Ryan Oakley, lead singer of Bad Oak and heartthrob extraordinaire, isn’t looking for a girlfriend. He’s definitely not looking for a boyfriend, but after the explosive encounter he has with a guy he meets backstage, he realizes he’s more flexisexual than he’d thought. Of course, suddenly being able to shift into a wolf is an unexpected side effect he didn’t expect and can barely control.

Bardulf Forst is Alpha-Heir to his pack, but he can’t resist his little sister when she begs him to meet Ryan Oakley. When he realizes the sexy singer is his mate, he can’t deny instinct. He claims the famous rock star even though he knows his father won’t approve: heirs are supposed to have children and two males can’t reproduce.

Little do they know that they’re about to experience an ancient shifter biological imperative: when two male Alphas mate, unexpected miracles sometimes happen.



Redz World Reviews – 5 shooting stars! – “I liked the twists and turns of this modern werewolf story. Nothing is typical and I liked the surprises.”

Coffee Time Romance – 5 cups! – “I have to say that this is the most original shifter story I have read to date! The plot line is so detailed and well imagined that I found I could not put it down until I had read the very last page.”

Cocktails and Books – 4.5 stars! – “This is the love story of Ryan, a rock singer, and Bardulf, the Alpha Heir to his pack of wolf shifters.  They meet through a hilarious series of events, and the sparks fly right away…I mean REALLY fly.  I don’t want to give too much away, but what happens when the two of them are together for the first time is so primal and HOT that I had to take a break for a few minutes after I read it.”

Night Owl Reviews – Top Pick! – “…by the end of the first chapter, I could not wait to finish the book. The author did a good job of drawing the reader into her world.”

MM Good Book Reviews – 5 stars! – “Can’t wait to see what happen in the next book of the series, the characters from the band and the sister.  This is a must read start to a new series.”

GGR-Reviews – “I really loved this book! This is a fun ass book. There is a Sexy Alpha shifter and a Sexy Alpha Rocker and when these 2 got together, I got the sexy, the comedy and a great story.”

The Romance Reviews – 4 stars! – “What follows is a love story told in traditional Erin M. Leaf format. There’s plenty of spice, but it’s perfect for the storyline. Add some extra twists courtesy of the paranormal aspect, and the reader has a front row seat to some intense m/m action.”

A Paul B Review – 5 stars! – “While most of the male pregnancy stories center around either an alpha/omega or alien/human encounter, Ms. Leaf has centered hers around two strong alpha males (one the alpha-heir, the other the lead singer of a rock band) and makes that difference a key in the plot development.”

Open Skye Book Reviews – 4.5 stars! – “I just fell in love with this book. It was funny, moved along a good clip, had ROCKERS in it and it’s mpreg…”

Rainbow Book Reviews – 4.5 stars! – “I loved this book! It was sexy, romantic, had a lot of the shifter tropes that I enjoy, and added some new lore to my ever increasing stack, plus the birthing was probable enough to not have me rolling my eyes. *grins* I’m jumping straight into the next book.”

The world isn’t ready for a rock star werewolf, but Josh Oakley can’t stop biology. When his brother sends sexy wolf shaman Gerwulf to help him, instinct is too mild a word for how he feels. Gerwulf calls to his animal in a way that defies logic.

Gerwulf knows Josh is his mate the moment they meet, but he doesn’t like guys and he doesn’t intend to bond with anyone. He’ll help the musician control his wolf, but getting too close isn’t his intention. Besides, he wouldn’t know what to do with a man in his bed.

Of course, shifters can’t dodge fate—a crisis forces Josh and Gerwulf to accept their connection just in time to save Forst Pack from an old enemy. When biology ties them together beyond even a mating bond, will they be able to move past their fear and into a future that holds more than they ever expected?



GGR-Review – 5 stars! – “This book has it all, we have an angsty character pairing, a character attempting to bring harm to the Forst pack, magic, amazing sex (whew) and of course the romance and Mpreg.”

Cocktails and Books – 4.5 stars! – “The sex scenes are INSANELY hot, just like all sex scenes written by Erin Leaf. She really knows what she’s doing there, folks. Trust me. However, there is tenderness and love under all that heat, and that makes me heart beat a little faster.”

The Romance Reviews – 4 stars! – “ALPHA SHAMAN is full of action, romance, and yes, even grief.”

Love Bytes Reviews – 4.5 stars! – “I must say I enjoyed Alpha Shaman a lot more that I thought I would as I’ve never read an m-preg book before!”

Rainbow Book Reviews – 5 stars! – “I’m totally, 100 percent hooked on the ‘Bad Oak Boys’ series. Josh and Gerwulf were fabulous together, and again, I’m really enjoying the way the author is writing the mpreg portions of the stories. Definitely the most realistic of any in this trope that I have read so far.”

Coffee Time Romance – 5 stars! – “The romance between Josh and Gerwulf is hot enough to singe eyebrows, and the love scenes are emotional and sexy. The world building just keeps getting better and better, and it was so cool getting to see characters from the first book and how they are evolving along with the story line in this book.”

After years in the military, Wulfgang Marrok has had enough. He wants nothing more than to settle down into quiet normalcy and live out his life. Unfortunately, the moment he meets his music history professor, normal and quiet disintegrate beneath a sudden metaphysical connection he didn’t think was possible. His mother is a werewolf, but he didn’t inherit her abilities… until now.

Silas River desperately needs a break from life as Bad Oak’s drummer, so he dons a disguise and heads to a sleepy little town to teach music. Of course, life always fouls up the beat: the moment his fated mate walks into his classroom, his dormant wolf side wakes up and demands attention.

For shifters, instinct trumps solitude. Werewolf politics and violent enemies trump peace. Can Silas and Wulfgang’s new bond survive murder and a loss so deep that Silas almost destroys himself trying to soothe the pain?



The Romance Reviews – Top Pick! – “This is a smoothly paced and exceedingly well-written story, full of love, humour and angst, with characters that are well-rounded and delightful. … Absolutely and definitely recommended!”

Rainbow Book Reviews – 5 stars! – “So, so, so good! This was a more emotional but just as fantastic book in the series. The revelation at the end has left me salivating for Shane’s story. All in all, I couldn’t be happier to have discovered this wonderful series, and these amazing characters.”

Open Skye Book Reviews – 4.5 stars! – “There is a moment of true heart breaking sadness that will bring tears to your eyes, but the end is so beautiful and goes a long way toward making it better.”

Cocktails and Books – 4.5 stars! – “Silas and Wulfgang are amazing together.  Their chemistry is explosive.”

Love Bytes Reviews – 4.5 stars recommended read! – “The Bad Oak Boys series is getting better; the main characters are getting stronger along with their mates.”

Redz World Reviews – 5 stars! – “There is a TON of story inside this book. From pack politics, to learning how to be a werewolf, to just interpersonal relations. I will say Ms. Leaf does a great job of making me engaged and wanting to read more even with a ton going on.”

Shane River is the last of the Bad Oak boys to feel the pull of his animal trying to get out. Problem is, once he shifts, the wolf wants nothing more than to run far away… alone. He’s an Alpha Lone Wolf, and that means he doesn’t need a pack.

Tim Cooper thought his father was human. He wasn’t. He thought his werewolf mother could survive anything. She didn’t. He thought he’d never be able to shift, but he thought wrong, and the truth is more disturbing than anything he could’ve imagined.

When Shane finds Tim’s mother dying in the desert, he vows to track down the vicious wolf-coyote hybrids responsible for the attack. He doesn’t expect her son Tim: a hybrid who has no idea what he is. He doesn’t expect Tim’s animal to call to his wolf. And he certainly doesn’t expect to mate with a creature ravaged by grief, but when instinct howls, the wolf must obey.



Open Skye Book Reviews – 5 stars! –“I love this entire series and found this to be one of the best of the bunch. I thought there was a lot of emotional depth in this story and some tough considerations to be made concerning nature and nurture and vigilantism versus justice.”

Cocktails & Books – 4 stars! –“Shane and Tim are a couple worth rooting for.  They are both stubborn and powerful, and their road to a happily ever after isn’t smooth at all.”

Rainbow Book Reviews – “This is probably the most exciting and emotionally draining match-up in the whole series, and that’s saying a lot. But Shane and Tim are loners, they’re aggressive, they both like a little pain, and they’re falling in love.”

Love Bytes Reviews – 4.5 stars! – “I’ve enjoyed reading all four books in the Bad Oak Boys series because they’re not your run of the mill paranormal/werewolf m/m romance story’s.  . . . I have no hesitations in recommending this book and series!”

Redz World Reviews – 5 stars! – “I particularly like how Ms. Leaf brings a great connection to the characters. That is what brings me back to read more. I like the feeling of being invested in them. Over all a great series and really a must read.”

Rock star River has it all: fame, fortune, and forbidden witch power. So what if he’s lonely? He can always crash one of his cousins’ concerts for kicks—the Bad Oak boys are shifters, but River can hold his own when it comes to music. Yet when an explosive encounter with a fan triggers dormant werewolf genes, he must suddenly grapple with a bond he never expected with a wolf who ghosts him right after the music stops.

Werewolf Gregor Eutimo expects nothing but a fun night out when his sister drags him to a River concert, yet the moment he sees the man singing his heart out on stage, something wild clicks. A hot hookup with a rock star isn’t on his menu, but he can’t deny the mating instinct, not even when it means finally accepting his bisexuality. Not even when it means more power and love than he ever expected.


“I am partial to paranormal characters and just love this unexpected story in book 5 of the Bad Oaks series by Erin Leaf. … Five stars for such an entertaining book from the beginning to ending chapter.”

“Pick this up if you like 🌶 m/m romances with paranormal vibes (witch/werewolf) as well as rockstars.”

“This is my first time reading Erin M. Leaf, but it certainly won’t be my last.”

“Spirit River is an entertaining read, mixing witches and werewolves; and once I started reading I couldn’t put it down!”

“It’s been awhile since I have read the Bad Oak Boys series and oh my gosh I didn’t know how much I was missed them until I read River and Gregor’s story.”

“I am so glad that the author decided to write a fifth book in the bad oak boys series. I enjoyed the struggles River and Gregor had and dealing with the power of witches and wolf.”

“I binged read the series in preparation for this release, excited to get back in this world and these characters.”

“What a refreshingly different twist on the worlds of shifters, magic and rock stars.”
