A spell was cast to find the forever mates for the warriors of the secret town, Lycaonia. Meryn, new to the closest town to Lycaonia, decides it would be a good idea to climb a 10 foot tall fence to go exploring. Of course she is found. And Aiden, the Unit Commander of the warrriors has of course, found his mate. Meryn is not having any of it and so begins the tale of a woman and her neanderthal of a mate, Aiden. The fact that Aiden is a bear shifter, and the rest of the warriors are all sorts of supernatural creatures, just adds to the enjoyment of this story.
Meryn was not your typical paranormal romance heroine, to say the least. She wears nothing but jeans, t shirts, and hoodies. Potty mouth? For days! And she doesn’t have a filter, what she thinks spouts out of her mouth, even when it will get her into trouble. She doesn’t like people and likes being a loner. Aiden is hundreds of years old and has the temperament of a bear most of the time. He really knows very little about the outside world as human life doesn’t interest him. When he meets Meryn and gets assaulted over and over by her, he really makes a mess of things-hence the reason Meryn calls him a neanderthal. When she makes Star Wars or Dr. Who references, he is completely confused. She may have been bewitched into finding him, but he’s definitely bewildered.
Other characters that are introduced included a wolf shifter, Colton, a vampire, Gavriel, and bears, Adelaide and Byron, Aiden’s parents, among many others. Also included in the story are witches and Fae. This author’s world building had information about all the different creatures, as well as about the new world that Meryn is now a part of. And what a world it is. The people dress right out of the Regency period, but at the same time do have antiquated computers, cars, and other technology-just enough to get by in the real world.
I really enjoyed seeing Meryn take on the high society of Lycaonia, and her elder counsel visit became the stuff of legends. Not only does Meryn have to learn to navigate this new world, but the new world has to come to terms with Meryn. She’s not exactly anything that they have ever encountered before!
So I could go on an on. But I won’t. I will say that when Meryn sends Aiden to the store for tampons, it was one of the funniest scenes I have read in years. The book is worth it for that scene alone! There’s also a mystery involved that I won’t be going into either, but should be mentioned. I ended up loving this book even with it’s problems, and I would highly recommend it to adult paranormal romance readers. Me? I am going to dive into the rest of the series-next up Gavriel, the vampire, finds his mate.
I would recommend that you try the sample before purchase if you're not sure the humor is going to work for you. It kicks in pretty quick so you should get a good idea if you think Meryn is funny or just an idiot.
1. Who decides to go adventuring and climbs the first tall fence seen? Possibly a too stupid to live heroine?
2. At one point the heroine hits the hero over the head with a toilet. As a reader I know it has to be the back lid--since that is the only detachable part, but the writing wasn't clear.
3. Our hero is a bear shifter, and one might think if he is strong enough to manhandle the heroine into the trunk he would be strong enough to do so without her kicking in the top of his car. One would be wrong.
4. Heroine meets future mother-in-law who yep, wants to bake cookies. After tea.
It was a waste of 99 cents. The premise was intriguing, but this was a DNF for me.
The book was well written and interesting. It had some funny moments and some really good lines. However, I think the use of famous movie quotes was used entirely too much.
For the most part I liked the characters, although Meryn seemed A LOT younger than 34. She was incredibly immature at times. I get that she was anti-social and quirky and I think she's supposed to be a genius although that wasn't clear. However, at times it didn't come across as quirky but immature. Still I liked her and she made me laugh. However, I didn't buy that she was able to step in and start giving orders to the shifter soldiers and that they would just fall in line and listen (especially with the head of the entire Shifter Community in the room who used to be the military commander).
Aiden was a typical Alpha Shifter male who found his mate and made her his quickly. He along with the other shifters would underestimate the humans and had to learn about human lifestyles (which lead to some really funny moments in the book).
Overall this is a fun and entertaining book. I will definitely read the next in the series.
