Destiny will find you.

Izzy has always loved the freedom and adventure of life on the road, but she’s recently decided to settle down—as much as a rogue wolf can. When her boyfriend gets her a job working at a hot Shifter bar, she runs into the last person on earth she expected to see again.

I think I write the age that's appropriate for the story, but my male characters seem to be older than many urban fantasy books, which are young twenties. Because so many I write about are immortal or semi-immortal, age becomes only a number. There are many who are smitten over Maddox, who is an older man with a tender heart. I never exclude any age when writing, so perhaps readers will see more variety as time goes on. :-)(less)

Five Weeks is book three in the Seven series by Dannika Dark. I loved Ms. Dark’s Mageri series and really enjoyed the first two books of this series. But, I have to say that I think this third book is my favorite of the Seven series so far. I loved Izzy and Jericho and also loved revisiting the characters from the first two books.

5 Five Weeks Stars

Jericho and Izzy… These two wow, their chemistry is off the hook.
I think their past has a lot to do with it. But it is the here and now that make them solid.

They go through a lot of ups and downs and trust is a huge thing Izzy needs to feel. But it’s not easy people don’t always come through for her.

But once she takes the leap she is golden. And Jericho has to trust to not only her but his pack that they will do what is best for him and for her. I like that they communicate
This was one of those sweet stories

I liked the characters, I loved their chemistry and how you could see them evolving during this book, something I am beginning to expect when reading Dannika Dark.

What I didn't really enjoy was the fact that it focused too much on their love story (ok ok, I know that was the whole point but still!). I mean, I like my romance, but the only way I can love it is if it's within a good plot, something to keep me hooked up and crazy about the book.
Don't get me wrong
4 stars

This is the third book in the Seven series, which centres around a family of wolf shifters. Each of these books is a complete story and can easily be read as a standalone, but of course the full dynamics are best appreciated when you read the whole series. Fast paced with an interesting storyline, a bit of action, great characters, a fantastic friends-to-lovers storyline and a strong paranormal element, this is a really great read.

I liked Izzy and her independent streak. It must have been so hard being around Jericho, her best friend and having a front row (pun intended) seat to his self destructive behavior.

I am shocked that she moved in with such a douchebag like Hawk, a guy that she knew nothing about, not even his birthday. I felt like she was using him for a place to stay and he knew that so he took liberties and was using/grooming her as well.

Jericho's brothers and band treated Izzy with disrespect. And how Jerich
I'm not much into rock star romances, but Dannika Dark's Five Weeks has many more components than the standard rock star meets sweet girl story. First off, it's about shifters. Thumbs up! Second, the heroine Izzy may appear sweet and fragile, but she's anything but. She calls herself a "wild weed" versus a "dainty flower" and I loved that!! Third, Izzy and Jericho are not meeting for the first time in this book. That was a nice change. They have a history: some good, some bad, but it was a nice ...more

Izzy and Jericho meet again after 20 years apart. They used to be best friends, until one day they parted on not good terms.

This story is about second chances, redemption, tolerance and family.

Five Weeks, third book in the Seven Series of Dannika Dark

Well I like Izzy & Jericho’s story better than the first 2 books in the series, the plot was a little better. Though I really felt that Austin was not acting like a real Alpha with the way he treated Izzy and on what he said on the trailer scene. Its the same with Wheeler and how he's been acting since Reno and April's story.. But I really like the family dynamic of the Weston Pack its just that the way they have been acting contradicts w
2.5 rounding up to a 3

I'm just not into rockers I think, this one was still good, and I finished it in one night, but I was not as into it as the first book in the series. Austin & Lexie are still my favorite Weston Pack couple so far but I am really hopeful for the next book because it features two of the characters I have been really curious about.

I will absolutely continue on in this series because the world is interesting and the Cole brothers certainly keep me entertained.

I'll be honest, I was not looking forward to listening to FIVE WEEKS because Jericho didn't leave much of an impression on me in the other books. He seemed like a pot head, ass hole rocker. But I'm glad to say that Jericho surprised me. He was a complex character with depths and feelings that were hidden under his don't give a shit attitude.

Jericho wants people to think he is the stereo type rocker that parties and sleeps with a different woman every night
Had to take a break at 75% because it was getting wearying how Jericho's brothers in the Weston pack took turns treating Izzy like she was some kinda crack wh*re. I mean, these are supposed to be Jericho's family, but they are anything but supportive. The women in the pack are either ditzier than usual or not around when their opinion was needed...
Well I finally finished it. I had hoped it would get better but it was ultimately very disappointing. It's a good thing I didn't read the series
Sofia Lazaridou
After the not so good in my opinion Six Months I wasn't sure what to expect from this book. The good news is that I wasn't disappointed and I got my hopes up for the next book. The romance was great, there was a big misunderstanding which made things really interesting and it had lots of action. I am pretty sure this was the most action filled book in the series so far and I am not complaining.

The bad news and the reason the book didn't get a 5 star rating was the reaction the pack had to Izzy.

Soooo much better than the last one. Way better communication between the MCs. They seemed much more mature than the last couple. My favorite of the series so far.
In this third installment of Dannika Dark’s Seven Years series, we get Jericho’s story. Jericho is a singer in a rock band and is a wolf shifter. I was on the fence about him previous to this book, as he wasn’t my favorite from the pack of brothers. This was unusual for me, because my guilty pleasure is rock star books. After reading this, I have changed my mind in every way about Jericho. Since this is by Dannika Dark, I should have known I would.

The one who got away. I think we’ve probably all got at least one. Regardless of how deep the regret flows, whether it be a particularly weighty glance from across the room that you wished you had followed up on or the bone deep knowledge that you lost the love of your life, we’ve all got something at which we wish we could have a second chance.

Jericho Cole is a rock star. He’s also a wolf shifter, drop dead sexy and a shell of a man. He’s spent the last two decades trying to forget the one wom

This is a paranormal romance series with shifters. I say this because even when I won these, I seriously thought they were contemporary romances. *facepalm* I was delighted to discover otherwise. FIVE WEEKS delivers, a friend to lovers romance. Izzy is a shifter, who grew up in a mixed wolf and cat family. She was the lone wolf cub. As a result, she hit the road at a young age and befriended Jericho, a wolf, and rocker with a serious heroin addiction. While the two were friends, they never acted ...more
Five Weeks is another wonderfully entertaining read in the Seven series by Dannika Dark.

Izzy is a wolf who never had a pack. After years on the road, she thinks she might find the security with another shifter. But things start going wrong and when she unexpectedly runs into the man that broke her heart years ago her life is turned upside down.

Jericho has reunited with his wolf family and they have formed a new pack. Tired of the drugs, alcohol and stress of being a rock star, Jericho has down s

Now THIS is what I’m talking about! I went into this installment of the Seven series disliking Jericho and wasn’t sure I even wanted to read about his character. What a surprise! The author did a fantastic job of unraveling his layers and allowing us to follow the journey of discovery until we see the truly kind and deeply loving heart he has.

Izzy is also my very favorite female character so far. She is kind but feisty, loyal but strong. She doesn’t take any crap from Jericho (or anyone f

3+ "Better than I thought" Stars!

Well, this was ok, much better than I thought it would be. I didn't like Jericho in the previous books but in his own book he was a sweetheart. Izzy was a good female lead; very strong at times and she has a good heart. The story actually started of very strong and was looking like a solid four star read, but it pettered out toward the 75% mark and started to drag. I'm definitely in for the next book. Finally maybe we will know what happen to Ivy. Happy reading!

Five Weeks by Dannika Dark is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

“Jericho didn't want someone who would tie him down and make him turn in his Les Paul for a Blackberry”

Jericho is still living the hard partying life of a rock star, waking up with two women in bed and feeling no regrets. Why should he? He's not looking for a mate, so …

Hell's bells people! This book was outstanding, amazing, just wow! For fans of the Seven series, Jericho and Izzy are about to become your new favorite couple. The chemistry between these two borderline explodes off the page, and you will love every single delicious second of it. Dannika's writing will utterly blow you away. From page one, you are captivated and sucked right back into the world of the Weston pack. However, one of the things I love about this series is that even if you haven't re ...more

FIVE WEEKS is the third book in the Seven Series. As you may know, I love the Cole brothers and SEVEN YEARS is one of my favorite books.

Her father, the wolf, was distant to her, and her siblings did not take to her. She ran away and she and Jericho found each other. Together they lived as best as they could, sometimes under a bridge. Jericho starts his music career and with the fame comes drugs and women. When Izzy finds him drugged out with yet another woman, she has had enough and does what ...more

We're back up to 5 stars with this third installment in the Seven series. Jericho is the Cole brother who stars in this book, and he's quite possibly the hottest of the bunch. A wolf shifter who is also a rock star, Jericho has a dark history with drugs and danger. Other than his family and his band, he's only ever really cared about one person - Izzy Monroe. Too bad she disappeared on him years ago without a word. When Izzy walks back into his life dating another shifter, Jericho hardly knows w ...more
