Bearing His Sin
Cole should have killed Anja the moment he realized she was his mate. Instead, he let her live and now they’re on the hunt, chasing the morons who think they can force her to marry another man. Like hell. And while this shapeshifting bear might have his share of sins, he’s not going to let little things like murder and mayhem prevent him from having the woman meant to be the keeper of his heart.
Bought by the Bear
Josilyn Martinez just needed the money to help raise her nephew. That's it. There's no other reason she would take a job posing as a shifter's mate so he can assure his grandmother he's settled down. There's no reason to stay at his place so they learn "more about each other." And there's definitely no good reason she should get involved with the hard, hot, and handsome shifter that's hired her.
Xander just needs a fake mate for a week to get his grandmother off his back. But what's a bear shifter to do when the impostor mate he hired turns out to be his actual mate? All sweet, luscious curves and a heart of gold, Xander's not going to let his mate get away. Now all he has to do is show her that they belong together, one kiss and touch at a time...
The Alpha and I
Devon Kincaid is happy with her new life in Lowman, Idaho. Her little bar on the outskirts of the tiny, isolated town is doing well, and she’s not even interested in finding a man. But when she finds a bleeding man—a hot, hard, handsome, naked bleeding man—in the snow one night, Devon brings him home to care for him. He’s definitely not like any man she’s ever met before, but what she doesn’t realize is that he’s not just a man…
Liam Murphy isn't simply a werewolf. He's the Alpha. In a heated battle with a deadly bear shifter, he's moved his pack to the Sawtooth Wilderness in order to draw danger from them. He was hoping to escape his problems—but the last thing he expects to find in the isolated Idaho wilderness was his mate. Fragile and unfamiliar with the violent supernatural world, the only way he can protect Devon is to make her what he is: a werewolf. He only hopes that in the process convincing her to enter fully into his world, that he doesn’t drive away the one woman he can’t live without.
One of the things that I really love about anthologies is that you can get a quick feel for a new author or get a short story from a author you love to tide you over till their next book comes out. Either way, it works for me. Thanks Fur Last Night is part of three anthologies book coming out. I'm thinking each individual story is part of it's own three book series.
I've read two of the three authors and I will admit that out of the two I read I only liked one. Not that I let it stop me from really enjoying and getting into the full book. I planned on reading the author I liked, skipping the author I didn't care for before and reading the new to me author.
You know what they say about best laid plans and all that.
So I started with Bearing His Sin by Eve Langlais. I haven't before read here but have seen her books around and often thought about it. I have to say, this is the one that I really didn't like. I can't say I found one thing about the story enjoyable. I didn't care for the characters or even the whole idea of the story.
This didn't bond well for the rest of the book. I was really worried because I knew that out of the other two authors I only liked one.
Because I didn't care for the one Milly Taiden book I read I skipped her story and moved on to Kate Baxter's story next. I already had enough disappointment with the first story.
I ended up loving The Alpha and I by Kate Baxter. It was kinda a given since I already like her. The Alpha and I is a wonderful romance with a bit of a mystery in it. Or maybe it's more suspense. Either way, I really loved this story. Laim is hot and you are so happy that Devon has found him. Wait till you read how they met! This story sets you up to want more of this group.
So far I have one story I didn't care for and another that I loved. I already knew that I didn't care for Taiden from the one other book I read of hers and I was going to pass on her but then I thought about the fact that I'd be reading the next two books for only Baxter and decided to give Taiden's book a try. That thought made me feel better about agreeing to review this book.
Bought By the Bear by Milly Taiden turned out to be very enjoyable. Imagine my surprise when I started reading it and really enjoyed it. I really liked the idea of the story and the characters are funny, touching and there is so much love to go around. I am so glad that I read it and I can't wait for another installment.
As a whole I really enjoyed this book. Two out of three that I liked is pretty good odds. I'll be looking forward to both The Big Alpha in Town out May 15th and In the Mood Fur Love out October 2nd.
If you've read Thanks Fur Last Night or any other book by any of these authors I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
