Le Beau Brothers by V.A. Dold 


Amazon / Goodreads

Cade 

(Le Beau Brothers #1)

Anna James is single again, finally. In her opinion, men are self-centered and will never love her for who she is, a beautiful, plus sized woman. All except the fantasy man that she’s been meeting in her dreams for five years. 

She just never expected her fantasy to be a real live alpha shifter... 

Cade Le Beau isn't what he seems. He’s a billionaire wolf. A Shifter. He laments his missed chance six months ago to meet his fantasy woman in the flesh. Just as his second chance presents itself, his fantasy woman, his mate, is threatened by the local mob boss and her ex-husband. Now, he has forty eight hours to deal with this threat once and for all or chance losing her again. 

Is it Anna who’s in danger, or the humans who unwittingly threaten her? 

The heat is on the moment they lay eyes on each other. Neither, age, children, horrid ex-husbands, nor mob bosses will stop this love affair.


Review 4.5 Stars

Anna has had a lousy run of life, with her husband as a slimy cheating bastard she stayed with him for so long only because of her children. Now that their all grown up she's ready to finally start living and that begins with a move to New Orleans. For the last 5 years through the tough times of her marriage the only time she was at peace was in the arms of her dream man. Every night she saw him and fell harder and harder for him, so when she sees him in New Orleans she knows things are about to change for her forever.

Cade thought he lost his chance at his mate 6 months ago when he saw her and didn't go up to her before she disappeared, now that he sees her again he won't let the chance of being with the woman of his dreams in real life pass him by. But he's got allot of secrets and he's worried she won't accept him for who and what he is.

With her slimy ex trying to weasel his way back into her life they both have to learn to trust each other. Will they find their happiness in their other halves?

Anna had a crummy go of thing, but learned to make the best of what she had. She was dragged down by men about her self image and doesn't see herself as Cade does.

Cade is a sweetie and a total Alpha male. He sees what he wants and goes after it. He wants something done and it is.

The two a halves of a whole and you see in the way they are together how perfect for each other they are. I loved the introduction in this story of the characters and the shifter world. You are never left wondering whats going on or what powers they have because it's all explained and it made for a great read. Definitely enjoyed this story and will be reading the others to come.

Simon

(Le Beau Brothers #2)

NOTE: Complete novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. Rated 18+ for language and strong sexual content. This is an adult paranormal romance with erotic content. The series centers on Billionaire Wolf Shifters with plus sized BBW for mates. It also includes vampires, voodoo priestess, a Marine, and magic. These are stand alone books that create a series. They do not need to be read in order.

Four years of honorably serving his country has left Simon, Cade’s younger brother, damaged and trapped in wolf form. Little did he know the only person with the ability to heal him completely would be found at home. Literally. Now that he’s found her, he is desperate to claim her.

Rose is a beautiful, voluptuous woman with limited experience with men. Although she's confident, she still has reservations. Never having a family of her own, her fear of abandonment has her fleeing romantic relationships, and doubting herself.

Travis is insane. A deadly loose cannon that a secret organization hired to destroy the Le Beau family by denying them their mates. Permanently.

Simon’s dream will be lost forever unless he is able to maintain human form.
Rose needs unconditional love and a mate to create the family she’s always wanted.
Travis’s all-consuming drive is to take Rose for himself.
Will Simon ever be whole again, able to claim his mate, giving Rose the love and family she so desperately craves? Or will Travis destroy them both?


Review 4.5 Stars

Simon is lost within himself, after four years in the military he's lost a bit of who he used to be. Touch, it's not just important to shifters, it keeps them sane and Simon went without it so often while stationed overseas that now back at home he is lost within his wolf form most of the time. Anna his brothers mate comes into the picture and with her healing power he's back on track to getting himself to was he was faster than ever, until Rose comes for Thanksgiving.

Rose is Annas best friend and finally has a chance to visit her, but when she gets there it's Simon who holds her attention. With her past being the dark part of her that it is she has a hard time trusting men, especially one as handsome as Simon.

As they get to know each other will they be able to overcome their pasts or will it keep them from trusting in each other for the possibility of a future? With that working against them you'd think they have enough challenges, but add in a crazy shifter into the mix and there's even more for them to deal with before they can find happiness.

Rose is hardheaded, but she's strong and determined. She does what she need to do to keep herself safe, but it keeps her closed off to the possibility of love.

Simon made a choice to serve in the military, and it nearly cost him his sanity. Now he's doing everything he can to get himself back to the way he was. He's dominate at times but knows when to just let things be.

These two had quite the journey between the mix of problems between them, but I loved watching as they came together and opened up to each other and healed each other. It was great seeing more of the characters from book one of this series, and more of this world. It was also fun seeing who would get their story next!
