This is Cort's story. I had the honor to beta read for Erica Chilson! *Happy Dance*
Cort's story is quite different from the rest of the series, we get his point of view from past and present. I didn't get Cortez, he confused me in all of the books. I couldn't relate to him, I kept thinking to myself, what in the heck is wrong with him? Why does he do the things he does? The most important question; Is he gay, straight, bisexual? I had no freakin' clue. I will gladly say, I got my answers. :)

There's no denying that I'm a major Erica Chilson fan. The Mistress and Master of Restraint Series have gotten 5 stars from me across the board. The Hunter is no exception!
Up to this point Cortez has protrayed himself as a selfish insensitive prick. HOT AS HELL but still a prick. Cort wanted what he wanted and didn't care who he trampled to get it. This book sheds light on why exactly that is. To say his life has been a walk in the park and he's just acting like a spoiled brat is to say sugar is

Review by Jedi Christy

OMG OMG OMG! Yes Mr. Cort is worth that and more. He's story is EPIC in all forms of the word. I have loved this series from the first word, but now there are two that just are the master pieces and this book is one of those two. Court went through it ALL for his true love, not that most the time said love returned the favor. I am so proud of him at the end of his story. I wanted to jump up and SAY YES and hug him but hmm my 7 year old would wonder why mommy is

Who is the real Cortez, hell Cort doesn't even know, but soon we will find out. After a long while of having writers block, finally his muse emerges from a long slumber. With one word from his muse he is able to open that part of his mind back open.

We all know Cort as the prissy, bitchy, unfaithful lying lover to Ezra, but maybe we really didn't know him. Cort has always been the whipping-boy for everyone including the one he loved above all, while Ezra was coddled and put on a pedestal.

Ok, This is just my own opinion. I have been on the fence and emotionally torn with this book, because even though it was not my cup of tea, it was still very well written like all of Erica's other books. I did not care for it due to all of the romance and sex, but I do understand Cortez being a romantic and sexual being, so in that perspective I can respect it for what it was intended to be. I am happy that Cortez finally found himself and stopped hiding behind his cock, but on the other hand I ...more

I always knew there had to more to Cort that just what meets the eye. Cort has always been on the outside looking in, never sure of his place, and never having anyone to call his own. His family has always been Ezra, and often, Ez has made him feel second best.

Cort's story, told in flashbacks from past to present and back again, give us real insight into what makes Cort tick, and the roller coaster of his life gives us a clear picture of where Cort's insecurities came from.

I have to say that I got a little bit of flashback whiplash with this one. Please don't hate but its the truth. I feel like Ms. Chilson strayed from her writing style with this one.

Don't get me wrong I did quite enjoy this book but I found all the timelines to be quite confusing. Now did I like Cort's story of course, does the story progress, does the game progress YES, which is exactly why I am giving this 4 stars. But I really thought that I would have enjoyed this one more. Feeling slightly

absolutely love this series. Erica is a master mind! I never really got Cort, never really understood what his problem was. I get him now. it was such a heart wrenching story to hear about what Ray did to them when he had them. I was a little nervous going in to this book because it was a past/present read, but I loved it! Its definitely one of my favorites of the series. the love Cort has for his family is just heart warming. The love he has for Ez...I don't even know what to call it. I hope to ...more

Erica you have outdone yourself again. I fell in love with Cortez in Restraint but there have been some times I have wanted to smack him around. I couldn't wait for this book to finally see what he was thinking and acting like he was. Now it makes more sense!, granted I am left with more questions but I have more of an understanding of Cortez. This has made me fall for him all over again. I cannot wait for Ezra's book to find out what the hell is going through that head of his. LOVE THIS SERIES! ...more

It took me a while to get into the Hunter, I past and present sex scenes without a whole lot of plot. Cort has a sensitive side, who knew?! I still don't feel like we got to know him as well as the others.
I can't wait to read Ezra and Grants books now, but I'm confused a bit. I just went back and read restraint and unleashed, having more background, Marcus never acted on his 'true nature'. Also confused reading Ezra's bit at the end of king again, when talking to Syn he calls Ava his firstborn?

“If you love something, you need to fight for it.”

That quote taken from the book is the essence of what this book is about.

The Hunter was lovely to read. It was full of angst, and a love that, well ran so deep that it never stopped flowing. I really enjoyed the book. I cried and I loved and I questioned right along with Cort.

I highly recommend it if you are a fellow lover of the M&M series.

• Note: This book should not be read out of order.

I want to start off by saying that I love, love, love this series. With that being said this book was my least favorite. Don't get me wrong it was still really good, but I guess I just wanted more out of Cort. It was probably because he is such a big part of the other books that he was already filled out as a certain character in my mind and I had a hard time excepting who he really was. Erica Chilson is an awesome author with a great mind for crazy. I always love me some crazy.
