Blurb

“He’s not a wolf.” 

Devastated by the death of his best friend, Zio is a soldier with one thing on his mind: revenge. Consumed by a conflict that’s raged as long as he’s been alive, he’s had little time or inclination to learn the legends of the shifter world he was raised in.

And he certainly doesn’t have time to deal with a shifter of a different kind, even if it’s for the good of the war effort. For the good of his pack. The fact that he’s already crossed paths with the new face in his unit is almost irrelevant.

Almost.

Do no harm. Give life not death: it’s the oath Devan was reborn to live by, so when he’s sent abroad to embed with a wolf pack as their resident healer, he doesn’t hesitate. In the supernatural world, some bonds are instant–soldiers become brothers, pack become family. But others run deeper and before long, Devan’s at the mercy of instincts he can’t control.

Zio’s inner wolf is desperate to be with Devan, while Devan struggles to keep the pack safe. But as the war escalates, and new love is tainted by anguish and pain, the battles within might prove the toughest of them all.

“I won’t let him die.”

This shifter book will have you on the edge of your seat

47185989._SY475_Escape by Annabelle Jacobs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m going to state from the off that I think this is the best shifter story Annabelle’s written and, as I’ve pretty much five-starred all her shifter novels, that’s saying something.

However, I will say this book falls more on the paranormal than the romance – at this point in the series – although I have no doubt the passion which connects between Cole and Logan will end up being just as steamy and emotionally satisfying as everything from this writer.

The malevolent tensions overhanging the plot of this book are felt from the off, this is not a fluffy shifter world. This is a UK where the once persecuted became the perpetrators of even greater injustices and where those with the wolf compatability gene are forced to join a pack and take the bite.

I loved everything, absolutely everything, about this book, including some surprising geographical stops on the way which reminded me of a holiday I once took in the particular part of England and anything like that always gives me an even deeper connection to a book.

There is such great world-building, and so different to Annabelle’s Regents Park Series. This London and these shifters are nothing like Alpha Cam Harly’s pack. There is a sense of foreboding the minute the McKillan name is mentioned.

A bit road trip, a bit thriller, a bit romance, a bit suspense, all the elements combine perfectly into a plot which drives the reader through the dangerous world we’re being introduced to and some of the people trying to make things just a little bit better.

Book two can’t come soon enough for me!

This feel-good romance just made me smile

ZestZest by Clare London

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just as cute as Accidental Baker, which is where Clare London first introduced Donnie and Will.

This is a romance about two ordinary blokes, one a little bit older than the other but both just fumbling their way through life and trying to make the best of things.

Donnie is such a sweetheart, he’s the one everybody turns too but he finds it hard to put his own needs first.

Will is older and has his Veterinary practice, but he’s a bit lacking in confidence both in bed and in relationships overall.

There are some stumbles on the way to the happy ending but this is really just a lovely feel-good romance.

NothingVentured.jpegBlurb

Mud, sweat, and reluctant romance. Can Aiden and Matt sort out their feelings before race day?

When Aiden agrees to run the Mad Mucker—a twelve-mile muddy slog over an obstacle course—he’s expecting it to be a bit of a laugh. The training will be tough, but Aiden could use the motivation to regain some fitness.

Matt is the sexy cousin of one of Aiden’s coworkers and a last-minute addition to the team. When he agrees to train with Aiden, Aiden suddenly finds the prospect of regular workouts a lot more appealing.

Soon attraction flares, and they embark on an intense physical relationship. Matt doesn’t want to fall in love with a man, and Aiden doesn’t want to fall in love at all, but despite their insistence on no strings, they grow closer.

As the day of the race approaches, time is running out for them to work out how they feel about each other.

My second read reminded me how much I liked this British romance

NothingVenturedNothing Ventured by Jay Northcote

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Re-reading as it is being re-released with a new cover.

Second reading: I’d forgotten how much I liked this very British romance from Jay.

Centred around a team of work colleagues taking part in the insanity of the Mad Mucker, it had all the hallmarks of this author – a Bristol setting, a sense of humour, two characters with real human frailties and strengths.

I loved that Aiden wasn’t perfect, although Matt was approaching that with his personal trainer lifestyle.

I loved that they started out as teammates, then friends before moving into a friends with benefits status and developing ‘feelings’.

The outcome was one which felt totally worked for and I totally believed in their HEA.
