    Wizards and werewolves, oh yeah!I really liked this. It was pretty short (71 pages), so it did have a feeling of being underdeveloped, but less than I expected for a story of this length.Jay is a wizard attending wizarding college for the first time. Because he was home schooled his entire life he has no idea he is way more powerful than any other wizard. He tries not to show how much power he has, but he has a feeling he screws that up a lot, considering all the shocked looks he gets whenever he does magic.When Jay is having dinner with his roommates he runs into a big hunk of a man. This man turns out to be a werewolf. This werewolf Thomas cannot believe his luck of running into his fated mate! He is never letting this cute wizard go.The romance is a whirlwind one and there’s a lot of MINE and growling. All very much the way I like it.I really liked this world. There is a 3 headed dragon, some cute wizard friends, gnomes and a very protective pack of werewolves.

    If you have read Amber Kell's stories before, you'll know that her stories are pretty much carbon copies of one another. Similar type of characters (one brat or loose-sweet and one grumpy possessive Alpha). There is nothing new in this as well. They met, the Alpha says, "You're my Mate, nothing you can do about it". They bond. They mate. End of story. That alone, for stories, I will only give it 2 starsBUT, the difference with this one is the wizard characters. Hey, it's like reading gay Harry Potter (with wolf mate!). And the house-gnomes remind me of Harry's elves. The story at the school is the best. From showing off the talent with potion and calling avatars. Those contribute to the additional stars

    This series definitely starts off with a bang in this first installment of 'A Wizard's Touch'. Just imagine Harry Potter going to college after years of home schooling, not knowing how powerful he is, and missing some of the basic "wizard etiquette" because he has spent his life at home. Jaynell is much like his famous namesake, only all grown up and even more powerful, but there are several intriguing differences as well, both in his character and in the world Amber Kell has created here. I always enjoy learning the "rules" of a new universe, and this one had me fascinated. Wizard / werewolf couples are just such tremendous fun!Jaynell has a harrowing history that has made him not only an extremely powerful wizard, but also very lonely. He can do spells some of his professors are unable to comprehend, and the college quickly realizes there isn’t much they can teach him. I loved that he spoke the Gnome language and got them on his side just by being nice to them. Turns out, that was pretty useful, and not just because he has dozens of them applying to take care of his dorm room for him. What Jaynell finds really difficult to deal with is Thomas – the werewolf who claims to be his mate. All he wants is some no-strings sex, but Thomas has different ideas!Thomas is a very strong werewolf who really should be the alpha of his pack, except he has no interest whatsoever to lead. He is also the younger brother, so luckily, that responsibility falls to James. They do quibble about who really is the alpha occasionally, but Thomas is so unassuming, there isn’t a real problem. The one area Thomas will not allow anyone to interfere in is where his mate is concerned. The magic leaves him more or less unimpressed, but he does like the occasional convenience such as instant magical clothes cleaning when needed.With some serious insta-love, a villain from a somewhat unexpected corner, fast-paced action once the gloves come off, and wonderful "magical" details, this is a fun story that made me laugh. If you like stories about wizards who find themselves unexpectedly mated to possessive werewolves, if you enjoy reading about men who need to figure out who the alpha is in their relationship and find that surprisingly easy, and if you're looking for a light, entertaining read, then you will probably like this novella.NOTE: This book was provided by Pride Publishing for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

    2.5 stars. Ok m/m paranormal romance about a wizard arriving at wizard college after the death of his father and meeting a very forceful werewolf... This definitely drew a lot of inspiration from Harry Potter.

    **Grammar**I must say that I was surprised by this book. I loved both the MCs and also the secondary ones were really nice. The story was interesting with a bit of mystery and also if many questions still don't find their answers, they sure will in the next books of the series.Jay, our 25 years old virgin and powerfull wizard, was sweet, cute and smart and also(let's be sincere) a pushy bottom XDThomas our big, "bad" wolf, was damn sexy and I loved his jealousy and possessiveness,that, made him even hotter. When they were together in bed, let's say that summer heat was nothing compared to them. The fact that Jay was a virgin and Thomas had never been a bottom and they weren't scared of trying any position, did make it worth reading :pThe plot was well written, and there was some angst, but also if the story was a bit short and maybe it went too fast, still the author was able to keep my interest and not only with the sex scenes, but with the chemistry btw our chars.

    The difference between this book and those I usually rate with 3 stars is the humor. It's pretty funny, something I love in Amber Kell's books. Now the rest of the book was kind of rushed, but what bothered me the most was the input of information. There was just so much going on without even a pause to take a breath. Another thing was the stiffness. Am I the only one who noticed? You have a bunch of these funny situations and comebacks but it's like robots are participating and saying them. The only one who looked somewhat alive was Thomas and then again, when the story was from his POV you couldn't really see it. The story is filled with elements you've probably read in some other books, but here they are all jumbled together. Expect the classics -- love at first sight, smell and feel, 'you're mine', forever bond, blood exchange and all that usual stuff. If you don't mind it, which a lot of us don't considering how many similar books we actually read, you might like this one.

    A very exciting beginning to a new series by the talented, Amber Kell. I will be very interested to see where this goes, although I'd love to see more of Jay and Thomas.Jay is a wicked powerful wizard and he's lucky to have Thomas as his werewolf mate. The drama and the "bad guy" were kind of predictable, but I still enjoyed the story. Oh, and these two were pretty hot together!

    My first foray back into original fiction after gorging on fanfic and what a big frigging disappointment. Deleting the rest of the series from my Kindle and rethinking my reading choices since almost 100% of the fanfic I've recently read was far more professionally written than this clunky mess.

    The story is to bland to simple set. The bonding is to fast and the plot is just boring. I definitely wont read that book again. Not recommended in my point of view !!

    Loved it. Wished it was longer. Completely fell for both men. As for the being rushed...I didn't think so. It was fast, but if you were Thomas, and realized your one and only mate was standing right in front of you...You'd go full steam ahead to secure him by your side. To make sure you didn't miss your only chance at happiness. And really...how much more build up can you get in a short story. I thought it was sweet that Thomas didn't immediately want to make the bond permanent, and gave Jay a way out.

    I'm giving this a 3.5 more for the original concept - werewolves and wizards - than the actual plot. I liked the characters but thought the whole thing just moved too fast and had no emotional hooks whatsoever.

    The plot was pretty childish. It's as if Amber wrote this when she was in eighth grade and tweaked it a bit and had it published.

    Enjoyable characters and really nice story, I liked this book and have downloaded the rest of the series to read it. The plot was well written and characterisation fine, I do find a lot of these books short reads but still they are good to have in your library when you want something that won't take too long to read and is still fun to read. Recommend readers of shifter-magic books read, others who want something different and not too taxing.

    “Wow” is the first word that comes to mind after reading Jaynell’s Wolf by Amber Kell. I was thoroughly entranced. I have always enjoyed Amber Kell’s stories and Jaynell’s Wolf was no different. Amber Kell has a talented imagination and she knows how use it!I enjoyed the instant attraction between Jay and Thomas. Jay’s slight fear of being bonded again to someone was evident but the love he feels for Thomas outweighs that fear. I liked that Thomas was willing to let Jay work though those fears without being demanding. Thomas easily won me over when he freely admitted that his mate was just as much Alpha as any wolf. Jay has an infectious personality that wins over not only Thomas’ Alpha and brother, but everyone around him. Except one. And that is a battle Jaynell has to fight with the help of his pack and new friends.Jaynell’s Wolf is a fast-paced enjoyable read, a delightful mix of romance, humor and magic, with enough reality to make it all believable. I love the magic in Amber’s books. I am very much looking forward to reading more of A Wizard’s Touch series. If Jaynell’s Wolf is anything to go by, the whole series promises to be extremely entertaining. And if the next one is about the two I hope it is, then it should prove to be just as good or even better than Jaynell’s Wolf. This is definitely one of those series where you can be sucked into the lives and loves of all the characters easily.Reviewed by Theresa

    Jaynell's father has died and part of his last wishes was that Jaynell attend the wizard college even though at 24 he's older than most students. His first day, he runs into a werewolf, literally. Thomas tells him he's his mate, and even though wizards and wolves don't mix, he's determined they'll work it out. However he is willing to give Jay time to adjust to the concept, and much of the book is Jay getting used to just being on his own finally, dealing with the massive amounts of wizard power he has, and coping with life as an independent man of sorts. When his former tutor kills his house elves and threatens him to gain his power, he fully mates with Thomas to fight back. I noticed someone said this is like gay Harry Potter in university and it is in a way. There is the snotty guy, who thinks he's better, the smart friendly female student, good friends/roommates, the evil professor, house elves (gnomes). Avatars (aka more solid patronuses), but on the whole it's good fun and kind of takes a cheeky look at things with a fair amount of humour. Its the first in a series and I would definitely check out more. It's good when you need a light read with some familiar themes and likable, but stereotypical characters.

They're so cute together.I just loved that Jay was so sweet and fearless, at the same time.I think that everything happened so fast that I'm still waiting to read a litle bit more... about Jay and Thomas, werekin and wizards...I'm looking foward to read the sequel: Kevin's alpha.:-)

    If you love Amber Kell, you will really like this offering. I liked her Moon Pack series, but this is much better. It is written in her normal, quick style - a lot happening, funny quotes from characters and the famous "your mine!" quote. A lot of her stories, have very familiar themes running through them - man meets his mate, their is no discussion it happens!, but that is why I like her books, I know what I am getting every time, she doesn't try to be so be something she's not. The book spec covers the book well, so I won't repeat. I don't find these books over graphic, but if you want a sweet, wholesome m/m books, these may not be to your taste, so be warned. Off to get the next book in this series now. Recommended.

    3.5 StarsI really enjoyed this. Wizards, wolves, gnomes, avatars, potions, and more :) How can you NOT like that. I really liked Jay (view spoiler)[I almost kind of wish he would have put James in his place at times. Also, it would have liked to have seen him use his magic at full power. I am obsessed with Mage's so it would have been nice to see more magic being use by him instead of just talking about it.(hide spoiler)] . Thomas didn't really do much for me though for some reason. My only complaints are that it ended too soon (87%). I wanted more about what happened AFTER. And, the POV changes mid scene. Talk about annoying.

    This would have been a great book if it wasn't so damn short! Too many things are happening in a bit over 60 pages and it drove me insane :DThe main character goes from reluctant to be claimed as a mate to very enthusiastic about it waaaaaay to suddenly (after taking a moment or two to imagine a future together). That made me roll my eyes.The story squeezes in dragons, werewolves, gnomes and ... umm... triplets (!) in a wizards university. Plus pack politics, several bonding ceremonies, summoning of avatars and an evil power hungry wizard.I really liked the gnomes :)Some people might find this story a bit over the top, but I had fun reading it.

    This was a fairly average love story in terms of plot. Two protagonists meet and poof find insta-love which is believable because one is a wolf shifter. Then a bad guy shows up and kidnaps the main character, only to be defeated and giving the protagonists a HEA. For how short it is, I felt that the author could definitely have spent more time on character/world building and less time trying to cram a textbook plot line onto her fairly creative character base.

    Seriously? @[email protected] Didn't care for the plot, didn't care for MCs, didn't care for dialog, didn't care for pretty much anything. Flipped through the pages until the very end only because I was curious whether there was any angst at all in the book. And yes, there was. For like two and a half pages at the very end (not counting dead gnomes, exterminated like carpenter ants in great numbers). 1 star.

    I loved the story. I would give this 5 stars on the story alone but the deliver was just a tad dissapointing. A few times, I didn't realize til mid sentence that there wad a POV change. The end seemed really rushed. I really would love to see this longer not by much but some stuff just really needed to be flushed out.

    Let me start by saying I just fucking loved how jaynell was so freaking powerful it was like so much good to see a strong character who isn't annoying or don't know how to use or even better when he's stupid enough to get his power stolen. It was so fucking refreshing I just wanted to express my sincere gratefulness.
