“So much different than I expected, but in a good way. Lusty in the Nicky Charles way, but not random or over the top. I enjoyed the read, and the big WHY has me interested in the next prequel.”Felicia wrote this review Saturday, September 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Brandi finds herself attracted to an instructor at her were school but the attraction turns out to be more than that. Jobs and more will not allow them to leave each other alone. When they are thrown together the sparks fly. Add in a little mystery and some deception to get a story that is more than just a romance.
Now this story is advertised as the prequel to The Mating. It is, but it is not all about the characters that you meet in The Mating. You basically get a little of Kane and his brother. That's all. So don't expect to read details about the younger years of those men or anyone else. You just get a little bit of that. That being said, it is still a very good story and can be read before or after The Mating. It will not affect anything you read for either one.
The characters in this book were very unique though I wanted to slap the two main characters. I mean come on. Forget what you think you are or what you think the other person is thinking. Talk to each other. Then again, if they communicated we wouldn't have such a good book. Still, drove me crazy.
There are some hot scenes and a little language, but overall it was clean. It focused more on the mental and emotional side of the relationship and the mystery surrounding Purists than it did with intimate scenes. They were there but were solely to add to the plot. I don't like sex scenes just to have the physical interactions. It has to bring value to the story.
This is a paranormal story about werewolves. It's not a love triangle. It's not someone fighting their genetic makeup. This is about people coming to grips with their own lives, their own feelings, and learning to love others.
I enjoyed this story. It was different than The Mating, but in a good way. Don't go into it thinking it is the same, and you'll find that you'll want more.
Note: I purchased this book with my own funds with no expectation from anyone else for a positive review. ”
“I'm giving this four stars because the story line was really good, well developed and actually left me wanting more. I didn't care for the characters though and almost didn't finish reading. But the story kept drawing me in. I'm glad I finished it and I'm even starting the next one. I hope it doesn't disappoint. ”Kyra wrote this review Wednesday, May 29, 2013.

“I read the entire series in just 2 weeks... I really liked this! My first werewolf books and I was not disappointed!!”Justine S wrote this review Sunday, April 28, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“A smooth reading novel that gives insight into the hierarchy of the Lycan society(werewolves). The storyline contains just enough mystery, adventure and romance to keep the reader pleasantly engaged. The main characters had strong personalities and exhibited believable behaviors. This novel is the first in the Lycan series that contains four novels. ”Jacqueline Jackson wrote this review Friday, April 19, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
