All he wants, in fact, all he's ever wanted is a Prince of his own.
Who knew running would lead Axel straight to his very own fairytale? No rea...more
More lists with this book...
Would give the next book in the series a try to see if there is improvement.
You get just what is advertised in this book a non-angst story of two fated mates. I think that is the main problem with this story. Everything is just too easy. Axel is confronted with wolf shifters and male pregnancy and has absolutely no qualms about either. I would have liked a just a little bit more struggle between Axel and Malek. So overall, the story was okay. Not sure I want to continue the series.
Info Dumping : there is a ton of this in this ARC copy I received for review. It is really like what it sounds, you are dumping information at a high rate to the reader. There is a ton of this in this story. I wished the author could show more than tell me everything they wish to convey. I felt like the author was in a rush to give ...more
Really glad I took a chance on it. Axel was a cute character, I loved his rambly style and malek was so sweet. There wasn't much to this book at all and I do wish there was SOMETHING in the way of angst. Very very fluffy. Kinda too fluffy honestly.
I really do love when urban fantasy romance books acknowledge that urban fantasy romance books are a thing, it's always so much fun. That said even though a character feeling the "insta-love" is familiar with the concept due to "r ...more
PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!
To my ratings:
A 3,5* is clicked with a 4* but in review marked as 3,5*:
5* - very very good and rare (it would be a Blow-Away-book like ‘Jesse's Smile’ or ‘Joey’ from Angelique Jurd, ‘Save the the kids’ series
from EM Leya, ‘Love’s Tethered Heart’ from C.L. Etta or ‘Liberty’ from Seth King),
it's like an A+
4* - very good and will be often reread and is a WOW-book with interesting plot and surprises (like most of Andrew Grey books and Davidson Kings 'Haven Hart'-se ...more
What a great start to a new series! Skye has created a wondrous world filled with intriguing characters. Wolf shifters, an intrepid man, Goddess sent mates, brothers galore, and a baby. Ya gotta love it!
This is Malak and Axel's story. Axel loves romance novels. He dreams of fated mates and his Prince Charming. Getting lost on a hike , Axel is at the end of his strength. Malek, prince of his pack, had let his wolf run free, drawn by the most marvelo ...more
I am usually a huge fan of shifter m/m romances. I enjoy them, and actively seek out new writers to read. This seemed like a winning combination- a retelling of Beauty and the Beast? Count me in!
Sadly, I just could not get past the first half of the book. The writing was choppy, and constantly made me have to go back and reread to be sure I was getting what the author meant. The relationship between the characters too seems completely unrealistic and ou ...more
This book was too cliché for me and the storyline wasn't ...more
If you're looking for heat, this one is pretty damn hot. Malek and Alex certainly know how to steam up the pages.
My rating is based solely of the fact that I think I wasn't really in the mood for this one. It seemed too easy, too quick. I think I would have preferred at least a little angst. But, it you want a quick, happy ...more
We meet our MC Axel as he panics and runs after kissing his best mate at his stag night. He ran all the way to the Lake District. I loved how impulsive Axel was in deciding to go for a hike in such a beautiful place. Really enjoyed having the Lake District as the main setting for this story. The hidden valley idea was kinda romantic and just felt so right for the story
Malek is first seen as a Wolf when he smells his mate and literally runs all the way to him. It was very much in ...more
I liked this story and will definitely be reading more in this series, as it comes out. There were two things about this book that made me choose to rate it as low as I did. First, I would have liked Axel to have maybe had a little less insta-love acceptance of absolutely everything. Second, the editing in this book got progressively worse. At first I just figured that the missing articles/words were simply Britishisms that I hadn't come acros ...more
I quite liked this book but found it slightly lacking.
I'm not one for a lot of angst but having a little would have been a nice touch and would highlight the fact that Malek is an Alfa and protector.
I also felt there was way too much "thinking" thoughts through this book and not enough verbal dialogue.
Just when you think you have a decent dialogue, back to the thoughts dialogue (so frustrating)
Saying that, l still got a wonderful connection between the two MM characters and felt their emo ...more
This is a no angst shifter mate story. Kind of like a fairy tale. Axel is a funny character and I laughed at his internal monologue when he met Malek. Malek is the strong alpha wolf character. But, really, he is so sweet to Axel. I suppose this book is the world-building one so not really any room for angst. I just can’t imagine someone taking all the changes so easily—like, hey, you can get pregnant is not something most men would accept readily. But cute story.
A book ideal for a simple and nice reading. Enjoy it! ...more
I wanted to like this one but the confusing word choices (or maybe just flat out wrong choices)really made it impossible to enjoy. I would read something and ponder what the heck it was supposed to be saying and then I would figure out what was wrong and fix it which really isn't enjoyable. For example the author said "the weather dropped" but really meant the temperature dropped. I think this one needed a run through with an editor. ...more
This is such a sweet and lovely story! Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy a feisty and angst ridden story as much as everyone else but every once in a while it’s good to find a feel good romance you can just sigh over and have wistful dreams of only this could really happen! I’m definitely going to get the next in the series and read it curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea and just dream a bit, lol!
So this is an insta-love, shifter, mpreg story. I'm ok with sped up love connections in the fated mates setting. I did find this book's pacing weird and the author spent a lot of time describing buildings and with the redundant inner monologues of the main characters rather than having actual interactions between the two that weren't sex. Not sure about continuing on with the series. I did like that the book was zero angst though! ...more
For as long as she can remember Skye had her nose stuck in a book, getting lost in the world of someone else's creation (She still does). Her love for writing came from her love for reading. She could never have one without the other.
Writing was always a hobby and a cathartic experience for her. There are many stories lost to the never to be completed or publishe ...more
