The Mating: The Original Law of the Lycans Story
on Nov. 08, 2011
Not sure what exactly to say other than WOW! I loved this book. I've read all three twice in one week! I couldn't put it down and found it even better on the second read! I kept inserting my own comments to the characters regarding their "blindness" to what was going on around them. I don't normally read romance, but this was such a great story. I enjoyed the refreshing break it gave me from my usual high fantasy books. You're desire to keep your work available free of charge has inspired me to go back to working on my own novel. Thanks for the amazing story and I hope you will come back to this world again someday for another steamy tale! On a side note, my husband thanks you for such great detail that had me waking him up in the middle of the night for a bit of "release" myself!

I'm right with Doris Holmes' review on this one! Absolutely the BEST one of the series! I too wanted to pick up the phone and call Kane! When Elise barged in refusing to leave, I found myself in tears along with her. This was a perfect continuation of the story. Your character development is superb. I've read this one three times and plan to read it yet again very soon. Melody is a bit frustrating at times, but she has just enough spunk in her to keep me from wanting to smack her. Ryne is so hot and sexy, I thought I'd melt in my living room every time he growled! One thing I was disappointed about was the loss of Lucy. It would have been great to explore a relationship with her and Armand in a future book. Thanks for yet another amazing free offer! Wish I could give it 6 stars!!

ARGH! I hate that I'm done and there isn't another one to read yet! I do hope you feel better soon and come back to these tremendous characters! I want to know what happens with Daniel and Tessa! Will Tessa overcome her fears from the nearly forced bonding with a much older wolf? Will Daniel be there waiting for her when she is ready for a mate to care for her? How will Ryne handle fatherhood? And what else can we learn about the history of Melody and Kane? I found those side bits intriguing. I have to admit I found the multiple points of view a bit repetitive at times, but you pulled it off nicely by the time all was said and done. I can't complain much since I read through the night to finish the book, unable to stop. I tried once, but I couldn't sleep until I got back up and finished the story! Please take care and provide us with a new offering soon! I and many others will be watching and waiting. Also, I plan to send a nice donation to my local animal shelter at your suggestion. These books are worth way more than we have to pay for them!!

While I think the latest Law of the Lycans book, Bonded is the best offering yet by Nicky Charles, The Keeping is still my favorite. If it were in paperback, I'd have to buy another copy by now from all the reading. I've lost count how many times I have read this book. Each time, I laugh and cry right along with the characters. If you haven't read this series, start with The Mating. I'm guessing you won't have any problem seeking the next 3 soon after. While some folks seem to be offended by the sex scenes or find the plot far fetched, I think it is superb. Nicky's books deal with so much more than just another hot and steamy sex scene. Her characters have so much depth and reality to them, I just get lost in their universe from beginning to ending of every book. The stories never seem to get old for me. To those who don't like the steamy sex parts, why are you downloading an adult romance to read in the first place? Nicky Charles has incredible talent, and her fan base continues to grow for a reason. She could sell her books, but chooses instead to simply write as a hobby and offer them for free. I hope she never gets too bogged down with all the fan mail to keep writing stories for us.I, for one, will keep reading them as long as she does. I'm also enjoying fun with other obsessed fans on her Lycan Link Facebook page!
The Wolf's Mate Book 2: Linus & The Angel
on May 25, 2012
Another awesome book from RE Butler! As usual, I couldn't put it down, and I was sad when it was over because I wanted to stay in my little fantasy world with the wolves. If you read Wolf's Mate Book 1 and liked it, you'll like this one too. If you haven't read Book 1, READ IT! You'll like it! This book focuses on the story of Linus, but does feature appearances by Jason and Cadence along the way. I liked that we got to see them again but without those characters taking over anywhere in the story. I can't wait for the next book in this series. RE Butler does a fantastic job of steaming up the pages while putting together an emotional ride worth taking with every turn of the page. If you love paranormal romance, you want to read this series!

What a hot, steamy read! Jessyca gets right to the good stuff and spares no details. This story is sure to leave you in a sweat - in a very good way. I look forward to more from this author!

Nothing bad to say about this. It is well written with an amusing twist that leaves one wondering who really won the battle, if anyone at all did. Unlike others, I was glad it was short. It is very hot. For me, personally, it was a bit over the top. Like I said, very well written, it is just abit too much for me, hence 3 stars. It was my first time to read tbis author, and I still plan to try a full novel.
The White Aura

I admit I was a bit skeptical about whether or not I would like this book since I'm not big on vooks written in first pwrson point of view. However, a few chapters in and I was hooked. I fell right into the flow of thr story, and the!well-developed characters kept me turning pages, eager to find out what would happen next. Ms. Tatum handled the twi main character viewpoints perfectly. The love story is endearing and the plot suspenseful. I look forward to the next in the series.

I almost gave this one 5 stars.There were a couple of editing issues that confused me while reading, so I had to back off one star. Story/Writing style/Author - 5 stars. Editing - 4.5 Stars.
I am absolutely NOT a fan of first person POV, but I had no problem at all with it in this book. I even felt like I was part of the story when switching to Cam's POV. These characters are easy to identify with, so it was no problem slipping into their skin and being pulled into their story. Each has their own little secrets they think no one will ever understand. This has Cam fighting against his desire to take Isabelle on as his submissive. Isabelle is coming to realize she is sick of the socialite facade. She doesn't completely understand the BDSM lifestyle and has a terrible introduction, but she wants to learn. Most of all she wants Cam to teach her. He is the only person who has ever been able to see beyond the act to the real woman underneath. She is the only man she has ever trusted to take control. If only she can convince him without revealing too much of her past.
There is a LOT of sensual and sexual tension between Cam and Isabelle. This alone was enough to keep me turning pages, because it never overpowered the plot. A word of warning though: this one ends on a very intense cliffhanger. I felt like a sub teetering on the edge of orgasm while her dom is telling her not yet as he brings her ever closer to the tipping point, but never gives her that final push she so desperately craves.
Finally. I think I've found an author I enjoy almost as much as Cherise Sinclair! If you like BDSM stories, I highly recommend checking this one out. You can't go wrong with free and the first one will probably have you hooked, so be prepared to buy the rest of the series!
