I liked that she didn't fight Alistair on being his mate. The drama was just how I like it, from outside sources and had NOTHING to do with OW/OM!- no cheating - no ow/om drama whatsoever (view spoiler)[ there was a comment made by Os, the VP, that I wasn't crazy about, saying "are we sharing this one" in reference to the heroine. Could have done without that. I'm sure it was the authors way of setting off the hero to show his devotion towards the heroine. Thankfully we didn't see any of that throughout the story (hide spoiler)]- no pushing away-great secondary characters that we didn't have to see with others- no club whores -club violence- great epilogue 12 YEARS in the future- I was so thrilled

    Great start to a new series with an interesting PNR spin. The only reason this is 4 stars instead of 5 is that sometimes I was lost in the world building. Maybe it’s just me, but I felt lost during some of the conversations used to do this. I am really looking forward to Jagger and Tess’s story as vampires are my favorite.

    I'm struggling to find words once again. But probably I should say what I'm saying always with all Esthers books. She hit jackpot again with her first book in new series. I love paranormal romance. Add MC aspect and I'm in heaven. Or more correctly I'm in hell and having lots of fun with hellhounds. If you read paranormal, you need to forget everything you learned about this world. Because, Esther brings her own dose of magic. It's something new and fresh. And I can't wait for more of it.

    I don’t normally read paranormal stories but I’ve got faith in this author and as it’s her first paranormal story I thought I’d give it a go. I’m so glad I did as this was a brilliant read. As I read quite a bit I crave unique storylines and this is what the author gave me with a cherry on top. I absolutely loved the MC aspect of it.I’m so looking forward to reading more in this series. The author has brought her own uniqueness to this story and I’m craving more already.

    "Hellhounds" was a pulse thumping paranormal MC story from the start! It begins as Alistair and Eliana's story but immediately I discovered that Eliana's sister, Velma and Osias aka Os, also were to be mated in this engaging, fast-paced story. The main hero, Alistair was the President of Death by Reaper MC, Hell Chapter and Os was the second hero. They were tasked by 'The Orderly' to take a soul around the corner but were told to basically "roll of the dice."

It begins as Alistair and Eliana's story but immediately I discovered that Eliana's sister, Velma and Osias aka Os, also were to be mated in this engaging, fast-paced story. The main hero, Alistair was the President of Death by Reaper MC, Hell Chapter and Os was the second hero. They were tasked by 'The Orderly' to take a soul around the corner but were told to basically "roll of the dice." They see two human around that corner and they stiff, one has a good soul and the other rotten to the core drunk guy who probably was planning on having sex with the other, but that good soul, a shapely women in a hoodie is none other than Alistair's true mate! Os handled the drunk with the bad soul, while Alistair finds out the the woman's name is Eliana and immediately kiss and bites her neck as she shamelessly allows it because their attraction for one another is so strong. Alistair knows what's going on but Eliana was a clueless human so he has to blow smoke in her face (which knocks her out) to make her not go and catch her train for home. Eliana wakes up in a strange setting and calls her half sister who is a Guardian and from there the story takes off and fast... with Os also biting Velma thus two romances in one story!“The job was ‘roll of the dice’. I was given the choice to claim my mate or to take her soul.” I harden my voice so they have no doubt what the job has been from the start, and I just now realize this shit. “We either fight together or wipe them all out.” - AlistairNow what happens next involves mating that damages two rooms in the MC, a mystery of who are 'The Orderly' and of another half sister or more, fate, half-witch, a new world order and hilarious drama in some parts of the tale!! “The Orderly. That’s what they are called, and they are interfering, sis. By leaving it to Alastair’s MC to clean up the mess. Every one of us functions in a way where we leave it up to the soul in question to change, act, or evolve. Free will and all that. Clearly our father chose his own path, one that wasn’t the right choice, and there will be consequences.”- Velma For me this story only proves that author, Esther E. Schmidt can not only write and craft intriguing contemporary MC novels but also the funny and sexy paranormal MC tales as well with more humor, sexy heat and even more twists and turns~!Book 2 of this series will be entitled "More Death by Reaper MC - Jagger & Tess’ story.5 "MC Hell vs MC Heaven" stars *****

    Alistair is a President of the Death by Reaper MC and what makes him unusual is the fact that he is a Hellhound shifter who reaps the souls of evil people. At times he is given a choice on if they will live or if he will take their souls. When he is assigned to two souls he doesn't expect to find a mate, his mate. He never thought he would have a mate but when he sees Eliana he knows he is not going to let her get away.Elaina has never felt wanted but with Alistair she feels treasured.

How will the standoff between good and evil unfold?This was great and different for this author. I loved how the story unfolded and the little hints into possible future books. Alistair is a definite alpha male and Elaina is a spitfire who is a perfect match. I thought all the characters were fascinating and am looking forward to seeing what is next in this series. Unique.

Alistair, Hellhound shifter and President of the Death by Reaper MC Hell Charter is on a job that can be a roll of the dice...little does he know he is about to meet his mate. Eliana has been aware of the paranormal world but has no idea of all her connections to it or that her mate is anything but human! "A true mate is one in a million, a connection that's mutual, a pull you only feel once in your life and know the second it hits."When these two come together, it's explosive!As the story unfolds, we learn more about Eliana - things even she didn't realize about herself. "Great, now I feel like a recipe on Pinterest I need to try"Being the first book in a new series we are given a lot of information and several characters are introduced. This was done in a great way and at no point did I feel I needed to get out pen and paper to try to keep track! I can't wait for the next story.

    Esther E.Schmidt has been a favorite of mine since the beginning. While I am not a paranormal fan, I wanted to read Hellhounds because she wrote it.I’m still not a paranormal fan, but I REALLY LIKED THIS BOOK. The way she was able to blend the MC world with the Paranormal world made the story flow seamlessly. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

A unique spin on the battle of good and evil. I loved it. I got sucked in learning more and more about these Hellhounds, then all Hell breaks loose when one takes a mate, then another does. The story that unfolds after had me glued to my Kindle. The mix of supernatural beings was great! In true Esther fashion she leaves us First off I am a huge paranormal fan!

    Let me start off by saying that I am a huge Esther E. Schmidt reader... I've read all of her published work to date. With that being said I am not normally a PNR reader... But HOLY HELLHOUND does she knock this one out of the park. Not that I expected any less from this author, but damn, she's going to end up turning me into a PNR reader in no time, or maybe it will just be her PNR books. Not only is this a Paranormal book but you have the aspects of an MC (which is my all-time favorite genre). Let me start off by saying that I am a huge Esther E. Schmidt reader...

If you read MC and not much into Paranormal, pick up this book, I promise you will not be disappointed. Miss Schmidt has the ability to write a new genre that will completely suck you in and not let go. I personally cannot wait to see where she takes the Death by Reaper Series next.

But when he’s ordered to do said job and pick 2 to reap, he is faced with the challenge he wouldn’t accept: taking away his mate. Even as a “human” she attracts him in aways he’s never felt before.Elaina has always felt like an outsider. She’s never been accepted in the way she deserved to be. A few months before her meeting Alistair for the first time she discovered she had a half sister. Little did she know, her sister is a supernatural being as well. What’s even worse is finding out her unknown father has had something to do with the command to take her soul. Thankfully what she finds with Alistair is a connection that is unheard of and undeniable. She has the chance at a real life where she can be the best of who she is.But in order for either one of them to make sense of any of it they have to conquer their demons. Literally! Their fated mates for a reason, and they will discover why soon. The whole family gets involved and from there everything becomes earth shattering and chaotic. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially one that can throw down and battle like no other.I was blown away by the depth of each of the characters and their full ability to just grab you and pull you into their story. Never mind the fact that there was a whole lot of paranormal goodness that I had not expected. For this being a first time genre for the author I’d have to say its a winner! Awesome book!

Her technique is found in all of her books and makes her books exciting to read. This story line is intriguing as it deals with the balance between good and evil and has the Guardian's and Hellhounds not just a group of immortals who get their orders Paranormal AND a MC??

Schmidt has a wonderful ability to get the leads hooked up right away and taking the story line off like a shot from a gun. Her technique is found in all of her books and makes her books exciting to read. This story line is intriguing as it deals with the balance between good and evil and has the Guardian's and Hellhounds not just a group of immortals who get their orders to intervene or to take a soul, but puts them into the life of a MC, and these MC's are more bad-ass than any that you have ever read before. The story line is like nothing I've read before which only adds to this book's appeal. The characters are exceptionally well written, giving way to not only one male and female lead, but two as you have Alistair (the president of the Death by Reaper MC Hell Chapter) and Os (his VP), and their mates Eliana (who is part human, part Hellhound ) and her half-sister Velma who is a Guardian. When these four meet, it's instantly known to the males that the females are their mates (well Velma recognizes Os are her mate as well). And when they take their mates...it's combustible..literally! A truly fantastic way to begin a new series and I so thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. I cannot wait to see what happens next in this new series! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves paranormal reads and MC reads. The two together will have you in reading heaven.

    Paranormal/MC - does it get any better than that? Only if the author of the said Paranormal MC book has an amazing style of writing, which anyone that has read her works knows Esther Schmidt has. Holy cow this is one awesome book. It spans both the heaven and hell chapters of the Death by Reaper MC’s with both human and paranormals in the casting mix. Alastair is the Prez of the Hell chapter. He is sent to earth on a mission to take a Soul given the odd instructions of “roll of the dice”. In oth Paranormal/MC - does it get any better than that?

He is sent to earth on a mission to take a Soul given the odd instructions of “roll of the dice”. In other words he was given a choice as to what to do with the two souls in the alley he was sent to. One is a dude the other a woman. What does he do and why? His choice, once made, is it the right one or the wrong one? I could go into so much detail to the storyline but this book is a Must Read (IMHO) and spoiling it would just be wrong. So I’ll simply state that Ms. Schmidt has outdone herself with Hellhounds. Not only with the amazing storyline but with the characters. Both the bad ones you want to hate and hope they get what’s coming to them as well as the good guys who will sneak into your heart and have you rooting for their success and HEA. I offer you 2 Thumbs Up and highly encourage you to one click this book ASAP. It’s a super start to what I foresee as a terrific series! If it were allowed this is what I would term a 10 Star Paranormal MC read!

I cannot wait to see what the rest of this series brings to the table. Seriously, this PRN book blew me away. I have never read another book like it. The plot and characters were completely original and a breath of fresh air. Esther's take on heaven and hell and all PRN beings were unique. It opened up so many other plots she could spin after this story. Dominate alpha Hellhound Alistair has no hope that he would meet his mate Eliana when he was assigned a kill order by the Order. For Alistair, it was just another job. The moment he breathed in her scent he knew she was his entire world. The only issue was she is human. Or is she? I loved how there was something there that he knew made her more not less. Eliana just had to let her mate and sister help her discover who she truly was. This story plays on what one would think would be evil and would be good. It an eye opener that just because you assume someone is good they may not be. Alistair and Eliana's story is a fun ride that you need to read. I am excited to see where Esther leads us in book 2 of the Death by Reaper. Man, I could ramble on and on about this book. Go one-click! You know you want to.

    No messing about here it is straight in with the heat, first sight first scent. Both characters recognise the pull to each other, Eliana without really understanding what it means at first. This is paranormal at its best and mixed up, I love how many different species turn up. I also like how though it is serious there are light moments that made me grin and chuckle a bit, it made it seem real somehow in amongst the crazy and imaginative concept. I really cant wait to read more of these guys and No messing about here it is straight in with the heat, first sight first scent.

This author has never written a bad story yet and this is no exception, I could have carried on reading for many more hours and not got bored. I truly felt the flames and the heat and wanted more.

    I read paranormal often and this was like nothing I have ever read. The story was fast paced and full of action. Readers were introduced to a world where supernatural creatures from Heaven and Hell work to keep the world in balance. As readers we come to question what is really good and evil. At the same time we are given a love story that is scorching hot. I have read all of Esther Schmidt's stories and feel as though this one in particular is a big departure from what she normally writes.

Alistair and Eliana are the main couple featured. Alistair is deliciously alpha to his core. Eliana is independent & courageous. Together they are the other half of each other. Since it is the first in the series, this book introduces up to a cast of characters I can't wait to read more of!

I loved how she gave me my OTT Alpha as well as strong females in the book. I loved the relationship between Alistair and Eliana and I especially loved Os and Velma relationship. The first sex scene with the characters was Explosive in more ways then one(you will understand when you read the book WHICH YOU SHOULD!!) I definitely would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. I cant wait for more of the Death by Reaper MC especially finding out more about the sisters and getting more of Esther's OTT Alphas which I love in all her books!!!!

    This was not like any other paranormal book I’ve read before (and I read a lot). I thought going in it would be the typical shifter wolf/dog book. I was very wrong, they are shifters but not what you typically read about. They turn into these beasts with two heads with their bodies surrounded by fire. I liked how they were given jobs handed down by a higher power. The story follows Alastair and Eliana but you get to see two other characters come together so it’s kinda a two for one deal.

It’s still like Esther’s other books in the way it’s a safe read; no cheating, instalove, and alpha males but with so much more. This was Esther’s first paranormal book and I think she hit it out of the park.

    Love this book! I couldn't put this story down. Esther E. Schmidt did a FANTASTIC job on this book. Especially being her first paranormal story. This is a wonderful start to the Death by Reaper MC series. Hellhounds was very well written and had a great story plot and great characters. Loved Alistair and Eliana. They are perfect. Both are strong powerful badasses. This mated pair had a powerful connection and the chemistry was Sizzling Hot. This is a Amazing book. I really enjoyed it. I highly r Love this book!

    This is the first book in what is going to be another amazing series. This is not my usual preferred genre, but I am so grateful that I took a chance on this paranormal romance. Alistair is the president of the MC, and one look at Eliana, and he knows that this is his true mate. This story has humorous banter, and is a unique and gripping storyline. I was hooked and captivated from the very beginning, and look forward to reading more in this series.

    I'll start off by saying I don't read a whole lot of paranormal but have found a few that I liked. I think Esther has gone above and beyond with this book! I'm a huge fan of Esther E. Schmidt, I've read all of her books so when I seen she was writing this one, I HAD TO READ IT! I wasn't disapointed at all with this book. Alistair and Eliana are easy to fall in love with! I loved these characters along with Os, Velma, and the rest of the Hellhounds!
