I started this book liking it a lot…. Then you get to 80% and yes I know it is a paranormal and of course what is happening in this book is all made up but it goes so far I can’t even wrap my mind around it. First as a parent there was a part that was completely wrong and unbelievable to me. I can’t say without giving away huge spoilers but for a parent to make that decision and think it was ok.. I just could not stretch my head around that at all. Then you get a bunch of things put into the last part of the book that honestly I could not even figure out was happening because honestly it was so confusing and none of it even made sense to me at all. So I want to give it 3 stars because I really did like the first 80% then everything got so confusing and the part where Terrance made a decision I could not even.. I can’t even put into words how mad that made me, dropped this down for me.
I write not only for my own pleasure, but for the pleasure of my readers. I can’t remember a time in my life when I haven’t written and told stories. When I’m not writing, I’m dreaming about writing, doing something wild and adventurous, or trying to make the world a better and more open minded place to live in. I adore beautiful men, and I know I’m not alone in this! Eroticism between consenting adults, in all its many forms is the icing on the cake of life!
