In this book we get to meet four different women who are thrown together because of divorce. Maddie, Vicki, Katy and Maxie all come from different worlds yet find a special bond together from the first divorce support meeting that they have together. In this book we get to see each woman find her true soul mate. Seeing each of the woman and their men begin to bond and find love was a great read.
I loved seeing each woman’s transformation as they build their friendship. Maddie opens up and finds herself again after regaining her courage and self esteem. Victoria realizes what her ex and their marriage did to her and she finally lets go. Katy finds out just what she did wrong in the past and decides to fix it becoming a better person for it and Maxie becomes a stronger woman after the fight for her life that also brings her a wonderful savior.
I loved all of the men each of them adore their women and want nothing more than to keep them safe and happy. I enjoyed every story in this book. It is fast paced and keeps the reader interested all the way to the end. I truly adored Kellen and Kale. While each man is great these two really endeared themselves to me. Kellen and his love of karaoke was hilarious. He seems to love it even more than the women do. 
How many of us have wished that we could fix our lives and find love? This author does a wonderful job of showing us four great women who have done just that. This is a book that should not be missed.

This author is such a tease. She lured me into this series with the first book, Caveat Emptor: Charmed Lover, and I had to read and review this one. Now she leaves me hanging on, waiting for the next book, Caveat Emptor: Provoked Lover.

Ryver is a human who owns a vampire for home security reasons. When the charm that has kept him docile and subservient fails, they became lovers. She was ordered to turn him back to the mages in a mandatory recall, but she couldn’t do it. She couldn’t give him up and goes to his “world” in vampire territory.

Theron is a vampire who had been captured, trapped, and forced into obedience to a human. As his controlling charm failed, he became more and more her true lover. He isn’t willing to give her up or to have her jailed for not turning him back to the mages. He takes her with him to his home, but can he keep her safe there?

Great characters and they grow stronger with each book.

A hot one night stand leads to two changed lives.

Kacy Bonds is a law student and an exotic dancer in a club favoring shifters to pay her way through school. She doesn’t want a shifter for a mate. She isn’t sure what she wants except her law degree.

Enter Nash Reed, a sexy private investigating wizard, who is on a case. His problem is that meeting Kacy changes his life. Not only are they beyond hot together but also he needs her.

This is definitely a short, hot story.

I love this series, which began with Badland Warriors: Vikings. The warriors in these stories are hot, hot, hot! And this story especially touched me.

Two podmate warriors, Lysander and Calix, took in a third warrior, Thanos, when his own podmates were killed. Bonding between the three men is crucial but it has been difficult for Thanos. He holds his body and his complete trust back, fearing rejection when they learn the truth about him.

Artemis is a female warrior and more than capable of taking of herself and these hard warriors. She also knows she is their mate. The three men know it as well, but unless they can free Thanos of his past their complete bonding is at risk.

Wonderful characters, strong conflicts, emotional depth, and definitely some very hot sex.

This is the second book in the author’s Companion series, which began with Stranger Than Fiction. You don’t need to read the other book first, but I’m sure you will want to read it at some point. I really enjoyed the characters and the twist with the heroine being a writer who uses her skills in a unique way.

Vivian is a romance writer who believed she had written a tale of a trapped vampire assassin character from her imagination. The story hadn’t been a “story” at all, but Niall talking to her and her magical words had freed him. Freeing him has revealed that she is his Companion and blood servant, but the relationship could be deadly for her.

Niall is a vampire protector with a strong connection to Vivian. But humans and the Consulate he works for don’t go well together.  He fears for her safety and yet can’t give her up.
