Review: I was confused at the beginning of this story and I’m afraid the confusion continued. Perhaps the series should come with a warning to read in sequential order and that the stories are not stand alone romance. As a reader, I don’t believe the story was set up well enough to ground a reader who hasn’t read the previous works.
There were too many characters and plot lines interweaved in a way that didn’t build the story, but rather made a story difficult to follow and nearly impossible—for me at least—to get into. The
was that I liked both Henry and Dakota. Their relationship was sweet and sexy and the burgeoning love was emotion and satisfying. There was fear and trepidation. Not to mention there is that endearing quality of weres--they know their mate. Watching them fight against their needs was rewarding to this reader. It’s what makes the romance in this story. However, the numerous characters, (many with no bearing on the story at all) and plot points that seem to come out of nowhere and conclude with no resolution spoiled the rest of the story for me. Although I have to give praise to Ms. Kell, this is only one mediocre story in a string of brilliant work. My recommendation would be to try another of her stories and perhaps skip this one unless you’ve read everything in the series that has come before it. high point
