Recommends it for: Fans of shifter stories
If you are looking for a sexy, smart, and entertaining paranormal read built around a world of shifters, vampires, half breeds, and other supernatural creatures pick up Lily. This is the first shifter book that I have read where there is a clear and distinct alpha female with a strong story line. Lily is a wonderful heroine who is strong and determined, but willing to trust and rely on the members of her pack who all have her best interests at heart. Lily has been running from her destiny and hi ...more

Hot, Hot, HOT!!!! This book is like a dream come true for me ... really. I am a HUGE fan of urban fantasy/paranormal. Talk about some hot Alpha wolves, both male and female. If you were a fan of that hot wolf in that blockbuster movie (not naming names), then you will LOVE this. Awesome story line. Amazing character details. Incredibly hot sex scenes. What more could you ask for?

Crazy, rambunctious Lily Blackwood has found herself lost between the man that she aches for. The man that her loins y

Shape shifters are always an amazing genre for me. I think it’s because I love the fantasy aspect of them. Could they be real, or are they all just made up by the writers? R.L. has a way of creating the world that exists in this book and adding the paranormal parts of it.

While this book is written by two separate authors, you can’t tell while reading this story. Their writing abilities work in great sync with each other to where one author stops writing and another starts. The different charac

I'm a huge fan of the paranormal genre, Wolves being my favourite followed very closely by Vampires and Demons. So when I got the chance to review Lily: The Blackwood Wolves Saga #1 I jumped at the chance, I couldn't wait to delve in.

Just by reading the prologue, which gives us a little bit of the Blackwood Wolves' history, I could tell this wasn't going to be your usual hot n steamy wolf romance book and boy, I wasn't wrong!

This book has it all hot sex, hot men, mystery, murder, suspense. This is a new release and I want to give a review without posting spoilers. I will say if you are a fan of the Blackdagger Brotherhood books, then you will love Blackwood Lily! It has a great pace and each scene flows seamlessly to the next. I couldn't read this one fast enough to find out what was waiting on the next page. This was all around hot! 5 Wolftastic Stars! I can not wait to read more from R.L. Kirk

In the sea of wolf shifter and werewolf tales available today, Lily: The Blackwood Wolves Saga stands out and leads the pack. (pun intended!) Lily Blackwood is the fiery heroine who bucked against her destiny to try to fit into the world of humans and have a "normal" life. That stubborn streak ends up putting not only her life in danger, but that of those she cares about the most. Because she's pulled away from her

First, I loved the cover! Love the color and the wolf in the background is great, like danger lurking in the shadows. Though I guess that is the point since there is definitely danger lurking in the shadows for Lily Blackwood. This is the first book in the Blackwood Wolves series and it was awesome! It was an excellent start to the series, it give us enough background about the Blackwood wolves pack and some of the mysticism the

Amidst an age old battle of good vs. evil she must decide between the two of them, the one fated for her or the one that holds her heart.

Blackwood: Lily, the brain child between two authors to make up the dynamic duo of R.L. Kirk is promising to be an amazing voice in the paranormal romance genre. The writing is so smooth I would have never guessed it was two separate minds

I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the author through the Goodreads group, "Lovers of Paranormal". Blackwood: Lily is a book centered on werewolves but the concept is about the heroine finding love in the midst of a war between werewolves and vampires.

This was such a good book, and it had me quickly turning pages in anticipation of finding out what happened next. The characters were set up wonderfully, and now I find myself waiting, not so patiently, for the next book in

I struggled with this book if I am being perfectly honest. It has taken me a long time to finish it. I didn't like all the character flips in the beginning of the book and I didn't think I would be able to finish the book, but around the time that lily, Bryan,Lizzie, and carter go out on the date I started to become attached to the characters.

Just finished Blackwood:Lily

It was pretty good. Anything with shapeshifters I will give a try. Lily is basically royalty. Cousins with Killian, top alpha in the Blackwood Pack. Bryn is her mate. Wallace is her friend. Wallace has known her since her birth. Watched over her and was her lover. Bryn was her pet at one time to watch out for her. Things got out of control, Bryn left so Lily could basically come to age and when he felt that she was ready. He has been summoned to protector her again.

I don't really know where to start... This book was an amazing read. Lilly is a different character but one I really enjoyed reading about. Wallace and Bryn. What a choice. I won't go into too many details so I don't give anything away, but wow what a read.

Very well written and incredibly hard to put down. I couldn't get enough. In fact I want more. A great read for all you paranormal fans out there. I can't really say enough. A part of me wants to gush over every detail, but you will just have

Blackwood: Lily is a book that I enjoyed. I wasn't sure how it would play out, but I was pleasantly surprised. The story line was easy for me to follow. The plot was well thought out. I liked that the main character, Lily, is such a mess. The characters as a whole were good. I thought they were quite interesting. Well written. A good add to your tbr list. Recommended read.
InD'tale Magazine
R.L. Kirk's novel is atmospheric and gritty. Unfortunately, the impact of the narrative is diminished by an overabundance of crude and unlikable characters, particularly the females.

Read full review in the October 2013 issue of InD’tale Magazine.

The world weaved by R. L. Kirk truly blossomed my imagination more than any other book I've read. I loved that this wasn't your typical, "broody sparkle, abs made of young boy flesh" wolves. They were hard core. Lily was simply fantastic as was Killian and yummy Wallace. I can't wait to see more from this author!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review for LoP. Lily Blackwood is from royal blood. Her cousin Killman is the alpha of the pack. Lily lives in the real world and has guardian Wallace. Bryn is Lily soulmate. Their is a killer of werewolves. I highly recommend this book.

This book is about werewolves, which I love, Lily Blackwood is your young un mated werewolf, The Blackwoods are werewolf Royalty. All Lily wants is to live life has normal as possible, as a human. She really wants nothing to do with werewolf poitics, is afraid to be mated, doesnt want to be controlled. Wallace is her bodyguard/friend/lover, he has always been there for her.

OMG MOVE OVER WARD!  Here comes pure BLISS!

Lily is a beautiful women, she is a Blackwood, she is a wolf.  At a young age she was sent to live among the humans with her watchers Mike and Wallace.  Wallace and her over the years have become lovers but never mated…because she has been claimed by someone else.  Only she doesn’t know it yet. 

Bryn is a young wolf of only thirty.  He was Lily’s guardian when they were younger but left her when she was fifteen because he did the unthinkable.  S


Blackwood is a dark tale. Don't expect the loving vampires or werewolves with this story. There are two killers on the loose a vampire and a hybrid and they don't show any mercy to the wolves and humans that fall prey. The story is full of heartache, murder and torture. I like that since the authors add a villain they went all the way and didn't half step.

I like the story but the Blackwood's were so hyped up and I kept waiting and waiting for them to show me what they were made of and they

This one was definitely very dark. It contains scenes or rape and torture. So not for the faint of heart.

It was a fast read but I was very confused at times. There were a lot of characters to remember and just a lot going on.

I really liked all the main characters. Lily, Wallace, and Bryn. The chapters would sometimes alternative different peoples POV's but it was always labeled. Mainly those three but there were a few others thrown in.

Lily is a very independent female that doesn't want to

I'm very choosy when it comes to paranormal / Urban Fantasy books. They are not my normal pick. I have come across some authors that can deliver the story in a way I love and others that I just can't wrap my head around. Bonnie Bliss is one of the ones that does not go way out on the limb and keeps it more real. I love that. This book is action packed not a moment is spared that doesn't have something exciting going on in it. I will say it was a little slow at the start but onc

This is a great book. It is rough and raw but really fun. I really like the characters. Lily is a great Alpha, even if she does not know it, yet. I love seeing her grow into who she becomes. I enjoy Bryn and Wallace, they are a lot of fun. I enjoyed their "alpha male" war. If you want a fun and exciting book with down to earth characters, here is your book!

R.L. Kirk is the brain child of two authors, working together to bring you urban fantasy novels with a kick.

It has been quite a journey to get here, trying to find the right ingredients. A little action here, a bit of flirting there, an intense storyline with characters you want to be with.
Male characters with bite and females not afraid to go that extra mile.

Full length novels are coming, bigger
