Sometimes I will get really caught up in a series and not want to wait on starting the next book.  I don’t think I’m alone in that.  So instead of stopping taking the time to write up a review… I simply dive in to the next story until I’ve finished an entire series back to back.  Which is great for submerging myself in another world… not so great for timely reviews.

Over the course of four months or so I’d binge read four long series back to back.  Reviewed only the beginnings of them.  Now I’m faced with going back and reviewing three of those long series (I finally got one of them completed).  It’s not that I didn’t love them, I did, so much so that I didn’t want to leave that world.

But never again will I binge read in that fashion.  I’ll read them back to back if they’re long, older series that I want to get caught up on, that’s not an issue.  I will, however, take the time to review as each one is finished.  I won’t make that mistake again.  Now I’m left with stories that I absolutely loved and now feel guilty about not reviewing each at the time I read them.  So, no.  Not gonna happen that way again.

It’s true that I’m not one bit afraid to start (at the beginning) of older series.  I do my best to keep up to date with ongoing series and review new releases in a timely fashion for I know the value of reviews to authors.  Yet when it means that I have to start two or more years ago in order to understand an entire series that I haven’t read a word about yet, then yes I’ll go back to the very first book. (and that is true for any of my genre specific blogs not just Shifters)  The only exception to that are NetGalley reviews, those have a time frame that must be held to no matter what.

Any other binge readers out there?  How do you read several stories in a series?  I won’t give up falling into an author’s universe, but I will take the time to review each book right after reading in the future.  But like chocolate, I don’t think I can totally give up binge reading.  Nope, not gonna happen.

He’ll have to set aside his bear’s need to mark her until he’s eliminated the threat to her life.

She only wanted to find her brother. Finding a true mate definitely wasn’t part of the plan! 

Ruby didn’t care. She cared about nothing. Her brother was gone. Just like her parents were gone.

Bear shifter Nate Dean is the joker of team South-One. The prankster. The one without a dozen skeletons hidden in his closet. He is what he is, and that’s always been good enough, until now. Now he needs to be more. To step up and be the person his fated mate needs him to be. He knows he can be the man to heal Heather’s heart, to show her exactly how a woman should be treated and introduce her to a life filled with laughter. 

She needed time. Space. 

But he’s willing to wait forever, if that’s what it takes for her to realize he’s not going anywhere, that he’d never, ever hurt her. That they’re meant to be together. 

Heather Hastings is adjusting to life as a widow. A part of her feels guilty for not grieving her husband’s death, but after everything Toby put her through—the years of abuse, not to mention the endless lies—she can’t bring herself to miss him. In reality, the only thing thing she owes him is a huge thank you for bringing her to Heartsridge, somewhere she’d like to call home. She has real friends for the first time, her son is happy, and there’s a certain man who makes her toes curl and laughter break free from the void inside her chest. 

It’s second chance at life. A chance to make her own decisions and carve a place in the world. Though she’s only ever known the dark side of a man’s love before, Nate is a man carved from honor and integrity. His large, muscular body and sinful eyes have all kinds of naughty thoughts popping into her head, often at completely inappropriate times. If she can find a way to let go, take another chance on love, she could have the life she’s always dreamed of. But is she willing to risk her heart again? 

When a friend is put in jeopardy and harsh truths are uncovered, the real danger to the town is finally revealed. Heather has some tough decisions to make and Nate has to come to terms with reality: he can’t protect his mate from everything … though he’s willing to risk everything and try.

When Lainey Nickels hires a shifter mercenary to take on the job of rescuing her abducted brother Shane, she has no idea what she will encounter. It definitely isn’t the enigmatic Gideon Hunt. He certainly looks like he could take on a jungle full of kidnappers singlehandedly. But Shane is her brother; her responsibility. Lainey isn’t going to leave his fate in just anyone’s hands. And she brought her passport to prove it.

Gideon Hunt would rather work alone and he makes damn sure to remind Lainey of this fact every chance he gets. But his predatory stares and gruff demands don’t scare off Lainey. She’s annoyingly independent, but her bravery draws him in.  She accepts the man behind the brusque exterior and knows exactly who and what he is. To Lainey, he is one of the good guys. But Gideon knows better.

Stress and a need for comfort bring the two together in an explosion of passion, reawakening desires both had long forgotten. Neither expected their hearts to get involved.
