Accidentally Wolf and His Perfect Wolf by Elle Boon

Accidentally Wolf and His Perfect Wolf by Elle Boon

**First I need to apologize to Elle Boon and all of you watchers and readers. I continually call the second book His Perfect Mate when in fact the name of the book is His Perfect Wolf.**

Accidentally Wolf (Mystic Wolves #1): Cora is a veterinarian who is on a run when she sees this helpless wolf cub caught in a trap. She frees him, carries him back to her clinic, and while she’s fixing him up he bites her. Shortly after she starts to feel ill. She leaves the clinic and goes to her apartment next door to take a shower, hears a commotion, runs back to her clinic in nothing but a towel, and there stands the most sexiest man she’s ever seen holding the wolf that she’s rescued and all she can think to do is climb him, lick him, bite him, and rut against him like an animal.

From here things only get better…..

His Perfect Wolf….

Niall is the alpha of the Mystic Wolves. He was mated once before to the mother of his son Nolan. (Nolan is the cub wolf who bit Cora) Emma, Niall’s mate, was it for him. He knows he must find a mother figure for Nolan, but this person will never get his heart.

Then he smells something sweet and perfect out in the woods. When he finds the broken body of a female at the bottom of a cliff he has to save her. Something compels him to do everything to get her to safety. The same warnings his gave his brother Zayne when it came to Cora he tries to remind himself but they quickly go out the window.

Alaina remembers nothing about herself after she’s rescued by Niall only that she knows she’s not fully human and he’s not either, but she keeps this information to herself.

Alaina’s past shows up to taunt her, Niall must face his past and decide his future, and Nolan falls in love.

M4M by Rick R. Reed

M4M by Rick R. Reed

M4M is a story that follows Ethan Schwartz through three major events of his life: finding love, losing life as he knows it, finding happiness again.

In section one Rick reminds us of the tortures of online dating. The social stigma to be perfect when the whole reason you’re on the dating site is because you know you’re not.

Section two we witness Ethan breakdown after his life is completely altered by a simple phrase spoken by his doctor. He feels betrayed, bitter, angry, and more alone than ever. We get to see him rise from the ashes and find his balance again.

In section two our hearts are ripped out by the raw pain that Ethan is going through. His grieve leaks from the pages of the story and into our hearts. It takes a blast from his past to really motivate him to accept happiness again.
