The Given & The Taken (Tooth and Claw #1)
Love’s compass is never wrong—even when it points in two different directions.
Tooth & Claw, Book 1
After pleading his case to his wolf clan’s Elders, Levi is granted the right to bond with Ian, his male human lover, on one condition: they must spend one year apart. Then Levi must use only their spiritual connection to find Ian, or the deal is off.
Tracking down his...more
I`m not sure how to call it:
The book of gloom or the threesome of doom...
Werewolf loves human and both are forced by werewolf laws to be seperated for one year to complete the bond.The human can`t bear the seperation and seeks comfort in too many drinks and the arms of a vampire bartender who turns him into a vampire (view spoiler)[to prevent an act of despair. (hide spoiler)] Werewolf hates vampires and rejects his cheating former-human-now-vampire-now-ex-boyfriend at their reunion.Of ...more
The Given & the Taken opens with Levi pacing in a snowy field, eagerly awaiting the arrival of his boyfriend Ian. They have been separated for a year after Levi's wolf clan required a test to ensure that as a human (and a male) Ian could bond with Levi and be a proper mate. The men were required to spend a year apart, after which Ian must find Levi using only the strength of their mating bond. Although Levi is nervous, he is confident ...more
I typically do not like paranormal m/m. Vampires and werewolves - like 'em in het romance or urban fantasy, but in m/m they always seem cheesy for some reason. I don't know if it makes sense but it's just how I am, I guess. Add that to how convoluted the blurb for this was, and under normal circumstances I would have said "Nope, not ...more
i neeeeeeeeeeeeed to read this or i will become like this....
one day a young girl was using gr, someone had added a book to her tbr, about three gay men, she dreamed to read the books of course because she was still too young for these kinds of books and she couldn't got them.
a while ago i remembered that girl which was me, but i didn't remember the book (s) title the one which swept me over the face of the earth, now i was looking around and i found it, and i fucking remember it....
and it is m ...more
I liked the three main characters. The author has a deft hand at managing m ...more
I really, really want to read this. I really like the blurb. I even like the product warning. But then, it's Witt and in my experience xe is one of the better authors. I hope this'll be good >.<
...I mean, I knew it was going to happen, but still...
It was all "I hate you, you hate me"
And then this happened.
Trust me; there's outside corroboration. (end of page 5-beginning of page 6)
I hereby conclude that they're all bearded vultures.
It's that phenomenon again. That one I obse ...more
There is plenty of guilt to spare in this story and none of the three feels good enough for the others. This is believable due to the situation, though I can't decide whether I was hit with it over the head too much or not. I guess since I'm having the thought that maybe I was. I ...more
Part of that is that I'm not really big on vampires and shifters, I like some, but I don't seek out the genre. I'm also not huge on love triangles (quadrangles?), so while I think the story was good, and very exciting, it just wasn't ever going to hit my buttons.
The kicker to my so-so review here, is that I'll probably read the sequels :) Like I said, L.A. Witt is an ...more
Not a bad shifter story, it's a little Cardino.C "only" in the way he changes things up with species interaction on a small scale. Nothing like Sherrilyn Kenyon does on an epic scale where they're mostly all one big happy family.
I suppose this begins with 2 MC's that quickly becomes 4MC's and it very long. There are needless parts that could have been chopped out but weren't. It somehow kept me rolling along and it basically becomes "quyst" is that even a bloody real word. I just m ...more
I almost literally couldn't put this down and stayed up way too late reading it. I was in a rare mood for werewolves and am still waiting for Kaje Harper to finish writing her next werewolves book. LA Witt's wolves are totally different but every bit as wonderful. Or not, as the case may be, since their society and rules are as restrictive in their own way as Kaje's.
I was eager to read the next book and was glad to already have it, so I started it almost first thing the next morning. My ...more
With the no offence to the author, the one thing they can write is sex scenes, and the one thing they cannot write is everything else. But play to your strengths and ...more
I also tended to get irritated with Levi on a regular basis. He just wasn’t very understanding in my opinion of what Ian was going through. Then you add the vampire ...more
The Give Me a Break And Just Do Each Other
I wanted to like this book. I have a soft spot for more than two partners in a part, I really do. A three way arrangement full of hate sex? I am sold! But the book didn't live up to that sell. This... this just wasn't any fun. For one, it's really angsty and dreadfully introspective. We spend the first half of the book having the same three conversations again and again with slight variations of person and script while one charac ...more
Men, Behaving Badly
I recently read another book by the same author under the name Lauren Gallagher, WHO'S YOUR DADDY? I thought it was outstanding and gave it a great review. I hadn't thought about this being the same author as I was reading it for a NECRWA contest. It wouldn't have biased me but I wa ...more
(view spoiler)[ Ian and Levi, human and werewolf, respectively, have a strong, fulfilling relationship, in spite of the werewolf clan's diaspproval. So naturally, one must rock the boat. One bonding ritual later, the two are living in two different part ...more
Oh, also -- I like first person POV, and I don't mind reasonable shifting POVs, but I don't like shifting first person POVs. Too confusing. And there's NO difference in the narrative voice between the POVs, which makes it even more confu ...more
I rarely read threesomes, but this one is from L.A.Witt (whom I quite love), so I decided to check it out :)
And it's a rather strange 3some, more like a weird cirlce: first it's Levi(werevolf)&Ian(human), then Ian(human to vampire)&Darius(vampire), then Darius &Levi. It's only turning to a real threesome at the end. So obviously there is cheating in here, because Levi and Ian are never really broken up, they just have to be separated, and that's when Ian manages to hook with ...more
She also has substantially more ti ...more
