Ally doesn't want to have anything to do with werewolves.

    This follows Real Men Howl with another member of the Blackwood family finding his Mate . Yes I know that probably doesn’t sound terribly awesome or original but it’s a story that kept me happily turning the pages. Why ?

Ally is trying to stay one step ahead of a nasty piece of work but as this story begins she’s starting to think her past is catching up ! Kade might be the Alphas brother but he’s having difficulty following his latest order. Kade should be packing up his brothers latest and newest relative Tessa but his Wolf has scented his Mate and they are struggling to track her down. Well wouldn’t you know it all the time Kades been searching that allusive female was right where he was meant to be in Tessas house ! I much preferred this to the first book and that’s probably because I liked Ally a lot more. There’s a warmth to her that stops her being prickly and even though she certainly has issues Ally is wary not standoffish. Kade too stood out as even though he’s this big butch hero type I liked the time and patience he had for Ally. Again there’s cuteness overload here with a darling little pup and enough feline capers to make a grown man wince ! My only niggle is the bad guy as he really didn’t get enough page time so just didn’t feel that realistic. I do like the way this series is taking a natural progression though and will happily read more. This voluntary take is of an advance copy and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

    The second book in the Real Men Shift series, Real Men Snarl is a real eye-opening and exciting reads that keeps readers glued to the pages.

Ally and Kade are two strong, captivating characters that pull readers into their story and refuse to let go. The relationship between these two characters has quite a few obstacles to overcome but the most difficult one, Ally wants absolutely nothing to do with werewolves is one that evokes sympathy from readers and adds quite a bit of emotional turmoil despite the sizzling and immediate attraction that Ally feels toward Kade. The plot of this story is fast paced and flows smoothly with enthralling events that keeps readers turning the pages as it adds thrills and suspense story when Ally makes a life altering and emotional decision in order to keep herself safe from her past which also adds danger and excitement to the story. The authors have created a well-developed and fascinating werewolf world that I will definitely be keeping up with, although I did miss the first one…it’s a good thing I can fix that, right? The story is definitely a standalone story but does involve the characters from Real Men Howl and the Blackwood Pack. I enjoyed the characters and the world immensely and I am looking forward to reading Real Men Growl which is coming in August.

    I liked this second book much more, even shedding a tear or two. Kade and Ally were meant for each other.

    I enjoyed it. Ally and Kade have a different dynamic than the first book’s couple (Lucy, Ally’s BFF and Mason, Kade’s brother), but I liked the romance, the Firsts worked and there’s enough action and danger to keep things interesting. Now, I didn’t focus on this in my review for the first book, but the structure of the story and plot are similar to the first, so the flaws are the same. Is the villain that is just evil for evil’s sake? Yes. Is the setup for the conflict and big climactic scenes I enjoyed it.

That said, I can and will always forgive alot if the romance and humor hooks me and I just like Ms. Kyle and Ms. Maddix’s collaborative writing. So, if you love shifter romances and Celia Kyle’s brand of humor, you may enjoy this. I’m looking forward to the next one. For more reviews, visit

    Oh my gosh I thought book one was awesome yet this one was slightly better so I have no clue what adjective to use. This author combination rocks and I hope they have plenty of stories to regale us with. This is the story of Kade who is Mason's beta as well as hi younger brother. He is sent to Pepper to bring his Alpha's Mate's grandmother Tessa to Ashwood there he scents his mate and ignore's his alpha's orders to hunt her down. He finds her but in his wolf's enthusiasm he gets hit by a car thu Oh my gosh I thought book one was awesome yet this one was slightly better so I have no clue what adjective to use.

Then the shenanigans begin as I both laughed and cried as Ally and Kade got together and Ally learned to trust him. So glad that Brian got what he deserved in the end. I highly recommend this series. I voluntarily read an advance copy and have not been compensated in any way for this opinion.

    Don't Judge Others..... Ally Rose is keeping a big secret from her bestie Lucy and her grandmother whom she is staying with in the safe little town of Pepper, Georgia....Problem now is that Lucy after mating with Alpha of the Blackwood Pack Mason, wants her grandma packed up and moved to Ashwood and the one that has to get it done is Mason's is little brother Kade. When Kade steps out of his car in the small town he is struck with a sweet fragrance he and his wolf just won't ignore and he literal Don't Judge Others.....

When Kade steps out of his car in the small town he is struck with a sweet fragrance he and his wolf just won't ignore and he literally forgets the old lady as he searches for the recipient of said fragrance. Ally wants nothing to do with any wolf after what she's been through for the past 8 years running and hiding, now she might have to get her go bag and hi-tail it again....Problem is she loves the way this particular wolfman that's here to get Tessa, looks and smells, it's nothing like her ex..... Now she has blue vagi, great! LoL Coincidence to say the least when they arrive at the Blackwood Pack and discover they have much in common with Ally Rose and not in the good way either.

Not in an overbearing way, though. More like, he knows she's there and he knows he needs to find her and everything else can take a back seat to that. Then he does find he rand she's wary and doesn't want much of anything to do with him. Which has to suck for a werewolf who just found his special someone. As for Ally, she has a lot of adjusting to do. Her past experiences with wolves and packs isn't anything like the Blackwood pack and it takes some time for her and her wolf to come to terms with that. But once she does and she starts talking, things fall into place. Not just for her, but for Lucy, too. Answers. Ally has a few and that's a good thing. My love of all things werewolves continues with this series and I'm ALL IN for Gavin's book. -Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal

    Wow, wow, wow. What an amazing story. This is layers upon layers upon layers of secrets that are not meant to harm but to protect. Ally is a made shifter, not born like Kade, and her made-birth story is sad and heartbreaking. But Kade... He is the epitome of what a mate is to one who has been abused and nearly broken by the man who is supposed to be her Alpha. ~~~ “I will be your shield,” he whispered, “if you’ll let me.

He is the epitome of what a mate is to one who has been abused and nearly broken by the man who is supposed to be her Alpha. ~~~ “I will be your shield,” he whispered, “if you’ll let me. I’ll protect you from whatever is haunting you. I’ll protect you from everything—past, present and future. Let me.” (Kindle Location 979) “Let me be the one who stands between you and everything you fear.” (Kindle Location 1206) ~~~ Ally is a multi-faceted character who left me wondering, “What is her deal?” Her timidity was at odds with her moments of strength, casting shadows over who I thought I had her pinned to be, what her story was. But the conflicting personalities doesn’t make her wake, not at all. She is strong to have made it this far in life without guidance, without support for her transition from human to shifter. If you haven’t read the first book, Real Men Howl, I suggest you do but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this one. Characters from Howl make appearances in Snarl, and an important piece of the plot line ties both stories together. This is a series I can’t wait to continue reading.

    It was pretty good. What I didn't like - There were some errors that should have been caught before publication. I know Gavin will be getting a book, so I can't say I'm happy about lusting after a woman on the beach griping about how he wants to enjoy beach bunnies for an afternoon. I don't like promiscuous characters, and I really don't like shifters who know they'll have a fated mate being with anyone else. It's basically cheating. There were times I didn't think like the flow of the story and It was pretty good. What I didn't like - There were some errors that should have been caught before publication.

    I had a hard time with my feelings for Ally, which affected my rating for this book. I didn't like her. I understood her misgivings, but totally judging someone on someone else's mistakes was just stupid. I would have been able to get over it if she had just let Kade's actions speak for the type of person/wolf he was, but still that didn't make her budge or shift her opinion. Even after meeting the rest of the pack she acted like a idiot, when she should have been confiding in them or at the very I had a hard time with my feelings for Ally, which affected my rating for this book.

Having the rest of the gang there kept me from going below 3 stars. I loved Charlie and it was nice getting to see Lucy and Mason, plus I really liked Kade. And... finally a shifter mating story that makes a bit more sense to me than the last couple I've read.

    MUCH better than ok one. The characters were more likeable and the story had a lot going for it. The heroine was understandably weary but wasn't a cold hard bitch like the first heroine. The hero was still sort of one dimensional and blah but again not as much as book 1's hero. I hope book three knocks my socks off then it comes off.

She managed to escape and spends the next several years on the run-no pack, no real understanding of werewolves, and no one to turn to. Then Kade shows up and everything changes. Ally doesn't know anything about fated mates (or even packs and wolves to be honest) so to say she is leery of Kade is a huge understatement. However, he knows her BFF so she is willing to take a chance. She can feel the desire between them, but her previous experience with werewolves was so horrific she feels she can't trust anyone. Kade is patient with her and I loved that about him. He can recognize the fear and confusion so he doesn't push. His love is simply there. He is willing to wait and do what is necessary to show her that her previous experience isn't the reality of wolf packs. The danger comes from Ally's ex, who isn't as willing to let her go. Real Men Snarl is pretty short so its perfect if you want a quick fated mates story! Ally's inner turmoil will keep you interested because you will want to know what the heck happened to her to make her so terrified! The supporting characters also bring depth to a fairly short story and I appreciated that. The characters are dynamic and developed despite the brevity. Finally, Kendall Taylor is one of my favorite female narrators so I highly recommend the audio!   POV: 3rd Tears: no Trope: shifters, fated mates, crazy ex Triggers: (view spoiler)[Ally was physically abused and tortured (hide spoiler)] Series/Standalone: stand alone within an interconnected series Cliffhanger: (view spoiler)[no (hide spoiler)] HEA: (view spoiler)[yes (hide spoiler)] authors like Milly Taiden, Eve Langlais, Jennifer Ashley...then you will probably like Real Men Snarl!   Real Men Snarl See full review on The Book Disciple

Ally is a turned wolf, and not by her choice but as a result of another man’s obsession and sense of extreme power. He is cruel beyond description and at the first successful chance she got Ally ran and has spent a nomad life since always looking over her shoulder. In Pepper, Georgia she reconnected with an old friend Lucy, and her grandmother Tessa. They gave her a sense of family once again, yet she always kept her nose to the ground, literally since Brian’s scent stank, ready to run at a second’s notice. Now Lucy has found her happy ever after with the perfect man for her and wants her grandmother to move to her new location. Ally is ready to run again because she’s catching a familiar scent around town, but her wolf isn’t so quick to scoot because there is also another tantalizing scent that Ally’s wolf wants more of. As soon as Kade hit the small town of Pepper he scented her… his fated mate. Now he has to track her down, get Lucy’s grandmother moved back to the Blackwood Pack’s territory as quickly as possible since his Alpha and brother Mason is being scolded by his new mate, Lucy to get it done… now. But Kade is determined to find his mate before leaving town. Little did he know that she was right where he was supposed to be all along, right with Tessa. Yet finding his mate is the easy part, getting her to trust any wolf and believe in the mate bond they both feel is another situation all together. Real Men Snarl grabbed my attention from the first page and never let me down for one moment. Ally is a wounded soul, yes, but her strength is obvious since she’s survived a forced turning. Kade is an amazing hero, he may not have all the answers right now, but his patience will pay off in the long run when Ally finally reveals all that has happened to her. When that danger arrives on their doorstep, threatening so many people he loves but especially Ally, Kade will do anything to keep his mate safe. Quite simply, I loved this story. The authors kept the tensions strung just tight enough to be bearable with some surprises and twists along the way. I’m definitely looking forward to Gavin’s story next. If you love Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance then this story and series is one you should be checking out. Steamy moments, danger, family, humor and a touch of snark at times… you’ll be hooked very easily. I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.

    This is an OK shifter romance, but it was a bit too short to have enough character development. Quite a bit of information was provided on Ally, but I especially needed more backstory on Kade.

Quite a bit of information was provided on Ally, but I especially needed more backstory on Kade. I really liked Ally and Kade, but thought that Kade was a little too pushy with her. He figured out that she had suffered bad experiences as a werewolf, but didn't at first take that into consideration in pushing her to accept him as her mate. He didn't know the specifics of her experience, or how bad it was -- since she wouldn't talk about it -- but he shouldn't have assumed she would not be affected by it. When he did find out the whole story, he got better, but I would have liked for him to be gentler with her at the start. I also thought that Ally's horrible experience of becoming a werewolf, and being abused by the pack that changed her, would have made her much more reluctant to spend any time with Kade and his pack. She was reluctant, but not as much as I would expect from someone with her past trauma. Overall, it was a quick, mildly entertaining read. It does feature instalove, but that is typical in shifter romances. If you are looking for a quick shifter read, with some steamy scenes, this is a good choice. My rating system is below. 1 star -- Hated it, or did not finish. I usually only give this rating if some of the content is truly objectionable to me, like if one of the main characters does something really awful, and gets away with it. 2 stars -- Didn't like it. This rating usually means that I thought the writing wasn't very good, the editing was terrible, I didn't like the characters, or it had other major flaws. 3 stars -- I liked it, but had some minor issues with it. This rating means that there were minor editing issues, the story needed more character development, it was just too unrealistic, or had some other fairly minor issue. The majority of books I read get this rating – I do not consider it a bad rating. 4 stars -- I liked it a lot. This is a high rating for me, and I rarely give a higher one. 5 stars -- I loved it, and will probably read it again. Very few books are good enough to get this rating from me. The ones that do are usually classics.

One scent she is strongly drawn too but the other could be the alpha she has been hiding from. She runs home planning to escape never realizing she is being followed by a wolf. Kade is second in his pack and the alpha has given him the job of helping the alpha's mate's grandmother packed up and moved to their pack. The minute Kade hits town, he scents another werewolf and to his surprise the werewolf is his mate. He spends a week searching for his mate . but has no luck until he lets her wolf sniff her out. He is so intent on tracking her that he is hit by a car and injured. Ally hears the accident and ends up bring Kade home to take care of him even though she really is scared of want he wants. She doesn't believe Kade when he says she is his mate. She is still planning on running and hiding until the wolf who changed her makes it clear is knows where she is and is coming for her. Ally decides to go along with Kade as an easy way to escape without a trace. However her time with Kade's pack teaches her that not all werewolves are mean and evil. Maybe being Kade's mate won't be so bad. This is a great book. I really loved how strong Ally was. I voluntarily received a copy of this story and this is my honest review.

    WOW such a brilliant read that's funny, heartwarming and educational (well sort of!) The writing duo of Celia Kyle and Marina Maddix is absolutely pure rainbows!

I loved the way Kade tries everything except standing on his head in order for Ally to feel comfortable with him. The way that his wolf just turned into a playful puppy for her was adorable and the way that her wolf turned into a hussy with a tail was priceless. ...if she had ever gotten passed Ally's human principles then she would have definitely shaken her tail at Kade! That wolf wanted to play with her mate! Little Charlie remains as sweet as a cupcake covered in frosting and topped with sprinkles. And Tessa has to have her own stories told! PLEASE! The world needs to know what she got up to! If it can make a seasoned werewolf blush then I demand we are told! And I'm sure Tessa's been watching the same TV as me! A fabulous second book in this funny but heartwarming pnr romance series. It's getting better and better - though how they're gonna get better from here is anyone's guess! But I can't wait to find out what happens to he glaring (who knew!). Thank you for an amazing book....keep them coming

Kade had been ordered by his Alpha and brother Mason to help pack up his mate and her grandmother Tessa and move them to pack lands in Ashtown. After Ally's experience with Brian and terror she had experienced at his hands she is not a trusting individual, but her wolf knows who Kade is and keeps trying to fight Ally for control. Kade knows something happened to make Ally fight against the mate attraction but he is not aware of her past and he will take it as slow as needed to gain his mate's trust and love. Brian is just as determined to find Ally and nothing will stop him from taking her back or killing her to get what his demented mind says is his. Brian is about to find out just how determined Kade and the rest of the Blackwood pack are to keep Ally safe and along the way we get to catch up with the other characters from book one especially little Charlie and Ghost Kitty. Thank you to Celia Kyle and Marina Maddix for the wonderful review copy. Love this series, so I bought a copy for myself as well.

    Kade only had to go to Pepper, GA and pack up Lucy’s grandmother. But he got a bit sidetracked. Ally wants nothing to do with wolves. She was turned without her consent and doesn’t trust any of them. Kade wants her attention and plans to get it. She is his mate. When you first meet Ally, you have to laugh a bit. She is dog walking. That takes skill but I think her being a wolf helped a great deal. And it would figure, another Riverson and he is tangled up with her past.

Plus you have to love how Kade meets Ally, well that was a brave way to go. And instead of it being like the first book, we sort of have it in reverse. You know Kade is enjoying all that, well without the pain would have been nice. And if he would have just done what Mason said first, he would have saved himself some time. It was also sad that Ally had a bad experience and now it was up to Kade to make it right. Bless his heart. Ally’s past is the real test and issue. Kade had to break through all that evil that she believes about mates and mating. It broke my heart to realize that she was treated so badly when she was turned and not is a good way. Now I know all of the Riverson’s are pure evil. UGH! And what happens to Charlie. I cried. But once Ally reveled all, it was tragic and evil. We need find Gavin’s fated mate. And hopefully we will find out what happened to Rachel.

She is afraid that Kade will be unable to protect and take care of her. She won't tell Kade why she is afraid but she smells Brian and knows he has found her and will kill her if given the chance. Ally agrees to go with Kade and Tessa. Brian finds her and hurts a member of the Blackwood pack. Will Kade be able to protect Ally and the rest of the pack? Will Ally accept that she is Kade's fated mate? A wonderful collaboration of two amazing authors. Happy that the story is written about a survivor as this subject is taboo by many authors. It is covered in a way that may help other women and men in this situation. I loved the romance, acceptance and love. I was honored to receive an E-arc from Marina Maddox and Celia Kyle for an honest review and no other compensation.

    I really enjoy anything that Celia Kyle writes. You get the nice push of steamy romance with just the faintest hint of dark to shade things in. They are generally pretty quick and easy reads, and a nice way to spend an afternoon. Ally was attacked by a werewolf that thought that she was his mate and turned into a werewolf herself. Ever since she was able to get away from that evil man, she's worked very hard to stay away from him, going so far as to keep a go-bag packed so that all she has to do I really enjoy anything that Celia Kyle writes.

Ever since she was able to get away from that evil man, she's worked very hard to stay away from him, going so far as to keep a go-bag packed so that all she has to do is grab it and go. But now she's settled in with her best friend and her grandmother, and she's content. But then she smells wolves in the air. One is her tormentor, and one is a stranger. Kade is one of the leaders for the Blackwood pack. Now that his brother has a mate, he's been sent down to help move her grandmother up to live with them. While he's doing that, he smells his mate, and finds out it's Ally, but she wants to have absolutely nothing to do with him. This is a good story. I loved getting to see Charlie again. And the old lady is just a hoot. I can't get enough of her and I hope we have more of her in the next book!

    Ally ran when her ex boyfriend essentially forced her to become a werewolf and then demeaned her because he realised she was not his mate. She managed to escape and found safety with an old school friend and her sparky grandmother. When her friend moved to another town, she gets a shock when the man sent to help her adopted grandmother move is a werewolf! She assumes he is just like the a&%hole she ran from. However, Kade is a nice guy, wrapped in a protective and possessive male shell!

However, Kade is a nice guy, wrapped in a protective and possessive male shell! When it's clear that Ally is running from something he makes it his mission to protect her but also to show her that not all packs were blood thirsty and dysfunctional like the one she witnessed. I loved how patient and understanding Kade was, all whilst still pressing his suit with Ally. He gave her space to think, just not to run off! Ally is a great mix of spunky, independent, naïve and strong willed. Grandma Tessa and little Charlie, OMG they almost stole the show. The "baddie" was a tad 2 dimensional but only because I felt we didn't get to meet him long enough to real build up my hatred of him LOL!
