I have to say that as the last book that takes place in Wonderland before they move to Oz, this one feel horrible short for me.

I just want to make a note that I read these types of books for what they are intended for, a quick read, a simple and fun plot, and good raw sexy fun. I don't read them thinking they are on the New York Times best seller list I know they are for pure sexy fun.

However, with that being said. As a series I still would like a firm, solid conclusion. I know she has two mor

This series has been an enjoyable one. All books have ticked all the boxes for me, I mean these are erotic romance novels people. If you want a if you a novel that is complex t his series isn't for you. However if you want to escape to the sexy kingdom of tarok to be swept away by the king of hearts or one of his brothers the kings of spades, clubs or diamonds then you will enjoy these books. Just make sure you pack your collar and nipple rings if you know what I mean. These books have light bds ...more

Awai Steele escaped from an abusive marriage to become a successful business woman during the day and a leather wearing, whip cracking Dominatrix at night. For the past 3 years on the same day, one of her nieces has gone missing without a trace. This year Awai thinks she's prepared, whip in hand, for what's coming her way but she never expected the King of Clubs. Ty is ready to make Awai his queen, something that requires her complete submission. Sexually, Awai enjoys this but she'll ne

When I sat down to read this book, I was antsy with excitement. It sounded just like what I love. It had all the elements in a paranormal romance that will steal my heart: passion, suspense, shifters, BDSM…..all amazing elements. I wanted to be sucked into the heart of the story, taken on a joy ride of lust and desire. I was. But, there was still a little bit missing, and I think it was because I came into

Book #4 in the Wonderland series!! Whew, I'm a slacker and got crazy behind on my reviews and I can't believe I let this one set in my TBR pile so long!!

Awai is so much like Alexi it isn't funny, those two are peas in a pod! She is a ball busting career woman scarred by her past and refuses to let anyone but her nieces close to her. She is also a dominatrix in her free time. So of course when the anniversaries of her niece's disappearances rolls around, she straps on her leather boots, grabs he

***A gifted copy was provided by the author for my honest review****

This is book 4 in the Wonderland series. This is Awai & Ty’s story.
Awai Steele was once married to a horrible, brutal man who beat her and made her feel like she was worth nothing. She barely got away and now she is a very successful woman who doesn’t let a man make her feel like she like she did before- scared and afraid. And in secret she decides to take back her own in a very “dominant “way.
Awai has lost her 3 nieces thr

The final installment of the Wonderland Series. I wanted to like this book. No really, I did. By far, this king is the most likeable of the 4 brothers. The heroine, Awai was also likeable. She had a tragic back story and you just really wanted the happy ending for her.

Despite the likable characters the story dragged. Many of the scenes felt recycled from earlier books and from earlier scenes in the same book. Yes, there was finally some closure in the ongoing story line, but by the time we got

I really liked this book. This one is more along the lines of the first book. It has a lot more erotica in it and a lot of Dom vs sub behaviors. Ty is less forceful until Anwai decided to submit to him and then he is a total Dom. This story ties up a few loose ends, but it does have a bit of a cliffhanger leaving it open for another book, which I hope is in the works.

This extended version was written so well it was hard to tell were the additions were added. It felt like the book was written this way from the beginning. I really enjoy reading the wonderland stories and this is my second favorite in the series.
Ty is good looking, dominant, strong, and loves Awai. What more could you want in a leading man. I love the ending.

Shelves: lo-normal
Toda la serie fue más de lo mismo, una repetición, solo diferente vestuario, accesorio y carta de la baraja, creo que más le daba interés en resaltar como era el reino, que forma tenia, como era su vestimenta como se veía cuando se lo ponía, pero de la historia en sí, de cómo se relacionan y se enamoran no había mucho tanto asi que cuando decía que se habían enamorado, me decía "Qué?, Cuándo?"

I liked the book overall but I did not like Awai's 180 when it came to Ty. It was complete unrealistic for a woman - who was that severely abused by a man - to change her mind about men and submission that quickly. There was no build up to their relationship either - all the books have been limited but the other had some buildup to make the plot transitions smoother.

This book is awesome! Out of the four brothers Ty is my second favorite. I love the way he doesn't always have to be in charge, but is still a very dom of a man. The sex is great, the story is developed.
I read this edition and the others in the series, thinking that it was a separate series. There were some differences between the originals and the re-releases. It was a little confusing and in several spots in the books I did not like the changes.

Ty is absolutely amazing, the most innovative of the brothers in terms of his kink but also the most understanding in terms of what Awai needs from him. Good story.

Okay, finally more BDSM theme with a sort of Domme. She seems to sub just a bit too quick for me. Eh, still a decent read. I finished the entire series.

Good book. I adored Ty and Awai was pretty cool too.
3 1/2 stars. My favorite of the series so far. Awai and Ty are a great couple.

I didn't think I would like shape shiftin books, this series was great.
Jane (PS)
Hmmm. This could have been a lot better. The ending was a bit quick and a bit too neat. Plus it needed new life - some of the moves were getting a bit old by the fourth book.

Reprint, I read the original King of Clubs under Cheyenne McCray and loved it! I hope she continues the series, with the original version there seemed to be one story missing and I really wanted it!

This was a pretty good story with pretty good characters and a pretty good plot. I liked the fantasy world elements and the sex scenes better than the rest.

It was thrilling and exotic. The Kings of 'Wonderland' takes the reader on a journey of limits and love.
