Entertaining, but nothing new...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Claimed (The Circulate Series) (Kindle Edition)
City girl Jessica is on a camping trip in Alaska with her boyfriend, but after splitting up from him in a bar, native Flint steps in to take her to Anchorage so that she doesn't miss her flight home to Washington.
From here on out it's case of read-it-before-many-times blah, blah, blah...
CLAIMED is a short romantic fantasy, so yeah, obviously the story is going to be focused on the, ahem, romantic angle and the plot is rather basic and predictable, with the whole city life versus native life and damsel in distress angle, but it is still an enjoyable tea-break read.
The main criticism I have is how the two main characters talk to each other; Jessica in particular. At times she just comes off as whiny and bitchy, switches from one man to another way too easily and do you really tell strangers in bars how much you earn and ask them how well off they are? [the answer should be no].
As for Flint the whole referring to partners as mates and "men should provide for the women" and "the woman gives the man children" alpha male stuff turns me off - it's why I approach werewolf stories with caution...
Also some of the sex scenes include such gems as "what are you waiting for, take me, gosh dammit", "I haven't showered in five days" and "I want to eat you more!"...
Finally, the spelling and grammar is fine for the most part, but I just had to find some way to include this following line in my review; "I felt silly, like I was a girl losing her virginity for the first time...". Wait - it grows back?!
