Enforcing boundaries

Absolutely brilliant book and a completely different take on the shifter genre.I thought the characters were well thought out,the plotline flowed faultlessly and the story was fully completed with no loose ends.
Very few grammar areas and the first person writing style really worked well for this particular story.Top credit to the Author,it was a great book to read.

I'm here to fix you

Wow,this was a really REALLY long book.I love how the author wrote the story from a mainly male perspective,it was refreshing and different.This book made me cry in parts which speaks of the writer's incredible talent.There were a few things that I would improve on,firstly there were a lot of typos and misused words that got annoying, and there were a few too many characters that made it confusing to walk in everyone's shoes.All the shared dreaming etc was totally unrealistic,given that the book was a supposed autobiography.The twist at the end was really good and I enjoyed the emotional roller coaster but it was drama after drama after drama,which again messed with the overall feeling that the author was trying to create for the readers.Lastly the book is just far too long.It's quite daunting to see 1000+ pages and the journey through it all is quite arduous.

It was quite a straight forward book which is nice to read,no convoluted plots or twists,everything was predictable and a pleasant story to pass the time.I enjoyed a strong leading character,even if it was a bit unrealistic sometimes,and I think the Author would do well to think of a few plot twists within the main plot and have sub character point of views to give the story more depth.Well done.

Quin and the crystal adventures

I have eight children and thought what better way to review a children's book,than to read it to them and see what they thought. The children in the same age group that the author is targeting said that they enjoyed the figurative interpretations throughout the story and the plot line was solid but they got bored with the micro explanations in the descriptive context. I enjoyed the great technical writing skills that the writer employed, it was lovely to come across something that had been carefully proof read, thanks.

Dueling Shadows

Sometimes you need to take yourself out of the emotional situation and read your own words objectively.I think this book had potential, but some of the descriptions over explained the same emotion or didn't deliver on where the journey alluded it was going. Make sure if you use a description, then it is factual otherwise it detracts from the story you are trying to tell. Keep improving and don't ever stop writing because a review is only one persons opinion,good luck.

Wolf's wife (monstrous hearts book 1)

Wow,I haven't been that wrapped up in a book in ages,it was absolutely flawless.The plot was unique and interesting the whole way through.All main characters had their own parts to play and the back story was very clear.Descriptive and emotive writing was excellent.This author has some serious skills.

Instinct

Absolutely loved this book.It was filled with spelling mistakes and grammatical errors so it definitely needs a good edit,but the plot was very well thought out and multi faceted,the characters were believable,relatable and behaved according to their ages,which is a welcome relief to be honest.I found the timeline to be really well done,and the descriptive and emotive writing skills are excellent.I would definitely read the next book in the series,well done.I also love the fact that the author didn't spam the end of each chapter with author's notes as this can be extremely annoying.

Just friends

I really enjoyed this book, there were a couple of things about the timeline of events that didn't marry up well, but otherwise the plot and characters were really fleshed out and developed.A few typo's and missing words here and there but nothing a good editor couldn't fix.My one disappointment was the ending.After spending so much time getting the reader to invest in the characters it was really anti climactic to get them back together,tell their parents,graduate college and go through major life events in one chapter.My suggestion would be to add four more chapters to the book to work through the scenes in real time so your readers could enjoy the full experience of their relationship.

Blood and chocolate

This story is written from a very young point of view, with simple vocabulary and repeated words,which tend to make the plot stale.I found it quite difficult to carry on reading past the second chapter as I really felt as though I was reading a high school kids novel,my personal view is that the shifter genre is probably not a strong point for this persons writing and they would more likely find their niche in teen reads.

Leila is one of my favourite authors,so I had high expectations when I started reading this book.Unfortunately it was nothing like the rest of her work and in some parts I honestly wondered if she was writing this book at all.Is this one of her earlier works?A lot of grammar issues and the book remained stagnant the whole way through.No real emotion throughout,and a lot of repeated phrases that would benefit from a thesaurus.If you are looking for a fluff piece to read though to combat boredom then this book is fine for that.

The culling

This story had promise,but the different pov within a few paragraphs quickly became confusing,and the typos were all over the place.The story needed to be longer in order to make the timeline more believable,and the mix ups between 'were' and 'was' got quite annoying.Descriptive and emotive text needs work,but the basic story line was sweet.I think the author needs to read more stories in the genre that they have chosen to write in as there are a few 'rules' with regards to werewolves that weren't followed,which an avid reader of shifter books would find displeasing.Please keep writing,as a review is only one persons opinion and shouldn't sway you in what you love to do.

Liam

I feel like this book should really be a part of a series as I have noticed the characters are referenced in the author's other books.For me,this book seems very rushed and unfinished,so I was surprised to see that it is marked as complete as it doesn't really go anywhere.There are no major scenes, or plot twists to speak of and it was a bit all over the place.I felt disappointed, since Liam was the character I enjoyed the most in Cain,I jumped at the chance to read his story,only to find nothing of substance.Please consider rewriting this book as it really brings the rest of your books down and you are an excellent writer.

Scandalous

I really enjoyed this book, the authors descriptive text is amazing and the story itself is not at all cliche.I would recommend a second editing as there are typos and missed words,but the book is that interesting that the minor details don't really matter.If I was being super critical I would suggest that the author try to refrain from using the same phrases multiple times during the story,but again this is only a minor thing.From one author to another,well done I think you have a great future in erotica.

The plot was solid,right up until the end where everything got rushed.It is a pet peeve of mine when I read an entire book,and then get to the last two chapters only to have things tie up like a news story.I enjoyed the first book way better but it is still a well written book and of a higher calibre than most.

Fantasy x

I usually follow this writer because of how brilliant her creativity is,however this time I was really disappointed. The ending was abrupt and there were parts in the plot line that were so flawed I got thoroughly confused.The military plot line,and buying and selling of subs within this is completely unbelievable.There is very little character development and the introduction of characters is totally random.Also Zac saying that he is trapped in the mansion except when he is out kidnapping,doesn't fit with his nightclub scene with his brother or when he comes to the university,or even the handing over of the keys.I expected more.

Silenced

I read a lot of books.Particularly of the shifter genre and I love the way this book plays out.Having a main character that is unable to speak in a traditional sense takes real talent to keep a reader interested and the author does this effortlessly.The descriptive writing is of a high calibre,and while the emotional writing does need work,the plot line makes up for that,it is solid and consistent the whole way through.I really enjoyed the humorous portions that were scattered throughout this book,and would have enjoyed more character development just to get a clearer picture of who the main characters were outside of the main plot line.Grammar and punctuation could do with a tidy up, but overall, Silenced is an entertaining read,well done.

All I wanted was a mate.

I understand that the author wrote this book as she went,with no plot plan in place,and it shows.The painful thing is this could have been a great story and the writer has an excellent imagination.I found that despite at the end of every chapter,it was stated that editing was done,I continued to find numerous mistakes and words that simply did not fit in the context that they were placed in,almost as if a 'big' word was put into a sentence to make it seem more adult? Shifter genre is an extremely hard genre to stand out in and I wonder if this writer might like to try her hand at young adult romance instead. If she is sticking to this genre I would suggest she sit down and put together a plot plan with main and sub characters, as well as major and minor events that will happen and then write them down in chapter formation so she has something solid to work off.It would also pay to follow some well known shifter authors like CW Swallow or KL Lord to find out about transitions and werewolf boundaries etc,as the story broke quite a few of the accepted genre rules.Please keep writing and remember my review is only my opinion and there are obviously people who really love your work, keep it up!

Big bad Alphas

The beginning of the book was well thought out and gave a sense of mystery to the two main characters,but unfortunately it never evolved.The main plot was very cliche and the age of the female lead seemed very young,based on her lack of logic and immaturity.The blurb in the beginning is misleading and doesn't really have a lot to do with the actual story which was disappointing and there was no fire between the main characters.It had the bones of a good book initially,and then waffled on into a series of bizarre decisions that were random and had no real conclusion at the end.I finished the book because I wanted to make sure I reviewed with an open mind, and after reading from cover to cover,I felt like I was still trying to decipher some code to access the proper chapters to flesh out the book a bit more,perhaps with some tough editing these improvements will make all the difference.Keep writing.

Way of the wolf: Oria

This book cannot be read as a standalone book. At times I was thoroughly confused by the insertion of characters that clearly have a backstory in another novel,but I wasn't privy to it in this book. Aside from that, the plot line was good, a little tricky to negotiate with how exactly she came upon her power and it was never made clear what blood her father carried.I found the characters to be well thought out and some of the pack mannerisms were unique which I enjoyed as well. Grammar and punctuation need redoing,as well as missed words which affected the story as some of the missed words were in important parts.This author has a talent for pulling people into the story despite the other flaws and I believe that she has enormous potential as a writer.

Royal meets Rogue

I enjoyed this story but the plot was a little thin, there were many sub plots that weren't finished,with one main character disappearing entirely partway through.Quite a few typos and sentences that were out of place,but I really enjoyed the main females character development.I would recommend more research into weapons terms and language text that is age appropriate for the characters within her story.I enjoyed the romantic aspect of the lead characters,but feel there needed to be more depth to some of the sub characters especially to fill the story out more.

This is an exceptionally good sequel to The Gemlish girl. This author uses great descriptive text and the plot flows nicely,showing that there is an actual goal at the end instead of waffling on with the main characters ending up together.Aside from some minor missed words which is really easy to do and some spelling errors,the overall technical writing is some of the best I have seen on this app.I will definitely be reading it all the way to it's conclusion.Well done for a very entertaining and thought provoking novel.

Last chance

I thought the plot started well, and the story line progressed nicely.In the beginning the grammar and punctuation was pleasantly well edited,however as it came down to the final ten chapters it was almost as if the author just wanted to finish the book,and the plot line etc went crazy.Editing also went out the window.And instead of flowing, the story flopped in the end.I think the gifs at the end of each chapter got a bit much in the as well.If the author had taken her time and really thought about the plot,this could have been an amazing story.

His favoured Luna

I tried very hard to like this book,in fact I put it down when I got frustrated,and came back to it later many many times.The constant reporting of events in such a mundane way as he did she did he went she went they did they said started to distract me so much that I kept losing where I was up to,until finally I gave up.I would like to see the author use a thesaurus to change up the monotony of using the same words all the time, and try to give the characters more depth early on.A good book tricks the reader into identifying something within the main characters that they admire,or an event or feeling that they resonate with,so that they become emotionally invested in the book.I believe that the author needs to work more on this.

This will be the last in the Dom series that I will read.Disappointing to note that they are all the same with no real character growth,completely focused on BDSM,the authors second book was so well written I expected more of the same with this one but it never eventuated beyond the sexual sense.Technical writing skills are flawless,but the rest of it felt like regurgitated scenes from the first three books.Please remember that a review is only one person's opinion and stay true to who you are.

The Blood wolf

This book is not your stereotypical werewolf story and I love that, the author has a good grasp of emotive writing and his descriptive writing is also very good.There are some grammatical and spelling errors, with some of the words not fitting how the author was trying to use them but these are all small things.I would recommend a little less "talking to the reader" as this can sometimes appear juvenile, and it is something that annoys me when I read, as I like to get lost in the story. 42 chapters is a very long book,which will also put some people off reading,maybe think about turning it into a series?There are certainly enough developed characters to have a few books.Overall though it is a great story and I really think you have what it takes to succeed in this profession.

Brenden

I am really impressed by how much the author has grown in terms of his plot line and emotive writing skills, this book is vastly different from the first,and the BDSM was more realistic,although could still use some more research,especially on the body's capacity for how far something can be shoved before causing damage, as always the technical writing was flawless, just needs to work on other people's point of view within the story, well done.

Andrew

The authors technical writing skills are excellent,, I couldn't fault them,the writing style itself was very raw and graphic; not to everyone's tastes, however the warnings were clear in the blurb, so I was prepared. I found the plot to be quite choppy,and in need of filling out with other people's point of views,,and aside from BDSM there wasn't much else happening,which got boring.The transition from lust to love didn't flow very well,but that could be because of the male only pov. Perhaps a reclassification in genre from erotica to horror/erotica might be better in keeping with what the story was about,as the main characters Dom persona was abusive and torturous which isn't consistent with true BDSM, especially with comments like, 'shoulder deep' in someones rectum,that would kill someone in real time.Overall the author has put a lot of thought into their work,but with a little more research,the book could have been great.

The Alpha's breeder

This was a very different take on the usual werewolf novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it, I especially enjoyed the fact that the main characters didn't get split up through petty arguing or someone cheating on the other,and the plot had a lot of depth,it wasn't just an 'easy' read. I loved bringing the whole scientific aspect to it, and found that I stayed interested from beginning to end.The only criticism I have is that there were some typos and grammatical errors,nothing that can't be fixed with re editing.I am definitely looking forward to reading more of your work.

I found it quite hard to follow the flow of this book,and the time frame was all over the place,which was very confusing.Unfortunately,the practicalities of having so many guys in one night without a shower scene kinda grossed me out.And there doesn't seem to be a proper ending,too many loose ends,which is frustrating.The erotic descriptions are some of the better ones for this genre, but again,the typos and missed words kept distracting me,so perhaps another proofread would be beneficial.Please keep writing,and remember that a review is only one persons opinion and it looks like there were many others who thoroughly enjoyed what you have written.

Eyes wide open

Okay, sometimes it is possible to over describe things,or use words that are not quite in the right context,and instead of enhancing the story,it detracts from it. I have read all of the comments throughout the five chapters from other writers/readers and kept an open mind, but I have to be honest and say that sometimes a simple description is more powerful than the most convoluted one. I would go back and take note of how many times you use the same words, in example 'recluse' and see if you can find a way to exchange it for something else to vary the story.Please keep writing as you have a great vocabulary and remember,a review is only one persons opinion,so stay true to your authenticity.
