Synopsis: April Frost is a compassionate young woman with a steady job and ambitious goals. But the harder she runs away from her past, the more it threatens to destroy her. When three strangers enter her life, April is forced to face her demons and it’s a battle she may not win.
Private investigators in the Breed world are men who take risks, and Reno Cole is no exception. As a Shifter, he’s expected to control his inner animal. But lately his wolf has been venturing dangerously close to the city, and he’s about to discover why. When Reno is reintroduced to a family friend, the attraction is immediate. April captivates him with her secretive eyes and resilient spirit. She’s also in trouble, and despite the fact she’s a human, Reno can’t turn his back on her.
April is caught between two worlds: One that threatens to bury her dreams and another that could fulfill them. Can she trust the wolf at her door and find the courage to overcome her demons?
About the Author: Dannika Dark was born on a military base in the U.S. and traveled the world before she was 9. Now she is rooted in the south but her head is planted firmly in the clouds. When she is not writing, she enjoys a great sci-fi or fantasy movie, heaps of chocolate, reading, and unleashing her dark side. Dannika loves reading paranormal romance, urban fantasy, fiction, and anything that grabs her attention.
I recently posted a review on the first book of the Seven Series, Seven Years, which I LOVED. You can find that here.
I wanted so much to love this book as much as the first one, but April just didn’t compare to Lexi as far as a heroin. I appreciate Dannika’s ability to make realistic characters, and April is very realistic in her choices. Let’s face it, every woman is NOT strong and able the way that Lexi was. But her choices in the novel made me want to strangle her. Hence…the three stars.
But Reno. Oh Reno… I really didn’t like him that much in the first book, and Dannika probably did that on purpose. He wasn’t really noticed in Seven Years and basically kept to himself. In Six Months, he comes alive. He may look scary and mean, but his affection and ability to care for April just really did it for me. Isn’t it always the scary ones that turn out soft-hearted?
His commanding nature, and then caring about her preferences…*drool*
“Take off my belt.” He said in a throaty voice. “Slide it out.” He said. “Do it slowly.” -Reno
This book isn’t overrun with sex scenes. It’s not one of those books where it goes: Girl whines. Sex. Boy whines. Sex. More sex. Even more sex. Oh here comes a plot twist! It may be getting Good. Nope. More sex. I mean…I LOVE a good sexy novel. But this is one that actually HAS a good plot line. And for that I give Dannika a big round of applause. *clap clap* AND every sex scene that is in the book is OMG hot. Like…’there’s a fire in my pants’ hot.
The villains were…questionable. Some of them I was like *nods* Ok I get it. Other it was more Really? Seems a bit…cliche.
I’m a little disappointed about Denver not being in this one as much. Probably because I absolutely adored him in the first book. I’m sure he’ll get his turn in the spotlight though. Dannika wouldn’t leave me hanging with my poor Denver getting no action…would she? Dannika…? *crickets*
