The world around the story's not enough developped to help the reader. The sex scenes were hot as always however and Aden and Darren burn the pages together. Not a bad book, just simplified. (less)

What I like: -The evolution, the construction of the relation between Aden and Darren -The description of the different battles. -The sex, yes, it's was a little too much, but well write, hot and the BDSM aspect was realist and even when Aden bottomed he remained Dom. -August seems a strong woman, sadly we didn't see her a lot.
What I didn't like: -The final battle was disappointing. Olivier died easily, it's was not impressive. -The completly lack of background (already mentionned in the prequel). No family, no friend, we know nothing of the history of the Werewolf, of Argenti. (ex: Severial time it's mentionned that Aden's old and powerful. Gail, a wolf of Aden's pack, is +/-60 years and Darren said that she's old. How old is Aden? Did Were age at the same speed than human? That's not clear) A lot of questions remains without answer.

The plot on this book is not really complex and I didn't had the impression that the writer wanted it like otherwise. The emphasis is put on the relation and the BDSM aspect. It's well researched, described, intelligent and especially well realist. The safe-sane-consensual rules are present and I like that they didn't jump one the sex the first night, especially since Garrick is new to this. I love that Faolan's a switch, again it's realist here, being a true Dom's not about who Top or bottom.
The end let us on our hunger and clearly lead to a sequel or two (Aindreas can be fun to read about or Teague clearly a sub too).
I have two complaints: The covert, girly and unappealing, sadly the case for a lot of Ellora's Cave books. The book's too short, I wanted more! Snif! (less)

I think that if it was a series instead of one book, the personages would have been better developped. The whole concept remained unclear to me and I didn't buy this whole 'I am a place' thing. I'm sad because I really wanted to like this book. The summary appeal me a lot. (less)

Something does not work here.... I have some others example but well, you get the idea.
Rafe personality do not match one I can associate with someone that lived the same life's as him. That he's curious about sex, no problem here, but he jump on butts plug, had a lack of apprehensions about anal penetration, seems to know how to seduce, how to talk sexy...I didn't buy it, that's not coherent, more since his only friends was a NUN!!! I don't add to that that's they start immediately to have sex, since it's the pattern of this writer.
The sex scene were the exact replica of all the other in the other books. Same words, same context, same kink, etc.

I've never had any problems with Total-E-Bound before, so I prefer to think that I receided an unedited book by error than to think that they did this kind of bad work on the book. The numbers of faults that I found...and I'm not even native in English. Grammatical mistakes, lost word, contiguous words (ex: 'Jordansat' instead of 'Jordan sat') personage that change of name (Azrael Lowell, p.12/135 Azrael DeLuna, p.23/135, Azrael Bannon p.116/135), the number of people in one scene that changed sudenly.
Ok, something bother me. When the pack expulsed Mika in the first book, it's because he is gay. Now, in this one, Aidan said that his brother and him try to change thing for gay (and everyone). So what, they were never a soul-mate gay couple before? That's a modern thing? I can understand being gay and not out in your pack, even if you're in love with someone (not being your soul-mate) if they're going to react badly. But what happened to the true mate?
Mika and Gare are interesting but it's was not their book. Why pass all this time on them?
Too much sex. That's make me sad because I really enjoy reading about Aidan/Zane when they didn't have sex. Zane problems's were interesting to read about. He is much more complex than he appeared at first. (less)

I love Marcus and Nathan and their relation and their personality and how they are not conventional (I mean the sex) and well, you see the portrait...
Can I try and predict the next one of the series? Alex and Sean Dobson?

Than that's continue with the cliche description of the protagonists.
And next: Carson said that they had sex 6 times the night before, when one of them declare the morning after 'it's why you didn't come last night?' My reaction was....WTF? and you didn't do anything about that the night before, you just continue you used him as a hot hole??????? And now, that morning, you continue to have sex witn him even knowing that the reason you're here it's because of the already mentioned abuse......Wow, talk about someone who give a shit about others.
Ok, It's a flamme, in the form that I want to burn the book. I tend to try to find something positive to say about a book when I don't like it because I know that the writer work on it. In this case I fell no pity. This is not the work of a writer, of someone who have a passion for telling a story, for her personages. That's the work of someone that write to sell. Well, it's seems to work since I buy (yeah, I didn't stole, I paid for that thing, see, I'm a good girl) her books. That was the last time. I'm not even sure I want to read the other that wait on my KINDLE (I hope she received something for that one)
EDIT: OMG! I try to read a little more and it's 'jump the shark' in the most beautiful way with this tentative of suicide. Wow, just wow! (less)

Since she already had sex with Beau, I understood that Aric do not have a lot of time for... (we don't know why at this time of the book and I'm not going to waste my time reading about it), so he decide to used MIND CONTROL to make her having sex with him.
He stared into her gaze. The windows of her soul opened fully to him and he mentally whispered his thoughts. Lose your reservations, Seraphina. You want me as badly as I want you, I know you do. Use me for your pleasure. Come to me, sweet. Don’t make me wait.
When a person say no and you mentally compel this person....well buddy it's call RAPE.
BUT HEY, IT'S DOESN'T MATTER SINCE HE MAKE HER FORGET EVERYTHING. Yeah, he 'justifies' himself with that one! What a gentleman!
Did not finish. I did not chose to paid for that. I didn't chose to read about that, because I don't want to read some rape scene, especially when the victim's going to endup with the rapist (if she never remember that and that Aric never said anything, he deserve to be castrate; and if she remember or if he admit it to her and she forgive him, she's stupid and he deserve to be castrate.
EDIT: I try to continue. Not a success. She decide to date the two men, since she lust after the two. That's confirm, she's stupid and a two-timer. (less)

But they have limits of making a personage a woman-with-cock cliche and this writer jump happily on it. I like it, generally, but if you try to analyse all the thing that are unbelievable or impossible or ridiculous or just plain there to make 'cute-but-inutile', this book fail in a lots of level.
And who is the Morgan brother mentioned who was kidnapped and do not like to go outside of his room now because of that? Because, on the writer site and with this book and the other we only know about three Morgan's. Chase, Donovan and Devlin. The other brother's never mentioned again. It's commune of this writer to give information or to start a plot point but to never finish it. (less)
