Like: Shelby wasn't very fleshed out, compared to the men. I liked her personality, but she didn't have much to do at all except have sex with the men. I wasn't into the somewhat crazy cast of characters in town (Gee, Erin, Gee's grandmother) and found myself skimming that. I also though the mystery of Shelby's family was a let down since nothing much really came of it. Still, despite some flaws, if the author makes this a series I would read it.

The Trouble with Holly (MFM) by McKinlay Thomson (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.99
Categories: BDSM, Contemporary, Menage a Trois/Quatre, Western/Cowboys

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

I really, really liked Book 1 (Foul Play) of this series and decided to pick up this installment. Unfortunately, I was really, REALLY disappointed. Holly started over in Merrick after ending a bad relationship. She is a total klutz, which, you'd think would be sort of cute but it was most definitely NOT. She wasn't just klutzy, she was a walking DISASTER. I think one of the me. Even called her that! By her own admission, she had multiple car wrecks, numerous broken bones, one of which occurred in this story, she trips and falls all over the place.... Honestly it was so over the top it was annoying that she came across as so dumb and/or helpless. Then she did really stupid things like driving off into storms b/c she didn't hear from the men (hello, ever heard of cell phones??). UGH I could not get into her character al all. Then there were Chase & Jarrod. They are supposedly big time Doms at the local BDSM club yet lived with their parents. The author explained the reasoning which I got, but really? It just seemed so unnecessary and unromantic to have have their potential girlfriend living with them and their parents. What a turn off! Finally, the ending/danger---totally thrown in at the last minute. Overall, I feel like this was written more as a comedy than a sexy, dramatic or suspenseful read. I do not want my erotic romance novel to be a comedy. The ONLY saving grace? The glimpse of the new hot, gay doctor in town. He was interesting and hopefully he gets a book of his own---preferably a serious one.

First time reading this author. The story idea was good but the execution was off for me. There were too many holes in the story that were never filled. The biggest one was Keira herself. She was kidnapped and rescued by Malcom & Heath. They took her to their ranch to recover and then she just....stayed there. True, she had no family and no friends (convenient) but she also had a job, I assume an apartment, clothes, a tiny bit od money at least, etc., etc. Yet NONE of this was ever addressed by the author. Did the girl not have bills that she left behind or belongings? Also, after her rescue, NO ONE asked her any questions. No interrogation, NOTHING. These guys were SEAL'sbut didn't do a background check on her or Bradley...it was ridiculious! It took a week for the men to figure out Bradley's role in the plot which just made them all look foolish. As for the psychic angle, I didn't mind it, but it wasn't adequately explained. Perhaps it was all explained in Book 1? Why did Heath's entire team amd sister have different psychic abilities? Where did it come from? Even Keira had precognitive dreams--also not explained. I could go on and on but you get the gist. I was eager to read this book based on the excerpt but was ultimat,eu disappointed. I think the author has promise, but needs to work on fleshing out story and characters more.

An OK book, but very little happened throughout the story. There was a tiny bit of action near the end but the story was essentially Angela working for Randy and Travis and the two men slowly trying to woo her, but in a subtle, almost undercover way. So subtle in fact, that their proposal felt like it came out of nowhere. Overall, not a bad book by ant means, just a bit boring and in need for more action.

Hidden Dragons (MFMM) by Becca Van (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Paranormal, Shape-shifter

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Disappointing. Love this author but her books can be hit for miss sometimes. This one just felt simplistic and the writing was clumsy IMO. The heroes didn't come across as very smart; the heroine was better, but was weirdly accepting of her situation. Well, to be fair, she was somewhat disbelieving of dragons but easily got over it. I think the main problem was the world building. Clumsy is the only way I can describe it. The fact that the dragons didn't seem to know or understand their own history until their mentor Lance explained it to them made no sense. Which makes you wonder, had they just been living in some blissful underground paradise with no one questioning their own existence, history, relationship to humans, etc.? An yet they had al the modern conveniences--video games, state of the art appliances, etc. Later, when the entire den (who just learned of their own backstory days before) turn around and explain it to Bid, it's in the most simplistic, shrugging way....I was like, "Really?" Then there was the villain, who was fairly cardboard-ish and not compelling. The wording amd phrasing throughout the book makes me think this had to be a re-issue. This book just didn't feel up to the author's usual skill...like it was an older work.. Maybe I'm wrong. All I know is, this was disappointing.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Good book. The heroine was smart and independent and I really liked that about her. The men were pretty overbearing, perhaps a bit more than in some of the author's other books. But the heroine stood up for herself thank goodness. One thing I didn't like was that the author brought up a backstory of "issues" between Douglas and Pierre and it came up in a couple of scenes with Mikayla but it was never followed up on. I really wanted to know what that was all about but nothing ever came of it. In fact, I felt bad for Douglas. He had some kind of business mistake alluded to early in the story and then he made a but mistake with Mikayla later in the story. I didn't like that Douglas seemed to get the short end of the stick vs. the other brothers--especially since of all of them, Douglaswas perhaps the most intriguing, sensitive, and mysterious.

This reviewer's rating: 4 - Good

Another good book from DLD. I enjoyed all the characters---Marlena was strong, despite being afraid to get into a relationship with the men, and the men were wonderfully patient. I am really looking forward to the books involving Marlena's friends. I did havea few issues with the book, but nothing that dampened my enjoyment too much: After Mike's past was brought up by one of his brothers, I thought that was foreshadowing--that we would see Mike finally share exactly what happened to him. I was disappointed it didn't happen and it made me wonder why it was included at all. Also, there were some grammatical errors/typos ("edition" instead of "addition"). Overall though, this is, as usual a winner by he author.

$5.99

This reviewer's rating: 5 - Outstanding

A great, emotional book. I loved seeing Angela transform and grow from the troublemaker in Book 1 to the vulnerable, caring, deeply scarred woman in this book. Wolf and Lawrence were wonderful---so caring and patient and also super HOT. I liked that the author established the love between Wolf and Lawrence first and then moved into a threesome. If I had any quibbles, they were Connor being a bit weak, Lawrence not having as much 1 on 1 time with Angela as Wolf had with her, and the ending being a bit anticlimactic. I thought Wolf, Lawrence, and Connor deserved to be more involved in the final confrontation, especially since that seemed to be foreshadowed. Yet, it didn't happen. Still, that slight disappointment didn't dampen my overall feeling for the book, which is that it is a wonderful, moving story.

I read book 1; hadn't read any others in this series again until now. Clearly I missed a lot from the books in between cuz I was fairly lost. This really is NOT a stand alone book and there is no warning to tell you this. Apparently Jennifer had a big part in her sister's book and this is now her story. Except, it didn't really feel like her story because there was some parallel story about a missing pixie princess that dominated the book. Who was this pixie girl and her family? I had no idea and I didn't really care. I just wanted to get back to Jennifer, Thomas and Adam. Problem was, the trio barely had any time together in person. Most of their relationship took place in shared dreams. It took forever for them to physically be in the same room together. When it finally happened it was...meh. Why? Because it seemed like the story went right back to the pixie royal drama. I didn't get it, I didn't care, and I was disappointed.

Love this author and have read many books in this series. I didn't read the one that seems to have introduced Kat though, so I was a little lost in the book's 1st scenes. Clearly the foursome had already gotten to know each other in a previous installment. This may be why I had trouble getting into this story. I felt a little like I was missing something since the story opened with all the characters deciding to date. Putting that aside, there was nothing wrong with the book, I just can't say I was very engaged in it. It wasn't bad or good it was just...there. The characters, the plot....I was like "Eh". And I hate to be dispassionate cuz again, I LOVE this author. For for some reason, I wasn't into this one.

Loved Book 1 in this series. Book 2, while hot, didn't really work for me. My issues: 1) The premise/set up. Kinsey left her job as a military medical pilot after her Master (Nelson) was killed. The author gave us the impression that Kinsey was happy with him, cared for him, and was devastated at his death. Halfway thru the book Kinsey suddenly made a couple of comments that implied their relationship was not love but still meaningful. Then there was a twist at the end that came out of nowhere that totally put everything the author had told us about that relationship into doubt.....it was totally confusing and strange. 2) Kinsey's predilection for risk taking. Apparently, a long standing issue that she NEVER actually addresses except to have Drake & Logan take care of/dominate of her. It was disappointing that the author went for this quick fix when clearly Kinsey had bigger issues. 3) Drake & Logan were HOT but the way Drake initially was portrayed as all knowing and pratically psychic was a bit much. He immediately KNEW that she was in immense emotional pain, that his kiss brought back a painful memory etc. etc. That was RME-ish. 4). As hot as the trio was, I didn't understand WHY they were together. Well for Kinsey it was self preservation but for the men?? They just fell into insta love it seemed. I didn't buy it. 5) Finally as another reviewer mentioned, there were lots of editorial mistakes--wrong words, one character referred to by the wrong name, etc. Overall, I was sooooo looking forward to this book and I love this author, but must admit it I was ultimately disappointed in this installment. I'll be looking forward to the next book though!
