The Billionaire Shifter's Virgin Mate (Billionaire Shifters Club, #2)
McDermott "Derry" Stanton is an old-money playboy who sleeps his way through half the world, one willing woman at a time.A bear shifter, he never hibernates alone. Sometimes even one woman isn't enough.But when this irresistible billionaire meets Jessica Murphy, everything changes. The man who views life as a female feast suddenly acquires more discerning tastes. The only woman who can satisfy him now...Is Jessica Murphy. He must have her. Immediately. Frequently.Jess, however, doesn't want any man, least of all a spoiled playboy who's about to become her brother-in-law. A pre-med student with deep ambitions and a past filled with painful rejection, she's all business.Too bad Derry Stanton is her business. A frequent customer at the Platinum Club where she waits tables, and now the best man to her maid of honor in her sister's wedding, the guy is everywhere.And pretty soon, she finds herself everywhere, too.In his arms, on his bed, between the sheets....But sex is the last thing she needs. Or it was until she meets Derry and starts hearing the Beat. And feeling a connection she'd never imagined, never dreamed, never hoped for.It's all too unbearably good.* * *The Billionaire Shifter's Virgin Mate is the second book in the Billionaire Shifters Club series by Diana Seere, the paranormal pen name for two New York Times and USA Today bestselling romantic comedy authors.

Mostly because it just wasn't romantic imho.Overall it wasn't predictable, it was a odyssey from the H being a total ASSHAT little whiny boy, to a guy whose been perpetually underestimated by his own family... well that's not surprising since his family is a group of manho jerks.

Anyways,Derry is the biggest manho of the family (which is saying something) and somehow the author does manage to steer us away from that fact by the halfway mark. But for the first part of the book it is rubbed in your face (and thereby the h's) incessantly. The ultimate entitled rich boy.Then he believes what a liar (who he knows is a liar) when she spouts crap about the h?? He constantly makes her feel belittled without even trying because he is so self absorbed.Really this guy just never endears me to his 'plight'; The poor misunderstood rich boy who perpetuates the caricature his family perceives him to be.FINALLY they get together ( I still don't understand why except that it's some kinda fated mating crap thing) and now it's their damn families throwing wrenches into the works!Overall I HATED EVERY LAST CHARACTER in this book (except for maybe the h who was just kinda OK).I don't like the type of H the author writes. There seems to be a common theme of the weak minded guy who thinks women are either family or a sexual object. Then when the h sees this character flaw in them, they get all boo-hoo why doesn't she love my awesome self. Then they get all maudlin and "I must suck because she thinks I suck'. Overall I felt like he would always be 'sloppy seconds' and there was nothing special he had to offer her cause there was no place in his apartment (or most of the city) that he hadn't already F'd some other skank on.On the bright side, I did like Jess. I also felt that by the end, what's his face, did only see her her and wasn't tempted to stray anymore. (not that he doesn't try in the beginning... 'roll my eyes')It was just tiring....

    I was seriously surprised at the way this played out, so I had to put it aside at the 20% because there was several things that put me off in the worst way, so I can't and I won't. 1. Manho hero 2. Other women (yes, plural) 3. Yes, contact with those other women. 4. Oh yes, more than just kissing. 5. Did I mention it's in front of the heroine? 6. AFTER they have their first kiss? All of this in the first few chapters. Um, No. Just. No.

    Jess and Derry, They are both so unique and interesting in their own way but put them together and you can just see the sparks fly. Their story is one I fell into and was happy to visit, (did not want to end) This shifter wold is so complex and diverse that it just captures the reader and we are happy it does not let go. It is so much more than just a story about two amazing individuals finding the other half that makes them whole it is about family and ties that bind us all.

    I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Jess and Derry's story is a satisfying addition to the series. At first glance, these two seem like polar opposites--the reserved virgin and the happy-go-lucky manwhore--but there is something definitely there. What they have to figure out is whether or not they are the One for each other, or just a scorchingly hot fling.

It is nothing for him to take 3 to 4 women home a night. When reading about Derry’s life I had to think what a tiresome and lonely life that must of been. Sure he had tons of women and he was some what close to his siblings. But he did not have that one person that would love him for who he truly was. Not one person that knew his heart and his secrets. Jessica Murphy was a force not to be messed with. The moment she laid eyes on Derry she knew she was in trouble. She did not need this type of trouble in her life. She could lose her job. She was trying to get through med school and would a playboy really want a virgin like her?I loved the song and dance these two went through. It was like reading about some type of mating dance. My heart actually broke for them as well. Seem like these two will have to battle the world by themselves. Though fate was for them it was like the world was not. I got mad at Derry and Jessica’s family. They should of been happy for them not trying to tear them apart at every corner. It did not seem like one person was supportive of these two. When reading this story you will want to reach in the book and slap a few people around. Asher who was Derry’s older brother really angered me. He seems to hate humans. I do not care what he went through in his past it does not give him the right to act the way he did in the story. He was a hateful, full of anger, bitterness, resentment, and was just a miserable person. It seemed he wanted everyone around him to be miserable as well. Yeah, I did not like him to much.Starting out I did not like Derry’s sister Sophie but by the time the story was over I truly loved Sophie and Derry’s younger brother Edward. Derry will end up in a dark place and will need these two more then he truly knows. I love how protective Derry was of Jessica. It truly pained him to see her hurting and when things are looking dark he will do what ever it takes to save their relationship. I truly liked him for that. This was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

You have to really read this book. But if you have not read the first one yet I highly suggest you so you will know they back story first. Plus it's just really good reads. Cannot wait for Asher's, Edward's and Sonja(Derry's twin ) books come out. I believe Asher book comes out Nov 15th.

Derry doesn’t understand it but can’t deny it, he wants and needs Jess but will obstacles get in the way? Loved the story, plot, characters, although this is about Derry and Jess it also centres around the whole family, at Lilah and Gavins wedding. We see more of the Stanton’s and where the series can go. I have to admit Lilah, her mother and Asher really got all my nerves but you need the angst. Lots of banter, great loving moments, hot sexy moments and overall a great story.

Two curvy sisters, one a virgin, and two shifter brothers, a wolf and a bear, are the Ones for each other.

    Fate and family This story will keep you on the edge of your seat from the beginning until the end as it is so intriguing. The author did an amazing job that pulls the reader into the story with all the drama, sexy scenes and twists. I didnt want it to end as I couldn't get enough of Derry and Jess. I like the way Marilyn was portrayed as the mama bear even though she is human. This series is a definite must read.

    Derry and JessThis is the second book in The Shifters Club series and the reader is introduced to Derry and Jess. Derry is a bear shifter and Gavin's younger brother and Jessica is Lilah's younger sister. With Gavin and Lilah already mates it is a surprise for the families to realize that McDermott (Derry) and Jessica (Jess) are also mates! This book is a standalone novel but also part of the Stanton Family series. A great 👍 edition to the series!

    Really enjoyed this book. I liked the different take on the shifter universe. There are some well drawn characters that really inspire strong emotion (can I just say I hate Archer?!) I liked both main characters and I think the author’s did a good job developing character and creating depth. I do wish I’d read book one first as I think I would have felt a bit more clued in on this family dynamic. Will probably go back and read that book before going on to book three at some point.

    Great...but......I really enjoyed this book. A likable bad boy, a beautiful and smart heroine/mate......but this book left too many unanswered questions. I so t know if it is intentional to the continued storyline of the series or what. The book, the birthmark, his dream, her dreams.....for me this was a cliffhanger and I didn’t like it. So it for 4 instead of 5.

    OK read, however I preferred the 1st sequel more, I love derry in this book bless his heart, he didn't get much support from his siblings, I love all the characters, but this story seemed to be missing something, also is Jerry a shifter? It doesn't say, her birthmark disappears but nothing else, derry says she's stronger than she thinks or realise but is she a shifter like her sister who knows...maybe its covered in the next book.
