I couldn't possibly be reading the same book as those who left 5-star reviews.

If you can't play the guitar, don't start a rock band until you can. If you can't write, don't publish an ebook until you learn how. I feel terrible about leaving this kind of review, but this is a prime example of someone who has some skill in storytelling but not the technical know-how. I honestly wonder if the author is 12, because that's how he/she writes. There are formatting issues all throughout the book on darn

I have not yet read the series so I cannot comment whether this is a prequel or a short with-in the series. I can tell you the story begins in August 1999 while Jessica is returning for a camping trip from hell with her soon to be ex-boyfriend Steve and his friends Brian and Abi. Where in diabetic distress Jessica Tandy meet Flint Riverclaw and he tends to immediate needs of her health.

The cover art was just horrible. I only downloaded “Claimed” for free on by kindle because of the Good Reads S

This book had conflicting messages and the characterization of Jessica was not consistent. This review will reveal some things in the plot... so if you plan on reading it anyway, just know that.

Jessica is all: woman-power! Go girl speak your mind! But doesn't say anything to her party when she needs food for her diabetes.

Her one-night stand man comes to retrieve her after revealing she is his mate and the girl just drops EVERYTHING after one petty argument. So it's like no! you're crazy...oh, al

Jessica  `~Blahyze~`
This was great! Totally surpassed my expectations. I loved it, I couldn't stop reading from the second I started reading and I didn't want to stop! This was definitely one of the better werewolf stories I have read in a while. I loved the characters, I love the way Flint protected Jessica right from the start. Her boyfriend Steve was a total jack-ass and I was glad when he was finally out of the picture. He just expected Jessica to be enthusiastic with camping when she wasn’t used to the outdoor ...more

I'm sorry, I just wasn't a fan of this one. I was contemplating a 2 star vote, but then thought again about how much it annoyed me and couldn't quite get there (which made me sad).

But, I have a problem in that I am almost physically incapable of not finishing a book to it's bitter end.

The plot itself has promise, Jessica is on a camping trip with her loser boyfriend and two other people in Alaska. They stop in a bar the night before they are supposed to fly out of Anchorage and they all get was

What was this author thinking? This book is so funny but not intentionally. It's hilarious because it's so appalling. I read a few chapters and couldn't stop laughing.


I can handle the poorly written prose, the odd sentence structuring and childish use of words. But the plot, asinine dialogue and character non-development was LMAO funny.

Wow, the reviews for this story are really hot and cold. The Grammar Police are such killjoys. I was honestly so caught up in the story and didn’t notice the grammar. I know that I would be the first person behind bars if the Grammar Police had any real power. Thank goodness, I’m here to read the stories not to edit them. If I were in charge, there would be a lot more run-ons and a lot fewer commas in the world. Please, let’s not get started on my typos- I am in no position to criticize a storyt ...more

The heroine's name is Jessica Tandy, which had me skip this book once even though it's free. That was a mistake. I really enjoyed this book and for sure will read more by this author.

Jessica is having the camping trip from hell with her soon to be ex-boyfriend. She's a diabetic, but he doesn't think of that or help her out in anyway. They stop at a bar where she's forced to go to the bar herself to get a juice because he's too busy drinking it up. Flint walks over to help her. When Jessica and

OH MY GOD! I love this book!! I finished it in a day! I wish it was a series or something <3 <3 *sigh* Perfectly written, the only thing i didn't understand were how the werewolves looked? Not sure i might have to re-read that part because it sounded kinda corny/weird, but either way brilliant job! It's a shame that this book costed me $0 !! i would've paid so much ! After readign it i felt so guilty i wanted to cash like 10 dollars in Smith's bank account. Lol anyways, beautiful read, i j ...more

“Claimed” by K.R Smith is a paranormal romance novella and I enjoyed reading it. It’s a werewolf story, little different of what I have used to read so far. In which way? Here the werewolves aren’t the I-want-to-look-like-a-badass-man-but-I-am-a-good-guy type but they are nice men who live in a quiet place with their families.

The story is about Jessica a young woman who was about to break up with her boyfriend but for the moment she got stuck in a small town in Alaska after a horrible trip. In a

After the story, there is a note that this novella is actually just the flashback part of a longer novel, which is good. Good as in it makes the disproportionate amount of exposition and conversation to explain things make more sense. Not necessarily good as in I want to read the full novel.

Overall, this novella was pretty bad. Not very good. Kinda a waste of three hours. Perhaps not the worst thing I ever read, but not much better.

So, what made it so bad? Well, let's start with the commas. I ra

This story begins with Jessica, a diabetic that has traveled to Alaska with her two month boyfriend, Steve and his friends. They end up at a bar where Jessica isn’t feeling well from camping for the past week and there she meets Flint. Flint sees her despair and after having words with Steve, he offers to take her where she needs to go. The evening ends up being a passion filled night for Jessica with Flint. There’s a bonding there she is unaware of but when Flint finds her, there is no going ba ...more

Seriously poor story line and writing. My guess is the author is not a native English speaker both from the inability to utilize grammar rules and the date on the email. (DD/MM/YY rather than the American MM/DD/YY) The rules of writing can be learned, and I would encourage the author to make the attempt.
Erin
Pretty decent for a short story. I really wish it was an entire novel!
PepperP0t (ireadthatbook.com)
Unfortunately I didn't think much of this very short novella. This is like a 1-1.75star read. This was like an accident I couldn't look away from.

Jessica Tandy (yes- that should have been my first clue) has just been through one of the worst weeks of her life after camping with her jerk of a boyfriend Steve and a couple of his friends when the four of them stop at a bar in Alma, Alaska. Jessica has had enough of Steve's boorish behavior and decides to order dinner at the bar instead of their ta

This novella was so awfully written I couldn't even finish it. I'm glad I didn't spend any money on it.

The characterization was flat and stale and full of stereotype crutches. The main character is suppose to be this savvy buisnesswoman in a PR firm. Any successful businesswoman, especially one that deals with difficult clients, would know how to stand up for herself. Not this case for poor, diabetic Jess who let's her orge of a boyfriend treat her like shit. It takes a complete stranger interfe

(REVIEW includes fan art cover)

Jessica has had a bad week, she's been cold, hungry, and without shower and her diabetes doesn't approve, so when her boyfriend and their couple friend stop at Alma for food things slip away from her control.

Luckily one of the locals, Flint, helps her gather her composure and he joins her to eat as her soon-to-be-ex boyfriend drinks with his friends. They strike a little friendship but as her boyfriend sees what’s going on things escalate as she is soon sans boyfri

Today's review is on Claimed by K.R. Smith

Claimed is the first book in Smith's Lokoti Werewolf series and though I have read some negative reviews of this book, I think it was pretty good and I really enjoyed reading it. The copy that I have been given did have one or two error's, but I was notified that the author has already submitted a revised copy.

Jessica Tandy, a self proclaimed city girl and business professional, goes on a camping trip with her boyfriend of two months and a couple of his

I got this as a free download to my Kindle and for a free download it was not to bad.... I rather enjoyed the book and the story line. I love books about werewolves so I thought I would download it and start reading it. Now I didn't realize it was a Novella at first until I started wondering why things were moving way to fast for a novel then I got to looking and it was a Novella. That was my fault for not fulling getting all the information before reading it. But for a Novella it sure was prett ...more

Claimed by K.R. Smith
This is a pretty short quick read. Jessica Tandy was off on an Alaskan adventure with her boyfriend of two months, Steve and another couple. The trip helped her to see he was not her kind of guy. The biggest problem was he did not seem to care about her diabetes. As her numbers were off course so was her attitude. When they stopped in the small town of Alma and went into Charlie's Bar, it all came to a head. Jess just wanted to get to Anchorage and a real hotel, bed and show

I sort of have mixed feelings on this one. While I was reading it I enjoyed the ride, but found myself distracted by word usage. It was clear the author did not speak American English. I do not find this a problem when books take place elsewhere or when a character is from elsewhere, but it just felt off in spots since this book took place entirely on America. I did enjoy the story. It had some really interesting lore. I found a couple of spots sad, which means I did connect with the characters. ...more

Story description looked good and it was free. I should have known when I saw females name was Jessica Tandy. Rest of book I can only think of the Fried Green Tomatoes movie. She was Very hard to like. Then when she introduces herself to him she tells him how much money she makes. Asks about his profession and then wants to know how much money he makes per year. Really??!! Okay, skip ahead to the bow chick a bow wow scene...He sniffs her, get that. But then she tells him she hasn't showered for ...more

The only reason this book even gets 1 star is because it started off pretty good, which kept me reading. From the 1st sex scene on I felt like I was reading a 14yr old's fantasy. My head hurt from all of the eye rolling it induced. The way things were worded, the things the characters said and the way the story went I just felt like there was no way an adult wrote this. The whole "scene" (and the next few) when he came to her apt was just cringe worthy. I feel really terrible giving such a bad r ...more

Normally I don't write a review and say oh thank God this book was free because it sucked, but this book made me do it for sure. There was no plot, there was no nothing. It was like a boring story someone told you about how they met, got a house and had a baby. And the female lead, I can't even remember her name because it sucked hard but she was a go getter, hard working woman, and she just gave all her life up for him? It felt like she had completely lost herself in this

A short, but very sweet I really enjoyed reading this book and the characters were really kind to each other. It was a nice change of pace from the usual heroines who are taken on a journey of some sorts that is filled with near deaths and terrifying encounters (not that I don’t love those). Not to say that the characters didn’t have any problems, but for the most they had a very romantic meeting with only a small obstacle that they have to take care of. All in all it was a nice read especially ...more

I really loved this book. My only complaint is that it's a novella and not a full book.
I would have loved to hear more about the two main characters and I would have loved to hear more of Flint's side of things.
I feel like this would have been the great start to a series about this couple and their lives together.

I loved it but it is leaving me wanting more. I searched through Smith's other books and didn't find anything that continued this story line. I would love to hear more about this couple

The adventures of the deliriously happy but slightly insane…but even insanity appreciates company. K.R. Smith aka onaya3 is a self-confessed writerholic, but rather than seeking help for her addictions, instead she indulges her obsessive compulsive disorder. The remotes must sit in order on the coffee table, as must her DVD collection which includes Star Trek, X-Files, Supernatural as well as Brit ...more
