I wasn’t a big fan of Jericho in the previous books, but I was pleasantly surprised by him here. At first he was kind of an immature jerk, but as the novel wore on he grew up and I ended up really liking him. Izzy was a good heroine for him. She was funny and independent and I liked how quick she was to stand up for herself.

I really wish the author didn’t include the silly side plots featuring drug runners or crazy exes or loan sharks or whatever. In this case it was a crazy ex and a nasty drug kingpin. The plots do nothing to further the story and honestly just confused me half the time. The story would be going along great then, BAM, she was getting kidnapped out of nowhere for no reason. Lame.

One of the things I like about this series is that the shifters can’t remember anything while their in animal form. The animal takes over completely and it’s like the human blacks out. It makes for some interesting tales and confusing antics, but it’s a good spin on kind of an old tale.

I like the family ties the brothers have with each other, and I like the world. I actually binge-read this entire series. Though I like certain aspects better than others, and some books didn’t work for me at all, overall it has good bones.

3.5 out of 5
