Aubrey Rose's new page turner is written with a wonderful tact that combines the best of traditional shifter romance fantasies with New Adult. There's a lot of emotionally intense moments and even a little angst. The power in Rose's intensely raw writing sharpens everything in this story. Julia and Damien stand with more realism, and when the steamy scenes come, they're like a summer storm: hot, bright, and maddeningly tense.
Curvy Julia never imagined falling for a man with so many secrets, but Damien's otherworldly charms draw her in. And it's only the beginning. Soon, she's in the thick of a paranormal love affair she never expected. The action in this tale kept me turning the pages as much as the romance. I just had to see a happy ending for our couple, even through some dark moments.
It's also lovely to see the talented Aubrey Rose experimenting in a slightly different direction. I've previously enjoyed her New Adult works and curvy heroine romances. Adding Blind Wolf to the mix takes her on a new route, straight toward places I want to explore again!
Damien is the blind alpha of a band of misfit wolves. As the leader it's his job to find a place for them to settle, to start a new life for the pack. When he finds Julia, he finds more than he bargained for.
Blind Wolf is, okay. It's a rather short novella that doesn't really go anywhere. Julia could be such a likable character if she wasn't written to hate herself. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the way she looks and she needs to realize that. I don't know if the author was trying to put a whole group of women down, but there was no way that Julia's being with Damien was going to bring them up. Yes, he told her she was sexy, and beautiful, but he's blind! Yes, looks don't count for everything but the characters didn't know each other! The whole novella took place over 3-4 days. In those few days they supposedly fell in love with each other, but without delving into themselves. He didn't tell her anything about himself and she didn't tell him about herself. It was all lust and sexual frustration. It just made no sense to me.
And one last thing, that cover, doesn't do the characters any justice. It's very misleading. Julia looks nothing like that. The cover model looks to be thin and blonde. Julia is "a bit on the heavy side" with red hair. The model would match Katherine a lot more.
Both Julia and Damien had traits that made them self-conscious, but that made them seem more REAL. The chapters also alternate from being told from Julia's point of view to Damien's, which gave each chapter a unique feel. Very cool idea!
I would LOVE to know if another book is coming out in this series, because I would love to know more about what happens with not only Julia and Damien, bu the rest of the characters I met too!
This definitely will not be the last book I read by Aubrey!!!
I was kind of curious where this one was going to go at first, because of how it started. The title eludes to it, and the blurb explains it, but I really didn't know quite how a blind shifter story could work. Scents and everything makes sense, but what else? How exactly does this work?
I think the thing I liked the most about the general premise of the story is that Damien's pack is all mostly outcasts, who have been harmed or become disabled in some way in the past. They're kind of the misfits who don't belong anywhere, and them trying to find a place to call their home is especially intriguing because of that. You always think of shifters as kind of the alpha and the strongest of anything, but not everyone can be the strongest, you know? Even still, they're more powerful than the average human and they don't let their disabilities get in the way of putting up a fight when the time calls for it, either. It was nice to have some underdogs to root for.
I've read Me, Cinderella? by Aubrey Rose, and I liked the tones of a somewhat fairytale in that one, so I adored the vague insinuations of Red Riding Hood in this one, too. That was a lot of fun, and while it didn't stick out to me at first, the more the story goes on, the more it makes sense (and the more the characters throw mention to it). It was just a nice little addition, I think.
In regards to the ending, which I think could be construed as somewhat disappointing, I actually liked it. It was happy and set the scene for good things to come, but there's also a few questions left unanswered.Read more ›
