Chosen Pride (L'Ange #3) [Jon & Kelvin] by Mary Calmes

This one was a nice closure to the series with A LOT of things being explained about L'Ange's past which led to a very special present (and future).  The story was mostly about Jon and Kelvin finding their HEA, but it had quite a lot of the characters from the previous books - Quade and Roman, Arman and Linus.

Jon and Kelvin's story started in the last few chapters of the previous installment (I really do think if you haven't read the first two, reading this one would spoiler.. better start at the beginning..), when Jon came to show his support of Arman and mostly Linus when he confronted the ones who cast him out all those years ago even after a horrible abuse he went through.  Kelvin is the "fenrir" the champion of the "Wolf King", he was there looking for whomever was killing off an entire pack. That would be Arman.. When all business is finished and Kelvin and Jon stand one in front of the other it's obvious for the both of them they are mates. The pull towards one another is TOO strong to be anything else.. Yet Kelvin refuses Jon. He has his duties as fenrir - the champion of the king. Heart broken Jon leaves back home.

Fighting Instinct (L'Ange #2) [Arman & Linus] by Mary Calmes

This felt more of a Paranormal novel with a Arman and Linus being destined to be mates, even though it sounds SO unlikely. Yet, it felt so very genuine with how much they circle one another for the past 7 years they have been living in L'Ange. Their banter (like in the previous one) was SO MUCH FUN! and even just listening to Arman battling himself (as he is our sole POV) was SO AMUSING! When not sure if he wants to f&%# Linus or to eat him! hehe that's how it is when you're a predator while your love interest is prey...

We've met Arman de Soto in the previous installment (haven't read it yet? YOU MUST! first, it would make things less complicated, and second and more important - it's AWESOME!). He is in charge of security of the L'Ange estate. Though he is a shifter, a predator, no one, including Quade (the mate of Roman - the owner of L'Ange) who is a Jackal shifter, and an Alpha, can't sense just what exactly he is. One thing he has no problem disclosing, he is not a pack member. Never was and have no intention of becoming a part of.. He had his 4 trusted friends, who were with him in the Marines and now, working with him to secure L'Ange.

Old Loyalty, New Love (L'Ange #1) [Quade & Roman] by Mary Calmes

This book was AWESOME! I LOVED both Quade and Roman and especially their banter and how much they cared for one another and each was frustrated about the way things are between them - somehow on the verge of a real relationship and yet it isn't..

At 35, Quade Danas finds himself the bodyguard of the 17 years old Roman Howell. Quade is a Jackal Shifter but he was banished from his family and pack when he was Roman's age because of his sexuality. His father wasn't willing to accept him the way he is, even if it's obvious from Quade's ancestry and special powers he is the one who suppose to lead the pack when he matures. After years in the military Quade tried to get back but it doesn't work the way he thought and so again he drifts  away from home where he accidentally saves Roman's parents who offer him a job on the spot.

Rhythm, Chord & Malykhin by Mariana Zapata

I enjoyed this one though at too many times I was SO annoyed with Gaby's brother and best friends I wanted to throw the kindle on the wall! Lucky I didn't, ha? ;) I enjoyed seeing Gaby and Sacha get closer together, the so very slow burn Mariana is so great at was also a treat in this one though the setting was a bit uncomfortable for me.

Gaby Barreto's life isn't at its best at the moment, recently dumped by her boyfriend, returning to live with her parents and struggling to find a job now that she has finished college. She truly doesn't have anything better to do than accept her twin brother's offer to join him and their two best friends on a joint tour with another band, her being their "merch girl". Gaby has known Eli's best friends all of her life so it's no wonder Mason and Gordo are not only her brother's best friends but also her own. They are silly and stupid and always get in trouble but she would do right around anything for them, including going on the tour with them. It's going to be close, maybe a bit TOO close considering it's basically 3 months stuck with 11 (!) guys in a bus but she knows she can manage it and the money is going to be awesome!

Loving Irish (The Summerhaven Trio #3) [Ian & Hallie] by Katy Regnery

Though both Ian and Hallie went through hellish 10 years I'd still call this book sweet and endearing. I don't think anything could have been done differently by both Ian and Hallie so maybe that's what life (or rather Katy ;)) was meant to show them or make them appreciate what they can find in each other even more.

The senior year Halcyon "Hallie" Gilbert came to the Summerhaven resort she was different, took her a bit but she was finally maturing and though Ian thought she was cute (as a friend) before, when he saw her NOW his feelings quickly changed. So they spent the summer together, even though Ian Haven, as one of the triplets of the owner of the summer camp, wasn't allowed to have ANY relationship with the guests.. Rules needs to be broken, right? and anyhow who can resist the beautiful and sweet Hallie?

In the Right Light by G.B. Gordon

Truthfully I just didn't connect with this one. It was too short to be realistic romantic wise, at least for me. it felt too fast and the "relationship buildup" felt more like an infatuation.

Danny Holt and James Carver find themselves working at the same project from different ends. James a landscaper, and Danny working artistic lights in a big estate. Though it's what Danny usually does with his artistic talent, James works with his older brother and father who mostly put him off and so their usual clients are more "mediocre", this is a big chance for them yet if they keep their attitude it's not just they won't get better jobs, James would leave as well. He had enough of his father and how badly he treats him... James has his dreams but he doesn't feel he'll be able to pursue any of them with his father managing the business..

Stand by Your Manny (The Mannies #3) [Sammy & Cooper] by Amy Lane

It's been a while since I've read the first book in the series of Tino and Channing and I truly missed them. To get them as the PARENTS was actually great. It was obvious they are an established couple and though they might have their diffrences, I enjoyed seeing these as well. But this story isn't about them, it's about Sammy - Channing's nephew, the one he found himself taking care of when Sammy's mother died 15 years ago.

Sammy Lowell grew up to be a sweet and endearing guy. He LOVES his big family, even if most of them aren't related by blood (or at all) to him.. But never mind, for him it's the opportunity of spending time with so many people he cares about. Channing and Tino truly raised a kid with a heart of gold. Though he isn't a kid anymore.. he is 21 years old and a VERY talented musician looking to explore his abilities as a teacher but also as a performer.
