Blurb:  Running down the Florida beaches to stay ahead of trouble, Robert and Lance find a connection Robert never desired, but doesn’t want to let go of.

Robert isn’t sure how he feels about all the changes happening to the other Watchers. He has always believed in Watchers staying detached from the shifters they oversee, but that was before he had a little too much sushi and way too much sake and woke up married to Lance, a really sexy raccoon shifter.
Before he can sort out exactly what happened, the two find themselves mixed up in a mess with a tiger shifter who is part of a group of Russian shifters up to no good. While Robert tries to sort out the situation, Lance is focused on diverting Robert’s attention to him in the most sexual way possible.
Running down the Florida beaches to stay ahead of trouble, Robert and Lance find a connection Robert never envisioned, but doesn’t want to let go of.

Blurb:  Lex’s life as a Watcher is about to get a lot more complicated when he decides to take on an apprentice, and her protective single father.

As the Watcher for the Northeast, Lex loves lobster, being in the woods, and sex. That last part, though, he keeps hidden from the other Watchers, because they’re supposed to be above those kinds of desires. He gets his fill of men from the local shifter clubs whenever he’s out doing his Watcher duties, and this one is no different. A hot guy, a night of fast sex, and he’s out the door again without anyone knowing more than his name.

But this time it is different, because that one night hook-up is Tucker, and his daughter is Lex’s first apprentice. Addie is headstrong, demanding, and more than Lex can handle. He never thought a seven year old little girl would be a match for him, but she is, and worse than that is how her father drives Lex nuts one minute and makes him think about the impossibilities of forever in the next.

When Yuri realizes that Regi is his mate, he knows that he needs to protect the raven.

Book Review: Kenai by Caitlin Ricci and A.J. Marcus

Reviewed by Morgan 

28093803Title: Kenai
Authors: Caitlin Ricci and A.J. Marcus
Series: Watchers #1
Heroes: Kenai/Derek
Genre: MM Paranormal
Length: 46 Pages
Publisher: Extasy Books
Release Date: December 8, 2015

Blurb:  Watchers aren’t supposed to get attached to the shifters they protect, but this mountain lion is getting tired of playing by the rules.

Watchers never get attached. Kenai has heard that rule all his life. He started his training as a small child and his mentor became his world. Now, at nineteen, he’s handling the shifters in the Pacific Northwest on his own. He only interferes with them when he has to—otherwise his life is spent alone. As a mountain lion shifter he doesn’t mind the solitude, but in his visions he sees shifters going off and having adventures, and he desperately wants one for himself. When he meets a bear shifter walking through the woods near his cabin, he’s all in and ready for whatever the bear wants to do.

Derek finds the overly energetic mountain lion annoying. He won’t stop bouncing around, and eventually he has to put Kenai in his place, which sends Kenai darting off. He does want some company though, so he follows Kenai’s trail back to his cabin and invites him to the salmon pools for a feast. He thought everyone knew what went on at those pools, so he’s surprised when Kenai reveals he’s a virgin. That isn’t the only secret this mountain lion is hiding, though, and when Derek finds out Kenai is a Watcher and practically a god to the shifters despite his young age, it might be more than he’s able to handle.

Review: Kenai is a watcher – a pre-cognitive shifter who arbitrates shifter problems. He’s been made to believe that he can only be a watcher if he lives his life alone.

When he has a dream (the way he gets all his arbitration information) about a bear and screams and salmon – he ends up following a bear shifter up to a salmon pond one day and they end up a couple.

He’s not sure what the screams mean but he’s worried about having a boyfriend.

**

I kind of feel like that was a bit of review Haiku. But that’s what the story felt like for me, too.

Kenai’s lonely. Then he meets someone. They like each other. Various shifter things happen. The end.

I can’t recommend this – though I really liked the premise of a watcher, and I love the idea that our little Kenai finally has a friend- it just didn’t do much for me. It was too all over the place, and I didn’t really get a good feel for Kenai’s bear mate, so I don’t know how’d they do as a couple.

Overall Impression:  It was okay, but not good

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
