Outfoxed By Love: Kodiak Point #2 By Eve Langlais

22705040

Genres:  Romance, Suspense, Shifter

Dual POV’s

The Blurb:

Don’t moose with his fox!

A bullheaded moose doesn’t stand a chance when a fox decides to make him her mate.

Boris left to defend his country still a boy. He came back a changed man. A damaged man.

But Jan still wants him.

A man of few words, Boris has a firm way of saying No, but this determined vixen knows he’s her mate. Despite some less than subtle overtures, Jan has not had much success in getting her bullheaded moose to notice her, but all that changes when her life is put in danger.

Suddenly the damaged soldier keeps finding excuses to come to her rescue, but as far as Jan is concerned, her mate is the one in need of saving.

It will take some subtle maneuvering to outfox her moose into admitting he loves her, but this wily vixen is more than ready for the challenge. And if that doesn’t work, momma’s offered to loan her the shot gun used for her own engagement.

Welcome to Kodiak Point, where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

My Review:

Outfoxed by Love (Kodiak Point, #2)Outfoxed by Love by Eve Langlais

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Outfoxed By Love” Kodiak Point #2 by author Eve Langlais was the second book in this series. As each book in the series ticks by, the factor of mystery grows. Who is really behind all the danger to Kodiak Point?!

“Outfoxed by love tells us about the difficult journey to love for moose shifter Boris and the beautiful arctic fox shifter, Jan, who refuses to be outfoxed by the stubborn moose!

Boris is ex military and the current enforcer for the Kodiak Point clan. He is big, mean, tough and seriously damaged from his tragic experiences overseas. My heart went out to Boris and all he suffered and was still suffering. Yes he is tough but the sexy moose was troubled. Boris loved Jan and had for years. Before he left for his tours, they made plans for their future. But things changed. Boris came home scarred emotionally and physically. Because of this he kept his distance from Jan not wanting her to see how damaged he was, believing she deserved better than him. Good thing for Boris that Jan wasn’t having any of that nonsense! She loves him too much to give up. Yes, Boris is stubborn but no match for a fox as cunning as Jan.

I loved Jan. She loved Boris unconditionally and absolutely refused to give up on him or let him give up on them. She knew being overseas changed him, hurt him but it never changed how she felt about him or the future they planned together. Jan was getting her HEA weather Boris liked it or not! Jan was just as stubborn and brave as Boris. Oh, did I mention her gun collection? Yep, she has an awesome one! Her collection can rival his! Jan knew how to expertly use every weapon she owned and even some she didn’t. Should Boris be worried? LOL!! Absolutely, because Jan was determined to use everything in her arsenal to bring a certain sexy, stubborn moose to her way of thinking.

This story had love and humor and passion with some heartbreak added in to balance it out wonderfully. This all going on while trouble, danger and mystery was abound. There is a sweet HEA and the drama going on with and around the H/h is resolved. However, the aspect of danger still lurks, continuing with the next in the series…”Polar Bared.”

Kodiak’s Claim: Kodiak Point #1 by Eve Langlais

22588093

Genres: Romance, Suspense, Shifter, BBW,

Dual POV’s

The Blurb:

He might growl, but she’s not afraid to bite.

Hands full taking care of his clan, the last thing this Kodiak bear needs is a woman poking her cute little nose into his affairs. But when she refuses to back down—and shows the courage to stand up to him—he can’t resist the allure of a curvy city girl.

She’s mine. All mine.

And when a rival clan thinks to use her to force his paw, he’ll show them why you never piss off a Kodiak, or threaten what’s his.

Tammy is convinced men are all scum, even gorgeous ones like Reid Carver. She knows he’s hiding something. Something big. She just never expected a real freaking bear hid underneath all those muscles. But when the truth comes out and he tries to scare her off with a roar, she shows him not just bears have bite

My Review:

Kodiak's Claim (Kodiak Point, #1)Kodiak’s Claim by Eve Langlais

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Stars! to “Kodiak’s Claim” Kodiak Point #1 by Eve Langlais. This is the first in this series and the first book I read by this author.

I enjoyed this book even though it read a bit slow at first while the author was setting up the story. When the pace picked up I really got into it! Not only was I enjoying the romance aspect, I found myself very curious to find out who or what was causing all the trouble. The author did a good job building the mystery and suspense. Although this novel can be read as a standalone, has an HEA, and the trouble the H/h find themselves in has a happy resolution, the villain is still at large. With each new book in the series, the suspense continues to build and unfold with new mystery and drama.

The introduction to the series tells the story of the town’s alpha, bear shifter Reid Carver and the curvy, beautiful human who turns his structured world on its axis.

Reid is a Kodiak bear shifter and the alpha of his town of shifters and not a man you want to piss off. Reid is also the boss of the shipping company that financially keeps the small, secluded Alaskan town thriving. But recently there has been trouble; the company trucks are being hijacked en route and the drivers are missing. In order to make up the losses, Reid files insurance claims.

Tammy is the insurance adjuster sent to Kodiak Point to investigate the suspicious thefts of Reid’s trucks. Of course she is not thrilled about having to travel to the isolated Alaskan town, nor is Reid thrilled at having her unexpectedly show up to investigate.

Although Reid is instantly attracted and protective of Tammy, he doesn’t immediately act on it. There are too many secrets he has to keep…one that’s beary big! 🙂

Until danger forces Reid to reveal…

There are six books in this series, including a Christmas novella that I can’t wait to read.

Up next…”Outfoxed By Love.”

My Review:

Seeking Pack Redemption (Pack, #3)Seeking Pack Redemption by Eve Langlais

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow this series just continues to be amazing!
My rating…..5 Stars!!!…..to “Seeking Pack Redemption” Pack #3 by author Eve Langlais.

“Seeking Pack Redemption” is the third novel in this fantastic, erotic, suspenseful romance. Not only do we get the story of Thea, Trent, Marc, and Darren but we get to see Jaxon again. If you’ve read the previous book you’ll know who I’m talking about. If you haven’t, don’t worry, I won’t give any spoilers from the previous book.

Thea is pregnant and currently living with her baby’s father. But soon things become dark and ominous around him and Thea doesn’t know what to do. But before she can make up her mind whether to leave him or stay, she is kidnapped by the same evil that has been infecting the Lycans from the prior books.

Trent is on a mission. A mission to find his missing brother. Unfortunately what he finds is his brother’s pregnant mate. Trent is angry, torn and confused but he is determined to protect Thea while trying to find answers. His two pack mates are determined to keep her safe as well. Darren and Marc.

Despicable evil is getting too close and always seems to be one step ahead of Hs/h. Things are not what they appear to be and friends end up enemies.

All the while, Jaxon is determined to atone for his sins. Even if they weren’t his fault. But he only blames himself for his weaknesses. Jaxon will ally himself with Trent and his pack mates if only because they have the same goal. Destroy the evil. Jaxon is not trying to make up for his weaknesses; it is too late for that. But he will fight to assure his own mate is safe forever. I really loved Jaxon. One of the aspects I love about this series is how protective and possessive the males are about their mates. It so sexy and sweet. I love these alpha males!!!

The ending of this book is amazing and full of danger and suspense. The action is fast paced, exciting and there is an amazing HEA for everyone. Well….almost everyone.

Book four will take us forward with new and old friends, as well as a new villain with an even more evil threat. Can’t wait to read, “New Pack Order.” Everything is going to resolved in that book!

My Review:

Betraying the PackBetraying the Pack by Eve Langlais

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Rating…..5 Stars!! to “Betraying The Pack” Pack Two by author Eve Langlais…

This is book two in this series of four. Book one, “Defying Pack Law” is what reeled me in and “Betraying The Pack” was just as sexy, sinful, and filled with suspense and evil.

This story features Bailey and the four sexy wolf shifters that desire her. Yes, that’s right! I said four: Gavin, Wyatt, Parker and Jaxon. These four men were amazing and loving and each had their own distinct personality.

Bailey wakes up one day to realize that she has been kidnapped. Unfortunately, she can’t remember much more than that. Like who kidnapped her and why. Thankfully, Bailey manages to escape. She finds herself running naked through the dark, unfamiliar woods while being chased, only to run into Gavin who is naked as well!

Gavin was relieved to find Bailey. He met her previously in a bar and instantly felt a strong connection to her. Once he realized she had been kidnapped, he and his pack mates set out to find and rescue her. Saying Bailey is frightened and freaked out is an understatement; she has no idea why she was abducted or by whom. Although they don’t know why Bailey was kidnapped and held, Gavin, Wyatt, Parker and Jaxon know that she needs their protection. All four of these men are drawn to her. They will protect her with their lives if necessary and then they will claim her. Of course Bailey is shocked by the fact these four gorgeous men want her. Not to mention the part about them being wolf shifters?!

I loved all four of these wolf shifters. Gavin was intense and passionate and determined to make Bailey his mate. Wyatt was hesitant to claim Bailey at first. He wanted her but he wanted it to be about love. Awwww…….. Parker was her “rock.” He was the one who kept her calm. He was patient and understanding of her feelings. More so than the others in my opinion. And then there is Jaxon. he was the funny one. His jokes were cute and not only balanced out the other men’s personalities, he brought lightness to the dark evil they were fighting against.

This is one of those reviews where I find myself lacking for the perfect words. Eve Langlais is an amazing writer. I was experiencing so many different emotions as I read.

I can’t say to much about the ending without giving it away. I will say that something happens at the very end that leads me to believe there may be a continuation in book three even though there will be new main characters. If that’s the case…I need to get reading!

Defying Pack Law: Pack #1 by Eve Langlais

25068371

Genres:  Romance, Erotica, Menage, Paranormal, Shifter, Vampires, Suspense

Alternating POVs

The Blurb:

Dana fled her pack and their laws to live on her terms, but the price of defiance was her happiness.

Pack law states Lycan females must be shared by two or more males, but young and in love, Dana flees rather than be forced into a ménage. Her life on the run, constantly on guard, has no room for happiness. When her past catches up and brings her back to the home she fled, she finds herself reevaluating her beliefs. To her surprise, she discovers her body and inner wolf want to claim three males.

Could it be that now older and wiser, she can accept the Lycan polyamorous way of life? Or will jealousy and fear send her running again?

Warning: Reading this book may find you panting for three werewolves of your own. Please talk to your doctor before attempting the foursome scene portrayed in this book.

My Review:

Defying Pack Law (Pack, #1)Defying Pack Law by Eve Langlais

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My rating…..5 Stars!!!…to “Defying The Pack” Pack #1 by author Eve Langlais…..

Wow I am so glad I came across this series. It’s sexy, sensual, dark and packed with suspense. The author blended all these elements perfectly. These shifters are seriously hot, hot, hot!

So pack law states that Lycan females must be shared by two or more males. Come on, how tragic! What normal female would want to be forced to share her body with two or more men instead of just one? Okay so I am not normal 🙂 🙂 🙂

As soon as she found the opportunity, Dana ran away from her pack, their ridiculous rules and the man she loved. Dana refused to listen to pack nonsense. She didn’t want to be with more than one man so she fled the safety of her pack and took her chances in the human world. But over a decade later her past catches up with her. Lucky for her she was found at the right time. Things in her world have become dangerous and deadly. Rogue wolves and a despicable, evil are out for blood and revenge. I want to mention this is a four book series. Although each book ends in a HEA for the main characters, the evil continues throughout the series and you will have read on if you want to know the resolution of the evil. It’ll be worth it!

Nathan was the pack alpha and the man/wolf shifter stopping at nothing to find the only woman he has ever loved. For twelve years he has been searching! Once he finds her, he will never let her go, even if he has to defy the very rules he enforces. Dana won’t share herself; she has made that clear by her words and actions. Nathan lost her because he believed pack law more important than their love. He made a mistake then. But now? Nathan won’t force her into their polyamorous way of life. He will do anything to make her happy. If only she will trust him.

John and Cody are Nathan’s pack mates and closest friends. Both John and Cody feel a strong desire and longing to be with Dana as well. Too bad for them because Nathan has no intention of sharing her; not if it means she’ll run again.

But what if she decides she wants them all?
How will Nathan handle this?

I truly loved this book. It was very steamy and I loved how protective and possessive Nathan, John, and Cody are over Dana. Dana was a strong courageous woman and I respected the hell out of her! Nathan was not my favorite of the three sexy shifters. To put it simply…he was, too often, a demanding jerk. John was sexy and sweet and oh so swoon worthy. Last but not least, is Cody. I adored him! He was a sweetheart and he made me laugh.

There are dark times heading for this pack and the suspense had me chewing my finger nails. I can’t wait to continue with, “Betraying The Pack,” with a new set of main characters.

His Baby Agenda: Sons Of Privilege Four By Katherine Garbera

His Baby Agenda

Genres:  Category Romance, Harliquin, Mystery

The Blurb:

A nanny. A single father. A love stronger than revenge? Only from USA TODAY bestselling author Katherine Garbera! 

Ten years ago, someone framed him for murder. Kingsley Buchanan lost everything, including Gabriella de la Cruz. Now the billionaire is back to settle old scores. But he must protect his child. Kingsley needs Gabi—as a nanny for his son. 

But Gabi is no longer a naive girl. She’s a businesswoman with needs of her own. The only thing that hasn’t changed: her hunger for Kingsley. But Gabi won’t risk her heart on a man she can’t trust—unless she can convince him that love is more powerful than revenge…

My Review:

His Baby Agenda (Sons of Privilege, #4; Billionaires and Babies, #68)His Baby Agenda by Katherine Garbera

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

*Given to me by Katherine Garbera in exchange for an honest review*

4 Stars!!!!
“His Baby Agenda” Sons of Privilege Four by Katherine Garbera…..

I have read several novels by this author and truly enjoyed them all.
Although this book can be read as a standalone and does have a HEA for the H/h, there is an unresolved issue that continues with the next book,” His Seduction Game,” (Hunter’s story) with a resolution.

This sweet story gives us Kingsley and Gabi, a wealthy single father and a nanny.

Kingsley and Gabi dated for a short time during their college days, ten years prior. They didn’t have a lot of quality time time together before tragic circumstances tore them apart. Yes, their time may have been regretfully short, however it was enough to form an intimate bond. When Kingsley was framed for murder, his world suddenly became dark and desperate. He didn’t want any of that misery to touch his precious Gabi so he broke up with her immediately to keep her away from trouble and scandal. Unfortunately, to get Gabi to truly leave him, he was unkind and a true jerk to her. Gabi was heartbroken.

Ten years later, Kingsley is back in town and searching for answers to clear his name, as well as Hunter’s, his friend who was also accused of the same murder. While his mission is to do whatever necessary to find answers, he has to find a nanny for his toddler son, Conner. Let me say it now…..Conner was precious! Beyond adorable!

Gabi is shocked and not a little angry that Kingsley barges in her office demanding that she become Conner’s nanny. After seeing Kingsley for the first time in ten years, after he broke up with her, she realized she still is holding a grudge. Gabby owns and runs a successful nanny service that caters to the wealthy. It apparently didn’t matter to Kingsley that she didn’t actually nanny herself any longer. He wanted her to personally look after Conner and he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Gabby says no, of course. Kingsley insists with an offer she can’t refuse. Now the question is, can Gabi keep their arrangement professional or will she risk her heart once again on a man she is afraid to trust?

Kingsley and Gabi have a difficult path to their HEA. They may still care a great deal for each other but there is the fact that Kingsley is obsessed with revenge making that more important then her. I liked Gabi. She knew there was a strong and probable chance she would end up with another broken heart but she wanted Kingsley in her life, so she took a chance. Gabby was smart and strong willed. I think if I found myself in her shoes, I would have acted similarly.

To be honest, Kingsley frustrated me at times. He made selfish choices and was not always honest with Gabi. He was obsessed with his mission of revenge and clearing his name. Because of this he often lost sight of what was truly important. He almost lost Gabi, again. I loved the romantic and charming gesture of love he made to Gabi in the end. And of course he had some help from his adorable sidekick. Conner was so cute!

So all that being said, I really enjoyed this book and totally want to read Hunter’s story, which will bring closure on the mystery behind the true murderer. I think the mystery and suspense was done well. I believed in Kingsley’s determination in finding and revealing the truth. I’m looking forward to find out the truth!

The Blurb:

She needed him to guard her body, in more ways than one…

Ex-Army sergeant and security expert, Cody Matthews recently walked away from his company to work The Lucky B Ranch just outside of Marietta, Montana. The ranch is his refuge, but his hiding out is short-lived when he’s recruited into the Marietta Bachelor Auction and his high school ex-crush bids a small fortune to spend one weekend with him.

But now she’s back in town and someone is threatening her. Code, a natural-born protector, is the only man she trusts to keep her safe.

Spending their weekend date in a remote cabin, Code plays the role of reluctant bodyguard, yet Hayley isn’t going to let the tormented man deny his feelings for her, no matter the threat to her body or her heart.

My Review:

Bachelor for Hire (Bachelor Auction, #1)Bachelor for Hire by Charlene Sands

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars!! to “Bachelor For Hire” Bachelor Auction Series #1 by author Charlene Sands. This is one of four in this series. All books are written by a different author. Marietta, Montana gave us the first Bachelor auction in 2015. Those were some hot, sexy bachelors! So of course seeing Marietta back in the Bachelor Auction business; I didn’t hesitate to get started.

This fun story features ex-military Cody Matthews and his high school crush, Hayley Dawn O’Malley. Hayley is currently a famous Hollywood actress. Hayley needed to return to Montana to take care of cleaning out her late grandmother’s house which was left to her. While there, someone is anonymously threatening her. Hayley asks Cody to protect her and he refuses. She needs Cody’s help; he is the only person she feels safe with.

Cody returns to the Lucky B Ranch after recently walking away from his security company. Something sent him running and he needed the refuge of his childhood home. Too bad he wasn’t expecting Hayley to seek him out for protection. Being her bodyguard is the last thing on his mind. He can’t help her. He won’t help her!

But when Hayley wins him in the Bachelor auction, he doesn’t have a choice. Cody takes Hayley away for the weekend to keep her safe. Cody is reluctant to give in to his feelings for Hayley. He tried that once and it didn’t go as he planned. In fact is was heartbreaking for him.

These two souls are meant to be together. Eventually they find their HEA together however the journey was less than easy. I also enjoyed the small suspense/mystery of Hayley’s stalker. It gave the story an extra burst of emotion.

Wifed By The Mountain Man: Modern Mail Order Brides Romance Three By Frankie Love

31142175

Genres:  Romance, Mail Order Bride, Novella

The Blurb:

“That’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen.” 

She laughs softly. “Reed, you’ve been alone far too long if a woman putting a baby to sleep is the thing that gets you hard.”

“Oh, honey.” I pull her close. “Plenty gets me hard.”

“Show me,” she whispers. “Show me how hard you can get.” 

REED

When a social worker dropped a baby girl off at my cabin, saying she was mine, my life changed.

I moved to the mountains to live life on my own terms, and having a child doesn’t fit into that plan.

I’m my own f*cking man and don’t need anyone busting my balls. I don’t want a wife. I’m looking for a mother for my baby.

The moment I meet Amelia, I know she isn’t just any woman. She has ideas of how a relationship should work, and our views sure as hell don’t align.

But our chemistry is off the motherf*cking charts … and that might be enough to change my mind about what makes a marriage.

AMELIA

After breaking up with the douchebag of the year, all I want is a real man who knows how to take care of a woman.

A mountain man seems perfect, I’ll tame him and he can protect me.

But the moment I walk into Reed’s luxury cabin in the woods I realize this deal is more than I bargained for. I want to be housewife, but a stay-at-home mom? Um. I don’t know if I can hack it.

And even if I can … do I want to? The answer would be easy if Reed didn’t turn me on–and get me off–so perfectly.

I came to the woods to find my happily-ever-after, but I might have found an ending I never expected.

Warning: This book contains all the trappings for a steamy Frankie Love romance. Panty-melting sex, fierce men, and true love. Oh, and there’s an epilogue with all the girls and their mountain men! Eep!

My Review:

Wifed By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #3)Wifed By The Mountain Man by Frankie Love

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars!!!!
Modern Mail Order Bride Romance Three: “Wifed By The Mountain Man” by Frankie Love…

Reed and Amelia…..

Amelia and her two friends recently found themselves down on their luck; recent college graduates with no job and no money and definitely no men. So one night after a couple of bottles of wine and a pity party, they signed up for a Mail Order Bride service. Soon after that night they found themselves boarding a plane to take them to their future husbands and sadly away from each other.

This was my favorite of the three Modern Mail Order Bride Novellas. I found myself smiling often despite how frustrated the Hero got me. Amelia recently came out of a four year relationship. Her boyfriend left her for another woman. His loss, the jerk! So in Amelia’s eyes, this Mail Order Bride placement could be a dream come true. It would guarantee her a husband. Once they got married, he couldn’t leave her. Right? But things are not what she expected. Amelia was only given a small amount of information about her circumstances from the agency. Still, she had other expectations.. Would Amelia ever find her “happy place?”

Reed was a sexy, rugged and gorgeous mountain man. But at first, he was a jerk. Yes, Reed signed up for a wife. However he did not sign up for a relationship. What Reed wanted was a glorified babysitter. Yep he has a baby. He expected his “wife” Amelia to stay at home and raise his baby daughter so he could be free to spend his days hunting and fishing. Everyday! Of course he wouldn’t mind having the beautiful Amelia in his bed at night every now and then. Jerk! Jerk! Jerk!

It took Reed a while, but when he finally realized what his life would be like if Amelia left, he panicked. He was going to make his intensions known. He loved her and wanted to truly make her his wife. If it wasn’t too late.

This was a sweet story. I love when babies are involved. Reed’s baby girl was a handful but she was adorable. Even though Reed was rough around the edges, it was nice to see how Amelia had this mountain man’s gruff walls tumbling down. And I loved how sweet Reed was with his daughter!

I really enjoy Frankie Love’s novellas. They are super short and cute with characters that aren’t perfect but are perfect for each other. This particular story is one I will definitely put on the re-read shelf.

Told in dual POV…
