See when a woman says "not in my bed" and runs away from you at first chance, even going so far as to break glass to get away as hard as possible, you respect that choice and you bloody well respect her. This is not a good way to start a relationship and I would be reluctant to get involved with this self-involved whiny man child who is supposedly a successful lawyer but can't understand that sometimes he has to negotiate a deal rather than ride roughshod over things.
Yes the story pulled me through and was well written but consent was a frequent road bump that made the whole difficult to appreciate. Like many others of this type that I've read recently, it was problematic but had some good aspects.
Now I could put it in werewolf if I had it, there were scenes in the woods (she runs into woods to get away from him at first), so In the Dark Dark Woods would work, also supernatural and honestly he falls into future monster, despite the werewolf thing, she's going to have to work at her self-hood and hard.
Dark Dark Woods it is.
So apart from my large plot stumbling point this wasn't bad.
My large plot stumble is the entire rightwise king of Britain and that if he returned at this time he would go to the USA? If ever Britain needed a leader to sort things out I'm sure a lot of British people would say it's now with Brexit and all the messes going on (brain wanders off on a plotbunny maze, takes a break from writing review to scribble notes) you would expect at least a passing reference to Britain and British Issues. Still I'm going to park that quibble somewhat and move onto the story.
This is the second story in the series and I haven't read volume one. Apparently Merlin did a spell that saved the fae and the mortal realms and in doing so turned the fae into soul-sucking emotionless monsters and drained the world of magic. Now magic has returned to the world and the Knights of the Round Table are resurrected (and doing medieval reinactment, and wow did that tickle my funny bone) and they're finding the modern world interesting.
This is the story of Lancelot du Lac - calling himself Dulac at the moment and Nimueh who has always loved him, somehow she retained some of her soul and this means she can love but they had huge issues last time around.
Yeay for heros who respect boundries, (mostly and better than the last two I read from Nocturne) but the story seemed unsure of it's direction and purpose, characters seemed to just drift from one scene to another and honestly Arthur didn't come across as a great leader.
It's not a bad read but it didn't make me want to read the next in the series, I didn't really care for or about the characters and wasn't unhappy when I finished it. Some of it was very good but it wasn't a good whole book.
Could use Paranormal, Vampire, Romantic Suspense, witches, demons and monsters, I'm going to go with Demons. I liked the demon, he was nicely sarky.
Rapid Pulse Collection is a collection of books about hot Alpha Males. Box sets are a favorite of mine because once in awhile you like a quick read to get you through the day or night. Even when you are having to wait it gives you a mental vacation from the time. In addition it set you up to learn about different authors. So for me I just loved this box set and working through trying to read them all.
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
