As Big As The Sky

by

Amy Aislin

Sam wants nothing to do with his irresponsible, sarcastic neighbor…or does he?

Sam McAuley is having a rough start to the summer: Not only is he being sued, but the new guy running the animal rehabilitation center next door has no idea what he’s doing and his runaway chickens constantly end up in Sam’s pristine yard. 

Everything is temporary for Bo Novak. For as long as he can remember, it’s been one town to the next, one school to the next, one job to the next. Even his current job—running his sister’s animal rehab center while she’s away on a four-month leave—is temporary. And he does know what he’s doing, thank you very much. Sure, things don’t always run smoothly, but the stick-in-the-mud next door could be a little nicer about it. 

One overheard conversation, an olive branch, and a baseball game might show these guys that being at odds isn’t really what they want, and that what they want might just be each other.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Werewolves of Manhattan collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.  

I have been reading romance and paranormal’s for over 30 years and can honestly say that I love a good paranormal romance more than any other kind of story.  It was not until 5 years ago that I started read m/m romance stories.  There is just something about the worlds created in them that seem more attractive to me. So over the years you come to cherish and love certain authors more than many others.  It is the way they tell a story that will have you wishing you were right there with them.  And sometimes you wished you were the one falling in love 

Tis author’s characters are quirky as hell, protective to the point of well you can guess that answer.  I still have my ultimate favorite ones but many start to work their way into my heart.  Her stories also are full of action, suspense and danger plus some hot sexy time for our guys.  They catch my attention the moment I start reading and keep it all the way to the very last word.  This story gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more.

Richard has got to be one of the smartest men I have ever seen.  Things in his life have not always been easy.  His best friend had disappeared when he was a small child after his parents were killed.  He lost both his father and mother to illness.  Then when the company he worked for wouldn’t listen to the dangers of one of his designs, he was fired for blowing the whistle on the dangers.  Now he is working at a store and bartending to make ends meet, as well as paying on his student loans.  To top it off a mob guy from Serbia has his eye on him.  Things are not looking up.  That is until someone connected to his dear friend finds him.

Now here he is with a job at Garou Industires and living with a very sexy man.  Things might just be going good for him.  That is until the Serbian is killed and the cop is trying to frame him.  Let’s see how Julien and the other wolves protect him; well you are just going to have to read this book to find out more.

I love how it has that serious tone to it but there is a bit of humor in it that your attention is captivated throughout it all. I loved the cover and that was what caught my attention first.  I just can’t seem to get enough of this series. There is something about the way that A.C. Katt tells you a story more than likely have you laughing your ass off at parts of it. 

It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book. I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

There he meets Dr. Jamil Ahlid, the head archaeologist, and discovers someone he could love.

In doing so, he also uncovers something so dangerous that his very life could be forfeit. Meeting Anubis ends up being the best thing that happens to him.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Anubis, an earth warrior, is sent on a mission to find out what artifact archaeologist, Jamil, has discovered. He finds he has to face his past while keeping his true self a secret from Jamil. 

I really enjoyed this story as I love stories about Egyptian gods and shifters. Well written with adventure, action, mystery and danger as Anubis must try and protect Jamil from someone who wants a powerful book that has been thought lost for centuries and will stop at nothing to attain it.

I loved the peeks into who Anubis was and what transpired all those years ago before he was killed and changed. It was heart-breaking to say the least. I also loved all the wonderful tidbits about the different artifacts throughout. I find it fascinating when an author combines ancient stories into modern ones with twists and turns. 

I certainly hope there will be more books in this fascinating series. Highly recommended.

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: Kellan Largant and Bastet are drawn into an ancient battle while learning to love each other.

Kellan Largent is a grad student at Harvard. His thesis is on ancient Egyptian religious cults. While immersed in his research, he comes across an obscure reference to the Earth Warrior cult. Little does he know that one sentence in a dusty tattered book will engulf him in a battle between good and evil. A battle that could be the end of the world as he knows it.

The stray cat wandering the streets around Kellan’s house is more than an abandoned feline. Bastet has roamed the earth from the days when Egypt was young. He’s watched the pharaohs rise and fall. New gods come and go. His purpose has remained the same: Protect the earth at all costs and keep the secrets of the Earth Warriors from regular mortals. He’s sent to keep Kellan Largent from finding out the truth about the cult, but also to keep the unsuspecting college student alive.

One man will do anything for the spell that created the Warriors. He wants immortality and killing Kellan for the secret is just the beginning of the trouble he’ll cause to get what he wants.

ISBN:  MLR-1-02016-0555

Product Link: http://www.mlrbooks.com/ShowBook.php?book=TACBASTT

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Bastet is one of eight brothers who are chosen by a Egyptian god and tasked with protecting earth. They are called Earth Warriors and have the ability to shift into whatever animal represents that particular god. Bastet’s animal is a cat.

Kellan is a university student at Harvard. While collecting information on his thesis he stumbles across the knowledge of Earth Warriors. Bastet needs to get close to him to find out what he knows so he meets him as cat then as a man. The attraction between the two is immediate.

Bastet is to keep Kellan from finding out the truth about the Earth Warriors and their existence but things do not go as planned when a man hellbent on finding the spell to make the warriors will stop at nothing from attaining it.

I liked the story as it contains mystery, suspense, drama, shifters and a great plot, that grabs the reader’s attention and keeps their attention. As well as the Earth Warriors themselves as I found them fascinating. I would like to more about how they came to be the earth warriors, why they were chosen and the circumstances surrounding their deaths.  

Great read.

Christopher Locke is a man with a tarnished reputation. When he’s transferred to Waterford Station to serve as inspector, he meets Jonathan Blade, his new partner. Jonathan thinks Christopher is a brute. Chris thinks Jonathan is a snob. Both think the other is more than attractive, which might be more dangerous than the enemies they must face.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Inspector Locke is transferred to Waterford after being disgraced. Inspector Blade is not happy that he is partnered with Locke and assumes the things he’s heard is true.

To me this story is about two men who fight the attraction they have for one another and who should have gotten to know each other before believing rumors about the other. I liked that they worked together despite their misgivings at the beginning, as everyone deserves to be heard and justice to be served.

There is an interesting and fascinating paranormal aspect to a story that was already interesting because of the main characters. I loved all the different paranormals introduced and am looking forward to reading more.

Blurb: It’s funny how one small circumstance of being in the wrong place at the wrong time can fuck up the life you had.

Odin James’s world changed forever when he witnessed his best friend being murdered. The people he thought were meant to protect him may just be working for the man who wants him dead. Trust doesn’t come easy–throw a mate into the mix and everything suddenly slides out of control.

Tom Wylie is the beta of his pack. When his alpha requests he take a police witness and keep him safe, Tom doesn’t know what he’s getting into. One sniff of the man, and he knows Odin is his mate. Protecting Odin from the bad shit after him is a given.

Life gets complicated when they realise things aren’t what they seem. Odin isn’t as human as he believed, and his birthright wants him dead. With the help of Tom’s pack, will Odin and Tom beat the odds thrown at them, and come out on top, or will evil win?

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Odin James witnesses the murder of his best friend. As a result the man who committed the murder wants him dead before he can testify or so Odin thinks. The FBI find out there’s a leak in the department and that Odin’s whereabouts have been compromised. In order to better protect him Patric enlists the help of Tom. 

Tom is a beta wolf in Patric’s pack. He knows Odin is his mate the moment he sees him. What I liked about this story was Odin had no idea of who or what he is or why his uncle is really after him. Along with another group who desperately want to rid the earth of all supernaturals Odin and Tom find themselves in a fight for their lives.

I really liked this book however I felt that the good guys were too tame. I mean they are fighting to live yet when people attacked them or took them hostage they’re reactions didn’t meet the situation in my opinion. Other than that it was a great read.

I hope to read more in this series.

Blurb: Josh the vampire hunter falls in lust with one of the enemy; Richard has secrets and might not be sane–oh, sure, this will work.

Josh hunts vampires with relentless, cold precision until the night he confronts a gorgeous hunk of vamp in the woods outside Ithaca. Richard destroys all of his prejudices about vampires in the first few moments of conversation and the sexual sparks between them ignite almost as quickly. Richard offers the stability Josh never had. Josh offers the healing Richard needs so desperately.

But it’s nearly impossible just to walk away from a life of violence. An attack one evening leaves a friend in the hospital, Richard with a bullet through his chest, muttering about strange creatures, and Josh fighting to piece together what really happened. Are Richard’s nightmare attackers real, or is Josh’s favorite vamp losing his mind? Is there a reasonable explanation or has the hunter now become prey?

This title has been previously published.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Josh is a vampire hunter who has been on a mission to destroy all vampires ever since the death of his twin sister at the hands of one. He does not care if they have committed a crime or not. 

Richard is a very old vampire who is attacked by Josh. Richard has suffered a great loss of his own many years before. He knocks Josh out and takes him home.

I liked that when Josh came to he did not automatically fall for or believe Richard. Richard’s tale was as heart-breaking as Josh’. Even with their differences the two men find common ground over the loss of loved ones and form a bond. 

But people from Josh’s hunter group think Josh has gone soft and so in turn make a plan to draw him out and end him. I liked the story. It was well written with the right amount of romance, drama, suspense, action. The hunters were vicious. Josh learns that he may have been a pawn in the destruction of innocent vampires by the leader of the hunters. 

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in The Mark of the Jersey Devil collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I have read many stories over the years both contemporary and paranormal, but I must say that I think paranormal stories will always be my favorite. And with favorite stories, you have favorite authors that will entertain you and keep you begging for more. I came across both of these authors when they started publishing their stories and they have made a way onto my list of favorite authors. So when I found out that they were going to write together, let’s just say I was stoked.

The worlds in this story and the previous are unique and very detailed. They keep your attention throughout the whole book. I love the whole mystery and ghosts that come along with these stories. I love how the guys just seem to work perfectly together and even the long lost brother helps them. Although Tad has me a bit worried, and why didn’t Ryder mention what he saw concerning Tad. 

Ryder lost his job and thanks to a best friend, he ends up moving to Chicago and works with his buddy. However on a night out he comes across a beautiful woman in white, who might lead him on a different chase then he had expected. He has been approached by Resurrection Mary. However Mary might have been taken over, because now she is downright pissy and needs Ryder’s help.

Paval has given them another job to look at, so Oleg and his friends head out to look at the site of Resurrection Mary. Then he gets a very scared call from a man who needs their help. It would seem Mary has attached herself to Ryder and that is really Oleg’s place. Oleg needs to find out what is really going on with the ghost to keep his new love safe. 

This is an action pact and danger filled story where love finds away. I enjoyed reading this story and look forward to reading many more stories written by these two authors.

I can’t wait to read the next story in this amazing series. This is one book I would recommend.
