    One thought on “Fighting Instinct”

    1. i am perverse to explain my feelings let me try this way i had terrible dreams for many years.i was grieving, and afraid of pain but when a true catastrophe finally arrived, and there was nothing left to fear because it had all happened already i stopped dreaming at all.i didn t rest it wasn t peace i had i was numb.terribly wounded, but not afraid any.i felt a kind of release there, i thought, it s done the loss has occurred, and the pain i was afraid of is here i will have no nightmares, and [...]

    2. 2.5 starsThere isn t enough liquor to make the pain go away This was not your typical shifter story Oh, no This was a Calmes shifter story So it was shifters ON CRACK In full military gear With GUNS Also included life sucking ANGST But not logic Logic who needs it There is an compound estate called L Ange somewhere that houses a giant chateaux with decorations and a museum All kinds of shifters live on this estate There are jackals, a lion, a stag, andwouldn t you like to know Arman, the narrato [...]

    3. Actually, let me tell you later Right now I m going to lay down with a bowl of Nutella and a Sterek It s called Sterapy I just made that up AaandI m back.I have no idea what to say about this book Is it a clusterfuck Is it an enjoyable clusterfuck Is it a great read and I m just a nitpicker who has, perhaps, read too much Mary Calmes Should I just say fuck this shit and go read A Matter of Time for the 623rd time WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK IS GOING ON I m at a loss, so in lieu of an actual review, he [...]

    4. Occasionally, Mary Calmes goes way too over the top This is one of those times.Spoilers below.This review is going to be a collection of gifs Partly because I m feeling lazy But mostly because I came across a Buzzfeed article about the Real Housewives Even though I ve never seen any version of that show, that article is gif gold First, my feelings regarding Arman Seriously, the dude needs help And so does Linus I m not sure in what world serial killing is romantic Yes, I understand that Linus ha [...]

    5. 4 StarsA Mary Calmes shifter story is my absolute favourite kind of Mary Calmes story She creates such unique, multifaceted shifter worlds, featuring richly complex and wholly original shifter lore, while also keeping true to all the fun, sexy, and possessive tropes that I enjoy so much when reading shifter themed romances If you re looking for all the delicious mating and claiming and MINE moments, then look no further, because the L Ange series has it all in abundance As is Calmes way, there s [...]

    6. 3.5 StarsI ve got to give credit to Calmes She definitely keeps things interesting when she writes about her shifters, bringing all sorts of new dynamics, new types of animals, and new cultures, lore and legends.Still strongly connected with MC s Roman and Quade from Old Loyalty, New Love, this book expands on two prominent side characters Linus has been through a seriously awful betrayal, one that cost him his family and nearly his very life When he s given the opportunity to find sanctuary at [...]

    7. Villain of one story, hero of another Be still my beating heart That was so romantic I am shocked at the emotions I felt while reading this I laughed and I cried but mostly I just smiled with dreamy eyes I feel like reading it all over again I loved, loved, loved the patience and the care that Arman had with and for Linus I was bowled over by his conviction And Linus, he may have to be one of the strongest characters I have ever encountered The tragedy of his life and his rebirth from it because [...]

    8. Umm WTF I just finished Old Loyalty, New Love and I thought it was pretty fucking obvious that Arman and Tucker were going to be the next couple So I repeat W.T.F.

    9. It wasn t that I was some kind of romantic, nothing could be further from the truth, but there was no doubt that Linus was the other half of me Did Not Enjoy I LOVE me some Mary LOVE But this one I almost didn t finish Arman was completely unlikable his name was kickass though and it just all felt a bit meh Much preferred the first one and it s highly likely I ll read the next one but this was disappointing Our eyes locked, mine I knew because I d had enough lovers tell me hooded and hot.

    10. Okay, people Here we go I love, love, love me some Mary Calmes crackery Alasis onet as much.First, I ll say that this book is in no way what I thought it was going to be At all I had a bunch of wrongity wrong wrong ideasOP Hammer Time Oh wait I meanMILD SPOILERS ALERT but no big ones and def not the biggest one Soooo, I figured this was going to be a delish triad made up of Arman the mystery shifter, Linus the stag shifter, and Tucker the jackal shifter Nope Not at all Tucker got played, y all a [...]

    11. UPDATED for audio book 5 1 2015I m not sure if it s Tristan James narration, or reading the story again, but I noticed so many new nuances that escaped me last time Before, I was hung up on certain aspects and I missed the whole Sort of a seeing only the trees and not the forest thing.This time around I see the forest While I still prefer prettier shifters, this time around I definitely appreciated the encompassing love Arman and Linus have found together.I even totally understood the need Arman [...]

    12. I don t know how to rate Mary Calmes any Is it me It s her, right This book was batshit crazy, and the romantic pair at the centre of it may have been even psycho than Thingy and Whatshisname from Mine And shifters But I love Mine, so crazy qua crazy doesn t bother me I think this book seemed lazy crazy, like Mary s just phoning it in it lacks that completely nutso element where Whatshisname wakes up in the middle of the night and Thingy is brooding over him, thinking about carving his name in [...]

    13. I don t know what is about this author but I basically love everything I read from her to varying degrees This isn t my favourite from her but not the worst either Like a few other reviewers I was expecting the romance to be with Tucker, poor guy got the shaft without actually getting the shaft Still, I liked the characters, the revenge plot, and the romance Bring on book 3.

    14. Another Mary Calmes winner for me I m glad I ve had two good ones in a row after one sort of meh one I ve always enjoyed reading this authors books and I really enjoy her shifter books The first book in this series was amazing and I loved it This didn t quite do it for me in the same way, but I still see this as being a 4 star read and I m looking forward to the next book in the series.Arman and Linus were an awesome couple I really liked them together They were both possessive guys, which is aw [...]

    15. If I played the drinking gameYou would be reading a review right now that made absolutely no sense That s right there is a drinking game to accompany this author s books due to the fact that there are some fairly formulaic components to her writing and yet somehow her books are so easy to enjoy Whether it is because of or in spite of this fact depends on the reader.This author is a must have for me Of the 39 titles by her that I own I have 2 remaining to be read Fighting Instinct is book 2 in he [...]

    16. 3.5 starsI am, by no means, an expert in shifter books This is only my 3rd I ve ever read, and if it weren t for a buddy read, I d probably never have picked this upspite loving me some Mary Calmes So, with my limited experience, and my low love for our furried friends, I jumped in And I was pleasantly surprised There were some classic Calmes in hereere were 100000000 characters, some mine loving though with shifters, apparently since you re mated , mine actually means something , and lots of na [...]

    17. Okay I know the norm is to associate Mary Calmes with OTT fluffy stories but I think most don t give her credit for these worlds she can create and how truly Tarantino she can make her MC s This book was so fucking good When we met Arman in Old Loyalty, New Love he wasn t really interesting until the end The deal with Tucker didn t sit right with me as Arman didn t seem that fond of Quade and I couldn t see him mating with someone who had Quade as an Alpha When we get that last bit with Roman an [...]

    18. 3.5 starsThis was better than I expected Yes, Arman was an asshole Yes, he was also a serial killer But I melted with how much he loved Linus and how he would do anything for him That made it better for me to endure him.Arman is an arrogant ass for this entire book, but never to Linus, just to other people So I was okay with that Arman is a shifter, working as head of security for Roman Howell He has also been trying to court Linus, a white deer shifter, for the past 7 years But Linus is broken [...]

    19. Bumping this up another star because I loved it this time around.Everything I want to say about this book can be found in Red s review

    20. It s been a while since I read Mary Calmes s very special brand of cray cray But after I read some recent reviews, I decided it was time to go in again.Don t get me wrong, I usually love this author s unique craziness Even though it s OTT AF, I just can t stop reading once I start one of her books, her style is addictive I m kind of embarrassed to say that I don t even know the exact number of times I ve read her Matter of Time series But I also love her other shifters series, so I was optimisti [...]

    21. NOOOO It can t be over Why Why is the next book not written for me already I love this series I loved this book It just made me so happy There s something a little different about these shifters and I enjoy that Linus and Arman have been dancing around each other for seven years Linus past makes trust difficult, not to mention the reaction of his inner animal as well His deer recognizes the predator in Arman and he s fighting against his own nature as well his learned fears to be with the man hi [...]

    22. And then there was this one Fighting Instinct is the second book in the L Ange series and was also narrated by Tristan James and as with Old Loyalty, New Love and Chosen Pride I was completely enchanted with the arrogant, confident and slightly cocky voices of the alpha men in this series So once again a 3 star read that Mr James s narration made just a little bit enjoyable and 3 stars became 4 and here s my link to my original reviewOriginal Review Fighting InstinctSept 29 30 What can I say, l [...]

    23. I won t rate this since I only read to 52% This just wasn t anything like I was expecting I m a Mary Calmes fan, but this just wasn t working for me Maybe I can come back to this some other time.

    24. I liked this rather bloodthirsty story and I am convinced that Arman de Soto is actually Wolverine A gay Wolverine right here in a Mary Calmes novel I kid you not This must be Mary Calmes darkest shifter story yet It is wrapped up with love, emotions and attraction but at its heart is violence and vengeance and blood Lots of it.It is a bit like reading a mafia story but with shifters, or like reading a Wolverine story those are always violent with the brave but distant hero who has blood and ven [...]

    25. 4.5 starsA really nice addition to the series At first I thought the book would be bogged down with laws, rules, tradition, etc like the latter books of Change of Heart series Thankfully, after a heavy handed explanation in the middle, things start to flow.It has various kinds of shifters werewolf, jackal, lion, deer, and even a view spoiler hyena hide spoiler Oh, we also see Quade and Roman again.A shifter stories with a multicultural setting I like that Ms Calmes shows that diversity means mul [...]

    26. This started out as a DNF I made it just past the 50% mark before I gave up It just wasn t doing anything for me Then I came across Jennifer s review and decided I might give it another chance Then I saw that the audio book was out and had Tristan James as the narrator How could I not I am very glad I did Don t get me wrong, I still didn t fall in love like I did with Jory and Sam, but I did enjoy it So 3 for the story plus an additional star for Tristan James.

    27. Wow So to rate this I guess I ll go with two and a half, rounded up to three, stars since I was relatively entertained and there were some of those really beautiful moments that Mary Calmes is so good at, but view spoiler Did the last book appear to be setting up Arman and Tucker Yes Was I actually surprised by it being Arman and Linus No Not sure why that is Someone, somewhere, mentioned that there were little pieces of foreshadowing about them, so maybe that was it It didn t bother me that it [...]

    28. Warning extreme Mary Calmes fan I loved OLNL and was super excited to read Arman s story, unlike a lot of readers I never thought Arman and Tucker were going to be a real item, because of how Arman looked at Linus I really wanted the two together and honestly at first I thought Arman was a dragon I mean come on that would have been awesome maybe a bear Not a lion thanks to Shelly Laurenston I know how lazy and vain they are maybe a big white snow leopard But when I found out what he was it was p [...]
