The author has crafted an interesting book with a pretty original concept for a plot. Sadly, the world built is confusing with several blanks needing to be filled. Even though the story flow was not easy to follow, the story kept me guessing and I’ve ended wanting more. For all that was missing the book was a fast-paced read for me.
I have liked both main characters and I’ve also enjoyed some secondary characters as well. I wished I had learn more about them, and also about the setting of the book. I did relate and connect with them, I just quite didn’t understand it all.
This book has some hot scenes and a very interesting approach to sex between human and shifters. There is a scene between human and a shifter in animal form that may not be to everyone’s liking. There is also some bondage going on, which helps heats up some of the scenes.
I really like the different approach taking by the author of a shifter’s book, I just wish it hadn’t so many things left unsaid. Don’t get me wrong, it has a great ending, not much of a cliff hanger, only enough to entice the reader to the next book.
I like the promise of this book.It has so many things that I love in a good read such as shifters, smut, fighters, bikers and hot guys; I only hope the author will answer some of the mysteries in the next book.
I would have buy this book in a bookstore, just by it’s cover which I believe is perfect.
“I won’t let him do anything to us,” I said, lifting Bo Peep to my shoulder. “And I’m not going to end your life because you can’t stand up to him. You are so much stronger than you think you are, Cooper. You’re more than a werewolf. Much more.
