A little on the short side. And because of that, character development was a little lacking, also the plot was somewhat rushed. But I did like Houston and Cam, they were good together. I will definitely continue with this series.
I liked Cameron for the most part, except when she does a TSTL thing (too stupid to live) when she's at a suspect's place of work. As a police detective, she ought to know not to do that -- it's the most rudimentary precaution ever! Of course that gets her into trouble, which means she then needs Houston to rescue her! Hrrrmph.
I liked Houston, too, although seriously, the claiming and mating Cameron without her knowledge? So not cool. At least it bonded him to her but didn't bond her to him, so he didn't take away her right to choose. The one-sided bonding made him more vulnerable to her, but it was good he didn't regret it or spend time fighting it, instead seeming to slip naturally into the role of mate and protector.
As for the plot, I feel like sometimes the author tries to set things up but fails to follow through. For example, when Houston discovers Cameron is a detective, he doesn't seem to have a positive reaction to it. His heart is racing, "his stomach is in his throat", and he curses. But we're never told why he reacted that way. In the next scene he's acting possessive over her and the fact that she's a detective doesn't seem to matter to him one way or another. In another part of the story, Cameron is very hurt that Houston doesn't want her around him during a critical time. She feels rejected and leaves, but after they get together again they never talk about it and she seems to have forgotten that it ever happened. Another loose end which really bugged me is the secondary mystery with Cameron's housemate which was never cleared up. I've looked at the synopsis of the other books in the series and can't tell whether it's addressed in the later books. In any case, the lack of resolution made the story feel unfinished, even though the book had ended.
It was an okay story, entertaining enough but not gripping; it didn't keep me on the edge of my seat or make me feel like I couldn't put it down until I was finished. I'm undecided whether to read the rest of the books in the series.

Really enjoyed the story, plot, characters. Some grammatical errors but nothing too blatant. I love books which involve a whole list of characters which make the series, lots of angst but some sweet moments and some sexy moments, overall a good read.
Houston an ex federal agent, finds Cameron unconscious when her car has crashed and he knows from that moment onwards he can't leave her, he is drawn to her in a way he has never been drawn to anyone before. Cameron is a detective and Houston find himself drawn into her world and the events that spiral from there. Gripping read.
I loved this book and the paranormal element to it, a really great read that kept me captivated from the first few pages and all the way through - had to read this in one session. My goodness there were so many twists and turns that I really didn't expect, I loved that it really wasn't predictable at all. Will most definitely look out for more from this author.
Not only is it in need of an edit, but the werewolf side of things aside, it was so unbelievable. Waking up to Houston calling you his girlfriend, and then happily taking him to a crime scene, when he hasn't introduced himself. Yeah, no, never. Houston is a detective...in the USA, not that we are told that to start with. So Houston is going to crime scenes without explaining to ANYONE who is in, and yet the girl doesn't even question it. being that he isn't an Australian detective, I doubt it would be legal for him to be walking around with a firearm.
Then everyone is dropping dead, good guys turn bad, housemates and boyfriends are involved...there was too much going on, and not enough focus when it was so short.
This whole novel made me angry. It could have been great, but it just wasn't.
Oh my where to start!/...Well Cameron , strong independent and a detective!, who is on the trail of a killer meets Handsome and strong Houston anf falls hard and fast!!. Curses betrayal and adventure and action so gripping you will not realise you have rad the whole book untill the last page hits you and you will be like what??? oh My and want to read it again.
Cant wait to read more of these brothers...YES thats right there are more! you will love them
