His kisses taste like chocolate and cinnamon

I was jealous in earlier books when one of the breeds had aphodiasiac hormones in his tongue that made his kisses taste like spices and honey, even more so in the last book when Jonas’s kisses tasted like cinnamon and cloves, but Styx has kisses that taste like chocolate and cinnamon. If there is a breed that has kisses tasting like chocolate and peanut butter I just might have fall in love for real.

The story on this one was good. Styx didn’t have as m

I would have given this book a 5 stars but there was just something about Storme that I didnt like... it might have been her prejudice, it might have been her ignorance.. hell, it could have been all the friggin pouting she did... but I didnt like the way she was throwing all types of nasty hateful things about the breeds.. I understand that she grew up like that but come the frig on.. you have had 10 years to grow out of your ignorance...Styx was friggin adorable but Storme.. I ju ...more

Storme Montague is on the run trying to protect important data that her father had left her after he was brutally murdered by a Coyote breed. It has been ten years of running, hiding and fighting off breeds and Council members and Storme is tired. She knows the breeds will do anything to lure her in and they sent in Styx Mackenzie, a sexy, Scots wolf breed. After one night of passion with him, where she lets down her guard, she is taken by Breeds to the Wolf Compound. Bitter, angry and full of f ...more

Damn this turned out to be one f-----g good read. I almost started to hate Storme, she was so damn hateful and stubborn to the point of pissing me off. I absolutely love Styx, damn what a man/breed. He was so kind, and patient with Storme; almost to good for her.
Ms. Leigh knows how to write steamy, sensual sex scenes, that's for sure. The pace was good but got much better about half way through the book. And the secondary characters where back; I had forgotten how much I loved them in their own
When she was fourteen she witnessed her brother and father's murder at the hand of a Coyote. She's hated Breeds ever since...So what the heck is she doing, ten years later, in a hotel with one.

Well, he doesn't know who she is, he's warm, provides a sense of (false) security, and he's hot in and out of bed. I guess that makes it right.
Yeah, if the first "thesis" were true, but Styx knows exactly who he holds in his arms. The woman he's been chasing for the past two years. The woman who holds vita
Reread: August 2019. Had to lower my rating because Storm bothered the fck outta me this go around.

So when he gains the opportunity to charm and seduce he does so with little effort, ensnari

2.5* Well, on the one hand this book didn't have near as many continuity issues as Lion's Heat. Nor did it have as many grammatical errors. It just takes away from the book when things like that happen, at least for me. On the other hand, I could not stand Storme for about 85% of the book. Also, it is also an all of a sudden change on her part to trusting the Breeds.

Perhaps I am too hard on Storme after the brutal murder of her father and brother at the hand of a Breed however, she just wasn't a

Dear Lora Leigh,

I know your loyal fans would buy your grocery list, in hopes of finding anal on it, but could you please do me a huge favor anyway and hire an editor for grammar errors and word repetition? Because the grammar errors and word repetitions were really annoying. Let me tell you, I was very annoyed by the frequent word repetitions.

Despite that, I enjoyed this more than the last several Leighs I’ve read, perhaps because I wasn’t already familiar with the main characters and h

Styx Storm

The story sets off with the big bang and intriguing mystery that we are accustomed to with Lora Leigh’s Breed series. Lora Leigh is a master at writing erotica. Although the first sex scene seems contrived it is no less exquisitely detailed and leaves you squirming in your seat. Subsequent sex scenes get thrown in at seemingly inopportune moments but they are no less detailed and spicy.

This story continues from Lions Heat where information that is crucial to the Breeds, Council and gen

I really loved this story, as it focused on issues of trust, one of my favorite themes. The heroine has been on the run from age 14, after witnessing the death of her brother and father by a Coyote Breed. Her life is endangered by information entrusted to her care by her father. Ten years later, the good Breeds capture her. Circumstances dictate that they can no longer wait for her to voluntarily bring them what they need.

Hot, hot, hot, emotionally engaging, and well worth the three hours of sleep I missed finishing this book last night.

I love the way Leigh is weaving all of her characters into the books. I enjoy seeing old friends again.
2.5 stars

This book was just ok, for me. I mean, I wasn't expecting an earth-shattering response as a follow up to Jonas' book....but I was expecting something better than this. *shrugs*

I liked Styx and his flirtatious style but I felt that he kept holding back and kept issuing empty threats to Storme. Storm on the other hand, I didn't really like. She was way to prejudiced to make her a likeable character. I totally get why she was so wary and judgemental towards the Breed community, but I felt

Okay. Better than some in the series. The heroine was a prejudiced obstinate twit for most of the book. Good thing there's a mating heat or there would have been no reason for him to love her. Bad editing as usual. ...more

The Perfect Storme with One Styx

I was beginning to get frustrated with this story because the length it took for that dang gland knot to get working. I thought I was going to begin reading where Styx was going to suffer near death. Then Storme was still a bit immature to quite understand that cause in her actions for the breed. As I was reading she seem to have sympathy for Jonas & Rachel's baby, but she also harden her heart. Another great read overall
My main problem with this book is different than most of the other reviewers.

Yes, her hatred of the Breeds did get annoying and she did hold on to it for the majority of the book (but honestly the book was not that long), but I was able to understand why that was. Breeds killed her father and brother in front of her at age 14! And she had harbored a resentment for them even before then (for reasons I won't get into in order not to spoil anything). After that, she spent her whole life leading up

As I've said in past reviews, I love this series! I find each book has become progressively better and more complex. I still love that each book really focuses on the main couple, but still has an overarching storyline that has been developing from the very first book.

This book was all about Styx and Storm. I liked their relationship with each other and the sex scenes were definitely hot. I wish there could have been more character development for Styx, I felt a little cheated. I also thought th
I love me some 'breeds' and I've been reading this series since it debut at Ellora's cave. This book was a hard one for me. I had a hard time liking the heroine. However, I think that was the whole point of the book and Ms. Leigh does the whole 'living with enemy' really well. She also advanced the larger series arc with this book - so for that, well done. The thing I had the hardest time with was the whole 'push/pull', 'will they or wont' they, the endless one note of not understanding each oth ...more

My absolute least favorite of the Breed books. I hated Storme. Should I give the secret documents/chip to the people my dad was helping although they're tricky or should I give it to the child raping, torturers that are always trying to kill me? Hmmm, I'll need 10 years and 5/6 of the book to make my decision, thank you! Styx was better without her. ...more

I always try to give an author a second chance. I read Maverick by Lora Leigh and well… I kind of loathed it. Maverick was romantic suspense and there were a few moments where I thought I might like this author so I wanted to try out a different series from Lora Leigh. Since Styx’s Storm is a paranormal romance, I went in hoping to like this one better. However, after reading this I have to throw in the towel and admit that perhaps Lora Leigh isn’t the author for me.

Storme loved her father and brother. Both of them were intelligent scientists who worked in the Breed labs where genetically altered men and woman were given super human powers when their DNA was illegally combined with animal DNA. These 2 men were deeply sympathetic toward the unwilling victims of science. But there was no way they could escape. When their lab is raided, both scientists frantically try to erase

Wow. What did I think about this book. GARBAGE! From front to back. Uninspired plotline. Terrible writing. Awful characters. Bad editing. It's to bad she didn't write the book that was in the synopsis about the breed slave traders. That book might have had at least an interesting plot. What has happened to this author. I am beginning to think her husband had a lot more to do with her books than we thought. Because her last 3 books have been horrible and COYOTES MATE was just ok. If her husband d ...more
Oh man did I hate this chick!! I really wish Styx had a better mate. She was such a brat and self absorbed! He was super delicious though. I really wish the author would follow through with her foreshadowing! Don't hint and then leave me hanging!! I used to love this series but lately it has been falling off. I will still follow and read but not quite as eagerly as in the past! ...more

If I had to pick one phrase to describe this book it would definitely be the following: hot mess. Even taking into consideration that this series is not for everyone and that the level of violence and/or sexual content in this book would be an immediate turnoff for some, I've enjoyed enough other books in this series to know that this one did not ring my bell on any level. The plot was recycled and boring, the characters were lifeless and annoying, the conflict was forced, the drama was nonexist ...more
Selenity Jade (Coffee Addicts Book Reviews)
I really disliked Storme. She might have been traumatized early on by a Breed, but to blatantly blame the whole race, who are clearly human? It's racist and made liking her almost impossible. If the person who hurt her were black or Asian, would it be acceptable to fear and hate them too? They very clearly are sentient and have emotions, these are obviously not actual animals. There's no excuse for it. The second half of the book was better. Styx wasn't very in-depth character, so even he can't ...more

“I read this forward and knew i'd love the book.

This book is for you.
The men & women, lost & lonely, searching & wary, uncertain & ill prepared for what the heart can lead them into.
Sometimes, love is right around the corner. Its the road not taken that has suddenly intersected with that congested road of life you're traveling, bringing you to a harsh & sudden stop.
It's a look. It's a smile thhat warms you to the depths of your soul, steals your breath, and pulls you aside as that moment in time screams to a halt & leaves you struggling to adjust.
It's the love you didn't expect.
It's the love you didn't ask for, hadn't thought aobut, & you realize it's the love that heals the wounds in your soul.
It's the love that will reveal the person you are, & the life, though never perfect, that you never knew you dreamed of.
Call it destiny, call it fate. Or call it a gift from God.
Whichever, its the dream & the everlasting hope for the future.”
