This book was a work of fiction but it was also a wakeup call to all young men both gay and straight.  There are gangs of sexual predators out there that will abuse your body and your mind.  I was almost put off this book because of the warning about violence and rape but figured what the hell.  The rape scenes were well done and … Continue reading

First thing that comes to mind when describing this book is how blurbs can be deceiving. While everything said there is true, when reading this story I got to know some very different characters and was faced with surprising plot twists, none of which was emphasized in those few short sentences.

This was a wonderfully good read with yet another spin on shifters.  It lacked that wow factor that many shifter books have but I feel like it had more to do with Ms. Grimm’s writing style than the story itself.  Derek is a werewolf who works for a local animal rescue center.  His love for animals and his wolf often throw him into fits … Continue reading
