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?!
Flint is described as an alpha male but manages to come across, at times, also as a Neanderthal! Jessica is a woman with a good career path both behind and in front of her but gives it up in the blink of an eye once she finds out that Flint is her mate with apparently no regrets.
I found this book to be quite dull with a lot of cliches. The idea of native Alaskans of which some can turn into werewolves sounds better in theory than the reality that this book shows.
I can handle the poorly written prose, the odd sentence structuring and childish use of words. But the plot, asinine dialogue and character non-development was LMAO funny.
Heroine: So we have our heroine, Jessica Tandy, who thinks in normal Western civilised culture one goes about introducing themselves to total strangers by mentioning how much they earn.... Well sweety - we all may have met a few people like that but they're considered ill-bred show off's whom no one would consider a model of propriety and good conduct!
Jessica Tandy goes into a bar and meets the hero (Flint Clawsomething) and introduces herself by mentioning that she earns $50k. I was embarrassed on her behalf!
She's a blonde, fragile, beautiful cliche and also a bimbo. Her childish monologues, ridiculous observations, and immature dialogue was cringe-worthy and irritating to read e.g. "I want to eat you" comebacks- I mean seriously.
Hero: he's a replica of a cliched historical-cheap-romance Native American caricature-bodice-ripper-hero - the whole long black hair, doesn't-speak-very-good-English, Neanderthal type.
I feel terrible on behalf of all Native Americans. The author manifested his "Native" culture in the most insulting manner that again was cringe-worthy to read. His speech, ignorance and sexist attitude was shocking.
English clearly isn't his first language but that still doesn't explain his stilted and hick speech. And what's with the whole "does your MATE provide for you.Read more ›
The conversations are wooden.
And the end? What is that all about? Did the author loose sight that its a story and not an endless boring email to a friend?
Such a good idea wasted!

While the book was well written, it was not very original. It was a take off of the Twilight series with the guardian werewolvesPublished 11 months ago by Caz
Quite enjoyed this book. May decide to look out for the rest of the series. However found this story a bit rushed.Felt it could have been expanded more.Published on 13 Nov. 2014 by voracious reader

I DID NOT LIKE THIS BOOK .
IT IS A MATER OF WHAT YOU LIKE AND DON'T.
IT THE STORY IS HARD TO FOLLOW AND IS DISAPPOINTING
To be fair I'd never have bought this book as werewolves are not my thing but I did like the story well enough. It's a short sweet tale with no real drama but still entertaining. Read morePublished on 13 Jan. 2014 by Helen
It jumps a bit at the end, however, the story is entertaining and sweet with some humour mixed in. A good book and really nice romance too boot.Published on 8 Aug. 2013 by Trinity1
