Dani takes you in depth with her story and characters. As I started reading I found I couldn’t put it down, I just had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen next. What I liked best was the little girl Anya and how Dani tied her with the hero and heroine Josh and Kenzie. It was fantastic. The villains have the perfect roll to give this book the action it needed. Dani has created a world that will keep growing with characters. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next to read.

I never found Anya getting in the way of the storyline or romance. Like I stated she adds more to the story than what I thought possible. This little girl had me in tears at times. I’m just so happy that she got the ending that she deserved. Now, I need to go bug Dani and hope maybe she’ll give Anya her own story one day because she seams really special because from what I read we’ll be reading more of Anya in the future for sure.

It’s always nice to read when the hero is the human. Josh is a very determined man and will stop at nothing to get what he thinks is his, even if that’s calling his future mate’s brothers for help. Yep, that was so cute. I really liked Josh from the beginning; he’s not only determined but hot and very caring. Kenzie is a loner and has to really work on letting Josh in. I really liked Kenzie. She’s very caring, even though she has a small chip on her shoulder that she should mate with another Changeling not a human. So you get some good tension between these too, some of it even funny at times. I found these two really seemed to fit together. They start out with sexual tension and it builds from there and by the time you get to the sex scenes they are really hot.

I highly recommend this book. This book can be read as a standalone.

I have never done this before but I have to give a huge "thank you" to Dani for sending me this book. She knew at the time she did so I had rated her first two books in this series a 3, which is not bad in any way but a few authors and readers think 3's are the end of the world or the kiss of death when they really aren't. But Dani took a chance and sent this book for me to pick away at. So, I am here to commend her for taking a chance because most authors fly the coop when they get a 3 rating once, let alone twice.

After reading this book I am in awe at the depth Dani wrote. The first two are good but to me they read like the average paranormal romance book, but this one give me that different wow factor that put it a 5. Dani, you told me in the email that this was your best book yet and I totally agree this is the best one in the series. I know the next one will be even better. Keep those beta readers ;)


  1. I really need to get going on this series. I've heard so much about it and now you gave it the top bite award. I'm adding it to my TBR pile. Thanks for the review.
