    Now if honest I don't very often give light comedy romance stories the full five but having been transfixed by these characters and the absolute hilarity of the beginning I actually feel it deserves it. I first read about Zeke in Real Men Heal and to be blunt wasn't impressed at all. He came across as hot headed, gauche and generally lacking as an Alpha.

I first read about Zeke in Real Men Heal and to be blunt wasn't impressed at all. He came across as hot headed, gauche and generally lacking as an Alpha. However everything I thought about him gets turned on its head in this book because we see him trying oh so hard to maintain his Pack , write wrongs and generally look after those who need him. Ok so so far I've made him sound perfect which isn't the case because he still needs tempering and that my fellow readers is when Val gets to strut her stuff ! Val might have teeny anger issues but she's never going to get taken for granted. Trying to centre herself means a long overdue catch up with a trusted friend but that's like stepping into a whole new battle. Chloe isn't in town but her big brother Zeke is and boy does all of Val like what she sees. Slight problem though as Val isn't supposed to know that Werewolves exist because you know pain of Death and all that . Stilll Vals going to have some fun with the behemoth and if there's fun to be had why not throw in a Chihuahua just for good measure ! Absolutely hilarious situations here but just enough romance and side plots to make it an interesting read. I look forward to these stories and love that there's always something surprising going on. I defy anyone to read this and not have a smile on their face. This voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,liked it,made me laugh out loud.. but Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,liked it,made me laugh out loud at times.. but Val.. Nope,sorry,just couldn’t relate ...well per say... Ok,Zeke was driving me crazy with his whole,”No, can’t be my mate ,she’s human.” Even if we knew aliens,and Vamps and shifters and all the others walked among us I’d still wanna say the word “imperfect” was created for humans.... even on our best days the humans as a race can be just one big ginormous hot mess.... Especially if Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,liked it,made me laugh out loud.. but Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa,liked it,made me laugh out loud at times.. but Val.. Nope,sorry,just couldn’t relate ...well per say... Ok,Zeke was driving me crazy with his whole,”No, can’t be my mate ,she’s human.” Even if we knew aliens,and Vamps and shifters and all the others walked among us I’d still wanna say the word “imperfect” was created for humans.... even on our best days the humans as a race can be just one big ginormous hot mess.... Especially if you look at our governments of late,but watching Zeke’s prejudiced behavior make him dumb and ignorant and wasn’t always fun to watch,even if Val’s behavior in getting back was funny as all get out at times.... But was strong and dominant as my personality can be,I’m not any where near the hard A Valerie is,and even with the anger I have in side me at times I can’t ... I just couldn’t connect w/her or Zeke .... while I love a good sex scene I found myself skimming them because,if your not connected to the characters it’s just words ... And while skimming those scenes I became more and more disinterested seeing him fight between having full sex w/her and keeping his distance between him and the human he wasn’t ready to admit was his mate....and after skimming almost two chapters that was annoying.... Then,then at around 80% for him to finally pull his head out and admit he’s fallen in love with her and wants to be her mate,the beyotch pulls back playing the “we can’t I’m human bs card”, and even though she was just saying hours earlier the army was empty and lonely 😞 and she really didn’t have anything to go back to... She. Pushes. Him. Away... And I’m so W. T. F. Seriously ? We’re percent80% thru the book,you want him,you’ve already thought about being his mate,and you’ve said you have nothing really to go back to in the army to yourself... And even though you see yourself as this big bad A alpha female ,your too cowardly and lacking in self awareness to go after the man you want ? Both you and the H are always mentally patting you on the back for going after and taking what you want but when the man you want tells you he loves you,like the coward you truly are you hurt him and back off instead ? O, hell no beyotch! I struggled thru 80% of the book and your ungrateful cowardly A is gonna act like that ? F, No! If you want me to buy into that ? Have her playing hard to get and the entire book, not literally pushing him up against a wall and trying to tear his clothes off one minute and then pulling this so kinda stunt at 80% of the dang story... To me a strong woman isn’t just some one who can stand up for herself and can knock a guy on his A if he gets to fresh/pushy with her,it’s also someone who is self aware and owns who that are and is at least in the process of being ok with who they aren’t and when a man they care about tells them they love them, if they’re scared they admit it and try to talk it thru... They don’t act like this... This was ok,had its funny moments but the MC’s we both too hurting and messed up for a short story... These two needed more than a week together and maybe not a “slow burn” but at least a medium one... this was not the story for two characters as troubled as these two were/are.. I didn’t like it but maybe you will...

    Just tanking my rating average with these 3 star reads lately. They're just too easily forgettable and nothing really stands out. This one got 3 instead of 2 stars because the female MC was a badass Army Captain with a lot of potential. Unfortunately, the author wasted it in favor of a plotline that's never tied up and the entire story feels incomplete. I have a couple more ebooks by this author to go through, but so far I'm not impressed. Just tanking my rating average with these 3 star reads lately.

    This was by far my favorite of both series I love the strong female character whom I could really relate to being a veteran. There was no ambiguity with Valerie she is who she is like it or not. She was strong and capable. I also like she was not afraid to to make the first move with Zeke. I also love you both Cecilia Kyle and Marina Maddix embraced diversity which is comely not seen in this genre. The story kept me intrigued from beginning to the end.

    I thought it was good. Neither are virgins. No cheating. I liked the H more than the introduction of his character in the last book. I just wish he would have pulled his head out of his butt sooner.

    This is an OK shifter romance, but it was too short to have enough character development. I would have liked more backstory on both Zeke and Valerie. I really liked Zeke and Valerie, but thought that he would have been a little less tolerant of how she teased him. He was the pack alpha, after all, and was not used to anyone standing up to him. I will say, though, that I thought the way she teased him was really funny. Since he didn't know she knew about shifters (or that he was one), she had a lo This is an OK shifter romance, but it was too short to have enough character development.

Since he didn't know she knew about shifters (or that he was one), she had a lot of fun teasing him. Once he told her they were mates, though, I thought they were good together. Overall, it was a quick, mildly entertaining read. It does feature instalove, but that is typical in shifter romances. If you are looking for a quick shifter read, with some steamy scenes, this is a good choice. My rating system is below. 1 star -- Hated it, or did not finish. I usually only give this rating if some of the content is truly objectionable to me, like if one of the main characters does something really awful, and gets away with it. 2 stars -- Didn't like it. This rating usually means that I thought the writing wasn't very good, the editing was terrible, I didn't like the characters, or it had other major flaws. 3 stars -- I liked it, but had some minor issues with it. This rating means that there were minor editing issues, the story needed more character development, it was just too unrealistic, or had some other fairly minor issue. The majority of books I read get this rating – I do not consider it a bad rating. 4 stars -- I liked it a lot. This is a high rating for me, and I rarely give a higher one. 5 stars -- I loved it, and will probably read it again. Very few books are good enough to get this rating from me. The ones that do are usually classics.

Val and Chloe bonded as college roommates and have been best friends since. Val knows Chloe's secret and the ins and out of being a shifter. They may not speak for weeks or months at a time, but when they reconnect, they pick up were they left off. Val unable to reach Chloe, heads to her home town. An unintentional bar fight, lands Chloe in jail. Chloe's name has her older brother, the Alpha, Zeke Soren, coming to her rescue. Val finds herself strongly attracted to Zeke and can't help messing with him when he tries to hide what he is while she is staying at the pack house. Zeke has a strong attraction to his little sister's best friend. His wolf is calling her mate, but Zeke doesn't accept that a human could be his mate. The more time he spends with Val, the more he sees she is the perfect mate for him. Trouble has come to pack lands in the form of real estate developer, Dick McNish. He is after the public land bordering pack land. He has the mayor and a few judges in his pocket. Fast paced, a little steamy. Val is a strong alpha female. Zeke is man/wolf enough to let her be who she is, at least once he gets over the fact she is human and his mate. Felt bad for Levi, yeah, he is not the brightest crayon in the box, but Val really pulled a b!tch move on him just to goad Zeke. Ends in a little cliffhanger as things are far from resolved with Dick McNish.

All she wants is something to eat and a good nights sleep she figures she can start fresh in the morning. Too bad an overzealous wolf decides he has taken a liking to Val. He learns quickly that not all humans are weak and can be played with. Zeke is having his own problems in the pack without having to deal with Chloe's old college roommate to add to the mix. However one sniff when he walks into the police station tells him not only has he found Val she's his mate. Can these two find a HEA or will the lies that they have to tell stand between them and make that impossible? This is another amazing hit by these authors. This book can be read as a stand-lone but I would recommend reading the series in order to avoid revealing any secrets. It does have its ups and downs I really want to tell you about. However I don't want to ruin it for any other readers. I will tell you this book will grab hold of you and not let go until the very end. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

That’s when she acquires Fang as her faithful companion. She figures if her mother doesn’t have an issue with her boyfriend’s treatment of the tiny dog then she doesn’t deserve her. Gotta say, I thought she should have given him a taste of his own medicine. After taking Fang and leaving she heads out to see the only other person in the world who meant anything to her, her college roommate, Chloe. She knows Chloe is a wolf shifter but has never told anyone. She’s been trying to get in touch with her and is rather worried as she isn’t answering her phone. She arrives in town, tired and hungry. After checking into a motel she goes to the only place open at that hour of the night, a bar and grille and the story takes off running and ends with her in jail for starting a bar fight when she defends herself from an unwanted pass. This story is full of real life situations (other than the wolf kind), kick butt times and spicy interludes. I loved it!

Zeke, Chloe's brother and Alpha gets a phone call telling him about Val. When he meets Val, he doesn't quite know what to do about her. A human woman took down one of his wolves and is also his sister's best friend. His wolf is very interested in her and is talking about mates but Zeke has not had good relationships with humans. Can Val truly be his mate? What would happen if the Alpha mate was only human and would the mating bite change her or kill her? I really enjoyed Val as the heroine. She was powerful, strong and funny. She had Zeke spinning in circles. I voluntarily received a copy of this book and this is my honest review.

    Chloe's best friend Val, a.k.a. Valerie comes to town looking for her bestie. She hasn't heard from Chloe in awhile and came to check on her. Well that's the unofficial reason. The official reason is that Val is in the Army and has PTSD. She's been put on leave to deal with her anger. But if you know Val, you know she's never admit to all that.

And now Chloe's departure from the pack. He doesn't need to complicate his life any further than with a brash, headstrong, stubborn, Human mate. Well fate, she be a b***h. In the previous book, Zeke wasnt a very likeable character but in this book we get to know and explore him more. I liked Val's personality and spunk. She stood up for herself and showed no weakness. I received an advanced reader copy of this book and am leaving a voluntary review.

Hero, Zeke Soren, is a natural born alpha werewolf and leader of a pack; however, despite all the packs efforts to deter the humans, the humans continue to infringed on the pack’s territory. Valerie Logan, the heroine, is a human and ex military friend of Zeke’s sister and Valerie is in need of some R&R and has decided to infringe on her best friend by not annoying that she’s coming for a visit. Once Valerie arrives and discoveries that her friend is MIA, Valerie is forced to interact with Zeke and despite their comedic folksy banter, there is no romantic chemistry between this pair. The author presses on and decides to mirror the action taken by Twilight by turning Valerie into a werewolf in the same manner that Edward turned Bella into a vampire. To ad insult to injury, Zeke demoted or diminished many in his ruling hierarchy with the nephrotic act of replacing them with his transitioned mate, Valerie. I didn’t like this story...may I needed to have read other stories in this series.

Zeke on the other hand, finds himself very attracted to Val, but Val is a human, she couldn’t be his fated mate could she? Val is tough, as in forged in fire. And she makes for a great heroine. Zeke on the other hand, comes across as rather immature, which meant I had a little problem shipping the two of them together- I felt Val deserved a much tougher mate! Happily, Zeke starts to gain maturity by the end of the book, and redeems himself somewhat, though it might just be the love of a good woman that did it 😁 There is a slight cliffhanger with the background story, which will continue in subsequent books. This is a sexy PNR, and the fourth book in the series, beginning the Soren pack arc. Recommended for PNR fans and those who have read the other 3.5 books in the series.

    Valerie is having a bit of an issue with her anger management. She was up in Tremble to see her college friend Chloe. She didn’t expect her brother. Zeke is the alpha of Soren Pack and was not looking for a mate. She just happened to walk right into his town. There is NO WAY a human is his mate. But his wolf believes it. I love that in the beginning Val messes with Zeke about not knowing. Chloe had told her and as a good friend should, she kept the information a secret.

Zeke learned the hard way how it is with Val and also what the cause of all that is hurting her is. It really didn’t help that he kept thinking that the “human” were an issue. Thank goodness he finally came to his senses. These two were fates just like our couple from “Real Men Howl.” I laughed when I read the kind of books Val reads. The description of the Ice Planet Barbarians was the best. And Im glad that we are venturing into a new pack. The Soren Pack needed to be told. I like Zeke and he is a wonderful alpha. Thank goodness he realized that the old ways are not the best. On to the next in the series.

    Valerie is one bad a** Army Captain. The book begins with her going into a dive bar and laying a big guy out flat on his back when he touches her without permission. Although she does have a softer side and vulnerabilities, she is a strong female throughout the book. She came to town to track down her best friend, Chloe. Zeke is the Alpha of his wolf pack and Chloe's brother and goes to the jail because Valerie refused to talk to the police officer until she can find out something about Chloe.

There were parts of this book that will have you laughing, parts that will have you frustrated, and parts that will make you smile. As much as I loved Val and Zeke, I absolutely adored Fang. She was a force of her own. The book has a bit of heat. a bit of evil and a great ending. I have other books in this series and although I haven't read them yet, I want to go back and do so now. I also hope there will be a book where Warren finds his mate.

    Saw another reader rate book #3 in this series only 2 stars because they claimed all 4 books had the same storyline. Rinse, repeat with diff people and different circumstances. To that I say hello? If you find something that works, work it, baby! Regardless of the recipe, it still takes a good cook (author) to make it really delish. Great world building, plenty of humor and the characters had ample depth, quite likeable. The family and greater family members made a continued storyline better, mo Saw another reader rate book #3 in this series only 2 stars because they claimed all 4 books had the same storyline.

The family and greater family members made a continued storyline better, more believable and of course easily extends the series. As such things tend to do. Was it my all-time favorite series? No, it did make my favorites list though (I only fav books I'd read again). Each book has a feel-good, happy ending with some action, a nasty villain, humor, angst and steamy sex on the way. What else could a Paranormal Romance reader want? Yes, I recommend this series and really any Celia Kyle has written. She's definitely an author to follow for some sure bet good reads. #4, Real Men Bite, was my fav of this series.

    Let's face it, Zeke had a bit of a mountain to climb after his total douchecanoe-esque behaviour from the previous book. He was less Alpha and more like a spoiled child! Now we get to see the real Zeke. The one who struggled to hold his pack together, look after his mother and sister and generally try to undo the rift his father caused between them all. Valeria is awesome. She is fearless and when she thinks something dodgy has happened to her friend - oh good gravy the world will burn till she f Let's face it, Zeke had a bit of a mountain to climb after his total douchecanoe-esque behaviour from the previous book.

She is fearless and when she thinks something dodgy has happened to her friend - oh good gravy the world will burn till she finds her! Chloe seems to have fallen off the planet and now some dipstick brother is trying to get her to calm down like a good little human. Except she is not supposed to know about weres but Chloe caved in a moment of loneliness. How can she find Chloe, survive Zeke being all...well Zeke and make it out of town alive???? Val lusts after Zeke but she if not about to just drop at his feet, she can have some fun at the big lugs expense - he shouldn't have treated her friend so shoddily. Lots of humour and silliness to enhance the hot as heck passion!

    I really enjoyed this book. Admittedly it didn't go how I thought. A lot of the book Zeke and Val didn't really connect as a couple. Their start is a little different than I'm used to. I didn't hate it though. I loved Val. Her alpha personality and not TSTL. She's a military woman but she's a girl too. Kinda perfectly rounded but has her share of issues. It was hard to like Zeke sometimes with his "I hate/dislike humans and no way can my mate be human" deal. I think I needed a little more from h I really enjoyed this book.

It came together in the end but things aren't resolved with the land thing. So I'm guessing more stories are coming. I think I really missed the mate connection in this book. I wanted more Zeke and Val. I didnt feel it as much with the other characters. I think that was a little off putting a a smidge disappointing. Still it was really hilarious in the beginning when Val was treating his wolf like a dog.... priceless. Great story!

    Valerie is Chloe best friend. Chloe is a werewolf and Valerie is human, so it is against the rules for Valerie to know about it, but they have no secrets from each other.

Valerie does not know Zeke has recognized her as his fated mate and it is entertaining to see how they both try to fight their attraction, because if Zeke is wrong and bites Valerie it could be fatal. Love this Series. Thank you to Celia Kyle and Marina Maddix for the wonderful review copy. I also bought a copy for my library. Highly recommend this series.

Although tall, dark and anxious, Zeke has not been impressed with humans til Val came to town. She's a tough soldier, suffering PTSD and trying to reevaluate her life. There's so much going on in this book it's fun, sexy and crazy times. Not everything is resolved in this book, but that just makes me look forward to the rest of this series.

    I really enjoyed this story!! The characters were fantastic and I loved their strong personalities. I loved how Val could hold her own with anyone and could kick their butts physically and verbally. This story was well written and pulled me in from beginning to end. We get to see Zeke have to deal with the fact that his mate is human and doesn't back down. I loved the way that they interacted with each other. I'm super excited to get to see more from this Soren pack. There are definitely a few p I really enjoyed this story!! The characters were fantastic and I loved their strong personalities.

I'm super excited to get to see more from this Soren pack. There are definitely a few people that I can't wait to get their stories and it will help tie up the big issue with the woods from this book. The sex is explicit, lot more foreplay but all explicit and fun. There was a little bit of action in this one, but most of it is more verbal. This story was fun to read and I'm super excited for the next. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    3.5⭐ I read this book for the humor. It was recommended and posted about in a group I'm in because the FMC knows that the MMC is a werewolf and totally messes with him treating him like a dog and trying to get him to eat kibble. That portion of the book is absolutely hilarious. I laughed more often than not for the first half of the book. The spicy scenes want engaging as a reader I guess. They didn't keep my attention and I tended to skim a little bit. The overall plot of this romance is great. I 3.5⭐ I read this book for the humor.

That being said I know the series is a series of standalones and I guess I was a little unhappy with the unanswered questions at the end of it. There were just things that weren't tied up when it finished that would require me to read another stand alone I understand.

    I love all of the growly, sexy Alpha shifters created by Celia Kyle and Marina Maddix. Zeke is no different. Yum. This book was a seamless transition from the Blackwood Pack to the Soren Pack. Even more hot wolf stories. Val was an awesome heroine. She kicked ass. When she laid flat a huge werewolf and her being human ,,, awesome! I loved it. These stories are fast-paced, action-packed, romantic and funny.

I love when humour is an integral part of the storytelling and these authors do it well, every time. But I must say, much as I loved the story and characters, my favourite thing in Real Men Bite, was Fang. So frickin’ adorable. When her little head popped out of Val’s purse my heart melted. So cute!!
