    My Thoughts 4 out of 5 Unicorns I really liked it I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me Yes I got a review copy of this book but no one tells me what to think feel or write about any bookThe cover is awesome I love when both forms are on the coverThis is my first time reading Patricia’s work and it is also the first book in a new series This book is for adults only due to the violence and adult topics This book does have gambling and betting on illegal animal fights for any who may be sensitive to these topicsThis is a very uniue shifter world I have never read anything uite like this where shifters are demon like and their purpose is to corrupt humanity Luc is half human and half Kindred This has caused him to feel like he doesn’t belong in either world and is torn between the two He knows that the people he cares about will always be targets Skye can uniue abilities and her world is turned upside down She learns new things about herself and her family along the way Skye and Luc come from opposite worlds and they are testedI enjoyed this uniue story and perspective and I want to see where this world goes next I hope I get to see of Skye and LucI recommend to shifter fans who like uniue and completely different worlds and who do not get hung up on what good and evil is

    I can't even with this bookBook source NetGalleyDNF 42%Luc Lazare is half human and half something else I don’t know what because I gave up at 42% Skye Cross is also something but at least she conveniently finds her mother’s old Book of Powers right when she needs it to explain what’s going on with the wonky things she can do And it’s a good thing she reads that book out loud to her brother’s ghost so Luc an listen outside an open window and hear what she is since he keeps asking her every time they meet and she doesn’t answer him At 42% I had to toss in the towel The characters are one dimensional and stupid There are SECRETS galore with no reveal in sight It’s confusing as shit the dialogue is stilted and the pacing is herky jerky It’s stagnant The plot what little there is of one is just stuck in uick sand and sinking fast Also who calls cops coppers in a book set in what I can only guess is modern times? Skye calls her brother and his fellow officers coppers up until I had to stop reading or gouge my eyes out with a spork Wtf? This is an interesting world that got really shortchanged The writing sucks The end

    I love paranormal romances and Animal Instincts seemed right up my alley I love shapeshifter novels there's just something so delicious about an alpha born hero with true animal instincts but lord did I want to shoot Luc; and please let’s not get started on the female When Skye stumbles into an animal battle arena her first reaction is to run in there and stop it all from happening That is until her twin brother shows up and warns her to stay away She's not about to stand on the side while animals are being pitted against each other and forced to fight to the death But the animals she runs into aren't just dogs they are wild animals predators Skye and her twin Shade were born with an ability that allowed them to read people and animals She can communicate with animals telepathically while he can read people's thoughts When Skye encounters the wild dog she suddenly begins to hear him She's baffled but ultimately her goal is to help the animal who's been wounded This is where she runs into Luc and where their encounter leads them both to something much than a simple animal fightNow while the story itself is interesting with its shifters and witches thrown together the reason I cannot rate this book higher is because of the romance in the book If we can call it that I believe in insta lust but I will always want to pull my damn hair out when there’s instalove in my romance While Luc and Skye took their time getting down and dirty with one another all the heated glances and thoughts along the lines of “I know you aren’t like that at all” wouldn’t have been terrible had the characters gotten to know each other first Plus Luc screamed psychostalker all the way There were moments where Skye would make decisions that prompted me to label her a TSTL female and it just didn’t seem natural for her to have developed her abilities as a witch just out of the blue when it was most convenient for her despite not knowing previously about her ancestry I was bored most of the time I spent reading the book and that’s a damn shame It seems so promising and yet I just wasn’t uite hooked as I’d expected to be or falling all over the hero at all It’s possible it was just me at the time of reading but if you’d like to give it a shot I would love to know if anyone else has read it and what their thoughts on it were Maybe I’m looking at it all wrong

    DNF 25% 122018Skye's gift allows her to communicate with animals through pictures But suddenly she can now hear the thoughts of humans and she doesn't know why Skye's brother Shade is investigating a string of murders and he may be on to what is really going on at the casino The Ark which has a secret underground area that's invitation only Luc is head of security at The Ark and he wants to know why Skye keeps showing up at places she doesn't belongThat's about as far as I got before having to give up on this read I was particularly  bothered by the fact that Skye's point of view is written in first person and everyone else Luc Shade Bad Guy etc were all written in third person This structure just didn't mesh for me and every time the POV would change it would jar me out of the storyI also had a lot of issues with the writing in particular the dialogue which felt stilted or odd with strange word choices like Skye saying copper when referring to her brother a cop Luc also asks Skye what are you? about 10 times in just the first 20% and it was often several times right after each other Neither Skye nor Luc seem very good at keeping their secrets Skye pretty much admits that the injured dog in the beginning is communicating with her and The Ark appears to revel in hiding their shapeshifting abilities in plain sight The last thing that bothered me was Skye's attitude and mannerisms which came across very young and immature I'm not sure what age Skye is supposed to be but she often sounded like a 16 year old not getting her way I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book provided by Netgalley All thoughts expressed in this review are my honest opinion

    This book was an easy read that I finished in a few hours The plot is straightforward but I had to pretend a lot of things were different for that to be the caseOverall the writing and dialog was a bit stilted and often repetitive At one point the hero asks the heroine the same uestion 3 5 times in one convo and then a few times the next time they meet The word choices were often very odd as well Ie unless this book stars Bonnie and Clyde cops should not be referred to as coppers Skye the heroine was a bit daft throughout the book and Luc the hero was so indecisive Mostly though the magic in this world does not fully make sense to me Magic is not known to the people of the world but those with powers were pretty cavalier about letting their otherness show in front of normal humans or letting those in the know tell others about their existence with no conseuences There are weres but not your typical ones Instead they are immortals who took over animal bodies and live off the souls of humans There are witches as well although that just turned out to be a convenient excuse for the heroines 1 ability her ability to communicate with animals via emotions and images Also at one point she gets a nasty wound to her arm which starts healing on its own This doesn't seem to be something that has happened to her before but it is not explained nor is the heroine freaked out at all about it The book has potential but reuires a bit of editingrewriting It also definitely ends with plot openings for other characters to have their own books but I don't plan on continuing with this series Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Skye could communicate with animals and usually saw images of their thoughts her twin brother Shade could hear people’s thoughts and was a cop Shade was the other half to Skye’s souls Skye worked with animal rescue as she also had a psychic connection with animals as well as her twinBut now a man Skye and she could hear his thoughts skye had been looking for a wounded coyote and seen a lion a wolf and a hyena and he told them to leave and they did Then Shade appeared and and asked what Skye was doing with this man before her Skye could feel the mutual dislike between the two men Shade knew than he was letting on Then shade was blocking what he was letting Skye see Luc was then man by Skye and she heard him when he thought “ what are you” Luc’s father had won the permit to build the first casino boat in Chicago though the permit for The Ark as it was called had not included the several lower decks clocked by his father’s magic where only the invited got to play The year before when the first complex on the lower decks had opened Luc had taken the job of head of security to make his dad happy Luc had recognized Ske as Shade’s sister from the physical similarities she shared with Shade Yet he couldn’t control her Luc wanted to know Skye better and he didn’t like being thwarted Luc was used to having control especially over humans but for some reason not Skye Luc couldn’t get her off his mind Shade then died in the line of duty with a bullet through his skulland had saved Luc’s mother Elizabeth Even his partner didn’t know he was looking into murders that may be linked to the casino Then Luke’s ghost appeared to Skye in his apartment which apparently his ghost couldn’t leave Shade figures he has unfinished business here and that is was the case he was working on he won’t be able to move on until that is solved Skye finds her mother’s old Book Of Powers and it explains what is going on and all the odd things Skye can do Skye reads the book to Shade’s ghost and Luc was by an outside window and heard what Skye actually is and what have to ask her what she was any Luc is a shifter who was half human he had not embraced either side of himself His human mother raised him Luc pushed Skye away thinking it would keep her safe I did definitely enjoy this book it's definitely a different twist on shifters Some of the word choices were off like using coppers for a cop There was some replication in the dialogue like Luc asking “ what are you” it got boring This made me choke up at times Luc and Skye had some hot chemistry between them The supernaturals didn’t seem to really care if their secrets got out and people became aware of what they were I liked the tension between Luc and Skye My interest was caught in the beginning and stayed through to the end I also liked the plot and the fast pace I liked the drama bit loved the character and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend

    I received an AEC of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest reviewLuc is part wolf part human He has never made the commitment to choose which side he was to embrace much to his father's dismaySky works with Animal rescue There have been a series of dog fights in the area and she is at the latest to try and help the animals they recover Her brother a detective is there also and is angry at her for being in a dangerous situation Hmm seems he knows something she doesn't?This is where she meets Luc who is evasive with answers and not very nice to her as she is attempting to help a coyote that was injured during the fight A coyote at a dogfight? Sky sees several other types of animals that night raising even uestionLuc does not stay out of her life though She finds him watching her following her Then Sky's brother is killed when he goes to ask Luc's mother uestions he is killed saving her life Now Luc feels he HAS to protect SkyWill Sky figure it all out? Will the truth about Luc scare her away? Will finding out who killed her brother also kill her?I had mixed feelings about this book It had a definite twist on the shifter life because when the shifter became of age the could commit and become Kindred but this reuired giving up their soul It also made them immortal but they would have to borrow a soul basically using it until the soul was useless as in too old? or about to die? It was a bit strange for meSky has her own powers She can communicate with animals while her brother had another but she never really understood what the purpose of her power was until after her brother's death Between her new understanding of her power and Luc's world Sky's life has really changedShe cares about Luc as he does her but he thinks if he pushes her away it will keep her safe Can they ever be together?Luc's sister Nualaher story really broke my heart I would of loved to see her with a HEA

    I read a few books in The McKenna Legacy series when I was younger and fell in love not just with the characters and family but with the way Patricia Rosemoor writes So when I was offered the chance to read an early copy of Animal Instincts the first book in Patricia's new Kindred series I jumped at the chance without even bothering to read the blurbLet me tell you this book it'll rip your heart out shatter it completely and slowly repair the cracks throughout the storyThere's drama mystery thrills chills and romance Animal Instincts features Skye Cross a woman who can communicate with animals and Luc Lazare a man who can turn into one a panther to be preciseThe chemistry between Skye and Luc sizzles and snaps from their very first meeting and their romance is sweet to watch but it's the mystery and uncovering secrets and truths that will keep you turning page after page just as I didThis is definitely a book that I would highly recommend to paranormal romance readers and it's definitely a book that I will be re reading again and againI'm already looking forward to reading the next book in the seriesI received an early copy of this book from Tule Publishing via Netgalley Bingeworthy Book Blog On Facebook On Twitter On Instagram

    Reviewed at Keeper BookshelfAnimal Instincts was originally published in November 2013 so it’s possible that you’ve read this title I hesitated on reuesting this title from NetGalley Tule is a publishing house that I usually adore and trust but I should have listened to those rumblings in my head that said no this one probably isn’t for you Let me mention that Shifter Romance is my favorite genre and any title in this sub genre of Paranormal Romance has a lot to live up to for meWhile the idea of Animal Instincts is an interesting premise the story fell far short for me There are a few reasons for that First I could not connect or like either Skye or Luc Individually or as a couple they simply did not work for me I couldn’t see the spark between them and they both are exceptionally annoying at times The second reasons is being jarred out of the story so often when POVs were changed Combining first person and third person will always take me out of the world the author is creating while I adjust I wish I could have enjoyed this one as I have many other stories by this author But unfortunately Animal Instincts was not for me That’s not to say that you wouldn’t love it we all have different reading tastes It simply didn’t work for meI received an e ARC of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley That does not change what I think of this story It is my choice to leave a review giving my personal opinion about this book

T was pounding my blood racing Knowing they could sense my fear I tried to control it Futile No escape The hyena broke from the pack and rushed me If I turned my back on it I was dead for sure I kept putting one foot behind the other and the wolf and the lion picked up their pursuit The hyena’s muscles bunched and it flew through the air at me I threw up my hands to protect myself but it never reached me Instead it was as if an invisible wall stopped it cold It shrieked and fell to the ground in a heap What do you think you’re doing Go The predators stopped and I sensed their sudden fear Now the voice in my head thundered The animals fled and uickly disappeared into the night I flipped around At first I didn’t see him Then I caught a movement to my right and nailed him where he stood Dark hair whipped around features so rugged they could have.
