I really enjoyed this book. I often have trouble with the Romance genre, but I feel like this one really pulled out all the stops. I loved that there was action, adventure, comedy, love, romance, and crazy hot sex. There's a little bit of something for everybody, which makes this book fantastic and an overall quick read.

It was hard to get used to the random words, but if you read the glossary of terms at the begining it really helps. I didn't care for Mr. X's point of view throughout most of the book. I know it was necessary at times, but sometimes I felt like it was just thrown in there.

Besides that, I loved everything. Beth was just sassy and knew what she wanted. She didn't take any crap from anybody, which I loved. I hate when a story has a weak woman character, and she definitely was not weak in any way. I also love, love, loved Wrath. I enjoyed that he was a strong, forboding character, but really was gentle and caring deep down. The brothers were also just fabulous. I really felt for each and every one of them and am excited to read the next books in the series to see what happens to them all. Also, I loved that she kept Boo. I'm totally a cat person and it cracked me up that Phury took to the cat so well and wanted to keep him.

I highly recommend this to adult readers!
