Cracking opener to this new Haven Hart-set series

53059882._SY475_My Whole World by Davidson King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Great start to this new series from Davidson King.

It’s set in the Haven Hart world but not directly related and so works as a standalone.

I found the pacing of both the romance and the main suspense plot worked well and built up tension in an organic way.

Both Atlas and Toby are compelling characters and I found them really sweet together. I loved how Atlas was able to move on from a painful part of his life because of the sweetness of Toby’s heart.

There’s an excellent set of secondary characters who are going to make up the rest of the entries in this series as I understand it.

I’m very interested to see if Toby’s friends Shane is going to be up next with Ledger, aka DJ Edge.

This author has a way of making plot threads involving crime lords and wannabe bad guys, which sound totally over the top, work seamlessly.

The relationship is sweet and spicy and I felt the genuine connection between both men.

When a bear and an incubus meet in the woods…

Poisonwood-fPoisonwood by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When a bear and a demon meet in the woods, what happens?!

What happens is the absolute delight that this book was.

It’s short (ish) but it still manages to pack a whole lot of story into its pages, a really sweet and quietly amusing tale of a bear shifter and an incubus who meet thanks to some sisterly witch manipulation.

Caleb is all grumpy lumberjack type, Jasper is a twinky sweetheart who can’t stand having to sexually feed on humans without them having informed consent and is slowly starving himself.

The meet/cute is simple but effective, they fall in love over a relatively short period of time but it never feels like a shot of instalove but a relationship development that intensifies as they spend time together.

A wee bit of a misunderstanding involving Jasper’s ass of a half-brother, some more sisterly interference on the parts of both characters’ supportive siblings and a nice happy ending is the payoff.

Loved it.

This paranormal shifter romance is a laugh-a-minute romp

48122504._SY475_The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard by Charlie Cochet

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was absolutely just what the doctor ordered! Charlie Cochet and shifters is a match made in hilarious heaven and this one is a real belter.

I laughed so many times reading the antics of ocelot shifter Prince Owin and his stoic and helplessly in love bodyguard Grimm.

This book is a tonic for anyone who just wants to read a lighthearted romp through a canine filled adventure in which a prissy cat shifter really does find his perfect match in a wolf alpha.

It’s sweet, a bit steamy in places, it’s hilarious – did I mention how much I laughed yet?! and it’s just a light read which had me smiling from start to finish.

My only complaint is that it’s too short! I wanted more of this utterly delightful pair. Oh and there’s a brilliant guest appearance from Hellhound Solomon, his mate Cody, and Walt from Macy Blake’s Hell to Pay

I can’t wait to read more in the series and to find out what’s going on with King Alrick and his steward Jean because there’s definitely a tale waiting to be told there!

Classic Ed, this has spicy and sweet in a perfect combination

Changed Hart (Harts Bay #2)Changed Hart by E. Davies

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is classic Ed Davies, it has an almost perfect mixture of sweet and spicy.

I’ve not gone for full marks in my rating only because, for me anyways, I found I was wishing Colt was just a little bit older so that I could fully embrace the whole sexual domination aspect.

That’s not to say that there is a need for an age limit to know what you want in the bedroom, or on the sofa 😉 and they definitely had loads of chemistry.

But Colt’s vulnerability in the rest of his life and his leftover anxieties and fears because of his history gave me pause when it came to this one element.

Ed certainly never made the narrative feel uncomfortable or silly, Rain and Colt just worked as a partnership as friends right from the off and I ultimately got with the programme as their relationship developed. YMMV.

The rest of the story was right up my alley though. I really like this new setting and the small town vibes and close-knit friendships.

I liked how Rain found his own inner strength to know he wanted to take a chance with Cole and I loved how the latter dealt with the big dramatic moment and found his own way of overcoming his vulnerabilities.

The split in two family arc is also fascinating for me and I can’t wait to see how that develops.

Great solid opener to this new small-town romance series from Ed

Hard Hart (Hart's Bay #1)Hard Hart by E. Davies

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

I do like Ed Davies’ style of writing and the way there’s always a sweetness at the heart of the narrative.

I’ve only not rated this one higher because I felt the middle part of the book had an odd pacing where all of a sudden, both Jesse and Finn started second-guessing and doubting each other.

I say odd because, up to that point, they’d been communicating pretty well and moving their relationship on in a steady and believable manner even though only a short period of time had passed.

The major conflict in the book is going to run through the series if I understand it right. The tensions coming from the fall out between two sides of the Hart family.

It all wrapped up a little neatly here but, honestly, I didn’t care too much about that because Jesse and Finn were just too cute together and rather steamy.

Things happen over a fairly short time period but, again it didn’t feel instalove-y because the chemistry between them was clear.

Now I’ve just been surprised at who the next book is about as Rain Hart, Finn’s cousin, is the next family member under the spotlight but his love interest isn’t who I expected.

Om looking forward to seeing where Hart’s Bay goes next.

Could be my favourite RJ romance yet!

single 400 x 600
Single
by R.J. Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well that might just be my favourite RJ romance yet. Single is a beautiful combination of just enough angst, with plenty of heart and a healthy dose of steam to keep things on the boil.

With a great sense of family, both blood and found, and a wonderful cast of secondary characters and interesting setting, this series is shaping up to be a cracker.

I loved Asher and Sean, I liked the slow burn of their friendship, coupled with the hot sexual attraction which smouldered for a while before bursting into flame.

Add a cute kid, a Labrador named after Captain America, a single dad support group and the mix is perfect.

Bring on Eric and the mysterious Brady!
