Hannah Jamenson has babies on the brain. It seems that her sisters-in-law are expanding their family in the blink of an eye, but Hannah feels left behind. Every time that little test reads negative a little part of her dies and she feels like her Healing powers are failing her. Her mates, Josh and Reed, are doing everything they can to help her deal with their trials and losses, but they too feel like there is nothing they can do.

Just when the lines of what they mean to each other go out of focus, an enemy from Josh’s past is back to prove the things that go bump in the night are real and everything they had held dear is now in jeopardy. In order to fight back and find their way, they’ll need to put everything on the line before they lose it all.

Author’s Note: This is a novella set between books 4 and 5 to give you a taste of Reed, Josh, and Hannah. It is best that you have already immersed yourselves in the Redwood Pack world, however even new readers will enjoy a glimpse of the Redwood’s favorite triad.

Another great read by Ryan. I LOVED this lil book. It is touching and HOT. How can this threesome NOT be HOT! It was an exciting and well-paced read for a novella. Sometimes they seem so rushed, not the case here. I really recommend reading the other Redwood books to fully appreciate this great read. If you haven't already, check out Carrie Ann Ryan's other series - Dante's Circle and Holiday, Montana. Check out Holiday, Montana Series if you need a little smile with your smoking hot reading every now and then.

I have never been disappointed by one of Carrie Ann Ryan's books and this addition to The Redwood Pack was another in a long line of great books. I have a soft spot for these three characters as I am a huge fan of triads. It just adds to it when it is a MMF triad. Josh, Reed, and Hannah will never have it easy as they are 3 totally different people (a half demon, a werewolf, and a witch)...what could be harder?? I don't want to give too much away but I am super excited that everything turns out the way it needed to. The trials and tribulations of this family and pack are almost too much to bear.

I have been waiting for this novella since I first heard it was going to be written. I love this series and really loved the story of this mating. I read the first chapter on Carrie Ann's blog a while ago and was crushed. Experiencing Hannah's emotions while they are so desperately trying to start a family was powerful. I was so happy when it was finally up on Amazon yesterday so I could finish the story and get to the HEA Carrie Ann is known for. The story was beautifully written and had the emotional journey of the three along with some adventure and the heat Carrie Ann is well known for. I was afraid the topic would be to emotional for me, but Carrie Ann nailed it in an authentic way. If you have not read at least Trinity Bond, this book will probably not be something you are interested in. The story is complete, but I feel you would be missing the connections needed to make it the great read that it is.

Blurred Expectations Hannah, Josh and Reed are not your typical"couple". Brought together from tragedy, now very much in love with each other. All 3 love unconditionally and are made for one another. With all the other women in the Jamenson family having babies, Hannah never excepted her to have troubles getting pregnant. With 2 men, it should be easy. As the months have gone by, the stress mounts and depression kicks in. The men are at a loss and don't know how to confront the issue. So they plan on showing her how much she is needed. But as she goes and helps inlaws with babies. She can't fathom how she can be a healing witch, yet not be able to conceive. Josh and Reed are also starting to doubt themselves and the bond between them is in jeopardy. When Josh's military past comes back, with it brings danger not just to the Red Wood Pack but maybe the whole shifter community. I love the Redwood Pack series. Revisiting Hannah and her men is pretty awesome. Great addition to the series. Not really a read alone book. You could but you might not get the characters nuances. This one hit a little closer to home with me. My husband and myself have had infertility issues. So Hannah, for me was very relate able! All three start to doubt and that is pretty normal when you feel something should be easy and comes with difficulty. Thanks Carrie Ann for the great read.

Blurred Expectations by Carrie Ann Ryan The Trinity Bond is struggling. Josh, Reed and Hannah have each been helping the Pack in their own way, Hannah as the Pack's Healer, Josh helping Adam as an Enforcer, and Reed coming into his own as a part of the Alpha's family. They have used their Trinity Bond to strengthen the wards surrounding the den. But, they have suffered for it, and are now dealing with pain, loss, and depression. Each are dealing with it in their own way, or trying to. Hannah, most of all, is pulling away, keeping her secrets to herself, not depending on her mates. Her duties to the Pack have cost her more than she can bear. Will Hannah be able to overcome her sense of failure, loss and her depression to return to her mates whole and help them and the Pack once more? Can she find her way, or will her problems cause more loss and suffering? Will Josh truly be able to put his past behind him, coming into his own as a member of the Pack and accept his demon side? Can Reed help his mates through this time of loss and pain? In this novella, Carrie Ann has told the story of a loss and pain in a very real way. Showing the bond of these mates falling apart, their pain at the loss, and what lengths they will go to to return to each other. A wonderful addition to the Redwood Pack series! Don't miss it! 5 of 5 stars

Blurred Expectation is a Novella in the Redwood Series, set between Books 4 and 5. In my opinion this is not a standalone novella. I have read every book in this series and have thoroughly enjoyed all of them. We were introduced to this trio in book 3 of the Redwood Series, Trinity Bound. I gave Trinity bound 5 out of 5 Skulls, I instantly fell in love with Hannah our main heroine in this book, and it was my 1st introduction with m/m and was pleasantly surprised with how tasteful Carrie Ann wrote it. Hannah, Josh, and Reed are revisited in Blurred Expectations, which is one of my favorite things about this series as a whole; Carrie Ann teases her readers and keeps us snagged with her novellas where we get to revisit couple from previous novels while leading us into the next full length book in the series. Hannah and her mates have a bond that is untouchable but they have experienced a tragedy and are having trouble getting passed the pain, resentment, and guilt that threatens to tear their bond apart. That is not our only enemy in this novella, a man from Josh’s past comes back to destroy what Josh has strived to protect, no matter how odd his new life might seem to others, he would die for Hannah and Reed. Hannah and her mates are trying so hard to be the next in the Jamenson clan to have a baby but this witch, wolf, and half demon can’t seem to get pregnant while the other mated couples around them are popping babies out like candy out of a pez dispenser. With all the things stacked against them, they can’t help but ask themselves, why us? Blurred Expectations is a quick easy read, which helps the true Redwood Series fan wet their appetite while waiting for the next full length novel, set for release in June 2013. I give Blurred Expectations 4 out of 5, only because I wanted the last chapter to be a little more “in depth”, besides that I was very happy with my short visit back to the Redwood Clan and to see Hannah and her mates once again triumph over the odds against them. I strongly recommend this entire series for any paranormal fan.
