Overall Impression: ***
Who/What decided me: The Story Siren (ever amazing)
Short synopsis (Goodreads): I see him and knows what this turmoil inside of me means: He's the one. My forever.
KAYLA is the nature lover, the all-American beauty who can't understand why she's so drawn to distant, brooding Lucas. Adopted as a young child, she has no way of knowing that she's inherited a terrifying-and thrilling-gene that will change her life forever.
LUCAS is dangerous, gorgeous ... and a werewolf. As leader of the Dark Guardians, shape-shifters who gather deep within the state park, he has sworn to protect his pack. But when Lucas finds his true soul mate, his love could put them all in harm's way.
As Lucas and Kayla struggle with their feelings for each other, a greater danger lurks: Humans have discovered the Dark Guardians and are planning their destruction. Kayla must choose between the life she knows and the love she feels certain is her destiny.
My Review: I didn’t go into this novel expecting a whole lot, and in that respect I was fulfilled. The Story Siren said that this would be a fluff read and it was just that. The story line wasn’t overly complex, though you could see it was trying to be. There was a twist that I hadn’t seen coming, but things resolved themselves a little too easily. It’s not all over yet, and I have the rest of the series to read and I will read them, which is saying something.
Overall, not too bad of a book. Not high literature, but not something that you won’t want to finish either (make sense?). Worth the few hours it took me to read it.
