Michelle is nineteen and has been a prisoner in her home for the past four years. The reason? She is able to foretell the stock market, and an evil man(Blake) is keeping her there while using her information to become very rich. Also living in the house are her small brothers and her stepfather, Richard, who is now just a puppet for Blake. When Richard suddenly dies after leaving her money and important papers in an envelope, Michelle grabs the boys and runs away. Not really spoilers as it all happens in the first few pages. While on the road, and stopped at a diner, she is mesmerized by a guy eating there, and he is with her as well. But even so she leaves and gets caught by Blake’s men. The guy from the diner(Emmitt) helps her escape. This is the story of what happens both on the road, and after they finally get to Emmitt’s home.
I loved the main characters of Michelle and Emmitt. Michelle was mature beyond her years due to her imprisonment, and so loving towards her brothers. But she is also real, she gets tired of being around a toddler constantly, just like anyone would. She makes poor decisions at times, as we all do as well. She also has a classic too stupid to live moment closer to the end of the book. Yep, I was yelling at her. But my point is, she is not a cookie cutter character. Emmitt reminded me a lot of Clay from book one-but then they are both werewolves. Emmitt certainly talks a lot more than Clay, but he is also an extremely nice guy who just happens to have a furry secret. Nana Wini, an elder in the werewolf community, and also a resident at Emmitt’s home was quite the character. She’s like the bad ass grandmother with a cardigan on her shoulders and a werewolf inside that is way stronger and meaner than even Emmitt or his brother Jim. Jim was a fun character, and also resides in the home. He becomes the play toy for the children, even though he is an adult. He also is the instigator for trouble at times. Sam, Gabby’s guardian from book one, is also back this time around. This book takes place in the same time frame as the first book.
The premise of there being two different types of werewolves was really different. The fact that the werewolves are just now finding out about the Urbats and that there is a possibility that these special women could have a true mate within the werewolves and the Urbat community as well, made it even more unusual. Urbat’s aren’t exactly the friendliest of races to say the least. And they really want Michelle, among other things.
This book has an exciting story line with lots of action at times, interspersed with Emmitt and Michelle’s romance-which is much quieter. Any book that can make me stop everything else but reading, is one that I consider well written, and this book certainly fits into that category. It’s perfectly fine for older teens to adults. There is some talk of mating, but nothing explicit.
Reader Rated for ages 14+ for moderate sensuality, but no sex. It's pretty much steamy touches and looks. It's a hot read that stayed totally clean!
The series has to be read in order I know that now. You see (Mis)fortune and Hope(less) (Gabby's story) take place at the same exact time. The story is woven with bits and pieces from Hope(less). You see a lot of the characters that are in the first book show up in this book as well and some of the events work together with the events that happen in the previous book.
This story centers around Michelle and she is like Gabby and Charlene, she is a human with special powers and is a compatible with mate for werewolves. She has been kept prisoner for years and force to do the bidding of a pretty bad guy. She is constantly threatened and has some pretty huge responsibilities on her shoulders. Because of all that Michelle has gone through in her young life she is very strong. She struggles with abuse and threats for years yet she is determined to break-free from the monster that keeps her. I admire the fact that after all the years of abuse that she didn't breakdown, she fought and she kept fighting even when she was free.
Then there is Emmitt , who you should guess is a werewolf. Emmitt is so damn adorable it is a shame. He is a good guy that kind gotta a little edge, he's strong and willing to help Michelle with whatever she needs. He is there for her, he protects her, and gives her comfort. He doesn't ask for anything in return he just hopes that one day she could come to care for him as well.
In (Mis)fortune some major s*** goes down and there is parallel timelines with Gabby's story. The other type of werewolves are back and there's kidnapping, murder, theft, stalking, abuse and revelations are revealed. I loved Michelle's story and I can't wait to read it from Emmitt's POV in Emmitt's Treasure. I will be getting the rest of the books in the series and companion novels because it's getting good and I can't wait to find out what happens next.
