I started out reading this book incorrectly, so I ended up having to readjust my thinking. I THOUGHT Doug wanted to introduce Cody to Olivia because he wanted Cody and Olivia together. My mistake.
I also suspected that Doug knew about Cody's feelings for Olivia, or he at minimum suspected Cody had feelings.
It seemed like the transitions from event to event in this book were smoother than in the first book. I liked Cody. I am on the fence about Olivia. I think its more because I dislike the whole premise of " I am not going to tell you what's going on because I need to keep you safe". The man was military and a former sheriff. She didn't have much faith in him.
This is the second book I have read in this series where the shifter brother has a human mate and also has family members that would passionately object to their mates. But, the parents nor family members never make an appearance.
I always thought part of being a part of the shifter clan was their superior recuperative power. I don't think this group of shifters lucked out and got that gift. I didn't feel like the paranormal aspect went much beyond that the family could shift.
This book had elements of BDSM in it, but a softer version than in other books I have read. Maybe softer isn't the right word. Lighter? Less intense?
I liked Cody and Olivia during the times they were actually together. They spent a lot of time holding on to their secrets. They finally found their HEA as well as their peace of mind.
It was an interesting read, but I am looking forward to reading Drake's book.
