Review: Here Kitty, Kitty!

Here Kitty, Kitty! Here Kitty, Kitty! by Shelly Laurenston
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Angie and Nik
This is probably the best of this series so far. One was tolerable, two was horrid, but this one wasn't so bad. Maybe it was in comparison so it could only get better? or Maybe Angie wasn't so psycho by herself. What ever the reason, this one was ok. There still feels like so much that hasn't been told, more history and character development would be great. There's talk of a war between Pride and Pack and the truce that is created but we don't see that much hostility between the groups. In fact, it seems most get along well. We also never know the whole story as to why the hyenas want everyone dead. The women (Sara, Miki, and Angie) still feel very immature. Their crazy isn't funny. Nik is great, one of the better characters. Still don't like that all these men think that kind of crazy / mean is sexy fun. Still a lot of sex in a short amount of time. This one is the only believable love story. And the epilogue at the end really doesn't continue the story or bring closure as most epilogues do, it's really a waste of words.

And as a southerner, the vernacular used is just atrocious. Here these tigers are supposed to be super rich, multilingual, suave business men, but we're also suppose to believe their redneck, hillbillies. That doesn't work.

Review: Go Fetch!

Go Fetch! Go Fetch! by Shelly Laurenston
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Miki and Conall.

Yeah No.

After all the ways we're shown how bitchy and mean and headstrong Miki can be, the fact that she doesn't make a bigger deal out of being marked and impregnated seems odd. And the scene where the "boys" go talk to him in one room and the "girls" go talk to her in the kitchen made me think of the scene in Grease when they're singing "summer nights".

Review: Pack Challenge

Pack Challenge Pack Challenge by Shelly Laurenston
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Sara & Zach -

I'm not a fan of slut shaming and Sara calls herself a whore just for enjoying sex with Zach. She refers to herself this way several times, but based on her past relationships, she doesn't have a lot of experience with guys. I understand it was probably just a turn of phrase but it seemed glaringly obnoxious to me. I'm also not a fan of the in fighting between her and her friends, grown ass women don't slap and fight like that. Their interactions and name calling felt very juvenile. Overall, I wasn't impressed but I am intrigued to read the next story.

Review: The Boyfriend Makeover

The Boyfriend Makeover The Boyfriend Makeover by River Jaymes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Noah's Story! Loved that this flamboyant character was paired with the grumpy gruff Ky. The sex scenes are super hot, the romance is super sweet, and their separate histories really tugged at the heartstrings. So happy they got a happy ending and it's always nice to visit with Dylan and the gang.

Only complaint is the repetitive use of the word "Hunh", once or twice I can handle but this word was used often in all three books.

Review: The Boyfriend Mandate

The Boyfriend Mandate The Boyfriend Mandate by River Jaymes
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.75 Stars.

I did not like Memphis. I didn't warm up to him until the very, bitter, end. He was such an ass. After the first of this series, I was really looking forward to learning about what made Tyler the ice-man. I feel like Tyler deserved better than Memphis. I can't stand when someone likes pushing buttons and goading others into action/feelings. The whole "I'm gonna make him break" was not fun for me. My favorite scene of the whole book was Tyler's talk with Dylan. It was worth the read just to see them interact.

Review: The Backup Boyfriend

The Backup Boyfriend The Backup Boyfriend by River Jaymes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!

Could not put this book down! So great. Dylan so tough but with insecurities, Alec so smart with lots of quirkiness. Hot. Hot. Hot. but also very touching when they have to deal with the reality of being a couple.

Review: Highlander's Challenge

Highlander's Challenge Highlander's Challenge by Jo Barrett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Tuck is a bodyguard who has lived through hard times. Colin is the son of the MacLean Laird. Tuck travels through time to Colin's world and basically turns his world upside down. He's not used to strong independent warrior women. He's not used to opinionated women. But he ends up loving all of her traits.

There were some grammatical errors and some moments of "well, that just doesn't make any sense" but overall it was a fun read. Truly enjoyed the banter between Tuck and Colin and Ian. I felt she was a bit too pushy to prove just how strong she was and how she could take on all these men only when the opportunities to prove herself against an enemy she failed every time.
