This book breaks up the series structure nicely so that it doesn't get that repetitive feel to it. The only pattern I see so far, is the journey the hero and heroine take. If that's all that seems to stay the same for this series, I'd say this will end up being on my favorites list.
This takes place in Idaho. Far from the busy streets of Seattle. Rob Sutter is now a has been hockey player, cut short in his career. When I first started reading this book, I had the idea I might not like Rob so much. But as his story unfolded I really started to feel for him and he started to win me over. I loved Kate. After her rocky departure from Vegas, I found her relationship with her grandfather very endearing. It made for a great story.
I'm really liking the progression of this series. It's definitely addicting. While I have plenty of other books I have bought that are new and shiny (the first three were picked up at a used book store), I've put the others in this series ahead of my current read list. I can't wait to see what is in store for the other hockey players....more

But it was really hard for me to get through. Harrison spent so much of the book world building that I think it took away from the characters and the story. But it was good enough that I want to check out the second book, as I've heard from several people that this the typical first book for a series, the next is much better.
I'm not sure what to make of Trent, but I'm excited to see him in the next book, if he shows up, and see what all that stuff was about. Lots of twists and turns that kept it entertaining....more

I had a bit of trouble reading past 80% because there is no second book out yet. It's not even listed yet. I already knew I was going to need the second book pronto after finishing it.
Normally, I'm not a fan of witch books. Never really been into them with few exceptions. This was one that the blurb sounded so interesting that I read it anyway and am forever grateful that I did. While Lizzie may not be top witch in her world, she was a blast to read about as she struggled with hiding and doing the right thing. Oh and watching her and Aiden work around each other. That was fun, too.
The thing I liked first about this was not the hot werewolf (crazy, right?!) but the relationship between Lizzie and Belle. This relationship was the main reason I read the book. I had to find out about this crazy pairing. I loved these two. Always connected but able to shield enough for privacy, but hey, they make sure they can break through if in trouble. I really like this wasn't abused in such a way.
The author threw in plenty of world building and character building enough to keep the reader engaged but not too much to drag the book down. I'm really interested to learn more about Lizzie's past (aaaand maybe how Aiden takes it, if he ever finds out). I want to know more about this fun world and the next adventure that lands in Lizzie's lap.
A new series about werewolves, vampires and witches that is different enough to stand out seems improbable these days. Somehow, Keri Arthur has managed to do just that and create a wonderful new book that I'll be eagerly awaiting for more....more
