Delicate Freakn' Flower (Freakn' Shifters #1)
Naomi doesn't want to follow tradition and settle down with a violence-loving, chest thumping shapeshifter. She grew up in a household with five, testosterone laden brothers, where none of the dishes matched, the ugly-as-sin furniture could withstand any ca...more
My partner actually really liked this book. I must admit there was a lot less to complain about than I thought there would be. The main character was all aggression and sass. Instead of treating her bitchiness as a problem to be cured, people in the book embraced it and saw it as a...more

I really enjoyed this book and not only for the sexy scenes. You get 2 shape-shifters both destined for one feisty wolf. Most wolves would love to find their soulmate but not her. She tries to fight it and the men try to prove that she needs them. We get a lot of built up sexual tension. But t...more
Wolf shifter Naomi grew up in a house where they had no "nice things" because her five brothers and father were brawlers and broke everything. When she escaped the house and got her own place, she refused to let anyone into her life that would break her stuff, so she decided to settle on a nice, normal - non brawling - human to mate with. Fate, as usual in PNR books...more
Bear Shifter Ethan, knows Naomi is his mate on sight. He has been wanting to settle down and he knows the mate bond is rare, but his chosen mate's response is less than encouraging. Deciding to buck up and deal with it head on, he and his...more
When Delicate Freakn' Flower first came to my attention first thought was that I had to get a copy to read for myself! However being that not only have I bought too many real books as well as digital ones in the past few months kept putting off getting it. Then came the blog blitz giveaways hosted by The Bookish Snob Promotions and the giveaway by Tishia at Paranormal Opinion Blog on...more
Delicate Freakn' Flower features the most interesting kind of characters. Naomi who is looking for a quiet man to live a quiet life yet mouthy herself I don't how she desired quiet at all. Naomi's brothers.... who I'm quite eager to get in the middle of. =D Naomi's parents who seem to have a story of their own. Lastly, the lacrosse buddies. Ethan and Javier....more
But fate has different plans. She goes to a lacrosse game with her best friend (she doesn't like lacrosse), and gets pegged in the face w...more
There's a reason why Eve is an author that's an auto buy for me. I don't even have to read the blurb or see the cover to know I'll enjoy every word. That says...more
La vraie question à propos de ce roman c’est de savoir pourquoi il a été choisi et publié dans la collection bitlit de Milady car cette pochade assez lourdaude tranche singulièrement dans cette collection.
Eve Langlais est une auteure canadienne qui écrit beaucoup, vraiment beaucoup, auto-publie surtout dans des genres variés. Il y en a vraiment pour tous les goûts. Cette série inaugurée par ce roman est donc la première incursion de Milady dans la romance paranormale avec ménage...more
Delicate Freakn' Flower by Eve Langlais is about a young werewolf woman named Naomi who grew up in a household with five older brothers who tended to get scrappy a lot around the house. The violence inherent in the male animal shape-shifters to disclose deep feeling in her childhood home did not lend itself to Martha Stewart type decorating or sensibilities. So her mom had to “make do” to with mismatching dishes and sturdy, well worn furniture.
Naomi is bound and determined to f...more
I was a litter nervous about this book - but since I read some high praised reviews about it - I thought I'd give it a chance.
I'm glad I did - it was really a cute story.
First we meet Naomi - the "Delicate Freakin' Flower" She is a Werewolf shifter - and she's SO TIRED of the violence. Being raised with 5 brothers and a dad who loves to wrestle just as much as the boys do, she is ready to be done with the whole shifter spe...more

So what if they make her hot with just a look and treat her ge...more
I don't know what it is, specifically, about Langlais's books that brings out the feminist in me. It might be the way that everyone likes to steam roll over the heroine's wishes as if she's a stupid child who doesn't know what's good for her. It might be that the books fail the Bec...more
