This is actually a compilation of three novellas. Two of three heroes were jerks. All three relationships were based on attraction and sex alone. There is nothing else between them. Nothing at all. Still the graphic sex scenes kept me interested enough to finish the three books over 3 months.

All I have to say is... sexy, sexy, sexy. Hot damn! Book two was my favorite for sure. I enjoyed the banter between the two characters and I laughed out loud often while reading that book.

Very short stories

The 1st book immediately jumped into sex, the main characters are Vane and Sarina. who can't seem to keep enough of one another. Sarina bothered me because she came off to me like a whore; but I get it her breeding cycle was crazy.. she did things in the book that threw me off. Sarina is 22 and comes off as if she's 17 she's squeals to much and is selfcontious about herslef, to me that doesn't really rely Alpha matetial. The author could have made a better character for Sarina,

Is it possible to have too much sex in a story?

This trio was an interesting read for me. I found myself actually wondering if there was a possibility to have too much sex in a story. All 3 of these books had more sex than plot and I found myself being disappointed with them. It was overkill and really killed the story line. I would have liked to have seen more plot and less banging for the sake of banging. These guys do it more than rabbits. The sex scenes are done well, it's just distracting fr

Found books 1-3 free.

Don't let the 'freeness' lure me.
These books were nothing but sexfests. The second almost identical to the first with name changes. The editing is none existent, the storyline poor and the characters weak and childlike. In all honesty I'd had enough half way through the first, tortured myself to read the second ( admittedly skimming through most of it), and completely refused to read the third.
If you want pages upon pages of what felt like meaningless sex, with no

The book was pretty good well all 3 were lol. Now wanted to read the others and of course they cost more since got this with my prime, so holding off on the others. In this 2 brothers & 1 sister find their mates and of course lots of adventure to go with it. I know of one more brother but not sure who the others r in the next books. But these were pretty good mostly sex but the story would have been good if more of it little less sex?

I just love this series, because the HOT AND BOTHERED action is EXPLAINED, and makes sense to the arch of the story. Let's get this real clear; some authors think that romance novels are just hanky-panky with a time-period throw in, but there's a lot more to it. This book series is interesting to me because it makes a weird reason for everyone to want to jump each others bones. Also--there is no culture of promiscuity (really) to jump down everyone's throats over in this series. Which, I actuall ...more

This series of novellas was okay for erotica. Not so much for romance and plot. More of an emotional connection between characters and a stronger plot would have benefitted the stories as a whole and helped garner interest for the rest of the series. Based on these three stories, I won't read more of the series.

Not a whole lot of substance here. The series starts off with the heroine dreaming about sex. This is because she is in her breeding cycle / which I guess means that you don't have to be discriminate about your partner because it's all about the mating.
The stories are mainly an avenue to write sex scenes. The writing tends to repeat, there really isn't much of an plot.

This three book set is short stories and very quick reads. Very enjoyable enough to get the next set to read.

These books were so hot, I couldn't put them down! The characters in these books were complicated people! It is great that people with baggage can find true love!

Xrated sex sex sex

These books talk about nothing but sex between characters with barely a story line. Not recommended for under 18 yrs

This is an amazing book, consisting of three
stories. Be warned that T A Grey writes hot erotic stories, so this trilogy is not for the easily offended. The first book "Breeding Cycle" is Sarina and Vale's story, and what a way to start off this series! It is smouldering hot and Vane's scene outside Sarina's window will remain with me for years to come (lol)! This impact shows the true writing talent of the author. The second book "Dark Awakening" is Alison and Rome's book. The author takes us o

This story tells of the brutality a young woman’s father perpetrates towards his own daughter, merely for political gain and stature.

But as all real romantics will agree, love must conquer all, and her one true love will stop at nothing to rescue her from her prison and hold her in his arms; forever.


Dangerous predators come in all guises, as Alison is only too aware; as having a handsome face does not deter from the cruelty some men are capable of inflicting.

It was a decent read. The characters are interesting and you do find yourself caring about what happens to them, but there is a lot of room for improvement. #1. The story tends to jump instead of flow.
#2. There are times when more detail is needed & others where there is to much detail about nothing.
That being said, I still want to read the next book in this series. Book 3 was better than book 2, which was better than book 1. So, most likely book 4 should be better than book 3.

I really enjoyed the fist book but the 2nd and 3rd were just bleh to me. I couldn't really get invested in the characters enough to really connect with them. I found myself skipping pages and pages of gratuitous sex scenes that really didnt' add anything to the story. I've decided that I won't continue with this series given the fact that I only finished the books in the last week and couldn't even remember what they were about. bleh!

These books are erotic and really not for the easily offended. They were really good in a lemony sort of way. If you want a book that you can read and enjoy for what it was meant to be this series is good. There is a good story line and the pace is fairly quick. There was angst and drama but it was quickly tied up and dealt with. Plus there is a great supernatural aspect that is fun and makes plenty of excuses for sex after just meeting a person ;).

Breeding Cycle
This was free. However I was interested in the secondary characters that after reading book one I purchased the rest of the series.

Dark Awakening
I liked both MCs a lot. 3 stars

Wicked Surrender
I didn't see the transformation coming but it made sense since the Ariss storyline needed to be resolved. I wonder if we'll see any hybrids (vampires/lykaens). 3 stars
Shirley Bennett
I very much enjoyed these three books - The stories flowed smoothly from one to the next and would have stood alone easily! I enjoyed the characters -they were well thought out and meshed nicly!! I can see the opportunity for more in this series and will be on the hunt!!
Wicked Surrender was the best one in this 3-book trilogy.
Rounded up from 1.5 stars. Some plotting and editing issues and I think some characters and their backgrounds needed further development. Might have worked better, for me, with shorter stories (less plot/action) or longer stories with less erotica. I found the balance awkward.
