Dammit, just how many toes was she going to have to stomp on before people realized she was a Delicate Freakn’ Flower?

Naomi doesn't want to follow tradition and settle down with a violence-loving, chest-thumping shapeshifter. She grew up in a household with five testosterone-laden brothers, where none of the dishes ever matched, the ugly-as-sin furniture could withstand an

Is the spelling of Freakn' an American thing? Did everyone just wake up one morning and decide that they'd forgotten how contractions worked? Legit question. Is this some localized version of it as opposed to Freakin'?

My partner actually really liked this book. I must admit there was a lot less to complain about than I thought there would be. The main character was all aggression and sass. Instead of treating her bitchiness as a problem to be cured, people in the book embraced it and saw it as a
HA!! Funny smut!
Hey, don't judge me. I read all kinds of stuff. I'm an equal opportunity reader. As for, you know, talking to other people.... well....

So, a little shifter smut was a fun diversion. And, a menage shifter-romance? It was like two times the fun!

Sexually Oblivious Rhino is right. I would prefer Creme Brulee to two men also. Although I should get TWO Creme Brulee's to make it more fair. It's a good trade-off.

In this story, we have Naomi, a wolf-shifter, who finds her mateS in Ethan,

Ethan and Javier are shifters and best friends. Their friendship goes back eleven years to when they started playing lacrosse together in college. Now they are highly sought after professional lacrosse players.

Ethan is the quiet, gentle giant, kodiak bear. He does hope to fall in love some day. Unfortunately for Ethan, a lacrosse pass he failed to catch has just knocked a woman in the stands unconscious. Fate ha

This Delicate Freakin’ Flower, gets not only one shifter but two and one of them the bear, let me tell you he is packing something huge. LOL. Oh my, this story takes you down Naomi’s path of wanting a non-chaos world. She want to mate with a human, so when she finds her shifter mate by surprise it freaks her out. Then she finds she has not only one but two shifter mates, well needless to say she leads these two hot shape shifters down a wicked path because she wants no part of it. The thing she ...more

This was just okay for me.

(Needed it for a reading challenge.)

At first, some of the humor was working for me, but, soon enough, I could feel my rating slipping as I went. Let me be clear that I don't have a problem with smart, tough heroines who can kick ass, totally own their bitch side, and wield it when necessary. Hell, some of my favorite heroines fit this mold. But they need to have good reasons for their actions and know their own minds.

Which brings us to Naomi. *si

I blame this book for my last sleepless night. I had too much fun reading it. Of course, I knew what would happen but I enjoyed seeing how mean Naomi, the main character, could be to practically everyone around her. She was incredibly blunt and at times cruel but it was so hilarious. Naomi is my hero! The entire thing had me snickering and laughing aloud much more than is common for these types of books.

I had been meaning to read something by Langlais for awhile since she kept popping up on my

Holy hotness!! You may want to read this with a fan on you or have your husband close As with every book I have read from Eve you get a spunky girl, hot men, fun, adventure and some great ol' sex!!

I really enjoyed this book and not only for the sexy scenes. You get 2 shape-shifters both destined for one feisty wolf. Most wolves would love to find their soulmate but not her. She tries to fight it and the men try to prove that she needs them. We get a lot of built up sexual tension. But t
I read my first book by Langlais, Wickedest Witch, last month and thought it was a pretty decent paranormal erotic romance. So when I had the opportunity to get my hands on another one of her books I was like, hell yeah! Delicate Freakn' Flower follows Naomi, a self-proclaimed delicate flower. Even though she herself is a shifter, she doesn’t want one for a mate. She wants a normal, intelligent and rich pacifist human for a husband. But fate tells her wants to kick rocks when it gives her not on ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of Paranormal Romance who love shifter stories with HEAT!
Okay short and sweet to start, this was funny/outrageously sensual/quite honestly a very fun reading experience!

When Delicate Freakn' Flower first came to my attention first thought was that I had to get a copy to read for myself! However being that not only have I bought too many real books as well as digital ones in the past few months kept putting off getting it. Then came the blog blitz giveaways hosted by The Bookish Snob Promotions and the giveaway by Tishia at Paranormal Opinion Blog on

This was one great, funny, raunchy, must read book. Even if you are squeamish about the whole menage factor, don't be. This is the book to get your feet wet with, try it and you'll be an addict. For full review go to http://www.yougottareadreviews.blogsp...

A nice little novella. It felt complete in itself. Many times stories feel shoe horned into the shorter format. I'd have been happy if it were longer but it didn't need to be. This one was all there. The writing was fresh, amusing and well done. The shifter guys were hot and sweet and there was enough detail to set the world up with out bogging the story done or making you wonder huh? I will definitely try more by this author.

Comical & full of smut this book certainly entertained. I'd reccomend it to anyone who wants a light read & doesn't mind an easily solved mystery. I rate it 5 stars. It was a fun read.

Holy COW! This book NEEDS to come with a warning label. Oh wait, it does *rereads "this is a hot threesome story..."* Well it needs to include that the sexiness and intensity between Naomi, Ethan and Javier is so HOT that if you're not swooning, you're hosing off the bed sheets! I absolutely loved this book and it's another winner for Eve.

There's a reason why Eve is an author that's an auto buy for me. I don't even have to read the blurb or see the cover to know I'll enjoy every word. That says
Naomi is a wolf shifter. Growing up in a shifter household means lots of pups, lots of fighting... Which means that pretty things break, and Naomi likes pretty things. She even refers to herself as a delicate flower and she's determined to find herself a nice stable human to settle down with so she doesn't have to worry about her breakable possessions.

The last thing she wants is a shifter mate, they're just too violent and insensitive to her needs. Then fate delivers a low blow to her head, lit

Hands down shifters are my favorite Other creatures to read and Eve Langlais writes some of the most hottest domineering shifters I've read.

Delicate Freakn' Flower features the most interesting kind of characters. Naomi who is looking for a quiet man to live a quiet life yet mouthy herself I don't how she desired quiet at all. Naomi's brothers.... who I'm quite eager to get in the middle of. =D Naomi's parents who seem to have a story of their own. Lastly, the lacrosse buddies. Ethan and Javier.

My Opinion:
I have only read a few shifter books. I am so glad I read this one. This book was a don’t want to put you down book. In fact I read it in less then two days. I totally enjoyed the chase of Naomi. I loved the way that Eve wrote this tale with two shifter mates. It didn’t seem at all confusing or wrong. I loved it! I will be looking at more books by Eve. I have seen reviews and such about this book and it’s author and I am sorry I didn’t give her a chance sooner. I simply fell in love w

This book was so stupid. It's about three shifter's: a wolf female, a jaguar male and a bear male. Fate decides they are all to be mated. Naomi, the female, is a brat, always screeching that she's a "delicate freakn' flower". Up to 70% of the book is her horny for the guys, but not giving in to being mated to them, even though everyone who is a shifter knows that fate choose. So she pouts, yells, acts like a child etc etc. Even the sex wasn't that hot. You'd think a three some would illicit some ...more
3.5 stars

Just OK for me...I just couldn't connect with Naomi. She was kind of annoying in her determination to not mate with any shifters. Her reason seemed very silly to me...she doesn't want them to fight and break her stuff!!! Come on...

I did, however, like Ethan (the big teddy bear) and Javier (the sexy jaguar). They all felt and knew that they were fated mates. They just had to convince Naomi to get with the program.

I have a dirty secret. As much as I genuinely enjoy the shapeshifters genre, I only read it to get me out of a reading slump. They are just so fast passing and so amusing, with the classic drama, nothing too thick. However, I've found myself enjoying immensely the past two books I've read, just because I want to and not because I need their help.

Naomi is a wolf-shifter, whose life has always rotated around chaos because of her lycan family. Now a grown-up, Naomi wants nothing but peace and cryst
This was a really good story. I usually really enjoy Eve Langlais books but wasn't sure about this one but I'm glad I tried it. It was a very enjoyable read.

Naomi grew up in a household of shifters and hated it. Her 5 brothers broke just about everything she ever had and fought over ever little thing and she doesn't want to live with that all her life. She decided that she'd find a human to marry and not even try to find her mate. I like Naomi and I wasn't sure if I would at first. She does have

Naomi wants a calm normal human husband to spend the rest of her life with in a quiet house where she does not have to worry about her precious baubles getting broken. That said she wants to spend her adult life completely opposite of what growing up in her family home full of brawling shifters was like. She wants to be treated like the delicate flower that she sees herself as being. That is so not what Naomi is. She’s tough and can handle herself in any situation. She just doesn’t want chaos i ...more

I love Ms. Langlais' humor. And her female characters. They are all kick-ass, take-no-prisoners strong, but melt when the right man comes along. Such was the case with Naomi. She's a wolf shifter, and because of the chaos in which she was raised (her brothers constantly brawl and tear up the house), she wants to marry a human and have a nice, "calm" existence.

But fate has different plans. She goes to a lacrosse game with her best friend (she doesn't like lacrosse), and gets pegged in the face w
After owning this book for 'freakn' ever I finally read it. I didn't think it was as funny as another Eve Langlais book I recently read (Bunny and the Bear), but it was entertaining and I am kicking myself wondering why I waited so long (unfortunately it is probably because all the other books are not free (like this one when I got it) or not on Kindle Unlimited).

Omg - first off - first time reading a novel by Eve and she has drawn me in, and hypnotized me into having her as my fav author!!

This book is funny, mythical and sexually steamy. The banter is amazing, the guys are fucking hot!!

Who wouldn't want 2 hunks destined to b theirs? (um helloooo, show me where i can sign up!! lol) But ofcourse our delicate freakn' flower had to be difficult - even when she was shaking with horniness LOL. I enjoyed the losing battle she fough

An adorable, funny, and entertaining shifter menage. The guys were hot and delicious, hello...lacrosse players! What's not to like about that? Naomi was a snippy beleaguered younger sister who just had too much of BS testosterone and paints all shifters with the same brush. Mistake. Big mistake. Ethan and Javieer are the quiet controlled sort of dominant male, which when you take into consideration their shifted form makes a lot of sense. Well thought out characterizations of all and an interest ...more
No literary masterpiece but a steamy and funny read. I contemplated 3.5 stars but I'm too irritated by the spelling of "freakn" and the sheer amount of times the heroine says the word "cleft". Expand your vocabulary and sort your punctuation out Little Miss Delicate FREAKING Flower.

3.25 stars, a cute sexy shifter romp. The MC doesn't want to date any fellow shifters. Naomi is a wolf shifter, from a big family and abhors the violent and raucous animal side. She ends up going to a lacrosse game and finding not 1 but 2 mates, in Javier & Ethan. Hijinks & hilarity ensue, leading to an entertaining story.
