This is the follow up to "Cry Sanctuary" Cry Sanctuary: Book 1 of Red Rock Pass series. The first thing I'll say is that this was a better book- the story was smoother and the pacing was more consistent. It is a fast read and not the best example paranormal romance, but intriguing enough to keep me interested in the series.
Basically, this series is a solid werewolf romance series. There is something comforting in knowing what you are getting. Ms. Rogers manages to make the political landscape of this world complex enough to add a little depth, but the main story lines are reliable. If you are looking for a light read and hot, but not terribly complicated romance, you won't be disappointed.
I was not as drawn to the characters of Brynn and Joe as I was to Kieth and Amanda, but the plot in this book just made more sense. The decisions the characters made and the sequence of events were logical- unlike book 1 where I felt some things happened that wouldn't have if the characters had been smarter. Joe and Brynn are not as strong as the first couple and in places Brynn's more submissive nature can be grating. I think how you react to her might depend on how dominant you are as a reader. Me- I could understand how she felt about being weak, but I didn't identify with her inability to articulate this in any other way than being cranky. This is a bit of a drawback, but in the end it is offset somewhat by a clever bit of writing as her character develops. I won't give away any plot points, but I will say she becomes more interesting the more you read. I can't say it was resolved, but perhaps her role within this pack community will become more clear- maybe she will have some redeeming role and responsibilities that make her not being an alpha more bearable. It will be interesting to see how she develops in later books.
