      *3.5 stars* This story is FULL of romance cliches. Evil bitch ex-girlfriend? Check! Insta-love? Check!"Mine" growly mate? Check!But do you know what the difference is between this book and all of the other shifter books out there? This story KNOWS it's being cliche. In fact, it outright mocks itself.Killian is a lowly editor for a romance book publisher, and he is sick of werewolves. He keeps reading the same tired plots over and over again. To make matters worse, he is half werewolf himself, co [...]

      3.5The only thing missing in this stereotyped, cliche-ridden, "tongue-in-cheek" story was the knotting or a male pregnancy. I even tolerated the amount of pet peeves present, including using "baby" as an endearment, since the author purposely wrote the story like that. I had fun with it, and now I have to wait to the next one where our evil twin will make his debut, I imagine.

    3. Serena Yates on said:

      You want the short version of what this book is like? Absolutely hilarious would be my summary. It contains every single cliché ever used in a werewolf story—and probably invented a few new ones while I wasn’t looking, or rather, unable to look because I was too busy laughing my head off or wiping tears of hilarity from my eyes. From the blurb to the clearly overly cheesy fluffy-romance like cover, this novel is the perfect werewolf story parody. And this is only the first volume in a serie [...]

      It's Dallas (werewolf style)! I enjoyed every OTT moment of this cliche riddled story. This book had, almost, everything. It was only missing mpreg and knotting. I was in need of some mindless fluff, and I got it with this book.

    5. Teresa on said:

      ****Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance****4.5 Stars All’s Fair in Mate Bonds and Publishing is a departure from the author’s previous fantasy works, but I must say I was hooked from the first paragraph of the prologue: I HATE vampires. The oh-woe-is-me-I’m-immortal thing is seriously getting old. For some reason, the greatest tragedy in the world is living forever and having to drink blood to achieve it. I see them every day—when they remember to use anti-UV cream—but mostly, at night, w [...]

      3.5 stars! The ending felt a bit rushed to me. Still, the writing is good and I really enjoyed this. I wouldn't mind reading more in this series.

    7. Susan Laine on said:

      3.75 stars. After reading the blurb, I immediately wanted to read this. I expected that because the author professed to knowing the clichés of paranormal romance she would deliver a funny tale with plenty of surprises. But… and isn’t there always a but? But… this story does point out a bunch of these clichés, yes, but it sure doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel, just added a couple of new spinners on for show.In short, the plot points out all the typical stuff through Killian who hates t [...]

      Full of cliches but I couldn't stop reading it. Better than other books that I've read for sure.

    9. Daniela Green on said:

      This book starts very good, the first half of it is very funny and smart. And then it losts its way and becomes boring. What a pity.

    10. Beth doesn't writeenough reviews on said:

      So much freaking fun!!Adorable, cliche ridden, sexy and so freaking sweet! Filled with elaborate metaphors, awful prose I couldn't help but thoroughly enjoyed the entire story.Very tongue in cheek the author threw in just about everything found in the shifter genre. Really, except for knot tying, male pregnancy and the Alpha secretly craving bottoming it's all here. You may roll your eyes and think 'nothing new here' but you would be so wrong. The author (new to me) did an amazing job of not onl [...]

    11. Christine on said:

      I liked this one. I was hooked from the start. Killian was funny, quirky and just someone everyone should have in their lives. Brett is your typically alpha male but with a softer side. Sparks fly when they meet. It's an all around kinda funny and kinda sweet story.

    12. Lizzie on said:

      It was a funny, self-deprecating look at the erotic romance genre and yet still managed to tell a sweet fluffy story. I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be checking out other stories from this author.

      3.25 starsAt about 79%, the book lost its momentum and never recovered.

    14. Ng on said:

      The start was great- a half werewolf who is a editor and deals with vampire and werewolf romance novels. He has a running commentary on the cliched mate bonds and so on. The other MC is Brett, an alpha werewolf, soon to be mated to a prospective author. Her book is rejected by Killian and she sends Brett with a false story. One look or one whiff- Brett recognizes that Killian is his mate. But what to do, Killian is half human and he is engaged. I thought it started out good- but hit the first sn [...]

      This really wasn't very good. There is much better paranormal m/m romance out there. Sorry.

    16. Katherine on said:

      Ok. I liked the concept, and there was certainly lots of external conflict. But it didn’t all gel, and felt clunky at times. Bought from Dreamspinner

    17. Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* on said:

      Reviewed at The Blogger Girls.Killian may be a half-werewolf/half-human but that doesn’t mean he enjoys the fairytale shifter story even if he is an editor at a publishing house who gets a ton of shifter stories. Still, he doesn’t believe in the whole ‘mates’ thing… that is until Brett Wolfe shows up looking for answers but ends up finding his mate instead. Before they know it, Brett’s persistance causes Killian to give him a chance even if he doesn’t believe there’s anything but [...]

      4.5 star review by AmberI would be quite remiss if I didn’t admit to initially picking up this book because of the title. I just love this title. It’s cute, funny, and very clever. And the same can be said about this book. I truly enjoyed it. Alana Ankh is a new author to me but I am exceedingly happy that I read this story.Killian is the quintessential bitter, snarky “hybrid” or half-breed wolf shifter. He shuns the paranormal world. Stays far away from it and prefers all preternatural [...]

      4.5 stars.Brett was more likable than he sounded from the blurb--I liked him even from the first scene that he appeared in. He doesn't seem like a jerk at all. As for Killian, I didn't like him very much at the beginning, because he was, in my opinion, quite whiny and cynical. But I grew to like him later, and he's a pretty interesting, sometimes even fascinating, person; he was never boring. Brett was less interesting to me, but he was also not a boring character. About Killian again, I own tha [...]

    21. GayListBookReviews on said:

      C+ A fun and sweet read about werewolves, neurotic authors, editors, and crazy pack dynamics.Killian has a bit of a chip on his shoulder about werewolves and most especially alphas. His own status as a half-werewolf has left him on the outside of the shifter world. Most of his interactions have been negative and he doesn’t have any interest in getting involved with a bossy alpha when Brett storms into his life. But not even his jaded heart can resist the combination of the mate bond and Brett [...]

    22. Shivani ~*My blurry eyesight wants more books*~ on said:

      2 stars for the effortAlana wrote a nice story. But it was rushed. The scenes passed by in a very fast speed. There wasn't enough dwelling time While i liked the fact that there was less confusion and misunderstandings were clarified before they could have even begun but there is a fine line between rushed and fast. Sometimes in the scene everything goes so fast that you get momentarily stuck with the words "What just happened" playing in your mind. And then there is rushed, where the scene that [...]

      Review can be read at It's About The Book2.5 starsKillian Marsden is an editor of romance novels. Brett Wolfe is sent by his evil fiancée to force the publication of her book and stop the publication of a book that was clearly plagiarized from her book. Or that’s what she told Brett. Lo and behold, it turns out Brett and Killian are mates. Killian is only half werewolf and rather disdainful of werewolf culture. Brett is about to enter into an important political marriage and was having no pla [...]

      This book sounded like a fun and unique premise and I snatched it right up. Read it last night.And was sorely disappointed.Killian is disgusted by the pedantic prose he reads on a daily basis as an editor at a small publishing house. His biggest annoyance is shifter romances as they are just not true to life - and he should know, he's part shifter.From the buildup, I assumed the author would have fun with it - which they did - but they ended up dumping Killian in an annoying story. I liked his a [...]
