This series just keeps getting better and better. This book was a ton of fun. Gideon is an Alpha wolf who just wants to have fun. Ryder is out to make it on her own. Neither counted on the other or any help from Eros and Chloe. It was such fun watching them find each other. I guess they learned that love finds you when you least expect it.

Gideon is the third in the Mystic Zodiac series. It is a standalone book that introduces the wager that Cupid and Chloe, one of the Fates, is having over getting couples together. This challenge is getting nature loving and outdoorsy Ryder together with Gideon.

Only it’s not really good outdoors weather and there is a very short window to get them together, just days. It’s a good thing that Gideon is a wolf shifter who needs to find some alone time in the woods. Oh, and a little teensy bit conve

What a thoroughly enjoyable read! A bet between Eros and Chloe jumpstarts the meeting between Gideon and Ryder. Not having read the first two, I must say the chemistry between Eros and Chloe was as hot as that between Gideon and Ryder. I look forward to reading more about those two deities. Gideon, Alpha of the Keystone Predator pack, goes running wolf through the Grand Canyon before the hiking season starts, coming off of a relationship breakup. Meanwhile Ryder, who works for her family's sport ...more

I received an advanced reading copy for an honest review. Some people are destined to be together, Gideon Decker, the Alpha of the Keystone Predator Pack, finally has a chance to get away and plans a week long run through the Grand Canyon before the tourist season arrives.
Ryder Sparks, a tough, opinionated woman, has the same idea, and is on a four day hiking trip. She's always had a penchant for wolves, and when she comes face to face with one at a stream, instead of running for the hills, she

Shifter love is just what we need!

Book 3 in the Zodiac Series was just as entertaining as the first two. While the story is a series, each book can be read individually.
Eros and Chloe started the story out with an intro onto who the newest pairing would be. The continuous banter between the two is entertaining. The two are fighting their feelings toward each other and it makes every meeting between them very tension filled.

ARC Review:

If you love books about shifters and finding their mates you will love this book.

We start off meeting Eros the God of Love and Chloe one of the Goddesses of Fate they are on month Three of Twelve trying to mate couples. This is book 3 you don’t have to read in sequence as I have done but it will help with the prolog. There is some major sexual tension between the gods I can’t wait to see how that plays out hehe.

After convincing her family that she would be ok going on a solo hike for

ARC given to read for an honest review.
Part of the zodiac series- a 12 month bet made on Mount Olympus between fate and the god of love and desire, this was a really great read about a sweet romance between characters Gideon a wolf shifter and Ryder, even if Gideon didn't want to find love he wasn't turning away from his fated mate. Ryder’s character is the one I really loved, she jumps in with both feet and willing to trust that crazy feeling called love. I enjoyed this read because of the ch

I was lucky enough to receive an A.R.C. of this but that will not colour my review in any way.

Ryder is looking forward to getting away from her overprotective family and into the wilderness around the Grand Canyon for a few days hiking. Being the only girl can be stifling at times, and she so loves the outdoors.
Gideon is the pack Alpha and has just dumped the she wolf who was pestering him to take her as his mate. He needs to run as a wolf for a while to clear his head.Their first meeting i

This is the first book I have read by Brandy Walker and let me tell you this, she has a wonderful sense of humor that is apparent in her characters especially Ryder. I lost count how many times I snorted at the conversations Ryder and Gideon would have. A world in which shifters are known to exist and humans may be mate material. Ryder obviously is with her calm response to Gideon. Now she needs to convince him that not only can she accept his shifter side and being his mate, she can embrace bei ...more

I haven't read the others in this series and was very amazed at how easy this was to follow. I love the characters and how everything goes down. The feelings and the obstacles that happened. This author is amazing and made me want to finish reading as soon as possible. I am very glad the author sent this to me for an honest opinion and my opinion is I will be letting my friends know about this and that they need to read it.

I most say I truly enjoyed reading about Gideon a wolf shifter and Ryder his human mate. And they meet in the woods,where she was on a 5day hike by herself for the first time. And Gideon was letting his wolf run free. Ryder see's this beautiful wolf drinking at the same stream that she's filling her water bottles.So she try's to get closer to the wolf that is Gideon for a better look but then something happens to her as she moves closer. A most read! ...more

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't the typical shifter finding his mate. You have two gods Chloe and Eros seeing if Chloe can make love matches with those who Eros gives her each month called the mystics. I loved the reaction of when Ryder finds out Gideon is a wolf shifter. I love the interaction between the two families. There is a lot of heat between Gideon and Ryder. It was a fascinating journey watching Gideon who didn't want to find his mate meet his match in Ryder. ...more

I think I'm on team Eros (don't tell Chlotho). As for Gideon and Ryder they are adorable and I love Ryder's reaction to Gideon and what his life is all about. Kinda bummed Ryder didn't get further into her hike but if she had to be interrupted this was the best way to go. Good story, can't wait for next month! ...more

Well when gods get bored and want to play they do. Lucky for Gideon and Ryder it works for them. It would be nice if a book was done on all the siblings finding their mates to and seeing what happens with Ryder and Gideon as well.

No desire to see

Our have no desire to see how this ends. The characters are just not appealing and the gods could have been so much more interesting. Ending this at two books.

Running wild is all Gideon Deckard has planned. Ryder Sparks is on a week’s dream vacation. A run in with a massive grey wolf changes all their plans in this delightful paranormal romance.

Gideon is the Alpha of the Keystone Predator Pack and all he wants is a little time to be his wolf. Ryder wants a little time away from her overprotective family. The reader can’t help but be charmed by the strong compelling characters as fate steps in and sets them on their journey to happily ever after. The c

I thoroughly enjoyed this story!
Combining gods, goddesses, humans, and shifters all in one intrigued me so I thought I would check it out. I was not disappointed!
The basic layout is Cupid and the goddess of fate are meddling and helping to create true love matches. This is a series but each book focuses one one couple so you get a HEA. This book was about Gideon an alpha wolf shifter and Ryder an outdoors loving human. They meet unexpectedly and awkwardly in the Grand Canyon and the sparks fly.

I did receive this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Gideon and Ryder are the third couple to be matched in Brandy Walker’s Mystic Zodiac Series. I loved this match. I have really enjoyed this series but this couple is my favorite to date. Gideon and Ryder are a perfect mix and balance to each other’s strengths, their chemistry and attraction is instant and hot. Gideon is the alpha shifter, not looking for love or a mate till he catches the scent of Ryder then his world tips
