C'mon, seriously?!

Look, I understand that some books will have grammatical errors and continuity issues. I get it, really I do. Especially with indie authors...but...but...but...c'mon now! How does the MC go from:

The grimy mirror on the back of the door makes me pause, looking at my blonde wet hair falling around my shoulders...
on page 11!!

Seriously?? Her hair went from brown to blonde in the span of a page??

I won this book through a giveaway in exchange for an honest review.

Man, I really wanted to give this at least 4 stars...but I just couldn’t quite justify it. The plot is intriguing and interesting and does a great job of pulling you in and making you curious of what’s going to happen next...however, I just found the overall book to be lacking substance. And what the heck was that ending? Throughout the book and from reading the excerpt on the back of the book, you get built up on this crazy adv

This is the first book that I have read from G. Bailey and Regan Rosewood and it was pretty good. So this seems to be setting the premises of the story for the characters in the book. So we have great developement for the characters. The main character being Millie Brix being in the system and being bounced from foster homes. She does not know much about her parents so she has nothing to go by as to who they are. It is all a mystery. She ends up going to shifter academy where she meets Hunter, L ...more

Not sure how I feel about this book. The premise is interesting. It's cute. Very YA. But what is throwing me is the pacing. It seems stilted/choppy. It come across as more of an outline then a fleshed out story. Not much depth to any of the characters or their interactions.

This is an interest first book in what might be an interesting series. As always, G. Bailey does a great job with a series in an academy setting. The characters are interesting, but I don't feel like I know them very well. I realize this is the first book in the series, and I am interested in seeing what happens next, but this world is a little different what I usually expect from this author and I am not sure what to expect yet. I will definitely read the next book. ...more

This is book number one out of three in this wonderful start to a brand new series that I am so hooked on. I can not wait to read the rest of this wonderful series that I have loved reading.

Awesome New Series!
I totally have a thing for paranormal RH especially ones with shifters and in an academy setting! I’m totally hooked. This is definitely slow burn so if slow burn isn’t your thing, maybe this won’t be your thing. You can tell the authors are trying to make this a story, there is a plot, it’s not just fluff and fun times in the bedroom, there’s a legitimate plot and mystery going on. I thoroughly enjoy books that have me on the edge of my seat wanting to know what happens next!
2.5 Stars

I’m not sure what it was about this book specifically, but I didn’t really care for it. The book felt very YA for my tastes, and I definitely wasn’t looking for that. I don’t like to read about super young characters in romance books. It creeps me out. The FMC in this book hasn’t even graduated high school yet, though she’s just turned 18.

I didn’t connect to any of the characters. All the males felt very one dimensional. Their connection to each other and the relationships felt forced.

“ Secret societies. Magical boarding schools. Supernatural beings…What could go wrong? ”

I love school / academy reads and this is a fab one to read! With a whole host of supernatural beings, shifters, dragons, sirens, vampires and witches, this makes for an exciting and intriguing first book! Fab storyline and great characters this reverse harem style read will hook you and leave you wanting more!

3.5 stars for this new PNR academy RH series.

I really enjoyed this concept for a new RH series and I really like the MC and the setting they authors have created for this PNR academy story. I thought the plot was well paced and the detail issues I sometimes have with G Bailey's writings were not a problem in this one. I thought the twist towards the end was great and I am super excited to see where these authors take the relationship between Boots and her suitors haha. I already am diving into

What a great start to a new series by G. Bailey and Regan Rosewood. I am a huge fan of Gem's and have followed her from the beginning. I love her unique takes she has on her stories. How she writes, reveals, her characters and how she links her series. Regan is a new author for me but I really like these two together. Honestly they write so well together that you would just think it was one person.

So as I said before I am used to Gem making stories her own with twists. Here in Crescent Wolves we

"Crescent Wolves was a really good story. Life didn't treat Millie so good and the academy meant an opportunity for her to discover her true self but what happens if there are lots of secrets, lies and lots of unanswered questions. But luckily Millie got some help and OMG what help she got! One of the things I loved the most was how Landon, Hunter, Shade, Silas and Millie develop through the story. All of them were different with their own qualities but what I loved the most about them were thei ...more

***I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.***

This is the first book I have read by G. Bailey and Regan Rosewood together and I loved it! This book was great!

After a while, reverse harems all start to seem the same with slight differences. Not that I mind in any way! I still absolutely love them! This one was much different than I expected.

Millie has had a tough go at life moving from foster home to foster home. She ends up in the shifter academy and doesn't make many friends at first

Great new series

I can see this series growing with every book in to something huge and that you wont want to put down.
First we meet Millie walking home to her foster parents in the rain. When she gets in her foster dad gets violent so she runs away. From here we see her go through a couple twists to then be found and taken to shifter academy. Here she meets Hazel who becomes her friend and who happens to introduce her to Landon.

Millie was a foster child passed around from house to house. When her latest foster father threatened to hurt her she got the hell out of there. She ends up in an abandoned warehouse, where some squatters tried to rape and Rob her when she unleashed the power inside that she had no idea of. Now she is enrolled in a private academy for the supernatural. One place she thought would be safe but as she finally discovers no place is safe. This was great and I cannot wait for the next book.

At first she's a bit timid at the academy, but once she gets friends and feels more comfortable she really starts to shine with confidence. I'm excited to see her connections grow with the guys. But also investigating the secrets and lies the academy is keeping or trying to keep. ...more

Fun series opener!!

Like every book G. Bailey writes, she takes a common concept and redid it to add her own unique flair. Regan is a new co-author for Gem who I am unfamiliar with. The co-write was done flawless with minimal discontinuity or context errors. Like most of Gem’s co-writes I’ve read, the plot flows seamlessly and isn’t noticeable that 2 different people collaborated on the story.

Now this story...like I said, it is a common theme and concept but with its own unique twist to make it

I always enjoy G Bailey's books but this one... wow was BAD! What happened??
Normally I am hooked on the first page and I was skimming chapter 1.
The story is so inconsistent … her hair color, eye color and number of different types of shifters continually change.
Brix is saying one chapter she just wishes she could be scooped up by a fairy godmother and saved THEN she gets basically 2 and she says oh hell no you can't make me go to a free school with food and board and education. You are homeless

I usually like G Bailey but this was a DNF and return for me.

The sample ends at chapter 3 before you have any sense of the book. Upon purchasing the book I had immediate remorse.

I like the trope. You have a girl in foster care who finds out she is a shifter and that shifters are a thing.

I like that an attempt was made to have the main character push back on the idea of shifters being real or running off to join the world. A lot of books in this trope totally skip that and you have the MC just
