Reviewing two stories from the set. 

Mandy M. Roth--Broken Communications Immortal Outcasts, Book 1--Part of the Immortal Ops World
Genetically altered into a super soldier who can shift into a wolf, Casey Black should have been the perfect asset—but that wasn’t to be. The scientists who conducted DNA splicing experiments on him put a little too much wolf in his cocktail. Considered a danger to society and a risk to the survival of the secret project, the government tried to eliminate him. The former Immortal Operative has spent the majority of his life on the run and off the grid from the very government who’d helped him be ‘all he could be’.When the sassy, headstrong woman who makes his body burn with need vanishes, he realizes it’s not his head, but rather his heart that is broken. And he’ll do whatever is called for to mend it.

Each story in this box set is a short read that can certainly work as standalone's or in edition to a series. I didn't have any clue about this world or author, but in no way felt lost. You get your bang for the buck, that's for sure!

Casey is all kinds of sexy alpha goodness, I would have liked him to be a bit more involved in the story plot and action sequences but that's ok. With each story having to wrap up fairly quickly, you really want the focus to be on the main pair, at least I do!

Well written, a good amount of drama, action and romance help level out the story. It gives the reader a good taste of the series overall and had me definitely taking an interest. A good series for those that enjoy government twisted plots and shifters of all kinds.

Michelle M. Pillow--Determined Prince--Captured by a Dragon-Shifter (Book 1)
Dragonshifter Prince Kyran has studied the Earth people and is ready to assimilate. Female shifters are all but going extinct on his planet of Qurilixen, and his people are desperate for mates—so much so they’re taking matters into their own hands. What better place to capture a woman than Earth? After all, dragonshifters had come from there centuries ago. Surely a human female would be honored to be selected by one as fine and fierce as himself?

While on Earth, Kyran stumbles upon the most beautiful woman he’s ever imagined, singing something the natives call rock ’n’ roll. His blood simmers and he knows Eve is the one for him. But taming this feisty female is going to take much more than his training prepared him for.

Another quick and fun read in this neat box set. This really is a great deal for your money! Dragonshifters with a unique twist, a rocker chick who's abducted, snarky moments and tons of romance make this story what it is. 

I wasn't a big fan of the caveman mentality of the Qurilixen men, they really do want to thump gals over the head and drag them back to their cave. It's sort of cute, but more overbearing then anything else. 

I did laugh out loud a lot during this read, for that alone I can look past any other complaints. Would I read other stories in this world? Probably not. BUT I did enjoy this fun tale.

  1. Did the dragon not see the errors of his ways? Just abducting her? Or did she just give in too quick instead of wanting to go back to her own life? Still it does sound like fun.
