Penelope Levinson, owner of the Sunshine Cafe, and wolf-dog shape-shifting firefighter cousins Kent & Tucker O'Mara and John & Jack Stephens have known all their lives they were destined to be together.  So why won't the mating ceremony work?  They've been trying since she turned twenty-five, and failure after failure is driving them apart.  Mating has become a chore, not a pleasure, and they are getting tired of people asking them when they are going to settle down, mate, and start a family.
They decide to give up on the ceremony if one last try doesn't work, but what does that mean for their relationship?  Without the ceremony, Penelope faces exhaustion trying to handle the demands of the four brothers.
And then there's Oliver McKay, the new doctor in town and a human.  Why does Penelope suddenly find herself attracted to him?  Does this mean it's time to give up on love with her wolves and move on?

Samantha Anderson is carrying out her grandmother's last wish and visiting the Northwest to learn about her family's heritage.
She's surprised by her immediate attraction to the five McAllister brothers: sexy big brother and pack alpha Gabe, hot carpenter twins Bart and Nick, and young and sweet fitness trainer twins Eddie and Andy. She's even more surprised when they all decide to pursue her.
What she doesn't know is that the wolf-dog shape-shifting brothers have recognized her as their mate and are determined to win her over so she'll agree to a formal mating ceremony which will tie her to them forever.
The only holdout is Gabe, who worries about mating with a human and wants to learn more about her before revealing their secret. To do this, he decides to spy on her in wolf-dog form. That's when he finds out that Samantha has a secret of her own.
Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book and the way it set up the series. It is a slow starter because you have to get past all the exposition in the first chapters. There is a lot of set up and backstory that needs to happen.

Samantha is a very interesting character, I lived her sassy attitude. She makes a great match for the five brothers.

That's right, there are five fellas in this book. It is a rather short read and giving each brother face time is daunting. While each was enjoyable, it was kind of like a party where you have to meet a lot of new people. After the first few you get a little tired. Perhaps, this might be crazy for me to say, five is too many. I think three is a nice number and doesn't have you reeling to include everyone.

I lived Gabe, I am a sucker for grouchy! He was easily my favorite brother and I was thrilled whenever he popped up in the book. The two sets of twins, while clearly defined, just seemed to blur together.

The steam was all sorts if delicious!!! There is a real mix of dynamics, one on one, threesomes and a big ole all hands in group action in the end. Throw in touches of BDSM and a gal needs to change her panties several times, better just to leave them off!

Ms Leyne has definitely caught my interest!! I can not wait to read more of the series. This book was a great starting point and gives you plenty to think about. Samantha makes a few gal pals and I am eager to see them get HEAs too! Just maybe with a few less guys to juggle.

Book 2 - Desired by Wolves (MFMM)
[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Paranormal Ménage a Quatre Romance, M/F/M/M, shape-shifters, light bondage, light spanking, HEA]
Veterinarian Lena Windsor grew up expecting to be mated to shape-shifter Alex James and his brothers, Joe and Will, when she finished university, but when military vet Alex leaves the three of them behind to re-enlist, she builds a new life for herself, eventually coming home to take over her fathers' practice in Harmony, where she reconciles with Joe and Will.
One day, Lena begins to suspect that someone has been prowling around her house while she's at work and uses a nanny cam to find the culprit. She's shocked to see a very changed Alex, who is dealing with a severe war injury by bonding, in wolf-dog form, with the stray dog she adopted who has a similar injury.
She'd never turn away an injured animal, not even when he's also the man who broke her heart. Can she help him to heal without falling in love with him again?
Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

Desired by Wolves (Call of the Wolf #2)
Desired by Wolves by Diane Leyne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow!! What a great story!! There was so much going on here and things were rather deep. I did not expect this series to get as serious. It was a really interesting turn.

I loved every minute of this book! Lena is a very strong and determined character, she had the strength to look past her hurt feeling in order to help Alex. It really took a lot for her to see his PTSD and work to heal him rather than wallow in her anger. Their journey was really touching.

Alex is so well written I really felt his pain and regrets. He was in a tough place and made a difficult choice. Joe and Will were definitely very smexy but Alex is the heart of the story.

While there is plenty of nice steam to warm a girl up, this book was more about the story and growth of the characters.

I can not wait to see what is next in this series!! Ms Leyne does a fabulous job of making her stories engaging and sexy all at the same time!! If you are a touch emotional, you should have tissues on stand-by!!
