Medium heat, warm story, all around feel-good book!
but what was the book meant to be about? I kept reading it to see if something interesting would happen...and was sorely disappointed when I finished it.
Every few chapters, a whole 8 pages of sex. It kinda got annoying after a while. Was hoping maybe Roland would be some bad guy or something might happen to Sophie or something interesting. But nope, nothing. Dont pick it up if you want to read something that holds your attention other than sex.
Im sorry, I really enjoy reading books but thi ...more
I didn't enjoy the romance or the erotica.
Why? There wasn't any.
An argument could be made that there was an element of erotica. Although the story included crotchless underwear...there was no real detail/foreplay/sizzle to me.
And lets be honest....why else would you read this type of book?
The story was of Artemais & Sophie. Artemais is the eldest of his brothers and is eagerly trying to find his mate. He will know his mate be ...more

Sophie Briggs threw caution to the wind for one night, and found herself six weeks later staring at a scary line on her positive home pregnancy test. Now the biggest problem she has to face is whether or not to contact the father, a man she hardly knows. He may not know about her and the baby, but she is learning lots about him. Her nightly dreams are hot enough to ignite the bed sheets!
Plot moves pretty quickly, and the main character Sophie has a decent amount of back story. The author tried to weave in another storyline about a half werewolf that is just finding out who he is and what happened to his mom, however I don't think this was done particularly well. In fact, it seems like it was added to make the story seem like it had more depth.
The four brothe ...more
Everything was perfectly paced and it was very refreshing to read a book that does not have a horrific, crazed or violent criminal (type) in it and still hold intense curiosity of what will happen next. Loved, loved, loved and loved all of the brothers and their sexy pe ...more
I think the heroine, when told that the father of her child is a werewolf, came too easily to accept that this could be so. I'd have been shitting bricks.
The subplot was too divorced from the main plot, it should have been in a separate book.
The sex scenes were good but not great, and did not serve to forward the plot.

I enjoyed it enough that I will probably try to get the stories of the other brothers--this story featured Artemais, the oldest brother in the family who finds his mate, Sophie, when she comes to hear The Howlers play at a local bar.
Stories are driven by conflict: here there's nothing. But sex of course. Plenty boring. Why introducing some twist and plot elements if they do not move the story forward? What is the point of Roland?
Even in erotica there's better.
Elizabeth regularly goes to the gym to chew over her ideas; many a book has begun or been worked through while cycling on the bikes. She a ...more
