This is the story of how Dee-Ann Smith's parents, Eggie and Darla Mae, met. Eggie is a killer. Stone-cold, he does the jobs that no one else will, he does it well, and he doesn't think twice. Darla is a pacifist. Great combo! Everyone is trying to protect Darla from Eggie, but when she unknowingly witnesses a murder, humans are after her and Eggie wants to be the one who protects her.
As with any Shifters series story, the banter and dialogue is random and hilarious, the family fights constantly, and the only calm in center of it all is sweet Darla. She knows right away that Eggie isn't the mean, heartless man everyone makes him out to be. She senses the good in him and knows from the start that he's the one for her. The best part of the stories in this series is the insanity. These characters will say anything, do anything and it makes me laugh. With this story, set in the 70s, there are random references to Columbo and Charles Manson (Darla was only with the cult for an hour!)
She walked bank to the counter, faced him, and said, "I love you, Eggie Ray."
Eggie nodded and waited for more - because there was always more when it came to Darla Mae and that's where he was expecting that damn hammer - but after nearly a minute she shrugged and said, "That's it. I love you. I'll always love you."
Darla looked off and suddenly added, "And I like pie."
I have to admit, when I started the story, I couldn't remember how Eggie and Darla Mae fit into the series and who we had already met in a previous book that was directly related, until the epilogue came and jumped thirty years into the future with a visit from their daughter Dee-Ann and Ulrich Van Holtz.Read more ›
I'm giving this book one star because the kindle version was priced at $9.63 to reflect that it is two books. The second book so terrible that I only finished it due to the price.
Like a Wolf With A Bone by Shelly Laurenston is one of my favorite stories in the Pride series. Darla is not the usual she-wolf character, but she works anyway. Some of the reviewers said she was sheltered, but I'm not sure where they got this idea as Darla left home at 18 to pursue a cooking career that took her all over Europe. Her primary mode of transportation was hitchhiking. From the book description I thought this was going to be the usual virgin taming the hardened killer, but it wasn't like that. Darla wasn't a shrinking violet and Eggie didn't change. I really liked the shout-out to Blayne's father. Blayne and Bo are my favorite characters in the series and her father is awesome.
Wed or Dead by Cynthia Eden was horrific. It has it all: melodrama, repetition, paper thin clichéd characters, and a-hole alpha male. Kayla is the hunter who kills evil paranormals and Gage is the animalistic werewolf alpha who is Willing To Do What It Takes. They marry because she is supposed to get close to him as part of her job. Of course, she really marries him because She Wants Him. Insta-love is always a gimme in shifter stories and it usually doesn't bother me, but here the melodrama level is so high that it's annoying. I'm sorry about the caps, but honestly, this is how the book sounds.
This is partial list of the things that drove me nuts:
1) Gage is always able to predict what's about to happen and has a plan.Read more ›
