Kelvin #5: MM Fated Mates (Tangled Tentacles) by J.P. Sayle and Lisa Oliver

It's Kelvin's turn to find his fated mate and we finally get to find out who's the big bad behind all that horrible things that have been happening to paranormals. 

From the blurb:

Book Five: Paranormal Gay Romance / Two Alphas / Fated Mates / Brothers Security Team / High angst / Surprise Reveal / High Steam / Lots of Tentacles/ Mpreg.

Fated mates find themselves drawn into a web of lies and deceit. Can they find the answers and protect those closest to them when danger lurks in the most unlikely of places?

Seeking answers to his sister’s disappearance two years before, FBI Special Agent Magnus Fallows will use all of the resources at his disposal. That includes Thalassa Security. Getting off on the wrong foot with the Thalassa family, Magnus struggles to figure out if there is anything the elusive Kelvin Thalassa is keeping from him.

For Kelvin Thalassa being in the field isn’t his area of expertise, yet he’ll do anything to find the answers and protect his growing family. Trust is becoming difficult, so Kelvin goes to a man who has had no issue pushing for answers─Agent Fallows. The last thing he expects is to find out that Magnus is his fated mate.

The search for Big Foot leads right back to an old nemesis: Andromeda. The battle is on to stop the heinous acts that have been happening right under the noses of the shifter council.

Kelvin #5 is a paranormal gay romance with a protective leopard who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth and a Kraken who learns strength comes in many forms. This is the fifth and final book in the Tangled Tentacles Series. HEA is guaranteed, and the Epilogue will hint at what is to come in the future for these two authors.

Jacquie's Review:

Kelvin neatly wraps up the running storyline of the series whilst also giving a spin off that I'm super excited about!

I adored Kelvin and Magnus together, especially since they didn't fight or delay their mating. They each put the other first, communicated, and valued the others' abilities.

Marvin though, he stole the show!

All the previous characters feature heavily and as this is the finale of the Tangled Tentacles series, it should be read in order.

I have honestly loved the entire series, and it's one I would re-read for sure.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

We've finally made it to the very last Kraken brother to find his fated! I'm sad because I've really enjoyed this entire series, but I'm also excited about what's in store for us next from these two fabulous authors. Fortunately, there's a little sneaky sneak in the back of this one to tide us all over for what is to come. But this review is about Kelvin and his fated mate, whom I am sure you are all aware by now we have met before and he didn't exactly make a great first impression on the brothers. Add into the fact that the family is already somewhat divided over Markov and his mate Cassius, you can see how Kelvin would be hesitant to bring his new man around the family. I'm looking at you Victor and Alexi.

Magnus, aka Mr. FBI guy, was very different from what I was expecting. Yes he can be gruff and abrasive, but his heart was in the right place. The man lost his beloved sister to the disgusting paranormal trafficker organization so you can say he is a bit overzealous in his need to end them once and for all. Kelvin, sweet man that he is, didn't spend a moment questioning fates decision for him. Magnus was his and that made Kelvin's work on the case even more important. These two were probably the quickest to bond if memory serves me right. No unnecessary drama, just thankfulness for fate giving them their one. It was a nice change of pace.

Major headway is made on the series long case and we finally find out the reason behind all the horrible things that have been going on. There are still some minor players on the board so I'm pretty positive this will be explored further. We also meet some new characters, one of whom is just the sweetest cinnamon roll ever. Marvin definitely stole my heart and I cannot wait to see more of him in the future *wink wink*.

Janet's Review:

Kelvin is the fifth and final book in the MM Fated Mates, Tangled Tentacles series. Freakin fantastic!! We finally get the ending with the mystery of who’s been taking the shifter and children and are introduced to a new spinoff series, which I’m sooo excited to read!! 

FBI Special Agent Magnus Fallows has been looking for his missing sister for two long years. He takes time off work to work on her case. Kelvin Thalassa is an accountant; he doesn’t do field work. When he shows up at Magnus’s home, they realize they’re fated mates. I didn’t see the insta-love coming! They go searching for Bigfoot and find him! The whole family helps to take down the bag guys!! 

This was an amazing read; we get more babies and an exciting new character to love!!! I seriously loved the found family and fated mated. 

Overall, a phenomenal ending to the series. Well written with pacing that hooked me and kept me reading well into the night!! Highly recommend!

Heather's Review:

The mystery is solved, the brothers are all mated and we witness the pitter-patter splash of even more offspring for the Thalassa brothers and this time it's Kelvin who finds and connects with his mate and finally gets a chance to do some legwork on the long running plot thread that has kept me coming back for more every book...

This one is an instant connect and almost instantaneous fit, despite the long history of animosity and tension... the romance is sweet and steamy, but the true meat in this story lies in what (and who) the two men uncover and how all the pieces fit together to solve the mystery portion of the book.

I'm also loving the tease of the spin-off series and I'm hoping we get the first book with Marvin's story soon!  This book needs to be read in order to understand the thread of continuity from first to last in the series.

Angel's Review:

I'm so sad that this is the last book that we're getting that features the Thalassa brothers. I'm going to miss them and their antics. 

For the last and final book, we finally get Kelvin's story, and his mate Magnus, who is the FBI agent they've been corresponding with. Magnus irritates Kelvin. He's demanding, rude, and arrogant. When these two meet in person, all of those feelings go away. They find out they're mates as soon as they see each other. From there they continue on the journey on trying to figure out who's behind all of the shifter abductions and killings. We get more information, more clues, and even more secrets that come out in the open. 

I, for one, love the mystery component that is the main overarching plot that continues through each of these books. It's so well written that I can't even predict what is going to happen next. But I'm so excited to find out more. Once I start reading one of these books I can't put them down. And I needed to know who was behind it all. 

*Spoiler* we finally get to know who was behind it all, and why. 

Just like with the previous books, this is well written, has excellent characters, great background detail, and wonderful pacing. I love getting introduced to all the new characters that get brought into the story. They all add something to the overall storyline. They are there for a reason. I love, love, loved Marvin! I really hope he's going to get his own story at some point. He deserves it. Plus, he really intrigues me. I'm really looking forward to what's coming next by these two authors. I'm hoping we can still see and catch glimpses of the Thalassa brothers. 

Overall, a really excellent way to end a fantastic series, plus I think this book has even more tentacles.
