2.5 stars rounded up to 3 stars. Okay destined mate story. Felt a bit disjointed at times and I was left vaguely dissatisfied by the romance aspect. Overall it was okay though.
2.5 stars. I didn't particularly like any of the characters, tbh. There was so much trauma in the MCs' pasts but they came across as unpleasant instead of sympathetic. Many sex scenes had elements of dubious consent that bothered me, particularly the barebacking scene.It was well written in general,...
Maybe it was the weather, but I found this book to be depressing, and just not my cup of tea. My friend told me the later books are better, and if I get them for free I might give them a try.
I enjoyed this shifter story and it felt different than a lot of the shifter stories out there, I'll definilty be reading more of Joely Skye's books.
