The first one was enjoyable. The pace was good until the very end. Once Vlad is dead and they wake up back at his parents place, the relationship that started out steady and authentic rushed like the author had to suddenly end the story. It was like the moment she was safe her personality completely changed and she became more aggressive. She came on strong and he just followed, where for most of the book, he was the aggressor and she followed. I got the feeling that the author had to suddenly end the story and in a blink she did. I would have preferred him to be the one to make the final move once she was safe. The role reversal made the whole story kind of lose it for me. And I don’t understand the whole tranquilizer part at the end on the roof. Why did her grandpa want both of them shot with tranquilizers when the danger was over? It didn't make much sense at that point and to the end. Other than that, it was good.
Book 2 was quick. It moved fast and definitely had a middle of a series vibe. It also has a novella feel to it, but the concept and conflict were good. The character development was good, though some things were clearly already established prior to page one. I liked it but I would have liked a bit more build up and a few things explained more. I didn’t realize she knew about shifters from the beginning, so I wasn’t sure how that was going to play out. The reader definitely needs to go in knowing some things which made it hard to fall in love with, because I did feel like I was missing out on some important information.
Book three in the anthology I think was my favorite of the three. It hadz strong characters, an entertaining plot, the conflict was believable and carried the story. They definitely had some emotional tension to work out before they could have a happily ever after. Their chemistry was strong and well developed and there was plenty of passion. Overall, best of the three stories all the way around and enjoyable.
