Bearing His Name was just blah for me. I had a hard time connecting to the couple. I didn't like the plot of the book were Ark might have impregnated his Mate's sister. I get that it was before he met his mate, and of course he wasn't the father of the baby, had never slept with the sister. Still it was just a gross start to the sto

It’s pretty much a done deal that anything written by Eve Langlais is a must read for me. I love her writing style, her humor and the cocky shifters she brings to life have all pretty much been a hit for me. When I need a sexy quick read to help unwind, I can count on EL to give me a pick me up.

2 Disappointing Stars

When I agreed to read this little ditty, I was sure it would bring the paranormal goodness I was looking for. I'm not a huge PNR reader but Eve Langlais has always worked for me in the past. I like to bring the snark, doncha know.

So did I love it?

Ms. Langlais' story was adequate (can you feel the enthusiasm?) but the rest of the anthology turned out to be a disappointment.

A sequel to Thanks Fur Last Night. These stories can be read as stand-alone paranormal romance.
Bear shifter first, lion second and werewolf in the third.

Fated mates. A bear shifter, whose business is honey, finds his mate. Hilarious, irreverent and twisting word flow made this a super fun read for me.

Yes mine.

Review of No Need Fur Love

Loved it! This is my first Kate Baxter read and I’m pleasantly surprised. I thoroughly enjoyed this quick shifter novella.

Mia, a wood nymph, seems to secure her birthright by producing an heir. She doesn’t want strings attached, so imagine her surprise when she ends up mated to a werewolf following a one night stand!

It was sexy, fun, and action packed! I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

book 1 - 2.5 stars
It was confusing from the start and didn't get much better.

book 2 - 3 stars
Again it was a confusing start, but a nice romance not much in the bedroom department going on.

book 3 - 3.25 stars
Best of the three without a confusing start. Never read about a wood nymph before in a paranormal story. All around good story with sexy times.

The second anthology by this group of authors is a mixed bag - I’d read the earlier antho, and it kind of continues in the same vein, since I liked one out of the three stories. I didn’t actually dislike the first two, which is an improvement from the first antho, so….there’s that.

Yeah, anyway, here’s how it breaks down:

Bearing His Name - 2.5 Stars; problematic AF at first, since the complete lack of respect for what the heroine wanted, even if it was for the humorous effect, wasn’t my fave. Wit

If you are in the mood for some shifter love than these three ladies usually deliver . This anthology has clearly shorter examples but still it’s a great way to sample their styles.
Bearing His Name
So what do you do when you meet your fated Mate only to be told you might be her sisters baby daddy? That’s the conundrum that Arc has to face when all he wants to do is lick honey off Jade. Expect fun, mayhem and of course someone with a rather hairy back !

I've really come to love shifter romances. In a way, they're sorta predictable in that I know they're filled with possessive alpha heroes, strong and take-no-nonsense females, and danger that helps fuel the increasing sexual tension between the two MCs. And sometimes that is exactly what I'm in the mood for: something sexy, slightly obnoxious, but still light and breezy. So thank you Netgalley for sending me this anthology! Overall rating 4.25 stars!

This is my second anthology by these wonderful ladies, but unfortunately like the last, it was lacking some of their usual punch and excitement.

Bearing His Name by Eve Langlais – This story lacked character zing for me and the expected attraction just never seemed to develop. The secondary characters provided some off the cuff humour, which probably helped the story overall.

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.I've had a taste of all three of these authors, so I was very happy to get this anthology where I'd get a story from each! One of the major characteristics I love from these authors is that they know how to weave in the funny moments and characters. Even in dangerous situations, there is always a wisecrack or action that will get a laugh from me.

The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Shifters, manwhores, and baby daddies, Oh My! Big Alpha in Town gives you 3 shifter stories by some of my favorite authors. First up, Bearing His Name. So, whats a guy to do when he finds his mate and also discovers he might have knocked up her sister?! Langlais, in her usual way keeps it light and not too angsty which I appreciated! However, I didn't really care much for Jade or Ark.

This anthology is hilarious. I sucked this one down. I wish I could give half star ratings. This is 3.5 with the amount of sweet humour. The first one made me laugh the entire time.

Bearing His Name
This one is shifter bears who have so many male cousins that it is hard to count them. They are Greek and the tie in to honey is nicely done. Ark is a bit concerned as he received a random card telling him he has a baby mommy. The big problem? At least another 11 cousins are in the same situation. Det

The Big ALpha In Town consists of these:

•quick but fun stories √
•OTT Alpha shifters √
•possessive shifters √
•steamy scenes √
•meeting their mates √
•steamy banters √
•sexual tension √
•fast-paced √
•great secondary characters √
So, basically all stories have that.

The fun in reading this is the journey these shifters's go through to convince their heroines that they are their "mates".

Imagine yourself having that surprise in your life.

Lately I've been really wanting to read shifter stories. For some reason they are calling to me. So I was very happy to be able to read this second book by these authors. The stories go with Thanks Fur Last Night but can be read on their own.

SHIFTER LOVE! Yep, I do enjoy feisty, butt-kicking shifters!

Bearing His Name - HA! Fated mates, an accidental pregnancy, and a bear with a one-track mind. LOVE IT. Honestly, Ark's family is INSANE in the best way and I dug them. Plus, he met his match in Jade. Even when there was a slight possibility he'd knocked up her sister, she was still drawn to him. Naturally, she fought it every step of the way. But when fate bites, you eventually just have to accept it, right?

This book was an anthology of 3 different stories from different authors. The first one was by Eve Langlais who I am familiar with and have read other books by her.

The Big Alpha in Town
Three paranormal shifter romances in one volume

Receiving a baby announcement sets Ark and others on the prowl to find out whether or not they are the baby-daddy of Ruby’s unborn child. More slapstick and comedic than deep but Ruby does find the daddy and Ark finds his mate.

Part of a series with shifters finding their mates in this one Ally and Keir find out that their relationship is more than just business.
