After being ditched only weeks before her wedding, Cassie Stockwell wasn’t out looking for a hookup. Then the devastatingly handsome bartender she’d been trying not to obsess over for months offered to give her a ride home. What could one night hurt?
When his future was almost taken away after one impulsive decision, wolf-shifter Jace Miller waited patiently for months before making a move on the woman he knew to be his destined mate. But will one night of passion keep his little human by his side once she learns of his world and the danger it brings to her doorstep?
This book is dry and straight the point. Dry dialog. Dry story line. Just all around dry. Cassie goes from questioning every little thing about Jace to falling “hard” for him over night. There was no build up and very little wooing. Cassie continued to be so clinical towards Jace that she didn’t even second guess harming him. Then she wakes up and suddenly can’t live without him? Between the writing errors (I at times had to assume what was meant to be written) and the less than stellar story telling I had to force myself to finish this book. I wish the plot had been carried through better. The idea of a rag tag pack just trying to help each other through the hard times could have been great...25
This was my first shifter book. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I absolutely loved this story. This story was steamy, intense, and suspenseful. The characters draw you in, and you will instantly fall in love with the two main characters. Even the side characters are something truly fantastic. This story is fast paced, but definitely unforgettable. This story really won me over towards a genre that I always assumed I wouldn’t like. I was so wrong. I’m hooked, and I can wait to get absorbed in more books just like this one. I’m looking forward to reading more of this genre, and most importantly, this author!55
I love this book. Want more of this series. It’s not available. Why?55
I really enjoyed this book. The story was strong, the world building creative and solid. It was just different enough from my usual reads to feel refreshing. I adored Jace and Cassie and really want to learn more about the other characters. That being said, the editor in me had a hard time keeping edit mode shut off at times. Simple things like inconsistent spelling of character names drove me bonkers. Is it Mabel or Mable? This would be a simple fix, and it irritates me when something that glaring is missed. Had it been one instance, I'd let it go, bit this spelling flipped back and forth multiple times. Overall, a strong first book, and I do plan to continue the series. I will read Book 2 soon. I did not expect Mercury to be next! I can't wait to meet the gal who hooks him.!35
I truly enjoyed this story. I found Jace and Cassie charming and very real. I will look for more books by Marie Johnston.55
Cassie is smart and tough. I prefer to read about stronger women. She was so well written. LOVED her. Sexy Jace. Knew his mate from the first page and did what he needed to do to get her. Very patient man. Also very, very protective. This was such an exciting story. Suspenseful love story. Will keep you reading from beginning to end. Enjoy!55
Loved the characters and storyline. But the whole book was full of typos, mostly left-out words. Otherwise would have been 5 stars. Could easily see this as a movie in my mind.45
This was a great book... No true cliffhangers. It was well written and I would love to continue with the series. The characters were diverse and the author made me want to know more about the secondary characters and read their stories.. You won't be disappointed with this book.45
Liked the story line and loved the characters. Will probably follow the series. However, it needs an intelligent human to proofread and edit carefully (not just rely on spellcheck). There are several instances of missing and/or extra words, causing confusion. Please correct grammar for pronouns ("She and I" for subjects showing action; "her and me" as objects of prepositions) and for verb tenses (should've GONE, not should've went). Sorry to be a nit picker.45
