Disclaimer:

"See, here's the problem...I have a love/hate relationship with the Breed books. I really need more plot than porn sex and I was ready to cross this series off my list but my vbff, V, told me to give her four favorite books a chance and I'm glad I listened to her."

So that's what I said when I read Dawn's Awakening and I'm still glad I listened to her.

While this book certainly has a whole espionage tale with someone stealing information and who knows what else, the heart of the story is about Mercury and Ria. Mercury supposedly mated with someone else while he was in the labs and they were killed. He then went crazy and had to be put on rage reducing drugs which messed with his animal. As Ria always points out, "You're supposed to be the nice Breed." and that's what he's become until Ria shows up. Not that he isn't nice, but she makes his animal come out to play.

I really enjoyed Mercury. I don't know why but there is just something about him. Now Ria is another matter. I just never liked her. Sure when everything happened, I felt sorry for her and I thought maybe she was coming around. But then we find out about her and the "B" is back. Too Bad.

Another part I really enjoyed was all the Breeds coming together, especially when The Leo and his family showed up. I would've liked more of him but at least we got to know more about Dane. I got such a kick out of all the brothers harassing each other and hopefully there will be more. I was also really intrigued by Lawe and Rule.

Yes, there still is the over the top sex but I don't know, it's not bothering me as much. Oh no ... maybe I'm getting used to it!

I did love all the emotional drama. I thought it was a great set up with the prior "mating" and with Ria fighting her feelings. I think LL does a good job putting people together. I keep trying to figure out who is going to be with who in the future books (like Dane!).

My Giggle Moment:

Every time, every single time, something would happen, Callan, Kane and Jonas would come rushing in. Made me start wondering where they were hiding??!!

Favorite line:

"I say, when Mercury arrives, we just pretend we're not here." Lawe tipped back his whiskey and swallowed in a single drink. "Stay real quiet. Don't make eye contact."
