The Delight

After utterly enjoying the amusing and spicy yet laced with suspense Kodiak Point paranormal romances, I was ready to head to a new location down on the bayou for some southern shifters and their new nemesis.  The Bitten Point Omnibus brings all four in the series together in one place and I was eager to jump in with a new to me narrator telling the tales.

 

Review

The first of the series is Croc’s Return.  Nothing like a prodigal son, second chance romance, and shifters going missing to get things rolling with Caleb and Remy’s story.  There was good humor, but this one touched on deeper subjects, too.  I loved Caleb’s bantering, but also his willingness to make things right even if he was tricked into leaving.  Remy kept him at arm’s length for a bit, but she saw Caleb was telling her the truth and she never lost her feelings for him.  Loved the mystery and action side.

Panther’s Claim had me giggling right away when wolf shifter, Cynthia, abducts panther shifter, Daryl because she thinks he had something to do with her friend Aria’s disappearance.  It doesn’t take long for flirty cat Daryl to tumble into, admittedly reluctant, need for the funny and attractive Cyn who might not be resisting his charm that hard.  Monsters are loose in Bitten Point once again and the mysterious situation continues though there is something of a break through, literally, in the exciting end.  And, is that flying monster friend or foe…

Constantine, Caleb’s brother, gets his story in Python’s Embrace.  Constantine and his itty, bitty Chihuahua, Princess, finding the missing Aria in the swamp.  She loses her memories which return a bit at a time as she and Constantine work to stay safe from the monsters after them and working to forward the group investigation into the monsters’ presence in Bitten Point.  Can a python worried about sticking out a relationship and an eagle who has too many secrets to have one give it a chance?  The conspiracy at Vitek gets blown wide open just in time for the final story.

Gator’s Challenge rounds out the series with Wes and Melanie’s story.  Melanie is Darryl’s sister and the wife of Andrew from Vitek.  Wes is a Vitek guard and the one who sounds the alarm back on the first story on trouble at the company.  He comes from the criminal wrong side of the tracks family and doesn’t think he’ll ever beat the wrap.  When Vitek gets moved and pushes forward with their nefarious plans, Melanie’s children are in the crossfire so she is coerced, but Wes’s betrayal as a Vitek employee is more than it seems and so is their smoldering hidden attraction.

Bitten Point Omnibus, like the earlier Kodiak Point, are a good blend of humor, sexy times, intrigue, and a unique gang of shifter characters.  Each book were connected by a circle of friends and family in their small community of Bitten Point where shifters hide in plain sight from the humans and each book portrays a different romance trope from second chance, first timers, and enemies to lovers.

I had a few little niggles like a couple of the heroines slamming themselves or other gals as sluts just for having a healthy libido over perfectly eligible guys.  Just a personal preference about that term, I guess.  The first book did have the job of introduction so it felt slower as a result until the end and the middle two also had some times when I was impatient, but the last one kept up the pace all the way through.  Like I said- small niggles.

I enjoyed seeing the series arc build in the background and even following some of the ambivalent characters like Ace the lizard guy to discovering the truth behind the mystery.  There is a fun crossover moment and big reveal in the last book.  More than one reveal, actually, with one leading naturally into the follow up series, Dragon Point, with a villain still at large and Ace getting his story first.

Chandra Skye is a narrator name I’m familiar with, but this was my first time listening in to her work.  I liked her soft southern accent for the Bitten Point characters and thought she did a good range of voices so I could distinguish all the characters.  Her male voices could get a little raspy, but it worked.  Her separate voices for the animal side of the shifters was great and she caught the tone of the stories so well.

All in all, this was a fun and spicy collection of paranormal romances that I can recommend.

My thanks to Tantor Audio for the opportunity to listen to this collection in exchange for an honest review.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

‘A fun and spicy collection of paranormal romances’ … OOH! A collection my sister in law would love. As for me? Not a genre I’d usually read and there are aspects of this book that you hi-light in your review that confirm that they aren’t books I’d enjoy and yet I sense an underlying sense of humour that has me thinking again.

This is another author which I see you and Melanie enjoy but I haven’t managed to read yet. How long is this omnibus? Great review!

It was about 25 hours listening. I broke it up between other books. Some of her stuff is fun and I enjoyed it while others are meh. I like her cyborgs’ series, her Welcome to Hell, and Kodiak Point and this one.

Glad to tempt you, Sherry! Sometimes the first books in her series go up for free so maybe you can try that way and see. 🙂 But, yes, I had a good time with al these fun shifters.
