When I picked up this book I was looking for that WOW moment. I thought I was going to be so over the top in love with it and it was going to be added to my new favorite series. And so of coarse that is just not the case. I had a few problems with the story..

I don't think there was enough depth to the story. Its hard to put my finger on it but I felt the story a little lacking. Its not a very long book so I guess some things where rushed and overlooked.

The instant love triangle and the promise of even more love interests to come. I hate love triangles. I hate hate hate them so I was instantly put off when this was brought up. Plus she doesn't get it on with the guy I decided I liked the most. Why do you girls always do this to me? If we are going to have to deal with a love triangle at least give me some getting it on moments with the guy that I picked. I thought her screwing the one guy was kinda rude to my guy.

Even with that I think this series has a lot of potential. I really liked the world and I thought Secret was a great character. This was a great start to the series though and I am definitley intrigued. I am hoping we can put an end to this love triangle'ness though. And if we bring in more guys for her to juggle around, I might be done with the series. There is only so much I can handle. So I might take a peak at a few other reviews before commiting myself to another book. I am still giving this book 3.5 stars because it did keep me intrigued.

  1. I can tell you that all the guys present in this one will be in next few books. This is my only real issue with the series but I still love it and I hope she picks the guy I want.

    2. I am so not difficult! But I do hate love triangles. And I have a feeling this is going to be a love hexagon or something crazy!

    3. Yeah... Secret does have several men which is a tad too Anita Blake for my tastes but the kickass action and sarcasm more than make up for her love life IMO. So suck it up buttercup!

    5. I will forever think of Anita Black/Merry Gentry synonymously. I haven't read this book. There are a ton of comments about it though, so I might need to at least read it to find out what the fuss is about.

  4. I love this series, there are some really great original story lines in them. But yes, perhaps too many guys. And I just have to say it: I HATE LUCAS! Lol. And no, not team Desmond either. He is too wimpy.
