Geek Bearing Gifts by Milly Taiden
Goodreads Rating: 5 stars
Audible Rating: 5 stars
Out of the entire series, thus far, Geek Bearing Gifts is my favorite. I am officially in love with WereBears. I already loved them because of Ramsey (Jessica Sim’s Midnight Liaisons series), but Ky….mmmm :). One thing that I did not like was that Nita did not figure out that the man she was set up with by Gerry was the same Ky she knew growing up. I am not sure how she did not connect that the werebear she knew growing up, Kyle, who lived in the same area she was heading to meet the man named Ky for a weekend date, MIGHT have been the same person. I was also aggravated that Ky went the whole time NOT telling her who he was!!! That would have pissed me off as much as it did Nita also!! This book is full of hot sex and sweet romance that makes you fall in love with a super sweet man. It is based on a past life between two people that meet again when they are adults and one does not realize while the other does. Ky knows that it is Nita because Nita is his mate, but Nita does not realize it is Ky as she is human.
One of my favorite parts about the book is the epilogue, in which Gerry reads a letter or has an interaction that sets up for the next book!
Short and sweet review, for a short and sweet book.
Twice the Growl by Milly Taiden
Goodreads Rating: 4 stars
Audible/Narrator Rating: 4 stars (Lauren Sweet)
I have noticed that my Audible wishlist is PAGES long, primarily due to my mom continuously adding books after books after books she finds and adds. This particular book, Twice the Growl, was discovered in this list and I thought it sounded like a good quick listen. It did not disappoint.
First off, Gerry is very entertaining, and if I wasn’t a happily involved young lady, I would happily have her set me up with one of her hot hunks ;). These books are very short and very sweet, yet a lot of story is packed between the sheets…pun intended.
I will admit, I do not always read or listen to, books that include multiple partners, which is weird, because I have read every single Anita Blake Vampire Hunter book, but this was a very specific book in which I have not been exposed to. In this particular story, Gerry needed to set up a wolf “pair” with a female to complete their alpha triad. In order to complete the triad, each wolf/man would need to be in agreement with the woman. Their wolf had to accept the woman as the third as much as the man does, if the wolf does not accept the mate, then the triad is not complete.
One issue about this book, due to it being a shorter book, falling in love tends to happen quickly. Everything happens instantaneously. However, the admitting it openly to each other happens at a slower, more realistic, pace.
