I have been doing a lot of listening and a lot of reading but haven't felt in the mood to review any of the books as they have all been meh!
That is until yesterday when I opened up Amber Kell's Banded Brothers series and ended up reading three of them in one day!
To Have a Human (Banded Brothers #1) by Amber Kell 4*
BLURB Sometimes it’s the family you choose that loves you the most.
Carey Gale always knew about shifters. It was difficult not to know when your best friends could turn into some of the deadliest beasts. When he gets a daytime job to support his band working at a shifter owned business, he doesn't expect to fall hopelessly in lust with Broden Lyall, the company’s alpha. Sadly, Broden thinks little of humans. He considers them helpless and weak. But when hunters come after Carey’s friends, Broden learns that not all humans are alike, and he will do anything to have one slim, blond human.
To Catch A Croc (Banded Brothers #2) by Amber Kell 4*
BLURB: Protect those you love, annihilate everyone else.
For as long as he could remember Denton Stills has followed his friend Carey around. When Carey gets a mate Denton starts to consider maybe it is time for him to find his forever man. However the only one sniffing around is an obnoxious puma who seems to think Denton is as good as his. When saltwater crocodile shifters try to move into Denton’s territory he takes a page from Carey’s father “protect those you love, annihilate everyone else. Will Denton be able to hold back a shifter invasion with his friends or will he have to ask for help from the one man who makes him thinks happily ever after might be possible?
To Enchant an Eagle (Banded Brothers #3) by Amber Kell 4*
BLURB: When love is on the line, crossing it is the only path to take.
Eaton Franks has had his eye on Marty, the leader of the hawks, for a long time. After he rescues the bad boy, things take a tragic turn and it looks as if the gang leader might never fly again. When Eaton has the chance to use a sorcerer to fix the love of his life, little does he know it will lead to his own abduction.
Marty is beside himself when his eagle shifter is stolen. He knows they are mates and he’s willing to do anything to get him back. However, now he has to decide if he is willing to give up his hawk half in order to save his eagle. Sometimes love makes a man do crazy things.
My Review: These books are really good. The characters are well rounded and the storyline kept me intrigued to the last page. They seem to be able to be read as stand alone's but I'm not too sure seeing as how I read them one after the other! I liked the fact that paranormals are an accepted part of society in these books and that the band has both human and shifters in it. In fact my only critique would be that Amber needs to make her books longer so that I don't eat them up so quickly :D
