It was a fun read, with shifters and a bit of heat and romance. It a fun, but short read. Sadly I found the book a bit rushed. It was like the book was put in fast forward, conflict got brought up in a conversation and resolved in the same conversation. One date was enough for them to fall in love and the whole conflict of why they couldn't be together got resolved in the next chapter after it got brought up. There is a twist at the end that lacked the impact it could have. The whole lion shifter thing got hardly explored. It just felt a bit too fast. There wasn't time to really get to know the characters, feel the romance and get to experience the scenery.
And even though the story felt rushed, I still enjoyed it. While the pace is fast there are still attempts to put some personality in the characters, with how Serena is shy and interested in animals and Colin feels like he doesn't quite fit into the high society and likes how down to earth serena is. And while I would've liked to get to know the characters better, I liked that they both had their own personality. There were also some interesting side characters and I wondered if some of these would get their own story.
So the characters did have some personality and I did think they made for a good couple, I just wanted things to slow down a bit, so I would have more time to spend with them, see them getting to know each other and see more of the setting as now it didn't come alive as much as I hoped. I did have a pretty vivid visual of how the lodge looked, but that's mostly because of what my mind conjured up and a few details we got.
I thought the setting was original as I don't think I've read a book set in Kenya before. I also liked how it featured a lion shifter in a country these animals naturally occurred. The book was well written and enjoyable even though it was fast paced. And I do plan to pick up the rest of the series.
To summarize: This book is great for when you want a short, but fun romance set in Kenya. I had fun reading this book, the setting in Kenya was unique and it felt like the author knew what she talking about. The characters had enough personality to get a bit of a feel for them and their romance was sweet and had a bit of heat. Sadly I felt like the whole story was told on the fast forward stand. The whole book felt a bit rushed, like everything went by a bit too fast and I would've liked more time to really experience everything, get to know the characters and see some topics be more explored. It is well written and made for a enjoyable read and I do plan to check out more of this author's work.
A wonderful love story worth reading.
I guess the author attempted to give the reader more background information, but I had my usual grievances because I like my (romance) novels long and wordy because then I can get into the characters' heads and understand them better. Due to the shortness of this novella and the fact that the author wrote more about our heroine doing some chores, I simply didn't get a feel for the relationship aspect of things.
Also, the African setting? Almost non-existent in my opinion as there were a few mentions of a lion here or there, but you can take a hot bath or do some chores practically anywhere. I definitely expected more from it.
