    1. This was unreadable; weird, trying-too-hard stream of consciousness writing moved into a prolonged sex scene with barely an introduction. There was no world building. I couldn't keep the MCs straight. The story was nonsensical, random, and aggravating.

    2. Well, that one should have stayed on my maybe shelf. Poorly written, strange dialogue, no real explanation of WTF Matt is - avian shifter, but also an alien? From some other world? I dunno, but I was not aware this was a bird shifter story, or I would stopped right there. Squawking and clicking during sex? Err, no thank you!I'm just glad it was short.

    3. 3 stars. I was a bit confused reading this in places; I was also a bit confused checking out the author while trying to decide my rating. I'm not sure if the author is established and published or not from looking at their backlist so I'm not sure what to say. I felt like this was a new writer (which is part of the confusion, because Cherie Noel has a fair sized backlist) so I excused a lot of the jumpy narrative and odd juxtaposition of plot because the emotion and characters were enjoyable - i [...]

    4. Adorable.This was just a big ball of adorable. From the alien, eagle shifter, Matty, who was a stuttering mess of nerves and anxiety to the Zumba loving, king of the weird sayings Chase, this was just a smile worthy read. Matty and Chase have had feelings for each other for years but Chase went away to college and with some divine intervention from his brother, these two men finally get together. Expect that Matty has a secret. This was unique shifter story, with the most adorable eagle shifter [...]

    5. What a good story. It isn't your typical shifter story, wolves. Not even cats, but a story about a eagle-shifter. It isn't instant(the attraction is there) but it takes a while for them to get on the same page. Matt, moved next door to Chase and Ryan's family many years ago. The moment he meets Chase as a small little kid, he knows he is his mate. But, as eagle-shifters, you are not suppose to claim your mate until they are of adult age.An incident occurs when Chase is seventeen, that sets thing [...]

    6. Cherie Noel creates a contemporary, boys-next-door story in which an alien shifter youth falls in love with his best friend's younger brother, but with a hitch. If the object of his affection does not love him back, he will lose his humanity and shift to eagle morph more or less permanently. The story is sweet and sexy, smart and very witty. It abounds with clever allusions to pop culture but in a way that just makes the main characters all the more engaging and endearing. Cherie pulls you into [...]

    7. While the setup for this story was interesting - an alien shifter species living on Earth - unfortunately, for me personally, the actual world building was too sketchy for me to understand what was really going on. I would have loved to find out more, and think this could have been really interesting, but it just wasn't there.Now, if I take Matt to be "just" a shifter, the story about the mating bond with an unsuitable (because too young) human becomes understandable, if not, to me personally, f [...]

    8. The prompt and blurb had me so excited to read this. Again, maybe I had my expectations set too high.Neither of the main characters was even likable, let alone sympathetic. Chase should have been the main PoV according to the prompt, but we spent more time in Matt's head. And Chase waffled back and forth between being a complete asshole and making these ridiculously stupid jokes that the narration then tried to convince me were his trademark.I couldn't understand why they were both so hostile to [...]

    9. Story wasn't bad but It was a very hard read. Spent more time rereading to understand what was written than I did getting into the story.

    10. I liked this but wished I had more background - where they aliens or "just" shifters. And what exactly did Matt do that made Chase hate parties?

    11. OMG this was terrible. I really enjoy a good shifter story but this was just soooooo bad. The beginning made no sense. The prologue tried to set up the story but when the next chapter was just four years later, it was really really confusing because the way it was written, the timeline made zero sense. The writing was stilted and awkward and as for the two MCs, Matt, for an eagle shifter, was a blithering idiot, and Chase, his “mate” was a complete and total @$$ and spent 90% of the story ac [...]

    12. A long time of friendship, of taking the high road, almost keeps the best thing from happening. After some coming to terms with the truth a happy ending in on the way.

    14. Matt is a Aquillian, a eagle shape shifting alien who came to Earth with his family/flock/Accipitridaehenis. Chase isn't, he's human, his brother Ryan is Matt's best friend and they've been neighbors ever since Matt moved in. This is sweet and kind of adorable, mate bonds and confused teenagers in love/lust.

    15. This book was very confusing. I can't tell how many times I had to re-read a paragraph just to be sure I understood what was happening. I'm so sad this happened as I loved the story prompt. This could have been a great story if it had lived up to the prompt.Besides thatKudos to the cover artist!

    17. This was short, and there was quite a bit more information that I would've liked to make the story feel more complete, but it was well written and a great story to come out of one of the annual writing challenges. I enjoyed it.

    18. A bit confusing andunder-explained? I think there was a story here I could have enjoyed but I struggled to make sense of things at times and I think that kept me from truly liking it.
