I absolutely loved this story and highly recommend it to anyone who loves m/m romances. It is a wonderful love story with just the right amount of kink. I don't think I've ever met a more kind and caring Dom. Gun is absolutely the sweetest most loving Dom and just who David needed. As for David you just want to hug him tight and give him all the love in the world.
If you're looking for a well written book that grabs your attention and sucks you in then this is the book for you. Ms. Rhoades has a real talent for combining humor, adventure and romance. Though it could use a good proof reader to fix the typos and it did bog down a little towards the end. Though I've given it a 4 star, if I could I'd give it a 3.5 but since I enjoyed it so much I bumped it up and I would reccomend it to my friends.
For a city girl Elizabeth Reynolds certainly turned out to be tough when she needed to be and I loved that about her. My only problem with her was her thoughts about her weight. That also is my only real problem with this story. It concerns me greatly when I read that she's "plump" and then discover that she is 5ft 3in. tall and weighs 115lbs. That is soooo not plump!!! And then to hear her say, "I'm round enough as it is." and for the H to replay with, "Nothing wrong with a little meat on a woman." This disturbs me because she's thin!!!! I expected the H to tell her she was out of her mind!
I've read many werewolf romances and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at the differences that Ms. Rhoades built into this world.
So overall this was a good book that made me laugh, cry and grip the arm of the chair in suspense. Therefore, I suggest the next time you're in the mood to laugh and cry all while being held in suspense that you read this book.
In the interest of full disclosure I wish to acknowledge that I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Updated review after reading the revised edition.....
Ms. Johnson has done a wonderful job revising "Out of the Dungeon". She's managed to stay true to the original storyline and characters and yet at the same time she's given us more insight into Roman.
I highly recommend that anyone who loved "Above the Dungeon" but wasn't too enamored with Roman in the original "Out of the Dungeon" read this new revised edition. It is fabulous! Roman no longer comes across as such an ass. I can't wait until Book three is released!
Original Review: This was nothing like I'd expected and honestly the way it ended left me thinking WTF?! Can't say more without spoiling it completely so I won't but I seriously this was a total contradiction to things that Roman said. He's a selfish ass!

I received a free copy of Untouchable from the author through the GoodReads, M/M Romance Group's, Don't Buy My Love project, in exchange for a fair and honest review.
This sci-fi, gay romance book is different than most others that I read. Due to the fact that it is not first and foremost a romance nor does it have just one romance. Honestly I'd have to categorize it as a space opera.
While I personally did not like the time jumps nor the lightening quick POV changes I did on the whole find this to be a well written book.
The world building was thorough enough that I was able to picture it and find it believable as were the plot and characters. Though I did find myself having to suspend belief a few times at some of the characters actions and I must say that I find it sad that homophobia are still alive and well even in this far off time. Though of course we do find that some are not as untouchable as they would believe.
