I've said it before, and I'll say it again; Charlie Richards is a bad writer. Her understanding of commas is laughable, she often gets words confused ('bazaar' instead of 'bizarre', 'viral' instead of 'virile', etc.), her characters are simplistic, and her formula never deviates... But damn if I don't enjoy finding out what happens to all these hunky, gay shifters.

Much better! While still not up to par with the author's previous stories there is a bit of her old spark here. Diego was written as the strong alpha he is, Kontra was back to his badass self and Draven went all vampire warlock! It was also nice to have Payson's snark show up.

As I've stated in previous reviews, the last few books have lacked the love and passion Charlie used to have for her characters. Readers can tell when a favorite author just throws words on a page to fill deadlines. That is
Well. I liked there was a zebra, that's pretty cool. I just felt the story was a bit more empty than some of the others. I feel like a lot of glossed over. There wasn't a lot of depth. Which isn't really a surprise, I guess. I've encountered this issue a number of times in this series and the related ones. I think part of the issue is, I had no idea who Zach was as a character/person. I knew it was a zebra shifter, younger than Diego, gay, had a limp due to childhood injury and really, that's ...more

Another couple that didn't feel a full connection with. Diego says he left his pack simply to better find his mate. Also that he wasn't really gay when joining up with Kontra. So even though his mate turns out to be male, there is no freak out and he apparently knows what to do when it comes to male sex. It just doesn't match up enough for me to NOT notice.

The not knowing about being a shifter.. the events surrounding Zack's first shift, well events proceed so fast that there's no time to 'feel'
2.5 to 3 stars I think....The book was cute and very on par with all the books in the series. I really wish The author would release the books on amazon at the same time she releases on the publisher site. it takes like an extra week to get it on Amazon and I prefer that.
This book was about Diego and his mate Zachary the Zebra (LOL) Zachary is totally unaware that he is a shifter and actually is disabled due to a leg muscle problem. Now Zachary is led to Believe that his disability was due to a

I am a little creeped out that all these fathers with grown kids seem to end up with really, really young guys. I realize that shifters in general are older, but this is becoming uncomfortable. ^^; Someone in their forties would still be way younger than Diego here, but it wouldn’t feel so very uneven and exploitative.

And really, this story reminds me strongly of the one with Tim’s father. Father with grown son (in this case grandson even) aggressively hits on very young disabled guy and tells h
this book seam slightly better than the other maybe is all the fighting who knows, any way it was alright, not much dept into anything as always so...
I like the zebra shifter, that's a new one, wonder what other type, the author with come up with next, by the way do zebras have canines?....
still trying to figure out that one...

for some reason this felt like this series' last book to me.... after all it says something about kontra settling down after so long....
if so I hope a vampire series start

Loved it.
You really are the Master of Shifter Romance.
I love the books I have come to collect from you and hope to continue to be inspired by your shifters and their mates.
