I was seriously surprised at the way this played out, so I had to put it aside at the 20% because there was several things that put me off in the worst way, so I can't and I won't.

1. Manho hero description
2. Other women (yes, plural) description
3. Yes, contact with those other women. description
4. Oh yes, more than just kissing. description
5. Did I mention it's in front of the heroine? description
6. AFTER they have their first kiss? description

All of this in the first few chapters. Um, No. Just. No.

Derry and Jessica.
Well that was disappointing. I came so close to DNFing this one that I really wonder why I didn't, cause I can't say I enjoyed it... at all. Mostly because it just wasn't romantic imho.
Overall it wasn't predictable, it was a odyssey from the H being a total ASSHAT little whiny boy, to a guy whose been perpetually underestimated by his own family... well that's not surprising since his family is a group of manho jerks.

This one was certainly worth the wait. I love me so hot sexy alpha shifter. This one just happens to be a former shiftermale-whore. Derry was a perfect specimen of male power, strength, protections, possession, and a lot more that I am at a lose for words for.

He would have to hear the beat for the one woman that he should stay away from. Jessica was the one. The one. She was a change he was or was not ready for.

I enjoyed falling in love with Derry. I knew from book one that he would be the one

McDermott "Derry" Stanton is an old-money playboy who sleeps his way through half the world, one willing woman at a time.

A bear shifter, he never hibernates alone. Sometimes even one woman isn't enough.

But when this irresistible billionaire meets Jessica Murphy, everything changes. The man who views life as a female feast suddenly acquires more discerning tastes. The only woman who can satisfy him now...

Is Jessica Murphy. He must have her. Immediately.
Jessica Murphy is starting her job at the Platinum Club and her sole focus is doing the job and earning the money for her schooling. She doesn't expect to meet her sisters fiancee' brother, who has a reputation of being a playboy, McDermott "Derry" Stanton. Derry doesn't know what it is about Jess but the more he is around her the more the need to have her is driving him. However Derry may not a lot about the fairer sex but he doesn't know anything about courting a mate.

Ummm... What did I just read?

I love a good shifter romance but this was nothing. The characters are absolute shit, especially the main leads' families and especially the female leads mother and sister.
Mother first tells the female lead to find a nice guy and settle down and then goes on to accuse her that she is jealous and trying to act out. The sister is going to marry a wolf shifter then sits there and tries everything to separate Derry and Jess? Like what the ever loving hypocritical fuck?

Ok follow-up to the first book

I really, really wanted to love this book because I wanted to cheer for Derry who was portrayed as a manwhore in the first book. I was also cheering on Jess, who is Lilah's younger sister who is a virgin. As I kept reading though the book I didn't really feel an emotional attachment to either of the characters. This was a bit disappointing. I storyline seems perfect the characters do too, but somehow the entire story was a bit stiff and a little cold and didn't touc

This is Jess & Derry's story.
Jess just started working at the exclusive platinum club where her sister worked previously, to make money for her med school.

There she met Derry, his soon to be Bro-in-law, who's a regular there.

The Beat was there from the start, but none understood. Primal.

I received an ARC for an honest review. I have never been so happy to receive an ARC. I was anticipating loving Derry from his introduction in the previous book, but this surpassed my expectations. Diana Seere brought to life Jess and Derry as two wonderful and complex characters with so much love to share despite their families trying to keep them apart for their own good . I shared the emotions of the characters through joy and anticipation to frustration and anger when they were hurt. They we ...more

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Jess and Derry's story is a satisfying addition to the series. At first glance, these two seem like polar opposites--the reserved virgin and the happy-go-lucky manwhore--but there is something definitely there. What they have to figure out is whether or not they are the One for each other, or just a scorchingly hot fling. It was delightful to read their story of discovery of not only themselves, but each other. It was also very enjoyable to l ...more

Jess and Derry, They are both so unique and interesting in their own way but put them together and you can just see the sparks fly. Their story is one I fell into and was happy to visit, (did not want to end) This shifter wold is so complex and diverse that it just captures the reader and we are happy it does not let go. It is so much more than just a story about two amazing individuals finding the other half that makes them whole it is about family and ties that bind us all. I am eagerly lookin ...more

This is the first book I have read of Diana Seere. I have to say I truly loved this book. There might of been a few characters I did not like but that is expected when reading a good book.

McDermott “Derry” Stanton is a true playboy and a sexy bear shifter. It is nothing for him to take 3 to 4 women home a night. When reading about Derry’s life I had to think what a tiresome and lonely life that must of been. Sure he had tons of women and he was some what close to his siblings. But he did not hav

The whole premise of this book (& the series) isn't a bad one, and I really love the how the female characters aren't your typical 'supermodels' but real beauties. The problem I have is that at with these books it seems that around every corner these characters are on each other like rabbits in a field. I get that its 'The Beat' or whatever, but seriously at least half of this book is sex scenes & after a while you just skip them because they are boring and unimportant. They are also very predic ...more

This was the first book that I have read of Diana Seere. It is the second book in the series but I was able to follow this book without reading the first. I did like a few of the characters and a dislike for others.

McDermott "Derry" Stanton is the playboy of the family. His family is kinda unique it consists of three brothers which is two wolves and a mountain lion, and a sister who is also a bear. None of his siblings think Derry will find his mate because bears never mate one person.

McDermott "Derry" Stanton comes from a family with 'old money', he keeps his passion for his chosen field a secret and is known for his playboy attitude toward life and women. One elevator ride with the new employee and his future sister-in-law and The Billionaire Shifter's Virgin Mate changes him in unexpected ways.

Jessica Murphy is a premed student and working at the club is the best paying job she can find to finance her studies. She has goals and they do no include becoming The Billionaire S

Ever thought you will meet your mate in elevator? That's exactly what happens with Derry. He meets Jess on her first day on the job at the Platinum club. McDermott is Gavin's younger brother and soon to be brother-n-law to Lilah who happens to to be Jessica's sister. Do you see the dilemma. And he is also a customer of the club and Jess is a waitress at the club and. You cannot get involved with anyone at the club. Also, women go Ganga over this playbook so imagine the ch

Loving this series, so glad Derry got his story along with Jess. Both siblings were crucial in the first book and it’s nice to see them get their own story. Derry is misunderstood, yes he’s a bit of a flirt, and he’s slept with more women that he can count but does that mean he’s incapable of love?? Jess is so adamant that school and her job are all she’s concentrating on that her odd reaction to Derry is not what she needs right now. Derry doesn’t understand it but can’t deny it, he wants and n ...more

Virgin Mate Could Be Curvy Match

This book is so very similar to Book 1. Derry and Jess are the main characters in this book. Two curvy sisters, one a virgin, and two shifter brothers, a wolf and a bear, are the Ones for each other. The background characters are exactly the same and had to learn the same lesson in this book as in book 1. Asher is especially hard nosed about shifters not mating with humans. Sophia still didn't understand but her eyes may have been opened in this book considering t

I started this series back to front with Shifters Secret Baby. This was my most favourite blurb after it, although I do recommend reading in order, as I should've done. I must admit I loved Jess and Derry. I didn't like the other supporting characters such as Lilah, Gavin, Sophie and Asher. I found them so two faced and hypocritical. Yes it was meant to be to create this storyline but I found so little redeeming features I won't be reading their stories. This story dragged out quite a bit and
Sissy's Romance Book Review
The Billionaire Shifter's Virgin Mate by Diana Seere is book Two in the Billionaire Shifters Club series. This is the story of McDermott "Derry" Stanton and Jessica Murphy. I have read the previous book, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Derry never thought to feel his heart beat for just one women but when he meets Jessica it does. But no one believes that he can love just one women not his family nor her. But he has to show them that they are wrong.

This was a great story! Jess gets a job at a private club where she meets Derry. He is famous for his way with women but he never gets into any relationships. He knows that being a shifter he must not allow anyone into his world. Jess has a sister who is getting married to his brother. The more time they spend together the stronger the pull is for them. He thinks she might be the one for him but his older brother finds a way to tear them apart. Derry doesn’t give up and he sets into motion a pla ...more

Book 2

Derry and Jess. I like the series and the family but I keep waiting for that but extra. There are unanswered questions and parts that just seem to be missing. Like with the book, does Jess change? There are all the hints that she will. Why is there the same issues that were in the first book? Why could they not keep their hands off each other? Why is Jess going through crazy hot and cold flashes? I was hoping she was going through the change and went into heat because of it. It just needed

I will be honest...I read over 52% before throwing up my hands. I really enjoy paranormal shifter romance but this was nauseating. Derry comes across as sleazy and his siblings are awful. Jess is frankly, unrealistic and has no depth. Who goes from no men to screwing this guy without any hesitation? I know others enjoyed this but when the characters are so one dimensional and the story has dragged 17 long chapters with no real point, I just can't sway myself to keep reading. It is rare for

Really enjoyed this book. I liked the different take on the shifter universe. There are some well drawn characters that really inspire strong emotion (can I just say I hate Archer?!) I liked both main characters and I think the author’s did a good job developing character and creating depth. I do wish I’d read book one first as I think I would have felt a bit more clued in on this family dynamic. Will probably go back and read that book before going on to book three at some point.

Derry and Jess

This is the second book in The Shifters Club series and the reader is introduced to Derry and Jess. Derry is a bear shifter and Gavin's younger brother and Jessica is Lilah's younger sister. With Gavin and Lilah already mates it is a surprise for the families to realize that McDermott (Derry) and Jessica (Jess) are also mates! This book is a standalone novel but also part of the Stanton Family series. A great 👍 edition to the series!

Fate and family

This story will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning until the end as it is so intriguing. The author did an amazing job that pulls the reader into the story with all the drama, sexy scenes and twists. I didnt want it to end as I couldn't get enough of Derry and Jess. I like the way Marilyn was portrayed as the mama bear even though she is human. This series is a definite must read.
