Eh. Thats how I feel about this one. Eh.

I thought the dialogue was corny sometimes. Or maybe just didn't make sense in some spots. I thought the characters got defensive and would spout out some harsh words too fast without much provoking. And the stuff they said didn't make much sense. For example the scene where Melanie meets Kade's sister Cailin. She gets all angry and starts swearing at her, when I think his sister had a right to be a little upset and worried about her brother. But I just didn't think that the way Melanie reacted was consistent with her personality through the rest of the story.

I thought their first date went WAY too fast. They were awkward and barley talked, while they ate. But they seemed to get over that a little too quickly, and all the shyness disappeared once Melanie decided what she wanted. She could barley put a full sentence together one minute and then 10 minutes later she was... well, open to all of Kade's suggestions. yuck. Too much.

Melanie annoyed the crap out of me. She KNEW from the start that she wasn't interested in Lance, that she definitely wanted Kade. But instead of voicing that she lets them fight it out. Which yeah, it was a cool scene, but it seemed like there should have been more to it. It could have been simple for her to speak up and say "Yeah I want Kade, Lance doesn't have a chance, BUT I need some time to process all this." Instead she stood there and watched when she KNEW she wanted Kade. I think it would have been better if she was racing to get there to stop it. But once she got there, the fight had already begun she wasn't allowed to step in to stop it or something like that. I just think by her standing there being all indecisive she looked like a coward, and weak, no better than Tracy, Kade's ex. I would think that an alpha would be attracted to someone who is strong and knows what they want, but whatever.

Linda I agree with you! Her not stopping the fight bothered me. If Kade wasn't honorable Lance could have died for nothing. I think your scenario would have been MUCH better! I didn't respect her after she just stood there. Doesn't seem like an Alpha's mate to me either & I'd have a hard time as a pack member respecting her....
