I have read through the first three books, and I will probably read a more in this series; however, I can't believe there aren't more people noting that in all three books she gets raped and is only mildly put off by it happening - and happening so often. Sure the werewolves are written to be highly sexual creatures, but really I don't even think the most hardened nympho would be nonchalant about getting raped so much. It has made it hard for me to really like her. I do however like the men in the stories.
I think the story line up to this book has been fine but not the greatest. Some examples of series with good story lines are the Jane Yellowrock series, the Mercy Thompson series, and the New Species series.
I'm hopefully now that we are done with this Arc that book four will lead into so stronger stories and preferably not her getting raped more. It just felt so overdone to get people triggered.
Still to end on a good note, there have been some touching moments in the stories - moments between her and her men (when they aren't making out like bunnies) as well as the ending of book two.
