Does he have his claws in her for good? Or is she just yanking his tail?

Elena Demos’s life has been turned upside down. Her mother has passed away, leaving Elena and her two half-sisters to deal with their mother’s will and the crazy stipulations it contains. For the three sisters to inherit the substantial amount of money left behind, they have to go to work with two aunts they’ve never met, in the family business they’ve known nothing about, Amazons Inc. If that isn’t bad enough, she runs into the man who once broke her heart, and it’s only their first day on the job.

Gage Ivanov is a stupid beast. He let the woman who should be his mate go because she couldn't be told of his Other identity. Now, Elena’s back, but she refuses to give in to his demands for her to be his mate. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse, either, because Gage and his circle of friends are trying to subdue a rogue pack of wolf shifters in Germany who threaten to out the Others to the world of humans. Will he be able to juggle the oncoming conflict and win back his mate?

Claws, love bites and handcuffs - OH MY!


“Hey Elena.”

Shooting Chloe an irritated glance for stopping her soon to be almost as great as Sherlock Holmes moment, Elena snapped. “WHAT?”
Chloe’s mouth spread into an evil grin right before she said, “There’s a giant spider on the wall behind you.”

Elena spun around and immediately spotted a real spider and her body shuddered in disgust. The bastard was huge and she swore he was staring right at her with all of those creepy googly eyes of his from where he sat high up on the wall. With the lightning fast speed of a ninja, Elena shrieked a war cry and flung herself at the wall with her hammer aimed above her head at the spider’s location.

Hitting the wall fast and hard, her hammer buried itself deep in the sheetrock with Elena’s lean body was left hanging from it, her feet about an inch off the floor. She tried to pull her hammer out of the dusty rubble to see if she’d squashed the disgusting bug, but her hammer was stuck. With an annoyed grunt she let go, turned to her sisters and barked out, “Did I kill it?”
Chloe smiled at Lulu. “Told you she was a freak.”

Crystal and Melissa often live half their lives with their heads in the clouds dreaming of alpha military hunks, werewolves and kick ass heroines crazy enough to chase after creatures that they unquestionably should know better than to chase.
Their first YA novel, The Burning Star, was released in May 2012. Big Bad Bite is their second novel, but their first adult paranormal romance. They are now working on their next two novels, Walk On The Striped Side and Secret Maneuvers. With these projects underway, they are looking forward to showing the rest of the world their crazy stories, heroes and heroines that often plague their minds until written, and hope you will join them on their journey!

      My Thoughts:

      Oh my gosh! I liked the first book Big Bad Bite so it was no surprise that I really liked this one as well.

      First of all, you have shifters, hot Alpha males, a snarky, sassy, kick a** heroine, more laughs than any book has a right to give, awesome chemistry and banter between the characters, lots of steamy sexiness, some suspense, romance, and lots of action (both kinds!).

      There is a good bit of necessary character development and back story. This book could stand alone fairly well but I would recommend reading the books in order. Don't miss a moment. Really!

      Some of the characters are zany to say the least. If you've read BBB than you know who takes the prize. If you haven't, you are truly missing out! Gage is the typical Alpha male with a good sense of humor thrown in. Elena is smart, sassy and just right for Gage. ;-) Even if the two of them don't always realize that.

      These two had awesome chemistry. If I was a feline, I'd have been purring. Oh baby if only Gage gave lessons! ;-)

      There is something for everyone in this book. Well maybe not everyone ~ those with very bad taste, people who don't like books or shifters, and people who are extremely prudish or don't like to laugh will most definitely NOT like this book. If you don't fit in that category (and I really hope you don't) than you should purchase it post haste! Don't put it at the bottom of your tbr lists, put it near the top if you don't purchase it today. :-)
       I declare this book to be even better than Big Bad Bite. I love, love love it and I can't wait to read more about the wonderful, kooky, charismatic characters that Crystal and Melissa (aka Jessie Lane) concoct. This series seems to be on a non stop one way track to fantasticville! 

      I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was Terrrrrrrrrific! Grrrrrrreat! Dang near Purrrrrfect! I really liked it. Really!

      Don't forget to enter the Comment Incentive Giveaway. It is a great chance to win a book you'd like to have! The link can be found at the top of the page.


      1. ^^ We recently spoke about well written shifters books and you introduce us to this one perfect timing^^ fate or destiny decided to help amber and me it seems ( though i guess amber already knows this series and i'm the one behind once again^^)

        you enthousiasm is really the only thing that makes me put a book on my wishlist without checking the summary several time^^ and you are so passionated about this series^^ i want to discover it ( thankfully book 1 is on TBD not the others from them but ^^ that's the one i should start with^^)
        you tell me this book is better than book 1 but you recommend us to read them in order, no? they work as stand alone too?

        ^^ i can resist shifters ( demons, vampire are great but shifters is my first love) add a touch of military ^^ and hum even better^^ . i'm so glad there is also one international giveaway ^^ i'm sure we will be a lot to try to win but at least that's one opportunity (perhaps teh only one as long as it's not sell on TBD) to get the walk on the striped side so... finger crossed!!!

        i want to see hot alpha, great heroine and laugh too^^

        thank you for this fabulous discovery brenda

        1. Yes Miki, you could read them out of order.

          I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. X Good luck!

      2. Thanks for hosting, so glad you enjoyed WALK ON THE STRIPED SIDE!

      3. Walk on the Striped Side sounds great! I am intrigued by Elena and her two half-sisters having to work in the "family business" with two aunts they have never met. Shifters, vampires, or demons? I enjoy reading about them all.

      4. I have the first I just need to read it. I'll be moving it up on my pile! :)

        1. Oh and I love them all but shifters are my favs! :)

        2. ^^ i knew you should know this series^^ i hope you will enjoy book 1 when you finally read it ^^
          you must tell me if you laughed as much as brenda^^
