A viral Books Red River ~4.25~A new CC book is like Christmas morning for me. No spoilers (the discerning reader will see where the story is going almost immediately), but I can tell you this: Two Alphas: one shunned by his pack because the scar on his abdomen makes him imperfect and thus unworthy; the other waiting patiently for his mate to arrive. Steam & Romance (rough, sweet, and possessive)Slow Burn (if you wait a decade, what's another month?)HEA! (that epilogue ... serious feels, people; SERIOUS FEELS)There's so much Wesley doesn't understand, and there's so much Jobe can teach him. Angry and isolated, Wesley is soothed by Jobe's calm presence. He just doesn't SEE, not the way Jobe sees. The men connect on so many levels; they are confidantes and friends ... until Wes can't resist. Then there's the smell of oranges and cloves, and Wes is consumed by passion. That's the way it was meant to be. Beautiful, feel good story: shifters, mates, and MORE (just wait). The only thing I didn't like about this story is that it ended far too soon.P.S. Cover LOVE! The dark-haired man is so fucking hot, I'm staring. I'm staring hard.

  2. I don t think Cardeno s shifter books I are meant to be Other than Until Forever Comes which I compulsively listen to over and over again my reactions to those books have ranged from meh to well, that was nice enough Red River was at nice enough for most of the book, until we got to that ending I have one thing to say about the last part of the book It s not that I dislike or I m disgusted by that particular trope, I enjoy it for the most partI just don t enjoy DETAILS I do not want to know what [...]


  3. Cardeno C does shifters It s all feelings and mates and sexy times up in here, and I m LOVING it Cardeno C is probably my biggest hit or miss author for me I consider myself a HUGE fan of CC s work, but I think that CC has balls of steel sometimes for giving me all of these ARCs considering I m just as likely to 1 star them as 5 star them But this one I simply adored I m actually surprised that I enjoyed it as much as I did because this book is just filled with miscommunications and misunderstan [...]


  4. Alllllllrighty now This book was a serious case of It s not you, it s me This story just never really clicked for me, as 33 y.o Alpha shifter Wesley was essentially thrown to the wolves sorry, couldn t resist because he was different than the other superficial schmucks in the Purple Sky pack.Plus, the fact that Wesley s Uncle Paul, the 70 y.o pack Alpha, never straight up told Wesley that there was zero chance in hell of him ever becoming Alpha of the pack where he was born and raised, when he h [...]


  5. Red River is the second book in the Pack series, the first being Blue Mountain This book can be read as a standalone.There are so many ways I could spoil this story with a review Many of the revelations need to be experienced by the reader as the book progresses My suggestion is to read this before diving in too deep with reviews that contain spoilers, just in case This is a SPOILER FREE review.Wesley is an Alpha wolf shifter that doesn t have the support of his pack The current Alpha suggests a [...]


  6. Give it time33 years old Wesley has been waiting for something all his life To grow up To finish university and get a degree To not kill his uncle To watch his 70 years old uncle Paul stepping down from the leadership of the pack To finally lead the Purple Sky packOne phrase has been always repeated to him since he was 23 and became anxious Give it timePoor clueless Wesley nobody has informed him what he really is Nobody has told him that he is never going to lead the Purple Sky wolves Ever Poss [...]


  7. Shunned from his pack since he was born with a scar on his abdomen, Wesley has no choice but to join the mysterious Red River pack if he wants to put his alpha skills to good use He s pleasantly surprised that life there is extraordinary and only made better by his new mate Jobe There s a lot of assuming between these two and very little clarification, but I still love angsty insecurity and destined mates, so there s not much to complain about Throw in some mpreg with a very unconventional way o [...]


  8. I loved this book, although I think it was a bit too short I haven t read the first book yet, so this can be read as a afstand alone.It was sweet and sexy and there were some funny times Very enjoyable.I do however want to advice, not to read any spoilers, before starting this one Which is why my review will be short and without details.I went into this one blind, because my friends adviced me to, and I m so glad I did.Can t wait for book threeI guess it will be Ricky s book 4 stars from me beca [...]


  9. 4.5 StarsThis is a SPOILER FREE review.I FREAKING LOVE THIS STORY So much so that I stayed up an hour and a half past my bedtime because I couldn t put it down Totally worth it.Wesley Stone was born with a scar, so even though he is the logical successor to the Alpha of the Purple Sky pack as the only other Alpha wolf shifter, his pack doesn t accept him Even so, Wes is still shocked when his uncle, the current Alpha, informs him that he s bartered a trade with the Red River pack so that an Alph [...]


  10. I ve been waiting for the 2nd book in the Pack series in what seems like forever, after devouring Blue Mountain when it came out Also, this is a CC book need I say I m addicted So I snagged the ARC thank you, CC and after having just finished a very dark book, this was exactly what I needed marshmallowy fluffy, achingly sweet romance with hot boysecksing, precisely what CC does best.And we start out with the holy hot boysecks, Batman, when Wesley tries to drown his frustration in a pint or five [...]


  11. I popped my cherry with mpreg.It was weird and freaky I didn t expect Wesley to view spoiler get pregnant by absorbing Jobe s seed And then his skin becomes translucent and you can put your fingers through it to get the pup hide spoiler As Susan says Gimme Ass babies and c section all day Oh gawd, did I say that I didn t like Wesley being kept oblivious all his life His old pack had him thinking he was not good enough to be an Alpha And meanwhile everyone knew how special he was.I thought this q [...]


  12. BR with ElsJuts a warning this is an mpreg book Not something you would expect in your average Cardeno C book.I ve read a lot of mpreg and I love it most of the time This was not one of those times I m sorry, but Cardeno C does not know how to write good mpreg This was weird and just freaky You re not only an Alpha but you re also a Psi Your birthing skin absorbs my seed so a pup can grow inside you and then, when it s time, that same skin becomes translucent enough for the pup to come out Give [...]


  13. 3 StarsThere was some fairly interesting and original world building going on here I can honestly say I ve never read a shifter story quite like this one I m unashamedly a fan of mpreg stories in my MM shifter reads and although this one was definitely different to the norm if there can ever really be a norm when mpreg is involved I didn t find it as weird or disturbing as some reviews have made it out to be I think I just easily suspend all disbelief whenever mpreg is mentioned, and I simply ac [...]


  14. I liked this one better than the book 1 Yaayy view spoiler What I disliked The epilogue It just seemseasy I don t know It needs something I need But I guess it s okay, as long as it s not ass baby hide spoiler


  15. 3.5 starsHave you ever read listened to a book that should have everything going against it according to your typical tastesbut it still manages to win you over Enter Red River a book about shifters strike 1 , with a kind of clueless MC strike 2 , and some mpreg action strike 3.Three strikes you re out Not At All.In fact, I think this may be one of my favorite shifters books I ve allowed myself to read No sign of any borderline icky weird animal lovin I m HYPER sensitive about this in shifters b [...]


  16. What can I say It s Cardeno C and wolf shifters, so my chances of loving the story were high And I did love the story Mostly Also, leave it to Cardeno C to take me places I never thought I d go Red River is a bit of a slow burn of a story where one of the shifters involved doesn t actually know his purpose or his importance There were a lot of assumptions made, especially by Jobe, as to what Wesley understood, so that isn t exactly miscommunication, but it took them a little while to actually sp [...]


  17. 3.5 StarsI really like this series, but I still have a softer spot for the first one I think what got me was just a little too much miscommunication Well, not even that, lack of communication Jobe is a big ol hippie, which is awesome, I ve never read a shifter hippie before, much less an Alpha, and I love the way he speaks He s all metaphysical and wisely vague if that makes any sense , the only problem was, Wesley had no fucking clue what was going on Poor dude needed a schematic and a searchl [...]


  18. 5 Stars to Red River Another Happy Mating This is book two in The Pack Series the first was Blue Mountain I am very much a CC fan and there honestly has not been a book written by her that I have not loved this is just one in the I love this book pile, so hang on Cardeno C or CC writes some amazing shifter books I love her wolves, they are loyal, hot, and of course they love fiercely In this book we have two Alpha s, Wesley and Jobe Both of these men are ready to take on the lead role of Alpha [...]


  19. 3.5 hearts Audiobook reviewThis was one of those audiobooks where I think I would ve enjoyed it by reading I really loved the story and I ll touch on that later, but the narration was just average Not bad, but not the best I ve heard The narration didn t ruin this story for me, like bad narration sometimes can I could still connect to the characters and enjoy the story progression, but the narrator didn t become these characters, therefore I didn t always feel the emotion of certain situations [...]


  20. Oke this was my first book about shifters and packs and stuff.I have mixed feelings The writing was well And the story was oke, for the most part the story was good but at other parts a bit shallow Im not saying the whole book is shallow because there are deeper parts.Jobe was a great Alpha and Wes was held in the dark by his former pack and he has a sort of naive mind.His body knew better haha They were hot together.The story didnt get me the whole time.Im getting some recommendation by a frien [...]


  21. 4.5 stars I don t think you can really go wrong with a shifter book from Cardeno C I loved how Wesley was always a little in the dark when it came to shifter knowledge It was a good thing that he had Jobe to guide him and the hot and sexy times didn t hurt either I definitely want to read about Ricky and Brian


  22. grm The theme of this book was You Know Nothing Jon Snow , or in this case Wesley.I really liked Jobe, he was a darling, so sweet and devoted, but I also thought he was an idiot for never explaining a thing to his mate and for waiting 10 years for Wesley to wake up, when he knew that without a scent there was the possibility that the other man wolf hadn t understood they were fated mates Idk how he could check on his mate, hiding himself and probably knowing that the other wolf was sleeping with [...]


  23. 3.5 stars Like the first book in the series, this one was sweet and light as well I m a little surprised by how much I liked it given the amount of assumptions and miscommunication between the MCs As a reader, we figure out pretty quickly what the real deal between these two is but it takes some time for the MCs to get to that point It wasn t tedious or dramatic but it made me roll my eyes every now and then.Because I haven t read the blurb or any reviews, I was also surprised by one particular [...]


  24. Man, I ve been craving a good old fashioned shifter romance for a while now And what I mean by old fashioned Some world building don t get hung up on how solid it is people, they re shifters The whole fate brought us together, destined to be mates hoopla Speaking of matesHELLO MATING Smex with alpha males Please sir, can I havesome clears throat mpreg The holy fucking grail of shifter romance Delivered bythe master of fluff, Cardeno C Yes yes yes I m not high, I swear Just excited Short relativ [...]


  25. Whoa What the Huh What just happened Especially when I had been loving the warm fuzzy feeling Whaaaaa Damn, this fantasy surpasses even the lactating omegas I had read about in some other book view spoiler Birthing skin That stretches to give birth And then settles back I had initially thought that the scar meant Wesley must ve been given some special superpower as a gift just after he was born, or maybe that he had some special characteristic that would make him a special and unique Alpha But w [...]


  26. I m a bit lost about set a warning in here because after reading tons of M M material coffanfictioncof I know that this particular issue put off many people And Spoiler view spoiler after Harry Potter s fanfic explanations of magical wombs and potions, and c sections, though this was a new one, it was really weird and gross P hide spoiler I didn t read the first novel of the serie, but I think that can be read as stand alone.It s a short novel, but I think that the trope of misunderstanding that [...]


  27. Anther mpreg from CC It s cute and I liked how patient Jobe with Wesley all the time, while Wes was clueless about their mating and his pregnancy There s no overly dramatic moments about finding out he s pregnant But it s okay I m in a mood of no drama this week So, this book makes me happy


  28. DNF after the sample I utilized the Read a Sample feature on It was amazingly useful and saved me from purchasing this book Since this isn t fan fiction and doesn t come with tags, here s a tip If this was posted on AO3, you would find it under the MPreg tag.



  29. 2.5 Stars I really enjoyed the first book in this series It was a sweet, easy read This one was a little different.I had things figured out pretty quickly but all in all, I just felt some things lacking.Major spoilers below so read at your own risk view spoiler Contains heavy spoilers so don t read if you don t want to know In the prologue, we see Wesley with a ONS with another manhis first time Up until this point, he s been with only women but has been attracted to both I almost DNF right ther [...]
