Lucien Cummings
The pestilents are trying to kill him.

He’s pretty sure the Water Weaver wants to kill him as well.

But after two months of fighting an attraction for a man who couldn’t possibly be his mate, Lucien cracks when he’s pulled into an impulsive threesome with Calder and a sexy man they picked up in a bar.

That night was earth shattering.

And now he needs to figure out how to keep both men safe and his.

Calder Saito
Calder doesn’t want to fight his attraction for the Fire Weaver any longer, but they can’t really be soul mates, right?

And what about Gio? The sexy man gives him such a feeling of completeness and peace.

Could one man really have two soul mates?

Gio Russo
Can’t he just have them both?

Tangled Warriors is the fourth book in the Weavers Circle series. This MMM paranormal romance includes fast-paced action, running through Savannah, secrets, shapeshifting, kidnapping, deadly Girl Scouts, sexy times, insecurity, three crazy old ladies, soul mates, and magic!

I love this series, and how this book didn’t follow the previous stories of one weaver finding a human mate. I like how each book not only adds soulmates to the cast, but progresses the overall series story arc.

Gio’s enthusiasm for life is wonderful, and exactly what Lucien and Calder need. I like how they all bring something to the relationship. I liked how all three had their reasons to be reluctant to enter into the relationship. It felt very real, and added to their characters.

I love how Grey has it all sussed, but leaves them to figure it out themselves. The weavers, and their mates, as family is one of my favourite parts of this series. The world building is fabulous, dangerous, and fun too, and I like how the characters are all different in personality and magic. I also like how their abilities come with consequences, and are draining.

The plot is a great mix of tension, action, drama, and romance. I liked how they have to work for each advantage and that finding the missing weaver isn’t easy. It all comes together to show how much of a threat the bad guys are.

Gio’s family totally rock, and I love their reaction to everything.

I’m hanging out for the final book in the series now.

5 out of 5 stars.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
