I gave this book 3 stars instead of the 5 stars like I did the first 3 in the series. This one confused me a little I missed big parts of it like when the hell did Lucian and Sabaan bond. I feel like I almost missed a short story in there or something. Book 3 ended with them making up again as usual and this one started with one hell of a fight.
I do like the plot, suspense and where the author is taking the series but to many things bothered me in this one for me to give it a better rating. Sil

"’Secrets hurt,’ I said softly. ‘And we've been carrying our own for a while now.’"

That statement by Peter sums up so much of what this book is about. Peter is dealing with the effects of secrets being kept both by him and by those around him. Lucien is keeping secrets from Peter. Peter is keeping secrets from Lucien. Simon is keeping secrets about his past from Peter and Peter is keeping secrets from Simon. Simon is keeping secrets from Rhys. Secrets are everywhere and they are putting stress o

This is the 4th installment of the Soulmates series by Jourdan Lane and as far as I am concerned, it didn't dissapoint, although, it does leave you hanging on several things. This one is more of a stepping stone for the 5th book, or is setting you up for all of the events that are going to be happening next. There are two major cliff hangers in this one; one involving Peter and one involving Simon. I won't say what they are, because to do so would be to spoil this one if you haven't read it... s ...more
Jourdan Lane has written a fantastic urban fantasy series that has kept me well entertained this past week. There are currently 4 books in the series with more to come I hope!
Peter is a human who catches the eye of the local master vampire Lucien. Much smex ensues. As their relationship develops, Peter becomes more involved in the coven and local supernatural politics. There is also the odd battle and intrigue abounds with human hunters, werewolves and the vampire ruling body.

This is the 4th book in the Soul Mates Series. We find Peter and Lucien's relationship on the rocks, again. Peter is still trying to find a balance and someone is clearly still trying to kill him. But we do get to see Ethan & Noah from the story Instinct finally join the Coven. I think I would really read all the short stories I've read so far between Sacrifice & Secrets because it seems that's when they all occurred.

Ok, so the thing about this book is it feels incomplete. Peter & Lu
The sixth story set in the Soul Mates series is aptly named. At different points in the book just about everyone is keeping a secret from someone else. Peter and Lucien are keeping secrets from each other, Simon is keeping secrets from everyone but Peter, Sabaan is helping Lucien keep his secrets and even Nikolas has a secret he's keeping.

As the tension rises between Peter and Lucien the bonds of their love will be severely tested and at times it will seem as if there's nothing good left between
It's a terrible thing but I'll start this review saying that Jourdan Lane disappoint me!
A little backgroud: Silver is a Brazilian character of her book...
Now read this:

After a quick change of clothes, I grabbed my phone and headed out. I was just about to walk out the side entrance when Silver caught up to me.
"Where do you think you're going?"
His Spanish accent was heavier tonight than it'd been since I'd first met him.

Silver is Brazilian, LIKE ME, so why he has a Spanish accen

I love this series, but this book is al over the place, shifting characters to and fro. The plot jumps from one part to another, leaving bits and picking them up again. It makes both the characters and the plot weak. Once the story got going there suddenly is an epilogue.

I'm hoping that the next book will be more put together. That is, if there is a next book.
OK, According to Jourdan Lane's Website, the order of this series is:

- Soul Mates: Bound by Blood
- Soul Mates: Deceptions
- Instinct — in The Call anthology
- Soul Mates: Sacrifice
- Nice: A Coven Christmas
- Possession -- in Spiked Anthology
- Soul Mates: Secrets
- Mark of the Beast
- Clarity -- in Toy Box: Biting

Just to let everybody know.

So far, it is the worst book in the Soul Mates series. For one, it seems that nobody bothered to proof read it: there are so many mistakes, that they not only annoy, but sometimes even make unclear what was meant. Another thing is the author's style. I would expect improvement from book to book, but this one dissapointed. It's bad to the point of words-parasites, unnecessary repeated over and over, like "flipped off" that can be seen in every chapter.
Aside from style and language, the plot is we
This is a 4.3 for me.
This one obviously merely a bridge to the following book which is awaiting to be published yet. The change of heart in Lucien is too drastic to comprehend fully. And the focus relationship seems has moved from Lucien&Peter to the polygamous one that involved Nikolas&Sabaan as well.

I will give this book the same review I gave the first three books in this series Soul Mates: Bound by Blood, Soul Mates: Deception & Soul Mates: Sacrifice.

One of my down falls when it comes to reading, is that I read so many books that I can't remember ALOT of them, therefor it takes an amazing book that I literally can not put down for me to remember it, THIS IS ONE OF THOSE AMAZING BOOKS!

SOUL MATES: SECRETS has everything that I love in a vampire romance: sex, romance (dahh), passion, da

~Has spoilers from previous books and this one!!~

I really enjoyed this fourth installment of the Soul Mates series. Though it did seem much shorter than previous ones.

The book started out with Lucien and Peter's relationship sounding pretty rocky and one quickly gets absorbed in the world the author has created.

In this book I think we get to see a lot more of Peter as his wolf self but we also get to see more of his vampire side as well. Which I though was good because though we knew what he was
This series is one hell of a read. All males, all vampires, all werewolves, a couple of angels, a demon and Peter (human, well not so much anymore.)What more could a girl ask for??? The series is full of passion, action, love and sex that drips from the pages. Jourdan Lane is one hell of a story teller. I devoured these books, I went to sleep thinking about all these wonderful men and woke up thinking about them, yeah it's that good. Peter, Lucien, Nickolas, Sabaan, Simon, Xander, all of them ar ...more
It took a little while for me to get into this one as it's been a long time since I read the earlier books but once I did I loved it. This book takes us deeper into the relationships between Peter and Lucien and Nikolas and Sabaan. The interactions between the four men are fascinating and complicated and kept me turning the pages. We finally find out some of Simon's secrets and Peter's attempts to help him go slightly wrong. There was a heart-stopping moment towards the end but everything turned ...more

Since I haven't read the in-between novellas, I actually felt a bit lost - like when did Sabaan become such a big part of the story? Unfortunately a couple of the novellas are a little pricey for how many pages there are so I'll have to watch for a deal.

Anyway, back to the story - Does Peter cause drama or does it just follow him around? So many secrets from each other. And the bed-hopping was a bit confusing - but we're used to that in this series but I was having a challenge keeping up.

I love

Wonderful continuation to the series. I admit I missed the short that was between books so I lost out on a few things and it has been a while since I read book 3. (Should have brushed up.) Still loved the story and the characters. I think it is interesting how Peter and Lucien's relationship is developing. Peter seems like such a slut but all things considered into it he isn't. Peter is just so open. I am not surprised he has had some difficulties in his relationships because of it. I really hop ...more
If you like gay vampires this series is for you. Very well written and very erotic. The models on the cover of these books fit perfectly to the characters. And what a cast of characters.

Lucien, a vampire, seduces Peter. The first time they have sex, Petere lets Lucien bite him and their life together begins.

It has vampires, werewolves, demons, vampire hunters.

I really love vampire stories because there is always eroticism associated with them. I really would love to see a movie or series made ou
This was a good read, delving into the secrets all the vampires and werewolves share.

Excellent Erotica and Paranormal Romance. I have to say I am impressed with this author in the way she connects the reader with the characters in this story. The drama, action, and humor keeps the reader turning the pages and wanting more. I look forward to reading the next book to find out the on going soga of Lucien, Peter, Nikolas, and Sabaan. Also I am excited to find out what will happen at the trail for Simon. Will Peter's father/brother be caught and justice served. Its all up in the air ...more

Continuing the great M/M paranormal erotica in the SOUL MATES series, I really enjoyed SECRETS as well. Jourdan Lane does another great job getting the reader invested in the characters and the plot twists and turns. There are some definite questions left hanging in the air after this one about Simon, and Peter's father and brother. Don't want to give any spoilers but I definitely have some lingering questions that will keep me going with the series and following half vamp half were Peter. Ohhhh ...more

I think this might be my favorite in the series because of all the new and mended relationships. I love Nikalos and Sabaan. Please don't get thrown out of the circle guys lol. This whole series is crazy, awesome with having a half breed (half vamp, half lycan) master, a horny yet loving incubus wereleopard demon, a fallen angel, and ..and..and orgies!. It's almost like watching an episode of True Blood lol. My only issue is that it was so short compared to the last three books. Can't wait to rea ...more
Oh my!!! The new future together is not going as well as Peter had hoped. Lucien is keeping secrets from him and they are causing a rift. And his secrets from Lucien are also in the way. Relationships come to a head, but Peter is finding out that "family" can cause a LOT of trouble.

Recommended as one of my favorites.
This book disappointed me when I compare it to the the earlier installments of the series. I felt like we had skipped important moments and the plot seemed thin. Overall I still love the series and the new dynamic of Peter's relationship
Steven Crawley
Very well written and fun book to read the characters jump off the page or drag you onto it with them, very easy to read a definite page turner.
