I give this a 4.
The story good and the narrator is descent.
The narrator does the whole series and is descent enough but her female characters all tend to sound winey in pitch and there is not much distinction in the various characters. Her general reading voice is good for the non-character parts.
In my opinion this is a novella. It is not listed as such but it’s just 67 pages so I think some people may expect more because it is listed as a full length book. Most of the reviews told me this was a short read and so I went into this thinking of it as a short read. Sometimes I prefer a short read because it gets straight to the point and more importantly straight to the sex.
I got this through Amazon and Audible by using my Kindle Unlimited account to get the ebook for free and then the audio through Audible for the discounted price for having the ebook. It is a great way to go if you want to get some good deals on audiobooks.
This is book #3 in the Paranormal Dating Agency series. Although these are all connected through the PDA they can easily be read as a stand-alone. Each new book either the lady looking for love or the shifter she is being set up with knows the people from the last book in some form or fashion. In this book Talia Barca aka Tally from book #1 is in it at the beginning as friend to the main character Lyss. She is introducing Lyss to the Gerri Wilder who is the match making genius and owner of the Paranormal Dating Agency. The couple from book #2 are referenced indirectly but none of them being mentioned by name.
This book finds Alyssa Moran [AKA] Lyss tired of dating loser but determined not to end up being a lonely cat lady. She wants love and kids and willing to try dating out of her species if Gerri can make it happen for her. Lyss has to travel out of town to meet her shifter date so Gerri makes arrangements for the weekend. After major car trouble along the way she is literally run into by her potential suitor although I don’t know if Lyss ever realizes it. Grayson Green knows he wants her the moment he sets eyes on her but doesn’t know his loyal guards have set this whole meeting in motion. Gray is a Tiger shifter who does not believe in love but who needs a mate and some cubs ASAP to keep from having to battle for his position as the pride leader.
The physical chemistry between these 2 is electric and steamy with lots of sex and even when they are not having sex there is lots of talking about the sex they plan to have later. I do have to say though for a man that is desperate need of cubs, he seems to be a bit too preoccupied with anal sex. I guess he doesn’t know how babies are made.
These books are BBW in nature. I did not select them for that characteristic nor do I read that genre specifically either. I am familiar with what reviewers have slammed some books for in this genre and feel that these books should meet with one’s needs if they do like this category of fiction. I personally just love paranormal romance series and a good deal on price as I am a massive consumer. These books, though their focus is on larger ladies with curves, do not belittle others that are not of the curvy variety. These books encourage being happy with what you got and not letting others tell you that you deserve crap relationships because you are not what they would deem as the ideal body type.
