Twice the Growl: Paranormal Dating Agency Book 1

A BBW in need of a date + Two hot Alphas looking for a mate = The hottest triad ever.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Her Rogue Mates (Interstellar Bride Program #13)

No rules. No laws. No mercy. She belongs to them now…

An Earth member of the medical recovery team on Transport Station Zenith, Harper meets two mysterious strangers from an unknown world. With intense eyes and even more intense desires, it’s easy for the two sexy-as-sin aliens to prove how good it can be with them.

Styx, a leader from Rogue 5, knows Harper is destined to belong to him and his most trusted enforcer, Blade. But when Styx is betrayed by one of his own kind, she’s caught in the deadly crossfire. Her mates must tread carefully, for even if they win the battle on the lawless outer moon, they might lose the most important battle of all—the one for Harper’s heart.

His Virgin Bride (Interstellar Brides: The Virgins #2)

This was what I’d never found in a man on Earth. The control, the power. The ability to know exactly what I needed. It was no wonder because there was no question we were Marked Mates. He knew me. “Come. Now.”

His gaze locked with mine and it was like he’d detonated a fuse. My body responded, an orgasm roaring through me as my cries filled his room, echoing off the walls, taunting me with my helplessness. My need.

For him.

I lost control and came back to myself as he held me. He wrapped his arms around my waist, holding me close. Safe. No words were said. None were needed. We were at an impasse and the pleasure he gave me was all he was willing to give. As I drifted in the haze, I knew one thing for certain.

Bryn was mine. He wasn’t leaving me to go hunt some stupid criminal on another world. He wasn’t leaving me at all.

Goodwin, Grace. His Virgin Bride (Interstellar Brides: The Virgins Book 2) . Kindle Edition.

After a life on the streets, Katie chooses the Interstellar Brides Program for a chance at a new life, a new identity. But when she arrives on Everis, her Marked Mate refuses to claim her. As an Elite Hunter, Bryn has to travel to Hyperion, a known world of gangs and vicious evil to bring an assassin to justice, and leave her behind.

She might be innocent in body, but Katie knows her honorable mate is walking into a foreign world, a world she knows all too well. If she must seduce him, she will. If she must steal away on his ship and follow him to another world, she will. And if she must seduce the sexy-as-sin leader of the criminal legions they meet to save her mate? Well then, her innocence is a weapon, and she’s not afraid to use it.

Katie and Bryn are such a hoot! Katie’s familiarity with the world of MC’s is not at all what Bryn expected in a virgin bride. But what really gets you is the way she uses that knowledge! This is a fabulous entry into this spin-off series!

Mated to the Warriors (Interstellar Brides Program #2)

“Hannah lived that, from Anne’s point of view. And that experience is what drew her to you. Don’t be tender, Zane. Stop holding back. She’s a submissive, and she’s sensitive to your needs. She knows you’re not giving all of yourself. She can sense it the same way you know she’s unhappy and uncomfortable around you. But she doesn’t know what you want her to be, Zane. She needs you to be who you truly are; she needs to know the rules. She won’t give herself to you, she won’t love you, she won’t trust you until you bare your soul to her and let out the beast.”

Goodwin, Grace. Mated to the Warriors (Interstellar Brides Book 2) (p. 113). Stormy Night Publications. Kindle Edition.

Hannah belonged to a very small group, Earth women who actually volunteered to be a Bride. She did it to save her brother. Now that she had, she was very surprised at the planet she was matched to. Prillon brides lived on board the warships.

Zane Deston hadn’t wanted a bride. His mother was the one who submitted his information. However, now that she was on board ship, everything was different. The only problem was that she appeared to be so small. Surely someone so small would be too delicate to withstand his full passion. So he held back with her.

This is another great entry for this series. You gotta love the new race and world highlighted by this book. To have not one, but two hunky guys dedicated to you would be every woman’s dream. Not so sure I would appreciate the audience however!
