Enjoyable but not for me...
Reviewed in the United States on January 4, 2020
In short, I was looking for a unique shifter romance with the Alpha & Omega positions; but this is more suited to those who prefer romance without any intimacy details at all. This series is missing so many other character development details that I need in a story; but are given whimsical lines after the fact, instead of covering them in an epilogue. I can't continue when this is not what I was looking for. I gave 5 stars because this story deserves respect even though it's not for me.
When I read a series, I want to be transported from everyday worries & get lost in the talents of authors. The more important details are necessary for me to become immersed. While I truly believe this series is enjoyable, it's missing adult-level intimacy & so many details. The details missing are like how book 1 mentions mating & a wedding several times throughout the book; but only half-heartedly gives cliff notes that the wedding occurred, when other books would actually give it a chapter to help grow the characters.
Another example, from book 2, I honestly thought that Charles & Anna were not having intercourse, other than that 1 time in the 1st book. There were moments it seemed like they were, but since the author chose to not give any intimacy details, I assumed Anna wasn't ready yet. Apparently, my assumption was wrong & it took until over halfway through this book to realize the truth. I wasn't looking for smut dialogue; but I hoped for a lot more than what I read. Since the action wasn't suspenseful because the outcome was always telegraphed, at least give intimacy detail or something more. This book was a lot better at hiding storyline details until the "parking garage attack" scene; then I knew what was going to happen later.
I also had issues identifying which character, if any, was speaking. The clues were not as clear, since 1st, 2nd, & 3rd person dialogue was used throughout this series. I had difficulty deciphering who was speaking; which made me have to reread many sections to imagine the story or to understand what was going on.
