This wolf mates for life… 

Nina Reyes knows trouble when she sees it, and Lex Warden, Enforcer for the local werewolf pack, is nothing but. When her brother gets in too deep with some dangerous wolves and comes to Nina for help—dragging super alpha protector Lex into her life—she can handle it. She might have put her grifter past behind her, but she's still got what it takes. If only she didn't find Lex—his body, his scent, even his domineering nature—so intoxicating. 
As Enforcer, it's Lex's job to protect his people. Nina might be more capable of handling herself than he initially thought, but that doesn't mean she's safe from their enemies. His need to protect her is more than just pack business—Nina, a human, is his mate. Bedding her once is not even close to enough; to satisfy his wolf, he needs a true bond.  
The heat between them scares Nina, but sometimes the reward is worth the risk, and the thought of living without Lex terrifies her more than any threat the werewolf mafia can pose. Lex will do anything to keep her safe. And when the Rogues catch up to them, he'll get a chance to prove it…

I just love the first book in the Cascadia series and I can’t wait for the next one. Nina has spent the last five years staying off the radar but when Lex comes knocking at her door looking for her brother she is afraid her life is gonna change. Her brother Gabriel came to her a few days ago saying he needed money to hide and that he had seen something that will get him killed. Nina knows about the werewolves because one of them but her brother in a fight and changed him, so when Lex the pack enforcer comes looking for him she threatens him with a gun. What Nina doesn’t expect to feel lust for this guy so she does what she always does she used her sarcasm to fight her attraction.
When Lex sees the school teacher get up Nina is wearing he is not interested in anything but answers but his wolf is screaming mate. Lex doesn’t understand why that could be but when he gets a taste of how tough Nina is he is beginning to understand. Because she won’t give him answers he figured her brother will show up so he openly follows her for two weeks. When Nina gets the laptop from the locker and meets her brother things go down and she and Lex realize they are made for each other but Nina is giving in to Lex without a fight. I just loved Nina’s defense mechanism and her bravery and I admire Lex’s dedication to the pack and Cade the Alpha. If the rest of the stories are like this it’s going to be a fun series to read. – Reviewed by  Linda

Review: Puppy Love by Kelly MoranPuppy Love (Redwood Ridge #1) by Kelly Moran

After a passionless marriage under the scrutiny of high society, Avery Stowe is taking back her life. All she wants is a little privacy and a quiet place to raise her autistic daughter, Hailey. Redwood Ridge, Oregon, seems to offer all the right ingredients. Except for the problem of the local sexy veterinarian. The last thing she needs in her life is to fall for his irresistible allure, even if he is a nice guy who keeps doing her favors. But the well-meaning patrons of her new hometown have other ideas, and it appears playing Cupid is one of them.
Cade O’Grady has never met a woman he couldn't handle, but when Avery Stowe walks into his office late one night cradling an injured puppy, he’s struck stupid. Which might explain her total lack of interest in him. But now that she’s working for his family’s clinic, he doesn't have to lust from a distance. He might just have a chance at convincing Avery—and her too-guarded heart—that falling for the right man isn't a mistake . . .


This is the first book I’ve read by Kelly Moran and it won’t be the last! This is a great beginning of a new series and I look forward to reading more of these three hot Veterinarian brothers!

Avery is on her way to Redwood Ridge, Oregon to live in her mom’s town with her autistic daughter, Hailey. Her and her husband, Richard have divorced and Avery decided it was time for a fresh start and to find herself after being what he wanted her to be for 10 years. Exhausted from her trip, her mom and her fall asleep on the couch and she wakes up and feels cold air in the room. The door is open and Hailey is missing! Luckily, it snowed and she can see the direction that Hailey went. She find her and she’s covered in blood! Freaking out she checks Hailey over and realizes she’s cradling a hurt puppy. They rush the puppy to the vet.

Cade is one of three brothers that works at his family’s clinic. He’s the youngest, the most fun and the playboy who doesn’t want commitment! He’s had a horrible day and when someone is banging on his door late at night, he knows it isn’t going to get any better. He finds a woman, a little girl and an injured puppy. Of course, being a man, he assumes the worse about the puppy….a negligent owner. So he let’s her have it about being so irresponsible and she doesn’t say a word to dispute that.

Once Cade finds out the whole puppy thing was a huge misunderstanding, he goes to apologize to Avery. He doesn’t know a lot about kids, but he seems to have a soft spot for Hailey and Avery. He hits it off with both of them and attempts to shut those thoughts down….but can he? Can these two that have no interest in relationships have one?
This was such a sweet book! I fell in love with Cade even when he assumed the worse about Avery. It’s like him and her were kindred spirits from the beginning, but they both were fighting it! I gotta admit Hailey made me very uncomfortable and I kinda read through her parts faster, but, that’s just me. It was a great story, very well written! I look forward to reading more of this series and I’m guessing/hoping each hot Vet brother gets their own love story! Reviewed by Judy


Cade is considered the quintessential play boy. In his family of eligible hotness, he is the most sought after. The youngest most playful of the brothers and the most accessible. He doesn’t have to work for it and he doesn’t feed lines or play with emotions. He doesn’t do anything serious.

Until he meets a woman that can make him disgusted and turned on at the same time. Misreading the situation, Cade assumes the worst about Avery (hence the disgust) but can’t help to notice all the rest of her too.

Avery thinks the prickly vet, aka the Jerk, is just another example of men being men. Finally divorced from the tool she married, it’s clear her opinion of men could use some work but Avery has no intention of changing it. No men, no relationships, no love. Just no.

Well, somethings are easier said than done…
