Review: Miss Taken by Milly Taiden


Waking up in some strange man’s bed was never big girl Kira Ardan’s goal for the day. Neither was waking up naked. Wait, naked? Someone had a lot of explaining to do and soon. 

Luke Lyen is at the height of his need. He wants a mate and he wants her now. Finding the woman meant to be his brings out the lust he’s been fighting for days. If only she weren’t so stubborn, he might be able to get her to understand she is his. Then they could move on with dirty, freaky loving. 

The big lion is doing things with his tongue that makes Kira’s brain cells melt. It will take more than a little danger to get this curvy woman to let go of her firm beliefs. She’s not interested in being anyone’s MINE, but maybe he can convince her to be HIS. 

Reader Note: This book is a work of fiction coming from the mind that brought you the Paranormal Dating Agency. There's hot, sweaty, naughty sex, adult language, lots of violence and blood, a BBW heroine with a sassy attitude and a growly lion desperate for a mate. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you're a fan of all things naughty and humor, this is perfect for you. Enjoy! 

My Review:

I love love love Kira!! Milly writes the kind of woman I would hang out with because we would have a lot of common ground!  Kira is strong-willed, stubborn, smart, dedicated, and beautiful.  My favorite thing about Kira is that she has reached the age in her life where she loves herself and what society considers flaws and all,  There is nothing better than not only feeling comfortable in your own skin, but loving it!!!

Luke is a hot as all get out lion with a psycho x stalker.  He likes the quiet life and cooking dinner, Wanting to settle down but not finding anything to write home about he is preparing to hunker down during a storm when he hears a scream.  What he finds ends up finding is more than he ever thought possible!!

This is a yummy start to Milly's new series chalked full of hotness!!  I can't wait to see what is in store for a certain sexy bear!!  What an enjoyable before bedtime read!!!

Review: Scrooge Me Hard by Milly Taiden





ATTENTION READERS: This is a SHORT. This is NOT a standalone full length story. It is intended to be read in order after you read the previous books (1-9).

Paranormal Dating Agency SHORT: BBW Paranormal Shape Shifter Romance

Aurelis Fuentes wants one thing: Children. She’d also like for people to stop complaining about the amount of frosting on her cupcakes but that’s another story. When her scrooge of an ex comes back into her life, she’s not sure what to think.

Reed Stone wants one thing: His mate back. He made a mistake but he’s a changed man. In the spirit of Christmas, he’s hoping she takes a chance and forgives him or at least allow him to explain without throwing things at him.

Gerri Wilder is at it again, only this time she’s got the help of some of our previous couples. Catch up with Tally, Nita, Maya, Alyssa and their men while they try to help Auri and Reed find their way back to each other. This is one holiday they won’t soon forget.

Reader Note: This story contains the use of the word Christmas (a lot). It also features a BBW and a hard-headed wolf-shifter along with humor, romance, love and smokin' hot sex. Sound like your type of book? Give this short a try. Remember that this is a follow-up to the previous PDA books. Enjoy.


My Review:


The one thing I have always loved about a Milly Taiden read is that no matter where the conflict is in the story, you will close that book looking to fall in love all over again (and have copious amounts of hot kinky sex). This is what I refer to as a BBR before bedtime read. It is the perfect length to allow you that warm fuzzy feeling just as you about to drift off.




Another awesome thing about this cute little short? It has all of our favorite couples visiting to help Reed and Aurelis find their own happily ever after with no short supply of Christmas spirit. In fact, this book is sure to get you believing in Christmas magic once more!! Excellent addition to a wonderful series!! Can't wait for the next book!!

Review: Croc's Return by Eve Langlais




Coming home doesn’t always solve things … but it does pave the way for second chances.

Take one deadly bite and, bam, a man’s life is changed forever, or so Caleb discovers when a loss of control leads to him joining the military and leaving everything behind.

Time goes by … years spent silent and alone, cut off from those he loves. Until it’s time to come back, a scarred veteran, in many ways broken and looking for a meaning to his life. Perhaps it's not too late to right some wrongs. Make amends. Kiss a certain pair of sweet lips one more time.

If only Renny would damned well let him.

It doesn’t take Caleb long to realize Renny’s just the thing this croc needs to bring him back to life. Yet, what if he loses control again? He doesn’t want to take nibbling on her thighs to a whole new level.

Too bad, he can’t stay away, especially not when he discovers her secret. Add in a strange creature stalking the townsfolk and there is no way he’s leaving her alone.

Years ago it just about killed him to leave, but Caleb’s a changed man now. A darker kind of animal, and this retired soldier is ready to kill so he can stay.

Welcome to Bitten Point, where the swamp doesn't just keep its secrets, it sometimes eats them. 

My Review:


It is no secret that Eve is one of my favorite authors and the fact that she has a hot new series was just what I needed to get my holiday going!  Meet one scarred and broken mess of a Croc named Caleb.  He just about ruined his life and alienated his family when he skipped town to join the military.  Now hes back and a little desperate to make amends...well as desperate as a split man can be.  It seems that Caleb and croc are two very different personalities, who as would have don't really like or trust one another.  Battling life and its challenges is one thing, having to fight your inner animal on the daily is quite another.  This continuous conflict within himself makes Caleb quite an interesting (and Sexy) character.

Renny on the other hand I found to be a very relate-able character.  After trying to reach Caleb and receiving no response she had no choice but to give up on him.  She was working two jobs just to make ends meat and not getting to much time with her son.  I feel her pain.The thing I loved most about Renny was her strength and fortitude.  She isn't someone you would want to tangle with!

When these two re-connect there is sparks shooting off in all angles.....even though a lot of its anger...lol.  This was a unique read from Eve because it wasn't chalked full of humor and tended to be more serious.  But the sex is still hot and off the chain!!!  It was still an exquisite read and I can't wait to snuggle up and have a re-read!!!

Review: The Professor Woos the Witch by Kristen Painter



Welcome to Nocturne Falls, the town where Halloween is celebrated 365 days a year. The tourists think it's all a show: the vampires, the werewolves, the witches, the occasional gargoyle flying through the sky. But the supernaturals populating the town know better. Living in Nocturne Falls means being yourself. Fangs and all.

Pandora Williams is Nocturne Falls’ most successful real estate agent. And least successful witch. Her magic never has the intended outcome, but she’s learned to live with that. Mostly. Yes, it sucks, but what can she do? Then a hot new neighbor shows up and suddenly her magic works. Very cool, but very suspect. Especially since he’s a total non-believer.

Cole Van Zant likes practicality and absolutes. Things he can see and touch. So not magic. But when his teenage daughter insists she’s a witch—and they’re now living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day—he needs help. Of the witchy variety. Thankfully, his sexy neighbor buys into all that hocus pocus.

Enlisting her help seems like a great idea until spending time together reveals a supernatural surprise about who Cole really is. A secret even he didn’t know. Could Pandora and Cole really be meant for one another or is their attraction too much to believe?


My Review:

As towns go....why can't this one actually exist?  I would move there without a second hesitation!  Welcome to book 4 in the latest in the Nocturne Falls' series!  We have previously had the pleasure of meeting Pandora and Pumpkin...especially Pumpkin  That delightful feline was full on in this book!  Pandora has a lot of problems with her magic which ends up making the book just that much more of a delight to read!

I love that it doesn't start of full on romance...Pandora actually dislikes Cole quite strongly at first.  It was a slow build, not rushing and instantly in love.  This was more of a unique situation because Cole has a daughter who thinks shes a witch.  The commentary will have you laughing out loud in several parts of the book!


There a few twists in the book that I didn't see coming and I love how Kristen always manages to slip one in there,  This was a light-hearted and sweet story that I highly suggest you pick up!!  I fell instantly in love!

Review: Twice the Growl by Milly Taiden






Paranormal Dating Agency Book 1




Talia Barca needs a date. Badly. She uses the services of the Paranormal Dating Agency hoping for a decent guy to take to a family wedding. A wedding her ex-husband has wormed his way into as a guest.




Connor and Theron want Tally to complete their Alpha triad. She's sexy, curvy and funny. But she's human. And they're not sure she'll go for a relationship with two men at the same time.




As if deciding to give two men a shot wasn’t difficult enough, Tally will also need to deal with a threat from the pack. She'll either prove she's strong enough to be an Alpha mate or find herself at the mercy of a vicious opponent.




Reader Warning: This book contains lots of scorching sex (including a threesome so hot it will make your ereader sizzle), adult language (hanky panky with no dirty talk is no fun), and violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with some sarcasm and two hot men on one curvy girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!




My Review:




Top Reasons why, I loved this book:




Reason 1: Menage.....I was so hoping that with this generations leaps and bounds in same sex love, menage would actually become popular too. Alas even though my girls are all about this, the men seem unwilling to jump on board. But since reality has limited us to one man, Milly allows us to at least read about our fantasies!!




Reason 2: Before Bedtime read...I love love love when a book can be read before you fall asleep and leave you feeling satisfied(even if it leaves you a lot tingly and seat shifty)with the ending. I always wake up hopeful and happy after reading one of this lovely authors talented writings.




Reason 3: Shiftersss........Need I say more? Hot manly yummies that can get all furry and do naughty things to you...unlike what a real man can!! LOL




This was a great story about a smart curvy girl(like myself) that got dealt a raw hand in the x category (like all of us don't have one of these). She ended up getting an amazing match in the end. Truthfully I would go through what she went through in a heartbeat to land just one of this hot duo! Be prepared to need to be cooled off and stroked after reading! Milly's books need warning labels!! Loved it!!
