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.

Milly Taiden struck gold showcasing Geri Wilder's matchmaking talents! This time pairing a hot, sexy alpha wolf with an alpha leopard as his fated mate! But nothing is ever that easy when forgotten secrets from the past rise up to complicate things! As usual, once I pick up a book by this amazing author I have to keep snacks and drinks close by because I know I won't be putting it down until the conclusion! Perfectly formed characters set forth down attention grabbing storylines, I feel I just can't enough! Every story has left me smiling and happy! And by the way, that scene with Geri at the end?

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!!!

The sparks fly and nothing is simple for these two but they wont give up without a fight... I loved this book ...

This prequel to the Fated Legacy Series is a bridge between Jean-Michel and Darby's and friends' stories and their children. Jean-Michel and Darby's love story is one for the ages, and their chemistry is still off the charts hot. In 2028, they have been mated 10 years with three children, and are still very much in love. In 2038, their 20th anniversary year, their love is renewed, and they have added two more sons. In 2048, Jean-Michel is 50, and his son Jean-Edouard is poised to take over the pack of New Orleans, and is ready to claim his fated mate.
Delta James' books are entertaining always, and I am particularly fond of her paranormal stories. This offshoot of one of my favorite series of hers is sure to be spectacular, and I cannot wait for the next!

Normally Delta James books, fated mate and corked series have me shaking my head, some I skip much off. But nonetheless I’m vested in her characters which are all amazing. Sometimes she gets carried away with the whole alpha male thing and it is a bit abusive and completely unrealistic but I must say this new series so far is the BEST! Ok I cried my ass off Darby and Jean Michael have always been one of her best couples and to think off them not dieing at the same time during a knot they fall asleep together to is heart wrenching. Thank god Delta had other ideas. This story is of their family and friends it’s definitely worth the read and I’m excited for the next, Little Skylar and Dax story.

This was the most emotional of all of the books in this series for me when fated mates
were torn apart without a thought for their happiness. I admired Charlotte’s resilience
and the length she went through to keep her fated mate plus her son safe. Daniel never
gave up on a future with Char and his son. He had no choice but to let them go, but
nothing was stopping him from claiming Char now that she was free from a loveless
marriage. Char tried to resist Daniel, but he was like a wildfire that threatened to
consume her. Char realized that Daniel and Raphaêl were as different as night and day.
Daniel respected her opinions while Raphaêl had been harsh and demanding, but she
was not prepared to be vulnerable again.

This was an entertaining story filled with action, danger, sizzling sex scenes, and just the
right amount of spankings. I enjoyed the inclusions of the characters from previous books.
The women continued to defy their men and wreck damage on their enemies. At the core
of it this was a true love story.

It was a pleasure to read this suspenseful second-chance shifter romance & it will definitely capture the reader’s attention. The plot is well-written & has extremely good world building, with intense, emotional scenes. The main characters have interesting back-stories and one of them (a alpha male wolf, Daniel) was absolutely determined & stopped at nothing in order to finally claim his mate (Charlotte aka Char)
There is: wolf shifters, hunters, action, adventure, fated mates, twists & turns, intrigue, suspense, family/pack issues, deceit, betrayal, conspiracies, blackmail, vengeful feelings, conflict, danger, threats, retribution, defiance, discipline, spankings, domination/submission, contentment, steamy scenes, love & a well-deserved, satisfying conclusion for this couple. I honestly enjoyed reading this shifter romance & would recommend this shifter romance & the series to people who enjoy reading this genre.

A Fang in the Sass: Sassy Ever After Book 6

Aria Valderi is a day walker, a vampire that can walk in the sun. Being a descendant of the original queen of the vampires has its perks, but finding out her mate is a wolf shifter isn’t one of them. He’s insufferable, bossy, and too damn sexy for his own good. 

Trevan Stone knows Aria is his. Unfortunately, his tough little vamp has been wreaking all kinds of havoc and now too many people want her dead. It’s going to take more than Trevan can do as a shifter to protect his woman.

Trevan has a secret. One that could put an end to their future together, but it’s not nearly as big as the one her people have, which could end the future of the entire clan. If he can save her from the vampire council that wants her destroyed, there might be a chance for them to work through their issues. But saving her means giving up the reason for his existence, the drive that has pushed him for the last eighty years.

This was such a great continuation of the story. I loved this couple. It may not seem like it, but I thought they fit together well. Wonder if the author plans to add more?

This is actually the first in the Sassy Mates series that I've read. I would recommend starting from the beginning, there were a few things I had to catch up on that I assume happened in previous books (I bet they're fantastic). That being said, this was still an amazing romance story that was exciting and hard to put down.

Aria and Trevan have met in a previous story, but they are both experiencing some denial when it comes to their attraction to each other. Partly because they are different species and neither one of them seem to really like the other. But fate has other ideas, because their worlds are about to collide in a spectacular way. And even their past seems to be drawing the together in a strange twisted way.

Aria is wrapped in defending herself to the vampire council for killing a human blood slave trader. But treachery from within her clan has the council believing it to be murder. As she tries to put together the proof to show her actions justified, the whole things keeps getting bigger and bigger. The trade is larger than she ever knew.

There's a few epic fight scenes - which are hard to find in a romance - and they are done just right. Aria is a strong woman, but also realizes that it's OK to rely on friends and allies to help her out, that she can't do it all by herself. This was a very beautiful love story with forgiveness, trust, and respect becoming the backbone of their future.

I've been waiting to read Aria's story for awhile. Trevan...holy hotness! They are mates but have sorta been avoiding each other a little bit. She's a Vampire Queenish and he's a werewolf. Secrets of the past will either drive them apart or pull them closer. Aria is afraid for her mate and wants to protect him. He's beyond pissed when she sends him away after they first get together. Trevan being a smart wolf understands and goes and does his own investigation about the disappearing people and Aria's wanting to bring her clans into the 21st century. Not to feed on humans anymore so they can walk in the sun like she can and change is never easy or accepted. She's also in trouble with the Council and trying to clear her name at the same time proves troublesome. As powerful as Aria is she sorta gets humbled after she gets her butt kicked and Trevan saves her life. 🙂 Its a great story and all is revealed and I sorta want to see how Alain fairs and Roan but I dont know if we will get any stories about them.

It feels like forever since the last book. We've been waiting a long time for Ellie and Caleb's story. I wasn't disappointed! I laughed and cried and got a few surprises! You know...I almost feel bad for Ray...almost. Take someone who doesn't know a thing about babies and throw him in with 3 triplets who can now shift into cubs. Still though he did kidnap them but they literally drove him nuts. I'm thinking mental institution. 🙂 Oh...lets not forget Tristan giving his sons' and son-in-law advice about what our words "fine" or "nothing" means among other phrases us women use. They were writing it down in their smart phones. Ha. On a serious note I know Caleb made the wrong choice in keeping Ellie, his mate and wife out of the pack politics. I understand his reasoning and so does Ellie. Even Caleb realized at the end he should have included her. An alpha is stronger wiht his mate. I love how she never gave up and she was more or less putting her foot down and helping him no matter what. Now, we learn some really horrific things and I wont give that away. Just know that Rocco's reign is over.

Technically she could just wrap the series and end it here. However, I know a lot of us would like to know what will happen with Aria and Travon and lets not forget Lettie, Nicole's sister. She could do a whole other series with those about the vampire covens or add it to the Sassy Mates series. Lettie is from the Las Vegas area so perhaps a different series or something for her.

Caleb Rahound, was a man on a mission to reclaim his pack and keep one feisty woman safe , boy is that a taxing job . First he had to dispense with his uncle's tyranny – topping Rocco at all cost.
The mystery of Caleb's father's death is addressed. What's more the entire family is not safe .we are catching up with Aria and the ancients (vampires). We see Ellie come into her own. Repercussions threaten couples, tensions are rising.. As the time goes on the Wolfe family realizes the boys are born alphas and Ellie prove she is every bit the alpha female and alphas mate. It's time to leave to forge new lives. Doors open and close but we once again brought into one of the best series out there, Milly Taiden continues to delight and enchant us with her stories.

Milly never disappoints and always chalks a book full of thrills (in and out of the bedroom)! Another hot and completely satisfying read from the mistress of sexiness! I went to sleep completely satisfied from the exquisite journey I went on!! I cannot wait for the next book!!

Fighting for her Mate
Shape Shifter Paranormal Romance Sassy Mates Book 5
by Milly Taiden
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I have never enjoyed reading a book so much. The storyline is Magnificent. The dialogue is hilarious, scorching hot and make you laugh so hard that my husband wanted to know what was I reading. Milly Taiden a master at writing. I wanted to tell every reader I know that you just have to read this book. Milly is so creative, talented and entertaining. This is one of the best addition to a series I have read. There is a scene that made me laugh so hard I cried. I know if you have read any of Milly's books then you know she is one of the best storyteller's you have read. Her books are fast pace, funny, a great flow and well written. I was so excited to read book 5 Fighting for her mate. If you haven't read the other four books in this series you should you will enjoy them. I must copy of a small part of the book for you to laugh about the Wolf son are mated but only Nath and Karla have triplets. I have to say if you don't think this is Brilliant you have never changed a baby diaper! HAHAHA

( This part was copied just to make you laugh )

Excerpts:
The critical moment was just ahead. The success or failure of Operation S***ty No More depended on his next move. Slowly, carefully, he lifted the front section of the diaper and pulled it away.
He saw the enemy. Ewww. S***. S*** was the enemy. Don’t throw up. Don’t throw up. Seconds mattered. Don’t throw up. He pulled the diaper up (don’t throw up) and into the trash bag with one sweeping motion. He quickly tied a knot in the bag and tossed it into the hallway. Enemy camp destroyed. Mission complete.
The first part of the operation had been a success. But the enemy clung to the baby’s skin. Ewww. Don’t throw up.
Ray shed the thick yellow gloves and turned the tub handles to get the right temperature of water. Removing the handheld nozzle for the showerhead, he pushed the knob to redirect the water flow from faucet to hose. A soft rain pattered over the tub’s drain. He aimed the hose toward the naked baby now giggling harder. It seemed the warm droplets tickled. The two others on the floor laughed probably because the infected body in the tub did.
After the enemy was washed away, he put the handheld head into its holder.

This is a must read and I didn't even tell you about Ellie and Caleb story but I know if you read the excerpt you will want to read this book just to fine about what happens to Ray and the babies. This is a Fantastic Read. If you are looking for a Spectacular paranormal book then you need to read this book and the entire series. You can't miss this awesome book or series! This is also a magnificent book to add to your TBR list. I'm felt so good about this series that I'm excited and anxious to read the next book this series. I highly recommend this book and series.

If you believe in the world of paranormal romance, the possibilities are endless and fascinating!

I completely am in love with the family of shifters and their mates in this series! This short novella is just the ticket for continuing the tale of our Sexy Four and the family of wolf shifters.
Karla and Nate have just found out that they are expected TRIPLET cubs and Karla is in panic mode about all the decisions, planning and preparation involved. Still unsure what kind of a mother she will be, as her own was a complete absent failure in her own childhood, she is pushing Nate away and in denial as to the timeline she is facing down with their arrival soon approaching.
Kel, her brother conspires with the whole Wolfe Clan to make the dream nursery happen, the shopping in triplicate for all items needed in their early months of care and growth, and most importantly to assure Karla that she is not ALONE in this new chapter of her life. That she is loved, supported and Her Family will all be there to help her and Nate as they navigate a whole new, unexpected, world as parents.( x3)

This was so enjoyable! I’m surprised 😲 I didn’t laugh out loud several times by the time I was done. It was that good

Emma Ferro wants nothing more than to accept Mason Wolfe’s offer to be his mate. He’s wild, sexy and can do things with his tongue that should be illegal. But Mason is also overwhelming her with his need to protect and keep her out of trouble. He needs to live and let live. It’s not like she’s killed anyone…yet. Until he learns she’s an independent woman, he’s going to stay waiting. 

Mason Wolfe has a problem of the short, sassy and curvy kind. Every time he leaves Emma alone, he knows she’s going to get into trouble. It’s getting to the point he’s ready to slap a tracker on her butt just to keep his sanity. He’s busy holding down the pack, helping with fighting new rogues and a secondary threat that’s come to town. 

When Emma goes searching for a missing girl, she finds a lot more going on in Blue Creek than even the biggest shifters are aware of. With the help of the least likely person, she’ll put herself on the line in order to save the ones she loves. Mason will have to find a way to help Emma or face losing her forever.

Milly Taiden is a true artist/author(brilliant) to bring words and characters to life. The story has to be the most emotional of the series. Emma's past is visited brings out the the Kleenex. Gave the book 5 stars, the storyline and character development are superlative, not to mention, loved catching up with previous couples. There are many changes happening someone is wanting war . And some new and possibly friendly neighbors who will be joining the shifters. Emily Ferro, sexy, curvy , beautiful and extremely willful. When one of her students asks her for help, Emma decides it's time to explore and investigate . Not knowing the danger she's headed into-dives head first without weighing the consequences And with the help of a new friend no less. As her past haunts her, she finds the rush of danger exhilarating. She has placed herself in danger . And that doesn't sit well with a particular mutt. Can she be friends with a predator and keep her mate? Mason Wolfe has only wanted Emma( she is his mate and they're mated) however Emma hasn't taken to the change and she is playing detective with the supernatural. She could be killed and that would kill Mason. With more girls disappearing and the rogues are out for themselves. It's up to Emma and Mason along with their remaining pack to get down to the real issues as in who is kidnapping the girls? And sending them to slaughter, we are introduced to Aria, which is an amazing surprise. The book is just unbelievable,this has to be the best yet in the series,the introduction of supernatural only adds to it.The possibilities are limitless. Bravo to our smut queen yet another winner here

The steamy works of the awesome Milly Taiden is so captivating. I wait for each and every book to be released.
Sassy Mates is one of the best she has.
Aric and Jordan, Nate and Kayla, Nic and Jake to now Mason and Emma these Wolfe Men are something not to be missed.
The hot sex, dirty talk, and Alpha men are sure to be every woman's best dream. Milly's writing is something not to be missed.
Her whit and fast pace story lines are the best.

“Someone recently told me that she couldn't understand why I wanted to sleep with a dog.”
Nic blinked. “What did you say?”
“Nothing. What could I say? He hasn't given me rabies, fleas or ticks, so things are looking up.”

Mason Wolfe has know his mate for years and has taken his time waiting for her to understand and agree to be it in the whole since.
Even though she is always exactly where she shouldn't be and doing things to drive him and his wolf crazy he has no one he needs to protect more then her. He has banned her from his club and threatened all there friends and family to not tell her the trouble going on in the pack all to keep her safe. When he tracks her to a lair of Vampires he has had enough. This has to stop before his little human gets really hurt.

“Listen to me carefully. Your life means more to me than my own. I would give mine up in a second for you.” He frowned, the glow in his eyes dimming with a flash of pain. “Life wouldn't be worth living without you in it.”

Emma feel in love with Mason the minute they meet but he need to understand she is independent. She may only be human but she can shoot and wield a knife like no other. Since her loss of family that she has never gotten over her friends and the Wolfe family are all she has. When mason puts his foot down on everyone telling her things she feels so alone. When looking for a missing student she makes a new friend Aria the blood born Vampire and together they start trying to find out what is going on.

Can Mason accept the things that Emma needs to feel need?

Can they work through what holds Emma back form being his mate?

When they do Mate will Emma take to the Change Bite or Will she remain human?

With her Life on the line will Mason figure a way to help or let Aria make her a Vampire?

: Telling Mason she was his was the truth. She'd been his the moment he'd given her that unwanted but amazing kiss on their first meeting. No man had lived up to him ever since. none ever would."

She has done it again. This book is so good. I’ve read this author’s PDA series and the other sassy mates books and I can say for those wondering that this book was everything I wanted and more. I have expectations when I pick up one of these books. I want exciting plots that are never boring, pulse-pounding action, alpha males that take charge without ever coming off as abusive, and unique personalities that come alive and stay with you long after reading.
This book had all of the above, so I had to scramble over and write a review on it so no one misses out.
Emma is one of my favorite female characters of all time. Brave and stubborn, but with reasons that make sense. The author has a way of making you think one thing about a character and then turning it on its head when you realize you have misjudged them. It makes you think of how you may do that to people in real life. If we actually get to know people and their circumstances and why they are the way they are, we just might love them. That’s a powerful lesson to glean from a paranormal shifter novel. I think it's part of what makes this author an all-star.
But anyway, Emma was awesome. She’s strong and capable and yes, a little reckless, but what better way for us to see our super hot and powerful alpha getting all rawr protective of his woman?
Speaking of which…MASON. Ohhhhhh Mason. *Fans face*. I don't even know what to say there. *Blush*.
He's protective, persistent, a sexy powerhouse in the bedroom, a dirty talker who never goes over the top. Just a really, really hot male of the type that you'd like to have for your own. Borrowing him for a few hours is nice too. 😉 I was just so impressed at how he handled her stubbornness. He wanted so badly to protect her, but he knew he didn't have the right to control her. This was a true love story of two people giving each other the space and patience needed to build a relationship on the right foundations. And we readers got to enjoy the hot sexy smex in the meantime!
There is also a lot of action in this book that really got my heart-rate going! Eek! I mean, not over the top but just NEVER BORING. EVER. Always something happening, which I love in a book.
It’s a nice length, and if you’ve read the other books, you’ll have fun seeing some of the characters again. It never fails to put a smile on my face. But I think I was even more excited about some of the cool new characters we get to meet that were just awesome! I won’t spoil anything though, just saying this is one of her pretty action filled books, with a good bit of mystery, which I like.
But there were some really heart-warming and emotionally gripping moments that stayed with me long after I put the book down. These are the kinds of books I remember. I strongly recommend not passing this book up. Warning, it will make you want to go through her backlist and buy up the rest.

After being instrumental in getting all but one of her friends matched up and mated to the Wolfe brothers, Emma still is having a hard time excepting her own Wolfe brother Mason. Emma is very independent and due to the controlling nature of her military father, she unable to trust in a relationship with very overprotective Mason. Mason has already claimed Emma and is having a hard time getting her to except him and the mating. She drives him insane getting herself involved in dangerous situations trying to help her friends when she is still human and vulnerable and he's distracted trying to help the alpha of a neighboring pack save his pack from his evil uncle and the rogues he brought in to take over.
I love all the books in the Sassy Mates series, they are very funny and sexy but at the same time they are serious and deal with real relationship issues. All Emma wants is for Mason to love and except her as a independent woman, a partner to him, not coddle her like a child. All Mason wants is to love, cherish and protect the woman who is his life. After making a mistake that could cost him his mate, he finally sees he needs to trust in her ability to take care of herself and treat her like an equal, they work together to find who has been kidnapping teenage girls in their town and why. I love all of the books by Milly Taiden that I've read so far and you definitely can't go wrong reading the Sassy Mates series. I can't wait for the next one!!!

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!
