Gator’s Challenge is the fourth and what appears to be the final book in the Bitten Point series. At minimum, it wraps up the series arc up until this point. So far, we know there is something going on a Bittech and there are weird creatures running a muck in Bitten Point. The issue is that we don’t know who all is involved and exactly what these weird “dinosaur” like creatures. There are also people who keep turning up missing.

Melanie is our heroine in this story. She is a panther and has two children (twin boys). She is married to Andrew, works at Bittech. He has never been much of a husband. Oh, he plays one fairly well when out in public, but behind closed doors, he doesn’t do anything you would call “husbandly”. Melanie settled for Andrew after Wes left her. Wes and Melanie were high school sweethearts, but Wes, being a Mercer, didn’t want to bring Melanie down with his name. Mercer’s are not well liked in Bitten Point.

Wes is the head of security at Bittech. He’s also who the book is titled after, since he is the gator of the book. Wes thought he was doing Melanie a favor by keeping her away from him and his family. He thought she deserved better than him. So instead, she basically became a trophy wife to Andrew, which wasn’t a step up in my opinion. Wes does do some things he isn’t proud of throughout the course of this series, but let’s just say he has reasons. He hasn’t gone down the path of most of the Mercer family. We do also get to meet other people in the Mercer family and I say, judging by Uncle Parker, I don’t really like the Mercer family either.

This was a great wrap up to this series. I loved finally seeing the mystery of Bitten Point come to a nice close, though Eve Langlais left a door open to either continue the series or possibly create another spinoff (like she did with this one from Kodiak Point). This book had a nice romance with high school sweethearts who get a second chance at love, but boy they have to work for it. It also has some action in it. Lastly, you can’t have an Eve Langlais book without humor. That is her trademark. There is plenty of humor in this book, though I think this one is the lightest of the series.

Something dropped from above the door onto the nurse, something lunged at her from the floor, and amidst the screaming—lots of it comparing the twins to satanic imps escaped from hell—Melanie laughed.
“There’s my good boys. Come see Mama.”

Gator’s Challenge Narration

3.5 Hearts

Chandra Skyye continues to do a good job with the narration of this series. I think she has continued to get better and better with every book in this series.

Author Eve LanglaisHello, my name is Eve Langlais and I am an International Bestselling author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens .

I should warn you, I have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. While well known for my shifter stories, I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Or do you like something a little darker, more serious? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.


  1. I don’t know if I could do this series, but the humor makes it sound like a Molly Harper book, which I love. So… maybe?

    • Eve Langlias’s humor is similar, yet different from Molly Harper’s humor. She has a ton of different series. I think favorite is the Welcome to Hell series that is mostly demons and features Lucifer who is hilarious. She also has a ton of books that I haven’t tried yet. I know that Lexxie loves her alien books and I haven’t started them yet.

  2. Wasn’t there another gator story in this series or was it a crocodile? I really have to read this series because of the different shifters. I hope there isn’t any cheating involved, and I’m intrigued as to what happens with the twins in all of this.

    • The first book is about a croc and the third books is about a python. I love that Eve isn’t afraid to tackle animal species you don’t normally see in the shifter world. I can’t remember if the marriage was “officially” over when Wes and Melanie get together. To Andrew, the marriage never meant anything anyway. He treated her so badly. I didn’t consider it cheating.

  3. I still need to do book 3 first 🙂 I don’t know how I got behind —oh wait my stupid reading slump 🙂

    • I’ve been in a big slump on reading. I’ve been fine on listening. I hope you get over your reading slump soon.

  4. Glad to hear the series and mystery wrapped up well. I have this series on my wishlist, no doubt because of you 🙂

    • Eve is a fun author to try. I hope you enjoy her when you get to it.

  5. Hmm, I haven’t heard of this series Melanie. Thanks!

    • She does write some interesting shifters. Eve Langlais and Shelly Laurenston really think outside the box when it comes to shifters.

  6. I know how much you love the author so it’s great to see you had a great time again!

    • Eve Langlais has always been a fun read for me. Her stories always make me smile.

  7. Oh I was thinking that this one would be for me and then you added that she does humor well. Yea, I do think I need to listen to the series. Adding this one to my wishlist.

    • Eve Langias is great at humor. This series, Kodiak Point are both narrated by this narrator and I really enjoyed both series. Welcome to Hell is another favorite series for me, but I haven’t listened to the audios.

  8. I think I really need to read or listen to another Langlais book, and soon, Melanie! Both her fantastic sense of humor and the hotness of the story and the characters appeal to me 🙂
    Great review!

    • I do love Eve Langlais. I’m such a big fan of her humor too. I’m so excited that Lucifer has his own book. I plan to read that one soon.

  9. It’s nice this one wraps things up to this point so it would work as a series ender. But also leaves things open enough to continue or make a spin-off if she wants to. I like the sound of how this series has so many unique shifters. I really should give one of this author her books a try once.

    • I love that Eve Langlais isn’t afraid to use different types of animals that you don’t normally see as shifters. She had a swan as the heroine in another series and a hawk in another.

  10. Ahhh I’m behind in this series. *flails* Dang it she writes fast! I do love her reptiles (never thought I’d say that! lol) but she’s married?!

    • She does write fast. I can’t keep up with her. Plus, I’m so far behind on so many series. I will never run out of Eve books to read. I love her reptiles too. Who would think a cold blooded creature would make such a great shifter? Yes, she is married. It isn’t as bad as it sounds. You have to read it to understand.
