Primal Desires (Primes #6)
In Las Vegas, Jason Cage is known as "The Beast Master." But his onstage feats of magic are nothing compared to the abilities he keeps hidden from human eyes. Jason is Prime of his vampire family, and once used his telepathic skills to tame wild...more
Primal Desires suffers from lack of focus, too many threads, un-interesting flashbacks, and from too many characters stealing the spotlight from the main romance. Where I normally enjoy the complexity and depth that multiple threads bring to a story, here the threads are superficial and the switching back and forth between so many different characters and flashing back not only bogged down the pace, but also left no room for the interesting scene I would ...more
Sophia is not a likeable character. She is too flimsy to be considered a strong female character, and all her character had was her blog and mentioning twice her college. Twice. What was her major? Minor? And why did she have a blog about reviewing classic stories? Anyone ...more
I adored Sofia. I thought that, although it was quite a bit to take in at the beginning for her, she adjusted quickly and quite well. Strong in mind and body, she manages to make sense of everything thrown her way and finally accepts what she is. What I thought was really neat with Sofia was how Sizemore turned her into one of us bookaholics, where Sofia even has a blog of her own where she reviews books and movies. I thought it was really touching to ...more
I so remember why I didn't finish this series right away. It just reads like an old woman or my mom would write a romance book. Cheesy, not really dated, but will be dated because of Harry Potter references etc. Romance skimmed over like they were afraid their kids might read it an be all embarrassed.
Anyway, this was an animal tamer vamp guy from Las Vegas who receives half of a coin amulet & knows what its about. He meets the woman with the other half when they are both summoned t ...more

I found this one chaotic.
There were far too many characters, too many pairings, too many flashbacks that were inserted without fair warning and, despite the author's clear desperation, there was no plot.
Most series have one or two books which are not up to standard in comparison to the rest of the series. Sadly, I think 'Primal Desires' is one of those books.
An average book for me, but as I didn't enjoy it, for whatever reason, I only rated it 2stars, over my usual 3stars for an average good read.
I have to say I liked the Vampire/Werewolf clan struture she's got set up and the mating/social structure. I plan to buy the first 5 books and (and the short story: Tempting Fate) read the series in order. I'm adding her to my short list of romance authors.
