I would recommend that you try the sample before purchase if you're not sure the humor is going to work for you. It kicks in pretty quick so you should get a good idea if you think Meryn is funny or just an idiot.
It took me months to finish this book because of the ridiculousness of it. I would have to stop reading and just not look at it for weeks.
Series: Bewitched & Bewildered
Author: Alanea Alder
Designation: Book One of Series, Full-Length Standalone, No Cliffhanger #paranormalromance
My Rating: Five Delightfully Entertaining Stars*****
This is my first time reading the work of Alanea Alder but it certainly won't be my last! I love unique paranormal romance, addicted to action, adventure & suspense, completely smitten with sexy, brave, alpha heroes, adore sassy, courageous heroines, and there's nothing I enjoy more than an infusion of laugh-out-loud humor, but when I can get it all in one well-crafted and beautifully written book, I'm in absolute heaven! And that's exactly what Alanea Alder delivered in My Commander, the first full-length standalone paranormal romance in her riveting and highly imaginative Bewitched & Bewildered Series. Did I like this book? No, I LOVED it! Would I recommend it? You bet, and I am but only for adult readers since it does contain explicit language, graphic violence, and steamy, dreamy sex. Will I read this author again? Absolutely which is probably the best recommendation I can give! As a matter of fact, after completing this book, I raced back to Amazon and purchased the remaining nine books of the series, which speaks volumes as to how much I enjoyed this author's work! And finally, was I entertained? Completely! I was glued to my chair, white-knuckling my ereader, my heart fluttering wildly in my chest as the time flew as quickly as the pages! I fell in love with gruff, growly Aiden, who turned out to be nothing but a big teddy bear at heart, and Meryn truly captured my heart! I adored her quirkiness and free spirit! But just a little warning, folks, don't start this book unless you have plenty of time; you will not want to stop until you reach the last page. I should know; I stayed up all night because I couldn't stop reading! lol... Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read! Thanks for the recommendation Fran Zoch!
A spell was cast to find the forever mates for the warriors of the secret town, Lycaonia. Meryn, new to the closest town to Lycaonia, decides it would be a good idea to climb a 10 foot tall fence to go exploring. Of course she is found. And Aiden, the Unit Commander of the warrriors has of course, found his mate. Meryn is not having any of it and so begins the tale of a woman and her neanderthal of a mate, Aiden. The fact that Aiden is a bear shifter, and the rest of the warriors are all sorts of supernatural creatures, just adds to the enjoyment of this story.
Meryn was not your typical paranormal romance heroine, to say the least. She wears nothing but jeans, t shirts, and hoodies. Potty mouth? For days! And she doesn’t have a filter, what she thinks spouts out of her mouth, even when it will get her into trouble. She doesn’t like people and likes being a loner. Aiden is hundreds of years old and has the temperament of a bear most of the time. He really knows very little about the outside world as human life doesn’t interest him. When he meets Meryn and gets assaulted over and over by her, he really makes a mess of things-hence the reason Meryn calls him a neanderthal. When she makes Star Wars or Dr. Who references, he is completely confused. She may have been bewitched into finding him, but he’s definitely bewildered.
Other characters that are introduced included a wolf shifter, Colton, a vampire, Gavriel, and bears, Adelaide and Byron, Aiden’s parents, among many others. Also included in the story are witches and Fae. This author’s world building had information about all the different creatures, as well as about the new world that Meryn is now a part of. And what a world it is. The people dress right out of the Regency period, but at the same time do have antiquated computers, cars, and other technology-just enough to get by in the real world.
I really enjoyed seeing Meryn take on the high society of Lycaonia, and her elder counsel visit became the stuff of legends. Not only does Meryn have to learn to navigate this new world, but the new world has to come to terms with Meryn. She’s not exactly anything that they have ever encountered before!
So I could go on an on. But I won’t. I will say that when Meryn sends Aiden to the store for tampons, it was one of the funniest scenes I have read in years. The book is worth it for that scene alone! There’s also a mystery involved that I won’t be going into either, but should be mentioned. I ended up loving this book even with it’s problems, and I would highly recommend it to adult paranormal romance readers. Me? I am going to dive into the rest of the series-next up Gavriel, the vampire, finds his mate.
