Kayden
This one has to be one of the sweetest stories I've read in this series so far. Kayden is hell bent on revenge. When he can't get his hands on the guy who killed his parents, he takes the next best thing, his daughter. Bianca has lead a sheltered and isolated life. Her father says it's for her safety but she never suspected that he may have ulterior motive. Not until she meets Kayden who reveals the truth behind her cancer treatments and unmasks her father in the process

Simon
This story was an unusual one. A Pantera who actually wants to stay away from the Wildlands, who wants nothing to do with them. Unfortunately the leader of the Pantera has other plans and sends his best tracker after him. Tryst, revels in being Pantera, spending more time in her cat rather than her human form. Well, Simon is about to teacher her that she can enjoy life a lot more in human form. But Tryst is going to make him see that being Pantera is what he truly is inside.

Even though both these novellas are really short, the storyline is meaty and the chemistry between both sets of characters is explosive as ever.

*Disclaimer: I received an eARC of this book from INKSlinger PR and Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated in exchange for an honest review. This does not influence my opinion or rating of the book in any way.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. First of all, I've never before read this series (shame on me, I know), so I was a bit afraid that I'd be lost, that maybe I wouldn't understand the way the series works.

I am very happy that that was not the case. Yes, there are chunks of story that I'm missing, but I didn't feel that way while reading this book, I didn't feel like I was lost in an unknown place, which is a fantastic thing, especially for series this long.

The second thing that surprised me was the format. I felt that writing two stories into one book was a very unique idea, and also a very good one. It made the pacing be a little bit more smoother, more relaxed and yet fast paced. And because they're two stories into one, there's no need to drag the story to get to the page count that you need to get to, so the book is basically filled with scenes that need to be there, if that makes sense. Even with the two stories inside, I feel like the authors did a great job at creating the world and for making it as rich as it is.

Speaking of the two stories, I liked them. Kayden is a guy that has suffered a lot, especially since his parents disappeared when he was really young. I liked that even so, he didn't let that anger and that pain rule his judgement. I liked him, and I hope to read more about him in the next books. Bianca is a heroine that I enjoyed reading about. I liked that by the end of the story she finds courage to do certain things that I don't think in the past she would've done them.

Simon's story was my favorite one out of the two. Simon is a hero that hides stuff, and he hides them really well. I loved him, really. He's one of those characters that just need a bear hug, you know? I liked his interaction with Tryst, I liked seeing him trying to keep one step ahead of her. Tryst is a unique character. As the blurb says, she's more her animal than she is human, and I don't think I've ever read about a character like that before. It was interesting, but I would've wanted to read more on that subject. Maybe if the story was longer, we could've explored that side of Tryst more, but even so, I enjoyed reading the way she sees the world.

Like I said, I really enjoyed this book and I'll definitely be checking the other books in this series out. I may have (happily, I might add!) just found yet another paranormal series to fall in love with. ( )

I really enjoy both these authors. If you haven't yet tried their Bayou series you don't know what you are missing. I'm really loving these cats!

Kayden & Simon make books #21 & #22. Can you believe it. Where has the time gone since they first started this series? I'm going to do my best to break down the two stories.

Kayden
I felt for him. He was a man with a goal and nothing was going to stop him from doing what he wanted to do, or so he thought. I don't think he counted on Bianca and how she handled him. I love her, she's so funny.

Here she learns that Kayden is after her father and going to use her to get to him and how does she handle it...she helps someone else in need.

That's the kind of person she is. How could you not like her.

Simon
Both Simon and Tryst cracked me up. You will not meet two people who want to deal with each other less. Both work very hard at fighting their need for each other.

By the end of the story you really get to understand Simon and what his childhood was like. It makes his choices in life understandable.

Tryst is such a tunnel vision type of thinker. When the tunnel falls she's really not sure how to handle it. I don't think she's used to things not working out her way the first time. She made me a little mad at the end of their story but I got over it.

The story
Like I said above, I really enjoy this series. I wish I hadn't let myself get behind but I have. Someday I'm hoping to get caught up. Both of the stories are well-written and continue the main story line well. Even with behind a few, I wasn't lost at all.

Usually I have a favorite when I read stories with multiple stories in them, this time I don't. I liked both Kayden and Simon's story equally. Both a well worth reading. These a quick easy to read stories that are perfect when you are looking for something fast to read.
