    Evil Omega by S. Rodman

    Release Date: January 14th I loved the premise of this story! An evil, badass Omega as opposed to the usual kind and submissive ones. Awesome! And in many ways, the read did deliver. So, Silas Northstar is a shifter and a necromancer. Outcast, despised, and feared. He also has a propensity for getting captured and that’s how the story begins. With Silas having been captured by the Westlake Pack, and Dean – a pack alpha – literally dragging Silas off of the pack head Alpha. It’s a strong start to the story, and gets even more interesting when Silas’ heat starts when he’s in Dean’s custody. The dynamic between Silas…

    The Offering (Wolves of Wereduin #1) by Rosary Deville

    Right. So. I might have a bit of a soft spot for MM shifter reads. Or, more correctly, they’re a guilty pleasure of mine. And then I saw The Offering recommended. I read the blurb, I read the warnings, and I still bought it. Maybe I shouldn’t have. Anyway. The story takes place in a universe where completely different rules and morals than our own apply. It’s truly the world of the strong. The weak are used, enslaved, or even outright killed. It’s also a world where, among the wolves, you’re either born to be a dominant or a submissive. Pretty crappy odds for the submissives in other words. In…

    Dragon Ever After (Here Be Dragons #1) by Louisa Masters

    This read was a pure and utter delight! Just the funny, quirky and ridiculous story I needed. So, yes, I loved it. Technically, this is a new series – even though I believe there’s only one more book planned. But this is a spin-off from the Hidden Species series, and the only thing that really distinguishes it from that series is that the overall story arc was concluded with Sorcerers Always Satisfy. Therefore, I wouldn’t call Dragon Ever After a stand-alone. You won’t be able to appreciate the supporting characters, or the world building, unless you’ve read Hidden Species first. Synopsis: Percy, the retired leader of the Community of Species…

    Little Red (Big Bad Wolves #1) by Queenie Wise

    What a story this was! I practically devoured it, it was so engaging. It was a (borderline) neglecting-my-family kind of read where I, when I had to put my Kindle down, was still thinking of the story and counting the hours until I would be able to continue reading. What’s surprising, however, is that Little Red is actually a Young Adult book – and I still liked it! Generally I try to avoid YA reads (like the plague) because they tend to leave me feeling quite unsatisfied. I mean, they can contain all kinds of gore and violence, but even the smallest bit of shenanigans is a total no-no (hypocrisy…

    Wandering a Luminous Sea by Kayleigh Sky

    Release date: July 13th Merik, a merman who’s trying to solve a case with missing mer people, falls for the ex of the guy he suspects being behind all the disappearances. But when he’s started their relationship on a lie, can it ever become the real thing? But instead of coming clean to Jody, Merik’s choice is taken from him when some of the ex’s goons forces Merik back to the sea. How can Jody and Merik ever be together if Merik doesn’t have his legs?  Confession: I’m not particularly fond of mermen. I adore shifter books, but my taste is apparently quite conservative when it comes to what shapeshifting…

    Sorcerers Always Satisfy (Hidden Species #4) by Louisa Masters

    Release Date: June 3rd I’m so conflicted right now. And I have sooo many feelings. This is the last book in the series, meaning I have some grieving to get through. But there’s also some what-the-eff-happeneds that I need to come to terms with. Fortunately, there will be a spin-off. Which is a good thing. Apart from Percy’s story, I need Dustin’s. So bad. Synopsis: This is David’s story. The sorcerer who’s always kept to the background in the previous Hidden Species books. And it’s Caolan’s story, the elf who appeared from another dimension at the end of book 3. Caolan is immediately smitten with David, but David has a…

    King & Queen (RELIC #3) by Maz Maddox

    Release date: May 21st This was such a delightful read! Without a doubt the best RELIC so far. It had everything. Fun, engaging characters? Check. Fast paced action involving fossil thieves and dino-nappers? Check. Quirkiness galore, drag queens, and filthy shenanigans? Check, check, and check. Synopsis: As a member of RELIC, Royal the dinosaur shifter is sent to check out a new fossil excavation, in the event of a new shifter being awakened from hibernation. Blaise is visiting the site for entirely different reasons involving a camera and a live stream. Neither of them expected to stumble upon fossil thieves. Or being chased by an angry Giganotosaurus. It must be…

    A Ferry of Bones & Gold (Soulbound #1) by Hailey Turner

    This is a quite overwhelming read. Not emotionally, it’s non-stop action after all, but with all the… everything! It gave me whiplash. Yet, so many aspects of this book was amazing. But. In the end, the overload and excessiveness of it all lowered my overall opinion of it. At first, I thought that Patrick was such a cliché. I mean, a world-weary, agent with an alcohol problem and a slight death-wish. In his early twenties, no less. But there was an explanation for all that. One that actually made sense. So kudos to Turner for that. And the world-building. It was spectacular and felt very unique to me, with the…

    Hijinks With a Hellhound (Hidden Species #3) by Louisa Masters

    Release Date: March 25th Man, I love Alistair! He’s by far the most fun of all of the Hidden Species characters (so far). Like a big kid that doesn’t know the meaning of personal boundaries but with a heart of gold. So, of course I loved this book! I’ve waited for Alistair’s story ever since I read Demons Do It Better last year. So, to the story. It picks up right where #2 left off. And Alistair is assigned to accompany Aidan, the species’ leader to investigate the community where they believe Tisch is hiding with his followers. But Alistair resents Aidan because of the way he handled Sam’s first…

    Sink or Swim (RELIC #2) by Maz Maddox

    Release Date: March 19 Two dinosaur shifters go under cover as an engaged couple on a luxury cruise ship in order to lay their hands on some stolen dinosaur fossils, that’s the premise of this book. Baha is a Spinosaurus and Jackson is some kind of gigantic, flying fur-lizard. Oh, and they’re gay and secretly has the hots for one another. When they’re in their human forms. That feels important to clarify. So Baha has one personality trait, and that’s grumpy. Meanwhile, Jackson is a sunshine, glass-half-full, kind of guy who isn’t deterred by Baha’s shitty personality in the least. Baha is a member of RELIC and gets the assignment…
