Start your review of Alaska, with Love (Assassin/Shifter, #2)
Josh Montgomery is a member of an elite assassin team of the government, and his life turns upside down when he rescues Mark Patterson from a sadistic drug lord.

Till this moment he considered himself straight, but now, feeling insanely attracted to Mark, he is really starting to question that.


“Huh?” Josh was lost in those deep blue pools. God, he was drowning and he didn’t care.

Yes, it is insta-lust between the two, but not insta-love! Their relationship develops slowly, and it takes six

There's nothing wrong with the story, but it's superficial and trope-filled frothiness doesn't suit my palette. Even as a mindless marshmallow read it just doesn't hit the right notes for me. I literally forgot I was reading this book at the 75% point and came back to finish it for a challenge. I think this is the first time with this author and we don't meld.

(O.o) *shrugs*
I've read the first book in this series and it was oke....I found this one mildly better. The editing is still very bad and the MC's are pretty cheesy. That's oke if you like cheesy, but I don't. I like my MC's a bit more badass and manly. For me the cheese and sweetness was a bit too much. I still think these books are missing something....hopefully that something will develop in the next books.

The characters were very like-able. I liked them better than Mateo and Riley from book 1 (yes they

Not even Greg could pull this one out.

It has good stuff:

big alpha that's possessive and protective

big guy bottom


action storyline



It was instalove on steroids.

If I had to hear one more time how beautiful and/or hot they thought the other one was...

I get it. I got the memo and the flyer and the handout from the class you guys taught and I even saw the billboard.

You're hot for each other and you've both got permawood.

Belens Audio Book Review

Someone told me this series is like crack. They're not entirely wrong. It's really, really hard to stop once you start...except maybe with an intervention. But who needs that?

Once again the story features a badass assassin who only kills truly bad guys. This time the assassin rescues a doctor from a horrifying situation. Trigger warning: Rape.

Greg Tremblay, under his Greg Boudreaux alias, narrates this story just as wonderfully as expected. Seriously though? One of the only reasons I've given

3.5 Stars

As soon as Josh Montgomery spotted Mark through his rifle scope, he knew. His whole world was about to change.

Josh Montgomery is part of an elite squad of assassins working for the government. Sent in to take down targets, blow shit up, and rescue civilians whenever possible. After Mark Patterson is pulled from a world of hurt and torture, Josh is assigned / volunteered to protect Mark through his recovery. But Josh can’t stop fantasizing about the beautiful man in his protection. All

3.5 on this one. It's a little far fetched, from Mark wanting sex after being sexually abused by his captors for months, to Josh all of a sudden being ok with and wanting to be gay. And even though they take things slow, there is a lot of sex. However, this series is quickly growing on me. I love the action/adventure assassin part and am really looking forward to the paranormal aspect, which we finally catch a fleeting glimpse of when Dakota turns into a man at the very end.

No secret that I loved Military, alpha, wolves, beautiful men in my M/M books.
This one have it all.
It's started with sad story about Mark, and I felt hurt for him.
Thank God Sandrine put my broken heart back together again after 'that' horrible moment of Mark's life with lots and lots of love from Josh and Dakota (the wolf, our next hero) in Alaska.
I loved Josh Assassin's family bonding, and I met Riley and Mateo again!
Can't wait to read about that sweet wolf Dakota and Sam!!!!
Well done

Ugh... I just didn't dig this one like the first one. Still going to try the next one though since I can get it on Kindle Unlimited.
So this is a thing I did I decided to get the first 6 books in this series because and narrated by Greg Boudreaux (or Greg Tremblay) so I'll do a bit of a ramble about the first 6 books when I get to the last one that I listened to which was 'For the Love of Caden' I was going to add the cover but apparently GR would rather I didn't so words it is.

So this is gonna be one of those annoying series I’ll probably read till the author stops putting them out. Reason? F@*# if I know, but there something that makes me pick the damn things up time and again.

So by the end of this book (actually before that but I still finished it) I wanted to throw something. I was rolling my eyes like a 10 year old and huffing in frustration. My husband started looking at me with raised

Wow, for a guy that never suspected he was gay (or bi), that was the easiest coming out I've ever witnessed. Josh went from questioning his sexuality to being out and introducing Mark as his boyfriend in about a week. I dunno, I'm thinking this series is just not for me :(

The second in the series and you realize the author is building her world, adding characters and situation. The story of Josh and Mark is not so different from Mateo and Riley, they actually share the same cabin the previous couple did, the main difference is that, while in the previous couple Riley was playing straight, but well aware to be attracted to men, for Josh this is the first time he has real feelings for a guy.

Truth be told, Josh is not so “unwelcoming” to this feelings, sure, he is

I did enjoy book one and was looking forward to book two, but as other reviewers have stated this one just was yucky. It's a "healing c*ck" story or how one man can heal another man's brutal rapes with his magical penis. I would have stopped reading when Josh kept getting erections when poor Mark was in a hospital bed recovering from being raped, but I wanted to find out when the shifters appeared. I really am all about the shifters.

Another poor sub-plot was the under-developed issue with

An assassin and a relief doctor walk into a bar…. No, just kidding. In this second installment of the very exciting Assassin/Shifter series, Josh is as straight as an arrow, never thought of a man as attractive, although he has no prejudices against gay people, he just always figured it wasn't for him. Until he sees Mark through the scope of his sniper rifle and all Josh wants to do is rescue him and protect the most beautiful man he's ever seen. In this book the author is pairing an assassin, a ...more

That was so freaking sweet and so very romantic. I know! It is a book about assassins! I don’t know what else to tell you, it was very romance driven. I was very excited for the next book in this series. Josh being the straight guy and all made me even more excited. Hearing that the Shifter part of the story would be introduced in this one just added to my already silly excitement. Now, I was a bit nervous as well. I knew this one was going to touch on something I am very uncomfortable with and ...more

Audiobook this time around, Josh's voice sound silly, I din't know if I should have laughed or rolled my eyes.
not as enjoyable as the ebook ..3 stars

Another great sequel, although with a huge issue that it wasn't handle properly by the author I'm afraid.
Mark was kidnapped, tortured and raped for quite a long time, and when he met Josh after he saved him from the kidnappers, Mark had an erection just looking at Josh ????
I would assume a person who goes through this ordeal, the last thing in

Very unlike Book 1, IMO. Very sappy and corny and nothing much really seems to happen, except Josh and Mark turn into a pair of girls right after the rescue. Actually, the things I enjoyed most were the cameo by Riley and Mateo from Book 1 and the introduction of the wolves for the later books.

Was glad when it was all over.

Jeez. Don’t hold back on the torture. (Sarcasm.)
And, um, why do we need a repeat of the exact same scene the previous book ended on? I already read that, thank you.

Yeah, this did not start well for me.
In one of the first new scenes Mr Assassin Guy watches his future love interest being raped. And does nothing but watch. Yeah, I suppose acting rashly might endanger the rape victim (and not only the assassin), but I was still pretty sore about that at the time. I mean the inability to do anything
Chris, the Dalek King
yeah...after two of her books, I think it is fair to say that Sandrine Gasq-Dion is just not the author for me. I found this book incredibly sophomoric. Putting aside the fact that Mark's reaction to being kidnapped and raped for three months seem highly unlikely, I just found the repetitiveness of the writing to be downright annoying. I may not have a photographic memory, but I also am perfectly able to retain info from one scene to another. I lost count of how many time that we were told that ...more

This is the second book in the series and it's Josh's story. Josh is an assassin for the government and takes his job really seriously, unlike his women - one night stands for him! But he is lonely and wants something....On a mission, under mortifying and horrific circumstances, he meets the future love of his life. He knows immediately that his life will never be the same again! The author then takes us on a sensual emotional filled journey of how two people find love, that neither were ...more

I liked the book. The characters are fun and funny. The action is good as well. I did struggle though with the believability factor. I don’t believe Josh suddenly liking guys, even if he had hid even from himself that he was gay, wouldn’t have caused him more issues than it did. I also don’t think Mark would have recovered as quickly as he did from 3 MONTHS in captivity. None his behavior after is what I think would normally be how someone behaves after a trauma like that. Mark’s also a doctor, ...more
2.5 Stars - In someways it was better than A Marked Man, there was less sex - at least in the first half - and both characters stayed true to their personalities. I just never really connected with them. It was instsa-love, which is fine to make a connection, but I just felt they really had nothing in common to keep them together other than they both thinking the other beautiful. There was the "magic penis" (as I saw someone refer to it) where they magically never got soft and came a gazillion ...more

Better than the first one, even if the plot was slightly weaker. I didn't understand the need to connect the ex to the sadistic kidnapper, or why all of that was necessary. *shrug* Also, I'm pretty sure that a simple phone call to a supervisor to check in as "okay" isn't SOP for Doctors Without Borders; if it is, I'd like to think they would have a code word or phrase for an aide worker to use alerting the organization to a possible hostage situation.

I have to admit that I'm not seeing what others obviously are in this series. I read this because it was part of my challenge for this year, but I struggled through it to be honest.

Like the first one, I had trouble connecting with the MC's. I found their "voices" unrealistic. Josh is supposed to be a battle-hardened assassin, yet he comes across as sappy and sickening sweet. Mark, a doctor has been kidnapped and brutally raped for three months, yet this seems to have very little impact on his
