My FB Group's Recommendations



I enjoyed Not a Game and highly recommend it. With its distinctly different characters, strong scenes of physical and emotional connection, and sweet HEA, it is a lovely m/m romance with excellent promise for a new series.

I adored Charlie as a narrator. He was humorous, witty, playful and honest. ... Charlie's narration is his larger than life personality and I couldn't resist his charm. Some books tell us characters are charming but this book not only showed me his charm but sucked me in with his charm. ... This is a book about people maturing and making decisions on who to build a life with. Though this romance has three people, it's not a ménage in the strictest sense as it isn't about sex really. Yes, the men do have sex together at novel's end (don't think I'm spoiling anything to say that in a Cardeno C. novel which always has trademark hot sex!) However, the relationship development between the three men is what this romance is about. It's fairly straightforward and certainly sweet as readers expect in a Cardeno C. novel.

The Book Vixen

Cardeno C. adds just the right touch of humor to the conversations between Miguel and Ethan. ... Cardeno C. will capture you on the first page and keep your interest as we explore the world created and met the intriguing characters who live in that world. Great characters with a captivating story - how can you go wrong? You can't with Until Forever Comes by Cardeno C.

Sensual Reads

This is yet another romantic cuppa served warm with extra cream and sugar from Cardeno C.

I don't read a lot of shifter books. Because reasons. But now, now that I've read this first book in the Mates series, I'm about halfway to being convinced that I've been missing out. Holy hot boysecks, Batman.... The part how they were drawn together, so perfect for each other, from the very beginning recognizing their true mate bond ...I loved the easy banter, the deeply formed relationship....Fully developed characters give this book the extra oomph. Witty dialogue, snarky snark and humorous banter had me laughing out loud on many occasions, and only CC can manage to make me giggle and go 'awwwww' at the same time....Let's not forget, this is a shifter book. A book about shifter mating, and holy cow, that first time for these two - it nearly melted my Nook. I felt like I was intruding on something sacred when Zev and Jonah make love for the first time....this was a wonderful story to convince me of the merits of shifter stories.
