The requested theme was shifters, werewolves specifically. I mostly stayed true to the werewolf bit. Dinos kinda act like wolves, right…right??
I am so going to have to do another shifter post, stat. There were so many I wanted to include!! So unless my mood changes drastically before the end of the week, stay tuned for part 5.
I’ve read and liked quite a few of the below. Some are new to me, but I have added these gems to my TBR pile. I hope you all find some new ones to add to yours!

I have huge man problems.Literally, since one of my mates is a T-Rex.
Things are about to get interesting, because my day job happens to be in a museum.
A museum full of dinosaur bones, if you know what I mean.
It turns out my bloodline is older than dirt, and an ancestral matchmaker decided to send me some gifts…aka, men. And not just any men, but dinosaur shifters from the past.
I’ve read enough paranormal romance to know all about fated mates, but I’ve never heard of fated dinosaur mates. These men are supposed to be my perfect match, here to help me learn about my magic. Rawr. Yes, they are as sexy as you are imagining.
My life had been a routine of working and spending time watching TV with my pet pig, Albert Einswine. Now I needed to learn to control the magic I never knew I had, learn more about my family line, and help these sexy dino shifters adjust to modern society.
All while hiding a T-Rex sized secret from the world.
To make matters worse, detectives are looking into the explosion I may or may not have caused when my blood mixed with some magic-infused ancient dust, which is a serious problem since the sexy green-eyed detective has my heart flip-flopping in my chest.
Dinosaurs & Disasters is a light-hearted romantic comedy with a whole lot of steam! This isn’t a save-the-world type of story, but rather it focuses on Arizona’s coming into her hidden abilities and tracking down each of her fated mates.
*This is a paranormal series, not a serious true-to-science series. So, if you are hoping to learn about dinosaurs, this probably isn’t the read for you. If you want to giggle hard enough that the people around you think you're crazy, then this might be the book for you!

I laughed out loud reading this. Can't wait for book 2!
Rejected by my so-called mate, I soon discover that fate has other plans for me.
Three Alpha shifters can’t wait to claim me as theirs.
Three years ago, the dominant Alpha of my family’s enemy wolf pack stole my heart. Certain I’d found my fated mate, I sought solace in him when misfortune visited me and someone close to me died. But instead of consoling me, he rejected me and condemned me to a horrific fate.
I thought my life was over. Then they appeared.
Blade. Killian. Lorcan. Three powerful shifters rescued me.
Blade–my confident warrior.
Lorcan– my long lost childhood friend.
And Kieran – my lightness in the dark.
I’m not ready to give my heart away again, but it’s impossible to resist them. Their strong hands, their passionate lips, my body demands I give into them.
Getting closer to them leads to conflicts
But our passion is cut short by all the questions that still need to be answered. As I wonder whether this new pack will accept me, I know I need to discover how my real father died and what my true identity is.
Can I find happiness with my three shifters, or have I signed all of our death sentences by accepting their help?
Feral Deceptions is the first book in the Awakening of the Chosen series, a reverse harem paranormal shifter romance. Don’t miss this wild, steamy ride with a badass heroine and her hot three shifters!
Lucas and Grayson were the first two people I met on campus. I had no idea why they had taken an interest in me or why I kept hanging out with them. Sure, they were hot, but I didn’t usually do friends, and certainly not boyfriends. As in plural. Most people called me a freak. I was an enigma. Something they couldn’t figure out. Simply because my eyes were different. I mostly avoided people, but Lucas and Grayson were determined to make me keep my chin up. I felt safe when I was with them, and that wasn’t a feeling I had often.
My eyes weren’t the only thing different about me, but I could hide the rest of it. Until I discovered that I wasn’t really human. What a wakeup call to find out that Lucas was a wolf shifter and Grayson was a griffin, and better yet that I was their mate. But I had no idea what I was. I’d been adopted as a baby, raised in the human world, but there was so much more out there to learn about, and I should have been a part of that world all along.
Oh, and did I mention mermaids were real? And it seemed I’d caught a particular merman’s attention. But he wasn’t the only one. It seemed everyone was out to get me, and by that, I meant to kill me. Was it too much to ask to just be normal and have a normal sophomore year at college? Normal had never been in the cards for me, but until I could figure out exactly what I was, all I could do was keep going to classes and watch my back.
If Talonswood’s academy of monsters doesn’t kill me, then the four wicked men ruling it certainly will.
After surviving New Jersey’s foster system, I thought I could survive anything. Even taking a dangerous job from a tall, gorgeous stranger so I can keep my little sister safe—a job that goes very, very wrong. With a choice between prison or Talonswood Academy, I sign the papers.
Except Talonswood isn’t a normal military school. It’s a fortress where monsters I never knew existed are brought under under rein. Vampires, wolf shifters, and now me. A witch. The only one of my kind—and the enemy of theirs.
Now, four powerful, impossibly beautiful men are set on seeing me destroyed. Asher, the Academy’s harsh pack leader. Reese and Cassis, the vampire brothers who smell the power in my blood. And that gorgeous stranger? Ellis, a legendary wolf shifter who blames me for his own punishment. We were born to be enemies…and fate-carved to be mates.
But worse enemies loom outside the gates. Can these men and I overcome our wounds and hatred to trust the hot bond connecting us? Or will we all fall separately, and the world with us?
This collection contains all four Immortals of Talonswood novels—Last Chance Academy, Last Chance Reform, Last Chance Witch and Last Chance World.

If you are looking for a binge read, this may be the series for you. However, it looks like this is a melting pot harem, meaning I'm not sure what type the harem members are. Looks like there is at least one shifter.
Bullshit is spelled ‘You’re a werewolf’.
First, my parents tell me I’m going to be “checking into the Red Roof Inn” every month, and now, they tell me I’m a werewolf?!
Add to that I need to pick a mate and enter into some wolfy marriage—NOPE.
They can’t make me.
Everyone thinks this is just a phase but nineteen is the new two—and I’m going to show them how terrible I can be.
Buckle up, bitches, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
JUST A PHASE is book one in Not Another Teen Wolf series.
Five broken alphas. One lost wolf. A fate she never expected.
Silver Falls University. There was no reason for a female bitten wolf like myself to be here. More so, there was no reason that someone who grew up as poor as I did, in an overcrowded packhouse in the South Side of Chicago, should be making her way up north to one of the most prestigious supernatural universities in the country. I truly had no idea what to expect. Something that was my own fault. I didn’t exactly have a lot of experience with anyone or anything. ‘Sheltered’ was an understatement, except to the darkness that came with struggling to survive cruel bullying and incurable loneliness that had formed the woman I was today. The place I had grown up never felt like home. No one had ever felt like home. Well, until I met a man on the way to campus. A man that had me feeling so completely comfortable, yet confused and overwhelmed. There had to be something wrong with me, right? This wasn’t normal. Then again, I should have realized that nothing about my life moving forward would be normal. I just didn’t realize how much was in store for me.
Join Effie Harlow on her journey at Silver Falls University, where she begins to realize that something about her is different. This slow-burn reverse harem paranormal romance features five protective and possessive shifter mates that are bound and determined to keep Effie by their side, no matter what. To prove to her that she is so much more than anyone has ever tried to tell her she was. Will they be able to convince her of her place at Silver Falls and in their life? Or will Effie get lost in the university crowds like she did back home?
Find out in this first installment of five in the Silver Falls University Series. Warning: This PNR university-style RH will contain swearing, adult sexual content +18, elements of PTSD and mention of prior emotional, sexual, and physical abuse, violence, and additional darker themes. Mild cliff-hanger warning - the 2nd instalment of the Silver Falls University series, Forgotten, is now available for pre-order.
Thoughts from Paige
I am loving this series. MC is a different type of MC than the usual kick-butt ones I read about, and I love the change of pace. I am SO READY for book number 4.
What if Red Riding Hood didn't fall in love with one Big Bad Wolf but three?
I've been a city girl my entire life. But when my grandmother got sick, I didn't think twice before packing my bags and moving to Crimson Hollow, a small town in West Virginia. Two years later, I'm still here and finally adjusting to the quiet life. Only there's nothing ordinary about this town.
A walk in the woods proved almost deadly and left me changed forever. I was attacked by a rogue wolf, and now, I belong to the Crimson Hollow pack. I'm a shifter. To make matters worse, my arrival in the pack created a rift among the wolves, making it impossible to tell friend from foe, including the three alpha's sons who have taken a keen interest in me. If dealing with all that wasn't enough, wolves are disappearing. We must discover who is behind it, or there won’t be a pack left to fight over.
Two years ago, I lived a hellish life where happily ever afters happened to everyone else, never me. Until he came.
He was an alpha wolf shifter, rich, the most handsome man I’d ever seen in my life…and a monster a million times worse than the past I left behind.
His years of abuse finally break me, but when I least expect it, I’m impossibly free when I should be dead.
Keep running, Saige, I tell myself. Maybe then you’ll find a safe place to hide.
I never expect to run into three men with secrets, shadowed eyes, and damaged souls. With them I can almost believe they will protect me from a past that continues to hunt me.
With them, maybe I’ll be safe.
**This is the first book in a slow burn adult paranormal romance. The heroine will end up with multiple love interests who fall hard for her, one by one. Due to darker themes that may be triggering for some, please see preface for list of possible triggers. Recommended for readers 18+
