His name is Khazaar Drasurq. He is different from all the other men she knows. He is dangerous. He is unpredictable. To Cassie, he is the most desirable man she has ever laid eyes on. For Khazaar, on the other hand, she exists only to secure the survival of his race. She is a little cog in the big plan the possessive Alien lord is following. As Cassie is thrown into his dangerous world, she soon realizes that she desperately needs something only he can give her. His protection.

As the enforcer of the Torpedo Ink motorcycle club, Reaper lives for riding and fighting. He's a stone-cold killer who turns his wrath on those who deserve it. Feelings are a weakness he can't afford - until a gorgeous bartender gets under his skin. Near Sea Haven, the small town of Caspar has given Anya Rafferty a new lease on life. And she's desperate to hold on to her job at the biker bar, even if the scariest member of the club seems to have it out for her. But Reaper's imposing presence and smoldering looks just ratchet up the heat.

I actually had to laugh in few places. There is some seriously dark content in this book, but man these characters and their abilities (despite being human) are ridiculous. I don’t really like MC books, just not into the passing around of women, but I decided to give this one a try because I like a lot of Feehans work. Anya was annoying, I just couldn’t bring myself to like the girl, some people say she went from strong to a doormat I would say she was just never a coherent or consistent character to start with. She goes from one extreme to another in my opinion and despite all her “kindness and understanding” she really isn’t either without a whole lot of talking her out of running away before “she softens”. The whole group of MC’s just have a crazy ass backstory that read like some dark anime.

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others - vampires, shape-shifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget.... After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence - in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki's have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what's out there watching you.

I felt this could have been a novella. It just didn’t have the meat and bones of the original books to be a part of the series. I felt a bit let down and was hoping for more. These people really felt like they should have been part of a larger story told within.

The writing was good, but coming of the Meg books was a let down for me. Audiobook was performed great.

Whether it's fast cars or fast women, Stefano Ferraro gets what he wants. When he's not fodder for the paparazzi, he commands Ferraro family businesses - both legitimate and illegitimate. While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone - until now.

I really just did not like Grace, I get it dude did some stuff she didn’t agree with but never once did he deserve her treatment and certainly not the one sided groveling that occurred at the end of the book. In the end I just didn’t feel that she deserved him...not romantic.

The narrator made the females sound super whiny and the male lead sounded like a country version of Thurston Howell from Gilligans Island. It felt like I was a child being read a book by someone who liked to make the character voices over the top.

The story had a good plot, I just couldn’t listen to the narration after 20% in.

My whole life has been about waiting. Playing it safe. Be the good girl, don't color outside the lines. Put in the hard work trying to prove myself to Dad, then to my college professors, then to my boss at New World Media. Just waiting for the day when it will all pay off. And right when it was all starting to - I finally had the house, the job, I was even thinking about getting a cat-boom! - my life explodes and suddenly now I'm here and - "All done," the doctor interrupts my thoughts, pulling off her gloves with a loud snap.

I just traveled halfway across the galaxy to meet my new husband. With no women left on Auxem, he should know how to appreciate a lady. Especially me, a lady from Earth! He knows how lucky he has to have me. He knows how far I've come. So why is he acting like such a complete jerk? I know he's used to getting what he wants, but underneath his confident, chiseled exterior, he's hiding a big secret. He barely speaks to me. Now we're stranded together on a remote planet. He's got a perfect body. I hope he knows how to use it.

Have you ever had the feeling you were a stranger? Out of reach, I watched and mourned me. Nothing moved. Breathed. Nothing lived. I was in an alternate universe. No longer an innocent. I had blood on my hands, and I wasn't even sorry for it. I was only afraid for Keiran. Of his reaction when the shock wore off. It would be an explosion. Of hurt, anger, and mistrust. He'd know I lied. And to him...the betrayal born of my good intentions is worse than the act of murder.

I really couldn't get past the first 4 chapters, Lake's stupidity was just killing me!!

The books are frankly too long, the first book at least has a decent story but it really does go on too long and flashback storytelling is overwhelming. Kieran grows and becomes better like Lake wants but she just doesn't seem to give him credit. Lake wants to show Kieran she is strong but really she is stupid and mouthy. I don't know how having the ability be snarky, sarcastic and bitchy translate to strength, but that seems to be how the author has made Lake strong.

My goodness I thought Lake was dumb in the first book, but man did she get dumber as she got older.
