Review ~ Bearly In Control by Milly Taiden

Book: Bearly In Control

Series: Shifters Undercover #1

Author: Milly Taiden

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Format/Page Count: e-book, 208

For vet and animal whisperer Charli Avers, talking to bears is all in a day’s work. But when she finds a man—a very sexy, very alpha man—where a bear ought to be, the wild comes close to home. Charli is drawn to this mysterious stranger. She wants to help him piece together the past he can’t remember—even if that means shedding her human misgivings and embracing her more carnal desires.

After shifting from bear to man, Barry believes he’s finally found his mate. Now he just needs to find himself. He doesn’t know much about the animal within him, but his human heart aches for Charli. She ignites his instincts to protect her from all danger—including their electric attraction.

The stakes climb as Charli investigates the mystery behind Barry’s memory loss and how it may relate to strange sightings and thefts in this little corner of Oregon. Without answers, she may lose Barry—and herself—to the wild side forever.

Being the first book I’ve ever read by Milly Taiden, and the first paranormal romance in quite a while, I wasn’t impressed with BEARLY IN CONTROL. With its pretty cover and promising plot, this book would’ve been better if it was longer so the whole story, character developments and the breadcrumbs that were left for the upcoming books could’ve spread out more evenly. The way it was, everything felt very rushed. The meeting of the hero and heroine was rushed, their falling for each other was rushed-even considered by pnr standards- the action, the introduction of the rest of the characters were all rushed.

Review ~ Grave Attraction by Lori Sjoberg

He’s a reaper who works by the book. But a sexy shifter will have him changing the course of fate just to be with her—if a killer doesn’t get to her first…

After four years as a reaper, helping souls cross into the afterlife is a job Adam Javorski has finally gotten used to. But when he arrives at the site of a serial killer’s latest victim, finding a living—not to mention gorgeous—hostage is the last thing he expects. The young woman captivates him in a way no one ever has—so much so, he breaks rule number one by helping her escape…

Marlena Walther doesn’t remember the man who rescued her. But when she sees Adam again, she recognizes him instantly as her soul mate. While the two work together to track down a killer determined to finish what he started, their undeniable attraction draws them even closer. Now Adam is the only one who can protect Marlena from a vengeful murderer—if he’s willing to sacrifice everything for her.



Alright, I’m going to be completely straightforward and tell you that it’s been close to a lifetime while I’ve been trying to write this review. Why? Not because I didn’t like the book because I loved it. Not because I couldn’t find anything to say about it because damn, my mind’s been filled with things I wanted to say even while still reading the book. The only other option left was that I’m stuck with my words. Still with me on the blog? Thank you, lovelies. So I’ve decided to pull on my big girl panties and sit down after a nice meal and a cup of tea and write this review down.

The last time I’ve seen Adam, he was the new reaper in town and still hadn’t come to terms with his situation, you know, the fact that he was dead and expected to reap souls and all that. Until we’ve come to Adam we’ve gone through some time, so the Adam we meet in this book was the more mature version of the once-rookie. Being a cop in his mortal life, the circumstances under which he meets Marlena compel him to help her. Not only that, but he also feels a strange pull toward her, one that he can’t help but ignore.

Review ~ Bound To Darkness by Lara Adrian

Series: Midnight Breed #13

Author: Lara Adrian

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Format: e-book

Page Count: 243

Carys Chase is accustomed to making her own rules and letting her heart lead the way–no matter what anyone else has to say about it. A rare Breed female and a daywalker as well, headstrong, beautiful Carys is one of the most powerful of her kind. She lives passionately and loves without limits, especially when it comes to the lethal cage-fighting Breed warrior called Rune.

Unbeatable in the ring, Rune exists in a brutal world of blood and bone and death. He’s made his share of enemies both in and out of the arena, and his secrets run as deep and turbulent as his past. A dangerous loner who has survived by his fists and fangs, Rune has never allowed anyone to get too close to him…until Carys. But when the bodies buried in his past rise up to threaten his present, Rune must choose between betraying Carys’s trust or putting her in the crosshairs of a battle neither of them can hope to win on their own.



Oh, how much I missed the Midnight Breed series..I couldn’t tell you what a pleasure it was to be back in this world.
It’s been a while since I last read a book from this series, and I have to admit, I might’ve neglected to read them-only a little, I swear!- but to pick it up and start where I left off was just the kind of reading break I needed. It’s always nice to discover new authors, delve into new worlds and experience new things, but there is nothing like falling into that comfortable bubble with just you and one of your favorite authors.

Those who’re familiar with this series will need no introductions simply because I’m sure they’ve read this already, but those who don’t know, please pick it up if you like vampiric paranormal romance. I know they’ve been told about in a million different ways these blood sucking creatures, but Lara Adrian’s interpretation is definitely one of my favorites of the genre. She takes the term vampire and puts a new spin to it, adding all kinds of plotlines and history, and then mixes them up with yet another myth. She spins a tale that’s quite enjoyable and sexy. The best part though, and this is lacking in so many examples of the same genre, is the heroines. They’re not just ornaments for the reading pleasure of sexy times, but they’re an integral part of the story. They have their own storylines, their own strength and weaknesses. Simply put, they have their own voices in these books. I know the series is called the MIDNIGHT BREED, and the name Breed is the one given to the males of the species, but these are as much the heroines’ stories as the heroes. Not one character is tossed aside, and this is what I love about the MIDNIGHT BREED.
