Five Weeks by Dannika Dark (Seven Series #3) – Review

Five WeeksSynopsis:

Destiny will find you.

Izzy has always loved the freedom and adventure of life on the road, but she’s recently decided to settle down—as much as a rogue wolf can. When her boyfriend gets her a job working at a hot Shifter bar, she runs into the last person on earth she expected to see again.

Jericho isn’t the famous rock star he once was, though he still plays in a local band and loves to party. Beautiful women come and go, but music is his only passion—until a sassy redhead named Isabelle Monroe shows up unexpectedly.

Fate reunites two former friends living with one foot in the present and the other in the past. But will they have a future when one of them is forced to choose between life and death? Old habits die hard, and sometimes the toughest addictions to shake are the ones that control our hearts.

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.

My Review: Four Hearts rating

And Dannika Dark does it to me again *smh*. Another book down in the Seven Series and I’m even more in love with the Cole Brothers, and the Weston Pack as a whole. Dannika has this way of almost completely ignoring these characters in the current book, but when they have their own book they shine.

In the other books, I hated Jericho Cole. He was an ass, he did drugs, played rock and roll, and just seemed like you’re typical low-life. How Dannika was able to turn him around into the hero he was in this book? *sigh* I have no clue. But she wove him in to my poor sentimental heart and somehow turned him into this oober sexy beast. It’s not an awkward transition. He doesn’t go from this horrible person to the best person ever, but he just changes for Izzy…because that’s what love does right?

Izzy was pretty awesome. I loved her attitude, and just her overall outlook on life. Her relationship with Jericho seemed completely realistic. At least to me it was. They have this past together where they lived with each other for years, and Jericho was her best friend. After they separated, they never forgot one another. Isn’t that how the ‘one that got away’ story usually goes?

The ‘villains’ just made the story so much better. It was a completely believable storyline, and this one seemed to blow Reno/April’s out of the water. Izzy dated a seemingly awesome guy, only to find out he’s wading in deep waters with a weight around his ankle…and it’s also around Izzy’s. When things go south, he comes after Izzy and so do the people after him. So who comes to save the day? Not only Jericho, but the whole Weston pack comes to the rescue.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I really just want to say that this series has become one of my favorites. I love a good shifter story, and this one has risen above and beyond a lot of the books out there now. It’s exciting, sensual, and keeps you captured the whole time.Signature

So now on to the next book in the series: Four Days
