The Mystic Wolves – Book #1
Someone is trying to send a deadly message to Mason, arranging the deaths of those he loves and it puts the entire pack and Alpha on high alert. Darcy understands the primal instincts driving her beloved Mason's commands. With the help of those he sets as protectors, she learns about herself and the things she'll need to help support her Alpha and pack. When events turn dire however, one truth offers her strength - once given, oaths are unbreakable ... even if it means risking it all.

Forget Me Not – Book #2
Only a fool would think they could steal from a werewolf …
Anticipating a quiet night alone with the man she loves, Darcy’s world is sent into a spin with the arrival of someone from the past—Mason’s. She is further shocked by the intruder’s claim she may not even be the true mate of the Mystic Wolves Alpha. Accusations start to fly, leading to her new enemy being granted asylum, and this is just the beginning of trouble.
Relying on the reassurances of Mason and the support of her friends and Pack, Darcy soon falls under attack. Suspicions are raised, and with no other choice, she must flee with Devlin to safety where hopefully they can untangle the lies hidden behind the use of magic. Time is quickly ticking away, leading to a showdown where everything is on the line.
They need to uncover the truth before it’s too late, or once again, Darcy will need to fight to hold onto her dreams.

Testing Fate – Book #3
Moments after hearing the Council sentence her enemy to life imprisonment for attempted murder and illegal use of magic, Darcy is whisked away by the Fates—accused of tampering with destiny. The cherished dream she shared with Mason has been called into question, placing doubt about whether they are actually true mates. To resolve it, a price must be paid—the Heart or Death—a grueling series of tests designed to reveal a person’s worth.
The stakes are high and Darcy finds herself facing the unknown in conditions that leave her more vulnerable than she’s ever been. Separated from Mason and her Pack, with Devlin as her only companion, she is pushed to her very limits. She must succeed—or lose everything.
Will she crumble under the pressure or emerge stronger for testing fate?

My Review of The Mystic Wolves Series to Date:
First of all, how swoony are those covers? Sorry, but it needed mentioning.
The Mystic Wolves by Belinda Boring
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Really, I'd only go 3½♥'s... but I chose to round up solely because the end left me swearing and opening book #2, Forget Me Not on my Kindle. There is a significant cliffhanger at the end of the book, like the last line practically.
I want to say that The Mystic Wolves had large amounts of world building, but it really didn't. Internal emotional drama, yes. Perfecting the art of sex without any actual sex (really intense kissing, basically), yes. And apparently I missed the memo somewhere about why they had to wait for some mating ceremony thingy (almost the beginning of book #2 has since answered that question.)
I'm keen to continue, but I wasn't bowled over by this first book. I am still looking quite forward to reading more from Belinda Boring, book #1 in a series is rarely a knock out of the park to start with.
Forget Me Not by Belinda Boring
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Oh, this was better than book #1. 4 solid ♥'s. But then again, who doesn't love a good cat fight? Er, well, female werewolves fight?
Amber was someone you could easily love to hate. Poor Darcy and Mason, just trying to reach that mating ritual finish line and they just can't get a break! It was also nice finding out more about some of the other characters, and I have to admit I rather enjoy the vampires we've been introduced to so far. Even Mr. I'm-the-dorkiest-vampire-ever (God helps us all if he even gets his hands on the Night Huntress series and further tries to 'emulate' the literary vamps rather than be himself.)
Belinda... what are you doing to your readers with these endings? It's not just a hook into the next book- you're lucky I've got Testing Fate here on my little defenseless Kindle and ready to read. Had I needed to wait, there could have been some anger issues.

Testing Fate by Belinda Boring
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4♥'s, plus a little swoony extra.
This third installment of the series has firmly created a fan of this series, for this reader. I'll admit, after the first Book, The Mystic Wolves, I wasn't sold. Even Forget Me Not, Book #2, it wasn't a done deal. It may have not shined like the gem it is initially, but each book added to the series makes it a diamond in the rough. It may take a little extra effort in the beginning, but it is well worth your reading time if you have a soft spot for swoony shifter romances (that are not pornographic.)
Belinda has finally given me a somewhat cliffy end that hasn't made me cuss. To clairify, previous books are notorious for these hook endings that leave you sending glare daggers at the author (well, had I not read books 1-3 back-to-back, I totally would have been glaring after book #1 and #2) So now, I'm ready for book #4, but won't need to kill anyone for not having it ready right this second.
I received a free eBook from Belinda Boring in exchange for an honest review. I received no monetary gain for my unbiased opinion.
