Tangled in Tinsel: Dragon Guard Series Book 28

“Well, hello there. Are you my Christmas present?” His voice was just the right mix of smooth bass and sultry smoke that Belle’s mind shut down and her mouth took the lead. “You’ll have to unwrap me to find out.” Moral of the story…I should always follow my instincts, and I’m gonna kick Lizzie in the shin for making me leave the house.

It’s over the river and through the woods, and straight to Christmas hell for Chance Nichols. His twin has taken off on a mission to the Frozen North and most of the other Guardsman are cuddled up with their mates, so it’s up to Chance to get the Lair decorated before the snow begins to fall.

One trip to town for decorations and Happy Holidays has turned into Scary Grinchmas. According to the latest report, the North Pole is completely shut down. The elves have revolted, the reindeer have flown the coop, and Mrs. Claus is on strike – talk about up the proverbial tree without an extension cord.

Visions of sugarplums can’t fix this one. It’ll take a whole lot of dragon magic, sprinkled with fairy dust and tied together with yards of tinsel and garland.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Wonderful! Fabulous Christmas story of true love. Chance, like his twin Noel, is an emerald dragon. His mate is the Christmas Fairy. Their meeting and mating will leave you smiling for hours

This book is about the Christmas Fairy who slipped & was caught by the Christmas Dragon (cause him & his twin were born on Christmas).

Belle or as her BFF calls her Tink will turn 100 years old on Christmas & she’s still single & not in a happy mood.

Chance while out with Kayne to get Christmas decorations for the lair literally catches his mate (before she falls to the ground) & loses her as she runs away to get to work on time.

This book does have a good vs bad fight scene in it as well as Mr. & Mrs. Clause. But, to find out who & what the bad guys are doing to try & ruin Christmas you’ll have to read the book.

This is book 27 in this series, which means this author is challenged to add a uniqueness that would set this tale apart from all others. And Julia Mills delivered. This tale is fully immersed in Christmas references and spirit abound. It’s a tad corny, but during this time of year, it totally matches the ugly sweater mania! The characters are fully imagined, and the heroic dragon guard is definitely swoon worthy. Ms. Mills hit all the buttons that her readers have come to expect, including the quirky humor between the fated pair! A perfect read to keep me in the holiday spirit!

Mate (Forbidden Desires Book 3)

Spitfire Disgrace Matthieu Boudreaux has one wish: to age out of the Pedigree he despises, then destroy it. With one year left before he achieves the first step of his goal, Matthieu finally has some hope for an independent future… until a surly Amethyst dragon by the name of Geoffrey Drake and his entourage show up at Matthieu’s cloister and inform him he’s been selected to be part of an ‘experiment.’ 

Geoffrey Drake, proud and stuffy legal counsel for the Amethyst clan, has been charged with ruining his own life. His mission? Deliver a potential mate to the son of the Amethyst clan’s most despised enemy—and the man he’s loved in secret for the last hundred years—Topaz dragon Ian Brand. Refusal is impossible. Dragons don’t consort with dragons, and should Geoffrey decline, he risks exposing them both.

Ian Brand, charming black sheep of the Topaz clan, is trapped between his forbidden love for an Amethyst dragon centuries his senior and his duty to his family. Chosen by his unhinged father to be the Topaz candidate for the mating experiment, Ian is faced with a terrible choice: run away with the man he loves and face the deadly consequences, or accept his fate with a broken heart.

But dragon magic, as Matthieu, Geoffrey, and Ian soon discover, works in mysterious ways. When an unforeseeable circumstance draws them all together and puts their futures at risk, they have no choice but to set their differences aside and work together to prove a new, startling truth…

What the dragon world knows about mates has been wrong all along, and it will be up to the three of them to prove it.

Mate Things I learned: What a group of Peacocks is called.

A/B/O politics: Where Alpha/Alpha and Omega/Omega pairings are the equivalent of modern gay couples, and typically frowned upon in this Italian city-state style world government.

Favorites: Dragon shifters -- my favorite shifters in general.

The author duo's talent for dry punchlines and witty banter adds depth and character to the story that many books in this genre lack, taking this series from enjoyable to memorable and re-readable.

Snorre is an amazing side character -- absolutley not what I originally pictured. Do you like older silver fox papi's? A new favorite secondary character -- sarcastic, lecherous, and opposed to any and all societal norms? Yes please.

I'm generally less into the m-preg aspect of m/m books unless it involves shifters, but I was even more intrigued picturing gorgeous apricot and aubergine dragon welps scampering around their infatuated sires.

I love the dynamic, you have a Montegu v.s. Capulet rivalry between the Amethyst and Topez clans (with a hea). Ian, dominant and firey wants Geoffery the moment the other alpha sets eyes on him. He can sense Geoffery's need to submit. Already bonded in secrecy, they resent the experiment forcing Ian to bring an omega (Matthieu) home just to sire a clutch for his father's political machinations. Neither of them expect to fall for the feisty French Omega.

I absolutely recommend the entire series if you like shifters, m-preg, urban fantasy, and flirty, comedic banter. Notes: Per most A/B/O dynamics and societal systems, there are elements of dub con.

I think that this is my favorite in the series. I love how complicated the guys make everything and yet how simple their connection are. The new information that is revealed about dragons, in this world, is a great addition to the series. Harry has such a blast with everything.

I love how Matthieu doesn't take things sitting down and he wait for the Alpha dragons to solve their problems. Geoffrey is so complicated and has some problems accepting himself. He feels so deeply and works hard to protect his loves. Ian knows what he wants. He tries to protect his dragons and also put them before himself even when he shouldn't.

This is a great story. There is no cheating and I highly recommend that you give it a try even if you have an issue with threesomes.

Mate is the third book in the Forbidden Desires series, a paranormal romance series with A/B/O dynamics and dragon shifters. This book could technically be read by itself but I highly suggest reading the first two books in the series for maximum enjoyment.

This installment of the series brings a lot more worldbuilding and dragon history. It is fascinating how the Pedigree works and the way the dragon society has been functioning for hundreds of years. The romance between Matthieu, Geoffrey, and Ian was full of obstacles, but their happy ever after ending was well earned and an exciting journey to go on as a reader.

The audiobook was narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo who did a great job, especially since he had so many characters to voice. I never once got lost in the story due to how well Michael voiced each character. The audiobook production was well done and made for a really wonderful listening experience.

First of all, it's dragons. Second, it's MPreg or should I say MEgg. Third, it's hysterically funny. Fourth, have I mentioned that it's DRAGONS? I can't tell you how much I adore this world. I want to jump right in and live there. I loved Alistair and Nate. Then I fell head over heels for Harry and Everard. Now Geoffrey, Ian and Matthieu and their peacocks have taken over my heart. To be honest, Geoffrey was such a stick in the mud for the first two books, I wasn't sure I could love him. But once I read the prologue, I knew I was doomed. We had barely scratched the surface of Geoffrey. There were so many things about him that he kept buried deep down. It took the love of another alpha and a very special omega to bring out the real Geoffrey.

I loved every minute of this series. I love the alphas and the sweet omegas but those babies just melted my heart. Especially Darwin and Julius. I absolutely adore those two. Maybe they'll get their own book down the road. I certainly hope so

Noel had been asked by three of the most renowned Guardsmen in history asked him for a favor. To go on a mission into what was referred to as the Frozen North. At six foot ten inches, he'd never before experienced anything he couldn't walk over .. Until now and he was freezing. But the man he was sent to look for was not only a personal friend of the mad dragon but the son of a god. During his trek he heard voices and came face to face with a sleigh being pulled down hill by what appeared to be a runaway reindeer trading vehement insults with an very grouchy elf knocking into him and leaving him dazed and unconscious.
You can tell by reading this storyline it was filled with the wonder of Christmas. Pure personalities full of a plethora of emotions, both good and bad, take control of these characters making parts of it like a comedy of errors leaving me chuckling out loud. Not to say there wasn't the expected angst and intrigue to keep the plot active, because there was. And don't let me forget to mention the fate of the Guardsman finding his mate, or vice versa as may be in this case. A truly joyful story you'll want for your collection.

There is constant delight in the latest Dragon Guard book, where scenes are not only fascinating but also highly entertaining. This standalone story takes place near Christmas, yet the premise can definitely be enjoyed any time of the year. I could not keep from laughing loudly at some of the more humorous moments, while the situations filled with emotion or sexy desire were just as captivating. Julia Mills makes DRAGON GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER imaginatively enchanting over and over again.

When Nowell was asked by several important Guardsmen to undertake a task, the dragon readily agreed and finds himself trudging through deep snow near the North Pole. Before the person whom he was sent to find can be located, he falls down and is then hit by a fast-moving sleigh pulled by a reindeer which has an elf driver. When Nowell wakes up, what he discovers is truly surprising.

Between the witty banter and unexpected happenings, I found DRAGON GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER to be cleverly inventive and so much fun. Julia Mills makes Nowell a very appealing dragon, while Scarlett is a lively reindeer with a sparkling personality. Toss in a cranky elf who never seems to be happy, and the book is certainly interesting. The many creative words spoken by these characters had me repeatedly chuckling, and the visuals also induced some big smiles. An engaging story on every page.

This quick read was an absolute delight. The two main characters were so much fun, and while one of the side characters kinda grated on my nerves, when the two main characters kept having the SAME reactions to him, it just made me laugh.

For such a short story, I was amazed how much story there was in here. Often short reads like this get distracted from whatever prompted someone to "go out and about" but not so with Nowell. Scarlet found herself in ways she never could have expected, she may have been last in line as a Reindeer for Santa's sleigh, but I felt she discovered that pulling his sleigh had not actually been her calling in the first place, which doubled the charm of the story for me.

The Sassy Mates are back again with a whole new twist this time! This is book 3 in the series, be sure to check out the first two before reading this one. So this books starts off at the same point as the first two, at the scenting ceremony. If you are like me and love Milly's hot and sexy starts, this one will not disappoint 😉 Then we fast forwards to a few months later, reminding us of what has happened to Jordan and Karla in the first two books before continuing on! Book 3 focuses on Jake and Nic, you can expect hot & sexy scenes, comic relief, frustration at the evil scum, and lack of communication - what more could you ask for! Nic has a very cold mother and step-father, who only are looking for fame and power, they never have shown Nic love so when she finally starts to feel something for Jake she is so confused! And now a bit about the story...

Jordan is worried about the plans for her upcoming wedding, after the attacks on her and Ellie she is nervous, and now she has to plan this gigantic wedding. Nic comes to the rescue with the idea of heading to Vegas for a girls only bachelorette party to take her mind off everything. It will also let her to see her sister too, she will unfortunately have to see her parents too, but what is one dinner in a long trip to Vegas? Especially after she gets smashed and pulls one of the standard Vegas tricks. Little does she know that trick is what will save her life and her heart!

Favorite passages:
- “My kids think there was some sort of miracle conception where they’re concerned.” She shrugged her shoulders and smiled at Kel. “If only they’d realize it took a lot of growling and spanking to actually get each of them.”
- “I’ll tell him that if he hopes to get any kind of a long lasting relationship with you he better do more than make your panties wet.”
- “You belong to me.” His evil smile grew wide. “You’ve been bought and paid for, little one.”
- “You got chocolate and coffee? I might let you seduce me all over again for some of that.”
- “Cut it out. You know you’re hot. All those tattoos can drive a woman wild in all kinds of ways. Let’s not forget the sexy ass.”
- Ellie shrugged. “You know what they say, whiskey gives you balls.” She passed him a shot. “Here, have one. Maybe then you’ll grow some too.”

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

From the moment that Nicole met Jake Wolfe’s eyes it was lust, love at first sight. For eight years it was the battle of the sexes between the two of them with neither one the winner until the night of the scent ceremony. Since the night when Jake had claimed her as his mate, eight weeks had passed and Nicole had done her best to avoid him. She looked at Jake as a player, a man-whore, someone that would never settle for one woman and only one woman. The fact that he owned a strip club that had women paying shifters to strip really set Nicole’s jealousy button off. Everything about him made her feel insure and the fact that he had not stated how he felt about her didn’t help at all! Did they even have a relationship?

Nicole was driving him insane! He had waited eight years before claiming her as his mate during the scenting ceremony and what good had it done? She still would not accept him and avoided him at all cost. He was delegated to watching her from a distance more or less like a stalker. When he heard that the girls were going to Vegas to get away and relax it sounded like a good idea until he got a call telling him that another man had approached his mate. Not in this lifetime, he had waited long enough and it was time to complete the mating!

Jake has his hands full convincing his stubborn mate to accept him. Can Nicole see beyond the surface and see the real Jake? Will the war that is brewing between some of the shifter factions pour over and drag them under? Read this action packed, sexy novel and discover the World of the Wolfe family and their feisty mates.

Grammar/editing: B – a few small errors

This is the third book in the Sassy Mates series. They do need to be read in order.

The first time Nicole met Jake, she was visiting her friend Ellie. She opened the wrong door and there he stood, naked and wet from the shower. Nic lusts for Jake. Jake knows that she is his mate, but Nic doesn’t understand how to love and Jake refuses commitment. Ah, but the social lubricant known as alcohol in the City of Sin leads these two down to the altar. When you get out of the way of your brain and let the heart lead, wonderful things can happen. Of course, some not so wonderful things can also happen and they will need to be handled.

Starting at the scenting ceremony once again, we are introduced to more of the personalities of Nicole and Jake. Their passion is smoking hot. Finding out about Nic’s family and the type of people they are, certainly does help to put her personality into perspective. I’m just glad that they hadn’t destroyed the fierce warrior that she is. She stands up for herself and I was cheering every step of the way.

In each of the previous books, I mentioned a theme. So, I will try with this one. In fact, I think there are two: ‘be true to yourself’ and ‘allow yourself to be happy.’

Milly Taiden never fails to deliver sassy, BBW girls and hot, alpha, protective men. I love this series. First there was Aric and Jordon. Then Nathan claimed Karla. Now Jake has finally gotten his Nicole down the aisle. Ellie has four brothers. Three have found and claimed their mates in spectacularly different ways. I can’t wait to see how Mason corrals his chosen sassy girl!

Uther, the Sky Dragon known as the Avenger hears the call from his mate from above, nothing, not even the black magic that trapped him will stop him or his Dragon, their mates call for help. From beneath the surface to a roaring volcano Uther is on a mission, Woo hoo.

Mara is the witch that has been trapped inside herself while the demon Thanatos uses her soul and body for evil. What he makes her do is horrible. Her mate is the only thing she hopes and prays will hear her call for help.

Another fantastic story you must grab, it will be well worth it.

Uther, also known as the Avenger.
A.K.A. and Enforcer literally claws his way to the surface of having been buried alive after hearing the voice of his mate Mara calling to him.
Talked about determined.
All it took was hearing her voice and he was out of there!

Mara has been living in hell. Almost literally.
She was first controlled by Cleland and is now being possessed by the demon Thanatos.
Mara wants her torment to end.
The things she's been made to do.
The horrors.
Mara feels that there's no coming back for her.
She will forever be tainted.

Uther says otherwise.
So do her sisters and mother.
The McKinnon's have not given up on bringing Mara back to them.
Will Mara, her sisters, Uther, and the guardsmen finally rid themselves of Thanatos once and for all?

Uther, a Star Dragon and Guardsman, has been buried for 100 years, when he hears her voice calling for help. She happens to be Mara, a witch who is under the spell of an evil Demon. She also happens to be Uther's mate. With the help of Uther's Dragon King, Brennus, he manages to escape his silver coffin which has been his prison . Now he has to find his mate and the story unfolds.
What an imaginative, a little dark, edge of your seat and emotional roller coaster ride this story is. Grabs you in from start to finish! Has magic, suspense, romance and a special jaguar, named King. Just loved this book as I do all of the Dragon Guard series!! Bravo Julia!!

Seriously....#26 and still going strong with this series. Just gets better! Sweet story between Uther and Mara. Man you just cant help but feel for that woman. Trapped in her own body and doing such terrible things and having no control. Will her Dragon mate be able to hear her call and save her? Being trapped himself surrounded by Black Magic...will he allow that to stop him? Hmmm guess you should read and find out! 🙂

The Alion King: Paranormal Dating Agency #6

This was the kind of sex she’d only dreamt of—a man who wanted her body so completely he lost control for her. That was all good, but it was the way he kissed her, so tender and loving, the way he stroked her body like she was a goddess, that shoved a lump into her throat.

Isabella Barca is great at organizing—not so great at keeping her nose out of trouble. When Bella goes to work as Mrs. Wilder’s assistant, the opportunity of a lifetime pops up: travel with Gerri to another planet, a shifter planet, and help Gerri find a lion king his mate.

Alyx Treyvaal isn’t known for being patient. A lion doesn’t ask for help. A lion doesn’t apologize. And he most certainly does not purr. But once he meets Bella, he finds himself doing all of the above…except for purring. He will not purr.

With wolves stirring all kinds of trouble for them and a cousin who would like to shred Bella to ribbons, things are not simple for the couple. Not at all. One thing’s for sure, when his mate is taken and threatened, the entire planet will hear the lion king’s roar.

Adorable!

So fantastic and enjoyable. I loved this pair. The interactions between them were enough to make me laugh 😆 out loud.

Sexy, witty and funny, this series just keeps getting better and better. Alyx is a lion shifter and King of the planet Aurora, he needs to find a mate, his Queen, before his birthday or a new king will take his place. He calls Gerri to help match him to his mate but has to apologize first since he told her he could find his own mate without help, which was an epic failure. Gerri and her new assistant, Bella, arrive to help the stubborn King find his Queen. Bella has curves in abundance and has learned to love herself and demands any man she is seeing to do the same. She goes with Gerri on what should be an awesome adventure to the shifter planet. She meets Alyx and is immediately captivated by him and visa versa. Alyx pretends to be a normal guy, not the King, so Bella can get to know him for himself and not rely on preconceived notions on royalty to color her thoughts about him. Their romance in Hot and Alyx goes from a completely stubborn 100% alpha male with no compromise to a sweet, super romantic alpha male while around Bella, but there is a threat to Bella in the castle, a woman who thinks she should be Queen and needs Bella out of the picture to do so. I love this series and can't wait for Bella's best friend Charlotte's story!! Keep them coming!

Milly doesn't disappoint!!! If you have not read Books 1`-5 in the PDA series
That is Paranormal Dating Agency Series grab Twice the Growl which is book one and get caught up, Each book is a stand alone BUT you will understand more about shifters, Gerri, the agency and how each of the characters play off each other if you read the other books in the series.Believe me they are short read and very well worth it. I own every one and when I want a smile or want to get to have a good time with my hunny, we pull up one or two of the PDA books and read them together, They are hot as hell and pantie melting for sure. You might have some laughs in the books but you will always and I do mean ALWAYS come always dripping wet.

I was so happy to see that Bella was Gerri's new assistant and wondered when she left her all alone in the new place to unpack, You know when you tell someone to not touch something...that is the one thing they are sure to touch, OH YES. This book is literally out of this world hot. I have waited and waited for someone to explain to me where shifters have come from and Milly does in this book, I like the explanation quite well and look forward to out of this world match making from Gerri.
I am not one to talk about a book's storyline so you will not see me say much other than I was greatly impressed with the wording. I could see this world with my eyes like I was there. The castle in all it;s uniqueness. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to Book 7 in this series and more PDA.
Thanks for a great start to my weekend.

WOW I love this book series. Milly Taiden has took me to a whole new adventure and world with her Alion King. With out a doubt no one write write sex like the Smut Queen. I am always ready for the next book as soon as I read the new one. Opening up a whole world of shifters and giving them a background that I found a neat idea. Isabella and Alyx have a great non stop story and look forward to many more.

She snorted a giggle. “Have you seen Gerri? She’s going to make it her business to get that guy a woman, whether he likes it or not.” His lips pressed into a tight, thin line. “I know. She’s very hardheaded.” “Ah, don’t be angry. I’m sure whatever she does, he’s got coming. She mentioned he was a pain in the ass.” “Oh, the king is definitely a pain in the ass,” he agreed

Isabella has watch Ms. Wilder match up her 2 best friends and now working for the the Paranormal Dating Agency as her assistance takes her on a adventure she would have never believed. Who would have thought that shifter's had their own planet and she would be going to help the match maker extraordinaire. She could probably never in here wildest dreams there are Aliens but a A lion alien just may be to much...

Alyx Treyvaal the High Council demanding he get a mate has forced him into asking for help from the one woman he has told for years he doesnt need it. Now he has no choice tired of meeting woman that his lion wants nothing to do with his best friend sends out the call. Mrs Wilder can you help the King find his Queen? Or should he come to Earth and look for his self?

How can Mrs Wilder say no but she can make the stubborn man wait and worry.

Can Bella find a place she belongs?

Or will Alyx mess it all up in his attempt to make her see more than the King?

She gulped, forgetting what she was going to say momentarily when her gaze collided with a giant. Holy s***. It was Bigfoot! And Bigfoot was sexy as hell. Weren’t giants supposed to be ugly? She could tell the man was so tall she’d need a ladder to get up close and personal with his face.

Twisted Desire: Twisted Tail Pack Book 4

Ethan Lockhart had found his mate, and he wasn’t very happy about it. He didn’t want a mate—didn’t need a mate. The Fates had already messed with his life in ways that had changed everything, and none of it for the better.

But they just had to go and throw the woman of his dreams in his face—when they knew damn well, thanks to their meddling, he couldn’t claim her. Yeah—he was tired of playing their games, but somehow he would have the last laugh. All he had to do was avoid her, and her
mouthwatering scent.

Camryn Dochart was proud of the life she lived. As the owner of Cam’s diner, she works hard, but never has time to play hard. She longed for a mate. Someone to share her life with.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was great! This couple were so great to watch. She didn’t understand what he couldn’t explain. Such a different series but it goes along with the Black Paw ones.

What Can I say, I am a sucker for these shifter love stories. Everyone of them is different and you cannot help but fall in love and want your own shifter.

But what would you do if your shifter mate didn't want you, I know I would beat him upset the head until he listened. This book has you wanting to do that, but you might cry a little or maybe even laugh. But you will enjoy the ride the author takes you on.

So come enjoy the ride with me and maybe you will find your next shifter love.

This was so freaking thrilling to read! I loved every word, it is full of so many twists and turns, it kept me on the edge of my seat with the suspense and surprises! I especially liked seeing familiar characters from other of the authors work show up. That was such a treat. And did I mention how hot it is, for two people who didn’t want to have anything to do with each other, they sure did burn the house down when they got together! I can most definitely recommend buying and reading this book ASAP!

Ok so I really like the story lines of the twisted tail pack series, the issue I have is they are too short. I need more details, describe the town setting more, stop jumping the story line draw it out explain how and why the sudden change in feeling or opinions. Some of it feels forced headed into a quick wrap of everyone’s happily ever after. Also Gerri Wilder in Milly series never helps unless asked this is one of her rules, so this Gerri threw me a bit because only the first book in the series does both parties ask for a mate.

A Mate’s Bite: Sassy Mates Book 2

Mission: Don’t fall in love. After an explosive night of passion during a scenting ceremony, Karla Alves is sure she was just a one night stand for the man she’d been crushing on for years. She teased him and pleased him, and Nate hasn’t been around since. Her fear of becoming clingy kept her from risking her heart and asking for more than a few hours of skin sin.

Mission: Crack her walls. She. Is. His. Nathan Wolfe marked Karla. His mate. Deeply involved in pack politics, Nate has had to stay away. When his sister warns that Karla needs him more than he thinks, he’ll discover a bundle of secrets only his wolf can sniff out. But getting the woman he cares about to let down her guard may prove to be his undoing.

Mission: Embrace the bite With Karla’s wayward sister wreaking havoc and friends needing more of his time than ever, Nate will have to rearrange his priorities if he ever hopes to earn Karla’s trust. But will time with her be enough? Only true love and a wolf’s promise can hold together a relationship created with a bite, a scenting, and a hope for tomorrow.

His mother was too much. “Fine. Ask what you want to know then.”

“What’s going on here? I sense you and Karla aren’t where you should be for a pair ready to welcome some babies into the world.”

Wait, what? “What do you mean babies? I scented the change. Only heard one heartbeat. How did you come up with multiples?”

She sighed. “Son, you are—what do you young people call it? Oh yes, a noob. I know scents. I know babies. You’re having multiples.”

His heart stopped and he swallowed hard. “How many is multiple?”

Two or three. They’re very in sync, so it’s hard to say. But definitely more than one.”

Once again Milly Taiden does it again. Fan-freaking-tastic book. Couldn't put it down, but I had to at times.
This is yet another hot and sexy book. This one focuses on Karla and Nate. But starts off at the scenting ceremony just like "Scent of a Mate".
The pack is still having troubles, but Nate makes time for Karla. Karla has had issues with men and family all her life, and has a hard time letting him in, but boy when she does its full blown!
Karla and Nate are hot! Nate is hot sexy wolf.
Loved this story of Nate and Karla. Not sure which book is my favorite. But I know my hubby loves when I read a book by Milly Taiden!
This book will get you hot, then angry and ready to shift and tear someone apart. This author really tells a story that you get into and feel everything the characters do. When Karla's sister was confronting her, I felt Karla's guilt and rage I also felt Jordon's rage and wanted to be the one holding Kass up against the wall threatening her!!! I felt Karla's fear when they were threatened.

The only girls in the "group" that we really see in this book are Jordan and Karla. Ellie, Emma and Nicole are mentioned but not present.
Highly recommend you read and take this journey to know more about the Wolfe family and meet Karla.

I want to preface the following reviews by saying that I am not a true fan of erotica, I find that it can often get coarse and lapse into unnecessary description of the act of sex, without touching on any romance or emotional levels for the characters. I am happy to say that Taiden has managed to fully develop her rutting wolves into compassionate characters with hearts of gold. Yes, there is a lot of sex involved in both books, but you cannot help but falling in love with the Wolfe brothers, and the entire Wolfe family for that matter. We cannot forget sister, Ellie; nor mom and dad.
Normally I would segregate the reviews into two parts, but I feel that the two books compliment each other so well that they shouldn't be parted.
What begins in Scent a Mate is the story not just of a couple coming together after years of tormenting themselves; but the beginning of a family saga. The Wolfe family, and leaders of the pack, hold everyone that is dear to them, close to their hearts and their souls. Through a delightful attention to detail and character development, Taiden introduces all of the characters in what I hope will be a beautiful series, touching each member of the family. I am seeing an epic saga in my mind, and can only hope that Taiden has it within her to cover each family member; and then bring us an epic conclusion. Am I asking too much?
Yes, these are books that clearly fall into the erotica category, but unlike so many novels before that fall short in plot and story development; Taiden has blasted into the realm of dramatic story with a compliment of steamy sex scenes that...honestly, will make your panties damp. Yes, you heard that here. My own wolf better watch out tonight, he may get ravaged.
Minor issues with fact consistency and odd phrase selections, left the stories lacking the ability to earn the coveted 5 Star reviews; but without a doubt I am honored to say that both rank at a 4.5 Star level.

I couldn't wait to read this book after I read the first one. I will say that I am desperate because I want to read the rest now! I know that I won't be able to do that so I will just have to read this book again while I wait.

I thought there was some great one lines with Jordan and Aric. Karla and Nate have even more. Man I want my own wolf to take care of all my needs.

If you want a book that is full of hot passion and has some added suspense in it this is the book for have been waiting for. You will also have to see how the relationship works between these two. You have an alpha that wants what he wants and a woman who is used to coming last with her mom. Never depending on anyone. I loved this story and it makes me think about what the author has in store with the other books in this series. I just can't get enough of these shifters.

So while I am waiting and in heat with this book while waiting for the next one, you should just try it and see what it does to you!

This is Karla and Nate's story and is again on the predictable side. While that doesn't mean it isn't a great story it does make it harder to give it a 5 star rating. The characters are strong and the stories are all interrelated but that doesn't mean that they shouldn't all be a little unpredictable. While each of these young women are all different they are all portrayed as slightly damaged in some way by pasted tragedy or relationships, but that doesn't mean there could be more variance in their actual stories.

Each of them seems to be fighting their own inner villains and are unable to comment, which with the shifter's is something that must happen for them to be together and content. Unfortunately, it's only their own stubborn need to not commit that is the stumbling block and after a while that is just not enough to keep the reader invested. The reader needs the emotional investment to make it the 5 star rating it should be.

Ms. Taiden needs to feed our inner child to mate this come up to it's full 5 star potential. We like this but we want more. In this case more would be better.
