    The Enforcer Enigma (San Andreas Shifters #3) by Gail Carriger

    Coming August 1st I’ve been waiting (very impatiently I might add) for The Enforcer Enigma ever since I discovered this series earlier this year. Because it has all the best things rolled into one delicious package. There’s sparkle, fabulously quirky characters, snark for days and werewolves doing naughty, indecent things. So, yes. It’s awesome. And The Enforcer Enigma didn’t disappoint. It has all those things I loved about the first two installments and more. There are outrageous and fabulous characters of all genders (okay, mostly male. This is an M/M romance after all). There’s banter and snark. And there’s a lovestory unfolding in parallel with a plot including stolen goods…

    Defy or Defend (Delightfully Deadly #2) by Gail Carriger

    Defy or Defend is a romantic comedy set in Gail Carriger’s paranormal, steam-punk Parasolverse and it’s as charmingly whimsical as all of her books. It’s a through-and-through feel-good read that had me smiling from start to finish. The dry humor is to die for. And it was exactly what I needed now when it seems like the whole world is going to shit. However, I was a bit hesitant about this book at first. This is a spin-off from the Finishing School series and follows Dimity Plumleigh-Teignmott, a.k.a. Honey Bee, as a grown-up, working as a spy for the War Office. As Finishing School is a YA series, I ended…

    Abel’s Omega by Ann-Katrin Byrde

    So, Abel’s Omega was a bit of a strange read. It’s the story of Baxter – an Omega who was mated off at too young an age – and Abel – an Alpha who is working his ass off to provide for his pack. The story takes place in a world where shifters are forced into small enclaves and are strictly policed by humans. And in this world, where shifters are second-class citizens and Omegas are the lowest ranking among all shifters, Bax is just trying to give his pups the best life they can have. When Bax’s mate dies and he’s about to be forced to give up his…

    Freebie smut by Kendall Ryan and Kiki Burrell

    Dirty Little Secret by Kendall Ryan I can’t decide if this is the epitome of romance novel silliness or if it’s actually the ultimate romance. Either way, it’s pretty juicy. And chock-full of clichés, to the point where I was practically rolling my eyes (even though that makes reading quite difficult). The juicy-ness however makes it worth it. Maybe. This is a story about Emma the librarian who – on the side – starts working as an escort for the company owned by a guy she’s been stalking and fantasizing about for a year. Gavin, Emma’s new boss and stalking-victim, owns this high-end escort-company together with his two brothers. And…

    Wolfsong by T.J. Klune

    Wolfsong by T.J. Klune is an oldie for sure, but after hearing som many good things about it, reading it and being completely awestruck, I just need to share my thoughts on it. Because this story is utterly overwhelming, there’s just so much to process and appreciate. It’s bloody fabulous is what it is. Objectively, Wolfsong is an M/M shifter romance. But it’s so much more than that. I wouldn’t want this amazing novel to be limited by such a restrictive description. Yes, it’s a love story and yes, one of the guys is a wolf shifter. But this story is about so much more. It’s about growing up, about…

    The Wolf at the Door by Charlie Adhara

    The Wolf at the Door by Charlie Adhara isn’t really one of my typical reads. But it’s an absolutely wonderful mix of several of my favourite genres, and it’s a positively amazing book. It’s an M/M, wolf shifter, romantic suspense story. That’s quite a mouthful, but it’s so, so good. The Wolf at the Door isn’t new either, it’s the first in the Big Bad Wolf series that so far has three installments but more are coming. Which is a good thing because I’m totally hooked. Agent Cooper Dayton works for the BSI, the special branch of FBI that handles crimes involving werewolfs. While Cooper is still recuperating after a…

    Changed – Mated to the Alien Alpha by Robin Moray

    It appears that I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole. I could never in a million years have imagined the immensity of available smutty paranormal subgenres if it wasn’t for my seemingly innocent gateway drug: M/M shifter romance. But now I’ve found a veritable mother lode of pornographic, and often unintentionally funny, novels within the “fucked by a huge alien”-genre. Technically, I think it’s classified as paranormal romance – alien-style – but the fucked category is way more appropriate. And self explanatory. Changed, with the subtitle Mated to the Alien Alpha, by Robin Moray is actually a great story. The Avatar-factor is high though, with some minor differences. First, it’s M/M.…

    Alpha’s Sacrifice by Nora Phoenix

    Alpha’s Sacrifice is an unexpectedly fun read. It’s also gay erotica bordering on porn. So in that sense, it’s awesome. It’s the first book in the series Irresistible Omegas which so far has seven installments. It’s definitely not for everyone though, and that ‘s not even because of the gay raunchiness but for a whole lot of other reasons. First of all, this is a poly-amorous story with four men. Then it’s the fact that the story is set in a somewhat dystopian society where everyone, male and female, are defined and restricted by their inherent position as either Alpha, Beta or Omega. In this world, humans are descendants of…
