"Six Months" is book two in this paranormal series by Dannika Dark. I would have really loved this one but the heroine (April) really ended up ticking me off with her actions towards the people she "loved."

Reno is a shapeshifter who has fallen in love with a human. This is highly frowned upon in the shape shifter community; but Reno just doesn't give a darn. He wants April to be "his" and he will stop at nothing to make that happen. Gosh, he was a sweetheart. I loved how he wanted to take care

3. I liked this one a whole lot more 5 years ago when i read it the first time. I did listen to this on audio though, and I think I will have to blame the narrator on my dislike... She narrates the whole series, so I will either be switching over to reading, or deciding that 5 years is too much of a break and I've outgrown the series and just not finish. ...more
3.5 This author still writes better than I expected

I admit, the previous book was a bit better, but that's only because I liked the chick more. This one, April, well... She was sweet and courageous in her own way, but I just couldn't relate.

Still a great book though and really worth trying out, better than a lot of the shifter books I've encountered before!

Cliffhanger:. No.

Six Months, just like the previous book in the Dannika Dark’s Seven series is a great, steamy paranormal romance, I devoured in matter of hours. It was all kind of sexy, a little bit kinky and fast paced, heartwarming story, from which I got my very needed paranormal fix.

Six Months is book 2 in the Seven series by Dannika Dark. This book focuses on April, the manager at Sweet Treats owned by Lexi from the first book. April has had a very tough life. She lost her father early and her mother was a drug addict. After her mother abandoned them April and her younger sister were raised by her Grandmother. After her Grandmother passed away, her younger sister moved away and April found out that her Grandmother had accrued a very large debt, spread around with vario

5 Six Months Stars

April and Reno are my favorite couple from this whole series and I am going to tell you why.

April is this strong and fiercely independent person because she HAS to be. No one has ever really been there for her. Not her mother, not her sister, heck even Trevor her best friend, he tends to see the smiles and the façade she has mastered, he doesn’t see the pain she has underneath.

April is this corky, smart, and clumsy girl who is one heck of a great friend. Boy, this girl has t
4.5 "Reno is my Hero" Stars for both the story and narration!

I love the complex characters and plethora of unique story lines in the Weston Pack! Moreover the combination of Dannika Dark's fantastic writing and Nicole Poole's expert narration has quickly become one of my PNR favorites! Although Six Months has a very different flavor from Seven Months, in that we are dealing with very different personalities and circumstances, I found it to be equally as compelling and addicting! Now I can't wai

Let me start by saying HOW MUCH I expected to like this book. I was impressed by the Mageri series and I really enjoyed the first book in the Wesley pack series Seven Years. When I saw that it was the start of a series I pre-ordered the next part Six Months. Unfortunately, this book felt like it was written by someone else and not edited at all.

I guess I liked Reno, but I still don't feel like I know anything about him. He wasn't fleshed out. I didn't feel any connection between him and April,
I just have to get this off my chest while the feelings are still fresh

**SPOILERS** don't ask why I didn't hide it.... I'm feeling open at the moment

I cried :( I mean Reno and April did end up together no doubt. They are really going to be 'living in the moment'. Especially when April will be aging at normal speed and Reno will be aging at really slow shifter speed.

I thought by the end of the book they will have found some kind of loophole so that they could age together... Like what other book

There's a buzzing sensation when you have chemistry with someone. It's like there are invisible threads connecting your bodies and igniting into sparks, and the residual pulse bounces back in shockwaves, growing stronger with each second.
I felt that with Reno.

I felt it too. Man, did I feel it. This couple's sexual chemistry was unmis
Six Months is the second installment in Dannika Dark's light paranormal romance series titled Seven. To make this review short and sweet, I thought I'd get right to the point:

I enjoyed...
-Learning more about the shifter world featured in this series.
-The great storytelling...and the men ;)
-Seeing more of the characters from the first book.

I did not enjoy...
-The weak heroine (IMO) the point of annoyance.
-The heroine's continued references to "my inner voice". It felt too much like FSOG's rep
So many emotions.

Oh I could go crackers with this book.

Why am I mad? Well, I'll tell you.

This. Was. Not. How. The. Book. Was. Supposed. To. End. I mean really Ms. Dark, why would you do that? But I do get that it is an uncovential ending. But it is just wrong. I was waiting for a loophole, I still am to be honest. Hello there is the possibility of a vampire and a mage so what gives?

There was a lot to love about this. It brought back all my favourite characters from Seven Years, i.e. all the Cole boys, but took the spotlight away from the Weston Pack and shone it on someone I hadn’t expected: April Frost, a human. But it didn't blow my mind.

Some readers won't like April as an MC. There were times I really wanted to slap her. For someone who shuns the ‘dumb blonde’ mould, she sure knew how to act fifty shades of stupid. Drowning in debt and being pursued for men by
Six Months is book two in the Seven series by Dannika Dark.

After reading the first book in the series I was truly hoping it will get better but April is really hard to love.. There is independent and there is just pure stubbornness.. I did try to understand April all through out the book but all her actions towards everyone is really hard to accept especially with Reno.

What really kept me going was the family dynamics.. How they treated women and children and how proctective they are of each o
I am going to change it up a bit by starting with a disclaimer. I am a huge fan of Dannika Dark and all her books. Okay so now that, that’s done, I can continue. This book is the second in the Seven Years Series. The first book, also titled Seven Years, tells the story of Austin and Lexie’s romance. Austin is the packmaster of the Weston Pack. This time around, the story centers around Reno, Austin’s brother, and April, the human manager of Lexie’s candy store. April and Reno meet briefly in Sev ...more

While Six Months is really well written, I had a lot of trouble understanding the main character April. She has had quite a bit of trouble with loan sharks since her grand-mother died, but instead of discussing this with her friends, she does things in hiding, and ends up in some very bad situations that could have been avoided. She is very close to TSTL syndrome, which made me sad, because I really enjoyed her character in Seven Years!

Hitting rock bottom. I think it happens to all of us at some point, for some reason. I don’t think there’s one of us that miss it, not really. It’s just a matter of how deep and how sharp the rocks. And just like we all hit it, I’m pretty sure the same thing brings us out of it, one way or another – Hope.

Six Months is, ultimately, a story about hope. Hope that we can all set down our baggage long enough to let someone in, let someone see us and love us for all the bad and good. Hope that we def

Man, I’m conflicted.... I love the story but, once again, I’m having trouble with the characters - well, just one in this instance, April. But first, the good stuff - Reno. He was AMAZING! I was intrigued with him in book one so was really anxious to read his story (and very happy it came in book two.). He did not disappoint! In fact, he was even better than I imagined. Throughout this story, he was absolutely everything one would dream of in a hero. So much so that it was hard to read what he c ...more

WOW! I have a new vice. I really enjoyed the first book but this one was even better. I absolutely love the chemistry that is developing with the characters. Some reviews of the first book complained of a lack of character development but I think it's plain to see that as the series continues a little more is revealed about the characters with each book. I can see where things are being set up for future books.

I loved the balance of humor, action, steaminess and just plain old every day life. I

I dont know what to say, this was an amazing book and just as good as the first one. I laughed, I cried, and I loved very second of it. I couldnt put this one down. I can not wait for Five Weeks to come out as I just know it will be just as amazing as the first two books in this series. These are a must read. I highly recommend, you wont be disappointed.

I did not expect this story to be so dark. April seems like such an upbeat person, but wow, she is dealing with some really heavy problems. In spite of that she is a good person even if she makes some crazy mistakes. I can understand why she doesn't want to let Reno in since she tries to take care of things by herself. Still, going to see a loan shark by herself at night is beyond stupid. I get that she is young, but that is beyond insanely dumb. I loved the chemistry between April and Reno

I couldn't put this book down from the first paragraph I read. It was THAT good. I was also so different from what I've been reading that it was like a breath of fresh air. This story isn't for everyone though. It was heartbreaking, dark, lonely and at certain moments in the story you wanted to bash April's (heroine's) head in because she was being so stubborn and secretive.

I was surprised by how much I learned to like Reno. When I read the first book (my review

Reread. I enjoyed the book but it took me a while longer to get through because one it's a reread but also April can get somewhat annoying. It drove me nuts she wouldn't reach out for help. Also her friend Trevor pisses me off. He sounds like a know it all and his "protectiveness" was borderline douchebag doesn't want her to have a life without him territory. Trevor is her BFF but he wasn't very friend like. He constantly rags on April. I also didn't like how everyone jumped down

There was no doubt in my mind that this would be another incredible book by Dannika Dark and of course, I wasn't disappointed. What took me by surprise though, is how much I fell for Reno. I knew if end up liking him, but I never expected to fall in love with this mysterious man. But just like April, I was completely enthralled by him. I love it when a man is protective of his woman and I love it even more when that man can respect and love her enough to let her go no matter how much it hurts. I ...more

Ok, so this book overall was ok. Reno was great, and a side character Trevor stole my heart. There are so many side characters who's stories I'd love to read.

The Problem- April, the h. She annoyed the snot out of me and really diminished my enjoyment of this book. Her decisions were so... just unnecessary. She had a support system if only she wasn't too prideful to ask for help. Or just to let someo

Six Months is an amazingly written book about flaws, strength, courage, love, hope, patience, acceptance, and forgiving not just others but also one’s self.
April Frost was someone that you meet every day, a person who has been knocked down more times than they can remember, but who always gets back up. She tried to meet each new challenge head on, not always with the best outcome, but she still tried. She wanted to owe no one, yet owed everyone, and when the final straw broke that proverbial cam
