Party boy and werewolf, Jay Dellarson is stunned when his uncle hires a human to be his newest assistant. Kira Franklin is a sheltered girl with a mysterious past who’s finally taking charge of her life. When Jay and his pack begin to spend more time with the new girl in town, things start to unravel. Kira fights to keep her secrets hidden but when she finds out the truth of the town’s inhabitants it puts her in greater danger than ever before. While discovery of the werewolves’ secrets is dangerous, it’s discovery of Kira’s secrets that could place everyone in the middle of a vicious war.

I picked this up for free as it sounds just like a book I'd enjoy. Jay is a werewolf and lives in Brisbane, FL with a large pack of werewoves. His father, the mayor, is the Alpha and Jay is also an alpha. Kira has just moved into town. We learn early in the book that she is a witch and there is some type of war going on with witches.

Kira is supposedly at the university to attend vet school while Jay is a graduate student and his friends have graduated and are working at jobs (construction firm, ad agency) or in graduate school (lawyer). However, it seems as if all they do is party every night. There are a lot of references to facebook and texting and Jay and his friends go to parties with undergrads. It just felt creepy to me that 24 year old guys who were working would still go to undergrad parties.

I didn't really care for the characters either. Jay acts out to get his dad's attention. That's fine if you are 12 or 14 years old.... not so much if you are 24 years old with adult responsibilities. All of the people are beautiful, gorgeous, wealthy people. Jay is an alpha, Annabelle is a rare Omega, the twins are geniuses, etc. It just ended up feeling too fake. The one thing that I DID appreciate was the fact that there didn't seem to be "instant love" going on between Kira and Jay and no love triangle was being setup.

The typos were very distracting. There were numerous words that were incorrect. For example, "taught" instead of "taut" (this error was made more than once!), "private manor" instead of "private manner", "refers" instead of "defers", etc. There were sentences with awkward word usage... such as "It doesn't seem right that a human be working with my uncle". Also, the book changed viewpoints every chapter between Kira and Jay.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, where's the sequel? January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book very much. I was not ready for it to end. Werewolves with parental pressure, feuding witch factions with vampires added into the mix. The most disbelievable thing in the mix for me was how much partying the werewolves did, but that may just be my background coming into it. The characters were believable and likeable ( the ones who were supposed to be liked). I just wish the mystery attackers had been explored a little morebefore the book ended. Please hurry with the next.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK July 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an alright read if you like the kind of thing. It is told in first person, which I generally dislike. To complicate things it is told in first person from the perspective of two people. I found this really distracting and annoying. Now, I did appreciate being able to see both character's POVs, but I've found myself constantly having to double check the chapter headings to remember who was currently narrating.

I really, really liked that this was not a case of insta-love. I found the romance a lot more realistic for the time it took to develop. But this was definately one of those books where the heroine manages to charm everyone effortlessly and by the end it starts to feel just a little too kumbaya for my taste--with everyone throwing wonderful affirmations around. This always strikes me as an underdevelopment.

The book seemed to throw the magic in all of a sudden. One moment Kira is going along as a normal girl unknowingly hanging out with the werewolves, the next she is suddenly off doing her thing. (I don't want to give a spoiler, but suffice it to say there is no build up and so the reveal seems very abrupt.) I also didn't quite grasp the seriousness of her situation. I understood she was in hiding because of the war. But she wasn't anyone special to it, not a princess or the daughter of a leader or an active participant. She was just one girl so I saw no reason for her to be any more hunted than anyone else. Therefore all of her and her family's precautions seemed really over the top.

It also ended without ending. I know that this is the first of a series, but my absolute, number one, literary pet peeve is...I would call it a cliffhanger, but that's not right.

3.0 out of 5 stars Such Potential January 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh, how awesome this series could be. Love the storyline, characters and it has a great title and series title. It could use a heavy dose of editing and some honest beta readers. I am not a stickler on editing for Indie authors, but it was pretty distracting. I see great things for the future of this series if the right direction is taken. Great job on what appears to be a first published book.

1.0 out of 5 stars CRITIQUE January 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried to like it in the beginning. I really did try.

It had an interesting concept to it, but that's it. A merely interesting concept that COULD have been developed into something more fascinating than another romance with a bit of drama and action in it. While I like how the book dabbled into the finer topics if the supernatural, it could have done more, perhaps bring in other species too, and vary away from the cliche (as with the vampires and their "pan European accent".

The whole book could be expanded upon, and instead of bringing in something new within the middle of the book or last few chapters (Kira's grandmother for example), why not briefly touch upon it in the beginning? Please? It would make the book a better read, and make it seem less like a thirteen year old's perfect fantasy.

The characters are somewhat believable, but honestly they need to be developed more. Honestly, if the characters are 20+, they really ought to act like it. And purple eyes? Obviously, because PLENTY of people walking around us have purple eyes, it's not like it screams SUPERNATURAL or CONTACTS at all.

And these symbols here are called commas: ,
They are very important. Not only that, but so is proofreading and getting someone else to proofread it too.

No wonder it's free.

WOULD NOT RECOMMEND, WASTE OF TIME.
