This is book 2 in the Sylvan City Alpha series; written by the amazing Reina Torres.

Meet the handsome Boone Wayland. Boone has a secret. He's a shifter, along with being a problem solver, and a protector. However it didn't always go in that order. Only when Boone had finally decided that he wanted to find his mate, Boone knew that there was only one place to go. That was the Paranormal Dating Agency which is masterfully run by Gerri Wilder.

Another marvelous mash up of two of my favorite Paranormal Romance series!

In this second installment of the Sylvan City Alphas series, Reina Torres has brought us into the world of the Paranormal Dating Agency series. This series was originally started by the amazingly talented Milly Taiden, and much like the Howl's Series, many different authors have contributed stories to it.
Boone and Willa are brought together by matchmaker extraordinaire, Gerri Wilder. They are two people that just want to

Really, Really, Really, Sweet Read

I really really like this book! I like the fact that the author took the time to really develop the characters, to develop the scenes, and to develop the setting in which led to so much more for both the characters. I liked that she didn't automatically jumps them to having sex, but instead took their time to get to know each other. Often so many times in these paranormal books they have it where they just jump right into the sex which I'm perfectly greatly fine

This story is so sweet, fun, sexy and engaging I could not put it down. Loved the gimps we got of Boone and his awesome band of boys in the first Sylvan City book and they so did not disappoint in this adventure.

Boone Wayland is a bear shifter with a huge heart and burning need to find his mate but no time to look for the right woman, so he calls the Paranormal Dating Agency for help. Willa Barnes is so sweet and loving, she thought she was on her way to having a family till her boyfriend marri

Cute little story.

To be honest I was very disappointed in this story. I was expecting the same type of writing as the original PDA author, Millie Tilden. One of the great things about Milly's writing is the extremely hot, pantie melting, combustible sex scenes, and this story literally did not have a single sex scene. While there were a few Kksses here and there and some handholding that was as hot as it got. The whole story was sweet in regards to the hero fostering all the teenage bear shifte

Just had to add that cute little title because that was how much I have loved this book. Loved it so much had to read in one setting. This book had me laughing and crying and knowing I wanted to be like that bear and take in the boys. I loved that he had such a big heart for everything.

Willa just seemed like the perfect fit from the start, how could she not be. Also Boone was the big loving teddy bear that everyone wants, even though he could be the grizzly we all want when need

Different Twist on a shifter Romance

Here’s what I liked about this book! One the shifter hot guy has “kids”. Out of all the shifter romances I’ve read the main character has never had kids. It was a refreshing change from the norm. Two, I liked how the female character didn’t automatically jump straight to sex after the first meeting. This was a nice sweet shifter romance. The only reason I gave it a four is there wasn’t enough heat for me between the two main characters. This book read like a s

I need a matchmaker! Willa gave way to much of herself in her relationship...and got nothing in return. Fate and a lovely lady by the name of Gerri Wilder had something better in mind for her, something which would fulfill all her fantasies...or would it?
Read the story, you won't be disappointed!

Dreams do come true

Being taken for granted sucks but Willa has people who care about her and one of them contacts Gerri when Charlie runs off. Gerri, of course, comes through with flying colours and introduces her to Boone. There's a scuffle with some bad guys, a new edition to the family and a whole lotta love heaped on Willa in this latest edition of the PDA.

Too Much to Bear

Another awesome story!!! Scorching hot and intriguing writing about an alpha bear and mate. With his adopted boys bringing a little bit of humor into the mix. This is one of those books that can really get you to smile about love and giggle at the antics of the boys.

Awesome bear shifter tale with homeless boys etc.

Somehow he finds orphan bear shifters and gives them a home. She's been taken advantage of more than long enough. These two lonely souls find one another and connect.

Good premise, poor execution

This is the first book I've read from this author. I liked the premise, but it was not well done. There were lots of breathy sighs and trembling hands, along with stilted dialogue. It had the tone of a cheesy bodice ripper style story.

Wanting more

The story just didn't flow and I felt that there were key sorry points missing. I liked the characters and I want to see where it goes with them. But it felt rushed and way to washy.

New to me

This author is new to me. Good story, loved the characters. The boys are funny and sweet. This had a great feel to it with the story line. Some places were a bit confusing but still good enough that I didn't want to stop reading it.
