This is the joy of a story by Cardeno C. The characters are real, loveable and memorable. Jared and Lucas are perfect examples. They will stay with you long after you have read the last word. Don’t miss McFarland’s Farm. It has everything you need in a great MM story – fantastic men, a realistic plat and love to die for. How can you go wrong?

Crack, I tell you. The fluffy, sweet, tooth-achingly sugary crack that are CC novels, and I'm an addict.

Love Bytes Reviews

I absolutely loved Control. It is beautifully written with so many elements that worked perfectly for me. …The world building is wonderful…I also love the way the men's animal natures are done so well. Whether it is Robert's love of nesting and cuddling, or Vy's pleasure at flying and almost literal ruffled feathers when he gets worked up, we really get a nice sense of the animals within these men. The story is called Control, and that theme runs throughout the book….I loved the world these authors created and the wonderful way they portray the shifters. I found Robert and Vy such a great match for each other, one big and gentle and the other feisty and small. The two men are so different, but somehow they find comfort and strength in each other in such a lovely way. The story is romantic and sexy and really engaging. I just loved Control and very highly recommend it.
