My Thoughts...

I have included my review of 2 of the 10 books in this collection.     These are all paranormal stories with different characters.   Each book is a standalone story.    One thing I really enjoyed about this collection is the introduction to many new authors.   A few of these are now on my wish list and I cannot wait to read more by them.

Walk on the Striped Side by Jessie Lane

Series:  Book Two of the Big Bad Bite Series
Published February 25, 2014 by Jessie Lane

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn't be told of his Other identity. Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

My Review:

From the very first page I was hooked.  I stayed up late, I read all day, I could not put this amazing book down.   The immediate attraction between Gage and Elena was apparent.  When they were separated, towards the beginning of their story, I was so upset.  The fact that they were mates, meant to be together for the rest of their lives meant that they should be back together, and soon!  

The details shared in this book were perfect.   There was enough back history that if a reader just picked up this book, without reading the first one, they would be able to enjoy and follow along easily.  But on that comment, I have to say you should read Big Bad Bite first.  The fact that it ended without finishing the story, leaves me anxious for book three. 

Elena is awesome.  She had the balls to stand up to the Alpha Gage, but was understanding and open enough to love him and realize that he was the one meant for her.    She was quirky, especially about that dang spider (which I loved, but totally understand her fear).   She was smart.  Not only military smart, but she understood the lifestyle that he was forced to be and the world he had to live in.  

There was hot and steamy, smooth and sexy, and tough and rumble.  Every page of this book was absolutely perfect.   Once again Jessie Lane did not disappoint.    They gave me everything I was hoping for and more, now to get them moving on the next book in this series.  I need more!

Alpha Wolf Rising by Eliza Gayle
ebook, 115 pages
Published November 4th 2013 by self published 

One man claims her by blood, the other by possession. One wants revenge.

At the rise of the Black Moon, Sierra is to be named the new Alpha of her pack. But first, she must take a wolf mate before she can claim the position. Problem is, she’s in love with two men, one of whom is strictly forbidden. Willing to live a lie, she publicly acknowledges one and keeps the other her dirty little secret.

Nolan and Marek understand Sierra’s needs. Nothing gives them more pleasure than to make her burn, body and soul. Until the pack is attacked and a temperamental stranger from the past threatens to send them spiraling apart. 

Now she must choose between love and duty. A decision with fatal consequences.

My Thoughts…

Holy sex…The story is of Sierra become the new Alpha and a man from her past comes back and shakes up her world.   Yet, because of the Black Moon the magic is higher as is the need for sex.   

It seemed like the answer for everything in this book is to bang it out.    Nolan and Sierra, Marek and Sierra,  Nolan and Marek and Sierra… they all just go for it.    I’m not really complaining it just seemed like every page, every paragraph was sex. 

 I wish there was more story.   I would have loved more history on Sierra and her dad. More history on Sierra and her mate(s) would have been great.    This is a short story.  There are only so many stories that can fit into 115 pages.     It was hard to connect to the characters when all that was shared was their sex drive.  

I am not sure I have ever written a review with the use of the word sex in it so much.   There was no love in this book, there was hot lust.   It wasn’t a bad story it just wasn’t the kind of paranormal story that I enjoy.
