The Stolen Suitor

Bike Book Reviews (5 ‘irony’ sticker rating) — “Oh what a tangled (but very entertaining) web we weave…. this book is a non stop read from cover to cover! You just have to read one more chapter to see what happens, and you just have to do this over and over until you are done!”

Rainbow Book Reviews — “From the opening scene that had me laugh out loud at Mabe Crassen’s crafty scheming, to Jeremy’s endearing attempts to be “slick and sophisticated” so he can trap Chris, to Chris’s determination to do “the right thing” – or what he perceived to be right – it quickly became clear to me that all these people had a thing or two to learn. And I had a front-row seat!”

Boy Meets Boy Reviews (5 stars) – “I was laughing and crying and felt frustration, loss and helplessness, as well as hope and determination, and it was all wrapped up in a sweet Eli Easton story. Win!!”

5+ — four different reviews and gorgeous fan art on Gay Book Reviews!  ‘This was such a sweet, delightful read! It has military men, virgins, humor, sex, drama, excitement and passion. And dogs! DOGS! So many bonus points for the dogs.” “It was all beautifully done! This was as close to perfect as you can get and still be on an earthly plane. Bravo, Eli Easton! Bravo!”

6 out of 5 stars from Open Skye Book Reviews — “I can’t express just how entertaining this book is. The dogisms are hysterical, Roman is an absolute sweetheart and the love story is so very sweet. I can’t recommend this and the entire series enough.”

4.5 stars from Dani at My Fiction Nook — “I loved this story though. It was charming and heartfelt. Roman is my favorite! He loves like a dog and Walks like a Man, and deserves the best HEA in the world.”

4.5 stars from Joyfully Jay — “I really like these characters and this town and hope we are getting more of them. I would definitely highly recommend both books in the series, especially to fans of more unusual shifter stories.”

4.5 stars from Sinfully MM Book Reviews — “I have to state that I don’t think I have read a book where I have loved a character more than I loved Roman.”

“How to Howl at the Moon” (Howl at the Moon #1)

5+ stars Reviewsbyjessewave.com — “This is one I can HIGHLY recommend for it’s emotion, originality and kick ass romance. You’re gonna get the ooey, gooey, puddle of mush feeling.”

5 stars Reviewsbyjessewave (for the audio book) — “Matthew Shaw is a new narrator, but don’t let that make you hesitate before picking this up – he was absolutely fantastic. Eli Easton has created a not-so-typical shifter story that’s sweet, funny, hot…and just emotional enough.”

B+ Review Gaylist – A fantastic shifter story full of love and sweetness that had me hooked from the first pages.”

5 stars Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews – “All I can say is WOOF!!! If I had a tail it would be wagging like mad right now just because this book made me feel all warm and yappy…oops I mean happy.”

Guest Post: Interview with Audiobook Narrator Michael Shaw on Scattered Thoughts And Rogue Words.

4.5 stars MM Good Book Reviews — “This book was so hilarious, exactly what I’ve come to expect from Eli Easton.”

5 stars The Novel Approach — “It will capture your attention and hold it firmly until the last page, although you will probably smile at random memories for a few days after you have read it, because that is another skill that this author has – her words stay with you.”

6/5 hearts The Kimichan Experience — “You know that since it’s Eli Easton, the writing is impeccable. The sex is hot. The emotion is deep and abiding. And the humor is sharp and witty.”

4.5 stars Joyfully Jay — “How to Howl at the Moon just blew me away with the clever premise and the really fascinating world building.”

Agony Tate review — “It’s been a very long time since I’ve read something so light hearted and good natured as this book.”

Rainbow Book Reviews —  “I love the idea of a new and different shifter world, but as soon as I started reading and got a feel for the great sense of humor on top of wonderful characters and some truly inventive shifter dynamics, I was hooked.”

4.5 stars Love Bytes Reviews — “What a delightful, refreshing story.”

6/5 Hearts Kimichan Experience (AUDIO BOOK REVIEW) — “[Matthew Shaw’s] voice is rich and flowing, with the right amount of emotion and “acting”.  I really enjoyed listening to this story and will be listening to it again and again!”


“The Lion and the Crow” — Expanded Edition (Jan 2015)

5 stars MM Good Book Review (for 2nd expanded edition) — “…the journey William and Christian take together, with the sexual tension hanging between, them is great because we do see these characters change.

The Novel Approach (for 2nd expanded edition):  “She [Eli Easton] paints a beautiful love story and presents an interesting and intelligent duo that fights all odds to remain together to the very end.”


“Unwrapping Hank”

5 stars The Novel Approach — “Damn, this was a fun read.”

5 stars Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews — “Queen of the sexual tension, she makes us wait for the love scenes but it’s only when you look back that you realise that she’s done that, because the on page electricity and constant awareness of each other that she creates, means you don’t miss them. When the sex arrives it’s always hot and deliciously satisfying and in my opinion all the more sizzling for the delay….”

Rainbow Book Reviews — “…if you’re looking for a fascinating, emotional, and wonderfully funny read that is as well-paced as it is entertaining, then you will probably like this novella.”

5 stars Multitakingmomma — “Unwrapping Hank is a Christmas novella that is highly entertaining, sweetly romantic, and bulldogishly irresistible. This is one story that is hard to put down once started and harder still when it ends.”

4.5 stars My Fiction Nook — “Really, the entire story was FUNNY, so very funny…. And the cuddles in that barn could have burned the place down, baby! ”

4.5 stars Prism Book Alliance — “This is literary comfort food for the soul.”

4.75 stars Joyfully Jay — “Easton masters effective and persuasive writing, her style natural and smooth. Dialogue is realistic, the story doesn’t linger inside people’s heads for too long, and the narrative grabs you until you find yourself turning pages, unwilling to stop until the very last line.”

B+ Gay List Book Reviews — “A wonderful coming out story full of love, family, hot college guys, frat life, brotherhood, humor, friendship and first love that should be enjoyed anytime of the year.”

5 stars The Blogger Girls — “I really, really recommend this book. I just adored it.”

5 stars Kindle Romance Reviews — “The characters were extremely well-developed, and the story had so many wonderful layers to it.”

5 stars Swept Away By Romance — “The characters were extremely well-developed, and the story had so many wonderful layers to it.”

4 stars Time of My Life (for Italian version Scartando Hank) — “It has something unique and unforgettable, though to be precise, it was mainly the style of Easton. It is ironic , funny , with quirky characters and original that it is impossible not to love.”

4 stars  Romanticamente Fantasy (for Italian version Scartando Hank) —  “Recommended especially for those who are new to the genre m / m: smooth and well written, it reads in a flash not because it is short, but it is involving, thanks to irony and sober tones, especially in the sex scenes.”

“bones” (gothika #2)

4 stars My Fiction Nook — “Lyrical, unsettling, provocative, passionate, with a brilliant, slightly ambiguous epilogue, The Bird is about the guilt and shame we bury within us, and about the letting go.”

5* The Kimi-Chan Experience — “I highly recommend this book, 6 out of 5 hearts… or 7… well, you get the idea. Buy this book!”

5 * from RJ Scott — “I adored the science fiction story woven into the story which made me well up on several occasions. Love the misunderstandings, and the resolution, and the secondary characters, and the final sentence. I just loved it all. It was a stunning and beautiful book.”

5 * from Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews — “Fantastic supporting characters, thought provoking situations, gorgeous love scenes and lots of heartfelt emotion….I could gush all day about what I loved about this book but obviously the best thing to do is for me to shut up now so you can all rush off to pick up your own copy”

 4.5 * from My Fiction Nook (Dani) — “thought provoking, emotional, lyrical, brave”

5 stars Head Out of the Oven blog — “I honestly feel that this was the most sensitive of all the books and probably the best written of the lot. I may even go further to state that after reading all of Ms Easton’s works, this is probably her best written.”

4.25 stars Prism Book Alliance — “I really like this unique story – it’s the first M/M romance that I’ve read featuring a sex surrogate, and I found this aspect to be enlightening – and I recommend you read it.”

5 stars Love Bytes Reviews — “The writing was great, the characters perfectly flawed, it alternated from gentle to hard, and sad to happy.”

5 stars Kimichan Experience Book Reviews — “The story just plucks at every darn heart string and leaves you with a huge smile on your face, after you’ve gotten done crying, of course.”

5 stars Swept Away By Romance — “I couldn’t put this story down. The characters were richly developed, and the story was well thought out and enjoyable.”

A Rating from Christi Snow at Smitten With Reading — “This is such a sweet book and incredible romance. I loved reading it and watching these two guys connect. It was truly beautiful.”

5 stars Rainbow Book Reviews — ” ‘The Mating of Michael’ is definitely the most serious of the three stories, but, in my opinion, it also holds the most heart. This is truly one of the gentlest of love stories and one that I cried over.”

4.75 stars Joyfully Jay — “This story is warm and sweet, with great characters who have really fascinating backstories. I was totally drawn into this story and enjoyed it so much.”

4.5 stars from Two Chicks Obsessed — “As I read the blurb, I had no idea how Eli Easton would be able to take the story of a sex surrogate, one who obviously loves his job, give him an HEA, and one that was believable for the readers. Well, magic happened, and I am a believer.”

5 stars from Crystal’s Many Reviews –– “The Mating of Michael – an intensely wonderful, fantastic, mind-boggling, stick-your-butt-to-the-seat-because-you-can’t-stop-reading novel.”

4.5 stars Boys in Our Books — “Heaven is a quick and easy read I recommend for, well, everybody. Pick it up ASAP, but be sure to put on your favorite swingy, swishy dress for your Maria von Trapp solo dance.”

4.5 stars from Bloggergirls — “If you’re looking for something that’ll simultaneously touch you and make you smile, give this one a try because it definitely affected me! I loved it!”
