Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

review posted on Got Fiction? Book blog

I think this is landing on the DNF shelf. I don't hate it, don't get me wrong, but for a book that sounds so great, and practically screams my name (fated mates, PNR, special ops, shifters), it's really a dud.

100 pages in, and I may finish it down the road, but for now, I'm annoyed at the heroine who's a narrow-minded, impulsive in the bad way, and rude, and the hero who's so emo and whiny that I genuinely don't like either character.

So, yeah. I'm not

In a Nutshell: This is an average paranormal romance that series fans will enjoy well enough.

Why I Read this Book: I’ve passively enjoyed this series.

What I Liked: I’m a total sucker for world building and I like it in this series. The Alpha Pack is a group of Navy SEALS who were changed into shifters and are now an elite fighting force against evil paranormal things. I love all the different men and their roles within the unit. I also like the extra people,

My favourite of the series so far, absolutely loved this book, Zan and Selene are fabulous...
I have to say the next book is possibly going to overtake this one though, I'm excited to read about Nick!

Audio version

This was just ok. Insta-love and lot's of cheesy dialogue. Not one of my favorites in this series. I'm not sure if the series is getting worse or my tastes have just changed a lot since I read the first book.

I did this on audio and the narrator was just ok. Her "sexy" voice was not good. She emphasized things in weird ways at weird times. Not horrible but not great either.

3.5 Stars

Zander and Selene are bonded together accidently when Zander takes a bite out of her, while in wolf form, fending off her attack on Nick, his commander. Selene is hell bent on taking revenge out on her father, Nick, after being brought up to think he killed her mother. As a reader it is evident there’s more to this story, but it took a while to get to the truth. I wanted these two to get to the truth and repair their father/daughter relationship, seeing as the lies caused them both so

This is book five in J D Tyler's Alpha Pack series and it was lovely to catch up with those guys. These are ex navy seals each with unique Psychic powers who were viciously attacked by werewolves whilst serving in Afghanistan and now they perform covert operations for the government. The Alpha Pack are the ones sent in when any paranormal crime is detected but theirs is not an ideal life . Hidden away these men may still be fighting for their country but they are also fighting for their own ...more

In Cole's Redemption the great evil (for now, a new one is sure to come along) has been contained and life should be starting to get back to normal. Whatever normal might actually be... of course for the Alpha Pack there are still a myriad of supernatural evil to be contained. Their latest case involves a series of rogue vampires acting very oddly..

Zander Cole is one of the men who had been turned supposedly by rogue shifters in Afghanistan. It gets even

My Review:
I listened to most of this book in audiobook form. Honestly, I don't think I should listen to this author's stories in audio. In this particular book, there seemed to be quite a bit of lovey-dovey schmaltz-y style talk which I normally don't enjoy, but it's 10 times worse when listening to audio...to me, anyway. I honestly don't think it would have been near the aggravation to me if I had simply been reading the book and I would have given this book a slightly higher rating.

Because I

It's been a long time since I wanted to read a paranormal book but lately I've been wanting to. So when I had the opportunity to pick something to read instead of having to read something, that's what I picked. I'm so glad I did.

This book is part of a series but it's the first one I've read. It worked as a stand along, though. The whole team of SEALS that were changed together have had their own books and they were part of this one. I enjoyed meeting them and never felt confused. The author does

This is the first book by Tyler I've read. I really liked the world. The Alpha Pack is interesting and I enjoyed learning about the different members. The suspense plot was interesting and kept the story moving forward.

Something about the romance bothered me. I can't quite put my finger on what. Maybe it was how fast they fell into each other without seeming to have much of a connection? Or maybe it was the fated-mates thing? I'm not entirely sure. I just had a hard time connecting with that

I love the Alpha Pack! JD Tyler continues to write fasinating storylines, the characters are immensly entertaining. Unlike several authors we continue to hear about members of the Alpha Pack and their mates who's stories have been told but the characters put in more than just an appearance or receive only passing mention.I can only hope she continues to deliever more of the same

Digital Edition Actually

Zander Cole was warned to not heal others while recuperating from injuries he sustained in Black Magic. But being a Healer, he's continued to help others and now his life is in jeopardy because of it. Zander is so despondent about this development that he contemplates

This is unique series!!! I would love a novella of Kai's birth from Kalen's POV!! He is my fave!!!

Wish there had been a little less sex and more getting to know each other on this book. Loved the carryover of the white wolf and who she was.

For the series future.. I hope Noah has a twin sister!!! I'm just not a fan of M/M romances.

Zan has been such a vital part of the Alpha Pack team since the beginning and his personality and care of his friends made him easy to like. I was so glad this poor guy was finally getting his story after all that has happened to him. At first, it seems like life is dealing him another blow when he finally encounters his bondmate. She is nothing like he imagined, but she is more than he could have ever hoped for since she has the power to save him.

The story opens with Zan contemplating the fact

Wow! So not where I saw this book going. First I absolutely love Zander, and Selene comes across as this evil witch. In reality she's just an emotional mess from her childhood. Zander is the perfect mate for her. I really hope their story doesn't end here. Also what's to become of Blue? Man he deserves some happiness.

Ahhhh I've finally read JD Tyler! I'm totally smitten with her Firefighters (as Jo Davis) and have been dying to try this series and Sweet Mary. Cole's Redemption was fantastically fun! Accidental matings, betrayals, revenge and worlds being rocked. Vampires, Shifters, and interesting Psy talents. Yes. Yes, please!



The quick of it is that the Selene...is going to kill her father. He's a bastard and abandoned her and she want's him dead. But the Fates are a bitch and instead she ends up mated to

This review also appears on Pretty Sassy Cool.

This book is the fifth in Tyler’s Alpha Pack series and the first one that I’ve read. The premise is fantastic. A group of Navy Seals with some paranormal abilities have been turned into wolf shifters, who work as an undercover arm of law enforcement, protecting humans from paranormal bad guys. In Cole’s Redemption we get the story of Zander Cole, the Pack’s healer, who has suffered a grievous injury in a prior battle that has left him with

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’

Selene had loved her father as a young girl until he disappeared after her mother’s death. She had been told that he was responsible for the death of her mother and since then she has lived to take revenge on her father. The only trouble is that her bondmate works with her father as a member of the Alpha Pack and is sworn to protect his brothers.

Rushing in, he hit the wolf from the side and sent them both skidding across the ground. Immediately, he leaped on the

I haven’t read this series in some time. I’ve read all the books, but I was never in a hurry to read the next one. That doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy them, because I did. So one day last week, I couldn’t find anything I wanted to read so I went onto my Amazon Wish List (how I keep track of current and upcoming books I want) and saw Cole’s Redemption. I realized I hadn’t read the series in quite some time, so I bought it. I’m glad I did because it was just as good as the others I have read.
