Wild <— GOING LIVE IN JUST A FEW DAYS!!!
So… my sister came to my house and saw this cool review copy sitting on my desk. And she settled in, and devoured!! And guess what? She has a review!
P.S. I blushed through it and can’t stop laughing at my sister’s *ahem* descriptions.
Review by Johanne Pearl Couturier
First story: Catch a Tiger by the Tail by Eve Langlais (3.5 stars)
Very short story, good rhythm, lots of secrets kept and a mood that feels like a Clark Gable movie.
I enjoyed the woman character. She knows what she wants and what she doesn’t want and she is the very strong type… you’ll see why at the end of the story but… talking about the end of the story, why is the?%#@&?* is the epilogue so short? Is it just a teaser for the next book? Where is the rest???? Grrr… got me a bit mad because I was not expecting this.
Now I also know there is a prequel to this anthology, by the same authors, called Growl: Werewolf/Shifter Romance. But I want to know the rest of the story!!! boo hoo hoo. Guess I’ll have to wait for the next “one word” title to come up!
Second story: Wild Passions by Kate Douglas (4 stars)
I LOVED the second story! OK, it is a bit “cliché” again… man wants female, meets female, feels female is HIS and they have terrific sex. Well it might sound a bit “fairytalish”… but isn’t that why we love to read those books?
Who wouldn’t want a gorgeous man carrying her packs to a lovely forest cabin and wearing a hard-on as big and beautiful as his smile? And since these girls are at a bachelorette party for the week… taking advantage of a wild wolves’ reserve, to relax and have fun, well… it gives us some pretty hot moments.
I’d go to that little lodge in the mountains ANYTIME to get that kind of magic working. Relationships would be soooo simple!
Third story: Her Perfect Mates by A.C. Arthur (3.5 stars)
OK I was debating here between 3.5 stars and 4… The rhythm of this story is different from the others, a bit slower, but also a bit deeper into the psychology of the characters.
There is a lot of mysteriousness also about it and you are told, a little information at a time, as you read… since the pace was a little slower. I would put it down a few times, but always felt that I had to go back to it to know the rest, to learn more, and then BAM! The story takes a different twist, not at all what I was expecting, and it sure makes me want to read the sequel! All the ingredients are there for that.
P.S. Thank you to the publisher for the review copy.
