3.75 Stars....

H was OTT possessive. I loved that. He was awesome.

"Once you tell me you’re mine, that this hot, tight, pussy is mine, I’m going to take you, fuck you, own you, and stamp myself so far inside, you will never forget who you belong to."

Some of the writing seemed a little...immature maybe?? Or needs a better choice of words. I mean come on...
"Yours is the only tightness I want to fuck so hard, I leave skid marks from my cock"

Skid marks? Really?

I don't think I want my man to leave skid marks in my vagina....I'm just sayin'

I love this series and will definitely continue. Hopefully the next one is a somewhat better. I'm also getting a little tired of the whole BBW angle...I don't mind reading stories with h's like that but it seems there's a lot of emphasis put on how the h looks and how she's been so mistreated over the years because of her weight. I love how the H's are possessive and love a full-figured woman but I'm starting to not like how much her body image is talked about..but that's just me.

Well hot damn, what can I say? This books was absolutely fantastic!

We taken on a journey as a shifter instantly connects with a human, his mate. The human gets taken to a alien planet to interact with his world and from there so much happens. After being belittled by other humans for her weight and looks she expects everyone to be like that, shifters included but she soon realises they’re not.

Reading about the torment the main character gets for the way she looks and her weight is heartbreakin

~ 4.5 In the Roar Stars ~

Note: All the books in this series are quick reads with very little plot and an insta-match. They are great if your looking for a little steam and some sexy shifters for an afternoon break.

This PDA series has become one of my favorites that I look forward too. I need something every now and then that does not have a deep plot, that I can just sit back enjoy the short and sweet times.

Karel and Alivia where great together. I really enjoyed that Karel did not pressure Alivia, g~

The Bottom Line
Yep I keep trying. Good idea, still a bit shallow but I liked Karel as a hero, precious little of him really being hot and possessive. Subplot with dying mother was a new twist, even if still not well drawn. I keep coming back for the potential and hoping one day it pays off.
Steph's Romance Book Talk
A need for family, babies, and a mother's love. Karel is the chief security officer for Alyx; however when his mother falls ill he must find his mate before she dies. Alivia wants babies and the love of a family. Gerri overhears Alivia talking about how horrible men are and that she should just get a frozen pop. When Karel and Alivia collide a sweet sexy journey begins.

This specific video review will be included in the August 2018 wrap-up.

Omg I loved it. The author is superb at writing these stories. The last few books are out of this world literally.
I've loved that these books are part of the PDA series, buy you can read them as standalone, but once you read one you are going to need the next. These are super growly & extremely panty melting sexy. Be warned though, they are super addictive with incredible hot sexy scenes to make you drool.

I was so happy that Karel got his own story! And it definitely didn't disappoint! This was very fast paced, sexy-as-hell, with some suspense and mystery thrown in. Another amazing read from Milly Taiden.
I loved Liv. She's very feisty and spirited. She could hold her own and didn't let anyone boss her around. I really felt for her and her struggles.
Karel.. so sexy and alpha. I love how protective he is of Liv and he just knows that they belong.
I'm in love with the new spin on the PDA

I love Milly Taiden!!! I can’t wait for the next PDA book! Karel is looking for a mate, he goes to earth to employee Gerri to help find that special girl. Liv is having a crappy time with men until she meets Karel who instantly takes her away from earth to Aura to meet his mother who is dying. Liv is a wonderful character, full of insecurities and love.

HOT smokin HOT that is the only way to describe Milly Taiden and her writing. Get the ice water and prepare to get steamy because no one writes sex like the Smut Queen. I have loved the adventures in Paranormal Dating Agency the high energy of Ms Gerri Wilder makes you want to meet this feisty lady and get her to hook you up with the Mack Truck of men sex on shifters.
Ms. Taiden writes fun sexy adventures that you find your self swept away in a modern day Fairytale. Because we all want a ha

So I got a deal a la BookBub for one of the books in this series. At the time I was really unable to focus on anything, so I gave this book (and then the series) a shot. Sped through the whole series.

I don't feel comfortable enough to give a rating to the series, because I just can't evaluate it the way I can evaluate another book. But I will say that in my head, the rating went up a little bit because the author really seems to know what she's writing. She's not trying to write grea

Yowzers! Loved it! Milly does it again..another smoking hot read! Have water handy, you will need it.

Karel comes to Earth to find a mate because Gerri is backlogged and can not make another trip to Aurora. Alivia (Liv) has a chance meeting with Gerri, or is it. Liv decides to give her a chance at finding her a mate. As soon as Karel and Liv meet you can see the sparks flying but Liv is heading out for a date. You can imagine this not sitting well with Karel as he follows her, good thing too as
If you’ve read one you’ve pretty much read them all. Not much going on in this one, we have Karel looking for a wife because his mother is dying and he wants to make her happy. Liv is the typical BBW more talk then she really feels when it all comes down to it. The insecurities is what really gets me because there are so many BBW’s out there that have no shame and if anything the only thing they are insecure about is letting go of their heart for it to be broken. The two meet, of course she’s hi ...more

I loved this book, but then again it is a Milly Taiden book!
I would have finished this a lot sooner, if I had had the time to actually read the past couple of days.
As usual, this was awesome.
I was actually surprised by how quickly Karel and Liv's romance blossomed but I should be used to that with the faster pace stories.
The story is fully told and nothing important is missing, so you get a wonderful short story. Great for a quick read even if you only have a little bit of time. ...more

This is another amazing book by this extremely talented author. I was hooked on this book from the moment that I picked it up. The story is amazing, once you start reading, there is no putting it down until the very last page is read. You will fall in love with the characters and the book moved along at a great pace. This must be read, you will not be sorry.

Was so glad to know this character was finally getting his own book and i loved it. Bella is still getting in trouble and Karel with his mother *swoon* and Liv is one lucky girl. How the threat came into play was interesting and played out well and enjoyed how things turned out for everyone.

Absolutely Love!!! The characters were great. Loved Karel and Liv's story and that you get to know more of the planet Aurora. Their story is fantastic. A love story with a murder plot can't get any better! Way to go Milly Taiden another home run scored with this great paranormal romance.

Now, let me get one thing clear; I liked this book. That's why it has 4 stars. I enjoyed it. As a fun read to start a slow new year at work, it filled a gap.

However, and this is a big however, I have a few niggles. In no particular order:

1: Pacing
I had trouble figuring out the passing of time. Scene transitions seemed a little clunky and unsure. I'm of the opinion one is to end a scene with a definite idea. It didn't detract from the story itself. But I couldn't rea

In the first book 6 we got to meet Karel Yahgar. I loved his personality in that book and we get to see that same personality in this book. He truly has level head on his shoulders.

This was another book I used the whispersync feature and just loved the narrator.

Alivia Vela aka Liv was this confident curvy woman. She loved who she was curves and all. That did not mean her family excepted her curves. As you are reading this series you find the struggles that women like Liv goes through. I think

Love this one. Granted, I don't see any smart woman leaving with a man she's only know for a few hours to go to an undisclosed location without notifying anyone, but other than that it was a really good story. I like how smart and independent Alivia is. She has her chance to be the one to save the day instead of it always being the guy, although the guys still get their moments in the spot light in this one, but for once the heroine gets to shine as the savior. Karel is also a really great chara ...more

Karel & Liv

I loved this book so much. Karel is a jaguar shifter that comes to earth to find a mate. His mum is dying and her biggest wish is to see her son mated and settle. And as luck will have it the first human female he bumps into ( literally) is his mate. Liv is a BBW and proud of her body but tired of having to endure the negative comments of family, friends and strangers about her body. She finally finds, in Karel a man more than happy to love her and her curves and she will do

Karel has been a great character since the first time he was introduced and I love that he got his own story. Liv is a perfect match for him.

In The Roar by Milly Taiden is a fairly short read, perfect for paranormal fans with limited time for reading. Ms Taiden has delivered a well-written book. The characters are fantastic. Karel and Liv's story is fast paced and loaded with suspense, action, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed In The Roar and look forward to reading more from Milly Taiden in the future. In The Roar is book 9 of the Paranormal Dating Agency Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. ...more

Fun Series

I really enjoy this author's paranormal romances. They are quick reads packed with plenty of romance. This one features a woman who really wants kids but is tired of being treated badly by men. She is insecure about her appearance. It takes a shifter from another planet to show her how special she is and give her the life she deserves. He is loyal, protective and sexy and she could not ask for more.

Liv had pretty much given up on finding a decent man and having a family. Until she runs into Karel. Karel came to earth to find a mate. Gerri didn't have time to come there. Who would have thought he run into the one right after he arrived.
Great story. Love the series
