Surprisingly Heart Wrenching

I went into this book hoping for some quick and dirty erotica before bed. Now it’s 2.30am. I’ve cried twice, squealed and almost woken my husband up, and had to go search for the kitten so I could have a cuddle midway through.
The story is very sweet, and with a good editor and a few tweaks I think it would be an amazing addition to any publisher’s library.

Kind of Hilariously Poignant

A heroine who is an awful stuck up heiress...who heads animal charities but carries a crocodile birkin...
A hero who is pretending to be a scary alpha...but actually seems sweet..
But my favorite part is the cheeky nods to other werefics, and their issues with patriarchy/underage werewomen/virginity.
Loving it so far, can’t wait to read the rest.

A Song for A Love Story

I'm loving this story!
A fairly straightforward love story/erotica plot based vampire novel, and it's everything I wanted. Lots of good smut and plenty of "mate based" tension.
Punching up, I think you could expand the antagnist angle. We don't get any resolution of why her apartment is being targeted by the Zs or BAs, or why they get chased by the dudes in the SUV..other than just "they're the bad guys, I guess" I would love to see a development of that subplot, and maybe WHY they're going to attack that specific pack of vamps (or any other info you're interested in sharing about them) and about why there are new females, that one vamp that has found *his* mate, etc etc. You've got GREAT subplots humming along, just no development.
If this is going to be part of a series, where we DO develop these things, I would find a way to add that into this current story.
Overall, it's a great love story. A good editor will fix any idom and silly grammar rules, just like any good writer I would focus on telling your super story and let someone else deal with that nonsense.
You have a unique third person present narration style, which is very interesting to read. You have a great voice, and I encourage you to keep refining and give us more from this world!

The Forbidden Love-A Vampire Story

I enjoyed this book overall. The plot itself is fascinating, a high elite society and a servant class is always a quick way to pull me in.
I wish the twist of the Vampires wasn’t in the title of the book (though for people who enjoy the genre it’s an easy way to gain readers) as the slow reveal was very cool. The demonic edge to the vamps was different than has been used in pop fiction lately (very 100% sexy all the time vamps can be boring) so I applaud the author for choosing this route.
I cannot wait to read to sequel.
As with many books on this app, a quick polish by a professional editor will help the flow of the story and simple idiom errors BUT overall the writing style is quite well done (especially the handling of flashbacks and dreams)
Kudos to you, and keep writing!

Normalizing Trauma-And that’s a good thing

I understand that the story is a draft, and I am so excited to read the authors final version.

This story is so important because it helps to normalize women of color in a heroine role, normalizes PTSD and trauma, healthcare of all kinds, charity work, daddydom kink, as well as a whole host of other issues.
Romance novels are meant to be fun and fluffy and sexy, but it’s so wonderful to read a story that also helps to address issues within the real world. I wish that all writers had this courage, to tell a real story was still allowing it to be sexy and romantic.
I’ve enjoyed many other books from this author, and am excited to continue with this one when it is all finished.

I am also so pleased that the writer takes responsibility for perfecting the story, while never being embarrassed about a kink that some are reticent to admire.
You’ve got my vote, babe. Now write the ending and make us fall in love with Nick and Selene even more!!

Author Revelry

As with other books by this author, I expected it to be pure erotic fluff… But I was wrong. This has some wonderful twists and turns already and I’m only a few chapters in.

Rethink Cops

This is going pretty well! I’m about halfway through and I’m enjoying the ride. I expected this to be just a fairly simple romance, but the sly additions of the heroine’s family issues and the sudden departure to a new location is drawing me in! Can’t wait to finish it.

I would caution the author on language, and have a Spanish speaking friend do an edit. I barely speak Spanish after like 8 years of lessons (I have a brain like a colander) and even I am picking up mistakes in the language. Spanish is gendered and there are proper and common usages, so don’t rely on google translate to do your thang. Xoxo

Domineering and Fun

Pure erotica, super fun. The boys are sexy, the girl isn’t an idiot, her friends are funny, and the tumultuous sex is domineering but consensual. I love that the boys are pushy to a fault, but always check with our protagonist before advancing.

As mentioned before, all you need is a slight edit on past and present voice when writing and the occasional grammatical error (which, heck, we all do...that’s why we invented editors) Concentrate on your story telling and let someone else worry about that later. Congratulations on your graduation 🍾🎉 and I hope to read more of the story soon!

A Trio of Trouble

Really loving this so far! It’s all good fun silly erotica. There’s a great subplot bubbling along, and I’m sure plenty of twists in store. I’m only about 1/4 of the way through and I can’t wait to finish.

So damn sweet

I’m loving this story. It’s so cute, and a nice departure from many supernatural romance novels where people just fall into bed immediately (which is never a PROBLEM, lol, it’s just sweet to know that there a nice sweet side around)
I’m editing my review now that I’ve finished:
I loved this story, overall. I’m usually not a fan of first person narration, but the author does a great job of navigating the difficult aspects of such a voice.
My only criticism is that the author is clearly sooo british😂😂 Middle America would never use phrases, idioms, or spellings like she uses. HOWEVER, if that’s my only criticism then it’s still a triumph.
Thanks you for telling this story. Where does it fit into the rest of the story of Lakewood/Bear Creek/etc in terms of timeline?

Wish I Read This First!!

I love this series, all of the community is so great. I just wish I had read this one first, and the others after. I’ve left glowing reviews on all the others and this is no different. So happy! Thanks for all your hard work!

Family of Shifters

I enjoyed this continuation of the Bear Creek novels! I am so happy to have found this series, and now am on the hunt for the first one. I’ve skipped around in the timeline, but I don’t think it matters. I enjoy finding hints of the other stories as sideplots to the main story in each novel.
Can’t wait to read the next one!
Thanks for your creativity and for sharing this community with us. I had never read Shifter novels, usually just fantasy and vamps, and only recently read a were series. I love this mythology of fiercely loyal pack males who love and cherish their mates. Their dedication to family and simple living is a very sweet departure from my usual filthy rich bad boy loner vamps, and I may just be converted!
Thanks again, love the work.

4 for the price of 1

I’m falling in love with this town full of werebears, shifters, wolves, and bitchy town folk. I’m sorry I didn’t read some of the others first, I think I should’ve started with a different one that the one I started with. BUT, that aside, I do love how stuff can be read out of order and not shake the reader. This is a gem so far, can’t wait to finish it.

Beast is Best

Love the simple love story. I would be interested in more from this pack of dudes, Jax and his mate, AND what happens next!
My only suggestion is that the final kill was too easy, we all knew Beast would kick that dumb shit's ass easy! Though, I did love the feeling that Gia was never in real danger, so what do I know? I think if you were ever to expand this story into a larger book or into a series, that want to be just a minor boss battle with something worse coming afterwards.
Loved the smut, you've got a great style. This is my first story of shifters where they aren't wolves, (and are specifically SHIFTERS and not wherewolves) so I would love a little background on that at the beginning (but again, as a stand along story, its just fine)
I wish you all the luck and KEEP WRITING for us, cause you are awesome:-)

Undressed By the King

The book is pretty damn awesome, in terms of basic plot. I didn’t rate it as 5 Stars because I would like to see a bit more character development. The world building is great, descriptors and smut superb. Some of the language is a bit incorrect in terms of idioms and homophones BUT it’s nothing a good process editor wouldn’t fix. I am loving this story and can’t wait to read the ending. Congrats!!

Trapping Quincy

As with other books from this author the story is vivacious and fun! I love how all the series’s books intertwine so well. They only need a quick polish (maybe we are from different places but the idioms sound off sometimes?) to be bookstore ready. I hope this author gets everything she deserves, and the ability to keep bringing us wonderful romantic stories.
