It was a great start - gorgeous Alpha Lican Eric attracted to a damsel in his woods and in distress but the further into this story I got it kept refe..Show More »rring to crucial past events that had happened and past matings by other members of the Bloodrunners that I felt it was missing out on important facts. Then, after finishing it, I found out that this is actually book 4 in the Bloodrunners series! Don't you just hate that - it's like watching a film half way through and not getting either the mood of or the full story - yes it's watchable but lacking and incomplete.
I think partly for that reason the book fell a little short for me, yes it was an enjoyable enough listen but I'm sure it would have been even more so if I could have related to all the characters mentioned and each of their previous stories. Coupled with that, there were a few 'inconsistencies' like "no bullets can kill a Lican only decapitation and total blood loss" but later Eric broke the kneck of one killing him and when Chelsea shoots one she kills him with one shot. I liked Chelsea in the beginning but despite Eric rescuing her, paying for a motel for her, saving her life, protecting her etc etc etc she became one of those infuriating selfish women that can't see past herself.
It seemed to be a very one-sided passion but not mutually passionate, there were sex scenes but they always seemed unbalanced and not sexy and lots of talking even during the 'claiming' which should have been an intense moment.
Worth a credit? If I'd listened to the previous three books then maybe my answer would have been different but I just felt this missed the magic - so for all the reasons mentioned, I'm sorry to say NO.
I love the entire series it is great that both the male and female lead have a shady past instead of just one as it usually is it makes them seem like..Show More » they fit so much more. love love loved it!
Good book but the h was such a whiner and weak sounding! She is supposed to be some tough fighter but does not come across as one at all. Goes on and ..Show More »on about the same thing. She cries and whines, tells him to go away about the same thing. If I were the H I would just leave her. It was just an ok book but could have been so much better.
