My Review:
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Overall: Fun stories. Some I liked more than others but overall good reads. 
*4 Stars*

An Unexpected Diversion - Vella Day
*3 Stars*
I liked that he used his brains to win the challenge. 'Brains over brawn' isn't a normal shifter maxim. 
I wasn't a fan of the humans being superior to shifters theory. I didn't feel like the story should have ended without some resolution about Storm taking over the pack. I also didn't agree with how Chuck was handled. I would have expected that attempting to assault the pack Alpha's daughter would have more severe punishment than banishment. I wasn't a fan of Leo's at all, from the way he treated his daughter and her assailant to the way he was condescending to Storm, overall a douche. 

Waking the Bear by Kerry Adrienne
*4 Stars*
I disliked the lack of resolution. I wasn't a fan of the heroine. She doesn't seem to have the sense God gave a goose, I really wanted to smack her. Also she did a 180 after hearing he was the bear.

Prime Desire by Andie Devaux
*5 Stars*
When I read Broken Prime, my first thought was 'I hope she does a sequel!'. Here it is *happy dance* The prologue does catch up so even if you didn't read Broken Prime, you were still able to read this one without feeling like you walked into the story halfway. I'm glad that Nicolas's life turned around. I was cheering for him and Erin to get their HEA. I loved seeing his brother and sister-in-law too. Thank goodness for her advice on women or Nicolas would be doomed, doomed I tell you! *snicker*

Bear Essentials by Lia Davis
*5 Stars*
I love the heroine, she was sassy and I loved watching her get her confidence back, 'Go get 'em, girl!'. I really like that she took the time to think and talk it over before jumping in (even if the conversation was short). I like that the fight against April was kinda realistic (taking a bigger/stronger opponent down by hitting weak spots and head injuries). I loved that they appreciated her gentle heart and gift.

I am hoping she makes this into a series because I love Davi! She is hilarious and ruthless. I liked the closure they got from seeing Kele/Katherine again.
