First I want to thank the author, Christina Smith, for providing me with an ecopy of this book for an honest review. I don't know if I would have read the book otherwise just because of the subject of werewolves. See, I'm not a fan of werewolf books. I'm pretty open to all other paranormal beings, ok, vampires are not a fav either, but for some reason, I just can't get into werewolves.
I was given the ebook, and of course, I read the prequel first, Riley's Curse, which I absolutely loved. Right after finishing, I jumped into this book. I was really hoping to continue on the bar set by that book. Unfortunately, it just didn't happen for me. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed Riley's Secret, but the story just wasn't at the same level. Actually, I really wouldn't call this book much of a werewolf book, but if I go more into that I'd be giving away some spoilers, and I hate spoilers!
On to the story. Rich girl hangs with the rich crowd, but really doesn't like them. A harmless prank shows her what her friends are really like. She goes into community service, finds she likes it, and finds herself falling for the untouchable boy from school. Attractive, but unsociable at school, he has a way with things at the home he works at. Yes, this is Riley, and yes, he's a werewolf, but she doesn't know it. This is one area the story seems to drag on. Okay, as we know, they do fall for each other, than shortly thereafter all hell breaks loose. Now, this is where the story takes off, unfortunately, this is also about 80% into the book.
Now, would I recommend this book? Yes. To whom? Anyone who likes paranormal romance. Would I read the next book? Yes. I feel that this story can go far, and there are story lines that I want to know more about. I feel that the reader has all the backstory they could possibly need on the main characters that the story can only get fresher, faster, and crazier.
