I have previously read and enjoyed the authors grabbed series (vicious, menace and venom) and they are hard to top. This stand alone novel has a different feel and a different setting. The main characters were both believable and likeable. Their relationship developed over the course of the book in a heartwarming way with no annoying insta-love or fated mates nonsense. The background universe was rich and well rounded, but the emphasis remained on the characters and story rather than extraneous technical detail. The plot line was gripping, well paced and believable and the H/h earned their happy ever after. Warning: there is sex. I thought it was well written, in keeping with the story and not excessive but it is explicit.
