Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing by Terry Spear (Book 1 Billionaire Wolf)

Billionaire

4  Stars

I have really enjoyed Terry Spear’s other wolf series, and this one did not disappoint. I will certainly continue with this series and look forward to the next installment.  Billionaire werewolf Rafe Denali never wants for anything.  What Rafe wants, Rafe gets.  This time, he may have gotten more than he bargained for.  When a she wolf almost drowns outside of Rafe’s beach home, he knows that he must act fast.  Taking Jade Ashton and her baby cub in could prove to be a fatal mistake as Jade is a pawn in an evil wolf’s plan.  Jade has some tough decisions to make, and they all revolve around her gorgeous and wealthy rescuer.  If Jade does not betray Rafe, her son will die, and her life is also on the path of destruction.

All of the characters, especially Rafe and Jade, were well flushed and likable.  This was certainly a page turner, and I stayed up late, which I very seldom do anymore.  The narrator was excellent.  Normally, I prefer female narrators (not sure why), but Mr. Constant was right on the mark with this book.  The only reason I gave this book 4 stars is due to the marketing that this is a stand-alone book.  However, I found certain references in this installment to tie back to other books by the same author.

Thanks to Tantor Media for supplying this book in exchange for a honest review.  This review and others can be found at https://readingaroundthegenres.com

A Hunger Like No other (Immortals After Dark #2) by Kresley Cole

Hunger

3 stars

I love a really good PNR book, and this one did not disappoint.  I did not like all of the violence at the beginning, which took me until the middle of the book to really begin enjoying the plot and characters.

The narrator did an excellent job in portraying emotions from both Lachlain and  Emmaline.  The world building in this series is slow, and I hope that the pace does pick up in the upcoming installments.  Lachlain is predestined to have Emma as his mate.  The only problem is that he loathes her family, and she hates him.  Slowly, the two made their way to each other due to circumstances from Emma’s past.

 

Pack Challenge (Mangus Pack #1) by Shelly Laurenston

 

Pack Challenge

3.5 stars

I received this book from Tantor in exchange for an honest review.

I am not quite sure how to even begin this review. I finished a few days  ago and am still processing it.  The storyline was ok but not great.   In this humble reader’s opinion, the secondary charcters played out like a list of whose who.  I felt that several of the so called “friends” were not needed and distracted from the storyline.  I must be on to something, because this is my third biker book in less than a month.  I find this odd since I never have felt compelled to read anything about bikers and even less about motorcycle clubs.

All Zach Sherridan wanted was to become alpha male of his pack, and certainly, a needy female was not part of this equation.  Because of Sara Morrighan’s past, all that she could hope for was to have a few friends but certainly not a boyfriend.  Sara quickly realizes that her life can be totally different if she is with Zach.  I really disliked Miki, Sara’s best friend who did not have a filter and said exactly what was on her mind.  I also found Sara to be snotty,boring, and an aggressive drunk.  Sara’s bad behavior was deemed normal since after all, she was coming into her She Wolf phase.  No excuse should have been covered up for her rude obnoxious behavior.   The performance by the narrator definitely made this book more enjoyable.  I will continue to listen to the next book in this installment but not sure if I will continue the series after book 2.
