Gotta love the male counterpart in this one. He's considerate, funny, strong willed, patient, and generally adorable. Coming from a male reader, that is saying a lot.
The book itself was great, the romance deep, and the mystery was interesting. One of her better books.
While I agree with some reviewers that this writer sometimes draws things out a little too long, and makes all of the characters look like complete idiots in an attempt to draw out suspense after the reader has no doubt already figured out the "big surprise" plot points... All in all, this series is awesome. Love the characters. Especially in the last few books where the winning formula is changed in only good ways. I recommend this to anyone who like romance involving small women with large, dominant men.
Great book. From the start, where I was laughingly wondering what had crawled up the male protagonists rear and died, to the end where everything about him makes sense. I found everything in between a good read.
The romance is good. The laughs are constant. The characters are involving. The sex (there are pretty detailed descriptions, for those who are wondering) is steamy. The drama/action moments are satisfying.
The narrator, which I will comments on through the entire series, matches the mood no matter the situation. Her voice reflects the humor, the romance, the sexy, and the tense when it is needed.
This series is amazingly funny. You don't often find a series about werewolves that makes you chuckle every few minutes. In fact, I don't think I ever have. I had to stop myself more than once from laughing out loud in public while listing to the snarky but awesome alpha. But like her previous books, there are moments where humor flies out the window to allow drama and violence to take over. This is a good thing.
The characters that come back from the previous book are given their place, but not allowed to take control at any point in the story, which is important. They are not forgotten, however. The villain... Well... Just listen.
The narrator in this one certainly helps set the mood. Her voice, and inflections are perfect for the tone of the moment, be they sexy or laugh out loud funny. I recommend this entire series for anyone look for a funny, light read about supernatural romance.
The book itself was excellent in almost all ways. I loved the characters, the romance (even if the romance wasn't the central theme of the book itself) and the DOG. No spoilers for those who have not read it, but I love that dog. He is amazing.
From him, to the pitiable villain, and the two humans wrapped up in their world the story comes together very well and follows through with a satisfying ending. I will no doubt listen again.
I would say that this is one of her best books so far. Not only an engaging romantic story, but a deep, gritty and thoughtful story of organized crime and cyber warfare without the boring details of "How to hack this and that."
The main characters are believable in that the lead female character is frightened, but self reliant and very capable. She's afraid, yes. But she is afraid with good reason. It never comes across as an irrational fear, simply a powerful one. The slow built to a relationship, the continuation of the main focus of the story beyond the romance without it feeling chopped or rushed, and the climax (no pun) makes this one of her best. And I have read and listened to a lot of her books.
I would recommend this book.
Not for the faint of heart. Brutal in some areas, powerful in emotion, and in the end makes you pity the main character. Great detail, a good deal of thought, though the ending was no real surprise once you've heard the first few chapters. A very good book, however. Fans of Nora, I recommend this book
