Caribou’s Gift (Kodiak Point 3.5) By: Eve Langlais

Plot:

Damn it, a man had his pride and a caribou a certain majestic presence, all of which could wind up ruined if he abased himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town’s Christmas parade. No way was he wearing damned tinsel in his antlers. Like hell was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh. But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event. Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it for her little girl. If playing dirty is what it takes…then bring on the Christmas games. As Crystal and Kyle butt heads—and lips—they discover more than goodwill this holiday season. They’re gifted with a second chance at love.

Review:

This was such a cute, sweet story. It was just a novella so the story was fast paced and got right to the point. Kyle fell so fast and hard that I couldn’t help but love him. Crystal was a good single mom and she resisted because of past mistakes but she quickly realized that there was no need with Kyle.

I liked the pacing and that there wasn’t much heming and hawing they both fell quickly and didn’t fight it much.

Gigi was adorable.

There was also a nice little magical Christmas moment that brought the holiday cheer. Love this series.

Grizzly Love (Kodiak Point #5) By: Eve Langlais

Grizzly in Love

Grizzly Love (Kodiak Point #5) By: Eve Langlais

Plot:

Are you ready for a grizzly kind of love? His mother would have beaten him to within an inch of his life, if she knew Travis had the hots for the town doctor, but he couldn’t help it. Dr. Jess, a redhead with a few years on him, was his soulmate. His inner grizzly knew it. He knew it. Suspected she did as well. But he did have one dilemma standing in his way. Her husband. Talk about inconvenient. Good thing Travis was tenacious. Even if he has to travel half a continent, and brave some hot sands, subsist on crappy food and survive attempts on his life he won’t give up until he wins her heart. Or dies trying. Jess made a mistake. She married too young, to the wrong man. Problem is, hawks mate for life, and murder is against the law. To add more insult to the situation, her mate won’t even attempt to be a husband. It seems he isn’t interested in keeping his vows, nor is he coming home anytime soon, so when the chance arises to confront him, she takes it. However facing him changes nothing. Freddie doesn’t want her…but Travis does. And oh how she wants him too. Wants and yet can’t have him. However, her marital problems aren’t the only issue. Their pursuit of the nefarious being behind the attacks on their town is being sabotaged by treachery. When Jess and Travis barely survive an ambush, she can no longer deny her love for the rascally bear. But will they survive enough to see if it’s possible for her to rectify a wrong and take him as her mate?

Review:

I bought this book without even reading the plot synopsis, that’s how much I like this series. When I realized that it was about a married woman mated with another man I was immediately wary. There is pretty much only one scenario that I would find this mostly acceptable. Thankfully that’s the scenario I got.

I’m glad that Travis found someone, I’ve really enjoyed him throughout the other books. Unlike everyone else he has a sense of humor and isn’t nearly as damaged as the rest. I liked his attitude and the fact that he hid how smart he was, he wasn’t a genius or anything, but his sole interest wasn’t guns and killing people.

I admired Jess, she resisted Travis for years. Up until the moment she confronted her husband and realized he wasn’t the man she’d married anymore. He’d left her for way too long and even after that she didn’t cheat. She waited to speak to him. She did everything that I would find acceptable to do in the situation.

Having a cheating spouse is a hard story to pull off. If things aren’t done exactly right you’re going to piss people off and it won’t be the happily ever after that we all know and love. Langalis pulled it off with this book and it was a great end to the series. Though I wouldn’t be opposed to more 🙂

Wolf’s Capture (Kodiak Point #4) By: Eve Langalis

Wolfs Capture

Wolf’s Capture (Kodiak Point #4) By: Eve Langalis

Plot:

She might think she’s captured the wolf, but in the end, he’ll take her heart.

Brody is a soldier who misses the excitement of the military and its missions. He retired to work as clan beta in Kodiak Point. Talk about boring, until he’s captured by a foreign enemy.

Him, a prisoner?

Not for long. This wolf will do anything in order to get away–even if it involves seduction.

First step in plotting his escape: pretend interest in a woman. But Layla isn’t just any woman. She’s special.

Not human. Not shifter. He doesn’t know what this exotic lady is other than his.

A prisoner for years, Layla isn’t sure what to make of the enemy who shares a cell with her. He promises her hope, but that would involve trust. Despite her doubts, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Unacceptable which means she does her best to drive him nuts.

Working together, can they escape the clutches of the enemy?

And do they dare fall in love?

Welcome to Kodiak Point, where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

Review:

I liked Layla, after all she’d been through she still had hope, and a smart mouth. I wish we actually found out more about her. Her background, who her mother was, how she had the abilities that she did.

Brody was a good alpha male, full of himself but not to the point where he made mistakes. Maybe a little bland, but he got the job done.

I liked that we got to see all the other shifters, though not their mates, just the dudes. I’d like to know how their lives are going and I like it when authors bring previous characters back into play.

Only one more book left in the series and I’m excited to find out who the Master is, I have a pretty good guess, but I’m looking forward to seeing him get defeated.

Polar Bared (Kodiak Point #3) By: Eve Langalis

Polar Bared (Kodiak Point #3) By: Eve Langalis

Plot:

When Vicky accidentally slides into the side of a polar bear, she doesn’t expect to fall in love. Eaten yes, perhaps used as a chew toy, but become the object of a bear’s affection and lust? Crazy! Almost as crazy as the fact the polar bear turns out to be a man. A sexy man. A man who growls, and roars and does everything he can to chase her away. Only to come back. Gene only has one thing on his mind, vengeance, until Vicky crashes into his life. Poor Gene. After the pain and betrayal he suffered in the war all he wants is revenge against the brothers who left him behind. But he’s confused when instead of wanting to punish him for his evil acts, they offer him forgiveness. Who does that?! As if that weren’t annoying enough, the cutest geek he ever met–with caramel kissed skin and wearing the sexiest dark rimmed glasses–won’t leave him alone. Or more like, he can’t seem to stop following her. And it isn’t just because someone is out to hurt her. He wants her. But does he want her more than vengeance? Welcome to Kodiak Point where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

Review:

I loved Gene and Vicky. Poor scared Gene that went through so much, thankfully he never killed anyone during his quest for vengeance. I’m glad he turned back to the good side.

Vicky wasn’t the normal strong assertive heroine that I like, she was abused by her father and her husband and fainted any time she was stressed. I couldn’t help but like her though. She was trying so hard to create herself and stop being a victim and Boris helped her. He didn’t swaddle her up and protect her from the world he was abrasive and rude and she knew that he would never hurt her. I loved them as a couple.

Outfoxed by Love (Kodiak Point #2) By: Eve Langlais

outfoxed by love

Outfoxed by Love (Kodiak Point #2) By: Eve Langlais

Plot:

Don’t moose with his fox! A bullheaded moose doesn’t stand a chance when a fox decides to make him her mate. Boris left to defend his country still a boy. He came back a changed man. A damaged man. But Jan still wants him. A man of few words, Boris has a firm way of saying No, but this determined vixen knows he’s her mate. Despite some less than subtle overtures, Jan has not had much success in getting her bullheaded moose to notice her, but all that changes when her life is put in danger. Suddenly the damaged soldier keeps finding excuses to come to her rescue, but as far as Jan is concerned, her mate is the one in need of saving. It will take some subtle maneuvering to outfox her moose into admitting he loves her, but this wily vixen is more than ready for the challenge. And if that doesn’t work, momma’s offered to loan her the shot gun used for her own engagement.

Review:

So I liked Jan, she was a lady that could use many different weapons to kill you, too bad it took Boris so damn long to realize she was more than she appeared to be. Honestly the only thing that would have kept me waiting that long for a man was a literally uncontrollable force, and apparently that’s what their mating was. However, they were both able to still bang other people during this period which I find odd.

Boris annoyed me. He resisted Jan for years apparently all because he was damaged. I felt sorry for him at first but he was just too damn stubborn and took too long to come around.

Oh well, I like the town that’s being created and even though Boris was a stubborn pig I liked this story.
