    1. I liked this for the same reasons I really enjoyed Book one. It's a shifter/paranormal police story that also provides a nuanced, honest look at some of the issues surrounding actual differences in power (as opposed to consensual power exchange). It's an uncomfortable truth that for some of us, real power differences can be very erotic--hence the popularity of Alpha males and a gazillion books in this and related genres. But with any real differential comes the possibility of abuse, coercion, in [...]


    2. Dang, I was worried about liking these characters and I had every right to be. I had a hard time getting through this book. I was really hoping they would be redeemed. Tim I did start to like a bit better and but Weiss just ticked me off. He was un-apologetically"alpha" but I thought in this case it was bordering on abuse. There was never a lot of remorse for the way he conducted his relationship with Amanda or in depth explanation about what had happened. Was Amanda crazy? Were they both abusiv [...]


    3. After much pissing and moaning and eyes-rolling about the impossible "love story" I am rounding 3.5 stars up to 4.Will definitely read book 3, even if it's crazier than this one.(view spoiler)[I refuse to believe Amanda is dead. Too good of a character to waste. If that's not reason enough - show me the body! (hide spoiler)]


    4. Five leaders have been murdered. Herman Weiss is a big bad Alpha, who is the guardian of the Council. He is suffering from rages, that could lead to his execution, but he has to solve the murders and stay alive for his son. He is not above trickery if it will achieve that goal.What do you do when the wolf you have been madly in love with proposes a fake relationship? The relationship will keep the Alpha from being executed for being out of control. If you are Tim Sands, half fey, half elf, a PBI [...]



    5. I was torn on this. I liked the plot with the murders, I liked Tim a lot, but not Weiss. Everything he did was cold and calculated to maintain power. The way he treated his wife knowing full well what he was doing to her, the control he had over his child and the way he used Timothy to get what he wanted. He treated Tim like shit and only when Timothy pushed back would he say or do something to placate him and get him back in line, then he'd go right back to the same behaviour. I got the impress [...]


    6. The 2nd book in the Leader Murders series focuses on the head of the PBI, the alpha werewolf Weisz and Tim Sands, the half fey half elf psychologist and emotion reader. As Weiss' mate faces execution he becomes dangerously out of control and seek's Sand's help to control his emotions best done by becoming mates themselves.This was an interesting concept but it got bogged down in the number of potential bad guys and there was no resolution in the story. I don't believe Amanda is dead, we don't re [...]

    9. Five leaders have been murdered and the circumstances surrounding their deaths are most peculiar. Herman Weiss, PBI director, is responsible for trying to solve the case, with essentially no real leads. On top of that, he's feeling rages, something that could put him in grave danger himself. He seeks help from Timothy Sands, a half-fey, half-elf PBI counselor, whose emotional-grid balancing abilities can keep the rages in check. But in order to make that work, the two have to pretend to be a cou [...]


    10. Timothy has had a thing for Weiss for a long time. In fact his infatuation with Travis was because of the similarity to Weiss.Weiss had a male lover once before, but it ended badly. Now he’s stuck in a loveless mating that is about to finally be over, but he has a mess to clean up before he can be happy.Someone is using magic to make Weiss unstable and it is up to Tim to ground him and keep him alive long enough to solve the mystery and the murders.In a huge bout of drama our two erstwhile lov [...]


    11. Just as great as the first one loved Tim, but wow, Weiss is a total asshole. Making me like such a selfish, scheming, obnoxious prick is no mean feat, so kudos. Also, the worldbuilding was intriguing and I loved the quirky side characters and the smart loopholes left open in the plot that's how I like my appetite whetted for a sequel.


    12. Definitely felt like part of an ongoing saga. Several issues including the relationship not really resolved by the finish. I found Weiss quite unlikeable for most of the story. The same conflict was used from book 1 (i.e. senior members of the pack/council are secretly evil). Despite my reservations I enjoyed it enough to think about buying book 3.


    13. 2.5 stars - The characters weren't that likeable (mainly Weiss, Tim wasn't too bad), which made it hard for me to really enjoy the story. They had their merits though, and I did like the chemistry between Tim and Weiss.


    14. Herman Weiss is a self-centered, manipulative jerk. His last minute "I've wanted you all along" confession isn't nearly enough to make up for his deplorable treatment of Timothy, who has been inexplicably in love with him for the past 5 years and is willing to sacrifice everything on Herman's behalf.


    15. Review can be read at It's About The BookHerman Weiss may be going crazy and may be destined for execution, but Tim Sands is going to save him. Tim doesn’t really have a choice. Herman has made it clear this isn’t up for debate. Tim will be helping. Given that Tim has been mostly in love with Herman for years, he’s okay with that. Tim is more concerned he’ll be posing as Herman’s boyfriend. It’s the only way Tim can legally use his fey powers on Herman. Tim agrees to the ruse to keep [...]


    16. I really enjoyed Liv Olteano's return to this verse she has created. Olteano touches on the hard subjects: acceptance, consent, abuse, dominance and submission of the non-kinky sort, letting go and standing up for one's beliefs. The writing is easy to read and filled with emotions that make you not only feel what the characters do, but think about it as well. Though this is Herman Weiss and Timothy Sands' story, I loved that Rick and Travis made an appearance in this book. I also liked that Rick [...]


    17. Original Blog Post: Book Tour, eARC Review, Excerpt & #Giveaway: A Counselor Among Wolves (Leader Murders #2) by Liv OlteanoReview by: multitaskingmommaMy Rating: 4 of 5 StarsJust when we thought the Leader Murders was finally solved, the discovery of a new set of deaths opens the case right up. This means that the supposed mastermind, PBI director's mate herself may not be the one behind it. If that is true, then who is? This should have made Herman Weiss' life easier, but the new discovery [...]


    18. Reviewed at The Blogger Girls.4.5 starsWhen Weiss realizes he’s developing rages that could cost him his career, he does the only thing he can think of and asks Timothy Sands for help. Except, Weiss doesn’t just want some counseling… he wants Tim to fake being his lover until they can figure out what’s causing the rages and how to solve the Leader Murders. It should be a simple task… except for the fact that Tim’s been secretly yearning for Weiss for five years now and Tim reminds We [...]


    19. FourandHalfStars**Before I review, I do want to point out that this book (the first one, too, and I assume any further sequels will) deals with themes of intimate partner violence. That's not everyone's cup of tea, and some of it could be triggering or upsetting.**This is the second book in the Leader Murders series. I loved the first one, so I was excited to read the next installment. It didn't disappoint. It's full of the same elements I loved the last time: suspense, mystery, action, and sizz [...]

    21. This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.This is book 2 in a series but a stand alone. Tim Sands, a Counselor for a paranormal agency, loves Herman Weiss, who is the agency Director. Weiss is an ALPHA werewolf and Tim is an oddity, half-fey and half-elf. Weiss is mean as hell, and while Tim fears him, he can't help his attraction. They pretend to have a romance so Tim can use his powers (illicitly) to help Weiss level his out of control emotions, otherwise Weiss could be put [...]


    22. 4.5 STARSThe chemistry between Weiss and Tim was off the charts. Whether it was just kissing or full on sex these two ignited the moment they touched each other. I think the mad attraction between them helped me over look my less-than-nice thoughts towards Weiss because, despite his utter douchery, it was plain to see that those men absolutely had to end up together.As part of a continuing story arc, this book was a little light on the murder/conspiracy compared to the first book, but I guess th [...]


    23. I liked the book but what I really hated and which put me in dilemma that if I should even give it a 4 star rating was how Weiss acted. I get you are an alpha werewolf and you have to show your authority but Weiss was just plain old asshole. There are things he said that pissed me beyond my belief and Tim aka Ebel did not said anything. Ebel always said something back when he was just being annoyed but when it was time to say something back when Weiss was being be an asshole Ebel would get scare [...]


    24. Ok so I liked this book way more than I liked book 1. I am starting to think I just didn't like Rick because I didn't like him here as well but everything else was enjoyable for me. The dynamic, the fact that Weiss was in such need for help, even as strong and tough as he is. I liked that it wasn't a predestined mating but something borne out of desperation. The fact that it did not end with flowery declarations of love was perfect.


    25. The second book has a bit different flavour from the first. There is more politics, more multidimensional intrigue, the main characters are much more cynical and much, much less sweet. Still, it's not jarring and doesn't seem disjointed. If you wanted to smack Travis in book one you will definitely want to throttle Weiss in this one, but thank god Timothy is not nearly as innocent and vulnerable as Rick, so it all works out in the end.


    26. The series continues and ends with a cliff hanger. Weiss isn't actually a very likeable character 100% of the time. What he did to (view spoiler)[Amanda was absolutely crappy and he never apologizes for his actions making her so murderously unhappy (hide spoiler)].Am looking forward to the next in the series


    27. Good writing and story but I wish there had been more suspense and angst, good character development. This is book 2 of a series, there is no cliffhanger but a lot is left open for the next book, which I will grab as soon as it becomes available.


    28. After going true the second book of "Leader Murders" series I have to admit that from romantically aspect I found second book more to my liking. I liked both main character Weiss and Tim. My time spending on that book was satisfying.


    29. A bit better than the first one, but still the same pattern: one is the big alpha jerk, the other is a little doormat Again later it gets all nice and sweet, but still i cant call it romanceDetective plot is still interesting though.
