This was the final book in the Nashville Shifter Kings series. As usual Holly did a fabulous job of integrating all the previous characters into this finally. Poison and Callie (Doc) were the primaries, but the rest were necessary to get the job done. Poison had loved Callie since he was 13. She was equally as taken by him. They finally had a chance night together, but Poison's belief that she deserved better than him, left him fleeing before she woke. This created tension between them for ...more

Finally, the Kings of Nashville have all found their Queens and the new reigning Era can begin. Poison wasn't the original king, his half brother Wolf was, but since Wolf never wanted to be King he abdicated and Poison's tattoo started getting darker signaling the need to find his Queen. He's knows exactly who he wants, so it could be so easy, if it wasn't for the fact he ghosted Callie right after a wonderful night together. Callie, better known as Doc, is upset that he ignored her and is not ...more

Not my typical genre, but the blurb got my attention and I thought I’d give it a go.
Poison, the younger brother in-line for the crown of Wolf Shifters got his second chance to be with Callie. Their second meeting wasn’t so cute as she had been handed over to the evil witch faction and was brutally tortured. Poison was emotionally wrecked when he saw Callie, his Leelee beaten and unconscious. Blaming himself for leaving her after their one night stand. He was determined to love and protect her
This is Book 5 in the Shifter Kings Nashville series. OK, I think I’m in love with Poison. This book is so good. Poison loves Callie but he doesn’t think he’s good enough for her, so he runs. Callie has always been the good girl, but she gets kidnapped. Once she’s rescued, things heat up. This tells a story of a bad boy and a good girl who become strong together. It’s got something for everyone, romance, suspense and some really good friends. What more can a person want in a paranormal book, ...more

This is my favorite book out of all the Kings of Nashville. Poison knew that Wolf didn’t want to be king so as the younger brother and runner up that fell on his shoulders. Callie and Poison were best friends and one night they took it to the next level and Poison bolted. Shy, reserved and good girl Callie hardened her heart against Poison when he ghosted her. Fast forward Callie is kidnapped and tortured by a lunatic of witch and Poison doesn’t leave her bedside. Some misunderstandings are ...more

Well written fast paced story full of action, danger and sizzling chemistry

This was a great finale to the Nashville series and I loved how everyone came together to work against the evil witch. Both Poison and Callie were fab characters and made a great couple - despite Poison's blunders and Callie's very understandable difficulties with recovering from her abusive kidnapping. Communication was key - and so was the smoking hot chemistry between them! They did manage to burn up the sheets quite

A great finale to the Nashville chapter of the Shifter Kings! What an evil witch take-down scene! Poison and Callie fit well together and we finally get answers to questions that were posed in the very first book. I liked how Poison had to grow into his role since he was not groomed for it from birth as all of the other kings had been I also really liked how he no longer felt like he was left on the outside looking in. And Yipee! We are going to get more from Ms. Gunn about this awesome shifter ...more

Wow, this is an amazing, sexy, action packed and thrilling story. Poison is sexy and intense and it is hard not to fall in love with him. Callie is the opposite. She's fierce and little down on herself not thinking she's good enough. But it takes one sexy shifter to teach her to be bad! When these two get together it is powerful and completely hot and sexy. They may not seem like the typical couple but boy are they made for each other. She was born to be his queen but it may take some

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I enjoyed this quick story about Callie and Poision. He's going to be the Wolf King and she's a doctor/healer. He's crushed on her since he was 13. After a night of passion things get crazy. This is a continuation of the Nashville Shifter Kings series and continues to build on past characters. A kidnapping and a witch trying to take over all events in this event filled story.

Poison is the Doc’s Best Medicine

The fifth book in Holly Gunn’s series, Shifter Kings Nashville, is Poison, and it was worth the wait!

Callie’s romance with Poison is fraught with agony and personal sacrifice. But from that, she learns what she is worth...and so does Poison.

As a finale to the series, we see each of the shifter kings find their queens, with lust and love and and understanding of the strength that the right right relationship can provide.

Each of Holly’s books tells a tale that

Holly Gunn brings us another fun, fast paced, short, and sexy read in Poison.

Get to know Poison and his Queen, Callie. We've met him in previous books, and in Wolf we discovered that he's the Runner-up for Wolf King. As his older brother has no desire to be King, Poison's tattoo begins to darken.

In this book he's ready to take on the heavy mantle, even as he's busy dealing with Callie, who has been kidnapped and tortured by witches, and his older brother who, though doesn't want the title,

Fun story. Poison, wolf shifter feels insecure with the woman he's loved, Callie since he was 13 years old. They had a night, then his insecurity had him and he ghosted her for 2 months. When everyone reconnects it's after Callie has been retrieved from captivity and torture by one of the para's. Everyone unites to help in recovery and revenge. The intricacies of relatinships is assessed, explored and resolved or partially resolved for some. New friends are introduced and old questions are ...more

DNF after 6 pages

This is just 6 pages into Chapter 1:
The MMC (Poison) lets the MFC (Callie) drunkenly drive home?
The MMC is a friend to MFC but takes advantage of her when she's drunk (even if she "wants" it)?
The MMC has known MFC since he was 13 but 80% of the first chapter is just how horny he is.
The MMC brags over how much experience he's had with other girls, lol.
The MMC refers to MFC constantly as a "woman" instead of his friend for years

I've never read the other books in the series so

Not a second choice queen

This is the perfect conclusion to the Shifter Kings of Nashville series. The author was able to show us the way these kings are meant to work together and the way their queens are way more than just arm candy, as if any of us would believe that anyway. This book really brought the entire gang closer together as a group and it gave us a glimpse into what may happen in LA. I love that these kings managed to find their queens and their HEAs. I can’t wait to read the next

I loved Poison's and Callie's story. He is second in line for Wolf King when his brother does not want to be King. Seeing all the other characters woven so smoothly into the story to bring everything to a conclusion for the Kings of Nashville series. All the heroines are strong women with hearts of gold. Callie does not want to be a consolation prize to Poison after having a one night stand years before with a misunderstanding. Poison thinks she is too good for him. There are twists and turns ...more

POISON is the fifth and final book in the Shifter Kings Nashville series. I loved this conclusion to the series and the fact that all of the other characters were included. This was a fast-paced story that grabbed my attention from the start and kept me turning the pages. Poison and Callie are great characters who have loved each other for a long time but danger may keep them apart. This story has kidnapping, danger, suspense, love, and steamy passion.

Poison is book five and a perfect conclusion to the Shifter Kings Nashville series. Poison and Callie are great together and even though he doesn't think he's good enough for her he is just what she needs in her life. These two go through so much to get their well deserved HEA. I am looking forward to the next series by this amazing author. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.

I loved this series, and I hate to see it end. But this was a wonderful ending to it. Poison was a busy guy with too much in his plate and not enough time. Callie was a really good woman, and she knew it. She made sure that he knew it as well.
