I've been told I'm a force to be reckoned with. That I blow onto the scene like a tornado.

At age forty I've stopped caring if that's a compliment or a dig. Now I just wear it like a badge of honor. So when life threw me a curveball and I ended up going from a cushy job in New York City to the tiny Southern town of Grimm Cove I thought I was ready for anything.

Ha! Not quite

1 star.


I was looking forward to this book quite a bit because I loved Dana in the previous book, but I guess this is what I get for having expectations. Let's break this down:

→ The Kindle version of this was said to have 370 pages and, if that's true, most of them were spent on things that weren't Dana and Jeffrey and their relationship.
→ Too much Poppy and Brett plus a rehash of what happened in the first novel and how the two of them got together and were mates. We know this already. This too

3.5 Stars.

I do wish that Goodreads would allow half stars. This is a super cute fun series that you can read (each book) in a sitting. Definitely great for a little mindless fun that will get you away from the problems of the world right now.

I loved the first book in this series and was looking forward to this book. Dana was so independent and snarky in that first book that I knew that her and Jeffrey were going to clash repeatedly in their own book. They did and it was fun watching their relationship grow. I enjoyed reading about Dana's past and how she developed into the woman that she has become. I would have liked to see Dana and Jeffrey have more time together to actually get to know each other and for readers to get know them ...more

It was cute and fun. We do spend more time with other characters than with Dana and Jeffery and their relationship.

Rated: 4 Stars
I liked book 1 in this series, but I felt like this one felt a little short in comparison. I had it in my head that Dana's family name had been revealed in book 1, but everyone from Grimm Cove seemed surprised when she admitted to being a Van Helsing confused me. I'll freely admit I might be wrong about the book 1 reveal, but I absolutely had it in my head her family connections had been established already and I was a little thrown when the GC crew were all shocked by her admission.

Dana & Jeffrey’s Story

I really loved Dana and Jeffrey in book 1. So I was happy to learn that book 2 would have their POVs.
I liked learning more about Dana and her story. Although I still feel like there’s a bit more to learn about her family. The first 4 chapters for me were a bit confusing for me. As it went in the past instead of starting right off where we left off. So it threw me for a loop. I did feel like the book was a bit rushed as far as character development. I would have liked to se

Not an enjoyable read

I have really been enjoying the new PWF genre. It’s been great reading mature characters in fun paranormal settings. I read all of the original 13 books and have begun reading any of the secondary books that have been released. I liked the first book in this series okay & was looking forward to a new PWF book. I wish I had not wasted my time on this one. The characters were not given any time to develop any depth.

The main character may have been given the age of 40 but, I f

Another great addition to the Grimm Cove series. Book 2 is Jeffrey and Dana's story. Filled with magic, mayhem , supernatural hijinks, great humor, hunky alphas and sassy heroines. The chemistry is fantastic and the plot great! I really enjoyed the cast of characters and the enthralling paranormal/supernatural action 🎬. I can't wait for book 3.

My Rating: 4.4 stars ********

Still Cute but Still Disappointed

I love being able to read book one and follow it immediately with the next in a series. I enjoyed Dana and Jeffery as a match and love Dana’s character. Her witty banter did get a few smirks from me. However, this book felt much like the first, rushed with many areas of information overload. This story took place in the span of a day. Each of their personalities were strong and opinionated but by the end of the book they seemed washed out for the sake of getting

This book was disappointing to me. Not because I didn't like the characters. Not because I didn't like the story. Not because I didn't like the setting. I liked *all* of those things. This story was disappointing to me simply because it was too short. It was too short to develop all those things.

It starts actually before the previous book in the Grimm Cove series, before Dana even went to SC. Yet, it didn't include the phone call from Poppy that set the chain of events to motion. In fact, it in

Fly with the wind
What an amazing second story in this series! The author had me completely enthralled from the first page. She took the characters I loved from the first book and embellished and enhanced everything about them. I love that Dana didn’t lose any of her snark when she was connecting with her mate while wearing the bits of her enemy. This book is full of so many surprises and was that a little bit of a love connection there at the end? I really hope the author keeps this series goin

Who says life is all downhill after forty? They sure haven't met Dana. When Jeffery, pack alpha and more, meets her he is in for it. Oh, not as much as he'd like. He's given up on finding his mate and has plenty of non-committed hookups. He's amazed at his feeling for Dana and that she keeps turning him down. No woman turns him down.

The relationships with the living-in ghosts, her witchy friends, their relations with special abilities, and finding out more and more about her own abilities make f

The first book I enjoyed. This one, not so much. If you can get past the first 1/3 of the book the rest is better. I feel like some of the others that have read this book, that the author rushed to get it published. It would have been a better read if this story started where the 1st book left off with some of the backstory throughout the book. Instead I felt lost through the first portion of the book trying to figure out what was going on. Table of contents - 1 Jeffrey, 2 Dana, repeat. I like t ...more

Whirlwind in the forecast

Dana doesn't want to believe that she's anything more than an attorney, but she fought a succu-witch with her friends and came out mostly unscathed. Now, darkness comes and instinct takes over. She discovers she's one of the legendary Van Helsings and her mate is a shifter.
I loved Dana's story and how the characters are growing. Marcy is still her same funny self and I'm looking forward to her story. Hope there are more after that, though. I really like Grimm Cove and d

The Fab 13 has done it again! Each and every one of the stories continue to blow me away. The characters are rich and interesting, the settings easily conjured in the mind, and the plot keeps me on the edge of my seat. And Jeffrey and Legs are no exceptions. Their snarky relationship along with a whole set of unusual family and friends continue to entertain.... and then there’s Nonna who will never allow me to hear the word cannoli without a smirk. Great job!

This was phenomenal. I am loving Grimm's Cove! Jeffrey is great with Dana. I love her! She is so feisty and just totally kick butt. Her Nonna is just beyond all things awesome. I love this book. I never review with spoilers but oh when you find out who the man was from the first book with the limo... Ahh, it's too good. I love all of Nancy's books but as a 43 year old this so such a fantastic series! More please, more! ...more

I loved seeing the sparks between Dana and Jeffery in the first book in this series. Mandy did not disappoint with this book. I do not want to give away any spoilers but things aren't always what they seem in Grimm Cove. People who you think are long gone make a reappearance. This story is a must is full of sass, comedy and steamy scenes. I could not put the book down and I CANNOT wait to see what Mandy has in story for us next. ...more

Let me that this series is something new and exciting from Mandy M Roth is a must read . Filled with fast paced action and sexy alpha males. This story however is tailored to the woman in her 40's. Yup you read that right gals like us in our 40's can have it all hot sexy men at this time in our lives , fresh starts but still faced them age older problems of getting older. Why should all the younger gals have it all..... well it HAPPENED to Dana when she least expected it. New life, n ...more

Wow, what a whirlwind of a ride! Dana comes to Grimm Cove with her friends Poppy and Marcy. She feels drawn there but doesn't know why. Meeting the head shifter Jeffery feels wrong, but also so right. When the shift hits the fan, will they come out alive?

Wonderful characters and great world building make this a great read.

Second in the series, stubborn, smart lady, who can take care of herself. Sexy Alpha wolf who’s sometimes smarter than he looks (but not before he comes ll that close, before he realizes what he’s going to lose) She kicks ass, even with all the chaos in her life. He drools and is protective as all ‘get out’, or as much as she’ll let him. Cute, fun and fast read. Anxiously awaiting third.

Loved it

I'm not going to bore you and recount the synopsis. I loved book 1, Poppys story was really sweet. Dana though, she made me laugh and I loved her level of sassy. Nona was just the best. And seriously don't think I could have laughed harder. Couldnt click preorder on book 3 fast enough.

This was such a fun read! Friends Poppy, Marcy and Dana are an unstoppable trio and as they each find their mate they become even more. The references to old vampire lore in this book is ingenious. I want to be Nonna when I grow up.

A force to be reckoned with kind of says it all! I thought this book must have had a shorter page count - by a lot - than the 1st book... but it didn't! I'm a slow reader by choice, I like to take my time and enjoy the books I read. But this one took seemingly NO time to read! I've said before on other books that I couldn't put them down, but this one... this one was different, time seemed to stop until I finished it. Best one yet!! ...more

This is a really cute series and I’m looking forward to the next book. In this one Dana and Jeffrey meet their Waterloo in each other. Dana gets a few surprises from her relatives and both families are just happy that their offspring have met their mates. Lots of fun.

“Jeffrey looked at being an alpha a lot like having a hard-on. If he walked around with a stiff one in his pants all the time, it was uncomfortable for him and just about anyone else he happened upon. But if he had it when needed—well, it could be one hell of a good time.” 0 likes
