(I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads giveaways).
(This review may contain spoilers).
Although these two stories were quite short, I did find them to be really quick and easy to read. The idea of werecreatures and paranormal romance isn’t unique, but I still quite enjoyed this book.
It was interesting to see the two different types of werecreatures, though I would have liked to know if there were more than just the wolves and the panthers. The rivalry between Sheila and Lorraine was quite amusing to see. I thought it was good that they still had the human parts to themselves as well as the werecreature aspects.
I did really like how both stories overlapped, though I felt that the first story didn’t really seem to end. The conflict was resolved, but I felt it was a bit too quick. I would have liked to see the story expanded a bit more.
The second story did seem to be expanded a bit more, but I felt the love came a bit too quickly. It was nice to see that there was compromise on both sides of the pairing, though. And it was interesting to see arranged marriages that did turn out well, as opposed to a lot of books where the arranged marriages are to really horrible people.
I did have quite a lot of questions about what had happened with Calla in particular. I would have liked to see more of her and Caleb together.
It was also good to get a sneak peek of one of the other books, though I preferred the style of the paranormal romance. I liked the aspects of experimentation, especially in the first story. And I felt there was a lot of chemistry between the different pairs of characters.
I probably would read more books set in this world in particular. I liked the glimpses into the society of the werepanthers, though it would have been nice to see a bit more of the werewolf society. And there were some really good minor characters in this book, too.
I did notice some errors in the writing, but they weren’t really enough to detract from my enjoyment of the book. There was some confusion with one particular line, though.
