A Charming Premise that Sadly Falls Flat...

I normally love anything written by Milly Taiden. She is my go-to author for quick and growly alpha reads inbetween the longer darker stuff I frequent. She almost never disappoints, as even on her worst literary day she creates books that are quirky, sexy, and flirtatiously entertaining. Her shifters are some of the most protective, self-assured, and strong willed hotties around. Which is why I was surprised at how tame, almost boring, this latest relea
3.5 stars

I do love Halloween stories I do love Milly Taiden's stories. The Hunt her latest release. Milly is an amazingly talented author and one of my go to's.

A not so over the hill lady who has spent a good portion of her young adult life taking care of her mother. Now she's 'learning' to do things for her with a little help from friends.

The Prince of the Pack will need to step up to the plate because of his ailing Father and like most shifters, well mother of shifters. It's all about finding

"Willow Myers loves Halloween. So when some college classmates invite her to a party, her best friend encourages her to go and have some “fun”. Dax Birch hates The Hunt. The shifter event to find mates took his last girlfriend." Really enjoyed this. Couldn't put it down. Great characters, and lots going on. ...more

This is an OK shifter romance, with a likable couple, but it seemed that the couple was more in lust than in love. They just hadn't known each other long enough to be in love. Yes, I know, shifters love their mates immediately, but she wasn't a shifter.

I also thought that the h accepted the shifter stuff a little too easily, especially since Dax didn't explain what it meant before he mated her. There was some confusion over his relationship with his ex, too. She left him because she found her ma

Left a lot to be desired

Willow and Dax
This one left a lot to be desired. A lot of the book drama made you wonder where the rest of the pack was? Willow was nice one minute and then a b**ch the next. Especially in the maze.
And did she or did she not want to be a teacher? One minute she did and then when he asked she was kinda like ehh whatever.
The intimate scenes were kinda bland in this one. Left a lot to be desired. And frankly, Willow just came off kind of stupid. Like she acted like she ha

This book started off SO promising. Good story set up. Sexy AF male. Relatable main character.

But that train derailed. quick.


But I kept pushing through thinking it would get better.

^Me trying to dodge plot holes and general far fetched leaps within the plot.

Okay, okay. Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration. The book wasn't awful by any means, but I definitely feel disappointed.

Didn’t hate it but probably won’t read it again.
A very short simplistic read with silly other woman drama and also kidnapping drama.
Thought what happened with Melanie the other woman very strange and not really needed. The kidnapping by the nutty wolf was enough.
Not really explained as to why Melanie behaved as she did, apart from being crazy. She was the one who wanted to find her mate first.
What was the reason Dax’s dad didn’t deal with crazy Eddie? It is not explained as to why he let him get

I absolutely loved reading this one and I hope there will be in after. A well written shifter romance with some hot hot hot scenes.
Lynn Thinking out loud
Loved the story line and main characters. The fight scenes and the steamy scenes were kind of anticlimactic. The proofreading was nonexistent.

The Hunt

Willow was finishing her degree later then most so when she his invited to a Halloween party she hesitates. But friends talk her into it. Dax usually avoided the Hunt but when he meets Willow he knows he has found his mate.
Loved the book.

The Hunt

This was an enjoyable read.
Plenty of loving, with a dash of danger.
Ex girlfriend, deranged ex pack member, lies and binge eating.
So put your feet up and enjoy the hunt.

Do Not Judge What You Do NOT Understand!

Okay I'll be honest, this may be close to a three stars but I'm so seething mad right now I do NOT CARE! That dig about children who become bitter from taking care of parents has me so fucking furious it's not even funny. Clearly this woman have no Fucking Clue what it's like. When your parents get to the point that they don't have a choice but to live with you or for you to live with them do you HONESTLY believe they're all sunshine and roses when company

Poor Willow. She has had a rough start to life. She gave up her education to care for her sick mother but she never thought of that as a hardship, that's just what you do for family. Her lovelife needs more than a CPR, it pretty much needs life saving surgery! So when she receives an invitation to a Halloween party her best friend pretty much forces her to go. But she is about to get another education she never thought she would need - one in the supernatural!

Dax may be the alpha but he just wan

Ooops! too wrap up to stop reading

Fast and Willow's story was too good to put down. Let me tell you. I started at 5am and could not out down until I was finish. I literally drive to the clinic not realizing it was Columbus Day and that it was closed. Red flag. I should have know the dr.s was closed today. But I had to get crazy down before my appt. Lucky for me the place is open tomorrow morning before my appt. I bumped into a door, missed a step or two. This is how good this book is. I need a m

It's time for Willow to start living and having fun. She's taken care of her sick mother for a long time. When she gets an invite to a Halloween party her friend insists she go. It is not exactly what she expected. They are all given masks but she's still sure she knows no one and is ready to leave when she meets Dax. He's planning to leave as well when they see each other and fireworks (not party planned) go off. She just thinks it's a wild party. As upcoming alpha, he knows it is a mate hunt. ...more

Not my favorite but still good.

Dax is the heir to the wolf pack alpha. His parents want him to find his mate and settle down. Even though the pack has a yearly party called the Hunt he doesn't usually go. His parents and sister talked him into it.
Willow is about to graduate as a teacher at age thirty. She put off school to take care of her sick mother. She has only dated one guy who was a real jerk. She gets talked into going to a Halloween party even when she really didn't want to go.

This is another one of her short books. It was a good, quick read where fate seems to let things fall into place. Willow is single and trying to get her degree as a teacher after taking care of her dying mother. She’s aware of shifters but knows nothing about them. Dex is the son of the Alpha and is being pestered to find his mate. The Hunt is actually a Halloween party for shifters, and they all drink a shot that affects their smell. There is a lot of things happening in a short time, so the st ...more

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This was a short but cute story. I thought Dax was really sweet, he took the time and effort to try to show Willow that he cared about her. Willow has some insecurities that were understandable on a level. I didn't really think the Melanie plot line was needed (in fact it seemed more strange given the overall plot). I think is one of those stories that could have benefited by a bit more length to add some more

Can I just say I LOVEEEEEEEEE that this started out as a Halloween party (best holiday ever!) I liked how part of how they met is without the instant knowing of them being mates. It makes it more exciting and more challenging in bringing the 2 main characters together. As usual there is a plot twist but in this one it felt like there was more going on that wasn't as predictable in some parts. There is great chemistry as usual but I do like how she gave him a run for his money and related to the ...more

2.6/5 ... feeling generous. As books go, this was a short read. Tried it to see if I'd like Taiden's writing style. Unfortunately, it fell flat.. dialogue and story development was awkward, spoon feeding the reader happened too often in strange attempts to expedite the character building or wrap up loose ends, and frankly, there were too many wholes and too little depth or character/relationship development. Now, that said, if you were expecting steamy scenes and were willing to be disappointed ...more
