I’ve read a lot of vampire novels and a lot of werewolf novels. It’s actually incredibly difficult to pick up a paranormal fantasy book that doesn’t have some aspect of these two beings interacting. But I have never read a book on a hybrid between the two. It was refreshing to have a slightly new take on the topic, although, much of the storyline seemed slightly familiar.

I liked this book, but it is not one that I would read again and again and again. It was well thought out with loveable characters, but it also relied a lot on sex throughout the storyline. I love well-written romance and sexual tension, but this went beyond. Sexual liberation is amazing, but it didn’t do much to further the storyline, at least, in my opinion. As an adult, I still enjoyed reading the scenes and thinking about the woman whose mind created such intimate moments between the pages.

One of my favourite aspects of this book is the incredible sibling bond that is highlighted. Riley risks everything to ensure her brothers safety. They are misfits and it is so sweet that in all of the world, they forever have each other – complete, unconditional love.
