Title: The Alpha's Claim
Author: Holley Trent
My Rating: B+

My Review:
Um, okay? Did I read the same book as everyone else (looking at all the really low rated reviews) because I really, really enjoyed this one.

This story is about Teddy, a human waiter/actor who is tired of getting stiffed by the local motorcycle guys when they sit in his section of iHop super late at night. Jim is a coyote shifter and alpha of his pack. He's also super-rich. He's only been stiffing Teddy's tip because he's hoping to get a rise out of him. That works because Teddy has finally had enough of the crappy tips so he follows Jim out of the restaurant and confronts him. And things progress from there.

Teddy has no idea that shifters are a thing. Jim knows that Teddy is his mate and that he needs him, but Teddy is obviously leery of him, so he decides to slowly integrate Teddy into his life and even into the idea of being boyfriends. Teddy is really leery of relationships. His past has proven that he's not the best at choosing guys to date. To make things even more complicated, at some point in his life Teddy was attacked by a dog/coyote and he's absolutely terrified by them now. Jim is aware that finding out he can shift into a canine form is NOT going to go over well.

I like how naturally Teddy and Jim fit together. At first that isn't obvious, but it quickly becomes apparent that Teddy is a caregiver and Jim needs one of those in the worst way because he's too busy to take care of basic details of his life.

The story felt very natural to know, or as natural as a book about paranormal shifters can be. I liked the story and how things played out in both the pack and the females in Jim's family. That final scene at iHop was perfect and left me with a smile on my face.

Like I said, I truly did enjoy this one. I was in the mood for a quick fun, m/m story and am always good with shifter romances so this one worked for me!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Title: Wolf in King's Clothing

My Rating: A-

My Review:

I am NOT a reader who generally enjoys reading historical, but I gave this one a try and really liked it.

Kent is a captive half-wolf. He has a magical collar that keeps him bound. I'll admit to a little confusion about this because at first I thought the collar kept him from shifting, but later in the story it seemed like he didn't have the ability to shift at all. He's in a midway form...halfway between beast and man and it sounded like he's always been that form.

Despite the confusion (and I'll admit, this wasn't the only thing I was confused about in the overall background events happening in the story) I did really like this story. I was intrigued by Kent and his history. Honestly this book would have really benefited from being expanded and fully fleshed out because the story was awesome. I would love to know more. The explanation of what Kent is made so much sense to how he is. I'd love to see how his and Hadrian's relationship evolves after he's freed from the binding. Just from the background conflict within the packs, I can't see smooth sailing for the two of them and would LOVE to see more for them...when Hadrian is fully Alpha and Kent as his guard. I would buy that book, no questions asked, despite it being historical. I loved them so much and simply wanted MORE!!

As it is though, this book intrigued and entertained me. I hurt for Kent's difficulties. The majority of the story is told from his point of view, so the reader automatically attaches to him more. But there's some intrigue in Hadrian's story, too. Please...I hope there's more to come from these two...

Title: Dark Water
Author: K.L. White
My Rating: A

My Review:
ooh, this one was great. I love a tough, vulnerable military hero and this one featured two of them.

In this book, Benjamin is suicidal. He's lost everything...he lost his sight and the last thing he ever saw was his best friend, Rez, dying. His father is senile and hospitalized and Benjamin is virtually alone...dealing with this new horrible disability and PTSD with no one to help support him. He can't envision a future where he wants to live so he decides to end it all...the same place he lost it the ocean.

The only reason Rez survived is because he's supernatural. He's a kelpie...part sea horse, part man. His magic saved him from his mortal wounds, and it's just been his own healing and his responsibilities to his people that have kept him from going to Benjamin. He also has no idea the extent of Benjamin's injuries. Part of being a kelpie is that twice a year they have to sacrifice a human. Usually they can do this through humans who are suicidal. It's an exchange that works for both of them. So when he sees a human man committing to his death in the ocean, Rez doesn't realize it's Benjamin until he's already been irreversibly marked as the sacrifice. Rez has two days to figure something else out.

This book is painful just in that Benjamin is so depressed and overwhelmed by his new world. Also, he's so relieved to find Rez and sensory deprived (at least that's what he thinks) he has unprecedented reactions to Rez's close proximity. Benjamin has never shown an inkling of being gay before. As far as Rez, his people are sexually fluid although he never told Benjamin that before.

The story is incredibly sexy even with all the emotional trauma. I've never in my life read a story featuring kelpies before and I loved getting to read more about these mythical creatures. I totally loved the story. Both of these guys were SEALS and went through battle together. They're already closer than most lovers are so the gay for you flavor of the story really worked for me. I like it...a lot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two out of three very good stories isn't bad. 16 May 2017
By ButtonsMom2003 - Published on

I haven't read a lot of M/M shifter stories so I was happy to pick this one up to review via NetGalley.

The first story, Wolf in King's Clothing, was just plain confusing to me. It's set in York, England, 1912 but that wasn't the problem. I've read several historical M/M stories and loved them. (I highly recommend the Society of Gentlemen series by KJ Charles and The Innocent series by Victoria Sue.) I didn't want to DNF this story so I persevered until I finished it (it took me way longer than it should have to read a 32,000-word story. I will say the story got better as it went along but I just couldn't totally overcome my confusion. It's kind of strange to me because I really liked the book's blurb. The story itself seemed to be too difficult to understand; things just weren't clear for me and I didn't like that I felt confused and had to re-read portions more than once. I'm not assigning a star rating to this story. I know how hard authors work and I hate leaving a less than positive review of this story. How I react to a book can be affected by a lot of things. At another time I may have felt very differently about this story. Don't let my reaction keep you from reading this anthology.

4 stars - The Alpha's Claim was much better. Teddy, a server in a pancake house, is upset with Jim and his friends because of their crappy tipping. They day they leave him only 73 cents, after tying up his table for over 2 hours, is the last straw; he runs out of the restaurant to confront them. Jim is the Alpha of his coyote pack and they don't know that he is bi-sexual. Teddy is attracted to Jim but he doesn't know what he is and Jim isn't sure how to tell him. There's another problem – Teddy is terrified of dogs. This story had a lot of good points and made me laugh and cry a bit – always a sign that I'm enjoying a story.

5 stars - Dark Water, by debut author K. L. White, was by far my favorite story. I've never read a shifter story about Kelpies before and it was really interesting. It was also heartbreaking in places and very HOT. I guess because this is an anthology the full book blurb isn't shown on Amazon. Normally I wouldn't add the blurb to a review but this one explains the story much better than I can and I think it's worth reading:

[Debut author K. L. White takes readers into the watery depths of the Celtic Otherworld in this male/male paranormal romance

The magnificent Kelpies who haunt the waters, shape-shifting from horse to human, are disappearing into legend. Their numbers are dwindling, and they must take a human sacrifice twice a year to survive. So when Rez, a Kelpie stallion and former navy officer, spots a desperate man about to offer himself to the waves, Rez marks him for sacrifice.

The most talented diver the navy had ever seen, Benjamin D’Arcy has always lived on the edge of death; he's a crazy kind of brave. But now he’s blind and broken, his last sight that of his best friend, Rez, blown apart by shrapnel. All Benjamin wants is to join him in death.

Too late, Rez discovers that the man he so hastily marked is Benjamin—the man he loves, the man he’s crossed oceans to find. Overwhelming joy is tempered by the knowledge that their reunion must be short—the mark of sacrifice has set Benjamin's path. Facing a near-impossible obstacle, Rez must find a way to overcome the mark's power and prove to Benjamin that theirs is a love worth fighting—and living—for.]

I'm a sucker for stories about veterans and this one tore me up in all the best ways. I found the writing compelling and I didn't put it down until I finished the whole story. I think it takes an extremely talented writer to construct a story with as much depth to it as this one has in only 29,000 words. I will be looking for more books by this new author.

A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.
