09/27/2010... I would have given this book a 5 stars but there was just something about Storme that I didnt like... it might have been her prejudice, it might have been her ignorance.. hell, it could have been all the friggin pouting she did... but I didnt like the way she was throwing all types of nasty hateful things about the breeds.. I understand that she grew up like that but come the frig on.. you have had 10 years to grow out of your ignorance...Styx was friggin adorable but Storme.. I ju...more

2.5* Well, on the one hand this book didn't have near as many continuity issues as Lion's Heat. Nor did it have as many grammatical errors. It just takes away from the book when things like that happen, at least for me. On the other hand, I could not stand Storme for about 85% of the book. Also, it is also an all of a sudden change on her part to trusting the Breeds.

Perhaps I am too hard on Storme after the brutal murder of her father and brother at the hand of a Breed however, she just wasn't a...more
Damn this turned out to be one f-----g good read. I almost started to hate Storme, she was so damn hateful and stubborn to the point of pissing me off. I absolutely love Styx, damn what a man/breed. He was so kind, and patient with Storme; almost to good for her.
Ms. Leigh knows how to write steamy, sensual sex scenes, that's for sure. The pace was good but got much better about half way through the book. And the secondary characters where back; I had forgotten how much I loved them in their own...more

Dear Lora Leigh,

I know your loyal fans would buy your grocery list, in hopes of finding anal on it, but could you please do me a huge favor anyway and hire an editor for grammar errors and word repetition? Because the grammar errors and word repetitions were really annoying. Let me tell you, I was very annoyed by the frequent word repetitions.

Despite that, I enjoyed this more than the last several Leighs I’ve read, perhaps because I wasn’t already familiar with the main characters and h...more

When she was fourteen she witnessed her brother and father's murder at the hand of a Coyote. She's hated Breeds ever since...So what the heck is she doing, ten years later, in a hotel with one.

Well, he doesn't know who she is, he's warm, provides a sense of (false) security, and he's hot in and out of bed. I guess that makes it right.
Yeah, if the first "thesis" were true, but Styx knows exactly who he holds in his arms. The woman he's been chasing for the past two years. The woman who holds vita...more

Styx Storm

The story sets off with the big bang and intriguing mystery that we are accustomed to with Lora Leigh’s Breed series. Lora Leigh is a master at writing erotica. Although the first sex scene seems contrived it is no less exquisitely detailed and leaves you squirming in your seat. Subsequent sex scenes get thrown in at seemingly inopportune moments but they are no less detailed and spicy.

This story continues from Lions Heat where information that is crucial to the Breeds, Council and gen...more
Storme Montague is on the run trying to protect important data that her father had left her after he was brutally murdered by a Coyote breed. It has been ten years of running, hiding and fighting off breeds and Council members and Storme is tired. She knows the breeds will do anything to lure her in and they sent in Styx Mackenzie, a sexy, Scots wolf breed. After one night of passion with him, where she lets down her guard, she is taken by Breeds to the Wolf Compound. Bitter, angry and full of f...more

I really loved this story, as it focused on issues of trust, one of my favorite themes. The heroine has been on the run from age 14, after witnessing the death of her brother and father by a Coyote Breed. Her life is endangered by information entrusted to her care by her father. Ten years later, the good Breeds capture her. Circumstances dictate that they can no longer wait for her to voluntarily bring them what they need.

Styx is asked to get Storm to trust him enough to share the location of th...more

Lora Leigh has officially hooked me into her Breed series! Starting at the beginning now..
Good Reads Styx's Storm:
I've finally given up on author Lora Leigh; after following her Breed series diligently it's become apparent to me that she has succumbed to the "Anita Blake" Syndrome. No, I'm not talking about the main character's deterioration into skanskanky-ness and ridiculousness, I'm speaking of the fact that the author of a once promising series has completely gone off the rails and
a) either had no plotted timeline/story-line,
b) is churning out books just because she can, or
c) h...more
This seems to be my day for tricky reviews. In the last book I read, I enjoyed the story in spite of the main female character, and I am in the same boat here. The Styx part I liked...the Storme part I didn't.

Let me start by saying that Styx is a sweetie. While having all of the intense Breed hotness, he lacks a lot of the Breed baggage. He is genuinely more easy going, flirty and fun than most with his genetics. Styx has a lot of charm, and it goes a long way to making this book enjoyable. The...more
Assigned to bring in the daughter of a scientist who once worked for the dreaded Council that created a new race of genetically enhanced cross breeds, Styx knows almost immediately that Storme Montague is his woman, even if the the telltale mating signs are mysteriously regressed for them. So when he gains the opportunity to charm and seduce he does so with little effort, ensnaring the elusive woman thought to secretly hold information vital to both the evil Council and The Breeds.

Storm cant bel...more
As I've said in past reviews, I love this series! I find each book has become progressively better and more complex. I still love that each book really focuses on the main couple, but still has an overarching storyline that has been developing from the very first book.

This book was all about Styx and Storm. I liked their relationship with each other and the sex scenes were definitely hot. I wish there could have been more character development for Styx, I felt a little cheated. I also thought th...more
I love me some 'breeds' and I've been reading this series since it debut at Ellora's cave. This book was a hard one for me. I had a hard time liking the heroine. However, I think that was the whole point of the book and Ms. Leigh does the whole 'living with enemy' really well. She also advanced the larger series arc with this book - so for that, well done. The thing I had the hardest time with was the whole 'push/pull', 'will they or wont' they, the endless one note of not understanding each oth...more
2.5 stars

This book was just ok, for me. I mean, I wasn't expecting an earth-shattering response as a follow up to Jonas' book....but I was expecting something better than this. *shrugs*

I liked Styx and his flirtatious style but I felt that he kept holding back and kept issuing empty threats to Storme. Storm on the other hand, I didn't really like. She was way to prejudiced to make her a likeable character. I totally get why she was so wary and judgemental towards the Breed community, but I felt...more
Hot, hot, hot, emotionally engaging, and well worth the three hours of sleep I missed finishing this book last night.

I love the way Leigh is weaving all of her characters into the books. I enjoy seeing old friends again.
Okay. Better than some in the series. The heroine was a prejudiced obstinate twit for most of the book. Good thing there's a mating heat or there would have been no reason for him to love her. Bad editing as usual.
Styx’s Storm (Breeds) by Lora Leigh
Paranormal Romance – Oct. 5th, 2010
4 1/2 stars

Storme loved her father and brother. Both of them were intelligent scientists who worked in the Breed labs where genetically altered men and woman were given super human powers when their DNA was illegally combined with animal DNA. These 2 men were deeply sympathetic toward the unwilling victims of science. But there was no way they could escape. When their lab is raided, both scientists frantically try to erase...more

Check out my blog: Escape by Fiction

Oh Lora Leigh, you have done it again. I laughed, I cried and I was confused.

Storm was only 14 when she witnessed her father and brother, scientists working at Breed labs, being brutally killed. Entrusted with data regarding a secret experiment, she's been on the run from the Council and Breeds ever since - not knowing who she can trust. On the run for 10 years, Storm trusts no one.

Styx has been assigned to tracking Storm, and has been for the p...more
This is never going to be a favorite Breed story for me. To me at least the heroine is the poster child for 'there are none so blind as those who will not see'. Sure she had issues - but she held onto them like a three year old with a favored toy...

Plot-wise, Storme is holding information that the Breeds, and especially Jonas, need. Then there's Styx and Storme's relationship and [yet another] kink appears in the mating heat problem.

It could be read as a stand-alone but the story really starts...more
If I had to pick one phrase to describe this book it would definitely be the following: hot mess. Even taking into consideration that this series is not for everyone and that the level of violence and/or sexual content in this book would be an immediate turnoff for some, I've enjoyed enough other books in this series to know that this one did not ring my bell on any level. The plot was recycled and boring, the characters were lifeless and annoying, the conflict was forced, the drama was nonexist...more

I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I enjoyed this book.

Styx was charming, strong, loving, very fun and very sexual to read. Really a perfect wolf. I found myself rather fascinated by the Breed mythology. I liked the idea of genetically altered humans combined with different animals to give them more powers and traits like the creatures they share their genes with. I read and watch a lot of werewolf fiction were so often the creatures background is because of magic in some form or anoth...more

Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't rate Lora Leigh books. I don't think I'm rational about her work. I loved her so many of her earlier books, especially the Breeds. I know I've rated her way too high for several of her works over the past couple of years as she went through personal turmoil while continuing to churn out several books a year. But this one really is 4 stars for me.

I'm happy to see that the editing improves with each book lately, though I hope to see continued improvement. Lora Le...more
Wow. What did I think about this book. GARBAGE! From front to back. Uninspired plotline. Terrible writing. Awful characters. Bad editing. It's to bad she didn't write the book that was in the synopsis about the breed slave traders. That book might have had at least an interesting plot. What has happened to this author. I am beginning to think her husband had a lot more to do with her books than we thought. Because her last 3 books have been horrible and COYOTES MATE was just ok. If her husband d...more
I really wanted to like this series but there were so many things lacking. We should have seen more about Storm growing up at the labs, why she was kept from seeing how the Breeds really were. Her Dad told her that he thought of them as his children but never explained it so she could understand. I would have liked to read more about her on the run as a teenager too. I think with more stories about this then we would have more understood why she felt the way she did about breeds. I wish she was...more

Styx's Storm might be book 22 in the Breeds series but it is still going strong. Styx's Storm is full of both heat and drama, that will have you clinging to the pages.

For the most part I enjoyed Storme Montague's character, there were times that I wanted to grow up a little and accept the hand she was dealt. But overall I understood why she didn't trust people. It would be hard to trust people with the life she had. She survived all those years on the run by being smart and cautious, and not ma...more

Predictable, boring and repetitive with unappealing characters: one of the worst Breeds books

Storme has been on the run for ten years, following the death of her dad and brother at the hands of the Council's assissins. Both the Council and the Breeds want her father's research, which he left with her on a small data chip. She is captured by the Breeds, namely by Styx who seduces her. (That part I found completely unbelieveable, given her hatred of Breeds.) Most of the book she is his captive, an...more

My main problem with this book is different than most of the other reviewers.

Yes, her hatred of the Breeds did get annoying and she did hold on to it for the majority of the book (but honestly the book was not that long), but I was able to understand why that was. Breeds killed her father and brother in front of her at age 14! And she had harbored a resentment for them even before then (for reasons I won't get into in order not to spoil anything). After that, she spent her whole life leading up...more

“I read this forward and knew i'd love the book.

This book is for you.
The men & women, lost & lonely, searching & wary, uncertain & ill prepared for what the heart can lead them into.
Sometimes, love is right around the corner. Its the road not taken that has suddenly intersected with that congested road of life you're traveling, bringing you to a harsh & sudden stop.
It's a look. It's a smile thhat warms you to the depths of your soul, steals your breath, and pulls you aside as that moment in time screams to a halt & leaves you struggling to adjust.
It's the love you didn't expect.
It's the love you didn't ask for, hadn't thought aobut, & you realize it's the love that heals the wounds in your soul.
It's the love that will reveal the person you are, & the life, though never perfect, that you never knew you dreamed of.
Call it destiny, call it fate. Or call it a gift from God.
Whichever, its the dream & the everlasting hope for the future.”
