***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I will be adding this to my collection in the future!
The cover is awesome, and it is also my favorite kind of shifter cover because it shows both forms of beautiful beasts!
This is the first book in a new series! It is for adults only due to the steamy content. For whatever reason ...more
I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Elemental Mating is the first book in Milly Taiden's A.L.F.A. series. This is also my first experience with this author. A.L.F.A. is a group of secret agents that work for the government. The government knows they are shifters while the world is kept in the dark that they exist. The government uses their special skills on dangerous missions in exc...more
From the moment I saw the cover of Elemental Mating I knew I wanted to read it. I've never before read Milly Taiden but that fact didn't deter me. In fact, it was a plus. I love trying new authors.
Some I love, some I don't, and some, I find so-so.
Elemental Mating turned out to be a so-so for me. After looking so forward to read it I was a bit disappointed in it. I think for me it was the writing. I'm not saying it ...more
This was a super fun sexy shirfter read that was non stop from the very start. I love a Mates-at-first-sight type of book. I feel like they are full of need and I love the angst that seems to come with them.
A brilliant, headstrong, and wonderfully sassy scientist, and the man sent to protect her under the guise of being from the CDC. From he very tart I loved the tension between these two. Hamel was smart, alpha, and still a bit goofy. I lo...more
Melinda, a scientist, has discovered something exceptional, something I can't even begin to describe. LOL But, suffice it to say, it could change everything, and some people will do anything to acquire it, including breaking into her lab, which means someone has been watching her and knows exactly what she's found. When vital data is accidentally lost, you'd think the threat to Melinda is over, however, this brilliant woman has a certain ability that makes her invaluable in recoveri ...more

Melinda is one snarky lady, “do not call me ‘darling,’‘sweetheart,’ or ‘honey’ or I will turn you into a eunuch before you can even think to cover your balls.” It's like Hamel always knows what to say, “first off, I’m not most men. Secondly, I’m here to protect you. No place better than your bed to do that.” He slid his finger along her smooth cheek and jaw. “Thirdly, I really like you, Melinda.” His finger pushed her chin up so he could see her eyes. “I really, really like you, Melinda.” I real ...more
This story had shifters,witch doctor, demons and scientist. Throw all that together in one book and you have an awesome story. Can the scientist believe what they don't have facts on. Read this book to found out what all these characters together can make happen.
I love Ms Taidens’ Paranormal Dating Agency series for its quirky humour, feisty heroines and hot alpha men, so I was looking forward to this new series thinking it would be on the same lines. I know one shouldn’t expect similar but that is Ms Taidens type of writing style.
However, it didn't grab my attention all the way through and I found it very easy to put down and go do something else. An interesting tale but it didn't rush me along on the ride l ...more
