Amaranta Costa uses the fact she’s a Kanima to steer clear of relationships excerpt with her mate, Marisol. But when Marisol is stolen from her Gavin Ford forces his way into her life and she needs the help of him and his pack.  Gavin wants both the women and is determined to have them. He knows that Amara’s defiance is just a fa├žade.

I really wanted to like this book. The shapeshifting world is slightly different from the usual, there’s a good plot with adventure and mystery, and FFM books are hard to find yet often great to read. The characters are many layered and fascinating, all very individual, yet they blend together in a believable way. The scene of her playing in shifted form is great.

But the book is littered with typos, grammatical errors, misused words and plot glitches. Almost every one of these things would have been easy to fix had someone just taken the time and effort to do it. She gets a throw-away cell phone from the truck, makes a call, destroys it and throws it in the ravine – then has to run through the forest a long way to get to her truck. Later he puts his number into her cell phone and puts it in her hands. She goes upstairs and there is her cell phone plugged into the charger. Annoying issues like that took the shine off the story for me.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
