Kiss My Asteroid: Paranormal Dating Agency #14

Moving on to a new planet with Gerri. Don’t ask me how, but it seems like everyone who is anyone, knows Gerri!

Ivy Grimaldi can’t stand change. Ever. But change is something she’s had to deal with a lot lately. Like when her cousin Cassandra moved away to start a new life, baby and all. That all changes when Gerri Wilder shows up at her door with a letter from her cousin. Cassie wants her to come visit. Sure, why not? There’s just one problem. Cassie lives on another planet. A far-the-heck-away planet, with her hotter than hell shifter mate.

Vander Kasval, King of the shifter warrior planet Galaxa, has his own problems with change. A lead by example kind of a king, he’s between a rock and a hard place. He needs to find a mate to help put an end to a brewing civil war. None of this would be happening if not for a plague affecting only the females of his planet. His warriors and the men of the Palladian Capitol are ready to riot. Vander reluctantly agrees to send for matchmaker, Gerri Wilder. If she can find a match for him and his men, then his world might be saved.

Ivy agrees to go, if only to make sure Cassie’s okay. Oh, alright, and to maybe find an intergalactic hookup for herself in the process. In a planet full of big, bad, sexy shifters, anything’s possible, right? Ivy’s in for the time of her life in a planet of unimaginable beauty and dangers she had no idea existed. But Ivy isn’t one to sit idly by and let something happen. With two new friends, they’re about to take Galaxa by storm.

In order to see her favorite cousin in person to make sure she was truly happy with her abrupt choice to leave the planet, Ivy agrees to travel with Gerri Wilder to visit the strange new planet her cousin now calls home. Along with two other woman, Ivy can't believe how beautiful the sexy mancandy is on the planet and it's not a hardship at all to visit. Gerri sets up a special surprise communication with a sexy male program for Ivy but the true surprise is when they travel to the sister planet, Galaxa and Ivy runs into her sexy simulation in the flesh. Vander is the King of Galaxa and hasn't been able to get Ivy out of his head since their communication and suddenly she is there within his reach, an opportunity he will not waste since he knows she is meant to be his. Galaxa's women have been dying and they need women for the men on the planet, the people are planning mutiny and Vander is trying to find the source of the sickness while trying to stop the dangerous uprising. While still in the PDA series, this felt fresh. You get to see old characters and we are introduced to a bunch of new characters as well. I'm excited to read what comes next in the Galaxa Warriors of the PDA series!!!

I don't know how she keeps doing it,but again Milly has made me digest one of her books in a single sitting. I loved this book!!!! She has taken a topic that has been done before and made it her own but also keeps it original without reapting herself and keeping you on the edge of your seat. I am an avid reader and have found myself skipping whole paragraphs in book's because the writing is so predictable. But not with Ms. Tilden's books, I devoured every word and was left wanting more. I don't know how she keeps doing it. I know Riley and Henley's story is in you please hurry up and get them out so I can place my pre-order.

LOVE! Gerri is at it again! This time she takes three women with her first to Aurora then on to Galaxa. Women who miss their friends and are determined to find out where they are and what happened to them. Oh Gerri is not one to let them get away. She had plans for them, she knows where they belong. (snicker)
Vander is the Galaxa King and must find a mate, only he thinks that Gerri can find mates for his warriors but not him. He doesn't know Gerri well. Ivy is sassy and a bit of a smart a$$. Vander and Ivy, ummm let's just say that they have an unconventional first meeting and have a bit of a good time. Now, without giving spoilers here, they just have to make sure they can stay together. Yup, a bit of a mystery and betrayal is involved. Keep in mind also that there are two other women with Gerri. Yeah, I stayed on the edge of my chair when reading this. Bring on the next one!

Ivy Grimaldi is just over it, in more ways then one. She is feeling incomplete but is ready to see the on!y person she loves her cousin. She has to see her in the flesh. What she never expected was on him. Ivy has had her fun, (kinky computer sex) but it's time for an escape. Gerri Wilder is at it again. But Ivy will find the matchmaker always pairs her couples!! Vander Kasval, is in need of a mate. His only option is Gerri. He is a huge man with unbelievable appetites. His beast is on the edge, his people realize its only a matter of time. What's more is that the females are being targeted, and his enemy is closing in and his newly found mate has been marked. Can Vander save his mate and future. If you love paranormal dating agency you won't be disappointed. Milly finds new and innovative ways to bring her alpha males to life, the heroines are feisty, spicy and full of inner sex goddesses. As with all of Milly PDA, there are situations that have you on the edge of your seat, after 14 books its just as delicious as the first. With new planets and galaxies, its definitely skies the limit for Milly Taiden. She is in a category all by herself. This is one that shouldn't be missed.

Piece of Tail: Paranormal Dating Agency Book 13

A female Prowl Leader? Unthinkable. It’s what Becca Duran has dealt with since the sudden, tragic death of her brother. Now, the leopard council demands she mates an alpha, whether she loves him or not. Given no choice, Becca takes a chance on Gerri Wilder’s PDA. It should be simple. Get a match and move on. Except, it’s not. It’s hard (thick and hard) with large muscles and a panty-wetting smile.

Jaylon Ross has thirty days to find a mate to help solidify his pack or face the consequences of an unhappy council. Forcing his hand, he makes an appointment with Gerri for help, but stumbles into the answer to his prayers in the heart of Manhattan. A sexy, curvy, sarcastic feline he dreams of stroking and wants to hear purr.

The two collide and more than instant sparks ignite with an attraction neither can ignore. Of course, nothing is as easy as it seems. Becca’s past and Jaylon’s present throw a monkey wrench into what should be so simple. Now they fight to find a way to stay together. Oh, and alive

Piece of Tail is the thirteenth standalone novel in the Paranormal Dating Agency series by Milly Taiden. In this book Becca Durran is the Prowl Leader of a leap of leopard shifters who needs to find someone to marry. Jaylon Ross is the Alpha of a pack of wolf shifters and needs to find a mate. Both are told by their respective councils that it doesn't matter if they marry for love or not. So both turn to a dating agency to solve their problems.

I do like that Becca is a little chubby. Not overweight but at least not one of the many skinny protagonists you find in novels like this. I also like that Jaylon is more than accepting of something terrible that happened in her past. It was at that moment I thought of him as a really good guy and not merely a good romantic lead.

The book does a good job at showing the pair falling in love. It is both cute and more than a little erotic. I actually hated when the plot showed its ugly little head because I wouldn't have minded a book full of Becca and Jaylon being cute with each other.

The one problem I had was with the antagonist that shows up around half-way through the book. The Leopard Council changes their tune really quickly about an old ruling so something that should have been a bigger deal, isn't. But at least he lasts as a villain much longer than I thought he would.

I would recommend Piece of Tail for those who have body issues and want to find a fictional boyfriend to take away their problems.

Becca and Jaylon both leaders of their Leap and pack were both informed that they must find mates. That's where Gerri comes in. Both had a list of characteristics that they wanted in a mate but Gerri gave them what they needed. In a seemingly accidental meeting both found their one true mate. But all we're not happy with their union. This book has a dirty talking Alpha who isn't afraid to take what's his and a fierce and fiesty heroine who was strong enough to let him. There is also violence, murder, mystery, betrayal, second chances, and more. Milly Taiden has done it again!! Read with caution. This series is highly addictive. Can't wait to read the next book!!!

My heart broke for Becca so much loss and betrayal in her life that finding Jaylon seems to good to be true.....Jaylon makes a deal to find a mate in 30 days he contacts Gerri for help to satisfy his pack, never expecting to run into his mate on his own in the city or that she was also there to meet Gerri Wilder to appease her prime and find a mate...

Success was within Anna Sullivan’s grasp. But one bad joke and one dead world leader later, and she’s playing shady Vegas bars with junkies in her closet sized dressing room.

He doesn’t understand half of what she says, but she’s a spitfire and those curves and her smile are making him question everything he thinks he knows about women. He wants her and will do anything to keep her.

There are forces that don’t want the king and his new mate together. Anna and Rath have to fight unexpected enemies while figuring out if they have a future together. Rath may not understand her humor, but he knows she wants him and he can’t stand the thought of losing her. Can Rath protect her and get her to realize a relationship between won’t mean the end of her goals?

I struggled with this one. Neither MC was noteworthy or particularly memorable. And that’s really a shame. I have enjoyed all the previous books in this series, but now find myself wondering about the ones that I haven’t yet read.

What is happening to Milly Taiden?  As I stated in my last review of her work, if you had asked me seven months ago about anything written by this author I would have said to you that she is a consistent powerhouse. I would have enthusiastically declared her to be the queen of all things paranormally romantic and sexy. I would have further stated that her stories almost never disappoint, are wildly free and unapologetically alpha filled, full of beautiful story landscapes, with her Paranormal Dating Agency (PDA) books at the top of this wonder! However, recently her books have been devoid of the emotionally intelligent, emotionally rich, witty and quirky, action packed adventures I have come to love and expect from her. And sadly this one “Throw in the Growl”, the latest addition to her PDA universe is no exception to this new and disappointing rule.

After reading her earlier sci-fi themed PDA installments of yummy Galaxa Warriors and grumbly, angst filled alpha hotties from planet Aurora, I was excited for a new interplanetary adventure. Instead what I found was, in all honesty, downright horrible. As here within the story of King Rath of the Salusain Kingdom upon the planet Corona Haize, and Anna, a sarcastic, quip filled stand-up comedian looking for a way to revive her career after a misstep on stage turns her into a comedic pariah. A situation her manager Clint hopes to rectify via a unique proposal. A plan that has her utilizing the services of Gerri Wilder, flying off to a new far away world, and dating an alien (and perhaps falling in love) all for the sake of material for her show. Is a tale full of tired and overused stereotypes reminiscent of outdated Gomer Pyle gags and not a Taiden book.

So disappointing was this installment to me that I am not even going to include the normal story synopsis I typically include within my reviews. As the characters contained are so confusing and cringe worthy I have to wonder if this installment was written by a ghost writer. A thought I have had for the last few books published under this author’s name. 

Worse yet, this was another installment filled to bursting with typos and sentence structure issues. And what is with the capital A’s in the middle of words throughout? There were so many of them I was left thinking they were intentional, and if so, if this was perhaps some odd way of incorporating, Anna-isms, throughout to drive home the fact she is a comedian. Well if so, it missed big time and was more distracting than endearing. And on the reverse side of this typeset coin, if these actually were mistakes, well then holy hell why was it published in such a state?!?

After this installment I am not sure what to think? I normally love books by this author, but this book bordered on offensive with its typecast “loveable dunce” and was just plain silly. A far cry from the normally sexy and more sophisticated tales I have enjoyed from her in the past. In the end this one is a hard, hard pass for me and astonishingly almost ended up in my DNF file, something that has never before happened with one of Taiden’s books.

Rath and Anna are thrown together by the force that is Gerri Wilder.
But for very different purposes.

Anna is a comedienne.
Anna needs to revamp her career.
Anna sees this as an opportunity to gather new material.

Rath is an impetuous and impulsive ruler.
Rath acts before he thinks.
Rath wants to be taken serious as a leader.

When the two meet Sparks fly but not romantically, more like verbally.
There's definitely a culture clash, somewhat of a language barrier, but luckily Rath has his own translator.

There were some funny moments in this books, but not really enough to make me like it. I found both of the MCs to be just ridiculous. Rath constantly acted without thinking, acceptable for a teenage MC but not for someone who is a King and trying to impress his potential mate. Honestly I had trouble thinking of him as an actual adult most of the time. Anna is a comedian looking to reboot her career. But I found her rather bland as a character. Even the moments of "drama" were either really over the top or resolved way too quickly. I never felt the "love" between these two. There was lust at times, but even then it seemed like they just acted without thinking of consequences.

Do you know what an “ear worm” is? It’s that piece of music that just sticks in your head long after the music has stopped. A famous ear worm is that Disney song about the size of the world! The chorus to that just keeps playing in your head.

Wednesday I had a Dr’s appointment at the VA. While driving down there, an old song from the 70’s came one. First I started singing the chorus then I started hearing it repeatedly in my head! 😱 It took hours to get that song off my mind!

Oh, My Roared: Paranormal Dating Agency #12

Francesca Virgata wants a mate. She longs for the perfect kind of love her parents had. There’s only one problem, she has zero prospects. Thankfully, she’s heard of Gerri Wilder who promises to make all her mating dreams come true.

Theo and Marcus are best friends and share everything, even women. So when they both fall for Francesca, it’s only natural they have a friendly competition over who can get the girl. After some thought, and a hot little interlude, they realize she shouldn’t choose one over the other, they should work together to make the perfect triad. A lion, a tiger and a bear, oh my!

There has been talk of abuse in Francesca’s pride and she won’t tolerate it. She’ll fight tooth and claw to ensure all members are safe. But when her brother turns on her, who will protect her? Theo and Marcus will do anything for her, but it might be easier to let them both go than to choose only one of the men she’s come to love.

Ashley has it all. But all she really wants is to be valued as a strong, powerful business woman. The problem is, her board of directors is full of crotchety old men that hate the idea of a single woman being their CEO. With the suggestion- forceful assistance -of her mother, she gets in touch with Gerri Wilder who’s supposed to fix her personal life. Good luck with that one.

Flare and Blaze run a competitive pharmaceutical company. But they need to find their mate in order to cement their leadership roles. When they meet firecracker Ashley, they know she’s the woman for them. She’s feisty, sweet and can handle two strong males all by herself. Not to mention her curvy body and beautiful smile are making it hard for them to concentrate on their job.

It’s not long until Ashley realizes Flare and Blaze are a bigger problem than her board of directors. They’re her direct competitors. If that’s not enough, someone’s out to get them and her out of the way. It’s a fight for love and survival. Will she find a way to balance romance and a career or will her life go up in smoke?

She needs that mate urgently before the lions in her pride think she’s going to hand the reins over to one of them and let them tell her what to do. Not in this lifetime. When a wolf saves her hide, there’s more than just gratitude sparking between them.

Kasen Steel’s tired of women throwing themselves at him. As alpha of his pack, he can have any woman he wants. Problem is, he doesn’t want any of them. He wants a chase. He wants someone who isn’t taken in with his position. A chance meeting with a hot as hell lioness makes him want a close encounter of the naked kind with her. Wait, he’s already naked.

Kasen knows Andi’s perfect for him. She’s already making him crazy by denying their attraction and the fact she’s his mate. The hunt is on. Unfortunately for him, proving to Andi they’re right for each other is just one of the problems facing this alpha. Keeping her alive, when someone wants her dead, is another. But Kasen isn’t going to sit by and let anyone harm her. Now that he’s found his smart-assy mate, he isn’t letting go. Whether she likes it or not.

Final Thoughts

When you finish one book series, have you ever just sat back and struggled to decide what to read next? I found myself in that situation recently and started thinking about “Go To” series.

Paranormal – If I just want a paranormal series, not worrying about anything magical, I’m likely to pull out Heather Long’s Wolves of Willow Bend series. Lots of intrigue, romance and action. For the most part, the heat level is acceptable without straying into areas I’d rather not have my boss know about.

Magical Paranormal – This is where I would put Coreene Callahan’s Dragonfury series. Each of the guys has a different magical gift that they use daily in their battles. Again, clean enough for work.

Paranormal Domestic Discipline – Anything, and I do mean anything by Delta James will work here. I love reading these or listening to them! Not safe for work.

Not Safe For Work Emily Tilton tops my list in this department. She has a number of different series going, plus ones that seem to be complete. Among these are three that echo each other.

So there you have it, my “Go To” series. Sorry this is late getting out!

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

In the spirit of the season what better way to enjoy it than reading a Christmas story. But this is no ordinary Christmas story. This holiday short story involves hot alpha males and their strong sensual women who make them crazy. Scrooge Me Hard by Milly Taiden gives us a peek back at the other couples that Gerri Wilder of the Paranormal Dating Agency has help to put together in the past and also gives us a beautiful Christmas tale of love lost and found again with Aurelis and Reed’s story.

Aurelis has finally found her niche as a baker and has a somewhat thriving shop in town. However, she is haunted by the past, by a man who swept her away so many Christmases ago, her true mate. Reed has been running since he left town years ago. Coming back to town a changed man, he’s ready to claim his mate once again if she’ll let in.

In the spirit of the season can Reed help Aurelis change her mind? Can he make her see that he was wrong and wants another chance? Will Aurelis forgive Reed and give their love another try?

Read this short story to find out. It’s just as exciting as Ms. Taiden’s other books except with a Christmasy twist! Filled with beautifully created characters and a plot that twists and turns. It will keep you on the edge with each passing page until the very end. This is one to have in your library to enjoy every Christmas season.

Ms. Claus and Scrooge meet, realize they're mates, fall in love, get married, and then she gets blindsided by all the Scrooginess that oozes from her mate. Okay, so Aurelis, aka Auri, isn't really Ms. Clause, but she adores the Christmas season. Reed, really isn't Scrooge either, well on second thought, he does give off a heavily influenced Scrooge vibe. But he does have his reasons for his Bah Humbug attitude. Unfortunately, he never shared those reasons with Auri during their time together, nor did he share them with her at any point after their wedding, until she brings up spending Christmas with her family and he tells her he hates Christmas. *insert all of our gasps here* So Auri, protecting herself and hoping it'll be the push Reed needs, leaves him. Now we all have the sads because it backfired and five years later, they're still mated/married, but it's more of a technicality because there's been no peep from Reed in all that time.

Of course, it's time Reed makes an appearance and he does. He's not alone though. He has a mini-me, a little Reed replica that's around 5 years old. Oh man, wouldn't that be devastating to Auri? Especially considering part of her issue with him was he didn't want kids, yet he knew she did. You really feel the urge to reach through the book and throat punch him. But, thank goodness, he realizes how it looks and quickly lets Auri know that the little boy is his brother. Phew, crisis averted, Reed can live.

But it's a small world after all *there's an earworm for you LOL* because Geri, yes, that Geri, the matchmaking queen, knows Auri and has known Reed for years as her husband was Reed's mentor when he was younger. *whispers - Reed really needed a positive male role model in his life.*

Yes, I was fully onboard Team Auri and ready to dislike Reed...a lot. That changed once I got to know Reed's reasons. Oh the pain and heartache I felt for his history. His father, I refuse to call him Dad as he didn't deserve that title, was not a good man. He went from marriage to divorce to marriage to divorce, rinse and repeat. Reed doesn't have happy Christmas memories and now that his father has passed, he'll never get that closure that he needs. Yet, he can get it in other ways. He's building a solid relationship with his little brother, Gavin. Granted, Reed is more like a father figure to Gavin than an older brother, seeing as there's like thirty years age difference between them. Also, he can come clean with Auri and share his past with her, maybe recapture what they once had and move forward, together. He can show Auri what he's built in those five years, something that is from the heart and essentially encompasses both of the reasons Auri left him. *whistles innocently* Nope, that's all I'm saying on that. My lips are sealed because it's so much more awe inspiring to read it after you've fallen for the characters.

So where has Reed been for five years? Why did it take him so long to come back for Auri? Is he still all full of the humbug? Or is he now filled with joy for the holidays after essentially getting some slaps upside the head from the proverbial ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future? Can he convince Auri that he's changed, that he thought of her every day, missed her unbearably, and wanted to return to her sooner?

I do recommend reading this series in order as previous couples are mentioned in this story and because the series is full of great characters, stories, and HEAs. So off to one-click land for you. After you click all of the books, this one is #9.5 (book #10, Barefoot and Pregnant is now available for pre-order), you can rest your exhausted finger and get comfy with all the books you're about to fall in love with. Happy reading!

Short and sexy!! This is NOT a standalone! Auri owns a bakery and has become very successful. She's independent, curvy and proud of everything she's accomplished. It's nearly Christmas, one of her favorite times of the year, she should be happy with her life except for one problem... Reed Stone, her mate and husband who she hasn't seen or heard from in five years. Reed comes from money and has a successful business of his own, when he met Auri, he knew right away that she belonged to him. Their chemistry is off the charts and within a week, they are mated and married. Auri wants to start a family right away and Reed shuts her down immediately and leaves. Now Reed is back and determined to win Auri back and show her that he's a changed man. Five years is a long time, can he convince her that they're worth it? This book was great! We got to see the a little bit of what's been going on with the couples (and threesomes) in the previous PDA books and get a couple of hints on who might be next 🙂

In the Roar: Paranormal Dating Agency #9

She raised her brows high. “If you get me a man who can make my knees buckle, I will skinny dip in the local pond.”
Gerri shook her head. “Don’t make promises you will hate keeping later.”

Alivia Vela is a big girl tired of dating. She’s at the point she’s going to find a frozen pop and get artificially inseminated. Or she would, until big, growly and oh, so sexy Karel shows up, saves the day and gives her a night she won’t soon forget. That, mouth…that tongue. Oh my.

Karel Yaghar needs a mate faster than he can growl the word MINE. He didn’t expect to meet the perfect woman for him and his jaguar only moments after arriving on earth. Now all Karel needs is for her to come with him to another planet. That should go over well. If she doesn’t decide he’s crazy instead, which is highly likely.

Liv is a true born hard-head, she’s gonna need more than pink sand to prove she’s on another planet. Where are the flying saucers? Then there’s the issue of convincing herself she’s not falling for the big kitty. If only her ovaries weren’t in agreement with her brain that Karel should be her future baby daddy, she might find the will to stay away from his sexiness. While she tries to figure that out, she and Karel will have to work together to take down an unexpected threat.

The Reviews!

Karel and Liv are a fantastic couple. Gerri Wilder is something you just have to experience to believe! I’m looking forward to reading more of her exploits.

Smoking hot read!!! Karel needs a mate ASAP, his mother is dying and wants to see him mate before she goes. He begs Gerri to help him find his mate and decides to go to her rather then wait for her to come to Nova Aurora. Once on Earth, Karel immediately meets Liv and knows he has found his mate. Liv is a curvy woman who loves herself but has always been treated like she is less just because she is bigger. She wants to find a man who will love her and give her the children she desperately wants but has had such terrible luck with men, she's willing to be artificially inseminated to get pregnant. A chance meeting with Gerri leads to meeting Karel and sparks don't just fly, they explode. Karel convinces Liv to go to Nova Aurora with him to meet his dying mother and to stay with him to give him a chance to show her that they are meant to be together. Things aren't all what they seem as Liv helps to uncover a murderous plot being carried out by a traitor from the castle. The Paranormal Dating Agency series is one of the best series out there!! They are sexy, funny, and who doesn't love a shifter who loves curvy women?! I can't wait to read Cassie's story and see who Gerri pairs her up with!

~ 4.5 In the Roar Stars ~

Note: All the books in this series are quick reads with very little plot and an insta-match. They are great if your looking for a little steam and some sexy shifters for an afternoon break.

This PDA series has become one of my favorites that I look forward too. I need something every now and then that does not have a deep plot, that I can just sit back enjoy the short and sweet times.

Karel and Alivia where great together. I really enjoyed that Karel did not pressure Alivia, giving her the time she needed to let her head catch up with her heart. I also love that we got to return to alien plant that the shifters live on. This one was a little different then the previous PDA books in that Karel did not do anything stupid to get his women upset with him. We also got a little action, trickery, and mystery with our plot in that a bad guy is trying to hurt a previous couple. Gerri is still as fun as every with her matchmaking skills and I can’t forget the hot and steamy sex… oh boy!

The only thing that I am getting a little tired of is the BBW angle. Yes, I know this is a BBW series. It just seems that the author is putting to much emphasis on how the heroine's look and how they are mistreated over the years because of it. I don’t mind reading stories with heroine's like this, but the emphasis is getting to over powering and I’m starting to not like how much her body image is talked about. I do love the possessiveness of the hero’s and how they love their full-figured woman.

In the Roar was a fun read from begging to end. I feel in love from the first to the last page and can’t wait for the next installment to hit the bookstores.

Well hot damn, what can I say? This books was absolutely fantastic!

We taken on a journey as a shifter instantly connects with a human, his mate. The human gets taken to a alien planet to interact with his world and from there so much happens. After being belittled by other humans for her weight and looks she expects everyone to be like that, shifters included but she soon realises they’re not.

Reading about the torment the main character gets for the way she looks and her weight is heartbreaking but she loves how she looks and it’s absolutely beautiful.

I haven’t read many paranormal books but it’s always a treat when I do especially with this one. A Jaguar shifter is definitely new for me, I loved how fiercely protective shifters are of their mates. It’s been fun reading this novella. It’s my first book from this author and I’m glad I chose this book.
