Book Review: Wicked Desires (The Kategan Alphas #3) by T.A. Grey

Where To Find It

Amazon // Nook // Goodreads // Apple // Kobo

Genre: Erotic Romance // Thriller // Suspense

Series: Yes this is the third book in The Kategan Alpha series. However, all books in this series can be read independently. If you would like to read my reviews on the first book in this series, The Mating Cycle, you can click here, and if you would like to read my review of the second book, Dark Awakening, you can here.


The sight of her happily mated brothers has Vera biting her nails in frustration. When the opportunity arises for her to get away from it all she takes it—with one catch—Jackson Marsh. Jackson Marsh has been a pain in her butt from the moment she laid eyes on him. And now to repair his broken trust with her brother Rome, Jackson has agreed to protect Vera as she goes into enemy territory to negotiate with the vampires.

However the change of scenery doesn’t do anything to help Vera’s mood for there was one thing she didn’t think about when she came up with her brilliant plan—seeing her ex vampire lover. Now with her ex vying for her affections again and Jackson sending her body and heart through a loop, Vera must decide what to do with her heart, which has never fully healed itself from the past. In the midst of all the chaos, a vampire clan is threatening to take Kategan land. Together Vera and Jackson must fight to save Kategan land while trying to save each other from falling in love.


It’s really rare for me to find a series that I can continue this far with, and I’m glad to say that this is one of them. After reading Dark Awakening I had thought I had found my new favorite book, but I’m wrong again. This is totally my new favorite, for now at least.

Wicked Desires really stole my heart and made me realize why I love T.A. Grey’s writing. Grey never fails to create relatable characters that feel so real even when they aren’t.

In The Mating Cycle I first met Vera. She was the spunky, outspoken, sister of Vane, and I really didn’t care for her too much to be honest. However, my opinion of her has now changed completely. Upon reading you really get to know her. She’s controlling and guarded, but that’s only because that she had been hurt.

When I found out that Vera’s love interest was Jackson Marsh I have to say I was a little surprised. I mean there weren’t any other original characters to choose from, but I was still surprised. In a good way though. Jackson is different being that he is human and not a werewolf, however he and Vera share common issues. Which is why I think that they are perfect for each other.

Another thing I really liked was the newly introduced supernatural creatures. There are vampires now! Not to mention the fact that Vera’s previous lover was a vampire. I love the integration of new types of characters.

All in all I can say Im very happy with this book. I feel like with each book they get more and more immersive. Yeah there were a few typos, but I think those are going to be fixed across all books. T.A. Grey seems to have been revamping all of her books lately. I definitely plan on continuing this series, because I’m emotionally invested in it at this point. I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW: The Mating Cycle (The Kategan Alphas #1) by T.A. Grey 

Where You Can Find It

Goodreads   Amazon    Apple    Kobo  Nook

Genre: Eroctic Romance // Thriller // Suspense

Series: Yes. However all books in this series can be read as standalones as they all revolve around different characters.


Each year lykaen princess Sarina Brunes goes through her breeding cycle—a powerful force that makes the desire to mate nearly inescapable. When Sarina is sent away by her father to endure the breeding cycle alone, she never expects a sexy Alpha to come to her doorstep.

When Alpha Vane Kategan stumbles upon Sarina in her breeding cycle, he is determined to help her, if only to ease her pain. However, she denies them both what they so desperately want. But Vane won’t give up on his seduction until they both find bliss. What neither of them count on is falling in love.

Right when they need each other the most, they are torn apart by her father’s cruelty. Now Sarina must fight to be with the one she loves and risk losing the only family she has left in the process. Can Sarina escape her father’s grasp for the arms of the man she loves?

*Just a quick disclaimer before I get into the actual review. I’m under the impression that the author is in the beginning stages of changing the title for this book. I recently downloaded the boxset of the first three books, and the first book was called The Breeding Cycle not The Mating Cycle. I just wanted to let you guys know about this so that there is no confusion, because they are both the same book.

I’ve read this book three times over the last two years, just because I really love the characters. As a result of that T.A. Grey has become once of my favorite authors. Now this book is erotic paranormal romance, so if that’s not your thing then I don’t think this book would be for you.

These days with any book that I go into, I tend to discuss pretty much everything about it. Especially after the one I reviewed where the formatting was just absolutely terrible. This time around I read The Mating (or BreedingCycle in the boxset of the first three books, and I had absolutely no issues when it came to formatting. Everything looked smooth and pretty like an ebook should. From what I do recall, I didn’t have any issues with the kindle version of this book alone either.

From the very beginning it was just sex, sex, sex, and more sex. However, I think that it was done right and wasn’t over done. We’ve all read the books that are basically literary porn, and have no plot to them, but I have to say that I don’t believe this one would fall in the same category. Grey wrote the book, in my own opinion, in a way that she allowed the sex scenes to further progress the plot line. If that makes any sense.

Character wise your really focused in on Sarina and Vane. Oh, Sarina’s father as well. Yes there are secondary characters that are introduced, but you really don’t get a good sense of who they are as characters. You know their name, and their purpose, but that’s about it.

Now that I’ve continued the series I see why she chose to do that. It’s because with each book Grey picks a pair of secondary characters, and it shares their own individual stories.

Something that I really did like was that Grey gave the characters some legit problems and conflict. For instance, Sarina is forced by her father to deal with her cycle alone. As the book goes on she is forced to decide on obeying or betraying him and their pack. I honestly felt really bad for Sarina, and I love when authors make me feel for characters I one way or another. I feel like more erotica authors should focus on he character building and story like Grey has here.

This book is also very descriptive. You will know what’s going on and where while being able to have a clear mental image of it.

Now it wasn’t all peaches and cream for me like I’m sure you all are thinking. I did really like this book, but it really could have used a better editor. There were some typos, misspelled words, and tense changes that I caught while reading the boxset version. I’m not sure if its specific to just that version or not. However it wasn’t on every single page, I think I only saw about five errors in the whole thing.  That is the only reason why I could bring myself to give this book a five star rating.

So, I give the book a solid 4.5 stars out of 5. It’s a good, quick, read for you when you wanna escape from the world for a little bit.

Oh, also I wanted to tell you guys that the boxset of the first three books in this series is currently FREE on amazon!! So if you want give this book a go you can click here . It’s also good because if you end up really loving the book, like I did, you’ll already the next two downloaded and ready to go!
