Tally strolled to her apartment building. Her mind never deviated from thoughts of her dilemma. A date to a family wedding so she wouldn’t look like a complete loser in front of her ex. That’s what she’d come to. Why did she care so much this time? She didn’t know. It might be because she’d been the one rejected by everyone other than her grandmother and Nita. She’d been the one snuffed at functions while Paul, the asshole, had been embraced. She wanted a way to show them that she was doing well. No—she wanted to show she was doing great. Childish? Absolutely, but she didn’t care.Taiden, Milly. Twice The Growl (Paranormal Dating Agency, Book 1) . Latin Goddess Press. Kindle Edition.
Talia was disgusted with her ex. Not content with how he treated her, he took advantage of every opportunity to run her down in front of her family. Now her cousin was getting married and Tally just couldn’t bear to show up by herself. Talking things over with her cousin, Nita, gave her the courage to talk to Geri, the sweet older lady who lived down the hallway.
Geri Wilder was so much more than she appeared to be. A shifter herself, she ran her business out of her apartment. She was the “Go To” matchmaker for the shifters in the area, including her own extended family! Theron and Connor were her grandsons, and two-thirds of an Alpha Triad. Giving up on trying to find their mate, they’ve turned to Geri, who has just the woman for them. One who “checks all their boxes!”
This is the absolutely delightful start to the Kindle world knows as the Paranormal Dating Agency. Written with witt and style, it is sure to give you a smile as you read it. The characters are loveable and likeable. The situations they find themselves in are ones that relate to our everyday lives.
Racycarr 5.0 out of 5 stars Twice the pleasure Reviewed in the United States on April 27, 2017 Verified Purchase WOW!! It is hard to believe this is the first book I have read from Milly Taiden. By the way if you have not read any of her books, well then you are missing out. This book was super hot. I just loved the characters in the story. I listen to the audio while following along in the ebook and the narrator did a wonderful job. The thing I loved about the narrator was she done an amazing job pulling you into the story. Listen to her you were able to feel the emotion the character felt and I loved how she was able to change her voice with each character. I normally start talking about the main characters but I think I will start with Gerri Wilder who was Tally’s neighbor. This woman ran a Paranormal dating agency in her home. She had a way of reading you and see who she felt you should be with. I loved how she truly caries for her clients. In the story you will see her show emotion listening to Tally’s story. Tally had pretty much given up on love. I felt sorry for her. She had this terrible ex and it seems that he did not get the memo that he was no longer part of the family. Yeah I would hate to go to family functions to run into my ex with another woman on his arm. I loved how Nita’s solution for Tally was to go talk to Gerri Wilder and have her fix her up with a man. I wonder if Tally would of done just that if she would of know what was in store for her. When the 2 main male characters were introduced, well lets just say they took my breathe away. Connor and Theron was super hot. One had the biker thing going on were the other looked more like a business man. I wonder if Gerri already knew that Connor and Theron was going to come to her for help on finding a mate. It is almost like she has a foresight about things. Tally had a wedding to go to and I loved when she found out who her date or should I say dates were. To expect one man and end up with two. Lucky girl. I loved how this ate at her awful ex.Yeah I did not like her ex at all. I so loved Tally’s grandmother in this story. She is the sweetest thing and thinks the world of her granddaughter, Tally. I also loved Nita who was Tally’s cousin. Tally was so lucky to have these two amazing people in her life. Things will get hot and heavy in this story. Tally will find that she craves Connor and Theron more then she could ever dream. She does worry about one or both of them tiring of her. She fears putting her heart on the line but it is hard when she has two wonderful wolf shifters swooning you. I loved when Tally met Connor and Theron’s pack. This will be a make or break moment. I truly hated Keya who was in the pack but like Aura. Tally will have a decision and will have to listen within to do the right thing. This was a great story and glad I got a chance to read it.
Lisa 5.0 out of 5 stars WOW !! Reviewed in the United States on September 2, 2014 Verified Purchase I was a little afraid of reading this book. I didn't know what I was in for. I started reading this and it was definitely not the normal shape shifting book. It is the normal menage book i am use to reading. But I went into reading this like any other with an open mind. Tally is a human that know that there are shape shifters that she lives among. It is not a surprise to her at all. She was burned by an ex-husband and needed to get out there again when her cousin Nita told her that she should try her neighbors dating service. Gerrie run a paranormal dating agency. She finds mates for the shifters and humans a like. She has a knack for knowing who will fit perfectly for who. Theron and Connor stopped by one night to see Gerrie. Gerrie is Theron's aunt and Connor is his Omega. What they didn't know is that night would be just the thing to change everybody. Not only would things change for Tally but also Theron and Connor. Gerrie would see to that. The thing that could ruin everything would be rushing the one person they knew would be their mate before she figured it out. Would Tally figure out and take a chance with Theron and Connor? Would Tally past be to much for her to forget and move on? I would recommend this book to my friends.
Diedra Drake 4.0 out of 5 stars First audiobook I finished Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2020 On the story itself (2.5 stars): The relationship romance was good, although her best friend is so annoying. The ending... well, let's just say it feels like we rushed past a whole lot of stuff that should have been there or discussed afterward at least. I don't have a problem with the concept of what happens at the end, just felt really sparse on the details. On the audiobook (4 stars): The narrator did really well voicing the primary triad of people, which was good since they're obviously the main characters with most of the book time. She did absolutely amazing on handling the reading of the very graphic sex scenes in a way that sounded natural and didn't ruin the flow at all. The downside is that a lot of the supporting cast were given some variation on the same annoying nasal voice. I will add that this is the very first fiction audiobook I've made it all the way through without falling asleep -- so that really says something to me. I decided to go with the higher rating because I feel the audiobook really elevated it.
