Im Feuer der Nacht (Psy-Changeling #4)
I was shocked at how much I LOVED this somewhat heartbreaking, humorous, endearing, and amazingly heartwarming story. This book's focus was about the main couple's complicated and enduring relationship rather than the world-building aspect of the over all story arc.
I won't lie, I struggled at first with the heroine and what seemed to be her weak behavior; however, once I realized why she reacted the way she did, I ended up her biggest ...more
A buddy read with my family at BB&B!
This is the fourth book in the series and I keep enjoying as much as when I started!!! It is a PNR with a new couple finding love in each book. The best part of the series, at least to me, is the amazing world building and the specifics which make up the differences between the three main races - the Psy, the Changelings (or animal shifters), and humans. In all the previous books we got to meet Psy and Changeling characters, letting us into the wo ...more
However, the writing itself was weaker than the others. Singh reused several phrases to the point were I actually laughed a couple of times. "His le ...more

Not because of Clay, of course, he's wonderful (as all changeling men are), though a bit too much on the wild side sometimes, and he could've pulled back on the whole "let's ...more
(This is a review of the audiobook.) Sometimes I think listeners of audiobooks have a distinct advantage over readers of hardcopy. If they are well narrated and well directed, as this one is, they can bring to life what the author intended, as tone, inflection, and reaction between characters and how they dialogue is so vital. Such is the case in the fourth installment of Ms. Singh’s Psy-changeling series, which is read by Angela Dawe. She does an awesome job ...more
This is yet another terrific read and a beautiful romance in the intriguing Psy-Changeling universe and my second favorite of the series so far. I wondered if/how Singh could possibly top Caressed by Ice, and while that’s still my favorite, this one isn’t that far behind and the series just keeps getting better and better. The writing is superb, the characters are fascinating, well developed, and rich, the world building is captivating, and the romance is emotional, i ...more
What an amazing book, as usual. I'm not really surprised anymore. This series turned out to be a great surprise for me. Mine to Possess was an awesome book. I wasn't expecting to love Clay's book that much to be honest, but I did, I loved it.
Clay is a complex character and still a mystery when we start reading his book, that's why I wasn't sure about him at first. But reading his story, his past, his feelings, seeing his love and loyalty for his pack and for Talin... it did it for me. Incredibl ...more
On the other hand, I didn't particularly like the female love interest in this book - Tally. She was a victim of childhood abuse, and that was portrayed really well, but she continued to live in that victim mentality with regular woe-is-me pity parties. Considering she got away from her abuser at 8, and she was 28, with a lot of counseling and loving foster parents in the last 20 years, sh ...more
Clay and Tally knew each other since they were kids, and their bond was created through friendship, and later through Clay's act of protectiveness, him killing her foster father and saving her from further abuse and eventually death by the sick idiot.
Tally witnessed the murder and was mentally scarred by it, and eventually became terrified by ...more
"You are the most beautiful thing I've ever dared to touch."
Proving yet again that my mood has a lot to do with my enjoyment of books I'm bumping this one up to 5 stars again. The issues I had with it on my last read are still there but I fell in love with these two all over again and really, really enjoyed this read. Currently having one of those "Books are just so amazing!" moments.

4 Claylicious Stars! Such an amazing series!
I don't even know where to begin. Clay and Talin were destined to be together. What they both had to face and overcome, horrifying, and I was thrilled that they found their way back to each other. The kidnapping and killing of the kids, very disturbing, but not surprising as to what lengths the Psy will go get what they want. Well, their world is starting to crumble and I can't wait until it all comes crashing down around them!
Whenever I picked up a Psy-Changeling book, I knew what I will get.
Changeling will be passionate and possessive
Psy will be stoic, cold and unfeeling. We are always waiting for them to thaw.
Human will make thing interesting because they are more unpredictable.
In Mine to Possess, we have a Changeling hero, Clay, and a human heroine, Talin ...more
There it is...unapologetically shoving it's fabulousness in your face. Leopard spotted male dashing through... fire? Oh and this font, YES THIS FONT. I'm an absolute judge a book by it's cover person, and this magnificent piece of art screams LITE ME ON FIRE I AM TERRIBLE.
I don't have anything good to say about this book, it was my least favorite thus far in the series. First of all the male lead's name is Clay a ...more
Clay is nice but he wasn't irresistible to me. He felt like someone I would want for an older brother, not someone I would be attracted to. Maybe it was because he knew the heroine from such a young age and the connection began as "best friends" and escalated to mates.
Tally is a very strong person BUT her lapses to self-pity kind of lost her points with me. That and the fact that she hurts Clay by being afraid of him when al ...more
This one seems to be a hit or miss for most so I was apprehensive when starting. Well, it worked for me. I can see the frustration with Talin but I looked past it. I thought the story and build was set up very nicely. I constantly picked this book back up and wanted to see what happened next. I liked the interactions between Clay and Talin. Their bossy/bratty talk was fun and different. Overall, a very good addition to this series.

I haven't reviewed book 3, Caressed by Ice, yet, but I wanted to get this one out of my system. Hmm...sounds bad, doesn't it?
Well...I have mixed thoughts/feelings about this 4th installment of the Psy/Changeling series. I’m sad that I didn’t love this one as much as I loved the first 3 books.
Clay Bennett, a sentinel of the DarkRiver leopard pack, grew up in the slums of the human world. He never knew his changeling father and his human Egyp
The only thing is- I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first three.
I had "issues" with the heroine.

This image is perfect for Tally (who is totally unworthy of that name. I am sorry but Tally from Uglies was so awesome). She is so goddamn ANNOYING. She constantly whines. Is incredibly possessive and cannot seem to make up her goddamn mind. Does she want him to be her friend or her lover? MAKE UP YOUR MIND. Grr. Yes I know she had a traumatized childhood and all that jazz but I don't understand her behavior. I know she is scarr ...more
I have had a big run of contemporary romances lately and needed a shifter fix. Boy, why had I waited so long between shifters?? No idea, but it has definately given me another taste for more and I think I will be on a shifter-a-thon for a while.
I started this series over a year ago and read the first three in quick succession, but for some reason must have needed a break, so my memory was a bit fuzzy – which is really disappointing because if I didn’t have t ...more

“Load of shit,” he muttered, but she thought she heard a softening in his tone. “You fucking made me attend tea parties.”
She remembered his threat before the first one: “Tell anyone and I’ll eat you and use your bones as toothpicks.”
