I found this book a big surprise. It's one of those stories that sneaks up on you and won't let you put it down.

I enjoyed the story a lot. I enjoyed the way the characters - Lance and Andrew - took the time to actually know each other before their declarations of 'mate' and 'love' came into play. I love the fact Lance is emotionally and physically damaged from his life as an orphan. I also liked how Andrew was willing to be patient with Lance. I found it sweet.

The beginning of this book was great. I loved the slowly developing relationship between Lance and Andrew. Since Lance doesn't trust easily, I liked seeing Andrew work for Lance's trust. That is essentially what the story revolves around. Lance finding out about himself, his nature, being a shifter, learning to trust people again and building a home. I found the book very engaging. I like the characters and this slightly different take on vampires and shifters as well as the world they inhabit.

While I enjoyed the beginning immensely, the second half of the book became a bit too much for me. The story was very cute but once Lance and Andrew admitted their feelings for each other, the story was overridden with declarations of love and commitment. Overuses of 'I love you', 'my mate', 'my love' I got frustrated and annoyed with it. It was too lovey dovey for me. I was also confused in the beginning. I couldn't figure out whether Lance was just turning or already an experienced shifter because of the way the sentences were worded made it sound like he's done it before. In addition, the ending felt too rush. It was like Lance took a 180 turn from being so timid and scared to being overly confident and bold within a few paragraphs. It was odd and felt off.

In the end, the story was very good. I liked it a lot. While I had some issues, I still enjoyed it enough to the point I didn't want to put the book down. It was cute and slow in the beginning while a bit mushy in the end but still ended up being surprising. I look forward to seeing where this series goes because Lance definitely has an important mission in his future!

Nikyta *Miss Forgetful* It's definitely cute! And fun! Not much smut, though
