This one was a bit of a cheesy hot mess. Example, this is a story about two bear shifters. Their names are Brian and Blake...wait for it...wait for it...Brian & Blake BEAR Get it, cause they are BEAR shifters...
BRIAN was a douchnoodle of EPIC proportions. Let me share some of his wonderful nuggets of douchedom.
"As he spoke to Gwen, his eyes never left Susie’s. Brian was puzzled because she wasn’t model material by any means, and he couldn’t understand the feelings he had as soon as he saw her. He’d never been interested in someone who wasn’t an absolutely gorgeous front cover model. If someone asked him to describe Susie in one word, it would be…cute."
"She was his mate. It explained why she smelt like his favourite food and he found her gorgeous when usually he wouldn’t even glance her way."
"No, honey, you smell like heaven to me. We recognise our mates from their smell, and I was also attracted to you instantly even though you’re not my usual type. I usually only date models or women who could model."
Gosh, I don't know about you all, but I just CAN'T figure out why Brian isn't up for mate of the year!?
The we have BLAKE who likes his women "THICK" and he REALLY likes the women. He's a manwhore extreme. He sleeps with clients. He fucks them in his office at the gym. They are everywhere. And we are told repeatedly about them. Even the real estate agent that helps them find a house is one of the women he has slept with. The heroine even forces him to apologize to the woman for not calling her after sleeping with her three times. All the while he is sleeping with others at the same time..I mean WTF?
This poor girl really lucked out in the mate department let me tell you.
On top of ALL that the writing was choppy and ALL over the place. Storylines were never resolved (umm Taylor anyone??) Brian and Blake's mom is a bitch, then all of a sudden she isn't.
Ugh. I can't believe I am going to even say this, but I am really tempted to read the next one just to see how craptastic it compares to this one.
