Watch out for the Assassin’s Claws…but be even more aware of the Ninja Bunnies! 

Dan Moreno is a paid killer, just like his four brothers. It’s the family business – they fight together, they die together. Whether they’re working as a group or alone, they are a tight unit who protect their own. The only fly in their ointment? The neighboring Blythe brood of ninja bunnies who steal their jobs and show them up on the regular. 

After years of in-fighting, the Moreno and Blythe families have found a tentative peace and mutual respect after working together to bring down a group intent on revealing the existence of shifters to the world. Mostly…except for the two opposing members who haven’t found a way to coexist. And the chances aren’t great that they ever will. 

Twenty-three years ago, Dan scented his true mate in Gil Blythe. After irritating the sassy bunny beyond redemption, Dan had no choice but to walk away and ignore the other half of his soul. Until now. Forced together for one more joint mission, Gil and Dan’s secret is out and both of their families are calling them idiots. 

Can two equally proud and stubborn men put the past behind them and give each other a second chance to finally forge a bond that will unite them for all time? 

This fifth and final book in the Assassin’s Claws series is about 33k in length. Note: While every book in this series didn’t contain mpreg, this one makes up for it! This book contains a secret magic island, a council made of mythical creatures, and a birth scene that has to be seen to be believed. Get ready for naughty-knotty fun and low-ball humor as only Susi Hawke can provide.

My review:

I’ve really enjoyed this series and am glad it wrapped up so nicely.  I adored Gil.  The Ninja Bunny has been fighting on the side of right for many years.  He and his family have been in competition with the Morenos for many of those years.  Now it’s time for the two families to find a way to co-exist.  A way to continue to fight for injustice.  A way to protect the existence of shifters.

Then there’s Dan.  When I found out what he’d done to piss Gil off, I was a little irritated with him myself.  I totally could see Gil’s point of view.  But here’s the thing about fated mates – you can fight all you want, but eventually you’re going to be ensnared.  Such is what happens to the two shifters, and by far the funniest birth scene I’ve ever witnessed.  Or listened to.  Or…you know what I mean.

The families form an alliance, the shifter world will remain hidden and safe, and these two get their happily ever after.  All wrapped up in a perfect package.  A nice series that tied up all the loose ends.  And narrating this story is Zane Daniels.  I will say he did a great job with the multitude of voices (the Morenos alone are quite a brood).  I intend to look out for more books narrated by him and, of course, more Susi Hawke mpreg books.

My rating:

9/10 Pots of Gold (90% Recommended) – Compares to 4.5/5 Stars

I’m a total fan of M/PREG Paranormal Romances, first and foremost as a reader. I’m excited to share my own omegaverse(s) with you. What’s not to love about adorable Omegas and the Alpha men who love them? If I’m not writing about men sporting baby bumps, I’m definitely reading about them!

I’m a native of Las Vegas, NV, so I’m pre-wired to love everything weird ~ although I don’t find any kind of love to be weird. I’m a cis woman who’s been happily married to the same lovable lug for 18 years. We have a 16yr old son, well, at least I think we do? Either that, or we have a ghost that eats all our food and uses up all wifi playing xbox while screaming into a headset.

As a new author, it’s been amazing to find the amount of support that I’ve been given from readers and my fellow authors. Feel free to message me, I love to chat with fellow readers. Am I a reader? Heck yeah! In fact, I’m never certain that I can completely trust an author who isn’t a fellow bibliophile.
