As soon as I started reading I was hooked! Two cousins Taric and Draeven, alpha warriors on a quest, meet and fall in love/lust with an elfin woman, Kyra, and the story just picks up speed from there. Korey Mae Johnson excels at writing this type of story. It is so well written you have no problem feeling as if you are there or that the fantasy land is quite real. Strong characters that you can not help becoming invested in keep you turning the pages. And let me just say this is one steamy, sexy story no doubt about it!! I sincerely hope there will be a sequel!! Well done!!

This story is about 2 cousins who are Northerners whom as they've grown up have shared everything from adventure to women. They are on a quest to kill a giant for the Elves. It has been foretold that they would be the ones to kill it, marry a she-elf and be parents of the hero who will destroy the Dark Wizard. The fantasy part had me hooked from the beginning.
Kyra the she-elf they come across in the Blue Forest is a savy, survive by your wits kind of elf gal. She is an outcast of her society since she is different from other Elf women. One of her best endearments is her witty sarcasm. She attempts to steal from Taric and Draven and thats when they show Kyra the error of her ways. Things heat up quickly not to mention her bottom.
She has been on her own and been an outcast so long that it's difficult for her to believe the brothers would choose her or come to care for her. The Elf community is obligated to keep their word by allowing humans to marry an elf. The King is not as honorable as he lets on.
Taric and Draven are wonderful and strong warriors who instantly lose their heart to Kyra. They are more than able to handle Kyra's attitude and show her the proper way they expect their wife to behave. They are gruff and forceful but caring and loving and Kyra comes to understand this in the end in many, many ways.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of Korey's story. You won't be disappointed in this author.

This is a first time author for me and also my first time reading fantasy. I normally don't read fantasy because it drags out and it's hard to get into. I read a sample first and was instantly drawn in. I finished this in a matter of hours. I couldn't pull myself away from reading it. The characters in this story Kyra, Taric, and Draevan all made me feel for them in different ways.
Kyra is innocent and insecure, she is an outcast. She differs from other Elves in that she hides, she is not part of the kingdom. She is full of witty sarcasm, quick to snap back at Taric and Draevan. I could strongly relate to Kyra's insecurity. I felt as if I were a shadow watching the story play out.
Draevan has never allowed himself to feel for another woman, his mother had foreseen that he and his cousin would slay the giant and marry the she-elf given to them as payment. He waited for the day when he would find her. Kyra instantly softens Draevan even if he refuses to admit it at first. Draevan instantly hits me as the dominant one between him and Taric.
Taric is the softer one, he feels for Kyra although as the story goes on, he quickly finds his dominate bone. To me, he is the more tender lover. Taking his time with Kyra, enjoying her with each stroke.
As the story progresses you learn more about the characters and watch them grow. They learn to trust each other and become to depend on each other. If Kyra hadn't been so stubborn I think this would have made the story slow and boring. With her sacasm and stubborness she makes the story a good read. This story has suspense, romance, and a wonderful storyline. I love that you see the jealously between Taric and Draevan over sharing a wife, you see that all the characters are still working out their flaws and learning to cherish one another, not fight.
Shared Between Them has made me reconsider reading Fantasy. I enjoyed reading this and look forward to a possible sequel. This story will leave you panting and wanting more. You'll feel like you have come to know them personally. I highly recommend Shared Between Them especially if your like me, you don't typically give fantasy a chance. I will be adding more of Korey Mae Johnson to my bookshelf this year.
