Review: Jaklyn’s Saviors a hot concept that falls flat

Jaklyn’s Saviors is book three in Elle Boon’s Ravens of War series, which follows the story of mythical creatures tied to the god Zeus. The stories are all menages, m/m/f, and based on this book, Ms. Boon knows how to make a menage sex scene work. Our heroine Jaklyn is a wolf shifter with a troubled past, and Gray and Colt are the Ravens who become her mates. I haven’t read any earlier books in the series, and this book seems to pick up where the last left off. Jacklyn’s relationship with Gray and Colt was obviously set up in prior books, and that made it a little difficult for me to get into this story, although not so much that I couldn’t follow the basic story line.

What made it harder for me to stick with this book was the often clunky writing style. The scenes, for the most part, seem to be written from one character’s point of view at a time. There were several instances, though, where I couldn’t tell which person’s head I was supposed to be in until well into a scene. Quite a few times I guessed wrong. Frequent grammar errors (especially around possessives) also detracted from the book, as did the the occasional odd phrasing.

The story itself is imaginative and interesting in concept, but the execution fell flat for me. This book definitely would benefit from better editing. I give it 2.5 cat kisses.

Jaklyn Marx learned at a young age what pain was at the hands of her father. For seventeen years she’d lived with the physical scars, and the knowledge that she was a latent wolf among her pack. But she had extra abilities. She could connect with others mentally, and had helped free the goddess Selena and aided to save Tamara, both were bonded to Ravens. Meeting two men who claimed she was meant to be theirs sent her running.

Gray and Colt had been searching for their Fated for thousands of years. When they saw Jaklyn in Cronus’s temple their first thought was to claim her then and there. However, she’d run from them. When they found her next she disappeared, again, only this time they were prepared to do anything to find her, even call on goddesses.

Just when the trio find happiness a demon from their past threatens to destroy them. Jaklyn refuses to allow her father to take anything else, especially her newfound love for the two men who save her past, present and future.

Seamus Marx spent seventeen years in Hell waiting for a way to return to Earth and extract revenge on those who killed him. He’d make his pack pay for all his suffering, and then he’d make his daughter suffer twice as bad. He found a way out when Cronus brought him and a bunch of other demons through a portal to fight the Ravens, only Seamus was no longer the god’s puppet.

They will need more than just love to defeat Seamus and his tainted pack. They’ll need the help of all the Ravens and a god or two in order to destroy something Cronus created.

About the Author

I’m a wife and mother who is a retired stay at home mom of 2. I say retired because my youngest is 14 and my oldest is 20. When my baby went to school, reading saved my sanity, and then the same year he started school, I was diagnosed with Cancer, again reading saved my sanity. When I recovered and realized how quickly life could change, I made a bucket list. The number one thing was to live. Check. On top of that list was to become a published author. Check. Eight years later I have accomplished that goal and several others.

I live in the Midwest, but am a southern girl with only a slight twang who says y’all quite frequently, and am known to say “Bless Your Heart” A LOT. If you know what that means, you do not want to be the one I say that to, lol. I cuss worse than if a trucker and a sailor were put together, but I do it with class *WEG*.

I write what I love to read, erotic romance. My books are definitely full of lots of story, but I leave nothing to the imagination when it comes to the sex. My hope, is that after my readers have read one of my stories, they fall in love with my characters as much as I have.

The best part of my new journey is that I get to create new worlds and have all kinds of stories in my head just waiting to be written. I’m creating new worlds, and I hope you all enjoy them with me. I can guarantee you’ll always have a hero or two you’ll love, and a heroine you’ll want to be.

I love to hear from readers, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook or my website, but I’m on Facebook all the time, so find me, I’d love to hear from you.
