[ Review Posted: Jun 12, 2017 ]
CADE is book one in the Le Beau Brothers series by V.A. Dold and it was pure entertainment. If you are familiar with paranormal romances, you may have a certain expectation starting to read but Ms. Dold took it a step or three farther.
Likes: Let's start at the beginning. The prologue had me grinning and instantly drew me into the story. The parents were fantastic in their conspiracy to have grandchildren.
Make that love...I absolutely loved that Anna James is a woman in her forties. Sooooo many of these stories have the characters in their late teens/early twenties that it's downright refreshing when we have a female lead with college-age children. And I loved how Cade and Anna knew each other. It was so sweet watching their relationship unfold in a new way.
Dislikes: Tim. Enough said.
This story has a little something for everyone. Shape shifters, hot billionaire alpha, feisty curvy female lead, New Orleans, bit of a Cajun accent thrown in, romance, suspense, bad guys, vampires, boisterous family of brothers, and the list goes on. The chemistry between Anna and Cade was fun to read and if this is an example of rest of the series, be prepared to buy them all. - See more at: theromancereviews.com/viewbooksreview.php?bookid=25163
About the Author
Her idea of absolute heaven is a day in the French Quarter with her computer, her coffee mug, and the Brothers, of course. Or a night with a sexy cowboy in the hayloft.
A Midwest native with her heart lost to Louisiana & Texas. She has a penchant for titillating tales featuring sexy men and strong women. When she's not writing, she's probably taking in a movie, reading, or traveling. Oh, and there is the distinct possibility she is out cowboy hunting.

Dialogue, for the most part, flowed nicely and helped move the plot along. Characters each had their own authentic voice, although once Anna and Cade mated they seemed to sound similar, to this reader's mind. That could very well have been intentional, showing another way as to how their bond strengthened and in a sense, combined the pair. Settings were lusciously described in rich detail; this reader easily envisioned strolling around in New Orleans - a place she has never had the fortune to visit thus far, yet now feels as if she has. Dold has a lovely story-telling voice that truly makes a reader feel invited in and visit for as long as they want. Add to that, there were very few grammar, spelling or punctuation errors, showing Dold loves her work enough to care for it after she has put it to page. Dold kept up a fairly decent pace with just enough lulls to allow a reader to relax, then wham! Something new comes along to start hearts a-racing. As a side note, this reader read some older reviews stating there was no plot to the tale, and I beg to differ. The plot was one of the oldest in the 'books of plots': boy meets girl; boy woo's girl; girl denies and/or struggles with feelings for boy; boy gets girl. For those complaining, they might want to consider there actually are no truly new and unique plots - only ways to tell them.
Dold's story far exceeded this readers expectations - epecially after the last few books written by others, that she's read - and she happily recommends this book. Was it perfect? No. But it was an enjoyable read with few flaws. It was sensual, thrilling, a tad dramatic, and offered some action in the mix, as well. While this tale had a happily ever after ending, it also set up the second book in the series, without a cliffhanger, in an interesting and satisfactory way. Again, this reader does recommend this book for a fun read and plans to purchase the next in the series.
and although I loved the story, and I will read other books in this series, some things in this one
did bother me, so it gets just 3 stars.
Cade and Anna are Mates
age, children, horrid ex-husbands nor mob bosses will stop this love affair.
I felt there was decent world building in this, and maybe too many details about food, clothes, weather, or
a persons body and how they look. It started really nice with Anna being a plus size women,
she has low self esteem because of verbal abuse from the Ex for years. But in this book she gained
her self esteem way too quickly, and mainly only because she was shrink wrapped into a smaller younger body
with less wrinkles once she was mated. .Of course then she felt great about herself and the fact she had
a drop dead gorgeous man by her side. This is the part of the story that I took away 2 stars for.
If your going to write about a Plus Size women, leave her a plus size, don't change her from a size 16 to a 10
and still call her a plus size women. She doesn't have to rebuild her self esteem through the book, it is instantly there
when her body changes.
I will read the next book, I want to find out how things work out with Simon... If the price is right,
from the previews I see his mate is also a plus size women, so if she is changed to a lower size as well that
will be my last book in this series....
Happy Reading Ya'll

Attractive is a billionaire wolf shifter, who loves a curvy woman and lucky for his mate happens to be a delectably curvy woman, and the woman he has been dreaming about for years. He saw her briefly once but distracted he lost her in the crowd, so when he scents her the second time he makes his way to her, determined to claim and protect his mate. Anna’s ex-husband refuses to stay in the past and tries to cause trouble, what he doesn’t count on is the fierce shifter ready to do anything to protect his mate.
I love a good shifter romance, so when I saw this was a freebie downloaded straight away. The blurb had me thinking this would be a tantalising read, with steam, passion and action but honestly the book lacked depth and energy.
Plus, there were things that had me sighing in displeasure. For example, Anna’s husband has been repeatedly unfaithful as well as demeaning her looks etc, and she was aware of him cheating more than once but she stayed for her sons, my issue is that I didn’t like her staying in such a rubbish marriage, sometimes leaving whilst hard is the best for everyone (kids included).
Also, despite having dreamed of each other for years, when they get to know each other in person, Anna seems to have no surprise that Cade’s life and family reflect what her dream guy told her!
Potential Triggers: Anna’s ex-husband attempts to kill her and attack her. Plus, whilst married to the douche he was verbally abusive
As I went to get my photobook signed, VA Dold gave me a copy the first copy in her Le Beau Brothers series - Cade.
I honestly thought I would put it in my suitcase and get around to reading it sometime; BUT I think the pull of learning more about these sexy shifters was too strong, and I started reading this immediately.
I loved getting to meet Anna and Cade both very strong characters each with their own back stories.
Anna was finally free from a loveless marriage but had 2 wonderful sons, Thomas and John, they both appeared to be very protective of their mother, but also she moved on with her life.
And through some gentle coercion, Cade bumps into Anna at a bar, and the immediate attraction begins. They have been getting acquainted for the past 5 years through dreams and visions both thinking they were just that dreams.
I loved how easy they were with each other, but also Cade's very protective and possessiveness coming to the forefront.
Anna's ex Tim was a scoundrel, and I was wondering why he came over all alpha, when he really wasn't like that, he was a coward and used Anna's insecurities to belittle her.
I was glad she gt to meet her perfect dream man, Cade was really something else.
Whilst this is not my first paranormal book, I do believe my first fall shifter story.
It really had me turning the pages and I shall now head over to get the remaining series, can't wait to read Simon's story. If Cade and Anna's story is anything to go by, the emotion I had with this book is only going to be intensified in Simon and Rose's story.
A really lovely story about finding your very happy forever after.
This had a nice story, plot, and writing. The characters are nice and this is the start of a series for all family members. Lots of angst which made for good reading, lots of love and romance but also lots of sex which is sweet. A nice shifter story for paranormal lovers.
