My Fiction Nook
CC never disappoints in the feels, romance, and smex departments. Blue Mountain is equal parts tender and steamy. The slow-burn made the inevitable coming together all the hotter, and the dynamics between the two men were very believable.
MM Good Book Reviews
This is a must read for anyone that likes paranormal romance and shifter stories, especially if you are looking for something different at the core of the story.
