Conner’s Wolf (Supernatural Bonds, Book Six) by Jory Strong

connor's wolf

Homicide detective Conner Stern doesn’t know what Khemirra Reis is running from, only that he’s damn determined to find out. Right after he lays her bare beneath him and works the beautiful obsession out of his system.

Sexual satisfaction first, revealing her secrets second-that’s the plan-except Khemirra is battling a fascination of her own. Her rational mind says stay far, far away from the gorgeous cop who doesn’t want anything to do with the supernatural. But after Conner catches up to her and shows her with heated kisses and carnal demands just how perfect they can be together, the wolf part of her nature is convinced he’s the right mate.

Conner wants her trust. She needs his help. But Khemirra doesn’t know which of her secrets Conner will hate more-that she killed a man, or that she’s a werewolf. Unless love overrides all else, they’ll lose any chance of a future together.

Khemirra Reis is on the run. An eccentric rich man has discovered that she is a werewolf and he has plans to capture her. She is also being chased by Conner Stern – police officer and her most recent lover. When Conner finally catches up to Khemirra, the sparks fly.

I enjoyed this book for what it is: a quick, cute, and sexy novella. Since this is a novella and not a full length book, the characters and the plot are not as well fleshed out as in previous books in the Supernatural Bonds series. Conner’s Wolf is well written but the book – when compared to the others in the series – has a distinct unfinished quality about it.

Satisfaction Guaranteed by Tuesday Morrigan

satisfaction guaranteed

During their high school reunion’s after-party, Sela Newton agreed to play Seven Minutes in Heaven with Rome Vicenza. She knew it was a mistake, but she wanted him then just like she wants him now. Ten years have passed and Rome still has the ability to make Sela’s heart and body flutter with one heated look. Then he offers her one night, satisfaction guaranteed: he owns her body, and she’ll have the best sex of her life. It’s as much of a mistake as it was ten years ago, she knows it must be, so why can’t she say no? And when it’s over, will the one night be enough to purge him from her system, or will she go back again for more?

Spoilers ahoy! I can’t get the coding to work correctly today…so there shall be spoilers!

Wow. I’m not sure what to think or how to rate this.

The writing starts off decent and proceeds to pretty good. The plot starts pretty good, I love rekindled romances. The problem to me seems to be the relationship itself. At first the story starts as lovers reunited and it was pretty good. As the story unfolds the reader learns that the reason why the two stopped seeing each other was due to a teenage pregnancy. Sela has a miscarriage and Rome never shows up. Rome is told by Sela’s father and his own that Sela had an abortion. Somehow they never really speak about this situation again. Really? Just like that? Fast forward 10 years and they still have the hots for each other? I’m sure.
