When he decided to surprise his boyfriend for a weekend, Alfie got the shock of his life. Apparently, the clock struck twelve and his prince—or in this case an earl—became a frog.
But as the saying goes, you have to kiss a couple of frogs...
Only now, Alfie’s trust had been shattered and he just wanted to lick his wounds. He called one of his older brothers,...more
More lists with this book...
There is some physical & emotional abuse suffered by Alfie that readers should know about before picking this up.
It happens before we meet Alfie but he is still battered & bruised & it takes some time for him to talk & work through it.
This is insta-love with mates but still Malachi went slow, for a shifter, and let Alfie set the pace.
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

The book was a sweet and heartfelt story with łów level angst thrown into the mix. A very pleasant read overall with interesting characters, but I can’t help wishing it was a bit more developed and twisted in terms of the plot. Just a tiny bit too linear for me.
I found it endearing that Alfie was pretty much ready to be mated to Chi from the first that he found out about the Whitfells. I liked that Malachi was there to help give Alfie the focus, and the love, that he needed.
I'm excited to read Rowan's book and see, what I hope, some major sparks flying about. ...more
Small towns, gotta love them. I love this type of setting it makes things intimate. It seems this one family is designed for this other family and I like the way it's going. Malachi seems to really respect and revere his mate which some of us wish we had. Can't wait for Mikhail's story, it should be interesting. ...more
Malek was so short on angst that it ended up with no conflict. Malachi is better, because Alfi is not ready to pledge his life to some guy he just met after being beaten by his ex.
There could've been more "this is what I like about you" stuff, and the confrontation with Rupert was unsatisfying, but generally I really enjoyed this story. ...more
I loved this! For some strange reason I decided to read the second book first but now I get to look forward to learning Malick and Axles story. Chi and Alfie are the sweetest couple. I love the concept of this series and I can’t wait to read about all the brothers!
Book 2 was better than 1 by a wide margin. There was more character development, wider plot, better writing... The whole shebang. Still super sweet and fluffy but with a dash of angst to make things interesting. Thank goodness for that, after book 1 I was pretty leery. Really enjoyed this story and am anxious to get to the next!
Better than the first book but still had some repetitive moments. There were quite a lot of typos in the last chapter which made me think that it was something just thrown together. It really was also kind of pointless to have Rupert show up because I felt like Alfie already had closure there.
This family of shifters are knights in shiny armour, Malachi is asked to pick up Axel's younger brother Alfie after he gets himself away from his ex.
These two are so stinking sweet together, This is a good read with little to no angst leading on to book three. ...more
I liked this one a little bit better than the first one. Like the first it was fluffy and sweet with a bit of angst. I like how the author keeps the setting alive and well throughout the story. I was definitely googling all the roller coasters at Blackpool. All the characters in the series are easy to like and hold attention. It looks like this’ll be a four part series and I’m looking forward to the next 2 books.
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
