Book Description: When people need help or are injured, they call out for their friends and family. When an animal needs help or is injured, it calls out for…anyone…that can help them…
One person hears them…
Tabitha is determined to bury her aching heart in the service of her animals at Exotic Landscape. Until she’s yanked out of her cozy retreat to help someone in need…and she gets more than she bargained for.
Detective Ronin Chandler understands secrets. He’s got a few of his own. But when the woman he loves gets into trouble – the kind that stretches even his belief system – he struggles to understand…and to help…before he loses her. Maybe forever.
As the danger escalates, Tabitha and Ronin need to find out who they can trust…and who they can’t…and who wants them dead…before it’s too late.
Captivation: I was really hopeful with this one, being intrigued by animals in general… however, I was quickly disappointed. I hit chapter 3 and started a downward spiral of semi-boredum and exasperation.
Sizzle: The pattern continues with book 6. Somewhere between a chic lit and a romance, the sizzle scene reads like a quickie with b-rating scenes after.
Romance: This relationship is perhaps the most frustrating of all of the books in the series so far, at least for me. The main characters’ relationship development felt completely unreal and unnatural given their inner thoughts and feelings.
Enjoyment: I had such high hopes for this book, but finished it really disappointed. There is so much potential here and it was just not there.
Literacy: I found quite a lot of word, spelling, and grammatical errors in this one. And saw a couple of chronological errors where sections seemed out of place. Not as disordered as book 3, but still distracting.
Overall, This book left a lot to be desired. I was super frustrated with the main characters, the lack of relationship building, and the loss of potential this plot could have been. So very frustrating. The only good note I really have about this book is that the next is Stefen’s story and I’ve been waiting for it.
