It is extremely rare for me to give up on a book. Even the ones I give a single star rating to, I've at least finished because I am aware of the time and effort it takes to write a book.

However, when I get to the 27% point in a book and it has been almost entirely sex, or sex oriented, with no emotional content, no content that makes me think of the characters as anything other than literary porn stars, it's time for me to put the book down.

Don't get me wrong, I like a well written sex sce

Another in my "sexy, misunderstood shifters need love too" phase of reading. Sometimes you just want a certain type of book. You now, one where the hot, presumed dead love interest talks the heroine into having a Christmas Eve tryst on the roof of her house. Yeah. One of those. It always makes it so much better when the sexy shifter happens to be the love of said heroine's life and the one she's been pining over since his mysterious disappearance years before.

Up on the Housetop is a steaming sexy paranormal romance story, that I really enjoyed. I was suppose to have been reading another book instead of this one, but by the time I looked at my kindle and seen the name of the book I was too involved with reading it to put on by breaks and stop. This is a great story about finding a lost love. I loved the emotions, passion and connection between the hero and heroine.

First off, this was a First Day of Christmas Free Read special from All Romance EBooks. Download the book for free here

Okay, the plot line could do with some extra work, but the erotica scenes were definitely yummy enough.

This was a new take on the whole werewolf/shifter type erotica paranormal romance for me. Less the woman caught between two packs and more the woman who loves a man who just happened to get bitten by a werewolf. I like how there was a sort of HEA ending, although the plot didn'

What was that?

This story read very fast. I didn't realize it was a short and thank goodness it was free. It's totally for the lonely desperate housewife. Definitely not something I'd normally read but thought maybe it'd get better but it was over before it even began. A total "naughty nooner".

I read this because it was supposed to be a holiday read, but there wasn't really much "holiday" about it, except the time frame. In this one, Zach disappeared about ten years ago. He and Chloe were going to be married, but before that could happen, Zach went on a hike with Chloe's brother and her brother ended up dead and Zach went missing. He had been attacked by a werewolf and survived, which meant he became one of them. In the first several years after becoming a werewolf, the monthly full m ...more
It has an interesting beginning and yes it does start on Christmas Eve but aside from the time of year it's not a holiday story at all. I did like Chloe and that she gave up so much for her family but her life was essentially on hold. Not good. There were lots of interesting tidbits about the werewolves in this world and since this looks to be the start of a series there are plenty of threads left dangling in the end. Zach is interesting but a never did really understand why he waited eleven yea ...more

Hard to review as it felt like the first half of a book! It was a simple plot which was basically just there to facilitate the sex scenes....not complaining about that! It becomes apparent that the wolfboy can only control his "wolf rages" by having sex immediately....which our heroine doesn't mind as she is somewhat of an exhibitionist! I liked it....long lost love returns as a werewolf and proceeds to pounce on girl at every given opportunity (the first couple of times she has no idea who he i ...more

Ok, but unfinished...

If you dislike cliffhanger stories, don't bother. The author kept the story pretty shallow and left the characters undeveloped. There is little character growth but some angst. She could have done better with how Chloe's new bf was using her and her relationship with her parents and teen sweetie better developed with flashback scenes. Nothing in the story made me want to buy the next book. I recommend Chicagoland Vampires for your paranormal read fix.

Some exciting sex scenes, yet it felt a bit ridiculous really. As if a modern 30+ year old woman is going to spontaneously get it on with a complete stranger on the roof of her family home.

Still I can see the makings of an interesting series, with wolf packs in charge of Casinos in Vegas & Atlantic City. And who in their right mind would leave a list of wolf high rollers on a laptop that could be stolen by the rival pack?

This is a story about a poor little rich girl who's fiancée was attacked and turned, her brother didn't survive the attack and died. The fiancée, Zachary, stays away for five years then while on a business trip stops by her house to see her but not be seen...except he ends up having sex with her instead. The story continues on from that point. The sex is steamy but there's a side story going on about Zach's pack and there are a few twists.

Would have given it a high rating if there was more action or angst. The heroine is engaged but that love interest is quickly taken care of. The difficult family situation is quickly dispatched and both hero and heroine seem to be rushing off to their HEA. Also, a lot of repetition in the love scenes, but I will be continuing to the next book to find out how the story progresses.

It wasn't a bad book, but it moved along quicker than need be for the information given. A little longer with some explanations would serve this book well. The four stars are for ease of reading, what content there was (even if it's just mostly smut), and the idea. That being said, It was not enough to persue an interest into the series as a whole.

Intriguing beginning, though there is a bit of an "info dump" in the first chapter that slowed the action. Had some difficulty getting a sense of the heroine's age. I read "middle age" somewhere but got the impression she was younger by what was happening at the start of the story.

Overall it is brief, and set up for a sequel.

I think I am really going to enjoy this series. This first book introduces us to Zack and Chloe who have loved each other forever until something tragic happens to Zack. We get a little backstory, but I wish there had been more. Hopefully we will learn more about these characters as the books progress.

The story was okay. We meet as i would call it star crossed lovers who we forced apart and found there way back to each other. Will be iit be smooth? Will she give up everythiong for him? Will she accept his true self? What will hapen when she learns the truth? What will hhappen next?

I could not get past the first chapter. Who starts a story were the woman has sex with a man that sounds familiar by voice but can't place him, the first night? He over obsessed about being a wolf in the first half too. I just couldn't rap my head about reading any more so I quit.
Simple plot leading up to sex sex and more sex! It felt incomplete. I did not hate it but I had trouble liking it. I heard the series is being re-released... perhaps it will be expanded as well. The whole wolf rage thing was a little weird too. But overall it was an entertaining read.

So-so beginning of a shifter story with some sort of conspiracy.
Typo: page 85 "Only if you want me too" should be "to."

This was very short - it was actually a cute premise, but it jumped a lot.

This was more of a short story. Not much of a plot. Felt like it's whole purpose was to just a teaser. Will not continue with series.

Where's the rest? It just ends in the middle of the story. Too much sex, not enough plot.

Excellent story, but the ending kind of leave you hanging. There is a second book in the series so I will have to check it out to see if it has any more insight.

Just ok. Seemed to possibly be the first in a series but left quite a few things unresolved, which I didn't like. Freebie.

I cannot give a great rating to this book. Dumb story that started out with the two main characters on a roof. After that, the story went downhill fast. Made no sense.
