Fantastic Series

In the first book DAMNATION Jessica and her sister Janna, wolf shifters, are drawn by destiny towards The Twin Moon Ranch, it belongs to a pack of wolves run the by Alpha Ty Hawthorn and his family (A great series by the way which starts with Desert Moon) after their whole pack was murdered by the Blue Blood rogue wolves. Twin Moon Pack take them in and arrange for them both to have jobs and a place to stay at The Blue Moon Saloon. There is only one problem with this as far as Jessica is concerned the saloon is run by two brothers, bear shifters, Simon and Sorin Voss. Simon being the bear shifter who deserted Jessica years ago leaving her with a broken heart.

Both the Voss brothers are here at Blue Moon Saloon because the same group of rogues murdered their family and burnt their village killing everyone but them, Sorin's mate was also killed. So the stage is set, each of these four lost souls are trying to make new lives in new surroundings after suffering devastating losses.

At first, the atmosphere between Jessica and Simon is very tense but eventually, they begin to connect again and the true reason why Simon gave Jessica up comes to light. The story is both moving and exciting and has lots of action. The descriptive writing of Anna Lowe really brought the area to life for me. I could close my eyes and see the colors of the desert! Unfortunately, they not only have to work at their relationship they still have the Blue Bloods to contend with as they have found them again.

In the second book TEMPTATION, we have the story of Janna, her story involves a human Cole Harper, he came to their aid in the first book and was infected by the werewolf blood and is now turning into a wolf. He and Janna were drawn to each other from the start, in fact, the reason he was in the Blue Moon when he was injured was to see Janna.

Cole begins to think he is going mad when strange things are happening in his head and his abilities seem to be changing, he can hear so much better, for one thing, smell much better for another. He has no idea what is happening he thinks he is going mad. Meanwhile, Janna knows he is her mate and tries to help him adjust and survive the Change, which is not always possible it will take a very special human to do this.

The Blue Bloods make another appearance to complicate matters and nothing can be taken for granted.

In the third book REDEMPTION, we have Sorin and Sarah's story. Sorin didn't only lose his family when The Blue Bloods attacked he lost Sarah, the human, who was his Destined Mate.

Now many months later, having watched as his brother and the girls find happiness Sorin gets his second chance at love and happiness when Sarah gets off the bus just outside the Blue Moon, she's thin, she's frightened, she has scars after trying to save her parents from the fire which killed them. Sorin is both shocked and elated to see her alive but then he notices something which could change everything - Sarah is pregnant and there is no way the baby could be his!

I really felt for Sorin his elation at seeing Sarah alive, his hurt at the thought of his mate choosing another man over him, his need to help her and the baby whilst trying to remain strong, for himself and his clan/pack. Over time we find out what happened in Montana. We watch as Sarah and Sorin build new bonds as she is welcomed into their little community, working in the cafe run by Janna and Jessica (Damnation and Temptation) and helping Sorin too.

But their peaceful life is threatened again, by The Blue Bloods lead by Victor White. I was on the edge of my seat as both Sarah and Sorin fight for their very lives and their future. I would love to tell you more but that would be one spoiler too many so what I will say is you definitely need to listen to this book - the characters, the descriptive writing style and the wonderful narration by the super talented Kelsey Osborne cannot be bettered.

I was given this audiobook collection as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Great Series

I love stories that have romance and humor all rolled up in one. All her books display both. I’ll continue to read/listen to her books.

Blue Moon Saloon

All the stories in the Blue Moon Saloon series were enjoyable and the characters were fun to get to know. Each kind of quirky in their own way. It's great for fans of shifter romances!

Damnation
Second chances at happily ever after. With a past better left in the past, Jessica Macks finds herself faced with a past she rather forget, Simon Voss. A wolf and a bear will never work out.

Temptation
Love is blossoming but when it is with a human...Janna Macks is a wolf shifter who finds herself falling for sexy cowboy Cole Harper. But what happens when the unexpected occurs, Jenna wolf is crying out that Cole is her mate.

Redemption
The story of Soren Voss, burly alpha bear shifter, and Sarah Boone. Soren thought he lost Sarah forever, but when he finds her lost in his bar, she doesn't know what to think. Pregnant and on the run, Sarah is faced with confronting the love of her life, with one caveat...she has a secret of her own.

The voice character is good and the stories flow quite well together, even when you have to stop and start due to commuting. The characters come to life in each book. As always, it is nice to see the character from the other stories as well and find out how they too develop over time.

I voluntarily reviewed Blue Moon Saloon 3 Book Collection as a gifted copy from the author.

Love it

These are 3 independent books but they build on each other. If you enjoy paranormal romance that is steamy then this is the series for you.

Awesome series!

This review will be broken down by each of the three books in the series.

Damnation - Jessica and Simon’s Story
Jessica and Jannah were on the run from rogue shifters who killed their family. They end up at the Blue Moon Saloon where they find jobs and fit in quite nicely. Turns out Jessica has history with the bartender, Simon Voss as they were involved before the rogue shifter attacked their families. During their time apart, they stayed true to each other. Once they get together, they make such a cute couple and a can’t keep their hands or eyes off of each other. The rogue shifters try their nonsense again and Cole, who is human, gets scratched trying to defend Jannah. No one, except Cole, knows anything about it until the next book.

Temptation – Cole and Jannah’s Story
All it took was a single scratch from a rogue wolf to change Cole’s life forever. This book was suspenseful in that you didn’t know what would happen to him and Jannah. I was hoping Victor, the rogue wolf and his band of bandits who stands for purity, would get theirs. This is another book where humans could take a lesson. Cole did a great job fighting the rogues by himself (with some help from Jannah). The other supporting characters in both books were great!

I really enjoyed the segue to the next book. I can’t wait to find out how Soren handles the news of his mate’s condition.

Redemption - Soren and Sarah's Story
Soren and Sarah's story was unique in that Soren thought Sarah was killed, along with his family, in a vicious fire set by Victor and his band of rogues. Sarah, Soren's true love, returned after being on the run, with a secret. Usually it is the woman who has to deal with such things so I am glad that in the end, Soren had to deal with and accept it. Soren was able to put his pride behind him and admit to the love he has always had for Sarah. This book contains loaded with suspense fight scenes that leaves you rooting for Sarah the entire time as well as hoping that Soren will return in time to save her from the evil Victor and his band of rogues. As usual, Ms. Lowe delivered a really great book. It fits right in with the previous two books in this series. This book is no different in that I want to know what happens to these people/shifters long after the book is over.

I highly recommend this series! These books were so good that the time passed really fast! I was at the end of the series before I knew it.

Kelsey Osborne did a great job with the narration.

I listened to some of these for the second time

I have listened to the first two books before, and read all three of them, but when the author offered me the chance to hear them all together I could not resist. I would recommend anything Anna writes, and Kelsey is a fantastic narrator.

Damnation

I have been saving this series because I knew I wouldn't want to read just one at a time.

Jess cannot believe her eyes when she walks into the bar where she is going to be a waitress and sees Simon. Of all the gin joints. She had loved Simon she is was a teenager, and he had left her high and dry. How the he** was she supposed to work for him and his brother Soren without wanting to kill him? Since he was a bear shifter and she was just a wolf shifter, that whole killing thing was not going to happen.

Simon cannot believe Jess is here. He thought she had been killed when her pack and his clan were wiped out by purist wolves. He knew she now hated him, but she didn't know why he had shunned her in the past. It was all a pack/clan thing that had not gone the way they had hoped. The two alphas had agreed that a mating should take place, but his brother Soren had been the intended make in the agreement. He hadn't been able to bring himself to tell Jess that all those years ago.

So, what a mess. How will these two manage to live and work in the same place with all the past hurt and lies? Can Simon get Jess to forgive him? Can Jess's wolf convince her that the past is the past and Simon is still her mate if she will give it a chance? And what about the purist wolves that killed the rest of their pack, are they still looking for the two that escaped?

You will fall in love with the brothers, and the sisters. Just buy the whole series now.

Temptation

I loved this second installment of the Blue Moon Saloon series.

Cole is a human cowboy that was scratched by a wolf during a bar fight. He does not understand why there seems to be a voice inside his head that is urging him to claim Janna as his "mate". Janna is a waitress at the local bar and is a wolf shifter. She has always liked Cole, but lately her wolf keeps calling him her mate. That seems strange since she didn't feel the whole "fated mate" vibe when she first started seeing him. What changed?

This is a little different spin from a lot of wolf-human stories where the woman is usually the human half of the story. We learn a little about Cole's past and what brought him to live in seclusion and work a menial job at a stable. The purist wolves will also make another appearance and bring the whole Cole/Janna thing to a climax.

Redemption
I loved the story of Soren and Sarah. This book starts where Temptation left off,

Soren thinks Sarah died when his bear clan was attacked by purists. Her family's cabin was destroyed and she was never found. Sarah had been hiding from the people that destroyed her town. She wanders into a new town and can't believe her eyes when she sees Soren. Unfortunately, she has a little problem that is hard to hide and she doesn't know how to explain it to Soren. Soren, on the other hand, has a act of his own. Sarah had no idea he is a bear shifter or why he was forced to leave her years ago. Well these two be able to forgive their pasts and embrace their future? And what will happen when the purists come to call?

Blue Moon Saloon

This books set has the first three books in this series and I have to tell you, once you listen to this you will be begging for more. I absolutely loved the couples in this series and how love can truly conquer anything that is thrown at them.
Narration is amazing! All the emotions and characters this series has and yet Kelsey can make them all just different enough to know who is talking.

A must binge listen

This was a great bundle. I loved all 3 stories, which involve around 2 different sibling pairs. It was fun, exciting, steamy & edge of your seat all rolled in to one. So glad that i purchased this bundle. Now, I just need the rest of the stories in this series.

Really enjoy this series! Narrator does a good job

I've already read all three of these books, but was still super excited to see them together in audio! And for 1 credit! I like the narrator, but she can be a little too exuberant. There's times when her voice could express emotion better, but overall, I liked the narration.

I really enjoyed all 3 books! Books 1 and 2; I'd go with 5 stars and Book 3 - 4 stars. Each book deals with a different couple, but it's in the same location, so the characters from all the books know each other. Love all the shifter goodness!! I'll post the reviews I wrote for each of the individual books from when I originally read the books below:

Damnation:

Loved this! Second chance romance with shifters, I'm all on board for that! Jessica and her sister, Janna, are starting new at the Blue Moon Saloon after their whole pack was wiped out by Rogue shifters. They are wolf shifters, and Jessica is very thankful to have found a place at the Blue Moon, but when she finds out her new boss is a past lover, she isn't too happy, but there isn't anywhere else for her and her sister to go, so Jessica is going to have to just deal with it. Jessica was deeply hurt by Simon when he broke things off with her without much explanation, and finds it difficult to be in his presence; especially since her wolf wants her mate, and Jessica is still affected by being near Simon. Simon is a bear shifter, and he can't believe it when Jessica walks into the Saloon; his bear growls mate and wants to make her his, but Simon hurt Jessica when he broke it off, so his bear is just going to have to wait. I love that there is POV's from both Jessica and Simon! Jessica is a strong and intelligent woman, and I really felt for her, when she lost her pack and when Simon turned her away. The romance is so sweet and wonderful, and Simon was adorable! I love that he rubs up on stuff! I know that sounds a bit weird, but it's a shifter story, so I think it fits. I love that he is a bit of a gruff bear, but his soft side comes out with Jessica. I also like that we get some action scenes, and I really enjoyed the writing! I also loved all the side characters, and I am super excited to read each of their books! This is a great shifter read, and I'm definitely looking forward to more from Anna Lowe!!

Temptation -

I'm really loving this series! In this book, we get Janna's story, who is Jessica's sister from the first book, and we get to see how Janna and Cole's story unfolds. You should read the first book in this series, or there will be some spoilers in this book for that book, and Janna and Cole are introduced in the first book, but I suppose it isn't completely necessary, but I think it adds to the enjoyment of this book; plus that book is awesome too! Janna and her sister have found a new home at the Blue Moon Saloon with the 2 were-bears, Simon and Soren, and Janna is feeling a strong attraction towards a regular at the Saloon. Cole is a sexy cowboy with something in his past that is eating away at him, and on top of that, he is starting to feel and hear strange things, and his feelings for Janna have turned animalistic. Janna's wolf is also feeling animalistic towards Cole, but she doesn't understand it because Cole is human, and on top of her wolf acting weird, there is the threat of the Rogues. The Rogues don't believe in mixing shifters, and they definitely don't want shifters and humans mixing. First off, I enjoyed the chemistry between Cole and Janna, and I found Cole to be adorable. I like Janna too, but I definitely think she should have made it more of a priority to talk with Cole; that made me think of her as a bit more ditzy then I had thought previously, so I was a bit disappointed in that, but for the most part, I liked her. The story is interesting, and I liked the flow of the story. I'm excited to read the next book in the series, even if I don't really like the premise; I wanted more for Soren, so I'm disappointed with what I know so far, but since I loved the first 2 books and enjoy Anna Lowe's writing, I'm giving it a chance. Plus, I'm very interested in Soren! Looking forward to more of him, and more of the main couples from books 1 and 2!

Redemption -

I love Anna Lowe's writing, and I like how she tells a story. I love shifters, and I love that Anna Lowe's book have a bit of action in them. The romances are sweet and I like the suspense of the crazed group who is killing those that try to mix shifter races or shifters with humans. This book can be read as a standalone, but characters from the previous books are present in this one, so there are some spoilers for the previous books. In Redemption, we get dual POV's from Soren and Sarah, Soren believed that his mate, Sarah, was killed in a fire, but when she shows up alive, he is really surprised and happy, but that is short lived when he sees that she is pregnant and he knows it isn't his. Can Soren forgive his mate? Can he protect her from the shifter purity group? When I read the synopsis for this one, I wasn't overjoyed about her being pregnant because I don't really like that type of storyline, and I wasn't completely happy with her story of how she became pregnant; it didn't really make me feel anymore favorable towards her, but I still really enjoyed the rest of the story, and I did like Soren and Sarah's backstory. There aren't flashback scenes, but through Soren and Sarah's memories, we get brief glimpses of how their relationship was prior, and they are rather sweet with each other. Sarah also has some kick butt moments that are awesome, and I love Soren. I also like seeing the other couples from the previous books, and I would love more of them! So, although this wasn't my favorite in the series, I still really enjoyed it, and am definitely looking forward to more!
