This was a very interesting and quite unique take on a PNR / erotic read, the first in a new Guarded Hearts series. This is a promising start to what I hope will turn out to be a good series, if this one is anything to go by!

It was a bit of a slow start for me at first for a good couple of chapters, I wasn't quite sure where it was heading, but once it got going it was fast paced and erotic.

First I must say this. I really had to get out of my head-space about shifters. This is my first paranormal shape shifting series. And I’m so, so glad I did.
Morgan is a kind hearted soul. Wanting to do good in the world. But she soon learns that the world is not what it seems. Into her life came Zac and Aiden. What starts out to be an assignment for school becomes so much more.
There are ups and downs. Good, bad and evil. A torment roller coaster ride.

An interesting opening to the series, the book was slow to start and there was a lot to learn about the characters. Zac & Aiden are both looking for a suitable partner and need a little help with their relationship skills, Morgan is assigned as their sexual surrogate to assist with this. A very erotic story, sometimes the story was overlooked in place of the sex scenes which was a shame as I thought the actual storyline was very interesting and the final section of the book was particul

Holy Shit! I was expecting this to be steamy, but it soared above anything I could have thought possible. Gripping from page one, and almost too hot to handle, this is a scorcher of a book and a promising start to a new series!

This is the first book in the Guarded Heart series. Morgan is a graduate student and she’s been given a special assignment to supplement her thesis topic. Wouldn’t we all like to have her kind of research? Damn. To teach two hot virgin hunks who know nothing about women how to date and have a sexual relationship? It makes me breathe heavily just to write that!

Her research with Zac and Aiden initially is a project, but soon she finds herself enjoying this sexual fantasy a bit too much and starti

“Together, they would create the next best hope for the human race and earn redemption for theirs.”

Grad student Morgan Leviss has chosen sexual surrogacy as her thesis, and little does she know, she’s about to begin her studies literally “hands on” with not one, but two, socially awkward men who desperately need help learning how to interact with women. Morgan is tasked with teaching them social cues on if a woman is interested and how to enjoy sex and please their partner. Each teachin

Well, this was interesting.
Once I got in to this book, I really enjoyed the topic and the last quarter or so of this book flew by.
In most parts, it is enticingly erotic and the background and subject matter are intriguing.
It is quite slow to start and I must admit, I was terribly confused by the fact that the cover image is of a man, yet the book follows the story of Morgan... A woman! I know naked men in covers sell books but in this case, it just feels a little deceitful.

Morgan is a very interesting and extremely well written book by two talented authors. It is a paranormal read with also BDSM, it is sexy, hot, a love story involving two men and a female who is writing a thesis on sexual surrogacy. Zac and Aiden are both handsome and charming men, looking for a mate. But first they have to learn certain skills on how to draw women to them. Morgan decides to take up the challenge.

Fast & sexy action!

Zac and Aiden are fun as they learn about sex and love. Through most of the book I wondered what kind of shifter they were. I guessed, but I wasn't sure. The dates with Morgan are fun. I like that they try to impress her.

Harold and Etienne are creepy bad guys. I'm glad that those scenes aren't graphic or violent. Sometimes I don't want to know the details.

I look forward to Casey's story. Malik and Iosefa are in for quite a wild ride!

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

This is an intense story, not just with the romance part, but also with the suspenseful actiony stuff. It keeps you guessing and on edge. Just when I thought that I had part of it figured out, all of a sudden, the authors flipped things right around on me and I didn't have a clue as to what was happening anymore.

Morgan is working on her thesis, and it's about sexual surrogacy. Because of that, she ends up working with Zac and Aiden so that she can help them learn how to date, mate, and procreat

Wow, what a collaboration!  Incredible concept for a series. I'm so looking forward to it.  Morgan is a fantastic start and certainly sets the tone.

Morgan is a grad student working on her thesis.  When her professor presents not one but two men in need of a sexual surrogate, she's thrilled to have live experiences for her thesis.

Zac and Aiden are two of a twelve man cadre working to protect the people of the city. They are unable to tell anyone their real purpose.

Whoa. What did I just read? I mean that in a good way. I wasn't sure what I was getting into with Morgan but I knew the blurb had me intrigued. Morgan, Zac, and Aiden are sex personified. Morgan has 20 sessions to teach the men how to be the perfect husband and lover. She never realized what that would do to her own mind.

I loved Morgan. She has confidence like no other, but she's not cocky. She is very kind and sweet and possesses a backbone. Zac and Aiden compliment each other quite well. Both

Morgan is a graduate student and she’s been given a special assignment her thesis. Zac and Aiden were her subjects that she had to study and get ready to get out there to date women. The characters are so lovable hot, goofy, innocent, protective men and a woman in denial. It was fun trying to figure out wha ...more

HMMMMM, what an interesting story in Morgan by Claire Marta and Nia Farrell.  This book is the first in the Guarded Heart series and continues with the second book, Casey. The story starts off a little slow in the first five chapters, but it starts moving and becomes erotically enticing.  The story is a unique and naughty paranormal romance and will easily hold your attention.  With an unusual story line, it is well written and entertaining. 4 stars for Morgan.

I absolutely love all of Ms Marta’s work but Ms Farrell is a new author to me. The characters were well developed and the storyline is hot, steamy and intriguing. I mean what woman wouldn’t want to be sandwiched between two hot and sexy after men, that’s just where Morgan find herself when she is doing her thesis. Zac and Aiden had to seek counseling in regard to their sensitivity towards women and it blossomed from there with being assigned to Morgan for relationship training. But all is not a ...more

Two drool worthy inexperienced sex on a stick men, (who give you some serious laugh out loud moments).... and one so called experienced Woman who is going to show these men how to gain experience by dating and trying to find the perfect partner and everything else that comes with that including her getting more than she bargained for!

Be warned! This story is so funny in some parts that it's hard not to laugh!
Morgan has a thesis and she needs to prove it. It's about sexual surrogacy. So when two gorgeous men are put with her in that field she's more than happy to do their sessions.
But staying professional will be hard as the topic is not helping at all!!
The tension will be smoking hot and of the charts. So be prepared and ready for this.
Will Morgan manage to help those two gorgeous men without losing her own meals and career

I don't want to give anything away ... I wouldn't want you to miss the absolute fun and confusion that was Morgan guiding our two H's through the ins and out of dating and well 🤔 the art of intimacy?

I was lost for the first half of the book as to what Zac and Aiden might possibly be - yes I get they are shifters not helping me🤦🏽! Not to mention what seemed to be the running plot line for the series. I got frustrated a couple of times becaus

Holy deliciously smexy PNR, Batman! I read the blurb for Morgan and instantly knew I had to read this book. I was so glad I did!

The story is a PNR erotic ménage romance centering around Morgan, Zac and Aiden. These three were hotness personified. Like, damn Gina! It almost goes without saying that the chemistry between the three MCs is electric! I almost needed a cold shower after reading this. Not only is the smexy factor there, but there are also plenty of surprise twists to keep you glued to

Morgan tried to act professionally with the guys, but way too often, she fell victim to their natural charms and sexuality, and her attraction to them. The naivete, honesty, openness, and pureness of Zac and Aiden's interactions with Morgan made my heart soar and swell and had me constantly laughing! I could just picture them and laugh now!!! The boys are fast learners! Evil forces are at work. Who will win- good versus evil??? Fun and games are over when things take a deadly turn. Check it out! ...more

A brilliantly written book by two very talented authors.

Morgan is a Grad student who has chosen the subject of sexual surrogacy for her thesis. Her subjects are Zak and Aiden who unbeknown to her are shifters who are over 200 years old with a mission to procreate. They are very naive in the ways of dating and its Morgan's to help them become adept in social and sexual skills to enable them to find their mate.

There are some funny scenes in this book and lots of steamy scenes.

A different kind of story from Nia Farrell. Claire Marta is a new author to me, so she might have written earlier in this genre.
It was a good one!
I like fantasy in combination with other content..
It got me hooked after a while and Then I had to know more.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

When I read the blurb for this story I was completely captivated, and when I read the story I was not disappointed. The characters are strong, and I could not help but fall in love with each of them.
With lots of sexual tension, funny moments, and I can't wait to read more from this author.

Paranormal, suspense, hot alphas and a sassy heroine make for a good start to this series.

It’s story line is unique when we learn the life that Zach and Aiden live. Morgan did not stand a chance when it came to these two men.

I’m so excited to get Casey’s book and to learn more about the men that Zach and Aiden call brothers.

Definitely a must read if you enjoy the paranormal!

Morgan, Zac, and Aidan, what a trio. This is a sexy paranormal romance between the three characters. There is a lot of secrets throughout the book that come tumbling out at the end. It's an interesting take on a paranormal trope. I did question a few things, but hey it's fiction so who cares. A definite one click if you like your paranormal steamy and different. ...more
