Alpha's Ocelot (MM) by Alyssa Jade (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.5
Categories: Paranormal, Shape-shifter, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

I would not recommend this book!!!! In most shifter stories, there is a balance between the mates. But, in this story, there was not. If fact, the imbalance is enormous. Tristan is portrayed as dimwitted and craven. Also, the author stereotyped the smaller gay men as being people who wear make up and love to shop (annoying). I had to force myself to finish the book to see if the author could, in anyway, redeem the story, but she did not. If it had been possible to rate this book a zero, I would have. If the author continues to write stories along these lines, then I will no longer be purchasing her books.

Wrecking Wren (MM) by Fel Fern (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$3.5
Categories: Contemporary, Paranormal, Shape-shifter, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

I enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the series. I only gave this book a 3 because there were so many editing errors that took away for the story. Hopefully the next book will have fixed this problem.

Rude Awakening (MM) by Frey Ortega (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.99
Categories: Contemporary, Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

Most authors know the fine line between building depth to their characters and rambling on. This author, however, doesn't know where the line is or even, I believe, that there is one. The book was drawn out to the point of being boring. There were editing errors that just threw off what little rhythm there was to this story, e.i. calling Adam's late wife his ex wife, name errors and whole sentences that made absolutely no sense. What should have taken me hours to read, took 5 days because I would put the book down again and again. Even the sex scenes were lackluster. I do not recommend this book.

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

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

I was hoping that the second book of this series had been improved as the first one was a disappointment. But, sadly, it isn't. Again the author rushed through the development of the relationship and only wrote about the sex or the conflict. Will not be readying anymore of this series.

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

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

While the conflict in the story was good, then rest was rushed and left the reader wanting. You didn't read how the relationship between Cade and Bret developed. They went from starting their relationship to being in full swing (a comfortable couple living together). The author needs to really expand this story, considering the nature of the relationship.

This was a ridiculous and very disappointing book. Twice within the first 50 or so pages, I nearly close and deleted this book, but it was money spent and I kept hoping that the story would get better. There was no real depth to the characters. Mink comes off as a spineless, flighty little drama queen. The author, later, tries to add some depth to him but it's a case of too little too late. Rafe was the author's try at angst. He's sooo dark inside and doesn't believe that he can ever love again, but a few hours (story timeline) later he's over half in love with Mink and less then 18 hours after that he's getting Mink to move in with him. Caleb seems to be the author's attempt at a deeper character, but falls short on this as well. The story has confusing situations/statements that are never sorted out/explained. This is the first and last book of this author's that I will read. I have, literally, read over 2000 e-books and I have noticed that the quality of the stories being published is deteriorating and this is a good example of that deterioration.

Wesley (MMMM) by Joyee Flynn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

This will be the last of this series that I will read. I have given this series every chance to be a good one and was dissappointed at almost every turn. The blurb leads you to believe that this story is about the lives of Wesley, Bay, Harkin and Levey when, in accuality it's about the lives of Wesley and Tristin. The whole second paragraph of the blurb is, not only misleading, but incorrect as well. The story does not deal with the three's problems or insecurities. The sex scenes were also kind of a let down. No real punch to them. I am starting to think that this is an author that I will NOT be reading again. Save your money. Definitely not worth it or your time.

I couldn't give this book a better rating than fair. This is not a book that I will be reading again. I stopped reading it at page 126 because it was, for lack of a better word, boring (blah). To write this review, I finish the book and still found nothing to change my opinion. The sex scenes were hot, but the blurb lead you to believe that the problem that kept the main characters seperated was the main theme of the story, but it wasn't. It became more or less incidental as the book went on. Started out strong and just fizzled.

Dewey (MMMM) by Joyee Flynn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Menage a Trois/Quatre, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 1 - Poor

There is nothing remarkable about this book, or anything to make me wanted to reread it. The first hundred pages seemed to be about Dewey with Tristan as the other main character. Then a major conflict (problem) ensues and it's more or less glossed over. The ending is too quick. Everything closed up too quickly. Pretty much glossed oner everything. No depth. The other three, supposedly, main characters (Tag, Percy and Azyle) just seemed like secondary characters in this book. It just seemed to have no rythm or reason. Almost like a filler book just to give you background for the next one. Disappointing.

Trip's Fury (MM) by Christine Shaw (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$4.5
Categories: BDSM, Paranormal, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

While the story was ok, I felt there was no real depth to the characters. Everything just felt glossed over and the BDSM part seemed to be added as an afterthought maybe just to sell books. The last part of the blurb lead you to believe that there would be some kind of conflict in the plot, but there wasn't. It just left the story kind of flat. The book was too short to include all that it did, as if it was just a filler story to impart information for future books but added 2 new characters as a bonus. This is a book that I will not read again.

Blood Contract (MM) by Stormy Glenn (Published by: Siren-BookStrand, Inc. )
$5.5
Categories: Paranormal, Vampires/Werewolves, Alternative (M/M, Gay)

This reviewer's rating: 2 - Fair

The story wasn't bad, but the author left some conflicts either unsolved or are confusing with the results. Also, obvious answers to choices in the story are clearly not considered. It just leave the reader wondering why they're reading this book.

This is an author that I will read no matter what genre and I can't say that for many authors. Her stories (this one included) are well written with great characters. Just wish this one didn't seemed rushed through, would have liked a bit more depth.

This was a good book , however because the ending seemed rushed, I can only give it a fair rating. There seemed to be more depth to Tey and his second mate's story then Trey and his first mate's.
