My review of the final version....
A story of Star crossed lovers from an exceptional writer. I've fallen for the softer side of my favorite writer. We still get Gordon action and wit but she shows us in Shooting Stars that romance can be done with emotion and feelings instead of body parts and one liners. Don't miss this strong debut from what I am sure is going to be another epic series from the extremely talented H.D. Gordon (less)

It takes awhile for it to resonate.... and I love that I can keep updates my reviews so lol, here is the new one....
Review from 12/28/12
I am to close to this series so I really can't review it anymore. I work with H.D. Gordon but that started because I was her biggest fan, still am. But I am so close to the series now and I guess I shouldn't review it.
But I also purchased it so I should get to put in my two cents. So here it is....
The is no category or genre that we can properly box or label H.D. Gordon into, she simply is just a brilliant writer who creates the most amazing worlds I can escape to. Whatever the subject matter is I don't mind, as long as Gordon has dreamed it up, I am up for the adventure. Read The Alexa Montgomery Saga if you want an inspiring journey that will make you experience just about every emotion. I laughed (quite a bit), was outraged at our villain, I loved with the characters, and in turn loved them as well. I was completely disgusted and horrified when those were the appropriate situations. The twists and turns and pulse pounding action kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning and I was continually shocked and blindsided. Gordon's unique style of writing keeps the books' pacing where I felt like the ebook page turning feature wasn't turning the page fast enough. And oh boy did I cry with them and for them.
Every single one of H.D. Gordon's books shows her growth as a writer and the continued advancement of the mastery of her craft. I know she would disagree but this saga is a masterpiece. And it's Gordon's denial of that statement, that keeps her books getting better and better. This saga is a true piece of art and you can feel her passion in every word.
I really need more stars to rate her books.
So thank you H.D. for taking a chance and being brave enough to share your unique world with us, I loved every minute of the epic quest.
I purchased this book from the Amazon US site, I also received the beta version from the author in exchange for my honest opinion, I did not receive any compensation for writing this review. And As I said I also work with H.D. Gordon.
Review from 12/18/12 Just finished the beta read
How does she surprise and shock even me?
How is she able to make even me cry?
I'm too close to this series. I can't even review it anymore but this Saga is a masterpiece.
It fits in no category or label I can think of, It is simply H.D. Gordon.
You never know what's going to happen in her world because we find out right after she does. (less)

“I am Chanku, Sebastian. After a run, I really want to fuck. No strings. No ties. I just really, really want sex. Are you up for that?”
He shook himself, and she thought of a big dog coming out of the rain. But then he glanced down at the front of his slacks and raised his head and one eyebrow. “I guess I am.”
Did I get your attention?
As if you didn’t already know already Kate Douglas in one of my favorite authors. Not only is her writing smoldering hot but she is brilliant! Dark Wolf is the second generation of Chanku; The Spirit Wild Series is another Slam-dunk from the queen of erotic novels, Kate Douglas.
I have read along while the first generation met, mated, married, and eventually had children. Now I get to travel along with the pack again in this all new fresh look on their society. This generation knows their heritage and makes no excuses about what they are and what they want.
Lily Cheval is basically the princess of their kind and is all Alpha. She has never meet a man who challenged her and her wolf until Sebastian. Sebastian Xenakis is the son of Aldo Xenakis, a dark wizard that the pack has never trusted. But is Sebastian like his father?
Brutal killings are taking place and all signs point to Chanku. The pack feels like they are being set up and suspect their largest critic Aldo may have something to do with it. But Sebastian seems to be in all the wrong places at the times of the killings.
Lily is torn, she feels the pull to this strong man but if he even Chanku? Humans and Chanku pairs never work out. And something isn’t right with Sebastian, could it be his fathers dark magic or is he playing Lily?
Dark Wolf is a thrilling and sensual dive back into Chanku society whether or nor you have read the first generation or not do not miss this one.
This Book released today Pick it up immediately.
I was provided an advance reader copy by the author for purposes of review, I received no compensation for it.

I don't how Gordon always catches me off guard! Maybe because she keeps me up reading all night. The Rise is a masterful blend of heart racing action, fear, betrayal, and unyielding love.
The Montgomery sisters take us on a dark journey in book 3, more secrets to be discovered, and some one is tested to the brink (and way past) of insanity.
And through it all Alexa's Libra, Kayden, is steadfast in his support of Alexa.
But the Question is what happened to Jackson? Will Alexa learn about his secrets?
Ms. Gordon is a master. Extremely fast paced action, desperation, insanity, loss, and love, she will put you through the ringer in this one. You will feel exactly how she intends you to feel. Some people will die and you can't seen really care and others will make you cry. The series is unlike any other, pure perfection.
I really can't say much more because there are things that I do not want to spoil all the fun!

I usually enjoy books that have creatures of all shapes and sizes in the paranormal world. Add in a tough female lead and a sexy man and you can't go wrong with this short, sexy, and fun read. This is the first I have read from Tiffany Allee and I can't wait to read book 2 and whatever else she writes, she has a new fan!
Thank you to Entangled for providing me with a review copy I genuinely loved this one! You guys rock!(less)

Gripping, thrilling, suspenseful, and a complete masterpiece.
H.D. Gordon continues to surpass what I expect in her books and Joe is no different. Her writing grows by leaps and bounds with every page turning book she writes.
Joe is a quiet clairvoyant that tugs on your heart strings. She says she is no hero but I strongly disagree. With all the hardships in her life I think most of us would end up in the fetal position. While she is nothing like Gordon's heroine Alexa, from the Alexa Montgomery series. She is just as much the warrior, maybe not the trained bad-ass, but a warrior none the less. This quiet girl with a stutter feels responsible for every vision she has and takes it upon herself to do everything in her power to stop her premonitions from coming to life.
This book is written from eight different perspectives so that you get to know every character and silently root for them to make it through the majorly horrific encounter they might face. "The Decider" is the psychopath they will potentianlly face when he decides he will try to accomplish the largest body count ever in a school shooting. "The Decider's" point of view is chilling and I can't believe how real his scenes were, it was truly like seeing into his psychopathic nature. I found myself rooting for every character that this Psycho plans to slaughter. Six of these characters you can identify with, could even be you, and I prayed that they would all make it.
The ending was utterly enthralling and I could not put it down, Gordon's "running scenes" never have I seen anything like this done before, never before have I read anything like this and was absolutely enthralled. If you read any other book this year... read this one. This heart pounding paranormal thriller has it all and it utterly magnificent.
Just stop reading whatever you are reading and pick this up immediately.

Demon Lovers is about two former demons who have a Yin and Yang thing going on and their woman who balances them. This is an erotic series and Kate is the master in this genre. Let the imagination of Kate Douglas take you away on a erotic adventure that no other can match. Her stories always have a helping of story, steam, and emotion that leave you fully satisfied.
Unleashed fits right in with the other 3 books in this series and continues with Locan, Jett, and Addies journey. Except Kate sneaks in some BDSM on us and the trio acquire a hellhound!

First off I have to say ignore the cover. I don't think it fits the story. Ok now onto the good stuff...I really enjoyed this story! I love when we have all types of supernatural creatures into this mix (when it works and this one absolutely works).
