I love the first installment in the second installment of this series, can't wait for the others I highly recommend this series and this author Toni G..Show More »riffin. the story between Ben and Tom so sweet, after Tommy gets beaten by his last alpha, he must overcome great obstacles like trust and fear to be with his mate
I like Toni griffin's stories. But the narrator is not selling this series. It ferls like he's rushing through the book and its pretty monotone. I did..Show More »n't feel the connection between the main characters like I should have. Not sure if that was the story or the narration.
This is the fourth book in the Atherton series and while it can probably be read as a standalone I think you’d miss a lot in the continuing story arc ..Show More »if you haven’t read the first three. There’s not a lot of world building so I think the author assumes you’ve been following along.
In any case, we get to see what happens after Corey. There’s an investigation, some potential for a break in the secrecy from humans and of course Kieran and Damon learning they’re mates.
What I liked about this is that both MCs are strong, almost alpha types, so they like to manhandle the other quite a bit. There is quite a bit of sex in this and a fair amount of the book is also devoted to the ongoing story arc. I do wish there’d been a bit more “relationship building” but it wasn’t terribly different from the previous books in this regard.
One thing that bothered me a little: the guys end up mating fairly quickly and sharing the mind link – but they still end up not “knowing” the other well. Wouldn’t they just “talk” via the mind link and establish the relationship that way? But that’s a small complaint.
If you’ve been enjoying the series, as I have, this is a great installment and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I really like Nick Flint and I always enjoy his narrations. He always does a great job with the accents though he doesn't do a lot to differentiate the characters. He's good with emotions and this is a great way to enjoy this addition to the series. 4.5 of 5 stars for both the audio and the book
