Yum! St. Clare has really hooked me with this first book! I will definitely continue with the series and will take a look at her other books.

What a fun and hot read this was! An alpha male, Mikhal, leaves his family/pack in order to set up his own pack. Accompanied by his best friend and Beta, Zach, they join the human world, but soon discover that their inner beast will never be happy living as a human. After living in the human world for 6 months, their natural tendencies begin to surface...e

When I bought this awhile back, I bought it for the cover and because it was menage. When I started reading it yesterday, I realized that our heros were werewolves. Needless to say, I was a bit surprised although it really added to the dynamics of the story.

Mikhal is an alpha male and Zach is a beta male. They leave the pack before Mikhal and his father (leader of their pack) get into it, and make a new life many miles north. They meet Taylor, who just got dumped by her boyfriend and neither wo

3 1/2 stars. This is a toughie to rate... the smut was top notch, the story not so much. I wanted to read this because I'd read the freee follow-up story, After the Ceremony, and really enjoyed it. So as I read about how werewolves best friends Mikhel and Zach found themselves both into the same human woman and heading towards a seemingly inevitable conflict, I was dying to know how they evolved from that situation into the happy threesome of the story. Spoiler if you haven't read about it: (vie ...more

Overall, a nice steamy read but it lacked some back-story and detail.

Mikhel and Zach are both attracted to Taylor and neither of them wants to back down when they invite her to a New Year's party. The problem is that they are both werewolves and Mikhel, especially, has to fight his animal alpha side.

Pretty good chemistry and lot of descriptive sex scenes with lots of raunchy dirty talk.

What was missing though was more info about the were pack. They actually have 3 forms: human, wolf and "were".

New Year's Kiss by Tielle St. Clare (suggested by @SashaDevlin)

This one has two of my favorite things: ménages and shifters. Yum! This story starts out with our heroine, Taylor, getting dumped right before a New Year's party. She's stuck with an expensive ticket and no boy toy to go … when her two best guy friends want to go with her … wait for it … together! This novella is 115 pages of beautiful m/m/f passion and a ton of steam. The werewolf factor comes in with the two guys: Mikhal i

Well, well, well, this was one pretty hot read. A deliciously, scorching triad.

Taylor gets dumped by her boyfriend before a New Year's Eve party and is stuck with an expensive ticket and no one to go with. She laments to her friends, Mikhel and Zach about her dilemma and they offer to go with her...together.

She has a crush one both men, each having different characteristics that she is drawn to. And all she expects is a kiss from one of the guys, possibly both, on the cheek and some champagne. A

This was a book with a little more meat (heh) than I was expecting. Yes, the sexin' is hot and there's something about a dominant shifter demanding submission in the bedroom that glues me to the page, but this one also had an interesting subplot about the m/m side of a threesome. For some reason I liked the whole Me-Alpha side of Mikhel (which doesn't surprise me since I tend to like that in general) but I also liked that he and Zach had to work through some issues with loving one another. I don ...more

Could have been better...I wanted more of the three characters as a triad and a little less competition to claim the woman (even if they both got her). The MMF seemed like an afterthought almost. If it was meant to be a tense, building desire for Zach to want Mikhel then I would have liked to have seen that - not just have his wishes casually tossed into the mix for drama and revealed with some minor previous discussion memories. Seems like that would have been building since he bared h

This was a good start to the series. I didn't love it, but I liked it enough to read the next book in the series. The plot seemed to be overshadowed by extensive sex scenes. Not that I mind some HAWT sex scenes... I still want a story line.

Main Characters: Taylor, Mikhel Haverstam & Zach Courtland
Key Themes: MMF, MFM, Holidays, Paranormal, GFY

Menage featuring a dark-haired wolf alpha-pack leader (Mikhel), his blond beta (Zach), and their human female mate (Taylor).

This is pages and pages of one sex scene after the other, occasionally interrupted by an activity outside the bedroom.

I've read a couple of erotica books before but get a bit bored of the lack of storyline! I thought this book was very well written making the erotica the storyline, if you get what I mean!

I really liked the characters, and how each one was very different but similar at the same time! Like 3 parts of the same jigsaw! But without it being smutty or unbelievable.

I'm not normally a fan of werewolves preferring vampires but this was an exception. I liked the world St Clare created and will definitely

This was a very good story. I really liked all three of the MCs and enjoyed seeing them come together, first as a m/f/m and then later developing in to a m/m/f relationship. I've read this book before and it was worth the reread. This is the first thing I've read by this author but I do intend to read more of her work in the future.

Taylor is a good woman that's had bad luck with guys in the past. Her boyfriend just broke up with her via text on Christmas Eve (she was planning to break up

Wow. It is the first word that comes to mind after reading this book. Mikhel is a werewolf who has gotten to the point where he has to leave his home. It is not possible to have two Alphas around and things are tense with is father. He doesn't want to start his own pack so he and his best friend Zach head out to the city. A few years pass and they are running their own businesses and have befriended a young lady named Taylor. When Taylor gets dumped (by text) right before New Years Eve, Mikhel s ...more

I got this book on Amazon, and I wrote in my notes that it was a personal pick, so that means I purchased it. Anyhow, after reading this book – and this is my first from this author – I am definitely going to read more from her. This book was some of the hottest heat I’ve read in a while. It was ridiculous how hot this was! And like the blurb says, there is a bit of m/m action going on. If that is something you aren’t into, I would still give this book a try because that part is not a very large ...more

I have enjoyed other work by St. Clare, and thought I would try this one.

Mikhel, unhappy in his werewolf family, leaves so he's not part of a pack. His best friend Zach decides to go with him. Some years pass, and they become friends with Taylor, and agree to escort her to a New Year's Eve party. Although Mikhel wants Taylor for himself, he allows Zach to compete for her, and after the party they all decide that rather than choose, they'll just share Taylor via a threesome. And wow...St. Clare k

I'm not really sure how to review this story.
It was a smutty fun time. Lots of sex, lots of snarling, some growling, some claws, and a very weak plot.
If you're looking for a fuckfest this is your book. Most of the story is about MFM but it does develop into MMF. It wasn't as involved as I like in my MM encounters. I prefer more detail, and more reactions from the men, but as a mainly MFM menage book, the author took a decent risk, and it paid off to a degree. It kept me reading to the end anywa

This was a great story... I would love to have two men who wanted me as much as they wanted Taylor. The only problem was they had a secret.. How would she react? Mikhel and Zach have both wanted Taylor from the first day they met but they didn't act on it until she told them she did not have anyone to kiss her on New Year's Eve. So they were determined to give her what she wanted. The only problem was they both has a secret one they were afraid she would run if she found out. Will she run? Or wi ...more

Dumped and dreading spending New Year's alone Taylor doesn't realize that her friends Mikhel and Zach have been waiting for the opportunity to get close to her. Mikhel is an alpha, his best friend Zach is beta but when Mikhel walked away from his pack that evened their platform. Now both are vying for Taylor and when it seems no resolution is in sight, they both decide to share her. Problem is the wolf in Mikhel is not as excited about sharing the woman he wants as his mate, but if Mikhel opens ...more

I was pretty disappointed in this one because it started out on SUCH a great note. The two wolves can't agree on who will take Taylor to the New Year's Eve event so they both take her...ha ha...in both senses of the word. I was really excited to see this relationship and menage develop. And then...after Mikeh's were shows up, it just kind of slid downhill. We missed a YEAR!? And how can a menage skip over the DP scene!? The book alluded to it, you know it happened, but it was just not there! And ...more

This was a hot short read! Mikhal and Zach leave their pack when it becomes apparent that Mikhal is showing more Alpha tendencies. They set out on their own to form a new pack, but instead decide to join the human world. From the moment they both lay eyes on Taylor, their inner beasts start to rage for dominance to claim a mate. This causes some pretty hot scenes, but acting out on their mutual desires for one another takes a decidedly different twist a year later. With two Alpha's and their sub ...more
