What Kind Of Review Can You Expect?
If I could describe what kind of reader I am, I would hands down say I was an emotional one. When I read I want to fully experience the book, from the emotions coursing through the characters to reacting to the twist and turns of the storyline. I'm looking for those books that fire up my imagination and leave me breathless when it's over. It's for this reason why the reviews I write aren't so much what I think and are more on how I feel. My hopes in sharing my review in this way is that something will spark an interest and have you wanting to have the same experiences. This isn't to say I don't have issues with grammar, word choices etc. Trust me I do and most times all it takes is waiting for the story to grab hold for it not to matter. When I do include things about what I thought about the book (for example I've included comments about word choices and being too descriptive), I only do so because it directly affected how I felt. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

Delicate Freakn' Flower by Eve Langlais
Erotic Paranormal Romance - M/F/M Menage
Dammit , just how many toes was she going to have to stomp on before people realized she was a delicate freakin’ flower?
Naomi doesn’t want to follow tradition and settle down with a violence-loving, chest thumping shapeshifter. She grew up in a household with five, testosterone laden brothers where none of the dishes ever matched, the ugly-as-sin furniture could withstand any catastrophe, and where crazy glue was bought by the case.
When fate—with a snicker—makes her meet not one, but two mates, Naomi digs her heels in and refuses to do what her wolf—and her body—demands. No way is she voluntarily allowing herself to get hitched to a pair of dumbass—totally hot and muscled—lacrosse players.
Can Ethan, the towering Kodiak bear, and Javier, the sexy, tanned jaguar convince this she-wolf that life with them won’t be all chaos? And can this delicate freakn’ flower unbend her prejudices enough to recognize she needs a pair of men who can handle her thorns—and her passion?
Warning: this is a hot threesome story where all the focus is on her with pleasurable consequences
Holy COW! This book NEEDS to come with a warning label. Oh wait, it does *rereads "this is a hot threesome story..."* Well it needs to include that the sexiness and intensity between Naomi, Ethan and Javier is so HOT that if you're not swooning, you're hosing off the bed sheets! I absolutely loved this book and it's another winner for Eve.
There's a reason why Eve is an author that's an auto buy for me. I don't even have to read the blurb or see the cover to know I'll enjoy every word. That says a lot because I'm a complete cover whore and have been known to turn away from a book when I wasn't "feeling" the blurb. There are so many things I love about Eve's books and this could very well be my favorite of hers to date.
One thing I love the most is the heroines in each book and Delicate Freakn' Flower had one so feisty that she literally screamed from the pages. Naomi is surrounded by loud, abrasive, rough and tumble shifters and craves for any sense of "normalcy" in her life. So much that she will ignore her shifter instincts and hold on to anything human. She proudly and loudly declares herself a delicate flower and is furious when her life is turned upside down by not one, but TWO suitors declaring her their mate. Does she get two calm, gentle human mates? Nope, she gets two hot as heck shifter Lacrosse players, Javier and Ethan and they drive her NUTS! I give her kudos, she gave it a good try to ignore the feelings they stirred in her and her own need to claim them. I wouldn't have been able to do it. One moment under their scrutiny and I'd be putty in their hands. I loved the attitude she gave, the way she tried to get what she needed but most of all, I loved it when she finally gave herself to them *sigh* it made for some hot lovin'
Javier and Ethan were PERFECT! I loved how they were both best friends and that they were able to roll with the punches when they realized they were mated to the same woman. It didn't become a contest to see who was better, it became how they could both help Naomi accept them and the mating. They both had these amazing attributes that made it hard to choose which I loved best. I loved Ethan and how he seemed like the under dog. He wasn't this suave casanova - he was honest, dedicated and completely focused on making Naomi happy. Javier was silver tongued with all the right flirty words but I loved how ready he was to commit, without a second thought. Together they were so protective and I can't even begin to imagine how they were together when they set their sights on you. Complete swoonfest!
This was a great book for a lazy afternoon. I had so much fun reading it and I walked away with that "feel good" feeling I expect after I finished devouring a story. I wasn't disappointed and this is definitely a book lovers of romance and shapeshifters will want to get their hands on. Two thumbs up Eve! Happy reading!
