I'd never read anything by Gena Showalter before but, since I've always heard great things about her titles, I was sure this book would have amazed me. That was a very wrong guess from my part. I shouldn't have had high expectations in the first place, I would have avoided the disappointment...maybe.
At first, I thought it was going to be an exciting read. I was eager to live the pre-announced adventure in a fantasy world with magical creatures and I couldn't wait for the action to kick in but, suddenly, an ongoing back and forth of 'Mine' started... Now, I do love alpha males and, let's be honest, their possessiveness is what captivates us the most, but it kinda lost its power/charm in here. 'Mine' was a word used too easily and it sounded way repetitive, like the dialogues between the couple. For me Nicolai wasn't a hero to fall for and Jane's concerns and her constant mind ramblings were annoying most of the times.
I liked the idea, the plot was there but the development was very disappointing, and sometimes confusing. Nevertheless, even if this book didn't do well for me, I feel like I should not give up on Showalter just yet.
