I have loved this series and to see Paul and Vince finally get married and to have the whole gang together…it was just the very best!! I laughed…A LOT!!! Paul, Vince, Sandy, Kori/Cory, Daddy Charlie, Mattie, Larry, Nana and Johnny Depp…it was wonderful and full of love and laughter and it was beautiful.
Yeah, this was the very final book in the series and TJ Knocked it out of the park!! There was some tears as one would expect from TJ, but there was also some good laughs and it was really great to see the evolution of these characters and to see then off living their lives.
I waited for this book…it felt like FOREVER…the teasers, the wait…I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and when I did…I sat down and was prepared…or so I thought…Yeah…Wulf GUTTED ME!! There were so many heartbreaking moments…I just thought that Wulf wanted me into a puddle on the ground and he got his wish. I Loved & Hated the book in equal measure.
Avril brings the down and dirty and the nasty to so many fans and this book was a great addition to her books. I was anxiously waiting for this book and inhaled every word. I love her books from the very first one and I’ve enjoyed them and reread them when I want good, gritty characters.
I took a chance on a new author last year and became HOOKED on her characters!! Psycho…that man makes me giggle. I totally am hooked on her characters and her writing. I am such a HUGE FAN…can’t wait for her next work!!!
Hell, this series has been on my list from the very first book and even though this series is over…the characters will live on and that makes me happy…but it feels like a part of my heart belongs to them and I’ll never get it back. A WONDERFUL series that you fall in love with.
Yuppers, this year…TJ has really gone and kicked some major booty as he’s hooked me again into another series that I just can’t get out of my head. I’m a willing slave to his characters and where they’ll take me. I am waiting for the next book so that I can know if my heart will belong to me or if TJ just rips it out. We’ll see. This gang of friends (Sam, Ryan, Garry, Kevin, Morgan, Randall, Justin, The King, Sam’s Mom & Dad, & Tiggy…I Love Him The Most!! I love the humor and the emotion that TJ evokes in his stories.
The entire series drew me in and Layla created these wonderful characters that wormed their way into your heart and you just had to find out what happened to Aiden’s husband and his work partner. You are held hostage until you get to the very end!
I have LOVED these characters for years and it never gets old. I swear…I want a Mark Vincent in my life. He is such a good man…who would kill if need be in a heat beat and you should know better than to come after his spook…These two men who love hard and will fight for what’s right…I swear…I look forward to these stories. I reread them a couple times a year and it’s always like the first time.
This was a departure from A.E.’s other work and I have to say that this was a really great story and I read it in one sitting. I just had to find out what these intriguing, well written characters were going to do next. The Vampire King and The Alpha Zenith ( The Alpha of Alpha’s)…yeah…good times and a wonderful start to a good series.
This book was so damn powerful and it was hard to get thru. I haven’t read too many books that hurt…but you know you have to push thru because you have hope. This was that book for me. There is a trigger warning: Dark, and yet ultimately hopeful, this story of true love and rape recovery contains many emotional and graphic scenes of two men making love, as well as some intense scenes of torture. Proceed with care. The author even tells you what chapter that you can skip…I couldn’t do it…I had to know…I’m glad I did…but it hurt.
