This series is so fun!

Hayley is a RIOT. I seriously took notes of her one-liners and weird insulting names she came up with had me laughing out loud. As the story played out, Hayley became the master of her own destiny in a move I really liked. She's a feisty one, this Hayley!

But aside from that, WOW was Marius in a tough spot. I don't want to ruin anything, but let's just say that things he did in the past greatly affected Hyley, and I was interested to see how he broke

This a wellwritten and fastpaced story that captivated me from the start. The storyline is entertaining and actionpacked. The characters are wonderful. Can not wait for the next book in this series.

I’ve been a fan of this author for a while now. I read the entire Sierra Pride series and really enjoyed it, and read and reviewed the first book in this series, Wild Homecoming, back in October. (It was a 4-star read, by the way) So, when the author offered me an ARC of Wild Atonement, I jumped all over it. Then, when I read and loved THAT, I was too impatient to wait for an ARC of Wild Reunion (which was up for pre-order at the time), so I bo
This was yet again another really good book by Lisa Street I believe that I loved this one a bit more than the first one as Hayley is so Kick-Ass and she is her own person, she tells it as it is and doesn't apologies for it. I also loved Marius as he is this muscular grizzly bear who is every bit an alpha male who likes to dominate and protect people he cares for and he knows who he wants and we'll go for it. The story begins where Hayley receives a phone call from a mysterious stranger telling ...more

Her parents died in the fighting, but the promise still existed. Now Alec, a lion shifter, wants to claim his prize. Since Haley wants no part of this deal, she kisses Marius, a grizzly shifter, a ...more

Love will find a way

The second in a series but can easily be read as a stand alone . Can enemies become friends ? Can a pack be destroyed by a crooked enforcer and an old unenforceable promise ? Can mates be forced to part ? A fast paced funny and adventurous romance Secrets galore and hurts from the past threaten the happiness of a foul mouthed heroine and a broody hero A great stand alone story but a mystery left to solve in the next book ( soon I hope ) Perfec

Hayley is finally home in Dark Pines, this is the home of her cougar pride. Even though she and her 2 brothers are the only ones left.
Marius a grizzly shifter is working in the area. When Hayley asks him for help, he is all in. Maybe now they can get to know each other and explore the attraction she is dening.
There is lots of adventure and fun.
This is a fun easy read like all of Liza Streets stories. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more of her books.

Wow!! This book is a fun and engaging read! This story grabbed me right at the beginning and had me on the edge of my seat until the end. It is LOL funny with very colourful and fantastic dialogue, witty banter, and likeable characters. The connection between Hayley and Marius kept me reading and wanting to know what came next – so much action, drama, suspense, and hotness within! I definitely recommend this book, and I look forward the next book in the series.

Wilde Atonement is heartwarming story with some suspenseful drama .
Hayley wants to prove she is “responsible “.
Marius is just trying make amends for bad decisions towards Hayley Family in the past.
Hayley just wants fun, Marius wants more and their connection is to good for “just fun”
Dark Pines territory is in trouble and Hayley is in danger. He has to deal with this first.
Very enjoyable and entertaining story.

I loved this! It has drama, romance and a very feisty heroine, who takes no prisoners!
Haley kisses Marius to show Alec she already has a mate when he comes to claim her as per an agreement made 4 years previously. Just one problem, she does not want a mate and Alec does not believe the kiss. This leads to the drama. Marius, however, cannot let her go. To say any more would be to spoil the plot, so go get it today and read it! It is sooooo worth the read.

This is a well written book with an entertaining story line. The author brings strong characters in Hayley and Marius as well as the supporting characters who help to bring the story around. She does a fantastic job building the story and pulling you in with all the humor and steam as well as her detailed scenes. It's an action packed story with a strong alpha male and a feisty heroine. It moves quickly and smoothly and I enjoyed reading. I would recommend this book.

The Dark Pines Pride is back without a doubt!

I love all of the Fierce Mates books. They are heartwarming with just enough suspenseful drama to keep them interesting. Hayley Jaynes wants to prove she's a "responsible adult" so badly. She's just not sure how. Marius Nichols is just trying to live his life and make amends for bad decisions in his past. Their chemistry is off the charts and even though Hayley just wants "fun" Marius wants more. First they need to handle a threat to Dark Pines ter

Hayley followed Jackson to Huntwood, only to discover her father had made a commitment in her name with another pride. It was one she definitely did not want to honor!
Marius was having issues with guilt over his part in harassing Summer, meeting Hayley compounded the guilt and secrets from four years earlier didn't help.
Would they be able to overcome the issues?
Great addition to the series!

I don't think the synopsis gives the book the justice it deserves. This particular book in the series has a whole lot of secrets, adult situations, and lies but also family, love, support and strength.

If you enjoy a good shifter book then this series will be worth your time. While each are standalone I recommend you read them in order. Not because it is necessary but because it will give a better understanding of the scare to her brother and his girlfriend.

Gifted a copy. Voluntary review

This book is so much fun to read. The characters are well written; with Haley being sassy and foul-mouthed just the way I love my heroines. Marius is the flawed hero trying to make amends for a mistake made years ago. I am always happy to read a book by Ms. Street. They always keep me engrossed from word one and make me root for the characters. I requested an ARC of this book so that I could post an honest review.

I loved this read. Hayley was a strong female lead character, which I love. Poor Marius, trouble is all that he knows, but each person needs and are getting a second chance. The characters are brilliantly developed and have their own personalities. The storyline is intriguing and kept me engrossed. I cant wait for book 3.

This is the 5th book I've read written by Liza Street; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Hayley is bada$$. I love her unusual cursing, but most of all her heart. At 21 she's also got some growing up to do. We met Marius in Wild Homecoming, but his sensitivity and his sense of honor really come through in this story. Their meeting and navigating the attraction amidst the Jaynes taking back their territory and heritage makes for a sweet, heartwarming and sexy read.

Another great book from this author. Hayley & Marius are great characters who deserve to be together. Hayley starts out by using Marius but ends up with a match made in Heaven. Steamy love scenes, great action and a romantic rendezvous make this book a wonderful addition to the series. I enjoyed it very much.

I enjoyed this second story in the "Dark Pines Pride" series. It's a fairly quick shifter read that is very intriguing. It's an action packed story with some suspense and laugh out load moments. A very captivating read I did not want to put down until the very end. I really love the characters! Marius and Hayley are great together!
