Final Thoughts

The Twisted Tail Pack series is at an end for now. This led to me considering what series to tackle next. Yes, I could have tackled another series set either in the Paranormal Dating Agency world or the Sassy Mates world. Doing that would have been a bit of an overkill.

Then a book popped up on my screen, Fury of Conviction by Coreene Callahan. Oh My! A few years ago, I’d read the original Dragonfury series and enjoyed it. However, I always wondered about the other members of the pack and did they ever meet their mates. Fury of Conviction is the second novella in a spin-off series. The first one featured Ivar. This one features Hamersveld. Wow!

Now, to be fair there is also a second series about the Scottish pack. In searching for information about the books, I discovered that Coreene is returning to the original pack!!! So, while I wait (impatiently), I want to review as many of the previous ones as possible!

Twisted Lies: Twisted Tail Pack Book 6

Mikah Dawson has a problem with lies, but she just can’t seem to help herself. Nearly every word out of her mouth is a lie. Not because she doesn’t know how to tell the truth, she does. But the little white lies keep the walls up around her heart and her past from spilling into her present.

Jason Black heads off in search of his mate after he receives a not so subtle hint from Gerri Wilder. What he finds is the hottest, most alluring woman he’s ever set his sights on. The one who was made for him, and him alone. Too bad she hates him from the moment she bumps into him.

… Or does she?

Finally Thoughts

As COVID-19 cases are spiking again, do everything you can to be safe. The numbers here in Florida are appalling. From what I have read, over 90% are people who are unvaccinated. The ones who are vaccinated are experiencing milder symptoms.

At this point in time, anyone older than 12 years old is eligible to receive the vaccine. Please, if you haven’t already been vaccinated, take a look at your family and ask yourself if you really want to jeopardize their health?

Twisted Fate: Twisted Tail Pack Book 5

Fates collide when they are tricked into a meeting by the infamous Gerri Wilder, owner of The Paranormal Dating Agency. Can they overcome their differences, or are they destined to destroy one another.

Ruby Jean St. James lives her life by the carefully crafted rules she created for herself. Do your job, keep your head down, and your emotions in check at all times. She works hard keeping her act together and avoiding certain people. Bad things tend to happen to those around her when she loses control.

Liam Olsen was blessed by the Gods in more ways than one. An ancient majik slumbers deep within him, waiting for the chance to wreak havoc on the one who dares to awaken the beast. More powerful than an ordinary shifter, Liam finds that the dark side of him knows no bounds.

Oh yeah! This was so enjoyable and satisfying. I could barely keep from laughing 😂 while reading this book. Gerri has definitely done it again. This pairing is definitely one for the books!

I absolutely love this series. This is Liam and Ruby story. Ruby Jean has been through so much it has caused her to lose control over the magic inside. When Gerri Wilder steps in well let's just say fate will not be denied. Liam is having issues that he doesn't understand. When he gets sent to see the neighboring alpha at the diner things come into focus. Ruby Jean kills everyone who gets to close she must run to save her mate.

Wolf shifter Ruby Jean is a little envious of her newly mated friends and both longing for and fearing finding hers because of her prior history.

Liam, a member of the Black Paw Pack is not sure what was wrong with him. His Alpha, Rafe saw the problem and sends him to the Twisted Tail Pack with a fake message.

On seeing r stranger, Ruby Jean afraid of a repeat of her past leaves her mate and pack, going on the run. Liam is angry at those who have upset his mate, before setting off to find her. There are a few minor problems to solve before the ends well.

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!

Reviewed in the United States on March 16, 2019
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.

Book Reviews from Last Week

Twinkle, Twinkle, Sassy Little Star by Julia Mills

These two are such a wonderful couple. Star still believes that she is the reason her entire pack was wiped out. Grey still grieves the disappearance of his brother. Neither one knew just how connected the two incidents actually were!

Fire Maidens Greece by Anna Lowe

Another wonderful book in this series. I absolutely love how the great descriptions allow you to picture the setting in your mind. Even better are the characters created, this couple are wonderful together. Well written, yet with flaws that make them come alive for you, I’m dying to read the next one now!

Nearly Twisted by Melanie James

Fabulous! This pairing is great. A little quick with the “insta-love” but still enjoyable nonetheless. Nice job with this continuation of the Twisted Tail Pack

Curves ‘Em Right by Milly Taiden

A BBW in search of love + two sexy wolf shifters ready to claim her as their mate = Sizzling Ménage Romance

Breaking Sass by C. D. Gorri

What happens when a sassy Dire Wolf, with a penchant for breaking rules, and a Lion, who’s in love with the law, clash? She’s a sassy Dire Wolf with a fondness for speed, and he’s a Lion who knows how to lay down the law. Get ready for fireworks when these two dominant personalities clash.

Closing Thoughts

It’s been a bit “wet” around my house. At this point, all of Florida is still on alert about TS Elsa. I’m sure by now, everyone has started running around like a chicken without it’s head trying to get ready for the storm. It usually makes me laugh to see what gets snatched up as emergency supplies.

Thursday night we decided that given my husband is on oxygen therapy, that getting a small generator would be a good idea. We checked the wattage needed for just a few appliances and determined what size to get. Friday morning we were waiting at Harbor Freight for them to open. At that point in time, there was a good number of generators available.

I had to return to the store that afternoon to pick something else up. Almost all of those generators were gone. I wonder how many people will try to return them if the storm doesn’t actually hit our area?

That’s it for this week. Keep dry and keep reading! ‘Til next week!

Bearly Twisted: Twisted Tail Pack Book 2

Bailey Jones is quite content living the big city life she’d always dreamed of, or so she thought. When a weekend road trip with Gerri Wilder turns out to be an elaborate setup, Bailey has to decide between her one true mate and the life she’d worked hard at building. Can she say goodbye to everyone and everything for a shot at true love?
Gavin Neely was tired of being a loner. With the help of a little ancient majik, he concealed his true nature from the wolf pack that could offer him the life he had always wanted. All that was about to change when he caught the exotic scent of his true mate. Will the wolves he’s been hiding among turn on him, or accept him for who he really is?

Fabulous! This pairing is great. A little quick with the “insta-love” but still enjoyable nonetheless. Nice job with this continuation of the Twisted Tail Pack.

Just don't think there is enough time to express how much I have loved this book. The more I read these short stories I believe more and more in love at first site. Melanie gives us two great characters that don't know what they truly have until they almost lose it.

This book made me laugh a lot, and even cry. But those really are the books I love the most. Also thought I was going to have to yell at Mel, but we got through and she earned my forgiveness.

You will truly enjoy this book, and maybe one day find that true love of your own.

Reviewed in the United States on April 27, 2021
I'm gonna continue reading this series. I don't like leaving reviews when I feel like it's less than 4 stars, but I realized a 3 star rating wasn't bad, let's say I'd been thinking to negatively about how that looked and always wanted to be honest in review;( at the same time, being a creative person in the arts, writing isn't my dominant art, but I do writing creativity for free, so I decided if I don't like some one else's writing, I though I would just not comment, but that's changed recently when I found myself giving books higher rates reviews than they deserved because it took me a bit to realize , like I already mentioned , 3 stars isn't a bad review)..
So that said yes this was a good read, I'd recommend it, because although it wasn't the best, ive read so many OF book as it's my top 3 my fav genes to read, I've read three times as many that were so much worse it's sad, so this book deserves a thumb up recommendation to go ahead and read I'd your a PNR can set read

Fire Maidens #7: Venice by Anna Lowe

Ten years ago, lion shifter Tony Pelligrini was forced to flee Venice after being framed for a murder he didn’t commit. But now, a mysterious force is drawing him back. Is it the feeling of a ticking time bomb only he can defuse? Or is it the call of destiny, promising true love?

His Twisted Tail by Melanie James

This was good! I can’t say I remember reading anything else by this author, but I will definitely change that! This was a worthy entry into the Paranormal Dating Agency world.

Her Purrfect Match by Milly Taiden

I love how these stories are all stand alone, but yet they easily lead from one to another. The couples are engaging and delightful. This is rapidly becoming one of my “Go To” series.

Shake That Sass by C. D. Gorri

He’s an Alpha looking for a home. She’s an outsider with no one to call her own. Can they find what they’re searching for in each other?

His Twisted Tail: Twisted Tail Pack Book 1

Calder Lorenson inherits one hell of a mess when he’s thrust into the limelight to fill the role of Alpha at Twisted Tail Pack. With treachery in the ranks, Calder quickly finds himself in over his head. If that wasn’t enough to deal with, pack law decrees that he must be mated. 

With no time to spare, Calder does the only thing he can think of—asks for a little help from a famous matchmaker, Gerri Wilder. Will Gerri be able to locate his mate before the looming deadline? Or will Calder have to face the consequences set by pack law?

This was good!

I can’t say I remember reading anything else by this author, but I will definitely change that! This was a worthy entry into the Paranormal Dating Agency world.

4 stars

This was a very enjoyable story and works well, regardless of its short length. This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it well enough I'll probably try more of her work in the future.

Daisy is an emergency room doctor that works a lot and has next to no life outside of work. Daisy is a BBW and had men try to shame her for her size so she stopped dating and buried herself in her work.

Calder is an Alpha werewolf that was recently put in charge of the Twisted Tail pack. The pack had a really bad Alpha for a long time so Calder is dealing with a lot of rebuilding (in a lot of different ways). Unfortunately, some of the holdovers from the old regime are determine to get Calder out and since they're too weak to challenge him, they find a law that says an Alpha has to have a mate within 30 days of taking the post, in an attempt to get him out.

Daisy is just starting a 2 week vacation when she runs into Gerri. They end up having coffee together and hitting it off. Although she's nervous about it, Daisy agrees to meet a shifter through Gerri's dating service. Calder learns of Gerri from a friend and contacts her for help in finding his mate in time to meet the deadline. Gerri arranges for Calder and Daisy to meet and things go well and move very quickly. There's a bit of an issue towards the end but it's dealt with quickly and the story ends with Calder and Daisy together and heading towards a HEA.

This was a very short story but it was still very enjoyable...you just have to keep in mind that it will be over quickly so not to expect a complex plot. Daisy was a good heroine and I liked how despite her nervousness, she took the chance on Calder. Calder was great...typical shifter that finds his mate and is automatically sweet and loving and possessive. Overall, I liked the characters and the story very much and would recommend it. 🙂

Here I am going back and rereading some books and making sure I have reviews up. To do this one must really love a book to go back and read it again. But how can anyone find fault in a Gerri Wilder book. That woman is a gem.

The mates she paired up in this book were perfect. They seem to fit together perfectly. I love how Daisy took a leap of faith and trust Gerri and gave in to the idea of having a mate.

I love that we get to learn what is happening at twisted tail and I can see the excitement is going to be in buckets in this books and any more that may come along.
