Toni doesn’t know how she keeps getting herself into these situations. But even she has to admit there’s something about Ricky Lee Reed that she finds kind of interesting…and downright sexy. Now they just have to survive long enough to figure out if what they have is worth fighting for…
Ricky is a laid back kind of guy and whilst he loves his somewhat wayward Pack, he's enjoying his new life in a security firm in New York. When visiting his brother he can't help but be intrigued by the lovely Jackal female with the most amazing hair; but more importantly such a unique manner with people. Yes, Ricky may not be looking for a Mate or anything but with this female around, life sure is entertaining! Toni starts her new job but Ricky is never far away and as their friendship blossoms, Toni's skills get well and truly put to the test!
This is a book that has so many characters, with so many names to remember, that it made my head spin! Lots of characters from previous books show up with often truly funny consequences but I'm not sure if that was slightly overkill. It's a gentle romance that just sort of creeps up and I guess I missed the fireworks and chemistry; but Toni is an amazing heroine and Ricky just made me smile.
As for Toni's family, well in true shifter style they are totally neurotic, obscenely self obsessed and absolutely hilarious! Add in the mystery surrounding Toni's best friend Liv, and her unusual sister, Delilah, and it made for a different book to the ones I usually read by Ms Laurenston. Not really a great romance and if honest, much as I really liked the two central characters, I felt it lacked a solid storyline. Still you can guarantee I will keep reading Ms Laurenston's books because for sheer laugh out loud pleasure there's none better!
