    "4-1/2 STAR COMPLETE BOOK"
    Any additional comments?

    I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Because all the short stories were together, it felt like a complete book, even though each was a quick look at a romancing couple. The stories progressed in impact, my favorite being about James. The editing needs work because every book had one or more repeated sentences. I never buy more than the first, maybe a second, short book in a series so this was worthwhile and I loved all the characters by the end.

    A lot was asked of Patrick Blackthorne, the narrator. He had a whole slew of different voices to characterize and by the end, they were all in the same short. He did an excellent job, considering. I was only irritated with one of his many female voices.

    Got to give this Two Thumbs Up!

    "Novellas Interconnected Of Werebears and Wolves"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    There are numerous stories in the audiobook, all connected. Each allows you step back at the end for a bit if you want to change audiobooks, but I found them very enjoyable to listen to back to back. You like each character, likeable and and they draw you in. Also since they are novellas and part that causes angst is short lived, which I like.
    I also like revisiting the couples.
    I enjoyed the narrator, he had good pacing and a voice so easy to listen to. I would have liked some Scottish lilt, one of the reasons I like audiobooks is to her ear the accents. This wasn't a deal breaker for me.
    I would recommend if you like shifter stories, worth it.

    "A Great Box set"

    I got this book via the author. I enjoyed listening to the first three again. The last ones fell in line with the others. Book three was not my favorite. It seemed to fall a little flat. Loved Books one and two. The set tells the complete story. Although they are stand alone books it is better to listen to all of them together to get a full understanding of what the stories are all about. I believe they are worth the credit.

    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook was given to me for unbiased review. I love paranormal romances, alpha males funny heroines, the best. This collection gives readers the best shifter romances all in one. The Scottish flair added depth, and culture. This collection has action, suspense, romance and steamy scenes. This is a 5 stars. The only thing i would say is that the novellas were too short, other then that perfection.

    "Glad I Gave It A Chance"

    Shifters have been hiding in plain sight for years. When the strict and selective changes within the shifter community, threaten to pull apart forbidden unions between humans and shifters. A movement arises to bring shifters out of hiding and forge a fragile alliance between the shifters and humans.

    I listened to the first book in this series in 2016. I was enjoying the story until it cuts off abruptly at the end with no resolution. To say I was put out is an understatement. The story was so well written and had a great flow, so to be dumped unceremoniously at the end hurt.

    When the full collection came out, I decided to bite the bullet and give the audiobook a try. I so happy that I did. Scottish Werebear: The Collection is wonderful, it consists 6 novellas and each tells a complete story with just a tease of what’s coming up in the next story in the series. There’s also a couple of short stories at the end of the audiobook.

    My personal favorite it Book 5, but all the stories in this nearly 17-hour audiobook are good. Patrick Blackthorne narrates the entire series and I loved his reading of this fully voiced production. The sound and audio quality is good, although I did catch a couple of segments that had some extraneous sounds.

    I’m glad I got over my snit and gave this audiobook a try. It’s a good story with just the right amount of heat added. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for more audiobooks from Lorelei Moone.

    This audiobook was gifted to me exchange for an unbiased review!

    "OMG!!! This is my new favorite series!"

    It has been a really long time since I have had to listen to or read a series in its entirety in just days. She grabbed me from the first book until the last and I'm wanting more. I am praying that there will be more.

    "Enjoyable set of stories"
    Any additional comments?

    3.5 stars

    Entertaining and enjoyable set of short novellas all combined into one book.
    I had previously listened and reviewed the first 3 books in the series. It was great to dive back into the world of the Scottish Werebear's and hear the rest of their stories.

    I enjoyed the rest of the series just as much as I did the first 3 books. The stories all intertwine continuing the overall bigger story that spans the entire series with each book focusing on a couple and their HEA.

    Large interesting cast of characters along with a mixture of suspense, intrigue, steamy romance and a bit of action.

    Patrick Blackthorne does a good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Good character voices. Even his female voices are good. Nice smooth even pace of narration. Still no sign of any Scottish accent though. A Scottish accent would have added to the overall enjoyment of the stories and characters.

    Editing issues? There are several lines throughout the book that are repeated. Book 4, Chapter 12 there are several repeated lines. Book 6, Chapter 13 repeated line. Those are just 2 examples of times where I was able to write down them down.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

    "Interesting series"
    If you could sum up Scottish Werebear: The Complete Collection in three words, what would they be?

    Intrigue, romance, and great characters.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like that the intrigue of the alliance continues throughout each book. Each couple gets their HEA, but the thing that brings them together continues.


    Did Patrick Blackthorne do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Blackthorne did an okay job, IMO. He did better with the men than the women. Most of the women all sounded the same.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't find any laugh out loud moments or any that brought me to tears. The intrigue and action did get my heart pumping several times.


    Any additional comments?

    Each story is interesting in its own right and did keep me listening.

    Scottish Werebears: An Unexpected Affair
    This was a short story that sets up the rest of the series. The author bring a very interesting plot which goes back many years from the day Derek parents were killed could it have been an accident as they believed or could it have been more. The store moves around Derek and Clarice meeting with a strong pull from the start. There is a little misunderstanding or maybe confusion that the two will have to overcome before even thinking about a relationship plus she must find out what he truly is, understand it and expect it. There is danger near which will come to play in the future books in this series. It was an interesting plot that held your attention with a little mystery.


    Scottish Werebears: A Dangerous Business
    This was a cute read with danger, a little mystery, love story that is a little different but blends very well. The characters were interesting with cross breeding and how they deal with it. We learn more about Aidan and what happened to his parents. Here is where The Sons of Domnall, come into the story they are a secret society of humans sworn to destroy all shapeshifters.

    Heidi is a very sweet wonderful character that won’t back down from a fight. When she and Aidan first me sparks fly. The pull is strong but neither is willing to give an inch. Both are very surprised to find they are not the same kind of shifter. This is a nice romance but pretty clean and very sexy. I enjoyed it.

    We meet Jamie he is the star in the next book. We learn a little about him with is a great starting to the next book in the series. It is a short sweet read the author does a wonderful job of keeping your attention with a very good story line. The ending was good and leads right into the next book in this series.

    Scottish Werebears: A Forbidden Love
    This part of the series fills in a few blanks from Jamie past with a lead to his long lost family member. Things come to a head with The Sons of Domnall and Alliance as they go head to head bring back one of their own. Way more is lost then lives leave family torn in to. Alison is about to get some home truths that won’t settle to well with a few and leaves her life up in the air pulled in to different direction she is going to have to make some very tough decisions. In this book you find out what Jamie is hiding from his fellow Alliance’s. He has had some trying times which leave him with many sleepless nights. He Knows Alison is hiding something as well as who she really is but it seem he is hiding something as well.

    I enjoyed getting to know past characters better and seeing how things were going for them. Alison and Jamie’s story is very touching and at the same time heartbreaking. I am looking forward to the next book in this series to find out just how Mattie turned out. Even though so much as been gained so much has been lost. So many people pulling on wives tales no one knowing just what the truth is makes you wonder just what The Sons of Domnall is basing their information on.

    This was another very fast listen with some great story lines and plot. The characters you can relate to with a believable story line. There is a little mystery and a little action as the two groups go head to head more than once making you hold your breath wondering who will end up on top if any of them will. The ending is very touching but at the same time very heartbreaking.

    A New Beginning
    This story shoots pains right through the heart starting off with the child that came up missing so long ago how it happened and his feelings on that day. The fear along with his broken heart of how he was taken and what he was told really brings home what each child must go through when kidnapped. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to know you turn into something and not know why. Matt’s story is one of the saddest I have ever heard there is a bright side such as it is which still doesn’t take away from what and how it happen. It might start out on a sad note but does get brighter as Matt’s brother brings him home which still leaves Matt feeling lost and alone. This is the story of Matt learning what he is, how to deal with it and the women he loves. Not everything is as it seems there is much danger as one man fights for control taking over many lives for the good of the cause or so he said. We learn those we trust can’t be trusted and those we don’t trust me might want to.


    A Painful Dilemma
    In this addition to the series Henry follows his heart in one area but not another. He believes with his body and soul that Alliance is the best thing that has happened in his world. He became an agent to help his fellow sifters only to find they are now turning on themselves all because one man wants control. He starts looking into issues when he is asked to spy on his fellow bears only to find things he doesn’t like. He finds a kindling spirit in Gail along with wants and needs he doesn’t understand. He has a mate but what he feels for Gail is stronger. Leaving him wondering what in the world is going on in his head.

    Gail takes one look at Henry and said MATE but Henry is taken. They agree to work together for the cause and keep their feeling in check. Gail has troubles of her own with her job and disrespectful agents. She fights her own battles, is a strong women but very caring.

    As these two put the feeling on the back burner they find the leader might not be all that he said he is. He wants to do things that in the long run will hurt those under him and might bring the whole shifter race to death. This is short, sweet filled with a little action and lots of emotion. You wonder what will happen to all the shifters as well as Henry’s mate as she turns the tables against him making a few demands that will rip his heart out. It was interesting to see how this plays out with all the twists and turns the author gives you a very interesting read.


    A Second Chance
    This one holds the end of this series with old school friends seeing each other for the first time in years. Things didn’t end very good for them after one kiss James leave with no good bye leaving Charlie feeling lost and alone not knowing why he left the way he did. It is time for the shifters to make a stand getting control of their lives back. Coming forward isn’t easy and leave so much open from their old boss to the The Sons of Domnall it seems everyone is out to get them. It was very interesting watching how humans took the news of shifters being around them. The question is can they live together in peace or will they be leaving on group of controlling to another one who wants to the same.

    Charlie and James story is touching they have many issues they will have to overcome both seems to be hiding a secret from the other. They need time which they do not have a lot of with humans, The sons of Domnall and the old Alliance trying to get control. This was a very enjoyable read.


    A Scottish Werebear Xmas Anthology
    This part gives you an update on a few of the past characters which left me smiling. One couple has a big surprise they never saw coming. It is a very short and sweet story that really brings closure to this series. That is about all I can say without giving the 3 stories away.

    Mr. Blackthorne’s narration was very good with interesting character voices that blends well with the story. His male voices are just as good as his female’s one. You always know who is talking and what their emotions are. There was one place in book 1, 3 and 5 where I could tell the volume changed just enough that you could tell if you were listening. I am guessing this is when a break was taken. Book 2, 4, 6 and in the bonus story there is one place where he repeated a few words which most likely is another place he took a break. Other than that the volume was very even throughout the audio. There are no background noises this is a very clear and clean audio. Mr. Blackthorne has a very nice voice his normal voice is just as great as his characters ones. I have to say for a man he does a very lovely female voice. His voice did pull me in making me feel comfortable and right at home. I had no trouble picturing when Clarice first sees the bear and feeling her emotions. The narrator does an outstanding job with the passionate scenes really giving the first night of love for each character true emotions. I haven’t had the pleasure of listening to his work before this box set but to look forward to listening to more of it.

    For a short story the author put a lot in a little. There are not many fillers with each word having a place in the story giving it a very believable plot with wonderful characters. I love the mystery and how she deliverers the back ground and the history of the werebears. There were some very intense passionate scenes that could give you hot flashes. However I did think a few sexual words did take away from the story in book one which put it a little on the erotica side the other books are not like that but very enjoyable with passionate and lots of chemistry. The author does a wonderful job of keeping your attention with a very good story line. The ending was good and leads right into the next book in this series.

    "Short wanted a little more"

    The story is fairly good. More modern and has a nice character lay up. It's just because it's a shorter story it takes you from 0-75 pretty quick which I'm not a big fan of as it's not really a realistic set up but hey this is fantasy so ok. I got luck and got the box set. So I didn't feel like I got lead down the garden path and then had to buy another to find out the rest. I received this awesome blessing at no charge in exchange for an honest review. The underlying murder mystery that ties the books together was a added touch for those who like a little intrigue thrown in with their fantasies.
