LOVED THIS. Nox was amazing and I believe one of my favorite of Joyce's heroes. It's been awhile since Ive read this author, but her writing is even better than I remember. Romantic in a unique and totally swoony worthy way. Hilarious as shit too. LOVED THIS! ...more

T.S. Joyce's books are my go-to feel- good quick reads.
I LOVE these messed up, deranged, dominant, funny as hell shifters.

A great start for a new series.

This was definitely better than the last T.S. Joyce I read, but what is with all these assholes being portrayed as heroes. Nox wasn't as bad but I didn't really see a HEA in the future for these two.
It was short, insta and way too grouchy a read. *shrugs*

I love TS Joyce books - they're so much fun!

This was a great start to a new series. Nox and Nevada were so perfect for each other. There's no unnecessary drama and I was happy with the way things ended. Can't wait for the next book :)

This is the story of Clinton's son, Nox. If you've read the other books, you'll know just how freaken crazy Clinton is and his son doesn't fall far from the tree, which means, I loved this book. TS Joyce does crazy so well.

My only issue is that I was a little confused because somehow I'd missed book 5 for the Red Havoc series. How the hell did that happen? Needless to say, I'm reading that one as soon as I'm done this review. Which is now.

Another masterpiece

You know you're reading a great book when you lose track of time and everything that is going on around you. This happened to me whilst reading Son of the Cursed Bear.

I am excited to read more of this new series but I do hope there will be no peeing on the Red Dragon, I dropped my kindle laughing so hard at that, I was laughing that hard my Mr asked if I needed a drink of lemonade which set me off all over again, you know that kind of laugh where you can't breath, tears stream
Gwen (The Gwendolyn Reading Method)
T.S. Joyce is definitely one of my favorite guilty-pleasure authors. And I loved that this one had a main character with social anxiety and a tug-on-the-heartstrings melodramatic storyline. All the right elements to make this immensely enjoyable for me!
Vfields Don't touch my happy!
This is a trilogy from T. S. Joyce. Right now what I need is to read something that pulls me away from reality, entertains me, makes me laugh, makes me worry and makes me happy. As far as I’m concerned this checked all of the boxes.
4 stars
This is a continuation from the entire massive series from this world even though it is declared a standalone trilogy. I found more than enough references to the previous books that it works well in the series and if you’re a compulsive neurotic about books l

Nox was pretty much everything you'd hoped he'd be, being Clinton's son. Super funny, in an in-your-face way, smarta**, crazy, fun, and sweet all at the same time. Never know what he's going to do or what's going to come out of his mouth next, but you know it'll either make you laugh or melt your heart.

And Nevada was perfect for him. It was great seeing him try to fight against liking her as much as he did, because you knew he needed her calm to help sooth his crazy personality. And she's probab

RARE reading challenge

Again a new author to me and I do love supes. Here we have a super grumpy bear shifter who is no good with people skills so he's a bounty hunter by trade.

Nevada couldn't be further away from the brashness of Nox if she tried. A lifetime of not being enough has her confidence at an all time low. But opposites attract and meeting Nox seems to light a fire within the little fox.

This was a fun if short book. It hard to cram in back story when you have such a short book and so w

CLINTON JR!!! He is so annoying like his daddy, I just love it. His country club outfit is great and I love that we get to see a new shifter breed! Side note I want their future babies to steroid versions of their mother's animal. Love bears but come on, you gotta love an animal that's stops a dragon with pee! ...more

Totally loved it!!

I freaking loved it. I love Nevada! She is sooo strong while she is dealing with her social anxiety. She is terrified and yet not. Not is a mess. I laughed throughout the book. Great story! Can't wait for the next book!!

This was a fun read with a group of ragtag shifters. While they each come across as loners when push comes to shove they have each other's backs. I'm interested in seeing what the next book in this series has to offer with this lovable group. ...more

Ok wow! You could not have a more perfect pair. Pretty sure this is my favorite book from this author so far. Funny, crazy and shifters also a guy with no filter what so ever. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.

Bounty hunter and sexy werebear Nox Fuller has to track down the Red Dragon and take him off to shifter jail. Instead, he meets Nevada Foxburg, a beautiful fox with horrendous social anxiety. Somehow, Nox’s anti-social, practically feral demeanor draws Nevada out of her shell and the sparks fly. But how will the other foxes react when they find out she’s shacking up with a bear? And what about that dang dragon?

I rarely laugh out loud when reading but Joyce’s novel had me howling with laughter. T

Fast read. I thought fox shifters are different. I haven't read about them before. Good story. Would be willing to read the next one.

I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I laughed out loud several times at these two messed up shifters. I'm hoping the next in the series is just as good.

Nox Fuller, a Bear shifter and a bounty hunter who was tasked of bringing Vyr "Red Dragon" in for a year stint in a shifter prison but that task was becoming very challenging. He know he should keep his head in the game but when he met the sexy, shy shifter named Nevada. He knew that things would be very interesting.

Son of the Cursed Bear, the beginning of T.S. Joyce’s Sons of Beasts trilogy takes me right back to those early days of reading the connecting series that make up Damon’s Mountains. Raw, intense, snarky, over the top bad boy – yeah the apple didn’t fall far from the tree in Nox. He’s Clinton one hundred times amplified and absolutely adorable… in a hot, sexy, sometimes total arse kinda way.

⭐⭐⭐: where do I find myself a Nox?!

Nox Fuller is the Son of the Cursed Bear. He likes to fight and piss people off. He doesn't do people.
Nevada Foxburg is a fox shifter. She's got social anxiety and never says the right thing. She doesn't do people.
Together they might be able to find what others think they don't deserve...

I'm a little conflicted about this book. I rated it four stars because I loved the characters, but I'm taking one star away in my written down review. Before this book, I read
