Dead Eye (Tiger’s Eye, #1) by Alyssa Day

Dead Eye (Tiger's Eye Mystery, #1)Dead Eye by Alyssa Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For Jack Shepherd, tiger shape-shifter and former soldier, life is heading for a dead end. Dead End, Florida, to be exact. When he learns that he inherited a combination pawn shop/private investigation agency from his favorite uncle, Jack’s first job is to solve his uncle’s murder. Because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.



I loved it. Absolutely loved it. I had no idea it was a spinoff from her Warriors of Poseidon series, but that just made it even better.

We know (and love) Jack from the Poseidon series, but Tess was new to me. She is not a shifter, but she has her own paranormal ability, although in her case it is more of a curse. If she touches someone, she can see how they die. Obviously, that limits her human contact.

There are murders, both past and present. Black magic and human evil.

And Fluffy . . . a stuffed alligator.

The book has a solid ending, but there is plenty of room for additional books. I cannot wait.

I have not read Alyssa Day’s Cardinal Witches series, but I understand that one of the characters shows up in this book as well, giving us a link between three series. And on that note, I am going to download this new-to-me series and start reading.

Bearing It All (Highlander's Beloved, #3)Bearing It All by Vonnie Davis
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Title: Bearing It All
Author: Vonnie Davis
Series: Highlander’s Beloved, #3
Pages: 297
Publisher: Loveswept
Date: October 27, 2015


In the pine-dense mountains of the Scottish Highlands, shape-shifter Ronan Matheson is running free when a desperate woman parachutes out of the sky, directly onto his furry, powerful chest. Instead of clawing her to death, Ronan’s inner bear longs to keep her safe. Once he’s back in human form, Ronan is amused by the mysterious beauty’s fearless attitude—and tempted by her expertly toned physique. But what could she possibly be doing in this isolated stretch of the Highlands?

French intelligence agent Anisa Brosseau never imagined she’d be on the CIA’s bad side—until she’s framed for treason and forced to flee in a stolen drone. Hiding out in a remote cabin, Anisa just needs some time to clear her name. What she doesn’t need is a brooding, muscle-bound Scot in a skimpy kilt to drive her crazy with lust. But when Anisa’s enemies come knocking on his door, Ronan calls on a secret weapon to protect his turf and the bonny lass he’s come to love.


I read this book almost two months ago and waited until almost the publication date to review it. Now I remember why? I couldn’t get past the “are you kidding me?” moments in the book.

Anisa parachutes into the mountains of the Scottish Highlands and just happens to land on a bear . . . a shape-shifting bear . . . who just happens to be her mate.


Oddly enough, I can accept that. Shape-shifting bears – check. After all, I read about (and love) shape-shifter books all the time. He’s her mate – check. Of course, why else would we have the book?

What I could not get past is the fact they already knew each other from just a few years before . . . and neither one recognized the other! They met in Paris, as adults, and although they didn’t date, they did have several conversations . . . and neither one RECOGNIZED the other!

This is the third book in the series and if you’ve read the others, go ahead and read this one. It had its fun moments. I just couldn’t get past the “really?” parts enough to enjoy it.

This book was sent to me by NetGalley in return for an honest review.
