The story had a slow steady pace, the romance didn't really start until about 40%, up until then the leads were working through the details of the hero getting to know the son he just found out about at age six. This is one secret baby story that I didn't mind, she tried very hard to let him know even after he never called her back after a week long fling. I enjoyed the Kiwi lingo but I have to be honest, I had no idea what the author was referring to sometimes (this also includes rugby lingo).
I plan on checking out other books by this author.(less)

The heroine was a gentle kind soul who everyone just loved except for her evil ex who was super super evil. She meets the pack and they love her to death - after one day. All the kids think she is the bestest person in the world after she plays a game of football with them. Barf I have a toothache from all this sweetness.
The heroes meet the heroine and know she is their mate then it's all "we will love each other forever and become a perfect triad and have lots of babies". Cue no angst whatsoever. So they are werewolves? That's fine, the perfect gentle heroine doesn't mind. So you want to put both of your enormous dongs inside the heroine at the same time? Wait - what?
Yeah two wangs in the honey cave. At the same time. Not sexy at all, that just sounds painful and all I can think of are the words loosy goosy.
This book was hard to get through because of the saccharin sweetness and all the unrealistic love fests. I was either bored, annoyed or freaked out by nasty dual wang penetration. (less)

This seems like a ploy to get $15 for a mediocre medieval book (at $5 for each book). There is no freaking reason for this to be a trilogy, it's a wallpaper medieval without a lot of depth to the story or characters. It could easily have been told in one book.
For the story itself, the heroine's inability to talk is interesting but it seemed a bit unrealistic the way everyone understood her so easily. Then they would repeat everything she was "saying" so we would know too. The hero was a tough warrior who came off kind of cold sometimes. I was a little confused at the way the heroine seemed to want a child out of wedlock (getting mad when he pulled out) because I thought that wouldn't be a good situation for her or the baby back then.
So now I have read one third of a mediocre wallpaper medieval and I am supposed to spend $10 and more of my time to finish it. Sorry, no thanks. I wish authors would stop doing this to us readers, I had no clue it was happening in historicals too until I read a few reviews after I already started. (less)

Dr. Catherine Young is a brilliant researcher who is married to her work until her secret psychic gift sends her on a search for Tom "Mac" McEnroe to help her save a man in trouble. Mac finds her and brings her to his secret compound of refugees in the middle of a mountain. He tries to figure out if she is sent by his enemies or if she is what she seems. They quickly fall in love, she makes her place in the secret community and they go on a mission to save a life.
Sigh. So I was hoping this would be the return to the LMR I loved but I haven't seen that since Dangerous Passion. It started out pretty good and exciting, the heroine was taken to the hero's secret compound and there was tension as he was trying to figure out if she was out to get them, as the hero and his friends are on the run from the government. The book is set in the future but even with that I had trouble believing they could built a community home that advanced. Then the book started to go down hill for me when there is sudden insta-love between the hero and heroine, it just came out of nowhere and suddenly they were doing it and thinking of forever - the day after they met. There were the typical LMR tropes of the hero having a blue steeler and being so excited for the super beautiful heroine that he could barely spend the time to undress her let alone do foreplay. The relationship just moved too fast and they went from meeting to true luv forever too quick for me to believe or enjoy.
Another issue I had was the recycling of things from other books - the descriptions of the hero sounded so much like Douglas from Midnight Angel - ugly, knife wound, acne scars, broken nose. The glass scene was a less hot rendition of the scene from Dangerous Passion.
I was kind of freaked out by the thought of people being operated on involuntarily and being giving drugs and treated like guinea pigs, it was creepy. Once again we spent too much time in the villain's head but I guess that is just how LMR is writing these days. I was not a huge fan of the futuristic setting but it was interesting sometimes.
So this book was a mixed bag for me, it had a good beginning then just got rushed along too quick. I will give the next book a shot to see where the series is going.(less)

One of the best new paranormals I have read in a long time! Unique and very interesting world, kind of light on the "romance" but maybe we will see more later? This is YA, the heroine is 16 but she is growing up fast due to the world she is thrust into. Jack was hot but he also ran cold too often, I don't blame her for being confused. Definitely worth checking out!(less)

There were some small editing issues but on the whole I enjoyed reading this angsty book with a nice long hero grovel! (less)
