AN UNEXPECTED AFFAIR -
Third person POV. Poor Derek, he's a bit clueless in what to do with himself in the beginning, but is such a softy sweetheart behind the gruff front he puts up. Clarice is a bit fanciful, but enjoyable. Both characters were absolutely wonderful. There really was not a lot in the way of secondary characters, allowing the main focus to remain on the lead couple. The chemistry, while progressing at a steadily aggressive rate, was something both denied until they just could not anymore, a refreshing change to other similar stories. Dialogue felt natural and appropriate. The plot was full and complete, for being a novella of this short length and it was written extremely well - so smooth and fluid. There really were not a lot of conflicts other than internal struggles, but they managed in efficient and mature ways. No predictability. The conclusion allows Derek and Clarice their HEA, but there's a nice big opening for A DANGEROUS BUSINESS to pick it right up at the end. Although not a *huge* fan of paranormal, I honestly would love to read the next book in this saga to see if my suspicions are correct. Thank you, Ms. Moone, for the opportunity to read your work.
Rating: R / Score: 4.3 / Stars: 4
A DANGEROUS BUSINESS -
Third person POV. Novella > under 100 pages. Can stand alone, but it would be better to read in order.
It's been 15 years since his parents died and Aiden is still searching for the answers that tie their death to the Sons of Domnall, now as a member of the Alliance. The Rannock Alpha has sent Heidi, his own daughter, to be the wolf representative for the Alliance, to watch and insure balance for all shifter species. Neither Aiden nor Heidi ever expected to find their mate in their Alliance partner. Both lead characters are strong and mostly smart. The secondary characters include Derek and Clarice (book 1) as well as a few new ones. The chemistry is instantaneous, although they both try to avoid it at first. Dialogue is very good, so it character interaction. The plot felt more like a serial episode that a complete story. There are many loose ends and open possibilities in every direction. Flow is very smooth and easy to read. The conflict is not easy to ignore, but somehow it is avoided as a non-issue. HEA is implied, but never seen through yet. Already, ADB is leading the reader into AFL. This one just did not feel as complete as AUA, and the serial aspect to the ending is much more pronounced in this one, leading to some disappointment. I'd recommend this series to those love smart and well thought out shifters, BUT I'd suggest you wait until the series is released in it's entirety to read as one full-length novel instead of several micro-novellas.
Rating: PG-13 / Score: 3.8 / Stars: 4
A FORBIDDEN LOVE -
Third-person POV narrative. Jamie is a werebear and the Alliance leader in Edinburgh. Alison is the human "informant". Both have secrets. Secondary characters consist mostly of those we've met or have been told about in the previous two novellas.
The lead characters are only just strong enough to carry the novella. I'm not sure what it is about this installment of the "series", but it fell a bit flat for me. As with this series, the chemistry is magnetic and attraction is immediate. Maybe because a chunk of the plot was already preset in the last book? Maybe because we know almost all of the characters? I'm not sure. The secondary cast was supportive and provided crucial gap-fillers. The plot felt flat; without the dimension and dynamics one would hope for in a longer story, but it *is* a quick read and provided enough content to make it through. The first third of the book lagged, but the pace eventually picked up and finally provided a smooth ride. There were some conflicts, but there's really no going against the mating bond, so in actuality, the conflicts are rendered moot. A minor secondary story line is cast out and resolved within the primary story, also giving indication that it'll be the next book in the series. Predictability was moderate. The conclusion is passable. While giving Jamie and Alison their assumed happily ever after, we are left with many openings: Matty's reunion, the prisoners swearing vengeance upon both Alison and the Alliance, the Alliance's threat to the recent odd matings. Though this was not my favorite volume of the ongoing saga, I do look forward to learning more about Matty and what he's been up to in Glasgow. Overall, I think I'd only recommend this series to others once all volumes or installments are out. Ms. Moone states that it can be read as a stand-alone, but I truly feel that you'd lose a lot of the comprehension of the ongoing story if you picked it up half-way through.
Rating: PG-13+ / Score: 3.9 / Stars: 4
Overall - Not a bad series, thoughtful shifter process. Humor and adventure. Novellas are quick paced and not very complex. Character types are varied. Predictability is passable. I'd suggest reading the "series" as a whole rather than trying to read them as individual stories.
Overall rating: PG-13+ / Score: 4.0 / Stars: 4
