It’s not that he isn’t insanely attracted to Bannon Murphy, but when the man starts talking about mates, Galen balks. He’s been burned by a lying, manipulating shifter before, and he isn’t convinced that he can trust the sexy Irishman.

2014 Re-read:

I really love the titles for this series. They’re actually relevant, yet not giving too much away. (Okay, the first one was a rather forced reference, but still.)

Anyway, I think this instalment dealt well with a difficult and far-reaching decision for which most paranormal books tend to take the easy way. (I.e. sudden, inexplicable acceptance and a disregard for one’s own life.)

The only downside was Bannon’s fit there in the middle when he started to pout like crazy. Understandable

With shifters, vampires, witches and more, this story really kept me on the edge of my seat.

Bannon exudes self-confidence, now if he can just give some of that confidence to his mate, Galen, he may be able to capture the forever after he's always dreamed of. Bannon is a sexy Irishman I would love to have covering my back. His character just made me feel protected even as a reader. I could tell he would do anything to keep those he car

Worse than usual. Awkward writing, shallow and strange interactions, characters overreacting without any build up to go along with it. Plot holes and inconsistencies (such as shifters only being able to mate with other shifters but Malakai, a vampire, is mated to Boston, a shifter and another man who I believe is also a shifter, and both are even included in this book.

Galen acts and is treated like a child again, another small guy who's assertive is "going to be a handful," and the plo
1 stars.

Major WTF! JUST HAPPENED TO THE PLOT! in this one.

In the sister series Moonlight Breed the book 5 was centered on Malakai THE VAMPIRE and his two SHIFTER's lover.

One of the major plot point was the fact that one of the mates didn't wanted to mate with a vampire.

Conclusion 1: Vampire can mate shifter.
Conclusion 2: Shifter can mate vampire.

BUT NO! Not in this one.

One of the major plot point is that Galen doesn't believe that he is Brannon mate because he is not a shifter. Brannon explai

I liked this one a lot! The plot is picking up and becoming more involved and interesting. I liked the fact that Galen didn't just immediately accept that Bannon was his mate. Usually the partner just goes along with things when told that they are a mate. Galen had reason to be cautious but he still took the time to think things through before accepting Bannon.
This book also has one of the best, funniest, and sexiest sex scenes I've read in awhile! It was both hilarious and touching all at the

typical gabrielle evans serial romance. nothing fantastic, nothing so bad it can't be finished. what is typical gabrielle evans? imagine a shorter harlequin romance but with no t&a (see, i was going to write no surprise pregnancies, but... yeah.).

It's been so long since I read the earlier books that I couldn't remember everything that had happened in them but enough came back as I read to help me through the story. This was an enjoyable read. It didn't really stand out for me as a particularly special story but I enjoyed the interaction between Galen and Bannon. I liked Galen's feisty nature and the way he was able to overcome his past and trust in his future with Bannon. As usual, there was some set up story for the mate pairings to com ...more
Another fun and entertaining addition to the series. It was a nice twist that Galen wanted Bannon but didn't believe in fated mates or that he was more than a simple human. Ms. Evans did a nice job showing Bannon's frustration in his untrusting mate.

It was also nice seeing so many of the characters from the previous releases. It gave the book a nice sense of of warmth and family. There's plenty of action near the end and Galen coming to the rescue of Bannon and the others was totally unexpected

Sweet fluffy read, not much drama, favorite type of MC's. Noted one reviewer mentioned that shifter can only mate shifter but the previous book mated two shifters and a vampire. I have to say it's been a long time since I read the last installment and I did miss that. Makes you wonder. Still I liked it for the easy, romantic read.

For some reason I feel like I missed a book. The book itself was fun. The characters engaging. I just didn't get into it though. There was just too much waffle with Galen and pressure but not with Bannon. I just don't know. It was just something that wasn't there. I'm bad at figuring out what but it just seemed...blah.

This one is another fun one by Gabrielle Evans. What I love about it most is the creativity and growth of this world. The powers that both Bannon and Galen have and how well they work together. And the story arc that continues to grow and twist and's all fun and exciting.

Gabrielle Evans grew up in a small town in southern Oklahoma. We’re talking one red light that may or may not work depending on the day of the week. She married her high school sweetheart and the rest is pretty much history. They have two very active boys and one high-strung wiener dog that keeps her constantly on the go. For now, Gabrielle parks her car in north-central Texas, but who knows what ...more
