When Declan and Troy find their third all bets are off. The two uber alphas have already defied everything by falling for each other instead of fighting to the death. Now that they have found Alerion their life is becoming complete. While Alerion is just as much attracted to the two men as they are to him, Alerion is not the submissive that the council insists they should have, and the council is not taking this very well.

I enjoyed watching these three men find their way. Each man has a unique personality, yet they fit together perfectly. It was nice to see the way Declan and Troy step up when needed for their kind. I liked seeing the three men come together to help and support each other. The attraction that they have quickly turns into something deeper and we can see the love shine through it all. Not only do the three men shine but the supporting characters also have their own stories to tell. I loved seeing everyone come together to help handle every situation that comes up for these men. Friendships and family ties are strong between all the characters. Along the way we are also treated to Troy and Declan finding the perfect mating gift for Alerion which added a great side story to their adventures. This story moves along at a good pace and is filled with a good amount of action as well as humor making this a feel-good read and a nice addition to the Demon’s Mate series.

This book continues the Alien Blood Wars series. It is the seventh book in the series and we are now closing in on what could be the war of all wars. This is Willem and Damien’s story. Willem has taken a chance and brought his daughter to the rest of the men and thankfully they have brought them into the fold. Even though she is young they recognize his daughter to be the Queen that she is. Willem will do anything to keep his daughter safe and coming to his captain and the rest of the men is the safest thing to do but in doing so he risks not only lives but his heart as well. A young human has grabbed his attention and no matter how hard Willem tries to fight it there is no denying the attraction that they two have for each other. When the men must ask Damien to work with them against their enemy. Willem cannot ignore what he and Damien have. As the two work to find their way they must also fight the enemy on all fronts. Will they survive and get a chance at a happy ever after or will it all go up in flames?


I enjoyed this book. Willem and Damien are good together. Damien is a strong young man and he is more than willing to fight for those that cannot. Willem loves and fights with his whole heart and nothing will stop him from helping those that he cares about. It was nice to see the interaction between Willem and Damien. The two have an intense relationship and all too soon it is put to the test. Not only do we get to watch their relationship take shape but we also get to see how the men come together and fight their enemy. The men are a unit and always willing to help each other, it was nice to see the way they all have become a family that will stop at nothing to help one another. There are a few side stories going on as well in this book yet it all ties together and never seems to distract from Willem and Damien it only enhances their journey. The author has created an engaging series and this is a nice addition to it. I am excited to see just what happens next in this world.

Rory’s life changes in an instant. One minute he is with his friends on vacation and the next all Hell breaks out. Life on Earth is forever changed and it seems it all has something to do with Rory and he has no idea how to fix it. As Rory tries to survive, he comes across all kinds of different monsters. One day he comes across a monster who may not be a monster after all. Inkiri comes along just when Rory needs him the most and the two must find a way to figure out what has happened and how to fix it.

The author has built an interesting world with engaging characters. I enjoyed seeing Rory and Inkiri find their way. The two are good together and it was nice to see Rory start to grow with the Inkiri’s support. As the two work on figuring out how they fit together Rory must find out how he fits into what has happened to the world. Alongside the main couple we are introduced to strong supporting characters. Each of the monsters working with Inkiri have their own personalities that draw you in. Their story moves at a good pace and has a nice mix of humor and adventure as well as a nice romance. I enjoyed the banter between the characters and the way they try to understand humans and I am eager to see what Rory and his new friends find.
