The mystery, action, romance that are woven together to give you something to delve your heart, mind and soul into. Steven King is a black or white author; you either love his work or you do not understand the complex horror novels he gives us. Manda Mellett gives us that as an author. Start with book one (you can check out my review for that one as well), you really need to start with the first. These are not your lazy Sunday afternoon romance novels.They are words, sentences, pages full of mystery, action, love, I cannot even think about the BDSM scenes (too much while I am at work) and sex you can feel, smell and taste. You are there, you are sucked in to the very end.. until you realize damn that was some other woman, not me. It will rock your world. Do not hesitate to read Blood Brothers books one and two, then you will be in my shoes waiting with zero patience for book three! - See more at: http://www.theromancereviews.com...more
Wow what a rush! Love a good erotic story? It is within these 400 pages. Like a little bit of drama and mystery? STOLEN LIVES offers this as well. AppWow what a rush! Love a good erotic story? It is within these 400 pages. Like a little bit of drama and mystery? STOLEN LIVES offers this as well. Appreciate a good fairytale romance? Yep that's here too. A great fable, absolutely. To offer all of these wrapped up in a sweet package is exactly what Manda Mellett gives you.
There are a few issues with editing though and I found some parts to be a tad bit rushed. Rushed at 400 pages, you ask? Well again there is so much Ms. Mellet offers in these pages, this is a wild ride for the start of a series. I hope Ms. Mellett offers more descriptive details within the setting of places she takes us to in her next book. Oh, you caught that, I hope, next book... Yes, definitely sign me up!

Wherever you are reading this review, I posted this first on The Romance Reviews and this is the first 5 star rating I have given on this site; it isWherever you are reading this review, I posted this first on The Romance Reviews and this is the first 5 star rating I have given on this site; it is that freakin' good. I wish I could beg Ms. Sheppard to just concentrate on writing this series, because waiting for book 2 will be like having a tooth pulled with no Procaine.
This book is not perfect, but it is addicting, so much so it killed to get in my car to come home from work, because that meant I had to stop reading. RUNNING WILD is the perfect balance for an MC romance series; not too rough, not soft either. It took awhile for the couple to get together, but I love that because I know Ms. Sheppard will give us something different with each book. With Jace and Allie, this was their way.
I wish there was more information on the physical appearance of some of the characters, but even if you can not say what they look like, you feel them and that is more important sometimes. You can sense their personalities, their emotions.
I am also hoping this will be a series that will keep us posted on past couples, because I fell in love with Jace and Allie and I want more of them!
If you have read anything else by Ms. Sheppard, read this and you will know what I mean when I say, this is her series, this is the big one. She nailed it! All of J.L. Sheppard's books are good, but she was made to write this MC series. I do not give 5 stars very often, but RUNNING WILD deserved it. There is no way you will not fly through this spectacular read, so make sure you do not have anywhere to be because you will not want to put this down for a second! ...more
Paranormal at its finest! J.L. Sheppard just received a new fan. I love when authors of paranormal books or series gives us more than one type of paraParanormal at its finest! J.L. Sheppard just received a new fan. I love when authors of paranormal books or series gives us more than one type of paranormal. Witches, demons, angels, shifters and many more are offered in this series. Jacob and Valerie's story was hard for me to put down. When I turned the last page, I was still yearning for more information on other characters. When you can't wait for the next one, that to me makes the best series! I need to go back now and check out Ms. Sheppard's other books! -

This series is here to stay, thank goodness! I actually read the second book in this series first and I stated in that review one of my favorite thingThis series is here to stay, thank goodness! I actually read the second book in this series first and I stated in that review one of my favorite things about this series is that there are many different types of paranormal. These books are all about the couple and romance, hot nail-biting romance.
Many times during paranormal romance books, really any romance genre books, I will comment on the action and mystery that the novels have as well. These books so far do not really have those aspects, that being said, it is a refreshing change. Sometimes you might find yourself saying "just get together already or rush to get to the good parts", but this is not a problem with this series. The good parts are all throughout.
The only reason I rated this 4 stars instead of 5, is the desire to hear more about their gifts. Demons, werewolves, witches, etc. Their strengths and weaknesses and just more about their characters.
This series has so much potential, I do not want to miss anything. Ms. Sheppard could take this in many different directions. Take Larissa Ione, her first Demonica book, Pleasure Unbound, received some really bad reviews that made fun of different things, but as you know, it is now one of the most beloved paranormal series. I will not be making this mistake with Ms. Sheppard and can not wait for more in this series, especially when it comes to one hunky Lycan alpha. So don't waste any more time; start this series and read AWAITING FATE.
