Love Bites

Ryder has been friends with Tucker since they were in the first grade. They grew up together, they joined the Marines together and they moved to the vast metropolis of New York City together. Nothing could tear them apart.

Or so they believed. When they get bitten by a mysterious creature, they find themselves drawn together in a whole new way that is both exciting and terrifying. Neither of them is prepared to face the feelings they now have or what that could mean for their future.

This is the story of their quest for a cure, which takes them through such locales as Little Avalon, the Wild Wood and the haunted ruins of Old Syracuse. Together they must face down dangers and challenges even as they grapple with the life-shift of now being mated werewolves.

Join Ryder and Tucker for a fun, romantic adventure set in an Earth much like our own, but where magic and magical creatures are as much a part of the world as science and technology.

Moon Born

Tucker and Ryder figured that the worst was over. They’d gotten used to being lycans, they’d managed to not get killed by werewolf hunters and they’d stopped a crazy magician from trying to unleash Armageddon.

However, as they try to get back to their lives, they find a whole host of new problems awaiting them. The government has established a task force to deal with paranormal threats and lycans are at the top of that list. There is a monster prowling the dark places of New York City. And the Moon Spirit has an agenda for them to fulfill.

Moon Born continues the story of Love Bites, with new characters, new dangers and new complications for Ryder and Tucker’s relationship.

My View:

Am reviewing Love Bites and Moon Born from D River together because they belong together. Moon Born picks up pretty much where Love Bites leaves off. It continues the saga and newly made werewolves Tucker and Ryder, as well as their pack mate Trey.

These stories are not your typical shifter romances. First of all, they have plots. They have depth. They look at our world through the filter of a little bit of magic and fantasy. They point out inconsistencies and insufficiencies in our world. They kept me turning page after page. They left me wanting more.

In book 1, Love Bites, Tucker and Ryder have to come to terms with their new normal. That new normal has a lot of changes in store for them. There is, of course, their furry little problem. There is also the changing dynamic of their friendship and the rise of their sexual relationship. They also have to learn to take care of each other and a new pack member. All the while, they are trying to keep the world from the brink of the apocalypse.

Book 2, Moon Born, continues their journey. They have finally accepted their place in the world, but not everyone else seems to be on board. They have to use their new found power to change the world, literally. Along their various journies, they encounter an eclectic and rich cast of characters. They see fantastic parts of the world and even indulge in a little magic here and there.

I fell for Tucker and Ryder early on. I needed to know how their story ended. However, I don’t think it is yet over. Please tell me there is more.
