An OK start to the series
I have mixed views about this book. It wasn’t a bad story, and even the shock of the different parties jumping on each other when first met didn’t put me off (I’d just come away from reading a slow-burn story, so the change of pace always comes with a bit of necessary mental adjustment).
It was a cute little story of “fated mates”, where a unicorn shifter, who doesn’t even really know what she is, having never actually seen herself in a mirror, due to the nature in which she found out she was a shifter and not having had time to be taught what it meant, is, erm, where was I? Yes, this unicorn shifter, with a complicated background, meets a pack of mountain lion shifters, who teach her not only about shifting and what it means to be a shifter, but also about love, and plenty of hot sex.
This is a story that’s all about the “meating” (can I throw meeting/mating/meat all into one?!). The characters are thrown together, have sex a couple of times, and we find out a bit of background. This means that we find out a lot in such little space, which doesn’t leave much space for actual character development (more sexual than character development. Ahem).
Then there’s the time jump at the end, which leaves a feeling of incompleteness. So much more could have been put into the story, to develop it further, which is a bit of a shame, really.
All in all, this doesn’t make it a bad story, but it doesn’t make it a concrete one. I really hope for a bit more development in the next book in the series.
Final rating: ★★★☆☆ – Sort of liked/OK
