In Your Eyes Reviews

My Fiction Nook Cardeno C's books are like a balm to my soul. I don't mind angst and drama when I know the payoff is a glorious HEA. ...This book blends tenderness with hawtness (CC's trademark!). ...The secondary characters, especially Samuel's gentle father, were wonderful! There was some conflict and angst, but once the guys found each other, they didn't let go! Wonderful writing, wonderful wolves, wonderful book!

My Fiction Nook I adored this book....What impressed me most in this book is how much Samuel grew into himself and into his feelings, learning that book knowledge alone doesn't make a leader, and that compassion and understanding is often better than commanding and demanding. Loyalty is earned, as is respect. But Samuel also learns to open his heart, to listen to it more than his mind, and to trust in his mate....And CC has this special talent to infuse the holy hot boysecks, Batman scenes with so much emotion, so much heart, that I tend to feel like an unwelcome intruder watching them unfold. But I can't stop reading, either, because they make me choke up and sniffle as well. I've come to know to always have a box of tissues ready when reading one of CC's books. ... Fully fleshed out characters, excellent side characters (friend or foe), and an engaging, nicely flowing plot - what's not to love?

On My Growing TBR Although In Your Eyes is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone. I thought it was a great story, and I loved seeing Samuel's transition from completely closed off to a man coming alive in so many ways after he and Korban truly found each other.

On Top Down Under Book Reviews While In Your Eyes is part of the Mates series, it can most certainly be read as a standalone. It is a lovely contemporary shifter read with engaging, fully realised MCs, and well developed secondary characters. I fell for Samuel and Korban and I had some really strong reactions to events in the book as well. It tugged at my heartstrings and it made me smile. The well named In Your Eyes delivers a well paced, gay shifter romance with much love and a HEA.

Ponderings from Paradise The character development that Samuel undergoes is astounding. ...the author wrote the scenes in such a way that they felt perfectly paced. As expected, the sex scenes were hot and I swear I could feel Samuel's enthusiasm pouring off the pages once he embraced his sexuality and his mate. In Your Eyes has such a great balance of romance, sexual heat, action and intrigue that I was engrossed from beginning to end. Cardeno C. has written yet another great installment in the Mates series and I can only hope there are more to come.
